AGAYAN de Oro City – Posibleng mominus ang gidaghanon sa ‘hotel guests’, kung mobutang og night flights ang mga kompaniya sa eroplanong mogamit sa Laguindingan Airport, panglantaw ni Regional Director Butch Chan III sa Department of Tourism (DOT-10).

“I’m looking more on the attitude of our guests, with regards to room occupancies of our hotels. If airline companies would have evening flights, the tendency is they will not anymore stay overnight in Cagayan de Oro, matud niya. Ikaduha niyang gilantaw kung mag-operate na ang Laguindingan Airport mao ang serbisyong pangturismo nga kinahanglang palapdan ug palamboon kay po-

sibleng modoble usab unya ang gidaghanon sa mga dumoduong. Nasayran nga ang kasagarang airbus adunay 140 ka lingkoranan matag lupad. Tipik niana, matud niya, ang Cebu Pacific nga sa pagkakaron adunay 14 ka direct flights nganhi sa Cagayan de Oro matag adlaw. Iyang gipasabot nga sila sa DOT, wala lamang naghunahuna sa ’connectivity’. Ilang gilantaw usab ang maayong serbisyo aron

masinati sa mga pasahero ang kala-inan sa maong serbisyo. Atol sa tigom sa civil society sa dakbayan karong bag-o, si Director Chan miingon nga kung gusto sa Cagayan de Oro nga magunang destinasyon, kinahanglang sagubangon una ang problema sa ‘connectivity’, ilabi na alang sa mga tawo’ng adunay bikil sa panglawas. Mahitungod sa gitakda nga pagbukas sa Laguindingan Air-

CAGAYAN de Oro City – Stakeholders from Northern Mindanao have issued a strongly-worded manifesto asking the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) to defer the ‘soft opening’ of the Laguindingan Airport in Misamis Oriental scheduled for April 30, 2013. “We are concerned, this will compromise the safety of the airline commuters using this airport and adversely affect the economy of the region due to the cancellation of night flights,” said Arsenio L. Sebastian III, private sector co-chair of the Regional Development Council for Region X (RDC-X). Laguindingan Airport

is situated some 26 kilometers southwest of Cagayan de Oro and would serve Northern Mindanao and the Lanao areas. With a total area of 417 hectares, it currently has a 2,100 meter (6,888 ft.) concrete runway capable of accommodating mediumwide body aircrafts, such as the Airbus A320 on a 24/7 basis. The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) charged with the operations of the country’s domestic airports said, in a letter dated December 12, 2012 Laguindingan airport would be operated using Visual Flight Rules (VFR) pending the commissioning airport /P5

Collection of BFAR export fees at OSEDC starts this month

The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) at the One Stop Export Documentation Center (OSEDC) in Manila started implementing this month the collection of export fees based on Fisheries Administrative Order or FAO 233-1 and 233-2. This comes after the advice from the Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP) that the system for the payment arrangement is ready, said Amor Diaz, Head of BFAROSEDC. She explained that the technical problem on the release of a clearing account number between the LBP and the Bureau of Treasury (BTr) is now resolved. Due to inadequate manpower to collect fees from BFAR clients at OSEDC, the BFAR head office signed a

memorandum of agreement with the LBP as the collection agency of its export fees. This MOA was approved by the BTr. Prior to the MOA, the fees were not implemented. The said FAO covers fees to be paid for the export of certain aquatic products. The fee for aquatic wildlife captured or gathered in Philippine waters is at 0.20 percent of the export value, while those caught outside Philippine waters, captive-bred aquatic wildlife and imported species are exempted from the fees. Founder stocks sourced from the wild and their progenies produced in captivity and seed stocks sourced from the wild and grown for commercial purposes are imposed a .15 percent and

.20 percent fee respectively, based on the export value. Exporters of progenies of threatened aquatic wildlife produced by aquatic wildlife farms pay two percent of the export value, according to the FAO, while exporters of live tropical and ornamental fish will be charged one percent.

