THE number of people killed in the wake of tropical storm “Sendong” (international name: Washi) reached 1,026 as more bodies were recovered Wednesday in Lanao del Norte and Cagayan de Oro City in Northern Mindanao, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said.

“Many people are still missing in Iligan City, Lanao del Norte. We lost count of how many missing persons from the storm. I just came from there,” NDRRMC Executive Director Benito Ramos told reporters over the telephone Wednesday afternoon. Ramos said the total

number of fatalities so far was broken down as 650 in Cagayan de Oro; 299 in Iligan City; 17 in Bukidnon province; 44 in Negros Oriental; one in Cebu province; three in Zamboanga del Norte; five in Compostela Valley; one in Surigao del Sur; four in Lanao del Sur, and two in Camarines Sur.

Nawala, nakita, ug naluwas gikan kang Sendong Sinulat ni PJ TREMEDAL

M O B O D, O r o q u i e t a City––Nakita ug naluwas ang usa ka mangingisda nga mi-uban sa panon sa mang“lumayagan”(cattlefish) niadtong panahon sa wala pa mihapak si Bagyong Sendong. Nasayran sa Mindanao Daily-Western Mindanao Bureau nga nitaho sa CDRRMC sa pagkuso-kuso ni Sendong nga usa ka mangingisda ang nawala

didto sa lawud sa Oroquieta atbang sa Iligan Bay. Matud pa ang maong mangingisda naila nga si Edwin Indunto, hamtong ang pangidaron ug nagpuyo sa Purok 6, Barangay Mobod ning syudad nga sumala pa mikuyog sa usa ka panon sa mang“lumayagan” nga giguyod ug usa ka de-makinang sakyanan-dagat paingon sa lawod.

UN prexy alarmed over storm’s death toll in PH THE United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) President Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser on Tuesday expressed “deep concern” over the death of nearly 1,000 people in the Philippines hit by Tropic Storm Washi. “The president of the General Assembly com-

mends the authorities and everyone involved for their valiant efforts in assisting all those affected by this tragedy and takes note of the declaration of a ‘national calamity’ by the government of the Philippines,” said a statement released by AlNasser’s spokesperson.

In the statement, AlNasser urged “all member states and the international community to continue to increase assistance to the thousands of victims and communities affected by this tragedy.” The Philippines suffered heavy loss of lives and dam-

age in the flooding caused by tropical storm Washi that struck its southern region on Saturday. The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) reported that most of the casualties were from the provinces of Misamis Oriental and

Lanao del Norte. More than 60,000 families in southern Philippines have been displaced by floods and landslides. This is one of the worst calamities that hit the region for the past few years. Philippine President Benigno Aquino III has placed

the cities of Cagayan de Oro in Misamis Oriental and Iligan in Lanao del Norte under state of calamity. The social welfare department and local government officials sent P8.2 million (US$ 186,533) worth of relief supplies to help families affected by the typhoon.

Aneco gikan sa pahina 1

Lawyer Nestor Escalona, chief legal officer of BIR-Caraga, told reporters that Aneco (Coop) complied with all the requirements set by the law for the application for exemption but was unaware that a case filed by Aneco (Inc.) against ACOA was still pending in court. Escalona also said that taxes can still be imposed on selected charges. Presently, the fight for who will serve the entire province of Agusan del Norte and Butuan City is going on. But Santos of Aneco (Inc.) was not surprised on the action of Aneco (Coop) and was just waiting for the court to rule out who really is the true management. Santos said there was an injunction order by the court to ACOA and Rosales not to execute any referendum, in fact a TRO [Temporary Restraining Order] was also granted

in favor of Aneco (Inc.), but Rosales and ACOA allegedly did not heed the order. He added that (Rosales and ACOA) group tried to encourage the memberconsumers of Aneco to convert into a cooperative through a petition for a referendum after failing to convince the board of directors on its conversion. The rule states that if the board of directors refuses to conduct a referendum, the memberconsumers may initiate it through a petition duly signed by at least 300 member-consumers of each district of the cooperative as specified under RA 9520. ACOA got 4,500 sign at u re s w h ic h c ou ld have assured them of its referendum, but during the validation of the said member-consumers, it came out that some of it are either deceased, not

