MALOLOS CITY—Bulacan successfully staged the giant custardfilled bread called “inipit” yesterday
in front of the provincial capitol building here, aimed at further pump
priming local bakery industry.
This is the second giant bakery
product staged by the provincial
government in a week’s time. On
Wednesday, a giant “ensaymada”
measuring 40 feet in diameter was
presented as part of the eight-day
Singkaban Fiesta celebrations.
Weighing 1,500 kilos, the giant
“inipit” measured 15 feet wide, 30

Arrest warrant issued vs. CIDG man
BY JOEY PAVIA
CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – The Regional Trial
Court (RTC) Branch 41 issued a warrant of arrest
against the suspect in the
brutal killing of three persons at a bar near the Pampanga Police Office here
last August 22.
Integrated Bar of the
Philippines (IBP) Pampanga Chapter President Atty.
Aramis Benoza disclosed
that Branch 41 Judge Divina Luz Simbulan had issued on September 11 a
warrant of arrest against
Benedicto Pasiguen of this
city, a non-uniformed personnel of the Criminal Investigation and Detection
Group (CIDG).
The IBP offered free legal services to the family
of the victims identified as
Melanio Salonga, 49 and
his son Jefferson, 24, and
Mark John Manalese, 20.
Benoza said the multiple murder case was originally raffled off to RTC
branch 43. But the presiding judge inhibited himself
because the brother of the
complainant works at the
said branch.
It could be recalled that
Pasiguen shot the three
victims at the Fraulein Grill
Bar after they figured in an
argument with the suspect’s friend, Alex Briones.
Atty. Paul Maglalang,
IBP-Pampanga secretary,
earlier asked the regional
police authorities to impose
sanctions on members of
Pampanga police for “inaction.” He added that the grill
bar is located “within spitting distance” from the provincial office where
Pasiguen reportedly ran to
without being arrested.

Miriam inaugurates
Tarlac school building
TARLAC CITY—Feisty
Senator Miriam DefensorSantiago inaugurated the
newly constructed twostorey, eight classroom
school building she donated to the Tarlac National
High School [TNHS] at the
Urquico Memorial Field
here last week.
The P11-million worth
school building came from
the Priority Development
Assistance Fund [PDAF]
of the lady senator who
said in her speech that she
is just happy to use her
allotted funds for the betterment of the educational system in the country.
After the inauguration
and turn-over of the school
building, a program at the
TNHS covered court was
held with Santiago as
guest speaker.
“I have only one message today not only to our
voters in the audience but
to the entire populace of
our country. Like you students, your idealism will
see you through life as it
unfolds before you. This is
life in a developing country,” she said.
She further stated that
the country is rich in natural resources but the Philippines is still poor because most government
officials are corrupt.
“Ladies and gentlemen, the future of the Philippines lies in your hands,
we should not look into
other countries. We
should look into our hearts
for the answer to our problems,” Santiago pointedout.
The lady senator like-
wise urged voters to “vote
only for young and idealist candidates like Governor Victor Yap” which elicited great applause and
cheers from the jampacked crowd.
“The idealism of young
politicians is needed that
is why I charge Gov. Vic
to be your role model,” she
said.
Yap for his part said
that the foundation day of
the oldest public high
school in the country is an
important day because of
the presence of Santiago
who had given much assistance to the province.
“A very brilliant statesperson has given her time
to be with us today…I
would also like the people
to know that there are a
lot of projects that our
guest of honor, Senator
Miriam Defensor-Santiago
has given to the province
apart from the school
building we just inaugurated,” he said.
The governor further
said that Santiago is a
charismatic Philippine
icon idolized by all the
people throughout the
country for having such an
intellectual brilliance and
the undisputed campus
heroine.
Department of Education Undersecretary Ramon Bacani likewise attended the affair together
with provincial and local
officials, members from the
academe, the Philippine
National Police and the
faculties and students of
TNHS.

P3.7M-fund readied for relief operations
BY ERNIE B. ESCONDE
HERMOSA, Bataan- The provincial government and two
municipalities have set aside
P3.7 million from their calamity funds for distribution of relief goods to 20,000 families or
more than 100,000 persons affected by flash floods in Dinalupihan and Hermosa towns in
Bataan badly hit by the recent
flash floods.
Gov. Enrique Garcia approved the release of P2 million
while Mayor Efren Cruz Jr. of
Hermosa and Mayor Joel
Payumo of Dinalupihan upon
recommendation of their respective town councils readied P0.6M
and P1.1M, respectively.
Distribution of packs of rice
and assorted canned goods,
coffee and sugar started
Wednesday and continued until
Friday. The GMA Kapuso Foundation handed 1,200 packs consisting of rice and canned goods
to affected families in Dinalupihan Wednesday.
Volunteers were busy repacking rice, canned goods and
other items in Hermosa and Dinalupihan while big dump trucks
from the Bataan capitol assisted by Army reservists delivered
relief goods to long lines of
barangay folk. “Maraming salamat,” an old woman holding her
ration said smiling.
In Hermosa, five of 21 barangays affected by flash floods
were still under water Thursday.
At the height of the floods, most
of the barangays were submerged in water, the deepest
with more than eight feet.
“As of Thursday, flood waters are five feet deep in barangays Pulo and Almacen,” Cruz

