Mrs. Cynthia Villar reacted regarding Risa Hontiveros’ continued statements/pronouncements about the Villaroyo issue and said “Senator Manny Villar and I have moved on from the 2010 campaign. I just want to inform Risa Hontiveros that I stood by my record that I voted with her for the impeachment of Former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo in 2005. I am enclosing here the records of Congress (votes results on PGMA’s impeachment). In fact, I lost my pork barrel barrel because of that vote. Senator Manny Villar and I didn’t ask any favor and didn’t have the need to ask any favor from former president GMA. Thus, tagging or labeling us as ‘Villaroyo’ is not true. We live very simple lives and our public life is public service.” Mrs. Cynthia Villar recently filed her COC as Senator under LP party. PHOTOS BY PJAMES TREMEDAL AND NEP BATOLENO

A

number of theories on empowerment have taken the time to evolve to make it a very substantive word. There is no doubt that the concept of empowerment has assumed an increasing interest to researchers, practitioners and even to the citizens. A very simple way of understanding empowerment is to equate it with increased awareness and increased control of one’s life. One can surmise that the opposite of empowerment is powerlessness which according to Keiffer (1984) when viewed at the individual level can be seen as the expectation of the person that his/her own actions will be ineffective in influencing the outcome of life events.

What has this to do with civil registration? If we were to take a look at the 2010 Census of Population and Housing, we would see that Northern Mindanao recorded 4,297,323 population and a growth rate of 2.14 since the last two decades. This implies that there is a corresponding growing need for more efforts to raise the level of awareness among the people to register the vital events of their lives - births, deaths, fetal deaths, marriages, and all such events that have something to do with an

When Statistics Speak Salvador A. Aves, Ph.D, DM individual’s entrance and departure from life together with the changes in civil status that may occur to a person during his lifetime. Two decades and three years ago, the NSO-UNICEF Multi Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) revealed that of the 1999 five million or 7 percent of the 75 million Filipinos living in the country were not registered with the Local Civil Registrars. This was also supported by the CENSUS 2000 report which indicated that three out of ten Filipino children under the age of five did not have birth certificates. It may be recalled that in 1993, the Barangay Civil Registration System (BCRS) was introduced in Region 10 to improve the low level of civil registration with the belief that if civil registration is conveyed to the barangay level , the recognized constraints (such as topographical features which made it difficult for people especially the indigenous people to travel to the town center just to have vital events registered) will be countered. The idea of BCRS was conceived largely due to the concern of this author for the less privileged and deprived sector of the populace, the indigenous peoples. It was designed to be a humble contribution and vehicle

in instituting change that could propel them towards the mainstream of Philippine society while protecting their distinct cultural practices and traditions as guaranteed by the Constitution at the same time. The objective of the project is to include IPs and Muslims in the Civil Registration System; thus, including them in the privileges that complement those who are registered. BCRS was first introduced in Bukidnon and Agusan del Sur as a flagship project of Region 10 which later on became a viable model in improving the civil registration in the country. BCRS is basically a process of facilitating the registration of vital events at the barangay level through the barangay LGUs with the Barangay Secretary as the Focal Person. Putting BCRS into action has actualized the empowerment of the barangays, and has given invisible children who had been deprived of their right to a name their identity through birth registration. Thus, it is the fervent hope of the organizers of the 5th BCRS Regional Conference that this undertaking will lead the way ahead to a more empowered and more mobilized barangays. After all, “Sa Barangay Nagsisimula Ang Pagbabago.”

Playing the China card By BENJIE OLIVEROS of Bulatlat.com A FEW DAYS AGO, A PHOTO OF CHINA’S first aircraft carrier was published on the front page of a major daily. There appears to be no other reason for China’s aircraft carrier to merit the front page but the much-reported tension between the Philippines and China over the Scarborough shoal and Spratly islands, as well as reports that tend to portray China as the bully of the region. The question is: Does China have the intention and capacity of projecting itself as a power in the region? Is it a real challenge not only to small countries like the Philippines and Vietnam but to powerful countries as well, such as Japan and most especially, the US? Is the US justified in increasing its presence in the region and is the Aquino government right in requesting the US to do so and opening up the country to more frequent stationing and rotation (euphemistically called as “visits”) of battleships, submarines and a larger contingent of US troops? Well, Dr. PaoYu Ching, PhD in Economics, a progressive political economist, does not think so. This was the main topic of the talk Dr. Pao Yu Chinggave in a recent forum with the title

