Comment on Hordes of kids rampage: 50 cars hit by Karen.

No, we don’t need Darwin police. All they did was pick on the law abiding citizens, revenue raising, didn’t solve much, us hard taxpaying workers were glad to see them go back to Darwin.
Bring in the army.
CLC and all the other Aboriginal agencies should be dealing with all the youths who come in from communities and the ones that live here on the funding they already receive.
I feel for our tourists. Enough is enough, oh and bring back police at liquor outlets. It’s out of control.

Government accused of unfair competition
Eva [Lawler] should be fully aware if Blatherskite park exceeds its limit. The park has a manager. Get a survey done on why caravaners etc like to stay there, not wait for a complaint.
She and her staff need to get out and about more often to see what’s happening around town.

Tree death and the challenge of heatwaves
Watch’n: I totally agree. Council needs to also take a serious look at how contractors are trimming trees below power lines. They are ugly and some large branches hang over roads. Would hate to see these come down on traffic

Tree death and the challenge of heatwaves
It’s a no brainer. In extreme heat like we have just experienced all trees should be watered more regularly.
I live rural and have lost five trees but realised that maybe these trees were not suited to extreme long heat and we have not had a decent rain (where I live) since November last year.
So I find I’m watering more trees – future planting I will do better research. It’s sad to lose trees.
