    Had a very tasty and spicy burger with jalapeños, jalapeño cheese, pickles, onions, catsup at Mike's Dauin Beach Resort, and a favorite beverage. Recommended if you can take it.

    American nabbed for sexually abusing minors
    Thursday, August 20, 2015


    AN AMERICAN national allegedly involved in trafficking of male minors was arrested by authorities in Davao City on Tuesday morning.

    Village watchmen of Barangay 74-A and members of Talomo police arrested the American national identified as George William Nolana, a resident of Morales Village in Barangay 74-A, Davao City.

    He was also accused of sexually abusing eight minors.

    The eight minors (names withheld to protect their dignity), were rescued by personnel from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and City Social Services and Development Office (CSSDO).

    Chief Inspector Milgrace Driz, spokesperson for the Davao City Police Office (DCPO), said village watchmen reprimanded the eight minors after they were still on the streets as part of their Oplan Sita campaign in line with the celebration of the Kadayawan Festival.

    "Gi-endorse ang walo ka lalaki na minors sa Talomo police. Gi-interview sila sa mga police and didto sila nagsumbong na gina-abuso sila sa maong suspect (The eight minors were endorsed to the Talomo police station for questioning, wherein they claimed to have been secually abused by the suspect)," Driz told Sun.Star Davao in a phone interview Thursday afternoon.

    Driz said the eight minors admitted through their respective affidavits of the abuses they went through at the hands of the suspect.

    "Kaning mga bataa nakapuyo ni sa balay sa suspect. Ginahatagan niya ug kwarta ug pagkaon tapos gina-molestiya niya (These minors live in one house with the suspect. They were given food ang money and then were molested)," Driz said.

    Driz also reminded the parents' of the teenagers of their responsibilities over their respective children.

    "Nganong ilang gipasagdan nila ilang mga anak (They should be more responsible with their kids)," she added.

    Charges are now being readied against the suspect for violation of the Republic Act 7610, or the 'Special Protection of Children Against Abuse, Exploitation and Discrimination Act' and Republic Act 9208, or the 'Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act of 2003.”

    “We're just waiting for the affidavits of the eight minors to be submitted,” Driz said.

    All the charges against the suspect are set to be filed on Friday.

    Driz said they are already closely monitoring all activities of the foreign nationals who are now residing in the city.

    "Remind lang namo ang parents to always monitor their kids especially they are prone and vulnerable to this kind of abuses," Driz said.

    The suspect is presently detained at the Talomo police station. (KRP)

    Putting on a DI get-together next week on Wednesday from 2-5pm. First dibs goes to Gerry's on the Beach (a forum sponsor). First round of beer will be on the house, pizza will be buy one get the second half price.

    I would like this to become a regular event (either once a month or every other month). We can alternate the locations from north/south/downtown Dumaguete so that people can make it to these get-togethers in the future to accommodate as many people as possible.

    Comments/suggestions welcome for future events.

    This is how big a grizzly bears paw is. By the way, the bear is sedated and about to be tagged.

    I just came across a useful tip.
    Hold down the Ctrl button and rotating the scroll button on the mouse will expand the screen making that hard to read print larger.
    Maybe everyone else know this?
    I could be a slow learner, no one knows for sure.

    Before my last trip, I had made plans to plant a mango tree on our property, which is between Duma and Sibulan. Shortly before the trip, I was watching an interesting show about Malala, the wonderful young lady who was shot in the face by the Taliban for going to school and being outspoken on the subject. I learned that, just before she was shot, she had planted a mango tree in her yard. I decided to plant mine in her honor and name it for her. Being a former sign painter, I found the tools and supplies, around Duma, and made a sign with her name on it. Some distant relatives, whom I have not met, were using our property, without permission, to keep their goats, which was not a problem except that we had to put a fence around the tree. We planted the tree and put up my sign. A temporary fence was made until a real one could be made, but the goats got through and did some damage, fortunately not fatal. After leaving, I got word that the relatives were angry. So, how was I to know that, in Visayan, Malala means poison? I quickly got word to them the meaning of my sign, and all is well.

    Rony posted on Facebook that she took Larry to the hospital this morning because he had a heart attack.
    Pleased join me in saying a prayer for Larry and wishing him the best. I am not sure which hospital.

    Took a visit upto Valencia a couple of days ago with Dave and imp to the new coconut oil processing plant, we were shown around the plant and was interesting to see how all this was done.
    Pic 1 guys removing the husks, they do approx 800 each a day.
    Pic 2 these guys were cutting the nuts and do approx 2000 day each
    Pic 3 removing the meat from the nuts
    Pic 4 coco husks waiting to be turned into coco choir
    Pic 5 Dave next to coco choir and a pot holder
    Pic 6 finished product waiting to be shipped to the u.s
    Pic 7 company logo
    We were not allowed into the factory due to hygiene reasons but you could view through the windows.
    They pay p8 for each nut and it takes 8 nuts to make 1ltr of coco oil!