said, adding that this was the
worst flood they experienced
“because of the heavy rains.”
Other villages still affected by
high flood waters are A. Rivera
and Daungan. Motorized bancas
were used to reach Almacen and
Pulo.
Dinalupihan municipal administrator Fer Manalili said of
the 26 barangays affected by
flash floods, six remained flooded the most with three feet deep
water. These barangays are Layac, Daan-Bago, Sta. Isabel, A.
Mabini Extension, Luakan and
San Ramon.
Governor Garcia said he has
written and appealed to Pres.
Gloria Macapagal Arroyo to fund
the flood control program supposed to be implemented at a
portion of the Subic-Clark-Tarlac
Expressway to lessen flooding
in Dinalupihan and Hermosa.
Lands planted to rice near the
SCTEx were submerged in deep
water that looked like a vast sea
during the height of the floods.
On Thursday, some portions of
the denuded ricelands were partly dried but the plants seemed
wilting.
The governor also spelled his
continuous no let-up campaign
against illegal logging and the
program on massive reforestation of the bald forests n the province through aerial seeding of 20
million seeds of various variety
of trees.
“One of the major causes of
flooding is our denuded forests
and we have to do something,”
Garcia said.
Village chief-teacher eyes council seat
BY JOEY PAVIA
ANGELES CITY – “I will work for legislations allowing
more funds for an expanded college scholarship program.”
Thus said Salapungan Barangay Chief Robert Yeen
as he announced his plan to run for councilor in the 2010
elections.
A long-time history teacher at the Holy Angeles University (HAU), Yeen said he had supported free quality
education since becoming a Kabataang Barangay chairman in 1985.
He had allotted a portion of his barangay’s Internal
Revenue Allotment (IRA) share to fund his scholarship
projects.
“I have been helping poor but deserving students since
my first term as village chief. That was the time that running for councilor had not crossed my mind yet,” said the
two-term barangay chief, who recently finished his masteral degree in public administration at HAU.
“I simply believe that education is the only permanent
solution against poverty and other forms of chaos in society,” added Yeen, who joined other Liberal Party (LP)
members when Sen. Noynoy Aquino proclaimed his intention to run for president last week.
Yeen said that the “next city government should provide modern hospital equipment such as dialysis machines in public hospitals.” He added that he will work for
job generation and low-cost housing for the people once
elected councilor.
A political science and law graduate, Yeen will join
the team of mayoralty aspirant Balibago Barangay Captain Rodelio “Tony” Mamac.
Yeen and Mamac vowed to support the candidacy of
re-electionist First District Rep. Carmelo “Tarzan” Lazatin.

