in the General Appropriation Act for such expenses. In the succeeding year, a memorandum of agreement was reenacted and the Chief Executive signed with the heartfelt approval when the Department of Education through its Division Office announced that appropriation for the salary of teachers and its operational expenditures for Macapari High School are already embodied in the General Appropriation Act of 2011. Under the signed agreement, The Local Government Unit shall temporarily shoulder the salary of the teachers pending the release of funds from the Department of Education.The amazing grace came when the Joint Together Society (JTS) a non- government organization based in Korea, announced that they were able to tap the Korean International Cooperative Agency (KOICA) to take partner with them in providing school buildings for Macapari National High School.In one of the meetings of the JTS officials, the founder had announced and proclaimed top provide the funding of a five year school project for Macapari National High School as a token of their gratitude and as a reward to Mayor Romeo P. Tiongco for being good and down-to-earth supportive for the cause of educating children in the hinterland. From an aborted negotiation, the school site was finally owned by the Barangay Government because of the revived interest causing the schedule of the groundbreaking ceremony for the first building on the 2nd day of April ,two thousand twelve at Macapari Damulog, Bukidnon,Philippines.Macapari National High School has started its first year of operation in the Scholl year 20112012 with one section w2hich was manned by two teachers utilizing the classrooms from the elementary school.It is now in its 2nd year of operation which temporarily occupied the same classrooms but was finally transferred to the new classrooms in the new school site immediately after the formal turn-over on November 06,2012. At present, there are five functional classrooms available, while the other five and administration building are still in its construction process. At last the students are now enjoying the convenience of studying in a public school nearby with a modern and spacious building conducive to learning.

‘Styro’ giplanong idili sa CdeO

MAKADAUT ba gayod sa panglawas ang polystyrene

BACKGROUND / HISTORY OF MACAPARI NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL The plan to put-up a high school at Barangay Macapari had been espoused by the Barangay and Municipal officials during the late’ 90s. However, it did not materialized. The plan was revived by the incumbent Barangay Chairman Ho. Pepito H. Diez first assumed to the office in the year 2002. He made the series of public consultations, personal talk to the LGU officials, Provincial Governor and to the representative of the 3rd district, Congressman Juan Miguel F. Zubiri. It was that he got the verbal approval and was tasked to find a lot to be purchased for such purpose. Punong Barangay Diez was able to negotiate the land owner Mr. Mariano Causin to sell his seven (7) hectares with the condition that it is intended for school site or any government projects Priced at P 50,000.00 per hectare, the land was acquired by the barangay government through the congressional assistance from the Congressman Juan Miguel F. Zubiri amounting to P350,000.00. Upon the acquisition of the site, Barangay officials of Macapari made their next move requesting the government for the establishment of a National High School. After complying the requirements ,congress enacted Republic Act No.9933 on July 27 2009, an act establishing a National High School in Barangay Macapari,Municipality of Damulog,Province of Bukidnon to be known as Macapari National High School and appropriating funds therefore. Records showed that such republic Act was finally passed by the House of Representative and Senate on September 2, 2008 and October 13 ,2009 respectively; and was finally signed by President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo on January 07,2010.Prior to the approval of R.A.9933, the plan was postponed due to insufficiency of local funds for its counterpart to sustain the operation while national appropriation was still on the process thinking that such dchool shall be ran as an extension of the existing institution, the Old Damulog National High School and will temporarily accupy the two classsrooms of the elementary school. With such idea, the Department of Education did not allow to start classes because at that time the signing of Memorandum of Agreement, there was no yet appropriation embodied

The regional office of the Department of Social Welfare and Development is gearing up for the upcoming expansion of the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa KahirapanComprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (KALAHI-CIDSS) Project this year. “Lumalaki ang responsibilidad natin na palawakin din ang kakayahan ng mamamayan na tugunan ang pangangailangan ng kanilang kapwa at kanilang magamit ang pera sa maayos at matapat na paraan (We now have a bigger responsibility to enrich the capabilities of the people for them to address their needs, and for them to spend their money wisely),” said Social Welfare and Development Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman during the Kalahi-CIDSS and BuB (Bottom-up Budgeting)Planning Workshop held in Tagaytay last January. “One of the ironies of being in the government is that when you do good work and you deliver well, the reward is more work,” she added. KALAHI-CIDSS is a community-driven development (CDD) project of the Philippine Government that is driven by the commitment to empower people to improve the quality of their lives, by themselves, through their power. The NCDDP The NCDDP, or the National Community-Driven Development Program, is the scaling up of the community driven development (CDD), a strategy that has been tried and proven effective in KALAHI-CIDSS. The CDD gives citizens control over decisions and resources so they can undertake localized solutions to identified community problems. It aims to provide poor communities access to services and increase their participation in more inclusive local planning, budgeting and implementation. NCDDP will benefit five million households, 851 municipalities with high poverty incidence, located in 68 provinces of 15 regions. While it is the lead implementing agency of NCDDP, the Department of Social Welfare and Development will work with the other agencies that are part of the National Inter-Agency Preparation and Implementation Team (NIAPT). These are the DILG, DAR, DENR, DepEd, DA, DOLE, DOH, DoE, PCUP, Department of Finance (DoF), National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), Department of Budget and Management (DBM), and NAPC. “NCDDP is really a recognition because we are now using the CDD approach as a national strategy involving other national government agencies. NCDDP would mean P81B over six years, more or less. And DSWD’s portion is close to P31B over six years.

