50C jeep fare hike
starts in WV  today

It won’t solve drivers’ plight – UNDOC

A provisional 50-centavo hike in jeepney fares to help drivers and operators cope with rising diesel prices will take effect in Western Visayas starting today, LTFRB Regional DirectorRomulo Bernardes said yesterday.

The 50 centavo increase will mean the P7.50 fare in the region will now be P8 for first four kilometers, he told the DAILY STAR.

However, he said the 20 percent discount for students, the elderly and disabled will mean their fare will only be P6.40.moremoremore

3 jail escapees
dangerous, PNP warns

A task force was formed by the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office to spearhead the manhunt of three escapees, one of them facing multiple cases of murder, attempted and frustrated murder, who bolted from the Bago City police jail Monday.

At the same time, Senior Supt. Allan Guisihan, provincial police director of Negros Occidental, also ordered a thorough investigation of the jail break, and the review of security in all police jails.

Detained suspects Aris Chicuva, Ryan de la Torre and Michael Victor Vergara escaped Monday by sawing off the iron window grills of their detention cell at the Bago police jail, three days after their arrest on March 9.moremoremore

Businessmen, mayors
buck wage increase


Eight Negros Occidental business groups and the mayors league said they are opposing any increase in the minimum wage at this time, in a joint letter sent to the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board in Western Visayas.

Any increase will just trigger the skyrocketing of prices of food, transport, water and power, and will erase whatever increase is granted, they said in the letter, a copy of which was furnished the DAILY STAR yesterday by the Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

The daily minimum wage in Western Visayas was adjusted on July 16, 2011, in Wage Order No. RTWPB VI-19, they pointed out.moremoremore
