by David M. Suyao

-- The new 402nd Infantry Brigade Commander, Col. Ronald Abano, formally sworn office following the turn over ceremony at the 402 Brigade headquarters in New Leyte, Prosperidad, Agusan del Sur.

Abano replaced Col. James Jacob, who was temporarily assigned after rebels raided Taganito Mining in Claver, Surigao del Norte recently.

According to 4th Infantry Division Assistant Commander and former 402nd brigade commander Gen. Emeliano Gupana, the turn over ceremony marks a significant, more responsive occasion in the army to become attuned to the ever changing times of the operational condition of Caraga Region in particular.

As response, Albano said he will follow all orders of the higher command, especially the Commander-in-Chief.

“As a good soldier standing before you, I am here to pursue our goal with determination in this new area of responsibility. I therefore ask the men and women of 402nd Brigade that we move in unison to achieve our mission to make the area peaceful and productive. Let us be one in helping our Commander-in-Chief, Pres. Aquino for his efforts for a lasting peace. With this, I am accepting the challenge with new hope to answer the new call of duty as a professional soldier,” Albano said.

Albano is not new to Caraga Region. He was once a battalion commander of the 30th Infantry Battalion based in Surigao del Norte, and he said he is familiar with Caraga Region. (PIA-Agusan del Sur)

by Robert E. Roperos

-- The Regional Office of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in Caraga is set to turnover a patrol boat to the municipality of Del Carmen, Siargao Island that will help in the conservation, protection and rehabilitation of the environment and natural resources.

During the recent interview with a local broadcaster here, BFAR-Caraga Regional Director Nerio Casil said illegal fishing is very rampant in the coastal areas of Siargao Island, which prompted them to take necessary action.

Dir. Casil also said that with the said motor vessel, illegal fishing will be minimized as they are determined to run after those fishermen who are practicing dynamite fishing and other illegal fishing activities.

Casil said illegal fishing activities tend to happen when perpetrators know that the arm of the law cannot reach them.

However, the BFAR chief of the region emphasized that authorities are determined to go after these violators to end illegal fishing no matter how far they are in the main land of Surigao City and in the region. He also called on the townspeople and Philippine National Police (PNP) for support in this cause to protect the environment and natural resources. (PIA-Caraga)

ABAMIN Rep vows continuous support to Butuan City

by Robert E. Roperos

– Abante Mindanao (ABAMIN) Party-list Representative Maximo Rodriguez, Jr. on Thursday vowed to continue supporting the city government here for the development of the city and the entire Caraga Region.

In a press conference held at the City Mayor’s conference room here, Rodriguez said that part of the pork barrel he is receiving will go to the Mindanao Rural Development Project (MRDP). He added the city of Butuan, through Mayor Ferdinand Amante, was able to receive some P1 million for the development of infrastructure projects.

Rodriguez also said the province of Bukidnon as well as in Surigao were also given appropriate budget for infra development.

He emphasized that part of the infrastructure development is the construction of drainage systems that will benefit majority of the people in Mindanao. He said he is happy to note that the city government of Butuan is also pushing for Solid Waste Management System which is in-line with the plans and programs of ABAMIN.

The official also stressed ABAMIN is also supporting the infrastructure development on school buildings as he believed that this is one of the factors in providing quality education to pupils and students in Mindanao.

For ABAMIN, Rodriguez believed that Mindanao is the “Tiger Economy” of the country.

“Mindanao will be the place where food in the country will be sourced out… We are the food basket of the country so infrastructure development on agriculture must also be prioritized,” he said.

Rodriguez further said he will be pouring in more infrastructure projects along Butuan and Surigao corridor especially developing roads such as asphalt overlaying and road concreting that will bring more development to Caraga Region.

“I have already requested the Department of Budget and Management and the Department of Public Works and Highways for additional projects not only here in Caraga Region but all over Mindanao,” Rodriguez said.

The ABAMIN party-list representative was here to grace a gathering of Barangay Captains of the 86 barangays in this city.

ABAMIN is one of the 42 party-list groups elected during the May 2010 elections, where the first nominee, Congressman Rodriguez, Jr. becomes one of the 285 members of the 15th Congress in the House of Representatives of the country. (PIA-Caraga)

ABAMIN Rep advocates “Power Mindanao”

by Robert E. Roperos

-- Following the power crisis that the entire island of Mindanao is experiencing since last year, Abante Mindanao (ABAMIN) Representative Maximo Rodriguez, Jr. is advocating “Power Mindanao.”

