Tyson Mowarin took this photo of the Catholic Church in Roebourne on the side of Mt Welcome. Tyson took it a few weeks ago at around midnight when he saw the lightning and thunderstorm heading towards Karratha on the coast from Whim Creek. “That’s when I went up there because the storm was in the right position to be in the background. “I used a technique called light painting, where the camera is on a long exposure and i just paint things i want to expose, with a torch beam.” You can view more of Tyson’s photos on tyson1978/ Tyson used a Canon 5D

Wildlife watch: Mains Frog By Jenny Fox Now we’ve had a few inches of rain the burrowing frogs are out and about. The Pilbara is home to several species of burrowing frogs and toads but the one featured this week is the Main’s frog so named after Professor Burt Main of the University of Western Australia. The one in the photo is rather engorged with water and can be identified by the faint white line running along the spine. It’s an abundant, moderate sized and rotund water holding frog that inhabits some of the harshest country in the the arid regions of Western Australia. They are found on flood plains and short lived bodies of water and around temporary water courses or stream beds. These frogs emerge to procreate as soon as the ground becomes saturated. It is noted that in some environmental situations the tadpoles can change to frogs within a 14 day cycle, due to the

higher water temperature in the puddles and the evaporation rate. As the water dries up the frogs burrow back into the soil and depending on species, can go as far down as a meter. They then encase themselves in a water tight bag that prevents them from drying out between rainfalls and there they wait till the next seasonal falls (which can be years between). Once the ground becomes wet again the frog eats its surrounding cocoon and emerges to find a mate and start the cycle all over again. People with swimming pools will often find these frogs in the pool and skimmer box after the rains. I’m sure there are people reading this that have dug them up while digging the 600mm holes for patio or shade posts sometimes unintentionally chopping them in half with the shovel. These little creatures can make quite a

Karratha pub linked to missing person A Karratha pub has been linked to the murder case of missing Melbourne barmaid Elisabeth Membrey. Shane Andrew Bond has been accused of murdering Ms Membrey and disposing of her body, his former housemate, Daniel Riera has told the Victorian Supreme Court Mr Riera, who lived and worked briefly with Bond in Karratha told the court that he overheard Bond bragging about the act to a friend at a Karratha pub in late 2008. Mr Riera said Bond had told another man that he killed Ms Membrey by punching her, causing her to fall and strike her head on a coffee table. “He was going on about how he had tried to pick this girl up at a bar... they went to either his or her house for a few drinks... he must’ve thought he was getting somewhere and put a move on and she hit him and he hit her back,’’ Mr Riera told the court via videolink. Mr Riera said Bond referred to another unknown man who had helped him dispose of the body. Ms Membrey was last seen leaving work at the Manhattan Hotel in Ringwood, in Melbourne’s east, on December 6, 1994. Prosecutors allege she was attacked by Bond in her Ringwood flat. Her body has never been found. Bond has pleaded not guilty to murdering Ms Membrey. The trial is continuing before Justice Terry Forrest.

Regardless of how you feel about frogs, it’s important to remember that in most areas the frog population reflects how healthy the environment around us is, so matter how annoying these little creatures are, they are an important part of our world.

Howlett geared to grill Grylls By Elise Batchelor It’s no secret anymore! Passionate Port Hedland Mayor Kelly Howlett has formally announced her intention to run for pre-selection as Pilbara’s Labor candidate in next year’s state election. It’s a surefire chance the north west will see Ms Howlett up against Royalties for Regions pioneer Brendon Grylls, who is leaving his safe Wheatbelt seat to run as a Nationals candidate for the Pilbara also. Pending Ms Howlett’ s pre-selection success, north west residents will have the chance to vote for a candidate who actually lives here. “I’m running because I’ve made my home here for the past 13 years and I genuinely care about the people in my community,” Ms Howlett said. “The people and decision makers in Perth don’t know what it’s like to live and work in the Pilbara.” Ms Howlett is known to many residents for her integral awareness of day to day local and regional issues through pervasive use of social media site Facebook, through which she generates ongoing dialogue with community members. Formally a Greens member, she said part of her reasoning for the political move has been frustration with not getting traction on issues such as indigenous welfare, homelessness and the ability of locals to set up and build a small business successfully. “I want to make sure the Pilbara is represented by someone who understands,” Ms Howlett said. Over 13 years, Ms Howlett has developed several new town initiatives and she holds board positions with many Pilbara groups, advocating for women, education, the environment, regional development and tourism. In a recent ABC interview, Mr Grylls was buoyant with enthusiasm regarding his relationship with Pilbara towns and Royalties for Regions, which is pouring millions into the north west. He also indicated that with young children of his own with whom he’s travelled in the Pilbara, he’s well placed to understand the needs of young families here. However, Mr Grylls’ response to whether he’d move to the north west should he win the Pilbara seat in the 2013 vote was evasive, if not somewhat confusing. “I look forward to not counting my eggs before they hatch,” he said, notwithstanding it’s the chickens, not the eggs he’ll be waiting to count. In any case, both potential candidates no doubt hope to see voters emerge from their political shells and make a noise.

