City govt gets P2.5M multipatient ambulance


CAUAYAN CITY, Isabela A P2.5 million multi-patient ambulance was recently acquired by the city government here for better health services, Mayor Bernard Faustino
Dy here said.
Dy said the multi-patient ambulance, which can transport four patients at a time, is
expected to enhance the citys disaster and emergency response capabilities.
This is considered economical since it can haul four patients at a time as compared to the single-patient ambulance, the mayor said, adding that more patients
needing medical services will be served simultaneously. Merlito G. Edale Jr.

Santiago City recently,
Cua said the province will
be adopting the Koreans
as the Quirinians brothers

It has become a
model of development,
economic miracle and one
of the most formidable
economic power of today.
We are happy that in
the years of your success,
you have not forgotten
your brothers, the Filipino
people, most especially
your brothers in Quirino.
We will forever cherish
your sincere support to
fight poverty, to protect
and to rehabilitate the
environment which is a
global concern. We look
forward
for
more
relationship, collaboration
and cultural ties with
you, the governor said.

Cua said referring to the
US$5 million grant for the
provinces Integrated
Agricultural Development
Project
which
was
implemented here to
reduce rural poverty and
restore the watershed

ecosystem
in the
province.
Cua recalled the
relationship of the
Philippines and Korea
years ago saying that as a
young boy, he had read
about the hardship of the
Korean People who were
under siege because of
Korean war and that the
Philippine government
dispatched a battalion of
soldiers to repel the
aggression
of
the
communist.
The governor also
lauded how South Korea
rose
from
the
shambles and now has the
most vibrant economy in
East Asia.

DA chief recommends
dredging of Cagayan River
TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan Agriculture Secretary
Emmanuel Piol will recommend to President Rodrigo
Duterte the immediate dredging of the Cagayan River here.
Based on what he saw during their aerial assessment
to determine the extent of Lawins damages, Piol said
should there be another typhoon that will hit region 2, lives
will really be at risk.
He said dredging should now be done because the
river is already silted.
Dredging could be the most possible solution to solve
the problem on perennial floods and bank erosions in many
communities along or near the Cagayan River, the Secretary said.
He recommended for the need of a separate authority
to manage the river where he cited Cagayan River Management Authority for that matter.
We are thankful that we have a President who had
high regard to agriculture, the secretary said. Gene V.

Caritas member countries pledge support for Lawin response


AT least eight Caritas Internationalis member-organizations
have pledged support for communities devastated by
supertyphoon Lawin (Haima), the National Secretariat for
Social Action (NASSA) or Caritas Philippines said Sunday.
Among Caritas organizations that have pledged their
support for NASSAs ongoing humanitarian efforts are
CAFOD (Caritas England and Wales), Caritas Belgium,
Caritas New Zealand, and Development and Peace (Caritas
Canada), NASSA said.
Caritas Espaola and Caritas Luxembourg also helped
in finalizing the response plans with NASSA, it added.
Earlier, assessment teams from the Catholic Relief Services (Caritas USA) were also deployed in Isabela, while
Cordaid (Caritas Netherlands) will join the rapid assessment mission on Monday.
NASSA said that Caritas member-organizations have
been partners of Caritas Philippines since the 1960s, helping the Philippine Catholic Church implement various development, advocacy and humanitarian programs.
One of the biggest humanitarian endeavors they have
helped support is the on-going Yolanda rehabilitation program, with assistance amounting to P4.6 billion so far,
NASSA said, adding that the endeavor has helped more
than 1.8 million Filipinos.
As always, our heartfelt thanks to the Caritas family
who worked side by side with us in bringing humanitarian
aid to Filipinos affected by strong typhoons since the time
of Typhoon Yolanda up to now, NASSA/Caritas Philippines Executive secretary Fr. Edwin Gariguez said.
Initially, the Philippine Catholic Church through
NASSA allocated P2 million from its emergency funds called
Alay Kapwa to support the on-going relief operations in
northern Luzon.
The Vatican-based Caritas Internationalis, the umbrella
organization of all Caritas worldwide, is currently headed
by Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle, the organizations first

Pack up and go, or come and invest?


THE question must be asked because many international
businessmen and prospective foreign investors do not now what
is really the policy of the Philippines on foreign investments.
The other week, just before he left for Tokyo for an official
visit to Japan, President Duterte declared that businessmen or
business who have been made uneasy by his inflammatory speech
and his war on drugs, should pack up and leave. That appeared to
close the door on foreign investors, especially Americans who tend
to be squeamish about human rights and the rule of law.
While the President was in Tokyo, his chief economic advisor,
Finance Secretary Carlos Domiguez, told a gathering of the
Japanese business community that the Duterte government has
crafted a business-friendly
socio-economic agenda that
reflects the Philippines
readiness to host foreign
investments and enable them
to do good business in the country.
Instead of allowing the confusing situation to fester, we believe
its imperative that the government hammer out quickly a coherent
and consistent policy on foreign investment. It should not let the
matter rest on the often whimsical and impulsive statements of
President Duterte.
It should emphatically declare that our country welcomes and
supports foreign investments as before.
The best way to do this is to place the policymaking in the
hands of Congress and the governments economic managers.
We should learn from the fact that Duterte issued the pack
up and leave statement without proper study, and in irritation
over the comments made by US assistant secretary of state Daniel
Russell about how the Presidents recent foreign policy
pronouncements have made many countries, not just the United
Sates, nervous about where our country is headed.
That the muddle has come at this time is unfortunate and
regrettable, because the Philippine economy is enjoying a spell of
stability and dynamism, a condition that is conducive for both
investments and trade. This should be a time to build on gains,
and not a time for retreat.
The good economic prognosis was matched by growing
international recognition of the strategic importance of the
Philippines in the Asia-Pacific, and its emergence as a new Asian
growth dynamo.

