Jacinta Bading, 16, appeared in Darwins Juvenile Court and was ordered to stay away from her 18-yearold ex for two years. Police prosecutor Susan Wride told magistrate Sue Oliver bail was opposed because of the serious nature of the allegations. She said the teenager was drinking at Arch Rival nightclub, in Palmerston, before she punched her ex in the face without warning about 4am on Saturday. The NT News understands the punch was allegedly sparked after the teen saw her ex-boyfriend Des mond Liddy dancing with other women in the club. Sergeant Wride said Ms Bading went to a Moulden unit an hour later and saw her former boyfriend walk outside before she armed herself with a knife. Sgt Wride said the teen was waving the knife violently before stabbing him in the mid-section of the body and the upper arm. The teens lawyer Teresa Porritt said Ms Bading was heavily intoxicated that night and would consent to strict bail conditions, including a curfew. But Ms Oliver said the girls parents were unable to attend court and she would need to know more about the teenagers family situation before granting bail. Ms Bading will re-appear in court on March 27. By DAVID WOOD A ROCK shaped like Australia has been pulled out of the ground in the Territory. It is a fair dinkum, bloody beauty, bonza, stone the flamin crows, friggin VB-drinking Alf Stewart type of rock. Humpty Doos Brett OBryan was working in the Douglas Daly digging down with a 30 tonne excavator looking for water. He said the rock, which is about 1.5m long, about 1m wide and 400mm thick, was about 9m underground and is very obviously shaped like Australia. Its a little smaller, of course. Its amazing to see, he said. It just came out of the ground like that. We havent chiselled it out or touched it. Its quite freaky. I have no idea (what he is going to do with it), it is too bloody heavy to pick it up and cart it around anywhere. It weighs about half a tonne. Mr OBryan said it could be sandstone but he was not sure. He said you could see the teeth marks on the side of it from the excavator bucket. Mango producers hope for taste of fruitful future RESEARCH and development will be the hot topic at the 2012 NT Mango Industry Forum being held near Darwin this week. Minister for Primary Industry Kon Vatskalis said the Northern Territory mango industry had a record crop in the 2011 season, with more than 4 million trays produced at an estimated value of $80 million. The annual forum is an opportunity for government and growers to discuss developments, and priorities for the mango industry, Mr Vatskalis said. It is a major contributor to the NT economy, employing people throughout the season as well as making significant contributions to the wider Territory economy. Time for young to create YOUNG Territorians are urged to imagine, create and inspire when the the countrys biggest youth celebration hits next month.
