75% of C. de Oro’s 265,000 registered voters cast votes

CAGAYAN de Oro City––About 75 percent of the city’s 265,000 registered voters cast their votes during the barangay elections here on Monday, the Commissions on Elections (COMELEC) said on Tuesday. City COMELEC Supervisor Aleli Ramirez said that despite the perennial complaints in polling places during elections, the barangay elections here were generally peaceful. She said that the COMELEC received reports of alleged flying voters, vote-buying, and missing names in the voter’s list during the barangay election on Monday. Ramirez said that the COMELEC personnel addressed the missing name issue and the issue on alleged flying voters. She said that there were no flying voters at all since the new voters from other places have already transferred their registration in Cagayan de Oro City. According to Ramirez, some voters in a downtown polling center earlier had complained that voters from Lanao area cast votes in their precincts although these voters did not come from their barangay. She said that the poll watchers had also reported alleged vote-buying in some barangays here from P 20 to P 300. Ramirez suggested to complainants to file formal charges with the COMELEC so that disqualification proceedings against the violators could be undertaken. The barangay elections here officially opened at 7:00 a.m. Monday and officially closed at 3:00 p.m. on the LIAISON FOR THE COMMON GOOD. Governor Bambi Emano exercises same day.

Solons want CCTV installation mandatory requirement for firms To help solve crimes, lawmakers proposed that the installation of closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras be made a mandatory requirement for business establishments and government offices all over the country.

The solon-lawyer said one way to lower the high crime data is to install CCTV cameras in establishments. He cited crime data gathered by the Philippine National

Police (PNP) showing that from January to November 2011, the PNP recorded 230,817 crime incidents. “While the number is lower compared to previous years like in 2009 when 333,416 crime incidents were reported, the figure is still very high.

Coco farmers to get more support from DAR, PCA

CAGAYAN de Oro City–– Potential coconut based agrarian reform communities (ARCs) will soon benefit from the Kaanib Enterprise Development Project (KEDP), an integrated resource-service convergence approach which seeks on increasing farm productivity and income of small coconut farming communities. The Depar tment of Agrarian Reform in Region 10 (DAR-10) and the Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA) initiated a joint consultative meeting recently with the coconut-based

agrarian reform beneficiary organizations (ARBOs) to identify and prioritize potential areas for coconut plantation as well as other existing plantations to develop within its ARCs. Similarly, the Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) will also provide strategic and sustainable support services to the beneficiaries. “We have a lot of potential in our existing agrarian reform communities (ARCs) for coconut plantations.

Disorder, money rule brgy polls, says advocacy group By Walter I. Balane of MindaNews

MALAYBALAY City––Disorder and money politics marked the conduct of the barangay elections on Monday and on events that happened during the campaign, an advocacy group said. “Generally the polls showed a lot of disorder,” Emma Molina, chair of Barog Bukidnon said, citing the perennial problem of missing names of voters and vote-buying. Molina said the Commission on Elections (Comelec) only based its assessment that the polls were generally peaceful on “reports of no untoward incidents.” She said it is unacceptable for Comelec officials to treat as normal the scenario of voters who could not find their names on the list on election day. “They have to find ways and means to ensure this won’t happen again.” She said the problem was causing a lot of trouble for affected voters, some of whom ended up not being

able to vote. Molina also said money politics was evident in the run-up to the elections and on election day itself. She cited the sight of drinking sprees along the city streets during the last days of the campaign. “It’s just anywhere. Only God knows where this will lead us.” She said candidates for village council gave P20-50 per voter while aspirants for village chair shelled out P50-200 per voter. Candidates did not limit their handouts to cash. Some gave non-cash incentives like free rides to polling places, free breakfast, free accident insurance cards, noodles, and in many barangays, matchboxes pasted with names of candidates. Those who did not give cash gave freebies instead. For instance, a candidate for barangay council offered “free entrance” to the family-owned swimming pool, and issued a card per household good for five persons and valid only for

two weeks. Supporters of a candidate who handed P50 bills to voters said the money was for snacks on election day. Some voters were delighted to see that aside from cash, a candidate for village council supplied their precinct number. “Good that we don’t need to look for it,” a resident of Barangay Kalasungay in Malaybalay City told MindaNews on Monday. Supporters of some candidates in Valencia City were reported to have put up assistance desks near polling places to help voters find their precincts. They jotted down the precinct numbers on a sample ballot or a piece of paper printed with the names of some candidates. A candidate who vied for the village council in Barangay 7 in Malaybalay City said it is difficult to run for a village post because the voters are just in your neighborhood. “You will be forced GROUP | page 11

