A political and economical watershed? Greece, Greece, European Union,Greece again and no ending. Greek banks re-opened amid effort to reboot economy. Yes, they have re-opened after a three-week shutdown that saw the country plunged into financial chaos. However, capital controls are to remain in place, with taxes set to shoot up. From last Monday (means to say during one single week), Greeks were able to withdraw up to 420 EURO ($465) at once each week the same amount possible as during the shutdown, but without the ordeal of having to line up every day for 60 EURO. These are daily more or less 3,000 Pesos. Try to imagine how to survive if you are staying in this European country... . A block on money transfers out of the country and on the opening of new accounts is to remain in place. “Capital controls and restrictions on withdrawals will remain in place but we are entering a new stage which we all hope will be

one of normality,” Louka Katseli, the head of the Greek banking association, told the Greek nationalSkai Television. Yes, without hope, you really might get lost in Greece nowadays. Many citizens left already to other European countries just to start a new survival. Meanwhile, the Greek government was expected to make a 4.2 billion Euro payment to the European Central Bank (ECB) today (Monday, July 20 while writing this piece!). The repayment is possible after the European Union granted

Athens a short-term loan of 7.16 billion Euro on Friday last week. That amount will also make possible a payment due to the International Monetar y Fund (IMF), which has been outstanding since June. At the same time, Greeks are having to get used to a tough fiscal package, with further austerity. The level of financial hardship the new reforms are expected to place on the Greek people have caused a split within Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’ Syriza party. Tax soars on variety of items. Greeks will now have to pay 23 percent in valueadded-taxes (VAT) on a whole range of items, from cocoa and sugar to condoms and funerals. However, VAT sales taxes will be reduced on certain products, such as medicine, books and newspapers. Anyway, the tough situation is getting tougher, especially for those living on the verge of ruin and madness. German Chancellor An-

gela Merkel - who now says a Grexit from the eurozone is off the table - maintained her government’s tough line on debt relief for Greece. She said a “classic haircut” reduction of 30 to 40 percent of the country’s debt was not possible “in a monetary union.” However she did not rule out a “voluntary writedown for private creditors, extended maturities and lower interest rates.” Merkel has been overloaded already with tons of criticism. And not only she! Technical teams from the hated troika of creditors representing the EU, IMF and ECB - are expected in Athens in the coming weeks. And millions of Europeans are asking: is this now the political and economical watershed for Greece, the EU and the whole globe? I guess - not yet!

and during those frequent visits, she managed to ‘convert’ my father. My father was baptized a Catholic but he never went to church except when he got married to my mother and when his children were baptized. Dona Aurora convinced my father of his errors. Soon my father was again regularly attending church. To celebrate my father’s return to the fold, Dona Aurora gifted him with an autographed bible and a rosary. The following morning, while we were having breakfast, the phone rang. “It’s for you,” Fer said. It was Ninoy at the other end. He greeted me profusely as if he had personally known me all his life. And then he invited us for dinner which I gladly accepted. At the Bisuteki, Ninoy, Fer and I were huddled while the wives – Cory, Erie and Mira - had their own woman talk. I could overhear the wives discussing where to go for bargain dresses. Ninoy was practically non-stop. He talked about what was happening here, there, everywhere. But most of all, he talked about the Philippines. At one point, He commented on his propensity to talk. He said

Ignacio Bunye apologetically: “Pasensiya ka na. For 7 years and 7 months, I had nobody to talk to.” Of course, that was an understatement. Articles written about Ninoy’s long solitary confinement in Laur, Nueva Ecija describe how the moments of solitude brought him in closer communion with God and nerved him spiritually for the struggle that lay ahead. After dinner, Ninoy asked if we would like us to join him for coffee at his home. I readily accepted. At Newton, we picked our discussion where we left off. Before parting, Ninoy autographed a copy of book which he was giving away to friends. It was entitled “When Two Dictators Meet.” That was the first time I would meet Ninoy up close. The second and last

