She also reported that there have been no incidents of attacks by rabies-infected dogs. The number of people infected with rabies primarily due to dog bites have dropped sharply. Dozens of people have already died in the past due to the rabies virus introduced into the body not only by dogs but even other animals through biting. Most of the victims, whose brains have been the main target of the rabies virus also display dog-like behavior before they die. Meanwhile, the City Veterinarian is currently implementing the execution of hundreds of stray and sickly dogs to spare the public from any diseases and possible attacks.

Vizconde massacre: What’s the final verdict?

N

Editorial JUSTICE: One for the rich, one for the poor

T

HE unusually slow pace  by which the  Maguindanao massacre is  going in the Department of Justice is a clear manifestation that in our country, there is ind eed a clear  dou ble standard of justice,  one for the rich and one for the poor. If the situation were the reverse, meaning, tne accused Ampatu an clans were  the victims, we can only imagine two things: first, the killers are themselves killed by now, or, that the killers are now behind bars. In our country, it is easier to jail and dispose of the poor than the rich. But in the case of the 57 massacre victims 30 of whom were journalists, the wheels of justice are unusually grinding slower than expected. Of the 159 suspects, 80 are now u n d er pol ice or NB I cu stod y bu t the preliminaries are not yet over and it has been a year since the massacre occurred in the mountains of  Maguindanao. We just marked the first anniversary of the Maguindanao massacre. It has been very clear that the judicial process is grinding exceedingly slower than expected.  Reports say that even those  un-arrested suspects who are mostly policemen in Maguindanao,  are not only free roaming in the streets with the preliminary investigation not yet over,

the worse part is, they are still paid their salaries.. The usual legal strategy of the defense is ..delay…until the prosecution loses its stamina. Even  Justice Sec Leila de Lima believes that the case could drag on until the term of PNoy ends after six years. The lawyer of the Ampatuans  Atty. Sigfred Fortun believes the case could drag on, for more than ten years if not properly managed. (The Webb Vizconde case which is now brewing again has been on trial for twelve years and to think that only three were killed in that infamous rape-double murder case. ) The people have never accepted this slow pace trial, saying that  it is a reinforcement of the accepted norm of double standard of justice, one for the rich and one for the poor.  We hope that Pres PNoy no less will exert influence in getting an early verdict for the victims of the Maguindanao massacre. PNoy must vindicate his name as a leader since this happened during his term and that leaving this Amaptuan murder unsolved will only bring down his credibility rating  coupled with the fact that his entry to Malacanang has been greeted with major crimes including the failed hostage crisis which also killed 27 foreign tourists.

ot long from now, the Supreme Court will decide one of the most sensational, and controversial criminal cases in the 1990’s. The m urder of the wife and tw o daughters of Lauro Vizconde, known as the Vizconde massacre, continues to grip a nation that still awaits the final verdict of the highest court. The lower courts have already convicted the accused, Hubert Webb and his friends. Webb and company were convicted by the trial court of Paranaque presided by then Judge Amelita Tolentino. The judge was subsequently promoted to the court of appeals . Upon appeal, the court of appeals upheld the conviction. Webb is seeking a reversal by appealing to the final arbiter, the Supreme Court. I see four possible scenarios that will put closure to this decade-old criminal case. First, the Supreme Court may uphold the conviction by the lower courts. The Supreme Court is not a trial court. It is assumed that the facts have been thoroughly scrutinized by the trial courts and have undergone a thorough review by the appellate court. When the Supreme Court upholds criminal convictions, it would declare there is no reason to disturb the findings of the lower court and the court of appeals. However, there is nothing that would preclude the Supreme Court from entirely reviewing the findings of the lower court. If, after rev iew the high court finds reversible errors, it would have to declare an acquittal. The way it looks, there are two interesting main points that may lead to an acquittal. First is the strength of Hubert Webb’s alibi. Alibi, as they say in criminal law, is the weakest of all defenses. However, if the alibi is sufficiently established such that it would be physically impossible for the Turn to page 6–D

from any of the protagonists. What is most likely is to play the blaming game. And most likely the blame would mainly fall on the Pope for m aking such statement. But the Pope did right in clarifying that matter about the condoms. What he was actually saying was that condoms as contraceptives are always wrong, are always sinful. Yet in spite of that sinfulness, one can still distinguish shades of m itigating circum st ances. The “justification” of the use of the condom arises from this—that it can prevent graver harm, that it can be a sign of a beginning conversion, etc. Just the same, its use as a contraceptive in spite of those mitigating circumstances is already wrong. Obviously, when the condom is used as a balloon for decoration or toy, its use is not anymore sinful. It’s now moral. So the Pope is trying to be nuanced in his approach to a moral situation. Who says the Pope and the Church in general are just dogmatic, so black and white as not to admit shades? I would say, the Pope was trying to take us a step further than our current state of understanding about condom use. The reasoning behind t he Pope’s argument echoes the one used by our Lord him self when he talked about the unjust steward, found in Luke 16. Our Lord praised the dishonest st ew ard for his cleverness in arranging t hings w hen he, t he st ew ard, w ould eventually be kicked out of his employment. So, our Lord, even in the midst of an over-all sin, managed to see bright spots in that cleverness. The parable concluded by saying, “The master commended the dishonest steward for his prudence. For the children of this world are wiser in their generation than the children of light.” (Lk 16,8) As our Lord said, we need to be innocent as doves but also shrew d as serpents. We have to be very prudent and discerning, without allowing that prudence to spoil the goodness of our heart. It’s not easy, but it can be done, with God’s grace and our efforts. This quality is necessary these days, when we know that some people and even some leaders in politics, business, etc., can be playing the devil’s games. Recently, for example, we were pleasantly surprised to hear former US President Clinton sort of giving a positive comment on our big population. Without saying that he is playing the devil’s game, we are of course happy to hear what he said, though we should not forget what he is know n for. He is good in playing games, and so we just have to decipher w hat game he is playing this time. If in the end, it’s found that he is being honest, then well and good. If not, then we have to act accordingly. We should try to avoid being taken for a ride, being sweet talked to. We are living in dangerous times. We need to be familiar, for example, with the reality behind the expression, “wag the dog.” But prudence should allow us to see the silver lining in the world’s dark clouds.

