Comment on When online shopping could be a life saver by David.

I went shopping again today, reluctantly at Coles. None are allowing home delivery service which I would rather have.
I am a home carer and I do not want to put my elderly mother at risk every time I have to shop but I can’t get what I need every day.
I also notice a hike in prices, totally unacceptable since fuel prices have dropped. Price gouging is rampant.
I put my mother’s health at risk going into shops with people not maintaining social distancing. Wake up people, it’s there to protect you!
I hate shopping these days because of this and major chain supermarkets don’t help by not offering a delivery service!

COVID-19 ‘ignorance’ as large crowd attacks police
I said it before. NT Police could not control the violence and social breakdown that’s going on in this town even before COVID-19 and it will only get worse. Bring in the army now. As it will only become worse.

Big lay-offs at Lasseter complex
Casual staff are always first to go. No wonder they are not loyal to a employer always.
The Casino does not need to shut down. People need to be responsible for their own actions. Aboriginals included. But if the Casino expects loyalty from the locals then they need to support them.
Lately they have trimmed down the rewards program so much it’s not worth going and payouts seem a lot worse.
Look after your locals and they will look after you. This applies to the hotel area of the complex also.

Record NT debt: Gunner mum on collateral
Well all I can say is I didn’t vote that Chief Minister in.
We need another art gallery like a hole in the head.
Don’t need fracking.
And he has no real solution to the crime problem here in Alice.
As long as he’s north of the Berrimah Line no one cares down this way.
Don’t blame the Federal government for your dismal performance.They have enough problems of their own. The sooner Gunner is out of power the better.

Anger with out-of-control kids: council needs to step up
What exactly do you propose the council do? How will they enforce it? Even the police are overstretched now. It is tine to bring in the army.
Unfortunately these kids are destroying our town.
It does not mean all are bad … but a fair number.
Army can do a curfew and is the only alternative. We are no longer the lucky country. Too much violence, robberies, drugs, racial division.
And the manby pamby do gooders.

Curfew: sixth time lucky for Cr Melky?
Here we go again. How do you propose the police enforce this curfew if they haven’t got the resources.
Already crime is rampant in this town.
Another businesses windows smashed this morning. They can’t do it now, so won’t be able to enforce this curfew.
No one else could do it. As for the Art Gallery, I’m totally against another here. Anyway and if any of the muppets in council or government ever listen … the traditional Aborigines want it SOUTH OF THE GAP.
