Binay hopes no one is spared in probe of pork barrel scam

BY JOEY A. GABIETA

TANAUAN, Leyte - Vice President Jejomar Binay said that he hope the administration will be fair in dealing with the probe of the pork barrel scam and punish those who were indeed liable.

By sparing no one will be the only way to disprove perception that the investigation and eventually those who would be charged are coming from the opposition camp only,

Binay said. But the Vice President could not help but expressed his surprise that those charged due to the pork barrel scam all came from the opposition.

“Basta kataka-taka lang, although first batch pa lang daw, panay di mga kaibigan ng administrasyon ang nakasuhan. Ito’y nakalulungkot,” Binay said. “Sana di lang lahat galing sa oposisyon para di manatili ang bintang or speculation na di target ang opposition,” the Vice President added. The Department of Justice through the National Bureau of Investigation filed plunder charges against former Senate president Juan Ponce Enrile, Senate pro

tempore Jinggoy Estrada and Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla together with the brains of the P10 billion pork barrel scam, Janet Lim-Napoles. Asked if he personally believes that the three opposition leaders were indeed involved in the pork barrel scam, Binay said otherwise. “There is always the presumption of innocence unless you are convicted,” he said. He, however, admitted that he had talked to page 3

TACLOBAN CITY – The National Nutrition Council (NNC) asked key health officials in local government units to strengthen their resolve to promote the proper infant and young child feeding (IYCF) practices, noting that past trainings have not been applied.

Murder suspect, gun-carrying bizman nabbed by RSOG in Samar CAMP KANGLEON, Palo, Leyte – A farmer wanted for allegedly killing his neighbor two years ago and a guncarrying man engaged in buy-and-sell business were nabbed by the Regional Special Operations Group (RSOG) of the Police Regional Office 8 (PRO8) in separate focused-police operations conducted on Monday morning and Sunday evening in Samar province. PRO8 director PCSupt. Elmer R. Soria identified the murder suspect as Oscar Gabison, 38, while Virgelio Beriño, 29, was nabbed for carrying a firearm without appropriate permit-to-carry issued by authorities. Soria informed that the RSOG, led by PInsp.

Constantino Jabonete, Jr., arrested Gabison at 12:00 noon Monday at the vicinity of Brgy. 7 in Catbalogan City. Gabison is the primary suspect in the brutal killing of his neighbor, Delia Caniedo, and the serious wounding of one Myrna Tan in Brgy. Guindapunan, Daram town in the afternoon of October 17, 2011. The incident stemmed from a case for qualified theft filed by the victims against the suspect before the Regional Trial Court Branch 28 in Catbalogan City. Judge Manuel Torrevillas, Jr. of RTC Branch 27 in Catbalogan City, issued arrest warrants for murder and frustrated murder against the suspect on September 3, 2012.

No bail was recommended for murder case number 8297 while P120,000 was the fixed bail for the frustrated murder charges under criminal case number 8296. Gabison was brought to the court of origin and was later remanded to the Samar Provincial Jail, also in Catbalogan. The night before, the same police team nabbed Beriño at the village wharf in Brgy. Dumaluong, Gandara town some 40 kilometers north from Catbalogan, Samar’s capital. The suspect, who is engaged in buying and selling piglets, was arrested for carrying an unlicensed .45 caliber Colt MK IV series 80 pistol loaded with a magazine with four am-

munitions at 10:00 p.m. Sunday. The native of Brgy. Jacopon, Daram, failed to present any document proving his authority to possess the confiscated firearm. A case for violation of Republic Act 8294 or the Illegal Possession of Firearms and Ammunition law was already filed in court against the suspect, Soria informed. Soria further disclosed that as the barangay elections draws nearer, the police will intensify the conduct of manhunt operations against wanted criminals and the campaign against loose firearms as part of the effort to pre-empt any electionrelated violent incidents in the region.

