Guv assures completion
of 5-storey hospital bldg


Negros Oriental Governor-elect Roel Degamo yesterday assured members of the Dumaguete clergy that the construction of the five-storey central block building at the Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital in Dumaguete City will be completed.

Degamo was invited to the meeting of the Diocese of Dumaguete where he thanked the priests for their prayers and support, saying these had contributed largely to his victory in the May 13 elections.

Degamo gave an update on the status of the central block building at NOPH that was a controversial issue against his administration during the election campaign period.

Ordination rites for
2 priests, 3 deacons set


The Diocese of Dumaguete will soon have two new priests and three deacons, with their ordination rites set at 8:30 a.m. on August 8 at the St. Catherine of Alexandria Cathedral in Dumaguete City.

Msgr. Gamaliel Tulabing, diocesan administrator, said at the mass at the St. Joseph Seminary College Monday that Archie Kadusale Toroy, 29, of Barangay Tagpo in Bais City, Negros Oriental, and Harnell Magsalay Paulin, 32, of Poblacion Maria in Siquijor, will be ordained as priests.

To be ordained to the diaconate are Lad Bryan Lawrence Ligutom, 30, of Catamboan, Lazi town, and Primo Alvarez Taoc, of Maite, San Juan, both in Siquijor; and Carem Olam, 25, of Brgy. Amio, Sta. Catalina in Negros Oriental.

Rebels kidnap five
unarmed soldiers

DAVAO – Communist insurgents wearing military uniforms abducted five soldiers in the southern Philippines, in the latest of a series of violent acts following the collapse of peace talks, authorities said yesterday.

The New People's Army guerrillas set up a roadblock on the outskirts of Davao City on Monday and seized the five soldiers as they were passing through on motorcycles, said military spokesman Colonel Ramon Zagala.

He condemned the abduction, saying the soldiers were unarmed, in civilian clothes and on their way to buy supplies for a community feeding program when they were seized.
