Envi groups back Sec. Lopez on closure of mining companies By Antonio L. Colina IV, Mindanews

DAVAO CITY -- Green advocates here praised Environment secretary Regina Lopez for the closure of 23 mining operations and the cancellation of 75 existing mineral production sharing agreements (MPSAs) within the watershed areas, a move described as “long overdue action” since the environment has long been degraded by “unregulated mining activities.” Chinkie T. Pelino-Golle. acting executive director of the Interface Development Interventions (IDIS) said they commend the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) for its bold decision against mining companies whose unregulated mining activities caused the devastation of the environment. “It is a long overdue action since the environment has already been devastated by the unregulated mining activities. Local communities have long been suffering from the destructions and continue to suffer from poverty,” she said in an email.

She added that the mining companies have failed to deliver on their promise of development to the communities and even violated environmental and social justice, citing how the mining operations have destroyed the biodiversity. “Biodiversity, supposedly, will support the needs of the people to survive and will ensure a balanced environment. But with the mining operations, biodiversity is also gone and so are the benefits they give,” she said. She also called on DENR, local government units (LGUs), and mining-affected communities to work together to rehabilitate the mined areas. “Let us give DENR and this government, a chance, to uphold environmental and social justice,” she said. In a text message, Dr. Jean Lindo, an environmental activist from the Panalipdan Mindanao, said several anti-mining activists have been killed in their fight against operations of See Back, page A7

28 NPA rebels neutralized in eastern, southern Mindanao DAVAO CITY – The 10th Infantry (Agila) Division of the Philippine Army on Wednesday reported on the neutralization of 28 New People’s Army (NPA) rebels in eastern and southern Mindanao. Speaking before reporters during the regular AFP-PNP press conference at the Mandaya Hotel in Davao City, 10th ID chief information officer Captain Rhyan Batchar said military operations will continue in their areas of operation. The 28 NPA rebels were neutralized by the Army

since the intensified military operations commenced on February 1, Batchar added. Of the total number of rebels neutralized, 19 surrendered to different units of the Army; eight were captured; and one was killed. Government troops also recovered 12 high-powered firearms and 14 improvised explosive devices (IEDs) during the series of military encounters with the rebels in the provinces of Compostela Valley, Davao Oriental and Sarangani, Batchar said.

Businessmen urged to use Davao-GenSan-Bitung RoRo route DAVAO CITY – An Indonesian consular official urged the business sector to use the Davao-GenSan-Bitung RoRo (Roll on/roll-off ) route to bring significant economic development to Mindanao in the Philippines side and Bitung in Indonesia. Consul General Ber-

lian Napitupulu, Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia in Davao City said the connectivity is very timely as it will become operational when it will be formally launched on April 28, 2017. Speaking at Wednesday’s Habi at Kapi Forum in Abreeza Ayala Mall, Na-

pitupulu said now is the right time to implement the new Ro-Ro route since Mindanao is the priority of the Philippine government for development. The project was first conceptualized when President Rodrigo Duterte was the mayor of Davao City. “Of course, the President

will put emphasis on this project because he was also involved in the initiation of this project,” he said. There are plans of having Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte and Indonesia President Joko Widodo to lead the send-off of the maiden voyage but he said it See urged, page A7

they will construct will be an additional branch each in Davao City (Toril), and Cagayan de Oro. Toril; another in Cagayan de Oro; and one each in the cities of Zamboanga, Butuan and Tagum. Tiu could not say how much will be poured in for the new developments but he estimated that each mall normally costs around P2 billion. Mindanao’s first SM mall is SM City Davao, referred to by residents as “SM Ecoland.” It was inaugurated on November 17, 2001. Tiu said a rosy outlook has been projected for Mindanao after the election of President Rodrigo Duterte who has repeatedly encouraged businessmen to locate in the island.

