In the midst of the happy chaos that is the Christmas season do we make room or have time for Jesus?

The best gift we can give at Christmas is the ‘good news’ that Jesus Christ was born to save and free us from the bondage of sin.

The greatest event in history

Monday December 24, 2018

“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11). The Birth of this Saviour, Christ the Lord is the Greatest event that has ever occurred in human history. The Bible teaches that all die in Adam our first forebear because of the sin of obedience he committed against his Creator God in the Garden of Eden.

TMV shines spotlight on our leaders

Friday December 21, 2018

Dear Editor,

Last Thursday's CINews headline “China contract ‘disappoints’ DPM” stated: “DPM Mark Brown says it's disappointing the Cook Islands government entered into a contract with the Chinese contractor for the Te Mato Vai” - (TMV) Stage One Project. The costs for the project were initially estimated to be $60m, but have since blown out to $90m.

Confronting the curse of ‘P’

Wednesday December 19, 2018

Dear Editor,

I want to congratulate Tamaiva Tuavera for speaking out about the dangers of the drug methamphetamine (also called “meth” or “P”).

A key priority for my fellow Pacific Leaders and negotiators attending the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP24), is accessing climate finance, across all finance mechanisms of the UNFCCC and Paris Agreement.

Dear Editor,

The letter by “Teariki Terotero”, headlined, “Is this the end of the Demo Party?” in CINews on December 6 really cracked me up.

That’s because truth be known, it really should have been headlined, “Is this the end of the CIP government?”

Dear Editor,

Sorry, but Mrs Hosking (CINews December 10). does not speak for all Maukeans.

Dear Editor,

We now hear rumours about the government having plans for a $40 million building project which apparently will be designed to have offices for all departments in one place.
