Thief returns loot but minus P300,000

COTABATO City––Three days after the P1.6 million taken by lone holdupper, who mysteriously sneaked inside a van, from the Maguindanao Electric Cooperative (Magelco) cashier in Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao has been returned, minus PHP300,000, though. Sr. Supt. Lindsy Sinsuat, DOS town police chief, told dxMS-Radyo Bida, that Magelco general manager Sultan Maongco admitted one of the victims connived with the lone suspect but decided to return the loot. Sinsuat said Basit Beni-

to, the firm’s security guard and the one who escorted cashier Hanna Malang, admitted to the Magelco manager and returned the P1.3 million cash. “The manager is still negotiating with the holdupper for the return of remaining P300,000,” Sinsuat said, adding Benito personally handed over the money to Maongco. Malang, Benito and Toyota D4D van driver Gerome Romuar, were heading to Magelco main office in Barangay Capiton, DOS, when a masked man

DAVAO City -- Exhibitors of Davao Agri Trade Expo (DATE) earned a total of P613.170 million in sales from 2010 to 2014. Records from the Davao City Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCCII) revealed that the highest revenue was in 2012 at P233.439 million in sales from livestock, poultry, and agricultural produce. It was also in 2012 the group first held the event, touted as the biggest agribusiness expo in Mindanao, at the 7,835-square meter and 5,000-seater SMX Convention Center Davao at the SM Lanang Premier. The chamber is also eyeing to surpass the income generated three years ago, bringing the target to P300 million this year.

The 17th DATE will be held on September 25 to 27, 2015 at the SMX Convention Center with 170 booths displaying various agricultural products and technology from Davao Region. Organizers are coming up with same topic as 2012 in preparation for the Asean Economic Community (AEC), which will take effect by end of this year. “When we say AEC, we become a single market, meaning there’s zero tariff among member nations,” Wilfredo Teves, DCCCII vice president for agricul-


ture, said. He added local exporters must take advantage of greater opportunities offered by AEC. He noted that among the livestock industry players only a few have made it to the global market. “These are the things that the government and the private sector must work on. Our plan is to how to be able to bring the products out,” he said. Teves cited a bigger opportunity waiting for the poultry industry in the Asean. “Kaysa padad-an tag karne dire, better kung kita ang magpadala sa atong produkto (Instead of us importing meat, it would be better if we export our

products,” he said. He told the local hog and poultry raisers to take advantage of being free from dreaded diseases such as bird flu and foot-andmouth diseases that have

been plaguing some Asean neighbors. He said six trade attachés from Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Japan, Dubai, and Thailand will also participate in the three-day expo

to discuss how products of each of these countries can penetrate the market. “The culture of each market is different,” Teves said. (Antonio L. Colina IV/MindaNews)

Bureau of Customs to donate ‘used clothing’ to fire victims By CRIS DIAZ, Executive Editor

CAGAYAN de Oro City -- The Bureau of Customs here is willing to donate a 40-footer van filled with “used clothing” to the fire victims of Opol in Misamis Oriental, a customs official said Wednesday. Joseph Roswald Page, legal division here, said that head of the customs district all it needs is a resolution

from the municipal town of Opol before the bureau could possible release the seized “used clothing.” He said the resolution should be addressed to the Commissioner of the Bureau of Customs in Manila. Page said that the lo-

cal Bureau of Customs would favorably endorse the resolution so that one of the seized container vans of “used clothing” could be distributed to the fire victims. The Bureau of Customs here seized an illegal shipment of 21 units of

40-footer container vans filled with “used clothing” valued at Php 52 million in July this year. Page said the local Bureau of Customs offered the seized “used clothing” in response to a call by the provincial government of Misamis Oriental and the

municipal town of Opol for “used clothing” for the town’s fire victims. A fire of unknown origin razed 153 houses in Luyong Bonbon, a fishing village, in the coastal town of Opol Tuesday evening leaving about 360 people homeless.

