Some agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) and their families living on land formerly owned by the family of former First Gentleman Jose Miguel Arroyo in Hacienda Bacan, Barangay Guintubhan, Isabela town, Negros Occidental, yesterday said they are alarmed over the presence of armed men on their property at night.
An ARB, who asked not to be identified, said the presence of armed men was noted after they met with Araceli Malabor, widow of slain Board Member Renato Malabor, to try to avail of loans.
While the country remains free from the presence of Zika virus, which is spreading in the Unites States, the Bacolod City Health Office is issuing an advisory to inform the public about the disease.
Zika is a disease caused by a virus transmitted by the Aedes mosquitoes, which is the same vector carrying dengue, chikungunya, and yellow fever.
Acting City Health Officer Ma. Carmela Gensoli, said they do not want the people to worry because the disease has not affected Bacolod, but they are disseminating information on it so they can prepare and know what to do in case it is transmitted by people entering the country.

SC orders disposal of court
records; case inventory up
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
Court records, papers and exhibits no longer needed were ordered disposed of and destroyed by the Supreme Court, under Administrative Matters No. 07-03-09-SC, Presiding Judge Rafael Crescencio Tan Jr. of the Regional Trial Court Branch 30 said recently.
The order to dispose of long-decided cases and unneeded documents and papers was due to risk of fires, and for being an eyesore, as these are stored along corridors, stairways, and fire exits of the Halls of Justice.
Quoting the Supreme Court's simplified guidelines for disposing of the records, Tan said parties and lawyers involved in cases that were already decided or completely terminated have the primary responsibility of keeping and preserving copies of court documents and records affecting their rights and obligations.
