Hal like children born with crack, heroin and other drugs …

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

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.

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.

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

Anzac Precinct: govt declines to play ball, confusion reigns
Thank goodness for the NT Government finally standing by the project and the work will commence. This too and fro has dragged on for too long. I applaud the minister for her strong stand and commitment to Alice Springs and its future.


National Aboriginal gallery: Town Council’s action clear as mud
This entire talk fest is due to lack of understanding. The oval is not going to be built on. It is going to be enhanced as a public space for events and activities.
The gallery will go on the school site [which is] NT Government land.
The community needs to step up against this protest that continues to promote lies and misinformation to support their negativity, an attack by a few against the best interest of the town.
If this project was to encroach on the oval I would find it necessary to get more info and I may be a no voter.
The community’s voice should be heard by council elected members. Why are they being lead away from facts by negative protests based on deliberate misinformation to support their abuse of community interest?


Four councillors walk out of tonight’s Town Council meeting
A walk out for 10 minutes. That is what a parent demands for a child behaviouing petulantly.
Our elected members have shown their childish side with this behaviour.
Petulant behaviour left only adults in the chamber.
How can we the residents really see any maturity in our current council?


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.
