Therma South to start operations next week By Juzel L. Danganan of Philippine News Agency


ANILA – Mindanao-based Therma South Inc., is scheduled to start commercial operations next week with its first 150-megawatt (MW) unit, said Aboitiz Power Corp. president and chief operating officer Antonio Moraza.

”Commercial operations sometime next week, we have been testing,” he told reporters when asked about the power plant. Therma South Inc. is a subsidiary of Aboitiz Power Corp. The president noted the coal-fired power plant also had problems during its

commissioning, coinciding with the brownouts in Mindanao caused by the shutdown of the 210-MW STEAG State Power Inc. (SPI) coal-fired power plant and the 108.48-MW Mt. Apo geothermal power plant. Moraza, however, added the current and improved power situation in Mindanao has made everyone glad. With the operations of the baseload power plant, Mindanao will have more stable power and lower the risk of brownouts. Therma South Inc. was targeted to start commercial operations during the second quarter of the year, but was damaged due to the Mindanao-wide blackout

that occurred on April 5. According to Energy Department data, 20 distribution utilities will source capacity from the Php 24-billion coal fired power plant, which will have two 150-MW units. Mindanao was earlier reported to have a shortage in capacity due to the low water levels of its hydropower plants, which is the majority power source in Mindanao. The Mindanao Power Monitoring Committee (MPMC) said in July the low water levels brought few capacity to the Agus-Pulangi hydropower complexes. It provides around half of the island’s power supply.

A continuing proxy war in Mindanao By H. Marcos C. Mordeno of MindaNews MALAYBALAY City--It was during Martial Law that the military started using subalterns in the campaign against the communist-led New People’s Army (NPA). In areas that were heavily influenced or infiltrated by rebel forces the military would train and arm these groups, and set them loose against the guerrillas and civilians suspected to be aiding the armed movement. Those groups were not the Civilian Home Defense Force, the precursor of the Civilian Armed Force Geographical Unit; they were a mishmash of millenarian sects whose practices blend Catholicism with folk beliefs. There is good reason to believe they evolved from groups like the Colorum and Lapiang Malaya, which fought for freedom from colonialism and for peasant emancipation. As they were imbued however with high doses of anti-communism, the sects that emerged during Martial Law shed off [their] libertarian genes and mutated into petty tyrants. These quasi-religious sects went by different names. One was called Sagrado Corazon Senor (Sacred Heart of Jesus), although their ways were anything but sacred. Said to have started in Initao town in Misamis Oriental, the Tadtad, as the group was called for their practice of mutilating their victims in what would appear to be ritual killings, announced their existence with the massacre of Renato Bucag, his wife Helen and son Renato Jr. in 1984. They all died with hack wounds. Bucag, a city councilor in Gingoog, belonged to a political party opposing the dictatorship.

A police official was implicated in the bloodbath. But instead of being prosecuted, a politician took him in as personal bodyguard. In other provinces of Mindanao similar sects emerged in the fight against the NPA – Rock Christ, Ilaga (Rat), Rizalian, Bolo Battalion, to name some. The Ilaga, originally used against the Moro National Liberation Front, also took part in the anti-insurgency campaign. They had been accused of committing atrocities against civilians, but it was the murder of Italian missionary Fr. Tullio Favali in Tulunan, North Cotabato in 1985 that sparked international outrage leading to the prosecution and conviction of Ilaga leaders, among them Norberto, Edilberto and Elpidio Manero. (The Manero brothers were convicted in 1987. Edilberto and Elpidio were released in 2003 and Norberto in 2008.) Aside from killing Favali, witnesses said the brothers ate bits of the priest’s brains, an account that affirmed the penchant of their kind for macabre rituals they believe would give them power. Sources interviewed by this author in 1984 claimed that the Tadtad, for instance, held rites where members hit their bodies with machetes while mumbling foreign-sounding phrases. Before going to battle, the sources added, the Tadtad would drink a concoction and utter words believed to make them invincible. After Marcos’ ouster in 1986, the military somehow discarded the use of fanatical sects. They turned to organizing and arming anti-communist vigilante groups like the Alsa Masa of Davao


