LETTER: Shire attacked over children's service, responds

The delivery of the Early Childhood education program by the MacDonnell Shire in the Ikuntji / Haasts Bluff community is appalling, says a former employee, Susannah Taylor. The shire responds that it delivers Early Childhood Education programs in nine communities "and due to the success of our programs has recently been awarded a tenth community".

Salvos find not just the usual suspects are in trouble

Falling on hard times in Alice Springs these days isn't exclusive to the usual suspects: a pregnancy or an accident can turn a two-income family into a single income one, and the town's exorbitant rents can tip that family into crisis.

"The poor can't buy a house here.
"It doesn't take much for repayments becoming too hard, or heating and power bills," says Captain Michael Johnson who with his wife Elizabeth, also a captain in the Salvation Army, heads up that stalwart aid organisation in The Centre.
They're gearing up for their annual doorknock on May 19 and 20, and are still looking for volunteers (call them on 8951 0200).
The Salvos in Alice will be spending more than $1m this year, as usual "way more"  than the doorknock yields, says Capt Johnson.
The local Salvos run two men's hostels which are "pretty well always full". ERWIN CHLANDA reports. Photo: Captains Michael and Elizabeth Johnson in the Salvos' Thrift Shop.
