Miriam seeks Luy list of pork 200 SENATOR Miriam Defensor Santiago, member of the Senate blue ribbon committee, sent a letter to committee chair Teofisto Guingona III, recommending that the committee should hold a public hearing to request whistleblower Benhur Luy to testify on his own list, said to include 200 people, who allegedly received kickbacks from Janet Napoles, alleged mastermind of the P10 billion pork barrel scam. Santiago said that only the Luy list would be “definitive and substantiated,” as compared to what she called “spurious documents inadmissible in evidence” claimed by Napoles, Panfilo Lacson, and Sandra Cam. “Last Monday (May 12), President Aquino was reported as saying in Naypyitaw, Burma, that he has been shown two lists, both from Napoles, and another list from Lacson. The President reportedly said that each list refers to the other. The President reportedly expressed the suspicion that certain quarters are ‘trying to crowd the issue. This supports my humble claim for the Luy list,” she said. Luy’s parents allegedly went to a national newspaper (Inquirer) last year See seeks, page 11

opening statement during a public hearing investigating a new strain of coconut scale insect and coconut leaf beetle which has been infesting coconut trees in Region IV-A (Calabarzon). Citing the important role of scientists in improving the country’s agricultural productivity, Villar challenged those in the agricultural industry to come up with a solution to the worsening infestation of scale insects, which, according to the Philippine Coconut Authority, has already wiped out 54,000 coconut trees in Batangas and Laguna and is creeping towards the coconut plantations in Quezon Province.

Lawmaker wants probe on sale of power barges By Froilan Gallardo of MindaNews

CAGAYAN de Oro City––The militant party list Bayan Muna has called for a thorough investigation on the alleged anomalous sale of two government power barges in 2010 to Therma Marine, Inc., a subsidiary of Aboitiz Power Corporation. Bayan Muna partylist Rep. Carlos Isagani Zarate said the transaction done by public bidding led to a “huge financial loss” for the stateowned National Power Corporation (Napocor). But Zarate stressed that consumers in Mindanao ultimately became “the biggest loser” because the 200 megawatts of electricity that the barges could produce were no longer avail-

able to the Mindanao grid. “Aboitiz used the power from the barges to sell electricity directly to the electric cooperatives whereas before, government was selling it at cheaper rates,” he said. Bayan’s accusation came as Mindanao cities reel from six to 10-hour daily brownouts as supply from the Agus and Pulangi hydroelectric power plants, the island’s major source of electricity, dwindled with Lake Lanao and Pulangui’s waters already at critical levels. As of 6 a.m. Sunday, May 11, Mindanao’s power situation outlook was 938 MW system capacity for a system demand of 1,132MW or a deficit of 194.

Rape suspect nabbed By SONNY SUDARIA Mindanao Daily News-Armm

ILIGAN City––Armed with an arrest warrant, a team of policemen belonging to the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) for Iligan City and Lanao del Norte arrested a 27-yearold man in purok 10 in Barangay Elena recently. Team leader Chief Insp. Napolcom C. Carpio, also the head of CIDG-Iligan and Lanao Norte, said Jason Cañete Canoy is now languishing in jail after he was arrested on May 1 on alleged rape charges. Regional Trial Court (RTC) Presiding Judge Ma-

de Oro reached 7.5 hours, the deficit was 389MW. By May 8 it went down to 354 MW, on May 9 it was 277 and by May 10 was at 208. Since Unit 2 turbine of STEAG State Power’s coal-fired power plant went online evening of May 7, and the Western Mindanao diesel power plant’s 100-MW which underwent maintenance also went online, rotating brownouts have become shorter – an hour in Cagyaan de Oro and none in Davao City since May 9.

ERC to discuss key issues on power industry today By Mike Baños Editor-at-large

THE Energy Regulatory Commission is bringing government closer to the people in a series of focus group discussions to discuss two key issues which affect the power industry on May 13-14, 2014 at the Grand Caprice Restaurant and Convention Center in Cagayan de Oro City. “The Commission is currently undertaking a review of the Performance Based Regulation (PBR) and Draft PSA Rules (Rules Governing the Execution, Review and Evaluation of Power Supply Agreement Entered Into by Distribution Utilities for the Supply of Electricity to their Captive Market),” said Atty. Francis Saturnino C. Juan, ERC Executive Director, in a letter to Konsumanteng Kagay-anon, Inc. (KKI) dated 07 May 2014. “Among the major issues identified by the stakeholders

are the provisions on Competitive Selection Process (CSP), Benchmark Rate and Requirements for Joint Filing of the Application (for Draft PSA Rules) and the Regulatory Asset Base (RAB), Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC), and the Building Blocks in arriving at the Annual Requirements (ARR) for the PBR.” Atty. Juan said. To solicit the views of stakeholders on these topics in a more focused manner, the ERC executive said the Commission has scheduled Focus Group Discussions (FDGs) for Mindanao Stakeholders on May 13 & 14 (Tuesday/Wednesday) at the following times: 9:3012:00nn - Focused Group Discussions on Draft PSA Rules on the ff topics: 1. Competitive Selection Process; 2. PSA Templates; and 3. Generation Company Participation; and from 2:004:00PM, Focused Group Discussions on Performance

