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.

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?


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 Tagbilaran City, Bohol, Philippines

The City forms an elongated strip varying in width from 500 meters at its narrowest to 2 kilometers at its widest following the configuration of the shoreline. Ridges with an average altitude of 30 meters running almost parallel to the shoreline forms a natural spine that seems to have served in the past as the settlement’s limit. Two peaks rise on both ends of the ridge, Elley Hill (100m) in the north and Banat-I Hills (145m) in the south. Except for these two protrusions, Tagbilaran is generally even with moderately rolling lands.

The terrain ranges from moderately rolling with prevailing slopes from 3 to 6 percent along the coastlines to generally flat and level land. Sunken areas or sinkholes are occasionally found in the interior.

History of Tagbilaran City, Bohol, Philippines

On July 1, 1966 by virtue of R.A. 4660, Tagbilaran became a chartered City. The political transition of Tagbilaran from a town/municipality of Bohol to its present status of a chartered city brought about a significant level of development in view of the increase in the share of the internal revenue allotment from the national government to the city.

With the passage of Republic Act No. 7160, otherwise known as the Local Government Code of 1991, radical changes was wrought out in the whole gamut of the city government structure. The present organizational hierarchy of the City Government includes 16 department level offices, 7 non-departmental level office and 7 non-organic offices.

article from the LGU of Tagbilaran Verbatim: http://www.tagbilaran.gov.ph/info/history/

On account of her peculiar geographic location, it has been bruited that the place was first named TINABILAN, which means “screened”, as she is shielded on the southwest by Panglao Island. But tradition has it that the word “Tagbilaran” was derived from the word TAGUBILAAN, a contraction from two local dialects TAGU (to hide) and BILAAN (a Muslim marauder tribe), which means a place hidden from the pillaging Muslims. How it finally evolved into her present name TAGBILARAN must have been the work of the Spanish conquistadores.

Tagbilaran started as a small settlement of natives who swore by the spirit of the Anito, a pagan god, in the vicinity of lower Mansasa. They were simple in their ways and peaceful, husky in build and generally tall. These are evidenced by bones and other artifacts excavated by self-styled archeologists along the shorelines, which they asserted to be the natives’ burial grounds. Early settlers have established trade relations with China, Malaysia and Indonesia.

During the later years of the Spanish era, a more advanced and civilized community was established at Sitio Ubos, the lower coastal portion at the back of the present Cathedral compound. All phases of activities — mercantile or otherwise — were confined to this little settlement by the sea. Most of their houses were made of local materials like bamboo, molave and nipa, except for a few which were made of limestones and bricks. As the population of the settlement grew, the upper portion of the coastal area was developed from with what is now the Cathedral compound spreading towards the east and northeast directions.

One of the most important historical events etched in the annals in the Philippine history and immortalized in canvass by the famous Filipino painter Juan Luna as one of his masterpieces, is the famous Blood Compact between Datu Sikatuna, a local native chieftain, and Captain Miguel Lopez de Legaspi, the intrepid Spanish explorer and colonizer. That historic event took place on an unpretentious coast of Bool, now a district of Tagbilaran, on March 16, 1565, a day after Miguel Lopez de Legaspi and his crew of conquistadores on four ships were drifted into the shores of Bool during the course of their trip to the province of Butuan from Camiguin Island because of strong southwest monsoon winds and low tide. On that day, March 16, 1565, Captain General Miguel Lopez de Legaspi, the conquistador from Zumaraga, Spain, with Fray Andres de Urdaneta and some of his crew set foot on land for an audience with the local chieftain Sikatuna. The two bands of different nationalities, race and creed met at a murky place, a few hundred meters away from the beach, and after a few pleasantries, the Basque seafarer and the native chieftain of Bool sealed off and strengthened their newborn friendship in a historic Blood Compact.

In that Blood Compact, Sikatuna and Legaspi each made a cut on the left arm and collected the dripping blood oozing therefrom in a single vessel and mixed with wine. From that single vessel, two others were filled giving one to Sikatuna and the other to Legaspi. The two leaders drank the mixture of their blood.

The Blood Compact sealed the ties of friendship between two people once different in religion, nationality, culture and civilization. The Tagbilaran native chieftain who swore by his ancestral Anito and Bathala, and the Spanish intrepid explorer and colonizer who sought New World with the sword and the cross, drank to the common cause – friendship. It was the first international treaty of friendship and comity between the Filipinos and Spaniards.

To perpetuate the memory and spirit of that first treaty of friendship and comity, the late President Elpidio Quirino established the “Order of Sikatuna”, a presidential award and decoration conferred upon visiting dignitaries. A historical marker now stands on the very spot where Sikatuna and Legaspi perpetrated that famous Blood Compact.

Another significant event that took place in Tagbilaran City was the battle of Ubujan where a guerilla unit under the command of Captain Francisco Salazar, nome-de-guerre of Vicente Cubello who engaged a Japanese troop against overwhelming odds. It was a display of Boholano bravery of raw and naked courage against a well-equipped and well trained Japanese soldiers. The battle, however, cost the life of Captain Salazar.

Tagbilaran was once part of the town of Baclayon.

In the year 1741, the Father Rector of the Jesuits in Bohol, Father Cesar Felipe Doria, writing from his “Residencia” in Loboc, Bohol, said that the population of Baclayon was already one thousand six hundred (1,600) tributes or taxpayers. The total population going to confession was more than eight thousand (8,000) inhabitants. In his opinion, this number was now impossible to administer by a single priest, especially in spiritual matters. Fr. Doria petitioned his superiors for the division of the town of Baclayon and create another town from it to be named “San Jose de Tagbilaran”.

