NT News - - OPINION -

1 YEAR AGO: AN NT News poll re­vealed 84 per cent of re­spon­dents were op­posed to the Ter­ri­tory Gov­ern­ment’s plan to build a new $50 mil­lion mu­seum at My­illy Point. Re­sults showed 816 peo­ple out of 970 polled did not sup­port the mu­seum, which was later scrapped.

5 YEARS AGO: THEN Sen­a­tor Nova Peris called for an in­de­pen­dent au­dit of Ranger Uranium Mine in Kakadu, fol­low­ing a ra­dioac­tive slurry spill. The spill, of up to 1.5 mil­lion litres, came from a failed leach tank dur­ing the week­end.

10 YEARS AGO: A MON­STER python has been found in a Ter­ri­tory fam­ily’s back­yard chicken pen munch­ing down a fully grown hen. The 2.7m water python, which tipped the scales at a hefty 4.6kg, had a bulging belly and could barely move af­ter eat­ing the live chook.
