LGU Salvador receives FMR Keen to increase farmers’ productivity and income that will reduce poverty incidence and attain food security, Mindanao North Coast Integrated Area Development Project (MNCIADP) continued to resolve farmers’ predicament in transporting their agricultural products to the nearest market by rehabilitating farmto-market roads (FMRs) that would reduce post production expenses. Recently, Lanao del Norte officially received a rehabilitated 1.5 km stretch FMR in Sitio Compra, Curva-Miagao to Brgy. Pancilan of Salvador and Sapad respectively, amounting to Php1,950,00.00. The project was materialized through a 77-23 cost sharing scheme between DA-MNCIADP and LGU Salvador of which Php 1,500,000.00 was shouldered by DA and Php 450,000.00 was contributed by the LGU. With its completion, produce from more than 40 hectares of rice and over 200 hectares of intercropped coconut and corn, tilled by nearly a hundred farming households, can now be easily brought to the nearest market through the passable rehabilitated FMR. Likewise, farm implements and machineries can be carried with ease to their respective farms during harvest. “Unlike before, we have to spend a lot so that farm machineries like thresher will be brought to the rice field. Thresher owners charged us additional payment for the dif-

ficulty in bringing the machine due to our almost impassable road. Now we can easily access the use of machineries and other post harvest facilities making the lives of the farmers more comfortable,” Curva-Miagao Brgy. Captain Armando Baclaan said. The LGU and residents gaily braced the responsibility in maintaining the said FMR hoping they can avail more projects from MNCIADP like the construction of Sapad Bridge which will benefit more farmers. Grateful to the department for the projects extended to them, Municipal Administrator Sultan Johnny A. Tawantawan also recognized the families who donated part of their lands consequently making way for the rehabilitation. On the other hand, MNCIADP recipients of carabao and cattle dispersal project showcased their healthy farm animals. Members of Sitio Compra Farmers Association and PalayCheck Farmers Association in Curva-Miagao and Pinawid-an, both in Salvador, Lanao del Norte, were awarded with 25 heads of cara- heifer and 47 heads of heifer, respectively. By owning these stocks, farmers are less burdened in tilling their lands with the immediate availability of draft animals. They had also generated additional income out of the payment for labor for plowing other farms thereby earning 200-250 pesos a day. # Ruthceli O. Alfeche, Department of Agriculture 10

Now passable, the newly rehabilitated Curva-Miagao to Pancilan FMR in Salvador, Lanao del Norte (top left) gives comfort to farmers in transporting their agricultural products to the market and in bringing farm implements to their farms. The FMR cuts production cost therefore maximizing farmers’ profit. Also in photos were Municipal Administrator Sultan Johnny A. Tawantawan (bottom left) and MNCIADP Focal Person Carlota S. Madriaga (bottom right).

Recognizing lot donors for MRDP road project. The Local Government Unit of Kibawe, Bukidnon recognizes the 27 families in barangay Natulungan of the said town for their generosity in donating portion of their lots to give way to the rehabilitation of the 2. 87 kms. farm-to-market road (FMR) (upper photo) in sitios Tanggos, Kimongcao, San Roque, and San Francisco. The FMR project was funded by the Department of Agriculture’s Mindanao Rural Development Program (DA-MRDP) in collaboration with the LGU of Kibawe. Lower photo shows the Municipal Mayor Minerva C. Casinabe handing in the Certificate of Recognition to Mr. Abundio Ligan, one of the donors during the Turnover Ceremony of the project on June 26, 2012 with DA-10 Regional Technical Director Roxana H. Hojas (center) and some local officials of Kibawe gracing the occasion. “This project from DA-MRDP will not be made possible without the generosity of these donors to share portion of their lots for the road,” said Mayor Casinabe while she also thanked the DA, the national government. Kibawe is implementing four FMRs under MRDP and completed two already, two are ongoing. (ROSIE R. E. PAASA)

8-ft. croc bolts from captivity KIDAPAWAN CITY– An eight-foot crocodile raised in captivity in a mini-zoo here was able to escape after a heavy flooding Saturday, a tourism official said. Marife Pame, head of the tourism and investment promotions of the Kidapawan City government, said they only knew the crocodile was on the loose after a regular check and cleanup inside the mini-zoo on Saturday noon. The zoo and park is located at Landmark, one of the tourist destinations

of the city. The heavy rains, which caused flooding in some parts of the city and nearby town, started Friday night and continued until the next morning. Armand Carcallas, zoo caretaker, said the crocodile destroyed the cyclone wire and fled to the Saguing River, which is just few feet away from the mini-zoo. The Saguing River is one of the longest and biggest rivers in North Cotabato. City Mayor Rodolfo Gantuangco has ordered the

manhunt and promised to give cash rewards to those who could bring the predator back to the zoo, one of the tourist attractions. Pame has already sought help of the police, forest rangers, soldiers, and rescue groups to track the crocodile down. Although the crocodile, tamed in a zoo, is not as ‘fierce’ as those in the wild, still, city officials have warned people, especially those living near the rivers, to be extremely careful. (PNA)