Time for yellows to respect the vote


LIKE it or not, the Charter change
(cha-cha) measure will be passed
by the House and may pass the
Senates okay too, depending on
whether the Senate will be voting
on this measure on a separate
Senate vote.
It will be more of the Senate
vote that will be the problem,
because for sure, the yellows in
the Senate are going to oppose
cha-cha. If they can get more

allies to go along with the


yellows.
The yellows there are four
of them at this time will, in all
probability, oppose the move,
mainly because they have their
yellow vice president who could
succeed President Rodrigo

How Japan can become our leading ally


TALK about role reversal. After
meeting
Japanese
Prime
Minister Shinzo Abe on October
26, visiting President Rodrigo
Duterte assured his host that we
will not abandon Japan which
he called special friend closer
than a brother.
Ponder again those words
from the leader of the
Philippines, conquered by the
Empire of Japan nearly 75 years
ago, and now one of the biggest
beneficiaries of Japanese trade,
aid and investment.
Why on earth must Duterte
tell Japan our biggest aid donor
that the Philippines would not
forsake it, as if it depended on us
for some crucial need?
Well, in fact, Japan did need
President Dutertes assurance of
continued Philippine support, if
not alliance.
Heres why: During his state
visit to China the week before
going to Tokyo, Duterte
announced separation from
the United States and alliance
with China and maybe Russia

against the world.


Imagine China and the
Philippines joining forces in the
waters between them, through
which most of Japans oil imports
pass, and you see why PM Abe
needed to be assured that such a
naval nightmare isnt the kind of
alliance Duterte had in mind.
Tokyo got that assurance in
the joint statement issued by
Duterte and Abe after their
meeting. Eight of the 15 points in
the communique touched on
maritime security issues, with
repeated
references
to
cooperation between Japan and
the Philippines.
Along with words came
action: The Philippines is getting
two large patrol boats and ten
other patrol vessels from Japan,
along
with
two
marine
surveillance planes, and training
for the Philippine Navys pilots
and enhancing its infrastructure.
Duterte
also
expressed
appreciation for Tokyos plan to
provide high-speed boats for antiturn to p. 8

Sige, lambatin pa mga buwaya sa Customs


GALIT si President Rodrigo
Duterte noong Martes nang
malaman na isang Customs official
ang sangkot sa corruption. Agad
niyang ipinag-utos na suspendehin
ang opisyal na umanoy deputy
commissioner for intelligence. Sabi
ni
Duterte,
gusto
niyang
suspendehin agad ang opisyal.
Kapag ayaw daw umalis ng opisyal,
siya na mismo ang magsasabi rito
na umalis na. Hindi naman
pinangalanan ni Duterte ang
opisyal. Sabi naman ni Finance Sec.
Carlos Dominguez na agad niyang
isasagawa ang pagsuspende sa
nasabing opisyal ng Customs at
mayroon na siyang nakahandang
ipapalit dito.
Sa inaugural speech ni
President Rodrigo Duterte noong
Hunyo 30, isa ang Customs sa mga
tanggapan na kanyang binalaan sa
mga nangyayaring corruption. Ang
iba pa ay ang Land Transportation
Office (LTO) at Bureau of Internal
Revenue (BIR). Aniya, bilang na

ang araw ng mga kurakot sa tatlong


tanggapang ito.
Nakapagtataka naman kung
bakit tahimik si Customs
Commissioner Nicanor Faeldon sa
isyu ng corruption at mas nauna pa
ang Presidente na mala-man ang
ginagawang katiwalian ng isang
opisyal doon. Kung tutuusin dapat
ang Customs Commissioner ang
dapat manguna sa paglilinis sa
tanggapan subalit kabaliktaran
sapagkat ang Presidente ang
gumagawa
nang
pagsibak.
Nagkamali ba si Duterte kay
Faeldon?
Mag-aanim na buwan na sa
Customs si Fael-don pero wala pa
siyang nahuhuling malalaking
isda na nagkakamal nang

years na rin si ribrib ang ngipen ng
Cauayan City.
Ayon sa ating
bubuwit.kinabukasan abay
laging gulat ng kaanak at maging
ang magulang ng babaeng 2 years
old, biglang isinugod sa ICU ang
pasyente at tila naghihingalo na
daw kaya laking gulat ng mga
nurses na nakatutok sa dengue
victim.
Bakit kanyo mataas ang
blood counts-platelets ayon sa
hawak na medical records ng mga
nurses na nagbabantay sa bata,
ang hindi maintindihan ng bantay
na nurses, bakit saksakan ng dami
ng itinurok na dextrose sa pasyente
at umuusok daw sa bilis ng patak
kumbaga fast drift meaning
saksakan ng bilis ang daloy ng
dextrose sa ugat ng bata dapat
timplado daw dok.
Ayon sa ating bubuwit.
Maging yung bantay na nurse eh
mukhang nakaukit sa kanyang
kaisipan bakit ganoon kabilis ang
pasok ng dextrose at panay ang

