Inspirational; exactly what the boring Mall needs all the time, not just once a year!
Congratulations to the organisers of Alice Springs Desert Festival.
Businesses, take note, rather than putting down your grills at 3pm you could ALL participate in a more user friendly atmosphere. AS Town Council could become more community spirited (more than Christmas and the night markets) cooperating more with buskers, street cafes and street youth, including skateboarders, to make it easier, not harder. Just saying …

Town under pressure from visitor boom
More empty words from Councillor Banks.
Why doesn’t she put her effort into getting Ilparpa footpath finished instead of putting up stupid motions which unnecessarily delayed that project?
In fact she has stopped work continuing since March this year.
Prior to that, the lads were doing a stirling job.
There are no sacred sites impeding this pathway apart from the trees which have previously been reported on by AAPA to allow for the optic fibre cable along Ilparpa Road.
Rightly, the lads have left all other corkwoods etc standing. No trees have been removed.
RESOLUTION: I move that council stop bullshitting around and resume the job immediately.


Now you see it, now you don’t
If you are interested and want to know what’s going on then I suggest you have your say at the next Ilparpa Claypans Lovers Meetings first Saturday of every month.
So next meet is June 3 from 10-11 am Gazebo Table, Bean Tree Cafe, Olive Pink Botanical Gardens. The group have also put out a users’ survey. No names of coordinators at all.


CAAMA radio: questions on Hampton appointment
In the interests of Aboriginalising CAAMA, whatever that means … why is the Deputy CEO non Aboriginal? Because you are married to Aboriginal, does not make you eligible does it?
Sorry, I’m a bit confused, CAAMA Board. The whole dismissal / recruitment process seems very hypocritical, in fact racist to me. Please explain.


Salt mine: Alice needs to grasp a major opportunity
I am led to believe this is on Aboriginal land and royalties will be paid.
If so, why should the taxpayer foot the bill? I am sure CLC and Centrecorp have taken oodles of money out of this now sorry little town. Think again, Councillor Brown.


Shock resignation as radio station ‘Aboriginalises’
GMan your professional attitude, your dedication and your services to countrymen will be missed.
CAAMA Board – hang your head in shame.
