DAR welcomes BukPON-BFI integrated enterprise devt partnership By Ferdinand E. Villanueva

Malaybalay City -- The Department of Agrarian Reform-Bukidnon Provincial Office welcomes the establishment of Bukidnon People’s Organizations Network, Inc. (BukPON) and the Baba’s Foundation, Inc (BFI) partnership for the upliftment of small farmers in Bukidnon. The initiative known as BFI-Bukpon Integrated Enterprise Development (BBUKIED) was launched recently in Malaybalay City. The ceremony started with the blessing of the new office, “ the Ananda Marga Way” by Dada Mantrajapananda Avt, Baba’s Foundation Incorporated

(BFI) Chairperson and was followed by the cutting of ribbon with PARO Julio C. Celestiano, Jr. assisted by BUKPON Chaiman Engr. Vicente H. Leono and Ms. Cristita Racosalem-Epal, BFI Executive Director. The Bukidnon People’s Organizations Network, Inc (BukPON) is a non-stock and non-profit organization duly registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and is committed to implement a partnership program designed to increase the income of its people’s organizations (PO) some members of which are being assisted by DAR through the Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Project (ARISP III).

BABA’s Foundation Inc. (BFI) on the other hand, is a private non-stock and non-profit organization that is also committed to assist and share its expertise and experience to enable BukPON to install a microfinance facility, partnershipmanaged enterprise and adopt sustainable agriculture technologies that will complement initiatives of BukPON peoples organizations members. Bukidnon PARO Julio C.

Davao eyes automating collection to curb corruption DAVAO City––C omputerizing records at the city’s revenue-generating agencies may be one way to prevent corruption in these offices, an official said. In an interview, City Councilor Danilo Dayanghirang, chair of the committee on finance said the City Information and Technology Center (CITC) has suggested allotting part of the 2014 budget to the centralization of collection data. “We need to make sure that the elbow room for corruption will be mini-

mized. I think we should go into computerization,” Dayanghirang said. The councilor said that the city assessor’s office and accounting office are already implementing a centralization of their data. Last year, the city building office targeted to fully automate its operations by the fourth quarter of 2013, including the purchase of a large format scanner for the input of plans of incoming investors. The scanner reportedly costs around P1.3 million or over 50 percent of the P2.3-million budget for the

agency’s computerization. However, the office of the city treasurer and other revenue-generating offices such as the public markets and terminals are yet to be computerized. “We are aiming for the central control and management of records,” Dayanghirang said, adding they are identifying cities and municipalities that are already implementing computerization. The official said automation raises the possibility of taxpayers only having to go online for their transactions. “We’re also looking for-

ward to applying a business model that is used by utilities,” he said. The Davao Light and Power Corporation and the Davao City Water District have a system where clients can pay by going to designated paying areas in malls. Dayanghirang said the system could also lead to an increased centralization of other government functions, such as safety and flood monitoring. He said that if the measure is approved it would be up to Mayor Rodrigo Duterte to decide if the city would need a contrac-

tor, aside from its existing implementing agencies. During the committee hearing Monday, Dayanghirang told the CITC to give him what the agency has accomplished and what it needs for the upcoming year. Ricarte Franco Jr., CITC officer-in-charge told the committee the previous cost for the internet connection for City Hall and its departments amounted to P1.8 million. The cost for the firewall for the website was P150,000 which came from a P5 million budget for the CITC this year, Franco said.

He said the appropriation for a point of payment software that would help in the interconnection was around P2.3 million. However, this software is yet to be materialized. Franco said in an interview that the interconnection will only succeed if there is a comprehensive study of existing infrastructure in the different city government agencies. He added the CITC would need the entire 2014 to complete the plan, and that it was too early to propose an exact budget. See CURB/p.11

