P10.00 IN TACLOBAN

Local candidates warned on use of gov’t resources for political gains BY SARWELL Q. MENIANO, Correspondent

TACLOBAN CITY – The Commission on Elections (Comelec) reminded local officials seeking reelection in the May 2013 polls not to “overuse” government resources to advance their candidacy.

Comelec Assistant Regional Director Veronico Petalcorin said that officials taking advantage of their post to achieve political gains is inevitable but they have to

observe limits once the campaign period starts for local candidates. “Before March 29, 2013 they are not considered candidates but they have to be mindful of us-

ing government resources,” Petalcorin added. Campaign of local candidates officially starts on March 29 but candidates are strongly to page 3

Village official questions cease order of DENR on mangrove cutting TACLOBAN CITY—An official of Barangay Campoyong in Guiuan, Eastern Samar has questioned the validity and propriety over the lifting of the cease and desist order (CDO) issued by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in relation to preliminary activities for a housing project being implemented by the National Housing Authority (NHA). In a letter to DENR regional office, village councilor Dominadora Odeña raised four issues which the agency needs to address.

Odeña stated that the CDO was lifted despite the absence of an environmental compliance certificate; that some 1, 527 mangrove trees were cut as evidenced by an inventory conducted by the DENR; that the presidential proclamation reserving area as NHA resettlement site does not automatically make the area an alienable or disposable land; and that ecological disaster may happen as a result of cutting the mangroves in the area.

Respeto at pangunawa, hiling ni Chiz sa pamilya ni Heart Hiwalay ang personal kong buhay sa trabaho ko pero pilit pinapasok ang personal kong buhay sa trabaho ko. Hangga’t maaari, ayaw ko sanang magsalita tungkol dito pero nadadamay na ang mga anak ko. Medyo may isip na sila at ayaw kong dumating sa puntong kakantyawan sila ng mga kaklase nila tungkol dito. Nadadamay na rin ang Nanay ko. Kamamatay pa lang ng Tatay ko at parang pinapalabas na hindi ako pinalaki ng maayos at hindi rin akong tinuruan ng magandang asal. Pilit kong iniintindi at inuunawa ang mga magulang ni Heart pero hindi na tama ang ginagawa nila sa akin. Hindi na rin tama ang ginagawa nila sa amin. Hindi na rin tama ang ginagawa nila sa anak nila. Tatay din ako, parent din ako, mahal ko din ang mga anak ko. Pero hindi ako mandadamay, mananakit at maninira ng kapwa sa ngalan ng pagmamahal ko sa aking anak. At kung mayroon man akong deperensya kung saka-sakali sa mga anak ko, hindi ko isasapubliko. Hindi ako magpapa-presscon, hindi ako mandadamay ng ibang tao. Bago nangyari ang lahat ng ito, masaya at maayos at walang problema ang samahan at relasyon at ugnayan namin ni Heart. Mabait siya, matalino, masayahin, masarap kausap.At malaki syempre ang epekto nito sa kanya. Nasasaktan siya, nalulungkot, at hindi natin siguro masisisi ‘pag ganun ang nararamdaman niya. Tama ang sinabi ng isang kolumnista, ma-

layo naman talaga na mas mayaman at mas maraming pera ang mga magulang niya kumpara sa akin, tama din marahil ang sinabi ng magulang niya: hindi ko kayang tustusan ‘yung luho , ‘yung buhay na binibigay nila sa anak nila. Pero kung ano man ang meron ako, sapat ‘yun para sa akin. Pero kahit gaano karami siguro ang pera nila, hindi naman siguro lisensya ‘yun para maliitin ang sinuman, o yurakan yung katauhan ko at naapektuhan din ang pamilya ko. Wala akong ipinakita o ginawang masama kay Heart, sa mga magulang niya . Alam nila ‘yun, lahat ng ito, lahat ng ginawa at sinabi nila, lahat ng gagawin pa nila, o sasabihin pa nila, iisa lang naman ang dahilan, rason at puno’t dulo, nanggaling naman sa kanila: gusto nila kaming paghiwalayin, gusto nilang maghiwalay kami. Nasasaktan si Heart dito, mahal na mahal kasi

