Loren: stop cycle of corruption . . .

Mercado is IBP governor North to BOOM ‘”if under JOSY”

The cycle of corruption must be stopped if we are serious in our quest for poverty alleviation, and move for the progress of the nation. This was a major concern aired by No. l senatorial candidate Loren Legarda in a press conference last Thursday, upon her bid to return to the Senate even as she also topped the mid-term polls in 1998. The cycle of corruption starts with vote-buying in an election. For P100M for a senatoriable, the normal instinct is to borrow or raise funds and then repay the favor if one wins. And the only way to repay is to , again, raise funds, thru kickbacks and lobby money. Legarda said, in order to stop the cycle of corruption, a winnable candidate must

2 Solon accounts for his pork barrel ... (From page 1) will follow him, and even by the incumbents. Meniong Teves titles his full-color pamphlet “A Valedictory,” a speech which he delivered before the House made its election recess. He gave the media a copy each for them to write or report about the pork barrel. He said pork barrel is good for the people , IF spent honestly and accordingly. But he added, “But bad when you spend the pork barrel in the casinos, fighting cocks, and personal indiscretions.” The CHRONICLE has already published his valedictory few issues ago. Each congressman has a basic salary of P27,000 and an allowance bigger at P50,000 a month. Each of the 218 solons in the Lower House gets

P200,000 each after every end of their session day and another P200,000 during Christmas. Easily each solon gets Pl.lmillion in allowances which Meniong said he declared as additional income. Most solons do not report this additional income. From his pork barrel, each solon has P70-million each year or P210-million in one term . For three terms each solon gets around P630-million. Of these pork, the DBP apportions for infrastructures based on the congressman’s recommendation. Money is released through the DPWH who usually does the construction, or by as private contractor. Some 15% of the entire pork is given as ‘soft pork” which means the solon can do

anything with its thru donations and assistance. This, the solon controls. But there is no law mandating them to account for this money, while the last government clerk will not be given his next salary if he is not able to liquidate even a measly P1000 or more from office expenses. All the infrastructures built by Meniong Teves from his pork barrel are published, pictured, and even described as to its cost and locations. The other solons are not

The real cause of the emasculation of our democracy are those voters –-who like many among us — have allowed themselves to be beguiled, intimidated, tricked, bribed and otherwise controlled by politicians whose disguised purpose is the gratification of their ulterior schemes rather the edification of the nation. Their sinister motives should be exposed and denounced. It is on the education and MATURITY of our electorate that the resurrection and salvation of our democracy depend. Even at this late hour, we can still SAVE and deliver our moribund Republic from its avoidable demise through the scalpel of YOUR ballot. WE, THE VOTERS, and nobody else, should reform and refuse to elect as our professed representatives scoundrels in the municipal, city, provincial and even in the Congress or Senate, who have corrupted, debilitated and dishonored the once-esteemed public office.

Dr y & boring Dry Needs mor e more depthness...

PPCRV poll forum needs depthness in issues probed

B

Before we are mis-construed, all ow us to compliment the people behind the PPCRV, the diocesan movement for development of responsible voting, for being able to at least, put up different forum for candidates all over the three districts, a deed which is impossible in many provinces, even Bohol or Cebu. That they can introduce rather than discuss issues in-depth is already good enough than none at all. None in other provinces because of the bitterness of the poll fight. But here, we have civilized candidates worthy of praise. Indeed the PPCRV fora are semblances of candidates running with clean hands. The candidates forum are intended to be a vehicle of developing responsible voting among the people. But sadly, in reality, the PPCRV candidates fora, has become more of a boring circus of different political aspirants with hardly enough time to exhaust party platforms and issues. Knowing the time limitation, it has resulted into an irrelevant avenue of unfinished discussions because interesting and deep issues are cut short because of shortness of time. Thus, the purpose by which it was created has become defeated. It has become a political fashion show of sorts. So while there is still time left before the people will cast their votes on May 14, the Dumaguete Press Club , board of directors met last Thursday to come up with a more indepth discussion of issues among candidates, so that the people will be able to conclude and vote intelligently. This is not competing, but complimenting what PPCRV has lacked. Time is the issue.

So we , in the tri-media group, starting May 2 will be going “live” and simulcast on radio and TV-cable province—wide, to hear the issues on this mid-term elections. We will provide open wide screen TV sets in big fast food restaurants so we can reach our audience some more. It doesn’t matter if we only talk with just four candidates, so as long as the issues will be well ventilated and exhausted. We will also be inter-active. We will allow the people to air their questions. It will be a full-two hours from 8pm to 10pm , a discussion of issues of Dumaguete, its policy makers, its direction, its achievements and its mistakes and possible solutions. It will not be adversarial, but frank and constructive. Then we go district-wide, a forum among congressional bets. If we have enough days left, we will invite mayoralties of the other big cities of this part of Eastern Negros.

Hero to Heel?

Blame power-hungry politicians, sycophants and opportunists for poisoning the mind of our national boxing hero Manny Pacquiao. After his sensational knockout win in the eighth round of previously unbeaten Jorge Solis of Mexico last Sunday (which sent the nation into another collective frenzy) he will now go to the next bout.