WA’s growing pains require urgent medical attention. Over the next 30 years our population is set to double. WA is the fastest growing state in the nation and forecasts indicate we’ll need a significant number of new doctors over the next 10 years to cope with the growing demand on our healthcare system.

We want to help by opening a medical school at Curtin University in 2014. Curtin University has submitted a proposal for a medical school to the federal government. Now we need your support to ensure this essential training facility is established here, for the benefit of the entire Western Australian community.

Why Curtin University? • Our proposed school wouldn’t duplicate existing degrees in WA. We would offer a new way of educating medical students, and provide the only five-year direct-entry undergraduate medicine degree in our state. This would result in more doctors in the workforce sooner. • We would address doctor shortages in rural and regional WA. Our proposal includes establishing a number of clinical schools in priority rural and regional locations across the state. • We already have a strong history in health education. Curtin teaches most of the allied professionals in WA, and we are currently leading the way in providing a team-based approach to teaching that will improve patient safety and quality of care. • We would provide more choice for those wishing to study medicine in WA. Without Curtin’s proposed medical school, school leavers would need to move interstate to commence a medical degree straight away, and that could mean fewer doctors for WA in the future.

How you can help. Help us show the federal government that you support Curtin University’s proposed medical school here in WA. Visit or call 08 9266 3985 and register your support by 31 March 2012. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter, and share our message with your friends, family and community. Make tomorrow better.

What do you call a shaved female cricketer who goes surfing, having been called out for LBW at an overseas match? A bold bald bowled broad aboard a board abroad. The World’s Greatest Shave is happening all over the Pilbara, with people shaving their heads to raise money and awareness for Leukaemia. This includes the lovely Lisa Bowen…another B word. Good on you all! It’s a fabulous look.

The ‘B’ word Bold, Bare, Brave And Beneficial too. A Buzz cut breezy No, not a bad booboo

Were you blonde? Or black or beige, brunette? It’s been so long I’m baffled I basically forget.

Misadventures of dating in the Pilbara By Pilbara Romeo “I was engaged two years ago. But, you know, he dumped me on Valentine’s Day because he realised he was gay,” she said between mouthfuls of corn chips. Can’t say I blame him, poor bloke. I had tried internet dating before but decided to give it one more shot. I lined up a date with a girl who seemed promising. She had a good job, loved the outdoors, was looking for a serious relationship and appeared to have only a healthy level of interest in cats. I scanned the bar, looking for my e-date. She looked nothing like her picture. Her athletic build was not that of any athlete I’d ever seen compete. Her face was somewhat wider than her picture portrayed. She was supposed to be twenty-six; she was twenty-six about fifteen years ago. Lucky she found me as I didn’t even recognise her.

Ever the gentleman I ordered us a couple of drinks. From that moment on it was quite clear she was totally in love with herself. Between the gay ex-fiancé and her string of other failed relationships, I didn’t get a word in most of the night. She only paused her tale of inappropriate sexual partners to reply to a text message. The whole time I stared at her trying to find where that cute picture had gone. There it was, back in her uni days; a lifetime of bad choices and Winnie Blue’s had taken their toll. By this point she’s talking about taking a holiday together and how, ‘Virgos and Capricorns are made for each other’, and how it’s, ‘so weird’ that she used to be in trade sales and I’m a tradesman, ‘so we’ve probably talked to each other on the phone before without even knowing...<giggle>’ As she leant over to eat my chips, I saw what she was doing. We had moved passed getting to know each other and straight onto the picking food off the other person’s plate phase. I remember why I don’t date girls off the internet – it’s because they eat my chips.

