start organizing in brgys
BY CARLA GOMEZ
Former Assistant Transportation Secretary, Ricardo “Cano” Tan, chairman of the Friends of Grace and Chiz-Bacolod chapter, said they have began organizing support for the two down to the barangay level in Bacolod City.
On Wednesday, Senator Grace Poe declared her intention to run for president in 2016, while Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero yesterday announced that he will be her running mate.
Rep. Jeffrey Ferrer (Neg. Occ., 4 th District) yesterday said he does not believe support for Liberal Party standard bearer Mar Roxas will be affected by the entry of Senator Grace Poe into the presidential race because he has already proven his capacity to help Negros Occidental.
Ferrer said he does not think there will be a split in the Negrense vote because of the entry of Poe. The people will vote for Roxas, not just because he is an Ilonggo, but because he has already shown what he can do for Negros, Ferrer said, citing his role in the creation of the Negros Island Region.

City agriculturist William Ablong has proposed the adaption of a diversified farming system by planting legumes and root crops, instead of rice and corn, after the first cropping period in 10 barangays identified as vulnerable areas during the hotter and drier days. These are barangays Balugo, Bajumpandan, Banilad, Batinguel, Cadawinonan, Candau-ay, Cantil-e, Camanjac, Junob and Talay.
