Electricity reaches rebel stronghold LANTAD, Misamis Oriental––For almost five decades, the haunting memories of this hinterland village of blood, tears, and sacrifices of the unsung heroes of contradicting creed would finally come to end as development finally reached its backyard. Last Tuesday, the symbolic switch-on of electricity in this former “communist rebel stronghold” in the ‘70s, changed the life of the tribal communities of the Higaonon Tribe as electricity lightened the village nook and cranny. The electrification of Lantad is a project of the “Whole of the National Initiative (WNI),” composed of all concerned stakeholders that took an active participation in bringing electricity in one of the far-flung villages of the town of Balingasag, 52 kilometers east of Cagayan De Oro City. Capt. Partick Martinez, spokesperson of the Army’s 4th Infantry Division, said Thursday that among the participants is the local government of unit of Misamis Oriental, private companies such as STEAG Power, Energy Development Corporation, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Soriano Philippines Community Health Foundation. He said that the village of Lantad became a mute witness to bloody See rebel, page A5

Abamin’s presumptive nominee to look after Muslims’ welfare By GERRY LEE GORIT, Correspondent

CAGAYAN de Oro City––With Abamin party-list saturating the various communities and stakeholders of Northern Mindanao, it is now high time for the party-list to look for an alternate nominee who will look into the concerns of Muslim residents in this region as well as that of the neighboring Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (Armm). This is the prevailing view of Cagayan de Oro-based community organizer Nelson Alonto-Sarapuddin who is groomed by

Abamin founder Rep. Rufus Rodriguez to be the second nominee of the party-list come 2016 elections. Even before he was pre-selected, Sarapuddin has been already active in local society. As charter president of the Metro Cagayan Eagles Club, Sarapuddin has spearheaded various projects in the city benefiting not just fellow Muslims, but all residents in the city, regardless of religion, age and orientation. Sarapuddin did not stop there. See welfare, page A11

PHL power sector grows by 1,043 MW M

By Juzel L. Danganan

ANIL A -- The power sector has s e en slow but stable growth over the past two years, as the Aquino administration draws near to its end next year. A report released by the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) showed that the three main islands--Luzon,Visayas and Mindanao, had an added total power capacity of 1,043 megawatts (MWs).

The NEDA, citing Department of Energy (DOE) data, said the Luzon grid has gained 606 MWs from 2014 until the second half of 2015. It is near the required power reserves of the island at 647 MW. Compared to the December 2013 figures, a total installed capacity of 12,919 MW -- the new 606-MW capacity is still promising. The report also stressed that in 2013, Luzon’s de-

pendable capacity only amounts to 11,494 MW, while its available capacity totals 8,822 MW. For the Visayas, the new installed capacity in the island totals 325 MW, adding to the installed capacity of 2,498 MW recorded on December 2013. However, the island had a dependable capacity of 1,984 MW during the same period, while it reached an available capacity of 1,653 MW. Mindanao, on the other

hand, has only gained 112 MW since 2014. It had an installed capacity of 2,125 MW during the end of

2013. Data also showed that for the same period ,the island had a dependable

capacity of 1,753 MW, while it had an available capacity of 1,262 MW. (PNA)

APEC pushes strengthening of agricultural biotechnology to ensure food security By Kris M. Crismundo

ILOILO CITY -- The Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) High Level Policy Dialogue on Agricultural Biotechnology (HLPDAB) Meeting kicked off here on Wednesday with discussions focusing on enhancing cooperation to strengthen agricultural biotechnology. APEC member-economies have considered agricultural biotechnology’s crucial role to improve produc-

tivity and resiliency in agriculture sector to ensure food security in the region. The HLPDAB Meeting, chaired by the Philippines’ Department of Agriculture Undersecretary Segfredo Serrano, aims to develop policy frameworks and strategies to develop and commercialize beneficial biotechnology and their products. “We will discuss not only the

experiences of the APEC economies on agricultural biotechnology but as well as emerging trends, and of particular importance would be regulatory issues as well as harmonization issues,” Serrano said. “We will attempt to harmonize so as not to unduly hamper the trade and development of this technology that can be utilized for agricultural development and improving agricultural productivity,” he added. The two-day HLPDAB Meeting will focus on the following key areas: -fostering the benefits of innovations in plant breeding and science communication; -policy approaches and initiatives, challenges and considerations to managing low-level presence situations; -policy considerations and current practices on co-existence of agricultural production system; and -recent developments and potential applications of animal anima biotechnologies. It was noted that biotechnology will help agricultural products withstand challenges facing the agriculture sector such as climate change, making them more resilient. Food security is crucial in the APEC economies as 70 percent of the hungry population globally are in the Asia Pacific region. Iloilo City is currently hosting the HLPD on Food Security and the Blue Economy which will conclude on Oct. 6. (PNA) ERRATUM

WASTE MANAGEMENT NEEDS CONCERTED EFFORTS By Mrs. Mary Ann Baslot To-ong Ground Zero Waste Management Coordinator San Vicente Elementary School San Vicente, Butuan City

