WHY SUERTRES & JUETENG
cannot be erradicated he answer is simple: suertres and jueteng cannot be eradicated because Filipinos patronize them and even paysup to keep them going. The law enforcers know (including PNoy) that they cannot be eradicated. So we cannot join those laughing over people who think they can stop illegal bookies. Here is another reason: -o0oSuertres and Jueteng winning combinations are based on the LEGAL games of Sweepstakes and Pagcor. Whatever are the PCSO winnings, will also be the winning numbers of suertres even jueteng. The difference is that suertres and Jueteng tickets are sold very cheap which the masses can afford (P1 can win P500). So, why will the poor bet on the more expensive ticket (P10. Can win P5000) when the odds of winning (or losing) are the same? -o0oBesides, the network of these illegal bookies are excellent. They can monitor the winning combination so fast so they can still make the massa believe that they have “connections” to make them win. So, the more the massa will believe them because sometimes, the bookies’ combinations win, too! In short, it’s a simple PR battle. -o0oSo the real enemy of the government against illegal suertres and jueteng is the public PSYCHE itself, or the concept . How can you kill a viable concept? Besides, so many other factors follow. Like the following: -o0oHow many law enforcers are “on the take” courtesy of jueteng and suertres financiers? Every moron knows that. Is it not happening in Negros Oriental? Not all morons know that. This report that even Luzon clergymen are on the take is worse. In short, the psyche or the concept has to be killed if the illegal gambling game has to be stopped. But, can it be stopped at all? Masiao before was based on Jai alai official results, and the bookies were fast in monitoring the results to the provinces, even faster than the official operators themselves. They sleep by day, and work by night. -o0oSo let us not kid ourselves, and PNoy should know better. Arresting the jueteng lords will only give rise to their next of kins. Afterall, the socalled “financiers” are not the REAL financiers, but fronts of the real ones. It’s like the Chinese soliders in the Korean war: the more you massacre them, the more soldiers will advance, until you consume all your bullets. -o0oFilipinos, in the absence of anything worthwhile to do among most of the masses, simply gamble. They even use spiders to fight each other and bet on it, incredible ! -o0oThe only way to stop these illegal games is when PEOPLE stop patronizing them. How? By a dose of their own medicine. How? By simulating another illegal bookie joint, and compete with the existing one. When the tides are shifted to the fake bookies, then they run away with the money and disappear. Next time, people won’t trust the remaining ones. That is how masiao died, and so did Jai alai. Otherwise, tuloy ang laro bibi! -o0oHISTORY: Interior and Local Government Secretary Jesse Robredo said Tuesday that his department is implementing a comprehensive three-point agenda to stamp out the illegal numbers game of “jueteng” in the country.

Lawyer-less court proceedings for small claims
he Supreme Court has innovated a legal proceeding that prohibits lawyers from participating.
If a suit is generally a claim for small amounts of money like unpaid debt, unpaid rent, or uncollected receivables, then, it should be filed in a small claims proceeding. The Supreme Court has set up 1,137 courts nationwide that will decide small claims cases.
If the claim of a creditor is P100,000 or less, the creditor can file a suit or claim in court without any lawyer.
When Senators grilled media
hen the Senate justice committee chaired by Sen. Gringo Honasan grilled at least five pillars of the broadcast industry last Tuesday, regarding the conduct of the broadcast “Live” coverage of the failed hostage saga last August 23, it was evident that media—— and thanks to news hens like Maria Rissa, Jessica Sojo, Luchi Cruz and others, —who stood their ground as we once more support our colleagues in maintaining that media lapses may have been made, but the bigger mistake was in the manner by which the brother of the hostage taker was mishandled by the police which was the immediate and proximate cause of the rampage, which killed eight Hongkong hostages on board the hijacked tourist bus at the Quirino Grandstand. For one thing the hostage taker was engaged in a friendly interview with the media during the incident. In short, there was rapport between media and the hostage taker. The mistake was that media was not supposed to talk , short of negotiating with the hostage taker. But the police committed the bigger mistake of
not restricting media from talking with the hostage taker. It was only after the killings that media was blamed why newsmen took active part in talking with the hostage taker. Lessons learned: the Senate policy makers in aid or legislation must now urge the police that they must to come up with rules and guidelines for media’s behavior during crisis situation. But first, crisis situation must be defined. Media on the other hand, as a learning experience must come up with mutual ethical standards in SOPs in covering a crisis situation, even if they do not belong to the same organization. But they are media just the same and have mutual interests in covering the news. What we believe which is the most important lesson is for media to draw the line when lives are at stake, and are in danger if details were aired and known by either party, whether on the good or bad side. For us, when it’s over , the most successful part of any negotiation during a crisis situation is, that no life was lost, — even if it ended in an impasse.
The courts have ready forms for filing these “small claims” suits. Lawyers are prohibited from participating in the small claims proceedings, unless it is the lawyer who is filing a small claims suit in his own behalf. A significant innovation under this new procedure is that the proceedings will be informal, notlegalistic, not adversarial. Moreover, under small claims proceedings, the judge will immediately issue a judgment on the first and only hearing. So the resolution of small claims cases is fast. No postponements are allowed, except under extraordinary circumstances. Under small claims proceedings, the claimant and the defendant will be encouraged to settle their claims amicably by the judge. What are the cases that may be filed by non-lawyer claimants under the small claims proceedings? These claims or demands may be: For money owed under any of the following: 1. Contract of Lease (like unpaid rents of apartment); 2. Contract of Loan (ordinary loan of money) 3. Contract of Services (like unpaid car repair services) 4. Contract of Sale (like sale of any item P100,000 or less) 5. Contract of Mortgage; Turn to page 18
World’s view of P-Noy
arely 100 days in office, President Noynoy Aquino is seen waltzing into a sweet honeymoon with the world. This is true despite the irreverent and major, major disappointment of the Hongkong populace over the eight hostage deaths in the Black Monday at the Luneta. Yes, tourism may have taken a temporary dive - but believe us, this is as temporary as Kris Aquino’s love affairs.
B Dateline Manila by Bingo P. Dejaresco
Even here at home, save for a few Doubting Thomases and the perennial anti- government fellas, the Luneta episode is not going to drastically alter the inaugural rating of 9 of 10 giving the Aquino scion the benefit of the doubt. But why is the world view just as important as the natives’ view? Let us not forget we are a Third World country which is in an almost perpetual state of a budget deficit. And we are a Third World country bereft of solid infrastructure.
Simply put, a budget deficit means - the country spends more than it earns in revenues and inflows; the balance has to be filled in by borrowings or foreign donations. An internationally discredited regime (like the waning years of the Marcos years) will be blacklisted by foreign lenders and who will ever donate to a country where you have no frigging idea where one’s currency donation is going to end up with? From the world view, barring none (after Marcos), the head start at the bark of the
gun (at the starting racing point) has never been better for any administration compared to that of P-Noy’s. Even Cory Aquino’s 1986 drama, was largely political romanticism rather than dogmatic economic faith in the Philippines. Consider the P-Noy’s view from the periscope of the world.

