NORSU increases tuition
BY MARICAR ARANAS

The Negros Oriental State University has increased its tuition by 30 percent, or P1,000, for school year 2013-2014, its president, Don Vicente Real, said yesterday.

Real said the increase was proposed after a consultation with the school stakeholders, and was approved by the Commission on Higher Education.

Students who will enroll in specialized courses, like the Bachelor of Arts in geology, forestry, agriculture, engineering and pharmacy, will pay P8,085 per semester, and for BS Pharmacy, P9,135 each semester.

CHR endorses petition against LTO-
Dumaguete chief, others

BY JUDY F. PARTLOW & JUANCHO GALLARDE

The Commission on Human Rights in Negros Oriental has endorsed to the Land Transportation Office a petition filed by members of transport groups and other individuals in Dumaguete City and nearby towns, calling for an investigation on the alleged abusive practices of the LTO-Dumaguete District Office chief and other personnel.

CHR special investigator Jess Cañete said that, based on the narrative of the complainants in a petition addressed to his office, it appears that the complaints against LTO-Dumaguete chief Eugene Gador and Law Enforcement Traffic Adjudication Services-designate Primo Arbon III, are valid, even if they are still unverified.

Cañete said a certain Igmedio Duran had sent him via postal mail the petition, with 136 signatures, that calls for an investigation of alleged corruption and “erroneous implementation of traffic laws” by the respondents.

School Board to pay
tuition of 264 scholars

BY MARCAR ARANAS

The Local School Board of Valencia town, Negros Oriental, will shoulder the tuition fees amounting to P1.810 million of its 264 scholars enrolled in the two universities in Dumaguete City for the first semester.

Negros Oriental State University has 213 scholars, and Foundation University, 51.

The LSB decision was issued after Valencia mayor-elect Edgar Teves, in a letter dated May 16, told the presidents of FU and NORSU to stop the scholarship grants, as they will resume only after he assumes office on July 1.
