Congress is not the real battleground for the BBL Second of a series By BONG D. FABE

CAGAYAN de Oro City-The proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) will be scrutinized for its legality and constitutionality in Congress through an intense

debate. But the groups and individuals supporting the BBL believe that the real battleground is not there, but in the areas included in the proposed Bangsamoro New Political Entity or Bangsamoro Core Territory. The core territory, as defined in Article I, Section

5 of the Framework Agreement of the Bangsamoro (FAB) signed on October 15, 2012, shall consist (a) the present geographical area of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM); (b) 6 municipalities in the province of Lanao del Norte (Baloi,

Munai, Nunungan, Pantar, Tagoloan and Tangkal); (c) 39 barangays in the municipalities of Kabacan, Carmen, Aleosan, Pigkawayan, Pikit, and Midsayap in North Cotabato that voted for inclusion in the ARMM during the 2001 plebiscite; (d) the cities of

Cotabato and Isabela; and (e) all other contiguous areas where there is a resolution of the local government unit or a petition of at least ten percent (10%) of the qualified voters in the area asking for their inclusion at least two months prior to the See real, page 7

Crimes, drugs, traffic woes up in MisOr talk By CRIS DIAZ Executive Editor

M

ISAMIS Oriental–– Crimes, drugs, and traffic woes are among the pressing issues that the members of the provincial board will tackle with counterparts from regional government offices in a committee meeting Wednesday.

Vice Governor Joey Pelaez said that he has invited representatives from the Philippine National Police (PNP), the Land Transportation Office, and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) to a “no holds barred” meeting Wednesday afternoon at the provincial capitol here. “The province wants to know the real situation on the three issues involving criminality, drugs, and traffic problems in the province in order to adopt legislative actions that would concretely address the problem,” Pelaez said. He said the provincial government would also ask the LTO to deputize the municipal police in apprehending traffic violators, particularly public utility

authorized NFA rice dealers in the region. He said that the NFA’s rolling store would primarily serve the 4Ps (Pantawid Pamilya Pilipino Program) beneficiaries whose names are provided by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). The “NFA rolling store” is a joint project of the NFA and DSWD in the region, Marasigan added. He said that NFA has assigned 64 rolling stores in Misamis Oriental and 37 rolling stores in Cagayan De Oro City, where rice are sold at P 27.00 per kilo to P 32.00 per kilo. Marasigan said that the NFA has started deploying the rolling stores in May to cushion the impact of the rising prices of the country’s staple food. Prices of rice in the local market have soared in the past few days from P 40.00 per kilo to P 50.00 for head rice while sugar, cooking oil, and spices like garlic and ginger followed. According to Marasigan, the absence of a law that regulates the prices of staple food such as rice, fish, sugar, milk, and other basic household commodities, made the government helpless in addressing the rising prices of commodities in the country. He said that the NFA has adopted the “rolling store” policy in Northern Mindanao to assure the consumers in the region that the supply of rice in abundant and at lesser cost. He said that about 150,000 bags of imported rice from Vietnam is expected to arrive in the port area of Cagayan De Oro City on Thursday while another vessel loaded with 250,000 bags, also from Vietnam, will dock in the local port here in July. He said that the rice will be distributed throughout the Northern Mindanao region that comprises the provinces of Misamis Oriental, Misamis Occidental, Bukidnon, and the island province of Camiguin. “We are basically targeting the beneficiaries of the 4Ps as the principal beneficiaries of the rolling store policy in cooperation with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD),” Marasigan said. He said that the DSWD provides the list of 4Ps beneficiaries in the areas concerned.

Army to focus on info drive to win peace

By JOEY SEM G. DALUMPINES

CAMP PANACAN, Davao City - A top officer of the 10th Infantry Aguila Division ordered the newlydesignated commanding officer of the 10th Civil Military Operations Battalion to focus more on the information operation as one component in winning the peace in the region. Major General Ariel Bernardo, commander of the 10th ID said information operations is best realized as the soldiers continue to engage with all stakeholders in the delivery of basic services to the communities. He s ai d t h e p e opl e must know the ef for ts of the Armed Forces to reach out to them side by side wit h t he lo ca l gover nment units and the stakeholders. He recalled that the latest Serbisyo Caravan in Barangay Paquibato Proper last June 12 brought in a realization coming f rom a barangay chair who shared that if the activity was done in the area several years before, peace and order could not be a problem in the area. “The convergence for peace and development through a whole of government approach is very important in addressing the people’s concerns on the grassroots level,” Bernardo said. He said that is relevant for all government agencies side by side with the local government to deliver the needed services to people. Bernardo said information operation can do a lot of things in managing

