The Municipal Agriculture Office (MAO), in coordination with the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Regional Office 02 (BFAR-RO 2), is currently conducting the Training on Seaweeds Processing and Fish Smoking at the FITS Center, Centro, Lal-lo, Cagayan which will last until tomorrow, August 29, 2014.
Said training is participated by the Rural Improvement Club (RIC) led by their ever active and supportive Federation President, Hon. Maria Olivia B. Pascual, the Board Member of the 1st Congressional District of the Province of Cagayan.
According to BM Olive, the idea of having the training came up from BFAR-RO 2 Regional Director Jovy Jayson’s visit during the birthday celebration of the former
The League of Municipalities of the Philippines (LMP) National Directorate, wherein Mayor Florante C. Pascual is a member of, is currently holding a meeting at Traders Hotel, Manila by virtue of Memorandum No. 31, Series of 2014 issued by LMP Secretary General Mayor Abraham “Jess” T. Burahan.
The issues being tackled include the Post Luzon Island Cluster Conference, Visayas Islands Cluster Conference, Mindanao Cluster Conference, Mayors’ Trust Fund, and United Cities and Local Governments General Assembly in Taiwan, to name a few.
Yesterday at the same venue, the LMP National Executive Committee conducted a meeting where they discussed LMP concerns with national agencies and their 2nd Quarter Financial Report, among others.
The Local Government Unit of Lal-lo, in partnership with Cagayan State University (CSU) Lal-lo Campus, is set to launch yet another rearkable project that would provide the people with the appropriate weapon to land themselves better chances in securing a job especially in the government service.
As part of its Human Resource Development and Management program, review classes for the Civil Service (Professional and Sub-professional) Examination will be conducted every Thursday at 3:30 to 5:00 PM and Saturday at 8:00 to 11:30 AM and 1:00 to 4:30 PM which will commence on August 28, 2014.
The Local Government Unit of Lal-lo extended financial assistance to two faculty members of the Cagayan State University in their attendance to an international research conference.
Mrs. Gemma R. Pascual and Mr. Ferdinand Bulusan of CSU Lal-lo will attend the 12th International Asia Teaching English as a Foreign language Conference and the 23rd Malaysia English Language Teachers Association International Conference. It will be held in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia from August 28 – 30, 2014.
The international conference aims to share, discuss, and deliberate on the issue of ensuring sustainable quality in English language education that takes cognizance the changing nature of the English language, its transforming purpose, its use in changing contexts and its role in reframing transnational communication.
Their research, “Breadth and Depth of Productive Vocabulary of English as a Second Language Learners,” was accepted for paper presentation. It explicated the level of vocabulary students have developed from their English language exposure.
Moreover, the two faculty members will have a poster presentation of another study, “Swardspeak in the Philippine Context: A Morphological Analysis.” It describes how gay individuals uniquely formulate vocabulary and organize their ideas in speaking.
“We are very appreciative of the financial help LGU Lal-lo has extended for our travel. Its concern for faculty welfare and development in the municipality is once more demonstrated,” the two grateful CSU faculty remarked.
Mr. Bulusan is a regular fixture in LGU events as he is asked to emcee programs. He writes articles for the official LGU publication and is a broadcast volunteer at the town’s community radio, DWRL 95.1 FM.

The LGU Grounds was inundated with swarms of people on August 2, 2014 to witness the highly-anticipated annual Street Dancing Competition. With the increased financial assistance from the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Lal-lo– from Php 50,000.00 last year to Php 100,000.00 this year – the six (6) contingents certainly went all-out in their respective performances, all ferociously hungry to take home this year’s crown.
The air was filled with so much tension while the contingents start to pile up at their designated assembly area at the ROC Shell Station at six o’clock in the morning. After weeks of endless practice, pales of sweat and tears, and probably some broken limbs here and there (I hope not), the moment to show off had finally arrived. Everyone, not only the contingents but their supporters and other spectators as well, were all but excited and anxious at the same time.