NO TIME?

I knelt to pray but not for long, I had too much to do, Must hurry off and get to work, For bills would soon be due. And so I rattled a hurried prayer, Jumped up from off my knees. My Christian duty now was done, My soul could be at ease. All through the day I had no time, To speak a word of cheer. NO TIME to speak of Christ to friends, They’d laugh at me I feared. NO TIME, NO TIME, so much to do, That was my constant cry. NO TIME to give to those in need; At last, t’was time for me to die…. And when before the Lord I came, I stood with downcast eyes, With his hands He held a book, T’was the BOOK OF LIFE. He looked into the book and said, “Your name I cannot find, I once was going to write it down But never found the TIME.”

It used to be that our Congressmen always give way to the pressure of the church or any religious group or any vested group who are lobbying for or against a bill pending before Congress. Now, is the time for our Congressmen to look at the best interest of the Filipino people and not whether it is against the religious stand of others. The Constitution provides for freedom of religion, and also the freedom of expression. On the other hand among the inherent fundamental powers of the state, is the police power. The power of the government especially given to Congress of the Philippines as the Legislative Department to pass wholesome and reasonable laws to govern human conduct or property relations on the ground that it is done for public welfare, or in short it is required for public interest and for the public welfare of the people.

I was aware of the reassuring voices, becoming fainter and fainter, until there was only silence. Everything went black, then sweet oblivion. Drifting into nothingness is something that I got used to as a five-year breast cancer survivor. It was six on Saturday morning of November 13 when I underwent a four-hour surgical procedure, first a D and C then followed by a total removal of uterus and ovaries. I had pelvic endometriosis, endometrial polyp that caused pain and bleeding. The result of the biopsy was not malignant and I praise God for another miracle. Few days earlier I worried

about many concerns, from my heart, diabetes, to finances, teaching loads, surgery results and procedure and many more. Until I gave up and let go.

WHAT a spin it was!  or a while I was frozen in disbelief as I read newspaper headlines and commentaries of what the Pope said recently about condoms. Who would not be dismayed when you read titles like, “Church has changed her position on condoms”? 

There were more disconcerting takes. UN officials welcomed the Church’s change of heart. Palace told bishops should now soften their stand on the RH bill given the Pope’s statement on condoms. Lagman, the main RH bill proponent, and the Damasonians were practically dancing in the streets. Some clerics now lawyering for the bill must be excited. I could not believe that some officials who are supposed to have some IQ and the media would bother to publish this clear case of misinformation, since the clarification on the part of the Vatican was readily available. It was again another field day for sensationalism.

am just beginning to realize that Christmas is really coming … and is almost here! And my firm resolve to get my Christmas shopping done in September – well, at the latest in October – seems to have been misplaced and forgotten. So here I am again, as it seems I am every year, just beginning to make my lists, when almost everyone else has theirs completed.

I will only begin decorating our home this week. Perhaps it’s because I was brought up in Vermont, USA, where we only began decorating for Christmas two weeks before the 25th. Our Christmas tree was always a real, live one that we searched for. Since it would only last for about three weeks indoors, we would delay cutting it and decorating it until the week before Christmas Day. Dad and I would put on multiple layers of warm winter clothing that included boots and mittens. Then in zero

degree weather we would trek into the snow-filled, wooded hills in the back lot of our farm to look for our Christmas tree. Finding just the right tree was usually not too easy, and we would arrive home late in the afternoon, cold down to the bones but happily dragging “the tree”. Mom would begin early in the “ber” months lovingly making gifts for friends and relatives. Her sewing machine whirred busily.

The people and the city itself celebrate the city fiesta with gusto, from the home festivities to the many activities all over the city. For the fiesta week the whole of Rizal Boulevard is filled with activities, from the Kumbira crowd to the many businesses: food and trinkets and henna tattoo s ervic e s line the boule vard.     Different restaurants and varied cuisine, from the simple boulevard tocino and tempura to the specialities of the different restaurants are displayed along the whole le ngth of the boulevard. The usual quiet boulevard is filled with sounds and lights and people. For Filipinos, celebrating fiesta means preparing an abundance of food for the family and friends. In many homes, dining tables are filled with various delicacies. Food

is catered from the many caterers in the city and the open house tradition of feeding all who come for the fiesta meal is still prac tic ed. The community spirit abounds; homes are filled with friends, friends of friends and long time acquaintances can feel free to drop in for a hearty meal. The fiesta meals begin on the fiesta eve till the fiesta dinner and the different generations of old and young ga the r for this celebration. I have fond memories of the Dumaguete fiesta in our home.  Celebrating fiesta is the highlight of all the celebrations for our family. My late mother took the celebration of fiesta seriously; she starte d the preparations week before the actual date. Marketing for ingredients are done weeks before.  Dishes, plates, glasses and utensils are out days before and notes for things to do are ready on fiesta eve. The kitchen is a blur of activities on fiesta morning as food is home cooked and have to be on the table before noon. I remembered as a young girl helping out in the kitchen

