Flood takes heavy toll on Carmen town agri By Jeanevive Abangan
DAVAO del Norte––The Municipality of Carmen is losing more than P21 million in agriculture and fisheries when floodwaters from three major rivers have swamped for two days its rice fields and aquaculture fishpens. Municipal Mayor Marcelino Perandos, in an interview Tuesday, said the massive flooding that has hit his town since Sunday evening (Jan. 20) has displaced a number of families and has substantially ruined farming livelihood of his people. In a separate interview, Municipal Agriculture Officer Maximo Pillotes placed estimates of damaged rice farms at 2,003 hectares
which were either at newly transplanted stage, vegetative stage or still at their seed-bed stage. Brackish and fresh-water fishponds with a combined land area of 130 hectares have also lost productivity when Liboganon, Tuganay and Ising rivers have spawned huge volume of flood-waters for about four days now due to continuous raining caused by the tail-end of the cold-front. Rice farms and fishponds are still nowhere in sight as rice paddies have been submerged in about two meters of flood waters, turning Carmen’s wide rice farms into a sea of murky waters which have spilled over more than 2 kilometer stretch of the national highway along barangays
Tuganay and Guadalupe. Noting the recent flooding as the second of such magnitude he had witnessed since 1982, Perandos called on concerned government agencies and even the humanitarian agencies to assist his town recover. On top of food assistance and medicine for affected families, he is also appealing for rice seeds, rice inputs and biologics for livestock. Meanwhile, Perandos prioritized relief distribution to agriculture-dependent barangays particularly in Tuganay, Guadalupe and Maba-os among others where constituents are largely dependent on farming. “While others are disrupted from doing their jobs, people there have noth-
ing else as their source of income,” he said as noted heavy loss in agriculture. Only one barangay is declared not affected. The rest of the 20 barangays suffered a blow due to massive flooding. Flooded barangays are Ising, Tuganay, Guadalupe, Mabaus, Salvacion, Anibongan, San Isidro, New Camiling, Asuncion, Cebulano, Mangalcal, Sto. Nino, Alejal, Taba, Magsaysay, Tubod, La Paz, Tibulao and Mabuhay. The flood has caused disruption of normal flow of daily lives to some 16,300 families and even displaced a total of 3,405 families who have sought refuge at the
municipal and barangay gymnasiums and barangay centers. Others, however, prefer to stay along the national highway. The municipal government had already dispatched Tuesday 2,000 family food packs and the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO) sent Monday some 2,500 packs of relief assistance from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). Perandos bared efforts to stretch relief provisions from DSWD by repacking the food packs of 15 kilos of rice into five kilos “so more can benefit from the
assistance.” He appealed for more relief assistance to include water supply, as he expected his constituents to experience more flooding occurrences, and would eventually be displaced more often. “This is due to the tailend of the cold-front, but PAGASA says we will be experiencing inter-tropical convergence zone. If these (weather conditions) come more often, we will again be flooded,” he said. He raised concern on frequents floods to hit his town as the river dikes had been destroyed causing flood-waters to spread all over his town.
