I’ll seek Negros’ share
of rehab funds - Serge

Senator Sergio “Serge”  Osmeña III yesterday said he will push for an allocation of funds for super typhoon Yolanda-ravaged areas in Negros Occidental when the Senate deliberates on a P41 billion supplemental budget for rehabilitation work.

Osmeña visited the typhoon-hit areas of Escalante, Cadiz and Sagay cities on Saturday to assess the damage in Negros Occidental and deliver relief assistance.

Of the proposed P41 billion rehabilitation fund, Presidential Communications Secretary Sonny Coloma said P27.4 billion will be used for housing and building public infrastructures; P4.9 billion for job generation, fishery and agricultural support; P4.4 billion in constructing local facilities and P3.6 billion for healthcare assistance and education.moremoremore

Nietes KO’s Mexican opponent

Packing a mean right straight punch, World Boxing Organization light flyweight champion Negrense Donnie “Ahas” Nietes ended at third round the challenge of Mexican challenger Sammy Gutierrez to keep his World Boxing Organization light flyweight title at the Araneta Center in Manila, Saturday night.

In contrast, WBO minimumweight reigning champ Merlito Sabillo settled for a split draw decision to retain his crown.

The knockout punch from Nietes, preceded by two powerful knockdowns early in the opening round, sealed his place as the second longest reigning Filipino world champion next to Gabriel “Flash” Elorde.moremoremore

Garcia questions
inclusion in suit


The new appointee of Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella to the Bacolod City Water District Board of Directors is asking why he was included by director Marichi Ramos as co-respondent in the case she filed for the nullification of the replacement order, with urgent prayer for the issuance of a temporary restraining order.

Former Bacolod vice mayor Ramiro Garcia Jr., was appointed as replacement for Ramos as member of the board of directors of BACIWA representing the professional sector “effective immediately,” by Puentevella in his letter to the BACIWA Board dated Nov. 19.

Ramos filed a motion to admit an amended petition Wednesday, asking the Court to include former Bacolod vice mayor Ramiro Garcia as co-respondent in the case she filed for the nullification of the replacement order, with urgent prayer for issuance of a temporary restraining order..moremoremore
