The dilemma facing M’nao’s electric coops By MIKE BAÑOS

NPC Energy Center, Diliman, Quezon City––The Department of Energy has identified overdrawing by member cooperatives of the Association of Mindanao Rural Electric Cooperatives (AMRECO) as the cause for the rotating brownouts now plaguing many areas of Mindanao. Ironically, there’s little the coops can do about it as of the moment. “It’s no surprise that with only 70% of the previous supply available and no comparable replacement capacity available from the grid, the coops are exceeding their allocations. Demand across the Mindanao grid has been growing 4-5% annually, with some coops experiencing as much as 18% increase in demand every

year,” Sergio C. Dagooc, AMRECO president, said during a meeting March 23 with Energy Undersecretary Josefina Patricia M. Asirit at the NPC Energy Center here. “It’s not true that demand in Mindanao has been suppressed as the DOE believes,” added Clint Django coops/PAGE 7

Normin policemen ready for Holy week By RONNIE FRANCIS CARIAGA

CAGAYAN de Oro City–– Police Regional Office (PRO), region 10, has put in place its security and safety preparations as most Catholics celebrate the traditional observance of the holy week starting this 2nd day of April 2012.

Power shortage causes prolonged brownouts By FREDELYN L. RAGANDANG with ELAINE O. RATUNIL of PIA-10

MALAYBALAY City, Bukidnon––The Bukidnon Second Electric Cooperative (BUSECO) was forced to implement the 2.5 hours rotational brownouts because it has a power shortage due to the increased peak demands of the member-consumers. Based on the data presented during the press forum with BUSECO officials, the month of March has a total peak demand of 22 megawatts but the approved contract with the Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management or PSALM is only up to 14 megawatts. Moreover, the total peak demand this April is 19.98 megawatts while it has contracted only 9.90 megawatts. With this, BUSECO said they already signed a 5-megawatt power supply agreement with Aboitiz-owned Therma Marine Inc. (TMI) to somehow address the power shortage. BUSECO, however, said they are still negotiating the approval of the TMI agreement with the Energy Regulatory Board (ERC). Buying power from TMI means charging higher power costs to consumers, which is allowed only upon approval by the ERC. power/PAGE 5

Hedcor promotes fire safety IN partnership with Bureau of Fire and Protection, Hedcor recently conducts annual fire safety drill to its employees to strengthen awareness in emergency and evacuation preparedness.

Hedcor went through a day of intensive training with actual simulation in fire suppression in its offices and at hydropower plants. “In order to sustain this heightened level of awareness, all of us must have this inherent understanding of safety,” Hedcor Safety Officer Engr. Earl James Logarta said. “Also, fire drill is a good venue for employees to actively participate in the government’s thrust to promote fire safety,” Logarta added. Aside from the drill and seminar, Hedcor responds to the call of the fire prevention month through monthly monitoring of the fire extinguishers, cleaning of work areas that might pose threat to fire, and posting of emergency numbers––of nearest fire station, to strategic areas.

FIRE FIGHTING. Bureau of Fire and Protection assists Hedcor during the fire and safety drill at the office and in the hydropower plants. The activity is conducted twice a year to sharpen the awareness and alertness of Hedcor team members. “Better knowledge and appreciation results in vigilance. It allows us to be more cautious and alert,” says Logarta. Last year, the 42.5-MW Sibulan Hydropower Plant

in Sta. Cruz, Davao del Sur installed a P15 million worth of fire prevention equipment to detect smoke and allow plant operators to contain the flames even before it spread.

PRESIDENT BENIGNO S. AQUINO III this week has ordered the Philippine National Police (PNP) to step up efforts to finally dismantle and eradicate private armed groups in the country. Aquino’s order covers not only known lairs of private armies in some provinces but throughout the country. “I have tasked the PNP, specifically, for the continuing efforts to remove “Not only ARMM (Auall of these private armies tonomous Region in Muslim wherever they exist,” the Mindanao). We’re going President said. around the entire country,”

he added. Last year, Aquino already created a task force task to dismantle private armed groups anywhere in the Philippines. Aquino issued the latest order to make sure that these private armed groups are finally neutralized. He said he had a meeting with his Cabinet and law enforcement agencies to assess and revalidate their information on private armed groups and how to eradicate them. CD with wire report

ARAKAN, North Cotabato – Cops seized five high-powered firearms from a village chair in a remote village here Wednesday. Found in the possession of the suspect identified as Maximo dela Cerna, 50, barangay chair of Katipunan, were two shotguns with two magazines; a caliber 22; a caliber 45 pistol with seven bullets inside; and a Magnum 22 or ‘Senorita-type’ pistol.