Early exposure of children to reading By JULIBEE L. DINGDING Teacher 1 Purok 1, Balagatasa Maigo, Lanao del Norte

WITH the implementation of the K+12 basic education program, it is imperative for parents to prepare their children on how to read and write. At the age of two, a child knows nothing but master the art of “visual.” He or she remembers what is shown to him or her. Reading is a complex cognitive process of decoding symbols in order to construct or derive meaning (reading comprehension). It is a means of language acquisition, of communication, and of sharing information and ideas, according to the definition of wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Like all language, it is a complex interaction between the text and the reader which is shaped by the reader’s prior knowledge, experiences, attitude, and language community which is culturally and socially situated. The reading process requires continuous practice, development, and refinement. Readers use a variety of reading strategies to assist with decoding (to translate symbols into sounds or visual representations of speech) and comprehension. Readers may use morpheme, semantics, syntax and context clues to identify the meaning of unknown words. Readers integrate the words they have read into their existing framework of knowledge or schema (schemata theory). Other types of reading are

not speech based writing systems, such as music notation or pictograms. The common link is the interpretation of symbols to extract the meaning from the visual notations. Currently most reading is either of the printed word from ink or toner on paper, such as in a book, magazine, newspaper, leaflet, or notebook, or of electronic displays, such as computer displays, television, mobile phones or e-readers. Handwritten text may also be produced using a graphite pencil or a pen. Short texts may be written or painted on an object. Often the text relates to the object, such as an address on an envelope, product info on packaging, or text on a traffic or street sign. A slogan may be painted on a wall. A text may also be produced by arranging stones of a different color in a wall or road. Short texts like these are sometimes referred to as environmental print. Sometimes text or images are in relief, with or without using a color contrast. Words or images can be carved in stone, wood, or metal; instructions can be printed in relief on the plastic housing of a home appliance, or a myriad of other examples. A requirement for reading is a good contrast between letters and background (depending on colors of letters and background, any pattern or image in the background, and lighting) and a suitable font size.

Ang ‘dawbe’ ug ‘matamata’ sa DOTC KARONG Abril 30, maghinay-hinay na kuno og abri ang tugpahanan sa mga eroplano diha sa dakbayan sa Laguindingan sa Misamis Oriental. Apan buot kini babagan sa mga nagpakabanang grupo o lungsuranon dinhi sa Amihanang Mindanaw tungod sa kakuyaw nga posibleng idulot niini ngadto sa mga sumasakay sa eroplano. Tiaw mo nga matamatahon lang ang pagtugpa unya sa eroplano atol sa pagbukas niini ngadto sa publiko kay wala pa man diaw kini igong ekipo nga sarang magamit aron magiyahan ang mga piloto aron kini makatugpa dinha sa tugpahanan. Mora ba og “dawbe diay” nga sistema. “Daw be diay” kung makahimo pagtugpa ang mga eroplano bisan og dili ka-klaro ang mga piloto nga tu-a sa kawanangan.

One of the great promises of God to His people mentioned in the Old Testament was to make them, the heads not the tails. The Scripture says that He is the same God yesterday, today and forever ( Hebrews 13:8) and this same promise holds still till this generation. That promise will only come to reality with the condition that is if we get connected with Him always, thus blessings upon blessings will follow. What I have never heard expressed is the condition upon which these blessings will come. Notice carefully the text Deuteronomy 28:13-14: The LORD will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the LORD your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never

Okay ra tingali na kung dagkog mata ang mga piloto o aduna ba kahay gi-hire ang taga Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) nga tigsalo sa eroplano. Unya kung dili kalupad, aw, mag-hire pud ang DOTC og tigtugpo. Ahay! Lupig pa man ang tabanog anang inyong eroplano! Kining atong mga eroplano labi kanang mga iggugubat, gikahadlokan gyud sa mga igsoon natong mga rebelde diha sa kabukiran. Matod sa usa ka rebelde nga kung aduna na gani