the expectations of the people. “We can manage the people’s reactions, even their problems and grievances as long as we provide them the right information,” he said. Lt. Colonel Norman Zuniga, newly installed commanding officer of the 10th Civil-Military Operations Battalion admitted that the benchmark left by Lt. Colonel Jacob Thaddeus Obligado is indeed very high especially on his effort to take a-whole nation-approach in addressing the com-

mu n i c at i on c a mp a i g n against insurgency. He said he is willing to take the challenge especially with the support coming from all sectors of the society. “I believe we can go and carr y on with the challenge,” Zuniga said. Zuniega took the reins of the 10th CMO Battalion from Lt. Colonel Obligado after his three year stint as commander of the unit with f lying colors and great reviews f rom all stakeholders and his commanders. (PIA 11-Joey Sem G. Dalumpines)

“That was brazen, the gunman did not care to even hide his face, he just walked in and walked out like it’s an ordinary thing,” he said. Duterte assured that the killings would be solved “in due time.” Richard King, a Cebubased businessman who operated the Crown Regency Inn and Vital-C networking here in Davao, was shot dead on the evening of June 12. Witnesses said King was having dinner at the his office in Sobrecary Street with his office mates when the gunman walked in and shot him in the head, and walked away. Duterte said that the recent cases were not linked to syndicates but rather on personal squabbles of the victims. “I don’t think it has an effect (to the business community). (Besides) there

are no kidnapping cases. These are crimes of passion,” he said. The mayor referred to the first two cases where investigations showed the victims were caught in a love triangle. On the case of lawyer Emmanuel Acuña, police suspected his murder was linked to his girlfriend’s exlover, an owner of various businesses in Kidapawan City. On the second case of restaurant operator Ramon Garcia, police arrested a couple who took Garcia hostage and killed him in Malungon, Davao del Sur. Duterte said the male suspect allegedly killed Garcia for thinking it was Garcia who got his girlfriend pregnant. On the case of King, the mayor said the police is investigating the business-

man’s business and personal involvement for leads. “On King, we are looking at many angles. He has a networking (business), we know what is the endgame of that thing. He has businesses and partners that his wife doesn’t know,” Duterte said. He revealed that he got a call from Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama who told him that King was also facing investigation in some cases in Cebu. “I got a call from Mayor Rama. He told me King was his friend. He said this person had a case in Cebu involving a lawyer’s death, and another murder case in Boracay. And here in Davao, he has his own diskarte (approach) on things,” the mayor said. But the mayor thinks the probe on King might take long time to solve, just like the case of Acuña. “Sometimes you may slip away, but you cannot slip away all the time. These hitmen, they will get another job. And just one time, if they get caught, they will squeal,” Duterte said.(davaotoday.com)

Pre-hospital emergency medical care system

The House of Representatives has approved the measure to institutionalize the pre-hospital emergency medical care system in the country. Very laudable indeed that we will soon create a responsive and organized pre-hospital and emergency care system to address emergency cases brought by natural and man-made calamities. “The policy of the State is to protect and promote the right to health of the people and shall endeavour to cultivate and maintain an environment conducive to the practice of prehospital emergency care, maximizing the capability and potential of Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and other prehospital care professionals in the country, and insti-

tute a standard system of pre-hospital emergency medical services in the country. Aside from the development and institutionalization of a prehospital emergency medical service system at the national and local levels, the measure creates a National Pre-hospital Care Council (NPCC) under the Department of Health (DOH). The measure mandates the NPCC to develop internationally accepted standards for the practice of pre-hospital care professions. Pre-Hospital Emergency Care is an independent delivery of pre-hospital emergency medical services by appropriately trained and certified EMTs, usually in a mobile or community set-

Editorial

ting, in full accordance with the National Pre-hospital Emergency Medical Treatment Protocols established by the Council. The NPCC is mandated to supervise, control and regulate the practice of pre-hospital care professionals. In coordination with Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), Commission on Higher Education (CHED), Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) and accredited professional organizations, the NPCC is tasked to prepare, update and maintain a roster of certified EMTs. The measure provides training programs, courses, and continuing education for Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and would be conducted only by the institutions recog-

nized by the TESDA, the Higher Education Institutions (HEI) and the CHED. The measure also mandates the National Telecommunications Council (NTC) to develop a program for the adoption of a National Emergency Telephone Number. The illegal use of the Universal Emergency Telephone Number and the unlawful practice of prehospital emergency medical service shall be penalized. The Council, in coordination with the NTC, the TESDA, the CHED, the PRC and the DOH, shall issue and promulgate the rules and regulations to implement the provisions of the Act. Congratulations for a job well done. The poor and the marginalized sectors in our country will have more in law and in life.

