Shirley Shackleton passing through Darwin this week on the way to Dili in connection with the proposed film about the murder of the Balibo 5 and Roger East by the invading Indonesian forces .
Suggest the Northern Territory News UFO reporter come down to earth and , along with other Darwin media , check on the near 17 year battle by Shirley Collins to be recompensed for her ruinous part in the badly arranged by the Australian government of the Bank of America Tour Down Under of the USA in the lead up to the Sydney Olympics .
The Genealogical Society of the Northern Territory is being relocated from its Cavenagh Street premises to 84 Smith Street , near the Chinatown carpark . Because of the move, the library will close July 26. Any local journalists who care to venture into the GSNT on a regular basis and ask questions will discover that it has a thousand untold stories which can be written by other than historians . A News mugwump once complained bitterly about the high cost of getting an historian to write material about the NT 's colourful past when the obvious answer was to get reporters to stop chasing endless yarns about crocodiles, UFOs , crackers up clacker , etc. and exercise real writing and investigative skills to write the pieces themselves .