in good standing (in paying) or not even a member of the cooperative. Only around 3,000 memberconsumers were qualified during the evaluation and validation of Aneco. “The attempt for a referendum was deliberately initiated by ACOA in line with Aneco (Inc.)’s AGMA this year. With Aneco (Inc.) having its assembly at the provincial capitol having an estimated 9,200 attendees while Aneco (Coop) went on with theirs at FSUU g ymnasium,” said Santos. “They claimed to gather 29-percent of the memberconsumers (20-percent is just needed for a referendum to be approved as required by CDA) to call for the conversion of the cooperative. Again, our office is the only one who can validate if the member-consumers who signed are in good standing or are members of the cooperative, but we did not receive anything from them. If it was validated and came out all those who signed are legitimate, then we have to conform on the decision of the majority,” said Santos. Santos also assumes that if ACOA was able to convince 30,000 members, he added that it could be possible that only 50-percent of the totals are in good standing. “Let me also correct what Mr. Rosales said in their Press Conference that Aneco is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is not true. We are under the National Electrification Administration and we want to remain it that way. All are standardized; we can not even dictate our salaries and BOD’s per diem and does reportorial to their office to avoid any misappropriation of funds of the cooperative. We did not even receive a copy of the registration from CDA or even informed us that a registration was made,” added Santos. As to Pelaez part, she was unaware that a press conference will be done together with the BIR as she was only informed on the day itself. But as the CDA director, she attested on the Aneco’s (Coop) registration based on the presentation of the certificate of registration in front of the media.

a stir in Butuan Cit y as to who will really be credited to control the multi-billion-peso electric cooperative. The Alliance for Consumer Ownership of Aneco (ACOA) led by Mr. Roberto “Obet” Rosales announced to media–– during a press conference attended by Aneco (Coop) interim board of director––the updates of their continued struggle to control the electric cooperative through Aneco (Coop) which was registered with the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) on November 10, 2011 as confirmed by its Regional Director Manuela Pelaez. A certificate of Tax Exemption was also granted to Aneco (Coop) as approved by the Bureau of Internal Revenue Caraga.

December 22, 2011 3 News in focus Cepalco restores 95% of power in Oro, other areas THE Cagayan Electric Power and Light Company, Inc. (CEPALCO) announced yesterday morning that it has restored 95-percent of its service area covering Cagayan de Oro City and the municipalities of Tagoloan, Villanueva and Jasaan, all in the province of Misamis Oriental are back with stable power supply. Last Friday’s storm Sendong wrought extensive damage to Cepalco’s transmission and distribution system. In a statement, Cepalco said the line troubles were caused by vegetation hazards such as falling tree branches, uprooted trees as well as

falling billboards due to the heavy rains and [very] strong winds. Cepalco’s service and line crews worked round-theclock since Friday evening to repair damaged transmission and distribution lines, it said. At 10 a.m. of Saturday (December 17), one substation feeder was re-energized and power supply to some barangays in the western side of Cagayan de Oro City was restored. Around 5 p.m. of the same day, all Cepalco substations were successfully reenergized, restoring power supply to about 80-percent of its service area.

Some areas though, particularly those severely affected by the flashfloods had to be isolated for further line clearing and line re-construction work, the statement said. Yesterday, Cepalco completed the line clearing and re-construction work in all barangays severely hit by flashfloods. It added: “These isolated areas are ready for energization anytime the city’s Office of the Building Official [OBO] gives the go signal and certifies the safety and readiness of the areas for power restoration.” Representatives from OBO and the Institute of

Integrated Electrical Engineers [IIEE]-CDO Chapter, along with Cepalco engineers started last Monday the site inspections of areas badly hit by the flashfloods to verify if these areas are safe for power restoration.

“So far, OBO has already cleared for energization portions of Iponan, Kauswagan, Carmen, MabiniBurgos and portions of the City Hall area. After OBO’s clearance, the above areas were immediately energized

Did collapse of logjammed dams contribute to C. de Oro floods? THE Department of Science and Technology (DOST) is looking into reports that the collapse of three irrigation dams - reportedly clogged with logs and debris - may have contributed to the deadly flashfloods that struck Cagayan de Oro City at the height of tropical storm “Sendong.” Talk that a dam collapse could have unleashed the deluge on Cagayan de Oro and Iligan City have been making the rounds since early this week. When asked earlier, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said it could not confirm the reports, although Edgardo Ollet, operations chief of the Office of Civil Defense, said it was possible that a “natural dam” caused the flooding. “Posible na nagpatong-