Teacher’s Role in Building Confidence among Students By ERLINDA NAVARRO MAGALLANES, P-II OIC – PSDS, BONIFACIO EAST DISTRICT, DIVISION OF MISAMIS OCCIDENTAL

The stage fright is one of the common problems of most students. This exists even on normal situations like oral recitations or answering query from the teacher. This fright may be present on a student perhaps because she is normally shy. Definitely, students in class have distinguished variations where there are outspoken or very silenttype of student. Silent type is typically a shy one. Once a person is shy, he is not open to the public. Instead, he just lurks in the corner and considers being alone. If not, his friends are only selected individuals to whom he can show him-

self and comfortable to be with. In situations like this, teachers have a very large role in lessening the anxiety and shyness of a student. She should be able to push him to interact with his fellow students by introducing him to a group or let him speak and make him feel that he belong. There is something that lacking in this kind of student. It is whether he resists to be known other than people he likes or he just lack self-reliance. The latter might be the reason why he has no confidence for himself. In this, the only key is to make him realize his value as a person by appreciating each good

thing he done. Further, a teacher would know that it is a very big help to him. Stage fright is something that everyone experienced like the one each of us has feel on our first day of school. Later on, we realize it’s just a matter of fighting between you move forward or backward. Once you move forward, you face everything in front of you and you build confidence in yourself. Eventually, you will realize that it’s already a habit and you have finally overcome your stage fright. And this is some kind of motivation that a teacher should put in the mind of the students.

Comelec says polls in Bukidnon towns ‘generally peaceful’; supporter ambushed

M

ALAYBALAY CITY – The conduct of Monday’s barangay elections in Bukidnon was “generally peaceful” based on the reports from the election officers of the province’s 20 towns and two cities, the Commission on Elections provincial office said.

Most election precincts closed by 3p.m. without any untoward incident except in Dangcagan town where polls in two of its 14 villages closed at 3:20 p.m., according to Anna Leah, Yabes, election assistant at the Comelec-Bukidnon. Closing of polls was delayed in Barangays Dolorosa and Miaray due to a power interruption caused by a lightning that busted the electrical system of their polling centers, she explained. The provincial police office, however, received reports that a supporter of a candidate for village chief was ambushed by followers of a rival candidate in Bagong Silang, Barangay Sta. Inez, Malitbog town at 11:15 a.m. on October 27, a day before the polls. The police spot report said a certain Jerry Eballe, 32, was hit in his left thigh and has been declared safe at a hospital in Cagayan de Oro City. In Kalilangan town two villages were included in the election watch list areas.

But election officer Perlita Tranquillero told MindaNews via telephone the elections went peacefully in Barangay Public (Don Jose) despite the reported “intense political rivalry”. She said the police sent enough personnel to the area to provide security. Another Kalilangan village, Barorawon, was included in the list due to the alleged “influence by a separatist group specifically Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF).” But Tranquillero said the area was “under control”. She added that only one candidate, Roel Ampatua, ran for village chief after his supposed opponent gave way, and only 12 candidates aspired for the seven-member village council. “This could have helped ease the situation,” she opined. Along with Public and Barorawon in Kalilangan, Sta. Inez in Malitbog is among the 135 villages in Bukidnon included in the election watch list areas.

Bukidnon has 464 barangays. ‘Usual problems’ Yabes admitted that “usual problems” like missing names of voters still happened but considered them “normal” election scenarios. Nicepura Talines, election officer from Malitbog who was detailed in Malaybalay City said the voters would soon find their names listed in other precincts. “It’s a problem that could be

addressed,” she added. The City Comelec reported that they received no complaints about voters who voted more than once in a precinct at the Malaybalay City Central School where voting for the poblacion barangays took place. However, Joy Echano, a candidate for village councilor of Barangay 4, told MindaNews that some voters were able to vote more than once.

