Sen. Aquino names Oro ‘Go Negosyo’ pilot area By Cheng Ordoñez Associate Editor

CAGAYAN de Oro City–– Senator Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino met with various business groups here n Northern Mindanao, first in Bukidnon province and later in Cagayan de Oro City, last Saturday (Feb. 15) and presented Senate Bill No.2046, otherwise known as the “Go Negosyo Bill.” Sen. Aquino said Cagayan de Oro City has been identified to be one of the four pilot areas in the entire country for the implementation of “Go Negosyo Bill” per recommendation from the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). Senate Bill No. 2046 is an act promoting the reduction of poverty through the development of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs). Sen. Aquino told a group of businessmen in Malaybalay that the measure “aims to facilitate ease of doing business, push the growth of micro and small enterprises, create jobs and livelihood around the country, and hopefully achieve the inclusive growth that millions of our fellow Filipinos desperately wish to be part of.” “The fact that the Philippines has grown astoundingly over the past three years is no longer news to us. Since 2010, the administration of President Benigno

Aquino III has worked hard to institute fiscal reforms and anti-corruption measures that have led to robust economic growth, global investor confidence, and our recently earned investment grade ratings by Moody’s, Fitch, and Standard & Poor. From being the “Sick Man of Asia” just a decade or so ago, we are now among the“Breakout Nations” and one of Asia’s “Rising Stars.” “Today, we are second only to China in terms of growth,” Sen. Aquino said. “We can say that our macro-economic numbers, especially over the past year and a half, have been phenomenal. However, all this growth means nothing if we cannot create jobs, livelihood, and “mass employment” for millions of poor Filipinos. Hindi po katanggap-tanggap na habang umaarangkada ang ating ekonomiya, maraming pa ring Pilipino ang patuloy na naghihirap,” he said. Sen. Aquino pointed to “unlocking of inclusive growth through MSME development” as one of the key measures to business development in the country. Sen. Aquino is the chairman of the Senate Committee on Trade, Commerce and Entrepreneurship. He said his Committee has identified several keys to unlocking inclusive growth, among them comprehensive and meaningful support for

micro, small, and medium enterprises; unhindered access to inclusive finance; support for social enterprises through inclusive supply chains; the K+12 educational system geared towards enterprise development and job placement; and clear pipeline for the 4Ps program towards productivity. “Underpinning all of these is the development of our micro and SME sector, which accounts for 99% of

all businesses in the Philippines and at least 66% of all jobs in the labor force. The numbers show that boosting the MSME sector will help us create more decent, sustainable jobs that can lift many Filipinos out of poverty. We also need to look at MSMEs as a pipeline for development, instead of seeing the micro, the small, and the medium enterprises in silos. We need programs that will enable micro enterprises to

enter the formal economy; our goal should be to help them “graduate” into SMEs so that they grow and generate revenue and jobs for our communities. MSME development is a continuum that needs support at each stage from the government and the private sector,” Sen. Aquino said told the business group and some national and local government officials led by Representatives Malou Acosta (1st District), Florencio Flores Jr., (2nd District), Jose Ma. Zubiri III (3rd District) and Oneil Roque (4th Ditrict). From the business meeting, Sen. Aquino proceeded to Pook Kaamulan, where he was guest of honor in the celebration of “Wika ng Kapayapaan: Pambansang Summit at Palihan. Later in the evening,Sen. Aquino told another business group representing Camiguin, Iligan and Cagayan de Oro City what the Go Negosyo Bill hopes to achieve. At its core, the Go Negosyo Bill addresses this current gap in government support systems, and by empowering and supporting MSMEs, which comprise 99% of all businesses in the country, it means

setting them on a pipeline for development. “Hence, this bill, is a “foundational” and necessary aspect of our country’s inclusive growth agenda,” the Senator said. At the heart of the Go Negosyo Bill is infrastructure and support for MSMEs at the city and municipal level so that each local government is able to boost MSME growth and provide jobs and livelihood for their constituents. Go Negosyo Bill has been designed to connect to and complement two existing laws: The Magna Carta for MSMEs and the BMBE Law. It deepens the Magna Carta for MSMEs by establishing Negosyo Centers supervised by DTI in each city and municipality as a hub for MSME registration and development. Entrepreneurs of all sizes will know they have a partner in starting and growing their businesses, and getting access to the right kind of training, mentoring, and value chain linkages. At the Thanks-giving Dinner at Limketkai Luxe Hotel in CDO, Sen. Aquino was accompanied by Rep. Rolando “Klarex” Uy (1st District), Rep. Rufus Rodriguez (2nd District), and top officials from Camiguin province and iligan City.

