Also grabbing individual golds were swimmer Julius Angulo in 100-meter breast stroke, and Bonnie Lumbao and Angelo Tatad in chess.

Although the delegation was budgeted with P3.7 million, it was not enough to provide for adequate training and uniforms. The number of athletes were slashed, especially those with little chance of earning medals, while some of those who did join the training did so without uniforms. The two-week training likewise was inadequate, according to some coaches and trainors. (with a report by RB Manlangit/PIA CamNorte)

In a 20-page ruling, the SC en banc said the enforcement of the small-scale mining law to the provincial government is subject to the supervision, control and review of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. The SC, through Associate Justice Diosdado M. Peralta, said under the Administrative Code of 1987, the DENR is empowered to carry out the constitutional mandate of controlling and supervising the exploration, development, utilization, and conservation of the country's natural resources. Hence, the enforcement of small-scale mining law in the provinces is made subject to the supervision, control and review of the DENR under the Local Government Code of 1991, while the People's Small-Scale Mining Act of 1991 provides that the People's Small-Scale Mining Program is to be implemented by the DENR Secretary in …
