NCIP has failed to empower the tribal communities for 18 years

By GERRY LEE GORIT Correspondent

CAGAYAN de Oro City––A tribal leader on Thursday slammed the National Commission on Indigenous People (NCIP) over its failure to implement its mandate to empower the Indigenous Cultural Communities and Indigenous Peoples (ICCs/ IPs) in Mindanao. Datu Lolong Lipiahan,

a Higaonon tribal leader, and some of the tribal leaders belonging to the Tribal Communities Association of the Philippines, Inc. (Tricap, Inc.) converged at the Capitol University for the 4th Tribal Leaders Congress and to celebrate the 18th year anniversary of the Republic Act 8371, otherwise known as the Indigenous Peoples Rights Act (IPRA) law of 1997.

Lipiahan said the NCIP, the government agency created under IPRA, is supposed to empower the tribal communities but it did not happen. Instead, he said the IPRA law has created more troubles on the part of the tribal communities because the NCIP failed to educate the lumads on the salient features of the law. See slams, page A11

Case overload, cramped accommodation giving prosecutors a headache MISAMIS Oriental Governor Bambi Emano came to the rescue of government prosecutors assigned in Misamis Oriental whose woes include being overworked, under-compensated, house in cramped offices and with slim chances of attending even their own annual convention. These concerns were brought to the attention of the governor during the regular weekly flag-raising ceremony which was

sponsored by the Provincial Prosecutors’ Office, Monday this week. In a prepared statement, the prosecutors said it has a total case load of some1,345 handled by 14 prosecutors or about 96 cases per prosecutor. The burden of this heavy case load per prosecutor is worsened by the fact that they live in extremely cramped accommodation at the second floor See overload, page A11

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you…” (Jesus, our God and Savior, in Matthew 6:33, the Holy Bible). -ooo“SUCCESS OF RIGHTEOUS GOVERNANCE” MERE FIGMENT OF PNOY’S IMAGINATION: have been saying this for a long time, and I will say it again: the claims by President Aquino about the supposed triumph of his “righteous governance” program is but a mere figment of his imagination. This is assessment is not just mine, of course, but shared by many other thinking Filipinos. The truth is greatly contrary to what he has been trumpeting about, here in the Philippines and even internationally. Instead of righteous governance, the Aquino government has only succeeded in strengthening and institutionalizing corrupt officialdom, what with billions and billions of pesos in government fund being pocketed by favored allies, particularly lawmakers who belong to his Liberal Party, and those who kowtow to his wishes no matter how

odious. The system of thievery, though branded by Aquino and his cohorts with highly pompous and righteous sounding names such as “priority development assistance fund” (PDAF) and “disbursement acceleration program” (DAP), had been unmasked by the Supreme Court no less, which called it pure and simple violations of the Constitution. -oooPRESENT SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT IN RP LEADS TO DESTRUCTION: This is the very system that many individuals and groups are now seeking to overthrow. The belief is that, unless the present system of government, the present system of choosing our

officials, and the present crop of political leaders, are changed, our country is headed for inevitable destruction. But how do we go about achieving a change that will really be beneficial to our country and our people? We must not forget that when President Marcos was ousted in 1986, we thought then that the country would already change for the better, with the “dictatorial” government replaced with a “democratic” government. Yet, the whole world saw that those who were installed in place of Marcos did not really want any change in the system of corrupt governance, for what they merely wanted was to change the man at the helm so that they, themselves, would have a chance at enjoying the perks of power. -oooW HAT I S T H E CHANGE THAT WILL BENEFIT RP?: The same thing happened when President Estrada was removed from the presidency. We thought that the leader who replaced him would already bring beneficial change, only to be rebuked roundly once again. Clearly, it is not just

