Comment on Is NT turning back the clock with its plans for compulsory rehab? by Janet Brown.

So are you telling us grog is available in the communities? Of course I focus on Alice in relation to grog availability communities are dry. Like I said clutching at straws. And in any town in Australia if there is no employment people move to where employment is available. And in Alice we have lots of employment opportunities. And lots of those on welfare from communities come not to find work but to remain on welfare. Using employment is another of your straws.

Hal like children born with crack, heroin and other drugs due to the lack of care from addict mothers. I feel sad that in our society that this happens. But the need is to assist in helping these mothers and families but when you use this very damaging inflicted harm from the mothers to promote restrictions on the rest of the public I find that not only insulting but disrespectful to the community. Decent people care about the injustice in life and do not support such behaviour so why the desire to make changes in our lives when these people in question do not change their behaviours. Two wrongs do not make a right. And if a family member had issues of addiction it would be for family to deal with it. Trouble with most of those on welfare lifestyles is a constant desire to accept no responsibly for their actions, inbred by organisations wanting to blame everyone else but those with the problems.

Some of the comments are really clutching at straws. Road deaths, babies born with brain damage through cheap grog. The list of excuses grow for prohibition. I will continue to say it is up to individual responsibility not for organisations chasing the large dollar fundings to do nothing but inform and grow the problem to ensure greater funding for their groups. Individuals make their choices for themselves. And the problems will grow constantly until realisation sets in for those individuals that there are no more excuses and they have to make a choice. The money for nothing groups are not there anymore to keep them drunk and dependent. Oh my, independence for individuals, now that is something to fight for. You guys want someone or something to control and dominate. Buy a pet. People are not pets.

It is well past time to push the truth. And we all know what that is NO Job Nothing to do but drink smoke dope drop pills. The life style perpetuated by our generous welfare system. And I do not in any way refer to those who are not part of the problem addicts. Everyone is different but this entire time wasting money wasting because of addicts is seeing a total neglect of those in real need. Our kids without beds and food. Our sporting facilities our youth centre seniors and more. Lets stop the focus on those with addictions and spend all that money assisting in providing a great opportunities to everyone else. If it is true and forced rehab will not work spend the money where it will be best spent in preventing the next generation from the same faith. If all that money had have been spent in a new youth centre providing for kids. Put monies to sporting clubs to reduce the cost to participate in sport. Wow planning for a future that involves participate not neglect. So you all focus on this issue and in ten years the problems will be greater. Change lanes now. A future for our town or more of the same. This stupidity has to end

Gallery: Gunner sticks with ANZAC Oval
YD. The ground the old high school sits on is not your oval. The gallery is being built on that land. There is no building on the oval.
I am so concerned for the logic of the protesting few. The oval is not mine or yours.
It is council public property. For everyone.
The school is going and a new building being built. The gallery. Please think about your protest before yell to loudly. The school grounds are not the oval.

Indigenous gallery location done and dusted, says Lambley
I have spoken also to many people and they support Anzac as the location. As stated it is going on the land of the old high school.
A meeting at council and public consultation. It is government land. They do not have to consult with anyone.
When it comes to including the oval for open area then that is a need for MOU. Basic logic. The building is going on the government land. Now let’s all settle down and deal with facts.

The millions and the misery
Jen, how many failed programs have you been employed with?
This is not about giving young people a voice this is about giving young people a safe space.
With people who care about their safety. Not a government program that employees robots who perform for the wages.
This project is about people supporting kids and ensuring their safety. Relax. Revive and not be throw on the street after the place closes.
Empathy and real compassion will be the base of volunteers.
Not a government position in a high needs spot. People who care. That is why we will succeed.

The millions and the misery
The perfect location.

Memo Club for 24/7 youth centre?
I really am not surprised by the responses by people who have been part of these failed programs.
And still are part of them. You all yell loudly the amount of agencies who are doing something.
Yet our you problems continue. These places are all individual pieces of the puzzle. Never to join up and offer real security and safety. Peace meal titbits.
What we are dissucissing is a community centre that is open and operating 24/7. Were kids have a place. The current supports while well meaning miss the big picture. Kids want security and safety. Couch surfing is not what I would call safety.
This will be a place to call into to relax. Get a feed and relax. Similar to a home environment one that will give opportunities to kids to make life choices on their voice.
I watched for the first time last night blind side. What a story. A story to reinforce the need for a place and people to care for our kids.
Those people who want to pat themselves on the back and protect themselves is the real shame of failing our kids.
We are taking a stand to provide safety and security to these kids. And you want to knock us for standing up for these kids. Really. I really do not care about your failures. I care about the kids.
