CAGAYAN de Oro City– –A member of the Citizen Armed Forces Geographical Unit in Misamis Oriental was killed Thursday evening by a still unknown gunman. The militiaman, identified as Rudy Ayuma, was reported to have been present with his brother during the New People’s Army attack over a month ago at Lantad, Balingasag. Ayuma’s borther, also a CAFGU regular, has remained missing since the attack. The NPA has blamed the military for the killing of Ayuma. Capt. Christian Uy, spokesman for the 4th Infantry Division based in Cagayan de Oro City, said the NPA pronouncement is only an allegation. Uy said they will look into the report and cooperate with the police in the investigation. The NPA alleged that Ayuma was held for a month by the military in suspicion that he was an NPA informer. “I don’t have details of his whereabouts at that time,” Uy said, adding that the reprot could be just propaganda information by the NPA.

He said some 1,000 workers will be employed during the construction phase which will take some two years to complete. Uy said the employment will be done through the municipal Public Employment Service Office. He added that the once the plant is operational there will be less workers needed but monitoring of conditions set under the Environment Clearance Certificate will continue in the barangay, sectoral and municipal levels. The FDC power plant sits on an 84-hectare property. In another development, Uy said the municipal government is now looking for a relocation site for residents in barangay Looc affected by the recent ground breaks caused by heavy rains in the past two weeks. Uy said the land area is soft and that the Mines and Geosciences Burea has declared the area a danger zone. He said the residents will no longer be allowed to stay in the area. Some 20 households are affected and will have to be relocated. Uy said some of the land owners have decided to plant bamboos and fruit trees in the unstable soil.

BRIGADA ESKWELA, A CAMPAIGN By Teresita G. Pamisa, School Principal 1 Camp One Elementary School

Brigada Eskwela is a yearly activity of every school community which is done two weeks before the opening of classes. All schools nationwide are encouraged to have this Brigada Eskwela in order to prepare the school for the new school year. However, with the limited resources of the school and the government, Brigada Eskwela is still made possible because of the help of the internal and external stakeholders of education in the respective community. During this maintenance week, everybody is expected to work hand in hand in order to prepare the classrooms doing minor repair, fixing electrical installations and making the school ground clean and ready for the children. The

teachers , pupils and parents are the main actors of this Brigada Eskwela, since they are the internal and external stakeholders of the school. Attendance are made daily to those who voluntarily offer their time, money and effort just to fix everything in the school in preparation of the opening of the classes. Aside from the manpower resources that the internal stakeholders have extended, there are also other donations in terms of financial and material resources from the external stakeholders that are made available to the school. Therefore , let us join hands in strengthening the implementation of this Brigada Eskwela Program for this year and for the years onward.

Col. Edmund Pangilinan,

commander of the 601st Infantry Brigade, and Col. Edgar Gonzales, chief of the 1st Mechanized Infantry Brigade, hoisted the national flag in the middle of the more or less seven-hectare BIFF camp. After the government forces sang the national anthem, Gonzales and Pangilinan led in offering prayers

for the fallen guerrillas and a soldier. Gonzales said his troops, who first entered the camp, recovered about 3,000 rounds of ammunition of various calibers and 300 kilos of blasting chemicals and components for making improvised explosive devices. Quoting local officials,

Gonzales said the camp had been used by renegades (BIFF) of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front as “springboard” for its bombing and extortion activities in the towns of Maguindanao and North Cotabato. He lauded the civilians, some of them relatives of BIFF leaders, for guiding See army, page 11

A Presentor’s Account on the Regional Assessment on their School-Based Management Level of Practice By Cleofe D. Jabagat San Isidro Elementary School San Isidro, Talakag, Bukidnon

As the Chairman of the Regional School –Based Management Evaluators was about to read the Total score garnered by the school. I really hold my breath and silently prayed that whatever the result

