T

his time, it’s the turn of the lowly policeman in uniform to air his laments, problems, woes, and concerns in the performance of his duties as peacekeepers in the community, aired before high officials of the National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM).

Regional Director Atty. Bernie Calibo last Wednesday reciprocated the police officers and men of Negros Oriental by assuring them that their problems will be attended to with dispatch. The police personnel among others on

Wednesday’s dialogue held at the former Blue Wave Hotel and Restaurant in Agan-an aired the following as among their top concerns if not problems: First, are harassment cases filed against them while in the pursuit of their

assignments. They lamented that many of them have to hire their own lawyers in order to secure an immediate defense pleading to the many unfounded accusations against them especially by those whom they have either arrested or

caused the implementation of the law. NAPOLCOM said that while there is a legal department ready to help and defend policemen accused in various harassment cases, Calibo said there is a need to evaluate each case which if meritorious can only secure NAPOLCOM assistance. It is in the evaluation of so many of such cases that cause the delay and as such, the PNP personnel subject of harassment has no time and recourse but to hire private defendant-counsels. Second, in the matter of speedy processing of their personnel papers including those who are retiring. PNP personnel said that they oftentimes resort to personal loans from loan sharks and lending institutions because company money even as

Moreover, he filed administrative and criminal charges for malversation of public funds against Sumagka before the Provincial Prosecutor’s Office on Jan. 11, and later to the Ombudsman on Jan 31. Sumagka, claims he does not know of any cash shortage and denied any involvement in the release of P1.8 million cash advances reportedly to unnamed officials of the municipality of Bacong.

So what were and are erstwhile good programmed mission and vision projects of both public and private corporate bodies could yet become spoiled, poisonous food because there simply is absence of team-play. Even corporate cooking needs teamplay. There are many coaches , most likely the team will lose the game.

However, he qualified that there should be noi reclamastion. The PPA has diverted P168-million twice, for the Dumaguete pier reclamation because of the vehement objection of Silliman Unviersity et al.

A

lthough still subject to ground verification, recent land satellite data show a marked increase in forest cover in Negros Oriental of about four to five percent, says Community Environment and Natural Resources Officer Charlie Fabre, in a Kapihan forum held to mark Environment Month this June. This means more trees are now growing in Negros Oriental. Earlier satellite data from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) have shown the apparent deterioration of greenery in the province down to 3%, which according to Fabre worsened in 1987 after the government cancelled the logging concession in the country in 1980.

t is now safe to travel in Negros Island and anywhere in the country. Philippines scored a small victory after the US State Department announced in its 2006 Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report that Philippines has been removed from their Tier 2 Watch List . This developed after the Philippine government implemented strategies to combat trafficking in persons in the country. The US State Department annually releases the TIP report wherein it classifies each country depending on the concrete actions taken by the government to combat the trafficking problem. The 150-country report is the most comprehensive worldwide report on the efforts of governments to combat “severe forms of trafficking in persons,” or modern-day human slavery.

ELUSIVE Freedom Militant groups like Bayan, AnakBayan, and Kilusang Mayo Uno are steadfast on their claim that the Freedom Day celebration tomorrow June 12, in the Philippines is a farce because until today they are enslaved by the dictators of armed conflict, poverty, corruption, and trafficking of humans among many other dastasrdly crimes against the People.

Where teachers have no pay for their own transportation to the mountains, no pay for their food, and spend most of their salaries in repaying mounting loan obligations? You expect quality education for our children? No wonder, we have thousands of JOBLESS GRADUATES. So what is the use of schools when jobs are open only for the well-educated, and the well-connected? SUGGESTION: Abolish all ill-equipped schools . Spend for one or two big quality educational centers (of excellence) in each town, assign all teachers there on rotation and three-shifts basis if possible, buy school buses for our mountain kids for schooling downtown, and impose strict discipline and quality education. Looks like we are going somewhere under these conditions. But not until then. ON ENVIRONMENT. Government spends billions for reforestation. Negros Oriental improved on this by 5% last year, congratulations. Selected logging is now banned. But consider this: how many of our re-planted forests have actually re-grown trees? How much is the mortality? We talk of progress, yet even the Dumaguete pier has not afforded what it promised, a big decent passenger terminal for our sea travelers simply because of some “environmental concerns?” We talk of clean-air and its laws. But how come thousands of tricycles and buses with poisonous emissions are allowed to ply the roads? Instead, we talk about trust funds for the trike drivers while they all pollute our air, and nobody is impounding them? We talk about clean sea waters, yet we pour all of Dumaguete’s waste into the boulevard? Clean water? Garbage disposal? You call the award-winning Candau-ay garbage dumpsite environment friendly? How then is un-friendly environment described? Turn to page 3

NAPOLCOM ... Court Verdict ... From page 1 benefits come very late. Policies in the matter of assignments of PNP personnel were also discussed specially those who allegedly commit infractions and misdemeanors. If those affected are big wigs, they have a big chance of being transferred immediately or in the next weeks depending on whose foot a PNP steps on, wittingly or unwittingly. There was also this fiasco between the Pamplona police and Bacolod NBI, in the matter of the arrest and or investigation of some Pamplona personalities. The PNP personnel appealed so as to speed up the wheels of justice, even as they had some misdemeanors while in the performace of duty. Boredom in the course of traditional assignments as guards allegedly make many very unproductive while doing nothing except to guard their posts especially at peace time. They also sought equal human rights protection because in the process of their assignment and duties, when they encounter aggressive militants, in most likelihood, the PNP are accused of human rights violations not to mention the fact that it is they who are instead victims of such human rights abuses.

He said he cannot compromise between legal and what is illegal. Meanwhile, amend-author Kag. Samuel Dicen also told the council that his ordinance is simply to “give LIFE to the tricycle industry” and not to kill it by repealing the law which he amends by providing a trust fund which is 70% of the new increased fees. Kag Antonio said that if all 3000 tricycle drivers and operators will avail of the trust fund, each could only get P700 which cannot “give life to the tricycle business any.” Erames declined to comment beyond what he reiterated in his piece in an SP privilege speech last Thursday. But he added earlier that if open to a media public debate, he was sure that the illegal ordinance will be junked by the riding public because it would surely mean a super-increase in tricycle fares in the city.

