Images of aban­doned and his­toric build­ings have been whet­ting trav­ellers’ ap­petite to come over to our neck of the woods on In­sta­gram re­cently. Lovely! I re­ally want to go to the Pil­bara.

Read­ers were a lit­tle scep­ti­cal about a Cham­ber of Min­er­als and En­er­gy­backed sur­vey show­ing WA Na­tion­als leader Bren­don Grylls was at risk of los­ing the Pil­bara seat due to his min­ing tax pro­posal. Wow, such an ob­jec­tive sur­vey by the miners which amaz­ingly re­flects the out­come they de­sire. Who would’ve thought? How about an au­dited and im­par­tial poll next time. James Cut­field I took the poll and the ques­tions were pretty ob­jec­tive. Amanda Bau­chop Well he’s look­ing a bit of a chump at the mo­ment so who knows. Ju­lia Hud­son Big busi­ness dic­tat­ing to Govern­ment. Sean Maxey 300 re­spon­dents not ex­actly a size­able sam­ple is it. Alexan­der Wa­ters Fi­nally some­one has the b .... , and will­ing­ness to put them on the line, in the chance that we, the WA peo­ple, can get an ex­tra few dol­lars for our rocks.

I’d think the min­ing com­pa­nies get a bit more for our ore than in the 1960s. I would like to be pay­ing 60s rents! We pay 2016 prices, why can’t they? Chris Lally

The in­au­gu­ral Dampier Billy Cart Derby was a huge suc­cess, with more than 50 en­trants tak­ing to the streets in their homemade ma­chines. Great day, so much family fun. Well done to the vol­un­teers and or­gan­is­ers. Great job to the Dampier bowls club for lunch. Liz McCutcheon Awe­some guys, great work. Su­san Con­cha Looks ter­rific. Good clean fun. MadJack Milne Many vari­a­tions of carts, one looked like part of a shop­ping trol­ley. Brave to do that as they of­ten only go where they want. Pam Alan Wil­liamson

The Pil­bara Re­gional Coun­cil said it would fi­nally be tak­ing steps to im­prove the Warlu Way, start­ing with defin­ing what it ac­tu­ally is. It’s a way of get­ting vis­i­tors lost around the North West ha ha. @KRSH73 Sig­nage needs to use the ap­pro­pri­ate lan­guage word for snake/ser­pent as route goes through dif­fer­ent ar­eas of Ngurra. Warlu means snake in Yind­jibarndi and Ngar­luma but in other ar­eas their lan­guage term is dif­fer­ent. JR Hicks
