Increase education
budget – Angeles
BY DING CERVANTES
A
NGELES CITY – The former
chairman of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) has urged an increase
in the budget for education from
this year’s 2.71 percent to at least
four percent of the gross domestic
product (GDP) by next year, as he
warned of “catastrophe” by 2040
amid the threat of population
increase.

ZAMBALES – Supporters of Compania Minera Tubajon, Inc. (CMTI)
gathered yesterday infront of Baloganon Port, Masinloc, here to protest the alleged illegal takeover of
the Coto Mines here.
More than 50 people, most of
them wearing yellow shirts, denounced the actions of former Masinloc Mayor Jessu Edora and police
provincial director, Senior Supt.
Rafael Santiago, Jr. after leading the
alleged takeover of Coto Mines operations without presenting any le-
gal document to justify their move.
CMTI Security Manager Eduardo Garcia said that on the night
of June 22 while they were on duty
inside the Coto Mines, police led
by Santiago raided the compound
and rounded up all their personnel
including Chinese nationals on alPAGE 6 PLEASE
Fil-Am daughter once
courted by serial killer
‰ To act as complainant in Angeles murders
ANGELES CITY – A
daughter of a retired US
serviceman and his Filipino wife will act as complainant against the suspected serial killer who had
once reportedly courted
her before he went on a
killing spree that victimized
her parents, and seven
others in separate incidents this month here.
Senior Supt. Danny
Bautista, director of the
Angeles police, said the
police failed to file last
Monday multiple murder
and robbery cases against
suspect Mark Dizon, 28,
who, as a computer technician and reflexologist,
had befriended many foreigners, including his victims, in this city.
This, even as Bautista
backtracked on his suspicion that the suspect’s
motive was to gain access
to the bank accounts and
financial dealings of the
foreigners by stealing their
laptops after killing them.
“I don’t think he is capable of such complex
operations. He operated

BALANGA CITY, Bataan – Jonie Capalaran, a person
with disability, regularly joins press conferences in
Bataan. Capalaran asked Mayor Jose Enrique Garcia III on “what are the plans of the city for PWDs?
“The city council has decided to strengthen present
laws and create awareness on the condition of disabled persons here, making it a disabled-friendly city
so they can live comfortably,” the mayor answered.
Garcia also disclosed that he will see to it that
disabled persons will have proper access to all infrastructures in the city, and existing laws covering PWDs
are properly followed.
After the presscon, Capalaran faced the computer, wrote his story and sent it to the Pilipino Star Ngayon
where he works as a provincial correspondent for years.
He also filed his report with radio station DZRH.

Gov distributes relief goods to landslide victims in Arayat
Simpauco, municipal
and barangay officials
joined Pineda in the
distributing packs of
relief goods.
Almost a thousand
individuals in the village
thanked the governor for
the help she extended.
The victims have been
living in makeshift
shelters for months now.
Pineda said that with
the onset of rainy
season, “I am very much
worried that their exposure to the bad weather
would adversely affect
their health condition,
especially the children.”
The governor also
urged vice-mayors of
various towns and cities
in the province to
prioritize programs on
health and social
services for their respective constituents.
“Let’s make the
delivery of effective
health services to our
municipalities as one of
our priorities,” the
governor told municipal
officials recently.

Porac dad urges anew
toll road at west dike
‰ ‘Provincial gov’t to save P100-M’
BY JOEY PAVIA
MABALACAT, Pampanga
– Porac Councilor Mike
Tapang yesterday stressed
the need to develop the
west lateral dike as alterative road for sand haulers
in Pampanga.
Tapang, president of
the Porac Quarry Association (PQA), made anew
his appeal after Gov. Lilia
“Baby” Pineda had inspected the west portion of the
FVR megadike last week.
The governor was disappointed to see that the
structure had been badly
damaged by trucks passing along the 16-kilometer
dike for about 15 years.
Tapang said he will
present to Pineda a study
made and completed by
PQA in 2009 on the
group’s proposal to allow a
prominent private agency
develop, maintain and operate the dike completed in
1995.
In the study, the PQA
said a local or international company would be
asked to create a toll road
on the west dike allowing
the smooth transfer of sand
from quarry sites in the
province to Metro Manila.
The PQA study proposed a build-operatetransfer scheme (BOT). It
could be recalled that
Tapang had been criticized
for publicly announcing his
support for the creation of
a toll road on the dike.
But Tapang said he felt
vindicated as Gov. Lilia
“Baby” Pineda expressed
her intention to develop the
dike using the provincial
government’s funds.
Pineda vowed to infuse
at least P100 million for the
repair and maintenance of
the dike passing along areas in Bacolor, Sta. Rita
and Porac.
However, Tapang said
their proposal will allow
Pineda to save the P100million funds intended for

