MAASIN CITY, Southern Leyte, Sept. 25 (PIA) -- Out of the 16 regions across the country, the Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Region 8 office, along with Region 3 and the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) offices, has been busy these days to comply with the procedures and requirements to attain the ISO 2009-9001 certification.

Rolando Juanillo, TESDA Director of Southern Leyte province, disclosed during the “Action Center” cable TV program Thursday that once their office would become ISO-certified, their services and programs can be delivered more efficiently, such as the processing of registration for technical-vocational skills training providers or for qualified private institutions.

1:35 am | Sunday, September 25Top officials climb at the tree park at Bogo, Maasin City.th, 2011

One day in April, Florentino Saludo led a team of 19 men in trekking through the forest of Sitio Canlugoc in Lunas, Maasin, Southern Leyte, with a mission in mind: to cut trees.

For the past 19 years, Saludo and his team had been planting trees in some 500 hectares of land under the reforestation program of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). On that day, they set out to harvest their crop.

The men stopped in front of a 40-centimeter-thick mahogany. The sound of a chainsaw filled the air and died down minutes later. A loud creak, the tree thudded to the ground, and the forest was silent again.

The tree was measured, cut in half, and put in a carabao-drawn cart for hauling.

MAASIN CITY – Work has started on a P55 million ten kilometer asphalt overlay project along the Maharlika highway between Libagon and Liloan towns en route to Mindanao, the same stretch where more than P40 million asphalt overlay was scraped after only three years of use.

Based on the estimate from Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) national office, the new asphalting of the ten kilometer stretch amounted to P149 million, says Engineer Carlos Veloso, head of the Southern Leyte Engineering District (Sled), in an interview.

The highly overpriced project was, however, corrected and reduced to only P55 million on the reported timely opposition of the Sled district engineer.  Engr. Carlos Veloso
