No more hiring of contractors by LEYECO V consumers - NEA


Lucy gets 2,000 addl shelter kits from LDS
MANILA - A chance meeting at the Cebu airport led to a partnership with LDS Charities and Rep. Lucy TorresGomez. Gomez was on her way from Ormoc to Manila when she and Benson Misalucha, Area Welfare Director of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, happened to be at the same security checkpoint. Misalucha was overseeing emergency response initiatives in Tacloban and his team was constantly doing assessments on the ground to address the needs of survivors. Days prior to the chance meeting, he read her Love Lucy column in The Philippines Star and noted Gomezs appeal for shelter kits for her constituents in the fourth district of Leyte. A conversation ensued as they shared notes on how to help Yolanda survivors, and arrangements were made on how the shelter kits can be provided. We were so happy when we got the call that the shelter kits had been approved, said

ORMOC CITY The National Electrification Administration (NEA) has ordered LEYECO V here to stop the practice of allowing member-consumers to directly hire contractors to repair their posts and lines, and to refund these consumers who can show proof that they engaged the services of these contractors. This was the information relayed by Max Torcinde, information officer of LEYECO V, to the city council on Thursday (February 27). He said NEA has made it clear that it should be the electric cooperative (EC) that should hire these contractors as additional workforce since it was the obligation of the EC to repair fallen posts and broken power lines. NEA, he added, already released P 100-million to LEYECO V to hasten line rehab and repair and that they were given a deadline to fully energize Leyte districts 4 and 3. The deadline is March 31, he said. NEA has committed to release P 602-million to LEYECO V as subsidy but its release is staggered based on the rate of accomplishment of the EC. TorSEE

Contractors coming over to finish rubberized oval
ORMOC CITY 4th Leyte Engineering District Engineer Lino Gonzales has good news to joggers and running enthusiasts in the city. He said the Chinese contractors who would be working on the rubberized oval at the Ormoc City Central School here were arriving this week, to finally finish the long awaited project. Now that the weather is fine, Gonzales said, we see no reason why it would not be finished already. The Chinese contractors were already in Ormoc City in November. On November 4, 2013, they even held a press conference to announce that they would start work on rubberizing the oval, once they get the desired dryness and humidity. They explained that if they start working on the oval without achieving the desired humidity, they cannot guarantee a 5-year warranty on their work that is why it was important that the weather is fair and dry for several days before the start. Unfortunately, Yolanda slammed into the region by November 8, causing the Chinese contractors to go home. It was also learned that some of the materials for rubberizing the oval which were already stocked on site were damaged by the typhoon. Gonzales, however, is confident that it was only minimal and will not affect its completion. He is sure that the Chinese contractors would have brought more than what was enough considering the distance with which to source the supply was far away.

ALBUERA 44 residents of this town are opposing the nationally-mandated widening of Calle Real here that traverses the towns poblacion area. In a petition vehemently opposing the road widening, the residents claim that the said widening was confiscatory in nature and unconstitutional, it was not beneficial to the people but rather destructive, and because it was destructive, previous administrations opted not to implement it. The petition was addressed to Vice Mayor Norman Mesina of this town and the Sangguniang Bayan. Among the signatories are scions of old families in the area. In expounding their arguments, they said the road widening would destroy the towns landmarks, among them the old Fian Residence which is a destination of architectural field trips; the Calabia and Pore houses which are fine examples of old-style Filipino houses. They also argued that widening the road at Calle Real would endanger students at the Albuera Elementary School because vehicles passing through would feel free to run at 80 kilometers per hour because it is now a highway. They added that Albuera is a small town and widening the road would reduce its land area, pushing up the price of real properties. The Sangguniang Bayan has since endorsed the petition letter to the office of Public Works Secretary Rogelio Singson and Leyte Governor Dominic Petilla. Mayor Ramon dela Cerno reportedly did not sign the resolution, saying to directly submit the resolution to Singson. It was learned that prior to endorsing the petition for Singsons attention on February 17, the SB had a meeting with District Engineer Lino Gonzales to be enlightened about the project. Gonzales informed the SB that the road widening is based on an old Executive Order issued in 1955 yet. The edict has seen few amendments over the years and it is the basis of the road-widening projects that are being implemented nationwide, not only in Albuera. Gonzales explained that as population has grown, road traffic has also increased hence the need to widen highways. The surveys of these highways have been done long ago and residents themselves know this for a long time now. Meanwhile, a public consultation on the matter was held on February 27. The complainants and municipal officials were in attendance, including the DPWH officials. It was agreed to wait for whatever action the governors office or Secretary Singson will do on the residents peti-

Chilean Amb. Roberto Mayorga, wife Paulina and son Roberto Mayorga Jr. led the distribution of 4,000 childrens books for EDCs Schools of Excellence recently. ORMOC CITY - Chilean Ambassador Roberto R. Mayorga once more visited the Leyte Schools for Excellence (SFE) in Tongonan, this city and in Kananga to donate 4,000 books to be distributed to the 18 partner schools of Energy Development Corporation (EDC) in the province. The Chilean delegation also included dentists who conducted a 3-day dental mission for the SFE pupils and the Ambassadors son, Roberto Mayorga, Jr., who came to form youth soccer teams in the area. Mrs. Paulina Mayorga, wife of Amb. Mayorga, also helped in distributing the books. The SFE is one of the corporate social responsibility (CSR) projects of EDC in Leyte. It was established to improve the access of children to basic educational facilities and supplies; to increase the number of students finishing elementary education with improved educational standards; to enhance the capability of public school teachers to effectively deliver educational programs; and to strengthen parents/community involvement. Aside from the SFE, EDC is supporting 18 other schools in Tongonan, Ormoc City and Kananga. In his message, Amb. Mayorga spoke of how grateful he was to have an opportunity to give back to the Philippines by reaching out to the youth in EDCs host communities in Leyte after Typhoon Yolanda struck the Philippines last year. EDC and the Chilean government, through its Embassy in Manila, have previously worked together to promote Chilean culture and art in the Philippines. EDC has also been granted geothermal exploration concessions in Chile. Amb. Mayorga said the government of Chile chose programs that would benefit the youth because based on their experience with disasters in their home country, the needs of children tend to be neglected as people focus on infrastructure reconstruction and providing basic needs such as food and water. While those were important, he said that we must not neglect the need of a child to feel secure which can be achieved in part by strengthening their school environment, meeting their physical needs, and by allowing them to play and have healthy interactions with their peers. By partnering with EDC, Chile is able to