Bukidnon sends P4M in aid to Bohol, Cebu, Zambo By WALTER I. BALANE

MALAYBALAY CITY – The provincial government of Bukidnon sent a total of P4 million in aid to disasterstricken Bohol and Cebu provinces and Zamboanga City, MindaNews learned on Monday. Bohol and Cebu were hit by a 7.2-magnitude quake last month which destroyed heritage churches and other infrastructure, and displaced thousands of people. Zamboanga City is still reeling from the economic and humanitarian crises caused by the 3-week standoff in September between government forces and members of the Moro National Liberation Front-Misuari faction. According to Ordinance No. 2013-058 approved during the special session of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) on October 25, the amount will be shared as follows: Province of Bohol P2 million; Province of Cebu P1 million; and Zamboanga City P1 million. The amount came from the appropriation for Maintenance and Other Operating Expenses – Agricultural Assistance of the Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Manage-

ment Fund 2013. The amount will form part of the province’s Supplemental Budget No. 05 of the general fund for this year. Provincial legal consultant Albert Lagamon personally handed the checks to the three local governments from October 29 to 31, said Hansel Echavez, chief of the Capitol’s Public Affairs and Information and Assistance office. “To show our deepest compassion to the victims of the tragedy, the Province of Bukidnon wishes to extend financial support/subsidy to the concerned local government units to be taken from the LDRRMF,” Gov. Jose Ma. R. Zubiri Jr. said in his letter to the SP requesting for the financial assistance. The SP cited the death and destruction brought by the quake in Bohol and Cebu, and the displacement caused by the standoff in Zamboanga. President Benigno Aquino III has placed these areas under a state of calamity, giving the other local government units the option to extend financial assistance to the victims. (Walter I.

Woman’s World - Unveiling A Modest, Yet Priding Piece

n celebration of its 37th Charter Day, the Soroptimist International of Cagayan de Oro (SI-CDO) unveiled their chapter’s stone marker at the junction of Bulua-Kauswagan National Highway on October 29, 2013. The occasion was led by SI-CDO president Ms. Erlinda B. Maandig and Chairperson Mrs. Tessie B. Brioso. SI governor Ms. Minda A. Garcia was also at hand to lend glitter to the event . Chartered in 1978, the Soroptimist International of Cagayan de Oro has been involved in various projects in the city dedicated to women as they are its primary concern. It is an established fact that women all over the world are challenged by obstacles restricting their abilities to perform significant roles in the society. It is inspiring to know that some organizations carry out their objectives addressing women’s immediate and long-term needs. Being exclusive, Soroptimist International of Cagayan de Oro has not

found familiarity among many individuals. Satisfied with their concealed effort in generously serving the community, the members commemorated their organization through its modest yet priding piece. Founded in 1921, Soroptimist International is a world-wide volunteer service organization for business and professional women committed to a world where women and girls together achieve their individual and collective potential and having an equal voice in creating strong and peaceful communities worldwide. It is their mission to raise awareness among women in local communities to improve their lives and realize their potentials. Through their General Consultative Status as a non-governmental organization at the United Nations, the organization claims to seek equality, peace, and international goodwill for women. The Mission Statement of the organization is: Through international partnerships and a global network of members, Soroptimists inspire action

and create opportunities to transform the lives of women and girls by: Advocating for equity and equality; Creating safe and healthy environments; Increasing access to education; Developing leadership and practical skills for a sustainable future. There are four Federations around the world; SI of the Americas, SI Great Britain and Ireland (SIGBI) Ltd, SI of Europe and SI of South West Pacific. The headquarters office for Soroptimist International is in Cambridge, UK. The organization comprises approximately 95,000 members in more than 125 countries and territories worldwide who contribute time and financial support to community-based and international projects. Soroptimist members belong to local clubs, which determine the focus of service to their communities. The name “Soroptimist” was coined by combining the Latin words soror “sister” and optimus “best”, and can be taken to mean “best for women.” (By: Maelyn Brioso-Roa)

Opinion

Of disaster and survival LOCAL officials are frantic on reports of a super typhoon that may landfall in the country this week. Weathermen spotted a developing storm known as Typhoon Yolanda thousands of miles southeast of the Pacific. The PAGASA, the country’s weather forecasting agency, has not released detailed information about the typhoon’s movement and packing strength. Pag-asa, however, predicted that the typhoon might landfall in Eastern Samar on Wednesday evening or Thursday morning. No one could blame if the Cagayanons would be hysterical whenever reports about incoming typhoons every now and then.

Is DAP wrong?

