COTABATO City––Visitors to the Ramadhan Village inside the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) compound here have had their fill of cultural presentations and a taste of Moro culinary delights every night since the start of the month of fasting on June 16. The Ramadhan village,

also known as “Ramadhan Fair” may be likened to a Christmas village during the yuletide season. After breaking the fast and a prayer called “Tarawi,” visitors would be entertained by various cultural presentations from different tribal villages inside the ARMM compound. “Here you can tour the

region in an hour,” said Samaon Ismael, one of the visitors who joined the congregational prayer Monday night. Visitors can witness a war dance and listen to the melody of kulintang at the Iranon villages. At the nearby Tausug village, they can watch See village, page A11

CAGAYAN de Oro City--A senior army officer survived an early morning ambushed Thursday morning near the region’s largest military camp here, police investigators said. Army Col. Edwin Respicio, of the 10th army reserved command base, was driving his way to the army base when the suspects riding in tandem drove beside his car and pumped bullets hitting him in the face. Police Supt. Lemuel Gonda, chief of the city’s police operation, said that the unidentified gunmen shot Respicio in the suburban village of Patag, home of the army’s 4th Infantry Division, the largest military camp in Northern Mindanao. Respicio, who survived the slay attempt, was taken to a nearby hospital by a taxicab driver who happened to pass by the crime scene prior to the arrival of law enforcers and investigators.

Villar’s family biz planning to expand ventures in Socot GENERAL Santos City -- Companies owned by the family of former Senate President Manuel Villar are reportedly planning to expand their ventures in the coming months in parts of South Cotabato province. South Cotabato Gov. Daisy Avance-Fuentes said Thursday the former senator is currently visiting several areas in the province to explore possible business and investment opportunities. South Cotabato is presently celebrating its 49th foundation anniversary and 16th T’nalak Festival. The governor said Villar, who turned his attention on his family’s businesses after stints in the House of Representatives and the Senate, and failed presidential bid in 2010, personally toured local shopping malls in Koronadal City on Wednesday. “The (Villar family) is very positive with South Cotabato as an investment destination and currently looking at a major project in Koronadal City,” she

said in an interview over Bombo Radyo Koronadal. But Fuentes, who had an earlier meeting with the former senator, declined to give further details on the planned business venture. Villar is chairman of Vista Land & Lifescapes Inc., which is one of the country’s biggest property developers. Vista Land is the holding company of Brittany, Crow n Asi a, C amel l a Homes, C ommunit ies Philippines and Vista Residences. His family also owns StarMalls Inc. and the Finds chain of convenience stores. Two years ago, Villar’s Camella Homes started the de velopment of a 12.4-hectare property in Barangay Carpenter Hill in Koronadal City.


The company has signified to invest around P500 million for the prime residential development project, which is its first in South Cotabato. Meantime, Fuentes said the former senator will be joined in Koronadal City on Saturday by his son, Las Pinas Rep. Mark Villar. She said the younger Villar will grace the province’s foundation anniversary day on July 18 and culmination of the T’nalak Festival. Fuentes said Senators Grace Poe and Francis Escudero have also confirmed to attend Saturday’s festivities. On Wednesday, the governor said Manila Vice Mayor Iskho Moreno arrived in Koronadal City to join the celebrations. Senators Lito Lapid and Ferdinand Marcos Jr., Tourism Infrastructure and Economic Zone Authority chief operating officer Mark Lapid, and Pasig Rep. Roman Romulo and celebrity-wife Shalani graced the opening of the festivities last July 10. (MindaNews)

Entry of Rodriguez changes the political ambiance No doubt, the EmanoMoreno rematch for the Cagayan De Oro City’s mayoral post would be a much-awaited event next year. Many political observers share a common perception that the rematch would end all the “ifs and buts” that hound Moreno’s election to office in the 2010 mayoral contest. Before anything else, let us not forget that we are talking about a presumptive condition where Emano decides to run for mayor in 2016. Nevertheless, if Emano would forego the idea of running for the mayoral post, the political atmosphere would, then be different. Anyway, an aberration of the local political scenario will also take place should an ot h e r c h a l l e nge r ( s ) comes in. There are a lot too many names coming out this early. The most popular is that of Rep. Rufus Rodriguez, Second District of Cagayan De Oro. Rodriguez is now in his last term. While Rodriguez might fancy the idea of running