15/30. Magrereport lamang kung


15th at 30th sa kanilang supervisor
at solb na. Magwi-withdraw na sa
ATM ng suweldo na walang
kahirap-hirap.
May
mga
empleadong naka-assign daw sa
Surigao port pero kukuyakuyakoy sa kanilang condo.
Habang nagkakamal nang pera
ang mga buwaya sa Customs,
laging may shortfall sa revenue ang
ahensiya. Magpursigi sana ang
Customs
Commissioner
na
malambat ang mga buwaya sa
kanyang
tanggapan
para
magkaroon ng laman ang kaban ng
bayan.
PRES. DIGONG NAG-AADJUST NA
NAKAUSAP daw ni Presidente
Duterte si Lord at sinabihang
maglubay na sa pagmumura. Kung
ito man ay totoo o bunga ng
kanyang dila para gawing
dramatiko ang kanyang pagbabago,
magandang indikasyon pa rin na
sana ay magtuluy-tuloy. Sana.
Sana.
Sana ay nakikita na ng ating
Pangulo ang masamang epekto ng
katabilan ng kanyang hindi
marendahang ma-talas na dila.
Palibhasa ay napakataas ng pride
ni Duterte. Mataas pa sa kanyang
pagkatao. Wika nga bigger than
life. Kaya walang sino mang
puwedeng magdikta sa kanya
kung ano ang dapat at hindi dapat
gawin. Diyos lang. Kaya sinasabi
niya ngayon kinausap siya ng
Diyos. Sa palagay ko, ito ay bahagi
ng marahang adjustment ng
Pangulo para ang kanyang mga
ginagawa
at
sina-sabi
ay
maging more presidential.
Hindi lang ang pagmumura

ang dapat niyang bantayan sa


kanyang sarili kundi pati ang mga
binibitiwan niyang pahayag na
nagbibingit sa pagkawasak ng
ating ugnayang diplomatiko sa
ibang
bansa,
kagaya
ng
ma-ang-hang niyang pambabatikos
sa Amerika.
At bakit hindi ko sasabihing
mataas pa sa pagkatao niya ang
kanyang pride, kapag sinasabihan
siyang kulang sa statesmanship,
ang agad niyang sasabihin ay hindi
siya
tumakbo
para
maging statesman kundi
para
maging Pa-ngulo. Hindi ba niya
alam na ang pagiging statesman ay
isa
sa
mga
natatanging
kuwalipikasyon ng Pangulo at
kung wala ka nito, hindi ka
karapat-dapat mamuno sa bansa.
I believe that Duterte is sincere
and well-meaning ngunit hindi
niya puwedeng patakbuhin ang
bansa nang ayon lang sa inaakala
niyang tama. Sa mga ginagawa
niyang wala sa hulog, sinusunog
niya ang kanyang mga tulay na
maghahatid sa kanya sa tagumpay
ng pamumuno. Dahil sa katigasan
ng kanyang ulo, iniwanan na siya
ng
kanyang
nangungunang
tagasuporta na si dating Presidente
Ramos na nagbitiw sa kanyang
puwesto bilang special envoy to
China.
Sabagay, nangangalahati pa
lang siya sa unang taon ng kanyang
termino at hindi pa huli para siya
magbago ng estilo. Sana, sana lang,
making siya sa payo ng kanyang
mga ayudante at huwag patangay
sa kanyang ego dahil hindi lang
ang sarili niya ang dapat isipin
kundi ang kapakanan ng buong
bansa.

Si Cagayan Governor Manuel
Mamba na halos hindi na natutulog

kanyang kababayan na kaya
niyang mapabalik sa normal ang
buhay ng mga Cagayanos, lamang

sabay sabay ang hingi ng tulong.
Gamit pabahay, tulad ng yero,
kahoy at iba pang pangkabuhayan,
gayunman sa kakarampot na

administrasyon mukhang dapa ang
kanyang kaisipan kung paano niya
ito babalikatin.Kaya basta tulongtulong sabay panawagan sa

madaliin ang sagot sa validated

Ang Red Cross ni Chairman at

mga less fortunate na Cagayanos at

para-paraan at darating ang
ayudang para sa mga sinalanta at
para sa mga magbubukid para
muling bumangon ang mga
biktima ni Lawin.

Sen. Marcos brings


aid to Cagayan
TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan Senator Ferdinand
Bongbong Marcos, Jr. recently turned-over a number of
generator sets and water pumps to the severely-hit local
government units (LGUs) in this province.
Marcos said the generator sets and water pumps are
initial assistance of his office as he vowed to bring more
aid here and in other provinces severely affected by
Lawin.
What comes first in my mind when the super typhoon
hit the Northern Luzon is to give assistance for the affected victims, Marcos said, adding that he wants the
spirit of Solid North comes alive especially in times of
disasters.
He said his office is willing to extend its assistance to
any place in times of disasters or emergencies.
Meanwhile, Cagayan 3rd District Representative
Randolp S. Ting lauded the genuine concern and the immediate assistance provided by Marcos for Cagayanos to
immediately cope with their losses and rebuild their damaged resources. Gene V. Baquiran