E need to be careful not to restrict the relevance of maintenance to health reasons. The duty of maintenance has a much wider applicability in our life than is usually known or admitted. In fact, it’s a lifelong responsibility.
We have to say this, because somehow it has become a term associated only with the oldies, and even with some young ones, who have some medical conditions—hypertension, diabetes, etc. This is a very unfair, partial and dangerous understanding of maintenance. For example, maintenance is indispensable in the proper running of an entity or institution. How many times have we heard— and have been disappointed— that a certain project that had a brilliant beginning folded up precisely because of lack of maintenance? This example can be multiplied endless times. Roads, bridges, buildings are rotting away because of lack of maintenance. A business enter-

It takes about a week for the egg to hatch depending on the species or climate. After more than three weeks, the egg becomes a larva (caterpillar). Now, the destruction starts.

ast week I talked about House Bill 13, that seeks to restore the rights of the unborn child that RH Bill 5043 wants to take away. This week I would like to continue my reflections on this concern and share some thoughts with you about the importance of the family in building a strong Culture of Life.
The Christian family is the foremost essential institution for the conservation of society and the attainment of the common FR. ROY for good of every individual. The CIMAGALA family has a special mission from God: to appreciate fertility as a gift from Him, and to safeguard, to reveal and to communicate life in all its fullness as a direct connection with the Divine. The future of this country, as well as the future of mankind worldwide, rests in the bosom of the family. And how can there be a family if there
are no children? How can there be a true family if there is no commitment in marriage between the father and the mother? Even the State recognizes the sanctity of family life in the 1987 Philippine Constitution, Art II, Sections 11 and 12. Section 11 states: The State values the dignity of every human person and guarantees full respect for human rights. Section 12 clearly emphasizes the importance of the family: The State recognizes the sanctity of family life and shall protect and strengthen the family as a basic autonomousTurn socialtoinstitu page 10

Culture of ...
From page 6 expression of our cooperation in God’s abiding providence over us and everything that happens in the world. Divine providence, which is God’s governance over his creation, always requires our active cooperation. It never means we can be passive about things. God governs through us, who are his image and likeness, children of his who participate in his very own life and work. And so, we have to realize that this culture’s real foundation can ultimately be in the area of religion, in our relation with God. It cannot simply be anchored on purely human reasons—personal, social, economic, political, etc. While these human reasons
are unavoidable, we have to understand that they cannot stand on their own without being rooted on a deeper foundation, which can only be God. All this concerns about maintenance, governance, administration, continuity and fidelity need the animating principle of God, the beginning and end of all things, the Creator, the eternal being who is also a father to us who never lets us down. We have to be wary of a secular, worldly view about what can motivate and keep us in the duty of maintenance. It can have very many convincing arguments, but the moment it sets God aside, giving him, at best, only a decorative role, we would be in the wrong track. When a genuine living relation with God is achieved, our awareness of our duty of
maintenance, continuity and fidelity acquires its most fundamental and reliable source and lifeblood. It makes us keenly aware of the many aspects and requirements of this duty, capable of making long-term plans and strategies as well as flexible to cope with changing and unexpected circumstances. It tries its best to avoid a short-sighted vision of things and other stop-gap measures and knee-jerk reactions. In short, we would be doing all the tasks of maintenance out of pure love for God and for souls. The virtue of prudence will be lived to the hilt. The duty of maintenance then becomes an exciting adventure, with all the possible situations that can happen. But there’s confidence and sense of
security among those involved. With that love, we would be willing to go all the way, not afraid of sacrifices to be made, effort and expenses to be spent, etc. If corrections are needed, then they are done, irrespective of who gets hurt. The problem is that many of us still find it corny to put God and love in this equation. We prefer to remain in the humanly advantageous level—what is profitable, practical, popular, etc. This only shows lack of faith, or a faith not well digested and assimilated. With this attitude, we immediately narrow and impoverish our idea of maintenance and governance. And sooner or later, we get what we deserve—troubles, failures, disappointments, termination, etc. It’s important that we cultivate and spread this culture of maintenance far and wide. Its rudiments can be done in the families, in schools, churches. Then it can influence our neighborhood, our cities and the government.

