Comment on Questions raised about Alice kids in Don Dale during riot by Chris 2.

Any transfer to Don Dale “is done in consultation with the young person, their family and legal support team as well as youth outreach re-engagement officers and child protection practitioners. When a transfer does occur ongoing efforts are made to facilitate family access”.
That’s a lot of people paid by the taxpayer. Add to that criminal damage done, transport costs, family support, medical and so on and we have a taxpayer funded industry. Sadly, if it were performance based closure would be assured.

Miners are spreading myths, says environmentalist
Ermm. Interesting letter, Ken. Love to have a yarn with you one day.
In the meantime Councillor Jimmy who is taking a nice sum from the ratepayers purse to focus on the little issues in town might like to take a subsidised drive along Hayes Street, The Gap.
Perhaps then he may be able to tell me why I pay rates the same as a leafy suburb in Adelaide and yet endure an over-grown track that passes for a footpath, dead wood and rubbish that is potentially a fire hazard and an unacceptable mess and eyesore at the Gap Road end.
I don’t think there has been any real maintenance on Hayes Street in two years.
So forget the big issues Jimmy, do your job.

Advisors and bureaucrats should be named salaries and perks listed.
There should be a synopsis published, for public comment, of advice given to the inadequate politicians incapable of original thought.
Wouldn’t that be nice. We are the malcontents led by idiots taking advice from agenda driven morons. Merry Christmas.

Mr Gunner crowed he was the man that wanted to lead us to statehood.
Realistically he may be the man that takes us back to Federal control.
What a mess, three down and how many more to go.
Enjoy your hiking in the New Zealand alps Sir, keep the sat phone battery charged while Rome smoulders.


Taxi seized after taking liquor to dry area
Money money! Probably why you can wait for hours for a cab at around opening time and after three phone calls to ask where is the cab you are told “sorry not our fault the driver reported that you were not there”.
But I was there. Might of been compounded by the fact that I wanted to pay by card. Big mistake. Alice Taxis. Mmmm.


One house break-in, four cars stolen
“The 22-year-old man was charged with one count of aggravated assault and received bail.”
The last three words say it all!