Police nab bgy chair associated with Abu

CIDG orders manhunt of killers of CIS chief in Dvo

Z AMB OANGA CIT Y– Combined police and military forces have arrested a barangay official who is an alleged member of the Abu Sayyaf involved in the kidnapping of an American priest 17 years ago in Jolo, Sulu, a top police official disclosed Friday. The arrested official was also involved in the killing of 14 soldiers 14 years ago in Basilan province, according to Criminal Investigation and Detection Group-9 (CIDG-9) director Senior Supt. Edgar Danao. The Philippine government through the Department of National Defense (DND) offered a P350,000 cash reward to any informant who could provide information leading to Manjuri’s arrest. Danao said the suspect, identified as Jumli Orie Manjuri alias Salam and Orie, was arrested around 12 noon Thursday in Barangay Cabunbata, Isabela City, the capital of Basilan province. He disclosed that Manjuri is the barangay chairman of Cabunbata. Danao said Manjuri was arrested on the strength of warrants of arrest for kidnapping with frustrated murder and kidnapping with serious illegal detention issued by a Jolo court and

Basilan court, respectively. Majuri’s arrest came after months of surveillance “we conducted on his activities,” Danao disclosed. The arrested bandit is one of the most trusted men of Abu Sayyaf leader Isnilon Hapilon, who is wanted not only by the Philippine government but also by the American government. Danao said that Manjuri was arrested while on his way to claim the Internal Revenue Allotment (IRA) of Barangay Cabunbata. He said that Manjuri was involved in the kidnapping of American priest, Fr. Clarence William Bertlesman on July 31, 1994 from the Asturias Chapel in Jolo, Sulu. Bertlesman was rescued several hours after he was seized by the Abu Sayyaf bandits. Danao said that Manjuri was also involved in a clash between Abu Sayyaf bandits and Special Forces Operational Course (SFOC) sometime in 1998 in Baungis, Lantawan, Basilan that resulted in the death of 14 soldiers. Danao said that Manjuri was also involved in the April 6, 2008 ambush of three coconut plantation workers in Tairan, Lantawan, Basilan.

CRIMINAL Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) chief Director Samuel D. Pagdilao Jr. has ordered a massive manhunt operation against three suspects in the killing of a Community Investigative Support (CIS) member in Davao City Thursday. Pagdilao identified the victim as Faustino L. Evangelio, CIS chief in Davao region. Senior Supt. Albert Ignatius Ferro said prior to CIS membership, the victim had been serving the CIDG as informant for more than five years. Ferro said that charges of murder were immediately filed Friday at the Davao City Prosecutors Office against gunmen Alex V. Tugado and Elisito Z. Tillo, both security guard of EDSA security agency; and Jerry T. Evangelio, owner of COTPLAS Industries Corp. and tagged as the mastermind. The case was docketed under NPS# xi-0212-g-2740. Investigation showed that the suspects shot Evangelio at apout 2 p.m. on July 12 at Binugao, Toril, Davao City. Ferro said the victim died after sustaining two gunshot wounds in the chest and neck from an M-16 rifle owned by the security agency. The suspects fled with the weapon after the killing. Ferro said the killing of Evengelio stemmed from the altercation between him and his cousin over a property being claimed by the suspect.

People expect of the political opposition as one that would fight for development and progress. The political oppositions are those who struggle to alleviate the lives of the people. As a tradition, the political opposition should demonstrate the importance of trust and credibility. People expect of quality opposition as catalyst of progressive change. On the contrary, the people of Cagayan de Oro City have seen a political opposition that works to sow dissension among local residents. Cagayanons observed that the local political opposition works for their personal interests – not the common interest of the people. We have observed that our political oppositions are adept in working to destroy personal lives of people. They have not laid down objective program of government. On the other hand, the political opposition resorts to hatred and vilification campaigns. The political opposition thinks of the people of Cagayan de Oro as their protégé who would succumb to vicious schemes. Nay, the political opposition is wrong. As literate people, we, the Cagayanons, believed in a community of constructive coexistence. We detest attitudes that, obviously, try to divide the peaceful co-existence of our people. We despise smear campaigns that insult the intelligence and sensibilities of our people. Consequently, the political opposition’s abrasive nature is the thing that people of Cagayan de Oro hate. Apart from the rough temperament of political opposition, they have this pretentious claim as the voice of the Cagayanons. The Cagayanons deny this claim. We, the people of Cagayan de Oro, could not be associated with a political opposition that has mastered the art of deception. We could not forget the political opposition’s vain attempt to divide the Cagayanons at the time of grief when Typhoon Sendong struck last year. At a time when we mourned over the lost of our loved ones, the political opposition sows hatred and confusion among us through fraud and deceit. We resisted this vain attempt to steal our sense of fairness. Since then, we always resisted efforts of the political opposition to yield to their desires. We would always be. MABUHI ANG CAGAYANONS!

Fairytale or Fact?