Ormoc sugar farmers start mechanizing ops


ORMOC CITY Unfazed by Yolanda and the stiff competition they are expected to face with trade liberalization on 2015, this citys sugar farmers received the first deliveries of Kubota tractors on February 25, Tuesday, which would pave the way to mechanization of their farms. That afternoon, the sugar farmers, the tractor supplier and Chinabank, had a ceremonial turnover of payment and the 10 tractors to its owners. Also on display was a unit that the H. Serafica and Sons Corp. owns that was already modified with a roof and welded shell to protect the operator from the sun and other elements. The turnover was held at the OSPA Training Center, just nearby the OSPA-Farmers Medical Center that the sugar farmers established for their workers. Atty. Iaki Larrazabal Jr., president of the Ormoc Sugar Planters Association or OSPA, said the Kubota tractors, with various accessories, could be used for plowing, harrowing the soil of their sugar farms, clearing it of grass and fertilizing in a shorter time and less cost than using human labor. Its the only way to make us competitive with the world market, Atty. Larrazabal said. However, he added, they will ensure that their displaced workers are not neglected. They will be re-tooled and taught new livelihood skills, which is the purpose of their putting up the training center. Engr. Ely P. Bagtasus, supplier and president of the Iloilo New Agri-Industrial Marketing and General Services, Inc., said the Kubota tractors are of Japanese make and known for their sturdiness. It is also fuel efficient, consuming only 3.6 liters of diesel per hour. The model of the tractors he delivered is the Kubota B2420 which are 105.1 cm. wide and 241 cm. long. It can also be used on rice fields, liberating the farmers from the backbreaking work of plowing with a carabao. He said that the tractors, which cost P 450,000.00 each, would also make a good business investment for those who would go into rentals. Aside from selling tractors, he also has his own equipment rental business in Negros which proved lucrative. Present also during the ceremonial turnover were Engr. Herme Serafica, president of the Leyte Cane Planters Association and Atty. Roy Bernard Fiel, chairman of the Ormoc-Kananga Milling District and board directors of the sugar associations. Warren del Valle, manager of Chinabank, also handed to Bagtasus the check payment for the tractors. The financing scheme is an innovation of the bank akin to that of their car loans, with the sugar farmers putting up 30% equity.

a hissing sound from their LPG pipeline, followed by a sudden fiery explosion. To escape the fire that threatened to trap him, he destroyed their flimsy ceiling and went out through the roof.

The other business establishments were Ace of Diamond Internet Caf, Chooks to Go, Breeders Agrivet, Dias Eatery, Nios Carenderia, Borinagas Barbecue, and the Perez Nipa Center which is also the residence of District 2 barangay chairman Napoleon Perez. The official fire investigation report states that they received the fire call at 6:48 PM.

Gerzon which entailed calling for assistance of fire stations nearby. Two fire trucks from Baybay City and one each from Philphos and the LGUs of Albuera, Kananga and Tongonan arrived to help put out the fire which was declared under control by 8:05 in the evening, a little more than one hour after it broke out. There were complaints about the fire department responding late but eyewitnesses contradict the observation. Retchie Castantes, the baker on duty, told investigators that the fire immediately spread considering the buildings in the area were old. It was also noted that it came on a particularly hot day, and it has not rained for days now. The fire was contained from spreading further by two firewalls, one on the side of Bing Ming Department Store and the other, at a paint store. Vice Mayor Leo Carmelo J. Locsin and city councilors were also at the scene to help out. First to arrive was Atty. Bennet Pongos Jr.. Meanwhile, councilor Vincent Rama, during the councils caucus on Thursday, lauded the Ormoc policemen for their excellent crowd control. It was the first fire that I experienced in this city that people kept to a distance, he noted. Meanwhile, it was also learned that another fire happened on February 24, the day before. A miki factory at Brgy. Linao was razed at around 8:00 PM but was immediately contained by the fire department. The miki factory is owned by Nellie Elloso and Arlene Casas.

Attn: Tacloban traffic cops & LTFRB


LAST FRIDAY, February 21, on request of PhilStar, I had to be in Tacloban to cover the visit of 8 US Congressmen to a World Food Programme activity. On the way to the site, unfortunately, our car had an accident. While making a turn to the right, a Sarao or PUJ disregarded our signal light and rammed our vehicles side. I could not accompany my better half to the police station to have the matter recorded but already noticed that the registration papers did not match the PUJs make. It was registered to a woman and what I immediately noticed was that it was for a Mitsubishi Space Wagon which definitely is not a Sarao. I pointed that out to the Tacloban enforcer who assisted us, who in turn said it could have been the wrong papers. I did not make a fuss because the WFP service vehicle sent to fetch me arrived and I thought it would be corrected at the police station. Since the accident happened at Corner Real Independencia, we were told it was under the jurisdiction of the station at Brgy. San Jose. The car and the PUJ were escorted there and my hubby was told to pay City Hall the corresponding fee to get an extract of the blotter. We returned to the station by 3:00 PM before returning to Ormoc. We were told that PO2 Jose Rogie Sudario was not available and he was the only one who could release us the extract. I began smelling something fishy then. Nonetheless, since we have an office staff who goes to Tacloban every Tuesday, we decided to leave and let her just pick it up. Surely, PO2 Jose Rogie Sudario should be around or if not, at least have the common sense of leaving the extract behind. The police station is an office and there are officers on desk duty. It is not a turtle that brings around its house. Unfortunately, PO2 Sudario again was not around on Tuesday and my staff was told he had not left them the blotter extract. Hmmm it was really getting fishier. So, last Friday, we went back to Tacloban to get it ourselves. It was just as good that on our way there, I called up a nephew who was once assigned to the Tacloban police station to help us out. My nephew, a police superintendent (equivalent to a colonel in the army) knew the deputy officer there, Insp. Jabiar. Insp. Jabiar was so kind and gracious to accommodate our request to facilitate the release of the blotter extract and we picked it up from his office. Since we were in a hurry to get home, we just even stayed in the car when the papers arrived and were driving away already when I noticed the grossly erroneous entries. The entries of the blotter extract showed that instead of a PUJ, a Mitsubishi Space Wagon bearing plate no. UMN-674 and owned by a Lorelei A. Barbin of Osmea Street in Makati City was the vehicle on record. The drivers name was Jose Certez Jr. y Sumayod of Brgy. 62-A, Sagkahan, Tacloban City and holder of Professional Drivers Licence HO2-88-022450 valid until 2016-04-07. I would not be surprised if the driver and his license would not match also, considering that

