Workers Revamp at Provincial Capitol

      Even before the impact of the feared reengineering plan was felt by affected officials and employees, a middle level revamp is now in the offing affecting three personalities. 

      This developed after a  bridging set up was put in place pending completion of the Information Education and Communication (IEC) phase of the revamp plan. The initial salvo of the reshuffling scheme affected three heads of offices where more demanding tasks  need focus.

      The Capitol rigodon affected the offices of the Bohol Poverty Reduction Management Office (BPRMO) through its head Antonieto Pernia, Provincial Planning and Development Office (PPDO) of  John Titus Vistal, and Chief of Staff Emmanuel Caberte. Their assumption to their new posts was effective September 16.

       Governor Erico Aumentado has given Pernia, also the head of the Provincial Government Media Affairs (PGMA), a more demanding task of establishing the cultivation of jatropha in 10,000 hectares in Bohol by 2010. The project is set in motion with Pernia at the helm to catch up  with the governor's term expiration in 2010. The operation of the BPRMO has been added to Vistal's functions.

      Vistal will be assisted by Glicerio Doloritos as his point man in the day-to-day business, together with a casual employee, Paul Inting. Doloritos and Inting are Vistal's staff at the PPDO.

      A permanent head of the BPRMO will be appointed after the reengineering, considering that Pernia has, since at the start, declined the governor's offer of a permanent position in the government.

      Pernia also replaced Emmanuel Caberte as chief of staff of the Governor's Office after the latter, a former vice-mayor of Sevilla and an engineer by profession, has been assigned to the Provincial Engineer's Office to focus on the gigantic Sevilla waterworks project that would serve all 13 barangays of the town.

      As point person of the provincial government's jatropha project, Pernia's additional tasks entail a lot of traveling that may cause him to sacrifice some BPRMO functions if he holds on to the office.

      Moreover, his designation as chief of staff anchors on the governor's trust and confidence which he could conveniently deliver as having been the governor's spokesperson being head of the media affairs office. - 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…