Rebels chided anew for Davor ambush By Joey Sem G. Dalumpines MAWAB, Compostela Valley––The military chided the communist rebels anew for the explosion of an improvised explosive device that left one soldier killed and six injured last Tuesday (Jan.22) in Sitio Mainit, Barangay Calapagan, Lupon, Davao Oriental. Lt. Col. Lyndon Paniza, spokesperson of the 10th Infantry Division said the New People’s Army once more showed its cruelty by disrupting a humanitarian activity intended for the survivors of typhoon Pablo. He identified the lone fatality as Private First Class
Jhasam Diaz, a member of the 28th Infantry Battalion. Paniza said Diaz passed away while undergoing treatment at the provincial hospital of Davao Oriental. He said the six other survivors are being treated for their injuries. “The soldiers on board two Army trucks were going back to their headquarters from security and rehabilitation operation of the typhoon Pablo when an improvised landmine exploded hitting the rear portion of the second vehicle,” he said. Paniza lamented that with the use of IEDs, the rebels continue to defy international agreements that

“TEACHING is a very noble profession”: The idea that encouraged me to earn this degree and remain proud of being one of the gallant mentors of the Department of Education. During my early years of service, it is embarrassing to confess that I look at TEACHING merely as a virtuous means of livelihood; a decent way to earn a living for me and my family. However, having heard of all he messages disclosed by our Secretary, DR. ARMIN A. LUISTRO FSC, I felt more fulfilled as well as grateful for this DISTINY. With Dynamism and Fortitude, the Secretary issued missive for the Division Superintendents, District Supervisors, Principals, and Teachers down to the utility employed by the Department “to work in Synergy & Convergence; infect one another with renewed hope
and optimism; the country we carry on our shoulders, our beloved home – remains huge and heavy; we would need all the focus, strength and determination we could muster to complete these improvements; Let us all do our part; share the load that the burden may become lighter and what seemed impossible can then become possible” accordingly. A very comprehensive task for a guileless lecturer like me. By such pronouncement, the responsibilities of the tutors broaden into the entire community rather than being limited to the students only; the professors are currently obliged to expand the prospect of learning to ensure the visibility of its impact in the lives of the general public; a challenge to adhere the famous outlook of the recent administration which is MATUWID NA LANDAS not an easy

mission for typical professor but certainly an honorable intention of a conventional mentor. Our students, on the other hand, are the utmost fortunate beneficiaries of the contemporary educational system. The combined efforts of the gurus are designed to surpass the triumphs of the past supervisions. The Department of Education is committed to utilize individual tasks and pool it into an integrated scholastic scheme for the advantage of the learners and humanity as a whole. This is the scenario I wished for several years ago; the consequence I am compelled to continue working for perpetually: a challenge I am dedicated to take and a commitment I am proud to keep as my DESTINY.

Anti-mining advocates urge ‘eco-tourism’ in Surigao By Fred B. Dellava, Associate Editor, Mindanao Star
SURIGAO del Sur- Thousands of anti-mining advocates have launched a campaign against rampant small and large scale mining operations that, for years, have severely affected the life of the farmers in this province. During the ‘Mining or Eco-tourism’ symposium at the Cantilan municipal gymnasium, Monday, some 20,000 people from various sectors have expressed support for the immediate stoppage of mining operations in the area. According to Elvie Arrubio, president of the Cantilan Irrigation System Federation Irrigators Association (CISFIA), mining – whether legal or illegal – have threatened the life of many farmers, as it gravely affects their till, consequently disabling them to sustain the education of their children. “For almost four years na nag-ooperate ang mining sa lugar naming, apektado na ang pamilya namin kasi wala nang tubig sa watershed at sira na,” Arrubio said in an interview of Mindanao Star. Arrubio was only glad, the local chief executive of Cantilan town is so much supportive of their cause against
mining in a way of filing suit in court against the operators. The town’s women’s group has also expressed support for the total ban of mining in the entire province. Janise Ann Quintos-Erriberi, president of the Cantilan Women’s Club, said that one of their intensions is to protect the environment, thus they have opted to join the campaign against mining. Erriberi claims her group to have been established almost 10 years ago, with 1, 345 members. “Kagaya ko, meron kaming farm land, iba na kasi ang sitwasyon ngayon. Hindi na kagaya noon na ang tubig ay malinis. Pag-umuulan madaling bumaha,” she said. Erriberi blames the rampant mining operations for the flashfloods that frequently are happening in the towns of Cantilan, Carascal, Madrid, Carmen and Lanuza (Carcanmadcarlan). “We have never been into this situation before the mining operations came,” she further said. When typhoon ‘Pablo’ struck southern Philippines late last year, Surigao del Sur was among the badly-affected provinces.

