4 KATHERINE TIMES, WEDNESDAY AUGUST 19 2015 www.katherinetimes.com.au >> news Museum ready for teddy invasion In briefPlan to get croc industry snapping THE first framework for developing the Territorys $25 million crocodile industry was launched in Darwin on August 13. The framework, known as the Northern Territory Crocodile Farming Industry Strategic Plan 2015-21, has the backing of industry bodies. Business Minister Peter Styles said the plan complements the saltwater crocodile management strategy. The Crocodile Farmers Association of the NT said it believed the industry could generate $50m for the Territory within five years. Citizenship ranks receive big boost THE number of Australians in town will swell when Katherine Town Council hosts a citizenship ceremony on August 24. The ceremonies are traditionally held before the councils ordinary monthly meeting but, due to the number of Katherinites scheduled to become citizens, a special standalone event had been scheduled. The ceremony will begin at 5.30pm at the council chambers.

TEDDY bears will swap the woods for the lush grounds of the Katherine Museum on August 22 when they join their owners for a bit of furry fundraising fun. The annual Teddy Bears Picnic will run from 2pm until 5pm on Saturday and coincide with a Katherine Motor Vehicle Enthusiasts Club show and shine. Picnic organiser Jodie Locke said the museum would be overrun with teddy bears for the event, which raises funds for the museum. Were expecting about 200 bears and their owners, she said. It is a day of fun and teddy judging, and there will be a teddy hospital for injured teddies at a small cost for repairs. In addition, community groups will offer a range of entertainment and things to explore, including fire engines, fishing competitions and head-turning quilts. Mrs Locked urged Katherinites to dust off their teddy bears and get involved. It is a great few hours out and, along with the show and shine, will be a great day for all of the family, she said.