for senator in the 2016, the Congressman has not made any categorical decision. Assuming that Rodriguez will decide to run for the mayoral post in 2016, a shakeup in the local political setting would take place. The prize rematch of the Emano-Moreno clash would lose steam. The political balance would shift toward the EmanoRodriguez bout. As we have discussed in previous columns, if Rodriguez would decide to run for Mayor, Moreno would become a “sacrificial lamb.” Without a political base, Moreno would transform into a “nuisance” candidate. In short, unless a “fortuitous event” takes place, Moreno’s chances of winning is doomed. The fortuitous event would definitely become another intense issue. That is another story. The point is that a political battle between Emano and Rodriguez would have a repercussion in the city’s political geography. Rodriguez claims to be in control

fund to dangle to members of Congress to get their support on important legislative measures. That maturity ensures their pork barrel system is not abused by legislators. Until now I have no quarrel with granting pork barrel fund to solons. It is the loose system governing the fund leading to its abuse by the solons that I find revolting. In our case, pork fund is being treated by the solons as their own and as such could disburse them based on their personal whim and caprice. This loose system led to the much ballyhooed abuse by the congressmen and senators of their pork fund. I do not know if the new system where the solon’s involvement in the disbursement of the pork fund is

limited only to identifying their pet projects is a counter-measure against its abuse. The actual disbursement and implementation may be undertaken by the national line agency where these funds have been allocated in the national budget but does this prevent abuse? Will this new system work? I really don’t know. But knowing the creativity of our solons, no one could really tell with certainty that this new system is fool-proof from abuse, which is actually the issue why this fund became the most hated fund in the national budget. But I can’t imagine also the presidency held hostage by Congress. That is far worse than not having pork fund in the national budget. An inutile presidency is a nightmare for the entire country. So how are we going to solve the problem like pork barrel fund? I am sure, however, that corruption can be avoided if a fool-proof system is put in place to insulate the pork barrel fund from being abuse by anyone. But I must confess I don’t have any suggestion in this regard. What I can only say is that it is incumbent upon the Office of the President to see to it that this fund will no longer be abused like

top army officer sounds alarming. It is also an irony that the slay-attempt took place within the perimeter of the region’s largest military camp – the 4th Infantry Division. The military is equally concerned that its intelligence community is now working to determine the motive of the ambuscade. While the incident was a purely police matter, the military could not but be apprehensive until the motive is known. What bothers the military is the notion that the ambuscade could have been part of a “terror’ plan designed to pick on ranking military officials. The police now handle the case. The early resolution of the incident would certainly lead to the identification of the suspects. Once the suspects and the motive of the slay attempt are established, the anxieties of the residents and the military would also be put to rest. -0- send comments/ reaction: crisguardian@

how it was abused in the past for which three senators are now in jail. If the executive branch can’t make this assurance, then better not disburse this fund that Lacson and Osmena had said to be pork in nature. Any disbursement of this fund without such assurance will only bolster the fear that it is really intended to be abused to give the solons much needed funding for their political intentions next year. Serve the poor Time and again I have been asked to expound the theme that Pope Francis commonly tell the faithful in his homilies or messages wherever he is which is that of serving the poor. Poverty, we should all understand, is an anomaly in the eyes of God. God never intended his prized creature, humans, to be in such a dire state as being in abject poverty hence the Pope’s call for the faithful to serve the poor. The faithful being the body of Christ is mandated to behave, act and move according to the teachings of its head, Jesus. When Jesus was asked by a rich young man how he can enter the Kingdom of God, He told him to have all his possesSee bacon, page A10

Daily Inspiration

Looking up

“Sorrow looks back. Worry looks around. Faith looks up.” Anonymous

Juvy Sarraga

SORROW: Uneasiness, unhappiness; sadness or pain of mind produced by loss or regret. WORRY: Anxiety; To torment oneself with disturbing thoughts; to fret. FAITH: The substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Heb.11:1.) FAITH looks up. It demands we look up. We have to look up. If we choose

not to look up, we begin to look down, around and back again and again and again. Our mind becomes a repetitive tape recording. We continue to worry, fret, invite more sorrow and then feel lost. Look up. Look forward. Use your God given brain/heart, make your decision and take it to your Creator. Dismiss the sword of sorrow, block the wormhole of worry and dance in the fountain of faith. You were meant to revel, dance and celebrate life especially amidst the chaos. Lock into looking up!

Normin’s dynamic duo scores big in nat’l competitiveness Bukidnon • Camiguin • Lanao del Norte • Lanao del Sur • Misamis Occidental • Misamis Oriental

Northern Mindanao’s top performing province and city scored big in the 3rd Regional Competitiveness Summit held Thursday, 16 July 2015 at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) Reception Hall. Over 1,000 delegates composed of Local Chief Executives, representatives from the LGUs, and delegates from National Government Agencies, the Academe, and the Private Sector. Misamis Oriental was ranked the 2nd Most Competitive Province in the newly created category for provinces while Cagayan de Oro ranked 6th in the newly created Highly Urbanized City Category. “I am happy Misamis Oriental is adjudged as the 2nd Most Competitive Province of the country,” said Misamis Oriental Vice Gov. Joey Pelaez in a text message to this paper. “This is again a challenge for the leadership of the province to work harder to maintain our competitive edge.”