CAMP MELCHOR F DELA CRUZ, Upi, Gamu, Isabela


The 77 th Infantry Battalion (Cadre) of the 5th Infantry
Division, Philippine Army hosted the culmination of the
CAA Basic Military Training Classes 8,9,10 and 11-2016
last October 28, 2016 with Colonel Bartolome Vicente O.
Bacarro as guest of honor and speaker held at Isabela Hall,
Headquarters 77th Infantry Battalion, Camp Melchor F. Dela
Cruz, Upi, Gamu, Isabela.
The CAA BMT Classes 8,9,10 and 11-2016 started
last September 15, 2016 with 34 students from Cagayan
province and 170 students from Apayao province. The said
training was spearheaded by the 77th IB under the leadership
of Lieutenant Colonel Jose Arn M. Real, Commanding
Officer and Captain Roberto S. Maduli, Training Officer,
77IB. The Basic Military Training conducted are for the
newly recruited Civilian Volunteers to fill-up the lacking
strength of CAFGU patrol bases in Apayao and Cagayan
provinces that are securing the barangays from all threats.
The CAA students went through forty-five (45) days
of rigorous basic military training to include disaster
response training, environmental protection and seminar
on waste management and disposal - as one of the mandates
of Brigadier General Paul T. Atal, D.P.A. AFP to all units
under 5ID to comply with Republic Act 9003 known as the
Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000 as the
modest contribution of 5ID in mitigating the harsh effect
of climate change.
The graduation ceremony were attended by Mayor
Rollie U. Guiano of Sta. Marcela, Apayao, families and
friends of the graduating students and 77th IB personnel.
NEVER DO. Gods plan will always be the salvation of mankind.that means His desire is for your
son, daughter, friend, co-worker, neighbor and
people around the world to come to Jesus.
And God doesnt desire for anyone to be
lostHes working through His Holy Spirit and us
as His messengers until Jesus returns to accomplish
that plan. This is exactly what Paul meant when he
writesGod might change my plansbut His will
always be Yes, in Christ. He is the Amen spoken to you by us. The word Amen means So be it.
The most important question I can end with is:
Are you and I living lives with the plan of God as
our goal?
Ignorant and unstable people distorted Pauls
message and attacked his lifeto their own destruction. Peter warns some believers will be misled by
this error and fall from their secure positionHis
challenge: Keep growing in grace. Keep growing in
the knowledge of Christ.
Youll never influence your family for Christ if
youre arguing about the ministers changing plans.
But isnt that what Satan does in the life of many
believers? Instead of our focus being that Jesus is the
Yes of salvation and the Amen of Gods unchanging plansomething happens that we dont
like or makes us unhappyand our energies become
focused on these non-essentials. This scared Paul, it
scared Peter and it scares me, because once this happens, restoring Jesus as the priority can only happen through a Holy Spirit revival.
...the end

TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan - The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), through the Quirino
District Engineering Office, recently completed the construction of Rain Water Collection System (RWCS) in 19
different schools in Quirino province.
District Engr. Marifel T. Andes said the recipients of
the RWCS were elementary and secondary schools in the
towns of Aglipay, Cabarroguis, Diffun, Maddela and
Nagtipunan.
She said the project collects rainwater through pipes
connected from the roofing of the school buildings of
which, the accumulated rainwater is distributed to toilets,
washroom and other utilities.
Andes said this is one of the innovative ways to maximize rainwater for sanitation purposes.
There are lots of things that we can do with rainwater. We can use it to clean comfort rooms or as simple as for
watering the plants. Eventually, this contributes in ensuring cleanliness in the schools, especially the health of the
faculty and students, she said.

DPWH deploys resources prior to disasters


BAYOMBONG, Nueva
Vizcaya A day before the
landfall of typhoons
Karen and Lawin here,
the Department of Public
Works and Highways
(DPWH) early deployment
of its heavy equipment has
been the major key in
unparalized flow of traffic
along the Maharlika highway for a long time.
Engineer Glen Miguel,
assistant district engineer
of DWPH second district
engineering office based in
Dupax del Sur town, said
the Maharlika highway

has been passable and accessible to all types of vehicles since the occurrence of Karen and
Lawin because of sustained clearing operations
and traffic management
especially along Sta. Fe
proper Dalton Pass section.
We encountered
felled trees and landslides
along the Maharlika highway and we focused our
priority concern here so
that flow of commuters will
not be stopped for a long
time, he said.

Miguel said the


Nueva Vizcaya-Benguet
Road also became their
second priority during the
clearing operations and it
was opened in a few hours
because of their heavy
equipment deployed earlier in the area.
There are areas
where one way traffic has
been felt because of traffic management and ongoing clearing efforts but
in general, no lengthy traffic has been felt by our
commuters, he said.
Miguel said the

Maharlika highway along


Diadi to Sta. Fe road section is now passable, including the Nueva Vizcaya
Benguet road while ongoing clearing operations
are also being undertaken
along secondary roads in
Kasibu town.
We also sent some
of our heavy equipment
in Cagayan to augment
clearing operation efforts
of concerned agencies,
after completing our priority road areas on landslide clearing, Miguel
added.

