Comment on Lambley: Another government backflip? by Karen.

Yea, my comment was “What Tha” when I heard about the turf club, I thought NT was broke, then I thought there must be a personal reason for such a ridiculous spend of money.

Blackout: Managers must go, says union source
I had to go on POW facebook site to get updates, thank God for our little generator, at least our fridge / freezer, fan and TV were on, cooked dinner in the gas webber and have plenty of dolphin torches and candles on hand. We had no power for 7.5 hours.

Old visitors centre trashed
It’s well known by every one that the police are powerless because nothing happens to these youths, they know who they are. We need to make the parents accountable for their children’s actions.

Private $25m residential project for health staff
Yes, Sitzler did up and leave Alice after the new court house was built on their land. Look at the long term rent they are also getting from that. [That’s OK] so long as the locals do get the work.
At the moment there are big jobs being done below the Berrimah line by Darwin business and taking it away from local business. We don’t go up there and step on their toes! And these are NT Government tenders.

Police gets street parking, cops’ private cars in compound
I don’t agree with this new parking line up. I think its very rude and arrogant of Town Council and police to have this to themselves.
It’s hard enough to get a park close by especially when the underground car park at Alice Plaza lowered their height. The council needs to address this issue.

Another great river tree goes up in flames
Quite a few years ago a fire was deliberately lit (eastern end, the culprit was caught) along Ross River and burned its way towards the rear of the race course.
Most of the large old gums were destroyed but were also homes to our beautiful black cockies – for months after on dusk you could hear the stress when they came to their trees and were still confused as nesting sites were gone.
It’s something I will never forget, eventually they moved on but I miss them when they had their trees, their carry ons for the best spot until they settled for the night.
