Comment on Four court netball stadium worth $6.25m for Ross Park by Charlie Carter.

This seems to have sprung from nowhere, and much as I like to see netball getting support and facilities, has the parking question been addressed ?
A couple of years ago we had an emergency parking situation which led to the park of Ross Park being set aside as a temporary parking area.
Perhaps the size of the facility will not change, but surely the increased usage, and high-profile matches will affect the parking.

Steve,
The white cedar is an east coast rainforest tree, and is really a pest species here. We don’tneed deciduous trees, a bit of shade is welcome even in winter (except for special circumstances).
Two of our fastest growing local natives are the River Red Gum and the Cooba (acacia salicin).
Both have their problems.
The RRG drops sap and branches.
The Cooba tends to blow over in windstorms, but nothing is going to be perfect.
Keep them trimmed, and intersperse them with slower growing species like the desert kurrajong and the fork leaf corkwood.
And Damien, I expect better from our Mayor. Taking advice and not doing dummy spits would be a good start.


Visitor from afar to Alex’s backyard
It was in my backyard in Chewings Street in early December, and in another Chewings Street kitchen before that. It is possible that it is a hitchhiker.


Former gallery advisor scathing about its planners
I have a query that Mr Lynch may be able to help with.
“Locations” in the report has 3 headings:
• Recommended (Desert Park).
• NTG preferred (Anzac, 3 versions).
• Sites not recommended (incl Desert Knowledge).
Does “not recommended” mean by the panel or by the NTG, or both?
It seems to me that many of the arguments for the DP could also apply to DK.


Now $90m earmarked for Aboriginal gallery
“Political satire became obsolete when Henry Kissinger was awarded the Nobel peace prize in 1973.”
So said Tom Lehrer, the most brilliant song satirist ever recorded.
For the young and deprived you can check him out on YouTube.
Happy 90th birthday Tom.
The Gunner gunna Government Gallery has now become two thought bubbles.
To paraphrase the Onion Eater: Satire (in the NT) is dead, cremated, pulverised and buried.

Fine words.
“Indigenous governance and agency at the core” and “built according to Indigenous cultural principles” comprehensively rules out the Anzac precinct if they are taken at face value.
And “Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people will be at the forefront of this project, guiding, advising and facilitating this history changing moment”.
Do you understand these fine words Moss and Gunner?
Or are we in for more cognitive dissonance from a Government with its hands firmly over its ears.