CAGAYAN de Oro City -- Provincial Governor Yevgeny Vincente Emano of Misamis Oriental has mobilized key officials in the province to ensure that the delivery of the assistance to about 360 fire victims in Opol continues 24/7.

man, the graft court headed by Aquino’s appointee, is simply employing a “reverse psychology” to seal the issue, the people are aware of this traditional powerplay strategy. It means, that the Ombudsman indicted Aquino and Abad in order for the graft court to dismiss the graft cases and throw the issue to oblivion. If the Ombudsman would accede to the clamor of the people to convict Aquino and Abad of graft and corruption, the implementation of the decision would depend on the result of the 2016 elections. In other words, the Ombudsman would archive the graft case

We already took a glimpse of the possible scenario, the players and the political line up in Cagayan De Oro City. While our opinions were presumptive, we have the gut feelings that some of those ideas might turn out to be true. Now, it is time to move to the province of Misamis Oriental. Anyway, we wrote about the seemingly unfortunate destiny of the administration’s Liberal Party in the 2016 presidential and local elections. The indictment of President Benigno S. Aquino III and Budget Secretary Florencio “Butch” Abad with the graft court involving the illegal disbursement of the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) and the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) only predestined the sad future of the administration political party. Anyway, the presumption of a national political debacle involving the administration candidates would certainly trickle down to the local candidates who align with the LP political party. We call it the “Domino effect.” Whether the Ombuds-

and would wait for the right timing to render a decision – whether favorable or not. Thus, the people should not be cynical about the graft case against Aquino and his “bagman” at this time. Let us focus on the candidates – both in the national and local arena – in order to discern on electing the right candidates. How does the graft case against Aquino-Abad affected the local political atmosphere? For ordinary voters, the case has no bearings at all. However, for the students of politics, the graft cases against Aquino and Abad, have a debilitating effect in the local political arena. Matter of fact, the local LP candidates are relatively silent this day. Perhaps, no candidate would want to be identified with the LP and the Aquino administration anymore. In the 2013 presidential and local elections, almost every would-be-candidate wants to align and be identified with the Aquino-lead LP. This time, however, nobody is telling everybody that they would want to be with the LP political party.

Well, after six years, the people gained nothing of the incumbent administration, but a file of graft and corruption cases that seemed to be kept under wrapped. The issue of graft and corruption is not only prevalent in the national level. The issue of graft and corruption among elected public officials who align with the incumbent administration appeared to be worse and brazen than ever. The condition is exacerbated with the possible connivance of the government agencies tasked to investigate cases of graft involving local public officials. Well, the only license of corrupt public officials is their alliance with the Liberal Party. With this alliance, the corrupt public officials at the local level also seemed to get away with dozens of cases of alleged graft and corruption. Who is running under the LP ticket in Misamis Oriental? It would be very interesting topic in the coming days. -0- Send comments/reactions:

The message one gets from this is that, the INC evidently felt thoroughly grieved by De Lima, and it is not really difficult to discern that this grief must have been caused by a clear perception that De Lima was not simply doing her job in the case against the INC leaders, but was doing them in, as it were, in maneuvering against them. People can say the INC was unlawfully trying to exert pressure to compel De Lima to back down in the serious illegal detention case against its leaders. I guess they are entitled to say so, but, a more prudent appreciation of things will show that what the INC really wanted was that, the illicit maneuvers against its leaders be stopped right away. -oooPLEASE LISTEN: “Ang Tanging Daan” (The Sole Way), a Bible study and prayer session on radio, airs Mondays to Fridays, 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., at DWAD 1098 kHz on the AM band.

illegal detention which an expelled INC member filed against INC leaders? -oooW HAT I NC R E A L LY WANTED: The undeniable fact is that the INC threw its support behind the candidacy of President Aquino in 2010, and therefore helped him to clinch the presidency. Surely, it would have been very easy for the INC to have simply worked behind the scenes, as it were, and in utmost secrecy, away from the prying eyes of anyone, to have, at the very least, asked Aquino to ensure a fair treatment by De Lima of the illegal detention case. But the INC chose to be publicly combative about this matter, involving millions of its members, in various key cities yet of the country.

