We should rethink need
for 2 districts, solon says

“The major reason why redistricting Bacolod could have been beneficial to us was that it could have doubled the Priority Development Assistance Fund allocation to our city,” Bacolod Rep. Evelio Leonardia said yesterday.

“Now thatthe PDAF has been abolished, we need to rethink our position on splitting the city into two districts,” he added.

Leonardia said he had batted for redistricting in the past because very obviously with two districts, the city would get twice the PDAF and spur its development. There is no more PDAF now, and pressing for two districts could only double government expenses for results that can be effectively delivered only by one congressman who works well and hard.moremoremore

Walk the path of integrity,
PNoy tells Negros media

“Stand impartial and faithful to factual, substantive and empowering reportage.”

This was the challenge of President Benigno Aquino III in the message he sent to the new officers of the Negros Press Club, led by its president Carla Cañet of Sun.Star Bacolod and vice president Chrysee Samillano of the Visayan DAILY STAR, at their induction rites at the Social Hall of the Capitol in Bacolod City Saturday night.

As the NPC, the oldest press club in the country, marked its 78th year, the President said “May your storied history compel your member-organizations to always walk the path of integrity and live by the standards of journalism advocated by your early leaders”.moremoremore

EB Magalona’s
most wanted falls


“Tsismis (gossip),” led to the arrest of a fugitive in EB Magalona, Negros Occidental, who is an alleged member of a notorious robbery-hold-up group, by pursuing lawmen Friday in Tanza, Cavite, police said.

Operatives of the Regional Intelligence Units 6, assisted by Senior Inspector Irma Tagle Teoxon of the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office, apprehended Richard de la Torre, 49, in Brgy. Hulugan, Tanza, Cavite, by virtue of an arrest warrant for the crime of murder.

The presence of de la Torre in Tanza, Cavite, was relayed by RIU 4 operatives in Central Luzon to their counterpart at RIU 6 in Iloilo, on information that stemmed from gossip, that he could not return to EB Magalona, Negros Occidental, because he is facing a murder case, a police intelligence operative, who requested anonymity, said yesterday. moremoremore