Resting while working


LETS GO back again to those beautiful words of Christ about rest, relishing them and deepening our understanding of them if only to develop the proper and relevant attitudes, skills and practices, so helpful to us who are often harassed by a lot of work, pressures and concerns. Gone now are the days of relative peace and tranquility, of innocence and ease, what with all the galloping pace of development in practically all aspects of our lifepersonal, familial, social, economic, political, technological, etc. These developments can either simplify or complicate our life, depending on which turn we take. They too can have both effects, but, of course, taken in different senses. Thus, it is most important, especially these days, that we know where the source of true rest is and how we can refresh and renew ourselves even in the middle of our work. Come to me, all you that labor and are burdened, and I will refresh you. Take up my yoke and learn of me, because I am meek and humble of heart. And you shall find rest to your souls. For my yoke is sweet and my burden light. (Mt 11,28-30) These words were already presaged in the Book of Isaiah: They that hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall take wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. (40,31) These are words that have to be taken with faith. As such, they require us to trust God and to believe in him. They ask us to make some kind of a leap in the dark despite what we can immediately see, feel and understand around us. Thats because these words can sound too sweet or too good to be true. The fact is that we have enough miracles in the gospel, especially that tremendous resurrection of Christ from the dead, that should lend credibility to his words in the absence of immediate and concrete proofs of their veracity. We need to hold on to this knowledge to keep our faith alive particularly when we are heavily tested in life. Christ clearly invites us to go to him when we are working and are burdened. Our main problem is that we tend to ignore him when we work. We only go to him when we meet some difficulty in our work. We tend to believe that we can just rely on our own resources. We have to correct this dangerous attitude. Though we may be endowed with great physical and intellectual powers and many other talents and privileges, we should always realize that we need God always when we use them. Our powers are finite and often choosy. When we reach their limits, then we have no means to keep on going, especially in the face of darkness, tiredness, trials, failures. Even the usual daily work routine can lead us only to boredom. We have to realize that God, being the creator and author of everything, including our very own life, is the unfailing source of joy and peace, of perfect communion with him and among ourselves, which are the very substance of rest.

Legacy
STASH THE baloney. The rising shrillness today, on the political front, is not about ideals, let alone government of integrity that Filipinos have a right to. The din comes from political pygmies scrambling to hijack a 2016 transition of power. Once again, a President will do the unthinkable: heed the constitutional edict and willingly step down after one term. Corazon Aquino did just that. She handpicked Fidel Ramos who scraped up a budget surplus in 1997, even as other Asian countries reeled from the worldwide economic meltdown. But Cory shot down in 1998, President Ramoss less-than-coy bid to pry loose the constitutional lid on single terms. Three years later, she helped oust Joseph Estradas corrupt regime. Erap and cronies swigged P90,000-a-bottle Petrus wine by the caseful in until-cockcrow carousing at Malacaang. To Palace courtiers, Estrada would display a special watch. It counted down the days remaining of his four-year term. Did he chuck that into the Pasig River as he scrammed from Malacaang in People Power Two? Starting in 2005, Cory called for GloriaMacapagal Arroyo to step down for corruption, symbolized in Hello Garci vote-rigging and the NTE-ZTE scam. Sadly, history shows how a bad leader or two can set the Philippines back by years. No legacy is so rich, as honesty, Shakespeare once wrote. Graft never tainted Corazon Aquino. Her son is trounced for his balding pate to being a Torquemada. But filching from the taxpayers till has never been one of his flaws. Corys 1986-1992 presidency evokes powerful memories for Filipinos. The Aquino family declined a state funeral. That contrasts sharply with the Marcoses who insist, up to today, on a Libingan Ng Mga Bayani grave for the late dictators embalmed corpse. Corys funeral procession, from the Cathedral to the Manila Memorial Park in Paraaque, lasted for over eight hours. Black and yellowclad mourners jammed the route, flashing the Laban sign. Her grave is next to that of her murdered husband, Beningo Ninoy Aquino, Jr.. The markers are identical: name, nickname, plus dates of birth and death inscribed in black. Any shortcomings in Corazon Aquinos governing skills were made up for with heart and dogged perseverance, writes Bloombergs William Pesek. Nostalgia for that time inspired

the masses to urge her son to run for president -- an office he never coveted. Aquino confounded the skeptics. Increasing tax revenues; going after graft; defying a powerful Catholic Church on populationcontrol efforts; attracting more foreign capital; and investing in infrastructure and education to reduce poverty. Much more needs to be done. Aquinos administration concedes that the Philippines will miss its 2015 Millennium Development Goal on poverty reduction. We will fall short of the MDG of reducing poverty to 16.6 percent next year, reports Economic Planning Secretary Arsenio Balisacan. The Philippines poverty rate in 2012 remained one of the highest in Asia, (Yet) the country registered an economic growth rate of 6.8 percent, one of the fastest in Asia. New measures being cobbled now into place should trim todays poverty incidence of 23 to 25 percent to 18 to 20 percent, --- when Aquino accompanies his successor to the Luneta for oath-taking. The country has won investment-grade status. If public perception were the sole judge, democracy (here) is in very good shape, reports Social Weather Stations. The present administration outperformed the past regimes. Net satisfaction rating of President Aquino is very good as it garnered scores far higher than his predecessors, even that of his mother. The unsolved Maguindanao massacre case remains a sore point. The survey found that 73 percent of Yolanda victims were satisfied with government response. Peace talks between the Philippine government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front were deemed sign of persistent hope for peace, much more so among Muslims. Over 59 percent of Muslims expressed hope thered be peace between the military and Moro rebels. Estrada and Arroyo left Aquino with a much bigger mess to clean up, amid a less forgiving global environment. Nonetheless, his reform team, spearheaded by women, is making a dent. These include Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales, Justice Secretary Leila de Lima and Commission on Audit Grace Pulido-Tan. He ignored the rigid seniority rule to name a woman, Ma. Lourdes Sereno, as Supreme Court