US Rebalancing in Asia and the Pacific and its effect on China and the Philippines, which was sponsored by Bayan recently. First of all, she said, China could not match the military weaponry of the US. It does not even have the aircraft that could land on this aircraft carrier, which, by the way, is a refurbished one bought from the Ukraine. Thus, for China, she said, it is basically just a big boat. And besides, she said, China has only 3,000 aircraft, 2,900 of which are outdated. On the other hand, the US, she said, has 12 aircraft carriers and 3,000 modern fighter jets. The US, she said, will, in the near future, have the nuclear capability to destroy all the other countries’ nuclear arsenal just with its first strike. Also, China’s annual military expenditure of $40 billion is a mere one-tenth of what the US is spending, which is at $400 billion annually. Second, she said, China’s government is unstable because the country is being battered by a crisis economically and politically. The Chinese government, she said, is under tremendous pressure domestically because the world economic

Raise your standard of living THINK a minute. You’ve heard of people who try to raise their standard of living at almost any cost. They’ll go without many things to get a higher education, hoping it will later get them a higher-paying job and career. Some even move their family to another country to raise their standard of living. Still others will only let their children marry someone whose standard of living is the same or higher than theirs. Many of us spend much of our life working to raise our standard of living in terms of money and status. Then when we finally reach the standard of living we want, we still have to work hard to make sure we stay there! But there are people whose standard of living

What kind of marriage and family do you have? What kind of friends? There are many people who have heaps of money and status, but they have a low standard of living, because of the low level of their own personal character. T h e y ’r e d i s h o n e s t , greedy, competitive, and

jealous of what other people have. They gossip and use people to get what they want. They don’t have much love and forgiveness in their heart for people who wrong and hurt them.

This is why our Maker is the only One Who can give us the power, honesty, and love we need to raise our standard of living by raising the level of our character. It’s only when we ask Jesus Christ to start changing us that we can start enjoying a truly high standard of living. So why not ask Jesus to take complete charge of your heart and way of living? It’s only then you can start climbing the ladder of REAL success and satisfaction for the rest of your life. Just Think a Minute.

Who wants to stay as provincial governor?

THE ISSUE now is why Oscar Moreno is sticking it out at the provincial Capitol. Technically, Moreno has abdicated the gubernatorial post. There are a number of reasons to prove Moreno has literally abandoned his post at the provincial Capitol. First, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) already attested that Moreno is already a resident of Cagayan de Oro City. Second, Moreno has officially Cris Diaz filed certificate of candidacy to run for Mayor in Cagayan de Oro City. PLAYING | page 5 Why is he staying at the provincial Capitol is subject of speculations. One of the most popular opinions is that Moreno is holding on as governor for obvious reasons. He wants to use the privileges of the governor’s office to mount a www.mindanaodailybalita.com political campaign in Cagayan de Oro City. The provincial Capitol could provide Moreno the necessary logistics in sustaining political campaign.

prime factor in waging a political campaign. Without, or the lack of it, means a failed political campaign. The provincial governor enjoys the privilege of getting cash advance. On top of the cash advance, the governor has also discretionary fund. Lastly, the governor has millions of intelligence fund where expenditures are not subject to stringent auditing. Two years ago, the provincial board approved about P28 million intelligence funds for the office of the provincial governor. Moreno himself submitted the amount for inclusion to the province annual budget. The issue on intelligence fund caused uproar in the community. The Commission on Audit accused Moreno of failing to account more or less P29 million cash advance in 2010. Moreno’s administrative officer submitted an itemized report to COA Manila justifying the expenses of the unaccounted P29 million cash advance. They charged the expenses under ‘intelligence fund.’ Now, Moreno’s intention to fight ‘tooth and nail’ to stay as governor is as clear as crystal. The vice governor who should now serve as ‘governor,’ is abashedly mocked. Perhaps, the Vice Governor allowed himself to be a laughing stock because he is a weakling and ignorant of the procedure. Would the people of Misamis Oriental allow a future governor who could not even defend his right for the post? React: crisguardian@yahoo.com

percent annually due to land use conversion and pollution. The Chinese gover nment, she s aid, would have wanted to privatize the remaining state industries, as well as land, if not for t he growing resistance of the masses. With the state China is in, it could not be a major economic power, much less a military power in the region. Third is the economic relationship between China and the US. The US is still China’s main export destination. Twenty-one of China’s 28 industries are controlled by foreign monopoly capitalists. The five largest multinational corporations, including that of the US, control these 21 industries. And China is dependent on US capital and technology. Fo r t h e U S , C h i n a is still the main go-to country for work that its companies sub-contract to exploit China’s cheap labor. China is the biggest debtor country of the US because the latter is unable to pay for its exports from China. And it is also a major destination of US investments. So if the probability of a US-China conflict is very remote, why is the US blowing up the possibility of China being a threat to its hegemony? Dr. Pao Yu Ching believes that the US is creating the hype of a Chinese threat

to justify its intent to realign its forces toward and project its military might in the Asia-Pacific region; China, on the other hand, is making a show of asserting its claim over Scarborough shoal and Spratly islands to show to t he Chines e p e ople that it is doing something to assert China’s interest, especially after it has practically handed over 21 of its 28 major industries to multinational corporations.

