Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 screened in a special midnight session that saw fans flock to Territory cinemas. The Jones sisters, Nikita, 13, Natasha, 17, and Natalie, 15, bought their tickets to the Casuarina launch four days early to make sure they didnt miss out. Afterwards, Natalie gave the film five stars even though it was nothing like the books or what (she) expected. I cried in it, she said. It was as good as the other Twilights. The diehard Twilight fan and her sisters donned merchandise from the series, including a T-shirt, pants, necklace, bag and key chains. Ive been to the midnight screening of every Twilight movie and (my sisters and I) always bring our Twilight merch, she said. But the teen couldnt decide if she was on Team Jacob or Team Edward the movies two male lead characters who have divided women across the globe. Im on team Switzerland that means you can go for both of them, Natalie said. Formore pics from the premiere, see Social Butterflies in theSunday Territorian RSL back in business THE Alice Springs RSL Club, which has been closed since January because of financial problems, is set to re-open next week. The club closed when it was unable to pay creditors $345,000. Police have said there was an ongoing fraud inquiry in relation to it. Since its closure, the RSL club has undergone renovations and is set to open on November 23. Hike will hurt battlers Wendy Morton THE Territory Government was yesterday urged to remember the battlers when putting up electricity charges. NT Council of Social Services said increased prices would spell disaster for many families. Executive director Wendy Morton said cost of living was already high in the NT because of expensive housing, groceries and fuel. She said there had been a marked increase in the number of people applying for Power and Water hardship vouchers since the 2009 electricity price hikes. Thousands of vulnerable Territory families will be hard hit if the expected increase in power costs comes into effect unless safe guards are put into place to protect them, Ms Morton said. These people simply cannot afford any further price increases. And the Government is expected to impose hefty electricity and water increases in the mini-Budget next month. ACTION JACKSON A COUNCIL vacancy in a remote shire has been filled after two failed searches. Lucy Jackson has put her hand up to sit on the Barkley Shire Alyawarr ward seat after Esau Nelson resigned on September 5. The two failed searches have cost the shire about $4000. PAPERTRAIL DARWIN alderman Robin Knox has urged her elected colleagues to reduce the use of paper. The councils environment department is about to start a paper reduction strategy. Alice Springs council went paperless in August. Ms Knox said fellow aldermen should look at notes electronically where possible. OPENTOPLAY KIDS have started clambering all over Darwin Sailing Club again. The clubs new playground has opened its shiny new gate after months of fundraising. Members have raised more than $40,000 in six months through table quizzes, raffles, and head-shavings.
