PACMAN DRUBS ALGIERI

But KO remains elusive for Pacquiao

By: Alex P. Vidal

AS EXPECTED, Manny Pacquiao walked past unbeaten WBO light welterweight champion Chris Algieri, but he failed to score the knockout demanded by his fans since November 2009.

The Pacman won by a lopsided decision after 12 rounds to keep his WBO welterweight crown at the Cotai Arena inside the Venetian Resort in Macao, China.

Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs) scored a tension-filled unanimous decision over Algieri (20-0, 8 KOs), who was downed six times and became the seventh man to finish the distance with the Pabansang Kamao since March 13, 2010 when the latter beat Joshua Clottey via12-round unanimous decision in Arlington, Texas.

Pacquiao, 35, stalked Algieri, 30, the whole fight, as Algieri used his footwork to backpedal and box from outside.

Algieri slipped in round two but referee Genaro Rodriquez credited it as a knockdown for Pacquiao.

De la Cruz: I’m not qualified as assistant agriculturist

By: Wenceslao E. Mateo Jr.

FORMER Iloilo City Local Economic Enterprise Office (LEEO) head Vincent de la Cruz said he is not interested in the position of assistant agriculturist which is believed to be reserved for him.

“I am a B.S. in Economics and a law graduate. I may have some management experience but I don’t think I can handle the job where it similarly requires the training and experience of the agriculturist, which I do not have,” de la Cruz told The Daily Guardian.

Under Article 12, Sec. 482 of the Local Government Code: “No person shall be appointed agriculturist unless he is a citizen of the Philippines, a resident of the local government unit concerned, of good moral character, a holder of a college degree in agriculture or any related course from a recognized college or university, and a first grade civil service eligible or its equivalent.

Roxas City councilors defy TRO

By: Felipe V. Celino

ROXAS City, Capiz – Majority of councilors here defied the temporary restraining order (TRO) issued by the Regional Trial Court against their special session Thursday afternoon.

RTC Executive Judge Ignacio Alajar granted the 72-hour TRO sought by Vice Mayor Ronnie Dadivas out of “extreme urgency.”

Dadivas filed a civil case for “Injunction with Prayer for Issuance of Preliminary Injunction and / or Temporary Restraining Order” against Councilors Erwin Sicad, Trina Marie Ignacio, Mathew James Viterbo, Cesar Yap, Jennifer Anisco-Poliran, Erllynne Lim, Virgilio Santos, Jose Agdalipe and Abela.

Unfortunately, the TROs did not stop the special session as it was served late, according to Councilor Julius Abela, rules committee chairman.

In his civil suit, Dadivas alleged that the holding of the special session is “contrary to the Internal Rules and Procedure” and will cause “great and irreparable damage” to him.

November 24,2014 12:56 AM

By: Perfecto R. Yasay, Jr.

THE widespread influence of Islam throughout the Philippines predates the arrival of the Spaniards by at least 200 years. And yet the imposition of Christianity by a colonial power with a predatory appetite for gold and natural resources swiftly destroyed the various Muslim communities that dotted the large expanse of the archipelago from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.  Read more...
