BOC-10 intensifies drive against entry of ‘fake rice’ in Normin By GERRY LEE GORIT Correspondent

THE Bureau of Customs (BOC) in Northern Mindanao has intensified its campaign against the entry of fake rice and other imported products in this part of the region. BOC-10 Intelligence Office II Alvin Enciso said the BOC is now closely monitoring the entry of all imported products in all ports of the country. In an exclusive interview, Enciso said the BOC-10

conducted its own investigation in regard to the discovery of fake rice in Davao. “We are conducting our own investigation to rule out the possibility that the fake rice came from Cagayan de Oro City or, from the provinces of Surigao and Zamboanga,” he said. Aside from the BOC, other agencies such as the National Food Authority (NFA), the Philippine National Police (PNP), and even the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) are See fake, page A11

‘Daang Matuwid’ is the thrusts that propels the govt, says Roxas By CRIS DIAZ Executive Editor

CAMP Alagar, Cagayan de Oro City--The administration of President Benigno Aquino III derives its strength by pursuing its vow through its “Daang Matuwid” governance. “Daang Matuwid” is a vernacular for “straight path,” a political slogan of

Gunmen attack mayor’s house

Pres. Aquino when he ran for the presidency in 2010. Interior Secretary Mar Roxas made the statement during the turnover of 23 police patrol jeeps here last week. “This government derives its strength by pursuing its vow to fulfill the mandate of trust that embodies the “Daang Matuwid” governance,” Roxas said.

“Daang Matuwid” will do everything to respond to the needs of the people, not with lip service or the mere display of “tarpaulins,” he said. He said that the government draws its strength through the trust of the people. “Daang Matuwid” is one way of fulfilling the trust. See propels, page A11

THE fewer jobs created during the first quarter of the year are wholly part-time, low-wage and insecure, according to research group IBON. The increase in part-time employment even occurred amid losses in full-time work, said the group, adding, these are clear signs of an increasingly distorted economy that has become less able to provide secure jobs with decent pay. In its recent release of the April 2015 Labor Force Survey (LFS) results, the National Statistics Office reported a 243,000 decrease in the number of unemployed Filipinos in April 2015 to 2.68 million from 2.92 million in the same period last year. There is also a 495,000 increase in the number of employed to 39.2 million from 38.7 million. IBON noted that the 495,000 increase in the number of employed consists of a 544,000 increase in informal work to 15.5 million, less the 137,000 decrease in the number of fulltime work to 22.8 million.

ROW violations disrupt NGCP’s power lines

P

AGADIAN CITY – The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP), the country’s grid operator, is facing a problem in the operation and maintenance of their power lines. Thus, disclosed Engr. Armand S. Dysico, NGCP’s district I operations and maintenance head, during the weekly media forum organized by the Philippine Information Agency (PIA9), at Hotel Alindahaw, this city. Dysico said NGCP’s Mindanao grid is experiencing a major problem due to rampant right-of-way DEED OF EXTRA-JUDICIAL PARTITION OF ESTATE AMONG THE HEIRS OF PEDRA E.

etation below these power lines has adverse impact on the power situation in Mindanao,” Dysico said adding that when tall trees touch the lines, it will cause power outages. In a recent inspection on the area, they have observed that some landowners have planted trees underneath the lines. “The growing of trees was intentionally done since there are no trees planted in the open field,” he added. “With this, NGCP in Mindanao had to pay off landowners to uproot the trees planted underneath the transmission lines,” Dysico announced. He s aid t he NGCP

negotiated with the concerned landowners but only few have agreed. Most of them refused to negotiate because they demanded huge amount of money in exchange for their request. When asked why this problem had cropped up, Dysico said NGCP officials have observed that during the time when TransCo was still in operation, there were only a few ROW problems encountered. “But when it was about to be privatized, some landowners started planting trees under the transmission lines and refused negotiations,” he added. Meanwhile, Regional Corporate Communica-

tions and Public Affairs Officer Elizabeth Ladaga said the Baloi substation in Balo-i, Lanao del Norte is considered as the heart of Mindanao grid saying that four (4) of the hydropower plants, namely: Baloi Agus 2 138KV line no. 1; BaloiAgus 2 138KV line no. 2; Balo-I Agus 4 line no. 2; and Abaga-Agus VI 69KV line are situated in Balo-i. Ladaga said on June 4, 2015, Baloi-Agus 2 138KV line 2 no. 1 and 2 tripped off due to critical vegetation. Fortunately, line 1 was restored when the breaker was reclosed. However, line 2 did not render service, and the said line is out of service up to the present.

