Comment on Supreme Court – the inside story by Maya.

Bob, indeed I was mentioning the 240,000 people of the NT, not the 25,000 of Alice Springs.
Indeed we needed better and larger premises. I just hope that this one will do the job despite the inconveniences mentioned in Kieran’s article.

Supreme Court – the inside story
Sharp comments – thank you Kieran. Time will tell how this new white elephant will assist the provision of better justice in Central Australia.
Two buildings show the priorities held by previous Governments to project their public image for a mere 240,000 total population in the NT: Parliament House in Darwin and now the Supreme Court in Alice Springs.
The former has the advantage to offer large breathing spaces overlooking the sea and a good library.
Let’s hope that the higher floors of 19 Parsons Street will be wisely used for the benefit of the community.

Gallery: What we need to know before we spend a cent
To whomever is the un-named consultant who gives us a cool-headed analysis of the BIG project: well said.
After all these considerations, why don’t we make it a SMALL project rather than a BIG one.
Why shouldn’t we develop a modest, personalised Centralian Aboriginal Art Gallery instead of a national one?


Picnic Day is Hiroshima Day too
Thank you to ASNOL for running such a comprehensive piece.
Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear bombing remain the first and hopefully last man-made and man-willed disaster.
The function to be held on the remembrance day at Kungkas Can Cook is now sold out. Sorry…
The RSVP date was 2 August so that the Kungkas could cook, and 80 is their upper limit…
If anyone turns up at the door without booking, I may say “WELCOME”, but no dinner and no seat, just stand at the back for Karina’s delivery and allow a small donation. Alice Springs shows such a fantastic community spirit.


Council survey makes gallery confusion complete
The Council’s survey, as set above, is just confusing the issues, mixing parking bays, in or out of the Gap, etc., with the development itself involving Anzac Oval.
Right now the Council is to decide – after consultation with rate payers – if the residents are in favor or not of using the Anzac Oval site for the development of the “ïconic” National Aboriginal Art Gallery. Simple as that. The rest is here superfluous as it does not depend on the ratepayer.


What Ilparpa farm area residents are facing
Ilparpa … large blocks of land, people building homes and living out of but close to town with the pleasure and the inconvenience of it.

Pitchi Ritchi: Nobody home