Calamitous figures

“…Sa kabuuan ng 108 million pesos para sa
lalawigan ng Pampanga, 105 million pesos nito ay
napunta sa iisang distrito lamang.
Samantala, ang lalawigan ng Pangasinan na
sinalanta ng Pepeng ay nakatanggap ng limang
milyong piso (P5M) lamang para sa pinsalang
idinulot ng bagyong Cosme, na nangyari noong
2008 pa.
Ibinigay po ang pondo ng Pampanga sa buwan
ng eleksyon, pitong buwan pagkatapos ng Ondoy
at Pepeng. Paano kung bumagyo bukas? Inubos
na ang pondo nito para sa bagyong nangyari
noong isang taon pa. Pagbabayaran ng
kinabukasan ang kasakiman ng nakaraan…”
(The entire province of Pampanga received P108
million. Of this, P105 million went to only one district.
On the other hand, the province of Pangasinan,
which was severely affected by Typhoon Pepeng,
received a mere P5 million, which had to be used to
fix damages inflicted not even by Pepeng, but by a
previous typhoon, Cosme which hit in 2008 yet.
The funds were released on election month, which
was seven months after the typhoons. What will
happen if a typhoon arrives tomorrow? The fund has
been used up to repair damage from typhoons that
hit us last year. Our future will pay for the greed of
yesterday.)
So revealed President Benigno Simeon C.
Aquino III in his State of the Nation Address (SONA)
as he presented a litany on the alleged depletion of
the 2010 national budget by the Macapagal-Arroyo
administration.
Quick was the reaction – and the defense of the
former President – by the mayors of Pampanga’s
second district.
No, contrary to P-Noy’s SONA assertions, the
second district’s local government units have yet to
receive the mentioned calamity funds of “shocking
quantities.”.
So asserted Mayors Eduardo D. Guerrero of
Floridablanca, Mylene P. Pineda-Cayabyab of
Lubao, Ricardo Rivera of Guagua, Yolanda M.
Pineda of Sta. Rita, Condralito P. de la Cruz of Porac
and Josefina C. Leoncio of Sasmuan.
Joined in Gov. Lilia Pineda: Documents will show
that projects in the second district – now represented
in the House by Congresswoman Gloria MacapagalArroyo – are still waiting for funds to be released by
the Department of Budget and Management.
With that status of the funds, all it takes is an order
from the President to withhold the release of money,
a mayor noted. “And we are bound to submit to his
order.”
The Pampanga mayors expressed the hope that
P-Noy “should check his figures before going on a
blaming spree against the previous administration.”

