Comment on Gunner re-opens the Rivers of Grog floodgates by Ginnia.

I agree with this letter. We now have humbugging back in force and stepping around drunks again.
The council lawns had police doing their best the other day in the face of a very loud drunk swearing his head off at the top of his lungs etc.
No sooner had they left than a woman set herself down to wail drunkenly at the top of her voice taking over to give the nice family of interstate visitors an education in what it is like to live here.
I think they were a bit shocked.

Government accused of unfair competition
This argument has been discussed at VERY great length around Australia over the last few years.
There are many travellers who do not wish to pay the “bells and whistles” prices at caravan parks with all the extras such as pools etc.
These travellers will pretty much ignore towns that do not provide the cheaper options and the majority of businesses suffer because of a couple of caravan park owners!
Towns that provide the cheaper camping options benefit by having visitors stay, often for many days at a time, and spending money in the town.
For the benefit of the majority of businesses let’s keep the cheaper option going at the show grounds.


Anzac Oval will be site for gallery: Gunner
Why is it that long time residents’ opinions are totaly ignored by the “we’re here to make a quick buck before we move somewhere else” crowd?
Things we don’t want changed are changed by them and then they bugger off somewhere else, leaving us with their mess and loss of town character.


Allegations, no proof on bottlo shut-down
I am sick to death of grog shops in supermarkets and all that entails!
Why can’t grog shops be kept in completely seperate areas of town so we can do our shopping in peace.
The proliferation of grog shops is ridiculous in a town of this size.


Gallery at Anzac consult: council hurries to meet govt deadline
There is space, south of The Gap, to build a fantastic cultural centre and art gallery in a highly visable area near the college.
Instead the government is absolutely determined to squash the centre into a less attactive area, remove much needed car parking, and spend millions on building new sports fields.
Of course the government will not do any thing about replacing the car parking the residents this town council represent need to access the church, senior citizens, youth centre etc.
All round this project will be a disgusting waste of public money, a poorly designed project that could have been so much better.


Will gas royalties save the NT? Read the fine print.
Also remember, all gas wells eventually deteriate and fail. With the mining industry’s record of just leaving a mess behind when they abandon a mine, can the NT actually afford to all but give our gas away?