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

You talk of over-population, yet babies are coming out like anything in this country. Church is against contraceptives yet many if not most catholic women are using these artificial methods. You can go on, and on, and on about these socio-cultural realities in our country today. ON BUREAUCRACY. We have a bloated government burxeaucracy. No less than Finance Sec. Gary Teves has been howling about its need for a major overhaul. No dice. You look at government offices, they are full of political protégées. No wonder we do not see a prevailing efficiency and professionalism. Chances are, when you transact with government offices, one or three are either absent, out on snacks, out in the field, out on official business, fourth is simply on awol. Try it. So how can you efficiently run a government whose employees are mostly casuals. Here’s why casuals. Appointing officers do not fill up all high permanent positions who have strict qualifications. So its budget is described as “savings.” At the expense of an efficient bureaucracy? Instead, casuals who are election-supporters are appointed on whimsical terms. Whimsical means, on loyalty basis, which means, being on-call during election season for backdoor campaigning. This is why most government offices are teeming with unqualified casuals who are political protégées, pay-back for election support of appointing powers. It goes up the ladder even up to Malacañang. That is our “utang na loob” culture and it will be used and abused until a major change in our government system is effected. But why is Tarpolano, now called Tarpuline in the States, doing well? He used to be jobless here, that’s why he went abroad for a job. Now he is earning dollars, and soon, after 20 years of saving hard-earned money abroad, he comes home, builds a mansion, and lives like a king. Is this how Filipinos should progress? But why are politicians not leaving for jobs abroad? There must be enough sources of funds being in government, because politicians do not even want to leave their high elective posts. They just want to swap positions under the guise of “political coalition.” Who is being fooled here? SPILL OVER STAGE. We are 15 to 20 years behind Bohol in tourism development. We used to be equal, but now, we are two decades behind. Try visiting my homeland. Panglao island alone is teeming with mansions of OFWs and tourists, and beach resorts. Bohol,specifically Panglao, is now the new Boracay. With a million tourists visiting Panglao last year, let’s admit, we are just starting to get the spill-overs from Bohol, like when Bohol was first getting the spill overs from Cebu. Let’s be fair as ask why Bohol? Because Bohol at first, was willing to absorb the spill-overs of Cebu. Bohol suffered and endured Cebu’s spill over for years until it developed and improved itself by learning from their mistakes. Now Cebu is “burned out.” Too saturated and urbanized. Their hotels are starting to use artificial sand, even importing white sand from Bohol in barges. So Cebu’s tourism hey days are over. The tourists are now shifting to Bohol. And their stakeholders have started to mature. Last year, one million tourists visited Bohol. Ours here, a couple of hundred thousands more or less. But let us learn from Bohol’s experience. Let us first absorb their spill overs. Until we grow and learn from our tourism mistakes, like passing on tourism problems to PAMB. These are growing pains, and we’ll get over it. Visitors even say we have better tourism potentials here than Bohol. Yet we have not yet awaken from our sweet slumber as a former sweet sugalandia. People here at sometime, thought sugar was everything. Now it’s all no more. It’s now called VOS sugarlandia. AsK DAR people what VOS means. TOURIST’S COMPLAINTS. Last Wednesday, a German tourist complained in writing, came to our editorial offices and asked, why he was asked to pay P100 entrance fee for nature watching at Lake Balinsasayao while his lady companion only P10. He howled racism! And lo and behold, how did the capitol tourism office handle such complaint? Try reading it in this issue somewhere, and know the real score. You might just be shocked! Tourism anyone? What did you say? We suggest that all entrance fees be uniform, maybe P50. for everybody, so our visitors especially the firsttimers will have a good impression, and not think of discrimination. This will encourage more and more visitors, thus boost tourism income. WHAT’S TOURISM,ANYWAY? You see, tourism is about pleasing, and pampering our visitors, not passing on their complaints to other non-tourism agencies like PAMB which is very, very “un-tourismlike,” if there is such a word. In medical parlance, tourism is like-letting your tourist take placebo just to make them feel good. In other countries, where we visited , tourists are pampered—of course,—— so that they will spend more, and return, and tell other friends to come. If you pass complaints to a non-tourism oriented body like PAMB, and you do this many times, who is the tourist who will come and come back? You’ll lose more tourists faster than you can develop your destination. Common sense. No need for a doctorate degree.

Editorial 108th Freedom Day: a Nation enslaved by modern-day bondage

Guesting at DYEM FM

Eligible Bachelors at Work.

th

As our Nation enters its 108 year in celebration of our ancestry’s blood-earned Freedom after ousting the 300-year Spanish rule in the year 1898, which revolution sparked the Spanish-American war, we in the 21st century are again trapped in yet another modern-day slavery and bondage.

108th

Among the prominent modern-day slavery and bondage are : the trafficking of persons specially women and children who are forced into sexual servitude, child soldiering, forced labor and debt bondage. Worst of all, wittingly or unwittingly, the world is now engaged in a global conflict which is short of the traditional face to face combat among modern-day war arsenals. We call this faceless global tormentor as terrorism. And yet closer to home, our leaders without much consultation has abolished the death penalty which is now left with reclusion perpetua or life imprisonment as the highest form of sentence. In which case, death penalty has been replaced with a ‘dead’ penalty in the form of life-until-death in prison. Finally we are all trapped in the bondage of poverty, where progress is not a vision, not even a goal but a never-ending dream and a chimera of political rhetoric. The hands of our leaders are tied with so many political compromises that alleviating poverty in itself has become almost an obstacle. Even the very freedom of the press is now under continuous threat by forces which is seemingly beyond the control of government law enforcers. Is it partly because in many cases, renegade law enforcers who are considered their bad eggs with criminal tendencies are considered the usual suspects? We are indeed in a unique situation in these

unique times. Unlike those years when our forefathers earned the Freedom for this country, they faced the enemy fair and square and conquered. Today, the enemy is almost faceless. They have the luxury of time and space. When oil wells are bombed, millions suffer including the economies of all nations. Poverty and infectious diseases worsen. Crime rises even as prices of commodities go sky high. Government is helpless by these faceless forces. Where is freedom? Report say that our country among others, are not making enough significant efforts to combat trafficking of persons. But we know that even our local governments are conscious of the need of taking action against illegal human-trafficking which is nothing but an assault on freedom to live a decent life worthy of human dignity. Where is freedom? In the abolition of the death penalty, a new tragedy is foisted against the restless memories of the victims. To many , its sudden abolition is an unexpected second trauma of justice-denied with the full weight of the law suspended and proper sentence is bleached with liberality. All because the hands of our leaders are tied from all sides

The best gift one can give oneself is education – it is an investment that yields the highest return. That is the reason, this budget-handicapped government allots (of course after debt payment) the highest allocation to the Department of Education. The right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – enshrined as a basic human right cannot be achieved, or will be enjoyed only partially, if the person is not educated. That is the reason why this Government has tried to make do with meager resources to provide inexpensive elementary and high school in over 42,000 public schools in the country. But what quality? Let us remember that for Filipinos to compete abroad or to be efficient, effective labor component in this country,

Juan de la Cruz must not be educated half-heartedly – as indeed he is today. Consider that there is a shortage of 6,500 classrooms today – yes Department of Education secretary Fe Hidalgo was correct. It is only solved by the so-called two-shifts strategy of classrooms use which effectively shortens the school hours of the students and fatigues the same teachers twice over. In Commonwealth elementary school 12,700 students share only 85 rooms (meriting a footnote in the Guiness Book of Records) while San Diego school in Quezon City has 5,400 students for 18 classrooms. In one Taguig school, students had to bring umbrellas and raincoats to school because the classrooms leaked while classes go on. In some parts of the coun-

try, they hold classes under mango trees; others inside barangay halls. There are 267 barangays without elementary schools and 5 municipalities without a high school. Add to that the woeful lack of books and materials to the 11,000 shortage in teachers (4,500 in the elementary and 6,500 in the high school level) and one has a recipe for an educational disaster of alarming proportion. These alarming ratios were partly influenced by the exodus of transferees of children from the private to public schools since the tuition fees in the former have been escalating massively. This year 32% of private schools have mercilessly hiked their fees and the Department of Budget and Management had to release P238 million in “subsidy” in order to force state colleges and universities

including political and religious pressures. Quo Vadis , Fredom? Yet today, we do mark this day in remembrance of heroes, of veterans and soldiers who died thinking that by now their country is at peace. That they did not die in vain. That their inheritors now live in peace. Freedom after all could yet be achieved in the after-life not in this. For today we live in continuous struggle for the healing of the past. Man can only be at peace when he is finally liberated from earthly tentacles, when he will finally be beyond the reach of death because he is back to the bosom of his Creator. This for us, is the Real Freedom. On June 12, tomorrow Monday, this humble paper marks its 33rd year of service to Community Journalism.

