Solon urges CHED to allocate funds for MUST CAGAYAN de Oro City––A Congressman in Cagayan de Oro City urged the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) to release the P50 million annual appropriation for the Mindanao University of Science and Technology (MUST) here. Rep. Rufus B. Rodriguez, 2nd District, Cagayan De Oro City, said that Republic Act 9519 has converted

erstwhile Mindanao Polytechnic State College in Cagayan de Oro City into a state university known as MUST. He said that an appropriation of P50 million, in addition to the regular fund of the state university under the general appropriation act, has been approved for MUST operations for a period of five years after R.A. 9519 were approved in Jan. 7, 2009.

The fund was needed for MUST, one of the country’s 14 state universities that had attained Level 1V, the highest a state university or college could attain, where future scientists and inventors are trained to possibly propel the country’s economic development and growth. MUST be a leading university with two academic programs recognized

as a Center of Development (COD) in the field of mathematics and Electrical Engineering and seven other Level 111 accredited programs, Rodriguez added. He said that CHED has not made any recommendation with the general appropriation act to allocate the P50 million fund for MUST for the year 2011, 2012, and 2013 in which

were reported missing several days after Pablo hit landfall in Davao Oriental that also left more than 1,000 dead. Of the listed missing fishermen from 51 fishing vessels from at least 10 fishing companies here that were caught in the middle of the storm, 18 were found alive while 8 dead bodies were recovered. Four of the fishing vessels were confirmed by sur vivors to have sunk at the height of Typhoon Pablo. Only last week, Segovia refrained from issuing a statement on the fate of the missing fishermen. “It is a sensitive issue, especially for the families (of the

victims),” he reasoned out. At least three Philippine Navy ships and two floating assets of the Philippine Coast Guard were involved in the search and rescue mission. A P-3C Orion maritime surveillance aircraft from the United States Navy was also dispatched to the area to help search for more survivors. The operations, however, failed to recover any survivor other than those rescued by passing fishing vessels early in the tragedy. Some relatives are hoping the fishermen are still alive. Ana Lou Caspi-Nemenio, whose father is the ship captain of a catcher ves-

sel of the Salazar-owned Thidcor fishing company, said she received reports that the crew of two of his father’s light boats were found in a state of shock while riding a bus somewhere between Leyte and Surigao. But she could not verify the report. Owners of the fishing vessels are still giving cash advances to the families of the missing fishermen. But one fishing company has reportedly offered a cash assistance of P50,000 in exchange of a waiver and quit claim. Rosanna C ontreras, executive director of Soccsksargen Federation of Fishing and Allied Industry (SFFAI), however, said she has not received any information about the reported cash assistance. SFFAI is handling all cash advances of families of the missing fishermen. SFFAI said the Pablo tragedy was a big blow to the tuna industry, adding that the lost fishing vessels valued up to P640 million. (Edwin Espejo / MindaNews contributor)

Segovia was accompanied by Mayor Darlene Antonino-Custodio, who said the city has to move on. Custodio said the city will be giving assistance to families of the missing fishermen as they recover from the loss of their loved ones. At least 378 fishermen

JV: Lower power supply will hurt Mindanao business SAN Juan Rep. JV Ejercito Estrada warned that the reduction of power supply to areas in Mindanao could cripple manufacturers and other local business establishments in the region. Ejercito Estrada made the statement following reports that Zamboanga City will soon experience three-hour brownouts due to the decision of state-run National Power Corp. (Napocor) to reduce power supply in the city by 10 megawatts (MW). Other areas in Mindanao may soon suffer the same fate as power supply in the region was cut by 189 MW as of Jan. 10, according to the National Grid of Corp. of the Philippines. “Power outages will lower the productivity of local businesses and harm Mindanao’s economy. These power outages are definitely an injustice to businessmen and consumers alike,” the young lawmaker said. Ejercito Estrada echoed the fear of Mindanao businessmen that the power situation in the entire region could get worse when sardines manufacturers

resume full operations in March following the lifting of a three-month ban on sardines fishing imposed by the government in the Zamboanga Peninsula. “Mindanaoans are now reeling from the failure of the government to act on the power crisis two years ago, when the problem was easier to solve. The government wasted precious time,” he said. The San Juan solon reiterated his call for the immediate rehabilitation of the Agus Pulangi facility which supplies more than half of Mindanao’s power supply. The two hydro dams are currently producing only 635 MW of its 982 MW capacity due to the heavily-silted rivers of the facility.#

