CIDG arrests another Espinosa


minion for drugs and guns

By Lalaine M. Jimenea

VILLABA, LEYTE - The 8th Regional Criminal Investigation

donates one 5-classroom schoolbuilding to Ormoc
ORMOC CITY - The STAR Group, led by
its president and CEO Miguel G. Belmonte
and wife Milette, turned over three school
buildings to three schools in the region over
the past two days.
Belmonte, in an exclusive interview, said
they were in Marabut, Samar and Palo, Leyte on
Tuesday (May 27) where they turned over one
6-classroom school building to selected schools
there. He said the classrooms were built from
donations of readers and private individuals to
the STARs Operation Damayan.
Here in Ormoc, the STAR Group turned
over to the Department of Education one
5-classroom school building located at the
Valencia Elementary School.
The turnover was witnessed by Leyte 4th
district Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez, a STAR
columnist and Ormoc Mayor Edward Codilla.
Also present were other city officials led by
Vice Mayor Leo Carmelo Locsin Jr.
Belmonte said that they chose Ormoc as one
of the beneficiary LGUs because of Rep. Gomez, who is very close to their family. Belmonte
is the son of House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte.

Councilor Vincent Rama, on the other hand,


said that Rep. Gomez pointed out in her speech
that Belmonte was her first donor to her Rebuild
Ormoc and the 4th district of Leyte campaign.
Belmonte donated P 1-million to her campaign
to raise shelter kits for the homeless.
It was also learned from Mrs. Melvyn
Baldomar that she requested that the school
building be divided into five classrooms only,
to accommodate their class sizes of 40 pupils or
more. One classroom, on the other hand, would
be the school library and clinic.
The Valencia ES is one of Ormocs biggest
elementary schools, with almost close to 1,000
expected to enroll before classes start on June 2.
Mrs. Baldomar said she was very thankful to
the STARs Operation Damayan and its donors
for choosing their school. We are lucky. There
are still other schools that need help, she said.
However, even with the 5-classroom building and another 3-classroom building that the
Rotary Club of Ormoc is currently construction,
the principal said they still lack more classsee

UNICEF repairs nearly 1,500


classrooms in E. Visayas
TACLOBAN CITY (PNA) -- The United Nations Childrens
Fund (UNICEF) is repairing nearly 1,500 classrooms in
Eastern Visayas to make it functional for the opening a new
academic year in less than two weeks.
In addition to repair works, the UN agency is also funding
the construction of 207 temporary learning spaces (TLS) in the
region, which is targeted for completion within June, said Ma.
Lourdes de Veyra-Mateo, UNICEF Philippines chief of education.
Of the 1,485 classrooms being fixed, 958 are in various Leyte
towns, 200 in Tacloban City, 164 in Ormoc City, 119 in Eastern
Samar, and 44 in Samar.
Majority of identified sites has ongoing classroom repairs.
We cannot complete all of these by June 2 because of the vast
need, but we are completing these projects as quickly as possible, Mateo added.
The UNICEF is now pulling out tents set up in campuses in
December and early this year since it is not anymore conducive
to learning, however, they have prepositioned 200 tents if in
case needed.
Only few tents will be left as functional temporary classrooms. We will transfer school children to rehabilitated classrooms and temporary learning spaces, Mateo told reporters.
Temporary learning spaces are typically made of woods
and galvanized iron sheets as roofing materials. Each unit
cost about USD 3,500 to USD 4,000 or roughly PHP153,000
to PHP175,000. The size follows the education departments
standard of 63 square meters.
Repair of partially damaged classrooms, on the other hand,
entails a cost of USD 2,000 or roughly PHP87,500.
Since the typhoon struck, the agency has repaired and reconstructed 750 damaged classrooms. The humanitarian relief
organization also provided learning desks and chairs.
The agency has served 1,351 temporary learning spaces
through distribution of learning supplies and materials to 470,000
preschool and school-aged children.
Some 135,000 children benefited from 1,351 temporary learning spaces equipped with school-in-a-box kits, and recreational
and early childhood development materials.
UNICEF is targeting 500,000 children to go back to school
on June 2 in communities flattened by super typhoon Yolanda.

CHED scholarship to benefit more


than 14,000 in E. Visayas
TACLOBAN CITY, May 21 (PNA) -- More than 14,000
college students stand to benefit from the Php 172 million
fund for scholarship program and financial assistance of
the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) intended for
Eastern Visayas this school year.
CHED regional director Dr. Maura Consolacion D. Cristobal
said that a deliberation to determine the ranking of almost 20,000
applicant-students was done Monday.
They also have to ensure that every congressional district
has fund allocation.
More than 13,000 of the slots will fall under the Tulong
Dunong program where recipients will receive Php 6,000 grant
annually or depending on the tuition of the school.
CHED also offers full and half merit scholarship where recipients each semester will receive Php 15,000 and Php 7, 500
assistance, respectively.
Unlike the Tulong Dunong that only requires a passing
grade, recipients of the merit scholarship have to maintain a
certain grade for them to continue with the program.
She added that the increase in funds and scholarship was
due to the downloading of what used to be the priority development assistance fund (PDAF) of legislators directly to CHED
for that purpose.

