TACLOBAN CITY - The Commission on Human Rights here in the region has called on victims of human rights abuses during the Martial Law to come to their office to enlist for possible claims on compensation.

This after President Aquino enacted into law the Human Rights Victims Reparation and Recognition Act of 2013 or Republic Act 10368 last Monday. The national government has set aside about

P10 billion for compensation of human rights abuses during the Marcos regime. “We are calling those who claimed to be victims of human rights abuses during the Martial Law for them to file their claims

stating that they were victims of Martial Law,” lawyer Paquito Nacino, CHR-8 director said. This way, he said, they could assess their claims and if found verified, could

TACLOBAN CITY- The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) will expand the coverage of its anti-drug symposium campaign not just in schools, barangays and offices but to include places of out-of-school youths in Eastern Visayas. PDEA-8 information officer Liza Baoy said that there is a need of including out-of-school youths in the campaign

against illegal drugs due to the fact that most drug seller in the region are out-of school youth. “Those out-of-school who are involved to this kind of illegal business must know what would be the consequence of their involvement once they are caught by the PDEA or PNP,” Baoy said. Baoy also said that in the year 2011,

The search is nationwide in scope organized by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) under the supervision of EMB, its attached agency. It is in cooperation with the Department of Education and the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) together with private partners in the national and local levels, which have the same objective in the preservation of our mother earth, its sustainability and good stewardship of the environment. In the 2009 competition, the Visayas State University (VSU) in Baybay City won second place nationwide in the tertiary level, according to Munsayac. The university’s green surroundings and the concerted efforts of school officials and students in proper disposal of garbage, tree planting activities, solid waste man-

agement through recyling solid wastes materials and its proper disposal won the nod of the judges. According to Munsayac, the EMB website has released the following criteria for the participating schools: 1.sustainability aspects of the school’s policy; environmental dimensions of schools operations; environmental dimensions of school operations; 2. environment-related features of school curriculum; 3. presence of vibrant eco organizations in campus; 4. presence of environmental partners and linkages in various programs; projects and activities. Additional criteria and special awards were incorporated this year,which includes the following sociocultural sustainability and economic sustainability awards. The regional winners in all categories will receive P20,000 cash prize and plaque of appreciation. The national winners will receive plaques of appre-

ciation and cash prizes of P50,000 for the 1st Place; P40,000 pesos for the 2nd Place and P30,000 for the 3rd place. Special awards from the partners have also been added this year Nestle Water Leadership Award and the MERALCO Energy Leadership Award. Winners for the special awards will receive P20,000 each award for the national level and P10,000 for the regional level. All awards are for all categories both regional and national winners. The entries for elementary and high school shall be submitted to DepED in three copies while the entries for higher education at the nearest EMB office. The national search will be on November 2013 in time for the National Environment Month. According to Munsayac, this year’s theme revolves around “Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Initiatives of the Respective Schools.”

The compensation though could not erase the sufferings that we had

experienced at that time,” Almaden said. According to him, for still unknown reason, he was dragged by the military out from his vehicle and brought to a military camp where he was detained for hours. He also suffered from physical abuse from the military, he said. Almaden said that whatever compensation he could get from the government could be used by him to buy medicines as he is suffering ailments due to old age.

The deadline for submission of entries has been moved from March 31, 2013 to April 15, 2013, according to Maribel Munsayac, solid waste management regional coordinator for Eastern Visayas of the Environmental and Management Bureau (EMB).

According to Munsayac, the search is in three categories, namely elementary, high school and tertiary/ collegiate level. Some schools have already signified to join the annual search, according to Munsayac, namely the Maasin City College, Maasin City; Holy Infant College, Tacloban City;

Tomeco bats for a smoke-free Tacloban

TACLOBAN CITY - Aiming to be a smoke free city starting this 2013 is one of the goals of the Tacloban city government. To comply with the city ordinance, Tomeco officers had already gradually implemented the said the anti-smoking ordinance in major city streets and penalizing those who were caught violating the ordinance. Violators of the antismoking ordinance will have to face a community service for the first offense, administrative case for the second offense, and a criminal case and imprisonment for the third offense. According to Isabelo Lagutan, information officer of Tomeco, to avoid be-

ing penalized, smokers were advised to take their cigarettes only in designated smoking areas. Lagutan disclosed that even at the Eastern Visayas Regional Medical Center (EVRMC), which has a visible signboard that it is a no-smoking area, many persons mostly tricycle drivers were caught smoking in the area. The Smoke-Free Tacloban is a big help for our city and not just for our city but also most especially for our health, he said. ( JONALYN I. RODRIGO, EVSU Intern)

