Residents of island towns stranded in Calbayog Port By RICKY J. BAUTISTA, SWE News & Features

CALBAYOG CITY -- Hundreds of passengers were stranded in Calbayog port Sunday evening due to non-availability of pump boats that would transport them from Calbayog City to the islands towns of Sto. Nino, Almagro and Tagapul-an, all of Samar.

As of 9:00 o’clock Sunday evening, passengers from Manila who rushed home for the elections were seen sleeping in their bags while some of them taking dinner at the city’s wharf, just in front of the Calbayog City Police Station. Nica Autida, 25, a resident of Almagro,said there were other stranded residents Sunday morning but were already fetched by boats courtesy of some politicians in the municipality. She said that many stranded islanders in Calbayog port were still hoping that they can go home because some candidates promised to sponsor boats that will ferry them from the port to their respective homes. Day time travel by boat is one and half. Fare is P120 each. “We are thankful that there are talks about them (candidates) offering a free boat ride, at least we are now worry-free to stay in the streets, without blankets and food,” Autida said. One passenger identified only as “Precilla,” came home from Manila, along with her husband and four children aged 3-7, lamented their situation at the port of Calbayog. She revealed that being stranded in Calbayog port is their

CATBALOGAN CITY -- Troops of the 8th Infantry Division (8ID) of the Philippine Army (PA) have been reminded to remain non-partisan as they perform their duties as deputized by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) in pursuit for a secured and fair 2013 elections. M/Gen Gerardo T. Layug, commanding general of the 8ID, made the reminder over the weekend simultaneous with the deployment of troops that will provide security in polling centers in Catbalogan City. “Do your best but you also must bear in mind considering this deployment as tactical operations because it will not only be the PCOS machines that will be the target or the BEIs (Board of Election Inspectors) but you yourselves will be target of our enemies. You are not going to a picnic, you are going on tactical operations,” he likewise told the troops. Layug said that the whole of the division is deployed for election duties including those that perform guard duties. Likewise, they have received augmentation troops from their national headquarters and are now deployed in

CATBALOGAN CITY -- The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) has utilized its air capability in bringing to far-flung areas of Samar provinces the much needed replacement for Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS) machines that were found to be non-functional.

Comelec strengthens security in areas with presumed ERIs TACLOBAN CITY -- Security has been strengthened in areas where there are presumed cases of election-related incidents (ERIs), according to Atty. Veronico Petalcorin, acting regional director of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) in Eastern Visayas. Petalcorin has ordered the Philippine National Police (PNP) for an augmentation of personnel to Biliran, Eastern Samar and Northern Samar provinces, particularly in areas where there are cases of ERIs Sunday morning. The move is necessary to prevent the escalation of incidents due to possible retaliation from affected camps, he said. To date, four casualties due to suspected ERIs have been recorded in Samar provinces. Meantime, C/Supt. Elmer R. Soria, director of the Police Regional Office 8 (PRO8), is urging the public support in ensuring the success of today’s electoral process. Soria, likewise, appealed to voters to honor the heroism displayed by POI Algerico Afable as they troop to various precincts to cast their votes. Afable was assigned to guard Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS) machines deposited at the Calingatngan Elementary School in Brgy. Calingatngan, Borongan when shot by four unidentified gunmen around 4 a.m. Saturday. Additional personnel have been deployed to the area to provide security. Regionwide, the PNP has already deployed around 1,085 personnel to various provinces of the region. The Philippine Army (PA) also deployed troops to help secure polling centers, specifically in areas affected by insurgents. To date, three persons have been killed while six others were wounded in separate suspected ERIs in three provinces of Eastern Visayas. Eastern Samar has two recorded casualties and three injuries; Northern Samar has one casualty and two injuries while Biliran and Leyte has one injured victim each. Petalcorin said these incidents are already presumed ERIs but are just subject to verification by the PNP. On Sunday morning, two shooting incidents from Catarman, Northern Samar and Hilongos Leyte were reported to the Regional Election Monitoring Action Center (REMAC) of the Police Regional Office 8 (PRO 8). Arturo Gallano, former kagawad of Brgy. Libho, Catarman, Northern Samar and a supporter of undisclosed candidate sustained multiple gunshot wounds when shot by unidentified suspects around 10 a.m. Sunday. (PNA)

Comelec 8 now 99.98% ready for Mondays polls TACLOBAN CITY -- The Commission on Elections (Comelec) here in Eastern Visayas is now 99.98 percent ready to accommodate the 2, 576, 250 registered voters of the region who are expected to troop to 3, 773 polling centers on Monday for the 2013 midterm elections.