Death From page 1 to the corpses we will ignore the evacuation centers.” He added: “If there is any epidemic or threat to health, it will come from the evacuation centers.” In recent days, local authorities in the hard-hit port cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan have struggled to deal with the hundreds of dead, decomposing bodies and their overpowering stench. Iligan began on Tuesday mass burials of identified victims, while Cagayan de Oro is preparing a swimming pool-size communal tomb at the local cemetery. Officials of the two cities told AFP the evacuation centers -- mainly schools and gymnasiums -- have escaped epidemics so far, though conditions remain chaotic due the shortage of skilled relief workers to run them. Levy Villarin, health of-

ficer of Iligan, said the city’s tap water distribution facilities had been shut down to prevent possible contamination by floodwaters and fire trucks have to deliver water to 16 evacuation camps. “The problem is we only have one or two toilets per school, and they have to cater to 3,000 or 4,000 users,” he said. “In order to avoid epidemics we need clean water and portalets (portable toilets),” Villarin added. Cagayan de Oro Councilor Dante Pajo, who is in charge of health matters, agreed there was not enough food or water for the more than 26,000 evacuees there. “The affected areas still don’t have water or electrical services. We have to bring water to them with fire trucks,” he said. At a Cagayan de Oro gymnasium, 52-year-old grandmother Adela Campaner lined up for porridge midmorning for her and her

On December 22, the governor together with her staff, PCL-Missamis Occidental chapter, mayors from 14 towns, and three cities will be coming to Iligan and Cagayan de Oro cities to deliver and conduct relief operations for the victims of Sendong. After the Sangguniang Panlalawigan presided over by Vice Governor Henry Oaminal passed a joint resolution of authority to use the QRF from the five-percent calamity funds of the province, authorized the governor to release P500,000 for the victims of Iligan City and another P500,000 for the victims of Cagayan de Oro City. “We were saddened and surely we will give our empathy to the families’ victims of the most devastating typhoon that ever happens in our country, we in the SP of Misamis Occidental amidst our minor damages because of the typhoon as we join hands to send our condolences to those who had left their families and to give

our heartfelt assistance to the living victims, added to this, we also passed a resolution to the effect that if we have our savings in the Sangguniang Panlalawigan we will share this to our brother Misamisnons who are now living in the two cities and affected by the wrath of Sendong,” Oaminal lamented. Meanwhile, Ramiro, who convened her division chiefs yesterday, decided to cancel all Christmas parties in each offices and instead, share their would-be expenses to the victims. “Yes we have decided to cancel all Christmas parties of every department, and we will share our blessings to the victims,” she said. In related development, the Philippine Councilors League-Misoc provincial chapter led by Board Member Elsa Navarro said that all SBs and SPs from 17 towns and cities will share P200 from their own pockets to help the typhoon victims.

ONB opens branch in Sultan Kudarat INAUGURATES RENOVATED BRANCHES IN COMVAL, CARAGA

THE municipality of Esperanza in Sultan Kudarat warmly welcomed One Network Bank’s newest branch, the sole bank serving the locale. The 83rd addition to the widest banking network in Mindanao is ONB’s response to the municipality’s yearning for the ONB brand of rural banking. The branch inauguration in December 8, 2011 was a meaningful town affair as local residents, businessmen and government officials flocked to the branch. Spearheading the ribbon cutting ceremony was Esperanza Municipal Mayor Helen T. Latog, assisted by ONB’s valued clients Ms. Annabelle Midtimbang and Dr. Pedro Aquino. The blessing rite was officiated by the Most Reverend Antonio P. Pueyo of the Archdiocese of Cotabato. In her speech, Mayor

Latog expressed her earnest gratitude to ONB for its determination to render Esperanza the unparalleled service that has benefitted majority of countryside Mindanao as this was, in her words, “a sign of progress of the municipality”. Just a stone’s throw away from the municipal hall, Esperanza Branch guarantees hassle-free banking transactions with its wide parking area and spacious interior. Now, Esperanza joins the growing number of municipalities in Mindanao to enjoy in the modern and convenient banking experience that ONB offers. True to its commitment of providing the latest bank-

ing innovations to the rural communities of Mindanao and in support of its aggressive branch expansion, ONB also inaugurated its bigger and more accessible branches in Monkayo, Compostela Valley and in Surigao City and Cabadbaran City, Caraga Region last December 3, 2011. In their speeches Mayor Ernesto T. Matugas of Surigao City and Mayor Dale B. Corvera of Cabadbaran City collectively highlighted the new ONB edifices as major indicators of improvement in the areas they govern. Together with the attendees of the branch inaugurations, the mayors are hopeful that their provinces would also benefit from the banking services long enjoyed by other countryside clients of the widest and fastest growing rural bank in Mindanao. Today, ONB operates with a total number of 81 branches and 107 PeraAgad ATMs all over Mindanao. It remains to be the widest rural banking network in the Philippines and the most modern provider of banking services to the unserved or underserved communities in the country. Ara Largo

