Fisherfolk rescue 8 tourists, 2 crew members in Caramoan

CARAMOAN, CSur—All eight passengers including the two crew members of MB Camline, a motorboat that ferries island-hopping tourists here were rescued by the local fisherfolk, the members of the Coast Guard assigned said.

The said motorized banca capsized while negotiating the big waves on their way to Matukad Island from the coastlines near Brgy. Paniman, here.

The passengers, the report said were tourists who wanted to see for themselves the internationally-popular coastlines of Camamoan Peninsula.

The accident occurred at atount 10:30 in the morning on January 28.

“The waves was big enough to swallow the small motorized banca. The wind was so strong because of the Northeast monsoon,” a fisherman narrated in an interview.

The members of the Philippine Coast Guard assigned in the area said that all the eight passengers and the two crew members are in safe condition already.

Garbage debate heats up

NAGA CITY—Effective February 2017, the Naga City dumpsite at Barangay Balatas will be closed after the expiration of the 10-year extension period.


This is according to Engr. Joel Martin, chief of the Naga City Solid Waste Management Office in a media interview.

The garbage issue has again taken center stage as members of the city council have started to deliberate on the P200-million budget for the new sanitary landfill.

Over the weekend, Mayor John Bongat appealed to the members of the Sangguniang Panlungsod to expedite the deliberation on the budget as it still remains on the table.

Bongat expressed that he has already received several reminders from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) regarding the illegal operation of the open dumpsite.

The Ombudsman, on the other hand, had issued a stern warning against local officials who would not abide by Republic Act No. 9003 or the Ecological Waste Management Act of 2000.

Earlier, Wilfredo Prilles, the City Planning and Development Officer said that until now, they have not decided on whether to recommend a three-hectare or a five-hectare sanitary landfill.

In an interview with BICOL STANDARD, City Councilor Lito del Rosario said they are focused on solving this problem because they have been receiving numerous complaints on the stench of the garbage, which is becoming a health hazard.

This is compounded by the fact that the DENR has been issuing warning regarding the open dumpsite’s closure, del Rosario said.

A major concern was raised, however, by City Councilor Julian Lavadia, Jr. regarding the wisdom of spending P200 million on the landfill, which would only last for 62 months.

Broadcaster sues Cesar Barcelona

LABO, Camarines Norte 1/31/17 (Bicol Standard)—A criminal complaint for violation of Article 201 of the Revised Penal Code, otherwise known as Immoral Doctrines, Obscene Publication and Exhibition and Indecent Shows was filed against Cesar Barcelona y Espeso by broadcaster Michael A. Dolera on January 6, 2017.

In the said complaint, Dolera said that Barcelona violated the said law “when he instructed his men and allowed his Isuzu Elf Truck with installed LED TV screen to be used publicly and jointly to exhibit via television, indecent and immoral acts, scenes or shows of nude men and women in sexual positions, with no other purpose but to promote and satisfy the market for lust and pornography to public view.”

The complainant said this occurred on April 23, 2016.

In his sworn affidavit, Dolera said that on the said date, between 5:30 to 6:00 p.m., he saw a group of people showing a video, which he considers as obscene, on a big TV screen.

Said television was mounted on a white truck bearing plate number AAA 9439 in front of LCC Supermarket at Barangay Pena here.

Together with several other persons, they were able to watch the video of a naked person, allegedly Governor Egay Tallado and another woman, whose identity is allegedly unknown to him.

Dolera also stated that during the said occasion, Bernie Alaon, a municipal councilor of this town was present. It was he (Alaon) who took the initiative of asking the operator of the video to stop showing it to the public since it contains obscene footages.

It was also Alaon who requested PO3 Ronald Abejero to stop the showing of the video. The police officer, thereafter, brought the persons in-charge of the video to the police station.

The cops identified said persons in-charge Romeo Ibana y Gapoy, Aries Babala y Feliciano, Janica Concordia, Jay-Ar Gacho y Bachaen, Domingo Magtallo y Briones and Cesar Barcelona.