Comelec 8 acting regional director, Atty. Veronico Petalcorin stated that they expect to be 100 percent ready by midnight as soon as the two compact flash (CF) cards arrived at their destinations in Catbalogan, Samar and Silvino Lobos, Northern Samar. These two, he said, are currently on transit. Further, he revealed that replacement for the Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS) that were found defective have already arrived. However, if they could not be delivered to their respective polling centers in time for the voting, then contingency PCOS will have to be utilized. “We are not worried because we have one contingency PCOS for every city and municipality,” he assured.

The Comelec here has earlier requested for the replacement of 44 PCOS machines after due to some defects after the simultaneous regionwide final testing and sealing (FTS) on Monday. As of Friday afternoon, the poll body reported that four of the eight non-working PCOS in Samar have already been functional, reducing the non-working PCOS machines down to 40. “On the Election Day, with or without PCOS (machines) election will proceed,” he stressed.

DepEd 8 ready to monitor Unopposed candidates need at least a teachers serving as BEIs vote to win -- Comelec TACLOBAN CITY -- The Department of Education (DepEd) in Eastern Visayas has organized an election task force that will monitor teachers who will be serving as Board of Election Inspectors (BEIs) in various voting and canvassing centers this May polls. Dr. Rebecca L. Ragrag, officer-in-charge of the DepEd

assistant regional office, likewise the agency’s information officer, said that the task force chaired by regional director Dr. Luisa B. Yu will be receiving calls and reports coming from their field offices. The task force will operate starting afternoon of May 12 until May 14. Ragrag said that the task force may address concerns of their teachers who are working at the field depending on the gravity of their issues. Nonetheless, they are also closely coordinating with their central office such that concerns that could not be addressed at the regional level will be elevated to the head office. Teachers usually serve as chair and first member of the three-member BEI. In E aster n Vis ayas, teachers will be deployed to 5,135 precincts to facilitate the casting of votes of some 2,756,250 registered voters.

TACLOBAN CITY -- Candidates running unopposed in the May 2013 midterm elections should not be too confident of their victory, according to an official of the Commission on Elections (Comelec). Comelec 8 acting regional director Veronico Petalcorin said candidates running without rivals cannot be declared winners unless someone actually votes for them. “Even if they are unopposed, Comelec still needs to have a record of votes for these unopposed candidates before proclaiming them as winners,” Petalcorin said. “They (unchallenged candidates) must remind their supporters to vote for them on May 13,” Petalcorin added. In the automated elections, the Comelec would have to wait for data from one precinct to be transmitted before it could proclaim an unchallenged candidate as winner. “But such candidate needs only one vote to win,” Petalcorin said. In Eastern Visayas, among those unchallenged candidates include Dominic Petilla for Leyte governor and re-electionist Rep. Ferdinand Martin Romualdez in Leyte’s first congressional district. For mayor, unopposed candidates were re-electionists Leonardo Javier of Javier, Leyte; Ernesto Martillo of Pastrana, Leyte; and Septemio Santiago of Maslog, Eastern Samar. For vice-mayor, unopposed aspirants were Oscar Amigo of Jipapad, Eastern Samar; Alfredo Lagumaby of Hinundayan, Southern Leyte; William Yu of San Ricardo, Southern Leyte, George Arevalo of Palompon, Leyte and Heracleo Santiago of Maslog, Eastern Samar.

Special voting place for PWDs

A BEI inspect election documents

The Commission on Elections (Comelec) will provide a special voting place for persons with disabilities (PWDs) and elderly as they cast their votes this May 13 polls. Comelec 8 acting regional director, lawyer Victorino Petalcorin, said that “they have already identified senior citizens, PWDs” in various centers in the region. He added that a special board of election inspectors (SBEI) will be designated to facilitate the casting of votes but there will be no separate Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS) machine for them. Their official ballots will be brought back to the precinct where they have been registered, he added.

