NAGA CITY 2/28/17 (Bicol Standard)—An ordinance to create a task force that shall monitor HIV/AIDS cases and Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) in this city has been proposed by Councilor Jose C. Rañola.

Said task force, according to the ordinance, will also conduct surveillance to ensure protection of minor children against HIV/AIDS through possible involvement in sex trade.

The proposal is in light of the recent findings that Naga City has the highest number of HIV/AIDS cases in Camarines Sur from 1984 to November 2016.

According to the Department of Health Regional Office V, Naga City recorded 15 HIV/AIDS cases.

Next on the list is Magarao, which has 4 cases.

Nabua, Libmanan, Tigaon, and Iriga City have 3 cases each.

Minalabac, Bato, Pasacao, and Ragay recorded 2 cases each.

Meantime, Cabusao, Canaman, Ocampo, Pamplona, and Pili have 1 case each.

Archdiocese of Caceres spearheads anti-EJK, anti-death penalty campaign


On March 1, 2017, 4PM, at the Cathedral Patio, our beloved Archbishop of Caceres will lead the Via Crucis, with the theme “An Dalan Kan Cruz ni Cristo: Burabod nin Pagbabago sa Parokya.”
As we pray for our parishes, we contemplate on Christ’s passion as He carried the cross and walked to His crucifixion.

As Filipino Catholics, we are called to bring the Gospel to society, and society to God. In the midst of the challenges in our country today, let us join the Via Crucis fervent in prayer, fueled by our love for our country, firm in our desire for justice and fully aware that peace cannot coexist with terror and tyranny.

In an effort to make our voices be heard, statement shirts that proclaim the value of life are available at St. Paul Media Center, St Jude Parish - Naga City, and Ateneo de Naga University Press. We encourage everyone who will make the Way of the Cross on March 1 to wear the shirt as a vote for life and against killings and death penalty. Those who cannot wear the statement shirt, please wear any white or black shirt.

The Via Crucis is an expression of self-giving as Christ suffered and died for our sins. Our collective prayer on March 1 declares our openness to follow Christ’s example and to take up our own cross so our country will receive “the Word which redeems, the Blood which purifies, and the Spirit which gives life.”

Let us pray for our parishes so they may be instruments of conversion. Let us also pray for our own conversion so we may be worthy disciples of Christ. Let our voices be heard.

Youth urged to register for SK polls

MANILA 2/27/17 -- Raising concern over the reported low turnout of voter registrants for the Sangguniang Kabataan (youth) elections, a Senator on Monday urged the youth to register to boost its turnout before registration ends on April 29.

“Now, more than ever, we must speak out, we must participate in electing our leaders,” Sen. Paolo Benigno Aquino IV, former chair of the Committee on Youth said.

Aquino made the call after the Commission on Elections (Comelec) reported a low turnout of registrants, which number just 193,229 from January to February 10 this year.

He said the Comelec is expecting six million new voters (two million regular-aged voters, and four million youth) before registration ends. The SK and barangay elections will be held simultaneously on Oct. 23, 2017.

SK Reform Act

Aquino, as former chair of the Committee on Youth pushed for passage of Republic Act No. 10742 or the SK Reform Act as co-author and co-sponsor in the 16th Congress.

The SK Reform Act, which is the first law with an anti-dynasty provision, prohibits relatives of elected officials up to second civil degree of consanguinity or affinity from seeking SK posts.

It also adjusts age limit of SK officials from 15 to 17 to 18 to 24 years old, making them legally capable of entering into contracts and be held accountable and liable for their actions.

SK officials will now be required to undergo leadership training programs to expose them to the best practices in governance and guide their development as leaders. (PNA)

Drug lab query continues

Committee on Dangerous Drugs points to more inconsistencies

VIRAC, Catanduanes 2/27/17 (Bicol Standard)—The House Committee on Dangerous Drugs is bent on conducting a deeper probe into the alleged seeming negligence by the police and local officials here that led to the escape of four Chinese nationals believed to be involved in the operation of the mega shabu laboratory in Barangay Palta Small here.

