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 possessions, territory, power, control, family, betrayal, 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 always campaign to have its religious laws be accepted as government laws, always involved in wars and consistently causing WARS, yet insists that it's a religion of peace?


There are only two kinds of people who teach tolerance:
  1. The Bullies. They want you to tolerate them so they can continue to maliciously deprive you. Do not believe these bullies teaching tolerance, saying that it’s the path to prevent hatred and prejudice.
  2. The victims who are waiting for the right moment to retaliate. They can’t win yet, so they tolerate.

History of Minalin, Pampanga, Philippines

MINALIN: The Town that Moved and Stayed
by Lord Francis D. Musni
Consultant, CKS, Holy Angel University

The town of Minalin found on the right bank of the creek which drains from Sto. Tomas and the northeast mountains, derives its name from the word minalis which means “to move to.” Though one legend claims that its name was derived from a combination of the words Mina, which means mine, supposedly inscribed on a rock left at the place in 1700 by a Spaniard named José Espeleta, and Lin, the name of the founder of the town.

While another undocumented legend playing on Mina Linda de las Mujeres, meaning a mine of beautiful women. A gobernadorcillo by the name of Diego Tolentino wrote Minalin instead of Minalis in one of the expedientes and that is how it has been spelled since. In the Calendario Manual y Guia de Forasteros, for the years 1839 to 1841, Minalin was misspelled as Minalim.

Minalin is situated North of Sto.Tomas and is bound on the East by San Luis, San Simon and Apalit; by Macabebe on the South; and by Betis and Bacolor on the West.

Geographical accounts dating to as early as 1860 mentions that Minalin was producing rice, corn, sugar cane, cacao, indigo (añil) and fruits. When the rivers dried up, residents dug up wells to generate water for their animals as well as for irrigation. They also engaged themselves in fishing in water canals and swamps, while others go into trade, usually dealing in major commodities such as sugar including its production, and the production of dye, nipa wine and vinegar. They also weave some local fabrics for domestic use and mats (petates.

Most accounts trace the foundation of this town as early as 1614 when it was designated as a visita of Macabebe. In the Chapter held on May 17, 1614, the capitulars agreed to segregate this town from its former matrix, Macabebe and recommended that the Provincial appoint a minister to reside there. Its notice of separation from Macabebe was repeated in the next Chapter on April 29, 1617. It took about a year later though before a minister in the person of Fr. Miguel de Saldaña was assigned.

On October 31, 1624, the parish was accepted as a vicariate independent of Macabebe with Fr. Martin Vargas being appointed as its prior. In the Intermediate Chapter of 1633, Minalin was given the two visitas of Pangasinan and Tubungao, (Tabungao?) which act was reconfirmed in the 1639 Chapter. Its oldest barrio Tabungao, which most historians place to be the present barrio of Sta. Maria, was mentioned several times in the will of 1826 Will of Don Fernando Pañganiban, direct descendant of the great Don Fernando Balagtas. The Pañganiban will who traces his royal ancestry to the Lakandula household, many of whom are from Minalin, among them his mother Dña. Charolina Orian. It also made mention of one of his forebears, one Francisco Nuñga married to a certain Dña. Chatalina Mirmo, both come from Barrio Tabuñgao. The will further traces the roots of the testator to as early as Don Fernando Balagtas, also from Tabuñgao.

The convent of Minalin is fortunate to have been under the care of several zealous missionaries of the Augustinian Order. One extant letter written by Fr. Isidro Rodriguez from Minalin on May 5, 1670, mentions the concern for the growing expenses of sending missionaries to the Islands.

For unknown reasons, Minalin was aggregated to Bacolor following the Chapter of May 9, 1650. It was also aggregated to Betis in the Chapter of October 21, 1678, and again in May 11, 1680.

Records show that Minalin had 2600 souls by 1732. It had 4,544 souls in 1760. Following the expulsion of the Augustinians from Pampanga in 1771 as a result of the secularization controversy, native regulars were assigned to parishes. Don Lorenzo Malaca was the first native secular assigned to Minalin in 1771, followed by the more popular, Don Manuel Francisco Tubil. From 1771 up to about 1838, no Augustinians were assigned to Minalin. The last Augustinian friar assigned before the expulsion, Fr. Jose Sales, describes in his declaracÍon debajo juramento (statement under oath) the condition of the church at the time he turned it over to the Alcalde Mayor Pedro Diaz and to the “native Tagalo priest who did not speak the language of the province and the town.” Fr. Sales wrote that he turned over the church with its five altars, with their images, nine benches, two bronze bells in the tower, one large and the other one small, and three confessionals.” Also included were silver jewelry and ornaments of the church , 8 baptismal registers, 3 libros de padrones, 4 old account books , one registry for the dead, one book of receipts and expenses of the Cofradia de la ConsolacÍon, and one book for list of its members.”