Police nab Ormoc City’s number 5 most wanted ORMOC CITY Shortly after the police in station 3 received a text message from an informant, the city’s number 5 most wanted fell into the hands of police authorities while the suspect was visiting a cousin in Camella Homes, Tambulilid village, this city, Monday morning. Arrested was Galicano Siciban, 62, a resident of Nueva Sociedad village, this city, a former barangay councilor and currently a taxi driver in Cebu City. The arrest was

based on an alias warrant issued by then presiding judge Apolinario Buaya of RTC Branch 35. Insp. Harris Rebato, PS3 deputy station chief, said Siciban, the station’s top wanted, did not resist when apprehended. The suspect faces murder charges. The crime was committed in October 29, 2006 only as a self- defense while he was performing duty as barangay official, according to Siciban. He recalled that four men, known as cousins from a nearby village, ap-

peared and demonstrated impoliteness in his organized barangay benefit dance. As chairman of the Lupong Tagapamayapa, he tried to stop them but one of them hacked him. In defense, he retaliated and killed one of them. He sustained hack wounds and was hospitalized for five days. Siciban knew there was a case filed against him but he decided not to file a counter-affidavit for fear of life. Asked if he stays in Cebu City to avoid the ar-

rest, Siciban replied he had been earning a living as taxi driver there prior to the incident and he had been prepared to face the charges, anyway. For now, the barangay officials in Nueva Sociedad are compiling the pevious blotters against the group that Siciban as lupon chairman had encountered. No bail was recommended for his temporary freedom. He is now detained at PS3 lock up while waiting for the commitment order to BJMP. (ELVIE ROMAN ROA)

Brgy. Robas residents support presence of military JARO, Leyte -- Residents of Brgy Robas, this town,have asked the military not to pull out their forces despite the ambuscade incident last Saturday afternoon, Sept. 14, 2013. In an interview of Leyte Samar Daily Express with Reynaldo Batis, president of Barangay Peace and Development Organization of Brgy Robas, said they support the presence of the military in their barangay. They do believe that their presence in the area is a necessity in order to maintain the peace and also serve to monitor and immediately respond to security, disaster and development concerns. According to Ba-

This age group has been tagged as very vulnerable to irreversible consequences of malnutrition. Malnutrition has been responsible, directly or indirectly, for 60% of the 10.9 million deaths worldwide annually among children 0 to 5 years old. Over twothirds of these deaths occur in the first year of life. The IYCF focuses on two topics – exclusive breastfeeding and proper complementary feeding. Exclusive breastfeeding means giving a baby only breast milk, and no other liquids or solids, not even water. Drops or syrups consisting of vitamins, mineral supplements or medicines are permitted After six months all babies require complementary foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond.

Orchestrated clean-up to be held in all adopted water bodies in EV

TACLOBAN CITY An orchestrated clean-up of all adopted water bodies in the region will be observed on September 21. It will be a simultaneous clean-up nationwide, according to Maribel Munsayac, chief Environmental, Education and Information Section of Environment and Management Bureau (EMB) in a press conference. The event is in observance of the annual International Cleanup (ICC) Day pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 470, Series of 2003. In Tacloban, it will be in Mangon-Bangon River, Burayan River and Mahayahay Creek. These water bodies have been adopted by partners and cared for by the host communities.

The cleanup will start at 7 A.M. and at 9 A.M., a short program follows with a commitment signing for the sponsors and stakeholders at Barangay 44 in San Jose. The community will be mobilized during the event. The Rotary Club of Kandaya headed by its president Caroline Lee Andrade is one of the adopters of the Mangon-Bangon River. The others are Mercy Hospital, Divine Word Hospital, McCarol Ventures, Petron, Shell Corportion, Leyte Normal University, Volunteer for the Visayas, Couples for Christ-Handmaids of the Lord and Geodetic Engineers Association of the Philippines. Munsayac said their agency is willing to accept more adopters of this

program. This year’s ICC theme is “Bayanihan para sa Malinis na Karagatan.” “It will be a surface clean-up and if there are interventions like dredging, it will be acted by the adopters,” Munsayac said. Region-wide there are twenty-one water bodies already adopted by thirtyfour adopters from various organizations including local government units, academe, private industries and other organizations. Recently there have been significant improvements in the quality of adopted water bodies as a result of cleanup activities with the host communities and massive information and education campaigns conducted by the agency.

