Search for ‘missing’ plane in Naval, Biliran called off BY JOEY A. GABIETA & SARWELL Q. MENIANO

This was confirmed by TACLOBAN CITY – Short of calling it as a hoax, the search operations for the reported Col. Nedy Espulgar, commissing plane in an upland village of Naval, Biliran was terminated yesterday afternoon, manding officer of the 19th Infantry Battalion, after rescuers found no traces of a plane crash. whose group of soldiers joined in the search of the reported missing private plane. Espulgar, in a phone interview, said that the decision of the search group was arrived after they have concluded that there was no plane that crashed in the forested area of Barangay Imelda. “We have decided to terminate the search operations as we concluded that there was no such incident. The group has search the area where

the alleged plane crash incident happened and there was no indication of such,” Espulgar said. The search team, he added, has not found any evidence or wreckage of the supposed plane that crashed in Imelda, eight kilometers away from the town proper. “Rescuers confirmed that there’s no plane crash incident after a thorough aerial and ground survey,” said Biliran provincial disaster and risk reduction management officer Socronio Dacillo, Jr. in a mobile phone interview. to page 2

RSOG nabs Catbalogan city dad’s son, ex-army in buy-bust

CAMP KANGLEON, Palo, Leyte – Two suspected drug pushers, including the son of a city councilor, were arrested in a hotel room in Catbalogan City Tuesday afternoon while another one was nabbed in Tacloban City early Wednesday morning in anti-illegal drugs operations by the Regional Special Operations Group (RSOG) of the Police Regional Office 8 (PRO8). Nabbed by the RSOG, headed by Insp. Constantino Jabonete, Jr., were 40year old Roel Arcales, son of Catbalogan city councilor Ernesto Arcales, who is also the city’s former three-term mayor and former three-term vice governor of Samar province. Arcales was arrested by the RSOG team after he and his cohort, identified as Anthonie Lou Bugal, 35, a former member of Philippine Army and a native of Javier, Leyte, sold “shabu” to a police agent,

from page 1 The rescue operation started Tuesday morning after some residents reported to Mayor Susan Parilla that they’ve seen a small plane crashed into a mountainous area. Witnesses also recounted that they have seen smokes from the crash site. The search team, aside from soldiers of the 19th IB, was composed of mountaineers led by Naval Councilor Mario Opeña, local

said PCSupt. Elmer R. Soria, PRO8 director. The police official informed that at around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, the suspects were nabbed in a buybust operation at GV Hotel along Rizal Avenue in Catbalogan that also resulted in the confiscation of sizeable amount of suspected methamphetamine hydrochloride or “shabu”, several drug paraphernalia and a.45 caliber pistol. The poseur-buyer bought from Arcales one big heat-sealed plastic sachet, locally known as bulto, containing suspected “shabu” granules with a street value of P4,000, Soria said. Also confiscated from the suspects were 16 heatsealed plastic sachet containing suspected “shabu” weighing more or less 4 grams worth P20,000 and four pieces P1,000-bills used as buybust money. Subsequently, the team also confiscated several drug paraphernalia that in-

cludes one unit Diamond Model 500 digital weighing scale; improvised tooters; lighters; 2 scissors; empty sachets; and aluminum foils. One .45 caliber Colt pistol with two magazines loaded with six ammunitions each and two unit Samsung mobile phones were also seized by the police. The suspected drugs; paraphernalia and marked money were brought to the Regional Crime Laboratory Office 8 for appropriate laboratory examination while suspects are now detained at the lock-up cell of Catbalogan City Police Station. “If the court finds them guilty violating the law, then let the axe fall where it may,” Soria said, adding that cases for violation of the illegal drugs law were filed against the suspects, aside from illegal possession of firearms charges. Meanwhile, the RSOG team in Tacloban City ar-

Mayor Parilla, in an earlier interview, said that there was no “fallen trees” in the area that could have indicated that there was a plane that fell down as revealed to her by the TOG team. Parilla also said that nobody came up to her looking for a missing person. Espulgar said that the team terminated their

search at around 1 p.m. on Wednesday, just 15 minutes after they abandoned the supposed area where the plane reportedly crashed. The alleged plane crash incident was reported to Mayor Parilla by Imelda village chief, Max Jutara. Jutara got the information from one of her residents, Maria Tambis. Tambis claimed that she saw a plane that zoomed down to the forested area of their village and saw a bluishcolored flame followed

by a loud explosion. The reported crash site is estimated to be around 30 kilometers away from the town proper of Naval, the capital of Biliran province and adjacent to Culaba town.

