CSC Kapariz Joins Coastal Clean Up; Leads Tree Planting Drive

The Kabataang Pangarap Ni Rizal (Kapariz), a central student organization of the Catanduanes State Colleges joined the coastal clean up drive in observance of the International Coastal Clean Up Day on September 18, along the shorelines of Concepcion, Salvacion and San Vicente, Virac and in Cabugao and Batalay in Bato.

The organization also spearheaded a tree planting drive along the stretch of national roads in Valencia, Bigaa, Sto. Domingo and Palta Small, Virac on September 11.

CSC NSTP students, the Biological Science Society officers and members, and MAT Biology and Physics students of the CSC Graduate School also took part in the activity.

According to Mr. Rey T. Soneja, adviser of Kapariz, their participation to the activity is in response to the invitation of the DENR Provincial Office. He said this is also in line with their association’s advocacy on environmental conservation and awareness.

Kapariz earlier led a group of more than 350 CSC students taking up Rizal Course in the simultaneous planting of Acacia (Rain Tree) seedlings along the national roads in the barangays of Valencia, Bigaa, and Sto. Domingo and Palta Small, Virac on September 11, 2010.

Volunteer students at CSC who are enrolled in several Social Science subjects such as Environmental Economics, History, Philippine Government and Constitution and General Psychology also participated in the activity.

The tree planting drive started at 7:30 A.M. through a walkathon from the CSC main campus to the designated areas along the almost five-kilometer stretch of the national road to barangay Palta Small.

The DENR-PENRO-CENRO provided 2,000 pieces of Acacia seedlings to the CSC for the activity.

The tree planting is among the lined-up projects of the organization this first semester to instill environmental conservation and awareness among its members.

Soneja said a culminating activity for this semester is also set on September 29, 2010. With the theme, "Rizalismo sa Ika-21 Dantaon," KAPARIZ members will present cultural shows and academic contest at the CSC Gymnasium.

All CSC students enrolled in Rizal Course are members of the Kapariz CSC Chapter.

Kabataang Pangarap ni Rizal is a recognized socio-civic organization which advocates the ideals and teachings of the national hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal. (CSC)

Man Who Never Dies

Col. Salvador Rodolfo, Sr. (born 7 February 1919) is a Filipino War Hero who liberated the Island Province of Catanduanes in the Philippines from the clutches of the Japanese Imperial Army during World War II. He was known in Catanduanes as “Phantom” or the “Man who Never Dies” based on the comic book hero created by Lee Falk in 1936. He organized the Catanduanes Liberation Forces (CLF), the guerilla unit that paved the way for the liberation of Catanduanes in 1945. The CLF fought the Japanese without any external help. They were fearless and fought so hard that the Japanese forces were virtually destroyed before even the American forces, the supposed liberators, arrived in Catanduanes in 1945. Personal life Rodolfo was born in 1919 in Bato, Catanduanes, Philippines. He is a descendant of Don Juan Rodolfo of Almeria, Spain who went to the Philippines in the 18th Century and married the daughter of Datu Bantog who was then one of the Tribal Chieftains in Catanduanes in order to put t…

The Bar is a rigorous test of eight subjects, each testing the graduates’ knowledge, reasoning and writing abilities. One of the examiners in the 2008 Bar Exam is Atty. Juanito Gianan Arcilla of Marcelo Alberto, Virac. Atty. Arcilla prepared the Bar questions on Political and International Law. The said exam consisted of the following subjects and its corresponding weighted average: Political and International Law (15%), Labor and Social Legislation (10%), Civil Law (15%), Taxation (15%), Mercantile Law (15%), Criminal Law (10%), Remedial Law (20%), and Legal Ethics and Practical Exercises (5%) for a total of 100%.

Virac Airport Expansion

US$3-M Set Aside For Virac Airport Expansion The national government has reportedly secured a US$3 million grant for the expansion of Virac airport as a key component of the tourism development program of the Camarines Sur provincial government. This was announced last week by Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) Assistant Secretary Cesar V. Sarmiento during an appearance at a gathering of the Philippine National Red Cross (PNRC) Catanduanes Chapter in Virac. Assec. Sarmiento revealed that the positive development was spurred by the effort of the administration of Camarines Sur Governor L-Ray Villafuerte to secure funds for the construction of an international airport at Caramoran town. Villafuerte’s proposal, however, has been met with stiff opposition from Caramoan residents, notably one of its native sons, Msgr. Manolo de los Santos, as the project would affect hectares of farmlands. The bishop of the Diocese of Virac reportedly wrote President Gloria Macapagal-…

Project 1.11.11

Lifted from Congressman Cesar V. Sarmiento’s privilege speech in the House of Representatives Dec. 13, 2010 is this urgent message to all those who love life here in this island). Half of Catanduanes used to be covered by lush, virgin forests untouched by man and inhabited only by wildlife. Sadly, that forest cover is now down to a mere 12 percent, even less, thanks to the continuing encroachment of human settlements and the relentless and illegal cutting of trees over the years. We cannot be proud of the verifiable fact that our island still has the highest percentage of forest cover in the Bicol region. We cannot, because we have not done enough to halt its decline. When typhoons Reming and Loleng thus ravaged Catanduanes, national television feasted on pictures of trees and cut logs floating by our coastlines after being carried down by floodwaters from our mountains. Just like what happened in Ormoc, Leyte when a flash flood claimed 8,000 lives in 1991 due to illegal logging an…
