CHANGE
OF TUNE
A renowned composer told Dickie Bird that radio stations in the country would determine the top songs of the week through the sales of the albums. That is how songs are listed accordingly in the top 10 formats.
This was what the composer called most fair to the artists.
But today it has changed. Radio announcers here rely on the listeners who text in their favourite songs.

AIRLINE
TALKS

Dickie Bird said talks are underway in the North amidst the continuing problems of Pacific Sun operating its ATR42-500s into Labasa Airport because of runway safety issues. The talks are on how to get another domestic airline to use bigger planes able to fly into Labasa airport.
Ideas are being floated around and one is to support the current operator Northern Air and the possibility of it using an 18-seater Bandeirante aircraft as soon as possible. Northern Air is currently flying its small, light Britten-Norman Islander aircraft Suva-Labasa-Suva.

BORDER
WATCH

Three men were stopped by Police at Nadi International Airport as they were about to leave the country last week.
Dickie Bird said the men, who are locals, were alleged to have been involved in a land deal scam. Stay tuned for more.

MOVE INTO
BUSINESS

Dickie Bird said one of the country’s major churches is on the verge of announcing the operation of its business arm. Dickie Bird said currently they are putting all systems in place before the appointment of a chief executive officer. The role of the company is to generate funds from the church’s properties in order to finance the church’s activities.

OLD WAYS
NEW WAY?

Dickie Bird said there is a possibility that traditional medicine or health practices could be introduced into our health centres in the near future. These include massage therapists, acupuncturists, clinical hypnotherapists, herbalist, homoeopaths and so on.
