by David M. Suyao

AGUSAN DEL SUR, Aug. 18 (PIA) - Agusan del Sur Gov. Adolph Edward Plaza posed the peace challenge to four mayors in Agusan del Sur.

He asked them to work for the elusive peace in the countryside, side by side with development as he received two checks worth P14,216,000 from the Office of the Presidential Adviser on Peace Process (OPAPP). The amount will be used to finance various projects ranging from infra repairs to livelihood in their respective municipalities.

According to OPAPP Assistant Secretary Howard Cafugauan, although the initial implementation of the project will be undertaken by the provincial government thru the provincial engineering office, consequent projects will be undertaken by the recipient municipalities with the provincial government as monitoring and evaluation authority.

“For the mayors, you should not thank me that the project is finally here... You should thank the members of the technical working group who put their hands together in order that these initial projects will be implemented immediately; and the OPAPP, for believing in our sincerity (to achieve)...lasting peace and development in our province,” Gov. Plaza said.

The said amount is part of the P18 million intended for the rehabilitation of farm-to-market roads in San Francisco, Bayugan and Prosperidad, rehabilitation of Andanan Baily bridge in Sibagat, livelihood projects like rubber-based farming (rubber plus banana plus fruit tress), abaca production, cacao production, handicraft production, and of the water supply system, particularly in Sibagat town.

PBCC Agusan Sur now hits 65% blood collection against annual target

by David M. Suyao

AGUSAN DEL SUR, Aug. 18 (PIA) -- The Provincial Blood Coordinating Council (PBCC) has achieved 65 percent of its blood collection target for this year. It is intensifying efforts to accommodate donors all over the province.

Among the walk-in blood donors this week were sixteen employees of the provincial capitol and three non-government employees. The program is being implemented by the provincial government, the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) and the PBCC.

To date, according to Julie Lapides, medical technologist of the PRC Agusan del Sur Chapter, blood collected by the PBCC already reached some 1,700 units, around 68 percent against the annual target of 2,500 units.

“Just like the previous years, as birthday gift of the Agusanons to Gov. Adolph Edward Plaza who will celebrate his birthday on Augsut 21, we conducted blood-letting at the provincial capitol," PRC administrator Cristyll Basan said.

"While it is a special schedule, many always responded, and the activity is undertaken not only by the technical force of the PBCC, but with the joint personnel compliment from the D.O. Plaza Memorial Hospital, Prosperidad Health Center and the PRC Agusan del Sur Chapter. The team, led by Dr. Carolyn Mandia of the D.O. Plaza Memorial Hospital with four medical technologists and nurses also from the same hospital, a medtech from Prosperidad and personnel from the PRC Agusan del Sur chapter started the blood-letting activity at around 9:00 o’clock in the morning and ended at 12:00 noon. With that length of time, we have collected 19 units, a great contribution to our blood requirement in the province.”

Being unique compared to other provinces, the provincial government of Agusan del Sur subsidizes the financial requirements for the re-agents in processing the blood collected by the PBCC. Last year, the provincial government of Agusan del Sur budgeted P1.5 Million, and an additional P1 Million from the supplementary fund. Another P50,000 each from the 13 municipalities and the city of Bayugan is also collected based on their pledges to address the mobility and other incidental expenses for the blood program.

Lately, the PRC Agusan del Sur have acquired a brand new refrigerator worth P450,000 for the storage of blood collected as requirement for being a blood collection unit by the Department of Health. (PIA- Agusan del Sur)

Gallant lady COP rise to ‘Senior Inspector’ rank

by Noel B. Najarro

BUTUAN CITY, Aug. 18 (PIA) - A chief policewoman who gallantly repelled, with only a few men, an early morning attack by well-armed joint forces of NPA rebels on July 30, was promoted to the next higher rank, Monday morning, August 15.

