Gov. Kris Aquino for Tarlac in 2013?


LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “…The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven…” (Hebrews 1:3, the Holy Bible).

GOVERNOR KRIS AQUINO IN TARLAC IN 2013? I was with my classmates from the 1973 high school batch of the Dr. Nicanor Reyes Memorial Colleges Monday night (April 09, 2012) in a dinner hosted by Dr. Rowena Abubo Bautista and her husband, Dr. Jesse Bautista, and the talk of the night was that presidential sister, Kris Aquino, will run as Tarlac governor in 2013.
According to  batch member Yolanda Flores Wainwright, barangay captain of Bgy. Canan, Paniqui, Tarlac, the Cojuangcos have already made it known that they will unite behind Kris, with incumbent Gov. Victor Yap giving way and running as a congressman instead. Well, a “Governor Kris Aquino” should be able to channel more government funds to Tarlac.

WELCOME BACK, DO AND PRECY: By the way, the dinner at the palatial house of the Bautistas in Paniqui was meant to welcome batch mates (and now spouses from Australia) Rolando Datu and Pacita Lobo Datu, who planed in during the Holy Week for a very brief visit. Welcome back Do and Precy, and may you have more visits here.

ILOILO’S DEFENSOR SURE TO WIN ANEW IN 2013: More on politics: this early, Iloilo Gov. Arthur Defensor is saying he will trounce and handily defeat his predecessor, former Iloilo Gov. Niel Tupas Sr., father and namesake of Iloilo Rep. Niel Tupas Jr., the chief prosecutor in the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona.

The reason? Defensor continues to enjoy the support of more than a majority of the Ilongos, including the commitment and unwavering loyalty of the 36 of the 43 mayors of Iloilo. Besides, he already defeated a Tupas in 2010, former Barotac Viejo Mayor Raul Tupas, Niel Sr.’s son.

THE FIGHT GOES ON: Bombo Radyo Davao broadcaster and incumbent Davao City barangay captain Aldion Layao, 34, joined the rank of media practitioners whose killers remain unidentified despite intense police investigation.

Layao’s death followed the pattern employed by most journalist-killers---shot at close range by motorcycle riding men, evidently hired by disgruntled foes. His death, for sure, will not stop other mediamen---and barangay captains---from fighting on. For the killers and their patrons, however, hell is now waiting for all of them!

God cannot be mocked and a man reaps what he sows, as the Bible says in Galatians 6:7. All of us know that among God’s Ten Commandments, enshrined under Exodus 20:13, says: “You shall not murder”.

CAN GOV’T SUBSIDY BE JUSTIFIED? If there is already a government commitment that requires Mindanao electric cooperatives to buy power from private power generators at a cost of P14 per kilowatt hour even if this means that the government will shoulder P9 of this P14 per kwh price, what is there to tackle during the Mindanao power summit set this week, Energy Secretary Rene Almendras? And can the P9 per kwh government subsidy be justified?
