Lawyer questions Oro dad’s change of residency
By MARK FRANCISCO Staff member
A furious James Judith was shocked upon learning that his arch-political opponent outgoing Councilor President Elipe has filed his candidacy for Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) member of Misamis Oriental. Judith, who challenged Elipe’s changing of residency from the second district to the first district of Cagayan de Oro City, dubbed Elipe’s latest stunt as a “mockery of Philippine laws” and vowed to contest his candidacy before the court. In 2013, Elipe and Judith belonged to the same second legislative district of Cagayan de Oro City together. That year, Elipe ran under PaDayon Pilipino and won. Judith ran under Liberal Party and lost. He would eventually

CAGAYAN de Oro City–– Suspended Iligan Mayor Celso Regencia, who was named as principal suspect in the December 11, 2014 ambush of Iligan Rep. Vicente Belmonte, has surrendered to authorities Monday morning, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) said. NBI regional agent in charge Alex Caburnay said Regencia surrendered to officials of the Iligan City Jail Monday morning ending almost two-months of hiding after a court issued warrants of arrest against him and ten others.
“I commend the decision of the mayor to trust our judicial system by submitting himself to the jurisdiction of the court,” Caburnay said. The Regional Trial Court Branch 44 in Initao, Misamis Oriental issued the warrants for three counts of murder and six counts of frustrated murder against Regencia; his bodyguard, Police Officer 3 Alfeo Arnoco, Amado Baller, Rogelio Pitos Sr., Romeo Suganob, Peehay Capanpagan, Julito Oros Ansad, Dodo Silvano See hiding, page A11
Security tightens in tourist spots in Northern Mindanao By CRIS DIAZ Executive Editor
CAMP ALAGAR, Cagayan de Oro City––Security details have been tightened in known tourist spots in Northern Mindanao to secure domestic and foreign tourist in the region, a top
police official said here. Pol. Chief Supt. Lyndel Desquitado, the police regional director in Northern Mindanao, said that he has ordered the tightening of security in known tourist destinations to preempt possible kidnapping of domestic and foreign tourist
in the region. Desquitado cited the kidnapping of three foreigners and a Filipina in a posh resort in Samal Island, a tourism hub, 46 kilometers southeast of Davao City last Sept 21, 2015. He said that there are a number of known tourist
spots in Northern Mindanao where both foreign and domestic tourist visit throughout the year. Desquitado also mentioned the annual “Lansones Festival” in the island province of Camiguin in Northern Mindanao in October as one of the tourist
attractions in the region. He said that the regional police command has already sent a contingency force to augment the security details of Camiguin. Aside from sending additional police personnel in identified tourist See TOURIST, page A11