Teaching Oral Language Rashmiah M. Pendatun Teacher I of Pamotolon Elementary School Kalilangan, Bukidnon

Early progress in reading depends on oral language development. Normally developing children raised by caring adults develop speech and language abilities naturally and without effort. Learning to read is a different process because it involves learning about a symbolic system (writing) used to represent speech. Before children begin to learn to associate the written form with speech, they need to learn the vocabulary, grammar and sound system of the oral language. Research has shown that there is a close connection between oral vocabulary and early reading ability. The ability to attend to the individual sounds within words (phonological and phonemic awareness) is also an oral skill that is closely associated with reading ability. Practical classroom applications • The home is the ideal place where young children develop language skills in their interactions with adults and other children • Teachers can provide opportunities for children to develop their oral language

through story-telling and showand-tell activities. • Young children should be encouraged to use oral language to express themselves while learning about print and books both at home and in school. • Shared book reading to groups of students using Big Books is an effective instructional strategy that introduces books and reading to children, while encouraging them to talk about what is being read. • Class dictated stories make use of children’s oral language in structured reading and writing activities with the help of the teacher. First, the children tell a story in their own words. The teachers write this down on the blackboard for the children, and then read their story back to them. Students take turns practicing reading the story as well. • For older students and adults learning to read in a second or foreign language, developing proficiency in the target language is very important. This means having opportunities to speak and use the language extensively. (Snows, Burns, & Griffin,1998;Bernhardt, 2000)

‘Sabta na lang aron madali’ ANIAY akong nadawat gikan sa electronic mail kon e-mail nga tipik sa sinulat ni Dr. Eddie R. Babor, LL.B., nga gititulohan og “The status of Cebuano as a language in the ambience of philosophy.” Nakita ko nga maayo kini nga atong salo-salohan yawat na lang nga makakaton kita pagsulat sa binisaya nga adunay grammar (batadila). Ako karon pa lang nagtoon kon unsaon pagsulatbinisaya. Ania ang tipik sa maong sinulat ni Dr. Babor: (1) “Humot lagi ning imong perfume.” (Naa ba diay perfume nga baho?); (2) “Mainom ning imong tubig?” (Naa ba diay tubig nga ma-ub-ub); (3) “Mamaak ning imong iro?” (Naa ba diay iro nga manggitik?); (4) “Manungag ning imong kabaw?” (Ang mga

Aw diay! Ruel V. Pelone kabaw ba manilap o mamatid?); (5) “Mamatid ning imong kabayo?” (Dili manghapuhap ra.); (6) Inside Public Utility Vehicles when a passenger pays the fare and gives twenty pesos. All drivers use to ask: “Pila ning baynte”? (So, pila man diay ang byante? But the driver means pilay makuha sa byante. So, instead of saying this drivers prefer to exclaim a damn question: “Pila ning byante?”); (7) In many instances when I travel to Cebu through a fast craft, I always

hear a person seated next to me ask when the boat is already in midsea: “Bay, Cebu pod ka?” (Asa man diay ta ani padong?); (8) After one has taken an exam and asked by friends: “Unya pasar kaha ka adto bay?” The answer is: “Ay, sus, God knows ray nahibawo adto”; (9) This is common in the school campus when a student wants something to be photocopied and approaches the person operating the photocopying machine and make a polite request: “Pazerox ko.” (What if the operator will liter-

ally have the student’s face photocopied – for let’s say 50 copies?); (10) At home when grandma does not like the piece played in an FM station, she would shout “Patya nang radyo, dong” (Pwede diay patyon ang radyo? Uroy ug bunalan ug maso sa gisugo); (11) After an annoying brown out is gone, we commonly ask: “Ni-agas na ang gripo?” (Gripo ba ang moagas o tubig?); (12) In all sari-sari stores throughout the Philippines-not only in Visayan areas--a highly erratic advertisement is conspicuously displayed: “Ice Water for Sale.” (Is there really ice water? It could be acceptable if it is written this way: “Iced water for Sale,” or “Watered Ice for Sale.” But of course we are aware that this is not the case in the Philippines; it should be sabta /P10

