Title: A Letter To The Municipality of Guindulman II (need your names)
Post by: ms da binsi on May 03, 2010, 11:36:03 AM
Here is the letter made by Wolfpack; we need your names whoever wants to support it so we could have it printed at Bohol Chronicle...you dont need to post your comments, if you want to make your comments, post it at the Letter To Guindulman Part I.

All you have to do is modify this topic and write your name. Dont be afraid to write your name, lets show to Bohol that we who are not politicians can  also make a CHANGE!


 A Letter to the Municipality of Guindulman

We, the concerned Boholanos residing in the Philippines and overseas, strongly condemn the senseless cutting of century-old acacia trees in the historic town of Guindulman, Bohol.  We strongly believe that such acts of the local officials are unforgivable.

The acacia trees are not only part of the life and culture of the people, those trees stood witness of the town’s struggles, trials and triumphs. Those trees also show-cased the cultural heritage of the municipality, therefore, the aesthetic values of those  trees cannot be at par or compromised with any development project Guindulman undertakes.

We believe that persons in authority should be held accountable for their actions. What they did is a total disregard of all environmental efforts in preserving the Mother Nature, not withstanding, the insult they inflicted to the entire generation of Guindulmanons, the Bohol population and the Philippines as a whole. It is a total gross negligence leading us to believe that the incumbent mayor and the members of Sangguniang Bayan apparently abuse their powers and authorities.

The Honorable Ma. Fe Piezas, the incumbent mayor’s defense for her irresponsible acts which is for the safety of the public is a total lie. The Pacific Consultant International  (PCI), consultants of the Bohol Circumferential Road Improvement Project (BCRIP-2) did not recommend the cutting of the trees when the national highway road was built in 2006. It was indeed illogical that the trees became a hazard three years after the Japanese environmental and structural experts deemed the trees safe and part of the scenic sights along the national highways. It is highly unacceptable that the main purpose for cutting the trees is to give a prominent view of the building claimed by the municipal administration as its major accomplishment or pet project. The damages are irreparable.

The Community Environment and Natural Resources Office who issued the special permit  is also equally liable with the local officials. No matter how sick and old those trees were, concerned officials must exhaust every possible means to save them. On this aspect, they failed us.

It is therefore, our moral obligation to see to it that the perpetrators of this ecological massacre in Guindulman will answer for what they did. The pitiful trees cannot cry or beg for mercy, but we the people can seek justice on their behalf. We should always remember that we did not inherit the environment, we borrow this from our children. More than anything else, on this particular situation, we shall see to it that justice will be served.

Moreso, we urge the Department of Environment and Natural Resources to conduct an investigation on this issue, not only in this Guinldulman case, but in all future applications to avoid repetition of committing the same grievous mistakes.

Respectfully,

So sad. What is DENR doing?! they allowed these people to cut trees? Those involved should be cut from their positions.

Hello Kaayuhan:

Okay man lang kung dli ka mosuporta. As for me bag-o lang ko sa forum, but I know about this a long time, and I was mad. For sure, you have to understand that I don't have any political link in Guindulman. I am from Cortes darling, and based in the US.

I support the global initiatives for preserving our environment, and it sad that in my own home field, there are people that destroy it.

It is just a matter of principles, what I believe and what you believe. And please don't tell us face value what that mayor did. Surely, she did something good but she also did something real bad.

Sorry, no offense, we are talking about the issue, being her a candidate for this election is just a consequence. Good luck to her...

Thank you for getting involved.

Part 1 of My Lamentation Over the Guindulman Tree Massacre:

Adyos, Mga Kahoy Sa Guindulman
as it appeared in Tumoy Sa Bangaw column
in the Bohol Standard

Daw gikumoskumos ang akong kasingkasing nga nagsud-ong sa mga bantugan-higanteng kahoy atbang sa merkado sa Guindulman nga giputol sa way puangod nga local government sa maong lungsod.

Moingon ko nga way puangod ug way kasingkasing ug way kaluoy kay ngano man gyud nga putlon ang duha ka karaang kahoy nga seguro hapit na usa ka gatos ka tuig nga naghatag ug landong sa mga lumolupyo ug dumoduong sa Guindulman.

Pila na ka libo nga mga tawo ang nabulahan sa landong ug kabugnaw sa maong mga kahoy. Ug karon, tungod kay gusto sa local government sa maong lungsod ipagarpar nga bag-o ang ilang merkado, gipamutol ang mga kahoy. Daghang gianugnan. Daghang nasuko. Daghang nagsubo.

Sa pagkapukan sa pinakadako ug pinakalayog nga acacia, diha ko nakasaksi. Ang tapad nga kahoy gisugdan pa pagpuong. Sa akong paghibalik, nahawan na tanan. Kung tiglabyanan ka sa dalan sa Guindulman, lingia ang dapit sa merkado. Wala na ang mga higanteng kahoy. Wala na ang mga kahoy nga tipik na ug kabahin sa atong kinabuhi.

Nahinabi ko ang usa ka taga-Guindulman nga nagpanglingolingo nga nagtan-aw sa higanteng kahoy nga nagbuy-od na. “Pagkaanugon sa kahoy! Kanus-a pa kaha ta makakita ug kahoy nga sama ani,” panghupaw nga may pagmahay ang miguwa sa baba adtong tawo nga akong nahinabi. Gimahayan niya ang mayor ug opisyales sa iyang lungsod nga maoy nagmando sa pagpaputol sa maong mga kahoy.