Prospective bidders/buyers may investigate


for themselves the title of said properties or encumbrances therein, if any there be.
All sealed bids must be submitted to the undersigned should not place for reason, shall be

terrorism activities.
The day after his meeting with Abe,
Duterte said he was amenable to joint patrols
with Japanese naval vessels in Philippine
territorial waters in the South China Sea.
Weeks before, he stopped joint patrols with
the US Navy.
So is Duterte moving to a closer
relationship, even an alliance, with Japan?
Lets take a close look at three strategic
factors.
Japan needs a strong Philippines
First, Japan needs a strong, independent
Philippines for regional security, especially
on the high seas. Otherwise, we can easily
be taken over by a big power hostile to Japan.
That would threaten vital sea lanes and
fishing waters in the South and East China
Seas and the Western Pacific. It would also
complicate the deployment of US forces from
Guam, Hawaii, Australia, and the Indian
Ocean, to defend Japan.
So Tokyo has every reason to build up
Philippine defense capabilities, especially air
and naval power needed to counter foreign
pressure and aggression, and ensure freedom
of navigation in surrounding waters.
Wont that provoke China in the same way
that the US-Philippines alliance did?
Maybe not. Despite historical animosities
with China, Japan is not a rival superpower,
and the Japan Self-Defense Forces (JSDF),
dwarfed by the Peoples Liberation Army
(PLA) and with no nuclear weapons, does not
pose a strategic threat.
Moreover, due to restrictions in Japans
peace constitution, the JSDF cannot deploy
massive forces in the Philippines, as the US
Seventh Fleet would under the Enhanced
Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA).
Since it cannot garrison the Philippines,
so to speak, Japan needs to build up our own
defense capabilities if we are to resist
aggression, especially the anti-access/area
denial weaponry urged by security experts.
By contrast, the US preferred to escalate
its naval and air assets in Philippine territory
and bases, with little urgency in providing

and developing the A2/AD gear we need, like


the marine surveillance planes now coming
from Japan.
The Philippines can secure Japanese
shipping
Even before the Philippines can attain
ample defense capabilities, it can already
help secure Japanese shipping even now, by
providing an alternative route skirting the
South China Sea and going through the
countrys archipelagic waters.
From the Malacca Strait and Singapore,
ships bound for Japan can sail into the Sulu
Sea, traverse the Visayas, and exit to the
Pacific Ocean, where they can be secured by
the US and Japanese navies operating out of
Guam and Japan.
To enable this alternative route via the
Philippine territorial sea, internationally
recognized under the UN Convention on the
Law of the Sea, Japan can help enhance port
and marine support facilities along the way,
so as to accommodate huge ocean-going
vessels. At present, most Philippine ports are
for domestic shipping only.
The Japan-Philippines economic synergy
The third strategic factor underpinningn
deeper Japan-Philippines relations is
economic synergy between ageing, workerdeficient Japan and populous, young
Philippines.
This symbiosis is partly seen in the influx
of nurses and caregivers into Japan, along
with growing ranks of Filipino workers in
various fields. This trend will become more
and more crucial as Japans population gets
even older, and its industries and its farms
find it harder and harder to get workers. Not
to mention willing hands for menial tasks.
In addition, Japanese industries should
find the Philippines a welcome alternative
to Malaysia, Thailand, and China, where
labor is getting most expensive and harder to
get. In addition, plants in the country would
be much closer to certain markets like the US,
Australia, and Japan itself. And Filipinos can
also address Japans fast-rising demand for
IT staff.
Add to the people factor the longstanding
bounties of Philippine agriculture, fishing,
and resources, and the economic synergy
further strengthens Japan-Philippine ties.
Yes, in our security and our economies,
we can indeed become closer than brothers.

have to oust Duterte unconstitutionally, may


fail, mainly because Duterte is much too
popular with the masses and even some in
the middle class, who are all rooting for him.
Duterte can easily do an Erdogan of
Turkey, when a segment of the military went
against him. All Erdogan did was to ask
people to go to the streets, which they did and
he not only stayed as Turkeys president, but
also obtained too much power and control, to
the point of jailing most of the mutineers and
firing people left and right, along with closing
down the media. He has become a dictator.
While there is a lot of opposition now
against Erdogan, he remains in control, which
is a bad thing for democracy.
This is likely to occur in the Philippines
under Duterte, should the yellows and their
allies try to unseat Duterte unconstitutionally.
On a defensive stance, Duterte will have no
choice but to declare martial law, which will
probably be granted by the House, or if need
be declared immediately, will be done
anyway by Duterte.
We have had too many democratically
elected Philippine presidents ousted through
unconstitutional means and worse, the
Supreme Court, in such instances, declares
such unconstitutional acts as constitutional,
to the extent of coming up with such
unconstitutional doctrines as constructive
resignation even when no such thing is
found in the Constitution.
It is time for the Philippines and its people
to stop all these undemocratic moves by the
elite against a president they dislike.
A better way is for the country to go for a
constitutional change through the cha-cha.
And this is the best time to do it, mainly
because Duterte has stated quite clearly that
all he wants is a constitutional change to
Federalism and that he will step down and

