Comment on Getting youth issues into FOCAS by Maya.

Goodn’u Bob – your voluntary (and perhaps risky) work between 8pm and 12 midnight is certainly above and beyond what your “generous salary” is asking you to do.

Great achievement, wonderful outcome, and good article explaining it all. Thank you.


Police update on missing UK tourist
Happy for Michael Denon-Ross.
But where did he go with his Renault between 8 and 22 July without notifying any one? To the extent that the police was worried, too?
A detail: In your first report who is Alexis? Or was it to be Michael as in the second episode? The 2 pictures above, are they really of the same man? Life out bush makes you age very fast, without doubt.


Yaye’s Café at Araluen to close tomorrow
Sad … Yaye’s was such a nice venue and offered good food.
I can only assume negative economic outcomes are the trigger that have led to the closure of a seemingly successful cafe-restaurant attached to the best tourist attraction of our town.
We used to have Witchetty’s at Araluen, it had to close down. We had Matilda at the Desert Park, it had to close down. Even the current cafe of the Desert Park, in full high season, cannot operate from 8.30am to 4pm as advertised and offers warmed up frozen pies and white bread sandwiches in plastic containers for lunch. Very disappointing.
Basic accounting will tell to reduce expenses and increase revenue. Are the operators too greedy? Is the rental too high? Loaded tourist coaches seem to by-pass Araluen Arts Centre and give priority to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
If and when the Aboriginal Arts and Culture project eventuates, will the number of tourists to share among the many attractions increase enough to provide patronage to all cafes?
A thorough feasibility study by the Tourism Central Australia (chaired by Ms Dale McIver who recently appeared on QandA) may provide an answer before jumping into any new venture.


Will Minister keep delinquent kids off the streets?
Great new use of the railways workers premises which remained vacant for such a long time. Great ideas too. It remains to see if the street kids will adopt them as their “Bring the camel to water, will he drink?”


Supreme Court – the inside story
Bob, indeed I was mentioning the 240,000 people of the NT, not the 25,000 of Alice Springs.
Indeed we needed better and larger premises. I just hope that this one will do the job despite the inconveniences mentioned in Kieran’s article.
