City must keep up its neighborhoods

first_imgWhat has happened to Crane Street? When I drive to my friend’s house on Crane Street, I see empty buildings, rundown homes and garbage littering yards and fouling the street.The news reports from that neighbored are of rampant crime, including shootings and drug related arrests. People hang out at all hours of the day and night in front of stores. Groups of people walk in the street instead of using the sidewalk and even use the street as an area in which to congregate while blocking traffic flow.Crane Street used to have the best bakeries. The White Eagle’s cream pies and Mont Pleasant Bakery’s bread and pastries had people lining up for the best, fresh baked goods.Schenectady, take pride in all of your neighborhoods. Bring back the good things that Mont Pleasant, Bellevue, Goose Hill and the others used to be noted for. There’s nothing like the smell of fresh baking bread in the air — so good — and the sight of neatly kept lawns with flowers and trees. So beautiful.Gina SauterScotia More from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusSchenectady teens accused of Scotia auto theft, chase; Ended in Clifton Park crash, Saratoga Sheriff…EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motorists Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more

Jokowi calls for ‘social distancing’ to stem virus spread

President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has called on all Indonesians to practice what epidemiologists call social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the country.“Under the current conditions, it’s time for us to work from home, study from home and worship at home,” Jokowi said at a press conference at Bogor Palace in West Java on Sunday. “It’s time for us to work together, to help each other, to unite and cooperate. We want this to be a community movement, so that the COVID-19 problem can be addressed to the fullest.”As of Sunday afternoon, Indonesia has announced 117 confirmed COVID-19 cases, five of which have ended deadly. Regional heads in a number of areas – including Jakarta, Banten and West Java – have decided to temporarily close schools and public areas in an effort to contain the coronavirus. Jokowi said he would leave the decision whether or not to declare a state of emergency up to the respective regional head.“As a large country and an archipelago, the spread of COVID-19 varies from region to region,” he said.” Therefore, I ask all governors, regents and mayors to continue to monitor their respective regions and consult with medical experts and the National Disaster Mitigation Agency [BNPB] to determine the emergency level in their regions.”He added that the government guaranteed it had enough stocks of staple goods to meet everyone’s needs.“We have also prepared economic incentives, as has been announced by the Coordinating Economic Minister, so that the business world can carry on as usual,” he said.Jokowi said that while Transportation Minister Budi Karya had tested positive for the virus, the rest of the Cabinet would continue to work hard to address the effects of the pandemic.“I ask all the people of Indonesia to stay calm, not to panic, to stay productive and to be more alert, so that we can slow down and stop the spread of COVID-19,” he said.

Despite COVID-19 pandemic, Indonesia continues to prepare to relocate capital

first_imgThe process of relocating Indonesia’s capital city to East Kalimantan is to go on as planned despite the COVID-19 pandemic in the archipelago, the Office of the Coordinating Maritime Affairs and Investment Minister has said.Jodi Mahardi, a special staff member with the office, said the preparations to move the country’s capital from Jakarta were still on track so far.“The office, alongside the State-Owned Enterprises Ministry and the Finance Ministry, has continued to engage in intense communications with potential investors and partners,” Jodi said in a virtual press briefing as quoted by Antara on Wednesday. President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo’s administration plans to relocate the country’s administrative hub by 2024.This year, the government would focus on preparing a master plan, technical details and land procurement for the new capital.The National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) previously said that what the agency’s capital relocation secretary, Hayu Prasasti, calls a “soft groundbreaking” might take place in July this year and mark the start of building road access to the site of the new city.The plan, however, comes as the central government struggles to contain the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus in the archipelago, particularly as cases of infections continue to increase in many of the country’s provinces.As of Wednesday, the number of people infected by the coronavirus in the country has reached 790, with 58 fatal cases.Earlier in February, Bappenas head Suharso Monoarfa explained the timeline for relocating the capital, saying the groundbreaking would commence in 2021, followed by the construction of residential buildings and health facilities in 2022 and telecommunication networks and ports and airports in 2023. The state apparatuses are scheduled to move to the new capital in 2023. (aly)Topics : Jodi added that the ministry was still reviewing a number of options for the development of the new capital, which is to occupy a 256,000-hectare area in East Kalimantan’s North Penajam Paser and Kutai Kartanegara regencies.Coordinating Maritime Affairs and Investment Minister Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan said last month there were about 30 potential investors, both local and foreign, lining up to help develop the new capital.“Many foreign investors of various fields from the United States, Japan, the United Arab Emirates and Singapore want to assist in the construction,” Luhut said.Read also: Explainer: Will Indonesia be Southeast Asia’s Italy?