NCMB says strike of Samelco I employees’ union is ‘imminent’

TACLOBAN CITY – The National Conciliation and Mediation Board (NCMB-8) said the impending strike of workers of the Samar I Electric Cooperative (Samelco I) is imminent, citing persistent refusal of the management to bargain collectively. NCMB regional conciliator-mediator Tomas Biboso said that the persistent refusal of the management for collective bargaining agreement(CBA) negotiation would result to strike, which is the worst case scenario. “This is not a joke. It is our impression that a strike in SAMELCO I is imminent considering the overwhelming support and the unanimous decision of the union members to go on strike,” Biboso said. During Sunday’s strike balloting, all the 96 union members who were present voted yes to strike. In the third and second to the last conc i l i at i on - m e d i at i on conference, the management’s legal counsel Jose Mendiola said that the Samelco I board of directors reached a consensus not to sub-

mit a counter proposal on the proposed CBA. “As long as there’s a pending appeal questioning the legitimacy of the union before the Office of the Secretary of Labor, the management will not recognize the workers group as a sole and exclusive bargaining agent… We will exhaust all remedies available,” Mendiola said. On November 2012, the management filed appeal before the office of Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz questioning the certification of Samelco I employees union on the ground that it is unlawful for workers who are members of the electric cooperative to join a labor union. Mendiola confirmed that the board of directors is now contemplating their option to seek reconsideration in the event that their appeal with the Labor Secretary is denied. The DOLE main office committed to issue a decision within the first two days of this week but Sec. Baldoz has not yet settled the case as of yesterday afternoon, according to Biboso. “The management

retracted in their previous commitment to proceed with the negotiation should the Secretary’s decision be in favor of the union,” the NCMB official noted. “The parties remained firm in their respective positions. Despite the result of the strike vote referendum, the management insisted that the negotiation be deferred pending their appeal.” The strike vote result was formally submitted to the NCMB office Monday and the strike ban will end on March 4, 2013. “That means we can go on with the strike as early as March 5 but all union members have to meet this weekend to finalize our plan,” said Divina Gracia Balite, Samelco I Employees Union president. A final conciliation meeting is set on March 4, 2013 with the NCMB exerting all efforts to prevent the strike to happen. Samelco I employees union will spoil Eastern Visayas region’s zero-strike record for the last decade. Organized in April 2012, the 105-member labor union is the newest in

Leyeco II to respect consumers’ resolution on CDA registration TACLOBAN CITY - Leyeco II OIC manager Macel Avestruz firmly believes that they are to strictly follow the previous resolution signed by thousands of their electric consumers in opposing against the petition of the NASECORE for the cooperative’s registration to Cooperative Development Authority (CDA). According to Avestruz, Leyeco II is an electric cooperative owned by their consumers in which they respect whatever deci-

sion made by their consumers especially matters pertaining to their operation. “We are respecting the resolution made by our consumers pertaining to the CDA registration in which it was participated in by the 3,000 consumers held during the previous assembly,” Avestruz said. Leyeco II is now under the supervision of the National Electrification Authority (NEA). Avestruz said that they are strengthening their operations to give more efficient services for the benefits of the

consumers. Meanwhile, she vehemently denied allegations that the consumers of the cooperative will benefit more if Leyeco II will be registered to CDA. “Issue pertaining to the transparency of the cooperative, we have submitted reports to the NEA, PRC and also we have posted data in our website,” Avestruz disclosed. On the other hand, Avestruz strongly said that she cannot tell whether Leyeco II will register to CDA. (ROBERT FRANCISCO)

