Will Aboriginal councillor be blocked from town camps?
I think so too, Rapscullion, and also his children know they are not different that the camps’relatives.
Camps should be called Estate, as they are part of Alice Springs and not fringe residential area. For several decades Geoff Shaw and his spouse Eileen Hoosan have raised their children and grandchildren in their public housing home with a wide yard and a carefully tended garden.
Geoff Shaw is a decorated war veteran who stay in the camp even so this means he cannot have a beer with his friends in his garden.
Should he too leave his home to please those who really do not understand family ties and culture?

So why call her an Aboriginal Councillor? This is my question.


Will Aboriginal councillor be blocked from town camps?
With great respect I would like to ask why Jacinta is an Aboriginal Councillor?
I believe she is a representative of the all community of Alice Springs.
To tell she is an Aboriginal Councillor is an insult to the other white yellow brindle who had voted for her.
A Councillor is elected on his/her work/merit not on his/her ethnicity.

Gallery: Gunner sticks with ANZAC Oval
GUNNER: Every consultation we have done shows the CBD location is the preferred location, and that’s the only location that offers a sense of place and has the space to be able to do it.
Why not proving it to us and shut our mouths by have a petition signed, names and address, instead of spending money and time with a cup of coffee? It will be easy then to see once for all where the majority lies.


Gallery: Gunner sticks with ANZAC Oval
The saga of the “gallery” could be played on the Totem theater’s stage in three acts: Drama, farce, and tragedy.
• Drama – any situation or series of events having vivid, emotional, conflicting, or striking interest or results.
• Farce – comedy in which everything is absolutely absurd. This usually involves some kind of deception or miscommunication.
Farces are popular because they develop in a way that seems more or less realistic, despite the fact that the results are highly improbable.
That is, the characters make decisions that seem to make some sense given the circumstances, but at every turn things get more and more ridiculous
• Tragedy traditionally portrays the protagonist’s fall from high authority or renown to ruin, often predetermined by fate or driven by a tragic flaw. I am waiting for the curtain’s fall.


Wakefield insists on Anzac Oval, ignores majority
In a June 6 media release Dale Wakefield refers to this as “local consultation” which she will be doing “over the next few months”.
In the Mall she is talking of the project saying that a modern gallery is somewhere people go for coffee; this imply that shops will be available in the proposed gallery (makes senses to make a revenue with rents).
How this will help business in the CBD? How many shops will be obliged to close? Even if some relocate, it will mean more vacant shops in the Mall.


Turn rock-throwing into backflips: how community can help
Excellent article on the subject Rainer, but with respect I do not totally agree with this statement:
“The entire Social Services industry has been revolutionised over the last 10 years, with the development of trauma-informed practice being central to the reform. Any new services need to be led by people well trained in this practice”.
Having been a resident since early 70s and worked all my life with teenagers,some residents of Giles House, I see the situation is getting worse than ever and, with respect due to the academic graduates, nothing can replace life experience and good will.
The young social workers too often want to be a friend, without realising that a traumatised or troubled teenager needs an APPROACHABLE, FRIENDLY, RESPONSIBLE adult, not a new friend.
I see a volunteer like a house parent.
Personal requirements of a House Parent in Australia:
• concern for the wellbeing of young people
• understanding of students’ needs and cultural differences
• sense of responsibility
• good leadership skills
• good organisational skills
• able to work closely with others in a community setting
• able to cope with the physical demands of the job.


Cops nab alleged grog runners
@ Russel Guy: The proposal for a 24/7 Youth Centre has no mention of turning the tap down?
We all know why so many kids are on the street but talking of turning down the tap would have been off subject and direction would have changed boycotting the issue.
I went to the meeting to put my hand up for volunteering to help the kids by giving them a safe place, not to debate the flow of alcohol in town.
