It’s not family feud, says Misor lawmaker Volume IV, No. 125 web portal:


B enedict wanted to claim moral and family ascendancy being the elder brother. By fielding his own daughter, the last-termer mayor wanted to claim the seat through the “equity of the incumbent principle.” A nephew, a son of the former congressman who was the eldest among the Lagbas siblings, is running as vice mayor. Lagbas, on the one hand, is fielding his own eldest son, “Taras,” a former town councillor, as his running mate. So it’s going to be uncle against niece for mayor and first degree cousins against each other for vice mayor. Their respective line up for councillor also has

CAGAYAN de Oro City--A member of the Neri clan, claiming to be a representative of Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte’s PDPLaban, filed his Certificate of Candidacy (COC) with the Commission on Elections (Comelec) provincial office as candidate for the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) in the second legislative district of Misamis Oriental. Thirty-seven year-old Glenn Neri, whose resume includes being a paramedic and a safety engineer in Iraq prior to his 2012 return here, hails from the Neri clan of Cagayan de Oro City, Claveria (Misamis Oriental) and Talakag (Bukidnon). Although still a neophyte in politics (he backed out being a Talakag vice-mayoralty candidate in the 2013 elecRUFUS FILES COC. Rep.

SUGBONGCOGON, Misamis Oriental--Even before the main protagonists for the mayoralty post in this town could file their respective Certificates of Candidacy (COCs), the May 2016 elections in this town is being dubbed as “the family feud” as they are blood-related. Graduating Sangguniang Panlalawigan member Benedict Lagbas is the Padayon Pilipino bet against his niece, a daughter of his younger brother who is also on his final term as mayor of this town. Efforts to reconcile their political differences months ago that even involved the local bishop of the Iglesia Filipina Independiente (IFI), the congregation the family belongs, proved futile.

DAVAO City––Mayor Rodrigo Duterte’s final word on the Presidency is a “no,” with the filing of his certificate of candidacy for mayor at 2:40 p.m. on Thursday, October 15. Duterte did not personally show up at the Commission on Elecions office in Magsaysay Park. He authorized City Administrator Melchor Quitain to file his COC, accompanied by the mayor’s Chief Executive Assistant, Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go who wore a white collared shirt with this message printed in red: “No is no” and at the back, “Sinabi ko na, ayaw ko, ang titigas ng ulo nyo.” (I told you I don’t want to. You’re so stubborn). “Thank you but I have decided to run as mayor of Davao,” Quitain read the one-sentence message from Duterte, after filing his COC. Duterte has repeatedly been egged to run for President. On September 7, he announced he was not running for President, claiming

THE Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) approved the new feed-intariff (FIT) for wind projects at Php 7.40 per kilowatthour (kWh), which is significantly lower than the previous rate of Php 8.53 per kWh. “We already approved Wind FIT of Php 7.40 during our October 6 commission meeting,” ERC chairman Jose Vicente Salazar said in a text message Thursday. The FIT is a mechanism that allows generation companies to charge at a required per kWh rate for 20 years. The current FIT is competed for through completing the project at a set deadline. The chairman explained that the National Renewable Energy Board (NREB) applied for a Wind FIT of Php 7.90 per kWh, but it had adjusted the amount due to the weighted average cost of capital (WACC), the internal rate of return (IRR) and the capacity factor. However, Salazar explained that the resolution has not been completely signed by the commissioners. See new, page A11

It’s a Matter of Trust-Sending Packages from the Philippines to Anywhere in the World Sending any package through a courier requires a certain level of trust—especially when you consider the sentiment that goes behind it. But while efficiency and reliability continue to be a hallmark of the express delivery industry, LBC goes a step further by allowing Filipinos domestically to bridge the distance with their loved ones to any part of the world where LBC is present. It also underscores the im-

portance of having a courier that you can trust, essentially becoming a partner for local businesses who hinge on the service’s convenience, consistency and dependability. With this, LBC will be making sure that each padala arrives safely, in the same condition it was dispatched, at the time it was promised, as it travels halfway across the world. “LBC is known as the go-to courier for Filipinos abroad who needs someone that can

send the padama behind each padala. But the same can be said from those who want to remind loved ones who live outside the country that they are missed back home or local businesses that need a reliable partner who can help them make operations more effective,” says Alex Ramos, Brand Head for Philippines. Certainly, the brand’s strength is in the breadth of their network which translates to convenience. To date, LBC already caters to over

