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.

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.

IN 1976, the NMI was still one of the six districts of the Trust Territory government which was administered by the U.S. But the Northern Marianas’ Covenant with the U.S. had already been enacted into law by the federal government, and the NMI’s transition to Commonwealth status was already in motion.

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.

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.

HAGÅTÑA—I have found that around here, and probably everywhere else, people divide into two very distinct groups this time of the year: those who mourn the passing of summer, and those who dance as it bids adieu. I, myself, have never shed a single tear during these days.

HAGÅTÑA — There is overwhelming evidence from over 30 years of research that students whose parents are actively involved in their learning perform better academically. Furthermore, they have better attendance rates, more positive attitudes toward school and fewer discipline problems, higher graduation rates and greater enrollment in college, and become more responsible adults.
