Shippers mull Mindanao link

By BEN BALCE - Correspondent Updated November 27, 2009 12:00 AM
MISAMIS ORIENTAL - Some 200 stakeholders who gathered Thursday at PhivIdec Industrial Estate, the province economic zone, pushed for the establishment of the North to South Mindanao link to enable greater mobility of goods and people in this southern Philippines island of Mindanao.

Participants to the two-day conference include international players like foreign shipping industries also attended the two-day confab with delegations from the shippers, shipping lines, cargo forwarders, service providers, and representatives from private sector and government agencies.

“The main focus of this conference is the logistics infrastructure. Linkages of Northern to Southern Mindanao, a main corridor like a Davao-Cagayan expressway,” Rep. Rufus Rodriguez , (2nd District, Cagayan de Oro City), said.

Rodriguez who welcomed hundred participants said several infrastructures were expected to be built in key places in Mindanao to fast track its economic development.

Rodriguez said, like the ongoing infra-projects he started in Cagayan de Oro early this year it would be of big help if the plan fully materialized.

“The ongoing projects like the Laguindingan Airport, the planning of the Mindanao Railway System which will connect the cities of Iligan and Cagayan de Oro is the start idea of a logistics corridor,” said Rodriguez.

In Cagayan de Oro, he said the approval of an overpass to be built in Barangay Puerto worth P230- million will help the land cargoes from Bukidnon to Cagayan de Oro.

“That overpass will help cargoes from Bukidnon as it will be connecting to the new planned P1.4 billion coastal super highway from Puerto to Macabalan port,” said Rodriguez.

The Mindanao Federation of Shippers’ Association (MINFESA) Inc. who spearheaded the conference made some proposal as it will presented during the said conference with the theme: “Southern-Northern Mindanao Logistics Corridor: Key to Fast Track its Economic Development.”

MINFESA President Vic Lagdamen said the “expressway” would not necessarily be the one passing through the current national highway, as long as it will “facilitate for a faster movement of goods and people.”

He also said while the Northern-Mindanao link is being pushed as a main corridor, the proposed integrated logistics and transportation plan should also include the Zamboanga, Caraga and other regions in Mindanao.

Mindanao is yet to have an integrated logistics and transportation plan, he said.

He said the plan should figure significantly with the recent infrastructure boost in Mindanao, wherein major infrastructure were recently built like the Mindanao Container Terminal, along with the expansion of seaports and airports, and improvement of national roads.

Business Growth Development program manager Renne P. Subido said that the integrated logistic highway or corridor that would connect two big economic centers in the region the Northern and Southern part of Mindanao is planned by Minfesa in cooperation with some groups like Growth with Equity in Mindanao (GEM).

“The GEM will give some technical assistance and part of the conference’ resolution and one of the co-funding groups,” said Subido.

Congressman Rufus Rodriguez is seeking re-election in his district of CDO, Cagayan de Oro, Philippines and a situation has been brought to our attention that we want to inform him of.

Rufus Rodriguez owns a rental property in CDO that he rents out to a American expatriot of questionable agendas, records and past. I highly doubt Mr. Rodriguez knows of the kind of people his house is harboring so have decided to inform both him and the internet community in hopes of enlightening the situation during this campaigning period.

The American national currently residing in the house is one Gordon Elletson who goes by Gordy and posts on many internet forums using the name TexKano. Gordon Elletson is of a deffective mental state and is a admitted child abuser and basher of the Filipino populace. Please see link below of how Gordy Elletson , using his TexKano nic, admitted to hitting Xavier Madlangbayan with a cane and then proceeding to call the boys grandfather, Dr. Severino Madlangbayan,(who is seeking a city council seat in Iligan City) a banana eating monkey. Is this kind of elitest American truly the sort of expatriot that a elected Congressman wants to be connected to? Well Gordon Elletson seems to think the congressman loves him and will washover any mess he gets himself into. I find it hard to believe a elected congressman will forsake his constituents , who elected him, in a effort to protect a abusive foreign national.

