Coober Pedy Council keen for grog crackdown


http://www.adelaidenow.com.au
The Coober Pedy Council is considering banning people who live in some areas from buying alcohol in the town.
It is one of several recommendations to curb Coober Pedy's alcohol-related problems.
Others include restricting the amount of wine that can be bought in a day, as well as requiring photo identification for all sales.
The Coober Pedy Council says it supports the list of recommendations from the liquor, licensing and gambling commissioner, who recently visited the town.
Mayor Steve Baines says the town has gained a reputation for being an easy place to get alcohol and is looking to stop antisocial behaviour from people visiting the town.
"There will be no sale of alcohol to a person who resides in a prescribed land and that's primarily Maralinga, Yalata, APY and any of the Northern Territory dry communities," he said.
"He's [the commissioner] proposing restrictions on takeaway opening hours from 11:00am in the morning to 8:00pm at night."
Councillor Baines says the community has wanted new restrictions after a rise in alcohol-fuelled problems last summer.
"I suppose to some extent Coober Pedy has been seen as the easy town to get takeaway grog," he said.
"That's caused us a few problems so basically we need to change that perception and we need to dry up the supply of takeaway alcohol to particularly transient people that are passing through or visiting town just to source alcohol."

Kevin Rudd’s first broken promise as new PM


FamilyVoice Australia
“On his second day as newly reconstituted Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd has broken his first promise,” FamilyVoice national president Dr David Phillips said today.
Six weeks ago Mr Rudd announced that he had changed his mind about the meaning of marriage and would now support “gay marriage” – but said he would not campaign on the issue.
To be precise, on 20 May 2013 Kevin Rudd said, on his own website: “For the record, I will not be taking any leadership role on this (same-sex marriage) issue nationally.” He has now done exactly what he said he would not do.
In one of his first calls as national leader, Mr Rudd has proclaimed his support for same-sex marriage and demanded that Tony Abbott allow his party a conscience vote on marriage’s fundamental man-woman definition. He has ignored the purpose of marriage to provide the safest environment, with both mum and dad role models, for the raising of the next generation.
“I was appalled by Kevin Rudd’s stated reasons for changing his mind six weeks ago,” Dr Phillips said. “But I noted his promise to refrain from campaigning on the issue.
“Now he has blatantly broken that promise. Can we ever believe what he says?”
