  1. James, you have proven yourself to be a honest man of high moral character and integrity. I'm sure the readers of this forum value everything you have said concerning this case and we appreciate you sharing what you know with us. You should be the very last person suspected of being involved in this crime.

  2. I have tried to aviod personal statements as to avoid imposing any positive of negative influence. I have only posted information provided by investigators so his family anf friends could be advised as to what is current pertaining to this case. I would have never posted what I post but since he seem to be trying to throw mud, I had to throw some varifiable facts to challange his statements.

  3. You are right JM (me), KL, and AS could be on the suspect list as is Jane, her driver Jerome, and two shooters. As for me you leave much out of the story. Little things like Harry actually owed me over 26,000 pesos, so this 10,000 pesos you are referring to was actually owed to my wife for taking over his business and firing Miss. Kima, throwing 4 adopted daughters out of their home, and my tossing out 2 East German deadbeats (one you mentioned being put in a wheelchair) out of their lodge. I let him slide on the tools, I did not care the putz tried to frame me on a false charge, but my wife is entitled to be paid… and she was. That the February shooting was believed to be concocted for publicity or in fact Jane and the new driver was considered to be the suspect in that shooting. The cops, city officials, or local expats never considered me a suspect. Harry's shooting scene was suspect, and he had fabricated evidence against me. The police have copies of all the evidence harry turned in to them. I also after a week waiting for them to come interview me i decided to go to them and turned in all emails, Facebook, messages, and copies of our text message exchanges. KL who was accused of stealing moneys has documents proving the missing money was actually used for the running of the lodge or were in fact handed over to Jane Doyle for her own use behind Harry's back. KL (Miss. Kima) was Harry's private secretary. 3:30 New Year morning witnesses saw someone resembling one of Jane’s brothers and there new driver Jerome leaving the scene of an arson on a bike that matches the description of a bike belonging to the Doyles. Gasoline was actually poured around her family residence and set ablaze. Miss. Kima and 6 family members barely escaped with their lives. If not for earlier heavy rains they and probably many of their surrounding neighbors could have lost their homes or perished in that fire. Signed statements have been properly filed with PNP in this arson case. She is presently in hiding in fear of Jane Doyle and the driver Jerome. AS (former driver) Arnel has been paralyzed from his shoulders down from being shot off his motorcycle almost 4 months ago, after a chase involving two other motorcycles and just before Arnel slipped into unconsciousness he positively identified Jerome the new driver as the one who shot him. Jerome is presently a suspect in the shooting of Harry Doyle. He was held in jail until the first hearing but released on a 100,000 peso cash bond posted by Harry and Jane Doyle, and is to appear for the second hearing scheduled in November. I also have never accused Jane of the shooting; I still do not want to believe that she could have her husband gunned down in front of his son. I do not want to believe she could be capable of such a monstrous act. I started posting this story on the forums in the hope to find the shooters who shot Harry Doyle in front of his special needs son. Jane is a suspect because of witness testimony at the scene of the shooting, her and Jerome’s inconsistent stories, her unwillingness to talk with investigators, and her lawyer’s unwillingness to cooperate with investigators. Combine this with the fact that others have seen her and Jerome with one of the identified shooters sitting for over 2 hours eating at a public restaurant/bar frequented by Surigao expats, and the fact she is refusing to return to the Philippines or even talk with the investigators to help solve the shooting of her husband. Then add two life insurance policies, and a new will cutting her husband’s two children out of the will and leaving her the sole beneficiary. It can all easily be explained but it is a shame she cannot help them to lift their suspicions of her. I know (JM) did not shot him and I quite sure the other two (KL) Miss. Kima and (AS) Arnel are far too poor to hire shooters and both are very far from Surigao to arrange any such foolishness. But you are quite right there is probably a list a kilometer long of possible suspects. Perhaps you yourself might also be considered, or are merely trying to assist Jane in trying to slander those she feels might be potential witnesses. I hope not because that is not the action of innocent people. All that I have said as been previously filed with police. Most of the inspectors of this shooting are well informed to the particulars involving (JM), (KL), and (AS) and do not consider them suspects... victims maybe but not suspects. The next hearing is comming this 10th and arrest warrants will be filed on the 4 who are believed suspects, then finally after a month the investigators can get some very simply questions answered. I do have faith in the investigators, court system and, the two outstanding prosecutors here in Surigao City.