Davao del Sur in Region 11 was adjudged the Most Competitive Province with Cebu province coming in at 3rd. Meantime, Manila was ranked the #1 Most Competitive City in the new Highly Urbanized Category, followed by Makati at #2 and Cebu at #3. The Regional Competitiveness Summit, the Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index (CMCI) measures competitiveness at the local government level using 28 indicators grouped into three equallyweighted pillars: Economic Dynamism, Government Efficiency, and Infrastructure. Scores on each pillar were combined to form the overall score used to rank cities and municipalities. Cagayan de Oro ranked second in government efficiency (up from 5th in 2014), fifth in infrastructure (from 2nd in 2014) and 20th in economic dynamism (from 9th in 2014). Since 2013, the National Competitiveness Council

(NCC), through the Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index, has been advocating building more competitive local government units in order to raise the overall competitiveness of the country. Through public-private collaboration, NCC has successfully engaged LGUs to participate in the index which presents economic development and competitiveness indicators at the local government levels. The Cities and Municipalities Competitiveness Index program encourages LGUs to gather and submit data that would measure their performance on Economic Dynamism, Government Efficiency, and

Quiboloy followers implicated to food poisoning assured of legal help DAVAO City––Followers of international evangelist Pastor Apollo Quiboloy who were arrested for selling candies that were believed to be the cause of food poisoning in Caraga region were assured of legal assistance. Expired durian and mangosteen candies reportedly downed a total of 1,699 victims, mostly children, in Surigao del Norte, Surigao del Sur and Agusan del Sur last week. The candies carried the brand name Wendy’s. Lawyer Sweetheart Aldevera told reporters that a team from Kingdom of Jesus Christ went to Surigao Monday and confirmed that at least seven of the arrested vendors were indeed members of their church. “Over the weekend what we had were raw reports. We relied on texts and calls from our members who are near in Surigao. We could not fully verify. But yesterday, there was a member who confirmed that they are members. We cannot neglect them,” she said. The team dispatched in Surigao, she said, will make sure that all the members will get what they need. The head of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ who

Infrastructure. Each pillar has indicators which provide a more detailed view of the economic status of the locality. There are 8 indicators for Economic Dynamism and 10 indicators for both Government Efficiency and Infrastructure, totaling 28 indicators. The data submitted by the Local Government Units, through the assistance of a partner Academe and the Regional Competitiveness Committees, is used for the final scoring and ranking. In 2013, 122 cities and 163 municipalities partici-

pated in the index when Cagayan de Oro ranked #1 as the Most Competitive City. This increased to 136 cities and 399 municipalities in 2014 when Cagayan de Oro ranked No. 2 after Makati. This year, 2015, there were 142 cities and 978 municipalities participating in the index or a total of 1,120 participants out of 1,634 LGUs in the country. This means 68% of the LGUs have been covered this year versus the 17% starting coverage in 2013. The increasing coverage of the index signifies a higher level of awareness on the importance of being measured based on the three pillars and a stronger commitment to improve LGU performance based on the resulting ranking. Previously, the NCC conferred awards for the Top 3 Overall Most Competitive Cities and Municipalities and also recognized the Top

3 Most Competitive Cities and Municipalities per pillar (Economic Dynamism, Government Efficiency, and Infrastructure). To more accurately gauge the competitiveness of the localities, NCC introduced new award categories during the summit: 3rd to 6th Class Municipalities, 1st to 2nd Class Municipalities, Component Cities, and Highly Urbanized Cities. Besides the awarding ceremony, the CMCI website containing the data provided by the LGUs and infographics was also launched during the same occasion. The data can be used by potential investors in deciding where to locate their businesses. More importantly, the data can serve as a tool for the LGUs to evaluate the competitiveness of their locality and take the steps to improve performance and attractiveness for investments.

