The Negros Occidental provincial government has allocated P22 million to aid those whose houses were destroyed at P3,000 each, which is P17.6 million short of the amount needed.moremoremore

Pray for Pacquiao,
Bacolod solon asks

Bacolod Rep. Evelio Leonardia is calling on Bacoleños to rally in prayer behind boxing icon Manny Pacquiao as he takes on Brandon Rios tomorrow at The Venetian in Macau.

Leonardia, who had been invited again by the boxing champ to join Team Pacquiao in Macau, said that at no other time does the country need a victory on the global stage more than now, when our people are struggling to get back on their feet after Yolanda. The exercise of coming together behind a common cause should go a long way in nation-building, Leonardia said.

The Bacolod congressman also said this is a time when Bacolod should rally behind Pacquiao, who was declared an adopted son of the city by an executive order Leonardia issued when he was mayor.moremoremore
