Business leaders push for mass transport system from Carcar to Danao

CEBU business leaders joined the two-day economic summit initiated by incoming president Rodrigo Duterte in Davao City recently, hoping to include local concerns in the Duterte administration’s 10-point economic agenda. The delegation was led by Cebu Chamber of Commerce Inc. president Melanie Ng and among their proposals were a mass transport system from Carcar to Cebu to Danao, and P6 to P7 billion Cebu Mananga Dam 2.

This initiative (summit) is good because it makes everyone, the business community, take part in creating the economic plans for the country. Melanie Ng, CCI president.

Tragic Monday night in Naga City

Three siblings died after their two-storey house in Barangay Colon, Naga City burned down late Monday night. Allison Lee, 19, Ace Andre, 13, and Angel Lavigne, 9, were found at the ruins of their house during an inspection by fire investigators, who suspect the wiring may have gotten soaked during the rain last Monday dawn

They kept screaming for help but the flames were so big that I couldn’t get back inside. I got rattled. Survivor Eivyrenz Ruiz.

Police wants Jaguar’s assets seized

Days after conducting an operation that killed Jeffrey “Jaguar” Diaz, police officials are now targeting his multi-million assets and want them seized in favor of the government. PRO 7 director Sr. Supt. Patrocinio Comendador Jr said they want the properties and bank accounts of Diaz seized by the government so they won’t be used to jump-start another drug empire.

We will destroy their apparatus. We must disable them so they could not launch any counter-offensive. PRO 7 director Patrocinio Commendador Jr.
