A retired public school teacher shot his wife dead after a heated argument on Friday afternoon. A city chief believes that some personnel of PNP Highway Patrol Group are involved in carnapping operations in the province. A member of a fraternity was arrested while celebrating their founding anniversary for possessing a .22 caliber revolver. A shopping center lost an estimated three hundred thousand pesos in cash to still unidentified burglars yesterday. A collector of a financing firm lost thirty thousand pesos to motorcycle-riding robbers at around two in the afternoon. A man was arrested for stealing a seven-meter telephone cable believed to be cut from the posts. I know these incidents are not new to us and these happens almost everyday now. I found these news while reading a local newspaper here today. With the continuing crisis in oil products and the high rising prices of all the basic commodities, poverty continues and so as hunger. Can we expect a better future for our family? Can we blame those people for doing criminal acts? CAN YOU STILL KEEP ON SMILING? = NEIL (red star 88 @ 1483)
