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.

Sugar men vs. BIR - 2

March 03,2015 01:02 AM

By: Modesto P. Sao-noy

THERE is irony in the recent controversial withholding tax that the BIR demands under the Rules and Regulations (11) it promulgated last year. For the first time ordinary farmers are confronted with the intricacies of paying their taxes, a chore that was routine to the sugarcane planters of the past but for today’s agrarian reform beneficiaries it is confounding, daunting and formidable.  Read more...

Be both orthodox and compassionate

March 03,2015 12:56 AM

By: Fr. Roy Cimagala

THESE two are often seen to be incompatible with each other or that, at least, they don’t get along well. That’s the challenge, since they are supposed to be together. One of them cannot be without the other.

To be orthodox is usually seen as being strict, old-fashioned and traditional, narrow-minded and intolerant, quite attached or even fixated with doctrinal correctness, while to be compassionate is held as being open-minded, tolerant, adaptive, innovative and sensitive to pastoral realities, sometimes carried to the extreme.

About giving

March 03,2015 12:54 AM

By: Lucell Larawan

I HAVE pondered about the prevailing spirit of stinginess among people nowadays. When many of them give, they do it on the premise of quid pro quo.

The expectation for due remuneration makes giving look like handing a bank check for a gracious smile from the recipient: obviously, the smile for them should translate into dollars as much as possible or they would not give. Read more...
