Briefly Bottom-up budgeting THE Cagayan de Oro City Council headed by Vice Mayor Caesar Ian E. Acenas is slated to approve the proposed Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between the city government and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI-10) covering the implementation of the Food Packaging and Labeling Facilities of the Grassroots Participatory Budgeting (GPB), formerly known as Bottom-Up Budgeting (BuB). The City Council committees on finance and ways and means and on laws and rules chaired by Councilors President Elipe and Ramon Tabor, respectively favorably endorsed the proposed ordinance authorizing Mayor Oscar Moreno to enter into and sign the proposed MOA. With this, legislators are also set to appropriate the sum of P2,047,500 from the 2014 annual budget of the General Fund under Non-Office:General Public Services-Reserved for Special Projects/Programs/ Special Purpose Fund to be made available as the city’s counterpart fund for the poverty reduction project.

RE projects DAVAO City -- In a bid to push for cleaner and greener energy sources in Mindanao, key regional government agencies involved in the permitting process of renewable energy (RE) projects have expressed commitment to accelerate processing and updating of RE project applications in the regions. This commitment was obtained during a recent regional rounds made by the Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA) to provide operational updates on the implementation of the One Stop Facilitation and Monitoring Center (OSFMC), a web-based portal for tracking RE applications in Mindanao. Desktop computer sets with built-in software that will allow for effective monitoring of all pending RE project applications in Mindanao were turned over to the Department of Environmental and Natural Resources-Environment Management Bureau (DENREMB) Regions X and XII, and the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) Regions IX, X and XII in simple ceremonies from July 14 to 23 at their respective offices.

Northern Mindanao, the biggest broiler producer in Mindanao and third nationwide, already exports processed chicken, cut-up chicken, and Peking duck to Japan, but majority of the production is sold locally, mainly to the Visayas. “We need to see if our local exporters can be at par with the products that come here.

Rankings are based on last year’s sum of their scores on the three essential pillars on Economic Dynamism, Government Efficiency and Infrastructure. “We should be proud and grateful for this holistic achievement which comes out from our collaborative efforts as a Local Government Unit (LGU) that has been doing

its best in implementing the substance of NCCP’s pillars as standard operating procedures in our respective call for public service” said City Mayor Marie Guingona. NCCP results show that the “City of Good Luck” ranks 13th in the pillar of government efficiency, 28th in economic dynamism and 55th in infrastructure.

“With the advent of funds from national offices for this year’s lined-up projects, our ranking on infrastructure will definitely soar highflying towards upward direction,” said the lady mayor. According to City Director Pablio Benitez, Jr. has reiterated that similar to the 2014 result where Gingoog ranked No. 35, this

city will again receive awards allotted by the Department of the Interior and Local

Government (DILG) for this search. (Buboy Pabia/ Gingoog media bureau)

Empowering the poor through livelihood opportunities THE Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) empowers poor families through the Sust ai nabl e L ivel i ho o d Program (SLP), a communitybased capacity building effort that seeks to improve the program participants’ socioeconomic status. SLP is implemente d through two tracks: Microenterprise Development and Employment Facilitation. The Micro-enterprise Development track supports micro-enterprises in becoming organizationally and economically viable, whereas the Employment Facilitation track assists p a r t i c i p a nt s t o a c c e s s appropriate employment opportunities. Both tracks are exe c ute d b as e d on the C ommunity-Driven Enterprise Development (CDED) approach, which equips program participants to actively contribute to production and labor markets by looking at available resources and accessible markets. From January 2011 to March 2015, SLP benefited

a total of 773,796 families wherein 648,328 families were served through the Microenterprise Development track and 125,468 families under the Employment Facilitation track. The government has spent P4.46 billion for SLP implementation for this period. It was during the Aquino administration that DSWD strengthened its partnership with public and private sectors through 963 SLP projects. These projects increased the economic opportunities of the families by strengthening values and skills formation; increasing access to credit, savings and micro-insurance; improving product development and marketing; and providing pre-employment training and direct employment. A m o n g D S W D ’s partner-agencies are the Departments of Agriculture (DA), Environment and Natura l Res ources ( D E N R ) , Int e r i o r a n d Local Government (DILG), Labor and Employment (DOLE), Public Works and Highways (DPWH), Science and Technology (DOST), Tourism (DOT), Trade and Industry (DTI), and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA). DSWD Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman said that two beneficiaries have become proof of the gains of the program. She cited Lilibeth Polinar of Caraga Region for being able to expand her business of hog raising, rice farming, buying and selling LIVELIHOOD/PAGE 8

