OBO notice of violation
set vs. Cabuga resort

The Office of the Building Official is expected to issue a notice of violation to businessman Rey Francis Cabuga involving the construction of a new resort in Brgy. Punta-Taytay, Bacolod City, that has violated laws of various government agencies.

Cabuga is also the owner of Metro Safari and Metro Inn that had also been issued notices of violations by the OBO.

Former Punta-Taytay Barangay Captain and now head of the Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office Rufino Alcala, together with Kagawad Glen Mark Pacheo and former Kagawad Angela Daguno, have filed a complaint against Cabuga's project that they said deprived fisherfolk and oyster growers access to the shoreline in Punta-Taytay.moremoremore

Birthday turns bloody

A birthday party in San Enrique, Negros Occidental, Wednesday turned into a bloody incident, after the celebrator allegedly stabbed his elder brother dead, and caused injuries to his cousin, during heated arguments.

Police investigations showed that the suspect was Nathaniel Ortega, the birthday celebrant. He was immediately arrested by a team of San Enrique police led by SPO1 Nillos Jr, who disarmed him of a 25-centimeter knife, Senior Inspector Romeo Vargas, town police chief, said yesterday.

Nante Ortega, 38, succumbed to a stab wound in the abdomen and was declared dead on arrival at the Don Salvador Benedicto Memorial Hospital in La Carlota City, Vargas said.moremoremore

PAMBI creates committee
to act on protected areas


The Protected Area Management Board yesterday approved a resolution creating an ad hoc committee to further study and formulate policies on the use of areas classified as multiple use zones in the Northern Negros Natural Park in 30 days.

It was also agreed that no further construction and development within the protected area of the NNNP will be allowed until the recommendations of the ad hoc committee are ready.

Salvador Benedicto Mayor Jose Max Ortiz, who proposed the resolution, said it was necessary to resolve the matter because, of the 11,000 hectares that comprises his town, about 8,000 to 9,000 hectares fall within the NNNP protected area.moremoremore
