Ang ating uniporme ay ang pagpapahayag natin ng ating pagtanggap sa ating mga kapatid na mga Moro at Katutubo. Iisang bansa lang tayo at dapat natin tanggapin ang ating pagkakaiba sapagkat kung sa lupang ito ay iisa ang mangingibabaw at babaliwalain lang ang mga sari-saring pag-kakaiba na nagaganap at nangyayari sa bawat sulok ng ating bansa ay para na rin binubura natin ang ating pagka Pilipino sapagkat ang ating pagkaka-iba ay kung ano tayo.

The Legal Division, an office which has not had a regular boss since 2013, has been assigned a permanent chief.

In July, Atty. Ma. Lourdes Bantegui-Rodriguez took the reins as head of the Division.

Rodriguez, who originally came from the private sector, has said of her new assignment, “My new work is exciting because it is a new specialized field for me. Considering my age, I no longer aspire for higher positions. I just want to work, serve the government for the next three and a half years.”

Rodriguez took her Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communications and her Law Degree at the Far Eastern University. After passing the Bar, she took to corporate practice and became the corporate secretary of various SEC and PSE listed companies. Although corporate law has been her bread and butter, she has also served in an advisory capacity as a consultant to the executive secretary of the Office of the President, the Senate, and the Public Estates Authority.


eqdrill.jpgWith the apparent increasing incidence of earthquakes, and in anticipation of what has long been termed The Big One, government has been scrambling to lay the groundwork for a proper response to the occurrence of a quake of serious magnitude.

To prepare employees on the proper procedures on safety upon the incidence of such a temblor, the Disaster Preparedness Committee conducted an agency-wide earthquake drill. Held in July, the workforce went through the procedures which should be observed during and after a crippling earthquake.

The simulation saw agency staff calmly leave their offices to mass at certain points in the open grounds. Apparently a success, kudos went out to the Disaster Preparedness Committee.
The Committee itself was constituted in 2012 to address concerns that workers of the agency would not be able to organize themselves in times of calamity.

Co-chaired by Engr. Ma. Teresa Yancha and Joel Amores, the Committee has been the body charged not only with working to stave the effects of a disaster, but to help in relief operations where the calamity concerned affects agency employees.

On July 17, Joel R. Amores of the LRA’s Financial Service, was assigned as Acting Program Manager of the LRA-CARP.

Amores entered the service in 1982 as a Casual Clerk with the then National Land Titles and Deeds Registration Administration. He made his way through to the position of Utility Worker before earning his professional eligibility in 1992. In 2011 he was promoted to Supervising Administrative Officer.

Before being assigned to head the LRA-CARP, he concurrently held the post of Acting Chief Security Officer and assistant chief of the Budget Division.

With almost thirty-five years of government experience under his belt, Amores hopes to optimize the work at the office. “The LRA-CARP needs to be given a shot in the arm for things to be fast-tracked, so that more farmer-beneficiaries will be able to till and live on a piece of land that they call their own,” he said.

The LRA-CARP, the intermediate office between the Land Registration Authority and the Department of Agrarian Reform, is mandated to work for the redistribution of public and private agricultural lands to landless farmers and farmworkers, regardless of any tenurial arrangement.
