Thus said Father Amadeo Alvero, media coordinator of the archdiocese which is home to more than 1.2 million Catholics, who was quick also to say that if there would be lay groups in the region which would come up with a list of candidates whom to vote or reject, they would support it. Theres no plan of our Archdiocese of Palo to make a list of candidates, whom the faithful would vote or not. But the lay faithful or group of lay faithful are free to make their to page 3

National govt to fund repair of road leading to Mahagnao


BURAUEN, Leyte The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is proposing a P336 million concreting project of the Burauen-Mahagnao Road to be funded by the national governments 2014 tourism infrastructure program. The proposed amount is nearly 10 times higher than this years allocation of P37.83 million that would pave about 1.8 kilometers of the remaining 10-kilometer critical road sections. There is a commitment from the national government to concrete the Burauen-Mahagnao Road until 2016 since this is national road. However, we want this to be included in the tourism infrastructure list so we can pave the road in just one year, said DPWH 2nd Leyte Engineering District chief Ma. Margarita Junia. The official said that concreting of the national road is very costly since they have to include drainage system, slope protection, and widen the existing rough road narrowed by road slips. Concreting is badly needed since the road status is beyond maintenance activities. We have been resurfacing the road to page 2

District Engineering Office, will be more active on serving Samareos at the 2nd DEO of Samar by continuing the projects left by Engineer Nestor Pagasartonga, who retired from service last February 8 of this year. As the new district engineer, I want to be more accountable and transparent to the people with regards to infrastructure projects by informing them in terms of implementation and accomplishment, Acosta said during an interview with Leyte Samar Daily Express. Acosta also said that they have already started conducting inspection in various projects of their office since he have been designated as district engineer last January 11 of this year.

I will be strict on conducting inspection to ensure that the implementation of our projects is on the right tract in order to gain and achieve the trust of the public, Acosta said. Acosta will be assisted by Engineer Ruben De los Reyes who has been the assistant district Engineer in Samar 2nd DEO for several years now.

The proposal was approved last week by the Department of Tourism and DPWH regional technical working group for presentation to the national committee and endorsement from the Regional Development Council. Its very hard for us to maneuver especially going

up to Mahagnao because of very bad road condition. In our village, a brand new motorcycle has to undergo repair within two to three months, said 35-year-old motorcycle driver Junie Daya, a resident of nearby village of Cansiboy. Mahagnao is just 22 kilometers from the town center of Burauen but the fare is P100 per passenger, which is double than the bus ride charge from the town to Tacloban City. Daya noted that number of tourists in Mahagnao

have been declining over the past years as road condition has gotten worse during rainy days. For 2013, the road was included in the tourism infrastructure list but fell short of some criteria set for prioritization considering its distance from Tacloban. Situated 1,200 meters above sea level and surrounded with Leytes natural wonders, the park is listed as one of the protected areas identified by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

PDEA calls for utmost vigilance in escorting drug inmates

the provincial jail vehicle carrying the three convicted Chinese detainees, Li Lan Yan, alias Jackson Dy; Wang Li Na; and Li Tian Hua, was blocked by about 20 heavily-armed men wearing ski masks on board two vans, who overpowered and disarmed the four jail guards. The armed men then seized the three Chinese drug suspects and escaped on a van. PDEA is confident that the countrys correctional security system is doing its functions. But the incident is a tell tale sign that we should take heightened security measures and cannot afford to let our guards down in the transportation of detainees. We are also hopeful that the police will eventually bring back the fugitives to the folds of the law, the PDEA chief added.

PhilMech to educate fish processors in EV


TACLOBAN CITY- The Department of Agriculture (DA) thru the Philippine Center for Postharvest Development and Mechanization (PhilMech) will inform and educate fish processors about using multi-commodity solar tunnel driers (MCSTD) in Eastern Visayas. DA-PhilMech Visayas Region Cluster Head Engineer Cesar Balajadia said that using MCSTD is one way of improving sanitary standards in the procedures of producing dried and smoked fish in our region. Balajadia stressed that thePhilMech developed MCSTD is a modification of the solar tunnel dryer (STD) which was developed by researchers of the Hohenheim University in Germany, Balajadia said. The original STD used an industrial blower to circulate air in the drying chamber. PhilMech modified the STD by replacing the industrial blower with an axial fan, and using locally-available materials to lower cost, Balajadia said. For dried fish, Balajadia said that using MCSTD will allow dried fish producers to reduce drying time by up to 25% and improve quality since the fish being dried are not exposed to the air. Fish dried by using MCTSD with attractive packaged can attract highend buyers in domestic and export market, Balajadia added. With this technology, the Department of Agriculture thru the PhilMechgathering support from Local Government Units (LGUs) will visit some fish processor organization in the region to informand educate themundertaking steps to improve sanitary standards in the procedures of producing dried and smoked fish.(RYAN

