Comment on National Indigenous Gallery advisors: ‘Release full report’ by Charlie Carter.

Is that the Prof Helen Garnett, former VC of CDU?
If so, as I recall, she is a virologist.
What is her expertise in relation to this project?
She would also be Darwin based.
The mismanagement of the process has the stink of Darwin decisions imposed on Alice as it is.
I have previously written in support of the Melanka site, but with the further information on the vision and scope of the project, I see that the Melanka site is inadequate.
And so is the Anzac High? Hill? Oval? site.
The open space in the landscape near the Desert Park fits the bill, now that we know a bit more.
We need to know it all.

Is Adam Giles making a bid for top land council job?
Hal, David Ross started working at CLC in 1979.
He has been Director/CEO for 20 years.
I am not sure of his exact age, but it would seem that he is due for retirement.
Giles’ leadership and management abilities are on record for all to see with his brilliant success as Chief Minister of the NT.


Government-made dust bowl: What comes next
Mr Stubbin is no doubt from Darwin.
Perhaps no one has told him that we do not have a “rainy season” in the Centre?


Rain: Yesss!
Another 12mm yesterday. Over an inch in total. Certainly not drought breaking, but will green things up a bit.
By the way Alex, I think the Indian ocean dipole perhaps has more effect on Central Australia than El Nino, particularly with summer rain.


Rain: Yesss!
Measured 14mm in Chewings St.
Overflowed the gutters and swamped the garden.
Lovely to hear the thunder and rain.
And the petrichor!


Anzac Precinct: govt declines to play ball, confusion reigns
Erwin, at this point one has to ask “cui bono” (who benefits?)
It is hard to imagine that a Government would behave in such a pig-headed, stupid, financially irresponsible way (well, maybe not so hard).
So I have to ask, what don’t we know about their motives for this?
Surely it can’t be the nonsense of “rejuvenating the north end of the mall”.
What else is at play here?
