DepED increases subsidy to private secondary schools BY SARWELL Q. MENIANO

PALO, Leyte – The Department of Education has increased its subsidy to private secondary schools to prevent the transfer of students to public schools, an official said.

Rep. Montejo confirms Jude Acidre’s resignation from An Waray party-list

TACLOBAN CITYThe second nominee of the party-list group An Waray has tendered his resignation from the group, which could mean giving up his congressional seat. This was confirmed by Rep. Neil Benedict Monte-

jo, who serves as the partylist’s national president, in a press conference called by him yesterday. Montejo said that Jude Acidre, who is the regional chairman of the An Waray, tendered his resignation last

May 23. Acidre made his resignation, which was to take effect “immediately,” through e-mail, Montejo said. “It was too sudden. I was very surprised on his decision to resign from the An Waray. But we respect

his decision and we accept his resignation with a heavy heart,” Montejo, who is to serve his second term, said. Montejo said that the reason cited by Acidre for his resignation was due to “pressing personal reason.” In a text message, Acidre declined to be interviewed. He, however, said that he would issue a statement “in time.” The third nominee of the party-list group is lawyer Victoria Noel, who is the elder sister of outgoing Rep. Florencio Noel who ran but lost as mayor of Tacloban. Asked if there was a pressure exerted for Acidre to give way in favor the group’s third nominee, Montejo denied this. “No, there was no pressure. It was his personal decision to resign from the group. But he is still very much welcome if ever he decides to return to the group,” Montejo said. Outgoing Rep. Noel re-

From 250,896 slots last school year under the education service contracting scheme, slots for freshmen secondary students has been increased to 310,709 slots for school year 2013-2014 nationwide. “Slots for Region 8 will depend on request and qualification of schools to avail this subsidy,” said DepEd Assistant Regional Director Rebecca Ragrag.

In the last school year, 28,783 private school students and teachers enrolled in 96 schools avail the subsidy. The total funding assistance is P143.91 million. The scheme is under the Government Assistance to Students and Teachers in Private Education. The subsidy is P6,500 per student in participating schools outside the National Capital Region (NCR) and P10,000 per student in private schools in the NCR. The parents shoulder the balance in excess of the P6,500 subsidy. “We have increased the tuition fee subsidy to private schools this year. The purpose is for to page 2

PRO8 condemns NPA ambush in Samar

CAMP KANGEON, Palo, Leyte -- The ambush on a police patrol car on Thursday afternoon in Samar province is another cowardly and treacherous act by New People’s Army (NPA) communists-terrorists and a clear violation of international humanitarian law on the use of landmines, said the region’s top cop. “This is clearly an evil and terroristic act! We will pursue these lawless elements and bring them to the bar of justice,” said Police Regional Office 8 (PRO8) director PCSupt. Elmer Ragadio Soria as he ordered pursuit opera-

tions against the rebels who ambushed his men past 1:00 P.M. on Thursday. The police regional director informed that communist rebels set off a roadside bomb and opened fire on a police patrol car carrying members of Paranas Municipal Police Station along the Maharlika Highway in Brgy. Tagbayaon, Jiabong town in Samar. Paranas police chief Chief Insp. Doughlas Antonio Eloja, and his men PO3 Cayetano Abantao, PO2 Romulo Tabique and PO2 Rodrigo Agbon Jr, were to page 2

4 policemen survive NPA-staged ambush in Samar town CATBALOGAN CITY -- The chief of police of the Paranas municipal police station and his three police officers were able to escape death from a broad day light ambush staged by undetermined number of New People’s Army in the vicinity of Jiabong town, some 11 kilometers from this city, Thursday afternoon. Army and police authorities identified the survivors as Police Chief Inspector Doughlas Antonio Eloja, the chief of police, and his men PO3 Cayetano Abantao, PO2 Romulo Tabique Jr and PO2 Rodrigo Agbon Jr who were on board a Hilux patrol vehicle of Paranas MPS on their way to Catbalogan City. Reports reaching the Samar Police Provincial Office (SPPO) here said the group was traversing the Maharlika Highway along Tagbayaon village when ambushed past 1p.m. by the armed rebels using improvised bombs planted in the national highway. Samar police provincial director Superintendent Eusebio Mejos said the patrol vehicle was partly hit and the policemen were simultaneously peppered with volleys of fire coming from a hill where the ambushers took position. The four cops was unhurt and managed to fire back at the insurgents. Their service vehicle however was slightly damaged with its front shields broken and two tires blown up. Police response teams from neighboring towns were unable to proceed early to the scene of incident for fear that a blocking force had also been set up against possible reinforcements.

