The Philippines has been a "decentralized" form of government since 1991, contrary to what most Filipinos think. Ever since the creation of Republic Act 7160, each LGU is responsible for its own domain. Even the smallest LGU the barangay creates its own Budget. It is not dependent on handouts from the city, municipality or province. "IMPERIAL MANILA IS A MYTH!", it does not exist anymore. The Philippine budget formulation system is not centralized. "Budgetary planning has been DECENTRALIZED since 1991". It is the responsibility of each LGU to submit their budgetary needs for review. Failure to submit is the problem.

Allows us to live Long and Prosper!



We are one with Flora. Throughout time humans and the animal kingdom have relied on the healing power of herbs. We used them in several ways: we have ingested them, rubbed them on our bodies, bathed in them, even used them in our cooking to flavor our foods.

Wars of ancient history were about possessions, territory, power, control, family, betrayal, lover's quarrel, politics and sometimes religion.

But we are in the Modern era and supposedly more educated and enlightened .

Think about this. Don't just brush off these questions.

  • Why is RELIGION still involved in WARS? Isn't religion supposed to be about PEACE?
  • Ask yourself; What religion always campaign to have its religious laws be accepted as government laws, always involved in wars and consistently causing WARS, yet insists that it's a religion of peace?

WHY??

There are only two kinds of people who teach tolerance:
  1. The Bullies. They want you to tolerate them so they can continue to maliciously deprive you. Do not believe these bullies teaching tolerance, saying that it’s the path to prevent hatred and prejudice.
  2. The victims who are waiting for the right moment to retaliate. They can’t win yet, so they tolerate.

Geography of Olutanga, Zamboanga Sibugay, Philippines

Olutanga is a municipality on west side of the island of Olutanga.

Location of Olutanga, Zamboanga Sibugay, Philippines

Olutanga is one of the municipalities in the island of Olutanga. There are 3 municipalities in the island of Olutanga:

  1. Mabuhay
  2. Olutanga
  3. Talusan.

History of Olutanga, Zamboanga Sibugay, Philippines

Olutanga (the whole island) was formerly a regular barangay of the Municipality of Alicia. On November 17, 1957, Olutanga barangay was elevated into a municipal status, with a juridical personality by virtue of Executive Order # 274, enunciated then by the late President Carlos P. Gracia. Originally, Olutanga was attributed to the whole island itself. However, ten years later on May 18, 1967 the barangay of Mabuhay on the north-eastern side of the island, was created into a municipality by virtue of Republic Act No. 4876. Twenty (20) years later, on November 11, 1977, the Municipality of Talusan was created by virtue of Presidential Degree No. 1237 signed by President Ferdinand E. Marcos. This new Municipality was carved from the Municipality of Olutanga representing the northwestern sector of the island.

The first appointed Municipal Mayor was Honorable Eufemio Quijano. He was later elected as Municipal Mayor, but he served only served for one term. The next Mayor elected was Hon. Gonzalo B. Pidor who served for two terms from 1964 to 1971. He was followed by Hon. Cecilio C. Macion, 1972 to the EDSA Revolution era. Then, in the 1993 local election Dr. Joel G. Capotulan was elected as the Mayor.

Long time ago, before the Spaniards came to the country, the island of Olutanga was inhabited by a native tribe, under the leadership at Panglima Santikan and his wife Indah Dindah. This tribe were known as “LUTANGAN”, the origin of the name of the island Olutanga. The main economic activities of this tribe was fishing and some “slash and burn” farming. The island then was dominantly covered with virgin and verdant forest. The Lutangans, because of their nomadic character and love of the sea, wondered from coast to coast around the island in search of rich fishing grounds. It was only during the Spanish era, that the Lutangans had started to live semi – permanently along the sea shores. Then as years passed, the Tausogs, Samals and the other tribes came to live in the island, which was later named Olutanga after the Lutangan tribe. The first Christians who came to the island were hunters in search of wild life such as wild boars, deer, tamaraws, etc.

Later in the 1920’s, the Cebuanos, Ilongos, and other tribe from Luzon and Visayas came to the island to settle and farm. In 1948, the opening of the Hercules Lumber Company in Subanipa (the trading center of the island now renamed Solar) paved the way for the steady flow of people from the Visayas and Luzon. The establishment of the Lumber Company in the island and the influx of settlers reduced the verdant forest into an agricultural land.

  • Population of Olutanga (as of May 1, 2010 Census) = 28,717

The municipality of Olutanga, just like the other island municipalities of Zamboanga Sibugay is a jewel to behold. Like a shimmering pendant with fantastically shifting hues, seemingly dependent on the mood of Mother Earth, beautiful Olutanga ornaments the western tip of the province’s rich vast land.

Its beaches are fantastic. Pulo Laum beach is a major attraction in the island. The snake sanctuary taken care of by Manong Tero has been visited many times by adventurous tourists in the past.

Its vast sea is also rich with marine resources like fishes, lobster, oyster, the famous taclobo and many more. A written record of facts to support the origin of the Island of Olutanga does not exist but a popular version reflected in songs and zarzuelas of the old Muslim folks indicates that the family of Panglima Santikan and his beautiful wife Indah Dindah was the first to arrive in the island. However, the name Olutanga was attributed to an ethnic group, the Samals (Lutaos) who called themselves “Lutangan”. As the years went by, the tribe multiplied in numbers. Traces of their existence can still be found today along the strategic seashores of the island. (Source verbatim from: www.sibugayprovince.com/index.php/the-mayors/olutanga)

Barangay's power and authority: A must read for all barangay officials

Gavel.jpg

This is the "Barangay Code of the Philippines".

