LOILO CITY - For most boxing experts here, the only way for Oscar Larios to upset Manny Pacquiao today July 2 at the Araneta Coliseum is for the Mexican heartthrob to bring a baseball bat when he climbs the ring for Pacquiao’s World Boxing Council (WBC) international superfeatherweight title. ”Larios is not anymore in the class of Pacquiao,” volunteered Mario “Marlon” Lumacad, Jr., 51, manager of Johnny Elorde Boxing fitness center here. “At 29, he is on

the way down and Pacquiao will knock him out in seven rounds.” Lumacad, son of professional boxing trainer Mario, Turn to page 14

The purpose of having a widescreen that is already set up inside the sports complex to give joy and excitement to our local Pacquiao avid fans. “It is our joy to see the awaited fight between Pacquiao and Larios. We wanted to excite avid fans of Pacquiao from the beginning of their fight up till the end, and to support and monitor altogether our local boxers playing in the Wild Card. Glenda Descuatan asked Skycable and was able to talk with the Solar Sports to have a live coverage of the fight here in the City. Not one Filipino has a glimpse of how the great Mexican boxer had prepared himself for the Mano a Mano. Larios is a two-

time world-champion. When Oscar Larios arrived in the Philippines, his coach, Rafael Mendoza said that “Larios came here to beat Pacquiao.” He also said that he doesn’t care about the odds, which placed Pacquiao as the overwhelming favorite. However, let’s hear what Pacquiao’s mentor has to say. According to Freddie Roach, the fight will be over in six rounds or less at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City on July 2. Despite still being over the desired 130-lb limit, Pacquiao’s handlers are confident that he will make the weight when it’s time to tip the scales.

ANILA, July 1 (PNA) - Oscar Larios, the pride of Mexico, who will challenge Filipino ring icon Manny Pacquiao for the WBC international super-featherweight title, is in high spirits today. Larios leads a five-man Mexican boxers who will square off against the best Filipino in the much-awaited Mano-a-Mano Pilipinas contra Mexico showdown today Sunday, July 2 at the Araneta Coliseum. “Oscar has trained so hard at the Teiken gym in Tokyo. We don’t worry our-

selves with the odds. We would rather continue preparing for the July 2 fight,” said Mexican promoter Rafael Mendoza, who arrived incognito Thursday, to scout for training gym and running ground where Larios can continue his preparation for the fight. Turn to page 13

Court gives life to drug pusher; NGO experts cite very bad city traffic acquits 3 others T It’s two in, three out.

I

n the last week of June, the Drug Court presided by Judge Cresencio Tan Jr, convicted a drug pusher for life in jail; a possessor of shabu for 14 years, even as the same Court also acquitted three other pushers and possessor of illegal drugs due to failures of law enforcers to prove guilt beyond reasonable doubt. THREE ACQUITTALS. In the case of Reynaldo Catubay for illegal possession of shabu, he was acquitted because he was not completely told of his constitutional rights like: to be provided with counsel if he can-

not afford to have one; the police testimonies of PO3 Balde and PO2 Niñal do not show where the seized .07grams of shabu were made thus posed doubt whether the ones presented Turn to page 13

Impressed by the city’s so-called intellectual community, during an experts’ meeting on sustainable development held at Silliman University, they also commented about their impressions of the city and people. They said that foremost in their observation is a very bad traffic of over-proliferation of tricycles plying very narrow city roads.

HOW MEDIA SEES IT, AND NOT OTHERS

BY ELY P. DEJARESCO

Gov’t accounting depts. should be privatized The bottom line of our country’s problem is economics. It is as good as fact to say that 40% of government or peoples’ money go to corruption. I am conservative in my figures. Therefore, to hit the nail on the head, let the private sector ,a reputable and respectable NGO handle the accounting departments of government departments that are the so-called flagship of corruption, to start with. To me this is the last hope of curbing corruption in public corporations. Short of this, corruption in government can never be eradicated. Hopeless. Miracles. Change of Heart. Yes. But that is no longer man’s doing but by God’s grace. Man alone cannot make himself righteous. Remember, he bears with him the original sin. But we are talking here about human possibilities. I had the opportunity to host in a radio interview over ENERGY FM, the so-called “four experts” in the Sustainability Watch, who belong to a network of NGOs monitoring the Philippine government’s efforts to achieve the Millenium Development Goals. The movement is initiated by the Danish ’92 group. (foto below) The foursome were “ Elizabeth Roxas, executive director of Civil Society Counterpart Council; with Ramon Fernan III, Roger Birosel, of the office of the President; Isagani Serrano, Sr. vice president Philippine Reconstruction Movement; and three other foreigners Kim Williams, of Capetown Africa; Marion Akkiteng, of