The state of affairs in the once famous PMA


IT IS indeed very lamentable about the state of affairs in the Philippine Military Academy (PMA), otherwise known as the Baguio Cadets. Back in the late 40s up to the early 50s, anyone who plans to join the Baguio cadets must face a rigorous preliminary exam. First of all, you must be endorsed by a Congressman because it will entail the use of public funds. You must be physically fit with a minimum height of no less than 56. You must also pass a written exam and you must be morally upright and present clearances from your school, any court of justice. This corner was once an applicant. There were two of us from the USJ-R (former CSJ-R) in Cebu City. I cannot name the other because I do not have prior clearance. We passed all the requirements. We represented the whole Visayas region then. Sad to say, we ended up in tears when we were eventually disqualified for having some personal defects. My eyes were then defective. When I asked how come there were officers with eyeglasses, I was told it was alright after having passed inside the academy; not before, as in my case. The other one had adenoid in his nostril. He was also disqualified. The recent case of a cadet that appeared in the newspapers who was a candidate to be the class salutatorian but who was made to resign because of a violation of the long standing tradition of the Honor Code. The Honor Code and the Honor System are supposed to help the cadet to be upright leaders of tomorrow. Even if somebody is not looking, they must live up to the creed of do not cheat, lie and steal or tolerate those who do in and outside of the academy. Presidential Assistant on Rehabilitation and Reconstruction, Panfilo Lacson, a former graduate of the PMA, was once their guest speaker. He exhorted the cavaliers (graduates) to maintain the honor system in the academy and to put premium on the living tradition of courage, integrity and loyalty. This same appeal is being put up by the BCBP (Brotherhood of Christian Businessmen and Professionals) under the heading of honesty. Their placards are even found in most schools and public places. There was a time when the military man was held in the highest esteem. With the advent of the martial law, that esteem was on its steepest dive. Marcos had to play ball with the military and make them very happy by placing them on the pedestal. We all know that martial law can only be successful if there is the military as back up. Look at what happened to those generals that were investigated for having acquired wealth far and beyond what they receive and up to what they get on retirement. What happened to the General who absconded with the money entrusted to him (was it Garcia?); how about the famous Gen. Angelo Reyes who was a member of the baritone singers that regaled the crowd with their voices: Reyes, Joey Lina, et al. He ended up taking his life by putting a bullet to his heart. He was scheduled to be investigated by the Senate. The practice was for the retiring generals to be given P50 million as incentive? Wow!! How about what the officers did to the leftists that were rounded up and jailed for being leftists. Most, if not all of the women, were molested and even raped. Where did the officers get their sense of values? Moral turpitude seemed to be up high in the sky. It concerned the case of graduating Cadet Aldrin Jeff Cudia who hails from Arayat, Pampanga. He is said to have been late in class for 2 minutes and was meted the penalty of 11 demerits plus 13 hours of touring or running around the school campus. He was the number 1 pick to join the Navy. He was given a chance to face the investigating committee composed mostly of his classmates. Development of character and integrity are the paramount considerations of a cadet. He was dismissed from the service after his case was reviewed by higher authorities. This corner considers his case very lamentable and sad.

Education online
GETTING A COLLEGE education is expensive. With high tuition and other fees making higher education increasingly unaffordable for many families, colleges and universities are being pressured to shift to innovative learning tools that can make getting a degree far cheaper. A four-year bachelors degree is still considered an essential requirement into a competitive job market. But experts agree that colleges have little choice except to adapt to changing technological and economic realities. For some colleges, the future include open online courses (OOCs) that can cater to working students and also reach a greater number of learners. Other institutions reject the digital approach altogether, stressing hands-on experience over more theoretical coursework. It is not suggested that either online or experiential learning should completely replace the on campus experience, which still provides students important opportunities for socialization and collaboration. According to experts, the goal is for colleges to blend important elements of the campus experience with new approaches, trying to capture the best of both worlds for students increasingly economically cut out by the cost of a traditional four-year degree. Under the OOC system, the classroom will be a place to come for tutorials and one-on-one instruction rather than a place to be lectured at by a professor. The student would be responsible for watching the videos at home and doing the online quizzes. The classroom time can be used for students to practice with the material. OOCs offer college students several costsaving advantages. And they can also reduce the traffic in Manila and other big cities if more students opt to study via this scheme. Students can watch lectures on their own time rather than attend a class that meets at a specific time and day. They can also take OOCs over a summer, getting enough credits to reduce the number of years or semesters they need to stay in college. It must be emphasized that the role of the traditional university classroom has evolved over time, with a greater emphasis placed on content mastery than content delivery, being less professor-centric, but more student-centric. Theres the worry that OOCs could make smaller, less prestigious institutions dependent on the U.P. professors of the world. A growing demand for big-name lecturers through cheap online courses could diminish wages and job security for less established instructors across the country. As OOCs allow anyone to access lectures from top-notch professors, some smaller schools are trying to make themselves irreplaceable by moving away from the lecture model altogether. These schools are offering hands-on, practical learning that they say you cant get from watching an online lecture and taking a multiple-choice test. With online teaching, traditional departmental distinctions can be removed in an effort to encourage collaboration among fields. But the school can maintain disciplinary groupings of faculty to help students achieve accredited degrees. Just an obvious downside to online teaching: An internet connection is required for it to work. Typhoon Yolanda took care of that and until now internet connection is still very weak (if not absent) in many areas in Eastern Visayas including VSU in Baybay.

The Gospel on Sunday


MARCH 9, 2014 1st Sunday of Lent Matthew 4: 1 - 11 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And he fasted forty days and forty nights, and afterward he was hungry. And the tempter came and said to him, If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread. But he answered, It is written, `Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. Then the devil took him to the holy city, and set him on the pinnacle of the temple,

and said to him, If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down; for it is written, `He will give his angels charge of you, and `On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone. Jesus said to him, Again it is written, `You shall not tempt the Lord your God. Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them; and he said to him, All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me. Then Jesus said to him, Begone, Satan! for it is written, `You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve. Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and ministered to him.

FR. ROY ... from P. 4


To be sure, rest is not only a physical affair. The whole man, body and soul, needs to rest and to continually revitalize himself as he goes on working and expending his energy. What sustains him is much more than just physical or biological elements. It is God, his grace, his light and strength. Remember what St. Paul once said, I know both how to be brought low and I know how to aboundboth to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all these things in him who strengthens me. (Phil 4,12) The spiritual impulses when one is vitally united to Christ are even palpable. One sees greater light, feels a sense of meaning and purpose, experiences an indescribable sense of peace and joy. Though the body gets tired, the spirit continues to be vibrant, reflecting what Christ himself said: The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. (Mt 26,41) Thats why asked his apostles, and us, to watch and pray. This is the secret of finding rest while working, of continually refreshing and renewing ourselves even as we expend our energies. It is to watch and pray. We should never be entirely dependent on our human powers, for if they are not empowered by grace, they can only go so far. This good news should reach all, especially those who are working. Email: roycimagala@ gmail.com

