Just a FYI from the Peter McLisky website:-

“The laser-cut rabbits that grabbed our attention come in either a rusted finish or can be powder coated and are available in either 600mm [2 feet] or 3 meters [10 feet] tall. They come with either a rectangular base or a solid “shadow” and prices range between AU$180 and AU$3,400.”

One wonders what the cost was to the NT Government for this sculpture. Surely something with an indigeneous theme or a combination of indigeneous and non-indigenous Alice Springs/Central Australian culture would have been more appropriate IMHO.

COVID-19 testing in Alice: It’s a secret
Justan FYI … Alice Springs and Central Australia:
Alice Springs Respiratory Clinic – phone 08 7999 6100 to book an appointment.
Central Clinic and Mall Medical can carry out testing.
You must phone to make an appointment. If you are very unwell you should go to the Alice Springs Hospital Emergency Department.
Central Australia Aboriginal Congress. You must phone ahead to make testing arrangements.
After testing:
It may take a few days for the test results to come back.
If you have serious symptoms, you will be kept in hospital and isolated from other patients to prevent the virus spreading.
If your doctor says you are well enough to go home while you wait for your test results, you should do all of the following:
Quarantine at home and do not attend work or school, do not share a room with anyone else in your household, wash your hands often with soap and water, cough and sneeze into your elbow, avoid cooking for or caring for other members of your household, wear the mask your doctor gives you if you can’t avoid close contact with other people.
If your test is positive the NT Centre for Disease Control will let you know next steps for isolation and treatment.
Appropriate supervision and support will be provided.

I posted a reply to a traffic violation on Facebook and got roasted.
No public transport in that area, we all did it, and a FFS.
As someone who lost a brother to a road accident 33 years ago as of 3rd July, and who is old enough to remember no seat belts, no baby capsules, no .05 these replies are so disturbing.
Road safety adverts don’t seem to be reaching those who need the messages the most.


Cops at bottle shops: expensive bluff?
Perhaps a correlation between costs of POSI and the costs associated with hospital admissions, law enforcement issues would clarify matters better.
And maybe a survey on who gets asked why, when, where in regard to liquour sales would answer the points brought up in this article.
Oh and while you are assessing all of the above, maybe morning and evening attendances at the local watering holes should be looked at, like who gets asked why they are drinking at 10am, why they are in these places everyday and night?
Perhaps then the POSI might make sense to those who believe it is a waste of time, resources and money.
