Comment on Stop Easter footy carnival in Alice: Liddle by Original Centralian.

Good on you Michael Liddle. Coming from some-one who has football in their blood it takes a lot of guts to say these things about the sport you so love and grew up with.
Even though reports are that the footy carnival was a success and crowd behaviour was great, it has a very negative impact on the rest of the community for quite a while after the event.
Getting the carnival out into the communities is a must for the future years if it is to be a continued success.
And yes, you are so right about getting priorities right … can’t get up for work but can get up for socialising and sport!

Country, people, cultures come together to heal a sick man
It saddens me to read that Dave is going through a rough time. He has done so much for Central Australia. Such a lovely man.
Wow what a great report.
While reading it I felt I was right there. I even put my hand on my heart and reached towards the photo of Dave on the computer, tears flowing.
Very touching story. Stay strong Dave and family and I wish you all the best.

@ Lachlan: I assume that CAALAS were expecting a softer response for the Judge.
Sounds like Mr Borchers is “no more Mr Nice Guy”.
Wish it would rub off on some of the other Judges and politicians also.
Too many do-gooders making big noises.

Well done Greg Borchers. The community has had enough. Don’t back down please. Tough love is what is called for.

Pine Gap demonstrators provide real time images
The protesters who were arrested are all from interstate.
They must have nothing better to do than travel around the country protesting about anything and everything.
Get out of our town! You are not wanted here.

Dylan Voller’s mistreatment started in Alice Springs
It is alright for these “children” to hold our town to ransom, forcing the citizens of Alice Springs to lock themselves into their homes after the sun goes down every night.
These “children” are running amok, wreaking havoc throughout the whole town and now they have the do-gooders batting for them.
Those innocent faces you see are not innocent at all.
Don’t turn your back on them!
Do the crime, do the time!
The trouble is that these “children” are used to getting their own way and as soon as they are institutionalised they don’t like it!
Well, the people of Alice Springs don’t like being locked up every night in their own homes and not having a social life all!
