Give her­itage more re­spect

Pilbara News - - Pilbara Opinion - Mar­tyn Byrne, Roe­bourne

I wrote to the ed­i­tor last year about the woe­ful at­ti­tude of the Shire or so-called big City of Kar­ratha about the ne­glect shown to­wards the her­itage build­ings of Roe­bourne.

They are im­por­tant to the re­gion and na­tional trea­sures.

I sup­pose they will fall down be­fore the bu­reau­crats get off their bums to re­alise how much they spend on them­selves in­stead of the real things that we can re­flect our his­tory upon.

Stop hand-balling the is­sue like a piece of un­wanted garbage.

Min­ing is not the be all and end all.

Maybe tourism could play a big part of our rev­enue.
