4 killed on Holy Week,
11 injured in Neg. Occ.


The observance of the Holy Week in Negros Occidental, as always in the past, was again marred by incidents of shooting, stabbing and hacking and even robbery-hold-ups, that resulted in the death of four persons, including a Pinay-turned-Australian citizen, and injuries to 11 others.

Police records also showed that six of the nine incidents took place on Good Friday.

Police Officer 1 Jordan Baynosa, investigator of the San Carlos police, identified the victim whose body was found in a septic tank on April 10 near her residence at St. Vincent Subdivision, Brgy. 1 in San Carlos City, as Josefina Forber, a 54-year-old Pinay-turned-Australian citizen..moremoremore

Solons urged:
Reject nuclear power plant

The seven congressmen of Negros Occidental are being urged to reject House Bill 4631  otherwise known as “an act mandating the immediate re-commissioning and commercial operation of the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant.”

The Freedom From Debt Coalition-Negros   is asking Negros Representatives Julio Ledesma (First District), Alfredo Marañon III (Second District), Jose Carlos Lacson (Third District), Jeffrey Ferrer (Fourth District), Ignacio Arroyo Jr. (Fifth District),  Genaro Alvarez (Sixth District) and Monico Puentevella (Bacolod) to withdraw their  signatures from the bill, FDC president Rudy Yanson said.

Yanson said he hopes the seven solons reflected on the consequences of their bill over Holy Week.moremoremore

While a wake for their daughter Gwyneth Eowyn Anasta, 5 years and 11 months old, who succumbed to dengue fever was being held, Jail Officer 2 Richard Anasta and his wife, Virginia, of Barangay Handumanan, Bacolod City, were at the hospital battling for the survival of another child.

“Gwyneth Eowyn was a very good and pretty daughter, and all of a sudden she was taken away from us,” Anasta, who works at the Bacolod City Jail, said.moremoremore
