Alex, good to know the old bloke was partly right at least.

Trees on Melanka block no longer sacred?
I am sure that some idiot can think of a story about the trees, preferably while high on some drug, any drug will do and then someone can put a sign up and tourists can say ooh ahh and take photos. I spose that would be the closest that anything can come to happening on that bit of land.
Once was told by an old bloke that the oldest thing on that block was the buildings that were pulled down.

Stick to your guns, Gunner: Fracking is what the mega rich multi nationals do because they do not give a stuff about Australia and it is so good to see a politician stand up to them.


CDP work for the dole scheme gets a hammering
A mongrel idea that was introduced in the 80s at an Aboriginal community by the name of Balgo (and others) situated in WA 900 Km north west of Alice Springs.
I was employed there as a mechanic and had a number of people working in the workshop and they were being paid as well as others in the store, the office, with the plumber, the brick layer, the electrician, the school as well as those doing many other tasks and the equivalent of council works, road works within the community and surrounding areas. These people worked hard and were paid a wage.
The unbelievable happened with outside Government bodies including the Department of Aboriginal Affairs coming along and telling these people they now had to work for the dole.
The simplest way that I can put it is that this community changed for the worse, those who once worked for a wage then worked for the dole and I ask, how many people would do this? How many people would allow this to be forced upon them?
It was OK for myself and other whites who worked there, we lost nothing except maybe a certain amount of respect because those who lost a wage worked equally as hard as us. One thing I found unfathomable was the fact that one group could be singled out like this.
Just maybe this “new” idea is somewhat different, but is it really? And is it fair?


Kittles car yard empty after kids run amok
The way this country is going it is only a matter of time before there is Sharia law and then and only then will there be justice that at the moment neither black or white people seem capable of dishing out.
Off subject?
No it is spot on subject as the control and punishment of criminals in this country is little more than non existent.
On the bright side these little criminals are damaging something that is part owned (in name anyhow) by their own and they are through their criminal acts providing employment to many trades and professions (except the police as they are doing little to prevent it in the first place). Want to rubbish what I have wrote?
Go ahead as in doing so you are showing that your attitude is part of the problem.


Prove I’m wrong and I’ll step down: Cr Melky
Cr Melky, a most honorable man with a love and passion for Alice Springs, has committed the ultimate sin in attempting to save the ratepayers’ money.


Fracking probe head rejects suggestion advisors may be compromised
Am I reading this right in that a decision on fracking boils down to cost?
How on earth can the public have faith in this whole thing when the argument of cost comes into it?
Fracking is used solely because the mega rich multinational companies who do not give a dam about our country have politicians doing the suck up to them and no doubt there is a lot of palms greased in the process.
If any politician cared one iota about Australia they would be against fracking.