Based Regulation (PBR) on the ff topics: 1. Regulatory Asset Base; 2. OPEX Building Blocks and Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) and 3. Other Reset Issues. To facilitate a focused discussion on the topics, the

ERC has provided an Annex to the Draft PSA Rules and Guide Questions on the FDG for PBR Implementation for the 3 topics listed above and an “ISSUES PAPER” on the implementation of PBR for Privately Owned Electricity

Distribution Utilities under the Rules for Setting Distribution Wheeling Rates (RDWR) dated October 2013. The KKI is encouraging consumer groups and local government units to join the FDGs to get a better

grasp of the issues affecting rate setting and regulations as well as contribute their opinions and knowledge to the topics to be discussed which affect all electricity users in Mindanao and the entire country.

My graduate school experience B

eing one of the ten finalists in the Search for the Most Outstanding Elementary School Teacher in the Division of Bukidnon during the School Year 2007-2008, I was fortunate to grip of the BSU-DepED Graduate Scholarship Grant for the School Year 2009-2010. I felt blessed being granted with such scholarship. My interest in pursuing graduate studies was intensified for a period of one school year at Bukidnon State University, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon. Graduate school was not a new environment for me since I have taken MA units prior to my schooling as a scholar. But still, I faced many challenges as I adjust to the new learning pedagogy in which I assume the role of a student, again. The pressures were in my shoulders for I was a

Junito C. Comeros, T-III, Macabalan Elementary School

“scholar” then. I have had hesitations at first. What if I will not be able to make it through? What if I cannot do what are expected of me to do? What if I cannot follow the things stipulated in our scholarship contract? Those were the things that cropped up in my mind. But then, with the guidance of our Almighty Father, I am proud to claim that I’ve made it! In the graduate school, I learned and experienced the rudiments of research. The cornerstone of one’s experience in the graduate school is research. Almost, if not all, of the graduate students have laptops or notebooks or personal computers. These new equipments are very vital since each of the subjects require intensive readings on the different topics or issues. Aside from that, it has been proven that such

technological materials help facilitate a lot in writing one’s thesis paper. And I have seen and felt how each of the graduate students in that school employed the culture of research that the graduate school had. Graduate school education is more than just research. Part of the graduate school experience is interacting with people from various places and of different orientation. Since the grantees were coming from the different regions in Mindanao (Region IX, X, XI, XII, CARAGA and ARMM), learning from people with various backgrounds was not an impossibility. And my professors? I have great admiration and respect for them and I see them as great models. They have helped me enhance my knowledge and skills in teaching and have made me

feel worthy as a graduate student. They have aided me in earning my graduate degree. Though I also have had not-so-good experiences in the graduate school, I did not take those happenings as horrifying ones. I considered them as learning experiences. As what others have described, they were part of the package. My one year stay at BSU has been fascinating. It has been a year worth remembering for. My idea about research has widened. Although I have experienced some tough times, I believed that I have really benefited a lot from studying in the graduate school. And I am very thankful to all persons who have helped me finished my study: to God, my family, colleagues, friends, classmates, and the special persons in my life.

Police exec, driver gunned down in Agusan Sur road rage By CHRIS V. PANGANIBAN Regional Editor-Caraga

SAN Francisco, Agusan del Sur––A police official and his driver were gunned down due to a road rage shooting that was sparked by a traffic altercation between the victims and the armed suspect along the national highway on Sunday evening. The victims, Police Se-

nior Inspector Abraham Mangelen, deputy chief of Provincial Public Safety Company in Agusan del Norte and his driver Joel Timbal,35, died on the spot when they were peppered with bullets from the Caliber 40 Glock pistol by the suspect Rezly Chua, a member of a gun club in neighboring Rosario town. There were different ver-

sions of the incident, but initial police investigation said Mangelen alighted from his Honda SUV to stop the suspect from his unruly behavior while driving his motorcycle that he kept on overtaking them. The brief exchange of heated words proved to be bloody as the Chua took no time to shoot See RAGE, page 11

Army discovers human skeleton in Bukidnon

SOUTH POBLACION, MARAMAG, Bukidnon - The army’s combat troops discovered a human skeleton in an abandoned camp of the New People’s Army (NPA) in Bukidnon on Tuesday, May 6, morning. Lt. Col. Jose Leonard Gille, spokesperson of the army’s 4th Infantry Division said the patrolling military led by Cpt. Jojo L. Mascarinas of the 23rd Infantry “Masigasig” Battalion (23IB) discovered the human skeleton in an abandoned NPA campground at the foot of Mt. Kitanglad in the farming sub-village of Lirongan, Talakag, Bukidnon. After a thorough search in the area, the troops found a human skeleton wearing rain boots (botas) with civilian headgear, basketball jersey and empty shells of caliber 5.56mm M16 rifle next to the skeleton, Gille said. “The unidentified human skeleton was believed to be a member of Guerilla Front Committee 68 of the North Central Mindanao Regional Committee who was