Eradicating poverty

THE Group of 77 developing nations that now number 133 in their last meeting in Bolivia vowed to end poverty that they collectively say is “an affront to human dignity” by 2030. There is no dispute poverty’s being an affront to human dignity thus the need to put an end to it. There is even no need to wait until 2030 to erase poverty from the face of the earth. If poverty can be eradicated next year then why wait for 2030 to put an end to it especially if it is an affront to human dignity? Poverty is indeed an affront to human dignity for it leaves the poor with no other option in life. Having no option in life is best illustrated by the life of Kristil Tejada, the freshman student of the University of the Philippines-Manila who was left with no other choice but end her life when she no longer could continue her studies. Kristil, the eldest child of a taxi driver and housewife, through hard work was able to secure for herself a slot in the very competitive qualifying exams to be in UP-Manila. When she enrolled in the first semester she had to secure a student loan of P5,000 to be admitted. But when she enrolled during the second semester of her first year studies, she was required to pay her P5,000 loan first before she could be granted another loan. Not having the needed amount, she ended up going on leave from her studies against her will. She continued pretending to be a student by attending in the class sessions of those teachers who understood her plight. But when her school identifica-

A deeper view Jesse E.L. Bacon II

“Poverty can never be eliminated if the current world order and international system continues to be worshipped and adored by the developed countries.” tion card was confiscated for not being enrolled that semester, she was forced to stay in their home. With nothing to do and out of desperation for not having any other option in life, the promising student decided to end her life. This is what we mean when we say poverty is not having any option in life. This is very similar also to the garbage collectors who regularly pick up our household garbage. They are exposed to all sorts of disease-carrying bacteria as they do their job of garbage collection but what can they do since they don’t have any option in life? Not having any option in life is the evil with poverty. While others are living luxurious and extravagant lives such as the life of our country’s rich and famous, who according to a World Bank study, number about a hundred families only.

Among the proposals pushed by the G77 nations was a cal for a new world economic order and a fairer international system. Toward this end, they are demanding for the abolition of the UN National Security Council accusing that body of promoting “wars and invasions by imperial powers to appropriate natural resources of invaded countries.” The group is also demanding for the elimination of world hierarchies. Indeed, poverty can never be eliminated if the current world order and international system continues to be worshipped and adored by the developed countries. But the developed countries’ embrace of the current world order and international system should be understood as the necessary evil for them to continue enjoying their privileged status. The current world order, we should remember, is propelled by greed, which is the logic of capitalism. Capitalism as an economic order thrives on greed. It is greed that gives it life. And greed is essentially fed on deprivation. It is by depriving the other countries, in the macro level, of their own human and natural resources that the highly developed countries are able to maintain their economy’s fat bellies.

This could be likened, as I have mentioned in past columns, to a group of 10 people who are about to eat a meal. When meal was served one person ate the shares of eight people leaving the nine others to share among themselves the remaining two shares. The greedy one was able to do the unthinkable because he had to satisfy his fat belly. And he was able to do it by using force and by intimidating the others to agree, even if grudgingly, to his desires. Changing the current world order means dismantling the present economic order that feeds on greed. This greed-inspired and greed-motivated economic order that we popularly know as capitalism needs dismantling if we truly want a new world order. But will the worshipers of capitalism who are the rich and famous of this country and their counterparts all over the world do this? Can they be expected to sell all their properties and give the proceeds to the poor? Can they be expected to have the heart of Saint Francis of Assisi who voluntarily stripped himself of his earthly wealth and had them given to the poor? This is where the problem of the call to eliminate poverty lies. We can never expect the owners of SM, Gaisano, Ayala and Lim Kit Kai malls, for example, and the other giant entrepreneurs to see the light and just give up their properties and have them given to the poor. •• (Reactions at jelbacon@ yahoo.com or at jelbaconii@gmail.com.

