VG: Degamo absence
sign of no support
BY CARLA GOMEZ
The absence of Negros Oriental Gov. Roel Degamo Saturday from a forum in Mabinay on the proposed Negros Island Region obviously shows he is still not supporting the move, Negros Occidental Vice Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson said yesterday.
“His absence would say that he is maintaining his position against the one island one region,” the vice governor said.

Solon pushes for P2.5 billion
airport relocation in Bacong
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW
Rep. Pryde Henry Teves (Neg. Or., 3rd District) is pushing for the relocation of the Dumaguete-Sibulan airport to a new site in Bacong town, about 10 minutes drive south of the capital of Negros Oriental.
The proposal is contrary to an earlier one designed to extend and expand the present one in Sibulan town, that Teves says has many disadvantages. He is proposing a new airport in Combado, Bacong, with about 200 hectares and a 2.5 kilometer runway, that will not cut across the national highway.
Teves said the initial expansion project of the Dumaguete-Sibulan airport is not feasible, as studies by the Japanese International Coordinating Agency and the Korean International Coordinating Agency have shown.