City and Nakasaka of Davao del Sur. The vigilantes, who did the dirty work like executing suspected rebels, gradually faded into oblivion particularly after the death of its foremost propagandist, broadcaster Jun Pala. The NPA disowned responsibility for Pala’s death. In the countryside, however, the use of paramilitary groups with no formal ties to the Armed Forces of the Philippines continues to this day. Groups like the Alamara in North Cotabato and Bukidnon and the Magahat/Bagani in Surigao del Sur have time and again sown terror among rural communities. In Surigao del Sur, their latest victims were three Lumad leaders who were killed for alleged links to the armed movement. Put on the defensive by the public uproar over these killings, the AFP has reportedly disowned the Bagani. Yet Surigao del Sur Governor Johnny Pimentel himself declared that the group “is a creation of the military.” He also blamed the same group for killing other people including barangay leaders. “They (military) created a monster they could no longer control,” he added. On paper, it is easy for the military to disown the Bagani and other paramilitaries for that matter; unlike the Cafgu, these groups don’t officially function as part of the security sector. Yet the way they have been acting without impunity tells a different story. For one, who gave them those expensive high-powered firearms? Surely, it could not be the NPA. ••• (MindaViews is the opinion section of MindaNews. H. Marcos C. Mordeno can be reached at

Think A Minute

Jhan Tiafau Hurst

for a weekend of fun. They don’t look unmotivated or lazy then! Maybe you had a schoolteacher who really made a certain subject interesting even exciting to you. They made you want to learn more, and they explained things so you could really understand. Then you ended up doing much better in that teacher’s class than you did

in the other ones. But then it’s not possible for our children’s teachers to know our own kids as well as we do. That’s why we their parents are their most important teachers. It is mainly our responsibility to motivate our children so they want to learn and do their best. And to do that, we must let our kids know that we believe in them. We watch them closely so we can help them know what they’re naturally talented and good at doing. Then we need to encourage them in that area so they can fully develop their own special abilities, whether it’s academics and school, sports, cooking, music, business, relating to people, or something else. You and I can motivate our children by always lov-

ing and accepting them without conditions, no matter what they do. Even when we don’t approve of everything they do, we must still accept them so they know they are always loved. And when our kids do something well, we should encourage them by letting them know how very pleased we are with them. Maybe you yourself never had someone who believed in you or motivated you to be your best in life. But today, you can ask Jesus Christ to take charge of your life. He will help you start seeing and using your own special abilities He’s given you. Jesus will also help you start encouraging and motivating others to be their best. Just Think a Minute.

Fair Play

“Lord, you always give me justice when I bring a case before you. So let me bring you this complaint: Why are the wicked so prosperous? Why are evil people so happy?” Jeremiah 12:1

Juvy Sarraga

Seeing good things happen to bad people gets disheartening. But God asks us to be patient. After all, He was patient for us to come to know and love Him. If we ask for justice among others we must also ask for justice for ourselves. We, too, may have been evil God didn’t intend for life to be fair. before we came to know God.

CCTV footage to help identify killers of journo By GERRY LEE GORIT and PJ TREMEDAL Correspondents

