What's Going in Taitung City and County Townships/Municipalities 台東市,鄉,鎮最近動向 9

For those less familiar with Taiwan, the "big" cities are divided into districts (區), and the counties are divided into cities (市), townships (鄉), and municipalities (鎮).  給對台灣比較不熟悉的讀者: 大城市 (高雄, 台南, 台中, 新竹, 桃園, 基隆, 嘉義, 台北, 跟新北市) 以下劃分為"區", 縣 (城市外的地方)則由市, 鄉, 鎮組成.


1. Da Ren Township 達仁鄉公所

Residents of Da Ren are upset over a traffic revision in that area. 交通部在南迴公路附近的道路未設置禁止左轉號誌.

The tunnel between Da Ren and Tsao Pu in Pingtung County had two names.  Why?  Because the villages on either side of the tunnel couldn't agree on a name! The two former names have since been combined into the "Tsao Pu Sun Yung Tunnel." 連接達仁屏東草埔村的隧道之前有兩個名稱.  為什麼?  因為隧道兩邊的鄉村不同意彼此的名稱! 最後決議採用"草埔森永隧道", 皆大歡喜.


2. Da Wu Township 大武鄉公所

Da Wu has a new health center, which some people think is "as beautiful as a hotel."  Not that there are a lot of other attractive buildings in Da Wu to compare it to... 大武有了新的衛生所.  有的人的看法是 "美的像飯店."

There was recently a car accident on Highway 9.  Five people survived with light injuries. 最近太麻里發生了一場車禍, 5人受輕傷.

A legal battle over land used for the old Tai Ma Li Farmer's Association began two years ago.  It's likely the Farmer's Association will have to pay the landowner A LOT of money. 兩年前太麻里農會與土地所有權人進行訴訟.  農會大概會被罰大錢.



5. Orchid Island Township 蘭嶼鄉公所

A Taipei City Councilman, fulfilling a promise made before the election, jumped into the ocean off Orchid Island to celebrate Tsai Ying-wen's reelection. 台北市議員去年喊出, 如果蔡英文總統連任, 他將跳海慶祝.  他最近在蘭嶼做了.

*Another report states that this accident occurred in Cheng Gong, not Dong He.  One of the articles also states that it occurred near the 120K marker, and that's in Dong He.

**Kind of odd when you think about it.  All those people in that area, and no lower-priced restaurants in/on Gao Tai.  The closest convenience store isn't convenient from there at all.

Note: What's that you say about an elephant in the room?  Oh, coronavirus!  I omitted all the articles on stuff closing, things being delayed, or public services being lengthened in various townships/municipalities.  At this point I think we can all take that as a given.