Accordingly, some 500 megawatts produced by the hydropower plants will pass through Balo-i substation. She said NGCP’s ROW problem in Balo-i has caused frequent line tripping or brownouts, not just in the town, but also in the western region of Mindanao. Ladaga said the NGCP had filed expropriation proceedings so it can pay off landowners, but the transmission company may have to shell out more money to pay the tree planters in Balo-i. “We have already filed 6 expropriation cases in the court,” she concluded.

DOE pushes Silliman University to go solar energy DUMAGUETE CITY -As part of the 35 Affiliated Renewable Energy Centers (AREC) in the country affiliated by the Department of Energy (DOE), Silliman University (SU) can now contract with solar energy company to supply solar power in the campus. DOE Asst. Secretary Daniel Ariaso said SU is officially accredited as an AREC for the next five years to empower them and promote partnership with public and private sector without anymore securing an approval from the DOE. The program is part of DOE’s mandate to develop indigenous energy resources.

Ariaso cited that government give imperative to renewable energy as clean energy sources must be fully tapped in response to the global call to address climate change. Right now, the OrionGroup International an international solar power company has proposed to Silliman to install a 1.2 megawatts solar energy project worth $2 million. However, executive vicepresident Rynor Jamandre of OrionGroup said in an agreement Silliman does not have to cash out for the installation of the solar power. With 25 years warranty, Orion will install and main-

tain the solar power system, said Jamandre. It is said, Silliman, with more than 200 buildings would be the biggest solar energized campus in Asia. Using solar energy not only to reduce the cost of electric bill but also protect the environment, “may save 20KW for a one student scholar and for every 5KW used can provide one solar energized hinterland barangay,” Jamandre cited. Silliman University, through its Extension Program, is assisting in the electrification program for far-flung barangays in the southern part of Negros Oriental.

In cooperation with DOE and the Negros Oriental Electric Cooperative, the university provides electric power to two hinterland communities in the municipalities of Siaton and Santa Catalina. These barangays have been certified to have no access to electricity and are not covered under the grid extension plan of the electric distribution utility in the next three years. The energy department is pushing to increase the installation target for solar energy from 50 to 500 megawatts and put RE on a more prominent role in the country’s energy mix. (PIA7-Negros Oriental)

Trials are opportunities “Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.” I always liked the above quotation. For me, it is so liberating and uplifting. It means that despite the trials we encounter in life, which is non-stop because every day brings its own sorrows, it is still wonderful to be alive. We cannot stop the sun from shining, the same way that we cannot stop the problems from coming. When we comprehend that, we also understand that there is no reason to be afraid. How can we fear something which is natural and a part of life? Rather, we face it with unshakeable trust, because the Giver of Life has ordained it. He sent the trial to grow us up. Not to break us, but to build our strength. When we embrace this truth, then we can eyeball with fear and not be crushed. We will be free to drink from the cup of joy, and worthy to claim it as our just reward. I’ve always lived my life cautiously, in an ordered and secured way. I avoid taking unnecessary risks, and I don’t gamble with the things that are precious

mayor remains innocent until proven guilty. In other words, the pending anti-graft cases are not enough reason for the ruling LP to junk Moreno as the standard-bearer in the 2016 local elections. In fact, in most cases, the graft court dismisses cases when the court is able to prove the political motives behind its filing. Thus, there could be some compelling reasons, if the LP would junk Moreno. Perhaps, one the reasons would boil down to Moreno’s management capability as the City Executive. Many are complaining, especially the business sector, that Moreno’s style in running the affairs of the city government draws more harm than good. Obviously, the allegation of exorbitant business taxes is a factor that spoiled the Moreno’s administration. The revenue issue has become a long drawn battle of legal witticism with the local august body. There is no incident in the history of the city’s governance that has given prominence to the conflict between the local executive and the legislative See diaz, page A11

