Happy New Year! Everyone!

Airport security put to high risk Airport security and the anti-terrorist watch at the Dumaguete-Sibulan Airport is consequently driven at high risk following reports that private security guards at the premier airport of the province, are unpaid of their salaries since November. This virtually increases the risk of airport security lapses due to laxity in airport security due to the demoralized atmosphere among the ranks of its se-

curity force . Most of them are financially choked by loan sharks where they secure even food for their hungry families. This, even as the air ter-

minal in Sibulan is considered as one the cross-roads of the Visayas and Mindanao, and the hub of drug trans-shipments, plus the terror of gun running

Borrow for necessity and not for luxury . . . .

D

uring the last two weekends of the grand Holiday celebrations of the year, we fancy that lending institutions had a hey day providing borrowers mostly teachers, the money they needed for making the holidays as little brighter since the promised bonuses have not yet arrived. But wait, it arrived Friday, but on the last banking day. Just the same it can’t be encashed until January 4 by the end-user. This came in the wake of the late but timely arrival of the much awaited P6000 bonus for teachers and national workers in the country. Late because the money for the teachers arrived last Friday but could not be encashed until January 3 or 4. Ergo the usual solution is: cash strapped teachers and employees is to go to the lending institutions who are only willing to accommodate them with open arms. The economy may be improving on the top, but below, the coconuts and other farm products like mangoes, bangus fry, rice and root crops, are already sold even before they are harvested, because of cash strapped end-users. In this manner, the rich become richer, while the poor continue to be consumers, not earners. What kind of economy is this? But there is more than what meets the eye in this help-those-in-need-situations. Firstly, we suspect collusion between some government agency personnel somewhere in the regional level maybe who will announce the arrival of the money on the last Thrusday afternoon and deposit the same in the last Friday of

economy will improve, a Robinson Mall will rise and another call center will also open at the Dumaguete Business Park providing more employment opportunities for the graduates in this so-called University Town. Sounds really nice especially since it comes from a respected businessman, no less than the President of the

Filipino Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry Negros Oriental Chapter, Alex Sy. And most importantly it is based not on some session in card reading or on the position of planets but on actual deals reached by people who put premium in pure hard work, perseverance and strong faith in God.

There you are folks, predictions are just that unless you allow them to paralyze you. Whatever is in store for us in 2007, we should not fret nor worry for God the Omnipotent is already there.

Seek win-win Paunay solution

S

cores of “Paunay” vendors who e r e recently relocated to Bajumpandan slaughterhouse area argued their case and plight before the City Council last Thursday saying that their paunay business is dying and it is only a matter of time, unless they are relocated to a more viable area. On the other hand, those main market vendors who also attended Thursday’s session praised the heavens for the removal of the paunay market vendors from mid-Sta Rosa st. because without them (Paunay) they had a good sales last Christmas and hopefully this New Year. Consumers sector who were the most credible said that the City Council must pursue a win-win situation wherein Consumers and taxpayers be given the option to choose which prices of goods are lower and better in quality farm-freshness, in the market, or in the paunay area. WHAT’S PAUNAY? “Paunay market” is like a flea market in for Turn to page 19 w

the week so that it could still somehow earn a few pesos in the banks, during the next four days or so. And these money run into millions regionwide and nationwide. Thus four days “sleeping in the bank’ during weekend “timely” holidays could be good enough money for peanuts in interest earned. This, while the poor employees are waiting in vain for Christmas and the New Year to have that bonus of P6000. We believe that if it is really the government’s intention to make the money arrive on time, it can be done. But no, some uscrupulous personnel, usually want the money to “sleep in the bank for a few days if not weeks” just to earn interest. So who collects the interest earned? Why do you think, does money “always come late” in offices like the highways?

PAUNAY vendors defend their plight before the City Council last Thursday saying that unless they are relocated to a viable site, their business days are numbered. Consumers want Paunay for their low prices and farm-fresh products.

Yet, everybody is happy and no one’s complaining. Maybe, the employees are happy because while the bonus is still in the bank, the friendly lending institutions around are just too willing to advance the money, plus interest of course, and when the bank clears the checks, the government pays the employees, but the lending firm, because of being a DepEd or government “accredited lending firm” is allowed to collect from

Airport ... (From page 1 rity guards deployed by the Air Transportation Office is under contract with the CEBUATO with the Sikatuna Security Agency. The non-payment of their wages started since November 16-31 until the end of December which is today. “They expect us to open our eyes to watch for terrorists both at the airport and airfield, but our stomachs are empty and that of our families. We never had money in Christmas and the New Year,” decried chief guard Francisco Paunillan. The non-payment of salaries was admitted by ATO local chief Veronica SaysonChuang . She told the CHRONICLE that money usually released by the regional ATO to the Cebu-based security agency. The late arrival of the payroll money is a usual case. She is always following up its early release. “My security force and men are forced to go to loan sharks to buy food for their families plus their children who are schooling. I often dish out my personal funds just to augment their needs,” said ATO local chief Ms. Chuang. The unpaid security guards who complained at the LABOR court are : Head Guard Francisco Paunillan, Apolonio Burlayan, Aristedes Loya, Richard Amil, Geovanni Ornello, and three others. Despite this situation, the Sibulan-Dumaguete airport terminal has again been adjudged as the best terminal landscaped airport in the country, in its category. It has been a consistent awardee as among the best in RP for many years now, under Veronica SaysonChuang. Sayson-Chuang assured the public that she has been constantly asking the Cebu ATO to release their salaries of their security personnel. She said the ATO personnel receive their salaries on time. If something goes wrong with security, we surely blame the laxity of the private security agency because they are unpaid their wages due. They can be susceptible to funds from illegal sources just to get enough to feed their families. Chuang observed that once the laborers raise a case with the NLRC, the agency immediately promises and gives partial payment. Later on, the wages come in trickles anew. The question is raised, why does the ATO maintain such contractual relations , and tolerant despite blatant violations like the item on salaries and wages. Why does the ATO not terminate the contract with the agency who does not pay the salaries of its security force on time, thus avoid the high risk of laxity in security in this vital installation.?