IGNORANCE THAT we, being good Christians, should readily forgive.
That was one Born-Again fellow who had the misfortune of sharing
my table at Starbucks, SM City Pampanga this weekend. It was a
retort to my ribbing him of Senator Lito Lapid’s statement, translated
to English now: “They say that the Capitol has so much money
now, but where are their projects that should be benefitting the
people? The people are in misery and not even a single sack of
rice has come their way out of the Capitol.”
The B-A guy, of course, is an ardent supporter of Gov. Eddie T.
Panlilio. And, true to his calling, he would not just let pass anything
negative said of his governor.
Even as we forgive Lapid, as Christians too, we are duty-bound
to take him out of his ignorance. So let me tell you this, with the
hope of passing it on to Lapid and to his advisers for their
enlightenment.
I will write it in my column, I told him. And this is it.
Yes, we have the money at the Capitol, thanks
to the moral integrity and uprightness of Among
Ed – all P413 million in quarry collections the
past two years. For the first semester of this year
alone, a total of P143,919,500 has been collected.
From these sums, the rightful shares of both
barangays and municipalities in the quarry areas
have been religiously distributed.
So how much did Lapid and his son bring into
the Capitol coffers in their 12 years of misrule in
Pampanga?P155,626,000, which Among Ed
could easily collect in seven months!
Wow, all those statistics at your fingertips?
As good Christian soldiers, we are ever ready
with our arms for battle.
Yeah, I can almost hear the boom, the
marching cadence —
Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to
war,
With the cross of Jesus going on before.
Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
Forward into battle see His banners go!
Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to
war,
With the cross of Jesus going on before.
At the sign of triumph Satan’s host doth flee;
On then, Christian soldiers, on to victory!
Victory over ignorance – not only of Lapid but
of a number of the Kapampangans – is indeed
the noble cause of Among Ed. The Kapampangan
is in dire need of enlightenment. As you yourself
said over both Infomax 8 and CLTV-36 not too
long ago: E mu tatasan ing kamulalan da ring
Kapampangan (Do not underestimate the
gullibility of the Kapampangan).
Yeah, I said that in the context of Lapid getting
elected governor three times by landslides of votes
despite his own admission of being unschooled,
in spite of the cases of graft and corruption filed
against him and his suspension from office by
the Ombudsman, plus the perceived wealth of his
family even as the quarry income of the province
suffered.
So, who are we now talking about? It’s Lapid,
stupid!
Ouch! Ain’t we as good Christians supposed
to refrain from uttering words that could hurt our
brothers’ feelings?
No harm meant there, brother, just emphasizing
a point a la Bill Clinton: “It’s the economy, stupid.”
Remember? Anyway, Lapid asked about the
projects of Among Ed? So I will indulge him:
In infrastructure development, the Capitol has
invested P232 million for the construction and
repair of roads, canals, government facilities,
public schools, hospitals and covered courts.
In social development, Among Ed has
allocated P31.5 million for health programs, P26.5
million for supplemental feeding and P92.7 million
for the marginalized sectors, including the senior
citizens and persons with disabilities. Another P22
million was spent for the Philhealth cards of over
10,700 indigent Kapampangans.
In the field of education, P3 million worth of
assistance has been given to summer student
workers and funded 7,940 government scholars.
The agriculture and aquaculture sectors got
P41.9 million. While entrepreneurs were extended
P6.15 million in micro-financing and livelihood
loans.
There are the projects. You can assume from
there the number of Kapampangans benefited.
And alll these in just over two years of Among
Ed’s administration. Now, for their 12 years at
the Capitol, what have the Lapids to show the
Kapampangan other than the Palaces in Porac
and their fleet of sports utility and luxury vehicles?
That is not for me to answer. Ask Bernie Cruz,
Lapid’s self-proclaimed spokesman. Ay, you won’t
get anything there. I remember him being quoted
in the media as saying the Lapid camp would not
answer accusations of wrongdoing by the returning
governor. Better ask Deng Pangilinan. He is more
open, if not more rational. Meanwhile —
Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to
war,
With the cross of Jesus going on before.
Hell’s foundations quiver at the shout of praise;
Brothers, lift your voices, loud your anthems
raise…

ON THIS DAY in 1959 a Soviet
rocket crashes into the moon's
surface, becoming the first manmade object sent from earth to
reach the lunar surface. The
event gave the Soviets a shortlived advantage in the "space
race" and prompted even greater effort by the United States to
develop its own space program.
In 1957, the Soviets shocked
the United States by becoming
the first nation to launch a satellite into orbit around the earth.
Sputnik, as it was called, frightened many Americans, who believed that the Soviets would
soon develop an entire new
class of weapons that could be
fired from space. U.S. officials
were especially concerned, for
the success of Sputnik was a
direct rebuke to American claims
of technological and scientific
superiority over the communist
regime in Russia. It was a tremendous propaganda victory for
the Soviets, and gave them an
edge in attracting less-developed
nations into the Soviet orbit with
promises of technological aid
and assistance.
The United States responded by accelerating its own space
program, and just months after
Sputnik, an American satellite
went into orbit. In September
1959, the Soviets upped the ante
considerably with the announcement that a rocket carrying the
flag of the Soviet Union had
crashed onto the moon's surface.
In Washington, a muted congratulation was sent to the Soviet
scientists who managed the feat.
At the same time, however, the
United States warned the Soviet
Union that sending the Russian
flag to the moon gave the Soviets no territorial rights over the
celestial body. Vice President
Richard Nixon expressed some
sour grapes by noting that it took
the Soviet four tries to hit the
moon and reassured Americans
that "We are way ahead" in the
space race.
Nixon's reassurances aside,
the Soviet success in sending a
rocket to the moon provoked
even greater effort by the United
States to gain an advantage in
the space race. In 1960, presidential candidate John F.
Kennedy made it one of his
campaign themes. After winning
the election, President Kennedy
increased spending for the
space program and vowed that
America would send a man to
the moon by the end of the decade. In 1969, American astronaut Neil Armstrong became the
first man to walk on the moon.