250 countries worldwide. But what really differentiates the brand is the assurance that your packages get the respect and thought it deserves as it goes from one point to another—no matter the dis-

tance. As for convenience, customers can send their packages at any branch, or book a free pick-up service anywhere in Metro Manila. So whether it’s a care package of things that remind

someone of home, a letter to tell a loved one that they are missed, or an important document that needs to be delivered safely and on time, LBC makes sure that you can easily send your parcels, packages or documents to any part of the world. “The concept of the padama behind the padala is an inherently Filipino value, something that not all couriers in this industry understand. For every package sent through us, we know there’s an intent, a thought, an emotion behind it. We recognize the value of the content and acknowledge the fact it’s a lot more than that,” says Ramos. It’s a sentiment that assures Filipino customers that wherever their loved ones may be in the world or whatever their business needs, they know that LBC can be trusted to go that extra mile to get the job done right. “It goes beyond the logistics of moving packages and parcels from the Philippines to anywhere in the world. These mean a lot to the people receiving them and a lot of trust is given to us by those who send it via LBC, so it’s only fitting that we provide the kind of service that respects the confidence they have in the brand,” he ends.

Trade department reminds consumers of ‘basic’ rights Bukidnon • Camiguin • Lanao del Norte • Lanao del Sur • Misamis Occidental • Misamis Oriental

CAGAYAN de Oro City-The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in Region 10 reminds consumers of their basic rights including right to refund, replacement and repair for defective products. In a one-on-one interview with DTI region 10 Legal Officer and Chief of Consumer Welfare Division Atty. Fel Lester Brillantes during the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) radio program “Lambo Dyes” on 2 October 2015, consumers must be empowered and uphold their rights especially if they have been deceived

by faulty products in the market. He said that consumers have the basic rights specifically the right to basic needs, right to safety, right to information, right to choose, right to representation, education and healthy environment, among others. In a nutshell, he said that if product is defective, consumer has the right to refund, replacement and repair. In celebration of the Consumer Welfare Month this October with the theme “Consumer Protection in the ASEAN Economic Com-

munity,” DTI together with the private sector and CONSUMERNET, a group composed of 16 national front line agencies in region 10 have come up with activities to promote welfare of consumers. Atty. Brillantes said that consumer protection must be upheld especially in the ASEAN integration. Con-

sumer rights must not be lessened and make sure products have high quality and proven safe since there will be freer flow of goods and as member of ASEAN, complaints will be easily endorsed to other ASEAN country. He said this collaboration with different line agencies is so important

to have synergy to protect consumers especially on resolution of complaints, since after all consumer welfare is not just the business of DTI but everyone’s. First activity was a motorcade around Cagayan de Oro City and two more upcoming activities are the Regional Quiz Bee for high school students and award-

ing of DTI BAGWIS to establishments with excellent customer service and laws compliant. Meanwhile, Natalie Igot of Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and president of ConsumerNet in Region 10 said that aside from these activities, they will also have See BASIC, page A11

CDP picks ‘Maxi’ as ‘guest candidate’ for Congress Rep. Rufus Rodriguez and elder brother Party List Rep. Maximo Rodriguez, Jr. led the filing of the certificates of candidacy of the CDP’s political lineup Thursday morning. Amid a pompous parade toward the City COMELEC office in Cagayan De Oro City, a band added to the festive mood of the day. “The surroundings turned orange in color,” said a bystander whose lips seemed to be spouting after noticing the absence of a “band majorette.” By the way, the color orange is the “lucky” election color code of Rodriguez since he threw his hat in the local political fracas here

nine years ago when he ran for Congress in the city’s second district. The color orange is, therefore, noticeable in all of Rodriguez’s infrastructure projects in the district.

After the filing of the COCs, Rodriguez and his party held a press conference to formally introduce the names of CDP lineup. Except for the two members of the Liberal Party (LP) who were aligned with the incumbent city mayor, the three other LP renegades became part of the CDP ticket. They were the incumbents City Councilor Roger Abaday, of the city’s first district, who is now the running mate as Vice Mayor of Rufus Rodriguez, City Councilor Eric Salcedo, and City Councilor Bong Lao, all of the city’s second district.

Problems mean progress THINK a minute. What’s your problem? You know that not all problems are bad? In fact, having problems sometimes means you’re making progress. A big hardware business moved into the same building with another, smaller hardware store. The big hardware competitor posted signs all over the building that read: “Grand Opening.” So not to be beaten, the owner of the small hardware business posted a big sign over his store that read: “Main Entrance.” It’s successful people who know that their biggest obstacles often become their biggest opportunities.