TACLOBAN CITY -- For this month, the Tacloban City Police Office (TCPO) is preparing to implement a new livelihood program dubbed as Barbero Livelihood Project. This program is intended for out-of-school youth (OSY) residing in the city According to Police Senior Inspector Ma. Bella Rentuaya, chief of the Public Community Relation Officer, the program is part of the TCPO’s peace- keeping efforts. With this, TCPO aims to extend assistance to youth and members of youth organizations like Youth for Human and Ecological Security (YHES) who were not

able to attend school. There is no particular number of recipients yet, but TCPO is eyeing at least 50 youth from Barangay 52 and its neighbouring barangays. TCPO receives support from the City Aternative Learning System, City DepEd, YHES and the recipient barangays with the Rotary Club of Candaya the sponsoring said livelihood program. Rentuaya shared that the City ALS will be providing the technical know-how to the recipients regarding haircutting. As of now, TCPO will start with haircutting sessions first. “We’ll

have haircutting sessions first because haircutting is the easiest way to generate income. Also, the equipments for this job are not that expensive.” She also mentioned that they will include manicure and pedicure lessons for girls next time. Aside for the tutorial, TCPO will also be distributing haircutting tools to the recipients. “We are hopeful that we could start with this next week. But definitely we will carry out this program this month,” Rentuaya said.(MARY SHARMAINE I. GABORNES, LNU Intern)

Tragedies

I

t has often been referred to as a scam, a scheme, a con, a trick but many seems to be missing the point that, more than the words by which it has been described in the past few days, it is more importantly a tragedy. That it is a scam, a scheme, a con, a trick goes without saying. How else could one better describe than a scam, a scheme, a con and a trick the “misadventures” of Janet Lim- Napoles and her unseemly cohorts? It took a better part of a decade, P10 billion and the detention of Benhur Luy before the said scam could be let out in the damning light of the open. It remained under wraps for more or less 10 years, which makes it not only a scam, a scheme, a con and a trick. It is ingenious; cunning and twisted but ingenious. But more than what it has been described and named, it is more frustratingly a tragedy. It may not have carried the repercussions of death, hostage and displacement

that were descriptive of the current misfortune that befell the City of Zamboanga but the new scam on the pork barrel fund is just the same a tragedy. That it does not carry the aftermaths brought by the Zamboanga City siege does not make the pork barrel scam less a tragedy. It is, on the other hand, a tragedy in all indications. It is a tragedy because while it may not have literally taken lives, it metaphorically snuffed our lives as well-meaning Filipinos when the people to whom we reposed our authority abused that authority and became rich in the process. It is a tragedy secondly because while it may not have literally taken people as hostage, it rendered us hostage by the corruption of which it reeks. And it is a tragedy lastly because while it may not have caused our physical displacement, it nonetheless displaced our trust in the government which should supposedly protect us instead of rob us.

Tricky thievery? Some users of the extensively advertised as energy savers compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs have started grumbling about spending more than what they spent for the old type of fluorescent bulbs. They have observed, so did this columnist, that CFL bulbs easily expire or lose usage potential which thus force them to frequently replace them with new ones. They buy new CFL bulbs very frequently. They have noticed too that sometimes, the bulbs start dimming after one month, and that the lower the wattage the dimmer a bulb becomes. It is of common knowledge that for years now, since their entry into commerce, CFL bulbs are very expensive. Some years back, homes were brightened up for long, long months by fluorescent bulbs

which were then much less costly than their CFL counterparts. Fluorescent lamps very rarely got busted or lose fluorescence capability in a year’s time. Contrary to the energy-saving claim, CFL bulbs make you spend more. The government, thru the Department of Energy, had vigorously campaigned for a swift shit to CFC lighting, as part of its contribution to the worldwide cam-

paign for shielding planet Earth against overheating which was found out to be enhancing global warming. It also told the whole Filipino nation that fluorescent bulbs or lamps would then be phased out to eventually allow for exclusive use of CFL lamps. As a welcome result beneficial to the business sector and CFL bulbs manufacturer, big and small stores have since been flooded with CFL bulbs

with about four brands, variously priced (as when a bulb is single tube or U, 2-U or 3-U type, or higher in wattage or quality). In my two homes, my 40-watt, 20-watt and 10watt old type fluorescent bulbs are still in good use for over two years now. I understand that each bulb has its own life span, determined by the number of hours used. My CFL bulbs are frequently replaced. Since it is not always true that I would have extra cash to purchase replacement bulbs, I have learned to buy and store extra CFL bulbs. I know of one big government office that has sometime ago started using again the old type of fluorescent bulbs. The CFL

