Comment on Little kids have the key to our future by Baron Von Knowitall.

If it were my family in this position, as a parent I would take more interest in the development / health of my child and not just expect someone else to fix it.
One key to this is ensuring kids get the best education, and at least turning up to school every day.
Parents can be proactive and demand this of their children.
It seems obvious that neglected children will always be disadvantaged.
I’m all for assisting the disadvantaged but if you really want to fix the problem we need parents to take responsibility and they must be pushing a positive attitude.
Remember, negativity breeds negativity.

Spot on Ray.


Government millions spent outside tender process
While I wouldn’t have a clue about this kind of stuff, I would wager just about all builders in this town who could do this kind of work all live in nice big house and own 80k cars.
Show me a builder that isn’t well off and I’ll show you a builder who doesn’t live in Alice Springs.


Aggravated assault in Alice hospital
Erwin, the answer to that question is yes, some can, but there is also a large amount who cannot.
But it’s easier for some to ignore facts and results we see in the media and keep forking out barrels of money just so a minority don’t call them names for trying to save a dying culture from its own hands.
People might start mislabelling your actions as stolen generation, instead of what they should be called saving generations.


Young thugs assault two men for cigarettes
Didn’t these two know there was a curfew for law-abiding citizens, they aren’t allowed out of their home after 9pm.
Oh, that’s right, it’s because its unwritten, just known.


Crims terrorise Gillen, three cops attacked
I don’t envy the police in Alice. It must be so disheartening to know that whatever they do these criminals will be back on the streets the next day with a slap on the wrist for them to do it again.
Simply go to your court case and mention your upbringing and offer a lawyer drafted apology and the judge will take pity and release you with stern words.
As we can see they are training their kids to follow in their footsteps, nice to know they will be properly training and hardened to crime by the time they are teenagers.