during the rush of cooking one fiesta morning, I was feeling harried, and told my mother; Ma, why do we have to be very busy preparing the fiesta meal, it’s a lot of work. Do we really have to celebrate fiesta? It’s a lot of work. I remembered my mother looked at me and said: Le, fiesta is very special. We must not complain. It is an occasion to thank  God  for  the  many blessings we receive for the year and we share that joy with friends. I realize celebrating fiesta is about thanksgiving and celebrating.  We may not have our Thanksgiving Day, but there is so much to be thankful for each year and fiesta is a good time for the family and friends to be together, sharing laughter and stories over good food.  Fiesta is a time of joy, and thankfully, the spirit of fiesta is well and very much alive in our beautiful city !

ployed (about half of all poor families). Poor families in the rural areas of the province are: the (a) lowland landless agricultural workers; (b) lowland small farm owners and cultivators; (c) upland fa rme rs inc lu din g t rib al communities; and (d) artisan fisherfolk. Lo wl and l and le ss agricultural workers work in agriculture but have neither ownership nor farming rights. They earn most of their income from the sale of their labour, either to plantations or smaller farms and rights to till the land. Lowland small farm owners and cultivators, on the other hand, own the land they till or have a recognized right to till the soil. This group includes owners, lessees and tenants. They own land of less than one hectare up to thr ee h ecta res. Up la nd fa rmer s a re s ub si st en ce farmers of marginal land on rolling hills and steep mountain slopes. (Uplands are operationally defined as areas with a slope of 18 degrees of more.

They include plateaus and valleys in higher elevations). Sub groups may b e dist inguished as: (a) cultural or tribal communities; (b) kaingineros or slash-and-burn shifting cultivators; and (c) rice and corn farmers who have resettled. They may have legal access to the land they till through any combination of the following arrangements: (a) ownership or part ownership; (b) lease; or (c) sh are te nan cy (“ sao p/ sacadas”). They are distinguished from lowland farm owners and cultivators. Among that fisherfolk there comprise of mu nic ip al, smal l-s cal e or subsistence fishermen. They use equipment which either does not requ ire boat s or necessitates the use of boats below three tons, such as the traditional outriggers (Bangka). They operate in inland waters and marine waters within three nautical miles from the coast when using motorized Bangka.

Self-discipline The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty. Proverbs 21:5

T “A

ny kingdom at war with itself is doomed. A city or home divided against itself is doomed. And if Satan is casting out Satan, he is fighting against himself. His own kingdom will not survive. And if I am empowered by the prince of demons, what about your own followers? They cast out demons, too, so they will judge you for what you have said. But if I am casting out demons by the Spirit of God, then the Kingdom of God has arrived among you. Let me illustrate this. You can’t enter a strong man’s house and rob him without first tying him up. Only then can his house be robbed!” Matthew 12:25-29 At Jesus birth Satan’s power and control were disrupted in the wilderness Jesus overcame Satan’s temptations, and at the Resurrection he defeated Satan’s ulti mate weapon—death.

The truth and half-truths about reproductive health

P

ope John Paul II in his encyclical Evangelium Vitae, spoke of a rise of a new threat to destroy humanity—the Conspiracy Against Life. (EV12) Fr. Michael Schooyan, a Belgian and guest FR. GAMMY TULABING theologian of the Pontifical JCD, VG Council for Family Life calls it an all-out war greater than all the other world wars because it involves scientific, psychological, spiritual, moral, as well as biological wars. (Sept. 18, 1995. TaiwanInternational Congress on Demography and Family in Asia and Oceania Conference). The Conspirators want to destroy the Roman Catholic Church and Society. They try to dominate the world by controlling all religions and politics. Politics is manipulated by centralizing banking, trade and military. Global religion is syncretized by ranking Jesus in the same level as Allah, Vishnu, Buddha and other ancient religious leaders. They proclaim the fallen angel, Lucifer, as the highest of all gods from whom the conspirators receive power, inspiration, and knowledge. Their mission is to build a kingdom of material prosperity, A One World Government… A New World Order, under Satan’s reign.  Their weapons, the seven (7) deadly capital sins, are now beginning to gnaw at the very foundation of the Roman Catholic Church and the family, which they consider as the main obstacles for a global takeover. The Holy Father takes the frontline in this colossal battle, steering the great bark of St. Peter towards its two pillars of strength: the Eucharist and the Blessed Virgin Mary. All the Catholic faithful, and all the faithful Catholics, faithful to God and to the Church, are called upon to join the Holy Father in fighting the Conspirations against life. Bishop Fabian Turn to page 16

Eventually Satan wi ll be constrained forever, and evil will no longer pervade the earth. Jesus has complete power and authority over Satan and all his forces.

