Hafa Adai, yan welcome to the mina'tres na Minagahet

Manmaolek hamyo mohon gi i nuebu na sakkan. 

We'll start off the new year not on Guam, but instead in Puerto Rico, most specifically Vieques, which has also endured a long relationship/struggle with the US military, and unfortunately it could be that now that that relationship/struggle is over, the hard part begins, repairing the damage. It will be a nice break, before next issue's big ANTI-BUSH theme. For anyone out there who has a philosophical/ political/ or personal fight to pick with our War Monger in Chief, please feel free to submit them. 

Para i tiningo'n-miyu, each issue, until November 2nd, will now feature a "cooked fanihi section."

Si Yu'us Ma'ase, ya usuni sumahuma minagahet yan na'suha dinagi
