Solbaha na!” concerning the spate of unsolved killings in the cities and towns of Negros Oriental, even as they all called for citizens cooperation with law enforcers in pre-empting the commission of heinous crimes.

B

ais City PNP , aside from the Tanjay and Mabinay PNPs , has played a significant role in the arrest and solution of the Azagra robbery holdup, prompting authorities to file robbery with homicide charges against the suspects. According to Bais City Mayor Hector TATA Villanueva, his chief of police Capt Carlos Lacuesta responded to the radio alert sounded off by the Tanods , about the holdup in Azagra Tanjay at the residence of Tanjay supply officer Bogart Coliina who was divested with cash and jewelry worth over P52,000. While the Bais mobile patrol sandwiched the escape vehicle

He in fact ordered that food be given to pursuing policemen. Lacuesta and his men overrun the suspects on foot. They brought the suspects to Mabinay and then to Tanjay

While our innocent young school children are honestly saving precious coins for the future, we have old education examiners who leaked the June nursing board exam text questions for a measly thousand pesos. The litte we gained is lost because of the mis-deeds of a few scalawags. They deserve a harsher punishment than death penalty. GET-RICH-QUICK-MANIA Our deplorable get-rich-quick mania among Filipinos has again gotten the latest toll among those concerned when what is now perceived as a booming industry which is the Nursing Profession, has given a black eye on the entire country because of the recent leakage in two subjects of the June nursing board examination.

The jampacked Macias Sports Centre represented most sectors but our own congressmen were nowhere to be found. Aren’t they concerned too? Nasaan sila? Rescue teams and amateur radio enthusiasts were also tapped to lend a hand in providing fast communications. Citizens text messages will also be handy.

E have to be more conscious of this duty, especially at these times. Certain developments, sadly led by some reckless Church leaders, are distorting, even perverting, the Church’s sense of power, authority and pur-

pose.

The Church, of course is a great mystery. No one can dare to say he has the full understanding of it. Yet Christ, its founder, through his words and actions, through his life and death, has left us with a good idea of what it is

FR. ROY CIMAGALA in many Church documents like the constitutions “Lumen gentium” and “Gaudium et spes.” And yet, it seems all these are ignored. The indication, for example, for the clergy and the hierarchy to stay out of politics is quite clearly spelled out already, together with their reasons. It’s an indication that surely is based on the life and example of our Lord Jesus Christ who, in spite of many irregularities of the political environment of his time, did not get entangled with politics. He did not allow himself to get distracted. He once said, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s” (Mt 22,21), defining the distinction and relationship between the

eternal and temporal realities, the spiritual and material things that govern our lives here on earth. In my view, it’s also an indication that needed to be clearly spelled out after a long, painful and ugly Church history that saw the mess created when the clergy—from popes down— got enmeshed in worldly affairs. Imagine, popes who acted also like kings with armies and wealth, who entered into wars and engaged in really dirty politics, and of course who committed all sorts of crimes! That was the period of Caesaropapism and clericalism, a confusion of spiritual and temporal powers that contradict the gospel message. Recent actuations and statements of some bishops indicate there’s a trend to a return to this ugly mentality and culture of the Church in the past. Things may not be that clear yet, but the symptoms are already there.

and how it should be. It’s part of divine revelation entrusted to all of us in the Church, both pastors and lay faithful, each with his proper roles. It’s a revelation that is now amply articulated

Their justifications vary from the funny to the absurd. That they are just acting as one more ordinary citizen is ridiculous, given the fact that they simply would not be given the attention they enjoy now from the media and the public if they were not bishops. That they are simply voicing out what seems to them as the right thing to do, or even the moral option for people to take, is even more ridiculous. Are they suggesting that those who have a different view are taking the wrong road or the immoral option? They may not realize it, but the actuations and statements they have just done make them appear more of a temporal power than a spiritual authority. This is a disturbing development. Because of their position in the Church, bishops need to be truly prudent in their actuations and statements on politics. It’s a certain sensitivity that guides them to distinguish between what they ought to do

