Comment on Getting youth issues into FOCAS by Phil Walcott.

Congratulations to all those actively involved in the FOCAS project. This is a prime example of how commUNITY works for the betterment of all those “in the village”.
Attitudinal shift has been what’s required for ages. Those of us who love this town and want it to prosper long into the future are dedicated to finding positive ways to create those possibilities.
Volunteers who help make it happen are vital to its progress. There are so many good people in Alice Springs who can help to models what a progressive and productive community looks like. Modeling and mentoring are imperative ingredients.
Remember … it all begins in the belly. Strong babies become strong kids, adolescents and adults. We are all responsible for contributing to our own and others well-being in the community.
We are a multi-cultural collective so let’s each contribute the knowledge, wisdom and strengths of our respective cultures into continuing the growth of our town and region.
Invest your time in making positive contributions to positive solutions. We’ll all be better for your contributions.

Just throwing a conversation starter into the mix, Sharpie.


Senator Scullion will not contest Federal election
Let’s see where this goes. If Jacinta loses Lingiari, she’ll be parachuted into the role. If she doesn’t, will The Elf make a comeback?


Starting young in multi-culturalism
Such an impressive program driven by devotion, compassion and integrity.
We most certainly are a rich tapestry of collective and inclusive community spirit as evidenced by the wonderful interactions that these kids embraced.
Congratulations to Suzanne and her team for providing these kids with some wonderful experiences. The stuff memories are of.


NT should become the Switzerland of the Southern Hemisphere
I can relate to your frustrations, Kelvin. Thanks for your insights and perceptions. From a personal position, I concur with your views regarding Delia Lawrie.
YES … unfortunately the lacklustre leadership from a number of the parliamentary and bureaucratic circles fail to project any long-term vision beyond election cycles into our Territory’s future. Devising plans isn’t enough. We need visions to underpin them. Singapore and China had visions … and look where they are now. They made “boundless possible” a reality rather than simply a mantra.
We can only hope that there are enough people within those ranks, and those from the commercial and industrial sectors, who are prepared to look at ways that we can collectively enhance the Northern Territory’s present and future.
We have the people, we have the capacity. Now all we need is the will to realise some remarkable opportunities.


Not us and them. Just us, says Cr Melky.
We need to remember that this town is not “black and white”. We are a vibrant multi-cultural commUNITY with over 35 different nationalities represented. Time for inclusion of those groups as well.
