Dear Editor, Re: P.M. blames bus drivers It is the habit of your love the P.M. to try to make others responsible for what he himself should be responsible for. This is just another example of him doing this.
Dear Editor, Re: P.M. blames bus drivers Prime Minister Tuilaepa is correct in telling passengers to take the drivers to task. How many of you travel regularly by bus?
My view is such that the priesthood in Samoa should not be taxed as now ordered by Government and proclaimed by them upon the housetops. Mr. Afamasaga Toleafoa Faamatala in his view as published in the 16th of April 2017 issue of this newspaper says he does not know but wishes the government law on the matter should be obeyed.
Re: Prisoners’ lawyer intervenes Ia poo le a la se kala mai le koeaiga o Tialavea Tionisio Hunt e uiga i laga kama o Mr. Low risk prisoner Filipaina? What have you to say about your so-called low risk prisoner now?
Re: Govt. and debts Nope. It is these noisy activists - hypocrites who live on freehold lands both in Apia and abroad - who cannot stomach their family members turning customary land into something which they can increase their own positions in life.
Re: P.M. blames bus drivers I have to agree with the P.M. here. And also enabling the public to speak up is not that ridiculous suggestion. I don’t believe he is saying the passengers are to blame at all, merely pointing out that they don’t have to put up with irresponsible behaviour by selfish and arrogant drivers.
Dear Editor, Re: Reverend Lale’s call I’m very disappointed with this Reverend’s comments of how the churches can fund the money to fill the hole the PM and his government spent on their own needs.
Dear Editor, Re: Industry targets smart tourism $2.1billion tala that is equivalent of 1 billion USD. And yes, come 2019 we are coming to help the Tourism Industry of Samoa.
Dear Editor, In response to Taula Victor Tyan’s letter titled “My, oh my what a speech,” I want to say that leaders in Samoa are not born leaders they become leaders through a careful selection process. Extended families appoint their leaders and bless their leaders whom we call our Matai.
Dear Editor, Re: The Govt. and debts People with brains are actually assessing the situation from a higher platform than your shallow noisy spouting. Think a bit more than your immediate little world, and you'll find that there are far more family dispute cases relative to genealogy and properties and titles ownership sitting idle at the Land and Titles Court, than there are in the magistrate and supreme courts combined.
Dear Editor, Re: Landslide at Tuaialamu It’s time to change the routes. Coastal roads are a bit dangerous for kids. Too close to houses with no protection barriers on the road.
Dear Editor, Handling and preparing food is always important in preventing foodborne illness. But the occurrence of a flood may cause damage that could increase the risk of food borne illness.
Re: How Church can help Govt. raise $2.7million fund With all due respect Mr. Reverend Ieremia, I totally disagree with the people of Samoa giving the government that money as you have said. If your church wants to help so be it but that’s NOT appropriate
Re: How Church can help Govt. raise $2.7million fund Church and state, the perfect union in enslaving the people. We took upon ourselves and accept the sheep mentality not to question anything but to go along with anything the two entities tells us.
Dear Editor, Re: Child slavery slammed Nicely done. “And yes people are attracted to small children and that is why parents use their children because people tend to feel sorry for the children.” You got a point there.
Dear Editor, Some years back, I came across this prayer by Pope John XXIII delivered as an open apology to the Jewish people and the Nation of Israel, with regards to the Crucifixion of Jesus. I quote below:
Dear Editor, Re: U.S. Ambassador Brown comes bearing 5 computers, two printers and a long list. That was some list U.S. Ambassador Scott Brown trotted out last week about what great things America First is doing in Samoa.
There is no denying this simple fact. While life in Samoa is not exactly problem free, it must be said that it is better than most places - near and far. We don’t have to look far. Following the recent devastation of Cyclone Gita, when we look across to the plight of our brothers, sisters and families in the Kingdom of Tonga, we can only be grateful.
Tropical Cyclone Gita devastated a number of Pacific island countries last week. In Samoa, it left many families at Lelata, Ma’agao and Vini devastated. What was going through your mind during the cyclone? And what would you do differently if another cyclone comes? Nefertiti Matatia asked in today’s Street Talk and this is what people said:
Think a minute…Mr. Louis Joline was awarded one of America’s “Fittest Over 50.” At the age of 65, He had completed 61 marathon races. Remember, a marathon is running 26 miles! You would not think this man needs help or encouragement to run.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Talofa lava! As an Indigenous Samoan, Let me first pay my respect to the Indigenous Owners of this land and thank their ancestors, past present and future, for letting me stand before you on these sacred cultural lands!
THE BEST A big fa’amalo to the skilled and courageous E.P.C. staff who braved the winds and rain to restore power from broken and dangerous power lines on Cross Island Road on Wednesday night in pitch darkness.
Samoa’s Ava Exports is looking promising, with exports expected to increase in the next couple of years. Ava exports was Samoa’s second largest export commidity from 1998 to 2001 until some European countries led by Germany imposed restrictions on the Pacific Kava Trade. Samoa’s exports of Ava in 1998 was just under $20m.