As one smart man said: “The same big stone that’s an obstacle to a weak person is a stepping stone to success for a stronger person.” The difference is in their attitude and response. Remember, you are not

the only person with problems. Even the lion has to fight off flies! So “Don’t be afraid to face the music just because you don’t like the tune.” Many years ago, American farmers carried their potatoes in wagons to the market. As their wagons bounced along on the rough, bumpy roads, the big potatoes were always the ones that ended up on top. And it’s usually the same with people. It’s the people with bigger hearts of faith and perseverance who end up on top, after getting over their life’s bumps and problems. There’s a saying: See PROBLEMS, page A11

and young professionals. They are not of the type prone to drugs or drinks. Rather their addiction is like that of gambling. A certain compulsion dominates them and interferes in their daily duties, wasting a lot of time and energy, and sometimes, money in the process. They can look very decent and normal, at least in appearance. But we know we all have feet of clay. It would be good if we are aware of this clear and present danger, and prepare ourselves accordingly.

Early warning signs may be deterioration of grades for students, and negligence of some basic duties for the young professionals. Students who have been good in class suddenly turn south in class performance. That’s because they now find it hard to concentrate on their studies. They often interrupt their studies to answer the messages on their cellphones, and often check if there are new messages. They upload photos, usually inane selfies, on social media everyday, and comment on almost all of what their friends post in the internet. The kids are practically taken away by the many games the internet offers.

From there, things can worsen as users end up visiting porn websites, and by surfing aimlessly often end up induced to do bad things. Latent weaknesses that the users are not aware of, suddenly get activated, and if they do not have the proper defenses, then they get swallowed up. In other words, they are caught in some web of distractions quite hard to extricate from, since many sweet and irresistible rationalizations come to their mind to justify their actuations. The Internet offers its users a certain sense of immediate gratification in terms of accessibility, affordability, and anonymity. When not

Nobel laureate dies

People around the world were terribly disgusted by the death of an American Nobel laureate who died in Manila because he was not admitted by a hospital for lack of money. He was never treated. Richard Heck, a chemist, who won the Nobel award in chemistry for inventing some useful matters in science, had severe vomiting and had to be rushed to a hospital by his Filipino wife but was not admitted for lack of funds. He died shortly without being touched by a doctor. I remember so well, the same thing happened to me. The hospital rejected me because I did not have the cash. I argued angrily and I was admitted. So many poor people in the country had to die for the same reason. The government should do something to protect the health of poor Filipinos. Appropriate charges should be filed against the hospital if necessary.

PNP, AFP admit to initial hotspots, areas of concerns for 2016 polls DepEd celebrates UNO’s 70th year through IYS 2015 By Nemie M. Mariano, Ph.D. T-III / School-in-Charge Corrales Elementary School Jasaan District Division of Misamis Oriental

October 24, 2015 marks another milestone for United Nations Organization for it will be celebrating its 70th anniversarry. Philippines, as one of the original 51 UN member-states, will be as well rejoice in this celebration. Thus, Department of Education actively participates in this annual UNO celebration. October is considered as UNO Month. All elementary and high schools conduct special activities in order to commemorate the celebration.

UN has designated 2015 as “International Year of Soils” (IYS 2015) with the theme, “Healthy Soils for a Healthy Life.” In a resolution passed during the 68th UN General Assembly, this designation recognizes “the economic and social significance of good land management, including soil, particularly its contribution to economic growth, biodiversity, sustainable agriculture and food security, eradicating poverty, women’s empowerment, addressing climate change and

improving water availability.” Meanwhile, DepEd emphasized the goals of IYS 2015 in its advisory disseminated in all divisions. First, IYS 2015 is to raise full awareness among civil society and decision makers about the profound importance of soil for human life. Second is to educate the public about the crucial role that soil plays in food security, climate change adaptation and mitigation, essential ecosystem services, poverty alleviation and sustainable development. Finally, IYS promotes investment in sustainable soil management activities to develop and advocate for rapid capacity enhancement

for soil information collection and monitoring at the global, regional, and national levels. Different relevant activities are done within the month, which the famous one is the Mr. and Miss UNO. In this event, students who are representatives of each class will be wearing national constumes of different countries. The conduct of this is to show that there is truly unity among all nations. It is indeed important to educate children not just with classroom lessons. Opening their minds about their identity, race and being a member of society is also very important. UNO Month is about teaching them the true spirit of unity which is very important for them to know about.