Tacloban sets up public assistance centers in 37 poll centers TACLOBAN CITY – The city government here has established public assistance centers in 37 polling centers to provide help to the voting public on Monday. The initiative dubbed as “Oplan S.A.F.E.” (Secure And Fair Elections) will be operational until Election Day, May 13. The project will have the city government working closely with the Philippine National Police (PNP), the 78th Infantry Battalion of the Philippine Army (PA), the Department of Education (DepEd) and other stakeholders to ensure the orderly conduct of elections on Monday. City Administrator, Atty. Tecson John Lim said the centers are manned by emergency rescue workers who will be conveniently stationed outside the voting centers and will provide emergency and rescue services, as well as free water to the public who will troop to the different polling places. Its communication and command center will be located at the city hall where members of the PNP and the Army will be on standby duty on a 24-hour shifting schedule. Vehicle traffic in the main thoroughfares of the City, especially those areas near the polling centers will be supervised by the Traffic Operations Management, Enforcement and Control Office (TOMECO). On Election Day, volunteer groups like the Red Cross, DELTA Volunteers and the Tacloban Chamber will be stationed in different tactical points of the city up to the northern barangays to provide emergency and rescue services. Parrying talks that the assistance centers will be used for partisan activities, the city administrator clarified that it will be impartial and will be working with all government agencies concerned.

ELEKSYON 2013 93 generators sets available to far-flung areas in E. Visayas CATBALOGAN CITY – A total of 93 generator sets have been made available by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) here to be utilized in poll centers that are situated in far-flung areas this Monday. The provision of generator set is one of the contingency measures identified by the poll body in case there would be problems on power supply while the election process is going on. It was learned that the board of election inspectors (BEIs) assigned in remote barangays were themselves the ones who requested for the said equipment. The 93 gensets will be provided to Southern Leyte with 18; Eastern Samar with 68 and seven for Biliran province. Earlier the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) already expressed that there is a sufficient power supply that will be made available to power distribution utilities come Election Day. Also their regional task force based in Cebu is now on alert and is working 24 hours to monitor the situations of the provincial command centers so that they could provide the appropriate responses to any power transmission issues that would arise. M/Gen Gerardu Layug, commanding general of the 8th Infantry Division (8ID) assured that their troops will be securing vital installation, including power lines, to ensure the smooth and orderly conduct of elections tomorrow.

second “sacrifice” for the election 2013. A day earlier, they were also stranded at Matnog port in Sorsogon, on their way home. It was learned that thousands of passengers bound for Samar and Leyte were stranded at the Allen Ferry Terminal, adjacent to Matnog port because of the repair works on the damaged roll-on roll-off ramp that would take another week. The Office of the Civil Defense (OCD) said the number of stranded passengers at the Matnog port has risen from the 8,000 recorded on Saturday. As of noon Sunday, the total number of stranded passengers was placed at 12,455 with 115 buses, 309 trucks, 90 light vehicles, it was learned. Reports said a long line up of passenger buses, trucks and light vehicles occupies the six-kilometer stretch of the national road and the diversion road in Matnog town. Majority of the stranded passengers, most of whom were going to their hometowns in Leyte and Samar to cast their votes, were on board buses that came from Metro Manila and other parts of Luzon and were supposed to be loaded into waiting RORO vessels for land-sea trips that would end up in the Visayas and Mindanao. Meanwhile, authorities said family food packs were already provided by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) while the Department of Health (DOH) has been advised to monitor the health situation of the stranded passengers at said ports.

Layug said that separate troops were earlier deployed to do clearing operations have already “figured in several encounters and arrests.” He particularly commended the 87th IB which, he said “figured prominently in these clearing operations.” Meanwhile, S/Supt. Eusebio Mejos, director of the Samar Police Provincial Office (SPPO) lauded the manner of deployment of the AFP because it is being done by teams. He said that with the scheme more areas will be secured and there is intensified visibility. He likewise reminded the Army troops that any action that they would take in case of problems that may arise at the voting center should be upon consultation with the BEIs. “We are non-partisan,” he emphasized. “We are expecting that as AFP, the guardian of the people, you will serve without bias,” Jesus L.

