37 farmers in So. Leyte attend training on bamboo production and vermicomposting Trainings on bamboo production are the most in-demand among clients of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources in Region 8, and most recently, 37 farmers from 15 people’s organizations in Southern Leyte were trained on bamboo production and vermicomposting on October 9-10, 2013 in Sitio Canlugoc, Barangay Lunas, Maasin City. Dr. Eugenia N. Bautista and For. Emma M. Germano, researchers from the Ecosystems Research and Development Service of the DENR Region 8 served as the resource persons for the training which was sponsored by the
Community Based Forest Management-CARP Project. The attendees heard lectures on nursery establishment and management from Dr. Eugenia Bautista, who also lectured on vermicomposting. For. Emma Germano discussed the topic on bamboo plantation establishment, management, protection and harvesting techniques. A demonstration of how to collect planting stock, potting and sowing of the bamboo and how to make the substrate for vermicomposting was conducted, with the participants actively involved in hands-on exercises. After the lectures and demonstration of

the technologies on bamboo production and vermicomposting, the participants were made to prepare an action plan for their respective organizations on the application of the technologies in their areas of operation. A highlight of the training was the brief appearance of a staff from the office of Congressman Damian Mercado who spoke to the farmers during the training. Mr. Jason Calva, who represented Cong. Mercado at the training, expressed

The two bridges were the Consuegra Bridge in Leyte, Leyte and the Liloan Bridge in Liloan, Southern Leyte, Carlobos said. “But the damages to these bridges were just minor,” he said in a phone interview adding that they would immediately conduct repair works to these bridges. According to him, the two bridges were seen to have “abnormal gap or expansion joints,” attributed
the sentiments of the congressman who was reportedly happy that the training was being conducted. Mr. Calva encouraged the POs to submit project proposals especially on livelihood to the office of the congressman so that he could help his constituents. The training participants came from the municipalities of Kahupian, Sogod, Libagon, Macrohon, Tomas Oppus, San Francisco, Silago, St. Bernard, Liloan, and the City of Maasin.
to the tremor that seen much damages in Cebu and Bohol. The Consuegra Bridge has a span of more than 20 meters while the Liloan Bridge has a length of 100 meters located along the Maharlika Highways. The region’s main bridge, the 2.2 kilometers San Juanico Bridge, which connects Leyte and Samar, did not suffer any damage due to the quake, Carlobos said. During the August 31, 2012 earthquake in the region, the San Juanico Bridge
suffered minor damage reason why it is undergoing some retrofitting. This particular tremor has a magnitude of 7.6. “So far, we have not received any report on damages to any of our structures, particularly on roads and bridges,” Carlobos said. Still, he said, they would conduct their inspections starting next week to all roads and bridges in the region. Carlobos added that they would particularly inspect old bridges in the region like the Bernard Reed Bridge I in Palo town, Leyte. “We have several old
bridges in the region. That is why, we will zero in our inspections to these old bridges. But I guess none of these bridges suffered any damage due to the earthquake as we have not received any report to this effect,” the DPWH official said. Tonette Lim, DPWH8 information officer, said that the people of the region should be thankful that despite the relatively strong tremor, Eastern Visayas was spared from any significant damages. “We should all be thankful that no damages were reported in the region but our structural engineers will still conduct their inspection not only due to their mandates to ensure that these are still safe,” Lim, in a separate phone interview, said.

Tom Rodriguez visits ADFC, to the delight of his many fans TACLOBAN CITYPopular television and movie actor Tom Rodriguez caused girls, guys and gays to shriek as he visited one of the private colleges here in the city yesterday. And what endeared him more to his shrieking fans was when he talked in Waray during a brief media interview with him during his short visit to the Asian Development Foundation College (ADFC). The 26-year Rodriguez, considered one of the handsomest actors today, was born in Olongapo City but her mother is from Pinabacdao, Samar and lived for years in Catbalogan City. The actor was invited to grace the 29th founding anniversary of the ADFC. The school’s students and staff had a grand time posing for pictures with the widely popular actor who was all smile all through out. He said that he was happy to visit Tacloban, though it was only brief. “And I hope I can also visit Catbalogan,” Rodriguez said in the dialect.