will not run for reelection. So in two years


time, Duterte will be out.
That way, the Filipinos can again vote for
another president or prime minister,
depending on whether the President will
retain important powers while the Parliament
will have a prime minister who will be head
of government.
And if the people no longer want the
prime minister to stay, then the
parliamentarians can pass a no confidence
vote to oust the head of government
constitutionally and legally, with new
elections called, should Parliament be
dissolved.
Of course, cha-cha can be a federal
system with a bicameral Congress, a copy of
America, which will probably be more
attuned to Filipinos who are generally not
familiar with the European parliamentary
system where the prime minister is the big
chief and with the president having hardly
any power at all.
There is the French model, where there
is a president who holds the powers of
defense, national security and other powers,
while in the parliamentary government, the
prime minister is the head of government and
governs through a Cabinet government.
It all depends on what kind of cha-cha the
people want in the end, and more
importantly, in an information campaign for
cha-cha, should the measure pass in Congress
and the Supreme Court, as it is almost certain
that there will be a challenge to cha-cha once
this is passed by Congress, there should be a
clear definition of what powers a president
and/or prime minister will have and what
power of the people can be had to remove a
president/prime minister in the event of
abuses or scandals.
It really is time for Filipinos to come of
age and embrace modern democracy. Coups
should be a thing of the past, and never again
should these yellow mobsters and their coups
ever be the norm in ousting presidents/

coup plotters, and all done to impose on the
Filipino people, an unelected president.
It is time for the yellows and those of like

Senator Loren Legardas Keynote Speech

2016 Philippine Local Governance Congress


ALLOW me first to recognize the champions and
advocates of local autonomy from the national
and local governments,
civil society, business,
academe, media and international development
partners, who are present
to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Local
Government Code (LGC).
Congratulations to
the Department of Interior and Local Government, under the leadership of Secretary Ismael
Mike Sueno, for convening the 2016 Local
Governance Congress in
partnership with the
Union of Local Authorities of the Philippines
(ULAP), led by Governor
Al Francis Bichara.
The future communities in the Philippines will
vastly differ from the
ones we live in today. As
we witness the 21st century unfold, our nation
faces a new set of technological, socioeconomic
and global challenges
that are more complex
than any of us have ever
experienced in our shared
history. They dramatically alter the way we live
in our communities, and
at stake is the quality of

life, not only of ours, but


of our children.
It is the responsibility of the government, especially local government
units (LGUs), to understand these challenges
and to take proactive
measures that will optimize our nations future
to plan, build and support sustainable communities.
We are a nation of
over 7,000 islands with diverse culture from more
than
a
hundred
ethnolinguistic groups
speaking different languages. How does the
State provide the services appropriate to the
needs of its diverse population? How can the State
effectively utilize its
peoples varied talents
and skills to contribute to
national growth? This is
precisely why the LGC
has been an important
tool for the State not only
to devolve the responsibility of governance to
LGUs but also to ensure
the participation of all
Filipinos in nation building.
I take note that we
are recognizing todays
awardees of the Lupong
Tagapamayapa Incen-

tives Award (LTIA) and


the Seal of Good Local
Governance (SGLC).
I commend the
lupong tagapamayapa for
promoting
the
k a t a r u n g a n g
pambarangay system and
settling disputes amicably in the barangays.
This has saved millions
of pesos that would have
been spent for litigation.
I likewise commend
the awardees of the Seal
of Good Local Governance, which has increased from 254 last
year to 306 this year,
marking an improvement
in the performance of
LGUs in the core and essential performance areas.
I understand it is not
easy to get the Seal of
Good Local Governance
because an LGU needs to
pass the three core componentsfinancial administration, disaster preparedness, and social protectionplus one of the
essential areasbusiness friendliness/ competitiveness, peace and
order, and environmental
management.
But I would like to
take the challenge further.
Allow me first to ask

the following questions


to our LGUs: are the
people in your respective
towns and provinces
happy? Is the ecological
integrity in your jurisdiction intact? Do you have
programs to preserve and
sustain your traditional
arts, crafts and industries? Are your communities resilient and sustainable to ensure that future
generations would still
enjoy the benefits of
abundant ecosystems?
Why do I ask these
questions? Because if we
look around us, this is the
unfortunate reality: for
every percentage rise in
our economic activity,
hectares of wondrous
and thriving biodiversity
are extracted from our
natural environment.
Economic gains from
exploiting and extracting
through unsustainable
mining, illegal logging,
overfishing and unabated
industrial production enter into statistical columns
for gain and growth. In
contrast, irreparable harm
and lasting damage are not
made part of the gain/loss
equation.
The skewed emphasis
on the gains has caused
government to fail on a

NV-DPWH sends heavy equipment to Cagayan, Isabela


BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya The Department of Public
Works and Highways (DPWH) here has sent its heavy
equipment in the provinces of Cagayan and Isabela to augment the existing resources of both local government units
and national government agencies in the on-going road
clearing operations.
Engineer Glen Miguel, assistant district chief of the
DPWH Second Engineering District Office said their district alone has sent several heavy equipment to augment
agencies concerned in the clearing operations along the
Cagayan-Apayao road.
We were informed earlier that our personnel in
Cagayan are faced with 10,000 cubic meters of debris cause
by landslides in these areas, he said.
Miguel said the immediate response is needed to
enable the entry of workers from the Cagayan Electric
Cooperative (CAGELCO) to undertake restoration efforts
of power.
He said only two loaders and two dumptrucks are
now left in their district to undertake clearing operations

along road sections in Kasibu town, one of the sources


of upland vegetables of the province.
We are expecting that clearing operations on our
secondary roads will be completed this week so that our
farmers can transport their products to the market,
Miguel said.
He also appealed to Novo Vizcayanos of their understanding and cooperation since their resources are focused on priority areas such as the Maharlika highway
during major typhoons and the Nueva Vizcaya-Benguet
road as second priority during clearing operations.
Miguel said their heavy equipment have been deployed in these areas even before the occurrence of typhoons Karen and Lawin.
Please understand our services and focus of attention during typhoons and other calamities. Anyway, local government units, especially those with heavy equipments can act and respond immediately in clearing landslides in their areas and we can replenish their fuel expenses later, he said.

