The Negros Occidental Capitol draped in yellow to mark the 30 th anniversary of the people power revolution today*
The spirit of the EDSA People Power Revolution must live on, we should not repeat the mistakes of the past, Negros Occidental officials said yesterday.
The Negros Occidental Capitol in Bacolod City has been draped in yellow to mark the 30 th anniversary of the People Power Revolution today, that led to the ouster of Ferdinand Marcos and the restoration of democracy.
Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said the bloodless EDSA revolution “reminds us that by uniting as a people, we were able to regain our democracy and enjoy once again our basic Constitutional rights.” .
Defenses of police stations in Negros Island have been fortified in anticipation of more violent activities of the New People's Army, in line with its 47th founding anniversary on March 29, police regional director Chief Supt. Conrado Capa said yesterday.
Capa said troopers of the PNP safety companies were also ordered to operate against lawless elements.
The strengthening of police defenses also came in the wake of the recent ambush in Candoni town that claimed the lives of two policemen and caused injuries to four others, including two civilians, the responsibility for which was claimed by the Armando Sumayang Command of the NPA in southern Negros. .

Degamo's skipper fined
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
Dauin police chief, Senior Inspector Edwin Tuble, clarified that the carrier ship, locally called cobcob, and owned by Gov. Roel Degamo was not booked by the police for illegal fishing activities along the coastal waters of the town, or for being inside its marine sanctuaries, but merely for anchoring in a prohibited zone.
Tuble issued the clarification due to reports that the PNP in Dauin was responsible for the apprehension of the vessel and that it was held for violation of existing laws.
He said Apolinario Tenajeros of the Bantay Dagat reported to the police station the presence of the carrier ship inside the marine sanctuary of the municipality and that the latter had refused to heed warnings for them not to anchor in the area. .