New prisoner worker camp • Some of the partners working towards the production of the Nickol and Madigan Road dwellings

More residential land for Karratha By Courtney Bertling Last week, Lands Minister Brendon Grylls announced that more residential land for Karratha is now underway. The development at Nickol and Madigan Road will eventually yield more than 1200 lots. Mr Grylls marked the start of the development of 369 dwellings on 24ha of land in Nickol by the company Otan Property Funds Management. “LandCorp will work closely with Otan to develop the land and bring it to the Karratha market, with earthworks expected to start in the next few months,” Mr Grylls said. “A key aspect of the Otan development will be the provision of affordable housing, and a diverse range of housing options to cater to the changing residential needs of Karratha. “Otan will create 220 lots sized about 550sqm for traditional homes as well as 89 grouped dwellings and a site which can be developed for up to 60 apartments. “This project is yet more evidence of the success of the State Government’s Pilbara Cities initiative to attract more private developers to the Pilbara.” Otan managing director Mark Butler said that this is a very exciting project for them. Mr Butler said that they are not going to be the one to fix all the

problems with prices of rent, housing or land but we are going to put their best foot forward to deliver this project as fast as they can, delivering for the people that want to live here in the Pilbara. “Rio have been very good to help us off with the first part, but there are two thirds of the project for working mums and dads to continue on the dream of the Pilbara Cities,” Rio Tinto has signed an agreement to purchase 100 four-bedroom houses and land packages. Rio Tinto chief executive Sam Walsh said the agreement demonstrated the company’s ongoing commitment to maintaining a predominantly residential employee base for its coastal operations and supports the Pilbara Cities vision to grow Karratha to a large regional city. Earthworks are also under way for the first 148 lots in Stage 1A of LandCorp’s newest estate Madigan Road, a 68ha parcel of land next to Baynton West in Karratha. With sales expected to commence later this year, the Madigan Road development will offer a range of lot sizes and housing options, providing affordable and diverse housing options. Consisting of more than 1,000 residential and mixed-use lots, the new development will include a mixed-use commercial precinct main street, which will connect with the new town centre.

A new work camp aimed at rehabilitating offenders through valuable community work is to be built at Roebourne. Corrective Services Minister Terry Redman and Regional Development and Lands Minister Brendon Grylls said the Royalties for Regions-funded facility would adjoin and be managed by Roebourne Regional Prison. Mr Redman said the work camp would provide prisoners with enhanced opportunities to develop job skills while improving the local community. “Work camps have been operating successfully in Western Australia since 1998 when the first was opened at Walpole,” Mr Redman said. “Since then, work camps have opened at Wyndham, Warburton and Dowerin and $20million of Royalties for Regions funding has been allocated to enhance these camps.” The Roebourne camp will see 30 lowrisk prisoners undertake conservation, maintenance and construction projects for the Roebourne community. This adds 30 beds to the prison system. Mr Grylls said the projects undertaken through work camps were immeasurable in their benefits to local communities and an effective way to reintegrate prisoners before their release. “Work camps also provide the additional benefit of keeping indigenous prisoners ‘in country’, close to their home and family,” he said. “Not only do communities appreciate being part of making a positive difference, but they in turn have their local amenities, environment and services enhanced. “The work camp is an important part of transition of prisoners back into the workforce.” The Roebourne Work Camp is at design stage and expected to take 12 months to build.

Lazy Lands proponents Lands Minister Brendon Grylls announced the successful proponents for a number of sites in Karratha as part of the State Government’s Lazy Lands residential infill project. The Lazy Lands project, which is run across the Pilbara, involves identifying vacant, useable Crown land and making it available to the private market for residential development. “As part of the Pilbara Cities Vision, this will help in meeting the Pilbara’s housing needs to 2015,” Mr Grylls said. The Minister said that in Karratha the Lazy Lands project was being delivered in three stages, and Expressions of Interest (EOIs) were sought for seven sites. Six sites have been awarded and one site would be readvertised.

“I’m pleased to announce that the successful proponents for the six sites in Karratha are Questus, Sulcon, Blue Waters Development Corporation and Big Wig Enterprises,” he said. “Big Wig Enterprises, who have been awarded three of the sites, are a consortium of local tradespeople, business owners and professionals, and this demonstrates the continued growth of the local economy. “The EOI criteria focused on affordability and urban design, and the successful submissions propose the development of up to 91 dwellings with a mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes. “This increased access to housing will see more families being able to settle permanently in the region.”

