Binay concerned over GSIS non-payment of insurances


ORMOC CITY Vice-President Jejomar Binay Jr. said the first thing he will do when he gets to Manila will be to check on why the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) has not yet released a single centavo to pay the insurance coverage of government-owned infrastructure. He expressed concern that it was delaying the rehabilitation of these public infrastructures, at a time when LGUs need it most. Binay said he once worked for Insular Life for four years, and they were prompt to pay claims because that was what getting insurance coverage was all about, to help clients through hard times.

Leyeco V American Suits actor visits sari-sari store in starts billing Ormoc for Globes Project Wonderful consumers
By LalainE M. JimEnEa
GABRIEL MACHT, known as the dashing law practitioner Harvey Specter in the television drama Suits was in Ormoc City on Saturday, March 8. He arrived at the Ormoc City Airport at around 3:00 PM and was welcomed to the city by Leyte Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez. Macht was in Ormoc for Globe Telecoms Project Wonderful, a corporate social responsibility program of the telecommunications firm aimed at helping victims of Typhoon Yolanda. Accompanying Macht was Maria Louisa Issa Cabreira, Globe Prepaid vice-president. Machts first stop in Ormoc was a sari-sari store at Brgy. San Antonio. Its owner, Virginia Polinio, 53, was a recipient of Globes sustainable livelihood program being implemented in partnership with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). At the site, Macht, Rep. Gomez, and Cabreira, installed a tarpaulin sign at the stores faade with Load Na Dito on top of stores name JollyBes Store to indicate it was a Globe-assisted endeavor. They also had photos with the visibly ORMOC CITY The Leyte Electric Cooperative V, the electric distribution utility here, has started billing its members.

Their last bill for October 2013 was P 8.799, a copy of which she also posted. Rizal Street, where Velasquez lives, were among the first streets to be energized after the typhoon. Other areas which took later to energize have yet to receive their SOA. Velasquezs post was welcomed by Facebook friends, saying the post have allayed their fears that the electric rates could go up. LEYECO V claims that their estimated damage from Typhoon Yolandas wrath is P 800-million. However, the National Electrification Administration has announced it would give LEYECO V a P 600-million subsidy, which should not affect the old rates of LEYECO V as it is not a loan. The NEA has already released the coop P 100-million and the additional

Cabreira said that after Yolanda struck, their various divisions immediately went into relief and assistance mode to help victims of the typhoon. Cabreira told media that their intervention in Polinios case was to give her the opportunity to increase her income by giving her a startup kit to be able to sell pre-paid load. Polinio received a cellphone, a SIM and load of P 1,000 to start selling pre-paid load. Globe has been granting business to beneficiaries identified by DSWD as part of its Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP), a community-based capacity-building program that seeks to improve the socio-economic status of program participants. There are many more beneficiaries of Globe Telecoms livelihood not only Ormoc but also in other Yolanda-affected areas, said Cabreira, but stressed the beneficiaries are identified by the social welfare officers of these areas.

Would-be salvage victim escapes death, confesses to pushing drugs
A WOULD-BE victim of a botched salvaging escaped death when he was left for dead along the side of the road at Brgy. Cagbuhangin, this town, early morning of March 4 (Tuesday). He is currently under the protection of Police Station 2. The victim confessed to the Ormoc cops to pushing and selling shabu and earned the ire of his drug lord after failing to remit P 11,000.00 for stocks he got from the undisclosed lord in 2011. However, he pinpointed the people behind the attempt to kill him. The victim, who suffers a gunshot wound to his mouth, was identified as a Jerry Cabalquinto, 36, a resident of Poblacion, Kananga, Leyte. He identified his would-be killers as Abet and Pakyaw, both surnamed Maranso, also from Poblacion, Kananga. He told the police that the two fetched him from his house at around 2:00 AM of March 4. He was told they were going to Ormoc for something important. However, upon reaching an isolated and dark stretch of the road at Brgy. Cagbuhangin, the driver stopped his motorcycle and told him to get off, at the same time pointing a gun to his face. Pasensya ka na bay (Forgive us, friend), were the words he heard from one of the suspects before firing his gun. The shot hit him on the mouth and stunned him, causing him to fall to the ground. Thinking he was already dead, the two hurriedly left the scene. The victim, when he gathered strength, immediately ran into the sugarland nearby and sought help. He would end up in the house of an Epifanio Morimonte, who was the one who asked the help of the barangay chairman. Brgy. Chairman Eduardo Nazario then informed the police, who brought the victim to the hospital. Sr. Insp. Maturino Diaz, chief of police of the police station 2 at Brgy. Valencia, said they are keeping the victim under protective custody because they are sure there will be efforts to kill him for good. By Paul Libres NOW SHOWING @