Dihay miingon nga posible gipamutol ang mga kahoy atbang sa bag-ong gipabarog nga merkado sa Guindulman kay lagi nagkaduol naman ang piniliay ug dili unya makita sa mga tawo ang karatola nga magbansiwag kung kinsa ang nangusog sa maong proyekto. Kung mao man na ang hinungdan sa pagputol sa mga kahoy, pagkaalaot natong mga katawhan nga nakabaton ug mga lampingasang politiko.

Dihay mga nagkanayon nga gitudas ang maong mga kahoy kay gusto sa mga opisyales sa Guindulman nga dili masalipdan ang bag-ong merkado. Kung tinuod man ang maong katarongan, pagkaalot natong mga katawhan nga nakabaton ug mga opisyales nga lapsaw ug mga hunahuna.

Dihay mga nag-ingon nga ang maong mga kahoy makadisgrasya kono tungod sa pagpangatagak sa iyang mga sanga. Kung tinuod man kini nga katarungan, pagputol ba sa kahoy ang sulbad ana? Dili ba diay mahimo nga puongan? Ngano nga ang tibuok punoan sa kahoy man ang putlon kung sanga lang ang gikahadlokan nga matagak?

Dili ko kasabot unsa nga klase nga pangutok ang naa sa bagolbagol sa local government sa Guindulman. Ambot kung ang Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) aduna bay pagtugot sa maong pagputol sa mga kahoy. Kung aduna man, ngano kaha pud nga miuyon ang DENR nga pamutlon tong mga kahoya?

Sa mga nasod sa gawas, buhaton ang tanang paagi sa mga tawo aron dili maputol ang kahoy kung adunay bag-ong structure nga tukoron. Likayan kutob sa mahimo aron padayon nga magbarog ang kahoy. Ang ilang pagpangga ug pag-amping sa gasa sa kinaiyahan, sama sa kahoy, walay paglubad bisan pa sa pag-uswag sa katilingban ug pagdagsang sa mga bag-ong teknolohiya ug kahimanan.
Daghan nang kalamboan ang nahitabo sa gawas, apan pabilin ang ilang pagmatuto sa kinaiyahan.

Dakong sukwahi ang gipakita sa local government sa Guindulman. Wala nila hunahunaa pila ka anyos ang paaboton aron ang mga tawo makatagamtam pag-usab sa kaanindot sa landong ug kabugnaw sa kahoy. Wala gyud sila makatugkad sa kabililhon sa usa ka kahoy kansang kinabuhi dili na gyud mamalik kung kini pasipad-an. Ambot unsa nga klase nga panghunahuna ang anaa sa atong gobyerno.

Sama kini nahitabo sa mga kahoy diha sa Plaza Rizal sa Tagbilaran atbang sa Provincial Capitol. Sa matod pa order sa GSO (General Services Office) nga ubos kanhi ni Engr. Edwin Vallejos, gipamutol tong mga daghang mga kahoy sa Plaza. Ang katarongan sa pagputol pagkataphaw ug pagka-way-hinungdan. Imbes kay mao nalang to ang nahibiling daginotong kahoy nga nagbarog sa dakbayan, sa way paghunahuna ug way puangod nga desisyon, gipuo ang mga karaang kahoy sa Plaza Rizal. Karon, labihang inita sa Plaza.

Hangtud kanus-a makamata ug makaamgo ang mga naa sa gobyerno ug bisan kadtong mga Filipino nga dili managana sa pagputol ug mga kahoy? Hangtud kanus-a.

Part 2 Of My Lamentation:

sumpay sa akong column nga napatik sa The Bohol Standard Newspaper

Asa Ang Hustisya Sa Guindulman?

Niadtong unang semana sa September, atong nahisgutan dinhi ang subo nga palandongon nga gidangatan sa mga higanteng kahoy sa Guindulman nga nagbarog atubangan sa merkado kapin na sa usa ka gatos ka tuig ang milabay.

Kanang mga opisyales sa local government sa Guindulman, nga way mga kasing-kasing alang sa kinaiyahan, tungod sa naghingapin nilang garbo, miputol sa mga kahoy nga himsog kaayo sa tumang kasayon ug walay pagtagad sa pagbati sa mga tawo.

Ang pangutana karon: kinsa man ang nabulahan sa mga lumber adtong mga kahoy nga gipanamastamasan sa LGU sa Guindulman? Maayo seguro ug susihon ang mga balay ug nataran sa mga namunuan sa Guindulman kay matod pa sa mga huhungihong adunay nabulahan sa mga kahoy. Seguro bag-o na ug furniture set ang mga mapangahason.

Naghisgot ta ug balik niining nahitabo sa mga kahoy sa Guindulman tungod sa padayon nga pagbangotan sa mga tawo sa Guindulman, kaliboan nga katawhan nga nahisagmuyo sa lampingasan nga desisyon sa LGU, mga katawhan nga nasuko ug naguol sa gidangatan sa mga kahoy.

Ug dili lang mga taga Guindulman ang gisayangan sa mga kahoy ug gingil-aran sa binuhatan sa mga opisyales sa Guindulman, ang mga lumolupyo sa lain-laing mga lungsod sa Bohol ang gianugnan sa mga kahoy ug misaway sa balasobas nga pagbati sa nagpaluyo sa pagpamutol sa mga kahoy sa Guindulman.

Atong balikon nga ang giingon sa mga tigpaniid sa Guindulman nga ang bugtong tumong ug tinguha sa LGU sa pagpamatol sa mga higanteng kahoy mao aron maladlad sa mga molabay nga bag-o ang ilang merkado. Pagka-mabaw ba pud ug paminsar kung mao na. Ang buot ba ipasabot nga garbo lang ang nagtukmod nila aron payagon tong mga kahoy nga kapin na sa usa ka gatos ka tuig naghatag ug landong sa maong lungsod? Pagkabarato ra pud nga garbo.