Editorial What if - - Volunteers will board A rocket to eternity? Jues Vernes wrote fiction in his time, and became reality in the 20 th Century namely the nuclear submarine ,the nuclear powered rockets, and the war of the worlds. And if Starship Enterprise the on-going fiction has already explored the conceivable universe with earthlings on board, then why can’t we also send a possible rocket ship to eternity? Yes, they have, and that’s NASA’s latest fiction Space Shuttle Odyssey 5 in which five astro nauts could not go back to earth because our planet simply exploded for still unknown reasons while the shuttle was on mission in outer space . So the Odyssey 5 crew had no choice but to explore the universe. But you have to watch the current series which is more thrilling than what meets the eye. At the close of the year 2006 today December 31, Sunday , and with the start of the new year tomorrow, what if - - -a crew of about say 50 well-trained volunteers will decide to board a giant rocket ship on New Year’s day tomorrow, and decide to live the rest of their lives exploring the vastness of outer space unto eternity! In short, retire in space! And why not! We are inspired by earthly adventurers who leave their motherlands, and decide to live in a strange country like the Philippines, like Tambobo bay to be specific, spending the rest of their lives in enjoyable retirement on board a simple catamaran or second had yacht . or those who leave London for good and retire along a beach hut in Calindagan. Who knows that someday by the end of a certain year in the 21st century, this group of well-trained volunteers will decide to live the rest of their lives on board a rocket ship called Eternity and simply proceed into the vastness of outer space and report the marvels that they have seen and experienced along the way, including the possible entry to another galaxy via a black hole! No this is not fiction, it’s just a question WHO are the willing volunteers. So instead of featuring a traditional old man to represent the old year 2006 and a young infant to represent the baby year 2007, we decided to feature a futuristic adventure of these 50 post-middle age volunteers who with eagerness, decide to simply set a voyage to the unknown and report what they have seen

Odyssey 2007 along the way, to us on earth. That could yet be the most-covered adventure in the whole of human history. Instead of just using the Habol to watch distant stars, instead of just voyagers to be sent alone on space exploration, it is possible to find human volunteers to probe the depthness of outer space without the thought of possibly coming back . Why, they could freeze in suspended animation and wake up at certain years in order to control the aging of the human body. (Forever Young, the movie.) It could yet be the noblest form of retirement, wherein man can contribute immensely to the knowledge of science and even perhaps our own history and genalogy. If qualified, this writer is willing to volunteer. So what’s the difference if a Filipino OFW decides to leave home and work outside his country for good? Or in outer space for good?There has yet got to be some group who will dare spend the rest of their lives as trail balzers into outer space. Just as there are those who dare conquer Mt. Everest without expecting to come back. There are those who sky jump from thousands of feet above the ground accepting the fact that anything can go wrong to both parachutes. There are un-manned crafts that were set to land on an asteroiods and join its yet unplotted journey. We have put a machine buggy into mars to tell us the story out there. Why not put the

Dateline Manila by Bingo P. Dejaresco

T

hirty years ago in 1976, the Philippine Dictator Ferdinand Marcos was fiddling i k e Nero on the walls of Rome – hosting IMF meetings, Miss Universe Beauty con tests and “Thrilla in Manila” at the Araneta. He promised a New Society. America

prided the country as Asia’s showcase of democracy. Thirty years ago in 1976, Vietnam was just shattered into a country of chaos after the Americans and Vietcongs fought a war that neither won nor lost. Only Vietnam suffered; she decided to turn from communism to democracy. Three decades later today, the Philippines’ growth rate exceeds only that of Bangladesh in Asia; Vietnam shows an 8.4% growth rate, the second highest in Asia next to China and beating Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, South Korea and even powerful India. Vietnam has a booming textile industry in a population of 87 million Vietnamese which is almost that of the Philippines – while our textile industry is in

the obituary pages, despite the fact that Filipinos love to wear clothes. Vietnam, a small country now consumes more cement than France, her colonizer for ages which means the construction industry is booming like crazy. The Philippine banking system had just discovered – at least the three enlightened banks – that to spur the housing boom, it must give 25 year term mortgages, despite the banking industry’s bloated, inefficient liquidity. Thirty years after being a democracy, Vietnam is now the darling new tiger of Asia while the Philippines is still debating whether to shift from presidential to parliamentary – to be manned largely by the same people – oligarchs and dynasty members – who were respon-

sible in not making the presidential system work, in the first place. The pace of export growth of Vietnam to the USA exceeds that of China while our export growth is dominated by garments and electronics – which are heavily dependent on imported raw materials. International investors like Intel and Nike are sinking in billions of dollars into Vietnam while the Vietnamese who learned English, got entrepreneurial experience and technical skills abroad – fly home like conquering marauders and get their jobs in dollar values. The Philippines has the real Diaspora – 10 million Filipinos escaping this jobless country – while another one million of OFWs was added to the list this year 2006

most intelligent being instead? Scientists must now envy the vast knowledge of the Voyager-spacecraft which is now billions of miles away, still proceeding, and storing and possibly sending as much knowledge and information, but now, unable to reach such info to earth. Had a man been sent on board, it could yet be a different story. So there should be humans somewhere who are willing to be sent out into deep space forever proceeding, without the possibility of returning, but simply enjoy the ride and their role of reporting what’s really out there. So as we start the new year 2007, we imagine a group of earthlings volunteers who are tired of everything that man is doing, like self-destructing himself , and decide to board the starship Eternity, bound to undertake and endless journey into deep space, and simply be proud to report how far man can travel , and where present or future technology can bring them, just as if they have decided to retire on the starship and make it their actual vehicle as they enter into the everlasting spiritual realm . They would be real “Heroes of Tomorrow Today”. And this futuristic travel could yet be man’s greatest proof that aside from the body, the mind , heart and spirit, man can yet travel endlessly afar, even far beyond his own conceivable universe.

alone. Accountants, HR managers and other professionals in Vietnam are now getting 30 to 50% hike in pay due to scarcity of skilled labor while thousands of Filipinos flock at the Depart-

This means if you invested P1-Million in Vietnamese stocks last year – on average that is worth P2-Million in 12 months-today-while you just meditate on your favorite mantras – doing nothing. Up to 2006, the Philippines who rivaled Japan before World War II in economic terms, some 25-30% of Filipinos still live below the poverty line of US1-dollar a day subsistence (50/ day). From 51% of people below poverty line in 1990,

Vietnam has reduced that to an astonishing 8% in just 16 years. What in James Bond’s name is happening to our country? We depend on Nature to spare us from typhoons to make our agriculture sector grow. NEDA Director Neri himself says there is no political will in making certain sectors undergo the much needed reform, let’s start with power. We have politicized our economic policy-making much too much. We depend on international crude oil price to contain our inflation and lean on OFWs to bolster our international reserves (now at US$22-Billion). In Manila, people rejoice that the Congress had – finally – passed a budge almost a year stale and that Government had –

There is still adventurism in the military – and how in Daniel Craig’s (007) name can the country not solve this longest insurgency war in Southeast Asia which has eaten so much of the military’s budget? The president’s legitimacy is being questioned and there is just too much politics – from the barber shop to Congress to Malacañang. And so much talk – and writing, mea culpa – than live action to solve the nations’s ills. We have all forgotten why God gave us two ears sand two hands and just one tongue. We were meant to listen more, then act than talk like parrots in a

lover’s quarrel. We have an associate Ken (not his real name) who used to be chief accountant for a local firm that skinned crabs and sent the meat in packs to the world from our seas. Today, he is chief financial officer for a Vietnamese firm – highly regarded and handsomely paid as he could even afford to visit Manila monthly (on his pay) as if he was just journeying from Manila to Davao. His Vietnamese employer-firm is asking him to prepare the papers of his family so they can relocate and the kids study in Hanoi. He is our living proof today that something is awfully amiss in our country. Ken, the good-natured, educated and thorough think-

Sunshines and Shadows I was looking forward for a nice long vacation these Christmas holidays, but I ended up in the hospital. I was beginning to get upset and complain, but I can’t lose these few days lying down in a complaint corner. I will have a very valid excuse not to come out on this Sunday column. But as I watched the clouds passing by my window, with different changing patterns and colors, I was reminded that we can see things and patterns from different perspectives.