policy imperativeto provide the necessary measures to enhance the restorative capacity of our
ecosystems. To nurture
nature, to bring our soil,
seas, forests and mountains back to health and vibrancy. To heal Mother
Earth.
It seems we have
forgotten that we are not
the only children of the
Earth. Our flora and fauna
are our brothers and sisters too and the planet is
our home. We are merely
stewards tasked to look
over all creation because
we are supposedly the
most intelligent of all species. Sadly, we have used
knowledge without wisdom.
The other day, Dr.
Saamdu Chetri, Executive
Director of Bhutans Gross
National Happiness (GNH)
Centre, lectured on how
Bhutan has successfully
incorporated the GNH in
its national development
policies and programs.
The thought behind
GNH is simple: incorporate
the status of the environment, good governance,
equitable and sustainable
socio-economic growth,
and the promotion and
preservation of culture
when measuring the
growth of countries. The
quality of life is just as important as the growth rates
that we have been working so hard to increase.
I have been urging
our government to adopt
the GNH concept and I
think this is possible if we
start in our communities.
My challenge, therefore, is for the DILG to look
into the four pillars of GNH
and see how it can be incorporated in the criteria
for the Seal of Local Good
Governance.
To our LGUs, my challenge is to ensure the
implementation of our
laws, especially our environmental laws that are
essential as we tread on
the path of resilient, inclusive and sustainable development.
I hope all LGUs
present here have already
submitted their Local Climate Change Action Plans
(LCCAP), have permanent
Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management
Office (LDRRMO), and
are fully implementing the
Ecological Solid Waste
Management (ESWM)

Law. It has been 15 years


since the ESWM law was
enacted but we have not
achieved even a 50% compliance rate among LGUs.
In the face of the climate crisiswhich affects
food, water, settlement,
jobs, livelihood, human
welfare, safety and security, poverty reduction,
and economic growth
we cannot and should not
stick to business as
usual in the way we pursue development.
We need to revisit
and rethink conventional
frameworks and strategies
for socioeconomic development. We should examine our respective development approaches and
ask these questions: How
can we further develop
our societies without
compromising the welfare
of generations to come?
How can we advance our
socioeconomic standards
without putting our
people at risk? How can
we realize our shared
goals on increasing the
quality of life and achieving sustainable development with greater certainty of success? Our
answers to these questions will redefine for us
the meaning of development.
As national and local
government leaders, we
have the moral responsibility to achieve genuine
development for the country and our communities.
Closest to the
people, local government
leaders have the privilege
to translate national policies, plans and programs
into concrete and visible
actions for the people.
Much is expected from
you by the people.
The people expect
good governance. The
people expect a better
life, a brighter future. Let
me assure you that there
is no better way to realize that aspiration than
planning rightly and pursuing development that
promotes equitable and
sustainable growth and
good care of the environment.
Delivering well in
these expectations are
legacies that you could
certainly be proud of and
for which the people will
surely appreciate and
long remember your service to them.
Thank you.

Isabela cops get addtl


patrol motorcycles
CITY OF ILAGAN,
Isabela At least eight additional patrol motorcycles will be awarded to
the Isabela Police Provincial Office (IPPO) here to
augment its existing patrol motorcycles.
Atty.
Constante
Foronda, Public Safety
Officer here, said the motorcycle units, which are
now available at their office, will be awarded to the
IPPO as soon as the po-

licemen finish their training on rescue and first


aid.
Foronda said there
were already 16 motorcycles turned over to the
IPPO which are already
deployed in the different
areas of the province.
He said the additional
motorcycle patrols will be
used for monitoring the
effects of calamities in the
IPPOs coverage areas.

DA assures farmers of
fast aid after typhoons
BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya The government is hastening the provision of various assistance for victims severely affected by previous typhoons Karen and
Lawin, Department of Agriculture (DA) officials here
said.
Celerina Miranda, DA provincial chief, said they have
already completed the report of damages caused by the
two typhoons right after their landfall since last week
which includes the proposed Rehabilitation Plan for the
affected farmers.
We had an overtime of work just to submit these
report requirements to top management so that immediate release of calamity assistance will also be released on
time, she said.
Miranda said in Nueva Vizcaya alone, typhoon
Karen has damaged more than 5,000 hectares of rice
plantations while typhoon Lawin also devastated more
than 6,500 hectares of the same crop.
We only have small damages on our corn crop during Karens fury but it rose to more than 709,000 hectares
when Lawin landed, she said.
On high value crops, Miranda said typhoon Karen
destroyed more than 168.7 hectares plantations in the
province while Lawin damaged more than 200 hectares.
Typhoon Lawin devastated those remaining plantations that typhoon Karen spared. With this, we are
encouraging our farmers to report any damage on their
crops no matter how small it is, Miranda said.
She also advised farmers to closely coordinate with
their Agricultural Extension Workers (AEWs) so that their
crop damages will be fully reported and validated.
They should also contact them regularly so that
they will be updated on our programs, projects and assistance later, Miranda said. Ben Moses Ebreo