Joined by the scout rangers from the 8th Infantry Division (8ID), a group of specially trained policemen is now tracking the escape route of the rebels who immediately fled after the failed assassination to policemen in Samar province. A hot pursuit operation is now ongoing while an investigation is being conducted by the Jiabong police Scene of the Crime Operatives and the Samar Police Provincial Office (SPPO). The attack was the second major offensive launched by the NPAs three days after their successful killing of seven commandos of the elite Philippine National Police Special Action Force and wounded seven others in an ambush in Allacapan, May 27 morning. Earlier, the military condemned the continued use of landmines by the New People’s Army (NPA). Brig. General Gerardo Layug, commander of the Army’s 8ID, said the use of landmines is a violation of Republic Act 9851 otherwise known as Crime Against International Law. He said this is a clear violation of the paragraph 15, article II of the Comprehensive Agreement on the Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law (CARHIHL). “It is prohibited because such attack will cause incidental loss of life or injury to civilians. “I call on everyone to condemn this senseless act of violence against our troops and our people,” Layug said in an earlier statement. To recall, the local NPAs launched a landmine attack at the villages of Catarman Northern Samar which resulted to the death of eight (8) policemen in August 2010. The Efren Martires

Command of the New People’s Army in Eastern Visayas owned the responsibility on the ambush and the use of landmines. All eight, including the town deputy police chief, died on the spot, some of them have lost their limbs due to the landmines. They were also shot one by one. Four months later, another landmine attacked by staged by the NPA Catubig town in Northern Samar against the elements of 63rd Infantry Battalion but which resulted to the death of a 9-year-old boy and a soldier. In July 2011, a soldier was killed when a group of 60 rebels ambushed a military convoy in Samar’s Paranas town using also improvised landmines that crippled the trucks that carries the soldiers. Last year, a simultaneous attacks staged by the rebels occurred in the various parts of Samar which resulted to the death of some troops and innocent civilians. It may also be recalled that on March 5, 2012, the 8th ID troops discovered the biggest production of improvised bombs in a secluded NPA explosives factory in Paranas town

students to have access in learning centers not owned by the government,” she said. Ragrag admitted that with increasing fees in private schools, some students may transfer to public school, wherein education is free. This situation worsens the recurring concern of classroom and teacher shortage in public schools. In the last school year, enrollment in private Kin-

The Human Rights Office is already preparing to file criminal charges against the NPA rebels for these blatant violations of IHL provisions,” the army general said. At press time, the NPA in Samar has not owned yet the Thursday’s ambush on Paranas cops but earlier denied they have used landmines in their previous attacks to government forces. “The NPA uses command-detonated explosives, which are manually set off against a defined target and thus allowed in war. The NPA did not and has never used anti-personnel land mines which automatically explode when triggered by the victim, and is thus banned under international humanitarian law for causing needless casualties,” said Karlos Manuel, spokesman of EMC, in a statement.

The policemen were able to maneuver towards the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) facility at nearby Brgy. Lagundi, Catbalogan City, and escaped death. The patrol car was slightly damaged caused by shrapnel and bullet shots. Troops set up roadblocks and dispatched reinforcements to track down the assailants, said Soria. The incident occurred three days after an ambush carried out by NPA rebels in a far-flung village in Allacapan, Cagayan that left eight police commandos of the PNP’s elite unit, the Special Action Force, dead and seven others wounded. While saddened with the treacherous attack on the law enforcers, Soria said government forces have heightened their pursuit operations against the perpetrators. In Eastern Visayas, the most notorious barbaric act staged by NPA terrorists in re-

cent years was on August 21, 2010 in a remote area of Sitio Elembo, Brgy. Imelda in Catarman, Northern Samar when eight policemen, now known as “Catarman 8”, were mercilessly executed by the communists. The lawmen were on their way to investigate the killing of a village official perpetrated by the rebels when their patrol car was hit by a landmine. After the explosion, the NPAs also peppered the policemen with bullets; most were shot on their head, ensuring their death. Not contented with the slaughter, the rebels also took the policemen’s personal belongings like wallets and even their uniforms, to include their service firearms. (INSP. ROMUEL NACAR)