The latest news is that the GMA administration which is supposed to uphold Philippine sovereignty has succumbed to diplomatic pressures exerted by the United States. There is now a “New Agreement” between US Ambassador Kenny and Philippine Foreign Secretary Romulo, which provides for the detention of convicted Smith at the US Embassy, which Solicitor General Nachura, official counsel of the Philippine Government, considers as a “supervening event” which paves the way for the immediate transfer of Smith to the custody of the United States. It is a good guess that the Court of Appeals will dismiss the petition for certiorari on the issue of custody on the ground that it has now become MOOT and ACADEMIC. Indeed, if international law is law, it is the law of the mighty. A number of writers believe that international law is not a true law “since it is commonly disregarded by States unless obeying it would suit their interests”.

Another point which supports the above view is that there is no legal process to enforce or implement a right of one state which is violated by another. There is no “international sheriff”. The case of People vs. Lance Corporal Daniel Smith (for rape) on the issue of which state (the U.S. or the Philippines) has the right to detain accused Smith during the period that his appeal from a judgment of conviction is pending, which awaits a ruling from the Court of Appeals, may prove that international law is9 Turn to page not a true law.

This is the time of year when we make all sorts of New Year’s Resolutions, some that we intend to keep, and some that are just an expression of good intentions. This is a time of looking ahead to the year coming, a time of anticipation of various joys and sorrows, of challenges and trials. Some of these we have control over; however many times we make our own problems, and we make the problems of others as our own. A few are caused by factors outside our area of influence, or by force majeure. We can look at the heart.

I will stand by the gate, on the balcony or at one of the windows. I have asked her to always look back and find me. She now searches every place for my smile as she rides off. I want her to get into the habit of looking back and trying to finding me. It is important. I have a special reason. A wise man once said, “You live forever if someone remembers your name.” This is my bid for a little immortality. My wife is much younger than I. One of these days, God will call me home and she will be left alone. When the pain of loss fades, she will start down that same road on her motorcycle; by habit she will look back for me. In that moment she will call my name. She will hear me again softly say, “Mahal Kita Walang Iba” and for a brief instant, I will live again in her heart. Who knows, maybe God will let me stand on that balcony and take care of her once again. That would be my heaven.

that it isn’t by bread alone that a man or woman lives, that we have to have something to be proud of that will bolster our self-esteem as a Filipino and convince us that our country is worth the struggle, the tears and the pain and it isn’t some abstract pie in the sky statistic but something beautiful and real that we can hold on to. We do have a reason to have happy holidays because even after everything we have been through, we are still kicking. We not only survive life’s trials – we flourish. We have toiled and succeeded. We managed to come out of the fire with our dignity intact. And what I loved most of all is that despite a hard day, we go home to our families with so much love, we make time to sing our hearts out and we always find a reason to smile and share a laugh. We have a lot to be proud of. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, Filipino.

At the ... From page 8 was at that early that our young minds were geared towards planning our lives, setting goals and standards, making full use of the hours and minutes of our days. ———————————One cannot be expected to live a more fulfilled life without setting priorities and dovetailing these with the time available to us. I know of a very systematic man. Every morning he sets his activities for the day – the people he has to meet, the purpose for meeting them, the end he aims to achieve etc. At the end of the day he checks those he had accomplished and bring forward for the next day those he failed to realize. Needless to say, his days were made. ———————————Incidentally, aside from a diary, do you have a planner in your home? A

I even believe that a judgment against the position that Smith should remain in the custody of the United States until finality of the appealed judgment of conviction would merely be a “paper judgment” incapable of being enforced against the world’s super power. Already, the United States boycotted the scheduled joint military exercise between its army and that of the Philippines. What the United States is starting to do is probably part of a chain of retaliatory measures which it plans to impose upon the Philippines if it does not get what it wants. Resort to forcible measures is actually taking the law into one’s hands. However, it is justified in international relations as a form of “self-help” resorted to by a powerful state to bring a weak state down to its knees. Coercive measures would include severance of diplomatic and commercial relations, which, of course, may be preceded by a suspension of all commercial intercourse. In 1798 the United States suspended all commercial relations with France. In 1809, the United States Congress passed a law which it called the Non-Intercourse Act prohibiting commerce with France. International law is, indeed, the law of the mighty. planner is very important. It is in the planner that you note down important activities on specific dates such as conferences, departure and return on out-of-town trips, social activities such as weddings, birthdays etc. You can also put on the planner what bills are due for payment. Of course, you put in your planner what you expect to accomplish during the month and spread your activities on specific days of the said month. All these must be honed in to your ultimate goal for the year. ———————————— Why don’t we make every day counts starting tomorrow – New Year’s Day – and every day thereafter in 2007? At the end of the year you will be amazed at the grounds you have covered, the full utilization of your days, the things you have done, and the inner satisfaction for being a purposive and productive human being who make things happen.

Farm land dispute leads to shooting Some recipients of a farm land in Basay got the greatest scare of their lives when men who are allegedly their opponents in a dispute for possession of the said property resorted to the use of violence. The victims claim that the suspects Felipe Torillo, Bentoy Torillo, Nabe Luyas, a certain “Bungi” and two other unidentified men armed with long firearms sprayed them with bullets last Thursday. The victims Andrew Sala, Andresito Sala, Jodi Sala, Jose Sala, Billy Sala, Rene Antique and Rowing Jemines scampered to different directions to escape the attack. They immediately reported the incident to the local police who responded in the like manner and recovered one empty shell of a Garrand rifle. Authorities vowed to conduct a deeper probe on the incident to determine the liability of the perpetrators who fled after the incident.

Suspect assaults arresting officer

T

he Tanjay City PNP is poised to file ad ditional charges against a person who assaulted one of its members as they

attempted to arrest him for allegedly beating his

own brother. Fifty-four year old Napoleon Taroja was apprehended by responding policemen inside the Gayo compound after his relatives sought their assistance. However while being handcuffed, the suspect punched PO1 Marlou Ragay injuring the latter. Not contented with that, he also spitted at the officer’s uniform while loudly issuing threats against him. Taroja is now detained at the police station as proper charges are being readied at the city prosecutor’s office.

Bullies molest village visitors

P

erhaps they are just bored, but village thugs in Purok Mutya, Canday-ong Calindagan of this city decided to pick

some fight against two men who were simply not looking for trouble on Christmas day. The victim, Andro Cati-an and his companion Jayneven Cada went to the said place in order to visit their friend Ronilo Perater. Upon learning that Perater has not had any sleep the previous night, they decided to come back at a latter time. However, while they were on their way home about eight men, two of whom were identified as Ariel Quintao and Bobby Ocampo, attacked them by beating and stabbing Cati-an. They only managed to escape with the help of some concerned residents. The victim sustained several stab wounds on his left arm and shoulder while policemen are now pursuing his assailants.