OZAMIZ City--Mayor Reynaldo “Aldong” Parojinog Jr. is optimistic that the local police will soon be able to resolve the death of a broadcaster with the presence of a new evidence. In an interview, Parojinog said police authorities were able to secure the close-circuit television (CCTV) footage that could lead to the identifications of the suspects. He described the killers of Cosme Maestrado as “maantigo” (skillful) gun for hire. Maestrado, a resident of purok 2, Barangay Gango, Ozamiz City, is a blocktimer of dxOC and the producer of TV program “Ratsada.” Four armed men shot Maestrado dead in front of a mall on August 27. He died while undergoing medical treatment at the Medina General Hospital in Ozamiz City. He succumbed to two bullet wounds. On one hand, Parojinog

said the suspects were not from Ozamiz City, not even from Misamis Occidental. As a result, the mayor ordered the “no helmet” policy in Ozamiz City, including the wearing of bonnet. Parojinog said checkpoints have already been set up at all entry and exit points of the city to prevent a repeat of the incidence. Suspects face raps Sr. Supt. Archival Diokno Macala, head of task force Ratsada, said the prime witness of the Maestrado killing has already filed robbery with intimidation against a certain Greggie Azcuna, one of the suspects, on Tuesday docketed under I.S. Number 11-INV-11-151-00204 at the Ozamiz City Prosecutors

Office. Macala said PO1 Clyde Francisco, the police officer who was in the vicinity and tried to respond to the crime, was disarmed and forced to lay on the ground. Francisco positively identified Azcuna in the cartographic sketch released by the Regional Crime Laboratory and matched with the Computer Facial Composite (CFC) by the Regional AntiCybercrime Unit of the Police Provincial Office, Region 10 (PRO-10) from an open source of the intelligence branch and the captured images from a CCTV of the stores surrounding the shopping mall where the crime was committed––and a CCTV footage from a bank where the get-away vehicle of the suspects collided with a motorcab. The suspects abandoned their Honda XRM with Plate Number 555KD and commandeered another Motorcycle at gunpoint.

DOH sends 15 units of “portalets” for evacuees in Surigao del Sur


ANDAG CITY, Surigao del Sur – Department of Health (DOH) Secretary Janet Garin has sent a team of high-ranking doctors and other aides and caused the shipment of 15 units of fabricated collapsible waterless toilet housing for emergency together with 15 pieces of septic vault, blue drums as well

for the use of the evacuees at the Surigao del Sur Sports Center, this city, on Thursday. Dr. Gloria Balboa, Health Emergency Management Bureau (HEMB) director of DOH accompanied by Dr. Cesar Cassion, DOH Caraga assistant regional director, immediately reported to Governor Johnny Pimentel and held an as-

sessment meeting at the latter’s office together with the local health chiefs here, Dr. Helen Caño, chief, DOH Provincial Health Team (PHT) office and Dr. Eric Montesclaros, OIC, Provincial Health Office (PHO). Everything concerning the “point of care” for the evacuees, now numbering at more than three 3,000, was discussed.

Pimentel said everything had to be under control, also instructing Dr. Montesclaros to verify reports of cases of sore eyes and chicken pox. Besides, the governor wanted to make sure the safety and well-being of 89 pregnant women, nine of them were said to be “expectant mothers” anytime soon.

The arrival of HEMB team was in response to SILG Mar Roxas’ call to Secretary Garin for more health care assistance when he saw firsthand the situation at Surigao del Sur Sports Center where thousands of evacuees had been

taking shelter. The DILG chief flew in to Tandag, being the keynote speaker during the opening program on Tuesday, for city’s 393rd Fiesta celebration. (Greg Tataro, Jr., Radyo ng Bayan-Tandag/ PIA-Surigao del Sur)

2,700 evacuees in SurSur receive aid MANILA – Around 2,700 people fled their homes in Surigao del Sur, Eastern Mindanao, in the aftermath of armed violence last week. To support them, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) provided relief items on September 8. The displaced families, mostly from Lianga and San Miguel municipalities, took shelter at the provincial sports centre in Tandag City, where they are finding it difficult to meet their basic needs, having had to leave everything behind. “We abandoned our home out of fear,” said 39-year-old Lita Tejero, a mother of eight, from San Agustin municipality. “Life at the evacuation centre is hard. We rely on aid. The unpredictable weather is also a concern,” she added. Working closely together, the ICRC and the PRC distributed household items, such as jerrycans, blankets and sleeping mats, and hygiene kits to ease the plight of evacuees. The PRC has also set up a soup kitchen, serving hot meals to evacuees once a day. “Armed violence often results in the displacement of civilians, including women and children.

