MAOAY, BANGUED, ABRA  — At least 250 barangay folks are recipients of the medical mission dubbed “Operation We Care” sponsored by the Abra Medical Society (AMS) and Saint Therese of the Child Jesus Parish in Penarrubia, Abra.

The medical mission provided free medical and dental services to the people including consultations, and free medicines. Said medical mission that ran for half day was held at the Barangay Plaza of Maoay, Bangued.

Fr. Tony Ruyan thanked the medical volunteers for their free service to his parishioners especially to the people of Sappaac, Maoay and Calot and said that the mission was a tremendous success in terms of its health impact to the 3 barangays.

“I thanked the AMS and their auxiliaries for their noble deeds and I hope that this medical mission is just the start of a long partnership with the AMS,” Ruyan said.

1080410_845023018841354_1684097901_nDoctors who gave free medical services were Dr. Denise Florence Bragas, Dr. Joselito Bringas, Dr. Nestor Venus, Dr. Alex Bayubay, Dr. Crizelda Ciubal and Dr. Maria Luisa Taverner. They were assisted by the Alliance of Young Nurse Leaders and Advocates (AYNLA) headed by AYNLA Mayor Darren Cariño, the members of the Philippine Nurses Association (PNA) headed by President Katherine Cabunoc and Divine Word College of Bangued (DWCB) Health Sciences Department and Mission Club headed by Dr. Joseph Manuel Radam. Dentists who extended free dental services included Dr. Meynarda Yamat, Dr. Cindy Rose Stimson, Dr. Rhea Dale Bayugo and Dr. Bethany Bernardez.

“It’s really good to see the people in this parish receiving the help and assistance that they need from our medical and dental volunteers and paramedical group, said Dr. Denise Florence Bernos-Bragas, President of AMS. “As health worker I find humanitarian mission to be fulfilling. It made a difference,” she added.

      • a medical mission like this is always funded and supported by the local and national government.
        many thanks to gov,eustaquio bersamin not eric shawn who does not help at all
        putting a surgical tape on your mouth eric shawn would be a great help

        • The medical mission done in bangued unfortunately was not funded by the local and national government. It was due to the request of father ruyan that it came to a reality. If you can ask those volunteers, you will know.

  4. again i pity you all especially Nora who is loser, why i should be thankful for a governor we have bec he is lesser evil compared to others, how could we know that have you read his mind? did you read his mind that he did not think of f_- shit you?. the fact that he is evil lesser nga lng then he can do evil things what others did in looting, murder , lust, illegal gambling, greed of power and betrayal. am i thankful for a leader who posses these traits. i sympathize with you nora evethough im vilmanian you deserve that award. im expecting tagamasid to depend my good friend.

    • So you are waiting for me Eric. This is for you and others who harbor illfeelings towards fellowmen:
      ‘ you will only begin to heal when you let past hurts, FORGIVE those who wronged you and learn to FORGIVE YOURSELF for YOUR MISTAKES.’ Read also Matthew 6:15 how God forgives us. I pray for you.
      My salute to the members and supporters who made the medical mission possible.

    • Many of us bloggers do not understand why you hate too much Gov. Takit wherein he is the best elected Governor we had in the province is it because you see so many things or improvement on the province or is it plain envy.
      You know the things that you see negatively are the ones that Takit inherit from the past Governors.
      we all living in the same province so open your eyes on the bright side and support Governor Takit.if he beat you in previous elections 2016 is around the corner..
      common be a human and have a respect who is governing the province

  5. The Governor has an obligation to serve his constituent and not to be served. Remember people vote you coz they believed in you(takki), now if you fail them; sapsap toyo (its up to you). Look up Governor and say not a single cent was stolen by me sa kaban ng bayan.

  6. Why, are these private organizations that rendered this medical mission couldn’t move without the endorsement/sponsorship/approval of our politicians? How about the concerned government agency like DOH who are receiving/spending billions annually from the gov’t. coffers? What’s their excuse of not being able to render the same outdoor medical services, if there’s any? They have the fund provided for this field activities while these NGOs are just relying from donations, what the hell is the difference? COA, please check their disbursement voucher report if they were really incurring expenses on field medical services when in fact they are just playing majong or tong-it in their home or somewhere. Please stop sleeping now in the noodle soup.

