May 28 Is Imus Holiday
IMUS, Cavite — President Benigno S. Aquino III has declared May 28 which falls on a Monday as a special non-working day in this historical capital town in commemoration of the 114th anniversary of Battle of Alapan where the Philippine flag was first unfurled.
The municipality under Mayor Emmanuel L. Maliksi is celebrating National Flag Day (May 28) with a week-long Wagayway (Flag-Wave) Festival in the area.
The town’s landmark festival is a brainchild of the mayor and his father former Governor-now Imus District Congressman Erineo “Ayong” Maliksi.
The President approved the non-working day declaration for Imus last April 27. The declaration was contained in Proclamation 373 which Executive Secretary Paquito N. Ochoa Jr. signed.
“It is fitting and proper that the people of the Municipality of Imus, Cavite, be given full opportunity to celebrate and participate in the occasion with appropriate ceremonies, the proclamation said.
The proclamation was made after Dr, Maria Serena I. Diokno and Ludovico Badoy, officers of the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) endorsed a letter of Mayor Maliksi requesting the holiday,citing the the historical "Battle of Alapan." .
Alapan was the site of the victorious battle of the Filipino revolutionaries where the Philippine Flag sewn by heroine Marcelo Agoncillo in Hongkong received its first "baptism of fire."
The flag was waved in the May 28, 1896 battle as the revolutionaries led by Hipolito Saquilayan fought some 272 Spanish Marine Infantry men.
The glorious battle was the prelude to the continued victories of the revolutionaries which led to the proclamation of the Philippine indepedence on June 12, 1898, officials said.
In recognition of the historical event, Mayor Maliksi, with the support of his administration and Sangguniang Bayan (Town Council), proclaimed Imus as the "Flag Capital of the Philippines" and May 28 as Wagayway Festival Day.
The Wagayway Festival Day will be celebrated with the traditional parade, cultural presentations, musical concerts, song and dance contests,among other activities.
Imus Folk Set To Hold ‘Walk For Peace And Truth’
IMUS, Cavite — A good number of residents in this capital town are expected to turn out early tomorrow morning for the so-called "Walk for Peace and Truth" organized by supporters of Mayor Homer T. Saquilayan.
"Yes, there will be a gathering in the quest for truth and peace," Saquilayan said yesterday as he confirmed his attendance in the event which will begin at 5 a.m.
His supporters assured that the gathering would be peaceful and orderly once it gets going "just like the prayer rally we did in the past."
For his part, Senior Superintendent John C. Bulalacao, Cavite Police Provincial Office (PPO) director, said police presence at the venue of the walk will ensure security and orderliness of the gathering at Bayan Luma.
"I will ask the Imus police under Supt. Hersan H. Mojica to stand guard in the area," said Bulalacao.
Saquilayan said his attendance at the gathering will also add to the orderliness of those participating in the event.
Last Friday, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) issued a resolution scrapping the court order for the ouster of Saquilayan.
In a 19-page resolution, the First Division of Comelec, headed by Commissioner Rene Sarmiento overturned the special order issued by the Regional Trial Court (RTC) Judge Ceasar Mangrobang of Branch 22 after it found discrepancies in its recount of the ballots.
It also said the RTC gravely abused its discretion, when it issued the order since it did not have the necessary grounds.
"Execution should be granted only when these considerations are clearly outweighed by superior circumstances demanding urgency and the above provision requires a statement of those circumstances as a security for their existence," the First Division said.
"Absent any such justifications, the order of execution must be struck down as flawed with grave abuse of discretion," it added.
In his decision Mangrobang declared Emmanuel Maliksi, Saquilayan’s competitor during the previous election as the real winner of the 2010 mayoralty race in Imus, Cavite after the polls were allegedly tampered.
During the said election, Saquilayan was declared the winner by Comelec after garnering 48,181 votes, while Maliksi only received 39,682 votes. (With a report from Samuel P. Medenilla)

More Funding For Cavite Urged
TRECE MARTIRES CITY, Cavite — Cavite 2nd District Board Member Ramon "Jolo" Revilla III is rallying the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) to a concerted action in response to the emergency needs of residents in areas worst-hit by the so-called "Bahagat" ("baha" or flood caused by the "Habagat" or southwest monsoon) event this week.