Philippines can be Asias


valuable brand in services
THE PHILIPPINES has vast
potentials to be the heart of
services trade in Asia Pacific.
A study authored by Dr.
Ramonette Serafica, research
consultant of state think tank
Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS), underscores the vast opportunities
left untapped in the services
sector.
The services sector has
significantly contributed to
the Philippine economy in increasing employment, investment, and revenue generation.
It represents 44.15 percent
in gross exports in terms of
service value added, Serafica
said. However, there are still
vast opportunities left untapped to fully exploit its role
in the economy.
The countrys strong information technology-business
process outsourcing industry
places the country in a comparative advantage as a net
exporter of services, Serafica
said.
The main source of the
countrys comparative advantage is its pool of skilled,
semiskilled, and low-skilled
workers, Serafica said. Moreover, technological changes in
information and communication technology and the business models of multinational
companies that are leaned toward outsourcing and offshoring of services have leveraged
the countrys human capital.
Serafica added that the
Philippines has a strong potential to become a major hub
in ship repair because of its
strong labor force. Other plus
factors are its geographical
location which is ideal as a
logistics hub for cargo and
its deep seashores that make
the country suitable as a ship

repair hub.
The growing numbers of
overseas Filipinos across the
globe, more than 10 million to
date, are a natural market for
Philippine services, Serafica
added.
Despite the countrys decades of experience as a supplier of labor, there should
be a comprehensive services
export initiative to help facilitate the overseas expansion of
other services, Serafica said.
There should be an umbrella
program dedicated to services
exports that would help create
the Philippines as a valuable
brand in services trade.
Serafica noted that based
on the World Banks services
trade restrictiveness index
(STRI), the Philippines has
one of the most restrictive
policy environments for services. STRI is a gauge of a
countrys degree of discriminatory restrictions in financial
services, telecommunications,
retail, transport, and professional services. Among the
sectors included in the index,
it is in professional services
where the extent of restrictiveness [of the Philippines]
is highest, Serafica said. In
addition to restrictive policies, anticompetitive business
practices also exist, she noted.
Serafica suggested that
a government policy on innovation and human resource
development (HRD) be implemented to further create an
environment conducive to
improving competitiveness.
She cited a World Bank report
where many countries both
developed and developing
are using innovation as the
foundation of competitive
industries from agriculture
to services. This innovation

The business of
our butts

GOOD NEWS: The Philippine Stars Operation Damayan, led by Miguel Belmonte and
his wife Milette, turned over one 5-classroom
building to the Valencia Elementary School.
The bad news? On the wee hours of the
morning, a thief crept into the room where
the Star staff were sleeping after an exhausting evening preparing food for the pupils and
took away their bags, including P 200,000
in the care of Emie, Operation Damayans
point person. Kauwaw sad oy! These people
came to help us and somebody robs them?
Damn shame!
rrr

I WAS reading the news today, about two


women gang-raped in a village in India. After
raping them, they were hanged and killed. They
were relieving themselves in the outskirts of
their village because they cannot do so in the
comforts of their own homes because they dont
have latrines or comfort rooms. Depending on
where you are, they come in many names: the
loo, toilets, restroom and in Vietnam, happy
house.
I condemn the violation and killings of
these women but I will not be talking about
rape in this issue. I would like to touch on the
topic about how toilet facilities seem to take a
backseat in some cultures. The Philippines is not
that advanced either, including Ormoc.
A few weeks ago, I was able to attend a
meeting about the Lake Danao Natural Park development plan, and the subject of persistently
high fecal E. Coli levels was brought up. Engr.
Daday Flores added that the readings from their
Water Quality Monitoring of Anilao River were
equally high.
The conclusion is that there were still houses
that have no toilets in Lake Danao, and this was
validated by the barangay chairman who was
also present. As for Anilao, we can also draw
the same conclusion. If there is something that
we should be thankful, no woman has yet been
reported raped and killed here because they had
to defecate in the bushes.
The problem has been around for years, so it
is easy to conclude that the business of our butts
is the least on the minds of our chief executives.
They dont seem to realize that a simple CR can
solve a lot of woes from health to rape.
I have often wondered why we seem to have
a very low regard for a very important part of the
house/establishment. Is it something cultural?
I was just in the town of Naval. While
looking for a place to eat, we saw a carinderia.
Beside it was an air-conditioned fastfood joint.
Since it was hot, we naturally gravitated to
the air-conditioned fastfood. It was pretty and
homey. Alas, its comfort room could have been
better. It was clean and had water, yes, but I
expected a better seat considering the effort
given to beautify the place.
Lets not go far away. Lets take Gaisano
Riverside Mall. If my memory serves me right,
it has three cubicles. Only one worked at the
time I was there and the facilities were not impressive. Compare the mall to a similar sized
one in Singapore. The latter would have 10 cusee

