Bing calls for unity

Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia yesterday wished for the unity and cooperation of everyone in order to accelerate the growth and development of Bacolod City.

Leonardia made the appeal during his birthday celebration at the Bacolod Pavillion Hotel with about 2,500 people in attendance.

“We have proven in the past that if only we can work together, this city will go a long, long way. May I beg that we just concentrate on our job and let politics come later,” he said. moremoremore

No more war in Marawi

The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippinesissued a statement yesterday calling for the return of normalcy and peace in Marawi and its environs as soon as possible.

In its statement signed by its president, Archbishop Socrates Villegas,a copy ofwhich was furnished the DAILY STAR by San Carlos Bishop Gerardo Alminaza last night, the CBCP said “We all cry from our hearts: War in Marawi, never again! War in Marawi, no more!”

The bishops said they wonder whether the continued state of Martial Law, much more its extension, will bring this about. moremoremore

Dumaguete eyeing
new public market

If plans push through in cooperation with the market vendors themselves, the new public market in Dumaguete City will rise in one-and-a-half years without necessarily spending government money for a two-storey building with underground parking.

Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo said yesterday that under the public-private partnership or PPP scheme, a private business group will be allowed to a rent portion of the 1.7-hectare lot where the market is currently located.

The potential investor will pay in advance for 30 years so that the proceeds will be used to fund the construction of the two- or three-storey public market..
