Signing of peace covenant slated in Baybay City today TACLOBAN CITYA peace covenant is slated to be held in Baybay City today involving among others, candidates running in this year’s midterm elections. This was confirmed by city elections officer Luzviminda Susaya who said that the signing of the peace covenant is designed to ensure that the conduct of elections in Baybay

would be orderly and peaceful. “All the candidates have been invited to attend the signing of the peace covenant. This way, we can be assured that they would not use any form of violence just to win,” Susaya said. The signing of the peace covenant is to be held at the Immaculate Conception Church at 10 in the morning. Among those invited

were reelectionist Mayor Carmen Cari and her lone rival, Marilou “Malot” Veloso Galenzoga. Their entire slates are also expected to attend the signing of the peace covenant. The Commission on Elections together with the Philippine National Police and the Philippine Army in the region have been initiating several peace covenants as part of their measure to en-

sure that the conduct of the elections here in the region would be orderly and peaceful. The first signing of similar act was done in Calbayog City in Samar which has been identified as one of the 15 concerned or hotspot areas in the country due to intense political rivalry, presence of private armed groups and that of the New People’s Army.

PRO8: Keep an eye on kid’s internet use

CAMP KANGLEON, Palo, Leyte – The Police Regional Office 8 (PRO8) strongly encouraged parents to monitor their children’s activity on the internet and cell phones as these could led to sexual abuse and exploitation. “With access to technological advances becoming easier, the threat to children of abuse and exploitation through the internet also increases. The danger include abuses mostly linked to child pornography,” said Police Chief Superintendent Elmer Soria, the top police official in the region. Soria added that child sexual abuse and exploitation are social realities and constitute two of the most severe violations against the rights of children, and parents should educate their children on how they can

best protect themselves from abuse with the advent of technology wherein danger is lurking even through the internet. “Parents must learn to recognize their roles in protecting and promoting the welfare of their children since they are the foremost line of defense,” the police regional director added. Soria informed that PRO8 fully supports the National Awareness Week for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation (NAWPCSAE) pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 731 issued February 5, 1996 declaring the second week of February every year as Child Abuse Awareness Week. This year’s observance from February 9-17 with the theme “Child Pornography Wa k a s a n ! S a Ta m a n g Paggamit ng Internet, Bata ay Gabayan” underscores a more conscientious use of the internet especially among children. Along with this, the police regional director directed all

police stations to conduct activities that would provide awareness to the parents, children, communities and society and seeks to help make communities safe haven for children. These includes hanging of streamers, announcement of the observance during flag raising ceremonies, school lecture series and community dialogues relative to protection of children against sexual abuse and exploitation; lay forum, media blitz and other child-related activities. “As more people gain knowledge, deeper understanding, and a broader perspective of the phenomenon of child sexual abuse and exploitation, there will be a more coordinated efforts and action for the protection of this vulnerable segment of our population.”, Soria added. Relative to the annual observance, PRO8 issued the following tips to parents and children:  Your body belongs to you. Report anyone who take pictures or videos of you or your friends without

clothes on;  Avoid persons who offer money, load, jobs or any promises in exchange for stripping/posing nude online;  People you don’t know are strangers, people on the internet are not always who they say they are;  Be yourself. Threat other people on the internet like you would treat other people in the real world;  Keep your online personal information private; and  If you feel scared, confused or uncomfortable because someone took a photo or video of you, or because of an online experience, talk to a trusted adult such as Parents, Teacher, Guidance C o u n s e l o r, B a r a n g a y, DSWD or the Women and Children Protection Desk (WCPD) of the nearest police station. In 2009, Congress has enacted Republic Act 9775 or the “Anti-Child Pornography Act” which aims to protect the Filipino child from all forms of

exploitation and abuse including but not limited to the use of a child in pornographic performances and materials and the inducement or coercion of a child to engage or be involved in pornography through whatever means. The law defined child pornography as any representation, whether visual, audio, written or a combination thereof, by electronic, mechanical, digital, optical, magnetic or any other means, of a child engaged or involved in real or simulated explicit

sexual activities or any represenatation of the sexual parts of a child for primarily sexual purposes. Philippine law also constitutes Republic Act 7610, or the “Special Protection of Children against Abuse, Exploitation and Discrimination Act,” which aims to provide special protection to children from all firms of abuse, neglect, c r u e l t y, e x p l o i t a t i o n , discrimination, and other conditions.

Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) Regional Vice President Walter Bacareza said that as of this year, all the 28 privately-owned hospitals in the region have agreed to implement the policy. “If a poor patient goes to private hospitals, they don’t have to spend even a single peso for hospitalization as along they would stay in wards,” he told reporters in a press briefing. Private hospitals in the region that agreed to implement the NBB policy are Leoncio Uy Memorial Hospital in Northern Samar; Domingo N. Casano Hospital, Our Lady of Guadalupe Hospital, Immaculate

Concepcion Clinic and Hospital, Agpalo Hospital Guiuan Polymedic, Borongan Doctors Hospital and Baconawa Hospital in Eastern Samar. Maasin Maternity and Children Hospital, Zenon T. Lagumbay Memorial Hospital, Consuelo K. Tan Memorial Medical Center, Corrompido Specialty Hospital, Pudpud Polyclinic and Specialty Hospital, and Saint Vincent Medical Clinic in Southern Leyte. In Leyte, these hospitals are Villaflor’s Clinic, Clinica Gatchalian and Hospital, Ormoc Maternity and Children’s Hospital, Leyte Baptist Clinic and Hospital, Baybay Doctors Hospital, Bethany Hospital, Divine Word Hospital, LIDE PASAR Hospital, Mother of Mercy Hospital, OSPA Farmers Medical Center, Remedios Trinidad Romualdez Hospital, and Tacloban Doctors Medical Center. Also adopting the poli-

They are with us in this quest,” Bacareza said. Target beneficiaries are recipients of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps), poor families identified by the National Household Targeting System (NHTS), and other indigent families with insurance premium shouldered by local government units. “The NBB policy mandates that no other fees shall be charged or paid for by the PhilHealth patients who availed of any of the identified 22 medical and surgical cases under the case rates package payment scheme,” he added.

ful and orderly conduct of elections here in Eastern Visayas. Major General Gerardo Layug, commanding general of the 8th Infantry Division whose headquarters are b a s e d in Ca tb a lo g a n City, said in a press statement, that they would ensure that the rebel group, the New People’s Army, could not move in soliciting funds from candidates. Layug, together with the regional directors of the Commission on Elections, lawyer Dennis Ausan, and of the Philippine National Police, Chief Supt. Elmer Soria, conducted a Regional Joint Security Coordinating Center (RJSCC)meeting last February 12. The gathering was meant to come up with measures to ensure a safe and peaceful elections in the region during the May 13, 2013 balloting. “We give our assurance to the people in this region that we will perform our mandate so that we will have a Safe(secure and fair) election come May 2013,” Layug said. “We will also conduct pro-active security operations to deter the NPA insurgents from imposing their socalled Permit to Campaign and Permit to Win to the local candi-

dates,” Layug further added. Earlier, the military here in the region reported that the rebel group is now conducting their so-called permit-to-campaign or to win fee among candidates. The scheme, as alleged by the military, is part of the rebel group’s fund raising demanding money from candidates, the amount ranges depending on the elective posts the candidates are seeking. Aside from demanding money, the rebel group also ask firearms, the military said. This claim of the military, however, was denied by the rebel group saying the permit-to-campaign and win fees story were just concocted by the military. During the 2007 elections, a reelectionist mayor in Samar was reportedly abducted by the rebels due to her failure to gave in to the demand of the rebel T h e m i l i t a r y, t o gether with the Comelec and the PNP, have been leading in the signing of peace covenants in the region as a way of ensuring a peaceful elections in the region.

Tarpaulin signs

uch is wasted in awareness campaigns of the government. People get information about what their government is doing from billboards and streamers scattered all over. Aside from bannered information, advertisements on television, radio and newspapers are also resorted to. We are bombarded on a daily basis of the many things that government does but we seldom feel anything that government is doing. Many programs and projects are advertised with the huge images of the politicians prominently displayed more than the important details about the program or project. The law that requires the placement of billboards on every project is intended to

inform about the cost and nature of the project so that the people can oversee its implementation. It is supposed to banner the cost, specifications and the timeframe for its completion. Unfortunately, the information is trivialized for they are buried in small letters under the bold names and shameless faces of the government officials who claim the project as their own. These government officials had developed the temerity to claim credit on the project as if it is being implemented using their money. The billboard of their shameless faces cost much out of the dilapidated funds that are mere remnants of percentage cutters. to page 5

Comelec curtails political ads First time Comelec becomes strict over election expenses. Will less election expenses reestablish people’s confidence?