A shepherd comes
NOW ITS definite. On his flight back to
Rome, after a grueling Holy Land trip, Pope
Francis confirmed he plans to visit the Philippines, come January 2015.
With regard to Asia, two trips are planned,
Francis said, according the Vatican Information
Service. One will be to South Korea where hell
meet young Asians. The other will be a twoday trip to Sri Lanka, then on to the Philippines,
to the area affected by the typhoon.
Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal
Tagle said the Pope who stresses the need to
reach out to the worlds peripheries wants
to visit areas hit by disasters such as Super
Typhoon Yolanda and the magnitude-7.2 earthquake in the Visayas.
Francis seeks to come close to the people
who suffered from the recent typhoon and the
earthquake, Tagle added in an interview at a
stopover at Catholic University of America
in Washington, DC. Hed want that to be a
defining character of his trip.
Francis visit ought to be a barn-burner of a
trip, John Allen of Boston Globe wrote. When
(now Saint) John Paul visited Manila for World
Youth Day in 1995, he drew a crowd estimated
at around 4 million plus. That made it among
the largest Christian gatherings of all time. And
theres no reason to assume the turnout would
be any less massive now.
The Philippines remains one of the most
profoundly Catholic nations. Street signs in
downtown Manila, for instance, read Caution:
Masses and Prayers Always in Progress. And
even commercial shopping malls have chapels
with several daily services.
Some basic figures on the country that
Francis will find waiting. As of 2014, population here was estimated to crest at 100,617,630.
Thats quintuple that of the1940 census. The
next census is due 2015. Bracketed between
Mexico and Ethiopia, that makes the Philippines
the 12th most populated country in the world.
Its people send two billion text messages a day
-- a world record.
Islam and Christianity were introduced
upon an indigenous religious base here, an
Asia Society paper notes. Beginning in 1350,
Islam spread from Indonesia into the Philippines. Magellan in 1521 brought Catholicism
first into Cebu. People later were resettled from
dispersed hamlets and brought debajo de las
compaas (under the bells), into Spanish organized pueblos. This set a pattern that is still
evident in todays towns.

The results of 400 years of Catholicism


were mixed -- ranging from a deep theological
understanding by the educated elite to a more
superficial understanding by the rural and urban
masses. The latter is commonly referred to as
Filipino folk Christianity, combining a surface
veneer of Christian monotheism and dogma
with indigenous animism.
Here is the breakdown of religions: Roman
Catholic - 80.9 percent; Muslim 5 percent;
Evangelical - 2.8 percent; Iglesia ni Kristo - 2.3
percent; Aglipayan 2 percent; other Christian
- 4.5%,
Francis predecessor, Pope Paul VI, visited
the Philippines in November 1970. At the Manila International Airport, a Peruvian pyschopath Benjamin Mendoza, garbed in a priests
cassock, tried to stab him. He was foiled by the
prelates personal secretary Pasquale Macchi.
The then martial law censored press tried to
peddle the story that it was President Ferdinand
Marcos who grabbed the knife. No one bought
the claim. Mendoza was sentenced to 38 months
in prison for attempted murder and deported to
Bolivia in 1974.
The Vatican will beatify Pope Paul VI on
October 19, after recognizing a miracle that
he cured an unborn baby, Italian news agency
ANSA reported. This leaves him one step from
sainthood. The apparent miracle was identified
by the Vaticans Congregation for the Causes
of Saints.
Paul VI was praised for his efforts to seek
closer ties with other Christian denominations
but his 1968 encyclical Humanae Vitae was
controversial for spelling out a ban on all forms
of artificial contraception. The application for
beatification was begun in 1993.
Pope Francis will find his flock welcoming
-- and also troubled. On Sundays, churches are
packed to the seams. But more do not attend
mass. Only six percent of young Filipinos today
received significant religious instruction. A
Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines
study showed, Filipino youth are not turning
away from their faith, as Filipino theologian
Catalino Arevalo wrote earlier. They are simply not being reached.
An estimated 560 thousand illicit abortions

WE HAVE to learn to give everything,


especially to God and, because of him, to
everybody else. Lets be convinced that this
is what is expected and proper of us. Christ
himself said it very clearly.
Love the Lord your God with your whole
heart, and with your whole soul, and with all
your strength, and with all your mind, and your
neighbour as yourself. (Lk 10,27)
These divine words are actually put as an
order, a command, that indicates what really is
the very mind and will of God for us. They are
not meant only as a desire, an ideal to keep in
mind only but not so much in practice.
Obviously, Christ always respects our freedom and does not impose things on us even if
he commands us something. This we also have
to be clear. His commands never take away
nor undermine our freedom. Rather they foster
our freedom.
We have to learn to give our all without
counting the cost. We should not be afraid to
do so, because Christ himself assures us that he
who gives more shall also receive even more
than what he has given.
Listen to these words of his: Everyone who
has left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father,
or mother, or wife, or children or lands for my
names sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and
shall possess life everlasting. (Mt 19,28)
We have to learn to give ourselves as a gift
to God and to others the way God himself has
given himself as a gift to usfirst, our life,
then our talents, etc. He gives himself to us
completely gratuitously, even if we choose not
to correspond to his generosity.
Let us train to give ourselves to God and
to others more and more each day. Lets not be
afraid of losing everything, because the contrary
will actually take place. Instead of losing, we
gain by giving ourselves more.
In fact, what we consider as a gain by keeping things instead of giving will actually be a
loss to us, or will become a toxic and harmful
element in our life. This has been proven endless
times in lives of people.
When we give out of love for God and others, out of our faith and trust in Gods words,
we may lose something in the physical sense,
but we gain something spiritual that eventually
will express itself in some material form, given
our body-and-soul constitution.
A number of people have told me that when
they are more generous with their money and
other resources to help other people and especially to help in promoting the worship of God,
they end up getting pleasantly surprised because
they tend to receive much more than what they
have given away.
Even in terms of energy, what we spend
certainly will diminish our stock of it. But we
will notice also a surge of a certain kind of
energy, spiritual if not supernatural, that simply
comes out.
We can be sure that its the grace of God that
goes beyond, and even seems to defy, if need
be, the laws of nature.
God cannot be outdone in generosity. Christ
reassured us of this. He who believes in me,

