Oro councilor sounds alarm on unsanitary tattooing By MARK FRANCISCO Correspondent

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY -- Councilor Ma. Lourdes Gaane sounded alarm bells on health hazards posed by tattoo shops in the city. A physician by profession, Gaane and two other councilors from her committee on health – George Goking and Suzette Daba – inspected two tattoo shops in downtown Cagayan de Oro and discovered that they did not have proper disposal of wastes especially the used needles. Used needles are a cause of concern because they could accidentally draw blood from the tattoo customer and transferred to the next person. One of the platforms of the infection of the deadly HIV is through blood transfusion. In particular, Gaane found out that the used needles were merely thrown in bins along with other household trash.

“This should not be the case,” the medical practitioner-turned-politician said. “These are hazardous and cannot be kept in standard trash bins. Since they do not have the tools to destroy the needles, they just collect and keep them in empty mineral bottles.” “This is also true for the used globes, paper towels, ink caps and leftover ointments. These are all considered infectious waste that must be separated from other garbage,” she pointed out. Gaane also decried the fact that inkers in Cagayan de Oro do not prepare a waiver for their customers to sign but merely gave oral briefings to them before the procedure takes place. With that, Gaane is authoring an ordinance outlining regulations for the tattoo industry in Cagayan de Oro. The ordinance is now at the committee on health level.

6 soldiers wounded in Bukidnon clash; brgy officials warned By MARK FRANCISCO Correspondent

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – Bukidnon was the site of fresh fights between the military and the New People’s Army (NPA) anew where six soldiers were wounded earlier this week after an explosive was hurled at the troops while patrolling in the outskirts of barangay Cawayan, Quezon town. In a belated report reaching the 4th Infantry Division, spokesperson 1st Lt. Tere Ingente said that the soldiers are now recuperating at Camp Evangelista Station Hospital in Cagayan de Oro City, sustaining only minor injuries. NPA spokesperson Ariel Magbanwag said in a separate email that at 3:00 p.m. that day, the NPAs chanced upon the patrolling soldiers

and lobbed an explosive at them while simultaneously firing with their weapons. Magbanwag bloated the number to 13 casualties on the military side but Ingente said there were only six Army troopers injured. There were no confirmed casualties on the NPA side because Magbanwag refused to comment on the matter. Ingente said the wounded soldiers belonging to the 88th Infantry Battalion supporting the community support efforts of the 403rd Infantry Brigade. 403rd Infantry Brigade commander Brig. Gen. Eric Vinoya expressed dismay at the presence of the NPAs in five barangays of Quezon town, threatening to report the barangay officials to Interior Secretary Eduardo See clash, page 6

Isuzu Philippines seals partnership with GMA Kapuso Foundation As part of its corporate social responsibility program, Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC), the country’s leader in commercial vehicle segment, has formally signed a memorandum of agreement with GMA Kapuso Foundation (GMAKP)—the socio-civic arm of GMA Network—in response to provide vehicle assistance and emergency relief operations to communities across the country. The partnership aims to help over 600,000 individuals who are affected with calamitystricken and underserved communities. Most of these beneficiaries are recipients of Operation Bayanihan Project—a

series of relief operations and medical missions; and “Unang Hakbang sa Kinabukasan” project, which focuses on the importance of education

by providing complete set of school supplies to underprivileged students. Isuzu Philippines Corporation President

Volkswagen Philippines, the official importer and distributor of Volkswagen vehicles in the country, now offers the Golf GTS Highline variant to jumpstart 2018 for both Volkswagen fans and car enthusiasts alike. Since the Volkswagen Golf GTS was introduced in the Philippines in May 2017, the local market has warmly welcomed one of the German carmaker’s most successful brands. The Golf GTS (Grand Touring Sport) wagon body style carries the DNA of the original Golf, which has sold over 30 million

units in seven generations of production, but offers 350 liters more cargo space than its hatchback version. The GTS wagon style is ideal for those who love the power and performance the Golf has been known for over the years, yet still value the comfort and space of a wagon. The Golf GTS Highline is powered by the 4-cylinder, in-line 2.0 TDI diesel engine mated to the 6-speed DSG transmission system, and generates 150 PS of power at 3,500-4,000 rpm, and classleading maximum torque of 340 Nm at 1,750-3,000 rpm.