MUCH HAS BEEN written on Senator Mar Roxas’ sacrifice at Club
Filipino and the following events that ended with Senator Benigno
“Noynoy” Aquino III’s formal declaration of his presidential bid on
Wednesay, September 9.
But not much was written on how people close to Mar felt when
he announced that he is giving way to Noynoy on September 1.
One of those present at Mar’s announcement was Susan “Toots”
Ople, youngest daughter of the late Bulakenyo statesman Blas F.
Ople who worked with Mar as communication consultant for three
years.
While working as her father’s Chief Of Staff in the Senate, and
later at the Department of Foreign Affairs, Toots is my publisher in
the now defunct “Malolos Times” from 2000 to 2004. This relationship
allowed me to be in touch with her until now. Thus, when I read her
post on Facebook, I immediately asked her if could reprint it and
she replied in the affirmative.
Below is Toots’ sincere and heartfelt blow-by-blow account on
Mar’s sacrifice entitled “Mar was wrong.”
I knew it was coming but was stunned just
the same when I heard it.
Claiming my space in the crowded Gabaldon
room of Club Filipino, I saw him enter the room,
my former boss, Mar Roxas in blue, smiling and
with a sparkle in his eyes. If he was in pain, he
didn’t show it.
Butch Abad, campaign manager of Noynoy
Aquino in 2007 and of Mar for 2010, opened the
press conference. Liberal Party chairman
emeritus Sen. Jovito Salonga was seated with
Mar at the presidential table. The heat was rising
as warm bodies jostled to get the best shot, or
have the main speakers directly in their line of
vision. Suspense was palpable.
Mar stood up and read a prepared statement.
Short and sweet. Country above self, he said.
Noynoy wanted to carry the torch. Even before
his speech was over, the new LP presidential bet
came in and joined the main figures at the
presidential table. No Q & A. In a matter of
minutes, the torch was passed, and Mar of those
silly padyak ads became Mar the selfless leader
who saved his party.
Sometimes I think our political system is so
broken, that we only strive to listen when a politico
publicly and uncharacteristically slices his beating
heart open for all to see. Now that he has done
so, perhaps more people will be more open to
getting to know the real Mar, the one that even he
tries to downplay with his immediate staff.
For three years, I worked for him as
communications adviser/consultant and chief of
staff. It was sometimes exasperating though many
times edifying working for someone who insisted
on his own favorite font, Sylfaen, and the
institutionalization of “headers and footers.” We
would sometimes go back and forth, working on
a particular speech, with me ending up exhausted
trying to take all of his ideas and historical
perspectives in. Sometimes, I felt like I was
drowning. But then there was that other side of
Mar. The kind who would buy an entire batch of
ice cream from a sorbetero just so the man could
go home early rather than stand for hours under a
scorching sun; or who would stop a presentation
of a government functionary to inquire about the
department’s budget for toner - the logic being if
the presentor had used a plain background for
his slides then the printed copies would require
less toner, but since he didn’t then maybe the
department had too much money for toner. He
was funny and unpredictable, in that way.
I remember during my early days on the job,
he told me - perhaps to warn me — that he was
not the nurturing type. He doesn’t have the
patience to “mentor” people, he said.
Yet for the three years that I worked for him, I
learned how business principles can actually be
applied to politics and governance to make the
system work. I learned how attention to detail is
key to a successful preparation towards
memorable and meaningful events. I learned how
education matters whether it be for the rich or
poor, because the rich also requires an education
that can only be derived from having the humility
to bow down and listen.
Last night, when I was claiming my space at
the crowded Gabaldon room at Club Filipino, I
turned to my left and saw Thea, Mar’s close-in
aid since Congress, trying her best to hold back
the tears. She failed, miserably. In front of me
were Mar’s cousins, nieces and nephews,
watching him from across the room, sad yet as
always, united in their love and respect for Mar. I
heard Melchor, one of Mar’s political officers,
shout from the back, “Oras na! Roxas Na!” and
saw Chito Gascon of the Liberal Party and Mar’s
political campaign director, doing the same.
After the press conference, I was told by my
friend, Rose Romero, that Mar’s staff and
supporters will proceed to the Cubao campaign
HQ otherwise known as Balay ni Mar. Famished,
Fort, Danton Remoto, John Laylo and myself
opted to grab a quick bite at nearby Gloria Maris
before proceeding to Cubao. Throughout the meal,
we kept going over the events that could have led
to the announcement. I shook my head, knowing
how excruciating this decision was for such a
competitive person like Mar.
At the Balay, Mar was his usual gracious and
outgoing self. He gave comforting hugs to those
who were there, quite a few who have several
questions to ask but opted to hold back and wait
for more decisions to be made. Photos were taken,
a banner was pulled out by the members of the
communications team, Tita Judy Roxas, Ria and
Gus were there together with Korina, entertaining
the guests and just talking about what transpired
that fateful night. It felt more like a family gathering
than a political get-together of allies and friends.
I left the campaign HQ thinking to myself how
wrong Mar was. The tears of his staff proved that
he nurtured and taught them well. The inexplicable
sadness - a certain mourning for what could have
been — the collective inability to articulate with
more gravitas what has transpired, is a
manifestation of shock, that such selflessness
could come so early in this political run-up from a
man who could have easily stood his ground as
party president and chief fundraiser.
Mar was wrong. He is the nurturing type. He
