KALIBO, Aklan – The SangguniangPanlalawigan (SP) here penned a Special Ordinance which allowed public marketvendors to occupy half of the street’s lane. He added the other half should stillbe used by motorists and pedestrians to minimize traffic congestion in the areaespecially during the Holiday season. In the Ordinance, the SP has allowedvendors – who were affected by the fire at the Kalibo Public Market last month– to momentarily use Toting Reyes Street here across the public market to selltheir goods. The same Ordinance also mandates thelocal government here to monitor the traffic situation in the said street andto implement measures to ensure safety, health and sanitation in the occupiedstretch. Gov. Joeben Miraflores, however, saidthe Ordinance specifically allowed affected vendors to only occupy half of thestreet’s lane starting from Roxas Avenue Extension to F. Quimpo StreetExtension which spreads to 220 meters. The use of the street to house themakeshift stalls will last for three months – the deadline given by theprovincial government for the local government here to find a relocation sitefor the affected vendors. The SP declared that junctions alongthe area of the said street should not be used by vendors or should not bebarricaded by them to avoid traffic congestion. An estimated 35 million worth ofproperties went up in smoke after fire gutted around 276 stalls at the marketon Sept. 15, which made the way for the declaration of the State of Calamityhere. Miraflores is set to releaseadditional fund support to the affected vendors following the approval of theSP.(Radyo Todo/PN)
Holland coach Louis van Gaal has reaffirmed his interest in working in the Premier League next season – but will not restrict his options to Tottenham. Van Gaal, in Brazil for a FIFA workshop for World Cup managers, told the Daily Mail: “I am mostly interested in England because I have been a coach in Spain, Germany, in the Netherlands so I think England is the next step in my career. “It could be another club [other than Spurs], it depends on the vacancies because Spurs were already [in touch] with me. “I prefer to be focused on this World Cup and now there’s another coach [Sherwood] so as coach, you cannot say ‘I go to that club or that club’, it depends on circumstances.” Van Gaal is expecting big things from Manchester United striker Robin van Persie this summer and feels international duty suits him better than his role at Old Trafford. “I think he should be great in the tournament because he loves to play in the Dutch squad,” he said. “The football from Man United now is, for him, maybe difficult but then he wishes to show his technique. Technique [levels] in the Dutch team [are] higher.” The 62-year-old was heavily linked with the White Hart Lane post, which eventually went to Tim Sherwood, after the departure of Andre Villas-Boas earlier this season. The former Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach is out of contract with the Oranje after this summer’s World Cup and is keen to add a Premier League job to his impressive CV. Press Association
