Letters to the Editor
Letters are one of the most important parts of the paper because this is where the community has a chance to have its say. All letters to the editor received will generally be published, provided they are not defamatory or are covering exactly the same ground by the same writer.
Non du plume are acceptable, but the name, address and contact details must be provided to the editor.
There has been much anguish in the Opposition camp since the news came out of the swearing-in of three new Cabinet Ministers by the Cook Islands Party.

In December of 1975, I and my beloved captain and partner, Mike and another couple, departed from Los Angeles in our 46-foot fiberglass ketch, and sailed through the South Pacific.
