On “Name Quarry Operators” (Published on February 11, 2021):

• Antonio Doblon

“The TFSK should seek deputization from DENR since natural resources extraction is under DENR look out. TFSK should show to the people if they have permit to carry fire arms and court should clarify if TFSK have the power to seize and impound dump trucks and quarry excavators and equipment. It seems that TFSK is just a private army of goons and AWOLS to monopolize provincial quarry operations to supply Earth fills for contractors the provincial leaders hiddenly manage. Where is the supposed bias for general welfare? It is greed and bullyings reigning in the province. No real good governance here is apprehensible. Quo Vadis Camarines Sur?”

“The question is no longer what this tf is protecting, but, who.”

• Erma Abina Zielke

“ Ildefonso Celocelo i think we all know who they‘re protecting..many are just deaf,blind and mute for personal interest..lalo pa ata lumalala..ito ba na quarrying ang dahilan na madalas pag baha? ..wala na ata pag asa na mabago ang sistema ng gov‘t sa atin. seguro may maimbento gamot sa cancer pero never sa corruption masakit pa kinukunsinti ng mga botante. Pag panahon ng election nakikita lang pera or madali madala ng pangako .. look at those who are in the govt? sad”

• Ramon Olano Jr.

“HENRY V. BRIGUERA. Good question: “can they reveal the names of those involved in the never-ending quarrying in the so called Pecuaria hills, which is very noticeable along the national road within Lanipga,Bula”? the “Chocolate Hills” of Bula has been defaced and nary a squeak can we hear from the officials of the town of Bula.”

Ini an totoo. On “Saro Sararo” (Published on February 11, 2021):

• Mar Verona

“May I just add that Sarong Banggi has already evolved into a non exclusive bicolano organization having accepted numerous non bicolano college students coming from different colleges and universities in metro manila and uplb sarong banggi during the early eighties. Thanks Mn Ernie V for walking us through down memory lane. Mabuhay Sarong Banggi.!”.

-Myself and the majority of thinking parents are ANXIOUS about the uncertainty of the outcome of this new education curriculum. This will ADD burden in this time and money. The two-year extension at the secondary level is time-consuming years and expensive especially for the poorest parent. What KIND of job AWAIT SHS graduates? We are not an INDUSTRIALIZED country like Singapore, Brunei, Malaysia, to name a few. We are LACKING in FACTORIES, Corporate manufacturers, especially in our Bicol Region. These are located in CALABARZON areas. SHS graduates will find it hard to land a job in a gov’t office. Even a casual employee in a gov’t office requires a four-year college course graduate. The most SHS graduate can apply is a utility aide, driver, janitor. A college graduate must be eligible and has a “putting kabayo” to be I gov’t office. What more if you are only an SHS graduate? According to an educational survey, most of the shs graduates will still continue to college. The gov’t SHOULD have made K-12 OPTIONAL not mandatory.
