Comment on A stabbing that didn’t happen? by David Chewings.

@3 John Childs Posted April 24, 2012 at 6:46pm. I am impressed that John Childs has written about your article titled “A stabbing that didn’t happen,” Alice Springs News April 19, 2012.
John is a local and I for one wish he would express his concerns more often.
Darwin will eventually respond to the many questions raised by this report of yours and John’s response.
This serious matter of apparently, a mother and her three children being attacked on April 7 in the Target carpark has been largely ignored by other media and those in government.
I must ask of Superintendent Jo Foley was this matter not serious enough to warrant your immediate professional and constabulary response.
I imagine the new council is dreading the moment that this goes viral.
Regards, David Chewings.

A star on British TV, ignored by Tourism NT
Well said Terri M of Arizona. The tourism commission knows how bad they are and that has been the subject of previous ASNO reports. They operate in the same myopic manner which came from another age and which was in denial of anything indigenous. The road ahead will not be easy and will require respect for all players and exceptional leadership.

Council wants more time to respond to water plan
This is a very grave issue for Central Australia. The situation at Mataranka involving Tina McFarlane and her family shows just how quickly things can turn. I would advise all Alice Springs people to watch this space and take note of those who know about water for example, Rod Cramer.


Water – who is advising whom on what?
This is a commendable report Erwin. David Chewings.
