MALASIQUI — A municipal wide launching of the supplemental feeding program was undertaken at Malasiqui Central School (District I) and San Julian Central School (District II) here on August 6 by the Abono Party List, Office of Senator Chiz Escudero and the municipal government of Malasiqui led by Mayor Armando C. Domantay, Jr.

In both locations, the launching was attended by school children, parents, teachers and municipal officials who were treated with mais caldo, mais soup, mais ginatan, maja blanca and mais kutsinta.

Dr. Daniel Mamaril, principal of Malasiqui Central School commended the Abono and the municipal government for the project. He said that pupils with “empty stomachs” could not fully grasp their lessons thus the learning process stagnate.

The many times I cried

vir2If to some, crying is a sign of weakness, to me it is a sign of strength and a way of letting out emotions.

I don’t know why, but my lachrymal glands profusely shed out tears whenever I hear gory incidents, when some persons dear to me passed away and when I see street children and poor families living in shanties and squalor environments. Of course, in those moments of shedding out tears, I do it privately and at most confined to the four corners of my room.

There were three private persons (aside from members of my family) whose passing away made me cry. I cried because of the thought that they were gone. I cried because in one way or another they have made a difference in my life- affected me by their personal touch and associations with them.

PhotobucketBy Virgilio Sar. Maganes

URDANETA CITY — “We have not given importance on planting vegetables for our household consumption. Our bagsakan market (wholesale market) sell vegetables coming from the different provinces of Regions I and III and our families here buy vegetables for their consumptions.”

This was said by Mayor Amadeo R. Perez, Jr. as the main reason why he decided to come up with the Organic Vegetable Production Contest which was launched at the Cultural and Sports Center here on August 6.

He said that the project is an off-shoot of the city’s project “Tulungan sa Purok” in 1980 but has to be reinforced to reach more people particularly during the lean months.
