The Philippines has been a "decentralized" form of government since 1991, contrary to what most Filipinos think. Ever since the creation of Republic Act 7160, each LGU is responsible for its own domain. Even the smallest LGU the barangay creates its own Budget. It is not dependent on handouts from the city, municipality or province. "IMPERIAL MANILA IS A MYTH!", it does not exist anymore. The Philippine budget formulation system is not centralized. "Budgetary planning has been DECENTRALIZED since 1991". It is the responsibility of each LGU to submit their budgetary needs for review. Failure to submit is the problem.

Wars of ancient history were about territory, power, family or lover's quarrel, politics and sometimes religion.

But we are in the Modern era and supposedly more educated and enlightened .

Think about this. Don't just brush off these questions.

  • Why is RELIGION still involved in WARS? Isn't religion supposed to be about PEACE?
  • Ask yourself; What religion is always involved in wars and consistently causing WARS, yet insists that it's a religion of peace?

WHY??

HISTORY OF CARIBQUIB, BANNA, ILOCOS NORTE

by Flordelina B. Utleg - May 5, 2011

A popular local story also provides for the origin of the barangay’s name: • It is said that long time ago, the place was covered with thick forests and plenty of grasses. But when the early settlers practiced kaingin (slash and burn agriculture), the trees disappeared and the grasses dried up. Animals had to feed on scanty and dried grass. However, there was a certain place on the side of a hill where stunted grasses grew. It was there where the people gazed their animals. Since there were only few grasses, the animals had to kibkib (to consume bit by bit) the grasses. It is believed that this caused the people to name the place Caribquib. • The barangay has sprawling agricultural lands, forests and creeks (Manuel, Adonis B. Jan. 30, 2011)

Barangay's power and authority: A must read for all barangay officials

This is the "Barangay Code of the Philippines".

 
A Barangay Clearance is NEEDED in order to get a Business License.
So why is the barangay name not in most business addresses?
Ask your Barangay Captain/Chairman to create a Resolution to make it mandatory to put the barangay name in all Business addresses.
Every Government Unit in the Philippines is within a Barangay. The municipal hall, city hall, the provincial capitol building, and even the Malacañang Palace where the president resides is within a Barangay.

The barangay has power and authority over its domain. The improvement of the barangay rests on the barangay officials. The barangay chairman, the barangay council and the local businessmen forge the prosperity of the barangay. Not the president of the Philippines, senate, nor congress. Not the governor of the province, not the mayor nor council of the municipality or city. Poor barangays stay poor because of weak and/or ignorant(uninformed) barangay leaders.

When roads or any infrastructure need to be built, improved or repaired, all the barangay officials have to do is make a resolution and present it to the city or municipality council. The resolution will force the city/municipal council or responsible government office to hear the legitimate demands. "The squeaky wheel gets the grease."

Each city or municipality is represented by the "barangay association or federation". The elected president of the Association of Barangay Council and the President of Kabataan (SK) association each have a seat in the City/Municipality council. Their powers are the same and equal to the elected city/municipality councilors. They are there to help lobby the demands of the barangays. They are not there just to collect a big salary and rub elbows with the regular elected city/municipality council, but to also represent the needs of the barangays.
The duties of the barangay officials are specifically written in Chapter III(Punong Barangay) and Chapter IV (The Sangguniang Barangay). Read it..

Practically anything that has to do with the barangay, the barangay officials have a say on it and most likely the authority over it. The majority of the barangay officials are not aware of their duties and power. They depend on the city council or mayor. The elected barangay officials are afraid of the mayor and city/municipality's "Sangguniang Panlungsod". They are in fear of being ousted or removed from office. The truth is, the "Sangguniang Panlungsod" does not have the power to remove or suspend any elected barangay officials from office. Only the COURT OF LAW can do this (judicial branch of the government). Elected public officials can't be suspended by the DILG or the office of the president unless an official complaint has been filed, there must be proof and there must be due process. Republic Act 7160 chapter 4, Section 60. Information is power. Be informed. Do not be intimidated by the president, senator, congressman, governor, mayor, vice-mayor, or councilors. Do your job.

