Bohol Philippines Politics and Elections in 2010

By Boy Guingguing, Sunday Post
Elections are all about hostility not unity 
Forget about unity. Think about hostility. That's elections are all about.
Why should our candidates foist on the electorate the merits of unity when
elections should have meant voters are given the freedom to choose.  First of all, elections are taken to mean the collision of hostile forces. For if political exercises are meant to be a choice between two friendly forces we might as well abdicate our right of suffrage to our so-called leaders who have the temerity of dictating our choices. 
In elections past, we had seen how leaders dictated the tempo of elections by herding candidates under one party. 
The coming one promises to end  all the scandalous machinations  of the powers-that-be to foster unification. 
What use to be the order of the day of elections past  became clearer to the common man that indeed the 2010 electoral combat is one that promises the electorate the right of a lifetime on the  basis of hi…

Election Scandal in Bohol

Editorial: Sunday Post
Something tells us the on-and-off affair of Lakas-Kampi with Gov. Erico Aumentado is not over. Earlier dumped by Lakas as official bet for his old congressional seat, Aumentado is back in the good graces of the administration party when his certificate of nomination and acceptance (Cona) was restored.
In effect, Lakas also revoked the Cona issued to Trinidad Mayor Judith Cajes. This sets the stage for one of the most bitterly fought electoral battles in next year's elections.Of course, the interesting sidebar to this tussle was the manner in which Aumentado was nearly elbowed out by the combined forces of Rep. Edgar Chatto and Rep. Roberto Cajes. In spite of all their professions of innocence, there is no doubt about the part that they played in the whole drama.Granting that party higher-ups were the ones who lowered the boom on Aumentado, no one bit the canard that they were unaware of it. If they were unaware of the charges of disloyalty agai…

Ambush in Bohol Philippines

Two unknown gunmen armed with a 9 mm pistol and another a 45 cal. firearm waylaid Board Member Josil Trabajo while on board a government-issued Isuzu Crosswind Wednesday evening but fortunately for the lawmaker, his live-in partner and their child as the three car occupants, escaped unhurt.
The kind of firearms used in the ambush was determined by the spent shells found in the crime scene.
Trabajo and his common law wife identified as Daisy Comahig, of legal age, and now residing along Banat-i Road in Dampas district, this city, just came in from the Bohol Tropics where they presumably had dinner.
When the Trabajo family was near their rented apartment in Dampas, two men came from behind and peppered their vehicle with bullets.
At least three bullets holes were found in the door panel and rear window of the car but failed to hit its mark which apparently was the board member.
When Trabajo sensed that he was being targeted for assassination, he immediately ordered his driver …

Bohol Smuggling Scandal

A Bohol unit of the Philippine Anti-Smuggling Group (PASG) is under fire after it conducted a two-day operations against local businessmen resulting in arbitrary interceptions of goods and commodities getting out of the city insular wharf.
Crying foul against the unnecessary searches were the Provincial Development Council and the Bohol Chamber of Commerce and Industry which took the cudgels for the local businessmen who felt harassed by the PASG-Bohol.
But Rommel Manhilot a.k.a as Rommel Montano, an actor and younger brother of gubernatorial candidate Cesar Montano who claims to be the director of the local PASG unit, said that there was nothing irregular in their operations.  The elder Montano is also an actor and a multi-awarded at that.
On December 9-10, Montano's group made up of 10 men, mounted a checkpoint at the city pier to inspect the import documents of Bohol-bound cargoes.
Just like Montano, its team leader is another Baclayon native identified as Greg Quina…

If the current interest in books and transformation of students into voracious readers are the gauge, then the celebration in Inabanga of the 75th National Book Week was a success,

No More NPA Rebels in Bohol

The communist insurgency in Bohol has been crushed, making it as the first province in the country to meet the deadline set by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo before she steps down in June 2010, according to the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP). The deadline is to defeat the left-leaning New People's Army (NPA). The declaration was made by Bohol Governor Erico B. Aumentado and Col. Allan Luga, commander of the 802nd Brigade of the Philippine Army based on the island province some 600 kilometers south of Manila.