Armed with search warrants issued by Judge Rogelio Naresma of the Regional Trial Court branch 23 here, police in North Cotabato raided Braga’s house and store, around 5:45 a.m. Wednesday. Lacostales said they confiscated from Braga’s eatery three long firearms, and from his house, two handguns and ammunition.

Raid in Punong barangay house yields five firearms Chief Insp. Edwin Lacostales, deputy chief of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Team (CIDT)-North Cotabato, said they raided Braga’s house after a tip from a concerned citizen. The same tipster later executed an affidavit, which was made as basis of two search warrants the court in Kidapawan City issued on Tuesday.

Sibulan Hydropower Project, owned by AboitizPower subsidiar y Hedcor Sibulan, Inc., delivers about 212 GWh of energy every year to Davao Light and Power Company.

Hedcor has 19 run-ofriver hydropower plants in Benguet, Ilocos Sur and Davao with a total capacity of 154 MW. The company was conferred by the Department

of Labor and Employment as one of the safest companies in the country through vesting the Safety Milestone and Gawad Kaligtasan at Kalusugan awards last year.

Food aid to North Korea stop

THE UNITED STATES has suspended its planned nutritional food aid to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) over the latter’s insistence on satellite launch, a Pentagon official said on Wednesday. “We have been forced to suspend our activities to provide nutritional assistance to North Korea,” said Peter Lavoy, acting assistant secretary of defense for Asian and Pacific security affairs. The United States believes that the DPRK’s announcement of a satellite launch “reflects their lack of desire to follow through on their international commitments,” Lavoy told a House Committee on Armed Services hearing on Korean Peninsula security. “Our suspicions about North Korea using its celebrations this year to enhance its missile program were confirmed when North Korea announced on March 16 that it plans to conduct a missile launch between April 12 and 16,” he claimed, calling the planned launch “highly provocative” as it “manifests North Korea’s desire to test and

expand its long-range missile capability.” “In addition, the launch, if it occurs, would be in direct violation of Pyongyang’s international obligations, including UN Security Council resolutions 1718 and 1874, which prohibit North Korea from conducting any launches that use ballistic missile technology,” he said. The Pentagon official expressed regret at the suspension of the food aid, saying: “Why we’re not providing that food assistance at this point is because our confidence in their ability to meet their agreements has been diminished. We do not use it as a lever to change their policies.” Under an agreement reached in late February, the DPRK agreed to suspend its uranium enrichment, nuclear and long-range missile tests and to allow UN inspectors to return to the country. In return, the United States agreed to provide the DPRK with 240,000 tons of nutritional assistance. The two sides met early this month in Beijing over the administrative details of the program.

Tesda-Surigao Sur ranks first among Philhealth revokes of erring 5 provincial offices in Caraga region accreditation medical clinic in Misoc By GENEVIEVE G. CANTOR, Surigao del Sur News Bureau

CAGAYAN de Oro City––The PhilHealth Regional Office in Region 10 has revoked the accreditation of a medical clinic in Misamis Occidental for fraudulently filing claims for non-admitted patients and other misrepresentations. PhilHealth Regional Vice President for Northern Mindanao Datu Masiding M. Alonto Jr. said Bonifacio Medical Clinic located at Purok 4, Poblacion, Bonifacio town was found guilty for misrepresentation by furnishing false and incorrect information and can no longer process claim reimbursements of PhilHealth members effective March 16, 2012. Alonto said the order came after a thorough investigation conducted by PhilHealth Regional Office 10 – Legal Office and that the revocation of BMC’s accreditation is permanent effective March 16, 2012. PhilHealth has already filed a number of cases against the clinic for various irregularities since the approval of its accreditation in 1998. Twenty-nine (29) of which were later found to be fraudulent claims for “non-admitted” patients. The cases were filed after PhilHealth 10 – Legal Office has found irregularities on the legitimacy of the patient’s confinement, since a trend of family confinement and mandatory admission of 3 days were detected, Alonto said. Alonto said these acts are tantamount to grave breach of the warranties of accreditation, which is punishable by revocation of the clinic’s status as an accredited PhilHealth provider. In its decision dated November 14, 2011, the Arbitration Office found BMC violating Section 141 or Claims for non-admitted Patients of Rule XXVIII of the Implementing Rules and Regulations of the National Health Insurance Act of R.A. 7875 as amended by R.A. 9241. “BMC undermines the goal of PhilHealth to provide secured hospitalization for its members,” Alonto added. As of this writing, Atty. Allan G. Panolong, Head of the Legal Office of PhilHealth 10 received decisions for BMC for 12 counts of revocation, six orders of suspension and aggregate fine of P710,000.

