Construction of P2.6b Oro ‘skyway’ pushed By CRIS DIAZ Executive Editor
CAGAYAN de Oro City--A lawmaker here is pushing for the construction of a 2.4 kilometer Skyway that would cost P 2.6 billion to ease the traffic congestion in the central district of this trading hub in Northern Mindanao. Rep. Rufus Rodriguez, 2nd District of Cagayan De Oro, said on Tuesday that he has requested the Department of Public Works and Highway (DPWH) to fast track the inclusion of the project in the DPWH budget for 2015. He said that the proposed Skyway would be known as the “JR BorjaCarmen-Patag Skyway”, which would start from JR Borja Extension near a private hospital that would pass through the Cogon Market toward the JR Borja Bridge.
“The initial program of works would be the first approach of the first section with a linear length of 1.6 kilometers,” Rodriguez added. Rodriguez said that the second approach of the first section will follow the existing Max Suniel Street that intersects with Villarin Street in Carmen with a linear length of 1.26 kilometers. The second section will start from Villarin Street near the country hotel in Barangay Patag after the army’s 4th Infantry Division road with a length of 780 meters long. According to Rodrigue z, t he Sky way w i l l ease traffic in the city’s commercial district and allows the smooth and expedited transport of goods and services that would certainly benefit the city’s economy. He said he has also
requested the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) to endorse the Cagayan De Oro City Skyway, the first
Skyway in Mindanao, to the Department of Budget and Management. “I would discuss with the DPWH Secretary Ro-
gelio Singson and Under Secretar y Romy Momo for the possible sources to fund the Cagayan De Oro Skyway,” Rodriguez said.

Misor to deliver basic services to Balingoan MISAMIS Oriental––The provincial government of Misamis Oriental has scheduled the next delivery of medical and social services to the coastal town of Balingoan, some 100 kms east of the provincial capitol in Cagayan De Oro City on Friday. Governor Yevgeny Vincente Emano said on Tuesday that provincial government expects to deliver the free medical and social outreach program to the town’s nine fishing and farming villages there. He said that the provincial government would deliver the basic government services directly to the village people of Balingoan. The services include free circumcision, free body massage, free haircut, free distribution of fruit and vegetable seedlings for upland and lowland farmers, free medical consultation with free medicines, free eye check up and eyeglasses, and supplemental feeding, the Governor said. He said that a mass wedding is also scheduled for those who were living together without the benefit of church and civil marriage. “We are going to provide the newlywed couples with free cakes,” Emano said.. The provincial program dubbed as “Bililhon Ang Matag Baryohanon Ipalambo Sa Misamis Oriental” (The people in the villages are invaluable) or acronym “BAMBI” in MisOr, has already benefited some 10,000 provincial residents in two municipal towns since its launching two months ago. Emano said that the delivery of basic services to the people in the province far flung villages is part of the commitment of his administration to serve the people for as long as he is the governor of Misamis Oriental.