And extend the legal help we could,” she added. The lawyer added they are awaiting the resolution from the prosecutor to know how much the bail would be so that the detained members could gain temporary freedom. She said one of the members admitted that even before he became a member he was already selling candies. “Once you become a member, you are not com-

Davao amends Halal ordinance


AVAO CITY – The City Council of Davao will pass on third and final reading next week a resolution amending the existing “Halal Ordinance.” City Councilor Mabel Sunga-Acosta underscored the need to update the five-year-old ordinance in order to advance and protect the rights, culture and lifestyle of the Muslims by “allowing them to rest easy knowing that they consume products which are halal not only in name, but more importantly in fact.” In the proposed amendment, food establishments that offer Halal-processed food and beverages should secure a Halal certification from the National Commission for Muslim Filipinos (NCMF). If passed into law, the Halal-accredited establishments will then be monitored by the City Health Office (CHO) to check if they adhere to the standards as provided for by the NCMF. “The common misconception with regard to Halal is that it pertains to food products that have no pork or other forbidden ingredients. However, Halal is more than a word to de-

scribe food. It is a way of life, following the teachings of Islam to achieve a ‘holy’ or ‘blessed’ lifestyle. It goes beyond food and drink and is imbibed in everything they do,” she added. At present, businesses secure their Halal accreditation from the Davao City Muslim Ulama Halal Certifying and Monitoring Agency. However, the councilor said that NCMF provides a more standardized regulations in Halal-processing that apply to all establishments that offer food or non-food products and services. “The NCFM is a national commission mandated under Article II of Republic Act No. 9997 to promote and develop the Philippine Halal Industry and accredit Halal-certifying entities/ bodies. The change was in line with established national laws and provided for an umbrella organization which would accredit other agencies hoping to issue Halal certifications,” she pointed out. Acosta added that the updated version will penalize establishments or even manufacturing companies if they are caught using Halal logo when they are not yet certified.

Halal Festival Different local players joined in the 1st Halal Mindanao Festival, which opened July 15 until July 16, at the Abreeza of the Ayala Malls. Various products – including food, apparel, fashion accessories, foodprocessing techniques, and other products and services

that are Halal-certified – are showcased in the two-day festival. The event was intended as a venue to promote and strengthen the Halal industry in Mindanao, as well as educate the public on Halal products and services. Mallgoers will also learn about the initiatives and policies of the Autono-

mous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) on Halal food and other Halalcertified products. Budding entrepreneurs will be provided with information on the new market opportunities. While efforts to promote the industry are now being strengthened, Acosta said the industry lacks a Muslim

workforce to step up the production capacity. “The problem is, we don’t have food technologists who are Muslims,” she added while encouraging students to take up courses that are related to food technology in order to boost the industry workforce. (Antonio L. Colina IV / MindaNews)

Davao City council okays resolution on trading center DAVAO CITY -- The city council passed on third and final reading Monday a resolution allowing the city mayor to sign in behalf of the local government a memorandum of agreement (MOA) on the establishment of a trading center with the Department of Agriculture-XI. The city government is eyeing to start work on the five-hectare Agri-Pinoy Trading Center (APTC) in Daliao, Toril on September 8 this year. Councilor Marissa P. Salvador-Abella, chair of the committee on agriculture and food, told reporters Tuesday that the city council is working for the MOA to be signed between Mayor Rodrigo R. Duterte and DA-XI director Remelyn Recoter before end of this month. DA XI will fund the construction of the trading center which has an

estimated budget of P70 million. “DA 11 will allocate and disburse the same fund as grant under fund transfer arrangement to the City Government for the establishment of the center,” paragraph 2, Article 1 of the MOA stated. Earlier, the city government signed a MOA with the National Development Corporation (NDC) for the use of at least five hectares of its 25-hectare property in Daliao, Toril for 15 years. Aside from the trading venue, the city government will also put up a training area for farmers to learn the best practices in agriculture and how to maintain quality in their production. “We will have a demo farm so that farmers will learn how to compete globally,” Abells said. The center will also hold trainings on financial literacy and capacity-building

for farmers to improve their knowledge on doing business. Abella said the trading center will boost the agriculture sector, as it will provide a centralized venue where all the fruits and vegetables go while giving farmers a fair price for their produce. The APTC will come complete with cold storage facilities to maintain the freshness and quality of the commodities. The center will also eliminate the participation of middlemen in the trading of agricultural products, as all transactions at the center will have to be made by accredited farmers. “Our focus for this center is the farmers,” Abella said, adding the city will pay them for their produce. By putting up a centralized trading venue, all private markets in the city will have to get their supply of fruits and vegetables from the center. Abella said farmers will

be required to lessen the use of pesticides, or if possible, go organic. The center aims to harmonize the relationships between the farmers and the buyers/consumers by increasing farmers’ income and reduce the retail and consumer prices of vegetables, fruits, and other food crops. Fresh supplies from Kapatagan, Digos City and Bukidnon will be delivered straight to APTC from where the proposed barangay food terminals get their fresh fruits and vegetables. Under the MOA, Abella pointed out the city government will select the management board who will oversee the operation. The first phase of APTC is targeted to be completed by December 2016. Abella added the city is hoping to receive another P70 million from DA XI for the project’s second phase. (Antonio L. Colina IV/MindaNews)