THE Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) is strengthening its networking and partnering initiatives to indentify unexploited opportunities in an effort to serve the needs and deserving grassroots communities in the province of Surigao del Sur. Tesda-Surigao del Sur has reached new frontiers in empowering Surigaonons through technical-vocational education and training. Some of the highlights of Tesda’s major programs in two districts of Surigao del Sur––such as person profiled under YP4SC––were benefitted by at least 1,344 persons, 811 granted with scholarships, 7,515 persons trained in various skills/ qualifications, 5,361 persons assessed, 4,812 persons certified and issued with NC, 877 wage employed, and 1,021 were self-employed.

To ensure that it is effectively remodelled, Cueva himself designed the new courses for the people of Surigao del Sur. During the mass graduation of Tesda’s project Kasanayan para sa Kapaypaan at Kaunlaran held at Barangay Anahao Daan Gymnasium in Tago, Surigao del Sur, he said: “After many years that Tesda is offering courses that are in line with IT courses and others, students find it difficult to apply what they have learned after graduation.” Cueva admitted that most of the training programs that the Tesda offered are not one-hundred percent used by the students. “Competency assessment and certification system is a major in Tesda’s authority role,” he said. He added Tesda ensures that Technical-Vocational

The sweat of success THINK a minute. Former Prime Minister of England, Winston Churchill, became so famous for his speeches that he’s been called the greatest speaker of the century. He was also famous for his quick wit. Yet amazingly, he was not a naturally talented speaker. In fact, earlier in Churchill’s life he had such a bad speech problem that people made fun of the way he talked. D o you k n ow h ow Churchill changed to become the greatest speaker of the 20th century? He studied and wrote his speeches word-for-word on paper, and then he practiced them countless hours in front of a mirror. He worked at saying

Think A Minute Jhan Tiafau Hurst each word just the right way with just the right facial expressions. He also practiced pausing and pretending to struggle to find the right word, even though he knew exactly what he was going to say! So although Winston Churchill was not a naturally good speaker, he disciplined himself and worked hard to become a great one! You and I can never

succeed in life without discipline and hard work. It takes sweat to succeed in our job and career, in school, in sports, in our marriage and family. Even if you’re born into a rich family, or with an intelligent mind and strong body, you still have to work hard to reach your full potential and truly succeed. Most importantly, it takes work and discipline to develop the character

we were born to have and enjoy. We must discipline and change our wrong attitudes, thinking, and way of living everyday. It’s not natural or easy for us to quickly forgive someone who hurts us or our family. It’s not natural or easy to always be honest no matter how much we can get away with or how much it costs us. But you can start by asking Jesus Christ to forgive you for living your own way; and then ask Him to take full charge of your heart and character. It’s only with Jesus’ character and power in you that you can start changing to become the best person you can be. Just Think a Minute.

Mining and mercury poisoning WE APPRECIATE the province of Misamis Oriental’s no ‘non-sense’ drive against illegal mining. It takes a political will to run after illegal miners. More so, there is more at stake when top officials are directly or indirectly involved in mining activities. However, local government units can do whatever it takes to put a stop to activities considered environmentally destructive. The province Cris Diaz of Misamis Oriental did just what is takes. After all, Mining, either legal or illegal contributes in the destruction of the environment in various levels. One of the most dreaded environmental destructions is mercury poisoning. Although Hhydraulic mining obliterates and level off mountains causing heavy siltation on riverbeds and turns clear waters to murky and grubby, mercury poisoning is lethal. There are many natural sources of mercury. Don’t look now, even the fish (commercial or not) may contain mercury. In other words, some foods for human consumptions have natural mercury content. How deadly the mercury contents of these foods are depends on its contents. While mercury is naturally present in air, water, rocks and soil, it subsists in various forms. These forms are elemental or metallic mercury, inorganic mercury compounds and organic mercury compounds. Since mercury is an element in Earth’s crust, humans cannot create or destroy it. ‘Pure mercury is a liquid metal, sometimes referred to as quicksilver that volatizes readily. It has traditionally been used to make products

