The Robe River Ku­ruma peo­ple were con­grat­u­lated af­ter win­ning a 20-year fight to gain na­tive ti­tle over their lands last week.

Old boy would have been proud. His coun­try that Sil­ver­grass. Marawaru coun­try Bobby’s and Alexan­der. So happy for you all. Sad he is not with us to see that. Thanks be to those that passed be­fore and handed the sto­ries down from Marawaru’s line, bless­ings to you all. Cherry Alexan­der Aren't tra­di­tional Abo­rig­i­nal prac­tices on the land guar­an­teed un­der the WA State con­sti­tu­tion? They shouldn't have needed a bat­tle over land rights for this. Adrian Lemke It's not fair that Abo­rig­i­nal peo­ple have to fight for so long for their land. Carol Knowles

While Kar­ratha res­i­dents were some­what scep­ti­cal about the need for a sec­ond shop­ping precinct at Tam­brey, there was no de­bate about whether or not Wood­side should be hous­ing its staff in town.

Whether or not a sec­ond shop­ping precinct is needed, Wood­side and all other re­source com­pa­nies should be com­mit­ted to hous­ing em­ploy­ees in the towns they op­er­ate in. An­drew Smith If they need a camp for FIFO why can't they use the ex­ist­ing one on Bal­moral Road? Julia Hud­son Is Kar­ratha even big enough to have two shop­ping cen­tres? Well if it’s not ratepay­ers’ money so be it. Juanita Wi­neera

The peo­ple of In­sta­gram and Twit­ter were pretty ex­cited about the Spoil­bank Ma­rina an­nounce­ment made just up the road last month.

Would be great if a swim­ming area was in­cor­po­rated also. @Unio­nandy Per­fect spot for fu­ture North West Fest! @vronkev

We asked whether you were an ”it’s too hot” or an “it’s not even hot” per­son this sum­mer on Face­book and got a pretty even re­sponse.

What are you talk­ing about, it’s still bloody cool! CJ Walker The one that lived here for 20 years and is sur­prised by the heat ever year! Bring hot days and beer at 8am. Ja­clyn Ni­choll Yeah it is warm­ing up but not sure how I'll go when it is get­ting hot again. Carolyn Biar I am the other, it is bloody hot in the Pil­bara. Diane Brooks
