“A SEX-ED CURRICULUM PARENTS WILL APPRECIATE”

Dear Editor,
 
I had the opportunity recently to review the Sex Ed curriculum being offered to the DOE called HERITAGE KEEPERS. As a parent I feel very comfortable with this curriculum. This program empowers the youth with the tools they need to make responsible pre-determined decisions so that when that time of temptation happens, they're prepared.
 



OP-ED: “IT’S NATIONAL BIKE MONTH — LET’S MAKE IT HAPPEN”

Talofa American Samoa!
 
The month of May is designated National Bike Month and this past week (May 12 -16) was “National Ride Your Bike to Work Week”.
 
Did anybody else here know that? I did not — that is, until a colleague last week told me  when he saw that I’ve begun riding my bike to work as a new routine. (Just a coincidence that it happened to be “national ride your bike to work week”). And a lot of sense it makes to me.
 



CORRECTION

The COURT BRIEFS published on May 03, 2013 under the subheading: “GRACE ALERTS — DRUG ARREST MADE” said the pipe found in Pulenatu’u Tafaoa’s possession is commonly used to smoke methamphetamine. We were incorrect — according to court filings the pipe that was found is commonly used to smoke marijuana.
 
Samoa News apologizes to its readers and the defendant in this case.