Waste management is a duty everyone should assume. Parents should instill in their children the importance of cleanliness at home. Managing litter and wastes doesn’t need much effort if undertaken regularly. Better, if done by the whole family in the spirit of cooperation. On a larger scale, a school or community cannot normally operate without waste collection, recycling, storage and disposal. For lack of proper waste management, schoolchildren and community members may be exposed to

diseases, and may impact on the environment. While we had been into our own cleanliness drive in San Vicente Elementary School, the launch of the Butuan City government’s Clean Ground Zero Waste Management Program two years ago made more vigorous our campaign against waste and garbage with the participation of parents and the community through the initiative and leadership of our school principal, Mrs. Rosemarie B. Bahan. Aside from the trash bin we required to each classroom,

we also provided receptacles for bio-degradable, non-biodegradable and recyclable wastes as well as a stockroom for recyclable materials. We put up a compost pit for biodegradable materials to produce fertilizers for use in planting pepper, onion and tree seedlings. Since the students were responsible for the seedlings they sowed, their joy became touching scenes as the plants slowly but surely began to grow, bloom, and in time, flower and bear fruits. On September 10, 2015, I received for San Vicente Elementary School a certificate of recognition as first placer in the Display of Recycled Materials in Southwest District

Sitting on top of a volcano SYRIA is like a powder keg. Since some hours, it’s official: Russia has carried out an air strikes in Syria. After winning approval to send troops abroad, the Russian military has conducted air strikes near Homs, a rebel stronghold in Syria. Rebels have slammed Russia’s intervention, claiming the airs trikes killed civilians. I am writing this piece on Thursday (October 1, 2015. Last night, US officials confirmed that Russia launched air strikes near the Syrian city of Homs, known as a rebel stronghold since the early day of the war-torn country’s civil war. “They gave us a headsup, they were going to start striking in Syria,” a US defense official told AFP news agency. The Russian defense ministry also confirmed the air strikes. In accordance with the decision of the Armed Forces Supreme Commander of the Russian Federation, official press releases, Russian air forces today began pinpointing strikes against ISIS (IS) targets on the ground on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic. The air strikes follow the Russian Federal Council’s vote, giving unanimous approval for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s request to deploy troops abroad. Allow me to ask: Rebels or militants? Putin’s request did not specify where the troops would be deployed, though Russia has built up its military presence in Syria, where

Klaus Doring

it supports the government forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Khaled Khoja, president of the oppositional Syrian National Coalition, said on his Twitter account that the air strikes left 36 civilians dead. “All the targets in today’s Russian air raid over northern Homs were civilians,” Khoja said. Another Twitter account affiliated with the Syrian rebel movement claimed that the civilian deaths included children. The account also said that the air strikes were targeting the rebel headquarters in “liberated areas.” A US official told Reuters news agency that the Russian air strikes did not appear to be targeting areas held by the militant group “Islamic State.” So? Assad in or out? The air strikes follow Putin’s speech to the UN General Assembly on Monday in which he said that Russia was ready to join the “fight against terrorism” and strike “Islamic State” targets.

I still remember Putin in telling the UN General Assembly, “We proposed that the fight against terrorism be incorporated into a binding international document and no country be allowed to use terrorism for the purpose of intervention in the affairs of other countries.” Putin has consistently sided with Syria’s al-Assad, telling members of the international community that a viable political transition must include the Syrian president. However, the question of al-Assad’s inclusion in a political solution has left many countries divided, with the US stating that Syria’s future cannot include the Syrian president. French President Francois Hollande also believes al-Assad has no place in a political solution for the war-torn country, with the Paris prosecutor’s office launching an investigation into the Syrian president’s complicity in war crimes and crimes against humanity. And? Powder keg Syria and its war-full surroundings, keep on affecting Europe. Pictures are getting seldom, but it’s known that daily ten thousand refugees are still entering mostly Germany. A fatal attraction for whole Europe. Politically and economically. +++ Email: doringklaus@ or follow me on Facebook or Twitter or or

(Proverbs 25:5, the Holy Bible). -oooARE MANILA MEDIA AFRAID OF DUTERTE? Are Metro Manila mainstream media entities afraid of a Rodrigo Duterte presidency? I think, yes, they are so afraid that Duterte, the well-loved mayor of Davao City on account of his tough stance against crime and corruption in his jurisdiction, will become president of the Philippines in 2016. And why should Manila

media be afraid of a President Duterte? Maybe they can smell the possibility that the perks and privileges enjoyed by them under Presidents who were chummy-chummy with them through the years will no longer be enjoyed by them under Duterte. This may be the reason why the media in Manila did not even report anything about the Luneta gathering of Duterte supporters last September 26, 2015, even if hundreds of thousands of people clearly filled every square inch of space from the Luneta Grandstand up to the DMCI Towers, thereby making the affair a newsworthy event.

