Talisayan hosts first agro trade fair in eastern Misor Text and photos by GERRY L. GORIT, Photo-journalist

MISAMIS Oriental––For the first time in Talisayan town and in the entire first congressional district of Misamis Oriental, a business forum and trade fair for the farmers of the province is being held this week.

Misamis Oriental 1st District Rep. Peter Unabia delivers an inspirational message at the opening of the 1st East Misor Business Forum and Trade Fair at the Talisayan Public Plaza. With the congressman on stage are Talisayan Vice Mayor Rommel Maslog, Talisayan Mayor Catherine Ifurung, Sugbongcogon Vice Mayor Mildred Lagbas-Mandigo, and officials of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources.

The 1st East Misor Business Forum and Trade Fair opened Monday at the public plaza of Talisayan with a program graced by Misamis Oriental 1st District Rep. Peter M. Unabia, who is spearheading the event in partnership with the municipal government of Talisayan led by Mayor Catherine G. Ifurung and Vice Mayor Rommel C. Maslog. Rep. Unabia, vice chairman of the committee on agriculture in Congress, said the event is being held in Talisayan because this town is in the center of the first congressional district of the province in between Magsaysay and Balingasag, and that the leadership of the municipal government

has shown full support for the activity since it was planned some six months earlier. He said Talisayan also has programs in line with his thrust for agricultural development such as organic farming. The trade fair is open to the public and will run until Friday with several booths displaying the agricultural products of the farmers. The vice mayor of Talisayan said the five-day event is focused on supporting the farmers with business matching sessions, distribution of farm equipment and several forums covering various production techniques.

Assassins ambush tribal leader; 12-year-old son died By AL JACINTO, Regional editor-Zamboanga

PAGADIAN City––Unidentified gunmen ambushed a tribal leader and his son on Monday in the southern Philippine province of Zamboanga del Sur, an anti-mining group said. The Alyansa Tigil Mina (ATM) said the attack killed Jordan Manda, a 12-year old son of Timuay Locenio Manda, who was also wounded in the ambush that occurred near the village of Matin-ao in Bayog town. It said Manda, a Subanon leader, was heading to school with his son on a motorcycle when gunmen ambushed them at around 7.20 a.m. just 5 kilometers away from their house. No individual or group claimed responsibility for the ambush. “Timuay Manda’s 12year old son, Jordan Manda, suffered a fatal wound on his back and instantly killing him. While Timuay Manda suffered minor wounds and is now out of danger,” the ATM said in a statement sent to the Mindanao Examiner. The 1st Infantry Division has confirmed the attack and condemned the killing of the boy and the attempt on the life of Manda. Maj . G e n . R i c ard o

Rainier Cruz III, the regional army commander, has deployed soldiers to help the local police hunt down the assailants, according to Capt. Albert Caber, an army spokesman. “General Cruz has condemned the attack and ordered troops to help the police in tracking down the attackers. We are supporting police investigation to give justice to the murder of the boy and the attempt on the life of tribal leader Manda,” Caber told the Mindanao Examiner. The young Manda was being groomed by his clan to be a tribal leader. Manda is also the village chieftain of Conacon and is a leading figure in the campaign of indigenous people in claiming and protecting their ancestral domain in the past decade. “In my effort to assert our rights and to protect our people and ancestral domain, my beloved son was sacrificed. It is very painful and I thirst for justice. I vow to continue my struggle in order not to make my son’s death in vain. I need your support in this most trying time of my life as a father and a leader,” ATM quoting

Manda’s text message to the group, said. ATM said Manda’s cousin, Timuay Giovanni Umbang, who was also fighting for their ancestral rights, was also assassinated in 2002, according to ATM, adding both leaders had questioned the entry of logging and mining firms in their ancestral domain without the so-called Free Prior and Informed Consent as required under national and international laws. It said Manda has been receiving death threats the last three years. The anti-mining group said at present, the ancestral domain of the Subanon’s in Bayog town has 8 mining permit applications and that 3 of them were granted Mineral Production Sharing Agreements and an exploration permit - and numerous illegal small-scale mining operations. Just last month, Manda led a group of tribal leaders from Bayog and neighboring ancestral domains in calling for a moratorium of all forms of mining in their ancestral domains until they have been issued Certificate of Ancestral AMBUSH/PAGE 9