Bus car park upgrades at Karratha airport Work to upgrade the bus only parking area at Karratha Airport will start on Thursday, March 23. The project will include sealing of the car park, drainage upgrades and the installation of lighting at the car park and along the walkway to the terminal. Shire of Roebourne Chief Executive Officer Collene Longmore said improvements to the car park were needed to ensure the many large buses, which frequently transferred passengers to and from the airport, had access to an adequate parking facility.

“The bus only parking area is located east of the public Long Term A parking area and, once completed, will mean buses can continue to park in close proximity to the terminal but without disrupting the flow of other traffic and airport users,” Ms Longmore said. “During construction, public parking areas will not be affected by these works. “However, a section of the Long Term B parking area will be closed off for use as a temporary bus parking area with access from Cook Close. “Bus operators have been advised by

airport management of the temporary arrangements.” Ms Longmore said, in addition, signs would be erected so that the temporary bus parking area could easily be located by both bus drivers and pedestrians wanting to locate the temporary parking area. “Additional signage will clearly indicate where bus passengers should enter and exit the temporary parking area and direct them to existing walkways,” she said. The works are expected to be completed at the end of May.

Other significant upgrades were completed at Karratha Airport in 2011, including a $6.9-million front-of-terminal precinct upgrade incorporating controlled parking. The upgrades, in combination with the implementation of new ground transport policies, have already resulted in improved traffic flow and management at the front of the terminal. Further upgrades to the airport are planned for 2012. For more information contact Karratha Airport on (08) 9186 8611.

• $1 from every six pack of hot cross buns sold on March 24 will go towards PMH

Bakery to raise money for PMH By Courtney Bertling

Thanks for taking part in the program. H2 ome Smart, the Water Corporation’s 12-month program to help households in the North West reduce their water use, is now complete. And with preliminary savings equivalent to 83 Olympic sized swimming pools of water, it has been an undoubted success. A big thank you to everyone who took part. By being H2 ome Smart, you have been an integral part of our community’s effort to save water and secure the water future of the North West region.

Now it’s vital to keep on saving. Now you’ve adopted water saving habits, it’s important to keep them up. Especially since we live in a climate where rainfall patterns are unreliable and our increasing population means demand for water will continue to grow.

Karratha Bakers Delight are set to bake over thousands of hot cross buns on Saturday, March 24, to raise money for sick kids at the Princess Margaret Hospital. On ‘Bundraiser Day’ the bakery (along with the other 69 Bakers Delight branches throughout WA) will donate $1 from every six-pack of hot cross buns sold to raise over $25,000 for the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation. Money raised will go towards the Centralised Patient Monitoring Project, personal bedside monitoring systems that tracks patient data including pulse, respiration and oxygen saturation and also helps increase nursing efficiency. The equipment is essential to the hospital’s Emergency Department, which handles near 65,000 cases each year. Karratha Bakers Delight franchisee, Ceanne England said that there will also be some merchandise displays where 100% of the proceeds will go to PMH. “We will also have some donation tins, so if you don’t want hot cross buns, you can still donate to the cause,” she said. “Over the last couple of years, we have raised about $500 each year from the hot cross buns sales and then we can raise up to a couple of grand from the tins. “The people in Karratha are really generous, and in the region people are aware that is your kid is sick, you will do anything to help them. “And to support our states hospital, particularly for kids, it is a big incentive and something that everyone should be happy to be apart of.” For past seven years Karratha Bakers Delight bakers have been baking fresh hot cross buns from scratch, to raise money for PMH, this year will be no different with Bakers Delight Karratha providing traditional, fruitless and choc chip varieties.

Dreamer’s Hill debate 2012 By Courtney Bertling The permit system for Dreamer’s Hill was officially introduced recently with mixed responses of both positive and negative. Shire of Roebourne CEO Collene Longmore said that the responses from sellers at the reserve two weekends ago were mixed, with some supportive of the system and others expressing their opposition to it. “The new permit system at Dreamer’s Hill worked well over the weekend,” Ms Longmore said about the first weekend of the permits. “Shire officers in attendance over the weekend to instruct sellers of vehicles where and how to park. “However, they noted that a number of vehicles had been parked incorrectly either on the Friday night or before 6am on the Saturday.” Ms Longmore stated that there were no Shire officers were in attendance at these times. She added that a new larger

