“Ang hindi marunong lumingon sa pinanggalingan ay hindi makararating sa kanyang paroroonan”, a word of wisdom by Dr. Jose Rizal and an introductory statement of Dr. Geoffrey S. Tilan, Provincial Administrator and the Guest of Honor and Speaker during the first Monday Flag Raising Ceremony of PGLU on February 1, 2010 at the Provincial Capitol Grounds.

With this month’s focus on Indigenous People, Food Security, National Health Insurance Program and Love Month, Dr. Tilan shared his views on the importance of learning from mistakes in the past and moving on; of knowing how to appreciate and give recognition to every individual’s effort and helping them discover their potentials so that in gratitude, they may be able to contribute more on the development and implementation of the programs of the province. The Provincial Administrator specifically cited successful programs of Gov. Manuel C. Ortega like the “Medicare Para Sa Mga Masa” in which most of the beneficiaries were Indigenous People. Also mentioned was the “Standardization of Salary Increase for 2010”, giving the PGLU employees an inspiration to open a new beginning, a new hope to win a better future for the province.

Coming back from its first loss against the Coca-Cola Tigers in the 4th Basketball Coaches Association of La Union (BCALU) Basketball Tournament, the Provincial Government of La Union (PGLU) Basketball Team gave Holcim its first taste of loss last January 24 at the Francisco L. Ortega Memorial Sports and Civic Center, City of San Fernando, La Union. Ironically, to date, only Holcim is the only team which gave the bottlers its taste of defeat.

Showing no mercy, Board Member Mannix Ortega’s boys never gave the cement-makers a chance to grab the lead during the whole game. After Coach Max Pulido gave his first five a long-deserved rest however, Holcim finds it self knocking at the door of the Capitol Basketball Team, cutting the lead by five from as much as 31 at 42-73 in the second quarter. Holcim’s Surge continued until the fourth quarter with Garcia, putting up sticky defense which put Atong Cariño and Wings Laureta in foul trouble. After executing his trademark of sharp boards and acrobatic reverse lay-ups, Laureta was sidelined after a technical foul courtesy of the fiery Garcia.
