Comment on On youth prisons: grandmothers, reformers, revolutionaries by James T Smerk.

I commend these women on speaking out. However I don’t think their plan would work, don’t get me wrong I would love it if it could work! Why can’t we build a purpose-built location (on country), not prison, more boarding house for kids to learn and develop skill with elders talking and teaching.

I would like to see more training/coaching for parents or soon to be parents on their responsibilities and help getting them permanent housing to bring up their families in a stable way.

It’s a fact that if you turn your back on modern society’s ways and language you are essentially turning your back on prospering and your generations’ chances to come also.

I also believe you should have to be Aboriginal or part to sell any Aboriginal art works in Australia, it’s their art and should be their profits.

I could go on forever but that’ll do…

Most youth crime down to locals, not bush visitors
Well said Ginnia. The government is failing in its responsibility of ensuring a safe environment for its people.
Oh and I’m sure most people don’t care where the people committing the crimes come from, they just want it to stop and punishments to reflect the town’s interest.

Wow John, I didn’t know anything about the whole situation but what you have said certainly insinuates something …


Warrant for police search of construction firm office
Richard and Laurence, I’m not sure what you are reading but it looks like they are just informing us on a fact, they aren’t alleging anything.
I hope there is nothing wrong and maybe it’s just something that has nothing to do with the running of the company.


Master plan for town, reconciliation plan for Australia Day
The Flags should stay as they are, they represent something that shouldn’t be trivialised with [by] adding another flag for location reasons or any other. There is nothing wrong with adding an Aboriginal flag anywhere else in Alice, maybe even a huge one on the ranges or even a huge statue up there! I feel people pushing the adding of a flag to this specific location are just after publicity and trying to stir trouble. In a town that already has enough of that. I’m sure these same people will try to pick apart what I have said to try to create an argument, when what we need are ideas and constructive thinking.