The electromechanical speedsensitive power steering, 15-inch front ventilated and rear disc brakes, the struts and 3-point wishbone with stabilizer front suspension and torsion beam (for the comfort yet ability to carry heavy cargo), add to the premium feel of the Golf GTS Highline ride. The Golf GTS Highline comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, and is feature-packed with the following: Bi-Xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights; fog lamps with static cornering lights; front wiper with rain sensor;

“Scrape to metal” or “retouch” During my color-coding days, I normally take Uber. Regardless of LTFRB’s misgivings about Uber, I personally find UBER quite efficient, economical and practical. I must have inherited my budget consciousness from my late mother, Sofia Rivera Bunye. So you guessed it right, I always opt for ride-sharing. Savings aside, I also use Uber for the opportunity to pick on the brains of the driver - my favorite man on the street - as I try to research for my weekly newspaper column. With the last driver, however, it was the other way around. He obviously recognized me as I settled on my seat. As soon as we got going for my destination, he asked me: “Sec, ano ho ba ang tingin niyo dito sa federalism?”

Wow. I almost fell off my seat. How do I explain this complex subject in ten minutes or less to someone who, in all probability, has very limited exposure to law or political science? I told Narding (the Uber driver) that switching to federalism is like buying a new car. The first question to ask oneself is: Do you really need a new car? So I asked Narding about the car he is driving – a Toyota Vios which he owned. I asked him if he was satisfied with its performance. He answered affirmatively so I told him if that’s the case he did not need a new car. I asked him next if his car ever suffered any damage which needed urgent repair. Again, he answered “yes”. He explained that his car was scratched by another vehicle not so long ago.

So he brought his car to a neighborhood shop to get a repair quotation. The shop owner initially quoted a horrendous figure for a “hilamos” or a “scrape to metal” repaint job. “Pina “retouch” ko na lang ho. Para din naman hong bago. Malaki pa ho ang diperensiya sa presyo at nakuha ko ng mas maaga ang aking sasakyan,” Narding said. “There you have it,” I told Narding. “You have answered your own question.” Our 1987 constitution which provides for a “unitary” government undoubtedly has some shortcomings. But these defects can be cured by a simple “retouch”. As peddled by its proponents, a federal government (the opposite of unitary government) promises greater autonomy for local govern-

Ignacio Bunye

ments which have been complaining against too much control from “Imperial Manila”, the national government. But greater autonomy is still possible without having to change our constitution and without having to switch to a new form of government. My proposal is simple: Just change, by ordinary legislation, the sharing of income between the national government and local governments. Believe me. You will arrive at the same desired results. I explained to Narding that right now, revenues (net of some deductions) are split 60:40 between the See metal, page 6

Letters from Davao

Symptoms of hopelessness I am intrigued by the recent turn of events. Why is there so much brouhaha over press freedom following the ordered closure of the operations of Rappler, a media outfit which was discovered to be generously funded by a foreign outfit known for its covert destabilization activities in foreign government and leaders not friendly to America? How much more money had been infused to discredit the Duterte government that a number of radical organizations and foreignfunded media firms suddenly emerged in an unusual activism that stemmed from Rappler’s closure? Stop, look and listen. Have they lost their freedom which they claimed was deprived of them? It was all about suppression of press freedom which Rappler complained of following the closure order by the Securities and

Exchange Commission. But should SEC just watch in akimbo after it discovered that a notorious foreign funder — Omidyar Network (ON) — can intrude into the editiorial content and policies of the media company? I do not wish to comment further on the case of Rappler which is now with the Court of Appeals but the outfit itself is actively covering activities that had proceeded from its claim that its freedom had been curtailed and the activists, as if on cue, damning it and walking out of class to “fight Duterte’s dictatorship and tyrannical attacks on the youth and people”. The sound and fury seem to drown the basic issue on what is (press) freedom and what is criminal. But this is not even as simple as determining whether it is just an issue of freedom or crime. This is intertwined with

the issues of nationalism, sovereignty and national security which are stonewalled in the razzmatazz and drama taking place in the University of the Philippines school campus, the leftist legal fronts like Kilusang Mambubukid, Kabataan Party List, the Senate hall and unescapably the foreign funded media organizations. The issue of press freedom and crime had been convoluted. The noise and sloganeering appears to be an attempt at concealing the crime of the past administration among them the dengvaxia horror and the Mamasapano massacre of the police 44 Special Action Force. It is used by the moribund opposition and some onion-skinned politicians to question bloggers and social media platform like Facebook which impliedly Senators like Grace Poe and Manny Pacquiao want to sanction. Poe even raised