KORONADAL City - She’s an ordinary barrio girl full of ambition, yet her family’s economic status did not get in the way for her to finish any course in college and land a decent job to support her family’s needs. Ailene Jean P. Mendoza, after graduating from Mariano Untal Memorial High School in 2011, had to stop formal education because of poverty. While helping her family and siblings eke out a living from a small parcel of land planted to vegetables and other agricultural crops in Barangay New Barbaza, Mlang, Cotabato, the 19year old barrio girl’s burning desire to pursue education was answered when
the towns’ Community e-Center opened an opportunity for out-of-school youths to undergo a sixmonth training program. Ailene had so much to say about the break she got from the M’lang Community e-Center, which started operations in 2007. At the graduation rites of the fifth batch of trainees on January 8 where she topped the class of 70 trainees, Ailene Jean in her testimony said she was fortunate to have been given the opportunity to complete the ICT program offered free to poor residents. She said, “ The sixmonth course is a lot of help for youths like me, and others who can not enroll in college because
of financial constraint.” Mlang CeC manager Mary Ann Cortado said the six-year LGU-supported computer learning center has already helped a total of 226 women and outof-school youths (OSYs) since it started operations in 2007. Cortado also thanked t he administ rat ion of Mayor Joselito Pinol, the National Computer Center (NCC) and other kindhearted residents, who donated additional computers units, wall clocks, and other equipment. The Mlang CeC, Cortado said, has been cited by the NCC for its best practices in ICT program implementation. (ACAPIA12/asf )

THINK a minute. During World War II, churches stayed open 24 hours a day so people could come to pray for their country and family members out on the battlefield. A caretaker in one of these churches noticed a boy who came to pray about 10 minutes every day. One day after several weeks, the boy came and stayed to pray even longer. The caretaker asked him why he was praying longer this time. T he b oy ans we re d : “Each day I came to ask God to bring my father home safely. This morning my dad came home, so I hurried here to thank God.” Have you developed the habit of being thankful every day, no matter how things are going? Always remember, there
Think A Minute Jhan Tiafau Hurst are many people with worse problems than yours. My friend’s son, Joshua, was born with a serious heart disease. Joshua has had several heart surgeries. He’s not been able to play sports because of his heart condition. But Joshua’s grandmother always taught him to be thankful. On days when Joshua was so sick he could not go to school, his grandmother told him: “Josh, just be thankful that you’re home and not in the hospital.”
Recently Joshua had another heart surgery, but this time the strong medicine made him so sick he almost died. Joshua’s grandmother telephoned him in the hospital to very kindly and gently say: “Josh, I love you and I’m praying for you. Be thankful you’re not in a coma.” You know that grandmother is right? No matter how bad our problems are, they could always be much worse. When’s the last time you counted all
the good things you have: whether it’s your family, friends, food to eat, clothes to wear, a roof over your head? Things that millions of people in the world do not have. Usually, it’s only after we’ve gone through problems that we learn some of our most important lessons in life. There’s a song that says: “If I’d never had a problem, I’d never know that He could solve them. I’d never know what faith in God could do.” So won’t you give your life to Jesus Christ today, and start trusting Him to take care of you no matter what happens? He’ll help you to see all the good things He’s given you—including answers to prayers you never even prayed. Just Think a Minute.
A letter thanking the soldiers
Today, I am sharing with you a letter by a social worker sent to this writer titled: ‘Thank You Dear Soldiers’ I am writing this letter to let the people know how I, my family and close friends deeply appreciate our soldiers here in Mindanao, specifically here in Cagayan de Oro City and the neighboring provinces. I’m also hoping that through this letter other people will start to know better Cris Diaz our Army of today. I also want the Armed Forces leadership and even the President to know that the soldiers assigned here in 4th Infantry Division (I learned this name only through the local media) are really doing their job and are very commendable. These soldiers should also know that they are being appreciated so that they must continue with what they are doing because we felt that their presence and concern for us provide us with a sense of security. It is important for me to express this message publicly because I have been unfair to all the soldiers ever since I listened to those individuals and groups who are unreasonably critical against men in uniform when I was still in college. The urge within me to vindicate or correct all my past mistakes of vilifying our soldiers is so overwhelming. What really struck me lately other than the reports I heard from the radio, read from the newspapers, or seen on the televisions of soldiers helping typhoon victims, conducting medical outreach programs, and tree planting activities was the soldiers’ visit in Malisa Homes located in this City. Melissa Homes are a shelter for abused women and children who were neglected by
their own families but fortunately taken care of by a well-meaning non-government organization. As a self-declared activist I was really touched to learn that soldiers together with another organization called Regional Association of Government Communicators in Region 10 went to this shelter and gave gifts and foods for these victims of abuses. Never did I imagine that the soldiers have also a heart and sincere concern for these people. I also learned that these same soldiers have taken their time out to bring gifts and foods to our indigenous people from Bukidnon, Misamis Oriental, and the CARAGA Region last Christmas. They also let the kids from depressed barangays experience a child’s party. With these, never will I ever again think badly of our soldiers. Some people despise our soldiers only because of the “old stories of abuses” which have been retold again and again by groups critical of government. I heard a lot more feel-good stories about our soldiers of today and I would like to encourage also other people to publicly show their gratitude for our protectors. By doing such, we can hope to motivate some more these soldiers. This simple gesture of thanks is nothing compared to the sacrifices they are given to us… As I end this letter I want to tell the soldiers to keep up the good work and may the Good Lord bless them and their families in whatever they do. THANK YOU SO MUCH! Ms. Abegail Dahinog Kauswagan, Cagayan de Oro City Environmentalist and Social Worker React email@example.com
End of justice at the Palace of Justice?
LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent--the Lord detests them both… Do not pervert justice or show partiality. Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the innocent…” (Psalm 17:15, and Deuteronomy 16:19, the Holy Bible). -oooDEATH BY AN ANGRY CANADIAN: Canadian John H. Pope, a self-confessed journalist in his own country but who have been staying in the Philippines for more than 11 years now, must have been thoroughly angry and agonizingly troubled when he decided
Kakampi mo ang batas Atty. Batas Mauricio to shoot to death a Cebu City doctor and the doctor’s lawyer, seriously wounding later, with perhaps the same handgun, an assistant prosecutor of the city last Tuesday, January 22, 2013. In fact, Pope must have been totally despondent, losing any further desire to continue living after carrying out the shooting rampage inside Cebu City’s
Palace of Justice, which rampage was primarily directed at the doctor and his lawyer who were his adversaries in various cases that the doctor and the lawyer filed against him, and which city prosecutors decided against him. Pope was said to have shot himself in the head after his deadly attacks. The question here is this: what could have triggered
Pope’s murderous streak? What did the doctor, the lawyer, and the prosecutor do that made Pope very angry at them, seeking them out and intending to really kill them? What sin, if any, did the other prosecutors in the city commit against him that made him look for them in their offices at the Palace of Justice, evidently intending to shoot them, too? -ooo“END OF JUSTICE” AT THE PALACE OF JUSTICE? “End of justice”. Reports from the Manila Bulletin said these were the last words uttered by Pope as he shot to death the justice | page 10

SAN Juan Rep. JV Ejercito Estrada urged the Department of Tourism (DOT) to take advantage of the citations given to the Philippines as one of the top tourist destinations in the world. Ej e rc ito E st r a d a made the statement after the Philippines was given the Best Tourism Destination award by China’s English daily, “Oriental Morning Post.” The citation was based on a consumer survey conducted by the newspaper. Also, American travel magazine “Conde Nast Traveller” recently included the Philippines in its list of “Top Tourist Destinations to Watch in 2013.” Last week, the Philippines received the “Most Romantic Destination” award from another English daily in China, the “Shanghai Morning Post.” The award was also based on a consumer survey. “The DOT should now step up its efforts to promote the Philippines as a tourist spot. At the same time, government should implement the necessary reforms to develop the tourism industry,” said the young lawmaker. He said the government should immediately upgrade major airports in the country and improve other tourism infrastructure to boost tourist arrivals. The senatorial candidate from the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) said the government should focus on developing the country’s tourism industry given its potential to create more jobs and provide business opportunities to local entrepreneurs. Ejercito Estrada said that while the country has many wonderful tourist spots that could lure in travelers, the Philippines is still being edged out by other Southeast Asian countries in terms of attracting tourists. Malaysia, for instance, was visited by 24.7 million tourists in 2011 while only 3.91 million tourists visited the Philippines that same year.

