Ronda vice mayor tagged as drug lord protector
RONDA Vice Mayor John Ungab is in the news again for the wrong reasons, again.

A complaint was filed against the vice mayor based on a list of personalities who allegedly receive protection money from the drug lord.
Ungab said his relationship with Espinosa was purely professional as he was one of his clients.

Davide asks DOH, help fight against dengue
AFTER the Department of Health said there is no basis for a declaration of a dengue outbreak in Cebu, Governor Hilario Davide asked the agency to help their fight against the disease instead of contradicting them. The Provincial Board declared an outbreak last Oct. 10 to help facilitate the release of funds in the fight against dengue, but the declaration was opposed by DOH.
Instead of contradicting, the DOH 7 should say let’s look at the dengue-stricken are so we can determine how we can help. Gov. Hilario Davide III.