Fire caught Abuyog penal colony; 1 hurt THE regional arson investigators are now looking for the cause of the fire that hit a penal colony in Leyte town late Thursday dawn. Senior Fire Officer 1 Arnold Tesado, arson investigation officer on case said at least 6 prison buildings were burned down during the fire which is believed to be started through a short circuit from one of its prison cell. Reports said only one of the more than 1000 inmates at the Leyte Regional Prison in Abuyog town got injured. The lone fatality was said to be weak and sleeping inside his cell when the fire hit his building. Other inmates were outside said Tesado. “If they were inside, many could have been trapped and killed,” Tesado added. The damage was placed at more than P1 million by the fire investigators.

AFP from page 1 ... tered about 15 armed men believed to be members of the New People’s Army at the vicinity of Barangay Nawi, Paranas town, Samar last Friday. Lt. Colonel Cerilo Balaoro Jr., commanding officer of the 87th Infantry Battalion said his men, while passing said village and transporting election materials, chanced upon a group of armed men reportedly extorting money and campaigning in favour of the NPA-backed candidates and left-leaning party-list groups in said village. The government forces, after few minutes of gunfights, were able to recover one caliber .45 pistol, one caliber .38 revolver, three (3) magazines and ammunitions for M16 rifle, one blasting cap for IED, NPA flag and subversive documents, seven combat packs, assorted medicines and personal belongings, among others. No one was reported dead in both sides, as the insurgents managed to flee to different directions. Captain Amado Gutierrez, chief of the 8th Infantry Division Public Affairs Office, said the encounter of 87IB with the NPAs happened two days after the arrest of NPA leader Renato Abadiano aka Tiboy, who was arrested by combined elements of 87IB and police in Brgy Dolores, San Sebastian. Abadiano was waiting for the permit-to-campaign and permit-to-win fees and other extorted items from political candidates when he was arrested. Seized from him was a caliber .45 pistol, improvised explosive devices, blasting caps and subversive documents. Major General Gerardo Layug, commanding general of the 8th ID based in Catbalogan City said: “The security efforts of government troops are consistent with the mandate by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to secure the forthcoming national and local elections and prevent armed groups from terrorizing the people especially the voters just to derail and sabotage the peaceful and orderly conduct of the elections.” “The ongoing security operations will continue even after the elections in order to promote and achieve a peaceful and secured environment conducive to economic development in Samar Provinces which all Samaranons aspire,” Layug added in a press statement.

4 million OSY targeted for community reintegration THE National Youth Commission (NYC), together with the Deparment of Education (DepEd) launched on Friday, an ambitious project aimed at listing and profiling all Out-of-School Youths (OSYs) throughout the country for direct servicing by government and private organizations. Dubbed ABOT-ALAM, the program is a nationwide Barangay Targeting and Profiling System for all OSYs, aged 15 to 30 years old. It aims to create a comprehensive database of OSYs in the country and to ensure that all OSYs are reintegrated to their communities through programs and services of the DepEd, TESDA, DOLE, DSWD, and other partner agencies. “Nais nating ibahagi sa 3-4 milyong kabataang OSYs sa buong Pilipinas ang biyaya ng kaalaman sa pamamagitan ng Abot-Alam Program. Kaya inumpisahan na ng mga iba’t-ibang barangay ang pagpapalista ng mga OSYs,” NYC Chair Leon Flores said during the Program’s launch at Barangay Pinyahan in Quezon City. For his part, DepEd Secretary Armin Luistro said that “Abot Alam’s goal is to consolidate efforts among different sectors to equip our OSYs with the needed knowledge and skills that will enable them to go back to schoool, get employed or go into business. We are harnessing the support of every member of the community to help us in putting together a database of our out of school youth and in implementing programs and projects that will address their needs.” The first phase of the program is the Out-of-School Youth Barangay Targeting System (OSY-BTS) which seeks to identify and capture information on OSYs at the barangay level. While the second phase is the Community Reintegration Program (CoRPs) which aims to reintegrate the listed OSYs back into the education system whether through formal or alternative modalities, including TESDA courses. “Marami tayong modalities kung paano matutulungan ang isang OSY, pwedeng sa DepEd Alternative Learning System, TechVoc Education naman sa TESDA, at pwede ring bumalik sa pormal na pag-aaral. Ang mahalaga ngayon ay malaman natin kung nasaan ang mga OSYs sa buong bansa, mahalaga na maipalista natin sila sa AbotAlam program. Sa ABOT-ALAM walang maiiwan na OSY, lahat ay kasali, lahat ay dapat mabigyan ng serbisyo sa pamamagitan ng Public at Private Partnerships,” adds Chairman Flores. ABOT-ALAM was simultaneously launched in the cities of Cagayan De Oro, Baguio, Cebu, and Davao. (PR)

