Uranium mining would help to save Alice: Businessmen
This may sound stupid, but just think about it. To stimulate this town, what we need is a brewery.
It will require to be built, it will need builders, plumbers, electricians, continuance of workers to run it and the list goes on.
It would be an industry that would stay.
We have the water, transport, airport to support such and industry. The ongoing possibilities would be endless.
It may even solve the work for the dole issue and teach some people how it is made and may even take some pride in it.
The byproduct could then be given to the station owners for cattle feed, which would solve some of the drought issues.
It would mean profit for the town, giving it the much needed funding it requires for upgrades.
It is a perfect industry for Alice Springs. It does not have to be an enormous brewery. It could be run by share holders of the town. It would be a massive asset for the town.

To walk together and be heard, the Indigenous need to start taking some pride in themselves, taking responsibility and stop blaming everyone else. Show some pride in yourselves and you will soon earn the respect that you so much desire.
Indigenous living in remote areas can do a lot for themselves, by generating income from themselves, e.g. working their land like the white man.

Lambley, Gunner slugging it out
Ms Lambley was quite correct in what she said, that the Budget was impressive and mature.
We do not need any more funds spent on Alice Springs. Let’s stop being ostriches, pull our heads out of the sand and use what we have got.
We have everything.
We need to stop the spending, not only here in Alice but in the whole NT and start reining our debt in. The NT has had it too good for to long.
The Indigenous need to stop winghing and start working together with white man. Do the Indigenous need to work for the dole, if not why not!

Court placing itself above the community?
The Indigenous do not have to be tried by white man’s law, they can be tried by their own people, but choose ours, as apparently the sentence is less severe.
On the other hand, they better start learning not to break white man’s laws.

Making the CBD vibrant, again: Detail, please.
Oops, forgot to mention about the greedy landlords. Maybe they can pull their heads in with the rents.
