Baliwag-Bustos Bridge, isasara na sa Abril 30.

Baliwag, Bulacan – Pormal na nag abiso ang Halrey Construction sa Tanggapan ng Punongbayan ng Bayan ng Baliwag ang nakatakdang pagsasara ng Gen. Alejo Santos Bridge o mas kilala sa Baliwag-Bustos Bridge sa Abril 30, 2018. May inilaang probisyong daanan na magiging alternatibong daan ng mga babagtas ng mga bayan ng Baliwag at Bustos papunta sa norte. Higit nga na mas apektado ang mga Bustosenyo na sa Baliwag nag-aaral at nagkokomersyo.

Wala pang tinukoy na petsa kung kailan matatapos ang bagong tulay.

Samantala, muling pinaalala ni Mayor Ferdie V. Estrella ang kanyang mungkahi na magkaroon pa ng isang tulay sa gawi ng Tarcan o Makinabang upang madecongest ang Gen. Alejo Santos Bridge at upang stratehiyang makatugon ito sa pananaw ng Baliwag bilang Midway Business Destination. Ang Baliwag ay may layong 50km mula sa Manila at Clark.

Samantala, ilang grupo naman ang nanawagan na huwag sanang gibain ang nasabing tulay na ginawa sa panahon ni Pangulong Marcos sa halip ay patibayin na lamang ito upang maisalba ang mga ganitong pamanang kultura at kasaysayan ng bayan.

Ang tulay na ito ay ipinangalan kay Gen. Alejo Santos noong Setyembre 25, 1989 sa bisa ng Republic Act no. 6762. Ang tulay na ito na ginawa noong 1968 ay sinasabing isa sa pinakamatanda sa lalawigan ng Bulacan.

Emmanuel Romano: Ipinagmamalaki ng mga Baliwagenyo!

Abril 16, 2018 – Ginawaran ni Mayor Ferdie ng Sertipiko ng Pagpapahalaga si Emmanuel Romano, isang magbabasura mula sa Baliwag Solid Waste Management Office para sa kanyang ipinamalas na katapatan at Serbisyong may Malasakit ng kanyang buong pusong isauli ang perang nagkakahalaga ng humigit kumulang 400,000 piso mula sa basurahan.

30711007_741308196258049_956597392390658789_nBuong pusong isinauli ni Emmanuel ang perang kanyang napulot mula sa tumpok ng basura habang sya ay nangongolekta ng mga basura umaga ng Sabado De Gloria – Marso 31, 2018.  Sa kabila ng kahirapan sa buhay ay mas pinili ni Emmanuel na gawin ang nararapat ng kanyang bolontaryong isauli ang pera sa tunay na may ari nito.

a

Hindi itinanggi ni Emmanuel na natukso din sya noong una sa perang kanyang napulot sa basura na sa kabuuan ay nagkakahalagang 427,798 piso. Sa kwento nya’s tunay nga daw na malaking tulong sana sa kanilang pamumuhay ang napulot na pera lalo pa at kailangan ng ipagawa ang bahay na kanilang tinitirahan at may sakit ang kanyang bunsong anak. Ngunit mas nanaig sa kanya ang tawag ng konsensya at Pusong Baliwagenyo kaya mas pinili nyang gawin ang nararapat – ang i-surrender sa kinauukulan ang kanyang napulot.

Nasuklian naman ang katapatang ito ni Emmanuel dahil sya ay pinagkalooban ng 20,000 piso bilang pabuya ng may ari ng pera at pinangakuan din na ipapagamot ang kanyang anak. Ang perang natanggap ay ginamit ni emmaneul upang ipagawa ang kanilang bahay. Sa kabilang banda ay bumuhos naman ang suporta at tulong ng Pamahalaang Bayan ng Baliwag at iba pang Baliwagenyo para kay Emmanuel bilang pagkilala sa kanyang katapatan sa serbisyo.

