New angle eyed in slay-try
on Bayawan City councilor


Task Force Enigma, the team of investigators in Negros Oriental, is looking to another angle in the slay-try on Councilor Victoriano Alabastro of Bayawan City, Negros Oriental on Friday last week.

Provincial police director, Senior Supt. Rey Lyndon Lawas, yesterday said investigation by the task force has revealed that the attack on Alabastro at the Negros Oriental State University-Bayawan-Sta. Catalina campus, could be related to sensitive cases he had handled as a lawyer outside Negros Oriental. He, however, said this is not yet conclusive.

Alabastro teaches part-time at the NORSU Bayawan-Sta. Catalina campus, and had once served as city legal officer of Bayawan.

BFP regl chief leads
safety inspection


Bureau of Fire Protection officials in Region 7, led by regional director Fire Sr. Supt. Ma. Luisa Hadjula, have so far found only minimal violations of the country’s Fire Safety Code during their inspection of universities, schools, dormitories and boarding houses in Dumaguete City.

The inspection, held Sunday and Monday, is part of the agency’s Oplan Balik Eskwela, to ensure the fire safety of occupants, especially students, in these particular establishments, Hadjula said.

Negros Oriental is the third province in Central Visayas to be visited by the BFP regional director, who will proceed to Siquijor.

Farmers, fisherfolk to
get rice subsidy

The Department of Social Welfare and Development has started a short-term rice subsidy program for small-scale farmers and fisherfolk in Negros Oriental, a Philippine Information Agency press release said.

Selected small-scale farmers in 18 local government units identified by DSWD are expected to benefit from the program, which is implemented through a cash-for-training and cash-for-work basis, Aileen Lariba, DSWD-7 Information Officer, said.

Program’s beneficiaries will be required to undergo a four-day training. They will be taught innovative ways in fishing and farming to help them in their livelihood, Lariba said.
