Ubay Municipal Health Office Recognized For Excellence

The Municipal Health Office here with two rural health units had a resounding performance in the recently conducted Ligtas-Tigdas program. Both units scored over 100 percent responses from parents.

The two RHUs are under one health physician, Dr. Edgardo Ladera.

RHU I head nurse Basilides M. Pepino told the Chronicle that as of Feb. 27, supposed the last day of the activity, their unit had a 100.53 percent turnout of the estimated target.

RHU I has 24 out of 44 barangays in the municipality with a population of 4,735 of the grand total 64,860.

Pepino said that of the 21.75 percent target or 8,727 children with ages ranging from nine months to 95 months old (8 years. and 11 months old), 8,773 availed the Philippine Measles Elimination Campaign (PMEC). She added that the percentage will increase as they are still to conduct a door-to-door vaccination.

Scheduled for visits are those who failed to avail during the campaign period and also in response to request to include children aged eight years and three months.

Barangay Tapos scored the highest percentage of turnout at 127 percent while Barangay Juagdan had the lowest with 83 percent. In Barangay Poblacion, 716 responded out of 806 target or 88 percent, Pepino added.

On the other hand, at RHU II based in Barangay San Pascual, RHU nurse Julie Bersamina disclosed they had already completed the program in 20 barangays comprising their unit. She said that with the population in the area of 25,559 they set a target of 5,512. - 2004 Bohol Chronicle

Panglao Bohol International Airport Update

The Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) has endorsed Gov. Erico Aumentado's request to frontload the 2010 budget for the Panglao Bohol International Airport to 2009.
  In a letter to Budget and Management Secretary Rolando Andaya, DOTC Secretary Leandro Mendoza favorably endorsed Aumentado's request seeking the frontloading, citing among other reasons, that 2010 is an election year.
  As such, Aumentado had explained, Congress might not be able to approve on time the calendar year 2010 General Appropriations Act (GAA), giving the country no other choice but to operate on a reenacted budget.
  A reenacted budget would jeopardize the airport project, the governor pointed out, because the 2009 budget carries only P307.5 million for the airport. The balance of the amount that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo earlier approved for DOTC to come up with stands at P690,971,398 for a total allocation needed of P998,471,398.

Bohol Tourist Spots - Bohol Attractions

Heading east from Tagbilaran along the south coast takes you first to the coastal fishing town of BOOL , 5km away. Said to be the oldest settlement on the island, it's also the site of the  Blood Compact Site, marked by an attractive bronze sculpture on the seafront. This is the spot where local chieftain Rajah Sikatuna and Miguel Lopez de Legazpi concluded an early round of Philippine–Spanish hostili-ties in 1565 by signing a compact in blood. Every year for one week in July, Boholanos gather in Bool for the  Sandugo  (One Blood)  festival  which, apart from the usual beauty pageants and roast pigs, includes a passionate re-enactment of the blood ceremony.
About 2km east of Bool, BACLAYON  is the site of  Baclayon Church, the oldest stone church in the Philippines. Much of the existing facade was added by the Augustinian Recollects in the nineteenth century, but the rest dates back to 1595 and was declared a national historical landmark in 1995. The church's convent has been t…

It is called Sala'am Center.It was an opportune time for the Post to get the reaction of the Muslim leaders given the combustible issue of a peace agreement between the government and the Moro Islam Liberation Front (MILF) now catching fire from all segments of Philippine society.The government and the MILF on Tuesday were set to sign a memorandum of agreement on ancestral domain following 10 years of off-and-on negotiations. But the Supreme Court stopped the ceremony after local Mindanao officials protested the inclusion of their areas in an expanded Moro homeland without consultations.Critics said the broad economic and po…