‘Indecent political proposals’ LIKE wild fire, talks of Cong. Peter Unabia’s sudden party shift caught the political pundits flat footed. However, for those who understand how the political weather moves, Unabia’s sudden defection was not surprising. Like Gov. Oscar Moreno’s plight from the province to Cagayan de Oro, Unabia’s ‘abandonment’ of Padayon Pilipino was no big deal. There were propositions that the administration’s Liberal Party (LP) Cris Diaz pressured Unabia to join LP in respond to an ‘indecent business proposal.’ Unabia have no choice else, his multi-million business in the chicken industry would be imperiled. Unabia might have accepted the proposition in consideration of Ruthie Guingona’s withdrawal to run for Congress in Misamis Oriental’s First District. Unabia is the incumbent district Congressman of Misamis Oriental. Since last year, talks were persistent that Ruthie Guingona, now serving her last term as city mayor of Gingoog City, would run for Congress next year. Of course, it follows that Ruthie would be running under LP since her son Sen. Teofisto Guingona, Jr. is currently aligned with LP. Guingona’s plan to run for Congress, threatens Unabia who would be running, first time, for reelection in Congress. If and when, the Guingonas’ would be Unabia’s stumbling block which the latter would not want to happen. Although a neophyte, Unabia now appeared to have learned fast the knitty gritty in politics. For Unabia, political survival is above all other considerations. Perhaps, he is right. With the Liberal Party telescoping the 2016 presidential elections, the 2013 local elections would jump-start its move to entrench its grip of the country’s political geography. It (LP) understands that the local political playground is its backbone. No wonder, in the absence of a strong LP presence in Misamis Oriental in the 2010 elections, it is scouring the province’s political extremities for more follower-supporters. Unabia is the first victim of LP’s grand design albeit political harassment in Misamis Oriental. Political observers elsewhere in the country have long foreseen this scenario. Now, the jigsaw puzzle starts to fall to its places. Thus, with Sec. Mar Roxas at the helm of the local government, the graft court and high court in the eyes of the administration, the ‘Sword of Damocles’ evidently hangs on whoever the next political prey.

Giluto sa kaugalingong mantika YUP! That’s essentially what’s happening to us when we start riding the bandwagon trumpeting the Philippines as the next Tiger Economy of Asia. For instance, carefully read between the lines of this recent New York Times article on the Philippines by reporter Floyd Whaley, about the “Youthful Populace” that has ostensibly helped make the e Philippines “an Economic Bright Spot in Asia.” Whaley cites the country’s macro-indicators such as its $70 billion reserves and lower interest payments on its debt after recent credot rating upgrades like Standard & Poor’s July 4 level up to just below investment grade, the highest rating for

Editorial the country since 2003, an outlook shared by HSBC in Hong Kong. The Philippine stock market closed at a record high after the recent S. & P. rating upgrade, and the peso reached a four-year high against the dollar at about the same time. From the 44th-largest economy in the world today, HSBC estimates it can become the 16th biggest by 2050. The country’s gross domestic product grew 6.4 percent in the first quarter and 5.9 percent in the second quarter of 2012. Last year, the economy grew only 3.4 percent for the same period. Industry

rebounded to 4.6 percent from a contraction of 1.4 percent last year and construction 10 percent after a 16.1 percent drop last year. HSBC Hong Kong said the Philippines benefited from increased government efficiency and revenue collection, and high profile moves to address corruption such as the recent impeachment of Chief Justice Renato Corona and the arrest of former president Gloria Arroyo on graft charges. They say it’s the young urban workers who are giving the country a much needed lift as a result of the high population growth rate now comprises 61 percent of the Philippine work force aged between 15-64 and growing, in contrast to

many of its Asian neighbors with aging populations. In fact, economic analysts say because the work force continues growing, wages will remain “competitive”, a euphemism for “cheap and affordable”. Just recently, the New York Post said the country overtook India as the Call Center Capital of the world last year. The Board of Investments says offshore call centers employed 683,000 Filipinos in 2011 and generated about $11 billion in revenue, up 24 percent from last year. The government hopes it can generate $25 billion in revenue by 2016. Reason? Filipinos speak “American English” vs. the Indian’s EDITORIAL/PAGE 9

