Petty thievery

Being an ordinary citizen with a low profile does not protect you from the criminal elements here in Pangasinan or in other cities.

You will still be a target of anyone who does not have what you have.

A college student lost his calculator in his classroom while classes were going on.

Public money is like holy water in a Church… Every one dips his fingers into it

Vice Governor Jose Ferdinand Z.CalimlimJr, true to his campaigns logan of advocating Good Governance once again reiterated his call for the 100 percent implementation of projects…no tongpats.

Calimlim in his message during the turnover of project funds from Sen. Juan Miguel Zubiri to local government units said “No percentage caps are to be taken by my staff or people claiming to be my staff. We want to implement the projects 100%, no tongpats.”

For those who read the Bible, corruption is inherent in people. It even started in the Garden of Eden when the devil corrupted Eve to eat the apple of Adam. Of course, it is very easy to say that one politician is against corruption but does not practice good governance.

EDITORIAL: Always make your performance greater than your applause


President Noynoy Aquino, like Governor Amado T. Espino Jr., won their offices very convincingly.

It has been said that some audiences are easy to please and generous with their appreciation.

We ask “Is Pangasinan a better place to live in now?”

The historic number of votes given to the governor may lead his team to complacency and perform only at levels that give satisfaction to the electorate of Pangasinan.

Privatize PAGCOR, No!

We do not favor the privatization of Philippine Amusements and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR).

It is the PAGCOR’s mandate to “raise funds for the state’s socio-civic and national developmental efforts.”

Why should we give that mandate to private, profit- hungry individuals or companies?

In accordance with its Charter and other governing laws, PAGCOR earnings are distributed as follows: 5 percent of winnings goes to the BIR as franchise tax; 50 percent of the 95 percent balance goes to the National Treasury as the National Government’s mandated income share; 5 percent of the balance after the franchise tax and the National Government’s mandated income share goes to the Philippine Sports Commission for financing of the country’s sports development programs.

Simbahan vs. Casino: Agawan sa yaman ng mayaman


Bishops are against the establishment of an amusement and gaming facility in Urdaneta City .

They say that such a facility will be a danger to the morals of the people.

Gamble in any form, they say, is bad.

They blame the PAGCOR for giving out licenses to operate amusement and gaming facilities.

They blame the local government for giving permit to operate in the locality.

What are they afraid of?

May patay sa ilalim ng tulay

“May isang bangkay ang natagpuan sa ilalim ng tulay dito sa bayan ng Bugallon…” A report from a local TV station.

The best deterrent to the crime is a proactive approach to crime prevention which involves community-based organizations and private individuals working hand in hand with the PNP.

The clamor for a total gun ban is not the solution to the recent crime wave.

We observed that news reports, especially on TV and radio have been relating the suspension of the gun ban to the series of dead bodies being found under bridges.

Their logic is that when there was a gun ban, there were no killings.
