Fire management inadequate to non-existent: ALEC
We needed to learn and listen to Peter Latz years ago, we need to respect the knowledge that Fiona has, before we burn out this country and it loses it charm. I’m believing climate change is real with record temperatures this summer in Central Australia breaking the records set in the great drought in the 60s.

Gallery should be all set to go
Kevin establishes a very solid case. I really think we need to move on or lose the potential for a major development project in Alice Springs that if developed properly has the potential to become a truly national and international asset.
Go for it Kevin and continue to urge the community to move on lest we lose the potential for literally hundreds of millions of dollars being invested into this community.
We will only get one chance and the government I’m sure is slowly losing patience. Preserve open space at the northern end of the Mall, create a national gallery that can link to the CBD and allow for the development and preservation of Aboriginal culture here in the heart of Central Australia along with developing 21st century facilitates for rugby that have been long sought after.
Alice Springs has stagnated for some time now and anti-social problems are continuing to impact on the welfare of the local community and the image of this town locally, nationally and internationally.
My comments may well upset some people however this town has stagnated for a long time and the changing dynamics are seriously impacting on this town with the consequence that many are not now wanting to come to Alice and many are leaving. We can’t ignore this fact … let’s wake up.

Hail stones usually don’t come that big
At home I had 84mm of rain mostly in one hour.
At my retail nursery I had over 40 tonnes of hail fall within the nursery.
Caught in the hail netting it is up to one metre deep and still there Saturday evening.
Haven’t seen hail like this since the 70s.

Alice Top 20 NTCET graduates all from St Phillip’s College
Hi Craig, I had one daughter who went to St Phillips in 2013 and was placed second in the Territory. In 2014 I had another daughter who went to Centralian Senior College (a public school – her choice) and was placed first in the Territory.
Centralian had three in the top 20 last year … I think this discounts your comments. All schools have their good and bad years re top ranking students. Cheers.

50 years devoted to each-other, and tourism
Congratulations Pat and Norma, you are truly part of the rich history of Alice Springs and Central Australia. Aboriginal people may no longer be cooking steaks on cut down 44 gallon drums but you Pat still cook an absolutely fantastic steak … congratulations
in anticipation to both Lyn and Ross.