In his privilege speech, Revilla called for additional funding to rehabilitate the affected areas and help the needy get out of their misery. "With unity and action, everyone can help the affected areas and the people in many ways," he said.
Unknown to many, the coastal towns of Naic, Ternate, Tanza, Rosario, Noveleta, Kawit and Bacoor City and Cavite City were among those worst by the monsoon surges and floods from two weeks of rains caused by the monsoon intensified by typhoons "Gener" and "Haikui."
ALI raises 2012 budget by P10 billion
MANILA, Philippines - Property giant Ayala Land Inc. (ALI) is setting aside an additional P10 billion on top of the original 2012 budget of P37 billion, according to a top company official.
ALI president Antonino Aquino said the additional P10 billion, which will be funded by proceeds from its recent P13.6-billion top-up equity placement and P15-billion bond issue, will largely go to the company’s aggressive landbanking activities.
The company has set aside P36 billion over next two to three years to beef up its landbank to ensure continued growth. The company wants to double its landbank in the next five years from the current 4,000 hectares.
The additional amount also includes ALI’s projected investment this year for its strategic alliance with the Ortigas Group led by Ignacio R. Ortigas.
This ramps up ALI’s total capital spending to a record P47 billion this year as it aims to sustain its high growth trajectory in the long term.
ALI, through its five residential brands, aims to have significant presence in each key city in Metro Manila and replicate the success of its huge master-planned projects in all parts of the country.
ALI serves the high end market through Ayala Land Premier while it also serves the middle-income, affordable and economic housing segments through Alveo Land and Avida Land, respectively. Last year, it branched out into the socialized housing segment via BellaVita.
For this year, ALI is launching 67 new projects with an unprecedented potential sales value of around P90 billion.
Bulk of the new developments will comprise 50 residential projects, equivalent to about 25,000 units across its five brands, to cater to the different segments of the local economic pyramid or 25 percent more than the 20,000 units rolled out in 2010.
ALI plans to penetrate new areas like Cavite, Bulacan, Rizal, Pampanga and major cities in Visayas and Mindanao.
In its commercial leasing business, the group intends to duplicate this strategy of geographic expansion, product diversification and market broadening as it aims to double its gross leasable area by 2014.
It will open three malls this year, including the first phase of the Ayala Center redevelopment, Harbourpoint in Subic and the Centrio mall in Davao.
ALI launched a total of 141,000 sqm of shopping center gross leasable area (GLA) last year, including the expansion of Ayala Center Cebu, renovation of San Antonio PlazaArcade in Makati, the retail component of Ayala Northpoint Technohub in Negros Occidental , Fairview Terraces in Quezon City and The District along Daang Hari in Cavite – which are expected to come on stream in the next couple of years.
It also has in the pipeline some 365,000 sqm of commercial leasing GLA for both office and shopping centers and two more Kukun hotels.
Cavite vies for another Seal of Good Housekeeping award
TRECE MARTIRES CITY, Cavite, Aug 11 (PIA) –-The provincial government will once again vie for the Seal of Good Housekeeping (SGH) award given by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).
The Seal is a mechanism comprising a set of criteria aimed at recognizing local government units with good performance in internal housekeeping, particularly in the areas of planning, sound fiscal management, transparency and accountability, and valuing performance management.
In a letter addressed to all department heads, Efren C. Nazareno, engineer and provincial administrator for External Affairs, said, “Awards and citations play significant role in governance as these recognitions give us, civil servants, fulfillment and validation that our efforts are bringing positive change to our constituents.”
For this, Nazareno asked department heads to prepare and furnish his office a semestral accomplishment report which will cover the period of January to June of this year.
He said the report will be based on the Annual Investment Program format and should be accompanied by a narrative report, among which are pictures, project proposals, minutes of meetings and other pertinent documents as attachments.
Nazareno is certain that they will get another Seal of Good Housekeeping for the province. (RF-PIA 4A, Cavite)
Ano palang naobserbahan n'yong nagbago sa kultura ng Cavite o ng munisipalidid ninyo sa nakalipas na limang taon?
Nakakalungkot mang isipin pero sa "neighborhood" namin, nabura na yung mga tradisyunal na larong Pinoy (folk games) tulad ng tumbang preso at luksong tinik. Yung "Sayaw sa Apoy" naman dine sa Marahan mukha naman ding naging modernisado at mas makulay.