ORMOC CITY As part of its broader support to help improve education in the Philippines, the Australian Government has partnered with The Asia Foundation to help restore the learning resources of schools damaged by super typhoon Yolanda in Eastern Visayas. Australia donated 2,000 new books to schools hit by typhoon Yolanda in Ormoc City, Leyte through The Asia Foundations Books for Asia program. Australias support reflects our commitment to help Filipino children have access to quality education especially in Eastern Visayas where typhoon Haiyan left 668 schools damaged. These books from The Asia Foundations Books for Asia program complement Australias assistance to Ormoc schools, Geoff King, acting minister counsellor of the Australian Embassy in Manila, said. In the aftermath of Typhoon Yolanda, Australia provided immediate support for repairs of schools in Ormoc by sending Australian engineers and military service personnel to help in clearing and repair operations. King added: We join The Asia Foundation in the belief that how society pays attention to its schools determines how it values education as a powerful way to overcome poverty. We hope that new books and better classrooms will inspire students to learn while having fun, and to study harder. For his part, Ky Johnson, deputy country representative of The Asia Foundation, said, The damage from typhoon Yolanda didnt just affect homes, roads, and lives but also the ability of our school

Lad, 15, tries to rape mom


A 15-YEAR old tried raping his own mother midnight of March 5 (Wednesday) at their house in Brgy. District 26. The youngster is now detained at the citys holding center for minor offenders. Jane (not her real name), 43, said her son tried to rape her that night, forcing her to seek the help of barangay tanods. She was accompanied to the police by Brgy. District Chairman Ciriaco Tolibao III where she asked the cops to detain him. It was learned that her son, Gerry (not his real name), learned vices early. That fateful day, he smoked marijuana, followed by a drinking spree with equally young friends. They finished their evening with a boiled concoction from a Katyubong, a flowering plant which is used to remedy asthma in the mountains but which is also said to be a powerful hallucinogen.

Johnson thanked the Australian Government for supporting the Books for Asia program. He said The Asia Foundation is also grateful to McGraw Hill companies for their generous donations of new books to the program. The book donation project falls under the long-running Philippines-Australia Community Assistance Program (PACAP), a small grants program managed by The Asia Foundation that supports civil society organizations and poor communities throughout the country. Australia continues to be the Philippines lead bilateral grant donor in basic education. The Books for Asia program distributes free books and supplementary reading materials to schools nationwide as a continuing commitment to promote education and literacy in the country. Government reports say the Philippines education sector alone had a total damage estimated at P21,679.70 million, P11,400 million of which accounts for damage to public basic education school infrastructure. The damage also includes school furniture, computers, learning materials, and sanitation facilities. Photos by Jhay Gaspar

The members of the Rotary Club of Ormoc Bay with the first batch of beneficiaries. THE ROTARY Club of Ormoc Bay, with the help of donations from various sources, has made a difference in the lives of 127 victims of Yolanda who availed of its iRebuild a Home project. The beneficiaries, who were released housing materials up to a maximum worth of P 20,000.00 each, are personally known to the members to ensure that the materials are really used as intended. The selection process was strict through a special screening committee headed by lawyer Evergisto Escalon. In a report to the club this week, Escalon said that there were 144 applicants. 127 were approved while 14 were deferred pending completion of requirements. The club requires the applicant for pictures of his house, whether partially damaged or totally, a bill of materials, and a certification from the owner of the lot they occupy that they are not squatters. Once approved, the applicants are given vouchers for the materials they need which in turn, they get from an accredited supplier. Lawyer Luz Escalon, RCOB president, said that the bulk of the donations use for the iRebuild a Home project came from the Rotary Club of Liberty Texas, a sister club. When Yolanda hit, the Escalons were in the United States and had the chance to visit the club. There, she said, they were warmly received and all the members were eager to help in the relief efforts here. The club still has some funds left for the iRebuild a Home project and are now in the process of identifying beneficiaries.

