had reached their necks. “We pushed the makeshift boat with Cyrus John in it. We alternately dog-paddled and floated, always trying to get near the tallest trees that still weren’t submerged under the quickly-rising water. The backpack I had hurriedly stuffed with a few clothes and personal items became too heavy for me so I let go of it. All that mattered was

getting our son to safety,” said Johnamae. The entire family was able to swim to safety and eventually ended up in the nearby school where their other neighbors had also taken shelter.

House adopts resolution scrapping revised SALN By CRIS DIAZ, Associate Editor

THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVE adopted a resolution urging the Civil Service Commission to withdraw CSC Memorandum Circular 19, series of 2011 prescribing a revised statement of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALN) form. House Resolution No. 2219 said that the CSC Memorandum Circular 19, s. 2011 approved on April 17, 2011, was contrary to the 1987 Constitution and Republic Act 6713. Rep. Rufus Rodriguez, 2nd District of Cagayan de Oro City, who filed the resolution, said that CSC MC No. 19, S.2011 requires information from months

before its approval which may have already been forgotten by the ‘declarant’ and this new requirement by the CSC makes his inadvertence punishable. He said the revised SALN form might be too complex for a public employee who cannot afford to hire the services of an attorney and/or an accountant to assist him or

her in the filling up of the said form. Such a complex form might lead to useless or unjustified complaints against public officers for violations of the law by mere inadvertence, confusion, honest mistake or misapprehension of difficult legal and accounting concepts, Rodriguez added. The resolution cited Section 8 of Republic Act 6713, approved on February 20, 1985, otherwise known as the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards of Public Officials and Employees, which provides that: “Public officials and employees have an obligation to accomplish and

submit declarations under oath of, and the public has the right to know, their assets, liabilities, net worth and financial and business interests including those of their spouses and of unmarried children under eighteen (18) years of age living in their households”; It said that CSC MC No. 19, S.2011 may also be considered as an ex post facto law, which the 1987 C onstitution prohibits in so far as the Circular punishes the ‘declarant’ for failure to state his income and expenses in the preceding year when the Circular has not yet been published and made effective.

PNoy, Morales lead PPI press forum speakers FOR the first time in its history and in celebration of its 25th year since reactivation, the Philippine Press Institute (PPI) will have President Benigno S. Aquino III and Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales as keynote speakers during its two-day by-invitation only 16th National Press Forum on April 23-24 at the Traders Hotel Manila. This also marks the 48th founding year of the Institute since 1964. It was rendered moribund during martial law, re-activated after the People Power Revolution, and incorporated in 1987. President Aquino will be the first head of state to address the only annual gathering of owners, publishers and editors from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, representing 72 pub-

AQUINO lications. The President is expected to deliver a message on the “protection and preservation of press freedom and democracy” in the opening ceremonies on April 23. Justice Conchita Carpio-Morales will keynote the Community Press Awards, honoring the best civic journalism reportage of the previous year. Justice Carpio-Morales

MORALES administered the oath of office to President Aquino on June 30, 2010, the first female magistrate to do so. The PPI Board was inducted by the President on October 3, 2011 in Malacañan. The National Press Forum is the only conference of its kind when the collective leadership of the nation’s influential publications convene in

Manila to discuss matters concerning the industry and issues affecting the professional and ethical practice of journalism. This year’s conference theme “Media Accountability and Public Engagement” will serve as opportunity for the media to assess itself since the restoration of democracy over 25 years ago. Attendant issues to be discussed will be the Asian Media Barometer: The Philippine Study, media self-regulation and the safety and welfare of journalists. Since 2009, the annual National Press Forum, one of the most-anticipated print media events, is being consistently supported by The Coca-Cola Export Corporation (TCCEC) under its long-term project on “Building Better Communities SPEAKERS/p.11

Learning to love

Perry Diaz San Francisco, CA

‘Justice in my lifetime’ Last part Ana said that in the past 20 plus years, the Corona couple heaped sufferings upon her parents and the rest of the BGEI stockholders. She said that they were constantly harassed by the Coronas. “There were people sent to our house with guns, scaring my parents, and phone calls in the middle of the night because there were pending cases regarding this corporation,” she said. “Inapi kami talaga (We were really oppressed). If they can do (this) to their own blood relatives, what more to people out there who are old, are not politicians, are not rich and are not lawyers? My parents were just ordinary citizens,

just being good citizens here in the Philippines and yet to have your own blood relatives cause this type of injustice is…” She was lost for words and started sobbing. Ana’s father passed away without getting justice. Her mother, Raymunda is now 83 years old but would like to see justice. And so does Sister Flory who just turned 90. Her birthday wish was: “I want to see justice in my lifetime.” But with Corona enthroned as the country’s Chief Justice, can justice really be served? Ana said that she will continue to fight because she promised her father on his deathbed, “I would continue his fight

