Item number one, thank you Bess Price for your courage …

Comment on MLA Bess Price on ‘the killing of our women, abuse of our kids’ by Leigh Childs.

Item number one, thank you Bess Price for your courage to bring this issue to the public’s attention, using the proper venue of the House of the People to put this on the public record.
Item number two, shame on you Delia Lawrie for insisting on a point of order to silence Ms Price. Shame on you.
You have proved that making a political point is more important to you than the content of an important speech of a democratically elected member.
I am speechless at your brazen insensitivity and it beautifully demonstrates Bess Prices point that “authority” turns a blind eye and does not want to know.
All strength to you and yours, Ms Price.

Oh my gawd, don’t tell me that that auto in the top photo is a 280SL Merc with the concave roof. My childhood dream car. Sigh. Do you know, Erwin?


ALP to ram through alcohol floor price: Lambley
I’m with you Hal. I have admired Robyn’s usual straight talk. But I also diverge at this point.
Robyn you may have well founded reservations about process but the alcohol crisis in Alice is not going to go away all by itself.
As Hal points out, Canada and other countries have had measurable reductions in alcohol abuse. Please check it out and by all means keep a good eye on the process.


Local government: A lot of action beyond the 3Rs
Fred and Hal: Do either of you have any knowledge or experience of the town of Broken Hill? Seems to me that this similar sized town; arid zone; declining mining industry; um, very blokey town … has been quite successful at reinventing itself as an arts hub and tourist town. What do you think?


Bush community learning centre to close
Erwin, any response from CLC, regarding supporting this organisation? Any hint of interest … any hint of caring what happens to this group of people. Any reason given why some pennies can’t be thrown their way? A n y t h i n g at all ?