“Tora-Tora” o “Helikopter” nga ila pud gitawag og “langgam,” kalit kuno siya ug iyang mga kauban mangita og kataguan. Tubag sab intawon ko sa iya nga: “Hadlok diay mo pusilon bai?” “Dili,” dugang sa akong nahinabi. “Mahadlok mi madalahig kay kanang ilang ‘Tora-Tora’ ug ‘Helikopter’ kalit lang mahagsa bisan og dili na pusilon.” ••• Hinaut nga mapugngan pa kini sa sekretaryo sa DOTC nga si Mar Roxas. Ayaw dali-dali-a sir oi kay walay lami gyud ng mapingis ka sa kalipay. Maayo gyud ang dugay ug hinayhinay, di ba sir? Ayaw sab intawon ninyo gamita kanang proyekto sa gobyerno aron angkonon ug ipasigarbo nga kung wala kamo dili gyud madotc /P5

of having no other Gods besides me. John 15:10: If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. These commandments are the Father’s and were inherited by His Son. Even as the 10 Commandments are the rule of my home because I received them from Jesus to share with my Family, even He received them from His Father and are His Commandments. In the flow from Father

to Son our worship and honor of Jesus always flows back to His Father. Apart from this, It is the Spirit of Christ in us that keeps the Father’s commandments. Gal 2:20 and all of this flows back to the me of the first commandment which is the Ancient of Days, the Father of All. If we as a people have violated the first commandment and gone after other gods to serve them, however can we claim the promise of being the head and not the tail? our violation of this commandment will bring upon us not the blessings of Deuteronomy 28 but curse. It is not as a matter of trying to do what God commanded men to do but simply doing what He said. With God nothing is impossible. So it is possible to be head, not the tail.

Aw diay! Ruel V. Pelone Ambot kung unsa gyud ang gadali-an nga gikinahanglan man gyud nga usa kaadlaw human itugot mangampanya ang mga lokal nga mga kandidato, paka-ablihan man sab ang wala pa diay klaro nga Laguindingan irport. Nganong dali-dalion man nga dili pa man diay kaya sa mga piloto sa mga eroplano ang pagtugpa diha sa irport kay wala pa man diay kini “air navigation facilities.” Ang mahitabo Visual Flight Rules (VFR) o sa binisaya pa “matamata” ra ang gamiton. Aw diay!

Heads, not tails The New Generation Alex A. Podador at the bottom. 14 Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today, to the right or to the left, following other gods and serving them. The promise of being the head and not the tail was conditional upon a very big IF: “If that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God”. Since He is a jealous God, He hates idol worship. So what is the First Commandment? Exodus 20:3: Thou shalt have no other gods before me. This commandment speaks

Imbis ikalipay, nagproblema na nuon Sa wala pa magsugod niadtong Peb. 12 ang kampanya sa pagka senador alang sa piniliay sa Mayo 13, mora’g nakabentaha ug maayo kon itandi sa ubang kandidato sila si Sen. Loren Legarda, Chiz Escudero ug Grace Poe tungod kay kandidatokomon man sila sa duruha ka mga koalisyon, ang Team PNoy ug United Nationalist Alliance (UNA). Apan human sa proclamation rally sa Team PNoy nga didto himoa sa Plaza Miranda sa Manila ug sa UNA nga didto himoa sa Dakbayan sa Sugbo, mora ug naputos na hinuon karon sa problema ang tulo ka mga kandidato-komon sa duruha ka koalisyon. Ang hinungdan sa ilang suliran? Gibaharan ang tulo nga tangtangon sa listahan sa mga kandidato sa UNA

Lawom nga panglantaw Jesse E.L. Bacon II kon dili sila motambong sa mga sorties niini ilabi na kon walay panagbangi sa schedule sa duruha ka koalisyon. Wala untay suliran kon wa pa klaroha sa Team PNoy nga ang tulo ilang opisyal nga kandidato ug giila lang sila sa UNA nga ila usab nga guest candidates. Lisud gayud “mamangka sa dalawang ilog” matud pa sa usa ka sanglitanan nga tinagalog. Karon galabad na ang ulo sa tulo kay matud pa sa mga kadagkuan sa UNA

dili lang sila mosugot nga magpadala ug representante ang tulo kon dili gusto gayud nila nga personal silang motambong sa mga rali sa UNA. Niadtong proclamation rally gud sa Sugbo, misugot man lang ang mga kadagkuan sa UNA nga magpadala ug representante ang tulo. Sa maong rali gipadala ni Legarda ang iyang octogenarian nga amahan ug si Poe iyang gipadala ang iyang anak ug ig-agaw nga artista. Apan si Escudero

