    The Future from the Point-of-View of a Nine-Year Old Girl

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos April 27, 2014 The Future from the Point-of-View of a Nine-Year Old Girl In observance of the Holy Week, the three days starting with Judas’ kiss and the Crucifixion and burial of Jesus Christ, are the most crucial for Christians, for which reason brisk and flamboyant activities outside the home are to be limited. With the deadline for this column at hand, and with no other recourse for a subject, I turned my attention to […]

    The Tire Prince

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos April 20, 2014 The Tire Prince Dimiao was once a sleepy town, until Atty. Sylvia Varquez-Adame left her lofty position at the Philippine Central Bank and became the Mayor of the municipality. But even in the years of sluggishness, the town had produced big names in business and the professions. One thing they have in common… they left heir birthplace and ventured to other places, struggled tooth-and-nail, until they emerged victorious. Jesus Rapirap Quipit (JRQ) […]

    Top Salesman in USA

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos April 13, 2014 Top Salesman in USA He wanted to be a Priest; thus, he went to Christ the King Mission Seminary in Quezon City. Advised by their family Doctor to rest for a year, instead of going back to the Seminary, he stayed in Bohol and formed himself a fave member of The Roundels, a band with gigs all over the province. This changed his plan. Enrolling at Divine Word College, he finished BSC, […]

    “Service is My Motive…”

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos April 6, 2014 “Service is My Motive…” There are those who enter politics because there are jobless . . . they have nothing else to do. And make their elective position a source of livelihood, usually earned after intensive vote-buying (resorted to because they have no solid qualification to offer). There are Mayors, Vice Mayors, Councilors, etc., who become elected to positions they don’t know anything about. There are those who are prepared for public […]

    Unruffled by Obtrusive Innuendos

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos April 28, 2013 Unruffled by Obtrusive Innuendos Seeing him again after two weeks, I noticed he has acquired a slight tan. Clearly, he was busy in the campaign trail. Surely, he must have learned a lot meeting and conversing with people. Noticeable was his contented aura ensconced in a newly acquired confidence of a man who would soon be at the helm of City Hall. The smile was still there, but this time more determined […]

    FINISHING THE RACE WITH FORTITUDE

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos April 21, 2013 FINISHING THE RACE WITH FORTITUDE Dr. Abraham Neri Lim (ANL) was relaxation and peace-mindedness personified when we met for this interview. Not a young man in a hurry, nor an old man bidding adieu, but a mature individual at his prime, ready to take life as it is. With the other politicians all agog with winning the electoral derby and, therefore, concocting gimmicks in their earnestness to be visible to the curious […]

    A Crusader for Panglao’s Future

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos April 14, 2013 A Crusader for Panglao’s Future PICC (Panglao Island Community Center) was the setting of “Candidates’ Forum” showcasing the mayorables of the Island Municipality. Of the two who gamely graced the occasion, Dr. Evangeline Bon-Lazaro (EBL) was sturdy in soft-spoken candidness, while Mrs. Leonila Montero was a good communicator. Both Ladies “did not hit below the belt,” to use the words of an observer from Tagbilaran City. The project was spearheaded by the […]

    Ang Unang Babayeng Mayor sa Dauis?

    One-on-One With Loy M. Palapos April 7, 2013 Ang Unang Babayeng Mayor sa Dauis? Twice she was out the less-favored end of the local political yardstick, schemingly perpetrated by her cunning predecessors who saw in her the proverbial neophyte, wet between the ears, and ripe for exploitation. She danced to their music and ended up holding a bag full of promises not fulfilled. But instead of playing a helpless cry-baby surrendering to the wolves of the concrete jungle, she bounced […]

    After 12 Children… Fulfillment

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos April 29, 2012 After 12 Children… Fulfillment The life of Linda is like a song, sometimes a poignant lullaby, at times a searing crescendo of emotional outburst reflective of an odyssey only the strong can survive, at some moments jovial and inspiring, but the heart-wringing passion for service is always the dominant strain that defines her faith. Be it on the academe where she had molded thousands of minds into the right perspective, the organizations […]

    Ripe for the Provincial Legislature

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos April 22, 2012 Ripe for the Provincial Legislature Among the incumbent Councilors in the City of Tagbilaran, only one holds the distinction: of being a lawmaker since his student days, would have a record of 23 years in the Legislative Body, had once run as a Vice Mayor, and who still looks the youngest at the Sangguniang Panlungsod. He has found the elixir of youth in his attitude (seemingly nonchalant but dead serious when needed) […]