But aside from expecting a good slumber that was also a moment of relief to all of us because upon knowing that we’re given the task as chairman of an SBM principle. We already felt worried and anxious since we lack deeper knowledge about these School-Based Management Program. The job is like a yoke which had been installed on our shoulder. The long preparation, the long hours of studying, pondering and working for documents that we could used to support the SBM principle was so tedious and grudging. Though, many of the pertinent papers are already there but we still have to go over it and identify as to where and what

principles they belong. We had sacrificed not just one Saturday and Sunday, not just one evening to finished our papers but more. Our anxiety is apparently shown in our faces ,furrows appeared on our forehead and our eyes revealed our sleepless nights . Yet, those hard times were also unforgettable. The camaraderie we had , the teamwork and the laughter shared amidst the busy working environment uplift the spirits of each one of us . The ever supportive stakeholders were also there ,they generously shared their time and helped, through providing us the needed records or documents of their program they have initiated and implemented in the school which were geared towards improved learning outcome. Both internal and external stakeholders really took part in the success of the Regional Assessment on their SBM Level of Practice.

On the other hand, Hedcor Sibulan, Inc. operating the 42MW Sibulan A and B hydros, is sponsor six students from Davao del Sur. The Mindanao scholars are presently enrolled in different universities Davao and Davao del Sur, pursuing their chosen

course. It is laudable that the sponsoring Aboitiz companies have given independence to the scholars to choose their favoured courses. The scholarship covers full tuition fees paid by Hedcor with book allow-

Editorial ances and monthly allowance. Popular courses like commerce, education and information technology are the favorites of the scholars. The Aboitiz companies set guidelines to screen students who deser ve the scholarship assistance. Mostly, the recipients have high academic achievement. Those coming from poor families are favoured more as economic status weighs higher in the selection process. Tests during interviews are also, conducted. From the year 2000 when the noble program of the Aboitiz compa-

nies was conceived, 26 graduates were already produced and are now working here and abroad. What is more appreciable is the fact that other scholar graduates were absorbed by Hedcor itself. It is inspiring that aside from the collegiate scholarship program, Hedcor gives stipends to achievers. This is aside from construction of school buildings and refurbished classrooms that Aboitiz donates to impoverish communities from time to time . Hedcor had just turned over ‘Silid Pangarap’ – a learning center - to Davao this year, in partnership with the Aklat, Gabay, Aruga tungo sa Pag-angat at Pag-asa (AGAPP) Foundation. Aboitiz’s education, livelihood, health and environment programs for the host communities is its noble way of giving back their share of blessings to society.

How to fix Laguindingan ASAP

Stakeholders who depend on the Laguindingan Airport are appalled at the news that the Korean contractor who is installing its landing lights and navigational aids has petitioned the Department of Transportation and Communications for a five month extension which if approved, would mean the urgently needed equipment would be in place by November, 2014 at best. Urgent doesn’t quite cut it in describing the chaos caused by flight cancellations at the spanking new airport opened with much fanfare by the President himself last June 15, 2013 over the strident opposition of the business sector. “We cannot allow an extension until November, 2014,” said a former official of the Oro Chamber. “This will further affect our competitiveness and disrupt all planned conventions and conferences in the city. We cannot even count the impact to our visitors who have been inconvenienced by the cancellations; likely, they will shelve future plans of going to Cagayan de Oro or Region 10 at some point in the future.” The facts speak for themselves. Flight statistics at the Laguindingan Airport complied by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) show that for the 10-day period alone covering January 10-22, 2014 some 304 commer-

Hammer and Anvil Mike Baños cial flights or 56 percent of 546 scheduled flights were cancelled due to limited visibility brought by inclement weather and the lack of landing lights and navigational aids. Using the P1.5 million per round trip average operating expense of an Airbus A320 on the CDO-MLACDO route benchmark, airlines total losses for the 304 cancelled flights were approximately P228-million, affecting some 22,800 passenger or an average of 1,800 daily over the 12-day period. This is about the same amount of damage caused by TS Agaton and its aftermath to infrastructure (P273.62 million) and agriculture (P253.49 million) reported by the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) last Jan. 30, 2014. The Cagayan de Oro Chamber of Commerce and Industry Foundation, Inc. (Oro Chamber) conservatively estimates the cancelled flights cost Cagayan de Oro alone approximately P20-M daily in actual and opportunity costs. “This still doesn’t count indirect losses. A lot of

