Church firms up opposition against casino
BY ARMAND M. GALANG
CABANATUAN CITY –
Prodding the government
to instead focus on
strengthening values education and step up fight
against corruption and poverty, the Catholic Church
in Nueva Ecija maintained
its position against the
opening of a new casino
in San Leonardo town.
Armed with the pasto-
ral letter earlier issued by
the Ecclesiastical Province
of
Lingayen-Dagupan,
priest and lay presiders in
the Dioceses of Cabanatuan and San Jose De Nue-
va Ecija stressed during
Masses and bible services the ill effects of gambling in the community,
including the increase in

Peasant leader killed in Nueva Ecija
BY ARMAND GALANG
LAUR, Nueva Ecija – A 78year-old farmer leader who
has been advocating land
for the poor was killed right
in front of his family while
his young grandson who
tried to help him was also
shot by still unidentified
gunman in Barangay San
Isidro here Friday.
Senior Insp. Almario
Evaristo, town police
chief, identified the fatality as Pascual Guevarra,
head of the local agrarian
reform beneficiaries association (ARBA) and Alyansa ng mga Magbubukid
na Nagkakaisa 3100 (Almana 3100) and the
wounded victim as Ronnel Viloria,18.
Police has yet to finish
gathering information from
witnesses, Evaristo said.
Lilibeth Guevarra, 30,
the victim’s daughter, said
her father was repairing
their kitchen, which is de-
tached from the main
house, when the suspect
suddenly arrived and without any word pumped a
hand gun on the victim’s
breast.
“When we saw our father fell on the ground,
Ronnel and I grabbed the
gunman but he shot my
nephew, too,” Lilibeth said.
The gunman then
rushed to a motorcycle
where his companion was
waiting.
Guevarra died on the
spot while Viloria was
rushed to a local hospital.
Guervarra’s wife, 76year-old Lolita said she
could not think of any reason why her husband
should die this way.
“Sobrang karahasan
ang inabot na yan,” she
said. She was inside their
room when she heard two
gunshots from the kitchen.

ay tumutulong siya sa kapwa niya mahirap,” lamented the widow as she cried
for justice.
Almana 3100 was created a few years back to
thwart the effort of the Philippine Army to recall from
the farming residents
3,100 hectares of several
villages, including Barangay San Isidro where the
Guevarras reside.
The lands where originally intended for the victims of Mt. Pinatubo eruption in 1991 based on a
proclamation issued by
then Pres. Corazon Aquino. But since no Mt. Pinatubo victims decided to
settle there, Guevarra’s
group claimed that the
proclamation provided issuance of the parcels to
farmers actually occupying or cultivating them,
supposedly as secondary
beneficiaries.
The widow, however,
said she believed the issue was already settled.
Evaristo said land dispute with somebody could
be one of the possible
motives of the killing.

Alvarez said that in the recent years,
“thousands of metric tons of smuggled
onions from China and India aboard 40footer container vans were intercepted
at the Manila International Container
Port (MICP), South Harbor including the
ports in Subic and Batangas but ultimately the onions found their way to
Divisoria and other public markets in the
country.”
“This unabated smuggling and dumping of sub-standard onions did not pass
quarantine and phyto-sanitary inspection
for their harmful pests residues and they
are blamed by local farmers for the abnormally depressed price of onions that
deprive them of profits from their hard labor,” he said.
“We don’t want to suffer the fate of
farmers of garlic and ginger who have almost been totally wiped out by smug-
gled garlic and ginger from China. Otherwise, we probably be compelled to go to
the mountains out of desperation,” he
added.
Alvarez said UGAT and other members of farmers’ groups support the President in the appointment of Alcala whom
they described as “a farmer himself and
former governor of Quezon with a proventrack record of incorruptibility.”
“Alcala understands that the livelihood
of farmers is the backbone of our economy,” he added.
“We believe Alcala will stop anomalies and selling of import permits at the
BPI in collusion with corrupt officials of
the Customs bureau. We think Alcala will
be able to dismantle untouchable smugglers of onions, vegetables, garlic, ginder
and other agricultural products,” he also
said.

‰ Alvarado tells workers to ‘always wear a
smile when serving the people’
BY DINO BALABO
MALOLOS CITY—Top
vacant positions at the
Bulacan provincial capitol has been filled, Governor Wilhelmino Alvarado announced on Monday.
However, hundreds of
lower positions remained
to be filled up since the
expiration of the seven
day extension for contract workers at the capitol last July 7.
Among the positions
filled up were the Provincial Administrator, Chief
of Staff, Provincial Public
Affairs Officer (PPAO),
General Services Office,
Provincial Engineer’s Office, and the Arts and
Culture Officer.
Appointed as new
Provincial Administrator
was Jim Valerio, the chief
of staff of former Rep.
Lorna Silverio of the third
district of Bulacan since
2002.
Valerio also served as
the secretary of the Sangguniang Bayan of Bocaue
from 1998 to 2001.
For the chief of staff
position, Gov. Alvarado
announced the official appointment of Cesar Villanueva, his former chief of
staff while serving as vice
governor of the province
from 2007 to 2010.
Villanueva came from
Hagonoy town where he
also served as a municipal councilor for three consecutive terms, from 1998
to 2007.
Alvarado also appointed Maricel Cruz as head
of PPAO, while Marina
Sarmiento assumed the
post of the GSO chief.
For the provincial engineer’s office, Nestor Hernandez was appointed officer in charge, while Chief
Inspector Dan Orendain
was appointed head of the
capitol’s Civil Security
Unit.
Retired Air Force Lt.
Col. Pepito Plamenco assumed the position of Provincial Jail Warden which
was left vacant after Adelio Asuncion was sacked
with the discovery of 200
grams of shabu inside the
provincial jail.
For the Arts and Culture Officer, Eliseo Del
Cruz is set to replace Armand Sta. Ana, but no official announcement has
been issued, along the
position of provincial legal
officer where Atty. Bernar
Fajardo is said to be on
top of the short list.
As this developed, Alvarado announced that
they are now accepting
applications for nurses
position in the provincial
health office.
He said that other applications for other positions in the capitol are being carefully screened.
Alvarado told capitol
employees on Monday to
always wear a smile when
serving the Bulakenyos.

