539 DENR-Cordillera employees take oath

 

Some 539 employees from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources-Cordillera Administrative Region and its field offices have taken their oath after their appointments and promotions were issued as prescribed under the Rationalization Plan.

 

On September 8, a mass oath taking ceremony was held at the new regional office of the DENR-CAR at the DENR Forestry Compound in Pacdal, Baguio City.

 

The oath taking was administered by Regional Director Ralph Pablo wherein 75 newly appointed and promoted employees with Salary Grades 4 to 16 coming from the DENR-CAR Regional Office.

 

The much awaited oath taking was held to coincide with the birthday celebration of Mama Mary for it to be solemn, likewise celebratory.

 

“Magpasalamat kayo sa mga sarili ninyo dahil kayo ang nagpromote sa sarili ninyo,” Pablo said during the event.

 

“Kasi kung hindi kayo nagtrabaho ng husto, wala kayo dun sa top five (endorsed for appointment and promotion). Kaya kung nasa top five kayo, ibig sabihin you gave your best that you deserved this promotion,” he further stressed.

 

Pablo being the father of the DENR-CAR reminded the appointed and promoted officials to always uphold the agency’s vision and mission and their mandates as government employees through a “DENR” acronym.

 

He summed up his advises with the following Ilocano words and phrases: D for “dalos ti puso ken panunot nga agsirbi” which means purity of heart and mind to serve; E for “emma” which means “humility”; N for “naimbag nga aramid” which means good deeds; and R for “rekta” which means enthusiasm and willingness to work.

 

The regional director also highlighted that government work should be done promptly, responsibly and resourcefully at all times.

 

Citing Pope Francis, he concluded with an encouragement for everyone to use their head for thinking, heart to feel well and hands to perform efficiently.

 

Aside from the abovementioned 75 employees, other 464 employees have already taken their oath and have assumed their designated positions earlier. This includes 24 office heads, division chiefs, provincial and city environment and natural resources officers with SG 24 and above.

 

Employees with SG 16 and below from the different field offices of DENR-CAR also had separate oath taking ceremonies in Abra on August 19; Benguet on August 20; Kalinga on August 25; Apayao on August 26; and Mountain Province last September 4.

 

Of these were the 65 newly appointed and promoted employees from PENRO-Abra; 78 from PENRO-Apayao; 81 from PENRO-Benguet; 69 from PENRO-Ifugao; 72 from PENRO-Kalinga; and 75 from PENRO-Mt. Province.

 

Another batch of appointment and promotion of employees within the DENR-CAR is expected this year.

The secret chamber of the sky blue Isuzu elf

 

Among the type of vehicles, the Truck or elf has the simplest design, wherein the back part has only its sidings and flooring.

During the first week September. the PNP personnel headed by Police Chief Inspector Jose G. Mulleda while in the performance of their duty at Callagdao Check point, Bulanao, Tabuk City checked the vehicles that pass by. When the Isuzu elf, sky blue and with galvanized body bearing plate number TGS 985 passed by and driven allegedly by a certain Duga Bucalan from Paracelis Mt. Province and his two companions, the PNP purposely checked the said elf.  They noticed that the flooring of the elf was slightly lifted with undetermined volume of sawn Narra flitches underneath.         

It was found out that the elf has a secret chamber. The chamber contains 47 pieces of Narra with a total volume of 747 board feet amounting to 55,988. The said specie is properly covered with GI flat sheet gauge 14 and welded with angle bar on its side. This also served as the flooring for the second layer.

In order to unload the said content of the elf, the police officers needed to use a crow bar to remove the cover.

The second layer was loaded with several empty fruit baskets which were made out of plastic which also look like cases of soft drinks. One plastic crate was filled with empty bottles of mineral water.

The simple design of the vehicle was really redesigned and intended to transport undocumented forest products.

The opposite sidings of the elf have built-in benches out of GI flat sheet and angle bar. Between the two benches is the space where they can pile such volume of lumber and properly covered with the said flat sheet which serves as the flooring of the second layer.

The Lumber was officially turned over to CENRO Tabuk Office. By virtue of the seizure order issued by CENR Officer Severino L. Dalutag, the administrative hearing of the case commenced in September 14, 2017.   The said vehicle is now impounded within the premises  of CENRO Tabuk.|C. Tabuk, SBBakidan
