CHEERS photo of the week

Sounds of silence

The nerve wracking sound of chainsaws which used to shatter the once quiet neighbourhood along the R. Kangleon National Road in Barangay Mambajao have been silenced. We complained to barangay Captain Cirillo Maningo about it but the sound got even louder. It was only after we reported the matter to City Treasurer Eliseo Costillas that the deafening sounds became hardly noticeable. We later learned that he dropped by the lumber shops on his way home that evening, and told the owners to either muffle the sound of their chainsaws, or move somewhere else. Now that’s public service! Maraming Salamat Kumpare.
