News: 106 Houses Swept Away by Landslides

Some 106 houses were totally destroyed in four provinces in Caraga Region after almost a week of continuous rains that caused swelling of rivers and loosening of the soil in mountainous areas all over the region.

A report from the Regional Disaster Coordinating Council (RDCC) at 9 a.m. today said the 106 houses were totally damaged while another 531 were partially destroyed in the municipalities of Cagdianao, Libjo, San Jose and Tubajon in Dinagat Islands province, Carmen, Jabonga, Nasipit, in the province of Agusan del Norte; Esperanza, Trento, Veruela, in Agusan del Sur; and Alegria and Surigao City, in Surigao del Norte.

What a sad news. Anybody could tell us why all cellphones are unreachable? I just hope that everything will be alright and the network connection will be re-installed as soon as possible.

Hope to hear from you guys...

Agree ko nimo dhenz pero mga tawo sa Dinagat buta ug bungol man sad lagi. Dili man unta magkaland slide kung dili pa upaw ang isla

Kung familiar mo sa "basayon", kanang bukid ibabaw sa Camang and the neighboring hills above Libjo are really looking bald and the posibility of a future catastrophe might happen anytime. Our town is prone to a disastrous landslide and i just hope that it will not happen to us.

I hope that sooner or later, somebody from LGU must take action by having a program for a massive tree planting up in the mountains of Libjo. Our students in high school can participate in this program like what we did in Beverly Hills (Cebu city's nearby mountain) during my college days. One student can plant a tree or a partnership of two and this kind of activities will really help to shape the future of our siblings and protect us from harm.

I just hope that people with full authorities in our town must think about this with a sincere actions for the benefit of all.

nahimo man na nga isyo panahon sa milabay nga mga eleksyon (llamera vs villapando) sa ato lungson. ang rason ni villapando sauna nga mineral reserve man kuno ang isla mao nga okey ra mawaya ang mga tanom kay minahon ra man gihapon. prangka kaayo nga rason BISAN SAYOP. ang pikas pod way daghan langas pero ila pamilya maoy usa sa mga aktibo nga illegal loggers sa ato. remember MV ROSBERT?
DILI MAN POD LAGI MALEKSYON UG DILI MAKA-EXPERIENCE.

dhenz that's an excellent idea. i've been thinking about it for many, many years after attending the first convention on environment protection and implementation of the clean air act. but i have not been doing anything about it. as a libjoanon i think i'm also guilty on that. i know we have lots of professionals in our town who have expertise on this to what type of plants to plant not affecting the water suppy (kay naa may mosuyop noon ug daghan tubig unya ang deposito sa tubig mainom maapektuhan), and what are our laws knowing that those properties above the poblacion were owned by private individuals.
my suggestion guys is to start sending letters of suggestions to our councilors being the legislators of our town. i think thats the first thing to do. lets see if they will act. and if they don't, lets choose qualified people to replace them next election. i guess most of them are there only because of fame and money. they should know what to do. we can not put all the blame to the mayor. the council makes ordinances.
we went to same university dhenz. i planted a tree also in busay during my college days. and another one when i was already working.

mahimo na dhenz. kahinumdom ka sa kapiloyloy sauna? boy ug cub scouts nananom sa kilid sa mga karsada. even other organizations can help. we need good leaders.
mga scoutmasters namo sauna sila ni:
sir boy malbacias, sir junior sayson, sir poldo cabeza, sir kawit conales, sir boyhod dellera, sir nambatac.
mga cub scout leaders sila ni maam milag angob, maam daling, maam mary cabajes. kalimot na ko sa uban.
pero mga maestro ug maestra.
ang ato mga pulis puwede man pod maoy maglider ana. taga-munisipyo nga mga empleado ug mga opisyal sa duha ka barangay. ug mohangyo ang mga lider sa mga simbahan, daghan pod mo volunteer.

Unsay qualified person, ingna hinoon kanang kwartahan ang pilion kay halos tanan sa libjo nawong kwarta. ibaligya ang boto.mao nga ang mga konsehal pwera sa maayo way laing mahimo kundi mangayo ug kwarta sa national government halos sa tanan nga resolusyon nga botohan every session.

hawaiian blend ug naa man gani giingon nga "point of no return" grabe na kalajo ang lapas nato. dili na mabalik nga mga ligdong nga mga tawo modaug ug eleksyon kung way kwarta.
naay daghan nga mga produkto ang lungsod nga nahuman ug mga kurso, successful sa ila mga field of practice pero ug muoli sa ato aron mokandidato? dili gihapon modaug ug way kwarta.
ako example mga retirees sa ato. taas ug mga experience nga mga administrador or head sa opisina nga ila na-trabahoan: junior lomarda, boyhood dellera, boy malbacias, pedring malbacias, kawit conales, boy jacquez. lajo pa sa retirement pero capable si poldo cabeza. kana sila tanan pildihon ra na ug mga tawo nga dili gani kamao manulti, way experience as leader or head of office. tungod ra kwarta wa na silay chance.