Thoughts of a distraught father

I

NSPIRASYON SA B U H A Y : “… T i i s i n ninyo ang mga bigat sa buhay bilang pagtutuwid; itinuturing kayo ng Diyos bilang Kanyang mga anak. Sapagkat sino ba ang mga naak na di dinidisiplina ng kanilang ama?” (Hebreo 12:7, Bibliya). -ooo THOUGHTS OF A DISTRAUGHT FATHER: Let me share with you today the distraught thoughts of a father who gallantly labored with his wife through the years in a valiant effort to enable all their children to go to school, so that they could become professionals someday capable of earning their own keep. The children having all graduated from college and are now having decent jobs of their own, the family business that sustained them through college suffered reverses and is now closed. This is a misfortune largely for the father and his wife, because they now have nothing to earn anything from, facing the prospect of a destitute life in their old age. Of course, the children have expressed their willingness to share part of their earnings for the daily sustenance and upkeep of

The Hippie and the Old Man

hink a minute…There was a young, intelligent university student named Bill. Bill was what some people call a “free spirit” or “hippie.” He had wild long hair, always wore the same old and torn T-shirt, jeans and no shoes. Across the street from the university campus was a conservative church. The people there were rich, older and well-dressed. They wanted to help the university students nearby, but they did not know exactly how to do it. Well, one day Bill decided to go visit this church by his university. As usual, he went wearing his only jeans, old, torn T-shirt and his dirty long hair. The church service had already started and was full, so Bill walked down the center aisle looking for a seat. People were getting more and more uncomfortable as they watched this unclean, wildlooking young man. Finally, Bill got to the front and saw there were no more empty seats, so he just sat down on the floor right in front of the preacher. No one had ever done that in this church before! By now, everyone was upset and distracted. Then, a respected old church deacon got up and started toward the front.

their parents, but there is always an issue of how long this generosity is going to last as each of them will have to have their own families soon, and, of course, there would always be the concern about the sufficiency of what is to be shared by them. -ooo FATHER SHOUTED AT BY HIS CHILDREN: But that seemed to be just the tip of the “iceberg” called trouble for the father. Without his asking for it, he is now going to be embroiled in a dispute that would compel him to go through a very expensive court litigation in the days to come. This is an event that would surely add to the already heavy burden he is carr ying now, if not remedied right away, for w h e re w ou l d s om e on e like him and his equally unemployed and sick ly wife get the money for a protracted trial? And that was even the easy part of his situation at the moment. For, what became more heart-gripping for the father was the reaction of his children when he called them to a family meeting, to discuss what the legal dispute he is facing at the moment was all ab out. To his amazement, he got

shouted at, and told to simply surrender, by the very children whom he did not fail to support in their own past youthful battles. -ooo THE HOPE THAT GOD GIVES STRENGTHENS: B e f o r e m e , t h e f at h e r confessed being crushed, and defeated, and unable to decide what to do next. In his desperation and pity for himself at this stage where he is no longer possessed w it h t h e s t re ng t h an d the resources to fight, he intimated he is ready to leave this world if only to finish off all his problems. I could only commiserate with him. But, in a flash of divine inspiration, I took my Bible, and read to him the verses that prove he is deeply loved by God (John 3:16), that God has a plan to prosper and not to harm him, a plan to give him hope and bright future (Jeremiah 29:11), a plan that is true and could be depended on because God does not lie and does what He promises (Numbers 23:19). Suddenly, the father’s face lig htene d up. The worried look parted from his face. He fell silent, as if on a trance, and silently uttered, “God help me.” Then and there, I agreed to