IBP sets 40th year national confab in Davao City

By Marlon T. Gayog

DAVAO CITY, Philippines – More than 3,500 lawyers from different parts of the country will arrive in this premier city for the 14th national convention and 40th anniversary of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) on 17 to 19 of January at the SMX convention center in SM Lanang. Carlos Isagani Zarate, former president of IBP Davao Chapter, in a press briefing said IBP was born 40 years ago in the country’s critical period during Martial Law declared by the late president Ferdinand Marcos. The group played a crucial role in defending human rights amidst the dictatorship under the leadership of its first president, former Supreme Court Associate Justice Jose Benedicto Luna (JBL) Reyes. Zarate added that Davao and the province of Davao del Sur share important places in the history of IBP, where three of its lawyers were arrested during Martial Law, namely former IBP

Davao president Laurente ‘Larry’ Ilagan, Regional Prosecutor Antonio Arellano and Atty. Marcos Risonar. He also said other lawyers offered their lives in their duties to defend human rights. The national convention will have the mandatory continuing education which will focus on topics related to the justice system, election laws and the improvement of services to the people. Another important discussion will be the framework agreement on Bangsamoro with newly-appointed Supreme Court Justice and government peace negotiator Marvic Leonen. Supreme Court Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno is reported to grace the grand ball on January 17. Other distinguished guests are Senator Edgardo Angara, former IBP national president who will be the guest of honor and speaker on the opening ceremony and Senator Alan Peter Cayetano who will join the lawyers during the luncheon treat on the same date.

politicians should tell the people that they are serious in helping them, and then move to really help them in the rehabilitation process. Compostela Valley Governor Arturo Uy said he personally does not see why elections in the province will not push through despite the destruction of several public schools due to the typhoon. “We have substantial classrooms that can become voting centers,” he said. However, Uy admitted that unless the rehabilitation of the schools in various areas are completed soon, there might be failure of elections in Manurigao, Cagan and Pagsabangan in New Bataan and in Langawisan in Maragusan. At present, he said, they still need choppers to deliver relief goods in the said barangays. And even before the typhoon, Uy said it is already difficult to go to the said areas because of their locations. Despite this, he said, “di kailangan ma postpone ang election.”(RGA/LAC/ PIA XI)

Helmet Law covers everyone even law men - LTO XI By Joey Sem G. Dalumpines DAVAO CITY,The Land Transportation Office XI (LTO-XI) warned traffic cops and traffic enforcers of local government units that they are not exempted from the use of prescribed and standard helmets as provided by law. Macario Gonzaga, assistant regional director of the LTO XI said traffic enforcers are supposed to be the models in the compliance of the Helmet law so that motorists will conform to

Davao Norte solon sees healthier Pinoys with Sin Tax Reform Law By Carmencita A. Carillo TAGUM CITY, PIA) -Davao del Norte 1st District Representative Anthony del Rosario said Filipinos can expect more healthcare benefits as a result of the enactment into law of Republic Act 10351 or An Act Restructuring the Excise Tax on Alcohol and Tobacco. “Up to 80 percent of the P34 billion increase to the government revenue during the first year of the law’s implementation will be used for health insurance coverage while 20 percent will be for health facilities,” del Rosario said. The law provides that the regulation. He said the LTO will also conduct random inspections even helmets of traffic policemen and members of the Traffic Management Center. “The Helmet Law does not exempt anyone from compliance. Road safety is a concern of everyone including those enforcing the law,” Gonzaga pointed out. He disclosed that more

part of the revenues from the new tax reform law will have to be allocated for the tobacco farmers as specified under RA 8240 and RA 7171. The remaining balance will then be spent for NHIP and other medical and health programs. Del Rosario, who has made health an advocacy with up to 80 percent of his House Bills related to health, said the signing into law of RA 10351 is proof of President Benigno S. Aquino’s sincerity in his health program. He said there is now more budget allocation for health programs including the National Health Insurance Program.

