FASD can have adverse effects on a childs development, learning and behaviour. The Committee invites individuals, families and community members who have concerns about FASD to attend a public forum to discuss the issues and problems they face in preventing, treating and managing the effects of FASD. The members of the Committee are the Hon Kezia Purick MLA, Mr Gary Higgins MLA, Ms Nicole Manison MLA, the Hon Bess Price MLA, Mr Gerry McCarthy MLA and Mr Gerry Wood MLA.

PAPULU APPARRKARI ABORIGINAL CORPORATION Community Education Day promotes importance of school attendance A HYDROPONICS cannabis operation on a remote outstation landed a man in court this week. Michael John Rout, 53, faces several charges including cultivation, possession and supply of cannabis. He appeared in the Alice Springs Magistrates Court on Wednesday. Sergeant Dave Hamlyn from the Southern Substance Abuse Desk said during the search members located a hydroponics room containing 25 cannabis plants. Police also located and seized a further 278 grams of cannabis, fi ve grams of cannabis seeds and $5,000 in cash, he said. Sergeant Hamlyn said the arrest had been the result of a joint investigation between Detectives in Tennant Creek and the Southern Substance Abuse Intelligence Desk. We will continue to target those people who choose to profit by selling illegal drugs to community members, he said. Man faces court over drug charges Birds enjoy roasted prey A SCRUB fi re on the north side of town last Sunday morning sent wildlife scurrying and provided a smorgasbord for local birds of prey. Thanks to the swift (pardon the pun) action by local fi ries, houses and residents at Mulga Camp were never in any real danger. As we gradually move from our brief winter to the drying summer months, scrub fi res are always a danger as well as a feature of Territory life. If you have some spare time and a social conscience, the Tennant Creek Volunteer Unit would love to hear from you. Call 0428 260 017 or email ntes@nt.gov.au for details.