TANDAG CITY, Surigao del Sur--Though the holding of 2016 polls is still far ahead, both the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) here have admitted to an initial list of hotspots or areas of

concerns. P/SSupt. Narciso Verdadero said critical areas had been started to be marked off but preferred to keep it still under wraps lest action to this effect would pre-empt the final one. See admit, page A11

Sara Duterte, 4 officials shave heads

DAVAO City--Social media sites are abuzz with former Davao City mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio’s posts on Wednesday with her head getting shaved and hashtags seemingly indicating support for her father in running for president in next year’s elections. This was a day after she lashed out at a netizen who appealed to her not to be selfish about his father’s political plans in running for the highest post, with her disapproval being the reason he could not make up his mind in heeding the calls of the Filipinos to run. Her photo on Instagram showing her head being shaved has generated 8,671 likes as of 8:40 p.m. Wednesday, but has garnered even more likes on Facebook at 14,503, and 10,306 shares. Its caption: “Nagpa upaw nalang ko samtang naghulat #Duterte2016 #kalboparasapagbabago #NohairWec-

are bisan walay kwarta, bisan way makinarya, bisan mapildi #justDUit.” Councilors Al Ryan Alejandre and Danilo Dayanghirang and Public Safety and Security Command Center (PSSCC) chief Frank Villaroman at the Gentlemen’s Lounge barbershop in Bo. Obrero here, and Duterte’s executive assistant Christopher “Bong” Go in his Facebook post, also had their heads shaved in support of the mayor. Gentlemen’s Lounge cashier Agnes Cuenco said the barbershop was packed with a crowd composed of media people covering the head shaving of the three city officials. She said more councilors will have their heads shaved on Thursday, although she does not know what time. His daughter and family’s disapproval and his age have been cited as among the reasons why he is not running, although he said

during the “Run Duterte Run” caravan at the Rizal Park in August that there was “50-50” chance that he might. Duterte will have served a total of 40 years in government service by 2016. He served as government prosecutor for 10 years before he was named OIC vice mayor in 1986; served as mayor from 1988 to 1998; representative of the first district from 1998 to 2001; mayor again from 2001 to 2010; vice mayor from 2010 to 2013. He was elected mayor for the seventh time with his son Paolo as vice mayor. Duterte read a letter before the Davao media last Monday, stating about his decision to his “years and years of public life in the service of Davao City and every Dabawenyo.” This was the second time that the 70-year-old mayor called for a press conference at the same function room, Blue Chateau, of the Grand Men Seng Hotel after the Sept. 7 announcement. “I am sorry to disappoint those who spent much and worked hard and long in support of me as I went all

over the country espousing the benefits and advantages of federalism. I therefore beg for everyone’s kind understanding and acceptance of my sincerest apologies. After all, there was no ambition for me to aspire for the presidency. The country does not need me. I find no need for it. I guess it is fate that wills that our long journey together should end this way,” he said. He said his daughter sent her letter, which read, “You owe nobody nothing,” and made herself inaccessible afterwards. In her response to an Instagram post, Sara said, “Do you really think a wise man and seasoned politician will decide on the basis of my opinion?” During the Philippine Councilors’ League (PCL) meeting at the SMX Convention Center Davao, DuterteCarpio said that she would give her all-out support to her father should he decide to run, but she added the mayor better stays in the city because he will be facing multitudes of problems as president.

of the Philippines Mindanao (UPMin), told reporters that the eagle’s chances of survival were slim, suffering from dehydration, starvation, and an injury on its left eye, when it was rescued Sept. 7 near Tomari Creek, one of the sources of water of Sibulan River. Mabikker, a BagoboTagabawa term for strength and power, was rescued by Bernie Apal, 36, a tribe member who chanced upon the eagle entangled and emaciated in a rattan up a cliff. The eagle was believed to be hunting for food at that time and got his left eye injured while trying to

escape from the vines. Apal said he felt sad about the eagle’s condition, the reason why he rescued it from being strapped to the vines, and walked three hours to the barangay hall of Sibulan to surrender the bird, which was later transferred under the care of Puentespina. Apal said that it was the third time he encountered an eagle of such species after living in Barangay Sibulan for 10 years.

Puentespina said that the bird, which weighed 500 grams when first brought in for treatment at the Malagos Garden Resort, gained about 300 grams in a span of a month while in his care. “The only thing I did to help the eagle was to give it my tender love and care,” he said. Most common cases of the rescued eagles, according to Puentespina, were either being gunned down,

trapped, or starved. He said it is important that eagles like Mabikker must be taken care of and preserved because they serve as biodiversity indicator that the environment is still healthy. The threats of deforestation, however, make their homes smaller while their food getting fewer. “The eagles are meateaters,” Puentespina pointed out. The bird’s starvation might have been caused by lack of food in the area, he said. He added they are not discounting the possibility that the same incident might happen again but the eagle has to be released to the forests, its natural habitat. The veterinarian appealed to residents to also do their share in protecting endangered species of eagles that if they happen to see any of them getting closer to their homes hunting on their backyard animals such as chickens, “ihatag na lang sa ilaha (just give it to them).” Among the criteria considered that the bird was ready for release were good body condition, ability to fly, and recovery of its injured eye. The pinksker’s hawkeagle has a lifespan of 40 to 50 years. “We did not see signs of neurological deficit on the bird, meaning it has See EAGLE, page A11

