(Go ahead sir!" he replied with a smile as he unlocks the side door. It was the main gate from El Puerto Marina Beach Resort and its a few meters walk to the beach walking, by the resort fence on a dirt path. The nocturnal salty air got stronger as I near the shore. I seemed to have stirred the attention of a resident dog who doesn't stop barking seeing (or was it smelling) my presence there. Another guard doing his round ...
A 72-year-old Lingayen resident has asked the Inter-Agency Task Force Against Illegal Mining chaired by Justice Secretary Leila de Lima to look into the inventory and disposal of magnetite stockpile (black sand) where illegal black sand mining occurred there from 2011 to 2013.
"I am a 72-year old man who has gotten used to waking up every morning facing the Lingayen Beach, but now fear that the view of the sea that I enjoyed for so many years may no longer be experienced by the next generations," said Rolando , who also addressed his complaint to the Department of Justice and the Departme ...