niya ang kanyang mga magulang pero nasa edad na si Heart. Walang pwedeng magdikta, manghimasok sinuman kung ano ang gagawin at hindi niya gagawin at kung amo ang sasabihin at hindi niya sasabihin, may sarili na siyang pag-iisip at kaisipan . Sana kung ano man ang pasya niya, igalang nating lahat, pati ako. Mahal ko siya pero maliwanag naman na matindi itong pinag-

dadaanan namin. Masakit siyempre, sana huwag nang sawsawan ng ibang tao. Sana huwag nang gamitin ng ibang tao pa ito dahil may mga taong nasasaktan. Sana hindi gamitin ito dahil panahon ng halalan ngayon, pero maging ganun pa man, maski ako na, huwag na lang siya. Sorry kung kailangan kong magsalita, paumanhin kung kailangan kong magpaliwanag ngayon pero medyo sobra na rin, at sana tama na. Sana kung ano man ang gusot na ito maayos at sana hindi na masyadong madami pang madamay at masaktan sa mga nangyayari. Dalangin ko sana malagpasan itong pagsubok na aming dinadaanan, ng aming samahan. Siguro panahon na lang ang makakapagsabi. Maraming salamat.

councilor assured the public that he will not resort to character assassination just to win the elections. “We would not do character assassination in our campaign; instead we’ll continue on our drive to help alleviate the lives of our people in the communities by providing the necessary service that they intend to receive from a particular public servant they voted for,” he said. Yaokasin said that instead of making personal attack against his rivals, he would focus on his platform as to how improve the lives of the people of the city. “Personal attack has no place on my campaign. We just have to continue what

we have started, the moment I start serving the city as a councilor since 2004,” Yaokasin added. Moreover, he said that his priority concern is the education and the livelihood aspect of the Taclobanon. Yaokasin’s family has been donating school buildings and books in the city. Among the beneficiaries of the benevolence of the Yaokasin family were San Fernando Elementary School and the De la Cruz Memorial Elementary School at V&G subdivision. (REY GERILLA GRADO)

Culpability of Leadership

T

here is sense in the call of UP students for the top guns of UP to step down from their high pedestals. They were useless in protecting the rights of their students; they were inutile as top officials of the prime educational facility of the country. They should have known that the policies they were referring to when they talked to Kristel and her parents were unjust and unreasonable. The “no late payment” policy is anti-poor, unchristian and anti-humanitarian. It should not have been in placed in the “people’s school.” Whoever espoused it must answer as it belies the constitutional right of citizens to education. It is not only the UP Manila Chancellor who must face the axe; the UP president must also be made to answer notwithstanding the independence of each unit. Washing hands will only make the issue murky and the pain more painful. Losing a child who had to commit suicide due to frustration and setback on one’s dreams is

hard to accept; not because of the hardships encountered but at the thought that as parents you failed to stand up to your child’s dreams. The pain gets harder to bear because as parents who are responsible for the child’s needs, you could do nothing to prevent it. The UP system is not the only school in the country that allows the “no late payment” policy. This must be tackled by the national government and the President must look into this problem soonest. We do not want others to follow Kristel. Promising students must be given support by the state. It must create a suitable program that will ensure needy, but promising students to pursue their dreams. Each state-run university must have a scholarship or study loan program that will make poor but deserving students to continue their studies without being embarrassed by forced leave of absence policies or being shunned to page 5

Summer clean-up drive Nothing is too small a sacrifice for love of the City that has nurtured you all your life. It is a very small action but its effect and outcome is so enormous and massive. The cleanup drive of the officials and employees of the City Government of Tacloban this summer starting today and every Saturday thereafter until May4 is a tribute to the City, a way of thanking it for the many opportunities it has brought to people who have chosen to live and work here. It is in keeping with their Pledge of Commitment of the I Love Tacloban movement four years ago. It is in a way, a show of support to the programs of the City government on Limpyo Tacloban and Councilor Cristina Romualdez pet project,

Tacloban Clean and Green. The idea came after people observed that many of us just take for granted the maintenance of cleanliness and sanitation in the city. Many people visit the place every day and it is sometimes embarrassing that most of us cannot restrain our impulse to throw gar-

bage and litter around. We see people throwing their wastes anywhere. Families also leave kitchen refuse and other domestic wastes outside their houses to be scattered by scavengers. Worst, when a Taclobanon wantonly does this thing in public and visitors see and emulate them; how could

we set good examples and exact from transients to obey our ordinances on anti-littering? In the 70’s there were already cities known to be cleanest all over the country. When I was a student and we were sent to attend a seminar in Murcia, Negros Occidental, we were in awe of the cleanliness of the Bacolod wet market at 6:00 P.M. We saw how the city government maintained zones or sectors in the market place. It was awe-inspiring to observe how the people, vendors and big-time merchants all worked hard to maintain the cleanliness of their city.