part of the group encountered by the 8IB troops in Basak, Lantapan, Bukidnon last March 2014,” he said. Lt. Col. Lynart D. Castisimo, Commanding Officer of the 23IB said the communist rebels must have killed their wounded comrade who was a burden as they fled at the height of the military pursuit operations. He said this is a clear manifestation that the New People’s Army has no concern or respect with their fallen comrades. “The troops brought the human skeleton and his other belongings to the Philippine National Police (PNP) in Miarayon, Talakag, Bukidnon and will be turned-over to PNP's Scence-of-the-crime operatives (SOCO) for examination and proper disposition,” Castisimo said. Meanwhile, Gille said a decent burial will be afforded to the discovered skeletal remains after possible identification and all other protocols done. (JLBG-4ID, PA/ RLRB, PIA 10 Bukidnon)

Negotiation and dialogue – important in resolving the problem of vendors at Pala-o Market

ILIGAN CITY - Councilor Frederick W. Siao believes the importance of negotiation and dialogue in resolving the problem on the request of vendors at Bagsakan 1 and 2 at the Pala-o Market this city. 1aThis is the reason that Siao, who is chairman of the Committee on Trade, Commerce and Industry of the Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP) agreed to three resolutions that will resolve the problem. In the recent regular session of the SP, one of the resolutions is to return to Mayor Celso G. Regencia the letter that he endorsed to the city council to request an extension of the members of UNIVA Association Inc. and PAPIVA to stay in the place to sell until May 15, 2014. The contract of the city and the owner of the property expired in April 30

this year. The letter of the request of the mayor was returned to study first the long term solution of the problem. The city council also approved the request to Mayor Regencia to issue a ‘status quo order’ so that the vendors will continue their business at the place until a concrete solution to the problem is reached. The third solution is to re-negotiate and for authorities of the Economic Enterprise Development and Management Office (EEDMO) and the Mayor as chairman of the Public Market Advisory Council (PMAC) and the owner of the property. The city council said that what will come out of the dialogue, the group should be informed to the vendors so that they will be informed so the group can come up with a decision.

The city council learned from EEDMO that the owner of the property at Pala-o Market has a new proposal asking for a rental increase but up to the writing of this news, the SP has not receive a copy of the proposal. The UNIVA and the PAFIVA had written a letter to the SP informing that they are ready to pay from P5 to P25 as they know that the local government is losing. The purpose of the group is that they do not want to lose their position of their establishment in the place. Earlier, the people tasked by the mayor as in-charge to transfer the vendors from Pala-o Market Bagsakan 1 and 2 to the Central Market because the city is losing as revenues earned could not justify rental of the property.*(Armien Alorro/ English translations by Virgilio C.

Desperation over vanishing water in RP LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… The Lord will strike you with… scorching heat and drought… which will plague you until you perish. The sky over your head will be bronze, the ground beneath you iron. The Lord will turn the rain of your country into dust and powder; it will come down from the skies until you are destroyed…” (Deuteronomy 28:22-24, the Holy Bible). -oooDESPERATION OVER VANISHING WATER IN RP: There is no mistaking the desperation in the warnings being issued by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and by PAGASA, or the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration: water in Angat and La Mesa dams (the source of Metro Manila’s drinking water) is vanishing in the face of continuing hot weather. There is no remedy, the two agencies warn all of us, even if the Metropolitan Waterworks Sewerage System (MWSS) and its concessionaires servicing Metro Manila and neighboring provinces, Maynilad and

Kakampi mo ang batas Atty. Batas Mauricio Manila Water, try to soften the impact of vanishing water by full-page (and therefore expensive) advertisements last May 12, 2014 on how to conserve water. Indeed, the problem of water lack brought about by no rains and extremely and scorchingly hot weather, compounded by the onset of the El Nino phenomenon in just a few days, cannot be licked, and will be with us no longer on a yearly basis but during the entire year nowadays, raring to cause death and destruction never before seen in the Philippines. -oooWHAT CAN BE DONE TO AVERT WATER LACK? So, again, the question remains: what can Filipinos do in the face of this unstoppable problem of vanishing water, especially considering the clear inability of

their government---and the governments of many other countries as well---to come up with alternative solutions? The good news is that, there is something that Filipinos can do, and it is not going to cost them the billions of pesos in government funds that have been, and still are being, thrown away by our officials in search of the elusive remedy against water lack. All that we need to realize is that, water lack due to extremely hot temperatures arising from global warming and climate change, represents a curse from God. Many will disagree with me on this point, especially those who pretend to be knowledgeable in the Bible and on matters of spirituality, and say that the curse of global warming and climate change---and the other

curses from God---referred to in Deuteronomy 28 of the Bible were intended only for the Israelites of the Biblical times. But that is a myopic and grossly erroneous reading of the Bible. -oooLACK OF RAIN, HOT WEATHER, GOD’S CURSES: My point is that the Book of Curses from God, which lists down 52 or 53 curses in all in its Deuteronomy 28:15-68, applies to all people of all times, more particularly in our time, in the here and now, today. After all, the Book of Curses is saying that the curses which God will rain down from the heavens will come when a people no longer listen to Him and no longer obey His commands. And, indeed, if we read the Book of Curses carefully enough, we will not fail to see, unless we are so dense or so blind or hypocritical, that the about 50 or so of the curses mentioned therein are already happening even in our own country, during the present times. Except for the curse of parents eating the flesh of their own children, all of God’s curses See water, page 11