One stabbed dead on Christmas eve

I

t was indeed one unforgettable but bloody Christmas eve for the family of Rusue Alba, 26 years old, after he was stabbed and killed on the very day they are supposed to celebrate the birth of the Savior Jesus Christ. The mother, Lorna Alba related that at about 8:00 PM she fetched her son, who was already drunk, from the village store to go home for noche Buena. However, along the way they met a certain “Doyo Silot” who was immediately embraced by her son claiming that he was a friend, Silot yelled that he was hurt from Alba’s grip. Upon hearing Silot’s allegation, the suspect Fredo Catino stabbed the victim repeatedly. Alba was rushed to the Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital where he expired mainly due to head injuries. Catina voluntary surrendered to the Dumaguete PNP along with the weapon used in the stabbing. He was released the next day for some undisclosed reasons.

Under the code, upon real property tax or installment thereof becoming delinquent, the undersigned is charged to enforce collection of delinquent taxes (20___ and previous year) and for this purpose empowered to resort to any of the following remedies to satisfy taxes, penalties and costs: 1. Seizure of personal property of the taxpayer and sale thereof at public auction; 2. File civil suit with the proper court; 3. Levy on real property and sale of delinquent property or a usable portion thereof at public auction. However, if at any time before any of the above stated remedies is instituted, payment of the delinquent tax or installment thereof and the corresponding penalty hereunder provided is made, it shall free the taxpayer of his property from liability to such auction. Penalty for delinquency: Failure to pay the real property tax during the period of payment without penalty of the quarterly installment thereof shall subject the taxpayer to the payment of interest at the rate of two percent (2%) per month on the unpaid amount or a fraction thereof. Further, unless the tax, surcharges and penalties are paid before the expiration of the year for which the tax is due except when the notice of assessment or special levy is contested administratively or judicially pursuant to the provision of Sec. 226 of R.A. 7160, delinquent real property will be sold at public auction and the title to the property will be vested in the purchaser, subject, however, to the right of the delinquent owner of the property or any person having legal interest therein to redeem the property within one (1) year from the date of sale. DELINQUENT TAXPAYERS are therefore, requested to pay their delinquent tax or installment thereof to forestall the inclusion of their property in the list of delinquent properties to be sold at public auction.

Under the code, upon the real property tax or installment thereof becoming delinquent, the undersigned is charge to enforce collection of delinquent taxes (March 2006 and previous years) and for this purpose empowered to resort to any of the following remedies to satisfy taxes, penalties and costs: 1. Seizure of personal property of the taxpayer and sale thereof at public auction, 2. File civil suit with the proper court, 3. Levy on real property and sale of delinquent property. However, if at any time before any of the above-stated remedies is instituted, payment of the delinquent tax or installment thereof and the corresponding penalty hereunder provided is made, it shall free the taxpayer from liability to such auction. Penalty for delinquency: Failure to pay the real property tax during the period of payment without penalty of the quarterly installment thereof shall subject the taxpayer to the payment of interest at the rate of two percent (2%) per month on the unpaid amount or a fraction thereof. Further, unless the tax, surcharges and penalties are paid before the expiration of the year for which the tax is due except when the notice of assessment or special levy is contested administratively or judicially pursuant to the provisions of Sec.225 of R.A. 7160, delinquent real property tax will be sold at public auction and the title of the property will be vested in the purchaser, subject however, to the right of the delinquent owner of the property or any person having legal interest therein to redeem the property within one (1) year from the date of the sale. DELINQUENT TAXPAYERS are therefore, requested to pay their delinquent tax or installment thereof to forestall the inclusion of their property in the list of delinquent properties to be sold at public auction. (Sgd) PERLISA N. BESARIO Municipal Treasurer NOTE: In case payment has already been made on the above tax delinquency, please inform the municipal treasurer or the provincial/city treasurer of the official receipt of payment.

veryone looks forward to the non working Christmas holidays, these are fun filled days spent with family and friends to celebrate our Lord’s birth.

On Christmas day, I visited a sick friend in the hospital, and realized that for a special group of people, a holiday is just another working day. I saw the doctors, nurses and care givers busy with their medical services to their patients while the rest of the world was out merry making.

As I talked with the nurses, I heard their stories of how they spend Christmas eve and New year’s eve. Ma’am Elgie Milad, Head Nursing Supervisor at the SUMC related how one time one truckload of injured passengers from Siaton arrived at the hospital and all the medical staff were tending the wounded while the churches were ringing in the new year. New Year’s Eve brings its own victims of the firecrackers and all the hospitals in the city prepare to take care of such patients. The emergency room, the different wards of all hospitals will be on full alert while the rest Dr. Haily A. Amorin and Dr. Saturnino Paciencia with other medical staff of us are enjoying our of the emergency ward. noche Buena feast or welcoming the new year in different joyous way. So as we happily look forward to the countdown to close 2006, let us drink a toast of grateful thanks to the invaluable service of the medical personnel all over our city and province; we also remember that there are

sources, our time, our skills and talents with those who need most our help, with those who have less in life than we have. Lots of good advice comes our way. One of my radio program listeners sent me this short verse that I’d like to share with all of you. To me this short piece of advice seems like the ideal way to meet the New Year head on. It goes like this: Remember to forget things that make you sad; Don’t forget to remember things that make you glad. Remember to forget those who are untrue, Don’t forget to remember those who stood by you. Remember to forget troubles that come your way, Don’t forget to remember the blessings of everyday. I was struck by this message … yes, the New Year is a time to look forward, a time of anticipation, but it is also a time to remember and forget. But most of all it is a much needed reminder to take time out to treasure the happy moments, to thank the people who are our friends, and to thank God for the blessings received during the past year. Most of all, I like to think that the new year opens wide a new door for me as it does for each one of us. The new year offers us a fresh path to travel on, an exciting mountain to climb with storms and rainbows along the way. Yes, today is always the first day of the rest of my life. And I resolve to make the most of it, today and every day. Jun and I extend our warmest wishes to all of you for a Joyous and Prosperous New Year 2007!

ike in the years past, there is a designated area where peddlers can display the firecrackers being sold to the public. And the city fire de partment assured that they are closely monitoring these stalls to make sure that the vendors will observe the rules designed to avoid fire disasters. In fact attempts to sell even sparklers in the public market and other business establishments are quickly cut short with the confiscation of the said materials. However, unlike in the ply and the financial difficul- expressed satisfaction over years past, the firecracker ties experienced by almost the report as it would defiindustry is losing.

