Town, village officials hail New Jian Hua Mining Corp Story and photos by GERRY LEE GORIT, Correspondent
CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY - VILLAGE officials yesterday lauded the New Jian Hua Mining Corp. for making the socioeconomic activities in Barangay Awang in Opol town, Misamis Oriental alive and kicking. Village chief Rommel Mansilao Sr. said the Barangay Council of Awang expressed its gratitude after the mining firm with Mr. Morito Estifaño, a representative from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), conducted the just-held tree planting activity. Mansilao said the New Jian Hua Mining Corp. through its officials––Mr. Brian Ilarde, Millie Fung, Kenneth Kho, and David Hay––donated 500 seedlings of Falcata. Estifaño, for his part, was optimistic that the seedlings will be able to grow with the help of the community. “It has to be taken cared off for it to grow,” he added. “Our role here is only to facilitate the tree planting,” said Estifaño, adding, he would ask that trees like Narra and Tugas (Molave) be also planted in the hinterlands of Barangay Awang. Estifaño also lauded the New Jian Hua Mining Corp. for holding–-and as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)––the tree planting. Aside from its reforestation and rehabilitation project, the village chief said the New Jian Hua Mining Corp. also distributed school supplies to hundreds of students of Awang Elementary School. School head Teonilo Salvan of Awang Elementary School said hundreds of pupils received an envelop of supplies containing notebooks, pad papers, ballpens and pencils from the New Jian Hua Mining Corporation. The mining firm, said Salvan, also conducted a food feeding program in an effort to help fight malnutrition. “Thank you for your gift of love to the pupils of Awang Elementary School,” Salvan told this reporter during an exclusive interview. On one hand, Mansilao was also grateful to the New Jian Hua Mining Corp. for the facelift of three barangay buildings which houses the barangay library, day care center, and clinic. The mining firm also donated dozens of books for the barangay library. In the next few days, Mansilao said the New Jian
Hua Mining Corp. will donate 15 sewing machines, including the fabrics, to Barangay Awang. He added that the mining firm will also facilitate the training of at least 15 women where they will undergo training on how to make bags, and how to become a master tailor for them to make a living. Estifaño said parents will also be trained on how to sew the uniforms of their children to avoid additional expenses. Likewise, Sangguniang Bayan Member Mikko Lagrosas thanked the New Jian Hua Mining Corp. for making its presence felt in the hinterland barangay of Manticao. Lagrosas, son of Manticao town Mayor Bobby Lagrosas, said the New Jian Hua Mining Corp. donated school supplies to preschoolers and elementary pupils in a school in sitio Malibato in Barangay Upper Malubog in Manticao town. The school supplies, said the town councilor, were of great help to children as they––more often than not––used recycled

notebooks. “Karon ra gyud ni sila (mga bata) og bag-ong notebooks, ball pens, ug pencils,” said Lagrosas as he threw his hats off to the New Jian Hua Mining Corporation. Lagrosas said the New Jian Hua Mining Corp. will also donate six sewing machines to Barangay Upper Malubog.

Dreaming of a prosperous nation THIS event still makes me inspired. On October 2627, in 2006, I attended an international conference held at the Subang villa in Selangor, Malaysia. One of the presenters presented the result of his research on political problems. There were actually 14 factors hindering a development in a country. But, among the 14 factors, there were three dominant ones which we have to pay attention. The first one is money politic. As long as this disgusting act occurs in any country, it can be predicted that the government will always find it difficult to develop the country. This is due to the assumption that, when money plays during the political campaign, the winner will be dragged into a lot of handicaps, hindering him to move on all his programs. He is indebted too much so that it makes him bogged down to do the initiatives. The second factor is being lack of infrastructures. It is related to the logistics. When a country is lack of the infrastructures, it can be predicted that the movement of goods and services in trade—in economic af-