National Achievement Test (NAT) Is It Necessary?

By Merlisa G. Tala

By Censusa R. Abuel San Simon Elementary School Principal-I

National Achievement Test (NAT) is an examination conducted annually before a given School Year ends. It is done to ascertain the educational performance of students achieved during the year. Students knowledge, skills and values are tested in different subject areas- Mathematics, Science, English, Filipino, HEKASI for Elementary level and Araling Panlipunan for High School. The test is administered by the Department of Education through the National Education Testing and Research Center (NETRC). The purpose is to find out the degree of achievement performed by the students in the entire country based on the Minimum Learning Competencies per level per subject areas. The results will guide the de-

partment on what course to take appropriate to the findings gathered in the field. Furthermore, the test results are not only useful for the national educational personnel but equally useful for school administrators in the field and most importantly for the classroom teachers whose main task lies the success and failure of students performance in the classroom. Achieving the MLC per school level, per subject areas are indeed a great challenge to everybody and to the stake holder/clientele. This is the reason why reviews, in dept teachings are evidently done by classroom teachers to achieve the targeted passing percentage. For honest to goodness conduct of the test, they are very rewarding and meaningful. When test result fall

short of what is expected, would mean extra work, extra time, extra patience for teachers, school heads and monitoring subject area supervisor. Attaining the elusive quality education of Philippine Educational System need coordinated efforts by everybody to produce responsible, productive, skilled and value-oriented citizens of our country. The writer rose from a classroom teacher to school administrator. She has been exposed, immersed, had experienced being involved in this national assessment activity. It is both a challenge and rewarding. A challenge when students performed below the target. Rewarding when the outcomes is very satisfactory A question : Is NAT necessary?

When I was in fourth year high school I was asked by my teacher what course am I going to pursue after graduation. My answer was I want to be a teacher. I want to teach my pupils someday on how to spell, to love figures, to write and the most important one is on how to read. My teacher told “hope you can be the best reader in the future”. This statement fascinated and challenged me to become one. Since I love my work, I am always motivated to teach. Considering my pupils as my own children, I gave them the glamour, the expression of loving them, to let them feel that they belong in the classroom where they are in. In the grade I world, teaching reading is not easy especially at the start. But then my mind is already

Teachers are catalyst of change. Individually, they handle classes to the extent that what they teach may become indelible to the young minds of the learners. They employ different techniques and strategies to make sure that the diverse intelligences of the learners are addressed. Progressively, they are taking steps to attend to the need of globally competitive individuals as the country strikes forward for more development and success. Last year, K+12 Curriculum took off. The 21st Century Learning consists of core subjects and themes that move around three core skills: life and career skills, learning and innovation skills, and information media, and technology skills. These are the skills that students need in order to be successful in the 21st century. The core subjects include:

English, Reading, Language Arts, World Languages, Arts, Mathematics, Economics, Science, Geography, History, and Government and Civics. In addition to the core subjects, schools must integrate the 21st century interdisciplinary themes in the daily instructional activities. The themes consist of global awareness, financial, economic, business, entrepreneurial, civil, health, and environmental literacy. According to Trilling and Fadel (2009), the ability to work effectively and creatively with team members and classmates regardless of differences in culture and style is an essential 21st century life skill . Likewise, teachers need to prepare the students for a world beyond the classroom in order for them to become successful in all aspects

of their lives. Also, leadership and responsibility “provides lots of opportunities to take responsibility and exercise leadership-skills important to future employers”. Teaching students responsibilities will strengthen their work ethic when they have a job or career. They will be prepared and be confident when they are seeking for job opportunities. It will continue to help them succeed in the job market and learn even more skills. Every day is a continuous challenge for the teachers to mold the learners into responsible, globally competitive citizens who would surely make the words of Gat Jose Rizal come true that the youth is the hope of the nation. Help build a stronger and better nation by producing more productive citizens in your own classrooms.

conditioned that these pupils I have should know how to read at the end of July or August. I think it positively, spend a lot of time and even gave them remedial reading teaching. I felt successful and contented at the end of the day if two or three pupils are improving their reading ability. Aside from that I always see to it that the pupils love the atmosphere in the classroom, the audio and visual aids, the order, the cleanliness, the books they wanted to read should at hand. Thus, my philosophy in teaching reading is to encourage the child for him to learn confidence, praise him so that the child can appreciate, deals him with fairness, for him to know that justice has been exercised. Give the child the security he needs and approve what good things he did in school. Accept the child and befriend him so he’ll find love in me.