When compared with our neighbors, the country is in a miserable state in terms of classroom to student ratio of 44 compared to only 31 in Malaysia and 22 in Thailand.

This is documented by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. It is easy to see how fewer students will allow teachers to allocate more time to Turn to page 15

TOURISM Fine-tuning : URGENT Letter from a TOURIST:

COME & VISIT LAKE BALINSASAYAO

A

few days ago, my wife and I went to the Twin Lakes. A must for everybody who likes nature. The entrance fee for my wife (a Filipina) was P10.00, I had to pay P100.00, because “I’m an Americano” ten times more than my wife!. The money collector told us, it’s by order of the Tourist Office. Imagine some of your guys come to Berlin, my hometown, you are asking for a zoo-ticket and you find out, that they are charging you 10 times more than the locals,

because of the color of your skin and the different look. I call this Racism! So stop this kind of foreigner-plenty-ofmoney image. Your’e

good catholics behind your desks, stop this discrimination in front of God. We are all the same! SHAME ON YOU!!!

ORD 88: unconstitutional, illegal

I

n my absence on official business, I wish to register my vote for Ordinance No .88 either for repeal or amendment of the same which voting will be conducted by the City Council tomorrow, May 18, 2006.

I am not sure if my vote in absentia will be considered favorably by the members of the City Council. Nevertheless, since this is an issue of public interest, I wish to enter my vote. Right from the start, I have always seen this Ordinance in the light of the statement of its proponent that this was at the instance of the MCH drivers themselves. I had several reservations right from the start, including its excessive amount, the fact that it dealt with more than one subject matter and the tilt in favor of MCH association only, without considering the welfare of each and every driver. I was absent on the date it was approved as I was on official business and abstained when the proponent filed a resolution declaring it valid. My reasons were that while the ordinance had its merits, it was simply unconstitutional as it covered more than one subject matter. The exercise of the City Council in the several past sessions of having a second look at the Ordinance, either for its repeal and amendment still made me consider the reason for its inception – the welfare of the MCH drivers themselves. In ascertaining what is best, I look for them and place myself in their shoes because this Ordinance is really for them, because they are the ones who will be greatly affected and benefited, because they are the sector for which it has been enacted. While the rest of us may consider parliamentary propriety as an issue, I only consider the plight of this marginalized sector of the community: the MCH drivers. In the interest of the general welfare of this sector, I wish to vote in favor of the REPEAL of the Ordinance, with the following specific reasons and propositions: 1. The ordinance is unconstitutional as it considers more than one subject matter. The ordinance admits of three subject matters: two which are legal topics for legislation (increase of franchise fees and creation of a trust fund) and one (providing offices for MCH associations at the Public market) which is an executive privilege. Basic is it under the power to legislate (Section 26, Article 6 of the 1987 Philippine Constitution) that an ordinance must only contain one subject matter. In a long line of cases, ex. LLDA vs. CA, the Supreme Court has ruled that this is to prevent hodge-podge legislation and sporadic execution. Hence, to have two subject matters is unconstitutional. An increase in the franchise fees and creation of a trust fund speak of two subject matters. What should have been done is to enact two separate ordinances. The increase in franchise and mayor’s fees maybe can be attributed to the necessity of making these regulatory fees relevant to the times while the trust fund, maybe to assist government in creating effective programs. To my mind, government MUST “MATCH” the amount

contributed by the MCH drivers if only to enflesh the provisions of the Local Government Code and the Constitution that government and the private sector should partner in attaining development. The funding cannot simply come from MCH drivers themselves who are also considered a marginalized sector in the community. This is government passing the buck of its responsibilities. On the other hand, the creation of offices for MCH associations is a violation of the freedom to associate and the equal protection clause because it favors those who are coagulated in groups than those who choose not to join, when the protection of the law should be afforded to all - regardless of membership in MCH associations or not. 2. The fees are contrary to the Local Government Code provisions on regulatory fees, in the light of law and jurisprudence that revenue-raising measures should be equitable and based on the taxpayer’s ability to pay and not unjust, excessive, oppressive or confiscatory (Sections 130 and 186 of the LGC) and the rule that “the power to regulate as an exercise of police power does not include the power to impose fees for revenue purposes and for fees to be purely regulatory in nature, the same must be no more than sufficient to cover the actual cost of inspection or examination as nearly as the same can be estimated.” (American Mail Line vs. City of Basilan, 2 SCRA 309). Note that franchise fees have been raised from P20 to P400, 20x higher than what it was. Clearly, this increase is exhorbitant and, with the reaction of the MCH drivers, beyond their capacity to pay. The proponents might argue that more than 70% have paid. This is not a big issue to stand on. Note that MCH drivers depend on their livelihood to support their families. They had no Turn to page 15

REPLY from CAPITOL Tourists’ complaints not Tourism office’s concern? To Whom It May Concern: The Twin Lakes of Balinsasayao and Danao are situated in a Protected Area. By virtue of the NIPAs (National Integrated Protected Areas) Act, the Twin Lakes are under the Protected Area Management Board (PAMB). As is apparent in its designation, the PAMB manages the site, and determines the fees and collects the same, not the TOURISM OFFICE. Our Office has no regulatory functions or police powers, and we are not authorized to set or collect fees of any kind. The Provincial Board recently passed on Ordinance creating the Provincial Tourism Code, the first of its kind in the country, designed to institutionalize visitor-friendleness and protect our precious natural and manpower resources from the adverse impacts of tourism. Our newly-organized Federation of Oriental Negros Tourism Associations (FONTA) brings together our private sector friends engaged in tourism-related services and the production of tourism-oriented goods. Through the FONTA, we are promoting their efficient and competent delivery of such goods and services, while fostering in them professionalism, courtesy, and heartfelt enthusiasm in welcoming, serving and protecting visitors who appreciate our environment, abide by our laws and regulations, and respect the integrity of our gentle and genteel people.