Think a minute… Have you ever tried to get 2 fighting kids to admit their share of the blame? A 40-year-old man told his friends: “I’ve learned that when you ask your wife ‘What’s wrong?’ And she says ‘Nothing.’ Man, watch out! Because her ‘nothing’ means you’re getting blamed for SOMETHING!” Someone said, “Marriage is like a loaf of bread: no matter how thin you slice it, there are always 2 sides.” Because there’s his story and version of the problem, and then there’s her side of it. A husband and wife were meeting with a marriage counselor. The counselor told them both to ask each other this question: “What’s the hardest part of living with me?” Then, without interrupting or defending themselves, the husband and wife had to listen to each other tell them what was difficult about living with them. So they were both responsible to take their share of the blame for their marriage problems. The husband had to admit that he’d been selfish and immature when he went to the bar or pub after work instead of coming home to be with his wife and kids. And the wife had to admit she was always nagging and ruining the mood in their home so that her husband and kids didn’t enjoy being around her. You see, it’s only when we admit our share of the blame for our marriage problems that we can begin to do change and improve it. Then we will stop trying to change our wife or husband, and start working on the only person we can change: ourselves. That’s when our wife or husband might start wanting to change also. But it’s not easy for us See hurst, page A11

Groups bring militarization of Lumad schools to CBCP Bukidnon • Camiguin • Lanao del Norte • Lanao del Sur • Misamis Occidental • Misamis Oriental

MALAYBALAY City––After the Department of Education refused to heed calls for the pullout of government troops from schools for indigenous peoples in Southern Mindanao, Gabriela Rep. Luzviminda Ilagan and other groups have taken the issue to leaders of the influential Roman Catholic Church.

In a statement, Ilagan said intensified military operations have disrupted the lives of the Lumad and the education of

their children. She said she has voiced these concerns in a dialogue with Archbishop Romulo Valles, vice president of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines. “Aquino’s Oplan Bayanihan and the Department of Education’s collusion with the military in its counterinsurgency operations have further deprived and impoverished indigenous communities. It is important for more sectors, specially the religious to express their support for the Lumads and their call to stop the attacks on Lumad schools,” she added. The lawmaker cited in particular the closure of schools being operated by the Salugpungan ta Tanu Igkanugon Community Learning Center and Mindanao Interfaith Services Foundation Inc.

(MISFI) Academy MISFI in Davao del Norte. Ilagan and other progressive groups blamed the closure of the Lumad schools on pressure from the military which they said branded these institutions as “training ground” of the New People’s Army.

Duterte to public: Don’t panic; asks CIDG to probe ‘fake rice’

D

AVAO CITY – “Do not panic,” Mayor Rodrigo Duterte urged the public on Sunday, as he asked the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) to take over the investigation into the reported entry and selling of “fake rice.”

“We are trying to find our best to find out the truth,” the mayor told viewers of his Sunday television program, “Gikan sa Masa, Para sa Masa” (From the masses, for the masses), adding

One DavNor Rescue launched

DAVAO DEL NORTE -- In celebration of the National Disaster Consciousness Month, the provincial government of Davao del Norte earlier today launched the One DavNor Rescue during the regular Monthly Convocation at the Bulwagan ng Lalawigan. Gaspar Balinggao, president of Provincial Alliance of Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Officers (PADRRMO), said that One DavNor Rescue is the unification of all available rescue skills from the different

local disaster rescue team in the province “One DavNor Rescue aims to response to disasters at any given time within the province and even outside the province when activated and necessary,” Balinggao added. He bared that the idea started as remorse on the aftermath of Typhoon Yolanda by most of the action officers that it was not able to send contingents to actually assist in the restoration of the devastation. He disclosed that the

main reasons were scarcity of resources and not yet enhanced level of rescuer’s skills and also tedious process imposed by the Commission on Audit in spending calamity fund. “This resulted to an agreement to converge resources in the event of provincial deployment during occurrence of disaster which needs manpower to response even outside the province’s area of responsibility,” he said. He also emphasized that the initiative evolved through the rescue drills conducted by the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO), which creLaunched | page A7

