02 NEWS SUNDAY MAY 5 2019 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 Guess whos back DARWINS one and only rubbish warrior Trevor Jenkins is back in town after a few months down south, presumably to escape the wet season humid weather. Jenkins headed off to Sydney in early January, before also travelling to Melbourne and Tasmania on his trip interstate. We hope he enjoyed his time down south and left a number of his rubbish sculptures along the way. His unique sculptures will surely return to the Darwin streetscape very soon. Scraping the bottom of the barrel DARWIN council were left hanging by local politicians at a midweek press conference, when Senator Nigel Scullion and Police Minister Nicole Manison pulled out of a Smart City press conference, announcing the latest update of the project. Media advisers scraped together to find two other talents for a bizarre interview at Tamarind Park, made all the more confusing thanks to noise pollution from nearby trucks and lorries and birds in the trees above. New chief in town IT seems former chair of the manufacturers council Owen Pike has officially settled on a new line of work since his dismissal from the board in late February. The owner of MMC has recently submitted an email to news reporters with a new signature, finishing the email Cheers, Owen Pike, Chief S**t Stirrer, GummeNT Corp. Easter with a bang THE days leading up to Greek Orthodox Easter were filled with uncertainty as the community debated whether or not to throw their traditional dynamite and fireworks to welcome Easter Sunday. Darwin residents woke with a fright on Sunday morning to a string of bangs, rightly taking their concerns straight to Facebook to find out what the ruckus was. After learning of the tradition, one Darwinite wrote That makes sense. Woke up sh*tting myself. Others even contacted police to find out what was going on. Stars in the NT The Project and radio stars Carrie Bickmore and Tommy Little are running a competition to get southerners to visit the Northern Territory. Little, and fellow comedian Christian Hull, were in the NT to promote the competition this week, heading out on a Nautilus flight over Litchfield National Park followed by a wetlands cruise and a romantic dinner. Hook, line and sinker TOP End St John Ambulance paramedic Sam has taken her love of the job to the next level. The keen fisho has named her boat after the very instrument used to save lives. Shes named her vessel Resus. Confidence trick A SUPREME Court juror had a moment of panic when his tablet went missing from his seat in the public gallery this week. In the end, the man went away confident it was safely in the hands of court staff. I cant imagine anyone would have stolen it from the Supreme Court, he said. But Justice Peter Barr wasnt so sure. Im glad hes confident about that, he quipped after the man left the room. WORST PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK: THIS weeks award goes to the Cavenagh St Shade Structure for not performing its function of providing shade at Friday afternoons Laneway Series event. Maybe its name should be change to the Cavenagh St Structure until the vines grow across the steel beams. GREY-T LOCATION While the push to turn the old hospital site into a pop-up caravan park was unsuccessful it hasnt deterred people from using the empty site. One visitor was spotted with their caravan parked on the site for more than two days. It seems Grey Nomads agree the site could be a good location for a caravan park. Bushranger hopes the visitors enjoyed the sunsets over Cullen Bay and quick access to the city.
