to one of Lucena Citys malls where the electoral office set up a
temporary registration station. As old voters, we had our records
checked using our senior citizens IDs.
The registration for new voters and the re-registration of old
voters were systematic (patterned after the systems adopted by the
NBI and DFA). After revalidation (through computerized records) of
our voters registration we were endorsed to the digital

LIQUIDITY: Our domestic liquidity (M3 in technical terms)
continued to ease last month (October) even as the Bangko Sentral
adjusted upwards the reserve requirements of bank deposits and
special deposit accounts (SDA). M3 the broadest measuring stick of
liquidity expanded by 15.4% to P7.208 trillion last month. The rate
is slower than those for the previous two months (18.3% in August,
and 16.2% in September, 2014).
There was a recorded expansion of credit to the private sector.
Its good, because the loans during the month were channeled to key
production sectors wholesale and retail trade, real estate,
renting, manufacturing, business services, utilities and financial
intermediation. On the other side of stratum, public sector loans
also went up (to P1.07 trillion) as government deposits with BSP
were withdrawn to pay maturing obligations.
POLICIES: Threats of inflation surface when money supply exceeds
credit demands of the economy. To siphon in excess liquidity the
Monetary Board raised the reserve requirements on deposits (which

A pieceof Wit
First, I would like to thank my publisher Ben Babar for having
faith in me that I am never too old to continue proving my craft.
In itself, writing is not just a passion but it is more than
setting a fulfilling career.
I had columns in the past telling readers about the importance
of reading. And over a year, I valued the things I learned from
reading articles about a woman who built the National Book Store
(NBS). This person herself who never ashamed telling the people
that she never had a college degree. And this woman I am saying is
Socorro Nanay Ramos who caught my interest reading the last article
she wrote at the Philippine Star sometime last year. She retired as
a writer when she turned 90 last 2013. The same time I embraced her
as my new inspiration who said that she started doing columns at
the age of 83. Her words inspired me with a golden thought as she
said: Whether you want to start a career or you want to say sorry,
remember..its NEVER TOO LATE. So guys! I dont regret, neither feels
sorry that I am still here for my PIECE OF WIT to inculcate within
me the joy and wonder in this journey; to bring fulfillment not
only for myself but for others as well.
Somehow, it makes me sad, because I was averse to reading in the
past. I should have achieved more if I was not a person who loved
pleasure than read books. So..opposite of what I used to be, now I
instigate reading to every young people. Im just thankful I have
children who read a lot. And more thankful I have a granddaughter
who loves books most. I remember reading The Alchimist by Paolo
Coehlo which took me days before I finished the book. My 9 year old
granddaughter took it just overnight! My eldest daughter who is her
mom, would always buy books for her. While I am the strict mentor
in English speaking. At home she cant speak bicol or tagalog, not
to pretend that we are Americans, but because I knew its an
investment. You reap what you sow. Im not surprised she is
launching her first article, which she wrote in school recently
during her journalism workshop at Naga Central School. My
granddaughter is turning 10 on December 13.

Philippine Bible Society in view of the centennial celebration of

Legacion said the Bibles, given to him on Nov. 26 at the

to make the best better.
All the systems we have established in the city for the

are all anchored on the principles of disciple-ship and
servant-leadership shared by Jesus Christ, Legacion said.
In his speech, the vice mayor thanked the mem-bers of the

It is refreshing to have someone as your orga-nization to remind

growing up. Then fi nally when I was old enough to read books by
myself, she let me explore it on my own. My mother, relatives and

The Budget Offi cer inEducational Development

In any undertaking much more in a big agency, whether private or
public, a budget offi cer is of prime importance. In him lies the
day-to-day transactions, month by month and ever more crucial are
the yearlong doings. That is how necessary and critical rthe budget
offi cer is. If he is not careful enough he can even shoulder the
blame of a companys poor undertaking. But budget offi cers,
know-ing their roles are trained more than enough to ccope with the
demands of their works and their bosses.
The budget offi cer is the logical choice and a key par-ticipant
in any economic endeavor such as those point-ed for development..
He is backed up by a fi nancial and conditioned training and
experience in common budget matters and must not have a vested a
vested interest as a proponent of any particular development plan
or proj-ect. This, in effect, is telling us that a budget offi cer
is a very objective person and his position is one of trust. He is
someone who has the capability to weigh things whether they need to
be given rooms for inclusion in any program or not. He is never
subjective in his decision so that his accountability cannot be
He is burdened by the responsibilities among which are creating

individual development properly, reporting development agreements,
monitoring compliance of on-going development agreement and
facilitating the devel-opment and ongoing economic development
Addendum to his bigger tasks and responsibilities are : he must
justify means of estimating economic and fi scal impact of a plan
or strategy before they are imple-mented. He assesses fi nancial
and economic impact of proposed plan, participate in the
development of various fi nancial incentive tool , identify the
general fi nancial cost and fi nancial impact and risk of using the
capacity of the tool used, coordinating internal analysis of
development programs and assisting in creating an economic
develop-ment plan or strategy.
It cannot be said that the job of aa budget offi cer is easy but
with a budget offi cer armed with the proper cre-dentials and a
full knowledge of the responsibilities of his position, the agency
where he serves in that capacity can say that the agency cannot go
wrong and neither will the programs planned by the agency.
In the education sector with many projects and pro-grammed

orga-nization of a Provincial Taskforce on Coconut Scale insect
(COCOLISAP) , in cooperation with the Pro-vincial Government of

reading very much, you can tell that with the number of books in my

in our life to which some people dont find it convincing. But it is
true! If not for reading, we cannot SPEAK INTEL-LIGENTLY, THINK and
