Thus, these government agencies started their own investigation in the latter half of The DA noted effects of nickel laterite to irrigated farms in Bgy.

Cruz to see the effects of mining, especially to farmlands. Tubo-tubo Norte and saw the farms with nickel laterite. Complaints at the Sangguniang Panlalawigan Vice-Gov Lacbain, upon seeing the destruction of mining operations to farmlands welcomes the filing of complaints. This was done in November and the Sangguniang Panlalawigan SP invited the municipal and the barangay officials to attend one of the hearings which commenced in Januarybut except for one or two barangay officials, the rests did not attend.
The office of the mayor did not even bother to send any representative. At first, the SP passed a resolution endorsing the stoppage of the mining operations, but the Governor objected and advised the SP to conduct an investigation.
Thus, the SP formed a committee to evaluate the extent of the damage and compensation due to the farmers. Out of the 56 farmers who filed complained, only 30 were recommended compensation. Twenty-six peasants whose farms were partially damaged were not included. A resolution was passed by the SP recommending the compensation of the farmers whose farms were totally damaged. The CCOS objected and wrote to Director Jasareno asking for reconsideration to pay all damages, partial or total and provide amelioration fund to both damages.
We received no reply. Their findings showed that the ambient air has Total Suspended Particulates two 2 to three 3 times above the national standard stated in the Clean Air Act. Analysis of the top ten morbidities showed that cases of respiratory diseases like Bronchial Asthma and Bronchitis tripled since the mining companies started operations.
Skin allergies also increased as well as urinary tract infections. During the first quarter ofthe regional offices of the MGB and the EMB called a meeting aimed in finding solutions for the worsening environmental destruction brought about by the mining operations. They listened to our complaints and then asked the response of the mining companies. Finding no resolution to the problem, Director Uykieng proposed the formation of a Technical Working Group TWG to find solutions to abort environmental destruction.
Some civil society present, denied their participation outright while others requested from Director Uykieng the legal basis for the formation of the TWG. The following meeting conducted by the EMB delved more on the mitigating measures to reduce the TSPs in the ambient air approximating the national standard.
Thus, hauling procedures and mechanisms were discussed and agreed upon. However, a year after, the TSPs in the ambient air remained over the acceptable national standard. The haulers continue to violate the agreed hauling procedures and mechanisms. Environmental Destruction went from Bad to Worse in In August, typhoon Labuyo hit the northern part of Zambales and three 3 mining dams gave way. This flooded almost the whole town that the municipal government reported to the DSWD a higher number of affected population than the actual municipal population.
Thus, the municipal officer who brought the report to the regional office of the DSWD was scolded. My investigation on the over reporting revealed that in some barangays, there were families that were reported twice. When the double reporting was refused, the barangay officials insisted. The massive flooding was due to the destruction of three mining dams: The mining companies, particularly BNMI denied this, but the informants are willing to testify in any fora.

Aside from the affected population, the three 3 major rivers Alinsaog, Panalabawan and Cabaluan as well as hundreds of hectares of farms and hundreds of hectares of fishponds were buried with nickel laterite.

Naiinggit ako sa uncle kong magaling magdasal.

Kasalanan ko dahil ang alam ko ay bersiyong Aba Ginoong Maria. Ang pagdarasal sa wikang Ingles ang unang naging proud ako bilang Augusteener at higit sa lahat, ang sabayang pagbigkas nito papuntang langit. Dito binuklod ang pinagsama samang pananampalatayang walang bahid malisya. Dito pa lang magsisimula ang kwento ko. Hindi ko sasabihing pinakamagaling ang batch namin at lalong malayo naman sa pinakamahina.
Madami lang sa amin ang hindi competitive. Kung ang karamihan ay umaani ng medalya, kami ay umaani ng sermon. Kung ang karamihan ay nanliligaw na, kami ay naglilimahid ang leeg kalalaro. Iba iba ang grupo namin. Pero iisa ang hulma ng aming patutunguhan bilang mga anak ng Diyos na naglalakbay, nabubuwal, bumabangon at patuloy na naglalakad.
