The Territory is often visited by unidentified objects in the sky but they usually stick to the dry season when conditions are nicer and presumably closer to what is considered ideal for the growing mobile middle class across the more progressive parts of the universe. The President of Earth, Mr Obama, frolicked in Darwin for a few hours yesterday with airspace and roads cleared for his trip from the airport into the Big Smoke. But Acacia Hills resident UFOologist Alan Ferguson says if there is something big, the intergalactic extended family would be there. I havent seen anything or know of anything, he said of recent visits. But usually when there is a big events around the place, the boys usually arrive. Those from other parts of the gal axy may have extended their green middle fingers to Mr Obama because of a White House decree about 10 days ago that there was no evidence of life out there. A petition submitted through the White Houses We the People project which lets anyone submit a petition requesting government action asked for a formal acknowledgment of an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race. But the White House was secret squirrel on the issue. The US Government has no evi dence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race, said Phil Larson, who works on policy and communications for the White Houses Office of Science & Technology Policy. While Mr Ferguson did not put forth the snubbing theory, he did accuse the White House of a cover up. They are going to stick to that line but sooner or later they are going to have to come good, Mr Ferguson said. He said the US Government monitored deep into space with such things as the Hubble Space Telescope but that was a mistake. You dont have to look that far, he said. They are in the Territory all the time. I dont know what they are going on about. It is always quiet this time of year. Maybe, maybe we might see something if it clears up. Maybe not. Its pretty hard, they do what they want to do. I dont control them. Arrest in city brawl A MAN has been arrested in relation to a crime rampage through Darwin which allegedly culminated in a street fight involving up to 30 people. Another two men were yesterday in police custody. The man has been charged with stealing, driving and liquor offences. He has been remanded in custody. Police have several homes in Dar win and Palmerston under surveillance, fearing there may be more violence following the large-scale brawl involving machetes at Tiverton Court, Moulden, on Sunday night. The fight is alleged to be the culmination of a crime spree where two bottle shops were robbed and a residence in Driver had a window smashed by men in a white Isuzu tip-tray truck. Selfish act killed teen mate By MEAGAN DILLON Marcus McGregor, 14, was killed in an horrific car accident in Palmerston in April. The driver, Justin James Salzgeber, 19, yesterday was sentenced to three years jail to be suspended after nine months A TERRITORY teenager who killed his teenage cousin after losing control of his car while drink-driving and speeding will be released from prison in two months. Justin James Salzgeber, 19, was yesterday sentenced to three years jail to be suspended after nine months. He has already spent seven months in custody. Salzgeber pleaded guilty in the NT Supreme Court on Tuesday to dangerous driving causing the death of Marcus McGregor, 14, on April 14. The court heard he was travelling at a minimum speed of 180km/h three times the legal speed limit with an overloaded car along Temple Tce, Palmerston, about 1.30am. He returned a bloodalcohol concentration of 0.211 per cent. Justice Dean Mildren said Salzgeber was driving to Darwin to answer drink-driving charges in court when he crashed. He said two other passengers were seri ously injured in the crash. Justice Mildren said Salzgeber had a selfish disregard for the safety of his five family members in the car. It was your responsibility to ensure the safety of your passengers, he said. Its a most sad thing that a life has been taken. Justice Mildren said Salzgeber and his cousin had a close relationship and grew up together at Adelaide River. That too is a well recognised mitigating factor, he said. He suspended the prison sentence for three years. He also disqualified Salzgeber from driving for three years.