Speaking before the local tri-media during the press conference held Thursday at the City Mayor’s conference room here, Rodriguez said he is supporting the withholding of the selling of Agus-Pulangi Plant.

He also said congressmen in Mindanao are also supporting for the suspension of selling the said 700-megawatt hydropower complex to the private sector.

He added if this will be sold out, this will drastically increase the price of electricity. “We don’t have to sell Agus-Pulangi,” Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez also emphasized that he also considered talking with Aboitiz Corporation for the installation of small hydro-package mill. He said the current of the rivers is enough to operate the turbine.

“We have Agusan River here and this may possibly be a good location for the installation of a turbine… there’s no need to have a dam anymore… the water current will allow the turbine to work,” he said.

The official further said considering solar power system is Mindanao is a good alternative for electricity. He said this is the only cheapest power source. “We hope we can also bring in solar power in Mindanao because that is the only cheapest source of power we can have,” Rodriguez said. (PIA-Caraga)

Tagalog news: Kuponan ng SEA-K tumanggap ng tulong pinansiyal mula sa DSWD

by David M. Suyao

-- Pitong kuponan ng Self Employment Assistant – Kaunlaran (SEA-K) mula sa tatlong bayan dito ay tumanggap ng P945,000 para suportahan ang kanilang mga programang pangkabuhayan mula sa Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

Ang pondo, ayon ka DSED Regional Director Mercidita Jabagat, ay gagastusin para sa pangkabuhayang proyekto ng kababaihan para madagdagan ang kinikita ng kaniknilang pamilya.

Sa ginawang convergence caravan ng DSWD sa covered court ng D.O. Plaza Sports Complex sa Patin-ay, Prosperidad, Agusan del Sur, inilahad din ni Dir. Jabagat ang Pantawid Pamilayang Pilipino Program (4Ps) na pinamamahalaan ng DSWD kung saan umabot na sa 46,113 ang mga naging benepisaryo sa Agusan del Sur.

Sa buwan ng Hulyo at Agosto ng taong ito, ang DSWD ay nakapag-release ng kabuang P31 milyon kung saan P22 milyon ay nairelease sa pamamagitan ng ATM card, at ang P9 milyon naman ay inirelease sa pamamagitan ng tinatawag na “over-the-counter” na transaction ng Land Bank of the Philippines. Sa kasalukuyan, kami ay nakipagkasundo sa Cantilan Bank para ang mga benepisaryo ay hindi na pupunta sa Land Bank diyan sa San Francisco kung hindi, duon mismo sa munisipyo ng bayan kung saan sila nakatira para kunin ang kanilang pera,” sabi ni Dir. Jabagat.

Sa kanyang mensahe, nagpasalamat si Agusan del Sur Gob. Adolph Edward Plaza kay Sec. Dinky Soliman ng DSWD sa kanyang pagpursige na itulak ang programang 4Ps para ito ay compirmahin ni Pres. Benigno Aquino para ito ay ipagpatuloy.

“Palagi kong naririnig na kayo ay nagpapasalamat sa akin at sa dalawang conggresista natin sa mga benepisyong inyong natatanggap mula sa 4Ps, pero mas dapat kayong magpasalamat kay Sec. Dinky Soliman sa kanyang pagsisikap na maitulak ang programa para ito ay maipatuloy, at magkaroon ng malakas na pundasyon ang mga maralita balang araw. Pero dapat, gawin rin ninyo ang inyong parte para kayo ay maging matagumpay sa pamamagitan ng mga tulong na ibinibigay ng pamahalaan sa inyo tulad ng 4Ps. Sa nakikita ko ngayon, kayo ay hindi maligaya at mukhang pagod pa dahil ang inyong kinikita ay hindi sapat para sa isang malaking pamilya gaya ng mga pamilya ninyo. Tulungan nyo rin ang mga sarili ninyo na hindi magkaanak ng marami dahil madaling suportahan ang mga pamilyang kakaunti ang mga anak para sa kanilang edukasyon at kalusugan. Ang pamahalaan ay hindi kayang ibigay sa inyo lahat kaya magtulong-tulong tayo,” sabi ni Gob. Plaza.

