Comment on Getting youth issues into FOCAS by Phil Walcott.

Congratulations to all those actively involved in the FOCAS project. This is a prime example of how commUNITY works for the betterment of all those “in the village”.
Attitudinal shift has been what’s required for ages. Those of us who love this town and want it to prosper long into the future are dedicated to finding positive ways to create those possibilities.
Volunteers who help make it happen are vital to its progress. There are so many good people in Alice Springs who can help to models what a progressive and productive community looks like. Modeling and mentoring are imperative ingredients.
Remember … it all begins in the belly. Strong babies become strong kids, adolescents and adults. We are all responsible for contributing to our own and others well-being in the community.
We are a multi-cultural collective so let’s each contribute the knowledge, wisdom and strengths of our respective cultures into continuing the growth of our town and region.
Invest your time in making positive contributions to positive solutions. We’ll all be better for your contributions.

Jacinta Price: 4 year commitment lasted 18 months
Prediction: If Jacinta is not successful in winning Lingiari in four weeks and Josh Burgoyne doesn’t win the second Senate seat (which won’t happen because the Senate roles are ‘fixed’ at one CLP: one NTALP), they’ll both contest the August 2020 NT Legislative Assembly in Braitling (Jacinta) and Araluen (Josh).

First Aboriginal doctor: Gordon Briscoe AO, BA (Hist), MA, PhD
A terrific read … great acknowledgement of a man who looks like having significantly contributed to many generations of Aboriginal people, both locally and around the country.
Always good to learn of such accomplishments from those of us who had a difficult beginning.
Happily shared on some social media. Thanks for being, Gordon.

Pretty obvious this is a blatant political move by the Feds. They back their own team in SA to the detriment of the opposition team in the NT.