      • These private organizations have missions and visions in making a difference to the life of the impoverished many regardless of their political affiliation or pitiful status in our society. If they allow to be controlled by politics with hidden agenda, they better spit out then their fake advocacy and return the donations they have received from various Samaritans who are expecting them to do the right thing. Karma is still alive and kicking, I tell you that…..

  8. Recipients of this noble medical services don’t be fooled. You should pour out your gratitude or admiration to the volunteers and donors only. Volunteers don’t get paid. They are just doing it not for show but driven by the goodness of their heart. The rest are monthly salaried while others are just honor grabbers or opportunists with a hidden agenda. COA and Budget if you still have a little decency left in your heart, could you also audit their Financial Report to the best of your ability so that private donors and taxpayer’s money would find out where their hard-earned money really goes? NGO operates not only from the pocket of their benefactors but also a subsidy from the national government out of taxpayer’s money. Therefore, they are subject to auditing from both the government auditors and independent auditing entity. Perhaps these NGO staff are also receiving bribe secretly from the politicians without the knowledge of the volunteers, that’s why they’re obligated to be controlled or manipulated at the expense of the donors and of the volunteers. Sobra na ang kahihiyaan natin!

      • I know you’re not syoke ES, and bec. you have also a God, I know that you’ve already forgiven him secretly in your heart as he did, perhaps. Some think that asking apology in public is a sign of weakness, but I think your God thinks otherwise. Don’t worry, he and He understands your feeling.

        Posted by bodowan | July 15, 2014, 2:20 pm
  9. I agree with you GIDEON, COA must do their homework, especially on projects of mayors,from IRA and RA 7171 the golden mine of tobacco producing municipalities. Or are they also enjoying to feed their families with pasoksok? Maconsensya kayo naman!
    For Eric Shawn, the most active blogger, but unfortunately, always the pessimistic n foultfinder. I checked your time of posting and I found out that you are lacking of sleep. Imagine from 1 A.M to 9:30.p.m. No wonder, you have a very poor judgment because lack of sleep makes one unhealthy physically n mentally, causes stress, heart desease, impair judgment, hurts learning process and leads death ( driving).
    You complain as if I know god. Yes I know about your god to be the master deceiver, the one responsible for making mankind corrupt from the original uncoruptable. He deceived Eve, where we inherited sin that causes our endless miseries. Your god is a god of lust: king of greed, envy, violence, hatred, unforgiving, self exultation. N lover of money.
    This is my God whom I know well. I know him because everyday I listen to His loving words. He is a GoD of love, joy and peace. He is also a forgiving God, righteous, faithful,kind and love justice. His name is YHWH, who love the world so much that He gave our Lord Jesus to redeem our sin. Read the bible and you’ll also know the true God. Ask your idol father Ruyan to guide you or ask pastors around, they are more than delighted to help you and FIND THE WAY. Jesus said ” I’m the Way the truth n the Life. No one goes to the Fathet except through Me.

I admire him him because he was able to organize such med outreach program eventhough he is not a politician. Uray met ngat siak no napipintas ti nurse kada doctora ket ag outreach nak met

  10. Oooppsss…..Tagamasid, you’re sharing some important chapters and verses of the Bible but it sounds like you already forgotten some of JC’s reminders on “tooth for a tooth” and “Eye for an Eye” engagement to whomsoever of God’s human creation you have had encountered with. Generally, your thoughts and concerns seemed constructive criticism or very informative as far as I’m concerned, but not all human beings have the same understanding. Forgive me if I misinterpreted you, but perhaps, it’s better if you act like the Bigger Guy here for our friend ES just want to hear more opinions from you in an unusual way that it’s hard for you to resist. However, I suspect that he was just compelled because it seems that PA have had already abandoned us completely. We need someone like you in this forum, therefore, whether you like it or not, you’re the main man now here brother! ES, say sorry to our brother Tagamasid because you didn’t really mean it, will you?..Please?….I know, it takes a real man to say sorry, but I know you are. Only thief politician or any devious wicked government servant can’t do it because they’re not real men. They can’t swallow their demonic false pride!

