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?

Aboriginal flag on Anzac Hill: the nays have it 
John Bell, I am certain she smiles at me, but she also cries when she looks down onto the Youth Center.
I quote Erwin Chandla “town’s kids – black and white – mingled there, became friends. This was so too for this writer’s four children raised in Alice Springs.” And I add for my four children who created great friendships there.

War memorial on a women’s sacred site: Does this describe the Alice Springs community? Wars kill while women bear and rear children.
May be Anzac Hill should be given back to the rightful custodians and the wars memorial shifted on the council lawns unless the Arrernte women agree that we keep the site but recognise them with a flag.

Dear Steve, should I thank you for your long CLP propaganda speech? I will not because I respect your views.
However I would like you to explain this statement: “Without taking any responsibility for dealing with the consequences.”
I always take responsibility for my words and actions.
I am not a Green but an naturist from a long ancestry of herbalists / healers.
“Firstly under many circumstances fracking is perfectly safe!” I do not like the many circumstances which imply that in some circumstances it is unsafe as it is enough of one circumstance to stuff our water supply. Will you pay for the consequences?
Let’s talk conventional (I am for) and unconventional (I am against).
Vertical wells in some formations have been routinely fracked for decades.
Conventional reservoirs in the past were most commonly penetrated and developed with vertical and directional wells.
Conventional reservoirs typically have a hydrocarbon accumulation with a distinct oil-water or gas-water contact (due to natural segregation of these fluids via buoyancy). Historically, vertical and directional wells have been perfectly adequate for draining conventional reservoirs.
In contrast, unconventional reservoirs are many things all at the same time.
Coal-bed methane, tight-gas sandstone, ultra-deep water, drilling into high temperature / pressure reservoirs, and shale are all forms of unconventional oil and gas activities and/or production.
Shale reservoirs are most commonly penetrated and developed with horizontal wells. The hydrocarbon in unconventional reservoirs does not have an oil-water or gas-water contact per se (within a targeted shale unit, for instance).
This condition occurs because shale is so fine grained (the pores are so small) that surface tension, capillary forces, and the presence in the reservoir of mixed wettability (of the minerals and organics) yield an extremely diffuse distribution of fluids (water, oil, and gas).
Hydraulic fracturing of the shale helps to liberate the hydrocarbons from the groundmass of the shale and the length of the horizontal well makes the whole operation economically feasible!
But do not play with our water supply.

Land taxes or fracking for revenues? I choose Land Taxes!