any change that will give our people a new direction in life. The change must be beneficial. Ag ai n , w hat i s t he change that would be beneficial to all? My view is that, it is only a change in the spirituality of our people as a whole, not just of our leaders, that is required, if we are to derive any benefit at all. We must be able to induce Filipinos to return to God, through an honestto-goodness knowledge of His Word and obedience to His commands. It is only when Filipinos would undergo a spiritual rebirth, by being born of God, literally and figuratively, that beneficial change will come to them. If Filipinos will start thinking of the Word of God, living by It, and obeying It all throughout, problems will start solving themselves, and things will change really for the better. -oooREMINDER: For any reaction, comments, or queries, please call 0917 984 24 68, 0918 574 0193 and 092 9833 43 96., mmauriciojr111@

a tree, but the gardener didn’t want to because he said that kind of tree takes almost 100 years to grow big to full maturity. So the French leader said to the gardener: “Then there’s no time to lose. Plant it right now!” The fact is that if we didn’t have deadlines, most of us wouldn’t get much done in life. Deadlines force us to do something before it’s too late and we pay a painful price by suffering the consequences. But think about it, what is the biggest deadline you will ever face? Isn’t it your death? Whether you’re ready or not. The problem is that

none of us knows for sure when it’s coming. We might live another 40 years, or we might just have 2-3 weeks to live. So the only way to live with real peace and happiness is to know for sure that you’re ready to die today. But how can you be ready to die every day? Jesus Christ said the only way is if you know that you’re living every day in a right relationship with your Maker whom you must face at the end of your life. That’s why God Himself, Jesus Christ, came to show us how to live that way. Your decision to love and obey Jesus Christ every day is not just so you

can live with peace and happiness now; it decides where you’re going to live forever after you die: in Heaven or Hell. In complete happiness and peace with your Creator and Christian family, or in total pain and suffering without Him. Jesus Himself said it’s that simple and serious. So for your own sake, today, won’t you ask Jesus to forgive you and take complete charge of your life everyday? Before it’s too late and you’ve missed the biggest deadline of your life.

Davao police will shoot to kill if … D

AVAO City--Police authorities in Davao City will shoot illegal drug traders who will be caught still operating here after the 48-hour ultimatum issued by Mayor Rodrigo R. Duterte that started at 5 p.m. on Monday to criminals to stop the selling of illegal drugs or leave the city.

But Police Regional Office (PRO) 11 spokesperson Supt. Antonio Rivera, speaking during the AFP/PNP press conference Wednesday, clarified that a shoot-to-kill will only be the last resort of the authorities if the criminals will resist arrest. “It will depend on the circumstances being conducted in the case of illegal drugs because there are criminals who fight, which compels the police to shoot to defend his life,” he said. If criminals will continue the selling of illegals drugs despite the 48-hour ultimatum, he said police operations will then be launched. The ultimatum ends at 5 p.m. on Wednesday.

Senior High School: Here it comes

By Meryl R. Alfanta OCSAT, Ozamiz City

K to 12 Basic Education is a system of education in the Philippines that offers efficient strategies which transform Filipinos into people that are college-prepared, employable, and competitive to the global arena. Senior High School program is part of K to 12. It aims to enhance the skills and capabilities of students through providing tracks or specializations created in order to produce graduates that could be good help for a specific community. Senior High School is set to be put into full implementation this June 2016. Schools nationwide has long kicked off the preparations for the enrolment of SHS students in the next school year. The DepEd, in fact, has organized summits to share the good news and benefits of SHS among its stakeholders. It cannot be denied that there are some entities and groups who still are not informed

about Senior High School, and even K to 12 in entirety. There are still people that cannot understand the addition of years unto 10-year education cycle. Thus, since K to 12 has been approved to be implemented, it is important that the Education Department should continue the drive in order for this program to be fully effective. DepEd also conducted series of assemblies and meetings to trainers and teachers and communicate with them to ensure a successful implementation of SHS in the coming June. Education is a challenge. Senior High School is one of the strategies that assist children to overcome the challenge of education. Thus, it is not just the teachers, parents and students who should join hand in hand to succeed SHS but it is everyone’s responsibility. As what DepEd is always saying, “It takes a village to educate a child.”

