Voters reject creation of
Paglaum barangay

Residents of Barangay Mansilingan, Bacolod City, rejected the creation of Brgy. Paglaum, in a plebiscite held in the barangay Saturday.

Bacolod Elections Officer Mavil Majarucon-Sia declared the proposed creation of Brgy. Paglaum “rejected and disapproved” after the canvassing dominated by the “no” votes was completed at the Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod Session Hall.

Canvassing results showed that those who opposed the separation of Paglaum Village from Mansilingan by voting “no” garnered 2,987 votes against the 2,582 who voted “yes” in favor of the creation of Brgy. Paglaum, or a difference 405 votes.moremoremore

Pope names new
Filipino cardinal


Pope Francis announced yesterday the names of 19 new cardinals from around the world, one of whom is a Filipino, 74-year-old Archbishop of Cotabato Orlando Quevedo.

Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra last night said he is very happy with Quevedo’s appointment, because Mindanao needs a cardinal.

He described Quevedo as a scholar and a good administrator.

The Philippines, at present, has three cardinals: Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, 56, Metropolitan Archbishop of Manila; Cardinal Gaudencio Rosales, 81, Metropolitan Archbishop emeritus of Manila; and Cardinal Ricardo Vidal, 82, Metropolitan Archbishop emeritus of Cebu, Navara said.

Son kills pa

A misunderstanding led a son to kill his own father Friday in Brgy. Poblacion, Cauayan, Negros Occidental.

Police identified the suspect as Russel dela Vida, 24, who used a wooden stick in mauling to death his father, Leonardo, 61, investigations showed.

The victim suffered multiple injuries after being beaten by his son, who is now detained at the Cauayan police jail.

Parricide charges are now being readied by the Cauayan police for filing against the suspect.moremoremore