  11. With the issues of daf and pdaf, i knew all of us here wanted to have a better government led by honest leaders. But for this activity done by our volunteers in the field of health,i want to inform everyone that this is not from the doing of our politicians in abra but due to the concern of some individuals like father who requested and coordinated with the medical people. We are lucky to have individuals like them who are willing to help, these doctors, dentist and health care workers can earn in their clinics during that time but opted to volunteer and be of help without compensation. We may be living in an imperfect world but we must not forget that there are still few who will devote their time to help especially the less fortunate.

    Posted by karen | July 14, 2014, 2:58 am
  12. Agree with you karen. We should appreciate and be thankful of the good deeds done by others. We should not criticize those individuals who just wanted to help. Instead of making a fuss, let us join hands and start doing our part, let us help those who are in need. Let’s start with ourselves for a better tomorrow.

      • Some of these health care workers may be working in the provincial hospital but it doesn’t mean they are stealing from the government. The PMA organization is a different body not govern by politicians. It is a separate entity, they have their own funds not given by the government. And aside from that not all of these healthcare workers practices their craft in abra, you should do your research before you make a comment as such.

        Posted by strike | July 14, 2014, 5:12 pm
      • I do appreciate the assistance these doctors rendered to the community. With the time they had shared despite their hectic schedules in the hospitals and clinics, they did find time to share their craft for free. I hope there will be more activities/ medical missions that will be of benefit to those who are less fortunate who can not afford consultations for a cost. Hopefully, i will be of help to them when they go to our community for medical mission either that activity is supported or not by the government. (“,)

        • You have a good heart too ma’am Amy. Whether this noble mission is tainted with dirty politics or not, you don’t care and still you do want also to make a difference to the lives of our underprivileged constituents. If you were given a chance, to what specific municipality you want to render your free service first? I think it doesn’t hurt if you continue to be brutally or bravely honest now…..I’m expecting you to be direct and tell us where your heart says to serve with…Everybody has their own first preference if they were given a choice, isn’t it ma’am? After all, we are just using alias names if you think you will offend other municipalities.

  13. I’m just wondering why most of us judge these individuals and their organizations. Most of them if not all of them, only wanted to help. Have you done your share to help your neighbors, especially the needy? If so, you should continue your good deeds, if not yer, you should start now. Hopefully, as you give to others and do your part, may it not be tarnish with negative comments. We should learn to appreciate the positive things that we see around us. To CHANGE for a better future, we should start into ourselves.

    • “These individuals” refers to the volunteers.
      PMA refers to philippine medical association and abra medical society is under PMA which is not subsidized by the local/provincial/national government.

  14. Karen/Strike: Pardon me for being rude but I’m just wondering if you’re talking on behalf of the good Samaritans/volunteers/donors. If not, who are you representing of, if you don’t mind asking? If you’re representing the bad egg politicians or untrusted COA personnel, forget it because you never see the dirty side of politics or the connivance of the crocodiles who never satisfied in devouring what intended to the impoverished citizens of this province. Nice talking to you though…..Thanks….

    Posted by kitkitoting | July 14, 2014, 7:04 pm
    • To answer your question kitkitoting, i am for the volunteers. These individuals/organizations whom I’m referring to belonged to the medical institution which are being criticized by our good critics. I am glad for the likes of them who are there to help even without any compensation. The CHANGE part of the message is for everyone though. For the politicians and the likes, hope they too will change for the better.

  15. Thanks for the reminder and the kind words GIDEON.The positive reaction of ES for your suggestion justifies the Truth ‘ soft words melt the heart.’ I wish I had the tact both of you and sir PD possessed. I wish further that PA Is not in serious health problem so we ll soon hear AGAIN his inspiring thoughts. Going back to the heavy words in response to ES who seem to listen only to himself, even our Lord who is’ slow in anger’ attacked the money changer in the synagogue and John the baptize called the strict Law-abiding Pharisees ‘brood of viper.’
    The medical mission conducted was really a noble one worthy to be appreciated. If ever politicians contributed for the purpose, it should also be appreciated because it’s their duty to help their constituents.The problem with most of us is that we are always doubtful with the integrity of our ‘honorables’. However Politicians can not blame us because while we see them live in luxury, most of us remain wallowing in poverty. The biggest examples are these shameless thief lawmakers n others leaders including Gloria who robbed our money purposely to uplift our miserable plight. But thanks to the ‘ tuwid na daan program’ we are beginning to witness changes which hopefully ushered us to a better Philippines with disciplined politicians worthy to be called honorables.

