This year's Tanjay Fiesta will be a 3-day celebration, this was jointly
announced by Badingding Señeris-Gil and Fern Ann Teves-Cruz,
outgoing and incoming presidents, respectively, of the Tanjay Association,
USA and over-all co-chairpersons.
"Maayo gyud ng tolo ka adlaw," ni-ingon to si Badingding "kay daghang
nga manganhi, unya iif it is only a
one-night affair, mobagul-bul nya sila kay kulang ra
3-day affair will start on Friday, July 24th with a vesperas (fiesta eve)
informal get-together, which will serve as the ice-breaker (as if
Tanjayanons need one). Next day the 25th, the kahulugan, traditional
fiesta date, the Inauguaral Dinner and Ball will be held at
the Spectrum Executive Club in Fullerton.The in-coming new set of officers
for the years 1998-2000 headed by Fern Teves-Cruz as
president and Loreta Cusio-Gorospe and Marlene Zerna-Robertson,
as vice-presidents, will be formally inducted into office. On the
26th, the liwas, there will be a lakeside picnic at the Tri-City
Park in Placentia. (Of course, in between the kumbera, singing, dancing,
hudyaka, katawa, hisgot-hisgots, etc.,
there will be a friendly game of madyong on the
side for the athletic-minded Tanjayanons.)
to grace the celebrations are Tanjayanons coming from New York (headed
charming Menchu Diago), from New Jersey
('Bay Pacing and wife Auring), Florida (Nene and
Linda Seneris), Chicago and environs (Pete
and Linda Orcullo), Toronto and British Columbia
(Elpi and Myrna Culi).
mo, daghan pa kaayong mga out-of-state nga manganhi" added Marianne
Allera-Fayssoux, incoming Treasurer, " apan
wala ra mosugilon.. Others, tungod sa ilang
vacation arrangements, they are still
two by two (translation: nagduha-duha pa).
"Na, kinahanglan gyung magpreparar ta'g ma-ayo ini, kay ma-ulawan unya

THE GOOD AND THE BAD NEWS ABOUT
. . . . (A first-hand account by Falang)
(Bahala na ang atong mga readers ug unsa'y "good
news" ug "bad news," pero kay we are supposed to be neutral sa ATN, here
goes (pero ka-usik jud nga dili namo ma-express ang among "real thoughts"):
THE WINNERS/LOSERS: Very close kaayo
ang mayoral contest between Junior Regalado (backed by the
incumbent mayor, brother Arturo) and Baltazar Salma (backed
by young businesman Nilo Tam). Siging ga-see-saw ang resulta.
Wala mahibal-i ang winner in the "Namfrel Quick-Count" hangtud pila ka
adlaw. (Note: Namfrel was given authorization by Comelec to receive
the sixth copy of the ballot - most of which were hanap na kaayo!
Ma-o na nga na-delayed ang "quick count" kay gipang-confirm usa ang contents
sa sixth copy usa nila gi-ihap.) Salma won by 358 votes.
Regalado won in the Poblacion by as many as 2,000 votes, while Salma won
in the barrios - a reversal of the 1992 voting pattern. Wala ma-klaro
ug mo-protesta ba si Regalado, kay daku-daku man ang labaw ning Salma.
The combined votes of the other mayoral candidates, Dr. Bumanlag, (husband
of Rose Castil) and Atty. Rudy Navarro, ning-labaw sa total ning Salma.
Ang nakada-ug pagka Vice-Mayor si Lawrence Teves, Jr, anak ni former
mayor Tio Ybar Teves. Medyo wala kaayo mo-epec ang kwartahanay kay
bulanting man ang resulta. Both mayor-elect and vice-mayor elect
came from different parties.