Dateline Manila by Bingo P. Dejaresco

This time, however, he will do away with the boxing gloves and deal with a pint-sized woman reelectionist congresswoman Daleen Antonio, belonging to a large political clan in Cotabato. For Manny’s sake and the country’s (we must say) we hope sincerely that Antonio will clobber Pacquiao in the elections of May 14. Not because we want to deflate the rightly deserved monumental ego of Pacman, the Terminator of Mexican brawlers, but because he is not cut right for the job. Pacquiao can probably do better in the career of singing, although arguably, people only buy his CDs and mimic his ditties because he is the world’s best pound-forpound boxer today. This one Manny Pacquiao

didn’t have a Freddie Roach as coach. A congressman is there primarily to make laws – how can the humble former bakery and construction man as Pacman – contribute significantly to that cause? In a post-fight interview, Pacman said that he feels it in his heart that he wants to help his constituents by becoming a congressman. He was probably thinking of the pork barrel – for which his political “advisers” are really salivating for. With the good graces he is presently endowed with GMA, he can tap into the Palace’s seamless treasure for other projects besides. But that is what is wrong with our politics – it is about getting funds for projects which should be the main concern of the Executive de-

partment and its DPWH, Social Services, Education etc. That is not the main job of a congressman, good gracious. Since he cannot dictate the boxing calendar of the world. Pacman will be forced to go on practice and be absent for his congressional chores (once elected). But man cannot serve two masters, pretty soon, one of these (boxing or congress work) – worse, even both – will suffer from the half-commitment of Pacman. Manny is known to succumb to psychological pressure when some problems affect him outside the ring. Will this messy, corrupt and daredevil world of the Congressman not just bedevil the life of Pacquiao, today’s hero of Filipinos, young and old?

The most important objective is for media to play and achieve its role as catalyst and purveyors of public information. If we do not do this, then media shall have failed in its role in bringing election issues to the people. If the candidate will refuse to join the intelligent discussion of issues, just the same, the tri-media anchors will discuss the issues with the public, and with, or , without the candidate being heard if he or she boycotts. And his or her absence will be construed as an apparent inadequacy on his or her part, and being non-qualified for the position he or she is seeking. We will inform them beforehand, so he or she can block such important dates with the voters. We urge the candidates to please face the voters and the people and show their mastery of the ramifications of the positions they are aspiring for. Otherwise, they have no business joining this election, and worse, the people have no business in voting for them. It is such a pity that the nationalistic fervor that burns with a passionate aroma in the heart of this boxing gladiator has been misused by others to twist his head and attention to some agenda (including also during his popularity to endorse their

candidates) Pacquiao, like Richard Gomez, is not prepared by education and experience to handle well. To the voters in Gensan area, vote for Antonio, if you love Pacman.

MY VISION FOR DUMAGUETE CITY

by ATTY. ARTURO VALENCIA UMBAC (MNSA) Candidate for City Mayor

Breaking out from the COCOON of LETHARGY & COMPLACENCY

I

have a dream – a vision for this our city – the city of my parents, my grandparents, my forebears; this city of gentle people. With its strong and deep religious moor ings, I envision Dumaguete as a city of caring hearts – a city with a soul.

It is a vision nurtured and tempered by the years. I have watched this city grew and in fact, have grown with it from the time when horse-drawn tartanillas, bicycles, a few cars of the affluent and some buses roamed its almost deserted streets. I finished my studies here – elementary, high school, and earned my first college degree burning kerosene lamps into the nights for there was no electricity then in my barrio. Electricity was available only in the poblacion; none in the twenty or so barangays. As I walked daily to and from my school several kilometers away, little did I thought that years later as a young lawyer – trained in the art and science of electric cooperative management – I would play a major role in the lighting up of all the barrios of Dumaguete City as General Manager of the Negros Oriental II Electric Cooperative, Inc. (NORECO II). With 24-hour electricity available in all its barangays, the city burst out from the cocoon of its lethargy. .From that time on life attained a more progressive pace and tempo. I have watched several city administrations come and go doing their level best for the people – wrestling with the challenging realities of a growing population with all its attendant problems of economic, political, peace and order, and psychosocial dimensions. Always this insatiable public demand that government should do more to address a lot of concerns. Even as I recognize the sincere and tireless efforts of others, I feel that I should do something now for our city not just as Why must we suffer another three years of an outsider looking in but as a hands-on insider where I frustrating hibernation, inside the cocoon of lethargy can be most effective - in the hot seat of leadership. and complacency, under a leadership that is without Once concretized into specific plans and programs, I political will, an aging one that lost its initiative, know that many aspects of this vision could not be realvision and determination against all odds to pursue ized in a few years or even in my lifetime. But this new horizons of progress, — yet, we can end it now should serve as a beckon to which others could anby electing a new brand of leaders for Dumaguete chor their dreams over time. on May 14!

PROGRESSIVE APOLITICAL PUBLIC GOVERNANCE I envision a highly proactive city administration that manages the resources of government through well studied programs and action plans that bear the people’s imprimatur; - where the improvement of the quality of life of the people is primordial; - where officials in both the appointive and elective service are role-models in their sense of honor, duty, integrity, honesty, morality; - where the general welfare of government workers is a continuing top priority concern of administrators; - where career service pathing in the bureaucracy is enhanced and developed through values enrichment; - where all those in the service wear their badges of sincerity, dedication, courtesy, and respect to the public; - where public funds and resources of government are strictly – and at all times – considered as such and never, under any circumstance, as private properties and preserves of politicians; - where government appreciates and recognizes the positive role of the Media in purposive and transparent public governance; - where a politician ceases to be one upon election and becomes the leader of all the people; those who voted for him, those who voted against him and those who did neither.

