IN BAYAWAN

BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

The Department of Agrarian Reform in Negros Oriental has installed 487 agrarian reform beneficiaries in the 1,089-hectare land formerly owned by the Montenegro Estate Inc. in Lapay, Bayawan City.

The installation ceremony was led by Provincial Agrarian Reform officers Stephen Leonidas and Lumel Chiu, Louie Naranjo and Sherwin Tubog of the DAR Legal Assistance Division, and town agrarian reform officers Julmar Toralde and Mariano Sarvida Jr.

Leonidas said the installation will hasten the subdivision survey and the issuance of the individual certificate of land ownership award to the ARBs. Once the ARBs have their own CLOAs, they can start paying their taxes to the Bayawan City government, he added.

DepEd: 3,000 teachers
to serve as BEIs

BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

Around 3,000 public school teachers in Negros Oriental are expected to serve as Board of Election Inspectors and other duties in the May 13 elections, provincial Department of Education schools superintendent Salustiano Jimenez said.

He said most of these teachers have already served in the 2010 and previous elections, and expressed optimism that those serving for the first time are also capable of carrying out their duties and responsibilities as BEIs as they have been trained, or presently attending trainings, for the automated polls.

Jimenez also assured that teachers who are related by affinity or consanguinity to politicians or political candidates in Negros Oriental will not be serving as BEIs of the Commission on Elections.