The second expatriot, now deceased, is one Randall Chester Goings who goes by Bubba and posted on net under nic Bubbabobbaker. This fellow had a lengthy criminal record which included multiple drug charges. Randall Goings was brought to the Philippines by Gordon Elletson where he lived , together with Gordy, in the proprty owned by Congressman Rufus Rodriguez of CDO, Cagayan de Oro. This property is located on 69 bong bongon street CDO and even before Randall Goings moved to such property he was allready posting perverted things all over the internet. One example of his perversions took place on a internet dating site where he searched for a 4' tall bi-sexual and stated in his ad "the smaller you are the more I will love you". Evan smaller than 4'? Yikes, Was he looking for a dwarf or a underaged girl?

Anyway, I hope this message reaches Congressman Rodriguez and he can see below link for proofs regarding the accutations of the kind of expatriot he is harboring and who states the Congressman is protecting him. I feel the congressman has the right to know the facts in below link.

A special page has been made on the SEXPAT BLOG as a tribute to Bradley Hughes who resides in Cagayan De Oro Philippines.

Bradley Hughes has gone far and beyond the call of duty in exposing Gordon Elletson, Michael Mountstephen ( Spooks whorehouse owner )and etc.

Bradley Hughes even came up with the brilliant idea of linking Congressman Rufus Rodriguez , of 2cd District CDO , to the SEXPATS that his home is harboring.


Bradley Hughes has been a extreme help to the advocacy and for his cooperation and good deeds the Sexpat blog owner has decided to dedicate a entire page to the bravery which defines Bradley Hughes .

Hello Readers,

I have been reading on the Internet about this perverted foreign national Gordon Elletson and find it greatly disturbing. One very disturbing post was on Topix as it had the victims , Xavier Madlangbayan, own mother Margie Madlangbayan stating in no uncertain terms that this predator has caused her son a great amount of psychological distress as the victim now worries that the foreign predator , Gordon Elletson, will hit him again. I honestly hope that the victims grandfather Dr. Severino Madlangbayan will take time out of his political campaigning to bring his grandsons abuser to justice. I think he is doing a admiral thing in seeking a city council seat in Iligan City but I hope he also has not given up on bringing his grandsons abuser to justice.

Below is a cut and pasted posting written by the victims mother, Margie Madlangbayan of Iligan City Philippines:

Pasted:

“PNP here in Iligan failed to deliver the subpoenas to our door for the three consecutive times they were supposed to.
this is what the Prosecutor’s office is using to re-open the case.there is no “due process of law.”
both my parents and i were present in the hearing last nov.20.and so was xavier.gordon was absent.his lawyer was there vying and fighting,as he is paid to do,but assistant prosecutor Sandra fought with her tooth and nail.we are still waiting for the resolution to arrive.i sent a text to Fiscal Macauyag,there is no resolution yet.
the judge looked at my kid and probably saw his own grand child,just a bigger version for doy is a big boy,he was even mistaken by gordon as being 12years old,but when the incident happened,he was just 7years old,and that was last year.
he kept asking
“mommy,is Gordon going to be there?what if he hits me again?”
i told him:
“Xavier,he will pay for what he did.He will never put his hands on you again,over my dead body.”
i know i haven’t posted much updated,thus the question why i have been so quiet… but trust me people,i haven’t forgotten what that man did to my son.i’m just being silent.watching.waiting.if the case doesn’t get reopened,do not assume it is over.all this is far from over.it has just begun”

Alang Sa Kasayuran Sa Tanan,

Niabot sa akong panimoot nga kadaghanan sa mga dumodoong sa Cagayan de Oro, nagakinabuhi nga murag sila dili mga dayo. Ingon sa mga dumodoong, ang mga opesyal daw ang naggahin kanila ug tungod para magpuyo nga hapsay sa Cagayan de Oro. Akong ginalauman nga ang mga pulong nga gibuhian sa mga dayo, dili tinood, kay kung mao man, masuko gayud ako sa mga nidaog nga opisyal sa pag-atiman nila niining mga dumodoong. Tinood kaha ang ilang gipanayon? Kung dili man kini tinood, akong ginahangyo sa mga opisyal sa lugar nga pangitaon ug pahawaon kining mga tawhanan sa dakbayan sa Cagayan de Oro. Kung walay kalihokan nga mahitabo sukwahi sa mga dumodoong, kini nagpamatood lang nga ginapaburan sa mga taong naa sa posisyon ang ilang mga kalihukan.