Nepal; and Ramon Leatemia of Indonesia. They presided over the experts’ meeting on sustainable development management, hosted by Silliman University last June 27. They dropped by for the interview before they left for Manila. (see related story on page l) Surprisingly, they zeroed in on the assumption and findings that the country is poor because of poor leadership. Ergo, change the leader, and improve the country’s lot? But digging deeper into their studies, it was also found out that valuable results of studies made are not understood and well communicated to the people, therefore, their findings remain within the confines of classrooms and research diskettes and flash drives. There is generally a problem of communications. In one problem area like forest conservation, the study concluded that the people and local leaders will cooperate and respond positively if they “have a better understanding of the values and importance of forest and biodiversity conservation.” The disaster worsens when national and local governments are not effectively using mass media to disseminate and explain the values of such studies. Thus, only a handful of people become “experts” who cannot also change or improve the scenario. Back to square one. RANK THE PAST PRESIDENTS. Surprisingly, although they criticized the present government leadership, when I asked them to rank the last four presidents as to their effectiveness, integrity, honesty, and credibility, surprisingly none of them could rank our last four presidents. How come they are judgemental on the incumbent leadership when they could not even compare the four past presidents starting from Marcos, Aquino, Ramos, Estrada and now Arroyo. If not then let me. Among the last four other presidents, at no time has the air been more free for people to speak up their minds. If they did, not just one but two , of the last four presidents could have been worse than the incumbent. But the air then, during their time was not as free as today. That is why we have so many protests, thanks to an over-restored democracy. So this is how the “free-ist” nation of Asia looks, smells, and acts.

Countryside Renewal: Tomorrow’s TOURISM

GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTING. If there is any doable act at this time, it is the passage of a law requiring notoriously corrupt government agencies notably DPWH, Dep Ed, Customs, BIR, as is often mentioned even by our legislators to have their accounting departments , handled by contract, with a reliable private accounting firm.

SCHEDULE OF TRIPS AND RA TES EFFECTIVE APRIL 01, 2006 RATES

What we mean is – If only accounting firms like the SGV and their likes , are contracted by government to handle the accounting departments of known corrupt government agencies, one year is long enough for corruption to slow down to extinction. Why? Because when a pirvate firm is hired to handle the budget and disbursements of sensitive government agencies, the firm has to deliver an honest day’s work, otherwise, they will be changed with another firm to handle the job next year. Sadly you cannot do this with the government bureaucracy. Accounting jobs have to be handled by the citizens-accredited NGOs since private firms who are contracted by government handle their jobs with professionalism, and strict sense of values and principles, no hanky panky. CLEANUP DONE If this is done, one year is long enough for expert-NGOs who, when contracting the job, will strive to clean up government coffers and records of the tentacles of corruption since the private firm contracted for the job will do its best to deliver their performance objectives.

Master planned by CARLOS & ANTIQUE ARCHITECTS, Midtown Beach Resort in Guihulngan. Oriental Negros eyes the creation of a compact resort offering exotic experience. Here, the Architects have designed a playful holiday village and a pedestrian haven of wooden boardwalks. For inquiries, one may email at carlos_antique_arch@yahoo.com.

A

s less developed countryside emerge within the growing ru ral property boom, it is inevitable that waterfront lifestyle should be Oriental Negros’ obsession, not surprisingly as the beach gives the most perfect setting that a countryside could want. Blessed with beautiful beaches and scenery, Oriental Negros is prime for hotel and resort development. This resort-hotel industry is a good indicator of tourism’s growth. Midtown Beach resort (see photo as visualized by CARLOS & ANTIQUE ARCHITECTS) could very well play that role. It is an 8,000 square meter tourism resort that will be redeveloped off the coast of Tinayunan Beach in Guihulngan, Oriental Negros. The existing resort will be retrofitted to delicately thread through natural contours and vegetation. The resort’s facilities will be a 15room hotel, 27-car parking slots, reception hall, restau-

rant, café, general store, conference and seminar rooms, tennis court, badminton court, swimming pool, kid’s playground, wedding gazebo, single-detached cottages, wooden boardwalk, and a causeway. The architectural expression will be “Filipino vernacular” using roof shingles, saw-texture and stained timber in various beach and earthly color. Midtown Beach is a resort development that will

attempt to go beyond basic commercial concerns and to provide for a notion of retreat and relaxation in a vernacular sense.

If properly implemented, the tricycle industry in Dumaguete City would be contributing P18.5-million in VAT fuel taxes to the government each year.

FR. TONY PERNIA, SVD Superior General (Rome-based) faith dialogues. Pernia’s “prophetic dialogue” covering the marginalized people in society to include even prostitutes and other diverse faith seekers is vintage Fr. Tony. As a growing leader, he had identified with the poor farmer’s cause during the despotic rule of Ferdinand Marcos through his active role in the Federation of Free Framers and other so-

cial apostolate for the poor. Though for active non-violence, the other SVD priests like Fr. Conrado Balweg and Fr. Edicio de la Torre took the more radical path in the implementation of the Theology of Liberation. Many of the SVD priests, brothers and seminarians during the turbulent 70s took to the streets – many of them – graduates of the First Quarter Storm. They knew as much of Marxism, Leninism, Mao Tse Tung, Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Praxis and liberation theology as Latin, biology, religion and geometry. This preferential treatment for the poor and oppressed has been core to Fr. Tony’s reflection of his own priesthood, a servantleader of the Man from Galilee. His brand of leadership had moved the SVD to move membership in the congregation to positive growth through the years where the

top ten others showed negative growth rates. Those who know Fr. Tony intently summarizes his phenomenal rise in the SVD ranks as a combination of intellectual superiority and warm per-

sonality – a rare gem in the field of intense diversity of characters with different versions of discernment of issues. Besides mastering at least seven languages, Fr. Tony is known Turn to page 5