PEACE AND ORDER I envision a city where peace, order and tranquility reign supreme; - where its inhabitants can enjoy a wholesome family life 24-hours a day; - where they can sleep peacefully – safe and secure in their homes – into the dead of nights; - where people can walk the streets anytime without being molested; - where they can react with others in crowded

public places and thoroughfares without being deprived of their belongings; where those in the transport industry are honest and courteous in their dealings with the riding public; - where only road-worthy vehicles operated by duly authorized motorists are allowed in the streets; - where the streets are safe for both commuters and motorists by the installation of traffic lights and other safety devices; - where whatever are the differences and conflict among people the same shall be resolved and settled peacefully and that nobody shall take the law into their own hands; - where those accused of offenses against society shall be afforded due process and that their rights to life shall be respected and protected; - where no extra judicial killings shall be tolerated; -where all component barangays within their territorial limits shall be empowered to make their respective communities safe haven for the inhabitants; where performance of their prescribed powers, duties an functions are insured by supervising authorities; - where law- enforcement agencies are given all the full support necessary for efficiency and effectiveness.

BUSINESS-HEALTHY CLIMATE I envision a city where its government is friendly to business; - where local laws and regulations are evolved and crafted precisely to enhance rather than impede business interactions and transactions; - where the business community is a community of opportunities for the hardworking and enterprising among the populace; - where even those less economically endowed can have equal opportunity to earn their keep in duly regulated market place; - where the government has set up support programs for potential investors and businessmen;

- where government rules and regulations are geared towards assisting businessmen in establishing themselves, gain much-needed momentum, firm up and stabilize operations; - where government treats the power to tax and raise revenues with care and guarded restraint; - where concerned government institutions are focused on the dynamic and positive effects of a healthy free enterprise unhampered by unreasonable regulations and tax burdens; - where government imposes upon itself the imperatives of constant consultations with leaders of the business community where efforts and interests are harmonized through transparency and cooperation.

MY MISSION In this, my mission, is to champion its concerns, set priorities, provide the leadership as we break out from the cocoon of lethargy and complacency, as we make things happen after program planning, instead of waiting for things to happen. This vision shall provide inputs into the master plan of development which addresses the whole forest instead of just its trees. It will be a long and tedious journey to reach the Dumaguete of our dream. But as a wise man had said: “The journey for a thousand miles starts with the first step”; I have taken this first step with this vision. And I shall continue to take further steps to achieve our dream for Dumaguete for as long as our Lord will allow us to do so. Afterall great achievements start and are fulfilled from dreams.

o matter how they are maligned for their perceived incompetence, the administration party Pundok Kasaligan headed by incumbent Mayor Tuting Perdices is confident it can secure a 12-0 victory over their rivals in the coming May polls. Reelectionist Vice Mayor William Ablong said that his party is campaigning for a sweep from mayor down to the last slot of the council in order to continue with their projects as the presence of oppositionists in the city hall is undesirable. Ablong adds that their lineup already represents most sectors of the community like business, women, environment, academe, legal, health and the youth. He also commented that their rivals are campaigning in disparate manner and not a single barangay captain is in their rivals’ fold. However, vice-mayoral candidate Woodrow Maquiling claims that a 12-0 result for the

eteran politician and Third District Representative Herminio Teves claims that Jocelyn Limkaichong is much favored by the voters to win in the First District congressional race against former Congressman Jerry Paras and Olive Paras, wife of incumbent Congressman Jing Paras. Teves based his forecast on a survey he commissioned which purportedly showed that the people would pick up his favored candidate. Limkaichong’s camp also claims that there are so many personalities identified with Olive and Jerome Paras attend her sorties. In the same survey Jerry Paras was dismissed as a weak candidate and the people are simply choosing between the two lady candidates. Olive Paras belongs to Kampi while Josy is affiliated with the Lakas-CMD. Both parties however recognize President Arroyo as their leader. Teves went on to say that it is the mayors of the first district who discourage their respective constituencies from casting their lots on Limkaichong. The outgoing third district representative,

nited Opposition vice-mayoralty bet Woodrow Maquiling disputed the assertion of reelectionist vicemayor William Ablong that his track record will make him victorious this May. Maquiling, who was also a vice-mayor, said that forty-four concrete projects like bridges, roads, schools, and many others were completed under his stewardship without a single appropriation from the then pro Perdices city council. These were made possible with the help of the private sector. He demeaned the achievements made by Ablong which had minimum impact in the lives of the city residents. The city dumpsite a Galing Pook awardee during Maquiling’s incumbency but under an environmentalist like Ablong has totally deteriorated. Tourists can no longer be seen there; even the aviary has been emptied already of the birds it used to house. The holy mass that is being held every first Friday of the month at the city hall under Ablong’s so-called moral recovery program cannot be also be considered a feat because anyone can attend mass at the Cathedral which is just a stone’s throw away.

Travel and Business

W

ith April bringing in summer, people are making or have already made travel plans. This is the time of year when people travel most. Travel cleanses the mind, touches the soul and lightens the heart. Travel can mean making new friends and with a new perspective on life, travel can mean a reconnecting with that one, yourself.