Wordtext Systems, Unify launch Unified Communications software MANIL A -- Wordtext Systems, Inc. (WSI) and Unify on Friday launched Openscape Business Unified Communications (UC Solution), a software from Germany that allows the efficient communication flow through most gadgets. Jeffrey Garay, product manager for WSI, said in a statement, “it effectively makes everyone in the organization available for communication through the
use of BYOD (bring your own device) such as smart phones, tablets, laptop, and PCs. You can access your email, voice mail, and fax on any device.” The software will provide a communications platform for a company’s employees at any time and any place. Unify added it will “accelerate team productivity, improve customer service and dramatically reduce communications costs.”
Garay said the software could provide instant messaging or chat, conduct web-conferences, web collaboration with presentation, file sharing and white boarding. Unify said OpenScape Business could slash up to 90 percent of conferencing costs and reduce voice call costs by up to 30 percent with voice over IP. The company added the maintenance for the
software is simple and uncomplicated. For the companies that have other existing systems, the two firms said it could still be used as OpenScape could still work on top of it. WSI president Juan Chua said, for his part, that “WSI is eager to bring Unify’s OpenScape Business solution to Philippine companies searching for innovative ways to cut
communication costs and achieve seamless workforce mobility.” The two companies have partnered to bring the software to the Philippine market. Unify managing director Daniel Mountstephen added that they see a lot of potential for the solution in the country, adding “our partnership with WSI simplifies the deployment and delivery of cost-saving
enterprise voice and UC across enterprises.” WSI is a local IT distributor that provides IT solutions and services to businesses. Meanwhile, Unify is a Munich-based global communications software and services company. It was established out of the engineering DNA of Siemens AG and currently operates in 60 countries around the world. (PNA)
MACTAN, Cebu -- Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) member economies’ transportation ministers supported the initiative of the Philippines to
promote inclusive mobility in the region. In the joint statement adopted during the 9th APEC Transportation Ministerial Meeting (TMM) here, APEC
economies pushes for the establishment of Inclusive Mobility Framework introduced by the Philippines. The Joint Ministerial Statement will be endorsed
to APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting in November. “Recognizing that improving mobility increases people’s productivity, and, results to the acceleration of economic growth, we endorse the initiative on creating an Inclusive Mobility Framework for the APEC region,” the Joint Ministerial Statement read. “It is envisioned to pave way for development of projects, programs, activities and transport planning mechanisms to address the transport needs of all individuals, especially those of the most vulnerable members of the society, including persons with disabilities, older people, women, children and students, and such groups,” the APEC transportation ministers further noted. Department of Transportation and Communications Secretary Joseph Abaya, who also chaired the 9th TMM, mentioned that APEC member economies should ensure transportation services and facilities are accessible and convenient to the public, particularly to those with unique needs. Earlier, DOTC Assistant Secretary Sherielysse Bonifacio said the Philippines will be a benefactor in pushing the inclusive mobility initiative. “I think we will be mostly a benefactor, considering that it’s not, our

CAGAYAN de Oro City–– Misamis Oriental Governor Yevgeny “Bambi” Emano and other Padayon Pilipino’s candidates trooped to the Commission on Election (Comelec) Provincial Office on Monday (October 12), the start of the filing of Certificates of Candidacy (COCs) for the 2016 elections, to file their COCs. Before proceeding to the Comelec office, Emano and his partymates attended a mass at the Fatima Cathedral along Velez Street, and sought benediction through three priests who celebrated the early morning mass attended by mostly Padayon Pilipino candidates, and Capitol employees. Incumbent Vice Governor Joey Pelaez, who is seeking re-election, led the candidates for board members of the two districts,
namely, Susan Lagbas, wife of slain Board Member Roldan Lagbas; Jerry Khu, Jeremy Pelaez, Rey Moreno, and Gopaldas Motoomull for the first district, and Nancy Madjos, Mercy Grace Acain, Prexy Elipe and Peter Elman for the second district. Surprisingly, instead of eight candidates per district, Padayon Pilipino party fielded only five for each. For Congress, Padayon Pilipino fielded the brother of Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Oscar Moreno (LP), Dr. Rey Moreno, for the first district and Agusto Baculio for the second district. Padayon Pilipino, (Move on Filipino) organized sometime in 1988 was accredited by the Commissions on Elections (Comelec) as a political party in 2013. Emano and his party line-up members walked the main thoroughfares, along with their supporters, from the chapel See COMPLETE, page A11