M

r. Chairman, Ordinance No.88 is a long term plan whose VISION and MISSION – is to uplift the lives of the MCH DRIVERS in Dumaguete City. This VISION, Mr. Chairman, is the TRUST FUND, a pooling of funds of some 2,500 MCH Drivers. A fund that is going to provide MCH drivers alternative source of capital for possible livelihood projects, for emergency needs for tuition fees and hospital bills for members of their family, thus saving the MCH drivers from the clutches of USURERS in the City who prey on them like leeches, exacting from them interest rates at so much as twenty-percent (20%) a month. THAT IS THE VISION, Mr. Chairman. The MISSION Mr. Chairman is how to attain or make possible the pooling of funds amongst the MCH Drivers. The ANSWER therefore Mr. Chairman is the rationalization of the Franchise and Mayor’s Permit Fees. I submit, Mr. Chairman, that Ordinance No. 88 has ONLY ONE subject matter which is the TRUST FUND, the VISION, and its accomplishment – is our MISSION, pooling contribution into a common fund, which is to be constituted from the 70% collection of the Mayor’s Permit

Fee and 50% collection from the Franchise Fee. That, Mr. Chairman, is the MISSION of the VISION. I submit Mr. Chairman that, the VISION and the MISSION in Ordinance No.88 is only one subject matter. The creation of the TRUST FUND and the increase of the fees are GERMANE to another. One cannot live without the other. For CLARITY, however, Mr. Chairman, and conceding to the wisdom suggested by some members of this August Body, I propose to amend the titles of the ordinance, as follows: AN ORDINANCE ESTABLISHING A TRUST FUND FOR OPERATORS AND DRIVERS OF MOTOR CABS-FOR-HIRE (MCH) AND FOR THE PURPOSE, UPGRADE THE FRANCHISE FEES AND MAYOR’S PERMIT FEES SETTING ASIDE SEVENTY-PERCENT (70%) OF REVENUES GENERATED THEREFROM FOR LIVELIHOOD PROGRAMS TO IMPROVE THE LOT OF THOSE IN THE MCH SECTOR, AN EMERGENCY LOAN FOR MEDICINE/HOSPITAL AND EDUCATIONAL EXPENSES. There are comments that Ordinance No.88 is defective in that it has no provision to secure the return of the amounts loaned to an MCH driver. While I maintain that there is such provision, I welcome any suggestion that can improve the ordinance. (cite the provision) There are comments that a number of MCH drivers are against the Ordinance. In a democracy, like ours, Mr. Chairman, we can never expect UNANIMITY among our constituents, no matter the issue. In fact when the SSS was legislated some decades ago, there was

a general uproar of disapproval nationwide. The arguments against the compulsory contribution mandated in the SSS laws are the very same arguments raised by some of MCH drivers against Ordinance No.88. Why compel them to contribute? Their money is their property and that they cannot be deprived of it without due process of law. Today, however, the law on compulsory contribution under the SSS vision has proven to be a boon to its members. Somebody lamented Mr. Chairman that the Trust Fund is a ploy, a disguise that it is meant to cook food for the MCH drivers with their own lard, “SARILING MANTIKA”, they say. That observation Mr. Chairman is absolutely true! Our government has been around for time immemorial. It has proven to be short of everything. And that is so because the government can spend only so much as it can receive in taxes from its constituents. Taxes collected normally go to the General Fund. And because it is also a General Fund, the government has to apportion the General Fund to the General Public by way of extending to them only the most basic of services like infrastructure, education, housing, public roads, and the like. The MCH drivers are already benefited. They are the most to enjoy the new concrete pavements we have all over the City because they are almost non-stop users of our city roads.

And how much are they contributing to the cost of concreting and maintenance of our city roads? They insist that they continue paying only P27.00 as Mayor’s Permit Fee for the whole year! Under Ordinance 88, as will be attended, they are too pay P300.00 or P0.82 Turn to page 15

City Savings Bank is a thrift bank, member of the Aboitiz Group. The company recognizes that its greatest assets are its people. It seeks to hire and retain the best-qualified candidates. We seek highly motivated individuals and offer you the chance to be a part of our dynamic and fast growing team. Currently, we are looking for applicants for the following positions:

BRANCH CASHIER

(A PHILANTHROPIST)

It all started with the heart that was overflowing with compassion coupled with wisdom. When James B. Herring came to Dumaguete City and decided to retire here, he saw Foundation University main campus in 1996 and was conquered. What he saw was not only a captivating haven but a wonderful place where the gifted and the talented can grow and flourish.

Thus the Debra J. Herring Memorial Fellowship which started at the University of Texas at Austin USA was continued here in Foundation University. Debra was his beautiful daughter and she died at a young age. She was an outstanding individual, a scholar and fluent in four languages. But most of all she had a gift of giving and love for people just like her father. In 1997, even before the memorandum of agreement was signed, James B. Herring gave his first donation for the first twenty scholars of school year 1997-98. The first batch produced a Certified Public Accountant, a manager trainee at a local bank, and all the rest are successfully employed. Then it was followed by more determined, hardworking and gifted young students who excelled in their various endeavors. To institutionalize the relationship between James B. Herring and Foundation University, an audio visual room was dedicated to him by the administration of this school. James B. Herring has planted a seed not only in Foundation University but in the whole mankind. This seed of kindness bore many fruits, and many more. It is a legacy that will remain in the hearts of many, not only to those who were recipient of his blessings, but to those whom he has inspired to live a life of fullness. He died last June 5, this year. But that day, commemorates the existence of a man who lived well. The interment was held at the Dumaguete Memorial Park at 3:00 in the afternoon on June 6 last Wednesday. He came from a faraway land, but this country will always remember a man who has a heart of gold.

ur final observation must be stated: the suicide of King Saul – both physical and spiritual— is not as isolated as we may tend to think. Herod, King of Judea, was called “the Great” because he had done great things, such as reconstructing the temple (the most beautiful ever). But when his power was endangered, he went into an orgy of murders, including the killing of innocents at the birth of Jesus. He died frustrated and embittered. Napoleon Bonaparte rose from obscurity to become the master of all Europe. He was brilliant and could have done a lot of good, but according to his

Dr. PROCESO UDARBE

biographer, “he forgot that a man cannot be God, that above all mankind is the moral law.” Our country had a leader—the most brilliant in mind ever. He began with a noble slogan—to make his country great again—only to fall from idealism by gross immorality and corruption. Eventually he was thrown out and exiled to Hawaii where he died.

Matthew 28:16-20 T his text commanding the apostles to baptize with a Trinitarian formula is central to our understanding of what it means to be Christian. If we do not believe in the Trinity, one God but three persons, we are not Christian! We will never fully understand how this Trinitarian Godhead works, but we can entrust it to our faith and allow the Lord to reveal that which we need to understand in order to grow in relationship with Him. There are some things we just have to accept on faith. he eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the moun tain to which Jesus had ordered them. When they saw him, they worshipped, but they doubted. Then Jesus approached and said to them, “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”

