The city of Bacolod and the province of Negros Occidental is likely to forge a strong tie for progress which is beneficial to all. It is a good move by Bacolod City mayor-elect Monico O. Puentevella to make an audience with re-elected Governor Alfredo G. Marañon, Jr., and proposed a good relation as both will really benefitted from it. As both promises to bring opportunities for Bacolod and the province to their constituents is laudable no one ever did before while both erected their structures or edifice as seat of their governance.
Both are not new to each other as members of the House of Congress and they have one in common. Four big projects for Bacolod which Puentevella suggested will also beneficial to the province. As I see it, Bacolod City and the Province of Negros Occidental would be a strong power in Sports in the country as both have one thing in common –the Love of Sports where Unity is one of its main thrust and concept. Thanks to former Philippine Sports Commission commissioner Eric Loretizo who may have a hand in such a wonderful and historic ties of the city and the province.

Many things already happened. Now we cannot do it but think that we missed some important "person" to be part of the team. What I mean here was when the Negros First team was formed for the Philippine National Games (PNG), the athletes were either "picked" by their favorite coach who went with the team and not of their training, rather was based on their previous performance in Palarong Pambansa which turned out, they even seem surprise to be included, abnormal, because they seemed to lack proper training. In this case, I cannot question the wisdom of the coach because he knew what he was doing (be it better or worst), but as an observer, they cannot blame us when we say what we are looking at, based on what we observed.
When the Negros First team was sent to compete in PNG, to include boxers, the provincial government set aside budget for them hoping they will excel. But in athletics, only Maika De Oro performed well with boxing getting 4 silvers, three of them from our women team. I was saying this because they missed a potential gold medal performer in athletics in the person of Mary Anthony Diesto. Diesto was already planning to enroll at Negros Occidental High School, a provincial subsidiary school even before the Palarong Pambansa held in Dumaguete City. She wanted to compete in the PNG but no one has taken her. Maybe, the coaches failed to think of Diesto and failed to include in the lineup of their "favorite protegees", maybe thinking there is an allowance when they were included in the list.