Malaysian plane to unload Aboitiz coal plant equipment By Bong S. Sarmiento of MindaNews

GENERAL Santos City--It was not an emergency landing nor a foreign plane’s commercial maiden voyage in this thriving port city,

the “Tuna Capital of the Philippines.” A Malaysia Airlines plane landed at the General Santos City international airport on Wednesday to bring in equipment for a new coal-fired power plant in the

Davao region, two sources confirmed on Friday. The Malaysian airplane left the city noontime Thursday after it was emptied of its cargoes, Rudy Boborol, a heavy equipment operator See plane, page A11

POPE Francis’ recent encyclical, Laudato Si’, enjoins all of us to care for our common home, the earth. More directly, we are also challenged to care for our common home, the city of Cagayan de Oro. During fiesta time, we celebrate the gift of family, renew friendships, and strengthen the bonds of community. During the time of Typhoon Sendong, affecting the entire city, we showed how we could all work together to help dislocated families who lost their houses and loved ones. A home is not only a house where a family lives; a home is built by the love that is shared by all members of the family. So too with our community; our “City of Golden Friendship” is built by the spirit of solidarity and concern for the common good. It is in this light that we can look at three challenges confronting our “common home” mentioned in Pope Francis’ encyclical. Lately, a People’s Council of concerned citizens, including residents of affected subdivisions, have voiced their concerns on the problem of pollution coming from the city’s basurahan. The garbage dumpsite poses an immediate threat to the health of nearby housing areas. There has been a persistent clamor for a sanitary land fill and for solid waste management practices. The goals of zero waste can be achieved through reducing, recycling, and reusing waste materials. Last week, together with several ministry workers of the Archdiocese, I visited the J.R. Borja City Hospital upon invitation by its administrator, Dr. Ramon M. Nery. We were glad to see the marked improvements not only in the physical structures, but more so in the hospital management’s policies of accommodating the needs of all indigent families. However, we were told that the foul odor from the basurahan could be felt in the afternoons whenever the wind direction changes towards the hospital. Clearly, the city’s garbage issue can be solved if the city’s executive and legislative officials can work together and go beyond partisan politics for the sake of the common good. But it is also a challenge for all of us, to do our part in making sure that our surroundings are clean and hospitable.

A second challenge mentioned in Pope Francis’ encyclical is the issue of water. There are a number of housing areas, including Typhoon Sendong relocation sites, that still do not have regular access to clean drinking water. And yet, as Pope Francis remarks, “access to safe drinkable water is a basic and universal human right, since it is a condition for the exercise of other human rights.” (LS, 30) Water scarcity may be a constant problem in some areas of the city. On the other hand, too much water in times of heavy rains can severely threaten the city, as what happened during Typhoon Sendong. Hence there is the call for watershed protection which extends to the upland area of north-western Bukidnon. Since 2010, we have formed a Cagayan de Oro River Basin Management Council (CDORBMC), of which I am co-chair together with the regional directors of DENR and DILG and the city mayor. As a multi-sectoral group involving government agencies, LGUs, academe, business, NGOs, and church communities, the Council has undertaken the tasks of rehabilitation of watershed areas, mobilization of local government units, community development, and resource management. The ongoing fluvial procession as we celebrate this Mass is not only a way of honoring our patron, San Agustin, and his mother, Sta. Monica, but also our Birhen sa Kota sa Cagayan de Oro (Our Lady of the Fort of Cagayan de Oro). Her protective image on the river should remind us that she is also our Birhen sa Kinaiyahan (Our Lady See care, page A11

By HEMEDINA R. JAMITO, Teacher I East City Central School, Lapasan, Cagayan de Oro City

I teach to provide understanding to students. Younger people tend to be in the stage of seeing things and knowing about them. What they need is to gain understanding about these things. Teaching requires more of being a teacher. Besides of being a teacher, I should also be a second parent and a friend. It is true that not all of my students are in good hands. Most of

them perhaps are going through something tough in their lives. These obstacles might be too big for their age. Thus, I should be there to comfort them and explain why things went that way. I should calm them and normalize their view about this world. It is my responsibility to take them home when they are lost. Teaching is about transforming lives and it is the reason why I love this profession.

