Carmen - Bohol / Panaghiusa sa Carmen
« on: December 07, 2019, 08:20:12 PM »
Unprecedented "Panaghiusa"
held in Carmen
By Bohol Sunday Post: July 16, 2000
       CARMEN -- This mayor is making one unprecedented brainchild. Regardless of any political color and station in life, Mayor Pedro Budiongan Jr. assembled everybody -- whether he is a nobody or is now somebody -- to be part of Panaghiusa sa Carmen 2000.

        Panaghiusa is an ambitious project designed to gather all Carmenanons whether they are at home or abroad for a common endeavor to help the place of their birth in whatever form and substance.

         The five-day gathering kicked off right Sunday morning with a thanksgiving mass for all Carmenanons, followed by a parade going to the Carmen Sports Complex.

        Band majorettes added color to the parade as the participants marched to the music provided by the drum and bugle corps of the Katipunan High School and the Carmen Central Elementary School.

        The participants included the members of the Carmen Bohol International Foundation, Inc. (CBIFI) led by its president Romeo Jabonillo, municipal officials and employees and barangay officials and athletes.

        By 10:30 a.m., residents and visitors alike were treated to a Sinulog presentation topped with exhibition numbers from the drum and bugle corps, followed by the opening of the agro-exhibits.

       For lunch barrio fiesta style, the CBIFI members and visitors had their choice of the "bahug-bahug sa Carmen", the boodlefight or the buffet table. Being based in barangay Katipunan, soldiers of the 801st Infantry Brigade under Col. Eusebio Ramos, the commanding officer, had a field day "roughing it up" with civilians.

          On the serious side, however, the brigade later "contributed" its medical and dental teams to help the visiting doctors and medics attend to Carmenanon and non-Carmenanon patients.

         After lunch, the athletes played friendly games of basketball, volleyball, lawn tennis, chess and athletics, indigenous games like "bakya sa Carmen", modified sack race, pole climbing and tug-of-war among others. 
 
         Meanwhile, the farmers among the crowd pitted skills in "binuntanay sa lubi" or dehusking coconuts, carabao racing and horse racing. Carmen is one of the few remaining Bohol towns that still use horses for transportation in the hinterlands.

        The medical, dental and surgical mission volunteers started arriving by 3 p.m. Their sheer number could not be accommodated at the Chocolate Hills resort complex so that they were assigned to houses for home stays. The "working guests" also included doctors, medics and paramedics from the Home Reach Foundation headed by Drs. Pepe Recitas and Ramie Cadag as well as the Confederation of Boholanos in the United States and Canada (Conbusac). 

         Day 2, Monday, started with a short program at the Cong. Simeon G. Toribio Memorial Hospital (CSGTMH) recognizing the volunteers. Clinical and surgical procedures and distribution of vitamin packs started until late in the afternoon, with the volunteers breaking only for snacks and lunch.

         The third day scenario was practically the same, except that the volunteers were allowed time to unwind that night with disco and ballroom dancing sponsored by the local Department of Education, Culture and Sports (Decs) district and the municipal officials. Winners of the Agro-Fair 2000 were also awarded prizes that night.

        Consultations, surgical, medical and dental services continued on Wednesday morning. A recognition program followed after lunch, considering that part of the crew were to leave for Loon town that afternoon to conduct similar activities.

         But the remaining volunteers continued clinical activities that afternoon and the following day.

        Also on Thursday afternoon, children of the volunteers and local counterparts shared and learned "basics" in a two-way educational workshop.

        The computer wizards shared their expertise while those who grew up or even born in the USA were treated to a field trip to the Galang Farm in barangay Buenavista. They were shown how a farmer plows his field, plants rice, weeds his farm, pound and winnow rice, gather firewood, and how a fisherman catches freshwater fish using the hook and line.

        The Thursday activities were capped with cocktails and dinner.

        The Carmenanons' participation was not limited to the drum and bugle corps or the band majorettes. The panaghiusa or unity which Mayor Pedro Budiongan Jr. always emphasizes that they practice and weave into their everyday lives -- came in unquantifiable form -- organizing and coordinating the five-day affair on top of regular duties.

