The regional command of the Philipine National Police will handle the internal investigation of two top PNP officers: the city chief-of-police and the anti-drugs special task force head, who were relieved very recently by the provincial command for alleged grave procedural lapses in police operations.

Sr/Supt Caranza told the CHRONICLE that he submitted last Friday the entire record of the case to the regional investigating division of Region 7 command in Cebu for speedy summary investigation. Usually, the regional PNP director makes the final decision.




It is not unusual that we hear comments that we are bias in one way or the other in the handling of public issues; there was even that comment that one politician or two are financing our media outfits; and that we’re just dummies mouthing the thoughts of others.

Excuse me, we are not! Never been and never will be.

One businessman, lawyer and entrepreneur last week wanted to dissociate his disbelief and asked us, as a friend to friend: Is blank the financier of your newspaper and radio station?



It was not a change of heart that made the provincial board officially recall its earlier imprimatur for the governor to sign a P350M loan from the DBP for the central block building for indigents at the provincial hospital.

The next few days will be critical for many health, economic and population issues in our country. On Aug 28, discussions in Congress resumed on HB 4244 (The Responsible Parenthood, Reproductive Health and Population and Development — RH Bill) and their decisions will have repercussions on Philippine economic and social goals for years to come. The Philippines is seeking to achieve a lower maternal mortality rate of 5 per 1000 live births by 2016 in pursuance of the Global Millennium Development Goals (MDG). This goal is not likely to be achieved if the Bill does not pass Congress.
