Comment on Council millions for cradle to grave welfare schemes by Alex Nelson.

@ Peter (Posted October 22, 2016 at 7:09 am)
Your comments about the Ti Tree area are not dissimilar to what I was told when campaigning there during the NT election campaign of October 1990.
I was one of two CLP candidates, the other was Pastor Eric Panunka who resided at Pmara Jutunta at the time.
What I learned, especially from the Health Clinic at Ti Tree, left me profoundly disturbed and I took notes with a view to passing this on to the NT Government after the elections.
However, there was no debriefing after the elections were over, and indeed not the slightest interest from government about anything I had picked up during the course of the campaign.
The objective of the Party was simply to retain office, which was achieved by winning the electorates of the major urban centres.
There never was any real concern about what happens in rural and remote regional areas.

‘Catastrophic’ drop in construction work

Alice to get first Aboriginal owned earth ground station
If I recall correctly, the Geoscience Australia Antenna commenced operation as a Landsat receiving station in 1979, so this year marks its 40th anniversary.
Our family was living at the CSIRO residence by Heath Road at the time, now the Centre for Appropriate Technology.
There was one funny occasion when my brother was wandering around in the paddock nearby the new facility, and wherever he went the antenna would swing around and point towards him.
I think he got a bit spooked by it but it was the technical officers in the adjoining demountable lab that were just having a bit of fun.
