The flight from to Newman, about 745miles (1200km) northeast of theWestern Australia capital, was forced to turn around after passengers heard and felt the bang about 10minutes after the 5.40am takeoff. Fashion statement SYDNEY: Swimwear designer Zimmermann kept summer alive as it opened Australian FashionWeek in Sydneywith the Halcyon Days collection. Givenchymodel Ruby JeanWilson opened the show in an ivory-coloured, sleeveless, calflength dress panelled in linen and cotton lace, with squared peep-hole brocade. Alleged killer to plead not guilty ANAdelaideman plans to plead not guilty to shooting dead three of his neighbours and attempting to kill a boy and a policeman. Donato Anthony Corbo, 39, faced AdelaideMagistrates Court yesterday charged with threemurders in Hectorville on Friday and two attemptedmurders. Corbos lawyer, AndrewMoffa, told Magistrate Paul Foley his client intended to enter a plea of not guilty. Corbo is next due to appear at the AdelaideMagistrates Court on July 26. Charged MP axed by party ADELAIDE: A South Australian Labor MP charged with child pornography offences has been suspended from the ALP, but could still take his seat in the Upper House when Parliament resumes today. The partys state executive unanimously endorsed the move to suspend former minister Bernard Finnigan yesterday after a request from Premier Mike Rann. State secretary Michael Brown said he put the recommendation to the executive after the request from the Premier. Mr Rann said he had asked the Labor Party to suspend the MP while the mans case was before the courts. I have asked the executive of the Labor Party, at both the state and national level, to suspend the MP whos been charged from the Labor Party and the Labor Caucus, the Premier said ahead of the executive meeting. It would be inappropriate for them be a member of the Labor Caucus during the time of these legal proceedings. Mr Finnigan has been charged with four child porn offences and will appear in court this month. He cant be named in the SA media because of provisions regarding sex offences in the states law. But it remains unclear if Mr Finnigan will seek to take his seat with his suspension from the ALP not preventing him from continuing his duties as a member of the Legislative Council, or Upper House. Teachers rewards By PAUL OSBORNE Bonuses for top educators It shouldnt be a bureaucratised process PRIME Minister Julia Gillard has unveiled a controversial plan to pay cash bonuses to top-performing school teachers ahead of next weeks Federal Budget. Returning from a trip to north Asia and the Royal Wedding in London, Ms Gillard visited a Canberra school on Monday to spell out how the Government would deliver on its election pledge to improve teacher quality. About 25,000 teachers or one in 10 will be rewarded with bonuses of between $5400 and $8100 depending on their experience, with the first payments to be made in 2014. Teachers performances will be measured from lesson observations, student results, feedback from parents, qualifications and profess ional development. The Prime Minister said rewarding the best teachers was the right thing to do. A great chance in life starts with a great education, and one of the best ways to get a great education is to have exceptional teachers, Ms Gillard said. While Opposition Leader Tony Abbott favours better pay for teachers, he said a system should be put in place immediately and schools themselves should control it. It shouldnt be a bureaucratised process, Mr Abbott told reporters in Melbourne. Australian Education Union president Angelo Gavrielatos said Labors plan would be divisive among teachers, and pay should be in creased across the board. He said Labor was fascinated with a corporate approach to education that has been experimented in the US, but it has failed spectacularly. The soaring Aussie dollar is the motorists friend, economists say Picture: FIONA MORRISON Less pain at pump CANBERRA: Fuel prices hit a 30-month high last week, but a stronger Australian dollar has lessened the squeeze on motorists, an economist says. The national average price of unleaded petrol rose by 0.5c a litre to 144.6c a litre in the week to May 1, data released yesterday from the Australian Institute of Petroleum showed. The metropolitan price rose by 0.6c a litre to 144c a litre, while the regional average price rose by 0.1c a litre to 145.6c a litre. Exporters and investors may not like our soaring currency, but the Aussie dollar is clearly the motorists friend, said CommSec chief economist Craig James. But, Mr James said the Australian dollar could only protect motorists by so much as the global oil price continued to rise after stronger demand from Asia and amid concerns about North Africa and the Middle East.
