DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS FOR LOON AND JAGNA TOWNS THAT CAN BE DUPLICATED IN

SOME OTHER SIMILAR AREAS

DATE : November 30, 2018


TO : Pres Tay Digong Duterte & Sec. Evasco
FROM : Arnulfo Yu Laniba & Alex E. Badilla
OBJECTIVE : To get a landslide win of 95% votes in Loon, Maribojoc and Jagna towns for Sec Evasco
as Bohol governor and companions
RE : Strategies/ Platforms to achieve that 95% votes from Loonanons, Maribojocanons and
Jagnaanons without using vote money

Introduction:

Dearest tay Digong:

I am writing to you and to sec Evasco to suggest to you a few but very “heavy weight” projects/ platforms
which can duplicate your 2016 “WIN BY DEEDS, WITHOUT VOTEBUYING” approach in election.

In your own example, I see the greater power of DEED, done and completed act, not ongoing act, how
powerful it is to convince voters to elect you, despite of their being habitualized to voteselling!

Your deed, namely: Davao City, e.g., having turned around this city which was formerly full of crimes,
immoralities and filth – for you to have made it (not just in process, but a done DEED! – a more or less
finished and completed project) into a city of peace, decency, neatness, righteousness, compassion and
great progress – this DEED is so powerful and so convincing that the Filipino voters who are by majority
money-minded and used to sell their votes, stopped buying votes and voted you for to be our President out
of their own free will and volition, without receiving even a centavo from you!

Thus, first, this DEED became a “to see is to believe” thing which majority of the Filipinos subscribe,
instead of the “To believe is to see” approach. Filipinos demand physical, actual proofs, not mental
assurances or promises.

Secondly, this DEED become a more reliable “promise not made to be broken” sale to the electorate.
When you said to the Filipino people, during the campaign period, “I promise to make the Philippines like
Davao: drug addiction solved, drug addicts rehabilitated, your children protected from the drug lords,
heinous crimes stopped, immorality curbed, peace and cleanliness restored and maintained, for life,
livelihood and business to progress!” – we the Filipino people did not consider it to be “among the
promises of politicians that were made to be broken.” Because you have demonstrated it in Davao City,
then, we believed you know the way.

Thirdly, now THIS PROMISE IS BEING FULFILLED FROM DAY ONE OF YOUR OFFICE AS
PRESIDENT OF THIS NATION!
And so the trust and support of the people is increasing and solidifying. God bless you tay Digong!

Tay, we do not have, however, your 20 years of leading Davao City. Strictly and honestly speaking, we do
not have a DEED yet.

So, in its place (and we recognize this is weaker than the DID & DONE DEED), is a PLAN, but we hope
that with your help, we can quickly convert this PLAN into a minor DEED, namely: DEMO or a PILOT
PROJECT, by hurriedly implementing the plan in the following few months (less than a year) as far as we
can go, before the May 2019 election, such as perhaps we will be up to organizing the hollowblock
makers and small contractors and then, can accomplish one hill as “demo” shortly before the May 2019
election.

We must try not to present this platform to the people as PURE THEORY PLAN, but that there will be a
DEMO to SUPPORT THE WHOLE PLAN.

What we are trying to prove here is that the PLAN WITH A DEMO might serve next to DEED!
This can be done in just even one to two months with all the help and assistance you can give, e.g., in the
form of financing, equipment, manpower, etc. We suggest you do this via the members formed into a
cooperative or association. And we ask that the funding shall come direct from the Office of the President,
to ensure… a fast implementation and less or without hindrance.

Unfortunately, I cannot focus on this task because I am busy with other ideas and development of systems
and solutions in other problem areas, but I recommend to you my brother-in-law, manong Alex (Calixto
Badilla), a distant cousin of sec. Evasco, and who hails for Cansubayon, Loon.

Nong Alex is very competent and suited to this job, for the following experiences that he has, as follows:
1. years of familiarity in construction, having worked in CDCP (Bukidnon area) for many years;
2. years of familiarity of a cooperative, having worked in BOHECO for many years;
3. he handled management/supervisory function in BOHECO;
4. he also was in-charge of organizing local BOHECO members;
5. as to the skill to guide the farmers convert their new terraced farms into organic farms, nong Alex
also has some knowledge in organic farming;

So, he can do the organizing (I will also assist), and the actual creation of the DEMO hill.

So, I hope I have given you both the IDEA as well as the RIGHT MAN to take charge in the
implementation of the idea, to ensure success and to achieve our goal of at least 95% votes for the
EVASCO Governorship, in the three towns of Loon, Maribojoc and Jagna first, and then, when the news
of our successful DEMOs spread, this will also earn additional votes in other towns.

