If the Central Negros Electric Cooperative will not recognize its power supply contract with Manta Energy Inc., that is their right, MEI spokesperson Gerry Llena said yesterday.

CENECO issued a statement that it has no power supply contracts with IN2 Power or its new name Manta Energy.

Llena said CENECO claimed that it has no contract with MEI but they have impliedly accepted that they have entered into a contract with IN2Power for intermediate power of 22 MW. moremoremore

Pacquiao invites
Bing to LA fight

Philippine ring icon and Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao has once again invited Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia to join him in the ring as he fights former four-time world champion Shane Mosley on May 7 in Las Vegas, Navada.

In his letter to Leonardia dated March 18, 2011, Pacquiao said he is inviting the mayor to be among his few trusted friends to come into the ring with him – either to carry one of his championship belts or the Philippine flag before the fight begins.

“Your presence in the ring during my many previous title fights has been a great morale support for me. Undoubtedly, you are among my lucky charms,” Pacquiao said.moremoremore