Thanks to farmers who religiously paid their obligations, now the province has earned Php 331,000 as payment from those who availed with the coconut tree planting program spearheaded by the Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA). It can be recalled that months ago hundreds of coconut seedlings were distributed to farmer beneficiaries. Lately, some 233 bear nuts were also made available to them. However, Mr. Brendan Tramonte of PCA Oriental Negros stressed the need for these farmers to undergo trainings so that they can properly tend to these plants.

growing sex industry is well within our midst. Dumaguete’s conservative community leaders’ contin ued denial of its social impact will one day soon blow up in our faces. Its quite concerning that not enough community support is given to our dedicated health authorities in putting up and maintaining sex workers clinics. Government should lead the way in recognizing the negative implications of an unregulated sex industry. One day, it will come home to roost when husbands, brothers, sisters, even children…will pick up the dreaded Aids virus. By then, it may be too late if we don’t address the problem now. Many countries now regulate the sex trade, not only for health purposes but for the protection of their tourism industries. Prostitution is now legal and well regulated in many countries. Why should we continue to deny its existence

and impact on society? As a growing tourist destination, Oriental Negros by now should have well equipped SEX WORKER CLINICS, Sex Workers Inspectors and regulatory laws to control and regulate the growing 1000 or so sex workers plying their trade on our streets everyday. Sex workers need to be recognized and regulated and not be hidden or denied. Whether we like it or not, they are part and parcel of our social and economic life. I challenge our leaders to quickly address this issue now! Have a nice day and Happy New Year to everyone! * * * * * * * EXTRAJUDICIAL SETTLEMENT OF ESTATE AND SALE

It could be the cold breeze or he was simply just caught up with the mood of the season but Mayor Baltazar Salma of Tanjay City sounded more like a priest than a politician when he asked for forgiveness for all those he had wronged. And along with it he extended “full pardon” to all of those who ill-treated him. But as to what misdeeds he might be referring to left his audience guessing. He proceeded to lecture the crowd composed of city hall officials and employees who celebrated their Christmas party recently that the message of the season is for every one to be humble pointing out that God Himself chose to be born in manger to show the world what humility is. Indeed, the good mayor has a reason to be very humble and forgiving these days since only the prayers of his supporters and constituents may have helped him to recover miraculously quickly from his illness.

Mainly taken from the fund released by the Depart ment of Energy to the provincial government, some Php 5.3 million was extended to NORECO 1 to improve the power lines of some far flung villages in Bais City and Mabinay. This came after Governor George Arnaiz released Php 5.4 million to other barangays last month for the same purpose. Barangay Cambagahan of Bais City is allotted Php 3 million pesos, while Barangays Cansal-ing and Tara of Mabinay were apportioned Php 954,000 and P 1.06 million respectively. It is expected that with this electrification project of the province, NORECO 1 can improve its services and extend even to the hinterlands that could greatly improve the lives of the inhabitants there and allow them to feel that they have a government that cares.

Arnaiz acknowledged mentors’ support He is not only generous in providing material assistance to his subordinates, he is also generous in giving credit to where it is due. Like a true statesman, Governor George Arnaiz did not take the spotlight by himself after he was chosen as the Outstanding Governor of the Philippines this year. Instead he shared it especially with the people who mold the future of this nation, the mentors. For three consecutive years, the province under his leadership won the Galing Pook Award for sustaining laudable programs like the Barangay Agricultural DeTurn to page 23 velopment Center, Inter-Local Health Zone

Jerusalem to look for him. After three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions, and all who heard him were astounded at his understanding and his answers. When his parents saw him, they were astonished, and his mother said to him, “Son, why have you done this to us? Your father and I have been looking for you with great anxiety.” And he said to them, “Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?” But they did not understand what he said to them. He went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them; and his mother kept all these things in her heart. And Jesus advanced [in] wisdom and age and favor before God and man. Let us pray today for all families that each member will grow in love for one another and that each would have the strength and grace to fulfill all that it means to be members of one family. The health of a society can be directly measured by the health of the family unit since that is the basic building block of society. Let us also pray that the governments of the world will enact laws that protect the rights of the family and promote its growth by enacting laws that will support the basic family structure.

Philippine Overseas Employment Agency (POEA) warned Filipinos planning to work abroad from succumbing to jobs advertised on the internet by illegal recruitment agencies. As a precaution, the agency issued the following guidelines to avoid fraud: • Read the entirety of the website. Examine whether the company name and profile appear to be believable. Check its company profile or the “About Us” page to see its office location and numbers. • Examine the website design plus all links and pages available. A legitimate company would not mind spending for a website designed beautifully as the same serves as the business’ window to the world. • Take note of the website’s invitations to send resumes and application papers through

Most suspicious sites offer “too-good-to-be-true” salaries and other job perks including accommodation and bonuses. • Check the domain name of the website to secure additional information. • Report to the POEA or other law enforcement authorities any illegal recruitment activities conducted through the Internet. It has been noted that there is an increase in the number of people who applied online and yet became victims illegal recruiters. Apparently, these personalities advertise in legitimate online job search companies or join some forums that are visited by employment seekers. Only licensed recruitment agencies are allowed to advertise job vacancies on their own websites or any online job search engines but since advertising for employment online is still considered as act of recruitment hence only lawfully authorized organizations and those licensed by the POEA are allowed to carry out such activity.

A check with the sala of the Drugs Court, indicated there are now 232 pending drug cases in Negros Oriental of whom 90 cases were left undesposed by Tan’ and inherited from his predecessor This list used to be 296 cases total “inherited drug cases.” In the same vein, the 2006 drug score has just left behind 33 cases filed in 2005 and this year,,some 109 new drug cases have been filed before the sala of Judge Tan. To differentiate Acqquitals from Dismissals, Judge Tan explained that those whose drug cases were acquitted has undergone full trial and the outcome mostly based on reasonable doubt or insufficiency of evidence.

But this time, only farm-to-market-products are sold as early as 3am on designated days along a downtown street near the market because farmers themselves can sell their goods at a lower price minus the brokers. They remove their wares by 6am to give way to normal traffic along Sta Rosa st. But the problem ensued: SANITATION> There was no comfort room provided by the city. People urinate and close to defecate in the area. They do not usually remove their trash. Soon, market vendors joined them just to get a quick sales. Prices are usually lower at the flea market called “Paunay” because they are sold directly by farmers producers, minus the middlemen. Inside market sales come from many middlemen, thus the prices are higher. Thus, consumers like the Paunay market since the products are also farm-fresh mostly. The issue of “free trade” ensued in Thursday’s public hearing in that restricting the farmers to sell their wares is a restraint of trade. However, some kagawads countered saying, selling is not prohibited, but rules have to be followed in the exercise of regulation. Otherwise, anybody can just sell anywhere? There is a city ordinance No. 7 series of 1999 which allows paunay vendors to sell their wares at dawn and vacate the area by 6am to allow normal traffic to flow. As it stands, a win-win situation is being pursued and studied by the Sanggunian. Such a solution must restore a Paunay market near enough to the central market, which is to open at dawn up to 6am, and offer farmfresh products and low prices to consumers.

