Tan dynasty in Samar: 3 wins, 3 lose Comelec proclaims City’s first lady mayor-elect

By RICKY J. BAUTISTA, SWE News & Features

CATBALOGAN CITY -The ambition of the Tan family to rule the entire province of Samar failed as three of their additional bets -- all neophytes -- lost and only the incumbents were able to regain their posts in Monday’s polls. The Tan family fielded three inexperienced candidates in a bid to further tighten their grip in Samar that has 481,278 registered voters and nearly a million population. In the recently concluded polls only Samar 2nd district Rep. Milagrosa “Mila” Tan got reelected along with her daughter Sharee Ann “She-Ann” Tan as governor of the province and son Stephen James “Jimboy” Tan as vice governor. The matriarch was challenged by lawyer Eunice Babalcon of the Liberal Party (LP), who belongs to a political family in Paranas town and Villareal Mayor Reynato Latorre of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA).

CALBAYOG CITY -- The proclamation of the elected candidates to occupy the remaining two seats for the local Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP) of this city hangs pending the decision of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) for a special poll in Higasaan village. Elections at Brgy. Higasaan, a small far-flung barangay located at Seven Hills Upper Happy Valley of this city, did not push through amid threats coming from alleged armed men. According to City Election Officer Lawyer Fidel Amacna, the greater body of its voters had been prevented by some village officials from exercising their rights. Barangay Higasaan has 218 registered voters. On Monday’s election,

3 election-related incidents recorded in Eastern Visayas TACLOBAN CITY -- This region has achieved its target of having peaceful elections amid three confirmed election-related cases as a result of the validation conducted by the committee that was created by the Police Regional Office 8 (PRO8) here to determine the status of incidents that transpired within the election period. Confirmed election-related incidents were from the provinces of Biliran, Eastern Samar and Northern Samar. The most prominent of the cases was the shooting of incumbent and re-elected mayor of Victoria town in Northern Samar Jose Ardales and his son Jorge by the supporters of his challenger Guillermo Jumamil on May 2. Assailants Albert Keneddy and Precillano Aliganza are now facing charges of two counts of frustrated murder filed by the Philippine National Police (PNP). Another ERI involved the clash of the supporters of candidates of Kawayan re-electionist mayor Rudy Espina and congressional candidate aspirant Glen Chong in Biliran province in May 11. The shooting incident that ensued caused the injury of Espina’s driver Norberto Nierras. Meantime, the PNP also considered as ERI the case of malicious mischief at Can-avid, Eastern Samar. The incident involved the forcible entry of polling centers by unidentified suspects two days before the May 13 polls. The padlock of backdoor of the polling center at Barangay 5 was damaged and the seal of the precinct count optical scan (PCOS) machine was broken; the PCOS battery was missing in Barangay 10; the container of the PCOS machine batter was destroyed in Barangay 4 while the back door of the center in Barangay Camantang was also forcibly opened. The PNP is still trying to identify the perpetrators so as to file appropriate cases. Nonetheless, PRO8 media relations officer, Insp. Romuel Nacar in quoting earlier statement of PRO8 director C/Supt. Elmer Soria said that the conduct of elections in the region was generally peaceful. In fact, there was no ERIs monitored during and after the Election Day. Soria, he said, cited that the security plan laid out by PRO8 was “more than adequate in ensuring secure and fair elections.” PRO8 has already recalled its 913-strong force contingent that were deployed to various provincial and police offices in the region Thursday last week. Nacar said that with their election duties now almost over the police force will continue with their police functions and anti-criminality operations, especially with security preparations in line with the opening of classes.

DILG chief to meet members of councils in Samar, Tacloban

TACLOBAN CITY -- Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Regional Director Pedro Noval Jr. will personally talk with newly elected members of the city council here and that of Samar province. Noval said these two councils were the most “controversial” as most of the members failed to attend their respective regular sessions, Noval said adding that this resulted to the non-passage of important measures like the annual budget of Samar. “I want to ensure a harmonious relationship this time between the executive and legislative branches of the two LGUs.So after their inauguration, I will visit them to personally talk with them on what should be done to ensure that the service of the local government will not be affected,” Noval said. Samar, according to the DILG-8 director, is his most concern considering that majority of the new members of its provincial board belongs to the Liberal Party. Its presiding officer, Vice Governor Stephen James Tan as well as Governor Sharee

Ann Tan, belong to the National People’s Coalition (NPC). Noval said that he would not like to see again what had happened in the past when majority members of the Samar provincial board had several collisions with governor which resulted to the non-passage of important measures.