Rev. Fr. Sedfrey Calderon of the St. Nicholas
of Tolentine, one of the biggest parishes in the province, would not cite numbers but said a dramatic
increase in suicide cases
has been reported in Las
Vegas when casinos were
established there.
“Sa casino, ang nanalo lamang talaga ya ang
mga nagpapatakbo nito,”
said the priest in a Mass
recently.
“Ang pagbubukas ng
karagdagang mga casino
ay tiyak na magbibigay
daan pa sa mas malubhang katiwalian at kahirapan sa pamilya ng mga
nagsusugal,” parts of the
pastoral letter signed Archbishop Socrates Villegas
of Lingayen-DagupanArchdiocese, Bishops Sofronio Bancud of Cabanatuan, Mylo Hubert Vergara of
San Jose City, Jacinto
Mendoza of Urdaneta,
Marlo Peralta of Alaminos
and Artemio Rillera of San
Fernando, La Union and
Auxiliary Bishop Renato
Mayugba of Lingayen, all
of the Ecclesiastical Metropolitan Province of Lingayen, Dagupan.
The Knights of Columbus, a Catholic-family organization, readily rallied
behind the drive saying the
group which has council in
practically every parish
area stands to promote
family values.
Ruel Tecson, master of
the four degree, said they
will bring the campaign
down to their members.
“The Church said
these casinos will destroy
families and values...that
is true,” said Tecson
which has jurisdiction
over several Luzon provinces, including Nueva
Ecija and the rest of Central Luzon.
The Catholic bishops
expressed belief that the
livelihood initiatives undertaken by President Benigno Aquino III’s mother, the
late chief executive Corazon Aquino. These include
micro financing, which
they said will do best to
improve the lives of the
poor Filipinos. “Such program continues to grow in
many parts of Luzon.”
The Church also opposes building casinos in
Urdaneta, Pangasinan.
Fr. Calderon also noted an apparent irregularity in the construction of
the
casino building along
Diversion, Maharlika Highway, San Leonardo which
is almost finished but has
no billboard to indicate the
purpose of the building, as
well as the issuance of
permit.
Gov. Aurelio Umali, on
his part, said he himself
opposed the establishment of casinos when he
was a congressman. But
he said that he have to respect approved actions of
his predecessor. “It was
approved by the previous
administration and I have
to respect it,” he said in
an interview.
The bishops, in the
same pastoral letter, said
they are willing to cooperate with the government in
its fight against corruption
and poverty.
MALOLOS CITY—Ikinakasa na ng gobyerno
ang pagsasagawa ng cloud

madagdagan ang paubos
na tubig sa Angat Dam na
matatagpuan sa Norzagaray, Bulacan.
Ito ay matapos atasan
ng Department of Agriculture (DA) ang National Irrigation Administration (NIA)
na makipag-ugnayan sa
Bureau of Soils and Water
Management (BSWM),
ang ahensiya ng gobyerno
na nagsasagawa ng nasabing operasyon.
Ipinahayag din ng National Water Resources
Board (NWRB) na inirekomenda ng kanilang technical working group na magbayad sa gastos sa cloud
seeding ay ang Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS).
Ayon kay Dr. Redentor
Gatus, direktor ng DA sa
Central Luzon, noon pang
isang linggo niya inatasan
ang NIA at anumang araw
ay maari itong masimulan.
Gayunpaman, nilinaw
niya na ang pagsasagawa
ng cloud seeding ay nakadepende sa pagkakaroon ng makapal na ulap
sa himpapawid.
“The BSWM have spot-
ters near Angat Dam, at
kung may seedable clouds,
they can immediately start
the operations,” ani Gatus.
Para naman sa technical working group ng
NWRB, ang gastos sa
cloud seeding operations
ay dapat lamang sagutin
ng MWSS.
Sinabi ni Vicente Paragas, executive director ng
NWRB, na inirekomenda
ng technical working group
(TWG) ng NWRB na dapat samantalahin ang
pagkakaroon ng makapal
na ulap upang makapagsagawa ng cloud seeding.

