My 2 cents opinion:

Seems to me this wowbohol is more concern about precious masscom degree than sympathizing with the boholana who just lost her husband.

How insensitive. I wonder if he is a speaker for the mayor or by the truck driver.?

That the public officials in tagbilaran didnt even care to send their condolences and visit the bereaved family is a big scandal.

To me it doesnt matter if Precious is not so well verse in the language she is writing..important thing to me is that she shows compassion and she is after in telling us what the  other media people failed to do. (kay nahadlok)

Remember the sex scandal in one of the school there? Precious was also there to help and console the poor victims where our public officials failed to do.

Kon naa pakoy daghang kwarta magpahimo ko ug TB newspaper (as one member here suggested before) unya usa sa akong i employ ana nga  magsusulat kanang parehas ni precious nga way kukahadlok mosulti sa tinood.

Precious I appreciate what you are doing.

Thumbs up!

Morag munamuna na kanang imong kapungot kay capital letters gyod tanan.
Please no need to shout...we hear you clear.

You seem to despised Precious Nepolite and you have something personal against her and you used this thread to attact her.

First off I would like to say that I really wish that the editors son would of printed inside the web site the follow up I had with Mayor Dan neri Lim last Friday even after hours.

He is a friend of mine do not get me wrong. I just keep my private and my professional separate and report about issues that need to be shared for the public to be awakened on.
I know at times I may come across shrewd or what some one refers to as a name that my mom never wants me to say *****,  (Read female dog.).
Some times media persons come out that way, I usually consider them the shakers and the movers who wake the average persons up from living in a Barbie world.
Look at Bill O'reily he is popular and he is to the direct point.
Look at Geraldo Rivera another hard hitting to the point media man who some years ago got a chair thrown at his nose for saying it out right.....ouch!?
My columns are reviewed by one of the nicest smartest and best attorney's around before they are put to print so as not to be taken as liable and slanderous to persons.

Often what my columns are about are what persons our readers bring to my attention and often i set up a realistic drama in how it can suck in an audience and let them see and feel what i see that hapens here.

I also write about my own convictions how you all do in here as Oaf's abroad and how you feel  and I do not say that your saying mean things about my place.
If thats how you you feel I respect that and I have to understand it as well.
I am not lamenting anyone for how they feel when they are away from home and living in a country that is hard to adopt at times.
We have what is known as democracy and a freedom of speech, as well as a freedom of the press (JOKEX3.)

Even tho I have been at odds with my editor but we are getting along and he is the one who told me on New Years day that one of my fellow Americans has been killed by a city dump truck and to go to the funeral home and talk to the common law wife.
When I reached the funeral home I was heart sickend that it was my American friend from our foereign circle here in Tagbilaran.

I have also discussed crab mentality in my columns here and advised readers it is better to encourage everyone and that you want them to do better always instead of not allowing anyone to be happy in life and move along in life for doing better things.

My goodness people who are so against me in here I have lived here 6 years i know what I am talking about my kids have been in both the public school systems and the private school systems here.

I have many friends in the local city government, and the provincail and the National and when they see me they wellcome me with open arm's.

I am not perfect but here I am darn to to and darn to do not and lately it is just over whelming and confussing on which way is up and which way is down?

I am often asked to encode write ups coming from organizations who want me to get the point out and across.

I actually write for two papers here in Bohol.

I have five years of school journalism from the old school, and that was many moons ago.

I am not into black mail and bribery as a media man here like most here are.


I am not paid to do write ups I do it as my love for the art's to tell it straight and how it really is.

I do not believe in stealing another one's works and encoding it to satisfy my  thoughts.

I write off the top of my head, from what is my heart, and my head.

I did notify PIA today and informed them that wrong information was being given about me and that they were being used for the reference.

My friend at the PIA office was not so happy and wanted to know what to log into so he could make a comment.

He also told me i have no problems with them and I know how he is and he is always good to me.

                                        **************************************

About the baby girl of the victim and his Fancie, we are friends and because i went beyond being a journalist and a media man I spent time getting to know the family more at the final days at the funeral home.

We are always in touch and are almost neighbors in fact. She is a sweet Boholana lady, who has been what I would have to say one of the hardest times and has been one of the strongest and youngest persons to go through what her and her baby are going through right now and it is awful.

I am also receiving emails from Zach's mother and she is ever so thankfull that there is a story such as this and persons here who are Zach's friends who care.

She wants justice for what has happend to her son.

The name of the Zach's mother is Patricia Gibson, they have forwarded me an address in the states.

His remains will be buried this coming Monday at Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens, located in Grand Rapids Michigan.
The mother also stated it will be a close immediate family gathering for his service as well.