Tinuod nga bag-o nga mibarog ang merkado sa Guindulman. Ug tungod lagi kay natagaw o nabag-ohan ang LGU nga bag-o ang ilang merkado, buot nila nga mapasundayag sa tanan, maila sa tanan, mahibaw-an sa tanang lumalabay sa Guindulman nga bag-o ang merkado, ug tungod niini daygon kintahay sila sa ilang proyekto, ug ilang gipanamastamasan ang mga inosenteng kahoy aron matuman ang linoog nila nga tinguha. Pamolitika lang gihapon.

Ang nakaapan niini kay way mga taga Guindulman nga midemanda sa korte ug nakigbatok sa dautan nga buhat sa LGU. Wala pay katinoan ang balita nga walay tukmang pagtugot gikan sa DENR ang maong pagputol. Kung mitugot man ugaling ang provincial DENR, nakahibawo ba kaha sila sa balaod nga nagdili sa pagputol sa mga kahoy? Bisan man gani lubi karon, dili na ipaputol sa gobyerno kung walay permit.

Dili matukib ang kayugot sa mga tawo. Dili madungog ang ilang mga yangongo sa kahanginan apan kung imong estoryahon sila sa hilom, diha nimo mabati ang ilang pagsaway sa pangagamhanan sa Guindulman. Gani pa man, daghan nang mga tigulang sa Guindulman ang nakatulo ang luha sa dihang ilang nadiskobrehan nga wala na ang karaang acacia nga diha na nabuhi bisan wala pa sila mangatawo ning kalibotana.

Nahinabi ning pamantalaan kausa si Ali Amoguis nga lunod-patay taga-Guindulman. Siya mismo mitaho nga way tawo sa maong lungsod ang nalipay sa linoog ug lampingasan nga binuhatan sa LGU. “Wa ko kasabot unsay nasulod sa utok nang among mga kadagkoan sa munisipyo,” panghupaw ni Ali Amoguis.

Ang gikabaniog sa maong lungsod mao ang kalit nga kamatayon sa mingputol (chainsaw owner) sa karaang acacia. Bata pa ug wala idungog nga masakiton ang maong tawo. Kalit nga gihilantan human ug putol sa acacia ug mao ray hinungdan sa misteryoso niyang kamatayon.

Matod pa sa mga tawo sa Guindulman nga nahinabi sa The Bohol Standard, ang hinungdan nga aduna pay usa ka kahoy nga nahibilin nagbarog atbang sa merkado mao nga wala nay misugot nga moputol sa kataposang kahoy nga nagbarog.

Pasangil sa LGU nga kadto ra konong dakong kahoy ang putlon. Apan ang tinuod giapil ug hagbas ang mga gagmayng kahoy nga murag kapin na pud to sila ug napulo ka tuig ang panuigon. Pagkamatay sa mamutolay, naluwas ang kataposang kahoy kay lagi wala namay motugatuga ug putol karon bisan pila pay isweldo sa munisipyo.

Niingon tong mga tawo sa Guindulman ngano ang nag-chainsaw man ang gipareglahan sa mga dili-ingon-nato. Dili ba kaha pud isunod ug tulisok sa tanlag ang mga opisyales sa Guindulman?

Dili na angay maghulat ang mga katawhan sa Guindulman ug dili-ingon-nato nga mao ang maningil sa hustisya sa kamatayon sa mga kahoy. Sila na mismo ang makapanaog sa maong hustisya karong Mayo 2010.

Kaayohan, ako si Tessie Bertumen kanhing namoyo sa Bulawan. Kining pagpotol sa mga akasya nahimong diskosyon sa mga taga Guindulman labi na ang tua sa amerika.Akong gipaningkamotan nga ang petisyon ma botang sa Bohol Chronicle apan nahilom na lamang ug kalit.
I´m glad that we have people here who are concerned and this is a good sign that other acacia trees that are still existing be protected.
Thank you very much to Bella for exerting much effort and to the Lady from Cortes who compose this letter. It took me some time to react for some very personal reasons. Salamat Mike.

Im vehemently against in cutting the century trees kay its also my advocacy to preserve and protect our environment.

I know mike ligalig (Media) ngano man dili man ko mo inquire sa municipyo kung kinsa tong mga tawhana nga ni perma ug nihatag sa permit sa pagputol sa mga kahoy para mahuman ug maklaro kung kinsa ang dapat managot ug angay pasakaan ug sombong sa husgado....  Dili lang ta mag sige ug pangutana sa mga guindulmanon nga "HERSAY TANAN" ug nag quote pa ug tawo nga poro fabricated story para lang to discredit our mayor....

Secure the evidences para mahatagan ug solution ug angay nga action para lang mapanagot ang mga tawo nga ni hatag permit ug nitogot sa pagpotol sa mga KAHOY....

PUTTING THE ARTICLE IN THE CIRCULATION HAS NO SENSE, IF NO EVIDENCE OR PROOF BEING ATTACHED (secure the permit copy) para makita kung kinsa ang utok sa pagpotol....

If you're not going to value trees from your good heart, at least consider their value at the economic level. They stabilize the ground, play a great role in the eco system, help with your heating and cooling cost (even in Bohol, you don't need all those electric fans with lots of trees around) and lastly, they can amp up your curb appeal.

