I started using ice when I was 16, and
I’ve now been clean for 10 months.
Drug addiction can be conquered.
You’ve just got to be ready and willing
to put in the hard yards to get there.
There are services that can offer support
and information to help you cut down
or stop using ice altogether – you don’t
have to do this alone.
It is now illegal to sell regular unleaded fuel in the Tennant Creek and Katherine regions.
Low aromatic fuel is available to use instead.
Low aromatic fuel is a similar price and can be used in the same engines as regular unleaded fuel.
Low aromatic unleaded fuel has a proven track record. It has been sold in Alice Springs since
2005 and is now available in over 150 locations nationally.
This change has been made under the Low Aromatic Fuel Act 2013 to reduce petrol sniffing
and make the region safer and healthier for everyone.
If you have any concerns regarding low aromatic fuel please call the Viva Energy (Shell)
helpline on 13 16 18.
For more information on the Low Aromatic Fuel Act 2013 or low aromatic unleaded fuel visit

THE successful campaign to
stop the construction of a na-
tional nuclear waste dump at
Muckaty is the foundation of
a new national push against
its construction in other com-
Traditional owners, Indigenous
leaders, pastoralists, and the local
community rallied against the Com-
monwealth Government’s proposal
in a seven-year battle, challenging
the process at a Federal Court hear-
ing during which the nomination of
Muckaty as a site was withdrawn by
the Northern Land Council.
Representatives of the six regional
communities under consideration for
the waste dump gathered in Canberra
this week to lobby the Government
to make a decision based on science.
Business owner and Indigenous
woman Loyola Jones lives near
the proposed Aridgold Farm, 75km
outside of Alice Springs.
She told the Tennant Times that the
battle by the community surrounding
Muckaty was the foundation for the
new campaign, adding she hoped
the Federal Government’s new push
would not divide other communities
the it had in the Barkly.
“The Northern Territory should not
be where nuclear waste dumps come
to die,” she said.
In November last year, Resource
Minister Josh Frydenberg named
three sites in South Australia and
one each in New South Wales,
Queensland and the Northern Terri-
tory as potential locations for a facil-
ity where low level radioactive waste
would be buried and intermediate
level waste stored above ground.
“Each week the Australian Nuclear
Sue Woolford lives near the two
proposed Kimba sites in SA.
“We come from very different parts
of Australia, but we share a common
concern,” she said.
“We do not want to see this mate-
rial moved into any of our regions
where we live, work and raise our
families. We are coming together as
a community for our communities.”
Mr Frydenberg is expected to nar-
row the list following the closure
of the public comment this month.
A site is expected to be selected by
the end of this year.
“Officials from my department
have held many meetings with the
shortlisted communities and have
visited each community at least
twice, and in most cases three or
more times,” Mr Frydenberg said
“The outcomes and feedback of
this initial consultation process
will help inform the Government’s
consideration of the next phase of
detailed assessment, which will
involve further community consul-
tation, technical assessment, and a
shortlist of two to three sites.
“In selecting the final site, we will
consider a range of views within
the community, including from
residents, stakeholders and local
organisations. Ultimately we are
looking for a site which has broad
based community support.”
“This process has been completely
back to front. Picking sites first and
then consulting with the affected
communities makes no sense,” said
Robyn Rayner from Hill End, NSW.
“We are calling on the government
to hear us as we are not going to
Muckaty fight paves
way for new battles