fairs—will be also stagnant. The flow of goods, from one region to another, gets stricken. It will eventually create inefficiency in terms of logistics, spending a lot of time and energy. The third factor is the leaders having no trust at all from the people. When the leaders throughout the country have no trust from their people, the leaders will also find it difficult to shout their programs for implementation. What they think, say, and do will never get attention from their people and even their subordinates. Everything will be in stagnancy. Regarding the three vital factors above, any leader in any country should be selected and voted by the people based on their programs. These programs are the details of the vision and mission during the political campaign. All should be open and therefore trusted by the whole nation in the country. From the vision and mission, the people need to have been enlightened. So, education will comes first. So far, the people in general are only trapped by the promises being spoken by the candidates of the
leaders. Implicitly, when money politic still exists, it must be due to the people who get easily attracted---if not tricked---by the money. When the people in any country are still under the average of minimum level of education, they tend to be blind in politics. This blindness drags them into jeopardy: the money politics. All people should be made aware of the danger of the three factors above. We can be the eyewitnesses any time, looking at the fact in our life. Just take a look at any country which has good infrastructures and see the level of their people living. They are more prosperous than any country that has still many problems with logistics.

lifestyle is shaped by the ways of this world, ways that are 180 degrees opposite to the ways of God. And Christians love so much to flaunt their wrong piety by living a lifestyle shaped by the ways of this world. Christians come to church displaying their best apparels and expensive pieces of jewelry as if the worship service they are attending is some sort of a fashion show. And once a shabbily dressed person comes to church to worship God, they frown at that person as if that person’s poverty is God’s curse and their being wealthy is God’s blessings.
And like the Pharisee in the bible, they then thank God for they are not like those shabbily dressed worshipers who are in poverty because they were cursed by God. They then thank God for their wealth as the concrete manifestation of God’s blessing and love for them regardless if their wealth is the fruit of their oppression and exploitation of others who ended up not like them thus being dressed shabbily even in church. The behavior described above is only possible when one doesn’t have God in his or her heart. This is what secularism is all about. It is the absence of God in the heart of humans in particular and in society in general. If Uruguayan President Mojica can live simple life, can’t you and I not? It is the inability of the few to live simple life that moved Pope Francis to call for a new world order, a world order that is no longer shaped by the people’s trying hard to keep an expensive lifestyle and still want for more. The present world order is rotting to the bone. It is sick with cancer. The only
high speed of transportation always enjoy their efficiency and lead to their saving. The condition of bad infrastructures is due to mostly the “leaking money” for developing the country. And, this can be due to being “indebted”, making them unable to move on the programs: getting bogged down. When the leaders throughout a country are in this condition, the worse impact is related to the worse condition for their people’s lives. The key success is education. People who have been made aware of the danger of the three factors above will eventually lead to a better life for the whole country.

way its cancerous cells can be prevented from inflicting damage to everyone is a change in lifestyle. That lifestyle is dedicated to living a simple life, nothing more, and nothing less. The charges that Vice President Jejomar Binay is now facing are traceable to his changed lifestyle. Whereas before he ascended to the Makati city hall he only lived a simple lifestyle, nowadays, his and his family’s lifestyle became so expensive that even their combined income as public officials could not longer meet. The lifestyle they now have can only be sustained if they have lots of money. And since their legitimate income could hardly support their new lifestyle, perhaps this is the reason why buildings constructed by the city government of Makati had to be overpriced as proved in the ongoing Senate investigation on Binay’s corrupt ways. The new lifestyle that they were able to acquire when the elder Binay first became mayor of the See bacon, page A11

CAGAYAN de Oro City--A City Councilor is blaming City Mayor Oscar Moreno for the non-release of the Productivity Enhancement Incentive (PEI) bonus equivalent to one-month pay. City Councilor Prexy Elipe, chair of the city council committee on finance, ways and means, said that Moreno did not make a formal request to the local august body so that the
city council could enact an ordinance for the purpose. To recall, Moreno has announced the payment of a PEI equivalent to onemonth salary to all City Hall workers after the City

