Inaugurated to deliver quality service to the public soon were a new and well-furnished emergency room, operating room, delivery room, recovery room, laboratory and pediat- ric wards, all painted in candy colors attractive to the eye and spreading a spirit of wellness.
The provincial government also took the occasion as an opportunity to bless \ue000ve (5) new ambulances to be given to \ue000ve district hospitals in Villa- ba, Palompon, Carigara, Burauen and Hilongos. Unfortunately, only four made it because the one intended for Villaba met an accident along the way, reportedly at the highway along Hisumco at Montebello, Kananga, Leyte.

ORMOC CITY \u2013 The Human Re- source and Management (HRM) of\ue000cer of this city said that she cannot ascertain whether the man who is under the payroll of the City Mayor\u2019s Of\ue000ce is the same person who was reported arrested dur- ing a drug bust in Cebu recently.
This was the revelation of Ad- elaida H. Biaculo, HRMO, in an interview aired live over the Power FM station here this week.
Her pronouncement, howev- er, drew flak from listeners who slammed her on text messages to the radio anchors, asking how competent she was in her job that she does not make it her business to know her personnel\u2019s whereabouts.
In the same interview, Biaculo said that Ronnie T. Pocson, whose name appears on an appointment

ISABEL, LEYTE \u2013 An informa- tion and education campaign of a nickel smelting plant intending to locate in this town\u2019s industrial estate will have a continuance on May 24, after company rep- resentatives and community stakeholders failed to have a meeting of the minds during a public hearing held this Satur- day, March 20, at the basketball court in Brgy. Libertad.
The company is the Century Hua Guang Smelting Inc. with head office at Ayala Avenue, Makati City. They plan to oc- cupy at least 33.6 hectares of the 200-hectare government-owned Leyte Industrial Development Estate, and will reportedly be producing 100,000 metric tons of nickel per year.
The LIDE is already home to PASAR, the country\u2019s big- gest copper smelting plant, and Philphos.
It was not clear, however, dur- ing the meeting, how many people would be hired or employed for the company\u2019s operations.
Representing the company were Dr. Ed Alabastro, Engr. Al Cahayagan and Ms. Matilde J.
THERE IS a reason why the pump boys are dancing with their flashy red uniforms and smiles are painted on the faces of the staff members at the Ormoc Super Shell. It\u2019s the fuel service station\u2019s 7th anniversary!
Incorporated in the said 7th anniversary celebration are two promotional gigs namely the Pasasalamat Promo which runs from March 20-31, 2010, and Getting Free Fuel that runs from March 01-31 2010.
In the Pasasalamat Promo, a customer can get one kilo free rice for every P1,500 fuel purchased. However, the promo is exclusive to public utility vehicles only.
In the Free Fuel Promo, a motorist who purchases 4 liters of any participating Shell lubricant products can get free fuel coupon worth P 10.00 each.
The Ormoc Super Shell Service station is a family busi- ness of the Rizarris, founded by the couple Ernesto and Milagros L. Rizarri.
Daughter Monica Rizarri- Veloso, who manages the Ormoc Supershell Station, said they are forever grateful to Or- mocanons and loyal customers who continue to patronize their station and to their ever loyal staff Charity Parilla, Marita Oquias, Florenda Encelan, Gerda Abrantos, Charlo Judi- lla, Charre Nacional, Frelita Mangle, Ma. Fe Gonzales, Joy Almia, Crisami Monido and all the dancing pump attendants.
She explained that the pump boys, on the other hand, are dancing as a way of show- ing their customers that they cannot only pump gas but also make them smile. Monica said that the pump boys, as a sort of \u201cexercise\u201d and breaking monotony especially during slow hours, has taken to break dancing and hiphop. It was de- cided that for their anniversary celebration, the pump boys would show their bosses their moves and grooves before a sumptuous lunch.
The Rizarri family were at the Supershell in full force to show the pump boys\u2019 pre- sentation. By Rommel M.
The assured the audience that their company\u2019s operations, if permit- ted, will not cause air pollution.
On the other hand, around 50 concerned stakeholders led by Mayor Saturnino Medina Jr. him- self comprised the audience. Pres- ent also were representatives from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Lide Management Corp. manager Amos Calda, the pollution control of\ue000cers of PASAR and Philphos and other key people, aside from concerned residents.
Nelson Suralta, a concerned resident, passed around papers showing items he researched about nickel which claims it is carcinogenic. The paper also said that it could cause severe allergies and was even voted \u201cAllergen of the Year\u201d in 2008 by the American Contact Dermatitis Society.

For his part, Mayor Medina made it clear that he would only give the company the permits it needed if the community, in this case Brgy. Libertad, gives it a certi\ue000cate of social acceptability. He also urged company represen- tatives that the priority employ- ment should be residents of the village and outlying barangays of Mahayag and Matlang.
Social acceptance is a require- ment for the eventual release of an environmental compliance certi\ue000cate (ECC) which would be the company\u2019s Bible to follow, in order to protect and preserve the environment.
Company representatives, meanwhile, agreed for a resetting of the IEC to May 24, hoping that by then, they would have answers to the queries of the residents and their of\ue000cials. By Maridel Tan
Int\u2019l watchdog asks media to
report con\ue001ict in a way
leading to peace
TACLOBAN CITY \u2013 The Interna- tional Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), a UN-recognized and strategic partner of the Philippine National Red Cross (PNRC), this week held a seminar-workshop for media practitioners from all over the region on Reporting Con\ue001ict and International Humanitarian Law (IHL). The seminar was held last March 17,2010 at the Leyte Park Hotel, this city.
According to Giuseppe Pogliari, ICRC communication delegate, the seminar workshop was to instill in media the value of reporting that would lead to the resolution, rather than a provocative way which could lead to more con\ue001ict.
They also would want the media to understand what ICRC stands for, its advocacies and activities.
