That budget is now coming from my publisher and the clients Atty. Alexander Lim.

Atty. Lim, called me to a briefing session to ask me if I would accompany "PIE" and her 6 months old baby girl to the American Consulate head office in Manila to have the baby's documents filed in order to qualify her for her late father's Socail Security Benefits.
Atty. Lim is the one to shoulder all expenses for us RT food, lodging, transportation while we are there. That's pretty darn sweet of him.

Atty. Lim, knows I am the only one from the media who has taken a specail care to this incident as I have also cared about other things I have written about as well. Some times as a media man and if your heart is into it you give of personal time to something as charitable as this to lend a helping hand.
Atty. Lim, feels that the way that the cityhall is handling both "PIE" and I by always by hiding from us as well as eluding us and let's add dickering with time and being pointed to the middle man in trying to get them to assist and be responsible for their negligence for the sake of the Baby left behind and her darling and more then ever pateint mother has been in this matter.

Atty. Lim Feels strongly along with me that Mayor Dan Neri Lim is just not wanting to put this as a priority matter as it should have been the day it hapend not 12-14  days or even a month after the fact.

1.) The driver of city owned dump truck was drunk at the time of the accident.

2.) Driving on 6 months expired pro license

3.) Driving a city owned dump truck home after the party for personal use of transportation,
after dropping of sound system from a company Christmas Party.

That's where the budget is coming from! Atty. Alexander Lim.

Have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask?

The mother of the victim back in the United States emails me just about every day trying to justify why things have hapend the way they did?

I am also comforting her and passing information onto her so she knows that her grand daughter and "Pie" are in good hands and we are doing what we can to help.

She has not received any condolences from the city water dept, or the city Mayor, even though during last weeks mayor report he mentioned that he wrote a letter to the American Embassy (Late pod).

The trip is postponed Atty. lim purchased the tickets already, and we will be have the appointment on the 14th at the embassy.
Today their was a another hearing with the fiscal and it went alright.

The motorcyclist was going fast because if going slow he would of had a better chance of living.

The truck driver did hit him and the impact was hard to the truck such as mirror's and dooors and one passanger side headlamp taken out.
The case is still on going.
Sorry it has been a while to post.
The internet here is unstable this past month.
Take Care!

That's great news, yes' I know I receive daily emails from Zachery's mom as well, as I am the translater and helper with Atty. Lim on this case.

Pie is back in Mabini with her baby from Zachery and living with her parents also.

Our tickets are already purchased through my publisher and loding and daily food allowance is already sponsored by him as well.
Thursday on valentines day Pie will have her appointment with the baby at the American embassy, I will also accompany her at the appointment.
I also interveiwed PO3 Fabio Maulas two days regarding the pre limanary hearing.

It's exactly the way I knew it to be all along.

Zachery's mom is upset but she has been very cooperative indeed.

Last Saturday during the Mayor's report I Let mayor Lim have it good over the radio. To avoid from being arrested (Joking) I hung up the phone.

So many were wanting more........Mayor has never been so nice to someone when they have critisized him the way I did.
I think in the history of his reports he truly behaved after that and also his report this morning as maybe he was afraid I might have called him again telling him to do his job as a good mayor for everyone in the city.

He said just because Zachery was an American it did not mean that he has to handle this case as a priority?

Just who does he think he is when it is his city dump truck and driver who failed the right of way to Zachery and then the driver's Atty. Doni Piquero is representing the case?
What I do not get if he is terminated then why does he have a tax paid Atty.?

If Mayor does not want to take the blame then why does he have Doni Piquero the cities Atty. representing a terminated employee.

According to my interveiw with the PO3 who investigated the case he said that Piquero is trying to get Blanco to say things against the investigation.

Mark Monton never did call either Pie or I back in regards to getting any help?

PO3 also felt that Dan Lim was told  way before I had ever mentioned it to him? but is trying to white wash the sittuation. I recorded the interveiw with PO3.

Manila Bulletin has taken an interest to this story and wants me to call them so they can come and interveiw Pie and I and they have instructed me to bring all of my printed media writinings about the case.

