THE fact that the Fiji Police Force is now investigating an incident where one of its vehicles overturned in Nabua, Suva on Wednesday is cause for concern.
Year after year, the number of schools participating in the Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics Finals keeps on increasing. Preparation works done by students, schools, parents and former scholars is tremendous. Money generated or spent in the games is also huge, whether you are a food or drinks seller, gate-takings receiver, team sponsor or just a supporter.
My pick for the last legs of the World Series in Paris and London sevens.
YOUR correspondent Nishant Singh (FT 13/4) is right on both counts.
Recently I have seen a lot of pedestrians crossing our roads from anywhere they like. Most of them also wear earphones while walking along the roads.
So now everyone in Government and opposition are jumping and blaming each other.
IF the dialysis cost in India is only $US12 ($F24.91) why is it $150 in Labasa and $250 in Suva?
Every time I visit my family at Ura Pl, Valelevu, the piles of rubbish on the road in front of our house will be the first thing to greet me and is growing bigger and smellier.
Well the dust has probably settled already at Laucala Bay and the students are enjoying their two weeks holidays.
It's pretty easy to organise a trip to the Northern Division or to Levuka these days, by sea that is.
When the dust settled at the national stadium, Natabua and ACS stood tall, smiling all the way to their destinations. Competition was tough and the medal tally in the boy's competition spoke about the calibre of this year's athletics meet. All went well and the festive atmosphere gave rise to the success of this year's Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics finals. I must at the outset commend the organisers and officials for going out of their way to ensure that the meet concluded with a lot of hype and excitement. Though Natabua and ACS won, I salute the performance by all the athletes, especially those who toured Suva from the outer islands and rural areas. Despite lack of training facilities and funding they gave sublime performances.
I guess all team officials would love to reward their athletes after every achievement in sports.
Can relevant authorities enlighten the general public how some of the previously owned residential blocks in the Suva-Nausori corridor were converted into commercial blocks?
I am still trying to get my head around the fact
Congratulations Westpac for celebrating 200 years of business. What an achievement from 1817 to 2017 ( FT 8/4/17 ) I can still recall during my primary school days it was then Bank of New South Wales. They usually give us a bank card which had 10 six pence stamp size squares printed on it. During our banking period, we deposited six pence and the stamp was pasted on the column provided.
It appears to me that because of his popularity, the charismatic politician Pio Tikoduadua is drawing a lot of media attention recently. Now after two years of treatment and all the medications, he has regained his health and decided to enter the political arena again. It is entirely up to him to decide and pick the party of his choice.
IF I was a member of the opposition party:
TWO more houses in Suva and Nausori were destroyed by fire yesterday. As our report on Page 7 today reveals, in the first incident, at Bau Rd, Nausori, a three-flat wooden house was destroyed leaving two families homeless.
To watch the 2017 Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics Finals was as mesmerising as the Olympics, Rio 7s rugby in 2016.
Rest in peace
THE new head of FSC said on TV 1 that FSC hasn't got the ability to cogenerate.
They say fizzy drinks do not go well with athletes, or healthy living for that matter. But who cares when it comes to sponsorship bucks?
I HONESTLY believe that Pio Tikoduadua is being unfairly subjected to persecution for his decision to join the National Federation Party.
Is there a mole in SODELPA?
IT rained quite heavily in the Capital City last night.