There's a reason why The Woodlands, a suburb in Houston didn't suffer the swan dive that a most of the Housing Market in the US suffered. People here protect our trees and even our animals. It is a place where you can hang out in your backyard and see 9 different species of birds and a whole flock of hummingbirds in peak season by your lilac bushes. You don't believe me ? take a look
www.thewoodlands.com (http://www.thewoodlands.com)

When I was a freshman in UP Diliman, I asked whey were there so many acacia trees around. They answered, because this tree is so resilient that it could withstand being surrounded by concrete and even survive acid rain.

Guindulman does not have acid rain, these trees may be surrounded  by concrete but even at these poor survival conditions, these trees could've given so much more.

Its not as petty as something political, its bigger than all this stupid nonsense combined. After your "precious candidate" Kaayuhan and probably you as well, has gone and died and has been absorbed back into the earth, these trees live on to give shade and home and maybe even food to creatures that will exist long after the memory of you will.

Hello guys.
Thank you for the information, but i think we have to verify both sides. It must be solve thru filling of case of government concern and we just hope for the best. But, why not solved in Christian way and help each other . After all we all same Boholano and hope our image is not aho aho imo imo. We will show to the World that Boholano  were different .  We were created by   God's image . So, we must be godly so that God  will be happy for us. I hope that we will not make Satan happy and dont let evil rule us.  This is an end times and we have to repent and be save.  Let JESUS be our savior and let Jesus rule our life.
According to th Holy Scriptures: Luke 6 :37 Do not judge and you will not be judged. Do not condemn a nd you will not condemned . Forgive and you will be forgiven  We cannot bring those things in heaven . God bless you all.

the same holds true in our own country, actually.  no tree even in your own lot must be cut without denr's permit.  this particular case in guindulman could mean that a permit was granted.  why is what should be looked into.

thanks for reminding us of our trust in god, he who helps those who help themselves.       

there is no condemnation here, i believe.  there are just people expressing their side against environmental damage, more so that this involves cut acacias, those innocent trees with which a town's history and a people's memory have been shared.

I agree. However, let us remember that the laws of the land are based on the scriptures of the Bible. Not everyone responds exactly the same to whatever situations that come. It's like, in the family, there is a brave and strong , and there is a weak and lowly. Combining both should make a wise decision, one who thinks and decides (weak and lowly) and the other one implements ( brave and strong). As a whole, this group can make changes to mistakes already done.

God helps those who help themselves. Lots of bible stories support that.

But I don't think he's too kind to those who are stupid.

Remember that contingent of zealots around 10 years ago who went to Mindanao to "pray over" our very own muslim terrorists who were bombing everybody ?..... yeah...they all got beheaded.

sad but true.

The only thing that could right this matter is to make people more aware and of course, to replant. As one poster suggested 100 trees for each one...and may I add, 50 fruit bearing trees and 50 shade trees.

Shall I go on to say 50 young acacias and 50 Mangoes ? surely everyone loves Mangoes... :-)

i've made a quick research on the laws this acts violated. beware though that i'm not a lawyer so i am not an authority on this.

it is possible that RA 3571 is violated. this is 'an act to prohibit the cutting, destroying or injuring of planted or growing trees, flowering plants and shrubs or plants of scenic value along public roads, in plazas, parks, school premises or in any other public ground.'

it is also possible that PD 953 is violated. this decree is 'requiring the planting of trees in certain places and penalizing unauthorized cutting, destruction, damaging and injuring or certain trees, plants and vegetation.'

here is a 2008 incident which used PD 953 in running after a government official for illegal cutting of old trees in a park

Thanks Jig,

It is really very obvious that the Mayor, members of the SK, PENRO and CENRO violated PD 3571 otherwise known as “ An Act Prohibiting the Cutting, Destroying, or Injuring of Planted or Growing Trees, in Certain Places and Penalizing Unauthorized Cutting, Destruction, Damaging and Injuring of Certain Trees, Plants and Vegetations,”  and PD 953 otherwise known as: “ PD 953 Requiring the Planting of Trees in Certain Places and Penalizing Unauthorized Cutting, Destruction, Damaging and Injuring of Certain Trees, Plants and Vegetation.
It is also hard to understand how the CENRO and PENRO issued the special permit if there is any and allowed this to happen.
I strongly believe we have that capabilities to stop this kind  of occurrence in the future and of course, bring to justice and pay for the consequences of their actions.

Balilihan is a great example. You can still see the more than century old trees towering in the town's plaza. Nobody dared to cut it off even if there incidents past that some of those trees stumbled to ground due to natural causes. It's really hazardous because those trees may go down at any given time without warning. However, people still value it as heritage and treasure.

Count me in.

Mi sign na ko sa petition.

During the 1900's up to 20's my grandfather the late Rufino Sarmiento was a 'kapatas' (foreman) of a survey team that paved the way to construct major roads of Bohol. My late grandmother told me that it was my grandfather's initiative being superstitious to replace fallen trees with Acacia Trees planted beside the new road they built.

I believe those were one of my grandfather's trees. Those were sacred to me.

Apila ko sa listahan.

Gwargz Prudente Monreal, Malaybalay City & Davao City

Ulahi na man jod ang tanan.

Pero naa pa daghan kalungsoran nga daghan ug Acacia ug mga Narra
sa plaza sa simbahan ug mga eskwelahan. Kada usa nato dinhi sa TB,
gikan sa nagkalain-laing lungsod sa Bohol. Busa magpakabana ta dili lang
sa nahitabo sa Guindulman kon dili sa atong tagsa-tagsa ka lungsod
nga naa pa ang Haring Kahoy.