  16. Don’t say that! All the words of wisdom you have heard or read, written or spoken by our genius philosophers or anybody gifted with a bright mind, were all taken from the Bible. If you read and analyze the Constitution of any Country, perhaps you won’t also admit that they were based on the Bible. How did your parents get married and produced you if not their vows based from the Bible which they solemnly swore in front of any authorized God’s representative? Don’t tell me that they were not married for it explains now the way your thinking operates.

    • Bodwan no human can do religion and politics at the same time..the rule of the thumb is you cannot mix religion to politics
      Do you think God like what your doing
      Getting God for a discussion like this??

      Posted by ? | July 15, 2014, 4:58 pm
      • When we live our daily life according to our religions then why would we separate it when it comes to politics? We all must agree that politics is also a part of life and when the rest of the things in your life are based upon your religious teachings then why not politics? Every religion teaches honesty, sincerity and good against evil, if politics will not have religion it means it wont have these teachings which will eventually end up in a corrupt environment for the society and the country.

        Posted by kawitan | July 15, 2014, 7:30 pm
      • I’m so sorry if ever I offended you ?. All I know is: God is Omnipotent, Omniscience, and Omnipresent. I’m sure He likes what I’m doing because any discussion requires moral aspects which others lack especially to some other politicians entrusted or used by Him to take care of His people. Again, my apologies……

  17. This mix is dangerous
    Religion is where morals come from. Morals always come together with judgements – what is right and what is wrong. When people allow themselves to judge others – unreasonable arguments appear. Judgments are subjective, they are based on individual beliefs and ideas. Politics and law cannot allow themselves to be subjective. A court and a judge operate according to laws that do not come from the bible, otherwise we would not have jails but wait till god punishes a murderer. And we would not have Presidents, we’d have a king, whose legitimacy would be based on our belief that he is a representative of god. Mixing politics and religion is what gave us the holy inquisition, crusades and jihad. Get real, people.

    • Gaks ,have you ever thought a society or a country without the intervention of religion? Even the Muslims or Buddhists could not separate their affair with their State, how much more a Christian country like us? Why don’t you throw your dogmatic ideas to the Catholic Priests who are always vocal to our government particularly to the thief politicians? The authorities could not stop them because they’re protected from the provisions of “Freedom of Speech” law, and you want us now to listen you, is that it, Sir?

      Posted by kitkitoting | July 15, 2014, 9:44 pm
      • Government and Religion are ‘Earth’ and ‘sky’
        Religion and Government have two different purpose, two different origins, two different studies, even the way to carry those out are different(but similar because both have certain order and task that coincidently similar)
        First of all, let’s study each purpose. The purpose of religion is to educate everyone the ‘rights'(like tolerance) from ‘wrong'(like bigotry), build someone’s strength physiologically, strong will, and reflection to people that believe in religion(at least to someone that still humble). While Government gives everyone laws and order, consistency of standard, Diplomacy in official and formal way, and protect everyone in that government via Police(or prefect in Roman government), Fireman, and all civil service organizations.
        Secondly, It’s applications. Religion is exist since the beginning of earth and birth of first philosophies. These philosophies and religion constantly changing and end up be an ideology of group of people also give crude estimation of something someone just saw so it can be described. However, despite the usefulness and give someone’s strength mentally, religions are getting more and more old fashioned(except Salomo’s proverbs) and not suitable for more progressive open-minded and tolerant societies. While governments application is actually, the application of all sides of knowledge(including science, history, primordial[which often happen], religion, philosophy, and ideology[which almost never happen])
        lastly, actually mine random nickname and opinion for each. I love to nickname religion as the modern mythology(though some must admit from history), while religion as ‘a child that lead everyone with everyone lead the child’. Religion is good or bad depending of who ‘use’ the religion, while government depends on who operate and live in it.
        Based on those, religion should shove far away from politics! If both mixed means fiasco in government and result in loss of country or if lucky enough(like Vatican City), have indeed small country zone(which make it not visible enough to everyone except nearby to see it)

        Posted by GAKONG | July 15, 2014, 10:34 pm
    • “A court and judge operate according to laws”? Do you really believe in most of our courts and judges? Then we should be living in paradise, not here in Abra or the Philippines.

