Comment on Unpredictable, unaligned and undaunted: Cr Eli Melky by Evelyne Roullet.

Steve, I understand perfectly the function of a Council and the elected members. What I am against is the coalition due to political allegiance. I talk to elected members on issues dear to me. I also take notice to those who answer my call by emails, phone or media : I sent two phone messages to one who never returned my call; I asked a question here to an aspirant Councillor who ignored me; Eli always do. I had and meeting with our Mayor and I talk to you on the phone.
I choose to whom I address according to the facts of the day, I do not need to agree all time. I am sorry that your personal life takes you away from us and I wish you all the best for you and your family.

How to vote cards should be banned it is treating people like infants who cannot think for themselves. It is like follow the leader or Simon says games.

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.
