WEDNESDAY MAY 15 2019 OPINION 41 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Should hairdressers be allowed to serve alcohol? YES After a certain time, it should be fine in the afternoon. SALLY STROHMAYR, PARAP YES One or two is fine. BEN LEUNG, ZUCCOLI YES Its a personal choice. You can get champagne from florists down south. ROZ CLAYDON, BEES CREEK YES I cant see why not. MICHAEL OCONNOR, PARAP YES It could be a good way to help stimulate business. LISA BRADLEY, STUART PARK SPEAK UP Parap resident Maddie Harding is excited Uber Eats is coming to Darwin. Shes already figuring out how to use the app Picture: KERI MEGELUS Super snaps Uber eats! Pfft. Dial a durrie was way ahead of its time! Donovan Fantasia Down south It was normal to be offered a champagne or coffee at hair salons, which contributed to a pleasant, relaxing experience. Darwin Council should catch up with the times! Congratulations to Gary Strachan for a great initiative to attract people to the city! In contrast the Council thinks it will attract shoppers by increasing parking fees! After Labor win the election, Ill bet London to a brick that Shorten comes out with the same old rhetoric ... I cant deliver all our promised projects because the previous Govt lied about the state of the budget. The money is not there. Always an opposition strategy when they promise what they know they cant deliver. ADD It would appear the midnight copper cable crabbers are back in the rural area. They have allegedly nicked more phone cable on a predawn raid. Trevor Omg how many times have they said this it wont happen as to expensive to pipe. If they did imagine how much they would charge for the water. Please. Lockey McKee believe it when I see it. Lachlan Ross Great idea, Id love to know how theyre going to catch and store the volume of water this would require to be successful ... Tony Martin Arent they telling us that we face water shortages in Darwin ? Really! Claire Taylor Desalination plant in the Top End then run the pipeline south, with options for outlets along the way. Could also be considered for piping water to the head of the Murray Darling (in my opinion). James Green Yeah theyve had 6 years. Could have built it 3 times already. They are just too busy knifing each other, breaking promises, and telling lies. Get them in the bin on Saturday. Austin Pickering At the same time theyre announcing a water shortage for the Darwin region? Jono Black Pumping water can be very expensive. You need pumping stations at regular intervals which all have to be refuelled and maintained. In hot climates there is massive evaporation so pipelines are needed rather than open channels. Frank Catlin Be smarter to pipe east to QLD where more fertile soil and closer to larger markets making it more viable. Or south towards Perth. Or both. Stephen Harris txt the editor ON MANY THINGS Armed robbery has a mandatory sentence of five years. These three youths robbed a taxi driver in a threatening manner while carrying a shovel if thats not armed robbery what is and to all you civil libertarians out there what about the taxi drivers civil liberties. Mcgruder Jingili Charlie from Box Hill, Palmerston doesnt need another dog barking whiner. We have dogs to alert us to intruders. They bark. Please dont move to Palmerston. ON A CLP ELECTION IDEA THAT WOULD SEE WATER PUMPED FROM DARWIN TO ALICE SPRINGS Would help if it rained ... Paul Irving We are already running out of groundwater in the Darwin surrounds so how could this be viable. Pump the water from Kununurra instead. Nick Sayers Excellent idea. Should have been done 50 years ago. Brett Malouf Is this so they can frack along the way? Vinni Ciccone Every so often this simplistic notion surfaces. Northern freshwater does not just run out to sea uselessly, it creates salt/fresh balances which are critical to fisheries and marine habitats. Tony Graham world wide web news@ntnews.com.au ScoMos response to Australias horrific loss of landscape and wildlife is to cut green tape, that is reduce the already inadequate of environmental protection! Great! No wonder the NT Govt is broke, witnessing a H/Commission houses perfectly good fence being replaced with a brand new one... FFS. Ref Wulagi Re: Dan Murphys Is it nearly 2 years since the initial application Mr Gunner? Whats happening? Time sheet. So another CBD business wanting to do the right thing and being blocked by the DCC. I was going to do my part in providing work to local builders by some renovations to my residence, but my proposal got knocked on the head by the DCC, Govt. Development Consent Authority and their internal planners had no objections to my proposal and thought it had merit. NT taxpayers have the right to know the details regarding Don Dale money grab by ex-inmates. Unrealist Parap 0428 NTNEWS Vote wisely REGARDLESS of where your political loyalties lie, we are voting for people who will be able to broker the best deals for the NT in Canberra, so they need to have good negotiation skills, be able to sell and communicate in an intelligent and respectful manner with possibly people they do not like or a party they do not like and do it with great diplomacy. It is not a popularity contest or how much money you spend on campaigning material, but rather who is the most capable person for the job. Vote wisely. Carol Phayer, Darwin LETTER OF THE DAY