The show was so popular that a bill pending in Congress has been named after it. The bill, authored by Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman, if approved, penalizes same-sex adultery. Asked what lessons the show had imparted among its followers, Rodriguez said its more on acceptance of one’s sexuality. “And to the parents, they should also accept the sexuality of their children. It’s given by God, so it’s better to accept them,” he said. (JOEY A. GABIETA)

City council’s opposition to have the numbers by December 2013 CP-SS_Oct 18-21 2013 LeyteSamarDaily18'5x15.indd 1
TACLOBAN CITY- In terms of political affiliation there would be a big change in the Sanguniang Panglungsod of Tacloban come December 2013. Thus said Atty. Jerry S. Uy, the number one councilor of Tacloban, for it will become 6-5 in favor of the opposition councilors. According to Uy, this after the postponement of Sanguniang Kabataan elections until next year with a no holdover capacity for the sitting SK presidents as ex-officio member of the Sangunian. The sitting SK president would only have until end of November to serve, in the case of Tacloban the Hon. Edmund Edward Chua. The six referred to are the councilors who run and won under the banner of former Congressman Florencio “Bem” Noel. They are Uy, Neil Glova, Evangeline Esperas, Dalisay Erpe, Jose Mario Bagulaya and Raissa Villasin. The five councilors referred to are Cristina Romualdez, Atty. Edwin Y. Chua, Frederick I. Chua, Willie Domingo and ABC president Eden Chua Pineda, who are all administration council-
ors. Atty. Uy said that despite this situation it will not affect the legislation in the Sanguniang Panglungsod for they do not vote according to party lines. “On issues, we vote individually and based on our particular view,”
he said. “In a way it is an advantage because we work together and can push for a particular issue for the benefit of the people. But it does not mean that we vote in block,” he added. When asked as to whether they will use the

situation for their favor, Uy emphasized that their group do not use force when pushing for issues even if they have the numbers, “we based it by means of reasons, legality and factually, we usually adhere to the people’s desires.” It can be a positive development with the group for we have now the numbers and can be to page 7

Post Earthquake Thoughts
o one knows when it would come. No human intelligence has yet conceptualized any equipment that could foretell its occurrence and the extent of its damage. The only thing that man could probably do is to be prepared of its eventuality and hope that whatever may arise is something that is within acceptance level. There have been factors identiﬁed to cause huge destructions but man has simply ignored them. The 7.2 magnitude Earthquake that occurred in Bohol and affected Cebu and other neighboring areas is food for thought of everyone in this part of the globe. The Philippines is one of the countries that are prone to massive destruction due to the numerous fault lines and its being within the Ring of Fire. Eastern Visayas had its share of terror and panic when a magnitude 7.6 earthquake hit the area in August 21, 2012. Fortunately, there were no casualties and destruction on properties was nil. The faith of the people was at its peak, divine intervention was the only reason given for
sparing the people from the aftermath of the situation. We could also surmise that Structural Engineers and the DPWH-RO8 in Tacloban and other places in Region 08 are doing their job well. It is daunting that most of the structures that crumbled down during the earthquake were places of worship, century-old churches that are part of the lives and cultural heritage of the Filipino people. Sometimes, happenings like these are reminders of our own fallibility and limitations; of our own susceptibility to materialism. Sometimes it is difﬁcult to accept especially when the things that are taken from us have become part of our daily lives. Stories had it that some of the religious artifacts in Bohol have become underwater tourist attractions and people get to see them for certain fees. Sensibilities have been hurt since certain sectors make money out of such ventures. When disasters come their way, it is only then that people remember. It is high time we learn moral lessons from such happenings.
Why should the PDAF, DAP or whatever they call it be scrapped? Why, indeed? The funds in question are taxpayers’ money intended for development programs. These are for infrastructures that are badly needed by the people such as schools, roads, bridges, hospitals, parks, public edifices and others. The funds are for social services especially for the poor. For many years, huge amounts of money did not go to benefit the intended beneficiaries and the country; they went only to some thick-faced individuals who did not hesitate to live and enrich
themselves from the hard-earned money of others. The money under the Priority Development Assistance Fund or the Disbursement Acceleration Program are not personally owned by any senator or congressman, yet, people who become beneficiaries of the as-
sistance feel indebted to them. This is the biggest irony considering that such funds are tagged with the congressman or senator’s name as if they personally own the funds. There are some sectors who feel that the PDAF or DAP must not be scrapped, rather the people involved in the scam must be the
ones punished. That contention is wrong. The PDAF and DAP have become vehicles of corruption. The real culprits involved in its misuse are some of the very people whose names have been tagged along with it. Using the funds to make them popular for the next elections is the biggest error of it all. The Napoleses are just fixers who got involved accidentally; if it was not Janet Lim Napoles, it could have been somebody else. JLN was apprehended due to her greed. to page 5