A WORK TO DO For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. EPHESIANS 2:10 very man has work laid out for him to do; every man’s life is a plan of the Almighty, and way back in the councils of eternity God laid out a work for each one of us. There is no man living that can do the work that God has got for me to do. No one can do it but myself. And if the work ain’t done, we will have to answer for it when we stand before God’s bar. For it says:
rich man had a fertile farm that produced fine crops. In fact, his barns were full to overflowing. So he said, ‘I know! I’ll tear down my barns and build bigger ones. Then I’ll have room enough to store everything. And I’ll sit back and say to myself, My friend, you have enough stored away for years to come. Now take it easy ! Eat, drink, and be merry!’ ‘But God said to him, ‘You fool! You will die this very night. Then who will get it all?’ ‘Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God.’ Luke 12:16-21
The rich man in Jesus’ story died before he could begin to use what was stored in his big barns. Planning for retirement—preparing for life before death—is wise but neglecting life af-
ter death is disastrous. If you accumulate wealth only to enrich yourself, with no concern for helping others you will enter eternity empty-handed.
be a lighthouse, let us be a tallow candle. There used to be a period when the people came up a meeting and brought their candles with them. The first one perhaps wouldn’t make a great illumination, but when two or three got there there would be more light. If the people of this city should do this now, if each one should come here with his candle, don’t you think there would be a good deal of light? Let all the gas be put out in this hall, and one solitary candle would give a little light here. If we can’t be a lighthouse, let us be a tallow candle. Someone said, “I can’t be anything more than a farthing sunlight.” Well, if you can’t be more than that, that is well enough. Be all you can. What makes the Dead Sea dead? Because it is all the time receiving, never giving out anything. Why is it that many Christians are cold? Because they are all the time receiving, never giving out anything. You go out every Sunday and hear good sermons, and think that is enough. You are all the time receiving these grand truths, but never give them out. When you hear it, go and scatter the sacred truth abroad. Instead of having one minister to preach to a thousand who never go to church or chapel. Instead of having a few, we ought to have thousands using the precious talents that God has given them.
Health care and “Humanae Vitae” ere is the address delivered Sept. 3 by Archbishop Zygmunt Zimowski, the president of the Pontifical Council for Health Care Ministry, at the four-day “Celebration of Love and Life” seminar that marked the 25th anniversary of the Pope Paul VI Institute. I would like to FR. GAMMY TULABING feature this item as a series JCD, VG starting this Sunday and the next six Sundays. Let us reflect on this and try to be open to what it tries to impart to us. ”Humanae Vitae” and the Pontifical Council for Health Care Workers As president of the Pontifical Council for Health Care Workers, I feel very honored to be invited by the Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction. By its nature, the subject entrusted to me, namely “‘Humanae Vitae’: The Challenge for Health Care Workers,” belongs in a certain sense to the mission of our dicastery, which has among its principal tasks that of coordinating the many bodies that directly involve Christians in the health care sector in order to foster and spread an increasingly better ethical-religious formation of Christian health care workers in the world. The Pontifical Council for Health Care Workers published an important document on the subject in 1995 with the significant title “Charter for Health Care Workers” in order to offer an overall summary of the position of the Church in relation to human life. This document is organized into three parts: 1) Procreation; 2) Life; and 3) Death. “Humanae Vitae” can thus be said to be a prophetic document of the magisterium of the Church, as can be evinced from the “Charter for Health Care Workers,” and constitutes a challenge for health care workers. Let us address this challenge together. ”Humanae Vitae”: An Encyclical, a Challenge It is well known that the encyclical “Humanae Vitae,” as a teaching of the pontifical magisterium, is a challenge, both in an objective sense and in a subjective sense; or, to put it another way, “Humanae Vitae” is today the subject of a challenge in a passive sense inasmuch as it is challenged, and in an active sense inasmuch as it challenges. In simpler words, the encyclical “HumanaeTurn Vitae” Paul 14 VI toofpage lends itself to a true
“Every man shall be brought unto judgement, and every one shall give an account of the deeds done in the body.” And it seems to me that every one of us ought to take this question home tonight: “Well, am I doing the work that God has for me to do?” God has got a work for every one of us to do. Now, in the parable the man who had two talents had the same reward as the man who had five talents. He heard the same words as the man who had five talents. “Well done, thou good and faithful servant, enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.” The men that take good care of the talents that God has loaned them, He always gives them more. But if we take the talent that God has given us, and lay it carefully in a napkin and bury it away, God will take even that from us. God doesn’t want a man that has got one talent to do the work of a man who has got ten. All a man has got to answer for is the one that God has given him. If we were all doing the work that God has got for us to do, don’t you see how the work of the Lord would advance? But some men are not satisfied with the talents they have, but are always wishing for some one else’s talent. Now, that is all wrong. It is contrary to the spirit of Christ. Instead of wishing for some one else’s talent, let us make the best use of the talents God has given us. Let us do all the business we can. If we can’t
Bishop Frederick Rooker hasZ. been 15
t years since I began writing about this first American Bishop of Jaro, Iloilo in 1903-1907. We remember Bishop Frederick Z. Rooker this Sunday, September 19, because it marks his 149th birth BY: REV. FR. ROMAN anniversary. C. Again, for those SAGUN. JR. who care to read about his life and work in the Philippines, this is what he wrote President Theodore Roosevelt on 9 May 1904, exactly sixteen days before he conducted his pastoral visit in Dumaguete, Negros Oriental: “In a recent trip through the province of Occidental Negros, the only province I have thus far been able to visit thoroughly, complaints were made to me in nearly every town that the native teachers were exercising a perverting influence religiously; and parents came to me with tears rolling down their faces, begging that I try to do something to have Catholic teachers placed in the schools so that the faith might not be taken from their little ones.” Six months after taking possession of his diocese, Bishop Rooker likewise complained to the President of the United States in his 14-page letter: “The teachers, who are educating the children and the officials, who are conducting the system, are, with the exception of an insignificant few, hostile to the Catholic Religion. True the head of the system is supposed to be a Catholic, but his entire administration proves him to be utterly uninterested in safeguarding the rights of this entirely catholic people to the respect due their faith.” The very long letter further pointed out: “The General Superintendent is a protégé of Stuntz, through whose influence he was appointed. Of the thirty-five or six division superintendents only one is a catholic, and a number of them are exclergymen who came here with the missionary spirit to convert these people and lift them out of to pecuniary page 16 Catholic darkness, but foundTurn greater gain in the school department.” The American Bishop of Jaro also com