Nganong karon lang Why do bad things happen to good people? HUMAN sa ngilngig nga kamatayon sa liboan ka mga biktima sa bagyong Sendong, ang administrasyon ni Presidente Benigno Aquino III naghuna-huna karong nga hatagan og permanent relocation kadtong mga residente nga nagpuyo diha sa gitawag og “disasterprone sites.” Nindot ang maong plano ug dugay na kana nga ideya nga ibalhin gayud ang mga lumulupyo nga anaa sa mga “disaster-prone.” Ang problema usahay kay bihan og nakita na sa mga lokal opisyal nga makuyaw ang mga lugar diin nagbalay ang katawhan, padayon nga buta sila. Mora og wala silay nakita nga problema. Karon nga nahitabo na ang trahedya diin liboan ang nangamatay mibalik na usab ang maong sugyot nga ibalhin ang mga lumulupyo nga anaa sa mga delikado nga lugar. Pangutana. Nganong karon ra man? Kung tino-oray ang maong plano, angayan tingali nga sugdan dayon kini ug dili na iagi sa pag-estorya.

EDITORIAL

THINK a minute. Why do bad things happen to good people? Why does that kind, honest person who does the right thing get fired from his job? And why does that evil crook become rich and get away with lying and cheating? Maybe you’ve asked yourself: “If God is so good, then why doesn’t He do something?” We feel like the little girl who wanted a big new bicycle. But her father told her no because she had to wait until she was bigger. The girl got angry and said, “Then I want a new Daddy!” Sometimes when we don’t agree with God we act like that little girl who can’t trust her father, even though He knows much more than her.

Ibalhin dayon kadtong mga katawhan nga anaa nagpuyo sa mga kuyaw nga lugar. Dali ra sila makit-an kay halos anaa sila nagtapok sa mga daplin sa suba, mga dagkong creek, ug kadagatan. Maayo sab tingali nga ayohon sa gobyerno, pinaagi sa Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), ang tanang drainage system. Angayan usab nga lantawon sa gobyerno ang mga gihimong “dam” o “water reservoir.” Angay tan-awon kung asa o hain mopaingon ang ilang tubig kung sila mag-release sa ilang mga pundong tubig. Kung gilihuk kini nga mga plano niadtong una pa, wala unta mahitabo kining trahedya karon. Apan kanunay gayud ulahi ang pagbasol.

Think A Minute

Jhan Tiafau Hurst He understands that she’s not ready for a big bicycle. But she just thinks her father’s not fair or doesn’t really love her. Our problem sometimes is that we’re looking for the wrong answer. We don’t believe what God is doing is for our happiness, or that He’s even isn’t listening to us. But He is. In fact, He’s answering

needs in your life you don’t even know about! As one wise person prayed: “God, don’t punish me by giving me everything I ask for.” You see, many times we simply don’t know what will make us happy for the rest of our lives. We just want to be comfortable and happy for the moment right now. But God is trying to help us and make sure we are happy forever. So He’s trying to fix the bigger problem of our heart and relationship with Him our Maker. Does that mean Jesus doesn’t care about our suffering now? No, it’s just the opposite. Jesus cares very much! He knows exactly what it feels like to be hurt and suffer unfairly for something you didn’t do. When G o d t he S on

Himself, Who was completely inno cent, to ok all the pain and penalty for our wrongs and sins, He cried out to God the Father: “Why have you left me?” Even Jesus Himself, after He became a human being, did not get the answer He wanted right away. Was it fair? No. But it was God’s mercy and love for us and our only hope, since God the Son’s death was the only way He could forgive you and me to give us a new life. So why not put your life in the hands of your Maker Who loves you that much? Decide today to start living for Him His way, knowing that everything He does in your life is for your permanent happiness and success. Just Think a Minute.

Mindanao typhoon-free? Advocacy Mindanao

Jess Dureza Our lucky cousins saved themselves, 10 of them including small children by climbing a big mango tree that was just outside the window. The house was shattered and they clung for dear lives on the branches until they were rescued. I am sure countless horror stories will start filtering out when the smoke clears. *** SAD CHRISTMAS -With the many dead and homeless , perhaps we can spare a little bit of our blessings this christmas season for those suffering victims. The city government under Mayor Sara Duterte Carpio is generating support. Also the DSWD. Or other kind souls. *** ZAMB OANGA DEL SUR -- I got word that the provincial government of Zamboanga del Sur, under

Gov. Tony Cerilles, overturned a proposed ordinance by its Municipality of Bayog thereby throwing out an anti open pit mining ban initiated by the local town.. Gov Tony served as DENR secretary for sometime during President Estrada’s administration. He holds the view that the provincial government has no business banning open pit mining when it is allowed by the Mining Act, a national law. He knows whereof he speaks. *** BISHOPS AGAINST -The 3 bishops of the cities of Kidapawan , Koronadal, and Digos yesterday issued a statement opposing the Tampakan copper and gold project and they laid down the specifics of their opposition. This is good because it gives now an opportunity for XTRATA and Indophil owners of SMI, Inc. to explain their side and clear up the apprehension of the public if they can. What is important too is for the good bishops to also give the mining company a chance to give its side and explain those points that the bishops consider as important to protect their flock and the future. I personally know Bishops Afable, Gutierrez and de la Cruz. They will listen.

