Finalists for ‘Gawad Saka’ named

VILLANUEVA, Misamis Oriental – The chief executive of one of the largest carbon companies in the world is confident that the opening of its new coconut-based plant in the Philippines will help boost the company’s sales and export standings within the industry.

By CRIS DIAZ Executive Editor

MISAMIS Oriental––The provincial government of Misamis Oriental on Tuesday released the finalists to national ‘Gawad Saka” awards in the categories of fisheries and agriculture this year. In a statement, the provincial capitol named a component city and two towns, two individuals, an extension worker, and a family who would represent the province in the national competition. The awards went to the Catiil Family, a resident of El Salvador City, for Organic Farming, Sarah Abella, in the agricultural extension work, of the town of Opol. Each received a plaque of appreciation.

City scholars have one sem to ‘make or break’ By CRIS DIAZ Executive Editor

CAGAYAN de Oro City–– The beneficiaries of the City College Scholarship Program (CCSP) here would have only one semester to make up when “on probation,” a City Councilor said.

Bring out the elegance that soothes ones’ heart. Purify the substance that shines throughout a lifetime. Feel the fulfillment of hard work when you reward it with the brand of success.

City Councilor Adrian Barba, chair of the city council committee on education, said that “on probation” (OP) means that the scholar has a general average lower than the CCSP required. Barba said he has also reminded the city’s 610 scholars of the requirement

during a general assembly of the city’s scholars in early September this year. “We have lowered the general average from 85 percent to 80 percent. There is no reason that the city scholar would not study hard and strive See BREAK, page A11

KORONADAL City––An international peace group has revealed that businesses in Eastern Mindanao alone, a region with a strong mining industry, have allegedly lost at least P1.3 billion in “revolutionary taxes” to communist rebels last year. International Alert, citing confidential sources, disclosed the figure on Saturday on the heels of the group’s call for the government to restart peace talks with the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) to avoid further economic as well as human losses. Judy Gulane, International Alert Philippines communication specialist, said: “We continue to work with the UP (University of the Philippines) School of Economics in coming up with an estimate of the

economic cost of the communist insurgency, then we will present this to the government,” she said. In Davao City last week, International Alert called on the government to quickly reopen peace negotiations with the National Democratic Front of the Philippines, CCP’s political wing, noting that businesses and local government units caught in the conflict have reported mounting economic and human losses. “The government, together with those sectors directly affected by the conflict should work hand in hand to end the communist insurgency at the soonest possible time,” Francisco J. Lara Jr., country manager of International Alert, said in a statement. See taxes, page A11

UNAHCO partners with Agrilink to boost PH agribusiness growth Univet Nutrition and Animal Healthcare Company (UNAHCO), the agribusiness subsidiary of pharmaceutical leader Unilab, once again headlines the list of major sponsors for this year’s Agrilink, Foodlink, and Aqualink Exhibition set on October 15 to 17, 2015 at the World Trade Center. UNAHCO President and Chief Operating Officer Ricardo C. Alba said UNAHCO believes in the mission of the Foundation for Resource Linkage and Development (FRLD), organizer of Agrilink, to bring together all stakeholders in the agriculture industry to facilitate transfer of knowledge and technology and establish linkages. He said Agrilink is an excellent venue to learn about the latest trends and practices, innovative products and modern technologies in animal production and agriculture so animal raisers and farmers may improve their farm operations, productivity and profitability.

“We want to be a catalyst of knowledge and technology transfer to help uplift the animal and agriculture industries and at the same time promote food safety and security for our country,” Mr. Alba said. “Specifically, UNAHCO is helping Agrilink promote the event to entice more people to attend the exhibition and become aware that there is a huge potential, an excellent business op-

portunity, in agribusiness,” he added. For the past 17 years, UNAHCO has been sponsoring Agrilink, the country’s biggest agribusiness exhibition, through its business units such as Univet, Pigrolac Premium Hog Feeds, Sarimanok Poultry Feeds, UNAHCO Commercial Farm Group (CFG), and UNAGRO (Univet Agronomy). This year, Yum Yum,