Updates on Filipino Researchers R & D Contributions Part I - From FNRI-DOST

Recently, the Department of Science and Technology have been hitting the national dailies in recognition for its low-salaried and fringe-benefits starved R & D workers’ research outputs! These negative factors have not deterred their commitment to serve the country and the Filipino people guided by the mandate heaped upon by the government. Thus, their S & T workers, have been instrumental for the following research outputs that are worthy of pat on their backs! Thus1. ‘Polvoron-like Calamity Food A product developed by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRIDOST), nutritionists, is a

“variation of the of the Filipino powdered milk delicacy “polvoron” but of the healthier kin.” Its formulation is a blend of vegetable flour, fat, sugar and other ingredients and compressed to provide carbohydrates and protein – thus, its name as “compressed food”. This food preparation, passed through a compression machine, comes in round or rectangular shapes, like commercial milk-based polvoron. Also referred to as Calamity Food, it has an estimated shelf life of 6 – 12 months and recommended by the FNRI to be served at evacuation centers in times of calamities. The FNRI compressing machine can make as much as 600,000 packets of ca-

lamity food with 4 pieces per packet. Particulars about the Calamity Food may be obtained from the DOST Regional Offices and/or the Provincial Science and Technology Centers. 2. Addressing Micronutrient Deficiency The same DOST agency, FNRI, has authoritatively reported on the micronutrient deficiency among Filipinos. Micronutrients are, in fact vitamins and minerals, though taken in by man in small amounts, have a huge impact on his/ her health. Specifically, micronutrients come in the form of Iron, Zinc, Vitamin A, and others. These play vital role in man’s body systems, ranging from “physical growth and vision, to brain vigor and increased immunity.” Failure or insufficient intake of man’s body with micronutrients create in what is called as “hidden hunger” causing serious health problems to man. In their studies, FNRI re-

Penning literary pieces

Certain steps have to be observed in writing literary pieces. The first of which is to make up your mind as to what literary form do you intend to write. Is it a poem, a short story, or an essay? The discussion that follows explains the structure of each of these literary genres. Writing a poem A poem’s structure refers to how it is written using a certain form, evidenced by how it appears on a page. It consists of syllables (or consonantvowel combinations), feet (or groups of syllables), lines (or feet combinations), and stanzas (or groups of lines). In metrical versifications, the number of syllables in each foot, and the question of which syllable is accented, depend on whether the line is iam-

bic, dactylic, anapestic, trochaic, etc. For example, if a foot consists of three syllables, and the last syllable is accented, then the foot is an anapest. If it consists of two syllables, the last syllable of which is accented, the foot is an iamb. In free verse, which is the more frequented form among poets nowadays, such arrangements do not apply as this type of poetry does not observe the rules of versification. It doesn’t have a rhyme scheme, nor does it follow rhythmical and metrical measurements. In terms of form and structure, it enjoys total freedom, concentrating only on the use of imagery, symbolism, and other poetic elements. In writing a poem, the first thing you need to do is to think of an idea, or a principle, or a certain truth. This is otherwise known

as theme, the controlling idea which you can express in your poem by way of symbols, images, etc. If you don’t want to go for a theme, you may just go for an experience and write a poem about it. The next thing you need to do is to decide who your speaker (persona) will be, to whom is he/she talking to, and what is he/she talking about. You should also provide a sort of background for your poem, a dramatic situation, a climactic progression, and a strong ending where you drive home your point. All these have to be done using only a few and carefully chosen words. For example, I am thinking of a guy who was utterly rejected by the girl he truly loves. Using this desperate guy as my speaker, I can write a poem like this: My wish I wish I could also inhale the air that escapes off your nostrils so I could share something that came from your bosom. I won’t release this air if that’s the only thing you could give me. I’d rather hold my breath for all eternity.

