WORDSSCARTOO PALMERSTONS Christy Roberts was angry at online criticism of her mum Krys, who was attacked by a small crocodile while fishing. She posted on ntnews.com.au: Do you really know what it is like to see the one you love go through a croc attack? To see the pain and suffering that your loved one has endured? All treatment and the rehabilitation? She now lives with the scars and the memory of it every day. BELLYBUST AN enterprising woman in Darwins Tiwi suburb is offering to make and sell plaster casts of pregnant ladies bellies. Decorate or paint however you wish, the flyer says. HEAVYNEWS RESIDENTS were not happy when they received a letter from developer Michael Anthony saying that a concrete pour for a new block of units in Gardiner St, Darwin, would begin at 5am. SULTANS SELECT CUT YUENDUMU muso Dan Sultan was excellent on ABC TVs final Spicks and Specks. He had to sing wellknown songs to the text of a book called Castration an Abbreviated History of Western Manhood by Gary Taylor. This is very scary for me, he says. HOMESWEETHOME MARK Sweet was listed in the ever popular Most Powerful List as having moved interstate with Telstra. In fact, Mark has left Telstra and, not wanting to leave Darwin, now manages Winnellie-based security company STS. CHARLES SAYSNO THE CLP has asked Channel Nine sports reader Charles Croucher to stand at the next election. He said no. Charles was approached because he used to work for the National Party. But Bushranger understands that his roots are in the Labor Party. THEUMPIRES DECISION DARWIN ABC Radio commentators may be getting a present from Santa Claus after querying the competence of the NT Football Leagues umpiring fraternity. Sources have told Bushranger giftwrapped rule books with red and green ribbons on the laws of Australian football could land on Auntys desk in the next two weeks. They will be addressed to Messers McCormack, McLean and Bowden and could relate to comments made on the umpires own interpretations of the rules. APEEPATTHE ECLIPSE IF you took a break from full-moon antics last night, you would have seen the blood-red lunar eclipse. As the Earth blocked the suns rays from lighting the moon, the Earths shadow crept across the moon, with a 51-minute total eclipse. It was the second total lunar eclipse this year and the last until 2014. Unless our photographers were too busy snapping werewolves or crazy naked criminals, there should be pictures in tomorrows NT News. ASHARPREMINDER IN commemoration of the opening of the Wickham Point detention centre, a Darwin asylum seeker support groups new logo features barbed wire and a dragonfly. Unmotivated THE NT News makes it into one of the demotivational emails doing the rounds BigPond up in wake of shutdown BIGPOND email users have been reconnected after a privacy breach shut down the system. Telstra said it was made aware of a privacy breach about 4pm (AEDT) on Friday and disabled its online billing, BigPond self-care and My Account functions an hour later. Account details of just under one million Telstra customers were potentially compromised when the customer service website was openly accessible on the web. As a precaution, Telstra has reset the passwords of around 60,000 customers. Night of crime in Darwin By CONOR BYRNE A DRUNK man fired a gun at his partner and a woman was mugged and punched in the face in a full-moon night of crime in Darwin city. A 28-year-old Ludmilla man drunkenly shot his firearm to frighten/endanger/ annoy his partner after an altercation on Friday night, police said. The shot was fired at their Tudawali St home at about 8pm. The man will appear in court for recklessly endangering life and being drunk and in charge of a firearm. In a separate incident also on Friday night, a woman was punched and her friend dragged behind a car in a mugging on Smith St in Darwin city. The women, aged 21 and 26, were approached near the Asti Motel on Smith St at 4am yesterday by two men, one with a knife, and a woman, who stole a handbag and ran. The women chased and caught up with the offenders on Peary St. They were in a stolen maroon Holden Commodore station wagon. The 21-year-old woman tried to get her handbag back through the window but was dragged alongside the car as it drove up Smith St and into Daly St. She was injured as she fell. Her friend was punched in the face in the melee. The car was found in Wulagi and police are calling for witnesses. Boxing Bell will knock you out By MEGAN PALIN BORN-and-bred Territorian Kylie Bell likes to have a good time. The personal assistant taught Boxercise classes in Alice Springs before moving to Darwin in May. Miss Bell said theres no one in particular shed like to step into a boxing ring with and knock out. Im easygoing, she said. But while Miss Bell (pictured) may possess a happy-go-lucky attitude, she doesnt like to sit still. Thats boring, she said. Miss Bell works out regularly at the gym and is a national league umpire for netball. I exercise to live an energetic, exciting life and to stay young as long as I can, she told the NT News. And, like a true Territorian, shes recently taken up fishing as a hobby. Its one of my favourite things to do at the moment, especially catching barramundi, she said. Now that shes finding her groove in the Top End, Miss Bell has plans to start teaching fitness again in 2012. I want to get back into personal training and teaching aerobics, she said.