5 lumad leaders, farmers killed by ‘tribal gunmen’ By CHRIS V. PANGANIBAN Regional Editor-Caraga

SAN Francisco, Agusan del Sur––Three leaders of a lumad school and a farmers’ group in a far-flung indigenous community in Surigao del Sur were killed, reportedly perpetrated by paramilitary tribal warriors a few days after two other farmers were killed in neighboring hinterland

village. The hostilities in the two villages located in the abandoned logging concession areas decades back triggered mass evacuation of close to 500 lumad residents as reports said the gunmen said to anti-communist “Bagani” warriors went on a rampage to get back to villagers they suspected of supporting the New Peoples Army rebels.

In Bislig City

A report from Sister Stella Matutina, chair of Sisters Association in Mindanao and secretary general of rights group Panalipdan! Mindanao, said the residents were forced to evacuate in Siagao Village in San Miguel town after the gunmen killed two brothers Crisanto and Ellie Tabogol inside their home on August 28. Three other victims,

Emerito Samarca, executive director of Alternative Learning Center for Agricultural and Livelihood Development (ALCADEV), Dionel Campos, chairperson of farmers group Malahutayong Pakigbisog Alang sa Sumusunod (Mapasu) and his cousin Bello Sinzo , were separately killed yesterday in neighboring remote village in Diatagon.

Eliza Panganiban, secretary general of human rights group Karapatan Caraga, said the suspects gunned down Campos and Sinzo as residents were roused from sleep and were herded by the militiamen at the center of the community. Samarca’s dead body was later found inside the classroom of ALCADEV with a rope tied around the neck and sustaining stab wounds. The incident took place two days after ALCADEV celebrated its foundation day when the lumad militiamen and soldiers of the 36th Infantry Battalion reportedly occupied the school’s function hall and areas within the school grounds. “ The y (militiamen)

threatened to massacre the lumad community if they did not heed from orders for them to leave their homes and evacuate,” Panganiban said. Karapatan Caraga reported that the same suspects burned the cooperative office of Mapasu on Sunday while indiscriminately firing around the school premises. “We strongly condemn and demand justice for the killing of Samarca, Campos and Sinzo,” Panganiban said. As they were preparing to leave that afternoon, Samarca was detained at the ALCADEV grounds by some members of the lumad militiamen. That was the last time that he was seen See gunmen, page A11

Duterte receives pointers from FVR on how to run a presidential campaign; how to govern the country Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte had told former President Fidel V. Ramos that he is veering towards a decision to run for president in 2016, but he has yet to convince his family regarding his plan for higher office. Duterte revealed this to Ramos during a meeting Monday at the latter’s office at the Urban Bank Building in Makati City. Upon hearing the certainty of him running for the highest post of the land, Ramos gave Duterte pointers on how to conduct himself in the campaign trail and how to govern the country if he becomes the 16th president of the Republic. “FVR had only kind words for Mayor Duterte

and his pointers and advice are like those coming from a concerned father to a dutiful son who has set his eyes on a noble crusade,” said one of those who attended the Aug. 31 meeting. On Saturday, Duterte attended a get-together of his friends and supporters organized by the “Champions of Rody Duterte” (CORD) held at the RJ Bistro, Dusit Hotel in Makati City. In an impromptu speech, Duterte said that if he runs and become president, he will work hard so that the opportunities open to the rich will likewise be provided to the poor. “Why not give to the poor, the opportunities given to the rich just because they have money?,” he said.

Sustainable livelihood program brings hope, light to Manobos in AgSur town

The concept of adaptive learning By ZIETA ANTING TEMPLANZA Secondary School Teacher I Tabid National High School District 10, Division of Ozamiz City

ADAPTIVE learning is an educational method which uses computers as interactive teaching devices and to orchestrate the allocation of human and mediated resources according to the unique needs of each learner. Computers adapt the presentation of educational materials according to students’ learning needs as indicated by their responses to questions, tasks and experiences. The technology encompasses aspects derived from various fields of study including computer science, education, psychology and brain science.