Education is big help in living life By CHARITO R. JARAULA, Teacher III East City Central School, Lapasan, Cagayan de Oro City

Education should be attained by each child in this world because it is his right to learn. Through learning, he will be able to know the things that surround him. The world is very wide and inside it, he will see several things and a number of matters that will cause confusion. Education will be a big help in unraveling the secrets of this world where a child lives in. He will further know about the environment and all the people

he interacts with which is essential for his growth. It is also through Education that he will learn to dream. This dream will make him move and think in every day of his life. He will work hard and face all struggles and challenges for this dream. He will learn to stand up on every downfall and go through each rough time to achieve that goal. This then will make him to be person knowledgeable of life. Education will also make a child wiser than each yes-

terday he passed through. He will be trained to make choices and plans. Moreover, he will know how to make Plan A, B, C and so on. He can achieve better decisions and come up with most strategic ways to solve a certain problem. Education is a big contribution in living life. There are several reasons why educating young people is essential. Above all this, knowledge enhances him as a person, enables him to do more things and classifies his greater purpose in living.


The Department of Education is now moving towards the implementation of the Indigenous Peoples Education (IPED). Advocacy programs were conducted to make all concerns aware of what is going on for IP education as mandated by DepED Order No. 62, s. 2011. To make the program more concrete and valid, the Division Technical Working Group (TWG) headed by Mrs. Elena M. Borcillo, CESO V, Schools Division Superintendent and Dr. Reynaldo E. Manuel Jr., CESE, Assistant Schools

Division Superintendent together with the tribal chieftains sat down in crafting the framework to serve as basis for the implementation of the program. The framework has been validated to the community on August 7, 2015, at Barangay Dansolihon with representatives coming from the different tribal communities in the City of Cagayan de Oro in attendance. The DepEd Division of Cagayan de Oro City in its quest for the implementation of the Indigenous Peoples Education IPED

DEFORESTATION By Remedios S. Galacio Benoni Elementary School

Deforestation is when over cutting and over clearance of the forest happens. This is cause by Mother Nature or human activities. This problem can cause death through landslides and destroys the biodiversity of the ecosystem. Deforestation is the result of greediness by the people; illegal log-

ging and kaingin are part of it. Permanent destruction of forest makes the life of individual difficult since it creates negative impact to nature and to the people. Everyone must help hand in hand in planting trees that will protect the future from storm damages and will provide a habitat for wild life.

Gurong Mapagmahal Ni Remedios S. Galacio Benoni Elementary School

Ikaw ang ilaw nang bayan Nagtitiis sa paghubog nang murang isipan sa mga kabataan Handang iaalay ang buhay hanggang sa pagtanda Paglilingkod sa bayang mahal.

Mga kabataan ang payo nang

guro at magulang ay mga gintong aral Pakinggan ninyo upang ang landas ay hindi maliligaw. Magandang kinabukasan inyong mararatnan. Batang masunurin mahal ka nang taong bayan.

Teaching: Transforming Lives Teaching is more than just a profession. It is a mission of inspiring people to do some more about their life. As a teacher, it makes me realize that it is a very good thing to teach. Teaching is not just about me, but mostly about my students. I teach not to gain something, but for them to gain learnings that would serve as their guide in dealing the mazes of living.