The airline industry recognized people’s penchant for travel at this time. This is also a good time for the airline industry to make client calls. Business people are one of the busiest in the city today; each minute, each hour is precious and important. It is not often that they can leave their office during business hours, but when marketing representatives come over to do product presentations, many of the entrepreneurs take time out to listen to current updates. Last April 18, Northwest Airline, one of the biggest north American airlines that fly from the Philippines to North and South America, sent their knowledgeable and pretty representatives to present product updates and visit with their Dumaguete agents. Ella Mae and Ann, in their pretty Northwest office uniforms, came prepared with their high tech

software and brochures; they updated the different travel agencies representatives on their latest promos and on line access upgrades. The different Dumaguete travel agencies sent their managers or representatives, who aside from interacting with Ella and Ann, enjoyed the camaraderie of each other’s company. This was one of the rare times when the agency representatives spend time together for business and pleasure. As it was a brief but comprehensive presentation, the agency and airline representatives had time to socialize and dialogue. Summer being travel time, this visit was timely for the local travel agencies, and the local agents invited the visitors to enjoy the typical Dumaguete hospitality. Ann and Ella mentioned how they love the well-known Sans Rival and other Dumaguete deli-

Limkaichong fires backa Libertad at critics mayor and first district

L

congressional candidate Josy Limkaichiong countered anew all the allegations leveled against her by political opponents. She insisted that she is a natural born citizen because her father Julio Sy was already a naturalized Filipino after the Court of First Instance decided that he was a naturalized citizen on September 21, 1959 or 18 days before she was born on November 9, 1959. Limkaichong added that the petitioner himself, Napoleon Camero, was not convinced of his own case against her after the latters failed to attend the scheduled hearing on April 20 at the office of Provincial COMELEC Supervisor Atty. Manuel Advincula. She also defended herself from charges that she is maintaining armed goons and turned the tables by accusing her opponents of the same offense. Apparently not the darling of the militants and the New People’s Army, Josy also debunked the accusations by the Leonardo Panaligan Command that not all those who died during the March 9 ambush are innocent

lation of about 400,000 and 100,000 during night time, the city has less than a hundred police officers who work in shifts. The local PNP also severely lacks transportation and communication facilities to cover the 30 barangays comprising

the city. Opposition mayoralty candidate Umbac has expressed his desire to make the city a place where the people can once more walk the streets unmolested and where extra judicial killings are never tolerated by sheer inaction.

Meanwhile, the Commission on Elections served notice that despite Teraña’s possible criminal liability, he is free to campaign as his candidacy is not affected since he has not yet been convicted.

Kasaligan ... From page 6 administration can only be achieved through cheating. In fact this early, Perdices and his allies have already devised methods in order to implement their goal since the incumbent will do everything in his power to avoid an electoral defeat that would sully his otherwise near perfect political record, Maquiling adds. He also does not believe that they will lose merely because they have no barangay captains in their pockets. Maquiling recalled that he and Ipe Remollo won in 1998 as vice-mayor and mayor respectively even without the help of any of the barangay captains.

CRITICAL MOMENTS OF SUCCESS Let me remind ourselves that the word crisis means both danger and opportunity; for the two mutually contrasting phenomena are from the word crisis as written in Chinese characters. And these phenomena are inherent in the human experience of success. The word success has positive synonyms: blessing in abundance, “sit- Dr. PROCESO UDARBE ting pretty” a pot of gold, room at the top. But our claim is that in success, there are also the dangers of moral booby-traps, slippery precipices, falling rocks, unpredictable losses.

TODAY’S

GOSPEL

If we commit ourselves to placing the voice of the Lord first in all that we listen to, we are doing the best that we can to remain faithful to him. On the other hand, if we constantly give our ears over to the voices of the world – voices of the compromise, despair and mediocrity, we will find that we will depart from the road to eternal life. God’s will may not always seem to be the most attractive option at hand, but that is not the point! The point is, what words are going to lead us along the path to eternal life. Eternity is forever. The best that the world can offer us is a few years of glory and pleasure that will end and ultimately leave us feeling empty! John 10:27-30 My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish. No one can take them out of My Hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one can take them out of the Father’s hand. The Father and I are One.”

mensions where the skills and genuine spirituality of Church leaders are tested. Our Church leaders should be wary of falling into red tape and bureaucracy. They have to be always alert to new developments, because the Church by nature always exceeds expectations. While we continue to live within certain structures and known laws, we should not rule out new things that the Holy Spirit can surprise us with from time to time. Away with rigid ways and uniform mentality! Leadership is not a matter of domination and possession. These new things can have a certain radicalness to them. We have to be open and prepared for them. We have to learn how to handle both old and new things as well as a multiplicity of ele-

persons or groups claiming some charism can easily seek out each other. Hopefully, openness, mutual understanding and coordination can ensue. In this regard, it is worthwhile to recall some relevant indications meant to test the authenticity of a charism. They are: a) Is the charism clearly rooted in the faith of the Church? b) Do those claiming it stand by the successors of the Apostles and of Peter? Do they obey the hierarchy? c) Are they free for social service and the proclamation of the Gospel? d) Is there a personal encounter of the members with Christ? With these, we hope the springtime in the Church becomes perpetual.

ments. It is this working of the Holy Spirit, manifested in many ways, which the visible and hierarchical Church should carefully and, as much as possible, punctually discern, defend, promote and properly integrate within the Church. Discerning the authenticity of charisms, for example, is already a formidable task. Bogus charisms are plenty. But that’s not all. Purging charisms from impurities that can take place at their reception or in their expressions is even a tougher job. It cannot be denied that abuses and errors have accompanied what otherwise can be considered as a genuine charism. Pointing them out and correcting them require real fortitude and prudence. To top it all, Church lead-

ers and officials should also know how to promote it, how to develop its potentials to the full and to integrate it for the benefit of the whole Church. Nothing less than heroic sanctity is expected of them to carry out this function. These responsibilities certainly depend on the guidance of the Holy Spirit. On our part, we should be quick to discern this divine guidance and translate it into some human workable system. The Spirit wants to rely on human means too. I am sure that a lot of guidelines have already been made about how concerned Church officials and everybody else should behave when apparent spiritual manifestations take place. Let’s make them more known, so that everyone can be properly guided. Both the authorities and the

