Rest in Peace, Japaljarri. You were an amazing man with an infectious smile, a great sense of humour and knowledge. You walked as a leader in two worlds.

Learn Arrernte language online
I would like to congratulate the ladies on this initiative.
What a great way to learn more about the local Arrernte language and people.


Warlpiri don’t want Zachary Rolfe murder trial to be in Darwin
Do the Arrente want the trial in Alice Springs? No one has asked them.
Should the whole trial be held at Yuendumu in Warlpiri country?
Should we transport independent judges and jurors to Yuendumu daily to have the trial independent but on country?
Just some thoughts.


Tree death and the challenge of heatwaves
Perhaps if people could recycle their grey water onto the trees and grass then less heat would be reflected and more trees saved. Make residents responsible for their verges would also assist.


Budget repair: Check out the cost of this load of rubbish
Erwin. Name and shame the people on the envelope. Address as well. I will go out load up the ute and return it to them.
It is the people who dumped it and if it is on Jay Creek could also be CLC problem. Not anyone else’s.


Move School of the Air to Anzac High building
Why foist this asbestos ridden, abused, vermin infested, disrespected, hell hole on a world iconic education and tourist facility?
The Anzac High School needs to be torn down. There are much more worthy sites for preservation and if the only thing that can be found to justify the retention of this eyesore is that it was once the home of the School of the Air then you are grasping at straws.
The school has adequate space. The school visitors’ centre needs lots more room.
To benefit the School of the Air build the gallery which will be a display gallery, not a commercial gallery.
Convert the oval space from recreational to passive green space and attract more tourists to Alice Springs and Central Australia who will spend money.