UNAHCO’s newly launched dog food brand in the market, will also be part of the exhibition. Yum Yum will have a Dog Café in the afternoon of Saturday, October 17, at the World Trade Center lobby where dog

lovers will get the chance to meet and interact with different dog breeds. Another reason for UNAHCO’s bullish participation in industry events like Agrilink is the company’s 50th year founding

anniversary in 2016. “We have been serving the Filipino animal raisers for almost 50 years now and we are truly grateful to our loyal customers and partners for their continuing See unahco, page A11

Largest coco carbon facility opens in Misor Bukidnon • Camiguin • Lanao del Norte • Lanao del Sur • Misamis Occidental • Misamis Oriental

By MARK FRANCISCO Staff member

VILLANUEVA, Misamis Oriental – The chief executive of one of the largest carbon companies in the world is confident that the opening of its new coconut-based plant in the Philippines will help boost the company’s sales and export standings within the industry. In an interview on the sidelights of the inauguration of the plant located at the sprawling Phividec Industrial Estate some 40 minutes east of Cagayan de Oro, Jacobi Carbons AB

chief executive officer Anders Skeini said that they are expecting to produce 20,000 metric tons of granulized charcoal for export. Touted to be the largest coco-based carbon plant in the world, the Jacobi facility in this town of 20,000 people will also help boost employment and benefits to more than a thousand people. “This facility, with its size and sophistication, represents the state-of-theart in carbon activation technology, and will give us greater flexibility to assure a consistent supply of high

quality activated carbons for our customers,” Mr. Skeini continued. It’s not just the officials of the Jacobi Carbons AB who are overjoyed. An official of the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA), which supervises Phividec Industrial Estate, said the entry of Jacobi Carbons AB in the Philippine market will boost the overall status of economic zones in the country. Sansaluna A. Pinagayao, Visayas-Mindanao zone administrator of PEZA, said that the US$563 billion

I remembered my article “The September 2015,” June 10, 2015, Mindanao Daily News, about the gathering of world leaders in the United States of America (USA) to address a common agenda. With over 250 readers who followed the article, today, I am thinking out loud. Pope Francis was invited and, in fact, already went to the US last week. The Holy Father would be the first Pope to address a joint session of the US Congress on September 24, 2015.” Jo h n B o e h n e r, t h e Speaker of the House Representatives, said that the Holy Father’s “historic visit” would make Pope Francis as the “first leader of the Holy See to address a joint meeting of Congress.” The Official Vatican Network has quoted Boehner: “That in a time of global upheaval, the Holy Father’s message of compassion and human dignity has moved people of all faiths and backgrounds. His teachings, prayers, and very example bring us back to the blessings of simple things and our obligations to one another.” (Underscoring mine). Matter of fact, as I wrote this article, Pope Francis is now on his three-day apostolic visit in Cuba that started on September 19, 2015 and would end on

The CYNOSURE

Cris Diaz

September 22, 2015. One of the missions of the Holy Father in Cuba is to “build bridges” between Cuba and the USA with the hope that the two countries attained reconciliation. Anyway, what makes me interested is the real intention of the Pope’s visit in the US. The fact that, for the first time, he was invited to address the US Congress’ joint session is something uncommon. Thus, I have underscored the phrase, “in a time of global upheaval,” in the statement of the Speaker of the House, a very enigmatic phrase. What does it really mean? In the article on June 10, 2015, the discussion about the dangers lurking, between September 25 until September 30, 2015 was in passing. The article was about the confirmation by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration

(NASA) about the 2.5 miles “comet” that is heading toward planet Earth. Unless, thwarted or diverted from its current “space path,” the Comet will hit portion of South America, probably in Peru. It would be three days from today before the expected D-Day. The impact of the Comet on Earth would equal to millions of millions of the Trinitrotoluene (TNT) explosives – perhaps, enough to erase South America in the face of the planet. The impact would also change the world climate overnight with earthquakes, tsunamis, storms, typhoons, and flood occurring around the world. The countries near oceans and seas (that includes the Philippines) would be greatly affected by the climatic upheaval. While scientists did not say that the world is coming to an end, the residues of the impact might gather dusts and particles that would certainly affect the Earth’s atmosphere. It means, the changes of the climatic seasons, the sun would not be able to effectively radiate its energy in planet Earth, which would lead to the extinction of some species. Although there were thousands of predictions about the end of the world (most of them related to the second coming of Christ),

