NegOr eyeing P10M
budget for Palaro

Negros Oriental is planning to allocate around P10 million for the improvement of sports facilities and billeting quarters, as host of the February 2013 Palarong Pambansa, a government press release said.

Provincial Treasurer Danilo Mendez said that, in preparing for the national games, the province is expected to spend between P10 million to P15 million for the repair of infrastructure, billeting areas for the athletes, provision of water supply and improvement of sanitary toilets, among others.

Provincial Schools Division Superintendent Salustiano Jimenez of the Department of Education said the event is expected to bring in more than 15,000 athlete-delegates and guests, including some parents of the players, from the 17 regions in the country, the press release said.

Teachers to undergo
personality assessment


The Department of Education in Negros Oriental has required all teachers to undergo the personality assessment tests, after receiving complaints about their behavioral and attitudinal problems in the three districts of the province.

Some teachers, however, alleged that the test is a money-making activity of the Division.

DepEd Division Supt. Salutiano Jimenez denied this. He said that results of the personality assessment are treated with strict confidentiality.

‘LPA no chance of
turning into cyclone’

MANILA – The low pressure area off Surigao continues to affect Southern Luzon, the Visayas and Mindanao, the state weather bureau said yesterday.

Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration forecaster Aldczar Aurelio said that as of 4 p.m., the LPA was spotted at 350 kilometers east of Surigao City (10.0°N, 128.0°E), still embedded along the inter-tropical convergence zone (ITCZ) affecting Southern Luzon, the Visayas and Mindanao.

These areas will have cloudy skies with moderate to heavy rainshowers and thunderstorms that may trigger flash floods and landslides, Aurelio said.