sign is being created to replace the small sign currently in place at the reserve. This new sign will include a parking map and a list of conditions, which sellers must comply with. “Shire Rangers contacted the owners of vehicles left behind on Tuesday and asked that they be removed,” she said. “Most vehicle owners have complied and those who do not remove their vehicles will have them towed.” Sellers are being reminded that permits are for sale at the Shire of Roebourne Administration Office on Welcome Road, Karratha. Alternatively, sellers can download an application form from the Shire website by clicking the Dreamer’s Hill quick link on the left-hand-side of the page. The completed form should be emailed to A list of answers to frequently asked questions about the permit system is also available by clicking the same Dreamer’s Hill quick link.

Locals have been very public with their thoughts of Dreamer’s Hill over the last few weeks, with more than 200 responses coming into the Pilbara Echo. Here is what people have said. For: “I have to say I was originally against this idea but now see that over recent years the corner is getting out of control and there are way too many items put at the hill and its in a very dangerous location with all the traffic flow now, I think the shire should look at providing another spot safer for people to use if they want to charge a fee.” Mrs Baker Against: “Thirty-three years here the shire have lost touch with us, we now pay for airport parking, underground power, now Dreamers hill. Next will be pay parking at the shops. Shire pull your head in we are losing this town to FIFO’s, don’t force us to leave too then you wont have a town just a big miners camp.” - Mr Whittles

• The ladies at Desert Rose Hair Design

Profile: Desert Rose There is no doubt that Desert Rose Hair Design is a well established business in Karratha with owner Sharline Smith managing the business since 2001. In 2005, Sharline purchased the business, and in that time the community has seen the salon increase in popularity. Their current team is made up of three senior stylists, a third year and first year apprentice, a school based trainee and a junior who helps out on Thursday nights and Saturdays. Amy Saxild is the latest addition to the team, proving she is a qualified hairdresser with loads of experience and extensive city training from Perth. Amy Breslin is a capable young stylist and third year apprentice who is looking for models for short hair cuts and creative colour.

While, first year apprentice, JoJo Miller and trainee Jaye Carter are looking for models for blow drying, setting and basic colour application. Although it was hard to get an appointment after Christmas and in January due to staff still being on holidays, Desert Rose is now fully staffed so appointments are available most days or within a few days of calling. As most clients are aware, Sharline is expecting her first child in June. To all of her regular clients, she will be working all the way up until the end of May and will be back for clients on request after a short break. We look forward to welcoming new and existing clients, so ring the girls at Desert Rose Hair Design and book an appointment today on 9185 1892.

Pilbara local McLaren Hire driven by company milestone It has been 14 years since McLaren Hire rented out its only vehicle – a Toyota Landcruiser. Director Sean Clarke said the company had come a long way since 1998 when he and his wife, Lisa, hired out vehicles from their Karratha driveway. “With a steady turnover of great quality vehicles over the years, building the fleet has been a gradual process, but a passion of mine,” Mr Clarke said. “As we grow our team and services, we have reached a new milestone in the company’s history by adding our 1000th vehicle to our impressive specialised fleet.” The dual cab Toyota Hilux was snapped up immediately by an engineering and construction client, joining an existing fleet of customised McLaren Hire vehicles McLaren Hire specialises in providing project-specific customised vehicle hire to Western Australia’s commercial and resources industries. “We like to ensure maximum safety and the best driving experience,” Mr Clarke said. “Our commitment to updating the fleet, adding new models and ensuring every vehicle can be fitted with site-ready equipment is key to our success. “The support from the Pilbara Motor Group has also been invaluable.” McLaren Hire boasts the most extensive fleet range in the North West, having consistently doubled its fleet every year since it started in 1998.

Creative, Quality Cakes For small family business owner Shelley Robinson, the brains and brawn behind Karratha based business SR Cake Designs, spending every day in her kitchen baking and creating quality custom cakes is a dream job.

to dream up a cake from start to finish!” “I remember being 12 and baking a cake for my brother as a surprise for his birthday,” she said.”At that early stage it was not much more than a chocolate cake with fresh cream and a few Smarties on the top.” Since then Shelley’s fondness for baking has only grown and her technique has certainly developed from her Smartie decorating days.

Not only does each and every single one of her masterpieces need to meet a heightened standard of perfection in the design department, they must also be super moist, fresh and ‘melt in your mouth’ delicious! She does this, not because it’s how she earns a living, but because it’s her passion.

