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: ‘Alice staring stagnation in the face’
I do find it a little concerning that Alice Springs News Online (ASNO) faithfully reports to us, without questioning the source of the story, that the big Brown family has somehow put a value of $250 million on its Whitegum project. For some years, Councillor Steve Brown attached a value of $150 million dollars to his Whitegums project. It is a mystery to see it reported that the value of the same project has jumped from $150 million to $250 million dollars. The Alice Springs economy has been flattish for at least the last six years. Could ASNO please ask the Browns how the value of the Brown’s Whitegums project has gone from $150 to $250 million during rather flattish economic times?
[ED – We are quoting Mr Brown. His number is in the phone book.]
