The Philippine Coast Guard lifted the ban on fastcraft travel out of Negros after the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration lifted its gale warning over the island at 5 p.m. yesterday, Lt. Commander Ramil Palabrica, Coast Guard Bacolod Station chief, said.

The gale warnings issued by PAGASA since Monday caused the cancellation of 88 fatscraft trips plying the Bacolod-Iloilo-Bacolod route involving about 8,800 passengers and lost revenues of about P2.5 million, Frank Carbon, Weesam Express manager, said.

Many fastcraft passengers headed for Iloilo or Bacolod opted to travel via roll-on roll-off vessels that were not barred from operating for being over the 250 gross tonnage. moremoremore

Chief of Bayawan LTO lauds
extension office conversion
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

The chief of the Land Transportation Office extension office in Bayawan City, Negros Oriental, has expressed optimism over the recent move of the Senate to convert the existing LTO extension offices to regular district offices in many parts of the country.

LTO-Bayawan chief Alberta Janine Lawas announced that this is a welcome development as it would mean more services being made available to the extension office's clientele which includes those from Negros Occidental.

She referred to a media report last week that said the Senate had passed on third and final reading a number of bills for the establishment and conversion of more LTO district offices, to include that one in Bayawan City..moremoremore