High Court sends out strong message of judicial independence

S

ENDING OUT A strong message of judicial independence, the Supreme Court has struck down as unconstitutional the Arroyo government’s Calibrated Preemptive Response (CPR) policy and certain provisions of EO 464 and PP 1017. may be influenced by Malacañang in its deThe SC rulings arguably have allayed cision-making. Twelve or three-fourths of earlier apprehensions by critics that the SC, the 15 sitting magistrates, including Chief under Chief Justice Artemio V. Panganiban, Justice Panganiban, are appointees of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. “The Supreme Court led by Chief Justice Panganiban and dominated by appointees of President Arroyo had passed the acid test on judicial independence with the issuance of three decisions challenging the constitutionality of presidential issuances dubbed by many as de facto martial law. Now, undoubtedly, it can be heralded that the High Court is indeed the last bulwark of justice in this country,” said veteran journalist Reynaldo Panaligan of the Manila Bulletin. When he assumed office, Chief Justice Panganiban summed up his vision in two words: liberty and prosperity. He vowed to “safeguard the liberty of our people and to nurture their prosperity, while upholding the rule of law and the independence of the judiciary.” Likewise, he vowed to “uphold at all times the constitutional ideals of competence, integrity, probity and independence,” saying that he would resolve in favor of civil liberties doubts as to the constitutionality of actins of the political branches involving the liberty of the people. The three rulings were among the decisions promulgated by the High Court during this year’s Baguio Summer Sessions, which is arguably one of the most productive in recent years. The SC Justices, as tradition, hold office in Baguio City

during summer. The Court, through Justice Conchita Carpio Morales, unanimously upheld the right of Congress to compel the appearance of executive officials in congressional inquiries in aid of legislation by partially voiding EO 464. However, it declared EO 464 “valid on its fact” insofar as it requires executive officials to secure presidential concurrence before appearing during the question hour. In making a distinction between congressional investigations in aid of legislation and investigation during the “question hour,” the Court said that the former should be untrammeled because it is co-extensive with the power to legislate of Congress. On the other hand, investigations relating to the question hour do not relate to specific legislations but are directed merely to congressional oversight over the implementation of laws. In another unanimous decision penned by Justice Adolfo S. Azcuna, the Court declared as null and void the CPR policy of the Government regarding rallies even as it upheld regulations on the right to rally, including the permit requirement, under the Public Assembly Act of 1985 (BP 880). The Court also gave local governments a deadline of 30 days from finality of its decision within which to establish or designate freedom parks where rallies can be held without a permit, noting the “pathetic and regrettable”

implement to suppress and prevent acts of lawless violence. The Court specifically declared unconstitutional the warrantless arrest of University of the Philippines Prof. Randolf David and Ronald Llamas and the members of the Kilusang Mayo Uno and the National Federation of Labor Unions, and the warrantless search of the Daily Tribune offices in Manila and the seizure of newspaper’s articles for publication and other materials. PP 1017 was issued on Feb. 24 in a move to suppress alleged plans to overthrow the government. It was lifted on March 3. Despite the lifting, the SC decided to rule on the merits of the seven cases challenging its constitutionality because of the transcendental importance of the issues raised.

The Charisma ...

achievers of great note. (“Can you fault me for being too proud, if I am this great?”) – the braggart’s usual punch line. Fellow SVDs swear he is easy to approach, not intimidating, simple, charismatic, cheerful and with boundless energy. Even having reached the pinnacle of success, he acts as if “nothing has changed” and goes on with his mission work with the same relentless dedication, razor-sharp mind and personal charisma that impresses without being forced into one’s consciousness. And he fondly remembers first names, one distinct trait of a born leader of man. The arduous task of carrying Christ’s mission to the four corners of the world is no easy task and can make ordinary mortals wilt under the sheer immensity and complexity of the work. A solid ground of spiritual foundation and moral integrity are imperatives to lead that kind of mission. He has both. As we dishonestly (perhaps) bask in the glory of his achievement, we sincerely congratulate Fr. Tony and his “sterling” leadership in the missionary work in the Lord’s vineyard. Truly we are proud to call him our own – a province-mate as Boholano and a blood relation to the Pernia-Dejaresco family. We can only offer him our prayers for strength and continued guidance from the Holy Spirit as he embraces another six years of dedicated service. This man who if often described as a man “in” this world but not “of” this world – has the best possible combination needed for an apostolate which is desperately needed in a troubled world such as ours. Shalom.

