ILOILO IS celebrating the 156th birth anniversary of Graciano Lopez Jaena today, December 18.

Graciano Lopez Jaena Foundation Inc. will lead the wreath-laying ceremony at the statue of the Ilonggo hero at Plaza Jaro in Iloilo City.

Lopez Jeana is the Ilonggo journalist who held the distinction as the first editor of La Solidaridad, the newspaper founded by national hero Jose Rizal while in exile in Spain. It was part of the Reform Movement that would lead to the 1898 Revolution and end more than 300 years of Spanish colonization.

The highlight of this year’s Graciano Lopez Jaena Day is the presentation of winners of the 2012 Dr. Graciano Lopez Jaena Poetry Contest.

Graciano Lopez Jaena Day is a public holiday in the city and province of Iloilo by virtue of Republic Act 6155 enacted on November 9, 1970.

I WROTE last week (Aug 27) that one should not ignore mail either in a letter or in the internet. To ignore one’s mail is to invite embarrassment for one’s self and anger from the sender. Ignoring the letter can create unsavory reputation and engender contempt. In love, the consequences would be terrible.

THERE IS no substitute for water. “We drink it. We generate electricity with it. We soak our crops with it.” Every man, woman and child need almost four liters of water daily. Rice and staples siphon 500 times as much.