-oooLUNETA GATHERING FOR DUTERTE PHENOMENAL: That Luneta gathering was phenomenal. There was no media hype nor blitz that preceded nor announced it. There was no single individual or group that brought people to Luneta to enable them to participate in the gathering. There was no food nor water, nor payment of any kind for any expense, particularly for transportation. Yet, hundreds of thousands came, armed only with one burning desire---to convince Duterte to run for president in 2016. Surely, that gathering for Duterte scared the wits out of the

My last dollar and Duterte NOW I can bet my last dollar, Mayor Rodrigo Duterte of Davao City, will be our next president. This is one prediction that won’t fail after reading his mind and feeling of the gathering of supporters at the Quirino grandstand last Saturday. He was so touched, he was so moved that he asked for just a short moment to give his final decision on running. More than 50,000 people reportedly gathered at the Rizal park to ask him to run, a matter no one can refuse. I am one Filipino, so glad and happy about the latest development that revolves around the country. With all honesty, our country needs a good leader to rescue it from collapse. It has suffered so much cruelty from the hands of many government officials whose objectives were to enrich themselves at the expense of the taxpayers. See DOLLAR, page A11

Court clears Bigcas of criminal charges By CRIS DIAZ Executive Editor

CAGAYAN de Oro City-A Regional Trial Court in Bukidnon has acquitted the controversial Lynard Allan S. Bigcas of criminal charges on the ground of “reasonable doubt.” In a 17-page decision penned by RTC Judge Jose U. Yamut, of Branch 11 in Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon, the court also ordered the return of the bond for the provisional liberty of Bigcas

armed skirmishes between the communist rebels of the New People’s Army (NPA) and the government troops at the height of the insurgency in the mid-seventies. The military regained total control of the communist guerilla turf in the mid-90s after hundreds of military operations that cost the lives and limbs of both the government troops, the NPA fighters, and residents of the Higa-ono tribe in Lantad and neighboring villages. Since then, both the national and local government unit pulled their resources together to alleviate the plight of the IPs in Lantad, about 16

to the bondman. The case docketed under Criminal Case No. 1108-4334 charged Bigcas, of Poblacion, Talakag, Bukidnon, with illegal possession of firearms and ammunitions after the elements of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), armed with a search warrant, recovered from Bigcas house high powered firearms and ammunitions for assorted firearms in his house last May 3, 2011. During the arraign-

ment, Bigcas pleaded not guilty of the charges, which resulted in the trial on the merits of the case, the Court said. The court said that Bigcas presented documents showing that he owned one or two licensed firearms as certified by the Firearms and Explosive Department (FED) in Camp Crame, Quezon City. During the raid on May 3, 2011 in the house of Bigcas, the raiding team also seized eight vehicles

kilometers southeast of Balingasag, a central coastal town east of Misamis Oriental. Martinez said that the electrification project became possible through the support of the 58th Infantry Battalion, the 403rd Infantry Brigade and the 4th Infantry Division of the Philippine Army. Maj. Gen. Oscar T. Lactao, commander of the Army’s 4ID, pushed the realization of the project endeavor to help the less-fortunate Lumad brothers in Misamis Oriental, Martinez said. During the ceremonial switch-on, Lactao said that poverty is one of the causes of the insurgency. “Thus, aside from farmto-market road, water system, education, livelihood pro-

gram, and health, electricity and power are one of the infrastructures that have a very high impact on poverty reduction,” Lactao said. He said that the WNI brought the government projects to Misamis Oriental’s deprived tribal communities as part of the government’s advocacy that “walang maiiwan sa bayan ni Juan,” (no one in the country would be left behind), Lactao said. The project with the theme: ”Pakigtambayayong Alang sa Kahiusahan ug Mahayag nga Kaugmaon” (A unified effort for peace and vibrant future) aims to promote peace and uplift the living conditions of our marginalized Indigenous People.

However, the court said that the eight vehicles could not be admitted or be part of the evidence presented since the object of the search warrant was for the two firearms only.

Davao City Bulk Water project seen to protect aquifer


AVAO CITY -The P12-billion Davao City Bulk Water Project to be undertaken by the Davao City Water District and the Apo Agua Infrastructura Incorporated will protect

the city’s groundwater. According to Atty. Bernard Delima, DCWD spokesperson, said there are indications that Davao City’s groundwater supply is being overextracted. “There is really a need



#s: 09206771674 09491283640

to rest our groundwater.” Delima said. DCWD sources 99% of its water supply from natural aquifers. The project entails D CWD buying water from Apo Agua who are obligated to deliver about 300 million liters of water per year at a buying price of P12.25 per cubic meter. The Tamugan River will be utilized as source of the surface water for the project. P10-billion will be spent on part A of the project which will involve the development of the

treatment plant and other facilities in the Tamugan River while P2-billion to be undertaken by DCWD will be spent on part B which will establish the reservoir. Delima said that Tamugan’s water is of good quality, likening it to Dumoy aquifer because of its clarity and taste. Dumoy water has been dubbed as the world’s second best water. Apo Agua is a joint venture between the Aboitiz Equity Ventures and J.V. Angeles Construction Corporation.

Bobby Orig, first vicepresident for Mindanao of Aboitiz Power said the plant is the first in the country to have a power plant constructed for the treatment plant. The two megawatt hydro power plant will just be enough to power the facilities. He also said that the water will flow to the pipes through gravity, rather than being pumped by pumping stations. DCWD is paying P400 million per year in power costs majority of which is consumed by the pumping stations.

