Complaint filed vs. Lapore
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
A candidate for a seat in the Central Negros Electric Cooperative Board, who lost against Ceneco president Arnel Lapore, has filed a complaint against him before the Ceneco Board asking for an investigation of his alleged violations of Ceneco rules and regulations.
In his letter to the Ceneco Board of Directors dated April 11, Eugenio Velasco claimed that Lapore owns a rest house within the Northern Negros Forest Reserve Area and that his power connection is attached to a post of the main power line of Ceneco just in front of it with 10 KVA electrical transformers for his exclusive use.
Velasco asked if Lapore had complied with the requirements of Ceneco to avail of electrical power connection like certified copy of land title, building/electrical permit from the municipality, secretary's certificate granting the new applicant permit to avail of power connection.

of NORSU P15-M: prexy
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
OIC president, Peter Dayot, of the Negros Oriental State University disclosed that the school has around P15 million in collectibles from the benefactors of hundreds of scholars in the province from 2011 to 2013.
Dayot said the scholars can still graduate, but without the diploma, and transcript of records, until the university is paid by their benefactors.
NORSU scholarship coordinator, Nora Osmena, said payment is supposed to be on a semestral basis under the “Tulong Dunong” scholarship grant of the government, funded by soft project allocation of members of the House of Representatives, including Reps. Manuel Iway, George Arnaiz, and Pryde Henry Teves..
