NAGA CITY 9/25/17 (Bicol Standard)--Dawa na ngani pigtutuyaw asin padagos na nag-aani nin negatibong reaksyon an mga traffic light sa Naga, nagtutubod si Sangguniang Panlungsod Public Safety and Order Committee Chairman Konsehal Lito Del Rosario na kaipuhan ini sa ciudad nin Naga huli ta parte suboot ini kan progreso.

Dapat na matuod an mga motorista sa Naga kan traffic light ta bakong gabos na panahon yaon an mga miembros kan PSO para magmando kan trafico.

Lalo na kun mauran, dapat traffic light an gamiton, sabi ni Del Rosario.

Maroromdoman na kaining mga nakandaging aldaw sundo sa mga panahong ini dakul an nababaldi na mga motorista na nag-aagi sa Bagumbayan Sur, Pe├▒afrancia asin Balatas ta kun ginagamit an traffic light mas minagurubot an bulos kan trafico sa mga nasambit nang lugar dawa tapos na an kafiestahan igdi sa Naga.

Pero an simbag igdi ni Konsehal Del Rosario, yaun pa an fiesta atmosphere, dakul pa an nagpapasiring sa Basilica kaya halaba pa an traffic.

Pagkatapos daa nin mga duwang simana mawawara na daa yan.

Mientrastanto, sabi kan sarung engineer asin negosyanteng nakaulay kan Bicol Standard na habu nang magpasambit kan saiyang pangaran, saen daa na anggulo malaog an sinasabing progreso o pag-asenso, kun naaabala an mga tawo.

Kun mahuri an sarung empleyado o empleyada sa trabaho huli sa trafico, may pag-asenso daw? Kun an sarung negosyante mahuri sa saiyang appointment, yaun saen daa an progreso?

Dai minakomporme an traffic light sa kalabaan kan Magsaysay, Pe├▒afrancia asin Bagumbayan ta hayakpit an tinampo sa mga nasambit nang lugar, sabi pa kan dai na nagpabistong engineer.

This is according to Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez, who added that initiative is based on Minute Resolution No. 17-0503.

EPIC FAIL? | Drug suspect eludes arrest, takes with him P18,000 buy-bust money


NAGA CITY 9/25/17 (Bicol Standard) -- A well-planned buy-bust operation of an alleged bigtime drug dealer went up in smoke after the drug suspect was able to elude arrest, taking with him the P18,000 buy-bust money.

Christopher Mendonez, a resident of Barangay Triangulo, has long been in the watchlist of the Naga City Police Office for his alleged involvement in the drug trade in the city and nearby towns.

Mendonez, the police said, agreed to receive the buy-bust money in exchange for the drug commodity.

After receiving the money, however, he allegedly pulled out his gun, pointed the same to the poseur-buyer and immediately fled.

The reports say that the apprehending team tried to capture Mendonez, firing several gunshots towards his direction.

None of the shots, however, were able to hit the suspect.

As of this writing, the whereabouts of the suspect have not been traced.

Meantime, the police involved in the buy-bust are confronted with the problem of explaining why in spite of the planned operation, the same went down the drain. (With report from Boyet Paderes)