This is one of the most important laws crafted and approved before the end of 2012, he said. It has been 16 years since the taxes on alcohol and cigarettes have been adjusted due to the lobbying of tobacco companies, he added. “For the first time we see a President who does not only want to increase taxes but who wants to increase it for a specific purpose,” he said. Whoever succeeds the President in 2016 will have no choice but to use the funds as stated in the law, he added. There is no reason why the health industry won’t improve after this law, he said.(lovely a. carillo)

than two hundred motorists have been fined for the first time following the full enforcement of the helmet policy since January 13. Gonzaga explained the LTO is only implementing the law after the Department of Trade and Industry XI ended up its informationeducation campaign, assessment and attaching ICC stickers on helmets which passed the quality standard on December 28 last year. He said on the first week of

January, the LTO conducted random checks just to warn motorcycles to conform to the use of standard helmets. “We only launched full implementation of the law only this week extending on the outer districts of the city. Despite the initial apprehension, I observed that many drivers in the city follow the Helmet Law,” Gonzaga said. He stressed that the intent of the law is only to promote the safety of motorcycle riders.

ComVal Gov urge PNP to file case versus protesters By Lovely Carillo TAGUM CITY, -- Compostela Valley Governor Arturo Uy maintained that the government will treat protesters with maximum tolerance but urged the Philippine National Police to file charges against those who blocked the road in Montevista Tuesday (January 15) which hampered relief efforts and other economic activities in the area. “We are with the government and we want to exercise maximum tolerance as much as possible even if

we know that the rally is illegal,” Uy said during a press conference held in the city Thursday. PNP Provincial Director P/Supt Pancratius Cascolan said the protestors can easily get from arresto mayor to prision correccional which has a penalty of between six months to two years. However, he said, “wala pa tayong narinig na raliyista na nakulong (we haven’t heard of any rallyist who has been put to prison).” "We can also file a case for alarm and scandal or we can just add up all the

possible cases against them", he said. But we have to make sure that we have a strong case against them and that we have witnesses who will appear in court or the case will be useless, he added. Uy however urges the PNP to file a case against the protesters. “But I still urge the PNP to file the case kahit na di ito mag prosper because a violation has been committed,” Uy said. While charges will be filed against the organizers known to them and seen by them during the protest action, Uy said cases would

not be filed against those who were just tricked into joining the protest action “kay biktima din sila.” Uy said he was informed by the barangay captains in the area that the people in the barangays were encouraged to go to the area supposedly because boxer and Sarangani Representative Manny Pacquiao will be there to distribute relief goods. “I already talked to the barangay captains to account for those who joined the protest action to educate these people,” he said.

Sarangani implements new health plan By Catherine T. Apelacio

GENERAL Santos City Sarangani’s 140 barangay chairs pledged to support and implement the action plan for health which they crafted among other local officials during the two-day provincial health summit held here last week. The summit prodded barangay captains to be the champion in health services in their own barangays and to implement the plan in sixmonth period. Governor Migs Dominguez told summit participants: “Aminin natin na ang health, ang kalusugan ay responsibilidad pala nating lahat (Let’s all admit that health is the responsibility of all).” “Dili ra diay responsibilidad sa doctor, health workers, mayor o sa municipal health officer. Dili diay na solo. So ibig sabihin, tayo palang lahat ang may responsibilidad sa pagpapalaki ng bawat bata in a very healthy way. \ So, it takes a village to raise a healthy child (So it’s not just the responsibility of the doctor, health workers, mayor or municipal health officer but all of us has the responsibility to raise a child in a healthy way),” the governor said. Health summit participants were municipal mayors, barangay chairs and their councilors, planning and health officers, and local health workers. The action plans sought to align with the national benchmark specifically complying with the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) and universal health care. Purposely for MDG 4 (reduction of child mortality),