Is P-Noy president of
the Philippines or of
his allies

WE ALL know how Pres. P-Noy was elevated


into the presidency. We all know that it was
largely because of the popularity of his parents, Ninoy and Cory, that he now rests in
their laurels.
We also know that he did not figure well
during his three terms as Congressman and
up to half his term as Senator when he was
miraculously elevated to that of being now the
President of the Philippines. He seems to be
doing well in curbing the tide of corruption that
is plaguing us since the martial law years. His
father, Ninoy, was Senator under the Liberal
Party despite the gargantuan effort that Marcos
did to trounce the whole LP slate. Even after he
(Ninoy) was proclaimed as Senator in a rigged
election, they were planning to unseat him because he was said to be too young. Good thing
somebody filed a bill in Congress lowering the
age requirement for Senators. His tenure made
it more dramatic - because he was the only
candidate that won from the whole LP slate.
Marcos and the whole government bureaucratic
foolishness was poured into that election, yet
Ninoy made it. If there was no cheating, he
would have made it overwhelmingly.
It is understandable that Pres. P-Noy is
also LP. But if we follow the example of Pres.
Manuel Quezon, he then said that his loyalty
to his party ends when his loyalty to his country
begins. To the thinking of this corner, these
words made Quezon stand out as the greatest
statesman of all time. Pres. P-Noy is now the
President of the Filipinos. But why is there a
perceived cover-up with the ongoing investigation into the misuse of the PDAF more popularly
known as pork barrel funds? He must show
to the people that he is earnest in his avowed
matuwid na daan policy. Let heads roll as
they come.
A President must always have his heart for
the people. That the allies of Pres. P-Noy may
have been involved in this scam must be taken
seriously. If even two of his Cabinet men are
involved, they must be told that they will not
be handled with kid gloves. Any position in the
Cabinet must always be immaculately clean;
spotless! They are the alter ego of the President. Pres. P-Noys heart must always be for

The Gospel on Sunday


JUNE 8, 2014
Pentecost Sunday
John 20: 19 - 23
On the evening of that day, the first day
of the week, the doors being shut where the
disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus
came and stood among them and said to
them, Peace be with you.
When he had said this, he showed them
his hands and his side. Then the disciples
were glad when they saw the Lord. Jesus
said to them again, Peace be with you.
As the Father has sent me, even so I send
you.
And when he had said this, he breathed
on them, and said to them, Receive the
Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any,
they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of
any, they are retained.

the people. It is the people that voted him into


office. The Cabinet came after he got elected.
Pres. P-Noy cannot run for reelection
because it is against the Constitution. With
this thought in mind, he does not have to play
politics. He should be serious in pursuing his
goals of good governance. More so when the
Philippines is groomed to grow faster than the
entire Southeast Asian region over the next two
decades due to growth in the manufacturing,
business process outsourcing, construction,
transportation, information and communications. According to financial advisory services
firm Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Ltd. (Deloitte
Global). This is its projection for the years
2014 - 2033. With this development, Pres. PNoy must have a lucky charm that will boost
our economy in the whole of Southeast Asia. If
the projection comes according to this finding,
credit will go to Pres. P-Noy.
He can therefore learn from the wisdom
of Pres. Quezon. We are all players on a giant
board. No matter if the cancer comes from
his own party, let us cut it off to prevent it from
derailing our effort of good governance. No
doubt his parents will be more than surprised
and willbe proud of him beyond measure. And
to think he was almost shot during one of the
coups that happened during the wake of his
mother, Pres. Cory. He was lucky that he had
a body guard that took the bullet meant for him.
Was it karma?

FR. ROY ... from P. 4


the works that I do, he also shall do. And greater
than these shall he do. (Jn 14,12)
These words, to me, are always a jaw-dropper. They make me wonder, as everyone most
probably also would, what these things are that
are greater than what Christ did. But we have
to believe them, because it is Christ who said
them, and he cannot tell a lie nor exaggerate
things beyond the objective truth.
We really should try to live by faith. At the
beginning, like a baby learning how to walk,
we surely would be unsure of ourselves and
awkward in our ways. But if we persist, then
we would see that what we considered difficult
or impossible is actually feasible and doable.
We need to break loose from the grips of
our merely human estimation of things. We
have to allow the words of God, our Creator
and ever loving Father, to rule us. Lets imitate
his example, because we are supposed to be his
image and likeness, and with his grace, have
become in Christ children of his.
We have to learn how to give ourselves as a
gift, completely gratuitously given to God and to
others. Lets be convinced thats how we grow
humanly, and reach the fullness of Christian life.
Lets believe when Christ says: Be not afraid!

Dont get tired of bringing the mercy of

of Santo Tomas. Wait until Francis repeats that
here at home.

