Comment on Old Melanka site for sale – again by Phil.

Think of all the tourist money and associated benefits Alice has lost in the eight years since this place was closed and subsequently demolished! How typical of developers and councils.

Second Barkly child tragedy highlights need for urgent action
To everyone who criticises my stance on alcohol and other drugs, especially those who mention the jobs involved in supplying such: We are talking about child abuse and rape, murder and critical injuries here, not you mention foetal alcohol syndrome. You people are up there with America’s National Rifle Association.

Michael Dean, I don’t necessarily disagree with you about it being simplistic but alcohol is the root of all this evil and that’s my suggestion.
With respect, what’s your answer? If you just remove it from the Indigenous you’re branded a racist (even though my father is a Murri Man).

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The majority of the NT’s problems whether black or white are based on alcohol.
Let’s draw a line in the sand and just ban alcohol in the Territory.
I’m not a prude, I don’t mind a social drink but I’d be prepared to not consume for the greater good. It’s the only thing that will start the healing from a disease handed down over generations.


Liz Martin says goodbye and good luck
I don’t wish to speak ill of anyone and the museum is/was an amazing place to visit but let’s talk about the elephant in the room “long term poor corporate governance”.
Saying the accountants lost the books is like saying the dog ate the homework.
I really hope this whole mess gets turned around fur Australia’s sake, let alone Alice Springs’s sake. The facility itself is iconic.


Trady vs treadlie: ute driver blows top
Was it a grey / charcoal coloured ute? In March 2009 I was deliberately cut off by such a ute along Larapinta Drive.
He kept going and I fractured various bones including both arms.
I then walked two kilometers to the hospital. He was a local and did it deliberately as he was looking at me and laughing.
I hope there is such a thing as karma for these Bogans.