From page 4 to have a sharp scalpel for analytical dissection of issues and has the gift of gab to make complex issues comprehensible to any audience before him. Fr. Tony would not be lost in the labyrinth of sophisticated philosophical debate, because, unlike others, he has an uncanny grasp of reality and an obsession for details. As an intellectual, there were a lot of pygmies around him – astounded by the acute mind and prophetic vision that Fr. Pernia has at his fingertips. More than that, Fr. Tony endeared himself to colleagues and community members alike for his gift of humility, a trait often found absent in Republic of the Philippines Local Civil Registry Office Province: Negros Oriental

compliance by local governments with the requirements under BP 880 for the establishment of freedom parks in every city and municipality. Voting 11-3, the Court, through Justice Angelina Sandoval-Gutierrez, declared unconstitutional provisions in President Arroyo’s PP 1017 that authorized arrests without warrant during rallies, arbitrary cancellation of permits to rally, imposition of standards on media and any form of prior restraint on the press, and takeover of privately owned public utility or business affected with public interest. However, the Court declared constitutional the state of national emergency under PP 1017 and validated the provision in General Order No. 5 that sets the standards which the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police should

NGO experts ... From page 11 mented that the city should now expand to the suburbs so that the present city site will not be over crowded and prone to many consequences. They said that among these are increased criminality. When a city grows, the livelihood opportunities decrease, thus, there are more desperate people who are crime-prone. Second, police expertise is wanting because of poor system of assignments of policemen who are not familiar with the terrain being from other places. Third, they cited the lack of effective communications to the mases in that good programs do not sink into their minds because there is a poor system of communicatons.

They absolutely favor the privatization of the government accounting departments especially of agencies claimed to be flagships of corruption, namely, the DPWH, the DepEd, Customs and BIR.

It was said that the bishops, with the help of some parents, succeeded in convincing the Department of Education to shelve the delicate subject. There, of course, were those who were unhappy with this turn of events. They complained that the bishops did an overkill, their understanding of the issue simplistic. Some form of sex education in schools, they insist, is a must. This has made me wonder whether these people are aware that only recently we complained about the deterioration of our English education in the schools, in spite of heroic efforts to nurture it for many years. Sex education in public schools? Give it a few months before it degenerates into

something really nasty. We’ll be producing students not only with fractured English but also with ballistic sexual appetite. Let’s not be naïve about this. Sex is an extremely delicate subject. It should be handled most prudently, considering its volatile character. Sex education cannot be given in a generic way. It requires person-specific attention. This is because sex education is not about being clever to be safe, about practical, technical knowledge. It is about virtue, about chastity, about love, a love

that involves God and man and woman down to their bodily dimensions. In the recent controversy, everyone has a point. Even the devil can make a point, and at times can score a big point, except for a little lie that spoils the whole thing. He can even appear as an angel of light to pull his grand deception. What strikes me about the reactions as reflected in the press is the haste in the way they were expressed. There was improvisation galore, with ideas whose gestation must not have lasted more than a split second. The position of the Catholic Church on sex education can virtually be seen in the document: “The Truth and Meaning of Human Sexuality: Guidelines for Education within the Family,” issued by the Vatican in 1995. I wonder if that document was consulted before

our seemingly all-knowing commentators open their mouth or start to write. This document certainly was not a result of an improvised effort. A lot of research and consultation went into it. Its suggestions and recommendations just cannot be taken lightly. In that guidebook, everyone is reminded that the task of education is primarily a responsibility of the parents. The schools, the government, etc., only take on a subsidiary, supporting role. The parental duty should not be replaced by them. This is especially so when sex education is concerned. In one point, it says that parents can ask the assistance of schools that should be under their attentive guidance and control, not the other way around. Thus, it says: “It is recommended that parents be aware of their own educational role

and defend and carry out this primary right and duty. “It follows that any educative activity, related to education for love and carried out by persons outside the family, must be subject to the parents’ acceptance of it and must be seen not as a substitute but as a support for their work. “In fact, sex education, which is a basic right and duty of parents, must always be carried out under their attentive guidance whether at home or in educational centers chosen and controlled by them.” (113) To me, the bigger problem we have is how to make the parents more responsible to fulfill the delicate duty of sex education to their children. Actually, more than the government, the Church has the heavier burden in this regard. Thus, the two should work very closely.

I

said earlier that I heard Fosdick speak at the Riverside Church during his once-a-year- preaching. He spoke on the subject “The Danger of Going to Church.” The sermon was very rich

in illustrations from everyday life, but one of the most relevant to our own society is when he said, “Church-going can make people little-minded, bigoted, vindictive, confirming and sharpening their prejudices and fanaticisms.” Fosdick told us that the parable of the Good Samaritan is, in one sense, not a beautiful story. Where did the priest and the Levite come from when they passed on the other side to evade the wounded man? Down from the Church in Jerusalem. It was a Samaritan who probably never went to church who had no prejudices and no vindictiveness and who was not a bigot, who took care of the wounded man! (By the way, recently I heard cardinal Fulton J. Sheen on television smilingly say. “The priest and the Levite passed by on the other side when they saw the man had already been robbed.” It should remind us of cultic “carpet-baggers.”) For the living of these days, as we do enjoy singing in church, listening to the Word preached, praying, listening to the pastor say, “In the name of Christ, your sins are forgiven,” how well are we rid of our vindictiveness,

our sharp prejudices being confirmed by coming to church?

