Gov “Nanay Baby” Pineda – Pampanga’s 24/7 Wonder Woman
She may not be a tall lady, or a member of the academic and educated forces and elite strata of the society…but no doubt she is doing what no ordinary politicians can do. The day-to-day activities she indulges for the benefit of her constituents and the people among the barrios are awesome and something for Ripley.
Simply stated, people from the barrios and different barangays called her “Nanay Baby.” A title which comes from the hearts of people who feel too close for comfort and assistance from a governor who came from the grassroots like them. This must be the guiding force which gives strength and stamina to Governor “Nanay Baby” Pineda to go from one barrio to another; to attend seminars on economic and self-help developments; reaching out to the different police officers and peace keepers on each barangay, bringing food supplies, medicine and medical team on those whom she feels are in urgent need of the life-saving treatment badly needed in far-away and hard-to-reach places.
Lately, she distributed barangay-tanods uniforms, motorcycles and tricycles needed for police officers for immediate and fast response when necessary. She gathered her mayors’ league and asked them to look into the immediate needs of their towns. It is not simply looking; but something which can be easily done so that the people will not feel taken for granted.
Nanay Baby does not speak in complicated terms or languages. She simply talks from the heart so that she can communicate her real concern to the people.
Her workforce, which is composed mostly of female members of the Sanggunian, are known to have quartered themselves in the governor’s house just so to give immediate assistance to the governor in her daily hectic activities visiting the different barangays.
PDCC Commissioner Rodel Lumanog was amazed by the charisma of the lady governor during his last Pampanga visit. Ditto with Jess Espanola, an Emmy awardee and native of Lubao, who said the governor has an open following which is “unbelievable but true.” She is not afraid to go even to the farthest barrio.
The development of tourism in the province and the introduction of new technologies in farming and cottage and home industries are unbelievable. To prepare the province to keep up with modern technologies, she offers scholarships among deserving students. To those who have emotional problems, she gives comfort, to those who offended her, she gives understanding. Remember that lady mayor from Mindanao who punched a policeman simply for enforcing the law? Sa Pampanga, wala yan.
In the history of Pampanga, there were many notables in the past. People that made records worthy of writing.
Rejects Among Cabalens
Several decades ago, a Kapampangan group, then composed of professionals and is a who is who among the cabalens, was divided by a certain “Caligula” and his “ikabud bubuwits.’ Caligula, called the “virus” among the Mekenis, was a bad word in the ears of the founder whose blood pressure shoots up every time you mentioned the name of Caligula. The original Kapampangan group gradually disappeared; destroyed by the termites or “kulangots” of Caligula.
Today, Caligula continues to wreck havoc dividing united Kapampangan town associations. Those who refused to be under his “punso,” a hideout of tiyanaks and unanos silently feel the attacks of the “kulangots” as ordered by Caligula. Outside he looks harmless but in the real world he is a terrorist working like “anay” destroying the foundation of any “agumans.” The last time we heard from the grapevine was Caligula’s directive of not attending the fiesta of a city close to San Fernando.
BTW a foundation connected to Caligula and his members will soon be the focus of Pinoywatchdog.com because of an alleged “shaffling of funds” between the foundation and Kalayaan group and a fund-raising activity he started illegally.
The personality contrast between Gov “Nanay Baby” Pineda and Caligula is heart-breaking. Caligula who refused the personal invitation extended by the Governor to attend PDCC last December, has no place in a civilized society. Kanya dapat sa “punso” ka na lang.
Cerritos Restaurant Makes Good Sales on PWD Delivery Day
The owner of a Cerritos restaurant called to say that his customers who waited every delivery day in his restaurant were “literally in panic” when we skipped delivery in his place. People waiting for our issues and following the exposes don’t want to miss the series. The owner noticed increase in sales, especially coffee and doughnuts as our readers stayed in his business to read. He said he put a big signboard and slogan “Bili ng kape, diyaryo ay libre.”
When he read the thefts of our PWD he said he will see to it that our suspect will be caught in the act one time. As it is, he always asked for the restocking of PWD.
Speaking of suspects, we know already the identity of the guy who made Parody on the internet branding our staffs as “scams and scammers.” He also plagiarized WB masthead logo. His bosses must be giving him good money because everything he does is un-Masonic. Pera lang iyan bay. May sinumpaan tayo sa loob. Ayaw kung mawala ang tiwala ko sa iyo. Sa ngayon, bistado ka na. Gamitin mo ang mga mata mo sa pagtingin sa katotohanan.
Duon sa mga nagpapadala sa akin ng mga blind letters, kung wala kayong kinalaman sa mga isinusulat namin huwag na kayong makisawsaw.
Ayaw naming patulan ang mga pekeng kolumnistang walang alam na sulatin kung hindi mga “praise releases.”
