Bacolod has good roads now...except Sum-ag

-A A +A

Thursday, October 4, 2012

RESIDENTS of Sum-ag in Bacolod City are still in a quandary why their highway that links the cities of Bacolod and Bago has remained unattended by whoever is responsible and accountable to the people.


Even drivers plying the two cities daily are still asking each other why the DPWH continue to pour sand on every crater of the road while pregnant women travel through this abortion road. It's a big shame to government that nothing has been done for the past three years now.



If there is any political face who is supposed to do the job for the people of the city and those who pass thru this Sum-ag highway, an old man in the coffee station prophesied that the political face will surely lose in the election if ever he or she runs. And the DPWH is at thy mercy of the politicos to do or not to do a job.


Even if those responsible will catch up to repair the road of Sum-ag, the insurance man surely the person will still lose the election because service is not sincere but self-serving.


This is to also remind business establishments in any part of this country that the part of the road in front of the building they lease or own are prohibited to be reserved for their own parking. The building owner has to put an easement portion for parking. Otherwise, building tenants are not allowed to block off other drivers from parking.


In Bacolod at Luzuriaga street near the City Hall, a bank is blocking off the roads for their clients' parking. This is not allowed and BTAO should call their attention. If it is for their armoured then a brief double parking could be tolerated.


It's MassKara Festival time once again and the public plaza is full of kiosks. This is festival mood again and surely police work should be beefed up. Congratulations to Ely Tajanlangit and his team for making the festival always festive as always.


On October 20, more than two hundred big bikers will zoom the roads of Bacolod to join the Visayas Confederation Unity Ride hosted by Thunderbugs Motorcycle Club led by its Chairman Manolet Lamata and Club President Bingbong Escamilla. This is another attraction for Bacolod and Negrenses who will see the different elegant big bikes owned by motorcycle club members.


Now, it is clear that it will be a political fever where the challenges are Bing vs. Anthony; then Newks vs Thady; and Vladi vs. Greg. This is in Bacolod. A close encounter in Iloilo is the heavyweight bout being watched by the Ilonggos - the strong challenge between incumbent Jed Mabilog and media PR business man young Rommel Ynion who has succeeded in bringing together the camps of DOJ Raul Gonzalez, former Mayor Mansing Malabor, the Ganzon camp and its Timawa followers, Jamora clan, and more. Now this is the big fight to watch. Good luck then.
