Wise to keep phone close AN NT journo received a picture not intended for him from a communications manager from a notable Territory-wide organisation recently, after her son managed to get hold of her mobile phone. While the picture sent was only of the boys baby sister playing with her toys and there was no danger of the comms manager facing any strife at work, its a timely reminder for anyone who knows anyone in the NT to watch where they leave their phone. Particularly given the sex scandal which developed recently, anyone with secrets to hide would want to keep their phone close by. Floored by discovery A DARWIN Crown prosecutor was caught being a bit too cavalier with important documents before a Supreme Court hearing kicked off namely the file of the case in question. When a call came through to the Sheriff asking if anyone had lost a file, the prosecutor piped up: Yes I have, a green one! They found it on the floor, the Sheriff responded. Pothole payback costly AN Alice Springs resident, known simply as A Walker in council documents, has been reimbursed $1636 after their car was damaged in a run-in with a pothole. Councillor Jimmy Cocking noticed the odd transaction in councils payments summary and raised the matter in Tuesdays ordinary meeting, curious as to whether it was normal practice for council to fork out four figures for pothole-related damage. Acting director of technical services TK Charlie confirmed that yes, this is indeed the done thing. He also confirmed that the pothole has since been repaired. It is not known whether the cost of repairing the pothole was more or less than the cost of A Walkers reimbursement. Molly ties the knot EX-NT News scribe Molly Baxter tied the knot in a secret ceremony recently. Now Mrs Upstill, the Darwin Turf Club media liaison reportedly didnt even invite family to the event, with only the couple, a celebrant and two witnesses attending. Congrats Molly. A toast to rich history THE announcement of Alice Springs iconic Bojangles Saloon reopening has trigged nostalgia in the community. Posting the exclusive story on the Centralian Advocate Facebook, residents reminisced about the good old days. The best ones were from a couple of people who met their spouses there, including a guy who said he met his wife there in December 2000, under the Jim Beam mirror. If walls could talk We look forward to the doors reopening and new memories being made! Bill fails to take flight AFTER being in Darwin for a sitting week of parliament recently, Namatjira MLA Bill Yan reportedly missed his flight home on the Saturday morning. Bushie wonders whether it had anything to do with a Friday night function where he was representing CLP leader Lia Finocchiaro. Suspicious? WORST PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK: Attorney-General Christian Porter has to take the cake this week. Despite an overwhelming majority of Territorians agreeing, the federal member continues to deny the Territory the right to make its own laws when it comes to end of life. PUZZLING PRICE WHILE wandering Casuarina Square recently, Bushie came across this not-so-much discount on a puzzle. With the recommended retail price $2 cheaper, were wondering if anyone fell for the QBD Books deal.