SINCE there are three branches of government under our system, each and the Constitutionally-mandated bodies are allocated separate annual budget in the national budget. The budget process requires that every line agency, bureau or office under the executive branch, the Supreme Court in the judicial branch and the two-chamber Congress in the legislative branch draw up their respective budget requirements and these are collated according to each branch and Constitutionally-mandated bodies in the General Appropriations Act. The judicial and legislative branches of government and the Constitutionallymandated bodies such as the Commission on Audit, Civil Service Commission and the Commission on Elections have the sole prerogative to spend according to the national budget their respective allocations and the savings they may realize at the end of every calendar year. The executive branch through the office of the President likewise spends its budget according to the national budget but political foes of the present Palace occupant want that he be deprived of the right to spend the savings realized by the different agencies, bureaus and offices under the branch he was elected to head, hence, the battle waged against the Disbursement Acceleration Program or DAP. While all those opposed to DAP is inexplicably silent about how the savings of the two other branches, the legislative and judiciary, and the Constitutionally-mandated bodies are spending their savings, they are very vocal against the President’s exercise of a management prerogative on what to do

A deeper view Jesse E.L. Bacon II with the executive branch’s savings. Are these Palace opponents of the belief that what is good for the goose is actually not good for the gander? Why deprive the President of the land the same management prerogative exercised by the heads of the other branches of government and the Constitutionally-mandated bodies? This is truly puzzling. What practice these Palace foes would like the executive branch to exercise with regard that branch’s savings? Allow the respective line agencies, bureaus and offices to spend their savings on activities that will not prop up the economy like the way the DAP had propped up the economy thus its ability to post unprecedented growth? How did these agencies, bureaus and offices spend their respective savings in the past? They spent it on incentives primarily for their officials, for out of town outings camouflaged as training and seminars in tourist destinations such as Boracay and any other expenses that they can think of. Why did they do this? This is being done because if they will return their savings to the national coffers, their budget for the succeeding year will be slashed. Who wants a slashed budget? To spend the savings of these line agencies, bureaus and offices under the executive branch, the President through the Department

of Budget and Management impounded these savings and used them to pump prime the economy by funding big ticket infrastructure projects. In the process of putting to good use the savings realized by the executive branch, the President recognized the need to consult similarly elected officials such as congressmen and senators what infrastructure projects they would like funded for the benefit of their respective constituencies. Consultative leadership is always preferred in a democratic government over despotic practices in authoritarian regimes. So there was really nothing wrong or despicable about the President’s having asked the national legislators to help him identify projects that they deem beneficial to their constituencies. Disabuse your mind from thinking that the DAP fund amounting to only nine percent, yes, only nine percent of the total DAP allocation allocated for projects identified by the legislators were handed to the legislators in cold cash. Unfortunately, the corruption-driven legislators found a way to abuse the trust and confidence given them by the President by having the DAP fund allocated for the projects they have identified rerouted from the implementing line agency to non-government organizations later See WRONG, page 11

colds, flashlights, candles, disposable lighters, and a small transistor radio, and extra clothing’s are among important things in an emergency kit. It would also be advantageous if the family have mobile phones, extra batteries, prepaid cards, and bottled water. While everyone is in the thick of these preparations, one important thing should always be in mind. When disaster occurs, keep calm and be composed. Calmness in times of emergencies is one element that could save lives. A person could make the right decisions when he is relaxed and composed. Avoid being suicidal and overbearing. Accept that the condition has taken place and avoid being a sentimentalist. Some people cling to objects they thought are priceless. Let not this principle rules the mind. When everything is lost, the principle of life preservation is the last recourse. Surviving a disaster through proper disposition is a testament that a human being is, indeed, the master of himself. -0- [Listen to “Alarma sa Udtong Tutok” every 11:00 – 12:00 Mon. to Friday at 95.7 FM Mellow Touch Radio] React: crisguardian@yahoo.com

