Letters: Whale of an idea

Monday August 19, 2019

Dear editor,

I see in last Thursday's paper that visitor numbers to the Cook Islands, especially from New Zealand, are declining. Also I read that the whale research centre needs money to rebuild.

Dear editor,

The debate on chemical-free disinfection, free water and transparent consultation continues unabated.

Dear editor,

I am a food technologist from India who had the opportunity to serve the Cook Islands from 1982 to 1987.

Dear editor,

I refer to an article in Cook Island News, Wednesday August 7, 2019 headed “Causing more harm than good” a most appropriate headline for other reasons than those aired in the article.

Letters: Need rugby referees?

Wednesday August 14, 2019

Dear editor,

Kia Orana, my name is Mataa Taramai. I am 56 years old, fit and live in Wellington, New Zealand.

Dear editor,

In my interview (“Anolyte champion in last-ditch bid”, July 27) I concentrated on options for water sanitation.

Dear editor, kia orana,

My email is in response to the article titled “An island mourns” (August 10). 

Dear editor,

The Safety Data Sheet for Anolyte, from Radical Waters Ltd, South Africa, says it is an oxidising disinfectant and a weak acid. It says: “No hazards expected under normal conditions of use.”

Dear editor,

Your paper's story on trans-shipment plans at Tongareva/Penrhyn Island (“Chinese company is told, go fish,” August 10) failed to mention why such a plan was opposed.
