DTI, LTO ready to implement
mandatory helmet law Aug. 1

Officials of the provincial Department of Trade and Industry and the Land Transportation Office-Dumaguete District admitted yesterday there is a perceived lack of motorcycle helmets’ supply as of the latest inventory.

Motorcycle drivers and passengers, however, are urged not to wait until the last hour to purchase the prescribed standard headgear with the full implementation of the Mandatory Helmet law or Republic Act 10054 starting August 1.

DTI provincial director Javier Fortunato Jr. said motorcycle drivers and back-riders should start acquiring their crash helmets to avoid the rush.

DAR slammed for ‘inaction’
on Polo Plantation petition


Farm workers, who petitioned for inclusion/exclusion proceedings with regard the Polo Coconut Plantation Inc. in Tanjay City, have lambasted the seeming inaction of the Department of Agrarian Reform on their plea.

The workers, who have organized themselves into ARIBA (Aksyong Rebolusyonayo ug Inisyatiba sa Benepisaryo sa Agraryo or a Cebuano acronym that stands for revolutionary action and initiative for agrarian reform beneficiaries), held a dialog Friday with the provincial DAR in Dumaguete City, to follow up on their request for an early resolution to the petition they filed on June 6.

The petition calls for the inclusion of qualified ARBs and the exclusion of disqualified persons from the landholding in Polo that is owned by former Senator Rene Espina Jr.

Running and dancing enthusiasts in Negros Oriental are invited to join the “Barya para sa Kalikasan” fun run and dance of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Dumaguete branch at 5 a.m. on July 7, a government press release said.
