ISABEL, LEYTE – Mayor Saturnino Medina Jr. of this town assures constituents that the town’s waterworks program will be commissioned on time, contrary to rumors being spread by his political detractors that it won’t be finished because he has displeased PhilPhos owner Jose “Pito” Alvarez, Jr.

This Wednesday, December 19, a consultancy firm specializing in water systems inked a contract with Rex Morales, the project’s construction contractor, to be its project manager and finish the remaining portion of the P 104-million project up to its commissioning. The water consultancy firm is the SAVS Water Utilities Corporation. read more

ORMOC CITY – A barangay tanod at Brgy. San Jose here, one of Ormoc’s biggest barangays, was gunned down by motorcycle riding assassins in what his family believes is largely related to his hard stance against the proliferation of illegal drugs and gambling in their city. This sends a chilling factor to concerned citizens who’d like to help the police in solving criminality in their communities, as the culture of impunity in the city continues. 

Gunned down in the afternoon of December 17 at the “habal-habal” terminal of San Jose was Gerry Cañete, in his early 40’s. He was killed in front of many people. He was reportedly shot seven times but only four found their mark, including two which disfigured his face that the embalmer’s efforts to restore how he looked when alive went to naught. A bullet went through the back of his neck and exited on his left eye. read more