Obama asks PHL to join trade pact
Solon asks House to take on reforms in Charter’s economic provisions
ays after US President Barack Obama’s visit, Va l e n z u e l a C i t y R e p. Sherwin T. Gatchalian urged the House to immediately discuss on the floor the easing of the Constitution’s economic provisions to prepare for the TransPacific Partnership (TPP). The TPP is described by the Foreign Affairs department as “a highstandard trade arrangement that will shape the global and regional economic architecture in the 21st century.” During the joint press conference last week, Obama urged Pres. Benigno S.C. Aquino III to “seize the opportunity he’s (Aquino) created by opening the next phase of economic reform and growth.” If the countr y joins t h e T P P, it w i l l h av e access to a market of 800 million consumers, said US Ambassador to the Philippines Philip Goldberg in a meeting with the Makati Business Club last February. However, becoming a member to the 12-nation economic blo c, w hich already includes Singapore, Viet Nam, and Malaysia, is not easy as it requires implementation of “marketliberalizing measures,” the ambassador added. Gatchalian, a majority member for the House
committee on Trade and Industry, asked the chamber to discuss proposed economic reforms in the Constitution soon, noting it is a step to membership in the TPP. “The House must grab the chance to bring a significant economic improvement to the Philippines by enabling the country to join the TPP. One measure we should do to be a TPP member is to relax the restrictive economic provisions in the Constitution. Time is of the essence here, so the matter should be immediately discussed on the floor,” he said. Gatchalian explained the benefits of joining the TPP: “The trade pact will boost the demand for local products once we reach more consumers and in turn will create muchneeded jobs. The country stands to gain a lot from joining the partnership and may incur a significant opportunity loss if it does not.” He added that the TPP will improve the country’s foreign direct investment (FDI) record, which stood at nearly $2.8 billion in 2012 (preliminary, total net inflow) compared to Singapore’s $56.17 billion and even Viet Nam’s $8.37 billion, based on data from the Association of Southeast
Zamboanga City marks increase in business permits registration in Q1 By R.G. Antonet A. Go
ZAMBOANGA City The city government has marked an increase of 1,291 business permits that were registered during the first quarter of this year compared to that of the previous period. City Permits and Licensing Division (CPLD) chief Benjie Barredo made the announcement Tuesday (May 6), citing the registered business permits for the first quarter of this year have reached 7,923 compared to that of the same period last year of 6,632. Barredo attributed the increase to the 30-minute scheme adopted by his office in processing business permit whether it is
for renewal or new application. Under the 30-minute scheme, Barredo’s office immediately issues a temporary permit to operate a business and the businessmen were given three months to complete and submit their requirements. The temporary permit is deemed revoked once they fail to secure and submit all the requirements to the CPLD in three months’ time. Barredo said that majority of the businesses that were registered during the first quarter of this year are food establishments, internet cafes, and sarisari stores. He said they are targeting to register at least 10,000 businesses this year. (PNA)
Asian Nations (ASEAN). “ Tr a d e b e n e f it s a l l partners. The trade pact will allow for increased FDI as businessmen will invest their mone y in the Philippines and open shops here. Job creation is stimulated as a result.”
Land ownership However, Gatchalian stood firm in his conviction that foreign ownership of land should be left out of the equation. “If we allow foreign businessmen to acquire land, unemployment will

Iligan City public plaza improvements
ILIGAN City - One of the landmarks in Iligan City is the public plaza also known as Rizal Park. It is strategically located in the heart of the downtown area just across the famous Maria Cristina Hotel – the city’s oldest hotel. The City plaza is a rectangular park surrounded with trees, a stage at one end and a gazebo at the other end. It is quite a popular site for recreation, political, cultural, and spiritual activities. The public plaza also serves as the venue of the
BORN to Speak the Speech By ronald l. ampong
WE ARE BORN UNIQUE! The ability to speak distinguishes human beings from all other inhabitants of this planet. Other creatures’ communicate by barking, whistling, moving, and howling, BUT only humans use the spoken words. Communication always begins with the - self. How you see yourself can make a great difference on how you communicate with your friends, families and communities. As, persons our understanding of the word is limited by our experiences. Every day we experience the centrality of ourselves in speech. As a participant of communication, you are limited to your own point of view of the situation. The DepEd Order 31 s. 2012 highlights on Mother Tongue as Medium of instruction and as a Subject, this would mean that Mother Tongue shall be used as a medium of instruction and as a subject from Grades 1 to 3. English or Filipino shall be used from Grades
4 to 10. The major goal of using MTB-MLE in teaching is to enhance learners’ proficiency level on fluency and comprehension skills. Through this program it can be observed that our young children have better learning, wider understanding, able to express themselves and most especially they gain self-confidence. This is a perfect manifestation and indication that the program enhances knowledge and self-esteem among pupils. Human communication is indeed a real gift across -all organization, academe, religious community, etc. According to DTM George Yen, “we are aware of speaking in different context and we understand that the listener holds a different understanding, However, when we speak to another person in our own culture, we tend to assume the listener is a replica of ourselves.” DTM George added, “there are four essential keys in communication, namely: 1.) build self-awareness; 2.) listen with empathy; 3.)

