CAGAYAN de Oro City–– The police in Valencia City has charged in court a suspect in the November 29 killing of radio commentator Joas Dignos, a commentator of dxGT Radyo Abante in Maramag town. The suspect, identified as Dionisio Daulong, was pinpointed by the witnesses of the murder case. Daulong, who is still at-large, is one of the 21 prisoners who escaped from the city jail last September. Police said the witnesses identified Daulong as the last person to shoot Dignos

and make sure that he was dead. There were four gunmen and two motorcycle drivers who attacked Dignos. Daulong was also tagged as one of the leaders of the September jailbreak.

The newly-formed group is composed of experts from Crime Laboratory, Criminal Investigation and Detection Group, PNP Investigation Unit, and Intelligence branch of the provincial headquarters. “Since the task group’s sole assignment is to conduct in-depth investigation to identify the real suspects behind the killing, we have

to unify efforts so that we can consolidate our findings,” Magsalay said. Dignos was reportedly gunned down by motorcycle-riding men along Sayre Highway in Valencia City around 9:30 p.m. Friday, Nov 29.

Fortun strengthens Amante ties; bares accomplishments By PAT SAMONTE Regional Editor-Caraga BUTUAN City––Giving value to his long-drawn friendship and political partnership with Butuan City Mayor Ferdinand M. Amante, Jr. was important for Rep. Lawrence Lemuel H. Fortun that he chose a recent meeting with newlyelected and re-elected barangay chairmen to cement and further strengthen the relationship. In that meeting, Fortun revealed his performance during his first 100 days as representative of the First Congressional District of Agusan del Norte which included: - The 1st District of Agusan del Norte will have the biggest share of infrastructure projects in Caraga Region; - Infrastrucuture projects proposed by the City of Butuan and Las Nieves, Agusan del Norte as well as his district’s different barangays, are already in the 2014 national budget; -A P22-million housing

AMANTE-FORTUN PARTNERSHIP. The friendship and political partnership between Rep. Lawrence Fortun (right) and Mayor Ferdinand Amante Jr. (left) are seen not to wane but become stronger and more formidable. They are shown here as they discuss notes before a faceoff with their rivals at the Father Saturnino Urios University gymnasium prior to the May, 2013 mid-term elections. Mindanao Daily News Photo by Pat Samonte project in Barangay Baan Km. 3 here are in next year’s national budget; -A total of 171 elementary and high school class-

rooms on top of additional ects are in the pipeline; -Budgeted are scholarteaching positions have been allocated for his dis- ship grants to poor but deserving students; trict; -Livelihood programs -Various irrigation projfor constituents. The neophyte solon said that among the big ticket items he pushed and successfully included in the national budget was the reforestation of more than 700 hectares of the Taguibo

Watershed under the National Greening Program (NGP) for 2014. Known for his advocacy for environment protection and conservation, Fortun hoped his proposed law under HB 00861 to prevent and control pollution from ships, and to penalize violations, will be passed during his term. It is now up for second reading in the House plenary session, he reported. Having pushed for a more accountable and transparent system in implementing projects during the campaign for the May, 2013 congressional election, Fortun was among the few legislators who called for the abolition of the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) alloted to lawmakers. The Supreme Court recently ruled the PDAF as unconstitutional. Even without the PDAF, Fortun said he was able to source funds for: -Medical and hospitalization assistance for indigent constituents; -Scholarship grants to students enrolled at Caraga State University here; -Technical trainings under the Training for Works Program of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA); and

-A comprehensive outreach program offering medical, dental, optical, legal and job fair, among others. Fortun renewed his promise before constituents during his first day as congressman at the Butuan City Hall grounds on July 1, 2013, that he “will bring the voices of the Butuanons and Agusanons in the halls of Congress, their hopes and dreams for development and progress.” For his part, Mayor Amante expressed his full support for Fortun’s congressional agenda. Amante and Fortun reassured the barangay leaders of their strong partnership and commitment to pursue good governance to work for a common development agenda for the city. The Amante-Fortun partnership dates back to 2010 that marked this city’s economic growth. Mayor Amante and then ViceMayor Fortun provided the leadership that blazed the trail to development and progress. The two leaders’ ties are seen to stay to become more formidable since both are deeply religious and committed to public service based on good governance, accountability and transparency.

Thank you mayor Moreno. This is a most humane and compassionate move to bring your administration nearest to the hearts of Kagay-anons! - Mindanao Daily News, December 5, 2013 -


ayor Oscar S. Moreno’s commitment to provide Philhealth memberships to some 100,000 city residents by 2014 is laudable! This is no mean thing since, at a premium rate of P2,400 per member per year, the Cagayan de Oro government will spend some P240 million. But since the City Health Insurance Program is one of his administration’s flagship programs, the endeavour is just a starter. Think of the almost 800,00 residents of the city today. About 80 percent of them badly need the medical assistance program. True to his words, Moreno issued a recent directive to the City Health Insurance Office (CHIO to start identifying qualified indigent families for enrolment in PhilHealth’s Sponsored Program.


