Guv honors unsung heroes

The sacrifices, sweat, and blood of heroes who fought for the country 114 years ago and the unsung heroes of today must always be remembered, Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr., said yesterday at the celebration of Philippine Independence Day at the Capitol Lagoon Park in Bacolod City.

Marañon also asked all Negrenses to include President Benigno Aquino III in their prayers for him to be steadfast in his work and to have the political will to change and continue on the right path.

“If we minimize graft and corruption in the country, we will not suffer any degradation and we can improve the gap of the rich and the poor,” Marañon said. moremoremore

Senator opposing
DepEd K + 12 now


Senator Antonio Trillanes IV yesterday said he is against the implementation of DepEd’s K + 12 program and believes it should be deferred as there are many problems in the country’s educational system that need to be addressed first.

Before the program should be implemented, Trillanes said, government has to address the problems of lack of classrooms, text books, chairs, teachers and low salaries for teachers.

“Once these problems have been addressed, that is the time we should look into it. If there is still a problem, that is the time we should entertain any changes in the curriculum,” he said.moremoremore