Angel: My governance yardstick is majority gets benefit from our efforts By PAT SAMONTE Regional Editor-Caraga

BUTUAN City––Agusan del Norte Governor Maria Angelica Rosedell M. Amante-Matba made it clear in her State of the Province Address on Tuesday, June 17, 2014: “My yardstick of governance is that majority of our people get to benefit from our efforts.” Before a throng of her constituents, including provincial, Cabadbaran City and municipal government officials in Agusan del Norte, guests from the police, military and city council here, Gov. AmanteMatba said her vision of her province is “a picture of a healthy, wealthy and wise populace” and that the “provincial government shall be characterized by dynamism, sincerity and transparency.” A nurse by profession, Amante-Matba stressed that the health of the populace was her administration’s primary concern and that P18 million were devoted to the health requirements of more than 80,000 of the needy including Philhealth coverage of 12,542 families amounting to P11,854,800

as provincial counterpart, 6,000 indigents were provided medical assistance through the Integrated Social Development Assistance Program (ISDAP), medical and dental outreach services to more than 20,000 individuals, mass treatment of 28,000 people and supplemental feeding activities for 10,000 children in farflung areas. She added that the provincial hospitals recorded patient admission of 15,267 in 2013. According to the lady governor, rural health units and barangay health stations in eight areas were upgraded at a total cost of P15 million with the assistance of the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation or Agencia Española Cooperacion y Desarrollo (AECID) and co-implemented with the Department of Health the upgrading of the Agusan del Norte Provincial Hospital at a cost of P15 million. In the realm of education, Amante-Matba reported that her administration had “steadily reduced the gap in classroom shortage: now standing at 145 compared to previous years.” For the benefit of the in-

digenous people (IP), she said 10 IP students were granted scholarships (fiveyear college courses which covers full tuition, board and stipend) and promoted the School for Indigenous Knowledge, Arts and Tradition (SIKAT).

DSWD sets up transitory sites for Zambo standoff survivors

Z A M B OA NG A C it y The City Government has lined up activities for the commemoration of the 3rd Dia de Fundacion de Chabacano, marking the day when the chabacano language first came to being. The day-long activity is set on June 23, Monday kicking off with a parade f rom L edesma Street to Plaza Pershing starting at 7:30am to be participated by national government agencies, City Government departments, schools and barangays. The commemorative program will follow right after the City Hall flag raising ceremony at 8am at Plaza Rizal. Councilor VP Elago, author of Ordinance 374 that sets June 23 every year as Dia de Fundacion de Chabacano, will give a message. Mayor Beng Climaco

will give the inspirational message. In the afternoon, the celebration will start with the mass at 5pm at the For t Pilar Shrine and will be capped by the Concurso de Bandas or battle of the bands at the open stage of Paseo del Mar. Chabacano traces its roots to the laying of the first cornerstone of the Fort Pilar on June 23, 1635. Chabacano “borne out of necessity of an admixture of tribes, races and culture and out of it evolved a distinct language that is predominantly Spanish in origin with at least 60% Espanol and 40% native words and survived to this very day.” The activities are organized by the City Tourism Division under the Office of the City Mayor.

transparency corners and timely updating of plans and programs which guided the province in its developmental directions and investments.” The governor cited the Sangguniang Panlalawigan for passing 124 resolutions and 10 ordinances, particularly the Code of Health and Sanitation and the Code of General Ordinances which she described “were very instrumental in the recognition we received.” Collections for the General Fund reached P628,585,817.49 while disbursement was 80 percent or P487.6 million. Despite a 3-percent increase in collection, Amante-Matba said the province’s dependence

on Internal Revenue Allotment remained high and said, “Much is still needed to be done if we were to attain strong financial capacity.” While at this, Gov. A m a nt e - Mat b a s a i d the Bureau of Internal Revenue contributed to the province’s finances through P106.7 million collection of various taxes. Adding $158 million from exports, she said Agusan del Norte “has demonstrated that she is indeed an active player in strengthening the financial capability of the province.”

