Letters to the Editor
Letters are one of the most important parts of the paper because this is where the community has a chance to have its say. All letters to the editor received will generally be published, provided they are not defamatory or are covering exactly the same ground by the same writer.
Non du plume are acceptable, but the name, address and contact details must be provided to the editor.
As a recipient from Aitutaki of the Marine Resources fishing grant this year, I am very disappointed with how they have approved my fishing grant.
I read with interest the article on the front page of CINews, which was a “talk up” of pa enua visitors by old acquaintance Ewan Smith of Air Raro, with Roger Malcolm of Atiu and Halatoa Fua of Cook Islands Tourism contributing. The article was headed “Pa Enua visits on the up and up” and quoted Ewan as saying, “Maybe the cost of airfares is not such a factor”.
Aue taue, those slimy Demos are up to it again…trying to slither their way into the minds and hearts of some of the Cook Islands Party MPs by offering them like the serpent of old, a bite of the apple if they will just betray their people and come to the dark side.
There seems to be some confusion regarding the front page story in CINews on September 4 headed “First step for planned resort”.
I see the unhappy Demo supporters are already on the attack, accusing our Cook Islands Party leader of being a “slippery eel”.