Another European cruise ship to make a stop at Kalanggaman Island


advanced ones who likes a challenging dive. Bacalla said the island was healing itself and slowly shaping regaining its old shape. The white shifting sandbars, dispersed by Yolandas strong winds and waves, are now back. MS Europa 2, a 5-star cruise ship, is the newest addition to the fleet of Hapag Lloyd Cruises of Germany. It was built last year and Kalanggaman island was part of the destination during its first Asian stop last January. Of its 230 crew members, 130 are Filipinos. On the other hand, no less than Tourism Secretary Ramon Jimenez visited Palompon a few weeks ago. He was with

different cruise handlers in the Philippines. They assessed how cruises can be expanded to include other destinations in Palompon, and other places in the region. Other islands promoted by cruise handlers are Limasawa in Southern Leyte, the seat of Christianity in the country, and Capul in Northern Samar for its historical and religious value and beautiful scenery. With Jimenez was Mark Lapid of the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA) and Tourism Assistant Secretary Victoria Jazmin. They also assessed the infrastructures needed in Palompon after the monster typhoon. By Vicky C. Arnaiz

TACLOBAN CITY Kalanggaman Island, the crown jewel of the tourism industry in Leyte, truly shines as Palompon town officials prepare for the return of MS Europa 2 on March 19. And despite being badly ravaged by Yolanda, town officials say they are ready for them. In fact, it will be the second time for the MS Europa 2 to stop by after Yolanda hit Leyte on November 8. This will also be the fourth time in less than a year that a cruise ship made the small island a stopover on its Asian cruise. Cruise ships of the German Hapag-Lloyd Cruises have included Kalanggaman as a stopover in their Asian tours after the first European tourists made a stopover and gave it good reviews. Raoul Bacalla, acting president of the NorthWest Leyte Tourism Alliance and the Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Officer (MENRO) of the municipality of Palompon said there are no clear details yet as to how many tourists MS Europa 2 are bringing this time but in January 10, 2014, they brought 300 tourist and crew members for a shore excursion. MS Europas stopover last January was providential. It spurred local officials with the help of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) to prepare the island and other destinations for the visitors. After a massive cleanup, Kalanggaman Island was re-opened in an Abre Grande (grand opening). Bacalla said that after the typhoon, almost all the established tourist destinations in their town were leveled to the ground and tourism activities were halted for two months. He added Palompon Mayor Ramon Oate is very excited of this development as it would help the towns economy. When European tourists visited the island last time, Mayor Oate said that it was a good development as it sent a message to tourists to also visit the different tourist destinations in the Visayas because even Yolanda-affected areas were already ready to receive them. Kalanggaman, before it gained national and international renown, has been a popular excursion destination for Leyteos already. Tourists love its powdery white sand, clear blue waters, coral reefs, clean surroundings, an awesome sunset and sunrise. One side of the island is also a mecca for divers, especially

Tzu Chi to build relocation on disputed land?


JUST WHEN I thought it was just another so-so week, I discovered information that at the very least, I would describe as disturbing. It pertains to the land where the muchvaunted Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundations relocation site development would be established, purportedly donated by Mayor Edward Codilla and his wife Violy. It is allegedly a foreclosed property that the couple bought from the Philippine National Bank. However, I just learned there is still a case in Court about it, as the original owners are contesting the foreclosure. If we are talking about the same property, it seems that Tzu Chi will be building the relocation site on the tears of a family, once moneyed until their fortunes turned a few decades ago. I stumbled on the information quite by chance. I was in Court last Friday when a case caught my attention. I was not interested in the main case but the case inside the case that involved publication in local newspapers. Anyway, it peaked my curiosity so much that it led me to discover it was a case involving allegedly the same property that the mayor and his wife want to donate to Tzu Chi. Wait a minute, I asked myself, how can the mayor and his wife donate something that is still being disputed in Court? And from the way they are contesting and staking their claim to it, I dont think the family involved is willing to give up that easily, much less have it donated to a foundation just to make some politicians look good. Okay, I appreciate the generous gesture of donating property for a noble cause. Ormocanons have been known to be very generous. We have so many of them here. Theres the Poten Larrazabal family who donated 5 hectares in Patag to the EVSU just so it would have more room to grow; there is also Jose Bing Serafica who donated another 5 hectares, also to EVSU, which is now their campus in Luna; theres the Capahi who donated her residential compound to the Archdiocese of Palo, reportedly intended to become the Archbishop Palace in case Ormoc becomes a separate Diocese. There are even some not so ilustrado surnames whove donated their lands the Ybaez patriarch in Tongonan and a Genaro Lureana (?) whom schools have been named after in memory of their donations. I am pretty sure there are more. The groundbreaking of the relocation site was scheduled on March 8. As I write this, that would be yesterday. I dont know if it pushed through. And I dont know, either, if Tzu Chi is aware about the circumstances surrounding the land that is to be donated to them. I also do not know if the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation would be happy to put millions into a land of blood and tears. After all, Buddhists are known to respect life, even that of the smallest worm. It is undisputed that Ormoc City needs a resettlement site badly for its informal settlers.

