DTI invested P3.61B in 2012 for MSMEs


PALO, Leyte Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) assisted micro small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) have invested P3.61 billion in 2012, a big jump from the 2011 capitalization, fueled by higher demand for locally-produced goods. DTI Regional Director Cynthia Nierras said that from P2.5 billion investment the previous year, it went up by 44% in 2012, surpassing the P2.15 billion target for last year. The growth in tourism arrival resulted to higher demand of processed foods and native products, thus stimulating new investments from MSMEs, Nierras told Leyte

SAN JUAN City Representative JV Ejercito Estrada expressed gratitude to President Benigno Aquino III amid reports that PNoy has already signed into law the Domestic Workers Act, widely known as Kasambahay Act. Im very thankful to President Aquino for his concern over the plight of household helps who have long been at the mercy of their respective employers, Ejercito Estrada said. This is the best gift we can give at the start of the new year for these hardworking men and

women who tend to our homes and take care of our children. The Kasambahay Act ensures the rights and welfare of the estimated 2 million household helps all over the country and also pegs their minimum salaries. Under the new law, the minimum salary of a domestic helper is pegged at P2,500 in Metro Manila, P2,000 in chartered cities and first-class municipalities, and P1,500 in the rest of the country. The law orders the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board to determine succeeding salary increases following consultations with stakeholders. Apart from monetary compensation, which includes a 13th-month pay, the law also mandates employers to enroll their househelpers in Social Security System, Philhealth, and Pag-ibig Fund and to pay part of their monthly contribution. Also, domestic helpers should be afforded at least eight hours of rest every day and a day off a week. Most household helps have very little education, Ejercito Estrada said. That is why Im

glad that my proposal to require employers to allow their household helps to complete their basic education has become part of the new law. A similar bill was first filed 15 years ago. The current bill went through countless modifications before it was finally approved in the 15th Congress in the first week of December. The San Juan lawmaker, as vice chairman of the Committee on Labor, is among those who shepherded the bill through the House of Representatives. (PR)

BIR to candidates: Pay 5% tax or be ned


TACLOBAN CITY As the election campaign period draws nearer, candidates for the May 2013 polls were warned by the Bureau of Internal Revenue to remit taxes they withheld from their campaign suppliers otherwise they would be fined. It is clearly stated in a memorandum order that candidates are required to withhold and remit 5% withholding tax whether they win or lose, or else the penalty for a delinquent candidate would be 30 percent surcharge and 25 percent interest per year. The candidates who engaged the services of a supplier in a particular month should withhold the five percent and pay it in the first ten days of the following month. Meanwhile, the Comelec is reminding all the candidates to submit a statement of their campaign donations and expenses to the poll body, and must have a file record of their expenses as well as a list of their donors for it is also stated in the law that the names of contributors and the amounts they gave to the candidate or to the party must be disclosed. No person shall make any contribution in any name except his own. No candidate or treasurer of any political party shall receive a contribution or enter or record the same in any name other than that of the person by whom it was actually made, the Omnibus Election Code said.

Algeria hostage crisis shows how OFWs are vulnerable to danger


John Leonard Monterona said that the situation in Algeria also applies to all OFWs worldwide, but those in the Middle East and North Africa are much vulnerable to terrorism and hostile acts. This will give us the opportunity to renew our call to the government to provide protection to us OFWs especially those in high risk jobs. The Aquino government through its labor department should call the attention of its counterpart of the host governments to ensure the safety and security of our fellow OFWs, Monterona told Leyte Samar Daily Express in an online interview. The OFW leader added that the Algeria hostage drama will have a negative impact to the labor export program of the Philippine government under Pres. Benigno Aquino. We note that Algeria has been eyed as

fertile labor frontier to the millions of aspiring OFWs, the about 10-M unemployed and underemployed Filipinos, and OFWs alike, Monterona lamented. Also in a statement, Migrante party-list chairperson Connie BragasRegalado said that the Philippine government should immediately repatriate the OFWs and ensure the financial assistance and full compensation of all the victims in

