CA junks complaint of
2 ex-BCC teachers

The Court of Appeals Nineteenth Division has granted the petition for certiorari filed by the Board of Trustees of the Bacolod City College, led by its chairman, former Mayor and now Bacolod Rep. Evelio Leonardia, in the complaint for mandamus and damages filed by two former contractual teachers of BCC.

It also ordered that the orders of the Regional Trial Court Branch 46 in Bacolod City, dated March 12 and May 30, 2012, in Civil Case No. 11-13835, be annulled and set aside, and enter a new one dismissing the petition for mandamus and damages filed by contractual teachers Rosalia Lorilla and Susan Grandeza.

In its decision, the Court stated that it found that Lorilla was not hired as instructor by Leonardia because of her mediocre teaching performance, based on the Teachers’ Behavioral Inventory Records, and by the evaluation of numerous classes and students, that showed her to be an inferior teacher.moremoremore

Drivers to stop plying routes

Members of the United Negros Drivers and Operators Center will stop plying their routes for an hour today to press for their demands.

Malacad said the rally is simultaneous with that of their allied organizations in other provinces in the Philippines.

Coast Guard rescues
14 foreigners, 7 Pinoys


They had been drifting on board a damaged boat at Sohoton Point, about eight nautical miles of Cauayan, Negros Occidental, for almost eight hours, braving the rough seas due to tropical storm “Caloy”, when they were rescued almost midnight of March 21.

Lt. Cmdr. Glenn Daraug, Bacolod Coast Guard chief, said the 14 foreigners and seven Filipino crew members of the damaged boat, were all accounted for and unhurt, when they were rescued at about 11 p.m. Friday night, by Coast Guard personnel on board a vessel of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources.

Daraug said the motorboat sustained damage to its right outrigger at the Cauayan territorial waters at 3 p.m. Friday, prompting its passengers to send a distress call.moremoremore
