P2M bounty offered for arrest of bomb suspect CITY Mayor Oscar Moreno has offered a P 2 million reward for the arrest and conviction of the perpetrators behind the Kyla’s Bistro bombing that killed eight and wounded 46 Friday 11 days ago here. Moreno during a broadcast interview over local radio said that the P2 million rewards would come from the city’s intelligence fund. He clarified that the city government is offering reward not because the investigators were not doing their job. “We offer a P 2 million for the information leading to the arrest and conviction of the bomb suspect,” Moreno said. He said the investigation of the case was gaining headway since everybody, including the national government, was helping the early resolution of the case. Moreno begged off from mentioning the details so as not to give a clue the subject. “Siguraduhon gyud kay lisud ba kaayo na mag-speculate kita.

Bukidnon’s CMU bags top spots in 2013 agriculturist board exam MALAYBALAY City -- A graduate of the Central M i n d a n a o Un i v e r s i t y (CMU) topped the 2013 agriculturist licensure examination last month while two others from the same school also landed in the top 10 spot. Raul Margate, a faculty member of the CMU College of Agriculture –Horticulture, got the highest rating of 90.17 percent. CMU also landed in the top 10 spot with Eddiemar Lagua (86 percent) and Jerilyn Peligro Gabato (85.17 percent) placing in the fifth and ninth spots, respectively. Two other top achievers are also from Mindanao, Douglas Doloriel of Xavier University and Melani Provido of Ateneo de Davao University, both with 85 percent rating and ranked 10th. The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) announced that 1,712 out of 4,861 passed the Agriculturist Licensure Examination given by the Board of Agriculture in the cities of Manila, Baguio, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Legazpi,

Lucena, Tacloban, Tuguegarao and Zamboanga last July. Of the 342 CMU graduates who took the board examination, 181 passed, giving the university a 52.9 percent performance rating, including those who took the exam for the second time. One hundred fifty-six passed out of a total of 286 who took the board examination for the first time, giving the university a 54.55 percent performance rating. CMU, based in Musuan, Maramag, Bukidnon, prides itself as the “Center of Excellence in Agriculture Education.” According to its website, it started as the Mailag Industrial School (MIS) by virtue of Act 74 of the Philippine Commission at Mailag, Malaybalay, Bukidnon in 1910. Eight years later, it became the Bukidnon Agricultural School (BAS). It became Central Mindanao University (CMU) by virtue of Republic Act 4498 on June 19, 1965. (Walter I. Balane/MindaNews)

Calls rise for police to solve CDO blast CAGAYAN de Oro City-Cagayan de Oro Archbishop Antonio Ledesma called for caution and sobriety Friday as calls intensified for the local police to solve the July 26 Limketkai bombing that killed eight persons and wounded 48 others. This developed as Mayor Oscar Moreno offered a P2 million reward for any information that would lead to the arrest of the lone bomber who planted the deadly bomb at Kyla’s

Bistro at the Limketkai Rosario Arcade. Ledesma made his appeal during the Mass for Peace attended by residents at the blast site on Friday, exactly a week after the explosion ripped through the row of upscale restaurants here. Among those killed was Misamis Oriental provincial board member Roldan Lagbas and two doctors from Manila who attended the national midyear convention of the Philippine College of Chest Physicians. “I caution everyone not to rush judgment against any group now that our city is confronted with terrorism,” Ledesma said. “We must instead forge ties of solidarity with the tri-people that live in Mindanao,” the prelate said. Moreno also reiterated the appeal of Ledesma, cautioning the police not to resort to fall guys or

wrongly accuse any ethnic groups. “This reward money is only for the right suspect who planted the bomb. Please avoid wrongly accusing anyone,” Moreno said. Residents banded together and organized the “Walk for Peace,” marching from the Limketkai Rosario Arcade to the Divisoria Freedom Kiosk in Cagayan de Oro also on Friday. They were joined by Moreno and contingents from the Philippine Army and the Philippine National Police. Carrying placards that say “We want justice,” the residents--composed mostly of doctors, medical representatives, teachers and students-- urged the police to arrest the lone suspect and bring him to justice. “We want to know the