Other members of the Columbian delegation were Miguel Suarez, Ms. Maria Lucia Uepigue and Ms. Andrea Salazar. While in Bohol, they…

Catigbian Bohol Socialized Medicare Service

Catigbian town puts in another innovation worth replicating by local government units: a socialized health service incorporated in a local system called the yellow card. 
By passing Municipal Ordinance Number 6, series of 2009, the town has also successfully institutionalized a program that has become prime tool for some local chief executives who want a sole credit making it appear that he is using his own money to aid his constituents.  
We need to put up a measure that would stop future leaders from appointing his political supporters as beneficiaries, all to the disadvantage of those seriously needing the help, Mayor Roberto Salinas stressed. 
The Yellow Card Ordinance is our humble way of providing the best health care and at the same time sustain the operations of the new Municipal Health Center and Lying in Clinic, Salinas said. 
But considering that we have indigent constituents who would also need to avail of its offered basic medical and health services, we need to identify who …

Clarin Bohol Project

At least two barangays with an estimated 100 hectares of rain-fed rice fields will stand to benefit from a water impounding facility.  
Located in Poblacion Sur, the irrigation project was thru the efforts of Agriculture Sec. Arthur Yap who is on a project giving binge in his capacity as Cabinet steward for Bohol
Yap's effort to give projects outside his turf doused cold water to speculations that his concentration in spreading the gravy of the agriculture department was limited to the third district where he is eyeing the Congress seat. 
The Clarin facility replaced the old one which was wiped out by a water spout which hit the irrigation area last year.
Construction of the project started in earnest and  as of last report the work phase ran the gamut of setting up the stone rip-rap.
The DA allotted P9 million to finish the project.
Aside from Poblacion Sur, the neighboring village of Candajic will also benefit from the irrigation project.

Baclayon Bohol Basketball

Holy Spirit School Crusaders clobbered a strong SK All Stars of Taguihon, 73-62, in the first game of a twin bill exhibition matches which coincided with the celebration of the feast of their Patron, Sta. Cruz Exaltacion, Monday at the Taguihon hard court.
The Crusaders were never threatened by the much heftier and taller all star team as they showed what they can.
The all star team started hot and made a 6-0 run in the first few minutes as the visiting Crusaders could hardly find their range. Vincent Descallar, a native of Taguihon, led the attack of his team to counter an 8-0 blast to take the upper hand as the buzzer sounded ending the 1st canto, 21-16.
But as the game went through in the 2nd quarter, the All Stars employed a full court trapping defense which yielded positive for the home team to grab the lead by a solitary point at lemon time.
At this juncture both offense and defense of the visitors went anemic allowing their opponents to score without opposition. But their coach Ric…

Although the come backing Crusaders were bannered by Josh Dominise, a former mainstay of the University of Perpetual Help of Rizal Daltas, they succumbed to the pressure of the trapping defense put up by the sluggish Virus who were led by lanky slot man Matt Alej Tagaytay, with 18 points, strong boy Allen Joseph Aranzado, 16 and wily point guard Roque Gerry Viel Manug, who contributed 13 point aside from his task of orchestrating their offensive patterns.
The score at halftime was, 35-31 in favour of the Virus.
Coach Carlo Cresencio of the University of Bohol Baby Lemurs needs no much pressure as they clawed the Grace Christian School Eagles, 68-38 in the other game.

Bohol Chornicle

I noticed lately that some people who search for Bohol news have inadvertently misspelled Bohol Chronicle as Bohol Chornicle. There are many reasons why people commited this spelling blunder. For one, some are in a hurry to type a term or word in Google and hit Enter without checking the spelling.
There are thousands of webmasters who have taken advantage of misspelled words. They bought domain names based on existing popular names and make a website out of them. Some webmasters would even sell the site to the real owner of the name if they deem these misspelled domain names already profitable.
This is exactly what had happened to flicker.com. The popular name is of course flickr.com (without the "e"), a photo-sharing site acquired by Yahoo. Someone bought the domain name flicker.com. When flickr.com became popular, flicker.com was auctioned and the bid started at $6 million.
Hmmm... Boholchornicle.com is not registered yet. Got an idea? Proceed to Godaddy.com.

Bohol Organic

Gov. Erico Aumentado yesterday strongly pushed for Bohol's organic agriculture after inducting the Bohol Organic Agriculture Management Council (BOAMC) created by his Executive Order No. 20.
Aumentado said the launching of the Bohol Greenlife Program is a sequel to the provincial government's Bohol Green Project which seeks the rehabilitation of the major river watersheds in the province which provide water for irrigation, waterworks, power, and flood control.
The provincial government has a joint venture with the Department of ENviroment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the ABS-CBN Foundation Bantay Kalikasan to rehabilitate the Loboc River Watershed and the Abatan River Watershed.
It is also in tandem with DENR and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to reforest the Wahig-Pamacsalan River Watershed which provides water to Bohol's mega irrigation facilities with the Malinao Dam, the Bayongan Dam and the Capayas Dam as the main beneficiaries in providing water to about 11,000 he…