take an attitude of equality; and 4.) bring assumptions out into the open.” Speak the speech as I pronounced it to you, trippingly on the tongue. (Shakespeare, Hamlet). How important is communication/speaking to human beings? Can you imagine life without any communication, when you speak? Communication/ speaking would improve the way people view themselves and the way others view them, enhance your human relationships as you communicate, learn important life skills, exercise their constitutionally guaranteed freedom of speech, and help people succeed professionally. There would be no more second thought, no more fear, and more no doubt, if you ably understand why you are communicating or speaking. Being an educator let us make a lead - let us be a model of good communication, let us make a historic occurrence by carrying on the power of speaking.
popular weekend night market. Through the years, the public plaza has undergone several facelifts under different city administrations. Just a few months ago, the bronze bust of Rizal has been removed and a new man-size statue has
been put in place. At present another development is being undertaken. The project is a joint commitment by the national and local government. The purpose of the project is to build a roof over a portion of the open
area near the stage, once completed, people watching performances at the plaza will no longer endure the heat from the sun or rain while viewing stage shows or other events. The shelter can also be used as an exhibition area or an evacuation center. (Alingatong)

Spirituality in our time
Spirituality from the language of the Christian faith is understood to mean God’s good relationship with humanity, humanity’s good relationship with each other and humanity’s good relationship with the rest of God’s creation. For the purpose of this column, let us focus our mind and heart with humanity’s supposed good relationship with the rest of God’s creation. God, as far as the Christian faith is concerned, is the creator of everything hence that religion’s dictum that humanity is only a steward of the entire creation and can never be its owner. This dictum is ironically more honored by the natives of
A deeper view Jesse E.L. Bacon II Cordillera-Ifugao area in northern Luzon than anywhere else in the country where Christianity is more pronounced. The Cordillera-Ifugao people, for example, strongly believe that they can’t own the land they till for it is owned by the super natural being they consider as God. On the other hand,
their belief is that it is the land that owns them hence the naked truth that from dust humans shall likewise return to dust. This is the dictum that enabled the Ifugaonons to build the majestic rice terraces. Those rice paddies carved out of the side of the mountain like stairways to heaven are owned by
the community and never by any person on account of that dictum that should have been Christianity’s but which is honored by Christians more in the breach than in its observance. The inability of the Christian populace to live out this Christian dictum is the biggest culprit why we now have this phenomenon known as climate change. This phenomenon is the culprit why the world’s climate has become unpredictable even to those whose expertise is to predict climate’s predictability. The inability of the Christian populace to embrace the teachings of their faith is likewise the reason See TIME, page 11

9.5 M voters face disenfranchisement
LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective…” (James 5:16, the Holy Bible). -ooo-
9.5 MILLION VOTERS FACE DISENFRANCHISEMENT: Chairman Sixto Brillantes Jr. of the Commission on Elections must be joking, in an early morning radio interview as the poll body kicked off its registration campaign last May 06, 2014, when he disclosed that he and his fellow commissioners are requiring some 9.5 million Filipino voters to undergo “biometric” registration, or face disenfranchisement in the 2016 presidential elections.
Kakampi mo ang batas Atty. Batas Mauricio Brillantes said these 9.5 million voters appear to have been registered for the 2013 midterm elections. But Comelec records indicate that their “biometrics” have not been taken yet. “Biometrics” means the Comelectaken picture of the voter, as well as his thumbmarks and electronic signature recorded by Comelec machines. These “biometrics data” are intended to prevent
flying voters, or any other fraud in elections. But, be that as it may, is it not too harsh a penalty for Comelec to be disenfranchising voters, all of 9.5 million of them, for the 2016 elections solely on the ground that their “biometrics” had not been recorded by the poll body? Wow, something awful appears to be going on insofar as the 2016 elections are
concerned, which maybe more awful than the “6030-10” ratio of votes that statisticians discovered in the 2013 elections. -oooCORNEJO, VHONG IN ONE BIG MOVIE? Did Deniece Cornejo’s surrender benefit her in any way in connection with the nonbailable serious illegal detention charge she is now facing before the Taguig City Regional Trial Court? Normally, when an accused in a criminal case surrenders to the police before being arrested, that voluntary surrender has the effect of lessening the penalty of imprisonment that will be imposed by the court.

the time asking you, if you enjoy floods? During that time, I recalled the opinion of then Regional Director of the Government Bureau Weather Bureau, Gerry Pedrico, saying, squarely blaming the weather “especially in Region XI” (?, really only there?), is because of climate change!” And then? Do you still remember? Heavy rains triggered heavy floodings and landslides. The Davao river swept away many houses and people. And, not only this river. Many of us breathed a sigh of relief - but one can see already the next dark clouds in the sky. Maybe you consider my headline a little bit sarcastic. Maybe it sounds like a “curtain lecture”. It might sound as a “love’s labor lost”... . Much ado about nothing? Really? As Th. Campbell said in his “Lochiel’s Warning,” Coming events cast their shadows before”. No to floods! To be continued!