peace process,” she urged. “This peace negotiation is inclusive. Even though we are talking to the MILF, our main goal here is to address the Bangsamoro question, and all stakeholders will be benefited,” Coronel- Ferrer said during a consultation forum with leaders of Muslim communities here. For his part, Sadain said that the government’s “efforts with the MILF will benefit also the people of Zamboanga to reap the dividends of peace.” “I think it is but proper that we put our acts together now and we should realize that whatever happens in other provinces will somehow affect not just Zamboanga City but also the rest of the country,” he said. The panel also explained the relevancy of the ongoing talks with the MILF as a complementary track of the 1996 Final Peace Process between the government and the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) to achieve a common solution to address the clamor of the Bangsamoro people. In the consultation process, the panel explained the dynamics of the tripartite review process with the MNLF, and the government’s plan to converge the 1996 Final Peace Agreement and the future comprehensive agreement with the MILF. “[There are] two things (tripartite review process between government and the MNLF, and the negotiations between government and the MILF) running on parallel tracks. The hope is for them to converge on the later time, and the best timing would be during the enactment of the Basic Law, where both interests would be taking into consideration,” Sadain explained. Sadain was referring to the proposed law that will be crafted by the Bangsamoro Transition Commission, and be submitted to the Congress to give more political power to the Bangsamoro. Under the peace plan, the Basic Law will address the deficiencies of the current See peace, page 11

Philippines came out on top during the 20-day fighting in the Zamboanga City crisis last September, outgoing Western Mindanao Command chief Army Lt. Gen. Rey Ardo said there is a need for the military to acquire more equipment for urban warfare.

Urban warfare refers to fighting in cities and heavily-populated areas. Ardo said acquiring such materiel will greatly boost the AFP's capabilities in case of occurrence of a similar problem. This includes body armor for the soldiers, infra-red and night vision spotting gear for snipers and night fighting, compact machine guns and auto-pistols. "We need to improve on those capabilities," he added. Aside from the above-

mentioned equipment, Ardo stressed that the AFP needs to beef up its training on joint operations so that a seamless interchange can take place among the Army, Navy, and Air Force. Ardo is scheduled to retire on Nov. 9 after reaching the mandatory retirement age of 56. He will be replaced by incumbent Western Command chief Marine Lt. Gen. Rustico Guerrero. Guerrero is a member of the Philippine Military Academy Class of 1981.

The Wester n Mindanao Command covers Central Mindanao, Basilan, Sulu and TawiTawi while the Western Command has jurisdiction over Palawan and the Kalayaan Group of Islands. Replacing Guerrero at the Western Command is Philippine Air Force Lt. Gen. Roy Deveraturda, the present head of the Central Command which is based in Cebu City. Turnover ceremonies for the Western Command are set on Nov. 8. Replacing Deveraturda at the Central Command is Major Gen. John S. Bonafos who currently heads the Nueva Ecijabased Special Operations Command. "All three officers are qualified for the job at hand," AFP chief Gen. Emmanuel Bautista said. (PNA)

Koronadal eyes relocation site for residents in danger zones

KORONADAL CITY – The city government is planning to develop a 2.4-hectare resettlement area for local residents situated in calamity danger zones and those who were displaced by the recent floods and landslides that hit the area. Mayor Peter Miguel said he has commissioned a team composed of city government personnel to identify and assess the potential sites within the city for the proposed resettlement project, which would be developed by next year. The mayor said the team, which includes local environmental planners, is

presently studying several areas that it initially found viable for the project. He said the team’s recommendation will serve as basis for the acquisition or purchase later on of the relocation site. “The evaluation process is quite tedious as we want to have a relocation area that is free from possible disasters like floods and landslides,” Miguel said in a radio interview. The mayor said the project’s target beneficiaries are residents who are settled in identified flood and landslide-prone areas. The Depar tment of Environment and Natu-

Comelec 11 urges bgys to pay election share or face sanctions

D

AVAO CITY -- The Commission on Elections (Comelec XI) has updated consolidated report on the status of barangay shares as of Oct. 30, 2013 shows that some barangays in the Davao Region have not paid their election shares.