THINK

A Minute

Jhan Tiafau Hurst Everyone was thinking: “You can’t blame the deacon, he really should correct this disrespectful young man.” Everyone was watching. Even the preacher stopped his sermon when the old man finally got to the front. Then, they were all completely surprised to see the old deacon drop his walking stick and very slowly sit down on the floor next to this young hippie. He did not want this young man to sit alone and feel unaccepted. The people in the church were moved to tears. Finally, the preacher said: “What I am preaching about today you will probably never remember. But what you have just seen you will never forget!” Friend, it does not matter hurst/PAGE 10

eeping order has always been an abiding concern of ours. And especially now, when we are thrown into an increasingly complex and complicated world, we would really need to have a firm and solid hold on this virtue. Otherwise, we would just be lost in today’s maze, so marked with a lot of pressures, issues, need for multi-tasking, challenges, etcetera. We just have to make sure, first of all, that in speaking of order, we need to have an objective basis. We just cannot be led in this by passing ideas of how this virtue should be, as in simply following our raw instincts, or some merely worldly values like efficiency and convenience, profitability and popularity, or some earthly concept of aesthetics, etcetera. Our instincts and the worldly values can only give us some semblance of order, but they cannot bring us to our eternal destination which is what this virtue of order in the end is for. Our instincts and the worldly values are in need of a deeper, more stable foundation that would put them oriented and on track toward our final goal in life. And this objective basis of the virtue of order is none other than God who is our creator and the first and ultimate lawgiver.

To him we should always have constant recourse, because as creator and lawgiver he is actually governing all his creation at all times through his providence. We should never forget this fundamental truth of our faith. God is always in control of everything, no matter how much we mess up his work. As the Book of Ecclesiastes puts it: “All things have their season, and in their times all things pass under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die…A time of love and a time of hatred. A time of war and a time of peace.” (3,1ff ) God knows what to do with any situation. He allows his creatures, especially us, to live according to their Godgiven nature, including the possibility of going against nature which of all the creatures, we, as free beings, are capable of doing. And in spite of that, God would still know in his wisdom, power and mercy, what to do. God effectively orchestrates a kind of symphony out of his own creation. Our virtue of order that necessarily involves also the virtue of prudence would require us to have an abiding and intimate relationship with God. That way, we would go along with God’s plans and ways. We, so to speak, would

do our part in that great symphony God is conducting in his entire creation, hoping to avoid getting out of tune. That is why when we talk about how to develop this crucial virtue, we need to realize more deeply that we have to take care, first of all, of our interior order before we worry about exterior order, material, temporal, social, cultural, political, etcetera. Obviously, the priority we give to interior order over exterior order is in terms of the spiritual and moral dimension of our life. In the actual flow of life, we learn first some exterior order before we are aware of the need to take care of our interior order. But once we see the priority of interior order over the exterior, we need to change gear and give due attention to the former. With interior order well taken care of, we would really know what is essential in life and would be properly guided when we are faced with apparently competing options that in themselves are good. We would know what to sacrifice for the sake of the greater good, or bluntly said, of what God wants in any given moment. T h i s i nt e r i or ord e r prevents us from getting rigid, although it will always make use of certain attitudes,

HINTS

and

Traces

Fr. Roy Cimagala practices and habits that would always be welcome anytime or most of the time. This can be the attitudes of always being prompt and making good use of time, avoiding idleness and laziness, or the practice of assigning specific places for specific items, or specific times for specific activities. Still, the main motor of our sense of order is that intimate sensibility of following God’s will in any given moment. This will make our sense of order flexible, not frozen. This is, of course, a big challenge, since it will not be easy to be acquainted and abidingly familiar with God’s will and ways. But that’s the big challenge which we have to face squarely. And the sooner we tackle it, the better for us. roycimagala@gmail.com

Mt. Kalatungan Payment for Ecosystem Services project marks milestones

T

he inaugural year of the Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) project in Mt. Kalatungan in Talakag, Bukidnon recently celebrated its project milestones for what has been deemed an “emerging financial tool for environmental conservation.” Built on research and community collaborations, the rehabilitation project has introduced to Northern Mindanao a market-oriented “rewards mechanism” with a “seller” who protects and provides ecosystem services to a “buyer” who reaps the benefits from “intangible” products. “PES was and still a big challenge because it’s very difficult to convince people to pay for environmental services,” notes Raoul T.Geollegue, senior technical consultant of Relief International – Enterprise Works Worldwide Philippines (RIEWWP), one of the lead partner institutions for this project. “There is a disconnect between what we consider forest goods and services. Our mindset is that we pay for goods, but not for something that is not concrete, like fresh air,” Geollegue added. The Miarayon–Lapok– Lirongan–Tinaytayan Tribal Association (MILALITTRA) serves as “the seller”or forest manager in this project while various sectors — businesses, cooperatives, academic institutions, religious organizations and households in Cagayan de Oro City— are “the buyers” of its various ecosystem services, such as ensuring the streams along the region develop high water infiltration capacity and provide a continuous