Going through hot water THINK a minute. “A tea bag isn’t worth mu ch u nt i l it’s b e e n through some hot water.” There’s a saying in boxing: “Everybody’s got a plan—until they’ve been hit!” Sooner or later, life is going to hit and knock you down. Whether you get back up or not is your choice. Almost all people’s successes are built on their former failures. A very successful man was asked if he had ever failed. He answered: “Only in life.” The fact is, even after we’ve been knocked down we can still use our past mistakes and failures to build a bridge to our suc-

A two-digit inflation rate registered in Camiguin A FREQUENT QUESTION raised by consumers is “how much would a specified amount of money at a certain period of time be worth today?” If you would be looking at price increases on the same basket of goods, even for just a short period of time, do you take it as enough warning of a coming periods of inflation? Indeed, consumers and investors consider inflation as an economic phenomenon that has an increasing change in the price of goods and services. Price inflation is typically measured using the Consumer Price Index (CPI .which takes into consideration a constant basket of goods. It is the National Statistics Office that generates the CPI. Accordingly, NSO had revised last June the base year from 2000 to 2006

When Statistics Speak Salvador A. Aves, Ph.D, DM including the weights for the consumer price index (CPI) to ensure that the key measure reflects the current situation. As reported by the agency, “as household expenditure patterns vary (they tend to spend less on some items and more on others), weights are used to ensure that the CPI reflects the relative importance of each item or group of items in the market basket. The weights are expressed as a proportion of household expenditure for an item to the total national expen-

diture.” According to the latest results of the Consumer Price Index (CPI) Survey conducted by the National Statistics Office, the Philippine’s annual headline inflation rate increased to 3.2 percent in July 2012 from 2.8 percent in June 2011. This was due to higher annual increments registered in all the commodity groups except those in clothing and footwear, health, transport, and education indices. Inflation a year ago was 4.9 percent.

On the other hand, inflation in the National Capital Region (NCR) jumped to 3.1 percent in July from 2.2 percent in June. Except in clothing and footwear, health, transport, communication, and education indices, all the commodity groups posted higher annual gains. Annual inflation in areas outside NCR grew 3.2 percent in July from 3.0 percent in June. It resulted from higher annual upticks in the indices of food and non-alcoholic beverages; housing, water, electricity, gas, and other fuels; furnishing, household equipment and routine maintenance of the house; and recreation and culture. Moreover, the country’s month-on-month inflation decelerated to 0.3 percent in July from 0.5 percent in June. Price INFLATION/PAGE 9

R. Zubiri Jr. Zubiri who presided over the Wednesday’s regular session was astounded to note of road concreting projects that were completed in the year 2010 which have now so many cracks. “How can you convince me that the roads you construct will stay for 20 years, when longitudinal cracks and splinters are evidently seen,” Zubiri asked. District Engineer Rey Peter Gille of Bukidnon’s first engineering district

explained that the bulk of heavy loaded trucks plying the Sayre Highway attributed to the precipitated damaged of the newlycompleted project which the vice governor refused to accept due to its increased thickness on concrete pavements. Asked as to how the projects were bid out and awarded to contractors, Acting District Engineer Honorato Saldua of Bukidnon’s third engineering district replied that the projects cost more than P50 million and that is within the ceiling of the Regional Office. Berba, who chaired the Bid and Awards Committee (BAC) of the regional office, clarified that proper procedures in bidding stipulated in Republic Act 9184 is strictly adhered to. Engr.

PNP exec denies ‘kutong’ charges in North Cotabato KIDAPAWAN CITY-– An official of the Philippine National Police (PNP) in North Cotabato has denied the allegations made by the communist guerillas that the Highway Patrol Group (HPG), formerly Traffic Management Group, is involved in ‘massive’ highway ‘extortion’. Sr. Supt. Cornelio Salinas, provincial director of the Cotabato PNP, said operatives of the HPG are tasked to check and monitor stolen motorcycles and carnapped vehicles plying along the Cotabato-Davao highway. Since July, the PNP has monitored several motorcycle theft incidents in several towns in the province, reports said. In Kidapawan City, four motorcycles parked in a subdivision were stolen by still unidentified suspects, two of which were recovered the next day, reports said. Around 4:30 a.m., Friday, a blue Honda 125 motorcycle owned by Wilmer Benimerito, an operative of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Team (CIDT) in North Cotabato, which was parked in front of their house at barangay Lanao here was stolen by unknown thieves. The town of Makilala, where the attack of the NPA happened, has also several cases of motorcycle theft incidents recorded since July. “The primary task of the highway patrol policemen is to check whether the vehicles plying this route have documents or are not stolen. These cops are not combatants so why attack them?” said Salinas. The daylight attack killed two HPG members identified as PO1 Raul Pablo and PO3 Rufino Sumugat and wounded four others, three of them civilians, reports said.

