COVID-19 news: Alice Springs woman diagnosed
So now it’s here! The health department had a duty to warn! Now let’s get the tent hospital ready, we’re going to need it. It will spread like wildfire through vulnerable populations who don’t have any resources to protect themselves.

Coronavirus strategies in the bush still a work in progress
It’s going to be a disaster for communities. Inadequate health facilities, tyranny of distance and lack of basic infection control knowledge, overcrowding in dwellings and lack of access to suggested supplies e.g. disinfectants and water, suggest a health tragedy of mammoth proportions if communities are not adequately protected and supported.


Curfew: What else could fix youth crime?
We need more youth workers to support the families and children and also more helpers in the classroom to keep children on task and help them to achieve their potential.
Reducing the number of classroom tutors in government schools is not helpful. Very shortsighted by funding bodies.


The elusive goal of deep shade in Alice
I also plant a lot of trees and water them at my own expense.
They provide a town with peace and beauty.
It’s not necessary to have the hot house surrounded by dirt here.
Start by planting a number of shade trees and water between 8 and 11 during the heat.
Cools everything down, de-stresses the house ambience, cleans the air, helps control the dust and keeps us all sane.


Town Council considers $50m art gallery options
Desert Park’s the spot I prefer after seeing the concept image.
The escarpment in the background, no houses, plenty of room for discreet parking.
The world will visit wherever it is built.


Claire Hockridge found dead
It is a free country and these things happen from time to time here in the Outback.
You can’t stop people heading out of town on a bush leisure trip.
However, I was hoping that every knowledge and skill resource available would be used to expedite a speedy rescue, and I included local Indigenous trackers on my wish list, once the car was located.
We will never know if the use of non-government trackers might have increased the chances of a less tragic end. It will be a sad Christmas.
