Sibulan mayor
dies of heart attack

Sibulan Mayor Emmanuel “Maning” Diputado suffered a heart attack early yesterday morning and died at around 7 a.m. at the Silliman University Medical Center Foundation in Dumaguete City.

Reports said he was rushed to the hospital by Mabinay Mayor Django Uy, after he suffered a heart attack. Diputado was first elected councilor, then vice-mayor and mayor. He was single and is survived by his family.

A Facebook post from former Board Member Erwin Macias said, “Lost a good friend today…He was known as a councilor, vice mayor, mayor of Sibulan…but to me, he was a real good friend”. .

First Gaisano mall in NegOr
to open in Bais, lease signed

The first Metro Gaisano mall in Negros Oriental will soon open in Bais City, following the signing of a lease agreement with the local government unit.

This is historic since this is the first Gaisano in Negros Oriental, Lloyd Elmaco, Bais City legal officer said, adding the lease is by virtue of Ordinance No. 35, or the Public Private Partnership Code of Bais City.

This opened the doors of Bais City to potential investors like the Montesol Solar plants of the Ayala Group of companies, then now Metro Gaisano, he said.