FLET monitors alleged oil spill

TACLOBAN CITY The Fishery Law Enforcement Team (FLET) here through its department head revealed that they are closely monitoring the alleged 10-meter oil spill in Cancabato Bay and in some areas between Deo Island and Palubulon. In an interview, FLET officer Noel Ligtas said that they are strengthening their monitoring in order to entrap the fish-

ermen responsible of the said oil spill. “We received reports from a concerned citizen saying that they have seen a fishing boat dumping used oil in Cancabato and in areas between Deo Island and Palubulon,” Ligtas said. FLET has to closely monitor the illegal operation because if not, this might affect the good condition of the sea water and may trigger to a

bigger damage, Ligtas added. Meanwhile, the official said that the fishermen who are dumping the used oils are not from the city of Tacloban but from nearby municipalities. Further, Ligtas said that they had successfully conducted their annual forum in which they are educating the fishermen about the marine laws. (ROBERT FRANCISCO)

Summer to brace for

ncient weather forecasters who based their ideas on old beliefs and superstitions would predict an exceedingly hot summer after having had an extremely cold December-February temperature experience. True or not, one thing is for sure: we had already experienced a chilling temperature especially at nights in the past days and weeks. Another thing that’s for sure is that, we are nearing the summer and it is likely that temperature then may indeed be unusually hot. As such, we have to prepare and brace for certain occurrences that might affect our livelihood, health, and properties. As we know during hot summer, rain is rare, resulting in low water supply that may affect not just our personal and household consumptions, but also agricultural crops such as rice, corn, and other plants that require sufficient water supply to

survive. Initiatives then such as making or fixing an impaired drainage system should be done early on to avoid future losses. Precautions, too, should be taken to ensure that the forthcoming hot temperatures will not result in house fires particularly in congested communities where houses are made of light materials. We know that in an extremely dry and hot environment, a slight electrical wiring fault, a small candle flame, and cigarette remains could generate wild fire that could devour lives and properties. If one is not careful enough, one may also succumb to heat-related health problems such as heatstroke, UTI, skin diseases, etc. These and many more are things that people should prepare for as summer 2013 approaches.

Will LMWD please talk more and often to clarify emerging issues and concerns? Public utility water service in Tacloban highly urbanized city has been keeping some consumers awake almost overnight every night for three weeks now since last week. QN only hopes that the management of Leyte Metropolitan Water District is fully aware of the real cause or causes of this irregular sleeping 3-week habit, as well as of the cause or causes of such cause or causes. This humble representation has not been an exception. The sleeplessness actually began as a good tiding for Tacloban homes with faucets connected to LMWD’s service lines. Early last week, though, such had become an acrid source of enmity, to some. A week earlier, water fetchers just suddenly woke up to find out that water pressure was becoming strong, and then stronger after each passing hour. At

my mother-in-law’s home, I discovered that for the very first time, LMWD’s water was moving up to a level much, much higher than the home pipeline which was intended for a shower on a second floor. As hours passed, water could already shoot up to a third floor level, and was still strong. That prompted me to imagine that the wa-

ter pressure could make a fire hose effectively working for more than two hours to quell angry flames on the rooftop of a three-story house. That was a magnificent performance, occurring between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m., but I next dismissed that to be just a temporary thing. I even thought that perhaps the strong or high pressure

must have been caused by LMWD’s periodic draining of pipelines in its bid to constantly provide clean and safe water. The only thing different was that, if draining was ongoing, water that was coming out of the faucets was never murky and there were no tiny particles in it. It was adequately clear, and clean. Then I thought that by the following evening hours, water pressure would go back to its usual low pressure. I entertained in my curious mind the other thought that maybe LMWD was trying to prove to doubting Taclobanon filosofos that it was indeed capable – if and whenever it wanted to – of providing a very strong running water service. But then, the strong water pressure returned night after

Speaking of thieves

Thieves are regarded as pests and destructive parasites in society. We don’t like them because, besides being thieves, they consequently prove to be liars, cheaters, swindlers, traitors, and dishonest individuals. When cornered, or when other “opportunities” come their way, they resort to other criminalities such as murder, rape, etc.. These are traits that we despise intensely, and people we hate to be around us. We usually identify potential thieves as coming from the poor sector. These are hard up people who don’t have stable income or none at all. In the face of severe needs, like needs for food to feed their starving, emaciated children, needs for urgent medication to cure serious ailments, and needs for a shelter, these people tend to resort to stealing to meet these needs. The likelihood of their doing so is there, hence their tendency to be accused of thievery. People who end up big

