  • American Samoa politician says girl died for lacking US$20   2 years 33 weeks ago

    Why is it that, this is the first time we heard about this non true story. LBJ will never deny treatments regardless of no money. Lbj will do treatment and deals with the payment later. I don't know why Save had to come up with this story after 1 year later. Sole this place is not for campaigning faamolemole.

  • Senate again rejects Jacinta Galeai to head DOE   2 years 33 weeks ago

    President Gaoteote lobby the senate to reject the confirmation of Jacinta Galea'i. The friction between the Governor and the President of the Senate is one main factor that contributes into this matter. This friction started since the Governor removed Dr. Claire Poumele from the director of education. Settle down people. "SAMOA MUAMUA LE ATUA"

  • American Samoa politician says girl died for lacking US$20   2 years 33 weeks ago

    You were a judge that decided to throw your frock away to enter the political arena. Does that also mean you are free to reveal what went on within the bench??
    Better yet before you accuse the hospital of negligence as a former judge that is supposed to listen to evidence, please have the professionalism to seek out the truth instead of putting out poop!!!

  • Man stoned to death in Samoa   2 years 33 weeks ago

    What is wrong with people now a days? Why is it hard to forgive and forget? Now I know why we be punished with Tsunami and Hurricane because our world needs to be reborn with people who understand the way thru God not the other way. God Speed

  • American Samoa politician says girl died for lacking US$20   2 years 33 weeks ago

    @ deathby20:Understandably you want "details"....I think you missed out on the significance of this example. More importantly in this case was to shed some light on the unacceptable behavior/culture that's been going on in our healthcare system today, while looking to provide a solution to the problem.
    You, just like the receptionist, needed the "$20"(details)....when all the patient (ppl of American Samoa) needed was a solution.

    Look @ the big picture to avoid "death" by 20!!! ;)

  • American Samoa politician says girl died for lacking US$20   2 years 33 weeks ago

    Can that receptionist at least let this poor girl see the doctor while she wait for her parent to bring the money. At least they know that she is in care and the money is on its way. If we could only have a chance to save that life but we prefer money first and it cries my heart out because she is only human. American Samoa our lives evolve around our family and God, not our jobs.
    (Editor's Note: Samoa News has not been able to confirm this story with the hospital or who the family involved was, or whether there was a death. Samoa News is still trying to find out. ra)

  • ASH Cable declares $1 million+ net losses first year   2 years 33 weeks ago

    What a joke do these people think we are all stupid.As things are now the only one's benefiting from the ASH Cable is Blue Sky Communications and whom ever else is behind the scenes on this scam. La'u Samoa Fa'amolemole Ala Mai, we are being scammed ripped off and laughed at. Tax payer's money was used without our permission and they are now paying themselves off with contractual agreements and whatever other creative way's they can come up with to show a loss on there financials. I encourage all the Gubernatorial teams to tear into this one. There has been absolutely no benefit to the people of American Samoa.

    Shine a light on them and they will scramble like the cockroaches they are.

  • House approves $3 MIL for LBJ — as a loan repaid with wage tax   2 years 33 weeks ago

    R U SERIOUS!!!! A LOAN paid back with a 2% interest?!!! I would go ahead and still implement the hike rates. This is absurd!!! You see ASPA paying back their allotted funds with interest?

    Is there any question to this day what Togiola has done to the territory?

  • American Samoa politician says girl died for lacking US$20   2 years 33 weeks ago

    WOW! Amazingly you could just pull this out from what? Have you done your research on the subject matter? Was this a necessary and news worthy article for you to print? You don't know the surrounding circumstances or truth behind this case. False testimonies by hearsay is bad, but what really worse? You got it from gossiping. Not a good quality for a candidate running for office and might paint a picture of a very different approach on what your platform would be and you as an individual running the government. Please refrain from any or all of such issues unless you can provide official documents surrounding the incident.

  • American Samoa politician says girl died for lacking US$20   2 years 33 weeks ago

    I'd say sue LBJ...but then again, LBJ aint got no monies. So sad that this is what it's come down to...$20 for a death...gosh. People who work in the hospitals, especially if you aint got no degree of any kind...all you had to do was push a pen and paperwork and get that girl treated. But, oh well...it is what it is.

  • American Samoa politician says girl died for lacking US$20   2 years 33 weeks ago

    Im so very sad to be Samoan and being raised in American Samoa and that people does not know how to care and love it's people. Why was the receptionist not admitting her at first and question that if she has money or not? This is from lack of training and awareness. If someone is complaining about chest pains, that is critical condition no matter how old are you, the receptionist should've ask for her supervisor or seek a Doctor for concern but the girl came by herself to seek medical help, HELLO is the HOSPITAL that's why people go there, but excuse me LBJ is where people die. I forgot. this is very sad so sad. I'm really mad on how our people take life for granted.

  • American Samoa politician says girl died for lacking US$20   2 years 33 weeks ago

    Our er its to look at our EMTALA law for the ER plus receptionist should report to the RN about the CHEST PAIN. They should fired that receptionist. Condolence to her family.

  • Solofa must self surrender next month in Honolulu, cannot travel outside Oahu island   2 years 33 weeks ago

    Are the employees from Upolu W/S are all thieves working in American Samoa ASG? Seems to me every time I read about stealing problems within the government are the people from Upolu W/S whom working for ASG. Can someone able to verify this so everybody's curiosity lifted!.....