supply of potable water, clean air and food. P.E.S. was officially launched on May 21, 2014 with leaders and representatives from public and private institutions. After a month, the first wave of project implementation and treeplanting activities took off for the pilot three-hectare area. The first-year harvest Mt. Kalatungan is among 18 protected areas provided with PES technical and management assistance by public and private groups. With its diverse species of flora and fauna, it was identified as part of a “Terrestrial Biodiversity Corridor,” the Kitanglad-Ligwasan Corridor, in the Greater Mindanao biogeographic region with “extremely high critical” conservation priority. In his presentation during the “Modalities, Practices and Experiences in the Implementation of PES” forum on July 17, 2015, Xavier Science Foundation (XSF) executive director Roel R. Ravanera said that the pilot year of PES in Mt. Kalatungan has yielded a “very encouraging” result. “Different sectors and groups have shown their support in this project since we launched it in May 2014,” Ravanera recounted. “Over the past year, we were able to gather Php1.3M, which is a very encouraging response from the people of Cagayan de Oro City despite the difficulties of selling ecosystem services.” “The 3-hectare pilot phase was funded by the Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA) to make it easier for the project holder to promote the PES Mt. Kalatungan Project to potential buyers,”

said Lordilie Enjambre, MinDA Development Management Officer for Northern Mindanao. “We are already mobilizing our other regional offices-the Area Management Offices in Caraga, Western Mindanao, South Central Mindanao, and Davao to implement PES projects following our success in Northern Mindanao.” XSF acts as the fund manager for the PES project in Mt. Kalatungan. The fund will be used to implement the 5-year development master plan of MILALITTRA for environmental protection, cultural preservation, youth development, and education and health services. The group’s Community Development Plan (CDP) targets to reforest 832 hectares, of which 816 will be used for agro forestry within their ancestral domain. “The forest is an extension of our identity as a tribe,” MILALITTRA leader Datu Dungkoan “Rio” Besto said in the vernacular. “We are committed and we will do our tasks in protecting and preserving the environment of Mt. Kalatungan to ensure that we deliver our part of this project.” A champion of environmental conservation, Datu Rio (whose name means “river,”) is optimistic that this endeavor would help develop and preserve their culture. “This project is not just for the present generation but also for the future of our tribe,” he added. MILALITTRA also looks forward to the construction of their tulugan (a sacred place for community dialogues and rituals) and providing

incentives for the Bantay Lasang volunteers using the income and support generated from PES. The shadows of Sendong The destruction wrought by Tropical Storm Sendong (international name: Washi) in December 2011 was a shocking revelation to the people of Cagayan de Oro who once promoted the region as “typhoon-free”. “Sendong was very traumatic for Cagayan de Oro City,” Ravanera expressed. “We need to really work together in hope that we can mitigate such disasters in the future.” Based on the flood maps produced by the XU - Engineering Resource Center (ERC) in coordination with national and international research organizations, most of the water and silt which ravaged the city originated from the headwater of the Cagayan River tributaries in Bukidnon.

PES now seeks to bring together the communities from the downstream and highlands of the region to provide the ecological services aimed at preventing floods in catchment areas like CDO. “The people who contributed to this PES were the ones who experienced T.S. Sendong so it was easy for them to relate,” Ravanera said. To ensure the project’s sustainability, Ravanera said the stakeholders need to meet the challenges of getting the trust and confidence of the buyers, ensuring the delivery of results and services, and providing efficient management. As PES faces its next year, the issue of sustainability has been stressed by the key players of this project. PES in Mt. Kalatungan has been listed a priority project supported by the Cagayan de Oro River Basin Management Council (CDORBMC) which hopes to get the support of the local government units in Region 10 by making it part of their environmental policies. Del Monte Foundation, Inc. (DMFI) has committed P1.25M worth of endemic seedlings for the project during the ceremonial signing of a memorandum of agreement last July 17.

The activity was attended by 186 students from the said school.

The activity was also witnessed by BSU-SESC Administrator Florina Brua, faculty and Supreme Student Government (SSG) officers of the school.