time I would see him again was two years later. I was among thousands who lined up for hours to pay their last respect as Ninoy lay, still wearing his bloodstained clothes. Butz Aquino I knew Paul Aquino from our Ateneo ROTC days but I have never met his brother Butz. The first time I saw him Butz up close was at Edsa. Tanks, commanded by General Artemio Tadiar, were rumbling towards Camp Crame to crush General Ramos and Minister Enrile. The tanks were blocked by a phalanx of civilians several feet deep. My elder brother (Alfredo Jr) and I must be somewhere in the third row. From below, we could see Butz Aquino atop the lead tank, pleading with General Tadiar, not to proceed. General Tadiar merely shook his head. Tadiar was just following orders. Using a bullhorn, Tadiar gave the crowd an ultimatum to disperse. Nobody moved. After a while, Tadiar motioned the tank pilot to move forward. The tank engines roared. Butz was still atop the lead tank. I crossed myself and said: See bunye, page A13

During the election period in 2010, the government privatized the operations of the Geothermal Plant in Davao, Pacana said. He said that with the presidential election approaching in 2016, the government is selling the STEAG Power Plant power generation contract. Although Pacana did not say the reason why the sale is taking place during the election period, he urged the power consumers to stop the sale through a Mindanao-wide signature campaign. “We are targeting a million signatures, which would be submitted to the Joint Congressional Committee to express the people’s disapproval of the privatization scheme,” Pacana said.

Miriam: Probe ‘Pamana’ killing Editorial: e-mail: mindanaodailynews@gmail.com • Advertising: e-mail: mindanaodaily.ads@gmail.com Contact: 0917-7121424, 0947-8935776

SENATOR Miriam Defensor Santiago on Thursday urged her colleagues to investigate the killing of Pamana, a Philippine eagle found shot dead in a protected area in Davao Oriental barely two months after it was released into the wild. Santiago, sponsor of the treaty on the ASEAN Center for Biodiversity at the Senate, will file a resolution on Monday, calling for an inquiry, in aid of legislation, on the death of Pamana and risks to endangered Philippine

species in protected areas. She said: “There is a disconnect between the fact that Pamana was killed in Mount Hamiguitan, and the fact that the mountain range is a protected site. If we cannot protect wildlife in what we dare call protected areas, what kind of protection are we providing?” The Mt. Hamiguitan Range Wildlife Sanctuary in Davao Oriental was declared a World Heritage Site in June 2014, with the UNESCO citing the area as an important habitat for

the critically endangered Philippine Eagle. The Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF), a nongovernment organization, released Pamana in the area in June, two years after taking the bird in captivity while rehabilitating it for bullet injuries sustained on April 2013. On August 16, the PEF launched search efforts for Pamana, after the bird’s tracker signalled its death. The group found Pamana only a kilometer from the site of the bird’s release,

with bullet wounds that are believed to be from an air gun. This is not the first time Santiago called for a Senate hearing on the killing of a Philippine eagle, which the International Union for the Conservation of Nature considers a critically endangered species, or at extremely high risk of extinction in the wild. In 2013, she filed Senate Resolution No. 342, calling for an inquiry on the death of Minalwang, a Philippine eagle also shot dead months

after being released into Mt. Balatukan Range in Gingoog City. She also filed S.R. No. 1347 in May, calling for an investigation on the impact of kaingin and other prevalent forest activities on the dwindling Philippine eagle population in the forests of Samar Island. Both resolutions have not been acted upon by the Senate committee on the environment and natural resources to which they have been referred. “We must, on the one

hand, empower local government units to strictly guard protected areas, and, on the other, make administratively liable local officials who grossly neglect to implement laws concerning protected areas,” the senator said. Santiago remains on medical leave due to her lung cancer, stage 4, but continues to perform her functions as a senator by filing bills and resolutions. She announced in July that she intends to join the presidential race in 2016 with her cancer in check.

