MY warmest greetings of solidarity to SUN.STAR CAGAYAN DE ORO!
The Cagayan de Oro Press Club, which is now gearing on its 63rd year, can bear witness to the unfolding of events in Cagayan de Oro, in Mindanao and the rest of the country and the world.
Its members, the media practitioners in various newspapers, radio and television stations have always been in the forefront in the struggle, ever vigilant in keeping press freedom alive in this part of the country.
They put their lives in the line under a dictatorial regime, face the risks during natural calamities, and brave the threats from those who desire to silence them.
Most, if not all of us, have had our baptism of fire.
It is our fervent hope that SUN.STAR CAGAYAN DE ORO will continue and persevere in pursuing its avowed commitment to the public, primarily as a reliable source of unbiased and timely reports on day-to-day events and for incisive commentaries on local and national policies and issues. Let it always be the SUN of TRUTH and the STAR of INFORMATION, SUN.STAR of the people.
To the men and women of SUN.STAR CAGAYAN DE ORO, from the long list of editors who are all my friends, former editors Carlos H. Conde, Mike Rocha, Herbie Gomez, Uriel Quilinguing, Vanessa Almeda, Stephen Capillas, Froilan Gallardo,DaniloAdorador, Cris Diaz, Terry Betonio and now Grace Cantal-Albasin, wherever they are now, certainly they share common experiences with the paper, their hearts with SUN.STAR CAGAYAN DE ORO emblem.
Kudos!! Congratulations on your 19th anniversary.