Adaptive learning has been partially driven by a realization that tailored learning cannot be achieved on a large scale using traditional, non-adaptive approaches. Adaptive learning systems endeavor to transform the learner from passive receptor of information to collaborator in the educational process. Adaptive learning systems’ primary application is in education. They have been designed as desktop computer applications, web applications and now being introduced into overall curricula.

Who would expect to see a trace of technological innovation in a very isolated place? A group of Manobos in an isolated place called Sitio Bantolinao in Sibagat, Agusan del Sur claims that positive change can happen. In January 2012, 25 partner-beneficiaries of Pantawid Pamilya Pamilyang Pilipino Program in Bantolinao received Php10,000 each through the Sustainable Livelihood Program’s

(SLP’s) Self-Employment As s i s t a n c e - K au n l a r a n (SEA-K). Eager to gain a stable income, the group agreed to fuse their grants and ventured into General Merchandise. Evelyn “Inday” Inocente, SKA chairman and a Pantawid Pamilya parent leader, shares her extreme happiness after receiving the grants. “Dako kaayo among pasalamat sa tabang gikan sa SLP tungod niini naay maayong kabag-ohan sa among kinabuhi (We are very grateful for SLP’s grant. It brought change to our lives),” says Inday. “Agig pagbalik sa tabang By ROSELLER AYING LIBRES sa gobyerno, naningkamot Secondary School Teacher I kami na naay panginabuhi Tabid National High School, District 10 Division of Ozamiz City na matukod alang sa kaayuhan sa tanan (In return is proven by passing the THERE are many to the government’s help, kinds of teachers in the licensure exam for teachwe did our best to create a world.

New caravan eyes youth as climate heroes By Catherine J. Teves

A CLIMATE advocate is urging the country’s youth to increasingly join the fight against climate change, optimistic this sector can help promote discussions and community action on the problem and raise clamor for a new climate agreement in Paris this December. “We want our youth to be climate heroes,” the Climate Reality Project (CRP) Philippine manager Rodne Galicha said Tuesday (September 1) on the side of the Nationwide Climate Caravan’s launch in Metro Manila. Dubbed ‘Bakit, Bakit Hindi?: The Filipino Youth on the Road to Paris,’ the caravan targets promoting

social media as medium for helping people 35 years old and younger help promote action on climate change, including sealing of the target Paris agreement on lowering climate change-driving greenhouse gas emissions from human activities. Galicha sees potential in the youth as mover of the campaign against climate change. Aside from comprising a significant part of the Philippine population, he said the country’s youth are energetic and capable of reaching out and spreading the climate advocacy to thousands through social media. He also said the youth will bear the brunt of climate change unless this problem is addressed accordingly. According to experts, the Philippines is among

countries most at risk for climate change’s impacts. Those impacts are sea level and temperature rise as well as increasing onslaught of extreme weather events, they warned. Among such events was the November 2013 onslaught of typhoon ‘Yolanda’ (international name ‘Haiyan’) in Central Philippines. ‘Yolanda’ left over 6,000 people dead and nearly destroyed everything in its path. Experts already cited ‘Yolanda’ as among the strongest tropical cyclones in recorded history. Galicha said the Philippines became a significant climate advocate because of ‘Yolanda.’ “With the youth’s help, we can further step up such advocacy and generate more petitions for a climate agreement to be finally sealed in

Paris this year,” he said. Nobel Laureate and former US Vice President Al Gore founded CRP in 2006 to help advance discussions on climate change and turn climate awareness into action. Throughout the Nationwide Climate Caravan, the youth will have the opportunity to ask authorities questions on climate change and action for addressing this problem. Videos covering such questions will be uploaded in social media sites to stimulate discussions on such matters. The caravan is the local counterpart of the Road to Paris Campaign. Such campaign is a global initiative CRP mounted earlier to help further raise international clamor for a new climate agreement. (PNA)

Davao Catholics learn organic farming for World Day of Prayer for Creation DAVAO City--In response to the call of Pope Francis to care for the environment, Catholics here in Davao Region have resorted to organic farming and tree planting as their contribution to this worldwide celebration. With Pope Francis’ declaration of Sept. 1 as World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, the Archdiocesan Social Action Center of Davao (ASAC) organized a series of trainings for lay leaders and members to learn about the benefits of organic farming.