From a small country town, Shelley has a huge sense of community and loves the local community in Karratha. Last weekend Shelley and other local businesses held a raffle at the Tambrey Tavern, successfully raising $2300 for two female participants in the Worlds Greatest Shave.

“I love what I do,” Shelley said.”I love baking and creating cakes for people.”I love the look on a customer’s face when they first see the cake I’ve made for them.”And I love being creative and delving into the design process in order

“I supply cakes for all occasions - from weddings and

birthdays to corporate supply and local community events. “All my cakes are baked in a registered council approved kitchen and there are no packet mixes here. “Everything is baked from scratch using only the freshest quality ingredients.” Personalised cakes don’t need to send you broke and Shelley is happy to work within a specified budget to create the perfect cake for you. “I’m so passionate about what I do that every cake has to be perfection. If I do something and don’t like it, I’ll scrap it and start over. Nothing goes out my kitchen door without 100 per cent approval from me. “My customers know that shopping with SR Cake Designs means they will get a quality professional cake - from start to finish.”

Future leaders shine at camp By Millars Well prefects

enhance their leadership skills.

Recently, 80 year seven students from Karratha, Dampier, Roebourne and Wickham spent a week at the annual year seven leadership camp at the Dampier Camp School.

The camp was facilitated by Mr Des Prizmic.

These students included prefects, school captains and faction captains from Karratha Pimary School, Millars Well Primary School, Pegs Creek Primary School, Roebourne District High School, Dampier Primary School, Tambrey Primary School and Wickham Primary School.

• Having fun in the sun

The purpose of the camp was to encourage the students to meet leaders from other schools, develop strategies, work together in team situations and

On the first night the students listened to a talk from Nathan Baxter who is a Chaplain at KSHS and Oceania Weightlifting Champion. He spoke of goal setting, perseverance and commitment. Mr Prizmic coordinated the activities where the students had to solve problems and to achieve goals both in small groups and as well as the whole group. Students enjoyed building war canoes, problem solving activities involving holy pipes and testing their strength in tug-of wars.

A huge thank you and gratitude goes to North West Shelf Venture for their support and funding of the year seven leadership network program. Thanks also to Mr Brett Mullen from Tambrey PS who organised the camp and  lastly Mr Des Prizmic for coordinating a rewarding and engaging camp. A big congratulations to all of the students who represented their schools so very well over the two days and tested themselves with their physical abilities, achievement and team work. I’m sure that all of the Karratha schools will see a direct transfer of the skills the students experienced and learnt whilst on camp in their respective schools.

• 152 people went down to help with the cleanup

Wickham becomes a tidy town By Courtney Bertling The Wickham Community Association’s Tidy Towns held a Cleanup Australia Day throughout the town on Sunday, March 11. One hundred and fifty two participants showed up on the day, including 16 sporting/ community groups, they collected a whopping 1360 bags of rubbish in only two hours. Together, the participants were able to clean the entire Wickham area including Tank Hill, 2 Tank Hill, Boat Beach Road, bushland around the town and the Roebourne Samson Road. The sporting and community groups focused on designated areas and roads, while the individuals took to the left over parts of the town. The sporting and community groups will receive $6 per bag of rubbish collected, the money raised will go straight back into their respective groups and the money raised from the rubbish collected by the individuals will go towards the Cleanup Australia Day tally. After the cleanup, everyone was invited to Saylor Park where a sausage sizzle and drinks were provided to those who participated. Tidy Towns coordinator Taryn Higgins said she was extremely happy with the turn out. “It is a big thing for our local towns to build on community participation and ownership of

programs within the town,” she said. “A massive thank you goes out to those who took the time out on Sunday to help improve the look of the town. “Everyone should be proud of the tremendous result, it really has made a big difference in our beautiful, yet sometimes neglected town. “It is just an awesome all-round, well attended, community event.” The Wickham Community Association’s Tidy Towns will continue to hold major cleanups once every three months.

There’s a new store in town By Courtney Bertling

Three months ago, Sanity began looking at sites and planning to open a store in Centro Karratha, and just last week, it did. The official opening of Sanity Karratha was suppose to be held on Thursday, March 15, however the crew set themselves a challenge and opened a day earlier. Sanity area manager Alicia Carrington said that they were given two days to set up the store once they received the goods sent from Sydney last Tuesday. “We received everything Tuesday morning, so we gave ourselves a challenge and with the dedication of the team along with the drive and focus, we were able to open a day earlier,” she said. Looking back three months to when planning began, Ms Carrington said that Sanity are really get excited about going regional.