Created by virtue of Executive Order No. 12113 dated August 01, 2013 under the Office of the City Mayor. the CHIO, headed by Dr. Ma. Lourdes S. Gaane and supported by 15 personnel, is faced with the gigantic task of promoting the universal PhilHealth coverage for the city residents as one of the City’s major poverty alleviation initiatives. The Program is the major component of the National Health Insurance Program (as administered by PhilHealth) wherein identified indigent families in a local government unit are given free PhilHealth membership. In an average family of five, the enrolment of 100,000 PhilHealth members would cover at least 500,000 beneficiaries. “This would mean that

seven out of ten residents in the City would now have financial risk protection in case of medical emergencies,” according to the CHIO. Barangay Health Workers of the City are now in the thick of preparations surveying residents without existing PhilHealth membership and advising them to coordinate for inclusion in the Program. Qualified residents must submit their birth certificates, marriage contract, and names of their qualified dependents (children below 21 and parents 60 years old). The enrolment period is until December 11, 2013. Thank you mayor Moreno. This is a most humane and compassionate move to bring your administration nearest to the hearts of Kagay-anons! Congratulations and more power!

Repent Biblical reflection Bro. Edcel L. Closas Fresh Gospel of the day: Mateo7:21.2427(December5, 2013-Thursday) Matthew 7:21.24-27Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it: This gospel reminds us that constant prayers to God is not a guarantee to inherit the kingdom of God unless we will obey His divine will. In Mateo6:9-12-in the prayer of our Father, it is stressed out to become obedient to God. What is His will? In 1 Thessalonians 4:3-For this is the will of God, [even] your sanctification, which ye should abstain from fornication. Why we need to be holy? In Isaias59:2- sins are the barriers between God and man. Do we have sins? Therefore, repent! On the other hand, Jesus distinguished the two persons in their responses in listening to the words of God. The one man, live what he has heard while the other one just listened and rejected the teachings. In James 1:22-But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. Are your deceivers? SPONSORED:Neneth - Bobong Balino- Dr. Edith, PhD- Tony Jordan - CDO. St. Peter Calungsod, pray for us!

The man of the hour For sure President Aquino named former Sen. Panfilo “Ping” Lacson as his administration’s rehabilitation czar to bring back to its feet areas in central Philippines devastated by super typhoon “Yolanda” because he wants things done and done for the betterment of the victims. If this is not what’s in Aquino’s mind when he issued such appointment, I doubt if he would have named Lacson to that post whose gigantic task could make or unmake the latter’s track record as a no-nonsense public official. And for certain, Lacson would not have accepted the task if he could not get things done. Why Lacson fits into the task of rehabilitation czar is because he has the track record to prove his ability to inspire and motivate and even make subordinates toe the line no matter how big their egos are according to set standards and expectations. When he was national police chief he envisioned a kotong-free police force. He instituted the necessary actions to eradicate the kotong behavior among policemen in the field. In this regard, public transport operators and drivers were all praises to him for his success in instilling in the mind of every cop that engaging in kotong does not pay. Public transport operators and drivers heaved a sigh of relief during Lacson’s stint as national police chief because kotong policemen could no longer ply their nefarious trade anywhere. Kotong became the exception rather than the rule during that time. To instill more discipline among his men, Lacson started with the officials themselves. He ordered them to trim their bellies to a specific minimum within a certain period of time or face dismissal should they fail. All police officials were forced to obey the order for fear of its consequences to their career if ever they fail. The nation witnessed how these police officials from lieutenant to generals jog every day as if there was no more tomorrow just so they can comply with the order of their chief. Saying that the practice of allowing ranking police officials to use vehicles impounded by the police for one reason or another, he immediately ordered that these be returned. Oh, boy, I could still remember that the entire parade grounds of Camp Crame, the national police headquarters, were not enough to accommodate all the returned vehicles. Lacson likewise ordered police officials never to use