COMELEC confirms influx of ‘deadline beaters’ for voter registration TANDAG CITY, Surigao del Sur--As October 31, 2015 deadline for voter registration draws near, Atty. Ernie Palanan, provincial election supervisor here, confirmed the influx of people to city and municipal Commission on Election (COMELEC) offices province-wide. He said since October 17, all COMELEC offices at city and municipal levels had been open to welcome registrants for 12 hours daily from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. The COMELEC here had been looking forward to some three percent more or equivalent to 10,950 out of 359,672 registered voters who have yet to undergo biometrics. It was learned that both the municipalities of Lingig and Tagbina, all of District II, had to exert more effort to step up their voter registration campaign, being in the “bottom two” in the list that need to urge the remaining seven and five percent of their respective registered voters to submit for biometrics capturing. On the part of Tandag City

COMELEC office, Atty. Riza Constantino said they had been continuing to experience crowding of registrants as the deadline gets closer. Tandag City, which has a total of 34,674 registered voters, is only looking for about three percent more or equivalent to 915 registered voters who have yet to undergo biometrics capturing in order to post a 100 percent achievement. Bislig City COMELEC chief Alma Acosta for her part said that biometrics capturing in her area, which has the highest number of registered voters at 55,270 provincewide, had been smooth sailing. As of latest update, Bislig has four percent more remaining of its total number of registered voters or equivalent to 1,949 to be subjected for biometrics. However, no city or municipalities here had ever made that perfect registration feat. Surigao del Sur is comprised to two cities and 17 municipalities.

Gov’t offers P1-B fund for climate adaptation projects Editorial: e-mail: • Advertising: e-mail: Contact: 0917-7121424, 0947-8935776

By Catherine J. Teves of PNA

Eligible local government units (LGUs) and community organizations nationwide can already apply for public grants to fund respective proposed climate change adaptation (CCA) projects and programs. Government will draw such grants from the PhP1 billion People’s Survival Fund (PSF) programmed into the national budget to help promote nationwide adaptation to climate change. “We’re ready to receive applications for funding,” Climate Change Commission (CCC) Asst. Sec. Joyceline Goco said Wednesday at PSF’s launch in Metro Manila. LGUs eligible for PSF funding are those with high poverty incidence and exposure to climate risks and which host key biodiversity areas. CCC also said community organizations will be eligible to access the fund upon accreditation based on organizational

independence, financial management, participatory practices as well as track record and/or field of expertise. Goco noted each application must identify the CCA project or program proposed to be undertaken and funding needed for this. “There’s no cap for the proposed funding but the actual grant can be either lower or higher than this target amount depending on results of our evaluation,” she said. Applications can be filed anytime as PSF will be an annual allocation to be sourced from the national budget, she noted. Php 1 billion will be the minimum PSF to be programmed annually in such budget but Congress can increase this fund if the need arises. If PSF funding for a particular year hasn’t been fully consumed, Goco said this could still be accessed in the future. PSF can even be augmented by various sectors’

donations,endowments, grants and contributions so more CCA funds can be available nationwide, she said. In 2012, government enacted RA 10174 which established PSF as a special fund in the national treasury as experts warned the Philippines is among countries most at risk for climate change’s impacts. Such impacts are increasing onslaught of extreme weather events as well as sea level and temperature rise, they noted. “Climate change is happening and will affect everyone especially the most vulnerable in our country,” Goco said. She noted government didn’t rush PSF’s launch, opting to first establish mechanisms for transparent disbursement and use of the fund. CCA measures aim at building up communities’ resilience to the changing climate so PSF must not be wasted, she said. Among CCA undertakings eligible for PSF funding are those