losers in gambling activities and would like to get even but are so financially drained are also potential suspects. Why, when a man loses huge amounts in a gambling spree, and the money, aside from not being his, was originally intended for more important expenditures and must be returned, then the guilty gambler may resort to stealing should chances come. And many such men have been reported for committing such an act. Lazy people yet obsessed with the strong desire to get rich quick likewise pose as potential thieves. They want riches, much riches, yet they do not want to work hard enough to earn wealth. Well, indeed, there is only one thing they can do to achieve that goal, and that’s to rob other people’s riches. All it takes is cunning, good planning, and daring execution of that plan. The result, if the plan is carried out perfectly, is instant wealth. These people above

may have been the common culprits insofar as thievery is concerned. But most of them are actually just small-time thieves. They are not the biggest burglars when caught. The biggest thieves, sad to say, remain free and are enjoying all the benefits of freedom under the sun. But who are they? Well, as history and media reports would have it, some of the biggest thieves in our society have been occupants of Malacanang, of the Senate, of Congress, of different state departments, of the judiciary, of the AFP, of the LGUs, etc. Their loots do not run by the thousands, like what the smalltime robbers “earn,” but by the millions, and may even accumulate to billions over the years. Too bad but when it comes to the implementation of the laws against stealing, only the smalltime “practitioners” are caught and jailed. The biggest ones are seldom apprehended for being untouchables, nor are they put behind bars. Thievery then is a widespread crime in our society but bias and discrimination tend to categorize the guilty thieves. Only the smaller ones are called thieves, deserving the penalty of the laws. The big figures are unseen and unnoticed, as though they are that too huge to be seen.

The Globe Asiatique case

The Court of Appeals (CA) dismissed the syndicated estafa charge against a co-accused of fugitive Globe Asiatique President Delfin Lee. The syndicated estafa charge against Cristina Sagun was downgraded to simple estafa after she was dropped from the case, a development that would allow Lee who has been in hiding to avoid arrest. The government must challenge the decision of CA to the Supreme Court. The syndicated estafa charge involved billions of pesos in allegedly anomalous loans that Globe Asi-

atique obtained from PagIBIG Fund for a housing project in Pampanga. Globe Asiatique was accused of using “ghost borrowers” and fake documents to obtain more than P6.5 Billion in loans from Pag-IBIG fund for its Xevera housing project in Mabalacat and Bacolor towns. The CA decision brought grave injustice to the victims of the alleged scam. Those who are responsible for this scam should be brought to justice. The houses were in the name of “special buyers” or people who were paid

to take-out the loans. This scheme was reportedly hidden because it was Globe Asiatique that collected the amortization supposedly paid by the buyers. The scam surfaced when many of the houses were left unoccupied or were found being used by other people and not the legitimate buyers. With the dismissal of the charges against Sagun, the number of accused is down to four (4), effectively downgrading the syndicated estafa case to simple estate, a bailable offense. Five accused are needed for a syndicated estafa case to proceed. While there’s a P2 million reward for information leading to the arrest of Delfin Lee, he has the resources and influence to evade arrest. When there is no more syndicated estafa case, Lee can post bail and he cannot be arrested while the case is on trial.

night for the next seven days.

