Town still upset with Stuart statue, say researchers
As the father of the sculptor I am biased, but I hope that the people who object to the Stuart statue are consistent and demand the removal of all the Lest We Forget statues throughout Australia, where the figure portrayed also has a firearm.
My son’s other statues at Aileron depict a First Australian man with a weapon, also a First Australian woman who has just killed a goanna. How dare people carry weapons in order to live off the land? I’ll have to speak to my son, but I guess he has inherited suspect genes.
Stuart’s track record as he explored Australia was exemplary.

Inquiry into fracking: Giving it the green light?
It’s the old story: “There are problems, but they are manageable.”
Let the government be aware of the attitudes of NT voters re fracking. The voters are the people to be affected; they know that we depend absolutely on the quality of the groundwater that we use.
Anything constituting a risk in that area is lunacy, both in health and political terms. Leave the gas where it is. Harness the sun, the wind and the tides for energy.

Flair, imagination, vitality: Watch This Space in 2017
This is what makes Alice Springs such a special, different place in which to live. Congratulations to all, especially Elliat.

When NT was officially ‘a country for the White Man’
Isn’t it fascinating that the “Nimby”s of the world never supply their identity.
“Modern wealthy leftist historians” indeed. Very wrong on all counts.
I was reminded of a similar Letter to the Editor from an unknown critic of mine who wrote, at the time of my appointment as Administrator: “Must we have a left-wing demagogue as Administrator?” I had to look up “demagogue” in the dictionary and had a good laugh when I did so.
Please, Nimby, enlighten us: what exactly do you mean by “everyone else’s tribalism”?

Voices call, Nature responds: Desert Song in the gorge
Nerys and I are in Darwin so we missed this awesome gathering. Congratulations Kieran and Erwin for such a beautiful coverage. All strength to Morris and Barb Stuart for taking us to these musical heights. Congrats to all choir members. Ormiston is truly a fitting venue for such magic.
