Camarines Sur service improved, says PLDT
Quote:
THE PHILIPPINE Long Distance Telephone (PLDT) Co. said it had improved telecommunication services in Camarines Sur after network expansion in the area.

In a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange, the company noted that Sutherland Global Sevices, a United States-based business process outsourcing (BPO) firm, set up a hub in the area late last year.

“Last year, PLDT expanded its Domestic Fiber Optic Network (DFON) facilities in Camarines Sur as part of a major upgrade program. Since then, one of the newcomers in the area is Sutherland Global Services,” it said.

Ernesto R. Alberto, PLDT’s senior vice president, said in the same statement the company had a “calculated investment” in the area.

“It was an investment that paid off. We had also opened up opportunities for businesses to invest in the area and residential clients to have access to our new landline and broadband services,” he said.

Late last year, the company completed a P2.8-billion expansion of its network involving the installation of 1,300 kilometers of new terrestrial and submarine fiber optic cables to carry voice, data and video traffic in Bicol and the Visayas and Mindanao regions.

Senior citizen's building inaugurated
Quote:
PILI, Camarines Sur. The aspiration of the members of the Provincial Federation of Senior Citizens of Camarines Sur to have their own building or center as venue for their regular meetings or social gatherings has come into realization.

A steadfast supporter of the province's senior citizens, Gov. LRay Villafuerte made their dream come true with the construction of the new edifice located at the back of the Legislative building within the Capitol Complex which was formally blessed and inaugurated last Tuesday, February 14, Valentine's Day.

Rev. Fr. Leopoldo Zara, Parish Priest of Christ the King Parish administered the solemn ceremonial blessing of the new building in the presence of grateful officials of the federation. Personnel of the provincial government also attended to facilitate and assist the members on this momentous occasion.

The new building has spacious rooms intended for an administration office aside from session and function halls. According to PFSCACS president Jesus Taumatorgo, a room has also been reserved for a future medical clinic for the benefit of the members.

After the inauguration, the PFSCACS members convened for a simple social gathering held in the session hall to strengthen interaction and sense of camaraderie.

President Taumatorgo disclosed that their regular monthly meeting has been scheduled every second Monday of the month.

EDSA 25:Aquino leads groundbreaking of Naga obelisk
Quote:
NAGA CITY, Feb. 22 (PNA) -– President Benigno S. Aquino III on Tuesday led the groundbreaking of the Obelisk of Freedom in Naga City symbolizing the city’s contribution to the restoration of democracy during the dark days of the dictatorship leading to the installation of former President Corazon C. Aquino.

In his remarks after leading the capsule-laying signaling the start of the construction of the obelisk in Plaza Quezon along General Luna and Padre Burgos Streets here, the President lauded the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) for the establishment of the monument that symbolizes Naguenos' fight against the American and Japanese invaders in the past.

“Magsilbi sanang paalala ang monumentong ito hindi lamang sa mga Naguenos kundi sa ating mga Filipino para pangalagaan at ingatan ang ating kalayaan; huwag nating balewalain ang mga naging sakripisyo ng ating mga bayani,” the President said.

He said the obelisk will serve as a reminder to the heroism of the people of Naga City in their past and present struggles.

The President pointed out that the concrete base of the obelisk features the struggles of the Arejola brothers, General Ludivico (symbolizing the sword), and propagandist Tomas against the American invaders who captured Naga City during the Filipino-American war, and the successful short-lived liberation of the city from the Japanese intruders and their Filipino puppet government in May 1942.

The triangular obelisk will be topped by a dove representing the Naguenos' universal yearning for peace, freedom and justice while the yellow ribbon symbolizes democracy.

Joining the President in the groundbreaking rites were DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo, Camarines Sur Governor Luis Raymond Villafuerte, and Vice Mayor Gabriel Bordado.

Cabinet Secretaries present were Ramon Jesus Paje of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, and Cesar Sarino of the EDSA People Power Commission.

Housing for ex-rebels opened
Quote:
THE local government of Camarines Sur and the Southern Luzon Command of the Armed Forces (Solcom) last Tuesday inaugurated a housing project in the town of Pili for the benefit of former members of the communist New People’s Army.

At a simple ceremony, Camarines Sur Gov. Luis Ray “L-Ray” Villafuerte, Solcom commander, Lt. General Roland Detabali, and Bicol region (9th ID) military commander, Maj. Gen. Ruperto Pabustan, opened the 5.7-hectare housing project which can accommodate 100 self-detached units, which was located near the Naga Airport.