“In case of brown-outs, the plant will still deliver water,” Orig said. He also added that the project will only entail about 1% of the conservation area of the Talomo watershed. According to Delima, they are finalizing the key points being agreed with the Watershed Management Council before it will be passed to the Davao City Council for approval. The bulk water project is planned to be operational by 2019. (PIA/RG Alama)

Fortun, Lagnada announce team-up in 2016 elections B By PAT SAMONTE

UTUAN CITY – Ending weeks of speculation, Agusan del Norte First District Representative Lawrence Lemuel Hernandez Fortun and construction mogul Engr. Ronnie Vicente Conde Lagnada have announced on Tuesday their team-up in next year’s elections before wildly-cheering 3,000 chairpersons, council members and supporters from all of this city’s 86 barangays at Big Daddy’s Convention Center here. Under the Bando Lawig banner, Fortun will run for reelection while Lagnada will challenge incumbent Mayor Ferdinand Amante, Jr. for this city’s top post. Amante earlier announced he would seek reelection. Fortun and Lagnada’s team-up has unified local political forces led by former Congressman Jose Aquino II and former Mayor Democrito D. Plaza II now headed by City Councilor Derrick Plaza. Aquino will be Lagnada’s vice-mayoral bet while Plaza

will run for reelection. In his speech, Fortun lamented what he called “sinister initiative” against him by some local officials in the Liberal Party national leadership and “baseless criticisms” hurled by paid radio commentators. The young solon noted that since the passage of the Butuan City Watershed Code during his term as this city’s vice-mayor, no strong effort has been taken by the local administration for the protection, conservation and rehabilitation of the Taguibo Watershed, which is the primary source of water of Butuan’s 200,000 consumers. It was gathered that Fortun has alloted infrastructure projects to Butuan City some P1 billion and P2.28 billion in 2014 and 2015, respectively, aside from classroom buildings and scholarships to students. In his State of the City Address on last August 20, Amante acknowledged and thanked Fortun for the proj-

ects the solon brought to the city. Lagnada said his entry into politics and government service maybe a sacrifice on his part as he would leave one of the biggest construction company in the country. “Now is the time to introduce reforms and focus

more on economics and policy-setting to generate industries and provide jobs for the people,”Lagnada revealed. The businessman said, “I think I can do it” and called on Butuanons for support to enable him to put into action his plans to which a huge

banner with “RCL” marking was unfurled by supporters in the audience amid long loud cheers of R…C…L (for Ronnie Vicente Conde Lagnada) repeated several times. Joining Plaza in the Fortun-Lagnada camp are incumbent Sangguniang

Junk coal plant, groups urge DENR Editorial: e-mail: • Advertising: e-mail: Contact: 0917-7121424, 0947-8935776



nviron mental ists f r o m Palawan have brought their fight against “dirty coal” to the national capitol, as they called to protect the island, dubbed as the country’s last pristine frontier, now threatened with the local government’s push for the operation of a coal-fired power plant.

Groups led by the Palawan Alliance for Clean Energy (PACE) and trooped to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the House of Representatives on September 30, to submit their petition opposing the application for a 15-megawatt coal-fired power plant of the DM Consunji Holdings Inc. (DMCI). DMCI’s application for an environmental compliance certificate (ECC) for the coal plant project has been pending at the DENR, after Palawan local govern-

ANTI-COAL. Palawan environmentalists call on the Department of Environment and

Natural Resources (DENR) to also thumb down the DM Consunji Holdings Inc. (DMCI) coal-fired power plant. Photo courtesy of D.Ayroso/

ment units gave their green light for the project. DMCI had been criticized by various groups for destructive mining, human rights violations, and the construction of Torre de Manila, which is being opposed for “defacing” the view of the Rizal monument. The environmentalists lamented that Palawan local officials are pushing for “dirty energy,” when the area is teeming with renewable sources of energy. “Palawan has 17 key biodiversity areas, two (United Nations) World Heritage sites, and virtually the whole province – consisting of 1,780 islands – is a virtual protected area, protected by

so many laws,” said lawyer Gerthie Anda of the Environmental Legal Assistance Center (Elac) during a press conference. “It’s sad that they’re still pushing for coal,” Anda said. The groups also brought with them the Palawan Island Power Development Plan, a study funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID), which says that the cheapest and biggest source of power is renewable energy. The study was endorsed by Energy Secretary Jericho Petilla, and the same local officials who recently endorsed the DMCI coal plant. The online petition

against the coal plant had garnered 6,000 signatories, among them were: Patricia Ortega, widow of slain Palawan environmentalist and broadcaster Dr. Gerry Ortega, Puerto Princesa City Bishop Pedro Arigo, Northern Palawan Bishop Edgardo Juanich, Climate Change Commissioner Naderev Sano, iconic folk singer Lolita Carbon, and Gina Lopez of ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation. The same petition is also being circulated and gathering signatures in schools and churches, the groups said. “As the government’s main agency tasked with preventing further environ-

mental degradation in the country, DENR should turn down the DMCI’s coal plant project in Palawan which will destroy its precious ecosystem,” the petition said. On May 28, the Palawan Council for Sustainable Development’s (PCSD) gave a Strategic Environmental Plan (SEP) clearance to the DMCI, a subsidiary of the David M. Consunji Holdings Inc., to build the coal plant, to the consternation of local groups and environmentalists who had opposed the coal project in the past three years. In June, the Makabayan bloc in congress filed a resolution calling for a probe on the PCSD approval of the project. ‘Dirty’ energy The environmentalists warned of adverse impact on the environment and human health if the coal plant pushes through. Anda said the SEP clearance for the coal plant requires high-quality coal, with low content of sulphur and heavy metal. “But the coal that will be used by DMCI will come from Semirara, and we know that Semirara coal is of low quality,” she said, referring to the Semirara coal mine, also owned by DMCI. Anda cited that although DMCI said the plant will