His father, Leopoldo, was a former governor of Leyte and his mother Remedios is also former governor of the province and representative of the first district. Currently she is the incumbent municipal mayor of Palo and was re-elected again for her second term. “I would like to focus on economy of the province to compliment the projects that my brother did during his term,” said Petilla. He added that if he would focus on development and improving more the economy of the province, this would mean better relationship with its neighboring local government units that include Tacloban City.

DENR places 2 Samar caves under its jurisdiction C AT B A L O G A N CITY -- The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in Eastern Visayas classified two famous caves in Samar province in a bid to give stronger teeth to laws protecting the pristine caves having potentials of continuously bringing tourists to the region. The 12 interconnecting caves, called LangunGobingob Cave located in the town of Calbiga and the widely known Sohoton Cave in Basey have been classified by the DENR as Class II caves. The Langun-Gobingob Cave, dubbed as

the country’s biggest and largest cave system-measuring to around 2,968 hectares, had been regularly attracting foreign and local cavers. The Sohoton Cave, on the other hand, is the only premier “show cave” in the region that hauls young and old tourists every year. It is located inside the Sohoton Natural Bridge National Park (SNBN) protected area. The two caves are both inside the Samar Island Natural Park (SINP) being protected by the DENR.

hand, was challenged by Rosa Jessica “Aika” Uy (LP) the eldest child of the late mayor of Calbayog, Dr. Reynaldo S. Uy. Jimboy was being challenged as vice governor by the long-time mayor of Basey town, Wilfredo Estroninos (LP). The lady solon and the governor run under the Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC) banner, while Jimboy is with the Nacionalista Party. The eldest Tan used to be affiliated also with the Liberal. The three neophytes namely Angelie T. Tan (Independent) ran for Calbayog City mayor, Reynolds Michael T. Tan for Catbalogan City mayor, and Arnold V. Tan (NP) for congressman in the first district and they all lost. Incumbent Rep. Mel Senen Sarmiento (LP) garnering 78,425 votes stayed as congressman of Samar first district. He was proclaimed in absentia by the provincial board of canvassers (PBOC) Thursday night. Another LP candidate in Calbayog City, Mayor Ronald Aquino, retained his post and was proclaimed ahead of Sarmiento. The Tan family has been in power in Samar for more than a decade. The first to enter politics in Samar is Mila who was a substitute for her late husband Ricardo who ran for a provincial seat in 1998. The Tan family is mostly engaged in general merchandising and micro-finance lending, which made them well known in the province. After her board seat, Mila ran for governor (under former President Joseph Estrada’s Partido ng Masang Pilipino) in 2001 against Jose Roño, who was deputy prime minister during the Marcos regime. She won the tight race that happened to be the most talked political battle that time. She was able to finish three terms under the banner of the LP on her second and Kabalikat ng Malayang Pilipino on her third term. In 2007, Mila fielded her second daughter Sharee Ann to run for representative of the 2nd district. A political neophyte, Sheeann won and became the youngest lawmaker at the House of Representatives. After three years the mother and daughter tandem switched places while another family member joined the race. Jimboy was field for the vice-gobernatorial post and the three of them won their seats. This midterm elections, the lady solon fielded her brother-in-law and eldest daughter, Arnold and Angel for the congressional seat and Calbayog City mayoralty post but both lost to Sarmiento and Aquino respectively. Meantime, Michael lost to his sister-in-law Stephany Uy-Tan -- who is the wife of the incumbent and re-elected vice governor -- in the mayoral race. Step,the daughter of Coefredo Uy, a long-time mayor in Catbalogan, was proclaimed by the Commission on Elections city board of canvassers Thursday. She was proclaimed together with his father, who won a seat at the local Sanggunian and their entire winning slate. (Ricky Bautista)

Ragub said the classification was in line with the agency’s bid to protect, conserve and manage the resources within and outside the caves pursuant to Republic Act No. 9072 otherwise known as the National Caves and Cave Resources Management and Protection Act. For this the two caves shall be under the administrative jurisdiction of the DENR in coordination with the Department of Tourism (DOT), National Museum of the Philippines (NMP), National Historical Institute (NHI), the local government units of Calbiga and

