TRYING TO COMPLY? The Diocese of Bacolod has cut its controversial 6 by 10-foot “Team Buhay-Team Patay” tarpaulin to half after being cited by the COMELEC for violating the rule on campaign material sizes, but the two sections are still more than the 2 by 3 feet required.*

‘Red flags will fly
until fight is over’
But Team Patay bets top survey

The Diocese of Bacolod yesterday defended its act of labeling senatorial candidates as belonging to the death and life teams, and vowed not to back down in its fight against the reproductive health law.

“The red flags of courage and martyrdom, for the protection of the life of the unborn, shall fly high in the skies of the Diocese of Bacolod” until the fight is over, a statement issued by the Diocesesaid, in response to criticisms against its actions.

The statement said Bishop Vicente Navarra, the clergy and the Catholic faithful of the Diocese declare their firmness in their conviction that respect for life from conception until its natural termination is fundamental and sacrosanct, and should not be subject to any compromises.moremoremore

Envoy bares study,
job opportunities


Israeli Ambassador to the Philippines Menashe Bar-On yesterday said his country is willing to share their ideas or programs with Bacolod City although this will need the cooperation of the business sector and the local government.

“We can bring in ideas but we will need the business sector to finance it, and we need the local government unit to accept the idea and give it its all-out support,” he said, during a courtesy call on Mayor Evelio Leonardia and other city officials at the Bacolod City Government Center last night.

Bar-On was welcomed by the city officials led by Leonardia and Vice Mayor Jude Thaddeus Sayson.

Bacolod ties eyed, too
