Annual budget of Carigara government

Some Carigara councilors decry approval of town’s AIP

TACLOBAN CITY-At least four municipal councilors of Carigara, Leyte cried foul after being allegedly “disregarded” by the majority members of the local council despite the former’s attendance and objections on the recent approval of the municipal budget and Annual Investment Program (AIP).

Municipal Councilor Dennis Garay said a “democracy crisis” apparently exists in the municipal council, depriving the minority the right to object on the matters raised during their sessions. 

This after he alleged that the AIP during their recent session was approved without following procedural matters that should be followed in local budgeting and legislation.

Aggrieved by the action, he said they immediately reported and let the incident be recorded at the town police station, alleging that a copy of the annual budget was distributed among members of the council but they were not allowed to propose numbers of measures in the agenda. 

“We were not recognized. We were not allowed to cast votes despite of our presence and opposition. Our vice mayor did not even recognize us even if we were strongly manifesting for some amendments,” he alleged, referring to municipal Vice Mayor Ulpiano Arpon Jr.

The Sangunaing Bayan of Carigara approved on Wednesday last week the more than P400 million AIP along with the P108 million annual budget of the local government unit, he said yesterday.

Four of them, including councilors Eduardo Ong, Joenlee Larraga, and Ma. Annabelle Crisostomo, personally went to the Sanguniang Panlalawigan of Leyte to submit their opposition on the approved municipal budget.

He said they are requesting the provincial legislative body to recall their budget and be referred back to their local council for appropriate deliberations and budgeting processes.

“We are seeking a relief from the Sanguniang Panlalawigan of Leyte, not just to correct the defective budget but to protect the institution, to protect the local council as a local legislative body,” he stressed.

On Tuesday’s regular session of SP-Leyte, he said the matter was not heard because of some priorities of the body. (ALVIN P. CARDINES)

Coalition Team for Change
Topic: Coalition for change


 

The "glory" of our town is no more; such that the majority of the townspeople are clarmoring for change.  Accepting the challenge of becoming agents of change is a group of concerned Kalgaran-ons who have come together with a common cause to hopefully change the present administration come Elections 2010.  Their pockets are not full of gold, but the hearts are full of the "real and sincere gugma" for our hometown.  

It was just fitting that the Coalition Team for Change started day 1 of their journey in this political struggle with the celebration of the Eucharist, attended by members of their families.  Each candidate shared a prayer of intercession, giving voice to the urgent needs of our community.  Then, in a touching and symbolic ceremony, they put to flame all their concerns, aspirations and issues they want to courageously address.  Drawing strength from this first step of giving thanks to the Lord of justice, peace and love, they filed their individual certificate of candidacy without fan fare.  

We appeal to all concerned Kalgaran-ons to join in this crusade for change.  Let our voices be heard through our actions!  

"The rich and powerful take what they want.  Let us be the "good guys" to provide leverage to the so called 'weak and oppressed' in our community."

Statement of Truth
Regarding the person of Stephen Greinke and his Malicious Accusations against the Bishop of Naval.

We, the Clergy, Religious, and Faithful of the Diocese of Naval, would like to express our strongest condemnation of the lies peddled by Stephen Greinke against the Bishop of Naval, the Most Rev. Filomeno G. Bactol, D.D. last January 2. 2008, Stephen Greinke, in a nationally televised network, accused the bishop of sexually molesting young boys. We are aghast at this accusation because the Bishop is a person of integrity, whose ministry of 40 years (15 years in the seminary as formator 7 years as Pastor, and 18 years as Bishop of Naval) has never been enmeshed in any controversy, much less scandal. We are appalled even more at the brazenness of Greinke as to impute upon the good name of the bishop the very same crime he was accused of doing against innocent young boys in the very Association he had come to found, purportedly to proclaim the love of God only to find out it has become a trap for his sexual perversion! Such lies therefore that he has concocted can only come from a heart whose hatred is as deep as his own twisted understanding of what is good and moral.

Who is Stephen Greinke?
Stephen Greinke, a U.S. citizen, was a Redemptorist Brother from 1978 to 1979 with temporary vows in St. Louis Province of the Redemptorist Order in the United States of America. He left the Redemptorist Province of St. Louis having let his temporary vows expire. Later who applied for admission to the OAKWOOO Province of the same Order and took vows once again in 1984. Eventually he made his perpetual profession on August 30, 1986.

Apparently, his stay with the Congregation was fraught with difficulties for himself and for others. Hence, he requested for Exclaustration in July 1990. His exclaustration was extended several times. It terminated in the year 2000 when he finally sought and was granted the Dispensation from the vows and obligations of his profession in the Congregation.

