Onli in Iloilo City, the 18th performer out of 18 school divisions in Western Visayas in National Achievement Test (NAT) for senior elementary and high school students. The medium size acacia aure (Japanese acacia) growing in the islands of the B. Aquino Highway, have been uprooted to be replaced by African Royal Palms some of which are wilting under the summer heat today. Metro Manila is pampering its acaia aure trees in its highways from south to north noting that the species is efficient in sequestering toxic gases from the air of the city -- heavy metals, carbon gases, methane -- according to MMDA. They also work as natural coolants. In Iloilo City, the trees were planted since the post-EDSA I incumbencies yet of Mayor Rodolfo Ganzon (1988 - 1991) and Mayor Mansing Malabor (1992 - 2001). The city government took care of those trees until it got trapped in the beautification binge of a certain Franklin Drilon, allegedly, president of the Philippines Senate, and a certain Jed Patrick Mabilog, also alle ...

Drilon slams river summit opponents BY PRINCE GOLEZ-Senate Reporter ILOILO City – “Propaganda without any basis” was how Ilonggo Senator Franklin Drilon described the claim of cause-oriented groups that the 1st Philippine International River Summit to be held in Iloilo City next week is nothing but an attempt to “greenwash” the real problems of the Iloilo River. The summit aims to gather the best practices around the world on how to conserve, revive and preserve rivers. It is not an attempt to mislead the people, Drilon stressed. The senator also enumerated the steps that were so far taken to revive the polluted Iloilo River. One of these was clearing the Iloilo River – actually an arm of the sea – of dilapidated ships marooned or have long been abandoned by their owners. “We have also dredged the mouth of the river. We will continue to dredge it. We will be acquiring more dredging machines,” the senator told Panay News. Drilon also hopes that the construction of a 1.2-kilometer esplanad ...
