Comment on Hordes of kids rampage: 50 cars hit by Leigh Childs.

Erwin, I would like to know the opinions of the parents of these young people. From what I saw and experienced in 30 years in Alice is that indigenous parents love their children dearly, BUT, seem to have no ‘control’ over them. A different paradigm from the western/European model, where there are quite a few behaviours set out for young people to follow. This being reinforced in our western/European style schools.

Thank you Mr/Ms Classic Outback Trial for the info. Will certainly look up the site.


Old but fast: Rally cars criss-cross The Centre
Oh my gawd, don’t tell me that that auto in the top photo is a 280SL Merc with the concave roof. My childhood dream car. Sigh. Do you know, Erwin?


ALP to ram through alcohol floor price: Lambley
I’m with you Hal. I have admired Robyn’s usual straight talk. But I also diverge at this point.
Robyn you may have well founded reservations about process but the alcohol crisis in Alice is not going to go away all by itself.
As Hal points out, Canada and other countries have had measurable reductions in alcohol abuse. Please check it out and by all means keep a good eye on the process.


Local government: A lot of action beyond the 3Rs
Fred and Hal: Do either of you have any knowledge or experience of the town of Broken Hill? Seems to me that this similar sized town; arid zone; declining mining industry; um, very blokey town … has been quite successful at reinventing itself as an arts hub and tourist town. What do you think?


Bush community learning centre to close
Erwin, any response from CLC, regarding supporting this organisation? Any hint of interest … any hint of caring what happens to this group of people. Any reason given why some pennies can’t be thrown their way? A n y t h i n g at all ?
