    The SP Financial Wizard

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos February 23, 2014 The SP Financial Wizard There are those who are vehement in their assertion that politics is for lawyers, which is not necessarily accurate. The Sangguniang Panlalawigan is a showcase of varied professions synergizing themselves in the formulation of ordinances. This variation of personal inclinations works well for the City. The occasional bickering is always to be expected in the Legislative Body, as it is composed of different people with different opinions. When […]

    The Importance of Home Core Values

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos February 16, 2014 The Importance of Home Core Values With the boom in the Tourism industry seemingly comes the rise in criminality many of which are drug-related. Both may not be exactly parallel with each other, but it is not difficult to surmise that cultural amalgamation and the influx of alien values have their negative side effects, especially when no tenets are drawn for guidance, and no regulatory provisions are promulgated. The upsurge in criminality […]

    Keeping Up with Avant Garde Aesthetic Sense

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos February 9, 2014 Keeping Up with Avant Garde Aesthetic Sense Interior design is at its infant stage in Bohol for a few reasons: it is an expensive passion; avant garde taste is not commonplace; there is no listing of professionals to select from; and most Boholanos are conservative in aesthetic sense. Thus, we have Architects and Fine Arts practitioners who dabble with it, but not as a main vocation; and others just make it a […]

    Imbibing Wisdom while Steering his Boat

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos February 2, 2014 Imbibing Wisdom while Steering his Boat Taking criticisms with a grain of salt seems to be a ploy that augers well for the incumbent Mayor of Tagbilaran City. He never loses his composure despite the tirades hurled against him. Even if the offense bordered on insult – like his being curtailed in his appointing power as the Head of the Executive Department – he was seen shaking hands with the initiator of […]

    His Father’s Son

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos February 24, 2013 His Father’s Son The Damalerio brothers are presently following the footsteps of their late father, Atty. Alfonso Damalerio, who passed away at the prime of his career in public service. The late Board Member of Bohol must be smiling now, for his children have not disappointed him in their career paths, especially the three brothers presently occupying positions of big responsibility at the Provincial Capitol. Abeleon Rafols Damalerio (ARD) is the third […]

    An Accountant at the SP

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos February17, 2013 An Accountant at the SP Either in the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, or the Sangguniang Panlungsod, the financial subject is always a bone of contention. Whether money is scarce or there is an avalanche of it, dealing with funds is a ticklish matter that could make or break an organization. And worst… makes antagonists out of friends. The present Sangguniang Panlungsod has a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) whose lineage includes some illustrious public officials in […]

    “A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever!”

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos February 10, 2013 “A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever!” It is a truism that “beauty is in the eyes of the beholder,” especially if the definition of what is beautiful transcends the physical; but Keats has more adherents upon declaring that “A thing of beauty is a joy forever!” For, indeed, beauty soothes and ushers in a convivial feeling of being in commune with the good, godliness, and joy. There are “upholstered” faces […]

    Less Publicized Mayoralty Candidate

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos February 3, 2013 Less Publicized Mayoralty Candidate Fresh from USA where he attended the wedding of his son, Dr. Abraham Neri Lim (ANL) was relaxation and peace-mindedness personified. Not a young man in a hurry, nor an old man ready to retire, but a mature individual at his prime, ready to take life as it is. With the other contenders in the mayoralty race all agog with winning the political derby and, therefore, made themselves […]

    Bohol Leads in Technical Education and Skills Development

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos February 26, 2011 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 […]

    The First Lady of Bohol IT

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos February 19, 2012 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 […]
