The officers, members and staff of the EcoWaste Coalition express sadness for the untimely departure of Roy Alvarez, our former president (2010-2012), whom we hold in high esteem for his animated commitment to the pursuit of Zero Waste, a vision of a restored ecological order where nothing is wasted dumped or burned. As Zero Waste champion, Roy traveled across the country to propagate the values of “waste not, dump not, burn not” in countless community and school gatherings and to spread respect and love for Mother Earth.

When my brothers and I were young, we called this house the “Other House.” As a child, I walked with dad and measured its distance from our own house and concluded that it was merely 100 steps away. It was nice having my grandparents so near us; it was nice going over there to play by the beach.

Fr. Joe Dizon, 65, passed away on Nov. 4 because of complications due to diabetes. He will be missed by his fellow social activists, street parliamentarians, brother priests and, most of all, countless workers whom he helped through the Workers Assistance Center (WAC) that he founded and ran for almost 20 years.

Earlier this year, after being confined at the American Hospital in Paris following a bout with septicemia, Alberto “Doc Quasi” Romualdez wrote an open letter to all his friends, relatives and colleagues who had expressed their concern and wishes for a quick recovery.

Today’s Business Matters column should have been written by Prof. Felipe “Fil” Alfonso. Unfortunately, Fil passed away last April 5, a week before he was to turn 76. His passing marks a loss to the business community, especially because of his passionate commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR), or what many refer to as the business of doing good.

Losing a friend as many and I have in William MacGregor Esposo, or Billy, despite our having accepted a long time ago that death was an active and constant threat to him, is always an emotional trauma. We who had been among Billy’s closest friends in the last two decades are not strangers to the dramas of life, not at our ages. And we have not been strangers to danger, excitement and radical change either – these had brought us together, kept us together, and made our friendships even stronger.

Much has been said about the life and accomplishments of Fr. James Reuter. It is not easy to improve on or repeat in a better way what has already been said or written about him. Hence, let me just say a few words about him not as the public persona known to many Filipinos but simply as a Jesuit.
James Reuter SJ, the eminent Jesuit communicator, teacher and theater director, died just as the curtains were coming down on the past year.

At that time both were vice [...]
