Jeffrey Malanog preceded the affair followed by the distribution of certificate of recognition to the 22 ALS A and E passers for their exemplary performance having passed the National A and E Test conducted last Feb. 10. These secondary passers are qualified to enroll in any course in college depending on the choice of the learner.

Moreover, one of the highlights of the program is the oath taking of the newly elected officials of the ALS District I Society of Barangay Officials (ALSSBO) and ALS Learner's Organization.

The ALSSBO and ALSLO Officials were inducted into office by Atty. Danilo Bantugan representing the City Mayor, Atty. Dan Neri Lim as inducting officer.

Newly inducted officials are Mansasa Brgy. Capt. Manolo Blanco, president; Pob.3 Brgy. Capt. Dionisio Remolador, vice-president; Mansasa Kag.

ALSSBO is the first of its kind ever created here in the City of Tagbilaran with the main goal of creating a strong partnership between the LGU and ALS working hand in hand for the benefit of the less fortunate, the out- of- school youth and adults in the barangays of District I.

The memorable event was attended by City Kag. Danilo Bantugan; ALS Regional Supervisor Sinfronio Thelmo; Dr. Erlinda B. Mahinay, representing the City Schools Division Superintendent Norma S. Varquez; City Kagawad Ann Mariquit Oppus; ALS Supervisor Dr. Crestianita V. Caga; Mahito from Japan; Brgy. Officials and around 160 learners from District I.

Meanwhile, the success of the program would not be made possible without the cooperation and support of the LGU, NAPC through Nemesio Monton and more importantly, the dedication and unified bonding force of District I ALS implementers, the mobile teachers - Almira Mumar, Versilita Olandre, Emilie Penaso with the District ALS Coordinator - Rizalina G. Peligro. - The 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…

Muslims in Bohol Philippines

The Muslim communities scattered all over Bohol stood us one Friday to make an unfavorable position of the hasty agreement defining the so-called ancestral domain of the Bangsamoro people.The ethnic leaders assembled Friday at Camp Dagohoy to witness the blessing and inauguration of the  new police center catering to Muslim issues and concerns. 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…
