Bishop calls for prayers

Negrenses in Japan now live in constant fear of more big quakes and are staying prepared as tremors continue to rock the country.

In Bacolod City, meanwhile, Bishop Vicente Navarra yesterday called on the faithful to continue to pray for the people of Japan and for the safety of the Negrenses living there.

Negrense chef Enrique Linaja Gonzaga, who is in Tokyo, yesterday said “We have been rocked and rocked” by aftershocks and low intensity tremors since the big one Friday.moremoremore

Police tap Army’s
help vs. Ayalin


The police have tapped the services of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, especially their intelligence networking, to hasten the capture of bloodbath suspect Noel Ayalin, who remains elusive, a week after he went on a killing spree in Brgy. Kapitan Ramon, Silay City, and shot dead four barangay officials and injured three others.

Senior Supt. Allan Guisihan, provincial police director of Negros Occidental,  yesterday said the possible involvement of Army soldiers and government militiamen in the manhunt operations will be on a “request basis”.

Guisihan said he has designated Supt. Leo Irwin Agpangan, deputy provincial director for Administration, to lead the task group that will conduct the manhunt operations against Ayalin, who, he believes, is still hiding in the area.moremoremore

Bacolod cops start drive
on PUVs with no permits


The Bacolod City Police Office Traffic Management Unit will launch a citywide campaign against public utility vehicles without business permits effective today.

Chief Insp. Levy Pangue, head of the BCPO-TMU, said yesterday that TMU will deploy personnel to the three exit points in the city to bar jeepneys, tricycles and taxis without permits from entering the main thoroughfares of Bacolod from 8 a.m.  until 6 p.m. today.

This campaign is in line with the city’s tax ordinance, as public utility vehicles without permits are not paying taxes to the local government of Bacolod, Pangue said.moremoremore