The problem of unemployment The country is growing. It is true but it is not growing because of better leadership or whatever by the present administration but growing fast because of the number of new Filipinos. Birth control seems to have failed in its endeavor and needless to say, the number of people added to our population keeps on rising. It is beyond control although some effects may have taken place in the past years. Anywhere you go in the country are more people going around a majority of them have no jobs. As a result, there is extreme hunger in many homes especially in the countryside. The government is busy with other matters like establishing new projects to improve the lifestyle of

Think a minute… My younger son has always had a terrible fear of fast roller coasters. Those rides at amusement parks and fairs that zip around so fast that the people riding them scream the whole way. But recently, my son decided he was going to ride one no matter how afraid he was. He forced himself to sit next to me on the roller coaster, and I could almost hear his heart beating and racing he was so scared. To tell you the truth, that roller coaster was almost too fast for me! When the ride was finally over and we were leaving, my son was so happy and proud of himself. He kept saying again and again: “Dad, I conquered my fear!” One of the important

the people, constructions of roads and bridges and many more but it never had embarked on new ideas to create jobs for people. This scenario existed many years ago and remained a problem until now. Some of us are lucky to go to foreign lands where we find comfort and income but this represents the few while majority of us back home continue to suffer in existence without income. Leaders come and go, debating, talking, fighting, vacationing and many things that have no relations with hardships. The Philippines is not like other countries in the world where unemployed citizens get some kind of help from their governments. They are accorded with free medical, dental,

When one is jobless for some reasons and he reaches the age of 65, there is a welfare program of the government that allows them a monthly pension enough to sustain them of their daily needs. These things are strange in the Philippines. When one is poor, he has to provide

Run to your fear

secrets to success and happiness, which many people don’t know, is that on the other side of our fear is a much better life for us. It’s only when we face and conquer our fears that we get past them and are free to reach our potential. The great army general, George Patton, said: “Fear kills more people than death.” You see, death kills us only once, but fear kills us over and over again. “It’s better to face danger one time than to live in fear your whole life.” Our fears will just keep chasing us as long as we keep running from them. A wise man says: “Fear is a warning signal, not for us to close our eyes, but for us to open them wider, so we can face our fear head on to conquer and defeat it.” But

if we keep closing our eyes to our fear so we can just stay in our comfort zone, then we’ll end up “buried alive in our comfort zone,” and never really live life to the fullest. Someone said: “The biggest part of courage is

himself with food, shelter and medicines until the day he dies. Population in the country continues to skyrocket and will go on forever. And without employment, poverty will certainly rule in the lives of people. There is no more land for them to cultivate and competition in everything makes it even harder. Judging at our situation, it is easy to predict that in the coming years, there will surely be people dying in the streets of hunger. No food to eat. No medicine and doctor to run to. Just nothing but death. This is just horrible. And it seems the government is not prepared to meet this difficulty in life. Right now everything looks normal. unemployment /P10

having done it before.” Remember, there’s a first time for everything—whether it’s riding a bike, starting your own business, or public speaking. There’s no greater feeling of accomplishment and success than running right at your fear and coming out on the other side of it, knowing you beat it. So for your own success and happiness, you can ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart and take control of your life. Then, when you know that God Himself is on your side, there’s absolutely no one or nothing to be afraid of. With His love and power inside, you can run right through your fears to the great life He has ready and waiting for you. Just Think a Minute…

(DTI), commonly known as the Air Passenger Bill of Rights, states that air passengers must know their rights including the right to information before purchase, right to receive the full value of the service purchased and the right to compensation. Every passenger should be given time to check in, according to the bill. The same order states that a passenger must not be considered late or no-show and should not be denied to check-in, if he or she is within the air carrier’s cordoned or other designated check-in area at least one hour before the published Estimated Time of Departure (ETD), or within the prescribed time set by the carrier. Further, a passenger cannot be denied the right to board the aircraft without his consent. But in case of cancellation from the air carrier at least 24 hours before ETD, passengers should be notified beforehand and should rebook or reimburse passenger at the option of the latter.

