Re: General Admission
Don’t bet on the fight happening. Mayweather is an egoist and the last thing he wants is to have his record blotched by a loss. He’ll try everything he can blame on Pacquiao to keep the fight from happening. He will even try to put in a clause that the Pacman take an enema before the fight because the Pacman will try to be constipated to be able to take harder punches to the midsection. He’s tried everythin before, from blood test to urine testing. Why should it be any different now. No Sir, I wouldn’t count on the fight happening at all. Mayweather ain’t Black, he’s YELLOW.

Mark – as a father, husband, leader
Such a man Mark Cojuangco is, … un hombre de palabra … a caballero who keeps his word; a man whose word is as good as cash you can deposit at the bank no questions asked; a man who will stand by you when the going gets rough or when the rough gets going.
His reputation was tested under fire, when Pareng Spines sought re-election the second time against an establishment candidate, but true to his word did not flinch, did not budge an inch on the guarantee he give Pareng Spines – his wholehearted support.

Doing the right thing
AS the euphoria over Pope Francis’ visit begins to fade away, the usual skeptics and cynics among us have been quick to say “back to regular programming” – back to our accepted old habits of indifference, apathy and corruptive norms.
Is it? Perhaps so if we, as individuals don’t help “to break the bonds of injustice and oppression which give rise to glaring, and indeed scandalous, social inequalities for justice” in our respective individual lives.
Where are the CCTV cameras?
By Ermin Garcia Jr.
THE provincial board should already call for an audit on the level of compliance to the provincial ordinance requiring business establishments to install CCTV cameras in their premises. Here’s why.
Going by the experiences of cities of Metro Manila, the CCTVs not only helped the police in solving robbery and homicide cases but already are beginning to be effective deterrent to the commission of crimes in their commercial districts and in barangays. Given this, it is not farfetched to think that criminal syndicates are already moving to the provinces where the chances of their being detected and caught are practically nil. Translation: There are not many CCTV cameras to record their presence!
BRIDGING THE GAP—-Thanks to technology, the Catholic laity in Lingayen were able to watch and participate in the celebration of the Holy Eucharist Sunday afternoon, January 18, 2015 by Pope Francis at the Luneta Park some 300 kilometers away through live telecast on big screens installed inside the Epiphany of the Lord Parish Church in Lingayen. A LED van parked inside the church compound also showed the televised mass to those who could not be accommodated inside the church. The live telecast was a joint project of the provincial government, the Epiphany of the Lord Parish and ABS-CBN. (Punchphoto by Willie Lomibao)
Worldly politics is back
By Jun Velasco
“Among mortals second thoughts are wisest.” —- Euripides
IT’S back to mundane politics in Pangasinan, a week after the Papal visit.
Monitor publisher Orly Guirao and this columnist recently had a brief chat with Caloocan Congressman Egay Erice at a coffee shop along Katipunan Rd. that made a peep at the country’s presidential razzle dazzle.
If you know Cong. Egay who regularly figures on national television to dispute anti administration rhetoric, you can predict what he had to say on it — it’s P-noy’s man who will be next president! Sorry, Mayor Sammy Rosario, but that’s how Egay views the presidential equation.