“BUHOS” A Noctural Business

21st Century Learning treads Global Competitiveness By LOU Q. PALMA Kisolon Central Elem. School, Sumilao District

Four die in road accident


By Michael T. Pelecio, Head Teacher I Kahusayan Elementary School, Kitaotao II District

“Gasolina for Sale”, this caption can be seen almost everywhere in the highways of Bukidnon. Well this caption might soon replaced with “: Highway General Merchandise”. This is because now a days almost everything that a man needs seems to be available in this kind of business. Fuel, milk, junk foods, you name it they have it. And even meat (chicken and pork) are being sold in the so called “Buhos Business”). Buhos is an illegal selling of products by the delivery personnel. Well , no wonder why these trade have grown as fast as lightning. Prices are way down below compared with that of the stores with permit from the government. And everyone can buy any time of the day, mind you, that is a 24/7 business. This I think have swayed the hearts of the consumers to patronize such kind of commerce. Noctural business as I describe, for these so called” buhos “ happen

at night. Products are being dropped by the “producers” usually on the time that nobody notice or see.O course, we don’t have any in-born ability to see in the dark, so they do it at night. And I guess that the government is diurnal. It works at daytime and closes its eyes at night as we literally close our eyes as we sleep. Personally, i don’t see any illegal acts on this matter other than paying taxers to the government. These people involved don’t have permit, thus, they are not issuing any receipt to their clients. And this trade is becoming so rampant if not yet. For sure this kind of commerce would hit our economy like fireball. Hitting and creating a hole that would probably put us down under. And with fingers crossed hoping the day won’t come, we might just see ourselves in a deep economic crisis. Isn’t this alarming to every one of us ? Think of it.

Account Yolanda funds; INC, ‘amazing again’ LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… if you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come on you and overtake you… The Lord will strike you with… scorching heat and drought… The sky over your head will be bronze, the ground beneath you iron…” (Deuteronomy 28:15, 22-23, the Bible). -oooWHERE HAVE THE BILLIONS IN YOLANDA AID GONE? At the rate things are going, with many Yolanda victims storming media outlets with their complaint that, despite the trillions of pesos in local and international aid that had been received by the Aquino government they are still unable to receive any assistance at this point, there is a need for our officials now to do a math, or an accounting. Officials, particularly of the Department of Social

VERY clear, it depends on what genre of music you are talking about. Since many years I am hosting classical music radio shows in the Philippines. Classical music doesn’t mean the Beatles or Rolling Stones, the Rock area of the 1950’s. Maybe it’s the Glenn Miller Swing of the 1940’s and even much earlier! I love music. I can’t survive without. But, the prostitution is incomprehensible as well as unpardonable. The music industry’s future seems to become (again?) very questionable. Record companies worldwide still keep on talking about that topic. The radical change and make-up of the whole music industry seems to be very clumsy but unwavering and obvious. We’re all subjected to prevailing tastes, but especially the pop music field’s spending power dwindles and fades slowly but surely. “Positive” music - check the lyrics and understand, what I am talking about. Listen to innumerable radio stations,

Kakampi mo ang batas Atty. Batas Mauricio Welfare and Development, must now list down how much donations in money the government already accepted, how much of it had been spent, where were these money used, who were given financial assistance from it, and how much of it is still unspent. -oooACCOUNTING FOR YOLANDA FUND NEEDED: Maybe the government can hire reputable accounting firms to do this accounting, with the participation of interested groups, especially the United Nations. Transparency should be the name of the game now, to assure Yolanda victims and the great mass of our people that the no part of

the donated money was pocketed or diverted by unscrupulous officials. And, so the public may know, here is one message I received just last Saturday, February 15, 2014, from 0999 310 2..7, which said, in a more formal form: “Good afternoon Sir. I just wanted people to know about our complaint: where are the billions and billions of money for Yolanda victims? As of now, we are being given only relief donations. We are patiently occupying tents. They should give us materials or money so we could put up our own houses…” -oooWHY ARE ROAD PROJECTS BEING DONE SI-

Music and its future Have my say Klaus Doring watch the “American Idol” or other shows - and you might understand, what I am talking about! The record companies are still spreading optimism for many years. The fact is: the international music industry nowadays tries to survive by getting “strange” partners, like -some time ago- “T-online” in Germany (what happened to it now?) or “Apple” worldwide, that should ensure new distribution policies. Let’s face it: worldwide new generations grow up focusing on music like a marginal zone. Consumers still want to buy music by listening where ever he or she is right now! Sad to say, it doesn’t matter what kind of music