No substitute to peaceful elections

he credibility of the 2013 midterm elections will largely depend on how peaceful it would be. At the moment, it appears that the Philippine National Police is on track with their initial success in confiscating unlicensed firearms as reported. It has been an incontrovertible fact that some over-ambitious and greedy politicians possess a burning desire to get a contested political position at all cost. Along that intention that eats up all that is good and true in aspiring for that position, a private army is clandestinely organized. This armed group is primarily employed to harass and threaten candidates of the other camp; instill fear into their hearts and minds up to the time that other camp realizes that their lives are worthier than the dream to win a political post and so eventually withdraws.

In many instance, the private armed group is used to intimidate voters on the eve of elections and on the day of voting to toe their lines and if they dont, they simply refrain from going to the polling places. In rare instances, the private armed group is employed to kill political opponents. It is the dream of our nation that we conduct free and peaceful elections in 2013. It is the desire of our people that they are given this freedom and privilege to elect their officials, a vibrant and living spirit of democracy where sovereignty resides on them. So candidates should refrain from using the barrel of the gun as their way to political supremacy. Respect the rights and privilege of our people whom they want to lead them after this electoral exercise.

Human Rights Reparations Bill approval by bicameral body seen this week
For victims of martial law human rights victims, this could be a piece of good news. The compensation which they have been expecting for a much long time may now see a bright light. In the Philippine Congress, the expected action may already be realized. As of last Thursday, senator Chiz Escudero expressed his expectation that most likely within this week the human rights reparations bill will be approved by the bicameral committee.

of 2012, which seeks to indemnify victims of human rights abuses during the Marcos regime, states that any qualified victim shall receive compensation from the state free of tax. The

amount of compensation shall be in proportion to the gravity of the violation committed. If a victim died or has gone missing, it receives the highest points, from 7 to 10 points. If the

victim was tortured or was sexually abused depending on the evaluated gravity, I think 3 to 7 points. The amount really depends on how many claimants there are, Escudero explained.

OPINION
Of course, politicians from the Albuera-side (Leytes 4th District under beauteous Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez, should dialogue seriously with her counterpart veteran legislator Rep. Sergio Apostol, so that the road constructions time-line is strictly monitored and followed to the later! It is certain that both Albueranons and Burauanons bank heavily for the realization of the long-delayed project if only for the impending economic benefits it will bring to the two towns of Leyte. Definitely, to the LGUs to flex those muscles and show to their constituents that they are doing/have done something tangible for the entire peoples of Burauen and Albuera. The road project is a worthy LEGACY! Once completed, farm products will be easily transported, travel time between the eastern and the western towns as well as to the capital cities of Tacloban and Ormoc (even to Southern Leytes Maasin City), will be considerably shortened by an average of 80 kms. Business will be brisk in the area, people will be encouraged and made busier cause they dont observe parallelism. It should have been Lineyte-Sinamar, or Leytenhon-Samarnon, and not the above word formation, if parallel structure must have it. Still, the new compound name does not settle the old problem of ignoring the Cebuano speaking parts of the two islands. The only most qualified name for our language is Winaray. It connotes how the language is spoken. If you ask the question, how is your language spoken, or written? Winaray is the right answer. It suggests action, direction, and procedure. It is very active. Besides, it cannot be used like the word waray to refer to people, or to the areas speaking the language, but only to the language of these people and nothing more. We can strongly assert this name. Next time you refer to our language, say its Winaray. Spread it far and wide. Tell people its the name. Its not only appropriate; it is also very precise. Thats the name above other names.

Dr. paciente cordero, jr.