motive of the bombing so we can move on,” said Dr. Tricia Marie Obrero, president of the Philippine College of Physicians in Misamis Oriental (PCPM). In a statement, the PCPM said: “Let us work with everyone in the city in the efforts of rebuilding and moving forward to a better Cagayan de Oro. This is the only way we can go beyond our anger, sadness, hurt and shame of what had happened last July 26.” But the healing for the survivors will be longer because many of those who survived the blast are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), according to Stella Ferrariz, a psychologist from the Cagayan de Oro Social Welfare and Development Office. Fe r r ar i z s ai d t h re e sur vivors—all medical representatives—have already sought help from the Capitol University Medical Center last Sunday despite surviving the blast without injuries. She declined to give the names of the three medical representatives who have sought medical help for PTSD. “They have difficulty sleeping and [are feeling] nervous. Because they are medical representatives, they knew they are suffering from post stress disorder and sought medical help,” she said. Ferrariz said the three were given medical attention until Wednesday when they have to leave for Manila to attend the burial of one of their colleagues. She said they are hoping the three will come back to continue their psychological treatment. In light of this development, Ferrariz said the Philippine Mental Health Association has offered its expertise for every survivor who thinks they are suffering from post stress disorder because of the incident.

Mayor: be vigilant when riding a taxi By Lucia F. Broño of PIA-NCR

PASAY City––Following a rape incident of a 15 year old high school student by a taxicab driver and cohort, Pasay City Mayor Antonino “Tony” Calixto advises passengers particularly females to be vigilant before boarding a taxicab. “Be vigilant. Take note of the license plate if you want to ride a taxi cab. Then immediately inform your relatives or friends so that if anything goes wrong, they already have the details,” Mayor Calixto said. Calixto also added that passengers should make sure that there is no other person inside the taxi before boarding or get out immediately if the driver picked-up another person. “Also, look for someone you know who can accompany you when you get a taxi or make sure that there are witnesses around. Besides texting your family or friends, call them and tell them after you get in, tell them you’re on the way make the cab driver hear that someone is expecting you,” said Calixto. The mayor said that people should avoid the same incident to happen again wherein the victim was punched in the stom-

ach and dragged by one of the suspects inside the taxi after getting out from a beauty shop in Taft-Edsa in Pasay around 12 noon on July 20. She told police that few hours later she was transferred at the back seat of the cab where she was again punched by the suspects on the stomach and while inside the taxi, the two suspects repeatedly raped her. Later, they dumped her in C. Raymundo in Pasig City where she called up her 56-year old father about the incident. On July 22, the victim together with his father were on their way to Philippine General Hospital for her Medico-Genital Examination, chanced upon the suspects along Libertad, Pasay City on board the same El Pueblo taxi with plate number TYF-399. Her father immediately called up the police that led to the arrest of the culprits. They are now facing charges of Forcible Abduction with Rape after they were arrested in a follow-up operation conducted by the Operatives of the Women and Children Protection Desk (WCPD) and the Station Investigation and Detective Management Section (SIDMS) of the Pasay City Police Force.

BRP Ramon Alcaraz meets sister ship in Bolinao, Pangasinan

AFTER two months in the high seas, BRP Ramon Alcaraz, the second Hamilton-class cutter in Philippine service, was met off Bolinao, Pangasinan by its sister ship, BRP Gregorio Del Pilar and an estimated 30 civilian craft Saturday. This took place around 3 p.m., according to Philippine Navy spokesperson Lt. Cmdr. Gregory Fabic. After the “meeting point” ceremonies which lasted for almost an hour, BRP Ramon Alcaraz will proceed to Subic Bay, Zambales escorted by the BRP Gregorio Del Pilar. The country’s newest frigate is expected to dock in Subic Bay late Saturday night or early Sunday morning. “BRP Ramon Alcaraz will anchor for CIQ or customs, immigration, and quarantine until Monday or two days,” Fabic stressed. After the CIQ processing, the ship will then moor at the Alava Wharf for the welcome ceremony to be led See ship, page 8

THE Palace said it is prepared to work with Congress for a more prudent spending of pork barrel funds of lawmakers. “We are prepared to work with them. This is not the first time that we have encountered this particular situation. When the President assumed office, if you notice, the inclination has always been to limit the uses that would be available under the PDAF,” Deputy Presidential spokes-

person Abigail Valte said in a radio interview over dzRB Radyo ng Bayan on Saturday. “And you can see by now that the limitations, the tact to limit has given—has produced some success. So we will continue to work with the members of the House on this.” Valte was reacting to questions whether the Palace is prepared to go to war with Congress just to straighten out how pork barrel funds are used.