In his petition to the Superior Administrator, Father Cesar Felipe Doria gave the following reasons to support his request for the creation of a new town.

First, it is observed that the town of Baclayon has come up to more than one thousand six hundred (1,600) tributes and more than eight thousand (8,000) souls to take confessions. This excessive number is hardly possible to administer by a single priest, not even with two priests during the feast days and usually during celebrations of Holy Mass. The greater part of the people are found outside the church because they could not be accommodated within the building even though this church is the most capacious in the whole Visayas.

Second, due to the extensive number of the people it could not easily be ascertained as to who got absent, that is why many people could chance not to hear mass on holy days without having been noticed by church authorities.

Third, the town has a very extended area. To be precise, when the natives leave to make their farms and other occupations for their sustenance, it is not possible for the priest or his officials to find out whether they do it for the dissidents (por los montes). Indios having trouble in their sowing, favor the said division.

Fourth, it is difficult to form the tax-census of the church, much more impossible to execute it. It is difficult to follow up the Indios who remain outside of the tax-census which results to their lack of spiritual living. Because of their liberty they lack the instructions of their soul, and as a result all those who stay outside of said tax-census do not pay tribute, which is notably prejudicial to Spain.

Fifth, the last reason is a matter of judgment. In a short while, the said town will reach at a number of two thousand (2,000) tributes, therefore becoming difficult to administer. It is clear that the upper class (principales) and natives of Baclayon are very desirous of the division.

It would be noted in the first and second reason given, that the priest was only interested in spiritual matters, the tax-census, and the tributes paid by the inhabitants. They wanted that everyone be included in the tax-census so that they can be accounted to attend church services.

The third reason cited is very revealing to the actual political situation in the area. Father Doria said “….when the natives leave to make their farms and other occupations, it is not possible to find out and know whether they do it for the dissidents”. The year was 1741, and the Dagohoy Revolt started in 1744 or three years later. Therefore, it clearly indicated that there were already “dissidents” or dissatisfied residents even before the start of the Dagohoy Revolution.

During the Dagohoy Revolution in Bohol, the sectoral leader in the Tagbilaran area was a man named Calixto Sotero who was of noble birth. Sotero was very well respected that the people paid their tribute or taxes to him rather than to the priests.

Even after Tagbilaran was established as a town and during the incumbencies of Gobernadorcillos (now called Mayors) Don Martin Flores and Don Manuel de la Peña, these two chose to pay tribute in the amount of one thousand pesos (PhP1,000) to Calixto Sotero rather than to the Spaniards.

It is discernible that the fear of the Spaniards of the control and influence of the dissidents impelled the Spaniards to establish the town of Tagbilaran. The statement that “…Indios having trouble in their sowing favor the said division” simply means that those who sided with the Spaniards were harassed by the dissidents and therefore desirous for the division of the town of Baclayon in order that they will be afforded more protection by the superior arms of the Spaniards.

According to Father Doria there were two good sites for the new town. They were Manzaza (Mansasa) and Tagbilaran, “…a place certainly very good and with a good port and where live the greater part of the Indios of Baclayon and a place where many Chinese junks and medium trading ships gather and stay for a time.”

This clearly show that in the 18th century Tagbilaran, Sitio Ubos of Poblacion existed already as a trading port of the Chinese. It may sound contrary to the previous statement of the first Spanish missionaries that the area was shallow and difficult to navigate by boat.

It must be borne in mind that Chinese junks were shallow draft boats and almost flat-bottomed and therefore can navigate in shallow waters. The Spanish ships of European design had deeper draft and therefore will have difficulty in navigating shallow waters.

To the Chinese, Tagbilaran area was an excellent harbor to berth.

A very revealing statement of Father Doria is the statement, “…where live the great part of the Indios of Baclayon…”. Most historical writers in Bohol are of the opinion that the present area of Poblacion, Baclayon, had the most population. The above statement of Father Doria is proof that the greater part of the population was in Mansasa – Tagbilaran area. However, this area was not in the firm grip of the Spaniards. No Spanish official was assigned in the area and therefore the people could not be tax-censused. In fact, the people had more respect for Calixto Sotero in Ilihan (now Elley Hill), Ubujan, than for the Spaniards.

Natural Resources of Tagbilaran City, Bohol, 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.

Increasing Local Rice Production: Zambales Farmers Rally Behind NFA’s Price Hike.
CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga – Zambales farmers are supporting the National Food Authority’s (NFA) decision to raise the buying prices for palay (unmilled rice). The NFA Council announced new prices: PHP23 for dry palay, increased from PHP19, and PHP19 for wet palay, up from PHP16. Francisco Pallarag, a rice farmer from Barangay Palanginan, Iba, appreciated the price change. He noted that farmers often faced low prices, especially during harvest times when there was a lack of drying facilities. With the NFA’s updated prices, which compete with private traders, farmers like him can now get better returns for their crops. Pallarag thanked President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. and the NFA. He committed to selling his next harvest to the agency, showing his support for the program.

Davao Region Sees Rise in September Inflation.
DAVAO CITY – The Philippine Statistics Authority in Region 11 (PSA-11) reported on Tuesday that Davao Region experienced an inflation rate of 5.4 percent in September, marking an increase from August’s 3.9 percent. However, this remains below the 9.6 percent recorded in September 2022. A primary factor behind the inflation uptick was the faster growth in food and non-alcoholic beverage prices, which rose to 8 percent from 6 percent the previous month, according to PSA-11. The report also highlighted quicker price increases in the sectors of housing, water, electricity, gas, and other fuels, which saw rates of -1.1 percent in September, an improvement from -2.4 percent in August. Similarly, restaurants and accommodation services jumped to 9.5 percent from 6.8 percent.
