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