Fortun scores lack of support for Taguibo Watershed rehab By PAT SAMONTE, Regional Editor-Caraga


UTUAN CITY – Agusan del Norte First District Rep. Lawrence Lemuel Fortun has lamented that since he took his congressional post in 2013, no serious efforts and genuine commitment have been taken to save the Taguibo watershed, the primary source of potable water in this city of 300,000 population. Fortun expressed his disappointment in a speech keynoting a workshop on Modalities, Practices and Experiences in the Implementation of Payment for Ecosystem Services at Dottie’s Place here on Wednesday. In attendance were technical experts from Relief International – Enterprise Works Worldwide Philippines, Inc. (RI-EWWP), Wildlife-Friendly Enterprise Network, Father Saturnino Urios University (FSUU) College of Law, LGU-Butuan, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Department of Trade and Industry, and Department of Agriculture. According to Fortun, “We have yet to see a serious implementation of the reforestation and rehabilitation programs, and support to the efforts of non-government organizations and people’s organizations like the Save Taguibo Watershed Network.” It will be recalled that prior to his election as congressman in 2013, Fortun, as vice-mayor and presiding

officer of the city council, led the passage of the Butuan City Watershed Code aided by the reactivated Environment and Natural Resources Council. The local legislation was aimed at strengthening efforts and programs to protect and retrieve Taguibo Watershed’s sustainability to provide the city’s potable water needs.

While he did not resort to the blame game, Fortun put to task man’s propensity to rationalize and hide behind his own hardheadedness. “The whole advocacy of protecting the environment is captured by its battlecry: ‘Water is life.’ This has also been expounded by a parody of Cartesian cogito, Bibo

Ergo Sum: I think therefore, I am.” “But this one-line parody of Cartesian Cogito also captures our rhetoric refusal to accept that we are helplessly dependent on nature and we cannot live without its abundance and endowments. It is our cowardly retreat to implore fundamental and

particularistic need to consume and exploit spheres over which we hold no dominion; to rationalize our colonizing deeds of nature and somehow refuse respect over flora and fauna, and other crusades of exhausting ecological guilt if and when nature starts to strikes back.” As Fortun took a strong stand on Taguibo Watershed’s current condition, he cited three critical issues that good governance has to confront head on. He narrated the “pains of threats” caused by unwarranted activities, such as, timber poaching, mining and illegal road construction that “until now have come to take its toll against Butuan’s major source of potable water.” The second source of challenge in the watershed is its overlapping tenurial instrument which the young solon stressed “as a case where one particular common-pool resource cut across many tenurial instruments, and have been managed by different local institutions, supervised by many different government agencies with

different operational rules which are often ambiguous and conflicting.” “The third challenge is the Taguibo common-pool resource, and perhaps, more compelling, is its complex absence of equitable sharing of gains and costs from resource units withdrawn from the common-pool resource,” Fortun said. Fortun took a cue from a proposal of Rev. Fr. Randy Jasper Odchigue, a scholar from the Father Saturnino Urios University, calling for a “dissenting particularity” in confronting ecological issues, meaning, a preference to favor and fight for justice, love, compassion for and in behalf of the poor.

Ban on aerial spraying over banana plantations sought See WEEKEND, page A11

SEVEN party-list lawmakers are pushing for a ban on aerial spraying over banana plantations and other agricultural crops in the country. “Aerial spraying is not only a nuisance. It is also injurious to the health of the people living near banana plantations,” the authors said. Under consideration by the Committee on Ecology chaired by Rep. Amado S. Bagatsing (5th District, Manila) is HB 3857 entitled “An Act prohibiting aerial spraying as a method of applying chemicals and similar substances on agricultural crops.” Authors include: Gabriela Women’s Partylist Reps. Luzviminda Ilagan and Emmi De Jesus; BAYAN Muna Reps. Neri Colmenares and Carlos Isagani Zarate; ACT Teachers’ Partylist Rep. Antonio Tinio; Anakpawis Partylist Rep. Fernando Hicap; and Kabataan Partylist Rep. Terry

Ridon. The lawmakers recalled that the bill, filed in February 2014, was first filed during the 15th Congress and denominated as HB 5249. “For more than a decade now, the people living near banana plantations in Mindanao are seeking the prohibition of aerial spraying. And they have compelling reasons for their crusade: aerial spraying is disrupting their lives, contaminating their environment and injurious to their health,” the authors stressed. To accentuate their point that aerial spraying is not only a nuisance but also very injurious to human health, the authors noted that a 2006 study made by the Department of Health revealed that people living in Hagonoy, Davao del Sur showed high levels of ethylenethiourea (ETU) in their blood samples. ETU and clorothalonil were also found in high levels in the soil and air of the village and,