THINK a minute. About love. It makes the world go around, right? The problem is that there doesn’t seem to be much going around! Most of us know that to love and be loved is what life is all about. So why is there so little real love in the world? Why have so many of us not learned how? How do I learn to love? It’s simple: until I have been truly loved by someone else, I don’t know how to truly love others. I know what you’re thinking: “No one has ever loved me like that! I mean really loved me all the time

Think A Minute Jhan Tiafau Hurst without conditions, just as I am.” Even our parents and spouse many times fail to love us that way. So how can I ever learn to love? I’ve got some very good news for you. Someone already has loved you like that! You just didn’t know it. We learn to love by seeing

God’s love for us in Jesus Christ. Jesus loves you without conditions. No person in history has lived with such a perfect kind of love for others has Jesus Christ did. Real love cannot be done by slogans or songs. They cannot change our self-centered heart and na-

ture. We all want real love, but none of us is able to give it. That’s why Jesus came: to show us what real love looks like. Jesus has given us the greatest picture and proof of His love for us—by giving His perfectly innocent life for all of our wrongs. So how do you learn to love? Just let Jesus love you. Ask Him to take charge of your heart and life everyday. And as you receive His love and power every day, you’ll start learning how to love others like that; since you’ll always be getting the love you need from Him. Just Think a Minute.

The mediocre mind

IN PREVIOUS issues, this corner challenged the consuming public to unite and work together to transform local utility firms into cooperatives. These utility firms are water and power sectors. We have seen how cooperatives run utility firms with success especially in the power sector. Examples LIFETIME/p.11 of these are Moresco 1 and Moresco II in Misamis Oriental, Agusan del Cris Diaz Norte Electric Cooperative in Agusan del Norte and Bukidnon Electric Cooperative. If cooperatives can efficiently manage electric cowww.mindanaodailybalita.com operatives, then, there is enough reason for a cooperative to successfully managed local water services, too. The MINDANAO DAILY NEWS is published by Mindanao We issued the challenge in response to complaints Daily Balita at Door 3, Geleng Bldg., Lapasan Highway, Cagayan de Oro City. It is registered with the Department about exorbitant rates and surcharges imposed by of Trade and Industry (DTI), Region 10 with CerƟfifcate No. local utility firms. These complaints were not only 01349532, and with Business Permit No. 02275, TIN No. on exorbitant rates and on surcharges. Certainly, the 946-396-807-001 ‘unfair’ treatment in the hands of these utility firms Telefax Nos: (088) 856-3344, (08822)74-53-80, must have also inflamed consumers. Cell nos.: 0917-7121424, 0923-432-0687 However, it is unfortunate that only few people Website: www//mindanaodailybalita.com responded in pursuing the challenge. Perhaps, it is E-mail: mindanaodaily.ads@gmail.com human to be mediocre at times when a call for action DANTE M. SUDARIA

is set. In the end, it suffices to say that we demonstrate frustration and anger by reciting a litany of hallow criticism. Thus, this corner finds it futile to pursue its call for a signature campaign against local utility firms in Cagayan de Oro City. Perhaps, the challenged was enough for an aggrieved consuming public to respond and organize among themselves to express their grievances. After all, there were organizations formed to bring these complaints to proper forum. Yet, it appears that the group has ceased to pursue their plans. We do not know why the group suddenly fell silent. Last year, consumers organized themselves purportedly to guard the consuming public against unfair power rate increases. Consumers welcomed the birth of the group. Although glad, the consuming public cautiously watched the group with keen interest. Somehow, frustrations sipped in when the group appeared lethargic in addressing consumers’ complaints. It seems that the run of the mill consumers’ group has lost steam. Anyway, optimism is still high that one day a group will come to fight for the interest of the consuming public. react: crisguardian@yahoo.com