In 1990, Stephen Greinke came to apply for work as a Religious Brother in the Diocese of Naval. In effect, he was given an invitation to work in the diocese with a motive of discerning whether a Religious Institute of Diocesan Right can be established in the diocese,:He then organized an Association of Men which he called Missionary Brothers of the Perpetual Help (MBHP) which was temporarily approved by the Bishop in September 8 of the same year.

However, his real motive soon started to manifest. He was accused of sexual molestations from no less than his Own young recruits to the association he founded. On account of these accusations, Stephen Greinke was charged before the Bureau of Immigration and Deportation. (BID). The bureau, considering the gravity of the accusations and upon finding sufficient basis, canceled his Missionary Visa and included his name in the Bureau's list of Blacklisted Aliens in the year 2000 (he was able to leave the country earlier without answering the charges against him). In the same order, the Bureau asserted that his non-appearance at the Bureau was deemed a waiver on his part to face the charges, and that on account of this, he was so "ordered deported to his country of origin."

His relationship with the people in Sitio Lupa (where his formation house was located) and in the two neighboring barangays of Calumpang and Caraycaray, all in the Municipality of Naval were always strained and fraught with difficulties. Ill tempered and ever so vindictive, Stephen Greinke would always threaten to haul people to court whenever he was provoked or whenever things would not be according to his liking. Indeed, there were a number of times when he succeeded in bringing poor people to jail and old women as well, on some unfounded charges! Not able to take it any longer, the residents of Barangay Caraycaray and sitio Lupa wrote resolutions letters declaring Stephen Greinke persona non grata and attached the Same documents to the petition of the people at the BID to have him deported.

Meantime, the clergy of the diocese saw that the community that Stephen Greinke established had gone morally and spiritually bankrupt. Not only that, it had also caused much harm, division, and undue pain among the people living nearby. That was when the clergy of the Diocese made a Resolution requesting the Bishop of Naval to dissolve and suppress the community that was recognized by the diocese. In response, the Bishop the issued a decree of Dissolution /Suppression in July 2003.

While in the United States, Greinke wrote letters accusing the Bishop and the Clergy of wrong doings, maligning their good names. One such letter was addressed to the late Holy Father John Paul II. Because of this, a Visitation and Investigation was made on the Clergy and the Bishop of Naval by the Most Rev. Jose S. Palma, D.D., then Bishop of Calbayog. The then Metropolitan Archbishop of Palo, Most Rev. Pedro R. Dean Jr., D.D., also conducted his own investigation (the Bishop of Naval being his suffragan) and refuted point by point the accusation hurled by Greinke against the Bishop and the Clergy of Naval.

Several "demolition" letters have been written by Stephen Greinke, the last being on March 2005. All these letters contained the same sweeping rehashed allegations that were substantially deceitful and which Church authorities have found to be false and without basis.

Not content until the Bishop and the clergy fall, Greinke intensified his attack this time using the internet and the media in his vendetta.

Why the unabashed hatred for the bishop and the clergy? For several reasons. One, Greinke felt aggrieved when the bishop refused to defend him when he was accused of sexual molestations that eventually led to his leaving the country. Two, the cancellation of his Missionary Visa by the BID was for him a bitter pill to swallow, and three, he felt offended when his Pious Union was suppressed and dissolved by the Bishop. This meant he could not solicit funds anymore from benefactors since his mission is already non-existent.

Offhand, we have come to wonder why these accusations against the bishop had suddenly resurfaced after these had been dealt with appropriately and expeditiously by the Church authorities years ago. We wonder because there are indications that this move to vilify the Bishop could have been also politically orchestrated by people who cannot stand the teachings of the Church. The strong adherence of the church for good governance and her vehement opposition to corruption have been the bane of many whose lives are hinged on compromises and pay-offs, to the detriment of the poor which comprise majority of God's people. If these indications are so, then Stephen Greinke has just become a dispensable pawn in the bigger picture of dirty politics. The smear campaign against the Bishop has just demonstrated how wicked can people go just so they could preserve their political interests.

THE MOST REV. FILOMENO G. BACTOL, D.D. HAS BEEN UNJUSTLY MALIGNED. HIS REPUTATION HAS BEEN UNJUSTLY TARNISHED. AND THE WORLD HAS BECOME THE UNSUSPECTING AUDIENCE OF THIS MALICIOUS CAMPAIGN AGAINST HIM AND THE INSTITUTION HE REPRESENTS.