Jun Ledesma

the possibility of barring Facebook in the Philippines. Pacquiao is hurting some nosy bloggers are romancing his romance. The opposition charged that pro-Duterte supporters and bloggers used Facebook to spread fake news. Bloggers from all political persuasions and ideology use FB and funny, because the senators and the antiDuterte bloggers aimed their turrets on Asec. Mocha Uson as if all the fake news emanates from her. They spared no words in discrediting her for mistakenly citing that Mt. Mayon is located in Naga. What a big issue that was and still is and Uson remains quiet See symptoms, page 10

Think A Minute

Let Go of the Controls

Think a minute… A pilot was flying his small airplane, a Cessna 150, when suddenly he lost control. His plane began spinning and falling to the ground! He panicked and began doing everything he could think of with the controls. Finally, after a few seconds, he remembered his teacher’s words of instruction: “If you ever go into a spin and start falling in this plane, the Cessna 150, just let go of the controls! This kind of plane will stop falling and fly straight again by itself.” But letting go of the controls and trusting the plane

to fly straight and save him was the hardest, scariest thing for this pilot to do. Finally, he pulled his hands off the controls and waited. After many seconds of his Cessna plane spinning and falling, it returned to just normal, level flying and he was safe again! Even though the plane fell more than half a mile, the pilot survived because he trusted the plane enough to let go. If you’re in trouble or going through a major problem, decision, or crisis in your life. You may be feeling like you must do all kinds of things to fix it. But nothing you’re doing is working, so

you’re frustrated and worried. You know the best thing you can do is what that pilot finally did. Just take your hands off the controls and stop trying to change and fix that situation or person yourself. It’s hard to do, especially if you feel you’re the only person who is trying to do anything about it. But why not just let go and ask Jesus to forgive you for living your own wrong way. Then, ask Him to take full charge of your whole life, including your problem. Put every area of your life into God’s hands: your future, schooling, job and family, all your worries

Jhan Tiafau Hurst

and problems. It’s only then that Jesus can start making everything in your life work together for your good and happiness. Every day, Jesus will help you know what you should do, and also how to trust Him to always do His part. It’s only then that you’ll finally have real peace and confidence, even while you’ve got problems. Just Think a Minute…

national government and local governments. With the complicated and, I would even say, inequitable sharing, not much is left for LGUs. “Hindi hating kapatid ang nangyayari,” I explained to Narding. My solution: Give the LGUs greater fiscal autonomy. Revise revenue sharing to 50:50, or better still, make it 40:60 in favor of local governments. And let us use gross collection as the basis for sharing. “Eh Sec, kung ganyan ho pala ka-simple, bakit gusto pa rin ng ilan na magpalit ng gobyerno?” I replied: “Malay ko. Baka may ibang agenda.” Narding caught on immediately: “Hindi ho kaya term extension, Sec?” PFVR – the inimitable golfer It is always a nice experience to bump into former President Fidel Valdez Ramos, who remains undisputably the No. 1 Favorite Adopted Son of Muntinlupa City. Among his numerous direct contributions to Muntinlupa’s progress, PFVR signed into law the City Charter of Muntinlupa. The city is celebrating its 23rd Cityhood Anniversary this March 1. My latest encounter with PFVR was during the 118th anniversary of Manila Bulletin on February 2 at the historic Manila Hotel.

An avid golfer, PFVR inevitably asks about one’s game. “Toting, have you ever shot your age in golf or lower?” “Never, Mr. President, “ I told him. “I have done it 11 times!”, he justifiably bragged. As proof, he handed me a golf scorecard of some of his memorable games. At 79, PFVR shot a 78 at the Philippine Navy golf course (2007). At 85, he shot 80 also at the Philippine Navy Golf course. (2013) He equaled his age, 86, when he played at Camp Aguinaldo (2014). At 87, PFVR played another 86. This was also at Camp Aguinaldo (2015) In the last game, he was in a flight which included Gen. Gerry Kagaoan, Ysmael Bergado, Gen. Mitch Templo and Ambassador Acmad Omar. “Wala pang ‘give’ yan. Lahat ‘putt through’. You ask Mitch Templo.” In LPGA PRO-AMs, PFVR has partnered with such golfing greats as Annika Sorenstam, Lorena Ochoa, Christie Kerr, Paula Creamer,