Church: Vote-buying rampant

THE Catholic Church expressed disappointment on rampant vote buying practice in Eastern Visayas that occurred days ahead of Monday’s election. Fr. Amadeo Alvero, spokesman of the Archdiocese of Palo said that we could expect that corruption will continue to tint local governance in the next three years since candidates have to seek return of all their election expense. “I urge candidates to stop it. They have to respect the votes of the electorate by not wooing voters with money. Be honorable by not resorting to vote buying,” Alvero said in a mobile phone interview. Alvero said that voters have already received money; they still have to exercise their freedom by choosing the right candidate. Candidates have been reportedly distributing money since last week. The amount ranges from P20 to thousands per voters. Buying rate varies on the elective position, number of candidates vying for the position, voting population, candidate’s chance to win, and perceived voter’s preference. The priest was saddened knowing that it’s not only the candidates that are seeking to buy votes but voters are offering to sell their votes as well. The Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) said that vote buying at the local level is rampant but hard to trace and prosecute.

EDITORIAL Clean up the Mess Candidates normally hire people during the campaign period who could post their campaign materials within public view. Candidates cannot do this by themselves. Besides being enormous, the task requires numerous personnel to effectively handle the job. These workers then spread the fliers, posters, streamers, etc., in hopes of inviting attention to the candidacy of their bosses. Places that are strategic for being frequented by people become their priority. In fact, they spread these stuffs even in places that are not allowed by the Comelec. But the hiring of these workers is just limited to the distribution and spread of campaign materials. Come the time to backlash those posters that have been put up, these workers no longer roam around to retrieve these things and all that are still glued to the walls, electric posts, tree trunks, and more. It’s not apparently part of their job to do so. They were not paid for it. As is the case every time there is an election, trash made of campaign materials accumulates. They litter everywhere as disgusting eyesores. These people are only good at littering their garbage, never taking responsibility in cleaning up their mess. It’s understandable if non-winning candidates will utterly abandon this responsibility because they are still nurturing their aching hearts. But for winning bets to equally turn their backs on their trash is irresponsible. Candidates should require their workers to also collect their garbage, whether they win or lose. If they won’t attend to this, they will continue to create a bad impression among the people they claim to serve.

Hints and Traces By Fr. Roy Cimagala Adaptive, flexible but firm, consistent A COMBINATION to die for! We just have to work it out. There’s always hope, and chances to attain this goal as long as we are also willing to take what it requires. And for this, there can be nothing more needed than to be vitally united with Christ. For Christ is the epitome of how it is to be adaptive and flexible, while at the same time, firm and consistent. His adaptability and flexibility is shown in infinite ways. He, being God, emptied himself to become man. And that selfemptying went all the way as to die on the cross for all the sins of men. Before his death, he allowed himself to be buffeted, spat upon, crowned with thorns, mocked, scourged, pierced. Before his passion, he, being pure love and goodness, allowed himself to be misunderstood and hated. He put himself completely at the hands of men, God submitting to man, the Creator left at the mercy of his creature. I call this the extreme of adaptability and flexibility. When he went around preaching, he used parables and other literary devices, cultural and social norms of the time, to make himself understood. Sure, he performed miracles, and but these were made to support all the human means he used to reach out to everyone. Miracles came as subsidiary means. He was open to all, mixed with everyone, rich or poor, healthy or sick, saintly or sinful. Even those he castigated for their hard-headedness and self-righteousness, he treated with due respect. But in all these forms of adaptability, flexibility and versatility, he was never lost or confused. He did not stray from his aim and focus. To top it all, he managed to use all situations and circumstances to do what he was supposed to do. Even that casual meeting with the Samaritan woman at the well, he took advantage to make a conversion. The two distraught disciples on the way to Emmaus after Christ’s resurrection became objects of a very exquisite revelation.