TODAY’S

GOSPEL Mark 5:21-43

T here is no doubt in my mind that Jesus has power over death. He clearly illustrates this with the healing of the small girl and elsewhere in the Gospels. This is the extent of the authority that Jesus has been given by His Father. It is important for us to realize this because we were given a share in that same authority. Let us seek to live holy lives so that this authority and power will be evident in our own lives to the glory of God and the Gospel.

hen Jesus had crossed again {in the boat] to the other side, a large crowd gathered around him, and he stayed close to the sea. One of the synagogue officials, named Jairus, came forward. Seeing him he felt at his feet and pleaded earnestly with him, saying, “My daughter is at the point of death. Please, come lay your hands on her that she may get well and live. He went off with him, and a large crowd followed him and pressed upon him. There was a woman afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years. She had suffered greatly at the hands of many doctors and had spent all that she had. Yet she was not helped but only grew worse. She had heard about Jesus and Turn to page 12

The Ultimate Franchise By OS Hillman

BCBP Info

And He said unto them, How is it that ye sought Me? Wist ye not that I must be about My Father’s business? – Luke 2:49 KJV

E

arth is God’s business. He has set up many franchises (churches) de signed to send His representatives (Body of Christ) into the world t o make known the best product ever given to mankind (Jesus). His branch managers (pastors) have been given the responsibility to teach and support those in the field. God’s goal is to establish a franchise in every nation, state, and city. It is the ultimate business because when you introduce someone to His product (Jesus), you receive a reward from the home office (Heaven). God has promised that His representatives will have all the tools and customer support needed to accomplish their strategic plans. Jesus knew that He was to be about His Father’s business. He knew He was sent to earth not to enjoy the pleasures of lowly man, but to accomplish a task for which He alone was sent. When He had accomplished His mission, He was to entrust this mission to other representatives into whom he poured His life for three years. This field training allowed Jesus to mentor, model, befriend, and demonstrate first hand the model for a successful business to be launched and sustained. God has big plans for His franchise. He wants every human being to partake of His product; however, even God knows that not everyone will. Nevertheless, this does not thwart His efforts in seeking to make it known among His audience. You have been called to be part of the ultimate franchise. How many new recruits have you been responsible for bringing into the franchise lately?

fluvial PROCESSION

BY: REV. FR. ROMAN C. SAGUN. JR.

T

hree weeks ago, June 12-13, there was a big fiesta celebration in Sibulan, Negros Oriental, honor ing Patron Saint Anthony of Padua. With great festivity, pomp and circumstance, the celebration was a classic example of history repeating itself. On July 8, 1907, Nuevo Heraldo, a weekly newspaper of Iloilo, carried an article captioned “La Fiesta de Sibulan,” giving the details of the festive activities. The author was Fray Licinio Ruiz de Sta. Eulalia, who also caused his letter to be printed in a Manila newspaper Libertas on July 9, 1907. As an eyewitness, Fray Licinio related an account that even on the eve of the feast day of St. Anthony of Padua, a great mass of the Catholic faithful from every nook and cranny already began to pour into the town plaza. By late afternoon, they proceeded to the beach, carrying different banners representing their religious organizations. The faithful devotees coming from all walks of life joined the fluvial procession in honor of the Patron

Saint. “The biggest of our surprise was to witness a fluvial parade of many small, yet well-lighted, fishing boats following a profusely decorated bigger one where (the miraculous statue of) St. Anthony was enthroned,” he observed. “Watching the procession was such a huge wave of people and at the top of their voice exclaiming vivas (hail, hail to St. Anthony) with the marching band at the background, while the devotees were on their knees, reciting the mysteries of the Holy Rosary: what a grand spectacle, I repeat, so touching to those with deep religious devotion and sentiments,” he continued to observe. “On the feast day itself, the Church was just so small for such great mass of devotees; the rites were so solemn; the songs for the (Latin)

BRANCH CASHIER • Resident or willing to be assigned in TANJAY • College graduate of any business course • Experience on various aspects of bank operations including cash operations • With experience in supervisory capacity • Not more than 40 years old • Willing to travel extensively and be assigned to different areas • Willing to accept temporary out-of-town assignments • Familiar with MS Windows, Word and Excel • Good leadership skills and willing to develop and train subordinates • Excellent marketing and interpersonal skills • Good oral and written communication skills with proficiency in the local dialect • Focused, honest, committed and able to work with diff. functions • Can work under pressure and willing to work overtime

K

ag. Sagarbarria’s approach in making it “affordable’ for local tour companies to operate seems like a step in the right direction in relation to the issue of expensive accreditation requirements imposed by the DOT. He can either work through the city council or help create productive policies at the Oriental Negros Tourism Governing Board (ONTGB) of which he is a sitting member. But it is not so much as making it “affordable” but more on properly regulating the industry so that operators can deliver the quality required specially by international tourism. If we have too many sub-standard quality tour operators because it is “affordable”, it would, I think, just cause as much damage as when we don’t have enough operators due to the expense. Where we should be concentrating our energies in is in the creation of proper regulatory laws and policies to make operators toe the line observing rules designed to make the industry grow. The ONTGB, FONTA and TAO are crucial players in this desire to develop tourism but unless we learn to use these powerful instruments, we will remain mediocre in our attempt to compete with developed tourist areas. Affordability should be a “non-issue”, for after all tourism IS a Multi-billion dollar industry. We should not lack of capital funds if we play our cards right! Let’s all look at the right direction. Have a nice day!

