Comment on Bonanni quits: Mum’s illness needs my full time care. by Evelyne Roullet.

Maybe with the new councillors election coming up, we should ask if they really intend to represent the rates-payers, or if they will be sheep following the “leaders” without consulting Alice’s residents.
We had no consultation for the Diano oval 400m track, it was a done deal, so I was lied to by the council representative when I was told in writing that it was just a project on the drawing board with nothing concrete yet.
Without the rates payers, Alice will not exists however we are treated with contempt. Are we under a democratic system or under a dictatorship?

Gunner again cites COVID for his failing to answer questions
All politicians during interviews, especially before elections, should do it hooked up to a lie detector (polygraph).
They are not 100% accurate but better than nothing.

Merrilyn Spencer, with due respect for your opinion, the tourists will not come to Alice only for an art gallery and cultural center.
We must offer more than that, especially when crime is rising.
The Aboriginal collection at the Vatican Museum is one of the most important outside Australia and it is the most visited at the Vatican Museum.
The Vatican Museum Indigenous collection has some of the earliest known documentations of Australian Indigenous culture.
The collection has been tallied for the first time in a recently released catalogue by Prof Mick Dodson, Katherine Aigner (editor), Senator Pat Dodson (contributing author), Craig Richie (CEO AIATSIS), Fr Nicola Mapelli (Director, Anima Mundi).
In France Quai Branly Museum has ensured Aboriginal art will have a permanent and high-profile presence in Paris by commissioning Lena Nyadby, one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists, to produce a 700-square-metre work to be displayed on a section of its roof.
There are many like those all across the world, so, why come to Alice only for an art gallery?
The Taking Control of our Heritage – Indigenous Cultural Heritage Conference will provide the first opportunity for Traditional Owners and their allies to meet, discuss, and develop programs, strategies and ideas to take control of their cultural heritage in Australia. Tuesday 24th November – Thursday 26th November 2020, Melbourne, Victoria.
Please take note of “Traditional Owners to take control of their Cultural Heritage” not once again controlled by arrogant white fellows like Moss and Wakefield.
So we should wait to see the outcomes before wasting money and destroy more of Alice Springs.


Wakefield ready for fight: affirms intention to acquire oval
@ Alice resident: You forgot the The Alice Springs Gen­er­al Ceme­tery (Memo­r­i­al) adja­cent to the Avi­a­tion Muse­um.
The graves of Albert Namatji­ra (Abo­rig­i­nal painter from Her­manns­burg), Harold Las­seter (who claimed to have found an as-yet undis­cov­ered 7‑mile-long gold reef in Cen­tral Aus­tralia) and anthro­pol­o­gist Olive Pink, who, eccen­tric to the last, is buried fac­ing the oppo­site direc­tion to every­body else.
The Gen­er­al Ceme­tery is her­itage list­ed.


New Normal recipe from the too hard basket
Alice Springs in the middle of the centre of Australia is a land of opportunities.
All those ideas / projects and more are quite feasible (let the Chinese come in and they will do it in no time!)
The crime depends on some achievements bringing hope for the future. But to achieve we need leaders with vision, stamina and guts. Leaders capable to get out of the box they are in and not scared to rock the boat.


Standoff over Anzac Oval for gallery crescendoes
A dictator is a political leader who possesses absolute power. Following is a comprehensive, up-to-date list of the current world dictators and authoritarian regimes.
As of today, there are 50 known dictatorships in the world: 19 in Sub-Saharan Africa, 12 in the Middle East and North Africa, 8 in Asia-Pacific, 7 in Eurasia, 3 in Americas, 1 in Europe.
Soon one will be added to the list making it 51 with the dictator of the NT. Minister Wakefield and Minister Lauren Moss showing arrogance and total disdain for the people.
If they manage to acquire the oval will the project be finished before the next Northern Territory general election, which is scheduled for 22 August 2020?