business opportunities were lost, meetings cancelled, additional travel expense to Davao or Butuan for many, rebooking charges for international flights, new bookings for many who needed to have other options, plus a lot of other intangibles,” said a former chamber executive who preferred to remain anonymous. The yearend report of the Department of Transportation and Communication on the Air Navigation System and Support Facilities (ANSSF) project component of the Laguindingan Airport Development Project (LADP) states that due to the June opening of the airport, the contractor is restricted to working only during night time, prompting them to request the DOTC for an extension of five (5) months. In short, had government not insisted on its premature opening, the ANSSF would have been in place and operational by June this year. But there is a way to fast track the installation of the urgently needed equipment if only the national government has the political will

to undo this mess: a supplemental contract which would provide incentives for the contractor and allow it to field additional workers and longer working hours. Thus, work can immediately start after 5:00 p.m. (or after the last flight) until just before the first flight the next day; and more personnel can be deployed for the civil works and for those jobs which can be done off the runway during daytime. The contract amount for the ANSSF supply project awarded to SKY-KR Consortium was P411,561,000.00 or 32 percent lower against the ABC of P609, 258,191.41 and 42 percent lower than the NEDA approved cost of P 708,137,138.00. Ergo, a supplemental contract providing incentives not exceeding the original NEDA approved cost of P708.14 million or even the ABC of P609.26-million can be considered a viable option given the economic losses now being incurred by the people of Northern Mindanao with the flight cancellations and loss of night and early morning flights. This would also be fair to the contractor since the Original C onstruction Schedule of 15 months from March 2013 to June 2014 was based on unrestricted working time condition. When the national government insisted on See fix, page 11

The real competition Think a minute. Did you have to compete with someone else to get the girl or guy you wanted? Whether we like it or not, competition is part of life. Usually there are other people besides you who want that job, scholarship, business, or title. But some people will stop at nothing to win. Whether it’s lying, cheating, or gossiping and destroying someone’s reputation. Yet when we compete only to win and beat the other person, it not only makes us bad losers, but also bad winners. That kind of competing produces a person with a bad heart and character, with self-centered

Think A Minute

By Jhan Tiafau Hurst

greed, pride, and envy. An important lesson in life is to learn to compete only against yourself. Then, whether you win or lose against others, you still win! Because all the time and effort you spent to work and improve only makes you a

better person who’s closer to reaching your potential. As one guy put it: “Trespassing is okay, if the boundaries you cross are your own!” So when we set good, important goals for ourselves, they work in two ways: we work on them, and they work on us. The real test of your success is whether you’re a better person than you were yesterday? Are your attitudes and character better? Are you a better husband or wife? A better father or mother? A better worker? You know, we can compete and win in our career and making money, but if we lose our good character by

being dishonest or hurting and using others, then we’ve lost the real competition and what’s important. The real measure of success is not what you HAVE, but what you ARE as a person. What kind of heart and character do you have? What kind of relationships do you have with other people? If you’ve allowed yourself to compete against others and you’ve done dishonest things or hurt people. Why not ask Jesus to forgive you today and start changing your heart and way of living? Then you can learn to compete only against yourself and win every time! Just Think a Minute.

Sickness

Special Gospel of the day: Matthew9:35-10:1.68(February3, 2014-Monday) Matthew 9:35-10:1.6-8-And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.And when he had called unto [him] his twelve disciples, he gave them power [against] unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give: This gospel tells us the hard works of Jesus Christ in His task in proclaiming the messages of God. Jesus never wasted times in performing His primary duty. In Galatians 6:9-And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. This means that we will strive hard and do the will of God constantly and consistently. No retreat, no surrender. In 1 Peter 2:21-for even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps. Therefore, work hard in building the kingdom of God here on earth and in this way, you are entitled to be called a genuine Christian and follower of Jesus Christ. Do not be lazy! On the other hand, Christ commissioned His disciples to preach and cure the sickness. Are you sick? Take note, there are tendencies that we are sick physically due to our sickness spiritually.