Dinvir Revita after selling P1,000 worth of suspected “shabu” to a police poseur-buyer at 1:00 a.m. Wednesday. The suspect was brought to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) office for documentation and temporary safekeeping while a case in violation of Section 5, Art.

81 hired by City Hall not only qualified but ‘essential’ TACLOBAN CITYThe 81 persons hired under the administration of Mayor Alfred Romualdez were not only qualified to their respective positions but were also “essential” in helping run the city government. Thus said city administrator Tecson John Lim, adding that they are not hiding anything when they hired the “professional services” of the 81 persons, who included a former city councilor. “This is something that the city government never denies or ashamed of,” Lim said during the City Hall-sponsored media conference “Kapihan ha Kanhuraw,” held yesterday. Lim also promised to even identify the individuals hired by the city government for “professional services” in the next media conference to prove that they are not hiding anything. Based on a document, the 81 persons were hired for various designations and working under the Office of the City Mayor. The posts they held ranged from media and medical works to legal matters and on information technology, among others.

The 81 persons receive P10,000 up to P20,000 a month. Lim added that it was the various department heads of the City Hall that sought for the hiring of these persons and not the mayor himself. “They were not selected by Mayor Romualdez but by the department heads that need certain services and competencies,” the administrator said. Human resources personnel officer Teofila Brosas also defended the 81 persons, saying that they were hired on the strength of their qualifications. “And there is no overlapping of services and functions (among personnel in the City Hall),” Brosas said, adding that at present, the City Hall lacks middle or technical people reason why these persons were hired. Lim said that those hired by the City Hall were “professionals that the city government really needs.” “They are essential (to the works of the City Hall),” the administrator said. Lim disclosed that there is a big void of technical people at the City Hall. He cited, in particular, the lack of personnel at the

Absence of siren delays curfew implementation TACLOBAN CITY – The city council of Tacloban is still waiting for the reply of the Bureau of Fire Protection as response to a resolution of passed by the Association of Barangay Chairmen in the city that seeks their help in the re-implementation of a curfew hour that was last implemented during the incumbency of former city mayor Uldarico Mate. Vice Mayor Jerry Yaokasin said that the BFP must sound their siren every 10 p.m. to signal the

start of the curfew in the city as mandated under Ordinance No. 97-48. However, the BFP said that they cannot implement yet the request of the city council as they are still waiting for the siren they requested from the city government to be used in the implementation of curfew hour. The curfew will not only be implemented within the city proper but in the entire jurisdiction of Tacloban to prevent those below 18 years old from roaming city

streets during night time. “Enforcing night time curfew is a proactive way in curbing gang violence and other criminal activities that usually happen at night in the city proper,” said Yaokasin. Vice Mayor Yaokasin said that although the curfew could curb or lessen the presence of teenagers in city streets during night time, the final responsibility would still on their parents who should take care and guide them in their early age.

