News of Pil­bara MLA Bren­don Grylls’ rapid takeover of the WA Na­tion­als lead­er­ship and plans for sal­vaging the State Bud­get were met with mixed re­views.

Bren­don Grylls does a great job ... he should go na­tional. Pa­trick Moloney

Go for it Bren­don! Get some fire in the s...storm down there to sort them all out! Dave McGowan

I'm over pol­i­tics and politi­cians. Julie Lowther

Just get the tape mea­sure out it'll be quicker. Dren­nan Gale

Dampier cel­e­brated 50 years as a town last week and a Rio Tinto his­tor­i­cal ex­hi­bi­tion brought out lo­cal nostal­gia.

We ar­rived in Wick­ham 1972. Town was only 6 months old. Not all the ac­com­mo­da­tion was ready when we first ar­rived. Vanessa Evans

Sur­veyed the place when it was just rocks and spinifex. Ian Rogers

Hump­back whales are lov­ing Pil­bara wa­ters at the mo­ment and we are only too glad to watch them.

We saw 3 sep­a­rate lots and 2 out of the 3 had calves that we would see! Sooo amaz­ing!! Casey Jane Milnes

Ya I'll never for­get the ex­pe­ri­ence we had out fish­ing and how close these whales get and to go back the next year to have the same ex­pe­ri­ence if not bet­ter. Very spe­cial time. Julie Haste

Dampier ... never dis­ap­points. Tracey Ste­wart Long-term Kar­ratha res­i­dent and Coles meat man­ager John Rose and his wife Ann had plenty of well-wish­ers for their new life in Wa­roona.

All the best John to you and Ann, I have fond mem­o­ries of work­ing as your butch­ers as­sis­tant back in the early days. Dun­can Ab­botts

Have a won­der­ful re­tire­ment John and Ann. Wa­roona is a lovely town. Tr­ish Ch­esters