ASAC Coordinator Sr. Ma. Marissa Arado, TDM said ASAC partnered with different agencies, which specialize in organic farming, so they can share their expertise to lay leaders and members who will also pass on their learnings to others.

Teacher enthusiasm By ROSELLER AYING LIBRES Secondary School Teacher I Tabid National High School, District 10 Division of Ozamiz City

SINCE teachers can affect how students perceive the lessons they were imparted on a particular session or day, it has been found that teachers who showed enthusiasm towards the course materials can affect a positive learning experience. For example, if you are teaching history, then you must also be happy knowing about the beautiful adventures that our ancestors have undergone. Students – intelligence as they are – can easily tell whether the teacher knows the subject matter from the

heart or is simply parroting the lessons. On teacher/course evaluations, it was found that teachers who have a positive disposition towards the course content tend to transfer their passion to receptive students. These teachers do not teach by rote but attempt to find new invigoration for the course materials on a daily basis. And that must be a requirement before any college accepts an enrollee for Education. He/ she must have a passion and patience to teach kids.

rance through exposure to radio and television. Children can now easily study and make their assignments at night. They have acquired more learnings through the educational shows they have watched on TV. “Mas maganahan nako mag-study kay naa nay suga sa balay (I am more eager to study because we already have light at home),” one of the daughters in Bantolinao shares with a sweet smile on her face. To ensure the sustainability of the power supply, the Bantolinao waterfalls and the power generator are maintained by the community members - both male and female. Furthermore, the association has also ventured into micro-lending, offering loans that have aided both the members and the non-members especially

during emergencies. With their present economic status, they have gained confidence in dealing with people out of their context and even go to different places without fear of intimidation. “Tungod sa tabang sa SLP ug sa among pagpaningkamot makaingon dyud ko na kaya ang kabag-uhan (With SLP’s help and our

Fostering responsible citizenship through education By ZIETA ANTING TEMPLANZA Secondary School Teacher I Tabid National High School District 10, Division of Ozamiz City

EDUCATION from K-12 up to college or a vocational degree or even stopping at senior high is more than just an entry to the job market. For it has the power to shape a sustainable future and better world. Education policies should promote peace, mutual respect and environment care. That is what is called as owning education at a teacher’s level. It means teaching beyond chemistry or physics. Each lesson that the

student has learned must have an application in his or her adult life. We must think outside of the box as what our mentors constantly say. Gone are the days when schools are simply preparing students to pass exams, proceed to the next level and graduate into the workplace. We now face the much greater challenge of raising global citizens. Promoting respect and responsibility across cultures, countries and regions must be at the center of education.

Soldiers of the 36th IB and Army’s Special Forces, who openly stayed in Km.9, are conducting their usual patrols but no other actions are being taken as of this time. “This is a clear indication of collusion between the AFP and the armed Magahat-Bagani Forces.”, Panganiban said. “Despite the obvious presence of the military who are purportedly there for internal security, these killings continue to happen with impunity.” She said the same armed paramilitary group led by Marcos Bocales, who were implicated in the killing of Henry Alameda and Aldren Dumaguit on October 24, 2014, were also identified as the perpetrators of this killing.

