HAGÅTÑA — To be completely honest, I try very hard on a daily basis to shake my cynicisms, therefore I am constantly on the lookout for good, heart warming news. Alas, there is no such thing; one is hard-pressed to find a regular dose of warm and fuzzy at the moment.

BECAUSE of clever crafty lawmakers who are connected to big corporations or shady organizations, it took me seven years to research and investigate mental health grants taken from critical patients if you don't monitor your loved ones.

THE CNMI is facing a change in eligibility and a reduction in benefits due to inaction by Congress to provide the necessary funding to maintain current income eligibility and benefit levels.  Funding for the Nutrition Assistance Program or NAP is determined only by the U.S. Congress.  The need for additional funding to support current eligibility and benefits has been on congressman Sablan’s table for several years now.  The CNMI NAP, my administration, and the USDA Food and Nutritional Service or FNS has been providing data to our Congressman’s office related to the funding needs.  The administration has requested updates on actions related to securing the funding necessary, without response.  The congressional office also received responses to letters of inquiry that it has sent, which included detailed information about NAP food assistance needs.

THAT'S her local as well as her on-line nickname.  Liang-Rose.  She liked that nickname.  Liang-Rose, my wife.  Whenever she would send me an e-mail from California, it's Lian-Rose.  Her real name was Rosalia Tenorio Sablan. And even on Facebook, she would write to me, or to her friends, about her likes and dislikes.  It was still Liang-Rose.  She would write about her views on life as she experienced it.  She would write about our kids and the “grands” and how she loved them.  They were the joy and happiness in her life.  She would write to them and would ask them “how are they doing.”  Her visiting them is like visiting “Camelot.”  It was a joy seeing them.

I HAVE a dream that in my lifetime, Guam and the CNMI will unite to become One Marianas. Our region has such a unique history. The indigenous people of the Mariana Islands were significantly impacted by colonialism and globalization, the effects of which are still prevalent in today’s Mariana Islands society.

I WANT to thank Mr. Don Farrell for writing his letter to the editor, published Sept. 11, 2020 in Marianas Variety, in which he urged CNMI voters to ignore election-year slander.

WE believe you. We are standing with you. We understand that recent news and the following reactions of the community have re-traumatized you. In the past few days, you have been questioned, judged, and silenced in ways that have been damaging to your healing and sense of self.

FOR the sake of Edwin Propst, his family and the thousands of voters who have supported him since his first election, let me cast a little historical background on election-year slander politics in the Marianas.

GOVERNOR Ralph DLG Torres and Lt. Gov. Arnold I. Palacios are focused on the people of the Marianas, and this can be seen in the islands’ preventive measures against the spread of the  Covid-19 pandemic.

AS the CNMI House of Representatives has formed a special committee to take a closer look at the Governor’s financial expenditures, I could not help but look at the ascension possibilities if he is immediately removed from office.

AS Gov. Ralph DLG Torres has placed tourism at the forefront of his agenda for economic revival, I figured I would contribute to the endeavor by means of a marketing slogan.