A deeper view Jesse E.L. Bacon II their official duty time playing golf or other outdoor activities because doing so is not right. Police offices then teemed with officials doing desk work. The result of this was that policemen in the field were properly supervised thus bringing the crime index to its lowest level. Why was Lacson able to do this? He was able to do this because he showed to all and sundry that what he had ordered his subordinates to do, he too did what he ordered done. He jogged with them and never was an instance that they saw his belly bulging. He did not use any impounded vehicle as if it is his own. He even downloaded his P50 million yearly discretionary fund for use by the regional and provincial offices of the police all over the country to augment their respective budgets. He was the only national police chief who did this. In fighting all forms of criminality, Lacson was very exacting on his men in this regard. He imposed a onestrike policy against field commanders whose area of responsibility is found to be wanting in fighting crime such as gambling and crimes against persons and properties. As a result of this policy, every precinct commander was always in his toes in performing his primordial duty of ensuring that peace and order reigns in his jurisdiction. Even when he was senator, Lacson never wavered in his position about corruption. Not known to many Filipinos is that Lacson at first availed of the first tranche of his congressional pork barrel. But when he ended up haling to court friends who abused his pork barrel, he vowed never to avail anymore of his pork barrel unless the system governing the use of the fund is changed to insulate it from being corrupted.

Survivors mark first typhoon Pablo anniv

DAVAO CITY – Survivors of typhoon Pablo in Compostela Valley and Davao Oriental lighted candles and offered a Holy Mass Wednesday morning to mark the first year anniversary of the disaster that claimed more than 2,000 lives and destroyed billions of pesos in properties. At 11 p.m. of December 4, 2012, Pablo made a landfall in Baganga town in Davao Oriental and

wrecked havoc in nearby areas including New Bataan in Compostela Valley, which was identified to have the most number of fatalities. Wit h t h e i nt e r ve n t i on of mu lt i - s e c tor a l groups, Pablo survivors have started to begin a new life with a livelihood of their own to meet the day’s end. Most of them are still living in temporary shelters while the government

is still building its housing project. A mass tree planting led by local government units and volunteers followed after the mass in New Bataan and Boston in Davao Oriental to replace the destroyed trees. (PNA)

IDAPAWAN CITY -- A magnitude 5.5 earthquake hit Davao region Wednesday morning, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said here.

Nilo Tabigue of Phivolcs-Kidapawan said the tectonic in origin tremor which occurred at 7:59 a.m. was traced to the province of Davao Oriental. Its epicenter was located in the one kilometer east northeast of the village of Tinimbang, Governor Generoso town and has a depth of 61 kilometers. No reported casualty or damage to properties in Kidapawan City where the quake was felt at Intensity

3, according to Tabigue. It w a s t h e s e c o n d earthquake recorded in Mindanao since Sunday night when a magnitude 6 quake jolted parts of the region brought about by the movement of the trench beneath the sea of Sultan Kudarat province. The Phivolcs said Sunday night's tectonic tremor was too deep to trigger a tsunami. Phivolcs said the earthquake shook portions of Mindanao at 7:04 p.m. Sunday, with its epicenter at 195 kilometers southwest of Palimbang town in Sultan Kudarat. Phivolcs 11 downplays tsunami after magnitude 5.7 quake Meanwhile, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology here has downplayed a possible tsunami following the 5.7 earthquake that shook the Davao region early Wednesday morning.

Phivolcs 11 director Janilla De Ocampo said that although the tremor in tectonic origin has the epicenter in the coastal area of Mati City in Davao Oriental it could not have caused a tsunami. “The intensity of the earthquake is not that strong to trigger a tsunami in coastal areas of the region,” De Ocampo said in an interview, adding that the best way to do is to be calm and be relaxed in times of an earthquake. She said they also recorded no damages to properties but aftershocks should be expected. Aside from Mati City, intensity 5 was also felt in Davao City while intensity 4 in other parts of Davao del Sur and Davao Oriental, intensity 3 in Davao del Norte, Compostela Valley and North Cotabato and intensity 2 in Agusan del Sur, Cotabato City and South Cotabato.

actions was prompted by another individual, whom she refused to name because she’s “not the type to ruin someone else’s name.” “When I was told of my behavior AND the person who started all of this, due to this person’s inappropriate behavior, apologized to me too. Just as I did. Which I accepted too,” said Anne, who also refused to go into the detail of what truly happened that night that she attended her best friend’s bachelorette party.

The Fil-Australian actress, in an effort to do things “the right way” has owned up to her behavior that night. “For those who have read about the issue, yes, most of it is true.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18) - You are feeling so much more tired than you have any right to feel that you might just try to stay in bed all day long. If you’ve got any energy at all, you should try to use it on personal stuff. PISCES (February 19 – March 20) - You play a supporting role in today’s activities -- so scout out the best scenes for your own action. You may find yourself bumped up to a starring role in the very near future if you get your lines right. ARIES (March 21 – April 19) - You can make a real difference as long as you believe in yourself -- so make sure that you’re giving yourself the benefit of the doubt and marching forward toward your epic destiny! TAURUS (April 20 – May 20) - You’re firmly rooted in the ground today -- which could mean it’s time for a heart-to-heart with your sweetie, or maybe that you need to go for a long, frosty walk outside. Go forward boldly! GEMINI (May 21 – June 21) - You’re feeling held back today -- but it’s all external. If you can focus entirely on your own personal issues or projects, you should be able to make decent progress. Collaboration is not advised. CANCER (June 22 – July 22) - You are going to be out on the extremes today -- which isn’t often a good thing! See if you can track down some support before things start to go south, because outside help will be all you can hope for then.

