For Ali, one of her joys yesterday was that her own natural mother, Mum Audrey, had lived to hear the apology. Audrey was removed from her Aboriginal family when she was four years old and taken to Koonibba Mission outside Ceduna. It was one of the removals made with "good intentions" for, as far as Ali has been able to find out, it was done to offer the bright child an education. She went on to become the first Aboriginal student at Concordia Lutheran College in Adelaide and later the first fully qualified Aboriginal nursing sister to work at Port Augusta Hospital. But she carried emotional scars from the removal that Ali implicates, together with social and religious pressure, in her surrendering, at 19 years of age, her baby, Ali, for adoption. Ali grew up as one of five adopted children in a loving but stern Lutheran farming family, where despite the kindness of her parents, she never felt she fully belonged. She knew of her Aboriginal heritage but, apart from one of her adopted brothers, she didn't know any Aboriginal people. As she grew older, being Aboriginal became a label that she wore and endured, for she and her brother copped the usual racism. She was often in trouble and became quite wild, eventually leaving home, entering a "mad relationship" and falling pregnant. At age 19 she also surrendered a child, her son, for adoption. "I was worn down into giving my son up.

Ali says the journey towards recovering the family she had lost - not only Audrey but a vast extended family as well as a niece whom she raised as a daughter - has only strengthened her on-going relationship with Frieda: "The healthy benefits didn't just happen for me and my Aboriginal family, they were also there for my adopted family." She believes her adoptive father would have been happy to see this day. After his death in 1997 she and Frieda found many newspaper clippings falling out of his books, about, among other issues, the affects of removal on Aboriginal children. He'd never talked to them about the subject; it was not then the sort of thing that got discussed in a farming community in the mid-north of South Australia, says Ali. Times have changed now. She and Frieda recently met an old school teacher of Ali's.

In Alice it was $1.59 on that day.

In the past week Minister Delia Lawrie has openly admitted to holding up, slowing or stopping land release in Alice in order to support land prices.
...
Alice is strangled, and in a very dangerous place. The deliberate strangling of a market to artificially inflate prices always leads to collapse. A strong market is brought about by strong growth, not by greedy market manipulations similar to insider trading, which quite frankly ought to be the subject of similar criminal charges. For Alice to protect itself from these manipulations it must have a town plan that sets out the structure of the town, along with an orderly land development and release strategy. This will give certainty to our future growth. Nothing assures the stability of a market more than a well set out, progressive, planned future. Town planning needs to be easily accessible to the public to which it applies and be open to the desires of its community; instead of being the bastion of cold aloof officialdom, it should exude an air of enthusiasm and cooperation welcoming investors and new ideas that adds to the development of our unique community, while protecting the investments of those already here. I believe the body responsible should be the town council. Alice finds itself in its present state because we have failed to take charge of our own destiny.

Sir,- My 12 year old son Raymond, who eventually wants to live in Alice Springs, is seeking a pen pal over the internet. Is there an astronomy group or school science club that he could e-mail and ask questions?

No, the reason given for the change was that the leader lived in Alice Springs and was therefore incapable of effectively running the party.
