No Yanson settlement,
hearings will proceed

No amicable settlement was reached yesterday in the feud among members of the Yanson family over control of the largest bus firm in the country, so a full blown hearing of the petition to declare a takeover null and void will proceed.

The opposing Yanson camps and their Manila-based lawyers converged at a packed Regional Trial Court Branch 53 courtroom in Bacolod City for the hearing of the case filed by Leo Rey Yanson against his siblings Roy, Ricardo Jr., Celina and Emily Yanson “to declare the nullity of their so-called special board meeting” on July 7.

At that special board meeting, the four Yanson siblings ousted Leo Rey as president of the Yanson Group of Bus Companies that operates in the Visayas and Mindanao and replaced him with Roy. moremoremore

Paravet group ventures
into salted egg prod’n

The San Enrique Paravet Association, that was cited by the Provincial Veterinary Office as an outstanding volunteer at the Pasidungog sa Manugsagod sang Kasapatan 2018, has invested its P30,000 prize in salted egg production.

Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena said in a press release yesterday that the group believes that salted egg production using coconut water does not require big financial investments, and it is a suitable business venture for them as an emerging small-scale enterprise due to the scarcity of poultry products, like fresh and salted eggs in the province.

He said the association is confident that venturing into salted egg production will contribute to the supply in the province.
