Congressman's Wife Will Replace Husband in 2010?

       By the way, we have it from a very reliable source that Trinidad Mayor Babie del Rosario- Cajes is really bent on succeeding to the congressional seat of her husband, Rep. Bob Cajes in the 2010 polls in the 2nd district.

       With Rep. Cajes now controlling most of the mayors and barangay captains in the area, anyone challenging him or for that matter his wife, Mayor Babie, will certainly have a lot of problems. We are wondering whether the Cajes family will be giving way to Gov. Ric Aumentado, who is reportedly casting a moist eye on Rep. Cajes seat.

       We will not surprised if Governor Aumentado would be promoting and backing up Bob Cajes as governor in the later months before the May 2010 polls. In this way, he may able to convince the Cajes family to give way to his comeback in the 2nd district.

       The question that will be left hanging would be the fate of V-Gov. Julius Herrera, whom we surmised at this time, as having been given the governor's imprimatur as his successor. What will happen to his bid if he will be left out in the ensuing Aumentado- Cajes deal? And how about Rep. Ed Chatto, whose body language show a never- say- die run for the governorship by the next elections? 

 We won't be making a calculated guess on these issues, but we know that one of them will be left out in cold, like what happened to then Governor David Tirol in the 1995 elections. Politics in this country is not only an exercise in disloyalty, but a perfected system of treachery. 

       Whatever happens to the infighting in the district and provincial levels of the present administration, will be watched quite closely by the opposition. Maybe, just maybe, the day will finally come for change. - from a column, Sunday Post

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…
