Brigade commander belied reports NPAs joined protest rally in Baybay ORMOC CITY 802nd Brigade Commander, Col. Rafael Valencia belied reports that there were members of the New People’s Army who joined the group of Marilou “Malot’ Galenzoga in Baybay City last June 30, 2013. The area in front of the City Hall and legislative building of Baybay is a hot spot for supporters of Galenzoga lobbying for their causes, but that Sunday’s crowd was not from the usual leftist groups, according to Col Valencia, who deployed troops from the 78th Infantry Battalion to guard the rally. “There was no intelligence report that a number of those present were members of the NPA, and we were

hoping also na hindi sasakyan ng kabila just to destabilize the government,” Valencia told Leyte Samar Daily Express. The protesters carried placards bearing messages as `We want change in Baybay’, `Hustisya Para sa mga Baybayanon’. At least 20 placards were obviously from the same source. When asked, the protesters said they were volunteers or individuals showing support for Galenzoga. And they’re apparently from different villages of Baybay, Meanwhile, the national headquarters of the Philippine Army in Manila is now asking reports from the troops of 802nd Brigade Phil Army and 78th Infantry Batallion Phil Army

said. Valencia said the AFP is always available 24/7 ready to risk the lives of the soldier to ensure peace and safety in the region. Both the PNP and the AFP, according to Valencia, have been initiating proactive measures aimed at preventing any form of threats and violence. Leyte Samar Daily Express learned that the military is ready to provide additional security contingencies like manpower, intelligence, explosives and ordnance disposal teams, K9 capability, and medical teams in case needed to support the law enforcement operations of the police forces when requested.

Man found dead in Merida ORMOC CITYThe Merida Police was alarmed 5 a.m. of July 8, Monday, when passersby along the national highway called their attention to a lifeless body at Sitio Look, Brgy. Libas, Merida, Leyte. PO2 Eutemio Baillo, the investigator on duty, said the victim was later identified as 29-year old Edward Zapanta, a native of Albuera,also in Leyte but known to have long been staying in Mabini St., Ormoc

City. He was believed to be a victim of summary execution. The victim sustained gunshot wounds on different parts of the body but mostly on the head. The police recovered 22 empty shells of caliber .45 at the crime scene. PO2 Baillo added that Zapanta was known to have police records and was a former detainee at the Ormoc City Jail for robbery but the case was dismissed due to the nonappearance of the private

was received by CAAP Tacloban office four days before July. Hence, the CAAP office here decided to move the implementation date to July 1. “Based on the data collected during the consultations last year, the CAAP board decided to increase the rate on a staggered basis,” Alfonso told Leyte Samar Daily Express. The new circular also raise terminal fee of principal class 2 airports from P20 to P50. These are Catarman Airport in Northern Samar, Calbayog Airport in Samar, and Ormoc Airport in Leyte. Community airports in Maasin in Southern Leyte, Naval in Biliran, Hilongos in Leyte, Guiuan in Eastern Samar, Catbalogan City in Samar, and Borongan

City in Eastern Samar adjusted their terminal fee from P10 to P30. By mid-2014, the passenger terminal fee will hike to P100 in Ormoc City, and P50 for all community airports. In 2015, the rate in Catarman will be P100 per departing passenger. Alfonso said that additional funds to be generated from staggered will not be an income for CAAP but a recovery of cost for various improvement and maintenance of airport facilities. The P30 rate has been implemented since 1997.

PNGOC exec bats for RH law passage T A C L O B A N CITY— A sound comprehensive Reproductive Health (RH) policy that is rights-based and central to the measure is freedom of informed choice can help alleviate the lives of every Filipino people, according to an advocacy group calling for the passage of RH law. Dr. Eden Divinagracia, executive director of the Philippine NGO Council on Population, Health and Welfare, Inc. (PNGOC) with umbrella network in Eastern Visayas, said that with RH law in place, it will benefit every family as the state shall guarantee the human rights of all persons. “It shall include the right to universal access to reproductive health information and services. It shall give couples, individuals and women the right to decide freely and responsibly whether or not to have children, to determine the number, spacing and timing of their children,” Divinagracia added. She said the law should also make every Filipino to make decisions concerning reproduction free of discrimination, coercion and violence and attaint the highest condition of sexual reproductive health. “Neither the Church nor the State has the right to dictate Filipino citizens which form of family planning they should use. That choice primarily and ultimately belongs to the couple, but most especially to women who bear pregnancy, child birth and child care,” Divinagracia said. In the Philippines,