These days, Leyte province remembers when Gen. Douglas MacArthur returned to this province to fulfill a promise that which is now a by-word, “I shall return.” 69 years back, on October20, this commander of the US Army Forces in the Far East waded ashore at the Red Beach along with his men, to emasculate the strength of the Japanese Imperial Army which then was backed by the Axis Forces. It was not himself, of course, who first paddled and paced through the beachfront of Leyte Island. His subordinates did but were largely subdued by enemy snipers, according to historical accounts. Leyte Gulf Landings was just one of the campaigns across the archipelago in the battle to thwart the Japanese forces from advancing its interest in the Far East. History recounts that the Japanese government desired to invade the Philippines as part of their plan for a “Greater East Asia War.” Such conquest aimed to impede the use of the Philippines as an advance base of operations by American forces, to acquire staging areas and supply bases to enhance operations against the Netherlands East Indies, and to secure the lines of communication between occupied areas in the south and the Japanese Home Islands, according to sources. At the end of the war days, the USAFFE, aided by the Allied Forces, won over the Japanese army. This feat made MacArthur
a hero. However, such victory could not have been achieved without the gallantry of the Filipino guerillas and those now known as war veterans. The WWII veterans, slowly getting exhausted in vigor and number, are the main protagonists as far as Philippine Liberation in the 1940s is concerned. They fought with rustic armaments, raw implements and old-fashioned tactics that could have made victory a rare possibility. But by God’s grace, inspired by spirits both divine and secular and guided both by “unseen hands” and by high sense of patriotism, our dear Filipino warriors, largely guerillas, won the battle. Their valiance is extremely admirable, a phrase which in fact is an understatement. This is precisely a reason that they should be shown due hospitality and dealing more than that afforded to the dignitaries and other guests in all commemorative activities. It is but fitting that the national gov-
from page 4
If she was not that extremely greedy and showy with her wealth, she would still be enjoying the devil’s alliance now. But what happened to her was meant to be and it was for good. Soon there will be many more who will surface; all it takes are courageous people who will come forward to tell the truth; people who offer their serene lives for the common good. Word is going around that there are JLNs in the Judiciary and the Executive branches, not just the Legislative; but whether
these have truth or not, all it takes is one honest and courageously person to stand up and become witness. The only way to prevent the perpetration of scams using the PDAF or DAP is to make both upper and lower Congress do their own mandate – make laws just as the executive will have to focus on its own. It can download development funds right to where they are needed – to the local government units and the agencies who do direct public service and let the COA do its work.
If we were in it ernment offer them the highest esteem primarily because had it not been for their dexterity, courage and determination, there would be no democratic Philippine being talked about these era of information technology. Had we been with them in those years when the chivalrous veterans were fighting with daggers against pistols of the enemies, with axe against bayonet and will to regain the country for the future generation from the hands of atrocious subjugators, would we be like them? See how the Philippines is being aggrieved through these years by internal and external forces. Internal that is the stashing of taxpayers’ hard-earned money for the thieves’ personal gain. External that is China’s slowly setting ground in West Philippine Sea (erstwhile South China Sea). Bravo to those who animate their verbose fight against corruption and against the invasion of China in Philippine territories in West Philippine Sea. They maybe disparaged now, but sooner they will be the country’s heroes for fighting for the country’s continued good and that of her people.