NEA ... from P. 1
cinde said the NEA subsidy should not impact on their effective rate as distribution utility because it was a subsidy. Torcinde, however, was vague on the procedure on how to refund the consumers who directly hired contractors. He also admitted these contractors did not have business permits, hence did not have official receipts. To get their services, LEYECO V inked Memorandum of Agreements with them. He said these contractors are retired LEYECO V personnel and have the skills to help them hasten up repair work. Their rates are NEA-approved and based on what work is demanded like replacing a post or just straightening it up. To discourage allegations of over-charging, NEA stepped in and said it should be LEYECO V to hire these contractors and not leave them to negotiate directly with memberconsumers. The news is good news for those who shelled out huge sums just to restore power to their homes and businesses. Some subdivision owners chipped in P 1,500.00 to P 2,000.00 each. Doris Lam, on her Facebook post, said they paid P 2,000.00 each for their three houses. A P 6,000.00 refund would be very welcome. He also informed the council that repair and rehab of the power lines is expected to gain momentum in the next few days. NEA has sent 14 ECs to help out in the line repairs and rehab. As of that afternoon, he said, they already had teams from LEYECO IV and Bohol helping out. More teams were expected to arrive soon. He added that as of that afternoon, Ormoc City and Albuera which has a load demand of 30 MW were already consuming 12 MW. They also prioritized the large load users because it would help the cooperative recoup its expenses faster. Vice Mayor Leo Carmelo Toto Locsin Jr. said the news of LEYECO V reimbursing those who paid contractors was welcome news. Their familys businesses had to pay a hefty sum just to have power back. He was also happy for the member-consumers who will be getting back their hard-earned money.

NEWS
MANILA - Labor Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz ordered all regional directors and program managers of the Department of Labor and Employment to fasttrack the release of DOLE Integrated Livelihood Assistance Program (DILP) funds to enable survivors to earn decent incomes and quickly recover from the effects of the calamities that recently visited the country. My instruction during our DOLE-wide planning exercise was to already roll out in the first month of 2014 the DILP funds given us by Congress, either for our regular programs or for rebuilding after Typhoon Yolanda. February is almost over, and March is coming, so I expect that our livelihood assistance to calamity survivors will already be making headway, said Baldoz in a press statement, as she expressed concern over the seemingly snail-paced move of program managers to implement programs. Baldoz said DOLE targets 100,000 emergency and livelihood program beneficiaries this 2014 under a regular budget of P609.8 million and 102,011 beneficiaries under Yolanda projects with a budget of P883.98 million for the full year. We have targets to meet, or even surpass, so we better be prepared and be fast, she said. Baldoz said all DOLE regional directors have the responsibilityand are accountable to herfor the implementation of the DILP in convergence with the Departments of Agrarian Reform;

passion sparked a flame of hope, one that glowed ever so gently yet so brightly at a time when even that seemed improbable. For that we thank you so deeply. We will not forget. Latter-day Saint Charities (LDSC), the social arm of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is an application of the admonition of Jesus Christ to help others in need. LDS Charities sponsors relief and development projects in 167 countries. This assistance is rendered without regard to race, religious affiliation, or nationality and is based on the core principles of personal responsibility, community support, selfreliance, and sustainability. On the other hand, the 2,000 additional shelter kits from LDS Charities adds up to the 8,000 shelter kits that she was earlier able to raise from donations coursed through her initiative. After Yolanda hit her district, the congresswoman campaigned for relief donations, among them shelter kits. From the money donations that she raised, she was able to buy 3,000 shelter kits. The Sultanate of Oman donated another 5,000 shelter kits. Now, aside from raising donations for shelter kits, the congresswoman is in the thick of a campaign to build 6,200 motorboats for distribution to fishermen in her district. She has also appealed for donations of seeds and various planting materials to help farmers in the district re-crop their damaged fields. With a press release from the LDS Charities

VIEW FROM ORMOC ... from P. 4


Mr. Pulis PO2 Jose Rogie T. Sudario could not even distinguish the difference between a Sarao and a Mitsubishi Space Wagon. Anyway, we again left for Ormoc without the blotter extract. It was also a good thing that we took pictures and videos of the accident because Traffic Chief Insp. Bernardito Gabral Verallo saw for himself that it was a Sarao and not a space wagon. Verallo gave his promise that the correct information would be re-entered and that we would get the correct blotter extract by next Tuesday. Well, I hope so. PO2 Sudario, in the first place, should have impounded the Sarao for driving around Tacloban City without registration papers. While we just bantered about Sudarios mistake, saying that he could still be suffering shock from Yolanda, I just get this bit of suspicion that the delay in releasing us the extract was quite deliberate. Maybe, he wanted us to lose interest and just let it pass. I would, however, like to remind PO2 Sudario that he has inconvenienced us three times already and my staffs returning there on Tuesday will be the fourth time. Is that what he swore to when he became a policeman, to inconvenience civilians? How many people has he done this already? This last bit is for the LTFRB: The PUJs route was Tacloban to San Jose. Its yellow plate number was HVP 257. I hope there are records as to who the real operator of this PUJ is, because we also noted that its braking system was less to be desired. When the accident happened, the PUJ could not brake well. It could become a road menace.

reach communities in Leyte that have received less attention from international aid agencies than Tacloban City and its surrounding areas which suffered the greatest casualties. Information provided by EDCs Community Partnerships Department in Leyte enabled them to identify the needs of their target beneficiaries and match them with the Embassys capabilities. The 4,000 schoolbooks cover a variety of subjects for elementary school students and follow global education standards. Meanwhile, Dr. Ignacio Rippes Silva and Dr. Natalia Vodopic, treated the cavities of 150 students and educated them on dental health care. Teachers at the two Schools for Excellence expressed their gratitude to the dentists, explaining that most of the students would not have had access to a dentist without the dental mission. Roberto Mayorga, Jr. met with school principals in the area to discuss the formation of youth soccer teams. He also met with members of the Ormoc soccer club to recruit volunteers who could train the children. Mayorga hopes that they can find children who can be developed into future soccer stars of the country. A m b . M a y o rg a s a i d , Sports bring intangible benefits to children. It teaches them discipline and teamwork, promotes healthy competition, and being able to play allows them to just enjoy and be happy. EDC assisted the Chilean mission to Leyte by providing logistical and networking support. Manny Paete, Vice President of EDCs Leyte Geothermal Production Field, said, When typhoon Yolanda struck the Philippines and devastated much of Leyte, including our EDC host communities, many countries jumped to our aid, among them Chile led by His Excellency, Ambassador Roberto L. Mayorga. EDC has been engaged in extensive relief and reconstruction efforts for both employees and community residents.