where more than 86% of the population is Roman Catholic, religion and politics are intertwined especially when the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) joins and tries to block the implementation of the RH law. The oral arguments on the controversial Republic Act 10354 or RH Law started yesterday at the Supreme Court. “To provide a good future for one’s family, the government should create a favourable environment for every Filipino by having a comprehensive RH policy,” Divinagracia added. “Now is the right time for the passage of RH policy to recognize the needs of our women, children and families. We urge the Supreme Court to prevent further delays of the RH law,” she said. Divinagracia believes that through its passage, access to reproductive health information and services to the poor ad hard-to-reach, marginalized population can be readily available for our people.

DPWH revamp to affect five EV district engineers

13CP_LeyteSamarDaily18'5x15_Jul9-11_lo.indd 1

TACLOBAN CITY – At least five district engineers of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) will be affected in the revamp of “overstaying” field officials. In a special order dated July 2, 2013, DPWH Secretary Rogelio Singson directed the reassignment of Engineers Margarita Junia (Leyte 2nd), Carlos Veloso (Southern

Leyte), Lut Baclea-an (Leyte 5th) and Leopoldo Pica (Leyte 3rd). Junia and Veloso will switch assignments as well as Baclean and Pica. “These district engineers have been in their assigned district for more than five years. This is good for them as this will give them chance to familiarize other areas,” Asis said. These officials are ex-

pected to assume their new assignment within two weeks, according to him. Asis confirmed that Khadafy Tangcol will replace Sandy Pua as chief of Northern Samar first district engineering office. Tangcol is an OIC assistant district engineer of Cagayan de Oro 1st district engineering office. Pua will be assigned

to the regional office. The reshuffling is pursuant to the provisions of Executive Order No. 124, dated 30 January 1987. Asis politicians are hands off in this move as this was solely decided by Secretary Singson. The region has 13 district engineering offices established in 12 congressional districts and Tacloban City. (SARWELL Q. MENIANO)

Speak in mother tongue

B

randing it as a fight against globalization and colonial mentality, certain learned in the field of literature and culture are instead pushing for the use of one’s own mother tongue anywhere and anytime, especially in classroom discussions. These experts claim that there will be easier understanding of issues or lessons discussed in the forum or classes, as the case maybe, when participants are free to speak their mind in their dialect. This is, too, they aver is in supportive of the national government’s new education thrust in the first and primary levels, the K to 12 program where multi-lingual approach is espoused. Interacting with newsmen at the Express It At The Park in Leyte Park Hotel on Saturday, National Commission for Culture and Arts Commissioner and UP-Visayas Tacloban College Professor Joyce Dorado-Alegre, national artist for literature Dr. Bienvenido Lumbera,

and national multi-awarded poet and former NCCA Commissioner Prof. Ricardo De Ungria, expressly articulated on the positive repercussion of speaking in one’s own tongue. They even advanced their approval in allowing the use of street lingo as well as gay lingo in academic discussions if only this will aid the students better verbalize their thought on particular matter point of discussion. It also helps widen the acceptance of the dialect and Filipino as language of communication not only within the archipelago but across the globe. Notwithstanding the drift of their pursuit, the two male guests, who are both from Metro Manila, found it difficult to understand a question posed to them in the Waray-Waray dialect, thus necessitating the translation of the query into Tagalog dialect.

The “ERAP” Phenomenon Of all politicians in the local and national scenes, no one can equal what Joseph Ejercito Estrada has undergone. Among movie fans in late 70’s up to the 80’s, he was lionized for his leading roles in the action-packed movies he portrayed especially in the Robin Hood -like character in the popularly well – patronized box office movie Asyong Salonga and other movies that reaped awards for him. For 16 years from 1967-1986, he was an undefeated mayor of San Juan. According to reliable sources, he received no salary from

the local coffers. He was senator of the republic from 1987 – 1992 and in all those years as legislator his performance was unnoticed; if there were indeed, or maybe none could be identified as significant except a resolution about carabaos. He was convincingly elected as Vice President

from 1992-1998; and lo and behold he won a landslide victory for President but he served only an abbreviated term having been ousted by People Power II. The Sandiganbayan convicted him for plunder in September 12, 2007, and the same ruling after an appeal was filed, was upheld by the Supreme Court with a vote

of 15-0. However, the heavens smiled at his fate because after only a few weeks in jail he received a presidential pardon from GMA. A free man, he ran for President again in 2010, and oh what a spectacular and impressive performance he showed in the polls; he ranked second to the winner, now President Noynoy Aquino III, and he bested the early favorite during the campaign, Senator Manuel Villar and six others. Last May 2013, he was elected city mayor to page 5