It was great for those with electric pumps. That machine was decommissioned for a week, or more. People like me had to keep open their eyes not only to witness the unfolding superlative from this service that had been suffering from a prolonged period of acrid criticisms from both water-user-residents and mere visitors particularly beginning from that time when the Tacloban government was going deep in its bid to make the then ordinary city “highly urbanized”. There was another reason. They had to be awake in order to ensure that they could close the main faucet or main line at home when all containers are already full with water. They didn’t want a flood to occur only inside their homes because of continually spilling water, especially when there was no rain outside and the roads were dry. To those who woke up to this recurring event, LMWD deserved prolonged applauses, and sighing thanks. Yet, “sample la ada adto”, a comment came a week after that high performance level. Sighs of relief had to be over. Water supply and service became decadent, once more. It was poor servicing again. A colleague of mine had confessed, they had no water again. At my in-law’s home, though, water had been stopping between 4:30 a.m. and 10 p.m.. When “normal” pressure returns, many returned to their usual unwanted habit of staying awake for long evening hours just to get water to fill their containers which empty by 7 a.m. of the following day. “San-o daw la mabalik adto nga kamakusog han awas?”, another imagined, clearly getting disappointed again with how LMWD’s water service is deteriorating. But, wait! Isn’t it that LMWD had already obtained a very huge and onerous loan for the improvement of its water management and supply servicing? No, we didn’t quite get it clear what LMWD was doing and saying about what was happening. As in the martial law days, people got sore, and worried, while wondering why no authority ever cared to come out and explain, at least via the radio airlanes, each time there was anything puzzling, perplexing, and annoying to the general public. There has been no martial law in Tacloban, yet we began feeling that the situation was in that neighborhood. Nobody was daily coming out to make clarifications. There were not even notices posted in conspicuous places in the urban barrios. To many intellectuals, especially public sector employees, there seemed to have been a “news blackout” – one of the scary attributes of the hated martial law of Marcos of the Philippines circa September 22, 1972 and January, 1981. Then, people have found it hard to ask, as they didn’t know if anyone at LMWD would ever care to talk, willingly but jovially and cordially, to appease “the gods” but more to erase falsities behind rumbling rumors, tweaks and twits. LMWD general manager Gang Villasin apparently did not order any of his trusted staff to even do the explaining, on a repeated basis, or to go from zone to zone to make the much needed clarifications. Things had been like when LMWD was, for over two years, bearing the brunt of accusations and verbal castigations for its weaknesses, incompetence and incapabili-

ties. Now, Taclobanons found out that LMWD’s excavation and construction works somewhere at Apitong had been carelessly stopped by the village chief and some of his officials, for the simple arguments that they noticed that certain points of prior agreement which LMWD had with them had not been and were not being dutifully followed by LMWD and its project contractor, and that they were just afraid that how this work was going may be inviting flashfloods that will cause miseries to constituents. Put aside political issues, as, actually, politics and personalities don’t reckon in here. Only bad, unguided, idiomorphically barriotic decisions. The problem would not have come to life had it not only been created by the village chief and some of his officials. Had they not stopped the ongoing improvement works, water, as it was experienced for over one week three weeks ago, would have continued to dazzle many homes in Tacloban HUC. ***

LOREN VS CHIZ IN SURVEY RESULTS? -Tuesday morning’s broadcast by one national television network did not actually put to bad light certain personalities when it said that Loren Legarda edged way ahead of Chiz Escudero in the current senatorial race which officially started only two weeks ago. The broadcast – newscast with commentaries – referred to results of a recent poll survey which asked respondents (the voting populace) who they thought would go up when elections are done. Earlier, media accounts said that survey respondents placed Loren and Chiz on the same level – meaning, on a tie. Much earlier, though, a survey said in December, 2012 that Chiz was very much number one with the next senatoriable named falling much behind. Results of the latest survey should not bother supporters and voters. They could change. Yes, the change could be a reverse, or it would show another instance of a tie, or something else. That’s the landscape of politics around Earth.

The Sower Thursday of the 2nd Week of Lent Jer 17:5-10; Ps 1; Lk 16:19-31 PARABLE OF LAZARUS AND THE RICH MAN Jesus said to the Pharisees, “There was a rich man who dressed in purple garments and fine linen and dined sumptuously each day. And lying at his door was a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who would gladly have eaten his fill of the scraps that fell from the rich man’s table. Dogs even used to come and lick his sores. When the poor man died, he was carried away by angels to the bosom of Abraham. The rich man also died and was buried, and from the netherworld, where he was in torment, he raised his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. And he cried out, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me. Send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am suffering torment in these flames.’ Abraham replied, ‘My child, remember that you received what was good during your lifetime while Lazarus likewise received what was bad; but now he is comforted here, whereas you are tormented. Moreover, between us and you a great chasm is established to prevent anyone from crossing who might wish to go from our side to yours or from your side to ours.’ He said, ‘Then I beg you, father, send him to my father’s house, for I have five brothers, so that he may warn them. Lest they too come to this place of torment.’ But Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the prophets. Let them listen to them.’ He said, ‘Oh no, father Abraham, but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’ Then Abraham said, ‘If they will not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded if someone should rise from the dead.’” OPTION FOR THE POOR Today’s gospel story contrasting the destiny of rich and poor is another instance of the ‘option for the poor’ in Luke’s gospel. ‘Blessed are the poor’ is its version of the Beatitudes. It is also appropriate reading for Lent, as almsgiving is together with prayer and fasting, a traditional Lenten practice. The story of the rich man and Lazarus is, apparently, a well-known folktale from Egypt. But Luke adds on to it an allusion to the lack of faith of Jesus’ generation, if the rich ate unprepared to follow the basic Old Testament teaching (of Moses and the prophets) what chance have they of accepting the mystery if the kingdom in Jesus’ person, and the resurrection? ‘They will not be convinced even if one should rise from the dead. ‘The practice of even Old Testament virtue is a necessary foundation for believing in the Good News of Christ. Prayer-lines: THROUGH THE HEARING OF YOUR WORD, LORD, MAY WE COME TO KNOW YOU IN OUR HEARTS, AND LIVE ACCORDING TO YOUR WILL. (Feed from the Tree of Life by Columba Breen, OSB, published by Paulines.