PDEA drafting plans to address concerns over children being used as drug couriers
TACLOBAN CITY The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) in Eastern Visayas is drafting plans to address concerns over the growing number of children being used as illegal drug couriers. Liza Baoy, PDEA-8 regional information officer said children aged 12 to 18 are being used by adults for criminal activities. In an effort to address this problem, PDEA, through our regional director Atty. Gil Pabilona is drafting a proposal to the Development Administration Committee (DAC) for endorsement to the Regional Development Council (RDC) on possible ways and means to address this problem, Baoy said. Baoy added the program will be in conjunction with the local Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). PDEA believes there is a trend of children used as drug mules in light of an incident involving a Grade 3 pupil in Bacolod City, who was unaware that she was carrying a sachet of shabu in her bag, Baoy said. In Eastern Visayas, however, PDEA had no official records of children ered a private group. They can also endorse. There is no prohibition there. Thats their right, Petalcorin said. We respect their decision. The Church people are also individuals who can exercise their right used as drug couriers but is not discounting the possibility that it is indeed happening. Several apprehensions for drug possession where children have been involved were observed. The children were used either as repositories of the drugs, or to deflect the suspicion of jail officials, Baoy said. Drug pushers are getting more brazen and creative by the day. They never cease to figure out ways to get away with their illicit transactions, even using innocent children as unwitting couriers, and public establishments like schools, to transport and sell illegal drugs, Baoy said. The agency also received similar reports that some pushers and drug traffickers even used babies and children to conceal dangerous drugs, usually hiding them inside a babys clothing. To protect childrens rights and prevent children from being used as couriers by drug syndicates, PDEA will be creating help desks in all regional offices that will cater solely to women and children. PDEA is also coordinating with local government units (LGUs) in implementing preventive education and community involvement for children. (REYAN

PRO-8 marks 27th EDSA People Power anniversary


CAMP KANGLEON, Palo, Leyte The Police Regional Office 8 (PRO8) under the leadership of Police Chief Superintendent Elmer Ragadio Soria remembered the heroism of the Filipinos as it joined the celebration of the 27th EDSA People Power Revolution in a simple yet meaningful commemoration on Monday morning during the Traditional Monday Flag Raising ceremony held at the PRO8 grandstand. Let us highlight the celebration with our commitment to work together for Pilipinas Natin, the country we all aspire for. I enjoined our personnel to understand how the EDSA revolution continues to shape the lives of the Filipinos today. Equally important, we want our police to protect our sovereignty and uphold freedom and justice at all times, Soria said in his message. With the theme, Pilipinas Natin, Abot Tanaw Na!, the nation once again looked back at the four-day historic event of 1986 in line with Presidential Proclamation No. 459 issued on August 16, 2012, that states the EDSA People Power Revolution, which restored and ushered political, social, and economic reforms in the country, serves as an inspiration to Filipinos everywhere as a nation and as a people. The Regional Director added that Filipinos must be able to understand this critical phase in our countrys history so that people will be able to generate ideas on how we can work together for a better Philippines. We, the police force is charting new directions in which we could have a responsible leadership, a responsible citizenry and a responsible people. Let us not fail our heroes, our to page 8

own list of candidates, Alvero said. But the Church will support any lay faithful group who will make such move of not voting candidates, he added. Archbishop John Du heads the archdiocese. Earlier, the diocese of Bacolod came up with its list of candidates whom should not be voted and whom should be elected. The hate list stemmed from the support of these candidates on the approval of the reproductive health bill which the Church strongly opposed. President Aquino

eventually signed the bill into law. In our Archdiocese, the faithful are asked to vote according to their informed conscience. The faithful knew that the Church has openly opposed the Reproductive Health Law. It is up now to the faithful if they would not vote the proponents of the RH Law, Alvero said. Commission on Elections Assistant Regional Director Veronico Petalcorin said that the Church has all the right to come up with their own list whether supporting or against certain candidates. The Church is consid-

of suffrage; they can vote and even be voted upon, the poll official added. Petalcorin also said that the act of the Church is not a violation on the principle of the separation on the state and the Church.

