Comment on Night bus service for kids isn’t fixing the problem by Michael Dean.

I remember in 2011 there was a problem and about 30 police were sent here from Darwin and they had a very visible presence on the streets.
Maybe it’s time for a rethink or revisit of this surge.
I personally know of people who didn’t go to Finke for fear of having their property interferred with.
This is affecting business and tourism in the town.
While we can debate the value of a few extra hours of bus service (what the hell is that about anyway? Rewarding poor behaviour with a free ride home to brag to your mates about?) a determined approach is needed to curb all the damage and violence going on.
Council can contribute but only so much.
Mr Gunner, look down, we are down here.

Amazing … $32m budget and $28m in salaries. They know who to look after, don’t they.

Airport charges ‘myth debunked’
Okay. So we have had the report, now time for some action.
Endless reports without any action on the findings is pointless.

Territory tourism playing catch-up
I see in today’s “Perth Now” website / paper that the Western Australian Government has done a deal with Qantas to entice more people to go to Broome than Bali.
Airfares have been reduced for a few days a week to make it more affordable to go to Broome.
Be nice if our own elected government would think outside the box a little bit and learn from other jurisdictions.

National Aboriginal Art Gallery: Anzac Oval off the table
We keep hearing about how much it will cost to build, but does that include the artwork that needs to be on display? Has that been purchased yet? And how much is it expected to cost to run this thing per year? A lot of unanswered questions but nice artist impressions in the advocate, paid by the taxpayer of course.

Alice may follow Wadeye’s lead on street kids
I think at this point anything would be worth a go, but I would definitely love to see some of the Aboriginal corporations have a say and get on board if a suitable model was agreed upon.