At the same time, there are also calls on lawmakers to comply with submission of their SALNs so that the public will know how much money they accumulate while in office. But Valte explained that technically, members of Congress are not obliged to submit their SALNs to the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) but to the House of Representatives. “Anybody who wants to get a copy of the SALN

should be able to go to the House secretariat to ask for the SALN,” she said. Congressmen submitting SALNs to the BIR is not regular, given that Congress is a co-equal branch and the BIR is under the Executive branch, Valte explained. Malacanang made an assurance this week that the ongoing investigation of the National Bureau of Investigation into the alleged pork barrel scam will be impartial and objective.

PVB Chairman de Ocampo Welcomes World-Class Board Members P hilippine Veterans Bank (PVB) Chairman Roberto F. de Ocampo introduced four new members of the bank’s Board of Directors to help in pursuing bank-wide strategic directives that would put the bank into a

more relevant position in the local banking industry. Named to the bank’s Board were Guillermo Parayno, former Commissioner of the Bureau of Internal Revenue and the Bureau of Customs; Judith Lopez, Chairman of Isla Lipana &

Co. (Philippine member firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers), and concurrently President of the Financial Executives Association of the Philippines or FINEX; Professor Nieves Confesor, Dean of the Asian Institute of Management and former

Labor Secretary; and veteran banker Alfonso “Boy” Cruz, formerly with the Land Bank of the Philippines and the Development Bank of the Philippines. When asked about the involvement of these notable personalities, Chairman de Ocampo said, “I cannot over-emphasize the fact that with names like these and with the names of other Board members

that are still with us who are also in their own right outstanding members of the community, you have a leadership of the Bank that is second to none.” Earlier last month, de Ocampo was elected chairman of the PVB Board of Directors, and said that his term marks a fresh new beginning for the bank, with the aim of revitalizing the medium-sized

commercial bank to be an active major player in the banking industry in both local and regional markets. “I’d say we have established a Board that is going to signal to the community that this bank intends to be a major player in banking,” de Ocampo added. PVB is owned by more than 300,000 Filipino World War II veterans and their heirs.

Environment Ilocano sexagenarian is WWF’s latest environmental hero

MANILA, Aug. 3 (PNA) -- Setting out in his small banca in the early dawn of June 18, 2013, a 63-year old fisherman in Badoc, Ilocos Norte thought it would just be like any of his regular forays to the sea -- until he came across an unusual sight. Enmeshed in a fishing net between the villages of Pagsanaan Sur and Pagsanaan Norte was an adult rough-toothed dolphin (Steno bredanensis) struggling for life. Despite his age, Francisco Vergara wasted no time in alerting the authorities. The quick action of the senior citizen resulted in the release of the distressed animal just over six hours after being spotted by Vergara. For his honorable action, the Philippine arm of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) has recognized him as its latest Hero of the Environment. Vergara was awarded the distinction last July 25 by Badoc Mayor Arlene Torralba, Vice-mayor Tom Torralba and WWF-Philippines Conservation Program vice-president Joel Palma in simple ceremonies at the town’s Municipal Session Hall. Palma said that WWF’s Heroes of the Environment program was launched in 2009 to reward individuals that show decisive environmental action. Counting Vergara, WWF has only accorded the distinction to 16 people since its launching. Among them is a shy eight-year old that helped save a wounded risso’s dolphin (Grampus griseus) in Mindoro and the highly-


acclaimed dolphin and peace mural artist, AG Saño, who painted over 30,000 dolphins to protest both the annual killing of dolphins in Japan and the keeping of dolphins in captivity. “To date, however, Vergara is our oldest awardee. He not only made his country proud -- he saved a life. We hope that others can follow his example,” Palma said. Meanwhile, the WWF noted that most Filipinos are unaware that the country is a hotbed for whales and dolphins. Twenty eight species -or a full third of all known cetacean (whale, dolphin and porpoise) species -- have been recorded in Philippine waters as of 2013. Cetaceans which ply our waters include the sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus) -- made famous by the 1851 novel Moby Dick; the killer whale (Orcinus orca) -- biggest of the dolphins and star of the 1993 film Free Willy; and the massive blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus) -- the largest creature on Earth that could reach lengths of 100 feet. Though all cetacean species are protected under Philippine Republic Act (RA) 9147, their incidental capture, known as bycatch, remains a serious and pervasive threat. Since 1997, WWF has been collaborating with leading Filipino marine mammal experts and conservationists to reduce fisheries bycatch and conduct marine mammal training programs with local governments, coastal communities and private sector allies.

