    It’s Time to Say “Goodbye.”

    “One-On-One” With Loy M. Palapos September 7, 2014 It’s Time to Say “Goodbye.” It has been more than seven years since I commenced “One-On-One” as a column, and in those years I never missed an issue. Even if I was abroad once or twice a year, because of my USA Green Card, I always saw to it that giving time to this column was a priority. Even ill-health was not made a burden. Modern IT was a great help. For […]

    Cleaning the Aegean Stables

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos September 29, 2013 Cleaning the Aegean Stables In Greek Mythology the Aegean Stables were the most disorganized and the dirtiest, cleaning it would take hordes of men and months of labor, therefore impossible for one man to do in a brief span. When the task was given to Hercules, he did it in a day – by changing the flow of a river and having it coursed through the stinking hell. The modern corollary is […]

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos September 22, 2013 Mightier the Second Time Around Practice makes perfect. This is a truism coolly manifested by Atty. Alexander Herrera Lim (AHL) at the 12th Council of Tagbilaran City. In the third month of the Sangguniang Panlungsod as the Lawmaking Body of the Baba Administration, one voice continues to dominate the floor every Friday: that of Councilor Aleckoy Lim. And there seems to be no down-trending of this phenomenon. Unexpected, but publicly accepted. As […]

    The Man Behind City Square

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos September 15, 2013 The Man Behind City Square There was much sound-and-fury about the City Square, with self-proclaimed analysts and prophets of doom dipping their dainty fingers into the fray, but ending up with more intriguing half-truths that turned the waters more murky. Nobody got his data straight from the horse’s mouth, resulting to time and words wasted. And strained relationships. To avoid turning around the bush, I called up the only individual who could […]

    Outstanding Student of the Philippines

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos September 8, 2013 Outstanding Student of the Philippines The search of the Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines (TOSP) in 1961 dovetailed the lives of a young Boholana, Sonia Malazarte, and a young Bicolano, Raul Roco. She placed first, and he took second place, a big blow to his machismo; so he wanted to conquer her by courting her. But instead, he fall in love with her, a feeling which was reciprocated. The rest is […]

    “We are on the Up-Trend!”

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos September 30, 2012 “We are on the Up-Trend!” The latest activity I worked with this dynamic young man was the very recent VABC (Visayas Area Business Conference) held at the Bohol Tropics Resort last September 14 and 15, with the 16th allotted for tours of the participants from Luzon, Mindanao, and the other islands of the Visayas. Being an expert in event coordination and management, he was tapped to head the Committee on program flow. […]

    “Public Markets Should be Privatized!”

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos September 23, 2012 “Public Markets Should be Privatized!” Business depends a great deal on governance. While it is true that the government should leave business to the private sector, governance should regulate entrepreneurial practices for the good of the majority, if not all. These have been issues about some Mayors not issuing permits to business establishments, and they have unceremoniously earned the ire of businessmen; but there are always underlying factors for the issuance of […]

    The First Animal Clinic in Bohol

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos September 16, 2012 The First Animal Clinic in Bohol “Azucena” is a local term for recipes concocted from “man’s best friends,” which was every drinking buddy’s favorite, but which is now becoming extinct, especially in Tagbilaran City. With urbanization comes the upliftment of aesthetic sense and culinary taste. Thus, if the practice of slaughtering dogs in many parts in Northern and Central Luzon is still, the trend is surely disappearing in Bohol. In place of […]

    Legislative Advantage

    One-On-One With Loy M. Palapos September 9, 2012 Legislative Advantage There are those who become Lawmakers without being adequately equipped for the responsibility; most particularly those who are thrust to the Legislative Body because of reasons that have nothing to do with public service. Some ulterior motives drive them to seek elective positions that frame the direction and conduct of governance without an iota of exposure nor basic qualification for the task. They either win the voters’ approval because of […]
