ROSALES- About 10,000 kilograms of frozen and processed meat were again blocked entry at the Carmen East Quarantine Office here last November 7.

The processed meat composed of bacon, siomai, hotdog and ham came from Bulacan and were barred from entering the province because of the total ban on live hogs, pork either frozen or processed as contained in the executive order issued by Governor Amado “Pogi” Espino III.

The said checkpoint is being manned by the composite team of the Department of Agriculture (DA), Samahang Industriya ng Agrikultura (Sinag), Abono Partylist, Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Office of the Provincial Veterinarian (OPVet). (more…)

EDITORIAL: Matutuldukan na kaya ang digmaan sa droga?

Kamakailan lang, itinalaga ni Pangulon Duterte si Bise Pangulong Leni Robredo na maging co-chairman ng Inter-Agency Committee on Anti- Ilegal Drugs (ICAD) upang malaman ng huli kung anong mga dapat tingnan sa operasyon nito. Noong una, balintulot ang kampo ni Robredo na tanggapin ang nasabing posisyon na ayon sa kanila ay isang patibong ito kay Robredo.

 Subalit tinanggap ni Robredo ang hamon ng Pangulo. Aniya, sa kanyang pagtanggap sa posisyon, gusto niyang may maisalba lamang siya na isang inosenteng biktima ay maligaya na siya.Sa kanyang tinuran, hindi maliwanag kung ano  at sino ang mga inosenteng biktima na kanyang tinutukoy. Ito ba yong mga taong gumagamit ng droga na inosenteng biktima ng mga drug lords, drug dealers at drug pushers? O ito ba yong mga namamatay bilang “collateral damage” sa laban kontra ilegal na droga dahil sa mga isinagawang police operations?

 Bakit itinalaga ni Pangulong Duterte si Robredo sa isang sensitibong posisyon? Ating matatandaan na si Robreo sampu ng kanyang mga kaalyado sa Liberal Party ay mga pangunahing kritiko ng Pangulo lalong lalo na sa digmaan ng ilegal na droga. Umabot pa nga si Robredo sa United Nations na kung saan nagbigay siya ng estadistika ng nga di-umano’y “extra-judicial killings” sa bansa. Pinulaan niya ang Operation Tokhang at OPlan Double Barrel na aniya ay walang katuturan ito sa pagsugpo sa ilegal na droga. (more…)

MAGANES: Moving on from trauma

As I am writing this, I can’t help but recall the November 8, 2016 incident that almost cost me my life. The events were vividly etched in my mind that thinking about it brings shivers down my spine. Thank God that I still enjoy the breath of life and savor the beauty of nature and the relationship with few real and good friends, and with my family.


 On that day, I rode in a tricycle going to Villasis downtown to get another ride going to Dagupan City for my radio program over DWPR Radyo Asenso. It was still dark at 5:00 o’clock in the morning. The weather was cold and damp. The crows of roosters as well the barks of dogs could be heard from afar. I did not sense any danger on that morning. It was my usual daily routine. The tricycle that I used to ride on everyday was owned by a neighbor whose house was just a stone’s throw away from our house.
