Chavit kadagiti intrigero: urayenyo a malpas ti kaso Chiz says Garcia lost right against self incrimination Former military general Carlos Garcia has forfeited all his rights and privileges against self-incrimination and therefore cannot invoke it to evade questions from the Senate blue ribbon probe, Senator Chiz Escudero said. Escudero, chairman of the Senate committee on national defense and security, slammed Garcia’s continuous use of his right against selfincrimination when senators asked him regarding the circumstances surrounding his case. “He cannot and should not be allowed anymore to invoke that privilege since he has already pleaded guilty though to a lesser offense when he entered into a plea bargain

with the Office of the Ombudsman through the Office of the Special Prosecutors,” Escudero said. “By virtue of his guilty plea, he is forced to good to tell all. There is nothing more incriminating than pleading guilty. What self-incrimination is he talking about?” Escudero pointed out. Garcia has forged a deal with prosecutors of the Office of the Ombudsman, pleading guilty to direct bribery and violation of the anti-money laundering law, offenses lesser than the actual plunder and perjury cases filed against him in 2004. The senator expressed disagreement with the plea bargaining deal between Garcia PAGE 6

www.storybites.com/ characterization.htm. Kinunana: “An important component of modern fiction is characterization. Historically, realistic characterization has only intermittently been considered an essential part of good writing; in eras when allegory and didacticism become more important than realism, characterization generally goes out the window.” Saanen a panawen ti didaktismo iti Literatura Ilokana wenno dagiti sinurat a mangaskasaba ta idi pay laeng panawen ni Constante Casabar a nangrugi a nagbaliw.

FEB. 7-13, 2011 SUNDAY FEBRUARY 13, 2011 6th Sunday in Ordinary Time Ps 119:1-2, 4-5, 17-18, 33-34 Blessed are they who follow the law of the Lord! 1st Reading: Sir 15:15-20 If you wish, you can keep the commandments and it is in your power to remain faithful. He has set fire and water before you; you stretch out your hand to whichever you prefer. Life and death are set before man: whichever a man prefers will be given him. How magnificent is the wisdom of the Lord! He is powerful and all-seeing. His eyes are on those who fear him. He knows all the works of man. He has commanded no one to be godless and has given no one permission to sin. 2nd Reading: 1 Cor 2:6-10 Brothers and sisters, “In fact, we do speak of wisdom to the mature in faith, although it is not a wisdom of this world or of its rulers, who are doomed to perish. We teach the mystery and secret plan of divine wisdom, which God destined from the beginning to bring us to Glory. No ruler of this world ever knows this; otherwise they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory. But as Scripture says: Eye has not seen, ear has not heard, nor has it dawned on the mind what God has prepared for those who love him. God has revealed it to us, through his Spirit, because the Spirit probes everything, even the depth of God. Gospel: Mt 5:20-22a, 27-28, 33-34a, 37* Jesus said to his disciples, ...I tell you then, if you are not righteous in a much broader way than the teachers of the Law and the Pharisees, you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven. You have heard that it was said to our people in the past: Do not commit murder; anyone who does kill will have to face trial. But now I tell you: whoever gets angry with a brother or sister will have to face trial. Whoever insults a brother or sister deserves to be brought before the council. Whoever calls a brother or sister “Fool!” deserves to be thrown into the fire of hell. ... You have heard that it was said: Do not commit adultery. But I tell you this: anyone who looks at a woman too lustfully has in fact already committed adultery with her in his heart. ... It was also said: Anyone who divorces his wife, must give her a written notice of divorce. But what I tell you is this: If a man divorces his wife, except in the case of unlawful union, he causes her to commit adultery. And the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery. You have also heard that people were told in the past: Do not break your oath; an oath sworn to the Lord must be kept. But I tell you this: do not take oaths. Do not swear by the heavens, for they are God’s throne, nor by the earth, because it is his footstool, nor by Jerusalem, because it is the city of the great king. Do not even swear by your head, because you cannot make a single hair white or black. Say yes when you mean yes, and say no when you mean no. Anything else you say comes from the devil. Lectio • Whoever obeys the commandments and teaches others to do the same will be great in the kingdom of heaven. Meditatio • God reveals His wisdom and love through the Law. Following and living the commandments manifest how mature we are as Christians. Oratio • We praise God by following His Law faithfully. We pray to be always obedient to His will like Jesus. Actio • Let us find new meaning in living according to the commandments. Let us discover new ways to be faithful to them. (Daily Gospel 2011, Claretian Publications

A joyful heart is the health of the body, but a depressed spirit dries up the bones. - Proverbs 17:22 ANIA TI ISAGUTMO...

