Dear Editor,

This year's float parade sucked. It would have to be one of the worst in the history of floats in this country.

Dear Editor,

Now that the long awaited roll out of the Paradise Prosperity Plan (PPP) for the Pa Enua is happening Merchant of Paradise (MOP) is fielding strong support for the project and numerous inquiries for opportunities available, with the odd niggle about the colour of Chinese money, the loss of New Zealand citizenship if we ascend to developed status and full sovereignty with own seat at the United Nations, and security of land under unit title development.

Dear Editor,

What an exciting day – gather the children and families and let’s celebrate the opening of the 53rd Te Maeva Nui by viewing the float parade….

Dear Editor,

Regarding the story headlined “Joint venture aids animal welfare,” published in CINews on July 10,  the Esther Honey Foundation applauds and wholeheartedly supports the recent efforts to build upon EHF’s two-decade legacy of sharing animal health and humane education with a generation of Cook Islanders throughout the country.

Dear Sir,

I recently visited the Muri night market, among the many food stalls was a stall run by a local school as a fundraising venture.

Dear Editor,

The artist’s concept of the “improved” main road in Muri that was on the front page recently is real pretty.