Who in this world having business is not for earning profit? In the internet, Rappler Beta of February 12 issue, entitled “GMA, TV5 fail to get TRO from SC” by Purple Romero wrote: “Comelec chairman Sixto Brillantes, Jr. Said the networks’ objection to the limit, however, is based on their need to earn profit. Candidates spend millions on political advertisements. “The Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas denied this, saying they oppose the Comelec resolution because it vio-

lates the public’s right to information.” MJ Salaveria commented: “Actually, for me campaign ad limit is not a violation of public’s right to information. Hey, campaign ads are not informing at all, those are just for per-

suasion and marketing purposes. And those are boring ads that it made me roll my eyes not just once but all over and over again.” I agree with Salaveria’s comment that it is not a right to information but to persuade and

market their candidacy. Political ads like other commercial ads are boring, but election period is only once every three years. By the way, Ms Salaveria is an Atenean from Cagayan de Oro City, a CPA Lawyer-to be, according to https://twitter. com/MJSalaveria. There is nothing wrong to impose airtime limits, but the total number of minutes allowed each candidate is ridiculous. How many television and radio stations do we have to page 5

The Rotary Club GSE Program

The Rotary International has a program called the Group Study Exchange (GSE). It has been one of the most popular and finest programs of the Rotary Foundation. The objective of this program is to learn more about the country’s culture, share and enhance their vocational expertise, explore avenues of service, meet and develop new friends, and experience the warm Rotary hospitality. Just recently, District 3860 Zone 3C hosted a GSE Program where 5 inbound GSE Team from Texas, USA visited various cities across the Visayas including Tacloban City where they stayed for 4 days here in Tacloban City. The GSE Team is composed of Jennifer Graham as Team Leader, Erin Spencer, Gladys Reyna, Charles Keel-

The 5 Clubs are composed of Rotary Club Tacloban, RC San Juanico, RC Kandaya, RC Leyte Gulf and RC Kankabato. The visiting GSE Team made a courtesy call at the office of Mayor Alfred Romualdez last February 11 at the City Hall and the gracious Mayor briefed the visiting team of the socio-economic standing of Tacloban City and proudly informed the group that Tacloban is now a highly urbanized city in the many investments coming in from big businessmen of the country in the likes of the Ayalas, Gokongweis and Lopezes. I learned from the visit of the GSE Team that Mayor Romualdez was very familiar of the so-

cio-economic status of USA as he lived there for several years and travelled extensively to the different parts of USA. Through the initiative of Asst. Governor Ralph A. Salazar, District 3860 Zone 3C hosted a Cultural Night to the visiting GSE Team attended by Rotarians from 5 Rotary Clubs of Tacloban City which was also attended by District Governor Peter Rodriguez who comes from Ormoc City and the host Rotarians from Calbayog City. It was indeed a memorable night, as the GSE Team presented a power point information about their culture, and socioeconomic status of the state of Texas where they come from. There was also the wonderful presentation of the Leyte Kalipayan Dance Troupe where they showed our local dances like the Tinikling, Pandango sa Ilaw and the Maglalatik. They enjoyed the show so much that they themselves tried to dance the Tinikling. To our visiting GSE Team, Bon Voyage!!!.

in our country? From the internet Wikipedia the list of AM stations is 188, FM stations is 320 or total 508 combined AM-FM radio stations; and television channels is 381. Comelec Resolution No. 9631 limits the National candidates: 120 minutes in all TV networks and 180 minutes in all radio stations; and Local candidates, 60 minutes in all TV networks and 90 minutes in all radio stations. If an elementary grade pupil will be asked to divide the national candidates’ 120 minutes by 381 television channels will surely come out to .31 minutes for each channel. The 180 minutes divide by 508 radio stations will be .35 minutes per station. No need to Viewing the television and listening to radio broadcast manifested the candidates have already violated the rule. How many times in a day the spot broadcast is shown in the radio airwaves or flash in television screens?