She plans to have the story I have written that speaks of her sons goodness just before he was killed during the service.

I feel so homored that she liked the story and the good things said about her son enough to have it read out loud this Monday when he is being buried.
I am also sad for the entire situation and everyone involved.

If anyone wants to do what Lyndy has suggested it's a sweet and kind ideal.

The fiance told me yesterday that her funds remaining are not enough to get her thru the next month, and that she will have to sell her furniture that Zachary bought last month when he had come back from his work

She has no other work but has worked in the past. She loves her baby and says "Even tho Zachary is no longer here....(pause).......My baby makes me happy!"

Again Thank You, for those who have spoke so nice in here.

God Bless!

I dont want to know your reasonings or the chis-mis; all of what you are saying has absolutely nothing to do with the subject matter, which was the death of Zachary. I dont want to hear personal affairs; reasonings etc. If you have a problem with one of our members, please deal with it privately and respectfully. Please let us get back to the subject matter.

This morning I received an email reply from Michigan state, the home town of Patricia Gibson, who is the mother of the Downed tourist victim Zachary Raczok.
I want that it be known for everyone what is really going on here.
I have pasted her email here and how she feels.
Please read this and remember this is being said to a mother who's one sons life was taken away from him at such a young stage in his life.
Taken away and also mishandled negligently by local city government who has accepted that they wee negligent already.
**********************************************************************
Precious, thank you for asking about us. We as you can imagine are devastated by Zach's death. I can't believe he is gone.
I was so upset at the length of time he had to lie there waiting for an autopsy that I was told he had to have. I never requested it.
I think that if I wanted more info I could have gotten it by calling the
Dr. but did not because I just haven't been able to face it.
Most of all I am alarmed and appalled at the poor care my son received. By what I have heard, he was not even touched for 40 minutes after the accident! I also heard he was conscious, I wonder if he had been in USA if he could have been saved.
I realized he made a choice to be there and I guess that is just a consequence of that choice unfortunately.
I am so sad because I think he was just starting to settle down, he had a beautiful baby and fiancee. Because of this drunk driver, he was robbed of his life, as was his family.
Words can't express how bad his whole family feels, I just am sick over his loss. He was  my first born, he had so many dreams and aspirations. It is a tragedy.
Thank you for caring for him, although it will not bring him back.
Give Pie my love and Christine as well.
 
Patty

The whole incident is sad enough for the parties/Fam. involved and it seems that the discussion is  overwhelmed with hatred emotions towards the writer.  Please...try to show respect to the dead one, let's beheave as matured and educated as we are.

Thanks PreciousNpolite for your valued efforts! It is more than as  noteworthy.
Best regards

First off thank you to all of you who have sent condolences out to both sides of Zachary's family.

I heard from the Attorney handling the case on Zachary's side that there is already a scheduled hearing for the third week of this month some time around the 21st or the 23rd.

I will let you all know about any further up dates.

Until now the Mayor of the city has made no plans as far as contacting the victims families on either side.
The victims Fancie see me on regular basis when ever she needs a shoulder to lean on when having to cope with her common in laws sudden death.
I will do my best to keep all of you up dated any time I know there are steps being made toward justice.

Last Thursday the fiance of the victim and i went to cityhall to visit the mayor.
He was said to be in Manila.

I was given a letter that the mayor had written about the case to the American Consulate in manila explaining why he was not the one to notify them that a city owned water works dump truck and their driver had committed a fatal driver homicide, case.

Mayor wrote the letter to the consulate last January 22nd. 2008.

He also briefed the embassy on the discipline actions taken by him to the ones in charge who should of told him about the death to begin with.

In todays edition of the Bantay Balita newspaper I wrote a story demanding that the mayor help this fiance and 6 months old daughter.

The request I have written were then put into visaya and and it is made into the front page news.

I hope Mike will be able to post it when it comes out in the net in a couple of days.

Mayor was bragging to everyone on the mayor's report that he has been of assistance to both the mother in  the states and to his baby daughter her in Bohol as well as the fiance?

According to the words of Mayor it is all not true, He has not done a thing for them and I have emails from the mom proofing so.

The personal belongings are not yet delivered from the Philippines either, and in that luggage was the lap top and Rolex Watch and many other expensive things of the victim being returned back to his mother in the states.

The victims mother also thanked my friends in here for contacting them and she said she was happy that i have nice friends who care and you know who you are, its the lady with the handsome cat and the parakeet...he he he he!!!

Okay thats the up to date so far and the first trial will be on the 23rd, and the victims Atty, is Atty. Lim.

I am not going to spell check this as i have been up all night thinking of the strategy i will use to approach mayor with the victim and the baby and get those requests that i have asked for.