The congressional inquiry held last week (February 23) centered on the alleged failure on the part of the police to report at least 20 kilos of shabu with a street value of P100 million.

Also, the Committee pointed at the supposed delaying of the issuance of a search warrant which was necessary for a thorough police investigation.

‘No missing shabu’

Interviewed by the Bicol Standard, Police Chief Supt. Melvin Buenafe responded to the allegations that there was missing shabu, or that the police failed to make a report on the matter.

“There is no missing shabu. The committee was asking about it based on the report or presentation made whereby it was declared that it is with the crime lab that has custody. And all these are in our reports," he said.

"Kaipohan tulos makapag file para sa inquest proceedings katong arrested na suspects under custody, kaya ginamit nindang evidence muna su finished product na shabu at hand tanganing dai ma-jeopardize si pag sangat kaso, kaya dawa dai pa na-examine gabos, such as the met-base liquid na sinasabing pwedeng nag-aabot P100 million an value, ipina-file na muna si kaso ta may reglementary period na sinusunod," explained Buenafe.

Protection, deception?

During the hearing, Barbers expressed his suspicion that the Chinese nationals who were led by one Jason Gonzales Uy and three Chinese chemists were being accorded protection by authorities from Catanduanes.

The solon emphasized that the mega shabu lab was constructed without the appropriate barangay and town permits.

It was also unusual, Barbers said, that the local electric cooperative extended power connections even without the shabu lab operators first presenting clearance from the local Bureau of Fire Protection.

Likewise, it was strange that the shabu lab was constructed and even started operation without being noticed by the police and local officials, he noted.

Cong. Barbers and Teves were further irked by the seeming deception made by Judge Lelu Contreras about her prior presence at the shabu lab.

It was only when local media personalities presented a picture of her together with Mayor Samuel Laynes and Chief Supt. Buenafe indicating that they were in the shabu lab prior to her signing of the search warrant.

Her alibi was that she was just outside the building and did not enter the shabu lab, Barbers and Teves added.

Meanwhile, Provincial Prosecutor Mary Jane Zantua was also quizzed by the House Committee members.

This was after she ordered the police officers to prevent the members of the investigating committee to enter the lab to conduct their own ocular inspection on February 23.

Despite said order of Zantua, the lawmakers were able to enter after a delay of more than an hour.

Zantua reasoned out that her only intention was to preserve the evidence inside the lab, brushing aside insinuations that somebody called her up and ordered to stop the lawmakers from entering the premises.

Armed men

The Barbers group vowed to dig deeper into the report that at least eight heavily armed men wearing bonnets and hoods allegedly claimed to be members of the NBI harassed the shabu lab caretaker Lawrence Pinera on November 25, 2016, several hours before the police raid.

In addition, they would like to clarify the veracity of the information that the armed men could have escorted or paved the way for the escape of suspects Jason Uy and three Chinese chemists.

At present, only Lawrence Pinera, the caretaker of the warehouse, is in the custody of the government and charged with violations of Republic Act 9165.

Jason Gonzales Uy and Paolo Uy remain at large.

Mandatory 'citizen service training' for college students eyed

MANILA 2/27/17 -- A bill has been filed in the Senate seeking for the mandatory training of Filipino college students in tasks related to national defense, law enforcement, and disaster risk reduction and management.

Under Senate Bill 1322, Senate Pres. Aquilino Pimentel III called for the establishment of a Citizen Service Training Course for their possible mobilization in the service of the nation during times of emergencies and contingencies in the form of natural and man-made calamities and external and internal security threats.

Also called the Citizen Service Act, the bill proposes a mandatory Basic Citizen Service Training Course (Basic CSTC) which will form part of the curricula of all baccalaureate degree courses and all technical vocational courses that require at least two years to complete.

Moreover, the bill also seeks the establishment of a Citizen Service Mobilization Commission (CSMC) which will administer the program.

