Little Eli gets big bucks Eleven-year-old Rosebury cowboy Eli Bee will buck it with the big boys at Noonamah Rodeo. Bullfighter Nathan Buckland and the other riders are looking forward to the event this weekend Picture: PATRINA MALONE By DAVID WOOD THISWEEKEND n Pride Festival launch, Friday, Happy Yess, 4.30pm, $10 n Dead (band), Saturday, Happy Yess, 9pm, $10 n Noonamah Rodeo, Noonamah Tavern, Saturday, 5pm, $25 adults, $10 kids, $60 family n Territory Craft Christmas Fair, Sunday, MAGNT, 10am to 3pm, free n Tinpan Orange, Sunday, Railway Club, 7pm, $30 HE is two years below the big boys but is still on the bulls. Rosebery bull rider Eli Bee, 11, rides in the junior bull category in rodeos. But they are still fair-size bulls. Although the category is for 13 to 17-year-olds, Noonamah rodeo organiser Dallis Wilschefski let him graduate to the bulls because there are no steer categories in the Top End. And he is in action again in Noonamah tomorrow. Eli began on poddy calves when he was eight living in Weipa, north Queensland. I saw my older brother (21-year-old Matty) at the first rodeo I went to and he won and won $500 and I wanted to do that, he said. So the next rodeo that came around I rode and I came second and won a fair few dollars. I go to every one possible . . . I love the feel of the adrenaline rush. I love it when I get off that bull and I know Ive made a good ride. Eli has had nine rides this year since moving to the Territory and has placed in four, but said he placed in most rides back home in his own age group. I got one on my first one (bull) at a practice and I rode time on it and I went on from there, he said. I got really, really scared when I rode my first poddy when I was eight and then I got on him and I rode time and jumped off and didnt know what to do I was so happy with myself. I just want to ride like him (brother Matty) . . . and ride over in America. Mum Ali Bee has had anxiety about her son and bulls. I just hold my breath and hope for the best and support him, she said. You cant stop em. It seems to be an adrenaline drug once they start. Disclosure, then closure Eugene Hurley THE NT Government will support the prosecution of priests who hide parish-goers confessions of child sex abuse. Chief Minister Terry Mills said any confession to the abhorrent act must be disclosed under the mandatory reporting act. People may be forgiven but they still have a case to answer, he said. NT Catholic Bishop Eugene Hurley this week pledged support for a Royal Commission into child sex abuse. But he claimed confessions made to a priest should remain confidential. Mr Mills said he had thought about this deeply. You make that confession to a heinous crime . . . the weight of the law must be enforced, he said. We can only have closure when we have disclosure. Mr Mills also told media the federal inquiry should go back to the case of former NT senator Bob Collins who died by suicide while facing multiple charges of alleged child sex abuse in 2007. Detectives probe death of tourist A TOURIST has been found dead at a popular Territory campsite. Police said the 59-year-old man was travelling alone when he collapsed at Elsey National Park, near Mataranka, about 420km south of Darwin. His body was found on Wednesday morning. The circumstances of the mans death were unclear last night but he reportedly died of a health-related issue. It is unknown how much time elapsed between his death and when he was located. Katherine detectives will investigate. The incident is not being treated as suspicious. Industry honours for NT high-fliers EXECUTIVES at Darwin and Alice airports have won gongs at the Australian Airports Association awards. Darwin Airport airline and airport services director Jim Parashos and Alice Springs Airport operations manager Simon Hatfield took out individual awards in their respective categories. AAA chief executive officer Caroline Wilkie said Mr Parashos had demonstrated a passion for aviation growth and was a highlyskilled salesman of airport services. Mr Hatfield was recognised for his role in the redevelopment of the apron of Alice Springs Airport.
