EDITORIAL | What BLISTT Development?

Baguio City is over developed as it had been locally and internationally pointed out by scientists especially immediately after the “killer earthquake”. Presently it needs a place to dispose its garbage, its sewage, its “overflowing migrant population”, it needs more water, more energy and power, more food, more market for its imported surplus, more land to sell, etc. Just everything more as a result of the fast creeping urbanization. But not at its neighbors’ expense(?)

Unite for a free and prosperous 2019 for all

EDITORIAL | An unusual presidential calm

While most Filipinos, Christian or not, can agree and can unite on his urging that, “As we take part in this (Christmas) joyous occasion,” to “contemplate on the worth of the lessons that we can learn from the narrative of Christ’s birth...” there remains the question of whether the president understands the real meaning of “compassion, kindness, and reconciliation.”

Be among those Journalists who strive to ‘Serve The People.’

EDITORIAL | Justice blind or “blindfolded”?

Concerned citizens also see the Sandigan Bayan’s recent ruling on the case vs. Madam Marcos, as described by Representative Antonio Tinio, “The decision is too little, too late, or that much of the massive ill-gotten wealth remains in the hands of the Marcoses. Nevertheless, a guilty verdict is a guilty verdict. . . . It gives us a taste of justice.

EDITORIAL | Are we a democracy or a dictatorship?

The country first before any self serving interests to enrich individuals or business conglomerates against supporting public interests for health, education, safety, food security, etc. Let us go for governance for the people, of the people and by the people - democracy, not for another local or national or wanna be tyrant, or dictatorship.

EDITORIAL | Here comes the circus