like thermometers, switches, and some light bulbs.’ In manual mining, miners employ liquid mercury with mineral ores as amalgams of gold ore. When placed under a high temperature, the mercury evaporates thus, leaving pure gold ore in the process. Inhaling large doses of mercury may cause various symptoms. However, ‘the effects that are most toxic occur in the brain and nervous system of humans and animals.’ While there are other means of exposure to mercury poisoning such as eating contaminated foods like shellfish, the new energy-saving fluorescent light bulb, manual mining using liquid mercury is lethal. The ‘emedicine health’ listed some indications of vaporized mercury or elemental mercury symptoms are mood swings, nervousness and irritability. Other emotional changes are insomnia, headaches, stomach sensations, muscle twitching, tremors, weakness, muscle atrophy, decreased cognitive (memory) function. Organic mercury toxicity (most frequently in the methyl mercury form from ingestion), causes neurological malfunctions, and especially in a fetus, impaired neurological development. The symptoms include peripheral vision impairment, stinging or needle-like sensations in the extremities and mouth, loss of coordination, muscle weakness, and other impairments of speech and hearing. Inorganic mercury toxicity often causes skin rashes and inflammation (dermatitis. If ingested, it can dissolve tissues and the intestinal tissue may absorb some of its amount. Large amounts of ingested inorganic mercury may cause bloody diarrhea. Absorbed mercury can spread to other organ systems resulting in mental changes including mood swings and memory loss or renal damage. Muscle weakness may also occur. react: crisguardian@yahoo.com

Social media and Sendong SOCIAL media has been abuzz with every word and phraseology to criticize what many netizens consider as a small town tyrrant. The barrage of social media campaign for transparent and accountable city governance became feverish when Sendong struck more than a hundred days ago. Social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter have been credited for the Arab Spring successes in the Middle East and North Africa. And it is understandable why many in Cagayan de Oro romanticized the Arab Spring to our small town struggles. But, while true that social media played an important role in the Arab

Fastlanes Bencyrus G. Ellorin Spring, glorifying it for all the movement’s successes is unfair to the people who made it happen, especially those that offered their lives. In a social environment where there is heavy media censorship, the posting in Facebook and Twitter of the photo of the young jobless Tunisian Mohamed Bouazizi who burned himself in protest on Dec. 17, 2010 captured the imagination

of many. It spread like wildfire in iPhones, Blackberries and whatever android gadgets young Arab professionals in Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen, Libya and Syria. Aside from that iconic photo of self-immolation, what were shared in Facebook and Twitter were photos of defiance; of mothers, fathers crying in defiance over the death of their son’s

and daughter’s; of young people killed by state security force’s sniper fire as they march in protest for social change. In our small town, what sprang in social media were harsh words; that after some time, there seemed to be a shortage of modifiers to describe the small town tyrant. There were gross and distasteful posting of photos of bloated human bodies, but these do not depict struggle. It only depicted the impact of a humaninduced disaster. A few braved out of their comfort zones produced 38,000 signatures for a recall drive that has now become moot. Many were calling for SENDONG/p.6

‘It is Finished’