Trucking the dike
Real lessons in life
SO SORDIDLY degraded is the western lateral portion of the FVR
Megadike system that Gov. Lilia “Nanay Baby” Pineda shed off her
innate caring, nurturing nature to lambaste at the dike’s degraders
– the quarry truckers.
Nanay Baby went to the extent of contemplating a total ban on
all quarry operations around that area, and – even if it sounded a
nigh redundant – declaring it off-limits to all quarry trucks.
In a subsequent dialogue with truckers – at least the faction
that howled “unfair” and swooped down the Capitol at the time of
the now-unlamented Panlilio administration, officials of the
Department of Public Works and Highways, mayors and barangay
chairs of the areas traversed by the dike, Nanay Baby’s heart
melted anew.
The quarry truckers – so they claimed – had no choice but
make use of the western portion of the FVR megadike, with the
quarry truck ban in Sta. Rita and in Angeles City. The dike road
runs from Porac to the City of San Fernando, cutting through the
Gapan-Olongapo-San Fernando stretch in Bacolor.
The enormous contribution of the quarry industry to the provincial
coffers was even invoked as a mitigating argument to support the
truckers’ cause.
LEARN FROM the mistakes of others. History repeats itself. Life
is what we make it. These are just some of the most often-quoted
statements about life and living. But we learn life through our own
experience.
Here are some real lessons in life – as what I have experienced
it and what others have shared. You may agree to some of them or
you may not, but that’s life. We cannot please everyone.
Don’t trust the power of your brain all the time. Sometimes, the
brain has no control over forgetfulness.
No matter how good your intentions are (like helping other
people), there are always those who look at it the other way around.
They may think you have hidden agenda. Don’t take too much of
your time with those people who criticizes you; they will stop
annoying you if you don’t pay attention to them.
Never estimate the power of one. It only takes one match to
start a fire. Because of one vote, Adolph Hitler became the leader
of Nazi Party in 1923. It was also because of one vote that led
Charles I of England to be executed.
Just because you are young, you won’t go far. Alfred Lord
Tennyson was only 18 when he wrote his first classic. Napoleon
Bonaparte was 25 when he conquered Italy. Sir Isaac Newton made
his greatest discoveries before he was 25. Jesus Christ reshaped
the world at 30.
Which Nanay Baby instantly shot down with
a riposte on the cost of the megadike and the
construction of roads vis-à-vis the benefits from
the quarry industry. A lopsided equation there
tilting against the truckers’ reasoning.
Indeed, Pampanga could not afford to lose its
income from the sand, so Nanay Baby conceded.
But neither can it allow its infrastructure to go to
waste.
A happy compromise, a win-win solution
showed greatest promise in a road parallel to the
dike which will be for the sole use of the quarry
trucks.
Nanay Baby put up an ante of P100 million for
the construction of that dedicated lane for trucks.
How about the truckers?
One Lacsamana who spoke on the truckers’
behalf said they shall abide by any order from the
governor even as he needed to consult his group
on the win-win solution proffered.
I do not know how this faction of the truckers
group would finally come to terms with the
dedicated road proposal. But I do know that there
has been a proposal akin to it submitted to the
then Panlilio administration.
In October last year, Mike Tapang, president
of the Pampanga Quarry Association (PQA),
asked the DPWH to “officialize” the truckers’ use
of a six-kilometer stretch of the western lateral
portion of the FVR Megadike which they had been
doing – anyway – for years. Its use even
intensified during the construction of the SubicClark-Tarlac Expressway.
A proviso to Tapang’s proposal was the PQA
itself shall assume the cost of rehabilitating and
maintaining the megadike road on a build-operatetransfer scheme.
Tapang’s proposal was promptly damned, sans
any serious consideration of it.
Board Members Cris Garbo and Ric Yabut told
the Pampanga Mayors League that the
sangguniang panlalawigan would “definitely” not
allow the use of the megadike as conveyance of
quarry trucks.
“It is not feasible. The megadike was built for
protection from lahar. If we allow quarry trucks to
use that road, it is for sure to get dilapidated and
that would be a potential risk and danger zone to
residents living near the megadike.” So was Yabut
quoted as saying.
Articulating the views of his boss, Art
Punzalan, chief of staff of Vice Governor Yeng
Guiao said then: “The vice governor is against the
use of the megadike road for truckers. The
potential for damage and danger is too big for that.
Besides, the megadike road was not designed
for that. Even a non-engineer could readily see
and understand that. Even if Tapang said his group
will shoulder the costs, it is not feasible.”
Former Bacolor Mayor Ananias Canlas, himself
a lahar survivor, said: “They should know better. A
more in-depth study should be made on that issue
and alternatives must be sought. Imagine the
scenario if the megadike is destroyed by these
truckers.”
The DPWH itself maintained that the multibillion-peso FVR Megadike was “built to contain
lahar and floodwater and not to be used as service
road by heavy vehicles like trucks loaded with
quarry materials.”
Amid that cacophony of nays, there was only
one aye at that time: that of putative Provincial
Administrator Atty. Vivian Dabu.
Said Dabu: “They cannot use the Sta. Rita
roads. They are banned from Angeles City. They
could have access to the SCTEx. Paano naman
ang mga truckers at quarry operators natin? How
will the industry survive kung wala na silang
pwedeng daanan?”
And so it was that sole dissenting, if not
aberrant voice, that made all the difference. The
truckers continued using the megadike road, now
potholed, eroded, breached, devastated.
Back to square one.
The ability to focus attention on important things
is a defining characteristic of intelligence.

Do not despise the old folks either. Robert Frost
wrote his famous poems when he turned 80. Oliver
Wendell Holmes was a chief justice when he was
90. Architect Frank Lloyd did his best work at 86.
Indestructible John Wesley was still preaching at
88.
Learn to appreciate what you have in life. Do
not get jealous with what others have. “Don’t
compare your life to others,” wrote newspaper
columnist Regina Brett. “You have no idea what
their journey is all about.”
There is no such thing as one-man army.
Heroes oftentimes have sidekicks (think of
Batman and Robin). Two heads are better than
one. You can accomplish more in life if you have
a companion. Adam was lonely without Eve.
Say thank you to those who have done
something for you. In fact, say thank you even
before you ask for something – from God, from
your boss, or from someone.
Life is full of opportunities to celebrate, so don’t
miss any of them: your birthday, passing of the
board examination of your nephew or niece, your
sister having a child, your father turning 65 years
old, or getting a promotion of your job.
Practice dancing. There are times when
happiness is appreciated and felt if you dance.
Dance even if you are alone. Laurie Beth Jones,
author of Jesus in Blue Jeans, once penned:
“Sometimes we dance and sometimes we fall.
And there is a net under us all.”
If you can’t dance at all, try singing. Sing out
loud. And whether you are a fine singer or don’t
have that good voice to attract attention, please
don’t sing “My Way” in public videoke bars and
pubs or you will end up dead. “And so I face the
final curtain,” so goes one line of the song.
Many times when you feel farthest from the
truth, you are very close to it. And when you think
you are on top of the world, you can be sitting in
a very dangerous place.
If you want to watch someone grow several
inches in stature before your eyes, just praise
her or him in public.
When the horse you are riding suddenly
refuses to move, don’t kick it. Get off and look for
the angel standing in the road. That horse might
be saving your life.
Do not despise the little things. Your 99.99
can never be a hundred without 0.1. Sweat the
small stuff. Little things mean a lot. And never
believe in yourself too much. You are just one
of the seven billion people living in this world
today.
If you are a good leader and secured with what
you are doing, train someone who will take your
place. Florence Littauer, a best-selling author of
thirteen books, trained others how to become
successful authors themselves. “If you think I am
proudest of my books, you are wrong,” she was
quoted as saying. “I am most proud of the people
I have helped to become writers themselves.”
When traveling, don’t carry bags for just
anyone. If you can’t say no, be sure to open those
that you have to carry for your own sake (there
might be some illegal drugs inside and you will
be in big trouble when you arrive in your final
destination).
When you are a tourist in another country,
there are three things you should always bring
with you: passport (your identification), air ticket
(except when it is an e-ticket and you memorize
the code), and wallet (if you want to buy
something). Never go out from your hotel without
these three.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder,
someone told me. But how do you explain “out of
sight, out of mind”?
There are always three solutions to a problem:
the right solution, the wrong solution, and finding
the middle ground. But more often than not, people
choose the wrong solution for some unknown
reasons.
Don’t be afraid to fail. Sir Winston Churchill
suffered financial ruin more than once while his
political career was seemingly aborted on several
occasions. Perhaps it was Churchill’s numerous
failures that led him to define success as “going
from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”
If all fails, try love. After all, love conquers
everything. “But the greatest of them all,” the Bible
reminds, “is love.”

