Aying: Neg. Occ. bounty offer
may be replicated nationwide

Bounties funded by Negrenses for the neutralization of New People's Army rebels and ISIS-linked local terrorists or extremists, may be replicated at the national level, Maj. Gen. Jon Aying, commanding general of the Army's 3rd Infantry Division, said yesterday.

Negrenses recently pooled resources to fund bounties for the neutralization of New People's Army rebels and ISIS-linked local terrorists or extremists, who may attempt to penetrate Negros island, he said.

Concerned Negrenses are giving P100,000 each for every NPA “combatant” neutralized, dead or alive, Aying added.

Vet: No avian influenza
in Sta. Catalina brgy

There is no truth to reports that avian influenza has hit the hinterland barangay of Amio in Sta. Catalina, Negros Oriental due to the increased number of cough and flu cases among the residents, and the deaths of fighting cocks in the area.

Provincial veterinarian Jaime Villaluz issued the clarification yesterday in Amio with the barangay council, headed by Barangay Captain Alberto Omangay, with the Integrated Provincial Health Office represented by Dr. Henrissa Calumpang, as well as affected residents.

It was disclosed during the gathering that a backyard fighting cock breeder was in the process of immunizing his fighting cocks with commercial live vaccines. He was told that only healthy chickens should be vaccinated and so he disposed of the unhealthy cocks to his neighbors, prompting the spread of the virus suspected to be that of the Newcastle disease.