IN MOST ACADEMIC communities abroad


the mantra is: Publish or perish. To survive
professionally, scientists must publish as
many papers as possible, especially in highprofile journals. And to do it sometimes they
cut corners or even commit mistakes.
Many research universities worldwide take
on lots of graduate students to produce more
research papers. In such an environment, a
paper published in a prestigious journal can
mean the difference between a career in science
or getting fired.
With all this pressure on scientists, they may
lack the extra time to check their own research
to figure out why some of their data do not
fit their hypothesis, for example. Instead, they
have to be concerned about publishing papers
before someone else publishes the same results.
The priority rule, a popular dogma among
scientists, gives all the credit for a scientific
discovery to whoever publishes results first. It
leads to rival research teams obsessing over
secrecy and rushing out their papers to beat
their competitors.
To ease such stiff competition, the rules
must be changed in scientific competitions and
to encourage universities to put a premium on
collaboration when they decide on promotions.
As long as getting or keeping a job, let alone
promotion, depend on the number of publications we will have this problem. Science should
be decoupled from all monetary incentives!
But a number of countries including
China, South Korea and Turkey and even in the
Philippines now offer cash rewards to scientists who get papers into prestigious journals.
In general, what is published in the scientific

literature is by and large correct. There are far


more papers where the general conclusions are
true or largely true, or some aspects of the study
are correct, while some aspects may be wrong.
The latter may not in itself be bad provided the
study was rigorously conducted, but a reagent
may have failed, as opposed to simple sloppiness or negligence.
Mistakes do happen. The key is how the
authors deal with it. As long as there is a speedy,
clear explanation of what happened and how
or if the mistake changes the conclusions, then
everything is fine, especially if the corrections
are initiated by the authors themselves.
The real problem is where this does not
happen and where half-truths remain alive in
the literature. You never hear about the lost
time students spend trying to reproduce what
cannot be reproduced.
The same scenario is reflected in the political
arena today. If the legislatures who are accused
in the Napoles scam will just come out on how
they spent their PDAF, give a full accounting
of the transactions, then it will be okay if everything is aboveboard. But what is really galling is
the temerity of some of those accused of stealing
from the coffers of the government to declare
that they are just victims of political persecution even if their hands are already caught in
the proverbial cookie jar.
Probably they are also thinking of imitating
an admission on national TV that the sin of
vote stealing was only a lapse in judgment. That
reason is simply incredulous and so G..R..R..!

Typhoon Haiyan revisited


YOLANDA VICTIMS expectations were high when they
learned that the government
and those who have pledged
to help the survivors will prioritize livelihood recovery.
The very first thing that the
international organizations did
right after the typhoon struck
the Visayas was to distribute 6 months after
relief goods and tents. Three living in tents.
months after, I could see
International NGOs working
on providing permanent shelters; livelihood
assistance, like giving of boats and fishing
equipment, seeds and agricultural tools; conducting psychosocial interventions; and even
conducting capacity building trainings to local
partners on the ground whether government
institutions or peoples organization.
A lot of work has been done; works
which are mostly accomplished by the nongovernment organizations. It is undeniable
that the government has over promised, but
under delivered. In Tacloban City alone, most
of the survivors are still in their tents and in
their temporary shelters. Many of those living
in the bunkhouses are suffering from hunger
and illnesses. Traumatic survivors experiencing bad weather again, and still living in these
unstable shelters cannot be taken lightly.
When one of the big malls in Tacloban announced its grand reopening in June, many
were a bit excited of the said development.
Many equate it as a sign of recovery. But
stop, and think: even if all those big malls and
grocery stores reopen, economic recovery will
still be very slow. Why? The reality is, copra
is the regions major crop; the major industry
that is first on the list of total devastation. The
fishing industry is still struggling to achieve its
full recovery, due to the No Build Zone policy,
which prevents fisher folks to fully operate
in their livelihoods. Even if there is on-going
cash for work scheme by the government
and organizations, still the amount would not
cover the total amount of their first financial

Yolanda hit the region, many people are still


priorities. School obligations, which are fast
approaching, add up to these financial challenges.
Yes, the national government was able to
conduct massive relief operations through the
Department of Social Welfare and Development DSWD, but it was also reported that relief goods were just stock piled in gymnasiums
of municipal halls, help that never reached in
the hands of the survivors. The office of Ping
Lacson, which is just coordinative in nature
and which cannot even put all the plans of
local government units together, make it a
paper tiger. The continued fight between the
Marcoses and Aquino seems to get deeper
as people are being divided in terms of where
to get help.
There are three elements that I think are
important, if we are really serious in helping
the Haiyan survivors. These are:
1. The government must take the lead
in all the recovery efforts.
2. The international communities or
organizations must work together.
3. In all of the relief and rehabilitation
efforts, people must be consulted at all times.
We are all aware that total recovery is not
an easy road to take. It takes a lot of pure
heart to truly serve. No personal interest. No
political agenda. Above all, no exploitation
of the misery of the survivors; these I firmly
believe. - RICO CAJIFE, Junior Program Officer, ICCO Regional Office South East Asia

Mayor Cerillo said
that Yolanda might have
brought a lot of woe and
pain to the places it hit, but
looking at it from the other
side, it has also brought
good things to the town and
its residents.
He said that if observers would just look around
well, they would see that
those living in shanties
before now have sturdier
houses and GI sheet roofs,
thanks to the various donors who came to help.
Food is abundant as relief
continues to come. He said
some homeowners have

happily told him they have


stocks of rice to last them
months to come.
New companies have
also committed to construct
at the Leyte Industrial Development Estate. One is
a British company which
would be putting up a coal
plant. Another is a shipwrecking company which
would be using Philphos
facilities.
These companies, he
said, would generate more
employment and contribute
to the progress of the industrial town.