In the statement of Secretary Año, he told us to give him a list of government officials supporting the NPA terrorists,” Vinoya said. Barangay officials are under the direct control of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG). No. 3601 or an act creating NIA, also condones unpaid irrigations fees and corresponding penalties of farmers with landholdings of 8 and below hectares.

explained they were actually preparing to support Duterte’s bid but the sudden twist of event when the president failed to file his candidacy at the deadline in October 16, 2015 prompted them to commit their support to Roxas. Alvarez noted that local officials in the province are lucky to have been sworn in on February 8 which also falls on the 36th founding anniversary of the party . The mass oath taking that

drove all political leaders in Agusan del Sur to switch to the administration party was the first to happen in Caraga region even as President Duterte lost to LP standard bearer Mar Roxas by 34,744 votes Duterte got 115,613 votes while Roxas got 150,613 votes in the presidential race in the province which is among the four provinces in Mindanao where the president lost. During the Basic Membership Seminar before the local officials took their oath, speakers have pointed out

that advocating for federalism is an added party principle which new members should embrace. For his part, Alvarez has called on new party members to rally behind the moves at the Lower House to pursue the legislative agenda of charter change to pave the way for federal form of government before the national and local elections in 2019. He also called on them to campaign against any senatorial candidate in the 2019 elections who do not support the moves for a federal state.

those drawing water for non-agricultural purposes are not covered by free irrigation. The new law aims to achieve the goal of the government to promote comprehensive rural development, food self-sufficiency and raise the quality of life in rural areas.

“Towards this end, the State affirms its commitment to contribute to the lowering of the cost of production through the provision of free irrigation service, and further relieve the farmers and their irrigators associations from the burden and consequence of unpaid irrigation service

fees,” stated in RA 10969. Under the law, the NIS shall continue the development, operation and maintenance of NIS although it may delegate the operation and maintenance of secondary and tertiary canals and farm ditches to “capable” irrigators associations (IAs). (Jelly Musico/PNA)

Education outsmarting poverty in the Philippines By VILLA M. TIMBAL Teacher I Gitagum Central School

WITHIN the cluster of islands known as the Philippines, povertystricken families and governments struggle to give children a proper education. Various conflicts disrupt educational opportunities such as teen pregnancies, a lack of money, a lack of books and school supplies, undertrained teachers and an abence of early-stage developmental education for one to five-yearolds. As a result, about 2/3 of children or 6.2 million are denied an education. However, organizations are improving education in the Philippines by tackling these obstacles and creating sustainable solutions. It is well known that the earlier a child receives education, the

more developed they are in basic skills like reading and writing. Thus, NGOs here work to educate children from ages one to five to enhance their reading and writing skills and allow greater opportunities for the child. Reading is a program focusing on providing adequate learning materials, books and facilities as well as instructing teachers on more effective ways to educate. Assisting in improving education in the Philippines along with the educators, NGOs assign many volunteers to coteach in Filipino schools. They also help teachers create effective language teaching curricula and train educators on more effective ways to teach children.

You can do good only once your heart is oggd also The Gospel of Jesus Christ (February 10, 2018- Saturday) Matthew 5:33-37-Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shall not forswear thyself, but shall perform unto the Lord thine oaths: But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne: Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool:

neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. Neither shall thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil: Saying says, “Promises are made to be broken.” There are many people in

our society who are liars because they never fulfill their promises. This scenario is always done in “borrowing money and in lending company.” In fact, “many establishments are closed and bankrupt due to broken promises.” Do you have loans and borrowed money? In Sirach 29:4-5-“debts must be paid” instead of making any prom-

ise to avoid sins. In James 5:12-But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and [your] nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation. This is true since human being is changeable in emotion and thinking. It is very easy for us to make statements but not show-

DAR starts work for road and water project in Tagbina By Joie L. Ceballos Regional Information Officer

