Do all the people who don’t want the art gallery …

Comment on National Aboriginal art gallery in the wide open spaces? by James T Smerk.

Do all the people who don’t want the art gallery understand they are contributing to the downfall of this town?
The Government is clearly only going to do it at ANZAC oval and nowhere else, so if it doesn’t happen our town loses a bit opportunity to celebrate our country’s people.
The CBD is obviously where the action is and they want people to walk around town and spend money at the same time, which is good.
Rugby people – you get a new oval and facilities, win win.
Hippies – you keep the grass area where it is and it will look nicer.
Old people – the town needs to change to better itself.
People WHY are arguing just because they want the government to do something about crime first. They won’t, and the elders of town don’t care either, so that will never happen.
Crims – you will get more stuff to break.

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!
