The freedom of the press still furnishes that check upon government which no constitution has ever been able to provide – Chicago Tribune.

Is there really a case for a roundabout at the Undoolya Road – Sturt Terrace intersection? And how much support is there for it from the residents of Eastside?
Mayor Damien Ryan is having his doubts.
Papers presented to councillors at last night's meeting revealed that only four replies had been received in response to council's 1500 invitations to comment.
Three of the four opposed this expenditure of $300,000 of taxpayers' money.
Mayor Ryan's thought that, together with views he had heard by callers to local radio, suggested that the people of Eastside did not seem to want this roundabout.
Council's Director of Technical Services, Greg Buxton, countered that non-response indicated "acceptance". KIERAN FINNANE reports.
