There was a mixed re­sponse to Kar­ratha’s new up­per-floor Qan­tas Lounge open­ing last week.

Great im­prove­ment on the last one. Would be nice if we had a real cof­fee ma­chine like the city lounges. Natalie Singe

I think the dress code will keep most peo­ple out. Thongs, board­ies and t-shirts need not ap­ply. Adrian Lemke

We don’t care about a new lounge! We care about cheaper flights! Tracey Colomer

A pe­ti­tion to move a pro­posed men­tal health step-up, step-down fa­cil­ity has been do­ing the rounds on­line. The cur­rent site is across the road from a li­censed venue

and a pri­mary school. Why are peo­ple so fright­ened of men­tal ill­ness? Three out of five peo­ple will ex­pe­ri­ence the symp­toms in their life­time. Get com­fort­able with it. Martin Burt

My only is­sue is the De­part­ment of Health have a huge cam­pus in the town cen­tre. Would it not make more sense there if it is for in­ten­sive sup­port. If it is a low-care fa­cil­ity, any house in town will do nicely. Carolyn Biar

A plan is un­der­foot to turn Cos­sack into a liv­ing his­tor­i­cal vil­lage af­ter Ngar­luma Yind­jibarndi Foun­da­tion took over man­age­ment and pro­mo­tion of the ghost town.

It’s cur­rently so un­der­utilised it’s a

shame, it’s a fas­ci­nat­ing place but just left to go to waste cur­rently. Seems the plan is to show­case both the in­dige­nous and non-in­dige­nous her­itage of the area which is won­der­ful. Camille Bar­ton

So does that mean there’s go­ing to be white men with Abo­rig­i­nal women and kids in chains walk­ing around? Be­cause my mob were the slave divers who were forced to dive for pearls and were bought and sold as as­sets of the boats. Tyson Mowarin
