Comment on Bungalow Song, the living past by Kelly.

I was one who was invited to attend on Tuesday night, what a great performance by those young people who may have been enacting what their great grandparents went through.
The kids were just great with their voices so strong. Well done to everyone involved.
It was quite funny in parts and left you crying at the end (or myself at least). Great photos above!
Hope the show was recorded and it can be available on DVD.
Great show.

Ken Hampton: From podium to pulpit
Great reading about these young men who left their families at home for a better chance of education, with the assistance of Father Smith and his wife. Keep it going.


Bill Espie: Police hero from Alice Springs
What a great story, Father Smith did a lot for the local Indigenous people here in the Alice.
My brother was one who went to Adelaide, Peter Tilmouth.
All the boys taken, all became great mates.
The Espie family was well respected here in the Alice and what an honour to have this man Bill Espie recognised, letting others know of his achievements. A story worth mentioning.


Birth registrations Bill: How many genders are there?
At the time of birth the sex should be recorded on the birth certificate by the doctor / medical staff. How can a parent determine at the time of birth that their little girl is going to be a boy when she grows up or vice versa?
Get real NT Government, people can change it legally later, along with their name, let it be. Sheesh. Heard the song by Johnny Cash “A Boy named Sue”?


Code of conduct allegations ‘vexatious, frivolous’ – councillor
Keep up the good fight Jimmy, its what is needed in the Council, honesty and commitment to the people of Alice Springs. It is stressful and unwarranted, but proving it wrong is a feather in your cap.


‘Save Anzac Oval’ motion defeated
Very disappointed at this outcome. This won’t stop the vandalising of the area. The Mayor has to be kidding if he thinks this will be sending a great message to the youths of the town.
Nothing is stopping them, Mayor, and an art gallery is not going to make any difference.
