Comment on Aboriginal job training scheme in the bush: Governments, bureaucrats, contractors, public money – who gains what? A case study. by Robinoz.

This is not exactly a new theme. Training providers have been providing training in communities for 50 years that I know of. Some community people are the most trained people in the country and have done the same fencing, welding, landscaping courses numerous times. It’s not just training that is at issue, it’s also the availability of jobs and the willingness to move where the jobs are. It’s no good being a rocket scientist if everyone is hiring proctologists. Similarly, it’s no good being a gardner in the desert or a welder where there is no demand for welding.

Four more years of same-same
We needed a council that will focus on council issues and not the so-called progressive issues of gender confusion, revision of history including changing Australia Day, renaming Father’s Day, unbridled immigration, destruction of coal fired power stations and the associated “flattening” of industry as described in our inexplicable signing of the UN’s Lima Accord. It seems that’s what the people elected.


Michele Castagna, 1944 – 2016
To Lyn Watson and family, our deepest sympathies. Michelle was a true example of our human spirit and will be missed, but remembered by all with whom she came in contact.


We have four times the nation’s rate of road deaths
It would be nice to see police enforcing stop signs, failing to keep right or left when turning right or left i.e., driving into the incorrect lane after the turn at intersections like the Stuart Highway and Larapinta Drive.
The idiots who signal to turn right on the approach of a roundabout and then drive straight ahead could also stand some attention.
All of these offences indicate that either drivers don’t care about road rules, don’t know them, or are just plain sloppy. Sloppiness in one part of their driving leads to other aspects of sloppiness and eventually traffic incidents.


The green, green grass of the Stuart Highway
Well done by the police. With only two major roads in and out of the Territory, hopefully they can knock off a few more drug peddlers.


Call to show respect for the flag
Flags must be maintained in good repair also. Flags that are falling apart at the seams should not be displayed.
