The towns­folk were not pleased to see part of the bush­land around Mia­ree Pool go­ing up in smoke last week­end.

What a shame, it was look­ing so nice. We left there just as it started. @Crack­erJack­Pad­dleS­ports

This is not good news for our lo­cal pool. @ThePaulJag­ger

Re­ports came out last week claim­ing em­ploy­ment in the min­ing sec­tor was on the rise again, but Pil­bara residents were scep­ti­cal of see­ing any of the ben­e­fits.

One of our ca­sual boil­er­mak­ers was sent an sms two weeks ago if avail­able for a lo­cal shut­down. He replied yes, once com­pany re­alised his lo­cal ad­dress he was re­jected as it was for “FIFO” po­si­tion only. Josh Bo­ord

I saw a job on SEEK for FIFO fit­ters and boil­er­mak­ers, on­go­ing po­si­tion. I rang Steel­cap for more info be­cause they said start ASAP with all tick­ets in­duc­tions. Turns out they only wanted lo­cal staff, which they ad­mit­ted they didn’t have and were will­ing to use me if I had my own ac­com­mo­da­tion. Craig Wood
