Quina withdraws from the vice guv race in MisOr

Mayor Alexis Quina of Balingasag, a central town, east of Misamis Oriental, has probably been following this column. Last week, we wrote about the gubernatorial tandem of Mayor Julio Uy of Villanueva as the standard bearer of the LPTeam Unity-NUP political party. Quina is supposedly the running mate as the Vice Gubernatorial candidate. Before anything, perhaps, Quina might have read the article: “EmanoBaculio, together again in 2016,” Oct. 2 2015, Mindanao Daily News, Friday. In that issue, an analysis of the political scenario of the Uy-Quina tandem as against the Emano-Pelaez ticket was clearly elucidated. It was very clear the chances of Uy and Quina in winning the gubernatorial race in Misamis Oriental in 2016 are nil. Thus, Quina might have changed his mind that an informer has sent feedback that Quina has withdrawn

his quest for the Vice Gubernatorial race. This means, that Julio Uy is in search of a worthy running mate again. No doubt, Julio would pick a candidate coming from the province east district – him being with the 2nd District – in order to attain strategic balance in terms of votes. Aside from admitting that his winning chances as vice governor is nil, Quina also realizes the effort needed to campaign in the province 25 towns, includ-

ing the component cities of El Salvador and Gingoog. Perhaps, his resources is not as much as Julio Uy. Indeed, Julio Uy has the capability to launch more than a province wide campaign. With big companies like the Coca-cola, STEAG Power, Philippine Sinter, Feeds Companies, and the FILINVEST Coal Fired Power Plant Company would might throw millions to support his candidacy, Julio and wife Rep. Juliet Uy, could easily raise much needed election fund. Quina has nothing to fill his election war chest, but wait for “manna” from the political party – a thing that would never happen. Aside from this, perhaps, Quina also believes that Julio Uy’s winning chances is also farfetched. Considering all options, it was wise for Quina to withdraw. With his withdrawal from the gubernatorial race, Quina might, instead, settle

A deeper view

Jesse E.L. Bacon II

two reasons. But you may see more. The first reason is the kind of politics we have in this country. It is very personal and very personality oriented. One decides to support a candidate not because of what that candidate represents or what that candidate can do for the country. More often than not the reason for such support is anchored on the principle, “what’s in it for me?” What one gets in his or her decision in choosing candidate A over B is almost always the basis of such decision. Candidate A may be a SoB but as long as he or she is the voter’s SoB, voters don’t find anything wrong with this. That is why in this country the elected is always a SoB who just

happened to be the SoB of the majority. This attitude toward the electoral process prevails because the local level politics is very much personality oriented that takes its hold on patronage. Who among the politicians can give what to the voters is the guiding principle that has been the sole basis in electing officials. It is for this reason why in a previous column I mentioned that local politicians in reality don’t give a hoot who are the national candidates because to them what is important is their own political survival in their respective political fiefdoms. Truth is local politicians receive all sorts of support national candidates could give them regardless of party affiliation as long as it can be kept secret from anyone. National politicians obsessed in winning likewise promote this treachery by telling local politicians who are not their party mates that their gesture has no strings attached. And in the event the national politician wins, the winners from the local level can easily slide to the party of the new occupant

Gearing up for AEC: Ecofusion opens in Davao Friday DAVAO City--A one-stop facility called “Ecofusion” will open at the Abreeza of the Ayala Malls on Tuesday, a move that is seen to promote trade, tourism, and investment opportunities of Mindanao and Palawan. The Ecofusion is a project of Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) 11 and Davao Ecocrafts Association

