      The coop chairs raised the need to have a member's education seminar during the regular monthly meeting of the MCDC.

      Most of them said that coop members have been delinquent in paying their loan amortizations, blaming the NGOs that are into lending business operating in the municipality.

      Eleuteria Pañares, president of Bagacay Women Credit Cooperative, led the opening prayer, followed by the singing of national and Bohol hymns led by Rosario Tolentino- -president of Balintawak Women Credit Cooperative.

      The first topic in the seminar was on values formation discussed by SB Member Item.

      She also said that all elected officials cannot hold any position in the cooperative. He/She can be a member but not as an officer.

      Talibon Municipal Agrarian Reform Officer (MARO) Omar Suarez introduced the next speakers- - Municipal Agrarian Reform officer of Danao, Pet Pangandoyon of Talibon- -who discussed the cooperative organizational structure, functions of board of directors and the different committees, computation of the dividend and patronage refund and credit management and delinquency control.

      During the open forum, Pangandoyon answered the queries raised by the cooperators.

      In answer to the question on how to compel bad borrowers to settle their delinquency, he said there is no bad borrower but bad loan.

      Pangandoyon, in return, challenged the participants to follow the steps in processing loan applications and identify the 5 Es of credit.

      He advised the coop members to stretch their patience and stay cheerful when dealing with clients.

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…