When Will Falsity Cease? ONCE again, politics is raring its ugly head in the infamous ARMM electoral exercise. The Comelec is currently undertaking registration of voters in the said region for the forthcoming 2013 elections. Yet, this early some politicians have started their shenanigans. In Masiu town, Lanao del Sur, media men were harassed by some political leaders of would-be candidates. One media man who reports to this paper alleged that they were monitoring the registration of voters in said town, upon request by the Comelec and military authorities in Marawi City, yet it was very unfortunate that they were instead met by a high-handed ex-police official who pushed him and told them to stop taking pictures and interviewing the just-arrived registrants. The incident could have turned violent had not a military officer intervened. The registrants who allegedly disembarked from 12 vans from Gen. Santos City, were non-residents of the town and are thus “flying voters.” Poor ARMM, it has always become a dangerous gaming ground for political warlords. ARMM has become synonymous with dirty politics. Not just normally, dirty politics, but abhorrent politics because too many lives were already sacrificed in that region, in the name of politics. When will these gaming politicos stop their plunder on the right of suffrage of Mindanaoans? We cannot forget the infamy of the Maguindanao Massacre. It was the killing ground of journalists and media men All because of politics. On the other hand, the voters of ARMM should now learn lessons. That if they continue to consent to be used by politicians in the name of money, they are not only selling their right of suffrage, but they are selling out as well a peaceful life, and the peace of the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao. The people of ARMM themselves should lead the fight against falsity and dishonesty.

THINK a minute… There was a man who thought he was going crazy, so he went to the doctor for an expert opinion. The doctor examined the man and told him: “I have to agree with you. You’re crazy.” But the man got angry and said: “I want a second opinion!” So the doctor said, “OK, you’re ugly too.” Sometimes we don’t want to hear the facts. A survey in America showed that 90% of Americans say they believe heaven is real, but only 25% of those same people say they believe hell is a real place. That’s like saying you believe there is light but no darkness, that there is right but no wrong. Common sense tells you that doesn’t make any sense! Just saying a place is not real doesn’t make it true. It’s like

Think A Minute Jhan Tiafau Hurst saying the North Pole is not real just because we don’t think so. The fact is Jesus Christ talked about hell much more than he did heaven. He said hell is a real place that’s full of the worst pain and endless suffering for everyone who rejects His good life by choosing to live their own way instead of the true way He created us to enjoy. Jesus repeatedly explained that the reason He came to give His

innocent life was to pay the penalty for all our sins. God the Son came to save us from suffering in hell forever, even though it cost Him His own divine life. You see, we can’t say we believe Jesus Christ spoke the truth about some things, but that He lied about other things like hell. He can’t be God and be a liar too. Remember, since God is perfectly good and pure, it’s simply not possible for Him to live together with any kind

of wrong or evil. Otherwise, He wouldn’t be God! Just like light and darkness cannot be in the same place together. But if we want God to leave us alone, He will. After all, He’s the One Who gave us our freedom to choose in the first place. He will never force us to love Him and live the way He created us to enjoy. Jesus said that even though our body dies, our soul will live forever—either in heaven or in hell. So it’s up to us to choose whether we want Jesus’ gift of forgiveness and way of living, or our own way. Heaven or hell. But you’re the only one who can send yourself to hell, because God’s already done everything He possibly can so you don’t go there. The choice and risk is yours. Just Think a Minute…

Of clowns and cheerleaders! I READ over the last State of the Province Address (SOPA) of Gov. Oscar Moreno of Misamis Oriental. All I could say is ‘good riddance.’ As usual, the SOPA was a litany of projects that the province purportedly accomplished in 2011. Nothing new, except that it was without substance. Literally, the SOPA lacks ingredients. On the one hand, it was rich with verbose exemplification of Cris Diaz projects anchored on hard selling and personal adulation. The SOPA deals on comparative statistics where Moreno projected Misamis Oriental to be ahead of other provinces in the country. In our various workshops, we always detest statistics. Descartes described statistics at its best. He said statistics are nothing but ‘lies, lies, and lies.’ Rene Descartes was known as the father of modern philosophy. Me, described statistics as spoof. Moreno’s SOPA was his last since his term of office ends next year. Everybody expect the governor to put his best on that ‘historic’ SOPA. Moreno was supposed to deal with what his nine-year stewardship of the province

attained. We failed to get into the heart of the province since Moreno dug only the peripherals. In its conclusive remarks, Moreno SOPA’s was a poor presentation of the governor’s accomplishment. It discussed Moreno’s personal projection of the province years from now. The conclusive statements only made a clear description of Moreno’s veiled accomplishments hidden in the magic of verbiage. Moreno could have given instructions that the presentation must smokescreen the thoughts of listeners. What was new was Moreno’s unscripted pronouncement of his intention to run for mayoral post in Cagayan de Oro City. What? Public school students forcibly hauled by school officials did not give a damn. Beside, school officials drove innocent students to watch (not listen) the SOPA to create a semblance that Moreno’s SOPA was popular. However, there were political clowns who jumped and cried out of joy. These wannabes had been searching for someone to prey on to pursue their political thirst. At last, Moreno answered their prayers. Unless, Moreno wants to be the next willing victim, he should get rid of them. Of course, Moreno needs political cheerleaders. Those misfits have the role.

Should we extend voter registration in ARMM?