“They just changed clothes so as not to be identified. That’s the building where they changed clothes,” Echano said in Cebuano, pointing to a school building. “That’s the reason why I lost in the previous barangay elections. I approached a policeman, but he said their job is only to maintain order so I have to go to the Comelec,” she added.(Walter I. Balane with a report from H. Marcos C. Mordeno/MindaNews)

Same rotten problems

Monday’s barangay elections were no different from those held in the past under different presidents and different elections chairperson. From the moment the vot ing pre cinc ts were opened all over the country, the same problems such as missing names of voters in the voters’ list, elections paraphernalia not arriving on time in voting centers, vote buying, the brazen violation of election laws by the candidates and or their supporters marred as usual Monday’s barangay elections. As usual also, the Comelec announced a peaceful, orderly and fraud-free election of village officials last Monday compared to past elections. There was nothing new that happened last Monday because as far as the Comelec is concerned all the mentioned problems that marred Monday’s elections are no longer unusual. If those problems did not mar the barangay elections, perhaps last Monday’s elections would be the most unusual electoral exercise ever held in our country. Probably this is the basis for the Comelec’s claim of a clean, peaceful and orderly election because it’s the same old rotten way of

A deeper view Jesse E.L. Bacon II holding an election. When will we ever see an electoral exercise held without the usual problems? Will it ever happen where voter’s names are not lost thus no one is ever disenfranchised against the voter’s will? Even with the automation of the electoral process, the preparation of the voter’s list remains archaic. Or is this being purposely done by the Comelec so that those they don’t want to be exercising their right to vote are deprived of such right? Until now I could not imagine why the Comelec cannot come up with a perfect voter’s list. Indeed I am puzzled by this phenomenon of voter’s names found missing in the list of voters prepared by the Comelec. Is the Comelec this inutile that it can’t perfect its job? Ev e r y e l e c t i on t h e

Comelec encourages every voter to go out and vote for it is their civic duty. But to the consternation of hundreds of thousands of voters, when they go to their assigned precincts, they could not find their names in the list of voters. The Comelec’s call for voters to go out and vote is a bankrupt call given their failure to ensure that indeed every voter is able to cast his vote. It is the Comelec’s responsibility to the nation also of ensuring that every vote is cast and counted in a manner that is immune from any influence either through force and intimidation or by vitiating the people’s will through vote buying and other forms of bribery or inducement. Sadly, however, until now the Comelec remains the same old rotten Comelec that does not know how to count, a Comelec that

does not know what clean, honest and orderly election is. This is the kind of Comelec this country has at the moment and had in the past. There is really no improvement in the kind of Comelec that we ever had. It is the same Comelec since elections were introduced in our country. Bleeding heart Many a heart bled when that 7.2-magnitude earthquake devastated Bohol two weeks ago. The damage it left is inestimable especially the damage to centuries-old heritage churches in several towns in Bohol. But I have wanted to ask this question but retrained my self from asking this question afraid that I might hurt the sensibilities of those from the Roman Catholic Church denomination. The question I have been longing to ask is if a natural calamity such as earthquake is considered an act of God, why would God allow his very own house and not just one house huh, flattened by an earthquake? I am really puzzled by this especially in light of Jesus’ threat to destroy the Temple and have it rebuilt in three day’s time. What is in the Temple that See rotten, page 11

For barangay winners: time to serve God LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “…‘Now your impurity is lewdness. Because I tried to cleanse you but you would not be cleansed from your impurity, you will not be clean again until my wrath against you has subsided’...” (Ezekiel 24:13, the Holy Bible). -oooTIME TO SERVE GOD, FIRST AND FOREMOST: For those who were blessed by God with victory in the just-concluded 2013 barangay elections, the time has come to prove your worth. Serve your constituents like you are serving God Himself, and you will never go wrong. After all, you owe your victory to no one else but God. Honor God, therefore, with your new positions, by putting Him first and foremost as you do your work. For those who lost, accept the defeat, for it is God’s will. No matter how you may want to believe that the results did not reflect the true vote of your constituents, it is God who willed your loss. The better thing to do now is, find out God’s message in what took place, and then act accordingly. Then, show grace in defeat by serving God all the more, through a service of love for the people around you. Who knows, God may yet see that you truly are a better person.

