BACOLOD City – Athletes from Western Visayas are expected to double their efforts to snatch the championship title from Central Visayas in next year’s National Private Schools Athletic Association (PRISAA) Meet.

Roger Banzuela, the region’s sports technical director, said they will “make some adjustments in its sports program and events to make up with its third place finish this year.”

The 2014 National PRISAA will be held in April in Tagum City in Southern Mindanao – the fourth placer in this year’s competition.

Western Visayas settled for third place in the over-all ranking of the recently concluded National PRISAA in Lingayen, Pangasinan with 61 gold, 60 silver and 86 bronze medals.

But it was adjudged champion in secondary division with 46 gold, 26 silver and 13 bronze medals.

The region’s women athletes ruled in athletics, volleyball, chess, table tennis, taekwondo, and vocal solo, while men dominated the football and badminton.

Central Visayas defended its championship title by harvesting 77 gold, 50 silver and 29 bronze medals. CALABARZON became its closest rival with 68 gold, 30 silver and 49 bronze medals. (PNA)

Certain groups are collecting six million signatures to force passage of a law that would ban pork barrel from the hands of Congress. Since the Congress is tainted with the abuse of public money through the system of fund allocation to members of Congress, the signatories intend to use the People’s Initiative for such a law.

Learned helplessness

IF THERE is widespread indifference among Ilonggos on the abuses and anomalies taking place in our city government, it’s not really because they don’t care anymore, or are blind to the truth. This is more the result of what is known as “learned helplessness”. It describes a situation where people feel there’s nothing they could do to change things. Corruption has become institutionalized in Iloilo City, so why bother? Read more...