wala kapadala ug representante tungod kay wala siya masayod nga mahimo ra unta diay kon representante lang. Nagkanayon si Escudero nga sa diha nga wala siya tugoti nga magpadala ug usa ka video clip nga iya untang gusto ipasundayag sa iyang turno nga mamulong, wala siya tugoti sa mga kadagkuan sa UNA. Mao nga ang iyang pagtoo dili siya mahimong magpadala ug representante. Apan ang maong rason gitubag lang sa campaign manager sa UNA nga nasayod si Escudero ug unsa ka daku ang maong tigum sa Sugbo diin siya expected nga moadto. Karon giklaro na gayud sa kadagkuan sa UNA nga ang tulo gayud ang ilang nagproblema /P5

Women's rights champion to lead ARMM’s body By Apipa P. Bagumbaran

MARAWI City- Human Rights Lawyer Laisa Masuhud Alamia has formally assumed, as chair of the newly-established Regional Human Rights Commission (RHRC) in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM). This, after she was sworn in by acting ARMM Governor Mujiv Hataman, who said that Ms. Alamia’s appointment was signed by President Benigno Aquino III on February 7.

The RHRC was established last year following the enactment of the Muslim Mindanao Autonomy Act 288, otherwise known as the “ARMM Human Rights Commission Charter of 2012.” The acting ARMM chief said the subtleties of human rights in an area, like the region can be best tackled by someone with Alamia’s competence and background. “Her track record on human rights work in dif-


markets, illegal vendors, tricycles and other not-soroadworthy contraptions, parked container vans and large vehicles,” he added. Mr. Paras said the coastal highway being built to relieve traffic congestion from the city proper of Cagayan de Oro in the east to the west crossing over the Iponan River and exiting at Opol is not expected to be finished in another year’s time due to budget constraints. “Without a faster way to bring people to Laguindingan the advantage of Cagayan de Oro and its environs to the larger markets of Luzon and the Visayas will be negated,” he further said. What is the use of jet travel from Laguindingan to NAIA which only takes 75 minutes when it takes someone from the opportunity rich provinces of Misamis Oriental and Bukidnon at least 3-4 hours to get to the new location?” he asked. He further said, “the idea of developing Cagayan de Oro into the logistics hub of Mindanao will be a foregone conclusion if a premature opening of Laguindingan will just cause tons of lost opportunity.” Cagayan de Oro’s Lumbia Airport has a total area of 150 hectares and is located 183 meters (601 ft.) above sea level. It is the second busiest airport in Mindanao in terms of air passenger traffic and cargo volume. It is classified as a Class 1 Principal (Major Domestic) airport by CAAP and has a 2,454 meter (8,050 ft.) asphalt runway. CAAP -10 figures show it accommodated 12,590 flights; 1,301,502 passengers and 22,244,562 kgs. of cargo in 2011. Among the latter were high value agricultural commodities such as poultry products (day-old chicks, hatching eggs); vegetables, herbs and spices; fresh fruits; live crabs, shrimps and prawns, cut flowers and ornamentals, data from the

of air navigation equipment scheduled for completion by March 2014. If the April 30, 2013 opening pushes through as scheduled, CAAP Director General William K. Hotchkiss III said domestic airline flights will only be permitted up to 3:00 in the evening, which would result in up to 69 percent drops in passenger and cargo volume. This was related by Mr. Marlon G. Libot, president of the Communications Link for Emergency Assistance Network, Inc. (CLEAN) during the February 15, 2013 presentation to the stakeholders. “It is not only air and navigational safety that will limit the use of Laguindingan, but the notable lack of road and transport infrastructure especially for passengers coming from Cagayan de Oro, Bukidnon, Misamis Oriental and other provinces,” noted former Oro Chamber President Elpidio M. Paras. “Our vital road artery to the west from Bulua is hampered by a narrow corridor cluttered with roadside

ferent parts of Mindanao is commendable,” he said. Ms. Alamia is the former program manager and one of the founders of Nisa Ul-Haqq Fi Bangsamoro (Women for Justice in the Bangsamoro), a human rights group based in Mindanao actively engaged in women issues and rights advocacy with particular reference on Islamic views. She was also a program coordinator and board secretary of the Bangsamoro Lawyer’s Network (BLN), a member of the Mindanao

