Cong. Lucy Torres-Gomez greets constituents at Brgy. Cambalading, Albuera during the inauguration of the second phase of her covered court project there. Lucy apologized to the people and officials for the delay in finishing of the covered court because its funding, which comes from her PDAF, was diverted by the national government to Mindanao to help rehabilitate towns damaged by Typhoon Sendong. However, she said, now that the funds have been replenished, there is no more stopping the completion of the project which is very much longed for by residents there. Photo by Marian Lastimosa

Ship captain Junto Eslawan said that the ship suddenly keeled to the left when they were maneuvering to unload the third van, slamming the port. Their woes compounded when high tide came this afternoon, swamping the ship and causing an oil spill. read more
