A LABORER was stabbed and wounded by his older brother following an argument in their home in barangay El Prado, Boljoon town, southern Cebu on Tuesday night.

Edwin Romaguera, 30, was stabbed in the abdomen.

The suspect, Romeo Romaguera, 33, surrendered to the police after the incident.

Police said Romeo got irked when Edwin used his sickle without his permission.

Romeo confronted Edwin about using his farm tool and that led to a heated argument.

While arguing, Romeo took a knife and stabbed Edwin.

Beating a path to Boljoon


Visitors to Cebu usually troop to the cities or the tried-and-tested spots on the island of Mactan. They don’t know what they’re missing. You don’t have to go where guide books and travel shows tell you to.

Many people forget that travel is partly an adventure—and you can’t really call yourself “adventurous” if you don’t at least make an attempt to go off the proverbial beaten path. There lies the difference between a tourist and a traveler. Not that you can’t be both.

For Glenn Aguilar, its not the bike that matters.

Using a borrowed motorbike, Aguilar flaunted the skills that netted him 11 national titles as he ruled the 14th leg of the MS Motosuit Motocross Series dubbed the 1st Hon. Zigfed Povadora Duterte Motocross Challenge held last Saturday in barangay Caduawan, Tabogon town, northern Cebu.

Aguilar, who had to borrow Siegfred Ornopia’s bike, bagged the expert crown, spoiling the return of Irwin Uypitching of Rusi Rusco Team, who settled for first runner-up. Paolo Inoc settled for second runner-up.


The Gold Chain from Boljoon

On March 25, 2009, one of the most important finds in Philippine archaeology was made in Boljoon, Cebu, when a 1.1-meter necklace was uncovered from one of the burials that were excavated there. The necklace, worn on a probable female burial coded as Burial 43.

Jose G. Santiago and Dante Posadas (of the National Museum) and I began the brushing the neckline of the burial to search for artifacts that day. We were not disappointed. For a long gold loop-in-loop chain (reportedly called “inahas” or snake-like by 16th century natives according to Spanish missionaries) glinted like it was made only yesterday.

CEBU CITY, Philippines – Resort owners and event organizers planning to stage “bikini open” type activities in Cebu province during the Holy Week face stiff penalties for doing so, Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia warned Monday.

The governor pointed to the Provincial Women’s Code that prohibits indecent activities like bikini contests since it “humiliates women.”

Companies, which insist in holding these programs, will face possible revocation of their business permits and a fine of P5,000 or both.

The gold jewelry unearthed by archaeologists from the church compound in Boljoon town, southern Cebu, belong to the Philippine government, not the Archdiocese of Cebu, said archaeologist Jose Eleazar “Jobers” Bersales.

“The artifacts are properties of the Philippine state according to the National Museum law,” Bersales said.

Republic Act 8492 or the National Museum Act of 1998 states that “as a scientific institution, the (National) Museum shall continue to conduct basic and systematic research programs combining integrated laboratory and field work in anthropology and archeology, geology and paleontology, botany and zoology.”
