Rest and Reflection

Welcome to the Rest and Reflection period of the year in the Alice Springs News Online. We’ll keep up with the major news but our focus, till the end of January, will be on comment pieces from thoughtful locals, celebrating our town’s strengths and proposing remedies for its weaknesses.

Keep your readers’ comments coming. We moderate them several times a day.

    Politically there is great “Sovereign Risk” in the Northern Territory. This is exampled in the “gallery” standoff by the NT Government.
    With the land “OWNERSHIP” … the CLC (lawyers) … and the incompetence of the Resources BUREAUCRACY (?intelligence?) … there is virtually no mining in the NT (compare WA and Qld) … NO GROUP or Company can stand up to 25+ years delay in funding mineral exploration and land access.
    LASSETERS REEF rediscovery is a case in point, where bureaucratic intransigence prevents mineral exploration and development of the FRONTIER TOWN of Alice Springs.
    The GALLERY will go the same usual way. The kiss of death has already been applied.