New bio program launched

TO protect and nourish the country’s natural biodiversity, the Department of Tourism (DOT) recently partnered with ABS-CBN to launch what was dubbed as the “Green Initiative”. According to a statement from the DOT, this joint program will at the same time alleviate poverty and enrich the lives of people through livelihood projects. Under this program, strategies will be implemented toward improving the quality of life in the grassroots. Meanwhile, the DOT will facilitate the investment of tourism infrastructure and complementary facilities through convergence projects with the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH). The DOT has been a long-time partner of the ABS-CBN Foundation’s Bantay Kalikasan in promoting and positioning the

Basey, stakeholders from the academe, Non-Government Organizations, and other government agencies. However, the DENR may opt to delegate the management of the caves to the LGUs, or other interested parties consistent with the Public Private Partnership policy of the Aquino Administration,” Ragub said. Ragub defined Class II caves as caves that have hazardous conditions, contain sensitive geological, archaeological, cultural, historical and biological values or high quality eco-systems.

“Su ch c ave s are open to experienced spelunkers or caving enthusiasts in guided visits, although some portions may be closed seasonally or permanently for conservation purposes,” Ragub said. As this developed, it was learned that pursuant to RA 9072, a management plan is being prepared for each cave to consider all ecotourism, scientific, educational and economic activities, as well as monitoring and reclassification in the areas.

DENR distributes 500 free patent land titles to poor villages in Calbayog City CATBALOGAN CITY – In a bid to reduce poverty in the communities, the Aquino government handed out free patent land titles to around 500 landless residents of Calbayog City, an official of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) said Friday. Under the government’s Handog Titulo Program, free titling services were offered by agencies such as the DENR, the Calbayog City Register of Deeds and the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR). This is part of the government’s program of reducing poverty and increasing the productivity of people. The Free Patent Titles were given to residents living in 53 poorest villages in Calbayog City. DENR Regional Executive Director Manolito Ragub said the land title is a conclusive evidence of ownership, virtually insulating the holder from all other claims. “The (land) titles issued are indefeasible and no other title could be issued again over a land that has been covered by a title. If there is any, it would be invalid,” Ragub said assuring that a title holder could now enjoy the land with security. To date, the DENR office is now coordinating with the local government units for the establishment of satellite desks throughout the region that will focus mainly on handling land titling and processing. “We will soon deputize employees to help our land investigators receiving free patent applications from the communities,” Ragud said. Residents welcomed the distributions of land titles saying it is a long time dream of everyone especially those living in far-flung areas dreaming to have their own lot or lands. Recipients were reminded to keep their land titles safe. (Ricky Bautista)

EDITORIAL Proof or Evidence While some concerned politicians are quick to deny engagement in vote buying, a number of glaring proofs confirmed the said act right after the elections, and foremost of these is the flocking of so many people to different malls, food chains, shops, and many other places where they could spend their money in. The swelling of crowds in those places was indeed unusual for such ordinary days. Had it been say, a Christmas season particularly during December holidays, then it would not have been that surprising. But to think that it was a summer season when everything seems to be dry including the people’s pockets, the rush to shopping centers and all of such big crowds must have been surprising indeed. Of course, nothing could have explained that other than the fact that the people that time were indeed moneyed. And considering that it was an election time, then there is no other reason for that cash acquisition but the fact that candidates had given them that. There is no denying that they did the fact that ordinary people who seldom do shopping spree were doing exactly that, and in big numbers. The people themselves, by their very action, had divulged that vote buying phenomenon. Since they were Filipino electorates, they demonstrated their Filipinoness by immediately spending the money that came their way. Yes, when money lands into a Filipino’s hand, the first thing it will experience is to be spent on something instead of being invested. That’s the Filipino way. And that is what was shown right after they got some amounts from vote-buying candidates. They flocked to various places where they could buy things that they wanted to buy, equipped as they were with the money they had not sweated for. Sad to say, the excitement of buying those desired items was just for a moment. Now, the sad part is just about to begin.

