What is Responsibility?
There are three days in one’s life. The very first one is yesterday.
It is gone and we can’t bring it back no matter what we do. The second
day is today. It is where a person is right now. A person should utilize
today to prepare for the future. Enjoy the present, do your best and
learn from your mistakes. The third day is tomorrow. It is when the
children become adults and would have many things they wished they
have done yesterday and today but the opportunity passed by and
will never return. In order not to have many regrets, do your outmost
today. Today is the most important day in a person’s life. Enjoy and
do your best in your studies for a better future. Nowadays, it goes not
only a matter to graduate, but also to excel in order to have an edge.
Your future lies in your hands, you can either choose the
way leading to sorrow or the way leading to joy. You are given the

Kudos to the Timbulan
Staff By Mary Ellen Domal-in & Kristine Pilingan
If there’s a will, there’s a way.
This adage was proven by the Timbulan staff of school year 2007-2008 by successfully
raising money to turn their innermost desire to make the Timbulan, the school newsletter, into
broadsheet style from a mimeograph style.
This style limited the school for long years to compete during the Division Schools’ Press
Conferences. Thus, last February 2008 this year, the Timbulan staff conducted the Search for Mr.
and Ms. OBNHS to raise the funds they needed.
Through the initiative of the organ adviser, Jennifer Lapinas, and the previous staff, the
search was successfully conducted with eight charming ladies and nine gorgeous gentlemen as
Each contestant was given soliciting papers. It was agreed that whatever amount solicited,
50% will be used by the project while the 50% will be kept by the candidate.
Each officer was also given soliciting papers but didn’t have a share on the solicited money.
Anchoco Dayangadang Jr. and Aileen Wadingan assisted the contestants in all the presentations.
Mr. Allen Wangdali, a sophomore student, and Marcy Batawang, a senior student, were
crowned Mr. & Ms. OBNHS.
It was a tiring but rewarding and fulfilling experience for the staff and organizers, but like
Dora the Explorer, they could say: “Yeah, we did it! We did it. Hurray!” Indeed, they really did it.
A broadsheet Timbulan newsletter is now in circulation.
Kudos to your success!

OBNHS Holds 2008
By Sheena Mae Dolligas & Fay Becyagen

Otucan- Bila National High School held its intramural

last September 16-17 this year at the school campus. The theme
was “Youth Sport Adheres to Sportmanship Code.” The students
were grouped into four units.
It started with a parade led by the color guard and the
drums and lyre band of the school. They were followed by the
different units wearing their assigned uniform color: Unit-1
- Green, Unit-2 - Blue, Unit-3 - Red, and Unit-4 - Black. The
faculty members and the public came last.
The program started immediately after the parade.
Every muse and adonis of each team represented her/his units
in the flag raising. Then, Dexter Panisigan, SSG president, with
the team captains lighted the torch. The cheering competition
followed with a maximum of seven minutes presentation from
each unit. Mher Becyagen, silver medalist in taekwondo in the
