Over 900 cops deployed across Eastern Visayas Leyte school receives computer set from the Rotary

Students and teachers of the Binibihan Elementary School in Carigara, Leyte, lead by its principal Jovena Tadefa express their gratitude for the oneset computer donated by the Rotary Club of Leyte Gulf and Rotary Club of Cebu Fort San Pedro.

CARIGARA, LeyteAn old school in this town now joined in the world of internet connection. This after the Rotary Club of Leyte Gulf and the Rotary Club of Cebu Fort San Pedro donated a one-set of computer equipment to the Binibihan Elementary School, this town, yesterday. And its school principal, Jovena Tadefa, could only express her delight for the “wonderful gift.” “Their donation is, no doubt, will be a big help not only to us teachers but as well as to our pupils here,” Tadefa, who is just on her second year as principal of the 60-year

old elementary school. For Grade VI pupil, Jessel Indita, she is “overwhelmed” that finally she could now use a computer where she could work on her assignments and school projects. “This is the first time that our school will have its own computer set and we are happy that our visitors donated this to our school,” the pupil said. Mergel Betapang, a Grade I pupil, shyly admitted that it was the first time that she saw a computer. “So that is a computer? Can I do my homework on it?” she asked. to page 2

TAC L O BA N CITY- To ensure a peaceful and orderly conduct of barangay elections in Eastern Visayas, more than 900 policemen were deployed in the different provinces and cities across the region. The 981 policemen, who are to perform their elections duties relative to next Monday’s barangay elections, were deployed yesterday to their respective assignments. Of this number, 287 were deployed in Northern Samar where police authorities tagged the biggest number of barangays where possible election-related violence may occur. Inspector Romuel Nacar, information officer of the Philippine National Police, said that out of Northern Samar’s 569 barangays, 147 were considered as under its watch-list areas relative to the barangay polls. “This is the reason why out of the 981 policemen called for election duties, majority were assigned to page 7

PH,NZ enjoys good relationship, ambassador says TACLOBAN CITY The relationship between the Philippines and New Zealand is getting better considering that more Filipinos are going to their country to live and work. This was the assessment of New Zealand Ambassador Reuben Levermore who was among the dignitaries who joined the recently held 69th Leyte Gulf Landings celebration. New Zealand is the th 13 largest export market of the country, a third of

which is for dairy products. New Zealand, however, exports more products to the Philippines. Over half of the Philippines’ exports to New Zealand are fruit products mostly are bananas. The New Zealand envoy also cited Leyte in particular as one of the partners of their country that can be traced back in the 70’s were both countries has an existing cooperation of geothermal studies. He added that Leyte and New Zealand are

somewhat the same in soil quality which is why there could be a possibility of partnership between the provincial government of Leyte and their government in agricultural program. A m b a s s a d o r Levermore added Leyteños should also look in the possibility of studying in their country. Education is an important aspect in their country according to Levermore especially in their economy and it helps for better linkages of

countries for future trading partnership. Just recently, the New Zealand government has announced a package of new initiatives to encourage further growth in New Zealand’s $2.6 billion international education sector by making it easier for some international students to work during their studies and allow streamlined visa processing in partnership with selected high quality education providers in their country.

Works on drainage, slope protection now underway in the Leyte town TACLOBAN CITY – The more than three kilometers of drainage canal and slope protection project is now underway along

Ormoc. The drainage canal and slope protection project, particularly found in Brgy. Lemon, Capoocan, Leyte cost around P19.7 million. This project was started in August and is expected to be completed by December this year. Last year, the DPWH’s Bureau of Maintenance gave a poor and fair rating for the Palo-CarigaraOrmoc road particularly the mountainous area of Capoocan, Leyte. However, 2nd Leyte Engineering District (LED) engineer Carlos Veloso vowed to rectify defects along this road section in two years. Under the 2014 National Expenditure Program, road sections covered by the 2nd LED will get P95.74 million for rehabilitation, P12 million for road slip,

P1.5 million for bridge repair, P19.71 million for drainage system, P14.24 million for asphalt overlay, and P28 million for paving of shoulders. The bulk of the budget will be poured out within the 20-kilometer critical road section in Capoocan town. The road was damaged by regular passage of heavy vehicles and poor drainage system. The district office also intends to use coconets in identified road sections along the 20-kilometer road stretch in Capoocan to solve the problem of unstable slopes. “We are fast-tracking the completion of the rehabilitation of this particular road as this serves as a major road and affects much our economic activity in the area,” Engr. Veloso said. (AHLETTE C. REYES)

