So far, projects have covered a wide variety of subjects: leadership and public speaking, dog training, riflery and fishing.Working off the motto “to make the best better,” Sellers said the students “learn by doing,” which is also the program’s slogan.Students are exposed to subject areas such as science, health, agriculture and citizenship. These projects are “in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult mentors, and [students] are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles,” Sellers said.The program meets once a month. But each project mentor can ask the students to meet more than the allotted time, if he or she thinks it would be beneficial.Sellers said she hopes the program continues to grow because she and her co-manager have many goals for the program.“We would love to see more students getting involved and competing at the County Show. We have a small garden on campus that we would love to expand to a much larger scale,” Sellers said.

‘PRAY FOR ME’ Espenido girds for WV mission Auto Draft

first_imgUnlike Iloilo City, Ozamiz City isjust a component city of Misamis Occidental./PN ILOILO City – Controversial PoliceMajor Jovie Espenido has appealed for prayers as he embarks on a new assignmentin Western Visayas. During his stints in Albuera, Leyte in 2016 and OzamizCity, Misamis Occidental in 2017, police operations resulted to the violentdeath of the mayors there who were suspected narco-politicians. In an interview over Bombo Radyo –Cagayan de Oro City yesterday, Espenido said he received a reassignment orderfrom the Philippine National Police (PNP) headquarters in Camp Crame. He wassad to leave Ozamiz City, he added. Police Lieutenant Colonel Joem Malong,PRO-6 spokesperson, said what they received was a copy of Espenido’s order ofreassignment from Region 10 t Region 6. On the other hand, Bacolod City policedirector, Police Colonel Henry Biñas said Espenido is welcome in his turf. In January this year, PresidentRodrigo Duterte sacked five Bacolod police officers whom he accused ofprotecting drug syndicates. He also took potshots at a city councilor. In Aug. 28, 2017 Espenido wasreassigned by no less than President Rodrigo Duterte from Ozamiz City to IloiloCity that he branded as “most shabulized.” According to Malong, aspecial order on Espenido’s specific assignment in Western Visayas may bereleased anytime soon. BothParojinog and Espinosa were linked by President Duterte to illegal drugs. Espenido’s Western Visayas reassignmentorder was signed by PNP’s Director General Oscar Albayalde; Police MajorGeneral Lyndon Cubos, director for Personnel and Records Management; and PoliceLieutenant Colonel Camilo Pancratius Cascolan, chief of the Directorial Staff. Drug trafficking remains a problem inBacolod City. Recent police operations resulted to the confiscation of shabuworth millions of pesos. “No problem if Espenido is assignedhere. He is a hardworking police officer,” Biñas said. Iloilo City is a highly-urbanizedcity. To head the Iloilo City Police Office, a police officer should have therank of a Police Colonel. OnJuly 30, 2017 Ozamiz City’s Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog and 14 others were killedin a shootout led by Espenido who was serving search warrants at Parojinog’sproperties in barangays Baybay San Roque and Baybay Santa Cruz. Police Lieutenant Colonel Jovie Espenido His new assignment would be BacolodCity, according to Espenido himself, although the Police Regional Office 6(PRO-6), sans official documents, would not confirm as of this writingyesterday the police official’s specific assignment in the region. The reassignment, however, wasrecalled just days after by Duterte himself who said he was giving in to therequests of the residents of Ozamiz City not to transfer Espenido yet.

 She, however, said Espenido was“projected to be assigned to the BCPO (Bacolod City Police Office).” The President, however, did not offerevidence nor cited the sources of his information. InNovember 2016, Espenido was also the police chief of Albuera, Leyte when itsmayor, Rolando Espinosa Sr., was killed in a shootout as police were attemptingto serve a search warrant. It was found out that Espenido, thenwith the rank of Chief Inspector, was not yet qualified to become the directorof a police office; he could only be a chief of a police of station.last_img read more
