Comment on Adorned and adored by Deborah Rock.

Thanks Kieran for the article and especially for posting that video of highlights. Was sorry to have missed the evening (bit of a date clash) but very grateful to have caught a bit of now it through you.
Also, I never cease to be amazed at the incredible talent in this town. Well done to all who have nurtured this event along since its inception and to those (designers, models, crew and organisers) who made this year’s Wearable Arts such a fabulous success.

Councillor Booth director of new Alice escort agency
If the information in this article is correct, Booth MUST step down immediately from Town Council.
Not being a resident is sufficient reason for this, but is not the only reason.
Based on his business activities, he is not of suitable character to be a leader of our town. The people of Alice Springs have been misled about his personal values.

Council suspends its collection scheme and activists ‘disable’ Coca Cola machines as NT loses container deposit court case
The companies involved all have corporate websites which provide contact details if you wish to make a complaint. If you’re thinking of adjusting your personal shopping habits, the websites also give a full range of their products.
I’ve written to them.
By the way, an unusual pleasure to see all comments on an Alice Springs News article in agreement!

LETTER: Family, friends knew murdered woman was being abused
I commend the Deputy Chief Minister for commenting on this topic. Particularly as we’ve heard nothing from the Minister for Women’s Policy.
Domestic violence is abominable and is far too common in the NT.
If the CLP feels as strongly about this as do other members of the community, let’s see some leadership on the issue and useful action. Let’s see something other than criticising previous governments, de-funding of Domestic Violence services and reopening access to alcohol for domestic violence offenders.
I acknowledge your heartfelt comments Robyn, but actions speak louder than words.

Steve Brown survives fall, escapes council censure
Perhaps just poorly chosen words, but as an elected official, his job is to work on behalf of everyone in Alice Springs, not just the people who voted for him. It is what we expect from all our representatives, at any level of government.

Why don’t we do political satire in Alice?
We don’t do political satire in Alice because we don’t need to. We have a new government comprised of intelligent, open minded individuals with an outstanding grasp of the issues that affect us all and the right solutions to take us forward.
We cannot want for more.
