Inabanga Bohol Athletic Meet 2009

  Hundreds of elementary and high school students pitted skills against each other in the recently concluded town athletic meet.

  The sports hostilities proved a success even if postponed until after the danger of further spread of the influenza A (H1N1) virus already diminished. 

   The virus had caused suspension of classes in several schools and the request that the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) skip this town in the supposed to be provincewide medical missions last September 6.

  Mayor Jose Jono Jumamoy had relayed his request to Bohol Gov. Erico Aumentado in the effort to contain the spread of the virus that a pupil of Lawis Elementary School picked up when visiting Negros Island.

  The students, coaches and officiating officials trooped to the municipal cultural center for the opening ceremonies.

  In his welcome message, Jumamoy encouraged the students to learn to love sports and imbibe the spirit of competition.

  "Through this activity, the youth will learn the value of sportsmanship. Joining the meet is not all about winning only but above all, learning the value of fair play," he said.

  Delegates from the elementary schools in the Inabanga North and South Districts, the Southern Inabanga High School, Inabanga High School, San Jose High School, Cuaming High School and Saint Paul's Academy saw action in over 10 events to include running, jumping and throwing events, badminton, basketball, chess, dance sport, sepak takraw, table and lawn tennis and volleyball.

  Although the meet involved student athletes and the schools, it was a local government unit event as well. Jumamoy collaborated efforts with Inabanga South District in-Charge Eleuterio Torregosa, Inabanga North District Supervisor Grace Wielder and the Technical Working Group created for the purpose.

  Winners of the municipal meet will comprise the Inabanga Team that will compete in the Sub Congressional meet on September 23 in San Isidro.

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…

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…
