“PRIVATE SECTOR MUST BE A WILLING PARTICIPANT”

Dear Editor,
 
I am writing in response to your recent interview and articles with former Chamber of Commerce President Mr. David Robinson. 
 



“On the passing of one of American Samoa’s silent heroes”

Governor Lolo M. Moliga’s Statement:
 



OP ED: DRUGS, SEX, & MYSTERIOUS HANGINGS

If a father can sexually molest and violate his 16-year old teenage daughter while under the influence of drugs, (sn 10/05/16) imagine other known family members who are drug users under your roof or your neighbor. With all the well-publicized drug, sex related cases, in American Samoa; just how safe do you think your child or grandchild is?

OP-ED: Bluesky — The Pacific Way

Bluesky American Samoa has been a blessing to the Territory of American Samoa. It isn't just cellular phone service, but their promotion of inexpensive smartphones has made our ability to keep loved ones close in our lives with emails and online sharing

“AMERICAN SAMOA HELPS SAMOA WITH USDA CERTIFICATION PROCESS”

Dear Editor,
 
We would like to assure the public that American Samoa is deeply committed to helping Samoa achieve USDA certification. To this end, we were heartened to read a recent Savali News article that quoted Agriculture and Fisheries Minister Laaulialemalietoa Leuatea Polataivao Fosi Schmidt as hailing this a “unified effort” to solve a “complex issue.” (“MAF dealing directly with USDA on meat ban” by Nanai Lavetiga Tuiletufuga; September 19, 2016).

“JACK OF ALL TRADES, MASTER OF NONE!”

While the flash and flare of the opening ceremony for TBAS was displayed throughout American Samoa, Utu Abe Malae proves once again why he is a Political chameleon and RINO at best.
 
First, yes Utu the people of American Samoa knows what FDIC entails, yet for some reason your condescending comments shows a lack of foresight and professionalism from a Chairman of the PEOPLES bank.
 



“DOH NURSES SHOULD BE REVIEWED AS PUBLIC HEALTH NURSES”

Dear Editor, 
 
I was happy to read in last Friday’s edition of Samoa News that a task force has been appointed to review DOH nurses salaries. I believe DOH nurses, as well as many other health workforce personnel, have long been under paid. 
 
However, I would like to suggest that the task force, when performing its review, keep a few things in mind:
 



GONG SHOW! Did you read the one about…

rhonda@samoanews.com

The buzz in the community is from Facebook postings — some by people who don’t use the name they were given by their mommy or daddy, others by people willing to get out there and stand by their words, others just gossip mongers…
 
The thing is: People are beginning to think these FB postings are purveyors of "Truth” (with a capital “T”) — they’re not — they’re postings that are personal opinions, period. And everyone has one… an opinion that is… GONG!