The week ahead

The entire Roman Catholic Church across the globe ushers in what is called a very important and most meaningful event in its liturgical calendar – the Holy Week. In the next seven days the faithful are called on to more seriously veer their focus on the passion and death of Christ Jesus, while the 8th day, which is a Sunday is the glorious day – the Easter Sunday, when the passion and death of Jesus was given fuller significance, His resurrection, the triumph of His Cross. In these seven days, beginning tomorrow Palm Sunday, the purpose of Christ’s becoming one

with humanity is once again recalled. The week is occasionally marked with deep reflections and remembrance of the ordeal that Christ Jesus went through for the salvation of man, and so that man will again be reunited with his Creator, God The Father. Various parishes, offices, establishments and institutions hold the Lenten Recollection or Retreat for a more profound undestanding of the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Christ. Some schools even have the recollection as a requisitie for graduation. Here in Tacloban City, the Sto. Niño Parish will have the famous Once Upon a Saint TV program

host Bernard Factor-Cañaberal as this week’s retreat master. The parish’s Lenten Retreat is scheduled on March 25 (Monday) to March 27 (Wednesday) at 7 o’clock in the evening at the Sto. Niño Church, according to Rev. Fr. Amadeo Alvero, a pariochial vicar of the Sto. Niño Parish. The topic, he said, would delve on the Year of Faith. Incidentally, Once Upon a Saint, aired over Studio 23 every Sunday morning, is a segment of Family Rosary Crusade program of the late Fr. Patrick Peyton, which is a long running program on national television network. The Lenten recollection is but an integral part of the whole observance of the Holy Week. A more significant part is the Paschal Triduum on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Black Saturday, which is more solemn where the faithful are prompted towards deeper examination of conscience. Here is where the Last Supper, on Maundy Thursday, is remembered followed by Christ’s passion and cruci-

frANZ RAYMOND P. ASPA Elections are at our midst. The Filipino people will get to witness once again the buffoonery and `cheap’ antics of politicians who, with their seemingly declining sense of polish, seem to just dance and sing their way to position. And surprisingly, we (yes we!) have allowed them to validate their tomfoolery. One cannot help but be caught between frustration and hilarity at the sight of a group of political aspirants lined up at a stage trying to dance, most of the time out of sync with the music and without rhythm, and sing out of tune. The greater fools however are the audience who, probably forgetting why their `entertainers’ are there in the first place, seem to enjoy the horseplay, even gracious to lend the number an uproar of applause. Much like our entertainment celebrities whose fate

in the entertainment industry depends not so much on their talents as their strikingly good looks, our politicians of today and their chances of landing the seat they covet depends a great deal on how successful they have made fools out of their unsuspecting preys. “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.” No one, perhaps, could know for certain who started the idea of using the flairs of a clown in getting the sympathy and vote of the electorate and when it actually began. That fact may as well have been forgotten in the deep recesses of memory. But when that ingenious scheme was first injected in the whole system of electoral campaign and when the people took the bait, shame could be attributed to the genius bastards who knew it was timely. It would have been just a case of the people

fixion on Good Friday and the eve of Easter (the Easter Vigil) on Black Saturday. On Easter Sunday - the day celebrating the resurrection of the crucified Christ, the faithful will be renewing their Baptismal vow during the Holy Mass. Many rites or rituals happen in the Roman Catholic Church during the Paschal Triduum. The ordained priests lie prostrate before the altar on Good Friday during the Veneration of the Holy Cross after the Siete Palabras to give reverence or “venerate the wooden cross where our Lord died for our salvation,” according to Fr. Alvero. He added, “The cross became the sign of our Salvation and Victory over sin.” The Catholic faithful are given the same opportunity to venerate and kiss the wooden cross on same day. In the Catholic News Agency website, it is written, “Adoration or veneration of an image or representation of Christ’s cross does not mean that we actually adore the material image, of course, but rather what it represents.