5 More farmers learn Organic Farming through SOA www.mindanaodailybalita.com

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21, 2012

T

UBOD, Lanao del Norte – WITH the unforeseen challenges that a farmer has to surmount in their respective farming ventures, the Department of Agriculture Regional Field Office 10 (DA-10) through the Regional Agriculture and Fisheries Information Division (RAFID) has produced 97 graduates on the School-on-the-Air (SOA) program. A modular discussion aired over the radio that seeks to convey agricultural topics to farmers in far-flung areas, the three-month long SOA on Organic Agriculture formally culminated through a graduation rite on March 9, 2012 at the Macapagal Training Center of this municipality. The program was aired over radio station Radio Natin, Love Radio FM from December 2011 to February 2012 as it aimed to advance organic farming as a lifestyle to guarantee food security and self-sufficiency while upholding an ecologically-sound environment, improving the health of producers and consumers alike, and augmenting the income of farmers within the province. Accordingly, it would contribute in the agency’s clamor in propelling and implementing organic agriculture practices within the country as mandated in Republic Act No. 10068 or the Organic Agriculture Act of 2010, which is principally authored by no less than Agriculture Secretary Proceso J. Alcala. Farmer-graduates came from the municipalities of Baroy, Kapatagan, Tubod and Sapad, wherein Agnes B. Padua claimed the coveted top spot after complying a series of quizzes and the final assessment exam with distinguished marks. Next to Padua in the honor roll is Fe B. Pantinople (2nd honors), Severa S. Bacaling (3rd), Margarita B. Santarita (4th), Marcelita B. Slayan (5th), Merlyn C. Rosal (6th), Teresita T. Calago (7th), Myrna M. Calago (8th), Elisa A. Macalisang (9th) and Teresita M. Bacalso (10th). In attendance to confirm the graduating

SOA on Organic Agriculture in LDN. Despite technological advancements, the radio remains a potent tool in bringing significant agricultural lessons to farmers located in remotes areas in the province of Lanao del Norte through the DA-10’s SOA program. Top photo shows the department’s latest batch of SOA graduates. Bottom left photo shows DA-10 RAFID Division Chief Mary Grace B. Sta. Elena gleefully handing over a certificate of completion to one of the farmer-graduates. Right photo shows valedictorian Agnes B. Padua extending his heartfelt gratitude for the agency’s program that allows farmers like her to learn a healthier way of farming right at the comforts of her own home.

class is DA-10 RAFID Chief Mary Grace B. Sta. Elena, who put to mind the farmer-graduates to apply and replicate the knowledge, particularly on technologies obtained from the department. Otherwise, she added that their learning will not measure up to the efforts exerted behind the people of the program, if and when, they will not employ them in their respective farms. During the graduation ceremony, DA-10 likewise conferred the honorees with plaques of recognition and one bag of corn seeds, apiece. Meanwhile, participating students, municipalities, agriculturists and technicians were given certificates of completion and recognition, assorted vegetable seeds, sprinklers and other freebies, courtesy from the agency and the province’s agriculture office (PAOs). Also joining the occasion is Provincial Agriculturist Letecia G. Ditucalan and Sangguniang Panlalawigan member and Vice Chairman on the Committee of Agriculture Honorable Tawamtawam M. Cauntongan. For this year, DA-10 RAFID is targeting to conduct a total of three SOA programs which intends to bring agricultural impact to around 600 farmer-beneficiaries and an additional of two regular Agri-Pinoy radio programs. Furthermore, the division would carry on in initiating such program in coordination with the different agriculture offices in the various provinces within the region. # (Joanne L. Olson, DA-10)

During their small talk, the Navajo woman glances surreptitiously at a brown bag on the front seat between them. “If you’re wondering what’s in the bag,” offers the woman, “It’s a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband.” The Navajo woman is silent for a while, nods several times and says, “Good trade.”

that rushed to the aid of the affected families of Iligan gave them food packages as well as blankets. Yamcy, in the meantime, was determined to check on the house that they left behind. “It was not much, but it was ours and if there was any chance that anything could be recovered, I wanted to take it,” he said. Everyday for the following three days after Sendong left and the f lood waters began to subside, Yamcy returned to Purok 12. He saw that the basic structure — the skeleton — of their house had survived, but the roof was gone and many of the walls were damaged. He began to clear the house of mud and debris, and salvaged whatever he could from his immediate environment. As soon as they finish rebuilding their house with the help of relief agencies, Yamcy said, he will go and look for work because he had been unemployed for the last three months. Before Sendong struck, he worked in the market for one of the fish sellers. He carried tubs of fresh fish from the delivery vans to the businessman’s stalls in the market. “After Sendong, not too many people wanted to eat fish. People were worried that the fish being sold in t he markets might have tasted and even eaten bodies of people who died in the f loods. The businessman