have electrostatic smoke precipitators to absorb sulphur and nitric oxide, there are none to absorb the carbon oxide, and there will still be pollution. She added that the bottom ash that will come from the coal plant is planned to be sold to cement plants, which will even compound the problem, there being no study on the impact on health of cement made from bottom ash. On the other hand, Anda said Palawan has 100 rivers, which can be tapped for run-of-the-river mini hydropower projects. Bad track record In 2012, DMCI entered into a power supply agreement with Palawan Electric Cooperative (Paleco) which provided for the putting up of the coal plant, as among the sources of power. Cynthia del Rosario of PACE noted that DMCI had committed violations of its contract when it failed to deliver the needed power supply. “We cannot trust DMCI anymore … for three consecutive months, there was a string of brown outs as they promote the coal plant. How can we trust this company which has a bad track record?” she said. Lessons learned from mining

One research on abaca that is supported by PCAARRD is the functional genomics of abaca through gene discovery and molecular markers. The research is being conducted at the University of the Philippines Los Banos. Genome sequencing of abaca is helping researchers find DNA markers that characterize genes and their desired characteristics to improve fiber quality and resistance to the Abaca Bunchy Top Virus. Genome mapping R&D reduces virus infestation by 60 percent,

according to PCAARRD. The Visayas State University in Baybay, Leyte, has developed a diagnostic kit for the identification of the virus. All these – in a package of technology for abaca hybrid production – to increase yield by 42 percent, Lalusin says. Another R&D program supported by PCAARD looks at abaca fiber for specialty papers, textile and high-end products. It is on-going at the Forest Products Research and Development Institute, Philippine Textile Research Institute and the Philippine Nuclear Research Institute. SciencePhilippines

Biotechnology helps poor man’s crop

Genome sequencing of abaca is helping researchers find DNA markers that characterize genes and their desired characteristics to improve fiber quality and resistance to the Abaca Bunchy Top Virus.

Biotechnology is helping revive declining abaca farms that would otherwise bring in dollar earnings. The abaca industry generated foreign exchange earnings amounting to US$ 80 million yearly from 2001 to 2010, according to the Fiber Industry Development Authority. As the world’s leading abaca producer, the country provides about 85 percent of the total world abaca requirement with the remainder supplied by Ecuador. More than half of the produce goes to the manufacture of pulp. There is also a high demand for abaca cordage,

ropes and twine; yarns, fabric and textile, handicraft, specialty paper raw material and, recently, for automobile dashboard and car interior composites. For all that, abaca remains a poor man’s crop, the low return forcing farmers to plant other crops, decreasing abaca production in recent years. Ecuador, the other major producer, and Indonesia, a wannabe, are just waiting to fill the vacuum. To slow if not halt the competition, the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCAARRD) wants to reverse the lack of

high-yielding and virusresistant planting materials and prevent pest and disease pressures. The Abaca Bunchy Top Virus is widespread in Eastern Visayas, one of the top abaca-producing regions in the country. The Bureau of Agricultural Statistics estimates that abaca production in the region amounted to 20,000 metric tons in 2011, making it the second highest producer of abaca, next only to the Bicol region. In 2011, some 39, 500 hectares of land were planted to abaca. Some 19,107 hectares of plantations in Leyte and Southern Leyte are also af-

3,000 Pantawid Pamilya beneficiaries to celebrate National Family Day in CDO By Charmaine P. Tadlas of DSWD

Cagayan de Oro City -- Over 3,000 beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program will attend this year’s National Family Day dubbed as “Tuloy ang Pagbabago!” at Pelaez Sports Center here on Sunday, October 4, 2015. Hosted by the Department of Social Welfare and Development, the event will highlight the positive contribution of poor families in uplifting their lives through responsible parenting, family development, community participation, community volunteerism, and sustainPantawid Pamilya families celebrate last year’s National Family Day through fun-filled able livelihood.

When the light is on When the light is on and the services are ready, positive change can happen. In an islet barangay of Sering, municipality of Basilisa in the Province of Dinagat Island, sweet couple Jimmy and Bella Sinugbuhan are living at peace with their four children, namely Bengie, Ariel, Sharie Yves, and Scarlette Jianah. Their humble family is one of the Set 1-A registered partner-beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program after their family was enumerated last 2008. Identified as a family at the survival level during the first wave of the Social Welfare Indicator (SWI) matrix, tangible documents show how the couple crossed fingers to raise their children amidst poverty. Helping each other as a family Jimmy sails the ocean for food. The needs of the family demand more from Jimmy to do extra-efforts to fully assist and sustain the needs of his children especially that he has two (2) children enrolled in college at this time. Other than being a fisherman, he also works as a carpenter. Bella on the other hand sells “kakanin” in their barangay and in schools to help her husband. Sometimes, she assists Jimmy in pitching the fishing nets. The couple shares the many times they eat “kamote” since their income goes directly to the needs of their children in school. Despite the odds of life, they continue encouraging each other that one day, with combined efforts, trust and love, they will surpass all the trials. During the graduation day of their eldest son Bengie, the couple realized that all efforts pay off when their children receiving their