especially with respect to politics, which they also have to evangelize, and what is already engaging in partisan politics. That’s why the Church’s social doctrine has articulated clear guidelines about how this prudence in politics on the part of the hierarchy should be lived and developed. These teachings should be studied thoroughly. Bishops have a very important role to play in Christianizing politics. It’s not a matter of coming up with concrete political positions. It’s more of creating the proper atmosphere for a free and responsible discussion of issues. It’s more of facilitating substantive and fruitful dialogues among all the parties involved, reminding everyone of the requirements of the common good. Their role is also to remind everyone of the need we have of the spiritual and supernatural means in our efforts to live out our political life. These can never be neglected. And the hierarchy is the proper authority to make this reminder.

nter now the spokesman of God – Nathan. He goes to David and tells

a story: There were two men in a certain city. The one rich and the other poor. The rich man had many flocks and Dr. PROCESO UDARBE herds; but the poor man had nothing but one little ewe lamb, which he had bought. And he brought it up, and it grew up with him and the children. It used to eat intently to the story. The intent of the morsel, and drink from of Nathan’s story is clear.

But he took the story of his depriving Uriah of poor man’s lamb and prepared his wife. He makes a scathing it for the man who had come to condemnation. “He deserves him. to die,” he said.

John 6:41-51

he Jews do not understand what Jesus is saying. They are not alone in their mystification. We still struggle to understand these words today. It just goes to show that it is not always easy to understand what God is trying to say to us. Let us pray for the grace to understand more fully the truth of the nature of the Eucharist so that we will better appreciate the gift that it is to us and approach our reverence of it in a fuller and better way. The Jews murmured about him because he said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven,” and they said, “Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph? Do we not know his father and mother? Then how can he say, ‘I have come down from heaven’?” Jesus answered and said to them, “Stop murmuring among yourselves. No one can Turn to page 9

Also for Businessmen and Professionals:

Planning without God

BCBP Info

BY: REV. FR. ROMAN C. SAGUN. JR.

By OS Hillman

I know, O Lord, that a man’s life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps. –– Jeremiah 10:23

I

n business I hear a lot about planning. Every January I hear workplace believers establishing their planning for the year. Corporations establish plans that cover anywhere from one to five years. Individuals establish personal life plans. There is only one problem that I see with most planning done by well-meaning believers. If God is not the originator and director of the plan, then that plan is doomed for failure. So often, Christian workplace believers set out to plan something that seems good in their own mind. The merits of what is being planned can look great, and it can even be a worthy endeavor. However, that is not the point. When Jesus said He came only to do the will of the Father, He could not consider doing anything that was not what the Father wanted, no matter how good or righteous it might appear to be. “In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps” (Prov.16:9). God must give us the vision for what He calls us to do. After we have the vision, we must ask Him if He wants us to take action on that vision and what the action steps entail. The Lord wants to direct each step of the planning process. David learned this lesson when he went to battle against his enemy, the Philistines. One day he inquired of God as to whether he was to go up against the Philistines, and the Lord said, “Yes, but only when you hear the marching in the balsam trees.” It is a mistake to reason and analyze in order to come to a decision on a matter. The Lord already knows the answer. It is our responsibility to seek Him to find out His mind on the matter. Our planning must be established in Him. Only when we remain so connected to the source can we be assured of putting God’s plan into place. Also, getting that plan confirmed through others will assure that we are not following the deceit of our own heart. When you begin to plan next time, ask God for His wisdom for establishing the vision and action steps. You will be surprised how well He can plan.