LP’s bombshell to shock Cagayanons ONE could notice that the Liberal Party (LP) has held various meetings in Cagayan De Oro City in the latter part of September and early October. There was that LP Mindanao-wide meeting in one of the posh hotels in the city where the LP focused on the candidates for the province of Misamis Oriental. In the early part of October, the LP again met in Cagayan De Oro City, where the party members seemed to revalidate early decisions in the September meeting. Of course, there is nothing unusual in the meetings. After all, the political season heightens every minute of the day as the excitement of filing of the certificate of candidacy comes. Anyway, what gives? Those LP conventions and meetings in Cagayan De Oro City were sending a cryptic message, which only those who are akin of the workings of the local politics could probably detect. Take note: The LP conventions and meetings did not categorically talk about the official LP line up in Cagayan De Oro City. It discussed only the LP ticket in Misamis Oriental, which Rep. Pedro Unabia is the
party Chairman. In all those meetings and conventions, there were no pronouncements or declarations of the LP standard bearer in Cagayan De Oro City. What does it mean? Did Rep. Rufus Rodriguez tells the people that he (Rufus) is the official LP candidate in Cagayan De Oro City? Maybe yes, maybe no. However, let us take a second look on the unfolding political events in the city for the past months. At the time, when City Mayor Oscar Moreno had been already short of officially declaring his running mate for the mayoral post, Rodriguez suddenly declared his running for the mayoral contest.
As we have written many times in the past, Moreno was moving “heaven and earth” to get Jocelyn “Bebot” Rodriguez, the younger sister of Rufus, as his Vice Mayor. The idea is for Moreno to get some political hold of the city’s second district. The idea of getting Bebot is for Moreno to enjoy the supporters of the Rodriguez in the second district. The fact that Moreno has no political following in the second district, other than a few interest groups, the assurance of support by the Rodriguez would provide a big boosts of Moreno’s candidacy. Thus, for Moreno, the announcement of Rodriguez to run for Mayor was a shocking consequence. Did the LP dictate Rodriguez to run for Mayor in Cagayan De Oro City? Is it true that the LP has finally scrapped Moreno as its standard bearer in the city? Is this the reason why Rodriguez is adopting Cong. Rolando Uy as their candidate for Congress in the city’s first district? Remember that Rolando Uy is with the LP political party. Adopting Lando Uy as a candidate by the Rodriguez camp appears

back to our usual selves of ordinary animals. Why are we so stupid to even think of destroying our only world? Have we gone insane, plain stupid and mentallyderanged that we have to commit mass suicide for no good reason? Did we forget that God sent us to this world to multiply and enjoy life, but what we are doing is playing with extreme lust, jealousy, envy and stupidity? We hold fire in our hands unmindful it will amount
Think A Minute
Jhan Tiafau Hurst
2 days to never worry about
to self-destruction and total annihilation of our race. Some scientists are foolish. Instead of promoting friendship and understanding, they try to prove their skill and indulge in playing with fire at the expense of humanity. Don’t we ever realize that if we start world war three, we destroy our world and life? And that include the future of our generations and everything that pertains to mankind? Why so cruel of ourselves and indulge in such crazy adventures that spell nothing but destruction? I am so perplexed by the actuation of some countries in having a race to destroy life. Why don’t they discover things that would cure or treat major incurable illnesses and study things to promote life and civilization? Why not send those billions of cash to produce things that would
THINK a minute. Did you know there are two days you never need to worry about? The first day was yesterday. It’s simply impossible to change the past. Yesterday is gone… forever. There is nothing any of us can do to bring it back, especially by worrying about it. So whatever mistakes, problems, or hurts we had yesterday, we’ve got to stop worrying about them. We cannot undo what’s already done, nor take back what we’ve already said, only ask forgiveness. Hopefully we learn our lessons from yesterday’s mistakes. But then, let it go! Life goes on, so we’d better go with it. The other day we never need to worry about is tomorrow. None of us can control or know everything that might happen tomorrow. We don’t even know whether or not we’ll still be here! What’s going to happen will happen whether we worry about it or not. So we’re left with only one day that we can actually do anything about: today. As the saying goes: “The past is history, tomorrow’s a mystery, so today is all we have. It’s a GIFT, that’s why it’s called the PRESENT.” All we have is right now, and today has enough problems, responsibilities, and worries of its own. The last thing we need is to pile up yesterday’s and tomorrow’s problems on top of today’s! No wonder some people are stressed out with even physical problems and sicknesses. Remember, if you don’t bury your worries, they could bury you! This is why Jesus Christ taught us not to worry