BFAR in Region 11 installs new Mangingisdang Direktor DAVAO CITY - The installation of the new “Mangingisdang Direktor” or Fisherfolk Director on Monday signaled the start of the nationwide celebration of the Farmers' and Fisherfolk's Month in Region XI. “The installation of Gonzalo Remorta Jr. as Mangingisdang Director for 2014 today is part of the nationwide celebration of Farmers' and Fisherfolk's Month,” Bu re au of F i she r i e s and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) XI Project Leader Raul Millana said. Remorta, a fisherfolk from Padada, Davao del Sur, is set to experience how it is to become the director of BFAR for a specific period through the Mangingisdang Direktor program. “This is one way to let the fisherfolk get a hands-on experience on how the Bureau is being run since he will get to enjoy the functions of the director albeit a limited one,” Millana said. Buenaventura Maiz, the Mangingisdang Director for 2013, turned over the position and
its responsibilities to Remorta. Remorta is head of the Padada Municipal Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Management Council. Millana said they have many activities lined up for Remorta such as mangrove planting in various areas in the region. He said mangroves are not only good as fish sanctuaries but have proven to be effective in the prevention of flooding and storm surges. He said the Fisherfolk Director Program is made possible through the Department of Agriclture Special order No. 88 which mandates the fisherfolk director to handle the basic administrative and ceremonial functions of the office. Millana said it is important that fisherfolk also experience the work of BFAR people so they know how government operates. This way, he added, they will be able to closely coordinate with BFAR and relate to government procedures while pushing their programs. (PNA)

NPA rebels capture soldier in Davao del Norte D AVAO CITY – Communist rebels have captured a government soldier who was accused of protecting logging operations in Davao del Norte province.
A r i s F r a n c i s c o, a spokesman for the New People’s Army, said illegal drugs were also seized from the soldier who was identified as Corporal Rogelio Rosales, a member of the 60th Infantry Battalion operating in Davao and Compostela Valley provinces. He said Rosales, who has been declared a prisoner of war, was arrested in the village of Florida in Kapalong town while he was fixing the transit of logs in the area. “Prisoner of War Ro-
sales was on the process of arranging for the transit of logs when apprehended by the NPA. A sachet of shabu was also found in his possession, proof that soldiers who are coddling big loggers in the province, were also into the illegal drug trade,” Francisco said in a statement sent late Monday to the regional newspaper Mindanao Examiner. The arrest of Rosales came nearly two weeks after rebels freed another soldier Sergeant Jeric Curay, who was also captured at a checkpoint in the village of Andap in Compostela Valley’s Laak town on April 4. Curay, a member of the 72nd Infantry Battalion, was released to Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, who negotiated with the rebels for the soldier’s freedom. Francisco said the Ro-
sales is part of a gang of soldiers under the 60th and 72nd Infantry Battalions protecting logging operations in the provinces. “Thus, in the face of brazen abuse of power and wanton disregard of the environmental preservation, the NPA perseveres in imposing its total log ban campaign and carrying out punitive sanctions against the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the big logging lords.” “To protect the remaining forest covers, campaign for reforestation, stop abusive large-scale logging, and secure the livelihood of the masses through sustainable communal farming, the NPA Sub-regional Command
strongly enforces its total log ban policy,” Francisco said. Just recently, three soldiers were also wounded in a rebel attack in the village of Napungas in Davao del Norte’s Asuncion town where they ambushed a military patrol. The military’s Eastern Mindanao Command and the 10th Infantry Division which have operation control in the area did not give any statement about the arrest of the soldier and accusations against them. The NPA has been fighting for decades now for the establishment of its own communist state in the country. (Mindanao Examiner)

