Scholarship board voting takes an unusual turn

fili@samoanews.com

With only eleven senators present at yesterday’s session, the confirmation vote for six of the seven board members for the ASG Student Financial Aid board, also called the Scholarship Board, was critical enough that during the vote, the Senate called a brief break in the middle of casting votes.
 
Each nominee needed 10 yes votes to be endorsed, therefore every ‘yes’ vote was considered critical in order for the new board to convene and carry out its responsibilities as mandated by law.
 



Police appeal for help after newborn left on steps

A newborn baby has been left on the front steps of a house at Kingston this morning, prompting a police appeal.

Police have asked for public assistance to help locate the mother of the child, discovered by the residents of the home at about 5.30am.

``The male baby is of Pacific Islander or Samoan appearance and is believed to have been born in the past few days,'' a police statement said.

``The baby appeared to be in good health and was securely wrapped up in a basket. There was also a bag containing nappies, formula and bottles.''



Hawkeye: Service with a Smile!

Good morning to all good friends and regular readers of the Samoa News, and of course; Hawkeye. It’s a fine day to complain, folks- as is any other day of the week.
 
If Hawkeye sounds like a broken record when it comes to Cable Service, and Internet service, it is because both sort of lack in Quality.
 
Week before last, Hawkeye's Cable was off from Friday afternoon to Monday morning @ 1000 Hrs. While we must be forced to pay for this down time, it is like throwing the Tupe, {money} right down the tube.