2 last winning councilor bets in Calbayog City proclaimed

TACLOBAN CITY— The Commission on Elections (Comelec) has proclaimed the last two winning councilors in the second city legislative district of Calbayog City after the conduct of special elections in one of its far-flung villages last Wednesday. Atty. Veronico Petalcorin, Comelec-8 acting regional director, said the Calbayog City Board of Election Canvassers has proclaimed Rogelio Casurao and Julius Mancol as fifth and sixth members of the city council, respectively. Casurao and Mancol

were reelectionist councilors. They will be respresenting the city’s second legislative district. They joined Alex Gelera, Cesar Sabenicio, Aquilina Sabi and Darwin Kenneth Irigon who were already proclaimed by the Comelec last May 18. “The special elections in Barangay Higasaan was generally peaceful. We requested more police and military personnel to provide security in the area,” Petalcorin said. Brgy. Higasaan had one clustered precinct with 218 registered voters. Calbayog had about 104,689 registered voters and

is politically subdivided into two districts—OquendoTinambacan composed of 73 barangays and Calbayog with 84 barangays. The results of the May 13 elections in Calbayog was affected by the failure of elections in Barangay Higasaan, with 218 voters found to be crucial in determining the final votes of the last three seats. The Comelec has earlier proclaimed the six winning councilors in the first district—Raymund Uy, Sylvan Josef Ayong, Rosely Mestiola, Jocelyn Tan, Arturo Pasacas and Billy Martires. (REYAN L.

SSS to open offices on Saturdays of June for ‘kasambahay’ registration

Social Security System (SSS) branches nationwide will open for business on four consecutive Saturdays in June to enable household employers and domestic workers or ‘kasambahay’, such as maids, nursemaids or yaya, gardeners, cooks and laundry women, to register with SSS. SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Emilio de Quiros, Jr. said all its branches will be open to issue social security (SS) numbers for domestic workers as well as household employer ID numbers on June 8, 15, 22 and 29 to facilitate their mandatory SSS membership as provided under the Kasambahay Law and the Social Security Law. “As active SSS members, domestic workers realize the fruits of their hard work in the form of SSS benefits for sickness, maternity, disability, retirement and death. SSS also helps household employers from solely shouldering the burden when their househelp faces financial difficulties,” he added. The Kasambahay Law, or Republic Act No. 10361, was signed into law on January 19, 2013 to ensure the social protection of household employees under various government agencies, which include the SSS, Philippine Health Insurance Corporation and Pag-IBIG Fund. To get an SS number, domestic workers, including family drivers who are considered household em-

ployees under the SSS charter, must fill out and submit the Personal Record Form (SSS Form E-1) to any SSS branch, along with a photocopy of any of the primary documents such as the birth or baptismal certificate, driver’s license, passport, Professional Regulation Commission card or seaman’s book. Those without any primary document can give two secondary documents, both citing their name and at least one indicating their birthdate. SSS branches provide a comprehensive list of accepted secondary documents such as the ATM card, bank passbook, marriage contract, NBI or police clearance, voter’s ID or postal ID card. “Only the Form E-1 and a photocopy of the supporting documents need to be submitted, but they should present to us the original copy for authentication purposes,” de Quiros said. “Without the documents, they will be issued a number that may be used for paying contributions and reporting for SSS coverage but not for availment of benefits and loans. They will attain permanent SSS membership status upon submission of these required documents.” To secure a Household Employer ID Number, the employer only needs to fill out and submit the Employer Registration Form (SSS Form R-1). Existing household employers who still use their personal SS numbers