In fact, the BSP is 325 years younger than the oldest operating central bank in the world – the Bank of Sweden (www.riksbank. com), which started in 1668. The Bank of Amsterdam in the Netherlands, founded in 1609, actually preceded the “Riksbank,” but it closed for good in 1819. United Kingdom’s Bank of England (BOE), however, is the one widely considered as the pioneer of the modern central banking system. Journalist Jason Rodrigues gave a brief history of the BOE (www.bankofengland. in his 2009 article for the British newspaper The Guardian. He said the Bank

A two-way conversation

THINK a minute. Do you sometimes wonder why you didn’t get what you prayed for? Does God really listen and answer our prayers? Is talking with God just something we do to make us feel good about ourselves? How should we pray? Some people sit back after they pray and wait for God to bring them what they want like a waiter in a restaurant? A wise man said: “We are a part of the answer to every prayer that we pray.” So if we ask God to help us do better in school, then we must do our part of studying more and maybe even getting extra help from someone. We can’t expect God to magically put the answers into our brain the day of the test! It could be that while we’re waiting for God to do something, He’s

Think A Minute Jhan Tiafau Hurst waiting for us to do our part and responsibility. Prayer is a two-way conversation. Prayer is not us getting God to do what we want; it’s more God telling us what He wants so we can learn how to live His successful, satisfying life. And He’s already told us how to live well through Jesus Christ’s life and teaching, the whole Bible, as well as through our thoughts while we’re listening to Him in prayer. Imagine if God always gave us everything we ask for. Then we would just

give Him our orders, forget Him, and go on living our own way. But God created each of us to enjoy a daily, personal relationship with Him. Maybe He’s not giving us exactly what we’re asking for to get our attention, so we’ll start getting closer to Him so we can listen and learn His right, happy way of living. You see, prayer does not only change things, prayer changes US! Other times God wants us to wait, even when we ask Him for good things, because He knows our real

See BANKS, page 7

reasons and motives are wrong and greedy. Or, if we’re asking God to change someone else instead of changing us, then that problem or difficult person may not go away because God wants us to change our heart and attitude toward that person or problem. He’s doing what is best in the long run not only for us, but for everyone else involved. Remember, He is the only One Who can see the big picture or puzzle of life. He knows how everything works and fits together both now and years later! So why not have a real, honest two-way conversation with Him right now? Ask Him to take full charge of your heart and way of living everyday, so He can start showing you His special plan for your life. Just Think a Minute.

Secret of Forbes’ wealthiest Filipinos

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today…” (Deuteronomy 8:18, the Holy Bible). -oooSECRET OF FORBES’ WEALTHIEST FILIPINOS: Did you notice the foreignsounding names of the Filipinos who have been listed in the Forbes’ list of wealthiest around the world? Yes, those who have the fortune of being called not only the Philippines’ wealthiest, but also the world’s richest, are descendants of Filipinos who were once foreigners, or are themselves of foreign descent. And, no matter how we rue this truth, it is the truth which even the Bible told us will happen, for very specific reasons. In Deuteronomy 28:43-44, the Bible said, quite clearly: “The foreign-

Kakampi mo ang batas Atty. Batas Mauricio ers who reside among you will rise above you higher and higher, but you will sink lower and lower. They will lend to you, but you will not lend to them. They will be the head, but you will be the tail.” If we read Deuteronomy 28:15, we will understand why foreigners have been destined to reign supreme in our own land, economically, politically, and socially. This verse says: “However, if you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come on you and overtake


-oooSPIRITUAL DIMENSION OF WEALTH AND RICHES: That being the case, we cannot go around blaming those who have been making it in the Forbes’ list of wealthiest, year in and year out. Clearly, they have been specifically favored by God over Filipino natives. Clearly, they have been enjoying the good life, because that is what the Bible has been saying all along. What then can Filipino natives do to become successful and prosperous like the Filipinos of foreign descent who have amassed

great wealth in our own country? The answer is so simple it is a source of wonder that not many natives have been able to do it and thereby become similarly wealthy and rich. What, really, must be done? Filipino natives must understand that they would have to read the Bible, meditate on it day and night, and obey God’s commands carefully all the time. This is provided for by many verses of the Bible. In Joshua 1:8, we are told that we must not forget to read the Bible everyday, study it day and night, and obey it every second of our lives. The promise is that, if we do all these, then we shall become prosperous and victorious. -oooREAD AND OBEY THE BIBLE FOR SUCCESS AND PROSPERITY: Deuteronomy 28:1-13 tells us that if only we will listen to God and obey His commands, See SECRET, page 8