Program is ably supported by the good mayor of the City of Cagayan de Oro Mayor Oscar S. Moreno. The good mayor allocated an amount out from the Special Education Fund (SEF) around P 850,000.00 for the construction of a “Tulugan” a building that would serves as repository of the indigenous materials. The “Tulugan” would also serve as a meeting place for any IPED activities that will be conducted alongside with its implementation. The construction is now going on in Lumbia Central School.

Victory belongs only to the most persevering Spec ial G o s pe l of the day (September14, 2015-Monday) Matthew 10:17-22-But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye

shall speak. And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against [their] parents, and cause them to be put to “death.”And ye shall be hated of all [men] for my name’s sake: but he that “endured” to the end shall be saved: This gospel reminds us about the consequences in following God and working in His vineyard. In Matthew 5:10-12-Blessed [are] they which are persecuted for

righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when [men] shall revile you, and persecute [you], and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great [is] your reward in heaven. This is the irony in life, to die for the Lord. The matured attitude is willing to suffer for the sake of what he believed. He will do everything to express his conviction in life. He is willing to undergo

the consequences of what he is doing. Sometimes in life we are doing the right things but ended in pains and misfortunes. Take note; in human understanding you are a loser but in God you are winner. If ever you are serving God; have a victor mentality instead of having a victim mentality. You will be opposed and persecuted but that is not the end of everything because there is another life prepared for you in eternity. Your suffer-

CONSERVATION OF NATURAL RESOURCES By Remedios S. Galacio Benoni Elementary School

Protecting the environment can be obtained by simply throwing garbage properly. This act will help water and land free contaminated things. Simply managing day to day living activity such as proper consumption of water and electricity is a major factor in conserving natural resources. Proper control on the use of fresh water can also help in conservation since it will minimize the loss thus allowing the people to be free from scarcity in water.

‘Rufus’ to run for City Mayor By CRIS DIAZ, Executive Editor

Rep. Rufus B. Rodriguez, Second District of Cagayan De Oro, has declared his running for the mayoral post in 2016 emphasizing on “unity” as his campaign slogan.

Rodriguez, accompanied by wife and daughter, made the announcement Sunday during a radio program in Cagayan De Oro City. Rodriguez would be running under the Centrist Democratic Party (CDP), a

cutting, destruction, damaging or injuring of naturally grown or planted trees of any kind, flowering or ornamental plants and shrubs, or plants of scenic, aesthetic and ecological values, located along public roads, plazas or parks, school premises or in any other public ground or place, or on the banks of rivers or creeks, or along roads in land subdivisions or areas for the common use of owners of the lots. Councilors Alden Bacal, Adrian Barba and Ramon Tabor, authors of the ordinances, explained that it is imperative to enact the law to boost the city’s clean and green campaign. The councilors cited Section 458 of the Local Government Code, which empowers local government units to enact measures to protect the environment and impose appropriate penalties for acts, which endanger the environment so as to enhance the right of the people to a balanced ecology. According to the authors, the existing forest cover of the city is already below the normal level to make for a balanced ecology. The condition is reportedly compounded by the indiscriminate cutting of trees which are not found in forest areas such as river banks, along roads or inside subdivisions. Pursuant to the ordinance, cutting of trees may only be allowed under some conditions and provided that a permit from the city mayor or his authorized representative shall be secured. Section 5 of the ordinance imposes a fine of P500 and/or imprisonment of not more than 15 days for the first offense; P1,000 and fine and/or imprisonment of 15 to 30 days for the second offense and imprisonment of 31 to 60 days for the third and subsequent offenses. It provides that if the offender is a corporation, partnership or association, the penalty shall be imposed upon the officer or officers responsible for the offense. The ordinance shall take effect after 15 days following its publication in a newspaper of general circulation. It was reviewed and favorably endorsed by the committees on environment and natural resources and on laws and rules chaired by Councilors Zaldy Ocon and Ramon Tabor, respectively. The Power

