Comment on Indigenous art gallery centrepiece of Gunner’s plans for Alice by James T Smerk.

I’m sorry but is Mr Gunner taking us for fools? He has apparently made this 50 mil commitment that won’t happen until 2020-2021… Well that’s funny as there will be another election around then and the project will most likely be scrapped (if the opposition win) or be a big part of campaign for the election. Sounds to me he is campaigning already for the next election. I can just hear the motto – if you don’t vote for us it won’t get done… How about you start it now or and have it finished by next election mate! Then we will know you’re a man of your word and not just all talk and promises.
P.S The whole Araluen site needs to be bulldozed and re-planned, there is plenty of space there!
and 50 mil sounds like an awful lot of money… but good idea.
Now just to stop tourist/people getting robbed, stabbed, assaulted etc. Our perceived image is a lot more valuable than some future building that may never come about… (sad face)

Government to spend $67m on youth database
Being able to record it and track it doesn’t help if the processes / systems for actioning it once identified are broken.
The system might sound good, we need to fix the whole process and have balls enough to make the tough calls when children are in danger!

As we are the home of the Finke Desert Race why doesn’t someone set up a small race track for people to hire, experience and get a feel for the action in a Finke style race buggy on a Finke style track?


Park, lights: ideas for a brighter town centre  
Isn’t there already a space like that on the other side of the river that never gets used?
Are we going to ignore the fact it would be right beside where drunks like to party and sleep, making it not the safest environment for children?
Also, the Riverside bar which would be opposite it, I’m sure anyone who is familiar with this area knows the danger in drunks fighting during the day, loitering out the front and down the road and dodgy kids who walk around testing all the car doors for an unlocked one.
It is a good idea just a dodgy spot, if they are going to build the Art Gallery then in that big patch of grass in front of it would be a better spot.


Air traffic: Looking down on Alice
Can any Minister stand up for The Alice? No, there appears to be a distinctive lack of caring for the town in all forms. Good work Minister Moss for doing nothing for the town.


More government handouts for alcohol traders
Wouldn’t be surprised to find someone making these decisions has shares in bottle shops, with the floor price increase with bottle shops keeping the excess cash (no going to victims of crime), police providing security work (when they should be employing local security firms instead) for the bottle shops and now this … why not put some of this money and resources towards helping people with drinking problems or victims?
