Dumalinao is classified as a 3rd class municipality of Zamboanga del Sur. Geographically, it is located 7 degrees 49′ 3″ north and 123 degrees 22′ 12″ east. As of year 2000, the population of Dumalinao is 26,030, distributed to 5,119 households. These facts are according to a census done that year. Dumalinao has a total land area of 11,748 hectares, which makes about 1.8% of the total area of Zamboanga del Sur.

The municipality of Dumalinao came into existence on June 16, 1956 when the president then, President Ramon Magsaysay, passed House Bill No. 5000, which later became Republic Act No. 1593. The person responsible for sponsoring the bill was Congressman Q. Ubay of Zamboanga del Norte  since during that time, Zamboanga del Sur had no congressman; Rep. Roseller T. Lim that time had been elected to the Senate in the 1955 special election. When Dumalinao was finally a municipality, the first appointed municipal mayor was Hon. Martin D. Raluto. Hon. Guillermo Talaid served as his vice mayor. There were four councilors: Hon. Vicente T. Labrado, Hon. Severino Ramas, Hon. Fulgencio Lauglaug, and Eniiego Gemina, although the latter did not serve. Raluto held the position of municipal mayor until his death on June 11, 1969, having been reelected in the succeeding elections.

Although Dumalinao is a coastal town, agriculture is the main economic activity as well as the number one source of livelihood of the people. The municipality is one of the major rice granaries of Zamboanga del Sur. The Municipal Agricultural office records show that 5,998 hectares of Dumalinao’s land area are devoted to agricultural production. The crops planted on these lands include rice, corn, coconut, banana, and root crops. Corn, in particular, is the municipality’s main agricultural crop. An estimated 2,837 hectares of the land are utilized for corn production, with an average of 30 cavans per hectare (or 8.5 million kilos annually). On top of that, Dumalinao’s climate is very conducive to growing corn, so much so that farmers usually get to have two croppings of corn per year. An estimated value of Php 51 million comes from the annual production of corn.

    Thanks for your submission. I would love to say that the very first thing you will need to carry out is find out if you really need credit score improvement. To do that you need to get your hands on a copy of your credit file. That should really not be difficult, since government makes it necessary that you are allowed to obtain one free copy of your own credit report on a yearly basis. You just have to ask the right individuals. You can either check out the website for the Federal Trade Commission as well as contact one of the leading credit agencies specifically.

    Thanks for your posting on the vacation industry. I will also like to add that if you are a senior thinking about traveling, it can be absolutely vital that you buy traveling insurance for elderly people. When traveling, retirees are at greatest risk of experiencing a healthcare emergency. Having the right insurance plan package for the age group can protect your health and give you peace of mind.

    Thanks for your post. One other thing is the fact that individual American states have their own personal laws which affect house owners, which makes it extremely tough for the our lawmakers to come up with a new set of recommendations concerning foreclosures on householders. The problem is that each state features own legislation which may have impact in an unwanted manner on the subject of foreclosure insurance plans.

    I figured out more new stuff on this losing weight issue. Just one issue is a good nutrition is especially vital while dieting. A massive reduction in bad foods, sugary food items, fried foods, sugary foods, pork, and white-colored flour products can be necessary. Keeping wastes bloodsuckers, and harmful toxins may prevent objectives for fat loss. While selected drugs briefly solve the issue, the bad side effects aren’t worth it, and they never provide more than a short-term solution. It can be a known proven fact that 95% of celebrity diets fail. Thank you for sharing your opinions on this site.

    I have observed that online degree is getting well-liked because obtaining your degree online has become a popular alternative for many people. A huge number of people have definitely not had a chance to attend a traditional college or university but seek the improved earning potential and career advancement that a Bachelors Degree gives you. Still others might have a college degree in one discipline but would want to pursue a thing they now possess an interest in.

    One thing is always that one of the most widespread incentives for utilizing your cards is a cash-back and also rebate supply. Generally, you’ll have access to 1-5% back with various buying. Depending on the card, you may get 1% in return on most expenditures, and 5% back again on expenses made in convenience stores, gasoline stations, grocery stores along with ‘member merchants’.