        For starters, the municipal government had also been preparing for the clean and green evaluation and personnel audit in addition to the officials' and employees' regular and routinary functions.

        The barangay officials have their duties, too, which they relegated to the background for the moment just so the medical mission and sportsfest, etc. will succeed.

        The CBIFI members have their own lives to live, which they voluntarily interrupted just so they can be a part of the medical mission. They could have come home for pure and simple rest and recreation, but they set leisure and pleasure aside -- for the love of Carmen and the Carmenanons.

         At the end of the mission, a partial list of patients attended to showed tooth extractions on 784 patients, harelip repair on 30 patients, myomas removed from eight patients, hernias repaired on six patients and two patients operated on for obstructions in the kidneys. Over 5,000 patients received prescriptions, medicines and vitamins.

        To top it all, the medical mission also left medical equipment and supplies for use of the CSGTMH.

Trinidad - Bohol / NPA Encounter in Trinidad town
« on: December 07, 2019, 08:14:58 PM »
Published by Bohol Sunday Post on July 16, 2000
IN MID-SEA TRANSFER
2 wounded rebs brought to Cebu
       TWO more wounded suspected rebels in the July 2 encounter in sitio Diis, barangay Kauswagan, Trinidad town were brought to Cebu for treatment three days after the encounter.

        T/Sgt. Narciso Tabaniag, team leader of the Civil Relations Service of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (CRS-AFP) operating in Bohol said the two were brought by habal-habal or motorcycle for hire from the hinterlands to the shoreline of Getafe town 92 kms. northeast of Tagbilaran City. Getafe is a northern Bohol town facing Cebu.

       Tabaniag said the operator whose pumpboat the wounded boarded on the way to Cebu reported the incident to Col. Eusebio Ramos, commanding officer of the 801st Infantry Brigade of the Philippine Army.

       Ramos' troops figured in the encounter in Diis that claimed the life of one soldier, wounded another two and killed eight suspected rebels that included a boy.

       Ramos is keeping the name of the pumpboat operator under wraps.

       However, he said, 30 minutes into the ride, when the pumpboat was between Getafe and Cebu, an unmarked speedboat met them.

       On board were five men fully armed with high-powered firearms who asked where the rest of the wounded were. 

        The wounded reportedly answered, "Tua pa sa taas (Still in the hills)."

       One had sustained a wound in the left upper chest that allegedly bled every time he talked. The other had a wound on the right portion of his abdomen.

       Tabaniag said the pumpboat operator told Ramos that a third wounded person was supposed to be with the two. The man had a wounded left knee while only a strip of skin connected his right arm to his body. 

        Some days immediately after the clash, the fishermen along the Getafe coast agreed among themselves to remove the spark plugs from their pumpboat engines to temporarily disable them.

        These will deter the rebels from using their pumpboats for the first leg of the trip to Cebu. That Wednesday morning, however, this pumpboat operator had just returned from fishing. Informed of the agreement among his peers, he returned to the shore to remove his spark plug as well.

        To his surprise, the wounded were already aboard his boat.

         Apparently afraid that their comrade would bleed to death during the pumpboat ride, and especially when he exerts effort during the speed boat transfer, they prevailed over him to return with the habal-habal.

         From radio messages it intercepted, the military gleaned that at least 20 were killed and 35 were wounded on the rebel side.

         Tabaniag said Ramos wants these wounded located so that they can be given treatment. He also wants the dead located so that they can be given a proper burial.

        Meanwhile, to ensure that government services reach the grassroots, the local government unit of Trinidad under Mayor Filadelfo Garcia, together with the 801st Infantry Brigade and the Bohol provincial government conducted a two-day medical, dental and civic action in Kauswagan on July 13 and 14.

       The town appropriated P30,000 to buy medicines and to defray incidental expenses during the two-day activity. The provincial government also provided two boxes of medicines for the purpose. (With reports from Sean Guingguing).

WE WIN AS ONE! Isang Pinoy surfer ang sinagip ang katunggaling Indonesian matapos maputol ang leg rope nito sa kasagsagan ng laban nitong Biyernes sa San Juan, La Union.