May grupo ng pasosyal na mga purdoy na ngayon. May mga grupo ng mahihirap at ngayon ay tumutulong na sa mga dating mapepera. May mga feeling magaganda at gwapo at nangangamoy ang mga kilikili dati at ngayon ay number one marketing specialist ahente kung medyo mahirap ng mga pampaputi ng kilikili.
May mga heartthrobs dating mga tinitilian pero ngayon ay siya ng mga tumitili. May mga ugly ducklings pero mga beautiful swans na ngayon at iyong mga iba naging adult ducks lang. May mga siga noon pero nakapalda na ngayon. May mga laging infatuated dati at ngayon ay nagsisilbi sa Panginoon at naging matapat na mangingibig.
May mga manang manang dati pero sunod sunod ang mga anak ngayon. Sila lang ang makapagsasabi ngayon kung sino sila sa mga nabanggit ko. Kawing kawing ang bawat araw na inilagi na min sa ating paaralan. Madalas nga paglipas ng panahon, nagkakaroon na ng direktang koneksiyon ang bawat isa. Iyong iba na lalaman nila. Iyong iba, hindi nila namamal ayan. Iyong iba, patuloy na i sinabuhay kung ano ang natutu nan nila sa paaralan. At iyong iba, ibang landas ang piniling lakbayin.
Hindi naman sagradong maitutur ing ang paaralang ito. Hindi rin kabanalan ang mahabang litanya at dasaling itinuro dito. Wala rin katunayan na ang mga magaaral na nagkasala ay hindi na muling makakabalik sa mga bisig ng Diyos.
Malamang hindi na ako makikilala ng aking mga naging guro. Lalo na at hindi naman ako nag excel sa anumang bagay maliban siguro sa magbigay ng mga nakakatawang palayaw ng mga kaklase ko, i-impersonate ng palihim ang ibang teachers, magdala ng makapal na encyclopedia at kunyaring binabasa para kunyari mukhang matalino, pisain ang pimples, magdrawing ng bundok na may bahay sa tuktok, mag lead ng prayer, madalas nasa last part na lagyan ng bunot ang mga bag ng classmates ko, gumawa ng mga kwento at tula na ako lang ang nagbabasa, kumain sa karinderya na sabaw ang ulam, mainggit sa magagandang damit ng mga kaklase ko at mang agaw ng crush ng iba para masabing binata na rin ako at maglaro ng volleyball hanggang ma-office ako dahil natamaan ang balakang ni sister dahil kinailangan niyang gumastos ng manghihilot.
Ngunit higit sa mga nakakatawa at nakakatuwang mga bagay at alaala, may natutunan ako sa naging buhay ko sa SAS na hindi ko makakalimutan. Sa kabila ng pagkaagnas ng kwelyo ko, napalitan rin iyon ng bago. Hindi habang buhay ay nakasadlak ang isang buhay sa putik. Dahil sa tiyaga at pananampalataya, nagkakaroon ng tunay na langit. Kung dati, ni rerecite ko lang ang rosary kasama ng mga ka klase ko, ngayon ito ay sumisimbolo sa isang paikot na daan na ng mga marubdob ang mga puso at pananampalataya.
Na ang lahat ay nagsimula sa Diyos at sa Diyos din babalik. Sa ngayon, hindi ko alam kung may lihim na nanlait sa kwelyo kong punit o may nagtangkang nagtanong kung naiintindihan ko ba talaga ang mga dasal ko. Siya nga pala, mahirap pa rin ako. Hindi rin ako tumalino. Hindi rin ako naging heartthrob.
Pero dahil sa SAS, nalaman kong kaya hindi daw natin naririnig ang Diyos ay sa kadahilanang maingay tayo. What sets them apart from other educators is that a Paulinian school is not just a system or an edifice — it is a place where every student is important because each St. Paul Sister knows her student personally. To a Paulinian student, the fondest memories from school always include the personal attention and nurturing care received from a particular or several St.
We now joyfully realize that our good Lord has truly blessed her efforts and looks upon her with favor as we now see the fruits in our adult lives. But the even greater joy we feel is that when we meet her again long after we have left school, she still remembers each one of us by name and our personal character!
