Carnival ground

THE Farmers Carnival will be held on grounds two and three of the Churchill Park carnival ground. The rest of the carnival ground from the TappooCity development site can also be used for the annual event. This was confirmed by Lautoka special administrator Praveen Bala. The carnival is expected to be held towards the end of June.

Cruise ships

AT least three more cruise ships will bring visitors to Lautoka before January ends. According to Lautoka Chamber of Commerce administrator Mohammed Salim, the city is getting ready to host the visitors when they arrive. Mr Salim said at least four cruise ships were scheduled to arrive in February. Over the past couple of months, Lautoka has played host to thousands of international guests on cruise ships from around the world.

New V-C

THE University of Fiji will welcome a new member of its staff this week. With the departure of vice-chancellor Dr Chandra Dulare last week, a new appointee will be announced today. Dr Dulare had been at the university for a year and will be returning to Brisbane.

Police search

POLICE are still searching for 65-year-old Eliki Suka. Mr Suka is believed to have information on the fire that destroyed the Natavora Music Bar and Restaurant on the Coral Coast which led to the death of his wife Naomi Kolinisau and left his daughter Vikatoria Kolinisau hospitalised with 38 per cent burns. A $1000 reward will be given for Mr Suka's successful capture.
