CLMMRH receives donation
The Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital in Bacolod City was among the recipients of Uratex’s Project 50 recently, its press release said.
Uratex executive vice president Eddie Gallor and manufacturing director Hector Go led the donation of mattresses to CLMMRH as part of its 50th anniversary celebration.
Uratex, the leading provider of sleep solutions, visited the hospital for its Project 50 corporate social responsibility program. The yearlong project is part of the brand’s roster of activities for the celebration of its 50 years in the industry. Uratex is set to provide a total of 2,500 mattresses to hospitals and nursing homes nationwide, the press release said.
Representatives of the foam solutions provider toured the hospital, and Project 50 proved to be very timely and helpful to CLMMRH. It’s because the hospital sometimes receives twice as much patients than their 400-bed capacity.

Negros cops get medals
BY SHIELA G. GELERA
The Police chief of Hinigaran town, Negros Occidental, who was shot and injured by an armed suspect, was conferred with the Wounded Personnel Medal, recently.
Chief Supt. Cesar Hawthorne Binag, Police Regional Office-6 director, Saturday conferred the medal on Chief Insp. Jake Barila, commander of Hinigaran Police Station, who is recuperating at a hospital in Bacolod City.
Barila, who was hit in his thigh on March 21, while resolving a hostage crisis situation at Hacienda Manucao-A in Barangay Palayog, Hinigaran, showed bravery and devotion to his duty, Binag said.
Despite his injury, Barila managed to retaliate, by shooting the suspect, Dabi Ysasi, with his M-16 rifle, hitting him in the chest.
The suspect was brought to the Corazon Locsin Regional Memorial Hospital, also in Bacolod.
Meanwhile, Police Regional Office 6 also awarded personnel of two police stations and a drug enforcement unit in Negros Occidental, at a ceremony held at the Camp Martin Delgado in Iloilo City, yesterday.
The Medalya ng Kagalingan, or the Philippine National Police Medal of Merit, was conferred on personnel of the Sipalay City Police Station when two of them were wounded while serving a warrant of arrest to Sipalay’s most-wanted person, Emerson Antipaso Jr., on murder charges, in Barangay Manlocahoc, Sipalay, on March 15, 2018, a PRO-6 report said.
A similar medal was given to members of the Provincial Drug Enforcement Unit and to the San Enrique Police Station for the recovery of 32.60 grams of shabu valued by the Dangerous Drugs Board at P489,000,while implementing the warrant of arrest for drugs charges in La Carlota City, Negros Occidental, on February 9, the report added.*SGG