Chevrolet Shows What it Takes to be ‘Born Ready’ with the Colorado Tracker and the Trailblazer

Out on the road where conditions can be unpredictable and anything can happen, those who come prepared always have a clear advantage. With the harsh and oftentimes unforgiving situations faced by today’s motorists, our roads demand a new breed of drivers and vehicles that are ‘Born Ready’. Chevrolet Philippines presented two of their top-selling vehicle models that are built to withstand rough environments and inclement weather conditions - the Chevrolet Colorado Tracker and the Chevrolet Trailblazer. “With over a century of expertise in the automotive industry, Chevrolet’s diverse product line of top-notch automobiles are built to overcome obstacles, both on and off road,” says Atty. Alberto B. Arcilla, President and Managing Director of Chevrolet Philippines. “The Colorado Tracker and Trailblazer continue to win over new customers because of their commendable safety features, versatility and capability. We are proud to offer these models with segment-leading capabilities to the Filipino market.” The Chevrolet Colorado pick-up truck ups the ante even further with the introduction of the Tracker and Tracker Pro editions. These power-packed rides combine off-road truck capability, crossover refinement, and superior engine performance. The award-winning Chevrolet Trailblazer, on the other hand, sets itself apart from other mid-sized SUVs with its impressive performance, active safety features and go-anywhere capability. Its LTX and LTZ variants push the envelope even further by bundling power and performance together with power, safety and comfort, all as standard. The Colorado Tracker and Trailblazer truly epitomize Chevrolet’s ‘BORN READY’ battle cry. To test this, Chevrolet Philippines - The Covenant Car Company Inc, the exclusive importer and distributor of Chevrolet vehicles and parts in the Philippines, recently held a ‘BORN READY’ Ride and Drive Event at the Sun Valley Golf and Residential Estates in Antipolo City to put the Colorado Tracker and the Trailblazer through its paces in a rough and rugged course at the slopes of Antipolo, Rizal. READY for Fun Both equipped with the 2nd generation Duramax turbo diesel engine, the Colorado and the Trailblazer are powered by a robust 2.8-liter engine producing up to 200 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque. The signature diesel engine not only underscores an industry leap in acceleration, straight-line performance, and off-road capabilities, it also balances its output with improved fuel efficiency. Overall, the legendary Duramax diesel engine delivers no-compromise turbocharged power that is definitely fun to drive. The Trailblazer picks it up a notch by adding a premium cabin feel to the overall driving experience. Featuring a protective sound insulation system, the Trailblazer lowers the Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) levels resulting in a more relaxing in-car environment. Connectivity for work and play is made more fun. The Trailblazer LTZ and Colorado Tracker comes with Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system that features touch screen technology and media connectivity through

Bluetooth, AUX, USB, and Siri Eyes Free. The Trailblazer 4x2 LTX automatic variant adds even more with its built in Android Infotainment System offering online access with a free* one-year 4G internet connection powered by Globe Tattoo, to make the best use of built-in apps like Waze and Spotify. READY for Rough Roads Rough trails, muddy puddles and fallen debris are challenges that the 4x4 capabilities of the Colorado and the Trailblazer can easily take on. Out on the trails, vastly uneven surfaces result in twisted axles which cause loss of traction. While other vehicles may find it troublesome negotiating such courses, the Colorado and the Trailblazer’s Traction Control System helps it navigate with ease on only three and even two wheels. The advanced system detects traction variances through road and driving conditions, automatically triggering brake force, reducing engine torque, or a combination of both to prevent loss of traction. Despite the less than ideal conditions outside the vehicle, both driver and passenger are assured of a comfortable ride with the independent, double wishbone front suspension paired with a versatile 5-link coil spring rear suspension system on the Trailblazer, and rugged and reliable leaf springs on the Colorado. Steep inclines are a cinch with the Hill Assist and Descent Controls, while shifting “on-the-fly” from 4x2 to 4x4 mode is made possible with Electronic Drive Mode Select. In addition, the Colorado’s 8-crossmember ladder chassis configuration enables the vehicle to withstand high torsional stress that can be found in an extreme off-road adventure. READY for Floods With torrential rains threatening to turn city streets into oversized pools in a blink, the Colorado and Trailblazer’s ability to traverse flood water is vital. With a high beltline and a strategically placed powertrain, both units offer unmatched water wading capability. These design feature keep both the cabin and engine bay secure from swells of flood water and even shallow rapids measuring up to **800mm for the Trailblazer. The Colorado Tracker editions take it a notch higher with an added 2-inch lift that affords increased ground clearance offering a best-in-class **880mm limit while built-in snorkel intake reduces risk of water intrusion into the engine. READY for Rescue Safety is of utmost importance especially in trying times out on the road. While both the Colorado and Trailblazer are more than capable of taking themselves out of a rut, they are also equipped to offer a helping hand with 1-ton hauling capacity, 3.5-ton towing capacity, and a 6,000-lb tow