Provincial Health Officer Antonio Yasana said that it will be “mostly likely achieved by the Philippines if the current trend of decreasing infant mortality rates and child mortality rates proceeds as is.” However, he also pointed out that MDG 5 (improvement of maternal care) “will likely not be achieved unless radical reforms are made at the barangay level to ensure all mothers have access to pre-natal care, safe births, emergency obstetric care, post-natal care and family planning services.” In Sarangani, maternal mortality rate has decreased from 2.18% in 2011 to 1.12% in 2012 from every 1,000 livebirths. Meanwhile, infant mortality rate also reduced from 5% in 2011 to 2.56% in 2012. Under-five mortality recorded 75 deaths in 2011 and only 48 in 2012. The summit was held to address these concerns as Dr. Yasana told barangay captains to be “on top of the situation in the barangay. That’s the only way for you to be able to address health problems, concerns, issues” in their barangay. As the Aquino Health Agenda on the universal health care which targets all Filipinos to be enrolled in Philhealth, Sarangani also takes the challenge “to make all the municipal level hospitals PhilHealthaccredited.” Dr. Yasana added “all barangay health stations must have a seal of excellence from the Department of Health” as well.

THINK a minute. Someone said: “You can always get what you want, if you help other people get what they want.” Frank Bettger started selling life insurance as a young man. By the time he was 29 he was a miserable failure and in terrible debt. He says he finally realized what he needed to do was to help other people know what they want, and then help them decide how to get it. Frank Bettger went on to be so successful that he was able to retire at age 41! A great leader puts it this way: “If you want another person to see something your way, you must go over to his side and see it his way first; then guide him back over to your side. Don’t stand across the room and

do worse. We just make them angrier and want to rebel against us. So if we want to change our wife or husband, our children, or someone with whom we work, we’ve got to let them know we understand what they want. Then we must care enough to try and help them get it. It’s only then that they will want to change and do what you want also. This is why Jesus Christ teaches that we must love others as much as ourselves,

that is, care about their needs and desires just like our own. It’s only then that we end up finding our own needs for happiness and success being satisfied. It’s simply a law of life that always works. You always end up happier and more blessed by giving and putting others first. But you also find that those other people end up wanting to start changing because of your powerful influence and help in their life. If today you realize that you’ve been putting yourself first before others, why not ask Jesus Christ to forgive you today? Then ask Him to start changing your character every day, so you can start enjoying the success that only comes from helping others succeed. Just Think a Minute.

children bread, so God has promised to give us “good gifts” when we ask Him. The Lord reveals to us through His Word, the Bible, that we can be of good “cheer,” that we can rejoice in our problems because God will use them to our benefit. God is bigger than all our worries and problems put together, and we must realize that if we are to have any victory in our lives. We must not let Satan deceive us into thinking

that all our problems are our fault, all our worries will come true, all our anger condemns us, or that all our guilt is from God. If we do sin and confess, God forgives and cleanses. We n e e d n o t f e e l ashamed, but rather take God at His Word that He does forgive and cleanse. In reality, feelings come from thoughts, so, even though we can’t change how we feel, we can change how we think. And this is what God wants us to do. Christians are told, “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus. So, each day, taking one step at a time, we should pray for God’s Word to guide us, read or listen to God’s Word, and meditate on God’s Word when the problems, worries, and anxieties of life come along.