Going through hot water

THINK a minute. “A tea bag isn’t worth much until it’s been through some hot water.” There’s a saying in boxing: “Everybody’s got a plan—until they’ve been hit!” Sooner or later, life is going to hit and knock you down. Whether you get back up or not is your choice. Almost all people’s successes are built on their former failures. A very successful man was asked if he had ever failed. He answered: “Only in life.” The fact is, even after we’ve been knocked down we can still use our past mistakes and failures to build a bridge to our success. You know that you’re the

Think A Minute Jhan Tiafau Hurst only one who can kill your dream by quitting. Remember that just falling in the water is not what drowns you; it’s staying down there that does. Just like kites fly high because the wind pushes against them, so problems that oppose you can actually help you succeed, if you choose to believe and use them that way.

There was a man who was the only survivor from a shipwreck. He drifted to an uninhabited island where he built a hut for his shelter. One evening after he returned from searching for food, he found his little hut on fire. Early the next morning he awoke to find a ship that had come in during the night.

When the captain came on shore he told the man: “We saw your smoke signal so we came to rescue you.” Everything this man owned and valued in his hut had to be destroyed before he could be saved. Sometimes our Maker even uses our pain to get our attention, so we can learn our most important lessons for living well and wisely. So why not ask Jesus Christ to take charge and lead you through the hot water you’re in now? He’s the only one who can help you change your pain and problems into peace and prosperity for you and your family. The choice is yours. Just Think a Minute.

DAR conducts two-day seminar-workshop on BAC By Florence A. Ramos

CAGAYAN de Oro––The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) conducted a seminar cum workshop on the Government Procurement Reform Act (R.A. 9184) for its provincial bids and awards committees (BAC) nationwide on April 21-25. The purpose of the seminar workshop was to enable the participants to have a deeper understanding and knowledge on R.A. 9184 or the Government Procurement Reform Act. “It is important for us to have thorough knowledge on this because ignorance of the law excuses no one. When we commit a mistake, we can’t just say ‘I’m sorry; I have no knowledge about it,’” explained assistant regional director of DAR Region 4B Prescilla Ong who was one of the resource persons. On the second day of the seminar, DAR legal consultant Atty. Art Tantuan discussed the legal points of R.A. 9184. “Even though there is only one law, the R.A. 9184 is quite technical because the implementing rules and regulations are so many,” said Atty. Tantuan. He also said there are

Since most of the opinions are very instructive on how to address specific issues in the course of procurement, he encouraged the BAC members to regularly check the

They were then asked to do a short role play of an actual bidding. The Visayas group was assigned to play the part on the prepara-

tion of bidding documents, while the Mindanao group was tasked to play the bidding procedures. DAR-Region 10 hosted the Visayas and Mindanao participants in one of the hotels in Cagayan de Oro.

Farmers from Sumilao town receive indemnity from DAR-PCIC program By Remegio Danuco

Malaybalay City–– Twenty-seven farmers from Sumilao, Bukidnon receive their indemnity claims from the Philippine Crop Insurance Corporation (PCIC) on April 28, 2014 at the DAR Municipal Office. These farmers had planted corn during the last cropping season in 2013 when tropical depression Agaton struck Mindanao in January this year. The continuous rains that lasted for more than two weeks flooded their farms and destroyed their crops. Fortunately, a tie-up program between DAR and PCIC was forged earlier in 2013, the Agrarian Reform Beneficiary Agricultural Insurance Program (ARB AIP), which was designed to indemnify the farmers in case of damage to rice, corn, high value crops, farm animals, and even the life of the farmer, caused by calamities or any fortuitous event that may occur. Agrarian reform beneficiaries nationwide were encouraged to enroll in the program which was fully subsidized by DAR.

New hydro power plants operating in summer season

S

TA. CRUZ, Davao del Sur – Hedcor’s newest hydropower facilities, Tudaya 1 and 2 run-of-river hydropower plants in Davao del Sur entered commercial operation stage at the height of summer season.

After completing its testing and commissioning phase ensuring its reliability last March, the two hydropower projects began generating clean and renewable energy to the region. To date, the two hydropower facilities generated about seven million kilowatt-hours with an

average daily generation of 110,000 kWhs. Since run-of-river hydropower scheme relies on the natural flow of the harnessed rivers, this generation is expected to rise as the rainy season begins to engulf the region. The construction of the hydropower facilities run 18 months starting late 2012.