I hope they have an open mind, notwithstanding the Church’s institutional antimining posture. *** VOICE OF LUMADS? -- In my scan of the mining issues in Mindanao, I have however noticed that the lumads or the indigenous peoples of the mining areas, including the host local government units, are drowned out by anti-mining elements who are not from the area. The biggest joke is that many so-called advocates preach and proclaim that the IPs or lumads must decide or determine for themselves but in reality, the noisy and more vociferous protesters supplant the locals with their own positions. For example, in Tampakan, South Cotabato, the lumads there are very supportive, I was told. But IPs from other areas and not from Tampakan, orchestrated by other interest groups, bark otherwise. In Siocon, Zamboanga del Norte, the lumads there were even demonstrating in support of mining company TVI. Even the host municipality Siocon, and the other surrounding towns were rising up to denounce the open pit mining ban approved by the province. So, what self-determination are we talking about?

When disasters strike WE have to be ready spiritually and morally, and not just materially, socially, politically, etc., when disasters and calamities strike. In the end, this is really what matters. This state of preparedness should not be reduced to lower levels, overtaken by other considerations that, while they may be more immediate, are not the ultimate and decisive

factors. At the moment, I can discern an unspoken lament over God’s role in these sad events. Why did God allow Typhoon Sendong to happen? Why did he let so many people, even innocent children, to die in such a manner? Why does he want us to suffer? We have to be ready for the right answers to these questions that understand-

ably would spring in anyone’s mind and heart. And for this, let’s not rely on our reasoning alone, but rather on our faith always. Faith gives us a glimpse of the mind of God with respect to our human affairs and world events. And what can we gather Fr. Roy Cimagala from our faith? What we can safely say is that God allows world has its inherent finite these disasters to happen, and limited character. And first, because our natural STRIKE/p.7

For Temple Hills woman, tragedy in Philippines strikes close to heart By TARA BAHRAMPOUR, The Washington Post

F

E Chisley left her family in the Philippines 12 years ago to move to the United States, but from how much she talked and laughed with her sisters each day, you would have thought they lived next door.

She knew all the details of their lives, including the meal her younger sister Naomi, “the chef of the family,” had planned for their mother’s 88th birthday. They talked Thursday night as Naomi and another sister, Sarah, prepared spring rolls for the party the next day. But the following evening, when Chisley called to wish her mother a happy birthday, no one picked up the phone. Calls to her sisters’ cellphones, which they always kept close by, also went unanswered. After frantic calls to other family members, Chisley, 48, heard the news she still cannot believe: Naomi, 46, and Sarah, 50, had drowned early Saturday morning after a flash flood inundated their mother’s home in the southern Philippine town of Balulang, near the city of Cagayan de Oro. More than 900 others also died.

The sisters died while saving their mother on her birthday. “Today, they were laughing; the next day, they were gone,” said Chisley’s husband, Vernon. Chisley sat on the couch beside him in their Temple Hills home, her eyes puffy from crying, her small hands clutching his large fingers. “They are just super, super sweet,” she said, clicking over a computer screen filled with snapshots of her smiling sisters. Sobbing, she added, “I keep calling their names.” Across the Washington region, home to about 200,000 Filipinos, churches and community groups have begun collecting money to help the tens of thousands who were displaced by the flooding and are in need of drinking water, blankets, clothes and food. Local Filipinos have

Feed the Hungry, a D.C.based Filipino organization, has sent $10,000, she said.

“Filipinos are very extended families, so a lot of them are coming from that province, and they are aggressively pushing for fundraising,” Branigin said. Local Catholic churches, where many of the families worship, are collecting money at the midnight Masses scheduled around Christmas, she said. Across the United States, Filipino Americans “are breaking into their piggy banks right now,” said Napoleon Curameng, regional director of the ANCOP Foundation USA. Those donations, many in the amounts of $20, $50 or $100, have totaled more than $6,000. Chisley’s family members, who live near mountains, were used to minor floods during storms. When a typhoon started Friday night, they were not worried. When a third sister, who had left the house to visit another relative, sent a text message to check on (Family Photo) - Sarah Benegildo, left, and Naomi Felicilda, right, sit with their them, they said they were watching TV and were fine. mother, Herminia Felicilda, in 2010.

