Finding the Will of God

I invite you to our discussion this week as we look at the topic, “Finding the Will of God.” It is my prayer that somehow this will be a help to you to find God’s divine purpose for your life. I believe that we are not in this world by accident but by God’s divine…

Why arrest Aipia?

Dear Editor – I’ve read many articles about Dr Reginald Aipia’s beche-de-mer saga. But the report on his recent arrest for farming Bechdemer on his remote Lord Howe Island seems to be on a jealousy basis. The beche-de-mer on Lord Howe Islands belongs to the indigenous people there and not belong to the Director or…

Re: Where’s our sovereignty?

More than a month ago on 14/08/2017 your paper carried an exceptional article by Mr. William Gua under the above title which reminds me of a political ‘monsoon’ that bore similar sentiment more than three (3) decades ago on the eve of Independence and as such, I wish to tread into the ‘No Go’ zone…

Why Aipia?

Dear Editor – The letter authored by Tepuke P. Hakatigisa’a from White River which came out last Friday in this column is interesting. That letter mention how a ‘Patrol Boat’ was dispatched to arrest Dr Aipia along with his American friend who were busy with the bechedemer farm in the Malaita Outer Island. Yet, the…

Seafaring nations, coastal states and the shipping industry staged conferences, seminars and public events under the 2017 theme “Connecting Ships, Ports and People”. At…

Attitudes (2)

Thought for the Week By Rev. Eric D. Maefonea (SWIM)  I again invite you to our continuing discussion on the topic “Attitudes.” One of the biggest challenges facing us today is attitude. If we want to see change happening, then we must first have a change of attitude as individual Solomon Islanders. Many think that…

Promotion in RSIPF

ALLOW me to express views in relation to the above topic published in Island Sun issue no: 2689 which the author also refers to earlier publications in this paper (no: 2671) and Solomon star issue no: 6668 respectively. On the outset, I think promotion in the RSIPF as in any organisation is done on the…

Reply to APID Media Desk

PLEASE publish this article as my respond to APID Media Desk article: ‘APID reply to Sanders’, which appeared in your letters to the editor‘s column of Saturday 2 September, 2017. I am not going to dwell on all that APID Media Desk said negatively about Sanders Tuhamano because like Tuhamano whom they accused; APID stories…

No police presence

Dear Editor – I lived here between the peripheries of the capital of Solomon Islands in one of those areas labelled as back squatters (not to be named for the purpose of fairness), despite the fact we have access to all basic services in the country. The only major problem our small community of good…

HCC impasse

Dear Editor – I recommend the Minister of Home affairs & Deputy PM Mannaseh Maelanga for being considerate and the lengthy impasse which rocked the Honiara City Council. In the past HCC was subjected to prompt dissolutions, a precedence Mr Maelanga would not want to pursue out rather prefers to sort things out amicably. He’s…
