Bacolod City – SSupt. Edgardo Ordaniel, Bacolod City Police Office acting director, said robbery charges are being readied against the two suspects in the P2.5-million robbery of a pawnshop here.

BCPO operatives have identified the two suspects through the statements of employees of a pension house where the suspects stayed before the heist of Prenda Negrense pawnshop.

C/Insp. Danilo Francisco said they presented the pictures of six suspected members of the “acetylene gang” and two were positively identified as part of the group who checked in the pension house.

Francisco said one of the suspects is about 40 years old and a miner from Kalinga Apayao province, while the other one is about 45 years old and a taxi driver from Baguio City.

“The two were arrested with four companions for attempting to rob a pawnshop in an area in Negros Occidental several years ago,” Francisco said.

Ordaniel said the pension house management suspects that their former employee could be part of the robbery as his native province is near the origins of the suspects. The employee also failed to report to duty Sunday.

The management of the pension house said the suspects checked in February 13 until February 17.

“Although the employee has denied involvement in the crime, he will still be investigated,” Francisco said.

Houston air is cleaner than Beijing

Even in just the short 4-hour layover at the Beijing Airport from Manila on my way to Houston, one can observe the obvious air pollution in Beijing City.

On a very clear day and good weather, the sun in Beijing is not visible to the naked eye even at noon time. There is always a smoke like haze or smog that blankets the entire city (Manila is a little bit better), making noontime look like six o’clock in the evening.   Read more...

AN EARLY schedule out of Bacolod prevented me from attending the “Kapihan sa SSS Bacolod” called by the AVP of Western Visayas Cluster Manolito Tagalog last Tuesday. However, news reports and radio commentaries provided enough information to comment on the agency’s latest moves. Some good news but most are disappointments. Read more...

Desiring to see and to be with God at the end of time

34TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

SOLEMNITY OF CHRIST THE KING

Gospel Reading: Matthew 25,31-46

OUR Gospel reading this Sunday confirms our faith in the glorious return of Jesus at the end of time to judge both the living and the dead. It will be the fulfilment of the promise he made on many occasions before he embraced his passion and death on the cross (cf. Mt 16:27; 24:37-44; 25:1-12; Mk 8:38; Lk 12:37-40; 21:34-36; Jn 14:1-3; etc.). On that day the Son of God will manifest all His power and glory as the King of the universe! Read more...

With the end in mind

November 22,2014 01:02 AM

By: Fr. Roy Cimagala

IT’S understandable that with the approach of the celebration of the Solemnity of Christ the King on November 23, the readings of the Masses these days bring us to consider the end of time, judgment, heaven and hell.

The Solemnity of Christ the King marks the end of the liturgical year. And we would begin another one with the onset of the season of Advent, the proximate preparation for Christmas, the birth of Christ, our Redeemer.