LBC branch in Zamboanga Sibugay robbed again

A M B OA N G A SIBUGAY – Two gunmen barged into a branch of a cargo forwarder LBC in the southern Philippine province of Zamboanga Sibugay and carted over half a million pesos, police said.

Police said the two assailants fled on a motorcycle after the robbery which occurred at noontime Thursday in the town of Ipil. “Initial investigation disclosed that personnel of the LBC branch were busy attending their clients when suddenly two unidentified men armed with caliber .45 pistol entered and at gunpoint declared the heist and forcibly took the cash money amounting to P513,871 and fled towards

unknown direction onboard their single motorcycle,” police said in a report. Last November, the same branch was also held up by three gunmen who managed to take away some P380,000 in cash. The branch was about to close when the gunmen barged and announced the robbery and threatened to shoot Jemiliza Agasita, the cash custodian, if she will not surrender the money. The gunmen also escaped on a motorcycle after the heist. Prior to that, two armed men also robbed another LBC branch in Buug town in Zamboanga Sibugay and escaped with over P180,000 in loot. The cargo for warder was manned by only three employees - Rutcher Pagayon, Allen Capas and Palen Banseloy – when the gunmen barged and forced them to open the vault. (Mindanao Examiner)

Rebels tending to farm amidst firefight By John Rizle L. Saligumba, Davao Today

D

AVAO CITY - A breakaway Moro guerrilla group in Central Mindanao said the main bulk of its forces were out of harm’s way of government military artillery shellings and that its forces were divided into engaging in gunbattles or planting and indoctrination of its mass base. Ab u M i s r y Ma m a , spokesperson of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) told Davao Today in a phone interview on Thursday night that “while some of our forces are engaged in gunfights with government troops, they are also busy planting palay and conducting Islamic orientation” within their controlled areas. “Wala kaming ginagawang masama. Nagtatanim kami ng mga palay, nagsagawa kami ng mga Islamic orientation (We are not committing any wrongdoings. Here we are planting rice and conducting Islamic orientation among villagers),” said Mama. The rebel spokesperson did not reveal their location but said that they were far from where the Philippine Army had been training their cannons since the offensive against them started. Mama said they were able to move away their forces from the direction of the goverment military operation, and claimed that they got wind of an Army “massive operation” seven days before the actual skirmishes started last Monday. They belie reports of heavy casualties. “There was a shelling of 105 and 155 (howitzers), airplane dropping bombs and helicopter attacks for 3 days. There only 7 of us who got wounded,” he said. The Army claimed to have recovered at least 40 bodies of BIFF fighters, including a minor, in its operations which started

5:00 am of Monday and that should have ended at 5:00 am today, according to 6th ID Commander, Brigadier General Romeo Gapuz in a television interview. “As of the moment, because of the skirmishes that have been happening, we are planning to put-up a request of additional 72 hours for us to finish,” said Gapuz adding that their request has to be approved by the peace panel. Mama said they were prepared to attack anytime if one of them “got killed” but mostly they only take “defensive actions” when government troops reach areas where they also have “forces” or when they enter rebel “territories.” “But when we are the one going conducting the operation, we send emissaries to civilians like last time when we attacked soldiers. We tell civilians to tell the soldiers to leave or else we will attack them. If the will not leave, we tell civilians to leave instead so they will not get caught in the cross fire,” said Mama. In September 2013 the BIFF said it warned that they would attack government troops and installations in the province of North Cotabato and called on civilians to evacuate. The group attacked the towns of Midsayap on Septemeber 24 and Tulunan on September 25 which forced more than 3,000 residentsto evacuate. Government authorities who appeared to have been caught off-guard linked the

