Comment on Bleak tunnel vision in new book on Alice Springs by Philip Selman.

Excellent review, trouble is I feel like I’m going to have to buy and read the book to see how unbalanced the book really is and how balanced the review really is, a real conundrum! I think Steve Brown is right Kieran, time you wrote the Story of Alice and I genuinely mean that.

Think of all the tourist money and associated benefits Alice has lost in the eight years since this place was closed and subsequently demolished! How typical of developers and councils.

Trady vs treadlie: ute driver blows top
Was it a grey / charcoal coloured ute? In March 2009 I was deliberately cut off by such a ute along Larapinta Drive.
He kept going and I fractured various bones including both arms.
I then walked two kilometers to the hospital. He was a local and did it deliberately as he was looking at me and laughing.
I hope there is such a thing as karma for these Bogans.

Well put Russell. I nursed in Alice for some time and came to the opinion that alcohol and lack of an education destroys good people for generations.

236 houses, new or renovated cost $150,000,000! Is my maths right $635,593 per house? How do you get a piece of that action?

Murdoch’s Centralian Advocate probes Alice Springs News Online – and engages in selective quoting
Dear Erwin,
Unfortunately I don’t reside in Alice anymore but hope to return in the future. However even though I’m 3000 klms away your publication always keeps me well informed with your without fear or favour reporting and more so, your papers’ comment section where the readers can also immediately comment on the reports.
I used to buy and read the Centralian Advocate when I lived in Alice but now I can’t, why? Because they have no online presence. Maybe what the Centralian Advocate really want is your advice and inside knowledge on how to get their paper on line as successfully as yours, and this is just their awkward way of getting your attention.
Regards, Phil Selman.
