HAVE BAT WILL STRIKE - Juanito V. Jabat   (The Freeman) - August 4, 2015 - 10:00am

Experts say the economy is seen to perform better in 2016. Still the effect or carryover of Daang Matuwid?

It says here that the peso is likely to weaken vs. the dollar in Q3, meaning third quarter of the year. Bad. But some OFW folks at home don't mind much. That means more peso bills in their wallets.

A sari-sari store owner in Punta Princesa said the econ experts may not like the peso to plunge against the mighty dollar but she said a low-rated peso means more sacks of rice in the OFW families' home.

PhilSTAR columnist Wilson Lee Flores says there are seven lessons -- actually, reasons - why the well-admired Manny V. Pangilinan is not running for President. Lots of people who know and admire MVP are happy that their idol has not fallen into the temptation for him to make the plunge.

One MVP idol said to me: "No need for MVP to be President and help build the nation. He has been a nation builder, more than those elected to do the job."

***

The same MVP idol added: "Dinhi sa ato, bisan unsa pa ka maayo sa usa ka tawo nga mosuway og dagan pagka-Presidente kay gustong motabang sa nasud gub-on ang dugay'ng tinipigan nga dungog niadtong maong tawo.

Before I forget, I would like to congratulate Joe Navarro, my barangay Captain (Punta Princesa) and Mrs. Clemen, my barangay's first lady on their 50th wedding anniversary. I share Joe's and Clemen's happiness on this occasion. In this our time seldom do we see couples (husband and wife) reaching this far -- 50 years.

It says there that the government has vowed action on Yolanda rebuilding after so much criticism. See? It's always necessary to keep track on what's happening in the country and to speak out if something is wrong like what Malou Mangahas and Luchi Cruz Valdes do in their respective tv programs.