Things I Cannot Understand O H BY

S

ILLMAN

Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know. ~ Job 42:3b

I

f there was any one man on earth who had reason to ques tion God’s love, it was Job. He lost his family, his health, and his wealth—all at the same time. His friends came to his side only to question his spirituality. God had already answered the question of his integrity. Job was described in the opening verses of the book as “blameless and upright” (see Job 1:1). His calamities were not born from sin. Job acknowledged God’s right to do anything in his life until one day he could take it no longer. He questioned God’s motives. God answered Job, but not in the way he wanted to hear. God answered him with a series of questions that represents the most incredible discourse of correction by God to any human being. Three chapters later, Job realized that he had questioned the motives of the Author of the universe, the Author of love. He fell flat before his Creator and realized his total depravity. “Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know.” Have you ever questioned God’s activity in your life? Have you questioned His love for you based on circumstances that came your way? The cross at Calvary answers the love question. He sent His own Son in replacement for your sin. If you were the only person on earth, He would have done the same. His ways cannot always be understood or reconciled in our finite minds. That must be left for a future time when all will be understood. For now, entrust your life to Him completely. Embrace Him in the hard times and the good.

No compromise for adventurists

J

ust because the administration mentioned unity and reconciliation with military adventurists in cluding renegade ex senator Gringo Honasan does not mean that they want to take Honasan in as part of the administration unity team.

The unity and reconciliation being pushed by the administration could not possibly mean compromise on cases against anyone, since only the court can determine their legal fate. The House Contingent Head to the Electoral Tribunal, said the cases against Honasan and Estrada should not be equated with politics because this would surely undermine our legal system. By the principle of separation of powers, the executive administration should never meddle in the affairs of our courts. We believe it respects the courts’ independence and their decisions regardless of whether these are favorable or not to government critics . It is our humble opinion that the government remains firm on its position rejecting any compromise with anti-Arroyo forces who have pending cases in the courts. Let justice take its course. If the court finds them guilty, then they should be punished, otherwise they should be freed. Now is government’s shining moment in showing that we do not have double standard of justice here in the Philippines. Just because Honasan’s bail of P210,000 gained him temporary liberty, should not be viewed as a prelude to his freedom nor a form of compromise with the government. He’s out on bail because the court simply did not see him as the mastermind in the Oakwood mutiny, but that does not also mean he has clean hands. The truth will be unveiled once he goes on trial, But truly, until proven otherwise, all those with pending cases in court regardless, are presumed innocent until proven otherwise. And worse, if elected, those with pending cases are not automatically exonerated with criminal liability, but their cases continue to be pursued up to its finality.

During the Fourth World Conference on Women Platform for Action, it was proclaimed that the human rights of women include their right to have control over and decide freely and responsibly on matters related to their sexuality, including sexual and reproductive health, free of coercion, discrimination and violence. Equal relationships between women and men in matters of sexual relations and reproduction, including full respect for the integrity of the per-

son, require mutual respect, consent and shared responsibility for sexual behaviour and its consequences. All human beings, especially women, have to take care of their health especially their sexual health. With this we mean not only having the knowledge of how to take care of your body but also taking full control in decisions that will affect it. It also means having the courage to protect yourself, to say no, to

speak out and to demand attention. Sexual health is fundamental to the development of one’s full human potential, to the enjoyment of human rights and to an overall sense of well-being. By endorsing sexual health for all, legal, health and education systems build a strong foundation for preventing and treating the consequences of sexual violence, coercion, and discrimination.

P30B INVESTMENTS FOR THE PHILIPPINES

OAO, CHINA — The 2007 annual conference of Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) held in China’s Hainan Province concluded successful on Sunday night. With its strongest-ever lineup of entrepreneurs and leading thinkers in its history, the natural media interest it garnered has been a double-edged sword.

Minister Hua Long also accepted media suggestions that more government officials take part in the event, providing a multi-purpose pulpit that entrepreneurs and policy-makers could both avail themselves of. Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and Pakistan Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz also attended the conference. Other prominent speakers included Microsoft Corporation chairman Bill Gates and Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus.

More than 1,400 of the most influential politicians, business leaders and intellectuals from 36 countries and regions also participated. Topics at the conference included Asian integration, energy cooperation, innovations in the banking and telecommunications sectors, corporate social responsibility and the media’s role in building a harmonious Asia.

Addressing this fear, BFA Secretary-General Long Yongtu stated that the forum could be judged on two merits, the lineup of participants and the topics discussed. “There are many CEOs and top business leaders here. These naturally attract more media coverage, but our main core of participants hails from SMEs or private companies. Hence every year, we visit many other places in China like Wenzhou, Ningbo, Dongguang and Shunde. I want to meet local entrepreneurs and educate them about the forum. They should feel that the Boao Forum is a place of learning and exchanges with larger successful companies, an experience which could be very positive for their own companies’ futures,” said Long. Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and Pakistan Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz also attended the conference. Other prominent speakers included Microsoft Corporation chairman Bill Gates and Nobel

Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus. More than 1,400 of the most influential politicians, business leaders and intellectuals from 36 countries and regions also participated. Topics at the conference included Asian integration, energy cooperation, innovations in the banking and telecommunications sectors, corporate social responsibility and the media’s role in building a harmonious Asia. The BFA was established in 2001 as a platform for high-level interaction between leaders from Asia and around the world, with the aim of promoting the development goals of Asian countries through greater regional economic integration. The theme for this year’s conference was “Asia Winning in Today’s Global Economy - Innovation and Sustainable Development”. The conference opened in this island resort of Hainan last Friday.

