DALAN PADULONG SAKALAMBUAN

by: Marie Cris Salomes Ang mga kausaban sukad sa paglingkod sa bag-ong gobernador ATTY.WILTER YAP PALMA .Hingpit nga gikalipay sa mayorya sa katawhan nga nag madaugon si Gov. PALMA ug tuod man wala pa ang iyahang ika-usa kagatos nga adlaw gikan sa palingkod isip GOBERNADOR, nagka lain-laing mga proyekto na ang iyahang napasugdan sama sa kadalanan sa Lutiman ,Guicam, nga sa karon maagian na sa dagkong sakyanan. Ug pinaagi niini ang mga produkto sa isla mamahimong madala ug mabaligya sa silingang lungsod.Mas nadali ang transportasyon. Matod pa sa Provincial Administrator EUGENE JAMBARO ;” ubay-ubay na ang mga proyekto nga gipasugdan siento porsyento nang nahuman nga Otso kilometros nga dalan sa Barangay Talamimi sa lungsod sa Buug, Zamboanga Sibugay ug ang bag-ong napasugdan nga dalan sa Pamintayan ug ang pagpadayon sa pagayo sa kadalanan sa Bateria, Olutanga.

Libreng Sakay
Kahinumduman nga sa unang adlaw sa paglingkod sa atuang Gobernador Atty. Wilter Yap Palma atul sa Flag raising ceremony isa sa atuang empleyado gikan sa PSWDO nga si Mrs. Gliceria D. Laquihon and ninghangyo nga unta duna tay mini bus arun dili maulanan ang mga empleyado. Mitando ang halandong Gobernador apan wala nato damha nga matuman ang maong saad. August 8, 2013 ang unang byahe ug nagpadayun sa matag – adlaw sa ting – opisina. Dako ang pagpasalamat nga gipadayag sa mga empleyado sa kagamhanang probinsyal sa Zamboanga Sibugay sa pagpangulo ni Gobernador Atty.Wilter Yap Palma sa duha ka service vehicle nga gihimong sakyanan sa mga empleyado matag – adlaw padulong sa kapitolyo. Komportable ug mas makadaginot ang mga empleyado ug kuarenta pesos matag adlaw sa pamasahe sa pagsaka ug pagpanaog sa kapitolyo kay sa naandan na nga pagsakay sa habal- habal. Kini usa lamang sa mga ayuda nga gusto ipadangat ni Gov. Palma sa mga empleyado aron wala nay hinungdan nga sila dili makahatag sa saktong serbisyo publiko ngadto sa katawhan sa Sibugay.

EDITOR’S NOTE
SIBUGAYNON is ar KA!
After thorough deliberations, consultations, exchanges of thoughts, head bumps, intellectual stand offs, and referrals the men and women behind THE SIBUGAY BULLETIN “Barog Sibugay” has now come to a consensus that the back page of this letter (TSB-Barog Sibugay) be allocated for publication of important information/announcements from the office of the chief-executive, the legislative department, and rest of the key offices of this province. It shall be used for the benefit of the rest of the reading public to be guided accordingly with what is true nothing less and never to be misleading of what is not. In lieu of said information, given that there is none, we intend to use the page to feature stories of struggles to successes of ordinary Sibugaynons which will inspire us in our dayto-day undertakings and it shall be called ‘SIBUGAYNON iSTAR KA”. We, the people behind this bulletin believe that every story of inspiration be it small or huge in magnitude deserves to be recognized even in just a piece of paper for we further consider that each of us regardless of our shapes and sizes has the chance to be stars ourselves, after all, although we come in different stature, we still are all BORN FREE AND EQUAL. The other media practitioners say that “Good news is no news”, The Sibugay Bulletin- Barog Sibugay is aiming to devaluate that line of thinking. It is our conviction that good news can affect or influence others to be good if not great therefore, “good news is great news” we strongly say. So long as we stick to the fundamental truth and never allow to be used for fanciful calisthenics of “BOASTFUL LIES”, like in the past.

