Shooting suspect yields
after hours of negotiation

A suspect in the shooting incident yesterday afternoon in Valencia town, Negros Oriental, finally surrendered after hours of negotiations with his aunt who allegedly refused to turn him over to the police.

Valencia police chief, Insp. Virgilio Otod, identified the suspect as Bobby Valenciano, 28, a resident of Bacong, Negros Oriental, who is now detained at the town police station.

Police reports said that some workers of the Phil South construction firm claimed that at least two men fired at them at a road leading to the firm’s quarry site in Palinpinon, Valencia.

Millions of pesos in financial aid
for Buglasan Festival ‘unsettled’

Millions of pesos in financial assistance from the provincial government for the yearly Buglasan Festival have not been liquidated yet, Negros Oriental provincial accountant, Teddy Reyes, said recently.

Reyes confirmed yesterday that his office had sent a notice in June this year to the Negros Oriental Business and Development Foundation to submit the liquidation reports on the financial assistance given to the Buglasan Festival for the years 2008, 2009 and 2010.

He, however, could not give the exact amount involved.

Teacher aide
training approved


Mayor Valente Yap of Bindoy, Negros Oriental, said he is interested in accepting the offer for a short-term call center training program for teacher aides in his town.

The Metro Dumaguete College has offered an extended short-term education program to the towns of Negros Oriental to help out-of-school youths and high school graduates, who cannot afford a college education.

Yap said he will discuss the MDC offer with the members of the Sangguniang Bayan for allocation of a scholarship fund for students interested in the training.