A few days from now, we commemorate the passion of Jesus, which marks the salvation of mankind. One of the last words that Jesus shouted on the cross was “It is finished”. What has he accomplished on His death on the cross of Calvary? The Book of Matthew mentions a shout in 27:50, “ And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit “ and Luke in 23:46, “ Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands, I commit my spirit.” When he had said this, he breathed his last. John tells us that Jesus died with these words on his lips, “It is finished” (John 19:30). These parting words express triumph rather than defeat. Jesus bowed his head and gave up his spirit knowing that the strife was now over and the battle was won. Even on the cross, Jesus knew the joy of victory. What the Father sent him into the world to do has now been accomplished. Christ offered himself without blemish to God and he put away sin by the sacrifice of himself (Hebrews 9:14). We can find no greater proof of God’s love for us than the willing sacrifice of his Son on the cross. In the cross of Christ, we see the triumph of Jesus over his enemies -- sin, Satan, and death. Paul the Apostle exclaimed, “But far be it from me to glory except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Galatians 6:14). God hanging from a cross, the sun made dark and again flaming out; for it was fitting that people should mourn with its saviour. The temple veil stripped out, blood and water flowing from his side: the one as from a man, the other as from what was above man; the earth shaken, the rocks shattered because of the rock; the dead risen to bear witness to the final and universal resurrection of the dead. The happenings at the sepulcher and after the sepulcher, who can fittingly recount them? The cross of Christ is the door to heaven, the key to paradise, the downfall of the devil, the uplifting of mankind, the release from our imprisonment, the prize for our freedom. The Cross of Christ is the safeguard of our faith, the assurance of our hope, and the throne of love. It is also the sign of God’s mercy and the proof of forgiveness. By his cross Jesus has redeemed our sins and atoned for our punishment. The way to peace, joy, and righteousness in the kingdom of God and the way to victory over sin, despair, and death is through the cross of Jesus Christ. Can we willingly follow Jesus in his way of the cross with joy, hope, and confidence? “Lord Jesus Christ, by your death on the cross, you have won pardon for us and freedom from the tyranny of sin and death. May I live in the joy and freedom of your victory over sin and death.”

Is ‘clean air’ a right or privilege? By LARRY WEST, About.com Guide

MANY people figure that one of the fundamental things government is supposed to do is to make sure all citizens have clean air to breathe and clean water to drink. This belief is so deeply ingrained that a lot of people consider access to those lifegiving resources not a basic human right. Yet by combing through records that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency had been keeping under wraps, National Public Radio and the Center for Public Integrity discovered that millions of Americans are

This toxic air pollution drifts daily through hundreds of U.S. communities, leading to serious health issues and creating a public health crisis in cities, towns and rural areas nationwide. But the regulatory agencies may be less to blame for the problem of toxic air than the politicians who approve their budgets. (Photo by Getty Images)

DENR, DILG intensify National Greening Program By elaine o. ratunil

CAGAYAN DE Oro City–– The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR-10), together with the University of the Philippines-Los Baños Project Advisory Group (UPLB-PAG) and the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), conducted here in the city a Barangay-level Conference Workshop on DisasterMitigation through the National Greening Program (NGP), recently. The two-day activity was attended by representatives from 66 barangays of the city and Baungon, Bukidnon that are situated along the Cagayan de Oro City River Basin and Watersheds. DILG Director Nilo P. Castañares said the participants were made to

This is why BUSECO is now seeking the help of Governor Alex Calingasan and asking the Sangguniang Panlalawigan to pass a resolution urging the ERC to approve it soonest. But even if the ERC approves it this month, BUSECO said this won’t stop the power curtailment. BUSECO is continuously pushing its advocacy on energy conservation and energy saving tips to consumers like turning off the

understand how the NGP can help mitigate the effects of disasters even as it provided deeper knowledge about geo-hazards maps and their use, among others.

It can be recalled that President Benigno S. Aquino III has issued Executive Order 26 declaring NGP a government priority program to reduce poverty,

promote food security, environmental stability and biodiversity conservation, and enhance climate change mitigation and adaptation. (eor, PIA-10/jdelpf )

Police units under PRO10, as well as all attached Philippine National Police (PNP) support units in the region, are directed to establish police assistance hubs to assist commuters and motorists, and to tie up their security and safety preparations with their respective local government units, other government agencies and existing volunteer groups. Members of the Region-

al Public Safety Battalion (RPSB) will be utilized to augment the provincial and city police offices upon instruction of the Regional Director. A standby reaction group from this unit will also be maintained for immediate response in case any unforeseen or uncontrollable event may happen. Provincial and city public safety companies will also be utilized to assist the police

stations in the conduct of fixed visibility points and random checkpoints to preempt movement of criminal elements and firearms. The focus of police deployment and security enhancement covers not only in the streets but all public places such as malls, beaches, tourist destinations, airport, seaport and terminals to prevent criminal activities and terrorist threats.

