Comment on The facts the Amnesty fact finder didn’t find by Hal Duell.

@Hey Beau
I was born and raised in the US and left it for good the day after Nixon was elected for his second term. That was in 1972. Remember uni in the Viet Nam years? The protests and the pot? And then along came Iraq – you guys don’t learn, do you?
I’ve lived in Alice for over thirty years now, spent years bush and have visited and worked on remote communities many times down the years. Can’t say I ever felt like I was in jail out there, but then I wasn’t trying to.
I’ve also lived on the north coast of NSW. In fact at one time I owned a property in Kyogle Shire. Did your road trip take you over there as well. Lovely place, like the rest of this fine free country.
Now I live in The Gap in Alice where the streets come alive at night – sometimes with music and sometimes with screaming.
So I repeat: Hope you enjoyed your road trip and glad Qantas wasn’t on strike the day you were booked to return home.

The facts the Amnesty fact finder didn’t find
Don’t you just love Beau Ives? After living in Australia for not quite four years, living in Alice Springs for one year and having visited a community or two, suddenly he knows all about us.
I hope you enjoyed your road trip, Beau.
Glad Qantas wasn’t on strike when it came time to catch your plane home.
Spare me.

This represents a truly fantastic opportunity for Alice Springs. I am confident everyone from the airport staff to Town Council to the business community will get fully behind this chance to grow Alice.


Mayor comments on code of conduct, Anzac Oval
I’m with Mayor Ryan on this code of conduct thing. If someone has something to say, let them say it.
I’m not with Mayor Ryan on the site of the proposed art gallery (and cultural centre?). I don’t think the base of Anzac Hill is the best location.

Gallery: Gunner sticks with ANZAC Oval
“Every consultation we have done shows the CBD location is the preferred location, and that’s the only location that offers a sense of place and has the space to be able to do it.”
That comment is simply not true.

This is beginning to feel like stalking. What part of “no” doesn’t this man understand?