THE Philippine Center for Islam and Democracy (PCID) called for an extension and an extended setting of voters’ registration outside the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM). PCID spokesperson Amina Rasul cited the democratic right of Muslims to participate in the electoral process which warrants both the extension DANTE M.

So the public may know Atty. Sara Jane A. Suguitan PCID partners who monitored the 10-day registration reported incidents that would warrant the extension of voter registration. “We want to ensure a more significant participation especially from those who are finding it difficult to reach registration sites due to the clustering of registration precincts resulting from inadequate number of voting machines at only 928 for 2,490 barangays.” Given this difficulty in access, registrants have been heavily burdened by the cost of transportation to registration precincts and the significant lack of public transportation. Media reports on spo-

radic violence and irregularities characteristic of ARMM elections have also discouraged many registrants who chose to forgo registration. A few of these incidents include the following: 1. A 17-year old was killed in Lumbac Unayan town, Lanao del Sur obviously from a registration-related matter; 2.The entire team of election officers in one town in Lanao left their post after gunshots were exchanged between supporters of rival politicians; 3. Periodic blackouts and the delay in the provision of power generators in some areas in Lanao del Sur have miffed those who wanted to register early but were told to wait

for hours; 4. Incidents of harassment towards registration officials by local politicians and their supporters in Maguindanao have been reported; 5. Registrants with questionable identification and qualifications, numbering close to 6 million according to the COMELEC, have been spotted in Tawi-Tawi and Lanao del Sur; 6. The COMELEC and other election watchdogs reported heavy interference from local politicians wanting to control the registration. With only two days to go into the completion of the 10-day ARMM voters’ registration, little has been done to address old yet persisting fraudulent practices despite calls from the national government to curb such irregularities. COMELEC should seriously consider extending the registration in the region for another three days so as to avoid disenfranchisement of voters. Email sara.suguitan@ gmail.com

Bukidnon holds multisectoral TB alliance By RUBY LEONORA R. BALISTOY

Editor: Joe del Puerto Felicilda • Email: jdelpf@yahoo.com

PRO-10 accepts applicants for accountant post By P/Supt. RONNIE FRANCIS M. CARIAGA

MALAYBALAY City -- The Provincial Health Office (PHO) has conducted a multisectoral alliance (PMSA) on tuberculosis (TB) control, July 13. Dr. Teresita G. Damasco, provincial health officer, said the move was prompted by studies that tuberculosis remains a huge burden to human health. “The consultative meeting aimed to explore possibilities in creating joint actions to improve TB detection rate in the province to prevent rapid transmission,” she added. Latest data show, 131 deaths attributed to TB in the province, but only 43 or 33 percent of such were reported from rural health units. Based on the figures, 88 of the patients or 67 percent, died without getting treatment. “Most of them have poor health-seeking behavior for fear of humiliation or shame for their conditions,” Dr. Damasco said. She explained that despite the fact that TB drugs are free in the 24 directly observed treatment (DOT) facilities, TB is the eighth biggest cause of deaths in the province. Dr. Damasco said, information and education drive will help address the problem. (RLRB-PIA 10, Bukidnon/asf)

Pepito, SBMember Hon. Nicasio C. Lacson, SBMember Hon. Loriano S. Jumarito, SBMember Hon. Felipe A. Perales, SBMember Hon. Leoncio C. Bagol, ABC President Absent: Hon. Peter John G. Yanoc, SK Federated President RESOLUTION NO. 41, S’ 2012 “A RESOLUTION ENACTING MUNICIPAL ORDINANCE NO. 226-12 ADOPTING AND APPROVING THE GENDER AND DEVELOPMENT CODE OF TUBOD THE CAPITAL TOWN OF THE PROVINCE OF LANAO DEL NORTE, AND APPROPRIATING FUNDS FOR THE PURPOSE.” WHEREAS, Section 2 of Republic Act No. 7192 state “The State recognizes the role of women in nation building and shall ensure the fundamental equality before the law of women and men. The State shall provide women rights and opportunities equal to that of men; and WHEREAS, the paramount consideration of the Sangguniang Bayan is to develop a gender-responsive community and desires that the adoption of GAD is an effort of giving women a voice and to participate actively in the decision-making and policy-making activities. WHEREFORE, on motion of SBMember Loriano S. Jumarito, duly seconded by SBMember Felipe A. Perales, it was resolved, as it is hereby resolved, to enact – MUNICIPAL ORDINANCE NO. 226 – 12 “ADOPTING AND APPROVING THE GENDER AND DEVELOPMENT CODE OF TUBOD, THE CAPITAL TOWN OF THE PROVINCE OF LANAO DEL NORTE.” Be enacted by the Members of the Sangguniang Bayan of Tubod, Lanao del Norte, in session assembled that: Article I Title, Statement of Policy and Definition of Terms Section 1. Title – This Ordinance shall be known as the “Gender and Development Code of Tubod,” herein referred to as GAD CODE. Section 2. Statement of Policy – It shall be the policy of the Local Government Unit of Tubod, Lanao del Norte to ensure both women and men benefit equally and participate directly in the development programs and projects of its various departments and ensure the full participation and involvement of both men and women in the development process, pursuant to R.A. 7192. This Code is an indelible blueprint – a concrete manifestation of the Municipal Government strong adherence to the time-honored democratic tenet that men and women in a civil society are equal. This significant initiative is aimed at mainstreaming women’s concern, ensure the fundamental equality before the law, open a wide arena for their active participatory role in the development process, for equal rights and opportunities. Moreover, this Code is not only substantially supported by legal basis, national international laws. It is likewise backed up by biblical and moral basis. The book of Genesis says that God created a woman not from the head of a man so as not from the head of a man so as not to prevail upon him, neither from the feet so as not to be subordinated by him, but from one of the ribs so as to be equal with him. To attain the foregoing policy, all Local Government Offices and instrumentalities shall ensure that women and girls benefit equally and participate directly in the development programs and projects of said agency, to ensure the full participation and involvement of women in development process pursuant to R.A. 7192; that all government project proposals shall ascertain the inclusion of gender-responsive indicators and guidelines while not be remiss in locating the root of women oppression, pursuant to the United Nations Declarations and Convention of Women; and all Municipal Government offices, and instrumentalities shall review and revise all their regulations, ordinances and procedures to remove gender bias therein within two years. Section 3. Rights of Women – Every Woman has the right: a. To good and quality education; b. To comprehensive and other forms of financial credit; c. To access loans and other forms of financial credit; d. To join leisure, sports, cultural activities, spiritual/religious freedom of speech, to express one’s views/beliefs for the common good; e. To decide on the number of children and on the number of years between pregnancies; f. To share parenting responsibilities; g.