Groups cite significance of Laudato Si to PH food, agriculture FOR the first time since Pope Francis issued his game-changing encyclical Laudato Si, church groups, environmentalists, farmers and indigenous peoples’ organizations discussed and analyzed the papal encyclical’s significance specifically on the country’s food and agriculture. The groups view Laudato Si as the Pope’s commentary on the real and unfortunate state of the natural environment – “our common home.” They agree with the Pope’s call to re-examine our human relationship with one another, our drive for over-consumption and our relationship with the environment. They emphasize the need for a new,

radical way of thinking and behaving. Going forward, the groups recommend for new ways of responsibly caring for nature to ensure our own survival, starting with a more eoclogical food and agriculture system. “Technology has played a key role in reinforcing wealth concentration and societal inequity, as shown by the growing control of a few corporations over global food and agriculture. The Pope is opposed to technologies that are profit-driven and industry-directed that may have direct or collateral damage for Mother Earth and her citizens”, commented Silvia Ribeiro, Latin American Director See groups, page A13

AFTER exposing the illegal sale of products banned by the government for health and safety reasons in Makati, Manila, Pasay and Quezon Cities, the EcoWaste Coalition has turned its sights on Marikina City. In an urgent report submitted to Mayor Del de Guzman and City Health Officer Dr. Alberto Herrera, EcoWaste disclosed the unchecked sale of products banned by the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) at the Marikina Market Mall, which is only a stone’s throw away from the Marikina City Health Office. Based on market surveillance conducted on August 20, the group found several general merchandise stores selling unregistered insect sprays and mosquito coils that have not passed the

FDA’s safety and efficacy assessment. “Our latest investigation shows that the sale of unregistered insect killers is rife not only in Baclaran, Divisoria and Quiapo, but also in other bustling retail centers such as the Marikina Market Mall,” said Thony Dizon, EcoWaste Coalition’s Project Protect coordinator. “The ubiquitous presence of these contraband goods in the local market is deeply alarming and should trigger a metro-wide crackdown to cripple such illegal trade,” he said. As per EcoWaste’s market monitoring, the following unregistered insecticides in aerosol cans are being sold in Marikina: Baolliai, Big Bie Pai, Sun Universe Frog King, Tangshi, Tianshi and Txaksi.

Death of PH eagle shows govt failure to protect biodiversity, says green group By DEE AYROSO, Bulatlat.com

THE Kalikasan People’s Network for the Environment (Kalikasan PNE) said the death of the Philippine eagle Pamana exposed government’s “low priority” in protecting the country’s endangered species and forests. Pamana, a three-year old female Philippine Eagle (pithecophaga jefferyi) was found decomposing with a bullet wound in the chest on Aug. 16 in Mt. Hamiguitan, Davao Oriental, two months after it was released into the wild. The eagle was released on June 12, after two years of rehabilitation by the Philippine Eagle Foundation, which rescued her in 2012, as an eaglet found with two

bullet wounds. “The demise of Pamana demonstrates how grossly incapable our government’s biodiversity conservation program is, and how lacking the environmental education is among local communities that should be the state’s primary partner in protecting our endangered Philippine Eagles and addressing wildlife poaching in Mt. Hamiguitan,” said Clemente Bautista, national coordinator of Kalikasan PNE. The group decried the lack of funding and manpower in the implementation of laws meant to protect biodiversity, educate people and enjoin their participation, such as the Wildlife Resources Conser-

vation and Protection Act, or Republic Act 9147, the Mt. Hamiguitan Range and Wildlife Sanctuary Act, or RA 9303, and the National Environmental Awareness and Education Act, or RA 9512. Mt. Hamiguitan was declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in June 2014. “Despite the declaration as a world heritage site of Mt. Hamiguitan, the site where Pamana was released, we still do not have enough manpower to secure an area of such globally important status,” said Bautista. Aside from poaching, Bautista said “the Aquino government continues to

allow logging and mining concessions in the area.” “While wildlife shooting has been a constant threat to 90 percent of the eagles released into the wild by the PEF, the worsening destruction of their habitat put them in this perpetually threatened state in the first place,” he said. Bautista cited a 2010 report by the environmental network Panalipdan Mindanao which exposed that a Chinese mining firm, Philippine Youbang Mining Corporation (PhilYoubang), has a mining permit and an ongoing logging operation in the area. “In Panalipdan’s report, Philyoubang’s operations have damage d s e cond See eagle, page A13

