Pacquiao mystic alive’

World boxing icon Manny Pacquiao knocked down American Chris Algieri six times as he totally dominated the 12-round fight, and earned a unanimous decision to keep his World Boxing Organization welterweight belt at the Cotai Arena in Macau yesterday.

The judges scored the fight, 119-103, 119-103, 120-102, all in favor of the Filipino boxing champion, who missed the opportunity to knock out Algieri as the American undefeated WBO light welterweight champion seemingly refused to engage in a toe-to-toe battle.

Bacolod City Rep. Evelio Leonardia, who was once again tapped by Pacquiao to be his flag bearer, said the result of the blockbuster fight showed that the Manny Pacquiao mystic is still very much alive and “it looks like it will be there to stay for a long, long time”.moremoremore

Negros media call on Aquino:
Give massacre victims justice

The Negros Press Club yesterday called on President Benigno Aquino III and Justice Secretary Leila de Lima to help ensure a fair, just and speedy resolution of the Maguindanao Massacre trial five years after the gruesome bloodbath that took the lives of 58 people, 32 of whom were journalists.

About 50 members of the media and Mass Communication students from the University of St La Salle and the University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos joined the NPC candle-lighting rites at the steps of the provincial Capitol in Bacolod City to mark the 5th year of the massacre.

The candles forming the word JUSTICE stressed the call of the participants for government action. moremoremore

‘Sendong’ victims to get free
power connection at Caritas


At least 58 families, who were displaced by typhoon Sendong in late 2011 and who are now residing at a low-cost housing site in Dumaguete City, will receive free electric meters and individual installation and connection to their homes.

This after the Negros Oriental 2 Electric Cooperative switched on the electric line that will power the houses of the families living at the Caritas Village Shelter Phase I in Barangay Bajumpandan, Dumaguete Friday.

Noreco 2 general manager Dionefred Macahig, Dumaguete Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria, Vice Mayor Woodrow Maquiling Sr., Rep. George Arnaiz (Neg. Or., 2nd District) Bajumpandan Barangay Captain Orlando Enquig, kagawads Juancho Gallarde and Noel Ramirez, and Fr. Burton Villarmente of the Social Action Center of the Diocese of Dumaguete were among those present during the switch-on ceremony..moremoremore