B ot h a re now common functions of central banks today, including BSP. Since every country has its own histor y and laws, their central banks may also have characteristics unique to them. The United States of America’s central bank for instance, which is called the US Federal Reserve System (w w w.federalreser, has a unique structure with not one but 12 banks. The distinction is explained in the book The Feder a l Re ser ve Sy stem: Purposes and Functions. It said the “Fed” has one central government called the Board of Governors, which oversee 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks (FRB) situated in the country’s major cities. The Boa rd sets t he moneta r y policy while the FRBs serve as the “operating arms” of the system in their respective districts.

What would it take to get our act together? By Manny Valdehuesa

CAGAYAN de Oro City–– The view of our politics and politicians from the bottom is not nice, to say the least. Yet there are many more so-called advocacy groups in our society that claim to be dedicated to reforms, including the faith-based, than the 42,000+ communities or barangays that make up our republic. And there’s a huge government bureaucracy that purports to do good and uphold the eternal verities reflected in our Constitution and laws. What more do we and our neighbors need in order to learn, to be chastened by, and thus to eschew the habit of keeping trapos— traditional politicians—in office? It’s not nice for our social-political development to be bombarded non-stop with scandals and revelations of corruption resulting from trapo dominance. It’s obscene to be lorded over by the same venal faces or governed by the same in-

competents and corruptors. Consider what has been happening ever since the Gang Nam frivolity that attended senate profligacy under erstwhile Martial Law Administrator Juan Ponce Enrile, followed by his cavalier handling of the people’s money, giving millions away as personal gifts at Christmas. Then as if the triumph of trapos and dynasties in the May elections was not terrible enough, today we have horror stories about pork barrel looting made possible by top-level connivance, starring senators and congressmen no less! And not to be outdone, the President rounds out the Dorian Gray Portrait by giving away more instead of less Pork in next year’s national budget. Happy days, and nights, continue for them that are in power while the rest who are not in power are left to simply

grin and bear it. With such a culture of corruption and impunity raging at full throttle in the corridors of power, how can anyone speak of reform, let alone wave the banner of a pretentious slogan like matuwid na daan? Wishy-washy voters But of course, we are all partly to blame. We put them there! We did so, and continue to do so, and we let our neighbors elect them. And it’s all because of our wishy-washy attitude towards politics and politicos. In the senate we now have two pairs of porkaddicted siblings—the Cayetanos and Ejercito/ Estradas—each pair with P 400 million to play around with every year. There’s the Binay father-daughter pair, similarly provisioned for political mayhem, with another in the House—where the list of dynastic tandems and teams pigging out on pork is too long to mention. They

are all products of our votes and those of our neighbors’. By the end of their terms, they will have amassed or given away billions in cash or assets that none of us ever will be heir to. Instead of learning from experience or from the records of these trapos, we worsen things by allowing the bigger trapos to give them more money and greater leeway for sinning, for plundering, for indulging. What’s with us Filipinos? We seem incapable of learning from experience. We make a mockery of our ideals—as religious devotees, as democracy-adherents, and as a nation with a fairly high educational attainment. What will it take to reform our ways?

Cagayan de Oro River Basin designated as new WQMA THE Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has designated as a water quality management area (WQMA) the Cagayan de Oro River Basin in Northern Mindanao, which includes an area best known for the popular sport whitewater rafting. DENR Secretary Ramon J. P. Paje said this latest addition to the growing list of WQMAs in the country is “by far the largest WQMA designation in terms of the vast distances to be placed under a single WQMA.” This brings to 17 the total number of WQMAs designated since the enactment in 2004 of Republic Act No. 9275, also known as the Philippine Clean Water Act, 11 of which were chosen under the administration of President Benigno S. Aquino III. “The inclusion of the Cagayan de Oro River and its tributaries in the WQMA list mirrors the govern-

ment’s high degree of commitment to push sound environmental policies as a pre-requisite for inclusive and sustainable growth,” page said. The designation of WQMA is one of the strategies identified to effectively enforce Republic Act No. 9275, or the Philippine Clean Water Act of 2004, and improve the water quality of water bodies through focused interventions or actions that are designed to address specific water quality issues of the areas. In Department Administrative Order No. 2013-18 that he recently issued, Paje underscored the need to make the 202,400-hectare river basin as “a sustaining resource for the people of the city and municipalities of Cagayan de Oro, Misamis Oriental and Bukidnon.” “This is consistent with our objectives recognizing that water quality management issues are inherently

