Dear Editor, Re: P.M’s village bestows title This story is a silent example of begging without pride. Do you have to give away centuries of cultural, traditions and your lineage to bring business and employment?
Dear Editor, Interesting reading Minister Loau’s comments. The Minister should know better if he has this office about the causes and the solutions of this problem. He completely contradicts all tested theories about the issue.
Dear Dr. Khulmann, People choose to believe in what they deem as ‘believable’. So if L.D.S. Missionaries go about their business proselytizing in the streets of Apia using a belief system alien to yours ...then welcome to the real world . Who cares if the L.D.S are not a member of the World Council of Churches?
Re: S.W.A’s original sin It is not good business practice to publicize customers names with accounts in arrears. The S.W.A. can reduce its accounts receivable and to improve its cash flow by using a ‘simple and effective’ method.
Dear Editor, Re: “This is where we belong. This land is our grave.” This is a case where the law fails the truth. I say nothing of justice Clark who’s a young man who only reads a piece of paper in front of him so I don’t blame him.
Re: Don’t shoot the messenger, Mr. President! Nice editorial. There’s a lot to digest and to make sense of the current “pandemonium” and chaotic state of politics in the US. There is definitely quite a different mood and attitude in the country right now.
Dear Editor The United Nations Report mentioned on the front page of yesterday’s issue showing concerns about the joblessness in Samoa is a matter not to be taken lightly.
Re: Samoan traditions Malo Ale, I hope our people will wake up and understand what we’ve been trying to enlightened them for quite sometime. Christianity has made a real man (Jesus) from the metaphorical and Astrological story in the bible.
Editor, First of all, my thanks to the Afioga Gatoaitele Savea for a snippet of the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (hereafter noted as the “Church of Jesus Christ” or “Church”) in his response to Dr. Kuhlmann.
Disappointed with the EPC, from these people’s comments seems like the power usually went off now and then, quite clear the organisation fail to come up with a solution to sustain the supply of electricity across the country.
Dear Editor, The Samoa Water Authority has done one thing right; they published the names of some delinquent account holders not withstanding their social prominence. Well done, SWA! Maybe the Observer could give you a page once a month so you can list all your outstanding accounts complete with name, village and amount due.
Re: Should Seiuli back Super rugby team? Nope...He’s strictly NFL and NCAA. And looking at the anti-Americanism that is spreading throughout the world recently, I’d say that he’d be more prone to be defensive about compromising American sporting culture with Commonwealth of Nations Rugby and Rugby League.
Re: Christian principles, Samoan customs and “six million Jews” Interesting and definitely thought provoking. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, our current prophet Russel M. Nelson revealed in the last General Conference that we are not “Mormons”, we are members of the Church of Jesus Christ as that is the true name of the church as it was restored by the Prophet Joseph Smith in 1830.
Dear Editor Re: Campaign calls on the Rock Dream on. Seiyuli Dwayne Johnson will just see this as an empty, no-returns investment proposal, like hundreds others that he will have come across.
Dear Editor, Re: P.M. condemns “beautiful tribute” comments These guys were in a funeral procession. Their cars are ‘muscle’ cars, meaning at whatever gear you are in and you press the gas pedal, the tyres squeal.
Dear Editor, Re: Samoa Authority debtors Blessed are the lucky chosen few who have such privilege to qualify for the free handouts. Sorry are the underprivileged majority who struggle to make ends meet and fulfill their emphasis task of the bargain, to help carry Samoa over their shoulders in sun, wind and rain.
Dear Editor, Re: Campaign calls on the Rock I don’t think a team backed by NFL players and entertainers in the US of Pacific island heritage makes any sense. For one, the financial cost and burden to support a team continuously is not a trivial matter, and these sports stars and personalities would be asked to risk theirs and their family’s own financial futures in a venture they probably have only a passing interest in.
Apia played host to another cruise ship and its passengers of tourists yesterday morning — the second vessel to visit our shores in five days. The word at Matautu wharf yesterday is that another cruise ship is due in Apia today, which if true would make it vessel # 3 in six days. Apia residents would probably be unfazed with the increasing regularity of visiting cruise ships, but ask a tourism expert and they would probably make reference to “cruise tourism”.
Prime Minister Tuilaepa Dr. Sa’ilele Malielegaoi last week criticised the performance of nurses in Samoa and accused them of “unprofessional behaviour”. Our reporter Yolanda Lavata’i in a Street Talk hears the views of members of the public and what they think of Tuilaepa’s criticism.
Think a minute…Are you a “yes man” or woman? Do you always say yes to everybody who asks you for a favor or help? Some of us just cannot say no to others. The problem is our “yes” sometimes means stress—to us and our family.
I wish to use this opportunity to convey our sincerest gratitude to the People’s Republic of China, through the Embassy in Samoa and the Hunan International Business Vocational College for Continuing to support the development of Samoa and its people. 99 women and men have been trained, skilled and developed – to become seamstress and fashion designers, through your kind assistance.
P.M. on Church leaders It seems Prime Minister Tuilaepa can’t leave members of clergy alone. During a radio programme last week, he had plenty to say about Church Ministers. For instance, he reminded them that Church Ministers were only taught on spiritual matters, not on Economics.
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.
