Hordes of kids rampage: 50 cars hit
Erwin, I would like to know the opinions of the parents of these young people. From what I saw and experienced in 30 years in Alice is that indigenous parents love their children dearly, BUT, seem to have no ‘control’ over them. A different paradigm from the western/European model, where there are quite a few behaviours set out for young people to follow. This being reinforced in our western/European style schools.


Gas, fracking: potential benefits to Aborigines enormous
Short term monetary gain … amount is tempting but irrelevant, versus total and permanent destruction to water supplies and negative effects to land. A no brainer really.


Alice councillor tells nation’s media about Aboriginal brutality
Jacinta, does this mean that basically Aborigonal culture, as expressed in pre white times, is now broken.
That, by default, too much power has devolved to the men.
And with alcohol in the mix, there is no way back to the balance; referring to the payback system coming from the abused woman’s family members.
I ask this respectfully, as I can see no solution.
Jacinta, is there a solution?

Car park or culture centre: new funding bid

Remember that one? We got a gross multi storey car park, without even a nod to Alice Springs history.
Yay … bring on the developers. And yes, I’m being very sarcastic.