FR. ROY

But this business of having to begin and begin again, highlighted by the New Year’s Day, should make us more aware of the deeper importance of this task. It should remind us of our duty to renew ourselves. Truth is we need to renew ourselves deeply and thoroughly, not only uperficially and partially! This should not just be an idea, a slogan or a routine. It has to be an all-embracing program of life and a functional life-long strategy. To begin again is not just a matter of CIMAGALA course. That is to say, remove the hype that accompanies it, there is really nothing in it. To begin again is a grave human ne-

life. With every new beginning, it’s like we’re making another winding of our earthly spiral to catapult us to eternity. For this, we have to understand that what is involved is not just purely human and natural things. What is involved is the renewal of our soul, that it conforms more and more to its spiritual nature and supernatural end. That is to say that our renewal should not just be cosmetic, skin-deep, pegged, nailed and tacked to external appearances and earthly things only. It has to plumb the depths of our heart. Our heart should not be dominated only by the material and temporal. It

has to be liberated from these confinements, and made to freely beat its proper lifeblood. And that’s none other than God. Its proper language is love, it is self-giving, the one Christ lived and commanded us to do. It is not self centeredness or greed. It is giving of oneself. Its food is the truth, ultimately found in doing the will of God, again as Christ said and fulfilled especially with his death on the Cross. “My food is to do will of him who sent me.” (Jn 4,34) In short, to achieve our goal of loving God truly, we have to understand that this means that our freedom is fully expressed only

cessity that springs not only from our nature but also from our belief that we are meant for a supernatural destination. Yes, dearie and sweetie, that’s just how the cookie crumbles in our life and world. Physically and externally, we may not be able avoid the effects of time and the onslaught of old-age. But deep within us, there is something that’s supposed not to age and die. That is the reason for this business of ours to begin and begin again. We are supposed to prepare ourselves in this life for that leap to eternal

when lived in obedience to God’s will, when our freedom is so tied to our obedience to God that both mean the same thing to us. This is the purpose of our continuing renewal in this life. For Christian believers, to pursue this renewal outside of this context would be foolishness and a pure waste of time. Many New Years will come our way, bringing in things big and small, new and old. Whatever combination of things each new year may bring, we should not forget the real purpose of this cycle. It is to bring about another renewal, a winding of that spiral that launches us to eternal supernatural life with God. And this renewal can-

not be stopped even by our own sins, failures and mistakes, which can be expected to come. Our Father God is endlessly merciful, and as long as we play the prodigal son always, we can expect God’s mercy to be given to us. It is his joy to do this. On our part, we should realize then that our own failures and mistakes, our weaknesses and difficulties need not separate us from God. They precisely can be the occasion to bring us closer to him, in a way that is even more intimate since we would be asking for his help and his forgiveness.

Knock and it shall be opened Dr. PROCESO UDARBE to you. Luke 11:9 One scenery that makes Silliman University a beautiful spot is its gates. The large ones that are at the entrance into the university from the city are called the Gates of Opportunity. They remind me of the doors of life that are described in the New Testament. Students enter the gates of opportunity, and after their sojourn within the gates for about four years, they go out into life in the big, big world. Some years ago, I preached on the subject “Locked in a Room with Open Doors.” A Pakistani Muslim student had heard it because he had joined our Church as a member, and had heard our sermons. Three years later, he came for a visit, and I was glad to hear him say that of my sermons, he liked most “Locked in a Room with Open Doors.” He said it made him reflect more deeply on life’s open doors of opportunity for self improvement, for the deepening of his faith in God and himself, Turn to page 21 and for his availability

HISTORICAL NOTES BY: REV. FR. ROMAN C. SAGUN. JR. Also for Businessmen and Professionals:

Stay On-Line with God First Hour By: Os Hillman Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in You. Show me the way I should go, for to You I lift up my soul. – Psalm 143:8 Two of the greatest inventions of my time has been the laptop computer and e-mail. The laptop means I no longer have to stay in one place to be productive in my business life. E-mail has allowed me to stay connected to people all around the world with the touch of a button. My greatest frustration is when either of these does not work. Sometimes e-mail cannot be used because I can’t get a connection. Sometimes I cannot use my laptop because I have not properly charged it, and then the charge runs out while I am on an airplane. Both of these situations mean I am unable to tap into the resource that allows me to fulfill my calling in my work to the fullest. The morning time with God is much like these situations. God pours His Word into my spirit, and I am recharged. This recharging has an important effect on my day. It allows me the greatest opportunity to hear the small voice that directs my steps. If I refuse to “get connected,” I risk following my own ways of fulfilling the duties of my day. It sets forth the opportunity for God to speak into my spirit what He desires for me each day. It allows me to focus on God’s purposes, not mine. The only way to know someone is to spend time with him or her. The only way to discern the voice of another is to hear that person’s voice. David, the author of this psalm, was a warrior, king, and businessman. He understood this principle of connecting with God in the morning. His morning allowed him to connect with God’s love, renew his trust in Him, and hear His directions for his life. Shouldn’t you and I do the same.

A side from the Philippine National Library, Ateneo de Manila University’s main library has a rich collection of Filipiniana materials. Its building in the sprawling Loyola Heights campus in Quezon City is named after the Philippines’ foremost hero and Ateneo alumnus, Dr. Jose P. Rizal. Thanks to Maritess Villanueva, the head of the Filipiniana Division, a photocopy of Rizal’s travel diaries between 1892 and 1896 was furnished to us. One of these diaries is titled “Diario de Viaje. De Dapitan a Barcelona. 64 dias sin tocar tierra. De Barcelona a Manila.” (31 July – 6 October 1896, 64 Days without touching land.) For the month of July 1892, Rizal made this note in his diary: “In the afternoon of the 14th, Thursday, about 5:30 or 6:00 o’clock, the (Governor’s) nephew came to inform me (at Fort Santiago) that I was to leave for Dapitan at 10:00 that night.” Brought under heavy guard to the steamer Cebu, he also noted down that the boat left Manila at 1:00 in the early morning of Friday, the 15th. The vessel was under the command of a certain Captain Delgras. After identifying the other passengers in the expedition, he wrote this brief notice: “We sailed along

Tizon per Doc. No. 127, Page No. 24, Book No. VI, Series of 2005 of Notary Public Atty. Patrick Flaubert U. Gaitera. The Negros Chronicle Dec. 24, 31, 2006 & Jan. 7, 2007