in paying the contributions of their domestic workers will be given their Household Employer ID Number during their branch visit, via email or mail. Household employers reporting workers for SSS coverage must submit the Employment Report Form (SSS Form R1-A), the Specimen Signature Card (SSS Form L-501), and the SSS Form E-1 of household employees with no prior SSS coverage. De Quiros said the domestic worker’s effective date of coverage, which is the same as the date of employment, marks the start of the respective household employer’s obligation to remit monthly contributions for the household employee. “If the effective date of coverage is earlier than the date of registration, the household employer must submit a ‘Statement of Monthly Salaries’ received by the domestic worker starting from the date of employment indicated in the SSS Form R1-A,” he said. “This will be the basis for the computation of the accruing contributions that the household employer has to settle.” Apart from registration services, SSS offices with branch tellering facilities will also accept contribution payments of household employers during the four selected Saturdays. SSS forms are available at SSS branches and may be downloaded from the SSS website (www. sss.gov.ph). (PR)

Palo NHS implements its special program in journalism TACLOBAN CITY – Thye Palo National High School (Palo NHS) in Palo, Leyte is one of the 15 regional pilot high schools in the country to implement its Special Program in Journalism (SPJ) starting next school year. Palo NHS is the only school tapped in the region and one of the three schools in the Visayas region as SPJ pilot learning centers. “This is a big challenge for the school. I am sure the school and students is ready for this challenge. There will be special training for teachers involved in this curriculum, although we are waiting for the details of this program,” said regional director Luisa Yu of the Department of Education (DepEd) in a phone interview.

Palo NHS is the first high school in the municipality of Palo. It was established during the term of Representative Cirilo Roy Montejo in 1993. Based on the DepEd directive of the trainingworkshop for teachers and principal of the chosen schools, it sought to equip the educator-participants with functional understanding of the SPJ curriculum documents; establish concrete knowledge on how the SPJ Curriculum Guide and Teaching Guide can be best utilized during the course implementation, and identify potential problems and/or issues which need to be addressed that may have an effect on the enforcement of the program. During the National Schools Press Conference

(NSPC) 2013 held in Ormoc City last April, Education Secretary Armin Luistro has also expressed the plans of his department to establish a Journalism Academy to help and enhance the journalism skills of the high school students who has inclination of winding up as professional media practitioners in the future. The other schools in the Visayas who are chosen as pilot areas for this special program are Oton National High School in Iloilo City (Western Visayas Region) and Cebu City Science High School in Cebu City (Central Visayas region). DepEd-9 chief on curriculum Alejandrito Eman cannot be reached on comments and preparations of the school for this development. (VICKY C. ARNAIZ)

PPP & party-list org could answer lack of classrooms in Eastern Visayas

T

he lack of classrooms in Eastern Visayas as announced by the assistant regional director of the Department of Education is one of the problems that will curtail the mandate of the agency. The need for 1,848 more classrooms this coming school opening in June 2013 would affect the learning capacity of school children and the performance of schools and teachers. Added to this hitch are setbacks that the children themselves experience at home and in the community such as, family problems; poverty and environmental concerns. The government has to do something about this with possible public private partnerships. While it is intent on solving literacy concerns through the conditional cash transfer program, it has to look into the other side of the problem which is the lack of educational facilities especially on classrooms. A strong public-private partnership has to work in solving the problem. In Region 8, the

Tacloban Filipino Chinese Chamber of Commerce has been very prolific in donating classrooms even outside the city. Other civic organizations could be encouraged to do the same. But for all its intent and purposes, party-list organizations could also contribute in solving the problem. If these cannot be removed, they might as well be tasked in part to build school facilities. Its huge pork barrel of almost P1 billion in nine years would have covered up such shortage. It would have bridged the gap and could have made these party lists fruitful and no doubt, performing. Talking about party-lists organizations, this huge number of deficiency would not have reached this high if the party- list, An Waray started building classrooms in 2004. Its second advocacy which is on “PAARALAN” or SCHOOL whose document describes it as follows, An Waray party-list believes that eduto page 9