Special Gospel of the day: Luke13:2230(February18, 2014-Tuesday) Luke 13:22-30-And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem. Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all [ye] workers of iniquity. There shall be “weeping and gnashing of teeth,” when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you [yourselves] thrust out. And they shall come from the east, and [from] the west, and from the north, and [from] the south, and shall sit

the consumer appreciates, but it seems to become a great task for radio stations (also in the Philippines!) simpler to satisfy and lets its listeners enjoy. As I said before: I have been a radio host in the Philippines since almost 14 years now. Listen to radio stations all over this country means experiencing almost “the same’! But, great variety is requested. Or, sad to say, music and its industry have no future if it comes to radio broadcasting. Is television broadcasting in the Philippines better? Yes, there are millions of listeners enjoying the hits of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. Both daily and over and over again?

MULTANEOUSLY? Can anyone tell us why, all of a sudden, there is a rush to start two major road projects that would traverse and thereby cause monstrous traffic jams in Metro Manila’s main highways? I am sure there is a good explanation as to why the two projects are being pursued almost at the same time, without regard for the great inconvenience they will give to everyone in the metropolis? It is of course understandable that there is a real need to pursue these projects, considering the long-term benefits they will give to the whole nation once they are completed. But then, it would seem that the Aquino government did not even consider the possibility that the economic dislocation the projects will cause, while they are being constructed, may outweigh those long-term benefits. For example, it is a fact that with the present See AGAIN, page 7

Many times nowadays, music remains as a cheap extra bonus or free gift and the encore, an uncomfortable and insignificant marginal note on television or an incredible cellphone ring tone. Music, pop or classical music, loves its individual character. If, after the long play records (LPs), the Compact Discs (CDs) will become passe, we must not wonder, if a comping up generation won’t know any band or artist from the 1950s and 1960s or a certain Ludwig van Beethoven or Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Do you like Beethoven, Beach Boys, Bach, Buencamino or the Apo Hiking Society? I do love them all. +++ Email: doringklaus@ or follow me in Facebook or Twitter on tune in to “Classics with Klaus Doring”, Sundays from 9 to 11 am and 7 to 9 pm on 104.3 FM “Edge Radio Davao” or via www.myradiostream. com/edgedavao.

INC group had it for more than 175,000 in a single venue. The INC also surpassed and shattered the current Multiple-Sites record previously held by the Green Communities in Canada who drew 231,635 participants who walked for a minimum of one-kilometer in 1,011 different locations in October 2, 2007 in the Largest Charity Walk in 24 Hours in multiple venue category. The INC Worldwide Walk was staged in 85 locations in the Philippines and 55 more sites around the globe (34 in the USA, six in Europe, 10 in Australia and New Zealand and five in Asia) in a 1.6-kilometer distance and was participated in by more than 500,000 walkers. Ac c o r d i n g t o I N C spokesperson Brother Edwil Zabala, “ this charity walk for a cause is intended to raise funds in order to continue helping those af-

fected by the super-typhoon Yolanda and the primary beneficiaries would be the members of the church (INC) in those affected regions, but it does not mean that they would be the only ones who would benefit from the funds generated because we would do the same even for the nonmembers” he said. INC Executive Minister Eduardo V. Manalo approved recently the holding of the said activity in cooperation with its socio civic arm, the Felix Y. Manalo Foundation. In Misamis Oriental, a huge number of INC “worldwide walkers” clad in white shirts printed with “INC Worldwide Walk for those affected by typhoon Yolanda” gathered at 5 a.m. in Cagayan de Oro City where top INC church officials headed by Brother Renato L. Ubaldo and Brother Felix Bautista, district minister and assistant district minister respectively, with the more than 28,000 participants led the 1.6-kilometer walk at 7 a.m. from the junction of Kauswagan-Puntod bridge in the McArthur park of the provincial capitol compound, the convergence area in Misamis Oriental and nearby cities, municipalities and barangays. Some participants arrived as early as 3 a.m. and others came all the way from the towns of Magsaysay and Manticao, all in Misamis Oriental, just to join the event. “We did not expect to have these numbers of participants,” said Ubaldo adding, “the result was very amazing, even non-members of the church joined us in our cause of helping the needy. He said: “We thank our brothers and sisters who heartily cooperated and made the momentous event a big success, most of all we gave back all the glories to our Lord God!” Several personalities, including LTO-Assistant Regional Director Nelson Manaloto joined in the walk. The INC Executive Minister’s message and compassionate care for fellow countrymen and INC brethren was read before the large crowd that participated at the large INC Worlwide Walk held in 85 sites in the country and 55 more sites abroad. “For our brothers and sisters affected by typhoon Yolanda, this has left an unforgettable experience that reassures them that the executive minister is always within their reach, even though they are physically far distant from him,” said Bautista. For the INC members, the walk-for-a-cause has inspired them even more–– and has encouraged them to reaffirm their faith. “That very moment, you just know that we are one church-we all prayed together, we all worshipped together- even being in dif-

