A daughter of Virac garnered a share of second place in the civil engineering board examinations conducted by the Professional Regulations Commission (PRC) last month.

Raisa Lleue Molina Curativo, 22, got a rating of 98.95 percent, reportedly the highest ever received by a civil engineering graduate of the Bicol University-Legazpi where she finished her course early this year. She is one of the seven examinees who got the same rating. Two of her classmates also placed third with a rating of 97.90 percent, including BU cum laude Robert Christine Niebres.

The topnotcher is the eldest daughter of DPWH Engineer II Nestor M. Curativo and provincial nutrition officer Marites Molina-Curativo of Imperial Homes Subdivision, San Isidro Village, Virac.

A salutatorian at Taytay Elementary School, she is a graduate of the Catanduanes State Colleges Laboratory High School where she was fifth honorable mention.

Bambi, as she is called by friends and family, was a member of the BU team that ruled the Bicol regional eliminations of the Civil Engineering Pasiklaban Quiz this year, for which they earned free tuition during the CE review at Review Innovators in Manila.

Her sister, Riz Kylie, is also in her first year in civil engineering at BU Legazpi while the youngest in the Curativo brood, Rhexiell Justyne, is a nursery pupil at Virac Kiddie Smart Learning Center.

The new civil engineer will join the rest of the successful examinees for their oath-taking ceremony before the PRC Board of Civil Engineering this Dec. 20, 2008 at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) in Pasay City. Only 1,672 out of 4,831, or 34.61%, passed the Civil Engineer Licensure Examination given by the Board of Civil Engineering in the cities of Manila, Baguio, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Legazpi and Tacloban.

Virac Historical Development

Virac, the capital of the island province of Catanduanes, started its primitive annals in pre-Spanish times when tribal chieftain Lumibao, scion of Datu Dumaguil who came to the Philippines with the 13 Malay dauts, andd his wife Milbigan settled near Vidak spring and founded the first civilized settlement with a score of servant followers and their wives. Some say Virac is a derivation of the word “Vidac” while others claim it is a contraction of the Spanish version of the word burac, meaning flower.
The growth of Virac in terms of governance peaked in 1972. From the original 34 barangays in 1960, Virac was able to establish 29 new communities to upgrade the present composition of 63 barangays.

A Proposed Catanduanes Power Sector Development Plan

Strategic planning is an organization's way of defining its strategy, or direction, and making decisions on allocating its resources to pursue this strategy. In order to determine where it is going, the organization needs to know exactly where it stands, then determine where it wants to go and how it will get there. Section 2 of Republic Act (RA) No. 9136, otherwise known as the “Electric Power Industry Reform Act of 2001” or EPIRA, declared, among others, the policy of the State to ensure quality, reliability, security and affordability of the supply of electric power; Thus, one of the major mandate of FICELCO under DOE Circular No. 2003-12-11 , as an electric cooperative or a distribution utility is to supply adequate, affordable, quality and reliable electricity, which states among other that an abstract of the terms and conditions of power supply contracts with private power producers to augment the power supply in their franchise areas is assured that power interruption…