  4. Nasty little disease .. also found in Hawaii in fresh water streams. If you have to wade in the flood waters -- and unfortunately many people don't have a choice -- pay attention to any cuts or areas of broken skin. As Bubba's original post mentioned, wash well. Retreatment with an antibiotic ointment is also recommended It's important to be aware of the symptoms and get treatment early (penicillin, etc). Just another joy of living in your "tropical paradise".

  5. The problem w/pepper spray is it's subject to wind direction and a human (most anyway) is going to know what it is. To shoot that tigerlight spray you have to arm it, insert your thumb under a safety latch, aim, fire. Most street crime happens in the blink of an eye, it's over before you even think to get it out of your pocket. When I'm walking with my wife I carry a canister of spray for dogs because we were nearly attacked a couple of months ago by a pack of 4, 2 of them appeared to be it pit bulls. All within spitting distance of the police station. They don't care, you are on your on.

  7. This type of truck was first built in Canada by a coach builder who's father was an American farmer. This was in the early 1890s. The downside is that the vehicle was steam powered and only lasted for one season. Later he built another version of the truck but based it on an unknown model vehicle which used a combustion engine this time. They called it the "Pick Up" as it had the rear seats removed and a box installed and was used to pick up supplies in town. The name stuck and became more common in use for other motor vehicles converted for farm use. In 1925 Ford built the first commercial truck called the Runabout that could be purchased with the "pick-up" box installed at the factory. Sorry Jim.... but was not the first Ute in Australia produced around 1932 or 33? Another Ford product I believe! I grew up in a car family - my father was in management with GM and my brother-in-law is in senior management with a Ford spin-off company. Both were antique car enthusiasts. And old family videos sound like advertising productions for their respective car companies - when they weren't talking about antique and turn of the century cars! So I kind of kept a general interest in older vehicles myself.... :mocking:

  8. In my wandering around the internet I came across this video and wondered if this is a big event or part of one of the many fiestas and celebrations. By the sound of the crowd noise and what I could see, it sure looks like it is a big hit! Any of you Cebu folks enjoyed this?

  9. If any of what was stated above by Bodin is true and I'm in no position to know one way or the other the moral of this tragic story would be..... Don't have financial dealings in Philippines. Rightly or wrongly, don't cross people and start grudges. Keep your assets out of Philippines. Simple rules.

  10. treatment for this Disease is now covered by Philhealth Under Circular 39, the health insurance will cover all PhilHealth members and non-members, said Department of Health (DOH) Secretary Enrique Ona. For those who have moderate leptospirosis cases, they are entitled to a “case rate” of P11,000 when admitted in hospitals. Those with severe leptospirosis will get reimbursements for their hospital bills, according to PhilHealth Circular 40 series of 2012. Sponsored Program members and beneficiaries are covered by the “no-balance” billing policy, which means there will be no additional payment coming from the member or beneficiary. http://ph.news.yahoo.com/leptospirosis-patients-now-covered-philhealth-101616313.html http://www.philhealth.gov.ph/circulars/2012/circ40_2012.pdf

  13. Right MikeB ..... your attackers know exactly what they are going to do and you can only anticipate .... unless they are following you it will be damn hard for you to defend yourself ..... I personally walk with a rattan cane (not needed except if I get clumsy like missing a step going down stairs .... :mocking: ) it is perfectly legal to carry and use and no one has second thoughts about you walking with one ..... not much good in a gun fight but everything else including dogs is fair game .... if you go this route be sure it is good quality and made of hard wood or rattan not bamboo ..... aluminum or other hollow materials ..... IMHO ..... :tiphat: ...... :cheersty:

  14. Wow .. given the number of typhoons that come into the Phils area each year (15-30), the barometer readings would be all over the place. Would make interesting reading for a weather watcher .. let me know if you find anything.