The longest charity walk in multiple venues within 24 hours in different time zones reported no untoward incident related to the event, not even a single pick pocketing or snatching, according to the police. Traffic enforcers from all over the country said the charity walk was peaceful, the traffic was flowing smoothly. The event was covered by giant media networks while SGV (Sycip Gorres Velayo & Co.) observed the counting of the participants. Leo Matignas, SGV spokesman said, those who joined the walk were counted through the wristband that the organizers provided. The INC activity is just one of the many events lined up for its Centennial Celebration on July 27, 2014.

Mayor Uy, however, said that the congresswoman has maintained good working relations with the governor of the province who belongs to the Padayon Pilipino party and 1st Dsitrict Congressman Peter M. Unabia of the Liberal Party. Mayor Uy said the governance of the congresswoman is not partisan politics but service to the people. He said she will remain an independent candidate with no local political party but she has alliance in the national level. “She helps the mayors of the second district who belong to political parties, whether partymates of the

governor or not,” he said. In a related development, the residents affected by the recent soil erosion in sitio Madrid have been given options by the municipal government of Villanueva. Mayor Uy said the 20 families affected have been made to choose cash assistance or relocation to another site. The families are still temporarily housed at the municipal gym following their evacuation during the heavy rains last January brought by a low pressure area and typhoon.

windows, seeing them how they worsen traffic and demanding amounts from drivers. “Barking” is the practice of soliciting passengers by shouting out the destination. “The jeepney barkers don’t know it, but I am right there where they are. I roam around to see the real situation of the city,” Duterte said in last Sunday’s “Gikan sa Masa, Para sa Masa” television show. “If I see you being abusive on the streets, ipaligis ‘ta mo (I will have you run over),” Duterte warned. Duterte added that he was aware that he would face the Commission on Human Rights’ ire once again for making such a public statement. The mayor made the statement as a follow-up of his stern warning last week to 41 jeepney barkers caught in several areas of the city. Duterte said that he just tolerated the practice because it’s an honest way of

living as long as the jeepneys do not cause gridlock. City Police Director Vicente Danao said that the barkers were apprehended after numerous complaints from citizens reaching the police office via their “Isumbong kay City Director hotlines.” The hotline involves phone numbers, as well as a Twitter page and a Facebook page. “You’re contributing to the congestion because you detain and you dilly-dally the movements and mobility of the vehicles,” Duterte said. The mayor said the practice of waiting for passengers along busy intersections contribute to heavy traffic in the city. “I don’t like it when the barkers demand their price. Another problem is when the barkers stop the drivers from leaving by blocking their vehicles,” Duterte said. Duterte said he was also angered by reports that barkers touch women passengers to let them into the vehicles. “That’s bad manners. Binastos ba,” he said. The mayor, however, said he understood the situation of the barkers, saying barking is neither sanctioned nor allowed. However, Duterte said that he would consider prohibiting “barking” if the reports of abuse continue. “I know that you are all working hard for your day’s salary,” he said. “But if you mess around, things will change,” he warned.

Gunmen seize couple in Southern Philippines


AMBOANGA CITY – Unidentified gunmen abducted a Filipino couple shortly after they arrived by boat at dawn Sunday in the southern province of Sulu, police said.

Police said Bonifacio Salinas, 54, and his wife, Claire, just returned home from Zamboanga City and were about to enter their house in Patikul town when gunmen seized them. “We are investigating the motive of the abduction and who were behind it,” Senior Superintendent Abraham Orbita, the provincial police chief, told the regional newspaper Mindanao Examiner. He said the couple, who works at the Jolo Mainland Water District, were seized in the village of Kasalamatan by five gunmen who dragged them to a waiting jeep. No individual or group claimed resp onsibility for the latest abduction, but previous cases in the province have been largely blamed to the Abu Sayyaf, a small, but the most notorious rebel group specializing in ransom kidnappings and terrorism.

