Comment on Gallery swap: Aborigines second in pecking order by Aranda.

For heaven’s sake. Why on earth would you place the gallery anywhere other than the Anzac Oval site?
South of The Gap, oh right – easy to commute to for tourists and town people then? It would become yet another white elephant and other failed project we can attribute to a lack of imagination.
For its economic success it needs to be near to the CBD, walking distance to cafes, restaurants, hotels and be easily accessible for potential employees to help run the place!
The project has potential to give an economic boost to the CBD where it is desperately needed.
While on one hand these “old minds” complain about the lack of economic activity in the town, shops closing etc, on the other they propose to put the gallery out in the sticks?
How does this make any sense?
There are no cultural considerations to the Anzac Oval site either, given that there are no sacred sites in the current planning area and if anything, provisions could be made as part of this project to better protect those that do exist nearby with weed management, rubbish collection etc.
And don’t give us the Anzac Oval Heritage Story. No-one gives a hoot who used to play footy on or use that oval in the 50s.
The fact is the future generations will benefit from good decision making now!

OK, so the grandmothers group again bring attention to the fact youth are ending up in detention.
What are they trying to achieve? Are they seeking behavioural change from our youth? Are they themselves heading up any programs or initiatives for youth to engage with?
These kids aren’t ending up in the clink for stealing lollies.
Agreed also with Davo. For one week a year, perhaps celebrate some positive achievements within the community … there are a few.


Price family were sole complainants against Cocking & Satour 
Props to Erwin and Kieran for your ongoing reporting on this story.
In the past anyone who dared speak against Jacinta and the Prices have been attacked or slandered, sent abusive texts or DMs online. Let’s hope other local and Territory media / radio outlets show some initiative and shed light on this as well, given they have been the Prices’ biggest fans.
Surely, those who have blindly followed Jacinta and her supposed “truth telling” can see things for what they are now. The Easter Bunny isn’t real people, sorry.
Unfortunately, Jacinta has thrived off this community’s desperation in seeking answers to long term social issues that exist in this region.
Jacinta and the Price trio (coz’ you never get just one) are NOT the answer.
She has been on the fast track to success merely because she is Indigenous but lacks education and experience in any of the matters she talks so openly about.
Supporters should have done their due diligence on this one.
The last thing we want to see is another spoilt, hypocritical, self serving politician who talks a big game yet delivers nothing. This region deserves better than that.


Jacinta Price’s bluster: parents not mentioned
Misleading her Facebook followers? This isn’t new!
Sorry “followers,” you’ve been misled the entire time!
Folly, Jacinta, nothing but folly!


Jacinta Price spits dummy
Re Alan: Naw, it sucks when you find out your hero ain’t all she’s cracked up to be, hey?


Jacinta Price spits dummy
Hello … where are all her blind supporters who profess she “speaks the truth”.
Send this through to The Australian, Herald Sun, Mark Latham, KAK etc.
Unfortunately Erwin, you are another in a long line who have been on the receiving end of her bully tactics.
Another dummy spit from someone who lacks maturity and clear thought processes, yet seeks fame, fortune and self promotion.
