No need for martial
law in Visayas - Negrenses
BY CARLA GOMEZ

Negrenses yesterday were of the opinion that there is no need to declare martial law in the Visayas.

They were reacting to the statement of President Rodrigo Duterte that after declaring martial law in Mindanao, he was considering also imposing martial law in the Visayas, because this region is very close to Mindanao.

Negros Occidental ViceGov. Eugenio Jose Lacson said “I see no reason to declare a state of martial law in the Visayas. After the incident in Bohol, the military has declared that the last ASG (Abu Sayyaf Group) member who entered the area has been neutralized. Even Gen. Jon Aying, in his TV interview, assured the Negrense that there is no threat in the region.” moremoremore

Intensified campaign
vs. illegal mufflers on
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

Dumaguete City Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo and the Provincial Highway Patrol Group pledged yesterday to continue with the relentless campaign against illegal modified mufflers of motorcycles.

Remollo led yesterday morning at the City Hall the destruction of about 140 modified mufflers that the PHPG had earlier confiscated during checkpoints and roadside operations in the city.

A road roller was brought in to flatten out the illegal mufflers, which the mayor described as a nuisance to residents, considering the loud noise emanating from these illegal motorcycle accessories.