‘Justice delayed,
Justice denied’
WALONG BUWAN na mahigit mula nang maganap
Sa Maguindanao ang pinaka-talamak
At maka-hayop na pagpaslang at sukat
Sa mga sibilyan at mamamahayag
Ng hinihinalang kampon nitong isang
Makapangyarihan at kinikilalang
Angkan sa lalawigan ng Maguindanao,
Na ka-alyado ni Gloria Macapagal.
Pero hanggang ngayon tila ‘pending’ pa rin
Ang imbestigasyon o anumang ‘hearing’
Na kinakailangang isulong at dinggin
Ng DOJ o ng ‘court of justice’ natin.
Kung saan bunsod ng lubhang kabagalan
Ng ika nga ay ‘due process’ na kailangan,
Lalayo pa ba sa ang kahantungan n’yan
Ay posibleng ‘dismissed’ lang sa kalaunan?
Sa kadahilanang baka ang husgado,
Partikular na ang ‘prosecution’ mismo
Ay wala ng mai-prisintang testigo
Kapag tumagal ang pagbista sa kaso?
Pagkat di malayong iisa-isahing
Sila’y ililigpit at/o dudukutin
Para tuluyan ng ya’y patahimikin,
Gaya nang nangyari sa naunang ‘victim’
At sa iba pa r’yang posibleng ‘witnesses’
Na nawawala na’t di na mai-’present’
Ng DOJ sa alin mang ‘court of justice’
Sa oras ng ‘presentation of evidence’
Kaya’t marapat lang na maging maagap
Ang DOJ at ang iba pang alagad
Ng ating hustisya upang di lumigwak
Ang kaso laban sa kampon ni Satanas;
Na ang lahat na ay di malayong gawin
Nitong mga suspek para lang linisin
Ang pangalan, kahit milyones ang hingin
Ng kung sinumang pupuede nilang bilhin.
Sukdang magpapatay uli at gumamit
Ng dahas gaya ng naunang nabanggit,
Upang ang sarili’y iabsuweltong pilit
Sa pagka-bilanggo matapos malitis.
Pagkat tunay namang mas maliwanag pa
Sa sikat ng araw base sa istorya
Ng mga testigo ang sabi’y brutal na
Pagpatay ni Andal sa mga biktima
Kaya’t kung talagang ang kasong naturan
Ay sa ‘fair and impartial trial’ dadaan,
Walang pasubaling di mahahatulan
Ng ‘multiple life’ ang batang Ampatuan
Kasama pati na ilang alipores
Ng utak demonyong pinaka-’prime suspect’
Nitong ang sabi nga natin ay ‘murder case’
Na maituturing na ‘most celebrated
Politic related’ na kasong pagpatay
Pati sa ’ting kapatid sa hanapbuhay,
At kaawa-awang mga walang malay
Na sibilyang pawang mga napadamay.
Dahil diyan, ang media – ‘in print or in broadcast,
Ay di maglulubay sa lahat ng oras
Sa pagkatok sa ‘ting mga otoridad,
Hanggang sa ang kasong ito ay malutas.