Think A Minute Jhan Tiafau Hurst shout at him or call him stupid! Don’t command or order him to come over to your side. You must start where he is and work from there. That’s the only way to get him to truly change his mind.” So when our kids are feeling down and discouraged, it doesn’t work or help when we yell or tell them just to be smarter or tougher and do better. In fact, many times by doing that we only hurt our kids more and make them

Casting cares and anxieties to God

WE often become discouraged in life’s cares. But the word of God teaches us to “Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall” (Psalm 55:22), and “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7). The truth is that God will sustain us, He will never let us fall, and He cares for us. Taken one at a time, we see first that God declares both His ability and His willingness to be our strength and support—mentally, emotionally and spiritually. He is able to take everything that threatens to overwhelm us and use it for our benefit. He has promised to “work all things together for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Even at times when we

The New Generation Alex A. Podador doubt Him, He is still working for our good and His glory. And He has also promised that He will allow no trial to be so great we cannot bear it and that He will provide a means of escape. By this, He means that He will not let us fall. God cares for us. Our God is not cold. He is our loving heavenly Father whose heart is tender toward His children. Jesus reminds us that just as an earthly father would not deny his

Multiple murders in Atimonan

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… The one who maintains his faith will not panic…” (Isaiah 28:16, the Holy Bible). -oooCONSIDERATIONS FOR INVITING THE PRESIDENT: Just how, exactly, does one invite President Aquino---or any other president of this country for that matter---to any gathering, such as the Sinulog Festival in Cebu City which starts Sunday, January 20, 2013? Is there a protocol or rule for this, so that, when that protocol or rule is followed, the President’s presence is already assured? Or, inviting the President and being assured of his presence are matters that are decided by the political affiliation or personal acquaintance of those wishing to invite him? In other words, can just any Tom, Dick and Harry, including his political opponents,

Kakampi mo ang batas Atty. Batas Mauricio invite the President to their gathering? -oooMULTIPLE MURDERS IN ATIMONAN MASSACRE: Now, there is one more compelling evidence which proves that many policemen and military men cannot--or should not---be trusted by the people---the January 06, 2013, Atimonan, Quezon massacre. As Justice Secretary Leila De Lima and Director Nonnatus Rojas of the National Bureau of Investigation have been told during a re-enactment of the massacre, policemen and military men could be

cold-blooded murderers. Indeed, that was what happened to the 13 who were killed by a group led by Supt. Hansel Marantan of the Philippine National Police (PNP)---murder. Or, what is more appropriate, based on the re-enactment witnessed by De Lima and Rojas, multiple murders. Imagine, two of the 13 already had their hands raised, as if in surrender, and yet they were still mercilessly gunned down. Then, without any fight being put up by the companions of the two who remained inside their vehicles

while the two were raising their hands in surrender, the policemen and military men manning the checkpoint in Atimonan opened fire, upon the order of a man in civilian clothes, with such firepower that assured no one inside those vehicles will survive. Again, the question is: what is happening to our country, general? -oooARMED STRUGGLE IS AGAINST GOD’S LAW: I agree with newly-installed Armed Forces Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Emmanuel Bautista that an armed struggle is not the solution to finding peace and prosperity for the Philippines, and, to pursue this matter a little farther, for any other country of the world. But, not because an armed struggle is the less effective path towards peace and prosperity, what with the death and destruction MURDERS | page 10

Camiguin tourist arrivals hit 404,000 CAMIGUIN––Tourist arrivals in the island province of Camiguin increased 9.8 percent in 2012, the provincial tourism office here said. Domestic and foreign tourists last year totaled 404, 000 against 368,000 tourist arrivals recorded in 2011, tourism officials said. It was estimated that the tourists spent more than P1 billion during their stay in the island, provincial governor Jesus Romualdo said. He said that the earnings of the island’s tourism industry sustained Camiguin’s economic growth and development. Romualdo said that the province were pursuing establishments of various recreational centers to provide more tourist attractions and ensure that visitors enjoy their stay in a peaceful and naturally preserved island. He said more tourists are coming to Camiguin island as the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines approved two more flight routes for Cebu Pacific Air in the island.