had a dream but chose to nurture a party, and
with it the vision, ambition and dream of another
man. History alone will say if Mar’s sacrifice would
yield the best dividends for the country. At the
very least, the public got to see a different side of
Mar, the giving side that one equates with
principles rather than price tags. Now is a good
time to cultivate, nurture and explore that other
dimension of a Mar Roxas leadership, and not
because he needs anyone’s vote, but simply
because he is what he is.
For now, I wish my former boss and good friend,
Mar Roxas, the best that life has to offer — a
Sudoku session in the quiet of his living room,
perhaps a new dog like his old friend Barney, more
time for golf, and of course, a lifetime of happiness
with Korina.
Politics? In the afterglow, perhaps. But if he
doesn’t? Life goes on, leaving us with even lesser
choices.
Let’s Talk
About it
Minerva Zamora-Arceo
Beyond 2010
THERE IS no doubt about it. Clark International Airport Corp. (CIAC)
President Victor Jose “Chichos” Luciano is the right man for the
Diosdado Macapagal Airport. In just a few years, he was able to
lead his team into a series of good talks, journeys and deals all
over the world. And yes, there earned several air entitlements and
generated several invetsments and flights for DMIA.
Just recently, Luciano and a couple of CIAC officers sealed
yet another victory in the comfort of the overseas Filipino workers.
Luciano’s team met hundreds of OFWS in Hong Kong and easily
got their nod and support for DMIA.
The Bayanihan Kennedy Town Center was packed with our
kababayans on August 30. With their carrying theme “Para sa
Iyo, Ang Airport na Ito,” probably an adaptation of the lines of the
great boxer Manny Pacquiao, the CIAC team immediately won
the hearts of the OFWs.
It was the first ever international roadshow of CIAC. Luciano
said the roadshow is an opportunity for them to inform the people
that there is an airport right at their doorsteps that can bring them
to various Southeast Asian countries for business or employment.
“And in the case of our OFWs, most of which come from the
Northern Philippines, the frequent and low-cost flights at the DMIA
mean they can come home more frequently and economically,”
Luciano stressed.
Luciano was very overwhelmed with the OFWs warmth and
support. He did expect it. But Luciano deserves such acceptance
for he is a man of many surprises too. When he visited Baguio
City, he immediately read the minds of the people of the North. An
intelligent and rational man, he was very quick to say that CIAC
and DMIA will help Loakan Airport find its way for improvement
and development.
And recently speaking with the OFWs, he pointed out the
advantages of DMIA as compared to other gateways in the
Philippines. Its proximity and accessibility are its foremost
advantages. On top of this, DMIA already hosts foreign and local
carriers that include Air Asia of Malaysia, Tiger Airways of Singapore,
South Korea’s Asiana Airlines and local carriers Cebu Pacific Air,
the country’s leading domestic carrier, and South East Asian Airlines
(Seair). Cebu Pacific Air is an unfailing supporter of the promotion
efforts for the DMIA, its fourth hub in the country. The country’s
leading domestic airline has been present in all the CIAC’s
roadshow activities in Luzon and has raffled off free roundtrip tickets
to ASEAN destinations to promote their flights at the DMIA and
the airport.
Meanwhile, Zest Air, a new local carrier, will start its Clark-HKClark route on September 21 while Spirit of Manila Airlines (SOMA)
is also expected to start operations from the DMIA soon.
According to Luciano, ‘the expected increase in flights is adding
to the popularity of the airport and is boosting its viability as the
country’s premier airport which is in line with President Arroyo’s
declaration of the DMIA as the country’s next premier international
airport and best logistics and services hub in the Asia Pacific
Region.”
Luciano is indeed a man ahead of his time. A visionary, he was
able to stir excitement at the DMIA and all over the country. The
tourism roadshows of CIAC are actually gaining confidence for
the airport. The more people learning abaout what DMIA and Clark
can offer, the better chances we have in promoting the metro
Central Luzon aerotropolis.
During an earlier talk with DOT Region 1 Dir. Manny Valera, he
said Central Luzon, especially Clark is the heart of Luzon and
there is no doubt that in the next few years, tourism will increase.
Clark, he said, is the best jump off going to the South and the
North. Valera added that the airport is likewise the center of all of
these activities.
So there is no doubt. Again, Luciano is moving towards the
right direction. I just hope that he could encourage the local
government units and the national government as well to build
more architectural wonders and other man-made destinations so
as to atarct more tourists.
Although, I know the man cannot do it all but he has the
charisma and the credibility to push for something big such as
these. For example, we need to build a huge Pinatubo memorial
Center that would relive the eruption, the Pinatubo disaster and its
impact to the world, the history that followed, the people affected
by the disaster and how we rebuilt our dreams and our lives. Just
like the Holocaust memorial, there should be an edifice or a center,
with a state-of-the-art gallery, ampitheater, and all the works that
would become a top tourist destination in Central Luzon.
Mt. Pinatubo will not erupt in another 600 years or more,
therefore we are building not for our generation but for the rest of
the generations to follow.
Another suggestion which I first got from Ninong Ding Cervantes
is a giant tower of angel that could be erected in the middle of
Astro Park or inside Clark. The monument should be gigantic
because size matters and the story behind the construction is
another attraction. These are just crazy ideas but who knows,
someday you will find out that they are what we need to contain
more tourists in our region.