e also said to His disciples: ‘There was a certain rich man who had a steward, and an accusation was brought to him that this man was wasting his goods. So he called him and said to him. ‘What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your stewardship. For you can no longer be steward.’ ‘Then the steward said within himself. ‘What shall I do? For my master is taking the stewardship away from me. I cannot deg. I am ashamed to beg. ‘I have resolved what to do, that when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into the
house.’ “So he called everyone of his master’s debtors to him; and said to the first, ‘How much do you owe my master?’ “And he said, ‘A hundred measure of oil.’ So he said to him, ‘Take your bill, and sit down quickly and write fifty.’ Then he said to another. ‘And how much do you owe?” So he said, ‘A hundred measures of wheat. And he said to him, your bill, and write eighty.’ So the master commanded the unjust steward because he had dealt shrewdly. For the sons of this world are more shrewd in their generation than the sons of light. “And I say to you, make friends for
“Be of good cheer!” Matthew 9:2, John 16:33, Matthew 14:37 (Part III) here is one more passage in which Jesus says: “Be of good cheer.” It is the well-known story of the journey of the disciples in the boat crossing the seas to the Dr. PROCESO UDARBE other side (about 11 miles) from Galilee. To them, it was a “mother of all storms.” When they had gone three or four miles, the waters grew so rough that these hardened men were terrified. My family and I have gone through our own “mother of all storms” ourselves. Some of you also have, I think. But there are all kinds of dangers, all kinds of threat, all kinds of calamities. In the case of disciples, their fear turned to terror. They were not only terrified that their boat would sink. They were terrified when they saw a figure moving towards them, walking on the sea. Like us, they believed in ghosts, and they cried “dunay abat” (there is a ghost). But as the figure approached their boat, the figure (Jesus) said: “Be of good cheer, it is I” (ego eimi in Greek). The words said by a loving Master made all the difference; for it was he who could say to the storm, “Peace, be still.” We live trustfully or we live fearfully, one or the other. To be sure,

we need to be prudent and sensible as we live today and look forward for tomorrow, but we live by faith or we are endlessly tortured by anxiety. Jesus was aware of the turbulent fears that infested the minds of His contemporaries as they engaged in the struggle for survival. He knew they faced hardships. We feel the same way today and we look in vain for human aid so we say, “Speak, Lord, to my trembling soul,” and the Lord says: “It is I, be not afraid.” We are sometimes overcome by our fears. The kind of world we live in knows storms of various magnitude. Jesus says to us: “Be not afraid, it is I.” Harold Sala adds a dimension to the story—that our Lord does not force himself into our boat. He comes in response to our invitation. And this is true, isn’t it? Are we willing to say: “Jesus, Savior, pilot me over life’s tempestuous sea?” So, let us be of good cheer. - For as far as the east is from the west; so far has he removed our sins from us. - For as Jesus has overcome the powers of evil in the world, we, too, can overcome these in our life here on earth and right now. - For as we traverse the angry seas of this life—with its dangers, we hear Jesus’ voice: Be of good cheer; it is I.

Years of inaction saw Pestano’s murder and forgotten Navy desaparecidos displayed for the world to gawk at. Government must report within 180 days, “what enforceable remedies and solutions were taken,” the UN wrote.. “Impeach the Ombudsman,” Inquirer’s editorial demanded. The House Committee on Justice will receive evidence to determine “ sufficiency of cause.” On Sept. 21, if 91 congressmen see the obvious, they’ll lob charges to the Senate. “We’re cautiously optimistic,” Rep. Walden Bello says. “Momentum is on our side.” So are key administration legislators. Including Deputy Speaker Lorenzo “Erin” Tanada, Raul Daza, and Isabelle Climaco. Arroyo turncoats signed up. Is this the end of impeachments hostaged by Malacanang? Joseph Estrada let Elections Commissioner Luzviminda Tancangco off the hook..

