Comment on Funding announcements flow for ‘Stronger Futures’ in Aboriginal communities by Janet Brown.

We have at this time excess of 1500 people from the communities in Alice. Why? Because they want to live in Alice. We are in crisis. We need accommodation urgently in Alice. So, Bob, what are you saying? That you don’t want them in Alice Springs – you support back to country? That’s right, you know what they want. Or is it they are not wanted in your back yard? The same racist comments that support segregation at all levels. So, yes, Bob, I want housing and other support in Alice. In Alice springs everyone is welcome. What I don’t want is segregated areas like town camps. No more race based policies. No more race based government spending. NO MORE SEGREGATION. All of what you spoke of is already in communities – basic needs are addressed. What is not addressed is people leaving communities to make Alice home.

Funding announcements flow for ‘Stronger Futures’ in Aboriginal communities
How much tax payers monies going to be wasted again to fix nothing. The Feds can give land to the NT government and pay for head works. In all major towns outside of Darwin. Not city support and not race based. Spend the cash closing town camps and bring them into suburbia. The Feds need to put an end to their segregation policies and procedures. Stop the rot. Take a stand – the money they are burning is tax payer money. Our voice needs to be heard. And when building in Alice only Alice trades. All builders get equal share of work load. We don’t need imports like Carey. Money to support each town. Wow, what a Territory. What a great place to be and live. But that will be a pipedream if our new council and Territory members in Alice don’t fight for it. Don’t be scared to ask for your share. It is your right. Not individually. But as a community. You don’t ask you don’t get.

Surprising conservative on council: Jacinta Price
The issue of the feminist voice is that it groups together to attack any woman who dares to stand alone and not join their pack of the pathetic victimhood clan. Those who are prepared to throw men under the bus to obtain superiority. At the same time they take the same approach to any woman who defies their rules. Stand strong Jacinta. Victim cards cannot be found in your purse.


Ballooning electricity costs: NT could make a difference
The elitist are always so far from empathy it is amazing that they can bring themselves to notice the people suffering or find $1 for the organisations helping the poor. Hey True But?
Your remarks are display a complete lack of empathy for anyone struggling with power prices. Your comments also display a “I am okay, not worried about anyone else” tone.
I do worry about elderly paying so much on power that they cannot afford eat.
I do worry about the families who are paying so much for power that food is now a luxury more than a necessity for survival.
Our governments have forced this on the people of Australia by their inability to risk manage solar implementations. What a sad world we live in when the life of ours is so easily dismissed for the belief in a ideology based on propaganda. And greed.


Ballooning electricity costs: NT could make a difference
Rising electricity costs are being ignored by government. Why? Let’s go back.
Before solar. In a clear way let’s say it costs $10m a year to run the power station. Then comes solar. More and more business and households get solar. Then over a few years those with solar are paying either nothing or getting a payment from PAWA.
The facts are the power station still requires $10m to operate.
So for example those with solar have removed $7m from payments to the power company.
That requires those without solar to pay the $10m.
Simple maths based on logic and fact.
Governments are hiding their heads in the sand as they know what they have done.
Blaming the power companies and accusing them of price gauging is a lie.
This is purely the lack of risk management of renewable energy establishment.
I raised my concerns when solar first was starting up only to be called an idiot by the then CEO of PAWA.
The NT Government should be paying the difference for their stuff up. So should every government and mostly the Feds.
There is no mystery about this. It is not a conspiracy. It is purely a lack of risk management failure by government.


No quorum to debate Cr Melky’s youth curfew motion
We require (and have done so for many years) a youth hub that allows for kids to relax and interact that provides food safety and a bed.
When are the powers to be, going to acknowledge this one ingredient always missing from the spending?
Kids need a safe place to sleep. A safe place to relax and feel normal. The very basic needs base as preached in the community services field known as the maslow’s hierarchy of needs.
Boot camps are not the answer. Detention centres are not the answer. And yet no one has asked the right question.
How do we implement positive changes for these kids?
We do that by providing a bed, shelter and food. The basic to human needs. A place that offers opportunities and support.
Education and access to tutoring. Dealing with the behaviour issues is another thing altogether. When this basic need is addressed those with real behaviour issues will be visual and that requires some assistance from those with the skills.


Vinnies in Alice barely surviving
I managed the Red Cross shop in reg Harris lane.
The area manager would turn up, bully the volunteers and attempt to bully me. Which did not go well for her.
She demanded I make sure the volunteers signed contracts for work times. I told her that the volunteers would do what the could. They loved working for the Red Cross.
I put a complaint in to head office re the area manager and she went on stress leave after all the other stores were contacted and all relayed the same story of bullying and threats by this persons.
This same person was abused by customers for her rudeness to them.
After I quit the new manager was promised full time and after 12 months still no permanent position.
Was forced to work 40 hours plus and paid for 30 hours part time rate.
It appears that these not for profit organisations are fronts for people who have achieved middle management positions who have no compassion or empathy.
And have no issue pushing bullying.
