Yanson 4 hold ground,
won’t give up bus HQ

BY CARLA P. GOMEZ

The Yanson 4 refused to give up control of the Vallacar Transit Inc. headquarters in Barangay Mansilingan, Bacolod City, despite the presence of close to 200 anti-riot policemen outside its front gate yesterday.

This left the police carrying out an order of the Supervisory Office for Security and Investigation Agencies to reinstall the Armored Guards Negros Security Agency (AGNSA) men of the camp of Leo Rey Yanson outside the gate of the facility yesterday afternoon.

Sheila Sison, lawyer of the Yanson 4, said if they want to install the AGSNA guards, they can do so only outside the premises of the VTI headquarters, as their services had already been terminated by the new board on July 11. moremoremore


Guv urges amicable settlement
BY CARLA P. GOMEZ

Negros Occidental Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson yesterday called on the feuding Yanson siblings to solve their differences amicably because the disruption of the Ceres bus services affects the whole Negros.

The Yanson feud resulted in the cancellation of Ceres bus services to southern Negros Occidental on Wednesday causing thousands of passengers to be stranded, and only 41 percent of its operations resumed yesterday.

The governor said that, from the very beginning, both factions said they would make sure their buses would remain on the road. “I was banking on that but, unfortunately, on Wednesday bus services stopped,” he said. moremoremore

Registration for rice tariff
fund ongoing – DA 6 official
BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA

Remelyn Recoter, director of the Department of Agriculture in Western Visayas, said farmers can still register for the Rice Competitiveness Enhancement Fund (RCEF) that is intended to modernize rice farms.

The Rice Tariffication Law mandates the establishment of RCEF, which guarantees the rice sector an annual P10 billion in financial support in the next six years, beginning 2019.

Under the law, half of the rice fund, amounting to P5 billion annually, will be used to procure rice farm equipment through the Philippine Center for Postharvest Development and Mechanization.
