Win­ter is com­ing

THE change of sea­sons can be per­ilous for na­tional com­pa­nies push­ing out their stock and co-or­di­nat­ing their ad­ver­tis­ing. There’s noth­ing more frus­trat­ing than suf­fer­ing a plug­ger blowout and not be­ing able to re­place them be­cause the shops are stock­ing noth­ing but ugg boots. Bun­nings is the lat­est to fall vic­tim — the hard­ware chain has been ad­ver­tis­ing a sen­sa­tional dis­count on bathroom heat lamps in Dar­win where it’s still 33C.

Ra­zor wire frowned upon

THE Law So­ci­ety’s mag­a­zine, Bal­ance isn’t ex­actly a grip­ping read. How­ever, deep in this month’s edi­tion is an ar­ti­cle by Ward Keller lawyer Alecia How­land which might ac­tu­ally res­onate with the av­er­age punter on the street. The ti­tle is: “Can I use barbed wire or ra­zor wire on the fence of my res­i­den­tial prop­erty?” The an­swer, in short, is that “home­own­ers might be wise to con­sider al­ter­na­tive op­tions to im­prove the se­cu­rity of their premises ...”

Wel­come to NT, brus

DAR­WIN new­bie Zac Nor­ris took to Ter­ri­tory’s wis­est this week to an­swer the big ques­tions. Post­ing in pop­u­lar Face­book page ‘Dar­win NT Buy, Sell, Swap & Wanted’ on Tues­day, Zac asked: “Just a cou­ple quick ques­tions haven’t been In Dar­win too long beau­ti­ful place. Why does every­one call me brus? And why doesn’t any­one here wear de­odor­ant?” An­other right of pas­sage, Zac, brus, is ap­pear­ing in Bushranger for say­ing some­thing silly on­line.

Gosling just doesn’t rate

LA­BOR’S win­ning mem­ber for Solomon

Luke Gosling’s Google rat­ing leaves a bit to be de­sired. The page ‘Luke Gosling — Fed­eral Mem­ber for Solomon’ has just one re­view, for one star. The re­view, from ‘lo­cal guide’, said Luke, “Doesn’t re­spond to in­quiries from the pub­lic ... Just col­lect­ing the salary.”

Let’s re­hearse it next time

CHARLES Dar­win Univer­sity’s first grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony with new chan­cel­lor Paul

Hen­der­son didn’t go as smoothly as planned. The fan­fare used to in­tro­duce the deans, pro­fes­sors and au­thor­i­ties of the univer­sity was played twice af­ter no­body ap­peared the first time. Mr Hen­der­son lost his page in his script a few times and many stu­dents for­got to tip their hats when re­ceiv­ing their pa­pers. Maybe a re­hearsal was needed.

Smart money on hemp

PALMER­STON coun­cil has been get­ting some in­ter­est­ing feed­back from its con­stituents, ea­ger to push their mes­sage at any op­por­tu­nity. Three pieces of feed­back put to coun­cil’s al­co­hol man­age­ment pol­icy were heard on Tues­day night — two sug­gested coun­cil im­prove their web­site and the third sug­gest­ing coun­cil in­vests in hemp prod­ucts. No word yet on whether coun­cil in­tends to in­vest in hemp.

Where the hell are we?

THEY say change is as good as a hol­i­day but for Dar­win lo­cals, that’s not al­ways the case. At Mindil Beach Sun­set Mar­kets on Thurs­day, the lo­ca­tion of stalls was mixed up from their nor­mal spots, pro­vid­ing con­fu­sion for some hun­gry lo­cals. With the launch of Dar­win Coun­cil’s new Street Food Map this week, it might be help­ful to in­clude a map of where stalls will be at the mar­ket to stop any hanger from oc­cur­ring.