just about any kind of air transport
requirements, singling out Subic’s
cargo-sorting capability as its edge
over other airports in the country
today.
“We urge cargo airliners to start
making their inquiries here at the
SBIA this early, and see for themselves its complete cargo-sorting
facility, and the Freeport advantages that made FedEx’s operation
here successful,” said Arreza.
Arreza also said he expects
more flights to and from Subic in the
near future, as the SBMA aggressively promotes business and tourism establishments here.
To this, PPA’s Jimenez concurred, saying that Subic has a “very
strategic location.”
“A lot of tourists come here —
foreigners and locals alike. It is also
a booming place in terms of businesses,” said Jimenez, who also
called on interested applicants for
pilots, cabin crew, and maintenance
personnel to inquire at PPA’s office
at the SBIA here.
Pearl Pacific Airways was organized in September 2006 and is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission, with necessary permits from the Philippine Civil
Aeronautics Board (CAB) and the
Air Transportation Office (ATO).

He added that they

It was prepared by
about 50 persons from six

mahaba pa ang panahon
at marami pang posibleng
mangyari bago dumating

Pinabulaanan din ni
Fernando ang haka-hakang si Sec. Gilbert Teodoro ang nais manukin ng
Malacanang at hindi siya.
Ani Fernando, hindi totoo ang balitang iyon at
may mga grupo lamang
umanong iyon ang nais na
palabasin.
Ayon pa kay BF, sa
kasalukuyan ay dalawa na
lamang ang pinagpipilian
ng kanilang partido na magiging standard bearer at
iyon ay sa pagitan na lamang nila ni Teodoro at
hindi na kasama si Vice
President Noli De Castro.
Ngunit kumpyansa din
si Fernando na siya ang
dadalhin ng partidong Lakas sa pagkapangulo at
hindi si Teodoro sa dahilang siya ang orihinal na
miyembro ng partido.
Hindi rin aniya siya natatakot sa deklarasyon ni
Aquino dahil sa iisang
partido lamang ito nagmu-
la at nagpalitan lamang ng
ulo nito dahil sa pag-atras
ni Sen.Mar Roxas.
Maging ang pagbibigay
ng pagsuporta kay Aquino
ng mga gobernador sa
ibat-ibang lalawigan ay hindi rin natigatig si Fernando dahil sa marami pa
aniyang gobernador sa
bansa.
Ngunit ani Fernando,
sakaling hindi siya ang
manukin ng partido sa
pagkapangulo ay gagawa
pa siya ng ibang paraan sa
pagtakbo sa pinakamataas
na posisyon ng bansa.
Hindi rin umano niya
iniisip na siya ay tatakbo
sa pagkabise pangulo
kungdi ang kanyang
preparasyon ay ang
pagkapangulo lamang.
Malapit na rin aniyang
makapagpasya ang kanilang partido para sa kanilang kumpletong line up.
Aniya ito ay natatagalan lamang dahil sa
malaki ang kanilang partido kayat may kahirapang
ito ay buuin ngunit sa sandaling makumpleto ay inaasahan umanong ito ay
isang malaking pwersa.

