ʻAʻole i nui ka pōʻino ma Tongatapu, koe aku ka ʻike no kekahi mau mokupuni ʻē aku o Tonga.

ʻO ia aʻela kekahi poʻo nūhou o kēia lā, ka lā 19 o Ianuali, he Pōʻakolu. Welina e nā makamaka. ʻO Ke Aolama kēia a penei ka nūhou.

Ua kūkala aʻela ke aupuni o Tonga, he ʻekolu mau kānaka i make i ka pahū ʻana o ka lua pele a me ke kai mimiki o ka Pōʻaono nei. ʻAʻole naʻe i lohe i ka hopena o nā mokupuni ʻo Haʻapai. A ke hopohopo nei nā luna o nā Lāhui Huipū no kekahi mau mokupuni liʻiliʻi ʻelua, ʻo Mango lāua ʻo Fonoi. A ua ʻōlelo ʻia, ʻaʻole makemake ʻia ke komo nui ʻana o nā limahana kōkua i Tonga i kēia manawa, ʻoiai, ʻo Tonga kekahi o nā wahi i laha ʻole ai ka maʻi kolona. Mai ka wā i hoʻomaka ai ka laha ʻana o ia maʻi ahulau, he hoʻokahi wale nō kanaka o Tonga i loaʻa i ia maʻi. Ma Peru, ua make ʻelua mau kānaka i ke kai hoʻēʻe, a ua kulu nō hoʻi ka ʻaila i loko o ke kai.

He manaʻo ko June Jones, e lilo hou i kumu aʻo no ka polokalamu pōpō pekupeku o ke Kulanui o Hawaiʻi. Ua paʻa ihola ia kūlana iā Jones i ka makahiki 1999 a he hana kupaianaha kāna. I ka hopena o kona kikina mua, he ʻeiwa lanakila o Hawaiʻi a he ʻehā hāʻule, a ʻo Hawaiʻi kekahi o nā inoa moho ʻelua o ka ʻAhahui ʻĀlapa Komohana. I ke kikina ma mua iho, ʻaʻohe wahi mea a lanakila o Hawaiʻi. Ua waiho ʻo Rich Miano i kāna noi i ke kūlana kumu aʻo, akā, i ka lohe ʻana, ʻo Jones kekahi moho e noi nei, huki ihola ʻo ia i kāna noi me ka manaʻo, e hana ʻo ia ma lalo o kāna kumu, ke lilo ʻo Jones ʻo ia ke kumu aʻo.

Eia mai kā kākou ʻōlelo noʻeau,

Ma Koʻolau e ʻōlelo ai, he lohe ma Kona.

ʻO ia hoʻi, laha koke aku kekahi mea i ʻōlelo ʻia a puni ka ʻāina