HAT’S an expression, intriguing and dramatic, coined by Pope John Paul II. The insight came to him in the course of some personal reflections he gath ered in a book entitled, “Memory and Identity.”There he traced the historical validity of this insight as he considered the defeat of the ideological evils of communism and nazism that raged in his native Poland. Those evils were systematically vicious, their malice carried out in scientific fashion. He seemed to tell us of the universal applicability of this truth to all forms of moral evil besetting our world today. I think it is worthwhile to pay attention to the suggestion. We tend to take this for granted. And yet it is a crucial ingredient in our life. Thus, it’s good that Pope Benedict XVI himself echoes the same idea a number of times already. Fact is we need to be reminded of this basic truth that, of course, needs to be blended with the requirements of justice and prudence. We have to realize that even without considering the effects of moral evil, our human weakness and limitations alone can easily give rise to conflicts and problems among ourselves. Given that human condition alone, common sense will immediately tell us that we have to be ready to forgive and reconcile, no matter what it takes, otherwise we can all head towards mutual destruction. Mercy can do a lot of won-

ders to us. First of all, it is a divine command, lived first of all by Christ himself. “Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us,” we pray in the “Our Father.” When Peter asked our Lord how many times we should forgive, Christ was clear about forgiving not only seven times, but seventy times seven—meaning always. When the woman caught in adultery was dragged before him, our Lord did not condemn her. He saved her from being stoned and later admonished her to sin no more. And from the cross, that ultimate appeal for divine mercy was made—“Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.” Our Lord just forgave and forgave, and continues up to now to forgive, especially through the sacrament of reconciliation. Why? Because we are so precious to him—we are all children of God—that regardless of our mistakes, our Lord is willing to forgive us and to

reconcile us with him. He has given us all the means to attain that goal, because our reconciliation cannot also take place without our cooperation. We can say that mercy disarms evil. It may not prevent evil, but it surely can take away much if not all of the sting of evil and malice. It halts the vicious cycle of evil, and can start the process of healing. Mercy purifies our hearts, removing traces of resentment and anguish. It bestows on us peace and serenity. It restores joy. It facilitates friendships. As we enter into more complicated webs of relationships, we should neither forget the growing relevance of mercy in our life. Mercy can teach us how to expand our perspectives, from being purely human to being supernatural as well. It helps us to be more mature, to be more mindful of the over-all picture than to get entangled with childish details. With mercy, we will more easily understand that evil does

not deserve to be given a lasting concern. Parasitical in nature, opportunistic in character, it cannot survive when we overflow with goodness and holiness. We have to learn the ways of mercy. First of all, we have to realize that it is an effect of grace, of our living union with Christ, following his commandments and receiving him especially through the sacraments. We have to learn to forgive, and also to ask for forgiveness. We have to give due attention to this task. The dramatic transformation we all want to happen in our personal as well as social lives can only take place if we live the spirit of mercy, which is the spirit of Christ.

HISTORICAL NOTES

San Antonio de Padua O

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

n the 13th of June this year, as in the years of yore, all roads in Negros Oriental lead to the town of Sibulan. Honoring Patron Saint Anthony of Padua, devotees flocked to the Church that was reconstructed in 1953. In the early 1700s, it was a visita known as Alum. About a year after the founding of the Sibulan municipality, the parish was constituted independent in 1838 from the mother town of Dumaguete. The first parish priest was Fr. Mateo Saplad, a Cebuano secular priest. Father Saplad took up the task of building the first modest church and convent, both made of wood and light materials (de harigues y tabique pampango).His successors were Fathers Ubaldo del Rosario from the province of Iloilo and Bernardo Ruiz of the neighboring town of Tanjay. Both of them made significant improvements on those structures. Unfortunately, in 1854, the

two imposing edifices in the town were destroyed by a fire such that Father Bernardo “was so affected by the incident that he died shortly thereafter.” The Spanish Recollect missionaries began to take over the parish of Sibulan in February 1856. Fray Tom«s Mequita noted a year later that the parish town had a population of 4,149 faithful; he administered 133 baptisms, 35 marriages, and 44 funerals. Following the Recollect forerunner were the likes of Fathers Jos¾ Ma. Cabañas, Pedro Echevarria, Benito Pinilla, Francisco Gomez, and Manuel Clemente. During the Spanish epoch, each had a share of credit in the restoration and imbellishment of the house of worship; the building

orkplace believers are especially susceptible to a trap in their spiritual lives – one to which others may not be so susceptible. That trap is wealth. Scripture tells us that if we are having our basic needs met for food and clothing, we are considered to have riches. Jesus cautioned us against living a lifestyle that required more than our basic necessities. However, it is clear that Jesus was not against wealth, but against a dependence on wealth. Jesus continually taught that a dependence on anything other than God was evil. Whenever Jesus determined that money was an issue for an individual, He addressed it and found that the individual could not let go. This was true for the rich young ruler. When talking about what he must do to inherit the Kingdom, Jesus told him to do the one thing that would be the most difficult – to give away his wealth and follow Him. Jesus was not saying this was what every person must do, only the rich young ruler, because Jesus knew this was his greatest stumbling block. For others of us, it could be something else Jesus would ask us to give up (see Mt. 19:16-30).

San Antonio ... From page 8 (From page 8) along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop – a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown (Matthew 13:3b-8). The one who received the seed that fell among the thorns is the man who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke it, making it unfruitful (Matthew 13:22). Much like the frog in the boiling pot, if we are not careful we gradually begin to acquire and walk the treadmill of material gain. Those around us begin to expect more and more. Soon we begin expanding our lifestyle. Before we know it, we are worrying about how to take care of what we acquire. Our emphasis becomes what we own versus our relationship with Jesus and His Kingdom. One day I woke up and realized I had a cold heart toward God. Apathy toward the things of God became apparent. I was still going through the motions of service toward God, but with no power. We wake up to realize Christ is no longer Lord of our lives, much less of our money. The greater independence money gives us, the less dependence on God we need. Christ talked much about money in the Kingdom because He knew how much of a problem it was. This is why we have so few who are bearing 100, 60, or 30 times what is sown. Do you have the same hunger for God that you once had? Has financial blessing had an adverse effect on your passion for Jesus Christ? Ask Him today if your heart has grown cold as a result of financial blessing. Ask Him to keep you hungering for more of His presence in your life.

Anthony of Padua for responses to “impossible requests.” Made of reinforced concrete, the present Church was made possible under the supervision of Padre Fermin Samanes, OAR, known also as a hyphenated priest-constructor. Father Enrico Silab was the first Filipino Recollect to take over the parish administration in 1979. However, on 21st of April 1984, Fr. Cirilo M. Durana, the last Recollect priest, turned over the parochial duties to the diocesan clergy of the Dumaguete Diocese. With the recent reshuffling of the Clergy, the parish of St. Anhtony of Padua is entrusted to the team of priest-ministers. In solidum, Fathers Nathaniel Gomez (Team Moderator), Roman C. Sagun Jr. (Member), and Ramonito Maata (Resident), “collegially exercise the care of souls.”

With no education or job skills her mother was forced to break up the family and go to the big city to find work. She sent back what money she could but there was never enough. Finally at age eight the little girl went to work doing laundry and other household chores. The following years were virtual slavery. Most of the time she got only one or two hours sleep. Often she was not paid but just allowed to sleep on the floor and eat leftovers. As she grew and became more attractive her problems increased. If she was not fighting off the sexual advances of her employer she was fired by the wife in fear that she would stop fighting. Finally at seventeen she ran away to the big city to find real work for real money. She worked as a store clerk, waitress and even untrained caregiver. Her patient, an American, was dying of lung cancer. She made sure he was fed and took his medicine. She held his hand as he writhed in pain all night. She cleaned his soiled linens. Finally when he died he showed his gratitude for her

honest and devoted care by giving her a small monetary gift. For the first time in her short troubled life she had some money. She had never had any fancy clothes or fancy food. She had never dated any young boys. She had never gone dancing or to the disco. What should she do with her new wealth? First, she built her mother a SariSari store. Then she gave her stepfather a used pedicab. She then put the rest of the money in the bank and went back to school. She graduated from high school and is now enrolled in Silliman University. She is helping her sisters get their education. She is determined to become a nurse. She is equally determined to rebuild her shattered family. She is an “Everyday Hero”. I could tell you her name but she does not want the attention. Her story is just one of thousands of hardworking, honest and compassionate Filipinas and Filipinos. She and they are the real faces of the Philippines.

