Comment on Council partnership in CBD complex seems certain by Russell Bray.

Leave Flynn church and my old Hartley Street School alone. It has been there before all you people were born and has served its purpose in the past.
Ruining a lovely place such as Flynn lawns where locals sit and enjoy. Should you want to go up one or two stories use the car parks already in existence in Hartlet Street and Stott Terrace.
It would not matter to go two up for we already have a football oval shape ugly looking court house.
The cultural centre could be built on the Melanka site and paid for by the Central Land Council through ABA where black fellow money is kept and of which we see nothing. Through Centrecorp which is part of the Yeperenye Shopping Centre.
Build so all the black corporations can come together and be one. Surely you directors on these boards can organise something for us blackfellas.
Should this happen just think of all our people owning our own art store instead of our people being ripped off like they are today. Just walk down the Mall.

I agree with Mabel. GO back NORTH.
Lhere Artepe since it was taken over by the so called new Acting CEO and directors even themselves do not what goes on.
Some directors saying a new $80,000 plus Toyota for the acting CEO was never passed through the directors of Lhere Atepe.
The old 4×4 was given to a director of Untuye when it should be for the use of every estate group for meetings. NEVER.
Lhere Artepe should be the leaders in dealing with the crime spree that is happening. It is happening again. This so called native title organisation was formed to help all Arunta people and not the chosen few.
ALL ABOUT NEPOTISM and mates on the so-called board. This is not the only black organisation on the way it is run – they are all the same.
I shudder to see when these people get hold of the moneys handed out by the Government in the near future.
The Government should do a investigation on all the organisations – YEARLY – to see how the money is spent.
WHAT A JOKE. These so called traditional men when they speak to people they stab each other in the BACK.


Tom Cleary: Cattle man with a huge smile
I first remember this gentleman when I was a young boy when he visited the Gap Cottages.
He would come every time when in town to say hello and sit with his mates.
I would run into this smiling, gentle man in town these later years shake his hand and sit with him.
A quiet man whom I will never forget.


Cr Satour wants answers on ‘verbal abuse & violence threat’
Invited, I attended a council meeting months ago. Jacinta one end of the table, Catherine on the other.
From the time the meeting started these two girls were at each other, ignorant of the other Aboriginal people visitors and councillors in the room.
It’s all about themselves not caring for the town. All through this the mayor sat and said nothing when he should have intervened.
The meeting was about homeless children, getting them off the streets, protecting them from violence.
Now if our children saw this, the way two grown people act, what would be going through their minds?Are they jealous of each other being on the council, or who is the best singer of the two?
Grow up, you are there for the town and the people, not yourselves.


No plans to stop NATS: Gunner
All to do with money, not the safety and lives of the people. Just goes to show how did these so called safety officers ever get their piece of paper to take the lives of innocent people in their hands.
A safe place Gunner does recon. Not so safe the way the government runs the country.


Land councils acted behind our backs, say pipeline TOs
Let us come together as one and organise a people power meeting and march against the Central Land Council, who are the Government, and show Australia and the rest of the world we care for our ancestors’ land.
Central Land Council talk to the wrong people, and not all the right people, for when they were chasing the land at Victory Downs, Mt. Cavanagh, Mulga Park, Kulgera and Umbreara Stations, meeting at Eagle Bore, my wife and a lot of other people were never invited or picked up to vote for or against what they were doing.