HIGAONON TRIBE OF ALANGILAN By MARICRIS J. TAYONG

This tribe is located at the Upper portion of Barangay Siloo, Malitbog, Bukidnon. Where the means of transportation is walking and horse – back riding. But today, I could say that is very different. It is considered as the transition period of this tribe. From being “NAÏVE”, to a modernized and socialized group. It is a dream comes true for them. No longer aloof and are more willing already to share their thoughts.

We could not deny that the government projects that reach in this place motivates them to become what they are now. Farm to market road, the Dryer that serves as the Basketball Court, New School building and additional National paid teacher, and the resent project of Electrification of the Sitio. These are only some of the projects that they enjoyed that made reaching the place become easy. We could ride motor or even four-wheel car. But we could not also deny that in the past few

weeks, there was an incident that shaken the area. For some, the situation arouses the hidden emotion of fear that leads them to decide to transfer to other Barangay. Living their “Uma” “Sakom” bringing with them their school – aged children that greatly affects to the school enrolment and some of them decided to sale their lots. Yet, some of them also stand firm and fight for their rights. They show their pride not to leave because for them it was a challenge. By their FAITH to “MAGBABAYA”, they are determine that something

going to happen that would ease their discomfort. The police visibility together with the Army ignite their courage and eagerness not to move out. From being fearful and hesitant to becoming open-minded and firm. Most of them cooperates the authorities in order to solve the problem. The place is almost back to normal. They do their daily routines embracing

their own beliefs, costume and traditions. Some of them had their “Pamahandi” and “Panalangin” during harvest season. Others perform their rituals to drive away the bad influence. It is so being apart to them in celebrating their “pride”. Having “Panampulot” with them is a nice experience. Today the tribe is hopeful that the things they enjoyed today is not the end, but the

new beginning of open opportunities that comes their way. Also the discomfort and undesirable feeling they felt would come to an end with the help of the Government, Government Officials and Authorities in solving the problem. The Tribe are thankful to the people who in one way or another helps in show-casing the life of the HIGAONON TRIBE OF ALANGILAN.

Points to remember in leading the organization By Junalyn Beñas Pulot Licoan Elementary School Licoan, Sumilao, Bukidnon

Leaders play crucial role in an organization. True, he takes key on driving his team towards their common goal. But on walking their way towards there, he should think how he could entice his subordinates to go with him in reaching their targets. Leader should know that his authority must workout with the varying people personality. It is because a leader is not just a leader of one but of several people. It does not mean that what is okay to one is just fine with another. Leaders should realize how diverse an organization is, and how many personalities he has to face. The best thing to overcome this is learning who his subordinates are. He must be able to identify their skills, because it is a way to make the organi-

zation more productive; their strengths and their limitations, so that he could measure the span of how they do and when they could possibly stop; and their individual goals, for him to be knowledgeable about what they want and what are their plans as well. There is a long way to go before knowing fully about subordinates. The important thing is he is making his people realize that each of them are im-

portant and a great need to accomplish their overall task. One thing to remember is to let them know that there is no greater and higher than each one in the group and a collective effort is the significant thing that will make them successful. Leadership indeed is not just all about the leader and goals, but as well seeing to it that every contributor know that he is important in the organization.

