The distribution by the City Social Welfare and Development Office would resume today. According to Mayor Jerry Treñas, the Development Bank of the Philippines ran out of cash, the city government did not have enough cashiers, and that social distancing was difficult to observe during the releasing. “Kailangan nilang ipaliwanag kung ano-ano ang mga problema at balakid kung bakit ‘di sila umabot sa deadline,” said Secretary Eduardo Año. ILOILO City – Of the 79,215 target beneficiaries of the national government’s Social Amelioration Program (SAP) here, only 44,652 have so far received P6,000 cash assistance each as of May 10, the deadline set for the monetary aid’s distribution. DILG earlier said it would issue show cause orders to LGUs with “very poor performance” in the distribution of the emergency subsidy. Treñas ordered the barangay captains of 180 villages to identify those qualified. The mayor also disclosed that children of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program households not included in the target SAP beneficiaries may now be accommodated, citing a new memorandum order from the Department of Social Welfare and Development. He said there are 13,000 slots for them. In the whole Western Visayas, a total of 129 LGUs successfully met the deadline, data from DILG showed. It would be up to the DILG central office what to do with these LGUs, said Iglesia. He, however, confirmed having reported to the DILG central office those local government units (LGUs) in the region which failed to beat the deadline. “Ang finance committee nagapangayo sang tiempo nga i-reconcile ang tanan nga figures,” Treñas said. For his part, Regional Director Ariel Iglesia of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) said the agency was allowing the continued distribution of the SAP cash assistance even beyond the deadline. The number corresponded to 88.77 percent of the total 133 LGUs in the region. “Tuloy-tuloy lang ang pamimigay dahil kailangan ng ating mga constituents,” said Iglesia.

This half proportion venue capacity also applies to salons, barber shops, other personal care services, food retail establishments, dine-in restaurants, and fast food chains. Cadiao further emphasized the value of business relations between Iloilo and Antique provinces. Moreover, Category III industries allowed to operate are financial services, Business Process Outsourcing offices, legal, accounting and auditing firms, scientific, technical and non-leisure services, and wholesale and retail establishments. “I was thinking we should really revive our economy. I want Antiqueños to go back to work and I’d like the businesses to reopen but with protocol, of course,” said Cadiao. Under the governor’s Executive Order 78, among those establishments permitted to operate for Category I include the agriculture and fishery industries, food manufacturing and food supply chains, logistics sector, health-related institutions, information technology and telecommunication companies, and media industry. “I want Antiqueños to go back to work and I’d like the businesses to reopen but with protocol, of course,” says Gov. Rhodora Cadiao. PIA The governor expressed her enthusiasm of wanting Antiqueños to return to work and for businesses to reopen as the local economy has been greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. As for Category IV, the operations of establishments dedicated for amusement, gaming, fitness, and kids and tourism industries are allowed but at a maximum of 50 percent operational capacity. Meanwhile, only those hotels and other accommodation establishments that have been accredited as provided by law and relevant issuances of the Department of Tourism and the Department of the Interior and Local Government are allowed to operate. Industries belonging to Category II such as mining and other manufacturing industries, export and electronic commerce, delivery, repair and maintenance, and housing and office services were also given the go signal to open.

Even if the Reds go on a winning streak in September, there is little chance that they can move out of 4th place. In fact, right now they are struggling to stay ahead of the Cubs. A lot of questions need to be answered during the off season.Will they sign all of their top pitchers who are in the last year of their contracts? They can probably get 3 or 4 good players/prospects for Cueto and/or Latos. It will be very hard to give either of them the money they can demand on the open market. They also have to decide who is going to play left field. Will they give Heisey his chance or will they move Frasier to left field and play Negron at 3rd base?It does not seem that there are a lot of prospects in their minor league system. Tucker Barnhart is the top prospect, but he is a catcher and they already have two good ones on the roster now. There will be a lot of high-level meetings before Spring Training begins in February of 2015. Another possible move is to get a new General Manager to replace Walt Jocketty. We will have to wait and see.