  16. I question how useful a stun gun would be for self defense for two reasons. 1. You have to physically touch the assailant.. that means they are close in and can be attacking you at the same time. 2. If there are multiple assailants, a second bad guy can be taking you down while you stun the first. That is why I am considering some sort of pepper spray which may work better with multiple assailants since it can have an 8-12 foot range allowing you to hold off assailants without them getting in too close. Plus the pepper spray will have a longer lasting effect on the assailant than the stun gun. Perhaps something like this: http://www.tigerlight.net/T100_Features.html

  17. I believe one of the things those of us from western societies always think of is "Attacker" or "Bad Guy". We think singular individuals are the ones after us. In Philippines it is going to be multiple assailants. Our nature is to focus on one target. There you need eyes in the back of your head! Crime is a team effort in Philippines for the most part. Papa Carl provided a good example with his friend in Angeles City. He saw a guy run out, jump on a motorbike and run off. There was another one still in the house.

  18. Julia, Why a Filipina? Why not strive for the best in LIFE, for LIFE. I too have travelled extensively, and dated in most places I lived, (well OK ALL places I lived). Everywhere I went I ended up dating or befriending a Filipina, (even on a cruise in the Caribbean) so it was a simple choice. Ellie and I have been together for just over 6 years, married for just over 2 years, and now have a beautiful, intelligent 22 month old Filipina daughter. Best decision I have made in my life! Has it been perfect?.... No But what makes it acceptable, and worth staying...... Filipina!! I believe in this saying.... It is what it is!! It is my wife, my friend, my lover, my equal, who make all the corruption, filth, etc. worth it. Easy answer. Papa Carl

  19. Julia I never married any filipina, i married to my wife which i love and appreciate no matter where in the world she comes from. She so happened to be a filipina, her ethnicity and nationality did not mean anything to me. I have had girlfriends and lovers from virtually the entire earth. Ethnicity, nationality sland eyes yellow brown black or white...perhaps pink will do :), DOES NOT MATTER. What it matters is the person you have decided to share the rest of your life with to be the one you really want. Nothing special with filipinas, they are women as in the rest of the world, good or bad no one can tell. The woman who might be bad for me or to me can be an angel and his all the time wishing mate to be. Culutre and all the rest...they all have a certain culture from every place in the world, how it applies to the man who marries them though is a TOTALLY different story. Now if you choose filipina because: she speaks english, she can understand me my 1200$/month pension money will keep her happy I am 60++ but even at her <25 she can understand how i feel she is not raising her voice to me she will be as such and will do as such and will take care of... Then you end up to usually other forums stating as Filipinas speak english and can manipulate the law and advantages they get as soon as they come to US-Australia-Europe...zimbabwe...(why not???) Filipinas will spend each and every dime you give them in stupid expends without thinking the future etc (what future on 1200$?? prices are on year 2012, perhaps you should get there too) Filipinas take advantage of elder men by fooling them on everything until they satisfy their need then they throw them like a peanut shell. (you were not good in math at school...65-25=40 years of difference...your money to spend as you like....her life to do what she likes with it) Filipinas are constantly complaining about every little thing. (All women do!!!) She never was any of the "will" i was expecting from a filipina (because filipina refers to a woman and that's what she is). Time to go to the bar!!!!!

  21. I just have to disagree with this statement outright... I've lived in and been a lot of places (USA, Europe, Asia) and find that the Philippines is the most simple and straight forward that I have seen. Such a simple life I have found here and MOSTLY simple solutions to complicated life. I LOVE IT and don't want to go "HOME" but I will and get the best from both places. :thumbsup: I've only been here 5 months but other than the pollution in Cebu City it is perfect FOR ME & I don't see that changing anytime soon. :tiphat:

  23. Thanks for the info, Bubba. One other thing I never thought of while wading in flood waters. Usually the water is brackish and hard to see the walking surface, and most times man-hole covers have been blown off by water pushing out of the sewers. One wrong step, and you could disappear down the sewer and drown. Better just to let the water subside. If you must walk through the flood waters, get a walking stick or something similar to "feel" the walking surface in front of you.