It is through this principle that barangay chairs from Bayanga, Dansolihon, Gusa, Lapasan, Nazareth, Pagatpat, Pigsag-an, Tumpagon and Tuburan accompanied their youth leaders at LeadCom launching last July 11 at Balay Mindanaw headquarters in Cagayan de Oro City and committed to support their young constituents all the way through the project implementation. After the approval of projects by the LeadCom Council, there will be turnover of seed funding on the second month of the initiative which is targeted to be in August. From September to January 2016, each project from the nine barangays will be imple-
mented with accompanying monitoring by the LeadCom Council. By February next year, the youth leaders in each barangay will meet once again for a so-called reflection camp. By March, all projects are expected to be showcased to society as model-templates. According to B a lay Mindanaw president Carlito Manlupig, LeadCom was created because they see that the youth when grouped together will be a strong sector that can enable community development and peacebuilding. “The youth is a potent human resource with the capacity to convey learn-
ing and become catalysts of change, they have important views about issues that both confront and represent them and other sectors,” Manlupig said. Since its inception in 2012, LeadCom has implemented 97 projects, all initiated by the youth at the barangay level with direct beneficiaries numbering to 6,771 and 827 volunteers mobilized.

A saying that possess hopeful impact. It has a long been a light bearer and so it is embedded in us and has been very helpful ever since. Amidst life challenges, as a mentor, we have seen the potential of our learners to be a good leader someday. However, being firm and dedicated to our mission to bring out the best of our learners potential are the qualities we must possess so we may be able to reach our goal and that is to provide our country a hope to prosper in the hands of the young of today. A famous motto says “Education is the key of success” And we mentors must see to it that best education must be provided to the children who will soon to be the bearers of bright future.
Elipe said that the LGU pays the PEI every yearend, but the local government can release the PEI in advance if the LGU gets the “Seal of Good Governance” award. Unfortunately, under Moreno’s leadership, the city government failed to live up to the DILG’s “Seal of Good Governance” criteria, which could be the reason why the city executive did not make a formal request with the city council, he said.
ment of the PEI equal to a one-month salary. However, for the record, the city council committee on finance has not received any request for releases for the PEI whether in partial Php 5,000 or PEI that would equal to the whole month salary,” Elipe said. The City Councilor also said that the amount of the PEI for release would also depend on the city’s performance under the “Seal of Good Local Governance”
Ayala Foundation, Balay Mindanaw assist Oro youth in molding community projects IN 2014, youth groups from nine barangays in Cagayan de Oro have successfully carved their projects which ranged from solid waste management, youth skills training and youth empowerment to advocacies on illegal drugs through LeadCom. The formation of LeadCom was the result of a joint initiative between Ayala Foundation and Balay Mindanaw for the youth to share ideas and evolve these ideas into tangible community projects at the barangay level to be implemented initially in Cagayan de Oro City.
program. He said that the DILG has set guidelines or conditions before any government agency could grant the one-time PEI at onemonth basic salary. According to Elipe, the LGUs should comply with the requirements under the Good Financial Housekeeping component of the FY 2014 Seal of Good Governance pursuant to DILG Memorandum Circular No. 2014-39.
Mayor vetoed the proposed ordinance granting a “loyalty bonus” to all City Hall workers on the occasion of the city’s charter day anniversary this year, Elipe said.

dents gathered for an outdoor meeting at the Pontifical Catholic University of Ecuador. God created man and woman for each other and gave them huge potential, the pope said July 7, but he also gave them — and gives each person — a mission to be part of his creative work. “I am giving you seeds, soil, water and sun,” the pope said God tells human
beings. God gave people hands and gave them one another; he gave everything as a gift, the pope said. Quoting from and explaining some of the principles in his encyclical letter on the environment, “Laudato Si’,” the pope said God created the world and everything in it not “so he could see himself reflected in it,” but in order to share it. “Creation is a gift to be
shared,” Pope Francis said. It is the place God gives humanity to exercise its creativity and to build a community of care and concern. “We are invited not only to share in the work of creation and to cultivate it, but to make it grow and develop it,” he said. At the same time, “we are called to care for it, protect it and be its

