Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra, who mediated the impasse between the Bacolod City government and Central Negros Electric Cooperative that had plunged about one-third of Bacolod into darkness last night, said he was happy the problem had been resolved.

Many parts of Bacolod City had no electricity, while in some areas water supply was affected,  triggering numerous angry complaints from residents.

Before the dialog, Navarra said the city government and CENECO should resolve their differences and not let the public suffer.moremoremore

A former police intelligence operative was shot dead and his son slightly injured by three unidentified gunmen Thursday night in Victorias City, Negros Occidental.

The slain policeman was identified as SPO1 Dennis Gimay, a former intelligence operative of the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office, while his son, Benjiever, a second year high school student, was grazed by a bullet on his left side.

Supt. Jomil John Trio, Victorias police chief, yesterday said they are not discounting the possibility that the suspects were New People’s Army hitmen who are also engaged in “agaw-armas” operations.moremoremore
