  • “TIME TO STAND UP”

    Dear Editor,
     
    I have the greatest admiration and respect for the President of the Senate, but when the Samoa News reports that he has urged his Senate colleagues to disregard the voices of the people when considering the bill calling for an outrageous increase in their pay, it only reaffirms my belief that it is time for us to elect our Senators, as well as our Representatives. After all, the expectation is that they are there to act in the best interests of the public, not for their own personal gain.

  • GONG SHOW 2016 — OMG Moments

    I’ve been having so many OMG Moments lately — and they’re not from delectable sex — only wish they were, at least then I could say I was enjoying Life in Paradise!
     
    Instead …
     
    OMG — One of the justifications for pay raises for lawmakers by the lawmakers is that a raise in salary is a good thing to encourage talented leaders to run for public office.
     



    “WARNING TO VAITOGI YOUTH THIEVES: YOU STEAL, YOU PAY”

    Dear Editor,
     
    I am writing this letter as a ‘WARNING’ to the Vaitogi Village youth thieves that are going around stealing roosters, breaking into homes, and stealing bikes. You came to my house in the middle of the night, walked onto my patio, and rode off with my two daughters’ bikes that I bought them for Christmas?

  • “CORRECTION”

    Dear Samoa News,

     

    Happy New Year! About two weeks ago, I read an article in the Samoa News regarding a Hawaii Five-O episode which had a character named Makuakane, played by a Samoan with roots from Western Samoa. In that same article, it mentioned that another character was played by a Mr. Ah Quin from Laie, Hawai’i. Mr. Ah Quin was cast as a Samoan.
