Oh so, get rid of the AFL games? Great. Another sacrifice taken away for the benefit of others. Will the Show be next, lots come into town for that. Lot of trouble around after that too. Hmmm, what else. Police at pubs and supermarkets, limit on wine cask sizes. everyone suffers.
@ Local Reader: The Memo is not an Aboriginal Club, it is there for the whole town, just because it was opened up with Aboriginal money doesn’t mean it is Aboriginal only.
Didn’t hear all the fuss when the Memo was closed and the problem was at the Todd Tavern back bar and along the creek, or was that because the pub is owned by non indigenous people?

Stop Easter footy carnival in Alice: Liddle
Oh, so does that mean we have no AFL games here? Same thing – I love my AFL and look forward to the games played here by the professionals.
I admit a lot of community people come into town to watch the games, so do other people from other towns as far away as Darwin if their team is playing. So do we stop that as well?

Police gets street parking, cops’ private cars in compound
I agree, why should the police be given street parking when they have three car parking facilities adjacent to buildings within the same area. (The three buildings on the corner.)
Doesn’t look good driving down Parson Street, to see it packed with police vehicles when they have parking spaces within their buildings. Not much parking around the streets now for the common folk.

‘I shared my mother with the Aboriginal children’
Peter Tilmouth was my brother and at the time of his death he left behind three children.
Two lived in Andamooka with his wife and the eldest lived in Adelaide with her mum.
Peter went to the Technical High School in Adelaide, and once he graduated he got a job in Woomera before moving on to Andamooka to take up mining.
