Bacolod inks sister ties
with Korean city

The Bacolod City government has forged a sister-city relationship with Seogu Daeyu Metropolitan City, in South Korea, and the intention is based on culture, governance and international friendship, Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia said yesterday.

Leonardia said he and the city officials have a very high regard for South Korea. “It is one of the most progressive countries in the world, and we hope to learn from them,” he said.

They have also taken note of the number of Korean students in Bacolod City, and hope that Bacolod will also become a prime destination in the area of Seogu, he said.moremoremore

Two bets withdraw CoCs

A candidate for mayor who was set to run against his cousin in Victorias City, Negros Occidental, has withdrawn his Certificate of Candidacy, while a mayoral bet in Cadiz City has repudiated his nomination by the Nationalist People's Coalition and has opted to run as an independent.

The affidavit of withdrawal filed by Mark Ledesma Palanca, son of Mayor Severo Palanca, as independent mayoral candidate for Victorias has been submitted to the COMELEC Law Department in Manila, Elections Provincial Supervisor Jessie Suarez said yesterday.

Victorias Vice Mayor Francis Frederick Palanca, who is running for mayor of Victorias under the Liberal Party, said he respects the decision of his first cousin to withdraw from the race.moremoremore

Ram pump ends long treks

DON SALVADOR BENEDICTO – Gone are the days when residents and school children of Barangay Pandanon had to walk about half a kilometer through rough and steep terrain to fetch water.

Yesterday the Alternative Indigenous Development Foundation Inc., Coca Cola and the Earth Day Network Philippines installed a hydraulic ram pump at the Pandanon River that now brings water directly to the people of the barangay, saving them from back-breaking treks they had to endure in the past.

Che Idzenga, AIDFI regional project manager for Visayas, said, the ram pump provides an estimated 27,032 liters or 135 drums of water to 291 households per day in Brgy.Pandanon and to about 500 pupils of Pandanon Elementary School.moremoremore
