The Best Professor Wilson Tarpeh Can Do

Dear Mr. Editor,

Dual Citizenship: Liberians Everywhere Take Pastor Kortu Brown to Task

Election Now?

Dear Mr. Editor:

I would like to have some input into the discussion regarding holding elections in the midst of the EBOLA epidemic.

EBOLA is a very serious threat to our society and deserves to be prioritized rather than following strict rules not designed to cater to such an emergency.

My Birthday Mixed with Disheartening

Mr. Editor:
One of the best treats you could give me on my birthday will be to publish my views in your widely read newspaper. Thanks for the space.

Today Friday, November 14, 2014 marks my 50th birthday anniversary, but I am observing this milestone in my life with mixed reactions.

Indeed, I am grateful to God for sparing my life to see this day, but I am also imbued with excruciating pains to see the dreadful trend in which Liberia, our mother land is taking.
