‘Oppose add’l burden
imposed by Ceneco’
BY CHRYSEE G. SAMILLANO

The Social Action Center of the Diocese of Bacolod is asking the Central Negros Electric Cooperative to suspend the collection of P232 million in “unnominated contract quantities” since there is no decision yet from the Energy Regulatory Commission for itto collect.

SAC director Fr. Chris Gonzales said yesterday they are calling on the consumer-members to oppose this. They are also questioning why Ceneco is in a hurry to collect the P232 million differential billing from the consumer-members even without an order from the ERC.

He said they filed a motion for reconsideration before the ERC last year to prevent Ceneco from passing on to its consumer-members P232 million in “unnominated contract quantities.” moremoremore

Lacson yesterday described the statement of Escalante on this as a “very positive possibility”. moremoremore

BY MARK L. GARCIA

The Provincial Veterinary Office is reminding farmers and livestock raisers to closely monitor their animals as pneumonia and parasitic diseases can hit their livestock this rainy season if not given proper care.

Diagnostics Section Head Salve Tibus of the Research and Laboratory Services Division, said yesterday that during rainy season, farmers and raisers should take preventive actions to protect their animals from diseases and illnesses brought by rains.

Tibus said that during this season, pneumonia, malnutrition, and parasitic infections, are the cases they are mostly handling at the Provincial Animal Disease and Diagnostic Laboratory in Bacolod City.
