Hear, hear, Laurence! Thanks for saving me the effort of saying it less eloquently.

‘CLP rehashes fracking policy that caused its wipe-out’
Matthew, your final comment isn’t fair, I feel. The writer’s viewpoint is a pretty common one in our town and the Alice Springs News Online believed it appropriate to share the viewpoint in the interests of fairness.
So will most. Please don’t shoot the messenger for the narrow, blinkered viewpoint represented therein.

Visions from the Centre to light up the Sydney Opera House
How wonderful is this! The Opera House has become such an amazing canvas for all sorts of causes.
I do hope that the space is used for inclusive and not divisive causes of City of Sydney Council and NSW Government.


Will more consultants get tourism out of the mire?
Sorry Local 1, you don’t qualify for a consultancy fee on two grounds:
1. You’re a local and may see our town up close and holistically.
2. You speak too much common sense. Cannot possibly be a bloated “consultant”.

Oh Trevor! I lament the stupidity and endless waste of money.
Who thinks the curbing at the southern Visitor Rock looks good in photos or is even necessary?
It’s like the Coober Pedy council undertaking curbing the streets in that iconic town. Makes you cry. Then the huge waste of money building that fencing and rail / road crossing through The Gap.
You are so correct. We had the Visitor Centre in a lovely position near the taxi rank and the library. Incidentally near the oversize parking on the river. But you’re correct. Put it out at the Visitor Rock.
The government now needs to manufacture visitor attractions. It seems it needs endless committees as well.
Why bother when their recommendations get ignored anyway? Too many of the iconic old buildings have not been protected by the NT and local governments.
Our town, that bloody courthouse that towers and reigns over us all could be a CBD just about anywhere.


Where has Cr Melky been all these years?
You are correct Erwin. So it’s the whole family that needs treatment and being held responsible for the kids they receive payments for.
Start withdrawing welfare monies and very quickly there will be a quantum attitude change.
Here’s a novel idea: do the same for the school truants! The town is awash in truants and truant officers. Please explain Pauline?
Can I propose the old Anzac Hill High School as a protective custody centre for a good shower, some grub and a long sleep in time for a delivered trip to school?


Nine-year-old girl playing in park assaulted
Very sad development in our town. Abusers know no colour. Just look elsewhere. Let’s pray this is an isolated event, the girl recovers quickly and the offenders are caught and there are real consequences. That would be a development.
