The provincial government lead by Governor Arthur Y. Pingoy, Jr. is encouraging provincial officials, employees and the public to participate in the Earth Hour campaign this Saturday.

The governor issued a memorandum dated March 25, 2011 asking all capitol employees and officials to join by switching off their lights for an hour from 8:30- 9:30 in the evening.


This year’s Earth Hour celebration goes beyond the mere switching off the lights, according to Earth Hour Pilipinas website. With climate change issues becoming more critical, WWF-Philippines is going beyond Earth Hour by launching a year-long climate change information and education campaign for Filipinos to live by Earth Hour’s carbon-friendly principles not for 60-minutes – but for the rest of their lives.

The population officer of the province of South Cotabato spelled out the rationale behind the Reproductive Health (RH) Bill or House Bill 4244 during the press conference in conjunction with the National Women’s Month Celebration held yesterday at the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), Region XII office, Koronadal City.

Population Officer Floyd Maglangit of the South Cotabato Commission on Population (POPCOM) said there are three (3) reasons why the RH Bill is being pushed. The first, he said, is that the government would like the couples to have an informed choice by providing them the comprehensive RH services and information . After this, it is the women and the couples who will decide their family planning preferences, he further said.

The second, Maglangit continued, is the right to health which advances thIs right and improves the health of women, couples and individuals.

The third, he added, is the sustainable human development which fosters development by addressing high fertility and population growth rates, especially among the poor, which exacerbates poverty.

With an RH law, RH programs shall be established to increase awareness and access to appropriate , affordable quality RH services, Maglangit pointed out. Another RH program to be in place, according to the population officer, is to provide accurate education and counseling on the full range of legal and medically-safe FP methods.

Other RH programs are maternal care services and prevention of abortion and management of post-abortion complications, he further said. The male involvement in RH and RH needs of adolescents will be addressed by the RH programs.

The RH Bill also provides programs for the prevention and treatment of diseases of reproductive systems as well as education in information on human sexuality and responsible parenthood in schools and workplaces.

The bill also stipulates that information and services addressing RH needs shall be provided to the poor, senior citizens, women in prostitution, differently-abled persons, women and children in war crisis situations.

Likewise, the bill will ensure adequate and full range of supplies, facilities and equipment. (OTS/PIA 12)

Dare to ride the gravity-defying extreme eco-adventure that is the Seven Falls Zipline experience with inspiring views of Lake Sebu's picturesque waterfalls.

The first leg of the Seven Falls Zipline is 740 meters long and the second leg is 420 meters long . At a height of more than 180 meters, the exciting ride is the highest in South East Asia and passes over four (4) gushing  and even more magnificent waterfalls.

Be awed by the series of waterfalls known as the Seven Falls where "Hikong Bente", the second waterfall in the series of seven proves that pictures can't even begin to describe the imposing grandeur this destination beholds.

Meaning "immeasureable" in the T'boli language,  "Hikong Bente" drops more than 70 dramatic meters  with the water crashing upon the boulders below, creating a  thundering almost other wordly sound.

Aside from the excitement of the Seven Falls zipline,  visitors can also spend their time trekking, bird watching or
enjoying a picnic with the family.

Rates (weekdays/holidays) :

Zipline Rides
Package/Per Person - Php 250.00