New Interactive Sculpture Park rises on Paoay sand dunes PAOAY, Ilocos Norte, -— To inspire creativity and innovation among thousands of Ilocanos, guests and visitors at the grandest Ilocos Norte celebration, the provincial government of Ilocos Norte is giving a new twist to this year’s iconic “Himala” (miracle) festival with lots of surprises in a whole day of fun-filled activities. Using recycled and scrap materials gathering dust and corrugated at the Provincial Engineering Office, the Paoay Interactive Sculpture Park opens on May 10 as one of the added attractions in this year’s provincial festival. June Arvin Gudoy, chief of the Communications and Media Office of the Ilocos Norte government, said the Paoay Interactive Sculpture Park particularly dedicated to kids and young adults is composed of an old water tank, old window panes and so much more. Launched in 2012, this year’s second “Himala sa Buhangin” hopes to make world-class events at the famous Paoay sand dunes, attracting a growing number of tourists and investors as well. Inspired by the province patron saint, La Milagrosa, the Himala sa Buhangin festival highlights the tourism potential of the Paoay sand dunes not just as a
perfect venue for international and local films such as an Oscar-nominated Hollywood film’s Born on the Fourth of July, top-billed by Tom Cruise for which Barangay Suba stood for locations in Vietnam and Mexico. “The futuristic Australian action film ‘Mad Max’ starred by Mel Gibson, was also filmed here including Roger Corman’s and Cirio H. Santiago’s ‘Stryker’. Local movies such as “Ang Panday” fantasy films of Fernando Poe Jr. to Joey Gosiengfiao’s “Temptation Island,” Ishmael Bernal’s acclaimed drama “Himala” and Elwood Perez’s “Silip” were also shot in the province. More recently, the “Panday” franchise of Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., Chito Roño’s musical “Emir,” Chris Martinez’s remake of “Temptation Island,” and Paul Soriano’s sports drama “Thelma” featured the province and its unique tourist spots – such as the picturesque Paoay Church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the Bangui, among others. Other activities during the May 10 festival include: an exciting venue for 4x4 racing competitions, sand castle making, sand boarding, zorb riding and other forms of arts and entertainment like belly and fire dancing.(PNA) CTB/ LGA/JSD

Sicogon land dispute has no effect on northern Iloilo tourism, says DOT ILOILO CITY, The present land dispute and tension at the controversial Sicogon Island in Carles, Iloilo would not affect the entire tourism industry of the province particularly in northern Iloilo, the Department of Tourism 6 (DOT-6) said. DOT-6 director Atty. Helen Catalbas stressed the island’s redevelopment could not be stopped but the Sicogon Development Corp. (Sideco) of the Sarrosa family should also do its part in providing for the needs of those families who were displaced by a development project. Catalbas said the joint venture between the Sideco and its investor – the Ayala Land Inc. - is now being finalized. “The tension will not affect totally the tourist destinations of Carles and its neighboring towns of Concepcion and Ajuy where most tourists go for adventure,” she said. Catalbas mentioned the Isla de Gigantes in Carles where the Tangke Salt Wa-
ter Lagoon that is attracting local and foreign tourists, is located. There is also the town of Concepcion, where most island villages have white-sand beaches like the islands of Tambaliza, Agho, Bolobadiangan, and Polopiña, among others. The nearby Ajuy town
SIDECO assured displaced residents of training that will equip them with skills needed for employment for a five-star hotel, airport and seaport, construction of which will reportedly start anytime on the island while others will be given a fishing livelihood program. (PNA)

siege. The security of the people is paramount,” she added. During the press briefing, Acting City Police Director Col. Angelito Casimiro and Task Force Zamboanga Commander Col. Andrelino Colina also gave their views corroborating the mayor’s stand on the issue. Col. Casimiro said upon review of the MAP request for rally, various discrepancies were noticed. For one, in cases of any eventuality, the authorities cannot pinpoint responsibility as the letter was signed by MAP chairman Addulmanan Gayak but the same is being followed up by Saudi Daranda of the Mindanao Action for Peace and Development (MAPAD). The letter was submitted to City Hall only at 4pm Friday, May 2. The representatives of the organizers present during the meeting were Daranda, Taha Paranda who is the SecretaryGeneral of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) in Zamboanga, Hatta Said of MAP and a representative of the Al Mhuminat, a women group. According to Casimiro, the representatives of the organizer would not also present the proposed rally’s program flow, the names of the resource persons including the expected number of participants. “We cannot compromise security,” the acting police director added.(Sheila Covarrubias)