School-based Management for 21st Century Education By Junalyn Beñas Pulot Licoan Elementary School Licoan, Sumilao, Bukidnon

Education is advancing due to the fact that there is a need for elevation, since schools have started embracing the changes brought about by modern technologies. The need to push higher is also the reason behind the creation of School-based Management. School-based management is an organizational approach that involves expanding of school responsibilities and authority for the improvement of school performance. It provides mechanisms for the introduction of new approaches to education that result in enhanced outcomes and that better fill the needs of the local community. The implementation of SBM represents a fundamental and systemic organizational change to increase the presence of four key resources: power, information, knowledge and skills, and performance-based rewards. Decentralization of power is one main focus of school-based management. Power is shifted most often from the central administration to a group. This group might be composed of administrators, teachers, parents, community members or students. Power can only be decentralized if assigned people have access to information needed to come up good decisions. In the private sector and public education, only the top positions of the organization have much access to these pieces of information. Knowledge is also a key resource. Three kinds of knowledge and skills are important to decentralized management. First, employees need training to enhance their job skills and be a good contributor to the organization. Next, they need teamwork skills to participate effectively in problemsolving, decision-making and communicating. Finally, employees need organizational knowledge such as budgeting and personnel skills, understanding of the environment and strategies for responding to changes in the environment. Rewards is also a resource serving a key of SBM. This part allow organizations to reward employees for the knowledge and skills they possess. The creation of SBM is to direct an organization to improve performance. It is possible much if this approach is accompanied by organizational changes that enhance the information, knowledge and skills of participants that align the reward system with clear desired outcomes.

Your are chosen to becomeproductive Special Gospel of the day (August24, 2015-Monday) Matthew 1:18-24- Then Joseph her husband, being a just [man], and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privately. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shall call his

name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall “call” his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: This gospel reminds us about the courage and bravery of Joseph

to take the great responsibility as the “El Salvador” of Mary from shamefulness. Look, Joseph never resisted from the instruction of God for him to fulfill since he is very obedient to God. This is our individual calling to protect anyone from danger and to ensure that this person will have a better future. You are accountable to the progress and downfalls of everyone. You are called to save others like Joseph. He was an ordinary man and called to do an extra ordinary thing for us to be saved. Be sure

that his will is done and fulfilled on this earth. You are called to become an implementer. You are called to make things happen. You are chosen to become productive for the welfare of others. You are born for a great reason to do and complete on this earth.

Gigaquit SLP program participants’ federation harvests 2,000 kilos milkfish Surigao del Norte -- The program participants of the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) in the municipality of Gigaquit, Surigao del Norte harvested on August 20-21, 2015 around 2,000 kilograms of milkfish, bangus in local dialect. The bangus production is one of their livelihood projects initiated by Pantawid Pamilya partner beneficiaries, assisted by the SLP of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). The 220 members of the Gigaquit SKA Association Incorporated were all excitement as they harvested bags/ sacks of milkfish from their one (1)-hectare fish pond, rented for only P10,000/ year from a private owner. SLP regional coordinator Roy R. Serdeńa said that the bangus production project is just one of the

several business ventures of the federation. “They also operate other livelihood projects such as poultry, hog raising, grocery store, and others,” he added. Serdeńa also disclosed that with the harvest, the federation is expecting to generate a gross income amounting to P200,000.00 or more. “During their first harvest last March 2015, they were able to harvest around 1,200 kilograms of bangus, and at this time that harvest will be doubled,” he said. The said livelihood project was also able to provide employment opportunities to other Pantawid Pamilya partner-beneficiaries in Gigaquit who were hired for the operations and maintenance of the fish pond. Some out-of-school youths were also hired for the two-day harvest.

Catering SEA-K associations from the nearby municipalities in Gigaquit such as Santiago, Jabonga, Bacuag, and others ordered/ bought the hundreds of kilos of fresh milkfish at a lower price. The regional management has also linked the federation to several hotels and restaurants in Butuan City as costumers. Other Program recipients bought kilos of milkfish at cheaper price which is P100/ kilo, which they sell to the market at P140/kilo. With this, they get an additional income of P1,400 in just a day after buying 10 kilos direct from the livelihood project site. In a quick interview, 46-year old Alfreda E. Verano, active member of the federation, shared her joy of their fruitful harvest. “Kalipayi gajud namu nga

hamok amo harvest kuman, nakita na gajud namu ang amo paghago ug sakripisyo sa pila ka buyan (We are

very happy that we have months),” says Alfreda. many harvest today; we get “Pinaagi sa among makita to see our hard work and aning bangus, madungagan sacrifices for how many See program, page A13