diplomas. Their being genuine people are manifested in all the things that they do. Jimmy as an active former barangay captain continues to show the qualities of being a good leader to his neighbors and to his family. He continues to attend community meetings, barangay consultation meeting and even invited meetings from the municipal level. He encourages his sons and daughters to study hard since the couple believe that education would be their greatest gift to their children. Bella at the same time shows her cara to her sons and daughters by reprimanding them when they commit mistakes and explaining to them the consequences of their actions. She also inspires her children to study hard because it’s only through education that they could give them the things they desire in life. Aside from being a good mother, Bella is also a good “baryohanon” (a member of the society who is active in all community activities). Bella shares how Pantawid Pamilya has changed her perspective in helping others best (She is now serving as Barangay Kagawad in Barangay Sering years after she became the Federated Vice- President of Pantawid Pamilya in their locality). Her position as Barangay Kagawad hasn’t stopped her to continue her assignments as a parent leader. Bella imparts that it is through Family Development Session (FDS) that gives her additional knowledge about family, community, love, rights and many more. Her participation in various activities has made Bella a desirable person. To note, Bella is the Federated Presi-

dent of the Municipality of Basilisa Women’s Association, Federated Vice-President of Pantawid Pamilya during the early years of program implementation in their municipality. Other than this, Bella also attended seminars on Project Proposal Writeshop, Provincial Business Enhancement and Education Seminar for Business Enterprises and Cooperatives, Environmental Summit; was awarded by PhilGrassRoots-ERDF as one of the Best Mangrove Conservation Advocate in Barangay Sering, successfully completed the Skills Training on Peanut Processing, recognized for her untiring support on Responsible Parenting MovementNatural Family Planning Program (RPM-NFP), has attended workshop on Solid Waste Management and Environmental Engineering, has attended training on Capability Building for Parent Leaders sponsored by DSWD FO-Caraga, attended Gender Sensitivity Trainings and a lot more trainings to count. Fruits of their love The dedication of the couple in helping others and their intention to surpass the challenges in life dwells in the blood of their children. Their eldest son Bengie graduated his degree on Bachelor of Science in Criminology at North Eastern Mindanao Colleges in Surigao City, Surigao del Norte. Now, he is working as Police Inspector in Alegria, Agusan del Norte. Ariel, their second son has just received his license as Civil Engineer last December 2014 and now working as a technical facilitator of the KALAHI CIDSS program. Also, Ariel was the only recipient of the Commission on Higher

Education (CHED) One Town One Scholarship Program after he passed the techy entrance examination of the said agency. Sharie Yves at the same time is a recipient of the Tulong Dunong Scholarship program of CHED funded by Congresswoman Bagao. She is now a third year college student taking the degree Bachelor of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Management in Surigao State College of Technology in Surigao City. She just finished the Food and Beverages Services NC II for Six (6) months under the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) social services program. The couple’s youngest Scarlette Jianah is now a grade five (5) student and is a consistent first honor student of Sering Elementary School (SES). She is the consistent representative of SES in all MetrobankMathematics Teachers Association of the PhilippinesDepEd Math Challenge (MTAP-MMC) competition in their cluster. Other than being a good math student, Scarlette is also a declaimer in their school. These achievements are brought by trust and disci-

various national government agencies and nongovernment organizations which have helped improve the lives of the beneficiaries. The event will also serve as a celebration among children beneficiaries who became recipients of education and health assistance from the national government. In partnership with other national government agencies, the DSWD implements the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program as an investment of human capital among poor families by assisting them in their children’s health and education, and in strengthening family and community development. Through Pantawid Pami-

lya, the DSWD provides cash grants amounting to a maximum of P1,400 per poor family for their children’s health and education, provided that they comply with certain conditions set by the Program such as enrolling their children to school, sending them for periodic check-ups, and attendance to Family Development Sessions facilitated by the DSWD and its partners. The National Family Day will also present the provincial “Huwarang Pantawid Pamilya” from the municipalities of Don Carlos in Bukidnon, Catarman in Camiguin, Kolambugan in Lanao del Norte, Jimenez in Misamis Occidental, and Cagayan de Oro City.

pline within Sinugbuhan’s family. The unity that is inherent within their family has made them the person they are now today. Responsible parents, community members The dedication that is imminent within them has grown so vividly that even their neighbors are encouraged and inspired to follow what Sinugbuhan’s family has done to their family and to the community they are living in. Pantawid Pamilya has helped them to start a life. As Bella claimed, if not because of Pantawid Pamilya, she could not pay on-time the school fees, could not buy enough vitamins for Scarlette, and perhaps, could not learn some of her rights as a woman, the rights of the child and many more through the FDS that she is attending every month. Other than being an active partner-beneficiary of Pantawid Pamilya, Sinugbuhan Family is also an active member of the Sustainable Livelihood Program. Bella’s group was able to attend the Hog Raising (Natural Farming Technology System) Training before their group was granted with 10 head piglets as their group’s starter kit.

The couple has also shown an active involvement in the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (KALAHI CIDSS) implementation in their barangay. Hon. Barangay Captain Rodrigo S. Bete of Sering shared his observation about the couple on how they encouraged other volunteers to support the implementation of the program so their sea wall project will be established at the given timeline. Furthermore, Bella’s position as a Barangay Kagawad has made her support and sustain their project on the conduct of feeding programs and Pamaskong Handog to persons with disability and solo parents in their community. Based on the SWI-Wave 4 (As of November 30, 2013), Sinugbuhan Family has taken steps upward from the survival level of well-being, now as a self-sufficient. These are all made true with the combined efforts of their family and the various interventions given by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and other partnernon-government agencies (###DSWDFieldOfficeCaragaSocialMarketingUnit###).

