Montes Lounge made an application to the NT Licensing Commission to vary the conditions of its restaurant licence so people could stand up and drink. But Peoples Alcohol Action Coalition head John Boffa opposed the application because he was concerned the restaurant would turn into a bar or nightclub. But the restaurants lawyer Alan Woodcock said it would be impossible for people to gather around the bar because it was a small area. He also said Montes had no televisions, gaming machines or bar stools. But commission chairman Richard OSullivan dismissed the application because of insufficient evidence. Meanwhile, The Gapview Resort Hotel, in Alice Springs, has applied to extend trading hours to 2am. There will be a hearing into the application at a later date. Ash Seale with the dress made out of copies of the NT News Picture: MICHAEL FRANCHI NT News dress for success, says Ash By MEGAN PALIN ConfideNTial Reporter TRAINING surgeon and budding fashion designer Ash Searle has been offered a design contract by Melbourne-based theatre producer Erin Voth after creating a dress inspired by the NT News. Searle, 28, said she was asked to make all costumes, props and scenery for comedy Fat Man Crying. And she hopes to bring the production to Darwin. We need more live comedy and theatre up here but the shows in its very early stages, she said. Searle created the cocktail dress made out of pages from the NT News to wear to a Darwin party themed WTF last Friday night. I figure nothing makes me think (WTF) more than the headlines of the NT News, Searle said. According to Searle, the style of the dress was inspired by the hot pink number that Sophia Vergara recently wore to the Screen Actors Guild awards. It took Searle two days to finish the piece. I used black cotton thread, double-sided tape, PVA glue, plastic boning, clear vinyl and bandaids and physio tape, she said. Searle made sure some of her favourite NT News stories featured on the dress. (I included stories about) crocs, cyclones, the Stuart Highway lion, Obamas visit, Inpex and of course a few stories from the hospital, and ex-patients, she said.

Thermostatically controlled kettles will ensure maximum-security inmates cant get hold of water hotter than 60 degrees. The crackdown follows 31-year-old convicted killer Jeremy Anthony throwing boiling water in the face of a prison guard at Alice Springs jail in December. Correctional Services chief executive Ken Middlebrook said he fully supported the tepid tea recommendations of the prisons management and health and safety representatives. They have determined that to minimise the risk of future incidents of this nature, these classes of prisoner will have to make do with being provided partially heated water in the case of maximum-security sentenced prisoners and controlled communal facilities in remand and reception, he said. He said medium and lowsecurity prisoners had continued to use their individual kettles responsibly. It will remain business as usual, he said. Mr Middlebrook said the injured 35-year-old prison officer had made a full recovery from his burns and was keen to get back to work at Alice jail. Anthony threw hot water at another prisoner in Darwin jail two years ago. He was jailed for bashing his pregnant wife to death in Katherine in 2003. Then Chief Justice Brian Martin granted him bail during the court case but ordered him not to go to Lajamanu, 450km southwest of Katherine, for tribal punishment. But Anthony went and suffered a broken arm and spear wound to the leg. He was arrested in his hospital bed for breaking his bail conditions.
