SY FILES: Barya lang po sa umaga!


By Susan V . Yadao

Barya lang po sa umaga! Ito ang kadalasang makikitang mga stickers na nakadikit sa mga jeepneys at tricycles. Self explanatory and understandable, wala pa silang barya dahil kalalabas lamang nila upang pumasada. Kaya kung lalabas ka na upang pumasok sa trabaho o sa eskwela at wala kang sariling sasakyan, dapat may nakahanda kang barya.

Sa mga groceries or supermarkets may nakahanda ng candies bilang panukli kung sakaling maubusan ng barya ang kahera. Hindi na rin umaangal ang mga mamimili. Nakakahiyang magreklamo kasi barya barya lang naman ang usapan. Okey naman sana pero sana naman white rabbit o juicy fruit man lang sana ang kanilang isukli kaso mga kending hindi nabebenta. Hay! Naku! mga wise na negosyante talaga!

Sa mga tricycles kung buo ang pinambayad mo, hindi ka na susuklian kasi wala daw barya, pero subukan mo silang bayaran ng eksaktong pamasaheng barya, ihahagis nila ito sa kanilang lagayan at dinig mo ang kalansing ng barya. (Hmp! Mga walang respeto sa barya!)

Perspectives : A congressional mismatch


By Mortz C. Ortigoza

Liberal party congressional aspirant Gallant Soriano faces a difficult opponent in Rep. Maria Rachel Arenas (3rd District, Pangasinan).

A much tougher newly-minted lady solon who brought an unprecedented one billion and a-half pesos worth of government projects in terms of dikes, roads, highways, school buildings, bridges, gyms, covered court, you name it in the unparallel history of the district.

Political experts laugh on Soriano’s statements that Arenas should have concentrated on health related projects.

April 5, 1580 declared as Pangasinan’s founding day


LINGAYEN – Governor Amado T. Espino, Jr. signed Provincial Ordinance No. 143-2010, declaring and citing April 5, 1580 as the official founding day of Pangasinan, during the Provincial Board’s regular session last February 15.

After almost a year of painstaking study and research, the Research and Study Committee recommended the declaration of April 5, 1580 as the official founding day of the province to commemorate two historic events in the province’s history: April 5 to celebrate the day Pangasinan became an encomienda and 1580 to mark the year it became a province.

In order to establish the day that all Pangasineses can consider as Pangasinan Day based on solid historical records, Governor Espino issued Executive Order No. 24-2009, creating the committee composed of historians, researches, members of the academe and media, representatives of different historical associations and government departments of the province, tasked to establish the chartering of Pangasinan.
