Comment on ‘I sign the cheques’: Scullion by Maths.

A lot of money has been sent to Darwin over the years, meant for remote communities but instead was used for pork barreling in the northern suburbs etc.
How much of the SIHIP money was chewed up by management? The corruption starts at the top.

He said non indigenous people stealing from Aboriginal people has been going on far to long. Probably since 1788, by my calculations, and still happening.

Spread renewables, government asked
Brunswick council had a scheme 30 years ago. You could round up your power bill or just pay any amount extra and it would go to renewable energy infrastructure.
What you payed was tallied and the value of the renewable energy produced by your investment was deducted from your future bills.


Art at Anzac oval: No new rugby fields, says Lambley
Corner of Parsons Street and the highway: The rail yards are an empty, ugly space, as close to the CBD as Anzac.


National Indigenous gallery process hijacked?
Yep. Railyards.


Recommendations in for National Indigenous Art Gallery site
No to either option. Anzac oval is used by everyone, sports, events (Midnight Oil) etc.
It’s a good looking spot with Anzac Hill and the river. We should keep, it not build some monolithic potential white elephant of an architect’s wet dream there. Why crowd ourselves in?
A much better plan: Build your flash building on the wasteland near the railway line, bang, right on the highway.
You could incorporate a new train station into it, begin the process of taking the freight yards south of The Gap. Then also build on a couple of vacant blocks in town, next door to KFC, old servo opposite Catholic Church, etc and use some if the government buildings in town as specialist galleries for different topics.
It will add value to all the buildings and businesses around them.
Put some bucks into some public art to link these sites through walking trails. Put some dollars into Olive Pink, Pioneer Women’s Hall of Fame, Araluen, Desert Park, also for specialist displays and events.
An amphitheatre at Melanka’s. Bring life to the whole town not just one isolated area.
And please don’t build a space to store expensive collections of art in a flood zone.


Ratepayer, do you want your money back?
Such a naive idea could only come from the same bloke, Steve, who had the extraordinary ridiculous idea of saving the council and ratepayers the thousands of dollars in the first place.