To be free from all forms of slavery and prostitution; j. To vote, run for election and run for public office; k. To represent the country internationally. However, it is unfortunate that a macho image in our society still exists as it continues to view women as the “weaker sex”. Men are traditionally the heads of households and in most organizations. Aside from the ramp modeling and beauty contests, women today do not share the power and prestige, status and societal position as men. Rather, they play supportive roles to men and tend to yield to the ideal that major decisions are male prerogatives. Oftentimes, women are exploited in media commercials, impressing upon the public that without their attractive and pleasing fixtures, products would be less appealing. But in reality women should not be viewed as second class to men but as partners of men in the development of society. In light of these historical gender biases, inequalities and inequities, this piece of local legislation, based on national and international laws, will provide the Local Government of Tubod a policy direction to formulate programs and strategies among others that will: 1.

Has the Aquino govt lost momentum in running after Arroyo? By BENJIE OLIVEROS of Bulatlat.com

THE impeachment and eventual resignation of former ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez, and the impeachment of former chief justice Renato Corona last year, which resulted in his removal this year, would surely banner the enumeration of accomplishments of President Benigno Aquino III. The removal of Gutierrez and Corona, the principal protectors of former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and the biggest stumbling blocks to holding her to account for her crimes against the people, are laudable accomplishments. However, these would lose its significance if the process falls short of bringing Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, her family and top officials to account for all their crimes against the people, to include plunder, electoral fraud and sabotage, and most espe-

cially extrajudicial killings, enforced disappearances and other human rights violations. It is a bad enough deed for a president and his or her family to dip their hands into the nation’s coffers; it becomes worse, if they also deny from the people, their only means of democratic participation: voting. Add these to the most terrible crimes of all: killing 1,026 people, and making 206 others disappear. As of the present, the Aquino government has been able to file a case of electoral sabotage against Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. This, it did shortly after Arroyo tried to sneak out of the country but was held at the departure area. The bail hearings have just been concluded – with Judge Jesus Mupas of the Pasay Regional Trial Court about to issue a decision on the petition – and the pre-trial has been set on August 23. Also graft charges have been filed before the Sandiganbayan against Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s husband Miguel and 20 Philippine National Police (PNP) officials for the fraudulent sale of second-hand helicopters to the PNP, which were mis-

represented as brand new. However, the wheels of justice in these cases have been grinding so slowly. Thus, after the frantic pace of the two impeachment proceedings last year, the process to put the Arroyos before the bar of justice has considerably slowed down. The question is why? With two of the biggest obstacles – Gutierrez and Corona – out of the way, why has the process slowed down? Why is it that the Aquino government seems content with the electoral sabotage case? With the numerous corruption scandals involving the Arroyos, why hasn’t a plunder charge been filed? Surely, there are a lot of evidences that have been gathered as these have been the subject of numerous Congressional investigations. Aren’t two years enough to build a case? It took only three months for a plunder charge to be filed against former president Joseph Estrada when he was ousted in 2001. Added to this, a plunder case is nonbailableso it could provide the basis for the continued detention of former president Arroyo. Why has the Aquino government been ignoring the cries for justice of the relatives of victims of extrajudicial killings and enforced disappearances? Surely these

had been the most virulent and worst crimes of the previous Arroyo administration. Moreover, holding Arroyo and her top military and police officials accountable for these abhorrent crimes against the people would have been a major step in confronting impunity. It could have spared the lives of Fr. Fausto “Pops” Tentorio, Willem Geertman, councilor and Bayan Muna Fernando Baldomero of Aklan, farmer Guillermo Castillo of Mindoro, urban poor leader Antonio Homo, Rodel Estrellado of Bicol, B’laan tribal chief Rudy Yalon-Dejos and his son Rody Rick, and more than 80 others. Has the Aquino government run out of momentum? “To those who are talking about reconciliation, if they mean that they would like us to simply forget about the wrongs that they have committed in the past, we have this to say: there can be no reconciliation without justice.” These are tough words uttered by President Benigno Aquino III during his inaugural address. But these need to be matched by action. And so far, the actions of the Aquino government for justice have come far in-between, and have fallen short of what is expected of it. (http:// bulatlat.com)