In alliance with various stakeholders and agencies last year, the province embarked on tree-planting and covered 1,092 hectares of forest land and produced 300,000 seedlings, the provincial chief executive said. She reported that the National Greening Program distributed more than 20,000 seedlings and developed 1,754 hectares of forest plantation in 2013. The province’s antiillegal logging campaign resulted in the confiscation of 73,000 board feet of illegally-sourced timber which were turned over to the Technical Skills and

Development Authority (TESDA) for fabrication into school tables and chairs for students, she revealed. Mangrove reforestation sites in the province increased to seven with the development of another six hectares in the municipality of Tubay, she said. Seven climate-change resilient infrastructure projects were completed last year at a total cost of P47,300,000 to enhance the province’s disaster prevention, mitigation, preparedness and response, rehabilitation and recovery program, she added. She also mentioned the province’s efforts to maintain and preserve the ecological soundness of the lowlands as it worked for the full implementation of RA 9003 known as the Ecological Solid Waste Management (EWSM) Act, resulting in a P500,000 reward to the municipality of Las Nieves and encouraged other local government units to replicate this success in their jurisdictions. She closed her message with a vow to “train our sight in further improving the quality of life of our people” and “double our efforts in delivering basic services to attain the targets of the millennium development goals.”

plebiscite, only Darapanan accepts the Bangsamoro Basic Law,” she said, as she urged all concerned stakeholders to help campaign for “Yes” in the plebiscite. Copies of the BBL needed After Malacañang transmitted the proposed BBL to Congress as an urgent bill, it is now the role of the President’s legal team to defend it. But Arnado expects no hardline opposition for its passage in Congress given that President Aquino has repeatedly announced his strong support to ending the decades-old conflict in Mindanao and has shown his sincerity in the peace negotiations. The opposition, she said, will come out during the plebiscite with guns a-blazing. “Which is why it is crucial that people, especially in affected areas, must be made to understand the BBL through the conduct of education campaign and public consultations. And we need to be able to read the copy of the draft BBL to be able to do this right,” a participant from the civil society organizations (CSOs) said during the public consultations here. Arnado admitted that “since we do not have a copy of the draft provisions of the BBL we cannot fully appreciate the bill.”

A Mindanawon peacebuilder also echoed the call for Malacañang or the Bangsamoro Transition Commission (BTC) to release a copy of the draft BBL for transparency’s sake. “How can people fully appreciate the BBL and intelligently vote for its ratification when they have not even read it?” asked the peacebuilder who requested not to be named in this report. The peacebuilder said that there is growing fear among CSOs, NGOs and individuals supportive of the peace process that Malacañang might transmit a watered-down version of the draft BBL to Congress. “Baka kinakatay na iyan ngayon sa Malacañang. It is not farfetched to say that the bright boys in Malacañang are now busy creating loopholes and easing the impregnable, unassailable and iron-clad provisions in the proposed law,” the peacebuilder added. Reports last month said that the 15-member BTC, led by Mohagher Iqbal, chief peace negotiator of the MILF, is worried that the govern-

ment is going to water-down the draft BBL and delay its release. But Malacañang, through Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. and Presidential Spokesman Edwin S. Lacierda, said that the Office of the President is studiously reviewing the draft BBL so that when it transmits it to Congress, it will pass legal and constitutional scrutiny. Congress can change BBL Sources closed to the peace negotiations also said that the draft BBL is closely-guarded for now because they don’t want to abort it and avoid a repeat of the Memorandum of Agreement on Ancestral Domain (MOA-AD) which led to a renewed escalation of the armed conflict between the Bangsamoro Islamic Armed Forces (BIAF) and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) after copies of which were leaked to select political personalities in Mindanao. While those who requested for a copy of the draft BBL said they understand this apprehension, they also said that they only want transparency, in light of the far-reaching impact for present and future Mindanawons

and Filipinos this crucial piece of legislation has. “Ngayon pa ba tayo magtatago sa taongbayan na malapit na tayo sa finish line? Huwag naman because from the start, the peace process was closely monitored, watched, followed and reported by the media,” a source who participated in the public consultation on the BBL here said but refused to be identified. Arnado said that Congress has the power to change the draft BBL. “Congress can change it. But politically, will Congress do it? Congressmen know the import of the BBL; the stakes are very high because this is the commitment of the government not just to the Bangsamoro but also to the international community,” she stressed. She said that she believes all congressmen know that this piece of legislation is very critical “because the government is dealing with combatants and they still have their guns.” She urged Congress to adhere to the government’s commitment because “this opportunity may not come again.” (To be continued)