Sunday ... From page 8 To be living is sublime, yes. But are we in peace and in love with our fellows—as we say in our Communion services? Are our hearts full of resentment and biases? To his New York congregation, Fosdick told of a woman and her two children coming to church on Sunday morning and seeing Blacks in the choir…they stalked out in indigna-

I came back to my apartment with an arm load of books. A little girl who works in a nearby business asked me if she might borrow a book to read. I told her rather than loan her a book, I would take her to Hypermart and let her pick out her own books. I fully expected her to select romance novels or some other escapist entertainment reading. I was shocked to see her pick out huge school books. These massive tomes were on geology, physics and math. It became obvious she was desperately trying to educate herself. The vision of her studying these huge books in a vain attempt to change her fate still moves me.

I am currently putting six people through school. Seven if you count my wife. This is not much; I know others who are doing much more. I know three Americans who are paying the tuition on twenty-three students. They are not the only ones. The city of Dumaguete has a program to educate almost two hundred “street” children. They want to give these children a chance to break the yoke of poverty. In addition to an education the city wants them to get at least one good meal each day. Unless these children are properly nourished they can never reach their full potential. As with most government

for the year 1907 were Fathers Juan Lorenzo and Licinio Ruiz of Siaton; Father Luis Recarte of Bacong; Father Paulino Jimenez of Valencia; Father Nemesio Llorente in Sibulan, Father Pablo Vicente in Amblan; and Francisco Solchaga in Bais.

Fosdick concludes: “Jesus went to the Temple when he was twelve years old. He came out with a great conviction that he was to be about his Father’s business.” The question before me is: what kind of church-goer am I in a time of ferment? What kind of churchgoers are we? If it is going to be a great time to be alive, we will try to live by the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-13):

Feeling the patients’ pain

=================================

verytime I sit inside that familiar waiting room among my cancer peers, I can’t help thinking that we are like sitting on death row, waiting for the pronouncements of our death sentences. Others cry after they know their results, while some stare blankly at the wall, calmly taking down another blow. Mothers hug their sick child, let Him take over, peace came, and whisper all kinds of comfort. Yet then joy inspite of circumothers come out happy, hopeful for stances.

And finally when you are too weak and dying, they will tell you to go home and prepare to die. When you don’t die, they say , maybe you were never ill in the first place.” But I have seen doctors who are exceptionally gifted with compassion and dedication. They chose this profession above their own priorities, like their families and their own health. They are on call twentyfour hours a day. They hurt when their patients hurt. But they have to maintain that level of balance and objectivity to save patients lives. They can’t go emotionally charged all the time. They have greater responsibilities than many of us.

irst things first. In contemporary times, people seek for the betterment of their families, their neighborhood and communities, their nation and the world as a whole. We are enamored with rationalism, legalism, scientism and religion. Here in the Philippines, the present political leadership and their allies are pressing on CHARTER CHANGE with a craving desire and for varied kind of personal reasons but under a deceptive advertisement of betterment of the Filipino Nation. CHA-CHA is more appropriate for CHARACTER CHANGE before anything else. And when I say CHARACTER CHANGE, it is not the superficial transformation where we struggle with much energy as well as physical and spiritual force to subvert the evil one by using our intellect and abilities. This formula of change is more for display than the core of the matter. True enough, there is a fundamental restlessness in the human being. In that restlessness we long for something better, more beautiful, and more whole. Most often however, we have no real idea what that might look like and we merely depend upon the prevailing perception of other people, the majority most especially, even if deep within us we feel uneasy with the majority. This is the evil of democracy. It is a numbers game because the majority makes the rule irrespective of its impropriety, and the minority has to blindly follow. Illustrations of this phenomenon are not difficult to find for one has simply to look at, I hope with disfavor, the Philippine House of Representatives. The election and appointment of officials on the basis of money, influence and political patronage are similar examples. Paradoxically we call this peace and progress, and this is indeed the core of CHARACTER CHANGE. The CHARACTER CHANGE that is genuine begins not from the great abilities of man to suppress the evil one, because for one thing he cannot, but rather in his humble realization of how sinful, unrighteous and underserving he has become before God. Such change is

founded in our further acceptance of the temporary nature of human life such that we settle to live and serve with fulfillment the purposes of God rather than of man. This we will do in whatever station we are in life. Relationship with our Creator, the beginner and finisher of human life, forms the fabric of our human existence. Our CHARACTER is the fruit of that relationship of great intimacy. We are nurtured and cared for during our time of delicate vulnerability by those who brought us into existence. It is the mystery, if not miracle, of life and a sign of God’s grace that it is not only the strength of this relationships that forms us, but also the failure that is ever present. In my particular case, it is the failure of my marriage and the resulting woundedness that led to the emergence of spiritual gifts that surpass all earthly deficiencies. But this is only possible if we are not overcome by anger and bitterness. Thus, woundedness oiled by the soothing effects of forgiveness becomes the seedbed for the growth of the Spirit. Then and only then would CHA(racter)-CHA(nge) become a viable proposition. Sadly, while we continue to recognize the critical importance of

