Liquor ban
Morobe and East Sepik provinces have imposed liquor bans until Grand Chief Sir Michael Somare is laid to rest on Saturday in Wewak next week. True respect.
Good read
A correspondent suggests that Sir Michael Somare’s autobiography Sana is a good read for those, including students, who want to know more about the Father of the Nation. It’s K45 at the UPNG library.
Bad sign
Broncos fan is already worried about the new season after losing the trial match to the Cowboys last weekend.
Poor pal
We all have that one friend whose wallet looks like this but still says “I’m poor”.
Another cyclone
Gusts of wind and heavy rain in Port Moresby on Monday night caught many by surprise. We found out yesterday that Cyclone Niran was developing off the coast of North Queensland and would be affecting the southern coasts of PNG.
Food for thought
Great leaders do not set out to be a leader. They set out to make a difference. It’s never about the role, but about the goal.