Davao City-Bitung RORO service Villar gives premium to eyed to start next year, says official giving people livelihood By PAT SAMONTE

By BEN D. ARCHE DAVAO City – The roll-on/ roll-off (RORO) service between Davao City and Bitung in Indonesia is seen to be operational early next year after a ferry operator signified interest to ply the route. Marc C. Ayes, Research, Education and Institutional Development (REID) Foundation deputy team leader said that the Cebu-based Super Shuttle Ferry will be the first local-based shipper to provide the service. “We are hoping to have a better service on shipping commercial goods from Davao City to Bitung and vice-versa,” Ayes said. The RORO service will reduce the transport costs by 10 percent compared to shipping the commodities through wooden hauled vessels, Ayes said adding that the transportation time

will also be narrowed to one or one-and-a-half days from the usual two to three days. Bitung is about 350 nautical miles away from Davao City. Within this month, Ayes said local shippers, representatives from government and private sectors, and other stakeholders will

meet in Bitung to talk the RORO service. Expected to participate in the meeting are the Bitung and Manado shippers, RORO operators, customs and port officials and the Bitung Governor. Some of the topics to be discussed include the frequency of service, customs clearances, port fees, freight

fees, the type of cargo that should be involved in the RORO service and the identification of shippers that would truly service the route. Following the finalization of the plan, a memorandum of understanding will be signed by November during the Davao Investment Conference this year.

KITCHARAO, AGUSAN DEL NORTE – Former Congresswoman Cynthia A. Villar has committed to put up a composting facility here and help provide Kitcharaonons livelihood. Villar made the promise during the celebration of the 49th Araw ng Kitcharao where she was guest of onor. She was introduced by Agusan del Norte Governor Erlpe John M. Amante, Mayor Jenr y Montante and Vice-Mayor Aristotle Montante, who announced their full support for her candidacy as senator in next year’s election and urged the people to do the same. During Villar’s visit to Bislig City earlier, Surigao del Sur Governor Johnny Pimentel and other officials said they will help the former congresswoman in the 2013 political exercise in

support of her advocacies. Villar observed that being a predominant ly agricultural community, Kitcharao could very well benefit from a composting facility which will convert garbage into organic fertilizers. Easily available organic fertilizer will surely make the farmers happy in terms of cost and its being environment-friendly, she said. Villar said as a threeterm legislator representing Las Piñas City, she has been active, until the present, in training and helping people earn income through livelihood projects. Through her family-owned Villar Foundation, her livelihood advocacy in Las Piñas City has expanded not only in Metro-Manila and Luzon but also in the Visayas and Mindanao.

Lanao Norte town folks plant 40,000 seedlings By SONNY SUDARIA TUBOD, Lanao del Norte – Residents and workers of this town recently planted 40,000 seedlings at Mount Sigayan here on August 25, 2012 to show their support to President Aquino’s National Greening Program. The activity which included climbing the area attracted some 500 participants composed of students, provincial and municipal employees, provincial police force, military troops, barangay officials, local mountaineers, youth volunteers and members of civic organizations. Itwas learned that PNoy’s National Greening Program aims to plant 1.5 billion trees in about 1.5 million hectares by 2016. President Benigno S. Aquino III issued Executive Order No. 26 on Feb-

ruary, this year, which implements the National Greening Program as a government priority. The program is aimed to showcase the national government’s responses to poverty prolems; and to promote food security, environmental stability and biodiversity conservation. The project is also hoped to enhance climate change mitigation and adaptation. The tree-planting activity which highlighted the climb was conducted at Brgy. Upper Koreo, in the coastal town of Sultan Naga Dimaporo (SND). Planted in designated sites inside the 100 hectares identified by the local DENR for reforestation, were 40,000 seedlings of various tree species . Among tree species planted were narra, falcata, ma-

