Rt. 16 sinkhole
A 24-inch water line under Route 16 in Barrigada broke sometime Wednesday afternoon, prompting crews from the Naval Facilities Engineering Command Marianas and DZSP 21 LLC to close off one of the road’s southbound lane and one northbound, while they repaired the water line and the road.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

Friday, 31 Oct 2014 03:00am

We can’t just cut ourselves off from West Africa because it would make it harder to move health workers and chicken meat supply into the region.

In 1995, they started applying to live on the land our ancestors left us. Some people got land. Sadly, 8,600 Chamorro families are still waiting.For 20 years the dream of the late Sen. Paul Bordallo went unrealized. He created the Chamorro Land Trust Act. He took all the unused government land and placed it in trust for the Ch...

What strikes me the most, beyond our shared histories and cultures, is the talent we have. I believe our island – and all of Micronesia – can learn from the Philippines in how to nurture our talent, create industries around the arts and humanities, and showcase our people to the world. Too often, we look to the United Stat...