Adtoy ngarud dagiti sumagmamano a ballakad iti panagpili iti isagut a sabong ken ay-ayaten: 1) Ti maris ti sagut. Kangrunaan iti amin ti marisna. No daydiay ngamin nakusnaw wenno nagkupas ti marisna, amangan no ipagarup ni love a nagkupasen ti panagayatmo. Namaymayat met laeng a buyaen ti narangrang ngem ti nalusiaw. Iparang ti narangrang ti napigsa, nabileg ken natan-ok a panagayat. 2) Estilo ken disenio. Kasapulan ti estilo ken disenio iti isagutmo. No estilo ken disenio, kayatna a sawen, sika dayta.

Seaman’s wife stretches income via rubber plant investment By JEREMAIAH M. OPINIANO OFW Journalism Consortium PASAY CITY—EARLY evening here in an airconditioned room, Sandra dela Cruz performed what she does every morning far south in her rubber plantation: stretching a hand. But while the 50-year-old spouse of a seaman is used to doing the latter, there was a lifting feeling as she did the former. Who wouldn’t be if, like Dela Cruz, she was the matriarch of this year’s most outstanding Filipino seafaring family, awarded December 6 by the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration. But her mind already stretched to a husband bobbing on a boat on a vast blue sea on-and-off for the past 15 years. Likewise, with rubbery knees with the accolades she received, Dela Cruz said she couldn’t wait to go back to her fourth-class hometown of Sofronio Espanola (100 kms. south of Puerto Princesa City) in Palawan where her 4-hectare farm awaits the touch of its mistress. Her work on the three-yearold rubber tree farm is the reason for the OWWA recognition, and her basis to say she’s used to stretching her hand. Every morning since 2007, she said she and two caretakers stretch their hands to pour the right amount of fertilizer to the trees, as well as water that matches the light from the Palawan sun. Those trees must get the right balance of water and heat, she explained. Sandra said she will continue this daily routine until the year

The Dela Cruz family, led by matriarch Sandra (middle) and husband Victor, won this year’s most outstanding OFW family award for seafarers, handed out by the Overseas Workers Welfare (Photo taken from Sandra dela Cruz’s Facebook account) 2012, when the trees start bearing latex. If plans don’t go awry, yields from this high-value commercial crop can see Sandra stretch the investible value of remittances coming from husband Victor. This is because the wife also wishes husband Victor to stay home, on dry land, for good. The 53-year-old electrician is currently deployed under localbased ship principal BW Shipping. “I estimate the prospective income from rubber production will be bigger than his salary as a seaman by the time our third child finishes schooling.” Sandra’s youngest is on his sophomore year in high school while a daughter is taking up nursing in Manila. Two of her older daughters are already working. Elastic SANDRA’S confidence in the

yields offered by rubber planting is based on scientific and financial data. A budded rubber tree not only grows faster than unbudded trees: budded rubber trees can produce latex of 200 grams minimum, and harvesting is every other day. A hundred budded rubber trees can yield 20 kilos of latex, or 300 kilos in a given month — and at just a little above a greenback (P50) per processed latex, a rubber farmer can yield P15,000 every month from a hundred trees. A rubber tree (or Havea brasiliensis, which is of South American origin) even gives farmers latex that lasts up to 35 years. “My children and grandchildren can inherit my business,” Sandra said. The inheritance may be big as Sandra said her family plans

to expand their farm by another 20 has. next year. “Twenty hectares more to plant rubber next year,” she says with glee. “Anyway, I’m used to this.” She’s confident with the plan saying that rubber production is “not too expensive”. Sweat and fertilizers are the equities —cheaper, Sandra says, compared buying budded rubber seedlings at the cost of P4,500 to P5,000 (100 seedlings cost P45 to P50). Seedlings are not much of a problem for the barangay because the mountainous part of Labog had a lot of these. She said she first saw those seedlings —”a truckload”— after visiting the family-owned rice field in 2006. That encounter made dela Cruz decide to plant rubber after 12 years (beginning 1994) of planting various crops — from fruits, paper trees, to mahogany trees, to even oil palm fruits. The latter, according to her, easily perish after harvest. A year later, in 2007, Sandra and Victor bankrolled a seminar organized by the provincial agriculturist that benefited 64 fellow villagers. After the training, the Brgy. Labog Rubber and Ube Planters Association was formed. When the group’s former president died, Sandra, that time the group’s project manager for external affairs, took over. She prodded members to plant 100 budded rubber trees on each of their own nurseries. (To be concluded)