The control of traffic is not up to the city council or chief of police. It is controlled by the barangay. If the barangay needs traffic enforcers, the barangay can make a resolution to demand it from the city or municipality council. When the electric coop or the water district do not maintain their lines, the barangay can directly demand for the maintenance from the utility companies. No need to wait for city council.

The citizens also has the power to make demands to the barangay officials. In case the officials get blinded. Simply file an official complaint with the barangay secretary naming the Punong barangay as the respondent representing the barangay.

If the power lines are sagging, don't go to the power company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the power company.
If the water lines are busted, don't wait for the water company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the water company.
If the potholes in the road are not fixed, don't wait for the The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the DPWH.
Are you beginning to get the point?

Cleaning the shorelines, drainage systems, streets, rivers, and parks within your barangay is YOUR responsibility. You are accountable for this. It is not the responsibility of the City/Municipality officials. The citizens and officials of the barangay are responsible.

  • BUDGET: As far as the preparation for the budget expenditures, it starts at the barangay level, then moves on to cities, municipalities, provinces and regions. The barangays need to exercise their authority. They need to put their yearly budget together for their administration and future projects. The majority of the barangays leave this job to the municipality and city. This is so wrong. Then when the budget doesn't come or is lacking, they complain.
  • The budget for the barangays does go to the City or Municipality, but simply for holding and later distribution. The city or municipality DOES NOT approve the budget. It was already approved by congress. The city or municipality simply "distributes" the approved budget.
  • The bureau of internal revenue is in cahoots to subdue the barangays, municipalities and provinces. They call the rightful shares to the taxes collected as "Internal Revenue Allotment Dependency". It is not a dependency. It is the lawful and rightful share of the LGU as specified in "TITLE III, SHARES OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNITS IN THE PROCEEDS OF NATIONAL TAXES, CHAPTER I, Allotment of Internal Revenue Taxes, Section 284."
  • "IMPERIAL MANILA IS A MYTH!", it does not exist anymore. The Philippine budget formulation system is not centralized. "Budgetary planning has been DECENTRALIZED since 1991". It is the responsibility of each LGU to submit their budgetary needs for review. Failure to submit is the problem.
  • DURING ELECTIONS: Where do City and Municipality politicians go to campaign? They seek the support of the Barangay officials. They plead to the barangay folks for the votes. Even the candidate for president. But after the election they ignore you. Do not ever forget the power of the barangay.

Ignorance keeps the pinoys thinking that Manila rules. Be informed, be educated and make your barangay prosper.

  • Absolutely NO need for FEDERALISM. It is a ploy to give the Bangsamoro an Islamic State where the religion of Islam is financed by the Philippine government. Bangsamoro will be a HOMELAND not for all Filipinos but for only the Muslim Filipinos. It violates the constitution's "separation of church and state". Religion is always good for the people but it should never be embraced or financed by government. Tax exemption is not tantamount to financing. Every non-profit organization is tax-exempt.

