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.

Dear Editor,

Last week’s CINews letter, ‘Embarrassing to hear the Demos’ by Get Real(GR) dodges the real point of my letter, the MPs’ pay rise issue.

Dear Editor,

I would have thought filling of potholes would be completed by now seeing that this was one of many pledges made by the MP for Matavera, Vaitoti Tupa. But through your newspaper can I kindly ask that ICI’s road crew fill up the growing number of potholes on the road leading to Takitumu primary school.

Dear Editor,

The people have spoken and the majority do not support Mark Brown’s and government’s push for MPs pay rise.

Dear Editor,

I was watching the Sex in the City movie where one of the girls is so afraid of getting sick while holidaying in Mexico she won’t eat the fruit and only drinks bottled water.

Israel Falou doesn’t need any help when it comes to his battle with Rugby Australia because he assumes that God is on his side, and the good Pastor Tutai Pere agrees Israel Falou is fighting the good fight, because that is what the Bible says.

Warning: Idiots at work

Thursday May 23, 2019

I was shocked last night watching the local news and seeing an employee snuck under a car that was hoisted by a forklift so he could position a container to collect flowing liquid from the car that had just been pounded by a pick. It made me think the show should be called “Idiots At Work”.

Thanks for our health services

It is not often that I publicly write to address matters at hand, especially since most letters reflect negative or unacceptable situations. However, most outer islands have many challenges delivering health services.

I read on the front page of Monday’s newspaper, how we could be or possibly be faced with a meth or cocaine problem.

It’s not what you know

Dear Editor,

Our JPs are taking a strong stand on fraud.
