Bohol Residents Sick and Tired of Tagbilaran Bad Roads

As seen on the Bohol Chronicle - As City Hall pays no attention to their pleas, residents in Barangay Taloto showed their own initiative in the spirit of volunteerism by patching-up some of the Philippines' worst roads by themselves.

Since Monday, barangay residents has been going out of their way demonstrating a united front despite being ignored by the city officialdom for a year now, on their hopes that bad roads in their village be repaired.

"It's been one year since we first requested the city mayor to prioritize city roads traversing our barangay as we were about to celebrate our annual feast, every July 15th. Although we are saddened that instead of helping us, the mayor continues to mock our pleas, we are making our own initiative to patch-up the potholes," said Barangay Captain Faro Cabalit of Taloto.

Cabalit led barangay folks – from professionals, office workers, the youth and even bystanders – to help by working on portions of roads that needed repair.

While it has been a "year-round headache" for motorists, the unpaved stretches of Taloto-Ubujan Road, Booy-Taloto-Manga Road and Baguio Drive, becomes extremely accident prone notably during rainy days.

According to Cabalit, Taloto residents have taken the cudgels in making the city and barangay roads passable and at least presentable to their guests during the fiesta season.

Several donations of truckloads of limestone aggregates (anapog) were made by City Councilor John Geesnell Yap which barangay volunteers use to fill up the numerous potholes, Cabalit added.

Using his own pick-up type multicab, the barangay captain led the road works with volunteers armed with thumpers and shovels.

Principal and secondary roads in several city barangays are awaiting repairs as City Hall seems to disregard grievances aired by residents. Bad road conditions are more apparent in barangays whose village leaders are political opponents of the city mayor.

China Steals Another Philippine Island

By Michaela Del Callar 

The Philippines has protested China's establishment of a new city that covers the South China Sea nearly in its entirety, including territories under Manila's sovereign jurisdiction. 

Philippine foreign officials summoned Chinese Ambassador Ma Keqing Wednesday and handed her Manila's diplomatic protest. 

The note verbale said "the establishment of Sansha city as the extent of the jurisdiction of the city violates Philippine territorial sovereignty over the Kalayaan Island Group and Bajo de Masinloc and infringes on Philippine sovereign rights over the waters and continental shelf of the West Philippine Sea." 

This is the latest in the territorial rift between Manila and Beijing, preceded by a two-month standoff over the Scarborough Shoal, known locally as Bajo de Masinloc. 

The standoff ended when President Benigno S. Aquino III pulled out two Philippine government ships two weeks ago, citing bad weather. 

China is claiming the shoal, 124 nautical miles off the northwestern Philippine town of Masinloc in Zambales. 

The shoal is 472 nautical miles from China's nearest landmass in Hainan province. 

The Philippines and China have also disputed ownership of some parts of the resource-rich South China Sea that includes the eight Philippine-claimed territories it calls Kalayaan Group of Islands. 

In its note verbale, Manila said the declaration of the establishment of Sansha City "contradicts the spirit of the conduct of parties in the South China Sea." 

This has reference to a non-binding code of conduct urging all claimants to exercise restraint and stop new occupation in the area. 

"The Philippines reiterates in that note verbale that the KIG and Bajo de Masinloc and the waters and continental shelf around them form an integral part of the Philippine territory and maritime jurisdiction," Hernandez said. 

China virtually claims the whole of South China Sea and West Philippine Sea to Manila, and the cluster of rocky outcrops and atolls further south called the Spratlys. 

Others that have competing territorial claims over the vast sea are Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan. 

KIG and the Scarborough are well within Manila's 200-nautical mile exclusive economic zone as outlined by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).
