MICHAEL FRANCHI THEPHOTO DARWIN LOVE WELL-KNOWN local couple Ty McDonaldGrant and Grace Wurramarrba share a special moment WHEN FRIDAY, December 10, 5:30pm. Katherine is now booze party town By NICK CALACOURAS Yesterdays front page SHE SAID IT ANNE Shepherd Katherine Mayor Katherine is considered a party town. If people cant drink in their own community, they come to Katherine to access alcohol THE intervention has turned Katherine into a party town, according to mayor Anne Shepherd. Ms Shepherd said alcohol was a visible problem in Katherine. I can walk you through our streets at any time of the day or night and show you people drinking, she said. We are unlucky to have the two main drinking hotels on the main street, and its quite wide, so its hard to hide the drinking. Ms Shepherd said she was relieved to read about the Menzies School of Health Re search report in the NT News yesterday. The report found that Katherine consumed 211,422L of pure alcohol last year the equivalent of 11.8million cans of full strength beer consumed by the towns 10,090 residents. The Territory Government issued a statement last week saying Katherines alcohol management plan was working because the amount of alcohol consumed had dropped by 1.1million cans since 2007. But Ms Shepherd said the government should not be celebrating. I dont think you can call that a success. When the number is so high, a small reduction is no success. Ms Shepherd said she did not have the answer to Kath erines drinking problems which includes all members of the community. It is a mixture, but it is exacerbated by the intervention, she said. Katherine is considered a party town. If people cant drink in their own community, they come to Katherine to access alcohol. She said the Territory had the highest rate of alcohol consumption in the country and Katherine was the highest in the NT. It is much deeper than antisocial behaviour. Its the poor education, the poor job prospects, the disposition. Its a hell of a situation. New audience for Yamba IMPARJA and Central Australian icon Yamba the Honey Ant has a tilt at national fame. Yambas Playtime will air on Christmas Eve on the Nine Network. It will be the first indigenous childrens show to be broadcast nationally. Producer Julie McAllen said it was a first for Yamba and indigenous TV. Alice, Tennant train viable A BUSINESSMAN has called for a rail passenger service between Alice Springs and Tennant Creek. Greg Marlow of Marlow Canete & Associates in Tennant Creek said if government workers stopped driving between Alice and Tennant, travelling by train would become viable. He said: You can get from one town to another in about five hours.