  18. Your general analysis is impressive and very informative, sir. However, our friend Tagamasid and others here are not using this venue for purely imparting/sharing us the general core of Religion, they call it Sermon. They are just citing some chapters and verses of the Bible in their argument just to emphasize their point as sign of humility and respect to the authors. I hope this is not so hard to accept since their only intention is to awaken us with some biblical principles that might sway the intellectual perception of our politicians who are backsliding because of greed and power. If not or not now, wouldn’t be nice if other readers especially the young ones could learn something from these biblical perspective that may broaden their innate love to their community in particular and to their Country in general?

  20. For the longest time I have observed in the various threads in Abrenian.com the name-calling and utter disrespect for the opinions and observations of others. This is one the the reasons why I have stopped posting comments and observations. I would like to believe that we still live in a vibrant democracy and that each of us has the right to express his or her opinion without the fear of being bashed and insulted. It is one thing to believe in your way of thinking; it is another to believe yours is the only way. Each of us must exercise restraint and be more tolerant of the views of others. I may not always believe what a person says, but I will always defend his right to say it.
    I welcome any undertaking that will redound to the benefit of our people. The medical mission was a joint effort of the AMS and the parish headed by Fr. Tony Ruyan. It benefitted 250 people, mostly indigents. I cannot for the life of me, see anything wrong with it. Several doctors, dentists and nurses gave their services freely. I know a doctor, a nurse and a dentist personally. I had the privilege of working with that doctor in an international service organization. He is one of the simplest, humblest and most sincere person I have met in my life. He has the passion to serve. To this day, he lives a very simple and modest life. He and the rest do not deserve the sweeping allegations coming from some quarters that put to question their integrity.
    I also welcome the “good news” anywhere, any time and from anyone. I welcome the “good news” brought to us by Tagamasid, Bodowan and others. As Christians, we are told not only to read the “good news” but to live it and to spread it to others. I would like to personally thank Tagamasid, Bodowan and others who remind us every now and then.
    We are all on borrowed time. Perhaps, when we are young and strong and have all the means to survive, we may take God and religion for granted. But there comes a time in each of our lives when we will feel the burden. Believe me, as sure as the sun rises every morning, when that time comes in your life, you will seek God in everything you do. You will seek the comfort and refuge that you can only find in HIM. It does not matter what religious group you belong to as long as you believe in God.
    Some say religion and politics don’t mix and I respect their opinion. But I believe that God is the only constant. He is here, there and everywhere. Perhaps, we are in such a mess because our leaders believe that God and government do not mix. Perhaps, we are in such a rut because our leaders do not believe that God sees everything and knows everything. Perhaps, we have never really progressed because our leaders believe that the 10 Commandments are mere suggestions. Perhaps, it is about time we put God above all else in our lives. Perhaps.

    • Religious is Holiness, while Politics is an Evil act, you kill for the interest of power and you ruin others for your personal interest.
      In a country where religion and politics is mixed, there is always confusion, cheaters, corruption, inequality and injustice…. Why? Because religiously they will tell you that God will do it or leave everything to God, but the reality is that the bad politicians will commit crimes and speak religiously to calm the situation after their bad intentional act.

  21. Finally the long ‘ street fights’ subsided. We are now glad to hear positive comments leading to issue on good governance against greed of power and wealth. My sincerest gratitude to the return of sirs Pedro abrenio, Bodowan , etc. to share their thoughts on this particular issue. There are different opinions on the effects of religion on politics /politicians.and each one”s should be respected. I wish to emphasize here that there was no particular religion mentioned in my earlier post. I often used bible verses to support points which are believed important for our daily healthful relationship with others and appropriate guidance on good governance. Please be it known that our Lord Jesus did not only used inside the church but every opportunity, every place, including seaside, hills, etc., to explain the Good News.
    Let me share my little research on Pres. George Washington, the first president of America, considered the father of USA and probably the father of democracy and the first president who took his oath with the holy bible in his hand. He said ” it is impossible to rule the world without God and the Bible.” From this TRUTH, trusting the ultimate power of GOD and the guidance of His Word, the Bible, USA became the show window of democracy, with abundant of peace and prosperity. Yes, I truly believe, that in man, many things are impossible but with God, every good things is possible. Trusting God by our leaders is our only hope for good governance leading us for a better life.