It is with great consolation to feel assured that if indeed our names are indelibly written in the palms of her hands, then she has been faithfully praying for us all these years!
Praise and thanks be to God for Sister Esperanza Fadera! On the negative side, President John F. Kennedy of the United States got assassinated. This was also the year I got enrolled in St. When this great school started, all it could offer was Kindergarten up to Grade 3. There was an expectation that the guys in Grade 3 were to continue up to Grade 6.
At that time, high school was not within my mindset. Moving in to St. Paul of Chartres - with uniforms at that. I was really awed by that transformation, and the uncertainties facing me as a pioneering student, was a cause for concern. I will be meeting new faces — both teachers and students alike. And I guess, in hindsight that was pretty tough for any young kid from out of town. When we started in Grade III, there were 15 of us — 5 boys and 10 girls.
By the time we finished Grade VI, our tribe increased to 22 - 7 boys and 15 girls. I had been asked what the impact of SAS on me was. Immediately, my answer was on the way I write. They have what they call the Paulinian way of writing. This was really a big deal for me because my handwriting looks more like chicken scratches than any semblance of written communication. Hell, I can pass for a doctor with my kind of handwriting. But after three years at St.
Augustine, my handwriting improved massively, except that after five minutes, even I cannot read it anymore. Let me give you a brief history in case you did not attend the briefing as you entered the halls of this august school. Who are the Sisters of St. The Sisters of St. Paul was founded inby Fr. Louis Chauvet, parish priest of Levesville-la-Chenard, a little village in the region of Beauce, some 80 kilometers southeast of Paris — not by the apostle St.
This was the time of the French revolution and the guillotine. He did this through education and this was made possible through the help of Marie Anne de Tilly; the first teacher of the school, Marie Michaeu, and the first superior Barbe Foucault. Since their first mission was education, and since this was the Renaissance period, it will only be natural that their style of writing will be Baroque. I find this rather amusing because the Cathedral of Chartres, which made them famous, is really Gothic in style — rather than Baroque.
The Sisters were later on given a house in the suburb of St. And so, the St. Paul of Chartres may refer to Msgr. Paul Godet, who is not a Saint.
It can also refer to the apostle St. Paul because the Sisters of St. Paul lived their lives according to the gospel of St. Paul is not from Chartres. It is considered one of the finest examples of the French High Gothic style. The current cathedral, most likely constructed between andis one of at least five which has occupied the site since the town became a bishopric in the 4th century.
What makes the cathedral special from an artistic viewpoint is its exceptional state of preservation. The majority of the original stained glass windows have survived and they are still intact, while its architecture has seen only minor changes since the early 13th century. The building s exterior is dominated by heavy flying buttresses which allowed the architects to increase the window size significantly, while two contrasting spires dominate the west end. As a result of these influences, the Paulinian writing style is very French of the old school.
I have vague memories of our teacher in Writing but I do remember the twirls she made when writing capital letters. To this very day, somehow I still manage to write that way. Our class though small in size, led to better socialization and we knew what everyone was doing. It seemed like a second family for me and it was fun just being with your classmates.
You have to remember that there were only 15 of us. In hindsight, I believe that the small class size made us more cooperative rather than competitive. We were helping each other rather than compete with each other. Still, there were natural geniuses who eventually stood out. I must admit, I was not one of them. Somehow I preferred goofing around than studying my lessons.
The small library was a favourite hangout of mine. There, I read books - of places I dreamed of visiting one day, of people I would emulate, and of ideas that would mold my attitude. I must have read more books that were not part of the curriculum than the recommended ones. I guess reading is another one of those impacts St. Augustine had on me. I was reading any book I could lay my hands on.
Reading was a big pleasure for me because my imagination soared without any boundaries. I am still convinced that reading presents a more vivid picture than, let us say — listening to audio books or watching DVDs.
I have always remembered them despite not getting the chance to thank them for their kindness. In this age of the internet, I hope we do not lose that pleasure of reading. The annual field demonstrations as well as the drama productions were big events that were considered as major extracurricular activities. These were big production numbers and they involved wholesale practise on a daily basis. If somebody has to be credited for this major production, credit will certainly go to Ms.