“I believe that this is one of the best ways to convince more communist rebels to return to the folds of the law.

We cannot solve the social problems that have driven them to fight the government by military solution alone,” Detabali said.

“I hope that this project will become a model for the rest of the provinces in the Bicol region and elsewhere in the country as it highlights the close cooperation between our military officials, the local residents and the local government units,” Detabali added.

Detabali and Villafuerte were joined by some 40 former members of the communist movement, many of whom were moved into tears on seeing their new homes.

Among those who expressed their gratitude were Edwin ‘Ka Marjorie’ Nazarionda, a former elementary school teacher and Protestant pastor who was lured to join the underground movement.

“I left my teaching profession because of their sweet promises such as the monthly P8,000 financial support and rice subsidy.

“I surrendered when I realized that everything was mere sweet-talk and that my family was plunged into the quagmire of extreme poverty,” said Nazarionda who is the president of the group of former rebels.

Villafuerte and Detabali also promised the former rebels of livelihood assistance.

PH environmental agency asked to recall blacksand explo permits
Quote:
Legaspi City, Bicol- The militant fisherfolk alliance Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas (Pamalakaya) on Friday said a “Great Deluge” like catastrophes are bound to happen in many of the countries coastal areas if the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) he will not recall all permits issued to magnetite mining firms and effectively stop large-scale black sand mining all over the country.

Citing the report of Pamalakaya-Eastern Visayas, the activist fishers group said of the 107 offshore mining applications in the Region VIII, 17 are applied for magnetite mining which covers several municipalities of Samar, Leyte, Southern Leyte and Biliran.

In a press statement, Pamalakaya national chair Fernando Hicap identified the 17 magnetite offshore mining activities in the region which he said will usher an era of environmental destruction, perpetual disasters and gross denial of fisherfolk livelihood across the region.

“ An across-the-nation catastrophe along coastal shores of the Philippine archipelago is in the offing if Malacanang obsessed with the Public Private Partnership (PPP) paradigm will continue to allow large-scale magnetite mining to operate like there is no tomorrow. DENR Secretary Ramon Paje is obliged to cancel all applications for triple platinum magnetite escapades,” said Hicap.

The Pamalakaya chair said DENR is now processing the applications of magnetite giants like Nicua Corporation which will cover 5,390 hectares of coastal areas in the towns of Tanauan, Tolosa, Julita and Dulag in Leyte, Kando Mining Company; 3,945 hectares (Dulag, Mayorga and Julita towns in Leyte), Rushfield Mining Company; 5,309 hectares (Palo, Tanauan and Tacloban City, Leyte) and Minoro Mining and Exploration Corporation; 6,375 hectares (Alang-alang, Sta. Fe, Jaro, Pastran and Palo, Leyte).

The other exploration firms are Citygroup Philippines Corporation, 1,694 hectares (Caibiran, Biliran and Naval in Biliran), Asian Mines Incorporated, 769 hectares (Motiong, Samar), Bridestone Mining and Development Corporation; 7,252 hectares (Hinunangan, Hinundayan and Silago, Southern Leyte), Lazarus Mining Corporation; 6,205 hectares (Carigara and Capoocan, Leyte), Oregon Mining and Development Corporation; 5,099 hectares (Babatngon and Barugo), Grand Total Exploration and Mining Corporation; 11, 686 hectares (Babatngon, Barugo, Carigara and Capoocan, Leyte) and another application covering 5,752 hectares in the municipalities of Biliran, Cabucgayan, Caibiran, Culaba and Leyte, all in Leyte), Mt. Mogan Resources and Development Corp; 3,022 hectares (Dulag, Leyte), another 15, 781 hectares in Tanauan, Tolosa, Dulag, Mayorga, MacArthur and Abuyog, and another Morgan exploration involving 25,312 hectares covering the coastal towns of Basey, Marabut and

Tacloban City and Hedlite Mining Corporation; 3,945 hectares (Dulag, Julita and Mayorga in Leyte).

“Again for the nth time around, we strongly urge President Aquino and Secretary Paje to scrap all the magnetite mining activities in Eastern Visayas and other parts of the country. We ask Mr. Aquino to recall all these PPP led black sand mining escapades and stop black sand giants from destroying the livelihood and the national patrimony of the people,” said Hicap.

