Porbida! Gilumotan na ang tubig sa dalan diin nagaturno ang mga drayber sa trisikad alang sa ilang panginabuhi kanto sa Boulevard ug Fatima, siyudad sa Davao kay way pagkahubas. Modaghan ang tubig hinungdan nga ila nalang limasan usahay. Hinay daw kaayo ang agi sa mga nagtrabaho sa dalan kay kon naa may agi nga nahimo, bakbakon na sab pag-abot sa pila ka semana. Unta paspasan sab ang lihok aron makubsan sab ang pag-antus sa mga drayber nga namasahero.
“Sa Relocation Site ni Tinaan City of Naga Cebu. Nisamot ni sya kagrabe karon sir kay libre na baya mi ug tubig sa Apo Cement Corporation o Cemex. Actually, ang Apo jud ang motrabaho ani ug ipahabwa sa una since sila man ang nagparelocate namo diri since 1998, then siguro ila na gi turn over sa barangay ang responsibility kay kutob ra man ingon ang mga konsehal naa na daw pundo but until now, wa japon gilihok.”
Gry is once again calling on the concerned officials, especially of Tinaan, Naga, Cebu, to act on this problem.
PRESIDENT Arroyo has designated Argao, Cebu Mayor Edsel Galeos as a consultant for the National Government’s water projects, impressed as she was by the southern town’s irrigation scheme.
Arroyo, who visited Argao last May 19, saw the system that, for only P300,000, has benefited about 80 families without using any electricity.
“The President was very impressed with this because as you know this is part of the government’s program, especially that we are confronted with the global food crisis and we are trying to enhance food production,” Presidential Management Staff Chief Cerge Remonde said.
“So, she has immediately ordered the National Irrigation Administration to go to Argao to study the Galeos model. She has appointed Mayor Galeos as a national consultant for small irrigation projects,” Remonde said.
Galeos can no longer receive a separate salary as consultant because he is already a government official, but as an incentive, President Arroyo will give Argao town P20,000 per small irrigation project that the mayor can help create elsewhere in the country.
“But what is more important here is that once again, we in Cebu have shown the way. And that makes us very proud as Cebuanos. Necessity is really the mother of invention,” Remonde, who hails from Argao, also said.
Also at present, Galeos is constructing the Diosdado Macapagal Sports Complex in Argao, which he wants to finish before the town’s fiesta in September. (EOB/Sun.Star Cebu)