The NIA

P-Noy lambasted the National Irrigation Administration (NIA) for its poor performance during the 50th anniversary celebration. Created in 1963, the NIA is a governmentowned and controlled corporation tasked with the development and operation of irrigation systems and provide irrigation services for the government’s agricultural programs. NIA generates revenues from irrigation fees but also re-

ceives subsidies from the national treasury. P-Noy criticized NIA’s lackluster performance such as bringing water to only 60% of its target of 81,170 hectares of new areas. He could not understand why NIA never met its target to irrigate new areas of farmlands when it has been getting 100% of its allocation from the national budget every year. He wanted to investigate NIA’s use of funds since failing to meet the targets would suggest

The “ERAP”.. the money given to them in full did not go to projects but elsewhere. P-Noy noted the report of the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) which covered about 23 years showed the budget allocated for NIA had all been obligated and disbursed. It would be more understandable if the failure to meet the target was sporadic but the bad thing was that this was the trend every year in the last 23 years. Irrigation is important for the country to improve agricultural output. Farmers must feel they were being cared for. The NIA should be investigated if there are irregularities committed in the implementation of its projects. We cannot just waste the taxpayers money.

Borne to be born

As the Reproductive Health Law is put to test in oral arguments at the Supreme Court, the lives of Filipinos and the generations yet to come are placed on the balance. Complicating issues regarding what reproductive health advocates deem as alarming indicators vis-àvis the high incidence of teenage pregnancies and pre-marital sex is confusing people. The statistics reveal that there is a significant increase in the cases of teenage pregnancies and pre-marital sex. The data is analyzed as being the cause of unwanted pregnancies that fall into the cold statistics of abortion. The premise is that abortion is being resorted to by people who bear unwanted children. Because the child is unwanted, the makers, meaning the couple who were instrumental in the bearing of the child, would opt to abort the pregnancy. It is hard to understand the suggested causal connection. While it may be true that abortion is a result of

the criminal decision of couples that do not want to bear the child, such is not always a product of teenage pregnancy or pre-marital sex. It is too presumptuous for such studies to conclude that teens who get pregnant never wanted to bear the child. Wanting to be pregnant is a decision not exclusive to adults for teens may have decided to bear as early as in their teens. This is so because God made us to be capable of reproduction as early as the teen years. This fact was supported by our civil laws that allowed marriage earlier than eighteen years before the advent of the New Family Code. Teenagers are already discerning although parental guidance is still very much needed. We cannot presuppose that those getting pregnant while still teen never wanted to be so for such may have been a deliberate decision by teen couples. Bearing during teens is under the present dispensation always a product of pre-marital sex for teen couples are barred to marry before reaching

the age of majority. But pre-marital sex is not the exclusive domain of teen people for many adults are bearing children without marriage. The children born out of wedlock are products of pre-marital sex but are never deemed unwanted by their unwed parents. It is hard to establish a causal connection between teenage pregnancies and pre-marital sex on one hand and abortion on the other hand. Raising the alarm over the high incidence of teenage pregnancies and pre-marital sex may have valid basis. It is a cause of concern as abortion is. But it is not quite right to connect abortion to teenage pregnancies and pre-marital sex just to promote the well-coated reproductive health advocacy. We had been bombarded with media blitz by the well funded programs that aim to curb population growth in the guise of promoting reproductive health. With abortion being portrayed as the end result of teenage pregnancies and pre-marital sex, solutions to curb abortion are directed at what reproductive health advocates point as the cause which is teenage pregnancies and premarital sex. Such cases can be reduced if not eliminated by introducing contraception to rid teenagers from getting pregnant. Avoiding

by some newsmen as indicator of palpable difficulty in grasping the message said or written in a dialect not known to the receiver of the message. This is a setback to what these literature gurus are resolute about. In Eastern Visayas, there are four WarayWaray dialects, and Cebuano and Boholano which comprise seventy percent of dialect widely spoken in the region. It is likewise considered that there are words that differ in meaning from one topography to another. Ungria and Lumbera pointed out, however, that this may be a setback for a while but in the long run, this will be eased once the people get to accept the semantics of the terminologies not word for word but understanding these words with differing meaning if taken in its total meaning.