We are connecting this to election, where resources can be more abundant, but God knows our love for
our less privileged and suffering countrymen is the real deep reason for all of these plans.

A toast to our victory for our poor countrymen!

Yours truly,

Cocoy Yu Laniba
0910 1247 414

Dear gaw Leoncio,

This is Alex (Calixto) Badilla, your distant relative in Loon.

At first I did not expect that the idea of my younger brother-in-law Cocoy will unfold like this and that I
can fit into the picture.

However, I am happy for what is envisioned, to be a part of the plan, vision and finally in the action, if
you will give your trust to me.

We have been a supporter to the cause of President Duterte as well as of your emphasis on organic
farming as demonstrated in your organic farm project in Maribojoc.

Gaw, I am already retired from the BOHECO work, and am 68 years old, and am concentrating in my
small farm in Jagna. With the help of our Lord, I am presently enjoying an increasingly better health than
I see in my contemporaries who are suffering different kinds of illnesses.

I will therefore consider it a great privilege if God will give me additional opportunity to be of service to
our country… with your support.

Please read our proposed platforms/ projects and please consider owning them so as to give your
candidacy the greater merit and reputation which we earnestly need this election season to help ensure
your victory to the governorship.

Yours truly,
Alex
Strategy-platform # 1: EXTRACT LIMESTONES FROM HILLS AND
MOUNTAINS FOR HOLLOWBLOCK AND LEAVE THEM AS FARM
TERRACES!
That is,
TURN HILLS AND MOUNTAINS INTO FARM/RICE TERRACES IN RETURN FOR
CONCESSIONING THE LIMESTONE TO OUR LOCAL HOLLOWBLOCK MAKERS &
CONTRACTORS.

That is,
CONCESSION THE LOON AND MARIBOJOC HILLS AND MOUNTAINS TO LOCAL
HOLLOWBLOCK MAKERS AND CONTRACTORS TO EXTRACT LIMESTONE FOR
HOLLOWBLOCKS AND CONTRUCTION, ON CONDITION THAT THEIR QUARRYING METHOD
WILL RESTRUCTURE THE HILLS AND MOUNTAINS INTO RICE/FARM TERRACES!

Contact all local hollowblock makers and contractors to concession the limestone. All contractors will be
only Loonanons and Maribojocanons, advisably to form an organization, so that the business income,
taxes and jobs generated are confined or rather prioritized to the poor constituents of these two poor
towns, e.g., to even call back home those who left home and work far away from home and their families.
.
One of the first tasks is to gather all local hollowblock makers and contractors, organize them, and work
to grant them the rights to extract limestone for the said purposes.

We will not allow other concessioners/ contractors from other towns, provinces or nations, for the
expressed reasons that we want our small local businessmen, and local workers to get the benefits.

Financing to each shall be coming from the National Government, e.g., from the Office of the President.
Subsidy shall be given to concessioners with hills of less limestone to cover the cost of farm terraces.

Qualifications for concessioners:


1. Must be a hollowblock maker or a contractor (vertical or horizontal) for at least one year.
2. Agrees and commits to the goal of quarrying the limestone to convert the hill or mountain, or
slope, etc., into rice/ farm terraces. (Note: This is responsible and visionary mining.)

Strategy-platform # 2: SOLVE THE PROBLEMATIC FISHING
INDUSTRY WITH THE FIVE-POINT SOLUTION:
(1) INCREASE TREES (PREFERABLY FRUIT TREES) TO SUPPLY
THE SEAS WITH FOREST JUICES;
(2) VERMI-CULTURE, ALSO FOR LEAVES JUICE AS FEEDS OF
THE PLANKTONS,
(3) FISH SANCTUARY,
(4 FISHING OFF DURING EGG-SEASON &
(5) QUALIZATION OF FISHING GEAR FOR ALL, BOTH RICH AND
POOR

Problems chain # 1 in the fishing industry: THE FISH DEPLETION PROCESS


 Decreasing supply of forest juice as liquid food to planktons;
 Decreasing population of planktons as food of the small fishes;
 Decreasing population of small fishes as food of the larger fishes;
 General decrease in fish population >
 Low catch by fishermen>
 The need to go to deep seas and invest in expensive fishing gears>
 High prices in the market >
 Making life of our poor population more difficult, because a large percentage of their small family
income is consumed for viand;
Solution: (1) increase the forest preferably fruit trees to give variety of nutrients for the fishes in the form
of forest-leaves-fruit juices from decaying leaves and fruits; (2) install vermiculture in strategic locations
in the upper barangays, e.g., beside fords or riverlets where the vermicast can be poured and sent to the
planktons in the seas.