The Basic CTSC course would be completed over four semesters in the first two years of all baccalaureate degrees and vocational and technical courses and will be a requisite for graduation. (PNA)

Elizabeth Oropesa
NAGA CITY 2/27/17 (Bicol Standard)--Bicolana actress Elizabeth Oropesa has issued a scathing reaction to Jim Paredes' tiff with a young Duterte supporter during 31st EDSA Day celebration at the People Power Monument.

Oropesa is a staunch supporter of President Duterte.

It would be recalled that Paredes had a verbal tussle with a member of Duterte Youth during said event.

Paredes was quoted as having told said youth, "Look at me! Look at me, ha! Deny your conscience, look at me. Di ka makatingin ano? You can't even look. Duwag!"

BAYAN-Bicol issues statement on transport strike


SA BIKOL : 1500 na Driver at Operator ng Jeepney ang Kumasa pwera pa ang Bus,Tricycle at Van, 90% paralysis ang inaasahan Bukas!

Sistematikong pagpatay sa kabuhayan ng humigit-kumulang sa 650,000 mga drayber at 200,000 maliliit na operaytor ang planong jeepney phase-out ng rehimeng Duterte upang bigyan-kasiyahan ang matinding pagnanasa sa limpak-limpak na tubo ng mga dayuhan at malalaking korporasyon sa transportasyon sa ating bansa sa tabing ng panukalang Jeepeney Modernization Program. Sa planong ito, aagawin sa mga drayber at operaytor ang pangmasang serbisyo ng mga jeepeney na deka-dekadang naglilingkod sa mga mananakay na publiko upang isailalim sa kontrol at monopolyo ng malalaking kapitalista. Bunga ito ng sabwatan ng mga dayuhang kapitalista, malalaking burgesya-kumprador at burukrata-kapitalista na nakangkla sa imperyalismong globalisasyong patakarang neoliberal, na matapat namang isinusulong ng kanilang mga galamay sa gabinete ni Pangulong Duterte at ng reaksyunaryong Lehislatura.

Ang Jeepney Modernization Program diumano ang solusyon sa problema sa matinding trapik sa Metro Manila at sa highly urbanized centers. Ang mga jeepney ang isa sa mga nakikitang dahelan ng Gobyerno na sanhi di-umano ng matinding trapik. Kailangan daw alisin nasa kalsada ang mga lumang jeep na hindi bababa sa 15 taon na ang edad at dapat palitan ng bagong moda at makakalikasang jeepney na aprobado ng Gobyerno. Ang ipapalit ay electric jeepney o e-jeepney at Euro 4 engine na gawa sa ibang bansa. Ang jeepney, prangkisa at maging ang kita ng mga manggagawa sa transportasyon ay isasailalim din sa kontrol ng malalaking negosyante ayon sa eskemang tinatawag na fleet management. Ang buong sistema ng pampublikong transportasyon ay magiging monopolyo ng malalaking negosyo. Hindi garantiya na kung malalaking negosyo ang hahawak sa pampublikong transportasyon bubuti ang serbisyo, ligtas ang mga sasakay at bababa ang pamasahe. Kabalintunaan ito dahil sa karanasan natin sa palpak na serbisyo ng MRT at LRT sa ilalim ng pribatisasyon sa operasyon ng mga ito. Mas lalong tataas ang singil sa pamasahe dahil sa patuloy na pagtaas ng singil sa kuryente at presyo ng petrolyo na magiging dagdag na pasanin pa ng hikahos na mamamayan.

Totoong kailangan ang moderno, episyente, makakaliksan, abot-kayang pangmasang transportasyon na hindi isinasakripisyo ang interes at kapakanan ng mga tsuper, maliliit na operaytor at riding public. Ang kailangan ay isang pangmasang transportasyon na nasa kontrol ng Gobyerno at hindi monopolisado ng dayuhan at malalaking negosyo, na ang motibo ay serbisyo hindi tubo. Magkakaroon lamang ito ng katuparan kung mayroong pambansang industriyalisasyon.