You are not aware of who you are. You need to discover first yourself because you have many potentials, talents, courage and power to do a big difference on this earth. You need to study the kind of life do you have. You need to know that you were

The majesty of God is revealed in every good thing that you have done to him and to others. You need not to look others but look at yourself always. Mind your own business on this earth instead engaging the businesses of others although you have no right to do such thing in their lives. Mind

A challenge to the 21st Century Teacher By Editha F. Gagarra, Master III Kadingilan Central Elementary School Kadingilan, Bukidnon

Teaching is vocation, mission and profession. Teaching call and has a mission to fulfill with intelligence and wit, resourcefulness, creativity, and passion that will somehow change every young mind into a man and woman in character and undeniably a productive citizen, says Professor Ed during one of his classes. With these, a teacher is armed with a determine spirit that in little ways can contribute to the learners’ future. Class of learners whose background is somewhat peculiar to the way she expects him to be encompassed to instructional plans and even the desired

discipline where could meet pupils dire need. Such leads a teacher to realize learners are listening yet have earphones, studying lessons yet watching a TV program, reading a book yet with gadgets beside , and worst making reports with the gadgets that seem to be a distraction to his purpose. Are we going to give them restrictions? Twentyfirst century learners are born with gadgets to manipulate. Alvin Toffler told, “The illiterates of the 21st Century will not be those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.” Gone are those days that teacher spends the whole session copying and discussing the lesson and fol-

low up with pencil and paper made test. 21st Century teacher envisions adapting and evolving, teachers digitally empower diverse learners to connect, communicate, collaborate, and create in an interactive technology-rich environment. It’s a challenge to every teacher to spend four hours a week to maintain a class website, twenty hours carrying out interactive white board activities, and five to ten hours online research. wherefore, learners collaborate to create multi-media reports, may construct knowledge about novels on wiki, blog to share analysis of literature, create digital music mixes for any presentation with sound tracts, use digital cameras to capture what’s going on in the real world, shoot

videos to express themselves, but all these are in differentiated styles since learners are diverse. Sign of success of every teacher is like saying such pupils are learning as if the teacher does not exist ,for teachers in the 21st century is characterized with 5C’s Commitment, Competence, Creativity, Compassion and Character. With poise and bearing every teacher takes pride by saying, “ A hundred years from now, it will not matter anymore what kind of Car I drove, what kind of house I live in, how much money I had in the bank… but the world maybe a better place because I made a difference in the life of a child.”

LEADERSHIP: A CALL FOR TRANSFORMATION By Editha F. Gagarra, Master 111 Kadingilan Central Elementary School Kadingilan, Bukidnon

Each one is born a leader and it is a challenge for all of us to instill this in our mind. We can be leaders even on our little way just like a father who sets an example to his child with the values that he wants his child to be. This is the scenario of transforming better leadership, how can anyone aspire for a better nation? How can anyone

work to prosper? How can everybody fill each other’s need to satisfy the tears for knowledge so we can build a better community? Every society in which citizens live for naught but fleeting pleasures, where men no longer trust each other each other and whose members let themselves go is doomed. Instead of lamenting let’s try to transform our own, we can’t

change the whole universe, but leadership starts in me. To do our job and does it well, to become master at it, each one works in his own fields. I touch lives, you touch mine. It’s just the same that I am happy because I love my work. I am committed to do even a simple task just to help every individual who craves for transformation. Voluntary decision, constantly renewed to rise above our natures it gives us a lasting joy of being at peace with

ourselves. I may forego and immediate pleasures to assure myself the great joy in the future of looking at my past without shame, but with pride. It is where you’d forget your personal pleasures because you consider the majority.”My dear colleague, your sincerity and honesty count the most.”says late DILG sec. Jessie Robredo. This goes to show that “ leadership is action not a position.”

Success Depends on One’s Determination By Loreta S. Pabualan Teacher I East City Central School

The extent at which a person is capable of realizing his dreams depends less on his intellectual ability and more on his persistence and wisdom. It is through several factors indirectly imposed by society that my determination to be successful is manifested by these persistence and wisdom. My length of service in teaching taught me even more that as a role model.

I should build personality wherein I can inspire youth to be successful as well as to serve the country as they become adults in their own characters. Within the four walls of the classroom is a venue for relay and exchange of knowledge, nurturing and growth of values, and interpersonal interaction. My primary purpose in this room is to ensure a healthy and proper development of these activities through an

enjoyable means which at the same time, maintaining strict but just demeanor. I faced the challenged of this feat despite the variety of obstacles that block my way. I would never be in the position as I am in now if I had let go my perseverance even at one point. In my opinion, to be perceiving and wise are the embodiments of determinations. I have strongly applied the skills in my pursuit of success and my endeavour to continuously grow with my pupils and lead them to the

path of success. I believe that success is not merely the attainment of high social or intellectual status. Success is not a oneway road travelled by one man but a network of intersections where people help and pull each other to great heights. I deem a person successful if he is able to make another successful as well. It is measured rather by the contentment and happiness one brings to his family and the character of teacher his student’s inspire themselves with.

their relatives who to vote for in any election. If these OFWs are now for Duterte, I am sure they will make sure their family members here will likewise support the mayor from Davao City. If there are now about 15 million OFWs in the world today, with one or two voters in their families come election time, that is easily going to be votes for Duterte from 15 million to 30 million. The question is, why this fascination with Duterte, which approximates the national paroxysm over “YayaDub”? Why this belief that he can transform this country from being a crime-infested and corrupt country into a haven even for ordinary Filipinos? The answer lies in the perception that he is unafraid of criminals, and that he is not indebted to any businessman or any political patron. -oooPLEASE LISTEN: “Ang Tanging Daan” (The Sole Way), a Bible study and prayer session on radio, airs Mondays to Fridays, 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., at DWAD 1098 kHz on the AM band.