vealed that 70-80% of Filipinos lack iron and vitamin A in their daily food intake. Zinc, a trace mineral, “plays a role in human body metabolism, reproductive health, immune function, and more than 200 important chemical reactions in the body.” Thus, a person suffering from “hidden hunger” is prone to “. . . suffer from nutritional problems, including stunting, fatigue, poor concentration, lack of focus, and other signs of impaired of physical performance and frequent absenteeism as a result of impaired immunity.” FNRI researchers have singled out affordable sources of micronutrients by recommending among others, BEAR BRAND Powdered Milk Drink, for children because it is fortified with iron, zinc, vitamin C, plus Calcium – properly labeled with the above tibay resistensya nutrients. ooo000ooo NEXT TOPIC : “Updates on Filipino Researchers R & D Contributions” Part II – From S.E.A.F.D.E.C. SHARE S & T THOUGHTS thru E-mail: drpacjr@yahoo.com. See to it that in your poem, you are able to provide the readers, though briefly, with background on what the situation is and why, what the poem is all about, who the speaker is, and what he intends to do as a result of what happened. In the process, try to use concrete images that reinforce truths and meanings or symbolize something. Make use, too, of figures of speech like hyperbole, metaphor, etc. for emphasis and beauty of expression. If possible, use only simple words for originality and freshness. Remember that depth in poetry, if that’s what you are after, doesn’t come from high sounding words, but from the meaning expressed. The line “I see the world in a grain of sand,” for instance, doesn’t have a “big” word in it, but its meaning is so deep, seemingly inexhaustible one can write a book just to unearth its embedded meanings. That’s what a poem should be— pregnant with inexhaustible meanings. You unearth some, but you know more meanings are buried in its lines. Finally, make sure to drive home the point emphatically at the end. This you can do by using the

bulbs have been proven to be more expensive and fast dimming or busting. Like others, I have noticed that the frequent, often unannounced brownouts – these days, after around 3 or 10 minutes, power interruptions occur, whether in Samar or in Leyte (Philippines) – have been causing damages to some electrical appliances, including desktop computers. These situations are very, very bad. Poor Juan de la Cruz gets victimized further, already somewhat endlessly.

These worse events are apart from the undue “legal holdups” which electric cooperatives had been staging each time they impose and charge for such anomalous events as “systems losses”. A systems loss, whether you like it or not, is a penalty and punishment, and the one imposing it is acting like a court, except that it is an unjust “court” because it does not pinpoint the perpetrator of the electric energy “loss”, does not file a complaint and never gives a paying power consumer an opportunity to face the accuser cooperative.

THE PARDON OF THE SINFUL WOMAN A Pharisee invited [Jesus] to dine with him, and he entered the Pharisee’s house and reclined at table. Now there was a sinful woman in the city who learned that he was at table in the house of the Pharisee. Bringing an alabaster flask if ointment, she stood behind him at his feet weeping and began to bathe his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them, and anointed them with the ointment. When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would know who and what sort of woman this is who is touching him, that she is a sinner.” Jesus said to him in reply, “Simon, I have something to say to you.” “Tell me, teacher,” he said. Two people were in debt to a certain creditor; one owed five hundred days’ wages and the other owed fifty. Since they were unable to repay the debt, he forgave it for both. Which of them will love him more?” Simon said in reply, “The one, I suppose, whose larger debt was forgiven.” He said to him, “You have judge rightly.” Then he turned to the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? When I entered your house you did not give me water for my feet, but she has bathed them with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You did not give me a kiss but she has not ceased kissing my feet since the time I entered. You dif not anoint my head with oil, but she anointed my feet with ointment. So I tell you her many sins have been forgiven; hence, she has shown great love. But the one to whom little is forgiven, loves little.” He said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” The others at table said to themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?” But he said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”

A FAKE HOUSE In London there is a building called: The House that Never Was. It has no door bell or letter box. Nobody visits. Nobody sits on the balcony. More than a million people have walked by, but never noticed anything strange. In fact, it is a fake house cemented on a brick wall. It hides the entrance to an ugly subway tunnel; and has been painted to blend with nearby homes. Appearances are deceptive. Do we hide ugliness, loneliness, and insecurity behind a ‘sham’ front of composure? Do we judge others by their appearances? St. Paul tells Timothy: “Let no one despise your youth.” Because, though he appeared young, he had been entrusted to set “an example (to his people) in speech and conduct” (1 Tim 4:12).” From the Gospel too, we learn that public ascriptions of status can be deceptive. The woman was known to be a sinner, but she had a heart filled with repentant love. Whereas, the Pharisees who represented a law that called for forgiveness, had not forgiven the woman. (Lk 7:30). Outside show is a poor substitute for inner worth. Fine words and insinuating appearance are seldom associated with true virtue. They are not all saints who use holy water!

