(Enlightenment—Passage of the Day)

Q.) WHY DO YOU THINK MANY FROM OUR OWN HUMAN RACE ASPIRE TO FOLLOW THE WILL OF GOD, BUT ONLY A FEW MANAGE TO MAKE IT BY DOING THE WILL OF GOD WHICH IS THE ONLY BASIS FOR OUR ETERNAL LIFE, IN THE END?

A.) “IN A MOMENT, IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE, AT THE LAST TRUMP: FOR THE TRUMPET SHALL SOUND, AND THE DEAD SHALL BE RAISED INCORRUPTIBLE, AND WE SHALL BE CHANGED. FOR THE INCORRUPTIBLE SHALL HAVE PUT ON INCORRUPTION, AND THIS MORTAL MUST BE PUT IMMORTALITY, THEN SHALL BE BROUGHT TO PASS THE SAYING THAT IS WRITTEN. DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP IN VICTORY.” (1 Corinthians 15: 52—54) Email: jayfeliciano2@yahoo.com

WASTE of time, money and effort. Just imagine, it took them several ounces of those precious moments that should have been used up candidly and conscientiously in their thorough discussion of those salient matters up for deliberation in the city council during its weekly regular session yesterday morning (Oct. 2). Just for its introductory portion, the council ate up much of its time. Then, next, came its welcoming of the city’s pride amongst the mums here, Mrs. Worldwide 2018 Beauty Pageant Queen Ma. Ervick Apolinario Bermudez. Congrats. Ma. Bermudez! You deserve so much to be a lady queen at that. Congrats once again to our very own Ma. Ervick A. Bermudez! Abla pa c Joey E., “Dol dalaga lang le, Jun.” Mapait cun Joey boy.

I have nothing against any of these proponents, but can’t we just shorten our introduction of any guests we wish to honor, please. Even the guests themselves appear getting bored when they’re being introduced excessively and superfluously that long. See those Americans when introducing guests? It takes them just a minute or two to introduce their guests. To them, as always, time is of the essence. Pero aki canaton, hinde’ se, el pogi points amo mas importante canila. Alli lang kita bueno. Again, issue lang, nuay personalan. Besides, as taxpayers, we’ve the right to make our objective and constructive criticisms. No mas kita pa lli man onion skin. That’s the price we get when in politics. People have the right to chastise your indecorous approach and ways. No mas ba kita pensa cosa kita ta ace amu ya gayot. Hinde’ gayot se amo. Do them away! You’re wasting the time, effort and the money of the tax-paying public. Do it more conscientiously and meticulously, but in a concise manner. And take these observations from our end in stride, for if you can’t take it, then you stand to be judged in this manner: “IF YOU REJECT CRITICISM, YOU ONLY HARM YOURSELF; BUT IF YOU LISTEN TO IT, YOU GROW IN WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING.” (Proverbs 15:32)

THE City Legal Office (CLO) under Atty. Jesus Carbon  Jr. gave a week-long grace period for the contractor of the city’s Sanitary Landfill project (SLF) to complete its still unfinished job on such a gigantic task, as of yet. City Engineer Chris Navarro said his office is prepared to take the cudgel in case its contractor opts to call it quits—meaning he can’t continue any longer for reasons only known to him. Engr. Navarro said in case that happens, his office is ready to take over and finish it by all means, via administration.

We really don’t know the real score as to why its contractor fails to effect its completion, and with all due respect, its contractor they named in a dialogue as called by the city council during its weekly regular session yesterday, Oct. 2, as Engr. Noel Loon.

The construction of the city’s SLF is even a must by virtue of an enacted law that requires all local gov’t units (LGUs) to establish it--in line with its aggressive “Clean Air Act” campaign, nationwide.

Republic Act 8749, otherwise known as Clean Air Act, is a comprehensive air quality management policy and program which aims to achieve and maintain healthy air for all Filipinos. DENR, and for that matter, our CENRO (City Environment & Natural Resources Office), is the prime-mover on its supposed relentless campaign to protect us (Zamboangueños) from all these noxious and toxic matters that pollute our environment everyday in our lives.

The Phil grapples with 35 tons of garbage everyday, according to recent study on the issue. And, ZC is reportedly listed amongst the top 10 cities with the largest volume of garbage being collected per day, thus, all the more, there’s its dire need to already set up asap its own mandated SLF that’s situated in Brgy. Salaan--a site that’s even strongly opposed from the very start by the Mines & Geosciences Bureau (MGB) when a dialogue was called then in the past whether to approve or not the city’s proposed site for its own required SLF.

Na, aura, ma problema se SL Faton, cay ta tene lang dao slippage, no matter what any contractor tries to remedy its plight. Why? That Salaan site is not ideal for the construction of an SLF, Pencing,” reviled a concerned citizen attending yesterday’s very dialogue. Mira se, kamo! (By Jun Feliciano) (30)
