Dear Editor, Domo arigatou gozaimasu I live in the Tanoaleia/Vaivaseuta area and water quality used to be a big problem. A 25 micron fibre filter will clog with sediment and sludge with ‘clean’ water running, in one week.
Dear Editor, It’s been interesting to read a number of issues covered in the paper lately and thought I’d comment of a few things: Government Debt A number of comments in Letters to the Editor this week caught the eye.
Dear Editor, Re: The church and Samoa today I think, it is the first faifeau who came with his bible and told the people of Samoa that there is a saying in the bible called FREE WILL.
Dear Editor, Re: No water, electricity for family living in shack This underprivileged and economically displaced family apparently represents a sector of the population living in conditions deprived of essential and necessary services that the government should provide at bare minimum.
Dear Editor, Re: Of God, grace and Christianity What motivation is there for anyone to do any good then? If it’s up to God, as you say, then you’re implying some kind of “judgment”, right? And if so, on what criteria will he base such judgment?
Dear Editor, Re: Deaths force govt to reconsider New Zealand has been talking about ending this programme and get New Zealanders back to work and now the PM acts like he cares about the death of two Samoans.
Re: The worst performance ever “Besides, nobody else can coach this side. Local coaches failed and McGrath also failed. His supporters now hold up the Paris leg win as if it was some kind of world cup victory. One victory in Paris in 2 years of losses isn’t all that great.”
Dear Editor, Re: Distractions, smokescreens and cost of corruption A much needed warning to all Samoans and especially the government workers. The abuse of resources from borrowed money is not going to last forever.
Dear Editor, Re: Rugby chief congratulates sacked coach Hahahaha... this is actually funny. E fiu lava e gaga le kamaimoa ae la lava e ioio mai... Come on C.E.O and P.M.
Dear Editor, Re: Leave the faifeaus alone “Once they accept Jesus Christ then the Spirit will guide them in what they must do, they’ll know what true love is, and right and wrong, because the Spirit is the best teacher, he will guide you into all truths and convicts the world of sins.”
Dear Editor, Re: The worst performance ever No. Tietjens should be kept on for 4 years to get the team to the Tokyo Olympics. If he can get the team to the Olympics and wins the gold, then none of these losses matters.
Re: Fiji issues $7 note to commemorate Olympic sevens win The government of Samoa would issue a 7 dollar Banknote to commemorate the would be 7 Coaches for their Sevens Team in the next seven years, and dreaming of an Olympic Gold Medal would be in hand in the next 7 Olympics...
Dear Editor, Re: Let’s not waste an opportunity The cost of putting on these big events like super rugby games, world boxing title defences or rugby tests are prohibitively expensive for small countries like Samoa.
Dear Editor, Re: Men plead guilty to robbery and burning Chinese store This kid Robert Kalati Smith or Lopeti Kalati as he is known in Palisi is a well-known regular police patrol vehicle passenger.
Dear Editor, Re: Resident fed up with rubbish antics Unfortunately this is an ongoing behavior that is not limited to Samoa. Whenever new laws that add financial burdens to people, the end results sometime is lawlessness.
Think about this for a minute. Without aid and hand outs from all corners of the world, where will Samoa be today? What are we to do when aid stops?
The Police Commissioner, Fuiavailili Egon Keil has finally returned to work following a long suspension and an appearance in court. Now that he’s resumed his position, Sina Filifilia Sevaaetasi hit the streets of Apia asking the question “Is there a need to have changes in the police force?”
Think a minute…A successful man said: “Success is mostly about failing.” What we don’t know about the world’s most successful people is the many times they failed before they finally succeeded.
We thank God for this beautiful day whereupon we have come to celebrate a historic moment in remembrance and prayer.
The righteous thing The Ministry of Revenue is not the most popular of government Ministries right now. That’s for sure.
The fire burnt low in the hearth but the servant women made no move to add fuel to it.
