You are stuck in the past Janet Brown if you believe that just a few people do not want the Stuart statue on council lawns. The fact is Janet that the twenty thousand people that you claim to know better than I were NEVER consulted in the first place.

You have posted here, regarding the John McDouall Stuart statue, that you reckon it’s OK wherever they put it … and let’s get it up.
Not good enough Hal.
In another Territory publication, a member of the Alice Springs Public Art Advisory Committee, Lisa Stefanoff, states clearly that the committee was not consulted two years ago or this year either. Will the town council get away with such an obvious lack of consultation?

Home at last?
Russell Guy, thank you for another thoughtful piece from your fine mind.
Penola, in SA, is a town which has had a flourish, in terms of public art in recent years. I have no doubt that the Alice could benefit from the ways that you, Bob Durnan and other locals suggest.
Dimboola is another peaceful little town which can provide a good example for the Alice. Dimmy has had zero racial tension for many years.
The local police station is proud to fly the Aboriginal First Australians flag.
Penola is part of the Limestone Coast, my stomping ground and is where we whitefellas destroyed the local culture through colonisation etc.
Like Tassie, the place is well worth a visit especially as the weather warms.

A star on British TV, ignored by Tourism NT
Well said Terri M of Arizona. The tourism commission knows how bad they are and that has been the subject of previous ASNO reports. They operate in the same myopic manner which came from another age and which was in denial of anything indigenous. The road ahead will not be easy and will require respect for all players and exceptional leadership.

Council wants more time to respond to water plan
This is a very grave issue for Central Australia. The situation at Mataranka involving Tina McFarlane and her family shows just how quickly things can turn. I would advise all Alice Springs people to watch this space and take note of those who know about water for example, Rod Cramer.

Water – who is advising whom on what?
This is a commendable report Erwin. David Chewings.