He also pointed to the increased purchasing power of the Mindanawons as another factor behind the plan to put up more SM malls here. He said the firm saw a nine percent growth in 2016 in Mindanao, compared with the seven percent national growth target. According to Bloomberg. co, the SM Supermalls’ holding company, the SM Prime Holdings, Inc., “develops, operates, and maintains shopping center spaces for rent, amusement centers, or cinema theaters in the Philippines and China. The company operates through four segments: Mall, Residential, Commercial, and Hotels and Convention Centers.” Lynette Angala-Lopoz,

SM City Davao mall manager, said SM Development Corp. (SMDC), the property development arm of SM Prime, will also build a four eight-storey condominiums with carpark buildings in Ecoland, this city by middle of this year. Engr. Nick D. Santos, SM City Davao assistant mall manager, said they continue to do innovations for SM City, this being the first mall in Mindanao area and the 11th in the country. “We have brought in a lot of improvements for SM City Davao by bringing in more brands here,” he said. Lopoz said that they are hoping some 45 new tenants will open in this branch, including some global brands. (Antonio L. Colina IV/ MindaNews)

Aside from Manila, CEB also operates flights out of five other strate-

gically placed hubs in the Philippines: Cebu, Davao, Clark, Kalibo, and Iloilo.

Suspected HIV case found at free testing in S. Cotabato GENERAL SANTOS CITY -- Health personnel in South Cotabato are looking into a possible case of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection among residents who availed of a free Valentine’s Day testing. Focal person for the HIV/Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) program of the Integrated Provincial Health Office (IPHO), John Codilla, said Wednesday at least 42 residents submitted themselves to screening or testing for the disease during its “Love Month Testing Day”. “The team is looking into one case for further tests and confirmation,” he said in a statement. The official said the HIV/AIDS screening was facilitated by personnel of the IPHO’s HIV-AIDS Core Team Clinic (HACT). He said they used the HIV rapid test, which “detects antibodies” in blood or oral fluid samples.

Codilla said the test results were made available in just 15 minutes. A standard HIV screening or testing costs PHP1,000 in private hospitals but the IPHO has been offering it for free. Those who would test positive to the disease may seek immediate antiretroviral (ARV) drug treatment at the HACT, which is located at the IPHO/South Cotabato Provincial Hospital Building in Koronadal City. The HACT, which is accredited by the Department of Health as an HIV/AIDS treatment hub, opened in June last year. ARV stops the multiplication of the infected person’s viral load, slowing down the progress of the disease, and preventing transmission of the virus. In some countries, the use of ARV drugs has helped effectively lower the incidence of HIV infection to about 1 percent and eventu-

ally stabilized the detected cases. The IPHO launched the “Love Month Testing Day” to encourage more residents to submit themselves to screening or testing so they would “know their HIV status”. Codilla said they mainly targeted couples and “young ones”, especially students who are considered highly vulnerable to HIV infection. The IPHO recorded 88 new HIV/AIDS cases in the province last year, with 20 already in an advanced stage. Most of the confirmed cases involved males aged 15 to 35 years who engaged in “risky sexual behaviors”, among them gays, bisexuals, men who have sex with men (MSMs), and others who engage in unprotected sex and with multiple partners. Some of the victims are currently undergoing ARV drug treatment at the HACT Clinic.(PNA)

DAVAO CITY -- The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) 11 is pushing for a stronger partnership with local government units (LGU) and communities in their fight against illegal logging. Newly-installed DENR 11 regional director Ruth M. Tawantawan urged all her field officials to further strengthen their partnership with the LGU and communities to help them in their campaign against any environment destruction. Tawantawan said the LGU and community are the ones who can give assistance when it comes to implementing the Department’s Programs and Projects such as their fight against illegal logging and any environmental destruction.

Tawantawan assumed as DENR 11 regional director on February 6 and immediately talked to her field officials to be vigilant in stopping illegal logging activities in their respective areas. This order is also in line with the present administration’s plan to implement a total log ban in the country. The DENR right now has intensified its campaign against illegal logging in Davao Oriental where they seized tons of logs in different areas of the province. On February 10, DENRCommunity Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) of Baganga seized 16 pieces of Dipterocarp flitches with a volume of 485 board feet, 2017 at Sitio Palo 8, Barangay Sal-

ingcomot. The success of the operation was not possible without the reports coming from concerned local residents in the area. Last February 8, 23 pieces of Mancono logbolts were found abandoned by the personnel of Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENRO) of Davao Oriental and CENRO of Lupon along a mining road in Sitio Trinidad Chapter, Barangay Maputi, Banaybanay, Davao Oriental. Based on their initial investigation, the team could not establish the owner of the logbolts since nobody was around during the apprehension. The logbolts were manually hauled by

Happiness within that this world could not give The Gospel of Jesus Christ (February 17, 2017-Friday) Mark 8:1-10”In those days, when there was again a large crowd and they had nothing to eat, Jesus called His disciples and said to them, “I feel compassion for the people because they have remained with Me now three days and have nothing to eat. “If I send them away hungry to their homes, they will faint on the way; and some of

them have come from a great distance.” And His disciples answered Him, “Where will anyone be able to find enough bread here in this desolate place to satisfy these people?” And He was asking them, “How many loaves do you have?” And they said, “Seven.

