NORECO 2 opposes
power rate hike, too


Another round of power rates adjustments is being opposed vehemently by the Negros Oriental 2 Electric Cooperative and four other electric cooperatives in Negros Island.

The opposition came on the heels of a petition filed by the Korean Electric Company before the Energy Regulatory Commission for a 44 centavo per kilowatt hour increase in power rates.

NORECO 2 acting manager Dionefred Macahig said the five electric cooperatives in the island are united against the increase even as the ERC is still conducting a public hearing.

Task force closes
boarding house


Task Force Sagarr yesterday padlocked a boarding house for doing business without permits from the Dumaguete City government.

Task Force Sagarr No. 11 team leader SF03 Danny Abad said the boarding house owned by Esmeralda Gomez that was closed, was just one of those given warnings and notices earlier by the City Legal Office.

Investigations showed that the boarding house of Gomez, with eight rooms, is rented by a certain Restituto Villafuerte of Amlan, who, in turn, accepted lodgers who are students of a nearby university.

Teves breaks silence
on charges filed


Negros Oriental Board Member Arnolfo Teves Jr. yesterday asked why his name easily crops up as an alleged mastermind.

He asked the police if they have investigated the maltreatment of the arrested suspects in a case he did not identify, where one of them sustained injuries in the face.

The Liga ng mga Barangay president said he believes something fishy is going. “At first, they said the target was Gov. Roel Degamo, and then it was the bingo milyunaryo coordinator Mauricio Sioco,” he said.