It could have been our fear of her that motivated us to synchronize our moves. Drama was likewise a big deal for us because the Paulinian Sisters somehow were heavily influenced by Fr. As I have mentioned earlier, we had a small class and therefore, all of us were involved in these activities, no exceptions. The only question was — who was going to get the lead role? I somehow, and with some unabashed bragging rights, was regularly chosen to play some lead roles.
I was a matador in a bullfighting field demonstration. I was also a lead actor in one stage play which seemed to me like a horror drama. Our formative years did not end up being thespians. We also developed our vocal cords as we formed the first glee club of the school. Somehow, while Gregorian chants may sound sublime from the choir attic of the Iba Basilica, I prefer our version of the Sound of Music at the meeting place of the Knights of Columbus, to the enjoyment of our parents and relatives and friends.
I never realized we will sound so cool. I do believe that this is not only true to me but also to all the pioneers of St. And while I did not attend high school at SAS, my heart belongs to this school where I had so much fun and great time. The Augusteener December 27www. Garcia of Iba, Zambales. Considers himself a Zambaleno as he grew up at Iba, Zambales where his parents made home. A consistent honor student from his grade school, he graduated salutatorian from high school — winning several awards, notably the Leadership Award and the Gerry Roxas Scholarship Award, among others.
He represented his school in oratorical competitions and won province wide. Entered the UST for convenience principally — the school being nearest home. At the insistence of his family he enrolled in a Pre-Med course. An inkling perhaps as to his choice of career was that he managed to get himself a commission as a cadet officer of the UST ROTC — while pursuing his pre-med course — the only science student at that time who was a cadet officer.
Took an entrance examination for the PMA at the first opportunity and passed it — at the same time that he passed his pre-med course and met all school pre-requisites for admission to the UST School of Medicine. He chose to enter the Academy instead. His entire family father, mother, sisters and only brother was opposed to the idea.
As a firstie, he represented the Academy in various track and field competitions and oratorical contests participated in by the Academy. He was Corp Executive Officer when he graduated and was among the upper third of his class in scholastic standing.
And like his classmates who were assigned in the Constabulary he drew the Constabulary when his class drew lots for service assignments. Reassigned to Recom 1, he, together with two other officer classmates under two of the training of new PC enlistees of Recom 1 — abbreviated ranger course — which men later on composed the Special Action Company of Recom 1 and to which company he was later on assigned a junior officer.
In one of his patrols, instinct and probably good luck saved him and his troops from a possible ambush by subversive terrorists at one hinderland village.
Passing through said village, he refused an invitation to take supper and stay overnight there at — and even light refreshments and a little rest.
He decided to push on through and camped instead for the night in the foothills outside of and overlooking the village. Later intelligence disclosed that at the same time that the villagers were enticing them to spend some time within the village an enemy group was at the outskirts of the village and which group could have inflicted heavy casualties of his patrol — had the enemy group been able to position themselves by the hanging bridge on the route his patrol took on the way out of the village.
The Augusteener December 35www. He was deeply affected by the poverty and misery of the poor people of the hinderlands. He gave away his personal medicines he brought for his own use, to seek villagers. Perhaps even at the outset he was never meant to be a doctor of medicine — for had he not chosen the military as a career — he could have been a priest.
From his boyhood, he has manifested a special closeness to the church. Whenever he was at Iba he never failed to serve mass and visit the parish priest, the Bishop of Zambales and the sisters of St. He could have been a good priest too. It is likely, that his choice of the military as a carrier was influenced by his exposure to military life during his youth and early formative years. He spent his school vacations in PC camps and stations where his father was assigned and was thus exposed to the company of soldiers and young lieutenants.
He could have been a good lawyer and a successful politician as he was articulate and friendly to everyone and exhibited no airs. According to one of his foster mothers — he had a way of endearing himself with people. He had several foster parents who adopted him and whom he adopted.
