Colon Street  – Senator Lorenzo G. Teves Street

Colon Street viewing Rizal Boulevard from C & L Bay View InnMany Dumagueteños still call the Senator Lorenzo G. Teves Street the old name, which was Colon Street, even the name was changed already in 2005. The street runs in east-west direction, starting from the Boulevard, between Surban Street and Pinili Street, going westwards, crossing Perdices, Real Street and Cervantes Street, going further, known as Colon Street Extension, all the way to Foundation University at the Banica River.

History of the Colon Street –  Sen. Lorenzo G. Teves Street

From the Office of Dumaguete City Council March 17 2005 Resolution no.88 series 2005

Back in 1948 Congressman of Province of Negros Oriental, Honorable Lorenzo G. Teves, sponsored House Bill No. 1922 which was approved and become Republic Act no. 327, “AN ACT CREATING THE CITY OF DUMAGUETE”. This was shortly after World War II and like the rest of the country, Dumaguete lay in ruins but with faith and vision, Congressman Teves was resolved for City hood. Today Dumaguete is a bustling and progressive City.

Congressman Lorenzo G. Teves, distinguished himself in the House of Representative. This had gained recognition nationwide which later rewarded him with a seat in the Senate—a great honor for the City of Dumaguete and the province of Negros Oriental. Congressman and later as Senator, Honorable Lorenzo G. Teves always worked, what was best for the City and the Province. For the many contribution to the life and history of Dumaguete City, his name should be memorialized.

To remember the man for his accomplishment by the Dumagueteños as well as to the constituents of the country, there is a need to rename a major street in the city after his name.

Resolution no.8 8/ Ordinance no.13

On motion of Councilor Harrison K. Gonzalez, duly seconded by Espiridion V. Catan, the City Council in session assembled, as it is hereby resolved, to enact the following ordinance:

Ordinance no.13 series 2005 an ordinance renaming Colon Street as Senator Lorenzo G. Teves Street is it ordained by the City Council of Dumaguete.

Public Viewing – FIFA World Cup in Brazil

The FIFA World Cup is after the Olympic Games the biggest sporting event of the world.

For the first time in Dumaguete will be a public viewing of the first 2 or 3 daily matches on the Rizal Boulevard. Only the 6:00 am game can’t be shown due to upcoming traffic and street-noise.

While the games are to a rather unholy time with the first always starting at midnight and the last ending around 8:00am, there might be still some guys interested or drop by while doing their nightly exercise. Of course drinks and snacks will be also available.

International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima

History of International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima

The world-famous International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima was sculpted in 1947 by Jose Thedim, based on the description of Sr. Lucia, one of the three young seers who saw Our Lady each month from May to October 1917 in Fatima, Portugal.

On October 13, 1947, in the presence of some 150,000 pilgrims, the statue was blessed by the Bishop of Leiria at Fatima, Portugal to be the pilgrim, the traveler.

Sent out to bring the Message of Fatima to the world, the International Pilgrim Virgin Statue has traveled the world many times, visiting more than 100 countries, including Russia and Red China, bringing the great message of hope, “the peace plan from heaven,” to millions of people. Many miracles and signal graces are reported wherever the statue travels including shedding tears many times.