“The inn that shelters for the night is not the journey’s end. The law, like the traveller, must be ready for the morrow.” This quote from Justice Cardozo is what I’m always reminded of every time talks about charter change spring up. It speaks of change as inevitable, being the only constant thing in this plain, and that any law, not least the most fundamental, is at some point destined for it. Holistically however, it talks not just of any kind of change but of change for the good, if not for the better. It talks of change for improvement, not for decline. It drives home a change to cure, not to exacerbate. Which is why those who advocate changing our present Constitution should think twice in taking refuge under the mantle of this erudite passage if to justify that a change is called for. By all means use it if changing this country’s charter means filling the gaping holes left out by its framers. By all means abuse it if changing the constitution means making it more palatable and more sensible. Otherwise, hands off and back off. In contrast to the sour stance of President Aquino on the issue of charter change, in fact thumbing down with a resounding “no” all attempts to revive it, his predecessor’s position was quite the far opposite. It was on the contrary the very backbone of her administration, seeing that a change of its provisions was the only way to make her stay in power. Unfortunately for her, and fortunately for us, she had to almost die trying. In fairness to those who advocate for it, both as to those whose intentions are as straight as P-Noy’s daang matuwid or as crooked as Rodrigo Duterte’s idea of criminal justice, reasons may have piled up in the almost three decades that our constitution has been in existence enough for us to say that a change, if not a total revamp, has become an itching necessity or if not, as an excuse for it. I, for one, am not a big fan of its provision on the party-list system as it has been used by scrupulous politicians as an easy ticket to Congress or otherwise as an alternative route on seeing that a chance of
winning a district representative seat is too remote a chance. I still shudder at the thought that Mikey Arroyo got and is getting away with representing a party of tricycle drivers and security guards. I also see our present Constitution as overkill, being too lengthy for a fundamental law. Maybe because it is an overreaction to the despotic regime which preceded and which was the precise reason for it. Its framers may have been too cautious to ensure that the terrors of the previous martial law will not rear its ugly head again, that any attempt of one with the despotic propensities of Marcos will
be easily thwarted by the safeguards they have installed. It may have been a notch too cautious though they used a jackhammer to drive in an ordinary nail. There is also that constant issue that regularly props up and does not fail to become a point of debate every three years. Our present constitution’s provision on political dynasty, we know, is an inutile provision. It exists but of nil use. It prohibits but does not punish. It is as limp as a rickety phallus which requires an enabling law as its blue pill to make it useful. And because such a possibility is

SAYING ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT [Jesus said to his disciples,] “I tell you, everyone who acknowledges me before others the Son of Man will acknowledge before the angels of God. But whoever denies me before others will be denied before the angels of God. Everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but the one who blasphemes against the holy Spirit will not be forgiven. When they take you before synagogues and before rulers and authorities, do not worry about how or what your defense will be or about what you are to say. For the holy Spirit will teach you at that moment what you should say.”
GOD LOVES ME IN CHRIST God has known me from eternity. He created me because he loves me. He calls me to eternal happiness with him. In order that I may more surely enjoy this happiness, he sent me his Son, Jesus Christ. He lets me share in the Resurrection of Christ when I am an active member of the Mystical Body of Christ. God is eternally pleased with the infinite and eternal sacrifice of this Son, Jesus Christ. He sees me, and is pleased with me because he sees me as a member of Christ, by my baptism. I have identify with Christ before God, my Father. God loves me because I am a member of Christ who is lovable. If I abandon my baptism and abandon Christ, I might still have a chance to gain heaven but how could I achieve this just by my own efforts? Can I honestly abandon Christ after his suffering and death for me? What assurance have I to save my soul without Christ? (The Daily Gospel Now by Robert E. Sullivan, O.M.I. published by Paulines.

which was the very reason for its creation. Too bad its name is not as awesome as its essence, being referred to sometimes as a toothless tiger having been given by the constitution merely the pathetic power to investigate but not the further power to prosecute and the ultimate power to punish.

That it is not wanting to effect change so much as the reasons for wanting it.