Problems chain # 2 in the fishing industry: THE OXYGEN DEPLETION


PROCESS
 Decreasing supply of forest juice as liquid food to planktons;
 Decreasing population of planktons as PRODUCERS OF OXYGEN, along with the plantrees.
NOTE: The planktons produce oxygen by eating up/ swallowing all elements in the forest juice
except oxygen which the planktons release to the atmosphere!
 Decreasing amount of oxygen;
 While on the other hand polluted air increases with burnt fossil fuel, and other pollutants;
 Lung poisoning>
 Illness in the respiratory system>
 Disability or slowing down in productivity>
 While expenses (medication) increases!
Solution: (1) Increase plantrees for oxygen production; (2) Increase forest juices through enlargement of
forest/orchard and increase of vermiculture to increase the population of planktons to help increase the
supply of oxygen and increase health and healing!

Problem chain # 3: The continued pouring of toxic chemicals into the rivers
and seas
 Toxic chemicals from mines and toxic municipal-city-and-industrial wastes, e.g., mercury, and
other heavy metals, swallowed up by fish >
 Causing illnesses of the body and brain>
 Increasing expenses due to health bills>
 Disability or slowing down in productivity>
 Thus, increased poverty and misery>
 And so on and so forth!

Solution: Pour into the fords and rivers forest juices, instead of mercury and other toxic chemicals! In this
way, as pointed out in the famous movie Point Break, we can offset (compensate, amend) the misdeeds of
our fellowmen who damage parts of Mother Earth in their mining and other faulty businesses!

Problem chain # 4: Making the benefits of fish sanctuaries cover also the
poor fishermen
 Fish sanctuary (good point!)>
 Increased number and sizes of fishes (another good point!)>
 Presence of large fishing boats (likom, etc.) at the edge of the 15-km boundary, at the deep-sea
edge of the fish sanctuary, literally obeying the law, but in spirit is violating it, thus, giving
suffering to poor marginal fishermen, because at the edge of the boundary, their fishing lights are
effective in attracting the fishes to their nets, leaving less or none for the marginal poor fishermen!
 Another problem for the poor fishermen: Taxes (money contributed by the people) are not used to
buy fishing gears to equip our poor fishermen with sufficient or equally strong and capable fishing
gear. NOTE: Our government is democracy or representative government, where at least the top
officials in our government are elected by the people so that they carry the will of the people, and
appoint lower officials or subordinates to fill their divisions (e.g., DENR) who will further carry or
meet the will of the people. Question: What is really the will of the people – what do the people
want – regarding this suffering in the fishing industry: allow bad laws to continue to allow the rich
to harvest the produce of the sanctuaries and to prevent the poor from sharing in the bounty of the
harvest, or is it the will of the people to equip the poor brother fishermen with equally capable
fishing gear – is it the will of the people to make all fishing equipment uniform in every level, that
is, same sizes for level one (close to the shore), same sizes for level two (bigger boats and bigger
nets) in the deeper seas, and so on and so forth, and to prohibit the big ones to mix with the lower
level/ smaller sizes.

Conclusion: Fish sanctuaries not serving the poor fishermen, but the rich fishermen!

Solution: Use the fish sanctuaries for the upliftment of both rich and poor, by (1) prohibiting larger
fishing boats and equipment, (2) equipping all fishermen with uniform fishing boats and nets in the
given area or fishing level; (3) criminalizing the inability of municipal mayors and governors to
provide their poor fishermen with the fishing gears required in their given area of fishing. Bawal ang
equipment-less or ill-equipped fishermen who are using methods destructive to the corals, fishes, etc.
or which prevent them catching enough fish.

Problem chain # 5: Catching/selling/consuming “pregnant” fishes


 Decreasing population/ quantity of fish>
 Catching the “pregnant” mother fishes>
 Millions of eggs that could have grown into big adult fishes to give both income and enough food
at lower prices to both fishermen-businessmen and consumers!

Solution:
1) Law first to eventually become part of the character and system/ way of life of the people: Sabbath
(off or rest) from fishing during breeding/egg season where all fishermen shall go up to the
mountains to take care of the forest/orchards as well as the vermiculture to increase forest juices!
2) Hire the fishing-off (resting) fishermen to tend the forest-orchard and vermiculture!
SOLUTION SUMMARY
What shall we do to increase fish catch, lower fish prices, and heal both poverty of health and pocket of
all parties concerned?

