Mouthpiece absolves mayor in tire clamp raps

By: Wenceslao E. Mateo Jr.

THE political spokesman of Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog said the latter could not be held liable for signing the purchase order for the six tire clamps in 2012.

Jeffrey Celiz spewed legalese as he defended Mabilog from the criminal and administrative charges filed by Councilor Plaridel Nava before the Office of the Ombudsman relative to the tire clamp deal.

“If there is anyone among the respondents in Councilor Plaridel Nava’s charges before the Ombudsman that could be said to be guilty, the mayor is definitely not one of them,” Celiz said in a press conference.

THE DEPARTMENT of Education (DepED) in Region 6 will conduct a two-day conference-workshop on the revised criteria for the selection of Brigada Eskwela Best School Implementors from April 25 to 26 in this city.

Dr. Eden Deriada said the activity will be participated by some 150 Adopt-A-School Program/Brigada Eskwela coordinators, selected elementary and secondary school principals, and district supervisors from the 18 divisions of the region.

Aside from updates on the revised criteria, Deriada said the activity will provide a venue to ask and hear the experiences and best practices of participants in implementing the program in their respective schools.

Since 2004, the DepEd has been recognizing the Brigada Eskwela Best Implementors through the Adopt-A- School program.

The ASP Secretariat has revised the criteria as a result of the consultation meeting with the ASP Regional Coordinators in November last year at Cebu City and as part of its effort to further improve the selection process, according to a DepEd press report.

The revised criteria will be implemented this school year 2012-2013.

In a national awarding held last year, two schools from the region were recognized as Brigada Eskwela Hall of Fame awardees after they were chosen as Best School Implementors in the region for three consecutive years. These are the Minuyan Elementary School of Murcia in Negros Occidental and Maayon National High School in Maayon, Capiz.

Brigada Eskwela, also known as the National Schools Maintenance, ensures that public schools in the country are ready for the opening of school year in June through the support and cooperation of all education stakeholders both from the private and public sectors. This year, it will be held from May 21 to 26.

Man of destiny

By: Limuel S. Celebria

THIS MAY be a bit premature (quite, actually), but I have a good feeling this country will finally be in the hands of a good, caring, and decisive leader after 2016. And I’m talking about the guy who actually didn’t want to become president because he is too old and has no money to run a campaign. Read more...
