`WINTER IN THE HIGHLANDS’ -- A farmer attends to his farm as early morning frost covered portions of vegetables in Paoay, Atok, Benguet following a continued drop in temperature to below 10 °C triggered by the cold front from China and Siberia. Contrary to reports that farmers incurred huge losses due to frost, they have adopted measures to counter the impact of cold temperature to maintain good yield all year round. -- Harley Palangchao
Winter in Benguet,
as Baguio temp hits 7.3 ° C

Responding to a call for help aired through  a local television channel, inmates of the Baguio city jail raised P6,598 which they turned over last Valentine’s Day to the family of a young girl in need.

ATOK, Benguet – ‘Winter is coming.’ Getting up early from bed was a great challenge among vegetable farmers here last week as temperature was colder by two to four degrees Celsius from the mercury level recorded in Baguio.

Two of three suspects in the burning of the two trucks of Philex Mining Corporation have posted bail last week after being detained for two days at Camp Bado Dangwa, regional headquarters of the Cordillera police command.


A master plan for Baguio’s tourism industry will not be paper alone.