Kakampi mo ang batas Atty. Batas Mauricio For my brother, the newly-installed barangay chairman of Poblacion Center, Ramos, Tarlac, Chairman Ariel Lazo Mauricio, I extend my heartfelt congratulations. In the same manner, you must now show your gratitude to God for this sweet victory over the very man who took away your victory in 2010 and over those who conspired to rob you of your chance this 2013, by serving God, first and foremost. -oooPREACHING TO THE DEAD TO SAVE THEM FROM HELL: I have been challenged to prove that the Bible contains verses about the need to preach the Word of God to the dead. Let us point to just one verse today, while we will tackle the other verses in our succeeding issues. The first verse is 1 Peter 3:10. This verse says: “For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit.

After being made alive, he went and made proclamation to the imprisoned spirits---to those who were disobedient long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built…” Surely, this is a powerful verse about saving those who already died, even if they died in sin. There is hope for the dead sinners, for as long as we, the living, will continue to proclaim to them the Word of God. That is why, it is very important that we should read the Bible everyday, and make a conscious effort to address the verses that we read to the dead. Who knows how many souls we will save by this act! -oooEPIRMA CONVENTION, NOV. 09, 2013: Here is an announcement from Mr. Manny SD Lopez, the convenor of EPIRMA, or the Empowered People’s Initiative and Reform Movement Alliance: EPIRMA is holding a convention on Saturday, November 09, 2013, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Asian

The thing that can suppress all kinds of pollution WHETHER Provincial Board Vincent Pelaez of Misamis Oriental was innocent of the alleged “payoff ” that transpired leading to the unanimous passage of the resolution allowing the construction of a coal plant in the province does not matter at all. Pelaez, the majority floor leader, of the provincial board in Misamis Oriental is the only lawyer among the elected legislature in the province. Cris Diaz He said that he was handpicked by Vice Governor Joey Pelaez to act at the spokesperson relative to the “payoff ” issue for the construction of the P 30 billion coal plant in the province. There is nothing strange about choosing the young Pelaez to be the provincial board’s spokesperson and for his Vice Governor cousin. What makes people doubt was Pelaez claimed that he was innocent of the “payoff.” There were insinuation ‘though that Vice Governor Pelaez and the 12-member provincial board accepted “lobby money” from Filinvest Development Corporation. Granting without admitting that the “payoff ” did not exist, the people could not be blamed for casting doubts against the integrity of the members of the provincial board. It all started when Vice Governor Pelaez made a sudden 360 degree turned against his stand of the coal plant. Pelaez, as an educator, had campaigned against the coal plant because the plant was admittedly a rich source of deadly pollutants. Of course, the Filinvest Development Corporation would claim that their coal plant is safe and equipped with anti-pollution devices. However, no amount of antipollutant device could suppress pollution. Yet, there is one anti-pollution device that could suppress pollution of all kinds. And, that is “money.” Money has become the bone of contention on the See pollution, page 11

It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it. And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God? It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened: This is referred to the words of God which grows if it is sewed in our hearts. In Matthew13- Jesus taught about the different kinds of soils which mean the different kinds of hearts. Take note, the mustard seed can grow only if it is planted in the pure heart of a person. The effects are great since it will transform and renew a person to become good. This is the power of the words of God if it can penetrate in the four chambers of one hearts. In Romans 1:16-17-For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth. But we must bear in mind that there must be a human cooperation in order that the words of God will grow in one’s life. In Matthew 5:8-Blessed [are] the pure in heart: for they shall see God. What kind of heart do you have? In 2 Corinthians 13:5-Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY WATER DISTRICT Corrales Avenue, Cagayan de Oro City

NOTICE OF WATER RATES ADJUSTMENT In its desire to provide its existing customers with even better service and at the same time address the city’s fast growing demand for water, COWD intends to pursue its NRW reduction program and expansion projects. For these to be realized and brought to completion, it is necessary for COWD to implement the rates adjustment approved by the Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA) per Board of Trustees Resolution No. 84 dated June 17, 2011. However, putting the welfare and interest of the water consumers in mind, the approved 30% water rates adjustment shall be implemented on a staggered basis with an initial adjustment of 10% starting on November 1 this year. This adjustment will merely cover for the inflation of the cost of all consumables used in its operations like fuel, power and materials which have increased over the years since 2007 when COWD last implemented a rates adjustment. This brings the minimum charge of residential/government accounts from P168 for the first ten cubic meters to P184.80. Succeeding adjustments will be carried out on February 1, 2014 and May 1, 2014.