However, since Cornejo’s case involves a capital offense where the capital penalty of life imprisonment is the mandated sentence if she is proven guilty, there could be no reduction in the penalty of life imprisonment. So, she actually gained nothing from that voluntary surrender, except maybe a little peace of mind because she will no longer be in the run. But, I believe that all of this is actually much ado about nothing. Why? I am convinced that because they are all in the glitzy world of show business where the only thing that really matters is the box office earning of any actress or actor or of any film, their differences could be patched up and then they would all even be featured in a big movie. Indeed, there is no business like show business, right? -oooTHE RAPTURE, AND HOW IT WILL HAPPEN: And now, a brief reminder from 1 Thessalonians 4 of the Bible: “Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. “According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen
asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. “After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.

our more and ore polluted atmosphere? While writing this piece, heat kills me and millions and more. Do you remember the time asking you, if you enjoy floods? During that time, I recalled the opion of then Regional Director of the Government Bureau Weather Bureau, Gerry Pedrico, saying, squarely blaming the weather “especially in Region XI” (?, really only there?), is because of climate change!” An then? Do you still remember? Heavy rains triggeheir shadows red floodings and landslides. The Davao river swept away many houses and people. And, not only this river. Many of us breathed a sigh of relief - but one can see already the next dark clouds at the sky. Maybe you consider my headline a little bit sarcastic. Maybe it sounds like a “curtain lecture”. It might sounds as a “love’s labour lost” ... . Much ado about nothing? Really? As Th. Campbell said in his “Lochiel’s Warning,” Coming events cast their shadows before”. No to floods!

why today’s natural calamities are becoming worse where typhoon Yolanda’s fury and its resultant disaster and tragedy is expected to be the norm in future calamities. All these are traceable to humanity’s failure to appreciate that the rest of God’s creation is there to support life and thus should be cared for as well by every human being. The abuse by humanity of the rest of God’s creation is the culprit for all our problems now including even the viciousness of today’s illnesses. Science is in fact having a hard time keeping up with the kind of sickness that is afflicting humans. This is proved by the fact that there are illnesses now that still had to be given appropriate cure by science. Why is this so? This is so because life’s support system which is the rest of God’s creation had been abused in wild abandon by humans to satisfy the greed of the few. Take for example the balding of the forest cover. Where in

the world can humans now source their oxygen with the trees gone? Aside from the dwindling supply of oxygen that trees could only give because of its wanton felling by heartless monsters known as loggers, small time or big time, the other life supporting mechanisms that trees are providing are likewise cut-off. And because of this, even the country’s weather forecasters are now having a hard time forecasting when summer starts and for how long and when the rainy season will start and for how long will it last also. This inability to accurately forecast the weather and the seasons is pushing education officials to rethink of when is the appropriate time to start the school year. Everything nowadays has become unpredictable and this unpredictability includes our ability to live for how long in this created world. We really do not know what incurable illness will hit us. And if we are not hit by any illness, we also really do not know in what form death will come to us. Will it come in the form of a tragedy as a result of a natural calamity whose accompanying disaster was never imagined? No one really knows. A good portion of the populace have died without them even entertaining the thought that death is about to knock at their door. This was what exactly happened to the thousands in Cagayan de Oro who perished because of the floods that typhoon Sendong brought. Did anyone in the city imagine how ferocious the floods that Sendong will bring? Everyone knew that a typhoon locally codenamed as Sendong will hit the city. But no one was able to forecast the water that such typhoon will bring hence the thousands who died because of the floods that washed out homes and its sleeping occupants. These tragedies would have been mitigated and not aggravated if humanity’s relationship with the rest of God’s creation had remained good. That particular relationship is broken because humanity’s relationship with each other and with their Creator is likewise broken. The decision to fix that broken relationship is ours and ours alone to make. Should we fix it or let it remain broken and cause immeasurable suffering and misery on ourselves? Pick your choice. •• (Reactions at jelbacon@ yahoo.com or at jelbaconii@ gmail.com. Read me also at www.raconteurme.blogspot. com)

