CSC Kapariz Joins Coastal Clean Up; Leads Tree Planting Drive

The Kabataang Pangarap Ni Rizal (Kapariz), a central student organization of the Catanduanes State Colleges joined the coastal clean up drive in observance of the International Coastal Clean Up Day on September 18, along the shorelines of Concepcion, Salvacion and San Vicente, Virac and in Cabugao and Batalay in Bato.

The organization also spearheaded a tree planting drive along the stretch of national roads in Valencia, Bigaa, Sto. Domingo and Palta Small, Virac on September 11.

CSC NSTP students, the Biological Science Society officers and members, and MAT Biology and Physics students of the CSC Graduate School also took part in the activity.

According to Mr. Rey T. Soneja, adviser of Kapariz, their participation to the activity is in response to the invitation of the DENR Provincial Office. He said this is also in line with their association’s advocacy on environmental conservation and awareness.

Kapariz earlier led a group of more than 350 CSC students taking up Rizal Course in the simultaneous planting of Acacia (Rain Tree) seedlings along the national roads in the barangays of Valencia, Bigaa, and Sto. Domingo and Palta Small, Virac on September 11, 2010.

Volunteer students at CSC who are enrolled in several Social Science subjects such as Environmental Economics, History, Philippine Government and Constitution and General Psychology also participated in the activity.

The tree planting drive started at 7:30 A.M. through a walkathon from the CSC main campus to the designated areas along the almost five-kilometer stretch of the national road to barangay Palta Small.

The DENR-PENRO-CENRO provided 2,000 pieces of Acacia seedlings to the CSC for the activity.

The tree planting is among the lined-up projects of the organization this first semester to instill environmental conservation and awareness among its members.

Soneja said a culminating activity for this semester is also set on September 29, 2010. With the theme, "Rizalismo sa Ika-21 Dantaon," KAPARIZ members will present cultural shows and academic contest at the CSC Gymnasium.

All CSC students enrolled in Rizal Course are members of the Kapariz CSC Chapter.

Kabataang Pangarap ni Rizal is a recognized socio-civic organization which advocates the ideals and teachings of the national hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal. (CSC)

DMCI Offers to Put Up Coal Power Plant Here

One of the country’s power industry big players, DMCI Power Corporation, has reportedly offered to establish a coal-fired power plant in Catanduanes, with coal to be sourced from its parent company’s mine in Semirara island. First Catanduanes Electric Cooperative, Inc. (FICELCO) General Manager Engr. Samuel Laynes confirmed in a press conference last week that DMCI-PC officials communicated to the cooperative its intention to join the Catanduanes grid as a new power provider and to put up a 7.5-megawatt coal-fired power plant using coal mined from the country’s largest coal mine in Semirara island in Antique. Another 7.5-MW coal-fired plant would also be installed in the next few years once the first is on line.

GM Laynes disclosed that DMCI has assured that brand-new equipment would be install…

SC Rules LGU's Power Over Small-Scale Mining Deals Not Absolute

In a 20-page ruling, the SC en banc said the enforcement of the small-scale mining law to the provincial government is subject to the supervision, control and review of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. The SC, through Associate Justice Diosdado M. Peralta, said under the Administrative Code of 1987, the DENR is empowered to carry out the constitutional mandate of controlling and supervising the exploration, development, utilization, and conservation of the country's natural resources. Hence, the enforcement of small-scale mining law in the provinces is made subject to the supervision, control and review of the DENR under the Local Government Code of 1991, while the People's Small-Scale Mining Act of 1991 provides that the People's Small-Scale Mining Program is to be implemented by the DENR Secretary in …
