District developments

Joji Toronibau, Tunuloa

While on an errand to my traditional abode last week, I find there are lots of development activities happening in and around Tunuloa areas and its peripheries.

Recently, there is solar system installed and now, we have piping and restoration of water supply plus partial maintenance in four to five villages along the Tunuloa side of Natewa Bay.

All these resources and infrastructures are unloaded at point A and ferried across the seas to point B.

We desperately need a proper government road. Our school children are the most vulnerable to elements; the senior sick citizens and the transportation of root/cash crops to and from the point of pick – ups etcetera. There is only a stretch left to link Wailevu Primary School and Napuka Secondary School where our school children can get easy access to these road infrastructures and do away with man-horse tracts, wading across the rivers and steaming across the sea to school and back. A road is always the best option in case of strong winds and unfavourable weather conditions.

We do not have TV receptions except if you buy sky links, Vodafone/Inkk and Digicel have intermittent receptions just to name a few. We, the most unfortunate tikina wish to also enjoy the same opportunities as enjoyed by most Fijians locally and abroad.

Please also note, that Police presence on wheels is most paramount to weed away illegal activities.

Public or private library?

Joan McGoon, Nadi

Imagine my surprise when I graced the premises of the Nadi library and heard the librarian advise the users that one section of the library could only be used by library members who had paid for their membership.

I even heard this librarian explicitly say that it was because it was a private library and not a “public” library.

Compare this with the public sign board in front of the Lautoka library which advises the public in writing that usage of the library for reading, study, etc does not require a fee, only for printing, laminating and photocopying services. No wonder it feels more comfortable and emotionally safer to visit this library. The librarians there are friendlier and welcoming.

Last year, we also saw the only restroom in the Nadi library containing a sign, “Only for Staff” so library users had to exit the library to find other restrooms and then return to continue their studying or reading.

Either they need a new librarian or their services needs to be revamped.

No response

Kirti Patel, Lautoka

Far too many times we read in newspapers of all the happenings.

Some positive and some negative. The worst thing is reading at the end of many article, specially in the negatives, that the response from the authorities was not obtained.

We don’t even get a response on it after few days from the right people. I believe there should be a follow up section.

Hopefully, we get to see some changes in this ongoing trend.

Lions invitation

Taitusi Sokiveta, Arizona

After the Lions tour of New Zealand is done, can they go over and play their last game south of the equator at Fiji’s ANZ Stadium against the Flying Fijians before returning to the British Isles?

Can someone notify the New Zealand Rugby Union and the touring British Lions organization on this rugby invitation.
