Loan, not project denied,
pro-Alvarez BMs say


The day the Sangguniang Panlalawigan denied the bid of Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. to avail of a P10 million bank loan to build six more classrooms badly needed at the Negros Occidental Provincial High School was a very sad one for all of us, NOHS principal Mario Amaca said yesterday.

Amaca said the teachers, students and alumni who were expecting approval of the loan for the classrooms were very disappointed by the decision of the SP Wednesday.

Marañon yesterday reiterated that the denial by the SP, which he said was politically motivated, will delay the construction of the classrooms.moremoremore

Thousands welcome saint’s image

Thousands of devotees lined the streets and filled the San Sebastian Cathedral in Bacolod City yesterday to welcome the pilgrim image of San Pedro Calungsod, the second Filipino saint who was canonized in Rome last month by Pope Benedict XVI.

The 3-foot statue of San Pedro Calungsod brings the message of rousing in every Filipino Christian the kind of faith that we have, Bishop Vicente Navarra said in his homily at the concelebrated mass at the Cathedral yesterday.

“San Pedro Calungsod offered his life for the faith. Let’s ask ourselves if we are ready to do the same,” the bishop said.moremoremore
