Tricycle drivers, operators
oppose traffic proposal


A proposed ordinance that seeks to establish the alternate day traffic scheme in Dumaguete was opposed by majority of the 2,500 motorcabs for hire in the city during a public consultation at the Lamberto Macias Sports Complex yesterday.

Operators and drivers said it is not the motorcabs for hire causing congestion in Dumaguete, but the four-wheeled private vehicles, including delivery vans and trucks, that are allowed entry at certain hours of the day.

Roberto Remolano, an operator, said that if the city is sincere in its campaign to decongest traffic, it should not single out the motorcabs or tricycles because this is tantamount to class legislation.

Tulabing elected Dumaguete
Diocese administrator


Msgr. Gamaliel Tulabing, parish priest of Balugo and the Canon lawyer of the Diocese of Dumaguete since 1991, was elected as Diocesan Administrator, during the meeting of the Board of Consultors at the Diocesan Pastoral Center, Friday.

Tulabing, who hails from Santa Cruz, Tanjay City in Negros Oriental, graduated cum laude in Theology and had his doctorate studies on Canon Law at the Royal Pontifical University of Sto. Tomas.

He promised to uphold the best qualities of the Diocese of Dumaguete in preparation for the new bishop, who will be assigned by the Holy See, after Archbishop John Du was transferred to Palo, Leyte on May 9.

Napolcom hikes scholarship
grants for PNP dependents

The National Police Commission has increased the financial benefits of its scholars, who are children of policemen who died or were permanently incapacitated in the line of duty.

In Napolcom Memorandum Circular 2012-001, a copy of which was secured by the DAILY STAR, the increase that will take effect in the opening of classes next month, will mean that scholars in the elementary will receive P12,000 annually from the P8,000 grant, while high school scholars will get P16,000, or an increase of P5,000. Vocational scholars will get P12,000, while college scholars will enjoy a maximum of P22,000 per semester, or an increase of P8,000.

Napolcom vice-chairperson Eduardo Escueta said the additional benefit will enable grantees to cope up with the inflationary costs of tuition and miscellaneous school expenses.