Strike From page 6 God deals with the world as with us always respecting the nature the world and we have. Sooner or later, our world and everything in it will meet their end. They will pass away. As an old Nat King Cole song would have it, “The Rockies may crumble, Gibraltar may tumble, they are only made of clay, but our love is here to stay.” That romant ic line echoes what our Lord said: “Heaven and earth shall

pass, but my words shall not pass.” (Mt 24,35) It’s a clear indication that in our earthly affairs, we have to be guided by God’s word, by the faith God revealed and gave to us, more than just our gut feel, or our sciences, arts and technologies. We can then say that disasters and calamities are occasions, reasons and invitations for us to grow in our faith, to go beyond what our senses can perceive and intelligence can understand. We need faith! Thus, in the episode of our Lord with the apostles on a boat tossed by big waves

of a storm, he reprimanded the apostles for their lack of faith when they in fear roused him from sleep to do something about the water threatening to sink them. “Why are you fearful: Have you no faith yet?” he told them. (Mk 4,40) It’s not that we should not bother our Lord because of our faith. We can and in fact should bother him when we are threatened by disasters or are already suffering in them. It’s just that we have to bother him out of faith, and not out of mere fear. With faith, our Lord can always calm down

the raging seas of our life. We have to strengthen our faith always. We have to see to it that our thinking, judging and reasoning are always infused by faith. We should never allow them to be inspired only by what we see, hear and feel, or even by what we understand. We have to go by our faith always. Our earthly condition is made worse by the mistakes and sins we commit. So, not only do we have to contend with the natural limitations and weaknesses, but also with the infranatural factors of these sins and mistakes.

An hour later, the street outside their house had become a river, and the water had risen to their mattresses. Sarah and Naomi upended a bed and hoisted their mother on top. They stood on either side to keep the bed from tipping over and told their mother not to be scared because they were there. But the water kept rising. “The last words Naomi said were, ‘Sarah, I cannot breathe anymore,’ ” Chisley said, recounting her mother’s account of the ordeal. Shortly after, Sarah, too, fell silent. When the water receded a few hours later, their mother found their bodies, covered in mud, on the floor.

For Chisley, who had not visited her family in seven years, the tragedy comes after health problems, including ovarian and uterine cancer, had kept her from traveling. She helped provide for her family and was planning a visit next year. She had already filled a bag with gifts for her sisters. Instead, thanks to a ticket donated by a friend, a retired airline employee, she will leave Wednesday on a 21-hour journey to help bury them. She is grateful for the gift but wishes she were already there to comfort her mother. “If only I had wings like a dove,” she said, “I would fly right away.”

That is why, our Lord taught us how not only to have faith, but also to be ready to carry the cross with him. The cross is a necessary element of our faith. It signifies, among other things, the inevitable suffering we have to undergo in this life because of these natural and infranatural factors of our wounded human nature. Knowing how to carry the cross with Christ enables us to face whatever disaster we can meet in life. Our cross then becomes the cross of Christ, a suffering that will lead us to our own

resurrection, to our victory over sin, to our own perfection as children of God. The cross of Christ, converts our suffering into something redemptive and perfective of us, and not just painful events of our lives. We have to assimilate this truth of our faith well. For this, our Lord wants us to be ready always. “Know this, that if the good man of the house knew at what hour the thief would come, he would certainly watch... be you also ready, because at what hour you know not the Son of man will come.” (Mt 24,43-44)

DEAR Kuya Sonny, maayong morning kanimo. Ang akong problema mao ang kabahin sa akong magulang nga lalaki kinsa buot mangulitawo sa akong girlfriend tungod kay naka-crush siya niini. Type daw niya kaayo ang akong uyab ug nagbahad siya kanako

Maayong morning usab kanimo Mr. 529. Kini nga matang sa problema nga dako kaayog gusto ang imong magulang ngadto sa imong uyab, imo gayud ayohon sa pagpasabot nga tabangan nimo siya sa pagpangita og laing babaye para kaniya. Imo usab kini ibutyag sa imong mga ginikanan aron sila ang modugang sa pagpasabot kalabot niini ngadto sa imong igsuon. Salamat.

AQUARIUS (Enero 20-Pebrero 18) Ang gugma adunay lawom og epekto ug mabati mo kini ngadto sa tawo nga espesyal sa imong kinabuhi. PISCES (Pebrero 19-Marso 20) Ayaw og huna-hunaa nga makabisi kanimo og samot ang pagabot sa kapaskohan, ibutang sa imong isip nga molambo ang trabaho o ang negosyo. ARIES (Marso 21-Abril 19) Gikatakda na sa bisan asa ang pagselebrar sa mga party nga adunay kalambigitan sa trabaho apan pagbantay sa paggasto sa imong sapi kay basin ayha ra ka makamatikod niini kung buslot na imong bulsa. TAURUS (Abril 20-Mayo 20) Daghan na ka og nahuman nga trabaho maong karong semanaha aduna kay taas nga panahon aron sa pagrelax ug paglingaw-lingaw kauban ang pamilya. GEMINI (Mayo 21-Hunyo 20) Mingaw para kanimo kung gugma ang pagahisgutan sa karon apan kung adunay oportunidad dawata kini, ilabina kung mahitungod sa trabaho. CANCER (Hunyo 21-Hulyo 22) Kung ikaw anaa sa tunga-tunga sa mga aktibidadis, mamahimong dili kana makahimo sa pagtan-aw sa imong naabot, baliki og handum ang imong kagahapon.