refrigerators from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Meanwhile, a multi-sectoral orientation seminar on energy efficiency and conservation program is slated on Friday, March 30, 1:00 p.m. at the Pilgrim Christian College Auditorium, in Cagayan de Oro City. Jointly undertaken by the Department of Energy (DOE), World Wildlife Fund for Nature Philippines (WWF), and the Philippine Information Agency (PIA), the seminar is part of DOE’s National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Program

(NEECP), which aims to implement the use of energy efficiency and conservation measures to gain access to affordable, cost-efficient, and environment-friendly energy sources. Participants will be oriented on the impact of climate change including the threat of global warming. Topics include DOE’s Energy Efficiency Plans and Programs and household tips on energy conservation. The activity targets 300 participants from the local government units, academe, businesses, non-government

organizations, regional line agencies, and various consumers. The seminar is also in preparation from the WWFspearheaded “Earth Hour,” a global campaign addressing global warming through a simultaneous switching off of lights and other nonessential electric devices set on March 31 at 8:30 p.m. Earth Hour began in Sydney, Australia in 2007. In just three years it has grown to be the largest voluntary mass-action event in human history, uniting over one billion people worldwide.

Reclamation Authority, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Environmental Management Bureau and the City Government of Las Piñas. The petition asks the Supreme Court to stop the respondents from implementing the Parañaque and Las Piñas Cpasta; Bay Project because it will result in the destruction of wildlife habitat in the area and expose the residents of the cities of Las Piñas and Parañaque and the municipality of Bacoor and their properties to great risk of flooding. According to the petition, aside from flooding, the reclamation project

will also wreak havoc on a critical habitat and ecotourism area consisting of over 175,307 hectares of land located in the cities of Las Piñas and Parañaque. This habitat is home to more than 195 species of birds and some of the most endangered species in the world including the Philippine Duck and the Chinese Egret and rare bird species such as the Osprey, the Pied Avocet and the Siberian Rubythroat. It is also a swamp habitat to eight species of mangroves and is the most dense among the surviving mangrove areas along Manila Bay. The proposed reclama-

tion will result in the habitat being cut off, isolated and segregated from Manila Bay. The mangroves found therein would eventually perish due to lack of saltwater, leading to the breakdown of the ecosystem. More than 5,000 birds will lose their home and in all probability, eventually die. Villar said the petition seeks the issuance of an ex-parte Temporary Environmental Protection Order to enjoin the respondents from carrying out the reclamation project pending resolution by the Supreme Court on whether or not the Writ of Kalikasan applied for should issue.

Sendong... from page 4

st re e t a c t i on , l itt l e came. I have not expected street action after Sendong though, for we cannot expect people who are forced to their bare humanity by the floods to immediately rise up and fight for social change. It is human nature to seek first the basic needs and then the comfort for the sufferings and then the struggle to move on. What happened in the Arab Spring was a social volcano erupting after decades of authoritarianism. What happened in our small town was Mother Nature snapping at our community for decades of neglect to the environment and bad governance. The Arabs were forced out of their shell because of their severe thirst for justice. Our small town was deluged by Mother Nature into submission for sins of omission. Maybe, a hundred days hence, people will start to stand up and work for the change we urgently need. Let’s not expect street fights to be the main feature of this struggle. There may be some action to dramatize the urgency of the need for change, but that may not be decisive factor. We still do have a working, albeit cranky democracy. The periodic renewal of the social contract between the sovereign people and their delegated state agents is just around the corner. I have said it before and I will say it again; the struggle for change, for transparent and accountable city governance may have to redound to the vote. Among the things this so called Cagayan de Oro Spring netizens need to realize though is that in a backward democratic system like ours where majority are still poor,

elections are not decided by the middle class. Truth of the matter is that in a backward democratic system, where the mode of election is still patronage, transactional and still has all the trappings of guns, gold and goons, the sector that holds the bulk of votes also are prone to put their votes in the market as bulk commodities. For change to come in the city, even the perception of elitism in the movements now calling for good, accountable and transparent governance is definitely bad. The rantings on Facebook, according to a former colleague in the Crusader publication in Xavier University who is now a successful business executive, should transcend the “kantiyaw” of those XU “bench” and “fishpond” regulars. Talk is cliché. We may have to walk the dirty talk, without necessarily getting dirty ourselves. This movement has to also understand by heart who is the Kagayanon and where are they now if it has to seriously take the small town tyrant by the horn. It doesn’t help for some elitists, who to start with are sporting castellan and manchurian sounding surnames, to even attempt a claim of exclusivity to being called lumads of Cagayan de Oro. For change to come in the city, genuine leadership should now emerge and fill the vacuum. Let’s not forget though that in removing a small town tyrant, we do not replace him with another ‘wannabee’.