attack to the then ongoing “Zamboanga siege” staged by forces loyal to Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) founding Chairman Nur Misuari. The BIFF denied the allegation. The BIFF was formed sometime after Ameril Umra Kato, who led the MILF’s 105th Base Command in the Maguindanao area, declined to yield to MILF directive to give up his post and head another non-military post in the MILF. The move was seen as an MILF action against him and his command after the government pressured the MILF to yield its three base commanders to account for their attacks in 2008 in the towns of Maguindanao, Lanao del Sur and Lanao del Norte. These attacks happened immediately after the Supreme Court ruled as unconstitutional the memorandum of agreement on ancestral domain, which was supposed to complete the round of agreements leading to a comprehensive political settlement with the MILF. With the fresh government offensive, Mama branded the Army “terrorists” and the “true spoilers” of the peace negotiations. “Hindi operation ng BIFF, operation ng sundalo na nagsabotahe sa pagpirma sa MILF-GRP annex sa framework na pinirmahan at nung nakalipas na mga taon. Kaya tingnan ninyo, kung may usapan, operation na po ng sundalo, pero sabi nila kami nag operation (It is not the BIFF who conducted military operations but the soldiers. It is they who plan to sabotage the signing of the annex on normalization

by the MILF-GRP as well as other agreements in the past. See, if there are talks, they conduct military operations against us but say it us who conducted an operation agains them),” said Mama. But Col. Dickson Hermoso, spokesperson of the the Army’s 6th Infantry Division, said they were on “calibrated police action” sinceMonday to “arrest” BIFF leaders charged of committing crimes in the area. “They planted roadside bombs, sniped at our soldiers, took school teachers as hostages, and in one instance, even beheaded a civilian captive. A few days ago, in the midst of the fighting, they commandeered a private vehicle and forcibly used it as a roadblock,” Miriam Coronel-Ferrer chairperson of the government panel negotiating peace with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, said in an emailed statement to the media. Coronel said that prior to the conduct of the operations both government and the MILF have “ensured the safety of civilians in surrounding areas” and that relief provisions have been on standby “to meet the basic needs of those who have been temporarily displaced.” Coronel said the “ongoing military operations were geared at degrading the BIFF’s capability to continue to cause harm to the government forces, civilians and the peace process.” The MNLF is the original organization of the Moro revolutionaries who sought an independent Islamic state See rebels, page 11

Daniel Padilla answers criticisms that his role in ‘Got To Believe’ is just ‘pa-cute’ Daniel Padilla said that his fans are his major inspiration when it comes to his career. “Number one na kinasasaya ko po ‘pag nakikita ko po ‘yung mga sumusuporta sa akin, ‘yun po ‘yung number one. Ako kasi po hindi po ako mapa-sweet-sweet na ganyan, ako po talaga rock ‘n roll lang talaga ugali ko. Pero ginagawa ko po, sinasakripsyo ko na po ‘yung sarili ko para lang mapasaya sila dahil ‘yung mga fans and supporters, ‘yan po ang nagbigay sa akin, sila ang nadlasa sa akin dito,” he said. The young actor stated

that he always puts his best foot forward in every project to make his fans happy. “Kaya ‘yan po talagang mahal na mahal ko po talaga sila. Minsan hindi po nakikita, hindi po kasi ako mapa-Twitter ganon pero sa shows don ko nilalabas ‘yung pagmamahal ko sa kanila.” Daniel further relayed that what he truly enjoys about his success is that he is able to help his family. “In-enjoy ko po kasi dahil din po dito ang dami kong natutulungan na parang kasiyahan ko na rin po ‘yung nakikita ko ang mga taong natutulungan kahit sa

clifford’s

mga simpleng bagay na nakikita kong napapasaya ko sila. Siyempre po ang Diyos po napakabait sa amin siyempre ang blessing na binibigay sa amin at ‘yung nanay ko, si papa rin po at mga kamaganak ko nakikitang masaya din po okay na po ako.” Despite the many supporters in his life right now, Daniel has also his fair share of detractors. The young actor reacted to negative comments that his role in his current soap is just “pa-cute.” “Talagang pinipilit ko po at pinagtratrabuhan ko at

ginagampanan ko po talaga na ginagalinan ko po lahat ng mga bagay na kailangan kong gawin. Sa ginagawa ko ngayong teleserye at hindi dahil sa sinasabing ako ay pacute lang don hindi po, mahirap po ‘yung ginagawa naming teleserye kinakailangan po namin magpakilig ng tao ganon po kasi madalas pong sinasabi sa akin na puro pa-cute lang po ang ginagawa ko ngayon sa teleserye namin mahirap po yun, so ginagawa ko po ‘yung best effort ko para magampanan lahat ng sinasabi sa akin ng mga tao,” he said.