    • We are the new breeds of generations and facing a hectic era of mixing religion to politics
      all of us has a divided approach especially if you keep listening to people that uses biblical words to disguise their identity to be look good
      we should not support these people nor we should allow such kind of people to perform such hideous activities in politics so we can moved to path of truth
      Whenever we choose a leader, we must think only about what are the current issues that we are facing, what kind of development we need. And we should choose any politician, on the basis of their quality so that they can fulfil our expectations

      • Corruption is the price we ALWAYS pay for democracy AND has been spreading over OUR COUNTRY like A cancer. Most of the people are very much used to it and trying to make handsome money without any truthful effort. . As we all know DEMOCRACY stands for” by the people, of the people and for the people.But now the meaning of DEMOCRACY has been totally changed and it is CORRUPTION is by the people, of the people and for the people. This is actually due to us but we are blaming the government.As taking BRIBE is a crime like wise giving bribe is also a crime and both culprits are equally involved. Now corruption is spreading in each and every corner of our country like a dreadful disease

  24. To all brothers who believed in the Holy Word,justice and the fruits of Spirit, let us take heart and not to be couraged against insults and hatred. Even our Lord Jesus did not received kindness and gratitude in spite of so much love and miracles given to uplift mankind’s miseries.Instead, let us pray for these people for their peace and repentance.

    Anyway, we received a good news for our province – the appointment of governor Taquit by pres.Pinoy as chairman for region CAR development. This justifies that voters of Abra made the correct decision with his consistent overwhelming victory. How about a write up by our journalists in Abra about this accomplishment where we shall exchange opinions on the HOW, WHY, and its impact to Abrenians lives .

    Posted by TAGAMASID | July 19, 2014, 6:47 am
    • Hopefully his advisers didn’t make a mistake. If all allegations against the gov. are true, how could he make an impact for CAR development? I was expecting someone with untainted dignity to do the honor, but it looks like his advisers were just after their political advantage in contrary to the much-awaited economic upliftment of our poor province. The gov’s brother was the alleged author of the unconstitutionality of the President’s DAP but look what’s going on now. Does the President aware to all of these? I hope I’m just wrong to all of what I’ve said. My apologies….

    Abra Gov Bersamin is new RDC Chairman
    By: Redjie Melvic Cawis
    Friday 18th of July 2014

    BANGUED, Abra, July 18(PIA)– Abra Gov. Eustaquio Bersamin is appointed by President Benigno Aquino III as the new chairman of the Cordillera Regional Development Council.
    The announcement was made during the 27th Cordillera Month celebration last July 15 which was hosted by the province of Abra thru the RDC Economic Development Sectoral Committee.
    Ifugao Congressman Teddy Baguilat Jr. said that the appointment of Bersamin as chairman would be a boost in the attainment of the Cordillera Autonomy. He believes that the advocacy to the pursuit of regional autonomy would be stronger with the RDC having a leader that would be the messenger or liaison of the region to the president as far as development is concerned.
    The priority of the RDC is the push for autonomy and being the chair gives him (Bersamin) the responsibility to lead in the drive for regional autonomy in the whole of the Cordillera region but specifically the province of Abra, said Baguilat.
    Bersamin, in an interview, vowed that as the newly appointed RDC Chair, he will double the efforts of the actions of the RDC towards the pursuit of Cordillera autonomy. He assured that he will be taking the lead in the province of Abra for more information education campaign activities to be conducted in the grassroots level.
    Baguilat also stressed that the selection of Bersamin as RDC chair underwent a process by a screening committee which include the Cordillera congressmen and other stakeholders.
    Meanwhile, National Economic and Development Authority and RDC Vice Chair and Regional Director Milagros Rimando said that the celebration of the Cordillera for the first time in Abra is a historic since the considered father of Cordillera Autonomy, rebel priest Conrado Balweg, hailed from the province, and meaningful with the announcement of Bersamin as the new RDC chairperson.(JDP/RMC-PIA CAR)