already completed,” she said. Apart from 320 jobs generated from these irrigation projects, productivity in rice reached 53,739 metric tons or 4.0 metric tons per hectare in some areas while corn productivity reached 7.0 metric tons per hectare, she added. Citing data from the Depar tment of Trade, Amante-Matba said 1,332 jobs were generated from other industries last year. She also mentioned the empowerment of 1,586 landless farmers who received 3,091hectares of agricultural land in 2013. “These farmers are now part of the 20,000 Agrarian Reform beneficiaries of Agusan del Norte.” she said. For unified effort in promoting good governance, the province was awarded a SEAL OF GOOD HOUSEKEEPING and a P7-million Peformance Challenge Fund (PCF) package. The awards, the governor said, “were results of our strict observance of COA circulars, prompt preparation of budgets, strict observance of the Procurement Law or RA 9184, full disclosure policies demonstrated among others by consistent postings of financial documents in

conduct of the ratification of the Bangsamoro Basic Law. After Congress passed the BBL, it will be subjected to popular ratification in these areas through a plebiscite to be scheduled next year. Once it is ratified, the ARMM is deemed abolished and the Bangsamoro Transition Authority (BTA) will be established to pave the way for the formal election of the Bangsamoro Government simultaneous with the presidential election in 2016. Lawyer Mary Ann Arnado, secretary-general of the Mindanao Peoples Caucus (MPC) said during the June 3 public consultations on the BBL here that the real battleground is the plebiscite. {Arnado now sits as MPC Council Emeritus/ Adviser after journalist Ryan Rosauro was elected as MPC secretary-general on June 6]. Arnado said that local Moro politicians who are averse to not being in power will surely use money, guns and goons to campaign for its failure in the plebiscite. “Don’t tell me that after the

RESULTS-BASED PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM By Elpidio S. Almonical Head Teacher II

Changes always occurs anywhere and anytime. In the Department of Education, a change is introduced in the way how the performance of employees whether teaching or non teaching personnel are assessed. This is the Results-based Performance Management System (RPMS). It is aimed

to align individual roles and targets with Deped’s direction-the vision, mission and core values. Through RPMS, managers evaluate employee’s performance based on evidences of competencies measured against performance targets agreed upon. At the end of the rating period, the concerned employee is rated based on his/her accomplishments. By the last Friday of June

2014 and first Friday of July, cascading to the field will be done throughout the division. Teachers will know and be oriented with this assessment strategy. Lots of questions are expected thereafter. On the part of the teachers, will RPMS gain positive reaction from them? Are teachers willing to adopt changes? Will this RPMS encourage them

to strive hard to achieve higher performance? Is it the answer to the complain of some teachers about the way how PerformanceBased Bonus was distributed and an answer to the desired quality education for the young boys and girls in school? Will they see it as a fair way of assessing performance? On the other hand, whether positive or nega-

tive reaction the teachers would response, everyone is bound to follow and adopt the changes. In other words, whether they click the like or unlike menu on their mind’s screen RPMS will be implemented this school year. Let us just bear in mind if we live by negative thoughts we can do nothing, but if we think positively achievement lies ahead.

Duty S p e cial G os pel of the day: Matthew3:112(June19, 2014 Thursday) Matthew 3:1-12- Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. And the same John had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey. Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan, and were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins. But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance: And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to [our] father: This gospel reminds us to imitate John the Baptist who introduced Jesus Christ to the audience. Are you proclaiming God to other people? Take note, the primary duty of a genuine Christian is to let Jesus be known to anyone. Therefore, if you will not preach God, you are not a Christian: Printing paid by: Neneth Bobong Balino- Dr. Edith, PhD- Tony Jordan - CDO.

No tax increase next year - Oca Cagayan de Oro City Taxpayers of Cagayan de Oro will heave a sigh of relief as City Mayor Oscar Moreno announced that the City Government will not impose new taxes or increase the current tax rates next year even if the latter proposed a P3.8 billion annual budget for 2015. “We will not raise tax rates. We will not impose new taxes, but we will just collect the right and proper taxes. Tulubagon ko na to raise the money for that (2015 proposed budget). Ako na ang manubag,” firmly said during his first City Mayor’s Annual Report last June 15, 2014, coinciding with the celebration of the 64th City Charter Day. Working with a bigger budget next year if approved by the City Council, Mayor Moreno hopes to hasten up the upgrading of the JR Arch. Romolo V.

