CHINESE NEW YEAR. This inflatable dragon in front of the Bacolod Government Center comes alive only from 6 to 8:30 a.m. and  at night because the pump that blows it up can operate for only   four  hours at a time so it does not overheat, but a machine  with the proper  hertz capacity is being purchased, Bacolaodiat chairman Leonito Lopue said.**

‘Corona SALNs back
ill-gotten wealth raps’

MANILA -- The prosecution panel of the House of Representatives last night said that the statement of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALNs) of Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona that were submitted to the Senate Impeachment Court, supported Article 2 of Impeachment, of the chief magistrate's unexplained wealth.

Marikina Rep. Romero Federico Quimbo, one of the spokesmen of the prosecution team, in a press briefing, that the chief justice declared P18-million worth of assets in 2010 despite having acquired five condominium units, including one supposedly worth P14.5 million.

"I don’t think you can fit in five condominium properties here," he said.moremoremore

PhilHealth lowers rates
for LGUs, Alvarez says

Acting Governor Genaro Alvarez Jr. yesterday announced that PhilHealth has agreed to charge Negros Occidental local government units only P600 for its sponsored indigent members this year, and P1,200 next year.

This is good news for the local government units and the congressmen with indigent enrollees in PhilHealth, he said.

The provincial government and the 31 mayors of Negros Occidental had earlier agreed to withdraw payment of premiums for their 148,081 indigent enrollees with PhilHealth, and instead pay the amount directly to the Negros Occidental Comprehensive Health Care Program that will be their health insurance provider instead.moremoremore
