Comment on Mum to represent Alice at world triathlon meet by Ross Chippendale.

It is wonderful to hear that someone can break out of the depression cycle with determination and ability.
I really like what she has been quoted as saying in that she manages her depression etc. with diet and exercise. Unlike the headline claiming she has overcome depression.
Long term depression can’t be “overcome”. But it can be managed and this lady has shown us all how she has done that.
I can only wish her success in her sport and a long, content life.

Alcohol reform: the ins and outs
Still fiddling around the edges and getting nowhere? Any restriction on trade for a legal product is clearly open to challenge under other legislation.
What colour to use? Good grief, what a waste of a letter. And barmen rarely monitor the consumption of any drinker. It goes against the owners’ drive for profit.
Why don’t you try and come up with practical ideas ranting about “little dears” is also just a waste. How did those little dears get the booze in the first place? From adfults of course. Any thoughts?

SA Government mum on cattle deals in APY Lands
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.
