The Panay News reported last Sunday that Guimaras Motorboat Trip Shortage Strands Passengers. Guimaras, home of the sweetest mangoes in the world, is the island province we call home. Jordan Mayor Ruben Corpuz wants to know why there aren’t enough boats operating.
My asawa was in the front passenger seat of our Aurora Blue Ford Ranger suffering from an extreme abdominal pain attack. The Provincial Hospital in Guimaras, our home province, was unable to deal with the medical emergency.

THE Transportation Management and Traffic Regulation Office (TMTRO) nabbed at least 35 violators this past Monday, June 1, 2017 in Iloilo City. It was the first day cops were enforcing the new speed limit law in the “City of Love.” Iloilo Speeders Could Get 6-Month Jail Sentence.

Are life jackets crumpling lawyer’s suits on the Iloilo-Guimaras pump boats? Did a court in Guimaras prohibit the wearing of life jackets in motorized banca boats to help the lawyers prevent this?