B of the North-Central Mindanao Revolutionary Command swooped down on houses of active and retired military officers in Kinoguitan about 7:00 a.m. Tuesday. He said the rebels seized issued firearms, military uniforms, combat boots, and other belongings before fleeing toward the mountainous villages of Kinoguitan. A team from the 58th IB that conducts clearing operations in the hinterlands of Kinoguitan and the neighboring town of Sugbongcogon immediately established blocking forces in the hinterlands on receiving the report, Osias said. He said another team from the 58th IB’s based company were dispatched to chase after the rebel forces who withdrew to unknown direction. CD
Justice... from page 6
doctor and the lawyer, inside the court room where his cases were to be tried. What did he mean by that? Why did he say “end of justice”? What prompted Pope to cry, “end of justice”, inside the very palace where justice is supposed to be dispensed with? Whatever, it was clear that, aside from great anger and despondency, Pope obviously no longer believed in the capacity of the courts, and of the country’s justice system, to dispense justice in his cases. And whatever be the reason for this disbelief in our justice system, it was clear that Pope perceived that he himself had to take action, and take the law into his own hands. With due respect, I am not saying that these perceptions were true or justified. What I am merely trying to do here is to raise questions that may perhaps afford a satisfactory explanation as to why a foreigner like Pope, a man used to reason because he was a journalist, can resort to senseless violence without regard to his own safety. Perhaps, if we can find this explanation, we can do something
to prevent similar killings from happening again in the future. -ooo“MAINTAIN JUSTICE IN THE COURTS”: This is the reason why this column has always been advocating that justice be strictly maintained in all our courts, not only because that is the bedrock of a true democratic system, not only because that is necessary and desirable to maintain peace and order in our country, but more because that is what God commands in His Word, the Bible. In Amos 5 of the Bible, these are what we will find as admonitions for everyone to maintain justice in the courts: “There are those who turn justice into bitterness and cast righteousness to the ground… There are those who hate the one who upholds justice in court and detest the one who tells the truth. “There are those who oppress the innocent and take bribes and deprive the poor of justice in the courts… Hate evil, love good; maintain justice in the courts… let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream… Therefore this is what the Lord, the Lord God Almighty, says: `There will be wailing in all the streets and cries of anguish in every public square’…” -oooREACTIONS?

was my political officer for Cagayan de Oro-Bukidnon during my last senatorial campaign.” Gino was an active youth leader, a former official of the Sangguniang Kabataan, a delegate to the 5th National Youth Parliament and was a devout Catholic layman. Recto added: “Gino was only 26 years old and could have been a good lawyer after taking the bar recently. He has no known enemies except for those threatened by his expanding footprint
in local politics.” “I’m personally outraged by this dastard act. I strongly condemn the senseless killing of a young man whose only fault was to dedicate his life toward serving his community. I appeal to the leadership of the PNP not only to zero in on ridding Metro Manila and nearby environs of loose firearms but also enforce it even in far-flung provinces. I offer my condolences to Gino’s family and friends, especially to his mother, Elvisa. I trust that concerned agencies would see to it that Gino’s killers would be brought to justice very soon,” said Recto. The victim is also a member of Valencia City mayor Leandro Catarata’s city council. Mayor Catarat, in a media interview was close to tears saying he was so saddened with the death of Zambrano. The mayor added that the victim was one of his trusted leaders in the city whose brand of public service is high integrity.
Rains... from page 1
Administration (Pagasa) has reported yesterday that another Low Pressure Area was seen to cross southeast of General Santos City that heavy rain showers are expected to affect Caraga region, Davao, Soccsksargen, Northern Mindanao and Eastern Visayas. Bunawan Mayor Edwin “Cox” Elorde said even there was sunny weather, water levels that already rose to as high as 16 feet from the ground continue to flood residents living near the river banks of Sumilao river and Agusan river. Bunawan was among the four towns in Agusan del Sur which have been also heavily affected by typhoon Pablo last month. He however noted even as water has started to subside in five other flood-prone villages along Sumilao river , the flood waters engulfed the entire 19,000-hectare Agusan Marsh. “It seems like you can no longer see land in the wide marshland.” “We expect floodwaters to go up again when the

low pressure area that could develop into a storm will hit the neighboring provinces,” Elorde said. Already, Elorde said evacuation centers in the higher grounds and at the town center were set up and relief goods were readied. He called on residents to be prepared and ensure the safety of their children to avoid human casualties. Over the years, residents in Bunawan and six other neighboring river towns have been experiencing heavy flooding brought about by the run off of rain water from the Diwata mountain ranges that traverse Surigao del Sur in the east, Bukidnon in the west, Compostela Valley in the south. Studies also showed that Agusan Marsh is the catch basin of the Agusan-Davao plain since it is the lowest point of Agusan River Basin and serves as confluence of different tributaries of Agusan River.