Answer: The following are the most immediate course of actions:


1. FOREST/ORCHARD. Expand forest/ orchard. Create forest where there is none, or the previous
one had died. Prioritize the area which has a river or a valley flood route to deliver forest juices to
the seas.
2. VERMICULTURE. Install and operate vermi-culture facilities all over the upland near rice fields
(to provide organic fertilizers to farms) but also to help produce forest juices (leaves juices) to
serve as liquid feeds to planktons and send these liquid forest juices via the fords or riverlets
connected to and leading to the big River to feed the planktons waiting in the mouth of the River
and in the seas.

So, double purpose of vermicast: (a) as organic fertilizer to the upland farm and (b) as liquid/semi-
liquid feeds to the fishes.

While the qualm-less greedy miners and other businessmen have been sending the fishes with
toxic mercury and other chemicals from the mountains which has poisoned fresh waters, salt
waters, fishes, animals, plants, and human beings, we will OFFSET THAT IRRESPONSIBLE
ACT of our fellowmen BY SENDING ORGANIC FEEDS TO OUR PLANKTONS AND
FISHES! FOREST JUICES FROM LEAVES AND FRUITS via the rivers and rain floods.

Bonus effect: The huge increase planktons also means huge increase of the supply of oxygen,
because before the planktons could be eaten by the fishes, they first had “eaten” (or drunk) the
forest juices which means: swallowing all elements except oxygen which the plankton spit out or
release to the atmosphere – fresh and revitalized oxygen!!!

It is estimated that the planktons on the surface of the seas and oceans, are responsible of
producing 80% of the total oxygen available to mankind, which supply is now also depleted and
insufficient, due to the death of forest resulting to the death of planktons, which resulted man’s
lack of oxygen and over-supply of toxic polluted air from the cities and vehicles and factories,
etc., resulting many people sick and dying from respiratory-related diseases!

Note: Nobel prize winner Dr. Pauling said, “Enough supply of oxygen in the body can ward off all
diseases and heal all existing diseases!”
3. SANCTUARY. SHARE the produce or harvest of the fish sanctuaries to the poor. Treat the fish
sanctuary as fishpond, that is, feed also the fish.
4. BE TRUE TO OUR “REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT” SYSTEM (DEMOCRACY) BY
BUYING OUR POOR FISHERMEN WITH UNIFORM FISHING EQUIPMENT.
5. BAN FISHING DURING BREEDING SEASON.
6. Hire our “time-off” fishermen to help tend the forest and vermiculture.
7. Increase supply of fresh oxygen via plantrees and planktons for disease prevention, and increased
health which spells into productivity, profitability, and prosperity!

If you want to find a people doing this, I recommend we go to Japan! It is reported that Japan is now
100% organic, has their fishermen stop catching pregnant fishes long time ago, tend their forest many
years ago, and I guess, are also helping their farmers operate the highly-beneficial and important
vermiculture!!!

NOTE: The pilot “FOREST AND VERMICULTURE” PROJECT can be started in the barangays supply
waters to the Moalong River of Loon, as well as in the barangays supplying waters to two Pagina rivers in
Jagna.
Strategy-platform # 3: (FOR JAGNA TOWN) DEVELOP PAGINA
HILL WHICH OCCUPIES 2/3 OF THE TOTAL AREA OF BGY
PAGINA, INTO A TOURIST-PERMACULTURE SPOT!
RATIONALE:
For all these years until now, the Pagina Hill which occupies 2/3 to ¾ of the total area of barangay Pagina
has not been useful, has been idle.

Yet, it has the following potentials, not yet discovered:


1) Being in the towncenter and having the tallest top in the town center, Pagina Hill provides the best
and perfect viewing position to see the beauty of Jagna town, its rice fields, its seas, its town
center, its famous wharf, its upper mountain ranges!
2) Ideal for passengers before they ride the ship to Mindanao!
3) It will have at least two features: tourist attraction and organic agriculture.
4) Therefore, stores or businesses operating inside the Hill shall be required to tend a flower and fruit
garden surrounding their store!
5) Three features to insert: Beauty, Productivity and Health.
6) Bonus: All barangay facilities (e.g., barangay hall, day care, elementary school, health center, etc)
will also be transferred up to the Hill to maximize safety not possible at the present location of
barangay center beside the sea port where, for example, day care kids are exposed to the risk of
tsunami, storm, drowning, and the like on a daily basis!