Can Aquino gov’t help OFWs in Taiwan? LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock…” (Jesus Christ, our God and Savior, in Matthew 7:24-25, the Holy Bible). -oooCAN AQUINO GOV’T HELP OFWs IN TAIWAN? Critics are raising a howl over the announcement of Press Undersecretary Abigail Valte that overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in Taiwan should “limit their activities and stay in the homes of their employers to avoid attacks by Taiwanese citizens”, saying something more concrete should be done by the Aquino government to protect the lives of OFWs, instead of merely asking them to stay indoors. But then, is there really something we can do about this? The clear answer is, no, we cannot really do anything about this kind of a fate among our countrymen, who are being called as the new heroes of the Republic because without their dollars our economy would have already sunk deeper, simply because we have no control over the places abroad where they are working. If the truth be told, the only concrete action that we can do is to pray to God for their safety, and trust that our prayers will be acceptable and favorably acted upon by God. But, really now, can our prayers be effective and powerful enough to compel the hand of God to protect our OFWs in Taiwan and, for that matter, everywhere else in the world where turmoil reigns and instability is the rule of the game? -oooOFWs LEFT TO THEMSELVES IN TIMES OF TROUBLE: In addressing this question, it is important that we realize right away that for many OFWs, working in foreign soils is the only option for them, if they wish to make both ends for their families and to enable their spouses and their children to live more decent lives. Consequently, being an OFW, and going abroad, are both givens that we cannot just wish away.

HINTS from page 5 ... All these are indeed impressive, and can, as their downside on us, cast doubt as to whether we can also maintain such qualities, such combination. But, of course, if we have faith, we can always say we can, “possumus,” even if we don’t know yet how it is going to happen. The crucial thing is faith, faith that is strong and expressed in deeds and not simply confined in verbal professions, sentimental feelings, intellectual exercises. It has to be a faith expressed in deeds, and taken to the streets and to the concrete, flesh-and-blood situations of all men and women in all variety of their conditions. We have to be wary of our tendency to become armchair experts. We have to go out and be willing to get dirty with the things of the world without compromising the spirit of God inside our soul. This is the challenge. Yes, while it’s true that each one of us will always have an area of specialization, we should neither forget that we need to learn how to work in tandem to be able to reach everyone. These thoughts came to mind as I participated recently in a discussion about how to bring in this soon-to-be concluded Year of Faith the wealth of the Catechism of the Church to all, especially the young and those who are still far from Church life. It’s a pity indeed if all that richness of the Catechism would just go to waste, like pearls cast before swine. But how do we make that wealth reach all men? I suppose the question is like the economic or political question of how can we have equal distribution of wealth in our society? We just have to continue hoping and praying and working, wracking our brains real hard, doing some studies and consultations, not afraid to go into trial-and-error mode. The important thing is to do something, and not just to remain idle, baffled, confused and lost. It’s said that many Filipinos who are pious and with a lot of devotions often are low and shallow in doctrine. There are also a few who seem to have a lot of doctrine but are rather lacking in piety and devotion. The ideal, of course, as one saint said, is to have the piety of little children while having the doctrine of the theologian. Nowadays, there are those, especially among the youth, who have neither piety nor theology, neither devotion nor doctrine. We need to reach out to them. This is where adaptability and versatility, firmness and consistency are most needed.