not knowing what hit them. But when they, having been burned the first time, took the bait once more (even repeatedly for countless of times) by electing (and reelecting) into office those with the makings of a comic rather than of a true blue civil servant, blame should be, at that instance, put on them. As though their own public display of jesting is not enough, these aspirants would amplify their folly by hiring, at a very ridiculous price, the ones supposed to be doing the job they are mimicking. The latter, blinded definitely of the promise of a lavish pay, does the former’s bidding, notwithstanding the stain splatted on their supposed `work of art’ which oftentimes, if not always, is used as the very instrument of their frivolity. How else can a political candidate get the attention of his shallow (pardon me for the word) audience than making a popular actor, actress or artist sing his or her currently popular song with words written differently to suit his `slogan’ of candidacy? A classic case of `scratching each others back’, the

It is summertime and children are home. We must teach them to observe cleanliness and sanitation of the surroundings to make the city presentable to guests and also in preparation for the rainy season where flooding due to clogged drainages are imminent. They must appreciate the value of cleanliness and guarding the environment by not throwing plastics anywhere as they clogged up waterways. At a young age, a child must be able to actualize the awareness of the environment and its correct management especially that people’s negligence risk people’s lives and properties. Calling all Taclobanon’s to come out and be part of the Clean-up drive. You can synchronize your Barangay’s clean-up with everyone. May we call on the organizations, civic groups, employees, private groups and families to be one with us during these Saturdays starting March 23 to May 4. If all Taclobanons, young and old alike will have it in their hearts to support the government’s efforts in making a clean and green Tacloban, we do not have to fear of the ill effects of nature’s wrath especially during rainy days.

from their classes. The UP system has this foolhardy “leave of absence” policy that makes students who are unable to enroll in a particular semester to file so he can be re-admitted in the subsequent semester. The administration must look into such policy as students are made to pay a filing fee. It could be another ploy to bleed poor students. Just as Pope Francis has said in his Homily, “. . . the vocation of being

protectors; protecting people, showing loving concern for each and every person, especially children, the elderly, those in need, those who are often the last we think about, must be cultivated.” These professed leaders have the greatest responsibility in protecting the lives of those whom they purport to lead. Once they fail in this, they have nothing more to hold on in their posts. They have to abdicate it or turn it over to others who can and who will.

March 23, 2013 – Saturday of the 5th Week of Lent Ez 37:21-28; Jer 31; Jn 11:45-56

SESSION OF THE SANHEDRIN Many of the Jews who had come to Mary and seen what (Jesus) had done began to believe in him. But some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done. So the chief priests and the Pharisees convened the Sanhedrin and said, “What are we going to do? This man is performing many signs. If we leave him alone, all will believe in him, and the Romans will come and take away both our land and our nation.” But one of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them,, “You know nothing, nor do you consider that it is better for you that one man should die instead of the people, so that the whole nation may not perish.” He did not say this on his own. But since he was high priest for that year, he prophesied that Jesus was going to die for the nation, and not only for the nation, but also to gather into one the dispersed children of God. So from that day on they planned to kill him. So Jesus no longer walked about in public among the Jews, but he left for the region near the desert, to a town called Ephraim, and there he remained with his disciples. Now the Passover of the Jews was near, and many went up from the country to Jerusalem before Passover to purify themselves. They looked for Jesus and said to one another as they were in the temple area, “What do you think? That he will not come the feast?”

SELF-LOVE The Sanhedrin members were worried about their town, nation and even about the limited freedom they had as a colony of Rome. They worried about the external signs of success like the temples and buildings that made them great and famous. They worried about the growing popularity of Christ and the rapidly decreasing popular interest in them. Our ego is one of our problems also. Sometimes it leads us to make unwarranted statements about our own greatness, our cleverness, our impressive achievements. Sometimes these statements are not merely exaggerated facts but may even be pure fiction. Who is really the greatest? In spite of our delusions of grandeur, can we say, “I am a sinful man, O Lord.” (The Daily Gospel Now by Robert E. Sullivan, O.M.I. Published by Paulines.

