Espino camp hits my column’s Celeste vs. Espino


Power-that-be in the pilgrim town Manaoag, Pangasinan told me that Vice Mayor Lito Arenas has moist eye for the mayoralty of the town in the 2016 polls.

He said Arenas’ vice mayoralty tandem would be Former Mayor Nap Sales.
“Big time private contractor si Lito. Si Nap cash strapped na and could not regain his old post as it would cost him an arm and leg to run for the mayorship”.
My source told me Mayor Kim Amador is a formidable force to reckon with.
“His sister, an Undersecretary at the Department of Budget & Management, has been generous in giving projects in Manaoag”.
He told me that Amador’s vice mayoralty tandem will be my friend Councilor Doods Rosario- former ally of mayoralty wannabe, my amiable pal too, Dr. Ming Rosario – a former board member.
Former Mangaldan Mayor Berex Abalos told me he will run for a seat at the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (provincial board).
“Maganda iyan, bakit kayong mga taga Mangaldan pinakamalaking bayan sa 4th (Congressional) District outside Dagupan City) wala kayong representation sa Sangguniang Panlalawigan? “ I posed.
He said he would be supported by his business patron Former Congressman Mark Cojuangco, a gubernatorial hopefull.
“Maganda iyan pag BM (board member) na si Berex, siguradong makakakuha na kami ng kontrata thru you from Governor Cojuangco,” a contractor teased


One of the men of Pangasinan Governor Amado T. Espino called me recently  belying my column he saw at the internet: “Rep. Celeste vs. Gov. Espino 2016 Congress”.

Balikbayans, foreigners hail Island Tours


 DAGUPAN CITY – “It’s my first time and I like the view out here," said Charles Roseberry of Missouri, USA.

 Roseberry  was among many foreigners who rode on the city's Island Tours where they made a close look at the beauty of the Dagupan's river after a one to two-hour leisurely ride.

 " The river is clean and its rich food is really delicious. I will definitely try it again with my family,” Roseberry quipped.

 Roseberry was with some balikbayans from  Los Angeles, San Francisco, California, Boston, Massachusetts, Daly City, and Baltimore, USA  who experienced the  Island Tours last April 23.

 Mayor Belen T. Fernandez, City Engineer Virginia Rosario and some education program supervisors accompanied the tourists as they traversed the island barangays of the city on board  t
he China and USA-themed Island Tour boats.

The tour made a stopover in a shallow sand bar in Pugaro where the group had a chance to feast on freshly-cooked local delicacies such as buttered crab, grilled tilapia, shrimp, pinakbet, fruits and lechon.

During the tour, a group of fisherman approached the tourists and showed them their bountiful catch which they eventually sold to the visitors.

 The group suggested to Mayor Belen that the city’s river can also be a good kayaking destination because it is clean and has a beautiful turquoise blue color.

Victor Manela and his daughter Caroline from Boston, Massachusetts,  referred to the island Tours as ‘more pleasant than the previous river cruise’ as they already tried the former Dawel river cruise in 2011.

Mayweather will dominate Pacquiao: ANALYSIS



Many boxing aficionados predicted that Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao’s haymakers would dominate Welterweight pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather, Jr. on May 2 (U.S dateline) mega tussle of the century.
Since a boxer is as good as his last six fights, let’s dissect if Pacquiao whirling dervish southpaw stance has still the superiority or pop to deck out Mayweather.

Manny Pacquiao versus Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
When Pacquiao fought the “Walking Punching Bag” Brandon Rios and the “Run Away Bride”, er, Boxer Cris Algieri compobox bared Pacquiao unleashes a total punch rates of 790 for Rios and 669 for Algieri in the entire 12 Rounds.
In these two lopsided match ups, Pacquiao looks superb as based on his total punches  just like during those exploding years where he TKO’d (technical knocked out) and KO’d (knocked out) the bigger but dehydrated or struggling in weight Oscar dela Hoya, Antonio Margarito, and Miguel Cotto.
When Manny however fought Juan Manuel Marquez in 2011 and 2012, he unleashes only a total punch of 578
and 256 (before he was knocked out cold at the 6th Round) or an average punches of 48 and 42 per round on their 2011 and 2013  tussles, respectively.
Why the bone lazy punches from the Filipino to the Mexican compared to his bunches of punches on Rios and Algieri?
My Answer: Because aside from their being a ploughing punching bag and Runaway Bride, er, Pug, Marquez superb counter punching skills deterred Pacquiao to whimsically shoot his punches.
He became tentative if not cautious because he became vulnerable to the 1-2 or 1-2-3 of the Mexican every time he dropped a jab or a straight.
The Mexican fought intelligently by exploiting the weaknesses of the predictable style of the Filipino
 (Pacquiao’s right jabs then plunge his chin or set his legs for inertia to trigger his left power punch) by just turning clockwise to avoid the Filipino’s left power punch.
The last time I saw Pacquiao set his predictable left power punch by feinting first two supposed right jabs were in the 6th round of their 2013 match. Marquez made him pay for that blunder as Pacquiao allowed an opening of his chin as a knocked out target of the Mexican looping right punch.
Thanks to his chopping of woods or thanks to controversial conditioning coach Angel "Momo"Heredia?
Pssst, I heard Mayweather, for the first time, chops woods too!

Department of Education (DepEd) Regional Director Teresita Velasco commended Gov. Amado T. Espino, Jr. for providing opportunity for over 500 athletes from the region who will be competing in the Palarong Pambansa at Tagum City, Davao on May 3 to 9.

Meanwhile, the DepEd regional director expressed belief that better results will be gained from the camaraderie that was strengthened among the participating athletes.

In related development, Pangasinense athletes and trainer-coaches from DepEd schools divisions in the province had started their version of in-house training as early as April 6 with athletes from other provinces in the region.

As of record, team Pangasinan remained as a consistent top performer placing as over-all 2nd runner-up in Batang Pinoy Luzon Leg for the years 2013 and 2014 in a field of more than a hundred participating Local Government Unit (LGU) delegations.

With full support of the provincial government, DepEd Pangasinan II romped off with the overall championship of R1AA 2015 with an overwhelming gold medal standing of more than half of the first runner-up’s.

Villaraza is an ally of the father of the mayor Vice President Jejomar Binay.
“Ang importante  ay mag launch din ng witnesses at ebidensiya sa judiciary, para ang Supreme Court ma-aksiyonan ito para hindi po natin sabihin na walang corruption,” said by Cayetano who was for his Presyo, Trabaho, Kita/Kabuhayan (PTK) program here.
Recently Senator Antonio Trillanes said that the temporary restraining order (TRO) on the six months preventive suspension by the Ombudsman on the younger Binay  happened after  Villaraza gave P20 million each to Justices Jose Reyes Jr. and Francisco Acosta and additional  P5 million for each of them for the preliminary injunction.
Reyes and Acosta are members of the Sixth Division of the CA. The other member is Eduardo Peralta  who voted, too, for the injunction in favour of the mayor.
Last March 11, the Office of the Ombudsman preventively suspended Mayor Binay and 15 others for six months over the alleged overpricing in the construction of the Makati City Hall Building II.

Cayetano disclosed he is interested to see the evidences given by the informants to Trillanes.