this type of real estate property provides convenient, smartly-designed and cost-efficient homes. “Being smartly-designed, cost-efficient and convenient does not always mean they are consciously made to promote healthy, sustainable and green living,” Lanete said. Lanete said green living means the efficient use of natural resources, eco-friendly construction materials and maximizing negative impact of the development to nature. Lanete cited the 1987 Constitution, which mandates the State to protect and advance the right of the people to a balanced and healthful ecology in accord with rhythm and harmony of nature. Under the measure, RA 4726 is amended to include a provision for a survey plan and diagrammatic plan of the green spaces in the project, in sufficient detail to identify the space, its relative location and approximate dimensions which shall not be less than 25% of the total land area of the condominium project. Lanete said the bill provides a fine of P1 million to owner or developer of condominium projects who neglect or fail to establish and maintain green spaces in their projects.

The heavy equipment unloaded from the plane were put on waiting trucks, he said, adding this was the first time he saw a Malaysian plane at the General Santos airport, with someone even branding it the “mysterious Malaysian Airlines plane in GenSan.” It turned out the heavy equipment were bound for the 300-megawatt (MW) coal plant of Therma South, Inc (TSI), a whollyowned subsidiary of Aboitiz Power Corp, located in Davao City. Wilfredo Rodolfo III, Aboitiz Power corporate communications manager, confirmed that they hired Malaysia Airlines to bring in the equipment. “In order to expedite the commissioning of the second unit of Therma South’s 300-MW power plant project, we decided to charter a Boeing 747 of Malaysian Airlines to quickly fly in the necessary part and equipment,” he said in a statement. Since the unloading equipment of the General Santos City airport is more ready and complete, we decided to bring in the equipment via General Santos than the Davao City airport to fast track the delivery, he added. Davao and General Santos cities are less than three hours apart by land travel.

He said that the CDP would hold a convention to nominate and approve the possible running mate and the names of the other candidate that would complete the CDP ticket in Cagayan De Oro City in 2016. Rodriguez, who heads

the CDP, said that he is running for mayor in order to continue the development efforts that he has started for the Cagayanons. Elected Congressman in the city’s second congressional district in 2007, Rodriguez would end his term in Congress in 2016 after completing a threeyear term with a tenure of three years every term or after serving in Congress

for nine consecutive years. As a congressman, Rodriguez brought in various projects worth billions of pesos (during the term of Aquino Rodriguez brought infrastructure projects amounting of about Php 8 billion), setting a record as the city’s congressman who brought in as many projects compared to any elected congressman before him. During his declaration,

Rodolfo said the firm chartered Malaysia Airlines “to bring the equipment to expedite the replacement of parts and get the power plant into service so it can help alleviate the Mindanao power crisis.” Unit 1 of TSI with 150 MW of capacity is already completing its testing and commissioning, he said, adding that Unit 2 (another 150 MW) needed replacement parts and should be online by early 2016.

Archival Macala said in a press conference. According to the police, Jojo was the successor of the late Diosdado Alferez, who died of sickness. The police said the Alferez Criminal Gang started in 2010 in Tangub City with 26 armed members.

the Environment). Here again, all of us are asked to do our share in protecting and conserving the environment by such practices as tree-growing, proper waste management, etc. Pope Francis’ encyclical stresses that environmental ecology is closely linked to an “ecology of man.” Our relationship to the environment stems from our relationship to one another. This then is the third challenge we face: the peace and dis-order in our society. Over the past two weeks, in our city, we heard about the senseless killings of two young persons – 14year old Stacey Villar on August 13th, and 9-year old Cairistian “CJ” Balguin on August 21st. These two innocent persons were killed by perpetrators who were allegedly high on drugs. The problem of drug-trafficking is another form of pervasive pollution that threatens the well-being of our residents, whether in guarded subdivisions or in slum areas. The majority of city jail inmates, we are told, are there for crimes related ultimately to drug addiction. Once more, we appeal not only to law-enforcing authorities but to all of us to be vigilant in detecting and reporting instances of drug trafficking. On a larger scale, the peace process in Mindanao needs our understanding of its historical context and a re-examination of our biases and prejudices. Notwithstanding several changes being introduced in Congress to the draft Bangsamoro Basic Law, ultimately the crafting of a meaningful BBL accepted by both sides still offers the best chances of winning a just and lasting peace for Mindanao. We are all stakeholders in this process. Pope Francis points out the need for an Integral Ecology – that encompasses Environmental and

