I posted a text last year - March 2007 and I got response from some people.

I am a Calbayognon and I am in favor of cityhood of Catbalogan (if this has not been done yet). Whoever is blocking the cityhood of this town is an ignorant. This is progress in terms of budget allocation, in terms of services and in terms of preferences.

Calbayog City missed the chance many times over the years because of too much politics. Up to now, Calbayog has not even moved an inch in progress. What is happening in my own hometown? I went home once and saw the abject poverty everywhere. People are still walking in the streets with no shirt, the "pulubi" is everywhere, no decent infrastructure and the place is desolate and dusty and dirty with the tricycles moving in every direction like kamikazes. How did this happen when Calbayog was supposed to have a rich fishing ground, a fertile agricultural land where harvest is plentiful and intellectual citizenry who can bring a lot of difference. Well, your guess is as good as mine. This is subject to debate.

I am sure there will be strong reaction for or against this text – but it is about time to call a spade a spade. There is no progress in Calbayog - in terms of alleviating the plight of the Calbayognons. Are the people there any better 10 years ago? The answer is NO. The people are poor then and still very much poor now. Nothing has changed even with the OFW migrant workers abroad.

As a Calbayognon, what am I going to do? I am prepared to do anything only if and when the locals are willing to do their share of helping themselves. I am willing to donate a large sum of money if there is a tangible project that would benefit the majority of the people. I already started sending books and other materials so the poor schoolchildren can use them as reference materials. I can facilitate the application from the different foundations that I am familiar with here in USA – so the projects can be funded.

Let me know the details of projects here in Samar including my very own Calbayog City.

When are you all going to believe, that worldwide is still on AL NINO weather storm forecast? This means, that, when it rains, it could be cold water, and you will need an extra shirt to wear, or wear a jacket. Then, when it rains for a few days, flood. Would it be nice if the manholes are properly fixed, so, it will be less a dilemma, and there won't be scooping of water in the main area of the house, and you wouldn't like looking at your furnitures soaked in waters. Haven't you noticed in Leyte, when it rains? Whose hand is AL NINO? Is AL NINO a part of Tenth Prophecy? It is said that there is AL Nino, because, an Makagarahum nga Diyos, has been offended to the many things He sees around.

Have a mass procession. All rosary beads to Our Father, and ask that, no cold water to shower in your hometowns. Every fourth of the month. This is a word from the Father, any priests from Tanauan, Tacloban and other areas of Leyte?

This is for Ms. Lucy Rebato of Gamay, Northern Samar:

Kumusta ka na! Where is Wilma Sapa now? Lucy, if you know where Wilma is residing, or if she is still in Gamay, Northern Samar, tell her that, I have requested you to talk to her. Her soul voice is very clear, perhaps, she could try talking to a priest in Gamay Catholic Church, and ask for spiritual prayers, so that, her prayers and the priest's prayers, can enter into her very soul. If she would like, she can write to me through my e-mail address, and, I can ask for her a good spiritual advice from one guide, who has been sending words and messages. If she was able to say something negative towards my being, for her, to bring that to a priest and ask for help.

**Thanks Mr. Ray P. Gaspay, for the thoughts you have extended, regarding this letter to Ms. Lucy Rebato, through your column. A communication through the mind. But for others, who are hard-believers, will not believe at all, but i have a guide, so its more like a - `mental com' ***

The new policy is unfair, it brings undue administrative problems for the employers of future OFWs. Many Filipinos will lose out on employment opportunities abroad because of this restrictive and easily abused policy.

Para sa mga kinauukulan: Kung di rin lang kayo makakatulong sa pag-unlad at pag-asenso nang mga mamamayang gustong mag trabaho sa ibang bansa- sana naman ay huwag na kayong maging perwisyo.

Please sign petition to abolish MC-4

Overseas Filipino workers would ultimately shoulder the $8,000 bond required from foreign employers under the new guidelines issued by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration governing direct hiring of OFWs, an alliance of migrants' organizations said on Friday.

