With the title Rediscovering the Alice, I was expecting a film unearthing some forgotten corner of the town’s past. I was in for a surprise and I expect most of the Heritage Festival audience were too. KIERAN FINNANE reports.

Stuart statue: should council give it back?

UPDATED February 12, 9.45am

 

It’s a gift that has come to haunt them and at least the executive seem to have had enough:  last night it recommended to town councillors that they give the John McDouall Stuart statue back to the Freemasons. KIERAN FINNANE reports on the latest in the four year long saga. Pictured: The statue being lowered into place for its temporary unveiling in 2010.

 

Council drags chain while horse bolts

 

The horse had bolted: while the Town Council was mulling over the issues and deciding to send a letter to the Minister, the Development Consent Authority approved, with conditions, two proposed telecommunications towers in Araluen. Councillor Jade Kudrenko, who has been trying to represent constituents’ views opposing the siting of the towers, last night expressed her frustration with council’s slowness while the DCA’s process had rolled on. KIERAN FINNANE reports from council’s committee meetings. Other issues: buskers in the mall • water waste and savings • asbestos in confidential • McDouall Stuart statue in no-man’s land.
