Comment on Another great river tree goes up in flames by Karen.

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.

I thought school term has started but why are there so many kids getting around through the day? I also heard that finding a truancy personal in town is difficult as they prefer to go out bush because of TA?
All Aboriginal organisations need to step up and the government need to investigate and make sure that all of these organisations are productive in their role in society. So many questions.