The day year 2012 was to close, drew this writers attention to the news item carried by The Philippine Star which read: Work on Leyte Road to resume. What caught the interest of the writer was that the project being referred to is the Burauen Albuera Road the same road started as early as the presidency of the Late Ramon Magsaysay (not during the Arroyo Administration as reported)!. This writer vividly remembers that as a secondary school student then, Burauen folks were

already talking about the same Burauen Albuera Road having been started already! After more than half a Century, the much-hyped project is again being floated and is hoped to be finished before the new year (2013) ends. The report, if realized, is a much welcomed though an equally much much delayed project! Not even the almost Two (2) Decades of the dominant political family of the Apostols and those who have reigned as Leytes District 2 representative have succeeded in completing the

road project. From the sidelines is heard bangin la tungod nga ma eleksyon na liwat yana nga tuig nga nagawas ine nga road project (= maybe its because its an election year that the project is being resurrected!). We cannot blame some doubting Thomases speak out their unfathomable doubt about the road project being completed this year! Again, the Leyte 2nd District Representative, daughter Board Member and wife Mayor all incumbents and all seeking reelection are challenged to make a dent for their political achievement, a gift for the vote-rich town of Burauen, the ultimate and final completion of the Burauen Albuera Road this year.

The Sower
Thursday of the 2nd Week Heb 7:25-8:6, Ps 40; Mk 3:7-12 THE MERCY OF JESUS
Jesus withdrew toward the sea with his disciples. A large number of people (followed) from Galilee and from Judea. Hearing what he was doing, a large number of people came to him also from Jerusalem, from Idumea, from beyond the Jordan, and from the neighborhood of Tyre and Sidon. He told his disciples to have a boat ready for him because of the crowd, so that they would not crush him. he had cured many, and as a result, those who had diseases were pressing upon him to touch him. and whenever unclean spirits saw him they would fall down before him and shout, You are the Son of God. He warned them sternly not to make him known.

I go for Winaray

Things To Mind
doms pagliawan I made this stand before and I still do so up to nowthe name of our language in Leyte and Samar should be Winaray. You see, our language here in Eastern Visayas is called by different names such as Waray-waray, Waray, Lineyte, Sinamar, Leytenhon, Samarnon, Lineyte-Samarnon, and Winaray. I would like to argue, however, that if we are to have only one name for our native language here, it should be the latter and nothing more. Why, the rest of these names pose some semantic problems that disqualify them as official names for our native language. Their meanings themselves create those disqualifications, as you can see in this brief discourse. Look at the name Waray. This means none or nothing which doesnt make a good name. Nothing good comes out of nothing. What do you have if you got none at all? Seriously, this name refers more to the people speaking the language, not to the language itself. When used in reference to people, it gathers a heavier meaning, because it then points to an identity of a person or people living in this part of the country. If, semantically, waray is void and empty, then waray-waray doubles that tragedy. It aggravates the worst. Whoever had coined these words must have been prone to idleness, because thats what this two-word combination suggests. Its a word for inactivity, passivity, hopelessness, desperation; a very negative word, indeed. Surely, it should not be the name of our beloved mother tongue.

Consider the name, Lineyte. Is it an appropriate name? Is the language spoken only in Leyte? No way; its well spoken in Samar, too, thats why the people here also came up with the name, Sinamar, seemingly dividing the two islands linguistically. However, both of these names are disqualified in that not all of Leyte, and not all of Samar, speak the language. There are large parts of the two islands that speak Cebuano and should not then be covered with these names. As an offshoot to the above debate, the names Leytenhon and Samarnon also surfaced. But you will notice that these are merely simple deviations from the former issue, a variation of some sort. The names still suggest the divided places seemingly speaking different languages when in fact, they have the same language. The disqualifications of these names, too, are the same. So the name LineyteSamarnon came out, hoping to settle the issue. But its still the same names coined together to create a funny structure. Why funny, be-

THE CHURCH AT ITS BEST!