House urged to probe National leaders laud unity of Muslims the manufacturing and Christians in Lanao del Norte of herbal medicines By ALLAN MEDIANTE

INVESTIGATIONS are underway over alleged distribution in the market of certain herbal medicines whose production were not properly handled posing dangers and risks the health of consumers’ health. A lawmaker said there is a serious need to look into these reports to guarantee the safety of the products and likewise ensure that these are free from contamination. The House Committees on Trade and Industry, Health and the Quality Affordable Medicines Oversight Committee were asked to to look into the matter to safeguard the buying public. “There have been reports circulating that certain herbal medicines like herbal cough syrups were found to contain bacteria beyond the safety standards set by the Philippine Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which can be harmful to the body if ingested,” Rep. Theresa Bonoan-David of Manila said. The solon says that ingestion of high levels of aerobic bacteria cause a number of potential adverse effects, ranging from an upset stomach to more serious symptoms such as fever and gastrointestinal symptoms including vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhea, which in severe cases, could lead to lifethreatening dehydration. Bonoan-David cited Sec. 15, Article II of the Constitution which declares that the State shall protect and promote the right to health of the people and instill health consciousness among them. Bonoan-David likewise cited Sec. 12, Article XIII which affirms that the State shall establish and maintain

an effective food and drug regulatory system and undertake appropriate health, manpower development and research responsive to the country’s health needs and problems. Bonoan-David said Republic Act 8423 otherwise known as the “Traditional Alternative Medicine Act (TAMA Act) was passed on December 7, 1977 in response to the people’s need for a proven safe and effective traditional and alternative health care products, services and technologies. “The growth of the herbal medicine industry has since grown significantly since the passage of RA 8423 in 1977 and successfully penetrated the markets and are being sold in drugstores and supermarkets and are even advertised on radio and television,” BonoanDavid said. Recently, the Department of Health (DOH) embraced the medicinal value of herbal plants by approving 10 medicinal plants to be used as herbal medicine in the Philippines due to its beneficial effects, Bonoan-David said. Bonoan-David said among these medicinal plants recognized by the DOH are Akapulko (Cassia Alata) to treat insect bites; Ampalaya (Momordica Charantia) for diabetes, Bawang (Allium Sativum) for infections; Bayabas (Osidium Guajava) for cough; Lagundi (Vitex Negundo) for cough, colds and fever; Niyog-niyogan (Quisqualis Indical.) for intestinal parasites; Sambong (Blumea Balsamiferia) for kidney stones; Tsaang Gubat (Ehretia Microphylla Lam.) for eczema; Ulasimang Bato I Pansit-Pansitan (Peperomia Pellucid a) for gout and Yerba Buena (Clinopodium Douglasii) for rheumatism.

TUBOD, Lanao del Norte – Many national leaders who came to witness the festivities during the 53rd Araw ng Lanao del Norte were impressed with the unity shown by the Muslims and Christians in this fastrising province. Most of the national personalities who came belong to the legislative branch of government. “Karamihan ng mga lugar sa Mindanao ay hindi umaasenso dahil sa kagulohan, away at bangayan sa pagitan ng mga relihiyon. Sana makita nila ang advantage at bentahi ng pagkaka-isa tulad ng meron kayo dito sa Lanao

del Norte”, Senator Francis ‘Chiz’ Escudero said. Senator Escudero was guest speaker of the Charter Day culmination program held last July 4, 2012 at the cavernous Mindanao Civic Center (MCC) gymnasium which was attended by more than 5,000 barangay officials from 21 municipalities of the province. During the civic parade, the participants were ecstatic to see thousands of flower petals fall from the sky as the Army’s 2nd Mechanized Infantry (Magbalantay) Brigade conducted flower dropping using their Cessna aircraft. Another popular politi-

cal figure who joined in the Charter Day celebration was Representative Cynthia Villar of Las Pinas who was also the guest speaker during Tourism Day on July 2. “I am very impressed with the facilities of Lanao del Norte. Napakaganda kasi naman talaga ng Lanao del Norte. Mindanao is really a nice place to see and Lanao del norte is one of those places”, admired Congresswoman Villar. In an interview with local media, Zambales Representative Ma. Milagros “Mitos” Magsaysay also expressed her admiration on the camaraderie between the biggest religious groups in the province saying, “This is

my first time here in Lanao del Norte, nakita ko napakapeaceful pala dito na kaya pong magsama ang mga Kristiyano at mga Muslim under one roof, at narinig ko nga po na kaya palang mag-jamming ng Muslim at Kristiyano”. For his part, former-Governor Robert “Ace” Barbers invited local and foreign tourists to visit Lanao del Norte and experience the province known as the ‘land of beauty and bounty’ and the ‘Motocross Capital of the Philippines’. “Pumunta kayo dito sa Lanao del Norte because this is a very safe place”, encouraged Barbers.

