“Update: No more Brownouts in Guimaras?” Can pigs fly? Guess I’ll find out. Another report, this time from The Daily Guardian, answers some questions about an earlier article I posted from the Panay News. Guimelco, our local “power” company on our island province is securing a 100 million peso loan to improve facilities and services in Guimaras.
“No more Brownouts in Guimaras?” Was some reporter over at the Panay News attempting to get their name entered into a “Tokhang” drop box? “Operation Tokhang” is the Philippine National Police’s campaign against illegal drugs.
The P14.50 (29¢) per kilowatt-hour rate of Guimaras Electric Cooperative (Guimelco) is a burden to Guimaras consumers. Add to that cost, the regular frequent power interruptions. No wonder this situation is turning off potential investors.
THEREFORE let it be known throughout the universe. I was right about something! And the fact that the Prince of our Province echoes my exact sentiments is rather shocking. Yes, dear reader, “Guimaras Governor Gumarin’s Guimelco Gripes” is a prodigious post that makes me happier than a turd in a toilet bowl.
UPDATE ON THE LATEST SEA TRAGEDY
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? With the recent tragic loss of nine lives on the Tawash, the Coast Guard is cracking down. At least for now. Crumpled clothes or not.
Had the pleasure of again meeting the Honorable Governor of Guimaras, Felipe Hilan A. Nava, MD, who graciously allowed my asawa to take my photograph with him at the recent Mutya Ng Guimaras 2011 held at the Provincial Gymnasium this past Friday in San Miguel, Jordan municipality of Guimaras.