bicles at the very least, with everything working and a dedicated
worker assigned to clean it up periodically the rest of the day.
Oh, lets just compare it to Robinsons Place in Tacloban City,
which by the way is opening before Tacloban fiesta. There are 10
cubicles at the ground floor and another 10 on the second floor,
not to mention the individual CRs in restaurants.
Isnt there a ratio that should be followed by the mall
developer? Arent these things within the gambit of the city
engineering office?
The toilet situation here in our city leaves me wondering why
there still seems to be the lack of these facilities when our city
health office is spending something like P 700,000.00 a year for
latrines to give out to poor families that need it.
Right now, we have international NGOs that are also giving
out assistance under their WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene)
programs. I hope their combined forces can solve the problem,
once and for all.
In fact, that is the biggest issue why people are complaining
about Lake Danaos lack of facilities. Its just actually about
the CR. We now have stand-up paddles there, some kayaks, floating cottages and reason to have lots of fun but the CRs are not
working as they should be. In tourist areas, good, functioning
CRs are a MUST. Thats the least that they ask.
In Beijing, they still have the squat type CRs. However, as
they are trying to attract the moneyed West, they have already
adapted the seat-types. In some malls, one half is squat type
and the other half, the seat type. There are signs on the doors to
inform you which is which.
Vietnam has a higher respect for the business of our butts.
Theyve even dub it as the happy house because you go in
there uncomfortable but comes out relieved and happy.
There are more quaint stories about cultural differences
that I have seen on my travels, about how we treat our butts and
even our fronts that I could share here but this is all for now.
I just wish that 6 months after Yolanda, with almost everything annihilated, that we somehow grab this as a chance to start
fresh. Shelter kits and housing assistance should be accompanied with decent latrines, at each house (if possible), and that
new buildings that would be put up would have commensurate
number of toilets as recommended.
I heard SM has bought the Aznar compound, which means
they would be also be opening a mall. Knowing their reputation,
I am confident they will be giving shoppers better facilities for
our backsides.

of a sea wall as the sub-project they needed the most. Neither


did they show reluctance in volunteering to ensure that the sea
wall be implemented as planned.
Para sa ikakaupay ng barangay (For the betterment of the
community), said Nelida, when asked why she served as a
Kalahi-CIDSS volunteer who helped work on the sea wall.
Because of the CDD strategy of Kalahi-CIDSS, the residents
did not just get a sea wall, they were also able to get a lot of other
things from the project.
Honesto said, Madami kami nakuha sa Kalahi-CIDSS (We
got a lot from Kalahi-CIDSS).
He continued, enumerating, Nagka-proteksyon ang barangay. Nagkaroon ng hanap-buhay iyong mga nag-labor. Nagkaroon ng pagsasama ang mga tao. Natuto ang mga volunteers
na mag-manage. Nagkaroon kami ng sapat na kaalaman (The
community was protected. Those who worked in physical labor
were able to earn. The people became united. The volunteers
learned management. We got knowledge).
Nelia Colata, 47, could not help but agree, particularly when
it came to participating in physical labor, having served as one
of the laborers herself, hauling rocks to be used in the construction of the sea wall.
She said, Dati, ang babae akala ko, hindi kaya ito. Iyon pala,
kaya ko rin angkaya ng lalaki (I thought women were not able
to do this. It turns out I can do what men could), with pride in
her voice.
They even ensured that the quality of their sea wall will not
be compromised, even if they were already the ones who were
working on it in the first place.
Honesto shared, Watchdog kami. Binabantayan namin ang
pag-implement (We serve as watchdogs. We monitor how it is
being implemented).
Such was the communitys dedication to Kalahi-CIDSS that
they tightened the rules to ensure that the residents take part in
this.
Nelia explained, Iyong mga taga-barangay, nagsabi na
kung hindi mag-a-attend ng Kalahi-CIDSS barangay assembly,
may multa na P500 (The barangay agreed that those who will
not attend Kalahi-CIDSS barangay assemblies will pay a fine
of P500).
She added that they also used the same rule to ensure that
the Family Development Sessions of the Pantawid Pamilyang
Pilipino Program, the Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) program
of the DSWD, will also have good attendance.
Their efforts paid off. Even if the waves rose above the sea
wall during Yolanda, the structure only had minimal damage
to it.
Still, the residents remain vigilant. Honesto shared that when
the community identified that the minor damage to the wall was
due to the lack of a culvert on it, they decided among themselves
to include it even if it was not part of the original design, and
this was approved by the engineer of the Kalahi-CIDSS team
assigned in the town.
Extension
Even so, the problems of Brgy. Minuhang are far from over.
Nelida expressed her hope that their sea wall could be extended
to cover the length of the barangay along the shoreline, estimating that only 25% of that distance has been constructed so far.
Imelda Piaranda, the Barangay Secretary, agrees.
She said, Ang areas ng barangay na walang sea wall, either

program.
na-wash out ang ilalim ng bahay, o nawala talaga (The areas in
the barangay that were not protected by the sea wall either had
their floors of their homes washed clean, or these were washed
out completely).
She shared that her home belonged to the latter, having been
completely destroyed during Yolanda, which is why she, along
with the other residents of the barangay, hope that they would
be able to extend their sea wall.
She concluded, Maprotektahan sana ang buong barangay
(Hopefully the entire barangay will be protected).
Even with these concerns, the Kalahi-CIDSS volunteers who
worked on their sub-project are proud of what they have accomplished, even if the sea wall has yet to be completed.
Honesto summed up what he and his fellow volunteers felt
with his statement:Mawala man ako, proud ako na masasabi
kong isa ako sa nagpakahirap para sa barangay (Even if I will
no longer be around, I am proud to say that I was one of those
who worked hard for our barangay).