The long awaited peace among Sto. Niño Feast revelers One of the best definitions I learned on peace comes from the internet that says, “peace is a state of harmony characterized by the lack of violence, conflict behaviors and the freedom from fear of violence. Commonly understood as the absence of hostility, peace also suggests the existence of healthy or newly healed interpersonal or international relationships, prosperity in matters of social or economic welfare, the establishment of equality, and a working political order that serves the true interests of all.” I remember such definition because today is the first day of June, the month of the Sangyaw and the Pintados

and Kasadyaan Festivals in honor of the Infant Jesus, the Sto. Niño. In my younger days, the fiesta of Tacloban which comes every 30th of the month was always welcomed with jubilation, one of the most enjoyable, festive and much-lookedforward-to event of the year aside from Christmas. It was

a time of colored and beautifully clad “pastores” with their tambourines and old men with home-made musical instruments serenading houses. June was a season of “baratillos”, all around the city, newly opened stores in tents and temporary kiosks are opened offering trinkets

and things that could be bought at cheaper prices. We remember farmhands coming to the city with their small children going to these “baratillos” and “carnival” and “peryahan.” We envy them as they are free to roam around and see the longest civic parade of the year; coming back to the house with balloons and small toys and trinkets. Later, these usual sights and scenes turned chaotic and frenzied where everyone insists on their own, neglecting the need to listen, to respect, to understand and be friendly.

When the economic lords over all other aspects

A priest once asked newsmen about their view on these two schools of thought which although are generally incongruent could be analyzed altogether towards a common drift. Reciting a passage in the Bible, he elicited comment on this word of Jesus Christ, “It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven,” in contrast to or compared with the popular experience that one could better attain spiritual upliftment if he has more to spend or give for his spiritual obligations. Few took the challenge to task and shared their respective

opinion. In all due reverence to Christ Jesus, Whom they all said could never be wrong in any of His words, they articulated their thought corresponding to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church or any Christian church at that. As Christ warned His disciples and the people milling around him while he was preaching in that part of Judea east of the Jordan River (in Mark 10 and Matthew 19), He emphatically said, “It is terribly hard for rich people to get into the kingdom of heaven! In fact, it’s easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to get into

God’s kingdom.” They all opined in same crux: that the wealthy man, because of their wealth and being pre-occupied with material concerns to keep his wealth, put Christ aside, believing that he does not need God in his life anymore and besides in the end and before he could breathe his last, he could just confess and be sorry for his sins. This wealthy man, for allowing his economic concerns lord over all the other aspects of his life, or worse putting the spiritual concern at the least and the last, is veering away from the true essence of life – that is to serve God or be holy in this life on earth. This discussion in truth happened during the Holy Retreat of the Media held on May 26 at the Palo Chancery held in line with the Jubilee of Mass Media and Social Communications in the whole month of May as a part of the year-long celebration of the Diamond Jubilee of the Diocese of Palo.

Declined invitation

“You’re skipping the Philippine Press Institute’s conference this June?” asked Daily Guardian of Iloilo editor Francis Allan Angelo.. “Why”? Barring martial law interruptions, we’ve attended such gatherings since 1964. The late publisher Joaquin Roces then summoned me to his Manila Times office . “What do you know about press institutes?,” Chino asked, twirling his trademark cigar. “Nothing,” we replied. “Good. Next week, you fly to Columbia University in New York . At the American Press Institute there they’ll teach you the ropes. See us when you get back.” “Who is us?” , we asked before stepping out his office. “All of metropolitan Manila publishers,” Chino replied..” We’ve agreed to set up a

press institute.” Of the PPI founding members, Manila Chronicle’s Oscar Lopez still scales mountains today.. But others are now gone: Chino and his brother, Don Ramon Roces, Philippine News Service’s Osmundo Abad Santos and Hans Menzi of Manila Bulletin.