Tacloban City under Registry No. 96-3216, in the name of Antonio Luis Ballete who is the subject of this petition. The father of Brannon Anthony Luis Ballete has no knowledge of the correctness of the entries in the subject certificate of live birth as he took it upon himself to put in the said erroneous and fictitious information therein. She and Anthony Bunag Gonzales parted ways soon after the birth of Brannon Anthony Luis Ballete. She went back to Oras, Eastern Samar and raised Brannon Anthony Luis Ballete at the house of her parents. It was there that her parents affectionately coined the nickname of Brannon” to the baby ANTONIO LUIS BALLETE GONZALES. When the said child started studying in the elementary grade at Oras, Eastern Samar, he used the family name of his mother which is BALLETE. As such, the name he used since then and until the present is BRANNON ANTHONY LUIS BALLETE. This fact is shown by the copies of his school records. The certificate of live birth of the said child contains the following entries which correction is being sought: a. The entry of first name from ANTONIO LUIS to BRANNON ANTHONY LUIS; b. To delete the entry of middle name which is BALLETE and leave it blank; c. To correct the entry of Last Name from GONZALES to BALLETE; d. To correct the spelling of the first name of the mother from the erroneous SUZZETTE to the correct one which is SUZETTE; e. To correct the entry of the Middle Name of the Mother from the erroneous “S” to the correct one which is “MONTIBON”; and f. Cancel the fictitious for the date and place of marriage of parents which is February 13, 1996 - Manila and leave it blank or replace it with appropriate entry indicating that the parents are not married; Finding the petition to be sufficient in form and sub-

stance, set the hearing of this case on March 26, 2013 in the morning session of this Court. During the said date, time and place any interested party may appear and show cause why the present petition should not be granted. Let also a copy of this order be published once a week for three (3) consecutive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation in the Province of Leyte at petitioner’s expense. Furnish copy of this order the Solicitor General, the NSO, Manila, the Local Civil Registrar of Tacloban City, petitioner and counsel. SO ORDERED.

RSOG nabs man selling stolen bancas, seized guns

CAMP KANGLEON, Palo, Leyte – The Regional Special Operations Group (RSOG8) of the Police Regional Office 8 (PRO8) arrested a man for selling a stolen motorized banca and for resisting arrest by firing his gun to police authorities. Eastern Visayas top police official Police Chief Superintendent Elmer Ragadio Soria identified the suspect as Vivencio Abasola alias Dagul, 31, married, fisherman, who was arrested in his hideout at Sitio Baras, Brgy. Cinco in Sierra Islands, a group of islands composed of seven barangays which is an hour motorboat ride northwest of Catbalogan

City proper. Soria informed that a flash alarm from San Isidro Municipal Police Station in Northern Samar was relayed to all police stations and operating units about a piracy incident wherein a motor boat with 5.5 horsepower Honda engine owned by one Barnesto Hermosa of Brgy Caglanipao Norte and four other motor engines were carted by the suspects. On Friday morning, RSOG received intelligence information that a man was selling a motorized banca that fits the description of the stolen motorboat. Upon confirming the veracity of the report, RSOG led by Police Inspector Constantino Jabo-