Glory in humility
WE NEED to know how to live in glory without compromising our humility, and vice-versa, how to live in humility without undercutting the glory proper to us as persons and children of God. Yes, we need to distinguish between proper and improper sense of personal glory, and between true and false, or healthy and sick humility. Our life is not supposed to be a life meant for suffering alone, hounded always by difficulties, problems, anguish, though these, given our condition now, are also unavoidable. It is meant to be a happy life, verified universally by our undeniable innate desire for joy. And this is because as image and likeness of God, as children of his, as persons with the capacity to know and to love, we are meant to live our life with God who is all goodness, all love and mercy, omniscient and omnipotent. We cannot help but move toward this ideal. These truths are the basis for our glorying in humility. Glory and humility need to go together, because our glory is a participation, a reflection of the glory of God. And such objective order of things requires a healthy humility that is not just a nihilist kind of self-denial, but a self-denial that allows God to enter into our life. St. Paul tells it to us directly: He that glories, let him glory in the Lord. (2 Cor 10,17) The same idea is echoed in a prayer in the Liturgy of the Hours: The wise man must not glory in his wisdom, nor the strong man in his strength, nor the rich man in his riches. Rather, let him who glories glory in the Lord by seeking him and doing what is right and just. As to the basis of our need for humility, again St. Paul tells us: What do you have that you have not received? And if you have received, why do you glory as if you have not received it? (1 Cor 4,7) All those exhortations about humility, about self-denial, about having to pass unnoticed, etc., are not meant to plunge us into darkness and a joyless life. They are not meant for us to simply drift in passivity, or to sink in fear or despair. They are meant to give us the glory proper to us. They are meant to make us truly happy, active, liberated. These exhortations are made in view of our wounded condition due to the effects of sin. Truth is with our sinfulness we tend to think our glory and joy are produced and sustained by our own efforts alone, or our own natural endowments. This is nothing other than vainglory. Its an illusion, a false, mistaken understanding of our own selves. To be humble is never meant to make us assume a passive attitude toward life. That it is sometimes associated with shyness, with signs of an inferiority complex means that authentic humility also has its own share of weeds that look like the real plant but are actually a pest. If we are to consider the life of Christ and the saints who were all humble, we can clearly see that humility is always marked with glory, joy and an active attitude toward life. St. Paul even went to the extent of saying: Be imitators of me as I am of Christ. (1 Cor 4,16) It would be good that we get a global picture of our life as presented to us by our Christian

New balance
MARKING THE first year as pope is an arbitrary measure for a 2,000-year old institution that thinks in terms of centuries, notes the Guardian newspaper. That provides context for Pope Francis, wholl complete his first year as pontiff March 13. The man, who booked an Argentina return flight after the 2014 papal conclave, amazed people since. Wear it if you wish, Monsignor, he said, waving away a new popes cloak, The carnival is over. Clad in a plain cassock, he asked blessings first from startled crowds in Piazza San Pietro. He shunned papal apartments, kept his spare Casa Santa Marta lodging and shares meals with guests. Pius XII ate alone most time during his 1939 to 1958 papacy. We went down for coffee break, recalls Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Texas. I turn around, and its the pope! Hes in line to get coffee himself. No flunkies surround him.... It was stunning. He wanted to shake up the church. And weve all been shaking since, even in ultraskeptical Western Europe, wrote the UK Telegraph. His words carry moral force because he lives them out every day before our eyes.... Ministers of the gospel must warm the hearts of people as they walk through the dark night, he said in a La Civilt Cattolica interview. They dialogue without getting lost. People want pastors, not clergy acting like bureaucrats.... Hes upset sacred apple carts, as Jesus once did. But changing the storyline is different from changing the story. Two millennia teach the Vatican never willingly reformed itself. It had to be led. And ultra-righters calculate how long a 77-year-old, with part of a lung missing, will endure before arrival of another new broom, hopefully more to their liking. Francis has not accommodated them. He overhauled the Vaticans financial system late February, the Financial Times reports. He set up a central bank then handpicked Cardinal George Pell of Sydney to head a new secretariat for the economy. Staffed by eight clerics and seven lay experts, it oversees all economic and administrative activities within the Holy See and Vatican City State. Francis is to name an auditor with oversight powers. The church must manage assets in the light of its mission to evangelize, with particular concern for the most needy, he stressed. Vatican finances were out of control, ob-

