The Silay City Police Station Theft and Robbery Section have apprehended the suspects of successive robberies and thieveries in Silay City, namely Aldin Boy Dingcong Rosales alyas Pipoy, Reynaldo Litra Clarito, Raymund Ortega Bito-on alyas Tyson and a certain Boy Paki Isidro last February 1, 2013.
By means of the rapid response of the police theft and robbery section, these suspects were detained. And a robbery case will be filed against them on Monday February 4, 2013 in the city prosecutor’s office.
Police Supt. Rosauro Francisco, chief of police in Silay City, reported that some residents in the city were victimized by these suspects. He said the modus operandi of the suspects are to enter in various grocery stores, to steal some hanging clothes in the resident’s backyards and to trespass houses without window grills and able to perform their criminal designs.
Chief Superintendent Agrimero Cruz Jr., Regional Director, Police Regional Office (PRO) 6 said, the campaign against loose firearms has gone a long way and will still continue, during and after the election.
"Masasabi po nating malaki na ang ibinaba ng bilang ng mga nagmamay-ari ng mga loose firearms na ito. Nanga-ngahulugan lamang po na marami sa ating mga kaba-bayan ang tumugon at naki-pagtulungan sa ating pana-wagan laban sa loose firearms."
Cruz reported, PRO6 has already visited 20,005 owners of formerly registered firearms. This means they already reached 60% in its campaign against loose firearms since the target number of firearms with expired license are only 33,287.
In October last year, PRO6 created Task Force "Armas" to focus on the accounting of firearms with expired licenses.

Imagine a scholarly treatise that has a fancy title "Acidification of soil associated with lupins grown in a crop rotation in north-eastern Victoria and policy directions" (adapted publish.cisiro.au) or another one that sounded like "Experimental Acidification Causes Soil Base-Cation Depletion at a watershed" (adapted soils.org) – When all these are but taking a lifestyle of tree planting in a location scientifically chosen for such purpose.
BACIWA and partners keep watersheds and tributaries alive with overflowing water for the Bacolodnons’ survival.*
The Filipino fiesta mentality hyped tree planting it became a convenient event embraced by the political world, run of the mill advocacy of groups called "tree huggers" and even educational institutions where "earth science" are frustratingly studied.
It was totally different when the Bacolod City Water District (BACIWA) gathered groups last Saturday and planted 1,000 seedlings more in the protected 1,000 hectare Northern Negros Natural Park (NNNP) climbing through Sitio Campuestohan, Talisay City "to restore what has been wasted by human carelessness and irresponsibility."

The New People’s Army (NPA) has owned up to a deadly attack in a non-military truck at Barangay Puso, La Castellana town in Negros Occidental last Sunday which killed 9 people, and apologized to the victims’ kin.
In a recorded statement sent to ABS-CBN by JP Regalado, alleged spokesperson of the Leonardo Panaligan Command of the NPA, the group said they originally planned to conduct a checkpoint in Barangay Pusok at La Castellana town with the intention of disarming alleged members of the Barangay Peacekeeping Action Team who were carrying firearms. However, the rebels claimed someone from civilians on board the truck fired shots at them, which forced them to return fire at the passengers of the vehicle heading towards them.
