HEADLINE  
   
 
Scientists at the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) and the UP Institute of Geological Sciences expressed fears that bas ed on the magnitude and unpredictability of the last February 6 earthquake, geo-scientists conclude that there is an active fault underneath Negros Oriental, but whose exact locations are not yet pinpointed.

As this developed, the two agencies have reiterated their warning and caution that people should no longer insist on living near "areas prone to hazards of geological and meteorological phenomena such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and typhoons."

CRITICAL REPORTING  
   
If the Corona impeachment court were to render judgment tomorrow, it will be difficult to secure sixteen votes necessary to convict the chief justice. THE PEOPLE WANT OPEN VOTING --NOT SECRET VOTING. This is all about accountability, remember? If PNOY can swear before the people, before God and Country, and in public, that if CJ Corona is removed he will not allow, and that he will oppose publicly, if the Hda. Luisita case be reversed by the remaining Supreme Court justices, now and anytime much later, and demand P10-billion more or less, in compensation from us, the taxpayers, then perhaps the anti-Corona votes will increase. Otherwise, We are just replacing one rotten apple with another if not worse. The P10-B recipient could yet be the greatest and worst thief than Marcos in history combined.

EDITORIAL  
   
 
The provincial directorate of the Philippine National Police deserves a pat on the back for insisting on fighting against injustice by standing firmly on the side of the people despite perceived political pressures. This firmness by our authorities, perceivably, has aborted a possible bloody jailbreak in the Bayawan District Jail.

PNP provincial director S/P/Supt Eduardo Carranza and his deputy for operations, P/Supt Alet Virtucio, have vigorously opposed thru their Bayawan chief of police P/CInsp Teddy Picardal the order of the deputy Bayawan city prosecutor Pedro Balbuena to order the release of a housewife posing as a visitor, who was bringing high-powered firearms into the Bayawan District Jail last February 12.