‘PH faces bright growth prospects amid uncertainty’ THE world faces great uncertainties ahead, with global trends in leadership shifting away from cooperation to protectionism. Despite the dubious times, global analyst and CEO of Difference Group, Dr. Dan Steinbock, believes the Philippines is on the right path to continue and capitalize on its positive growth. At a seminar organized by state think tank Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS), Steinbock detailed a foreboding outlook of the future. The radical polarization in the European Union over issues of immigration and unity, Beijing getting ready for the next Politburo, the impact of demonetization in India, and US President Donald Trump recalling policies and plans rolled out during the Obama administration, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), have made it difficult to predict economic outcomes. Under Trump, the US’s withdrawal from the TPP and forcible renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Act (NAFTA) has put regional and global trade partnerships at an unease. Steinbock says the Philippines has to be mindful of the risks of new protectionist policies that can hit remittances and its offshore

industries. According to Steinbock, policymakers and leaders should strive to develop the country’s manufacturing sector. A strong manufacturing sector will be able to

not only sustain the country’s consistently positive growth on average, it will also take the economy to the next level, and help the country reduce its exposure to external risks.

Kilometer Zero in Mariveles, Bataan. On the other hand, the Freedom Trail will feature a punishing 160-kilometer run with individual and team relay categories for

marathoners as well as similar-distanced bike run. The new event will be held from April 10 – 11 and will cover the Death March route from Mariveles, Bataan to Capas, Tarlac. “Once again, Philippine Veterans Bank, together with our partners, is putting

a segment of our nation’s history into the forefront of our national consciousness with the Bataan Freedom Run and the Freedom Trail,” said PVB Chairman Dr. Roberto F. de Ocampo, OBE. “These events are not only challenging physically but also mentally to the

runners and bikers but they are doing this to honor the World War II veterans who endured and made the ultimate sacrifice during the Death March seventy-five years ago.” The 75th Anniversary of the Bataan Death March will be celebrated worldwide

Why Learning English Is Important? By Genevive Osios Poliran

If you want to be a knowledgeable person, English is important to be learned. Having an ability in English also will help students to study because what he/she learned is not limited to one in their country and it is like a window to the world because by English you can learn about the world and you can get information from the world. When we know the importance of English for life, we also know the better time to learn English. English has several advantages when it has been taught since in an elemen-

tary school education -three of which are: elementary school age, is a brilliant time to learn a second language. Second, preparation in Junior high school and third, preparation to face Globalization Era. Beside Mother Tongue children have a good brain condition to receive something new .In elementary school, teacher teach students step by step, they teach them words that is near with their activity or environment with pictures or they would give them pictorial dictionary for the pupils easy to remember. In Junior high school

after graduated from Elementary, English is not a strange anymore to them and English lesson is compulsory subject. It is a foreign language, so the students should learn it since in an elementary school to avoid difficulties .The most important of learning English is time. Students need a long time to comprehend grammatical structures because he/ she does not have a basic ability related to those structures, patience and have a strong will to learn English. Another advantage also is to face globalization

era. Learning English since elementary has many good effects for the globalization era. Students can easily get job and one of the requirements of good job is skill in English. So, today students and other professionals can compete globally. Some of our young professionals worked in other countries confidently and acquired higher position because they know how to communicate in English. So English is important in an elementary school education because the better time to learn second language is in that stage.

and the twin events are PVB’s contribution to the worldwide remembrance of this infamous chapter in WWII history. Since 2014, the Philippine Veterans Bank, its partners, and the Provincial Government of Bataan as well as the Philippine Veterans Affairs Office (PVAO) have held the Bataan Freedom Run in honor of WWII veterans who endured the death march in 1942. With the new Freedom Trail event this year, organizers expect to bring together an estimated 5,000 participants apart from local spectators, mostly from Bataan, Pampanga and Tarlac, and in Manila, as well as descen-