Tudaya Hydro 1 plant operates at 6.6 MW while Tudaya Hydro 2 runs with a total capacity of 7MW. Together, the plants can produce clean and renewable energy at 14 MW with an annual generation of 76.5 million kWh. The projects are part of the expansion of the 42.5 MW Sibulan hydropower plant. Hedcor supplies a total of 61 MW to the Mindanao Grid from its nine run-of-river plants in Davao City and Davao del Sur. The Tudaya hydros will escalate the generation by

22%. Tudaya Hydro 1 plant will deliver power to Davao Light and Power Company (DLPC) which serves about 264 barangays. Me anw hi le, Tudaya Hydro 2 plant will supply Davao del Sur Electric Cooperative (DASURECO). During the construction, about 400 manpower were outsourced locally giving employment opportunities to both skilled and professional workers. This is one of the company’s corporate social responsibility programs specifically in livelihood.

The plants also attained over two million safe manhours without disabling accidents during its construction phase as validated by the Department of Labor and Employment Region IX. Also, earlier this year the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) awards Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) to Tudaya 1 and 2 run-ofriver hydropower plants for producing carbon neutral electricity. Through balancing CO2 emission reduction, energy

security, environmental protection, social development, and inclusive growth. As the leading force in run-of-river hydropower development in the country, Hedcor proactively seeks better solutions towards a better future. Currently, Hedcor is also working to complete the pertinent requirements for the 69 MW Manolo Fortich Hydropower Project in Bukidnon and for the completion of the ongoing construction of 14 MW Sabangan Hydropower Project in Mt Province.

SSS helps Davao farmers bounce back from Typhoon Pablo through AlkanSSSya Program CATEEL, Davao Oriental - Over 160 farmers in this town, five hours away from the provincial capital of Mati, are the newest participants of the Social Security System (SSS) AlkanSSSya Program as part of ongoing initiatives to help residents recover from Typhoon Pablo that hit Mindanao in 2012. Emmanuel Palma, SSS Assistant Vice President for Southern Mindanao Division, said 167 out of the 244 farmer-members of the Community Forestry Project-Taytayan MultiPurpose Cooperative (CFPTMPC) comprised the firstever batch of AlkanSSSya participants in the eastern coast of Davao Oriental. “The CFP-TMPC members are farmer-beneficiaries of the cash-for-work program supported by the International Labor Organization (ILO) after the onslaught of Typhoon

Pablo two years ago. While re-establishing the farmers’ source of livelihood is important in helping them bounce back from the disaster, ensuring their social protection through the SSS is also a top priority for their full recovery,” Palma said. Typhoon Pablo rampaged through southern Philippines in December 2012, triggering floods and landslides that flattened the hardest-hit areas of Davao Oriental and Compostela Valley and depriving residents of their homes and livelihood. The SSS, through its Mati branch headed by Officer-in-Charge Branch Head Erec Rana, teamed up with the ILO and CFPTMPC for the landmark AlkanSSSya launch in Cateel, which is seen to attract other beneficiary groups assisted by the ILO in nearby areas into join-

ing the SSS microsavings program. The AlkanSSSya launch served as highlight of the 5th CFP-TMPC anniversary celebration held at the Mantunao Eco Park in Taytayan, Cateel on May 5. Attendees included SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Emilio de Quiros, Jr., CFPTMPC Chairman Mahlon Pejana, CFP-TMPC General Manager Esther Albino and ILO Project Coordinator Jedel Ervin Tabamo. Also present were SSS Special Assistant to the PCEO Ma. Lourdes Mendoza, SSS S enior Vice President for Visayas and Mindanao Operations Eddie Jara, SSS Vice President

for Management Services and Planning May Ciriaco, AlkanSSSya Program Director Amalia Tolentino, SSS Branch Evaluation Services Department Head Gloria Cuisia and Enterprise Bank-Cateel Branch Head Marvin Barrios. Instead of coins, coupons specifying the amount saved and the control number will be stored in the AlkanSSSya unit, which is a large “piggy bank” with secured individual boxes for keeping members' savings. The cash will be kept by the cooperative’s treasurer and remitted to SSS via a collecting agent (Enterprise Bank) at the end of each month.

“The AlkanSSSya makes saving for monthly contributions affordable as well as convenient, since CFP-TMPC will handle the collection, monitoring and remittance of SSS payments on behalf of its members,” Palma explained. “CFP-TMPC will also offer a unique program called the ‘Saturday and Sunday work for Security’ or ‘SSS,’ wherein it will provide its members jobs during weekends.

their SSS savings, making the AlkanSSSya program more sustainable and viable,” he added. SSS will also offer mobile data capture services at the Cateel Municipal Hall this month to help locals apply for the Unified Multi-Purpose Identification System (UMID) card without having to travel 160 kilometers to the SSS Mati Branch. One-way trip to Mati costs more than P 200 and takes up to five hours by bus. (PNA)