As we face the New Year once again, let us look at God’s wide open doors. In life’s open doors into life, nothing will come of nothing. Nothing will come of nothing if we don’t heed the words: “Knock and it shall be opened unto you.” We are proud of the Gates of Opportunity, open to students who come in by the thousands every year. One of the most beautiful university events is Commencement when the graduates carry with them the mantle of education. But for many it has not always been easy. These young people went through the rigors of work. And in our days of high unemployment rate they see themselves face to face with closed doors. But nothing will come of nothing. God has put a world in our fumbling hands – our hands. He filled them with all we could ask for or think. He filled his world with the possibility of miracles. He has set us on the high road with the knowledge of good and evil, truth and error, guided by the miracle of conscience. Therefore we go forth from the gates of opportunity to the world of opportunity. For God has given us secret powers hidden in ourselves. So we pay heed to the call of Christ: “Ask and it shall be given you; seek and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you.” There are a good number of people we have admired for responding to open doors – Amorsolo, Salonga, Flavier, Dr. Joven Cuanang – foremost neurologist in our country – Sister Christine Tan who stood her ground against dishonest public servants. But there are lesser mortals, lesser-known that have been blessed by the gift of the open door. There are taxi drivers who have faced the door of honesty and we honor them. There public servants who have remained poor but satisfied that they have kept their integrity. By the way, it was G.T. Chesterton who said something that is most comforting – that “nothing succeeds like failure.” In the midst of scarcity of funds or shadow of pain, frustration, sometimes defeat, we perceive these as times when we welcome Jesus into our lives that he can crowd out our fears, our laziness, our scarcity.

was out of the city attending a family member’s funeral at that time. To heap more misery on the family, there was a repeat attempt to break into the house by kicking the kitchen door. Fortunately, this second attempt was unsuccessful and the repeat-offenders were deterred from entering. A call on the police department did not seem to warrant the department’s attention at that time. I understand that similar attempts have been made on other Silliman campus residences as well. When Atty. Reuben R. Canoy, a Silliman alumnus by the way, was City Mayor of Cagayan de Oro, I was appointed Chief Mayor’s Deputy, so I am familiar with how the city government works. Per news reports, these crimes are traced to the growing drug problem, the increase in population and the lack of livelihood for a great number of residents. Certainly, these problems cannot be solved overnight, and I am sure steps have been taken to find solutions to these issues. Whatever solutions have been offered and tried, city leaders need to continue its search for better, appropriate and effective ones. By now, I’m certain ( I suppose so) that you have already organized task forces/community safety committees and advisory groups that include representatives from various sectors in the community: institutions of higher learning, local businessmen and women, civic organizations, existing religious groups, barangay captains, peace officers, the media, the military and other interested groups. As community residents, they are the best source of suggestions regarding possible practical solutions to these issues confronting the city, as they have a huge stake in its welfare. As a city leader, politician and a long-standing area resident, it would be extremely unwise to: ignore these problems, as this neglect would lead prospective investors, resident returnees and tourists to cancel, shun and eventually turn away from Dumaguete. Can the local leadership really afford to lose city revenues brought into the economy with this continued apathy, and lack of immediate appropriate action? I consider Dumaguete my “home city” as I spent 17 of my growing years there. I received my Christian education at Silliman University, and my family owns a home along Cervantes Street for over 40 years. So we pay real property taxes to your city government. I played on the capitol grounds as a child and spent many memorable years at its restaurants, stores and beaches, especially the campus of Silliman University . I left Dumaguete several times these many years by plane, by bus and by boat. But my heart never ceases to swell with happiness, when the “Horns of Negros” come into view in the horizon and I am able to decipher the Gates of Opportunity, with the white outline of the Silliman Church in the background. Just as the feeling of sadness hangs over me when I depart from my “fair city”. It is comforting to know that we can restore our city back to its peaceful state provided— the residents and those who care, join hands to make this happen! We’re Taking our City Back!!!!! Very truly yours,

The route of that maritime journey seems rather unusual. At that period time, a ship carrying mail bound for Southwestern Philippines followed this usual route: ManilaRomblon-Iloilo-DapitanDumaguete-Cebu-IloiloRomblon-Manila. One way from Dapitan back to Manila took 6 to 7 days. Moreover, Rizal had also a vivid account of the place and people of Dumaguete in his diary of 1 August 1896. “I went ashore with my family and the politico-military commandant (Captain Ricardo Carnicero). I told my family to see the town while the commandant and I paid our respects to Governor Regal whom I had met at Dapitan on his way to his seat of government.” That he had met Governor Emilio Regal (1895-1897) in

Dapitan “on his way to his seat of government (de paso para su gobierno)” suggests that by boat the Governor reached the capital town of Oriental Negros via Dapitan. While on board the steamer EspaÔa, Rizal went on to write about his stopover in Dumaguete. “I went to visit this gentleman (Provincial Judge Faustino Herrero Regidor) who received me very affectionately, inviting me and my family to spend the day with him…I called on the house of Mrs. Rufina (the wife of Mr. Geronimo de la PeÔa), a beautiful house, where after four years, I heard for the first time the piano played and wellplayed at that.” Considering his situation with foreboding in the fourth quarter of that year, the foremost national hero would have suffered from a lapse of memory while actually touching land in Dumaguete in 1896, and not in 1892.

HOW MEDIA SEES IT, AND NOT OTHERS (From page 2) the government payroll in behalf of the poor employee who had to advance the money for the family, courtesy of the lending firm. Mind you, this is not allowed by labor laws. Yet it is being circumvented, and is done most of the time . Well, our cash strapped and financially hogtied employees have no choice. But they got their money all right less interest to the lending firm. Two schools of thought here: lending should be resorted to, only to fill an urgent need. If it means four days awaiting, it might be worth the discipline to wait, instead of rushing to the lending firms for some quick money. As the good superintendent of schools says, the bottom line of this lending and borrowing habit is to practice the virtue of thrift, and discipline. Unless the employees know how to handle financial crisis management, it looks like They will always be a happy triumvirate: the government agency, the lending firm, and the poor employee. So the economy is improving. The rich and the moneyed prosper, while the end consumer at the bottom is getting poorer because , by their name alone, as consumers, they simply consume. They will never earn unless they too will exercise a little prudence, discipline and tact in their spending , and their keeping-up-with-the-joneses lifestyle. TAIWAN EARTHQAKE Affected our website. We were not alone after all, but millions. If you noticed that our website came out late, it was how extensive the internet damage was done by the Taiwan earthquake. It’s back, but coming back slowly. It still bogs down just like that at times. But better late than never. Millions of frustrated Internet users across Asia slowly regained access to overseas websites on Friday, three days after an earthquake off the coast of Taiwan snapped several vital undersea cables. Telecoms operators across the region re-routed Internet links to circumvent the ruptured lines off the southern part of the island, as engineers donned diving suits to assess the damage and begin repairs. Filipinos were asked to limit their overseas calls to family and friends just for the New Year. But customers in the Philippines have been asked to play their part too — by limiting overseas calls to family and friends over the New Year. The most affected internet servers were in Taiwan. Pardon our website if it came out late because this earthwake in Taiwan, it has affected the internet traffic worldwide.

in the local tax code which the CHRONCILE exposed even as the provincial board had earlier disapproved such illegal cockfighting ordinance called Tigbakay. Instead the Dept of Justice lauded the NEGROS CHRONICLE editor for “being moved by his sense of civic duty and prodded by his sense of responsibility as a newspaperman, proceeded to report what he believed to be in good faith, matters of public concern and of general interest.”