Brief Profile of Barangay Caribquib

  • Barangay Caribquib, one of the twenty barangays of Banna, Ilocos Norte, is located on the north part of the municipality. It is found three kilometers north of the poblacion. It is bounded on the south by Barangay Valenciano of the same municipality, on the north by Barangay Fortuna, Marcos, Ilocos Norte, on the west by Barangay Barbarangay, another barangay of Banna and on the east by Barangay Tabtabagan, Banna, Ilocos Norte. It has a total land area of six hundred hectares ( 600 ha.).
  • Barangay Caribquib is composed of the following sitios: Caribquib Proper, Dispensa, San Juan, Nanamburan and Daramuangan. These sitios are far from each other.
  • This barangay was established in 1913 when Banna became a regular municipality after it was separated from the Municipality of Batac, Ilocos Norte.
    • The original families were those of Pedro Valentino, Tranquilino Dimaya and Apolonio Dizol. The earliest tenientes del barrio were: Tranquilino Dimaya, Francisco Ramones, Herminigildo Valentino, Blas Braceros, Valentin Limet, Saturnino Tabucbuc, Francisco Aspili, Aurelio Romualdo, Mardonio Quimoyog, Paulino Lumbo, Fermin Valentino and Januario Pascua.
  • A popular local story also provides for the origin of the barangay’s name:
    • It is said that long time ago, the place was covered with thick forests and plenty of grasses. But when the early settlers practiced kaingin (slash and burn agriculture), the trees disappeared and the grasses dried up. Animals had to feed on scanty and dried grass. However, there was a certain place on the side of a hill where stunted grasses grew. It was there where the people gazed their animals. Since there were only few grasses, the animals had to kibkib (to consume bit by bit) the grasses. It is believed that this caused the people to name the place Caribquib.
    • The barangay has sprawling agricultural lands, forests and creeks. Farming is the primary occupation of the people whose main crops are rice, garlic, tobacco and onions. Aside from the farmers, many of the people in the place work as teachers, employees, businessmen and balikbayans.
    • A public elementary school and a national secondary school are situated in the barangay and these institutions serve as the educational grounds for the barangay’s young children and learners.
    • Barangay Caribquib is one of the most agriculturally productive barangays of the municipality contributing to food security and to the economic prosperity in the locality.
    • Owing to the culture of the place and in keeping with tradition the residents of Barangay Caribquib are an industrious, frugal and disciplined people. This can be manifested by an above-average and more affluent lifestyle enjoyed by the barangay’s inhabitants.
    • Because of the existence of an elementary and secondary school within the barangay, there is a higher rate of literacy among the people. And as a barangay situated along a major road, the Ilocos Norte- Abra National Highway, there is a greater opportunity for the barangay’s learners to pursue post secondary and tertiary level education. Thus, there is a higher ratio of college graduates and professionals than is usually found in the more remote barangays of the municipality.
    • Barangay Caribquib has also attained other areas of distinction in the municipality. Owing to a diligent , dedicated and committed barangay government headed by equally diligent, dedicated and committed barangay officials, Barangay Caribquib has attained the distinction of winning ( three – time Champion , Category A) the municipality’s OPLAN SALUKAG PROGRAM ( Operation Plan: Saluadam Lugar Ken Aglawlaw), an environmental program and competition initiated and conducted annually by the Local Government of Banna. Likewise, Barangay Caribquib has been a consistent winner ( three-time 1ST Place Awardee) of the CARLY AWARDS ( Community Acclaimed Rural Legislators of the Year Awards) also held annually in the municipality.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND COST:
  • The Banna Zipline Project is located in the Paraiso ti Caribquib, in particular, on the sprawling forest area and creek on the western part of Barangay Caribquib, at Sitio Daramuangan.
  • At first the banks along the creek of the Paraiso ti Caribquib was just an alternative site for a picnic for those who had had enough of the sun and water afforded by the town’s rivers , and the soaring hills and forests around the creek as another destination for a trek for the more adventurous type.
  • The Sitio of Daramuangan wherein can be found the Paraiso ti Caribquib became the venue of a Walk for a Cause conducted in the Year of 2007 by the Roman Catholic Church -Parish of San Roque . Likewise, a Mass and a Thanksgiving Service was held at the same venue, with the presence of the Diocesian Bishop Sergio Utleg. Then Municipal Mayor, Honorable CARLITO A. ABADILLA II attended both events and saw the area’s potential.
  • It is noteworthy to mention at this juncture that the Municipality of Banna, Ilocos Norte represented by then Municipal Mayor Honorable CARLITO A. ABADILLA II witnessed the signing of a Memorandum of Agreement for the development of a one hundred-hectare ( 100 ha.) area under a co-management scheme with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) of ILOCOS NORTE and the Barangay Council of Caribquib represented by Punong Barangay Adonis Manuel for eco-tourism cum forest protection purposes.
  • Wishing to start developing the site, the Barangay Government of Caribquib and its constituents, through self-help, built a handful of cottages on one side of the creek.
  • But it was through the stroke of genius of Honorable Carly Abadilla II, then at the helm of the Local Government of Banna, and greatly inspired to develop the area as an eco-tourism venture and as a premier destination for pleasure and recreation for people, vacationers and visitors that the Paraiso ti Caribquib became famous and a destination of choice.
  • With an allocation from the Banna Municipal Fund, the Banna Zipline Project, the first ever to be built and installed in the whole Province of Ilocos Norte ,became a reality. To complement the exhilarating experience derived from a heart-stopping ride at the Zipline, a Hanging Bridge was built by the Local Government Of Banna, Ilocos Norte near the Zipline. This hanging bridge induces the same adrenaline- producing experience given by the Zipline.
  • Due to the daily large number of people visiting the Paraiso and wishing to ride the Zipline and walk on the Hanging Bridge, the Barangay Government of Caribquib installed additional cottages along the banks at a cost of Twenty Five Thousand Pesos and landscaped the areas in the site for added attraction. Donations from other sources greatly helped to improve the area.
PROJECT IMPLEMENTATION
  • To date there are now five (5) cottages built and owned by the Barangay Government of Caribquib , and four (4) built and owned by each of four sitios of the barangay. An area of the forest has been cleared to serve as parking space for vehicles carrying visitors to the area.
  • The Barangay Government of Caribquib manages the operation of the Paraiso Ti Caribquib Resort, including the Zipline , Hanging Bridge and other facilities in the site.
  • For those wishing to visit the Paraiso Ti Caribquib avail of its facilities at the following cost:
    • Cottage Fee: Php 200.00 / cottage/day
    • Entrance Fee: Php 5.00 per head
    • Zipline: Php 50.00/ride
PROJECT RESULT