Church Complex between 1777 and 1846

xposed to constant Moro incursions and piratical raids from the 1600s on ward, it was understandable that the church complex was constructed as a great fortress. The most terrible of these raids took place in December of 1722, when the Moros attacked, looted, and enslaved local people of Dumaguete and in the districts of Budiong, Dauin, and Siaton. Together with fifty other men, the parish priest of Dumaguete, Fr. Juan de Prada, had fled to the hills for safety. Likewise, from May to June of 1754, the marauders showing once again ruthlessness had razed Dumaguete, the last of its kind for years. More than six hundred natives had been abducted from

Dumaguete and its environs and “only three were able to escape” from the barrio of Siaton. However, due to the campaign led by its courageous parish priest, Fr. Jos¾ Manuel Fern«ndez de

Septi¾n, only Dumaguete remained untouched while most of Negros was systematically ransacked between 1755 and 1760. Based on the book re Turn to page 10

It is written in the prophets: ‘They shall all be taught by God.’ Everyone who listens to my Father and learns from him comes to me. Not that anyone has seen the Father except the one who is from God; he has seen the Father. Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes has eternal life. I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate the manna in the desert, but they died; this is the bread that comes down from heaven so that one may eat it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world.”

—————————— In Siquijor, it is said that lawless elements and shadowy characters could not find heaven in that island of fire. Why? Because the people there are concerned and vigilant. They immediately report these to the authorities. No wonder Siquijor is No.1 as the most peaceful province in Region 7. With Oriental Negros, second, if this is a consolation at all. ——————————Our people demand so much from government and the officials running it. This is their right. But our people should never forget that they have a role to play in governance, in peace and order. Some people should stop being the proverbial monkey who know nothing hear nothing, see nothing when crimes are committed in their midst. They should be concerned, vigilant, supportive. —————————Ask not from government what you yourself are not willing to give. Wanted: Vigilant and Concerned Citizenry. For immediate posting.

NO TIME

for GOD ?

I knelt to pray but not for long, I had too much to do, Must hurry off and get to work, For bills would soon be due. And so I rattled a hurried prayer, Jumped up from off my knees. My Christian duty now was done, My soul could be at ease.

All through the day I had no time, To speak a word of cheer. This Breakfast NO TIME to speak of Christ to friends, could yet change They’d laugh at me I feared. your Life. NO TIME, NO TIME, so much to do, That was my constant cry. NO TIME to give to those in need; At last, t’was time for me to die…. And when before the Lord I came, I stood with downcast eyes, With his hands He held a book, T’was the BOOK OF LIFE. He looked into the book and said, “Your name I cannot find, I once was going to write it down But never found the TIME.”

From page 8 cording the notable things of the Dumaguete parish from 1855 and well into the 1900s, there is no mention of the threats and dangers the community was exposed to as described above. It therefore explains why the three other watchtowers had had to be torn down and some portions of the wall by Calle Alfonso XIII (now Perdices Street) had been broken off. (Incidentally, on 17 May 1886 Alfonso XIII was born to Queen Maria Cristina, and a day after was acclaimed

MUMBAKI

A Violent World W

e live in a world which continues to honor and glorify our status, success and achievements. Our productivity is celebrated, while little is made of the value of the inner life, the human conscience or the human soul. Status, success, victories and achievements, no matter how they are obtained and attained are crowned as great and remarkable. The abhorrent, violent, and detestable means employed in the attainment of worldly glories are set-aside as illogical, if not immaterial altogether. Power, arrogance, wealth and the majesty of control and dominion has been elevated to a pedestal of Atty. Joel Cadiogan Obar honor, while humility, honesty and good conduct are secondary if at all given any importance. There has been too much emphasis on negativity rather than the positive and brighter side of things. It all depends on what is in our hearts that cause us to see things differently. Some see nothing, because they bring empty and dead hearts into their seeing. Others see only difficulty and horror in our social environment, because they draw their conceptions from the wells of fear and terror. Others see only negativity because their hearts are embalmed in a judgmental and disapproving spirit. These characters of unhelpfulness and negativity that prevail around us today direct us to wonder what is happening to this beautiful planet earth. One philosopher makes a statement and says; “there is a hallmark and inscription of love upon the world, however much of it has been defaced by hatred and violence”. This conflicting perspective regarding the world’s beauty and its tribulations depicts the constant discord between God’s grace and the stubborn persistence of evil. It also demonstrates the divided nature of man’s heart torn between faith, hope and charity on one hand, and the bitter realism spawned by the dark forces of power, wealth, arrogance and pride on the other hand. Man being created in the own likeness of God is full of peace, love and charity. As such,