The Mass is the Sacrament of sacraments. At Mass, Jesus Christ continues to act the ideal High Priest (Heb 7:26) as he did on Calvary. The death and the resurrection of Jesus are not only historical events, but a source of continuing power for the moment, and the power of Jesus death and resurrection have been captured sacramentally and made available to us through the Mass. Through our celebration of the Eucharist, Jesus continues to build us as his people forgiven and healed, moulding us into one people. So, as the people of our Lords time, afflicted in any way, were crowding forward to touch him (Mk 3:11), we, even today, crowd around the Eucharist to touch and to be touched by the same Jesus, so that we continue to grow into a loving and caring community. Mass is the Church at its best! But, as we come in big crowds around the Eucharist, do we know each other as brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ? If we are anonymous to one another as we approach Christ, if we are indifferent to each others needs, I am afraid, Christ himself may remain anonymous to us. As Christ calls us to participate in the sacrifice of the Mass, he calls us to get up! Up, out of our self-centered living! Up , out of our indifference! Up, out of our fears and paralysis, when the Spirit stirs our conscience to reach out to those who are hurting. (His Word for Today by Vima Dasan, SJ, Published by Paulines.

It is an art, and we need to learn it at the school of Jesus hanging from the cross. Learn from me, he tells us, how to really suffer. Blessed James Alberione, founder of the Pauline Family

MANILASAN Juan City Rep. JV Ejercito Estrada welcomed a move aimed at reducing by 85 percent the exorbitant placement fee being charged to Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) seeking jobs in Taiwan.

Ejercito Estrada, who is the vice chairman of the House labor and employment committee, urged MECO to fast-track the drafting of mechanics for reducing the placement fee to unburden OFWs seeking employment in Taiwan from paying too much. He also urged the Labor department to act with dispatch when rules governing the implementation of reduced placement fee have been approved for implementation. I dont see any hindrance in the move to slash the exorbitant placement fee being charged to our kababayans who opted to work in Taiwan. Since the move was initiated by private stakeholders themselves, Im optimistic that this will be implemented soonest, Ejercito Estrada said. I just hope there will be similar move for OFWs who are seeking jobs in other countries like those in the Middle East. The government, as in other sending countries, should shoulder the placement fee because OFWs are our partners in nation-building, he stressed. At present, there are some 90,000 Filipinos working in Taiwan, making the Philippines the third largest labor-sending country after Indonesia and Vietnam. There are around 11 million OFWs in different parts of the world who send $20 billion in remittances annually. (PR)

The other two provinces in the region earlier declared as Filariasis-free provinces were Biliran and Southern Leyte. Filariasis is a parasitic disease transmitted by mosquito bites which primarily hit people who are living in the remote countryside areas, particularly in the Visayas and Mindanao. Its symptoms include thickening of the skin and underlying tissues or known as Elephantiasis. DOH said it aims to achieve Filariasis Free Philippines by 2018.

sow fear among the people. Instead of attaining our objective (of a peaceful elections), well instead heighten the tension. But if the circumstances warrants, then we will not hesitate (to augment police and Army personnel) in Samar, Ausan, who assumed the post last Tuesday, said. Earlier, several barangay officials and residents of Calbayog City pressed for an increased

district, considered to be where political violence is expected to occur just like in previous balloting. Last Jan.13, three persons were killed and two others were wounded when a group of armed men swooped down on Barangay Alibaba, 12 kms away from the city proper of Calbayog. Politics was one of the motives cited by police authorities for the incident. Suspects remain at large. The regional Philip-

Samar, considered to be a concerned or hot spot area for the May, 2013 elections. Samar was identified as such due to its past electoral history of violence, presence of private armed groups (PAGs) to include as well as the presence of the rebel group, the New Peoples Army. Ausan said that at least two to three weeks before the elections, he would determine if there is a need to increase the presence of police and

the Army in Samar. Ausan also said that while Samar has been listed as a concerned area, at this point in time, it still remains to be just a list. For his part, Assistant Regional Director Veronico Petalcorin said that they would seriously consider for additional deployment of police and Army personnel in Samar. if the need arises. He said that considering that

policemen, for example, has also to carry out their other duties, it would not be easy to move them as an augmentation force. We will see if there

is a need to deploy more forces there. They are also working on the police matter other than carry out their election duties, Petalcorin said.

