Comment on Dick Kimber: premier scholar of Central Australia by Evelyne Roullet.

Dick and Iain, two powerful figures in our community: great, humble,friendly who made me welcome at work at Alice High in the ’70s, will be forever in my memories.
The booklet by Dick,”Cultural values associated with Alice Springs water”, was part of my toolkit when working in the tourism industry.

Domenico, to be able to “reinforce our shared values”, we should know what they are and shared by whom?
Values are standards or ideals with which we evaluate actions, people, things, or situations. But because Alice Springs is a multicultural community its members do not have all the same ideas about “value”.
If moral values are based on perceptions of right and wrong, social values do not always do so.They may also include ideas about things being socially acceptable: Social values are often based on things like majority rule and tradition.

Gallery: The Gunner spin goes on
Alice should have a cultural centre and let’s leave the art gallery to Adelaide.
Art been part of the culture, we will have both.
I fail to understand why Mr Gunner blames the Town Council. The Town Council is us the residents and ratepayers, and we said no to Anzac Oval. What is so hard to understand?

Thinking about Dreaming
Thank you, Dick. I hope this article will be followed by more, because it reflects and explains the roots of the Aboriginal culture.
We talk of art gallery, cultural center, but the majority of the residents of our town have no understanding of what it means to be an Aborigine.
It has been said about Bill Harney that he was the only white man who could think like an Aborigine. Whoever said that did not know you.

A student should have led the chants: Jimmy Cocking
@ Formerlocal4: I wrote: “Do not believe in the climate change action.” The word action makes all the difference.

Help from fracking campaigner, or manipulating students?
NEWS: Ms Pietsch was telling them what to say and how to say it and how often to say it. She is guiding them. She was giving instructions to the supposedly independent student protesters.
OK, but if no-one had led the chant it would have been a cacophony and whingers would have said: “Could this have been organised better?”
