Tanbarks on distressed
motor launch legal: PCG

The Philippine Coast Guard in Dumaguete has confirmed that the 51.05 tons of tanbarks, ferried on a motor launch that had engine trouble off Siaton, Negros Oriental, recently, had been transported to Cebu after they were found to be covered by proper documents.

Lt. Commander Agapito Bibat, commander of the Coast Guard station in Dumaguete, said employees of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources verified that the tanbarks, or the bark of various trees used as tannin source, or as coloring for “tuba” or coconut wine, have legitimate papers for transport.

The DENR allowed the cargo to be transported to Cebu, its original destination, loaded on the M/V Filipinas Ozamis, a RORO ship that left the port of Dumaguete on Wednesday, he added.

Hold order on 9 DepEd
designations questioned

Officials of the Department of Education in Negros Oriental are in a quandary, after Undersecretary Rizalino Rivera issued a hold-order on the designation recently signed by Secretary Armin Luistro, involving nine schools superintendents.

These involved Bianito Dagatan, who was designated to the Bais City schools division; Bernardo Ysolan, Tanjay City division; Marilyn Andales, Dumaguete City division; Mario Andong, Guihulngan City Division, all in Negros Oriental.

Hold-orders were also issued on the designations of Ramir Uytico as Negros Oriental schools division head; Caridad Labe, who was promoted as assistant regional director; Evangel Luminerias as Tagbilaran schools division superintendent; Nympha Bongo for the Bogo City division in Cebu; and Senen Paulin to the Naga City division.

P145M for FMRs to
be released soon

Negros Oriental Gov. Roel Degamo said he was assured by Malacañang that the P145 million in funds promised for the rehabilitation of farm-to-market roads in the province, will be released by the Department of Agriculture soon.

He said the money will go a long way in addressing the needs of the farmers and ensure food security, as the province is agriculture-based.

Meanwhile, DA officials were ordered to deliver results, since the agency has been allotted a bigger budget to fund initiatives, sustain farm and fishery productivity and incomes, and attain self-sufficiency in rice and other staples by 2013.
