EDITORIAL: Ang SP at PSU president Buted

Sa nakaraang sesyon ng Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) ng Pangasinan noong Oktubre 3, hindi sumipot si Dr. Dexter R. Buted, Pangulo ng Pangasinan State University (PSU) sa isasagawang “Question Hour” tungkol sa paglilinaw nito sa mga isyu tungkol sa “on-the-job training program” ng nasabing pamantasan at mga bagong patakaran ng Board of Regents.
Ang imbitasyon na nakapaloob sa Provincial Resolution No. 482-2016, ay para din kina Dr. Gloria F. Domantay, Vice President for Academic and Research Affairs; Dr. Adonis Bautista, Dean, School of Advanced Studies; Dr. Reynaldo T. Gelido, On-the-Job Training Teacher; Dharel Dela Cruz, On-the-Job Training student (lahat ay taga-PSU) at si Ms. Joyce Finuliar ng JIF Manpower and Referral Services.
Dahil sa hindi nila pagdalo sa nasabing “Question Hour,” nagpanukala si 4th District Board Member Agerico Jeremy “Ming” Rosario na ideklarang ‘persona non-grata itong si Dr. Buted sa pagwawalang halaga nito sa paanyaya ng SP. Winalang halaga nga ba ni Dr. Buted ang paanyaya ng SP?
Bago pa man nagkaroon ng sesyon ng SP, sumulat na noong Setyembre 30 si Dr. Buted kay Vice Governor Jose Ferdinand Z. Calimlim Jr. Sinabi niya ang dahilan kung bakit di sila makakadalo sa “Question Hour.”

MAGANES: The gains under the 100 days of Duterte’s administration

I am not a big fan of President Rodrigo “Digong” Duterte. In fact during the last election, I was a supporter of Senator Grace Poe for the presidency because I believed on her 20-point agenda and of tracing her father’s roots- King of Philippine Movies Fernando Poe Jr. here in Pangasinan particularly San Carlos City- a boost for the Pangasinenses like me.
But Poe came in third on the results of the election, trailing behind Mar Roxas. Duterte, the reluctant candidate at the start of the campaign, won by a six-million votes. To many political observers in the country, Duterte’s feat at the polls was surprising particularly because that he had no organized political machinery to back him up. He presented himself to the electorates by posturing as the “common guy” we see on the streets- brusque and unadulterated  cuss words coming forth from his mouth. He promised to get rid of illegal drugs within six months, end other forms of criminality in our society and stop corruption in all levels in the government.
These maybe the reasons why he endeared himself to the electorates who for many years have been longing for a leader who could change the systems in the country’s governance. He was the cynosure of the eyes of the common Filipinos, but a pain in the neck of the oligarchs, church leaders and the socialites. The common Filipinos mirrored in him the sincerity and honesty of a new leader.
Fifteen days before he assumed the presidency on June 30, the Philippine National Police (PNP) has already bolstered its crackdown on illegal drugs. There were raids made on suspicious drug dens and laboratories. Suspected drug users and pushers were arrested and if they are not lucky,are silenced for life. It was a show of force and a prelude to the incoming leader’s penchant to end the activities on illegal drugs.
