return from Libya
BY CARLA GOMEZ
Negrenses were among the 766 overseas Filipino workers repatriated from conflict-torn Libya, who arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Saturday night and yesterday morning.
The first group of 419 OFWs, who arrived at the NAIA Terminal 2 at 10 p.m. Saturday, included four Negrenses. The second batch arrived at 3:45 a.m. yesterday.
The Board of Directors of the Bacolod City Water District said the contention of Baciwa general manager Juliana Carbon that she is a permanent employee has no legal basis and that, she is, in fact, holding the position without a valid appointment.
Carbon had said earlier that she is a permanent employee and a career service executive, and she is also a holder of the plantilla position of general manager.
Directors Lawrence Villanueva. Lorendo Dilag and Marichi Ramos, wrote the Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod on August 15, to clarify the basis of its Resolution No. 08-14-907 which states “the Memorandum Circular 012014 of the Civil Service Commission dated January 23, 2014 which adopted the guidelines of operative facts…the permanent appointments issued to the general manager incumbents before June 5, 2013, on the basis of CSC Resolution No, 06-01052 and CSC MC No. 12, Series of 2006, should be respected.”

DENR on alert for animals
from Africa due to Ebola
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources in Region 7 has placed its wildlife monitoring units on full alert after the World Health Organization declared the deadly Ebola virus an international concern, a government press release said.
“This is a preventive measure as we are trying to stop the entry of imported wild animals and exotic pets, particularly those coming from Ebola-hit countries of Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia,” DENR 7 executive director Isabelo Montejo said.
He issued the memorandum, after DENR Secretary Ramon Paje directed the four Provincial Environment and Natural Resources officers and eight Community Environment and Natural Resources officers to monitor the possible illegal entry and smuggling of wild animals from Africa.