Montaño seeks vigilance against election cheating BY: RICHARD PAREJA

O

pposition Congressional bet Ramon Montaño urged voters in the province particularly in the second district to be vigilant and help in closely guarding the ballots all the way to the finish line of this year’s electoral process. Montaño’s call came after local lackeys and spokespersons of the ruling local administration had harp that they will surely win this coming May 14 elections. One of the spokespersons identified with the administration of both Governor George Arnaiz and 2nd District Rep. Emilio Macias II had already harp and insinuated the “9-1” victory as against the opposition headed by Montaño. Montaño explained that what they are doing (lackeys and spokesperson) is a “mind conditioning” scheme to hide their possible move of employing scheme of cheating. Montaño said that the administration had resorted to this “evil thing” after several barangay leaders had been pressured to support, despite of the fact that it is against their will. “Sa daghan na nakong pagsuroy suroy sa mga nagkadaiyang mga dapit, ang mga kapitan sa mga kabarangayan misulti kanako nga sila gipanghasi ug gihulga nga dili hatagan sa mga proyekto kung kini mosuporta sa mga kandidato sa oposisyon” stressed opposition congressional bet.

Montaño pointed out that because people now desire for a genuine change in the present crop of leaders in the provincial level, the administration now has put up another “dirty tricks” method that includes pressuring village leaders and other officials. Montaño further explained that the present administration has regarded the whole province as their one big hacienda where they act as landlords dictating to their tenants on what to do. “The present administration wanted all the people in the province especially in the second district to toe the line bisan ug dili madawat sa tawo ang ilang gipangbuhat” Montaño further stressed. The opposition congressional bet had emphasized that people voting for their respective leaders is a sacred act and duty, and at the same time, it is everyone’s obligation to defend and protect it from interested individuals who want to subvert the true sentiments of the electorate.

Biking proliferation needs city regulation

A

pril 24, 1977 — It is inspiring to note that more and more people in Dumaguete are using bicycles both in response to the call for energy conservation and keeping oneself physically fit. Day and night especially during these summer months one can see scores of people, young and old alike crisscrossing the roads with easy riders and racer bikes. However, at night they can easily pose as threats to possible traffic accidents because most of them failed to install lights or reflectors on their units. Most of these bikers are kids or simply the public is also asked to let children use vacationists who seem to forget that there is flashlights or dynamo-run bike lights at has yet to be order along the road if acci- night to warn incoming motorists of their dents are to be prevented and lives preserved. presence. The Sangguniang Bayan is asked Hence, it is proposed that an ordinance must to promulgate the said measure in order to be crafted to require bikers to install lights save the lives of motorists and pedestrians and reflectors on their bikes. Furthermore, before it’s too late.

April 26, 1987 —- Task Force Sugarland Commander Col. Rene Cardones reported to Gov. Meniong Teves in Ayungon that the army has arrested, jailed and charged four army troopers who were allegedly involved in the killing of an 18 year-old youth inside the dance hall. Cardones assured the public that the army will conduct an impartial and meticulous investigation until justice shall have been served. People in Ayungon staged an indignation form.

Suspended health officer sues city mayor, 6 others

A

pril 27, 1997 — A Php 1.8 million damage suit was filed against seven government head including Mayor Agustin Perdices in connection with the alleged city health anomaly which led to the suspension of city health officer Dr. Susano Larena. Based on the affidavits submitted to the court, Larena claims that prior to the start of the investigation made by the city hall, they asked for a copy of the complaint against them for referral to their lawyer. However, Atty. Samuel Dicen reportedly advised them that there was no need for it “because it is just a fact-finding investigation.” But Larena said, the investigation became a full-blown administrative case, and thereafter recommended for their suspension. Mayor Perdices also suspended them verbally without rendering and issuing a written suspension order. As a result, the

complainants endured social humiliation, besmirched reputation, low morale and sleepless nights which can only be compensated by way of moral damages. Perdices defended his decision saying that due process was observed.

Footnote to a . . . From page 8 investigated the facts, it was stipulated that “the election of SeÔor Villanueva be not confirmed and that a new election be ordered.” However, Hermenegildo Villanueva was made provincial governor that year 1906 until 1910. He also served in that capacity in 1931-1935. His younger brother, Enrique Villanueva, was also gover-

nor in 1916-1925; still another Guillermo Villanueva in 19411944. There’s no gain saying history repeats itself in this footnote to political dynasties in the province. Why the forthcoming May election has everyone going crazy, this casual observer cannot understand.

MY FIELD OF DREAMS

A Different View

I am so blessed that NEGROS CHRONICLE has con stantly allowed me to witness for the Lord Jesus and share my thoughts thru this corner. The horizon is boundless and the revelations inexhaustible. However, worldly wealth became inconsequential to the point that life itself is revealed to be worthless without the contentment of the human soul; and worldly powers, even if exercised by potentates, are actually weaknesses if not inspired and motivated by God’s grace. Whew! Heavy stuff you might say but that is MY FIELD OF DREAMS – the contentment of the Human Soul which will tremendously reduce the wants of the human body. The fulfillment of that dream will positively impact on the ills of our society and the upliftment of human race as a whole. The vastness of MY FIELD ecute.