come to an end. I took refuge in a humble economy hotel, the Bonsay River View Inn near the back of the city hall and beside Bislig River. My room was literally facing it where I jumped and swam towards the big fishing boat, tempted to head to the sea but a bangkero (boatman) passed me by and took me below Bislig Bridge and sailed to

the mangrove forest. “You could have reached Naked Island,” Aprodecio “Dodo” Alba Jr., owner of Bonsay, told me. Naked Island is a sandbar near the mouth of the river and close to Hagonoy Island, a dive site destination. For surfing enthusiasts, a surfing spot in Barangay Tabon awaits you. There is no reason why not stay overnights in this growing city of Surigao del Sur, Caraga Region. A baywalk invites you as you mingle with the locals or savor restaurants, from Vietnamese-inspired to the native. Not to miss the White Wall ( Tinuy-an) of course, all guaranteed to lure you back.

undetermind origin. Yesterday, the mayor has sought the help of Atty. Oswald Pague of the Bureau of Customs in Region 10 (BOC-10) for the donation of used clothings. Pague assured the mayor that the agency will donate one container van of used clothings it consfiscated in favor of the government. Alvin Enciso, BOC-10 intelligence officer II, said the agency can donate any confiscated item to any government agencies as long as the requirements are met. Nash Guro, BOC-10 assessment division chief, said the BOC has already donated assorted goods to Yolanda victims. In the case of Opol, Pague said the BOC requires the Sangguniang Bayan to pass a resolution requesting for the donation of at least one container van of assorted used clothings. S eno, on one hand, thanked Pague for the positive reply saying most of the victims failed to secure their personal belongings. The mayor also declared the area as “no build zone.” “We will relocate the fire victims to a safer place,” said Seno as he described the area as “calamity prone.” As of press time, the victims were housed at the covered court in Barangay Luyong Bonbon. The local government of Opol and the provincial government of Misamis Oriental have initially distributed food packs to the fire victims.

The fuming Maongco warned the suspects that he will not let this pass unacted upon and that heads will roll. Maongco told Sinsuat that he gave the suspects until September 2 to return the remaining amount or they will be charged accordingly. All the three victims could not say how the suspect sneaked in the van. He said the victims, Hanna Malang, 26, Magelco cashier, Basit Benito, 52, security guard and Gerome Romuar, 39, Magelco driver, were on board a Toyota Hi-Lux D4D van heading to Magelco office when the incident happened at 3 p.m. Thursday. The victims had come from various sub-offices of Magelco in Maguindanao where they gathered the collection money. Only three of them in the van and they were unaware of the 4th man in the vehicle. “Malang and Romuar maintained they were really unaware of the 4th man who believed to have hidden under the back seat of the vehicle,” Sinsuat said.

Fire investigators are still determining the cause of the fire and have placed an estimated damaged of about Php 1 million. No one was reported injured in the fire. Emano, who personally went to the fire scene, also instructed the Provincial Health Office (PHO) and the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (PDRRMC) to attend to the medical needs of the fire victims. At least, 97 fire victims have been evacuated to the Luyong Bonbon Elementary School (LBES) while the rest of the victims have been adopted by friends and relatives in the neighboring villages, town Mayor Maximo Seno said. Seno said that the municipal town of Opol would declare the area as “no build zone” while seeking an assistance from the national government to provide a suitable relocation site for the fire victims. “The coastal village of Luyong Bonbon has been declared a danger zone because of its susceptibility to natural disaster, especially during storms and typhoons,” Seno said. Emano said that the provincial government would support moves to relocate the fire victims, but not at the expense of their livelihood as fisher folks.

Duterte also told his audience that the only way for the Philippines to attain development and progress is to create more infrastructure. “If you dream of a better Philippines, you shape up. You have to work on the infrastructure. Because if there is none, if you do not offer the safest, cheapest and the fastest to do it, the Philippines will not progress,” the maverick mayor said.

