Education Minister Syd Stirling is about to announce that Anzac Hill High School will remain open. NT Cabinet made the decision last week, l eav ing parent s , teachers and students guessing for up to a fortnight for the official word. So far, the future of middle schooling has been kept under lock and key, suggesting there is good news for Alice Springs. Bad news like the closure of a school does not remain secret for long. Out To Lunch went to dinner at Red Centre Dreaming at the He a v i t r e e Gap Outback Lodge last week. The award-winning showfeatures fourAboriginal dancers f r om f a r n o r t h Queensland. Aboriginal men who can dance and tell stories are apparently in short supply in Central Australia. Some of the tourists were perplexed by the performances on display in the makeshift red dirt corroboree circle. A couple from Melbourne wondered if they were actually in Alice Springs as they watched the men perform the Barrier Reef dreaming and a cassowary dance. Another highlight cameduring ahunting song and dance routine. The story revolved around three of the menwho had been out hunting kangaroo. A fourth man was asking them in a far northQueenslanddialect to share their bounty, to no avail. Exasperated, he finally said, in English: Ahh bugger this. Lets go to KFC. Heres a nother tip a prominent Centralian will soon be appointed to Prime Minister John Howards Indigenous Adv isory Council. The inside word is that the new appointee was handpicked to provide ad vice on Central Australian issues following three weeks of intense national debate. The only Territory representatives on the counc i l which replaced ATSIC are based above the Berrimah Line. Expe c t an an nouncement in the next fortnight. A pat on the back for Mayor Fran Kilgariff, who was the only public figure to attend a mock trial organised by kids who at one time or another were homeless. The kids put the primeminister on trial for neglecting the needs of Alice Springs youth. They were chuffed to see Ms Kilgariff make the effort late on a Friday afternoon to attend the funny and po l i t i ca l l y -aware event. Tangentyere should get out of grog shop TANGENTYERE Council should forfeit its liquor licence at Milner Road supermarket to help curb alcohol abuse, the CLP says. Greatorex MLA Richard Lim labelled the council hypocritical for selling grog while lobbying for help to tackle the problem. The licensee at the Milner Road LiquorWise outlet is Tancor Nominees Pty Ltd, an investment arm of Tangentyere Council. Dr Lim initially said the Central Land Council and Congress were part owners of the grog shop through the Centrecorp company. But the CLC said it was not a part owner or beneficiary, whileCongress did not respond to our request. Tangentyere confirmed it was involved with the shop, but offered no comment to Dr Lims claims. Dr Lim said: If Tangentyere Council is so concerned about take away alcohol and the problems on town camps they should surrender the licence so we can have one less takeaway outlet in town. Dr Lim renewed his calls for an alcohol licence as a requirement to buy takeaway grog. He said calls to raise the price of cheap booze and a thirsty Thursday will punish themajority for the actions of a small group of drunks. He said: I think there are too many liquor licences in town, and there should be an orderly way to reduce those numbers. I dont have any problems with restaurants, pubs and clubs which have stringent on-site regulationson the sale of takeaway. We are a tourism town, and rather than raising prices or having a dry Thursday, lets deal directly with the drunks, rather than punish everyone.