Rev. Fr. Oscar Lorenzo was the retreat master and the same person who solicited reaction from newsmen, instead of him being hurled with questions. As a former educator and in fact then rector of the Sacred Heart Seminary, he enlivened the retreat with getting comments from the participants while he discussed about the theme “This is the Will of God, your holiness” (the Diamond Jubilee theme). When it was my turn to convey my response, I opined contrariwise. Fully accepting the truth that Christ Jesus is abiding in wisdom, I supposed that Christ does not mean to exclude all rich men from entering God’s kingdom in a strict sense. For me, Lord Jesus made a generalization of the kind of person who could and could not enter the kingdom of God. Quoting part of the statement earlier imparted to me by Fr. Amadeo “Saca” Alvero, when “your work or action leads people to praise God and make them holy, the Holy Spirit is at work.” For me, the work of the Holy Spirit is Christ at work for one’s sanctification that will somehow make him worthy of a place in the kingdom of heaven. Even if a person is wealthy, if he uses his wealth for God’s glory, as I stated, I do not see that as hindrance for that rich man to enter God’s kingdom. Conversely, if a poor person does not do anything to merit the kingdom of God, he also is barred from entering it. Fr. Oscar sought the media practitioners’ reactions as he tackled about the strata or aspects of developmental concerns of humans which he layered from one onwards that is: economic, social, cultural, political and finally spiritual. As he initially explained, the economic aspect affects all the rest including spiritual. Nevertheless as he unveiled his thoughts about this, he explained (let me state it in gist) that if a person allows his economic condition to influence all liked anyway, and the good fortune to run into the ones I do—and the eyesight to tell the difference.” Indeed, I squint when reading this prayer or looking at computer screens. “When the eyes grow dim, / When the bones creak/ When the knees go bad/ I simply remember my favorite things/ And then I don’t feel so bad,”

to page 9

other aspects of his life, including his spiritual life, disregarding Christ, this could deter him from entering the kingdom of heaven. On the contrary, if his spiritual life and his relationship with Christ take precedence over all other aspects of his life especially the economic, that is Christ above all else, then this being wealthy or rich will not bar him from entering God’s kingdom. In summation he said that just as earlier posited that the economic aspect

5

affects all others, the spiritual or moral dimension can equally affect all other aspects. Likening to corruption the control of the economic aspect of one’s development over all others including the spiritual dimension, he exhorted “to avoid doing wrong or committing sin, we do not dichotomize (separate) these aspects of our life.” Finally leaving these words, he ended the retreat with this caveat, “Be conscious that God is watching all the time.”

May 31, 2013 – Friday Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Zep 3:14-18 [or Rom 12:9-16]; Is 12; Lk 1:39-56

MARY VISITS ELIZABETH Mary set out and traveled to the hill country in haste to a town of Judah, where she entered Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice and said, “Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. And now does this happen to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled.” And Mary said: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior. For he has looked upon his handmaid’s lowliness; behold, from now on will all ages call me blessed. The Mighty One has done great things for me and holy is his name. His mercy is from age to age to those who fear him. He has shown might with his arm, dispersed the arrogant of mind and heart. He has thrown down the rulers from their thrones but lifted up the lowly. The hungry he has filled with good things; the rich he has sent away empty. He has helped Israel his servant, remembering his mercy, according to his promise to our fathers, to Abraham and to his descendants forever.” Mary remained with her about three months and then returned to her home.

VISITATION The Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary to Elizabeth was an ordinary event. It is not like events such as the Immaculate Conception or the Assumption. But through an ordinary event, extraordinary things happened. First of all, Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit; secondly, she exclaimed the words, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb” which form part of the “Hail Mary’. Thirdly, John the Baptist was also filled with the Holy Spirit. Fourthly, Mary uttered the hymn, “the Magnificat” which forms part of the liturgy of the hours in the evening prayer of the Church. Thus through ordinary events, extraordinary things can happen. This is true also in our own lives. Through our ordinary actions, we can bring grace, peace and help to others. One of the invocations in Mary’s litany is “Ark of the Covenant.” Like the Ark of the Covenant of old, Mary brings God’s presence into the lives of other people. As David danced before the Ark, John the Baptist leapt for joy. As the Ark helped to untie 12 tribes of Israel by being placed in David’s capital, so Mary has the power to unite all Christians in her Son. At times, devotion to Mary may have occasioned some divisiveness, but we can hope that authentic devotion will lead all to Christ and therefore to one another. (HIS WORD IS LIFE by Vima Dasan, S.J., published by Paulines. Visit us at www.paulines.ph or at Paulines Media Center, Real St., Tacloban City, Tel. # 321-3195) Sower’s Thought: “To exclude Mary from the apostolate [and from one’s life] would be to ignore one of the most essential parts of God’s plan of redemption. It would be to deprive oneself of Mary’s allpowerful entreaty; it would be to ignore the fact that, having once given Jesus Christ by means of Mary, God no longer changes his method, style or design. Mary generated the Head, Mary generates the members.” –Blessed James Alberione, SSP, S.Th.D., Founder of the Pauline Family

A lot of people were happy with the news. To most, it means hope for peace and love to reign over the city once more. Before the election, there were many people including pastors and priests who prayed for protection and blessings for the city and its people. God has answered the prayers; more than anything else He answered the prayer for unity and harmony. Everyone hopes for the peace and unity to last. It is hoped that all concerned groups will appreciate the new found calm. Nothing happens by accident, the newly elected leaders have been chosen to complement each other and become a team for a purpose. Only God knows His purpose but the people of God are drawn to it, they know who is at the helm. People expect that there will be no more bickering and squabbles.