he will ask the city police chief to turn over whatever evidence they may have to the CIDG to investigate where the alleged “fake rice” came from, whether from neighboring areas or imported. If it’s imported, he said, ‘we will go after the guy who made the importation,” but if dumped like smuggled goods, “pangitaay ta ani” (we will have to look around). The mayor warned that if public interest is harmed, “kung naay mass poisoning, mutuo ka buhion ta pa ka?” (If there is mass poisoning, you think I will let you live?) The “fake rice,” reportedly from China, looks like genuine rice but when cooked and eaten, allegedly has the consistency of styrofoam. In his Sunday program, Duterte repeatedly warned rice traders to ensure what they sell is not harmful to the public. He said initial police investigation showed the alleged “fake rice” was bought in Bansalan but those in

ports the alleged “fake rice” were sold in other provinces but he declined to name these provinces. He ordered city police chief Vicente Danao to turn over evidence to the CIDG who will in turn coordinate with regional field offices. “You may use the police of other places,” Duterte said, adding the CIDG has branches in the provinces. Duterte acknowledged that for now, “we do not have any conclusive evidence on the matter.” But he warned rice sellers to “know what you are selling” and to suffer the consequences if there are complaints. “It is your obligation to ensure that what you sell to the consuming public is safe to digest and alright to eat,” Duterte said, adding, “di ta ka pasayloon kung naay mamatay. Idemanda ta gyud ka” (I will not forgive you if somebody dies. I will sue you),” the mayor vowed. He said he would sue for economic sabotage. (MindaNews)

Bansalan claimed there has been no rice harvest there and that the rice came from Bislig, Surigao del Sur. “This is a long story. We would need the police to really thresh out what really happened,” the mayor said. Duterte said he was informed some consumers had cooked and eaten the “fake rice” for five days. “One uncanny feature is dugay mabahaw, gahi kung mabugnaw (it doesn’t spoil easily, it hardens when cold). He said there were no reports of diarrhea and signs of food poisoning. He said the National Food Authority (NFA) has asked for a chemical analysis of the properties of the alleged “fake rice” and until the results are in, “I would not want to create panic.” But Duterte also said that those who ate “fake rice” should not be over confident as plastic, one of the components of “fake rice” may not be processed by the digestive system.

UTUAN CITY – More than 1,000 farmers and agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) walked from the City Hall grounds here to the Agusan del Norte capitol covered court last June 30, 2015 to celebrate the 27th Anniversary of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) and to call for the program’s continuation beyond 2016.

Organized by the Federation of Agrarian Reform Community Cooperatives (FEDARCCO), the activity ended with a farmers’ forum attended by Agusan del Norte Governor Maria Angelica Rosedell Amante-Matba, Agrarian Reform Regional Director Julita Ragandang and Provincial Agrarian Reform Officer (PARO) Andre Atega. Governor Amante-Matba

acknowledged the very important role of the farmers essentially farming families in feeding the province. Director Ragandang challenged the farmers to continue to strengthen their organizations as the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) will continue to provide interventions to improve the farmers’ quality of life. “We will continue

to serve more beyond land distribution,” she said. In Caraga. 92 percent of the 304,000 hectares working scope

has already been distributed. PARO Atega thanked FEDARCCO for organizing the said activity.

Balinggao urged the provincial government to lobby to the local mayors for the appointment on plantilla positions, the action officers and staff of the local DRRMOs. He said that it is one of their hurdles today to sustain the disaster mitigation programs and projects, which includes preparedness in the grassroots level. “PADRRMO believes that disaster preparedness starts from the family and community,” he stressed. He said that by preparing the family and community, we can become the best disaster prepared province.

Oro’s proposed Integrated Zoning Ordinance mitigates ‘climate change’ By Cris Diaz Executive Editor

CAGAYAN de Oro City–– The city government here has started conducting public hearings on the proposed Integrated Zoning Ordinance (IZO) that now mitigates “climate change.”

