Fifty-five students from 18 towns and cities of Negros Oriental are beneficiaries of the government’s Students Grants-in-aid Program for Poverty Alleviation, and enrolled at the Negros Oriental State University.

The program was launched yesterday at the NORSU gym, with regional directors Mercedita Jabagat and Chona Mantilla of the departments of Social Welfare and Development and Labor, program specialist Josefino Ronquillo of the Commission on Higher Education, city, town and school officials, the scholars and their parents.

Jabagat said the scholars are in good hands, and that the grant is in line with the 4Ps project of the national government to help alleviate poverty, increase the number of graduates from among the poor families and increase the rate of employment.

Scenes from Dumaguete City and Negros Oriental will be the focus of the South Pacific photo workshop of award-winning American photojournalist and author, Eli Reed, to be held at the Foundation University in Dumaguete starting today, a press release from organizers said.

The workshop will be participated in by 14 photographers from the United States and the Philippines, who will do photo walks during the week-long activity, that aims to promote visual arts and present the reality to the locals through photography, the press release also said.

Reed is a former Nieman Fellow at Harvard University, who was in Negros Oriental earlier this year for an exploratory visit. He will talk about vision and style, photographic thought processes and execution, and developing the skills and instincts that improve photography.

PRO-7 cops
monitoring fake money

The Regional Intelligence Division 7 is monitoring another counterfeiter operating in a northern barangay in Cebu City following the arrest of an alleged maker of fake Philippine and foreign currency.

Supt. Pablo Labra II, acting chief of RID 7, said this person, whom he did not identify, has the capacity to produce fake bills like Richard Uy.

Uy, 65, was arrested with P2-million worth of P1,000 and 100 US dollar bills in a buy-bust in Barangay Banilad last Monday night.
