Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, Re: P.M. raised $10,000 to send stigmata girl to Rome After reading this article, it was not hard to tell that both P.M. Tuilaepa and former C.C.C.S Reverend, Opapo (Stigmata’s father) are not what they appear to be.

Re: Mother’s struggles I can never understand why these people say or perhaps it is mistakenly written that “we don’t work”.

Re: Duco and government Ele Opeloge will give Samoa the same exposure if there is an event organized for her the way N.Z. presented Valerie Adams with her medal from that drug cheat.

We really need another airline that is not affiliated to an existing one which is also flying in and out of Samoa. In other words, competition please, not a cosy relationship where you both maintain the status quo at the expense of the trapped customers

Think a Minute

Think a minute…We’ve heard the expression, “The devil is in the details.” In World War II, General Dwight Eisenhower was the Supreme Commander of the Allied forces who defeated Adolf Hitler and his massive Nazi army.

What changes in the police ministry are needed?