“The great thing about the business is that we go with what the costumer wants and make changes to suit them.” - Alicia Carrington

“It is a big focus for us, so anywhere where we can get out there and help our customers, we will do it,” she said. In one day, the response the team at Sanity received was all really positive and proved how popular the store is. “Even prior to opening, people were saying how excited they were to see us coming to town,” Ms Carrington said. “Now the customers are coming in and saying how they love the vibe and the feel of the store. “The great thing about the business is that we go

• The team at Sanity Karratha are excited to have opened their doors last Wednesday with what the customer wants and make changes to suit them.” So now, the team have proved how dedicated they are by opening the store a day earlier then expected, so what is next? “Now it is about continuing the success and so far today

we have been really excited about everyone coming in and having a look,” Ms Carrington said. “So we want to continue that, by getting our Karratha team instilled with our motto of our customer promise.” Sanity is located at Centro Karratha between Swansonia and Jeans West.

Brothers in beats make crowd go wild

• Andy Gray and Hayley Welsh

Kid Kenobi and MC Shureshock have been wowing crowds together now for a massive 12 years, and now Karratha has become one of those crowds. Finishing up another hot WA summer, the dynamic duo stopped up north for a special show and left the dance floor pumping at the All Seasons last weekend. Local DJ, Cam Myles kicked off the night with the dance floor already full after 30 minutes of opening the doors. And from the first moment that Kid Kenobi spun the decks and Shurechock raised his mic up high, the crowd went wild. Kid Kenobi even stopped mixing during the night to capture a photo of the unforgettable crowd that he was performing to.

Safe boating is no accident Boating is a big part of the Pilbara lifestyle. Over 1,000 boats are owned in Port and South Hedland, and as the weather starts to cool, more people will be enjoying being out on the water. Bonnie Matheson, from WA Country Health Service ‘s Pilbara Population Health, said skippers and passengers may like to enjoy an alcoholic drink while boating, but it is important to remember that alcohol can affect your balance, coordination, vision and judgement, leading to risk taking, accidents and injuries.

Drinking alcohol can affect your ability to safely skipper a boat”, Ms Matheson said. “The water, weather, wind, and waves can all dramatically increase the effect alcohol has on your body. “Passengers are just as likely as skippers to be involved in capsizing the vessel or in falling overboard. “Drinking while boating can also lead to alcohol-related road injuries once people have left the water. “In the Pilbara, residents are


Information sessions about the national regulations on early childhood education and child care services will be held in the Pilbara region in March. All State and Territory Governments agreed to new national regulations for early childhood education and care services and outside school hours care at a meeting of the Ministerial Council for Education, Early Childhood Development and Youth Affairs on the 14 October 2011. The National Regulations have served as a template for the Western Australian corresponding regulations, which are currently going through the parliamentary process. There has been a delay to the National Quality Framework implementation date in Western Australia and information session will walk services through the content

of the new Regulations and look at transition processes for WA. Some sessions were held in the south early this year with Community Services Minister Robyn McSweeney saying the forums on provided accurate information about the new framework due to take effect later this year in. “There has been a lot of discussion about the reforms to be introduced under Australia’s new National Quality Framework and the impact on providers and families,” Mrs McSweeney said. “The legislation will be debated when Parliament resumes and there will be local variations to the regulations.” The Minister said a staged implementation would assist services to make the changes smoothly, including longer transition periods for

can be misleading because they can contain varying amounts of alcohol,” she said. “A can of full strength beer for example is equal to 1.4 standard drinks. “People can also eat before or while drinking, try drinks with low alcoholic content, alternate with non-alcoholic drinks, and drink water to stay hydrated.” Funded by Healthway and the Drug and Alcohol Office, the campaign is supported by the Water Corporation, Volunteer Marine Rescue, the Town of Port Hedland, Department of Transport, Port Hedland Port Authority, Fortescue Metals Group, Rio Tinto, BHP Billiton Iron Ore and Harbourside Auto Centre. The public launch, which will include a free barbecue, boat safety checks and advice, merchandise and prizes, will be held from 10am on Saturday, March 31 at Captain Bert Madigan Park next to the Port Hedland boat ramp.

