MAGANES: Political weirdos

ORTIGOZA: Crime Busters

I broke bread recently with the two newest police bigwigs of the gargantuan province Pangasinan.

CORTEZ: Pangasinan balut industry


“I have no plunder case and I dare our friends from the media to write the truth that there is no plunder case filed against me.”

Bani Mayor Cel Navarro, iyan po ang hamon ng kaibigan niyong city maor na tumatakbo para sa mas mataas na posisyon na nakatikim ng sample ng black propaganda.
