THERE were 3,000 policemen who graduated from Moral Values Seminar across the country. We hope that these “new” policemen will be real protectors of the people and not oppressors. They should be independent and true to their sworn duties and never engage on any political exercise or just bodyguards of powerful political leaders.

First Gentleman Mike Arroyo filed libel charges against Congressman Cayetano for divulging the alleged First Family dollar foreign account in a certain bank abroad. Former 1st lady Imelda Marcos never did this against their enemies before. Well, the Arroyos’ are different, maybe wiser than the Marcoses to protect their honor and reputation. First Gentleman Mike Arroyo filed another charges with the court to disbar Congressman Cayetano,  the brother of Senator Pia Cayetano for violation of  the Code of Conduct as a lawyer  according to him (Mike Arroyo).

A dengue outbreak was declared in Morong, Rizal with 706 cases and 30 deaths of children. This is a warning to the people of Bukidnon, which had high cases of dengue before. Families should protect their children from dengue-carrying mosquitoes by observing the prevention measures given by DOH, hospitals and health centers. Cleanliness of surroundings is one and bringing their children immediately to the nearest hospital at the first sign of high fever for early detection and medication.

BUSECO informed the public that the three-hour blackout in

Malaybalay
City affecting barangays from Aglayan to Dalwangan on Sept. 12 early night was due to a big  Ipil-ipil tree that fell down hitting the primary line of BUSECO. Power was restored at 8:35 pm. Good job BUSECO!

Another blackout was announced on Sept. 16 (Saturday), from 7:00am to 4:00pm because of TRANSCO’s schedule of clearing the electric lines of big trees which are  hazardous to their primary lines. We should know this for the information of the people of Bukidnon that TRANSCO, BUSECO and FIBECO are doing this for the good of the general public.

Another militant leader killed by motorcycle-riding killers. The military denies involvement in the killing. The killing of militant leaders in various places in the country remain mysterious… Who are the culprits of these unsolved killings, without regards to the values of human lives? What is happening to our country today? Are we becoming a Gestapo nation?

The XXX Tulfo brothers who are known as anti-illegal drugs and other-evil-works fighters in the community where charged by powerful personalities of libel. Their works are dangerous but they are also veterans and brave reporters. They are doing what is good for our people and community. They are used to libel ever since. They are press freedom  fighter – journalists too.

About 60 families were reduced to extreme poverty by a fire that razed their houses to ashes at Kalambagohan, Brgy. 15, Cagayan de Oro City. Property damage is estimated to P1M. Police said this is the biggest fire in CDO this year and another headache for Mayor Dongcoy Emano, where and how to relocate these families aside from providing them with basic things such as food, clothing, medicines, etc. for their survival until they can stand again to support their families. Providing them with a job is another burden of  the City Government of CDO.

It has various swimming pools for adults, children and family for relaxation. Visit and enjoy yourself swimming at this newest and fresh Cagayan Resort.