6. GOVERNOR TOPS IN RP

Governor George Arnaiz bested two other governors of Bohol and Capis and was cited as the most outstanding governor in the 2006 local Government Leadership Awards as they were honored at the Senate. His winning feat was in sustaining agriculture and rural development as a joint project of Oriental and Occidental Negros. He caused the estasblishment of the first drug rehabilitation center and expanded the coverage of the provincial hospital with additional two storeys in its buildings plus the construction on-going of an ambitious 1000-seater air-conditioned provincial convention center which will set the pace in making this tourist hub, a convention center of the south.

7 FIRST BIO-DIESEL PRODUCTION

The City of Bayawan has announced it capability to produce bio-diesel fuel as an alternative fuel to run the engines of all its government units starting early 2007. The raw materials for biodiesel was explained to the governor by the Bayawan city mayor saying that it is agriculture-based plant of taba taba that is converted into bio diesel, including coconut oil which is processed locally and converted into bio-diesel. Bayawan says, it can produce 3000 liters a day which is the consumption of its convoy of government vehicles.

8. BACONG AND TANJAY’S POLITICS

As election year approaches, two mayors are at odds with their respective vice mayors in a bid to run or the highest seat of the city of Tanjay and the town of BAcong. As typical as it can be, for once, the mayor asked his vice mayor to takeover for one term. But when election comes, both have decided to run for mayor, prompting their old mayors to retake their positions to no avail. Thus, a bitter fight awaits them in the next elections. HEADLINE: Mayor wants to retake town hall from vice mayor.

9. EDUCATION

The premier University of the province, Silliman U, has installed its 12th President in the person of Dr. Ben Malayang, the youngest (at 38) president of Silliman Unviersity, a former American school founded in 1901. Although a true blue Sillimanian , he finished his college studies at UP. He is the son of Atty Sammy Malaayang, former SU alumni affairs director.

The boxer from Sibulan whom local trainors refused to support , got his training in Cebu instead and rose to international fame. Yet, Jimrex Jaca of Sibulan came home to mother after winning a bloody seven rounds against Hector Marquez of Mexico in July during their mano a mano fight at home base ARaneta Coliseum. It is indeed nice and proud to hear your province announced throughout the world boxing coverage of the fight whose main event was that or Manny Pacman Pacquiao. And it was Jaca who brought Sibulan Negros Oriental, Philippines into the map of world boxing sensation at least for one moment in time.

Subject: Re:DUMAGUETE Dear Mr. EDITOR —

Please publish this OPEN E-MAIL that I received, and is circulating all over the World, among Dumaguetenos and Silliman Alumni all over the globe through the Negros Chronicle. Like the many who once lived in Dumaguete and entered the portals of Silliman, I am concerned of the city’s safety and image. I hope the current mayor stops spinning how everything in Dumaguete is just fine. This is not a time for deception and lies. He must confront and solve the problem. week.

1623 Mercoal Drive Spring, Texas 77386 December 10, 2006 City Mayor Agustin Perdices 6200 Dumaguete City , Philippines Subject: Growing Criminality in Dumaguete Dear Honorable Mayor: It is with great concern and consternation to learn that criminality in Dumaguete City has multiplied unabated. Internet news in the area details this. Articles in the Negros Chronicle and even overseas calls from returning residents, as well as internet information-sharing by US-based SU alumni and Dumaguetnons all focus on this. Letters from Dumaguete relatives all emphasize these frightening incidents and warn us to arm ourselves adequately should we ever plan to return home ! Imagine! Coming from a long-standing Dumaguete family who is now the elected city leader, I am sure this is a grave issue that concerns you most. Several possible investors who plan to return are weighing the dangers facing them upon their return. This concern serves as a deterrent to those who plan to invest in businesses and properties allowing the economic improvement and viability of Dumaguete. For one, a family property located in a long-established housing area like Amigo Subdivision, and fenced off with a 5-foot plus concrete CHB was broken into and a computer stolen. The family

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.

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.

TEN TOP STORIES of

2006

SADDAM EXECUTED Yesterday

BREAKING NEWS: For his proven genocide of co-Muslims who defied his dictatorial policies, the iron hand of Iraq was executed by his own people , by a verdict to die by hanging yesterday. This foto of BBC was Saddam’s last few minutes on earth as his neck was tied to the gallows by a hooded Iraqi. He refused to cover his head with a hood.

1 EXTRAJUDICIAL KILLINGS

At no time in Negros Oriental’s history has there been an unprecedented number of extra-judicial killings in Dumaguete capital city , which in short means summary execution outside the courts of justice vigilante style . Most of the victims were known drug pedders, snatchers, ex convicts in short those who have records of repeated law violations. But there were also killings of students, rape with homicides, policemen, and such unsolved high profile murders as those of the city treasurer, prosecutor’s chief of staff, customs official, the latest of whom was a Bais policeman and his son and followed by an ambush killing of its suspects who were set to be exonerated by the prosecutors. Only one rape suspect-killer was arrested in all these summary executions virtually in the whole year of 2006.

2 BANK ROBBERIES

It became an issue why big depositors from small towns are easy targets of robbery-holdups in local banks. The ban of cellphone use inside banks is now up in the City ‘council hoping that inside-jobs and intruders suspects could be eliminated. But banks also want to protect big clients who demand such amenities. At least three baikbayans who withdrew a huge sum were immediately abushed and robbed outside the bank. How could the robbers know the precise moment of exit and entry of the victims without any communication from inside the bank?

3. DRUG COURT HURDLES

The local Drugs Court has convicted 66 people of whom 32 were given life sentences this year even as ten others were given reclusion perpetual sentences last year-end. However, the same drug court acquitted 36 drug suspects and dismissed 52 accused for having been granted their motions to quash, the evidence being weak. It was admitted that 80% of index crimes committed in Negros Oriental were drug-related. This means that criminals no longer take liquor before committing a crime. They now take drugs. (See page 1)

4 BARANGAY FUND ANOMALIES.

The over 100thousand barangay constituents of the city’s 30 baranagays were shocked to know from the Commission on Audit that there had been massive mis-use and or abuse of barangay funds during the past years and that P2.4million in public funds were not yet liquidated by most barangay captains since 2005 yet and this does not include this year-ending 2006. As a result, the COA recommended the dismissal of at east three barangay treasurers, and until today onlyone has been replaced. Surprisingly or expectedly, the local political leadership in city hall have kept distance from the controversy, since 2007 is an election. If they sack their barangay captains, they will lose many poll leaders. But the constituents are adamant that the COA should pursue the cleanup of the handlers of barangay coffers.

5 DOJ UPHOLDS PRESS FREEDOM

The Department of Justice has ordered the city prosecutor to dismiss the libel charges filed by a city council Samuel Dicen against the NEGROS CHRONICLE editor for criticizing the unsuriptitious insertion of illegal cockfighting Turn toprovisions page 22
