Comment on Advocate: Getting it wrong on their big day by Evelyne Roullet.

Alice Springs News is a exactly what a newspaper should have:
Integrity, vigorous standards of honesty,treating disputed issues with impartiality, providing a forum for divergent opinions, especially those differing from the paper’s editorial point of view.
Accuracy: Exerting maximum effort to print the truth, promptly correcting errors of fact for which the newspaper is responsible.
I read the Alice Springs News everyday with great pleasure. Keep up with the good work.
Responsibility: Choosing news on the basis of its significance and usefulness to the public. Avoiding purely sensational or trivial new. Respecting rights of privacy.
Leadership: Acting with courage in serving the public. Supporting efforts by public officials and individuals to do good works in the community. Serving as a constructive critic of government at all levels.

‘Lost’ man survived on bushfood banquet
Was he really lost? Or was it a demonstration of Aboriginal superiority in skill and knowledge of this land?
No supermarket, no Google, no GPS etc. How many Australians know what is a soakage? And especially make one?
Soakages were once a dependable and important water source for Australian Aboriginal people and although many are dried or contaminated now, they can still be found across the deserts.
Those skills should be taught in all our schools as survival is more important than money.
In case of national disaster, I put my life in Aboriginal hands rather that in our governments’.


Drowning in bad news stories? Try this.

Missing man found safe and well after 17 days
Police said they will interview Morton once he has recovered to learn more about his 17-day disappearance, including how he was able to survive in the extreme conditions. ???
The same way that Aborigines used to survived in Australia before the white settlers came.


The stolen child who went to university
@ David, Posted February 11, 2019 at 11:00 pm: “We need to get some things straight here.
If policemen, holy men of the cloth, miners, pastoralist, vagabonds of the day, had kept their trousers buttoned up and not pursued Aboriginal women, there would not be a stolen generation, that is, children sired by non Aboriginal men as those described.”
Your comment underlines the fact that those children were part of two communities: Aboriginal and European.
I am in total agreement with you, it was a disgrace that those children were stolen from their mother; but in this period of history women of any skin colour did not have many rights.
