By Gabriel Cardinoza
Inquirer Northern Luzon

DAGUPAN CITY—At least eight retired and retiring military and police generals will be turning their hometowns and districts in Pangasinan into election battlefields if they push through with plans to run in the 2010 elections.

Three of them have been doing “reconnaissance” missions in the past months in three of Pangasinan’s six districts in preparation for their congressional bids.

Former Armed Forces chief of staff Hermogenes Esperon Jr., now chief of the Presidential Management Staff, has been very visible in the sixth district; former Philippine National Police chief Arturo Lomibao, now Land Transportation Office head, has been frequenting the fourth district; and Director Leopoldo Bataoil, PNP police community relations chief, has been visiting various communities in the second district.

The rest will be aiming for mayoral seats in their respective hometowns. These are Director Silverio Alarcio, integrated police operations chief in Northern Luzon, in Laoac town; former Rear Admiral Virgilio Marcelo in San Manuel; former Director Joel Goltiao in San Nicolas; former Director Ismael Rafanan in Villasis; and former Chief Superintendent Dante Ferrer in Calasiao.

Public told to be conscious of meat safety

By Venus H. Sarmiento

DAGUPAN CITY -– The National Meat Inspection Service has advised the public to be conscious whether a meat is safe to eat.

Dr. Cherry Ann Javier, Consumer Information and Assistance Division head said consumers should make sure that the meat they are buying has been inspected by the NMIS to have an assurance of its good quality.

Javier said her office has been very active in monitoring the safety of the meat being sold in the market. Trained local meat inspectors in every town are instructed to do their jobs well. They form part of the ‘Bantay Karne Task Force’ to ensure that each meat sold is of high standard. The task force also makes sure no ‘double dead meat’ enters the market, she said.