DENR scales up clean water program AGUSAN del Norte - The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is working toward protecting more river systems in the country, as part of its efforts to ensure clean, safe and sustainable water quality for a greater number of Filipinos. T h is d e vel op e d, as DENR Secretary Ramon J.P. Paje recently signed an administrative order designating another important river system in Mindanao, as a water quality management area (WQMA) pursuant to Republic Act 9275, or the Philippine Clean Water Act of 2004. Sec. Paje said the designation of Taguibo River in Agusan del Norte as WQMA signifies the government’s commitment to providing clean water which, according to him, “is a basic right of every Filipino.” “Access to clean water is a fundamental human right and it is the duty of the government to guarantee this,” he pointed out. He added, “Apart from that, access to safe drinking water and sanitation is among the eight Millennium Development Goals of the United Nations as a means to control the spread of

water-borne diseases.” Sec. Paje said the designation of WQMAs is an important tool in enforcing the Clean Air Act as it calls for the protection of the water quality of river systems that are essential for livelihood and public health. In the case of Taguibo River, it is a source of water supply for Butuan City and nearby towns. It plays a crucial role in local livelihood since it provides water for agricultural production. The river also serves as principal sustaining resource to aquaculture in the area, and supports food production and industry in its jurisdiction. “Just like what we are doing in other WQMAs, we have to maintain an acceptable water quality in the Taguibo River because it is a source of water supply and livelihood of the people of Butuan City, as well as the

towns of Magallanes and Remedios T. Romualdez in Agusan del Norte,” Sec. Paje stated. The Butuan City Council had earlier passed a resolution recommending to the DENR Secretary the designation of Taguibo River as WQMA, saying its present condition requires serious protection and management actions by the local government and several stakeholders located within the watershed area. Sec. Paje further said designating WQMAs will enable concerned officials both in the national and local levels to take focused

interventions on specific water quality issues relevant to a particular locality. Under the Clean Water Act, the DENR, in coordination with the National Water Resources Board, is mandated to designate certain areas as WQMAs using appropriate physiographic units such as watershed, river basins, or water resources regions to effectively enforce its provisions and improve the water quality of water bodies.

The law seeks to provide a decentralized management system for water quality protection and improvement of rivers. Likewise, the DENR is tasked to create a governing board for each WQMA, which is chaired by a regional director of the DENR’s Environmental Management Bureau (EMB). Its members include the mayor and governor of the concerned local government unit and representatives of relevant national

government agencies, duly registered non-government organizations, and business and water utility sectors. The governing board serves as a planning, monitoring and coordinating body. It also reviews the WQMA action plan prepared by EMB. Under the WQMA, the DENR and the stakeholders address the water quality problems, sources of pollution, and the beneficial use of the receiving water body. They also determine what control measures to institute to effectively achieve water quality objectives or improvements. There are at least seven other WQMAs earlier designated by the DENR. These are the Sinocalan-Dagupan river system in Pangasinan; the Marilao-MeycauayanObando river system and areas within the Laguna Lake Development Authority’s jurisdiction in Luzon; the Tigum-Aganan watershed and the Iloilo-Batiano river system in the Visayas; and the Silway River and the Sarangani Bay in Mindanao.

THE MEDIA CENTER BUSINESSWEEK MINDANAO Tanleh Bldg., Abellanosa St., Cagayan de Oro City

“Thank you very much for making me join the broadcasting seminar on October 15, 2012 at BusinessWeek Mindanao Media Center. I would have regretted it, if I didn’t come. I learned a lot of things on how to become a better broadcaster. Then, all I had was confidence. Now, it’s confidence with knowledge. The activity was a lot of fun. I thought it would be awkward, but I found myself being comfortable with my fellow school broadcasters, and also with our speaker, who never failed to get my attention. He is now my role model of an effective speaker. It is because, through the four hours that I have listened to him, I never, even once, bored and all he said is still clear in my head. It was an experience that I’ll never forget and I’ll treasure forever.”