Illegal fishing structures removed TANGUB City––--A total of 923 illegal fishing structures, particularly, “sanggab” were successfully removed from the coastal waters here recently. This figure actually represents 55.53 percent of 1,662, the total number of “sanggab” to have been constructed in Panguil Bay, per inventory done by the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR), in collaboration with the local government unit (LGU) and the sanggab owners, themselves. As of June 30, this year, BFAR has completed the geo-tagging of these illegal fishing structures and came out with the following numbers: Tangub City, 923, Ozamiz City, 145, Bonifacio, Misamis Occidental, 59, Baroy, Lanao del Norte, 445 and Tubod, of the same province, 87. Regional Director Visa Tan-Dimerin of

Councilor Alexander Dacer, on Tuesday, said that 59 village chiefs joined the public hearing last Friday as the city council started drafting a new IZO that would inform the constituents on the status of the village lots. Dacer said that the new

IZO intends to identify areas considered as “danger zone,” particularly villages near water passages, as part of mitigating climate change. He said: “So far, the village chiefs have not introduced new changes of the existing IZO during the

first two public hearings.” Dacer, chair of the city council committee on subdivision and landed estate, said that the public hearings are important so that the constituents would know the classification of the village. Engr. Isidro Borja of the

City Planning and Development Office (CPDO), said that there are no changes in the zoning of urban barangays as these are highlycommercial areas. “In the proposed IZO, they have introduced some areas for commercial as well as hazard zones, there

are no changes, especially those barangays along the river,” Borja said. Dacer said that the committee has scheduled a second public hearing for the second week of July with the village residents, the business sector, and developers in attendance.

Your cooperation is required for you to be saved Special Gospel of the day (July7, 2015-Tuesday) Luke 24:13-35” And they were talking with each other about all these things which had taken place. While they were talking and discussing, Jesus Himself approached and began traveling with them. But their eyes were prevented from recognizing Him. And He said to them, “What are these words that you are exchanging with one another as you are walking?” And they stood still, looking sad. One of them, named Cleopas, answered and said to Him, “Are You the only one visiting Jerusalem and unaware of the things which have happened here in these days?” And He said to them, “What things?” And they said to Him, “The things about Jesus the Nazarene, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word in the sight of God and all the people, and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to the sentence of death, and crucified Him.

Bro. Edcel L. Closas ises of God for us. God has great promises for your life on this earth and your cooperation is required for you to be saved.

Living the life we want does not depend on what we have, It’s how we manage with what we have. We receive the same salary yet others lived in a decent, more comfortable way of living, not buried so much in debt, while others are nearly hand to mouth existence. It’s a reality to reflect on by some mentors. Teachers are favorite of the lending agencies because mostly

does not say no to their offers and It becomes a vicious cycle to some mentors, until they realized they could no longer get out of the trap. During teachers gathering and meetings the most common topic being discuss is about LOAN. And why are teachers associated to loan among other professions? This tag discredits our being a teacher.

Leadership Framework that could be used in schools By Wendell A. Delos Santos Teacher III Lazaro MES Bonifacio East District

True, supervising over a group of people cannot be easy. In schools for example, it is a kind of hard time for a teacher to handle varying children personalities. She need to work out with each personalities and make these personalities meet in the middle. In the end of it, it just takes a dose of application of different leadership styles. Kurt Lewin is a psychologist who argued that there are three major leadership styles. These are autocratic, democratic and laissez faire. According to him, Autocratic Leadership is a form where decisions are made by the leader without consulting the group, even if it said that the contribution of the members would be useful. This is appropriate when decision is necessary to be quick. Democratic, on the other hand, is when leaders do final decisions but group members are included in the decisionmaking process. This often encourage interest and creativity, for members are possible to attain high job satisfaction and

high productivity. In the classroom, for an instance, the teacher wants to create poster for “Buwan ng Wika” theme and she encouraged the students to give ideas how and what way it will be drawn, what are the symbols, how it will be presented and the like. In the end, the teacher will decide what are best ways among the ideas given. The third one is the Laissez Faire. The name is a French word that means “leave alone.” In Laissez Faire, the team leader gives his members the freedom in working. Laissez Faire in classroom occur also at particular times. Example for that is during a groupwork in Science, the teacher will just let the students experiment on their own and it is up on how they perform during the process if whether they will be successful in the experiment or not. The style of management is very important. The effectivity of the leader highly depends on how he managed the group by way of what leadership style he is applying.