‘Law’ hits Jun Amante for watershed rehab inaction By PAT SAMONTE, Caraga Regional Editor
BUTUAN City--Agusan del Norte Representative Lawrence “Law” Fortun put to task this city’s administration led by Mayor Ferdinand “Jun” Amante, Jr. for lack of serious efforts in the preservation, protection, and rehabilitation of the Taguibo Watershed, the primary source of potable water of some 300,000 population. In a speech before members of the Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants – Butuan CityAgusan del Norte Chapter and the Association of Certified Public Accountants in Mindanao at the Balanghai Hotel and Convention Center here last October 8, Fortun lamented “We have yet to see a serious implementation of the reforestation and rehabilitation programs and support to the efforts of non-government organizations and people’s organizations like the Save the Taguibo Watershed Network.” The lawmaker posed the questions: “As of present, do we still have a pro-active Environment and Natural Resources Council? Do we seriously implement the Butuan City Watershed Code?” According to the young solon, instead of focusing their attention to the city’s serious concerns, “our honorable local leaders are preoccupied in legitimizing the mining operations in Barangay Maibu of the city. We have suffered enough from consuming too much without sacrificing a little. Perennial flooding and loss of potable water are but two problems with staggering impact. We say enough!” Fortun recalled that before leaving this city’s Sanggunian as vice-mayor and presiding officer to assume his new post as congressman in 2013, he had already put in place “a solid policy framework for our watershed that has to be continued over the course of time by the local government unit. It needs genuine commitment, serious advocacy instead of mere rhetorics and superficial display.” The lawmaker stressed that he gave importance to Taguibo Watershed because of its “critical condition” and the people’s need for a sustainable potable water source. He principally sponsored the Butuan City Watershed Code in the city council after assuming office as vice mayor in 2010. He noted that funds were annually appropriated to and exhausted by a body
called Environment and Natural Resources Council (ENRC) which never really convened. “Together with well-meaning members of the academe and civil society, we reconvened and activated the ENRC pursuant to DENR Administrative Order No. 30-1992,” Fortun said. Fortun said he assumed the chairmanship of the council and, with members from the local government unit, Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Department of Education, Armed Forces of the Philippines, Philippine National Police, Father Saturnino Urios University (FSUU), the Sangguniang Kabataan, non-government organizations, and other stakeholders, placed among its agenda the preservation, protection, and rehabilitation of the Taguibo Watershed, and came up with an initial draft of a proposed ordinance
for watershed management that led to the successful passage of the Butuan City Watershed Code. As a congressman, Fortun strived for the coverage of the Taguibo Watershed in the National Greening Program (NGP) during the deliberations for the 2014 Budget. “Since the start of the NGP in 2010 the Taguibo Watershed was never covered. With the cooperation of FSUU, Butuan City Water District, DENR, our office, and people’s organizations, the Taguibo Watershed was covered for the first time in 2014 with initial inclusion of over 500 hectares.,” he said. “Perhaps, we may not totally encapsulate the value of our watershed, but what we know is that
our watershed is as important as sustaining our lives, because after all, water is life,” Fortun emphasized. Fortun made it clear: “Our potable water is at danger, and if we continue to render little attention to this real problem, we might witness a waterless Butuan not for months, but for years.” “Politicizing too much the ecological crisis has lost nature in the human ecology discourse. The narratives of the watershed have seen less dramatization in the consciousness of individuals as a real impending ecological crisis, and instead simplistically transposed the same as political change and campaign promise chronically Fortun unfulfilled,” Fortun added.

Mindanao CSOs, academe call on legislators to pass BBL DAVAO City--Members of civil society organizations and the academe in Mindanao have called on legislators to abide by their “solemn duty to legislate and enact laws and to transform themselves as peace builders and not as ordinary lawmakers” in legislating the Bangsamoro Basic Law. They said Mindanaobased CSOs will continue to lobby legislators from Mindanao in particular to attend sessions in the House of Representatives to ensure quorum so that the deliberations on the BBL could proceed and ensure its eventual passage. “We call on them to consider the common good and not for self-interests,”
said Atty. Romeo Cabarde, chair of Ateneo de Davao University’s Community Engagement and Advocacy at a media forum conducted concurrently with the launching of the Peace Photo Exhibit entitled “Peace Now! Mindanao” at SM City Davao on September 28. He said that “they must consider that the Bangsamoro Basic Law is no ordinary legislation as this is a result of seventeen years of negotiation and is representative of the Bangsamoro people’s struggle for self-determination.” Cabarde said they consider a BBL to be meaningful and acceptable for all if “it … recognize(s) the right of the Bangsamoro people’s right to self-determination and

must be consistent with what has been agreed upon in the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro.” He also said CSOs believe the BBL should reflect vested powers and benefits not less than what the existing laws already gave to the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao. “They (should) be given genuine political autonomy and (should) not to be treated as an ordinary local government unit, which is consistent with the Constitution.” Cabarte said.