From page 9 There have been men and women in our land who had risen from obscurity but lost all their luster by the attractiveness of gold and power. They died unwept and unsung. Physical and/or spiritual suicide is not meant only for some of the big names. There was a young man in college—the one most likely to succeed—who squandered his bright mental and spiritual endowments by majoring in alcohol, gambling, womanizing, and drugs, and never got to where he wanted in the first place. There is the man, poor to begin with, but brilliant and was offered scholarships by a prestigious institution in Manila for the study of law. He makes it to the bar and emerges at the top. But in the course of his practice, he gets involved with shady deals and finds himself in jail for gross malfeasance. The tragedy is that most of them who committed suicide had, like Saul, their positive traits. Napoleon was loved by his soldiers for his magnanimity; our former leader was admired for his charismatic gifts. But all of these went down the drain due to the glitter of gold, lust for power or the temporary joys of immorality... How relevant the words of Jesus are! “What does it profit a man if he gains the world and loses his own soul?” And what does Paul say?” The soul that sins, it shall die.”

Radical Freedom

B

eing a libertarian by discipline I have chosen the subject of FREEDOM as a humble tribute to the celebration of our Inde pendence Day as a Filipino Nation and hope that we likewise

embrace, with more vigor and interest, the FREEDOM of the Human Soul. My previous article was entitled FREEDOM TO THINK. It was to impress upon each one that the power to think could not be curtailed by any earthly authority; not the Arabian Potentate nor the English king nor the Japanese Emperor nor the Pope of Vatican. Certainly however, the ability to think is subject to “God-powered self restraint”, thus this radical approach suggested in the Holy Writings which says: “But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life” (Romans 6:22). This biblical passage offers an obvious contradiction. One is made free yet he is a slave. Indeed, a strange paradox lies at the very heart of our human existence. In our worldly thinking we understand freedom as liberation and independence from all constraints. The more independent we are and the more self-reliant we are and the more self-determined we are, the more we think we are self-made and self-fulfilled. It is therefore a common human adulation to hear and say that one is self-made. King Solomon in the bible account thought that he was a made-man. He is free to do what he wishes to do and no human restriction could ever frustrate his desires. He had a lot of wealth and great power, yet when he became an old man and realizing that soon he will have to submit to the mighty leveler of human greatness and deposit his body to the cold levels of the grave, he was supposed to have said: “So now I hate life because everything done here under the sun is irrational. Everything is meaningless like chasing the wind. I am disgusted that I must leave the fruits of my hard work to others. And who can tell whether my successors will be wise or foolish? And yet they will control everything I have gained by my skill and hard-work. How MEANINGLESS!” (Ecclesiastes 2:17-19). Man has that natural instinct and that human impulse to be free and exercise the God-given WILL and INTELLECT to subdue the earth and have dominion upon everything that lives in it. Unknowing to Man however, his desire to be free includes being free from his own creator, the author and finisher of human life. This is the dialectic that had dawned eternal damnation upon Man. And here lies the paradox of our human existence for we find it so hard to believe that we should be submissive slaves to God in order to be truly free from other kinds of enslavement. We have wrongly taken our freedom too far away that it included our flight from God instead of the other way around. From the beginning of time eternity has been planted in the hearts of men, yet we tend to move away from the heart reaching outwardly for things that seemingly fulfill us instead of inwardly into our being where God forever resides. With this radical approach to freedom I confidently venture to say that the NEW HEAVEN and THE NEW EARTH can make manifest itself in our daily lives if only we comprehend. However, we will never be able to believe and comprehend this radical approach to freedom unless a deep conversion and transformation takes place at the core of our being. It will require our utmost desire and eagerness no longer to embrace the bondage of our past, nor the traditions of the church, nor the failure of our neigh-

bors but to immerse ourselves to the stern but gracious Word of God where we are invited to explore and to enter into a very different understanding and experience of freedom in its true and bare conception. FREE FOR GOD and FREE FROM OUR FOLLY is the mystery of God’s way which is the way of love, the way of forgiveness and the way of humility for we know that all are sinful, unrighteous and undeserving. The new found freedom teaches us to be fulfilled in whatever little things that God had entrusted to us during our short stay on earth while seeking our hearts for what really matters that is eternal. This RADICAL FREEDOM must likely be the only solution to the multifarious socio-political problems that the present generation is encountering. The nations of the world, including ours, are filled of people competing for wealth and power, and more of it, as if WEALTH and POWER is the meter-stick that measures the MEANING and PURPOSE OF HUMAN LIFE. Peace on earth has become an elusive commodity as people, nations and even “churches” compete against each other for world domination. The United States and Great Britain had jointly and unilaterally assumed to be the Pillars of the Earth by crushing every sovereign nation that are incidentally opposed to their ideological principles, while the Pope in Vatican is idly sitting in appro-

bation. There is yet to be heard from the portals of Vatican an open and clear condemnation of the US-UK world domination. They are akin to the beast of the seas and the beast of the earth trying every effort to gain control over the resources of the earth and, God forbids, maybe even promised of Heaven. Our very own Philippine Government, in its selfish desire for political survival, has to conspire and offer an approving cooperation. Power and wealth are all that matters, it seem. Man has becomes restless to attain his ambitions instead of being rested in the wholeness of God through Christ Jesus. Man’s desire for freedom had gone too far away as to include his flight from the center of his being who is the ALPHA and OMEGA of all. We are therefore to reorient ourselves and enter into the newness of life understanding it to be a gift from God regulated by His Word as written in the Holy Scriptures, nothing more and nothing less. Freedom from all thing and servanthood to God gives meaning and purpose to all things. In these times of great turmoil and confusion, our service to God, as I now do, is best manifested by our profound desire for others and the whole of God’s creation to experience this RADICAL APPROACH to freedom. The challenge for us is to enter the restlessness of God who continually and faithfully desire that all come to salvation and wholeness, that justice reigns, and that the whole earth be filled with peace – peace that overflows from the heart of every man and not peace that is imposed by an earthly authority or required by worldly religion, tradition and idolatries. Let us therefore rediscover the seed of God within us and let it be the inspiration and imagination of all we seek to do in life. Thus, as we bow in solemn admission of our human frailties let us cuddle and hold tight eternity as the seedbed for a life of faith, reflections, worship and humble servanthood. HAPPY FREEDOM DAY!