After vaguely explaining her side of the story, Anne then apologized to her 5.7 million Twitter followers for the incident. “I’m sorry if I let any of my fans down.... As you all see, I’m just like any other person that makes mistakes in life,” she said. To those who have supported her through this controversy, Anne’s simple message was: “Thank you to everyone that has messaged me about their support. With where I am today I owe all of you my honesty. Good night.”

The 18-24 age group has the most number of cases. “We have a treatment hub at the Northern Mindanao Medical Center owned and managed by the Department of Health,” Pajo said as he urged persons who are suspecting if they are HIV-positive to “come out in the open”. Previously patients had to go to Davao City for tests. “We also offer free counselling at the City Health Office,” Pajo said. He called on those who suspect if they have AIDS to undergo tests. “We’ve had many cases of patients reacted to the HIV test,” Pajo said although the tests would have to be confirmed in Manila because the local test results are only recommendatory. Pajo said the Local AIDS Council and the Misamis Oriental AIDS Network have increased their information dissemination campaign and assures confidentiality among volunteers. He said all cities and provinces in Northern Mindanao region have AIDS cases.

As rehabilitation czar, I am certain Lacson could get things done and done the best way it should for the sake of the victims. Lacson is one hell of a guy who will never compromise what is best with puwede na. And since rehabilitation entails a lot of funds, private and public, to undertake it, the nation is assured that every penny is spent with utmost

integrity with Lacson at the helm of the effort. Why am I certain about this? I am certain about this because I am one of those who labored so hard in 2004 just so we can have a president who we could consider after his term as the best president we ever had.

Brgy dads urged to resolve row between residents, Forest Lake THE City Council committee on subdivision and landed estate chaired by Councilor Alexander S. Dacer Councilor Dacer on Friday adopted a resolution requesting Barangay Council of Indahag and Macasandig to resolve issues between the management of the Forest Lake Memorial Park and homeowners, who are opposing the development of the proposed cemetery project. Barangays were also requested to initiate the holding of a public hearing with affected residents. During its recent meeting, the committee heard the concerns of the Melecia Homes Homeowners Association, Arroville Subdivision Homeowners Association, and other residents of Upper Macasandig and Indahag. According to them, the presence of the cemetery may cause danger to them and adversely affect their health. In addition to this, the homeowners cited security reasons and possible increase in crimes especially at night. A representative of Forest Lake assured that the company will be putting up a high-end memorial park. It will be world class, with green scenery and it will be secured and well-lighted, she said. Based on the geo-hazard survey conducted by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), the area is suitable for a cemetery, she added. Former Councilor Emmanuel Abejuela said the reclassification of the area is residential. “The issue of this is the social acceptability since it is a medium residential area. So people around the area must be consulted,” he stressed. The committee referred the application for Preliminary Approval and Locational Clearance (PALC) of Forest Lake Memorial Park to the committee on laws and rules chaired by Ramon Tabor for appropriate action.

Mayweather’s next foe could be named this week but it won’t be ‘Pacquiao who?’

GRAND RAPIDS - Unbeaten US fighter Floyd Mayweather hinted that the identity of his next foe, speculated to be Britain's Amir Khan, could be revealed this week. In a report Tuesday on the MLive Media Group website from Mayweather's home state of Michigan, Mayweather was quoted as saying last week that this week could be a big one. Asked about his fight future on November 27, Mayweather said, "Next week. I'm looking forward to next week. But as for me right now I'm not thinking about boxing." May w e at h e r, 4 5 - 0 with 26 knockouts, is exp ected to f ight on May 3 of next year in his first bout since taking the World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association light middleweight titles in a 12-round majority deci-

sion over Saul "Canelo" Alvarez on September 14. Khan became the top speculative candidate after he failed to sign a deal that appeared set to face American Devon Alexander this Saturday, the talk being that he did not want to risk a chance for a big-money fight with Mayweather by taking on Alexander first. While both camps denied that was the case, the move meant Khan has fought only once this year, the fewest bouts of any year in his career. His last bout was a unanimous decision victory in April over Mexico's Julio Diaz. Asked about facing Filipino icon Manny Pacquiao, the fighter that boxing fans have wanted Mayweather to fight for several years, the 36-year-old champion only replied: "Who?" - AFP