Hicap said the issue of magnetite mining will be brought to the attention of the negotiating peace panels of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) and the Governemnt of the Philippines (GPH. He said an official letter of appeal is being prepared and to be submitted to both panels in soonest time possible.

Pamalakaya-Eastern Visayas said if these magnetite mining applications are approved by the DENR and Malacanang, it will promote widespread community displacement, further diminish coastline, reduce fish catch to rock bottom levels, and decrease productivity since magnetite mining in coastal areas are inherently destructive and anti-environment.

Pamalakaya-Eastern Visayas further said many studies and documentations bared black sand mining in coastal areas have resulted to coastal erosion, inundation of communities, and degradation of marine ecosystem.

Another Pamalakaya affiliate -- the Lakas ng mga Maliliit na Mangingisda ng Bicol (Lambat-Bicol) also urged DENR Secretary Ramon Paje to disapprove the application of the US-Korean firm Bogo Mining Resources Corporation. The mining firm has a pending application for offshore mining for magnetite before the Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) of DENR Region V dated November 20, 2009.

The exploration for magnetite will cover more than 17,000 hectares of municipal coastal waters in San Miguel Bay that would encompass five coastal municipalities in Camarines Sur—Sipocot, Cabusao, Calabanga, Tinambac and Siruma.

Pamalakaya vice chairperson and Lambat-Bicol regional chair Salvador France the exploration will conducted within the 15 kilometer municipal fishing waters, and the immediate impact of the magnetite exploration is the wholesale banning of municipal fishing activity and the destruction of fishing resources in San Miguel Bay once the offshore mining for magnetite is approved by the MGB and DENR regional office in Legazpi City, Albay.

“This grandmother of destruction must be stopped at all cost. We strongly urge the DENR chief in the national office to reject the application of Bogo Mining Resources and tell the capitalists of this mining firm to get out of San Miguel Bay,” said France.

The Pamalakaya leader said while waiting for DENR permit for exploration, the technical personnel of Bogo Mining Resources Corporation had started drilling operations in the five coastal municipalities to determine potential of magnetite. France said about 30,000 holes were drilled by mining personnel of Bogo since it applied for permit on November last year.

Pamalakaya said in Cabusao, about 180 hectares of mangrove areas will be uprooted to pave way for offshore magnetite mining and about 3,000 families of small fishermen in the coastal municipality will be affected by the ambitious magnetite exploration.

The group said in Calabanga, about 1,500 families of small fisherfolk will be affected once the exploration started.

Pamalakaya also noted that large-scale magnetite mining are also planned inside the Cagayan Export Processing Zone in Cagayan and in Lingayen Gulf which covers the coastal provinces of Pangasinan, La Union, Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte.

DBP boosts community services in Cam Sur
Quote:
State-owned Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) recently granted loans to a water district and a maritime school in Camarines Sur as part of its continuing efforts to help improve the delivery of social services in the province.

Francisco F. Del Rosario Jr, DBP president & chief executive officer, said the bank’s P85.7-million term loan to the Iriga City Water District (ICWD) will refinance the latter’s existing loan with the Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA). The said loan is in support of the water district’s thrust of providing safe, adequate, and potable water to its 8,940 concessionaires in Iriga City and the municipality of Nabua. Savings generated from the loan refinancing will be used for various expansion and rehabilitation projects of ICWD.

DBP also granted a P22.1-million loan to Mariners Polytechnic Colleges Foundation of Canaman, Camarines Sur, Inc. (MPCFCCI) to partly finance the construction of a three-storey school building and dormitory.

The said building will house 12 new classrooms that will improve the school’s student-to-classroom ratio, and 10 new dormitory rooms that will provide lodging facilities for students coming from neighboring municipalities. The biggest maritime school in Bicol, MPCFCCI is among the top 10 maritime schools in the country accredited by the Commission on Higher Education.

NICC doctors’ hospital soon to rise in Naga City
Cebu and Baguio among stiff rivals
Quote:
A new tertiary hospital will soon serve the health care needs of Naga City and Camarines Sur residents.

The Naga Imaging Center Cooperative (NICC) has announced the groundbreaking ceremony for the soon-to-be constructed NICC DOCTOR’S HOSPITAL along Roxas Avenue (Diversion Road) and Carnation Street, Triangulo, Naga City on Sunday, March 6, 2011 at 7:30 in the morning. The hospital will feature latest diagnostic equipments, two presidential suites, five private suites, fifty-five private rooms, semi-private rooms, wards and doctors’ clinics, among others.

