Magdayao</p><p>Mayor Jun Bito-onon as he delivers his welcome address during the Opening of the 35th Founding Anniversary of the Municipality</p><p>Salute to Tomas Cloma and former President Ferdinand E. Marcos! For without Clomas exploration and effective oc-cupation in 1947 and Marcos issuance of PD 1596 on June 11, 1978, Ka-layaan may not be part of the Philip-pine territory. The successful conduct of various activities had opened the avenue of friendship, camaraderie, enjoyment and assessment of what been accomplished by todays admin-istration. The theme Kalayaan @ 35: matuwid na pamahalaan, matatag na bayan, masiglang pamayanan had showcase what is the present status of Kalayaan in terms of how it operates as an administrative unit, and how could the community be described.</p><p>1. With the conduct of turn-over ceremonies of the newly-rehabi-lated Municipal Hall and Munic-ipal Disaster Operation Center, the newly-constructed Municipal Engineering/warehouse building, newly-completed installation of solar street lights has proved that government funds are used to bring infrastructure development in Pag-asa that would improve ser-vice delivery of the government;</p><p>2. Dialogue with the residents of Pag-asa with the Municipal may-or together with the department heads resolved the issues and concern about utilities, basic ser-vices , housing, and other issues regarding labor and employment;</p><p>3. The 1st ever commencement ex-</p><p>ercises of Pag-asa Elementary School was a historical landmark. It will prove to the world the ex-ercise o f sovereignty over the Philippine territory. Four kinder-garten were confirmed graduates.</p><p>4. The groundbreaking ceremo-ny for the construction of el-ementary school building, a project donation of Ten-moves Foundation acquired through WESCOM Commander LTGen Juancho M Sabban had assured the schoolchildren that they will have their home to learn and to becoming successful graduates of the first ever ele-mentary school in the Spratlys;</p><p>5. The conduct of sports activities such as basketball, billiard, ta-ble tennis, volleyball brought more excitement to the resi-dents, employees and military personnel as they participate and partake the prizes at stake;</p><p>6. GAD-initiated activities such as Gupit and manicure training sem-inar, orientation on basic herbal medicines, and organization of womens association had im-proved the awareness of the wom-en residents about the services of the government by making them (See page 2 / Kalayaan.)</p><p>Volume 1 Issue No. 2013-01 June 2013</p></li><li><p>Kalayaan... from page 1</p><p>partners of development;7. The CapDev Workshop conduct-</p><p>ed to island-based COS revealed attitude problems among them towards work and responsibil-ities, lacking office tools, ma-terials, equipment and system operation. Water, power, hauling equipment and communication system are among the major problems that are currently ex-perienced. During the objective tree analysis, it was found out that almost all of the priorities or major problems identified have been addressed already under the 2013 annual investment plan;</p><p>8. Orientation on Batas Pambansa or the Omnibus Election Code was very timely. Participants were able to understand the prohib-ited acts during election period and the corresponding penalties;</p><p>9. Public hearing on the Revised revenue code and the Citizens charter was used as a tool to get the publics view on the proposed code and charter;</p><p>10. To equip the residents with knowledge and consciousness on disaster preparedness, basic life support and first aid and water safety orientation were conduct-ed. The MDRRM office also fa-cilitated the conduct of the first triathlon challenge in the island;</p><p>11. Team building activities were conducted that made the anniver-sary more fun and enjoyable. The first ever amazing race challenged group efforts to participants to finish the race made of both mind and physical challenges. Cheer-dance competition likewise tested the capability of the group to pre-pare coordinated works and dance steps, and lastly, individuals and groups were given opportunity to </p><p>showcase their talents with priz-es at stake during the Kalayaan Got Talent Season 2 Edition.;</p><p>12. Four couples officially received the blessing of matrimony. The first Kasalang Bayan solem-nized by the Municipal Mayor;</p><p>13. The success of peaceful elec-tion is also among the reasons to celebrate the 35th foundation year of the Municipality. People were gathered at night of May 14, 2013.

Naitayo ang </p><p>nasabing gusali sa pamamagitan ng Municipal Engineering Office na pinamumunuan ni Engr. Arnel V. Esller. Ayon kay Engr. Esller, kundi dahil sa konstruksyon ay matagal na sanang nakumpleto ang nasabing proyekto. Gayunpaman, maituturing na malaking accom-plishment ito para sa opisina ng engineering dahil ito ang magsis-ilbing kanlungan ng mga kagami-tang (See page 5 / Engineering...)</p><p>Ang Alamat ng Saging</p><p>by: Dianne Melanie W.