“The potential source of
funds may come from the
Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) of
senators and congressmen. If 10 percent of their
PDAF is set aside for
higher education, there will
be P2.58 billion for transformation programs,”
former CHED chairman
Emmanuel Angeles said in
a report titled “Transformation of Philippine Education in the Next Decade”
which he finalized before
he left his post recently.
Angeles reported that
“in the last five years, higher education enrollment
averaged 2.6 million of
whom 32 percent belong
to poor and disadvantaged
families.”
Under its present budget, CHED could provide
scholarships only to
65,000 or eight percent of
them, he lamented.
Angeles reported that
“in the last five years, higher education enrollment
averaged 2.6 million of
whom 32 percent belong
to poor and disadvantaged
families.”
Under its present budget, CHED could provide
scholarships only to
65,000 or eight percent of
them, he said.
His report also reported that of some 130,000
faculty members in 1,758
colleges and universities in
the country, only 45,156 or
35 percent have masters
degrees, while merely
12,670 or 10 percent have
doctorates.
Angeles said increasing the education budget
to four percent of the GDP
will mean 49.4 increase.
Allocating 15 percent of
this amount to higher ed-
ucation would be enough
to bring the country to global status, he added.
Angeles noted that this
year, the total budget for
education is P204.3 billion
which represents about
2.71 percent of the GDP.
Of this amount, P26.37
billion or 12.9 percent is for
higher education.
But he again lamented
that such budget allocation is the lowest in Southeast Asia, together with
that of Bangladesh.
Indonesia’s education
budget is 3.6 percent of its
GDP, Singapore’s is 3.7
percent, Hong Kong’s is
3.9 percent, Thailand’s is
4.2 percent, Brunei’s is 5.2
percent, and Malaysia’s is
6.2 percent, he said.
Angeles added that
education budget increase
would address the needs
of the country’s population
which grows at two per-
cent annually, so that by
2040, Filipinos would number about 180 million.
“If we do not equip our
youth today with quality
education, help them generate new knowledge and
prime them for tomorrow’s
challenges, it would be
major catastrophe for the
Philippines by 2040,” he
warned.
Apart from increase in
education budget, Angeles also batted for massive
student scholarships and
financial assistance programs, massive faculty
development program, research and development,
campus development and
facilities upgrading, curricular reforms and, holding
of scholastic aptitude
tests, among other measures.
Angeles said that current funds for scholarships
are not enough to help
manifesto amid the allegations of two CIAC board
members and a Pampanga town mayor that Luciano had lost the support
of the employees. The
signatories included eight
out of the nine CIAC managers.
“Under Luciano’s leadership the salaries had
been improved to competitive levels while CIAC itself had adopted a strong
corporate citizenship,” the
resolution said.
It also noted that “Lu-
ciano had been a pioneer
who was instrumental to
the start of international
commercial passenger
flights at the DMIA with the
entry of South Korea’s
Asiana Airlines in 2004.”
The statement also lamented the “black propaganda being waged
against him by some politicians in Pampanga province.” It was apparently
referring to Candaba Mayor Jerry Pelayo who recently criticized Luciano
who had allowed the demolition of unused buildings
within the civil aviation
complex for donation to
Aeta tribal folk.
The statement said that
the move to improve the
airport “is not an easy walk
in the park” and that Luciano had “pioneered and
piloted” the DMIA to its
present status as an international airport.” It noted
that Luciano’s accomplishments at the CIAC
were recognized last year
by the Pampanga provincial government which
named him Outstanding
Kapampangan.
“Luciano is also recipient of the Asian Institute
of Management’s Triple A
Award for his contribution
to the airport industry that
generatedpositive developments not only in the
Clark Freeport Zone but in
the entire country, “ the
statement further said.
The Clark airport now
plays host to other airlines
such as Malaysia’s Air
Asia, Singapore’s Tiger
Airways, Cebu Pacific,
Seair and Pacific Flier.
More airlines such as Jin
Air and Air Busan are seriously considering to also
locate here.

legations of staying without working permit. The
place is about 27 kilometer from the Masinloc town
proper.
After a few hours of interrogation, having found
no irregularity with the
presence of the Chinese
nationals, Santiago left,
Garcia added.
CMTI Project Manager
Romualdo Nunez said that
they operate the Coto
Mines by virtue of a Mining Permit and Sharing
Agreement (MPSA) valid
for 25 years and only the
national government has
the power to grant or revoke it.
Nunez also said “they
are committing a big mistake in taking over the mining company.”
“Preparations for the filing of cases with damages are now being readied
against the people behind
this,” he said.
Earlier reports quoted
Zambales Governor Hermogenes Ebdane, Jr. ordering the Philippine National Police and local municipal officials to stop all
small scale mining operations in the province.
Ebdane vowed to put
a stop in mining activities
during his campaign sortie. Former Zambales
Governor Amor Deloso
who lost to Ebdane allowed the operations of
small scale mining operations province-wide during his one-term-stint. The
provincial government is
mandated by law to issue
mining permits only to
small scale mining operations.
Journalists tried to get
Edora’s side but his secu-
rity guard and maid said
he was not around when
visited at his residence in
Masinloc. Meanwhile, Ebdane’s media relations officer Carrie Aspa-Empeno
told journalists to interview
Santiago instead. As of
presstime, reporters have
yet to receive reactions
from Edora, Ebdane and
Santiago.
Meanwhile supporters
of CMTI are calling on Pnoy to look into the matter as they challenge him
to make good with his
promise of good governance. –Emil Carreon

