@ Karen. Hillary Clinton:”Twenty years ago, I wrote a book called ‘It Takes a Village.’ And a lot of people looked at the title and asked, ‘What the heck do you mean by that?’ This is what I mean. None of us can raise a family, build a business, heal a community or lift a country totally alone.”

I maintain that if anyone must insult, do it with your name.
Village has more than a definition and is not relevant to our contemporary way of life. So let us use the word Community.
The people who helped were neighbours, strangers in the street, as well as professionals, of course.
I still look after children who are not Aborigines, and do not believe in spanking, but in strong voice if needed. One mother told me: “Do not raise your voice when you talk to children. I wonder about the future behaviour of the child.

Laurence, accept my apology for your my remarks about your pseudonym. I suppose I was upset by your rich colorful language telling me that I am an idiot because of my beliefs: “Usual useful idiots chanting that it takes the whole of a village to raise a child.” Your quote, not mine! So I thought if I need to be insulted I want to know the person who does it; fair?
I quote Hillary Clinton to show that “village” does not mean buildings, but “community”.


Pack of girls attacked me, says Chinese on working holiday
I have questions for Maccas supervisor and staff:
• She started at 10pm and the shift ended at 2am on Sunday. She must be tired.
• When she left she discovered her bike had been stolen. Does Maccas have no secure parking for staff?
• So she set out on foot to the home of a friend in the Old Eastside, where she is staying. Could anyone, as she was not alone, have given her a lift? Or called a taxi? I was under impression that it was the employer’s responsibility to insure the safety of their employees.

Gallery: Council did not say boo
Well said Louise and I believe that all involve in NT Government and Town Council should read the book of Kathleen Kemaree Wallace, Listen deeply.
Deep listening means to hear every dimension of the other person, both what is said as well as what is implied.
It means to hear the words and the emotions underneath them and to hear the general disposition and mood of the person: To hear all of it.
Kathleen is the senior artist for the art centre and over the last 20 years has mentored and supported other women artists and young women.
She is internationally regarded and her artworks can be found in many major Australian Collections.
Two years ago, over 100 non-Indigenous people from across Australia gathered at the Edge of the Sacred conference at White Gums at Honeymoon Gap, outside of Alice Springs, to hear Miriam Rose Ungunmerr-Baumann and others speak about the spiritual road to reconciliation with Aboriginal people.
Dr Miriam-Rose Ungunmerr (AO) is an Aboriginal elder from Nauiyu (Daly River), where she served for many years as the principal of the local Catholic primary school. She is a renowned artist, activist, writer and public speaker.
Rather than speak of treaties and politics, Miriam Rose, shared the concept of quiet meditation, an Indigenous practice that her people use to find out who they really are, their purpose, and where they are going.
Obviously none of our politicians took much notice.


Anzac Oval: Minister won’t rule out compulsory acquisition
Mr McCarthy: “People should be reminded that this is a national gallery, this is a national Indigenous art gallery, with national and international significance …” a new international hotel will be needed for the people flocking from “across the globe” to see the gallery …
How can you talk of a national Aboriginal art gallery?
You should be aware that Aborigines for cultural reasons do not want the gallery on Anzac Oval!
The cultural centre was their idea in the first place, and you should respect their culture or YOUR gallery is plain and simple bullshit (excuse my French).
A new international hotel? Where? Melanka site? Which deal have you already made with an international foreign company?
Majority of us have friends and relatives overseas; some in the arts; with the help of Facebook, Twitter etc … the words will go around that Alice Springs does not respect Aboriginal culture, have contempt for the elders and custodians and this gallery is a money making exercise for SOME!


Gallery at Anzac: Council has no position, says Deputy Mayor
Bravo Eli, my comment on gutless candidates does not apply to you. And let other councillors show true colour!


Anzac Precinct: govt declines to play ball, confusion reigns
Maybe Janet, but what about the charade, pretending to consult?
What is underlying in this? Mates having already a contract? Promises being made to big companies?
Let the government come clean on the subject.
All I know for certain that next elections, be it government or council, I will not go to the polling boots. I prefer pay the fines rather to vote for gutless candidates.
“When politicians make promises, they create a rod for their own backs. They create a moral obligation to keep them, but that obligation does not obliterate or override their prior and remaining moral obligation to act in the best interests of their constituents and the country as a whole. If a promise they have foolishly made conflicts with that moral duty, they should break their promise.”

Louise: My thoughts exactly from day one.
The museum in the Mall is already selling toys and books which have no relation to the site.
It is normal, money must be made like all other tourist attractions have done, with the exception of the Reptiles Center.