Bohol aligns three major agrarian reform community (ARC) projects

Bohol aligns three major agrarian reform community (ARC) projects for foreign funding and leading officials are confident the province keeps an ace in its sleeves in accessing funds for its implementation. 
The hidden card, provincial agrarian reform officers Atty. Johnson Sinco and Dr. Tony del Socorro point out, is the convergence formula implemented by Bohol leaders. 
Convergence formula is a strategy of cost sharing in the implementation of projects where the beneficiary local government shares in the costs of the project with the funding agency and the community people's organizations. Here, a barangay government fund is propped up with the share from the provincial government, other government agency in the area concerned with battling poverty.
Even the people's organization puts up labor counterpart, explains Atty. Sinco during the recent Kapihan sa PIA. This way, the people realize that they too have ownership of the project and this improves the chances of communities taki…

Trinidad Bohol Politics

Mayor Baby Cajes, 'no babe in the  political woods in 3-in-1 concoction'  By Boy Guingguing, Sunday Post
 Life the hot coffee we used to know as 3-in-1, there is a political equivalent concocted by the most clever politician Bohol has ever known.
 Pardon our description but this is not meant to despise our favorite politician, who is at it again in his role as an astute political animal.
 Truth is, we adore to high heavens his honesty and sincerity in public service that even in his twilight years he is still a force to reckon with.
 The adjective "clever" is therefore complimentary given his colorful political career which to this day still  the envy of his peers.
 We are referring to Gov. Erico Aumentado's announcement in Trinidad that Cong. Roberto "Ondoy" Cajes is a candidate for vice governor. For Aumentado, it was a calculated gambit in making the announcement right in Cajes' territory. Never mind that in the same forum, he also made a formal declar…

Bohol Island Rabies Free?

By JUNE S. BLANCO  
  Zero may be a record that nobody wants to hold. But when it comes to rabies cases, the rule of thumb is the lower the number, the better the performance is.
  And Bohol is gunning for just that: zero record.
  This after eight – going nine – months into 2009, the province has not encountered any case of human or canine rabies yet.
  Dr. Stella Marie Lapiz, provincial veterinarian, expressed hope that Bohol's record will stay as such until the year ends and onwards.
  This after the province launched an innovative program designed to make the anti-rabies campaign sustainable: integrating rabies awareness and responsible pet ownership in the elementary school curriculum – on top of dog registration, vaccination and elimination where required.
  In collaboration with the Makati City-based IP Foundation (IPF), a non-profit organization that advocates affordable and accessible health care and bridging the digital divide, Bohol Gov. Erico Aumentado embarked on another co…

Jagna Bohol Katas Ng E-vat

A pre-fiesta gift from the Katas ng E-VAT for Lolo and Lola arrived on time on September 9 before the townspeople will celebrate the feast of St. Michael the Archangel on the 29th.
      The much-awaited cash gifts that drew a sort of skepticism on the part of the doubting senior citizens turned out into a big affair of a bundle of joy when 70-year-old up folks and non-pension members of the Federated Senior Citizens' Association of the Philippines (FSCAP) in Jagna converged at the municipal gymnasium to receive P500 each.
      Mayor Exuperio Lloren, together with Social Welfare Officer-in-charge Marcionila Reyes and Acting Municipal Treasurer Raymond Cuadra, worked hard that the amount be released soon and that it would be enough for all entitled FSCAP members.
      The first batch, comprising beneficiaries from the 14 barangays of Jagna, trooped to the gymnasium for the whole day activity.
      The second batch came from the eastern coastal barangays who gathered at the Tub…

Catigbian Performance Team showed full support to the 75th Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) medical and feeding mission.
      Prior to the schedule of the provincial-wide medical mission, Catigbian Bohol Mayor Roberto Salinas met with the Local Health Board to discuss preparations for the activity.
      The Municipal Health Office and the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office took the lead among the departments that could be involved in the activity.
      Concerns like the venue, transport, participants, volunteers, medicines and food were discussed during the meeting to come up with a systematic flow of the activity.
      The municipal government provided transportation to the target indigent patients, especially to those who came from far-flung barangays.
      A schedule was made for the 22 barangays so as to facilitate orderly consultations for all the patients.
      Those from the far-flung barangays were scheduled in the morning, while patients from the…