HISTORICAL NOTES

Parish Priests of Dumaguete (2) n Reseña histórica de Dumaguete (A Historical Account of Dumaguete), Fray Mariano Bernad, a Recollect parish priest of Dumaguete admitted in 1895: “It is not an easy task to be able to go to the exact REV. FR. ROMAN C. SAGUN, JR. facts and get the reliable information about the beginnings of the town of Dumaguete, having interviewed so many, but only finding faint traces about its past.” Padre Mariano, as he was fondly called by his parishioners who held him in great affection, also stated: “Nevertheless, the indication will point to show that it is one of the towns of great antiquity in this Island of Negros, as Binalbagan of the western coast and Tanjay in the eastern coast. As Pastor of the new capital town of the province named “Región Oriental de Ysla de Negros”, Padre Mariano further said that after 1660s: “Everything remains in great darkness until the year 1710, wherein one may encounter few loose papers in the archives and a book in which baptisms, weddings, and burials of all the districts are recorded.” The entries in the parish record were signed by all the parish priests and even their assistants. Thanks to Fr. Angel Martinez Cuesta, OAR in History of Negros (1980), we know Fr. Juan Navarro was parish priest in 1670s. Sadly, a document revealed that between 1673 and 1683, Dumaguete was not attended by a priest, perhaps the first time to happen in its early history. Beginning in 1684, Fr. Diego Ponce took over. In Reseña histórica de Dumaguete, Fray Mariano Bernad noted that between 1710 and 1754, the parish town was administered by fifteen priests. In 1754-1776, Fr. Jose Manuel Fernandez de Septein was pastor of Dumaguete. Of aristocratic ancestry, this Spanish secular priest was responsible for constructing the oldest stone church in Negros, the spacious convent and Turn to page 15

he only way one can develop character is through selfdiscipline. When a child is young, he is disciplined externally by his parents. As the child develops into maturity, the ex ternal discipline of his parents is internalized. By a mechanism of conscience and willpower, he imposes discipline on himself. This internal mechanism is called self-discipline.

The word discipline is related to the word disciple. How can we be a disciple if we are not going to be disciplined by Jesus? How can we be a disciple if we are not going to exercise the self-discipline needed to follow Him? Selfdiscipline involves an effort to control the will to do what one knows is right. Self-discipline is not allowing the lazy and lustful tendencies of our flesh to guide us. Without selfdiscipline, our conscience is incapable of taking command over our being. Self-discipline is the demand of the will for our bodies and minds to obey

the leading of the Spirit. Self-discipline will lead toward a productive lifestyle. Proverbs 21:5 states: The plans of the diligent surely lead to plenty, but those of everyone who is hasty surely to poverty. A self-disciplined mind can begin to plan and dream of positive solutions. Self-discipline produces diligence and patience. One who is not self-disciplined will sink into laziness. He will not be able to exercise the self-control to be patient. An undisciplined person will be over-hasty and make mistakes. Diligence, patience and self-discipline work together.

TODAY’S

GOSPEL Matthew 24:37-44 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two

men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left. “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

Sunday Thoughts ON TAKING UP ONE’S CROSS (Part 3) n relation to the suffering of the Christian, there is one enigmatic statement that Paul makes in his letter to the Colossians in which he sp eak s bio gra ph ica lly o f t he meaning of his suffering. Just before the passage Paul speaks of the death of Jesus as in order that to present th e Chr ist ian s bla mel es s a nd irreproachable before God, and then he goes on to say:

I

Now I rejoice in my suffering for your sake, and in my flesh I complete what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for the sake Of his body, the Church, of which I became a minister According to the divine office which was given to me for You, to make the word of God fully known, the mystery Hidden for ages and generations but now made manifest to His saints (Col. 1:24-26).

What does Paul mean when he says that he “completes in (his) fle sh wha t is lacki ng in the afflictions of Christ?” So me vie ws h ave be en suggested by which this enigmatic claim of Paul can be explicated and understood. While the whole pa ssa ge me rit s t ho rou gh exposition because of its meaning for the life and faith of the Church, it is enough that we deal with what we mean when Paul says that in his suffering he completes what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ. Our participation in Christ’s ministry finds it ground on the incredible event of God’s setting forth Christ to die for our sake, for “he who knew no sin was made sin for us that we might become the righteousness of God;” “that we who are poor might become rich.” The theme of all these Pauline declarations is that the Se rva nt fro m who m t he servanthood of the Church is derived, underwent suffering; he was nailed toTurn the cross on behalf to page 19

T

welve years ago, a home health agency was es tablis hed in our city. From its humble beginnings with its first office in the Tayko residence in Bantayan, it has moved to its present location and has served hundreds of families in our city, the neighboring towns and even as far as Metro Manila. It has greatly eased the caregiver burden of many families whose daily routines are disrupted because of sudden illness of one of the members of the family; the birth of a baby; or the discharge from the hospital of a family m em ber who has a chronic illness.   It  has  also  eased  the transition from the hospital to the home after surgery; soothed the nerves of a first time mother; and allowed the members of the household to go on with their lives even while coping with challenges like illness, birth, and death. Its services are cost-effective, available 24/7, and provided by trained health professionals.

November

Hom e care is now a favored option due to escalating cost of health care, a trend of movement from hospital to home or community care, and increasing longevity of the population. In addition, home care improves the quality of life and increases client satisfaction, which leads to Care helps nursing mothers to shorter stays in hospitals, Sure manage their newly born. ensures a safe discharge to the home while promoting continuity of care and promotes client’s recovery and mental well being.