He had three at Baguio City, one at Lingayen, Pangasinan, and even one as far as Tacloban City who acquired during his tour in the south as a cadet. He was foremost of all — thoughtful. On the fateful day 13 Mayhe was, together with his ranger team on board a Land Rover about meters behind a lead vehicle on the way to Bontoc from Besao when they were ambushed at Sitio Banga-an, Sagada, Mountain Province by subversive terrorists on or about hours.
The lead vehicle was fired upon by the enemy hitting and wounding one officer and the driver of the vehicle — and thus immobilizing the vehicle. He had his team detrack, maneuvered his troops, returned the enemy fire, clear the area of the enemy and extricated the troops that were pinned down by enemy fire. He then made available his vehicle and driver to evacuate the wounded officer and driver to Bontoc; and personally operated the immobilized lead vehicle and maneuvered same from where it was ditched onto the road.
With him at the wheels, he had his troops and others board the vehicle and continued and proceeded with their interrupted trip to Bontoc. Met on the way by the Actg Provincial Commander of Mt. Province who came from Bontoc with reinforcements, they returned to the ambush site as ordered. For the second time that fateful afternoon, he and his troops once more scoured and searched the area for the enemy.
It turned out the enemy had returned to the area and a firefight ensued. Dusk was sitting in, and unmindful of his personal safety he aggressively maneuvered and redeployed his troops and continuously directed the movements of his men forward by voice and hand signals — moving ahead of the other elements with them, to dislodge the enemy from their entrenched position thereby exposing himself to enemy fire and leading by example until he was felled by an enemy shot on the forehead: A senior officer of his commented that with that fatal shot the enemy killed a potential general.
His body was flown home, by helicopter, to his parents at Iba, Zambales arriving before noon at the Iba Airstrip 15 May where he was met by his parents, relatives and other town mates. He was buried at high noon on 17 May His funeral mass was concelebrated by seven priests. Bob was awarded the Gold Cross Medal Posthumous for gallantry in action, and which medal was presented to his father in appropriate ceremonies at Camp Crame, Quezon City on 8 August We were always looking for a way to have fun.
We frequently found every small reason to be together. We were freshmen during the declaration of Martial law, too young to be really worried about late parties and stay-ins then.
We had our own home curfewsso midnight curfews did not really bother us. We were sophomores when the SAS minor seminary opened. We had 5 minor seminarians to start with in our class. It was an adjustment for all of us. We had young boys who were away from their families. They came from all over Zambales. We learned mutually immediately how to make good friends, especially we had more boys added to our class. I am proud to be a graduate of SAS. I have spent 10 years of my life in its walls.
It has slowly and gradually molded us morally and religiously. We were such a small school then and the nuns and priests around us have definitely affected our lives. SAS has given me the chance to learn and live my faith up to this day. Back then, we took everything for granted somehow, not realizing how it would affect us now. I do greatly commend our mentors for emphasizing the use of written and spoken English in the campus.
All of these little things that have gladly paid off now as adults. Each class change always started and ended with a prayer. Sometimes it would be hard to stay serious when the then Sr. It was precious to recall the presence of Msgr. Byrne sitting at the particular spot at the church.

We would go and visit and be blessed. Whoever he remembers to be mischievous would get a knock on the forehead with his ring. We competed against boys and girls. If it was the game is not finished through the break, rest assured we will continue the competition until the next break. Most of us would rather get punished than reveal the truth. This is how you find out who likes who and all the teasing during and out of the classes would start. We played on the few concrete benches by the bougainvillea bushes.
Chalks were not used but we used folded up bougainvillea leaves to scroll on concrete. The version of eco-friendly during that time. After storms, we would convince the teachers to take a long walk to the beach, just to be able to collect sea shells but really mostly to get out of the campus with their consent. Adolescence would not be normal without peer pressure.
It was a positive influence in our class. We had a lot of musically talented classmates and the guitar was at the center of it all. Most of us looked forward to the glee club and enjoyed the class musical competitions particularly the one under the supervision of Mr. We had a lot of talented classmates. In our younger years, we loved competing against the upper classmen. We competed in oratorical contest,spelling, singing, dancing and sports.