of the reactionary medias proclaim themselves as antiimperialist, though careful reading reveals these to be promoting one reactionary power versus another. We recently received the following statement and analysis of the situation in Syria from revolutionary Maoists in Brazil. Views of revolutionary internationalists have too rarely been heard on this issue, and so we present these views as a good counterpoint to the prevailing revisionist and reactionary accounts. We believe these comrades in Brazil have done significant groundwork toward the analysis needed. There are some aspects of this analysis which require more work and debate, in our view. In particular, their argument that Peoples War--if defined as Chinas revolutionary military strategy--is universally applicable to all countries, is a view we do not share. Our understanding that the Maoist strategic conception of Peoples War, (as summarized by the phrase, surrounding the cities from the countryside), only applies to feudal, semi-feudal, colonial and semi-colonial societies, where repressive power in the countryside is sufficiently weak that peoples revolutionary war, seizing and expanding significant liberated areas is an accurately applied historic strategem.

The amount is part of the funds transferred to the Philippine Government by the Swiss Federal Supreme Court and is now held in escrow. Its a long and emotional process. Its emotional because some members of the committee were also victims themselves. But we are getting there. We just have to settle the issue whether the Hawaii claimants shall be extended the conclusive presumption that they are victims of human rights abuses and therefore are automatically compensated or they be given the disputable presumption, the senator said.

ployed everywhere, a long period of amassing revolutionary political forces through primarily political , not military, struggle, must precede the armed struggle for state power. These general categories and strategies have often been taken literally, without detailed investigation and analysis, at great and disastrous cost to revolutionary forces. The need for detailed study of concrete conditions is especially indicated by the ongoing changes in capitalist-imperialist production, distribution, and state power--and the distribution and growth of peoples forces. But some use the term Peoples War, not in the sense of the countrysideovertaking-city strategem, but synonymous with peoples armed struggle for power in all variety of circumstance--as a statement of principle, in opposition to the revisionist and socialdemocratic notion of the peaceful, electoral road to power. In this sense, Peoples War (where the masses take up the gun against reactionary power, and where the gun is led by revolutionary politics) is a universal revolutionary principle. *** Potestatem obscuri lateris nescis - You dont know the power of the dark side.

GSIS has new policy on retiring members


TACLOBAN CITYRetiring members of the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) who have outstanding service and housing loans with the pension fund will now get to enjoy their retirement benefits, without worries of having their unpaid obligations deducted or clipped from their retirement proceeds. This developed after the current GSIS Board of Trustees approved a resolution modifying its Claims and Loans Interdependency Policy or CLIP and allowed retiring members to have an opportunity to decide on the mode of settlement for their outstanding loan obligations. CLIP is a policy under which GSIS deducts the arrears incurred by members from the proceeds of their new loan or retirement benefits. The new policy, called CLASP or the Choice of Loan Amortization Schedule for Pensioners, gives retirees the choice to settle their outstanding loan obligations in full or in partial terms (75 percent, 50 percent or 25 percent) which shall be deducted from their retirement benefits. The balance of the outstanding obligation shall be restructured as a loan with a rate of 10 percent per annum compounded annually, payable over a maximum period of three years. The total arrearages or outstanding balance of the retirees housing loan shall not be deducted from their retirement and cash surrender value or termination value proceeds, and shall be settled separately.

City District Engineering Office constructs drainage systems


TACLOBAN CITY -- The City District Engineering Office has constructed four drainage systems in different areas that are flood-prone in order to lessen the flooding crisis in Tacloban. These drainage systems will serve as the primary way to reduce, if not prevent, frequent flooding in the city, said Arnaldo Bonifacio, district engineer. Also, he said in a statement that the drainage systems were constructed at Rizal Avenue Extension Road in Barangays Abucay 59-B and 87. On December 17 last year, the drainage system at Rizal Avenue was completed at a cost of P4 million while the drainage in Daan Maharlika, Barangay Abucay, was completed on December 20 costing P4,008,500. However, the newly constructed drainage system at Tanghas Creek along Caibaan Road of Brgy. 59-B will solve the flooding in the said area. The project cost is P3.9 million. The construction of another drainage system in Brgy. 87 was completed on December 14, 2012 with a funding of P1.4 million. (JESSICA O. PULGA,