Also, a boxer may throw punches by the volume - the likes of actor Fernando Poe Jr.’s makebelieve stunts but without power that’s just entertainment. Pacman, per statistics, landed 411 power blows to Margarito’s 135 - sending the latter to the hospital in stitches for surgery and with a deflated ego. For Margarito - prudence should have prevailed over Mexicano machismo. Pride combined with ignorance spells trouble. He allowed himself to be a punching bag because “Mexican do not quit.” Open wounds and broken bones can heal but the internal damage will stay forever - perhaps leading later to Parkinson’s Disease - a boxer’s ailment that

From 2003 (WBC flyweight title) to 2010 (WBC su per we lte rweig ht) , t he congressman-pugilist from Mindanao has fought the best, among them future Hall of Famers, like Oscar de la Joya, An ton io Bar re ra and Er ic Morales. La st Su nda y, Pa cman definitely bamboozled Antonio with bombs of frightening power, speed and precision which altered Magarito’s pleasant face into Fr igh t Nigh t. Gr ote squ e. But that is not yet the measure of true greatness. That greatness came with the compassionate manner Pacman clobbered the halfblind Margarito in the last round - avoiding inflicting permanent damage to the Mexican in a sport Manny describes as “not about killing each other.��� A show of mercy. Such class act - for only the truly brave can afford to be gentle. Doubtless, a true champ.

long denied by her years of incarceration. The Burmese symbol of the “ p owe r of the p owe rle ss ” , according to her Nobel accolade reminds us much of our own peaceful revolution in EDSA 1986. Su u Kyi wh o i s US presid ent Barack Obamas’ “hero” inspires all men that the struggle for democracy is not won in one day. After Africa’s Nelson Mandela (27 years), she has spent the longest jail/house arrest term fighting for freedom among contemporary world leaders. While her release could be a mere “trap” or just a “showcase” that Myanmar is slowly reverting to a libertarian state, it is at best a desperate attempt at legitimacy for a despotic state. It may also be the result of international pressure on the military junta and we daresay proves that no nation is an island. And that the yearning for freedom is universal. So in a week’s time - the world witnessed a review of class lesson called Victory 101. Pacquiao and Suu Kyi - in their respective triumphs - proved th at spo rts excel len ce, li ke freedom is never free. One has to pay the price, one has to sacrifice.

November 28, 2010 Giving importance to the farmers, Vice Governer Roel Degamo shows his unending support in the agricultural prowess of the province during the inauguration of the Barangay Agricultural Development Center of BongBong, Valencia.

able Tennis players in Dumaguete City and Negros Oriental can have a good chance in the national level competition”. This was perceived by mos t of the s pectators who witnes sed the tournament last November 20-21, 2010 held at the ground floor of the Negros Oriental Convention Center.

Sponsored by the Dum aguete City Government in cooperation with Killer Pong and the Negros Oriental Table Tennis Association (NORTATA) as one of the highlights of the Dumaguete City Fiesta Celebration, the 1 st Sandurot Table Tennis tournament attracted a total of seventy-five (75) players from Dumaguete City and neighboring towns.

tests that God healed my heart. There was no more mitral valve prolapse (MVP) as diagnosed earlier.  They say that if we worry about tomorrow, we are borrowing in the future and if it doesn’t happen, we worried in vain and even if it does happen we have worried twice. It is hard to trust God when we don’t see the whole picture. It is human to doubt, and to worry can be a way of life. But how can we not trust the One who laid the foundations of the earth? The God who made the clouds its garments and the treasury of snow and hail? The same Creator who has given the mind wisdom and the understanding of the heart, who is beautiful beyond words? How can we doubt His love? If He has given His most precious Son Jesus to die for our sins, so that those who believe in Him will not perish but will have everlasting life, surely He cares so much. Have you tried so hard to solve you own problems?  I did many times but my solutions fail. I think and do things my own way, until I just let go, and let God.

Some were Spaniards like Fr. Manuel de Sanz y Aranaz in the 1770s, while others were natives as Fr. Jose Tebes in the 1790s. Fr. Jose Barredo was parish priest in 1801-1831. Fr. Juan Ignacio Galan was pastor in 1831-1838. Finally, Fr. Jose Gorriz was the last Spanish proprietary parish priest of Dumaguete in 1838-1855.

Are we foolishly rejecting things which the rich co nsu mer so cieties have long associated with progress?   we shall examine th e real issu es involved, and show why the pro posed leg islation has proved so d ivisive. Wh at is “rep rodu ctive health?” In its plain meaning, it refers (or ought to refer) to a person’s health in both body and mind, in the mature and responsible use of his or her reproductive organs and faculties; its primary concern is the safe, licit and natural generation and proper upbringing of a new human being (a child). But as a United Nations’ verbal construct, “reproductive health” or “reproductive rights” refers to what an individual wants to do with his or her body and sexuality, including but not limited to the “right to abortion.” This language was formally incorporated into official U.N.

Thus, when some women, who had been victims of Ch ina’s “o ne male child policy,” heard it for the first time at the 1995 Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, they literally danced for joy, believing they would finally be able to bear as many c hildren as th ey wanted —— only to be told pro mptly that the phrase meant “the right n ot to reproduce at all.” As used in the bills, “reproductive health” is not concerned with the safe, licit and natural generation and moral upbringing of any new human being. Its main thrust is the very opposite —— how to prevent pregnancy and reproduction through contraception and sterilization.The bills are, strictly, anti-reproduction bills.

