Comment on Surfie takes shortcut through Alice, stays, starts bus empire by Anne Mosey.

That mate was Peter Griffin, who came to Alice to build a house on the ridge at Ilparpa for Naomi Sharp, then-manager / trainer of Hermannsburg Potters. Pete then stayed building for 20 years in Alice, and is now back surfing in Byron Bay.

Curfew: What else could fix youth crime?
I seem to remember Adam Giles’ government defunding the Alice Springs Youth Service in a very short-sighted move.
It was based in the Mall near NAB, and coordinated a range of evening and night services for a large number of young people in the CBD.
It was a very effective and popular service.

Flair, imagination, vitality: Watch This Space in 2017
Wonderful to see Elliat and her great work and energy being recognised. And the new WTS and all the work that has gone into it and will be for next year.
Also a great write-up from Kieran whose contributions for so many years have kept WTS in the public eye.
Best wishes for 2018 and I really look forward to seeing some show next year.
