Comment on Council to introduce kerbside recycling by Evelyne Roullet.

To add insult to injury, our Councillors “urge residents to mow their front verges”. My fees are $40 an hour to cover time and equipment!
I remember the seventies where residents were responsible for their kerbside. Then the Council decided to do the job for a rise in the rates, naturally!
If the Council has the money to deal with the overgrowth it can hire subcontractors.
PS: Up to now I have kept my footpath free of weeds, but it was my wishes not the wishes of the Councillors.

Pete? Confidential section? Please explain! In my opinion, Council should not have confidential section.
They are elected by us and working for us but that does not give the right to have secrets from us. Councillors should keep in mind that they are our employees, as we are paying their wages.
We do not want to be kept in the dark, as we are not mushrooms, but as ratepayers we are share holders and have rights. Like a French will say: “The kings are kings because we let them be kings.”


Council to introduce kerbside recycling
Excellent, but why do we have to be charged for it? What if we do not want it? Quote: “Diverting recyclables from the waste stream will extend the lifespan of our landfill site, saving Council and the community costs in the long term.”
Are we paying for our own savings? Who is really the beneficiary of the scheme?

Gallery: The Gunner spin goes on
Alice should have a cultural centre and let’s leave the art gallery to Adelaide.
Art been part of the culture, we will have both.
I fail to understand why Mr Gunner blames the Town Council. The Town Council is us the residents and ratepayers, and we said no to Anzac Oval. What is so hard to understand?


Thinking about Dreaming
Thank you, Dick. I hope this article will be followed by more, because it reflects and explains the roots of the Aboriginal culture.
We talk of art gallery, cultural center, but the majority of the residents of our town have no understanding of what it means to be an Aborigine.
It has been said about Bill Harney that he was the only white man who could think like an Aborigine. Whoever said that did not know you.


A student should have led the chants: Jimmy Cocking
@ Formerlocal4: I wrote: “Do not believe in the climate change action.” The word action makes all the difference.


Help from fracking campaigner, or manipulating students?
NEWS: Ms Pietsch was telling them what to say and how to say it and how often to say it. She is guiding them. She was giving instructions to the supposedly independent student protesters.
OK, but if no-one had led the chant it would have been a cacophony and whingers would have said: “Could this have been organised better?”

It is not worth getting your knickers in the knot for this.
The people who do not believe in the climate change action would have found something else to diminish the value of the protest.
Personally it would have been better to have the protest after school or on a week-end to demonstrate that young people are willing to give their time for what they believe in.