Nangunguna na sa puntos si Roger Casugay ngunit nagpaubaya siya at isinantabi ang pagiging lamang para lang maligtas si Arip Nurhidayat.

Dahil sa ipinakitang sportsmanship, pinuri si Casugay hindi lang ng kaniyang coach kundi maging ng Indonesian Surfing Team. #SEAGames2019 #GalingNatinIto | via Michelle Soriano, ABS-CBN News

Poems and Poets / A Far Cry From AfricaBy Derek Walcott

A Far Cry From Africa
By Derek Walcott

A wind is ruffling the tawny pelt
Of Africa, Kikuyu, quick as flies,
Batten upon the bloodstreams of the veldt.
Corpses are scattered through a paradise.
Only the worm, colonel of carrion, cries:
'Waste no compassion on these separate dead!'
Statistics justify and scholars seize
The salients of colonial policy.
What is that to the white child hacked in bed?
To savages, expendable as Jews?
Threshed out by beaters, the long rushes break
In a white dust of ibises whose cries
Have wheeled since civilizations dawn
>From the parched river or beast-teeming plain.
The violence of beast on beast is read
As natural law, but upright man
Seeks his divinity by inflicting pain.
Delirious as these worried beasts, his wars
Dance to the tightened carcass of a drum,
While he calls courage still that native dread
Of the white peace contracted by the dead.

Again brutish necessity wipes its hands
Upon the napkin of a dirty cause, again
A waste of our compassion, as with Spain,
The gorilla wrestles with the superman.
I who am poisoned with the blood of both,
Where shall I turn, divided to the vein?
I who have cursed
The drunken officer of British rule, how choose
Between this Africa and the English tongue I love?
Betray them both, or give back what they give?
How can I face such slaughter and be cool?
How can I turn from Africa and live?

Poems and Poets / A City's Death by FireBy Derek Walcott

A City's Death by Fire
By Derek Walcott

After that hot gospeller has levelled all but the churched sky,
I wrote the tale by tallow of a city's death by fire;
Under a candle's eye, that smoked in tears, I
Wanted to tell, in more than wax, of faiths that were snapped like wire.
All day I walked abroad among the rubbled tales,
Shocked at each wall that stood on the street like a liar;
Loud was the bird-rocked sky, and all the clouds were bales
Torn open by looting, and white, in spite of the fire.
By the smoking sea, where Christ walked, I asked, why
Should a man wax tears, when his wooden world fails?
In town, leaves were paper, but the hills were a flock of faiths;
To a boy who walked all day, each leaf was a green breath
Rebuilding a love I thought was dead as nails,
Blessing the death and the baptism by fire.

Poems and Poets / Love of Jerusalem by Yehuda Amichai
« on: December 07, 2019, 01:23:13 AM »
By Yehuda Amichai

There is a street where they sell only red meat
And there is a street where they sell only clothes and perfumes. And there
is a day when I see only cripples and the blind
And those covered with leprosy, and spastics and those with twisted lips.

Here they build a house and there they destroy
Here they dig into the earth
And there they dig into the sky,
Here they sit and there they walk
Here they hate and there they love.

But he who loves Jerusalem
By the tourist book or the prayer book
is like one who loves a women
By a manual of sex positions.

Poems and Poets / I woke up, it was the house where I was born

The House Where I Was Born
By Yves Bonnefoy

I woke up, it was the house where I was born.
It was raining softly in all the rooms,
I went from one to another, looking at
The water that shone on the mirrors
Piled up everywhere, some broken or even
Pushed between the furniture and the walls.
It was from these reflections that sometimes a face
Would emerge, laughing, of a gentleness
That was different from what the world is.
And, with a hesitant hand, I touched in the image
The tossled hair of the goddess,
Beneath the veil of the water
I could see the sad, distracted face of a little girl.
Bewilderment between being and not being,
Hand that is reluctant to touch the mist,
Then I listened as the laughter faded away
In the halls of the empty house.
Here nothing but forever the gift of the dream,
The outstretched hand that does not cross
The fast flowing water where memories vanish.