EDITORIAL

Once again, the same old warnings ring all through the nation. From time and again, candidates and traditional politicians are reminded under pain of punitive sanction of appropriate election law to strictly follow the rules and regulations, especially relative to campaign materials. Not just they are warned, because the Philippine National Police and the Armed Forces of the Philippines big bosses reiterate the prohibition on their uniformed men to engage in partisan politics. All these need not be retold every time election season comes if only Filipinos, or the real hard headed ones, know how to stick on the rules. Why would these things have to recur every three years in Philippine political history? Why should authorities have to make themselves appear like preachers and elders

constantly reminding the young generation on how to deport in certain circumstances? Is it because Filipinos are innately oblivious of their responsibilities or is it a sheer showing insensitivity and callousness? A better description to this is greed and selfpreservation. As the Filipino adage states, Ang taong nagigipit kahit sa patalim kumakapit. It is a vivid picture of how some citizens and traditional politicians have develop through their years in this kind of craft defying the law and escaping culpability without remorse. Philippine politics has over time become a den of people who simply fit in the description kulang sa pansin.

Responsible Parenthood: One of the Keys to Stability of Family Nations


Begetting children is primarily a parental responsibility. Rearing them is in the hands of a couple. Rearing means the parents are capable of providing them food, clothing, safe abode and education. A well-educated child becomes basically a good citizen, is adequately equipped with knowledge and talents needed preparations to face life on his own to support his needs and aspirations. The number of children should clearly be defined in the minds of the couple from start to marriage. The decision of both should be anchored on the reality of their union: then ability to raise them and the resources they have in the present and a calculated and intelligent forsight how these resources will grow and increase, as times goes by. These groups of couples

are few. Most of them belong to the upper middle and the wealthy happy and satisfied class.

perfection in this life, in our thoughts, words and deeds that cannot be improved further. So, lets just be game. Otherwise, we would all be saints here in this life, since there would be no more sin if we say things cannot be improved anymore. But the immediate, very obvious reality tells us otherwise. What is important is that we just try our best to conform our actions to our words and intentions, and our intentions conformed to Gods will. This is what is called consistency or integrity or unity of life, a goal that we have pursue everyday, making the relevant plans that consider our usual problems and difficulties in this regard and the means we need to precisely reach that goal. We need to remember that for us to be able to do this, we need to be with God, to have a certain intimacy with him where we can truly have a heartto-heart conversation with him. Thats when we can manage to be sincere and authentic. Lets remember that truthfulness is always a matter of having a relation with God, because God in the first place is the Truth cover in the camps of Crame and Aguinaldo along EDSA as the strong forces of the dictator flexed its muscle to attack the small forces inside the camps. There was tension gripping the nation as reports of the movement of troops to capture the defectors or defeat their forces in a bloodied confrontation broke. The Marcos forces have accurate intelligence information as to the actual strength of the forces they are about to confront in the camps where the defectors took cover. But all the planned attack against the defectors in Juan Ponce Enrile and Fidel Valdez Ramos got stalled as people blocked their armored tanks on that piece of land called EDSA. After a bloodless confrontation between the heavily armed forces of the dictator and the warm bodies bearing flowers and rosaries standing and kneeling firmly in prayer, the defectors came out of the holes from the camps along EDSA. The defectors jumped out of the camps to savor victory against the dictator. Before the crowd that shielded them from harm, Juan Ponce Enrile disclosed that the ambush against him was fake and was just used as the ultimate ground for Ferdinand Edralin Marcos to declare martial law. True, he was in under the dictatorial rule, he was in the camps during their defection from Marcos and he was in that stage of victory in that place called EDSA. In! really?

OK, lets take it easy. What I mean is that in spite of our best efforts, we continue to be haunted by our tendency to say one thing yet do another. Its a predicament we all are subject to. Hypocrisy and deception can become very attractive to us because they offer us some instant if false relief or convenience or advantage. Sometimes there are good reasons for playing a game similar to hypocrisy. Thats when we need to be discreet, tactful and prudent. This would not be hypocrisy. In other cases, it is simply malice and pure deception that we are playing. The latter is what we should try to avoid. Christs injunction to his disciples to do and observe all things the scribes and Pharisees were saying, but not to follow their example, because they

preach but they do not practice what they preach (cfr Mt 23,1-2), continues to be effective up to now. We need to exert continuing effort to avoid falling into this predicament. But, of course, given our weakened and wounded human condition, we cannot deny that sometimes, and even many times, we can fall into the ways of the scribes and Pharisees. Just the same, we can still get Gods good graces by doing the first part of the injunction, that is, to continue teaching and preaching the good news even if our behavior is not yet at par to what we are preaching. As long as we striving to close the gap between our words and our deeds, I suppose things would just be all right. After all, no matter how much we try, things can always be better. Theres no such state of