Barangay anim 4500.gif
A Barangay Clearance is NEEDED in order to get a Business License.
So why is the barangay name not in most business addresses?
Ask your Barangay Captain/Chairman to create a Resolution to make it mandatory to put the barangay name in all Business addresses.
Every Government Unit in the Philippines is within a Barangay. The municipal hall, city hall, the provincial capitol building, and even the Malacañang Palace where the president resides is within a Barangay.

The barangay has power and authority over its domain. The improvement of the barangay rests on the barangay officials. The barangay chairman, the barangay council and the local businessmen forge the prosperity of the barangay. Not the president of the Philippines, senate, nor congress. Not the governor of the province, not the mayor nor council of the municipality or city. Poor barangays stay poor because of weak and/or ignorant(uninformed) barangay leaders.

When roads or any infrastructure need to be built, improved or repaired, all the barangay officials have to do is make a resolution and present it to the city or municipality council. The resolution will force the city/municipal council or responsible government office to hear the legitimate demands. "The squeaky wheel gets the grease."

Each city or municipality is represented by the "barangay association or federation". The elected president of the Association of Barangay Council and the President of Kabataan (SK) association each have a seat in the City/Municipality council. Their powers are the same and equal to the elected city/municipality councilors. They are there to help lobby the demands of the barangays. They are not there just to collect a big salary and rub elbows with the regular elected city/municipality council, but to also represent the needs of the barangays.
The duties of the barangay officials are specifically written in Chapter III(Punong Barangay) and Chapter IV (The Sangguniang Barangay). Read it..

Practically anything that has to do with the barangay, the barangay officials have a say on it and most likely the authority over it. The majority of the barangay officials are not aware of their duties and power. They depend on the city council or mayor. The elected barangay officials are afraid of the mayor and city/municipality's "Sangguniang Panlungsod". They are in fear of being ousted or removed from office. The truth is, the "Sangguniang Panlungsod" does not have the power to remove or suspend any elected barangay officials from office. Only the COURT OF LAW can do this (judicial branch of the government). Elected public officials can't be suspended by the DILG or the office of the president unless an official complaint has been filed, there must be proof and there must be due process. Republic Act 7160 chapter 4, Section 60. Information is power. Be informed. Do not be intimidated by the president, senator, congressman, governor, mayor, vice-mayor, or councilors. Do your job.

The control of traffic is not up to the city council or chief of police. It is controlled by the barangay. If the barangay needs traffic enforcers, the barangay can make a resolution to demand it from the city or municipality council. When the electric coop or the water district do not maintain their lines, the barangay can directly demand for the maintenance from the utility companies. No need to wait for city council.

The citizens also has the power to make demands to the barangay officials. In case the officials get blinded. Simply file an official complaint with the barangay secretary naming the Punong barangay as the respondent representing the barangay.

If the power lines are sagging, don't go to the power company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the power company.
If the water lines are busted, don't wait for the water company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the water company.
If the potholes in the road are not fixed, don't wait for the The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the DPWH.
Are you beginning to get the point?

Cleaning the shorelines, drainage systems, streets, rivers, and parks within your barangay is YOUR responsibility. You are accountable for this. It is not the responsibility of the City/Municipality officials. The citizens and officials of the barangay are responsible. Stop blaming others.

  • BUDGET: As far as the preparation for the budget expenditures, it starts at the barangay level, then moves on to cities, municipalities, provinces and regions. The barangays need to exercise their authority. They need to put their yearly budget together for their administration and future projects. The majority of the barangays leave this job to the municipality and city. This is so wrong. Then when the budget doesn't come or is lacking, they complain.
  • The budget for the barangays does go to the City or Municipality, but simply for holding and later distribution. The city or municipality DOES NOT approve the budget. It was already approved by congress. The city or municipality simply "distributes" the approved budget.
  • The bureau of internal revenue is in cahoots to subdue the barangays, municipalities and provinces. They call the rightful shares to the taxes collected as "Internal Revenue Allotment Dependency". It is not a dependency. It is the lawful and rightful share of the LGU as specified in "TITLE III, SHARES OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNITS IN THE PROCEEDS OF NATIONAL TAXES, CHAPTER I, Allotment of Internal Revenue Taxes, Section 284."
  • "IMPERIAL MANILA IS A MYTH!", it does not exist anymore. The Philippine budget formulation system is not centralized. "Budgetary planning has been DECENTRALIZED since 1991". It is the responsibility of each LGU to submit their budgetary needs for review. Failure to submit is the problem.
  • DURING ELECTIONS: Where do City and Municipality politicians go to campaign? They seek the support of the Barangay officials. They plead to the barangay folks for the votes. Even the candidate for president. But after the election they ignore you. Do not ever forget the power of the barangay.

Ignorance keeps the pinoys thinking that Manila rules. Be informed, be educated and make your barangay prosper.

  • Absolutely NO need for FEDERALISM. It is a ploy to give the Bangsamoro an Islamic State where the religion of Islam is financed by the Philippine government. Bangsamoro will be a HOMELAND not for all Filipinos but for only the Muslim Filipinos. It violates the constitution's "separation of church and state". Religion is always good for the people but it should never be embraced or financed by government. Tax exemption is not tantamount to financing. Every non-profit organization is tax-exempt.

Natural Resources of Olutanga, Zamboanga Sibugay, 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.