man constantly craved for these attributes as long as he lives. However, if the present world is any indication, man has opted to drop his vision of faith and see only the world marred by our inhumanity towards one another. Luckily though, there are still a few of us who see through a window of hope in seeing the world with a God-powered grandeur. We may still see positively upon small pockets of honesty being demonstrated by poor taxi-drivers and janitors; by well meaning employees of the civil service; by Christian workers here and around the world; and many more illustrations of service for the common good inspired only by the thought that God is glorified. Through this kind of vision, we may be able to see that not only is the world not abandoned by God, but God’s gracious love permeates the human community, and his Spirit hovers over all that is good. There is no doubt that there is the constant presence of a determined evil that is embedded in our social structures in the form of pride, injustice, oppression, power and wealth, ever playing in all our hearts

the songs of fear, hatred, selfishness and rebellion. Evil is carrying on its pretentious march and we should forever be vigilant and conscious about it instead of cowering into helplessness and despair thereby permitting the victory of evil over righteousness. With this double vision of good and evil, one is able to make his reasonable and intelligent choices and understand its consequences. This way, we are able to withstand the temptation of worldly accomplishments and transform us to develop the value of the inner self where we find the seed of an eternal God planted and thereby discover the true meaning of our human existence as we come in direct contact with the reality that our life on earth is just a dot in the wide span of eternity. It is by the germination, nourishment and growth of our faith in the majestic and absolute powers of the eternal seed that makes us grow in righteousness and bear the fruits of love, peace and prosperity that shall abundantly flourish for the joy of all creation and only for the Glory of God. It is not to say however,

words: “You are the man.” The four words fell on David’s ears like explosives and left him dumbfounded. For the accusing finger of God was on him. They penetrated his inner being. They were like a dynamite that completely weakened his defenses. They set his conscience on fire, and left him most vulnerable to the truth spelled out by Nathan. Nathan expressed God’s judgment on David for having Uriah killed, for grabbing Bathseba. Therefore, says Nathan, “The sword shall not depart from your house…I will put you to shame before all Israel…Your child will die,” etc. etc. (To be continued) P RA YER TO HOL Y SPIRIT RAYER HOLY Holy Spirit thou make me see everything and show me the way to reach my ideal. You who give me the divine gift to forgive and forget the wrong that is done to me and who are in all instances of my life with me. In short dialogue, I want to thank you for everything and confirm once more that I never want to be separated from You no matter how great the materials desires may be, I want to be with You and my love ones in your perpetual glory.

MAGNET for TOURIST

f history is the guide, then visual experience is the no.1 marketing strategy of every tourism country.

BY: ARCH. NED CARLOS

When tourists flock in with awe and admiration at man-made gems like the Great Wall of China, the ancient temples of Greece, the Coliseum and aqueducts in Rome, or the Pyramids of Egypt, they all boil down to one common genre: Architecture and Design. But why in the world are we not learning from history, if we wanted so much to draw in tourists like magnets? Tourists come here for a pleasant break from real life. They come for sunshine and spectacular! And when their visual experience becomes downright unpleasant and ends in disgust, they sim-

ply look for another city, or worse, another country. Today, Dumaguete City is a fast-growing city with still so much unproductive lands to build on. Construction is up despite the economic bust. However, we see a lot of bland and lifeless buildings sprouting everywhere. If we were to think long term on Tourism, Design should be the first concern of authorities and of building owners, mindful still of the cost. Take Hong Kong, for example. Hong Kong’s streets may be visually dirty to some degree, but it has invested heavily on Design

and Architecture. The Hong Kong skyline has a worldclass design for skyscrapers, better than Singapore’s. And each skycraper there was designed by some of the world’s best Arhitects. Hong Kong, as we know it, is a haven for shopping tourists. Retailers there know that to attract a mass of shopping tourists, their boutiques and buildings should magnetize them, visually! Perhaps it’s time the public learn of the difference between an Architect and a Contractor (please read next issue’s column).