“This is it.” But still nobody moved. After what seemed to be an eternity, the roaring of the tank engines stopped. Another twenty minutes later, Tadiar (Bless his soul.) gave the order for the tanks to turn around. Everybody was cheering and crying. Years later, when Butz and I were both serving in Congress, I recollected that incident with Butz. With characteristic bravado, Butz said (touching his throat) “Oh, yes. My balls were up to here.” Note: You may email us at totingbunye2000@gmail.com.

Erosion, Technology and Concentration (ETC) Group. The ETC Group is an international civil society organization that monitors new technologies. The group hails the encyclical for its stinging critique of inequality, greed, corporate control and profit-driven technologies that destroy the environment and threaten the seeds and practices of peasants such as sterile seeds or “Terminator technology”. Ribiero, who hails from Uruguay, was part of a group of Latin American social movements that provided input to the Pope in the months leading to the drafting of Laudato Si. “There really is an urgent need for all of us to change our ways and put our “home” in order because of the environmental degradation everywhere- from air and water pollution due to increasing use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, to loss of biodiveristy, to an out-of-control climate,” said Virginia BenosaLlorin, Food and Ecological Agriculture Campaigner for Greenpeace Southeast Asia. “Our agriculture, which is vital to a healthy nation, has now been impacted by floods and droughts caused by human-induced climate change, in part driven by our unsustainable throw-away consumption patterns,” The Philippines—once ricesufficient, now a rice-importing nation—has wasted more than 12% of imported rice back in 2008. This means the average Filipino has wasted at least 2 tablespoons of cooked rice every day which could have been enough to feed 2.5 million Filipinos a year [1]. Religious groups hope that the public takes inspiration from Laudato Si, while relevant government institutions and especially business stakeholders take on the Pope’s challenge to change their views and practices- from mere dominion over earth’s resources to being responsible stewards of these precious resources, “with our fellowmen.” “The Pope is calling on the broad movement of individuals, communities and institutions to seriously recognize their unique roles as defenders of Creation,” said Fr. John Leydon of the Columban Mission in Malate Catholic Church. “For those of us in the clergy, Laudato Si signals the Church’s involvement in this movement like it was after Populorum Progressio in the late 60s. Everyone should all come together to protect the environment to serve the needs of the poor and address the immoral inequality that is the worst ill of today’s society, as the Pope said in his encyclical.“

The FDA had earlier warned that unregistered insecticides “are harmful, toxic and imminently dangerous to human and animal health.” On the other hand, among

the unregistered mosquito coils being offered for sale in the area include Anlu, Bike BNC, Brother, Mantis and Wawang. Anlu, BNC, Brother and Wawang were among those banned by the FDA last July 30. “Pesticides in mosquito coils found in unregistered products may be toxic when inhaled or accidentally ingested by toddler or children,” the FDA warned The EcoWaste Coalition also drew attention to the illegal sale in Marikina of FDA-banned skin whitening cosmetics laced with mercury such as the Angel Placenta Skin Whitening Cream , JJJ Magic Spots Removing Cream and S’zitang Whitening Cream. Time after time, the FDA requested LGUs “to apprehend vendors or outlets found selling the said highly toxic cosmetic products to prevent further exposure and to protect the environment.” “With the health and wellbeing of the people of Marikina in mind, we request the City Government to immediately take action to cause of the removal of the said banned products from the market,” the EcoWaste Coalition through Dizon wrote to De Guzman. The group also asked for the prosecution of the offenders in accordance with R.A. 9711, the Food and Drugs Administration Act, R.A. 7394, the Consumer Act of the Philippines, and other applicable laws. As the group’s surveillance was limited to Marikina Market Mall and Riverbanks Mall, the group urged the local authorities to dispatch its health and sanitation inspectors to other public markets and retail centers in the city.(PNA)

