near fist-fight at SP
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
The much-publicized Pacquiao-Algieri fight scheduled this month in Macau was almost upstaged by a near exchange of blows between two councilors of Bacolod City right in the Session Hall, that was stopped by the proverbial cooler heads of their colleagues yesterday.
The regular session of the Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod had to be cut short when Councilors Claudio Puentevella and Carlos Jose Lopez nearly engaged in a fistfight over the requirement of a liquidation report from the Kasadya Bacolod Foundation Inc. that ran the 2014 MassKara Festival.
Vice Mayor Vice Mayor Greg Gasataya yesterday said he tried to pacify the two who got into a heated discussion over the amendments to the proposed resolution of Lopez requesting Kasadya to submit its liquidation report within 30 days.

A graduating college student of Silliman University in Dumaguete City was found dead with multiple stab and hack wounds at her rented apartment in Sibulan town, Negros Oriental, at about 3 a.m. yesterday.
Police reports identified the fatality as Myra Abrenica Gabato, 25, a Business Administration student. Her younger sister, Melanie, was discovered hogtied by still unknown suspects, who had forced their way inside the victims' apartment at Ablir Street, Barangay Poblacion, a few blocks away from the Sibulan police station.
Their brother, Mark Neil, said Melanie called up at about 5:45 a.m. and in a trembling voice said her "Ate" Myra was stabbed and is already bathed in her own blood. He immediately informed his father, Juan, and the rest of the family about it and they called up their relatives in Piapi, who, in turn, informed the Sibulan Police Station.
