Comment on Mayor, Chief Minister tackled over fires by Kathy Fritz.

Station people are self resourceful with their daily living, from children schooling, keeping their landing strips to aviation standards in case of medical help, re RFDS flights. Plus all the other day to day needs of being self sufficient on a cattle station hundreds of miles from towns. So fighting bush fires on their station is a major risk, to them, their home and families, their cattle, and all they have worked for. Everyone on stations are part of a large family, all working for their survival far from instant outside help. Fire is the biggest danger to everything they work for and fighting the fires alone is very much a part of station life in this beautiful country of ours.

‘Anzac Oval not for sale’: govt under pressure on gallery plans
Why is it so hard for the Government to realise that the Alice Springs people want their sacred site left as it is?
This site was the camping ground for the soldiers going up to Darwin in WW2 to protect Australia. The town’s people chose and built this this site for their local games every weekend: Rugby, cricket, the school athletic days, and many more that the people of Alice have already mentioned.
Plus the planning people have not considered many other features that happen on this sacred site.
The Totem Theatre, the Community Centre, both have been overlooked in the design of the area.
This is Alice Springs residents’ Sacred Site, so like other sacred sites please leave it well alone.

International flights to Alice would lower fares
Alice Springs should have been an international airport years ago.
It would cut down on noise and curfews in the cities, be a national airport to anywhere in Australia, and central to all states in Australia except of course Tasmania.

Government alcohol policies a giant hangover
Get the bottle shops to hire their own security, or make buyers go inside the shop to purchase their goods.

Mayor: town needs ‘full lockdown’ on bottle shops
If we are only going to put a bandaid on the known problem why this is happening, why not close all drive through bottle shops in Alice Springs?
That way persons must enter the premises to get their service.

A good spot for the art gallery?
A pity the government does not stand up and say, “enough is enough”. But no, we pussy foot around and do not want to be called racist so we do nothing, but make excuses for these arseholes.
Young or not, this behaviour was once not tolerated, now it is.
Do not blame the police, as they do a terrific job with the resources, but if the courts left these arseholes out onto the street again, with a slap, they do the same thing again, and destroy someone else’s holiday or home or car.