in a particular place and time. Their tarpaulins hang on walls, lamp posts and trees, where they do not belong and should not be by mandates of special laws. Another familiar vice is the use of popular songs with lyrics changed to fit in the campaign blitz of candidates. This they do in bold defiance of the prohibition and warning from the recording companies that produced the pop song. In spite of this brazen fact of violation, candidates promhimself, the creator of the universe and therefore of reality itself. We can never be truthful just by ourselves, that is, without God, no matter how much we profess to be honest. Especially in some difficult situations, when we are strongly tempted to twists facts and tell lies, it is important to be firmly convinced that it is better to abandon ourselves in the hands of God and tell the truth, no matter what it costs. Obviously, this abandoning ourselves in the hands of God to tell the truth should also go hand in hand with the requirements of tact and discretion, integral parts of charity. But we also have to make sure that our sense of tact and discretion is not actually a cover for cowardice and infidelity. It always pays to trust in God even as we do everything we can to be truthful. One anecdote that highlights this doctrine is about a father whose child was born with a heart condition. The doctors told him his son would not survive within the year if the baby would not be operated on. And even the operation could only give a 50-50 chance of survival. The father was in crisis. Poor and the bill would run to almost half a million pesos, he tried his best to look for the amount, but in the end, could not raise it. He just told the doctor he was abandoning the baby in the hands of God. He instead prayed and prayed. I asked him what happened to the baby. The man said, Father, my son is now 21 years old. He is not quite healthy, but he manages to study and do some work. He has never been a burden to us.

tions are oftentimes disregarded. So the vicious cycle rolls savagely making the country a place of rotten candidates. Save the case of the good ones, this pack of nasty traditional politicians puts the countrys election in bad taste. Be it understood, though. That Philippine politics is not per se awful. The bad and corrupt politicians make it so, thus should not be allowed to thrive lest Philippines will never be able to achieve a genuinely clean and honest election practices.

The Sower
Wednesday of the Second Week of Lent Jer 18:18-20 * Ps 31* Mt 20:17-28

THE REQUEST OF JAMES AND JOHN


As Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve [disciples] aside by themselves Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee approached him with her sons and did him homage, wishing to ask him for something. He said to her, What do you wish? She answered him, Command that these two sons of mine sit, one at your right and the other at your left, in your kingdom. Jesus said in reply, You do not know what you are asking. Can you drink the cup that I am going to drink? They said to him, We can. He replied, My cup you will indeed drink, but to sit at my right and at my left [, this] is not mine to give but is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father. When the ten heard this, they became indignant at the two brothers. But Jesus summoned them and said, You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and the great ones make their authority over them felt. But it shall not be so among you. Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you shall be your servant; whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave. Just so, the Son of man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.

In! really?

SACRIFICE AND SERVICE


Todays gospel brings us to the primary theme of Lent: our preparation for the mystery of the death and resurrection of Christ. But we still find ourselves (for we can always identify with the disciples, as well as with the Pharisees) in the toils of self-interest. Bad enough to find that it is the sons of Zebedee, two of his first disciples that are involved, but so are all twelve of them. The ten were indignant with the two brothers. The laws of group dynamics are patent. Their assessment of the egoism of the two is faultless, but they cant see, as Jesus does, that the beam of egoism is in their own eyes too. He has to reprove them all. The rewards of high places that all of them ate seeking have been allotted by his Father. They are not for him to offer. It is for him, the Son, the Beloved Servant, to give his life for all of them. Well may St. Paul write to the Philippians: Make your own that mind that was in Christ Jesus. Prayer-lines: GOD OUR FATHER, GIVE US THIS LENT SOME SHARE OF CHRISTS SELF-GIVING FOR THE SALVATION OF ALL. (Feed from the Tree of Life by Columba Breen, OSB, published by Paulines. Visit us at www.paulines .ph or at Paulines Media Center, Real St., Tacloban City, Tel. 321-3195) Sowers Thought: Do not cheat duty, even if you are alone. Do not deceive truth, either by lies or by hypocrisy. Do not defraud justice, having regard for your neighbors reputation, possessions and life. Blessed James Alberione, Founder of the Pauline Family

