History of Bais City, Negros Oriental, Philippines
How Bais got its name is a legend in itself.
- Source: www.godumaguete.com : verbatim
"When the fertile flatlands and rich fishing grounds were reported to the Spanish colonizers after they arrived in the Philippines, an expedition headed by a Spanish engineer was sent to the area to get its name and pinpoint its exact location, as well as prepare a map of the island. They happened to enter the mouth of the river in the area and saw some people gathering the abundant fresh water eel locally called “Bais” that were caught in their fish traps.
Upon seeing the fishermen, the Spaniard asked in his native tongue: “Como se llama este lugar?” (What is the name of this place?). Failing to understand the engineer of course, and thinking that he was asking for the name of the fish caught, the fisherman answered curtly, “bais”. The Spaniard therefore, recorded the name “Bais” as the name of the place.
After the discovery of the island by the Spanish conquistadores, several of them moved to Negros on account of the high fertility of the flatlands of Bais. Many came and settled in the area and planted sugar cane, thus producing “moscovado” (sugar from their mills) which was exported to Spain via Iloilo, which then was the principal shipping point in the Visayas. This was loaded in large sailboats called Lurcha or Batel.
On January 20, 1848, Gov. Gen. Don Narciso Claveria entrusted the Island of Negros to the Recollects, then sent Missionaries to Negros in 1849. Bais was created as a town in 1849. In 1850, Bais was only a visita under the civil and ecclesiastical jurisdiction of the town of Tanjay. Later, it became a barrio of Manjuyod with the tribunal as its only strongly built structure.
The first village chapel was built of light materials and the construction of a concrete church started only in 1850 when Father Guillermo Garcia del Carmen became parish priest. In 1885, Father Manuel Alonzo took over the parish.
In 1865, hydraulic mills were installed in Bais, Bago, Bacolod, La Carlota, Pontevedra, Granada, Minuluan and Silay; Altogether they were capable of milling 100 piculs of sugar in 12 hours. These machineries replaced the primitive wooden mills. From 1865, the progress of Bais started with such increasing economic activities, particularly in sugar production, until 1896 when the Philippine Revolution broke out.
The Revolution in Negros started in November 5, 1898, Gen. Juan Araneta led the resistance movement against the Spaniards. Two days later, in Bacolod, the Spanish forces in Negros surrendered to Aniceto Lacson y Ledesma, Commander in Chief of the Filipino Forces in Northern Negros. A Cantonal Government was then established and Gen. Araneta became the Secretary of War.
When the American Forces arrived, Gen. Araneta counseled the Cantonal Government to submit to the American invaders. Occidental and Oriental Negros which were separated in 1890, were again united until the establishment of a civil government by Americans in 1901.
Bais became a bustling town after the war, when the Americans replaced the Spanish regime in the Philippines.
Negros Oriental became a province with the late Demetrio Larena of Bais holding the distinction as its first governor. It was during this epoch in 1901, that Bais realized a dream come true when she was raised politically from a barrio to a full town hood; Emilio Teves served as its first Municipal Mayor.
During World War II, Bais was the headquarters of the guerilla forces under Maj. Placido Ausejo, a constabulary officer. A Japanese garrison was stationed in the town for sometime. When the Americans landed in Dumaguete the enemy withdrew. Fierce fighting took place only in the southwestern coastline and mountain areas of Negros Oriental.
The town was created as a Charted City by virtue of Republic Act No. 5544. approved Sept. 9, 1968. Genaro Goni was the first city mayor.
On September 9, 1968, Philippine President Ferdinand E. Marcos officially and personally proclaimed Bais as a city."

Bais Radio 105.5 RADYO NATIN FM; (address ???, phone number???)
Manila Broadcasting Company, the mother station of DZRH-AM and other radio network like AKSYON RADYO, YES-FM, LOVE RADIO and HOT-FM has another network that could help business establishments here in the city of Bais to reach your prospective costumers in areas that are beyond the reach of the city based radio stations in Dumaguete City. These are the places like Tanjay City, Amlan, San Jose, Pamplona, Mabinay, Manjuyod, Bindoy and the mountainous part of Jimalalud, La Libertad and Guihulngan. We are even reaching the areas in Southern Cebu province like Malabuyoc, Genatilan, Santander, Samboan and Oslob.
We are talking about Bais Radio 105.5 RADYO NATIN FM. This locally managed radio station is operating with a power of 500 Watts that can help your prospective customers in the province of Negros Oriental to patronize your products or establishment. That is something that cannot be done by those radio stations in Dumaguete City, no matter how powerful their transmitters might be. One reason is listeners’ preference. They may reach Mindanao, Palawan and Indonesia, but, are they listened to those areas?
Modesty aside, it is also a fact that wherever RADYO NATIN FM is, we are the most listened-to FM radio station. And this claim is easily verifiable. One has to walk on the streets of Bais City and to its barangays and one will know which FM station is the most listened-to in our hometown.

Natural Resources of Bais City, Negros Oriental, Philippines
- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

Seaweed farming intensified
BY MARICAR ARANAS
The Provincial Fisheries and Aquatic Resources office is expanding seaweed farming in all coastal barangays in Negros Oriental, Provincial Fishery Officer Leonardo Aro said.
The seaweed farmers in Bais City and Manjuyod are now charging P38 per kilo of dried seaweeds to buyers from Cebu for the international market. The dried seaweeds that are being used as ingredients for food, for industrial applications and as fertilizers are exported to Korea, Japan and China.
Aro said seaweed farms are located in Bais City and Manjuyod and patches of farms in other neighboring municipalities. The demand is high but the supply is very low because of the limited production, he said.
He added that they are expanding the program on seaweed farming to interested individuals. They have put up a seaweed farm in Barangay Tapon Norte in the town of San Jose in cooperation with the local government unit, he added.
He emphasized the cooperation of the local government units, which, he said, are very vital in terms of monitoring and security of the identified seaweed farm. Aro said the fishery technicians in every municipality will be tasked to conduct the training and regular monitoring of the project. They also give incentives to fishermen who would go into seaweed farming as part of the program.
Aro said seaweeds are very important in the aquaculture because they feed on fish and served as shelter for small fishes. Some farmers use nets to protect the seaweeds from big fish.
Aro also expressed fears about possible effects of El Niño phenomenon on seaweed production. He said seaweeds usually develop white spots on their leaf and stems that will cause the deterioration of its production.
He encouraged the seaweed farmers to move their location to a deeper sea area, so that it will not be easily affected by the increase temperature of the ocean.
Aro said they will conduct another evaluation along coastal barangays in the province, to determine the areas that are good for seaweed production. He said an area that shows presence of wild seaweeds indicates that it is suitable for seaweed culture