The ceremony will begin with a Holy Mass at 7:30 AM, with Rev. Fr. Rogelio Largoza as celebrant. The blessing of premises, unveiling of the hospital’s building perspective and the lowering of the time capsule will follow. To grace the occasion, NICC has invited Naga City Mayor Atty. John Bongat, DOH Regional Director Dr. Nestor F. Santiago, Jr. of the Center for Health Development in Bicol and DILG Secretary Jesse M. Robredo.

NICC, in undertaking the project, envisions a modern health care facility for all, regardless of economic status. The hospital will serve as the primary catchment area of Naga City and Camarines Sur. While a reasonable income has to be attained for sustainability, NICC’s foremost concern is to provide comprehensive, affordable and quality health care service.

Construction of the hospital building is expected to be completed within a year.

NICC is a Naga-based service cooperative consisting of medical doctors, organized in June 2004. The initial membership was composed of 41 doctors headed by Dr. Olivia Tuy-Rances, a respected pediatrician. Registered with the Cooperative Development Authority with a capital of PhP 3.5M, NICC has assets amounting to about PhP 26M as of 2009. Membership now numbers to more than 100 with Dr. Francia Lim Antonio, as General Manager.

Complemented by a modern medical laboratory facility of a sister cooperative, St. Louise Laboratory, NICC operates a diagnostic facility at St. Louise Center along Mayon Avenue, Naga City.

NICC hopes to acquire a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), the first ever in Bicol. This facility will serve patients in the region as well as those from the Samar provinces and Tagkawayan and Calauag towns in the Quezon Province.

Currently, NICC Board of Directors are Dr. Olivia Tuy-Rances, Chair; Dr. Ronald F. Cervantes; Dr. Imelda T. Reyes, Board Secretary; Dr. Charissa L. Divinagracia, Treasurer; Dr. Andrew C. Espiritu; Dr. Eden B. Fernando; Dr. Felipe Federico O. Pio, Jr.; Dr. Rizalina R. Ramos and Dr. Fe A. de los Reyes.

More potential renewable energy sources in Bicol known
Quote:
LEGAZPI CITY, March 5 (PNA) – Apart from the two giant geothermal power fields in Albay and Sorsogon and hydropower facilities in Camarines Sur and Catanduanes, Bicol has several other potential sources of renewable energy capable of generating significant amount of electricity for its localities up to the Luzon Grid.

The two currently functional energy sites are the 289-megawatt (MW) Tiwi Geothermal Field being operated by Chevron Geothermal Philippines in Tiwi, Albay and the 151-MW Bacon-Manito (BacMan) Geothermal Project under the Energy Development Corporation (EDC) located within the boundaries of Manito, Albay and Bacon District of Sorsogon City.

=The still untapped potential power sources but are being subjected to preliminary exploration activities include three more geothermal resource sites at the Mt. Isarog in Camarines Sur, Mt. Labo in Camarines Norte and Mt. Bulusan in Sorsogon capable of a combine output of about 180 megawatts (MW) of power as identified in the Philippine Energy Plan (PEP) 2003-2012.

According to the Bicol regional office of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), the Philippine National Oil Company-Renewable Corporation (PNOC-RC) has been granted a survey contract covering 16,291 hectares of Mt. Isarog to validate its actual geothermal energy capability which was estimated at 70 MW.

The PNOC-Energy Development Company (EDC) on the other hand has resumed its exploratory activities at Mt. Labo using the latest in exploration technology and by the fourth quarter of this year, rehabilitation of existing access roads and cleaning of existing wells shall be undertaken in preparation to geological and geochemistry studies and geophysical surveys, the NEDA said.

In the next six years, about 40 MW of these untapped geothermal resources are targeted to be available through the development of established areas, it said.

The other untapped potential power resources that could significantly contribute to the estimated 170,000 MW theoretical capacity of this resource nationwide, according to the NEDA is the ocean energy in the two Camarines provinces as well as in Catanduanes, Batan Island in Albay and Matnog, Sorsogon.

Another are the three proposed hydroelectric plants in Barangays Osiao, Tiris and Rangas in Bacon District, Sorsogon City that according to Sorsogon Provincial Planning and Development Officer Oscar Firmanes are capable to generating a combine power output of 3.45 MWs. Development of these resources would require some P530 million.