  28. ‘ to err is human, to forgive is Devine’. Well accepted brother KAWITAN and thanks for posting about the appointment of gov. Bersamin as RDC Chair. So the appointment had undergone a certain process with the involvement of Cordillera leaders, meaning these leaders have so much trust to the integrity of our governor.
    Several months ago I also expressed my displeasure on substandard projects where our gov. Is accountable. But I realized that these were not his personal shortcoming but to people whom he trusted. His enormous accomplishments for peace and infra overshadowed these unfavorable neglect. Hence, let us give him our support, inspiring him to do farther for a better Abra n entire Cordillera in general. His project of constructing road from Abra to Baguio ( benguet) for example will be a great advantage for us. Let us suggest to him other projects which we believe necessary to uplift socioeconomic life .I’m sure he will listen as I experienced. I felt that my area was neglected so I requested him to hear our problems. He promised to study the problems and solved it even though the request was only done through letter.
    Our province is endowed with great reservoir of natural resources. We have abundant water . If only dam, even mini dams are made in the countless tributaries, farmers could use these to improve not only rice harvest, but could have tree planting, animal raising, fishponds, banana plantations ,etc Gimilina tree for example, a quality tree, can be harvested in less than 3 yrs; Mindanao use 7 yrs old for electric post. These simple projects if implemented by local executives will surely improve economic life of our farmers.
    The best thing we can do to achieve these is to hear the cry of sir P Abrenio, let us work together to select deserving leaders by taking courage to campaign for them; let us start come 2016.

    • I am amazed that our Gov. Estaquio Bersamin has been appointed as the new chairman of the Cordillera Regional Development Council.
      I am hoping that the gap between the cities and the countryside be bridged by development under the leadership of our Governor
      the main reason of this gap is unequal investment between city and rural areas. Cordillera region for example, covers a very large area. Due to the bias in the development in the coastal areas and big cities, the government devotes more investment to these places. The investment, undoubtedly, is repaid by the rapid development of THE economy and finance in these cities. However, this is not the case in the rural areas and the remote regions. The lack of investment barriers the productivity and economic development as well as sharpens the gap between the city and rural areas
      The low education level in the rural areas contributes partly to the gap of living. Education, undoubtedly, is the prime force of productivity. Keeping this in mind, many countries and governments give the priority to the development of education. However, the education levels in the countryside still keeps very low. The enrollment of primary schools and secondary schools is much lower compared with the advanced regions, not to mention the developed countries in the world. Without good education, the development of THE economy and technology would be a day-dream which is difficult to be realized.
      the influx of workers from the countryside to the city deteriorates the undeveloped condition in the rural areas. In essence, there are many temptations luring those talented people to settle down in the city with the hope of approaching more job opportunities, cultural activities, sporting events, you name them. Therefore, even those well-educated people who are originated from the countryside intend to live a dynamic city life instead of returning to face the static countryside view. If this situation continues, it will lead to A serious imbalance in economical and regional development of rural areas.
      Hence, our government matuwid na daan has trying their best to minimize the gap as soon as possible. First, balance the investment between the cities and rural areas
      as well as let more people realize the latent capacity of rural areas in order to attract talent and investment. To be more specific, by working out some favorable policies such as low prices of land for industrial uses, with the combination of the low cost of workforce, investors, understandably, are willing to establish factories in the countryside. As a consequence, the improvement In the employment situation will enormously help pull back some intellectuals and lessen the gap. In addition, the education level should be improved; especially the governments should put much MORE effort Into raising high quality people.

      • First i would like to congratulate our Gov.Estaquio Bersamin for being appointed as the new Chairman of the cordillera Regional development council and hoping that you had the eyes SIR in looking in Maintaining the traditional agricultural role of the countryside is essential. We should not only support local traditions and sense of identity, but also reinforce a natural division of labor between the rural and the urban. Even as modern economies continue to move towards service jobs and industries, our basic needs – including that of eating – will continue to exist and be met through agricultural production. The rural is best equipped to meet these needs. We should invest in smaller agricultural schemes that follow traditional practices, invest in people and the environment that supports them, and offer the health and animal welfare advantages of less intensive food production and processing practices. This is a much better alternative to large-scale intensive farming and diversification schemes that are often purely profit motivated and may rely for labor not on local inhabitants but on gangs of cheap laborers.

