Comment on Minister Lawler determined to demolish Anzac High by James T Smerk.

It might be old but it’s just not something that would attract tourist or many local visitors throughout the year if it was ‘done up’.
Sorry if it offends but I think you will find the people wanting to keep it are people that attended the school or had something to do with it and are trying to hold on to their memories.

Government millions spent outside tender process
While I wouldn’t have a clue about this kind of stuff, I would wager just about all builders in this town who could do this kind of work all live in nice big house and own 80k cars.

Crims terrorise Gillen, three cops attacked
I don’t envy the police in Alice. It must be so disheartening to know that whatever they do these criminals will be back on the streets the next day with a slap on the wrist for them to do it again.
Simply go to your court case and mention your upbringing and offer a lawyer drafted apology and the judge will take pity and release you with stern words.
As we can see they are training their kids to follow in their footsteps, nice to know they will be properly training and hardened to crime by the time they are teenagers.