Similar energy resources are the P314-million hydropower plant in Barangay Solong, San Miguel, Catanduanes with a rated capacity of 2.1 MW, the P213-million hydroplant plant in Barangay Hitoma, Caromoran with a rated capacity of 1.5 MW both in the island province of Catanduanes.

New hospital to boost Naga City's bid as health and wellness hub
Quote:
NAGA City, March 8 (PIA)-- As the City of Smiles pushes for a more efficient delivery of services, it also continues to remain steadfast in its bid in making this city a haven for health buffs by encouraging more health facilities to flourish and serve the Naguenos.

Just recently, Mayor John Bongat attended the groundbreaking ceremony of the Naga Imaging Center Cooperative (NICC) along Roxas Avenue , Diversion Road here. The site would soon be the location of NICC Doctor’s Hospital.

Also present during the occasion were Dr. Nestor F. Santiago Jr., DOH regional director of the Center for Health Development in Bicol and Naga City’s multi awarded mayor now DILG Secretary Jesse M. Robredo.

The tertiary hospital will feature state of the art facilities, including diagnostic equipment. It will also house presidential and private suites, 55 private rooms, semi-private rooms, wards and doctors’ clinics, among others. These facilities will cater the medical needs of all Naguenos and residents of its neighboring municipalities.

Adding to the list of medical equipment is a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), which the NICC wishes to acquire as soon as the hospital commences its operation. Once realized, the said MRI will be the first in the Bicol region and is expected to serve not only residents of the province but as well as those from Samar and Quezon province.

Driven by a common desire to serve members coming from all economic dimensions, 41 doctors, headed by Dr. Olivia Tuy-Rances, a renowned pediatrician, have initially thought of putting up a hospice which will offer a modern medical facilities yet affordable health care services. Nearing its realization, NICC is just waiting for a year to finally reach its completion.

Now, NICC boasts of 100 doctors who will be manning the service cooperative under the headship of its general manager, Dr. Francia Lim Antonio.

PNoy's sis,Viel, inaugurates 3rd preschool project in Albay
Quote:
LEGAZPI CITY, Mar 9 (PIA) – Viel Aquino-Dee, sister of President Benigno Aquino III, led the inauguration of the Aklat, Gabay at Aruga Tungo sa Pag-angat at Pag-asa (AGAPP) Foundation, Inc. pre-school project for indigent communities in Daraga town, Albay.

Yesterday’s (Mar. 8) turnover and inauguration rites were held in Daraga North Central School (DNCS), one of the big public schools in Albay province.

Dee, who was also the guest of honor of the Bicol regional celebration of the International Women’s Day, took advantage of her presence in the province and led the turnover of the 60 percent completed DNCS AGAPP school building.

AGAPP, along with the Pinoy Power Bicol Coalition of Volunteers (PPBCV), believes that the activity will be cost effective. PPBCV is the local conduit of AGAPP.

When finished, the two-room school building will include a library including books, cabinets, tables, and chairs.

Dee announced during the turnover to Department of Education (DepEd) and Daraga local government that the main donors for the DNCS AGAPP are Letty Tan, Uratex, and National Book Store for the books.

At present, there are 157 preschool children divided in six classes. Next year, the school, according to its principal Nanet Kapitbahay, expects a higher number of enrollees, hence the AGAPP building is a welcome addition to the already scarce number of schoolrooms.

Dee recognized the effort of elder sister Pinky Aquino-Abellada who personally led the turnover of two AGAPP schools in Albay last January 14 this year.

Aquino Abellada is at the forefront in the AGAPP projects while Aquino-Dee, an AGAPP honorary trustee, is at the helm of the Assisi Development Foundation working closely for indigenous groups and church assistance projects.

She was responsible for sending medicines and stuffs for the January 22 medical mission to barangays affected by the tail-end of the cold front flooding in Albay. The recipients of the donation were the barangays of Bacacay town which benefited 700 residents.

The other two-room AGAPP school buildings are located in Taysan Elementary School, this city and Anislag Resettlement Site in Daraga town.

According to PPBCV president Ofelia Samar-Sy, each AGAPP two-room buildings costs some P600,000 each.

This typhoon-proof 104 sq. m. school building can be constructed in a month’s time barring weather constraints.