Nature Boy: Remembering everyman’s friend Ernie

A

By MIKE BAÑOS

week ago, relatives and friends of the late Ernesto Fabella Pelaez, better known as Ernie to his legions of friends, fittingly gathered in Mapawa Nature Park in his memory. Speaking in behalf of The Plazans, media colleague Eddie Montalvan recalls how Ernie was fondly called “Migs” by the Plazans because it seems he was everybody’s “amigo”. As Manny Valdehuesa recounted in his eulogy, “I think of Ernie, first and foremost, as a friend, warm, unassuming, obliging—no airs, dili hambugero. He was as modest as a Pelaez can be, I think.” Indeed, such was my experience too with Ernie whom I first got to know when friends in Holcim invited me to interview him sometime in 2007 after his team became the Asia Pacific Silver Project Awardee for their project "Concrete Substrates for Accelerated Coral Restoration" in the inaugural cycle of the Holcim Awards for Sustainable Construction in 2005. THE CITATION FOR THE AWARD READS: “The success of this project lies in its innovative focus on the marine ecosystem. Of particular merit is the effort to regenerate an endangered environment, an environment upon which many small coastal communities depend for their livelihood and future development. Such effort yields not only a positive impact on the natural surroundings by providing an ecologically effective catalyst for coral growth, but also an ethically affirmative social impact by increasing the quantity and diversity of fish species for nearby fishing communities. This project convincingly demonstrates the value of simple, yet intelligent tools that are affordable, require little technical expertise, and can be easily replicated in different contexts. Also to be commended is the adaptability of the structures to the varied needs of local communities. The project signals sensitivity to economic issues by promoting a low-cost, incremental infrastructure rather than costly large-scale investments. This entry displays ingenuity in tackling a highly complex issue while offering a modest, but aesthetically refined design solution to the challenges at hand.” He had this dream about transplanting corals in concrete frames which would restore the country’s coral gardens to their former glory and stop global warming through carbon sequestration. I guess his work with Mapawa Nature Park and STEAG State Power Inc.’s carbon sequestration projects inspired him with a similar vision to restore the country’s forests through its coral gardens. With 17,500 kilometers of coastline, the potential to transform the Philippines' coral reefs into "rainforests of the sea" as a significant miti-

gating factor against global warming is mind boggling. He never got tired of describing his vision to anyone who would listen. “Compared to forest carbon sinks, carbon sequestration in artificial reefs have a geometric growth progression, are safe from fire and usual threats faced by land-based forests, with most threats addressable by human intervention, offer permanent/longer carbon sequestration, and are adaptable to sand dunes or barren stretches of seabed, and make it easy to restore degraded coral atolls/reefs.” “In contrast, trees can only multiply arithmetically and face environment threats many of which cannot be mitigated by human intervention, and have a relatively short-span carbon sequestration period before they are cut down for lumber or fuel and the decay or burning releases carbon back into the air.” Once adopted into the national integrated coastal management plan, Ernie envisioned his project would reduce human induced climate change by absorbing greenhouse gases, reduce immediate threats of declining water quality brought by land-use changes and pollution, and mass exploitation of fish biomass. Yes, it was easy to catch the bug from Ernie. And of course, once you caught it, you were friends for life. “Ernie's work in Duka Bay began when its corrals were wiped out in the 90s by a great flood,” recalls his younger brother Eduardo, better known to friends as Bobong. “Ernie envisioned the replanting of corals. He built simple concrete structures to which the corals could be attached. Today the corals are thriving and Duka Bay is recognized globally as a successful coral rehabilitation project. In fact, it won a global award from Holcim.” “Much of what Ernie did was very much a part of our concerns,” mused Manny V. in his eulogy. “His ideas, his initiatives, his dreams resembled our own. But he was different because he acted on them, so it is fitting that we remember and commemorate his life with us.” “He was a true environmentalist. He pioneered in coral regeneration at Duka Bay, established the carbon sink forestation in Mapawa, used sound ranching practices, took part in the Cagayan de Oro River Basin Management Council, and staunchly supported the Gising Barangay Movement as a concerned citizen,” he added. “Only last year, he was all over the place, planning arrangements with the Asian Institute of Management (AIM) to help develop Mapawa and environs into a regional hub for training and developing ecotourism professionals.” “Mapawa was largely Ernie's vision,” Bobong recalls. “Upon Ernie's return from Washington DC where he served as assistant to our

Ernie’s pic at Mapawa father, then the Philippine ambassador to the US, the family's pasture lease agreement on Mapawa was about to expire. This was all grazing land then. No trees, no forest cover. But Ernie envisioned it as an industrial tree forest, a source of timber and At the same time a nature haven that would promote the environment.” “A plan was hatched to plant hectares of trees every year for 10 years. And on the strength of that vision our lease agreement was renewed. Today, over 1,000 hectares of trees have been

planted. Our primary forest of 30 hectares has grown to 300 hectares. In turn, the new forests have become a home to over a hundred bird species and has become a Trekkers paradise. Mapawa is now also a source of water for Cagayan de Oro and the key component of STEAG's carbon credit program.” “Ernie never lacked for ideas and until his first hydrocephalus attack six months ago continued to have grand projects. Among his final wishes were to be laid to rest by the Dao tree, Cagayan de Oro’s heritage

tree.” “But typical in his life, this vision was tempered by his siblings who pointed out that this would not be allowed by the Catholic Church and that it would be an inconvenience for some of his loved ones to visit him there. He has been laid to rest in St James Church in Ayala Alabang together with our father and two other siblings. His memory however will be perpetuated in Mapawa, which will always be associated with him.” “Somewhere up there he must be making an account

to his father—whom he loved dearly and regretted not having been dedicated enough in early days,” Manny V. recalls. “In his honor, I suggest to the family that some part of nature in this God-given ecology should be named after him.” “Much of what Ernie did was for his children,” Bobong noted. “Monte and Nicole, who grew up with Thailee and Ernie in Manila and Washington DC, and his seven year old Clarissa, whose mother is Dinna, Ernie's partner and primary caregiver for the last six months.”