FEB. 7-13, 2011 Republic of the Philippines ENERGY REGULATORY COMMISSION San Miguel Avenue, Pasig City IN THE MATTER OF THE APPLICATION FOR THE APPROVAL OF THE SALE OF VARIOUS SUBTRANSMISSION LINES/ASSETS OF THE NATIONAL TRANSMISSION CORPORATION (TRANSCO) TO ILOCOS SUR ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE, INC. (ISECO), AS COVERED BY AN AMENDED CONTRACT TO SELL ERC CASE NO. 2010-151 RC NATIONAL TRANSMISSION CORPORATION (TRANSCO) AND ILOCOS SUR ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE, INC. (ISECO), Applicants. x--------------------------------x NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

Notice is hereby given that on December 16, 2010, the National Transmission Corporation (TRANSCO) and the Ilocos Sur Electric Cooperative, Inc. (ISECO) filed with the Commission a joint application for approval of the sale of various subtransmission lines/assets of TRANSCO within the franchise area of ISECO as covered by an Amended Contract to Sell. In the said application, TRANSCO and ISECO alleged, among others, that: 1. TRANSCO is a government-owned and controlled corporation duly created and existing by virtue of Republic Act No. 9136 (R.A. 9136), otherwise known as the “Electric Power Industry Reform Act of 2001” (EPIRA) with principal office address at the TransCo Main Building, Quezon Avenue corner BIR Road, Diliman Quezon City; 2. ISECO is an electric distribution utility (DU) organized and existing under the the laws of the Republic of the Philippines, with principal office address at Santiago, Ilocos Sur. 3. Pursuant to Section 8 of the EPIRA, TRANSCO assumed the electrical transmission functions of the National Power Corporation (NPC) and the lattter’s responsibility for the planning, construction and centralized operation and maintenance of its high voltage transmission facilities, including grid interconnections and ancillary services. 4. Section 8 of the EPIRA and Section 8 (e), Rule 6 of its implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) likewise mandate the segregation of the transmission and sub-transmission functions and assets for transparency and disposal, and authorize TRANSCO to negotiate and transfer such subtransmission assets and facilities to qualified DUs and consortia; 5. Pursuant thereto, the Commission promulgated the “Guidelines to the Sale and Transfer of the TRANSCO’s Sub-transmission Assets and the Franchising of Qualified Consortiums” (ERC Guidelines) dated October 17, 2003; 6. Consistent with the ERC Guidelines, TRANSCO adopted its own Guidelines on the Sale of Sub-transmission Assets (TRANSCO Guidelines) which was approved by the TRANSCO Board Resolution No. TC-2003-067 dated November 28, 2003, as further amended by TRANSCO Board Resolution No. TC-2004-009 dated February 17, 2004; 7. In accordance with the afore-stated ERC Guidelines, TRANSCO evaluated that the following assets meet the criteria for the subtransmission assets; (a) San Esteban-Candon 69 kV line; (b) New Bantay-Sto. Domingo; (c) San Esteban-Narvacan Junction (Old 115 kV Line); and (d) San Esteban-Narvacan (Tower 21 Take-off)

10. TRANSCO’s Subtransmission Divestment Department evalued that ISECO is financially capable of purchasing, operating, maintaining and expanding the subject subtransmission assets; 11. ISECO’s financial capability is evidenced further by its Audited Financial Statements for the Year 2003; 12. On February 2, 2009, TRANSCO negotiated and concluded a Lease Purchase Agreement (LPA) with ISECO covering the subject subtranmission assets. 13. Under the terms of the Amended LPA, the total purchase price is TwentyFour Million Four Hundred Nine Thousand Three Hundred Twenty-Nine and 52/ 100 Pesos (PhP24,409,329.52), net of adjustments and deductions. 14.

CHIZ SAYS GARCIA.. (From page 1) and the Office of the Ombudsman, describing it as a futile deal. “What are we really after? Prosecute plunderers as a warning and example to those who have the evil intent, or to recover money? In Garcia’s plea deal, we have settled for much less,” Escudero said. Escudero also said he was wary of the plea agreement since there was a possibility that the latter’s sentence might even be reduced to lesser time because of mitigating circumstances. “Since he pleaded guilty, there is chance that the court will reduce his penalty for bribery from the current medium to maximum term (six to12 years imprisonment) to minimum to medium term (six to eight years imprisonment). There is a disturbing chance

that his penalty is already covered by time served, meaning the years have already been counted since the time he entered jail in 2004,” he explained. Earlier in the hearing, Escudero refused to inhibit from the proceedings despite a request from former armed forces chief Angelo Reyes due to his public statements against him. Aside from Escudero, Reyes, through his lawyer, had requested Senators Miriam Santiago, Jinggoy Estrada and Antonio Trillanes to inhibit in the Senate blue ribbon committee hearing. “I would like to manifest that I’m not inhibiting from this proceeding and hearing for a simple reason that we are not sitting as judges nor performing any quasi-judicial function before this august committee,” the senator explained.#
