      Teachers unpaid thier poll duties    

Here’s another bungle made by the Comelec in there election supervision: the teachers rendering election dutes all over the country could not yet be paid because their names and that of their team were jumbled in the computer with interchanged honoraria payables. This runs to millions of pesos nationwide. Comelec said the teacher will be paid next week.

After giving all their best to achieve a clean, honest, accurate, meaningful, credible and peaceful elections, its time for the board of election inspectors (BEIs) and other poll workers to claim what is due them.

Sad to say, the cash cards system has “malfunctioned” similar to what had happened to a few of the Vote Counting Machines (VCMs).

This was confirmed by Comelec Region 7 regional director Atty Nick Mendros during the Comelec exit conference and debriefing held at the Negros Oriental Convention Center in the province on Friday.

Atty Mendros said he has asked permission from Comelec central office to speak his mind on the concern...



Silliman University chairman of the Board of Trustees Prof. Leonor Magtolis Briones as the new secretary of education under the Duterte administration.

We are proud to have one true blue Negrense (from Guihulngan) who is now a member of the official family of the new president. Prof Lingling Briones is known for her advocacies in transparency as the former national treasurer of the Phlippines under the Estrada administration.

Her elevaton to the top education portfolio of the presidents cabinet indicates the quality of education which this university town of Dumaguete produces.



The proof of the pudding is in the eating, so the old cliché goes. But the saying is made fresh and new by July 1 for newly elected officials who will prove to the people that what they were espousing, promising and advocating will become true to life. “Words will be made flesh,” to quote the Holy Book to make an earthly parallel.

Led by no less than the ex-presumptive, now soon to be full fledge president Rodrigo Duterte, the Davao maverick turned head of State, will now have to show and prove to the Nation that he will be true to his words about deadlines in crime and drug trafficking stoppage and the rest of what should no longer be rhetorics but real time-realities.


You can expect peace
in the spiritual realm but not in the physical realm.
