Home' Tennant and District Times : 2015-1113 TDT Contents I WOULD like to endorse the re-
marks expressed in “Our Tennant
is up the creek” (TDT 6/11/15).
I would encourage members of the
public to express their concerns in writ-
ing to our elected Federal and Territory
members of Parliament.
I received a very favourable response
from the Hon. Bess Price after writing
about concerns regarding local govern-
ment issues. Special thanks to Danny
and the Work Camp crew who worked
furiously to ensure the swimming pool
complex was ready for opening.

TENNANT Creek pas-
sengers who arrived
at Alice Springs Air-
port on an Airnorth
flight triggered a se-
curity alert after they
were allowed through
the wrong arrival
gate into a security
The incident, at noon
last Friday during peak
time, caused flight delays
to Sydney and Adelaide
because the unscreened
passengers from Tennant
Creek had mixed with
screened passengers ready
to board the southbound
NT Airports Manager
Dave Batic explained that
passengers from Tennant
Creek are classified as
‘unscreened’ because there
is no security equipment at
“Qantas ground staff in-
advertently allowed them
to enter into a security
screened area of the air-
port,” he said.
“It wasn’t a serious is-
sue as far as we were
concerned but we had
to make sure passengers
“Maintaining our secu-
rity layers is our first prior-

opportunity to remind ev-

EACH week the Tennant Times is distributed throughout the Barkly
courtesy of local MLA Gerry McCarthy.
Schools, stations and communities all receive copies of the paper.
The woman behind spreading the good news is Rayleen Butcher (pictured) and
she loves her new job as the administration support worker at the electorate office.
Having to spend four days a week at the renal unit means Rayleen can’t work full
time but she says she just loves going into work part time, making sure the papers
are ready for the mail plane.
Rayleen lives in a shared assisted living environment with her two daughters. She
also has a son who lives in Mount Isa.
She loves to socialise and hopes to join the Memo and Sporties clubs soon.

HORIZONTAL rain and hail were the most
remarkable features of a massive thunder-
storm that struck Ali Curung on Monday last
A cedar tree fell across a fence and onto the road
(pictured) while an old gum tree fell across power
lines behind the school.
Dozens of branches were ripped off trees and debris
was strewn throughout the community.
Arlpwe Art and Culture Centre manager Ian Grieve
said residents were pretty worried.
“It was a fierce storm for sure,” he said.
“The wind was blowing like you wouldn’t believe.
“The storm seemed to come from nowhere during
the evening, it started towards south of the commu-
nity, circled around town to the east then swung to
the north and bore down.
“It was quite amazing.”
Council and Arlpwe employees collaborated in a
clean up effort that took two days.