Bay to the west, Magallanes to the south, Madrid, Surigao del Sur to the east. It is 29 kilometers away from Butuan City. It is generally flat with rolling hills and swamplands in its western part. The highest of all mountains in Caraga Region, Mt. Hilonghilong rises in this city 2,012 meters above se level. POPULATION Cabadbaran is the capital city of the province of Agusan del Norte. It has a population of 69,241 based on the National Statistics Office Census of 2010. HISTORY Cabadbaran was founded in 1894 to rise from its Spanish period beginnings and become the premier town of Agusan del Norte. Its cultural heritage is evident in preserved colonial period houses and archaeological collections. Following its recent declaration as a city, it is also the officially designated capital of the province per Republic Act No. 8911. It is politically subdivided into 31 barangays. Cabadbaran’s existence could be traced back in 1200 AD. Traces of the existence of 12th century villages could be found along ancient waterways dissecting its territory along the old creeks of Caasinan, Cambuayon, and Capudlusan, where preSpanish Cabadbaranons once lived, worked and died during the 9th-12th centuries, contemporaneous with the old archaeological sites in Butuan City. Artifacts from these preSpanich villages could be found today at the Cabadbaran City Artifacts gallery now
housed at the City Library. No records could be found of what transpired in Cabadbaran during the early years of Spanish colonization except for the solitary site in Sanghan which exhibited Chinese ceramics made during the 15th-16th centuries. Records showed that Cabadbaran was first mentioned in history as a small village chosen by Spanish authorities to become a new reduction which they called “La Reunion de Cabadbaran” in 1867. Added to the existing small community at that time were the inhabitants of Bunawan, Talacogon and Solibao who were coerced by Spanish authorities to migrate to La Reunion. Ten years later, in 1879, La Reunion was disbanded. Those from Upper Agusan went back to their places of origin and the remnant population were attached to the town of Tubay. In 1880-1881, Fr. Saturnino Urios revived the reduction but named it Tolosa in honor of his hometown in Spain. This reduction increased the population with migrant settlers coming from the Visayas. In 1880, its leadership under Teniente del Barrio Don Eduardo Curato, applied for township through a petition to Spanish authorities which was approved on January 31, 1894. Separated now from Tubay, the new pueblo still named Tolosa, increased in population and its economy was propped up by agriculture (rice production) and commerce (abaca trading). This steady growth was disrupted by the revolution against Spain in 1896. But even at that time, no significant turmoil occurred in Cabadbaran until the coming of the American occupation forces in 1901. AMERICAN OCCUPATION The superiority in arms of the Americans forced Filipino forces in Agusan, including those in Cabadbaran led by Capt. Andres Atega were forced to surrender. Under American rule and tutelage, Tolosa, was now called again as Cabadbaran as proposed by Atega, and became a center of growth in Northern Agusan. A new generation of leaders emerged. One of them was Apolonio “Oyok” Curato, a son of Eduardo, who became a lawyer and represented Agusan in the 1935 Constitutional Convention. He became a governor and congressman of the undivided province of Agusan. In economy, Cabadbaran started abaca production from the extensive coconut plantations established at the start of the American occupation. Rice remained as staple crop grown in the ricefields of present day areas of Calibunan and Mabini. The Agusan-Surigao road became serviceable in the 1930s. Several bus companies, among them MASTRANCO, started servicing this route, which contributed to economic growth. Next: World War II