Teachers are indeed the most valuable assets in our society and the key player in nationbuilding, particularly the human resource which is the greatest factor in boosting our economy. Moreover, this is the most indispensable contributions that educators have shared to our nation. Furthermore, works of the teachers are beyond what is prescribed by law because of the extra-curricular and civic activities which contributed to the welfare of the community and the country, most notable of which is when teachers guard the precincts and count the

votes during election. Hence, it is regarded as the highly reliable and dedicated public servants. In this light, the world salutes to the unsung heroes for their great achievements and contributions in molding the world from September 5 to October 5, 2012 with the theme: “My Teacher; My Hero”. Coherently, public schools celebrate schoolbased World Teacher’s Day on October 5, 2012 to culminate the celebration.

The PLGU engagement aims to influence the crafting of PLGU development plans that support poverty reduction, empowerment of poor communities, and implementation of social protection initiatives in KALAHI-CIDSS municipalities. The engagement will be funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB). AusAID and Kalahi-CIDSS Additionally, the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) will be funding non-prioritized KALAHI-CIDSS project proposals exclusively targeting the construction of elementary and high school buildings, and day care centers.

tax compliance will also be undertaken. We already wrote a letter to the Department of Education in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (DepEd-ARMM) asking help for the updating of personnel records, he further said. A personal appeal will also be made to the ARMM regional accountants, departments and agencies devolved to the ARMM, the Mindanao State University (MSU) main campus, and local government units (LGUs) for the proper withholding tax compliance, he added. In addition, coordination with the local counterparts of the Land Bank of the Philippines and the Development Bank of the Philippines will be continued with respect to the compliance of LGUs. A close monitoring of withholding tax remittances on infrastructure projects undertaken by the Department of Public Works and Highways, National Irrigation Authority, LGUs, and all implementing line agencies under the umbrella of the ARMM will likewise be carried-out by the BIR. Macarampat said BIR personnel will be mobilized to man the filing centers in the MSU campus, city hall, and provincial capitol to cater to the needs of tax-paying public this coming filing season. For January alone, BIR Marawi collected P50,906,108.18, up by P1,804,108.18 or 3.67 percent from the P49,102,000 goal for the month. The actual collection for the month is also higher by P12,840,188.95 compared the P38,065,919.23 collections it posted in the same month of last year. (APB-PIA 10/asf )

Iced Water, otherwise, you will lose your customers); (13) In beauty parlors or barbershops, this remark is common. When the customer finds that his/ her hair is still untrimmed right above the forehead he/she would

take the lead in giving tribute and salutation to the unsung heroes of their own community. Teachers therefore, deserved to have this celebration and recognition for the enormous contributions to the community where they served and to the nation as well. The vacuum that educators felt was filled with joys and happiness that indeed mentors are not neglected but given due recognition and importance as one of the most valuable resources in the country.

I wish our leaders think of the future of our country. They should study new things that sustain life say ten to twenty years from now. We need industrializations of foreign investors and introductions of new system to increase production in factories or yields in agricultural ventures. Leaders should refrain from engaging in too much bickering and laziness. Now is the best time to study the situation of our future, it should be now not tomorrow. We should learn the system of foreign governments that made them progressive and successful. We must invite investors from Europe, from America, the Middle East and from Asian countries. We must learn their style of existing. We must teach our youngsters the things to improve people, the need to improve all sources of income. We can improve our method of fishing for us to export the product of the high seas. Improve our agriculture, lumber, factories and everything. Right now we have people who are good in making guns but we send them to jail. Why not develop them into a giant gun manufacturing firm and export guns to other countries? (Ben-emata.com)

UES INITIATES THE CONSTRUCTION OF ITS SCHOOL COVERED COURT By Roel U. Riveral Officer In-charge Umagling Elementary School Malitbog District

Education is amongst the top priorities of the recent President Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III as embedded in Article XIV, section 5, Paragraph 6 of the Philippines states that “The State shall assign the highest budgetary priority to education,” to compensate the needs of every learning institutions despite of the meager resources of the country. Unfortunately, the fact remains that the budget intended would not cater all the needs of every school especially those schools situated in remote and fur flung provinces. Umagling Elementary S chool (UES), located in the heart of Malitbog,

Bukidnon is not exempted for the fact that these institutions don’t have yet the facilities to use in school programs and some related activities. But our quest for quality education is always flaming amidst of economic crisis. We firmly believe that quality education is not only visible on top of the roof or within the four corners of the classroom; instead a kind of educational institution that can really provide facilities that can be utilized to the needs of all children especially during school activities and programs. Believing that the children deserved to be pro-

vided with facilities that will protect them from the heat of the sun and rain during school programs and outside classroom activities; through this the teachers together with the Parent Teachers Association initiated a SCHOOL COVERED COURT without major source of fund. The ongoing construction of this project is the fruit of the joint of the effort of the teachers, parents, barangay officials, local government officials and strong partnership of our stakeholders. We always believe that no task is daunting with the euphoric support of our stakeholders.