Capangihan in Tolosa, all in Leyte province. In the province of Eastern Samar, the areas are in Barangay Coticot in Giporlos; Barangay Bulusao in Lawaan; Barangay Sta. Rosa in Balangiga; Barangay Labtic in Quinapondan; and Barangay Siguinon in Salcedo. Castillo said that the CRS readily responded to their call to include ARCs in their assistance operations. However, it was emphasized by CRS Operations Manager Terry Tuazon that they will only be assisting farmers in coconut areas to avoid duplication of similar aid extended by other organizations to rice farmers. Tuazon explained that in order for these farmers start rehabilitating their farms, CRS will provide financial assistance to clear the debris brought by the typhoon. The farmers are required to form into groups of 15 and help one another clear (and plant if seeds/seedlings are available) 15 lots in 15 days. Each farmer will be paid P3,900 for the 15-day work at P260 per day. In addition, Tuazon said, each farmer will also get P1,000 worth of voucher that could be used in procuring farm tools, seeds/seedlings and fertilizers at accredited stores. Earlier, Castillo said, PCA has committed coconut seedlings and camote cuttings for the rehabilitation of typhoonravaged areas. But Tuazon said that farmers could also plant vegetables as intercrops for additional income. Meanwhile, DARs Bureau of Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Development (BARBD) Assistant Director Ma. Elena Cabaes introduced vermiculture to the ARB organizations as additional livelihood for them. The gathered debris can be used as feeds for the worms with a shredding machine. If the farmers are interested, DAR will provide 30 kilos of worms for every ARC and facilitate the sourcing out of the shredding machine from an international organization. PR/By Jose Alsmith Soria

chief justice. He has two years left to cement his legacy. Reforms he championed have to be institutionalized: strengthening the judiciary to clamping down on rampant smuggling at the Bureau of Customs, better schools and power grids. He must focus on laying a foundation that those who follow him can build upon, adds Bloomberg. Aquinos biggest challenge may be to prevent backsliding after hes gone. The president would be wise to begin grooming a successor who represents continuity. (Thatd) ensure that Aquinonomics isnt undone by whoever comes next. Leaving presidential succession to chance would imperil the virtuous cycle Aquino unleashed. Imelda, 83, the shoe-loving widow of Ferdinand, sits in Congress. Her son is a senator and her daughter a provincial governor. Arroyo also has a congressional seat, while Estrada left prison only to be elected mayor of Manila. Women are good for the bedroom, scoffed President Ferdinand Marcos after Corazon Aquino launched her 1986 snap election bid. Marcos chomped on that sneer in exile. In 2016, could history replay by sweeping aside men like Binay, Roxas and Marcos Jr. and see a woman president emerge?

Ormoc Supreme, Ultimate Lions hold 2nd Sikad Alang sa Kalasangan


HEALTH IS wealth, protect the environment. Go biking and plant a tree. This is the motto of the Sikad Alang sa Kalasangan, a yearly Mountain Bike ride and Tree Planting Activity of the Ormoc Supreme and Ormoc Ultimate Lions Clubs. On its second year, these two Lions Clubs spearheaded the activity to promote health and environmental awareness to the community. The Sikad Alang sa Kalasangan commenced with a short program at the Ormoc City Stage on a fine morning of 23rd of February, 2014 and proceeded to Brgy. Lake Danao for the tree planting. As the commitment of the Ormoc Supreme and Ultimate Lions Clubs to Mother Nature, the clubs members and 216 cyclists who registered and joined the event with assistance of the CAFGU unit, planted about 1,200 seedlings. After the tree planting activity, as token for appreciation for the participants and support crew, the Ormoc Supreme and Ultimate Lions Clubs gave a Sikad Alang sa Kalasangan 2014 Pin to them. With the Yolanda aftermath, the newly planted trees will be a boost for our Lake Danao National Park to recuperate, since Lake Danaos forests were devastated and damaged. So we are urging other NGOs and the people of Ormoc to conduct other tree planting activity to help our mother nature to rehabilitate or to return to its former glory. PR

Rotary Club of Ormoc Bay donates medical supplies

THE ROTARY CLUB OF ORMOC BAY continued its rounds of donating medical supplies to various LGU rural health centers of nearby municipalities, and school clinics. On the left most, the group with member Dr. Jigs Capahi were in Kananga, Leyte to give away some medical supplies, a wheelchair, walkers and canes and newborn kits. The group also chanced on a PWD whom Dr. Rose Cam gave a pair of canes outright. The supplies were received by MHO Dr. Noel Albelda. Middle photo shows the group with Matag-ob vice mayor Mike Torrevillas. A mother who just gave birth at the makeshift birthing center at the gym was the first lucky recipient of a newborn kit consisting of diapers, sereral change of baby clothes, a wrapper, and toys, among others. Right most: At Palompon, Leyte where the club served at least 2 barangays and also distributed hygiene kits and shampoos to constituents. The medical supplies were donations coursed through the club through the efforts of past presidents of the club, Dr. Judith Garcia and Iigo Larrazabal which they got from Star of Hope.

Tata Bacho Salon and Spa opens


TATA BACHO, the favorite dance instructor, makeup artist and hairdresser of Ormocs grand ladies, is a story unto himself. Openly gay but very much happily married to Maricel who he has two young sons and another one on the way (they hope its a girl this time), Tata refuses to be bowed by lifes curved balls thrown his way Yolanda included. First, he jokes that a baby was formed in its aftermath and now, just three months after, he opens the Tata Bacho Salon and Spa located at Bonifacio Carlos Tan Steets. Its yellow faade wont be missed. Its his second branch, by the way. Tata continues to reinvent himself, putting him a cut over his colleagues. He admits he is ambitious, and works hard to reach his goals. He does not mind getting his hands dirtied, as long as at the end of the day he brings home the bacon. I remember him best for selling dressed native chicken at the public markets fish section eons ago. Now, hes gone a long, long way Congratulations, Tata, may you have more salons and spas to open in the next few years!