Leyte... from page 1 The equipment was personally turned over to the school by rotarians Joey Clarin, Butch Veloso, Humberto Franco, Dalmacio “Massey” Grafil and Jean Marechaux, director for community of the Rotary Club of Cebu Fort San Pedro. Among the witness of the turnover was barangay councilor Victorino Alalid, who is the president of the General Parents-Teachers Association of the Binibihan Elementary School. The school has 232 pupils with six teachers headed by Tadefa. It was established in 1950, making it one of the oldest schools in Carigara if not in the entire province of Leyte. The school is located 12 kms away

from the town center of Carigara. Tadefa said that since they have no room where they could permanently put the donated computer, it would be installed at her office. (JOEY A. GABIETA)

Eastern Samar provincial board to go paperless, says it’s vice governor TACLOBAN CITYEastern Samar Vice Governor Marcelino Picardal said that they are contemplating of resorting to a paperless system during their sessions. Last October 22, Picardal together with the other members of the Eastern Samar provincial board, visited their counterparts in Leyte to observe how they conduct their session sans the use of papers during their sessions. He revealed that if their plan would push through, they expect to adopt the paperless system by next year. The Eastern Samar vice governor said that with their new system, their Leyte counterparts can pursue “substantial headway and achieve developmental local legislation.” The paperless session

here in Leyte is the pet project of Vice Gov. Carlo Loreto complementing the legislative tracking system which they first used during the term of former vice governor and now board member, Mimiette Bagulaya. The paperless session aims to lessen the use of paper and ensure that members of the provincial board would immediately study the agenda of their session. Aside from observing the dynamics of the regular session, they also wanted to be appraised with the budgetary requirements of the paperless system of the Leyte’s provincial board, Picardal said. The provincial board of Leyte is the first Sangguniang Panlalawigan to use the paperless system during sessions. Leyte Vice Gov. Loreto said that he was glad

eturn if possible must not be the cry of taxpayers whose taxes were stashed by women and men who posed as honorable when in reality, not. The demand must be clear and unconditional, which is to compel the lawmakers who stole people’s money from the public coffers. This country needs one good standard in enforcing its laws, rules and regulations. The advocacy of “matuwid na daan” requires highranking government officials to serve as epitome of walking their talk. Simple accounting and auditing rules must be imposed with ease and without fear or favor. Setting double standards for various classes of individuals is one sure recipe for trouble. People are aware that government is strong and effective in implementing laws against the poor but are too weak and tentative in enforcing laws affecting the

rich and the powerful. It is really appalling to know that lowly government officials who fall into the mess of tinkering into the public funds could easily be charged in court. On the other hand, people who drain the public coffers to keep their pockets and safes ever-flowing, could hardly be charged even for the more glaring felonies. The wealthy and powerful continue with their illegal activities, then through infrastructures with overpricing and now through non-government organizations that has now suffered a serious setback following the exposes on the pork barrel scam. People had suffered much as they were deprived of their basic needs from government purportedly due to lack of funds. Many basic services had been withheld to page 8

3 days left to win or lose, unsightly posters remain Who is responsible to remove the bill or placard? Do we need a law for politicians to pull the posters after election? Five months passed the local election, on coming Monday, October 28, the Barangay election will decide who among the candidates for officials of the community to lead the people. Unlike before the Marcos era, the only official in the Barangay (known then as Barrio) is the Tenyente del Barrio (Barrio Lieutenant) who is appointed by the local chief executive. The Tenyente merely represents the mayor to the community without much power. Today a Punong Barangay is the chief executive, lawmaker as member of the Sanggunian, and judicial officer as member of the Lupon Tagapamayapa. In the present Local

Government Code, a Barangay has to elect their officials for the positions of one (1) Punong Barangay and seven (7) Kagawad (councilor). The candidates are supposed to be nonpartisan. It is presume that nonpartisanship will avoid the heat of politics within relatives and friends. Nevertheless, candidates for

Barangay positions are duplicating the practice of politicians in the national and local level election. There is advantage for setting a team of a Punong Barangay and seven Kagawads, because of expenses shared by them in the course of the campaign. They used one or two vehicle to go around the community shaking hands with the peo-

ple, voter or nonvoter alike. The expense for the sound system shared, likewise snacks for supporters joining them in their house-tohouse campaign sorties. Few minutes ago while encoding this piece, a man was looking for a candidate for Punong Barangay with a list of ten persons whom he said are voters in his Purok, albeit, without telling me the list is for financial needs, I perceived it to be. Even in Barangay election, people who used to received the Devil’s money for them to vote a candidate is practiced. Politicians who won the recent local election are seen distributing P10,000.00