The complainant further said that during the investigation in the police station, while Alaon was giving his statement, Barcelona arrived. Barcelona admitted that he is the owner of the truck where the LED TV was installed.

Furthermore, during the inquest investigation of this case, the Provincial Prosecutor dismissed the complaint against Barcelona for lack of sufficient evidence, after he (Barcelona) told the investigator that he is not the owner of the truck.

It was only on August 24, 2016 when Barcelona, through his counsel, filed a Motion to Release the vehicle with the Regional Trial Court of Labo, Camarines Norte. He admitted that that he is the owner of the vehicle where the alleged obscene video was shown.

The admission of Barcelona that he is the owner of the subject Isuzu truck is the main ground used by the complainant.

Dolera further informed the Provincial Prosecution Office that he is willing to adduce more evidence to attest to his claim that the respondent violated Article 201 of the Revised Penal Code.

Barcelona, it will be recalled, is the father of Dr. Cathy Barcelona-Reyes, the former Representative of the 1st District of Camarines Norte. She was also the opponent of Gov. Edgar Tallado in the last election for governor. (BICOLSTANDARD.COM)

Pili mayor faces raps

Mayor Tom Bongalonta

PILI, Camarines Sur 1/31/17 (Bicol Standard)— Twin complaint-affidavits were executed by Yolanda M. Berina, Punong Barangay of New San Roque here against respondents Mayor Tomas P. Bongalonta, Jr. and David O. Olaguera.

The first complaint-affidavit is criminal in nature, hence, it will be filed with the Ombudsman.

The second complaint is an administrative case that will be filed with the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Camarines Sur, which has jurisdiction on the matter.

As alleged by Berina, Bongalonta violated the pertinent provisions of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act (R.A. 3019), specifically Section 3 (e) the said law.

This was when, as town chief executive, he appointed David O. Olaguera, as his personal driver/security, knowing fully well that the latter is an elected member of the Sangguiang Barangay of New San Roque, hence is appointment is against the law.

The complainant quoted Section 7 of Art. IX of the 1987 Constitution, which prohibits the appointment of Olaguera in any capacity and to any public office or position during his tenure as an elected member of the Sangguniang Barangay.

The said prohibition was clearly transgressed by Bongalonta, she said.

Berina also believes that Bongalonta and Olaguera are both liable under the said provision of the Anti-Graft Law and the 1987 Constitution.

Meanwhile, a separate administrative complaint will be filed against the same respondents with the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Camarines Sur.

Furthermore, the complaint-affidavit narrated that Mayor Bongalonta has given unwarranted benefit or favor to Olaguera when he authorized the payment P7,500.00 to him as his salary for his service per month.

“Bongalonta is presumed to know the law and his gross ignorance thereof does not excuse his violation. This is especially because as Municipal Mayor he is charged with implementing the law,” the complainant added.

The said complaint-affidavit was notarized on January 25, 2017.

Political persecution issue


In a related development, Camarines Sur Vice Governor Fortunato “Ato” Pena has issued a vehement denial that he has a hand in the alleged plan to subject Mayor Bongalonta to administrative suspension by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan.

He told the members of the media that he is not the complainant, nor has any knowledge or participation in the preparation of whatever complaint against Bongalonta.

“You can refer to the official records of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan and verify the said issue. There is a private complainant. If ever, it will be heard by a competent committee who will recommend whatever course of action that the body will make. As far as I am concerned, I have no involved in this complaint,” Pena said.

Meanwhile, this political development was further fuelled by Vice Governor Pena’s confirmation over a radio broadcast that he is considering running for mayor of the capital town.

If this happens, he will slug it out with Bongalonta.

Preventive suspension


In the complaint-affidavit that will be filed with the Sangguniang Pananawigan, Berina prays for the issuance of a Preventive Suspension against Mayor Tomas B. Bongalonta, Jr., and respondent barangay Kagawad David O. Olaguera, pursuant to Art. 127, Rule XIX of the Rules and Regulations implementing the Local Government Code of 1991.

