As the Suva Harbour increasingly becomes a graveyard for derelict and abandoned ships, a Papua New Guinea firm has shown how we can clean up the harbour.

Not long ago someone said it could not be done. Well, Pacific Towing (PNG) Limited has shown it can be done.

It has cut off all structures of the ruined vessel (Southern Phoenix), including its accommodation rooms.

The pieces have been lifted and sunk at the provided scuttling position of beyond 1000 metres deep outside the harbour.

We can use the same technique to clear the harbour of all the wrecks.

Parents in one school are asking why students in one class recorded a 30 per cent pass rate last year.

In another school, the teacher has allegedly been yelling at her class, raising eyebrows among fellow teachers.

Are they at the wrong level?


A political party seems to have gone quiet.

Is it part of a process when it takes a step back and assesses whether it is moving in the right direction?

BTL understands it could be a sign that things may not be well.
