Thanks for that clarification. No worries.
And for the record, is the Alice Springs News Online simply the best local opinion forum, or what!

Convincing win for Country Liberals: ALP likely to lose its only seat in The Centre

For the record, I reckon Henderson’s government got what it deserved.
Now it’s Mill’s turn, and I am, for now, completely behind him and his new team. I am not saying they should walk in the shoes of their predecessors. In fact I hope they don’t. But I am hoping they do all they can to take all of us with them.
I agree with you that the hard work is far from over. On my way home this evening I noticed a car had been set alight in the Gap Hotel’s parking lot. I will not be taking my fence down.
And please don’t call me a “Laborite”. You have no idea of how I voted.

Hopefully Terry Mills will prove to be smarter than thinking that in our democratic system the 51% is allowed to shoot the 49%. He needs all of us.
And so do I, and so do you.
It’s a wonderfully diverse place, Alice. Let’s keep it that way.

One of the most interesting side-shows to watch in the coming electoral cycle is how Terry Mills and the CLP handle Alison Anderson and Bess Price.
But whatever decisions are now taken, it will take all of us working together to keep Alice Springs on its refreshingly corrected path. People are going out at night. They’re smiling on the streets again. It is so welcome!
Hopefully our diverse elected representatives will now get over their use of divisive terms like loopy-left and righteous-right. For the vast majority of us who inhabit the middle ground, neither is helpful. Both are juvenile. Time to raise our vocab and our game.
It is a new chance. Let’s make the most of it.

Confusion over gallery leadership: government’s fault
“I have no idea what the Member for Araluen is talking about …”
And that comment is true.


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.


No sign of council playing ball on Anzac Oval
This is beginning to feel like stalking. What part of “no” doesn’t this man understand?


Wakefield insists on Anzac Oval, ignores majority
Once again it seems to be a case of our way or the highway.
When this location debate first came up, I was of the opinion that the Desert Park was the right choice. But then the traditional owners spoke up at the council meeting debating to MOU or not to MOU, and the TOs seemed to be united in wanting any gallery to be south of The Gap.
So what’s the problem?
If revitalising the CBD is truly the aim, build flats there, and build a skate park at the river end of Parsons Street, and make the area vibrant again.

Any update from Alex Nelson on the heritage application for the Anzac site?
