DepEd says Neg. Occ.
lacks 784 classrooms


Negros Occidental public schools have enough teachers now but are short by 784 classrooms for school year 2013-14, Provincial Schools Superintendent Juliet Jeruta said yesterday.

They are short by 483 classrooms for kindergarten, 129 for elementary and 172 for high school, she said.

The national government has allocated funds for the building of 68 more classrooms in Negros Occidental and private groups have also been helping DepEd meet the backlog, Jeruta added.moremoremore

‘CCTV catches
3 guards stealing'

Three security guards are now in jail, for their alleged involvement in a robbery Friday at the public market of Kabankalan City that was captured by a closed circuit television camera, police chief Supt. Calixto Mabugat said yesterday.

Detained at the police lock-up cell were Jaime Linas, Rene Estremera and Octavio Gascon, all members of the E and R Security Agency, who had been hired by the city government to guard the public market, Mabugat said.

Mabugat said the three were arrested by a police team headed by PO3 Rafael Santa Ana IV, in connection with the robbery incident at the Marasigan Store located at the new market.moremoremore

A. Lingkod still hopeful

Partylist group Abang Lingkod, whose registration was cancelled with finality by the Commission on Elections Friday, is still very positive that the Supreme Court will decide in its favor and reverse the COMELEC ruling, its secretary general Ben Solilapsi said yesterday.

The COMELEC count of the Abang Lingkod votes shows that it has garnered at least 250,000, so far, to entitle it to one seat in the House, if it had not been disqualified.

This would mean its first nominee, Negrense Stephen Paduano, alias Carapali Lualhati, former national commander of the Revolutionary Proletarian Army- Alex Boncayao Brigade, would gain a seat in Congress.moremoremore