CAJUTOL, registered owner of a parcel of land covered by TCT No. RT49567 with an area of 176 square meters, situated at Ampayon, Butuan City, has lost in his possession unnoticed aforesaid land title owner’s duplicate certificate copy, and states that no deed or other instrument affecting the property has been presented for registration or if there is any, the nature hereof, the date of its presentation, as well as the name of the parties and the registration of such deed or instrument is still pending accomplishment; that the owner’s duplicate certificate or coowner’s duplicate is in due form without any intentional alteration or erasures; that the certificate of title is not the subject of litigation or investigation administrative or judicial, regarding the genuiness of due executive or issuance; that the certificate of title was in full force and effect at the time it was lost or destroyed; that the real estate taxes have been fully paid up to at least, two (2) years prior to filing for reconstitution; and that he has executed an affidavit in connection with his petition for administrative reconstitution of the owner’s duplicate certificate of TCT No. RT-49567, per Doc.

Sulu policemen patrol the sea near Patikul town.

In December, police in Sulu arrested an Abu Sayyaf member Haik Asgali alias Abu Aswad who was implicated in the February 2012 kidnapping in Tawi-Tawi province of two European wildlife photographers Ewold Horn, 52, from Holland; and Lorenzo Vinciguerre, 47, from Switzerland. Asgali, who was captured in Jolo town, is a nephew of Abu Sayyaf leader Radulan Sahiron.

The two foreigners, along with their Filipino guide Ivan Sarenas, 35, were abducted at gunpoint by five men in the coastal village of Parangan in Panglima Sugala town while taking photographs of wild birds, and handed them over to the Abu Sayyaf. Sarenas managed to escape, but the fate of the two foreigners is unknown. The Abu Sayyaf also kidnapped the provincial treasurer of Sulu, Jess Ca-

Zambo fire official advises public to be extra cautious during blackouts ZAMBOANGA CITY –A top official of the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) has advised the public to exercise extra caution during blackouts especially if they rely on candles or gas lamps to prevent occurrence of fire. Supt. Dominador Zabala, Jr., fire marshal of the BFP’s Zamboanga City Fire District (ZCFD), issued the advice since residents of this city are again experiencing from four to five hours daily rotational blackout. “If p o s s i b l e , t h e y should use rechargeable lanterns and not candles since there were several

fire incidents in the past originated from unattended candles,” Zabala said.

He said it is best also to turn off the main switch during blackouts to avoid power surge when electricity service resumes. “The electrical con-

nections must also be in accordance to specifications and inspected by licensed electricians,” he added. In case of fire, Zabala said they should immediately call the nearest fire station. The ZCFD has seven fire stations located in the barangays of Sta. Maria, Tetuan, Ayala, Manicahan, Quiniput, Vitali, and downtown area. The ZCFD also maintains s e ven f ire substations located in the barangays of Guiwan, Boalan, Sta. Catalina, Upper Calarian, Recodo, Talisayan, and Mercedes. (PNA)

IS A BRILLIANCE FILTERING Duterte wants to be ‘diplomatic’ LOVETO LIVE Valentine 2014 re unpaid real property taxes


AVAO CITY – Mayor Rodrigo R. Duterte said the government should negotiate with businesses first regarding unpaid taxes before using its powers to auction or adding surcharges to the delinquent accounts.

This comes a week after it was revealed at the City Council that the City Treasurer's Office (CTO) listed P1.12 billion in uncollected real property taxes.

Speaking at the weekly 'Gikan sa Masa, Para sa Masa' television show last Sunday, Duterte said that while it was the exclusive domain of the local government, it could also adopt a more diplomatic means to collect the taxes. Vice Mayor Paolo Z. Duterte said in a privilege speech at the Sangguniang Panlungsod last week that he was concerned about the delinquencies and asked the CTO to step up collections or leave office. “We can ask them to pay the taxes slowly and schedule the payments,” the mayor said. He added he was also considering the condonation of penalties, but that

the government should still charge the penalties. “The surcharges, we can do away with,” Duterte said. Mayor Duterte said the city government could be more “diplomatic” about the tax collections. “That's not how to run a city,” the mayor said. “Enter into a compromise, make a schedule, and hope they follow what is specified there,” he said. Vice Mayor Duterte said the city council could be forced to “use all applicable powers of the law” and said the body could amend the Tax Code so that collections by the CTO would be enhanced.

