Samaritans pool two-month fund for ailing nurse

The kindness of strangers, high school batch mates and an aunt who declined to be identified will give 23-year old Sheryl Cacay Degay a two-month respite from the gnawing fear of missing her twice-a-week dialysis treatment for kidney failure.

Degay, ninth of 11 children of a 71-year old farmer and carpenter, came out the other week to tell her condition, hoping Samaritans out there would reach out to her. The graduate nurse admitted her family had long been exhausted – especially financially -, and groping for support for her survival.

Last Thursday, she e-mailed how her high school batch mates (Audie,

Melody, Arrianne, Brenda, Graal, Banagi, Lyn, Esam, Audie, et. al ) pooled and delivered to her P1,800. They all belong to Class 2005 of St. Mary's School in Sagada, Mt. Province.

Mayor prays no hitch will mar cjhdevco rental payment

BAGUIO CITY – Mayor Mauricio Domogan is keeping his fingers crossed that the Camp John Hay Development Corporation (CJHDevCo) will settle its Camp John Hay rental obligations with the Bases Conversion Development Authority without any hitch.

Although he expressed confidence that the developer will comply with its obligation to settle part of the mounting lease obligation by May 31 as mandated by the revised Memorandum of Agreement covering the lease, the mayor warned that a deadlock will result to more arbitration issues that will mean further delay in the lease payment.

"We have our best expectation and we did our best effort so we hope that they will comply so we can also collect our share for the project we intend to pursue, but if something happens and the developer fails to pay, then it will again go to arbitration which (is what) we do not like to happen," the mayor said.
