Sorsogon City gets ready for formal declaration as drug cleared

Sorsogon City gets ready for formal declaration as 'drug cleared' Vox Bikol Tue, 03/07/2017 - 04:40 SORSOGON CITY, March 2 (PNA) —- This city will be declared “cleared” of illegal drugs in formal ceremonies to be attended by Chief Supt. Melvin Ramon Buenafe, director of Police Regional Office in Bicol (PRO5), at the Bibincahan Gymnasium here Friday. Sorsogon City is the last local government unit to be declared as drug-cleared in the province of Sorsogon since the intensified anti-narcotics drive of the government that was aimed at both high-profile and street level drug personalities started in July 2016. The Sorsogon City Anti-Drug Abuse Council (SCADAC) came up with the declaration as contained in its resolution No 1-2017 dated February 27. According to the resolution, all of the city’s 64 barangays have been declared as “drug-cleared” villages based on the declaration of their respective barangay councils and Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Councils (BADAC). It also stated that the intensified operation of “Project Double Barrel” resulted in the total eradication of the presence of drug personalities and illegal drug activities in the city of Sorsogon.” City Mayor Sally Lee lauded the declaration as she attributed it to the relentless efforts of the community stakeholders, especially the Philippine National Police, barangay officials, schools, women, senior citizens, students and youth organizations. In January, PRO5 cited the Sorsogon Provincial Police Office (PPO) headed by Senior Supt. Ronaldo Cabral for recording the lowest crime rate among the six PPOs and one city PPO in Bicol for 2016. Cabral attributed this to the various community relations program of the PPO that proved effective in engaging various sectors in curbing the drug scourge that has been seen as contributing to the high incidence of crime in the province. Lee said the government remains steadfast in its commitment to maintain the city free from the perils of illegal drugs. “We will continue all programs and activities that have brought about this declaration even as we assure those who have surrendered that the city government will assist them in the best ways possible,” she stressed. PRO5 officials said their assessment of the performance of the PPOs in Bicol with regards to the government’s drug war uses the term “drug clear” as only the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) has the authority to declare a local government unit as drug-free. On Monday, the PNP is expected to reassume its leading role in the illegal drug campaign after the PNP was temporarily suspended from administering “Operation Tokhang” in the wake of a controversy that hounded the killing of a Korean businessman last month. The suspension prompted the government to hand over to PDEA the major role in the campaign with the PNP taking a supporting role. (PNA) LAP/GVR/BQL/CBD.....»»

Terry Collins resigns as manager of New York Mets

em>By Kevin Cooney, Associated Press /em> PHILADELPHIA (AP) — New York Mets manager Terry Collins resigned Sunday after seven seasons and said he will take a position in the team's front office. 'It's been a blast, but it's time,' the 68-year-old Collins said. Collins announced he was stepping down after the Mets lost to Philadelphia 11-0, finishing a 70-92 season that began with great expectations but was quickly derailed by injuries. 'It's one of those years you want to forget, and I will. Tomorrow,' he said, saying this season left a 'sour taste.' The Mets were 551-583 overall under Collins, reaching the World Series in 2015 and earning an NL wild-card spot in 2016. Collins was the oldest manager in the majors and recently said he had no plans to retire after this season. His two-year contract was set to expire after this year. He managed the Mets longer than anyone else. Collins has managed 13 years in the majors with Houston, the Angels and Mets, going a combined 995-1,017. 'I did it a long time,' he said. When Collins and Phillies manager Pete Mackanin exchanged lineup cards at home plate, the two men hugged before walking away. It was announced on Friday that Mackanin would not return as Phillies manager in 2018. Instead, he will transfer to a front office role as senior adviser to general manager Matt Klentak. A couple fans at Citizens Bank Park held up signs thanking Collins for his efforts. The New York Post reported last Wednesday that longtime Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen, who predates even Collins on the staff, is likely to be let go. And in the past few days, things turned particularly ugly amid anonymously sourced reports of sniping by players and friction between Collins and the front office — partly over how he's handled the bullpen. 'Terry's a great person. He's helped me out a lot through my baseball career,' catcher Travis d'Arnaud said after the Mets' home finale Wednesday. 'He's been a tremendous help for me. He's an amazing person. Fiery person, and definitely molds a lot of players and brings out the fire in a lot of guys.' Collins ranks second to Davey Johnson (595) among Mets managers in wins. General manager Sandy Alderson is finishing up a three-year contract but is widely expected to return even though the injury-ravaged Mets dropped out of the NL East race early this year. Two years ago, Alderson and Collins directed New York to its first pennant since 2000. Alderson was diagnosed with cancer that fall and had surgery, but he kept working full-time while undergoing chemotherapy treatments. He turns 70 in November. After beginning 2017 with World Series ambitions that certainly seemed legitimate, New York instead slogged through its worst season this decade. By mid-to-late August, Alderson had traded away a string of veteran regulars who can become free agents in the offseason, including Jay Bruce, Lucas Duda, Curtis Granderson, Addison Reed and Neil Walker. All were shipped to playoff contenders in exchange for minor leaguers. Alderson also acquired reliever AJ Ramos from Miami for two prospects just days before the July 31 trade deadline. In total, the moves shaved $10.3 million off New York's $156 million opening day payroll. ___ em>AP Baseball Writer Mike Fitzpatrick contributed to this report. /em>   .....»»