hogany, lawaan, bagtikan, and banuyo. The event was spearheaded by DENR – Kolambugan and strongly supported by former congressman Abdullah Dimaporo and Lanao del Norte LGU through its Environment and National Resources Office (ENRO). “We want our future children to enjoy a beautiful and healthy environment. Together we can help reverse the negative effects of global warming”, Dimaporo said. The tree-planting activity was also attended by Ramon Serapio (Environment and National Resources Officer), Lt. Col. Romulo Manuel (35th Infantry Battalion), and local DENR officials. A similar activity was also held on September 1, this year.

Koko pushes ‘hating-kapatid’ on taxes by LGUs, nat’l gov’t Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III, PDP Laban President, rallied support for his bill which seeks to provide local government units (LGUs) a share from all the taxes and revenues collected by the entire national government. In a speech before officials and employees of the City of Parañaque, Pimentel lamented that LGUs get only a share of the taxes collected by the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) even if the Constitution

itself states that LGUs must have a share “in the national taxes”. To rectify this, Pimentel said he filed Senate Bill 2987 in October last year which he called the “Bigger Pie, Bigger Slice Bill.” The measure aims to amend Section 284 of the Local Government Code of 1991 on two important aspects. Firstly, Pimentel said he wants a “bigger pie” on which internal revenue allocation of LGUs are computed by

TREE PLANTING. Former congressman Abdullah Dimaporo encourages the participants of the Mt. Sigayan Climb to plant trees and help preserve the environment for future generations. widening the tax base. Secondly, he said LGUs must have a “bigger slice” from that “bigger pie” vis-à-vis the national government. “Currently the LGUs’ IRA (internal revenue allocation) is based on the national internal revenue taxes’ collected by the BIR” said Pimentel. “But the Constitution states that LGUs shall have a just share, as determined by law, in the national taxes which shall be automatically released to them.” The senator said his bill seeks to amend the phrase “national internal revenue taxes” into “national taxes” which refers to all taxes col-

lected by the national government, including those from the Bureau of Customs, the Philippine Ports Authority, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Department of Foreign Affairs, among others. “The ‘bigger slice’ refers to the sharing between the national government and LGUs. Currently, the sharing is 60% to 40% in favor of the central or national government,” he said. “Under my proposal, the sharing would be hating kapatid, 50-50, between the National Government and the Local Governments.” If his bill is passed into

law, Pimentel said Parañaque’s Share in the National Taxes or SNT (it shall no longer be called IRA) would be P823,236,813 compared to the city’s 2012 IRA share of P646,021,093 – an increase of P177,215,720. “The benefits of the increased LGU share in the national taxes or SNT would also be extended all the way down to the barangays,” Pimentel said. “Since Parañaque City already knows how to use its current IRA for the maximum benefit of your people, just imagine how much good my ‘Bigger Pie, Bigger Slice Bill’ would do to your city if it becomes law,” he concluded.

muncipal government supported Rep. Unabia’s endeavor because the congressman knows the life of a farmer as he has been farmer himself. He added that there are also participants from the second congressional district of the province under Rep. Yevgeny “Bambi” Emano as well as from Davao and Camiguin. Unabia and Maslog were joined in the opening program by the congressman’s wife Erlinda S. Unabia, his brother Eugene M. Unabia, his sister Marilyn U. Martinez who is visiting from the US, Talisayan Mayor Catherine G. Ifurung who delivered the welcome remarks, the municipal councilors, Ma. Romana U. Ababao of the COS National Office, local government officials from neighboring towns including Sugbongcogon Mayor Jerry Lagbas and Vice Mayor Mildred Lagbas, Salay Mayor Roemo Gue representatives from line agencies, other guests and visitors. During the opening program, Congressman Unabia turned over checks to several beneficiaries of his livelihood program totalling P2.2-million. The financial assistance is for the projects of the Calubo Multi Purpose Coop, Membuli Multi Purpose Coop, Linabo Multi Purpose Coop, Built All Farmers Coop, Nammukao Multi Purpose Coop, Saray Farmers MP Coop, Kandiis Women’s Association, Salay Rural Folks Livelihood Women, Artadi Women’s Association, Salay Employees Cooperative, Agay-ayan Multi Purpose Coop, Mananum Bag-o Farmers Coop, Mapua Agrarian Reform MP Coop, Ritarian Food Processors, Talisayan Municipal Federation of PWDs, Lawi Planters Coop, Macopa Women’s Association, Lambu Cooperative, Balingoan Motorized Sikad Association and the Talisayan Municipal Employees Coop.