served Carlo Marroni, who covers the Vatican for Il Sole 24. Each department acted as an individual centre of power. The real break with the past is that the pope created new figures, with powers of intervention and who report directly to him. Sure, Francis embraces simplicity, writes John Allen in the Boston Globe. But hes hardly a simple man. In fact, he is also an extraordinarily crafty politician. He addressed a festering complaint by cardinals that they could never get a straight answer from the Vatican about finances. A no-nonsense guy, Pell is not likely to be cowed by Vatican mandarins who resent intrusion on their prerogatives. Francis appointments bypassed Italians. Historically, Vatican has been heavily conditioned by an Italian ethos. Forms of corruption were not even perceived that way. Rigging competitive bidding or lending a veneer of legitimacy to money transfers on behalf of fatcat benefactors, are seen as keeping things in the family. Francis and Pell see eye to eye on transparency and accountability. On doctrinal matters, Pell is a staunch conservative. If he took over Congregation for Bishops, as rumored years back, its entirely possible Francis might today be contemplating how to get rid of him today, Allen adds. In one fell swoop, Francis gave himself a chance to name a new leader for the Australian church and also a capable ally in a spot where hes qualified to get things done. Has Franciss message seeped into a Philippines, a country of 96.7 million where 76.1 million are Catholics? Until recently, some Catholic bishops threatened fire and brimstone in attacking the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Act of 2012. So did conservative prelates elsewhere. We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and use of contraceptive methods, Francis said early on. This is not possible... Talk about them in context.. and find a new balance. And at his Ash Wednesday mass, he stressed: We are creatures; we are not God. Too many people today think they have power

EDSA is for the whole Philippines


IT IS not fair for some people to declare that EDSA is for Manila just because Edsa is in Manila. For those who have not gone to Manila, Edsa spans several cities: Pasay, Manila, Taguis, Makati, Mandaluyong, Pasig, San Juan, Quezon City, Caloocan. Yet, even Pres. P-Noy declared that Edsa belongs to the people. By people, it means all the 100 million or so people that compose the whole nation, according to the latest population survey. The nation is comprised of 7,107 islands. It is therefore presumptuous for Imperial Manila to claim EDSA exclusively theirs. Lest we forget, then candidate Cory Aquino was given safe refuge in Cebu because of the fear of an angry Marcos who was proclaimed as the winner for another term for President by the Batasang Pambansa during that snap election in February 1986. If there was no Cebu, where would Cory have hidden? So many Cebuanos wanted to go to Manila to join the protest movement in Edsa but there was no available boat. Maybe, it was part of the plan of the Marcos cronies to limit people movement. It was a brilliant idea for Pres. P-Noy to declare that EDSA is for the whole nation in connection with the 28th anniversary of this historic event when the much-maligned Marcos dictatorship was toppled in a peaceful upheaval of people power. This event was the envy of nations all over the world that were similarly situated. Some of them even copied our example of overthrowing the mighty dictator Marcos. Who can believe what we achieved? When some in China tried to follow us, they were promptly crushed by the weight of tanks that were used to trample on them in Tiananmen Square in order to disperse them and show to others that their government meant business. It is rather ironic that the people power was led by Defense Minister JP Enrile and Lt. Gen. FV Ramos (a Marcos cousin?). In other words, they could no longer stomach too much of the cheating of the Marcos regime when the 1986 snap election was as crooked as a fishermans bag full of hooks. This corner even remembers when the computer programmers manning the computers at the PICC walked out simultaneously in protest. They could not believe that the tallies for Cory stood still after reaching a certain level just because the tally switched to that of Marcos. When Marcos ordered curfew after 9:00 PM, they were expecting the worst. Sad to say, the worst came but it was for Marcos when he and his whole family took a helicopter ride for Hawaii. It was even said that he thought it was a ride to Paoay in the Ilocos region. Baloney! Madam Imelda did not forget to bring some of her jewels. What a way for a great man to depart with haste to save his skin. Without the letter A in EDSA, Epifanio de los Santos was a hero of all Filipinos. Why is it that Manila always claims to be like Imperial Manila? What is so grand or so imperial for Manila to claim such an honor? One of these days when Metro Manila gets hit with a super typhoon like the one that devastated us with Yolanda, then they will kneel on their knees and remember that there is a God after all. This corner is a Manila boy. I was born in Paco, Manila. I should have been the proud one, but I am not making bones about it. It is not really a big thing! Give me Cebu or Ormoc any time! If Edsa belongs to the people according to Ms Valte, spokesperson of Pres. P-Noy, it must have to be for the people living in all the 7,107 islands that comprise the whole country and not just for Manila. Where are now the ideals that brought about the people power in 1986? Is it not back to square one? Graft and corruption? All the evils that pervaded then are now being rehashed. Are we really gloomed to be down in the depths instead of up there i the forefront where we reached before and doomed to be the Sick man of Asia?