Atty. Joel Cadiogan Obar

meaningful relationship with God, our contemporary culture is “selfcentered” driven by power and wealth. Man has consciously substituted God with something else that does not matter at the end of our earthly life. Thus King Solomon said in the bible story: “So now I hate life because everything done here under the sun is irrational. Everything is meaningless like chasing the wind. I am disgusted that I must leave the fruits of my hardwork to others. And who can tell whether my successors will be wise or foolish? And yet they will control everything I have gained by my skill and hard-work. How MEANINGLESS!” (Ecclesiastes 2:1719). In closing, CHARACTER CHANGE begins with the humble acceptance of our nothingness but proud realization of our worthiness when we SERVE GOD by SERVING OTHERS . So may we ever walk and act with a steady purpose of strengthening our relationship with the Great Architect of the Universe, our ALPHA AND OMEGA. God bless us all.

came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak. She said, “If I but touch his clothes, I shall be cured.” Immediately her flow of blood dried up. She felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction. Jesus, aware at once that power had gone out from him, turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who has touched my clothes?” But his disciples said to him, “You see how the crowd is pressing upon you, and yet you ask, ‘Who touched me?’” And he looked around to see who had done it. The woman, realizing what had happened to her, approached in fear and trembling. She fell down before Jesus and told him the whole truth. He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has saved you. Go in peace and be cured of your affliction.” While he was still speaking, people from the synagogue official’s house arrived and said, “Your daughter has died; why trouble the teacher any longer?” Disregarding the message that was reported, Jesus said to the synagogue official, “Do not be afraid; just have faith.” He did not allow anyone to accompany him inside except Peter, James, and John, the brother of James. When they arrived at the house of the synagogue official, he caught sight of a commotion, people weeping and wailing loudly. So he went in and said to them, “Why this commotion and weeping? The child is not dead but asleep.” And they ridiculed him. Then he put them all out. He took along the child’s father and mother and those who were with him and entered the room where the child was. He took the child by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum,” which means, “Little girl, I say to you, arise!” The girl, a child of twelve, arose immediately and walked around. [At that] they were utterly astounded. He gave strict orders that no one should know this and said that she should be given something to eat.

Court gives ... in court were the same ones that were seized; the prosecution failed to establish the identity of the dangerous drugs and paraphernalia which constitutes the corpus delecti; and the testimonies of government witnesses were tainted with inconsistencies. In the case of PP vs. Julius Gerosano, in the buybust operation, he signed the receipt of the seized .03 grams of shabu done without the assistance of a lawyer nor was any waiver of such right done in writing, prompting Judge Tan to rule thus: “ the police officers’ departure from the constitutionally mandated procedure has tainted the anti drug operation with the vice of unreasonableness, which compels the Court to declare the seized shabu inadmissible as evidence. In the case of PP vs. Ronnie Abubakar, the Court found the testimonies of the NBI clerk and its asset Aledro and Magbago “full of inconsistencies, contradictions and evasions,”in describing the

No testimony also showed that a representative from the Dept of Justice nor an elected public official was present during the conduct of the inventory who both were supposed to sign copies of the same. Judge Tan said :”the conviction of the accused must rest not on the weakness of the defense, but on the strength of the prosecution.” CONVICTIONS.

Rotary, Women’s Group help Talay Rehab

T

he other week I wrote about the Talay Men tal Rehabilitation Center in Talay, Dumaguete City. Every time I visit the Center, I see the handiwork of people who care for the least of our brethren. The Center is almost bare with just the most basic of necessities, the wards and individual cell rooms tell the story of its occupants, past and present, yet every where one sees the help and support of people who care. As you walk into the Center, you see tiled floors and painted walls of the nursing station; done through the help of the Dumaguete Lions Club. This Club has given a lot of support to this Center through the years. The men and women’s wards were personally painted by John Smith, whose work brightened up the otherwise dingy walls. The beds in the wards were donated by Dr. Malou Benemerito, a psychiatrist from Port St. Lucie, Florida. Her husband is Dr. Boy Benemerito, our own Negrense Awardee. The mats and bed sheets now in use were donated by the Sandman family of Michigan. In February last year a team from the Presbyterian Church of Ann Arbor did a week’s work of cleaning and painting of