Andreas Gunawan wins the first SUZUKI ASIAN CHALLENGE wet race The SUZUKI ASIAN CHALLENGE (SAC) is SUZUKI’s rider development program produced and operated by Yukio Kagayama for Asian riders. The series Round 3 was held at Suzuka Circuit, Japan, meaning that it would be a home race for both SUZUKI and Kagayama. Suzuka, currently in the rainy season, was forcasted with rain throughout the race week, but the SAC riders were able to ride this world famous course in dry condition on day 1. Seventeen SUZUKI FU150’s lined up at Suzuka on this day. However, rain did hit Suzuka on day 2. Qualifying session became the first ever wet session for the SAC riders, and for this and the fact that Suzuka is one of the difficult tracks in the world, made it difficult for the riders, in addition to the
fact that this was the first time for most riders to run at Suzuka. In this condition, #24 Patis Chooprathet of Thailand, who won races in Malaysia and Indonesia, took pole position. Local favorite, #83 Takeru Murase qualified 2nd. And Andreas Gunawawan of Indonesia slipped into the last grid on the front row. The track conditoned worsened by Race 1, which took place on the same day. Andreas made a good start and took the whole shot, as Patis followed. Patis collided with an another rider, and retired, which made it easier for Andreas to run away. The wet track took away several more riders, and at finish, Takeru Murase came in second followed by #46 April King H. Mascardo of the Philippines making the first podium for the team.

legislative staff officers of Senators Pia Cayetano, Grace Poe and Aquilino Pimentel III, to seek aid to stop the presence and harassment of the military in Lumad communities and schools. Kharlo Manano, secretary general of Salinlahi Alliance for Children’s Concerns which is a convener of SOS Network, said that Cayetano’s legislative officer, lawyer Jill Sabitsana, said they are willing to hold a senate hearing about the militarization of the schools. Manano said Sabitsana asked for a list of who should be invited to the hearing. He said the AFP and the infantry battalions who were involved in the attacks must be invited together with officials of the Department of Education (DepEd). Meanwhile, Manano said the office of Senator Poe agreed to co-author Senate Resolution 1392 filed by Senator Miriam Santiago, which calls for a senate inquiry on the shutdown of Lumad schools. Poe’s staff also agreed to donate school books and other material aid to the affected schools. “If this senate hearing pushes through, it will be a good venue to really talk about the issue and to have all the parties involved to face each other, because, for the longest time, we have been bringing this issue to the local offices of DepEd, and even the AFP, but it has never been finished.” Cayetano’s legislative staff officers also agreed that there must be an onsite investigation. Cayetano heads the Senate committee on education, arts and culture. Poe heads the committee on public order and dangerous drugs, while Pimentel heads the committee on justice and human rights. “It will be a great help if the senate has a statement on how they will respond to this issue and problem,” said Ronnie Garcia, basic education head of the Salugpungan Ta Tanu Igkanugon Community Learning Center (STTICLC). He also said that the aid offered to them is a good thing since it will help IP communities “destitute for basic social services the government should be providing.” Percinita Sanchez, executive director the Mindanao Interfaith Services Foundation Inc. Academy (MISFI), said they appreciate the support offered, although they hope that there is assistance in “protecting the safety and security” of the community. The SOS Network said that from 2010 to May 2015, there have been 82 incidents of military harassment and
attacks involving 75 schools in Mindanao. Most of the attacks were in Region 11. “There has been so much discrimination towards the Lumad people. They have already been neglected for a long time and when the NGOs and people’s organizations come and help them, they are red-tagged,” said Sanchez citing the accusations that the teachers of the Lumad schools are members of the New People’s Army. Sanchez also hope that there will be an investigation on DepEd’s collaboration with the military in closing the Lumad schools. “There are really forces in society that would keep indigenous peoples illiterate so they can be easily manipulated and taken advantage.” (http:// bulatlat.com)