hitch with electrical receiver making them two of the most suitable road companions during emergency situations. The Colorado Tracker Pro is especially impressive with its standard 12,000-lb integrated power winch with recovery equipment package, the only pick-up in its class to offer this. The feature can mean the difference between getting stuck or conquering even the toughest of situations in deep mud, sand or gravel, or for climbing steep, slippery slopes. Further enhancing the safety aspects of the Colorado and the Trailblazer, Chevrolet has equipped both with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that offers warnings if one or more tires are significantly underinflated. READY for You Chevrolet Philippines and its 23 dealer partners, puts forth dream deals for easier ownership of that Chevrolet you’ve always wanted. Starting October 2, 2015, ownership packages for a dream purchase is now within reach through Chevrolet’s *all-in, low-down payment promos on Chevrolet’s powerful mid-sized pick-up - the Colorado (4x2 MT) for as low as Php119,000 and the award-winning mid- size SUV, the Trailblazer 4x2 LTX variant at P168,000 and 4 x4 LTZ variant at Php188,000. Chevrolet Philippines also assures its customers of a worry-free ownership experience by offering a special warranty that covers units for three years plus a twoyear extended warranty for the vehicle’s Powertrain or 100,000 kilometers, whichever comes first**. Chevrolet also provides its new clients with free three-year 24/7 roadside assistance. By simply dialing 328-CHEV, owners may avail of vehicle support, personal assistance, and information service round the clock. *Terms and conditions apply. **At maximum speed of 7kph in steady water. Deep water wading is not a normal driving condition and may affect the warranty coverage. ***Please see manufacturer/distributor warranty information booklet for more details. Colorado Tracker, Tracker Pro and Trailblazer LTX and LTZ packages are from Chevrolet Philippines.

Prayer reminds you that everything is possible with the living God The Gospel of Jesus Christ (October16, 2015-Friday) Luke 11:1-4 “Lord, teach us to pray just as John also taught his disciples.” And He said to them, “When you pray, say: `Father, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. `Give us each day our daily bread. `And forgive us our sins, For we ourselves also forgive everyone who is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation: The beauty of praying is not to

remind God of what you need, but to remind yourself that you need God. You have a duty to communicate always to your heavenly father because you are his beloved child on this earth. You need to connect him constantly because this is the greatest way to have a good relationship with him. There are many relationships broken because of miscommunication. God is God of surprises. He will surprise you along your

journey because he wants to pay you; the efforts for praying others. 1 Timothy 2:1-3”First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior. Through prayers everything will put in order and all your

dreams will come true in God’s perfect timing. Matthew 7:78”Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. Believe on this; God is not touched on what you have said and prayed but on what you have done to others. God appreciates your efforts and the quality of your character for always praying to God. He is attracted to your attitudes for being dependent to him. He is happy watching you

These diverse personalities are very much possible to clash and create conflicts. Thus, as a teacher, there should be strategies in order to prevent or if not, manage conflict well in order to turn every misunderstanding into constructive learning points. Managing different personalities is a basic thing that a teacher could do. True, it might be tough for a teacher himself has his own personality, but extending the line will do good especially with the fact that he is the moderator of the whole, diverse group. He can start it by being familiar with each one’s personality, so that it would not be so hard for him to dig what to do in case challenge arise. Building relationships with these people will also entice them to behave and do what a teacher want them to do. This is the best strategy to do especially with those individuals who choose to be independent, rather than being managed. Asking for reflection after every pressing action is done would also encourage constructive learning. Example of this is when hot situations will come up. It is important that at the end of the conversation, the teacher will explain what both sides meant to, in order for the entire class to assess and understand. Having to deal with people is a challenge, but it just takes patience, determination and wise strategies to make the entire class understand a point, amidst being different from each other.