MANIFESTO AGAINST ALL KINDS OF PORK 9 September 2013

The Asian Institute of Journalism and Communication condemns in the strongest terms the pork barrel and the corruption that it has bred, whether in the legislative or the executive branch of government. In the pursuit of truth and justice, we express our outrage over an evil system that wantonly assigns huge lump sums of the people’s money and scandalously allows these sums to be used without accountability or transparency. We make known our indignation over the betrayal committed by those stewards of the people’s funds who have callously and wrongfully enriched themselves, their families and their cohorts through their privileged access to the pork barrel. We unequivocally hold our leaders accountable and require them, as representatives of the sovereign Filipino people, to stop the plunder of the government treasury and the mockery of our democratic order by abolishing the pork barrel. The pork barrel, with its discretionary and unaccountable billions of pesos, has been shamelessly used to perpetuate power and privilege in the midst of pervasive poverty and widespread deprivation. It has, therefore, been an instrument in perpetuating the exclusion of the greater mass of our people from what our Constitution envisions as a just and humane society. The pork barrel, by allowing legislators to be involved in the execution of projects that they choose to fund, violates the provisions of the Constitution on the separation of powers. It makes a mockery of one of the foundations of our democratic system. The pork barrel, by making legislators personally involved in the speedy passage of the annual budget, renders them ineffective in checking the excesses of the Executive branch when the latter presents its proposed budget for the year. The pork barrel, therefore, interferes with the system of checks and balances which is supposed to reduce opportunities for the abuse of power and strengthen stability in governance. We urgently call on the President to exercise his political and moral ascendancy to act in the interest of the Filipino people. We exhort him to show that he is indeed the “President of the People” by: (1) Demonstrating transparency by giving an account on the legislators who have availed of their PDAF for the entire period of his term, the purpose, and the names of beneficiaries (2) Leading the way by itemizing and documenting all discretionary lump sum funds in the Office of the President’s budget (3) Abolishing the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) and other lump sums like the Special Purpose Fund (SPF) from the General Appropriations Act (GAA) (4) Including all off-budget funds and remittances, such as the Malampaya Fund, remittances to the Office of the President from the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. (PAGCOR), and Motor Vehicles User’s Charge, in the GAA and itemizing them with full transparency and accountability. We call on Congress and the President to pass the Freedom of Information Bill to help institutionalize transparency and accountability in governance. We call on all genuine nongovernment organizations (NGOs) to continue their good work in helping build a progressive, peaceful, equitable and just democratic society. We call on our local government officials to be in the forefront of weeding out corruption in leadership by being exemplars of good and effective governance in their LGUs. We call on all communication schools, academic partners, and media agencies to continue to be vigilant so that truth may be told. We unite with the Filipino people as we pursue truth and justice on this issue of the pork barrel. Let the violators be called to account. Let the wheels of justice roll on the guilty. Let transparency and accountability be upheld. Let us stand firm and keep faith as we safeguard our democracy.

Coward

A

midst all the chaos and trouble brought by the new issue on the pork barrel fund, there are those who, by sheer lack of attention or otherwise, itch at either dancing under the spotlight or stealing it altogether. Take for instance Nur Misuari and his Moro National Liberation Font who, just a few days prior and out of nowhere, up and went to sow terror in the peaceful city of Zamboanga. But while they may have stolen the limelight from the pork, we are to be sure that it is only temporary what with the maddened millions who have gotten pissed that they got ransacked of their hard-earned dough. The funny thing about the current mishap in Mindanao is that it all has something to do with the MNLF’s attempt to hoist their flag in the city hall of Zamboanga although admittedly, it has deeper roots. Definitely, the reper-

cussions of Misuari’s rampage are not at all amusing. It killed a few, wounded some more, and rendered the entire Zamboanga a city living in fear. It is not less harrowing that some of those who were fortunate to live another day to tell MNLF’s gruesome tale are up to now still negotiating with the barrels of their guns having been used by them practically as human shields. There is no denying that, like their twisted leader who does not himself participate in the sowing of terror but makes his minions do his biddings for him at a distance, this is a cowardly act from men who take up arms to make a point. There is indeed no point in debating that when a man who passes off to be principled cowers behind another life to save his own, he is everything but. He is, in every sense of the word, a coward.