MY JOURNEY WITH CANCER

A Reason for Everything As a broadcast-journalist, I am documenting my battle with the Big C as I journey with the Lord in what could be my ultimate trial. I also write about my co-combatants against the Big C, hoping that our readers will know what it is like to be blessed by the Lord worth acknowledging. Please email me your feedbacks.

=================================

A

few kind words can make a Big difference between giving up and going on. I have received this email from a beautiful person who touched many lives when she wrote in this newspaper about her painful experience as a mother who deeply grieved over the losts of her unborn child. Her name is Olga. Pain seems to connect people in some way. It could be in different ways or level. But pain is pain. She writes so beautifully that I asked her permission to publish her encouragement. May this will also serve to encourage others. Olga wrote,

Dear Mrs. Villegas,

I truly admire your courage as you battle your cancer. The braveness and graciousness with which you face your trials speak of your tremendous faith in God and of your complete surrender to His oftentimes, unfathomable will. I remember my conversation with another formidable lady of faith, Dra. Maria Salud Kho, whose body is likewise ravaged by cancer. She sees in her condition the Hand of God guiding her to the path that He wants her to follow. I, too, am scared of the Big C. I have seen relatives succumb to its destructiveness. I also fear that it would come to me, or worse, to any of my loved ones. I am terrified at the thought of leaving my loved ones behind, not because I am afraid of death itself, but because I still have a little girl. She still needs me. That is why whenever I would talk to God, just like you, I would ask Him to please give me more time. Just enough until she is ready to stand on her own. You see, my little one still has a lot of growing up to do and she is going to need me during that time. I do not know when God would call me back, but I keep asking, “please Lord, not now, not yet.” I decided to write because there is something that I want to share with you. I hope that somehow, this will bring you comfort as it has brought me. DECLARATION OF HEIRSHIP, EXTRAJUDICIAL SETTLEMENT AND QUITCLAIM NOTICE is hereby given that the heirs of the late ULDARICO ALEJADO have filed and executed a Declaration of Heirship, Extrajudicial Settlement and Quitclaim on Lot No. 1694, covered by TCT No. 19730, situated in the City of Dumaguete, containing an area of 302 sq.m, in favor of Leslie Grace Alejado per Doc.

For every pain that we must bear, For every burden, every care, There is a reason. For every grief, that bows the head, For every tear drop that is shed, There is a reason. For every hurt, for every plight, For every lonely, pain-wracked night There is a reason. BUT IF WE TRUST GOD, AS WE SHOULD, IT WILL WORK OUT FOR OUR GOOD. For only God knows the reason. I have been through some rough times lately, so say it lightly. Sir Ely wrote about my story in the May 21, 2006 issue of the Negros Chronicle. He also published the letter that I wrote to him while I was in the midst of my grief. There is a REASON for everything. I believe in that with all my heart. I get comfort from that Ma’am, believing my pain has a greater purpose and meaning. I hope it will help you too. Please continue to be strong. Never lose your faith. After all is said and done, there is really nothing left for us to turn to except our faith in God’s loving goodness and how every little thing that happens in our lives fits into His great plan like pieces of a puzzle. Stay strong. You are my model. If somebody like you

never wavers in your faith, how much more the likes of me, so puny are my troubles compared to yours. I will continue to follow your story and you will be in my prayers always. Your sister in Christ, Olga I carry this letter with me, when fear and depression come like dark shadows, I take some time to read Olga’s words. Thank you Olga. I also thank Ely, the publisher of Negros Chronicle for he had encouraged me to write this column, which I thought no one would care to read. I came out of my shell of fear, that people would shun me because I am different. Receiving feedback from different people also encouraged me to publish every issue into a book.

For them, it’s home !

umaguete, the city of gentle people is known for its beautifully lighted boulevard, clean markets and the rows of acacia trees dotting the Silliman Campus and the city Park. It is the dream place of many foreigners and visiting local tourists.

Yet away from the bustling city lights is a quiet place where visitors are rare. From the time of its existence over three decades ago there has never been a sign board to mark its location, yet the sick knows where to go to get treatment. Patients and their family members show up at its gates, and now many nursing schools from Dumaguete and from other provinces send their student nurses to this facility to do their psychiatric exposure. This place is the Talay Mental Rehabilitation Center, supported by the City and Provincial government. This place has a history of its own, its inception was supported by very kind hearts who saw the need to have a place for those who cannot take care of themselves. Thankfully, we have a Governor who has a heart for

The Talay Mental Rehabilitation Center, located in a quiet part of Talay, Dumaguete City the least of our brethren. He has supported many infrastructure improvements within, and on his birthday last year, he gave a lunch meal for the patients and Center staff. At present, the Center census runs from 50 to 60 patients. This is supposed to be a 25-bed ward but the patients keep coming. They come from our City and neighboring towns, Negros Occidental, Cebu, Siquijor and Dipolog. Even with the barest of facilities the patients chose to stay. I wonder if it is true that in the whole Visayas, this and one in Cebu are the only centers open for this kind of treatment. I knew of this place in the ‘80s when I saw then Provincial Board Member Marilyn Victoriano bringing some of the patients to the market to ask for vegetables and meat. Years later, I started visiting the Center. A Center like this needs food and medicines for the patients seven days a week and competent and trained medical staff. Those in themselves are a huge burden even for the government coffers. I heard that in the whole Visayas, this one in Dumaguete City and one in Cebu are the only governmentsupported centers open. Dumaguete City may have over a hundred thousand residents, but over 90 percent of the city residents have not seen this place. At Christmas time the orphanages, hospitals and the jails get visitors and gifts, but few people make it to this Center. There are however, many hearts and hands helping this Center, the First Presbyterian Church of Ann Arbor, the Rotary Club of Dumaguete, and those who chose to remain anonymous have put in meals and vitamins to augment the government support. This may be a sad and depressing place, but for these patients, this is temporarily their home. My heart is gladdened that some made it back to their families, but some have stayed on. Too sick to be back in their homes and no one to take them in, they are in this place they, for the moment, call home.

The Habitat mothers prepare and serve breakfast to the ward patients. This is donated daily by the First Presbyterian Church of Ann Arbor and the Rotary Club of Dumaguete.

ORD 88: is for the ... (centavos a day). They consume a pack of cigarettes a day or one lapad of Tanduay Rhum or engage in many forms of gambling which cost them certainly more than a peso a day. But they be-grudge contributing to their own common fund, the Trust Fund which is less than a peso a day. I don’t buy that, Mr. Chairman. I believe that the greatest majority of the MCH drivers share the VISION and the MISSION of Ordinance No.88. They refuse to cook their food with “sariling mantika” as if eating the fruits of the sweat of their own toil is a sin. But Mr. Chairman, in fact that is a biblical exhortation, that one must eat only by the sweat of his brow. So what is wrong with “sariling mantika”? Magluto ka ug sud-an sa inyong balay unya mangayo pa ka ug mantika sa imong silingan? After all God said, My Son, Help yourself first then I will help you. The TRUST FUND, Mr. Chairman, is a self-help poverty alleviation program envisioned in Ordinance 88. The VISION by itself is DEAD. It is the MISSION that gives life to the VISION. If we kill one, we kill both the VISION and the MISSION. Ordinance 88 was deliberated upon thoroughly and intelligently, participated in by all members of this August Body, not only for one day, or one month. The legal minds in this August Body were very active during deliberations. In short, Mr. Chairman, each member of this August Body is responsible for the conception of Ordinance No.88, its nourishment, and care as a mother and a father would do when the couple partakes in the Holy act of procreation. And it was by the unanimous effort (votes) that brought forth the birth of this Ordinance. The child, our child, was born finally. And the child was healthy at birth. In fact the child was baptized and given the name Ordinance No.88. MCH drivers paid new rates in accordance with the schedule, depending on the end-number of their side car. And there were those whose numbers were not yet due, but who had paid ahead just the same. This showed, Mr. Chairman, that the allegation that the MCH driv-

