History of Molave, Zamboanga del Sur, Philippines

- Article copied verbatim
Molave is the core of the Salug Valley, a rich and fertile river basin in the eastern part of the province comprising the municipalities of Molave, Tambulig, Mahayag, Dumingag and part of Ramon Magsaysay. It is so centrally located, so much so that a town plan was already approved before World War II when it was still a barrio(barangay). It is drained by three rivers, namely:Dipolo, Salug Daku and Salug Diut. It is named after a strong hard and resilient tree abundant in the vast forest lands in the early twenties. Before its creation into a municipality, Molave used to be part of Aurora town. It was then called Salug meaning "floor", possibly because of the abundance of molave trees, so that the wide valley looked like a green floor from above. Because of the fertility of the soil, many were attracted to come and settle down in Molave. It has a total land area of 251.50 square kilometers, with 40,423 inhabitants. Its population is a conglomeration of varied ethnic groups, including cultural communities. It has an annual income of P 33,430,858.00
Molave became a municipality by virtue of Republic Act No. 377, dated June 14, 1949. The creation of Molave was mainly due to the efforts of Assemblyman Juan S. Alano. The first appointed mayor was Hon. Pelagio Blancia. He served from 1949-1951.
Those who succeeded him are the following: Hon. Javier A. Ariosa, 1952-1962; Hon. Daniel Mantos, 1962-1963(by succesion); Hon. Paciano Guillen, 1964-1979; 1982-1986; Hon. Jose M. Geromo, Sr. 1980-1982; 1986-1987; Hon. Vidala M. Geromo, 1988-1992; Hon. Encarnacion O. Blancia, 1992-2001; Hon. Flavio J. Saniel, Jr., 2001 up to present.
The land area of Molave has been greatly diminished since three municipalities have been carved out of it, namely:Dumingag 1957;Tambulig 1958; and Mahayag 1960; and later Josefina in 1977. Its population has likewise been reduced to only 37,677. However, with its vast tracts of ricefields, Molave stands out as the "rice granary in District 1" of Zamboanga del Sur. And because of its strategic location, it is the business center of the eastern towns.

Natural Resources of Molave, Zamboanga del Sur, Philippines
- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.