Dumaguete 10 yrs later

Dear Editor:

D

umaguete City, a University town with gentle and friendly peo ple, a b eautiful scenic boulevard with nightlife galore where foreigners and the locals would mingle in peaceful coexistence. I will always cherish the glorious sunrise in the boulevard while having my early morning coffee at one of the joints before starting on my early morning walk. A good place health wise and peaceful at that. No fear of getting mugged even in the wee small hours of the morning. That was Dumaguete I knew then, ten years ago. Arrived recently, after being gone 10 years, as mentioned earlier, to visit my brother and his kids, I noticed a big change. A lot of new structures reflecting the booming economy of this city. However, I also felt sad because the boulevard has changed drastically. For one, the pollution is starting to get bad. The clean, fresh air which everyone used to enjoy is gone because of the various types

of transpo that ply the boulevard. The noise caused by motorbikes with no mufflers can cause stress and ear damage of course. Frequenting my old haunts, I had the chance to meet my foreign friends who have been resident here for quite a while and they told me that they have relocated elsewhere to the suburbs where there is peace and quiet. They only come to the city to buy their supplies and meet their frien ds in t heir fa vorit e cafes o r restaurants. In fairness, I noticed the presence of police visibility which makes a visitor feel secure. Hope that this is permanent or is it because the fiesta will be celebrated soon? In closing, progress has its ups and downs. One should focus on the downside so that your city will entice more local an d fo reig n visit ors and the local residents can start breathing fresh, clean air once more! – DMS

PhilHealth bares new mode of remittance reporting

I

n its continued effort to provide online services to its members and stakeholders, PhilHealth launches the Electronic Premium Remittance System (EPRS). This system is a web-based application which may be used by employers in the preparation and submission of their monthly remittance reports. Employers who wish to adopt the said reporting scheme will be required to attend the scheduled orientation of the PhilHealth Collection Section on activation and creation of their user

accounts. A certificate will be given upon activation of user account to access the system. Once enrolled in the EPRS, an employer will no longer be allowed to use all other modes of remittance reporting. Based on Circular No. 30, series of 2010, those who will be using the system must meet all the following requirements: internet access and email address; have their own PhilHealth Employer Number (PEN); have an updated list of employees

with PhilHealth Identification Numbers (PINs); and are directly remitting to PhilHealth through the Over-theCounter Collection System. Employers who cannot com ply with the basic requirements for EPRS may continue using the manual reporting for those with 10 employees or less, or softcopy reporting such as the PhilHealth Premium Remittance System (PPRS) and the Excel File Template.#

No rice deficit

T

he National Food Authority (NFA) of Negros Oriental assured the Negrenses enough supply of rice that would last for the remaining days of the year as Vietnam, the world’s second-largest rice exporter, sent a shipment of Vietnam Rice just this November.

NFA Information Officer Salvacion Uy said that the daily monitoring on NFA’s inventory and sales indicate that no rice deficit will occur within the year. She also said that there is enough rice for public consumption even during emergencies and calamities. If supplies

of local rice run out, there is still the Vietnam Rice, which consumers can buy for Php25.00 per kilo. Furthermore, Uy expects to acquire more rice supply from the Regional Office.

Bullied “attacker” hacked

T

he thought of someone bullying him caused a videoke bar customer in Barangay Bunawon, Siaton to be hacked on November 21 at around 4 :15 pm after he allegedly attacked another customer.

The police identified the victim and suspect as Paquito L. Libar, 39 years old and Ian A. Panganiban, 19 years old, respectively. Both are single and residents of Brgy. Bunawon, Siaton. Investigation shows that Libar was singing with his friends when Panganiban entered the bar and congratulated the victim’s companion. After singing, he was also congratulated by Panganiban, but was

misinterpreted by Libar as a form of bullying. Libar and his friends followed Panganiban outside the bar and allegedly attacked him. In defense, the suspect hacked Libar on the different parts of his body causing his admission in the hospital. Panganiban voluntarily surrendered to Police Officer (PO3) Jonathan Rubio who was then on-duty at Bunawon Gangpanan Center.

Woman slapped life For double violation

A

double violation committed in the same day caused the penalty of life imprisonment, plus another 12 – 14 years of imprisonment, slapped on a woman who violated two sections of Article II of R.A. 9165 (Illegal Drugs) set by the Special Court for Drug Cases, RTC, Branch 30, Dumaguete City Convicted was Erlinda Elentorio, who pleaded guilty last November 26 by Special Court for Drug Cases pr esid in g Ju dge Cr esen cio Tan. Elontorio was caught selling 0.05 gram of shabu, violating Section 5, Article II of RA 9165, during a buy bust operation conducted by NBI and PDEA agents on March 6, 2007 at Zone 4, Barangay Looc, Dumaguete City – the same place of residence of Elentor io . Af ter bein g ar rested , Elentorio was seen possessing 0.06

gram of shabu contained in another plastic sachet, which she held in her hand – a violation of Section 11, Article II of the same R.A. Conviction is proper in prosecutions involving illegal sale of regulated or prohibited drugs if the following elements are present: (1) the identity of the buyer an d the seller, the ob ject, an d the consideration; and (2) the delivery of the thing sold and the payment thereto.

NegOr’s endangered species

F

ive kinds of endangered animals here in Negros Oriental are nearing its extinction due to human activities that threaten their safety and existence.

Wildlife advocate and environmentalist Pol Carino said the animals nearing their end are the Negros Bleeding Heart P igeon, Callao, Negros Forest Frog, Golden Brown Flying Fox, and Chevnous Fruit Bats. According to Carino, the number one predator of these species are the human beings since some of them, especially the fruit bats, are good to

eat because of the fact that they are clean. The Bleeding Heart Pigeon, on the other hand, can only be seen here in Negros Oriental and if they go extinct, the province, or the country for this matter, won’t have any more birds of the same species. Meanwhile, the environmentalist is hoping that the law prohibiting bathunting will strongly be implemented.

