Comment on Alice vs The Rock, at a glance by Kathy.

All a big publicity stunt. Makes some do gooders feel good. You watch, with in a year or two, the Rock will be open to climb, but with another fee.
This is a joke and can be easily fixed. Customer service and face to face service would be a huge draw card for Alice Springs.
The Rock is so commercialised, and the service is something you would expect, but do not get for the price you pay for accommodation.
We travelled down in April and could not check in before 3:30pm and could not leave our luggage, so had to hang around the resort waiting.
After a long drive this is not acceptable.

Alice vs The Rock, at a glance
The heart of the Centre has been broken with big commercial industry like the big companies and government funding dominating the Alice.
No more face to face personalised service any more, but internet and communicating through Facebook and web sites for tours and accommodation.
This for booking is good, but some people like to communicate and ask those reassuring questions and little help they may need.
People not just money are the losers as are the small businesses in town that are feeling this very much.
As for Uncle Huck, this town now thrives on tourism and events that come to the Centre. Do not bite the hand that feeds you, mate.

Policing is still just a numbers game
If it was a murder, the police could get to the murderer. Why is the government not letting this also happen to offenders that continually endanger peoples lives by throwing stones at vehicles.
This has been happening for years, why do we not stop this?
Children, black, white or in-between, should all be responsible for this actions.
Parents of these kids should also be accountable for their loss of control of their kids and support the police in these matters that effect everyone in this town and its consequences.

Cannot the people responsible for the running of the park see what a draw the climb has always been in the past?
Well, the do gooders have got their way and the climb will be closed. But guess what.
Not too far in the future the climb will be opened again and this time besides paying for every person to enter the park, you will be required to pay to climb.


Gallery: no deal yet on land swap
Why is the NT Government demanding Alice Springs to have this gallery? Are they slow learners? The council chambers are on a prime site and a new building of less than 20 years.
Why would the council want the site taken from them and a prime real estate piece of town land given away?
