Goodbye & thank you, Dolphy!
Sumasaya ang family ‘pag tulung-tulong all the way.
Problema ay may remedy kapag may konting comedy
At kahit na tumitindi ang hirap ng buhay, pare,
kung tayo ay may unity, ang imposible ay pwede.

Home along the riles, home along the riles
Ito ang aming home sweet home (choo-choooo!)
Umuuga, lumilindol! Kumapit ka, kumapit ka
kung ayaw mong magkabukol!

Pero aming matitiis,
Kami ay hindi aalis,
Dahil ang home along, dahil ang home along,
home along the riles ang the best!

Sumasarap ang pagkain kahit na ulam ay bitin
Basta’t sa iyong paghahain, ‘wag kalimutan ang lambing
Kung minsan ay nagtatampo, minsan ay nababato,
Pitu-pito, walu-walo, ayos na ang butu-buto!
Home along the riles, home along the riles
Ito ang aming home sweet home (choo-choooo!)
Umuuga, lumilindol! Kumapit ka, kumapit ka
kung ayaw mong magkabukol!
I grew up watching Home Along Da Riles, laughing to the antics of Kevin Cosme and his family. The sitcom brings me back to a lot of memories… those were the good ‘ol days.
As soon as the news about Dolphy’s death broke on social networks, fans mourn his July 10th passing. The whole nation extended their sympathy to the Quizon family and shared how Dolphy (Rodolfo Vera Quizon in real life) touched their lives.
According to GMA News, at Eskina sa Caingget, Tagbilaran City, a picture of Dolphy was set where some fans could offer flowers and candles for Dolphy. There’s a personal message like: “We love you Mang Dolphy!”
The death of Dolphy sent shock waves among her lions of fans including Anita Dacaldacal of Booy District, Tagbilaran City, who owns a sari-sari store. As her tribute to the Comedy King, Anita displayed a picture of Dolphy in her sari-sari store where buyers could see it.
"I am deeply saddened at the passing of Dolphy. Thank you for the laughter," shares Anita.
At Booy South Elem. School, guard Buyot Ayeng and pupils had stickers bearing the face of Dolphy. They put the stickers on their shirts when they went to school Wednesday morning.
In June 2003, Dolphy visited Bohol for his Home Along Da Riles sitcom on ABS-CBN (the Bohol episode was shown in July 2003- LPU).  Dolphy and his co-stars Nova VillaVandolf and Smokey Manoloto were billeted at the posh Bohol Beach Club (BCC).
When they had to shoot some scenes at the Loboc  River and Sevilla hanging bridge, the management of BBC asked Tessie Labunog-Sumampong, who at that time managed the Loboc Riverview floating restaurant (she owns now the Loboc Riverwatch), to personally accompany Dolphy.
“He's approachable. He’s very nice ika-estorya," says Tessie.  
Tessie also shared that Dolphy appreciated the beauty of Bohol. His visit to Bohol was also timely to celebrate his birthday.
“Dolphy told me na ‘gustong-gusto ko ang Bohol dahil friendly at accommodating ang mga tao. Fresh air din dito unlike sa Manila’,” recalls Tessie.
"They’re sad and they need their time," says Tessie, referring to Dolphy's family. "We're sad too. Dolphy touched so many people and we were blessed that he shared his gift with us. Makawala og problema si Dolphy."
Twelve (12) candidates will compete for the Miss Bohol Sandugo title on July 20 at the Bohol Cultural Center.
The candidate from Pundok Jagnaanon Idy Cagas is an early frontrunner, a big favorite for the title especially because of her impressive pageant portfolio.
Idy Cagas was Miss Jagna 2008. She also won Miss CVRAA 2006, Miss USJR-Caritas 2011 and Miss Lapu-Lapu 2009 second runner-up. She was one of ICM’s Circle of Ten Teen Quest grand questor in 2005. A consistent honor student in elementary and high school, she won first place in the provincial GSPTuklas ng Talino oration contest in 2005. In 2009, she joined Miss Bohol International although she was an early favorite, she wasn’t able to make it to the top 5. However, she was declared best in gown.

Will Idy join the Miss Bohol Honor Roll?
Other familiar candidate is Miss Bohol Island State University (BISU) Jhonasel Celis who is Miss SCUAA 2011, Miss Regional SCUAA first runner-up 2011 (Miss SCUAA 2011 was the country’s representative to the coming Miss University World in Seoul, South Korea) and Miss Inabanga 2012.
The Anyag Committee decided to send Mariecris Evardo for this year’s search. Will Mariecris will be the third Anyag to win MBS (after Amir Sol in 2010 andFarrah Mian Abarquez in 2011)?
Tubigon’s culture and the arts czar Dennis Walton Balbero says on Mariecris: “She is confident and in the right age to join a beauty pageant. We askedClarice Elaine RadocAnyag 2008 to represent the town in this year’s Miss Bohol Sandugo but she refused because of her busy schedule as a third year MedTech student at Velez and a dean’s lister. We also approached Lori Geisha CabreraAnyag 2010, she’s also busy studying in Cebu. She told the committee that Anyag 2012 Mariecris Evardo is more mature than her and she needs to prepare more of ever she will join Miss Bohol Sandugo. So, we decided Mariecris which we believe she can make it this year.”
Originally, there were 15 candidates for MBS 2012 however, the committee “dropped” Miss Sevilla, Alicia and Bien Unido for their ‘tardiness’. “They were always late attending practices and they had many absences,” says VRS.
On the other hand, Mary Ebone Calimbayan Cimafranca, Miss Tagbilaran 2012 and Miss Bohol International 2012, didn’t join this year’s search.
“The reasons why she didn’t join Miss Bohol Sandugo are: first, she won Miss Bohol International. Second, her sister, Elaine Cimafranca, was supposedly the official representative of Dauis for MBS and we didn’t want them to compete against each other; and third, Ebone prioritizes her studies in Manila,” explains fashion icon EJ Relampagos, Yvonne’s manager.
Miss Bohol Sandugo 2012 official candidates 
Other  candidates for Miss Bohol Sandugo 2012 are Seinee Vi Mula (Miss Clarin),  Catherine Romero (Miss JB Rock Construction), Gladys Sinconiegue(Miss Katipunan Agri-Machinery), Grace Sansen Mae Abong (Miss Biasong Loon), Jasna Yen Torreon (Miss Buenavista), Jerica Aiko Pacot (Miss JCAD),Lavella Arausa (Miss Bilar), Ma. Stephany Galia (Miss Duero) and Marie Andrea Tocmo (Miss Corella).
“The good thing is there is no recycled beauty,” says VRS. Recycled beauties are beauty aspirants who are trying and trying again…until they go beyond the maximum age requirement (usually 23 for Miss Bohol Sandugo).
Just like many of us who want to bring home the millions at stake in the lotto so we keep on betting and betting, fans worldwide are now busy supporting their candidates on Miss Bohol Sandugo (Non-Profit Organization) and Miss Bohol Sandugo Beauty Pageant fanpages on Facebook.
Miss Bohol Sadugo, the province’s oldest beauty pageant, will celebrate its 60th year in 2016.
(Tickets to the Miss Bohol Sandugo 2012 coronation night are priced at P500, P400, P300, P200 and P100 for General Admission. For inquiries, visit the City Tourism Office at the City Hall.)
