Name new Mactan bridge after Fernan - Weigel
Mayor Ernest Weigel Jr. favors naming the 2nd Mandaue-Mactan bridge as Senate
Preseident Marcelo Fernan bridge.
The late senate president deserved to be honored for being a great Cebuano, Weigel said.
Fernan was also Chief of Justice of the Supreme court, making him the lone Filipino to lead both the Senate and the Judiciary.
Wigel said he was invited to attend the congressional hearing on the proposed bill naming the bridge after Fernan, which is set on Feb 3.
Meanwhile, Weigel plans to name the circumferential road in the city after President Carlos Garcia since not a single road is named after the late president.
President Garcia was responsible for making Lapu-Lapu, then called Opon, a
city. He also had a hand in the creation of the Mactan-Cebu International Airport,
House Majority Leader Eduardo Gullas and Senator John Osmena filed separate bills for the naming of the new Mandaue-Mactan bridge as Sente President Marcelo Fernan bridge.
In House Bill 7928, describes Fernan as one of the greatest Cebuanos and the
only Filipino in recent history to have occupied the highest positions in two
separate branches of government as Chief Justice and Senate President.
Senator Osmena files a bill stating that to name the bridge after Fernan would be a fitting tribute to the man.

I have a sad news for everyone. Mike Granthom (Marilou's husband) got killed in a car accident last Sunday, January 9. This happened on their drive back home to Wyoming from Salt Lake City. They drove Noy Camilo to the airport in Salt Lake. Noy Camilo was supposed to fly to L.A. and meet up with Dodong and fly together to Cebu to attend the Sinulog. Mayou drove from Salt Lake. She hit "block ice" and their vehicle rolled over. Mayou and the 2 children got away with minor injuries. Mike suffered severe head trauma and did not make it. The funeral was today. Please pray for the whole family in this time of sorrow.
