The Provincial Government of La Union is ready to distribute fingerlings to fishponds owners of La Union who were affected by drought.

During the Fishery Implementers Meeting held at Lomboy’s Farm, Bagbag, Bauang, La Union on April 15, 2014 Provincial Agriculturist Imelda J. Sannadan relayed Gov. Manuel C. Ortega’s commitment to fishpond operators that they will be assisted by the government.

The officers and members of Fisher folks Association and Fisheries Aquatic Resources Management Council (FARMC) in 19 municipalities and the San Fernando City noticed that the drought experienced by the entire country at present is a natural phenomenon so that amidst of the earnest efforts conducted by the LGUs to dredge the passage of water from the sea or river going to fishponds, sand and mud erode down the passageway hindering the flow of water. Fisher folks requested Local Government Units (LGUs) and National Government Agencies for an alternative livelihood during the dry season.

The La Union Police Provincial Office (LUPPO) led by PSSUPT Ramon L. Rafael, welcomed the setting-up and display of the La Union Roving Photo Gallery of the Provincial Government of La Union (PGLU) led by Gov. Manuel C. Ortega last April 14 at the LUPPO Grandstand as an effective tool in forging closer ties between the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the community.

Containing development pictures of PGLU and its partners including the PNP, the gallery aims to foster stronger ties for a more effective and efficient public service especially in peace and order. It also aims to familiarize the men and women of LUPPO to their PGLU counterparts and officials for a more harmonious relationship. Located at the Grandstand of the LUPPO Grounds at Camp Diego Silang, visitors can easily see the gallery with convenience.

Police Senior Superintendent Rafael said that the presence of the La Union Roving Phioto Gallery will inspire the LUPPO all the more to sustain the pride of the Province as one of the most peaceful provinces in the country. Rafael also instructed PCINSP Mona Liza L. Asis, Chief of the LUPPO Police Community Relations (PCR) to invite all LUPPO personnel, guests and units located inside the Camp Diego Silang, to see the gallery which will be on display until the end of the Lenten Season.
