    today at about 1pm a group of 4 people showed up at our beach area. I talked to them and they said they are from the DENR (Department of Environment and Natural Resources); inspecting the area for illegal structures. I just saw them here in Bacong, I guess they came from Dauin beach and they might even go to Dumaguete. They were wearing the plastic ID cards around the neck, and they were equipped with computerized measuring instruments, digital cameras etc. they checked all illegal structures in our neighbourhood, took pictures and measured out if the buildings are in the environmental protection zone / easement zone. They said, all informations will be submitted to the head office in Manila. So, after starting to clean up Boracay, Panglao, Palawan, etc, they arrived here - impressive. The new president really seems to bring a change to the country. Remember, the DENR is the office with authority to close your business / tear down your house, if it is settled within the 30m easement zone, measured from the highest shoreline at the beach. Breaking news, really :-)

    In 2009 when I first came here. I stayed in Amlan. I was enthusiastic about fishing. I remember going to the Tanjay area and seeing heavily discolored water and few fish. The locals said it was the discharge from the local processing plant that caused the change in the water condition. I wonder what DENR will find there, if it still exists.

    IF
    AND Manila agrees AND there is no long drawn out 10 year exchange between lawyers UNLESS some gifts change hands.

    I am happy for you that you enjoyed having the DENR come around. Many restobars along the beach are not so happy as it means the men you saw will be looking for free meals and gifts. NO WAY, or course I am joking. There is no corruption in DENR, Duterte cleaned that all up (where is that sarcasm smily?)

    add-on: today; 2 inspectors from the sanitary / health office inspected the area, took photos etc. A lot of action within 3 days only - quite impressive, compared to the past in this country. let's see what consequences will follow but I think they are serious this time. The president met all mayors of the country this week and he surely gave them some homework and they know that there is nothing to discuss about anymore - respect for this presidents authority. As long as a lot of people specially in the Bacong area built their houses in the easement zone, there might be a lot of howling and whining in the nearest future :-)

    The smiley face at the end of your post makes it sound like you are quite happy that a lot of people in the Bacong area might get dumped all over. Funny how other people's misfortunes makes some people happy. Is that what they call the crab mentality?

    Did most of these individuals knowingly break the rules/regulations/laws?

    In the case of the squatter that lives 70 meters from my place. He has a piggery on the beach, a mere 7 meters from the high water mark. I say shut them down, regardless of whether or not they know they are breaking the law. When the pig pens get cleaned out, the waste is just hosed on to the beach.
    That sounds like something a little more serious than a poorly positioned nippa hut.

    Did you read the post of Tuba-coma and comprehend the issue involves sanitation and health.
    You can accuse me of having a crab mentality as well if you want. I'll be happy when I can go down to the beach in flip-flops instead of rubber boots.

    The only misfortune this squatter has is he can't raise the 20 pigs at his home in downtown Bacong. I don't feel sorry for that guy at all.

    mis•for•tune
    (mɪsˈfɔr tʃən)

    n.
    1. adverse fortune; bad luck.
    2. an instance of this.
    [1400–50]
    syn: misfortune, adversity, affliction refer to an event or circumstance that is hard to bear and beyond one's control. misfortune is any adverse occurrence or situation involving bad luck: She had the misfortune to break her leg. adversity suggests one of a series of misfortunes: Job endured many adversities but kept his faith in God. affliction suggests a misfortune that causes great suffering: Blindness is a severe affliction.

    Yes it would be in poor taste to laugh at someones misfortune.

    I don't think this quote qualifies as misfortune as it was not beyond control.
    Just deserts? Karma? Warrant? Rate? Justified? Not misfortune.

    When someone speeds past me on the freeway then later on I catch up to see them getting a ticket, dang straight I'm going to laugh. Might even toot my horn if it's a friend!

    Somehow, I like your comment. Maybe you should think about where you live - in a country with clearly defined laws and rules. and one of these laws says; no permanent buildings / constructions in the easement zone at the beach - this law has a reason. People who are building there, denying the public access to the beach are simply ignorant and selfish, in mho. they are breaking the law, and this is a slap in the face for all the people who follow the rules - so, would you accept this in your home country? You accept that illegal pig farms with all the dirt running down to the sand bring peoples health in danger? Hm. My comment has nothing to do with crab mentality; I just feel absolutely no pity with people ignoring / breaking the law, specially not with the rich ones, and no matter what nationality they are. my only concern is about the poor squatter people, I hope they get a fair compensation from the government - if ever anything happens.

    Now that had me literally rolling on the floor laughing out loud.

    It seems there are a lot of people who support your point of view so I shall just bow out of this until we know the results of this "investigation"

    Good luck to everyone that they all get their own way. (Hmmm is that even possible?)
