Mar has proven capacity
to help Negros – Ferrer


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.

Roxas has been credited for hastening the creation of the NIR and acting on the needs of the sugarcane industry.

Dumaguete preparing
for long dry spell: exec

The Dumaguete City government is preparing for the forecasted long dry spell, starting next month until middle of next year, to ensure a steady supply of food in the local markets.

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.

He also submitted to the Sangguniang Panlungsod the El Niño Response Plan of Dumaguete, to mitigate the ill-effects of the weather phenomenon.
