Baler was spared from the typhoon. Everyhing is ok. Road is passable. Other places were greatly devastated though. Aurora have received lots of help when we suffered the same fate a few years ago. Let’s return the favor. Please help the victims of typhoon Ondoy in any way you can.
To all 3 batangbaler readers who uses the @batangbaler.net email address, the service is working again. You can receive emails in your mailbox again. The mail settings was changed when the website was transfered to a different server. I forgot to reconfigure it. Sorry for that.

Apologies for not updating this blog. I’m in the thick of things. Next week will be more regular.
Here’s a couple of Aurora news swirling in the internets:
from inquirer.net: 3 Years After Abduction: Missing broadcasterâ€™s kin still in dark.
The family of broadcaster and environmental activist and radio broadcaster Joey Estriber remain in the dark three years after four armed men, believed to be soldiers, abducted him in Baler, Aurora, in 2006.
from manila bulletin: Aurora townsfolk oppose proposed sanitary landfill. by Ariel AvendaÃ±o
A proposed sanitary landfill in this town has sparked a controversy as residents claimed the facility would pollute a nearby creek being used as source of potable water.
The residents said that the six-hectare site of the proposed municipal sanitary landfill in Barangay Caragsacan could pollute the Amit Creek and pose threat to the health of residents of three adjacent barangays which are Davil-davilan, Poblacion, and Aplaya.
The website has been going off and on these last few days. Mostly it displays a database error at night (Philippine time) and would only be online at around 10 am the next day. I contacted the hosting company and they say its normal. Maybe normal to them but not for me.
So, in the interest of public service and to avoid disappointment by the BB addicts (all 3 of them), I requested a transfer to a new hosting plan with zero downtime architecture (whatever that means). So expect more downtime in the coming days as the site migrates. Lets hope things will come back to “above normal” in time for the Aurora Day celebration. Cheers brotha!
Para sa mga mabilisang oron, pagbati at kung anu-anu pa, muling ibinabalik ang:
