‘Worst flood’ hits Zambo By Bong S. Sarmiento
ZAMBOANGA CITY — Floods due to intermittent heavy rains since Friday submerged parts of this city Tuesday in what an official said is “the worst flood to hit Zamboanga City in recent memory.” Adriano Fuego, Office of Civil Defense director for Region 9, told MindaNews Tuesday morning that at least 11 villages in the city
were flooded.

100 days: An ‘acid test,’ Emano By CRIS DIAZ Exec. Editor Mindanao Daily News
GINGOOG City, Misamis Oriental––Although developing tourism took center stage, the alleged corruption of the previous administration became the major topic of the provincial governor’s 100-day report here on Tuesday. Gov. Yevgeny Vincente Emano told a jam packed crowd of over 1,000 at the Lugod Gym when he delivered his 100-day office report since he assumed the gubernatorial post of Misamis Oriental last July 1, 2013 that his administration has been “burning candles” to overcome the current financial malady of the province. “My 100 days in office was an ‘acid test’ of an infantile administration marred by alleged corruption and financial mismanagement of the previous administration,” Emano said accompanied by a power point presentation of the financial
woes because of alleged squandering by the former Gov. Oscar Moreno. Emano delivered the 100-day report in Gingoog City Tuesday morning while his provincial administrator Edmundo Pacamalan Jr. separately rendered the same report at the provincial Capitol in Cagayan de Oro City on the same day. The governor has chosen Gingoog City, a component city, some 200 kms east of Cagayan de Oro City, as the
venue of his 100 days in the office report as a symbolic gesture of bringing his administration closer to the people of Misamis Oriental. Emano told the crowd that the development of the tourism industry would become the flagship of his administration armed with the pessimism of transforming Misamis Oriental as the tourism hub in Northern Mindanao in the coming years. “It would excite the people of Misamis Oriental if they will learn that the two-day tourism summit held last week in Medina was excessively successful,” Emano said. He said that the term “excessively successful” was an exaggerated figure of speech that aptly described the positive responses of stakeholders in the tourism industry during the two-day summit.
“The province of Misamis Oriental got the commitment of support amounting to over P100 million from the private and public sectors, notably, the Department of Tourism and the “Tourism Infrastructure Enterprise Zone,” Emano added. He said that TIEZA has already committed P 48 million for the initial development of bankable tourist sites in the province aside from including Misamis Oriental in the P 17 billion budget for the development of various tourist spots in the country next year. “While we were extremely happy with the commitments and pledges from the private and government sectors to push for the development of the province’s tourism industry, we were also equally sad that the previous administration has drained the provincial cof-
fers to bankruptcy,” Emano added. He said that an audit report of the Commissions on Audit for the 2012-2013 confirmed that Gov. Oscar Moreno has left the province reeling in debts, a financial shortage of over P 500 million, and the accountability of various equipment and properties owned by the provincial government. “We have been collating evidence to build a strong case against those who have plundered the province of Misamis Oriental. We have started the filing of initial graft charges against those be believed were accountable,” Emano said. The more than 1,000 contracts and job order workers who were left unpaid for more than P 14 million for several months have already received their salaries albeit on a staggered basis, he said. The provincial
government has stopped the renewal of contract workers except those working in hospitals whose services were urgently needed. After three-month in office, the province has gradually recovered from the financial crisis. “The province was able to improve its revenue income to over P 200 million in just three months and was able to save over P 100 million after paying its obligations during the same period,” Emano said. “We have survived those trying days where, in the beginning, we saw only darkness,” Emano. Now, after surmounting the crucial 100-day, “I am glad to report to the people of Misamis Oriental that we have accomplished more than we have expected and, once again, assured of brighter future ahead of us,” Emano said.
LAGONGLONG, Misamis Oriental – About 360 members of a tribal community in Misamis Oriental on Wednesday asked the military and the local government unit to send them back home to their farming villages. The displaced group belonged to the Higa-onon
tribal community who were evacuated to safer grounds after fresh fighting between government troopers and armed communist guerillas ensued in the hinterlands of Lagonglong a week ago. The Higaonon tribes who were living in the mountain towns of Lagonglong and Balingasag
in Misamis Oriental also called the local government officials in the province to step-in for the immediate pullout of more than 200 military forces in the tribal community’s farming villages. “We want the military to pullout their patrol bases in the in Tapol and Minkamansi all in Barangay Banglay,” a tribal leader said on condition he not be identified. The tribal leaders want the military to leave the tribal community’s ancestral domain so that members of the tribal group could go back to their farmland due to hardship in the evacuation center here. The provincial government has been providing the evacuees of basic needs, particularly foods, blankets, and medicines for the children.and the elderly who were reported to have been suffering from stomach disorders. Since last week, almost 400 Lumad civilians, including children, from the two towns of Lagonglong an Bal-
ingasag decided to evacuate for fear of their safety when over 200 combined elements of the 58th Infantry Battalion and soldiers from the 403 Brigade engaged in a running gunbattle with the communist New People’s Army (NPA) rebels. “The soldiers arrived and started to occupy the area where our houses were just few kilometers away,” the tribal leader said.. At present, they are occupying the grounds of the Balingasag Elementary School and the covered court of Lagonglong, an adjacent town of Balingasag. About 200: children evacuees were forced to stop schooling, a report from the local government said. The tribal leader said that the tribal community has stopped visiting their farm lots due to the presence of the military in the area. “Naa man ang military, so gubot na pud kay ang rebelde mo-atake man. Looy on among pen-name ug mga binuhi,” (The military is there which causes the trouble since NPA would attack every now and then at the expense of our plants and raised farm animals), he said. Vice Governor Joey Pelaez of Misamis Oriental said he “support the call of the community for the military to leave the area to ease the conflict.,” Pelaez said he would immediately call to convene the provincial committee on peace and order to respond to the situation.

Lawmakers want to increase fines for libel By Dionisio P. Tubianosa, Media Relations Service-PRIB
Lawmakers on Wednesday moved to decriminalize libel by abolishing the penalty of imprisonment provision under the Revised Penal Code. Instead, Reps. Rufus Rodriguez (2nd District, Cagayan de Oro City) and Maximo Rodriguez (Partylist, Abante Mindanao) filed House Bill 2562 increasing the fines for violators from the present P6,000 to P30,000. “Although this bill abolishes the penalty of imprisonment, it has increased the amount from the present maximum of P6,000 to the maximum of P30,000, to accomplish the purpose of penalizing libel and deterring would be violators,” Rodriguez said. Rodriguez said the present law on libel infringes on the freedom of speech and of expression and negatively impacts on media practitioners. “We cannot have that libel law in a country where democracy is primarily infringed on the freedom of speech and of expression, and where media is considered the Fourth Estate,” Rodriguez said. Libel is defined under Article 353 of the Revised Penal Code as “a public and malicious imputation of a crime, or of a vice or defect, real or imaginary, or any act, omission, condition, status, Publication Notice RA 10172
or circumstance tending to cause dishonour, discredit or contempt of a natural or juridical person, or to blacken the memory of one who is dead.” Rodriguez said Under the law, one is liable for libel when there is an allegation of a discreditable act or condition concerning another, publication of the charge, identity of the person defamed and the existence of malice. The current law provides that a person guilty of committing libel is penalized with imprisonment ranging from arresto mayor or one month and one day to 6 months, to prision correccional or 6 months and one day to six years, aside from the fine ranging from P200 to P6,000. “Wile the penalty of fine must be sustained, for no crime should go unpunished, imposing a penalty of imprisonment will work more to discourage members of the media from performing their duties with zeal and vigilance,” Rodriguez said. Rodriguez said a libel committed by means of writing, printing, lithography, engraving, radio, phonograph, painting, theatrical exhibition, cinematographic exhibition, or any similar means shall be punished by a fine ranging from P10,000 to P30,000, in addition to the civil action which may be brought by the offended

DAP mess to affect power supply of 5,000 households in remote villages By CHRIS V. PANGANIBAN Regional Editor-Caraga
SAN Francisco, Agusan del Sur-Amid the controversy that is now hounding Malacanang’s Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP), some 5,000 households in the remote villages of this province will be momentarily deprived of their much-awaited electricity at home. “We expect an uncertain delay in the release of DAP funds while the issue is already being heard at the Supreme Court,” said Engr Emmanuel Galarse, general manager of Agusan del Sur Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Aselco). The households in the far-flung villages are recipients of President
Benigno Aquino’s pet electrification projects in the countryside under Barangay Line Enhancement Program (BLEP) and the Sitio Electrification Program (SLEP) of which funds are taken from DAP since it was implemented in 2011. Galarse said they received a notice from the National Electrification Administration (NEA) to put on hold the implementation of the DAP-funded program while waiting for the advice from the Department of Budget and Management. Aselco is expecting P114 million fund this month to implement the second batch of BLEP and SLEP that will benefit at least 107 sitios (sub villages) and three villages targeted to be finished by December 15 this year.
“ The people really felt the benefits of having electricity at home,” Galarse said adding that many households in the farthest villages where electricity have already reached have been groping in the dark at night for many years in the past. Among the recipient villages were Sabang Gibong in Talacogon town and Sabang Adgawan in La Paz town where residents are living in floating houses around the watery ponds of the wide Agusan Marsh. Galarse said President Benigno Aquino III has envisioned that electricity will cover practically all the far-flung areas in the country through BLEP and SLEP before his term ends in 2016. For the meantime, Aselco offi-
cials are pinning hopes to President Aquino standing firm to defend DAP even as they already expected that there could be a delay in the implementation of the electrification program. So far, ASELCO had already implemented around P248.9 million for BLEP and SEP projects from the DAP subsidy fund. The cooperative has been cited as the number one nationwide in the implementation of the program. If things get worse that the Supreme Court will decide DAP to be unconstitutional, the Aselco board will vigorously lobby to make the program under the regular general appropriations of the national government to ensure its continuity.
PDEA-13 warns voters against ‘narco-politicians’ By Roel N. Catoto of MindaNews
SU R I G AO C i t y – – T h e Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency in Region 13 (PDEA-13) warned voters against “narco-politicians” who will be seeking reelection during the barangay elections on October 28. PDEA-Caraga Director Erwin Ogario told MindaNews in a phone interview
Tuesday that his office has been intensifying campaign against local officials directly or indirectly involved in illegal drug activities in the region. Ogario, without naming names, said some of these reelectionists are close friends and relatives of known drug personalities who are under their drug watchlist. “We have been monitor-
ing them. That’s why we ask the support of the public not to vote for these politicians who have been identified as into drug trade,” he said, adding that if these candidates will win again, there is a big possibility that illegal drugs will continue to proliferate in the region. Ogario assured the public that PDEA-13 is zeroing in on these drug personalities and politicians.
Ogario said they were able to arrest a barangay councilman and his cohort in Rosario town in Agusan del Sur dawn last Saturday. He identified the suspects as Cesar Sangalia Fuentes Jr., 39, a barangay kagawad of Libuac of the said town, and a certain Kim Rendon Chua. Ogario said that aside from the suspected shabu and paraphernalia, they also seized guns and
ammunitions from the suspects. He appealed to the public to coordinate with them if they have information regarding the involvement of candidates in illegal drug activities. “We are starting to win the war against illegal drugs. We have the public’s cooperation. We don’t want narco-politics,” Ogario said.

Floodwaters reach 6 feet in some Zambo villages; more residents flee for higher ground
By DOMINIC ILAGAN SANCHEZ
AMBOANGA CITY - Several barangays in Zamboanga are currently submerged in flood as of noon today, as floodwaters have already reached past six feet in some villages sending more people to flee to evacuation centers.
As of this writing, the official number of affected barangays is yet to be released. At dawn today, the body of an old woman between 65 to 70 years old was recovered in Gulayan, San Roque. She was reportedly the house-help of a certain Edwina Bernad, an accountant of the National Food Authority (NFA) here, who was also reported missing. Neighbors in San Roe 3 Subdivision, San Roque said Bernad was swept away by the gush of floodwaters this morning. A coast guard rescue team was dispatched to search for her body. The city continues to experience heavy rains and the water level, as reported by the water district, has already gone past the normal 72-meter mark, going as high as 78 meters. Journalist Frencie Carreon in a text message confirmed that the wall separating the San Jose Gusu River from MEIN College gave in. Water rushed inside the school
campus where some evacuees are sheltered. Teodiver Arquiza of RMN News also reported that in Talon-Talon Loop near the dumpsite, water has reached shoulder level. Some residents in nearby barangay Tugbungan said that they already moved to the second floor of their houses. Residents with one-storey houses have evacuated to elevated areas. Meanwhile, Congressman Celso L. Lobregat made rounds in the different barangays and bared in a radio interview that the affected barangays are Tulungatung, Sinunuc, Pasonanca, San Roque, Tumaga, San Jose Gusu, Baliwasan. He also went to barangay Putik to assess the damage to a rip-rap destroyed by floodwaters. Putik barangay chair Jerry Perez also reported that he already attended to approximately a hundred evacuees who have moved to the Perez Drive Covered Court and elementary

school for shelter. In Barangay Sinunuc, around a hundred houses situated near the riverbank were said to have been washed away by floodwaters at around 2 a.m. today. The Philippine Coast Guard has already dispatched several rescue teams to the affected villages. At around 6 a.m. today, Mayor Beng Climaco declared that all classes in all levels would be suspended and at past 7 a.m. she also
ordered all work in both government and private offices put off, except for those who are in frontline services. In a related development, C ouncilor Mike Alavar also reported that there was already a traffic build-up reaching 1 km along the national highway at barangay Licomo, the easternmost edge of the city, going towards Upper Tungawan.

clamor. Since it has already been abolished, apparently the people did not feel the need anymore for them to still go to the streets against this issue. The other reason that I could see why people are not as enthusiastic anymore in joining protest actions against the pork barrel is that the succeeding protest actions from the one held in Luneta Park attended by a mammoth crowd carries with it an additional call which is the ouster of President Aquino as president either through resignation, people power or impeachment. Originally, this oust Aquino call because of the pork barrel scam was not part of the political objective the people had in staging the Luneta Park rally. That gathering was purely an indignation rally aimed at airing the people’s collective opposition to the pork barrel fund thus their
call for its abolition. Let us remember that it is Aquino himself who brought to fore how this particular fund had been abused by the legislators. And for his act, the people will now demand for his ouster from office? I don’t think there is logic here if viewed from the people’s demand for the abolition of the pork for being the source of corruption among legislators. In fact, it was only during Aquino’s presidency that big personalities such as incumbent senators, former cabinet secretaries and other high ranking functionaries in government had been haled to court for corruption. And you expect the people to reward Aquino with a call for his ouster for his Herculean effort at bringing these people before the bar of justice? I strongly doubt if this is the people’s way of thanking a president who is doing his best to let the abusive corrupt officials and individuals in and outside of the government answer for their shenanigans. Truth of the matter is, only those who are haled to court, those who are being made to answer for their corrupt ways who will not welcome this move by Aquino. Just think of this. Aquino
is very much contented living a simple life. Before he became president and up to this time his taste for food is as ordinary as the one we can all buy from McDonald’s. His only past time is play games in the computer. During meetings he is very much contented eating Cagayan de Oro’s Sler’s chicharon, drinks a glass of coke and eats Snickers chocolate from time to time. He does not have an ambitious wife. He does not have ambitious children. He does not have a taste for expensive signature clothes. All these facts point to the fact that Aquino could never be gobbled up by the germ called corruption. By simply comparing his life with the life of Janet Lim-Napoles, the alleged brains behind the P10 billion pork barrel fund scam, one can immediately see Aquino will never be corrupt. So why demand for his ouster when he is not engaged in corrupt practices? These my friends are the reasons why the numbers attending anti-pork barrel protests are dwindling. •• (Reactions at jelbacon@ yahoo.com or at jelbaconii@ gmail.com.

endeavor in adhering to the scientific activities they are preoccupied with. It is common for intellectual with the statement of “publish or perish” as the slogan for scientists with research publication. Research and findings which are not published will not be read by public, the world scientists. But, research and findings which are published will be beneficial for all human beings in the world. People can read the results of the results and they can make themselves updated. In such instances, research and publication is a must. Without publication all intellectuals will perish for their works cannot be seen by other intellectuals throughout the world. The most important thing to be paid attention is plagiarism. This bad attitude must be avoided by the intellectuals in research and publication. So far, there has been polemic dealing with plagiarism. In scientific communities, the members are always updated with the knowledge of research and methodology. By involving in certain scientific communities, the intellectuals can replicate the methodology and quoting the previous creator of such methodology. Being open and honest in quoting other’s ideas is a must. This quoting habit deals
with the previous ideas and findings of research. Committing plagiarism is prohibited. It is a bad conduct for intellectuals. In Indonesia, for example, the lecturers who commit plagiarism will be punished by the directorate general of higher education. They can be even fired from their position. Therefore, in this country, the hot topic until recently is about the ways of how to avoid plagiarism. Some intellectual forums have been busy discussing this serious topic. To avoid this, intellectuals should get involved in scientific com munities. Therefore, by joining some activities in scientific communities, all intellectuals will be much knowledgeable. They will be updated with present knowledge and science development. Trainings on research writing is also important. Therefore, PAIR and IAMURE have conducted some trainings dealing with research and journal publication. This training is intended to provide the participants, intellectuals, with knowledge of research writing and journal publication. •• Dr. Djuwrai is editorial member of IAMURE research journals; he is a director of language laborator y, STIE Perbanas Surabaya, Indonesia.
Many wondered why the numbers of anti-pork rally participants held Friday last week at the heart of Makati’s business district have greatly dwindled. The question being raised now is whether the anti-pork pork people this early have lost steam already in their fight against this government allocation believed by many as source of corruption. To recall, the first antipork rally dubbed Million People March held in Luneta Park on Aug. 26 drew over a hundred thousand participants. In fact, other observers say that during the rally’s peak, some 300,000 converged at its venue. Sadly, however, the second Million People March against pork Friday last week in Makati drew less than 3,000 participants only. Have the people lost steam in fighting against pork and its causal result which is corruption? This is now the question begging for answers. But from where I sit, I surmise the substantial decrease in numbers, actually I believe the decrease during Friday’s rally in Makati made that activity insignificant and of no value as far as political pressure is concerned, lies in the fundamental rationale of the political act itself.
A deeper view Jesse E.L. Bacon II A I have been challenging everyone in internet forums where I am a part of, may I also challenge you my dear readers to ask your congressional district representatives if the hated pork barrel allocation can still be found in the 2014 national budget that the House of Representatives recently approved. The answer to this query will explain why people are losing steam against the pork barrel. If it is not in the 2014 national budget anymore, what is there to protest against? But if it is still there, could we possibly say that there is a change of heart on the part of the people because they now accepted the pork barrel fund as necessary? I personally doubt about the second point I am raising above because I know the pork barrel fund had already been abolished in the 2014 national budget in consonance with the people’s
