Town still upset with Stuart statue, say researchers
Dr Lovell said that early this year more than 20 artists, writers, and educators from different cultural backgrounds were invited to respond artistically to the 4m high statue, which has been situated in a public park in Alice Springs for the past four years.
May I ask if those artists looked at the statue with the 21st century eye or from one of 1870s era?
The gun? Not so long ago any one working in the outback carried one in his/her vehicle.
@ Fred the Philistine: What environmentalists have to do with the statue? I am what you call a “tree huger” and I like Stuart’s statue.


Inquiry into fracking: Giving it the green light?
Peter, Darren is correct, there will be more jobs and work for people in health care, in counselling and for the undertakers.


Council not keen on offer of help to fight crime
I for one will say, bring the parents to shame and make them face reality in accord with their culture. Traditional Aboriginal cultural values ensure that Aboriginal children are provided with the freedom to explore the world and to learn their responsibilities to care for and protect one other.
While the children are encouraged to explore the world around them, issues of safety are always considered:
They are encouraged to explore, within a safe distance, with safe practices put into place. There are shared values of the local community and other family members to allow the children to learn from their own experiences.
If a child is exposed to any kind of risk, families trust that it will be reported back to them: If someone has abandoned their caring responsibilities, for whatever reason, someone from the local community will inevitably raise the issue.
Roaming the streets and the hills are unsafe, far away from home, and the older teens do not care for the little ones.
So in my humble opinion we should give parental / communities the right to judge and to act.
Give the traditional owners a go, as maybe before meetings, activities etc.
We acknowledge them? In fact we do not, and it is only when we show them some real respect that their children will respect us.


Cops with assault rifles footage six years old
Where will the patrols be? In town? CBD? The hills? The gangs will then shift to other suburbs very quickly and the patrols will not be able to be everywhere. Make the parents responsible!


Compromise was needed to save youth crime plan
@ One country one flag: Which one? In January 1788 to establish a penal colony.
In the century that followed, the British established other colonies on the continent, and European explorers ventured into its interior.
Indigenous Australians were greatly weakened and their numbers diminished by introduced diseases and conflict with the colonists during this period.
Australia is one of few colonies left in the world and if the Australian of the 21st century do not take care, this colony could also disappear.
I can hear the impossibles and see smiles, but I grew up in colony witnessing what happened when white did not care about the natives and even Algeria who was a French department disappeared.
Only arrogant or stupid people do not want to learn from history.