ence in life’s perspective. It’s a matter of knowing wants from needs and prioritizing the latter and doing something out of what we have. To live within your means entails us that you must spend each month less than or at least equal to the amount of money you bring in each month or else your take home will not take you home. For many it’s a lot easier said than done and to avoid being hooked is to stay away with the Joneses or the Hiltons. By not being pressured to have the same material things as the people around you and even mass media is offering you. Teachers must refrain from using credit cards for a short period of time, because you’ll pay for it later, and you’ll end up paying for

more to buy more things than your income would warrant. Keeping a spending diary is an effective way of seeing exactly what you spend your money on. If you can do it for even longer, you’ll get a fuller picture of what you spend your money on. It’s so true that sometimes budgeting in a stressful financial scenario is overwhelming. BUT??? you need to make some minor changes to your budget to get it work, by getting into a regular savings habit is more important than how much you put away and later you will be surprised how quickly a few pesos each month builds up. It’s a challenge to live within your means.

The Senior High School Program By Carolyn Mae M. Olivar Teacher – I Ignatio Tan Memorial Integrated School Bonifacio East District Division of Misamis Occidental

K to 12 is the system of education in the Philippines that is consist of kindergarten and 12 years learning cycle which is equivalent to six years for elementary, four years in Junior High School and two years for Senior High School. President B enigno Aquino’s administration and Department of Education believe that extending time will provide children adequate time to enhance their learning skills, develop life-long learners and prepare students for tertiary education, middlelevel skills development, employment and entrepreneurship. Senior High School is a component for K to 12 that offers specialization programs where students could choose from. These are the Academic, Sports and Arts Track. In SHS, students may choose a specialization based on her aptitude, interests, and school capacity. The choice of career track

will define the content of the subjects a student will take in Grades 11 and 12. Included in SHS is the technical-vocational education and training that upon finishing, a national certificate (NC I and NC II) will be given to students. These national certificates will improve employability of graduates in fields like Agriculture, Electronics, and Trade. K to 12 offers a lot of things beyond typical the word Education Filipinos used to know. Students and teachers might meet challenges along implementation due of being new, but it is expected that at the end of the run, K to 12 will be producing people that are passionate in their careers and as well good contributors for nation-building. Through K to 12, Education has provided students tools in their tough encounter in real life while giving focus on preparing students to whatever real life will challenge them.

Search for a lost love and another legend of Tinuy-an Falls

Unless we run to God in our suffering, inevitably we will become bitter and in despair. But if we choose to trust God to bring about something good out of this trial, we will discover that trials are not traps to bring us down, but opportunities to lead us up. Pain forces us to mature and hunger for something better. It pressures us to change, so that ultimately we can gain the victory, which can only be won through suffering. Don’t be impatient when you are in the midst of trials. Face it with calmness. Remember, everything in life passes, including your distress.

Alright, you’ve probably never been to Tinuy-an Falls in Bislig City in Surigao del Sur, indisputably (to a lot of people) the most awesome and widest waterfalls in Mindanao, if not the whole country, being baptized as the Niagara Falls of the Philippines. As traveler Eladio Centino has said, “You put three famous waterfalls in the country side by side but Tinuy-an still’s more fascinating and outlength them.” Called the “White Wall,” Tinuyan glimmers amidst the thick green forest but it is best to visit it in the rainy season (July to December) when the water is thick and heavy, the sight doubly enormous. For the curious minds, they may be asking how Tinuy-an got its name. Leave it to the storytellers who from past generations have told a few versions. And regardless of whether or not they are politically

and the legislative than in Moreno’s watch. The sour relationship of the incumbent executive and the legislature has become scandalous at the expense of the constituents. I believed it was unfair to either accused Moreno or the City Council of being derelicts in the performance of their functions. However, in an atmosphere of excellent housekeeping, the conflict between the city executive and the legislature could be minimized, if not, eliminated. Nonetheless, judging the status of the city executive and the legislative department today, the concept of culpability always lies in the hands of the city executive. We are discussing about leadership and command responsibility here. If the LP would junk Moreno, if would only mean that Moreno’s leadership is a failure. -0- Send comments/ reaction: crisguardian@ yahoo.com

to see our own faults and weaknesses, let alone be strong enough to admit we have them. But until we take the responsibility for the problems and unhappiness which we cause in our marriage, very little will change. So why not be honest with yourself? Just ask Jesus Christ to forgive you today for your wrong attitudes and the way you treat your wife or husband? Then ask Him to give you the strength and willpower to start changing each and every day. Just Think a Minute…