Sa halip na jeepney phase-out, jeepney rehabilition ang gawin. Tulungan ng Gobyerno na maging environment-friendly at mas mapabuti ang serbisyo ng kasalukuyang ipinapasadang mga jeep.

Higit na kailangang ituloy ang GPH-NDFP Peace talks upang makompleto at maisapinal ang Comprehensive Agreement on Socio-Economic Reforms (CASER) na siyang hahawan sa daan tungo sa pambansang industriyalisasyon kakambal ang tunay na repormang agraryo na batayang pundasyon sa pag-unlad ng pambansang ekonomiya; magwawakas sa pananalasa ng neoliberalismo sa ekonomiya; magsusulong ng episyente, pangmasa, makakalikasan, abot-kayang pampublikong sistemang transportasyon.

Tutulan, Labanan ang jeepney phase-out!

Ibasura ang Jeepney Modernization Program na nakaangkla sa patakarang neoliberalismo.

Ilantad at kondenahin ang sabwatan ng mga dayuhang korporasyon, malalaking burgesya kumprador, burukrata-kapitalista sa Gobyerno at mga dilawang lider sa transportasyon na naghahangad ng limpak na ganansya sa jeepney phase out.

Suportahan ang kampanya upang itulak ang rehimeng Duterte na ituloy ang GPH-NDFP Peacetalks.

Legazpi City tops LGU-sponsored PhilHealth card holders in Albay

LEGAZPI CITY – The share of local government unit (LGU)-sponsored beneficiaries of the Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) in Albay has sharply increased in 2016, said a Philhealth official in the province.

Darlene L. Nuyles, acting head of the agency’s Local Health Insurance Office (LHIO) in Albay, cited in particular the case of Legazpi City which gave 4,407 impoverished residents in the city’s 70 villages access to the government’s universal health care program.

“There was a ‘boom’ in Legazpi’s sponsorship of beneficiaries during last year’s period,” she said.

According to Daisy Jane Daet, who monitors the records of LHIO-Albay, Legazpi’s beneficiaries accounted for 45 percent of the nearly 10,000 total number of LGU-sponsored beneficiaries in the province’s three cities (Legazpi, Ligao and Tabaco) and 15 towns as of November 30, 2016.

She said the total sponsored beneficiaries in the 18 LGUs in Albay reached 9,738 as of that period.

Daet said Tabaco City was second with 1,703 while Daraga town was third with 1,544 who were PhilHealth access card holders.

Nuyles said the increased membership to the national health insurance program in various communities due to LGU sponsorship augurs well for Philhealth, which has turned 22 years old this month of February, that is also celebrated as National Health Insurance month. (by Gina V. Rodriguez, PNA)

Bigger prizes, new events in Masbate’s rodeo festival

MASBATE CITY—Officials behind the annual rodeo festival in this city have bared details of the event scheduled from March 23 to April 23, as they expect an increase in the number of visitors, especially during the grand rodeo finals on April 18-22, when more exciting events and bigger prizes await participants.

O.R. Espares, a member of the Rodeo Masbateño Inc. (RMI), which oversees conduct of the festival, said 30 teams coming from Benguet, Ilocos region, the Visayas and mainland Bicol are expected to join the rodeo finals.

He said the grand rodeo finals will include bull whipping, load carrying relay, cattle wrestling on foot, cattle wrestling from horseback, cattle lassoing from horseback, carambola that usually involves two to four persons capturing a bull with bare hands, casting down and bull riding.

“The other rodeo highlights are cattle drive or ‘pasuag,’ cattle horse penning and street dancing,” said Espares.

RMI President Judge Manuel L. Sese said a herd of 150 heads of cow, which will be let loose during the cattle drive at the main street of the city, will be driven by cowboys to the arena.

He said after the drive called “Wigo de Toro,” the most exciting and risky part of the event will follow in which several heads of wild junior and senior bulls will be released at main thorougfares in the city with participants required to register to be able to join the race.

