Think a Minute

Think a minute…It’s truly amazing how the Jewish people have survived after thousands of years of being slaves, persecuted, and even attempted genocide when Hitler’s Nazi’s murdered 6 million Jews! That’s why in 1934, Germany was the wrong place to be a Jew.

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, Who is this Afoa character? The weather man? Seems he came out of nowhere a few years ago and has had far too much to say around the place, barrowing his inflated ego, whilst pushing good people and his big mouth around, playing at the big fish in the little pond.

Dear Editor, The opening of Aggie’s and the Air Tahiti Nui M.O.U are two of of the most important developments for our tourism industry since the Poly Blue merger was announced over a decade ago.

Dear Editor, Re: Who, what and why is this? My heart goes to Tagi Fatu Nutimomoia for the loss of his loved one. Few things I just like to ask.