The most telling of all these curses, which is the curse of global warming and climate change that is found in Deuteronomy 28:15, 2224, is certainly pounding on us now. What then can Filipinos do to avert the full impact of this curse? We must listen to God’s Word again by reading the Bible, and sincerely obey His commands, right away. -oooREMINDERS: Please tune in: “Tambalang Batas at Somintac sa DZEC”, at 1062 kHz on the AM band, Mondays to Fridays, at 6 a.m.; “Kakampi Mo Ang Batas sa Radyo Trabungko FM”, at 103.7 mHz in Don Carlos, Bukidnon, Mondays to Fridays, at 7 a.m.; and “Kakampi Mo Ang Batas sa DYKA” at 801 kHz on the AM band (Panay Island), Mondays to Fridays, at 10 a.m.

Mangelen first, then Timbal followed in split seconds, hitting both with fatal precision as if he was shooting at a firing range. Superintendent Rodelio Roqueta, local police chief, said based on the statements of the witnesses, including the women passengers of the car, Mangelen was irked by Chua’s trying to always overtake them, but still kept his cool to introduce himself as a police official while asking for the suspect’s driver’s license. On the other hand, a report from Virgin Radio 95.3 FM said Mangelen was wielding his gun when he accosted Chua to get his driver’s license that the suspect was left with no choice than to fire at the victims out of self-defense. Roqueta said the local police is bent on filing a double murder charges against Chua and it is up to the suspect’s defense counsel to counter the charges to just plain homicide for self-defense. Accompanied by his cousin, Vice Mayor Julie Chua, the suspect turned himself in at the Rosario Municipal Police Office, which later turned him over for detention to the San Francisco Municipal Police Office.

backup file on his hard drive detailing each lawmaker and other public officials, and the amount of kickbacks they individually received. According to the newspaper that broke the story yesterday (May 12), the newspaper copied the files in the hard drive which contains the list of people who allegedly received money from Napoles, described as: “lawmakers, department heads, a former Supreme Court justice, popular media personalities, heads of government-owned and -controlled, corporations, government employees of various agencies, local government officials, lawyers, military officials, showbiz personalities, employees of the Senate and the House of Representatives, and private individuals.” It appears from the Luy records that public funds were stolen not only from the pork barrel allocations, but also from the Malampaya funds, Commission on Appointments, certain media blitz of government organizations, plus “budget insertions, allocations for hard project like farm-to-market-roads, appropriation funds for calamities, nationwide equipment enhancement programs, and department savings,” Santiago, a former multiawarded RTC judge, said that in addition to testimonial knowledge, the Luy list would be admissible in evidence as allowed by the Rules of Court. The former judge also said that the Luy list could be admitted as “commercial lists and the like, which are considered admissible,” as tending to prove the truth of any relevant matter. Santiago said that all other self-proclaimed lists from Napoles, Lacson, and Cam were likely fictional and polluted,” because they appear to be sourced from one or all of the three senators indicted by the Ombudsman for plunder. In an interview yesterday (May 12) with Radyo Inquirer, Santiago said that each of the three claimants with his or her own version of a list could be acting as attack dogs of the indicted senators. She said that under the Rules of Court, Napoles suffers from the disputable presumption that evidence wilfully suppressed would be adverse if produced. “Napoles refused to talk about the Luy list, because it would be adverse to Napoles herself,” Santiago said. source: senate.gov.ph

