‘Don’t sabotage projects’
BY CHRYSEE G. SAMILLANO

Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia is appealing to his political opponents not sabotage the city’s flagship projects so they can provide better services to the people.

Leonardia yesterday said he was informed by Secretary of Finance Carlos Dominguez that someone from Bacolod went to the Department of Finance to prevent the city from obtaining a loan for these projects.

The Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod had granted the request of Leonardia for authority to obtain a loan of P1.7 billion from the DOF- Municipal Development Fund Office for several development projects for Bacolod City. moremoremore


Lupit bridge residents
live in danger – mayor
BY CHRYSEE G. SAMILLANO

The City Legal Office-Enforcement Team proceeded with the demolition of the remaining structures of informal settlers living on the riverbank of the Lupit Bridge yesterday despite the appeal of some residents to be given more time to prepare.

The one week moratorium requested by the 25 informal settlers to give them time to work out their relocation, had lapsed Wednesday.

Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia yesterday said it is a reality that the informal settlers have to be removed because they are living in a danger zone that is prone to disaster. moremoremore

BACOLEÑO TRADERS URGED
Consider ‘long-term effect’
of investing in stock market
BY MARK L. GARCIA

Bacoleño stock traders are being urged to always think of the long-term effect on investing in the stock market and choose those “fundamentally-sound companies” to invest in, a stock market expert from the Bank of the Philippine Islands, said.

Jacob Alava, BPI’s client acquisition officer, said that in investing in the stock market, an individual should not just settle on how much they can earn in the next one to two years, but think of its long-term effect.

The BPI Securities Corporation held a seminar on stock market dynamic and market outlooks yesterday at the L’Fisher Hotel in Bacolod City that was participated in by Bacoleño stock market traders and businessmen interested to venture in it.