General adaptation syndrome (GAS) – t’s a great pity that most of our people are unaware as of to what particular state of health they are in. Knowledge of these vital stages of health could possibly prevent them from progressing early into the second stage (resistant stage). If one is careful about his general health, then, he may still live longer and could still enjoy a longer lifespan. However, if he reaches the third stage (Exhaustion stage) – a serious stage, then, his health becomes precarious for this is an irreversible stage wherein death comes anytime. Dr. Hans Selye studied this concept of physiological

I

stress response of our body and terms it as –“General Adaptatio n Syn dr ome.” These response symptoms represent a universal pattern of defense reactions serving to protect the persons overall health and its integrity. The General Adaptatio n Syn dr ome (GAS) consists of a series of thr ee stages – alarm, resistance, and exhaustion – corresponding to the three different reactions of the b od y to any stressfu l situation. The three stages are: 1. Alarm stage. This is the initial reaction to stress and is marked by activation of the fight-flight response (a physiological arousal which helps to cope with survival and threatening situations) and maintain the body’s homeostasis (balanced the optimum function of the body). However, the body’s defense is slightly dropped because of the threat to one’s well- being. Ther e is no psychosomatic problem at

this stage yet. Individual is still coping well if he lives very carefully and avoids destructive vices and bad habits. 2. Resistance stage. This is the period when the body will react to the continued and prolonged stresses. Most o f th e p hysio lo gical responses return to normal levels, but the body uses up great stor es of en er gy. Adaptation resources are immobilized (i.e. endocrine and immun e systems, glucose, minerals, etc.) to combat the stressors and are still helping maintain its physiological functions and integrity. The person does no realize that resistance stage is taking a toll on his organ cau sing p sycho so matic sympto ms ( examp le: stomach pains, indigestion, hyperacidity, high blood pressure, etc.) The person just self-medicates himself or may visit a doctor w ho prescribes some medicines to palliate his complaints. He is like a boxer who still c ontinue s to fight but

DR. ANGEL V. SOMERA Fellow, Phil. Psychiatric Association Diplomate, Phil. Board of Psychiatry

bec oming wea ke r and wobbly and just hopes to end the round win or lose. 3. Exhaustion stage. The s tres s s till c ontinue s uncontrollably over several months. A lot of medications are prescribed after several consultations just to maintain dear life. This stage is marked by actual breakdown of some internal organs, a full-blown stomach ulcer, heart failure, renal trouble, uncontrollable hypertension, diabetes, etc. The person is exhausted and suddenly collapses and needs immediate hospitalization. If his infe ction-fighting immune syste m we akens markedly, and has not been tre ated s uc ce s sfully, the organ now tota lly brea ks down and death results. So if one c annot c ontrol the incessant stress in his life, then, stress will surely kill him. Don’t ever blame anyone, or God, but you for your ignorance and ha rdheadedness.

agencies from promoting any method of family planning including contraception except abortion, because the Constitution mandates the protection of the mother and that of the unborn child from the time of conception. Thus, the Constitution is clear that the child is considered an unborn child once the egg of the woman in the womb is fertilized by the sperm and attaches to the womb of the mother, that is the time of the conception of the unborn. Anyway, just divide the house and let Congress approve or disapprove the Reproductive Health Bill. If the President agrees he will sign it into law. The Church or any group as the affected party could challenge its constitutionality before the Supreme Court, so that once and for all we can end the debate or the validity of the Reproductive Health Bill shall be decided with FINALITY.

Two rebel siblings fall in Sta. Catalina

T

wo siblings who are suspected members of the New Peoples Army in Nagbinlod Sta. Catalina belonging to the Sentro de Gravidad platoon Southeast Front, Komiteng Rehiyonal Sentral Bisayas fell to the military in different fashions. Lt. Col. Pio Diñoso Commanding Officer of the 79th Infantry Battalion

announced the surrender of Jocelyn Namoco alias Lea, who turned herself in to live a normal life. Meanwh ile, h er b rother Roq ue Namoco of Nagbinlod, Sta. Catalina has been charged for illegal possession of firearms days after he was arrested with a .357 pistol. He reportedly admitted to

have participated in the burning of a farm tractor owned by the Teves family in 2008 at Tamlang Valley. The military has again renewed calls for the NPA members to return to the government and cease their fruitless rebellion.

Minors as marijuana couriers held by cops

P

olicemen invited for questioning two boys who came to retrieve a bag from a shopping store, which was found to contain one-half kilo of dried marijuana leaves in 30 matchboxes.

Dumaguete City PNP Officer-inCharge Chief Inspector Baby Abellon said that the bag was left on Wednesday during the charter day celebration in the courtesy booth of a store but was not claimed after closing hour. Per company policy, the store’s personnel opened the bag and saw the d ried marijuana leav es. Th e management promptly informed the

authorities of the discovery. The next day, the two minors with the claim tag arrived to retrieve the bag but were instead escorted by the police for questioning. The boys said they were just asked to retrieve the bag and were unaware of the contraband inside. Abellon theorize that drug peddlers are again using minors in their illegal trade knowing that the minors cannot be detained and charged by authorities.

Chief cop: suertres less priority over drugs

D

umaguete City Chief of Police Supt. Leopoldo Cabanag is not in a rush to intensify the anti-suertres drive as he is more inclined to focus in the campaign against illegal drugs.

Cabanag, who is currently pursuing further studies, therefore, unavailable most of the time, maintains he can halt the illegal drugs trade before his 3-year tour of duty ends. Like Mayor Chiquiting Sagarbarria, Cabanag believes illegal drugs is more dangerous to the community than the

illegal numbers game like suertres, which the Cath olic Ch ur ch has str on gly condemned. Cabanag said it appears that the bulk of the illegal drugs activities have now shifted from Barangay Looc to Candayong in Calindagan, the home barangay of Mayor Sagarbarria.

