Gatoaitele Savea Sano Malifa

“It’s like using a thief to catch a thief,” reveals the thief hunter, Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi.

Let’s face it. A lot has been said about the invisible chap called Ole Palemia - none of which is endearing to the ears of those he’s been teasing from wherever he’s hiding anyway - and yet it seems as if he’s just biding his time as he’s waiting patiently for the right moment when he knows, it’s safe to strike again and again.

Dear Editor Re: M.P. queries Govt. over state of passport investigation “We shouldn’t think about only Samoa’s safety, as overseas people are using Samoa’s passport as a gateway to other big countries like Europe,”said Olo Fiti.”

Dear Editor Re: Samoa Airways $4.8b insurance cover revealed You know how con artists prey on their victims, they use their wives, kids and family as selling points. I hope this is not what Seiuli is trying to do here.

Dear Editor Re: Such fantastic fun up at the ‘technically bankrupt’ Samoa Rugby Union The Rugby Migraine Infecting Both Codes. The Samoa Rugby Union and their money woes are just as painful a migraine as the Rugby League Samoa and their disastrous record at this year’s World Cup.

Why we need Samoa Airways

Talofa Lava and Welcome to this important and historical occasion for our people and our country.

Between the Lines

LEARNING THE AIRLINES LINGO Heard the term “close in bookings”? Chances are, you are one of the many Samoans who fall into that category used by airlines to describe your booking when you travel.

SLOW DOWN PLEASE Those midnight rally drivers might want to be careful out there.

YOU’RE THE BEST! Admiration and thanks to the school pupils, supervised by teachers, for manning the pedestrian crossings near schools and keeping their many fellow students and drivers safe on our roads.

Think a minute…Thomas Edison is one of history’s greatest inventors with more than 1,000 inventions and patents to his name. It is interesting that he gives much of the credit to his mother.