Kalatungan, Xavier UniversityAteneo de Cagayan, through its Research and Social Outreach (RSO) and McKeough Marine Center (MMC), launched the Valuing Ecosystem Services Together (VEST) campaign in November 2014. “After the grand launch, VEST has produced more IEC materials and conducted a lot of activities to promote the importance of working together for PES,” said VEST social marketing supervisor Evans I.Yonson, a Development Communication professor at XU.

“We applied different social media strategies to invite people to our events and encourage them to inVEST in nature using catchy hashtags such as #VESTfriendofNature, #inVESTinNature and #50ShadesofGreen,” he added. The social marketing team along with volunteers from XU will visit Miarayon on July 31 to distribute water jugs to schoolchildren as part of the “Jug for Education” project of VEST. The team is also producing a photo book chronicling the journey of this campaign, which will be launched during the ceremonial turnover of management of this

environmental campaign to the XU - Center of Communication for Development (CC4D). In a span of one year, VEST has built a network of student volunteers, conducted school orientations, produced two albums of songs about conservation, organized speaking engagements and film festivals about the PES project and collaborated with different organizations for local and global environmental celebrations. “With these milestones, we can see that it was already a good start,” Yonson said. “The VEST journey continues because caring for Mother Nature doesn’t stop.”

Education... from page 1

the DepEd, local government unit, the community and the academe like Xavier University has proven its veracity. “Thanks to SPI’s Reading and English Proficiency Program, we have attained our highest rating in the National Achievement Test (NAT) for elementary schools this year at 85 percent,” said Elsa P. Millanes, the prog ram’s co ordinators for the Vicente N. Chavez Memorial Central School (VNCMCS). The program, locally called “Manghud, Magulang”, which aims to give elementary school pupils a solid foundation that will eventually launch them to be globally competitive, i s a mu lt i - s t a ke h ol d e r approach to education. It aims to strengthen one of the important foundations in the learning process, which is reading and English proficiency, and thus improved their academic performance. Proficiency in English is a foundation of a better grasp of such important subjects as science and mathematics, said SPI president and CEO Dr. Bodo Goerlich during the program’s launching in 2007. “Ultimately, we want our students to excel in these fields [English, Science, and Mathematics] for them to be more prepared as they aspire to become more globally competitive,” he said. Pupils’ low academic performance has been mainly attributed to difficulties in reading and comprehension. “If pupils can read the question and comprehend well, then naturally they can answer the question. Kay kung dili sila makasabot, dili man pud sila maka-answer (If they don’t understand, they also cannot answer),” Millanes said. Performer School Before “Synergeia” as the program is popularly called locally, the most that VNCMCS pupils get during NAT was 79% in 2012. Prior years showed their NAT rating was way below passing grade, at 65%. Then it slowly clawed up to P69%, then 70%. This is mainly due to the efforts of teachers who despite the “burden” that it entails continue their labor of love: they have to make or buy their own reading manuals and materials to make it easy for pupils to understand the lessons and comprehend the English language. But with teachers like Millanes, whose dedication to educating children is like a second nature that it just comes naturally, the school’s NAT rating continue to rise through the years until it reached 83% in 2014. Millanes thought that they have already reached the zenith, but she was happily surprised to know that this

year 2015, the school’s NAT rating is 85%, the highest so far since the school’s founding. “The last two years, nagincrease gyud og dako ang among achievement rates sa NAT for elementary,” she proudly proclaimed. “The academic achievement of the school depends on the learning of t he pupi ls. Wit hout a ny r e f e r e n c e s , b o o k s and manuals, we cannot enhance their lessons. If the student cannot comprehend well, it will lead to poor achievement of pupils. Sa instruction pa lang daan, telling them what to do, diha gyud magsumikad. If the pupils cannot understand the direction and cannot comprehend the question, they cannot answer correctly,” she explained. Collaborative Effort Education, thus, is a collaborative effort. With the help and support of stakeholders, it is not surprising that VNCMCS is a “performer school”, an achiever school. “We are very proud that the district of Villanueva, especially us here in this school, we frequently host regional contests. This is because we are supported by the LGU. And we have sent representatives to various national championships. This also because we have a very good relationship with the community,” Millanes disclosed. She adde d: “We are really very grateful for the support of all stakeholders to elevate our school’s overall performance, not just our pupils’.” It i s a l s o to t he stakeholders that the Vicente N. Chavez Memorial Central School, through Millanes, expressed gratefulness for passing the second level of accreditation in the School-Based Management (SBM) category of the Basic Education Sector Reform Agenda (BESRA). SBM, a Key Thrust 1 of BESRA to raise school performance, is a means of localizing governance starting at the grassroots level in the DepEd. It is based on the national policy of decentralization originally set by the Philippine Local Government Code of 1991 (RA 7160) as a response t o t h e n e w c h a l l e nge s for su st ai n abl e hu m an development by enabling local communities to become self-reliant and more effective partners in the attainment of national goals. In SBM, empowerment of stakeholders is given emphasis to enable them to actively participate in the continuous improvement of the school towards the realization of the desired pupils learning outcomes. “Without the stakeholders’ support, failure gyud siguro mi ani,” she said. Key: Read, Read, Read D espite t he s cho ol’s achie vements, Millanes refused to boast about it