Comelec Regional director Atty. Remlane M. Tambuang has urged barangay officials to submit their share in the October 28 barangay elections or face sanctions. Comelec Resolution No. 9739 has mandated all barangays to submit their election contributions

to the election officers amounting to 10 percent of the total SK budget but not less than P10,000. The collected amount will be used for the transportation allowance of the Board of Election Tellers (BET), he said. Under the law, Tambuang said barangay officials who continue

to desist or are unwilling to remit their election shares without justifiable reasons "shall be charged with an election offense pursuant to Section 51 of the Omnibus Election Code, in addition to proper administrative action and other crimes for which the local government official or person concerned may be liable for." "The deadline was October 18 and now that the election is over, they have to give their shares or expect summons from their respective election officers," echoing the order of Comelec Regional Lawyer April Mitchor said. The election officers informed

them that some barangays only complied with the minimum amount mentioned even if they have big barangays and thus require more BETs, she said. Tambuang said Compostela Valley province have not submitted their election shares with two out of 38 barangays in Laak, one out of 10 barangays in Mabini and one out of 20 barangays in Monkayo. In Davao City, the following barangays have not submitted their election shares: Agdao, with 51 BETs, Buhangin with 345 BETs, Lumiad with 9 BETs, Mabuhay with 9 BETs, Mapula with 15 BETs,

Panacan with 183 BETs, Panalong with 12 BETs, Salapawan with 15 BETs, Sumimao with 12 BETs and W. Aquino with 57 BETs. All the 82 barangays in District 3 have submitted their shares while there are no existing updates for the 54 barangays in District 1. As a consequence of the nonpayment of some barangays of their election shares, only the P2,000 honorarium from the Comelec will be released to the BETs. The P500 per BET will be released only once the said barangays have contributed their shares, he emphasized. (PNA)

Francisco said students who want to learn more about how energy works are encouraged to visit the one-month energy exhibit which will be held from November 5 to December 5, 2013. Francisco said energy comes in many forms and the exhibits, which came all the way from Manila, will showcase the many forms of energy including light, mechanical, sound, water and electricity. MSTC has permanent exhibits at the Centrum geared for science students. However, she said, the 35 travelling energy exhibits are something new and should not be

missed by students. “Most students claim to have difficulty in learning science and mathematics which is why they should not only be exposed to classroom lectures but also to interactive exhibits like this one,” she said. The MSTC was formally launched in November 1999 and has since then, tried its best to provide interactive science learning to students despite the lack of budget for the Centrum. All the 35 energy exhibits may be viewed at an affordable entrance fee of only P50 for students. (PNA)

Peace... from page 8

Republic Act 9054 that created the existing Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao. The deficiencies in the RA 9054 are also reflected in the 42-concensus points that the government and the MNLF came up in the tripartite review process. Members of the panel explained that if there were misunderstandings between the government and the MNLF, particularly the Nur Misuari faction, it could be addressed in proper venue such as the tripartite review process, where the two sides can discuss and dialogue, rather than use violence. The MNLF-Misuari faction attacked this city on September 9 -- five days before the two parties will meet in Indonesia to resume the tripartite review process. More than 100, 000 people here were displaced during the 20-day crisis. Abdul Hamid Irin, village chairman of the Santa Barbara, said one of the ingredients to end the armed conflict in Mindanao is for the for the peace process to be inclusive. Sta. Barbara is one of the most affected villages during the Zamboanga City standoff. “It is time for us Muslims to put our acts together and unite for our common good,” Atty. Yaser Sapion of the Darul Iftah said. Aside from consulting members of the Muslim communities here, the negotiating team also made a courtesy call to Lilia Nuño, the city’s second district representative, and members of the civil society groups. “It is high time for all Muslims to unite and work together for the common good of all Bangsamoro,” Rep. Nuño said. Colonel-Ferrer said despite of the attack perpetuated by the MNLF-Misuari faction in this city, the government is not abandoning the peace process with the MNLF, saying other factions within the organization and still believed in the primacy of the 1996 Final Peace Agreement and did not support the actions taken by Misuari and his followers. “In fact, there is an ongoing preparation to resume the tripartite review process,” she announced. “The government is open to talk peace with groups that have legitimate grievances, which do not use violence to pursue their cause,” Basman said. Among those will be consulted here are the local government unit of this city, the media and other nongovernment organizations. (http://www.mindanaoexaminer.com/)

discovered to be bogus. Is this abuse the wrongdoing of the President? I don’t think so. The abuse is the doing of the corrupt legislators who proved themselves wanting for the trust and confidence bestowed on them by the President. Since a portion of the nine percent DAP fund allocation to the legislators was abused by them, did this make the DAP as a program wrong or evil? Again, I don’t think so. The evil is not the DAP but the legislators who abused it. Kinahanglan pa bang i-memorize ni? •• (Reactions at jelbacon@ yahoo.com or at jelbaconii@ gmail.com.