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – The Union
of Growers and Traders of Onions of the
Philippines (UGAT) lauded yesterday
Pres. Aquino’s appointment of Proceso
Alcala as secretary of the Department of
Agriculture (DA).
UGAT earlier appealed to Alcala
against onion smuggling that has already
allegedly already displaced some
500,000 families during the Arroyo administration.
UGAT founding president Magtanggol
Alvarez said “we believe he (Alcala) will
succeed where his predecessors failed,
particularly in ending corruption and irregularities in the issuance of import permits by the Bureau of Plant Industry (BPI)
in collusion with people from the Bureau
of Customs (BoC),” he said.
“Onion and vegetable farmers in Central and Northern Luzon are optimistic that
Alcala will protect the interests of local
farmers and adopt an iron-fist in dealing
with big-time smugglers who have been
blamed for destroying the livelihood of
more than 500,000 onion farmers and
their families nationwide,” he said in an
interview.
Alvarez said his group as well as other vegetable farmers all over Luzon and
the Ilocos region “are hopeful that Alcala
will be our ally in fighting the well-entrenched smugglers and corrupt Customs
officials.”
“These smugglers and Customs officials are incurable pests killing the
onion industry,” said Alvarez who hails
from Bonganbon, Nueva Ecija which
is dubbed as the country’s onion basket.

Good governance
becomes Jimmy
“THE CITY of San Fernando has been making
achievements in good governance through the
leadership of Mayor Oscar Rodriguez. What we want
to do now is to cascade good government practices
down to the barangay level.”
So spoke Councilor Jimmy Lazatin in assuming
the chairmanship of the city council committee on
good governance and ethics.
Lazatin defines a “truly efficient, corruption-free,
responsive and good governance” as the “barometer
of peace, unity and progress in any community.”
Hence, the requisite of imbibing its practice in all
levels of government, drawing in the active
participation of all sectors of the community.
Towards that end, Lazatin will be pushing for
extensive and intensive training programs on good
governance practices in partnership with the
Department of Interior and Local Government as well
as other good governance advocacy bodies.
Lazatin said these training interventions will go a
long way in helping the stakeholders in government
“to choose and easily adopt, replicate, and expand
relevant and possible local governance models and
practices.”
“Good governance should be a way of life of
government officials and we hope to achieve
significant headway in the campaign this term.” So
goes the mantra of the emerging poster boy of good
governance in the City of San Fernando.

In your face, Oca

A NISSAN Patrol sports utility vehicle was carjacked
by five armed men right infront of the house of its
owner at St. Jude Village in the City of San Fernando
early dawn Tuesday last week.
Also taken from the victims was a bag containing
some P587,000 in cash and jewelry.
Just your usual carjacking-with-heist case there.
Were not for the fact that St. Jude Village has a rather
strict security process at its only gate, and its being
the early morning walking area of the Honorable
Oscar S. Rodriguez, the village barely 200 steaps
from his house.
So what is happening in your backyard, Mister
Mayor?
To use the favorite expression of the venerable
veteran journalist Rizal Policarpio: “Ito’y isang
mariing sampal sa mukha mo Mayor Oca.”