      • 1. Historical Background

        Bangued is a first class municipality in the province of Abra in the Cordillera Administrative Region of the Philippines. According to the 2000 census, it has a population of 42,358 in 8,071 households. The government is aiming to put Bangued into higher standard and on the way of becoming a component city, and Cordillera Region’s third city after Baguio City and Tabuk, Kalinga.

        The name of Bangued means “roadblock”. It was established as a regular town in 1598 and was made the seat of the provincial government of Abra on July 25, 1861. The inauguration coincided with the feast day of Saint James the Great.

        The early settlers were the Tingguians belonging to the Bago, Itneg, Masadjit, lbanao, Indayas tribes, who latter intermarried with the immigrants from Ilocos Sur. The Tingguians opposed the Christianization introduced by the Spanish friars who penetrated the eastern settlements. The Tingguian residents prevented the Spaniards from penetrating their area of which they placed roadblocks on all roads leading to the place. They also cut large logs and threw them to the Abra River to prevent the incoming colonizers from entering the area with the use of their boats and bamboo rafts. These logs were made as obstacles and big rocks were placed along the roads which the natives called “bangen”, meaning obstacles.

        When the conquistadores, led by Juan de Salcedo, decided to penetrate the area, they proceeded eastward and saw for themselves the big logs along the Abra River and the big stones which were placed, blocking all roads leading to the community. The Salcedo’s subaltern happened to meet one of the natives and asked what was the name of the place and thinking that they were inquiring about the big stones that were placed on the roads, he answered “bangen” and the subaltern jotted down on his notebook about the word.

        The Spaniards were successful in their attempt to penetrate the inner communities in the east by removing the obstacles saying in Spanish “Abra ese obstucus” and it was in that happening when they developed the area and established the towns and barangays. The place where they found many obstacles, they named it “Bangen” and the province they called it “Abra”.

        When the Americans colonized the country and established the civil government, the town’s name was modified to “Bangued”.

  35. “Don’t throw your jewels to the pigs, they only trample it” the Scropture. But I know that there are good sheep ready to obey the to the call of the good shepherd. Sorry to note that there are people who are educated but allowed themselves to be enfluenced by the less fortunate. Pudno tay kunada ‘ adu dagiti ti nga nakaadal, ngem awan sursuroda.’ Worst , some people claimed to be Christians but refused to believe the Word of God – the Bible.; they prefer to believe in SOME church doctrine based on traditions n teachings rather the Truth. MY GOD IS NOT SATAN, the master deveiver, BUT My GOD IS THE TRUE GOD OF LOVE, JUSTICE, RIGHTEOUSNESS N PEACE.
    Again, governor Takit is no saint; he is a sinner like all of us. But he is our governor, the only gov of our province receiving overwhelming votes for 3 terms. Abrenians gave their trust and leaders of Cordellera also have seen his unmatched innetiative for development, hence they voted him to lead the entire region’s development. With this trust of confidence given including the blessing of no less than the pres. of Pinas, we should be proud of the honor. It is our opportunity to give our support to prove that Abra deserve that honor. How could a father doing so much for the province received words unfit even for a beggar. Some people pretend to be better, blameless, but it appears that these are just exposing sour grapes, jealousy, hatred n maybe their failure n frustrations to achieve their selfish goal to win the people’s mandate. Borrowing the words of Sir P. Abrenio, ‘ I pity your generation.’
    For those who refuse to believe in the Bible. Refusing to believe is refusing the existence of the Almighty God. MAN WITHOUT GOD IS NOTHING. TO prove how precious the Bible is, no other books was translated in so many languages than this inspired word of God.

    The whole bible was translated into 392 languages
    Testaments was translated into 1023 languages n dialects
    Portions were translated into 883 languages n dialects. TOTAL 2287 languages n dialects.

Hey…you can not blame Tagamasid for like others who are asking favor just to expedite the on-going/proposed project in their Municipality need to kiss ass sometimes. That’s how he loves his community by doing whatever it takes (like what you’re doing now to him) even to his personal degradation. So please just understand him…..Sorry Tags if misinterpreted you.