Sa akong personal nga pangwenta, gi-dali-dali ug putol ang mga kahoy
sa Guindulman without researching kon unsay maayong buhaton, putlon o dili.
Wala gani seguro consultation sa katawhan.

Isip gamay nga ideya, para sa ubang lungsod nga wa pa putli,
pwede man unta to dili lang hilabtan. Puongan lang sa mga patay nga sanga
aron dili maka-disgrasya. Kon may bangag man galing sa punoan, which is
maoy kasagarang sakit sa Acacia, pwede man na hinloan ug aplayan ug medisina
nga maayo siya.

Sama sa mga Acacia sa Forbes sa Makati. Halos tanan punoan sa Acacia
naay bangag. Kon sa ngipon pa, gikiki ug nangabuslot na. Apan pinaagi
sa bag-ong technology sa pagpreserbar sa kahoy, nangaayo na kini tanan
ug nindot na tan-awon.

Ang mga nagputol ato segurado ako nga wala kabalo ani nga pamaagi
kay wala lagi mangunsulta. Hinaot patamnon ug 100 Acacia trees tong
nagputol, nagsugo pagputol, nagpirma aron maputol ang mga kahoy
sa Guindulman.

ang akoa lang nga dile unta nato i sabwag ning atong kaugalingong problema dire sa kawanangan, kay ngano?....dakong uwaw ni!!!!
Unang sayop: ang letter (acacia gi pamutol) gihubad sa ininglis! ug kini masabtan sa mga bana sa atong mga igsoon didto sa laing nasud. Dile ba uwaw nga mabulgar ang atong pagka amaw? Gikan sa Mayor sa lungsod hangtod sa mga taw(nga gasiga lang ang mga mata sa dihang gipamutol ang mga kahoy) parte sila sa destruction.... hangtud sa mga gabasa niini nga gasiga sad ang mata! :o
Salig ra ug dunay naka gamit sa ilang celphone sa pag kuhag video niadtong higayuna...o bisan unsang hulagway lang....wala!nangiyugpos lang!
Ikaduhang sayop: Gicompara na ta sa ubang mga dapit sa kalibutan sa ilang kaanindot ug pagkamabinantayon sa kalikopan. Iya tang gipatan aw sa link nga didto siya namuyo unya nindot kuno kaayo.....kana tungod kay dile sila mga amaw nga mamutol ug kakahoyan!
Wala ako malipay sa akong nabasa...labi kay gisudlan ug polika!
Dile sad ko motuo aning pirma2x,kay wala na kamoy mahimo niana....tungod kay kasagaran ninyo tua man sa laing nasud. Mas motuo pa hinuon ko ug makabasa kog balita nga adunay mga taw nga ming babag sa pag putol sa mga kakahoyan ug ilang gipanakbas usab ang mga nagpasipa sa nahisgotang mga kakahoyan.
Sa kataposan...ang sakto mao kini: Ang chainsaw operator nga namutol sa acacia, namatay! unya wala mahibaw-i ang sakit....Mao ra kini ag sakto kanato ang maligno,barang, ug ingkato.
Sa sunod ayaw nag ininglisa ang atong sentimento mahitungod niani arong dile ta maulawan sa mga banyaga......

Post by: hubag bohol on May 06, 2010, 02:01:47 AM

Miss Highblood, gusto kong masayod ka nga sa unang bahin, dili kaayo ko interesado niining maong tema--nahitabo lang nga niining taknaa nabasahan nako ang imong tampo. Mao nga palihog lang, ayaw laina pagsabot kining akong diyutayng panahom:

Sa imong punto nga maulaw ta sa ubang tawo sa kalibotan kay atong gi-Iningles ang atong kukabildo kabahin niining maong isyu, morag dili ako makadapig kanimo. Kanang imong pagpakabana kabahin sa kaulaw, "losing face" sa Iningles pa, morag dili angay ipatigbabaw, ilabi na kon kini itandi sa kahinungdanon sa ubang isyu nga nahilambigit dinhi.

Sa ikaduhang punto, nanimuyo na kita karon sa panahon nga ang kalibotan matawag nga kasilinganan lamang (global neighborhood). Kon atong tagoan ang atong kakulangan gikan sa mata sa kalibotan, sa kapulihay mahibiyaan kita sa dis-og sa buhilaman--kana kon dili man sa samang higayon makatagamtam kita sa hapdos nga panghimaraot. 

Tinuod, adunay kapasikaran ang imong ginaingon nga angay tang maulaw. Apan sa susamang pagkaagi, kining maong kaulaw maoy angay nga magsugnib sa atong kaikag nga dili na mausab ang nagbuntaog nga kasaypanan nga nabuhat sa hingtungdan nga nangagamhanan sa Guindulman. Para nako, kon kinahanglan nga bation tag kaulaw aron lamang mapatunhay ang atong kalikopan, akong sagubangon kining maong kaulaw kay ang bugti niini mao ang kalamposan nga angay ikapasigarbo dili lang nganha sa ubang tawo sa kalibotan kon dili ngadto usab sa umaabot nga kaliwatan.

Kabahin sa uban pa nimong mga punto, wala magkulang ang akong pagsalig nga kini sila hingpit nga tubagon sa ubang miyembro sa Tubag Bohol.

Salamat sa imong pagpakabana.

AKONG SUHESTIYON : Inday or Dodong, global ni nga problema. Dili lang sa Guindulman. Ikauwaw ba nga naputol inyo kahoy? Dapat nimo IKASUKO! Kasabot ka? Ha? Kay ininglison nako.