Mining Executive Order underwent proper consultation with stakeholders, Malacañang insists MALACAÑANG belied criticism from certain quarters that Executive Order No. 79 did not undergo the proper consultation with stakeholders before President Benigno S. Aquino III affixed his signature to his directive harmonizing mining policies and regulations in the country. In a press briefing in Malacañang on Monday, Presidential Communications Development and

Strategic Planning Secretary Ramon Carandang insisted that all stakeholders – nongovernmental organizations, environmental groups and local government units – were represented in discussions leading to the drafting of the new Mining EO. He added that the reason why the Executive Order took some time before its formal implementation last July 9, was because “we had been discussing this with

stakeholders.” “So there was ample consultation on the Mining EO and I think that on the whole, most reasonable stakeholders in mining have agreed that perhaps, while it is not ideal from their point of view, it is something most stakeholders can live with,” Carandang said. He pointed out that the new Mining EO struck a balance between allowing the industry to flourish without

too much of an impact on the environment. “This is an EO that, we believe, strikes a balance between the different interests in the country,” Carandang said. Executive Order No. 79 identifies zones closed to mining applications – either for contracts, concessions or agreements – including areas in the National Tourism Development Plan, ORDER/PAGE 11

Koko warns public on PDAF scam SENATOR Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III, PDP Laban President, today warned the public against impostors and syndicates using his name to solicit projects purportedly using the Priority Development Assistance Fund, otherwise known as pork barrel. “I have not authorized anybody to solicit projects using PDAF money. I will not tolerate any attempt by unscrupulous individuals to trick the unsuspecting and the unwary into believing that I am using the PDAF for less than noble purposes,” Pimentel said. “Those approached by these impostors should report them to authorities for the filing of appropriate criminal cases,” the senator said. The senator emphasized that PDAF projects are aimed at eradicating poverty and ensuring that the benefits of economic growth are equitably distributed throughout the country. Pimentel said PDAF funds should go only to basic infrastructure, school buildings, health, education and social welfare programs and projects that directly touch the lives of the people and make the government a meaningful presence in their daily lives. “PDAF funds should be used only for projects that will truly benefit the people. I stand for complete transparency and accountability in the use of PDAF funds,” Pimentel said.

existence of alleged flying registrants in this town.” Mongcal said. “We e ve n re p or te d this thru text messages to COMELEC Commissioner Armando Velasco who replied that we try to get photos and video shots as supporting evidence on the alleged flying registrants coming into the area,” Mongcal added. The following day, July 12, the media men said they proceeded to the municipality of Masiu, this province and stationed themselves at Macadaag Elementary School, one of the registration centers in said town. “We interviewed the Head of the team of the Commission on Election (COMELEC) Manila who was assigned in Masiu, a certain Ms. Judith dela Cruz,” Mongcal said. COMELEC officer dela Cruz bared that on July 9, the first day of general registration they had not met the average of 170 registrants per day because they started registering at 10:00 a.m. But in the following two days their machines had registered more than 200 voters. Dela Cruz further said the general registration of Masiu town was quite peaceful because the registrants followed the COMELEC’s rules and regulation, and supported by the military and PNP. “Then at 10:30a.m. more or less, we received a report that alleged flying registrants were on their way to Masiu registration center coming from a barangay in the lake shore. The report also indicated that registrants were on board a 6 x 6 truck and a 4 x 4 car. They arrived at about 11:0 0a.m. We saw about 30 people who disembarked and we took a photo shot and started interviewing some of them,” Mongcal narrated. Suddenly, a man who also disembarked from the car angrily approached Mongcal and pushed him aside, yelling: ”Why are you investigating? You don’t know me? I’m retired police superintendent Paniares Pinto. Why are you here? Mongcal responded, “Sir, we are here because the COMELEC and the military asked our help to monitor the Comelec registration. We are trying to help so that there will be an orderly, clean, honest and credible registration, and this is our work as members of the 4th Estate.” At this juncture, an Army intelligence officer interfered and dissuaded Pinto to calm down, and told him not to harass the media men because they were assigned in said town to monitor the Comelec registration. The military also announced that they will make a follow up investigation on the alleged entry of the “flying registrants” and to file

cases with the COMELEC once it is proven hat nonresidents in Masiu town have registered as voters. After, the incident. the entry of more flying registrants were aborted as media men and the authorities proceeded to monitor the registration centers. It was further learned that Mr. Pinto and certain Mr. Abdul Raffy Guiling are supporters of the opposition party in Masiu town, and were allegedly the ones bringing in the alleged flying registrants. In the last 2010 election same persons were alleged to have created trouble in the voting centers which caused people and voters in this town to panic.