dants of the Death March survivors here and abroad. The Bataan Freedom Run, organized by Without Limits, is presented by the Philippine Veterans Bank (PVB) in partnership with the Philippine Veterans Affairs Office (PVAO), Provincial Government of Bataan, Freeport Area of Bataan Investor Locator Association (FABILA), History Channel Asia, ANC News Channel, and WhenInManila. Com. Proceeds from the Bataan Freedom Run will be used for the maintenance of Death March markers located in Bataan province. On the other hand, the Mariveles-San FernandoSee sets, page A5

mining companies in their communities. “These communities have remained poor despite the mining operations. The rivers and coastal areas are very important source of water and food. They suffer food insecurity and health problems. How could we consider this responsible mining?” she said. “The claim of the apologists that mining closure as the cause of suicide is irresponsible. Extreme poverty and disaster will trigger suicide. They cannot use the workers as economic shield. They do not genuinely care about workers. I would rather see the government support agriculture than resource extraction that consumes more than it gives,” she said. Mylai Santos, director of Ecoteneo Division of the Ateneo de Davao University, echoed the same support for Sec. Lopez by saying it was high time that the stakeholders put the environmental and people’s general welfare at the forefront of development. A DENR press release issued on Tuesday quoted Lopez as saying that her decision is backed by the provisions of the Philippine Mining Act of 1995 that gives her the power to regulate and make decisions pertaining to watersheds and even cited the Forestry Code, which “mandates that surface mined areas should be brought back to its natural state.” “This is to show you that whatever dictum I make on watersheds, this is in fact protected by the Mining Act of 1995 which says that we must enhance national growth in a way that effectively safeguards the

environment and protects the right of the affected communities,” the release quoted Lopez. The release added that last week’s closure of 23 mining operations – 15 of them operating within the watershed areas – were based on the outcome of the industry-wide audit conducted by DENR since July 2016. In a statement, the Union of Peoples’ Lawyers in Mindanao (UPLM) said it strongly supports Lopez’ closure and suspension orders, describing the “bold initiative” as “legally and morally justified in the light that some mining companies have become ‘untouchables’ because of their influence in government.” It added that with the entry of a new administration under President Duterte, “change has come.” “These mining companies’ bad-practices have to be stopped” and that Lopez’ action is “within her mandate and dictate under our laws and provision in the Constitution.” Due process Rodulfo Palma, president of the Alliance of Responsible Miners of Region (ARMOR) 11, called for “due process” in the issuance of closure orders and cancellations of MPSAs by the environment chief. “It’s not even a usual Valentine’s gift for all the communities, specifically members of the host communities of the mining companies,” he said. He said mining companies will take appropriate actions after they receive the show cause orders to allow them to respond within seven days “why their MPSAs should not be cancelled for threatening watersheds, which are a major source of drinking

Friday, February 17, 2017 and recreational water for many communities.” “For mining companies, what we are waiting for is the serving of the notices so that the mining companies can also evaluate and know the specific basis for the cancellation or issuance of such order without which, the mining companies would be in limbo on what to do,” he said. Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) 11 director Wilfredo G. Moncano expressed dismay over the environmental chief ’s pronouncement by saying her decision is not only killing the mining industry but also veering away from President Rodrigo R. Duterte’s promise of industrialization. “It’s a sad day because …the statement or pronouncement of President when he assumed office that the direction of the country is for industrialization. Now what will happen to that direction if the mining industry is slowly being killed? The mining industry for that matter is an important component of industrialization. We want to produce our own steel products, we need to have mines operating to feed to these steel manufacturing companies. It will really be a direction that is contradicting the direction of a president,” he said. Lopez announced on February 14 that 75 MPSA’s will be given show cause orders, 37 of them in Mindanao. Nine out of the 37 are in Davao Region – four in Compostela Valley (Kingking Mining Corp., Alsons Development and Investment Co., Inc., King Eagle Exploration and Mining Corporation, Napnapan Mineral Resources, Inc.) and five in Davao Oriental (Dabawenyos Minerals Corporation, Phil. Youbang Mining International Corp., Sinophil Mining and Trading Corporation, Core Mining Corporation, Oro-East Mining Company, Inc.) He said about 400 direct workers will be displaced by the closure order but he added mining companies will suffer from major losses in terms of future investments.