Food security to suffer most in longer, stronger El Niño THE El Niño weather will bring drought to many of the country’s food baskets, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) warns. Pagasa’s Rainfall Outlook for October 15 to June 2016 forecasts that 20 percent of the country will likely experience drought and dry spells by the end of October. Many of the areas affected by drought are major sources of high value crops like corn, rice and fruits and vegetables: Isabela, Quirino, Aurora, Quezon, Camarines Norte and Davao Oriental. The forecast comes from Pagasa’s Climate Monitoring and Prediction Section, Climatology and Agrometeorology Division. It defines drought as three consecutive months of way below normal rainfall conditions. That is, average rainfall observed has been reduced by more than 60 percent. The drought outlook is based on Pagasa analysis of observed rainfall from January to September and forecast rainfall until the end of October. For example, all of Panay, including Guimaras, will have “way below normal” rainfall this October. Dry spells will occur in Bataan, Tarlac, Zambales, Cavite, Sorsogon, Antique, Western Samar, Compostela Valley, Sarangani and

Maguindanao. Dry spells occur when rainfall has been reduced by 21 percent to 80 percent for two consecutive months. Dry conditions––two consecutive months of less than 21 percent to 80 percent of the average rainfall––are expected in Batanes, Abra, Benguet, Ifugao, Kalinga, Mountain
Province, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union, Cagayan, Nueva Vizcaya, Pampanga, Batangas, Laguna, Rizal, Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro, Romblong, Albay, Masbate, Aklan, Guimaras and Iloilo. By December, drought and dry spells will affect 69 percent of the country. Drought will hit the
provinces of Abra, Benguet, Ilocos Sur, La Union, Pangasinan, Nueva Vizcaya, Quirino, Bataan, Nueva Ecija, Pampana, Tarlac, Zambales, Aurora, Cavite, Laguna, Rizal, Quezon, Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro, Romblon, Camarines Norte, Sorsogon, Aklan, Antique, Guimaras, Iloilo, Sarangani and Ma-
guindanao. And it will get worse before it gets better. By April 1, drought will affect 85 percent of the country, Pagasa says in its latest update on the El Niño weather sent to Malaya yesterday. By the end of April it will get a little better when only 79 percent of the country is forecast to have drought
conditions. By the end of June, major rice and vegetable-growing provinces will still be affected by drought: Pangasinan, Bataan, Pampanga, Tarlac, Zambales, Cavite, Albay, Camarines Sur, Northern Samar and Western Samar. The dry period during a strong El Niño is “likely to strengthen” before the end of the year and may last even until June, Pagasa says. By January 2016, much of the country will still have “way below” normal rainfall. “Near normal” conditions will return in May yet. Dr y conditions will likely affect most parts of the country from October 2015 until April 2016. According to PAGASA, rainfall of less than 40 percent of rainfall is “way below” normal; 41 percent to 80 percent is “below normal.” Near normal is rainfall from 81 percent to 120 percent. Beyond that is “above normal”. A significant reduction in rainfall over most of the country is predicted beginning October lasting until April 2016. It will be slightly warmer than the average temperature. Until June next year, only four to eight tropical cyclones may develop and enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility; two to five of them are expected until December. SciencePhilippines

There is no late for God T he G ospel of J e sus Christ (October13, 2015-Tuesday) Matthew 18:1214-How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and went into the mountains, and seek that which is gone astray? And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiced more of that [sheep], than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. Even so it is not the will of your
Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish: This gospel reminds us about the big love of God to each one of us. Why? In Ezekiel 18:23-have I any “pleasure” at all that the wicked should die? said the Lord GOD: [and] not that he should return from his ways, and live? Take note, feast will be done in heaven if one soul is repented. Are you a lost sheep? See the goodness of God for you becuasze he will
celebrate if you will come back to him. You are very valuable to him no matter what. You are great for him because you were created out of his amazing love. You are born to be happy on this earth and can enjoy the beauty of this planet earth. Remember, God forgives you always because he knows your weaknesses.