that promote use of flood-tolerant crops, improve coastal flood protection and help drainage systems cope with severe rain. PSF can also be for forecasting and early warning systems and serve as guarantee for risk insurance needs of farmers and other stakeholders. Interested parties can secure application forms and templates from PSF’s website then submit these and other required documents to CCC which serves as PSF’s Secretariat. A technical evaluation committee will review the applications to determine feasibility of the proposed projects and programs. “Such proposals must truly promote CCA and be aligned with the country’s development and climate policies,” Goco said. The committee will present its corresponding recommendations to the PSF Board so this body can make the final decision on the applications. CCC, Department of Budget and Management, National Eco-

nomic and Development Authority, Department of Interior and Local Government, Philippine Commission for Women and a non-government representative comprise the PSF Board under Department of Finance. “Release of the fund will be in tranches,” said Goco. She also noted the PSF Board and its partners will monitor implementation and outcome of the approved projects and programs. “Flawed implementation will disqualify proponents concerned from seeking PSF funds in the future,” she warned. The Board reported already receiving some 13 proposals for PSF funding even before the launch. Such proposals mostly cover flood control, agriculture and water in Mindanao and collectively seek funding exceeding Php 1 billion, the Board noted. Those proposals are still subject to evaluation, however, the Board added.

Aggie dept. to deploy fishery enforcers in key fishing areas THE national government will prioritize the country’s major fishing grounds, including tuna-rich waters, for its enhanced enforcement operations against illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing activities. Asis Perez, Department of Agriculture undersecretary for fisheries, said they are currently working on the deployment of fishery enforcers in key fishing areas to facilitate the rollout of fresh regulations that were set in Republic Act (RA) 10654. RA 10654, or the “Act to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing,” amended RA 8550 or the Philippine Fisheries Code of 1998. The measure, which lapsed into law last February, mainly sets stricter policies and regulations to effectively curb IUU fishing as well as hefty penalties for violators. Perez said the enforcement operations will initially focus on the tuna-rich waters off the Surigao provinces and parts of the Moro Gulf, Celebes Sea, Basilan-SuluTawi-tawi seas, Benham Rise as well as the West

Philippine Sea. He said it will later cover the sardine and herring fishing areas off the Zamboanga Peninsula and the Davao Gulf. “These are our top priorities in terms of conservation, development and protection,” he said in a briefing on Tuesday on the implementing rules and regulations of RA 10654 that officially became effective last October 10. The briefing was among the highlights of the national media conference hosted by the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) at the City Garden Suites in Ermita, Manila. Perez, who is also national director of BFAR, said they included the Benham Rise, which is located in the country’s eastern seaboard, in the priority enforcement areas to curb the rampant illegal fishing activities there. Citing satellite images, he said they detected extensive fishing activities in the area by foreign fishermen. “Our vessels and enforcers are now ready to patrol

these areas and reclaim them for our own fishermen,” he said. Lawyer Benjamin Tabios Jr., BFAR assistant national director, said the enforcement operations will involve their 85 patrol vessels. He said 71 of these are 30-footer patrol boats while 16 are 11-meter and 30-meter monitoring, control and surveillance vessels. “We will be augmenting these with 27 new 42-footers that are due for delivery next year,” he told MindaNews. The official said the agency will also acquire 10 new 50-footers and two 50-meter vessels. Tabios said some 290 enforcers have already completed their training, which covered 90 days for the basic course, 30 days for boat operations and 15 days for specialized courses. He said they are set to hire more enforcers to complete their manpower target of 600. “The hiring and training process is very stringent as these enforcers will eventually carry guns in their assignments,” he added. mindanews

Plastic garbage threatens Tubbataha Reefs in Palawan By Keith Anthony S. Fabro of PNA

PUERTO Princesa City–– Plastic water bottles and food containers disposed in the ocean by residents are threatening to slay the fragile marine wildlife that dwells in the World Heritage Site Tubbataha Reefs Natural Marine Park (TRNMP), according to its management office.

