The distribution of vouchers to 550 recipients highlighted the inauguration by the President of the Quezonian Livelihood and Learning Center (QLLC) and the graduation of this year's batch of 1,009 student trainees who completed their respective courses in the Center.
The PGMA-TWSP vouchers are for trainings or courses in slaughtering operations, consumer electronics servicing, computer hardware servicing, front office, medical transcription, call center agents, heavy equipment operations, household servicing, food and beverage servicing and shielded metal arc welding.
The President, who was assisted by Quezon Gov. Rafael Nantes, Quezon 2nd District Rep. Proceso Alcala, QLLCI Chairman Conrado Escudero and TESDA Deputy Diretor General Teodoro Gatchalian, handed over the vouchers to Zoraida Amper, superintendent of the Quezon National Agricultural School, in behalf of would-be scholars.
The President was then ushered into the QLLC where she was given a brief tour of the Center's facilities that include the F&B service, Household Service, High Speed Sewing, Computer, Cosmetology and Reflexology rooms.
This was followed by the President's unveiling of a mural depicting Jesus' Multiplication of the Loaves. The mural was designed by painter Vicente Fario on the request of the Daughters of St. Francis whose missionary works with the Center focus on values formation and inspired the artworks.
Through a tie-up with the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Provincial Office in Quezon, the Quezon National Agricultural School (QNAS) and the office of Quezon 2nd District Rep. Proceso Alcala, the QLLC, Inc. was formed in October 2007 to provide livelihood assistance to the people. (PIA-MMIO

WHAT’S UP, DAWG?
David Cook into the holiday spirit with a reindeer-inspired Pluto on Friday in the Magic Kingdom in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
The 25-year-old American Idol champ recorded a segment for
the “Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade”, putting his
rocker spin on a holiday classic, “Have Yourself A Merry Little
Christmas”. After he was done, he took questions from the
audience, and played peek-a-boo with some kids who were in the first
row (those are the pics with him holding up the guitar). The Disney
Christmas Day Parade will air nationwide @ 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. ET on
Christmas Day, Dec. 25 on ABC.
Check out the video of David singing “HYAMLC” from last week’s 2008 Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in Rockefeller Center.

At the Palarong Quezon provincial athletic meet at
the San Narciso Central School here, Nantes called on the people of
Quezon who" truly love their province" to vote a resounding "No" during
the Dec. 13 plebiscite on Republic Act No. 9495 which calls for the
split of Quezon provided affirmed by the voters.
The governor said he remained silent about the issue
during the past several months because he concentrated on bringing
development projects to all parts of Quezon, particularly the
construction of 330 school rooms and improvement of infrastructure
projects all over the province.
Nantes cited a passage from the Holy Bible about
King Solomon and two mothers who bitterly contested for custody of a
child. Earlier, the mother, whose child died, swapped her dead baby
with a live child whose mother was sleeping. When the mother woke up
and discovered what happened, she appealed to King Solomon who
immediately called the other mother to return the baby.
But the other mother refused to return the baby. So
King Solomon ordered the baby to be split into two to satisfy the two
The true mother objected to the king’s
decision and said she would agree to give her baby to the other mother
just to let her child remain undivided and alive. Hearing this, Solomon
declared "you are the true mother and you truly love your child because
you don’t want your child to be divided!"
Nantes told 5,000 residents, public officials,
teachers, athletes and students at the Palarong Quezon that "those who
don’t want to divide Quezon are those who truly love their

During a rally held here, organizers pursuing the creation of Quezon del Sur said it will materialize due to the way the campaign is being conducted and with the support of a Catholic Church bishop and several church-based organizations and civic groups.
Former Pitogo, Quezon Mayor Rafael Glinoga said the third district of Quezon could muster 100 percent "yes" votes.
A mayor in the fourth district of Quezon said the area could give 75 percent yes votes in favor of the creation of Quezon del Sur.
Political analysts in the province estimated that in the first district of Quezon, 70 percent yes votes could be achieved. In Lucena City, 80 percent yes votes could be expected, and the 60 percent yes votes from the other towns of the second district of Quezon.
Proponents said it will be their turn to have their own province, to bring the government and its services closer to the people.
Mayors and local officials in the rally unanimously endorsed to President Arroyo former Quezon Rep. Aleta Suarez as interim governor in case Quezon del Sur is created in the plebiscite.

(QPL), the owner and operator of the 470-megawatt coal-fired power plant in Mauban, Quezon, formalized their partnership on sustainable development program through the signing of Memorandum of Agreement on February 23, 2004.
The project, known as Quezon People and Organizations Working on Economic Recovery through Technology, Research, Agriculture, Innovations, and Livelihood Showcases (Quezon POWER TRAILS) aims to improve the quality of life of underprivileged members of its neighboring communities through an integrated and area-focused approach in developing the leadership, farming, technical and entrepreneurial skills and attitudes of beneficiaries. Over 90 out-of-school youths, farmers, fishermen, and women from Mauban, Quezon will benefit from the pilot project.
The partnership covers PSFI scholarship programs such as Sanayan sa Kakayahang Industriyal (SKIL) and Sanayan sa Kakayahang Agrikultura (SAKA) for out-of-school youth, Sanayan sa Kakayahang Pangangalakal (SKP) and Integrated Farming Bio-Systems (IFBS) for farmers, fisherfolks and women, and post-training assistance (i.e. the showcasing/application of learned knowledge and skills in the community).
“We are proud to be partners in business and in Sustainable Development. This is one way of giving back to the community. Our company won’t be prosperous if the community around us is not prosperous,” said Shell companies in the Philippines (SciP) Country Chairman Edgar Chua during the briefing.
“The entrepreneurial training in Shell will be a great addition to our sustainable development programs. We recognize the expertise and skills that Shell Foundation will bring to the community. It is our mutual commitment to help the people to become self-sufficient and contribute to their socio-economic development”, said QPL General Manager Frank Bart Lucarelli.

Calaca, Batangas- Activist from the Greenpeace Southeast Asia held a press conference August 30 at the ash pond where toxic byproducts of the 600-megawatt coal-fired power plant of the National Power Corporation are deposited. They hope to convey the message "Coal Kills." At least 17 members of the group planted 200 white crosses in the barren ash field of the Napocor plant to dramatize the toxic pollution associated with coal-fired plants. Representatives of the Crusade for Sustainable Environment based in Mauban, Quezon, which opposes the operation of a similar coal-fired power plant in their community, were also present to express their solidarity. Red Constantino of the Greenpeace explained that communities surrounding the coal plant are potential graveyards. According to him, reports conducted by the Philippine Institute for Pure and Applied Chemistry confirmed the presence of "neurotoxin mercury" in ash dumped by Napocor on open fields beside the plant. Mercury is so dangerous that it takes only 1/70th of a teaspoon of it to contaminate a 62-hectare lake. Aside from Calaca plant, the country also operates a 1, 200-megawatt plant in Sual, Pangasinan; a 40-megawatt plant in Mauban, Quezon; a 700-megawatt station in Pagbilao, Quezon; and a 700-megawatt station in Zambales.