“British English”, Pinoys are steeped in American culture and communicate better with Americans. Besides, entry-level American call center agents earn about $20,000 a year, about five times as much as similar agents in the Philippines and six times as much as Indian agents. On the down side, the Asian Development Bank says this type of outsourcing provides only about 1 percent of jobs in the country. It doesn’t create jobs accessible to farmers or to millions of other Filipinos in rural areas who seek a way out of poverty. The Philippines’ growing prosperity has also been driven by the 9.5 million Filipinos — almost 10 percent of the population — who work outside the country and who sent home about $20 billion in 2012, up from $7.5 billion in 2003. There are concerns about the country’s shortage of infrastructure and location which makes it highly vulnerable to disasters. Despite the boom in the mining industry, neither the na-

tional nor local governments and most especially, the host communities have benefitted from the massive extraction. Most of all, it is apparent the country’s rising prosperity has hardly dented rising poverty and the gap between the haves and have-nots continues to widen. Because of its political stability, foreign investors have avoided investing in export-driven manufacturing which have successfully established a growing middle class in neighboring countries. So where does that leave us? Our nurses and physical therapists are working in call centers and wreaking havoc on their health and sleeping patterns to earn peanuts (by American standards, that is) to serve American and other competing countries. Even more OFWs are working abroad, destroying treasured Filipino family values while their children enjoy a higher standard of living without ever seeing their parents and mores taken from mindless telenovelas and noon time shows foisted on them by networks which are the epitome of corporate greed. What blueprint do we have for the future while our children spend the bloom of their youth to improve the competitiveness of foreign and competing countries? Recall this boom will only last while there are more workers than there are jobs that need them. When the US firms eventually find cheaper and better trained call center agents elsewhere, where will our 683,000 call center agents go? To quote the old adage “When you pay peanuts, you get monkeys!” Gising na, mga kapatid!

Inflation... from page 4

increases were observed in food items like rice, meat, fish, vegetables and sugar. However, these were tempered by the downward price adjustments in cooking oil, selected condiments and seasonings, gasoline and diesel. In Region 10, inflation rate was highest in Camiguin with 14.7 and the only province in the

region with a two digit rate. This was attributed to the significant increase on the provincial index for housing, water, electricity, gas, and other fuels by 30.9 percentage points. The commodity price index for all income households in Camiguin posted at 154.3 which is also noted as the highest in the region. So, how do inflation and CPI affect you? Inflation erodes your purchasing power. This means that, as prices of goods and services increase, consumers can purchase or consume less and less for the same amount of money. This would suggest that your peso will be able to buy fewer goods next year, and yet fewer goods every year after that. Moreover, an inverse relationship exists between purchasing power and CPI. Therefore, we expect that the purchasing power of the peso (PPP) will decline if CPI is high. If we try to look at the purchasing power of peso in Camiguin, it registered the lowest value with P0.65 and yet highest in CPI. Other provinces in region 10’s PPP ranged from P0.70 to P 0.75 and the CPIs were lower compared with the province of Camiguin. The Purchasing Power of Peso shows how much the peso in the base period is worth in another period. It gives an indication of the real value of the peso in a given period relative to the peso value in the base period.

Domain Title and Ancestral Domain Sustainable Development and Protection Plan. The National Commission on Indigenous Peoples supported the move. Manda is also leading an effort to strengthen and unify the efforts of the Subanons in Zamboanga Peninsula to protect their remaining contiguous ancestral domain. He is also actively meeting with other tribal leaders, mostly his relatives, from the towns of Sindangan, Bacungan, Siayan, Godod in Zamboanga del Norte; and Lakewood and Kumalarang towns in Zamboanga del Sur.