The looming
water crisis
IN 1991, as acting mayor of Angeles City, Ed Pamintuan summoned
the power of the Angeleños as a people to save themselves and
their city from the ravages of the Mount Pinatubo eruptions.
Some 25,000 residents responded and trooped to the Abacan
River, with picks and shovels, many with their bare hands, to pack
the eroding banks with over 250,000 protective sandbags.
Thus the acclaimed “Pala mo, Buhay Ko” was entered in the
city lore and won for the local chapter of the Jaycees an international
award.
It did not matter that the toils and privations of the 25,000
residents for nearly a day was totally obliterated in just one lahar
swoop that lasted no more than ten minutes.
Over the weekend, Mayor Ed Pamintuan again invoked people
power to save the city from mounting garbage.
“BY MEANS of water,” says the Koran, “we give life to everything.”
But the life-giving fresh water is soon to vanish. “Water, water
everywhere,” wrote Samuel Taylor Coleridge in The Rime of the
Ancient Mariner, “but not a drop to drink.”
Today, the world is at a critical crossroads over water. Water
supplies and water-dependent resources are declining as the world’s
population increases. Demands for water in many areas exceed
supplies.
“There is no water on earth now than there was 2,000 years
ago,” notes the US National Wildlife Federation, which has been
working for years to protect water resources not only in the United
States but throughout the world as well. “This limited supply of
freshwater must meet the needs of a human population that has
tripled in the last century and continues to grow at almost 80 million
people per year.”
The Philippines is a case in point. Demographers claim that
with an annual population rate of 2 percent to 2.3 percent, the
country would be facing a water shortage by 2025. In 2007, the
country was home to 87.9 million Filipinos. By 2015, the population
is seen to reach around 101 million, according to a World Bank
report.
In some sort of a sorry-state-of-the-city
address, Pamintuan declared: “The previous
administration created its own version of Smokey
Mountain near the Pampang Market and Ospital
ning Angeles. Just imagine the threat it poses to
our constituents’ health as well as its resulting
sanitary problems.
“We are still negotiating with Kalangitan
(sanitary landfill) on the P63 million debt of the
previous administration. But we have to do
something about this now. It poses serious health
and sanitation risks to Angeleños. There are so
many problems left by the past administration. I
call on all Angeleños na magtulungan tayo like
before and not leave it to the city government
alone.”
So has anyone responded to the mayor’s call?
One, Auxiliary Bishop Pablo Virgilio David,
rector of the Holy Rosary Church in the city has
signified his intention to join in the crusade for
cleanliness and health, said Pamintuan. “In fact,
Bishop Ambo will join us in a waste management
workshop soon. This will be a collaborative effort
of the good bishop and the city government.”
Bishop Ambo is convenor of the Save Sapang
Balen Creek seeking to bring back the city’s main
waterway to its pristine glory. At one time, the
bishop cast an anathema to the polluters of the
creek, one of the worst of these being the city
abattoir and a meat processing plant.
And more comers, again Pamintuan: “Because
we have no money as our budget for 2010 is
almost depleted, I requested some friends to help
us solve this growing problem. They responded
overwhelmingly by lending the city government
28 trucks with drivers. Ang sagot lang ng city dito
ay iyung diesel and the meals of the truck drivers.”
The volunteer truck brigade, Pamintuan said,
has so far made 261 trips but have barely made a
dent on the four-month-old mountain of trash.
Just asking, where did these trucks dump the
garbage collected from those 261 trips?
Has Kalangitan already opened its gates to
Angeles’ wastes, notwithstanding the unpaid
obligation of P63 million?
The news story on the issue did not say. But
only yesterday, I trailed a garbage mini-truck along
the circumferential road turning at dirt road in
Barangay Anunas. And just last Saturday, there
was some wisp of smoke again rising out of that
open dumpsite by the Subic-Clark-Tarlac
Expressway in the same barangay.
And at Don Bonifacio, on my way to Marquee
Mall early Monday, I noted a trash-laden padyaksikel negotiating the alleyway to Sitio Hadrian
where a mountain of garbage sits precariously by
a creek.
Which led me to believe that Pamintuan is off
the mark in calling for people power to solve the
city’s garbage problem.
If Bishop Ambo’s sumpa, with all the
injunctions it automatically carries did not the least
deter the riverbank dwellers from dumping their
wastes on the Sapang balen Creek, how much
less would Pamintuan’s call move the residents
to reform their garbage-dumping ways.
People power is not the right response here,
Mayor. Martial rule is.
TODAY IN HISTORY
Jerusalem captured in First Crusade
DURING THE First Crusade,
Christian knights from Europe
capture Jerusalem after seven
weeks of siege and begin massacring the city's Muslim and
Jewish population.
Beginning in the 11th century, Christians in Jerusalem
were increasingly persecuted
by the city's Islamic rulers, especially when control of the holy
city passed from the relatively
tolerant Egyptians to the Seljuk Turks in 1071. Late in the
century, Byzantine Emperor Alexius Comenus, also threatened by the Seljuk Turks, appealed to the West for aid. In
1095, Pope Urban II publicly
called for a crusade to aid Eastern Christians and recover the
holy lands. The response by
Western Europeans was immediate.
The first crusaders were actually undisciplined hordes of
French and German peasants
who met with little success.
One group, known as the "People's Crusade," reached as far
as Constantinople before being
annihilated by the Turks. In
1096, the main crusading force,
featuring some 4,000 mounted
knights and 25,000 infantry,
began to move east. Led by
Raymond of Toulouse, Godfrey
of Bouillon, Robert of Flanders,
and Bohemond of Otranto, the
army of Christian knights
crossed into Asia Minor in
1097.
In June, the crusaders captured the Turkish-held city of
Nicaea and then defeated a
massive army of Seljuk Turks
at Dorylaeum. From there, they
marched on to Antioch, located on the Orontes River below
Mount Silpius, and began a difficult six-month siege during
which they repulsed several attacks by Turkish relief armies.
Finally, early in the morning of
June 3, 1098, Bohemond persuaded a Turkish traitor to open
Antioch's Bridge Gate, and the
knights poured into the city. In
an orgy of killing, the Christians
massacred thousands of enemy soldiers and citizens, and
all but the city's fortified citadel
was taken. Later in the month,
a large Turkish army arrived to
attempt to regain the city, but
they too were defeated, and the
Antioch citadel surrendered to
the Europeans.
After resting and reorganizing for six months, the crusad-
ers set off for their ultimate goal,
Jerusalem. Their numbers were
now reduced to some 1,200 cavalry and 12,000 foot soldiers. On
June 7, 1099, the Christian
army reached the holy city, and
finding it heavily fortified, began
building three enormous siege
towers. By the night of July 13,
the towers were complete, and
the Christians began fighting
their way across Jerusalem's
walls. On July 14, Godfrey's
men were the first to penetrate
the defenses, and the Gate of
Saint Stephen was opened. The
rest of the knights and soldiers
then poured in, the city was captured, and tens of thousands of
its occupants were slaughtered.
The crusaders had achieved
their aims, and Jerusalem was
in Christian hands, but an
Egyptian army marched on the
holy city a few weeks later to
challenge their claim. The
Egyptians' defeat by the outnumbered Christians in August
ended Muslim resistance to the
Europeans for the time being,
and five small Christian states
were set up in the region under
the rule of the leaders of the
crusade.