Ang mga nakatanggap ng mga tseke ng SEA-K ay: Naliyagan SEA-K mula sa Prosperidad, Anahaw SKA ng San Luis, Lumbia SKA ng San Luis, Anilao SKA mula sa Veruela, Sitio San Pedro SKA mula Veruela, Sunshine SKA at Faith SKA mula pa rin sa Veruela. (PIA-Agusan del Sur)

Cebuano news: Aquino mipasalig nga luwas ang demokrasya ug kasagrado sa kinaugalingon sa mga sangang buhatan sa pangagamhanan

ni Susil D. Ragas

SURIGAO CITY, Dis. 15 (PIA) –-
Si Pangulong Benigno S. Aquino III mipasalig niadtong Martes nga ang proseso sa demokrasya ug ang kasagrado sa kinaugalingon sa mga sangang pangagamhanan sa nasod mapreserba luyo sa iyang suporta alang sa mga Artikulo sa Impeachment nga nagtinguha pagtangtang kang Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona gikan sa iyang natudlong posisyon.

Ang Pangulo mitubag sa mga kabalaka nga gipadayag sa mga nagkalain-laing legal experts ug constitutionalists nga usa ka Constitutional crisis ang posibleng motumaw kung ang gobyerno magpadayon sa pagduso sa kaso niini batok kang Corona, ug miingon nga kini nga mga kabalaka ug uban pa “exchange of opinion” nagpakita og tinuod nga buhi ug buswak ang demokrasya sa atong nasod.

“Ang pagsasalita pa lang nila ebidensya na siguro na hindi nadi-diskaril ang ating demokrasya at bagkus buhay na buhay ang ating demokrasya. ‘Yung pagpapalitan ng kanilang opinyon, ‘di ba, may nagmumungkahi, mayroong kontra doon; ‘pag nag-dayalogo, nagkausap, mapapaganda nila ‘yung mungkahi ng nauna,” ang Pangulo miingon.

“So ‘yun lang po ang nangyayari sa ating proseso ngayon dito. At marami na rin namang mga abugado ang nagpasabi sa atin na sang-ayon sila sa ating mga pinaggagagawa. At ‘yung iba ho medyo kinakabahan na baka ma-sanction ng Korte Suprema kaya nananahimik. Hindi ibig sabihin na mas marami ho ang naniniwalang hindi tama ang ginagawa natin. Palagay ko po kung babasehan pa natin ‘yung mga survey na lumalabas eh karamihan ng mga Pilipino ay talagang sumang-ayon sa atin pong ginawa,” siya midugang.

Sa iyang mensahe atol sa kawkus pulitika nga gipahigayon didto sa Edsa Shangri-la Hotel, ang Pangulo miingon ang iyang pangagamhanan padayon pagpanday sa tinguha niini nga ipagawas ang mga kausaban sa sistema sa hustisya sa Pilipinas, isip responsibilidad niya ug sa mga katawhan nga segurohon nga ang mosunod nga henerasyon mabinlan og ligdong ug tarong nga hudikatura.

“May responsibilidad tayo sa ating mga sarili, sa ating kapwa Pilipino, at lalo na sa salinlahing paparating pa lamang. Isa lang ang pinagpipilian natin: tanggapin ang kasalukuyang situwasyon na hindi tumutugon sa kagustuhan at pangangailangan ng nakararami o itulak ang pagbabago, at bumuo ng sistema kung saan mananagot ang may kasalanan, maski sino ka man,” ang Pangulo miingon.

“Pagkatapos po ng mga prosesong ito, sinisiguro ko may naitindig na tayong mas matibay na mga institusyong kaytagal pinahina ng nakaraang administrasyon. Ito po ang ating ipamamana sa susunod na salinlahi. Nananalig akong tayo'y magtatagumay dahil tayo'y nasa tama, at hangad natin ang ikabubuti ng nakararami kung hindi ng lahat. Sa lahat ng Pilipinong naghahangad ng malawakan at makabuluhang pagbabago, abot-kamay na po natin ito; nakikita ko na ang tagumpay kung bawat isa sa atin ay gagawin ang nararapat at makatuwiran. Hayaan po nating kunsensya ang magtimon sa atin,” siya midugang. (PIA- Surigao del Norte)