Proposed law regulating operation of amusement rides, carnivals up for OK A PROPOSED law regulating the operation of amusement rides, carnivals and circuses, and outdoor concerts, shows, sports and other amusement or entertainment activities utilizing transportable or movable stage or platform, bleachers, canopy and similar structures will be tackled by the City Council during its regular session tomorrow to be presided over by Vice Mayor Caesar Ian Acenas. The proposed legislation was introduced by Councilors Ramon G. Tabor, Alexander S. Dacer and Emmanuel D. Abejuela upon noting incidents of physical injuries and damages to properties in some cities due to malfunctioning of amusement rides. The authors believe that it is necessary to determine the mechanical soundness of these rides, facilities and structures to ensure the protection of the public and to preclude accidents. The proposed legislation prohibits any person or company from operating amusement rides without first securing a business permit or Special Permit from the office of the city mayor. A Safety

Certificate shall be issued by the Office of the Building Official after conducting electrical, structural and mechanical inspection of these establishments. Once the permit has been approved, the owners will be required to post this in a conspicuous place at the entrance of carnivals and amusement places. Owners shall be required to maintain the cleanliness and sanitation of the premises; to conspicuously display the rules and regulations and safety precautions of the amusement rides especially to the minors and to comply with the maintenance bulletin and the service manual, including mounting instructions issued for the ride by the manufacturer. Owners should also ensure that no safety devise is removed or altered without the manufacturer’s authorization. Those issued permits will likewise be required to have a first aid kit on the sight, a means of communication with emergency services and to establish emergency procedures. The proposed ordinance imposes penalties to violators. (LCR)

ment of Environment and Natural Resources. The presidential order was based on the joint resolution of the Cabinet clusters on climate change adaptation and mitigation, and economic development

dated March 16, 2012 to improve environmental mining standards and increase revenues to promote sustainable development and social growth, both at the national and local levels.

This affiliation stemmed from KIA’s desire to support these talented athletes who have been representing the country in local and international football competitions. It’s no secret that KIA has fallen in love with the game and CAC is determined to help the

Azkals in their pursuit of excellence in sports. In the course of 2011, CAC has been present in Azkals matches and several of the players have expressed their support for Kia on various occasions. In December 2011, Azkals veterans were also given their own KIA vehicle to drive around. With a year of exciting collaborations with the team, CAC extended their contract for a second year as the Azkals’ official transport provider. Held

at the Azkals Sports Bar last June 21, the signing event was witnessed by the motoring and sports media. KIA Motors as FIFA World Cup Sponsor Following its aggressive sports marketing strategy, KIA will be one of the major sponsors at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. As one of the official FIFA partners, KIA will be supplying vehicles from its model line-up that will be used during FIFA events. KIA is also

boosting its brand recognition through a number of marketing activities and A-board advertisements in the stadiums during the games. KIA Motor’s commitment to sports and passion for football are showcased in its continued partnership with the Philippine Azkals. With the different sports sponsorships, KIA Motors Corporation will continue to strengthen the brand as a global automaker that is adventurous and young-at-heart. Exhibit 1-b

THE USA Team’s exuberance on winning against the Dominican Republic in their exhibition opener, 59-113, at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas last week was short lived on knowing that most their biggest star players would not make it to the Olympic team this year. Los Angeles Clippers All-Star forward Blake Griffin, who went home earlier in the day with a sore left knee, was diagnosed with a ‘torn left meniscus’ and will require surgery early this week. Griffin would be out for eight weeks that would cost him his spot on the Olympic team. The Clippers who had just signed Griffin to a five-year extension contract worth $95 million had reason to be nervous. ‘It’s a big blow,’ said Griffin’s All-Star teammate Chris Paul. Paul’s dream to be with Griffin in the Olympic was shattered. Earlier, Paul expressed his desire to be with Griffin ‘so we

both could grow a little bit as players.’ Other U.S. stars who would miss the games due to injury included Dwight Howard, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Derrick Rose, Chauncey Billups and LaMarcus Aldridge. Rookie Anthony Davis of Hornets filled in for Griffin in last week’s game opener with Dominican Republic. The USA Basketball might look for someone to replace Griffin although nothing was official. David could not replace Griffin until Griffin formally withdraws from the team. Davis showed his best in the debut, scoring eight points, including a fourpoint play, in just 10 minutes, all in the fourth quarter, of the 113-59 win. “I haven’t heard anything other than I’m still an alternate,” Davis said. “No one has told me anything different.” USA Basketball chairperson Jerry Colangelo said that Davis is the only candidate they are looking at to replace Griffin on the 12-man roster.

300 houses to be constructed in Mambuaya for Sendong victims HELP for Typhoon Sendong victims continue to come. Mayor Vicente Emano said the Federation of People’s Sustainable Development Cooperative headed by Director Dr. Billy Tusalem will be constructing 300 houses in barangay Mambuaya for the calamity victims. The Power learned that the groundbreaking ceremony will be held on July 17 at the project site. Mayor Emano welcomes this donation saying it will go a long way in alleviating the plight of the Sendong survivors. “Sa ngalan sa kagamhanan sa dakbayan sa Cagayan de Oro, mapasalamaton ako’g dako sa tabang ug kaikag ni Dr. Tusalem sa pagtukod og dugang kabalayan alang sa atong mga kaigsoonang nawad-an og panimalay tungod sa trahedya,” said Mayor Emano in a press statement.
