Sorry Roldan, I dont have an idea on the estimated cost when that said electricity project will be pursued. I think Glen Alan Boyles has an idea because he's working in LGU. I think you ask the officials(if you knw one), to inquire this thing. I think the LGU had contact to BOHECO representative and with that they can ask that question of yours to them.

@ Bartdais and Glenn Alan, belated Happy Fiesta to Lapinig and also congratulations to our newly elected LGU Officials! We are behind you in continuing and exploring programs envisioned for our town's further growth, development and sustainability. By the way, regarding the power supply shortage in barangay Gaus,do you have any idea Guys(or any friends in BOHECO), how much is the cost(BALL PARK FIGURE) in installing and commissioning submersible power supply cable from the Town to Gaus? Estimated distance from both ends is about 6 kilometres. Is It safe to assume at Php 1million per kilometre cost? If yes, then the project should cost at around Php 6 Million.

To the one making this site: Is their a way to make this one friendly and easy to use? This is my second time putting comment on this site by I still need to go back to my email account and press that link to put me on this site again????. Also, is there a way that you can notify us if someone make a comment or post so that everybody (the ones commenting) will be aware of it? For example, Stephen Loveless asked for information about our town(where to go,what to ride, etc) and if he won't be notified when Alan Boyles answered, I guess he will not know it unless he will go this site again. To Glen Alan Boyles, I salute you sir for being so dedicated on serving our people. I know you had a good intent to help improving our municipality. Hope some other officials have the same good intent in serving the public as yours. You may never know how people from our barangay or from other barangays appreciate your works because we never had a chance to give you a recognition or never say it to you directly but we do admire you for being unselfish and willing to help others. Thanks so much for that.

To make the records straight, PD 2828 was signed by FM on October 27, 1977 and was officially announced and took effect on Nov. 4, 1977 to coincide with the bday of PCPG. Thank you Mr. Philip Maglana for the correction. To Stephen Loveless, the island town of President Carlos P. Garcia can be visit via various routes. a. Via Looc Mandaue direct to CPG everyday (8am)@ Looc Port(under the old Mandaue-Lapulapu bridge) travel time is 3.5 hours; b. Via Ubay port, Poblacion, Ubay, Bohol everyday trip starting 8am, 9am, 10am, 11am. travel time is approximately one hour. c. Via Tapal Wharf, Ubay, Bohol (24/7) travel time is 5 minutes.

I really appreciate our people still remembering the homeland of rich natural resources. We here in the Local Government, like you, are dreaming that one day we could rise up on this island flowing with milk and honey. That day our people will no longer wish to leave but in stead enjoy the serenity, friendship and freshness of our place. This place we call "ours" will soon be a place we can be proud of. Please join our hands in making this place productive and globally competitive using our very own resources. We have lots of potentials waiting to be tapped and steered to develop.

Hello, I'm from Lapinig. I always search for some pics and updates on this town and find nothing except this one. I like this post, You guys are awesome! You help people to learn the history of this town. If you guys had a pictures of any barangays(especially lapinig) that belong to this town, it will be greatly appreciated. I agree with Medi that a bridge between Popo and Union would be stepping stone to have good business in this town. @Engr. Roldan from Gaus, I think the 24 hour electricity would be possible despite that fact that gaus is little bit far from the main Town IF the officials on your barangay will try their best and of course with the help of the people in that barangay. As for example in Lapinig. Before we are just using the generator but now, we have 24 hour electricity. Pictures and updates on this town help people appreciate the place and might be their next destination for vacation and in this way, people in our town would benefit from it. Thanks!

please correct the date november 4, 1997 when a presidential decree renamed the place pitogo to pres. garcia, according to the write-up; i think it is not the right date; it was in november 4 1977 because our country was under martial law with pres. marcos who issued presidential decrees as our laws; in 1997, fidel v ramos was our president and we were not under martial law, no need for pd's. kumusta sa tanang paisano!!!!

Thank you Philip. I've corrected it--Rodelyn

Hi...I'm from the island barangay of Gaus and presently working in Singapore on building and sewerage projects. 30 years since I left the island to pursue my secondary and tertiary education and have been to companies a for living; I appreciated significant improvements in Barangay Electrification and the creation of High School. Thank you for the effort of our local government...keep it up! I am wishing that someday soon we will have sufficient power supply to augment computer literacy in both elementary and high school students in our barangay. As proper sanitation plays an important role in our day-to-day life, I am hoping that we could improve it particularly on human waste disposal. Thank you.

This is our beloved homeland. Please help me campaign for a bridge connecting Popoo and Union. This will boost economy and tourism and include this little paradise in Bohol's tourist destination.