Tan, Jr. Flores violated Section 11, Article II of R.A. No. 9165 after being seen by p olice o ff icers o n d uty possessing 0.01 gram of shabu at about 3:30 in the afternoon of February 21, 2008 at Zone 2, Barangay Loo c, Dumagu ete City. Und er the “plain view ” doctrine, unlawful objects within the plain view of an officer who has the right to be in the position to have that view are subject to seizure and may be presented in evidence. In drug cases, an arrest made in flagrante delicto does not require that the arresting officers possess expert knowledge of the substance seized, or that they perform precise scientific tests to determine its exact nature. The defense of Flores was pr ed icated o n bare d en ial, n oth in g mo re. Considering the testimonies and eviden ce o f th e

prosecution, the denial of the accused failed. Denial is considered as an inherently weak defense, for it can easily be concocted and is a common standard line of defense in drug cases. Flores also failed to adduce clear and convincing evidence to overturn the presumption that the arresting officers regularly performed their duties. Flores failed to show by any satisfactory degree of proof that the police officers were impelled by ill-motives to testify against him. Stated otherwise, the presumption of innocence accorded the accused had been overturned by the evidence presented by the prosecution. The prosecution has convincin gly proved beyond reasonable d ou bt th at the accu sed committed th e cr ime charged.

Vizconde massacre ... (From page 4) accused to be present at the scene of the crime upon its commission, then the accused will be acquitted. Hubert Webb has presented certificates from the United States Department of State attesting to incontrovertible records that he entered the United States before the crime happened, and nev er returned to the Philippines during the commission of the crime, and even long after. He has video proof of his presence in the U.S. There were checks, sales receipts, drivers license, that is indicative of Hubert W ebb’s presence int he U.S. at the time the crimes were committed. The second scenario would be a declaration by the Supreme Court of sufficient reasonable doubt as to the culpability of Hubert Webb. In this sense, an acquittal is in order, based on reasonable doubt. Also, upon review by the Supreme court of the records, it is not unlikely that it may find sufficient reason to declare that the accused could not have possibly committed the crime, which would inevitably warrant an acquittal. Another point raised by Hubert Webb is the loss of vital evidence that would have an exculpatory effect. Hubert Web has raised the fact that DNA specimen collected by the authorities were lost while in the custody of the government. The absence of such potentially exculpating evidence, is tantamount to a denial of due process, that would necessitate an acquittal, says Hubert Webb. The final resolution of the Vizconde massacre, thus hinges on four possible scenarios. First is upholding the convictions by the lower courts. Second, is acquittal based on reasonable doubt that the accused committed the crime. Third, is acquittal upon a finding (after a review of the records) that the accused could not have possibly committed the crime. Fourth, is an acquittal on the ground of a denial of due process. Hubert Webb, I think, has good reason to hope.

More improvement ... new prawl cars because our police vehicles are already too dilapidated. We ask our city officials from the mayor, especially our city vice mayor, and our councilors to be serious in upgrading the anti crime capabilities of our city police. It would seem that our city officials are treating the peace and order drive with kids’ gloves. First, equip the police with enough superior m obility over the crim inals, superior fire power than our criminals, superior training and superior communications equipment, over those of the criminals. These call for a major-major budgetary allocation once and for all. Once we have superior crime fighting capabilities, then progress will follow because investors’ confidence shall then take over. Today, we do not have both: superior police equipments, and investors. Mayor Sagarbarria who is a staunch businessman should be the first to howl for better police equipment. What he is doing now is not good enough for most people. -o0oThe governors of Central Visayas have decided to submit a short list to Pres. Aquino and give the president a free hand to appoint the Regional Developm ent Council Chairman for Central Visayas. The short list include acting Gov. Roel de Gamo, Cebu Gov. Gwen Garcia, Bohol Gov. Edgar Chatto and Siquijor Gov. Orlando Fua. Previously only Cebu Mayor Michael Rama and Gov. Gwen Garcia were the nominees. But Siquijor Gov. Fua prevailed upon all RDC members who voted 40 to 9 votes in favor of giving Pres. Aquino the blanket authority to appoint the RDC chairman of his choice. This will also assure the region of adequate attention in its infrastructure requirements during the PNoy administration. President Benigno Aquino III as of now, has not made up his mind yet whom to designate Chairman and Co-Chairman of the Regional Development Council (RDC) in Central Visayas.

BIR closes stores

to their failure to meet their tax liabilities, four firms in Negros DueOriental were closed down by the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR).

Jose Senador, Local BIR Tax Services Section chief, revealed during a symposium at Negros Oriental State University (NORSU) - Bais Campus that since January the local BI R h er e has ordered the closure of four business establishments in the province for failing to pay necessary business taxes and the non- issuance of Official Receipts (OR) to its customers. During the symposium facilitated by the Philippine Information Agency here, Senador advised the public,

especially the students, to always demand for an OR every time they buy goods and services. He said that the public should ask for an OR and make it a habit since it is in this way that the people can d o so mething fo r th e government. He assured that the local BIR is closely monitoring business enterprises in the province and the agency is willing to hunt over business institutions that violate the law.

Crecencio Agad, BIR Revenue District Officer, disclosed that the local BIR has a target of P 1, 085,820 billion this year. According to him, this is the highest target collection that was given to their office. As o f last week, the collection of local BIR has reached to more than P 1.053 billion. Agad is hoping that the BIR here will collect the target given to their office at the end of the year.
