Vallejo officials brief Baguio counterparts on governance

VALLEJO, California – Officials of this city opened their working week last Monday with a briefing on governance, economic and educational systems for their visiting counterparts from Baguio to mark the 18th year of the establishment of sisterhood ties between the two localities.

After the exchange of pleasantries at city hall, host mayor Osby Davis yielded the proceedings to city manager Phil Batchelor, in keeping with the former's welcome message for the sister cities to "get the most out of this relationship".

The sisterhood ties were formalized in May, 1993, on the initiative of the Baguio Californians, the association of expatriates from Baguio and the Cordillera now residing in this, The Golden State.

Drained OFW seeks Samaritans

After a two-year work contract in Saudi Arabia that supported his mother and younger brother, Martin Jude Barros came home last November to settle down and raise a family.

So last April 26, he married sweetheart Abby Jane Tambiac. Less than a month later, he fell ill and was confined at the SLU Hospital of the Sacred Heart.

The city is currently observing the "Family Month" (whole month of September) and the "Character Week" (starting September 21) which was launched during the City Hall Flag Ceremony Monday.

Waste segregation in city gaining headway

BAGUIO CITY – The reinforced waste segregation campaign began to gain headway here even as Mayor Mauricio Domogan urged residents to exert more effort to comply with the scheme which he said, if perfected, will eventually solve the city's garbage problem.

"We are looking forward to perfecting the segregation system because if we can, we will be able to address both our nonbiodegradable wastes which are being processed in our ERS (Environmental Recycling System) and the biodegradables which will be collected by the Pro Tech (Machinery Corporation)," the mayor said.

City environment and parks management office head Cordelia Lacsamana said the level of compliance to the segregation requirement has considerably increased to 50 percent of the 128 barangays and this is expected to further improve as the city intensifies the implementation of the no-segregation-no-collection policy.
