This weeks incident in our beloved (beautiful...sabi ni Lorna Figueroa) Bacon.

A male teacher who check in at Dino's Resort in Tolonggapo with a male companion was stabbed to death. The victim was allegedly a gay and the suspect was his student lover.

Last Tuesday, November 25 at about 7:00PM, a male resident at Cabarbuhan was gunned down to death by alleged members of the NPA.

Illegal logging,tupada, robbery hold up and akyat bahay are rampant and the OIC of Bacon Police has done nothing to solve the problem nor did not give a damn to apprehend the perpetrators.

Lorna Figueroa, Amado MAnduriao and Maning Eco, could you help or initiate actions to make our former town a peaceful place to visit? A city, huh?

Mr. Amado J. Manduriao, Jr.

Notable Bacongnon

The 2006 Achievement award for Religious & Public Service was awarded to a man who came from a family of teachers & selfless volunteers for civic & religious services for the community.
Mr. Amado Manduriao Jr. is the third child of Amado, Sr. and Paula Jarilla-Manduriao. He was born in Manila on May 26, 1933.He finished his elementary studies from Bacon Central School in 1949, high school from Sorsogon Provincial High School and a two-year Normal Course in teaching at Albay Normal School. He graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Bicol State University from where he also took masteral units.

His first assignment was at Calpi, Bulan, Sorsogon then at Bogna, in Bacon where he was designated TIC after only one and a half years. His effort & leadership came to force when he was assigned to a very depressed school, Salvacion Elementary School. He exerted all his effort and used his talents and expertise to develop and improve the school.

After 3 years Mr. Manduriao as well as the people in of Barangay Salvacion reaped the fruits of Mr. Manduriao’s untiring and dedicated service. The school became an entry to various school competitions and earned several awards and commendations, prominent among them, the 1988 Division’s Most Effective School (Non-Central category), with 31 districts competing. On the same year, the school also garnered a plaque for having won 3rd place in the Regional Search for Most Effective School (Non-Central category). Other awards for the school followed. Mr. Manduriao himself won almost 20 awards during his incumbency as head teacher of Salvacion Elementary School. One of these is the Plaque of Commendation by Samahan Nuestra Senora de Salvacion (Bacon) Inc. Manila residents in recognition of his meritorious and dedicated service to the community contributing to the progress of the school. This was in April, 1990. He was promoted as principal when he was transferred to Sugod Elementary School. Once again, under his leadership, the school was tremendously improved both physically and academically and even became a pilot school in the Health Guardian Program.

Upon his retirement from the public schools, he was offered an administrative position in private schools. He became the principal of Sorsogon Chiang Kai Shek School for 3 years and the VIP Learning Center. However, he had to give up his work to in the private schools because he gave priority to his voluntary civic and religious services.

He was installed as Lay Minister of the Holy Eucharist in 1977 and designated Parish Coordinator of the Lay Ministers. He became one of the more sought after member of the Speakers Bureau, being a member of the Parish Pastoral Moderators. In 1999 he was elected Vice-Executive Chairman of the Parish Pastoral Council. During this time the big project was the construction and renovation of the Parish Convent. Presently he is very active with religious services as Chairman of the Commission on service of the PPC, Coordinator of the extra Ordinary Ministers of the Holy Eucharist, parish Coordinator of the Servants of the Divine Mercy and still as member of the Speaker’s Bureau.

He is a favorite of every municipal and city head of our community as committee member or consultant to various community affairs. He is the coordinator & implementor of the Dellosa Clan Foundation USA for indigent children in Bacon East Central School. And the Vice-President of the Senior Citizen’s Association in Poblacion, Bacon.

Soft spoken and unassuming, Amado Manduriao, Jr. has done so much for the community. There are countless people he has counseled, so many projects he has pioneered and helped succeed. He has encouraged civic spirited Bacongnons to donate to worthy community projects. Using his God –given gifts of talent and ability and with his untiring dedication he has contributed so much to Bacon.
