Underpasses reopened – respect them

THE Honiara City Council must be commended for reopening the two underpass crossings in the city.

What achievements?

Dear Editor – Soon the ninth parliament will dissolve and the nation will go to the polls again to elect our new parliamentarians.

POB and its clients

Dear Editor – Much has been expressed in the paper about Pan Oceanic Bank (POB).

Our ocean

Dear Editor – Believing in a creation theology, the Ocean is none other than a sanctuary of our well being.

Chiefs need more power

Dear Editor – The current role carried out by the Chiefs and traditional leaders has been limited by law (legislation).

Our rights at risk

Dear Editor – It is now high time that every voting indigenous Solomon Islander rise up and use the ballot box to change direction and defend their every right to live in this land and be prosper rather than being sidelined like strangers in their own land.

Knowing one-self

Dear Editor – I could not be given in easily to temptation. That is why I am valuable.

Gao-Bugotu MP

Dear Editor – I wish to respond to the letter written by Peter Dikota (Solstar issue: 5601).

The gains would be worth it all

The countdown has truly begun. A week from now, for example, the Ninth Parliament will be no more. It will be dissolved. Nearly half the 50 Members of Parliament will have been out of job as the nation prepares to vote in new MPs to represent them in the 10th Parliament.