Hawaiian blend, mao na ni imong chance, pero maajo unta kung dili na ka Amerkano.

these people are/were good administrators, good planners and some are leaders. sakto ka! walay lalis! but first, we better ask them if they are willing to take the risks and responsibilities of being a political leader. it doesnt end after the election, its just the beginning. some of the people you have mentioned have money. pero nganong dili mo kandidato? because they know that being a politician is not a "walk in the park."

i heard edward tiu, pepe ebale and the late nong adring omandam and many others ran for office before. wala ba sila'y kwarta?

to rex, dugay nako nga Amerkano dong, high school ka pa tingali. panahon pa ni mr alvarez.. as i said before, you dont have to be a politician to help our town.

ang problema lang kay daghan ang gusto sa politika pero ang politika way gusto nila.

hinaut pa unta nga sa umaabot nga piniliay, tarungon na ug pili sa mga libjoanon aron dili mag sige ug binasulay! salamat!

HAPPY VALENTINES sa tanang gwapa sa libjo!

Hawaiian Bend, nangutana man kaw kung kinsay angajan na motabang sa Libjo unja ang iban naglaom nga tarong kaw tawo ajaw sila balibari

Wa man ko mangutana kung dugay ka na diha or bag o pa. Akong gi review ang imong postings sa una (thanks to 5:28) nahinumdom ko nga hapit ka na mo retire and you're telling that you're "going home". Maajo unta nga dili ka na Amerkano pag uli nimo para makita sa mga tawo nga tinuoray imong pagtabang.

I agree with you nga dili kinahanglan mahimong politiko para makatabang kay dili man na personal nga kwarta sa mga politiko nga gipatukod ug eskwelahan, health centres, hospitals ug uban pa. Ang uban nahimong opisyalis way mahimo kay mga tawo nagtoo nga kwartahan ang mga opisyal mao nga daghan moduol magpatabang, salary wise gagmay ra na sila ug sweldo pero mapugos ug pangutang kay naa may mangajo ug tabang.

Ang akong challenge nimo nga naa may mga tawo gusto mag nominate nimo don't fail them (thanks 6:57AM) & bacause you've earned that much in the US dalha na tanan sa Pilipinas aron madugangan ang dollar reserves.

Ayaw ibato nako ug balik ang challenge kay ingnon ta ka I don't do it if I were you because in my views its NOT WORTH TO DO IT.

Hawaiian blend kung silently nganong gi post man nimo?? Tibuok kalibutan nakahibawo na dili na silently...

Honestly dili ko hilig ug kape... kung gusto nimo ibutang imong tinuod nga identity kay basin diay daghan mobotar nimo.

i dont like politics dong, ilabi na ang politics sa isla.. as i said before, its not for me. well, some of my relatives are public servants in loreto for so so long now. maybe its for them.. but i know deep within, that you like it. why dont you try, so you may know if the libjoanons or even your relatives would choose you.

i never published what i did for libjo or to other towns. im just happy to help in my own little way..kung unsa nga tabang, wala na kay labut.
its up to you if you will help or not, wala koy labut.

lastly, you dont have to know me or even like me.

Hawaiian blend,

Sa ako nang giingon sa unahan ayaw ibalik nako ang challenge kay para nako its not worth it. I'm happy of what I have. Simple question... what is the difference between 22 & 20? siguro moingon ka nga 2 in that you're correct. Pero kung naay mag offer nimo ug USD 22T per month unya tumbasan ug P20T per month? asa man ka? simple math.

WOW! maayo gyud ka sa math dong.beliba gyud nako nimo. wala ko kaapas ato.
well, USD 22T is fine with me.its about 18 days work without overtime here in the states. di na lamang i-apil ang 'ginagmay' nga negosyo sa pinas.
so, di man diay ka sa politika kay gamay ra ug sweldo. ako, dili pud kay wala sa linya. pangita nalang ug lain dong.