Sese said the heads of cattle, which cost from PHP35,000 to PHP40,000 each, will be given by the provincial government to those who could catch them. “They can take the cattle home.”

Governor Antonio T. Kho initiated more interesting rodeo events this year by increasing the prizes and adding gears to the event.

He said bulls should only be caught or wrestled but not slaughtered.

“A certificate of registration for each of the cattle will automatically be transferred to the lucky players,” said Kho.

Sese thanked the governor for increasing the prizes as he acknowledged the PHP3 million donation of the Masbate provincial government while the Masbate City government and Filminera Resources Corp. gave cash donations of PHP300,000 each and DMCI PHP200,000.

RMI member Socci Tuason there will be carnival rides for the month-long festivities.

“There will be other entertaining activities such as the rodeo saloon or beer plaza, Palabas sa Social Center, garden show, façade dress-up contest, final judging, beef cooking and the awarding and farewell party,” she said.

Tuason said there will be a grand horse parade during the opening program of the rodeo finals on April 18-22.

“Every night during the rodeo finals there will be a governor’s welcome night, city mayor’s night, Filminera’s night, search for Miss Rodeo Cowgay 2017, festival of festivals and the search for Miss Rodeo 2017 which will be capped with a grand fireworks display,” she said.

Tuason acknowledged the support being given by the Rodeo Net, Rotary Club, Red Cross and other partners to make the festival successful.

Judge Igmedio Camposano, an RMI member, said they have announced details of the event this early so visitors could prepare their schedules, bookings and reservations for the festival. (PNA)

THE SUNNY PHILOSOPHER by Salvador D. Flor, Ph. D. | Your shrinking world

THERE was a time in the remote past when this planet appeared as limitless as a huge ball of creation, inhabited by a few hundred souls. The Bible tells us that it started with one man and one woman – Adam and Eve – enjoying life together in the company of furred and feathered friends.

From them came our ancestors, spreading far and wide.

The seven continents were separated by oceans and thee few early inhabitants were scattered all over the planet. They did not dream that a day would come when they could talk face to face even they were miles apart.

The magic of technology was unheard then.

In those olden times, crossing the coastal seas was full with danger. The oceans, particularly, teemed with monsters making breakfast of unfortunate seafarers straying into their lairs, according to stories of ancient mariners.

There was this ghost ship sailing the ocean with tattered masts and broken down hulls and manned by men long reported dead told in mariner’s storybook.

Another story tells of a terribly lonely youth who prayed to his gods, ‘ye gods, annihilate both space and time and make two lovers happy.” His girl was at the other side of the ocean, too far for him to passionately kiss.

In the youth’s era, travel was fraught with much peril. Even in a much later time, it was hard and costly. Spanish ships coming to the Philippines during the days of Magellan had found the travel nightmarish.

It is not true anymore. It takes only days for an ocean liner to safely cross the ocean. And it takes only a few seconds to keep in touch with someone at the other side of the globe.

There is the story of two brothers published in the Reader’s Digest who kept in touch although separated by oceans. They did it by each recording his thoughts and feelings in a tape recorder and sending the tapes to each other.

In the ‘60s, it was hard to get a short message to someone far away. When I was in Palanan, Isabela employed by a logging firm, I received a letter from an uncle in Caramoan, Camarines Sur almost two months after it was mailed.

Send by ordinary mail, it brought bad news: the death of my Lolo. I howled with grief upon reaching the boarding house to ease the pain of losing him.

Today, you do not need to write a letter. A text travels faster than sound.

My seaman-son almost nightly would make a call from his ship in Europe or Africa to tell us of new friends in his ship’s ports of call, his work, his fellow seafarers.

My 9-year-old niece, Kate, in the Middle East would nightly regale us with stories of her school life, her foreign classmates, her twin sister, Sophie and her one-year old sister, Victoria.

The world has become a village.