Whether we like it or not the world is full of angry, miserable, discontented, unhappy, hungry people. People are craving for hope, for peace, for cure, and yet they’re nowhere in sight. But let me tell you about Ray. (Not his real name) Ray was young when he was diagnosed with cancer. At first he refused to face this illness. It was too painful when he was subjected to chemotherapy again and again. One day, he decided that it was all that he could take. He would end his pain and relieve his family of financial burden. He locked his room and decided to die. But he didn’t die. Instead he found God in an intimate way, and found life. That was almost seven years ago, and as we ate dinner with other cancer survivors inside Max Fried

Chicken in Cebu, (Only fresh lumpia and more salad please) Ray narrated that since then, he has been actively involved in helping other cancer patients survive by giving them hope, and a future. He found his purpose. He admits that low moments come. There were times that he became so discouraged by other people or even with circumstances. That is reality. But he reminds himself not to dwell on pessimism, but instead just keep on trusting God. Living with cancer is not easy. Sometimes, it is hard to allow your head just a little bit above the sand to get a breath of fresh air. Then something hits you hard on the head, and there you go, ready to bury yourself back into the sand again. Sometimes, we see nothing but dark clouds. For several weeks now, we could hardly get a glimpse of the sun.. Low moments come like homing pigeons in this month of August. Typhoons and heavy rains seem to blend with dying friends with cancer. There were times when I get a glimpse of heaven, and ask myself, why do I have to

endure life? But the sad thing is, we don’t have the right to end our existence. We are not the author of life. And only the one who made it who is God has the single right to take it back. To quit is easy. But Isaiah has a better solution when he wrote “But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength… they will run and not grow weary.” If someone puts you down, or you have just received the storm’s deadliest blow, think of the toughest tree, that has grown stronger and stronger as the cutting winds whipped its limbs mercilessly day by day. When you feel discouraged and beaten, think of the sweetest melody of words that can encourage and nurture others. You may not hold the greatest job on earth, nor the talent that others have, but the words you give can change multitudes. Enemies will come and try to destroy you, opposition is expected, but if your heart is right before God, who can beat you? There’s only one way to conquer your enemies. Make them your friends.

Encounter with OFWs

I

n the last weeks, the newspapers and television were full of pictures of our overseas work ers fleeing Lebanon because of the violence

there.

We see the OFWs, almost all women, coming home with their stories of the horrors of the on going war and their difficulty in leaving their employers. Some had made the desperate choice of jumping from high buildings just to leave their employers to join the repatriation back to the Philippines. We who are in the safety of our homes and country did not feel the trauma of these workers, so it is an experience when we come face to face with these women who are leaving for work abroad. Just this June, I took the noon flight to manila to catch an evening connection abroad. Arriving in mid afternoon, I went directly to the International airport where the security

The friends I made at the OFW Center waiting room refused to let me in, telling me that I can check in only three hours before my flight time at 11:00 pm. He however kindly told me I could relax in the OFW Center just at the end of the airport building a few meters away (maybe I look like an OFW!). At the OFW airport Center I saw a room full of people, Men and women, OFWs, I presume, waiting for their flights out, mill around the Center, watching TV or relaxing over a cup of free coffee. The next room was a lounging room with comfortable sofas where some women were resting or sleeping. I found a comfortable corner and I saw a group of simply dressed young women, in their twenties and early thirties, huddled together, subdued and looking sad. I started a conversation and they told me they were from central Luzon and were leaving for the middle east, going to different employers for a 2-year contract. They had said their goodbyes to their families back home and were now on their own facing an uncertain future. There was no excitement over an international trip, only the anxiety of the unknown. What comfort can I give them? I can only give them the spiritual assurance that God will take care of each one of them wherever they are. As we bowed our heads and hugged each other in prayer before separating, I heard their pain through their soft sobs. We must have been a sight, 8 women huddled in one corner, each one in tears asking for God’s protection and blessings for them who are going to work for strangers in a new land, a different culture. It was a humbling experience for me to see our own young women who had left children and their families behind; of the 7, five were married with children and 2 were single, I, older and more able to take care of myself, can stay here, while these young and simple women have to brave the unknown in a distant foreign land. I see their willingness and determination to sacrifice themselves for a better future for their families, braving hardship and danger in a strange land. Face to face with this group of brave women, I give my deepest admiration for our women who have to leave the country to make a decent living. So seeing the women who came home from Lebanon reminded me of those brave young women I met at the OFW Center. Whenever they are now I pray they are well and that God continue to bless them and keep them and their families safe.