A census of residents in the province of Pampanga in 1776 shows that of the total 64,053 inhabitants, 477 were either Europeans or Spanish mestizos; of these number 132 resided in Bacolor, 51 in Guagua, and 27 in Minalin, among others.

There are no records which indicate the actual construction date of the church of Minalin. The only extant account of its construction so far is the report prepared by Mayor Cristino Lagman dated July 30, 1911 mentioning that the church was completed in 1764 during the tenure of Bachiller Calixto Gregorio. Although a noted Kapampangan historian mentioned that the church was completed before 1834. Another document dated December 20, 1854 from the office of the Alcaldia Mayor of Pampanga reveals that a petition from the parish priest of Minalin, Fr. José Torres asking for permission to rebuild the church and parochial house, was granted. A newspaper account appearing in the July 5, 1866 issue of the Gaceta de Manila mentions that “the church was still under construction. “

The report on the pastoral visit of Fr. José Seguí, Archbishop of Manila to Pampanga in 1831 tends to shed some light on the details of the construction of the church. On May 10, 1831, Archbishop Segui proceeded to Minalin after making a similar pastoral visit to the nearby town of Baliuag (now Sto. Tomas.) Archbishop Segui was met at the church door by the secular parish priest of Minalin, Don Quintin Cándido Paríon, together with other local personages. It was reported that when Fr. Paríon arrived in Minalin, “the church was in ruins that they had to celebrate the sacrifice of the mass in a granary (camarin). “ The Inventario de 1827 says that the church “had five altars: the major altar, its two collaterals and two (others) found under the choir loft, with their corresponding images.” Curiously though, the 1831 report mentions only of “three altars and a convent with a roof made of nipa. The same report concludes by indicating that the liquidated funds (of the parish) amount to 938 tributes, with a population of 4,893 souls.

During Dr. Mauricio Miranda’s tenure as parish priest (1834), a great flood occurred in this town “that everything that was planted was inundated and many domestic animals were drowned.” The town experienced another flood “which brought waters higher than the level of the houses” during Fr. Ignacio Manzanares’ tenure.

Later accounts tell that Fr. Isidro Bernardo restored and embellished the church in 1877. While Fr. Galo de la Calle (1890) and Fr. Vicente Ruiz (1895) are known to have repaired minor damages during their respective tenure. Fray Ruiz is the last Augustinian friar assigned before the Revolution. Minalin church may have suffered only minor and insignificant damages during the Philippine Revolution for it is one of those few parishes that did not file any war claim.

In 1937 the Most Rev. Michael O’Doherty, Archbishop of Manila, approved the request of Rev. Fr. Prudencio David, parish priest of Minalin for permission and disbursement of funds for the re-plastering of the walls, and repainting of the church interiors. Fr. David was replaced by Fr. Daniel Castrillo, a Spanish Augustinian who was formerly assigned to Porac, in August 1942.

Bernardo Poblete (alias “Banal,”a.k.a. “Tandang Banal), one of the leaders that helped found the HUKBALAHAP (HUK) movement during the Japanese Occupation, was from Minalin. Poblete, a former active member of the Aguman ding Maldang Talapagobra (AMT,) a pre-war peasant socialist movement in Pampanga, was later elected as one of the four generals of the military committee which later became the “general headquarters. “ Minalin became for a while, one of the hot beds of HUK activity in Pampanga. Socialist Party founder Pedro B. Abad Santos stayed in Minalin during latter war years. He died of an acute ulcer with intestinal complications in a HUK settlement in Minalin on January 15, 1945.

On May 11 1948, Rev. Fr. Genaro M. Sazon laid down plans for a Catholic high school which will be housed in the parish convent. Minalin Academy opened its doors in 1948 with 40 students and 4 teachers.

The inscription of the Minalin Church by the National Museum in the Registry of National Cultural Treasures affirms its outstanding historical and cultural value which is highly significant and important to the country and nation. The inscription will provide the necessary government for its protection, conservation, and restoration. With the synergy of the parish church, the local government, and civic and non-governmental organizations, the inscription of Minalin Church as a national cultural treasure gives it the much needed impetus to boost local tourism. One of its outstanding features being its extant four capillas posas, a rarity, being the only one in the country, as confirmed in one of the most recent books on Philippine churches.

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


This is the "Barangay Code of the Philippines".

Barangay anim 4500.gif
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. Stop blaming others.

  • 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.

Natural Resources of Minalin, Pampanga, 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.
