MAASIN CITY – The Southern Leyte provincial government on Monday filed a case of illegal sand and gravel(SAG)extraction against two personnel of a crushing plant and several crew members of a barge believed to be used in transporting “illegally” extracted materials.

Accompanied by elements of the Phil. Army and several policemen,  Southern Leyte Gov. Roger Mercado apprehended the suspects on Friday at a sand and gravel crushing plant in Concepcion village along the massive Subang Daku river in Sogod town.

The suspects were placed under the custody of the Maasin City police office.

By Marcelo M. Pedalino

LIBAGON, Southern Leyte, (PIA)  --  Nearly two hundred business-minded individuals coming from different places in the province gathered here over the weekend for the first provincial micro, small, medium enterprise (MSME) entrepreneur summit.

Among the many lectures and sharing of experience from various speakers, the participants got one more important message:  make use of next year’s unified ASEAN market for expansion of your goods and services.

The exhortation came from Rey Calooy, the Vice-Mayor of this town, who confessed to be more comfortable being with entrepreneurs like him than in company with politicians.

The Marcoses never really left home

(From left) Gov. Imee Marcos, Rep. Imelda Marcos, and Senator Bongbong Marcos: They never really left. INQUIRER FILE PHOTOS

Editor's Note:  Starting Sept. 21, the 42nd anniversary of the proclamation of martial law by President Ferdinand Marcos, we have been running a series of articles to remember one of the darkest chapters in Philippine history. The articles are necessarily commemorations and more so a celebration of and a thanksgiving for the courage of the men and women who endured unspeakable pain and loss to overcome the Marcos dictatorship and regain our freedoms. These are some of their stories.

When the Marcoses fled Malacañang in 1986, many Filipinos heaved a sigh of relief, thinking they were gone for good.

Now 28 years later, the Marcoses are parked at the very doorstep of Malacañang, with the dictator Ferdinand Marcos' only son and namesake being groomed to retake the Palace come 2016.

Ferdinand Jr. (Bongbong) is a senator eyeing the presidency; his sister Imelda Jr. (Imee) is governor of their northern stronghold; their mother Imelda is a congresswoman; and their late dictator-dad turned into a saintly-looking icon like the dead Pope that is miraculously preserved inside St. Peter's Cathedral in the Vatican.

Sen Marcos Bill to benefit retiring bgy. officials

September 26, 2014

MAASIN CITY – Retiring barangay officials including its workers stand to benefit from Senator Ferdinand Marcos’ bill in the senate which the senator said already passed in the committee level.

The senator who “gate crashed” at the first Southern Leyte tourism summit held at Lourdes convention center here in the city on Friday, told tourism stakeholders including LGU officials on the side about his bill (SBN 12) an act providing retirement benefits to Barangay officials and barangay workers.

“I am optimistic that the Bill will be passed in the Senate considering that 11 senators have co-authored my bill after I submitted my committee report.”

He said in jest that in the Senate they now have a different mathematics. “We are supposed to be 24 members but three are on vacation and another is on medical leave. With the 11 senators as co-authors we are already the majority.”

Marcos said that included in Bill is the provision of Philhealth for every member of the family of the barangay officials.

“In the House, they have a similar Bill but different provisions. But with the prodding of LGU officials to their representatives I think this will become a law.”

He said “It’s about to return the favor to the hapless barangay officials and workers who are only receiving honoraria but if without them there will be no government because they are the ones who will deliver the basic needs of our people.”

With the Bill, village chiefs stand to receive P100,000 cash benefits if they have completed their three terms, so with barangay kagawads, P80,000 and other workers like tanods, BHW and other barangay workers stand to receive from P30,000 to P50,000.

By JANI ARNAIZ

MAASIN CITY, Southern Leyte—Rescue teams are searching for passengers and crew of MV Maharlika 2 which sank in the waters between Surigao and Panaon Island, San Ricardo town, Southern Leyte about 9:30 p.m. Saturday.

As of 10:54 p.m., 18 passengers have been rescued, said Lieutenant Commander Glen Pacheco, officer-in-charge of Maasin Coast Guard.

He said 32 passengers, 2 of them children, and 26 crew were on board the passenger vessel owned by Philharbor Ferries and Port Services when it left Lipata, Surigao City about 1 p.m.

It was scheduled to dock in Liloan town in Southern Leyte at 5 p.m.

Pacheco said the vessel may have been slowed down by rough  seas and big waves spawned by Typhoon “Luis.”

When the MV Maharlika 2 was between Surigao and Panaon Island, Pacheco said vessel skipper identified as Juan Cayago was able to declare abandon ship before the vessel sank.

Rescue teams from Southern Leyte and Surigao are now conducting the search to rescue the passengers and crew.