Tagbina, Surigao del Sur – Coffee farmers in Tagbina, Surigao del Sur will no longer have a hard time transporting their products months from now as the Department of Agrarian Reform 9DAR) commenced work for the concreting of road from Sitio Mabuhay to Kahayagan. A groundbreaking ceremony led by DAR 13 Regional Director Engr. Felix B. Aguhob and Tagbina Mayor Generoso Naraiso was held last February 6, 2018 in Brgy. Kahayagan, Tagbina, Surigao Sur. RD Aguhob said that the 4.67-kilometer road concreting is funded under the DAR Project Convergence on Value Chain Enhancement for Rural Growth and Development (ConVERGE). “This road project amounting to P30.9 million is expected to aid the value-chain process of the coffee products in Tagbina”, he added. Mayor Naraiso thanked the DAR in behalf of the people of Tagbina. “Out of 19 municipalities in Surigao del Sur, it is our Tagbina who is blessed to have this road and water project”, he said in his message. In the same occasion, the

groundbreaking for the Extension of Level II Potable Water System in Sitio Mabuhay was also held. According to Aguhob, the water system project is helpful in the production and processing cycle of the coffee. In his message, Surigao Sur PARPO II Benjamin Mataksil encouraged the beneficiaries and the community to take care of the project. “Let us work together so that these projects will help realize the dreams of Tagbina coffee farmers for a better quality of life”, he stressed. Arlyn Ruiz, chairwoman of the Kahayagan Water System Sanitation Association (KAWASA) said that the water

project will greatly help not only in their livelihood but more so in their day to day living. She furthered that with easier household chores, they will have enough time to attend to their children and their livelihood. Seventy (70) households in addition to the existing 300 households will benefit the P2 million water expansion project. For Carmelita Samoya, member of the Mabuhay Kahayagan Coffee Growers Cooperative (MKCGC), the road project, which they have been dreaming for a long time, will greatly help them in their coffee production and

processing business. “Finally, we can now experience a better road. Thanks to the DAR”, Sayoma said. The MKCGC started with 140 member-farmers who are recipients of land award from the DAR in 2010 but have started growing coffee since 1965. Under Project ConVERGE, the MKCGC will be the lead organization of the Coffee Production, Rejuvenation, Processing and Marketing project. Project ConVERGE is jointly funded by the Government of the Philippines represented by DAR and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).

cameras. Jun Evasco, the campaign manager, was surprised to learn that not a few domains carried out news and videos of the campaign sorties. They were later dubbed as trolls but, who cares. Their message reached the masses and the videos of the Duterte campaign were viewed by millions all over the country and by Overseas Filipino Workers who were cheering for the candidate of their kind. Were they viewing fake news in living colors? The political opposition has never gotten over their defeat. The votes were just too overwhelming no amount of machination and cheating reversed the outcome. Until today, they cannot come to terms with realty. They blamed Facebook and Zuckerberg for their humiliating defeat and as the midterm election is nearing they want to ban Facebook. This time, they charge FB for being a harbinger of what they claim are fake news. Symptoms of their hopelessness and defeat are showing this early. I wonder whether they will blame the Social Weather Station and Pulse Asia for the “excellent” trust rating of Duterte. I wonder too whether they suspect the international credit rating firms for the investment and stable grade they gave to the Philippine economy under Duterte. I wonder whether they find the BIR and BOC collection figures fakes. Will they blame the Supreme Court for affirming the extension of martial law in Mindanao? 2018 is a “Build, Build, Build” year.

Bringing hope and positive changes to the indigenous society, Jason Roy T. Sibug is this year’s TOYM honoree for community development. He is an indigenous leader who conceptualized and led the flagship program called “Balik Tribo”, which showed his humanitarian effort. For Sibug, who is the President of Tuklas Katutubo (a National Organization of Indigenous Peoples (IP) in the Philippines), being a TOYM honoree is an opportunity to further raise awareness on the various IP communities in the Philippines. It also helps strengthen the campaign for the non-working holiday that will serve as the recognition of their rituals and their heroes. “It’s our venue where we campaign for indigenous people’s issues and to solve issues as well in other areas.

She is currently a news reporter for ABS-CBN, but she began her career as a journalist by producing documentaries for ABS-CBN’s “The Correspondents” in 2004.

To her, it is a craft that uses information to distribute power to all Filipinos. It gives every Filipino the power to know the truth, so that everyone is not so easily swayed by fake news and misinformation. Journalism, for Zambrano, gives everyone the power to