Navy enlisted men who disappeared. Among the desaparecidos is Zosimo Villanueva. From the naval station in TawiTawi, he tipped Pestano on the loading of hot logs and drugs on RPB Bacolod City. A Caviteño, Villanueva lived with his Muslim wife in Bongao. After Pestano was murdered, Villanueva “disappeared” while on a mission. Lost at sea, said other sailors who returned. . He’s still missing. The Navy produced no official investigation report . The Philippines, in fact, glossed over Villanueva’s death. The UN pointedly observed. The disappearance remains uninvestigated. “Foul play is suspected.” Fidel Tagaytay served as radio operator when RPB Bacolod City meandered all over Manila Bay before docking off Roxas Blvd — when Pestano’s body was found. As radio operator, Tagaytay, was privy to communications from Navy headquarters to the ship. In a handwritten note, Tagaytay’s wife, Leonila, sent the Navy the said letter stating: Fidel had been ordered to report to Navy headquarters. Since then, he, too, disappeared. There has been “no action / investigation by the Navy,” the UN snapped. What Turn was to Ensign Alvin page 16 Farone’s role? He was aboard BRP Bacolod City .

tion. The very first Article of the Family Code of the Philippines provides that marriage is an “inviolable social institution, a special contract of permanent union between a man and a woman.” Although the State has no authority over internal family affairs, it does regulate family relations that affect third-party and public interests such as abuse of spouse or children and the parental obligation to give support to the children. The family is an economic community as it provides for each member’s daily needs; it is an education unit responsible for teaching every member the proper moral values of love, forgiveness, justice, obedience, honesty and fairness. The family is a household of faith, an incubator of spiritual belief, religious convictions and traditions with the objective of growing these beliefs into positive moral action in everyday life. The Christian family, therefore, is a wellspring of the Culture of Life, following our Creator’s example in procreating life, providing for its needs, and seeing that this life is good (Genesis 1:31). It is a sanctuary of human life and, in itself, is a community of life and love. And again, I ask: how can there be a real family if there are no children? How can there be a true family if there is no commitment in marriage between the father and the mother? This is the challenge to us today. We need to stop grumbling, pointing fingers and criticizing, and begin to celebrate the Culture of Life (instead of the Culture of Death) actively, dynamically in our lives and in our families day by day. We can’t transform and change society, or others, without first changing ourselves and leading the way through our example of life. Practice makes perfect! Let us put “family” into practice so that we can approach the perfection of family life that God intended when He established the home in His divine plan for mankind.

“Every man has a wild animal in him” - Frederick the Great
he recent bloody hostage-taking at the Quirino Grandstand in Manila of Chinese Tourists from Hong Kong is evidently a clear manifestation of an anthropological concept that “man has a wild (untamed) animal in him.” Anthropologists claim that “man, as long as he is alive, is a potential killer.” Thus natural concept of killing is vividly illustrated by the Ecclesiastes of the Holy Bible – “There is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven: … A time to kill and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up.”
A past issue of Time Magazine has a very intriguing question of “What makes us Good/Evil?” The author Jeffrey Kluger remarks that “Humans are the earth’s most noble creatures and at the same time the most savage.” Scientific studies have discovered very intriguing findings into the substrata of our human behavior. Certainly, man is the most unique among Earth’s creatures. Man is the only specie who has the gift of tongue (language), uses tools for work and development and a highly developed sense of morality, understanding of good and evil, of what it means to suffer and feels the pain of others – this is the essence of being human. “Moral judgment is consistent from person to person and follows rules of order,” says Mark Harper. Psychosocial scientists have mentioned a list of altruistic individuals like Mother Theresa of Calcutta, Mohandas Gandhi of India, Luther King, Jr. of America, Dalai Rama of Tibet and other dedicated benevolent individuals who have in-
spired the world with awe and reverence. On the other hand of the spectrum are people known for there ferocity and malevolence – Adolf Hitler of Germany, Joseph Stalin of Russia, Augusto Pinochet of Chile, Osama Bin Ladin of Saudi, millionaire and Pol Pot of the brutal Khmer Rouge of Cambodia. Neuroscientists using the latest brain scanner – (MRI) have now found in our brain major areas that tackle moral dilemmas or moral decision-making process. They have specifically identified the brain area known as AMYDALA, deep emotional structure that helps us make the connection between bad acts and punishments. The MEDIAL PREFRONTAL CORTEX is associated with emotion and social thinking

and if damaged, the personality of the person will change from kindliness to belligerence. The DORSOLATERAL PREFRONTAL CORTEX is responsible for cool utilitarian choices. This area provides executive control of our behavior. Now, we can say that with the advent of this scientific discovery of certain areas of the brain that strongly influences the functions of whether one becomes a truly “good” or a “bad” person. Man has now one of the most reliable gauges in determining his self-inclination as to his being a “beast” or an “altruistic person.” This greatly depends on how he takes care and cultivates his God-given brain. Here’s Gil Stern’s view on MAN – “Man is a complex being who makes deserts bloom – and the lakes die.” How true, indeed!

has to change. And for starters, it has to shed its old skins off. As the skin falls away, a beautiful different image emerges. As if all the colors in your flower garden have turned into a two winged, awesome creature such as a butterfly. A delicate work of art, flying around you and becomes part of life as a cycle. We also pass different stages in life. Maybe in most part of our existence we were like the caterpillars. We take and we don’t want to give. We expect to be understood rather than to understand. Yet in our imperfections, those who care for us never gave up. They stood by our side, praying and hoping that someday or even sometimes, they don’t see us as caterpillars but a beautiful butterfly. They don’t see the tree in wintertime, but a tree laden with fruits during Summer or a promise in Spring. God can turn everything beautiful in His time.

