Comment on Aboriginal flag on Anzac Hill: it’s not over yet by Evelyne Roullet.

Remembering and honouring our dead takes more than flags and poppies once or twice a year.
While we come together to remember fallen soldiers, we should reflect on the fact they died in vain. They went selflessly. They fought bravely. They sacrificed nobly for us to live in peace.
They lived in the best traditions of duty, honour and country, and as long as we bicker and fight for small things they died for nothing and we should be ashamed.

Aboriginal flag on Anzac Hill: it’s not over yet
Yes Steve, and I am not really happy about it: I signed it, believing it was all, but horror, my French relatives seen it on Facebook! And signed thinking to do me a favour! I have not put it on Facebook so who has?

Air traffic: Looking down on Alice
“There will now be less capacity for Centralians to travel directly to Cairns and Perth.”
It has been like this for a longtime: Qantas wanting to fill up its planes had Cairn – Perth directed to Alice Springs with a feeble excuse and Alice Springs Perth cancelled with another excuse.
Then, everybody was put on a Melbourne flight, made to wait for hours for a Perth flight. Tough, like if your holidays or business were ruined.

What would be Paris without the Eiffel Tower? Sydney without the bridge, the opera house? London without Big Ben?
What will be left of Alice in years to come? Nothing – it will be just a town in Australia.

Ms Moss is not an artist and has no idea of what makes Alice Springs a town like Alice.


Anzac Oval will be site for gallery: Gunner
Mister Gunner is playing with words, splitting hair.
Normally a precinct is a building and its boundary like a school precinct: building and playground. Vehicles cannot enter a precinct (except service vehicles).
An oval is a play/sport ground. Part of our oval will become included in the precinct and the rest will be car parks joined to the gallery precinct.
It will not be big enough for a large tourist bus, caravans and the local wishing to park near the CBD.