rooms. Yolanda totally destroyed two more classrooms


of the school that have yet to
be replaced, she said, and there
are still seven classrooms that
are roofless.
The Department of Public
Work and Highways (DPWH),
she said, gave them 500 GI
sheets but it was not enough.
The roofs of some classrooms,
on the other hand, cannot be
simply restored because the
trusses have collapsed.
By school opening, she
said, some pupils would have
to make do with temporary
learning shelters. Not that she
wanted to sound ungrateful to
the donors of the TLS, but she
said they could become so hot
that students would use umbrellas inside the classrooms
to deflect the heat.
The turnover was festive
and meaningful. The pupils
were treated by the STAR
group to hotdogs and snack
items and were also given
school bags with supplies each.

Belmonte added that Epson


also donated projectors, scanners and other digital equipment to the school.
He described Operation
Damayan as a sort of an
informal foundation of the
STAR Group but because of
its high trust rating and confidence, they are easily able to
raise funds.
Operation Damayan,
he added, has been donating
two 3-classroom buildings
every year to various communities for the past 16 years.
This year is an exception,
though, because they donated
the equivalent of three years
allocation. The devastation is
so much that we had to donate
more this year, he said.
The only cloud in the horizon during the turnover at
Valencia was that burglars
broke into a classroom where
the STAR team have been
camping out, to prepare for
the turnover. The team lost P
200,000 in cash to the burglars.

ORDER
This treats the manifestation with motion filed
on May 12, 2014 by the petitioner, through her counsel. A reading thereof shows that it pertains to her
request for the resetting of the initial hearing to her
suggested date which is June 26, 2014, if compatible
with the Courts Calendar. She also made it of record
that the original date of initial hearing was April 23,
2014 which was cancelled due to the unavailability
of the public prosecutor who represents the Office of
the Solicitor General.
The record will show that the Erratum Order
dated March 10, 2014 in which the date of initial hearing was set, could not be published due to the letter
of Ms. Lalaine M. Jimenea of the Eastern Visayas (EV)
Mail asking the Office of the Executive Judge to bar
publications which failed to satisfy the One-year continuous publication requirement from participating in
the raffle of cases for publication of judicial orders such
as this one. With that incident having been resolved
by the Office of the Executive Judge, the raffle for the
publication of the initial order proceeded and the
initial order may now be published by the winning
publication, the EV Mail, which is a local newspaper
of general circulation in the Province of Leyte.
Accordingly, the motion is GRANTED. The initial
hearing is hereby set on June 26, 2014 at 8:30 oclock in
the morning, Withal, the Erratum Order dated March
10, 2014 is hereby amended to read as follows:
Filed before this Court is a verified petition seeking the Correction and Cancellation of the entries in

have substantially and continuously abandoned and

Leyte is one of 9 LED champions


PASIG CITY The Department of the Interior and Local Government
(DILG) on Tuesday, May 27, 2014, recognized nine local government units (LGUs) for being champions of innovations in local
economic development during the Leaders Forum on Growing
Local Economies at the Marco Polo Hotel.
The forum is an activity under the Local Government Support Program for Local Economic Development (LGSP-LED), a collaborative
program between the governments of Canada and the Philippines,
through the DILG.
DILG Undersecretary Austere Panadero, representing Secretary
Mar Roxas, identified the nine LED champions as Pangasinan, Bohol,
Zamboanga del Norte, Metro Naga, Metro Iloilo, Guimaras, Leyte, South
Cotabato and Sultan Kudarat.
Panadero said these provinces were able to attract investments,
create jobs and increase tourism arrivals within a period of three years
through the LGSP-LED program.
We are grateful to our development partners like the Canadian
government because through their interventions, we are able to provide
LGUs with much-needed financial and technical assistance to enhance
their potentials into becoming business-friendly and competitive entities, he said.
It is always fitting to recognize the vital roles and good practices
of LGUs as potent partners of the national government in achieving
sustainable economic development in the country, and I am glad that
this forum provides for that purpose, he added.
Another highlight of the forum is the launching of the new batch of
LGSP-LED projects for implementation in the provinces of Albay, Aklan,
Antique, Cebu, Davao del Norte, Iloilo, Negros Occidental, Negros
Oriental, Palawan, Siquijor, and Sorsogon. All these projects will focus
on tourism development.
Canadian Ambassador Neil Reeder, local chief executives and
development partners are expected to attend the occasion and tackle
information on investments attraction and promotion, and public-private
partnerships, among others.
Through the LGSP-LED program, the DILG provides technical
advices and trainings to selected LGUs on how to engage local private
sectors in enhancing local tourism industries and creating tourism
programs to attract more investors and increase job opportunities.
From 2011 to 2013, LGSP-LED LGUs have attracted almost P6
billion in investments and created over 2200 new jobs in different
regions in the country. PR