OUT FOR HUMANITY…WHERE’S THE PORK?
(The Evolution of Revolution in PH) by: jpelonia 26 August 2013 is PH National Heroes’ Day, hence, it is declared as National non-working holiday. The Municipality of Ipil together with its stakeholders including the Provincial Local Government of the Province of Zamboanga Sibugay under the stewardship of Governor Wilter Yap Palma and its employees representing the entire province chose to celebrate the day by joining/participating in the “Walk for Humanity” organized by the Philippine National Red CrossZambaonga Sibugay Sub-Chapter. Such event was made on a National Heroes’ Day Celebration to push further the PNRC’s advocacies and to put emphasis and valuation to volunteerism through a showcase of people in different walks of life taking the forefront to bring humanity in a more livable state suitable for human beings. Thus, volunteerism may be interpreted as an act of heroism. It can also be considered as “walking the extra mile”, which simply means, one doing more than what is expected from him or “sacrifice” in its simplest context. Simultaneously, on the same day in Luneta Park- Manila, key cities and provinces in the entire archipelago and even off –shores, Filipinos gathered and tagged as the “grand eyeball” or “million people march” to express their sentiments over the alleged misuse of the Priority Development Assistance Funds (PDAF) popularly known as “Pork Barrel” by some members of the Congress. Though it wasn’t an organized event because the call to come was just posted in a social media site, it came out a surprise for the sightseers because a crowd of more than 400 thousand in Metro Manila alone plus those in other locations that may exceed the target came to respond to the invitation. Thus, this has to prove that revolution in PH by way of People Power has evolved and it shifted to what modern technology offers. Netizens has now become online vigilants. So much so, on that note if we are going to try to combine the idea of volunteerism and vigilantism and incorporate it to our day-to-day endeavor, maybe we’ll go far in bringing this country to a certain level of advancement. The question now is, why do we need to dip ourselves down to these matters? It is because that, while we are indeed Sibugaynons, we are also taxpayers, more so Filipinos first and foremost. Be a volunteer vigilant.

The New Leadership

With the assumption of the newly elected officials in the Province of Zamboanga Sibugay headed by the 3rd elect Governor Hon. Atty. Wilter Yap Palma people from all walks of life see a new beginning a new hope and new dreams and aspirations for Sibugaynons. For the Provincial Capitol employees the same will be felt new beginning and new atmosphere of awareness for everybody to follow to whatever new direction is set as policies will be introduced. `On the very first day of assumption into office of the Governor he emphasized that everyone should work together, set aside politics andopen their hands as a gesture of reconciliation towards the attainment of progress and development which is long overdue. He promised that under his administration everything shall be transparent because he adheres to the principles of transparency and accountability which is the very basis for good governance. Although the Provincial coffers is considered bankrupt upon assumption because of the rampant anomalies beyond imagination not even the concerned government agencies task to oversee in safeguarding were able to stop. True to his statement on the second day changes started to roll on for the Sibugaynons to feel as what he promised. The whole of the Provincial Engineering was deployed to the first district Lutiman toGuicam area to fast track the rehabilitation of their road networks unattended by the past administrationeven if he miserably lost thousands of votes during the last electoral exercises he prioritized what he has promised during the campaign period. . Memoranda for new set of policies were issued to line department setting new policies in line with the national advocacy of daangmatuwid. The first issued policy for a change signaled some chilling effect on employees in particular to and those who were not responsible for their oath as public servant. The bio-metrics for attendance placed in two corners no cash advance for travel policy and maintenance of office cleanliness to be undertaken by the organic personnel as well as the officials. Government vehicles as issued before to different department heads can nlonger be brought home nor be used anytime without proper authorized clearance. They park alongside the capitol premises and can be used only for important matters related to your work thus fuel consumption is extremely reduced to minimum level advantageous to the government in general. Limitation on the use of electricity as a generally austerity meas ure to avoid wastage of government funds. continue to Page 9..