Inc. Speaking at the Brunei, Darussalam-IndonesiaMalaysia-Philippines East Asean Growth Area (BIMPEAGA) Trade and Tourism Investment Forum, DTI-11 director Maria Belenda Q. Ambi said the facility will house various products and information on the investment opportunities of the

two islands. The center was conceptualized as one of the interventions of the BIMPEAGA Trade and Investment Facilitation Cluster, as the economic sub-region is gearing up for the Asean Economic Community (AEC), a single-based production center which takes effect in December this year. “The BIMP-EAGA efforts are not contained in BIMP-EAGA but we are also looking at AEC as a

whole. We cannot compete with each other, considering we are producing same product. We are looking at partnerships with the private sector for them to have bigger volume,” Ambi said. Products form other BIMP-EAGA member countries are also welcome to join the Ecofusion, which represents the three major development principles of the sub- region’s commitments such as ecological

balance, eco-tourism and economic development, a briefer said. But Ambi emphasized they wanted to focus on the Philippines’ strengths before rolling out all over BIMP-EAGA. “The word ‘fusion,’ on the other hand, depicts the integration of initiatives on trade, tourism, environment and investments of the four member-countries,” the briefer said. It added that Ecofusion will serve as a venue as well for tourism and investment promotion that provides data and information to investors, tourists and other stakeholders. On the information side,

Ambi said they hope to highlight Philippine’s customs procedures in trading and requirements to make the facilitation easier for exporters and producers of goods, such as coconut and cacao products. She said increasing the production volume must be improved to be able to keep up in the market integration. “ T he re are a l re a dy enrollees from other regions. There are cubicles and stands where they can put in their products. This is not going to be that big but this is important that we have put up this kind of showcase for the local players,” she added.

oca overcomes tight budget Budget cuts won over by creative budgeting By BenCyrus G. Ellorin Contributor

CAGAYAN de Oro City--Astute fiscal management amid sharp udget cuts from a contrarian City Council has resulted in a solid perforance of the administration of Mayor Osc ar S. Moreno. City Budget Officer Percy Salazar said they have to make wise use of City Hall resources and maximized resources that are not controlled in any way by the City Council. Salazar said the administration of Mayor Oscar S. Moreno built unprecedented number classrooms in two and a half years because it used judiciously the Special Education Fund, which is sourced from Real Property Taxes. The Moreno administration has already built more than 400 classrooms and looks to be finishing over 600 classrooms at the end of his first term next year. Meanwhile, City TreaERRATUM The Notice of Hearing of Applicant/s JOSE MARTIN ,with the exact Case No. 2015-10-1957,(201010-1706) to extend the validity of CPC to operate AIRCON TAXI service on the line;Cagayan de Oro City to any point in Region X and vice versa with the use of one (1)units.

and efficient tax collection

surer Glenn Banez said that helping poor children have access to schools has been his motivation to faithfully collect local taxes. Banez projects over P200 million in real property tax collection and around 1.5 billion pesos in local taxes this year. Last year, City Hall collected around P1.4 billion from local taxes. In the previous administration, real property tax collection had been in the neighborhood of P150 million and total local taxes collection at less than a billion. “I am an avid biker, and I have seen school children walk kilometers to school. That is why, I have to make the right collection because part of the taxes we at the City Treasurer’s Office collect goes to the Special Education Fund,” Banez said. He added that the Moreno administration should not be faulted for its tax collection efforts as it is just implementing the local tax code formulated in 2003. “We are just implementing what has not been faithfully implemented by the previous administra-

tion,” said Banez of the tax law that was formulated with former city mayor Dongkoy Emano at the helm of City Hall. Salazar who was brought in by Moreno from the Dept. of Budget and Management said that certain sectors have actually suffered because of the politically-motivated budget cuts made by the City Council that is composed mostly of members of Emano’s PaDayon Pilipino. Aside from budget cuts, the Moreno administration has been saddled with ser vicing P870 million debt left by the Emano administration. In the last three years, City Hall has spent P394 million in debt servicing. Salazar said this was sourced from the city’s general fund. The slash in the proposed budget made by the mayor she said has been unprecedented. During the Emano administration, what is proposed by the mayor has been approved by the City Council, she said. But starting in 2014, the City Council cut the proposed P2.64 billion to

FOR SALE FARM LOT, Titled 3.6 hectares, 99% area can be tractor, planted already with coconuts more than 100 pcs. accessible with brgy. Road Madaguing Claveria, only 650K or swap with residential Lot in CDO.