Because the Cross is inseparable from His sacrifice, in reverencing His Cross we, in effect, adore Christ. Thus we affirm: ‘We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless Thee because by Thy Holy Cross Thou has Redeemed the World.’” The last three days of the Holy Week (the Paschal Triduum), to some Religion instructors and faith advocates, brings into perfection God’s promise of salvation. The fulfillment is the resurrection of Christ because without His rising from death, God’s promise of salvation would be put to naught. Rev. Fr.

and the Message of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, the archbishop of Palo enjoins all the faithful to continue to grow in holiness and sanctity by accepting the love of God in our lives. Because when we experience such love of God it will bring us to love Him by our faith in His Son Jesus Christ, who suffered and died on the cross for all of us that we may be saved and be brought to eternal life through His Resurrection. And for this faith in His Son to be made real and true we have to manifest it through our acts of charity to all people, especially for the poor. May this Season of Lent, especially the Holy Week bring us more graces we need, especially the grace and the wisdom to choose our right leaders for our society come May election.”

Ragub said the directive to lift the CDO is predicated on the payment of the penalty imposed against the NHA contractor for commencing preliminary construction activities without the approved ECC. “Hence, even granting that said penalty is settled, it is incumbent upon the CENRO to ensure that this required ECC for the project be obtained first before lifting the CDO,” Ragub said. He added even before the decision of DENR was promulgated, it has been ascertained that the ECC for the NHA housing project has already been approved and pending release by the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB).

two are nevertheless themselves fools. Gone indeed are the days, now only a pleasant reminiscent of the distant past, when aspirants for political seats used the power of public debate and argumentation to convince the people that they are worthy of their vote. In its stead is placed the current hilarity of the times when, by the doings of these new breed of politicians, campaigning has become more of a show of talents (or non-talents) rather than a contention between erudite factions. It is appalling as it is amusing. But considering the present calibre of public servants our country is producing, manifesting within the very four walls of both houses of Congress, no one should be laughing. More jesters than lawmakers, these so-called `delegates of the people’ teem the fundamental structure of Philippine politics with nothing better to do than deliver ghost speeches.

Bagacay, Calbayog City, Samar. Ms. Aimee Catalan and Mr. Jose Gerwin Babon, program hosts, thanked our engineers for their presence in the show as they have many issues to ask from them. Among the issues discussed were: 1) the sources of fund of the district; 2) the

strict implementation of the Road Right of Way; 3) the maintenance activities undertaken by the district; 4) the Bids and Awards Committee of the district; and 5) Project Billboards. The discussion on the topics were so extensive to really inform the public

of the activities done by the district in pursuit of the department’s goal. Engr. A. Ignacio took the privilege to appeal from the general public not to construct any illegal structures along the National Highway for these obstruct the smooth flow of traffic.

Likewise, Engr.

“Green warriors” to be recognized by PBMLP TACLOBAN CITY – Ten members of the provincial board across the country who passed legislative measures about environment are to receive an award from the Provincial Board Members League of the Philippines (PBMLP) during their next national convention conduct. Leyte Board Member Carlo Loreto, national PBLMP president, in an interview said that the award to be given to provincial board members who are advocates on environment protection would be named as “Ten Most Outstanding Board Members in Environment Protection.” Loreto explained that the award to be given during their PBMLP convention next year was launched during the 23rd PBMLP held at the Heritage Hotel in Manila last March 15-17, 2013. Senator Loren Legarda, one of the speakers of the said gathering, proposed the search for the giving of recognition to board members who are supportive in environmental protection, Loreto said. Legarda on her message pushed for more pro-active environmental legislations at the provincial level. The search for the 10 most outstanding board members in environmental protection would be based in regional, island and national level respectively, Loreto said. “(Sen.) Legarda said that aside from the recognition, honorees of the search will receive cash incentives and project funding from her office through her priority development assistance fund (PDAF),” the PBMLP president added. Moreover, Loreto said that his office would be coordinating with Sen. Legarda’s office in formulating the mechanics and standards of the search in the next few months. “We hope this initiative to be institutionalized at the national league

BM LORETO for the promotion and recognition of quality legislations in the provinces across the country,” Loreto said. (REY GERILLA GRADO)