Marriage analyzed
MY WIFE is conservative when it comes to marriage and cohabitation. For one, she believes in the proper sequence of love, wedding and then baby. I think that these are all societal dictates and people should adjust with the changing times and customs but she passionately disagrees. As a battle heats up over the rights of gay and lesbian couples to get married, experts say the share of heterosexual Americans who are married has fallen compared to past decades. The demographics of who is walking down the aisle also have shifted substantially. In recent years, people with a college degree have become more likely to get and stay married than their less educated counterparts, and those who stay married also tend to be much wealthier than unmarried adults. Thats a complete switch from decades past, especially for women, according to the researchers analysis of government data on womens marriage patterns by education. Back in the 1940s, college-educated women were the least likely to be married. The opposite is true now. As of 2011, around 60 percent of women with college degrees were married, compared with less than 50 percent of those with a high school degree or below, the analysis found. Some experts argue that marriage itself is contributing to rising inequality, because people who are highly educated, and therefore have higher income potential, are more likely to choose each other as spouses. Thats making it less likely that marriage itself will move someone up the economic ladder, and increasing the chances that two low- or high-income people will couple up and share their economic struggles, or fortunes. The doctor used to marry the nurse. Today, the doctor marries the doctor. There are lots of theories for why people are increasingly choosing spouses with similar educational backgrounds or believing that they are not in a financial position to choose marriage at all. Studies show that one factor seems to be a growing preference toward democratic marriage. Thats opposite the old model of dividing tasksthe husband goes to work while the wife takes care of the domestic tasks. Another factor may be that both men and women, subconsciously or not, are looking for a spouse who can provide financially. Its an economic reality that people feel like they need two earners in the family to meet a given standard of living. Research has shown that higher levels of education, and thus income potential, also greatly reduce the likelihood of divorce. Its not just that college-educated people tend to choose each other; experts say they also are more likely to choose marriage at all. Thats partly to do with a growing sense that just to be husband (or wife) material, a person needs to have already met certain financial indicators like having a good, stable job. For many people with low education and economic prospects, those can become overwhelming problems. Instead, many people are choosing to live together without getting married. But experts say that living together is not going to be a replacement for marriage. Cohabitation has not become marriage-like and is much less stable. It usually does not last nearly as long.

The Gospel on Sunday


MARCH 16, 2014 2nd Sunday of Lent Matthew 17: 1 - 9 And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain apart. And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his garments became white as light. And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, talking with him. And Peter said to Jesus, Lord, it is well that we are here; if you wish, I will make three booths here, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah. He was still speaking, when lo, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him. When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces, and were filled with awe. But Jesus came and touched them, saying, Rise, and have no fear. And when they lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only. And as they were coming down the mountain, Jesus commanded them, Tell no one the vision, until the Son of man is raised from the dead.

THE VIEW FROM ORMOC ... from P. 4


Time and time again, in the previous administration, I would harp on why we have such a grandiose City Hall in the midst of squatters. And this would probably have continued had Yolanda missed out Ormoc. With a billionaire foundation coming in to help, we are assured it would not be a runof-the-mill resettlement site for our informal settlers. However, I fear that if the Foundation thinks that everything is not rosy about the whole deal, they might back out.

The Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation came to Ormoc through the efforts of Rep. Lucy TorresGomez. They poured in more than 100-million to the city alone, as soon as they came in. They poured more in Tacloban and the neighboring towns. Because of the clamor, they expanded their relief operations to include badly hit towns in Leyte. On the way to Tacloban and Dulag on the Waray side, you see their makeshift schools and streamers containing messages from locals thanking them. For their entire relief effort, Xinhua News reports they spent almost P 1.3-billion.