From page 5

ers were compelled because of threats of “arrest” are mere allegations unsupported by the records at the City Treasurer’s Office. The child, our child, Ordinance No.88 was born healthy. And then it became sick. It became sick when forces from several directions started to exploit some number of MCH drivers who throve into the Hall of this August Body, with the obvious message that we could lose their support come election time. Their purpose? To kill Ordinance No.88. To repeal, Mr. Chairman, is to kill. But to kill is a sin. And to kill Ordinance No.88, our child, is INFANTICIDE. If it is true that Ordinance No.88 is defective, must we kill it? If your child is sick, can we do nothing, BUT KILL IT? The Honorable Mayor Agustin Perdices has certified as urgent an administrative bill seeking to amend Ordinance NO.88, bringing down the fees by P100.00. That, Mr. Chairman, is a remedial measure. Not a kiss of death. I agreed to sponsor it. But latter developments proved to be perilous to the life of Ordinance No.88. The forces inimical to it, reneging from a gentleman’s agreement forged between the Mayor and MCH officials, this time wanted nothing but death to the ordinance! When confronted with this situation where death to the Ordinance was the only alternative, I decided to be absent when the death blow is delivered. In fact I had to be absent for three consecutive sessions until I was asked by the Mayor to a conference and asked what my stand was. I took the same stand, Mr. Chairman. I made a choice for life. I disdain death, death is repugnant. Death is hopelessness. Death to the ordinance is stagnation. The MCH drivers will remain as they are, impoverished with no chance, no hope, to improve their lot. Under the TRUST FUND VISION Mr. Chairman, the MCH drivers will have an ever-growing fund. Today, June 1, 2006, the TRUST FUND is already over ONE MILLION PESOS. Under the MISSION in the Ordinance No.88, this fund will be available for loans to all

ORD 88: unconstitutional ... From page 5 choice but to pay the fee so that they can continue on their daily labour. For all we know, the amount they have paid have been loaned elsewhere. 3. The trust fund has no specific mechanisms for release and collection and the benefit is limited and underscored on loans and employment opportunities for MCH drivers and their associations, if any. The act of having MCH associations handle the trust fund is a violation of the basic rule that public funds must not be expended to the private sector and for private purpose. The ordinance is limited to loans or livelihood programs only. The limit of the programs to loans is a pathetic dole-out system and a limited misnomer. If we consider (and we have to consider), all 2,500 drivers, the P1,750,000 to be generated can only allow a loan of P700 per driver. We have to assume that all will borrow because the ordinance is for all. What livelihood programs can be funded by this amount? I suppose one of government’s inherent responsibilities is to create programs which will allow its people to grow by themselves and not fend back on government. Plus, there looms the probability of a cancelled franchise. Is this not

multiplying the problems? Government should be worth more than monetary dole-outs. It must come up with concrete programs for the benefit of its people, especially for the marginalized sector of the MCH community. I admire the good intentions of the Ordinance but stand that its infirmities simply cannot be cured by amendment. I suppose the very reason for a public hearing while others might consider it to be a bad legislative precedence, is to consider what is the general sentiment of the affected sector of the Ordinance. The public hearing on any ordinances imposing fees is a mandatory requirement of the Local Government Code for this very reason. I disagree that listening to them and ascertaining their reactions would tantamount to a mob rule. After all, they are the sector who will be greatly affected by the same. To conclude that way would be underestimating the capacity of the MCH driver (a recognized and important sector in the community) to comprehend the general effect of the Ordinance to them. I would like to believe that, with the composure they have shown, their voice is worth listening to. (Sgd) MYRISH C. ANTONIO

MCH drivers who have the legitimate need. To the concern that this will never be enough for all the members, I say the proof that the VISION is viable is in the strength and success that the PHCCI and DCCO are showing, cooperatives that started with very few members. For it is not given in the scheme of things that ALL MEMBERS will apply for loans at the same time. The legitimate needs of the MCH drivers do not come a pouring like the heavy rains; it comes in drizzles sometimes by the droplets. If it were otherwise, the SSS, PHCCI, and the DCCO could not have survived even a year. I said Mr. Chairman that the TRUST FUND is an ever growing fund even as it charges a minimal of monthly interest, because under the scheme of collection in Ordinance 88, associations are to make collections from its members DAILY. The scheme is so, Mr. Chairman, because the MCH drivers earn or practice their trade also on a daily basis. The rationale of the

15

collection is that, a loan of P1,000.00 to a member, if payment is collected daily, is only P2.78 a day. If a member makes a default, by provision of the Ordinance, the association shall pay for him. The association, in turn, makes a daily deposit to the City Treasurer’s Office. The question may therefore be asked, what about those who are not members of any MCH association. Non-members are to make applications with the Sectoral Desk Office, which office shall make arrangements as to the mode of repayment. Today, there are two proposals that this August Body will consider. One is that of the Honorable Saleto Erames, which is to repeal Ordinance No.88. The second one is that which is certified as urgent by the Honorable Mayor, proposing amendments to Ordinance No.88. In voting we signify whether to kill Ordinance No.88 or add more life to it and see that the VISION is to give the MCH Drivers in Dumaguete hope for a better tomorrow. Mr. Chairman, I will vote for life. THANK YOU MR. CHAIRMAN.

It is very clear that the state of education in the country has deteriorated in large measure as proven by the atrocious performance of those who go through college especially in the fields of Mathematics and the Sciences. When this malady translates even to the abhorrent use of the English language by even college students, then we are in for deep shit. The last remaining bastion of our supposed competitive edge – the facility of the use of the English language is no longer defensible.

abroad for greener pastures. Now, to our eternal chagrin, the “brain drain” is becoming more real with professionals like doctors, nurses, physical therapists, bankers, accountants, chemists, scientists and even teachers are leaving the country. The teachers are there not even as teachers in schools but nannies to teach the rich families’ kids speak correct, grammatical English. And guess who are left behind the country to represent the “best” there is in our labor force? The mediocre, half-educated students waving diplomas – some of them manufactured in Recto and Escolta – bringing to question our attraction as an investment haven in terms of manpower. Professor Randy David had lamented that Filipinos, in dire straits, today have no choice but to put up coping mechanism. If they can’t have land, they become squatters. If no health care, they run to faith healers. If no rice, they eat instant noodles all day long. Without an adequate educational system, we make do with producing graduates that hold diplomas that mean next to nothing. Or diplomas that have a little bit more value than the paper it is printed on. Cry, Philippines, cry.