Daily HOROSCOPE AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18) - You need to keep a tight watch over your credit card today -- otherwise, you may find that you end up way deeper in debt than you can afford! It’s too easy to make impulse buys you regret later. PISCES (February 19 – March 20) - Try to find someone who needs your help today -- it shouldn’t be hard! Your energy is terrific, but it needs to focus outward if you want to make the most of it. The karma is nice too. ARIES (March 21 – April 19) - You need to deal with something big and spooky and real -- so get on with it!

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20) - A friend comes to you with a deal or a suggestion -- and you should listen carefully! It’s better than it appears at first glance, but that takes some effort to discern. Your open-mindedness is rewarded. GEMINI (May 21 – June 21) - Your career is taking off today -- so make sure that you’re ready for the pressure! You may not feel that things are where they should be, but it should all resolve within a few days at the most.

See if you can get your people to follow your lead, as you are better off working with others than doing it all yourself.

LEO (July 23 – August 22) - A friend or colleague comes to you with a financial proposition -- but you should be wary, at least this time. It may be that the stars align later in the year, but for now, you should let someone else take the bait. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22) - Try not to be too critical of your friends or coworkers today -- though the temptation is sure to come at least once per hour! They are more fragile, and you need to accept imperfection. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22) - Your routine is anything but normal today -- between all these interruptions and dead ends, you’re lucky if you end up where you started out! The good news is that this phase ends soon. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21) - Your sweet side is out on display today -- so catch the eye of someone new or let your partner know how much you care about them. You should feel even better by the end of the day! SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21) - It’s one of those days when you seem to be immune to caffeine. The morning may slog on for too long, but you should eventually get yourself roused enough to tackle the day’s major business. CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19) - Your creative writing skills are tested today. That could mean you need to express yourself in haiku or that you need to stretch the truth a bit in order to spare someone’s feelings. Make it work!

in Mindanao. The organization later fragmented into several groups including the MILF also because of disagreements over the conduct of the peace negotiations with the government. The MNLF signed the 1976 Tripoli agreement and the 1996 final peace pact with the government, giving birth to the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao. Asked if they still have contact with any other Moro group, Mama confirmed. “Back when we were still in Camp Omar, Nur Misuari came and talked to Ustadz Ameril Umra Kato of us merging with them. The Ustadz said if they decide to join us, we see if they are qualified but if we are to join them, the Ustadz said no way,” said Mama. Mama said that their stand may be the same with other groups pursuing an independent bangsamoro (moro land) as such that a “merging” may indeed happen. “We call on the members and the leaders of the BIFF to put down their arms and be part of the process. We ask them to listen to the plea of their own brothers and sisters to give peace a chance,” said Coronel. But for Mama, their resolve to achieving this end “is only two.” “For us it is only victory or martyrdom,” he said. (John Rizle L. Saligumba/ davaotoday.com)

Gonzales said it was a well-fortified camp difficult for ground troops to penetrate. “Our air assets destroyed most of the fortification,” he said, adding that many of the running trenches were

paigned against what it termed as the “premature opening” of the Laguindingan Airport. At the time, the focus of the chamber’s opposition centered on the VFR (Visual Flight Rules) operation of the new facility which would only be operational from 6AM to 6PM thereby effectively disallowing early morning or late evening flights. Compared to a high of 28 daily flights at the old Lumbia Airport, there has only been a maximum of 21 flights allowed daily from Laguindingan Airport. The cancellation of night flights has constrained the shipping out of high value seafoods and vegetables which need the night flights to link to early morning flights to their markets overseas. However, due to the DOTC and the CAAP’s insistence that the Laguindingan was an all-weather airport, they failed to allow for the wholesale cancellation of even daytime flights due to the limited visibility which would have not been a constraint had the installation and commissioning of the runway lights and navigational aids been from page 1 implemented as originally “happy Buddha”. scheduled by the contractor.