P2.31 billion and in 2015, the P3.8 billion to P2.08 billion. The Commission on Audit has noted sharp improvements in the city’s fiscal management when it rendered a “Qualified opinion” to City Hall’s Annual Audit Report in 2014, from the lowest assessment of “Disclaimer opinion” in 2012 and 2013. Affected services Among the ser vices that suffered are traffic management and solid waste management. The Roads and Traffic Administration was unable to implement its planned hiring of around 200 traffic enforcers and acquisition of heavy duty tow trucks. However, hard work and efficiency of its existing workforce have been credited for the more than ten-hold traffic citations made by the RTA in the present compared to 2013. The RTA apprehension resulted in more than P2 million in traffic fines in

January to June this year, compared to around P200 thousand in 2013. RTA chief lawyer Egay Uy, however, admits that traffic is still a problem. But he said motorist behavior has contributed to the problem. “Enforcement can only do so much, motorists behavior have to be also considered.... But with more personnel and better equipment, we can still do

better,” Uy admitted. On the other hand the second phase of the closure and rehabilitation of the 17-hectare garbage landfill in Upper Dagong, barangay Carmen has been hampered because the P76 million proposed budget for the project, which would have made the city compliant to the Solid Waste Management law has been slashed to zero.

PhilRice develops App for rice farming Text and photo by PhilRice RESEARCHERS at the Philippine Rice Research Institute are developing a virtual farming assistant designed as mobile application for smartphones. The AgriDoc App features knowledge links, farm journals, and farm management tools. It can also control advanced instruments in the farm. “The application has knowledge links where users can search for any information regarding rice farming; a farm journal where users can record their activities and monitor farm inputs; a scheduler to improve farm tasking and sort activities and a diagnostic tool to aid users in managing their farm. All of these can be considered the core function of the app,” said Nehemiah L. Caballong, Information Systems Researcher at PhilRice. Developers are also working on the app’s ability to monitor and control advanced farming instru-

ments, and collect farm data for users. Prototypes were installed at the FutureRice farm at PhilRice in partnership with Information Systems Division and Climate Change Center. It includes a water level sensing device which collects real time data and monitors water deficiency in the rice field, a field weather monitoring station to gather weather forecast to warn users with heavy downpours of rain, and an agronomic data sensing device that detects paddy temperature and water and soil ph. The developers also included drone technology which can be maximized for data collection, tracking growth patterns, and pests and nutrient management through color detection. A CCTV camera is also installed for monitoring and security purposes. “Our goal here is make the app access these instruments and collect data wherever the user is as long as he

is connected to the internet,” Caballong explained. Marian Rikka O. Añora, field manager of FutureRice farm, said that the app is also helpful for rice extension workers because the rice knowledge bank can also be accessed. “We hope that as soon as the app will be launched, it will be adopted by progressive rice farmers to help them manage their farm,” Caballong said. “It can be a model for IT experts or companies to replicate. We want people to

know that there are business opportunities when IT and agriculture merge as one,” Caballong added. The AgriDoc App is funded under the project Improving Technolog y Promotion and Delivery through Capability Enhancement of Next-Gen Rice Extension Professionals and Other Intermediaries (IPaD) and FutureRice Program. The app is scheduled to be launched next year. The project won 2nd best poster during the 28th National

Rice R&D Conference held at PhilRice, September 10, under the category Technologies, systems, tools, and information for efficient rice-based farming, and reducing climate change effects. The project is headed by Roger F. Barroga as research consultant and Nehemiah L. Caballong as research implementer.

MGB-12 cracks down on illegal mining in SMI areas GENERAL Santos City-The Mines and Geosciences Bureau in Region 12 has stepped up its crackdown against the continuing illegal small-scale mining activities in parts of Tampakan town in South Cotabato. Contancio Paye Jr., MGB Region 12 director, said they have linked up with the provincial government of South Cotabato in a bid to stop the “clandestine guerrilla-type” mining operations in three upland barangays in the area. He said they initially issued a joint cease-anddesist order against all small-scale mining operations in Barangays Danlag, Pula Bato and Tablu, which are all covered by the proposed large-scale copper and gold mining project of Sagittarius Mines Inc.