Lloyd Calvo, Pink Team ni Japoy Esller, Blue Team ni A1C Jassany Manongcarang, Green Team ni LT Edward Cede-no. Sa gitna ng napakalak-as na buhos ng ulan ay sinimulan ang kumpetisyon sa pamamagitan ng chant ng magkakatunggaling grupo. Sa pamamagitan ng ma-susing pagsunod sa mga panuto at matagumpay na pagsasagawa nito ay naghihintay ang kasunod na pagsubok upang matagumpay na matapos ang walong mga challeng-es na sumusukat sa pisikal at men-tal na galing at diskarte. Ang mga masayang panoorin ay ang paghu-li ng kambing habang nakatali sa bawat isa, pagpapatulay ng bola sa kawayan, pagpapalutang ng flaglet sa napakalaking drum, pag-akyat sa puno, at pagkolekta ng mga flaglets na nakakalat sa kahabaan ng airstrip at pinakahuli ay ang pagsindi ng bonfire bilang hudyat ng pagtatapos ng challenges. Dahil ito ay race to win, ang lavender team ni Sgt. Calvo ay nahirang na kauna-unahang Amazing Race grand prize winner na tumanggap ng papremyo na nagkakahalaga ng apat na libo. Nakuha naman ng Blue Team ang ikalawang pwesto na may premyong nag-</p><p>kakahalaga ng dalawang libo samantalang nakakuha naman ng conso-lation prizes na nagkakahalaga ng isang libo ang pink at green teams.</p><p> Inaasahang mas magiging kaabang-abang ang susunood na amazing race sa susunod na taon.</p><p>SPRATLYS STRONG AND BRAVE WOMEN ASSOCIATION</p><p>by: Myla Panagniban</p><p> 31 Women in attendance as the MPDO facilitated the orientation seminar and workshop.

Followed by the presentation of the Basic Standards, Legal Basis and Institutional Standards from the Local Government Code re-or-ganizing a women sector, done by </p><p>MPDC, Ms. Dina Balofios. After the orientation, MPDO conduct-ed workshop on formulating the vision, mission and goal of the wom-ens association.

The women responded positively and were honest on their preferences. Thoughts and ideas were also consolidated in formulating the vision of the association. The activity gave way to the promotion of camaraderie among themeselves, especially the island-based women. They elect-ed seven (7) board of trustees that will lead the organization and selected among them the Pres-ident, Vice President, Secretary and Officer. </p><p>Kauna-unahang Ironman Challenge inilunsadby: Cha T. Magdayao</p><p>Participants and Marshalls posed during the 1st Ironman Challenge</p><p> Race to finish ang hamon ng ironman competition na inilunsad ng opisina ng Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction Management sa pamumuno ni Admin Jorge Misajon at sa pamamagitan ng Technical Staff for Administration and Training na si Mr. Joey Rabanal. Sinubok ang tibay at kakayahan sa paglangoy sa dagat na may layong isang milya, magbisekleta sa habang 2.7 kilometro at tumakbo sa kahabaan ng 1.3 kilometrong paliparan sa ilalim ng napakatinding sikat ng araw.</p><p> Sa qualifying round ay sinalihan ito ng pitong manlalaro na binubuo ng tatlong sundalo, isang nurse, isang empleyado, at isang anak ng empleyado, ngunit lima lamang ang napiling tumuloy sa final round ng kumpetisyon. Naging kaabang-abang ang final round dahil sa tatlong kababaihan na nagkasundong tanggapin ang hamon na kung kaya ng kalalakihan </p><p>ay kaya din naman ng mga kababaihan. Sa hiwalay na kumpetisyon ay pinatunayan ni MJ Batiancila na kanya ang titulong ironlady ng Kalayaan sa taong 2013. </p><p>Pumangalawa si Louella Ocampo. Kundi lamang napulikat ang isa pa sa kalahok na si Ms Donna Palay ay natapos din sana nya ang kumpetisyon at makuha ang ikatlong pwesto.</p><p> Dahil sa liksi at bilis ni Sgt. Mark Orello ay naiwan nya ang lahat nyang katunggali at natapos ang challenge sa loob lamang ng tatlumpong minute at tatlumpot dalawang segundo. Pinangalawahan sya ni Bors Asiado at pangatlo naman si Darwin Hermoso. Dahil si Lt. Saquiban at Butchoy Elim ay nagkasundong ereserba sa kanila ang ika-apat at ika-limang pwesto sa kumpetisyon ay walang dudang nakamit nga nila ito. Sa huling round na takbo sa kahabaan ng paliparan ay naiwan ni IC Saquiban si (See page 9 / Ironman...)</p><p>The Spratlys Strong and Brave Wom-en Association of the Municpality of Ka-layaan, Palawan with Mayor Jun Bito-onon</p><p>Ang Lavender Team, matapos magwagi sa kauna-unahang Amazing Race the Kalayaan Edition kaugnay ng 35th Founding Anniversary ng Munisipyo.