this time is for real. However, while NASA has announced the confirmation, the US did not make a fuss about it. Otherwise, a worldwide chaos, just as what happened about the predicted “Millennium Apocalypse” circa 1000. Pope Sylvester II or Silvester II, was Pope from April 2, 999 until his death in 1003. Silvester II announced a prediction that the end of the world would take place in the year 1000. On January 1, 1000, riot erupted in Europe and pilgrims headed east to Jerusalem. The end of the world did not take place then. However, the impact of fears among the people in Europe leaves scars of anarchy, death, pillage, and plunder of the fledgling civilization then. Perhaps, the US has summoned Pope Francis and all important world leaders this September to downplay the issue while adopting a high sense of alertness in preparation of the impact. I do not want to be alarmist, lest I would be accused of being a doomsayer. However, nothing is comforting than praying that the people on Earth would be safe and be triumphant against all the ordeals ahead.–Send comments/reaction: crisguardian@yahoo.com

the court’s verdict putting them to jail. That’s where they rightly belong based on how they maltreated us, how they abused us. Are the Filipino people just being naïve or are we just being very forgiving to our own fault? To forgive is divine. No doubt about that. But forgiveness should not be granted wholesale without any condition. If God himself puts condition to our being forgiven by him, how much more for us. We should not forget that up to this writing no Marcos has even acknowledged the wrongdoings they have done to the Filipino people during the dark years of martial rule. In fact, they are nurturing the thought, which they want us to embrace, that what happened during those dark years of our country’s history were in reality the best that every Filipino could hope for. And as far as they are concerned, what is there to apologize for? Thus until

now they are not apologizing to the nation but instead, they want the Filipino people to return them to Malacanang because their patriarch’s ejection from the presidential palace in 1986 was most evil. And there are still Marcos loyalists who swallow this argument hook, line and sinker. The Marcos adherents among martial law babies are even alarmingly increasing. If it is increasing, blame it on their elders who miserably failed to teach them of the evils that befell this country during the reign of Marcos. This is where we still need to mature. We have to know our history and learn lessons from them. We are not learning lessons from history because we are not teaching history to the younger generation of Filipinos. We allow them to have their own understanding of history. And look now how they readily accept the fallacious political

Butuan university to host peace confab for academics

B

UTUAN question of peace. Rev. Father Randy City–– Jasper Odchigue, Father Caraga Saturnino Urios University vice president for Acregion’s top uniAffairs and chair versity will host a ademic of the conference, said peace conference the Creating Spaces for Peace in Mindanao Conamong schools ference will take place on and universities No. 25 and they expect across the counaround 500 participants. “We came up with the try to get peridea since we felt that the spectives from university has its responscholars and aca- sibility in contributing demicians on the towards peace building and conflict transforma-

tion,” he explained. He noted that there have been many peace summits and conferences organized by nongovernment organizations and government bodies but only a few that were academic in nature. “Our activity’s goal here is to explore frameworks on how to move forward and look for better alternatives and possibilities that would help promote peace from the perspective of the academe,” Odchigue said.

“The schedule of the event also coincides with the Mindanao Week of Peace. Before, the rule of the university was to serve as support to the diocese on the week of peace activity but now we felt that we can also do something bigger as an academe, so we came up with this conference,” he said. “As far as we know, there have not been enough venues for discussions or scholarly study on the academe

perspective on peace, so I hope this event would shed a different light on the issues covering conflict especially here in Mindanao,” said Rev. Father John Christian Young, FSUU president. “This academic conference is also inviting scholars from all over the Philippines to present papers on peace covering the entirety of it aspects,” Young said. He said the conference will tackle topics ranging from resource-

based conflicts to the Bangsamoro question as well as, culture and interreligious dialogue. He added the event is significant given the conflicts all over Mindanao including Caraga region. The conference keynote speakers are Jurgette Honculada, a former member of the GPH peace panel in talks with the NDF, and book author and anthropologist Brother Karl Gaspar, CSsR.