Photo shows Mayor Edward Codilla posing for posterity with the SPs 37 casual plantilla employees after their swearing in. The swearing in and picture taking irks a fake FB account of one of the Citys media kuno group named Jose Carillo Lastimosa who gave his/her dos centavos and lambasted Ondo for showing preference for the SP employees rather that the Beboy, este, Codilla loyalists. The fake FB account was griping about how the plantilla employees of the City Hall since Beboys time (444 in all) were displaced), alluding they were the people who made them win. Ben Tumbling, another fake account, gave Ondo the ominous warning say goodbye to your future political plans. Political observers are asking why Ondo is tolerating this behavior from people on City payroll? Doing FB during office time and undermining his leadership ... Tongues went immediately wagging even before the Ms WLC pageant was finished. Thru text and Facebook PMs, people reported that Ormoc Vice Mayor Leo Carmelo Toto Jr. Locsin was well-applauded, nah that is an understatement, given a standing ovation and a looooooooong applause when his name was announced. He was the chairman of the judges. In contrast, when the name of one lady judge was announced, the claps were few EXCEPT from one gay person who stood up and gave her a solitary standing ovation... Can you guess who the gay person was? LOL

A., New Public Market, Ormoc City represented by the Manager Reuben G. Sy who is duly authorized by the Board Resolution. A copy of the Secretary hereto attached as Annex A|. 1.2 Defendants JOMAR C. CO &/ JUL C. CO of legal ages, Filipinos and residents of Brgy. Talige, Abuyog, Leyte where they may be served with the summonses and processes of this Honorable Court; whilte JOHN DOE & JANE DOE, whose real names and address at present are unknown, are included as party defendant in this case for the reason that he is presently in possession of the mortgaged vehicle, subject matter hereof, and/or the person authorized to operate the said motor vehicle. 1.3 Sometimes in June 11, 2008, defendants obtained a loan from plaintiff and for the payment thereof, they executed a promissory note undertaking to pay the amount of Php. 615,600.00 inclusive of interest, in monthly installments. They bound themselves jointly and severally for the payment thereof As a security for the satisfaction of said obligation, defendants JOMAR C. CO and JUL C. CO had the same covered by the Chattel Mortgage they executed on September 2, 2008 in favor of Plaintiff over a motor vehicle, which is more particularly described as follows: Make & Type : ISUZU Model : 1994 Plate No. : RBA-765 Serial No .: CXG50X-3000809 Motor No. : 6WA1-102669 This chattel mortgage was registered in accordance with the chattel mortgage law and was recorded under entry no. 2566 of the chattel mortgage registry of Registry of Deeds of Ormoc City, on September 2, 2008. Copies of the said Promissory Note, Chattel Mortgage, Certificate of Registration and LTO official receipt are hereto attached as annexes B and C and C-1. 1.4 Defendants have been very irregular in their remittance of the monthly installments in terms of amount and dates and since March 9, 2011 until now, never remitted anymore to plaintiff, leaving an outstanding aggregate balance of the principal obligation in both loans in the amount of Php. 105,494.20 exclusive of the penalty charges, 1.5 In spite of repeated personal and written follow-ups and demands made for defendants to settle their obligation and/or to surrender possession of the said motor vehicle, defendant failed and refused as they still continue to fail and refuse to pay their obligation and/or surrender the vehicle. A copy of the demand letters sent to defendant is hereto attached as Annex D. FIRST CAUSE OF ACTION 2.1 All the allegations contained in the preceding paragraph are repleaded herein by way of reference. 2.2 Under paragraph 6 of the Chattel Mortgage, it was agreed that in case of default on the part of the mortgagor, the above vehicle should be delivered on the demand to the plaintiff. 2.3 Considering that defendants were already in default since March 9, 2011 and that demands had already been made for the surrender of the mortgaged property, plaintiff, under the Chattel Mortgage, has a right to the immediate possession thereof. ALTERNATIVE CAUSE OF ACTION 3.1 All the allegations contained in the preceding paragraph are repleaded herein by way of reference. 3.2 Per said Promissory Note/ Chattel Mortgage, default in the payment of any installment or interest when due, shall at the option of plaintiff, render the entire balance of the obligation immediately due, demandable and payable and the mortgagee can foreclose the property. Further, under the promissory note, such default shall result in the assessment of penalty charges of 6% per month of the outstanding principal obligation. 3.3 In consequence of defendants refusal to pay the monthly installments and/or deliver the vehicle, they are obligated to pay plaintiff the amount of Php. 100,000.00 representing the outstanding principal obligation, plus penalty charges of 6.0% per month from the time of default until fully paid. SECOND CAUSE OF ACTION 4.1 All the allegations contained in the preceding paragraph are repleaded herein by way of reference. 4.2 To uphold its right and protect its interest, plaintiff is constrained to litigate and engage the services of a counsel for a fee of P10,000.00 plus 25% of the amount recovered. 4.3 In addition, plaintiff in resorting to court action for the enforcement of its rights, expects to incur litigation expenses in the amount to be proved in the course of the trial, which is estimates to be not less than P10,000.00 for which defendants should be held liable. ALLEGATIONS IN SUPPORT OF PETITION FOR WRIT OF REPLEVIN 5.1 All allegations contained in the preceding paragraph are repleaded herein by way of reference. 5.2 As above shown, defendants JOMAR C. CO and JUL C. CO executed a Chattel Mortgage over the above described personal property and they were already in default in the payment of their obligation under the Promissory Note. 5.3 It is provided under the Chattel Mortgage that upon default in payment of any or all monthly installment, defendants JOMAR C. CO and JUL C. CO shall surrender voluntarily the possession of the vehicle, which is subject matter of the instant case. 5.4 With their default and failure to pay the monthly installments and the consequent failure to surrender or turn over the property in question to the plaintiff, the latter has long been legally and validly entitled to take possession thereof. 5.5 Considering all the above stated circumstances which would unduly defeat plaintiffs right over the property in question and considering that the same is the only collateral securing the obligation of defendants, there is an urgent need for plaintiff to immediately recover physical possession of the above described property. 5.6 The present market value of the abovedescribed property is Php 100,000.00 plaintiff is willing to post a bond executed to defendants double the amount of the value of the property pursuant to Section 2, Rule 60 of the 1997 Rules of civil Procedure. The affidavit of Mr. REUBEN G. SY, Manager of the plaintiff, and ORMOC DYNOLENDERS CORPORATION in support of this application for replevin is hereto attached as Annex E. PRAYER WHEREFORE, premises considered, it is respectfully prayed unto this Honorable Court that: A. Upon filing of this complaint, an Order be issued for the issuance of a Writ of Replevin in favor of the plaintiff upon posting the necessary bond in such amount as this Honorable Court will fix, for the recovery of the above described vehicle from defendants; B. After due hearing, judgment be rendered to wit; 1. Adjudging unto the plaintiff the lawful possession of the chattel subject to foreclosure/ auction sale to satisfy the unpaid mortgage loan and other obligations per said promissory note with right to demand from defendants for deficiency of the proceeds thereof; 2. In the alternative, should the foregoing for whatever reason is not possible, declaring the liability of defendants to pay the unpaid balance of the obligation in the amount of Php. 105,494.20 plus 6% per month penalty charges from March 9, 2011 until its full payment. 3. In either case, ordering defendants to pay plaintiff Attorneys fees in the amount of P10,000.00 plus 25% of all amount awarded and litigation expenses in such amount as will be proved in the course of the trial but not less than P10,000.00, and cost of this suit. Other reliefs just and equitable under the premises are likewise prayed for Ormoc City, Leyte, Philippines, this 11th day of April 2011. Respectfully submitted, (Sgd.) ATTY. JASPER M.