to shell out money even if you just walk by a corner where bystanders take rest over some refreshments,” he said. He said he had P2,000 one day and it was used up even before dusk. He said he avoided walking around those neighborhoods simply because he has no money. “I felt awkward campaigning where everybody gives anything and I don’t. I just think of the things I did in my last term and what more I can do if I win again,” he added. The incumbent candidates, he added, have the advantage but still need to give out some cash. “If you don’t, you might be surprised your votes already went to those whom voters think are more generous.” He added that some candidates for village chiefs also received funding support from local officials. Molina said that what is worse is that it’s no longer just a case of the politicians using money to lure votes. “It’s the voters who demand for it. They are the ones looking for the candidates who offer ‘ulan-ulan’ (a euphemism for cash offered in exchange for votes).” Molina said this is one reason why the problem will be here to stay unless earthshaking change happens. She said the voters no longer ask about a politician’s platform. “They look for the immediate gift.” As observed, most campaign materials did not contain the advocacies or platforms of the candidates, just their names and the positions aspired for. “For these voters, the candidates forum or the miting de avance, opportunities to hear the platforms of candidates, became a waste of time,” Molina said. In Kalasungay, a village of 3, 645 registered voters, more people flocked to where breakfast was served and gifts were distributed by supporters of rival candidates for village chief on election day than the miting de avance on Saturday night. A total of 3,045 or 83.5 percent of the voters actually cast their votes in the village. Molina noted that candidates and supporters were creative and resourceful, and even conducted surveys and research on voters’ data

Classhome By EUSEBIA ACAPULCO CENDANA, P-I, BONIFACIO CENTRAL SCHOOL, BONIFACIO EAST DISTRICT, DIVISION OF MISAMIS OCCIDENTAL

Each student considers her school as her second home where he can find comfort, care and love. That is the reason why most people call classrooms as classhomes. Definitely, it is not just a room but a home as well. Classhomes are students’ residence more than eight hours a day. Further, it is very important for a child to feel what is classhome. The teacher as the lead in that home should also show something beyond a teacher can do, she should also be a mother and a father while students are at her hands. A teacher should, of course, be a model to her students. Being one, practicing good moral character is a must. Her students are looking up to her and respect her, as well. In each action she make, abide is being careful in performing it. She should also be very observant as a mother. She sees to it that students are practicing values and right attitude in and out the classhome. She makes sure that what has been taught inside the class must also be applied outside. She should also extend her love to the students as what a father do. Teaching without love for the students is like a human body without soul, it is nothing. The love to teach and the love for students make her a true teacher. Being inlove with your work also pushes you to do your best in it. In addition, a teacher should also show care and passion on her students. A teacher should also be someone whom one can turn to like a guardian. Being an understanding teacher is someone who don’t just make the students understand her lesson but as well someone one who can make her students understand something he don’t understand. That is maybe about conflict, personal life or complex situations. Being a teacher is a being a public servant, a servant to people she doesn’t even know since. However, it is a good thing one should exercise because teaching school lessons to the students also meant molding young minds about life in reality. before handing out cash and non-cash incentives. She, however, stressed that even if poverty continues to influence such behavior on the part of voters there is still hope for change. “There are still people who stand and continue to choose candidates based on character, performance and platform.” She said advocates for good governance must look into the change needed at the village level. “This is one area where a lot should be done, where a lot should be initiated,” she added. She said that although this has become cliché, there is still no alternative venue for forming values other than the family. “Really, only God knows how this will work,” she said.

Cruz, meanwhile, stressed that proper organization could make the crop competitive in global markets. “The coconut commodity is one of the most important crops that will create a strong institution. We have to shift and strengthen our cooperatives, and see to it that they can create their own company by bridging together, therefore becom-

criminals think twice and reconsider. One very effective form of deterrent is the installation of CCTV cameras,” said the elder Rodriguez. The proposal mandates all business establishments employing more than 20 employees or workers and with work premises of not less than 50 meters in the country shall install and maintain, in good working condition, high quality surveillance or CCTV cameras in all their entrances and exits within the premises of their work area, the perimeter of their work areas or establishments, and other areas of their business to protect their patrons and deter crime. Moreover, the CCTV cameras should be able to clearly show the faces of the persons recorded. The bill also prohibits the installation of CCTV cameras in any restroom, toilet, shower, bathroom or changing room, and other similar areas. The owner or manager of commercial establishments shall maintain the privacy and confidentiality of the recorded video feeds which can be used when required in law enforcement.
