stricken with diarrhea
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW & MARICAR ARANAS

The number of patients coming down with diarrhea in what is already described as an “outbreak” among the Region 8 official delegates to the Palarong Pambansa 2013 in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental, has risen to 169, a doctor accompanying the delegation said.

Dr. Jennifer Picardal said the latest cases as of 4:45 p.m. Saturday involved elementary and secondary athletes and coaches, with 11 hospital admissions due to the severity of symptoms.

Five coaches were among the newest cases recorded, she said.

Military hit for escorting
politician, ‘armed goons’

BY GILBERT BAYORAN

The New People’s Army Leonardo Panaligan Command slammed the Army’s 302nd Infantry Brigade for allegedly allowing its soldiers to escort a politician and her alleged armed goons, while campaigning in the areas of Canlaon City and Guihulngan in Negros Oriental.

Ka JB Regalado, spokesman of the Leonardo Panaligan Command, in a statement, said this only indicated that its commander, Col. Francisco Patrimonio, is tolerating the activities of traditional politicians to intimidate people in the countryside, in the guise of their Peace and Development campaign.

Regalado also criticized Col. Jon Aying, newly-installed commander of the 303rd Infantry Brigade, for allegedly allowing a mayor in central Negros to terrorize the Hacienda Benito in Brgy Crossing Magallon, Moises Padilla and other towns in the 5th district.

Dauin brgy gets
daycare center

BY RENE GENOVE

The Department of Social Welfare and Development and the local government unit turned over a daycare center to Barangay Libjo, Dauin, recently.

DSWD Regional Director Mercedita Jabagat lauded the community volunteers for completing the project, and said they will continue to assist the daycare workers in preparing snacks and food for the children under the supplementary feeding program of the government.

The community project is built on a 48-square meter building that costs P790,300, and will directly benefit preschoolers of the 120 families within and outside the barangay.