(SMI). “We deputized the chairs of the three barangays, the mayor of Tampakan and the provincial police director of South Cotabato to implement the order,” he said in a statement. Citing their investigation, Paye said the illegal small-scale activities in Tampakan surged after

SMI suspended its mining explorations last year. The company’s move came after it scaled down its operations in August 2013 due to the impasse over the open-pit mining ban imposed by the provincial government and delays in national government permitting processes. SMI, which became a

wholly-owned Filipino company last month with the buyout of the remaining foreign share by the Alcantara Group’s Alsons Prime Investment Corporation, holds a Financial and Technical Assistance Agreement or FTAA with the national government over the mining area. Discovered in 1992, the US$5.9-billion Tampakan project is a 2.9 billion metric ton deposit, containing 15 million tons of copper and 18 million ounces of gold at a 0.2 percent cutoff grade. Paye said the unregulated mining operations have already affected the water quality of the Taplan River, which traverses the three barangays. “The river’s water has already turned murky and farmers in the downstream

have been complaining about this,” he said. The provincial government and MGB-12 earlier filed criminal charges against several individuals who were allegedly behind the illegal mining activities, especially the highly-destructive “banlas” or hydraulic sluice mining. “Banlas” mining involves the pouring of large amounts of water using high-pressure water jets on a mountain’s surface to extract the rocks containing the gold ore, and then pan them with mercury. The use of the illegal mining method, which was first uncovered in a mining village in T’boli town several years ago, has been thriving these past years in small-scale mining areas in Tampakan.

DA links local producers to market

Cagayan de Oro City--The Department of Agriculture-Regional Field Office 10 (DA-RFO 10), through the efforts of the Agribusiness and Marketing Assistance Division (AMAD), opened market opportunities for small-scale processors and producers in the region in a market matching, held on September 30, 2015, in the city. Several local producers from three provinces in the region, namely: Misamis Oriental, Bukidnon and Lanao del Norte, got the chance to showcase their products ranging from organically grown vegetables, processed goods and other high value crops, to consumers from hotels, restaurants and other businesses in the city. According to AMAD Corazon E. Balabat, Market Specialist III, the goal of the market matching is to promote local products by directly linking producers to potential buyers. “ Through the market matching, producers can meet buyers to increase the volume of their sales and not only limit their market to their place,” Balabat stated. The Damilag Growers Associaton, a group of coffee growers in Manolo Fortich,

was one of the local producers who benefited the said event. Being a neophyte in the market, the market matching served as the group’s first exposure in showcasing their very own Damilag Coffee, a commodity of roasted Exelsa coffee. Ignacia Mata, the secretary of the said group, remarked that the market matching widened their knowledge on their livelihood as they saw how their fellow producers marketed their own products. Genevieve Cababarros, on the other hand, market manager of Doalnara Multi-

purpose Cooperative, that produces organic crops, stated that the market matching also enabled them to build connections with fellow local processors for exchanging of goods and technologies. “Nahimo sab ming buyers sa among isig ka producers (We also became buyers of our fellow producers),” Cababarros said. AMAD is hopeful that these local producers will soon expand their market as they continue to help them promote Northern Mindanao’s own bounty. #(MCLPaylaga, DA-10 RAFIS)

people making a noise, He said unto them, give place: for the maid is not dead, but slept. And they laughed him to scorn. But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose. Being a bearer of God to someone else can bring blessings to many people around you. Your efforts to consult God for a certain problem can bring blessings to the lives

of others. Take note; Jesus can heal the dead child but instead he accompanied the woman because he knew that someone along the way needed him. It was the way of God to reach out the sickly woman. God initiates first for your favors in life. God knows your necessities in life. God knows your status in life. God knows your struggles right now. God knows your requests. He is responsible to answer your

prayers in his perfect timing. Everything is set to fulfill it. If some areas of your life that you think are dead already; do not worry because God can redeem and restore everything. God can give you another life. He can resurrect every dead spot in your life.