that come with it. It is more becuase an armed struggle is actually a rebellion against duly-constituted authorities which will never bring the desired economic development and stability for any nation. The examples now of many countries where rebellions recently took place will show that the victory of rebels against authorities is actually empty if shortlived, with more violence and anarchy hitting those countries subsequently. It is therefore clear that rebellion and armed struggles will only cause more harm than good. There is no substitute for following a non-violent approach to finding peace and prosperity. What is more, those who rebel against authorities are rebelling against what God has established, for all authority are established by God Himself, and anyone rebelling against them bring punishment to themselves (see Romans 13:1-2, the Bible). -oooPOSTCRIPT TO THE TULFO-BARRETO MELEE: A postscript to the Ramon Tulfo-Claudine BarretoRaymart Santiago airport melee, after the Office of the City Prosecutor of Pasay City charged Barreto and Santiago only for slight physical injuries for Tulfo’s wounds: if our proposal to make newsmen from print, radio and TV, as persons in authority is in effect, the charge against the showbiz couple would not have been physical injuries only, but assault against a person in authority, which carries a higher penalty. -oooREACTIONS?

The distribution plan, she said, must contain information such as where to distribute the rice, who will receive them, when will the distribution be, and who will be accountable for the rice, among others. Razon said the social workers from the DSWD provincial and municipal offices should be present in every distribution. Barug Katawhan will provide reports on the distributions. She stressed that it should be acknowledged that the assistance came from the government during the distribution. Sheena Duazo, spokesperson of Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan), which was one of the supporters of the protest, said in a text message Wednesday Barug Katawhan leader Karlos Tranghiya received a document from the provincial staff of DSWD during the barricade. She said the paper was

Editorial. : mindanaodailynews@gmail.com Advertising : mindanaodaily.ads@gmail.com an agreement between the group and DSWD, signed by Secretary Corazon Soliman, stating the conditions for the release of rice. “We can assure that we can provide the requirements,” Duazo said. She added that it is better for DSWD to prepare the 10,000 sacks now. While waiting for the distribution plan, Razon said the DSWD will continue its relief operations which will extend up to the next three months before it will start its emergency shelter assistance. Razon told reporters the protesters were only trying to get the attention of the public. Their issues, she said, were probably legitimate but she does not approve of the means the issues were raised. Reacting to the DSWD official’s statement, Duazo said the protest was peopleled and food is a legitimate demand. “Victory could not be achieved without the people asserting their rights,” she said. Razon said every victim of Typhoon Pablo was served without discrimination as opposed to the protesters’ claim that there are still areas not yet reached by relief operations. DSWD-11 cited that they have served a total of 130,038 families or 520,152 persons in ComVal, and 56,352 families or 225,408 persons in Davao Oriental, which were the hardest hit of Pablo. The DSWD also claimed it has served 45,905 families or 183,620 persons in Davao del Norte, and 1,059 families or 4,236 persons in Davao del Sur. Maj. Jake Obligado, chief of Civil Military Operations of the Army’s 10th Infantry Division, also said at the media forum that the protest was apparently a propaganda campaign by the organizations behind it – Bayan Muna, Kilusang EXTRA-JUDICIAL PARTITION WITH WAIVER AND QUITCLAIM Notice is hereby given that the intestate estate of the Late RAMON GASTON DACUDAO, who died on March 25, 2005 in Cagayan de Oro City, upon his death left parcels of land; Lot 1334-B-2, Psd 10-043268, portion of 1334-B, Psd 10-000348, Located at Kauswagan, Cagayan de Oro City, with an area ONE THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED FIFTY FOUR (1,754) square meters, more or less and covered by TCT No. T-157424 is the subject of EXTRA-JUDICIAL PARTITION WITH WAIVER AND QUITCLAIM, made and executed by and between the following; FELICISIMA ACURANTES-DACUDAO is the surviving spouse, while LEO A.