yourselves by unrighteous mammon that when you fail, they may receive you into an everlasting home. “He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much. ‘Therefore is you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches.! And if you have not been faithful in what is another man’s, who will give you what is your own? No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”

Weapon used in brutal slay found
Police takes cutody of the cane-cutter blade “lading” which Police Senior Inspector Josephine Llena, chief of the City SOCO team said was allegedly one of the weapons used in the brutal murder of Michael Torres and his mother Monica over a land dispute in Barangay Azagra, Tanjay City last week. Some of the suspects have been identified and arrested.
Two men injured in Banilad stabbing
wo men were injured in two separate Monday stabbing incidents in Barangay Banilad, Dumaguete City. Authorities identified the first victim as 26-year-old Joselito Gargar who was stabbed in the waist by suspect Talino Dela Cruz using a 9-inch long folding knife. The suspect surrendered to the authorities and admitted the offense. The weapon used was also turned-over to the police. Several hours later, a 24-year-old man legedly stabbed several times by Francisco identified as Jason Dante was brought to Nemaria, 42, a relative of the victim’s livethe Holy Child Hospital after he was alTurn to page 18
2 Bloods members arrested in Sibulan
olicemen have apparently showed some steely resolve after they arrested two alleged members of the BLOODS gang, which has been wreaking havoc in Sibulan town. The arrest came after public criticisms over the alleged indecisiveness of the town’s leadership to crack down hard against members of the two most notorious gangs to date: Bloods and Crips. The lawmen seized two homemade .38 caliber revolvers plus ammunition from Raymund Sakkam and a kitchen knife Turn to page 18

challenge in two senses. We are witnessing, indeed, a challenge to this encyclical and a challenge of this encyclical. The challenge to “Humanae Vitae,” which immediately followed its publication and which still continues, comes from various points of view and above all from its purported biologistic and Augustinian approach that is said to be inherited from “Casti Connubii” (Dec. 31, 1930). The challenge of “Humanae Vitae,” instead, has been centered around its intrinsic normative principle as an ineluctable conclusion of the premises of “Gaudium et Spes” of the Second Vatican Council. Through this principle, which is always valid, it became a challenge because of its character when faced with the criteria of the majority of the famous ad hoc Commission, as well as the advances achieved and obtained at a scientific and technical level, specifically in the field of biogenetics. Through this doctrinal character, “Humanae Vitae” has also challenged the contradictions of artificial procreation. These two challenges — one passive and the other active — obviously call upon health workers in particular inasmuch as they are specifically ministers of human life. The challenge to “Humanae Vitae,” and this should be emphasized, relates to an equivocal reading of the text more than 40 years after its publication. This challenge to “Humanae Vitae” has provoked in turn the challenge of “Humanae Vitae,” namely a univocal, pertinent and correct reading of the text. These two challenges, which involve each other reciprocally, challenge health care workers. Thus the division of these challenges does not mean their separation; they intertwine and become unbound in the challenge to health care workers. Thus, entering into the heart of “Humanae Vitae,” I am of the view that we have come to its most demanding challenge for health care workers. This is because, in this challenge to the majority and to the challengers, after 40 years, “Humanae Vitae” teaches with categorical firmness the very much discussed principle of the two aspects of conjugal love — the unitive and procreative — which should not be

From page 5 Dauin interpreted Alanano’s appointment as a way of removing him from the local political landscape as he is reportedly “making too much noise and ripples” particularly on the affairs of the LGU. Teves promptly dismissed the notion and stressed that Alanano’s appointment is in consonance to the desire of the provincial government to improve its Coastal Resource Management, an area considered to be Alanano’s forte. “It was the request of Governor Perdices plus my personal faith in his capacity to initiate real pro-environment policies,” said Teves. “It was Alanano who started a successful and multi-awarded coastal resource management in Dauin, which made him a legend and we hope to use his passion and expertise at
From page 4 competitiveness notched two points better. Let’s understand the phenomenon better. The Philippine bonds (the first to be denominated in peso currency) was oversubscribed 13X and offered a reduced yield of 5% from the original 7% to the bond investors. Thirteen times oversubscribed means 13 other interested buyers had to be turned down because the RP bonds were already sold out. The phenomenon confirms the world view of belief in the stability of the peso currency, that world funds were looking RP’s way rather than the traditional money centers and the lower reward (yield) to the investors is seen as seen as more than compensated for by a perceived lower sovereign risk of the country. That’s absolutely great news. (Concluded next issue)
separated in the conjugal act. In addition, because on the basis of this intrinsic moral criterion it is the task specifically of health care workers to indicate the inconsistency of the criteria of the majority and their followers today. This challenge to “Humanae Vitae” also concerns all the policies involving assistance in replacing the conjugal act made possible by the advance of science and technology. It is no accident that Pope Paul VI expressly appealed to medical doctors and to health care personnel.

