Baguio summit seeks reforms & clean polls

After a successful turnout early this year, various civic groups and concerned citizens are converging for the second time on Aug. 31 for another people’s summit at the University of the Philippines Baguio.

WRATH OF TYPHOON INENG -- Office of Civil Defense-Cordillera and the PAF Tactical Operations Group 1 assess the scale of the landslide that occurred at Sitio Elizabeth in Taneg, Mankayan, Benguet at the height of Typhoon Ineng on Aug. 22. Eight bodies have been recovered after six days of search and retrieval operations. Despite the challenges they face, rescuers and volunteers involved in the operation are not giving up hope of locating the missing persons.

Typhoon incurs P1 B crop and infra losses
Feeling caught between the "power struggle" between the National Commission for Culture and the Arts and National Historical Commission of the Philippines, Mayor Mauricio Domogan said Congress should review the mandate of these government agencies.

The Cordillera has suffered close to 1.5 billion in damages to agriculture and infrastructure due to Typhoon Ineng.

Solon says Sto Tomas no longer forest land

Baguio Rep. Nicasio Aliping, Jr. has denied violating Presidential Decree 705 or the Revised Forestry Code in Mt. Sto. Tomas even as he pressed for the dismissal of a complaint against him which he said was based purely on speculation and surmises.


Additional funds for infrastructure projects for Cordillera cities and provinces have been proposed in the 2016 national budget.

MOTORBIKES FOR CITY COPS -- Two more brand new motorbikes were turned over by Mayor Mauricio Domogan and Liga ng mga Barangay President Michael Lawana to the Barangay Peace and Order Advisory Council of stations 4 and 10 of the Baguio City Police Office. Motorcycles are ideal for quick police response even during traffic gridlocks.
-- Bong Cayabyab
REACHING OUT -- Interior and Local Government Sec. Mar Roxas assures affected families and LGUs in Benguet of national government support during his meeting with Benguet officials led by Gov. Nestor Fongwan, Vice Gov. Nelson Dangwa, and key officers of the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council last week. With Roxas were Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda and DSWD ASec. Vilma Cabrera.

SANITATION CUTTING -- Foresters of Camp John Hay, with the supervision of CENRO, BSU, and DENR, conduct an emergency sanitation cutting of identified beetle-infested pine trees that have fallen because of brittle trunks. The sanitation cutting was also done to protect the public from the dangers posed by the trees that might fall because of their brittle trunks.

BAGUIO HEALTH FAIR -- Dozens of residents, including children, availed themselves of the various health services rendered by the City Health Services Office and partners from the government and private sector at the Baguio Convention Center last week. The event, which also promotes healthy lifestyle, is part of the series of activities lined up for the 106th Charter Day celebrations in this mountain resort.
-- Carlito Dar
SYMBOLIC BABY -- Claire Jiliene Garlejo, the city’s symbolic 100 millionth baby, has been honored by the city government of Baguio and Commission on Population Regional Dir. Rosa Fortaleza during flag raising rites at City Hall on Monday. The plaques, certification, and P10,000 cash were received by her parents Nelson and Joann Christine. -- Redjie Cawis
ALTERNATIVE TO RICE FARMING -- Farmers sort out native tomato variety grown in a farm in Poblacion, Banaue, Ifugao. Planting of alternative crops in the municipality is a good sign, as farmers need not abandon farming in search for more lucrative jobs in the urban areas, which is one of the causes of the deterioration of some tracks of rice terraces built by their ancestors more than 200 years ago. -- Harley Palangchao
LITTLE BY LITTLE -- The major rehabilitation of the Athletic Bowl is being completed despite the series of typhoons that hit the locality. The installation of the rubberized track oval will complete the second phase of the project.
