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.

We invested a lot in the advertising for over a year on this competition through our Facebook page and also through CITV and CINews in the last three weeks.
Over the years we have seen so many blunders made by the ministry of culture when it comes to organising events or judging criteria and the dance competition on Thursday night just shows absolute incompetence.
Merchant of Paradise (MOP) has received its copy of the tender documents for Vaimaanga and I am able to confirm that nothing in those documents supports the rumours flying around that government has been looking to take over the Vaimaanga project.