We need another Magsaysay type leader who could stop criminality in the country, especially corruption that has impoverished the state. Someone who also can introduce new things that would improve the situation in the country. I guess Duterte will fit the type of man who can lead us towards progress and prosperity. Honesty and being straightforward are not enough for a president we need. We need a strong and fearless leader to battle criminality around as well as settle the 46-year-old rebellion. Using guns and bullets cannot stop the war with the rebels. It will only result in thousands of death and billions of pesos lost in the process. We need a brave man who can invite these people in the hills to come down and discuss peace. Maysaysay had made a landmark and a legend when he brought the “Huks” to Mindanao, gave them land and now they are proud and wealthy people. Our problems are so little but need intelligent ideas by people deserving of honor and respect. We need determined leaders who can drive away the bad elements in society.

Beyond the call of his civic duty as an Eagles club charter president, he also organized a Balik Islam group in Cagayan de Oro. It is through his efforts that more than 2,000 Cagayanons have reverted back to Islam for the past two years alone. Sarapuddin said that the first initiative that he will launch if Abamin party-list could clinch the number of votes allowed for a second nominee to hold office, is to establish a Muslim cemetery in the city. He said that this is important since the population of Muslims in Cagayan de Oro has burgeoned over the past decade or so. “Muslims have specific burial requirements such as the placing of the casket facing towards Mecca, etc. That's why we need our own cemetery," he said. Sarapuddin also said that together with Rodriguez, he will be working to establish a Sharia justice system in Cagayan de Oro. For now, the Sharia justice system is enforced only in Armm. Outside the autonomous area, it is practiced only in the cities of Davao and Digos. Sarapuddin’s paternity hails from Zamboanga City while his mother’s side––the Alontos––come from Lanao del Norte.

Counselors is to produce and convince the brightest students to stay and work in the country rather than aspire to get overseas jobs, Igot said. She said that the CHED has now developed packages designed for K+12 transition where the teachers are sent for training in order to also effectively guide K+12 students in choosing the right career for their future. XU to hold ‘parents forum’ on SHS The Xavier Univerity will conduct a series of Parents Forum scheduled on October 10 and 24, November 14 and 28, and December 12 from 2-5 p.m. at the AVR 1 in Cagayan de Oro City. The forums will be open to the public so many parents can be clarified on the program structure of SHS, and be guided in helping their children choose the right track and strand to take, the statement said. Incoming Grade 11 students, with the help of their parents, are expected to make a decision on the career path they will pursue in senior high school, whether it’s academic, technical-vocational-livelihood, sports, or arts and design. For Dr Joey Jegonia, director of Promotions, Testing and Admissions at XU, a student’s choice “must be in line with his/her competency and ideal career in the future.” A way to do this is to choose based on a student’s career assessment results. XU is currently accepting applications for the career exam in February 2016 and CSAT or the College Scholastic Aptitude Test this November. Both exams are requisites for admission to senior high school. The implementation of SHS also gives an opportunity for public school stu-

dents to move on to private school with a scholarship. XU is offering more than 200 scholarships to students entering senior high school, besides accepting DepEd tuition vouchers to offset the cost of studying at the university. “Nothing is impossible,” said Dr Jegonia. Scholarship examinations will be held every Saturday of November. Application process, tuition, scholarship and other related concerns will be explained thoroughly at the Parents Forum. For more information, parents may visit the Office of Promotions, Testing and Admissions at the ground floor of the Science Center building, Xavier University or call (088)8583116/ (08822)723116 loc 3217 and 3313.

Coal... from page A8

For farmer Teofilo Tredez, 49, of the Calatigas Service Irrigators Association in Narra town, peasants and fisherfolk are opposed to the coal plant as the lessons of destructive mining in Narra is still fresh. “They (companies) promised that our village will become a ‘Little Brunei’… but the mining had come and gone and it never happened,” he said. Residents of San Isidro village – the site of the coal plant — and other villages in Narra fear a repeat of the pollution caused by mining. Five years after the mining companies had shut down, Tredez said, nickel laterite from open-pit mining had polluted rice farms and water ways and decreased food production. Farms which used to yield 100 cavans of palay per hectare, now only harvest 30 to 40 cavans. Tredez added that he used to catch 10 up to 50 tiklis (basket weighing 120 kilos) of fish, but now only catches one to three baskets. The bangus fingerlings which used to abound in the brackish waters of Narra had also dwindled. “We are totally against the coal plant in Narra because we know this will not benefit us, as we have seen in mining… We want to tell our respected officials in DENR, that there are many other sources of energy which we can use in Palawan,” Tredez said.
