Bacolod SP approves P1 add'l
entrance fee from moviegoers
A resolution favorably endorsing the request of the Philippine National Red Cross, Negros Occidental-Bacolod Chapter, for Bacolod City theater owners and operators to collect the amount of P1 as additional entrance fee from each moviegoer subject to the terms and conditions that both parties may agree on, was approved by the Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod Wednesday.
Authored by Councilor Caesar Distrito, the resolution said the PNRC-Negros Occidental-Bacolod Chapter requested the SP to pass a resolution to add one peso surcharge to each moviegoer in all cinemas in Bacolod City as part of their fund-raising campaign to support their disaster, emergency response and other humanitarian works.
It said other PNRC chapters all over the country also have similar request to add a surcharge to every moviegoer.
The resolution said the PNRC has been the leading source of blood needed by patients who undergo medical operations and also provides medical supplies like medicines.
It usually caters to the needs of indigent patients and also provides its services for free and that being a non-profit organization, it depends only on donations from private entities to sustain it, it said.
The resolution added that the Negros Occidental-Bacolod Chapter of Red Cross has strengthened its services by way of alleviating victims of both man-made and natural disasters such as those brought by the typhoons and earthquake, organized bloodletting activities and conducted on-going first aid trainings.
The Red Cross Youth, Community Health and Nursing and Social Services on the other hand, have constantly participated in various activities of the Red Cross particularly during emergency situations and promotion Red Cross services, it also said.*CGS

Cabug residents receive
shed house, water pump
A new shed house and water pump were turned over by Bacolod City Councilor Em Ang to residents of Barangay Cabug recently through Barangay Captain Juan Zonuel “Jojo” Malayang with kagawads Adora Abalajon and Rossana Ilon and residents as witnesses, a press release from her office said.
Ang said the sight of so many people queuing up to collect drinking water from a jetmatic pump in an open field of Cabug, prompted her to construct a shed house to protect them from the scorching heat of the sun or from getting wet when it is raining.
Malayang thanked Ang for the shed house and for replacing the rusty and dilapidated water pump, saying it is a big help to the residents to have access to clean water.*
