Marina tells shipping firms
to check RoRo passengers

The Maritime Industry Authority 7 has warned shipping companies that all passengers, including those with cars or riding on Ceres buses, on board roll-on-roll-off (Roro) vessels must undergo security check as required by law.

Marina 7 safety specialist Mardon Martin issued the warning after Mactan Cebu International Airport Authority general manager Nigel Paul Villarete said that when they attended the Regional Development Council meeting in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental two weeks ago, their vehicle was allowed to roll straight to the RoRo vessels without its passengers being checked.

“All the passengers should disembark from the buses or cars and go to the passenger terminal for security screening. They cannot go directly to the vessel,” Villarete said.

House of ‘gambling operator’
raided, P154,203 confiscated


Negros Oriental police swooped down on the house of a suspected illegal gambling operator in Ayungon town at around 10 a.m. Sunday and seized P154,203 in suspected gambling proceeds and paraphernalia.

Provincial police director, Senior Supt. Edward Carranza, said that members of the Special Operations Group, armed with a search warrant issued by Judge Candelario Gonzales of the Regional Trial Court in Bais City, conducted a search on the house of Hydose Reveligia, “alias Hydo”, in Barangay Tampocon 2, Ayungon.

Aside from the money in various bills and denominations, the team also confiscated eight pieces of tally sheets of the illegal “swertres” dated Oct. 28, two bundles of tally sheets, ballpens, calculators, staplers and other gambling paraphernalia. The raid was conducted in the presence of Barangay 2 Captain Benedicto Deguit and kagawad Arutro Carinal Jr..

7th community
hospital opens


The seventh community primary hospital in the province opened in Barangay Dauis, Bayawan City, Negros Oriental recently, to provide basic healthcare services to Negrenses.

The province allocated around P6 million for the completion of the hospital that boasts of a basic emergency obstetric and newborn care for newborn babies and mothers.
