Trees on Melanka block no longer sacred?
I am sure that some idiot can think of a story about the trees, preferably while high on some drug, any drug will do and then someone can put a sign up and tourists can say ooh ahh and take photos. I spose that would be the closest that anything can come to happening on that bit of land.
Once was told by an old bloke that the oldest thing on that block was the buildings that were pulled down.

St Francis House: Excellence sought and achieved
Yes, Brian Butler had a wonderful father in James Henry Butler (deceased) who shared many stories and facts with me over the years regarding his wife (Brian’s mother) who he met in Darwin and the hurdles he faced from the authorities because he wanted to marry a full blood Aboriginal woman and the fact that he was most disturbed by misconceptions that Brian was of the “stolen generation”.
The last time I saw Brian was at his father’s house in Pt Augusta at around the time of his mother’s passing and I am yet to see a man with feature so much alike of his father’s.
