Gregory’s Gorge has been closed for a year now. When we asked for an up­date, Yind­jibarndi Abo­rig­i­nal Cor­po­ra­tion has ques­tioned why the public needs to know.

It is on their land and they were happy to share un­til peo­ple trashed it. Ev­ery­one who went there and didn’t re­spect the place or pay their camp­ing fee is to blame. Carolyn Biar

Just head out there any­way. Last time I checked I am Aus­tralian, and have the same rights as ev­ery­one else, or did that law change? Rod­ney Camp­bell

The cor­po­ra­tion no doubt re­ceives gov­ern­ment fund­ing to fur­ther any projects or pro­pos­als, and they need to be open and ac­count­able for the de­ci­sions made. Just as they would ex­pect any gov­ern­ment agency or pri­vate cor­po­ra­tion to be if they were be­ing cut off. Toni Marie

I re­mem­ber go­ing out there of­ten in the late 90s and early 2000 and it was spec­tac­u­lar! Such a real shame. Ranae Hawes Duck­worth

I haven’t been able to get out there yet and heard great things. I hope they re­open soon so I get the chance. Pretty an­noyed they can just close off a part of the Pil­bara that should be able to be en­joyed for so long. Bek Bor­lase

I hope their plans come to fruition so that the rich cul­ture can be ex­pe­ri­enced by ev­ery­one. Be great to see a cor­ro­boree and bush tucker. An­thony An­der­son

The spot price of iron ore went above $US90 a tonne last week for the first time in two years. There were mixed re­ac­tions.

That’s why these multi­bil­lion-dol­lar com­pa­nies should pay real taxes. Tom Ivi­son

And they’re still cry­ing poor and cut­ting wages. Brad Roberts

They sacked ev­ery­one be­fore the ex­tra levy talk. Craig Moore

So much for the “ed­u­cated” busi­ness an­a­lysts who pre­dicted a sub $40 per tonne for the next five years. An­dre Olivier

Pref­er­ence deals have cer­tainly been in­ter­est­ing this month. The Lib­eral Party put One Na­tion ahead of the Na­tion­als in the Up­per House, then the Na­tion­als put the Greens above Lib­eral in Min­ing and Pas­toral.

It’s no bloody won­der peo­ple don’t trust politi­cians. They’re all wheel­ing and deal­ing with each other and we’ll end up with the same bull­shit. Ju­lia Hud­son

Think I’ll take the fine, the whole lot are crap. Nigel Mor­gan

At what point do we ex­pect our lead­ers to do deals in the best in­ter­est of our State rather than them­selves and their own power/money/in­flu­ence? Carolyn Biar

I think West Aus­tralians feel they’ve been cheated by this Gov­ern­ment. Time to make a fresh start. Julie Pearse

We shared a pic­ture from Pil­bara Work­ing Dogs of one of their kelpies tak­ing a nap in­side the fridge and it seems it’s not the only dog to take up this op­tion.

Ali­son Sor­rell shared this photo from her Face­book. Her dog found the food shelf in the fridge.
