Most of P27M not paid to
Negros poll workers


Most of the P27,168,000 due to teachers, and members of the 33 boards of canvassers and their support staff, who served in the May 13 elections in Negros Occidental and Bacolod City, has not yet been paid to them, provincial elections supervisor Wil Arceño said yesterday.

Arceño said that, while some of 6,132 teachers who manned the precincts have been paid, the payment for the majority is still being processed.

Some teachers who have ATM cards have already been paid, while the names of those without such cards, who have not been paid, have been sent to Manila so they can be paid through a manual payroll system, he said.moremoremore

NVC addressing shortage,
building 120 classrooms

The Negrense Volunteers for Change, in partnership with various groups, is targeting the construction of 120 more classrooms this year, its president, Millie Kilayko, said yesterday.

This is intended to help the Department of Education meet the shortfall in classrooms in public schools on Negros Island, Kilayko said.

“We're targeting another 120 this year with the same partners and new ones, specifically Filipinos overseas,” she also said.moremoremore

Guv: Nab gambling big fish

Reelected Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday ordered the police to also arrest the financiers and operators of illegal gambling, following the apprehension of 22 violators in five days of their intensified operations, especially in northern Negros.

They should also go for the big ones and not just the bet solicitors, Marañon said, apparently referring to the financiers and operators.

Senior Supt. Ricardo de la Paz, officer-in-charge of the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office, yesterday said their campaign against illegal gambling has been intensified further, in compliance with the order of Marañon.moremoremore