“If they proceed with the cancellation, it will result in the loss of taxes, loss of royalties, loss of real property taxes, loss of employment, loss of social development and management program for the communities, and of course, the aspiring professionals. All of these will be lost,” he said. (Antonio L. Colina IV/ MindaNews)

He said three government troops under the 10th ID were also abducted by the rebels; two in Columbio, Sultan Kudarat and one, a member of Citizens Armed Forces Geographical Unit (CAFGU) in Davao Oriental. Four civilians were also forcibly taken by the NPAs during the period – two from Agusan del Sur and another two from Compostela Valley. Batchar also reported of the increased activities of the NPAs the region, including the forced recruitment of civilians in the countryside. “NPA recruitments started during the unilateral ceasefire. They benefited from the declaration of ceasefire by recruiting new members in the countryside,” Batchar said. He pointed out that the eight NPA members captured in Sarangani province were all new recruits. “The eight NPAs are now undergoing inquest procedure. They were charged with frustrated murder case,” he added. (PNA)

it is not yet definite. President Widodo will be coming to the Philippines for the ASEAN Summit, he added. Napitupulu said with this route, there will be more direct trade although there are already 50 Indonesia products penetrating the Philippine markets. “There will be dramatic change and significant impact with this RoRo,” he said. He said that under the existing route, the cargoes reach Manado in three to five weeks, passing first to Manila then Manila to

Manado. If cargo shipment passes through the GenSan-Bitung route, Napitupulu said it will just be less than three days with lesser cost so price of commodities will be lower. Dr. Maria Lourdes Monteverde, past president of the Davao City Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (DCCCII) and the proponent of the ASEAN RoRo project, said the RoRo would lessen the value of time and the transportation cost between countries and would enhance trading. Monteverde cited instances when shipment of goods from China to Jakarta takes about a week; then, Jakarta to Manado for another two to three weeks. Whereas, this RoRo would hasten trading through

A7

the Philippines which is a strategic hub for distribution of goods all over Asia. Monteverde said the required volume of cargoes for shipment is at 300 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent unit) and the type of cargoes are still being identified. Among the in-bound cargoes are cement, guano fertilizer, copra, aluminum ingots, activated carbon/ coconut shells, furniture. The out-bound cargoes are dressed poultry, assorted cuts of pork, fruits, packaging materials.(PNA) DEED OF EXTRAJUDICIAL SETTLEMENT OF REAL ESTATE WITH DEED OF ABSOLUTE SALE OF A PARCEL OF LAND

Balingasag’s pride adjudged Miss Kuyamis 2017 Best in Swimsuit T

Story by MARK FRANCISCO Photos by ERCEL MAANDIG

HE pride of Balingasag, 18-year-old Berjayneth Chee, was the unanimous choice of all five judges during the Miss Kuyamis 2017 swimsuit competition held last December 29 at the scenic Blue View Resort in El Salvador City.

Chee wowed the judges and even the audience led by Misamis Oriental Gov. Yevgeny Vincente Emano with her curves and grace and went on grabbing the coveted laurel of the afternoon. Chee’s win didn’t come as a surprise though. Despite her precarious young age, Chee is already a veteran of many beauty tilts. She was Mutya ng Bulua 2015 and she’s currently the reigning Miss PRISAA 2016. But Chee was able to be noticed on the local mainstream beauty circuit when she joined Miss Silka Northern Mindanao 2016 last September. Although she wasn’t able to snatch the top spot, local fashion photographers including

this writer were also unanimous in predicting that the 5’8” beauty has a long way to go in the beauty pageant scene here and even on a nationwide scale. Chee is joined by other candidates Kristian Larroza (Alubijid), Princess Milcah Faith Achas (Claveria), Elizabeth Amahan (El Salvador City), Quennie Galarozza (Initao), Ma. Adela Vanguardia (Jasaan), Sushmita Agbong (Lagonglong), Cariza Mae Daa (Laguindingan), Gay Marie Sarsaba (Lugait), Danna Rose Socaoco (Magsaysay), Sharlle Neilijan Gomonay (Manticao), Rona Cristy Flores (Medina), Elmarie Quinones (Naawan), Mona Rica Atasan (Salay), Quinee Factura

(Tagoloan) and Mona Berdejo (Talisayan) who will vie for Miss Kuyamis 2017 with their coronation to be held on January 12 at 6:30 p.m. at the provincial capitol grounds. Prior to that, the candidates will participate in the yearly Black Nazarene procession from Pelaez Sports Center to the Archdiocesan Shrine of

the Black Nazarene on January 8 and the Parade of Beauties on January 9. The following day they will plant kuyamis seedlings.