I worked for closed shop, and all of us, his workers, were rendered jobless,” he explained. The family now mostly relies on donations and the assistance of relatives who still have money to spare and lend. While grateful for the donations of instant noodle packets and canned goods like tuna, sardines and the occasional tinned meatloaf, the Diazes are justifiably worried that the almost unchanging diet is bad for their little boy. Whenever they can afford to, they buy vegetables like kangkong (water spinach) and malunggay (moringa) to supplement the rice rations they receive from humanitarian relief organizations. They are able to buy meat and fish only occasionally, and always with borrowed money. Yamcy gestured to the soil in the backyard of their small house. “I want to clear this area and plant vegetables here. Tomatoes, eggplant, beans are very easy to grow. If we had seedlings, my wife and I as well as our neighbors could begin planting small crops for our own consumption,” he said. Johnamae, in the meantime, wistfully wants to reopen a store? “I used to run a small store before Sendong. Everything in the store disappeared in the flood, and for a while I really felt bad about it. Maybe one day when Yamcy has found stable work I could start over again,” she said.

Food and cash for work programs When asked if the local and national governments have done anything to help the residents of Purok 12, Yamcy ruefully shook his head. He said he was not really aware of any efforts the government was doing. “There was a ‘food for work’ program and another called ‘cash for work,’ but they didn’t last long and not everybody was given opportunities to participate. It was a three to five day-scheme, I was told. Work for three or five days and be paid P200 ($5) every day, or get food packages. The problem was each man was only allowed to register with the program once and that was it,” he said. In a report in the Philippine Information Agency dated February 16, it was stated that the Department of Labor and Employment implemented the emergency employment program Yamcy described. The program was first implemented on February 6, with each worker being given P215 ($ 5.12) per day for 15 working days. They were provided with working tools like shovels, rakes, and wheelbarrows which were to be returned after the completion of the clean-up operations in the evacuation centers and public areas. The local government admitted that there were problems with the clean up of the dirt, mud and garbage

Before Sendong, he worked as a security guard, but since the typhoon, he has been unemployed. He applied for the cash for work program. He said he was given P250 ($5.95) a day for 10 days. In the food for work program, he heard that people were give a half sack of rice for five days of work. “That was the only catch — a person can only work once for the program and that was it. I suppose it’s a fair enough deal, but I’ve heard that the Iligan local government received so many cash donations so one can’t help but wonder where all the money has gone. I don’t think the local government could have used up billions and billions of donations in just a few months,” he said.

Codinera, UE basketball team plays in Araw ng Dabaw tourney DAVAO City––Coach Jerry Codiñera is now in Davao City with his UE five to represent the Royal Mandaya Hotel in the 75th Araw ng Dabaw basketball tournament which opened Tuesday at the Almendras gym. “My UE line-up is a mixture of my team A and B because I had to leave some of my players who had problems with t heir academics,” s aid Codiñera, whose father Filomeno is also a legendary national softball and baseball coach. The 6-fo ot-6 C o diñera became the youngest member, at 17, of the RP men’s basketball team under coach Ron Jacobs before turning pro in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA). Meanwhile, Codinera had earlier wanted to get Renzar Henry Asilum of Davao City to play for his University of the East Red Warriors basketball team. In fact, Codiñera already had a verbal agree-

ment with Asilum’s father Henry. But the Asilums had changed their mind and instead the peppery point guard who played for the Philippines Under 17 basketball team in the 2011 SEABA Under 16 opted to suit up for the University of the Philippines Maroons. “Ganun talaga eh, minsan meron ganun sa basketball. Nagka shake hands na kayo pero mag-iiba pa rin ng isip (It’s normal in basketball. You have already shook hands but sometime mind changes),” Codiñera told a sports forum at the Royal Mandaya Hotel here. Henry Asilum is coaching the RMH Davao Youth Selection composed most-

The RMH Red Warriors will also be reinforced by former PBA cagers Chris Calaguio and Dondon Camaso and 6-foo-8 import Charles Mamie. PBA veteran and Davao-born John Ferriols of B-Meg might also play for RMH, according to team owner Glenn Escandor. “Wala naman problema sa amin sa pag adjust sa system sa team (We don’t have problems in adjusting the system with the team). We can provide t he veteran’s role and guide the young ones,” said Calaguio, who only retired last 2010. Camaso, on the other hand, said that they will share their experience on their young teammates.