Tricky....

from page 5

tion came into being, I was among the few who had been opposing it as unconstitutional and iniquitous. I have always been arguing that that loss only reflects the kind of management an electric cooperative has. A power loss could be averted in many ways, except that it has appeared to many that managers of electric cooperatives are not doing the right thing, first, by failing to pick the right way. In Tacloban highly urbanized city, only very few big business establishments had been caught, and publicly declared, as thieving electric power supplied by Leyte II Electric Cooperative. Intelligent Taclobanons, while welcoming those twin moves, expressed disbelief why only two or three such thieves were sacked. They know that their neighbours, even in slum areas, have

long ago been into illegal electrical connections. And they more than just know that the electric cooperative just doesn’t do its duty of say, doing spot inspections of homes, and then houses that have rooms for rent. In this light, it is the co-op’s own board of directors and manager who are the culprits for systems losses, and therefore, they should be included in charge sheets and be compelled to pay for the levies on such losses, in addition to incarceration, which they all deserve. It is not acceptable to this column that co-ops argue, in their favor, that those past and present or ongoing systems loss charges underwent passage via consultations or assemblies, or action by higher authorities in government (which have assumed quasi-judicial powers or authority). Apart from the systems loss charges, there are other impositions that are reflected in electric bills which should be excluded from every bill because paying power consumers are not directly in those events for which such impositions are made. Daku ini nga pangawat. Manggud, diri la maaringasa an mga konsumidor. But this should not be exploited by the electric power personalities. Such

NEWS weakness on the part of the silently complaining public should not be used as an alibi to justify those contemptuous charges. We must stress the point, electricity is one product being sold and an item which a buyer pays for. You only buy electricity, and you pay for its price. You do not pay for anything outside what you buy. Pareho ba hit pagpalit hin bugas, or bottled mineral water. Diri ka nabayad gawas hit presyo han bugas ug mineral water. Upod na iton han kwentada han pagpresyo, sama pananglitan han supot o sando bag nga susudlan han bugas, o plastic ngan takop han botelya nga sinudlan han mineral water. Ha bugas ug mineral water, nga sugad hit koryente adlawadlaw ginkikinahanglan naton, diri ka ginsusuk’tan han anuman nga nawawara o mawawara o diri nimo nakikita ha paghatag ha imo han imo ginpapalit. Ikaw nga nagbabaligya mismo an may hul-os nga obligasyon pagproteher han imo ginbabaligya. This is not what is happening with the electricity that we buy and pay for. You have not seen the exact place where the systems loss was observed, and yet you are simply told that that loss did occur, and that even if you did not cause

Leyte Samar Daily Express

that loss, you must pay for it. This is illogical. Kanan panulay ug manunulay ini tutdo, an magbayad ka han kanan iba pagpasibaya o kasay’panan o pangawat. That is why, many times before, I had been arguing that electric cooperatives, being a cooperative existing because of its members who are supposed to be the boss and lord – therefore, they always have the last say and have the ultimate right to complain against any practice by any officer in their co-op – should make all appointive positions, whether management level, staff, technical, or administrative available for no more than two years (24 months) for every appointed individual.

Through this way, every member will have the opportunity to prepare his or her own qualifications, or those of the members of his or her family, resulting in job rotation among its members and in huge savings, as well as in stifling attempts to steal away money and other resources from the co-op’s assets. Today, members are actually owners or bosses only in name. The real owners and bosses are those who get their daily or weekly or monthly wages or salaries plus allowances and other benefits from the co-op, being employees. The rest are excluded and only made to obey and nothing more, no matter how they express their personal convictions.