paraan ninyo masusuklian ang suporta at pagkalingang ibinigay sa inyo ng mamamayang Pilipino, ang ating mga Boss,” he said in his speech during the AFP Change of Command ceremony, held in Camp General Emilio Aguinaldo in Quezon City. The President lauded Iriberri’s excellent military record, which included a stint as commander of the Philippine Army’s 503rd Infantry Brigade, 5th Infantry Division, which was credited for the peaceful election in Abra province in 2013. “Ang balita ko, kahit sino man sa mga nakasama niya sa misyon, training, at exercises ang tanungin ninyo, very good ang ibibigay na marka sa bago nating Chief of Staff. Mula nga noong platoon leader pa lamang siya, basta siya mismo ang nagmamando sa operasyon, walang casualty sa kanyang mga tropa. Noong 2013 elections naman, nakadestino ang kanyang brigade sa Abra. Sa ilalim ng kanyang pagbabantay at ng kanyang mga tauhan, sa kauna-unahang pagkakataon ay walang barangay na nagdeklara ng failure of elections sa Abra, at walang naitalang election-related violence sa lalawigan,” he said. Meanwhile, in an open letter he read during the ceremony, General Iriberri extended his gratitude to every military personnel for “the untiring, selfless dedication that has become the hallmark of the Filipino soldier”. “I write this letter of thanks to you, my dear soldier, because it has not been said often enough, it has not been shown nearly enough. I write to say thank you for doing a good job, and to say forward march and fight on; with peace, secure the future,” he added. He laid down five priorities he wished to address during his term as AFP Chief of Staff -- winning peace; continuing the transformation made in the Armed Forces; imple-
God wants you to decide what is right S pecial G ospel of the day (July13, 2015-Monday) John 3:715”Do not be amazed that I said to you, `You must be born again.’ “The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” Nicodemus said to Him, “How can these things be?” Jesus answered and said to him, “Are you the teacher of Israel and do not understand these things? Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know and testify of what we have seen, and you do not accept our testimony. “If I told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? No one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended from heaven: the Son of Man. “As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life: You must be born again: This was referred to Nicodemus who hide in the dark in meeting Jesus. Jesus wanted him to get out from that dark life for him to show his conversion to the public. The Greek word of the word born again is “Metanoia” means change of mind. Have you ever
changed your mind in a certain decision in life? Some made a very wrong changed by deciding to live a miserable and sinful life. God wants you to decide what is right. It is not necessarily to transfer to other denominations to be saved because, being a catholic believer; the ingredients of our salvation are here already. Do not think that to be here in this church, renewal is impossible. It is not true; since transformations take place once you will for it and cooperate the grace that you have received during your baptism.

menting national policies; preparing for the 2016 national election; and upgrading the capabilities of the AFP. The new Chief of Staff also thanked the President for the modernization of the AFP. “Sa tagal ng panahon, ngayon lang uli nakahawak at nakagamit ang inyong kasundaluhan ng mga bagong kagamitang pangdigma. Kaya dapat lamang na suklian namin ng katapatan at serbisyong walang katulad ang ating bayan,” Iriberri said. Iriberri, who replaces General Gregorio Pio Catapang, Jr., belongs to the Philippine Military Academy’s (PMA) Matikas Class of 1983. Prior to his appointment as AFP chief, he served as the 56th Commanding General of the Philippine Army since February 2014. Iriberri was commissioned in the AFP Regular Force in March 1983 after graduating from the PMA. Although he was an infantry man, he also served in other fields of the Army, such as in intelligence, public relations and staff functions, and international peace sup-
port operations. In his almost 31 years of active service, he served as commander of the Task Group Panther “COMAG” of the First Scout Ranger Regiment in Central Mindanao from 1995 to1996. The unit killed 10 members of the Abu Sayyaf Group during an encounter in Lake Sebu, South Cotabato in 1996, without sustaining any casualty on its side. According to his profile, provided by the AFP, “he was instrumental in hastening the healing process” between the AFP and members of the Young Officers Union (YOU), the group of junior officers who prominently figured in the 1989 coup, the bloodiest launched against the Cory Aquino government. Iriberri holds a Master’s degree in Management and Defense Studies from the University of Canberra in Australia. He is also a recipient of various awards -five Distinguished Service Stars Medals, an Outstanding Achievement Medal, two Gold Cross Medals and numerous Military Merit and Commendation Medals. Iriberri is set to retire in April 2016. (PCOO/ PND)