The protoplasm of life is love, for it is love that serves us the common denominator of existence. The procreation is “stirred” with immeasurable love beyond human comprehension. It is the expression of eternity where love has not begun and will never find its end. The center point of man’s earnestness is the survival to perpetuate the good that God wants to vindicate and reflects his own goodness. Under our stewardship, we are expected to do anything in the good for us to gain spiritual merit and to radiate to others to collectively enjoy the reward is heaven. The origin of St. Valentine is reckoned between the second and the third country of the two bishop, named valentine who where martyred as they were spreading the Gospel to the heart hens. They died because of the profound love of JESUS THE REDEEMER. Such significant virtue of love was carried on and it was easier for the pagans to embrace the Catholic religion because of the similarity of love that any human being has sought for irresistibly like the good of an act. The pagans celebrate Valentine with the belief that human world not be overtaken by the birds which were observed to mate about this season when both the temporal and spiritual world

have reached to those levels from at least 60,000 accounts out of the city's 7 out of 11 districts, according to finance committee chair Danilo Dayanghirang. According to a copy of a list of real property tax delinquencies per district, Poblacion District had the most delinquencies, at P483,637,744.90, with Buhangin District with the second highest at P359,813,423.26. Agdao district's collectibles have reached P99,629,015.81, w hi le Bu n aw an d i st r i c t h a s P94,197,059.69. Calinan district has P52,642,397.13 in collectibles, while Baguio and Paquibato districts have P15,172,023.21 and P10,069,666.44, respectively. The data distributed by the finance committee compiled partial information from the CTO, as of December 31, 2013. This accounted for only 7 out of the city's 11 treasury districts. Dayanghirang said his office was still compiling data that they received from the CTO. City Treasurer Rodrigo Riolo said in a telephone interview that there was still a need to clean up the information they received, clarifying that the CTO data is based on the report by the City Assessor's Office. There could have been data that was redundant, he said. CTO Real Property Unit acting chief Victor Ranada said the redundant or duplicated data could have bloated the total amount and that they were working on cleaning up the data. Ranada also cited that there could have been properties that were assessed in one name and declared delinquent but was transferred in another name with the new taxpayer already paying the amount. “All data stems from the tax declarations,” Ranada said.

6th Cinema Rehiyon kicks off today, February 18. Under the auspices of Xavier University - Ateneo de Cagayan’s Xavier Center for Culture and the Arts (XCCA), the film harvest is one of the few festivals in the country seeking to educate and empower the Filipino audience with regional stories, pride for local culture and artistic works that exist outside the realm of the capitalistic mainstream cinema. “Cinema Rehiyon 6 features filmmaking frontiers that could give positive imp ac t and t ransfor m our lives for the better. These films will educate us about disaster risk reduction management, climate change, cultural solidarity and other societal issues,” Hobart Savior, XCCA director said on this year’s theme, “Filming the Frontiers.” From professionals, students, experimental and full-lengths, the event offers a total of 98 films, the highest number of entries since its inception in 2009. The movie screenings run for 5 days, from Feb 18-22 at three different venues simultaneously—Xavier University Little Theater (XULT), SM City Cagayan de Oro Cinema 3 and 4. Over the years, Cinema Rehiyon has attracted a growing number of storytellers, especially the students to express their ideas through films. “Why can’t we tell our own story? Why does it have to be Manila-made?” cha l lenge d Dr Miguel “Mike” Rapatan, chairman of the National Commission on Cinema, adding that today’s generation must produce stories with logical sense and social relevance. Cinema Rehiyon forms part of the Philippine Arts Festival (PAF) celebration “Art on the Edge” of the National C ommission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), in line with Presidential Proclamation 683 of 1991. Emerging Talents Among the most anticipated films this year is “Ang Walay Kahumanang Ad-