And we can certainly see that right here in Dumaguete and the rest of the country – summers are hotter, storms are more severe, and dry seasons last longer than they used to. PAGASA is making one of their fearless forecasts that we will have at least 13 typhoons from June to October this year! The documentary emphasizes that we must take action NOW! Whatever little we do now will help alleviate future climatic changes. What can we do? We can go back to the basics of healthy food. Instead of buying processed, frozen and canned foods, we can

have our own home gardens, even if these gardens are just in pots, old tires, or plastic bags hanging on the fence or wall. A few chickens can supply a family’s egg needs. Fresh fruit is abundant in season, the excess harvest can be dried or

Migz bats info-drive on rent control law

A

dministration senatorial candidate and Mindanao Rep. Migz Zubiri today prodded government to conduct an information drive on the Rent Control Act of 2005 to protect apartment renters from being charged rates not allowed by law. Authored by Zubiri , Republic Act 9341 states that the rent of dwellings currently being leased for P10,000 a month in Metro Manila and P5,000 in other areas shall not be increased by more than 10 percent annually if occupied by the same lessee. Zubiri said the features of the bill should be widely disseminated “in the light of a government study that rent takes up 14 percent of the average household expense.” Perhaps government can run infomercials in its three TV stations about this law, he said. “Because ours is a republic of renters, this is one ad they will be interested in.’ He said RA 9341 was meant to provide relief to at least 1.5 million families who reside in rented rooms, apart-

ments and houses. While it pegs a ceiling on rent increases, the law , according to Zubiri, “strikes a balance between the need of tenants to be protected against astronomical rent increases and the right of owners to a fair return on their investments .” He said dwellings that are being leased for more than P10,000 are deregulated. “These are the presumably the new ones which we are putting outside the scope of rent control so their owners can recoup the money spent in building them, “ he said. In areas outside highly urbanized cities, the law sets a threshold of P5,000 . “ In other cities, only those whose rent is below this amount is covered by it,” he said Zubiri explained that

the law retains the maximum “one month advance -two months deposit “ rule in rentals specified in the 2002 Rent Control Law . To underscore his claim that his pet measure is fair to all, Zubiri said “ the grounds by which a renter can be ejected which include non-payment of arrears and the need of the owner to recover the unit for his family’s use is also specified in the law.” Zubiri said the law also advocates the rentto-own scheme as it is a more durable solution to lack of housing . “ The law does not merely control rent , it encourages renters to acquire their own homes, he said.”

Angara urges restart of stalled Doha talks

Team Unity Reelectionist Senator Edgardo J. Angara said the develop ing countries should take the major initiatives to restart the stalled trade liberalization talks by slashing down agricultural subsidies and by easing the tariff and non-tariff barriers they have imposed to restrict the entry of agricultural products from developing countries into their markets. “It is now the call lion a day .

If JOSY wins, two astute businessmen in Julio Sy, father of Josy, and Rep Meniong himself, an accomplished businessman, would be teaming up for various economic ventures up north.HGTeves is the provincial chairman of Lakas CMD national party of President Arroyo Meniong said, Guihulngan used to be the biggest supplier of tobacco in the province and now it is no more. San Carlos city has closed its sugar mill and there is none today in the north. There is also a need for a big and modern hospital to care for the thousands of patients who are treated in some “mona lisa hospitals.” The new port of Bulado has become a white elephant which will soon viably be operated. A mall will be opened by big businessmen conglomerate in Guihulngan. All, if there will be a change of congressional representation in the first district, Rep Teves said. Teves has a vast area of

land holdings in Tayasan. Soon , another golf course will be opened in one of the first district towns, which will spell a boom in tourism. La Libertad Mayor Josy Limkaichong who has already caused the town to open a plush convention and beach resort owned by the municipal government is expected to expand its market for Dumaguete conventionists who want to be far from the madding crowd. As this developed, Josy Limkaichong who is running against another new comer Olive Paras, is expected to make a runaway of the crown, unless she will be as victim of massive cheating by other unscrupulous parties. What is evident is the significant rise of the number of registered voters by 9% in Guihulngan which is way higher than the population growth of Negros Oriental which is at 2.3% Josy said it took her a long time to discern about her first crack at congress. But her father gave full support to her passion which is public service, she told reporters in a press conference at the Rovira suites.

Name swapping ... to call our province “Oriental Negros” by virtue of a Sanggunian Resolution, and Rep. Macias insists that this province is legally called “Negros Oriental”, then that is their own lookout. We do not want to insist as to who is right because both have points to claim that they are right. The BIG REASON why the names of Oriental Negros or Negros Oriental became and issue , is the fact that for many occasions, our province has always been inadvertently referred to as Occidental Negros. To the frequent embarrassment of our people, our officials, and so perhaps in desperation, we thought of changing our name

to Oriental Negros. Even the President herself at one time, slipped her tongue and called us Occidental Negros. Our embarrassed officials at the capitol perhaps recognized the fact that our province does not have enough reputation of being unique and distinct from the rest in that we are inadvertently referred to as Occidental Negros, in Manila and even Cebu, and many time in the national TV primetime news. It is not the name, Virginia, but what we need is more exposure to the whole world, of what we are, and why we are, and because of the lack of it, we are far behind the RECALL business compared to that’s of

Legarda felt pessimistic with the ingenuity of Filipino entrepreneurship, in that the Comelec is not yet prepared to computerized election counting. She said, instead, wise hackers might create computerized cheating that might wreck havoc the canvassing. And most of all, the cost it entails, and more, if the system boggs down. PEACE & ORDER.