‘Run with the Masters 2012’ to honor former Davao sports leader DAVAO City––The much-awaited Run with the Masters 2012 to honor the late Victorio Sai, is set on April 15 at 5 a.m. in an out-and-back course at the Davao Crocodile Park in Maa. Sai, race organizer of many running events in the past including the MILO Marathon, died four years ago on March 16 and had his 65th birthday last April 9, 2007. His son Kenneth took over as the Davao organizer of the MILO Marathon and Vantage Sports Promotion (VSP) president is now the most sought-after race organizer in Davao today. The Vantage Sports Promotions, on its celebration of the company’s fourth year anniversary, is now co-presenting with the Castrol Phils. Inc., the young Sai said. “But of course it is also our tribute to my late father,” he said.

Also present at the special public service sports program were Castrol Visayas-Mindanao area business manager Edgar Ponce and Sai’s wife Honey, also of Vantage Sports. “We are giving special discounts of 10 percent for our products during the race day. They can also get discount on the registration fee, except for the 500-meter category, if they will purchase any Castrol product,” Ponce said. The categories are the Ceelin 500m Kiddie Run for 7-9 and 10-12 years old, 5K age group, 10K age group, 15K Power Run (18 years old and above) and 21K half marathon (18 years old

and above). The entry fees are P250 for 500m, P350 for 5K and 10K and P500 for 15K and 21K. Free singlet, race bib, finisher’s kit, light meals and loot bags will be given to all the registrants. The 500m runners will also receive Ceelin bags. “But the 15K and 21K runners, however, will also each get a medal,” Sai said. The top two finishers in the 21K for men and women will earn P2,000 and P1,500 with medals in the age categories for 18-19, 30-39, 40-49, 5059 and 60 and above. The top two winners in the 15K will pocket P1,200 and P800 with medals for the same age categories. The top finishers in the 10K will each earn P1,000 plus a medal for the age categories in 13-18, 19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60 and above.

The first placers in the 5K with the same age categories will win P700 each, while the top two winners in the 500m for kids 7-9 and 10-12 will receive P500 and P300 with medals. “We want to give more chances for the runners to win,” Sai said. There will also be lots of raffle prizes during the awarding of this annual event sponsored by Adidas, Unilab, Hygienix, SMART, International Pharmaceuticals Inc., Orix Metro, Croc Park, Unifrutti and Nestle Phils. The deadline for the registration is on April 12 at 7:30 p.m. at the Adidas Gaisano Mall. “We are only accepting 250 runners in the 21K, 200 in the 15K and 100 kids in the 500m while the rest is on the 5K,” said Sai.