New measure seeks to establish Philippine Small Ruminants Center By JAZMIN S. CAMERO

A LAWMAKER has filed a measure establishing Philippine Small Ruminants Center to increase the local supply of meat, milk and fiber from goats, sheep and other small ruminants. Rep. Joseph Gilbert F. Violago (2nd District, Nueva Ecija) said House Bill 4803 would enhance and accelerate the development of the small ruminants sector as a sunshine industry that will lead to increased meat and milk production for the country. “It would improve the income to farmers, employment opportunities for rural folks, establishment of agroenterprises, and ultimately improved living conditions in our farming communities especially in the province of Nueva Ecija,” Violago said. He said there are about 150 species of ruminant, which include both domestic and wild species such as cattle, goats, sheep, giraffes, yaks, deer, camels, llamas, antelope, and some macropods. In the Philippines, the Small Ruminants Center

(SRC) at Central Luzon State University (CLSU) in the Science City of Muñoz, Nueva Ecija has been designated as the lead national center for research and development in small ruminants and it has been in operation for almost 20 years now. “The center has developed technologies for brood stock improvement, feeding management, cultural practices, pasture establishment, and products development,” Violago said. Violago said the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resources Research and Development of the Department of Science and Technology (PCARRD-DOST) has designated SRC as the first and only Center of Excellence in small ruminant research. Under the measure, Philippine Small Ruminants Center shall be created with the National Center based in the Central Luzon State University and with satellite centers in the other goat and sheep centers in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

because of chemical drift, even in nearby areas. ETU is a breakdown product of Mancozeb, a fungicide widely used by large scale banana growers but has been classified as carcinogenic by the State of California and the Swedish pesticide regulatory authority. “It has been documented to have produced ‘follicular’ and ‘pallilary’ thyroid cancer in rats and ‘hepatocellular’ cancer in mice. The study also found that 52% of the village residents who reported to have been exposed to aerial spraying showed postexposure symptoms like eyeredness, eye pain, eye tearing, eye and skin itchiness, headache, and spells of vomiting and dizziness,” the authors noted. Hagonoy, Davao del Sur hosts several banana plantations, the biggest of which is Guilhing Agricultural Development Corporation, a subsidiary of the Lapanday Group of Companies, the authors noted. Another important argument

for the ban is that “aerial spraying also affects the vegetation and animal life in the vicinity of banana plantations.” “Residents have reported that the soil in their villages had exhibited diminished fertility and plant growth in their backyard and farms had been seriously stunted. They now find it difficult to grown food crops and people find it harder to raise pigs and chickens as they just die out. They also believe that their natural sources of water have been contaminated because a lot of the animals refused to drink from streams and springs, and those that do eventually die,” they lamented. According to the lawmakers, the Philippine Banana Growers and Exporters Association (PBGEA) had challenged the people’s demand for prohibition on grounds of property rights and that aerial spraying is ‘the best practice’ in applying pesticides. They further contended that prohibiting aerial spraying would kill

the banana industry. The authors added that such contentions are fallacious, narrow and self-serving which cannot defeat the constitutionallyguaranteed primodial rights of our people to health and sound environment. The property rights of banana planters end where the health of the people and whole communities begin; the profits of a few cannot be above the welfare of the many. The bill also provides for penalty provisions ranging from a fine of P50,000 to P150,000 and/ or imprisonment of from not less three (3) months to one (1) year plus suspension or cancellation of business permits and license and, on the part of the pilot, cancellation of his pilot’s license on his third offense. “A method which has proved to be nuisance and is deleterious to health and environment cannot, by any measure, be considered as a ‘best practice’,” they argued.

RDRRMC line agencies plant trees along Davao river By Joey Sem G. Dalumpines of PIA-Davao

DAVAO City--Line agencies under the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council 11 joined hands in planting Narra trees at the bank of the Davao River as part of the commemoration of July as National Disaster Consciousness Month. Rebecca Lopez, acting regional director of the Office of Civil Defense 11 said tree growing gives the challenge to provide clean air and shades for the future generation.