Gato Island as a shark and ray sanctuary, prohibiting the catching and trading of all shark and ray species within these waters. Rare species, such as thresher sharks, whitetip sharks, manta rays, and devil rays, can be found in these areas. “Our landmark decision to create the country’s first shark and ray sanctuary will ensure the protection and conservation of sharks

and rays which are threatened to extinction due to overfishing and the general lack of awareness on the importance of these highly endangered species,” said Corro. “Hosting the shark and ray sanctuary is also one of the best ways in which our local community can give back to these creatures for bringing-in tourism revenues which boosts their livelihood.” The new EO was welcomed by environmentalists, marine conservationists, tourism executives, and local government agencies that gathered at the Cebu Provincial Capitol for a three-day forum on strengthening and implementing the province’s shark and ray ordinance. “For a country blessed with unique marine biodiversity, it is high time that we establish a shark and ray sanctuary. We are pleased that Cebu is continuing its great work on shark and ray conservation by establishing sanctuaries that ensure the sustainability of these critical species,” said Vince Cinches, Oceans Campaigner for Greenpeace Philippines. “We urge our national lawmakers to take the cue from Cebu and make similar moves to turn the rest of our national waters into a haven for all shark and ray species.” Studies conducted by the Thresher Shark Research and Conservation Project estimates that approximately 80% of the municipal economy of Daanbantayan is fueled by scuba diving, providing employment and supporting livelihoods of local communities and its neighboring municipalities. Atty. Chad Estella, head of Cebu’s Anti-Illegal Fishing Task Force, added that the declaration of the shark and ray sanctuary demonstrates how the provincial ordinance is also good for local communities. “One of the action points we’ve come up is to launch Oplan Palwis to further strengthen Cebu’s existing ordinance that protects sharks and rays, incorporating science

correct or supernaturally unbelievable, they make for interesting and colorful ancient stories. The first story is anchored on romance with a tragic twist. It began when a young tribal lady who lived in a tribal village near the mountain forest vanished one day. “She could have eloped with someone,” somebody suspected. Her lover, a bagani (warrior), tried to look for her. After days of fruitless search he became sad and depressed. But another question came to everyone’s mind. Was she really a human being? Could it be that she was an encantada (spirit) who made the good-looking warrior fall in love with her? As the bagani waited and waited, he showed signs of intense emotional anguish. His peers observed he now talked to himself in a queer manner and hid in the thick forest.

and using the updated and revolutionary Philippine Fisheries Code. This is to ensure that the country’s first shark and ray sanctuary will be effective especially in reversing fish decline due to decades of overfishing,” said Estella.” Dennis Bryan Bait-it, the coordinator of Daanbantayan’s Bantay Dagat Migo sa Iho said, “Protecting sharks and rays is not only economically beneficial to local fisherfolk, but also to our marine ecosystems. Many shark species are indicators of a healthy marine ecosystem. This ensures fish are spawning and thriving so there would be more fish to catch by the local fishermen.” Anna Oposa, co-founder of Save Philippine Seas said, “The declaration of the shark and ray sanctuary sends a powerful message to the rest of the country and the world – that with political will, we can protect and restore the health of our seas.”

BFAR, region 10, said the geo-tagging of these structures will continue in the other LGU’s surrounding Panguil Bay, namely: Clarin, Misamis Occidental, Maigo, Kolambugan, Lala and Kapatagan, in Lanao del Norte and Aurora and Tambulig, in Zamboanga del Sur. Meanwhile, Atty. Philip T. Tan of Tangub said of the sanggabs in the city, 596 were removed voluntarily by their operators, while 327 were removed forcibly by the LGU. Tan said the highest number of 497 of these “sanggab” structures were located in Barangay Maquilao, followed by 312 in Migcanaway, 78 in Maloro, 20 in Mantic, 10 in Garang and nine in San Apolinario. Removal of “sanggab” structures from Panguil Bay was aimed at bringing back the marine wealth of the Bay, a known spawning area of shrimps and crabs, as agreed upon by the members of PBDC, during its 4th Full Council Meeting last February, in Lala, Lanao del Norte.