Encouraging students to appreciate Education By Genilyn L. Mercado, Ph.D. Teacher – III Natubo Elementary School
The first thing that should be taught on a child while starting school is to appreciate learning. This is also a main responsibility given to teachers. True, it is challenging but appreciation of learning is one of the most effective strategies in order for a child to learn effectively as well. Basic things come off successful if it is drafted and talked about. So, teachers must talk to children how important education is. He should emphasize what are its roles in their lives and how come it would be useful for them and in the near future. Most of the times, making students understand the idea behind the action is the best thing
in order for a plan to work out and target results could be achieved. Posting that everything is a challenge to them is also a way to encourage them to appreciate learning. Learning is like playing a Snake and Ladder board game where overcoming the maze requires critical thinking, wise decision-making and careful move. Educating and learning are both very long maze. Explaining students the way of learning will make them decide to project lessons as challenge, amidst the thought that it could be fun at times. However, it is also important to express to them that learning need not to be pressuring. Inspiring students to beat
their personal best is also helpful. Some learning tasks, like memorizing the multiplication table or a list of names, are simply not interesting themselves. Teacher must generate motivation by encouraging students to compete against themselves. It also do good when a teacher presents deep subject that could rise interest and deep conversation. This kind of discussion open minds and encourage analysis. It is always good for students to explore and discover more than what they want to learn. Enticing students to see education as an important thing is truly important in order for educating and successful learning to take place.
love: therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee. Therefore, love God as your gratitude to Him. Allow God to hold you in order that you will not be lost along your journey in life. God wants you to be with him all the times. God wants you to believe to him in spite of your different trials and sufferings. God wants you to believe that his love is bigger than your mistakes in life. God wants you to know that you are not yet late to repent.
There is no late for God. The new life that you have is found only in God. God never counts the long years that you had wasted to nonsense things but he is very particular the new life that you are journeying. God gives you the freedom already since birth and use that freedom to do the right thing only supposedly: Printing paid by: Neneth Ranoa - Bobong Balino- Edith Ranoa, PhDTony Jordan – Cagayan De Oro: My new number:
K to 12 Basic Education Program By Lorna Natinga Saldon Teacher – III Bansarvil National High School
In line of meeting educational needs of young Filipinos, Department of Education implements different programs. These are created also to improve the access of learning and to patch up problems that could hinder Filipino kids in attaining quality education and be successful in the future. The country is now implementing the K to 12 Basic Education program. It is a product of a belief that a twelve years of learning is an adequate
number of years to master basic education. Before K to 12 has been implemented, Philippines is just one of few countries worldwide that implements a 10-year basic education cycle. Further, an improvement to education system in the Philippines means a reconstruction that would solve most loopholes in the old system. This change also means that training will practically be aligned with what is really the needs of students in the country. For