electric ooperatives. He said the sale of electricity is done through “bilateral sales agreement” between Aboitiz Power Corporation and the electric cooperatives. Aboitiz Power Corporation is the sole power distributor in Davao and Cotabato cities and sells electricity to cooperatives all over Mindanao. Contrary to allegations that Aboitiz is not utilizing the barges, Wilfredo said Therma Marine has been operating the two barges as baseload plants when Mindanao started experiencing a shortage in the supply of electricity last week. Wilfredo said transactions between Aboitiz and electric cooperatives were done directly and not through the Interim Mindanao Electricity Market or IMEM. The House Committee on Energy had earlier passed a resolution for the suspension of the IMEM after Mindanao leaders and electric cooperatives expressed their opposition to the measure during a public hearing in Cagayan de Oro on March 4. ‘Anomalous’ Jose Edgardo Uy, former legal counsel of the Cagayan Electric and Power Light Company (CEPALCO), who opposed the sale of the barges, echoed Bayan’s call for investigation. “What is anomalous is that the selling price was much lower from the valuation price done by Napocor on the two barges. Why was the sale price so low?” Uy asked. Uy, who now heads Cagayan de Oro’s Task Force Hapsay Dalan said the two barges– PB 117 moored in Nasipit, Agusan del Norte and PB 118 moored in Maco, Compostela Valley —were each capable of producing 100 megawatts and were bought by Nap in case of a shortage in hydro power. “The power crisis today could have been averted if the barges are still owned by the government or Napocor,” Uy said. Napocor bought the two power barges in the early 1990s following a power crisis that nearly crippled Mindanao businesses when a powerful El Nino dried up Lake Lanao and Pulangi River. The barges were supposed to fill the vacuum if the supply of hydro power become unstable. Following the huge financial losses incurred by Napocor, Congress passed the Electric Power Industry Reform Act of 2001 (EPIRA) or Republic Act 9136 mandating the privatization of the electric industry in the country. Only 30-M US dollars EPIRA also mandated the government through the Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corporation (PSALM) to sell all generating assets owned by Napocor including power barges 117 and 118. In its disclosure to the ERC and the Security Exchange Commission, Aboitiz said its subsidiary Therma Marine won the negotiated bid for the two barges at a bid price of US$16 million and US $14 million or for a total of US $30 million in 2009. That year, Mindanao had ample supply of electricity and there were no other bidders to oppose Therma Marine’s offer except for the opposition filed by CEPALCO and some Mindanao electric cooperatives.

Therma Marine paid US $16 million or P739,467,200 million for power barge 117 and US $14 million or P 651,233,800 million for the other barge, 118. The prevailing exchange rates in February and March 2010 were US $1- P46.2167 and US $1- P46.5167. The Aboitiz subsidiary took over the operations of PB 117 and 118 on Feb. 6 and March 1 , 2010 and renamed it as M1 and M2. The two barges are still moored in its original location in Barangay Sta. Ana, Nasipit town in Agusan del Norte and in Maco, Compostela Valley province. P30-M for a value of P90-M Uy questioned why the final sale price fell to US $30 million when Napocor had valued the two barges at US $90 million. “There was a huge difference in the valued price and the actual sale,” Uy said. Zarate said they are looking into reports that in the sale of some government assets by PSALM, only 25% was paid while the balance is to be paid in 25 years. He said they want to check if this scheme was used in the sale of the power barges to Therma Marine. Zarate said the government assets were sold supposedly to pay the losses of Napocor. To the detriment of Mindanao consumers, Zarate said the two barges are being used sparingly by Aboitiz and not as baseload power producers as government had intended them to be. Zarate blamed EPIRA for pushing government to privatize the power sector and prevent government funds derived from Malampaya from financing big ticket power plants. “EPIRA is the real problem” “The real problem is the EPIRA itself and the orgy of privatization of the power sector that it spawned in more than a decade. Contrary to the promised adequate supply and cheaper electricity, what we have now is one of the highest power rates in the world,” Zarate said. “Under EPIRA, the island’s major government assets were privatized and sold, some for a song, to a few players,” he added. Zarate said a major power plant, the 96 MW Mt. Apo geothermal plant was also sold to the Lopez-controlled Energy Development Corporation. He said government has not invested enough money to rehabilitate Agus And Pulangi plants

and left them deteriorating and operating below its rated capacity. Use Malampaya funds “The government has not invested money because EPIRA mandates them to sell the Agus and Pulangi plants,” Rep. Rufus Rodriguez (2nd district, Cagayan de Oro) said. Rodriguez said he opposed the sale of the Agus and Pulangi hydro plants because it would be unwise to put business in charge of the power generating sector. He said he has sponsored a bill allowing the use of the Malampaya funds to finance the rehabilitation of Agus and Pulangi plants. He said his bill would also allow the government to finance and develop alternative energy sources like biomass, hydro, geothermal, solar and wind. “Definitely no coal or diesel. We have to look for cleaner energy sources, “ Rodriguez said. Another meeting Rodriguez and the House committee on energy will meet with Energy Secretary Carlos Jericho Petilla in Metro Manila on Wednesday to find a solution to end the Mindanao power crisis. Petilla met Mindanao congressional leaders last Wednesday in Quezon City but “did not offer any solution” to the power crisis crippling the island. Rep. Rodriguez said Petilla, who came with top officials of Napocor and PSALM, instead pushed for the adoption of IMEM as the solution to end the power crisis. “Petilla did not offer any solution. He was asking us to give IMEM another chance,” said Rodriguez. “Petilla did not go there to offer a solution. Instead he pushed for the IMEM and for the co-ops to buy the expensive modular generating sets,” Zarate said.

Great S pecial G ospel of the day : M a teo15:29-37 Matthew 15:29-37-And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there. And great multitudes came unto him, having with them [those that were] lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus’ feet; and he healed them: Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel. Then Jesus called his disciples [unto him], and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way. And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude? And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes. And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake [them], and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude: This gospel reminds us the “double concerns” of Jesus to human beings since He provided them both, spiritual and material foods. In Ephesians 6:8-knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether [he be] bond or free. Therefore, the blessings that they received were the results of their great desire to see Jesus and even for making Jesus as their “priority” of their lives. In Matthew 6:33-but seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Are you seeking God?
