Dear editor,

The Safety Data Sheet for Anolyte, from Radical Waters Ltd, South Africa, says it is an oxidising disinfectant and a weak acid. It says: “No hazards expected under normal conditions of use.”

Dear editor,

Your paper's story on trans-shipment plans at Tongareva/Penrhyn Island (“Chinese company is told, go fish,” August 10) failed to mention why such a plan was opposed.

Dear editor,

Dear editor,

I wish to write and thank the Cook Islands Tourism Marketing Corporation for intervening on our behalf, when I received a deeply shocking and unprofessional email from the owner of private rental accommodation following our stay in Matavera.

Dear editor,

Thank you for the article on the opening of the Mauke’s Community Library (“Mauke’s magical book house opens”, August 2).

Monday July 29, 2019

Kia orana editor,

Dear editor,