Pride and politics

It is horrendous enough that underneath the rubbles of the October 15 earthquake that rocked the better part of Visayas, a great number of lives were untimely snuffed and for those lucky to have lived another day, found themselves isolated with no place to go and with almost nothing to eat. It is horrendous even more that despite the disaster, there are the sinister ones who find it more as an opportunity rather than a reason to weep and grieve. One would eventually see the underlying overtones behind the snotty attitude of Mayor Leoncio Evasco, local chief executive of Maribojoc, Bohol, when he insisted that his municipality should handle the distribution of relief being offered by the Philippine Red Cross to earthquake survivors and ordered its volunteers to leave when they refused to hand over what they intended to distribute. He of course cloaked his condescension with remarks that he wish only to ad-

here to the centralized distribution system his municipality has adopted for the distribution of relief goods to his unfortunate constituents and even had the brazenness to say that he is not one to use an organization to promote his own political agend That got me to thinking: considering the coming barangay elections, didn’t he just wade in the murky waters of politics when he refused, and arrogantly at that, to let the Philippine Red Cross go on with their distribution on the flimsy reason that it is anathema to his so-called centralized distribution system? Didn’t he, by the said refusal, impliedly lend substance to reports that several local government officials are hoarding relief goods in their offices to the prejudice of those who need them the most? And didn’t he, by the escalating reports that relief goods are being used by candidates to the nearing barangay elections to buy votes, just confirm that? It is, to be sure, an act

of polish to adopt a system of distribution if to make sure that only those genuinely in dire need of food and things to get by their everyday get to be given relief. It is, verily, urbane to adopt a system that would make distribution a seeming walk in the park – fast but efficient. But adopting such a system is one thing; insisting on it when clearly it should be the last thing in everyone’s mind, if not altogether scrapped, is another. The former reeks of sophistication, the latter, just of pride. Sadly, considering the degenerative state of our politics and our politicians, his refusal maybe wasn’t just about pride. Maybe it has deeper roots; maybe it has overtones more perverse. Maybe pride is just a whipping boy that should hide the perversity. Maybe pride is taking all the blame when it shouldn’t But whether the reason for his refusal is this but not that or that but not this, it is the unfortunate victims who get to suffer its brunt of pain and neglect. It is the helpless victims who get to go hungry with one less pack of relief goods given, it is them who get to go desperate and hail anyone they can to ask for food. It is ridiculous that not even disaster could trump pride and politics.

Shame It’s a shame that Pres. Benigno Aquino III has remained hell-bent on keeping his controversial Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP), even making justifications during Wednesday’s annual forum of the Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines (FOCAP) that the stimulus package “heralded our country’s economic boom.” Aquino then turned his attack to the media and to some quarters in the society that DAP was scrutinized to “divert” public’s attention from the other equally controversial pork barrel system. Personally, there is no more point for Aquino defending the issue because the people have already decided, that DAP, like the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF),

Empowerment Fund, Unprogrammed Fund, Malampaya Fund and other questionable government funding mechanisms, must be investigated. The clamor for DAP and PDAF abolition is not only strong in the country but also abroad with our 12 million OFWs, who have been critical of the government owing to the “deteriorating services and protection” they’ve received, this amid the long existence of

the so-called various state fundings. “From the halls of the Congress to the offices in Malacañang, the gross immorality and irregularity of the pork barrel system that gives legislators P25 billion and the President with P1.3 trillion in discretionary funds is rapidly becoming apparent,” reads a statement from the United Filipinos in Hongkong. Just like the OFWs in Hongkong, ordinary Filipi-