Human Rights Action Center (MinHRAC). Human rights cases in ARMM spring mainly from the on and off armed conflicts and prevalence of several armed groups in the region. Ms. Alamia said women empowerment and gender issues will be among the RHRC’s top agenda. She is joined in the RHRC by fellow lawyer Alikhan Abuat, who took oath on the same day as a commissioner.

discarded shells are exempted from the export fee, the Order said. Otherwise, products with other shells not considered as discard will be charged an export fee pro-rated to the export value. BFAR issued FAO 2332 after the stakeholder’s consultation led by the National Fisheries & Aquatic R es ources (NFARMC) held in June last year. This was attended by the Export Development Council (EDC) Philippine Exporters Confederation, Inc (PHILEXPORT), Home Accents Group of the Philippines, Inc. (HAPI) and other aquatic and fisheries export organizations. The EDC and PHILEXPORT had earlier opposed the imposition of the export fees, explaining that these will increase costs and make Philippine exports more uncompetitive. The new Order was issued in July last year and took effect 15 days after its publication. (Gelo Udaundo, PHILEXPORT News and Feature/jdelpf )

gusto nga motambong sa mga campaign sorties sa koalisyon diin mang dapita sa nasud kini pagahimoon. Ang nakapait niini kay matud pa sa Team PNoy ang tulo nasayod sukad pa sa sinugdanan nga personal silang gipili ni Pangulong Aquino nga mahimo niyang kandidato pagka senador ug ang tulo midawat sa maong kamatuoran. Unsa ang buot ipasabot sa Team PNoy? Nga dili ug dili mahimong makit-an ang tulo nga motongtong sa entablado sa kampanya sa UNA. Gani matud pa sa usa sa mga deputy campaign managers sa Team PNoy nga kon sulayan gayud sa tulo pagtongtong sa entablado sa UNA, kuwidaw sila kay hatagan gayud sila ni Pangulong Aquino sa cold shoulder treatment, pasabot nga dili na sila tagdon ni Aquino nga sama sila ug masakiton ug makatakod nga sakit.

Sa ila unyang pagpili asa gayud sila gustong mailhan nga midapig, ang ilang basihan niini por seguro mao kon mas siguro ba ang ilang kadaugan kon si Aquino ang mo-indorso kanila o kang Bise Presidente Jejomar Binay ba nga endorsement ang mas paminawon sa katawhan. Ang lisud niini mao nga pahimoon na sila sa karon pa lang kon asa gayud sila nga wala pa molutaw ug klaro kon kang kinsa gayud nga endorsement ang bug-at alang sa katawhan. Apan niining tungora, kon karon mohimo ang tulo sa ilang pagpili kon Team PNoy ba sila o UNA, sigurado ako nga mag Team PNoy sila kay dili ikalimod

nga mas kusog ug daku pa ang suporta sa katawhan alang kang Aquino. Ang lisud lang niini kon sa kaulahian mokunhod ang suporta sa katawhan kang Aquino unya mosaka ang popularidad ni Binay. Nasaksihan na kini nato niadtong piniliay sa 2010. Wala ganiy bisan usa nga nagtoo nga pildihon ni Binay si Mar Roxas ug si Legarda pagka puli-pangulo. Ang tanan nagtoo nga si Roxas na ang sunod bise president sa nasud. Apan nakugang na lang ang tanan sa diha nga si Binay ang migawas nga mananaug. Imbis malipay tungod sa ilang gikaibugang kahimtang, naputos na hinuon sa problema ang tulo ka mga kandidato pagka senador. Kalisud nga kahimtang. (Reaksiyon sa jelbacon@

The Report, she further said,

attempts to provide a comprehensive picture of the interlinkages of the PHE factors, how it can be addressed, and the challenges that comes ahead in pursuing integrated approaches to the issues presented. The SPPR is a periodic publication of Popcom that talks about different population and development issues and often used as inputs for program and policy development and other related advocacy initiatives at various levels. Since 2000, there have been five issues of the report published. (JCV/PIA/arjaysfelicilda)