However, a faculty of the elementary department twitted Macias for resigning when the paramount concern of the university in promulgating the new rules is for the safety of their children. Under the new rules, parents of those enrolled in Grades 4, 5 and 6 will no longer be allowed to enter the campus during lunch time ostensibly to teach the pupils to become independent; only students belonging to legitimate organizations are allowed to stay inside the campus beyond dismissal time; parents are urged to collect their students on time to avoid traffic jam and parents and visitors are only allowed entry after securing permission from the office of the Principal.
provinces. Arnaiz, former governor of Negros Oriental who had dealt with insurgency during his incumbency, admits he has yet to hear the comprehensive and long-term plan of the new Aquino administration with regards to ending insurgency. Meanwhile, the military is also hopeful that President Aquino will extend the life of the Social Integration Program (SIP), which aims to assist former rebels who intend to live normal but productive lives under the republic. 302nd Brigade Commanding Officer Col. Manuel Ochotorena said that the SIP program has been very useful to the military in enticing rebels to rejoin the mainstream society. Under the SIP, a rebel-returnee will receive a P 20,000 instant financial assistance and could get more cash depending on the number of firearms and ammunitions that will be surrendered to the government. The Aquino administration has put the SIP under review but the military is hopeful that the SIP will be reinstated or better yet, strengthened. Underscoring his commitment to the local peace initiatives, Governor Agustin “Tuting” Perdices has ordered the release of P 200,000 for the 20 rebel-returnees as initial assistance while waiting for the Aquino administration to finish its review of the SIP.(By Dems Demecillo)

The same must be said of a number of the American teachers, who are likewise ex-missionaries.” He minced no words in saying: “Of the native teachers I fear a large proportion of them are appointed by local political influence, and the result is that very many of them are professed haters of the Catholic Church and use their influence – and a “maestro” here acquires much of it – to the damage of the faith of the children.” More of this letter preserved in the Library of Congress in Washington DC will come to light in a future article.

From page 10 port 800 notes. Farone was hospitalized at the Navy medical facility in Sangley Point, following a fall. That is on record. It is known that he contacted Marissa, Pestaño’s sister. He wanted “to tell what really happened to Phillip”. A long silence followed. The next time Farone called he was confined in V.Luna Military Hospital. His gangrenous foot was going to be amputated. Marissa and mother were turned away when they tried to vist Farone at V. Luna. “No longer here,” was the reason offered. Marissa learned later that Farone was brought to the Kidney Center. His leg had been amputated. Apparently, Farone was returned to V. Luna after the amputation. After two weeks, Marissa learned that Farone died. “Dead men tell no tales.” In their UN complaint, the Pestaño’s claim that Farone’s demise was “suspicious.” It should have been investigated. Again, the Philippines didn’t even comment on this case. Shouldn’t have this death been probed, if only to shield the good name of Navy and Armed Forces medical centers? “They were faceless, powerless enlisted men,” notes Counsel Enrique Angeles who shepherded the case through the UN.” Like the Villa-nuevas, Fidel’s wife had no resources to pursue the case. “They were like trees, felled in the forest.

Macalipay said that the new tack of the city against the illegal drugs trade would be two-pronged: the reduction of both supply and demand through increased illegal drugs awareness and
NORECO ready ... From page 1 This is the first time that the electric coop was subjected to a formal investigation or fact-finding probe, by a Congressional committee. A debate is being threshed out whether the committee on cooperatives, or the committee on good governance will conduct the probe which was set this week. But Noreco2 board of directors led by Lani Alviola, chairman, requested that in view of the proximity of date, and the need to complete its paper works for presentation, they asked that the probe be done next month. No reply has yet been received from Congress. Noreco 2 is to be probed on its multi million controversial loans form distant rural banks instead of government banks; alleged overpricing of the purchase of electric posts; the removal of two Dumaguete-based board members when this capital city was to have the biggest representation, among others. Noreco2 manager Engr. Ephraim TAclob and chairman Alviola said the coop can ably defend itself based on facts and legal points. Another basic issue is the “hybrid” status of Noreco2 in that, critics claim, that Noreco2 claims to side with the Coop Development Authority interests of ordinary cooperatives when convenient, but sides with the NEA motherhood and independence, depending on whichever side the coop plays a winning battle. The probe wants to clarify the status of similar electric coops not just Noreco2. One consumer asked: “Why does Noreco2 allow itself to be investigated by Congress, in a Dumaguete venue, yet, when they elect their board members, they hold elections in far-flung towns?”
Mayor halts ... smoking in public.
From page 2 Enardecido has prohibited all municipal employees to smoke in public buildings. He is expected to lead the launching of smoke-free Ayungon in the coming days. People complain of tricycle and easy ride drivers who smoke without regard to their passengers’ sentiment. Some elected public officials are also hooked with smoking thereby diminishing their moral ascendancy to ask their subordinates to curb the unhealthy habit. Tuanda and former Governor Jose “Petit” Baldado decided to quit a few years back due to health reasons and has been promoting healthy lifestyle for those who are willing to listen. Mayors who are not known to smoke are: Ernesto Reyes, Guihulngan; Rene Gaudiel, Bayawan; Neil Credo, Dauin; Kit Marc Adanza,
While they welcome the congressional inquiry of the Committee on Cooperatives Development of the House of Representatives, the management of the Negros Oriental Electric Cooperative 2 has asked Congress to postpone the scheduled investigation so they can amply respond to the questions. The House inquiry is slated this Friday at the provincial convention center but might be postponed next month if the Congress accedes to the management’s request. In a letter to Rep. Ping-ay, Chairman of the Committee on Cooperatives of the House of Representatives, Lennie Joy Alviola, the Chairperson of the NORECO 2 Board of Directors, wrote that the officials of the electric cooperative including General Manager Ephraim Taclob will attend the congressional inquiry to clear their names. Alviola asserts “they have nothing to hide and nothing to fear.” Also invited to attend is Atty. Fulgencio Vigare Jr., CDA Oversight Administrator for Electric Cooperatives Cooperative Development Authority, who appeared to have unilaterally postponed the scheduled elections of some members of the Board of Directors. Coop-Natcco Rep. Cresente Paez said the House will look into alleged “abuse of authority and patent irregularities committed or being committed by the management and several members of the Board of Directors of NORECO 2 in its administration and in the conduct of its business and operations.” Paez said eight members of the committee will be here along with the province’s two district representatives namely George Arnaiz (2 nd District) and Pryde Henry Teves (3rd).

