Well, like that famous one-liner blurted out by my idol Michael Jordan when he decided to return to professional basketball after a brief vacation, I say it now, too: I’M BACK.
Yes, I’ve been out for a while. Almost a year, in fact. No excuses. I just found a renewed vigor to start blogging all over again. I give thanks to you, my readers who gave me this newly-found inspiration to do what I used to do and what I love doing.
Let’s get it on.
Use of P750-M windfall angers N. Vizcaya folk
BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya–Local officials and civil society leaders here have expressed outrage over the alleged extravagant spending of the P750 million which the provincial government collected last year from the foreign owners of a multi-million irrigation and power project in upland Alfonso Castañeda town.
This developed following reports that town officials of Alfonso Castañeda purchased a fleet of sports utility vehicles from the town’s share of real property taxes worth P337.5 million last year.
“This is a total disgrace to these local officials who are now spending the money at will for their own benefit and enjoyment,” said human rights lawyer Ernesto Salunat.