Sec. Pamintuan, who
is also the Presidential
Adviser for External Affairs, described the work
of SCADC as a partnership
where harmony has been
a very significant element
in its success. “But if we
would like to set the stage
where the objectives of this
Congress will be realized,
we must expand this partnership and bring all
stakeholders into the picture,” he said, expressing
the need for a wider linkage with the Congress
participants.
He also announced the
plans to convert the corridor delineated by the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) into a competitive logistics hub and a
corridor of well planned
expansion. He noted the
distinct advantages of the
corridor, including its strategic location, necessary
infrastructures already in
place, the airport and the
seaport gateways, a
sprawling land area, modern utilities, a qualified and
competent work force and
investor-friendly policies
and procedures.
The high point of the
Congress saw the participants signing a resolution
for the creation of a Regional Coordinating Council for
Education and Employment. Said Sec. Pamin-
tuan: “By signing the resolution, we have taken a
bold step among others
towards institutionalizing
the reforms we need to
change the economic landscape of Central Luzon.”
The Secretary then left
a thought-provoking notion
to all participants, saying,
“matching and integrating
education and employment is not a matter of simple supply and demand,
but a challenge of human
dignity. He concluded his
speech, saying, “Work
dignifies, and dignified
work liberates.”

MASALIMUOT yung isyu ng break up nina Angel Locsin at Luis Manzano. Sinasabi ng iba na
pinalitan na ng ibang babae ni Luis si Angel kaya binansagan itong pabling ng kanyang
mga detractors. Kasabay nito, nagsalita rin si Angel na wala pa rin siyang ibang lalaki.
Hindi raw totoo na silang dalwa na ni Sam Milby.
Nagsalita na si Batangas Governor Vilma Santos ng kanyang
reaksiyon tungkol sa pagtatampo ng showbiz press kina Luis at
Edu Manzano.
Ang isyu kay Luis ay ang pagiging playboy daw nito kaya sila
nag-break ni Angel Locsin.
“Matagal nang isyu ‘yang playboy image ni Lucky. I’m proud sa
anak ko. But seriously speaking, sadyang malambing ang anak ko
at kayo na ring taga-press ang magpapatunay na ganyan si Lucky.
Super-makisama na nami-misinterpret ng iba,” paliwanag ni Ate Vi.
Never din daw nakialam si Ate Vi sa break-up ng anak at ni Angel.
Inamin din niyang close at mahal niya si Angel at naniniwala siya
sa sinabi ng actress na walang nama-magitan sa kanila ni Sam Milby.
Tulad din ng paniniwala niya sa anak na wala itong ibang babaing
pinormahan maliban kay Angel.
Natawa din si Ate Vi dahil maging ang ex-husband ay sangkot din sa
tampo ng showbiz press.
“Si Eduardo, grabe ang pagmamahal niyan sa

Hindi si Aljur ang first kiss ko!”
–KRIS BERNAL
LUCKY DUDE si Aljur Abrenica sa Cosmo Bash kagabi dahil hindi lang
si Kris Bernal, ka-MU at kapareha sa Nandito Ako… Nagmamahal sa
’Yo, ang nag-cheer sa kanya kundi pati si Carla Abellana, na si Aljur ang
choice as the sexiest Celebrity Centerfold ng Cosmo.
Sa presscon ng Regal Entertainment movie na showing sa September 30, “wala” ang birong sagot ni Aljur nang tanungin kung ano ang
isusuot sa pagrampa sa NBC Tent.
Dapat talaga niyang ipagmalaki ang abs na nakuha through hard
work, diet at sacrifice.
Anyway, bonggang kilig ang mararamdaman ng fans nina Aljur at
Kris ’pag pinanood ang launching movie nila sa rami ng kilig scenes.
Sa kissing scene pa lang, solved na sila’t may isang kissing scene
na inabot ng 10 minutes dahil kinunan ni Direk Maryo J. delos Reyes
sa iba’t ibang anggulo.
“Inaamin ko namang nadala ako sa kissing scene namin, tao
lang ako at ninamnam ko ang mga eksenang ’yon. Na-electrify po
ako,” pag-amin ni Aljur.
Inamin din ng dalawa na may MU sila at nag-a-‘I love you’ sa text
at sa personal ’pag nagkikita. Sa tanong kung nagki-kiss sila offcam, ayaw sumagot ni Aljur, pero si Kris, game.
“Smack lang naman, ‘pag nagbababay kami, pero hindi siya
ang first kiss ko.
“Nagka-boyfriend na rin naman ako. Sa showbiz, siya ang first kiss ko,”
paglilinaw nito.
Si Mother Lily Monteverde naman ang tinanong ng press, bakit niya binigyan ng launching movie sina Aljur at Kris?
“Bilib na bilib ako sa kanila, they’re the hottest loveteam of the year,” say nito,
na ang isa pala sa pinagbasehan ay ang magandang rating ng Dapat Ka Bang
Mahalin? at All My Life ng magka-loveteam sa GMA-7.

