homes in Tanjay: PNP
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

Informal settlers in Tanjay City, Negros Oriental, yesterday voluntarily began taking apart their homes after the court sheriff, accompanied by police, served a writ of demolition for them to vacate the area owned by private individuals.

Sixty-two homes of around 250 families are covered by the ejection cases filed by Hilario Comcom Sr. against Emmie Banogon, et al, before the Municipal Trial Circuit Court of Tanjay.

Chief Insp. Teodorico Picardal, Tanjay police chief, said they counted around 82 houses in the area.

BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

Government officials, medical and health practitioners and private groups yesterday said they support moves to establish breastfeeding stations at business establishments in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental.

Provincial assistant administrator, Arnel Francisco, said the breastfeeding station is in line with the Millennium Development Goals of the Philippines that targets the reduction of child mortality by year 2015.

He said the provincial government has asked the Sangguniang Panlalawigan to propose an ordinance for the establishment of a breastfeeding facility at the Capitol for working mothers.

LTO to issue modern plates
to stop carnapping

New vehicles will soon get “modern plates” designed to stop carnapping, a Central Visayas transport official said yesterday.

Land Transportation Office 7 Director Raul Aguilos said the agency will issue the modern number plates to new vehicles starting September 1.

Aguilos said the modern plate was designed to solve carnapping, unauthorized engine replacement, vehicle smuggling and colorum operation, among other illegal activities.
