Live with the masses.

The challenge came from priest-turned-rebel Frank Fernandez, who claims to be the spokesperson of the National Democratic Front-Negros, and is addressed to Roman Catholic priests in Negros.

Fernandez enjoined his former colleagues in the priesthood not to live in the comfort of the convent, but with the ordinary masses, in response to the call of Pope Benedict.moremoremore

‘Baciwa union respects
injunction granted Ramos'


The president of the BACIWA Employees Union yesterday said they respect the decision of the Regional Trial Court on the injunctive relief sought by Bacolod City Water District director Marichi Ramos and said that it is now up to the Local Water Utilities Administration what other remedies to take.

Claudio Salmo said they have done their part so it is now up to LWUA if it will appeal the decision of the Court.

The Regional Trial Court Branch 44 in Bacolod City issued a writ of preliminary injunction directing LWUA officer-in-charge of the Office of the Acting Administrator Manuel Yoingco et al, to refrain from enforcing his order dated Oct. 14, 2013 denying the confirmation of Ramos as director of the BACIWA. moremoremore
