    By late afternoon, they did knowwhere it started. If youre look-ing at the building, its what wewould call the B side, which is theleft side and about halfway back.Rahway Fire Chief Bill Young said.

    TOURISM of Buleleng had everattained its golden period when it wasthe capital of the Lesser Sunda Prov-ince. The amazing beauty of LovinaBeach along with its dolphin attrac-tions, Ulun Danu and Gitgit Waterfallseems to have been forgotten from thetourism map of the Island of the Gods.Tourism development has been fo-cused on the southern regions of Balinamely Badung, Denpasar andGianyar Regency, while forgets the po-tential of the North Bali. In reality, theattractions owned are no less magnifi-cent than that of other tourist destina-tions in Bali. If only the governmentwould overcome the problem of in-equality, it is not impossible forBuleleng community to enjoy thesweet pie of the tourism sector.

    Pursuant to the Bali Regional Regu-lation No. 4/1999, it has been set forththat Buleleng Regency had been di-vided into two tourist resorts namelythe Kalibukbuk tourism resort or bet-ter known as Lovina Beach resort witha broad development area reaching3,542 ha covering 7 villages such asthe village of Pemaron, TukadMungga, Anturan, Kalibukbuk,Kaliasem, Temukus, Tigawasa andBatu Ampar tourist resort located inthe west of North Bali with the devel-opment area reaching 14,124 ha. Theresort includes 5 villages namelyPenyabangan, Bonyupoh, Pemuteran,Sumberkima, and Pejarakan Village.

    A practitioner of Bali tourism,Nyoman Kandia, expressed the sweet-ness of pie of the rapid growing Balitourism could be said to have not beenfelt by the people of Buleleng. It wascaused by the sector identical to Balihad not been well ordered.

    Fireworks fiesta on the last New Years Eve 2011 claimed to have caused a number of aircraftsto land late at Ngurah Rai International Airport reaped a strong denial from the management ofPT. Angkasa Pura I (Persero), Main Branch Office of the Ngurah Rai Airport.

    A number of aircrafts reportedto choose swirling in the sea dueto fear of landing because ofmany fireworks flying high andexploding in the air near the air-port, had been clarified by thePersonnel and General Managerof PT. Angkasa Pura I, RismanTorry. According to him, it hadno impact on the flight activitiesat the Ngurah Rai Airport.

    All flights during the period ofyear change, both for those thatwould land and take off, were run-ning normally, unlike the news inthe media, said Risman Torry inhis office on Tuesday (Jan 4).

    According to him, the officers ofAir Traffic Control at Ngurah RaiAirport responsible for managingthe air traffic did not receive anyholding request (waiting for land-

    ing) from the pilots as a result offireworks fiesta on the New YearsEve 2011.

    We never received any com-plaints or reports from pilots con-cerning with the fireworks activi-ties around the airport, he said inrelation to the worries and fearsthreatening the safety of flight dueto disturbance of those fireworks.Even, there was no request of pro-

    hibiting the fireworks activities nearthe airport like the ban on raising akite near the airport. He recognizedthat no confirmation was given tothe management of PT. AngkasaPura I (Persero) Ngurah Rai Airportto do so.

    Nevertheless, we need to conveyto the public, let us jointly maintainthe security and flight safety becausethe airport is the main entrance oftourists to Bali, he said.

    Risman Torry appealed the pub-lic not to play any laser beam withinthe vicinity of the airport. Actually,the laser beam was remarkably dan-

    gerous for the world of aviation andcould interfere with the flight safety.

    Based on the document of the In-ternational Civil Aviation Organiza-tion (ICAO) regarding to theManual on Laser Emitters andFlight Safety, it was explained thatexposure to laser emissions mightprovide a physiological and medico-psychological effects on the cabincrews. Of course, it can be fatal forflight safety. To that end, all com-munities are advised not to play, useor turn on the laser beam on the areaof airport and its surroundings, hesaid. (par)

    To take back glory of Lesser Sunda Bulelengtourism should make improvement

    poses one of the triggers of the tourismunderdevelopment in the Buleleng re-gion. However, if government is will-ing to arrange the potential maximallyand prepare the supporting facilities, theglory of Lesser Sunda will return, saidNyoman Kandia in Denpasar, Tuesday(Jan 4).

    The gap was also indicated by theroom occupancy rate of the star hotels.Central Statistics Agency (BPS) of BaliOffice recorded that the highest roomoccupancy rate in the period of Novem-ber 2010 was in Badung Regencynamely 67.19 percent and the lowestin Buleleng Regency namely