Unsay buot ipasabot niana Kuya Sonny. Frm: 219 KAHULOGAN: Nagpasabot nga malampuson ka sa imong love ug business affairs. 000 DAMGO:Nagdamgo ko og mga unggoy nga nagsaka-saka sa among balay. Unsay meaning niana Kuya Sonny. Thanks. Frm:218 KAHULOGAN: Adunay tawo kinsa magtalo-talo sa imong pagkatawo aron makuha ang iyang gusto gikan kanimo.

TILIMAD-ON:Tinuod ba Kuya Sonny kung ang tawo magdamgo nga nanga-ibot ang iyang ngipon, balihon ang unlan samtang natulog kini aron daw masumpa ang buot ipasabot niana kay ang mensahi daw sa maong damgo mao adunay mamatay nga membro sa ilang kaliwatan. Pasabta ako niini. Frm: 317 KATIN-AWAN: (Una sa tanan atung ipasabot sa mga readers nga kining maong gipadangat kanako dili kini damgo apan katin-awan sa sitwasyon kung anaa bay tilimad-on niini). Walay kamatuoran kana nga balihon nimo ang unlan. Tungod kay ang imong pagtuo sa kahulogan sa ngipon nga nanga-ibot, dili man adunay mamatay. Apan ang tukmang meaning niana mao ang “kapakyasan sa imong giplano ug gitinguha”. Sa sunod kung magdamgo ka niana, ayaw na pagbaliha pa ang imong unlan kay dili kana motugo. Maayo man og hotcake kay kung dili kini nimo balihon mamahimong hilaw ang pikas niini.

Bea Binene, the next Mel Tiangco? IDOL daw ng Kapuso tween star na si Bea Binene ang Queen of Public Service ng GMA Network na si Mel Tiangco kaya naman sa kabila ng kanyang murang edad ay nagtayo na rin ng sariling foundation ang young star. Sa Showbiz Exclusive ng GMA News TV nitong Martes, ipinakita ang launching ng Bea Binene Cares Foundation kung saan mga batang mahihirap ang nais tulungan ng tween star. “Gusto ko rin pong maging Tita Mel someday, so

ang tinatawag po nila sa akin ay prinsesa ng serbisyong totoo,” pahayag ng 14-anyos na si Bea. Noon pa man daw ay sumusuporta na si Bea sa ibang samahan gaya ng Kapuso at Haribon foundations. Si Tita Mel – anchor din ng GMA primetime newsc 24 Oras – ang nasa likod ng GMA Kapuso Foundation na abala sa pagkakaloob ng tulong at serbisyo sa mga nangangailangan nating mga kababayan. Ayon kay Bea, malak-

ing karangalan para sa kanya na may mga taong nagpapalagay na siya ang magiging susunod na Mel Tiangco. “I’m very honored ang very thankful kasi iba yung feeling na parang na maging katulad ka, para maging younger version ka ni Ms Mel Tiangco . So I am very happy ang sarap ng feeling,” dagdag ng young star. Aabot sa 500 mahihirap na kabataan ang matutulungan sa foundation ni Bea. Nais ng batang aktres na makipag-tulungan ang kan-

yang foundation sa ibang samahan gaya sa Kapuso upang makapagbigay din sila ng serbisyo. “Gusto po naming parang magtie-up, magiging volunteer group po kami sa ibang foundation gaya ng Kapuso. Kapag may mga project pupunta kami dun,” paliwanag niya. Samantala, aminado naman si Bea na hindi magiging kompleto ang Pasko niya ngayong taon. Ito’y dahil hindi niya makakasama ang kanyang ama bunga ng paghihiwalay ng

kanyang mga magulang. Pero sakabila ng nangyari, iniisip ni Bea na kahit may mga pagsubok na dumaan sa kanyang buhay

ay mas marami naman ang nakamit niyang biyaya ngayong taon na dapat niyang ipagpasalamat. FRJimenez, GMA News

Submit to Mayweather Jr’s blood-testing By GRANVILLE AMPONG, Examiner.com

LET us lay down relevant circumstantial values before we delve into the final point of random blood-testing. It’s given: Pound-for-Pound King Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has the upper-hand.

