I agree with you Alex: One part-time worker with CAALAS …

Comment on Judge Borchers’ position should be assessed: CAALAS by Evelyne Roullet.

I agree with you Alex: One part-time worker with CAALAS is not able to “work closely with EVERY SINGLE young person going through Central Australian court system, their family, community, lawyer, school and other service-providers to provide the young person with the support they need to get back on track and stay out of trouble”. But has CAALAS asked for more help?

Peter, it is obvious that we do not see or understand the same from the court transcript.
I see the judge interrupting the lawyer when the lawyer does not answer the question or has no clue.
The lawyer was not prepared and I feel this lad was misrepresented.
A judge makes judgement with the facts presented to him in a clear fashion not with “if’ and “may be”.
In a government of laws, the responsibility of the courts is to interpret and apply the law.
Each case before a court of law involves a controversy that the court must resolve as the institution in which every member of the community must have confidence. Each case presents its own unique set of facts and issues. The role of the judicial branch is to do justice according to law in each case.
As Chief Justice James Spigelman AC (Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of New South Wales 19 May, 1998,until 31 May 2011) has explained: “The desire of bureaucrats and others to measure performance risks the wood being missed for the trees.”
I feel it is the case here.

@ My view 100% with you:
Parents and educators know that love mixed with firm discipline is what produces functional happy children.
When we discipline children we show them that we care.
To discipline is not to punish, is not to command obedience, it is to teach and a disciple is a student.
The word “discipline” is from the Latin word disciplina meaning “instruction and training”. It’s derived from the root word discere – “to learn.”
Discipline is to study, learn, train, and apply a system of standards.

Careful with that Jibe, Eugene: A jibe can also be an insulting remark as another way to spell gibe (to make taunting, heckling, or jeering remarks).
No one is called Eugene in this discussion, and if for some valid reason you cannot use your name, do not use a pseudo who can be humiliating and antagonising.
Now could you tell what was done, and by which services, between March and May to help this troubled, traumatised lad?

Gallery business case far from ‘well underway’
Mark, join the club.
I believe this project, sometime called Cultural Center sometime Art Galley ( I do not know if it is one building or two), is a red herring to take people’s attention away from more important issues. I would like to read here what this government have achieved since the elections, ie.more jobs? reduction in crimes?
what about the budget deficit?
We have a beautiful art and museum center in Araluen, a museum in town with plenty of art galleries and sporting facilities.
Could shops keepers tell us if businesses have risen since the opening of the museum?
Could the Tourism bureau shows us the increase in visitors?


Town Council riven by conflict, lack of leadership
Cr Matt Paterson, do you really believe that the attitude of our PM, Jacinta Price and Senator Scullion are a good role model for our youths?
In my eyes they are three snobs in the real sense of the term: “Peacocks with no breeding.”
Where did they learn their manners and diplomacy?
Of course the whole town could not have be on the guests list, but the rightful custodians of the town and the councillors representatives of the community should have been on it.
Jacinta, so proud to be Warlpiri / Irish, should have shown respect of protocols and sensitivities.
As an educator I always believe that children should be taught tact: It encompasses many things, including emotional intelligence, respect, discretion, self-awareness, thoughtfulness, compassion, subtlety, honesty, diplomacy, and courtesy.
I did not see any of those elements in the PM visit.
Tact is strongly influenced by culture and because we are a multicultural society tact is important.


Chin up, says tourism pioneer: Go and sell it
“The friendly people, the hospitality, the natural beauty – they’re all still here.”
Yes, what is missing are local tour guides with not only the knowledge of the fauna and flora but who still have the true blue streak of larrikinism.


Four councillors walk out of tonight’s Town Council meeting
Walk out of a meeting to show objection and disagreement show character because they deflect what will otherwise be a confrontation or slanging match
This is also the reason why parents and educators ask a child to go for a walk, because if it is the adult who walk out, the child perceive this as a victory until he/she understand that it is the contrary.
Restraint is a virtue related to the concept of freedom: By letting go, you can actually control your mind instead of having your mind control you.


Town Council riven by conflict, lack of leadership
Who invite should pay the bill:if the Town Council invited the PM the ratepayers should pay; if Jacinta Price invited him she should pay. I do not give her the title of councillor, because in my opinion political parties are infiltrating local government and pushing their agendas to the detriment of local issues. She was elected as a representative of the whole community not as a CLP candidate
Councillors are supposed to be there for community issues, so unless the PM came with solutions for our problems we should not fork out for the bill.
POLITICAL parties should be banned from local government.
