by UNTV News   |   Posted on Wednesday, February 7th, 2018

MANILA, Philippines — Cavite is known to be the historical capital of the Philippines because it is the birthplace of Philippine independence.

Another history is being made in the province as Caviteña Hacel Bartolome continues her journey to be the first Wishcovery Grand Champion.

Caviteños gave a warm welcome to Wishful grand finalist Hacel in her hometown concert, Monday, in Bacoor Strike Gymnasium.

“Syempre, si Hacel may puso and then born to be a singer. Golden voice of Cavite!” said members of Acers, Hacel’s fans club.

(Of course, Hacel has a heart and is born to be a singer, golden voice of Cavite!)

“Lodi ng buong Cavite. Iyan kasi nga iyong boses niya talagang mapapa-ahh, mapapa-ganun ka talaga,” they added.

(She’s Cavite’s idol because her voice is unique.)

Hacel said the love she received from her kababayans gives her more reason to fight for the win in the grand finals.

“Sobrang saya po tsaka sobrang di ko talaga inasahan. Ang daming tao. Ang daming sumupport po,” said Hacel.

(I’m so happy and I really did not expect it. There are a lot of people and supporters. I think I need to win. I need to push. Apart from giving my best, I need to fight. We will fight in the grand finals.)

“Parang kailangan ko nang manalo. Kailangan ko nang ma-push. Kailangan ko nang talagang bukod sa ibigay iyong best ay kailangan ko na pong lumaban. Lalaban po tayo sa grand finals,” she added.

Some of Cavite’s homegrown artists and bands were also present in the event including Jireh Lim, Shantidope and Plethora.

Meanwhile, as part of Wish 107.5’s thanksgiving for its 2-million Youtube subscriber-milestone, the station also granted wishes of Caviteños.

These include Gervacio Titong’s wish for a wheelchair for her mother.

“Pagsulat ko doon, naiyak ako talaga. Sobra talagang aking ano kay Mama. Naawa ako,” said beneficiary Gervacio Titong.

“Pwede ko na siyang ilabas-labas, ipasyal-pasyal kasi itong malaking bagay sa kanya kasi mahirap din pong buhatin siya kasi mabigat. Pasalamat talaga ako sa [Wish] 107.5 na binigyan ako ng oportunidad … ng wheelchair po,” he said.

(When I wrote it, I was really crying. I really pity my mother. Now, I can bring her outside the house. This is a big help for her because she is also hard to carry because she is heavy. I really want to thank [Wish] 107.5 for giving me an opportunity to have a wheelchair.)

Wish FM also fulfilled Renan Perez’s aspiration to watch Morissette’s upcoming first major solo concert.

“Nagustuhan ko talaga iyong singing prowess niya. Isa siya sa naa-admire ako sa mga kumakanta lalo na siya, bago pa kaso siya eh. Nakikita ko na talaga na magaling talaga siya. Ang Wish ko po sa Wish 107.5, bale more power and good luck sa lahat ng mga projects nila,” said the wisher.

(I really admire her singing prowess. She’s one of the artists that I really admire especially that she is new in the industry. I can really see that she is great. My wish for Wish 107.5 is more power and good luck to all their projects.)

Meanwhile, watch out the Wishcovery team as it tours to Carmela Ariola’s hometown—Batangas – next. – Leslie Longboen | UNTV News & Rescue

Police eyes politics as motive behind Vice Mayor Alex Lubigan’s slay

Fatal ambush of Trece Martires, Cavite Vice Mayor Alex Lubigan on July 7, 2018.



CAVITE, Philippines – Authorities are looking into politics as the reason for the assassination of Trece Martires Vice Mayor Alexander Lubigan on Saturday (July 7).

According to Cavite Police, the vice mayor announced his intention to seek election to a higher position the day before he was killed.

“Matatapos na ang term niya as vice mayor so isang option niya ay tumakbo sa mas mataas na posisyon which is pagiging mayor. In fact sinasabi  ng kaibigan din niya na mag-signify na siya ng intention to run for higher office,” said PSSupt. William Segun, Cavite Provincial Director.

This development prompted Police Region 4A Director PCSupt. Edward Carranza to order an investigation and hear the side of Mayor Melandres De Sagun on the case. Carranza, however, clarified that Mayor De Sagun is not among the persons of interest in the crime.

“Sa normal na krimen na ganyan, we get all the information from sources so since he is a public official we will also get some information from incumbent city mayor of Trece Martires,” Carranza explained.

Following the deaths of Tanuan City Mayor Antonio Halili and Trece Martires Vice Mayor Alex Lubigan, the Philippine National Police (PNP) is now checking on other local officials in Region 4A who are also receiving threats as directed by PNP Chief Oscar Albayalde.

“We will be reviewing and I will be tasking my provincial director kung ano ba ang mga present threat ng mga local chief executive sa buong Calabarzon…iyong mga places na dinadaanan ng ating mga chief executives. ayaw na kasi nating maulit ito. There be intense presence of the police and we will be also asking my PD (Police Directors) to review their checkpoints,” Carranza said.

Authorities are also examining whether both local officials were killed using the same firearm as the bullet shells found in the crime scenes were of similar caliber. – Benedict Samson / Marje Pelayo