G. Pacana, AMERCO executive director said. “On the contrary, in Cagayan de Oro alone, new constructions such as Ayala’s Centrio Complex, Limketkai’s two hotel towers, and the Paseo del Rio Cagayan complex will all but erase the thin margin of reserve made possible by CEPALCO’s embedded generators which has so far enabled Cagayan de Oro to dodge the rotating brownouts plaguing other areas.” Mr. Pacana said AMRECO records show the 26 member cooperatives directly connected with the Mindanao grid have a current contracted demand of 520.58 megawatts with PSALM. However, when their respective Contracts for the Supply of Electrical Energy (CSEE) with PSALM expired over the past two years, PSALM unilaterally reduced their contracted demand by 205.92MW or by of 28.3% from the previously contracted amount of 726.50 ostensibly due to the loss of 200MW from the sale of the two power barges sold to TMI and the garnishment of the 108MW Iligan Diesel Power Plant (IDPP) by the Iligan City Government. As a result, 19 of these coops are now suffering an aggregate load curtailment of 109 hours daily or an average of 5.7 hrs each, with Davao Oriental Rural Electric Cooperative (DORECO) suffering the most with 12 hrs average daily curtailment, and another four suffering 10 hrs. each curtailment daily: Cotabato Electric Coop (COTELCO), Maguindanao Electric Cooperative (MAGELCO), Misamis Occidental Electric Cooperatives 1 & 2 ( MOELCI I & MOELCI II). Eight of the member coops directly connected to the Mindanao grid remain unaffected to date. The only available independent power producer (IPP) with surplus power still available, the two power barges of Therma Marine, Inc. (TMI) already has 192.2MW of its total 200MW capacity contracted to industrial customers and coops. However, Engr. Jovy P. Batiquin, senior vice president and chief operating officer, said TMI some 15MW which it would market in behalf of STEAG (which is constrained by the EPIRA to exclusively market 200MW of its output to NPC/PSALM) could still be available for interested customers. Although the coops have sourced another 9.5MW for other IPPs this still leaves them 40.42 MW short of their 2011 total demand. Even if TMI contracts its remaining 15MW from STEAG to the coops, demand would still not be sufficiently covered due to the growth in demand from the previous year, noted Mr. Noli Namocatcat, consultant of the Agusan del Norte Electric Cooperative (ANECO). Of the four privately owned power utilities in Mindanao, three (Cagayan Electric Power & Light Company, Cotabato Light & Power Co., Davao Light & Power Inc.) have their own embedded power plants which enable them to address the power curtailment while the

Iligan Light & Power Co., has been making do with allocations “lent” by industrial factories in Iligan which are on preventive maintenance shutdown or have power allocations to spare. Although there are still some 25 industrial power users drawing their power directly from PSALM, Usec. Asirit said only three of these were found to be overdrawing their respective allocations compared to many of the grid-connected coops. In a presentation made during the meeting, Gil Z. Cesar, Mindanao-B Marketing and Commercial Relations Manager of the National Power Corporation (NPC), showed figures which disclosed that for the month of February 2012, nineteen of the 26 AMRECO coops directly connected to the Mindanao grid accounted for 99.4% of the 51,492,035 kWH excess energy and 94.7% of the 123,912 kW excess load overdrawn against the total assigned allocations in the grid. Mr. Julie B. Real, Misamis Oriental Rural Service Cooperative 1 (MORESCO 1) general manager, said coops do not have the means to control the consumption of their consumers, especially after

PSALM’s unilateral reduction of their power allocations by some 30% across the board. “To ensure the integrity of the grid, everyone should be committed to strictly following their respective loads to maintain,” Usec. Asirit said. “It cannot be solved unless we solve it together.” Among the measures presented during the meeting by the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) were the immediate implementation of the ‘Week-Ahead Plant Capacity’ nomination in addition to the usual ‘Day Ahead Available Capacity’ (DAC) to give coops more time to plan their nominations. The DAC has also been moved up to 9:00AM instead of 2:00PM to enable both parties to maximize power available from the grid. “We have noted some coops have not been nominating their contracted capacities perhaps to avoid needlessly using more expensive electricity,” Usec. Asirit noted. “This constraints both PSALM/NPC and independent power producers like TMI from optimizing the dispatch of their available capacities, thus the ironical situation of some areas having to resort to rotating

brownouts because of the lack of available capacities to cover their respective curtailment since these have already been contracted for.” For their part, the coops through the initiative of Bukidnon Second Electric Cooperative (BUSECO) General Manager Edgardo R. Masongsong proposed the implementation of government subsidy program similar to Pantawid Pasada for public utility jeepneys, dredging of the Agus-Pulangi hydroelectric complexes to generate additional power, and the release of power aggregation guidelines by the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC). Mr. Dagooc suggested the proposed program could use the Pantawid Kuryente guidelines which have already been formulated and could benefit the “poorest of the poor” consumers who do not consumer more than 100kWh every month. He further proposed that the subsidy only cover the difference between the contracted rate of NPC/ PSALM and that of other IPPs such as TMI to further expedite its acceptability and implementation by the national government. “The rotating brownouts due to the power shortage is an urgent problem crying for immediate solutions,” Mr. Dagooc said. “We cannot just keep on passing through

the increases in the price of electricity to our customers since they are also the owners of our coops. Everybody has

to be proactive and share in the burden and solution of this problem until new plants come online.”
