Comment on 10 ideas for revitalising the Alice Springs CBD by Free Cash Giveaway.

I don’t think we should be giving money to businesses in the mall. They should pay their own way. And we should encourage them to not sit on an empty asset by charging higher rates for empty shopfronts.

Chance for elders to help cops fight youth crime?
Youth have no respect for elders. The government has no respect for elders. The general public has no respect for elders. And after a 150 years of no respect from the new settlers (?), respective governments, councils etc many of the elders also have no respect for themselves. And so the youth have no respect either. A flag is not to hard, surely. Its just a symbol of course, so it will need some back up action.


Lightshows: nature can do it so much better
Wouldn’t it be great if the government could invest $2 million a year on a local festival instead of supporting a Sydney company to import a festival. $2 million into the local economy supporting artists, creatives, trades, all the school kids could get involved etc etc Awesome, but nah, we’ll send the money to Sydney. Pathetic!


Story Wall, buffel and Jacinta
Thanks Alex for a bit of history and the truth about buffel. It is ravaging our natural landscape.


Gunner re-opens the Rivers of Grog floodgates
It would be interesting to know the sales figures for alcohol from all the outlets collectively while the coppers were there compared to when they weren’t. How much less grog was sold?
Or was it the same just more sold to the black marketeers for on selling.
Basically to much grog is being drunk we need to lower that, which means financial losses to the sellers, pubs won’t be happy.
I think perhaps we need to get rid of a few licences. Take away should perhaps only be sold from the hotels that already have bottlos. That’d be the Gap and Todd Tavern. Concentrate the outlets and save police time.
Also if the coppers are noticing Joe Blogs buying up big on the cheap plonk every other day, they might get an idea where to look for the black market.


New attraction while we can’t look after the ones we have?
And as for the national indigenous cultural centre, what a joke when we have no respect or care for the very many cultural / sacred sites within our town.