petition for review at the Department of Justice. UPLM, the counsel for the Capion family in the case against the soldiers cited the following facts as enough bases to prosecute the respondents: • Respondents admit t h at t h e y w e re i n t h e place of the crime at the time it happened; • Respondents were armed with M-16 rifles; • Among t he shel ls recovered from the crime scene were those from an M-16 rifle; • Three of the respondents admitted having fired their guns; • Their shots were aimed at the men who hid behind the hut; • T h e v i c t i ms we re inside the hut where the shots were directed; • Respondents admitted that they moved the victims out of the hut-- a ver y unusual thing to do when one seeks to administer first aid as it could be done without moving them and risk further injur y ; • Respondents failed to refute the witnesses’ allegation that they cleaned the house; and • Witnesses positively pointed to respondents as the persons present in the crime scene immediately after its commission. “ These facts put respondents directly in the crime scene and strongly indicate that they have c au s e d t h e d e at h a n d injur y of the victims,” the statement said. It noted that the investigating pros ecutor used the term “conviction” and quoted from the rules of evidence on the requirements to convict on circumstantial evidence. It said the prosecutor “assumed the function of a trial judge calibrating evidence which is proper only in a trial” by looking for “proof that will convict respondents for murder.” “Further, the prosecutor’s f i nd i ng s d i re c t ly contradicts those of another agency of governm e nt - - - t h e C om m i s sion on Human Rights -- which recommended the filing of murder cases against the soldiers involved in the killings,” UPLM said. “These facts add further to the weight that t h e re i s i n d e e d pro b able cause, thus, the case should proceed before a regular court,” it added.

PO3 Leonilo Laquio said Ruben Carpio III, 38, succumbed to three gunshot wounds in his stomach, right shoulder and left hand. The suspect, Delma A.

Laquiao said a witness, identified as Elma Padilla, reported to the police that she was having a conversation with Carpio when the suspect intervened and uttered provoking words to Carpio. Padilla said Carpio chased Meliton to

her house. Meliton said she closed her room but Carpio entered, forcing her to shoot at him three times. Carpio was brought to the Northern Mindanao Medical Center but was pronounced dead on arrival by the attending physician. The police investigators said they recovered from the crime scene the revolver, three empty cartridges and two bullets. Laquiao said the revolver has no serial number and that it is unlicensed. He said the police will file a case on Monday of murder, illegal possession of firearm, and Comelec gun ban violation against the suspect. The suspect has been detained at the Carmen police precinct, which has jurisdiction over Bayabas.

He said the rescue teams who had slept over at the provincial capitol during Typhoon Wilma the other day have left for home but remain on red alert. All municipal governments have also been put on red alert especially for areas that are prone to flooding and landslide. Pacamalan said they have set up communication lines

Governor Yevgeny Vincente Emano on Monday manned the communication center at the provincial capitol at the height of heavy rains brought about Wilma but no floods were reported.

Freemasonry defines itself as a regular system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols. In particular, masonic meetings are characterized by initiations and rituals. Espi no ex tended his warm congratulations to the members of Macajalar Lodge 148 for having achieved its own temple in its jurisdiction. “Make it your house, but make the house a home,” Espino said. “And make this home, this temple, as an instrument to make better men in the society,” he

added. With Espino in the hierarchy during the rituals are past GMs MW Pablo Kho, MW Romeo Yu and MW Peter Lim Lo Suy. Members of t he Free and Accepted Masons are organized into lodges, the basic organizational structure, which operates under the jurisdiction of a grand lodge. The Macajalar structure, which houses Lodge’s 148 Temple, is not only an ornament to the City of Cagayan de Oro, but an indication that Masonry in this region is “alive and kicking,” said Espino. In accepting the completion of the edifice and its subsequent consecration and dedication to the “virtue and benevolence and belief in God Almighty,” Espinso said: “We are pleased to comply with the desire of our brethren (in Lodge 148) to accept it heartily” coupled with an appreciation of the enterprising spirit of the members in establishing the edifice in accordance with the teachings and ancient masonic forms. Espino said he is proud for the Mindanaoan-Masons for their achievements and hope that he was among them.
