What exactly does the Visayan DAILY STAR deliver? I see a couple of things. First is the news, or the information that keeps people aware. The second is something that is not seen, credibility. For 30 years, your reporters and editors have worked so hard to keep your newspaper a worthy product that delivers accurate information and credibility, and with a common vision of uniting our people. May it continue to spend a great deal of time and effort in making its stories an overall reflection of truth and objectivity always. Congratulations.
BACOLOD REP. ANTHONY GOLEZ
One declarative I can utter - the Visayan DAILY STAR has withstood the test of time undiminished, uncompromised. It’s old enough to know what matters yet young enough to go round the block a couple more laps. It has been one journey, the Maker favors you with more. Deo Favante Festina lente. (God’s Favors, make Haste slowly).

I congratulate the Visayan DAILY STAR on your 30th anniversary. The VDS is already an institution in Bacolod and in the entire province of Negros. So I would like to congratulate the Board of Directors, the columnists, the writers and staff for another milestone in the service of Bacolod City. The VDS has been a source of balanced reporting and a source of information for Bacolodnons but even my friends abroad always read about Bacolod City through the VDS website. So this is another accomplishment for the VDS and we are very proud that an institution in journalism in the Visayas is from Bacolod. So congratulations and we wish you more years of success.