Our very own Apo Island is known internationally, but the world does not know that Apo Island is in a town called Dauin, which is in Negros Oriental. Siquijor is better because the world knows its unique legendary and mystic reputation as another tourist island in the south. So my friend, the name of the game is PROMOTING & PACKAGING of what is unique in us. And most importantly, by the right people to make the right package , at the right time, the right medium, and at the right place. We do not want this issue to escalate as Oriental Negros being pro-Arnaiz and Negros Oriental as pro-Macias. That is at the height of childish stupidity. We have so many other urgent things to do. Changing the name is immaterial. What is material is that we make ourselves a MARK as a unique province, distinct form the rest. Like Dumaguete is more known as the seat of Silliman University and vice versa. This means Dumaguete and Silliman have made a mark. For those name-conscious leaders in this province, let us stop making a fuss as to what our province is to be named. It’s too late for baptism by name. What we need is the proverbial “baptism by fire,” if only to jolt us awake from our deep slumber. So regardless of what we are called, so long as we make a mark as a unique province , distinct from the rest, the whole world will always know us by name and —even by heart. —

after that event explains where we are today. One of the “PERSONALITIES” of the Critical Mass FAILED and failed miserably. The common folk (masa) and the Military did its job and its share, even tried to do it again and again but still could not make it work because one of the “personalities” failed to do its share. That “personality” was the EDUCATED. We, the educated FAILED our nation in the long stretch. We tried, but we didn’t try enough. I saw that original Cory constitution, which started as the embodiment of our desires designed to change and revolutionize our country to the better “watered” down by the politicians until it became like prozac or some pretend antibiotic. We allowed it to happen, we failed the common folk and we failed to even support our reformist military idealists. Now we talk of “People’s Initiatives”, “Citizens Corruption Watchdogs” or even going after “persons responsible” for policies like the COA, Sec. of Finance,

etc. ...all nothing but hot air ”NATO” (No Action, Talk Only). The common folk are tired and the military is frustrated not only because WE failed to do and follow through our share, we are still, up to this date, playing with our belly buttons unable to gather our wits and do what we are supposed to do- create the new system we need for change; independently create a constitution designed for change outside of politics! Only then will the other two come back and make that “Critical Mass” whole again. Let us remember that great changes are not created by the majority. It is created by a few and SUPPORTED BY THE MAJORITY. Again, that “few” is US, the Educated. We have failed our Nation. We need to get up on our feet and do the job once and for all. Our people and our military await as they are nothing without us, the Educated. The Nation needs to be WHOLE to change itself.

my friend. Every Christmas I would call Bernie’s mother and wish everyone health and happiness. This year her mother said Bernie was dead. Her husband had broken his promises one last time. It is difficult to imagine partner abuse being in the city of “Gentle People” but sadly it is

everywhere. It is not a problem with easy solutions. If psychological or physical abuse is destroying your life get professional help. Protect yourself. You are not alone. Others have faced the same problems, let them help you find an answer. Help is as close as your neighborhood church and internet café. ( h t t p : / / w w w. u n i f e m eseasia.org./projects/evaw/vawngo/ vamphil.htm).

Someone who loves you does not hit you. Despite the promises, once the hitting starts it probably will never stop. It can even spread to include your children. The violence will usually gradually get worse until serious injury or even death can the result. If you are the abuser, seek help. You have anger issues and need professional help. If you are being abused, leave. Bruised pride and being alone is better than being crippled or dead.

HOPES to share the inheritance of salvation by dying and rising with him. How far have we absorbed or imbibed THE WORD of God as food of the human soul? How anchored or how immovable is our FAITH in that HOPE of a glorified life-after.? Remember, TRUE HOPE and TRUE FAITH demands a spiritual death and a consequent spiritual rising, which could happen if and only if we deliberately and consciously submerge, surrender and bury our lives into the WORD OF GOD and eventually rise therefrom as a renewed and reborn Christian. Thereafter, the expression and demonstration of LOVE and CHARITY is no longer a duty or an obligation but rather a WAY OF LIFE. A culture of love, forgiveness, patience, joy, self-control, healing, peace, gentleness and goodness is eventually developed. And with humility, we begin to understand our sinful, unrighteous and undeserving nature yet modest in our experience of contentment of the Human Soul in Christ Jesus. It is then that my field of dreams becomes a FIELD OF ENLIGHTENMENT AND CONTENTMENT. The human heart is changed! The wounded soul is healed! Hatred is turned to love! Forgiveness is easy to express! Reconciliation and peace abounds. Material and spiritual blessings are shared and never consumed because they keep coming back. With love and charity as a way of life, God entrusts us with things far greater than what we could ever imagine NOT TO OWN AND IDOLIZE but to share. We own nothing, not even our lives. “I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me – the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s grace” (Acts 20:24).

changes and reforms and a better quality of life”, Limkaichong said. Limkaichong said people flock freely to her and attend rallies even in the hometown of her opponents. It is evident they are fed up with the present and previous congressional leaders in the district and are hoping for a change for the better. Meanwhile, Lakas provincial chairman and 3rd dis-

trict Representative Herminio Teves has reiterated his support for Limkaichong’s candidacy. “I’m backing up Josy Limkaichong because she has integrity and credibility and is a winnable candidate. She can serve the 1st district better than the Parases ever did over the past eighteen years”, Teves said. In response Limkaichong said “I am grateful to Rep. Herminio Teves for endorsing and supporting my candidacy. With his blessing, there is no reason why I should not win”.

the “Critical Mass” was ripe and ready to wake up! Although the resulting movements failed in the long stretch, we should have, at the very least, found out and remembered those programmers/operators. Up to now those true heroes are faceless and nameless. I suppose real heroes are always faceless and nameless, huh? Given the very rare opportunity, I would like to personally shake their hands as they were the ones who pulled the “Critical Mass” out of the womb of the awakening Filipino Nation as indeed in that very instant, we became ONE! I was there during those crucial moments of our history, having been involved heavily with the Cory campaign under the PDP-Laban Opposition Banner in my province. The rest is history now but history worth looking back as what transpired soon