TACLOBAN CITY They


survived Yolanda but did not
live through a 10-minute hell
that gobbled up their plastic
tent midnight of Wednesday,
May 28, at the tent city in
Brgy. 88, San Jose, this city.
The fire killed six young
siblings and their mother. The
fatalities were identified as
Maria Eleza Ocenar, 38 and
her children Kathleen, 12,
Justine, 9, Jasmin, 5, Juvylyn,
3 and Jacklyn, three months
old. John Mark, 6, survived but
died at 1:48 PM at the Eastern
Visayas Regional Medical
Center.
SPO4 Narciso Goyone of
the Bureau of Fire Protection
said that according to the report of the Tacloban fire arson
investigator, a kerosene lamp
could have caused the fire.
Neighbors told responding
firemen that they woke up to
cries for help from the burning
tent, but the fire gobbled it so
fast that it was impossible for
them to save the family inside.
The Tacloban Bureau of
Fire Protection said they were
on site at 12:49, just 9 minutes
after a call came through their
hotline but when they arrived
at the area, the fire had totally
gutted the tent.
Rescuers immediately
gathered the burn victims,
some who were reportedly still
alive, but were pronounced
dead on arrival at the EVRMC
except for the 6-year old burn
victim. The 6-year old John
Mark was badly burned he
could not even lie down at the
hospital bed.
The father of the children,
one Rey Cabangbangan, was
not around when the fire happened as he was reportedly
working at Samar and only
comes home on weekends.
The Ocenar family, according to media reports, are one
of those who chose to stay at
temporary tent shelters given
out to Yolanda victims by
international NGOs after the
typhoon. They refused to be relocated to the bunkhouses but
stayed on the area where their
house used to be. The tent city

THE MORNING AFTER. Neighbors throng around the spot where seven people burned from a 10
minute fire that gobbled their tent dwelling. Note the other tents around. Photo by Melchor Caspe

THE MORNING AFTER - 2. A fire guts a building at the commercial district of Tacloban just
a few hours after the tent shelter fire. Photo by Bobbie Alota
at San Jose is in a coastal area
called Costa Brava, literally
meaning rough coast.
Air travellers to and from
Tacloban City airport would
be familiar about where the
incident happened. It is one of
those tents lining up the road
to the airport which have been
called tent cities.
Meanwhile, Tacloban city
information officer Bernardita Valenzuela, said the Cebu
Rolling Hills Memorial Chapels, Inc., out of compassion
to the victims, has agreed to
foot the funeral arrangements

of the victims. Their wake will


be at the home of the mothers
mother at Brgy. Palanog.
Barely 12 hours after the
deadly fire, another blaze
erupted at the middle of Tacloban City.
The blaze broke out at the
mixed commercial-residential
area at Paterno Street, just near
the historic Hotel Alejandro
owned by the family of An
Waray Rep. Neil Benedict
Montejo.
Two commercial buildings
and five residential houses
were burned. The fire broke

out at 11: 50 and a fire out


declared at 2:14 in the afternoon. However, firefighters
scampered back to the site after
the fire rekindled at 3:25pm.
SF02 Siegfred Flores, officer of the day and team leader,
said the estimated damages
reached P 14,220,000. The fire
originated from the house of
one Soledad Medalla.
The fire, he said, was reported by a walk in informant
Roel Bermoy. By Lalaine M.

Barugo villagers are saved by their seawall


BARUGO, LEYTE If there was one thing that Nelida
Balaes, 31, is thankful for at the time when Typhoon Yolanda
hit the country, it was the fact that they had a seawall that
protected them from the said disaster.
Kung wala iyan, tapos na kami (It would have been the
end of us if the sea wall was not there), Nelida shared, her
statement all the more chilling because of the matter-of-fact
way she said it.
It was the predicted intensity of the typhoon that prompted
the local government to impose a forced evacuation on the night
of November 7 in areas along its path.
On the eve of the typhoon, the households living near
or along the coastline of Barangay Minuhang were asked to
evacuate. While they all complied with the order, they tried to
accomplish one thing before the typhoon hit the country. They
worked as much as they can on their seawall, which they got
through Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and
Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS), one of
the poverty alleviation programs of the Department of Social
Welfare and Development (DSWD). They knew that given the

predicted intensity of Typhoon Yolanda, they needed all the help


they could get to keep their homes and their lives protected.
Typhoon Basyang
Their fears had basis. Maricel Velasco, 30, shared that Brgy.
Minuhang was severely affected by Typhoon Basyang in 2010.
Noong Bagyong Basyang, umakyat talaga iyong tubig (The
water rose during Typhoon Basyang), she said, narrating how
the 2010 typhoon wreaked havoc in the municipality.
Moreso, it was not necessary for foul weather to occur to
trigger the problems in Brgy. Minuhang. During high tide, it
was common for sea water to enter the homes of the residents.
It was these problems that prompted them to identify the construction of a sea wall as the sub-project they needed to answer
their most pressing need. Not wanting to once again experience
the terror they felt when Typhoon Basyang hit the country, they
strove to do as much work for their sub-project as they could on
the eve of Yolanda to try to keep their village safe.
Their fears happened. From their vantage point from the
evacuation centers theyfled to, some of the residents witnessed
the wrath of Yolanda.

Saved by the sea wall


Nelida shared, Lumampas sa seawall ang taas ng alon ng
