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.

Air traffic: Looking down on Alice
Sad to see Hon Lauren Moss MLA not fighting for Alice Springs and its survival.
What sort of Tourism Minister is she? Thanks to Warren our Federal MP to speak up for us.
After all he lives here with us and so is his large family.
Perhaps seeing it in reverse, to increase the number of flights and making them slightly cheaper will incite people to come here and locals to go south east and west more often, therefore increasing the number of sales two-ways. A win-win?


Coles Mural: Government, Heritage Council fall silent
The mural shows part of our history, the way we were, and it would be bad to get rid of any sign of our past.
On the past we build the future. Without past we are nothing just floating in limbo.
It is not so much the artistic value of the mural which counts but what it represents in the timeline if our development. So little has been kept of the beginnings of Mbantua.
They may be humble but this is a record.
Lauren Moss should appreciate the value of the our recent history. The dollar sign does not match.