faith so that we would understand the relation between glory and humility as we go through the different events of our life. Lets have a Christian sense of our beginnings which gives us the fundamentals of our dignity. Then lets cultivate a Christian sense of our history and end that involves the redemptive work of Christ so that we would know how this relation between glory and humility can be lived as we tackle the consequences of our sinfulness. This is how we can echo those humanly intriguing statements of St. Paul who said: God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified to me, and I to the world. (Gal 6,14) Its time that we do away with the idea that glory and humility are antithetical to each other, that is, that glory has nothing to do with humility, and that humility neither has anything to do with glory. They always work hand in hand. We have every reason to feel glorious and happy when we are humble, or even humbled. Email: roycimagala@gmail.com

Circle Of Life
by Carly Nasch
Life is a carousel. Always going forward, never going back. Existence is a hard thing to keep when you stop trying. To live a life, you must want to live. To want to live you must find a way. When all hope is lost you must stand tall. When all others retreat you must prevail. You are the conscious inside your head. You create your own destiny. Life is a very hard thing to keep when your life does not always go the way you plan. Fight for your life and the right to keep dreaming. If you feel you were gifted, share your gift. If you feel you were cursed, fix it. As you get older, your life becomes a challenge. Who are you? What do you want in life? What will you be? What is your purpose in life? If you worry, these things will turn into burdens. But if you hold on to them in the back of your mind, all of the answers will come in time. Life is a carousel, always going forward never going back. Look to the future not to the past.

and play at being God the creator.. Recalling the bitter debate over the law, the newly elected Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines president Archbishop Socrates Villegas said: We church leaders did not listen enough to the other side... We polarized the church. We polarized the country. Debates then reached the point when arguments became ugly, personal, not using reason anymore. We were using our emotions Even if (proponents of law) were saying things contrary to church teaching, we should never be lacking in charity. The task ahead is to march with the same cadence as Pope Francis. Did Filipino prelates signal that new balance in their latest conference statement: To Bring Glad Tidings to the Poor.? Here, the richest the richest 10 percent of the population earns 10 times more than the poorest 10 percent. It declares: We need to understand poverty as a scandal that all sectors perpetuate..., our responsibility for it in our individual lives and shared cultures.. Jesus call to love one another compels Christians to work for healing of all.

Meanwhile, Fran-Con Viaje Internationals admin said the P 8.88 per kilowatthour should serve as the reference point for future bills. On a related issue, electric consumers continue to complain about private contractors asking them for sums of money with the assurance that their neighborhoods would be prioritized for energization by the electric cooperative. Last February 16, one D. Tomoric, a member of the open page of LEYECO V wrote its admin, Sa Brgy.

What difference the commotion was all about. He even took several pictures of them with his cellular phone. Later, in an interview, he said he was touched that the children were still smiling gaily at him even as Yolandas effects were still visible in the neighborhood. The partys next stop was refreshments at a sugar plantation. Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez said Macht requested to be brought to one. She brought the guests to their familyowned field at Brgy. Sumangga where she served Macht fresh sugarcane and pineapple juice. She also challenged Macht and his manager to try tuba or local coconut wine, which they gamely took. Macht later told media it was like Sangria. The actor said he found the Philippines incredible. He also gave his commitment to does it makes kon public or private lines???

uit of Kananga, Leyte who said they were only asked P 300 each. She also claims that those who energized their houses ultimately were LEYECO V linemen which she thinks should not be paid anymore because they are salaried personnel. Max Torcinde, information manager of the coop, told the city council two weeks ago that the practice of private contractors working on restoring the posts and power lines have already been stopped. He said NEA received word that there were overpricing and instead of hastening up the power restoration, it was already delaying the work because the energization was done sporadically. He also added that NEA gave LEYECO V up to March 31, this year, to fully energize its service areas. To comply with the deadline, he said, they are now the ones directly dealing with the contractors so that all efforts are coordinated. By Lalaine M. Jimenea

He particularly praised Globes livelihood project, saying it was giving people hope for the future. He added that given a chance, hed like to come back to the Philippines once more. Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez, on the other hand, thanked Macht and Globe Telecoms for the help they were extending to Typhoon Yolanda victims, especially her constituents. Globes other interventions for Yolanda victims was to provide immediate relief assistance after the typhoon struck, followed by a shelter program. They distributed cell phones and load to selected benificiaries and put up free calls and wifi booths in strategic places. In Ormoc City, Globe sponsored the construction of 100 houses at P 15,000.00 each in Brgy. Tambulilid. They also had an education component, distributing educational supplies to children and selected schools. Last December, the Filipino rock band Bamboo was also in Tambulilid to distribute toys, in coordination with Globe. Cabreira said it was the companys way of paying back their clients. She added Globe has 35-million subscribers and growing. 95 to 98% of them are pre-paid, she said. After the typhoon, she said the number of subscribers dropped drastically maybe because they lost their cellphones but it has bounced back. We have more subscribers now than before the typhoon

