I saw on Facebook over the weekend how a drunk driver
crashed into a power pole just off the Avatiu Harbour driveway. I was informed
that one of the fishing charters staff was behind the wheel and caught up in
the drunk driving accident.
It’s about time those drunk fishermen from the Avatiu
harbour hit a power pole. Wake up call! I am not being mean but the Ports
Authority harbour master is a contributor to these fishermen drinking at the
harbour site because he allowed these trends to happen.
Seriously, it’s the same guys from these charter boats,
using the area as drinking spot and bringing their other mates along. This
accident was bound to happen anyway. Luckily the driver of the white truck just
missed the power box, imagine what would have happened.
Hope you learned your lesson mate.
To the Ports Authority, ban drinking at the Avatiu harbour.
Wake up harbour master.

Harbour master John Jessie’s reply – Please inform nom de plume to come to my office to discuss further on this issue.
Are Pa Metua still waiting for new home
It is disgraceful that no action has been taken on the
promise by PM (Mark) Brown of providing a suitably renovated centre in Panama
for Are Pa Metua. This should have been enacted on immediately after the
meeting in February. Surely funding can be fast tracked to get this project
completed so our elderly have a place to meet.
For a country that (supposedly) has such respect for their
ancestors I find it shocking that these old people are ignored by their
The PM has a lovely, new and extraordinarily expensive new office and these old people have to meet in their wonderful coordinator’s home.