It is unfortunate that we have been captivated by the big event in that highway named EDSA so we lost sight of the essence of the long struggle. It is really inaccurate to celebrate the People Power Revolution as a mere EDSA incident. The portrait of opportunists who sneaked through the thick crowd that converged at EDSA just to grab the limelight at the hour of victory is simply revolting. Those who managed to be at center stage to be acclaimed heroes were in truth the cowards who holed themselves hiding in fear at the most dangerous moments. These are the people who defected from the dictator but instead of leading the people in confronting the enemy, they hid in fear and called on the people for protection, only to come out when the despot had flown away in defeat and claim credit as heroes of the peaceful revolution. The true spirit of that People Power Revolution is now being waylaid by the

very people who shamelessly grabbed power and the accolade of that historic event. It is indeed a catastrophic landslide of misfortunes to have Marcos allies who played vital roles in the enforcement of martial law under the conjugal dictatorship. After collaborating with the dictator Ferdinand Edralin Marcos in putting this country under martial law, then Defense Minister Juan Ponce Enrile defected loyalty to the opposition tandem of Cory Aquino and Doy Laurel. The decision to jump to the other fence appeared as a calculated move for self-preservation if not a long shot to regain vital post under a new administration. It would appear that the defection by Juan Ponce Enrile together with then Armed Forces of the Philippines Vice-Chief of Staff Fidel Valdez Ramos emboldened the Filipino masses who had massed at EDSA in protest of the sham results of the snap elections. But the undeniable fact is that the defectors took

Gothong Southern Shipping Lines continues to be one of the leading shipping companies in the local shipping industry. With reliable vessel schedules to and from four major cities in the Philippines using a fleet of young vessels and brand new facilities and equipments at very competitive rates, it is no surprise that GS customers continue to grow in numbers. Though the bulk of GS shipments are containerized cargoes, GS vessels have been used quite a few times to transport non-containerized cargoes either thru vessel chartering or as supplement cargo to any of its regular trade routes. Sometime back, GS was commissioned by DESCO Project Management to transfer Chevrons oil drilling machineries, including platforms and other related heavy equipments and trucks from their abandoned site in Aloquinsan Cebu to one of their drilling sites in Tabaco, Albay. The charter service, which took off from the port of Cebu and on to Aloguinsan to pick up the break bulk cargoes that were eventually discharged at the port of Tabaco, Albay took about 6

TACLOBAN CITY The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) is offering OFW-Dependent Scholarship Program (ODSP) to brothers, sisters, offsprings, relatives or the qualified or legal dependents of active Overseas Filipino Workers whose monthly salary is below US $400. The program offers financial assistance of P10,000 per semester or P20,000 per school year for those who would enroll in any 4-5 year baccalaureate course in any state colleges and universities or CHED-accredited schools. To avail of the scholarship program, the applicant must have not yet earned any college units, only High School graduates or graduating students not exceeding 21 years old, who are physically, mentally and morally fit shall be eligible to the program, said Alberto Peaflor, OWWA case officer. He added that the applicant should pass the exam, known as the Education for Development Scholarship Program (EDSP), in their respective city or town in Tacloban, Ormoc, Maasin, Catarman, Borongan and Naval. The program started last year November 2012 and will end on September 15, 2013 because they only limit the number of applicants. They only need 100 applicants here in Region 8 and they will submit the list of applicants to Manila with the number of examinees. The applicant has to maintain a grade of 80.

EDSA became the center stage of crucial events that took place within the four-day revolution that unfolded starting at about 6:30 o clock in the evening of February 22, 1986 when former defense secretary Juan Ponce Enrile and former AFP Vice Chief of Staff and ex-President Fidel Ramos held a press conference at Camp Aguinaldo, where they announced their resignation from their respective positions in Marcoss cabinet and were withdrawing support from his government until its culmination on February 25, 2013 or exactly 27 years ago today. This part of Philippine history gives Filipinos a strong sense of pride, especially that other nations had emulated the event, showing to the world the true power of democracy that was exhibited in EDSA

Leyeco II waits ERC directive for possible rate increase


TACLOBAN CITYThe Leyte II Electric Cooperative (Leyeco) II is awaiting confirmation from Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) for a possible power rate increase next month. The ERC had earlier ruled for a possible increase on the universal charge (UC) of P0.19 per kilowatt-hour. All electricity consumers are liable to pay this charge to their respective distribution utilities or to the grid operator for the directly-connected customers, which in turn shall remit all their collections to PSALM (Power Sector by its successful effort to oust a tyrant by a demonstration without tolerance for violence and bloodshed. (PINSP ROMUEL NAAssets and Liabilities Management) as administrator of the UC fund, the ERC decision read. For typical residential consumers with monthly electricity consumption of 200 kilowatt-hours, this translates to an additional P38.76 in their electricity bill. Leyeco II training and information officer Nia Navarrete said that they have not yet received any confirmation from the ERC on when this new round of power rate increase would take effect. Power rate increase depends on the power supplier who imposes the proposal and so far, Leyeco II is not affected by this power rate increase, she added. (JA-