CASE IN POINT by Dean Ed Vincent Albano | Real action: Within the jurisdiction of the MTC or RTC

In Sps. Trayvilla v. Sejas, et al., G.R. No. 204970, February 1, 2016, Del Castillo, J, an action for specific performance with prayer for reconveyance of a property was filed, but the complaint did not allege the assessed value of the property. But the declaration in the Amended Complaint stated that the property is valued at P6,000.00 based on the handwritten document sued upon and the pleadings indicated that the property was purchased for the price of P6,000.00. The relevance of the said alleged value of the property was the subject that the SC discussed where it was

Held: The action is one for specific performance. In other words, the aim is to secure the claimed ownership and title to the property which qualified it as a real action.

Pursuant to Section 1, Rule 4 of the 1997 Rules of Civil Procedure, a real action is one that affects title to or possession of real property, or an interest therein.

Since the action is a real action, petitioners should have observed the requirement under A.M. No. 04-2-04-SC28 relative to declaring the fair market value of the property as stated in the current tax declaration or zonal valuation of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR). Since no such allegation was made in the Amended Complaint, then the value of the subject property as stated in the handwritten document sued upon and restated in the Amended Complaint should be the basis for determining jurisdiction and the amount of docket fees to be paid.

In the absence of the required declaration of the fair market value as stated in the current tax declaration or zonal valuation of the property, it cannot be determined whether the RTC or first level court has original and exclusive jurisdiction over the petitioners’ action, since the jurisdiction of these courts is determined on the basis of the value of the property.

Jurisdiction of RTCs, as may be relevant to the instant petition, is provided in Sec. 19 of BP 129, which reads:

2) In all civil actions which involve the title to, or possession of, real property, or any interest therein, where the assessed value of the property involved exceeds Twenty thousand pesos (P20,000.00) or, for civil actions in Metro Manila, where such value exceeds Fifty thousand pesos (P50,000.00) except actions for forcible entry into and unlawful detainer of lands or buildings, original jurisdiction over which is conferred upon the Metropolitan Trial Courts, Municipal Trial Courts, and Municipal Circuit Trial Courts.

On the other hand, jurisdiction of first level courts is prescribed in Sec. 33 of BP 129, which provides:

Sec. 33. Jurisdiction of Metropolitan Trial Courts, Municipal Trial Courts and Municipal Circuit Trial Courts in civil cases. Metropolitan Trial Courts, Municipal Trial Courts, and Municipal Circuit Trial Courts shall exercise:

x x x x

3) Exclusive original jurisdiction in all civil actions which involve title to, or possession of, real property, or any interest therein where the assessed value of the property or interest therein does not exceed Twenty thousand pesos (P20,000.00) or, in civil actions in Metro Manila, where such assessed value does not exceed Fifty thousand pesos (P50,000.00) exclusive of interest, damages of whatever kind, attorney’s fees, litigation expenses and costs: Provided, That in cases of land not declared for taxation purposes, the value of such property shall be determined by the assessed value of the adjacent lots.

In determining jurisdiction, the Court can rely on the declaration made in the Amended Complaint that the property is valued at P6,000,00. The handwritten document sued upon and the pleadings indicate that the property was purchased by petitioners for the price of P6,000.00. For purposes of filing the civil case against respondents, this amount should be the stated value of the property in the absence of a current tax declaration or zonal valuation of the BIR. Rule 141 of the Rules of Court, as amended by A.M. No. 04-2-04-SC and Supreme Court Amended Administrative Circular No. 35-2004, provides that –

