Centrelink staff have started operating a mobile bus from 11am until 3pm in the grounds of the Alice Springs Hospital. It will be available for the next three Saturdays. Centrelink manager Peter Doutre said many people from the four communities trialling income management Imanpa, Finke, Mutitjulu and Titjikala wanted to spend some of their money in town. Community residents indicated they wanted to be able to visit major retailers like Woolworths, Coles and Kmart. Mr Doutre said: To do this, customers need to visit Centrelink so we can issue them with a food card. General Centrelink assistance will not be available from the Saturday mobile bus. Mr Doutre said: Centrelink has put in place this extra service just for customers who want to access food and groceries in town. Well continue to operate this Saturday service if it proves popular amongst customers. Federal Indigenous Affairs Minister Mal Brough said income management was an integral part of the intervention into remote Aboriginal communities. He said it would stop people from spending their money on alcohol, drugs and gambling, which leads to abuse by neglect. Instead 50 percent of payments will be set aside for food, rent and other essential items. Community residents have had one-on-one meetings with Centrelink staff members to decide how their money will be quarantined. Looking after Yeperenye shopping Centre . . . Arrernte Council workers Will Cole, Dan Kelly, Daniel Kenafacke, Brendan Foster and Corey Dempsey. Workers in positive mode Rebecca Lollback YEPERENYE Shopping Centre has never looked better, thanks to the efforts of six indigenous workers. As part of a joint venture between the centre and Arrernte Council, six part-time maintenance jobs have been created. The workers Mickey Cole, Brendan Foster, Dan Kelly, Daniel Kenafacke, Willie Cole and Corey Dempsey cleaned up the car parks and stairways, removed graffiti and did other jobs around the shopping centre. Works manager Athol Mitchell said each of the men worked 51 hours a month. He said: Some of our work is daily, some of it is weekly and some of it is done fortnightly. So weve set up a bit of a work schedule and were pretty organised. The boys know what work has to be done when they get to work in the morning. The hours vary sometimes we start at 5am. But were hoping that after 12 months, well be able get a couple of fulltime jobs for the boys. With all the changes to CDEP, we really need to get some of these blokes into proper jobs. Arrernte Council director Heather Laughton said the agreement between Yeperenye and Arrernte Council promoted their workers as positive contributors to the town. All industrial needs WHEN one door shuts another opens has certainly been true for Alice Industrial Supplies. Alice Industrial Supplies manager Rod Berry (left) and Greg Mattock with some of the range of Metabo power tools, which has a catalogue of popular and new products out now. O w n e r A n d r e w Mowles and manager Rod Berry saw the opportunity to open the business when one of Alice Springs suppliers to industry closed in May. They decided to open an industrial supplies store carrying all the needs to cater for Alice Springs industries and the home handyman. The first step was to buy the remaining stock from the previous business and then combine it with what was already on hand for mobile tool store Alice Tool Tech, which is incorporated within Alice Industrial Supplies. Alice Industrial Supplies opened its doors at 3/39 Elder Street in July. Demand has been such that the range of product carried by the business has been constantly increased. What began as a range of nuts and bolts plus a tool range has developed into an industrial supply super store. The range includes Prolube lubricants, Metabo power tools, MacNaught grease products, trailor parts and accessories, Mig O Mag welding machines and consumables, safety gear and so much more. This is in addition to the full range of tools supplied by Sidchrome, Stanley, ABW, KC Tools and T & E Tools. Speciality tools from Cooper, Wellar, Knipex and Warren & Brown are also available. There are also tool boxes and ute boxes by White, Faber and DSM. When looking to buy a tool or fasteners of any description, do not forget Alice Industrial Supplies. There is everything needed for any industrial purpose from the screws, nuts and bolts to the tools to put them in place. Call in to the store at 3/39 Elder Street to check out the huge range of gear and talk to Rod Berry, Greg Mattock or Matt Deckert or phone on 8952 1955 or fax 8952 1966.
