Couples costumes for Halloween

Wednesday, 22 Oct 2014 03:00am

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...