THE COMISSIONING OF THE TWELVE THEN Jesus summoned his twelve disciples and gave them authority to expel unclean spirits and to cure sickness and disease of every kind. The names of the twelve apostles are these: first Simon, now known as Peter, and his brother Andrew; James, Zebedee’s son, and his brother John; Philip and Bartholomew, Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James, son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; Simon the Zealot Party member, and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him. Jesus sent these men on mission as the Twelve, after giving them the following instructions: “Do not visit pagan territory and do not enter a Samaritan town. Go instead after the lost sheep of the house of Israel. As you go, make this announcement: ‘The reign of God is at hand!’”

WHAT IS MISSING? Even when everything you want is on your table and everyone you love is there in your life, you still feel something missing; you are not able to name what is missing. If you could, you might be able to go somewhere to get it. You feel that something that is vital to you lies out of your reach in the unknown. The hunger to fill this vacuum drives people to accumulate possessions, but they are still disappointed, because this hunger is for the Divine. It is to satisfy this hunger that God sent his Son Jesus Christ. God once used Joseph to rescue his starving brothers and father from famine (Gen 42:19). In that Joseph was the foretype of Jesus who came to satisfy the hunger for God. When we see Jesus feeding the hungry and “curing all kinds of diseases” (Mt 10:1), we are reminded that these are his signs calling us to see in him the answer to our eternal hunger. God is not beyond Christ, but is in him. Therefore, let us not try to satisfy our hunger for the Divine away from Christ; If we do, this hunger will only drive us out of truth and shelter of love, setting us on a haunted journey, on a never-ending path in quest of something that is missing.

Popular Artists have given their name and voice to the bigger MOR Family like Toni Gonzaga, Multi-awarded actress and artist, Vice Ganda, Phenomenal Box Office Star, and Teen Heartthrob and OPM

Ambassador, Daniel Padilla. These 3 artists will be MOR’s National Ambassadors and endorsers for the year 2013. Locally, local rap artist and MOR Lokal Vocal Artist of the Year, Jaydi who gave Tacloban the hit song Ginbibiling Han Kasing-Kasing will be MOR Tacloban’s Local Ambassador with his song “Sikat” written for MOR Tacloban. With the integration of 101.9 into the MOR Name, expect lots of surprises not only from the MOR DJs but with Kapamilya Artists as well. (ABS-CBN)

forum as they professed their innocence on the charges levelled against them. “It is noteworthy that they were able to process the voucher for the rental of the office space without a perfected lease contract. The fact that the lease contract is not notarized by an authorized notary public and bears no signatures of the lessor, the contracting party involved in the lease contract agreement with the DAR Provincial Office,” Gualdrapa said in his two-page letter-complaint. He also alleged that the lease contract attached had an amount of P552,600 covering the period of January to December, 2008. However, at P7,675 per month rental, the questioned amount was good enough for six years of payment, Gualdrapa said. He also alleged that the lease contract attached had no voucher number with all

the pages of the voucher were marked as “paid even though the documents or the whole voucher is questionable and not complete, particularly the lease contract attached.” The building being occupied by the DAR-Samar is owned by the provincial government which is located just across the provincial capitol building in Catbalogan City. Gualdrapa also noted that the names of the lessor and the lessee of the contract should be the present officers or persons of the contracting parties involved when the payment is made and that only the current year office rental should be paid from the year’s current fund. The questioned contract bore the names of former Samar governor and now congressman Milagrosa Tan and Gregorio Fiel. Both were no longer the officials when the payment was made.(JOEY A.

Valte on documenting the journey of the BRP Ramon Alcaraz Last week, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) sent three Philippine Navy officers to the United States to join the crew of the BRP Ramon Alcaraz and document its journey from San Diego to the Philippines.

As part of this project—in partnership with the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office (PCDSPO)—they will share, through blogs and social media, their experiences aboard the newest ship of the Philippine fleet. Their articles will be uploaded through a live blog on the official website of the Philippine Navy (http://www.navy.mil.ph/ alcaraz/) and the blog of Lt. Jg. dela Cruz (http://allaboutedelacruz.com/), one of the officers recording the journey. Aside from the blogs, people may follow the official Twitter accounts of the BRP Alcaraz (@BRPRamonAlcaraz), Philippine Navy (@PN_Speak), the AFP (@ TeamAFP), and the account of Lt. dela Cruz (@erroldelacruz).