on his own,” he said, amid
allegations the suspect
had been emotionally disturbed before the murders.
Bautista said the murder and robbery cases are
to be filed today as this
city commemorated the
Iglesia ni Cristo anniversary as a non-working holiday yesterday.
He said that Czarina
Mitchell, daughter of Dizon’s latest victims, will
be the complainant in the
case. She was reportedly once courted by the
suspect before she left for
the US after marrying a Filipino-American.
“The case of the
Mitchells will be the first,
since it was in their case
that Dizon was identified
as the suspect,” he said.
Czarina, who is married to
a Filipino-American based
in the US, arrived recently after the murder of her
parents retired US air
force MSgt. Albert Mitchell, 70, and her mother
Janet, 53, and their
househelps Isabel Fajardo, Marissa Prado, and
Yulberto Catli in their
home in Hensonville
Court subdivision in
Barangay Malabanias last
July 22.
Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan said Dizon is also
the suspect in the killing
of South African national
ers in higher education to
have at least an appropriate master’s degree.
Angeles also lamented
the government’s budget
for research and development which is only 0.12
percent of the GDP “is far
below the Unesco benchmark of one percent for
developing countries.”
“Latest data also show
that the country has only
165 research and development personnel per million
population, compared to
the Unesco standard of
380 personnel per million
population,” he said.

poor but deserving students, as he pushed for a
program that, he noted,
could be called “Isang
Iskolar para sa Isang Mahirap ng Pamilya.”
He also called for the
improvement of the “administration and implementation of the student
loan program” and an increase in the scholarships
for every student.
Noting the low number
of faculty members with
masters and doctorate
degrees, Angeles urged
the strict enforcement of
the policy requiring teach-
Geoffrey Allan Bennun,
60, and his live-in partner,
Abegail Helina, 20,
whose decomposing bodies were found inside their
house at Oasis Hotel and
Villas in Clarkville Compound in Barangay Anunas here last July 12.
Dizon was also tagged
as suspect in the murders
last July 16 of British
James Bolton Porter, 51,
and his live-in partner,
Melissa Madarang, 22, in
their house at 4-11A Nicolas St. in Sta. Maria subdivision in Barangay Balibago here.
Bautista said that in all
cases, laptops of the victims seemed to have been
the main target of the sus-
pect and that ballistic
tests on slugs taken from
all the incidents indicated
that only one .9 mm. pistol was used by the suspect.
Bautista clarified that
while a local court had issued a warrant of arrest
against Dizon and one
named Edgar Bognot for
carnapping and robbery
sometime in 2005, the
case was eventually archived because of the failure of the complainant to
show up in court.
“Bognot was arrested
while Dizon went into hiding. But sometime the following year, the case was
archived,” he said.

He added that Pineda could

“As long as we get the

SA STANCE na halos masuka si Lovi Poe sa tuwing nagsasalita tungkol kay
Congressman Ronald Singson. Pinalabas ni Lovi na walang katothanan na
mayrelasyon sila ni Ronald. Kumbaga, her camp makes us believe na talagang
friends lang ang dalawa.
Anyway, it was Governor Chavit himself who is telling media people na ang
dahilan ng pagpunta ni Ronald sa Hongkong nang madakip siyang may dalang
cocaine ay dahil sa break up nila ni Lovi. Na dahil dismayed ang kongresista,
niyaya siya ng mga kaibigan to while away time in Macau. Gusto raw nitong
maghapi-hapi para nga ma-console ito sa naganap na break up.
Alangan namang imbentuhin ni governor ang mga pinagsasabi niya. Di po
ba? Isa pa, open secret naman talaga na may relasyon na ang dalawa noon pa
man. Kitang-kita yun sa mga ikinikilos nila kapag magkasama silang dalawa.
Anyway, nilinaw ng manager ni Lovi Poe na si Leo Dominguez na hindi
kasama ang kanyang alagang si Lovi sa trip sa Hong Kong ng rumored BF
niyang si Cong. Ronald Singson.
Kasi sa balita, naaresto ng HK police si Cong. Ronald for possession of
illegal drugs na kasama nga si Lovi Poe. Sabi ni Leo, naririto sa Pilipinas si
Lovi dahil may Party Pilipinas ang singer-actress tuwing Sunday at may three
by Cesar Pambid
days ding rehearsal para sa naturang show.
Tungkol naman sa relasyon kay Cong. Ronald, walang inaamin si Lovi na sila na simula pa noon. Madalas
niyang sinasabi, close sila ni Ronald pero walang commitment sa isa’t isa.
Sa interview nga ng press kay Gov. Chavit Singson, nasabi niyang nag-break na ang anak niyang si Cong.
Ronald Singson at Lovi Poe noong gabi pagkatapos ng Usher concert sa SM Mall of Asia.
Samantala, some sources na allege ang dahilan umano ng break-up nina Lovi at Ronald ay ang pagpasok sa
buhay ni Lovi ng bago nitong leading man na si Rocco Nacino.
Madalas magkita sina Lovi at Rocco sa Party Pili-pinas rehearsal at sa mismong show tuwing Sunday na
labis daw na ipinagseselos ni Cong. Ronald. At ang grabeng selos daw na umatake kay Cong. Ronald ay nu’ng
magpunta sina Lovi at Rocco sa Palawan para i-shoot ang bagong episode ng Lovebug.
Magmula raw noon, ma-dalas na bigla na lang umii-yak si Lovi. Balita pa nga sa press na ang shoulder-tocry on ni Lovi ay si Rocco, na lalo raw ipinagselos ni Cong. Ronald.
Pero, sa presscon ng Kaya ng Powers kung saan mainstay si Rocco, sinabi ng binata na best of friends
lang sila ni Lovi, although inamin niyang isa si Lovi sa mga crush niya sa showbiz.
So there!

