There was high praise for four Kar­ratha ju­nior soc­cer play­ers who have been scouted for a US soc­cer schol­ar­ship pro­gram.

Con­grats to all you boys. Hav­ing had the priv­i­lege and hon­our of coach­ing and be­ing associated with James (the rock) Ken­ton and Richard es­pe­cially, boys it was only a mat­ter of time be­fore you spread your wings and went on to greater heights. Leg­endary sta­tus. Nice work and well-de­served. Paul and Kim Low­icki Con­grat­u­la­tions boys, well done to you and all who helped to get you there. Fan­tas­tic. Mar­garet Wal­lis Awe­some job! Good to see hard work pays off. Kaz Parker

Greens Mem­ber for Min­ing and Pas­toral has in­tro­duced a draft Bill to State Par­lia­ment to stop the forced closure of Abo­rig­i­nal com­mu­ni­ties.

Well done Robin Chap­ple MLC for pre­par­ing this im­por­tant bill. It's shame­ful that an Act of Par­lia­ment is needed to pro­tect Abo­rig­i­nal com­mu­ni­ties in Western Aus­tralia. Laurinda Tim­mins I like go­ing to Ngur­rawaana com­mu­nity, it's a good place. Drew Water­man

It was re­vealed this month that a few fish­ing tape mea­sures had in­cor­rect mea­sure­ments which could leave an­glers un­wit­tingly in le­gal trou­ble.

Yea and I've had two dif­fer­ent crab gauges they were 5mm dif­fer­ent! Mathew Peters Should've got this ruler and your flatly could have been a me­tre! Paul Muir­head

Peo­ple were de­lighted to see the lo­cal wild­flower known as Emu Ex­port come out to play af­ter a bit of rain ear­lier this month.

Keep an eye out and get a few of these down you while you're rained off at work. Laura Sut­ton Pity the XXXX tree didn't flower. Peter Prior

Lithium has been touted as the next boom for the Pil­bara and a map of pegged ar­eas posted in an ar­ti­cle last week piqued peo­ple’s in­ter­est.

This is the fu­ture. Dar­ryl Young So how long is the wait re­ally. Paul Goofy Rix

We have a lot of sun here in the Pil­bara and the Kar­ratha Air­port is fi­nally set to ben­e­fit as work be­gins on a new so­lar farm.

About time they started clean en­ergy in this sun­burnt coun­try. Mick Shinn

A march in protest of the proposed Kin­tyre ura­nium mine has been or­gan­ised with more than 100 tra­di­tional own­ers ex­pected to at­tend.

“We want jobs, we want clean en­ergy, we want op­por­tu­ni­ties. What! Ura­nium! Stop the mines! Stop the mines!” @twocrows­down