  • Allegations of police misconduct surface   2 years 33 weeks ago

    I'm trying to figure out why this story has been published when it's a 'he said she said' kind of thing. If it's not a case why publish it? For the Government Official that leaked out the story, or just maybe came up with a BS'n story for media purposes, you just proved to the whole world how dumb you are. I bet you anything the Government Official was an Officer and a Dirty Cop. We have a lot of 2nd chance cops walking around acting like their the shit. We need to eliminate these DIRTY COPS who are pinning down the wrong people & doing everything in their power to pin down the GOOD COPS!!

  • Senate again rejects Jacinta Galeai to head DOE   2 years 33 weeks ago

    Hire Claire Poumele back so she can testify, and to verify the truth about were the rest of the DOE millions havehad gone to. Misallocated of funds still alive and well. And seems like no one of the administration has any remorsed about the misallocated funds spending.

    Trying very hard to concocting issues about who should be the director of the DOE. Trying to put someone with a low (IQ) so she/he cannot tell what's been happening as far as funds finagling is concerned.

    Fraudulent Concealment, and also actual frau, or fraud in fact should they be charged with. It all come under "FRuit of the Poisonous tree" and also frolic of one's own conduct by an Employee out side the "SCOPE OF EMPLOYMENT". Something needs to do in order for the light of righteousness to prevail, if ever there's a such thing.

  • DMWR & Nat’l Park briefed on sediment study   2 years 33 weeks ago

    How much dirt comes from Faga'alu? You mean run off from Leone can sediment on the reefs in Faga'alu? I don't get it. I would think ALL the dirt that settles on the reef in Faga'alu is a run off from the hills and shores of Faga'alu. Well, perhaps some from Fatumafuti and Matu'u, considering the borders running along the ridge. It sounds like a dead fish study to me. It stinks. Mose

  • American Samoa politician says girl died for lacking US$20   2 years 33 weeks ago

    From what I remember, this child (a minor) was in the care of a Tafuna High School teacher who took her to the hospital. The school and LBJ should be sued for negligence and wrongful death.

  • LBJ delivers formal notice— fees go up next week, Feb 6   2 years 33 weeks ago

    It is not anyone's fault but the governor and his admin or whoever is in charge of such delay in payments. the consequence of ones action and broken promise is going to be the island as a whole's burden and problem. Why? why? and why? every problem has a solution and i am sure that this solution is not the answer to this problem. The best thing to do Mr. Governor is to pay up and think of your people. especially the elderly and the very ill people. Job's aren't hiring, money is lacking in everyone's pockets and to have this kind of hike for hospital visits and medication will just put many six feet under. Your term is almost up Mr. Governor, so please do the right thing. Follow your motto "Fai pea mea sili." right? i don't blame the hospital although its a bit frustrating, but those nurses, doctors, and admin have families to feed as well. I pray for better days for everyone and especially for this government. Soifua ma ia manuia!!!

  • Senate President on behalf of Tulifua apologizes to Galeai   2 years 33 weeks ago

    Tulifua's mouth keeps writing checks his ass can't cover. That's what happens when you speak before you think. Does anyone really believe this one knows any of the Senate Rules, let alone be the chairman? What a joke?!!!!

  • LBJ delivers formal notice— fees go up next week, Feb 6   2 years 33 weeks ago

    LETS CLEAN HOUSE BY REPLACING THE CEO & CFO first....by the end of the year they will just cry again to the fono. I do believe they've gotten down in how to bullshit the natives.
    CEO & CFO have no excuse or reason to remain. They have FAILED and have almost successfully bullied the staff to submit to their mental abuse through threats of losing their jobs.
    Believe me the hospital will not fail without them. It would be an opportunity for the Military or feds to step in.

  • LBJ delivers formal notice— fees go up next week, Feb 6   2 years 33 weeks ago

    You would think our high paid CEO & CFO would consider a pay-decrease?
    You know you are getting your big pay to do a job YOU applied for and wanted. Your PROBATION period is over. You have FAILED us miserably. In the USA world you keep trying to fold us natives into, would have FIRED you both without any references. Why is Moananu and the board hanging on to these shammers. Why is the board and admin making excuses for these people who are doing exactly what they say Samoans are not capable???

  • LBJ delivers formal notice— fees go up next week, Feb 6   2 years 33 weeks ago

    I strongly agree with "just wondering". How can one or two persons come up with such nonsense when people are struggling? I thought a Samoan person is known for their love for each other...but no!!! we tend to pull each other down when we need to lend on each other and work together. Minus well just tell everyone to get ready for lots and lots of "fa'alavelave"!!! Or maybe...only your family members and friends are free of charge ah??? Malo lava...Fa'afetai le alofa!!!

    Using the chapel is definitely a wrong move for meetings. A man once said "Leai gi faiai...ma le le mafaufau i le fale o le Alii". Once we build a house of God, it's for God only...not for people' business. Come on people, don't you read the bible??? What happened to the church where Jesus saw and found people using the church for selling food and doing business? No wonder why you people cannot focus well on what should be done first!!! Well, so many concerns to be told but hey...let's just be ready for what is coming soon!!!

    Very sad,
    Nonsense
