In its bid to perpetuate the Clean and Green Program launched by the Regional Development Council (RDC) In September 2006, the Provincial Government of La Union (PGLU) led by Gov. Manuel C. Ortega, in collaboration with the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), conducted the 2008 Search for Cleanest and Greenest LGU of La Union.

Aimed to institutionalize a system of providing incentives to the cleanest LGU, a Provincial Search Committee evaluated the LGUs’ policies relative to physical cleanliness and greening programs. The committee validated policies and practices through interviews of various personnel responsible for there implementation. Ocular inspections were also conducted to asses the LGUs’ compliance to their greening and waste management programs.

In recognition of the distinct and significant history of various places in the archipelago, the National Historical Institute (NHI), National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCAA) and City Government of Naga, in cooperation with Naga College Foundation, conducted a Seminar-Workshop on Local History Writing last October 16 and 17 at the Melchor Villanueva Hall, Naga College Foundation, Barangay Liboton, Naga City.

In his message, Prof. Ambeth R. Ocampo, NHI Chairman, stressed that national history should not be mainly concentrated to the local history of Manila. “We should go out of Manila. In 1913, Governor General Francis Burton Harrison ordered the collection and compilation of towns’ respective local history. Damaged by the Second World War, President Diosdado Macapagal in the 1960s ordered the same. Local history, make up national history.”
