Jagna Bohol Radio Station

Lest they start on the wrong foot, Jagna local officials equipped their local broadcasters with the proper skills to run their community radio in a two-day workshop held November 8-9. 

  This as the town attempts to start a new breed of broadcasters who would be oriented with the issues confronting media and with the knowledge on issues of responsible broadcasters. 

  Speaking for Mayor Exuperio Lloren, DyJP FM manager Nimfa Lloren said the move is held while the community radio's clearances have been held, pending compliance of the country's broadcasting requirements.  

  The station, to be operated by the local government would advocate on health issues and concerns but does not limit itself to issues that concerns the community, the wife of the mayor claimed. 

  Made operational by virtue of a provisional permit granted for a day-long airing during its inauguration a month ago, Jagna hopes by putting in the right skills, it would be easy for them to operate the government radio station. 

  Using help from the Philippine Broadcasting System (PBS) and the Philippine Information Agency for the workshops, Jagna sent in more than 10 broadcasters and technicians. 

  "They were screened by the local Community Radio Council (CRC) to participate in the training that hopes to bolster foundations on radio broadcasting, writing news for broadcast, interviewing skills, orientation of the Philippine broadcasting code, journalism ethics and orientation of the Philippine radio," information officer Catalino Berro shared.   

  PBS and DyMR's Jane Antiporta as well as PIA's Yvette Bede Matabalan and Rey Anthony Chiu took turns in handling specific workshops to equip the broadcasters on the proper skills in the sectoral issues they would soon tackle.  

  Berro, station assistant manager also added, "the training is aptly set to allow the community broadcasters the right orientation on the immense responsibility of media in today's society." (PIA/rachiu)

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…