because they have not come out in the open about their support for the winner. It is always the boisterous partisan supporters who get the ear of the winner because they were the ones who noisily backed up the winner just like those you and I can read in social media. Just take as example the Freedom of Information law that Aquino promised the electorate during the 2010 campaign. The silent majority supported him because of this promise. But did he make true his promise? No because the noisy gong among his supporters are not for it since it’ll reinforce the tenets of daang matuwid which they are not ready to embrace. Embracing the straight path means disallowing them from recouping what they have spent to ensure Aquino’s victory. Why then should they endorse the passage of the FOI bill that has been rusting in Congress? This vicious cycle in Philippine politics will again have its chance of being reinforced and solidified unless the people themselves demand form the self-proclaimed candidates for president that they enter into a real covenant with the silent majority that they’ll pursue no other platform of government other than the platform of government this sector of Philippine society has been espousing and promoting through their overwhelming support to the winner albeit silently. Election winners should understand that their electoral victory is not because of the support from the clanging cymbals among their supporters but by the votes of the silent majority.

trick you to steal your information (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards). Clearly, the e-mail is a form of Phishing. According to the online encyclopedia, Wikipedia, Phishing is the attempt to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details (and sometimes, indirectly, money), often for malicious reasons, by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. The word is a neologism created as a homophone of fishing due to the similarity of using fake bait in an attempt to catch a victim. The website has these 8 Ways To Avoid Phishing Scams To help you protect yourself from phishing, we offer the following tips: 1. Guard against spam. Be especially cautious of emails that: * Come from unrecognized senders. * Ask you to confirm personal or financial information over the Internet and/or make urgent requests for this information. * Aren’t personalized. * Try to upset you into acting quickly by threatening you with frightening information. 2. Communicate personal information only via phone or secure web sites. In fact: When conducting online transactions, look for a sign that the site is secure such as a lock icon on the browser’s status bar or a “https:” URL whereby the “s” stands for “secure” rather than a “http:”. Also, beware of phone phishing schemes. Do not divulge personal information over the phone unless you initiate the call. Be cautious of emails that ask you to call a phone number to update your account information as well. 3. Do not click on links, download files or open attachments in emails from unknown senders. It is best to open attachments only when you are expecting them and know what they contain, even if you know the sender. 4. Never email personal or financial information, even if you are close with the recipient. You never know who may gain access to your email account, or to the person’s account to whom you are emailing. 5. Beware of links in emails that ask for personal information, even if the email appears to come from an enterprise you do business with. Phishing web sites often copy the entire look

His vice mayor would run for the top mayoral post in 2016. Thus, Quina would slide down as the candidate for the vice mayoral post. Back to Julio. Without a worthy running mate, Julio is alone now. Julio might also change his mind, too. With a very limited number of days to file the Certificate of Candidacy, and without a running mate, Julio might probably forego his plan to run for Governor. Instead, he would concentrate on maintaining a strong political base in Villanueva by running for reelection and help his wife Juliet to fortify her political clout in the province’s second district. Wait! It would, however, be very painful for Julio to see Gov. Bambi Emano to run for reelection without an opponent. With a thing to prove his political capability in mind, Julio might actually slug it out against Bambi for the gubernatorial post. He will let his “unica hija” run for Mayor in Villanueva. Julio, therefore, is planning to wage political cum “family feud” encounter in the province. For people on the sideline, the Bambi-Julio confrontation is a very exciting event.

Malacanang because in the first place they mutually engaged in political treachery during election time. The second reason I am seeing for the kind of politics we now have is because Philippine politics has never been anchored on platforms of government. When candidates seek public office they admittedly spew certain platforms only to be set aside when they are in office. Platforms of government are simply espoused for purposes of winning adherents from the nonpartisan voters or the so-called silent majority. But the silent majority’s opinion or position on any matter is never given any credence by the winning candidate
