Comment on Uproar over welfare houses by James T Smerk.

This is the same for many houses around Alice, not just renal houses. I wish they would open one up in the golf course area, it would be good to see the posh part of town live like the rest of us.

Uproar over welfare houses
Interested, Rippa! I thought they dealt with this issue ages ago when they build the accommodation out by the show grounds, and then again with the dozen new houses just before the race course.
Maybe they could look at the issue of why this is a growing requirement and address the cause and not the effect.
I understand family need to be close at these times but if we can stop or slow these issues down it’s got to be good for everyone involved.
I think the government seem to be more interested in working reactively and not proactively.

Fighting “for what’s right” would include having a deterrent for not breaking the law, and repercussions for breaking the law!
Not fixing this problem won’t fix anything. Allowing kids to not be punished for crimes is inviting the development of serious offending adults, with no future for them and their families.
Maybe there should be more talk amongst parents and shaming when they don’t do what they should do.


Man charged with sex offence, boy with multiple thefts
In a small town this should be on the tips of everyone’s tongues. But no, just business as usual, and if anything a slow news day. Sad.

‘Catastrophic’ drop in construction work
And yet I still can’t get a tradie around for a quote for house upgrades, because they are too greedy for juicy Government works.
Rare to find a tradie nowadays who doesn’t own multiple properties early on in their work life.
I chose the wrong career path obviously.


Drug charges as large amount of cash confiscated
I don’t see why the police don’t offer a small incentive for dob in a dealer. Give a $1000 cash payment for confirmed information and I’m sure some of these desperate druggies will dob in a dealer they don’t like.
I’m sure there are even people that aren’t druggies but are aware of some people that deal, easy money!
