March 16, 2018: *** DA Sec. Manny Pinol on his visit here yesterday assured the Boholanos that the province's first ever huge dairy program could never fail and its dairy project will push through. However, due to the presence of Food and Mouth Disease in Brazil's Gerolando breed, Bohol will instead import a similar breed from Mexico. Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO) Chief Anthony Damalerio appealed to all mayors in Bohol who attended a daylong crash course on emergency response to be at the forefront of emergency response operations during calamities and preemptive activities for imminent disasters.

Braaping* to Alicia's tops not for the faint-hearted

The Farm, Cambaol Alicia, Bohol, February 11 (PIA)--If one knows the essential features of a trail bike, one would have second thoughts with this one assignment.

That night, the only available ride was a stock Kawasaki KMX 125, stripped to the bare and now converted into a lightweight dirt bike.

Driven by extreme adventure riders with nerves of steel and guts as rigid as the bike's extended front forks, the extreme motor bikes of Bohol East Trail Bikers are stock 125 dirt bikes.

Under the engine head however is a different story.

The pistons are oversized and the chassis is lifted higher, fitted with dirt wheels that sport huge spikes which assure the riders to get them to peak the notoriously steep climbs of Binabaje.

For trails riders here where crashes are as ordinary as skipping over to the dismount, the bike's stock headlights often do not survive. They are useless anyway for day trails, and these bikes seldom come out the streets.