Three more school buildings will soon start construction in Camarines Sur. These will rise in Bato North Central School, Nabua Pilot Central Elementary School., Romero Elementarty School in Barangay Pawili, Bula.

PPBCV has received a report from the Aboitiz Corporation expressing its willingness to assume the cost of the AGAPP school building in Tiwi, Albay while Mayor Antero Lim of Goa, Camarines Sur is ready to subsidize 50 percent of the cost of the school building.

Sy said that AGAPP targets the building of 600 pre-school buildings throughout the country within the administration of President Benigno C. Aquino III.

CamSur's Mission: Green Evolution


To be the country’s “Green Capital” is the goal of Camarines Sur.

And local government officials are passionately pursuing this mission through a massive project called the “El Verde Movement” which involves the planting of 12 million trees by 2012.

The year-long effort kicked off with a huge event, participated in by more than 73,000 local officials, civic organizations, schools, churches, NGOs, and private organizations from all parts of the province, who simultaneously planted over 500,000 trees in one hour.

“What’s important here is that the whole province is focused on one direction. The people of CamSur are showing that environment matters,” says United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Country Director Renaud Meyer said.

As the whole province rallied behind this visionary project, all eyes fell on the coastal town of Siruma, Camarines Sur, which became the site of a record- breaking event. The town and the province etched their names among other Guinness World Record holders by becoming the place where ‘Most Trees (Were) Planted Simultaneously’.

With Guinness Book of World Records adjudicator Seyda Sebasi-Gemici watching the event, the record was achieved when 6,893 participants planted 64,096 trees in one hour. The activity shattered the previous record held by India, where 50,033 trees were simultaneously planted in one area.

However, the event was done not just to break a world record. It jumpstarts the “green” movement which the provincial government aims to sustain in order to make a lasting impact to the environment.

“Our goal is not merely to break any record. Our objective is to show the world that a province, once poor and disaster- stricken, can rise above the challenges and lead the country as a progressive and pro-active environmental advocate,” says CamSur Governor Lray Villafuerte.

In order to set itself apart from other tree planting endeavors, the project has implemented measures in order to make the movement sustainable. By investing around P50 million in the project, the provincial government ties the activity with its livelihood programs giving families an opportunity to earn a living by looking after the welfare of the planted trees. Families will be given assistance through food packages or free educational subsidy for elementary and high school age family members. They will also be automatically enrolled in the PhilHealth Indigency Program.

The initiative aims to extend throughout the varying terrains of Camarines Sur. The rainforestation efforts targets the upland areas, the riverbank and lakeside protection reinforces areas from erosion. The mangroves and beaches, on the other hand, protects coastal areas while the urban greening projects aims to re-green the surrounding communities.

The EL Verde 12 Million Trees by 2012 movement aims to promote biodiversity conservation, economic development and climate change adaptation dedicated to reverse the rate of deforestation in CamSur. “This is a big step towards addressing the effects of climate change. Ang gusto natin ay maisabuhay ng bawat isa ang pangangalaga sa kalikasan,” presidential assistant for climate change Elisea Gozun said.

The campaign coincides with the UN’s thrust that marks 2011 as the International Year of Forests. It also supports DENR’s (Department of Environment and Natural Resources) National Greening Program and also pledges support to UNEP’s (United Nations Environment Program) Billion Trees campaign. “We are the first province in the Philippines to commit to the United Nation’s Billion Trees Campaign,” Governor Villafuerte said.

With the province of Camarines Sur’s name already set in the tourism industry with destinations such as the CamSur Watersports Complex, it’s timely to give back to nature what it owes. Although the El Verde movement might seem too big a dream, the efforts of all sectors of the province’s residents, this mission of planting 12 million trees by 2012 might soon be a reality, something that should be replicated by other provinces all over the country.

Biomass Power Plant soon to rise in Camarines Sur

By Lizel S. Macatangay

SIPOCOT, Camarines Sur, (PIA) ---- Joining the call for a more efficient energy production and cost-effective renewable energy, Eco Enerhiya Development Corporation (EEDC) is set to utilize the rich local agricultural wastes specifically located here and in its adjoining municipalities.

The waste which will be used as fuel for the Bio Mass Power Plant Project is found to be in abundance especially in the towns of Ragay, Sipocot and Lupi located in the first district of Camarines Sur and Libmanan in the 2nd district of the province.

