Comment on Liquor Commission: Lawyer, social worker represent Alice by Heather Wells.

A friend of mine rang the LLC several months back to complain about the lack of control of the service of alcohol across the town.
He was advised to take videos of the offending venues and send to them.
I can tell you that he told the person on the phone that they should be doing their job and going around and just watching the bar staff and security personnel, not the general public doing their job.
Hopefully this new group will control the sales to both take-away customers and venue goers.

And now, your friendly neighbourhood prison
Why not get the elders at the town camps to take these kids into their care? All of the talk from 12 months ago has resulted in nothing changing.
Make the elders do what they said they would. Over to you Shane, let’s start.

Perhaps getting the ‘elders’ involved with these teenagers may help.

Lhere Artepe director on aggravated assault charge
@ Shane: Please explain why you constantly state this is your country. After all you came via a landmass that eventually broke (paraphrasing) and left you stranded.
Please explain your exact proof of respect for country and culture and tradition.
My property has been violated by your people on four occasions, the latest one leaving me without transport to attend my place of employment which helps your people as well as many others in this town.
I am out of pocket to the value of $700 because of your people. I take care visiting your and your fellow people’s lands, but all that seems not to matter when it comes to you respecting others that are not Aboriginal or Koori or Indigenous, whatever you wish to be called.
Please enlighten me as to what your employment entails and whether your work is equal or more important than my paying taxes to assist your peoples for 47 years.
And editor please press charges, you are the 4th person that I know of who has decided not to press charges against Indigenous people who have assaulted them. Don’t let anymore get away with no punishment for their abhorrent actions. If my offender is caught no matter what I \will press charges.


Cops nab alleged grog runners
@ Evelyne Roullet: I agree with you and the buying online of alcohol. But at least by catching these three it might send a message to others doing exactly the same thing, whether it be by online sales or driving to bottle shops and each buying a certain amount individually.
Having seen the amounts that are bought each day by the same people, they are either alcoholics themselves, have parties every night or the obvious as shown here.
Buying online or shipping it in will not stop but at least this is a start.
