DENR to probe ‘hot’ logs
on gov’t-owned vehicle


The DENR-Community Environment and Natural Resources Office I in Negros Oriental will investigate the apprehension of a truck, owned by the Guihulngan City government, found illegally transporting lumber Saturday.

CENRO I chief Charlie Fabre said his office will undertake administrative proceedings after the dump truck, with red plate No. SHW-714 and found loaded with 31 pieces of Gmelina cut lumber, is turned over to them.

He said he sent his personnel to the 12th Infantry Battalion’s detachment in Balugo, Guihulngan City, to tell them that the truck and its cargo have to be turned over to the CENRO.

6 outstanding
Dumaguetnons named


Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria has named the six Outstanding Dumaguetnon awardees who will receive their trophies 3 p.m. today in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental.

They are Judge Cresencio Tan Jr. of the Regional Trial Court Branch 30, for the judiciary; Rosalie Lariosa – education, Henry Espedido – journalism, Connie Rasid – agriculture, and Arturo Umbac and Catalina Amasula – public service.

Sagarbarria said he is thankful to the committee for pursuing the search even with the time constraint in fully disseminating the information.

Plans for Calungsod
nat’l mass on track

The venue for the national thanksgiving mass on the canonization of San Pedro Calungsod on Nov. 30 in Cebu City is almost complete, Fr. Raul Gallego, chair of venue preparation, said yesterday.

Gallego said that, although the designated parking area is not yet finished, car passes were already distributed to those who applied for accreditation through the parishes. The parking area, that is across the street of the venue, can accommodate 10,000 cars.

He said work on the template, or the structure where the mass will be held, had to stop Monday night because of heavy rain. But work resumed Tuesday morning. He said they are praying it won’t rain in the remaining days of preparation so they can be ready for the dry run on Saturday.