Dr. Pao Yu Ching has made a ver y incisive analysis of China and its relations wit h t he US. With the data and information Dr. Pao Yu Ching provided, it is indeed implausible for China to challenge the US. It has neither the capability nor the reason to challenge the US when it is dependent on US technology, capital and market.

The US also has no reason to provoke an armed conflict with China. Aside from the fact that China is its biggest source of cheap labor, and its biggest debtor, and that a lot of US multinational companies have factories in China, it has no reason to do so. The Chinese government has essentially turned its back on its socialist path, has fully opened up

The protest in writing must be filed within thirty (30) days from payment of the tax to the Provincial Treasurer who shall decide the protest within sixty (60%) days from receipt. Fifty percent (50%) of the tax paid under protest shall be held in trust by the Provincial Treasurer. The other fifty (50%) percent shall form part of the proceeds to be distributed in accordance with SEC 2.G.01 of this Code. In the event that the protest is finally decided in favor of the taxpayer the amount or portion of the tax protested shall be refunded to the protestant, or applied as tax credit against his existing or future tax liability. In the event that the protest is denied or upon the lapse of the sixty-day (60) period prescribed in subparagraph (a) the taxpayer may, within sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of the written notice of assessment, appeal to the Provincial Board of Assessment Appeals by filing a petition under oath in the standard form prescribed therefore, together with copies of the tax declaration and such affidavits or documents in support of the appeal.

SEC. 2.F.09 Repayment of Excessive Collections. When an assessment of basic real property tax, or any other tax levied under this Chapter is found to be illegal or erroneous and the tax is accordingly reduced or adjusted, the taxpayer may file a written claim for refund or credit for taxes and interest with the Provincial Treasurer within two (2) years from the date the taxpayer is entitled to such reduction or adjustment. The Provincial Treasurer shall decide the claim for tax refund or credit within sixty (60) days from receipt thereof.

SEC. 2.F.10 Notice of Delinquency in the Payment of Real Property Tax. a)

b)

When the real property tax or any other tax imposed under this chapter becomes delinquent, the Provincial Treasurer through the Municipal Treasurer shall immediately cause a notice of the delinquency to be posted at the main entrance of the Municipal Hall and in a publicly accessible and conspicuous place in each barangay. The notice of delinquency shall also be published once a week for two (2) consecutive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation in the municipality. Such notice shall specify the date upon which the tax became delinquent and shall state that personal property may be distrained to effect payment. It shall likewise state that at any time before the distraint of personal property, payment of tax with surcharges, interest and penalties may be made in accordance with Sec.2.F.06 of this code, and unless the tax, surcharges and penalties are paid before the expiration of the year for which the tax is due, except when the notice of assessment or special levy is contested administratively or judicially, the delinquent real property will be sold at public auction, and the title to the property will be vested in the purchaser, subject however, to the right of the delinquent owner of the property or any person having legal interest therein to redeem the property within one (1) year from the date of sale.

SEC. 2.F.11 Remedies for the Collection of Real Property Tax. For the collection of the basic real property tax and any other tax levied under this Chapter, the Province may avail of the remedies by administrative action through levy on real property and sale of real property by public auction or by judicial action. The judicial remedy is availed of in the court of appropriate jurisdiction. These remedies are cumulative, simultaneous and unconditional, that is, any or all of the remedies or combination thereof may be resorted to and the use or non-use of one remedy shall not be a bar against the institution of the others. Formal demand for the payment of the delinquent taxes and penalties due is not a prerequisite to such remedies. The notice of delinquency required in Sec.2.F.10 hereof shall be sufficient for the purpose. SEC. 2.F.12 Provincial Government’s Lien. The basic real property tax and any other tax levied under this Chapter, constitutes a lien on the property subject to tax, superior to all liens, charges or encumbrances in favor of any person, irrespective of the owner or possessor thereof, enforceable by administrative or judicial action, and may only be extinguished upon payment of the tax and the related interests and expenses. SEC. 2.F.13 Levy on Real Property. After the expiration of the time required to pay the basic real property tax or any other tax levied under this Chapter, real property subject to such tax may be levied upon through the issuance of a warrant on or before, or simultaneously with the institution of the civil action for the collection of the delinquent tax.
