The National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Team and their bevy of heavy equipment ended their retrieval of 66 missing persons in Solongon, La Libertad and Guihulngan with the sad note that these are now presumed dead, and were added to the original 39 fatalities in the Feb 6 earthquake of 6.9 intensity.

Government and volunteer rescuers have decided to end all retrieval operations Thursday, particularly in Barangay Planas, Guihulngan City and Solonggon, La Libertad where more than 50 are still missing.

EDITORIAL  
   
 
For days and weeks, the entire nation, all national major TV networks and the broadsheets were focusing on Negros Oriental as the sad victim of a big if not the biggest earthquake in years.

Inversely, Negros Oriental also became an indirect tourism-blessing because at last, we were included in the "map" , that made it known that there is such a place as Negros Oriental , not just Negros Occidental.

The entire nation and even neighboring countries came to give millions of pesos in aid to over 30,000 families or about l50,000 victims of the February 6 earthquake of 6.9 intensity.

Please let the governor answer this, not his administrator, unless he is the author of this very insignificant and cheap slogan, whatever it is called. Who ever coined this slogan is doing the governor a dis-service, a turn-off for his political victory or political demise. The following is the letter emailed from a taxpayer.