If after due hearing on the merits, and the respondents are found guilty as charged, the most proper disciplinary action for each of the offenses of Gross Negligence, Serious Dishonesty, Grave Misconduct and Conduct Prejudicial to the best interest of the service, as may be determined by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan.

THE SUNNY PHILOSOPHER | The man, Lito Tuanqui

A COUPLE of times, I chanced upon Lito Tuanqui at the Estevez Memorial Hospital in Legaspi City.


Accompanied by his wife, he was there to see his doctor. I was there to see mine. Both of us are seniors, going through small pains in the body once in a while.

The small pains are normal, part of the aging process. Lito and I have the antidote. We look at the pleasant side of life: watching the beautiful sunset, listening to the cry of songbird, savouring the gentle touch of a sea breeze.

Call it living full life. When you make use of your senses – hearing, sight, smell, touch, taste – which God has given you, you avail yourself of a part of paradise which others have ignored.

The most precious things in life are free. They are there for the taking. The lovely sunset, the giant waves pounding the surf creating light mist around, the chirping of birds, these are free gifts of nature. Their effects on people are hypnotic.

When I was 4th year high school in the Bicol town of Caramoan, our history teacher, Mr. Culvera shared with us secrets for slow aging and long life.

“If you want to stay young as late as ever, look for something beautiful everyday either a peaceful mountain lake, dancing flowers during windy days, clouds sailing like galleons in the sky on moonlit nights, “he added.

To us, dreamy eyed youngsters, his words were full with wisdom.

Of the life lessons that I learned from our high school teachers, it is this that has stayed with me. Despite my years, I could feel most of the vigor in my youth would not desert me.

Lito seems to have his own secrets for an enjoyable life. Each time we meet at our favourite coffee shop, he is there smiling. It is as if he is there in a perfect world; no worries, no sickness, no pains.

But despite his benign appearance, he is tough inside. He had fought against the nasty naming of roads and bridges. He lost some, he won some. To him, it was a good fight.

Hen Governor Forbes Street was renamed Don B. Erquiaga Street in honor of a pioneer educator in Legaspi City, Lito rejoiced. He was one of those who fought for the change of name. Don Erquiaga was the founder of Legaspi College, now Aquinas University.

A former vice governor who once led the Albay Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Lito describes himself as a good governance advocate and history enthusiast. I describe him as a gentleman and model citizen.

When I had the final defense of my case study on the life of an informal settler in Legaspi City, I invited Lito as panellist, he being familiar with the problems of slum dwellers as Albay vice governor.

Lito comes from an illustrious clan in Albay third district. He is the grandson of Gov. Rufino Tuanqui whose ancestor, Simon Li Tuanqui, was a successful trader-philantropist.

Respect our flag -- City Director Munez

NAGA CITY—“Policemen will be assigned starting Monday next week to enforce the law which requires every Filipino to give due respect to our flag.”


This was the statement issued by City Police Director Sr. Supt. Julius C. Munez, after the flag raising ceremony yesterday.

He said that he had observed the growing number of citizens who have completely ignored giving respect to the National Flag during the singing of the National Anthem.

“Hindi na nga sila humihinto kahit kinakanta ang Pambansang Awit. An mga sasakyan tuloy-tuloy lang ang takbo na walang pakialam,” said Munez while pointing at the vehicles in the street.

He said that he has instructed the police strictly enforce the law on the matter.

“Mananagot sila sa batas kun hindi nila susundin ito,” he clarified further.

Republic Act 2491, which prescribes the code of the National Flag, Anthem, provides that during the flag-raising ceremony, everybody is mandated to stand facing the flag. At the moment the first note of the anthem is played, everyone in the premises shall come to attention; moving vehicles shall stop, the law reads.

Meanwhile, violators of the law shall upon conviction be punished by a fine of not less than Five thousand pesos (P5,000.00) not more than Twenty thousand pesos (P20,000.00, or by imprisonment for not more than one (1) year, or both such fine and imprisonment at the discretion of the court.