Hints and Traces By Fr. Roy Cimagala When faith and moral issues enter politics

IT’S unfair, it crosses the line when people who are campaigning for anti-RH candidates, and reciprocally are campaigning against pro-RH candidates, are pigeonholed as fanatical, narrow-minded and bigoted for being just a one-issue group. This is not at all true. As far as I am concerned these constituents consider as well many other issues that go into selecting candidates they think would truly govern them properly. But it’s true that they give a certain priority to the RH issue, because while the other issues are important, the RH has a distinctive moment the others do not have. And that’s because the RH issue is not anymore a subject of opinion and preference. It belongs to the realm of faith and morals that define the very nature of our humanity. That’s why the Church officials, the bishops especially, when faced with faith and moral issues as they play out in the political arena, make statements of clarification and judgment. And the laity act on them. We cannot deny the fact that the world today is engulfed in a twister of confusion. All sorts of beliefs, ideologies, doctrines and philosophies are peddled in the open, using all kinds of means, legitimate and even the illegitimate. There are even those who call themselves Catholics but go against Catholic teaching and authorities, practically dividing, not only distinguishing, their individuality from their social nature, their personal life from their life as members of the Chuch. They say they follow their conscience, as if to say that their connection with God can transcend the need to be in step with the teachings of the Church and the other human institutions that God himself, through Christ in the Spirit, has established and maintained. They pound on the supposedly unbridgeable gap between what God says and what the Church says. Or they can claim that there are moments when the God-and-Church connection is ok, and other times when it is not. In the end, what they have is a selective, biased outlook.

We have to show them that it is not God whom they follow, but simply their own selves, their own ideas, their opinions and preferences. But we also have to clarify things with respect to nonbelievers. This will take a longer and more complicated process, but it can and should be done. One way or another, it can always be shown that everyone is in need of others, and eventually and, in fact, constantly, everyone needs God and the Church. All this should be done in the manner shown to us by Christ himself and followed by the saints. And that is by proclaiming the truth, in season and out of season, in charity. Always in charity, and never without it, otherwise, the truth would never be the truth! This is a principle that should always be applied even in the arena of politics. We have to disabuse ourselves from the idea that in political matters, we somehow can be excused from the ways of charity, because politics would necessarily involve us in contentious issues. We need to learn to resolve matters in charity. Even in our differences and conflicts, our victories and defeats, we need in live in charity. We have to be wary of our tendency to succumb to anger, hatred, resentment, revenge, lies, deception and the like. We have to intensify our efforts to keep the requirements of courtesy and civility, openness and transparency, magnanimity and mercy, tact, prudence, patience, etc. We have to respect each other’s opinions no matter how much we disagree with them, giving the benefit of the doubt to others, trying to understand why they think in a certain way, etc., even as we clarify the issues as actively as possible. We should not worry so much about what the outcome will be. As we are told in the Bible, nothing is new under the sun. God is always in control. We just have to make sure that we play our part the way God wants us to play. And we know that, as shown by Christ, we have to be willing to go all the way, even to death on the cross. Even in the worst of scenarios, the good will always triumph if we stick faithfully to God and his ways!

for the automated election system of the 13 May 2013 national and local elections are indeed the same Source Code compiled and encoded into the PCOS machines,’ Gordon said in the motion. “ `Thus, it is imperative for the Respondent to produce and make available to the Petitioners and their designated representatives a COMPLETE COMPILABLE COPY of the Source Code duly recorded on standard optical or similar commercially-available digital media. A ‘compilable copy’ of computer software is a digital copy of computer software that can be readily transformed, encoded, or `compiled’ into machine-readable binary code and electronically tested,’ he added. -oooREVIEW OF PCOS SOURCE CODE NECESSARY TO SEE IF TAMPERING DONE: “Gordon stressed that it is imperative for the Supreme Court to stop the Comelec or any other party from handling the PCOS machines and possibly tampering with the program installed in them since it would render futile a review and comparison of the source code. “ `A review of the source code would show any mismatch between the respective hash codes generated from the Source Code and those from the PCOS machines’ embedded software. It would show possible tampering and/or the unlawful adulteration of the Source Code prior to their loading into the PCOS machines used for the 13 May 2013 national and local elections,” Gordon said. “ `If the evidence represented by the software actually embedded into the PCOS machines are not preserved through the proper injunctive writs from this Honorable Tribunal, the Respondent may just remove the actual Source Code loaded into the PCOS machines and erase whatever anomaly that it or other unscrupulous individuals may have committed to corrupt the automated election system and subvert the true sovereign will of the people during the 13 May 2013 national and local elections,’ he added…” -oooREACTIONS?

This year the province has P184 million fund to be utilized for the concreting of a section of the Mondragon-Silvino Lubos road network worth P100 million and the construction and opening of around 12-kilometer stretch of the Silvino-Lupos-Lope de Vega road at Lope de Vega town amounting to P84 million. “This will surely give road access to mountainous barangays of the said municipalities,” he said. The recently concluded elections showed the defeat of incumbent governor Paul Daza to challenger Jun Ong as well as his running mate Antonio Lucero by Ong’s ally Gary Lavin. Noval, in their agency monitoring report, revealed that around 80 percent of the winners in Northern Samar belong to the opposition camp.