example K to 12 has Technical-Vocational Livelihood track that would train students with basic competencies that would help them in the future, either they will continue for tertiary education or decide to go into employment. K to 12 enhances the learning of every Juan dela Cruz, which will be his tool to be successful. K to 12 targets to produce better-trained graduates who could be globally competitive. That is K to 12 Basic Education program. It is truly beneficial to Filipinos and the future generation.
The Importance of Assignments to Pupils By Vilma M. Remoroza Teacher III Salawagan Central Elementary School Salawagan, Quezon, Bukidnon
Lesson plan is consider as the bible of the teachers. It has five parts. Assignment is one and written in the last part. It is the specific task or work assigned to the learners. If given more importance it motivates the learners to study and learn their lessons independently without the presence of their mentors outside the four corners of their classrooms. In addition, as assignment plays significant role to the pupils on their academic development if it is well planned and given proper attention. But how to motivate
pupils to do their assignments? As teachers, the facilitators of learning, we should also give importance the mentioned part of the lesson plan. As early as the beginning of the classes it should be thoroughly explained to the learners that assignment is one basis in computing grades. During the first Homeroom PTA meeting teachers must impart to the parents that the best and easiest way to get grades is by motivating and helping their child/children in doing the assigned task. In doing so, it can make the learners feel that their
parents are concern of their studies. Teachers should refrain in giving long and very difficult assignment that requires the pupils to burn a midnight candle just to look and find answers of the given assigned task. Pupils who got highest scores should be rewarded by giving praises for them to keep the good works. Those who got low scores and didn’t have any should be given more encouragement to have next time. Assignment must be properly checked and recorded by the teacher so that the learners can feel and instill to their minds how importance assignment is.
Transforming values inside the class By Lucia E. Peligro Master Teacher – I East City Central School
People’s lifestyle is changing. It is brought about the improvement caused by modern technologies. It is a fact that advancement has caused good and beneficial things. However, there are matters that have been negatively affected by technology such as people’s attitude. This has changed
as well. In the negative side, the use of gadgets has taken away users’ values. Thus, subjects such as Values Education should be given with utmost importance. This subject is so much important for at young age. It is encouraged that parents and teachers should input to children the posi-

tive and worthwhile values in order to assist them in building and strengthening personal and social skills and responsibilities. It is not just that. Even teachers who are not majoring on Values Education could contribute in enriching values among students. Values Education should be everywhere. Like for example in English, giving readings that talk about being an obedient child, honest student or the like and asking for reflections are few form of molding students who are coiled with values. Tou g h t hou g h , but schools should give their best beat in instilling values as a child meets the challenges of the changing world.

about yesterday or tomorrow. Jesus said: “Who can add a single hour to his life by worrying! Don’t worry about tomorrow. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Live just one day at a time.” So all you have to do is take care of today. Make sure you’re doing your very best in your responsibilities and relationships: that your heart is right with your Maker and other people. Do all you can and then do a little more: don’t worry about it! Because as long as you’re living Jesus’ way in a daily personal relationship with Him, you know for sure you’ve got nothing to worry about. But if today you’re not ready to die and face your Maker, you’ve got everything to worry about! So right now won’t you ask Jesus to forgive you for your past wrongs and living your own way. Then ask Him to take complete charge of your heart and lifestyle from this day on. That’s the only way you can start living His way all the time and be absolutely sure you have nothing to worry about. Just Think a Minute.

e nt e r t ai n e v e r yon e around the globe? Is living in extreme peace and tranquility not better than existing in danger and explosions? Why can’t powerful and wealthy countries lead towards progress and peace for everyone instead of working for the weapons that promotes war? No matter how stupid we may be, we must preserve life and utmost peace for all people. We live on borrowed life on this beautiful earth and we must aspire to preserve love for one another and let peace rule the world. Our creator will be happy by such relationship rather than use our minds to destroy ourselves for no reason at all but plain foolishness. Let us let the rule of the Almighty prevail and save humanity from utter destruction by way of lust and envy. So nice to embrace peace and enjoy the cool atmosphere of our world in the midst of affections towards all men. Let us make smiles and understanding over and above all things on the surface of this planet and end our lives the natural way with contentment and happiness.

to be another message that Rodriguez could be the official LP standard bearer in the city. Is this the reason why the Mindanaowide LP convention and meeting in the city did not mention about Moreno? Although Moreno attended these meetings, the LP did not say anything about his status in the political party. On the other hand, the LP has declared Rep. Pedro Unabia as the Chairman of the LP in Misamis Oriental! Anyway, the filing of the