The budget for these advertisements is too high a burden for the taxpayers. But the practice continues even if elections are still too far. These public officials are

it difficult or impossible for media outlets to comply while subjecting them to possible criminal liability and loss of franchise permits.” The Comelec commissioners may reason that not all the radio and television outlets will be used by the candidates. Right. However, within the 90 days period of campaign the 120 minutes for national candidates are allowed 1.33 minutes per day only, how can it be possible for a candidate to follow the airtime limit rule? In the article “Election spending seen to boost economy” by Michelle Remo of Philippine Daily Inquirer issue of June 4, 2009 states: “BSP Governor Amando Tetangco Jr. said any year preceding an election year usually benefits from higher spending, as political parties and election candidates spend on campaign materials

and advertisements.” If during election time our economy benefits from higher spending of politicians for campaign materials and advertisements, why impose an airtime limit? Is it not better to allow politicians to spend all their savings to boost economy? If they lose their bid including their wealth, then, next election there is no need for airtime limit. Why no need? Because the candidates who experienced spending all their wealth and losing the contest will surely advise others to quit spending their hard earned money. Comelec should reconsider or better have the Constitution amended to remove prohibition for heavy spending during election. Your opinion may be opposed to mine, but, mine may be better than you. Could it be? (Feedback welcome, g_ duna@yahoo.com)

The Sower Friday after Ash Wednesday Is 58:1-9a; Ps 51; Mt 9:14-15

THE QUESTION ABOUT FASTING The disciples of John approached [Jesus] and said, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast [much], but your disciples do not fast?” Jesus answered them, “Can the wedding guests mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast.”

WHY YOU DO NOT FAST? The followers of John the Baptist, like many other people, fasted frequently in order to follow the requirements of the Law and also to use it as a technique in spiritual growth. Until very recent times, fasting was a common penitential activity of the Church. It was an effective penance and a means of purification of the soul. Even though it is difficult to do it under the conditions of modern life, it is still a spiritually helpful practice. If the demands of the work we do are so great that we would not be able to fast and do our work right, then we should try to fast at least some times, so that we cam make a sacrifice for God and that we may experience deeper union with Him. Have we neglected the spiritual blessing? Are we afraid to try? (The Daily Gospel Now by Robert E. Sullivan, O.M.I. Published by Paulines.

Camella celebrates 4 years of love in Leyte

TA C L O B A N CITY – Camella Leyte is committed to bring more love to the province as the homebuilder celebrates its fourth year anniversary this month. Building master planned communities for families in E a s t e r n Vi s a y a s is something that Camella has put to heart since Vista Land set foot in this historic island on February 2009. “ We a r e c e l e brating four years of love in Camella by making true to our commitment in

realizing the dream of Filipinos finally owning a place that they can call home,” said Camella Leyte general manager Geraldine Gascon-Garcia. The month long celebration has jumpstarted on February 7 through giving recognitions to top performing agents, announcement of new buyer ’s promo, meeting with sales team, among other activities. Within February, Camella will hold post Valentine site opening for Camella Palo on Febru-

Camella Leyte, located along the national road in B r g y. C a m p e t i c , Palo, was launched February 2009. After eight months, more than half of the 300 units nes-

tled in a nine hectare property were already sold out. In 2011, Camella Leyte expanded to an adjacent threehectare lot to build 170 homes, which is 60% complete as of today. This good performance has sent signals that families in the region crave for quality and bigger homes with unique amenities such as community club house, basketball court, c h i l d r e n ’s p l a y ground, landscaped parks, and gardens.

The proceeds of the run will be used to strengthen a network of volunteers down to the barangay level and fund PRC critical humanitarian services.

Malot... from page 1

Malot, who is a highly-regarded businesswoman, is running for mayor of Baybay City on a platform for change. Baybay, one of the newly-created cities in

the country but is slowly emerging economically, has been in control by a single political family for decades now. But Malot, riding on popular public support, is determined to change the leadership in Baybay. The mayoralty candidate said that with her at the City Hall, the people of Baybay could expect radical changes not only in the aspect of leadership but even providing basic services to the people of the city. Malot said that she would also anchor her administration on transparency and good governance, two qualities, she claimed, that are lacking under the present admin-

istration of the city. Her visits to the various barangays of Baybay have been attended by big crowds, an indication that they want change in leadership. Meantime, during the UNA rally, Galenzoga was able to hobnob with the party’s so-called “three kings,” namely, Vice President Jejomar Binay; Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and former President Joseph Estrada, himself a mayoralty candidate for Manila. Galenzoga also met with Cebu Governor Gwendolyn “Gwen” Garcia, who is running for a congressional seat under the UNA ticket.
