Dear Editor, I write to comment on your recent news headline where your newspaper had referred to as “prominent lawyer Unasa Iuni Sapolu being the leader of a new party”.
Dear Editor Can the Government stop people from texting and driving? I am 100% confident that the Government can stop people from texting and driving, but it does not seem to be doing it so.
Dear Editor I write in response to a letter by Ropati V published in your newspaper. “Nothingness” is defined by Google as “the absence or cessation of life or existence” so was the lack of any recorded life form before creations in the Book of Genesis a proof that God Almighty did not exist before then?
Re: Pohiva on China debt All them islands are so small and its so easy for the Chinese to buy them off. Our leaders think that having them build huge buildings, Airport and so on is ok.
Dear Editor Will metered parking benefit Samoa and the government in the long run or will it be another monetary burden for the government? If the meters themselves can regulate their own activities then maybe, yes, they can be a source of income.
Dear Editor, Ropati V. I’m afraid you are confusing two very different things. Evolution is not the same thing as origins. Evolution is what happened after the earth began. Evolution does not in any way address HOW it began. That is a completely different issue.
Dear Editor Re: An open letter Thanks John, I will say age is just a number and you are a pro on social media so don’t give up easily because of loose “side issues.” It comes with the territory.
Re: Samoa needs a facelift Maybe he is talking about other hotels and restaurants. He seems to love the Tanoa Tusitala. I notice this too. The lack of smiling by customer service staff.
Dear Sir, I don’t/won’t join in the forum and I apologise that I won’t be checking for follow up comments or letters due to the unrealistic, silly, side issues and unrelated biblical quotes that some sprout off with, they are just ridiculous.
Dear Editor, Re: Bananas distribution I say the commercial farmers given priority and the small holder farmers be given a gradual development programme to get them up to speed.
Re: Unasa heads Samoa First I have one request for the new Samoan First party to include some of these agendas in your Manifesto and that is to dismantle the N.G.O’s under the watchful eye of the U.N. that are changing the landscape of our political system and our culture.
Re: Minister responds to banana distribution claims Minister, you’re not fairly distributing the bananas. So the big guns will export 1st but are they willing to share this market with their smaller counterparts, who are now behind and trying to catch up?
Dear Editor, Well madam Wendy, on second thoughts towards your ‘unbelieving views’, reminds me ‘The Parable of the Weeds Among the Wheat’ our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ spoke of on one incident as recorded by Mathew’s Gospel; 13:24-30, with its main message was to ‘be patience and maintain preaching on repentance’.
Dear Editor, Re: M.O.H and N.H.S. Merger The Commission of Inquiry report on the N.H.S./M.O.H. merger and Nurses grievances makes for some depressing reading.
Dear Editor, Re: Nurses Association questions Police charges What in the world just happened here? One baby died and they went ahead and injected the second child? This is insane.
Dear Editor, I write with regards to your editorial “Parking meters a necessary headache.” I would say Sir, that parking meters should have been happening many years ago to curb the bludgers’ silly thought though, that parking free in downtown Apia CBD is a right rather a privilege of generosity.
Last week when Pacific leaders gathered in Samoa for the Pacific Island Forum’s Foreign Ministers meeting, some interesting points were raised by a couple of leaders in relation to an issue that affects many small island countries all over the world.
“Parking meters is the way of the future. That’s clearly the message from the Government after several parking meters were installed in different parts of the Apia Towship this week. What do you think about paying to park in Samoa? Our reporter, Adel Fruean, asked members of the public in today’s Street Talk and this is what they said:
Think a minute…Recently the biggest-selling book in America was about the end of the world. Sometimes watching the world’s news is like watching a horror movie, isn’t it? You know that the 20th century had more people killed in wars than all the other centuries of history combined!
On 9 July 2008, Mr. Aaron Kama, a Lecturer at the U.S.P. Alafua Campus presented to the interested public a very stimulating topic titled: Growing money on trees.
Those parking meters A lot has been said about the Government’s move to install parking meters - good and bad.
The spears flew towards the youth on the hill, whistling as they cut through the air. Grinning, Queen Medb’s general drew his sword, eager to take back to his Queen the head of this warrior whom they called the Hound of Ulster. He had no doubt his spears would find their mark.