BINAY ... from P. 1


The vice-president said he had the chance to observe the still unrepaired state of the government facilities when he walked around Ormoc City proper early in the morning. The veep had a handshaking activity at the public market. The countrys vice-president said this during the unveiling ceremony of the marker for the OCCCI-PagIbig subdivision development project for Yolanda victims. Pag-Ibig and the homegrown Metro-Ormoc City Credit and Multi-purpose Cooperative (OCCCI) recently inked a Memorandum of Agreement to develop the subdivision and finance 278 units under a calamity loan scheme which offers lower interest than the regular housing loan. With the vice-president were Pag-ibig CEO Atty. Darlene B. Berberabe and Rep. Sherwin Gatchalian of Valenzuela, who is reportedly one of Binays senatoriables. Binay did not play coy about his presidential plans on 2016, joking that hearing people say he could be the future president of the Philippines was music to his ears. Present to welcome Binay to Ormoc City during the affair were Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez, Mayor Edward Codilla and Vice-Mayor Leo Carmelo Locsin Jr, OCCCI CEO Jose Mosquite and chairman of the OCCCI board, Fr. Cornelio Amante. During the program, Mayor Edward Codilla welcomed the vice-president to Ormoc City. Rep. Gomez, on the other hand, thanked VP Binay for helping out Ormoc. She said Binay was one of few highranking government officials in the Aquino administration that is always accessible, all the time. Binay and Rep. Lucy T. Gomez are closely collaborating to develop low-cost housing through the National Housing Authority (NHA), the vice-president himself bared. Pag-Ibig, said CEO Atty. Darlene Berberabe, has set aside P 15-billion for its special program for Yolanda victims. The funds is accessible to (1) private-public partnerships with top developers in developing housing projects, (2) interest-free home rehabilitation/reconstruction loans for the first six months of the loan then at subsidized interest rates for the next 1.5 years, (3) six-month grace period for new calamity loans, and (4) six-month moratorium on amortization payments for existing housing loans as well as short term loans of affected members and (5) calamity loans at 5.95% per annum, and (6) assistance to claim insurance proceeds for damaged houses of existing housing loans.

CO & / OR JOHNDOE OR JANE DOE, Defendant- Mortgagors, x----------------------------------------/ COMPLAINT Plaintiff, by counsel, and unto this Honorable Court, respectfully states: ALLEGATIONS COMMON TO ALL CAUSES OF ACTION 1.1 Plaintiff ORMOC DYNOLENDERS CORPORATION is a corporation duly organized and existing under Philippines Laws, with capacity to sue and be sued, with business address at 2nd Floor, Bldg. 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.

Recently, UNFPA turned over to six towns and two cities the eRanger, also known as the emergency tricycle ambulance.

They can also be used for other types of emergencies and are equipped with sirens. The most recent of the recipients is Tanauan town. Mayor Pel Tecson said, We are really thankful to UNFPA. This will be part of our rehabilitation plan in strengthening our health programs in Tanauan. It is a big help for our health response to our barangays. Tanauan is one of six towns and two cities in Leyte that were given eRangers by the UNFPA. The other municipalities are Tolosa, Tanauan, Dulag, Kananga, Alang-Alang while the cities are Tacloban and Ormoc City.

Mercado warns of doing a Duterte against drug dealers


MAASIN CITY - In an effort to build strong cases against apprehended drug users and pushers so that it could withstand scrutiny of the Courts and lead to convictions, the pillars of justice in this province met recently through the initiative of Gov. Roger Mercado. Gathered for the Seminar on Investigation and Special Laws on Drugs held at Ampil Pensione here were Judges, Prosecutors, and Police Station Commanders from the 18 field units, one city, and the provincial PNP Command. Also present were Mayors and members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan. Gov. Mercado, in his message, minced no words in laying down his vision of a province that is free from the dangers wrought about by prohibited drugs. He warned that he would go to the extent of doing a Duterte, particularly for recidivist drug users and pushers who routinely go in and out of jails, their cases always dismissed by the Courts on mere technicalities. Mercados warning was addressed not just to civilians but more forcefully to law enforcement officers who were reportedly engaged in the illegal drug trade. The day-long lecture, discussion, and spirited open forum focused on how to properly conduct raids, handle evidence, investigations, and other related procedural matters so an air-tight case can be secured ensuring conviction,
