COVID-19: Surabaya and its satellites to start PSBB with curfew

first_imgPrior to the implementation of the PSBB, more than 80 checkpoints to monitor people’s movements have been established in the three regions – 13 in Surabaya, 24 in Sidoarjo and 45 in Gresik. Luki said checkpoints were not set up to stop people from going to work. “We will not make the people’s economic activities stop running. Shops, hypermarkets and traditional markets will stay open. We just want people to adhere to physical distancing rules,” he said. He said that a 4,300-strong joint team of police, military and public order agency (Satpol PP) personnel would be deployed to ensure people’s adherence to the PSBB order.  The COVID-19 task forces in Surabaya, East Java and its satellite regencies Sidoarjo and Gresik are set to impose a curfew during the large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) as part of efforts to stem the spread of COVID-19 in the three regions, which will be effective for 14 days from Tuesday until May 11.East Java police chief Insp. Gen. Luki Hermawan said the curfew and other restrictions would be enforced with several exceptions to make sure the PSBB did not hamper people’s economic activities. “Economic activities are not prohibited. There are at least two traditional markets in Surabaya that open at night, for instance. We will let them open [despite the curfew],” Luki told reporters on Tuesday morning.  “But we will give more verbal reminders to violators especially in the first three days of PSBB implementation,” he said. Similar to the restrictions imposed in Jakarta, the three regions are limiting vehicles to use only 50 percent of their seats. Motorcycles are not allowed to take passengers. Surabaya is the hardest-hit region in East Java with 372 confirmed cases and 51 fatalities as of Monday. The inclusion of Sidoarjo and Gresik in the implementation of the PSBB is partly due to Surabaya’s interconnection with the two satellite regions. Sidoarjo is the second-hardest-hit region with 81 confirmed cases and 11 fatalities, while Gresik has 22 confirmed cases and four fatalities. According to the official government count, East Java has 857 cases with 90 fatalities as of Tuesday. Topics :last_img read more

Texas ‘pole tax’ hits strip joints

first_imgStrip clubs occupy a mythic place in Texas lore as a spot where young women can work their way through college and small-town girls with dreams of Hollywood stardom get their start on the lowest rung of show biz. Texas’ topless spots range from dimly lit dives with pickup trucks lined up outside to gentlemen’s clubs that resemble plush hunting lodges and attract men in business suits. The pole tax is unlikely to have much effect on your finer establishments. The owners of Players, a small topless bar in Amarillo, are among those suing the state. They said that adding a $5 tax to the $4 cover could drive away customers and force the club out of business. “They won’t pay it,” said Chandra Brown, president of the company that owns Players. “They won’t come in. They can’t afford it.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! DALLAS – Texas, where strip clubs have given rise to Anna Nicole Smith and many other less-generously endowed performers, is about to make it more expensive to watch a little bump and grind. In what some have dubbed the “pole tax,” the Lone Star State will require its 150 or so strip clubs to collect a $5-per-customer levy, with most of the proceeds going to help rape victims. The tax goes into effect on New Year’s Day. Club owners and some of their customers say the money is going to a noble cause, but they argue that the tax infringes on their First Amendment right to freedom of expression, that it will drive some bars out of business and that it unfairly links their industry to sex crimes. “We’ll be fine. I’ve already stopped advertising, and we’re raising our cover charges. But this is going to kill some of the smaller clubs,” said Dawn Rizos, who runs The Lodge, a Hemingway-inspired place that has exotic animal heads on the walls and is packed after Dallas Cowboys games at nearby Texas Stadium. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan ClarksonThe strip clubs are suing to block the tax, which state officials estimate will raise more than $40million a year, based on liquor sales figures. If accurate, the estimate suggests at least 8million people a year go to Texas strip clubs to get a lap dance or watch women pole-dance in a G-string. Supporters of the stripper tax say they are not out to close the clubs – that would just mean less money for victims of sexual assault. “This is an industry that largely employs women, and this gives them an opportunity to raise funds for a crime that affects women,” said state Rep. Ellen Cohen, a Houston Democrat who sponsored the bill, approved by the Legislature in May. “I’ve been told the fees to get into these places can be $10, $15. I don’t think another $5 is going to prevent someone from going,” said Cohen, who is also president of a women’s center that could get funding from the new law. Most places will probably raise drink prices and cover charges, or start charging a cover if they don’t do so already. last_img read more