Amlan Mayor Bentham Dela Cruz laments that the Committee on Health headed by Board Member Liland Estacion does not seem to prioritize the publication of the Implementing Rules and Regulations of the smokefree ordinance. The IRR would have provided the mayors a compelling reason and basis to implement the smoke-free ordinance, which strictly prohibits the selling of cigarettes to minors, smoking in public places, outdoor advertisements, etc. Dela Cruz stressed that while some mayors do not see the urgency of curbing cigarette smoking, they must realize that it should not be taken for granted. “Public officials must impress to the people that exposure to first and second hand smoke is detrimental to one’s health, the sooner they realize that the better,”

gies as better law enforcement, strengthening of the Small Town Lottery (STL) as alternative to jueteng, and adoption of measures to keep people away from the culture of gambling. He explained that the first strategy pertains to the intensified police operations against jueteng activities, the arrest of suspected gambling personnel, confiscation of bets and gambling paraphernalia, and filing of appropriate charges in court. “As early as July,he has directed then Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Director General Jesus Verzosa to conduct a nationwide campaign to stamp out jueteng, as well as validate reports that the operation of STL is being used as front for the illegal numbers game.” He is right: STL is the basis of jueteng winning numbers. So how can you stop it unless you stop STL? House can cite the officials summoned for contempt should they refuse to appear before the committee. Previous attempts by the City Council of Dumaguete to investigate alleged anomalies and excesses of the NORECO 2 management went unheeded. Also to be investigated is the unceremonious removal of BOD members Engr. Ricardo Maputi and retired police General Constantino Sayson, who are known to be the vocal “oppositionists” in the Board. Rep. Arnaiz scored the electric cooperative for their overstaying BOD members and their penchant of conducting their general assemblies away from the capital city. Paez and Arnaiz believe that it would be prudent for the NORECO 2 management to cooperate in the investigation to clear all doubts as to
the alleged anomalies in their financial transactions and the brusque removal of two BOD members. However, there is a move for the Committee on Cooperatives Development to relinquish the investigation to the Committee on Good Government and Public Accountability. In her September 10 letter to Ping-ay, Alviola said she would prefer that the congressional inquiry be moved to October 21, 2010 as they are still in the process of “securing vital documents and preparing their position paper on the subject of the investigation.” Paez said the results of the investigation will be used to strengthen the Cooperative Code of the Philippines, as well as for the possible prosecution of any NORECO 2 officials who may have committed unlawful acts.

God in our ... (Obar) From page 6
God’s eternal approval, no matter how ill gotten; and poverty as the wages of sin. No cure to our multifarious social, political and economic illnesses, not even the profundity of the proposed solutions of the left or the right, assuming there are, could ever be had or attained without the exponential multiplier of the FATHERHOOD OF A LOVING and FORGIVING GOD. And this, to my mind, has been the lacking component of our common struggles as a people and nation; then, now and in the future. Today therefore, as a fitting tribute to those who have
already paid, dearly, the cost of a DEMOCRACY and FREEDOM, we should jointly call or urge, short of rebuke, the churches, government institutions and the educational system to revisit their understanding of wealth and poverty. Redirect the minds of men from consumerism and commercialism of material wealth into the higher and loftier value of satisfaction of the human soul. Finally, our compatriots who have died for the sake of FREEDOM and DEMOCRACY will be happier in the loving embrace of our Great Creator if for one time we look upon ourselves and examine our hearts’ desires. “Rejoice in the name of the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart,” the scriptures says.

Lawyer-less court ... (From page 4) Claims for damages, as long as the amount claimed is P100,000 or less, can fall under the small claims proceedings. Even businesses or corporations who have unpaid credits or receivables of P100,000 or less can take advantage of the small claims proceedings in collecting their credits. If you have more questions on how to go about filing small claims (P100,000 or less), creditors/ litigants are advised to seek guidance from the clerks of court. Moreover, the media can help in disseminating this procedure, inviting judges in broadcast programs to explain the small claims procedures. Clerks of court can also be invited to explain in these court innovations on radio shows.

Saturday. This developed as Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria decided to appoint Cordova , as vice chairman of the city peace and order council, whose papers will be signed shortly. Cordova fits the job as anti crime czar, being a bimedalled combat officer, graduate from PMA and West Point, who chose politics and teaching as his lifetime career. Cordova, in a privilege speech before the City Council, denounced the PDEA local chief and said, “he deserves to be removed from his present assignment because it does not speak well of an officer and a gentleman. If we are quick to denounce a common criminal, the more we should denounce this PDEA official who should have set a good example of sobriety and prudence especially in the use of a firearm issued to him by the people thru the government.” For his side, Kintanar defended saying, that while celebrating his birthday at the beach, some people got into an argument prompting him to fire warning shots (for what?) in the air to stop the confusion. He said, he never intended to shoot anyone. But it sent many people covering for safety. Three people charged Kintanar for disturbing the peace, and were to file the same with the fiscal’s office.