Y

es, of course! Tourism is one great VISUAL EXPERIENCE! Why else did they build the Eiffel Tower, The Sydney Opera House and Bridge, the Shanghai Pearl Tower, the Petronas Building and many more around the world if not for its tourism value. These structures attract the crowds and bring in millions of tourist dollars.

If we have the view, why not flaunt it and offer the great “Visual Experience” to the world? Many countries are cashing in on eco-tourism and are building environmentally friendly Tourist Ropeways or Tourist Cable Cars to attract tourists worldwide. The Valencia highlands offer one of the most spectacular views of Dumaguete from the air. Nobody has really seen that yet because it can only be viewed from a Cable car suspended 300 meters in the air. We have to be nuts not to take advantage of this great tourism asset. A simple cable car can attract thousands to that mountain town and imagine what that means to our tourism stakeholders! Imagine what it can do to Valencia’s economy. The socio-economic impact would be

A Violent .... From page 11 that there shall be a visionary madness for spiritual transformation. Sin and evil will continue to lurk its ugly head but without power and might. It is the rejection of the gifts of the eternal seed that is more terrifying and chilling. In closing, it is not evil or sin that set us apart from God, but rather of man’s rejection of God’s gifts of love and forgiveness which are the earthly manifestations of eternal salvation. Our world today is best described in the biblical book of Habakkuk (1:2-4): “How long Oh Lord must I call for help? Must I forever see this sin

tremendous. At present, the sleepy town is enjoying some tourist traffic only because of The Forest Camp. Without that garden resort, who wants to go to Valencia? The Cable Car System is run by electricity and is ECO and ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY as it does not require the forest to be disturbed down below. They come in all shapes and sizes and can carry up to 20 people at a time. Compared to adventure vehicles now being used in the area, which are polluting the environment, a ropeway is the best and safest way to develop eco-tourism in the island. DO WE WANT A CABLE CAR SYSTEM IN VALENCIA? Let’s see if our newly established Tourism Board, LGUs and Tourism gurus can appreciate the tremendous benefits of installing one. Have a nice day!

and misery all around me? Wherever I look, I see destruction and violence. I am surrounded by people who love to argue and fight. The law has become paralyzed and useless, and there is no justice given in the courts. The wicked far outnumber the righteous, and justice is perverted with bribes and trickery.” For those who desire, proceed to read the verses that follows and you will be amazed with the Lord’s reply. It will be the subject of my next article. Brethren, when human strength or wisdom fails, let us always remember that Divine intervention is assured to us through the medium of prayer. Our present world needs our every prayer. Kneel and pray, my brethren.

ADJUDICATION OF SOLE HEIRSHIP AND ABSOLUTE SALE NOTICE is hereby given that Rosemarie T. Cresencio, the heir of the late ROLANDO CRESENCIO have filed and executed an Adjudication of Sole Heirship and Absolute Sale on Lot No. 336, Pls-1072 covered by OCT No. HV-3361 situated at Tayawan, Bayawan City, Negros Oriental, containing an area of 39,233 sq.m., in favor to Elsie Lajot Ballo-Allo per Doc.