Rodriguez called on the Cagayanons to unite behind the CDP. “Let us do away with politicking, let us unite for the sake of progress and development,” he said. He said that his administration would focus on resolving various social issues involving drugs and criminalities that have besmirched the image of Cagayan De Oro as a trading hub in Northern Mindanao.

Social Ecology. Our three concerns over Pollution, Water, and Peace bring out this interconnectedness of all living creatures with Mother Earth. Highlighting this interconnectedness and as a response to Laudato Si’, the Archdiocese of Cagayan de Oro is launching a Season of Creation, starting this August 28 until October 7, 2015, the Feast of our Birhen sa Kota – Our Lady of the Rosary. The six Sundays of this season will focus on various themes related to our care of the environment and our human society. May our City of Man follow closely the vision of St. Augustine’s City of God.

Unlike the patrol cars, a troop carrier vehicle is designed for maneuvering of police personnel in the field, he said. He said that Police Director General Ricardo C. Marquez turned over the troop carrier vehicles to the police regional command last Saturday. During the turnover ceremony, Marquez emphasized the presence of the police personnel in the community as one of the factors to preempt the criminals from committing criminal acts.

BANG FOR THE BUCK – KYMCO Agility RS 125 Photos by Kit Elton Pilla

KYMCO has somewhat achieved a level of mastery in the science of making scooters. The Taiwanese firm has become a formidable contender in the international scooter market through the popularity of what are known as their “global products”. Such are scooter models that are sold in different parts of the world. One of which is the KYMCO Agility RS 125. At P65,900, the Agility RS 125 is currently the most affordable scooter in KYMCO Philippines’ stable. Yet, do not be easily put-off by the fact because this capable commuter was designed with emphasis on value for money. Also, the exact same model is sold in Europe and North America, markets that have more astringent requirements than our own. There must be something good about this scoot. The Agility is propelled by a forced-air cooled 124.9 cc mill which produces 6.9 kw of power at 7500 rpm and 9.1 nm of torque at 6500 rpm. With the Agility’s simple design, weight is kept to a minimum

at 105 kilograms. Hence, the easy handling and zippy performance. The Continuously Variable Transmission also helps keep you at the ideal rev range to achieve maximum fuel efficiency. KYMCO claims 75 miles to a gallon or 26.55 kilometer to a liter for the Agility. The 12-inch wheels enhances the Agility’s maneuverability. In addition, the meaty 120/70 (front) and 130/70 (rear) rubbers get you significantly more grip compared to the narrow 14-inch tires on most ASEAN scooters. A 5-way

adjustable rear shock help ensure a smooth ride. Like most Taiwanese scooters, it has a generous under seat compartment that can store a regular open face helmet or even a small full face lid. Yet, the most endearing feature of the Agility has to be its seat configuration. The rear saddle folds up to function as a back rest for the rider and at the same time, it frees up more cargo space at back where you can tie-down a box or a large bag. This scoot seems to be proving itself to be functional as it is nimble. Maybe they should rename it as the Utility. If you are in the market for a perky and functional commuter with a price tag that will not break the bank, the Agility RS 125 is worth looking into.

Toyota’s popular MPV gets a facelift and an engine upgrade that promises more power and improved fuel efficiency. The new Avanza still comes with either a 1.5-liter Dual VVT-I engine which has an output of 103 hp@6000rpm and torque of 136 Nm@1600, and a 1.3-liter