Mayor Cruz decries SB’s inaction of 2017 budget

PAMPLONA, CSur—Town Mayor Ace Cruz today said that until now he does not see the possibility that their annual budget would be approved by the Sangguniang Bayan, headed by Vice Mayor Gemino Imperial.

Bicol Standard exclusive video by Oscar Esmenda

In an interview by BICOL STANDARD, Cruz emphasized that he had submitted his executive budget on November 4, 2016, and was received on the same day by the Sangguiang Bayan Secretary.

“I am surprised that until now, I have not even received a word, recommendation or findings regarding our budget. It is very important for the smooth operation of our town. I remember before, when I was still a councilor, that once the annual budget is submitted to us, it only takes about 2 months before it is approved,” he said.

Mayor Cruz has recommended an annual budget of P106,108,449.00 for this year. Included in the said budget, under the Economic Development Fund (EDF) are the allocations for four (4) covered courts for Barangays San Gabriel, Tambo, Veneracion and Salvacion.

The chief executive emphasized that if the annual budget is not approved, their social services will be seriously affected.

“The budget for burial assistance, medical assistance, scholarship, transportation assistance for those in dire need of help will all be hampered,” he said.

“Our water rationing program in the river barangays will also be affected, since as of now there are only four (4) drivers who are assigned to the vital program,” he added.

Meanwhile, sensing the possibility that his problem would further escalate due to political reasons, Mayor Cruz said that he had brought this matter to the attention of the Office of the President of the Philippines.

“I believe that there is a grand design that the Sangguniang Bayan will not approve our 2017 annual budget. I am anticipating this to happen because they are very partisan in this regard. They they belong to the other side of the political camp and their objective perhaps is to paralyze my administration,” he narrated.

Mayor Cruz clarified that he has made many attempts to talk to Vice Mayor Imperial to solve this impasse, but was allegedly not given any chance. (With report from Oscar Esmenda)

Fuel price war

NAGA CITY— The on-going price war among gasoline retailers here has substantially benefited the local consumers, according to Rey “Ninong” Fusingan, owner of a gas station, in an interview by the BICOL STANDARD.

Rey Fusingan, who owns Petron Sipocot franchise, has mixed feelings about the ongoing price war in the sale of petroleum products. While his markup has been affected by said price war, somehow he feels that it would greatly benefit his clients who patronize his gas station in Barangay Tara, Sipocot, Camarines Sur. (Photo: Jojo Colasito)
Fusingan said local competition has compelled him to sell his petroleum products cheaper by one peso per liter, as compared to the pump prices in Naga City today.

“This is the essence of price deregulation. But this will only happen if there is true competition, or as long as the gasoline dealers do not connive with each other,” a passenger jeepney driver said.

In the same interview, Fusingan explained that almost all gasoline dealers buy their supply from the depot in Pasacao, Camarines Sur. This means that if there is no stiff competition in their business, they could impose a pump price that is very similar, if not entirely the same, Fusingan added.

Meanwhile, he related in the same interview that one of his business competitors, Fuel Save, has been selling crude oil and gasoline at least P1.00 cheaper than the price in Naga City.

“If I do not sell my product at the same price, I will lose my clients”, he added.

He further explained that he was, however, given a special price by his supplier, which is why he could complete without experiencing business losses.

At press time, he said that his pump price for diesel is P29.70 per liter, while for gasoline (extra) is P43.85.

Compared to the pump price in Naga City, Shell sells its diesel fuel at 30.85, premium gasoline at P40.05 and unleaded at P44.05.

Petron Gas Station in Naga City sells diesel fuel at P30.85, premium gasoline at P44.95 and unleaded at P43, 95.

If the selling price of crude oil in Sipocot is compared to the price in Naga City, there is a difference of P1.15 per liter.

It, however, affects tremendously his margin of profit, he finally declared.
