Long way to go for fried chook
The downturn has hit many aspects of Pilbara life, but one thing that perseveres is the infamous chicken run.
The chicken run is undertaken by Hedland residents so keen for KFC they drive to Karratha just to get their feed. Last week Jodie Gandolfo informed her mates she was heading to Karratha and of course she ended up with a large shopping list to take to the colonel. How large you ask? $300. That’s a lot of deep-fried chicken.
You’ve gotta hand it to Pilbarians, when it comes to paying respect to the almighty running bird, we really are a cut above the rest.
Last week Wickham’s Rambla Bar showed off its newest addition — Emu Export ash trays.
These re-purposed export cans follow a long and proud tradition of Pilbara emu paraphernalia, such as the giant can on Anchovy Flats and the Kimberley cool-painted Zook.
It takes a special kind of person to steal a car with the owner’s phone number, face, name and company logo on it.
So when Greens Member for Mining and Pastoral Robin Chapple found his beloved troopie had been stolen, he had every right to be miffed.
Mr Chapple’s car was eventually found, so we can expect to see it soon.
