Anda’s cultured bangus float dead

DAGUPAN CITY – At least five tons of bangus (milkfish) turned belly up in three villages of Anda, but the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources refused to call the incident as fish kill.

Ilocos Regional Director Nestor Domenden said “what is considered as fish kill is when at least 10 percent of the stocked fish dies, but the five tons represents only 0.03 percent of the 16,000 available bangus cultured in the area.”

He explained that tons of bangus however, are being forced harvested by operators as their fish structures could also be hit by whatever is causing the bangus to die for the last five days already. (more…)

Mayor Romero dies of heart attack

MANGALDAN – This town’s Mayor Herminio Romero died from heart attack at around 9:30 pm of Sunday. He was 72.

Romero was speaking during a Christmas party in San Fabian when he collapsed and was rushed to the Decena Hospital in Bonuan, Dagupan City, where he was pronounced already dead by doctors.

A close associate said the attack could have been triggered by fatigue because he had been conducting caucuses and attending holiday activities.

CORTEZ: Gov Espino suportado ni Cong Mark hanggang kulungan

SENATORIAL CANDIDATES VOTE ON THE RH BILL. Hay Naku Bok, ang akala ko ay ang SSS ay isang ahensya ng gobyerno. Hindi na pala. Ang SSS ngayon ay Safe and Satisfying Sex. Hahaha.

Bakit ng ba ayaw ng ibang senador na ilagay ang safe and satisfying sex sa batas?

Ano ba ang gusto nila Bok, unsafe and unsatisfying sex?

Sabi nga ni Sen Miriam,I am a Filipina. I’m also a married woman. And I insist whoever is married to me to give safe and satisfying sex, period! Parang ganoon ata ang narining ko. Hahaha.

Para doon sa mga nagtatanong kung ano ang mga naging boto ng mga tumatakbo para senador sa 2013, eto po ang resulta sa botohan nila sa RH Bill.

Ang mga nag-YES ay sina Senator Alan Peter Cayetano, Senator Francis Escudero, Senator Loren Legarda,
Aurora Rep Juan Edgarda “Sonny” Angara, Cagayan Rep Juan “Jack” Ponce Enrile Jr, at Bayan Muna Rep Teodoro Casiño.

Ang mga nag-NO ay sina Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel Jr, Senator Gregorio Honasan, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, San Juan Rep JV Ejercito, at Zambales Rep Milagros “Mitos” Magsaysay.

CONG MARK FOR ESPINO. Kahit na makulong si Gov Spine, suportado pa rin siya ni Cong Mark Cojuangco. Paano ko po nasabi ito? Eto po ang quote mula sa lumabas sa Inquirer.

As for the NPC, former Rep. Mark Cojuangco of Pangasinan said the party would stand by Espino even if Roxas persisted in putting him in jail.

“Our alliance is with P-Noy (President Aquino). That alliance manifests itself as an alliance with the LP in the House of Representatives. Local politics are another matter,” said Cojuangco, son of NPC founder Eduardo “Danding” Cojuangco Jr.

“We await the evidence which will be presented by the DILG and see if it will prosper beyond the current hearsay. Without solid evidence, we will maintain our support and campaign for our candidate even if he is thrown in jail. As you know, you can be put in jail even if you have not yet been convicted,” Cojuangco said.

THE PLUNDER LAW. RA 7080 pala ito, Atty Jazon Collado, ang plunder pala ay puedeng isampa sa iyo bilang government employee kahit na hindi government funds ang involved. (more…)