She said trees provides the legacy of a clean and green environment for the young. “Tree growing is a move to mitigate the impact of global warming,” Lopez said. The planting of Narra trees was located one hundred meters away from the bank of the Davao River at Barangay Tigatto, Buhangin which is part of the flood plain. Lopez said the barangay government of Tigatto will ensure that the Narra trees grow. See TREES, page A11

It is more blessed to give than to receive Special Gospel of the day (July17, 2015-Friday) Luke 16:1931”Now there was a rich man, and he habitually dressed in purple and fine linen, joyously living in splendor every day. “And a poor man named Lazarus was laid at his gate, covered with sores, and longing to be fed with the crumbs which were falling from the rich man’s table; besides, even the dogs were coming and licking his sores. Now the poor man died and was carried away by the angels to Abraham’s bosom; and the rich man also died and was buried. “In Hades he lifted up his eyes, being in torment, and saw Abraham far away and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried out and said, `Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus so that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool off my tongue, for I am in agony in this flame: What is lacking is the openness of your heart to see the people’s agony in your surroundings. There are many time that we are like Pontius Pilate who washed his hands to escape from a certain accountability and sin. The truth, he committed a big sin for that because he had the power supposedly to let Jesus free. This is also happenings to each one of us because we never mind the people

sions sold with the proceeds given to the poor. The suggestion was made when the rich young man argued with Jesus that he has already followed the law to the letter but he still feels there is a void, a vacuum in his life. But the suggestion only made the rich young man sad because he can’t part with his wealth much more give the proceeds of his possessions to the poor. Factually, being able to serve others one first needs to forget about himself. One’s wealth or one’s desire to have wealth only reinforces the behavior of self-importance and selfentitlements hence the demand for one to humble himself before he can even think of serving others.

GRATITUDE FROM PUNDASAN NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL – VICE GOVERNOR JOEY G. PELAEZ was given a Certificate of Commendation by the General Parents-Teachers Association (GPTA) of PunDaSan National High School headed by Mr. Zenaido G. Piquero (left photo, left) when the former visited the school for the distribution of 375 books donated by Children International Philippines, Inc. The simple turn-over ceremony was witnessed by Dr. Epitacio P. Lauroza, Jr. (Principal), faculty, parents and students of the said school. Vice Governor Pelaez emphasized in his message the importance in learning how to speak, write and understand English as this is the edge of the Filipinos among its Asian counterparts.

Biblical reflection

Bro. Edcel L. Closas around us. Take note, to have more is not a sin but it is a mortal sin if you will not share although you have more in your life. Acts 20:35”In everything I showed you that by working hard in this manner you must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said, `It is more blessed to give than to receive. Proverbs 28:27”He who gives to the poor will never want, but he who shuts his eyes will have many curses. Remember: The real richness is not what you possessed but on what you give to others. Once you will die, your goodness will remain alive in the hearts of the people benefited because of your kindness. In order not to be forgotten, do good right now: Printing paid by: Neneth Ranoa - Bobong Balino- Edith Ranoa, PhD- Tony Jordan – Cagayan De Oro: My new number: 09187148435: God loves you!!!

The “me first” behavior of humans is what is actually alienating them from each other. The ego and human greed for power, fame and wealth are the things that cause the impoverishment of the many in our world today hence the need for the faithful to go out and serve the poor so that they not remain poor forever for that is not what the picture of the Kingdom of God is.

the agency has not seen any weather disturbance near the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) that may develop into tropical cyclone within the next three days or until weekend. He said the agency expect three to five tropical cyclones to affect the country this month. Two tropical cyclones -“Egay” and “Falcon” -- have so far entered the country this month which both enhanced the southwest monsoon. The next tropical cyclone will be named “Goring”. Except in Northern Luzon, most parts of the country will continue to experience generally fair weather as the southwest monsoon continues to be the dominant weather system affecting the country. For Thursday forecast, monsoon rains which may trigger flashfloods and land-

slides will be experienced over Ilocos region, province of Benguet and the islands of Batanes, Calayan and Babuyan. Occasional rains are expected over the rest of Cordillera and the provinces of Zambales and Bataan while partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated thunderstorms will prevail over Metro Manila and the rest of the country. Moderate to strong winds blowing from the southwest will prevail over Luzon and Visayas and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough. Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the southwest with slight to moderate seas. Aurelio said with the presence of southwest monsoon the state-run weather bureau also issued gale warning due to strong gale force wind as the sea condition will be rough to very rough is expected to affect the seaboards of Northern and Central Luzon. “Fishing boats and other small seacrafts are advised not to venture out into the sea while larger sea vessels are alerted against big waves,” it warned.

Gonda said that police investigators are still gathering witnesses while the car owned by the victim is now undergoing examination at the police regional command here. “Based on the trajectory of the bullets, the police laboratory experts could determine the kind of firearms and the exact position of the car and the victim when the ambuscade took place,” Gonda said. He said the police are still trying to establish the motive for the shooting. Capt. Patrick Martinez, the spokesperson of the army 4ID, said that they would leave the investigation to the police. “The 10th army reserved base is not under the jurisdiction of the army’s 4ID but we would want to be updated on the investigation,” Martinez said. The slay attempt of Respicio is one of the daring ambushes involving a senior military officer here as the local law enforcers battle the upsurge of crime incidence in this trading capital of Northern Mindanao.

