SUNDAY MAY 5 2019 FRONTIER 23 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Ive lived in the NT all my life. I like the variety here, meeting tourists. The dry season is my favourite. We go bush and take our grandchildren camping, show them country. I am Marita Sambono. Picture: GLENN CAMPBELL THE NUMBERS GAME 102 The NTG wont pass on savings of $102 per household on electricity bills despite being recommended by the Australian Energy Regulator FORGOTTEN TERRITORY Even if youre sick, theres no excuse to miss the parade. Patients and staff of the Alice Springs Public Hospital gather to see the Bangtail Muster in the early 1980s. The first Bangtail Muster Parade was held 60 years ago to mark the start of the cattle mustering season. First run by the Chamber of Commerce, then by the Rotary Club of Alice Springs from the sixties onwards, the parade is still a chance for the community to get together and dress up on the May Day public holiday. Its on again tomorrow at 10am. STORY Caddie Brain IMAGE Neroli Stayt , Growing up in Alice Springs Facebook group 2000 The NTG gave out 2000 condoms to the 1800 Arafura Games athletes 60 William and Ellen Suffolk celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary this week - an epic milestone. Congratulations folks! LEARN THE LINGO CYCLOPSSSSS A slithering creature with an eye in the centre of its head. In other words, a snake with three eyes. Creepy. MOONING A hilarious move in which one bares their buttocks at someone or something. This week a man was caught on camera mooning the Palmerston police station after a night on the sauce. L P P L L P P L Do you think 2000 condoms for 1800 athletes is enough? The NT Health Department has advised Major Events to hand em out to competitors so that people can enjoy getting friendly at the friendly games in a safe way. Its a lot of condoms but for that many people, its really not very many. The Games go for nine days, and thats really only allowing each participant to get down and dirty once. Unless theyre having the coitus with each other. Then twice. I mean, its not even allowing any morning fun times for those who choose to sleep over! Lets hope the athletes are supporting the local economy and stocking up on condoms from stores themselves. After all, we want people to leave Darwin after having a good time. Oh absolutely! You know what kind of snake in the pants I reckon most athletes wouldnt like to come across? One with three eyes. Creee-eeepy Look, I know its a stretch, but can we really prove that the snake ISNT an alien? I mean, how else would it have got third eye right in the middle of its noggin? Do you reckon it could actually see out of it? Ive heard snakes have pretty terrible eyesight. Maybe it was just advanced for its species? It wouldnt be much of a view though would it? Just all sky and clouds. That pesky third eye would get quite moist in the wet season too. All Im saying, as someone who wears glasses, is that it would not be particularly pleasant BLAH, BLAH, BLAH With Lauren Roberts and Phillippa Butt