Codiñera said he has no problem with Mamie, who grew up in Manchester, England, since he had joined the practice of the Warriors in Manila for three months. “Coach Jerry is like a brother to me also,” Mamie said. Codiñera said he will still try to get more players from Davao or Mindanao to beef up his squad. The RMH-UE Red Warriors was still playing against the Phoenix Petroleum represented by the San Sebastian College Stags as of press time. Also competing in the four-day league sanctioned by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas Mindanao Cluster B under Regino “Boy” Cua are the Montana Pawnshop Davao and Goldstar Hardware Davao. “We will just have to fight and play our best to them,” said Codiñera, who is married to a Dabawenya.

for justice.” In an interview with Ted Failon of TV Patrol, Sister Flory said that she’s willing to testify at the impeachment trial of Corona. She said that the Coronas could keep the money, all she wanted is to see justice done. What goes around… Well, Ana and Sister Flory might finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Last March 12, Corona’s lawyers started their presentation of Corona’s defense. But Corona’s defense panel has a dilemma. For Corona to avoid culpability, his defense lawyers have to prove that the P11 million “cash advance” and the P32.6 million he withdrew from PSBank on December 12, 2011 does not belong to him. If so, then Corona would have to return the monies to the rightful owners, the heirs of the Basa-Guidote clan. Indeed, Ana might fulfill her deathbed promise to her father and Sister Flory might get her birthday wish granted. And how about Corona? One thing for sure, he might be able to get away with betrayal of public trust but he can’t escape from the Law of Karma. As someone once said, “Nothing escapes the Law of Karma. You get from the world what you give to the world.” Yes, what goes around comes around. -------(PerryDiaz@gmail.com)

That will surely bring in the tourists, local or foreign. -oooREMOVE POWER OF LGUs TO DEMOLISH, PNOY URGED: Then, also, the government should address the complaints brought to the United Nations by Filipino human rights organizations which say that violent demolitions and arbitrary detentions have increased all the more during the Aquino presidency. President Aquino should lead in the drive against demolitions and detentions, by pushing legislation to remedy the problems. One bill he should insist on is the amendment of the Local Government Code of 1991 (Republic Act 7160) to remove a provision that allows city and municipal officials to carry out demolitions even without court orders. Then, the other one is an amendment of the Revised Penal Code to make illegal arrests and detentions a heinous crime, punishable with life imprisonment and immediate dismissal.

Fare... from page 1

Iway told InterAksyon. com, the news portal of TV-5. Iway said the fare hike will apply to all regions except Region 12, which did

not seek a fare adjustment. He said there was no need for a fare matrix because the 50-centavo hike is just an “add-on.” There will be no additional charge for every kilometer after the first five kilometers. Iway added that the provisional fare hike will be in effect while the LTFRB deliberates on the “main” petition for a P2 fare hike. In a radio interview, Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) Secretary Manuel Roxas II said: “Ang report ni LTFRB Chairman [Jaime] Jacob, pinagpasyahan ng LTFRB na 50 centavos onetime sa unang sakay ang dagdag na maaaring ipataw ng jeep drivers.” Earlier, LTFRB spokesperson Sonia del Mundo said the LTFRB considers a petition to hike jeepney fares as “urgent.” However, Del Mundo said a petition for a P2 increase to the current P8 minimum fare for jeepneys is still undergoing public hearings and consultations. Among the transport groups that sought a 50-centavo provisional fare hike were: • Federation of Jeepney Operators and Drivers Association of the Philippines (Fejodap) • Alliance of C oncerned Transport Operators (ACTO) • Pangkalahatang Sanggunian Manila and Suburbs Drivers Association (Pasang Masda) • 1-Utak • Liga ng Transportasyon at Opereytors sa Pilipinas (LTOP) They said they could no longer cope with the rising prices of fuel and spare parts. Some transport

groups have also held protests to press for an increase in fares. He said, however, that jeepneys will be required to roll back the minimum fare once diesel prices go back to P45 per liter. Meanwhile, the weekly average oil price of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) continued to increase last week, rising to 123.74 U.S. dollars per barrel, the Vienna-based cartel said Monday. OPEC oil prices have risen for six consecutive weeks since mid-February, partly due to volatility in Iran and much of the Middle East. It is said one of the major topics discussed between British Prime Minister David Cameron and U.S. President Barack Obama during a recent meeting at the White House was the need to release strategic petroleum reserves to stabilize oil prices.

The International Energy Agency said the global economic outlook this year is expected to be weak.
