"This might be the last time that we'll face each other, and I want to make sure to give everything I have. My confidence is through the roof, though I am not taking him lightly. I am taking a very careful approach because I really want to end up on top." - Kevin ' The Silencer' Belingon

HERO: Igorot Medic Succumbed to COVID-19

MARAWI VETERAN, FLIGHT SURGEON, COVID 19 WARRIOR and SOLDIER... Rest in Peace, MAJOR ALDRIN C. SUKIL-AP, Medical Corps, Philippine Air Force.

Medical frontliner Dr. Sukil-ap, only 42 years old, from Benguet, succumbed Tuesday, September 22, after a hard battle against COVID-19. He could be the first COVID casualty in the AFP's Medical Corps.

He was also a Marawi hero and had been deployed may times in Jolo as flight surgeon, ensuring that the wounded and sick were properly transported to a definitive treatment facility.

His colleagues describe him as a "most sought after" medical officer "because hindi siya tumatangging tumingin ng pasyente anytime of the day" and "is well loved by young and old patients alike because he was a kindhearted medical officer." He was also described as very health conscious.

His last assignment was at Headquarters, PAF in Pasay City, although he still accommodated patients at the Air Force General Hospital as an Internal Medicine specialist.

Major Sukil-ap's remains lie in state at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.

Deepest sympathies and condolences to his family and loved ones, especially to his wife, Major Sheila Pineda Sukil-ap, also from the Medical Corps.

Thank you for your great service to the nation, Sir.

AM I QUALIFIED? Joel Junsay asks as he tries to process his papers to qualify for the PHP100,000 the national government could give to medical health care workers who recovered from the coronavirus disease (Covdi-19).

Junsay was also the first Baguio case to come out in the open to facilitate contact tracing.

The Department of Health in the Cordillera Administrative Region (DOH-CAR) on Tuesday said only one of the 20 medical health care front line workers who was afflicted with the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) is eligible to the PHP100,000 financial assistance of the government.

"There is only one who qualifies. When I called the infectious disease center at the BGH (Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center), mild cases sila (they have mild cases)," said Dr. Amelita Pangilinan, DOH-CAR regional director in a press conference.

She said the beneficiary was already able to get the PHP100,000 last Saturday.

The beneficiary, who has a heart problem was classified as a "critical case" because his illnesses were aggravated while he was suffering from Covid-19, which made the person eligible for the assistance of the government.

"This is a continuing benefit," Pangilinan said.

It's time we stood up for our soldiers and the faulty policies of the PNP as a whole, that's due to Political influence rather than true Service to the people.

#HUSTISYAparaKayMAJINDAMMOGatsakanyangTropa
Nataraki, Magiting na Scout Ranger, PMA alumna, matinik na Intelligence Officer , sayang at nalagas ang kanyang buhay sa kamay ng ilang Jolo policemen.

Let us say a one-minute prayer for the soul of the late Major Marvin Indammog, SR Class 170-08. Tubong Kalinga at member ng PMA Class 2006 si late Ranger Indammog. Nag tenyente at nag kapitan sa mga ASG at SPSG areas, lumipat lamang siya sa ISU nuong 2014. Kahapon, pinatay siya at tatlong kasama niya sa Sulu. Siya ang pang apat na KIA sa 52 Rangers ng PMA Class 2006. Condolence sa Indammog family. Kasalukuyan din ngayon nag oorganize ng support ang SRAA Kalinga under kay President Jan Allen Tomamman.

Bishop Victor Bendico of the Diocese of Baguio on Saturday assailed the cutting of 53 pine trees and one Norfolk fir by a real estate developer, which also caused an uproar among officials and city residents.

The property developer on June 20 began clearing the trees on the heavily forested hills of Barangay Outlook Drive for a 12-story residential condominium.

Bendico said the diocese "strongly opposes and considers as unacceptable the continuing mass killing of full grown and healthy trees."

He said in a statement that the developer's move "gravely rejects the moral principle of the social doctrine of the Church on safeguarding the environment."
