LUNGSOD NG SORSOGON, Enero 14 (PIA) – Nilinaw ng Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Sorsogon na wala sa kanilang hurisdiksyon ang pagsubaybay sa presyo ng mga produktong alak at sigarilyo o mas kilala sa tawag na sin product.
Ipinaliwanag ni DTI Sorsogon Planning and Information Officer Senen Malaya na ang mga ito ay hindi kabilang sa tinatawag na basic o prime commodities na pangunahing binabatayan ng kanilang tanggapan.
Ayon pa kay Malaya, walang kautusang natanggap ang kanilang opisina mula sa DTI central office na subaybayan ang galaw ng presyo ng alak at sigarilyo kahit pa nga tumaas na ang presyo ng mga produktong ito dahilan sa epekto ng implementasyon ng Sin Tax Law.
Ang pahayag ni Malaya ay bilang reaksyon sa ilang mga sumbong sa biglaang pagtaas ng mga sin product bago pa man pumasok ang taong 2013.
Ayon sa mga sumbong, tumaas ng hanggang 30 porsyento ang halaga ng bawat kaha ng sigarilyo habang nasa 15 porsyento naman ang bawat bote ng alak noong kasagsagan ng pagdiriwang ng kapaskuhan at bagong taon.
Matandaang alinsunod sa Sin Tax Law, Enero 1, 2013 dapat na simulang ipatupad ang nasabing batas.
Sa kabila nito, tiniyak naman ni Malaya na nakahanda silang tumulong at umaksyon sakaling may mga reklamo silang matatanggap hinggil sa paglabag sa mga itinatakdang presyo o suggested retail price ng isang produkto nang sa gayon ay hindi makapagsamantala ang mga abusadong negosyante.

Gabao, Irosin, Sorsogon ang nakabenipisyo sa isinagawang medical mission, feeding program at iba pang serbisyo na pinangunahan ng UNTV sa pakikipagtulungan sa 31st Infantry Batallon ng Philippine Army na pinamumunuan ni Lt. Col. Teody Toribio.
Suportado din ang aktibidad ng 903rd Infantry Brigade ng Philippine Army sa pamumuno ni Commanding Officer Joselito E. Kakilala, mga opisyal ng Brgy. Gabao, mga guro ng Gabao National High School at iba pang mga stakeholder.
Ayon kay Capt. Arnel Sabas, Civil Military Operations Officer ng 903rd Inf Bgde, ilang mga doktor at narses mula sa ospital ng 9th Infantry Division at Rural Health Unit ng Irosin ang nagsagawa ng medical, dental at optical operations sa mga residente.
Karamihan umano sa mga ipinasuri ng mga residente ay ang sakit sa ngipin, malabong paningin, ubo, sipon at lagnat.
Nabigyan ng benepisyong medikal ang 716 na mga residente, dental - 137, optical – 469, libreng gupit – 95, nagpamasahe – 35 at 655 naman ang nabiyayaan sa feeding program kung saan pinakain ang mga ito ng masarap na lugaw.
Sa naging pahayag naman ni Commanding Officer Joselito E. Kakilala ng 903rd Infantry Brigade, pinakasuporta nila sa ganitong aktibidad ang pagtukoy ng mga lugar kung saan higit na kailangan ang medical mission base na rin sa ipinaabot na impormasyon at berepikasyon nila. At sa pakikipagtulungan sa iba’t-ibang mga organisasyon o grupo tulad ng UNTV ay nakapagsasagawa sila ng ganitong aktibidad. (BARecebido, PIA Sorsogon)
|Col. Joselito Kakilala gives message of inspiration in a medical mission.|
Col Joselito E Kakilala, the newly installed Commander of 903rd Brigade, who replaced newly promoted BGen Felix J Castro Jr AFP, as well as Lt Col Julian C Pacatan, 9IB Commanding Officer received the Command Certificates of Recognition awarded by Major Gen Romeo V Calizo, Division Commander after the New Year’s call and Command Conference at 9ID headquarters on January 10, 2013.
The 903rd Brigade covers Sorsogon and Masbate provinces in the conduct of Internal Peace and Security Operations (IPSO), while the 9IB, under the Brigade’s operational control, covers Masbate province.
Considering the imperatives of IPSP “Bayanihan” and its emphasis on both combat and non-combat dimensions of military operations, the Brigade during the period, has accomplished more than its expected output.
During the semester, the Brigade was able to neutralize 7 NPA personalities: two (2) killed unidentified lawless elements; apprehension of 3 CNN members; and one (1) surrendered.
Along with the combat operations, 24 firearms were gained (20 high powered/ 4 low powered), although many of these are outside the focus area. The recovered firearms include: eight (8) M16, one (1) M653, one (1) M14, two (2) Garand rifles, one (3) Cal. 38 revolver one (1) .45 Cal pistol; eight (8) homemade shotguns; twelve (12) landmines (Anti-tank); five (5) improvised claymore mines (Anti-personnel); thirty (30) Molotov bombs; and other subversive documents.
“Similarly, the unit pursued efforts to link with agencies that could help in the development of the communities in Sorsogon and Masbate. It has opted to focus its efforts in certain areas rather than have projects in many dispersed barangays. By pouring in development projects in selected focus areas, the improvement could easily be felt by the people and there is a higher chance of success. Neighboring communities will eventually also benefit from the improved economic environment,” he explained.
Furthermore, Col. Kakilala said the 903rd Brigade has been active in the programs of PAMANA. The PAMANA Convergence Unit for Sorsogon which involves representatives from the different government agencies has been a good venue to recommend infrastructure projects and target areas for development. The two provinces in its area have received funds for development - Sorsogon P40 million (7 focus municipalities) and Masbate P68 million (3 focus municipalities). Furthermore, in Masbate P500 million peso infrastructure projects are programmed next year.
The unit facilitated the conduct of four (4) Medical, Dental, Optical and Legal Missions sponsored by UNTV Channel 37 in Brgy San Francisco; Brgy Butag, Bulan, Sorsogon; Brgy Rizal, Sorsogon City; Brgy Poblacion, Pilar Sorsogon together with the elements of 31st Infantry Battalion, staff and volunteers of Clinic ni Kuya and Kamanggagawa Foundation Inc. with the support of Local Government Units and DepEd.
The Brigade also was able to establish links with the ABS-CBN Sagip Kapamilya Foundation, Inc for the construction of classroom buildings in Pandan National High School in Castilla, Sorsogon and another in Cabangcalan Elementary School in Aroroy, Masbate.
Moreover, the Pinoy Big Brother, Sagip Kapamliya Foundation, Maalaala Mo Kaya Program, the 903rd Infantry Brigade, 9th Infantry Battalion, and the 565th Engineer Battalion partnered in the construction of a two-classroom school building in Sitio Mababoy, Brgy Guinhadap, Monreal, Masbate.
The Lewis College and ABS-CBN are the other partners for education. The Brigade has now 22 Bayanihan scholars enrolled at the college, while 2 other scholars who took TESDA courses were sponsored by ABS-CBN foundation.
The Brigade also partnered with the Fiber Industries Development Authority (FIDA) for the abaca planting projects in Brgy Pandan and Salvacion in Castilla. The one-hectare nursery in each barangay has already been emplaced.
It is a long time program that will be benefited by these barangays as well as adjacent barangays and municipalities in the near future.
903rd Brigade has been able to perform exceedingly well in its combat and non-combat operations. This could be attributed to a pool of well-motivated, well-trained and experienced personnel who get the job done. (Cpt MPanesa, PA/ BARecebido, PIA Sorsogon)
