Traffic scheme for PUVs
plying Dumaguete ongoing

The Land Transportation Office yesterday started the dry run for north and south-bound public utility vehicles using the new terminal at the Robinsons Department Store compound in Brgy. Calindagan, Dumaguete City, Negros Occidental.

LTO regional operations chief, Macario Getaruelas, said it is high time the city gathers all transport groups in a terminal authorized by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board. He said the dry run is necessary to determine what should be done to ensure the smooth flow of traffic.

LTO Dumaguete chief, Roland Ramos, meanwhile, challenged those opposed to the trial period to muster 500 signatures so it can be stopped. The LTO did not set the duration of the dry run.

Miss Earth bets to
model local gowns

Twelve Miss Earth 2012 candidates and the reigning titlist, Olga Mercedes Alava Vargas of Ecuador, will model the gowns made by local designers during the fashion glamour show, 8 p.m. tomorrow, at the Lamberto Macias Cultural and Sports Complex in Dumaguete City, Negros Occidental.

The show and countryside visit to the province is part of the activities of the Miss Earth candidates before their pageant night on November 24 in Pangasinan.

Raffy Duhaylungsod of the Tourism Educators Council of Negros Oriental and Siquijor said the Carousel Productions Inc., the organization that owns and runs the contest, said local designers will provide the gowns and beach wear to be modeled by the candidates.

Potential 4Ps
beneficiaries sought


The government is appealing to the community to help the Department of Social Welfare and Development locate potential beneficiaries of the anti-poverty program, the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program, or 4Ps, in Negros Oriental.

DSWD Region 7 director, Evelyn Macapobre, said that, there are at least 122 potential beneficiaries to the program who have not been validated in Amlan and Sibulan towns.

Mayors Bentham dela Cruz of Amlan and Marcela Bartoces of Sibulan signed the program agreement with DSWD Secretary Dinky Soliman early this week in the province, to benefit 1,705 indigent families in their towns.