Henrylito D. Tacio
The water demands – and shortages — of many
cities throughout the country are expanding. In a
study done by the Japan International Cooperation
Agency, nine major cities were listed as “watercritical areas.” These were Metro Manila, Metro
Cebu, Davao, Baguio, Angeles, Bacolod, Iloilo,
Cagayan de Oro and Zamboanga.
“The rapid urbanization of the Philippines, with
more than 2 million being added to the urban
population annually, is having a major impact on
water resources,” notes Asian Development Bank
in its Asian Water Development Outlook 2007.
In Metro Manila, for instance, residents often
complain of lack of water during the summer
months. In some parts of the metropolis, the water
supply situation reaches a vulnerable state that
the little amount water some residents get is not
enough even for emergency purposes like cooking
and drinking.
Sandra Postel, director of the Massachusettsbased Global Water Policy Project, believes water
crisis will be right along with climate change as a
future threat. More importantly, higher global
temperatures will worsen the current water
problems.
“Although the two are related, water has no
substitutes. We can transition away from coal
and oil to solar, wind and other renewable energy
sources. But there is no transitioning away from
water to something else,” said the head of the
group that seeks to save fresh water.
Only 2.5 percent of the water that covers over
70 percent of the earth’s surface is considered
fresh water. “Water is everywhere,” said an official
of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and
Cultural Organization. “In our bodies, in the air
we breathe, in the food we eat and in the
countryside around us. It’s part of our history and
our religions.”
“Water is the most precious asset on Earth,”
asserts Postel in The Last Oasis. “It is the basis
of life.” Next to air, water is the element most
necessary for survival. A normal adult is 60- to
70-percent water. A person can live without food
for almost two months, but without water only for
a few days.
A household of five needs at least 120 liters
per day to meet basic needs – for drinking, food
preparation, cooking and cleaning up, washing
and personal hygiene, laundry, house cleaning,
according to the Washington-based Worldwatch
Institute, a global environmental group.
A person needs at least 24 liters of water daily
or one liter per hour. Even when he breathes, he
still needs water. “Our lungs must be moist to
take in oxygen and excrete carbon dioxide,” wrote
Leroy Perry in a Reader’s Digest article. “It is
possible to lose half a liter of liquid each day just
by exhaling.”
“That the planet’s freshwater is consumed
profligately is beyond doubt, particularly in
agriculture, which accounts for 70 percent of all
water use. Getting more out of each drop of water
is imperative, for as the world’s population
increases, the demand for food soars,” wrote Fen
Montaigne in a report written for the National
Geographic.
“The link between water and food is strong,”
admits Lester Brown, president of the Washington-
based Earth Policy Institute. “We drink, in one
form or another, nearly 4 liters of water per day.
But the food we consume each day requires at
least 2,000 liters to produce, 500 times as much.”
Paradoxically, water shortage spawns a Jekylland-Hyde phenomenon: from life giver, water turns
into a pernicious killer. “Unlike the energy crisis,
the water crisis is life threatening,” commented
Dr. Klaus Toepfer when he was still the executive
director of the Nairobi-based United Nations
Environment Program.
The level of suffering and misery represented
by the statistics is almost beyond
comprehension. “As many as 76 million people mainly children – will die from preventable, waterrelated diseases by 2020 even if current United
Nations goals are reached,” said Dr. Peter H.
Gleick, director of the Pacific Institute for Studies
in Development, Environment and Security.
The UN has set a goal of 2015 for cutting in
half the number of people who can’t reach or afford
safe drinking water. “It is a grave moral
shortcoming that 1.2 billion people cannot drink
water without courting disease or death,” points
out The Last Oasis.
Providing clean water can save most of the
1.8 million children who die yearly from diarrhea,
the study claims. Installing a flush toilet in the
home increases a child’s chance by 59 percent
of celebrating his or her birthday. In the Philippines,
out of every 1,000 kids, 27 never make it to their
first birthday.
In industrialized countries like Sweden or
Japan, water-borne disease is a subject for history
books. But in the Philippines, it involves hospital
wards and morgues. “All of these diseases are
associated with our failure to provide clean water,”
deplored Dr. Gleick.
Today’s “crisis in water and sanitation is –
above all – a crisis of the poor,” claims Beyond
Scarcity: Power, Poverty and the Water Crisis,
published by the UN Development Program.
“People living in the slums of Jakarta, Manila,
Mumbai and Nairobi face shortages of clean water,”
it says. “(But) their neighbors in high income
suburbs… keep their lawns green and swimming
pools topped up. (The poor) pay five to ten times
more for water per unit than those in high-income
areas of their own cities.”
Patchy research indicates that the poorest
“spend more than 10% of their household income
on water.” In 24 provinces of the Philippines, one
of every five residents quaffs water from dubious
sources, according to the Philippine Human
Development Report.
“As water is an absolutely vital resource, at
the center of life itself, it is a key integrating factor
in the environment. Without sustainable water
management to ensure that there are sufficient
supplies of clean, safe water, the health of
ecosystems and those who depend on them,
especially people, suffer,” said Dr. Toepfer.
“Whiskey’s for drinkin’,” Mark Twain once
wrote. “But water is for fightin’ over.” Sir Crispin
Tickell, one of the organizers of the 1992 Earth
Summit in Rio de Janeiro, agreed. “The world has
got a very big water problem,” the former British
ambassador to the United Nations said. “It will be
the progenitor of more wars than oil.”

