Cunningham has been deputy editor of the NT News since July 2010. News Limited chairman and chief executive John Hartigan said Cunningham was an energetic and creative leader with an impressive track record in building relationships and connecting with the community. Ricci has been promoted to a new role as assistant editor NewsCentral in Sydney. Cunningham said he was honoured to be appointed. I hope to continue the great work Julian has done to make the NT News the most talked-about newspaper in the country, he said. Ricci said he was excited by his new role but that was tempered with sadness at leaving the Territory. Darwin and the Territory is the best place Ive ever lived and worked, he said. I will miss everything about it but most of all the people and the many friends Ive made in my time here. Ricci was extremely proud to have been given the chance to edit the NT News. The NT News has a wellearned reputation for doing things a little bit differently. Territorians, in particular, consider themselves a little bit different to the rest of the pack. They dont have much time for politicians bulls**t, they hate being told what to do by a southerner, they love a good laugh. The saying only in the Territory is one regularly adopted by the paper. Dozens of stories could fit into this category. A bloke who robs a pub then strips naked in front of the CCTV cameras before strolling out, a woman who makes casserole out of cats or a topless woman who saves hotel guests from a fire. Despite the NT Newss quirky nature, it would be a mistake to underestimate it. All the big stories un covered in the Territory are broken by the NT News. Three inquiries are under way after the NT News revealed tonnes of copper concentrate were being dumped into Darwin harbour from the shipping wharf. Three senior health officials were removed from their positions last year after exclusive reports about failings within their department. None of this would be possible without the dedication and ability of our reporters and photographers and I thank them and everybody Ive worked with. The team from Abode Homes which won the Telstra 2011 NT Business of the Year Picture: SHANE EECEN Victory built on efficient homes By CAINE EDWARDS A BUILDER focusing on designing houses suited to the Territory climate has won the Territorys top business award. Abode New Homes won this years Telstra NT Business of the Year award last night. Justin and Karinda Gill established the Darwin-based company about four years ago. Their vision was to build environmentally sustainable homes, using solar power and inverter airconditioning, which carry a 5-star energy efficiency. The couple built more than 230 homes in Darwin through their Pinelands business. Abode New Homes also received the MYOB Small Business of the Year at last nights presentation. Telstra Business regional general manager NT, Brian Hillier, said all winners were an inspiration to the small and medium business sector. We are proud that the awards program continues to celebrate risk-takers and achievers, he said. Darwin Day Surgery in Fan nie Bay collected the News Ltd Business Owner MicroBusiness and AMP Innovation awards. Area9 IT Solutions scooped up the Panasonic Australia Medium Business Award and the Yellow Pages Social Responsibility Award. And the Telstra Regional Business and Blackberry Peoples Choice Awards went to Tennant Creeks Eldorado Motor Inn. The NT winners will be judged against other statewinners before the national Telstra Business Awards in Melbourne on August 26. Aldermen go crackers over Territory Day fireworks From Page 1 Others said it had scared southerners and was uncivilised. Even those who favoured the tradition said fireworks were getting bigger and louder. Alderman Rodger Dee told a meeting on Tuesday he was in favour of crackers. But this year was the worst I have ever seen it was like Beirut out there, Mr Dee said. Alderman Helen Galton said Tasmanian visitors had told her it was a terrifying ordeal. They said they walked through the city after dinner on July 1 and were never so scared. They could not believe we were allowed fireworks. The controversy is fuelled by people who stockpile rockets. Lord Mayor Graeme Sawyer said the council would consider the fire brigades call to ban rockets. We will have a debate when the clean-up bill arrives, he said. In previous years the cost has hit $45-50,000.
