Parents Glenn and Debbie Middis could not hold back tears as students unveiled a plaque at Leanyer School yesterday to honour the much-loved boy. Mr Middis told the NT News he was overwhelmed by the gesture. I dont know what to say, he said. This is just beautiful its more than I expected. The plaque carrying Nicholas smiling face has been embedded in a large natural stone in the schools back yard, surrounded by desert roses and summer scent trees. Former classmates in their blue uniforms read poems and shared memories in front of students as part of the unveiling ceremony. His brother Daniel, 11, who also goes to the close-knit community school, was among the crowd. Fellow classmate Rafael Das Neves spoke about the many times he played soccer with Nicholas and their big buddies. I remember his dad said in the newspaper he wanted to play soccer next year and I felt very sad ... my friend Nicholas couldnt live his dream, he said. I keep scoring goals for him because he was so nice to me. And pupil Bradley Gilmore said: I remember Nicholas when I go to the water park and look at the calm water because it reminds me of how kind Nicholas was. Nicholas, 8, died when cardboard boxes outside his family home were set alight early on Sunday, June 13. The fire spread to the small unit in Baroalba St, Leanyer, within minutes. The alleged arsonist remains on the run. Ms Middis was still too distressed to talk to the NT News yesterday. Her ex-husband Glenn thanked the community for their support. Its been a difficult time for us and we havent been able to express our thanks, he said. The whole community has been so supportive theyve helped us from day one. He said he is visiting Nicholas grave as often as he can. Stab case sentencing adjourned A MAN 52, pleaded guilty in the Northern Territory Supreme Court yesterday to stabbing another man in the heart. Eric Allan Kelly stabbed Grant Vaughan, 38, in the stomach and the heart at a house in Gray on June 17 this year. The court heard Kelly attacked Mr Vaughan after an argument. His lawyer Ian Read said this was a serious stabbing. Kelly, plainly, was drunk. Mr Read said Kelly had sustained two serious head injuries in his life. He asked for sentencing to be adjourned so Kelly could undergo a psychiatric assessment. ntnews.com.aul l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l NEWS Quickweather DARWIN Lightwindswith an afternoon shower or storm ALICESPRINGS Sunnywithmoderate southeasterlywinds.

Inpex finds crates of unexploded WW2 bombs in Darwin Harbour By NICK CALACOURAS Myadvice is that it poses no immediate danger JAPANESE gas giant Inpex has discovered 12 crates of unexploded World War II bombs at the bottom of Darwin Harbour. Darwin Port Harbour Master Ian Niblock last night confirmed 12 items appeared to be 60-year-old ammunition boxes discovered on the sea bed. They were pretty crusted with marine growth, he said. But Mr Niblock said one box was open and conical shells were clearly visible. My advice is it poses no immediate danger ... left alone. Its been there a long time. Defence had been contacted to remove the crates. The Darwin Port Corporation has issued advice to mari ners that unexploded ordnance was found near West Point at the entrance to the harbour. The unexploded ordnance posses no immediate or imminent danger if left undisturbed. But there is a very real danger to anyone who recovers any of the ordnance into a boat or ashore, the statement said. Mariners are cautioned about recovering unknown objects from West Point and are advised to leave objects alone and report positions to Port Control on VHF channel 10. Inpex Darwin general manager Sean Kildare last night said it was making sure there were no safety hazards along the pipeline route when it found unexploded ordinance. Inpex is very aware of the harbours status as a working harbour with an important military role ... we conducted a thorough investigation of the seabed to ensure the safety of people, including the community and our workers, the environment and assets, he said. We are pleased to be able to make the harbour a safer place for everyone. Safety of people and the environment are our priorities.