From page 1 has hastened government action to launch the anti-crime drive. Officials met for days to alert and coordinate all sectors. Six people were killed in three weeks or two killings a week in identical ways thru motorcycle riding bonnet-wearing killers. The Dumaguete killings are still lower in frequency than in other bigger cities like Cebu and Mandaue, said PNP provincial director Sr Supt Omar Buenafe. Like any growing city, crime also increase, indicative that people’s vigilance should also grow. In the Region=7 crime clock, , Negros Oriental is second to Siquijor in being most peaceful compared to Cebu and Tagbilaran cities. The case of people mauling a snatcher should be the attitude wherein people in the neighborhood will not tolerate crimes in their midsts, said Supt Dionard Carlos, city chief of police/. Those vigilante-style killings could be done by people on criminals whose custody and arrest have escaped law enforcers, according to a PNP official

HOW MEDIA SEES IT, AND NOT OTHERS (From page 2)

Filipino tenacity of putting one over our neighbor even if its means cheating. CHEATING: A LIFE STYLE? Cheating has become a lifestyle among many Filipinos, but not all. Many of our political leaders are noted for cheating during elections. No wonder, even in the board examinations, be it bar exams or the nursing board exams, or what have you, cheating has been rampant. The bottom line of this is our bad culture of getting rich-quick the dishonest way.

What is the effect of the cheating in the nursing board examinations? First, many hospitals abroad have served notice, especially the UK that they will no longer accept and hire Filipino nurses because chances are, they might have gotten their badges thru cheating or dishonest means. Filipino hospitals have also served notice that they will not hire nurses who passed the June board exams for fear of hiring dishonest nurses. PITY THE PARENTS. Pity for the thousands who took the nursing board exams honestly . Pity the parents who have labored to spend thousands of pesos for the nursing board exams. Their dreams for a better life for their children, have been shattered by the few rotten eggs. Woe to those in the nursing board who leaked the test questions in exchange for a few thousand pesos, they have just ruined the reputation of the WHOLE Filipino race. And that deserves more than a capital punishment. They Mother Rita ... have just ruined the entire nursing industry. $5000 dollars a month to a Filipina nurse workFrom page 2 number of months al- ing abroad or P250,000 a month can make her ready to settle their obliga- a millionaire in two short years.

Nobody will trust Filipino nurses for work abroad again, if the cheating in the nursing board examinaDEED OF EXTRAJUDICIAL SETTLEMENT tion of June 2006, is not rectified. A RE-TAKE AND ABSOLUTE SALE of the whole board exam is recommended, if we have to regain a lost reputation. NOTICE is hereby given that the heirs of the late Spouses Graciano Labe and Gorgonia Ortega have filed and executed a Deed of Extrajudicial Settlement and Absolute Sale on Lot No. 1189, covered by TCT No. T-14766, TD No. 09-259, situated in the Municipality of Tanjay (now Pamplona), Province of Negros Oriental, containing an area of 1,005 sq.m., in favor to Melquiades C. Torres per Doc. No. 17, Page No. 96, Book No. XIX, Series of 1993 of Notary Public Atty. Rodulfo O. Navarro. The Negros Chronicle Aug. 13, 20 & 27, 2006

While we take pride in the appointment of the Silliman U nursing dean Dr Teresta Sinda, as the chairman of the technical committee on nursing education in the CHED for the whole country, such honor is besmirched by the deed of those dishonest few. Yet, her position speaks of the time-honored integrity , honesty and capabiity, not only of Sillimanians but also of Dumagueteños in general, Sinda being a true blue Dumagueteño. But because of a few rotten eggs in the nursing board, the whole industry has to suffer a re-take of the last board exams, if only to regain our singular reputation of being the country that sends intelligent, hard working, friendly and most of all fluent English speaking overseas workers to work in developed countries.

COMMENTARY

Negrenses ...