Old folks, memory loss and coping It’s a different thing to hear. If you happen to have old folks at home whether in-laws or not, it’s a challenging situation. Not only for the old folks, but also for those who love them. The situation even becomes more difficult when they become vulnerable, forgetfull or how about being afflicted with Alzheimer disease. Mom at 86 has amazing memory. Rusty keys, bottles, maimed figurines, empty, big or small bottles, old magazines and sepia photographs of Bobs and letters are intact and are all part of her treasure trove. Exactly the opposite of Papa Charlie. Yet, all so vivid in her memory when trying to retrieve any one of these stuff. But here is one fact I am seeking enlightenment of. I am afraid that I may have it when my time comes and why not? I am thinking about dementia, or Alzheimer. What if we have one at home? What if it’s you? Experts say that seeking an early diagnosis is important if you are noticing a loved one having problems with memory. Moreover, it was reported that if you feel some decrease in cognitive function is a normal part of aging. However, if the memory impairment is causing problems with daily living, a visit to the doctor is in order. Once diagnosed, both the person with the nos have also felt that they have been betrayed by the government leaders who have sworn to protect and promote their interest due to this large-scale theft of their hard-earned money. “Aquino’s ‘righteous path’ is meaningless in the face of the pork barrel system scandals. His government’s determination to preserve the even bigger presidential pork despite overwhelming call by the people for total abolition of the pork barrel system, does not speak well of the administration’s intent of stamping out corruption at all levels of government. The so-called DAP of the Office of the President is but another form of pork barrel, and thus must also be abolished,” the statement further reads. Just like the group, I joined in demanding from Pres. Aquino to do the following: 1.) Eliminate the

disease and family members is asked: “What comes next?” To get to answers, it’s helpful to understand that everyone’s situation is different. Now in my golden age, with so many treasurestamps , I am frightened I will lose sight of their historical values – just imagine slowly forgetting Ingres, Renoir, Manet, Monet, Magyar posta, the Chateau de Bazoches, Henri Rousseau etc. And of course,

the philatelists all over the globe who added to my little collection from time to time, not to forget the latest, Jean-Philippe Piquard of Sievoz le bas, France. A generous philatelist who parted fifty stamps for me to journey on. Maybe, we simply have to know more about the spirit of caregiving – from bathing, feeding and changing loved ones. And access windows that educates on the disease.

October 25, 2013 – Friday of the 29th Week Rom 7:18-25a; Ps 119; Lk 12:54-59

SIGNS OF THE TIMES Jesus said to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west you say immediately that it is going to rain – and so it does; and when you notice that the wind is blowing from the south you say that it is going to be hot – and so it is. You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and of the sky; why do you not know how to interpret the present time? “Why do you not judge for yourselves what is right? If you are to go with your opponent before the magistrate, make an effort to settle the matter on the way; otherwise your opponent will turn you over to the judge, and the judge hand you over to the constable, and the constable throw you into prison. “I say to you, you will not be released until you have paid the last penny.”

INNER CONFLICT War is an enormous crime. All battles are nothing but murder on a large scale. And yet there is so much of it in the world. In olden times, when there was a war, it was a human to human confrontation. Nowadays, it is much more terrifying, because a man in an office can push a button and kill millions of people and never see the human tragedy he has created. But all want to live in a peaceful world. How is it possible? If we learn “to interpret the present time” (Lk 12:56), as our Lord asks us to, we will realize that the conflict in the world has its origin in the conflict that goes on in every human heart. As St. Paul puts it, “I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate” (Rom 7:15). This internal conflict may take many forms. It can show itself through greed, hatred and thirst for power. Once the individuals are able to resolve this inner conflict and enjoy inner peace, global peace will be the natural result. Who will give you some rest, not peace., if you go to a supermarket asking for peace, people will laugh at you. But there is one who can give us this peace, Jesus Christ.

To be faithful to it requires an ongoing and oft-repeated workout, with a commitment that lasts from dawn to dusk every day.” –Blessed James Alberione, Founder of the Pauline Family

Will the legislators pass a law to curb the bad practice of candidates posting their political propaganda and leaving for nature to clean like typhoon or earthquake? Mine may be a voice in wilderness that could hardly touch the conscience of the politicians, however, as member of the Fourth Estate, I have done my part. (Feedback welcome, g_duna@yahoo. com)

quality standard would help in reducing risk of accidents and safety of buildings during an earthquake, for example. To ensure that the construction materials are of quality standard, buyers and contractors must look for the ICC (imported commodity clearance) marking if they are imported and for Philippine products, they must look for the PS mark. “If there is no marking, that means that the products had entered the country illegally. They should not patronize these items,” said Arce.

However, Arce admitted that there were also fake ICC and PS markings. If buyers have doubt on the standard of the construction materials, Arce advises them to visit the DTI offices and have the construction materials checked. Arce said that their group has been conducting seminars to their members for them to determine whether the materials that they are using are of good quality and passed the required standards.