'PHASE 4

TREE PLANTING IN PARAISO TI CARIBQUIB, BANNA, ILOCOS NORTE ON SEPTEMBER 10, 2010'

By Flordelina B. Utleg – May 5, 2011

Climbing the mountain to plant trees is the greatest adventure of an individual. It measures how strong and healthy a person is and how he loves the mother earth.

The thirteen CTE students and Mr. Michael Jay Calaramo with the three (3) Northwestern University security guards left Northwestern University campus at 7:45 in the morning. The CTE-SO adviser, Ms. Flordelina B. Utleg with her sister and her friend waited for them at the Laoag-Gabu Road junction. While they were at the junction, they took a picture while waiting for one (1) CTE student. The group rode in a dump truck with laughter. They stayed at the back. The adviser and her sister sat in front. The group reached Paraiso ti Caribquib at 8:45 A.M. They took a rest for few a minutes.

At 9:00 o’clock the group with some barangay officials carried the seedlings and proceeded to the way going to the mountain. Mr. Calaramo was left because he was busy planning and sketching the other side of the mountain. They walked beside the zipline center. When they were about thirty (30) meters away from the zipline, somebody shouted to tell them that they should go back. They went down and proceeded to the other way beside the videooke center.

While they were climbing the mountain, cheerfulness characterized by laughter pervaded. The students and some officials were very fast to walk and it was very slippery. The adviser sometimes held the weeds when she climbed. When the way was so steep and slippery, the guard held her hand and pulled her so she could go up. Some slippers were destroyed. The group sat down and took a little rest when they got tired and they teased each other. Though how tired they were, still they felt joy and happiness. The security guards informed the group that they enjoyed the activity. They suggested their participation in a similar activity.

