Centralian Advocate, Friday, May 4, 2007 5 PU B : C A D V D A T E : 4M A Y -2 00 7 PA G E : 5 C O L O R : C M Y K NEWS Storywall hassles sorted out Rebecca Lollback STRICT ground rules have been put in place for future StoryWall screenings in Todd Mall on Thursday and Friday nights. The management of Aurora Alice Springs had complained that StoryWall an initiative of the Uniting Church and Welcome TV was not being run properly. There were concerns that groups of people were hanging around the area after the community social event leading to anti-social behaviour. Alice Springs Town Council last week hosted a mediation session to resolve the issue. It was attended by Aurora Resorts chairman Ian Drummond, Aurora Alice Springs general manager Ron Thynne, Rev Tracy Spencer, Welcome TVs David Nixon and other StoryWall representatives. Councils acting CEO Mark Blackburn said: Aurora wanted to ensure that no offensive behaviour would be tolerated. Ground rules need to be put in place. We will have another meeting in three months to see how everythings going. Ms Spencer said she understood Auroras concerns. She said: Last week there were some incidents but it was nothing major. The whole thing was blown out of proportion. Its all sorted out now. There will now be regular police patrols at the start and end of the event. Beauty expert for Alice A M A K E - U P a n d facial treatment specialist is coming to Alice Springs to conduct treatments and give advice on beauty make up.

Japanese tour at the double Rebecca Lollback MORE than 230 Japanese tourists arrived in Alice Springs on the Ghan yesterday. TOP: This tourist lost no time in capturing Alice. ABOVE: The happy tourists line up for instructions on the next leg of their trip. But instead of taking some time to enjoy the town, they all jumped straight on buses and headed for Uluru. Japan Airlines flew the visitors direct from Fukuoka to Darwin on Tuesday, and they are expected to fly out of Alice Springs this weekend. Yoshio Ishikawa, who was on the trip with his wife, said he was enjoying his second visit to Australia. The 73-year-old surgeon said: In Japan we have a lot of people living close together. But here it is wide open. Australia is a very fine country and the train was very good too. A second JAL charter will arrive in Alice Springs tomorrow. It has been estimated that each charter flight injects about $250,000 into the Central Australian economy. NT Tourism Minister Paul Henderson said there was a growing interest among the Japanese in developing new destinations and experiences in the Territory. He said: Not only do these charters provide a boost for the tourism industry, but they drive economic growth and keep the Territory moving ahead. More JAL charters are expected to arrive in Alice Springs this August.