related and cannot be detached from concerns on water sources, ecological protection, water supply, public health, and quality of life,” Paje added. The Cagayan de Oro River Basin and its adjacent rivers have a perimeter of at least 219 kilometers, cordoning geopolitical jurisdictions of Cagayan de Oro City and the towns of Opol and Tagoloan in Misamis Oriental, and the municipalities of Talakag, Baungon, Libona, and Manolo Fortich in Bukidnon. Also included in the WQMA are the rivers of Cagayan, Iponan, Umalag, Bigaan, Agusan, Cugman, as well as the coastal area of Macalajar Bay, including its adjacent land and tributaries. Cagayan River is famous for whitewater rafting, kayaking and river trekking. The Cagayan de Oro city government and the Department of Tourism have recently

made whitewater rafting in the river as Northern Mindanao’s banner tourism activity. Paje said designating WQMAs would enable concerned officials both in the national and local levels to take focused interventions on specific water quality issues relevant to a particular locality. Under the Clean Water Act, the DENR, in coordination with the National Water Resources Board, is mandated to designate certain areas as WQMAs using appropriate physiographies such as watershed, river basins, or water resources regions to effectively enforce its provisions and improve the water quality of water bodies. The law seeks to provide a decentralized management system for water quality protection and improvement of river systems. Likewise, the DENR is tasked to create a govern-

ing board for each WQMA, which is chaired by a regional director of the DENR’s Environmental Management Bureau (EMB). Its members include the mayor and the governor of the concerned local government unit and representatives of relevant national government agencies, duly registered non-government organizations, and business and water utility sectors. The governing board serves as a planning, monitoring and coordinating body. It also reviews the WQMA action plan prepared by the EMB. Under the WQMA, the DENR and the stakeholders address the water quality problems, sources of pollution, and the beneficial use of the receiving water body. They also determine what control measures to institute to effectively achieve water quality objectives or improvements. With PNA report

Security tightened as city Search for ‘Galing prepares for annual fiesta Mason’ kicks off

POLICE visibility in Cagayan de Oro City has been increased here as the city prepares for the annual fiesta celebration third week of August. The Cagayan de Oro City Police Office (COCPO) has received an augmentation from the regional command to help secure the areas from crimes especially bombings, Pol. Supt. Graciano Mijares said. This development came about after the July 26 bomb explosion at Limketkai Center, which killed 8 people and injured more than 40

others. Mijares, the city’s Chief of Police, also appealed to the people to support efforts of the law enforcers here in instilling security awareness by reporting any suspicious person or activity to the nearest police station. Cagayan de Oro City Archbishop Antonio Ledesma called on the people to pray for peace in the city. The Archbishop also enjoined the citizens to promote a culture of dialogue and to forge bonds of solidarity. Ledesma, who joined the

World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro at the time when the bombing occurred here, also echoed the message of Pope Francis to pray for world peace. He said the people must help build a better city. Msgr. Elmer Abacahin said that the fiesta celebration would continue despite the fears created by the bombing Friday two weeks ago. Abacahin enjoined the Catholic faithful to mark the fiesta celebration meaningfully. GERRY GORIT, Staff Member


came following increased police visibility in various areas in the city particularly at the Limketkai Complex where the bomb explosion occurred. Police Supt. Graciano Mijares, the city’s Chief of Police, said that the PNP’s regional command has deployed more troops to augment the current police force in the city.

The search for this year’s “Holcin Galing Mason Award” kicks off on Tuesday with a total cash prize of over P500,000 at stake for the Grand Champion and Regional Winners. The search was a joint project of the Holcim Philippines, Inc., a major cement and aggregates supplier in the country, and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA).

the construction industry. Deadline of submission of entries is on August 16, 2013. Prizes at stake include Holcim cement bags and P25, 000.00 cash prize each for 17 regional finalists. For the hailed Holcim Galing Mason Grand Champion, he will receive P150,000.00 cash prize and Holcim cement bags. This Holcim Galen Mason Award, now on its fourth year, is done in recognition of the hard work and contribution of masons to nation building. This search would also help the finalists and champion in their employment. The Holcim “Galing Mason Awards” nomination forms are available at TESDA Provincial and Regional offices, the Philippine Contractors Association (PCA) offices, Association of Construction and Informal Workers (ACIW) chapters, Holcim Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) department offices and selected Holcim dealers nationwide. They can also submit accomplished entries to these sites. IRENE B. DAYO Staff Member