growth trees and other vegetation in Sitio Sopsopon, Macambol village, which is located between two protected areas – the Pujada Bay Protected Seascape and the Mt. Hamiguitan Range,” he said. “Our forests are still fast disappearing due government policies and programs which allow ecologically destructive projects such as large-scale mining, commercial logging, and agri-industrial plantations. This brand of anti-environment policies, low prioritization of biodiversity conservation, and lack of enforcement have been hallmarks in the politics of the current Aquino administration,” Bautista said. The Philippine Eagle, with its last population estimated at 400, are not only a national symbol but an ecologically important species, he added. “Philippine Eagles are also important biological indicators of a forest’s health and growth, as a mating couple of eagles require at least 50 square kilometers of forest cover for their home range. The dwindling population of Philippine Eagles means we are still failing at protecting our forests,” Bautista said. The PEF, thru social media, called for “support for stronger law enforcement in protecting wildlife and national heritage.” The group said there should be “greater, life-long efforts for education and public awareness campaigns.” (http://bulatlat. com)

This explains the need for other energy sources in order to sustain the growing demands for energy. Vice Governor Pelaez said that this is an eye-opener for Mindanaoans as multinational industries start to flock in the region. “Industrial growth is here in Mindanao.

planted, nurtured, geo-tagged and documented covering 5,633 hectares involving 1,837 farmers. Amante estimated that at 75 percent survival rate, a hectare can be planted with 833 falcatta trees with optimum spacing of 4 meters x 3 meters. “Since a six-year old falcatta tree can produce or harvest 0.7 cubic meter of wood or pulp”, a farmer of a hectare of six-year old falcatta trees can approximately earn P2.5 million ,” he said. “If we successfully gross these 5.18 million trees and harvest them in six years, Butuan City will have an additional P13 billion contribution to the local economy. If we plant five million trees every year, we also expect P13 billion after 2020,” Amante said. Aside from P13 billion every year, Amante said more income will come from intercropping and raising of pigs, cows and poultry, and culturing of milk fish and tilapia and ensured that poverty-incidence will significantly be reduced and the city will have the highest per capita income in Mindanao.

He also revealed that among nine local government units under the PGS, Butuan City was the fastest achiever from Stage 1 to Stage 3 in just one and-a-half years. For infrastructure projects undertaken in 2014, Amante Took the occasion in thanking Congressman Lawrence Lemuel Fortun for Butuan City and Las Nieves, Agusan del Norte, for inclusion in the national budget some P1 billion for several projects including flood control as well as roads and bridges construction/repair/rehabilitation. Internal Revenue Allotment for Butuan City increased to P995 million in 2015 from P870 million in 2014, Amante reported.

Emano condemns Thailand bombing, secures MisOr tourism By Micka Victoria

Misamis Oriental Governor Bambi Emano condemned the Thailand bombing that happened to a shrine in the centre of Thailand’s capital, Bangkok, killing at least 22 people and injuring more than 120.

In a report monitored from here, Alvarez said that two government troopers suffered slight wounds in an hour firefight that started about 6:00 p.m. Wednesday. He said that the pursuing army troopers recovered the unidentified bodies along the withdrawal routes of the communist rebels. Alvarez said that the military brought the bodies to the funeral homes in Valencia City, about 50 kilometers southeast of the municipal town of Pangantucan. He said that the intelligence community has monitored unidentified persons buying large quantities of medical supplies in the local pharmacy. Alvarez said that the military has suspected that the medical supplies were intended for some wounded persons that resulted in a series of armed skirmishes with the NPA rebels in Bukidnon in the past weeks. “Our men surreptitiously monitored and followed the buyers of medical supplies who delivered the supplies to a group of fully armed rebels in the mountains of Pangantucan,” Alvarez said.
