As a frequent flyer at the bower bird tip shop …

Comment on Town council’s ‘regional’ landfill: cart before the horse? by Dan.

As a frequent flyer at the bower bird tip shop I was extremely disappointed to see the effort that Subloos made at having a tipshop, what a joke. When the council took over it looked like the good old days were returning. No such luck. It looked good for a while but has turned into a similar joke to Subloos’ effort. Surely people are still disposing of recyclable stuff. The council workers need to bring it down to the tip shop or get some training from those who worked at the original tip shop. Recycling is the way to go. Bring back the bower bird crew.

Martin Luther King III ‘disheartened’ by what he saw in Alice
Unfortunately there is very little respect for elders, full stop. Arrernte elders and leaders put a full page ad in the paper inviting people to this re conciliation event, saw no councillors or pollies there. Catherine Satour sent an apology, though.


Problem kids: The whole town must help
Hmmmmm, I think Steve’s idea could be useful depending on how it is implemented.
One thing I think is important is that the staffing should be heavily weighted with people from the demographic for whom it is intended to affect.
Poverty is one of the drivers of antisocial behaviour, more jobs for privileged whitefellas will not address that issue.


‘Government’s secret decision making’
So Mr Gunner is telling us there is no reason to vote for many of the Labor pollies as they won’t be allowed to represent us in important decision making in Parliament. What do we pay them for if they aren’t allowed to represent us?


Where has Cr Melky been all these years?
Cutting welfare may not be so successful as you imagine Mark.
Quite a few people I know have chosen to not take welfare, and hope for help from their families.
It may lead to futher problems, definitely more poverty and all the issues that that brings.


Nine-year-old girl playing in park assaulted
Bring back customary law? The drunken Aboriginal? The offenders are of Aboriginal appearance according to police.
That means they may be Aboriginal or part Aboriginal part European.
Probably the latter, perhaps descended from those nobel white pioneers who fathered many children often with women barely out of childhood, but abandoned most of their children.
Makes sense. Where else would this evil behaviour come from?