Isidro Purisima, 402nd Infantry Brigade commander of the Philippine Army (PA) here, said hotspots could be found in some municipalities in the northern, central, and southern part of the province, including the Andap Valley Complex where the 3,000 evacuees who had been taking shelter at the Surigao del Sur Sports Center since September 1 came. Meanwhile, both high ranking officials agreed that “permit to campaign fees” imposed by the New People’s Army (NPA) on candidates had formed part of the electoral exercise here, something that had to be prevented. Moreover, classification of hotly contested areas would depend on the final list of candidates, it was learned. (NGBT/Greg Tataro Jr., Radyo ng Bayan-Tandag/ PIA-Surigao del Sur)

“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” Yes, problems may detour you and take you off course for a little while, but only you can choose to stop moving ahead. Sometimes we think that our temporary problems are permanent. But if you stay patient and positive, then the end of your problem will become the beginning of your new season of success. So why not ask Jesus Christ to take charge of your heart every day. It’s only with Him on your side, and His peace and power in your life, that you can turn every problem into progress. Just Think a Minute.

In summary, the CDP lineup has three lawyers, two medical doctors, a retired police colonel, a retired banker, and an engineer who running for the city council in the first district. In the second district, the Rodriguez team has a retired police General, two lawyers, two village chiefs (barangay captains), a village councilor, two lawyers, and two incumbent city councilors, both are run-

ning for reelection in 2016. For the city mayor, of course Rufus Rodriguez. For Congress has the CDP has incumbent Party List Rep. Maximo Rodriguez, of Abante Mindanao (Abamin) as “guest candidate” for the second district and the incumbent Rep. Rolando Uy, of the first district, as “guest candidate.” A friend wondered why the two congressional candidates are dubbed as “guest candidates.” One could sense that Rep. Maxi Rodriguez is a party list representative of the Abamin. This means that Maxi remains the number one nominee of the Abamin Party List. Here is the rub: If Maxi could not make it in 2016, but the Abamin gets the right number of votes to qualify for a nominee in Congress, Maxi, who has still one remaining term as Party List, would simply become the Abamin’s party list representative again. If Maxi wins the congressional district, then the second party list nominee will assume the post left behind by Maxi in Congress. Well, if there are other explanations, it is how we interpret why Maxi is tagged as “guest candidate.” After the Rodriguez lead Centrist Democratic Party of the Philippines (CDP) filed the party’s complete slate of candidates with the Commissions on Elections (COMELEC) Thursday, the opposition Padayon Pilipino (Move on Filipinos) would not be far behind. It is expected that the Padayon Pilipino would file the COCs of the party’s complete slate for the city today (Friday). Former City Mayor Vicente Emano, head of the Padayon, would definitely be around to dispel doubts that he is ill and unable to lead the rigors of the mayoral campaign next year. To all the candidates, we wish you all the best. May the best candidates win! Send comments/reaction:

Bad things can and should give rise to occasions for us to grow more as a person, as a family, as a community and society. They can enrich our humanity. We can resort to some immediate and stop-gap measures, like regulating the use of the Internet, using filters, monitoring, and supervising the Internet use, especially for the children. It is said, for example, that if you do not see your children in your own house, what you only have to do is to turn off the Internet, and they will come out. Of course, this and the other measures can only do so much, since the kids now are smart and can easily get around these measures. We should not stop simply in the level of regulating, stopping, discouraging, and other negative-leaning

measures, even if they are also indispensable. They are not meant to be effective for long. We should face the challenge of tackling this issue in a more positive and long-term way. And that means that especially for the children, we have to learn how to motivate them properly, giving them by word and example, precious lessons about order, prudence, temperance, sense of purpose. It’s important that despite the usual tension and conflicts, a cordial, friendly and intimate relationship exists between them and the parents, the teachers, and others with certain authority. There should be an atmosphere of openness, trust, and confidence in this relationship. When this is absent, we have a big problem to solve. For the older children, young professionals and even adults, the challenge to face is how to resolve the existential emptiness that is at the bottom of this Internet addiction and other forms of bondage. It is this existential emptiness that makes people vulnerable to be swallowed up by their passions and other weaknesses that often are hidden and sometimes masked by a façade of some virtue. Even those who are generally regarded as “good and holy people” are not exempted from this predicament. In fact, their case can be trickier and harder to handle, since they can easily hide this problem due to the many good and impressive things they do and accomplish. This existential emptiness is resolved when one is genuinely connected with God who is everything to us, our life, our wisdom, our truth, our freedom, our love, etc. This happens when one truly prays, and becomes, in St. Paul’s words, a spiritual man, going beyond sentimentalism, psychology, intellectualism, professionalism, activism, etc. There’s no other way to tackle this issue.