Now the Kasadyaan Festival that stands for jubilation and euphoria can exude such during the festivities. The Pintados that symbolizes the beginnings of our people, their culture and body arts and color, will really be able to showcase the best, the most colorful and the most beautiful body arts that we were known for; finally, the Sangyaw festival that is anchored on the proclamation of our faith and our being Christians, will be able to show the light of Jesus and our goodness as Christians to everyone. With the three festival groups joining forces, let us hope for a merrier Fiesta celebration. We hope that each group will equally take charge of the responsibilities and obligations that come with any celebration. With the new found unity, may the groups also be sensitive enough to take on the responsibilities in helping the Church, and the expenses when sponsoring an event or throwing a party.

Like Bob Hope, “I don’t feel old.” Like him, “I don’t feel anything until noon. Then it is time for a nap.” Farmers in Guatemala have a proverb that says: “Everyone is the age of their hearts.” Oliver Wendell Holmes converted that axiom into a mathematical formula. “Old age,” he insisted, “is 15 years older than I am.” This jurist would sigh, when he saw young co-eds traipsing through Harvard yard: “Oh, to be 70 again.” Nowadays, one discuss the challenge that senatorial race topnotcher Grace Poe with less vehemence than our next physical therapy exercise. Our high school class Romeo confesses:: “I can do without sex but not without glasses.” He adds wistfully: “Aging is for sissies.” Our family doctor interjects, after every two explanatory paragraphs, with: “However, when you’re not so young anymore…”

Or “You have to adjust with the years…” Eventually, all reach a point “when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it,” we’re told. When does that happen? When former classmates are so “gray, wrinkled and bald, they don’t recognize you. We belong to a fading generation whose numbers relentlessly dwindle with the years.. We wish the young journalists luck. We hope they’ll never have to look, as we did, at the business end of a Japanese (or if the Scaraborough reef controversy intensifies, a Chinese) bayonet. Some of our agecohorts were slapped around by Makapilis or Filipino quislings. Still others were confronted with massproduced martial law arrest warrants, bearing the signature of then Defense Minister Juan Ponce Enrile. We’ve lived long enough to see—and

cheer—the same Juan Ponce Enrile emerge as the steely principled chair of the Senate impeachment court. But a seriously flawed memoir and the election trouncing of his son makes one wonder where JPW slumo further from here? “Seventy is the sum of our years,” the Psalmist writes.. “Eighty if we are strong.” That passage of time brings a gradual but stunning revelation: In life, there is one unchanging constant Without fail, “God’s love always rises before each dawn.” We can only mumble: “Thank you.” That is all. Many youngsters today still follow the Filipino custom of “mano po” or kissing hands of elders. Whenever one reaches to “mano po” we hold back, recalling what King Lear told Gloucester : “Let me wipe it first. It smells of mortality.” ( Email: juan_mercado77@yahoo.com )

375 farmers graduate from UoA on rice postharvest, mechanization TACLOBAN CITY – At least 375 farmers graduated from the University-on-the-Air on Rice Postharvest and Mechanization, a strategy of the Department of Agriculture to curb rice production losses. The graduation rites held at the Leyte Park Gymnassium on Wednesday was joined by graduating farmer students from Leyte, Samar and Eastern Samar. Class valedictorian Felipe Agero from Tacloban City said that open learning in radio is very convenient for farmers since they can learn something right in their place for free. “We can attend classes while working or lying down and without spending money for transportation. I am hoping to pass all this knowledge on postharvest and mechanization to the younger generation,” Agero said. The agriculture expects that new graduates will be able to reduce postharvest losses by a minimum of 5% starting this month.