Mayo Uno, Anakpawis, Kadamay and Karapatan. Asked for a reaction, lawyer Carlos Isagani Zarate, Bayan Muna partylist second nominee, said in a text message, “Thousands of poor farmers and lumads who are in the brink of too much hunger, if not death, more than a month after Pablo, are not mere propaganda!” For him, propaganda is “when government leaders try to mask its incompetence by high profile relief distribution photo ops while the hungry and poor Pablo victims are still insecure of their future after the last food pack is consumed.” “What is propaganda is when officials play politics and use the relief program as part of its counter-insurgency campaign,” Zarate said.

elderly and PWDs form part the larger groups of households housed in makeshift shelters in various evacuation centers. According to OCHA’s monitoring, the need for shelter remained critical in Davao Oriental and Compostela Valley that were badly hit by typhoon Pablo on Dec. last year. The typhoon caused extreme impact on shelter with 98 percent destroyed or 93 percent considered uninhabitable, based on the group’s survey. At least 46,800 houses were totally damaged with 21,200 in Davao Oriental province and 25,500 in Compostela Valley province, based on reports. The camp coordination and management task force reported that the typhoon displaced some 2,568 fami-

lies or 12,800 people in Compostela Valley, Davao Oriental and Surigao del Sur provinces. Of the total number of displaced households, 875 families or 4,400 people are living in makeshift shelters, tents and bunkhouses based on the cluster’s recent assessment. The UN humanitarian groups have provided some 54,500 shelter repair kits which include tarpaulins and corrugated galvanized iron sheets, some tools, fixings and materials “to ensure safe and adequate shelter.

We look forward to seeing you all. “Immoral, inhumane, insensitive,” were just some of the descriptions those working with the typhoon devastated people on the ground said about the invitation. They said the housewarming party is “immoral because the survivors still have no decent shelter; inhumane because the party is a waste of resources, which would be of better use if spent to help the survivors; and insensitive because the UN-OCHA housewarming party is like ignoring the plight of the survivors.” Ben Aspera of LandCare Philippines said the way the invitation was written, and its timing, only proves that UNfrom page 1 OCHA staff based in Davao this invitation should not be City—which is far away from part of any disaster response the devastation wrought by team,” said another, who has Pablo’s wrath — are “not using spent most of December and their minds.” January with the survivors in “This only shows their Baganga. people in the field are not The invitation was emailed using their minds,” Aspera, a by Kasper Engborg of UN-OCHA former staff of the International Davao City sub-office to all Organization for Migration (IOM) partners in the clusters doing said. emergency response in the Aspera also alerted UNwake of Typhoon Pablo (Bopha).

with affected communities, said they are taking the views of their “fellow actors in our emergency responses” in Davao Oriental “very seriously.” “We would like to stress that as a coordination body, we are always open to feedback from fellow actors in our emergency responses, and we take their views very seriously,” she said in her email. Wall also said that these reactions from the field should have been better shared with UN-OCHA directly for them to be able to comment and respond appropriately. “We would therefore very much like to encourage your contacts to share their concerns directly with us as we are keen to hear their perspectives and address the issues they raise. There are contacts on the sitrep [situation report, which UN-OCHA regularly updates], and staff in the hubs who are available to talk to partners. Once we have heard their comments first hand we will be in a much better position to comment ourselves,” she added. Charlito “Kaloy” Manlupig, chief of Balay Mindanaw Group of NGOs (BMG), urged UN-OCHA to also learn to practice the art of listening to the devastated communities and people from other groups working on the ground. “They can be more effective in pursuing their mandate if they listen more to the local communities and groups,” he said. Manlupig said he respects the right of UN-OCHA to celebrate. However, he said UNOCHA will do better if its people are more sensitive to the feelings of the survivors. “While we respect their right to celebrate, they may want to be a little more sensitive so as not to offend the feelings of the survivors who continue to struggle to rise from the disaster,” he said. Aspera, on the other hand, expressed hope that UN-OCHA “will take this as lessons learned.” (Bong D. Fabe)

The Ian Nuer Fever By: Kirt David B. Mercado, Contributor

What defines an artist? In one TV show, The Script lead vocalist, Danny O'Donoghue said that the difference between an artist and a singer is that a singer, you can give a song and just let him sing but an artist is one you can collaborate with. An artist is therefore, beyond a singer. An

artist is someone who has more musicality, more creativity and definitely more experience. In Cagayan de Oro, there are many talented vocalists and you can find them performing in the hottest bars in the city. Some of these vocalists are mere singers while others are true artists.
