KALAMANSIG IN 49 YEARS

Forty nine years ago Kalamansig came into existence through a Presidential Proclamation by late President Carlos P. Garcia.

Since then, this small town started to grow; the hardest way though, to what it is now. The place, really, had nothing tangible to start with, in the first place. It was so isolated from civilization, sort of. There were no roads coming in and out. The only means of transportation then, was a few motor launches that came and went, on an unscheduled basis. Most of the trips were done at night or early dawn, that took around 10 to 12 hours to the nearest destination of Cotabato City. Some passengers who engaged in some small scale business traded with businessmen in the city.

Some students who were taking their college education in the city were also part of those who took these hard and risky trips, let alone the absence of a decent pier where boat could safely dock.

As the years went on, Kalamansig creepingly was rising and was trying to reach at least the level of what it meant to be a municipality, in a sense.

Sometime during the early 1960’s, Kalamansiguenos had a glimpse of perhaps a better future for them and their children when they saw a wharf or “pantalan” was being constructed somewhere along the water seashore of the Kalamansig Bay. They started to grow hope in themselves.

It took some few years before the construction of the wharf was nearing its completion. Though not fully completed, the wharf had somehow someway made the launch loading and embarking a little at ease for the passengers. This perhaps caught the attention of some to come in to Kalamansig and do some business. Although not that big scale. That’s just how it all started!

We’ve experienced some calamities that badly affected many of our people. The conflict between the rebels and the government in the early 70’s displaced many of our brother and sister Muslims in their attempt to escape the horror of being caught between the volumes of fire fight between the two armed groups in battle. Schools were closed and business collapsed for quite some time.

In 1976, Kalamansig was one of those areas greatly and severely affected by intensity 8 killer earthquake followed by a huge tsunami that washed out practically most of the houses and structures along the coastal areas. This catastrophic incident caused heavy damages to crops and properties and left hundreds of families homeless.

Very recently, during the early part of 2007, Brgy.Sangay was attacked, run over and eventually occupied by some armed groups. The barangay was totally abandoned by the residents, leaving behind their homes, crops, working animals and some forms of livelihood.

This incident tremendously affected the economy of the municipality. The local government spent so much money tending to all the needs of the families who evacuated to the poblacion are of the town.

Who would ever think that in a span of some 49 years, kalamansig would look as it is now.

Today, kalamansig can be proud of a pier capable of catering even to international vessels that may dock on its shores. We are not that isolated anymore with the on-going construction but actually passable portion of the national Circumferential Highway from Cotabato City via North and South Upi, Lebak and passing through Kalamansig all the way to general Santos City via Palimbang and Kiamba.

Kalamansiguenos are now living from total darkness for lack of lamps and candles to today’s 24-hour supplies providing the brightest life ever in the history of this town.

Anybody who lives here in kalamansig today can have now the best comfort of talking and speaking to the whole world with the advent of two powerful communication facilities of Smart and Globe. Both companies have each cell site so erected here in town.

Infromation wise, we are not that behind. Sky cables and other satellite cable companies provide the most basic and essential information to practically cover the whole part of Kalamansig, to include the entertainments TV sets show for both the young and old.

What one can best possibly boast for and be proud of is the breathtaking beauty of the Kalamsnig Municipal Plaza fronting the very colourful image of the Municipal Hall Building. Trees of various varieties grow around the whole of the plaza and the municipal hall with hundreds of verdant Cypress trees so planted and fantastically growing within the plaza serving as shade for those who wish to relax at the plaza during the day and a sight at night with sprouting waters from a fountain so constructed right in the heart of the plaza. Across the street from the plaza is a mini forest with growing sky high trees of different variety. The Kalamansig Municipal Hall is surrounded by awesomely painted concrete fence with iron grills and is vividly viewed from the National Highway through the plaza.

Anybody likes to visit us? The first thing that will surely catch your attention is an Old American Tower. White beaches along the shorelines are a beauty for all to see and bewilderment to anybody who comes along.

Come and see us! We are a paradise in a way. We are a town within a forest and we are so green. We can offer you the best here because we are town from where emanates peace and tranquillity reigns.



YOU KNOW WHAT?

One of the greatest gift that God given to humanity is Science. The whole of nature is given to us in abundance for our own satisfaction and happiness. It’s just there. Let’s make use of it for our development and not for our own destruction.

As citizen of this world, let us all together go hand and hand for the protection of nature. Let us love what God has given to us out of his infinite love for us all. The life we live today may not be all the time ours but for those who will come after us. So let us protect it and develop it so that the next generation to come still enjoy the abundance of the earth so readily prepared by the Almighty for his creatures.

Kalamansig, in a sense, with all its abundance of natural resources and awesome sceneries of beaches and waterfalls that glitters, sparkles and scintillate as the sunlight hits it and reflected back  to our own very eyes, is a good gift given to us, Kalamansiguenos.

How many of us really are aware of this? How do we realize how much is given us by God? Everything is their but is hidden from us much less to the world?

With the advent of technology to the world and finally to this small part of it which is Kalamansig, we will not be hidden anymore. The Kalamansig Municipal Website will do the exposure. We will let the whole world know and see that we are existing with all the beautiful things which God made part of our own very being.

Let’s get going! Get up and shout to the world that we are alive! Shout out all the more till we are hidden no more!


ENOUGH FOR EVERYONE’S NEED BUT NOT FOR EVERYBODY’S GREED

A number of calamities are now happening in many parts of the world. Such destruction, they be manmade or natural, have caused a lot of misery among the lives of so many people from all walks of life and from all ages. The number of deaths all over increases daily by the thousands or even by the millions put all together. All sort of diseases are rapidly spreading out victimizing mostly infants and the very old.

This is just a glimpse of the most terrifying predicaments the people of the world today experience. There are a lot more such that when recorded, it would take volumes and volumes of documents to accommodate and contain them all.

We, who maybe are a bit lucky, cannot but just observe this very pitiful sufferings of our fellowmen, watching and listening about them through all forms of media so craftly invented and created by man. One of these instruments of information which is widely and largely utilized by the world is the instrument system through websites.

With the advent of website, just put up and recently launched here in Kalamansig, Sultan Kudarat, we may be able to show a town so intact and abundantly gifted with and showered by tremendously rich natural resources. A shattered Kalamansig is never our dream of seeing in the future. We do not wish to see our future generation growing up in rotten, dying and decaying resources out of once a paradise of some sort.

We have here in Kalamansig an immaculately clean and rich sea where or small scale fishermen depend on for livelihood because they cannot just afford the sky high cost of a modern and largely technical huge scale fishing activities which is, sad to say, a tool for the destruction of the rich sea water due to all kinds of chemicals and waste materials thrown overboard by big fishing vessels poisoning sea life all the way towards the shorelines killing whatever little is left for the benefit of those who feed out of leftover sea food.

We hear a number of systems of fishing and protecting fishing grounds introduced Kalamansig in so many different ways and in so many times but to no avail. How many of these so called livelihood upliftment programs affected the lives of so many fisher folks in the real sense of the word? We know the answer, right?

Let’s come to the rescue! Let Kalamansig be as immaculately beautiful and abundant as it has always been all these years. She is a gift to us from on high. We have the obligation of protecting it from any harm or calamity let alone a man-made one. Let every care and concern flow and the be afforded to this our cute little town. The way anybody would about any material gift given him by a love one.

Kalamansig, in all its grandeur, was given to us in abundance and as such we say, “We have so much to share and there is enough for everyone’s need but not for everybody’s greed!”