They planted some Gmelina seedlings on the way going up the mountain. They reached the peak of the mountain after 30-45 minutes and while they sat down for few minutes to rest, one dragonfly alighted on her foot and after few minutes another came. This brought another hilarious experience. They knew they have come part of the environment.

After rest, the officials dug holes where they planted the seedlings. They worked and fast and though they were sweating profusely under the heat of the sun they were swept with feelings of satisfaction because their goal of helping restore the balance of nature through tree planting was achieved. They never complained of fatigue. Taking pictures while planting was another experience which brought joy. This is for posterity.

The last seedling was planted by the adviser. The security guards made a tree guard for her plant and labeled it, “LINA NWU” (LINA the four ending letters of FLORDELINA). After planting, they devoured the “Dingdong cornik” they brought. They drank the cold water which the barangay officials brought.

When they started to go down at 11:20 A.M., they were grouped into three. The first group told that there is another way going down. The second group did not follow. They followed the way where they passed when they went up. The third group (adviser’s group) decided whom to follow. At first, they followed the first group but when the second group shouted that there was no way going down where they went. The two groups went back and followed the second group. They were all laughing when they were all together going down again.

When they reached the cottage where they left their baggage, they told the adviser that they were so hungry. The adviser told them to bring out the foods. Mariecris Duldulao, the CTE-SO Treasurer, and Gladys Bumanglag, the CTE-SO President, went to buy soft drinks for the group. Mr. Michael Jay Calaramo with the three security guards took their lunch at the town proper. Some of the group together with the adviser went to take a bath first at the dam. Because the water was deep so they preferred to bathe using the flowing water from a hose. After taking a bath, they went back to the cottage and took their lunch. One official came to give foods for the group and asked for Mr. Calaramo. The adviser called Mr. Calaramo by her mobile phone telling him that the officials prepared lunch for them. Mr. Calaramo came back after a few minutes. He and the adviser joined the officials to take their lunch.

At 1:00 in the afternoon, they left the place. The group who took a bath did not change their clothes. They were wet when they went home. They reached Laoag at 2:00 o’clock and they went directly to Payas Botanical Garden. The group went inside the “Butterfly cage” and had picture taking. The group left the place after 30 minutes. Mr. Calaramo told the group that they will go back to Paraiso ti Caribquib again after the intramurals.

Everybody went home with combined feelings of joy and contentment.

Caimito and chesa are not native but they were introduced in the Philippines; alukon is endemic because it is found only in Luzon; pakak wood is used in making guitars. The mango that we call “native mango” is not true because this fruit came from India and avocado is a native tree of South America. He also informed the body that fireflies are rarely seen now because of the lack native of trees now. Eucalyptus, mahogany and gymelina have been introduced.

He also informed the group that Siccapo in Solsona, Ilocos Norte, is the highest mountain in Ilocos Norte which is about 2,000 feet above sea level; second highest mountain is Mt.

The members of the group distributed the copy of the topics to all of the participants. Prof. Utleg greeted them before she started the seminar. She explained line by line and the participants were very participative during the discussion. All of them reacted when she was discussing on “Know how to say I love you”. She explained that saying “I love you or hugging and kissing” are also ways of saying “thank you”. She requested them to say “I love you, Kapitan” and they were all very excited and said “I love you, Kapitan” and the Brgy. Chairman, Hon. Adonis B. Manuel faced them with a smile and in return, he said also, “I love you, too”. Then each of them said “I love you” to the person seated beside them.

Another topic that aroused the interest of the group was the discussion on “Be considerate and be flexible”. She told them that they must see to it that their companion is in the proper mood before making or cracking a joke. One barangay council made the comment that all husbands and wives should attend the seminar to improve their relationships.

Hon. Manuel reacted on the topic, “Accept criticism”. He faced the cooks and told them, “So if I will tell you that the food you cooked is very salty, then don’t pout and hate me because how can you improve the taste if you do not accept criticism”. The cooks smiled at him saying “yes” with the glow in their eyes.