Stop SLAPPing the press By Jay I. Dejaresco Associate Editor

There is an urgent need for Congress to pass legislation that would deter the filing of baseless and frivolous law suits against journalists. The state should emphasize this constitutional policy to promote and protect public participation in discussion of matters of public interest by enacting a law that would curb the filing of baseless and harassment lawsuits. This urgent need comes in the wake of continuous libel suits that have been filed against members of the press. Most lawsuits filed against members of the press are meant only to harass newsmen who are only doing their duties as watch-dogs in the affairs of governance. Common charges slapped against the working press are libel and defamation. Most of the complainants are government officials, and the self-proclaimed powers-that-be who loathe the ex poses against corruption and government abuse. Lately, in the national scene, editors and high ranking executives of national dailies have been charged with vio lating the laws against inciting to sedition. At the homefront, the Negros Chornicle has not been spared from harassments by high ranking local government officials who do not like what we publish. A series of libel suits have been slapped against the Negros Chronicle. Fortunately, all these harassment suits never saw the light of day and have been dismissed at the city prosecutors’ level and the Department of Justice. The unabated slapping of harassment suits, with the in tention of pressuring newsmen, or even to silence them should be stopped. This continued harassment sends a dangerous signal against press freedom in the country, and sends a chilling effect upon every journalist. A journalist is hampered professionally and economi cally in the performance of his duties as the purveyor of truth if he has to face frivolous lawsuits. In the United States, there are state laws that protect journalists against the filing of baseless civil or criminal charges hurled at them. Such baseless charges have been commonly labeled as Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (SLAPP). In California for instance, the legislature has passed a statue against SLAPP where a newsman, or an individual engaged in the exercise of free speech who is sued, can seek a preliminary court determination whether the suit is meant only to harass him. The newsman’s relief includes the recovery of the costs of suit and attorney’s fees, should the court finally deter mine that the suit against the newsman or individual is frivo lous and baseless. The Publisher’s Association of the Philippines, of which the Negros Chronicle is an active member, will take the initiative of drafting a similar bill and propose it to Congress. The state should officially declare it to be in the public interest to encourage continued participation in matters of public significance, and that this participation should not be chilled through abuse of the judicial process. It is our obligation as journalists to band together and curb this disturbing increase in strategic lawsuits brought primarily to chill the valid exercise of the constitutional rights of freedom of speech and petition for the redress of grievances. It is high time to put a stop to SLAPP.

Unitop added another feather to its cap when it was honored with the Philippine Marketing Excellence Awards for being the “Most Outstanding General Merchandise Wholesaler and Retailer” in Bacolod City. Economy and budget makes a good team and this is what Unitop hopes to strike with its entry into the Dumagueteño market. Unitop of course has no immediate claims of making an impact considering that it is virtually the new kid on the block. It however intends to offer Dumagueteños budget friendly goods that have become Unitop’s trademark everywhere it has established a branch. With this kind of company vision, consumers know what they will be getting. Even without saying it. Unitop is definitely aiming for the top in the hearts of its customers.

T. Reyes of DENR will spearhead the ceremonial tree planting on August 15, 2006 (Tuesday) here at the Provincial Capitol Area or the Kilometer Zero at 8:30 in the morning, to be followed by a program at the Macias Sports and Cultiral Center at 9:00AM. DENR Sec. Angelo Reyes said that the “Green Philippine Highways” project is meant to promote the image of every Filipino as a planter of trees. The areas to be covered in the synchronized tree planting will include the 2,176.40 kilometer Pan-Philippine Highway that stretches from Laoag City through Cagayzan de Oro to Davao City; 439.20 kilometer Manila North Road that meanders from Laoag City through La Union to Bulacan; and the 823.90 kilometer West Nautical Highway stretching from Batangas City through Mindoro, Aklan, and Negros Oriental to Zamboanga Sibugay. Around 500,000 seedlings will be needed for the activity to be able to plant both sides of the highways at an interval of 10 meters per seedling. Reyes has issued instructions to senior DENR field officials to assure the availability of the seedlings and coordinate with provincial, city, and municipal government units to take part in the activity. He also ordered DENR field offices to hold consultation meetings with local government officials to formulate memoranda of agreements on the proper maintenance and protection of the planted trees to ensure their survival and growth.
