Commenting on the story: Community television faces endless white noise

What a shame!  The station promotes a lot of minor sports, and other community activities, such as the Orthodox Easter. 

In the scheme of things, surely the federal govt could give a free license – it’s such a small amount of money. – Anne McMenamin

We, being a little bit remote, look forward to the channel 44 programs; gardening, 4WD shows and others we like.

More recently the church services have been great.

It had better not shut down as it is great for the local community. – Lorraine Rothe

Commenting on the story: Oil prices collapse into negative territory for first time

The collapse of the oil price (even if temporary), is a reminder that electrifying our transport sector is the best way Australia can improve its oil security, while also capitalising on its renewable resources and addressing climate change.

So where are the policies to increase the uptake of electric vehicles?

Over a year ago, a Senate committee reported on the use and manufacture of electric vehicles in Australia.

Yet the Morrison Government so far has produced very little policy-wise to harness opportunities arising from EV.

While a few smaller entrepreneurs are making the running, perhaps if all relevant governments had this vision, South Australia could be returning to car making on a larger scale.

In 2020, the case to make the use and manufacture of electric vehicles more attractive in Australia is compelling. – Jim Allen