MATUD MO : .... hangtud sa mga gabasa niini nga gasiga sad ang mata! :o
AKONG SUHESTIYON : Ayaw ko apila. Basin BUDLAT kag mata, mao nga gasiga pirmi.

MATUD MO : Gicompara na ta sa ubang mga dapit sa kalibutan sa ilang kaanindot ug pagkamabinantayon sa kalikopan. Iya tang gipatan aw sa link nga didto siya namuyo unya nindot kuno kaayo.
AKONG SUHESTIYON : Dapat lang. Unsaon nimo pagkahibalo sa MAAYO BATOK SA KADAOT? Aber? Unsaon nimo paghibalo sa nindot batok sa dili nindot kon walay basihanan? Don't be narrow-minded my friend. Use your coconut. I mean use your head. Basin mokatkat kas lubi?

MATUD MO : Ang chainsaw operator nga namutol sa acacia, namatay! unya wala mahibaw-i ang sakit....Mao ra kini ag sakto kanato ang maligno,barang, ug ingkato.
AKONG SUHESTIYON : Wa mahibaw-i ang sakit kay wala ma-autopsy. Simple as that.

MATUD MO : Sa sunod ayaw nag ininglisa ang atong sentimento mahitungod niani arong dile ta maulawan sa mga banyaga......
AKONG SUHESTIYON : Don't hide the fact that you can not understand simple English. Do you? Karon ka pa naulawan sa banyaga? Gusto kag bisaya? Di man gani ka kabalo unsay bisaya sa word nga BANYAGA? Dodong ang BINISAYA sa Banyaga is LANGYAW. Banyaga is a tagalog word sa LANGYAW. Nakasabot na ka?

I would like to believe it is true that the government has done none to preserve the beach trees.
I browsed DA website, including BFAR but found nothing but fish, fish, fish, cage, cage, cage, tilapia, tilapia, tilapia, etc.

But i still believe there is or there was a long term program to this.
Let us ask Koddi Prudente. I think he was one of the think tanks about this
long time ago in cooperation with the European Union.

Koddi, where are you? Eeek pod diha.

in the first place, it was the concerned local Brunei residents who made the government to act helping save the trees. the voice of the people made themselves heard before the trees are gone, forever.

in Guindulman, it was different. after the trees fell, so were the reactions abound. the voices came, but the trees were long gone. aren't the local residents any caring and concerned? did someone try to stop the chainsaw and make a trip to the mayor's office? too bad if no one ever lifted a finger, even among those habal-habal operators and block-tienda owners, to impact a bit of awareness about the impending death of the magnificent trees. we have misplaced our courage. we root for a candidate to the last drop of our blood, as we've witnessed here at TB, yet not a single voice was heard to rally against the order while the trees were still standing.

i don't know.

but i know, most of our people have been always complacent and disconcertingly alien to our ecology. and, sadly, many have more to worry about than caring our environment; that the thud of a falling tree would only mean nothing but firewood and building materials. business as usual.

Sakto jod ka Glac.
Pagkahuman ug tumba sa kahoy ayha pa naminghoy.
Kalooy ni Poloy.


Pero sa sige pag putol ang Acacia,
ang mga habal-habal busy pa ug pamasahero.
ang mga vendors busy pa ug baligya ug snow bear ug juicy fruit.
ang uban nga dili busy, nanan-aw lang.
wala magpakabana kay walay koneksyon sa kagutom sa ilang tiyan ang acacia.
labi na sa mga pobre sa Guindulman.
Posible dihay milabay nga dato apan wala lang pod kay amigo or amiga ni Madam Mayor.
Or ang ubang dato daw wala lang. Zero social concern. Zero community participation.


In short, not to hide my feelings, walay Guindolmanon nga nagpakabana.
Kay kon naa pa, sa pagpuong pa lang sa mga sa sanga sa Acacia, diha na untay mipakgang.

Imagine, sa dili pa putlon ang punoan (which took about 25 minutes),
mag-pruning pa man sa mga sanga (which took about 25 mins to 1 hour per tree, depende sa gidaghanon sa sanga).

Mao nga nakaingon ko nga walay nagpakabana nga Guindulmanon.
During sa pagpamutol sa Acacia which possibly took a day, naglabay-labay lang sila tanan, SILENTLY.

Pagkaputol na ug pagkahipos sa tanan sagbot, ayha pa morag parrot nga pwerteng SABAA kon ngano giputol ila kahoy.

A Letter to the Municipality of Guindulman

We, the concerned Boholanos residing in the Philippines and overseas, strongly condemn the senseless cutting of century-old acacia trees in the historic town of Guindulman, Bohol.  We strongly believe that such acts of the local officials are unforgivable.

The acacia trees are not only part of the life and culture of the people, those trees stood witness of the town’s struggles, trials and triumphs. Those trees also show-cased the cultural heritage of the municipality, therefore, the aesthetic values of those  trees cannot be at par or compromised with any development project Guindulman undertakes.

We believe that persons in authority should be held accountable for their actions. What they did is a total disregard of all environmental efforts in preserving the Mother Nature, not withstanding, the insult they inflicted to the entire generation of Guindulmanons, the Bohol population and the Philippines as a whole. It is a total gross negligence leading us to believe that the incumbent mayor and the members of Sangguniang Bayan apparently abuse their powers and authorities.

