Comment on Woman’s narrow miss as sacred tree sheds branches by Hal Duell.

I see two issues here.
In the first, there is no debate that there exist song-lines / dreamtime stories / sacred sites within Alice Springs.
And there’s the rub – within Alice Springs, an urban environment.
While everyone acknowledges the manifest reality of local Indigenous culture, AAPA needs to acknowledge in turn that an expectation of public safety is not unreasonable.
And if that means lopping branches, then lop the branches.
In the second issue, Alice Springs Town Council must find some way to navigate the paralysis that can come with excessive adherence to political correctness.

And I thought to myself, ‘Self, I wonder what wagon that wheel has just come off of?’


No ‘comprehensive business case’ yet for gallery
I think that whether the art gallery is eventually built somewhere in Alice or, as seems more and more likely, in Adelaide, the whole exercise will go down as a textbook study in how NOT to progress a major project.
I don’t know what this means for the Gunner government, but the longer he pushes it, the more the fable of Br’er Rabbit and the Tar Baby spring to mind.


Panel of just two for controversial Ilparpa decision
What! A social engagement with the PM in preference to a local issue that really matters. Onya, Jimmie and Jamie, ya pair of wannabees.


Cr Melky breaks silence on Code of Conduct complaints 
Onya, Rex. If ever there is a local theatrical adaptation of The Silver Skates I hope you take the leading role.