nete, Jr. proceeded to the area for follow-up investigation and appropriate police operation. Upon reaching the place, Abasola sensed the presence of the police team and opened fire to the approaching lawmen and ran towards his house where he was collared after a brief chase. Recovered from Abasola was one caliber .38 revolver with two live bullets. Police also recovered in the suspect’s residence a homemade shotgun loaded with 2 live ammunitions and in the area 3 spent shells of .38 caliber. RSOG also seized the motorized banca being offered for sale by the suspect and two other motorboats with Kembo 7.5

horsepower and Kama 10 horsepower, respectively and two other bancas without engines, believed to be part of the loot since suspect was not able to present documents of ownership on said boats. Suspect was immediately brought to Catbalogan City Police Station for proper disposition as case for illegal possession of firearms in relation to the Comelec gun ban and direct assault agents of person in authority is being prepared for filing against him. “An investigation is also being conducted for possible involvement of the suspect in piracy and other illegal activities,” Soria informed.

Group urges undocumented OFWs to apply for amnesty TACLOBAN CITYMigrants rights group Migrante on Tuesday called on all undocumented Filipino workers in Saudi Arabia to apply for its amnesty program. Also expressing his elation to this development, Migrante Middle East spokesman John Leonard Monterona thanked the Saudi government for the “humanitarian act.” “We welcome the announcement of Labor Minister Adel Fakieh in granting amnesty to all undocumented migrant workers in the Kingdom. It will give our fellow expatriates chance to reunite with their loved ones after years of being away from their respective families.” “Regardless of nation-

their legislative works. The director said that only the provinces of Leyte and Northern Samar use the said program now. “This program would help the legislative body in doing their legislative functions efficient and effective,” Noval said. The official explained that DILG regional office 8 created

ality, Filipinos or not, they share the same struggles – that of being undocumented and it’s not that easy being ‘illegals’. They are prone to all types of abuses. In fact, most of the undocumented were run away being victim of human rights and labor rights violations,” said Monterona in a statement to Leyte Samar Daily Express. The OFW leader then urged all undocumented OFWs to enlist at PH embassy in Riyadh and consulate in Jeddah. “As of now, we have monitored little more than 7,000 undocumented OFWs who have enlisted themselves to the PH consulate in Jeddah requesting for repatriation since last year.” Monterona also asked the Philippine embassy in

Riyadh to seek guidance on this amnesty announcement from the Labor minister. Filipinos are the third largest migrant community in Saudi. “The guidelines will help our fellow undocumented OFWs getting out of Saudi Arabia without much hassle and without being penalized. The PH embassy must conduct an information dissemination campaign regarding this.” “This development should reach to our around 26,000 to 30,000 undocumented Filipino workers in the Kingdom mostly household service workers and construction workers.” There are about 8-M migrant workers in Saudi Arabia, in which 1.2-M are Filipinos.

BFP: Fire incidents in Tacloban dipped

TACLOBAN CITY Fire incidents recorded in the city of Tacloban has declined from 54 in 2011 to 24 cases in 2012, revealed Fire Marshall Adel de Paz Bautista. Based on the data from the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), it was found out that the effective campaign of the city’s fire department has been one of the reasons why there was a decrease in the number of fire incidence. “The decrease of fire incidence in the city was probably due to effective implementation of our policy that includes the safety prevention measures, support from the local government unit (LGU) and also from the people of Tacloban,” Bautista said.

For this year, according to the fire marshall, the city has only three fire cases, two of which were recorded in January and one in February. Bautista said that they are always strengthening their campaign in monitoring the fire safety in all private and public establishments in the city including the different boarding houses here. “On the monitoring that we had conducted, it is good to say that all of the establishment owners are very cooperative with our campaign,” he added. Securing fire exits and other fire related devices in operating a business or opening establishment is a requirement in acquiring a per-

mit from their office, Bautista added. Meanwhile, BFP is to celebrate fire prevention month next week, with a theme: Sunog at Sakuna Paghandaan, Kalikasan ay Pangalagaan ng Matamasa ang Pag-unlad ng Bayan. They are to highlight the “bidalympics” and pyrolympics, which would be participated in by their barangay volunteers against their staff. “On Friday, we will celebrate fire prevention month. We will start with a unity walk headed by our regional director followed by a motorcade and a thanksgiving mass outside our office,” Bautista said. (ROBERT FRANCISCO)

