Q. WHAT’S THE PURPOSE OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES? WHY DO WE NEED TO OBEY THOSE WORDS OF GOD WRITTEN IN THERE?

A.) IT’S TO MAKE US HIS TRUE CHILDREN, SO THAT WE CAN INHERIT HIS KINGDOM. IN BRIEF, THE BIBLE IS TO HELP GOD’S PLAN IN PRODUCING SONS AND DAUGHTERS FOR HIS GLORY IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. Email: jayfeliciano2@yahoo.com

I WISH to greet my primo, former (Dist.2) Councilor “ELONG” Natividad a happy 1ST anniversary-- for being now a certified columnist of this local daily. His daily column in chavacano, “SPORTSLONG” started last year when this day, March 13, a year ago, he joined Z-Today, not by accident , but what his longing passion dictated him to be one, someday. And that day is today (March 13). Welcome to the club, primo “Elong”! You’re now one of us.

LET me recount how “Elong” boldly took the step the hard way to be what he’s today-- after his unbelievable loss in the May 2016 local polls. Seeing his burning desire to join the media world in this local community that he has served for more than two decades, first as a barangay captain of Tetuan, then, as City Councilor for three consecutive terms, “Pencing” ( that’s me) acceded to his request to see boss Danny Boy (Lim), and talked it out with the latter if he could write for Z-Today—as a columnist. “No problem. You can write, right away.” That was how I gathered from our talk with boss Danny L. Then, before we could do that, we also brought his good intention to write for this local Daily (as a column writer), to our Editor-In-Chief JV Faustino, and it paid off, as well.

NOW, “Elong” has proven to be a prolific columnist of this paper, that big boss Alfred L. makes sure that “Elong” has to write not only his daily column, but to include in it the “(E)Long Life” tips that’s now gaining a lot of avid readers, especially, the elderly or the senior citizens‘s sector that has to be more health-conscious these days, if they want to live longer.

“ELONG” is blessed as he’s currently the BAP (Basketball Association of the Philippines) president—hence, he’s our pride, being the first and only Zamboangueño to have achieved such a feat. BAP has been there for more than 82 years--making it the oldest basketball association in the country. He took over the post from Sen. Antonio Trillanes (1V) whose term as BAP President was short-lived under the present Duterte administration. Trillanes is known as PRRD’s # 1 bitter political foe.

SO, good luck to you primo “Elong” as I congratulate you for marking a big milestone in your life as a bonafide column contributor of this Daily-- the most well-read local newspaper in mi ciudad de Zamboanga!

DAVAO CITY— What impresses me about DC, famous for its delicious “Dulian”, is its well-managed traffic system. You don’t see any gridlock or any of those bottlenecks that we commonly find in our major thoroughfares in our la bella. Its major roads, especially their superhighways, are superbly running sans any those wearisome traffic cops or traffic aides that we see in our la bella’s traffic intersections. They keep on moving—I mean their fast-moving motor vehicles, nay any hitches, at all. In short, they’re smoothly running, and well-disciplined in practically all aspects, as far as traffic management scheme is concerned. In our la bella? Buyung kita todo porcausa na diatom traffic de loko. Ay amboot! Na bisaya pa akin a Davao. Ke makahuya’.

AND, their Davao City International Airport is a mouth-watering sight to lo and behold! In short, maka imbidia gayot! That’s all I can say. Whew! (By Jun Feliciano) (30)