We desire to make right what bas been undeservedly imputed to the Bishop. We wish to make it known that the Most Rev. Filomeno G. Bactol, D.D. is innocent of the charges hurled against him. The Bishop enjoys our utmost trust and confidence. On the other hand, we know Stephen Greinke. We know his person and we know his story. We know because we were victims, one way or another, of his depraved presence in our community years ago.

In the meantime, we continue to ask the maternal intercession of the Blessed Virgin for our Bishop, the Clergy and all the faithful that we may be continually enlightened and guided by the Spirit of Truth and Charity. We also pray for Stephen Greinke for while he may have caused harm and injury to the Bishop and the Church, he has remained undeniably our brother.

Signed this 8th day of January 2008.

(Editor's Note: This Statement of Truth was followed by 4 pages containing the signatures of Priests, Nuns, and Parishioners)

Please pass on to other Kalgaran-ons
Topic: A SPECIAL REPORT
 
In just one and a half days, with the combined use of military and police force, ala martial law, the buildings at the public market were demolished despite vehement objection of the market occupants and concerned citizens.  Mayor Anlie Apostol, with the assistance of her Congresswoman mother, is bent on replacing all the buildings at the public market to be financed by still unreleased P46.5 Million loan from the Landbank. 
 
Carigaranos would not object if this amount were to be used to construct additional market stalls in vacant spaces at the market site rather than replace existing buildings constructed during the last fifty years which are still in good and tenantable conditions. 
 
The motive is clear - to erase all previous landmarks and claim the "to be" constructed market as their own accomplishment - but Carigaranos to pay the loan.
 
We are appealing to all Carigaranos, wherever they are, to unite and prevent/stop this self-centered, wicked and malicious plan of the Apostols.

 A special report

 Excerpt from the Nov. 11 2006 issue of BUDYONG Vol.XIV, No.6 A publication of Carigara 400,Inc.

Villa Aurora R. Seneca. Concerned Citizen,

together with three Barangay Captains:

Clint P. Tonolete of Barangay Baybay,

Florencia A. Nitura of Barangay. Libo, and

Benjamin P. Irlandez of Barangay. Paragum filed Civil Case No. 2249 at the Regional Trial Court Branch 13, Carigara. On Sept. 14, 2006 at 3:30 PM for the Certiorari, Prohibition, and Injunction with Prayer for Temporary Restraining Order and Writ of Preliminary injunction against the Municipal Government of Carigara, Leyte, Municipal Mayor Anlie Go Apostol andSangguniang Bayan of Carigara, Leyte composed of:

Vice Mayor Remigio A. Lauron  

Ulpiano U. Arpon, Jr.

Santiago Gil G. Lloren,

Rogelio R. Candaza,

Neil de la Pena,

Anabella N. Crisostomo,

Benito B. Go, Jr.,

Myra Mae L. Cantapay; and

Land Bank of the Philippines. 

Civil Case 2249 is filed to avert or cease the release of P46,500,000.00 loan by the LGU Carigara from the Land Bank of the Philippines for the construction of the New Public Market, Transport Terminal & ice Plant.  According to the petitioners, the above are not priority projects for Carigara and the Municipal Development Council wherein some of the petitioners are members who were not convened to determine the priority of the project as required by R.A No. 7160 of the Local Government. Code of 1991, sections 106 and 296 which is the basic policy of any local government unit if ever it will avail of credit facilities. 

Petitioners were forced to file a case because, according to them, they will be very much affected financially if ever the loan is approved and released to the LGU. For sure the rentals of their leased stalls will increase, plus other charges, which the LGU will impose to keep up with its amortizations.

On the other hand Erwin R. Darantinao former SK Federation President of Carigara, Leyte (1996-2002) and was thus an ex-officio member of the Sangguniang Bayan filed a criminal case complaint with the Ombudsman on October I5, 2006 for Falsification of Public Document under Article 171 (4) of the Revised Penal Code, and administrative charges for the Commission of an Offense 1nvolving Moral Turpitude, Dishonesty, and Gross Misconduct against Hon. Mayor Anlie Go Apostol, Hon. Sangguniang Bayan Members Ulpiano U. Arpon Jr.. Alejandro C. Larraga.. Silvino Maria T. Adizas III, Anabella N. Crisosrtomo, Rogelio R. Candaza and Benito B. Go Jr.

The complaint started when Mayor Apostol deliberately and willfully lied or made untruthful statement in a narration of facts in her capacity as chairman of the Municipal Development Council wherein she signed Resolution 05209 which states that construction of the new Public Market, Terminal, and Ice Plant are priority projects of the Municipality when in fact she has not even convened the Municipal Development Council, which has the right to declare such projects as priority projects.