Among the said municipalities, Sipocot proved to be the most ideal site due to its strategic position, having large quantities of agri wastes in their area of jurisdcition. In a study, it was found out that the standing net volume of 406,656.33 metric tons (MT) for biomass, 18.6 times the annual requirement is more than sufficient to operate the bio mass power plant.

Coconut farms can already supply 195,778.45 MT or 48 percent of the total prospective wastes.

EEDC have thought of embarking on the said endeavor basically to displace as much conventional energy as possible, dislodge 200MW worth of conventional energy with renewables, shift 100MW worth of conventional energy through efficiencies and alleviate poverty through fair trading practices with farmers.

Mr. Noriel Z. Cabanela, EEDC Project Coordinator in Camarines Sur said that the 2-megawatt output would only require about 60 metric tons of agri-waste daily.

“Given the standing net supply of 649.9 MT of biomass in the contiguous municipalities of Ragay, Sipocot, Lupi and Libmanan, the supply is already 10.8 times the requirement. Sipocot alone already accounts for a daily net volume of 169.04 MT which can supply 2.8 times the requirement needed to run the power plant,” Cabanela added.

EEDC also assured the public that the project will not in any way harm the harmonious relationship of the environment and its elements by strictly complying with their Corporate Social Responsibility. Once the plant becomes operational, the company will allocate a certain portion from its sales and allot it to the development of programs that will promote productivity and help the farmers to optimize the use of marginal lands.

Currently, EEDC is conducting the necessary steps and requirements to gain the nod and social approval of the community. Meetings and continuing dialogues have already been scheduled to assess and gauge the social acceptability of the said project. (PIA Camarines Sur/mal)

RoRo service on between CamSur and Catanduanes
Quote:
MANILA, Philippines - Philippine Port Authority (PPA) general manager Atty. Juan C. Sta. Ana has led the launching of the Roll-on, Roll-off (RoRo) service connecting the ports of Nato to Caramoan in Camarines Sur and Codon, in San Andres, Catanduanes.

Sta. Ana said that the ferry service of MV Calixta 3 in the ports around Lagonoy Gulf would attract bus operators, haulers, traders, and tourists as land travel from Metro Manila to Codon, San Andres, Catanduanes via Nato Port would be cut by two hours than the trip from Manila to Codon via Tabaco Port.

Sta. Ana is optimistic that this route would attract more foreign and local tourists to enjoy the pristine and white Boracay-like beaches of Caramoan and Catanduanes.

The new route is also consistent with the 2011 Regional Development Plan, particularly in enhancing water transport through strategic RoRo ports linking Catanduanes, Caramoan, Codon, and Nato.

The construction of the port of Codon is currently being undertaken by DoTC while the RoRo ramp would be completed by 2012.

Rep. Noli Fuentebella (4th district, Camarines Sur) thanked the PPA through GM Sta. Ana for its assistance, the latest of which is the construction of Elise Point Lighthouse in Bgy. Patitinan, Sagnay, Camarines Sur.

"The maiden voyage of MV Calixta 3 is a historic event and jumpstarts the further development of Camarines Sur," said Fuentebella.

The Port of Nato features a PPA-constructed RoRo ramp. Along with eight other municipalities, Nato and Caramoan are under the jurisdiction of the Partido Development Administration.

Another port in Siruma has been constructed by PPA that includes a RoRo ramp.

Sta. Ana also signed the memorandum of agreement (MOA), renewing the continued management and operation of the Nato Port by the PDA for another 15 years.

With the opening of the RoRo operations, the MoA extension will boost PDA's marketing promotion as well as the current traffic of the Port of Nato.

Sta. Ana stressed that the only way for the country to develop is to link its islands to enable faster transport and exchange of goods and services.

He also congratulated Gov. Cua for fostering the commercial ties between Catanduanes and Camarines Sur, initially through this pioneering ferry route. Regular trips would start in May this year when the vessel for this route arrives from China.

1.3B skyway bridge delayed by ‘local snag’
Quote:
LIBMANAN, Camarines Sur---With a budget already included in the General Appropriation Act of 2011, the construction of the P1.3-B skyway bridge, to connect this town on the west to the neighboring town of Canaman, Camarines Sur on the eastern side of Bicol River, will be completed, according to Camarines Sur’s second district Rep. Diosdado Ignacio “Dato” Arroyo.

“We’ve been working very hard (for the budget)…the fund has already been downloaded to the Department of Public Works and Highways…but there’s a problem at the local level on how to implement it,” Arroyo said.