CHAPTER I
In an old belief, one of the reasons why do man keep smoking cigarette, because it relaxes stress mind & enhances brain vigor. When I was a young boy I heard and see a lot of likable thing cigarette had bring, I see a muscled mustache brave cowboys, a pistol side sling on his waist with cigarette on the mouth. A sufficient quality for a young one’s to try to be like of even without pistol and a horse for a manly look. It was on my college days, having a penny on my pocket not sufficient for the best food during break time in comparison to what my classmates had, so the first puff of this forbidden things and savoring its addictive blend come to pass. Ruse for gain developed even the school matriculation cannot exempt the profit guided thoughts just to have even a stick of these illicit stuff. For a couple of decades go by these habitual seethe Ingestion was already includes in my home financial arrangements, health & dutiful experts advices could not prevent me to discontinue these habitual intakes, despite of the heath bulletin disclosures, as; Heath Effect of Tobacco Use: Morbidity and Mortality of TobaccoRelated Diseases, Four diseases are generally considered to dominate NCD mortality and morbidity: diseases 1.) Cardiovascular (Including heart disease and stroke 2.) Diabetes 3.) Cancer; and 4.) Chronic respiratory diseases, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma. These four non communicable diseases are caused, to large extent, by four modifiable behavioral risk factors: tobacco use, unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, and harmful use of alcohol. Among the identified risk factors contributing to Noncommunicable diseases, tobacco is considered responsible for more than two-thirds of lung cancer; forty percent of chronic respiratory diseases; and 10% of cardiovascular diseases. An estimated six million people die from tobacco use each year, causing nearly ten percent of all deaths worldwide, two million more AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. Smoking kills up to half of the lifetime users. It is an epidemic that kills ten Filipinos every hour. Tobacco use was responsible for over fifty eight thousand deaths or twelve percent of all nearly deaths in the Philippines in 2004, according to the world health

organization calculations. Almost eighty percent of these deaths in the country are attributable to the four tobacco–related diseases causing between twenty three thousand to thirty five thousand tobacco related deaths per year. These damaging effects of tobacco to life will continue until is use is controlled. Urgent action must be taken to reduce and reverse the morbidity and mortality from tobacco–related diseases. Conclusively because of cigarette smoking habit, a lot of associates’ supplementary tendencies stir up like loose of food appetite, the longing of wine, beer and coffee because of its match pleasing ingredients to that allied vices, hereafter the occurrence of sleeping disturbances conceivably fire up. Within these conditions this mortal body of mine maybe ours cannot sustain further because of the diseases acquired. Mind you with all the knowledge I have for these dangerous substance, do you think I shall quit smoking? My answer is no, I WILL NOT QUIT SMOKING!

PINOY famous passage? “DAANG MATUWID”, thanks for helping me quit smoking, sooner I’ll reunite again to the smoke free assemblage.

CHAPTER 3
Ambition, Determination & hard work will mean nothing without persistence. My sincere thanks, to Dr. Ulysses J. Chiong- IPHO Chief and his Staff of Zamboanga Sibugay the Provincial Local Government Unit.

THE GOVERNOR IN ACTION
August 13, 2013. Municipality of Imelda, Province of Zamboanga Sibugay at around 9:15 in the evening when a four hour of continuous heavy rains have caused the Bolungisan River of the aforementioned municipality

CHAPTER 2
My Initial reaction to the new administration is, I feel being abandoned because in my accustomed smoking spot overlooking the beautiful town of Ipil was included in the prohibition for non smoking area, alone walking the spacious hallway thinking of how could I enjoy my need when traveling just for a stick of cigarette is not easy, stepping down the coiled stairways to its designated smoking vicinity of the provincial capitol of Zamboanga Sibugay and finding myself “wow” I’m not alone, it seems like a cigarette smoking party downstairs, on my way back to my working table I’d realize, this is not agony but an instrument instead for my long time desire to quit smoking, enduringly a wish for long & healthy life, An existence with hand that steer my children growth to the right path. Its ring a bell to me of the English television show THE EXTREME MAKE OVER a crumpled house to a fine-looking home, normally the artist go off cleaning the messes, curing and purification the abrasion is not pleasant sometimes to live through, every so often its insalubrious. Reconstructing its foundation for the best of our social order frequently comes from within. My favorite columnist Dr. Jesus P. Estanislao once wrote which I’d grapple in consonance with President NOYNOY program. For the improvement to be significant, it should represent a quantum jump. It cannot be mere betterment by inches; at the end of our life, we want to be as far from where we are today by hundreds, if not thousand of kilometers from its reconstructive strong foundation. The improvement has to be substantive. It has to represent real radical change for the better. Is this the which is traversing through the Poblacion Creek of the same town down to the Sibugay River triggered the creek to overflow which resulted to the drifting of a house out of the very strong flow of flood waters. The structure is made up of light building materials situated along the creek owned by one Josephine Joquiño Aplaon, a beautician, married, and a resident of Purok Riverside, Poblacion of the said municipality. Such untoward incident also dumped the Integrated Bus Terminal and the nearby commercial complex in a below the knee of flood waters. There were no casualties reported instead damage of properties such as electronic appliances, furniture and fixtures, clothing and other personal belongings amounted to more or less 60 thousand pesos. Quick to respond were the energetic mayor of Imelda Hon. Roselyn V. Silva and her team and the equally dynamic Provincial Governor of Zamboanga Sibugay Hon. Wilter Yap Palma and his group to conduct ocular investigation for any possible collateral damage and to assist the victims in their immediate needs.

