Minsan nafifieel ko ang mga reporters/bloggers o journalists na nagsulat akala nila bobo lahat ang nagbabasa. Kagaya nitong balitang ito:
Kaso, too late na when Ruffa discovered that her U.S. visa, which was ‘stamped’ sa dati niyang passport, still bore tha name “Sharmaine (her real first name) Bektas.”
Supposedly nga naman, divorced kundi man annulled na siya from husband Yilmaz Bektas.
Kaya wala na siyang karapatang ‘gamitin’ pa ang apelyido nito.
Her two daughters still use their dad’s surname.
Elected or appointed?
This is a misleading news as far as I am concerned. http://www.gmanews.tv/story/224175/pinoy-abroad/pinay-elected-mayor-of-hercules-city-in-california
With proper motivation, Filipinos can excel in whatever field anywhere in the world. Such is the case of Myrna Lardizabal-de Vera, who was recently elected mayor of Hercules City in California.
The source of the news is the sister's blog who thought that no one can spot the intentional mistake.
Kahit naman siguro yong nasa row 4 ay magtatanong bakit kailangang magkaroon ng election kung hahawakan lang naman ang puwesto hanggang katapusan ng taon.
It was also mentioned that Allstate insurance is owned by the said Filipina. Allstate insurance is a nationwide insurance company. But a sub-agency can be formed by being an insurance agent.
This is the news that's closer to the truth.
Filipino American Myrna Lardizabal de Vera has been appointed as mayor of Hercules, California following the resignation of incumbent Mayor Joanne Ward.Pinaysaamerika
De Vera, who was recently appointed as vice mayor, will hold the mayoral seat until end of this year.
In November’s elections, she won a seat as councilor of Hercules, a city with a large Filipino community.The town’s former mayor, Ed Balico, is also a Filipino-American. He resigned from his post last year amid allegations of impropriety.
