Kalua, we’re not on the East Coast anymore

 

Sometimes
I feel like Dorothy looking down at her little dog and saying, ‘Toto,
we’re not in Kansas anymore’. Except I’m saying to my little black cat,
‘Kalua, we’re not on the East Coast anymore’. With this past week’s
sunny days and warm dry winds I’ve several times thought myself to be
near the beach. I don’t know what it is exactly, the smell of sunscreen,
the fact that it’s miles away or the Buffle grass rustle like waves to
the shore.  Either way as pleasant as this has been it has also
induced a sort of panic at the thought of what am I going to do when
summer really does hit? I realised it was deadly necessary to try and
scope out swimming spots in Alice Springs.

life and that of his partner, Reuben Nadich, who shot his victim in the
back at Junction Waterhole on May 29 last year, was sentenced to six

provocation or reason.

Mr Nadich's "moral culpability" was equivalent to that for murder,
said Justice Judith Kelly in her sentencing remarks last Thursday. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