“Tsinelas”

ni Stephanie Talacay Umaga na naman at muli ko na namang masisilayan ang pinakamagandang babae sa buong mundo. Ang ganda talaga ni Crissy. Palagi akong napapalingon sa kanyang mga kilos at galaw. Ngunit hindi ako isang stalker na gaya na iniisip ng ibang tao. Kapitbahay ko siya sa apartment namin. Natatanaw ko mula sa aking bahay ang mga ginagawa niya mula sa kanyang paggising sa umaga. Matagal-tagal na rin akong may gusto kay Crissy. Hindi ko alam kung bakit at paano ako nagkagusto sa isang katulad niya. Isa siyang perpektong nilalang na nasa mundo ng mga tao. Paumanhin nga pala kung hindi ko naipakikilala ang aking sarili. Mas mabuti sigurong manatiling lihim na lamang ang aking pangalan. Ngunit, maaari ko namang mailarawan ang aking sarili. Isa akong maliit na lalaki na may kayumangging balat. Mabilis rin akong kumilos dahil naniniwala ako na mahalaga ang bawat oras na lumilipas kaya kailan-

gan ko itong pahalagahan at gamitin ng maayos. Mala-artista rin ako pagdating sa mga babae. Sa tuwing dumadaan ako, pinagtitinginan nila ako at kung minsan, nagtitilian pa sila. Kaya masasabi ko na gwapo ako kagaya nina Richard Gutierrez at Daniel Padilla. Naguguluhan din ako sa ilan sa kanila dahil may mga araw at oras na kapag nakikita nila ako, tinititigan nila ako ng masama habang natatakot naman ang iba sa akin. Hindi ko tuloy maiwasang itanong sa sarili ko kung anong mayroon ako at ganoon ang trato nila sa akin. Siguro may mga bagay lang silang kailangang asikasuhin kaya ganoon na lamang ang mga reaksyon nila. Magulo talaga ang mga babae! Subalit, hindi ko na lamang sila pinagtutuunan ng pansin. Iisa lang naman ang nasa puso’t isipan ko----- si Crissy. Minsan, napapaisip ako kung bakit mag-isa lamang siya na nakatira sa kanyang apartment. Wala siyang pamilya na kasama. Wala rin namang boyfriend na

bumibisita sa kanya. Nakakalungkot nga isipin na walang bumibisita sa kanya. Mm.. Alam ko na! Bukas, pupuntahan ko siya at sasabihin ko ang dapat niyang malaman. Magtatapat na ako sa kanya! Tama! Gagawin ko ito bukas. Kinabukasan, kinakabahan ako ngunit sa kabilang banda, mas nangingibabaw ang tuwang aking nararamdaman dahil makakausap ko na rin siya sa wakas. Sa bawat paghakbang ko papalapit sa kanya, lalo akong kinakabahan. Heto na! Nakita ko na rin siya. Wala akong masabi at ganoon din siya. Nagtitigan lang kami ng matagal at bigla na siyang tumakbo papunta sa kanyang sala. Hinabol ko siya para makipag-usap, pero nang nakarating ako sa sala niya, nagulat ako nang hindi ko siya nakita. Pero nung lumingon ako, nakita ko siyang may hawak na tsinelas at PAAAAAK! Doon natapos ang buhay ko. Ang buhay ng isang ambisyosong ipis.

TACLOBAN CITY The Department of Labor and Employment regional office (DOLE-8) here has lauded the anti-child labor campaign undertaken by the province of Northern Samar . DOLE-8 Regional Director Exequiel Sarcauga told reporters in an interview here that Northern Samar under the leadership of Governor Paul Daza has an impressive program and is taking an active role to eliminate child labor in his province. Director Sarcauga disclosed that Northern Samar is the first province in the country to pass an ordinance on anti-child labor. Gov.Daza informed reporters in media interviews that the primary objective

of the approved ordinance last year was “Defining And Penalizing The Use Of Child Labor And Providing For A Program For The Prevention And Progressive Elimination Of Child Labor In Northern Samar And Other Purposes” is the eradication of the child labor in the province and the elimination of the exploitation of children aged 17 years old and below. Daza added that the ordinance also concerns for the provision of the additional or alternative sources of livelihood to help the parents earn better income for them to be able to provide the family basic needs and send their children to school.