I am the Manager of the Ormoc Dynolenders Corporation with office address at 2nd Flr. Bldg. A, New Public Market, Real St., Ormoc city. 2. Sometime in June 11, 2008 obtained a loan from the plaintiff and for the payment thereof, they executed a promissory note undertaking to pay the amount of Php. 615,600.00 inclusive of interest, in monthly installments. As a security for the satisfaction of said obligation, JOMAR C. CO and JUL C. CO had the same covered by the Chattel Mortgage they executed on September 2, 2008 in favor of plaintiff over motor vehicle, which is more particularly described as follows: Make & Type : ISUZU Model : 1994 Plate No. : RBA-765 Serial No. : CX50x-3000809 Motor No. : 6WA1-102669 3. JOMAR C. CO and JUL C. CO had been very irregular in their remittance of the monthly installments in terms of amount and dates and since March 9, 2011 until now, never remitted anymore to plaintiff, thereby leaving an outstanding balance of the obligation in the amount of Php. 105,494.20 exclusive of the penalty charges. 5.In spite of repeated personal and written follow-ups and demands made for them to settle their obligation and/or for them to surrender possession of the said vehicle, they failed and refused as they still continue to fail and refuse to pay their obligation and/ or surrender the vehicle. 6. In said Chattel Mortgage, it is provided that mortgagors failure to pay of the installment as may be due under the promissory note shall render the whole remaining balance immediately due and payable and the mortgagee may foreclose the chattel. 7. Further, it was agreed that in case of default on the part of the mortgagor in the payment of any amount due in accordance with the Promissory Note, the above vehicle shall be delivered on demand to the plaintiff. 8. With the default and failure of defendants to settle their legal and just obligation and/or surrender the possession of the mortgaged vehicle to plaintiff, the latter has long been legally and validly entitled to take possession of the same. 9. Considering that aforesaid vehicle is the only collateral held by plaintiff to secure the obligation of said JOMAR C. CO and JUL C. CO, and likewise considering the new dilapidation and deterioration of the same with their continued unauthorized and now unlawful possession thereof, there is an urgent need for plaintiff/mortgagee to immediately take personal possession of the above-described chattel. 10. The property sought to be recovered has not been detained or taken for tax assessment or fine pursuant to law, or seized under writ of execution or preliminary attachment, or otherwise placed under custodial legis. 11. The estimated present market value of the above-described property is Php. 100,000.00 and plaintiff is willing to post bond executed to defendants double the amount of the value of the property pursuant to Section 2, Rule 60 of the 1997 Rules of Civil procedures.

TACLOBAN CITY - The AHON! Sampung Libong Bangka para sa Dalawampung Libong Pamilya program of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) was a success such that it surpassed its target to raise donations for 10,000 fishing boats to give out or repair for fisherfolks ravaged by Typhoon Yolanda. BFAR National Director Asis Perez said they were able to raise donations to buy or repair 10,506 fishing boats and seeing the near impossible made possible, is raising their target to 20,000. 8,069 fishing boats or 75% of the total number of fishing boats they generated is for the Eastern Visayas, she said, while Region 4 gets 213 units. 1,144 were allotted for Region 6, and 1,080 units for Region 7 were repaired or are being constructed. This project will not be made possible without the help of the AHON partners from private sector and the cooperation of the beneficiaries, said Asis. Some of the partners she named are Federico Sevilla and his wife Yolanda, who together with their friends, donated more than 180 boats; a Japanese donor represented by Yuki Iito donated 269 units intended for the towns of Basey and Sta. Rita, Samar; SOCSARGEN Organization gave 256 boats to Bagacay, Tacloban City; and Taal Lake Aquaculture Alliance, Inc. also donated 56 boats, upping their original pledge of 25 boats. Meanwhile, thousands of fisher-folks from different towns here in the Region joined the turnover ceremony of the fishing boats on February 27, Wednesday, held at the Balyuan Amphitheatre. During the activity, BFAR officials distributed 500 fishing boats, fish nets, engine and checks worth P 1,500.00 for gasoline to fisher-folks from Basey, Sta. Rita in Samar; Tolosa, Tanauan, Palo, and this city, here in Leyte. Perez also urged their donors to spread the advocacy among their friends to gather more support to help Yolanda survivors stand up again. PIA 8 with Avha H. Ebalde

P-Noy orders DA, PCA to fast-track P 2.8-B coconut rehabilitation program


TANAUAN, LEYTE President Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III has directed Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala and PCA Administrator Euclides Forbes to conduct an aerial survey of the Yolanda-affected farms in Leyte. The President called up Secretary Alcala on his phone while meeting with farmers in Tanauan on February 27, two days after P-Noy visited this town. Alcala said the President wants to fast-track clearing operations of farmlands, especially felled and scattered coconut trees lying untouched all over, as part of the recovery and rehabilitation efforts of the government. It may be recalled that the government has earlier ordered the release of P2.8 billion for the rehabilitation of coconut farms in the region which were among the hardest hit by super typhoon Yolanda. PCA said that more than 13 million coconut trees were totally damaged by Yolanda in the region, with Leyte accounting for the bulk. In the province of Leyte, roughly 9.6-million of the 12,600,416 reported felled trees were totally damaged with losses estimated at P10,042,844,650.

HIS EXCELLENCY PRESIDENT BENIGNO SIMEON C. AQUINO III witnesses the MOA signing at Tanauan between Mayor Pel Tecson and DPWH Sec. Rogelio Singson for the rehabilitation of the town plaza during his recent visit to Leyte on February 25. Standing with him are Leyte governor Dominic Petilla, GKs Tony Meloto, DILG Sec. Mar Roxas and Energy Sec. Carlos Jericho Petilla. By Gina Gerez The PCA, meanwhile, also recommended to Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala to increase the number of chainsaws mobilized for cutting damaged coconut trees in order to speed up the work. Currently, there were 300 chainsaws deployed by DA for the purpose and PCA is recommending 1,000. The P2.8-billion budget for rehabilitation of the coconut industry is broken down into: P280 million for clearing operations; P1.6-billion for the procurement of fertilizers, including administrative and the delivery costs; P500-million for the replanting program; and P500-million for intercropping to give farmers income as they wait for their coconut trees to bear fruit.