to the Comelec office, some 200 meters away. After filing of the COC, they all proceeded to the Capitol ground for a brief gathering. Emano, said that they filed the COC earlier because it is nevertheless the same to file earlier and later. The Comelec has set the filing of COC starting Monday (October 12) until 5 p.m. Friday (October 16). Villanueva Town Mayor Julio Uy (LP-NUP) is expected to challenge Gov. Emano. Moreno’s bro runs as congressman in Bambi’s ticket A brother of Mayor Oscar Moreno, who preceded the seat now occupied by Governor Emano, will be challenging first district Rep. Peter Unabia’s reelection bid. Dr. Moreno is one of the lesser known of the Moreno siblings but has made headlines the past years for constantly criticizing his more popular elder brother. It was not known at this point the cause of their bickerings but Dr. Moreno has served the province of Misamis Oriental for the
past three years as a surgeon under Misor Cares, the flagship health program of Emano. Both Emano and Dr. Moreno, along with the whole provincial PaDayon Pilipino slate, filed their candidacies yesterday morning at the provincial Comelec office less than an hour after it opened. Emano said Moreno can help bring voters to the PaDayon Pilipino fold this May 2016 because of name recall. Moreno’s elder brother Oscar used to be the congressman for three terms in that same district. Unabia has successfully defended his term in 2013 and it is expected that it would be an uphill battle for Dr. Moreno to unseat him. In 2013, the physician ran and lost as Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) member in the said district. In contrast, Unabia clinched a second term with no challenger that year. Things are also brewing up in Gingoog City. Two of Unabia’s staunch supporters, Gingoog City Vice Mayor Erick Cañosa and SP member Jabi Bernaldez, have ditched their erstwhile allies to gun for the mayorship and vice mayorship of that city. Cañosa, who is on his last term as vice mayor, is expected to clash with the comebacking mayoral bid of Ruthie Guingona. Incumbent Mayor Marie Guingona, her daughter, is expected to slide down to a vice mayoral bid and take on Bernaldez, who will be Cañosa’s running mate. The Cañosa-Bernaldez tandem will run under PaDayon Pilipino.

and Rogelio Pitos Jr. Arnoco went on AWOL and also went into hiding along with the rest of the suspects. Several gunmen ambushed the convoy of Rep. Belmonte after it left the Laguindingan Airport in Laguindingan, Misamis Oriental en route to Iligan City last December 11, 2014. Three of Belmonte’s bodyguards were killed in the ambush, while the congressman and five others were wounded. Pursuit operations later arrested one of the gunmen identified as Dominador Tumala of Osmena town, Zamboanga del Norte who provided the court with details of the ambush plans and Regencia’s alleged participation. Before he went into hiding, Malacañang on March 2, suspended Regencia for 60 days for alleged abuse of authority after stripping Iligan Vice Mayor Ruderic Marzo of his authority to appoint casual or job order employees at the Sangguniang Panlungsod. Regencia, elected mayor in 2013, had claimed there were “ghost employees” in the legislative branch. The DILG in Northern Mindanao served the order on March 27 and installed Marzo as acting mayor but Regencia sought the intervention of the Court of Appeals in Cagayan de Oro to issue a temporary restraining order. The CA issued a TRO to stop the installation of Marzo after he posted a bond of P100,000. The suspension order was eventually enforced and was supposed to have been lifted on October 27.

become a city legal consultant. In August this year upon learning that Elipe had applied for a change of residency from barangay Gusa to barangay Carmen, Judith immediately contested this and filed a complaint before the Election Registration Board, arguing that no elected official could change residency within his term. Elipe countered this by saying that he was a councilor not just of his own district but of the whole city. But when the councilor, who is also the brother-inlaw of reelectionist Misamis Oriental Gov. Yevgeny Vincente Emano, showed up with the whole PaDayon Pilipino provincial slate and filed his candidacy as SP member from the second district of the province, Judith was shocked. “Bugal-bugal na man ni sa balaod. It is an insult to the electoral process. I will not condone this because as a lawyer, I’m an officer of the court,” Judith said. As of presstime, he is still studying on what complaint to file against Elipe and before which legal body. In defense, Elipe said that the six months’ grace time for candidates and voters to change residencies has not yet elapsed. The next polls will be held in May, thus the last month for candidates to claim residency change would be December.