We must also realize that, when OFWs go abroad, our government loses control over what happens to them, especially in their work places, simply because OFWs become subject to the rules and regulations---no matter how primitive or barbaric these rules and regulations may appear to be---of the countries where their work places are located. Significantly, too, in responding to emergencies confronting OFWs, the capacity to help of our country and our government is very limited by many considerations, leaving many of our countrymen to the mercy alone of God in trying times, and in highly dangerous situations. -oooPRAYERS FOR OFWs IN TAIWAN AND ELSEWHERE: Consequently, it is only through God’s deliverance that OFWs can be saved. But, as we have already raised here, how can we make our prayers truly effective and powerful for distressed OFWs? Perhaps, it would help to remember that sending our sons and daughters abroad where they are bound to suffer is one of the curses which the Bible lists as being given by God to a people who no longer listen to Him, and who no longer obey Him (see Deuteronomy 28:15, 32). If sending OFWs abroad is a curse of God for those who no longer listen to Him and who no longer obey Him, then, their families and relatives, and the OFWs themselves, should aspire to remove that curse, according to what the Bible prescribes. What is the Bible’s direction for removing this curse? It is clear and simple: we should listen to Him (which means, we should read His Bible), and obey Him (which means we should obey His commands in the Bible). If we do these two things--listen to and obey God---the curse will be removed, and God’s blessings, guidance and protection will come upon us and our families. Want to try it? It works. -oooREACTIONS? Please call me at 0917 984 24 68, 0918 574 0193 0922 833 43 96.

From May 10-17 he said that the task force will operate 24-hours and their people at the regional command center based in Cebu will be on alert. “NGCP has deferred its maintenance activities one week before and one week after the election to make the transmission assets available for power delivery,” he revealed. Command centers will also be established in various places to include Samar and Leyte in Eastern Visayas where a live video conference will be held to monitor their situations during the elections. The country’s transmission network is also constantly communicating with various support groups to include the Commission on Elections (Comelec), power distribution utilities, Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), he added. In areas where there are insurgents he said that they are closely coordinating with the AFP for the provision of security to their vital installations. Meanwhile, he said that various power distribution utilities are also armed with their respective contingency measures. This is to address possible power problem that are already beyond the control of the NGCP such as the distribution lines involving low voltage areas. Currently, Visayas he said has an excess of around 200-300 megawatts readily available for distribution.

Gov’t needs to work harder to meet ‘12 spending goal

MANILA -- The government was able to surpass its revenue target for the first quarter of 2013 but it has to work harder to meet its expenditure goal for the year as spending is already below-target in the first three months.

Department of Finance (DOF) data show the government spent P430.80 billion from January to March this year, lower by about P1.97 billion than the P452.7 billion program. For the whole year, its expenditure program is P1.98 trillion. Of the total, the second quarter target is P493 billion while it is P494.02 billion for the third quarter and P544.17 billion for the last quarter. Last year, the government spent P1.78 billion for its projects and programs, nearly P62 billion short of the P1.84 trillion budgeted for this purpose. It was lower-than-programmed partly due to drop in interest payments on account of continued drop in interest rates in the country as well as overseas. The 2012 spending , however, is 14.1 percent higher than the P1.56 billion spent in 2011. The government has been aggressively pursuing to increase spending to ensure that necessary programs are put in place to sustain expansion of the domestic economy. Meanwhile, the government has set a P1.75 trillion revenue program for this year, higher than the P1.56 trillion goal for 2012. Revenues in the first quarter this year totalled to P364.33 billion, 0.9 percent higher than yearago’s P361 billion but lower than the P378.82 billion program. For the second to fourth quarters, the goals are P482.22 billion, P434.22 billion and P450.6 billion, respectively.

AFP: No need to put up alert on polls MANILA -- The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) on Tuesday said there is no need for the military to heighten its alert levels this coming May 13 mid-term elections. Major Ramon Zagala, AFP public affairs office chief, said that the security situation is very stable so far. He also clarified that the ambush incidents staged against people seeking various electoral posts has no bearing on the country’s security as these incidents are merely crime and could be resolved by the local police. “The right to suffrage is just a normal activity and the AFP (as of now) sees to reason to up its alert levels,” Zagala stressed. However, he added that the military is more than ready to assist the Philippine National Police in its peace and security tasked should it be called to do so.