because for her, teachers are just facilitators of the learning process of pupils. If pupils have no strong f ou n d at i on i n re a d i n g and English proficiency, stakeholders’ support and teachers’ efforts will not gain much. “The key here is really read and read and read. The purpose of reading is to enhance learning,” she said. If pupils can comprehend English, “teachers can now easily facilitate learning because the children are ready for the lessons particular to their grade level. And they can understand and answer simple questions.” Millanes admitted that despite SPI and Synergeia’s reading program, there are still a number of pupils who can’t read and comprehend English consistent with their grade level. This is because there are really some who are naturally slow readers or even non-readers. These are those who are in the “frustration level.” Parental support plays a very important factor in the reading and comprehension of pupils. And those in the frustration level have no parental support. Other

factors are the environment and lack of educational materials. “ The teacher or school factor is ver y negligible,” she said. According to Millanes, pupils who belong in the frustration level in reading are those who come from broken families and have no monitoring and support from parents. The good news, however, is that there are pupils who come from broken families who are naturally resilient and thus excel academically. “We have many of them here in our school,” she said as she thanked Synergeia and SPI and other stakeholders for providing the necessary manuals, materials and trainings for them to carry out their mandate properly and with success. “It is easy for us teachers now that we have this reading program. We also no longer need to prepare our own mater i a ls and manu a ls because all lessons are now ready-made. Thus, we can save much time in teaching and guiding pupils. We also minimized on expenses for materials. In short, the burdens placed on our shoulders have been lifted,” she stressed.

major broiler integrators in the region, including listed firm San Miguel Pure Foods Company, Inc. Region 10 produced a total of 35 million chickens and 510,000 ducks in 2014, according to the DTI. In 2013, poultry contributed 11% to the region’s agricultural output

with the gross value added in Agriculture, Hunting, Forestr y and Fishing accounting for 24.3% of the regional economy, based on data from the Philippine Statistics Authority. The region contributed 3.73% to the country’s gross domestic product. Ms. Legaspi also admitted during the same forum that exporters would have to hurdle various challenges before the planned export expansion could be achieved. “C omp e t it ive is t he keyword here. We need to ensure that our exporters are aware of the many developments, opportunities as well as challenges because at the end of the day, it’s really how they compete, especially in international trade,” Ms. Legaspi said. The challenges she cited are infrastructure, mobility, and ease of doing business.

Nonetheless, Ms. Legaspi is bullish on the exporters’ prospects, particularly among member countries of the European Union (EU). U n d e r t h e E U ’s G enera lize d System of Preferences Plus, of which the Philippines has been made a member in December 2014, among the commodities under zero tariff are prepared food and animal and vegetable fat and oils.

It was also one of the eight regional economies which posted accelerated growth rates, improving by 1.9 percentage points from its recorded growth rate in the previous year. In a press conference hosted by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) Region 10 yesterday, Eddie E. Nasol, PSA-10 interim regional director, said the expansion was attributed to the accelerated growth in the industry and service sectors. Among the three major economic sectors, services grew the most (5.5 to 8 percent), followed by industry (6.8 to 9 percent) while AHFF retained its 3.2 percent pace from 2013. “Services grew faster in 2014 (8% vs 5.5% in 2013); trade and repair accelerated from 3.9% in 2013 to 10.2% in 2014, and so on across the board,” Nasol said in his presentation.