MARINA-10 launches new Seafarers ID By Arjay S. Felicilda, News Editor

THE Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA-10) has launched the Seafarers Identification and Record Book (SIRB), Saturday, at the Capitol University in Cagayan de Oro City. SIRB was previously called Seaman’s Book, according to the Engr. Emmanuel B. Carpio, MARINA-10 regional director, who disclosed that along this particular undertaking, the agency is availing the services of the National Printing Office (NPO), Eastland Printink, Document Security Asia and Prooftaf, the company that produces the Bubble Tar. Director Carpio explained, a Bubble Tar, which is being added and sealed in the SIRB booklet, is a core technology behind the Bubble Seal. It is a 3-D identity token

SSS, DILG strengthen workers’ protection ILIGAN City - The Social Security System (SSS) has renewed partnership with the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) to strengthen the monitoring of businesses’ SSS compliance, as part of the pension fund’s campaign to protect its members from erring employers. The new agreement serves as basis in the issuance of business permits or licenses needed by employers to continue operating every year, explained SSS Branch Manager Cheryl Jariol. In an earlier arrangement between SSS and DILG dating back to 2001, employers and business operators were required to submit a Certificate of SSS Coverage and Compliance before they could secure a business permit or license, or “Mayor’s

Permit,” from their LGU during the business renewal period at the start of every year. Under the new agreement, SSS branches will provide their covered LGUs on the last business day of every year a list of registered employers, business owners or operators with SSS delinquencies. Employers with overdue SSS obligations will not be issued a Mayor’s Permit, although LGUs have the option to issue three-month temporary permits to give these businesses time to settle their delinquent SSS accounts. If the validity of the temporary permit has lapsed after three months and the employer is still non-compliant, no regular permits will be issued to the employer until the SSS delinquency

has been settled. Jariol added, this SSSDILG agreement reflects the government’s aim to ensure that employers uphold their obligations to workers. Employers also stand to benefit because this simplifies the process of renewing their permits, and ultimately promote a more business-friendly environment. Since SSS account officers conduct ocular inspection of employers in their assigned areas, we will also update LGUs of businesses discovered to be operating without SSS registration. This helps the concerned LGU to verify if they also lack business permits, said Jariol. LGUs, on the other hand, will give SSS branches a list of establishments with new or renewed business

permits, and another list of businesses granted temporary permits, not later than the end of February every year. The agreement, which took effect after it was signed last December 26, 2012, also provides for SSS participation in Business One-Stop Shops (BOSS) that LGUs set up during the business renewal period every January to help employers settle their SSS delinquencies. The state-run SSS currently has over 600,000 registered businesses. The Social Security law requires employers to report newly-hired workers for SSS coverage within 30 days, deduct contributions from employees’ salaries, and remit workers’ monthly premiums to SSS on time.

P4.6 M worth Liquid Quick Freezer turned over to TANBOFISA

The Department of Agriculture in coordination with the National Agri-Business Corporation (NABCOR) turned-over a Liquid Quick Freeze Machine worth P4.6 million to the Tandag Boholano Fishermen’s Association (TANBOFISA) last February 5 at the TANBOFISA Ice Plant. The Liquid Quick Freezer is a commitment of DA Secretary Proceso Alcala to the TANBOFISA when he visited the Province of Surigao del Sur on June 2011. The machine has a capacity to produce three tons of ice per day. The making of ice takes two hours and is done by batches with 16 blocks of ice weighing 8 kilos each produced per batch. The machine can also be used to freeze

agricultural products like fish, poultry and vegetables to preserve its shelf life. TANBOFISA operates a Barangay Food Terminal as well as an ice plant at the public market. According to Wilma Evangelio, TANBOFISA’s Business Manager, with their old ice making machine, they only get to produce 72 ice blocks weighing 25 kilos each per day which is not even sufficient for the needs of the market vendors in the market. She added that now that they have the Liquid Quick Freezer Machine, they hope that they will be able to meet the demand not just in the public market but also the entire city and also increase the income of the BFT. freezer /P10