The Director of the Directorate for Integrated Police Operations-Eastern Mindanao (DIPO-EM) Police Director Victorino S. Panganiban, Jr., who was also the guest of honor and speaker during 110th “Police Service Anniversary,” pinned the rank insignia of a Police Senior Inspector (Captain) on PInsp. Charity S. Galvez, OIC chief of Trento Municipal Police Station signifying her “spot promotion” to the next rank.

The promotion of Galvez was among the highlights 110th PNP Service anniversary celebration held at the parade grounds of the said camp.

The order for the spot promotion of PSInsp. Galvez, came from the police national headquarters, Camp Crame Quezon City, based on General Orders No. 1061 dated August 9, 2011; raising her previous rank to senior inspector (Captain) in permanent status effective July 30, 2011.

In an interview with the local media after the program, the honoree could not conceal the joy she felt “ in knowing that the sacrifice which my men and I had shown, when we laid our very lives on the line in order to defend our posts had not passed unnoticed,” she said. Galvez said she was ever thankful to President Aquino who issued the orders of her promotion, but quick to add that the accomplishment will be credited, not all on her efforts alone but also that of her valiant men.

Galvez said that until recently, threats of another attack against their station are still floated around and some of the threats were even directed against her personally and that of her policemen. However she said that God may forbid, but should a similar situation may again arise, she will not hesitate to lay her life on line once more to defend her post and her country when duty calls.

Asked on what she had learned on that said experience, the 39-year old teacher turned police officer said that she will be wiser and discerning this time not to bring along her 2-year old daughter to her workplace. She said that previously she had entertained the idea that the rebels will spare attacking a place like their station because of the belief that these rebels were principled fighters fighting for the good of the community as their cause. She knew better this time, she said. The rebels according to her will just strike at any opportune time regardless of what will be the consequences.

The other police officers also who had contributed their respective efforts of successfully defending the police station against the attackers were also awarded. A “Plaque of Merit” was also awarded to PInsp. Arvin A. Bolotano (Platoon Leader, Agusan del Sur Police Public Safety Company) ug PInsp. Ronald N. Orcullo, (Platoon Leader and the Executive Officer, Agusan del Sur PPSC) who augmented the personnel of Trento MPS during the time of attack. Also given a “Plaque of Merit” was PInsp. Lloyd J. Mercado, the OIC chief of Sta. Josefa Municipal Police Station who led a six-man team and were supposed to proceed to Trento Police Station on board an AC Bus, but encountered the rebel’s blocking force upon reaching Crossing Cuevas. They fought the enemy who boarded three vehicles and forced them to withdraw towards the direction of Pulang Lupa, Trento, Agusan del Sur.

The two wounded police personnel during the attack PO3 Mhel H. Hubo and PO1 Joel Lazarte, all members of the Agusan del Sur Police Public Safety Company, also were awarded with a “Medalya Ng Sugatang Magiting” (PNP Wounded Personnel Medals).

It should be remembered that on July 30, 2011 at around 5:0 A.M. Trento Municipal Police Station, agusan del Sur was attacked by more or less 250 fully armed rebels believed to belong to the Guerilla Front 20 and Guerilla Front 3 under rebel commanders “Lalay” and “Rico.” The ensuing firefight which lasted for an hour left two civilians killed and two police personnel wounded after the said incident. Undetermined casualties were also believed to have been suffered by the rebels, as evidenced by the blood trails along their escape routes. Two of the attackers were later apprehended the following day while they were admitted at a hospital in Bislig City.

Meanwhile, a policeman who died in an NPA ambush at Purok 7, Brgy. Pasian, Monkayo, Compostela Valley early morning of June 30, 2011; SPO3 Benjamin A. Langbid a personnel of Regional Investigation Division, PRO 13 was also given his Plaque of Merit posthumously. (PIA Caraga)

But he believed that a big number of the rank is faithful to their sworn duty of protecting the public.

The DIPO-EM chief calls on the men in uniform to always do what is good for God, to the community, to the public and the environment.
