    The First Six Months: An Exemplary Performance

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos December 29, 2013 The First Six Months: An Exemplary Performance The last six months (July to December) of 2013 must have transformed John Geesnell Lim Yap II (JLY) into an angel without wings after what he has been through and will still bear: a memorable and high-end Oath Taking Rites conceived, scripted, and choreographed to aesthetic perfection; the Utopia of being privileged to lead a small city with big dreams; the realization that the city […]

    Surmounting a Tyranny of Numbers

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos December 22, 2013 Surmounting a Tyranny of Numbers Effortlessly a dominant voice in the Legislative Body of Tagbilaran City, he embodies the personification of adeptness in his craft borne out of preparedness in his earlier exposures. As one of the top students of the University of the Philippines and the Ateneo de Manila University, he entered the political derby while waiting for the Bar results, and gained more ground when he passed with flying colors, […]

    The First Fourth Consecutive Termer at the SP

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos December 15, 2013 The First Fourth Consecutive Termer at the SP The Election Code stipulates that a Councilor is entitled to only three consecutive terms at the Sangguniang Panlungsod. For the first time that ruling has been shattered, not in utter defiance of a national tenet, but by circumventing it while toeing the line specified. Call it ingenuity; but the fact remains that no law has been broken, and everything is in proper order. The […]

    A Dream Re-visited

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos December 8, 2013 A Dream Re-visited Ten years ago, I was exuberance personified, when I saw my first grandchild. He was a cute bundle of hair and distorted face; but I saw in him the achiever of what I failed to grab. When he celebrated his first birthday I wrote an article entitled “My Grandson A Superman,” which intrigued many of my friends, who texted me to clarify the veracity of my conjecture. Kilometric explanations […]

    On Top of the Situation

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos December 1, 2013 On Top of the Situation A refugee camp. Chaotic as a public market at peak hour. A study of delight in disorder. Functional in the midst of stressful disarray of phases and chores. These were just a few images that pervaded my consciousness when I dropped by the “City Hall at JICA” last Tuesday, the 12th of November for an interview with Tagbilaran City Mayor John Geesnell Lim Yap II (JLY), aware […]

    Competence Personified

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos December 30, 2012 Competence Personified Slim and lanky, and without a sound of “the humming bug,” this brainy Lawyer could be anybody’s friend, easy to trust, easier to confide with the most private of thoughts. He was always on the top five of his classes from elementary to college, graduating Cum Laude at Silliman University’s College of Law. As a leader in various socio-civic organizations, like Toastmasters International and Sandugo Lions Club, where he was […]

    Ready for the SP He Once Presided

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos December 23, 2012 Ready for the SP He Once Presided Early this year, his name was the first to come out in public as a possible candidate for Mayor of Tagbilaran City. A couple of months later, two more surfaced, and then a fourth. The fourth is Atty. Agustinus “Dodong” Gonzaga, a Lawyer who was once a Councilor of Tagbilaran City for six years. In my column in another local weekly, I broached the idea […]

    The First Boholano in the IBP Board of Governors

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos December 16, 2012 The First Boholano in the IBP Board of Governors Although he is quick to affirm that he has retired as Deputy Secretary of the Commission on Appointments, he does not look like a retiree, easily mistaken to be in his 40s. Call it an advantage of genes lineage with his five sisters acknowledged as real beauties, especially during their prime, and a younger brother similarly endowed in physically and mentally, but this […]

    A Break-Through Decision

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos December 9, 2012 A Break-Through Decision Life is a matter of choice. Decision-making can make or unmake a man. A right move ushers in victory; a wrong one could mean irreparable disaster. When an individual finds comfort at middle-age in a material world, it could only mean that he has made more right turns than wrong detours. In the perception of the modern world, he is a success. Dr. Abraham Neri Lim (ANL) wanted to […]
