by Robert E. Roperos

BUTUAN CITY, July 23 (PIA) -- Vice Governor Santiago Cane of the province of Agusan del Sur recently lauded the gallantry and discipline practiced by the men and women of the 402nd Infantry (Stingers) Brigade.

During the 38th founding anniversary of the brigade, Cane pointed out that the gallantry of the soldiers headed by Col. Rodrigo T. Diapana is a noble act and needs to be commended.

Also, Cane said the soldiers of the brigade are well-disciplined, honorable and gentlemen.

“I have never heard since time immemorial that the troops in this brigade violated the mandates in the constitution… Since the time of Col. Carolina, then to Col. Gupana until now during the leadership of Col. Diapana, we never heard that the soldiers under this brigade abused civilians… They are truly the model soldiers that we are looking for,” he said.

The province’s second highest official added that the 402nd Brigade has demonstrated a good example of public servants. “They are in our province purposely to protect our lives, properties and to keep peace within our midst,” Cane said.

Cane further said, since time immemorial, all the Brigade Commanders of the 402nd IB leave their posts because they are promoted. “This means that the performance of this Brigade is outstanding,” he said.

Furthermore, Cane said the constituents of the province are very fortunate to have been chosen by the Armed Forces of the Philippines to establish the headquarters of the brigade because this leads to peace and security in the province.

“The provincial government is very thankful and we are in deed gratitude that the Armed Forces of the Philippines has chosen New Leyte, Awa as the site of the headquarters of the brigade which makes the area peaceful,” Cane said. (PIA-Caraga)

Cebuano News: Palasyo molusad sa publication on priority legislative measures ni Pangulong Aquino

ni Susil D. Ragas

SURIGAO CITY, July 23 (PIA) – Ang Malakanang mipagawas sa libro mahitungod sa top legislative measures ni Pangulong Benigno S. Aquino III nga maoy magsilbing giya sa iyang administrasyon alang sa nasod paingon ngadto sa pagkab-ot sa kauswagan ug kalamboan.

Ang maong publikasyon nga may titulong “Priority Legislative Measures of the President” volume 1 (July 2010 to June 2011), gisagop sa House of Representatives and the Senate isip ilang common legislative agenda alang sa Fifteenth Congress atol sa 111th Legislative Executive Development Advisory Council (LDAC) meeting.

Ang Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO), Presidential Legislative Liaison Office (PLLO) ug ang Bureau of Communications Services (BSC) nakigtambayayong sa kongreso ug sa mga nagkalain-laing ahensiya aron mapagawas ang maong publikasyon.

Ang maong libro nagtinguha sa pagpahibalo sa private sector, academe, local government units ug uban pang hingtungdan mahitungod sa unsay gihimo sa administrasyon kalabot na sa policy measures lakip usab ang panglantaw niini sa mosunod nga lima ka tuig nga panerbisyo.

“The goal is to inform, empower and involve the people in crafting landmark legislative measures that will be vital to support the country’s development and progress,” si PCOO Secretary Herminio “Sonny” Coloma miingon.

Maghatag kini og hamubong pagtuki kung unsay katuyoan sa mga balaodnon ngadto sa 16-point agenda in the social contract ug ang Philippine Development Plan sa 2011 ngadto 2016, dugang niya.

Usa ka tuig human ang Pangulong Aquino midawat sa iyang katungdan, siya wala makalimot sa iyang mga saad sa katawhan- nga iyang mugnaon ang feedback mechanism nga magtugot sa mga Pilipino gikan sa pinakaubos nga level nga mapaabot ang ilang mga kabalaka mahitungod sa gobyerno.

Human sa state-of-the-nation address (SONA) sa Pangulo sunod semana, ang PCCO mobisita sa nagkalain-laing mga probinsya aron mohimo og mga konsultasyon sa local government units (LGUs), private sector, non-government organizations (NGOs), academe ug uban pang mga hingtungdan aron pagkuha sa ilang feedback ug suporta alang sa pagduso niining mga prioridad nga mga balaodnon.

Kini nga mga balaodnon may kalabotan sa gihimong panaad nga social contract with the people sa Pangulo niadtong siya mikandidato pagka pangulo niaging tuig.

Ang mahinungdanong mga erya sa social contract naglakip na sa good governance, support for the poor, economic expansion ug job generation, peace ug stability, ug promotion of sustainable utilization of natural resources uban ang tabang sa mga pipila ka mga hingtungdan.

Sa samang higayon usab, kini nga mga priority legislative measures nahisubay sa Philippine Development Plan (PDP) 2011-2016, ang sundanan sa gobyerno nga maghubad sa social contract ngadto sa aksyon ni Pangulong Aquino nga maghatag benipisyo sa katawhan. (PIA-Surigao del Norte)