Republic of the Philippines REGIONAL TRIAL COURT OF LANAO DEL NORTE 12TH Judicial Region BRANCH 07 Tubod, Lanao del Norte IN THE MATTER OF PETITION FOR CORRRECTION IN THE ENTRY OF THE CERTIFICATE OF BIRTH OF LEONARDO MARIQUIT. SPL. PROC. NO. 303-07-2015 LEONARDO MARIQUIT, - versus –

Petitioner,

MUNICIPAL CIVIL REGISTRAR OF TUBOD, LANAO DEL NORTE, Respondent. X---------------------------------------/ ORDER This is a petition for correction of entry in the Certificate of Live Birth of LEONARDO MARIQUIT, the petitioner in this case, praying among others that after notice and hearing, an Order be issued directing the Respondent to effect the correction sought for. Petitioner alleges that he is a Filipino citizen, married to Fe Jeril E. Mariquit, and resident of Zone 12, Impantao, Bulua, Cagayan de Oro City. The Respondent is sued in her official capacity. That petitioner was born on December 8, 1971 in Malingao, Tubod, Lanao del Norte to spouses Silveria Capangpangan Magdadaro and Emiliano Maglasang Mariquit. His birth was duly reported and recorded in the office of the Local Civil Registrar of Tubod, Lanao del Norte. Since childhood to present, he has been using the name “LEONARDO MAGDADARO MARIQUIT” because “MAGDADARO” is the surname of her mother and “MARIQUIT” is the surname of his father. In all his school and personal records including his records in the military where he is presently a member, he has been using “MAGDADARO” as his middle name. Recently, when he was preparing his personal records in anticipation of his forthcoming retirement from the Philippine Army, he discovered that his middle name “MAGDADARO” did not appear in his Birth Certificate. Through the years, he was on the belief that the record of his birth contained his full and complete name, only to find out later that he has no middle name in his birth certificate. That in his Birth Certificate, there appears in Item 21 the “date and place of marriage” of his parents. However, when he verified with NSO, there was no record of marriage of his parents, though it is presumed that he and his sibling were born out of wedlock in the absence of record of marriage of their parents, they all bear the family name of their father, LEONARDO MARIQUIT (deceased) as their surname in their certificates and school and personal records. His elder sister named Josephine Magdadaro Mariquit who was born on august 10, 1968 in Malingao, Tubod, Lanao del Norte has a complete name in her Birth Certificate with the correct entries as to her middle name and the names of parents. In his case, there is a need to correct the entry in his Birth Record in order to conform to the true facts of his birth, by putting the name “MAGDADARO” in the unfilled portion for the middle name, thus, completing his name from “LEONARDO MARIQUIT” to “LEONARDO MAGDADARO MARIQUIT”. Set the initial hearing of the petition to August 24, 2015 at 8:30 in the morning before the sala of this court. Furnish copy of the Order containing the petition to the office of the Solicitor General at Makati City, Office of the Local Civil Registrar in Baroy, Lanao del Norte, Office of the Public Prosecutor’s, to Atty. Raul M. Llacuna of Bulua, Cagayan de Oro City and to the petitioner at his known address. The petitioner is hereby directed to publish copy of this Order in a newspaper of general circulation within the province of Lanao del Norte for three (3) consecutive weeks, at his expense.

Petitioner is the mother of JHEMRY ALTUBAR TANGCAY who was born on February 23, 2010 at RHU-Maternity and Lying-in Clinic, Baroy, Lanao del Norte. When she gave birth to her child, she was not legally married to the child’s father, REY ALFANTA TANGCAY, who was then abroad. When she was asked for the information of her status, she told the attending midwife that was not yet married but her wedding was already scheduled on May 26, 2010. Unknowingly when the birth of the child was registered, “the place and date of marriage of parents” was filled up, “May 26, 2010, Baroy, Lanao del Norte” despite that fact that it was still to happen as she was not married yet at the time she gave birth to her son. When she caused for the LEGITIMATION of her son, Respondent refused registration over the same on the ground that the entries which were reflected in the Birth Certificate has to be cancelled and corrected first before the LEGITIMATION be effected and annotated in the Certificate of Live Birth of JHEMRY ALTUBAR TANGCAY. And it can only be done through Court proceedings. In the Certificate of Marriage of Petitioner, it contains an erroneous entry under the “husband’s name of father” which was typewrote as “NICANOR TANGCAY” instead of “NICOLAS TANGCAY”.