Agad na nag-viral sa social media ang ginawang kabutihang loob na ito ni Emmanuel kaya’t daglian itong naarating sa Kapuso Mo Jessica Sojo – isang regular na programa sa GMA7. Ipinalabas sa KMJS ang kwentong ito ni Emmanuel na ngayon ay halos umaabot na sa 53,000 shares at 4.6M views makalipas ang halos isang lingo lamang. Nag-trending ang kwentong ito ni Emmanuel kung saan ay kanyang naipamalas na tunay ngang “God is with Us” at ang bawat mabubuting gawa ay susuklian ng Panginoon ng siksik, liglig at umaapaw na biyaya.

Isang sorpresa ang natanggap ni Emmanuel ng pormal na inanunsyo ni Mayor Ferdie sa kanyang lingguhang pagsasalita sa Flag Ceremony ng Pamahalaang Bayan ng Baliwag na kanya ng gagawing permanente sa trabaho si Emmanuel. Ito ay di lamang bilang pagkilala sa kanyang kabutihang nagawa ngunit bilang tulong na rin sa pamumuhay ng kanilang pamilya. Nais ni Mayor Ferdie na maging isang mabuting halimbawa si Emmanuel ng isang tunay na LODIng Baliwagenyo di lamang sa kanyang mga kapwa kawani ngunit pra na din sa lahat.

Di lamang sa mga pagkilala, tulong pinansyal at pagkapermanenteng ito nagtatapos ang mga biyayang natatanggap at tatanggapin pa ni Emmanuel sapagkat may ilang pribadong indibidwal at TV Shows na rin ang patuloy na nakikipag-ugnayan sa Pamahalaang Bayan ng Baliwag patungkol kay Emmanuel.

Wala nang amihan at opisyal na pong simula ng tag-init!

Tumigil na ang pag-iral ng amihan o northeast monsoon, ayon sa PAGASA.
Asahan na magiging mas mainit pa sa mga susunod na araw dahil sa pamamayani ng ridge ng high pressure area at easterlies.

Pero huwag ring magtaka kung umulan, posible pa rin kasi ang thunderstorms lalo sa hapon o gabi.
Ang publiko ay pinapayuhan na gumawa ng mga hakbang ukol sa pag-iingat upang makaiwas sa heat stress at iba pang sakit na maaring makuha kapag tag-init.

Marcelo – OIC PESO Manager, warmly gave her opening remarks to the graduating students and representives of government agencies and companies that were invited to participate in the said event.  She also shared that academic qualification or aptitude is very important but that is not the only requirement future employees are looking for.  Likewise, attitude plays a key role to get the job that YOU desire!.

According to Dr. Corazon Cruz – Dean/Academic Head, the advocacy of STI is to provide Enrollment to Employment; they believe that it is one way that they can assist the students in their journey to find a job that’s why they keep on having this job placement program.

“I know it will help a lot (Job Fair). Of course, on behalf of STI College, I would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude for gracing this day and visiting STI and of course with the set of employment positions that you have and encouragement you imparted to our students, I am very glad.” – she added.

In an interview with Ms. Julie Ann De Lara – Guidance and Placement Coordinator, she mentioned that as part of STI’s National Job Placement Month, they also conduct seminars such as Professional Development, Career Development, Personal Development, Resume Writing, Proper Dressing, and Interview Preparation. STI Baliuag has been conducting Job Fair for almost 3 years as part of their advocacy which is the E2E Program.

Here are some interviews of successful hired applicants:

“For me, lalo na po sa mga fresh graduates, ang laki nang maitutulong para po sa amin and siguro may dagdag rin pong opportunity na madaling makahanap ng trabaho. Salamat po sa STI at sa Municipality of Baliwag sa pag-conduct ng event na ito, dahil hindi madaling makahanap ng trabaho.”  – Ms. Christine Jave Waje from BS Business Management.jb12

“For me malaking tulong siya kasi bilang fresh graduate kami, hindi naman agad na may mga trabaho na kami na makikita or makukuha so malaking tulong talaga siya sa amin and maganda din ung programa na ginagawa ng STI, yung pakikipag-partnership with companies and government agencies. Sana ipagpatuloy nila yung ganitong programa dahil marami talaga itong natutulungan.” – Mr. Jericho Hernandez from BS Business Management.
