Todd Street / Mall? Vibrant? Again?
Seems memories play tricks with people. When was Todd street ever vibrant? Maybe on a Bangtail Muster Day but really! It’s just shops and shops are NOT vibrant.
I know where you got the word vibrant from but that, too, was clouded memory. Shopping centres cannot be vibrant, ever.
It’s people who add this quality. People, and if they don’t feel like being vibrant, then it won’t be.
You must get the people of the town interested, not just landlords, councillors and wannabee politicians. Real people.

Excellent photo. Those dust storms could be epic, couldn’t they. Catching one about to hit is great timing. I recall riding a bicycle around during these storms, wearing a handkerchief for dust protection. Many did that actually. Not today.


CBD planning: The vibrants are at it again
Who and what are the Vibrants? I recall a 1960s Aussie pop group by that name and recall a candidate saying Alice had been vibrant, but none of that seems relevant. Who are they please? Or is it Town Code?


Pine Gap and the Nobel prize the Oz government ignores
Dear Robert, I am totally unaware that “contemplation” of any kind can be prevented. It’s the creation of something that matters, is it not?
And thank you for your martyrdom, someone has to do it. As long as it’s someone else.


Hundreds of empty plastic wine bottles in Todd
How could this be after so many moons have passed? Must be a cultural thing I guess. What happens long term is always culture, is it not?