Kakaibang birthday treat ni Diether Ocampo
MAHIGIT ISANG libong bata ang pinasaya ng KIDS Foundation ni Diether Ocampo sa kanyang outreach program
na isinagawa sa Bacolor, Pampanga last Saturday, July 24, bilang birthday treat niya sa mga batang kapuspalad.
Namigay si Diet ng school supplies coming from Star Paper, backpacks from Pizza Hut, at mga pagkain. Si
Diet mismo ang personal na namahala ng distribution na taun-taon niyang ginagawa tuwing sasapit ang kanyang
kaarawan. Nakasama rin kami last year sa kanyang outreach program na ginanap naman sa Bulaon, Pampanga.
Bilang Kapampangan himself, malapit kay Diet ang mga Pampagueño kaya naman ito ang madalas niyang
tulungan pero marami rin siyang proyekto sa ibang lugar at hindi tumitigil sa pamimigay ng tulong.
“Lagi ko lang inaasam na sana makagawa pa rin ako ng magagandang proyekto para naman makabawi
naman ako du’n sa mga naitulong sa akin ng mga kasamahan ko sa industriya, ’di ba?
“At siyempre, para mapasaya pa rin natin ang mga kababayan natin. Na-realize ko kasi lately nung umikot
kami sa ibang bansa dahil dinala kami ng TFC, we were able to meet a lot of Filipino na nagtatrabaho sa ibang
bansa, imadyinin n’yo, ang layo ng pinagtatrabahuhan nila pero dahil sa mga napapanood nilang mga palabas
natin, mga teleserye, mga pelikula, lalo na kapag na-meet mo sila personally, parang gumagaan ang pakiramdam
nila dahil siyempre, malayo sila sa pamilya nila,” pahayag ni Diet nang makausap namin pagkatapos mananghalian
ng buong grupo sa city hall ng Bacolor.
Kapansin-pansin na hindi nakasama kay Diet ang girlfriend na si Rima Ostwani at nang tanungin ang aktor,
aniya ay sa ibang proyekto ay kasama niya ito.
“Makakasama natin sila, kasi sobrang dami ng proyekto ng KIDS Foundation, at hindi ko naman kaya itong
mag-isa, kaya lahat sila sa KIDS Foundation ay nakakasama ko, hindi lang si Rima.”
Natanong si Diet kung ano ang reaksyon niya sa napapabalitang kasalan nina Kristine Hermosa at Oyo Sotto
next year. “Siyempre, masaya naman ako para sa kanila. Sino ba naman ako para hadlangan ’yun, ’di ba? Alam
ko naman na magiging maganda ang pagsasama nila. Andito lang naman ang mga tao sa paligid natin para magwish din sa kanila ng magaganda, ’di ba?
“Marami na ang nangyari, tapos na. It’s a new chapter,” pahayag ni Diet.
Natanong si Diet kung sakali bang maimbitahan siya sa kasal nina Oyo at Kristine ay dadalo ba siya.
“Medyo busy ang schedule natin,” nangingiting sabi ni Diet pero binawi rin afterwards. “Hindi, hindi naman.
Siyempre, ayaw naman nating pangunahan ’yan, ako, I’d rather na dito na lang, ayaw naman nating makagulo.
Hayaan na natin. Kumbaga, maging masaya na lang tayo para sa kanila.”
Siya naman, kelan naman ang balak niyang pakasal ulit?
“Para namang minamadali n’yo ako,” say niyang natatawa. “Ako naman, eh, madali namang pasukin ’yan, pero
gaya ng sinabi ko, sa rami ng responsibilidad ko, bilang isa sa mga nagtaguyod ng KIDS Foundation, parang ang
dami ko pang gagawin. ’Yun naman eh, pinaplano nang maige. Pero definitely, we’ll let you know ’pag ano.”
Reregaluhan ba niya si Kristine sa wedding?
Natawa muli si Diet. “Pagpe-pray na lang natin na lalo pang gumanda ang kanilang pagsasama,” panghuling
salita pa ni Diether.
Male singer kamuntik nang pagsamtalahan
ng bading na composer
VERY USUAL occurrence sa showbiz yung pananamantala ng mga bading sa kanilang mga wards. May iba
riyan na may pagkamanyak na hindi maihiwalay ang kalibugan sa trabaho. So far, nga, countless na yung mga
kasong ganyan sa dito. Need we give samples?
Sino naman kasi ang mag-iisip na pati pala itong si Gerald Santos ay naging biktima rin.
Heto na nga, biglang lumantad si na may bitbit na di magandang experience. Sikat na rin kahit papaano si
Gerald dahil sa kanyang malamyos na boses at sa kanyang pagkapanalo bilang grand champion sa isangtalent
show. Naging regular performer siya sa SOP at sumubok rin sa pag-arte sa teleseryeng I LUV NY. Kung tutuuusin,
malakas ang pontensyal ni Gerald na sumikat nang todo; nguni’t sa hindi maunawaang dahilan ay hindi umariariba. Nandun lang siya bilang second fiddle at bihirang bigyan ng break ng GMA. Heto ngayon, lumantad si
Gerald at may pinasabog na rebelasyon sa tunay na dahilan kung bakit minabuti na niyang umalis sa GMA kahit
next year pa mapapaso ang kanyang kontrata. Aniya, biktima siya ng sexual harassment sa mga kamay ng
isang sikat na Composer/Arranger/Record Producer. Hindi nga raw siya makapaniwala dahil wala siyang napansing
‘kabaklaan’ nito. Ipinagdiinan naman ng 20 year old singing sensation na walang consummation na naganap.
Puro pagtatangka lang daw. Nagsampa na raw ng kaso ang kanyang kampo laban sa composer/arranger/record
producer at hinihintay naman ng sambayanan ang kahihinatnan nito!
And speaking of gays who are maniacs, di pala puwedeng mabiktima si Chris Kayzer. Bakit kanyo?
Iwas na iwas pala siyasa mga bading dahil aware si Chris sa tsismis na diumano ay may karelasyon siyang
bading. Pero ayon kay Chris, kaibigan lang niya ang taong itsinitsismis sa kanya. Kuwento pa ni Chris, hindi na
raw sila nagkakasama ng taong ‘yon dahil busy rin siya sa taping ng BFGF sa TV 5.
Iginiit nga ni Chris na hindi niya type makipagrelasyon sa kapwa lalake.
“I like girls. I love girls!” mariin niyang pahayag. “I know my sexuality naman and if people create issues just
to bring you down, it’s pointless. It’s gonna bring you down more.
Pero this is showbiz. Ganun talaga ang showbiz. I just want things to be right. Because God is always
watching. God doesn’t forget,” esplika niya.
Samantala, tatlong taon na raw siyang loveless, dahil gusto raw niyang mag-concentrate sa career. Natawa
lang si Chris nu’ng kumustahin namin ang kanyang sex life. Ayaw raw niyang mag-comment.