law” (Infinite Sun) which director Glenmark “Marky” Doromal described as a love stor y close to the experimental genre with many metaphorical elements and patches of memories. Considered one of the country’s emerging talents, Marky started his filmmaking stint during his high school years at Mindanao State University - Iligan Institute of Technology (MSU-IIT). “I was in high school when I made my first film, “Sealed” together with classmates, as a requirement for a subject. It was not perfect; I had a lot of flaws directing my first short film at a very young age,” he recalled. “Nonetheless, I wanted to showcase my wildest imagination for an ambitious project. It gave me more than what I expected. It served as a launch pad that gained me a scholarship at De La Salle - College of Saint Benilde for a filmmaking program (BA Digital Filmmaking), after joining Cinemagis and Cinema Rehiyon in 2010,” added Doromal who just graduated this year. Cinemagis Short Film F e s t i v a l i n No r t h e r n Mindanao was crafted in the same year as Cinema Rehiyon and top student filmmakers were offered scholarships to pursue the craft of filmmaking. 19-year-old Marky admits he is still building his own aesthetics in gradual pace and keeps himself open to experimenting with various techniques, depending on the demands of the story he wants to tell. “Filmmaking is very tricky and you could think of a thousand ways to make a film. Right now, I am closer to utilizing visionary or very imaginative elements like there’s some kind of adrenaline to my films … because my heart is in science fiction ever since I was a kid,” he said. True enough, Marky’s first ever love story shot in Iligan City reaped a rundown of awards during the 2013 Mindanao Film Festival in Davao City where it won Best Film, along with 5 major awards. Recently, it garnered the awards for Best Actress and Best Production Design at the Nabunturan Film Expo (Simballay Festival), also in Davao City and 3rd Place Short Fiction at the 25th Gawad CCP for Alternative Film and Video. London-educated filmmaker Gray-em Erezo joins this year’s fest with “Lugdang” (Drowned), inspired by a distressed girl he met at CDO’s Divisoria in 2012. “She was like mentally drowned,” Erezo emphasized. “I used the word ‘drowned’ because she was drowned physically, mentally and emotionally. She could not even talk. She lost her family during the flash flood brought about

by [Typhoon] Sendong.” For tackling the aftermath of the catastrophe, “Lugdang” received the 2014 Cinemagis Special Jury Award for Social Responsibility on Climate Change. A mosaic of different cultures With screenings expanding every year, local audiences are also growing to match the rise in film quality. The festival also features a menu of seminars and workshops for aspiring moviemakers and actors in CineLikha with veteran actors Leo Martinez and Rex Cortez as resource speakers and mentors. This year’s CineTalakayan focuses on the fusion of DRMM and films to compliment the CineBarangay film-showings to be held in two communities ravaged by Sendong, Brgy Balulang and Xavier Ecoville, the XU-led resettlement village in Brgy Lumbia. “Part of CineBarangay is giving the communities a multimedia forum on climate change resiliency and disaster risk reduction management,” Savior added. Moviegoers are only required to bring personal care items for their admission to the screening venues, which will be donated to t he Yolanda-lashe d places in the Visayas. This event serves as a platform for filmmakers not just to come together but also to share common

WHAT IS A TEACHER? By Merlisa G. Tala

struggles and challenges and interact with their audience.” In the face of globalization, both Dr Rapatan and Savior believe that the interest for regional films among Filipinos must be ignited and rekindled. On top of the concerns of the Philippine independent filmmaking industry is how to engage the younger generations to Cinema Rehiyon and the other festivals alike. “We are a mosaic of different cultures and we should showcase that to our country,” Dr Rapatan stated. “We need to get the word out that our culture— the Filipino culture— is much more complex, much more diverse and richer than those being shown in the commercial films.” For more information about the festival, visit

Transformational Leadership: Key to Quality Education By LOU Q. PALMA Kisolon Central Elementary School, Sumilao District

A good leader is a good follower. In the Philippine educational system, what have we done to lead our learners? Teaching- if we do it right- is tough. One is challenged to face individuals with different needs, strengths, weaknesses, interests, culture, family background and pace of learning. This is a great call for teachers that needs- mind, body and soul to devout for the betterment of the learners. Through our new curriculum, we have better hone the pupils to become great leaders in different leaning areas and discipline; English, Science, Mathematics, and even Entrepreneurship. By merely asking a pupil to lead a prayer or song is a way for him to be confident. This confidence maybe developed more if done daily. Aristotle, Einstein, and Gandhi, etc. are great leaders in their respective forte. Yes, they have been gone

for so many years, yet we still follow their path to excellence especially in education and humanity. They were the leaders who were not afraid to take the step even if it wasn’t that acceptable to many. Schools that prosper are run by the transformed leaders. They are the ones who are not afraid of taking risks just to commit success. Transformed leaders help the whole DepEd family to achieve quality education, thus, an immense way must be given to them. We need them especially because of the crisis our country is facing today. The harrowing experiences of the Filipino today call for an urgency to address the need. In the school, we can show to the children that they’re worthwhile and let us allow them to learn the best of what they could that they couldn’t learn elsewhere. Let’s give them that chance. Teach the children to read, for tomorrow they will lead. Be transformed. Be a leader.