DI MALAYONG isa na namang parangal
Para kay Oca ang posibleng dumatal
Sa katayuhan niya kapagka nahalal
Siya bilang Pangulo ng kapisanan
Ng ‘League of City Mayors’ sa Pilipinas,
Na ang pagpili ay posibleng maganap
Nitong buwan ng Hulyo, sa kung saang dapat
Ganapin gaya ng mga nakalipas.
At ang mayor nga ng Siyudad San Fernando
Ang siyang napipisil na ikandidato
Sa pagka-Pangulo ni Noynoy Aquino,
Kaya malaki ang tsansa ng panalo
Ni mayor Oca sa nasabing halalan,
Lalo’t si Abalos at itong iba pang
Mga city mayors ay di na kailangang
Kumbinsihin para magbigay ng daan
Kay World Class City Mayor Oca Rodriguez
Upang ang korona bilang ‘chief of office’
Ng Liga, ay sa ating ‘Chief Executive’
Ng San Fernando ito pormal na ikapit.
Pagkat tunay naman ding karapat-dapat
Kay Mayor Oca ano pa mang ‘award’
Na kakambal ng kanyang pagiging sikat,
Bilang isang mahusay na ‘public servant;
At marahil, kaya siya ang posibleng
Ginusto ni P-Noy ay dahilan na rin
Sa puntong si Oca itong bukod tanging
Nanalong Liberal sa probinsya natin.
Bukod pa rito sa iba’t-ibang ‘award’
At karangalang kay Oca iginawad
Ng pandaigdigang kapisanang tanyag
Na kumikilala sa husay niya’t sipag
At pagiging tapat sa kanyang serbisyo
Bilang isang lider ng ating gobyerno,
Na handang maglingkod o isakripisyo
Ang sarili para sa ‘ting kapwa tao.
Na mabibilang mo sa ating daliri
Ang gaya ni Oca na mabuting uri,
Na di inuuna ang krus ng salapi,
Kundi ang posibleng isumbat ng budhi.
Hinog si Oca sa mga karanasang
Natutuhan nito sa serbisyong bayan,
At di nadungisan ang kanyang pangalan
Ng ni katuldok na uring kapintasan.
Kaya naman, hayan ang butihing mayor
Tass noo niyang hinaharap ngayon
Ang lahat, maging ang nasa oposisyon
Na may alinlangan at gustong magtanong.
Hinggil sa kung ano pa mang bagay-bagay
Na may kaugnayan sa panunungkulan,
Kasi nga’y wala siyang dapat itago riyan
Sa mata ng lahat, maging kanino man.
Kaya sa puntong yan, malaki ang ating

Sarah Geronimo inaapi ng sariling ina?
19 aircrafts fail to land at NAIA
DMIA, which was recently expanded at the cost of
some P300-million, has
enough space to accommodate passengers who
would be allowed by their
airlines to get out of their
aircraft and stretch their
legs at the passengers’
holding area at the terminal here while waiting for
flight clearance for their
aircraft.
Pena said, however,
that his office has requested airlines to inform the
DMIA management two
hours in advance for any
food service for their
stranded passengers.
“Our caterer, Miascor,
needs time to prepare food
for a significant number of
passengers even in such
emergency cases, so
we’d like airlines to assess
how long their aircraft
would probably be stranded and make catering reservations as early as possible,” he added.
Last July 3, aviation
authorities blamed pollution for poor visibility at the
NAIA. A total of 10 international flights were then
cancelled, 12 were diverted and 18 were delayed
due to poor visibility at the
NAIA. At least 26 domestic flights were also cancelled, 37 were diverted
and 26 were delayed.

Oca Rodriguez proved the

leadership in national development. He achieved
this through hard work

later as a law graduate),”
Mr. Aquino said midway
into his short speech.
“Sana mapasilbihan din
niya ang mas marami pang
Pilipino na nangangarap din
sa loob at labas ng Pampanga (I hope he can also
serve more Filipinos, they
who try to make their
dreams come true, within
and outside Pampanga),”
the President added.
In the program, Rodriguez was seated in between the President and
Budget Secretary Butch
Abad. Interior Secretary
Jesse Robredo and Liberal Party chair Manuel
“Mar” Roxas II were in the
same table.
Rodriguez figured out
again at the close of the
President’s speech.
“[Rodriguez] stood up
against martial rule. He
defended
human
rights…When I see him
and Manong Fred [Manila
Mayor Fred Lim] and
many of you, I know that
in the many problems we
have, there are always

said Mr. Aquino.
Local governments,
according to the President, are his administra-
tion’s partners in regaining
the trust of the people in
their government.
Former Finance Secretary Jesus Estanislao,
founder of the Institute for
Solidarity in Asia (ISA),
said the election of Rodriguez as LCP president
will open opportunities for
the expansion of the public governance system in
the country.
PGS, as advocated by
ISA, is a management system developed at the Harvard University’s School of
Business. PGS uses
scorecards to identify objectives and measures success. PGS also engages

