  Multiple-venue festival. For the first time, Buglasan Festival of Festivals was dispersed in different venues due to what the governor describes as “will of the people,” but never politics. But it’s healthy, giving peope a free choice. That’s the essence of democracy.  
 


   
HEADLINE  
   
 

The Negros Oriental Provincial Police Office (NOPPO) is considering four areas in the province as hotspots in the forthcoming local and national elections in May 13, 2013.

Philippine National Police provincial director PSrSupt Edward Carranza disclosed that the four areas are all in the first district of Negros Oriental, two of which are the municipality of Tayasan and Guihulngan City.

He said, in Guihulngan, the mayoralty race is hotly contested by former three-termer congressman Atty. Jacinto Jing Paras and incumbent Vice-Mayor Guido Reyes, son of last-termer Mayor Ernesto Reyes.

CRITICAL REPORTING  
   

After decades of talking and in-fightings, after 34 failed meetings under three (3) presidents, the Moro National Liberation Front, together with the Government of the Philippines (GP), have mutually laid down yet another, and we hope, the final, roadmap to peace.

Let it be emphasized that what was signed in Malacañang was an agreement to further talks. In short, a road map to peace was agreed, a mutual direction. Then both MNLF and GP will hold hands to seek the elusive peace, which has cost hundreds of thousand of lives, both Muslims and non-Muslims, because of still unresolved political issues.

EDITORIAL  
   
 

Why should people oppose higher taxes on cigarettes when the purpose is to discourage smokers to ruin some more their health by smoking? What we cannot understand is why is it so bad to increase sin taxes when the purpose is to avoid buying a sinful of diseases caused by cigarette smoking.

Of course, this is a free country. You cannot really prohibit the act of smoking because it is against human rights to prohibit so. Ultimately, the individual is the judge. I have quit smoking 6 years ago, smoking ten sticks a day for over 30 years, nebulizing something harmful. I cannot imagine that now.
