Guv: PNoy invited to join
solar power inauguration

President Benigno Aquino III is expected to attend the inauguration of the P1.9 billion 19.4-megawatt solar power plant in San Carlos City, Negros Occidental, on May 15, Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said yesterday.

The solar power project located in the San Carlos Economic Zone will start commercial operations in the second quarter of this year, San Carlos Solar Energy Inc. (SaCaSol) chairman, Jose Ma. Zabaleta Sr., had said earlier.

The SaCaSol solar power plant is a renewable energy project being developed by Bronzeoak Philippines Inc. and ThomaLloyd Group.moremoremore

Committee ok's bill
for more courts

Bacolod Rep. Evelio Leonardia said yesterday that his bills seeking to create more courts for the city had been approved by the Congressional Appropriations Committee.

This means, he said, that House Bills 2490 and 2491 are now on track for the Senate, adding that Senator Koko Pimentel has agreed to sponsor them in the chamber. The Senate needs to approve the measures before they can be passed as laws. Pimentel is chair of the Senate Committee on Justice, where the bills will be referred.

Leonardia also said that, aside from Pimentel's sponsorship, he has also been in touch with other senators and he does not see any major opposition for the bills to become law, so Bacolod will soon get its much-needed additional courts.moremoremore

Pacquiao raring to win

“Gigil na gigil.” Raring to win.

That, Bacolod Rep. Evelio Leonardia said yesterday, is how the close-in team of boxing icon and Rep. Manny Pacquiao described his condition Friday, the eve of his return bout against Timothy Bradley.

“I predict we are going to see the original Manny in the ring this Sunday,” Leonardia said after meeting with the boxer and his team at his suite at the Mandalay Bay yesterday.
