Comment on Police clash with protestors by Laurence.

So if you are that close to a takedown and an arrest being made, I really have little, no actually I have no sympathy for you.
Silly people, silly actions.

Town Council still blocking two servos: United
Thanks Alex. I totally forgot about the Centre servo where KFC are and the Shell Oasis (sort of) has been replaced by the Coles / Shell servo on the corner.
As usual you are a font of knowledge in regards to Alice Springs! Cheers.

Town Council still blocking two servos: United
Interesting that you would say that Alex, and please correct me if I am wrong on this.
Since I came to live in Alice Springs we have lost three service stations, Shell Todd, the Mobil Palms and Cnr Smith Street and Stuart Highway, but have gained at least six others (Truck Stop, Heavitree Gap, Mobil Larapinta, Mobil Eastside, Transit Plaza and the Woolies station).
I can’t see another couple doing much damage, but am not sure about the location of one in the Beaurepaires site. Surely we have enough trouble on that corner already.

Aboriginal flag on Anzac Hill: it’s not over yet
This petition is to ask the local council to fly the Aboriginal flag on ANZAC Hill.
So therefore it is a local issue and as such should only be available to local input or only have the local petitioners be counted.
The bandwagon jumpers that have added their two cents’ worth to this community discussion will only cause more confusion and cloud the issue further.
From a population of about 27,000(ish) having a thousand signatures is an insignificant number, less than 4% of the population, and that is without dismissing the “non-local” input.

Government lied on liquor, says Lambley, demands poll
The government also says it’s doing a good job, I laughed out loud at that.
The evidence points to the contrary, they seem to be even more inept than those that preceded them (hard to believe).
The good news for us long suffering residents is that we will more than likely have them for another term (sigh).
But they will lose all their southern urban seats and as they did last time they were in powers and hang in there thanks to Darwin’s northern suburbs.

Desert Knowledge precinct preferred for youth detention facility
Oh My Gosh. The heart I wear on my sleeve is swelling with pride, my rose-coloured glasses are seeing rainbows all over our town.
Rejoice people for the end of the malaise that effects us all is here, I feel so warm and fuzzy all over. I can’t wait for the programs to kick off and produce some wonderful future leaders.
I wonder if Ms Wakefield is enjoying drinking from the poisoned chalice that is youth justice and I can’t wait to see the outcome of this “feel good, throw cash but achieve nothing” exercise.
But I know some NGOs will produce some excellent statistics that will prove how effective “the program” is/was, by showing that the juvenile offenders stopped being juvenile offenders.
It will probably have nothing to do with them turning 18.
