A FEW short interminable months ago, Covid-19 had made it almost impossible to find hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, and other cleaning products at the local grocery store or online. The shortages not only sent Americans scrambling for supplies (I actually mailed my mom some Clorox Wipes), but also elicited calls from both the right and the left for major changes to U.S. trade and economic policy.

FIRST… Kudos to the governor and his Covid-19 task force for a job well done. To say that I do not always agree with the governor would be an understatement, but a job well done is a job well done.

I HAVE enjoyed reading recent accounts of the establishment of Saipan's first newspaper.  The best factual and historical account was the letter from Floyd Takeuchi in Hawaii which mentioned the Marianas Star that I started in 1970.  Now I would like to expand his account a bit because starting a newspaper in those days was no easy task.

MY thoughts on the Coronavirus or Covid 19 pandemic? It is just starting. We have not reached its peak yet. Take a look all around you. Take a look at what is happening to the world. It is just a matter of time until the next wave occurs. And the next. And the next. Unless we find the antidote.

ON a busy Monday morning in January 1972, I was visited by a young Arab-Israeli man by the named of Abed Younis in my Micronesian Congressional Office in Chalan Kanoa. I welcomed Abed into my office and was profoundly pleased to meet such a man with a broad and happy smile and an outstretched arm in friendship. He greeted me with “Hafa Adai yan todo mauleg” in impeccable Chamorro. I offered him coffee, but he said that he was a tea man. Then he started to give me a biography of my life: college and law school education in Washington, D.C and my experience with the Trust Territory government as an assistant attorney general and now the junior senator for the Mariana Islands in the Congress of Micronesia. I asked him if he was writing a biography of me, and he immediately informed me he wanted to ask me a question on how he could permanently reside on Saipan. I looked at him and told him simply that the only option he had was to find and marry a Micronesian woman. A few months later, Abed took my advice to heart and he married a beautiful and loving young lady from Saipan who happened to be a relative of mine, Maria Paz Tudela Castro.