Clean-up time for national and local issues ... ready yet? It is hard to settle the Muslim-initiated conflicts (bloody and murderous wars) in certain parts of Mindanao and down further south to Jolo. There cannot be a lasting peace, for as long as there are muslims in that place which appears to have been first populated and dominated by them since before Fernao de Magalhaes landed on Homonhon island on March 16, 1521. There may be relative peace, but that cannot stay for long. Muslim factions just cannot resist historical proddings that keep them moving across lands. Religion and even Christianity or Catholicism itself failed to recast that deeprooted Muslimism urge. Even if all men were unarmed and never knew how to use weapons of war,

muslim beliefs would persist, insisting as their own version of history and geography would, decades after decades or centuries after centuries. Perhaps, now has come the time to resurvey and re-postulate international law. Punishment should be available where peoples subjugated by government force or rule refuse to respect that rule of a vic-

tor. Punishment should be meted where peoples arm themselves and don’t give up their arms. Failure here would in the long run vindicate gangsterism. But meanwhile, today, calls for an immediate stop to exchanges of fire should also cover a total stop by each adversary in the Mindanao strife to opportunism and adventurism: it is evil to step forward while talks

are in progress. Nur Misuari’s 200 or so armed war-men, who proclaimed their version of “independence”, simply exceeded what limited authority government extended them since the time of Fidel V. Ramos’ presidency. Their unthinkable violent ways of late cannot be ignored by the greater majority of the Filipino nation. Some concerned ones simply repudiate their moves as a comic attempt to deny the nation of its focus on the Janet Lim Napoles strings of scam cases or the more serious deliberation on the pork barrel. Nur’s group and the other war factions may know their grain of salt, but today is simply not the time for them to be crying like

God’s servant, research advocate, now a President

It’s a rare mix for science and religion for God’s creation to head an academic institution, especially if the subject is a Sister, a Nun!. Indeed, we have read about Priests being appointed as president of religious schools and colleges in the Philippines. Very exemplary was former President of Ateneo de Manila University, Fr. Nebres, a respected person in the field of Mathematics. It is customary for religious schools to elect as President or Rector from among members of their Orders, but rarely are personalities honed in the field of science and theology. In Region 8, specifical-

ly Tacloban City, one of the newest Tertiary Level Institutions – St. Scholastica’s College of Health Sciences later to be known as St. Scholastica College of Tacloban – recently installed a Nun whose academic foundation has been in natural science. Referred to here is SIS M. JULIA C. YAP, OSB, Ph.D., who assumed as the 5th President of the SSCT on July 19th. (Whether it was coincidental or purposely held in July ‘for her English name July’, is better left to the Order of St. Benedictine’s discretion). One thing is certain, SSCT recognizes the need to have a “mix” of sciencefounded Sister as Head of their highly acclaimed

institution committed to develop and produce outstanding graduates from Leyte and the entire of Region 8. What made this writer feature Sis Julia (as fondly called), in this column, was not only the insinuation by the good LSDE Publisher Mr. Macy Grafil, but more importantly for his linkage with the newly installed SSCT Prexy. The linkage, very academic, traces back to the days she was taking up her Doctorate Degree in Science at the Graduate School, University of Sto. Tomas. This writer was then in his 5th year as Faculty Member of the UST-GS teaching all marine science-related subjects and Japanese Language, where he produced 11 M. Sc. and 3 Ph.D. in Biological Sciences graduates. One the doctoral students was Sis. Julia C. Yap –also, her dissertation adviser! Her doctoral dissertation problem was on the “Systematics of the Economically Useful

People’s expectation

Now that the government has supposedly gotten started to run after the scalawags in various agencies involved in massive irregularities, people all over the country and around the world are watching, and trying to determine, if the present regime is indeed serious in this campaign. Every move relative to this issue is being monitored, thanks to the fourth state, the media, that doesn’t tire in focusing on it, if only to provide the nation with reliable information as to how things go amid rumored attempts by some groups to divert focus and attention to some other things so they could maneuver to elude the people’s rage and judgmental scrutiny. Yes, people are now fed up with probes of countless scams before that simply went no-

where. They are used to hearing about the fact that justice system in this country only works when the offenders are common and ordinary people. But when those involved are huge figures in society equipped with power and immense wealth, the laws are toothless against them. The government then is put to the test if it really is serious this time. Its political will is being gauged if it is not selective in pursuing what it considers corrupt personalities. People do not doubt that it will run after such figures, especially those who belong to the opposition. But as regards those who are allies to the present administration, people doubt they will ever be pursued for the purpose, corrupt though these folks are. Although this is expected as a normal thing the fact that the adminis-

