Who is more dangerous? Pig head thrower or two convicted criminals on the run?

You’ve got to hand it to this Government. As far as being thorough with immigration paper work goes, Prime Minister Tuilaepa Dr. Sa’ilele Malielegaoi’s administration deserves an award. Nothing gets past them, absolutely nothing. Let’s think about this for a minute.

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, The current case between Laauli Leauatea Polataivao and his own political party (H.R.P.P.) reveals some shocking discoveries of real issues about the by-laws of the H.R.P.P.

Re: Candidates stand for H.R.P.P. If only H.R.P.P. are running in a district, how can anybody other than a person who must declare loyalty to the P.M., win this district?

Re: Church Ministers hearing Corruption in Samoa – including the government - can be attributed to the failure of Christian churches in Samoa to maintain moral support and uphold moral discipline in the community.

Talofa Samoa! I am happy to start this Health Column by informing the Public that METI has now received official support from government for its Healthy Living programme.

Between the Lines

A prominent member of the community had his house broken into where the thief ransacked it looking for valuables to take.

So as he gratefully accepted a donation of boots from an Australian Good Samaritan, Prime Minister thanked Jo Mikarna for 3000 pairs, only to learn there were 4000.

A simple sign will do Samoans who support their national airline, Samoa Airways, want the management to know something.

Think a Minute

Think a minute…Recently a 102-year-old woman was playing a game of golf. On a 100-yard long hole she thought she had lost her ball, only to discover she had hit it straight into the cup. A record hole-in-one by a 102-year-old woman! Who says we don’t get better with age!
