  Municipal employees, members of the municipal and barangay Peace and Order Councils (POCs), barangay officials, tanods and students recently gathered for an orientation on their roles to keep the peace conducted by the Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC) that Gov. Erico Aumentado chairs.

  Revolving around the theme Krimen Sugpuon, Pamilya Palig-unon, the activity formed part of this town's participation in the nationwide observance of Crime Prevention Month which aims to promote community involvement and participation in crime prevention.

  This town became a stop in the PPOC's provincewide information campaign to generate awareness and promote crime prevention in the common tao.

  Provincial Director Rustica Mascariñas of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) led a panel of speakers that discussed the responsibilities of citizens in peacekeeping.

  "This symposium will remind us that peace and order is the concern of everybody in the family and in the community," she said in her statement of purpose.

  She also elaborated the criminal justice system pillars to include crime prevention, law enforcement, prosecution and court, rehabilitation and community. 

  Inabanga Chief of Police, Sr. Insp. Melanio Artiaga welcomed the participants while Ch. Insp. Uldarico Palgan, head of Police-Community Relations of the Bohol Provincial Police Office (BPPO) explained the role of the community in crime prevention. He acknowledged the role of tanods as their counterparts in implementing peace and order. He also discussed the major activities recommended in OPLAN Sugpo Krimen.

  Meanwhile, Cpl. Reynaldo Colongon, representative of the Philippine Army's 2nd Special Forces Battalion based in Bilar town discussed the Bohol Local Integrated Security System (Bliss) and the barangay security system.

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…
