Comment on Feeding the chooks: slim pickings from a rushed doorstop with Terry Mills, his slip of the tongue and who heads the new advisory body? by Bob Taylor.

Don’t worry Erwin he’s nutting out the detail, putting flesh on the bones of his policies and doesn’t want any gaffs too early in his term. Hang in there Alice Springs News and keep asking those searching questions, so we have that check on government that is so needed, even in a democracy like ours. I agree a personal conversation is essential to probe any government minister, especially a Darwin based Chief Minister. A “chook” with your experience and local knowledge is ideally placed to ask the tough questions and sort the wheat from the chaff in the slim pickings offered.

Too hot? Try laying bricks.
Good on you boys, a tough way to earn a dollar, but someone has got to do it. Hope they have plenty of sunscreen on to protect themselves from the sun’s direct rays and the indirect rays off the blocks. It took me a while, but as a lot of people did, I laid all the blocks on our family home in the late 1970’s, in my spare time after working five and half days a week for Barlclay Bros and then Sitzler Bros.

Recommendations in for National Indigenous Art Gallery site
If they / we are looking for a MONA effect and an outcome that the whole world will want to come and see, the following may be required as a minimum:
A David Walsh type person with a vision, passion and skills necessary to drive this major project. Retain ANZAC Oval and the rugby facilities, so there is a green buffer between the proposed National Indigenous Art Gallery and the CBD.
Purchase the RSL property and together with the high school site, build something grand with a sweeping northeasterly aspect into, around and backing onto ANZAC Hill appropriate to any needs of the traditional owners of the hill.
Place the main entrance and vehicle access on Schwarz Crescent with an improved foot / cycle pathway system linking into the CBD on either side of ANZAC Oval. Just another comment to keep the ideas flowing.