LECTURE/DEMO ON PROCESSING OF MORINGA LEAVES CUM ENHANCEMENT OF HERBAL MEDICINAL GARDEN/TREE PLANTING BY: FLORDELINA B. UTLEG APRIL 21, 2017


In order to sustain the tree planting and medicinal garden that the proponent had conducted in the barangay, a seminar on food processing using moringa leaves as main ingredient and enhancement of the herbal medicinal garden was conducted. As a continuation of the program, the proponent shared their knowledge on how to make refreshing shakes/tea and other food products using the moringa leaves as main ingredient. Along with the lecture demo on food processing of moringa leaves, an enhancement of the herbal garden was also conducted. There are a number of advantages that one may gain from the creation of an herb garden and growing of moringa leaves which is also considered as herbal plant. An herb garden can be a very attractive addition to the barangay, and if constructed properly, it can actually benefit the community of its medicinal benefits. By investing a small amount of money, time, energy, and space, they can save a tremendous amount of money over the long term by growing their own herbs. While other people continue to use synthetic medications which were produced in a laboratory, they can use natural herbs which come from nature itself.

On August 20, 2016, CTE and VJSSGS faculty and students of Northwestern University gathered at 7:30 in the morning for the community extension program in Brgy. Caribquib, Banna, Ilocos Norte and they left the university campus at exactly 8:00 o’clock headed by the CTE/VJSSGS community extension coordinator, Ms. Flordelina B. Utleg.

NWU team was welcomed by the barangay officials headed by the Brgy. Chairman Lorna Bueno and right after, the activities started. The enhancement of the medicinal garden and demonstration on processing of malunggay leaves were done simultaneously. The enhancement of the medicinal garden was headed by Dr. Shirley Mina and Dr. Esmeralda Albano Baldonado, both professors of the CTE and VJSSGS along with the Non-Academic Staff headed by Ms. Amerly Dumlao, Extension Coordinator of the Non-Academic Unit. The demonstration on processing of malunggay leaves was headed by the extension coordinator of CTE/VJSSGS.

Before the landscaping of the medicinal garden, Mr. Michael Calaramo, the manager of the Eco-Tourism and Botanical Garden of NWU oriented the faculty, staff, and students on how to plant the herbal medicinal plants. The faculty and students of CTE/VJSSGS together with the non-academic staff cooperatively planted the different herbal medicinal plants such as oregano, tanglad, herba maria, mayana, kutsay, dangla, aloe vera, pancit pancitan, basil, rhoea discolor, atis and guyabano.

The lecture/demo on processing of moringa leaves started with the discussion of the rationale of the activity by Mr. Melvin Apiado, the Secretary of Young Educators Society (YES) after which, he introduced the demonstrators. Ms. Jovelyn C. Salmorin, the President of YES, demonstrated the moringa flavor shake. After her demonstration, Ms. Salmorin gave the beneficiaries and students a taste test and they said it was delicious. The second demonstrators were Zhanaynge Klei Apostol, the Vice-President and Neliza Benito, a member of the organization. They demonstrated on how to make moringa tea while Leslee Bumanglag, a 4th year representative, demonstrated moringa flavor coffee. All the tasters said it was delicious. Last to demonstrate was Ms. Susan Bonifacio, the community extension program coordinator, she demonstrated the moringa burger patties. The beneficiaries and students helped in the preparation of the ingredients. The participants watched the demonstrator while she was cooking the patties. When the patties were cooked already, Neliza Benito sliced it and allowed the participants to have a taste test.

After the seminar, the CTE faculty and students turned over the donated 10-meter net to the Brgy. Chairman of Caribquib. The net shall serve as a protection for the herbal garden against other elements that might destroy the garden. It was agreed by the proponents and the community that installation of the net shall be the responsibility of the barangay.