They are also curious as to why the other pioneer newspaper's kept silent over a tourist issue?

They also think it is rude of the mayor not to have lifted a finger as well.

I am not going to correct the spelling it is late here and I am tired.

please understand, Thank You and good night everyone.

Sorry everyone, it has been a while since I updated this post.

I am back from Manila and what a grueling time it was indeed. For Cleofe's part it went well for her baby daughter who is absolutley very darling fat, and cute.

We went to Manila as schelduled for our next day embassy appointment. We brought along also the grandmother who was just paid a plane ticket to take care of the bb after the embassy appointment oh' no instead the poor bb gets dragged all over Manila and ends up getting really sick instead as the grandmother did not do as was promised to have her plane ticked paid for which was just to make sure the baby was looked after and kepf well in between appointments.
While staying at the hotel room where it was clean.
I was correct in suggesting to "PIE" that it would be better to go to the embassy and apply for American national, and to start processing paper's for the bb to receive the bennefits of her late father.

"PIE" still has some things to do for the embassy but she is working hard at getting things done fo her bb and will be heading back to Manila alone this time.

She was instructed by persons at the NSO and the American Embassy that she must only spend the monies received for the bb and nothing more.

If she abuses such priveladge is found not being able to produce the receipts for the bennefit transactions then she will forfeit all monies awarded.

As for the Manila Bulletin Newspaper in Manila "PIE" was absent up to eight hour's due to traffic and getting around for finding things to give the embassy showwing pictures that she was pregnant.
So we did not have time to meet up with the Manila Provincail editor of the Bulletin.
I am so sorry she missed a bigger oppurtuinity to have this news go out of Bohol, since it is a tourist issue.

On the other hand i am happy that i was able to give some help for her and guide her to where she neede to be guided.

I am personaly exhausted from everything and i want to spend some time and energy for myself so i can concentrate on my families graduation this coming up couple of months.

God Bless and if I have further informayoion I will compile and keep you up to date as always.

Precious, thank you so much for all your effort in ensuring that Pie and her baby will have a better future now that the baby's father is gone.  It was very noble of you to set aside your own family for awhile just so you could help them.  Way to go, Precious!  And thank you too for updating us.  It makes me feel good that Pie has money for the baby's needs.  God bless you, Precious!

Thank You, grazie and everyone for standing by and being pateint about this topic matter.

Anyways "PIE" has not talked with me since she came back from manila. Maybe she no longer needs me?

I did talk with the Sr. writer from the "PIONEER" paper here in Tagbilaran and and asked him why he never bothered to report about the incident involving the American?

he replied that if he would of written it that his publisher who is the provincail tourism chairman here would of rejected the story, just like he did when the Japanese tourist were robbed near to Sierra boulinas.

His publisher will not publish bad things that happen to tourist here in Bohol?

Maybe he does not care about the safety of tourist from outside the country coming in here?

I just do not get it informing the public is the medias jobs in order to let the community know to be more vigilantin with in different parts of the island where becoming a conveinant criminal victim is more acessisble.

Priscilla,

Thank you for assisting Pie and the family members affected by the loss of Zach. I can only hope that everything goes alright for the baby and the mother. It saddens me that the child will not grow up knowing her father or hear his voice. You have my sincere gratitude and respect for your helpful conviction.

God Bless you, and congratulations to your family members!

Truly,
Bran Lorenzo

Thanks for the update, Precious!

Regarding your talk with the Senior writer in the Pioneer paper there, your conjecture that maybe the publisher did not care about the safety of toursts coming in and out of Bohol is kind of unbelievable to me because I always see in the news about tourists being victimized.  Also, tourism has become the lifeblood (I may be wrong) of our Province and I don't think they would take for granted the contribution of the tourists to our economy there.

 I saw this documentary by a guy from the States that he felt safer in Bohol than any place in the Philippines.  He, however cautioned tourists to be careful and not be so "tempting".  In any case, you being part of the media, or that Senior writer, isn't it your obligation to the public to expose this kind of inappropriate behavior by this publisher?  Just asking, Precious. 

By the way, did you say one of your kids is graduating this March?