As of 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, the police already booked 27 male suspected drug pushers and 12 females arrested during the operation. The joint operation also yielded 13 firearms; three hand grenades of which seven were neutralized; 10 assorted ammunition; and seized 329.3 grams of suspected shabu; 73 grams marijuana; and, three motorcycle units. Booking and recording of arrested persons and materials are still ongoing at DCPO Gymnasium. During the AFP-PNP press corps forum, CIDG chief Director Benjamin Magalong said the operation was part of their nationwide one-time big-time operation aimed at reducing supply of illegal drugs and arrest of drug pushers. Magalong said the targets of the operation were individuals involved in drug trafficking, illegal firearms, robbery and holdup and criminals. When asked why they prey on smalltime drug peddlers, Magalong said big-time pushers are difficult to track especially that they don’t possess the illegal drugs. “These are people who do the retail – kung hindi gagalawin ang mga ito parang pinababayaan mo rin (if you will not do something to these people it is like not addressing the) street level operation. There are more of them,” he said, adding that fighting against street level retailers has bigger impact. Magalong explained that operating against big-time drug pushers requires concerted effort and it takes time to build up cases. He said it requires intensified operational research, trade craft operation and antimoney laundering to really come up with a big case. He disclosed there will be more follow up operations. Meanwhile, he lauded the cooperation of all law enforcers in Davao City for the successful operation. Magalong was also grateful of the full support of Mayor Rodrigo Duterte to make the operation successful. PDEA was assisted by the different police stations under the Davao City Police Office (DCPO), the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG), Martime Police, Police Regional Office (PRO) XI and Regional Intelligence Unit.

In between “tours,” guests can taste different Moro delicacies for a very reasonable price. “The atmosphere is really great here; our identity is shown here, in just one setting. In less than an hour one can feel, learn and be educated about the Muslim culture, tradition and food,” Secretary Don Loong of the ARMM Department of Public Works and Highways said. The Ramadhan village is a reflection of Muslim Mindanao, Bai Shalimar Candao, Maguindanao tourism chief, said. “You can see here what you have not seen in the past because our history is reborn here,” Candao said in Filipino, citing the case of Maguindanao. “This is Walay na Sultan (House of Sultan),” she said, gesturing to the structure nearby. “The concept of Maguindanao village is to showcase the Maguindanao culture on how it has evolved from [past] centuries to the present,” she added. “Of course we are very happy. It is only now that our visitors learn about our Iranun culture and how we evolved in the autonomous region,” said Mayor Abolais Manalao of Buldon, Maguindanao and host of Maguindanao Iranun village. Days before the Eud’l Fitr celebration marking the end of Ramadhan, organizers said they have prepared a grand event that includes several cultural presentations for guests. During Ramadhan Muslims fast from dawn to dusk and devote more time to prayers and charity works as a religious obligation. (Ferdinandh Cabrera/MindaNews)

icy body, NASA said. The mountains likely formed no more than 100 million years ago - mere youngsters relative to the 4.56-billion-year age of the solar system - and may still be in the process of building, said Geology, Geophysics and Imaging (GGI) team leader Jeff Moore of NASA’s Ames Research Centre in California. That suggests the closeup region, which covers less than one per cent of Pluto’s surface, may still be geologically active today, researchers said. Moore and his colleagues base the youthful age estimate on the lack of craters in this scene. Like the rest of Pluto, this region would presumably have been pummelled by space debris for billions of years and would have once been heavily cratered - unless recent activity had given the region a face-lift, erasing those pockmarks. “This is one of the youngest surfaces we’ve ever seen in the solar system,” said Moore. Unlike the icy moons of

giant planets, Pluto cannot be heated by gravitational interactions with a much larger planetary body. Some other process must be generating the mountainous landscape. “This may cause us to rethink what powers geological activity on many other icy worlds,” said GGI deputy team leader John Spencer of the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado. The mountains are probably composed of Pluto’s water-ice “bedrock.” Although methane and nitrogen ice covers much of the surface of Pluto, these materials are not strong enough to build the mountains. Instead, a stiffer material, most likely water-ice, created the peaks. “At Pluto’s temperatures, water-ice behaves more like rock,” said deputy GGI lead Bill McKinnon of Washington University, St Louis. The close-up image was taken about 1.5 hours before New Horizons closest approach to Pluto, when the craft was 77,000 kilometres from the surface of the dwarf planet. (PNA/PTI)
