Ex-solon cleared in Mt Sto Tomas case

A municipal trial court has acquitted former Baguio Rep. Nicasio Aliping Jr., who was charged for violation of Presidential Decree 705, or the amended Forestry Reform Code, over the alleged destruction of a portion of Mount Sto. Tomas forest reserve in Poblacion, Tuba, Benguet in 2014.

TYPHOON MARING’S FURY -- Typhoon Maring, which dumped 625.3 millimeters of rainfall within 24 hours from Oct. 11 to 12 (surpassing Typhoon Ompong’s 535mm in 2018), has caused damage to government and private properties and claimed nine lives and one reported missing. It has also toppled countless trees and electric posts that caused massive blackout in Baguio, Benguet, and Mountain Province but crew members worked round-the-clock to restore electricity as soon as possible. The Cordillera Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council is still collating the amount of damage the region incurred due to one of the strongest typhoons to hit Northern Luzon in the past 15 years. -- Harley Palangchao

Vaccination for the 12 to 17 year-old group may be done in the Cordillera if the region is able to vaccinate 50 percent of its senior citizens.

Typhoon Maring has claimed nine lives, injured three individuals, rendered one missing, and displaced more than 10,000 families in the Cordillera when it struck Northern Luzon last week.

BGHMC lists 635 breakthrough cases

The Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center has recorded 635 Covid-19 breakthrough infections among its employees, but none of the cases was considered critical or has led to death.


Only the province of Apayao listed unopposed candidates for the top elective positions while the rest of incumbent congressmen, governors, and vice governors will be challenged by old and new candidates in the May 2022 elections.


FLOODED HOUSES IN BAGUIO -- Most of the submerged areas in Baguio due to flash flood caused by Typhoon Maring have already subsided, but not in this residential compound at Happy Homes Old Lucban where five houses are still affected by flash flood and the agony being experienced by affected families is unbearable. Rep. Mark Go and Baguio City District Engineering Office Officer-in-Charge Rene Zarate inspected the flooded area for engineering interventions. -- Ofelia Empian
MAYORALTY BET, 7 OTHERS FALL -- A mayoralty bet in Sabangan, Mountain Province and seven others were arrested in two separate anti-narcotics operations in Poblacion Sadanga, Mountain Province on Oct. 13 resulting in the confiscation of more than P20 million worth of marijuana in bricks and tubular form. The mayoralty bet is Sonny Kalaw, according to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency-CAR report. -- PDEA-CAR photo

FLASHFLOOD AND LANDSLIDE -- Some houses were left hanging due to a landslide at Luneta, Antamok, Itogon, while a portion of the Tawang-Ambiong Road in La Trinidad was blocked by debris due to landslide at the height of Typhoon Maring. -- Contributed photos

RAIN OR SHINE -- The inclement weather on Monday failed to dampen the spirit of personnel of the City Health Services Office, Baguio City Police Office and other volunteers from vaccinating  owners of public and private vehicles, who lined up at the Athletic Bowl for their first dose of vaccine. -- Harley Palangchao
OPERATION TULONG EXPRESS -- The SM Foundation through SM City Baguio has reached out to victims of Typhoon Maring by distributing blankets, mattresses, bottled water, and food packs in Barangays Dominican-Mirador Hill and Irisan in Baguio City and La Trinidad, Benguet.  SM Foundation represented by SM AVP NL1 Marc Jansen Pe, Mall Manager Rona Vida Correa, and SM Regional PR Manager Karren Nobres were on hand to turn over the donations. -- Harley Palangchao
GREAT FILIPINO ATHLETE -- Team Lakay Chair Mark Sangiao, along with his prized fighters such as former two-time mixed martial arts world champion Eduard Folayang, is thankful to boxing great Manny Pacquiao for being an inspiration to young and old Filipino athletes to excel in the global stage. Here, Pacquiao was there to cheer for Folayang when he first captured a world MMA belt. -- ONE photo