North Cotabato wants cloud seeding done ahead of El Niño By Ferdinandh B. Cabrera of MindaNews

KIDAPAWAN City--The North Cotabato provincial government has recommended the conduct of cloud seeding operations ahead of the El Nino phenomenon or dry spell which is expected to start this month. The measure aims to cushion the impact of the dry spell and maintain agriculture productivity of local corn and palay farmers, Gov. Emmylou Mendoza said in her speech during Tuesday’s culminating program of the province’s 101st foundation anniversary highlighted by Kalivungan Festival. Mendoza said she will meet with agriculture and disaster management officials of the province to tackle preparations for the coming drought which experts say could be worse than the 1997-1998 El Nino. She said the water levels

in creeks and rivers have decreased that’s why she wanted cloud seeding to start this month. The provincial government has already started food security projects early this year in Makilala, Arakan and Aleosan towns. The projects have a budget of P62 million and include the construction of farm-to-market roads, multi-purpose solar drying facilities and feed mills. In 2014, North Cotabato was adjudged the top producer of rice in Region 12 with a production of 518,000 metric tons and second top corn producer with an output of 592,171 MT. North Cotabato has been known as the fruit basket of the Philippines. It also produces high value crops like banana, rubber, oil palm in addition to corn and palay, its major crops. (Ferdinandh B.

Family of OFW on death row going to Dubai GENERAL Santos City-The family of an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) from this city who is facing death penalty in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) after being convicted last May of killing her employer will finally meet with her in the next few days. Rahima Dalquez, mother of convicted OFW Jennifer, said Tuesday they are set to leave for the UAE anytime this week to visit her daughter at the Al Ain jail and help in the ongoing appeals for her case. Rahima will be joined by her husband Abdulhamid and another family member in the trip, which is being facilitated by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA). “We’re happy that Allah is giving us this chance to see her and we’re very thankful to the government for making this happen,” she said in the vernacular in an interview over TV Patrol Socsksargen. Jennifer Dalquez, 28, who hails from Barangay Labangal here, was sentenced to death by a court in Al Ain, UAE last May 20 for stabbing her employer to death on Dec. 7, 2014. During trial, she said the act was in self-defense after her Emirati employer had tried to rape her. Ebrahim Zailon, acting head of the DFA regional

consular office here, said the agency had assigned a lawyer to handle Dalquez’ case, especially her appeal. A hearing for her appeal was set on Sept. 3 in Al Ain, UAE. Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz visited Dalquez in jail last June 18 and expressed “high hopes” that the appeal would be successful. The Department of Social Welfare and Development and the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration had provided assistance to Dalquez’ family, especially her two children. Jennifer’s father Abdulhamid believes her daughter’s conviction would be overturned as she only acted in self-defense. “She’s innocent so we’re very hopeful with her appeal,” he said. Rahima, on the other hand, advised relatives of other OFWs who are facing various sentences overseas “not to lose hope.” “We’re also hoping that we will be joined by Jennifer when we return home,” she added.

he annual Pyro Festival celebration presented by SM City Cagayan de Oro in partnership with the City of Cagayan de Oro and supported by the Department of Tourism Region 10 once again painted the sky with colorful canvas of dancing lights last August 28, 2015 (Friday- The official scheduled festival of the city) at Pueblo de Oro Grounds. On a recent post coming from the said mall, more than 200,000 people gathered the fireworks display, witnessing the literal explosive atmosphere of dancing lights blending it with chosen music and created an amusement of the cheering crowds. A total of 7 contenders of different groups joined the Pyro Festival competition showcasing and competing their best compositions of light display and music. Moreover, the event started at 7pm as pre-program and officially blasted around 9pm complying with the airspace clearance given by the CAAP. The team from Cagayan de Oro (the 7th fireworks display contestant) bagged the First Place followed by the team from Manila (5th fireworks display contestant)

and the team from Iligan City (1st fireworks display contestant). The Pyro Festival event has been a favorite of Kagay-anons and tourists and became part of the Festival’s tradition.

Both malls presented a one of a kind experience to the whole spectators. It created an enormous impact of entertainment to the whole crowd of family, buddies, friends, and the likes, given us a feeling of thrill and excitement. Both Pyro Festivals painted an aweinspiring creation of wonder to the entire community and generated a truly unique Festival celebrating the Feast of St Augustine of Hippo. The number of the crowd joining the fireworks display with enormous excitement and high energy noise proves the event is a real success.