sod is within the ambit of
existing laws, rules and
jurisprudence.
“That being the case,
the Commission rules that
Dr. Ma. Cheryl Paras-Tuazon’s designation as City
Health Officer effective July
2, 2007 has no basis in
fact and in law or jurisprudence. Thus, Esguerra
should be reinstated to his
position as City Health
Officer of Angeles City,”
added the decision.
“… the appeal of Dr.
Joven D. Esguerra is
GRANTED. Accordingly,
the assailed Order of the
Civil Service Commission
Regional Office No. III dated November 19, 2008 affirming earlier Decision
dated June 3, 2008 recalling the approval of appointment of Esguerra is hereby REVERSED and SET
ASIDE,” said the decision
signed by CSC Chairman
Francisco Duque III and
CSC commissioners Mary
Ann Mendoza and Cesar
Buenaflor.
Paras-Tuazon was appointed CHO by then May-
or Francis “Blueboy” Nepomuceno in 2007 in lieu of
Esquerra, who served for
nine years as CHO of
former Mayor and now
First District Rep. Carmelo “Tarzan” Lazatin.
Mayor Edgardo “Ed”
Pamintuan, who defeated
Nepomuceno in last May
elections, immediately reappointed Esquerra as
CHO earlier this month.
In an interview, Esquerra said he had “seen light
through the mayor (Pamintuan).” He added that he
was “definitely a victim of
politics” as appointee of
Lazatin during the time of
Nepomuceno.
Esquerra said the case
“should now rest” as he
wants to prioritize his task
as CHO of Pamintuan, a
political ally of Lazatin.
“We won’t be vindictive
like them,” said Esquerra,
adding that he had assigned Paras-Tuazon as
Rural Health Physician in
Barangay Sto. Domingo.
But Esquerra issued a
warning against Paras-Tuazon, saying he will not let
her disrupt the operation of
their health office.
REASON CITED
It could be recalled that
Paras-Tuazon filed a protest before the CSC-III
against Esquerra in 1999
docketed as Admin. Case
No. ND3-003 99. She alleged that Esquerra’s appointment failed to pass
through the Personnel
Selection Board (PSB).
“The absence of the
Personnel Selection/Promotion Board (PSB) during the period of the appointment of Dr. Joven D.
Esguerra, was due to the
fact that after the Local
Election in May 1998,
there has been a new administration and as a
consequence thereof,
there should be a reconstitution of the members
of the PSB, which is only
(sic) consequently reconstituted on February 28,
1999, by virtue of Resolution No. 2402, Series of
1999,” said the CSC in
explaining why Lazatin
had created an interim
PSB after the May 1998
elections to choose the
CHO of the city government then.
radio range (VOR) and instrumental landing system
(ILS) were damaged, although airport authorities
said the diversion of flights
that happened later were
not necessarily due to
these technical problems.
Pena said that DMIA’s
VOR and ILS are functioning well and that DMIA’s
radar is even more modern than that being used
at the NAIA.
Way back in 1994,
former Pres. Ramos issued an executive order
declaring the DMIA as the
country’s future international gateway, a declaration reiterated in 2004 by
former Pres. Arroyo.

NAKAKAAWA NAMAN pala si Sarah Geronimo. Maraming naglalabasang issues tungkol sa kanila ng kanyang ina. Yun bang kahit
na siya pa ang kumikita ng milak-milak na salapi para sa pamilya, ni hindi raw siya pinahahwak kahit isang kusing. Kumbaga, umaabot
pa sa puntong kailangang mangutang siya sa mga friends niya pag may bagay na gustong bilhin. Hindi puwedeng ganyan, hindi
puwedeng ganito, bawal yan, bawal yun. Kailangan laging trabaho lang, taping, shooting, personal apperances. Kahit na kaunting sarap
sa buhay, hindi na raw talaga nakatitikim si Sarah.
Alam ba nyong simula nang magkapangalan si Sarah, puro trabaho na lang ang dapat asikasuhin nito?
Di ba na-in love kay Rayver Cruz si Sarah ? Lihim lang daw na umabot ng two years.But when Sarah’s parents knew about it,
sapilitang binutata ang love story ng dalawa.
Sa kabila naman ng lahat di naman nagrerebelde si Sarah. Likas daw itong mabait na anak na may pangarap para sa kanyang
pamilya.
But did you know na may sariling pamamaraan ng pagrerebelde si Sarah? To the point na napagkakamalan na siyang aning-aning
ng mga tong nakasalamuha niya.
Minsan daw, sa isang show, pumasok sa CR si Sarah. Matagal na raw siya sa loob, di pa siya lumalabas. Kinatok daw siya ng
kanyang PA, pero ayaw rin. Thinking na may nangyayari dito sapilitang binuksan ang pinto.
Bumulaga raw si Sarah na nakangiti pa. Meaning, idinaan ni Sarah ang pagrerebelde sa pagtili.

Puwede bang umibig kay Aljur Abrenica???
“Why not, I find him very charming!” –RHIAN RAMOS
SOBRA ANG mga papuri ni Rhian Ramos kay Aljur Abrenica. Sila kasing dalawa ang magkatambal sa Romana
Santa ng GMA 7 na malapit nang simulan. Kumbaga, iniwan ni Aljur si Kris Bernal for Rhian.
In an interview, hindi napigilan ni Rhian na maglitanya ng mga papuri ang dalaga sa binata.
“Pinanonood ko sila ni Kris sa mga past series nila and I find Aljur very charming. Inggit na inggit nga ako kay
Kris dahil sobrang guwpo ni Aljur. I never thought na darating itong pagkakataong magsasama kami. As soon as
our project starts, araw-araw kaming magkakasama so I don’t discount the possiblity that we will be linked.
“Okey lang naman, Aljur is very guwapo, and I am sure marami pa siayng katangiang magugustuhan ko as
we will discover each other as our taping go along. I am sure, we will become very close”
“Ako naman, kung talagang iibig ako kay Aljur, alam kung hindi ako argabyado, ang lakas talaga ng dating
niya, pag pumasok siya sa isang room, hindi puwedeng di mo ibaling ang
attention mo sa kanya,” kinikilig na sabi pa ni Rhian Ramos.
So there!

worsened by humidity or
the absence of wind that
could have helped dissipate the haze.