Earlier, the BIFF spokesperson, whom the military believed was hiding in Cotabato City or other areas of Maguindanao, had repeatedly denied one of the BIFF leaders was slain. He said Hassan Indal, alias Tambako, one of BIFF founding chair Ameril Kato’s lieutenants, has been ejected by the BIFF leadership due to his unIslamic activities. Tambako led the campaign against government forces in Maguindanao last year which led to the evacuation of about 50,000 Moro people. (PNA)

Wishing you love peace and prosperity this Chinese New Year. Greetings from:

many of us will try to find ways to reduce our electric consumption and thereby cut our electricity costs and pay less to power firms. A budding entrepreneur, Maria Carina B. Rodriguez, of Krus Na Ligas, Quezon City, a former president of a Rotary Club from Pasay City, offers an alternative. In her Facebook account, Carina is inviting everyone to use portable solar energy kits which can be used to power electric bulbs, mobiles, tablets, cameras and other electronic gadgets. She says she has been using one of these kits for a year now, after her electrical connection was cut off by Meralco due to a dispute in “differential billing” (she was being made to pay for electricity she never consumed). Those interested to buy the kits, or, better yet, to do business with her by acting as her agents or distributors, you can call her directly at 09265833014. You may also want to visit her Facebook page. I understand she can also share paper bag making business with interested parties, as she is currently supplying big department stores in Metro Manila. -oooJESUS IS THE NAME OF GOD: I have a question: what is the name of God? This is quite tricky, because many will say that God is known by many names and they would be correct. Among these names are those found in the Book of Revelation, namely, the seven names that were used to address the seven churches in Asia, as well as the names given to Him in the Old Testament (“the God who commands armies”, and the like). But then, is there any specific name by which God is named, by Himself of course? Some may answer that it is “Jesus”, because that is the name given to the boy that was conceived and given birth to by the virgin (Isaiah 7:14 and 9:6 and Matthew 1:18-25 and Luke 1:31), and this maybe right because, indeed, Jesus is God. But then, even Jesus recognized that God has His own Name. What is this

Name of God that Jesus, our God and Savior, recognized? This is found in Jesus’ prayer in John 17: 11-12, which says: “Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one. While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me…” Clearly, the name of God is Jesus! -oooREACTIONS?

2 journalists, soldiers hurt in Maguindanao IED blast; Army hunting down suspects By Noel Y. Punzalan and Edwin Fernandez

CAMP SIONGCO, Maguindanao––The military here has launched a massive manhunt against two suspected members of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) who set off an improvised roadside bomb Saturday morning in Datu Saudi Ampatuan, Maguidanao that hurt two journalists and 10 soldiers and civilians. Army Major Dante Gania, 6th Infantry Division civilmilitary operations chief, said the blast occurred at about 7:45 a.m. in Barangay Lower Salbu, Datu Saudi Ampatuan, Maguidanao. G an i a i d e nt i f i e d t h e wounded journalists as TV-5 reporter Jeff Caparas and cameraman Adrian Bulatao who were on board a TV network vehicle along with an Army truck when the improvised bomb exploded. Both are in stable condition but sustained multiple shrapnel injuries, according to Gania. Col. Dickson Hermoso, speaking for the 6th Infantry Division, said the convoy, composed of 2nd Mechanized Infantry Battalion soldiers, a civilian pick-up truck and the TV-5 vehicle, was heading toward Datu Piang when the incident happened. Hermoso said two helicopters took the victims and airlifted them to Shariff Aguak where the Maguindanao provincial hospital is located. The IED blast was believed part of the diversionary tactics of the BIFF members who suffered heavy casualties in fighting with government forces that began Monday. At least 52 BIFF members and a soldier were killed and about 30 others wounded in the sporadic skirmishes. Hermoso said soldiers were running after two BIFF members who were seen by witnesses as among those who planted a bag at a roadside and detonated as the convoy was passing by. Following the incident, more checkpoints were put up in Datu Saudi Ampatuan and Datu Piang, especially along the routes leading to military camps to avoid similar incident. (PNA)