Immediately status-post fight of Pacquiao-Marquez trilogy, WBO Welterweight Champion Manny Pacquiao took a downward slope at + 220 versus towering climb by Mayweather, Jr. to -300, which meant betting $100 for Mayweather would only win $ 33.33 and betting $100 for Pacquiao would win $220. And today, as of this writing, Pacquiao suffers with an all-time low at +350 versus inversely deepening high at -500. If the fight were held today and a bet of $ 100 for Mayweather, Jr. and granting he wins, one would win only $ 20. And with the same proposition, a bet of $ 100 for Pacquiao and granting he wins, one would win $ 350. All these are based on standard deviation and other constructive variable computation of probabilities. And this betting perspective surely tells the boxing public who really deserves the higher share between these two competing top fighters.

TRIVIA Facts about the nature

Balsamic Roast Pork Tenderloins

Videoke Never Walk Away Lyrics by: Arnel Pineda So young in love they couldn’t wait Said their vows just to run away Suddenly, they felt their lives had changed

Most scientists agree that Great White Shark attacks on humans often stem from territorial aggression because of a perceived invasion of their space, and are usually non-predatory in nature. ---The female flea can lay 2,000 eggs in her lifetime; if all 53 million dogs in the U.S. each hosted a population of 60 fleas, we’d have more than six trillion flea eggs surrounding our pets. Laid end-to-end, those eggs would stretch around the world more than 76 times! ---Left to their own devices pearls grow naturally only once in every 20,000 oysters. ---The egg-laying organs of female parasitic ichneumon wasps are lined with ionized manganese or zinc.

Ingredients 4 1/2 pounds pork tenderloins, 2 packages with 2 tenderloins in each package 4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 8 cloves garlic, cracked Steak seasoning blend or coarse salt and black pepper 4 sprigs fresh rosemary leaves stripped and finely chopped 4 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves stripped and finely chopped Directions • Preheat oven to 500 degrees F. • Trim silver skin or connective tissue off tenderloins with a very sharp thin knife. • Place tender loins on a nonstick cookie sheet with a rim. Coat tenderloins in a few tablespoons of balsamic vinegar, rubbing vinegar into meat. Drizzle tenderloins with extra-virgin olive oil, just enough to coat. Cut small slits into meat and disperse chunks of cracked garlic cloves into meat. Combine steak seasoning blend or coarse salt and pepper with rosemary and thyme and rub meat with blend. Roast in hot oven 20 minutes. • Let meat rest, transfer to a carving board, slice and serve.

They believed their hearts were strong Just to find they couldn’t get along They didn’t care it slowly (falls or comes) undone (Chorus) Will she go or will she stay (will she stay) Pull herself (through or for) one more day Don’t give up Never Walk Away Love’s a promise that he made In his heart it still remains Don’t give up Never Walk away Had to meet somewhere half way Heart to heart Face to face Compromise the price they had to pay Cared enough to stand on ground Screamed and shouted ’til the walls came down Won the fight Still a brand new day (Chorus) Repeat 2x Will she go or will she stay (will she stay) Pull herself (through or for) one more day Don’t give up Never Walk Away Love’s a promise that he made In his heart it still remains Don’t give up Never Walk Away Never Walk Away Oh, Oh (never walk away) Never Walk Away

Dumping of bodies at dumpsite illegal: P-noy PRESIDENT B enigno Aquino III said government officials who ordered the dumping of bodies of flood victims at the Cagayan de Oro landfill should be held criminally liable. Aquino, who was caught unaware when asked about the dumping of the cadavers at the landfill when he visited Cagayan de Oro on Tuesday, said this was not only illegal but also a health hazard. “Excuse me. I don’t think there is any plan to put … and no authority to put anybody … I don’t know where you got that from and I don’t know where these reports are coming from,” Aquino said when asked for his thoughts during an ambush interview Tuesday afternoon. “That is not authorized by any of our laws … I really don’t know where you got that from, but if anybody ever does that and put these deceased in a landfill, they will have to answer before the law,” he added. “What is required is that they (victims) will all be buried, but not as deeply as normal because there is still (a) need to identify all of these deceased (and) to put a closure to all of the families who have lost their relatives,” Aquino stressed. Mayor Vicente Emano has admitted ordering the bodies taken to the landfill, claiming he had “no choice” after overwhelmed funeral parlor owners began turning cadavers away because they were running out of formalin and were still without water. Emano said the landfill transfer, which has earned him wide criticism, was just a temporary measure and that the bodies would eventually be buried in a huge vault at the Cagayan de Oro City Memorial Park.