PAGKATAPOS NG maraming horror flicks like
“Sukob” and Villa Estrella,” bida naman
sa“Mata” episode ng Cinco si Maja Salavador
kapareha ni Rayver Cruz of “Cinco.” Dahil
dito, she’s now called the Horror
Princess. How does she feel about it?
“Binigay nila sa’kin yung title, I
didn’t ask for it, so tatanggihan ko pa
ba? Pero si Ate Kris Aquino ang Horror
Queen, princess lang ako,”
humahalakhak pa niyang sabi.
She and Rayver used to be
members of a dance quartet. She was
paired with John Prats and Rayver with
Shaina Magdayao, but it’s John and
Shaina who became on. Did she ever have
any feelings for Rayver? “As friends, yes.
Among my male friends, I feel most
comfortable with him. Ganun kami ka-close.
But we ourselves, we ask, bakit kaya hindi
kami magka-developan. Eh, ganun siguro
talaga. Hindi mo madidiktahan ang puso mo.
But who knows? We’re not closing our
doors. Malay natin, may ma-develop pa
rin, lalo ngayon, ang ganda ng katawan
ni Rayver at not sobrang payat like
before. May height pa, so wala ka
nang hahanapin pa.”
Tomjboy ba si Maja Salvador?
What can she say about the rumor
linking her to Direk Malu Sevilla
who was also linked to a top actress
before? “Ano ba ‘yun?
Tinatawanan na lang ‘yun at
wala namang katotohanan.”
Fake lang ang
William-Yayo
separation
NAPAKARAMING BUTAS ng mga
statement ni Yayo Aguila tungkol sa
separation nila ni William Marinez nang
mag-guest itosa Paparazzi ng channel
5 last Sunday.
Sa ngalan ng ‘scoop’ umamin sa
publiko si Yayo na mag-iisang taon na
nilang paghihiwalay ni William
Martinez. Matagal na itong naging
laman ng mga blind item sa mga
showbiz featrures! Hindi kaya gusto
lang ni Yayo ng pansin upang kahit
papaano ay mabigyan siya ng mga tv
guestings at marami pang teleserye,
sineserye at boboserye para naman
magkapera. Oo raw, more than a year na
raw silang living away from each other,
pero dahil raw sa kanilang mga anak ay
halos araw-araw pa silang nagkikita ng
jowa. Hindi niya malinaw na naeksplika
ang tunay na dahilan. Parang gusto lang
niyang palabasin ng after 25 years nilang
pagsasama ni William ay nag-grow away
from each other sila.
As we say, maraming butas ang
revelation kaya walang naniniwala kay Yayo
Aguila.

starting at about 12:14
p.m. Thirteen aircraft on
international and domestic
flights, had landed by 1
p.m. amid notice that five
more were on their way.
“This is the fifth time
since last June that aircraft

to Clark,” he said.
Pena said pilots cited
“congestion” in NAIA as
reason for diverting to
Clark, but he added that
“visibility problems” might
have again occurred at the
Manila airport.
Only last July 3, a total of 31 international and
domestic aircraft also
landed here amid visibility
problems at the NAIA.
Some passengers were
reported to have disembarked from their aircraft
and proceeded to Manila
by bus from here, instead
of waiting for hours before
their aircraft could again fly
towards NAIA.
“Such cases are in the

buses at the DMIA to ferry
passengers to Manila,”
Pena said.

Provincial health
act needed – SP
8
CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – Pampanga Vice-Governor Joseller “Yeng” Guiao
said on Monday that the
Sangguniang Panlalawigan should enact a comprehensive provincial health
act which shall encompass
all the health requirements
and health needs of the
provincial populace.
Presiding over the SP’s
regular session, Guiao ordered that a working committee be formed in next
week’s session of the august body to study the
drafting of the said comprehensive act to include
all legislative health needs,
policies on all aspects of
hospital procedures including fees and other
health requirements, both
curative and preventive.
The Vice-Governor
said that the said act is in
line with Pampanga Governor Lilia Pineda’s desire
“to ensure the provision
and delivery of much needed health services to our
constituents”.
He added that it is fitting
if the SP could pass the
health act during the Governor’s term as it augurs well
with her priority agenda.
“I also hope that we
could pass this act during
my term,” he added.
Guiao said that the proposed ordinance of Board
Member Cris Garbo which
pertains to hospital policies and procedures and
proposed adoption of updated hospital fees be considered for inclusion in the
said provincial health act.
Garbo said that his proposal was a consolidated
effort of district and regional hospitals and others
concerned with said health
services.
The board member
said that at present our
hospitals in the province
are lagging behind other
hospitals in various areas
especially in terms of services and facilities.
Board Member Tarcicio
Halili, meanwhile, said that
rehabilitation of government hospitals in the province should take precedence over the increase of
hospital fees.
To this, Guiao commented that all this and
other pertinent issues
shall be discussed by the
working committee that
will be formed next week.