Ang unang dumodoong nga gikan sa Amerika ginganlan ug Gordon B. Elletson. Si Gordon Elletson nag-angkon nga siya nagapang-abuso ug mga dalaga ug nag-angkon nga siya naay sakit sa paghunahuna. Dilikado kaayo kini nga tao sa mga nagapuyo sa Cagayan de Oro. Niaging tuig, si Gordon Elletson ang niatake sa isa ka batang lalaki nga ginganlan ug Xavier Madlangbayan sa outreach program sa US Embassy didto sa Pryce Plaza Hotel, cagayan de Oro. Tungod niini, gikasuhan si Gordo sa pag-abusar, apan kini wala makapungong sa iyang pag-gawas ug pag-uli, apil pa ang pagpakalat mahitungod sa iyang trabaho kadungan sa pagtawag sa lolo sa bata nga si Dr. Severino Madlangbayan ug unggoy nga gakaon ug saging. Gidimanda sa pamilya ni Madkangbayan ang dayo apan wala sila makapakita ug ebidensiya. Sa akong nahibaloan, nagapangita ang doktor ug paagi para maabrihan pag usab ang kaso. Wala pa nakuntinto si Gordon elletson, iyang gipakalat ang mga hulagway sa mga batang babae nga nakasuot lamang ug bra, uban pa ang mahitungod sa iyang pagkaligo kauban ang mga batang babae ug ginabayaran kini niya matag adlaw. Makalagot kaayo kini nga balita labi pa kay sa ginaingon ni Gordon nga gina-proteksiyonan siya ni Congressman Rufus Rodriguez gikan sa ikaduhang distrito sa Cagayan de Oro.

Ang ikaduha nga dumodoong gikan sa Bretanya nga ginganlan ug Michael Mountstephen. Iyang gihugawan ang maayong pangalan sa Cagayan de Oro. Ang dumodoong nanag-iya ug isa ka kasa nga ang pangita mao ang pagpamaligya sa mga batang babae sa Cagayan de Oro. Ang dautang dumodoong nabuhi sa iyang pag-abusar sa mga babae ug kini iyang giangkon sa mga pag-tipon tipon sa internet. Gawas sa pag-gamit sa mga batang babae para maka kuwarta, gigamit pud niya ang Department of Tourism sa Pilipinas para mabaligya ang ilang mga serbisyo sa www.spooks.com. Gisulatan namo ang direktor sa DOT 10 pimaagi sa e-mail nga nagkanayon mahitungod sa mao nga kasa nga dili rehistrado sa DOT 10 ug bisan kanus-a dili mahitabo nga marehistro kini. Apan, padayon gihapon sa pagpakalat si Michael Mountdtephen mahitungod sa iyang binuhatan. Ang nakadugang gubot pa niini ang pangsulti ni Michael nga ang mayor sa ciudad ug uban pang naa sa posisyon ang magkauban nga naga suporta kaniya sa Cagayan de Oro City.

Tinood kaha ang ginakanayon niiining mga dumodoong? Ang gahum ba nga gihatag sa katawhan para mahimutang sa maayo nga posisyon ang ubang pulitiko gigamit lang niya para suportahan ang pagpang-abuso sa mga batan-on, pagsuportan sa mga dautang tao gikan sa gawas sa nasud? Akong ginalaoman nga kini dili tinood ug mao man kini mahimong hamon sa mga naa sa lingkuranan nga mahatagan ug pagtagad. Pinaagi niini, maipakita sa katawhan nga ang mga sama anang butanga dili kinahanglan mahitabo sa ciudad. Kini isa lang ka panawagan ug hinaot nga mahatagan kini ug pagtagad sa labing madali nga panahon para atong makita ang hustisya.

Para sa dugang pang mga detalye mahitungod niining mga dumodoong, mahimo ninyong makita ang mga ebidensiya nga natigom sa http://sexpatswallofshame.blogspot.com/. Dinhi inyong masaksihan ang kadautan nga among gipangbutyag ug hinaot nga kini mahatagan ug pagtagad.

Matinud-Anon,

Steven