a) For filing an action or a permissive OR COMPULSORY counterclaim, CROSS-CLAIM, or money claim against an estate not based on judgment, or for filing a third-party, fourth-party, etc. complaint, or a complaint-in-intervention, if the total sum claimed, INCLUSIVE OF INTERESTS, PENALTIES, SURCHARGES, DAMAGES OF WHATEVER KIND, AND ATTORNEY'S FEES, LITIGATION EXPENSES AND COSTS and/or in cases involving property, the FAIR MARKET value of the REAL property in litigation STATED IN THE CURRENT TAX DECLARATION OR CURRENT ZONAL VALUATION OF THE BUREAU OF INTERNAL REVENUE, WHICHEVER IS HIGHER, OR IF THERE IS NONE, THE STATED VALUE OF THE PROPERTY IN LITIGATION OR THE VALUE OF THE PERSONAL PROPERTY IN LITIGATION AS ALLEGED BY THE CLAIMANT shall be the basis for the computation of the docket fees to be paid. Since the value of the subject property as stated in the Amended Complaint is just P6,000.00, then the RTC did not have jurisdiction over petitioners' case in the first instance; it should have dismissed the case. But it did not. In continuing to take cognizance of the case, the trial court clearly committed grave abuse of discretion.

GENTLE BREEZE by Atty. Nelly F. Villafuerte | Seven is God's favorite number

Unbelievable but true… seven is God’s favorite number. The proof? The Holy Bible. Throughout the Bible (from Genesis to Revelation) the number seven appears many times. Seven is used 735 times in the Holy Bible. In the Book of Revelation, seven is used 54 times. The word “seventh” is used 98 times while the word “seven-fold” appears seven times. Also the word “seventy” is used 56 times. And in the Book of Genesis (which starts with the story of creation), the word “created” is used seven times to highlight God’s creative work. After God created all things in the beginning for six (6) days. He rested on the seventh day. From the Book of Genesis, we see that God introduced the concept of seven days a week.

* * *

Let me share some instances in the Holy Bible where the number seven mentioned:
· In the Book of Revelation, the last Book of the Holy Bible, there is mention of seven churches, seven angels, seven spirits, seven stars, seven seals, seven trumpets, seven thunders, and seven last plagues;
· In the Book of Genesis: - God rested on the seventh day; Noah took the clean beasts into the ark by sevens; and seven days after Noah went into the ark, the floods came;
· In the Book of Jeremiah 25:11-12, the Israelites were exiled in Babylon for seventy years;
· In Matthew 18:21-22, Jesus said to forgive seventy times seven;
· In Joshua 6:1-16, God told the Israelites to march around Jericho seven times before the walls of Jericho collapsed on the seventh day. From biblical account, we see also seven priests blowing seven trumpets of ram’s horns before the walls of Jericho collapsed;
· In the Book of Leviticus (see Chapter 23:1-44), there is mention of the seven feast days of the Lord (Pass over, Unleavened, First-fruits, Pentecost, Atonement, Trumpets and Tabernacle);
· In the Book of Luke 8:2, we see seven devils cast out of Mary Magdalene who was earlier possessed by satan;
· In the Book of Matthew 12:45, “seven other spirits” more wicked than a man entered his body. In Matthew 13, it is also mentioned that Jesus spoke to people through parables - seven parables;
· In the Book of Judges 16:13, Samson revealed to Delilah that his strength is in his hair. Mention is made of “seven locks” of his hair;
· In the Book of Leviticus 25:4, the “seventh year shall be a Sabbath of rest.”
The Holy Bible is replete with instances highlighting number seven and multiples of seven. The healing miracles that Jesus performed on a Sabbath day in the Book of Matthew, Chapter 5 amazingly totalled seven. It also took King Solomon seven years to build the temple. Remember the famine in Egypt during the days of Joseph? There were seven years of planting and seven years of famine.

* * *

Many bible scholars are perplexed why the Holy Bible is saturated with the number seven and with multiples of seven. Indeed, this is a biblical mathematical phenomenon that remains a mystery up to this day. As for me, I believe like other bible-believing Christians that God is just confirming his divine perfection.