Memorandum Circular No. 4 approved by the POEA board on Dec. 18, 2007 requires foreign employers directly hiring Filipino workers to post a repatriation bond of $5,000 plus $3,000 performance bond. But Connie Bragas-Regalado, chair of Migrante International, said foreign employers usually recoup recruitment costs from OFWs themselves, either through maximum exploitation of their labor or through direct deductions from their salaries.

"Mafiosi is the most apt word for the (machinist) of the new POEA policy, which exposes the administration of President Gloria Arroyo as a ruthless thug who makes sure that all the activities on its labor-exploitation alley must fall under her 'protection racket'," Regalado said. The new guidelines took effect last January 15.

Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas 2007 records show that government exactions from OFWs through the various agencies netted around P13 billion. The new POEA guidelines could be another hole in the pockets of migrant workers, Regalado said.

Migrante has joined OFWs, mostly professionals, from different countries across the globe in demanding the immediate scrapping of the new POEA guidelines. Many OFWs view the guidelines as anti-OFW because it would mean loss of employment opportunities, saying that foreign employers would rather recruit workers from other countries that do not impose bond payments. "With the POEA MC-04, it will be our jobs that will be at stake. This rule is a grave threat to our employment," said Dolores Balladares, chair of United Filipinos in Hong Kong, an affiliate of Migrante.

She said Filipino workers who are renewing their contracts with the same employer or are transferring employers because of a finished or a pre-terminated contract stand to lose their employment under the new policy. "For an employer of a domestic helper in Hong Kong or either in Middle East, this translates to almost HK$50,000 SR24,046.00 Practical and financial reasons alone will inhibit prospective employers from shelling out the amount," she said.

The required bonds, she said, would only cause confusion and inconvenience that will most likely push the employers from hiring Filipino workers. Even if the prospective employer decides not to direct hire a worker and just go through recruitment agencies, the resulting worse situation for the OFW will also likely cost his or her job, Balladares added. "Due to the high fees that recruitment agencies charge, many OFWs are forced to borrow money from financing agencies. In our experience, the serious debt situation of Filipino migrants also oftentimes leads to their termination from their jobs," she noted.

"Either which way is taken, it is us OFWs who will ultimately suffer the consequences," Balladares averred. She said the government could have crafted the new guidelines out of " increase its financial gains from the labor export industry while letting go of its responsibility for protection of and services to Filipinos abroad" and has put the livelihood itself of OFWs in a vulnerable situation.

In view of the strong opposition to the direct hiring policy, Regalado said Migrante will intensify efforts for the immediate scrapping of the new guidelines and strengthen the ongoing campaign for the ouster of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo because she would never implement policies for the genuine benefits of OFWs.

Migrante International is spearheading a signature campaign and a series of protest actions in the Philippines, Italy, Hong Kong, the Middle East and other countries against the new policy. - Please pass it on. This is a serious matter for Overseas Filipino Workers.

Maupay nga adlaw haiyo ngatanan ilabi na mga Samarnon. Unang-una, nalilipay ako nga may-ada pipira in "openly" nagpapahayag hiton ira pagtipa ha pagmina. Though ini nga pipira doesnt trully represent han mga Samarnon, but then, ini in dako nga bulig para magmata iton pipira nga nabubuta hiton lamrag han kwarta ngan kon anuman nga patapod hiton mga mining companies nga interesado la ha pag exploit hiton resources han probinsiya.

Tuod nga kinahanglan naton hin trabaho, tuod nga kinahanglan naton hin kwarta para pagsuporta hiton aton existence. Pero ayaw naton hingalimti nga nabubuhi kita diri la para ha aton kalugaringon ngan diri la ha yana. Konkreto nga ehemplo an Bagacay Mines. Yana ano iton itsura? Hain na an mga taga baryo nga naglalaum nga makakagpulos han karikuhan han ira lugar? An Bagacay in ginbayaan han Mining Company nga nagpahimulos han karikuhan, bilin nira an industrial waste ngan bangin pa ngani, a deadly toxic waste. Ha Manicani E. Samar, kuno an mga taghimaryo amo an mga trabahador, pero natuman ba? Waray. kamatuoran la,an pagmina in diri maraot kon magigin responsable an paggamit hini ngan kon magpupulos liwat an katawhan.

