A flight from Port Hed­land to Perth was an hour late last week af­ter an in­tox­i­cated man re­fused to fol­low in­struc­tions from the flight crew.

If it was a FIFO worker, take them to the air­port with just enough time to book in and board! Shone Wise

Will Hed­land’s Mayor and Twiggy take that to our PM? Maybe pay them in ba­sic cards so they can’t buy al­co­hol? An­gela Wil­mot Time to refuse board­ing and/or sup­ply of al­co­hol to some peo­ple, duty of care to the flight at­ten­dants and fel­low pas­sen­gers. Kevin San­ders

Play “dis­ap­pears” from school class­rooms, warns ex­pert.

All for play-based learn­ing for kindy and pre-pri­mary! Too much pres­sure on teach­ers and stu­dents to get “re­sults” and we miss the amaz­ing amount of learn­ing that takes place through play. Kids have years ahead of them to learn to read and write. Kindy and pre-pri­mary should not be the place for the for­mal teach­ing of this. Brid­get Te­sar

If you were hop­ing Hed­land was go­ing to get the cash­less wel­fare card next, you'll be dis­ap­pointed. But op­po­nents of the idea won't be re­joic­ing ei­ther.

Ap­par­ently the vi­o­lence, ac­cord­ing to hos­pi­tal re­ports, went down but crime rates went up in th­ese ar­eas. Cor­re­la­tion to what the fac­tors are needs more stud­ies. Al­co­hol re­stric­tions proved bet­ter in places such as Fitzroy who have col­lected data over last few years. Also I know a few wa­jalas in Man­durah and Rock­hamp­ton who need this card cause their kids suf­fer too. Rec­om­mend they take it there next to all re­cip­i­ents of wel­fare.

They tried to have it here in Gero, but the non-indige­nous peo­ple on ben­e­fits out­num­bered the indige­nous and kicked up about it. Need­less to say it was knocked on the head. Leanne Clarke
