Bruce, some people would sell their own mother if there was a buck in it.
Many of these decisions, with I fear worse to come, both Territory and Federal, are being made for budget bottom lines at the expense of long term national needs. It’s the consequence of governments being in heavy structural deficit.

Hall of Fame has to pay for manager the government appointed
Soy Sauce Sally and her mob will bring us all down.
Time for a good ol’ fashioned tar and feathering. Can I sell tickets?


Despite clear leads, no-one was punished for making this mess
Our government agencies would rather harass the Road Transport Hall of Fame out of town than bring these cockroaches and maggots to heel. Yes Chris, cockroaches like the dark.


Soy sauce now only from a bottlo
Fantastic news! This could prove the first win for our Liquor Commission. We can all sleep soundly knowing that no one intoxicated by soy sauce will be invading our homes and running amok.


Why the NT Govt sacked the volunteers managing an icon
None of this makes much sense.
It seems that a very broke government that cannot manage its own affairs is determined to take down a Territory and Alice icon with them.
If in five years the town still has the Hall of Fame I will be surprised.


Heat rises on cooling plan
Look hard enough and it’s possible to find a report opposing any project.
I believe the Mayor’s heat mitigation deserves a trial. Bath Street is as good as anywhere, planted not too close to corners.
The “clear zone” is an issue but I wonder if it is a serious issue in the 40kph zoning area.
Choose the right native species like kurrajongs that set deep roots and monitor road damage.
Surely trees planted on the curb also risk road damage but we do proceed in that direction already.
Perhaps citizens may wish to adopt a local tree and nurture it through the first few years.
Expensive irrigation shouldn’t be necessary with council attention.
Sadly school kids adopting trees and median strips probably shouldn’t mix.