* * *

Do you know that the cycle of sevens does not end in the Holy Bible? Not many of us know that even in our human body, the number seven comes to life. There are seven bones in the neck; seven bones in the face; seven bones in the ankles; and there are seven holes in our heads.
* * *

Hopefully, all of us will be encouraged and challenged to read the Holy Bible more often and discover many things that modern science and modern technology cannot explain. May I take this opportunity too to thank Mrs. Honorata T. Malonso, one of my readers who so generously donated Php5,000.00 for the blind children in Bicol. Please be assured, Ma’am, that all the amount will go to the food and partly for the rental of the place where the blind are staying.

Be joyful and forgiving! (Comments may be sent to Ms. Villafuerte’s email: villafuerte_nelly@yahoo.com.)

MNWD nixes Rangas River Mini Hydro Project

NAGA CITY 2/22/17 (Bicol Standard)—The Metro Naga Water District (MNWD) has appealed to DENR Sec. Gina Lopez to “closely look” into the controversial Rangas River Mini Hydro Project.

In a position paper that strongly opposes the project, it asked Lopez to “[reassess and re-evaluate] the application for renewal of the Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) of Clean n Green Solutions Incorporated for the proposed Rangas River Mini Hydro Power Plant and to review the Site Development Plan, particularly the location of the related structures and to disallow the cutting of trees and other destructive activities related to the project that will threaten the surrounding communities and indigenous/endemic species within the MINP.”

“Mount Isarog Natural Park (MINP) is considered to be a key diversity area which serves as natural habitat for different kinds of indigenous / endemic flora and fauna which can only be found within its confines, making it a primary area for conservation and protection to ensure environmental integrity,” said position paper reads.

It added that six towns and one city, including Pili, Ocampo, Tigaon, Goa, Calabanga, Tinambac and Naga City are dependent on its natural resources which are essential for agricultural, industrial and socio-economic growth.

“WHEREFORE, taking into consideration the foregoing premises, the MNWD Management and Board of Directors hereto strongly oppose the construction of Rangas River Mini Hydro Electric Dam due to its clear violations of the stipulated provisions of NIPAS Act of 1992 and its adverse effects to the MINP;

The on-going endeavour and undertaking being facilitated by the MNWD, partner agencies, institutions and other major stakeholders to conserve and rehabilitate the MINP as primary watershed of Camarines Sur will be put in jeopardy,” it further states.

SHABU LAB INQUIRY: House Committee on Drugs sets hearing in Catanduanes

VIRAC, Catanduanes 02/21/17 (BICOL STANDARD)--The scheduled congressional inquiry regarding the mega shabu lab that was uncovered here will be in aid of legislation, and not to malign anybody, especially the politicians here.

Courtesy: PRO5
This is the statement issued by the camp of Cong. Cesar Sarmiento in reaction to insinuations that he may be using the inquiry to besmirch the reputation of Gov. Joseph Cua.

Other camps believe that this is the opportunity for Cua to clear his name, which has come up in previous reports.

The probe was agreed upon by the members of the House Committee on Dangerous Drugs headed by Rep. Ace Barbers based on a house bill filed by Cong. Sarmiento.

Among the scheduled activities related to the said inquiry are the following: meeting with local government officials, briefing on the drug situation by regional PNP/AFP, ocular inspection of the shabu laboratory, and public hearing at the auditorium of Catanduanes State University.

The resource persons include represenatives from the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, Philippine National Police, National Bureau of Investigation, Armed Forces of the Philippines Region 5, Philippine Ports Authority Region 5, Philippine Coast Guard Region 5, Office of Transport Security, Land Transportation Authority, and the Maritime Industry Authority.

It will be recalled that the mega shabu lab was uncovered here on November 26, 2016 at Barangay Palta Small.

Both Gov. Cua and Mayor Samuel Laynes, whose names were mentioned in earlier reports, categorically denied knowledge or participation in the construction and operation of the shabu lab.

There were other persons who were named in the police report, including Jason Gonzales Uy and three unidentified Chinese men, who are all still at large.

The mega shabu laboratory was constructed in the property of a certain Sarah Sarmiento and leased by Angelica Balmadrid, who is allegedly the common-law wife of NBI Region 7 director, Atty. Eric Isidoro.