Mindanao is currently experiencing a 300-megawatt deficit in its power supply, according to Brian Diosma of the Mindanao Power Monitoring Committee (MPMC). Diosma said Pulangi hydro
plant, which normally generates around 265 MW, is only producing 60 MW as of Tuesday afternoon. Elsewhere in Mindanao, Diosma said 12-hour rotational brownouts were imposed in parts of North Cotabato especially in the towns of Midsayap, Pikit and Aleosan. Davao and General Santos cities are experiencing six-hour daily brownouts, according to data from MPMC. Diosma said only the province of Agusan del Sur which bought a modular generating set is experiencing shorter brownouts. He said Bayugan city and other towns in Agusan del Sur are only experiencing two hours of brownouts every day. “The entry of STEAG on Thursday will be the only welcome news. The power situation really needs the extra source of electricity,” Paguio said. Steag State Power Inc. (SPI), which operates a 210-MW coal plant in Villanueva, Misamis Oriental, announced that its Unit 1 power generator will start supplying 105 MW to the Mindanao grid on Thursday. Jerome Soldevilla , SPI communications officer said the second unit of power generator which is also capable of supplying another 105 MW, will resume operations on June 1. Both generators of Steag were damaged and conked out during a Mindanao-wide fault last Feb. 27. Soldevilla said their entry on Thursday will add 10 percent to the supply of electricity in Mindanao. “We hope our entry can decrease the brownouts by two hours,” he said. Paguio said Cagayan de Oro needs 140 MW a day but presently the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines and NPC only supply around 29 MW. He said CEPALCO has other power sources like their 42MW Minergy plant and are still looking for other sources. He said they are also keeping an eye on an impending El Nino or dry spell as announced by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration. Diosma said they have already requested the Department of Argiculture to conduct cloud seeding operations over Lake Lanao and Pulangi River. President Aquino created the MPMC through Executive Order 81 on August 2, 2012 to facilitate all initiatives aimed at improving the energy supply in the Mindanao. Supervised by the Mindanao Development Authority, the other members of the MPMC are the Department of Energy, the Energy Regulatory Commission, National Electrification Administration, NPC and the Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corp.

masuko,” Dy said as suspects in cable theft and buying have been arrested. “We have to protect the interests of our subscribers who have been adversely affected by the cutting of cable wires by thieves,” he said. Dy said that even during the previous administration the manager of the Misortel had received threats. “I appeal to these people not to resort to this,” he added. Meanwhile, Dy said the company is on a major rehabilitation project to replace old copper wires with fiber optic wires. He said the cable thieves target copper wires because these can be sold as junk. But with the fiber optics “dili kawatonon kay plastic,” he added. He said Misortel has submitted its annual budget to the local finance committee at the provincial capitol. “Governor Yevgeny Vincente “ Bambi” Emano supports our rehabilitation project,” Dy said as he assured subscribers that Misortel would be competitive against other telephone companies. He said when Misortel goes fully digital it would be to the benefit of all subscribers in the province and Cagayan de Oro City. Dy added that they have bought 300 new units of telephone sets and 200 units of routers that are wifi-ready. One of the expansion areas they are looking into is Alubijid in western Misamis Oriental.

Truth Special Gospel of the day: Mark12:2834(May7, 2014-Wednesday)Mark 12:28-34-And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments [is], Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shall love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this [is] the first commandment. And the second [is] like, [namely] this, Thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the “truth,” for there is one God; and there is none other but he: And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love [his] neighbor as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices. And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. Take note, that “we are born to do good” only. Ephesians 2:10-for we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto “good works,” which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Isaiah 43:7-[Even] every one that is called by my name: for I have created him “for my glory,” I have formed him; yea, I have made him. Do you love our Almighty God? It is not “enough” if this is not shown to our neighbors. 1 John 4:21-And this commandment have we from him, that he who loves God love his brother also. Therefore, we must “do good things to the people around us,” in order our love to God will become “perfect and concrete.” What have you done to your neighbors?