One day they saw him head for the falls and disappear. They heard a scream, a loud thud and saw his dead body floating downstream. His face showed happiness. “It was his choice, his intention (tinuyuan) to offer his life in exchange of seeing the diwata again in her realm.” So the people concluded. Story number two This one reminds of actionfilled adventure movies in the mold of “Lord of the Rings”. A mountain tribe lived peacefully but its members were facing danger from strange men from a faraway, unknown tribe who were spying on them and eventually subdued and enslaved them. They fought back but suffered even more. The men were chained, their wives taken, their children sold. A baylan (priest) prayed to the spirits of the forest asking for help. One day, the falls glimmered like a

also closely monitoring the entry of fake rice. Earlier, he said the operatives from the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) has raided a warehouse but turned out to be negative. He did not elaborate. As this developed, Enciso suspects that fake rice was “locally-introduced” and “locally-produced” but still “we are monitoring all the imported products even the ingredients used in making the fake rice.” On one hand, Enciso said that the BOC-10 will auction on Thursday (July 9, 2015) at least 120 containers of smuggled rice.

Roxas said that the nationwide distribution of the patrol cars in the country motivated by the government’s commitment to alleviate the country’s police force. “Contrary to insinuations, there is nothing politics in the distribution of the patrol cars since every town in the country, regardless of political color would get one,” Roxas said. He said that each of the 23 towns in Misamis Oriental will have one “multiEXTRA-JUDICIAL SETTLEMENT OF THE ESTATE OF THE DECEASED WENDELL B.

jewel and caught the attention of the invaders. The baylan believed it was a way of the spirits of luring the invaders. The invaders ordered the native warriors to take them to the falls. As they obliged, they silently believed it was a divine act by the spirits in their favor. The invaders thought the falls flowed directly into the sea and took a raft with the native men at the helm. The invaders were loud and noisy and did not notice the native men jumping off as the raft plunged into the boulders, sending the aggressors to their death. The villagers showed no mercy to the attackers as it was their choice or intention (tinuyuan) to test the spirits of the forest. After winning back their freedom the tribe offered a ritual of thanks.

purpose” patrol jeeps that could also be utilized in times of emergencies and disasters. On Friday morning, Roxas turned over seven patrol cars in the island province of Dinagat in the Northeastern Mindanao region. He said the DILG will distribute 14 more patrol jeeps to Lanao Del Norte Saturday morning and another five patrol jeeps in the island province of Camiguin later in the afternoon. The distribution of the patrol jeeps in North and Northeastern Mindanao region is part of the 1,490 patrol jeeps for distribution to each of the 1,490 towns in the country, Roxas said.

informal work and a reduction in the number of full-time work indicates a deterioration in the overall quality of work, said the group. Informal work or jobs worked less than 40 hours a week are commonly low-paying, unstable and lacking in benefits accorded to regular workers. IBON added that the number of unemployed is also likely underestimated. The reported decrease in the number of unemployed is partly because job-seekers have become discouraged after many years of poor and unchanging employment prospects. This may be the reason for the falling labor force participation rate to 64.6% in April 2015 from 65.2% in the same period the year before. Huge job losses in the key pro-

duction sectors of agriculture and manufacturing also belie claims to an improving economy, said IBON. The same NSO report showed that the agriculture sector shed a very large 396,000 employed. The manufacturing sector shed another 34,000, which job losses were off-set mainly by a 204,000 increase in wholesale and retail trade. This worsens the trend of the Philippines being a merely trading nation rather than, despite its rich natural resources and a large labor force, a producing economy, IBON said. All these indicate the growing distortion in the Philippine economy and in employment generation. The quality of work and, indeed, of pay, is markedly getting worse. This is because of long-standing neglect and continuing backwardness of Filipino agriculture and manufacturing, said the group.
