Long way to go for fried chook

Chook run

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.

Butted birds

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.

Green ma­chine

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.