When quizzed to elaborate what the problem is at the local level, he declined to give details but said there were delays because there are problems in the construction of roads leading to the bridge.

“On my part as a congressman I have already worked for the funds to be downloaded and if there are complications it must be resolved by the implementing agency DPWH,” Arroyo said. The skyway bridge comprised of 26-km concrete road with asphalt overlay and two bridges to be built from one islet to another islet of the Bicol River to connect to the side of Canaman from this town.

Construction of the skyway bridge started in 2009 with an initial allotment of P800M that then president and now Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo announced a year earlier during the 34th birthday of congressman-son Dato.

Designed to decongest the only road artery going to Naga City without passing by the low-lying towns of Pamplona, San Fernando and Milaor, the skyway bridge will cut travel time by 45 minutes from Naga City to Manila. The travel time from this town to Naga City will be shortened to 15 minutes from 45 minutes to one hour.

The P1.3B skyway bridge was a component of the Bicol River Basin Watershed Management Project (BRBWMP) which started in 2008.

PPA GM Juan Sta. Ana launches the first-ever RORO ferry service from Nato port to Caramoan port
Quote:








Atty. Juan C. Sta. Ana visited Bicol on March 15-16, 2011, marking his third out-of-town trip since his appointment as PPA General Manager. Accompanied by AGM for Corporate Affairs & Special Projects/Port District Manager for Southern Luzon, Hector E. Miole, Sta. Ana led the launching of the Roll-On, Roll-Off (RORO) service along the route connecting the Ports of Nato to Caramoan (both in Camarines Sur and eventually to Codon, in San Andres, Catanduanes).

The maiden voyage of MV Calixta 3 for this route is a triumph of determination and optimism among PPA, Partido Development Administration, and Catanduanes Gov. Joseph Cua. In his speech, GM Sta. Ana said that this ferry service in ports around Lagonoy Gulf will lure bus operators, haulers, traders, and tourists as they will find land travel from Metro Manila to Codon, San Andres, Catanduanes via Nato Port to be shorter by at least two hours than the trip from Manila to Codon via Tabaco Port.

Sta. Ana also added that the prospect that this route will certainly attract more foreign and local tourists to enjoy the pristine and white Boracay-like beaches of Caramoan and Catanduanes is likewise gratifying.

The new route is also consistent with the 2011 Regional Development Plan, particularly in enhancing water transport thru strategic RORO ports linking Catanduanes, Caramoan, Codon, and Nato. The construction of the port of Codon is currently being undertaken by DOTC while the RORO ramp integral to the RORO connection is scheduled to be put up by 2012. The Port of Caramoan was completed in March 2010 from PPA corporate funds.

The expeditious attainment of the region’s plan will be reliant on the government agencies’ active participation and coordinated efforts, said Cong. Noli Fuentebella. Speaking before the crowd during the MOA signing and RORO launching, Fuentebella who represents the 4th district of Camarines Sur, which includes the town of Sagnay, also thanked PPA thru GM Sta. Ana for its many assistance, the latest of which is the construction of Elise Point Lighthouse in Bgy. Patitinan, Sagnay, Camarines Sur. The maiden voyage, he continues, is a historic event and jumpstarts the further development of Camarines Sur, on one hand and the entire Philippines, on the other.

The Port of Nato features a PPA-constructed RORO ramp. Along with eight other municipalities, Nato and Caramoan are under the jurisdiction of the Partido Development Administration. Another port in Siruma has been constructed by PPA that includes a RORO ramp.

GM Sta. Ana complemented the RORO launching with his signing of the MOA, renewing the continued management and operation of the Nato Port by the PDA for another 15 years. He said that with the opening of the RORO operations, the MOA extension will boost PDA’s marketing promotion as well as the current traffic of the Port of Nato.

Sta. Ana further said that the only way for the country to develop is to link its islands to enable faster transport and exchange of goods and services. He also congratulated Gov. Cua for fostering the commercial ties between Catanduanes and Camarines Sur, initially thru this pioneering ferry route. Regular trips start in May this year when the vessel earnmarked for this route arrives from China.

Sta. Ana and Miole inspected the ports of Tabaco and Legazpi. At the PPA PMO Administration Building, Port Manager Rosenda G. Sumagaysay led the welcome program in GM’s Sta. Ana’s honor.