SLP program participants in Tiniwisan, BXU open General Merchandise business Butuan City – Through the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), some 111 Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program partner beneficiaries in Brgy.Tiniwisan, this city have inaugurated today their General Merchandise livelihood project. Attending the said activity are the program participants, the barangay local government unit (BLGU) headed by Hon. Demetrio E. Tableon, information officer Claire Pantoja of SLP, and the regional program management office (RPMO) led by program coordinator Roy Serdeña. The said 111 Pantawid Pamilya partner-beneficiaries comprise the five (5) SEA-K associations. The participants decided to merge each of their Php10,000 capital seed funds provided by SLP to put up a General Merchandise. Since Tiniwisan is a distant barangay from the city proper, access to basic commodities and other supplies have been inconvenient and costly for the residents. This inspired the program participants to realize this

livelihood project, given that the site is strategic and the project is seen practical and feasible. Through the SEAK fund, financial assistance and logistic support from the BLGU, and initiatives of the members, the efficient implementation of the project has been carried out. During the construction of the building, the federation members had “bayanihan” or voluntary service. They extended help without expecting anything in return. Rowena “Weng” Narzabal, SEA-K Federation chairman and a Pantawid Pamilya parent leader, shares her joy after receiving the grants. “Dako akong kalipay ug pasalamat sa tabang na

nahatag sa gobyerno labi na sa SLP na naghatag ug capital aron makatukod mi ug negosyo (I am deeply grateful and glad with the government’s help especially to the SLP which provided us with capital so that we would be able put up a business),” says Weng. A noteworthy support of the BLGU is also felt by the program participants. Through the BLGU, an area for the General Merchandise was provided. Hon. Demetrio E. Tabelon, punong barangay of Brgy.Tiniwisan, shares that the construction of the General Merchandise is a stepping stone to alleviate poverty and improve the socio-economic well- being of the residents of the said

village. “A ko d i l i magdu ha duha sa pagtabang sa mga proyekto sama ani ug gihangyo nako na maghiusa ug magtinabangay ta tanan sa pagpalambo niini (With no doubt, I am willing to continually be part with projects like this and I am asking everyone to unite and help in cultivating this project),” he expressed. Through its partners Ralav Corp and Cantilan Bank, the federation was provided an orientation on Store Management and Financial Literacy. Further, the group has also coordinated with various regional distributors that could provide goods with discounts like Nestle, See SLP, page A11

Retail store gets SSS Balikat ng Bayan Award By Carina L. Cayon

DAVAO CITY – The Social Security System of the Southern Mindanao Division recently honored a leading retail store of school and office supplies in the city for religiously complying with the obligations of an SSS employer-member to its employees. SSS conferred the Top Employer Award on GH Office Depot during Friday’s 2015 SSS Balikat ng Bayan Awarding Ceremony at the Ritz Hotel in Davao City. Emmanuel R. Palma, SSS assistant vice president for Southern Mindanao, said that GH Office Depot was selected as the sole regional awardee after being evaluated to have been outstanding in conforming to the rules and regulations of providing social protection to its employees. Palma said that among the requirements under the SSS rules are for the employers to report all employees for SSS coverage, whether permanent, casual and contractual, and to pay up to date contributions. The awardee has also been fulfilling other SSS mandates such as advancing SS and Employees Compensation (EC) sickness benefits and maternity benefits due to his/her employees,

Do not give up your faith The Gospel of Jesus C hrist ( S e p t e m b e r 2 3 , 2015- Wednesday) Mark 10:2831”Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee. And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s, But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this

time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life: Ephesians 6:8”Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether [he be] bond or free. This is the consoling statements of Jesus Christ to His disciples that all of them will receive rewards for following Him. Like Paul attested of

his rewards for sacrificing in preaching the words of God. 2 Timothy 4:6-8”For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good “fight,” I have finished [my] course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his ap-

pearing. Can you die for God’s glory? Take note, martyrdom is the shortest way to heaven. Your attitude is tested if you will choose God or to deny him in times of pressures. You need to love him more than anything else. You need to prioritize God because he will care everything for your favors. Matthew 6:33”But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Allow yourself to be in

he stated. “There’s no better benefit to give to your employees than to provide social security protection. The workers are assured that they will have protection when they get old,” Palma said, urging employers to be responsible and be concerned to the welfare of their workers. GH Office Depot manager Paul Go said they were very grateful for the award, adding “We are happy that we are part of the government’s program benefiting the employees.” “From the start of our operations, we have been abiding by the mandates of the law,” stated GH Office Depot human resource officer Romeo Rivas, as he cited that the company is consciously and religiously paying monthly contributions to SSS. According to its website, GH Office Depot started as a small office stationery dealer in 1967, and opened a supermarket-type of stationery store in 1995. The retail outlet has continued to grow and expand, and is now serving not only walk-in clients but also big establishments from the private and government See SSS, page A11

