Commenting on the story: A new era for arts journalism in South Australia

Wonderful news! As a keen supporter of the arts, it will be so good to have quality arts journalism to fill the gap lost with the demise of The Adelaide Review. Congratulations to the founding supporters for their foresight. – Helen Salkeld

Fantastic initiative. Well done. – Nick Ross

I am so pleased to see this announcement for InReview starting next year. Like so many, I felt gutted when Adelaide Review shut down. Thank you very much to the supporting groups for making this happen and I look forward to reading the first instalment next February. – Jane Longbottom

Congratulations to Solstice Media  and to those who  provided seeding financial support. You understand the importance of the arts, their value and positive contribution to the community. – Rosemary Miller

Thanks for the vote of confidence in our arts scene – it deserves it! Cathy Chua

Commenting on the story: Gas supplier takes SA planning authority to court over ‘irrational’ housing estate approval

I am absolutely astounded that this has been approved.

Take a look at the San Bruno pipeline failure in the US in 2010 for the reason that SEA Gas is concerned! – Emma King

Commenting on the story: Consensus over: Morrison Govt IR bill is a business wish-list

“… job flexibility… ” – code for Workchoices 2.0.

Remember – it has been government policy for stagnant wage growth since 2013.

That they have got away with this signals the next step. – Robert Alexander

Commenting on the story: The Overland back on track after Victorian Govt gets on board

Thank heavens sanity and common sense has prevailed and this wonderful gem of an intercapital train service has been saved to continue operating.

We have done this trip a number of times over the years. Its a very relaxing, scenic and very enjoyable trip to do between Adelaide and Melbourne. It beats driving or travelling by bus on road that is only freeway standard for less than 25 per cent of the total distance.

The service, staff, amenities and food and beverage offerings are excellent.

Shame on the SA Government for not paying their share altogether, it’s an embarrassment to all South Australians as this train was built and staffed by SA, and it services a hefty portion of its trip in SA from Adelaide to Victorian border. – Julian Saliba

How exciting for we country folk between Adelaide-Melbourne, more so for us at Nhill, Victoria as I have just made my booking on The Overland for early January to travel to Adelaide.

We need this train service to continue on further than three years as mentioned, and the timetable to be fixed up, as at present it is ridiculous. Many pensioners, elderly and disabled aren’t able to afford to stay several nights in hotels before their return trips home.

This train is our link to the cities and other towns and if we lose this service we have nothing left. Please come with us on this journey to save The Overland. This train must never be taken away from we country towns. – Helen Woodhouse-Herrick