The Honorable Ma. Fe Piezas, the incumbent mayor’s defense for her irresponsible acts which is for the safety of the public is a total lie. The Pacific Consultant International  (PCI), consultants of the Bohol Circumferential Road Improvement Project (BCRIP-2) did not recommend the cutting of the trees when the national highway road was built in 2006. It was indeed illogical that the trees became a hazard three years after the Japanese environmental and structural experts deemed the trees safe and part of the scenic sights along the national highways. It is highly unacceptable that the main purpose for cutting the trees is to give a prominent view of the building claimed by the municipal administration as its major accomplishment or pet project. The damages are irreparable.

The Community Environment and Natural Resources Office who issued the special permit  is also equally liable with the local officials. No matter how sick and old those trees were, concerned officials must exhaust every possible means to save them. On this aspect, they failed us.

It is therefore, our moral obligation to see to it that the perpetrators of this ecological massacre in Guindulman will answer for what they did. The pitiful trees cannot cry or beg for mercy, but we the people can seek justice on their behalf. We should always remember that we did not inherit the environment, we borrow this from our children. More than anything else, on this particular situation, we shall see to it that justice will be served.

Moreso, we urge the Department of Environment and Natural Resources to conduct an investigation on this issue, not only in this Guinldulman case, but in all future applications to avoid repetition of committing the same grievous mistakes.

Respectfully,
[/size]

Oh MY God....

Mao na ba gud ning trend nga tanang politiko bakakon, masdin ang Mayor sa Guindulman, nga unta gmay ra man ng lungsura.

Here are some excerpts from the article: "Heritage Advocates Mull Mapping of Cultural Sites"

1. Guindulman Mayor Ma. Fe Piezas did not refute the allegations that she ordered the cutting of the trees to give a wider view of the newly constructed public market. (THANK YOU AT LEAST THAT IS HONESTY)

2. The lady mayor secured the help of other municipal officials to justify her actions which she admitted was a very "unpopular" decision noting the outburst of sentiment among town floks. ( MIPALAG NAMAN DIAY GANI ANG MGA TAWO NGANO IYA GIHAPON KIPADAYON, KINSA KINING OTHER MUNICIPAL OFFICIALS?)

3. The decision to cut the trees was purportedly of public safety, first and foremost, than their preservation. ( CONFLICT SA # 1)

4. She explained that the trees have been suffering from decay as can be gleaned from the colored photos she distributed during the same meeting. The trees cannot be saved anymore because they are dying, she said.

UNSANG COLORED PHOTOS? SEGURO NAAY PILA NGA DEPEKTO KAY TIGULANG NAMAN APAN TAN-AWA ANG PICTURES DINHI SA TB.....DI BA DAKONG BAKAK KANA.

As Mike opened a thread about the acacia cuttings, I informed some friends and relatives in the USA, who knows the mayor very well. At first there was a great outcry but slowly the topic died like a ningas kogon. I insisted that we put our signatures and pay a page of a local newspaper ( I was willing to pay ), walay signatures, walay email ug laktod pagkasulti nahilom.

Dako ang akong pasalamat sa mga taga Tubag Bohol Forum members nga nagpakabana sa napotol nga karaang akasya.

I still don't understand the reason why the mayor has to cut them down. She must have known the impact on the environment. It is beutiful to see a market place adorned with greens around it. It will appear like people are really buying fresh items on that place. The only reason  I can think of is " Attention ". She must have bored or not doing enough for the community and the trees got her attention instead. Poor trees and the community!

I have just obtained an info from the DENR. The truth is that what the mayor had told the DENR that they would prone the trees. Later the DENR was surprised upon inspection that the mayor had cut all the trees, young and old, for no reason at all. Later we know the mayor just wanted her new public market be seen by all. One acacia tree was spared from the heartless massacre because the mayor could no longer find a brave soul that she could hire to cut the trees. The one who cut the giant tree mysteriously died the day after he cut that century-old tree.

If you go to Guindulman, you'd find that no soul was happy with the heartless decision of the mayor.

Seafood may be delicious but boy do they smell awful...our dried fish doesn't smell too fabulous either. The market place is the hub of the town...those trees were providing a great service. Shade, for one, a natural coolant...which is pretty healthy, people die from high blood pressure complications from the heat, it also freshens the air as it gulps tons upon tons of carbon dioxide.

This may be of little significance to others but think of all the birds that nest  in that tree...the bigger the bird population, the more birds who will eat the worms off of the crops.

Also, big trees like acacia provide shelter for spiders like the wolf spider, like our local, tapay2. Even though I don't like spiders with a passion, they do eat a lot of awful insects...and provide food for the birds.

a tree is just bigger than emotional attachment, memories and shade, i'm sure if we really dig into it, we can find a few hundred other reasons why we should preserve them.

Seriously, Ms. Wolf, yes, it's a pity that basic intellectual disciplines such as logic and ethics are lost on some professionals, including those who have taken the Hippocratic Oath.

That their basic ineptness decrees their bungling their efforts to uphold their "legacy" in the process?

Killing is everything kay beautification ang objective...

Hmm, duda ko nga Wallace Stevens fan ni siya (albeit in a sick way). In his poem "Sunday Morning", Stevens writes:

"Death is the mother of beauty; hence from her,
Alone, shall come fulfilment to our dreams
And our desires. Although she strews the leaves
Of sure obliteration on our paths,
The path sick sorrow took, the many paths
Where triumph rang its brassy phrase, or love
Whispered a little out of tenderness,
She makes the willow shiver in the sun
For maidens who were wont to sit and gaze
Upon the grass, relinquished to their feet."