Angelique Songco, head of the Tubbataha Management Office (TMO), said if people will not stop buying water and food in plastic bottles and containers, and throwing them into the ocean, the marine wildlife will ingest them, thinking they are food. Eventually, the marine

wildlife will be killed because plastics are indigestible, she stated. Marine animals also get entangled in them, causing them to have wounds and die. Songco explained that around 90 percent of marine wastes that end up in the world-famous marine See GARBAGE, page A11

God wants you to leave good legacy The Gospel of Jesus Christ (October30, 2015-Friday) Mark 12:18-27- If a man’s brother die, and leave [his] wife [behind him], and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed. And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise. And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of

a great reason for you to do. Do the right things consistently because this is the absolute key to inherit the kingdom of the living God. From this earth you will be raised to heaven if God can see that you are ready and prepared very well. The reason why you are living too long on this earth is not an accident but he has a purposed for you to repent and change. God doesn’t want to lose you after this life. He wants you to be with him

all the woman died also. In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife. And Jesus answering said unto them, do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God? You are just living temporary and soon; you will go to eternity. Before it happens, have a constant training on how to be saved. Your daily existence is given to you for

in eternal life without end. Use your time exactly and wisely because every day is a new day for you to do the will of the living God. He wants you to do a certain thing with a big love. He wants you to connect to him by calling him always. The more you are connected to God; the more you have the big chance to be with him in Paradise. Ephesians 5:15-16”Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time,

because the days are evil. Spend your life with a great accomplishment in life. Consume your life for the welfare of others. Look at a pencil; although it is consumed when it is used but it has a legacy to leave forever.

TEACHING: The Noblest of All Profession By ARNIEL DELA VEGA MANILI Teacher – I Ozamiz City School of Arts and Trades Maningcol, Ozamiz City

“Always strive for excellence “ is a challenge always mentioned to us by our Big Bosses in the Department of Education. Teachers are encouraged to not just concentrate on teaching but go into research and community extension as well. But the main reason why I

am into teaching is not promotion but molding the minds of the youth entrusted to my care. The greatest experience I had as a teacher is being with my students from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm. You will really feel the challenge of becoming their second parent. I then realized the teaching and learning is a mutual process. Your students learn from you and on the other hand you will learn from the students. This is the best ministry of teaching minds, touching

hearts and transforming lives of the students. With this experience I said to myself “ to become an effective teacher you must put yourself in the shoes of your students; talk like them, eat like them, laugh with them, …… if you cannot bring your students to your world, you go into their world and enjoy the experience”. Teachers, let us continue to inspire others. Let us continue to be a blessing to everyone.

Empowering IPs through CARD’s learning journey CARD-MRI Development Institute, Inc., now a tertiary education institute of CARD Mutually Reinforcing Institutions (CARD MRI), recently conducted a three-day Lakbay-Aral for 25 indigenous people from Mindanao. All are members of Center for Agriculture and Rural Development (CARD), Inc. The participants in the said Lakbay Aral enjoyed their exposure to different historical places in Laguna, including the city attractions in San Pablo City through the Hijos de San Pablo Tour Program and Bahay ni Rizal in

Calamba City. They also visited CARD unit offices as well as successful CARD members. These avenues provided them a chance to mingle with other clients of CARD, giving them a more concrete idea of the institutions’ undertakings. “We are happy to share with them the different cultures and places. It was also fulfilling to learn their culture deeper. We hope to do more of this and achieve our goals of reaching out to more IPs,” Christian Sandoval, Deputy Director for Training in Mindanao stated. Lakbay-Aral or Learning

Journey is one of the services being offered to CARD members who perform well in their center. Initially, those who were invited are center chiefs as part of their incentive for helping the institution in handling and organizing the center composed of about 30 members. With positive feedbacks and results when it was first conducted in 2004, it is now offered to center secretaries, center treasurers, and members and most especially to indigenous members. Specific Lakbay Arals are also conducted to join the spouses of the members. Every year, CMDI handles Lakbay Aral for CARD members belonging to Indigenous communities composed of an average of 25 participants per tour. CARD plans to increase it in the coming years. “Kurang da ke peselemat dey dut ta langun na kepianan na imbehay te CARD kanami. Ke ked era te diplanu ne seveka ra du te neuhat ne pagingawa dey na untaani nakaunteng key un. Netuonan dey ka role te CARD sa pag-aangat ng antas ng pamumuhay ng mga Pilipino.