Ang dakong tumong ug tinguha sa atong probinsyal nga pangagamhanan mao ang paglantaw sa kaayohan sa kinatibuk-an ug pagdumala sa Small-Scale Miners pinaagi sa; - Pag-establisar ug lehitimo nga industriya pina-agi sa pagsunod sa balaod nga nahisulat sa EO 79 ug gitawag kini nga “Minahan ng Bayan”. - Sa pagpa-uswag sa atong local nga ekonomiya ug ang kita ma-ibalik ra usab sa katawhan para mo-uswag ang atong kahimtang ilabina niadtong anaa sa kabarangayan o komunidad. Para mahugpong o magkahi-usa kamo pina-agi sa paghimo ug organisasyon aron dali ang pag-abot sa epektibo nga serbisyo sa atong pang-gobierno sa mga gagmayg minero.

Enhancement of the right of the people to a balanced ecology Adherence to the constitution that…Natural resources are Lands of the public domain classified into agricultural, forest or timber, mineral lands and national parks. (Constitution. Art.

With the exception of agricultural lands, all other natural resources shall not be alienated. (Art. XII, Sec. 2) Small-Scale Mining Concern The government recognizes that for many countryside communities mineral are the natural resources of last resort, an attractive option to generate wealth for people who often have no other means of supporting themselves/their families. Yet, the Government recognizes also that, notwithstanding the significant contribution of small-scale mining (SSM), it may result in significant impact to human health and to the environment. Thus, need to be regulated. Both National & Local Government recognizes that the promotion of SSM as a catalyst and an anchor for other productive activities can stimulate the development of complementary and alternative productive ventures necessary for sustainable poverty alleviation. Two laws govern small-scale mining, namely: P.D. 1899 and R.A 7076. Both laws were already devolved to the local government units under 7160. Recognition of The Role of Local Governments. Pursuant to the Local Government Code of 1991 that provides for the decentralization of certain national government responsibilities, functions and services to the local government units (LGUs) as well as in the sharing from the benefits of mineral resources development, the LGUs shall have the following roles in the management of mining projects within their respective jurisdictions: Issuance of Small- Scale Mining Permits/Contracts under PD. 1899 & RA 7076, sand and gravel etc., as well as enforcement of small-scale mining laws involving areas not declared as government mineral reservation, subject to the policies, standards and guidelines of the DENR, are devolved to the local government units specifically to the Local Chief Executive of the Province under Administrative Order # 37-92. LGUs are given responsibility of ensuring that all aspects of public consultation and social acceptability of a mining project as a requirement for securing an Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) are adequately satisfied. As part of the process, the mining project should be presented to the concerned Sanggunian (Panlalawigan, Bayan, and Barangay) where prior approval or endorsement by any two (2) shall be required in support of a mining application intended for development and / or utilization purposes.

In areas covered by the Southern Philippines Council for Peace and Development (SPCPD), Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) and future similar units, the appropriate offices of said units shall coordinate with the Department and Bureau in the implementation of the Act and these Implementing Rules and Regulations. TO BE CONTINUED…… continuation from Page 8: Birds Eye View All these abrupt changes start upon issuanceof executive memoranda and technical people are tasked properly to monitor the execution and implementation as directed. Supporters coming from different places in the province flock to the capitol hoping to be hired to fill up different vacant positions but the governor insists that due to financial difficulty hiring is not yet his priority, his is the stabilization of financial capability in the last remaining two quarters so that delivery of basic services to his constituents will not be hampered. Health care, medical assistance, farm to market roads, educational assistance to poor and deserving student price stabilization for prime products in the province is on top of the priority menu for the chief executive. The governor is a hands on manager who knows his craft from A to Z Sibugaynons see a very clear indications that the Province of Zamboanga Sibugay is in the hands of an up right leader whose mission is to lift up again and rebuilt the ruins although a gargantuan task ahead but the Giant Killer can make a difference. As of the moment every Sibugaynon and the capitol employees in generaleagerly watch the new direction hoping for the best in the last two remaining quarters of 2013.
