John ‘Eric’ Tolentino Medina was on his way home after providing a home service massage to a friend (as part of his extra income to support his family). While waiting for a passenger jeepney bound for Angono, he walked a block further to a place where less passengers are waiting. Until he reached San Martin Subd., in Brgy. San Isidro, Angono, Rizal where a jeepney stopped in front of him to unload one lady passenger.

And so Eric boarded on that trip and took the seat vacated by the lady passenger. Upon seating, he noticed something bulky underneath, and surprised to see a wallet with a white bulky enveloped inside. He was even more astonished to see what’s inside – a huge amount of peso bills which he assumed to be more or less a hundred thousand pesos – cash!

Without any hesitation, and while the jeepney is still not gone far from the last stop, he politely ask the driver to pull-over for him to go back and look for the lady passenger who could be the owner of that envelope. All the passengers on that jeepney were so amazed to see and watched as Eric ran back to look for the lady, and found her shaking and crying on the last stop.

With his both hands holding the envelope, Eric gently asked the lady if she owns the wallet with that envelope left at the jeepney.  And with a tearful eyes and shaking voice, the lady immediately hugged Eric , embraced him so tight and even gave him a motherly kiss while repeatedly saying “Maraming Salamat, Maraming Salamat po” (Thank you, thank you very much!)

And after that incredible display of honesty and incorruptibility, the lady offered some cash but Eric politely refused to accept it. She introduced herself as Ms. Cecille from Cainta, Rizal.  She had that money to be delivered as part of payment for a lot her family bought recently in Angono. Overwhelmed with Eric’s sincerity and trustworthiness, Ms. Cecille eagerly invited Eric to have a dinner sometime with her family and as thanskgiving as well.

With so much gratitude and inspiration, Eric posted this extra-ordinary experience on his Facebook. “Being a God-fearing Christian and a devotee, I just did what I feel is the moral thing to do that time.” Eric said. “Temptation to these kind of situations that rarely happened to anybody can be avoided if God is always in the center of our heart” he added upon the interview with ADN (Angono Dream News Online).

Eric is a freelance visual artist from Brgy. San Roque, Angono, Rizal. He is a cartoonist, an excellent freehand artist and have done dozens of portraits and human figures. During his spare time, he works in a small gym in Angono as an instructor, and accepts home massage services as an additional income to support his family.

Nakatakdang bisitahin ngayong araw ng mga kinatawan mula sa World Bank at LLDA (Laguna Lake Dev’t. Authority) ang  “Angono Wetlands and Flood Control Project” na nakatakdang itayo sa mataas na lugar sa loob ng San Martin Subd., Brgy. San Isidro, Angono, Rizal.

Ito ay matatagpuan malapit sa ARPSA (Angono Regional Pilot School for the Arts).  Inaasahang mababawasan, kung hindi man maibsan, ang mga pagbaha sa kapatagan ng Angono tuwing panahon ng tag-ulan, kung saan higit na naapektuhan ang mga subdivision sa ibaba, ang mga residente sa kapatagan at iba pang maliliit na lugar sa kabayanan ng Angono.  Magiging magandang pasyalan din ito kung saan matatanaw o ‘overlooking’ ang kagandahan ng Laguna Lake.

Ang halaga ng proyekto at aabot ng halos 5 milyon at inaasahang matatapos sa loob ng 120 calendar days.  Katuwang ng Lokal ng Pamahalaan ang LISCOP (Laguna de Bay Institutional Strengthening and Community Participation), at ang World Bank sa pagpapagawa ng naturang proyekto.

News reader and officer of the foundation Mel Tiangco represented the network while Mayor Gerry Calderon, Capt. Joey Calderon of Barangay San Isidro and municipal officials welcome Ms. Tiangco.

The center, which was blessed by Angono parish priest Fr. Roy Crucero, will likewise serve as temporary shelter for those who will be displaced by floods and typhoon.

Angono Mayor Gerry Calderon is opposed to the planned expansion of quarrying operations in his town that would entail the felling of 6,500 trees.

Calderon said he is against the further extraction of minerals in the town, and that the town has requested the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) for help in reassessing the area where Lafarge Republic, Inc. (LRI) plans to cut about 6,500 trees.

In a phone interview, the mayor told The Manila Times he wrote DENR Secretary Ramon Paje June 29 last year seeking clarification on the plan and the area for quarrying.

“My office has not received any communication,” he said.

He said he made it clear to Paje that he will not allow the extraction of minerals in the 19.99-hectare area, which covers Barangays San Isidro and San Roque.

Calderon said the previous municipal administration approved the feasibility study of Batong Angono Aggregates Corporation (BAAC), a concessionaire of LRI, on the quarrying operations.

When Calderon learned about the proposal last week, he inspected the areas to be cleared of trees.

He said local officials would like to hear the transition plan of LRI and BAAC when their planned tree-cutting and mining activities end in 2019 if they would be given a permit.

“They have a proposal to promote eco-tourism in the area, which is good for them and for us as well. But right now, everything is up in the air,” he said.

The mayor’s chief of staff, Allan Maniaol, told The Times the DENR allowed Concrete Aggregates, BAAC’s former name, to mine in an area covering 198 hectares.
“If the area is that big, why expand?” Calderon said.

Angono residents fear that the cutting of thousands of trees could trigger an environmental disaster because it could worsen floods and cause landslides.

Lafarge has yet to come out with a statement on the issue.