PPA president Kristoffer Jimenez said the airline will start with two
advanced Boeing 737-200 jet planes
capable of seating 114 passengers
for international flights, and turboprop aircraft for initial domestic
flights from here to Boracay, Bohol,
Cebu, and Davao.
Local flight destinations will expand as PPA establishes its presence in the local airline industry,
said Jimenez.
He added that PPA will be offering competitive rates without sacrificing quality service costs — an advantage that he said was made possible by tax incentives and other
perks offered by this free port.
Jimenez also said that PPA will
eliminate stop-over hassles with its
direct flights, enabling passengers
to gain more savings and more quality holidays as it significantly cuts
travel lag time.
Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) administrator Armand Arreza, who signed the memorandum
of agreement with Jimenez last
week, considered this latest investment here as proof of Subic Bay’s
economic resiliency.
“What we have witnessed now
proves that there’s still life after FedEx,” said Arreza, referring to the
US courier giant which used this
free port as its Asia-Pacific hub. Last
February, FedEx transferred to China, where domestic cargo volume
alone exceeds that of Asia.
Arreza said that being an inter-

Blueboy to focus on sports

Dads express
disgust over
drowning of
city workers
8
ANGELES CITY – Councilors
Jay Sangil and Ruben Maniago yesterday expressed disappointment over the drowning incident in Bataan province leading to the death of
two city hall workers last Saturday.
Sangil said that Odel De
Guzman, 38 and Lester Tolentino, 22, both assigned at
the City Mayor’s Office
Records Section, should not
have died if the order of the
mayor banning team building
seminars had been followed.
It was reported that some
20 employees of the city executive’s office and led by
City Administrator Mark Allen
Sison and City Information
Officer Lourdes Naguiat, held
a team-building seminar last
September 5 at the Sunset
Beach Resort in Barangay
Poblacion, Morong, Bataan,
in spite of the already poor
weather conditions. At around
5:30 p.m. of that same day,
the two victims went for a dip
at the shallow waters of the
beach when a strong current
suddenly hit both of them that
sucked them away. The body
of Tolentino was found after a
few minutes. However, De
Guzman’s body was not
found until 3 a.m. of September 7, Monday, two days after the incident.
Sangil and Maniago said
what “displeased and surprised” them was that the
seminar was pushed despite
memorandum circular issued
by the Office of the City Mayor earlier this year restraining
all offices of the local government from holding such an
event because of the budget
difficulties of the city.
“They should set an example to other departments
of the government by at least
abiding by their own rules,”
said the minority councilors.
“And should have been be prudent enough to see the danger of holding a seminar by
the beach in bad weather.”
In a text message, Sison
said there was no memorandum issued by the mayor restraining the holding of seminars and that the event was a
“personal outing.”
“Sana e na la makisake,
mete na la pin ring tau, kakanyanan la pa. Bahala na la
reng kaladua da ring mete
karing publicity-seekers, (We
hope they don’t ride on the
issue anymore. Why do they
still bother the dead? Let the
souls of the dead deal with
these publicity seekers)” Sison texted. –Joey Pavia
ANGELES CITY – Mayor Francis “Blueboy” Nepomuceno
stressed that his government
had performed well with eight
more months remaining until
the 2010 elections.
In statements issued by City
Administrator Mark Allen Sison
on Friday, Nepomuceno said
his 4.7 performance management system (PMS) rating given by the regional Department
of Interior and Local Govern-
ment (DILG) this year “speaks
well of (his) achievement.”
“The mayor wants to do even
better and achieve the perfect
5 PMS rating from the DILG,”
said Sison, disclosing that the
first-term mayor got a 4.3 rating last year.
Nepomuceno said he will focus more on sports and health
care services in the remaining
months of his first term.
The mayor said he will work
for the realization of the P813million sports complex, adding
that “it will do more good than
harm for the people.”
Asked to comment about
the negative comments of their
political opponents, Nepomuceno said “it’s a free country and they can state their own
opinion.”
“But why do they have to resort to this political mudslinging to gain mileage?,” added Nepomuceno.
Nepomuceno, a former
three-term congressman, expressed confidence that his
team will fare well in the next
elections.
Nepomuceno disclosed that
incumbent Councilors Ric
Zalamea, Pogs Suller, Dan Lacson and Rudy Simeon will join
his ticket. He added that
Zalamea will be his runningmate for vice mayor.
Nepomuceno said their lineup is complete but could only
mention three of the aspiring
councilors. They are Pengot
Del Rosario, Alex Indiongco
and Atty. Bryan Nepomuceno.