(“Thank you is not enough to express our gratitude to CARD. Taking a plane is just a dream; now it became a reality. We know a lot about CARD and its role in uplifting the lives of Filipinos. We are so privileged that we saw how eager CARD wants to help the underserved communities,”shared by Merly R. Manguason , a member from Carmen Unit in her own language.)

Through this orientation on Cultural Sensitivity, we will be able to appreciate more the role of our IP brothers and sisters in maintaining sustainably of a community. Practically, as we constantly gain additional knowledge, the more we will be guided and be more capable in providing timely, accurate and relevant information in the context of IP.” Also, Datu Payad Sangkuan expressed that he and his co-lumads are pleased to work with PIA Caraga on the said activity for a common cause since they also believe that the agency is the main source of information along with the media. “While we have the rights, we also have the responsibility to help maintain peace and order for the development within IP community,” underscored Datu Payad Sangkuan. Meanwhile, PIA Caraga deputy regional director Fryan Abkilan recognized the efforts of the AFICC and the Sulong Katutubo Incorporated for partnering with PIA in the said activity and assured that the agency will be more sensitive on its informationdissemination especially on IP-related news.

According to, “Once in the ocean, it can take thousands of years for each individual piece of plastic waste to break down, and when it does, it simply pulls apart into millions of very small fragments of plastic – it never ‘disappears.’” Hundreds of TRNMP’s marine species are said to be at risk of the impacts of marine debris. The park is home to no less than 600 species of fish, 360 species of corals (about half of all coral species in the world), 11 species of sharks, 13 species of dolphins and whales and 100 species of birds. It also serves as nesting ground to Hawksbill and Green sea turtles. TRNP is a 97,030-hectare Marine Protected Area (MPA) located 150 km southeast of Puerto Princesa City, lying at the heart of the Coral Triangle, the global centre of marine biodiversity. “It’s very sad, because Tubbataha is so isolated but there are instances when we go snorkeling and we see plastic bags and bottled waters in the corals,” Songco added.

He gave the orders that any budgetary deficiency of the prosecutors office may be taken from the office of the Governor. Gov.

Gracia’s Diner and Grill now open in uptown CDO

Story and Photos by MARK FRANCISCO Lifestyle Editor

GRACIA’s Diner, the longrenowned caterer and canteen concessionaire in Cagayan de Oro and neighboring places, has finally opened its own casual dining joint at uptown Cagayan de Oro particularly at Masterson’s Avenue. Geo Calulo, restaurant consultant, said Gracia’s Diner will be bringing the same quality and yummy taste of food found in their concessionaire canteens since 1983 in their new showcase home smacked in the middle of several gated subdivisions. Gracia’s Diner also offers short orders such as buffalo chicken wings, sinuglaw, chicken teriyaki and their bestseller beef with mashed potato. They retain their house specials pork barbecue, grilled tuna belly and grilled tanguigue. Gracia’s Diner started as a mere eatery at PabayoChavez in 1983. Soon word of mouth spread about their mouth-watering tastes that the business evolved itself into a canteen concessionaire. The list of clients is impressive – Del Monte, Cepalco, Concentrix, Philippine Sinter Corporation, Coca-cola FEMSA. Now Gracia’s Diner is serving the students, faculty, parents and guardians of Xavier University Grade School and Xavier University High School, employees of nearby commercial establishments and of course, residents of Morning Mist, PhilAm Village, Xavier Estates, Camella, Golden Glow North and Xavier Heights. “They come here and patronize us because we are affordably priced and they get value for their money. Our utmost priority is total satisfaction of our guests,” Calulo quipped. Don’t just read, get a taste yourself of the wide array of dishes available at Gracia’s Diner.