The session is organized in partnership with the Private Finance Advisory Network (PFAN), a global organization initiated by the Climate Technology Initiative (CTI) that helps promising businesses find funding for clean energy projects. ITPI’s first project, Primavera Residences, a green mixed-use development in Cagayan de Oro, will be presented as a case study during this session.

FEF suggests other power sources than solar energy MANILA -- The Foundation for Economic Freedom (FEF) urged the Department of Energy (DOE) to consider other alternative solutions which are possible and less expensive rather than solar. ”It has an efficiency rating of only 16 to 20%, which means that most of the time the equipment lies idle,” FEF said in a news release. T h e g r o u p disagrees with the plans of the DOE to increase the solar installation capacity from 50 Megawatts (MW) to 500 MW, basing their argument on the additional charge of 32 centavos per kilowatt hours (kwh) to the electric bills of power consumers. The Foundation stated in a letter to the DOE that it’s unjust

that the summer months of 2015 and 2016, in which the solar panels would be used, would create a huge burden on the Filipino consumers. The letter also noted that the use of solar has higher installation capacity but generates a higher charge of P9.68/kWh, or about half of the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market’s (WESM’s) prices. Through this a r r a n g e m e n t , FEF stated Solar energy developers would enjoy an annual 12 billion PHP, aside from the subsidy for existing installation targets for Renewable Energy (RE) currently at 8 Billion PHP. Also mentioned in the letter, is that the Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) system will create a guaranteed 16 percent per annum for the next 20 years even if the

capital equipment cost would be lowered. The group also stressed that the FIT rates which were calculated two years ago by the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) maybe too high due to the reduction cost for capital equipment. However, the group maintains that they are not in any way against renewables, saying they are just against the high prices of the FIT rates from RE developers. Earlier, DOE Secretary Jericho Petilla has stated that the FIT rate is still being debated in the ERC, while also pointing out that the FIT subsidy was based on the January rates from the WESM and the 9.63 kwh price of solar. Petilla also said that he proposed to the Commission

that the solar plants, which would be commissioned by March 2015, be allowed to charge at a rate of P9.63 kwh. However, for the plants that would be commissioned later, a lower rate is to be expected. ”Now, it will decrease because not everyone can meet 2015. In my estimate, 200-300 will only come in by 2015, if approved by the ERC,” the Secretary said. (PNA)

BIMP-EAGA environment cluster adopts climate change proposal

D

AVAO City - In a bid to make BIMP-EAGA and its people more adaptable to climate change, the sub-region’s environment cluster adopted the proposal of the Philippines to implement a USD 1.2 million project that will build the resilience of local communities and enhance disaster preparedness. Entitled “Building Local Community Resilience in BIMP-EAGA for Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation and Disaster Preparedness,” the project proposal was presented by the Philippines during the 3rd BIMP-EAGA environment cluster meeting held in May in Sandakan, Malaysia. “The proposal’s main thrust is to lessen the impact of climate change, with the prime goal of preventing environmental disasters within the region,” said Janet Lopoz, executive director of the Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA). She said that environmental disasters can be prevented by implementing projects that strengthen disaster risk management and develop efficient response mechanisms in addressing environmental issues within BIMP-EAGA. BIMP-EAGA stands for Brunei Darussalam Indonesia Malaysia the Philippines East ASEAN Growth Area, a key strategy to accelerate social and economic development of less developed areas in participating countries. The Philippine representatives composed of officials from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and MinDA led the presentation of the proposal to the

sub-region’s environment cluster. An EAGA-wide policy on climate change adaptation and mitigation will be formulated based on key outputs of the proposal, including climate changeproofing of infrastructures, resulting in local communities that are more resilient to environmental disasters. The policy will also push for the sustainable management, protection, and utilization of the region’s natural resources. Lopoz stated that within BIMP-EAGA, there is the strong need to address issues among the river basins of each member country, where the rivers flow from water sources to estuaries that lead towards the main bodies of water that surround the sub-region. “Water is a shared resource among all EAGA countries, and our ecosystems are in a way interconnected with each other,” said Lopoz. The project, which will be implemented in a span of three years also incorporates capacity building on humanitarian assistance and disaster response leading to the development of disaster preparedness action plans at the community level. It also aims to strengthen Customs-ImmigrationQuarantine-Security (CIQS) mechanisms for disaster response, and establish resource centers for information sharing on climate change and disaster risk reduction within the four countries of the subregion. Lopoz added that the budget will be spread across 11 critical watersheds and river basins and seven
