Comment on Second Barkly child tragedy highlights need for urgent action by Evelyne Roullet.

Phil you said: “The majority of the NT’s problems whether black or white are based on alcohol.” Alcohol only exposes the true reality of how many are suffering in our country, especially in the NT.
People use drugs and alcohol for many reasons – to relax, have fun, socialise, cope with problems, escape life or dull emotional, physical pain.
A drunk who has self esteem will be happy, stupid, but not violent.
In many cases, self-esteem and domestic violence go hand in hand.
The less in control an offender feels, the more they want to hurt others, and domestic violence offenders tend to prey on women who have low self-esteem, realising that the victim will want and need them no matter what they do.
Of course, using substances to cope doesn’t make problems go away, and can make them worse or add new problems to the mix as we can witness in Alice Springs.

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.

Travelers around the world go to specific places for their attractions / landmarks.
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.
