@ Elvis: Were the traditional owners consulted when in 1961 Government officers and cattlemen started releasing seeds on 31 stations in the Centre? It is the Europeans’ mess, let them fix it.

Aboriginal flag on Anzac Hill: the nays have it 
John Bell, I am certain she smiles at me, but she also cries when she looks down onto the Youth Center.
I quote Erwin Chandla “town’s kids – black and white – mingled there, became friends. This was so too for this writer’s four children raised in Alice Springs.” And I add for my four children who created great friendships there.

War memorial on a women’s sacred site: Does this describe the Alice Springs community? Wars kill while women bear and rear children.
May be Anzac Hill should be given back to the rightful custodians and the wars memorial shifted on the council lawns unless the Arrernte women agree that we keep the site but recognise them with a flag.


‘Dangerous, alarming’ property tax strongly opposed by council
Dear Steve, should I thank you for your long CLP propaganda speech? I will not because I respect your views.
However I would like you to explain this statement: “Without taking any responsibility for dealing with the consequences.”
I always take responsibility for my words and actions.
I am not a Green but an naturist from a long ancestry of herbalists / healers.
“Firstly under many circumstances fracking is perfectly safe!” I do not like the many circumstances which imply that in some circumstances it is unsafe as it is enough of one circumstance to stuff our water supply. Will you pay for the consequences?
Let’s talk conventional (I am for) and unconventional (I am against).
Vertical wells in some formations have been routinely fracked for decades.
Conventional reservoirs in the past were most commonly penetrated and developed with vertical and directional wells.
Conventional reservoirs typically have a hydrocarbon accumulation with a distinct oil-water or gas-water contact (due to natural segregation of these fluids via buoyancy). Historically, vertical and directional wells have been perfectly adequate for draining conventional reservoirs.
In contrast, unconventional reservoirs are many things all at the same time.
Coal-bed methane, tight-gas sandstone, ultra-deep water, drilling into high temperature / pressure reservoirs, and shale are all forms of unconventional oil and gas activities and/or production.
Shale reservoirs are most commonly penetrated and developed with horizontal wells. The hydrocarbon in unconventional reservoirs does not have an oil-water or gas-water contact per se (within a targeted shale unit, for instance).
This condition occurs because shale is so fine grained (the pores are so small) that surface tension, capillary forces, and the presence in the reservoir of mixed wettability (of the minerals and organics) yield an extremely diffuse distribution of fluids (water, oil, and gas).
Hydraulic fracturing of the shale helps to liberate the hydrocarbons from the groundmass of the shale and the length of the horizontal well makes the whole operation economically feasible!
But do not play with our water supply.

Land taxes or fracking for revenues? I choose Land Taxes!


Bailed juveniles next-door to you soon?
CAALAS, YA, CEO of OCF, YJAP.
Sound like a code or foreign language to me uneducated / uninitiated old lady.
Could we have the full name of those associations?
YA can be so many things.
Jap is an English abbreviation of the word “Japanese”.
OCF Operational Consensus Forecasts or Oversea Christian Fellowship?
I would like to understand the post. Thank you.