Vengeance Special Gospel of the day: Matthew 5:38-42-Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have [thy] cloke also. And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away: In our gospel for today, Jesus taught us to give our maximum tolerance to those who hurt us, physically and emotionally because this is the paradigm of a great love. In Romans 12:19-21Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but [rather] give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance [is] mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore “if thine enemy hunger, feed him;” if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. In Matthew 5:44-but I say unto you, “Love your enemies,” “bless them that curse you,” “do good to them that hate you,” and “pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.” This teaching is “proven in the life of Jesus,” because He forgave those who crucified Him on the cross. In Luke 23:34-Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots. Another incident in the book of Acts, Acts 7:58-60- And they “stoned Stephen, calling upon [God],” and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep. Can you forgive your enemies?

Koronadal City’s football ace makes it to ‘Young Azkals’ team GENERAL SANTOS CITY -- An emerging football ace from nearby Koronadal City in South Cotabato has made the 22-player pool of the Philippine Football Federation’s (PFF) future or “Young Azkals.” Football coach Jun Fusoc said 11 yearold Agiel John Rojo of Koronadal City has been chosen by the PFF as among the young football players from various parts of the country who will join an upcoming educational trip and football training in Lougborough, United Kingdom. He said Rojo, who is a Grade 5 pupil at the Koronadal Central Elementary School-I, made it to the “young Azkals” pool following a rigid tryout and selection process conducted by the PFF earlier this

month in Cagayan de Oro City. “He is one of the five qualifiers from Mindanao and the only one in Region 12,” Fusoc said. Rojo is a product of the Kasibulan grassroots football program of the provincial government of South Cotabato’s Sports–Aral initiative. The program, which is held every summer, is run by PFF affiliate Football Association of South Cotabato. “I used to train and do warm ups even during school days that starts at 4 m at the South Cotabato Sports Complex,” Rojo said. Rojo, together with his other team mates in the province train under the tutelage of coach Fusoc through the

Kasibulan grassroots football program. With the emergence of Rojo as football ace, Fusoc said their hard work and dedication to engage students and young children through sports have finally paid off. “At last, we have produced promising athlete in his age bracket.” Fusoc said. “(But) I still look forward for more athletes who will follow his footsteps as there are still potential players in our team,” he said. Rojo is set to leave for Manila in early August for the initial leg of the training arranged by the PFF. The 22-player team’s training in the United Kingdom is slated on August 24 to Sept. 15. (PNA)

Preparation for Cobra Ironman 70.3 in Cebu on final stages CEBU CITY -- Organizers of this year’s Cobra Energy Drink Ironman 70.3 international marathon said preparations for the event are on their final stages. Potholes on the 56-mile bike route were filled, traffic routes were finalized and the athletes' medals have been commissioned from Cebu's best international designer. Some 2,000 athletes from 36 countries are joining the event. The Sunday event marks the second year that the Ironman 70.3 is being staged in Cebu and the fifth time in the country after Camarines Sur hosted the first race in 2009. “This is the most intense preparation that we've done,” said Princess Galura, general manager of Sunrise Events Inc., the organizer of the Ironman 70.3. “If before, local government units acted separately, this time everyone is getting along and helping one another,” she said. The race drew 2,150 participants or a 21 percent increase

from last year's attendance. The event will have athletes complete a 1.2-mile swim in the waters of Mactan, bike for 56 miles up to the South Road Properties (SRP) in Cebu City and Talisay City, then run a 13.1 mile course through Lapu-Lapu City. Lapu-Lapu City will host the event in coordination with the Capitol and cities of Mandaue, Cebu and Talisay. The races start and end at the Shangri-La Mactan Resort and Spa in Lapu-Lapu City, the same venue last year. Australian Pete Jacobs, who won his first Ironman World Championships title last year will be back to defend his title. A world celebrity in the music industry also signed up but his name is under wraps, Galura said. Medals for this year's participants and top performers of the Ironman 70.3 are designed by multi-awarded Cebuano designer Kenneth Cobunpue, who also designed the medals last year for Cebu's first hosting of the Ironman 70.3.