Pero an natatabo, pipira la an natambok an bursa samtang an iba, naghihimakuri, naiipa. Pero tiunano man ini matatabo, nga bisan an mga tawo nga involve ha pagsara han credibilidad han mining company in napapalit? DENR ngan Bureau of mines and Geo sciences, given fact ito nga pipira haira in kwarta la it katugbang! Siring pa ngani, ha dunot nga sistema han Pilipinas, kon maupay ka nga surugu-on han katawhan, duha la an imo hingangadtuan; end up behind bars or worse disappear or be taken by the rotten system!

An pagabri han minahan diri man iton problema kay kon an gin poproblema masisira an aton kalikasan, sano mag abri an mina mayplano man iton kon diin itatapon an mga waste materials sano approvaran han government.

Abrihi gad sir an imo mga mata nga kadamo hin tawo nga maupay makakaon hin usa ka bisis hin usa ka adlaw. Can the government give work to the poor? Can the NPA provide any help to the poor? Diri ka gad na estar ha liblib nga lugar nga bisan imo ipapakaon han imo mga anak obligado ka mag hatag hin revolutionary tax para diri ka pag labtan nga pag dudahan.

Kon maabrihan an minahan ha aton damo nga pamilya an matatagan hin bulig, mayda makakaon, makapagpapaeskuela pa han mga anak. Kitaa daw Sir kon hain na an aton mga doctors, engineers nga iba pa nga mga edukado, puros adto na ha abroad pag tatrabajo kay waray matrabajoan para la may ibuhi han ira pamilya, ka dako hiton nga sakripisyo nga diri mo upod an imo pamilya.

Ang Eastern Visayas Youth Council, Inc. (EVYC) ay mariing kinokondena ang pag-aresto kay Randall Echanis ng Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas (KMP) sa Silangang Bisayas. Ang mga paratang ng pamahalaan sa kanya komo miyembro ng Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas at kasama sa pagplano ng diumano'y mass grave sa Hilongos, Leyte ay pawang mga paraan upang manahimik ang mga kritiko ng gubyerno. Tahasang kinokondena ng mga kabataan ng Silangang Bisayas dito sa Metro Manila ang mga paglabag sa karapatang panatao at kalayaan sibil ng nasasakdal sa isang minaneobrang kaso. Bilang miyembro ng militanteng organisasyon ng mga magsasaka, ang pagkabilanggo ni Randall Echanis ay may pulitikal na motibasyon upang patahimikin ang mga kritiko ng gubyerno.

Ang naturang mass grave na diumano ay ginawa ng CPP-NPA nang kampanya nitong linisin ang kanyang hanay ay kwestiyonable at di-kapanipaniwala. Noong una ay pinaratangan nilang kasama sa mga nagplano sa internal purging sina Prop. Jose Ma. Sison at Rep. Satur Ocampo. Pinatunayan na ang dalawang nabanggit ay nasa kulungan at nasa solitary confinement nang maganap ang mga purging. Sa ganitong siwa, ang reputasyon ng hukuman na humahawak sa kasong ito ay lubhang kaduda-duda. Nagpapalabas ng mga warrant of arrest nang walang matibay at substansyal na basehan.

Nanawagan ang EVYC sa lahat ng kabataang mula sa Silangang Kabisayaan sa Kalakhang Maynila lalong lalo na sa mga naroon mismo sa rehiyon 8, na patuloy na ipanawagan ang kagyat na pagpapalaya ka y Randall Echanis. Responsibilidad natin komo mga pag-asa ng ating rehiyon na mailabas ang katotohanan at mapangalagaan ang interes ng karamihan. Hindi dapat tayo pumayag na manumbalik sa pagiging howling wilderness ang ating rehiyon o manumbalik ang panahon na nasa ating rehiyon ang berdugong si Palparan. Hindi dapat tayo pumayag na madiligan muli ng dugo ng mga inosenteng sibilyan ang ating kalupaan.