Keppel Philippine Marine Incorporated has a shipyard in Batangas and Subic that is into shipbuilding, ship repair and conversion. “But there is a specific competencies that we need to meet; very specific for their company which they are willing to help us to attain, including training our trainers,” said Omega adding that among the skilled workers they need are wielders and pipefitters. Omega added that they also asked the official of Keppel to help them by providing additional input to the present curriculum of TESDA to ensure that graduates will reach the level of knowledge and skills that the company needs. Omega also revealed that in the recent graduation of KEITECH, more than 90 of their 139 students were automatically hired by Keppel to work for their company. KEITECH is a technical-vocational school established by Energy Development Corporation and the local government of Kananga to equip high school graduates who do not have the means to pursue college education with the skills that will prepare them for both local and foreign employments. The TESDA official added that the official of Keppel will be coming back again to discuss with them the plan and also to look for additional workers as the company is really in need of workers for their two shipyards.

One of the fake accounts posted a comment Wednesday last week on the “downfall of the Daza political family in Samar as an indication that much has changed in the past years in the perspective of the Filipino electorate.” The account also named Villafuertes in Camarines Sur, Garcias of Cebu, Gonzales of Iloilo, Barbers of Surigao del Norte and Cojuangcos in Negros Occidental hinting of the same fate as the Dazas. Another account commented on a report that came out in a national paper on May 8 about the “alleged assassination attempt” against a mayoralty bet in Baybay, Leyte. The account stated that the incident was a “desperate attempt” by one political family to “eliminate political opponent.” (Perla G. Lena/PNA)

COUNCIL from page 2 ... “If they continue to block the programs of the government, what kind of development the people would get?” Noval said. He added that he would do the same thing with the members of the Tacloban legislative council as six of its elected members belong to the opposition. The city council has 10 regular members with two ex-officio members, the federation presidents of the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) and barangay chairpersons, respectively. Still, Noval expressed high hopes that the present set of city council members would have a better relationship with the executive branch. Its presiding officer, newly elected Vice Mayor Jerry Yaokasin, ran as an independent. Mayor Alfred Romualdez, in an interview, said he does not mind if the opposition would dominate the council as long as they would all work for the betterment of the people of Tacloban.

Carlos Celdran to Filipinos: Keep calm and ignore Dan Brown Next week’s “Brigada Eskwela” is an annual school maintenance program in preparation for the opening of classes this June. Edgar Y. Tenasas, City DepEd Division Information Officer and Coordinator of the Adopt-A-School Program said the Brigada Eskwela will be held simultaneously in 54 city public schools composed of 14 secondary and 40 elementary schools this coming May 20- 25, 2013. Tenasas said the program also known as the National Schools Maintenance Week is held yearly with help from education stakeholders who contribute their time, effort, and resources to ensure that public school facilities are ready for the coming school opening. A modern version of the “Bayanihan”, community officials, parents, students, and other organizations prepare the schools by doing minor repairs and clean-up activities. The city government through Mayor Alfred S. Romualdez earlier released checks worth P50,000 to each public school during the Brigada kick-off held last March 27. The City DepEd recognized the saying that the financial assistance has been helpful in defraying costs during the program’s weeklong implementation in the various schools. Meantime, while the activity is ongoing, DepEd personnel will be monitoring the schools for eligibility to the “Best Brigada Implementer 2013 Award” of DepEd National Office. Started in 2003, the program is under the “Adopt-A-School Program” of DepEd.

Carlos Celdran

Dan Brown

AMID brewing uproar over Dan Brown’s “gates of hell” reference to Manila, cultural activist Carlos Celdran urged Filipinos to remain calm and get their act together. The excerpt about the Philippine capital in the American writer’s new novel Inferno is only an exaggeration in fiction and is not so bad, the popular tour guide said, but he knows why Filipinos are infuriated. “Considering the pagka-pikon ng mga Pinoy, I can’t blame them also because the reason why they’re so pikon is because they’re helpless in changing our city,” Celdran said. “Ang gulo talaga ng Maynila. Kung may confidence ang mga Pilipino or Manilenos in changing our city, I don’t think we’d be so pikon,” he said. American forces bombed the city in 1945, leaving the Philippine capital the most devastated place after Warsaw during the second World War. (From the wires)
