Comment on The Greens Senator and that four-letter-word: Work. by Evelyne Roullet.

After reading this interview my thoughts were: “Thank God I am out of the political arena.”
Quote: “There are a myriad issues around alcohol and drug abuse. I disagree with the way the government addresses these issues. They kowtow in the NT to the hotel industry. They chop and change programs. I’m not pretending it’s easy but the current approach, doing more of the same, is not going to work.” End of quote.
It is election time, a good time to tell the voters what a party would love to do on those issues.
To acknowledge problems and stating disagreement is telling what the majority of us are thinking, and next Saturday we will vote hoping to get results no empty comments.

Four weeks to comment on fracking chaos
@ Recent visitor of Alice
You are very correct and this have been said over and over. Every time I read such comment this song come to my head:
I talk to the trees
But they don’t listen to me
I talk to the stars
But they never hear me
The breeze hasn’t time
To stop and hear what I say
I talk to them all in vain

I hope that the last bit will be coming soon:
But suddenly my words
Reach someone else’s ear
At someone else’s heart strings too
I tell you my dreams
And while you’re listening to me
I suddenly see them come true


Tree death and the challenge of heatwaves
Maskat: We used to look after our footpath until the Council told us they were taking over … with a rise in the rates of course.
As for: “Generally council should also make sure that pathways are actually available to people who try to walk, ride, have prams or are in wheelchairs” – try to go with a pram and toddlers in Brown and Priest Streets.

James T Smerk: Could you develop your comment by explaining why it would have been better for Alice Springs with Jessica?


Society stops crime, not the police
Spot on Dominico especially “appreciation and respect for Indigenous cultural values”.
If a quiz/survey was conducted on the basic knowledge regarding Aboriginal culture, how many of us will pass?
For fact I know some (quite a few) Europeans working for years with Aborigenes who still do not have basic knowledge of the culture / history / background of the people they served.
In this age there are no more excuses for asking: “Why didn’t we know? Why were we not told?”
