Comment on Bill Espie: Police hero from Alice Springs by Inspiration.

What a great story, Father Smith did a lot for the local Indigenous people here in the Alice.
My brother was one who went to Adelaide, Peter Tilmouth.
All the boys taken, all became great mates.
The Espie family was well respected here in the Alice and what an honour to have this man Bill Espie recognised, letting others know of his achievements. A story worth mentioning.

Ken Hampton: From podium to pulpit
Great reading about these young men who left their families at home for a better chance of education, with the assistance of Father Smith and his wife. Keep it going.


Birth registrations Bill: How many genders are there?
At the time of birth the sex should be recorded on the birth certificate by the doctor / medical staff. How can a parent determine at the time of birth that their little girl is going to be a boy when she grows up or vice versa?
Get real NT Government, people can change it legally later, along with their name, let it be. Sheesh. Heard the song by Johnny Cash “A Boy named Sue”?


Code of conduct allegations ‘vexatious, frivolous’ – councillor
Keep up the good fight Jimmy, its what is needed in the Council, honesty and commitment to the people of Alice Springs. It is stressful and unwarranted, but proving it wrong is a feather in your cap.


‘Save Anzac Oval’ motion defeated
Very disappointed at this outcome. This won’t stop the vandalising of the area. The Mayor has to be kidding if he thinks this will be sending a great message to the youths of the town.
Nothing is stopping them, Mayor, and an art gallery is not going to make any difference.


Police want parents to stop youth crime
Well, suddenly it is being stated parents need to be responsible.
We have been saying this for a while now, whilst our homes have been broken into and people bashed, cars vandalised.
Make parents responsible. Find out who their parents or guardians are, if not local then send them all back to their communities and let the community elders deal with their behaviour.
We have the Masters Games coming up next month. Things need to be sorted by then, hopefully, but not likely. It is an embarrassment to our town what these lot are doing and getting away with.
