    The First Lady of Bohol IT

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos August 31, 2014 The First Lady of Bohol IT There are now thousands of Boholanos who have certificates and diplomas in the various curricula for Computer Science, either for a full Bachelor’s degree, or short-term training. Yet, only a few stand out as Computer luminaries, if by it we mean not only exposure to Information Technology but actual application of what is imbibed. To these few belongs the popular Leah Tirol-Magno (LTM), although only those […]

    Bohol Leads in Technical Education and Skills Development

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos August 24, 2014 Bohol Leads in Technical Education and Skills Development The strength of a nation is not on the rich, but on the middle class. This is the reason USA is still the most powerful country in the world, notwithstanding the series of recessions it has been subjected to. The Philippines is bruited to already have a population that reaches the 100-million mark; but this assertion is not official. What is official is that […]

    A Recurring Theme Reprised

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos August 17, 2014 A Recurring Theme Reprised Definitely a distinctive voice in the 12th Sangguniang Panlungsod, he had set himself apart from the others as a resonant compendium of knowledgeability on vital issues tackled by the Legislative Body since it convened a year ago. Sometimes perceived as a negativist by those aligning themselves with the administration, at times viewed as an obstructive figure rocking the boat, because of unpopular issues he espouses, he has remained […]

    “It’s Payback Time.”

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos August 3, 2014 “It’s Payback Time.” There were more than a hundred who submitted themselves to rigorous screenings and be a part of the first batch of Registered Nurses (RN) to graduate at the Bohol Provincial Hospital School of Nursing. Only 49 passed the examination and screenings. Only 27 graduated. That was the time when there was only one Nursing School in Bohol, and the requirements for admission were gargantuan.

    Student Yesterday, A Leader Today

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos August 25, 2013 Student Yesterday, A Leader Today Meeting the young man years ago, at the height of the preparations for TBTK (Tigum Bol-anon Tibuok Kalibutan), as a part of the Sandugo Festival, I was impressed by his eager-beaver attitude to have things done. He was in-charge of the activities lined-up for the children of Boholano Balikbayans, with one prime target: to introduce them to age-old Boholano traditions and values through sports, parlor games, and […]

    More Savvy Holding the SP Gavel

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos August 18, 2013 More Savvy Holding the SP Gavel If there in one among our local officials whom I consider as a more improved subject for a live interview, he would be Jose Antonio Salera Veloso (JSV), Vice Mayor Toto Veloso of Tagbilaran City. Because I prefer to see my subject eyeball-to-eyeball in a “live” repartee, and shun telephone verbal tussle he has seen to it that, in the countless sessions we had at DYRD-ZD, […]

    Cliff to Climb

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos August 11, 2013 Cliff to Climb Inheriting a position besieged with murky dealings is not a reason to rejoice. Realizing he has to concoct massive (and sometimes unpopular especially to those adversely affected) reforms in the workplace he is assigned, this young retiree (from Coca Cola, at age 50) needs to embolden himself for the repercussions expected. Even if equipped with the basic rudiments in marketing and personnel management, this eager worker has caused goosebumps […]

    On with her Advocacy

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos August 4, 2012 On with her Advocacy A public office is not a necessity to advocate for reforms, although it could help move those who pretend to be deaf-blind-and-mute, like the monkey who hears no evil, sees no evil, and speaks no evil. In her case, being involved in social progress is a way of life. As a student (HSS, UP, USC) she had been active in some crusades. Her employment in private firms and […]

    “Malipay Ako nga Makakita Kanila nga Malipayon.”

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos August 26, 2012 “Malipay Ako nga Makakita Kanila nga Malipayon.” Since she became a Barangay Captain of Tabalong, Dauis, Bohol the once sleepy Barangay woke up from a lethargic stupor and has never been the same again. Once a gloomy stretch from Songculan to Bingag, the highway is now well-lighted, including some inner streets of the once sleepy barrio. She installed six pumping units for the inhabitants’ self-sufficiency in fresh water (even adjoining Barangays now […]