tration is likely to come to their rescue, the citizens demand otherwise. They expect that the government will be fair enough to exercise judgment, without respect of persons. It should run after those corrupt legislators, whether they belong to its allies or to the opposition. In short, there should be no politics in this chase to rid this anti-corruption campaign of doubts and suspicions. And, again, there should be no respect for powerful and influential figures, whoever they are. People expect that plunder charges are filed against those who are figured to have been in partnership with Janet Lim Napoles, in the pork barrel scam. At least, it will convince everyone the government is dead serious in pursuing the guilty ones. It is common knowledge that the moneyed, when cornered with legal charges, simply pay their way out and eventually get away with their crimes. These wealthy individuals allegedly involved in the scam are expected to do the same, and enjoy the same exit, but at least, the government shall have

Seaweeds in Central Visayas”. Her having taken her graduate studies was not confined to the classroom activities, which she excelled in, but extended it in the field when I would oblige all students to dive and collect seaweeds/marine algae specimens for laboratory studies. Dressed appropriately and ready to get soaked in seawater, she would dive together with her classmates with no qualms at all! Such is one quality of a science researcher that Sis Julia is, who, like this writer, frowns at the so-called “Swivel-Chair Researchers” – ever dependent of working on specimens gathered by other people! In comparison, this writer’s first Master’s Degree advisee was also a Nun, but shuns from getting wet during field collections per “… her Order’s Regulations”. Sis Yap was this writer’s first Doctorate Degree advisee – others in the science community would jokingly say that I am “blessed” as a S & T worker, a joke that I take seriously to this date, indeed! In her acceptance speech, she invasions, aside from attaining academic excellence, is to inject RESEARCH-consciousness among teachers and students hand-in-hand with teaching and studying, respectively. I would not be surprised to see young Leyteno science researchers produced by SSCT and joining the anemic pool of science-oriented Waray-Warays. This has been the vision of this writer to find, not only one Leyteno to be recognized nationally/internationally for his/her research contributions to science, but more and more TOYMs, TOWNS, and OYS (Outstanding Young Scientist). SSCT is doubly fortunate to have among its faculty line-up DR. ANTONIO LIM, JR., now VP for Acadone its part in running after them, not just doing nothing at all. Anyway, at the moment, the entire nation is glued to this issue, eagerly watching how things are going to unravel, particularly paying attention to how the government handles its anti-corruption crusade, expecting to see big personalities behind bars as a result so corruption in this country will somehow lessen, and corrupt individuals will decrease in number.

Give to everyone who asks of you, and from the one who takes what is yours do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you. For if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do the same. If you lend money to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit (is) that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, and get back the same amount. But rather, love your enemies and do good to them, and lend expecting nothing back; then your reward will be great and you will be children of the Most High, for he himself is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked. Be merciful, just as (also) your Father is merciful. Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven. Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.”

NOT LIKE RATTLESNAKES! Some of the most unhappy people in the world are those with emotional photographic memories. They never forget hurts. Every slight ever received is permanently etched in their minds. Some continue to be angry with people who have died years ago. Much unhappiness in life could be eliminated if we extended forgiveness generously and freely. St, Paul begs the Colossians to forgive each other, reminding them, “as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive”(Col 3:13). Jesus goes further and commands, “love your enemies, do good to those who hate you” (Lk 6:27). For one thing, we do not do any good to ourselves by hating those who have hurt us. A trapped rattlesnake can become so angry that it will bite itself. So too, we end up ‘biting’ ourselves not our enemies, when we refuse to forgive them. How do we handle anger and resentment when they begin to take control of us? It may help to recite affirmations such as these: “Beginning now, I release all grudges and hatred. Beginning now, I extend good will towards those who have caused me pain. I allow God’s love to flow over me and heal my memories. I allow God’s love to flow through me, empowering me to forgive.” (His Word for Today, published by Paulines Publishing House, visit us at www.paulines.ph or at Paulines Media Center, Real St., Tacloban City, Tel. #321-31-95) Sower’s Seeds: “Jesus Christ merited grace for us. By means of our prayer, especially by means of the Eucharist, we can in some way, recover the lost gift of integrity. The person who prays obtains the gift of actual grace, such grace is strength for the will and light for the mind; it helps reduce our whims and the concupiscence of the flesh.”– Blessed James Alberione, Founder of the Pauline Family