Karon pa ko kahibaw nga namatay diay ang gaputol sa kahoy. On the scientific point of view dili ko mo to-o anang mga ingkanto pero nakabasa ko sa una nga ang mga kahoy dunay defense mechanism nga mo buga or emit harmful gases or chemical kung ma threatened or harmed. Kini nga mga gases na identify sa usa ka scientist nga maka cause ug hallucination. This explains nga daghang incidents nga nabuang ang gapotol sa kahoy ug ang ilang ika explain nga gihilabtan sa ingkanto. Pero siguro naka ginhawa to sila sa defense mechanism sa kahoy nga iyang gi buga.

Ang mga tao sa una superstitious man kaayo apil na adto akong Lolo nga maoy nagtanom ani nga mga kahoy. Mao nga kung may kahoy nga naputol sa pag construct aning circumferential road iya kini nga gipulihan ug Acacia Trees. Inyong makita sugod sa Baklayon hangtod sa mga parte sa Easte nga daghang dagko nga Acacia trees. Mga tanom kana sa akon Lolo ug sa iyang Cadastral Survey Team. Kadtong akong lolo taga Tagbilaran ug tungod sa iyang pagka kapatas, naka asawa siya sa akong lola sa Lungsod sa Bilar ug atbang mismo sa among ancestral house sa bilar, dunay dakong punoan nga Acacia. Gi aksyonan to ug putol sa Boheco pero gibabagan sa Mayor sa Bilar sa una. Akong nahibaw-an pod sa una mga 10 years back nga some of the Acacia trees sa Loboc giputol sa taga Boheco.

Hmm. You sounded like you are a vegetarian. But that is good if you are. I remember as a child in elementary, that I use to sit under the shade of a large acacia tree to eat my lunch of rice and fish, and enjoy its massive shelter. I did have time to visit that tree after 40 yrs and it is still there. Much bigger and proud to give shelter to the next generation.

Manay mo share pod ko sa akong fond memories ani nga mga kahoy.

Didto ko nagpasilong sa iyang bugnawng landong samtang nag kaon-kaon ug puto nga gisuroy adtong tiguwang nga vendor. Lami kaayo ang puto nga naay dahon sa saging sa likod, tag tulo dos pa ang presyo. Unya spring season to kay namuwak ang Acacia, humot kaayo may-ong ug sampaguita ang baho pero mas mild, igo nga makatabon sa baho sa buwad sa merkado.

Kadtong panahona gikan kong namista (dalang pamisita) sa Bario Kabugan diin ang lola sa akong naasawa karon nagpuyo didto.

Ug samtang naga hulat sa Saint Jude nga molabay, akong gi kulit sa maong kahoy ang heart graffiti unya may nakasulat sa tunga nga Macky love "Secret" with a date May 1988.

Manay dinhi sa maong thread, mi demand ko nga i-replenish ang mga gipangputol by planting new trees sa mga baranggay roads sa Guindulman. Unya magbutang siya ug "apology banner" atbang sa merkado. Nakasuway nako ug baktas mga 5 kilometer unya pwerteng inita, tungason pa gyud.

TO ALL BOHOLANOS WHO DEARLY LOVE THEIR HOMELAND

I am calling on all of you who cherish our rich socio-cultural heritage, a God-given gift taken care of by our forebears and handed down to us, to help me in a cause to preserve them and protect them from myopic and egocentric public officials.

The case at hand is the infamous ACACIA MASSACRE in the historic town of Guindulman. These century-old trees were cut down by local officials for a ridiculous reason: to give a visual display of a new public market that supposedly is a major accomplishment for these sitting officials.

I am a native of that place, and all of my grandparents, my father and mother and all of my loved ones who have gone before me are buried in that place which I call my hometown. I will also rest my weary soul in that town and hope to the join my foregone folks among the green grass of my homeland.

What happened to the trees in Guindulman could happen anywhere in Bohol and this generation and the next will never see them again. We could not just close our eyes and fold our arms in surrender against public officials who were elected in the guise as servants of the people. It has come to fore that these officials take the public office and the public trust as something of a POWER that they can use to impose their capricious will. As a member also of the print and broadcast media, I cannot allow these. I am sure true blooded Boholanos share the same sentiment that I do.

I may cry a river in the things happening all around us today but that could not help. This wanton disregard of our historic past must be stopped.

I am to file administrative and criminal cases against these officials and authorities of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) who conspired in these unlawful acts.

Your moral support will be my strength that will lift me up to go on. Perhaps, if not now, our children and the next generation will remember us, that we made all efforts to prepare a better world for them in their time.

Hope to hear from you all. So help me God!

Dark ang atong skin pigmentation compara sa mga caucasians, mao kusog mo absorb ang UV ug dali ra ta masakit ug skin cancer.

I can help in drafting the mechanics of implementation, from the grass root levels up to the Mayor level, including sources of funding schemes, of course the planting materials. Maybe a Tripartite Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) can be executed by TB, the LGU and DENR.

All we need, is a project proposal, submit to SB and once approved by the SB, we negotiate with DENR for the provisions of planting materials.
In order to have a legal representation of the TB or a personality to enter into an agreement, there must be an AdHoc committee that serves on interim capacity to negotiate.

It is like forming a formal organization.

There is no need for credit, once the TB spearheads the campaign it is TB. Reforestation or tree planting is only one of the many service projects that TB can do should we unite ourselves.

There is no problem with that. The petition is an advocacy type of endeavor, it is unending campaign, there is no time frame, but, what we are talking here is a direct hands-on TB project meaning,  whoever agree to join this plight must invest time, resources and efforts directly to the project.

This one has a time frame, mechanics of implementation and lots of coordination efforts.