New modus in drug
peddling uncovered
BY ARMAND GALANG
PUNTO! CENTRAL LUZON • JULY 28 - 29, 2010 • WEDNESDAY - THURSDAY
SAN LEONARDO, Nueva
Ecija – Illegal drug peddlers are now trying to use
sprouting motels to shield
their transaction from authorities, police said on
Saturday.
But Chief Insp. Francisco Mateo II, chief of police here, said the new
modus operandi was
picked up by the police intelligence unit prompting
them to summon owners
and managers of these
hotels and asked them to
cooperate against drug
peddlers.
“After all, these businesses are at stake here,”
Mateo said.
He said that another
modus operandi of a group
they have been tracking
down is the use of fake
money bills as change for
“scorers” or drug users.
“Possibly, they wanted
a bigger net,” Mateo added.
Larry Antonio, 36, a
resident of Barangay Bantug Norte, Cabanatuan
City who was caught along
with another suspected
pusher, Angelito Eugenio,35, of Poblacion, San
8
Isidro Nueva Ecija, said
they bought the forged
P1,000, P500 and P100
peso bills at P20 each
somewhere in Cabanatuan City.
The two non-residents
of this town were nabbed
with fake bills, five sachet
of suspected methamphetamine hydrochloride
or shabu and a homemade
cal. 22 inside a motel
room in Barangay Castillano here last week, Mateo said.
“Unknown to them, we
have already created a
dragnet scheme for such
modus,” he added.
However, Mateo described the illegal drugs
situation in his area as “on
a street level.”
He said intelligence information showed that
drugs peddlers operating
here are mostly from other
places like in the cities of
Gapan and Cabanatuan.
Antonio and Eugenio
denied pushing shabu.
They both admit though
being users. They said
they were at the unnamed
motel to deliver shabu to
a woman who managed to
leave the place before the
lawmen arrived.