balance when we first saw it,” he said. Hedcor president and chief operating officer Rene Ronquillo underscored the partnership between them and the local government unit. He said they inked a memorandum of agreement with UPMin in December 2014 to do a study on Wildlife Inventory and Biodiversity and Assessment Project that includes seven sites in Sta. Cruz where Hedcor operates. Ronquillo said this will help them come up with strategies how to conserve and preserve the wildlife within Hedcor’s immediate environs. Puentespina, who is also part of the study with UPMin professor Marion John

Michael Achondo as the head, added they lack such comprehensive study that will guide them what steps to take to help the wildlife. (MindaNews)

the first day of the filing of COCs, he read a five-paragraph statement saying he will not run for president. “I believe Mayor Duterte will be the best president for our country at this time,” said Senator Alan Peter Cayetano in a press statement. Cayetano said Duterte will give the people a “real choice.” “He will either be the best President we’ve ever had or the best President we never had,” he said. “It is his choice,” said Cayetano, who declared his vice presidential bid in Davao City on September 28. He added: “We join our people in praying he will make the right decision.” Although he has already declared his intention to run for vice president, Cayetano has yet to file his COC with the Comelec. The Comelec has given all political aspirants until 5 p.m. today (October 16, 2015) to file their COC. Duterte-Cayetano tandem E a r l i e r, C a y e t a n o thanked PDP-Laban President former Senator Aquilino Pimentel III for maintaining his preference for a Duterte-Cayetano tandem to be supported by his party. In a chance interview with Senate reporters on Tuesday, Pimentel reiterated that a possible tandem between Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and Cayetano will be a more “formidable” team-up should the mayor decide to run in 2016. “I’m grateful to Senator Pimentel for his kind words. I would be honored to earn the support of his party, the PDP-Laban, for the 2016 national elections,” Cayetano said. “Senator Pimentel and I have long shared the same vision on governance and public service, and the advocacy to fight corruption in all levels,” he added. Pimentel earlier said his party is less likely to back Marcos’ VP bid, stressing that the PDP-Laban was formed specifically to lead the opposition to his late father, former President Ferdinand Marcos. “Ako mismo personally and some of my party-mates believe that a Duterte-Alan Cayetano ticket would be formidable, strong, and winnable force,” he said shortly after Cayetano officially announced his plan to run for vice president during a trip to Davao City on September 29. “Nasabi ko na formidable ang Duterte-Cayetano [tandem] kasi parehong palaban, parehong anti-corruption, at parehong may vision para sa bansa,” he further stressed.

The PDP-Laban supports Duterte for his advocacy for federalism, a system that it also espouses. With a report from

spread out in the 13 municipalities and one city in his district. Neri said that he is concerned on the upliftment of women in the countryside. After all, his wife is mediahugging and outspoken lawyer Aimee Torrefranca-Neri. Neri also said there is nothing he would criticize on the current programs being implemented by Gov. Yevgeny Vincente Emano (PaDayon Pilipino) and Rep. Juliette Uy (Liberal Party). As a candidate representing PDP-Laban, Neri said he will support any of the programs being espoused by the two political leaders in his district as long as they would benefit the residents there. “Should I win as SP member, I will see to it that we only pass legislations that are really needed by the people. They must be our utmost priority – their welfare,” he said during an interview after filing his candidacy last Wednesday afternoon before the provincial Commission on Elections (Comelec) office. Neri brings with him an overseas Filipino worker (OFW) exposure for over ten years in Iraq and the United Arab Emirates. He was doing odd jobs from being a safety engineer to a paramedic to a hand-tohand combat instructor to being a bomb disposal expert and construction crane driver. Neri is an Education graduate. He now owns a business in Claveria and oversees the law firm of his wife located in the cities of Cagayan de Oro, Makati and Davao.

another set of first degree cousins running against each other. “No. This is not an episode of family feud. The question here is who has the greatest desire and most passionate to serve the people of this town,” Lagbas said. He has served as vice mayor, mayor and provincial board member. His running mate son, Taras, was also a councillor. Together, the father and son team has a combined 29 years of public service experience. On the other hand, the team of cousins has a measly 6 years of experience combined. “This alone proves that the family track record of public service runs a direct solid line in my team. My passion is not just because of convenience,” Lagbas said. He said that once elected, he will hit the road to progress for Sugbongcogon running. “I have already the blue print for the town’s develop-

ment. In health, our priority will be transforming the lying-in clinic into a primary hospital. In agriculture, it will be cropped diversification,” Lagbas declared. He explained further that he won’t directly compete with neighboring towns with greater tourism potentials. “But since we are in the midst of towns with beautiful tourist spots, we will develop Sugbongcogon into a world class rest and restaurant stops for tourist with beautiful ambience and delicious food that will offer coconut based delicacies,” Lagbas explained.
