HEADLINE  
   
 
It may have earned P 9 million in net income, yet Negros Oriental Electric Cooperative II will have to collect more for its partner Green Core Geothermal Incorporated to cover the hike in power generation charges.

Hence, consumers already struggling with the rising cost of fuel and prices of basic commodities are shelling more for their monthly electric bills starting February this year, after GCGI raised its generation charge from 9.67 centavos per kilowatt hour to 10.4629 centavos or by 1.76 centavos per kilowatt hour.NORECO 2 spokeswoman Beverly Gonzalez explained that the additional generation charge by GCGI is allowed in the power supply agreement signed last year subject only to the escalation and de-escalation of prices in basic services and commodities.

CRITICAL REPORTING  
   
First they bragged that they had 100 witnesses to testify against Chief Justice Corona. Then within 24 hours, they filed the impeachment complaint in the House. Then they had eight (8) big big issues against the CJ. Then the trial begun...

After 30 days of hearing , the accusers were only able to present 25 witnesses. Then they withdrew five , yes, as in 5, of the articles of impeachment, so only three grounds were left: culpable violation of the Constitution, betrayal of public trust and a hastily done TRO.

EDITORIAL  
   
 
Unlike in Manila. Dumaguetenos majority of tricycle passengers can still take the proposed .50 centavor fare increase, on one condition: that ALL tricycle drivers follow the rules of public conveyance which is: not to refuse any passenger a ride anywhere in the city; and that they do not choose nor discriminate passengers whom they accept to ride.

The refusal and discrimination plus the discourtesy of tricycle drivers make the city passenger abhor and denounce their operation, to the extent that passengers are petitioning to abolish tricycles in the city and change them to bigger mini cabs or jeepneys.