*** Congratulations to the Tacloban highly urbanized city government for finally listening to persistent calls (since the onset of the month that called for disaster preparedness, during which this humble writer restated the need to clean up all canals in the HUC to rid them of mosquitoes, cockroaches and causes of flooding)! Early this week, some stretches of canals had been cleaned up. The clean-up team, however, met some resistance elsewhere. But it was always right on insisting that canals be thoroughly drained, dredged, declogged, cleared and cleaned, even if they have been used, and even if they are still being used, as toilets or “septic tanks” of some lazy, stubborn, stupid, and savage, less

educated, individuals (some, QN was quipped by friendly police agents, known to be recalcitrant drug users or peddlers, or fugitives of law, or hiding from possible reprisals from victims in Metro Manila, but have preferred to make Tacloban as their safe hideaway!!! – why don’t police operatives hound them?). It was heroic of the canal cleaners since last weekend. Yet, they should retread what they already cleaned up. Just like what Leyte Metropolitan Water District should be doing where it had been trying to check and correct leaks on pipes and road surfaces or sides, as well as for presence of sand or soil and other particulates. It had deployed a team last week. One pay-per-container water service system had all its public faucets opened for hours, to the delight of families nearby who took their time filling containers for free as LMWD’s team let all

water force out whatever was borne in it. The water check perhaps just temporarily stopped, and that same team may want to recheck and recheck what it had already cleaned up, such as that at Barangay 5 in the HUC. Well, at home, the volume of water-borne sand had been minimized drastically, but still, there is sand in the water. LMWD must exert more efforts to rid the sand out of all its installed pipes. *** On the evil-sounding excess money fat issue that had already taken legal twists, here’s the latest development: As far as the Senate is concerned, the Supreme Court’s (SC) temporary restraining order (TRO) against the release of this year’s remaining priority development assistance funds (PDAF) is moot and academic, Senator Chiz Escudero said. Escudero, chairman of the senate committee on finance said

machines and equipment in the working areas which is a requirement to become good manufacturing practice (GMP)-certified. “Though small, their plan to establish a processing center remained useless because of the huge investment needed that is beyond their capacity. With the facility in place, processed bangus products from Babatngon can now compete with other food products in the market in terms of quality, availability and affordability,” Belas said. The facility, which include multifunction smokehouse, chest freezer and stainless working tables were turned over last week to the association of women, through the local government unit of Babatngon. Belas said that through the SSF project, the preidentified production gaps and bottlenecks brought about by the absence and unavailability of necessary equipment will be addressed and the quality and productivity of microenterprises and bangus processors within and outside Babatngon will be improved. “We are optimistic that the facility will result to more competitive food

Meanwhile, DTI Regional Director Cynthia Nierras said the agency is planning to implement more SSF projects in the region this year to provide the micro, small and medium entrepreneurs (MSMEs) a common service area with better technology and equipment. “The project could help the entrepreneurs tap a wider market and be integrated in the global supply chain,” Nierras said. “It enables MSMEs to further several steps in the product development and execution stages by bringing the SSF within their reach for certain processes requiring equipment or machinery,” Nierras added. She said that SSF is vital as the MSMEs cannot normally acquire as individual enterprises equipment or machinery due to huge capital investment. It complements existing assistance package to the MSMEs in the areas of technology, product development and packaging. “By being able to give them these equipment, they will be able to avail of technology that otherwise they won’t have access to because they don’t have the capital to do so,” Nierras said. It was learned that Eastern Visayas is one of the four pilot regions for the SSF project. DTI-8 is currently assisting about 160 MSMEs particularly food processors. “We are pushing for inclusive growth and to achieve such, MSMEs should be developed, especially in the rural areas,” Nierras added.