Sulong Pilipinas taps Kalinga peacepact holders, civil society in anti-illegal drugs campaign
CITY OF TABUK, Kalinga Working on solutions to the
drug menace in the province
will not be left alone to law
enforcers but is now a partnership with Bodong
(peacepact) holders, civil
society and the academe.
This is the core strategy of Sulong Pilipinas of
the Duterte Administration
in its intensified campaign
against illegal drugs, corruption and other forms of
criminality in the country. It
involves local government
units and communities in
the campaign to improve
peace and order in their respective communities to
usher development.
Mayer Adong, provincial director of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG),

presented before members


of the Kapehan and Provincial Peace and Order Council, that one of the strategies
to achieve a 100 percent reduction in the number of
drug users in the province
is involving the active participation of Bodong holders. In the plan is the inclusion of information and education campaigns on illegal
drug during an upcoming
Bodong Summit.
Bodong is a bilateral
peacepact between two
sub-tribes and has a key
holder of responsibility to
enforce its provisions
(pagta) including at present
the prohibition on sale and
use of illegal drugs to and
among Bodong subjects.
There are more than 100
peacepact holders in

Kalinga.
Also tapped as partners in
the campaign
against drug abuse are civil
society organizations particularly the KalingaApayao Religious Sector
Association and Shalom
Kalinga, a moral recovery
group involved in the rehabilitation of drug users.

Bagamat may mga nagdaang bagyo sa ating lalawigan, nanatiling produktibo ang

inyong pamilya, pahayag ni Padilla sa selebrasyon ng Rural Improvement Club (RIC)

Ani Padilla, dapat maging aktibo ang mga RIC members upang maging katuwang ito
ng provincial government sa pagpapalaganap ng programang pangkaunlaran sa mga
barangay.
Ipinangako din ni Padilla na magbibigay ito ng libreng mga vegetable seeds upang
mapadami pa ang mga pananim at produktong gulay ng mga RIC members sa kanilang
barangay.
Inimbitahan din ni Padilla ang mga RIC members na gamitin ang serbisyo ng Nueva
Vizcaya Pasalubong Center (NVPC) upang maipakilala at mabenta ang mga produkto mula
sa mga barangay.
Ani Padilla, isa ito sa mga dahilan kung bakit naipatayo ang NVPC para sa mga

:Inspection sa mga bodega:

Isabela at Cauayan City sabay na naglabas ng Executive Order


ILAGAN CITY, Isabela - Magkasunod na nilagdaan nina Isabela Governor FaustinoBojie
Dy lll at City Mayor Bernard Faustino Dy ng Cauayan, Isabela ang isang Executive
Order na nag-aatas sa mga kinauukulan na busisiin at pag-aralan kung nasa tamang
gamit ang mga tumatayong bodega o mga gusali.
Batay sa nilagdaang Executive Order No. 28 ni Dy, binigyan diin ng gobernador na
marapat lamang na ligtas anumang oras ang kanyang mga kababayan sa kapahamakan..
Anya bukod sa katahimikan at kaligtasan ng lahat ng citizenry, layunin ng Executive
Order No. 28 na laging ligtas sa anumang impact ng pagkasira ng kalikasan at gusot na
sanhi ng disasters o kalamidad.
Nabanggit din ng gobernador ang masidhing kampanya ng gobyerno sa ilalim ng
Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte laban sa illegal drugs sa pamamagitan ng paglansag ng drug
den at shabu tiangge at drug laboratories sa buong bansa.
Layunin din ng EO # 28 ni Dy na mabuwag ang anumang umuusbong na clandestine shabu laboratory, dakpin ang lahat ng drug pushers at users sa ilalim ng Oplan
Tokhang at Double Barell, para hindi mauwi sa NARCO-STATE ang ating bansa.
Sa ilalim anya ng Section 465 ng Republic Act 7160 o Local Government Code of the

Philippines, nabiyayaan ng kapangyarihan ang isang Governor o local government unit


tulad ng Cauayan City na maglaan ng programa, plano at anumang official functions
para sa kapakanan at kabutihan ng mga sangkatauhan.
Kaalinsabay ng natuklasang mega shabu lab sa Cauayan City malapit sa Domestic Airport noong October 23, 2016, napilitan ang pamunuan ng probinsya na maglatag
ng mas mahigpit na panuntunan na busisiin ng mahigpit ang anumang tumatayo o
naitayong gusali o bodega.
Sa ilalim ng kautusan, marapat lamang na sumunod ang mga kinauukulan tulad ng
munisipyo at lungsod na bantayan ang anumang gusali na itinatayo kung ito ay ligtas
sa sunog at walang dapat lumabas na building permit at occupancy permit upang
matiyak na sinumang gagagmit at maninirahan ay malayo sa kapahamakan.
Dadaan sa masusing inspeksyon ang lahat ng gusali na kasama ang Local Chief
Executives, municipal o city engineer, BFP, PDEA at PNP.
Sa Cauayan City, ilang gusali na rin ang dumaan sa masusing inspection at marami
pang naghihintay na surprising bubusisiin ng Evaluation Team mula sa mga lgu sa
buong Isabela. The Patriot /dzRH news Joe Dasig