propaganda that the Marcoses are the nation’s saviors. At this point, the elders of this nation should seriously take the responsibility of teaching the younger generation the lessons of history. We can’t afford to continuously commit the same errors as a people. We will all end up in suffering and misery because of our inability, failure or even refusal to learn lessons from our very own history. This is where the Israelites are very good at. They never confine in the dustbin of history their past especially that moment when God directly intervened to liberate them from slavery in Egypt. Would you believe that until now their Exodus story from Egypt to the Promised Land is being retold and retold to every Jewish generation to always make them understand and thus embrace their very own story as a nation? Sadly, we refuse to learn any lesson from our own story as a nation. Just look at the number of Filipinos patronizing the very beautiful movie Heneral Luna. Movie houses are even contemplating of replacing this movie with another one for lack of patrons watching it. But if only every Filipino will watch it, you will appreciate more your being a Filipino and thus join the fray in clapping your hands at the end of the movie. But why are we not watching this very significant movie to our life as a people, as Filipinos? Ironically, however, almost every Filipino is eagerly awaiting to watch every episode of that kalyeserye, which is just a segment of the popular noontime show Eat Bulaga. Truth is no lesson can ever be learned from this kalyeserye. True to its title, it is just a kalye story that many of us eagerly watch the moment that segment is shown. Is this how callous we have become? (React at jelbacon@yahoo.com or at jelbaconii@ gmail.com. Read me also at www.raconteurme.blogspot. com)

to meet the lower average requirement,” Barba said. He said that a city scholar who has failed to meet the 80 percent general average would be allowed a “one semester” on probation in order to make up for the next semester or the scholarship would be forfeited. Barba said that the city government spent PHP 704, 500 for the monthly allowances for the city’s 610 scholars for the first semester of the school year 2015-2016. He said that PHP 1,000 is granted to each scholar residing in the city’s urbanrural villages while those residing in the hinterland

villages that include Bugo, Puerto, Agusan, Tabon and Lumbia are receiving a monthly PHP 1,500. Other villages extend an additional PHP 500.00 monthly allowances from the village’s coffers. “These scholars are also required to render 52-hour of voluntary services to their respective barangays during their free time within the school year,” Barba said. According to Barba, 113 city’s scholars are expected to graduate by the end of the school year 2016 while 173 students are now in their first year, 210 in 2nd year, 110 in 3rd year, 118 in 4th year, and 8 students are in their 5th year.

By focusing attention on the impact of the communist insurgency on business and local communities, International Alert said it hopes the government will exert more vigor and urgency in reviving talks with the communist rebels.

This should be pursued even as the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front had struck a political settlement, he added. Lara said the communist insurgency in the country, considered as the longest running communist insurgency in Asia, is exacting a higher toll than the Moro rebellion. The communist rebellion ran longer and is affecting more provinces in the country, he said, stressing that in Mindanao, “it is a scourge in the Caraga Region, the Davao provinces and Compostela Valley.” “Companies in these provinces are forced to pay millions in “revolutionary taxes” and have seen many of their facilities and equipment destroyed,” Lara said. He added that “local governments cannot attract investments and tourists that should have boosted the local economy,” apparently due to the security risk posed by the communist insurgency.

That is why we are aggressively exploring other agriculture-related businesses to complete our seed to feed, feed to food value chain,” he added.

These are Univet, Thunderbird Feeds, Pigrolac Feeds, Sarimanok Poultry Feeds, CFG or Commercial Farm Group, Doggiessentials (Nutrience, Yum Yum, Bubblebath), Food Solutions, Goat Dairy Farm, UAD (United Agrivet Distribution), UNAGRO, UNAHCO International (export business), and Aquapro (aqua feeds). This year’s Agrilink is scheduled from October 15 to 17, 2015 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City. It will be held alongside the 16th International Food Pro cessing, Packaging and Products Exhibition or Foodlink, and the 11th National Fisheries Exhibitions and Seminars of Aqualink. Agrilink 2015 has for its theme “Regional Agribusiness Development as a Strategy for Inclusive Growth.” FRLD President Antonio V. Roces said Agrilink 2015 will specifically highlight corn production in Region-2 or Cagayan Valley which includes the province of Isabela, currently the Philippines’s top corn producer and also the second biggest rice producer.
