PREMISE: Mr. Jaime Generalao Dianon, a native of Cebu, who now works as a school teacher in Inopacan, spread the news through his XtGem blog account that the municipality of Inopacan was not founded in 1892, but in 1952, a difference spanning 40 years long. He based his findings on a printed copy of Errecion De Pueblos (Towns Establishment ) that he lifted from an old souvenir program. He blew up a photocopy and presented an enlarged image in his blog at XtGem.com account with the English translation that reads: "...This filing began in November 27, 1852 CONTENT Approved (Resolved/Settled) on December 6, 1852."
Years before the Foundation Day was commemorated in the streets of Inopacan, it was Mr. Leonidas Soliva of Inopacan MPDO who went to secure a copy of the certification of the establishment of Inopacan township from the National Archive of the National Historical Commission of the Philippines. He brought home a copy of the document which to his understanding declared 1892 as the founding year of Inopacan.
Now, with the scrutiny and some corroborating findings from other sources which Mr. Dianon faithfully believes would support his discovery, the municipal council and the executive committee of Inopacan are now facing doubts on when exactly Inopacan emancipated from Hindang.