The daily breakfast for the patients are donations from generous persons. The Nurse Station at the Center was refurbished by the Dumaguete Lions Club

the whole Center kitchen and Dining Hall; They painted the walls, the ceiling and the floor after scrubbing them sparkling clean! They later on set up a one-year program of three meal weekly, praying the Dumaguete City Habitat mothers will cook and serve the meals. The Dumaguete Rotary Club of Dumaguete in a matching grant program with the Rotary Club of Central Reno, Nevada; provided for a one-year program of two meals, vitamins and medicines, and constructed two toilets. The Perpetual Help Church CWL (Catholic Women’s group) and many other unnamed donors gave meals and gifts to the patients on different occasions. Every Friday afternoon except when they are out of town, Rene and Irene Wells and Andrew visit the Center; bringing snacks and praying with the patients. Sundays, Fr. Burton says Mass for the patients, the staff and some residents in the neighborhood join in. I remember Julie’s gifts; aluminum plates and a brand new two burner gas stove; she had sponsored meals and got her mother Aning to restore the toilets and bathrooms in the men and women’s ward. My friends Delia and Yolly sponsored weekly meals for many years; I smile when I remember Teresa bringing the bulbs I asked from her when the Utility Staff told me they needed bulbs to replace the busted bulbs for the buildings. Janki regularly donated plates and snacks and Margie came with her chocolates. I cannot forget the first time my friend Sol set one huge lechon on the Christmas lunch table for the patients. It was almost a spiritual feast in itself to see the patients overwhelmed by the sight of the lechon! Now the Christmas lechon luncheon is her annual gift to the patients. Who can fathom the joy the patients feel when they see the care and support given to them? God’s spirit of love is well and alive even in this place of human suffering.

Iloilo ... From page 1 Sr. said the Larios that Pacquiao will be facing on July 2 is the different from the twotime world champion Larios four years ago. Former Games and Amusement Board (GAB) Commissioner Emmanuel “Nonong” Palabrica, a native of Bingawan, Iloilo, predicted that “Manny will win by knockout in the 8th round because Larios is known as an aggressive boxer and not a defensive boxer.” ”Although he is a tough opponent, Larios will not survive Pacquiao,” said Palabrica, legal counsel of the Pan-Asia Boxing Association (PABA). Roland Magahin, poster parent and manager of former World Boxing Federation (WBF) welterweight ruler William, said Larios will attempt to win on points while Pacquiao will try to finish him off in the early rounds. ”But it will be Pacquiao

who will win by knockout,” said Magahin, regional vice president of the Amateur Boxing Association of the Philippines (ABAP).June Carlo Panela, an aspiring referee and judge, said he saw Pacquiao stopping the Guadalajara dynamo in the third round or fourth round. ”Larios’ very wide stance might also be a factor against him. On the other hand, Larios’ 1-2 combination plus his speed and long reach may initially give Pacman a hard time going in despite (Fred) Roach’s (claim of) having studied Larios’ (bouts in the) tapes,” said Panela. “I won’t be surprised if I again see that ‘Roach Uppercut’ which Pacman beautifully executed against Erik Morales.” Panela warned that Larios’ jaw “might again be broken” as he has not fought quality fighters in the mold of Marco Antonio Barrera and Morales, both knockout victims of Pacquiao. Veteran boxing trainer Alfredo “Pidong” Amistoso, Sr. said in vernacular: “Manny Pacquiao will knockout Larios because the Filipino boxer is

Portugal’s first win in 40 long yrs T P BY MELODY JUNE T. CARINO

ortugal has never drawn a record in the history of FIFA World Cup for the past 40 years, but during their match with Netherlands, their game didn’t go with penalties. Because of fate, Portugal was able to keep on standing on their feet during the battle through 90 contested minutes with Netherlands. The two teams were their match. It was Ronaldo’s aggresboth reduced to nine men in a football game sive attack to Deco which that had frequent made the cross that sent flashpoints. It was a tight alarm bills ringing through game with Netherlands the Dutch reargurd. Pauleta which lost one of their prevented the delivery for star players when Maniche to score following Cristiano Ronaldo was a neat turn away from a on the receiving end of couple of defenders. Costinha’s handball on a couple of tough challenges in the beginning of the stroke of half-time in-

curred a yellow card for the second time, and made the first dismissal of the Portugal. Costinha has played a key role for the national team for many years, and his dismissal made a Portugal hopeless to victory. When Portugal had all to chances to rip the game off, tempers were rising because one card after another was given to Portugal, thus slowing their advances in crippling Netherlands. Fortunately, Khalid Boulahrouz and Deco followed by Costinha went

down through the field which gave way of Giovanni Van Bronckhorst. David Beckham positioned himself up to the stationary ball. Up and over the wall it went and then down, a combination of power and accuracy to find the only corner of the goal that Cristian Mora couldn’t get his fingers to. It was a surprise for the South Americans, considering this FIFA World Cup game with Netherlands a story that made Portugal to seal victories in

two games. Beckham’s first goal for Portugal came at France 98 where a curving set-piece put the ball into the goal of Columbia. Portugal advanced with ease in the second round for the first time in 40 years. Netherlands is hoping to stop the Portuguese on their tracks to set a record in the FIFA World Cup, but history seems to favor the Portuguese, though, as they have won five of the nine clashes with the Dutch, drawing three and losing just one.
