As a follow up to my post yesterday about the vandalism to Niagra dam, It seems the main offender was a centre care worker on a 3 week contract to encourage street art to disadvantaged youths (obviosly a non lamb eater) when some of the 12 youths were caught writing their names on the 107 year old dam wall he handed out spray cans so the job could be done properly. He has been sacked and may face legal action. The kids may be required to assist with an attempted clean up

Dumb is not nearly a strong enough word.
This would nearly qualify for a living Darwin Award.

Look I know it's a serious thing that has happened but I couldn't help but laugh. Promoting vandalism via government employees......what next?

No! No! and No!

That's not vandalism - it's free and creative expression, encouraging the youngsters to explore the mediums of paint, light, texture and colour in an incisive attempt to expand their horizons and assist them to confront their inner being with a positive expectation of throwing off the shackles of their repressed upbringings and allowing them to develop a true sense-of-self and awareness of their world.

Personally I'd have taken the little bastards 10 miles into the desert given them water and a compass and said "Now lets see what you can do - those who make it back get to live". _That_ would do wonders for their self-esteem.

As for the supervisor… 30 miles and no water….

No wonder some kids grow up confused about where they fit? If, indeed, they do at all...?

Hi Davoe,

Unfortunately this only goes from bad to worse doesn't it.

A government funded initiative to encourage street art - you have to be kididng! I wonder which department is responsible for this gem? Not something to be proud of in the lead up to next month's State election.

mate its almost as good as here in vic, we have schemes where young pricks who knock off cars get put into racing schemes - go kart / sedans etc. Bugger me i cant afford to run a race car , but its nice to know my takes are paying for some ratbag to have fun for free.

BTW - what the hell was this fool doing with spraycans up there anyway ?? Hardly standard country travell kit.

Davoe. . . .
I lived in Kal for 5 years, there are a lot of mineshafts not being used up there, maybe there is a use for them after all?? I read your post bout the "slow race" on Nanny Goat hill, brings back memories of drunken nights at the Feddy, and then to hear that the Foundary has closed brough tears to my eyes. . . . I hope the "Wreck" is still open for Bundy & Coke brekkies!
Hope they make the buggers clean the wall, it is a great place to stop on the way home from Laverton or Leonora.
Cheers
Wetty

yes it is althogh it is 5 years since I last popped in there for a breakfast session after n/shift. rest assured the xchange hasnt changed either. They are filling in alot of those shafts. 1 kid got trapped down one after scaling an 8 ft high barbed wire topped fence to get pidgeon eggs and the KCGM mines recue team had to pull him out. hmmmmmmm wonder if he was at niagra dam.
I can tell by your motto perhaps you also got lumped with student engineers doing vac work.
Not the same place these days. the last time I was at the foundary was for a wet t contest and they could only rustle up a couple of skimpys and 2 backpackers so the old hag from behind the bar made up the numbers.- winner was v nice though
