Sual, Pangasinan Mayor Roberto “Bing” Arcinue was hell bent on goading Bolaoen Punong Barangay Valentin dela Cruz Doquenia II  to file criminal and administrative cases against members of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) based at the provincial office of the CIDG in Lingayen, Pangasinan after they “harassed” PB Doquenia and his family.


According to the written narration given by the village chief to the mayor, at 5 am of September 19, 2018, personnel of the CIDG knocked at the door of his house and declared to search it under a warrant issued by the judge of the Regional Trial Court.

The alleged offense of Doquenia was he hid an illegal .45 caliber pistol and bullets.

When one of the operatives showed the warrant it had a different name of Valentin Clemente Doquenia instead of the name of the PB. (more…)

By Mortz C. Ortigoza

ALAMINOS CITY – A relative of a gubernatorial bet debunked rumors that the three probable candidates against incumbent Pangasinan Governor Amado I. Espino III have not yet finalized their front runner.

PRIMUS INTER PARES. Alaminos City Mayor Art Celeste (left) is the first among equals with Abono Party List Representative Conrad Estrella and former Fifth District Congressman Mark Cojuangco (above and below, right column) on the triumvirate in Pangasinan to defeat the dominion of Governor Amado I. Espino, III and his father, Fifth District Representative Amado Espino Jr. in the politics of the gargantuan province.

The probable bets are Celeste, Abono Party List Representative Conrad Estrella, and former Fifth District Congressman Mark Cojuangco.

This paper asked the relative, who asked for anonymity, when one of the reporters who attended recently the birthday party of Rep. Estrella held in Rosales town said that former Congressman Cojuangco told them that there was no official bet yet of the group for the top public executive post in Pangasinan in the next year’s election.

MAGANES: Remembering Martial Law under the Marcos administration

Last September 21, we remembered the 46th anniversary of Martial Law in the Philippines. It was not a day for celebration to some Filipinos, but a day of rejoice to those who viewed it as an era of peace and progress.

Martial law years from 1972 to 1981 had been regarded by many Filipinos as the darkest era of the Philippine government. On September 21, 1972, then President Ferdinand E. Marcos by stroke of his pen issued Proclamation No. 1081 placing the country under martial law.


To his critics, that was the day when our democracy died; that was the day when the media was gagged and that was the day when authoritarianism ruled the country.

What was the real reason why President Marcos proclaimed martial law?

In a booklet entitled “Man Who Leads a Revolution Without Arms” which was lifted from an international magazine, Archipelago, it was written “…President Ferdinand E. Marcos proclaimed martial law in the Philippines, in response to a secessionist movement and rebellion conspired in by both leftist and rightist elements. Its immediate effect was to overturn what many, particularly in the West, used to call the “showcase of American democracy in the Far East.” (more…)

Share a bear this year to children in need

By Virgilio Sar. Maganes

SM City Rosales and SM City Urdaneta Central are calling all kind-hearted individuals and mall goers to share their blessings this Christmas season through the SM Bears of Joy- an annual charity project of SM Cares, SM Supermalls, and Toy Kingdom.

For only P200, a customer can buy a pair of toy bears,  one of which goes to the customer and the other is left for donation. The customers write down their names on the card attached to the bear, to make the donation more personal and heartwarming.

They will also write their names on the donors’ wall in the mall so that the donors are publicly acknowledged.

Selling is done across selected SM establishments.

This is the 8th year of having the SM Bears of Joy, and more than 60,000 children were already shared with joy every Christmas season.

All collected toy bears will be donated to SM Prime’s chosen beneficiaries, in the communities where SM Malls are present. The beneficiaries are from public orphanages, child community centers or related non-government organizations.

Booths are located at the Mall Atrium of SM City Rosales and at the Ground Level of SM City Urdaneta Central.