hospitalized for alcohol-related falls and road injuries at more than twice the state average.” Pilbara Population Health and Pilbara Police have formed a partnership to encourage boating enthusiasts to stay safe and enjoy low-risk levels of drinking. “This campaign is not about telling people not to drink alcohol”, Ms Matheson said. “It’s about recognising that if you do choose to drink while boating, there are ways to drink more safely. “Women and men should drink no more than four standard drinks on a single occasion to reduce the risk of alcoholrelated injury. “These drinks should be evenly spaced at one standard drink per hour.” Ms Matheson said managing how much you have consumed can be difficult. “Counting the number of glasses, bottles or cans of alcohol you have drunk

some requirements. Mrs McSweeney said WA services were well placed to adjust to the requirements of the new National Quality Framework. “WA already has good staff to children ratios in child care and a strong history of sound regulations that support quality child care,” she said. The sessions will be held in Karratha on March 12 from 7pm at the Welcome Lottiers House, in South Hedland on March 13 from 7pm at the Lottiers House, in Newman on March 14 from 7pm at the YMCA Early Learning Centre and in Tom Price on March 16 from 7pm at the Nintirri Neighbourhood Centre.

TPSH takes a dive By Andrew Storer

Tom Price Senior High School students braved hot conditions recently to compete in their interhouse swimming carnival.

• Year 10 boys winner Jayden Hall and runner up Lachlan Edge

Competition was fierce with a record number of students participating in the 50 metre events and an abundance of students participating in the ever popular novelty events. The lawns of the Tom Price Town Pool were awash with a vibrant display of red (Maitland), blue (Hardey) and green (Ashburton) as students showed their support for their Houses by dressing for the occasion. It proved to be an electric day in and out of the water. Students swam, cheered and did almost anything to try and get their team over the line.

• Racing to the finish line

There was friendly banter between students and staff as well as uplifting team songs bonding groups together. It was obvious to any on-lookers that it was a special day to be a part of.



were walking away from the pool looking like they had just finished a 40km marathon! And then not 20 minutes later they were back in the water again! All swimmers gave a supreme effort with new champions emerging in 2012 across all year groups. At the end of the day, it was Ashburton Team that took the flag with 1008 points followed by Hardey (802) and Maitland (612).

• Year 10 Girls winner Alyesha Billing with runner up Crysta Waller

Ashburton House Captains; Chloe Ogilvie-Widnalland Liain Cooper, thanked all staff, parents, spectators and students from all houses whilst accepting Ashburton’s second Swimming Trophy in as many years. Chloe Ogilvie-Widnall even attributed her teams’ success to a rousing speech given by Ashburton teacher Mr Eric Godfrey. An incredibly exciting and successful day such as this does not just happen without the valuable assistance from all staff, parents and helpers for making this carnival memorable.

Although it was an incredible sight to behold out of the water let this not distract us from the breathtaking sight in the water.

A special thank you goes to teacher in Charge Physical Education, Katharine Miller, who was the chief organiser for the carnival.

Students literally gave everything they had when competing. Some students put in so much effort they

Despite hot and trying conditions, student behaved and competed admirably on the day.

• Courtney Griffith, Tasma Neale and Chloe Johnson

• Year 9 boys winner Brandon Walawski and runner up Declan Reynolds

• Clinton Ishiguchi getting into the team spirit

• Syncronised dance cheerleading by the Hardy girls and boys • On your marks, get set, GO!

• Year 10 girls race

Nullagine to kick off Western Desert Cup By V Swans regional development manager Clint Degebrodt Over the last three days in Jigalong, the Western Desert Sports Council has met for the first time as an incorporated body to set out the Desert Cup season. Representatives from the Martu Western Desert Communities, Newcrest, V Swans and Department of Sport and Recreation worked together to optimise opportunities for adults, youth and kids in Softball, Football and educational activities. • DeckArts Studio tippy toes ballet students

DeckArts introduces tippy toes classes DeckArts Studio is now offering  kindy ballet classes two mornings a week. The tippy toes ballet classes are perfect for little kindy aged ballerina’s.

Students are currently doing a teddy bears picnic ballet dance which involves the dancers bringing their favourite teddy from home to dance with.

The classes take place at the DAS studio and their studio has ballet barres, mirrors and lots of space.

Lea is a WAAPA (WA Academy of Performing Arts) graduate in Dance and Music Theatre and trained in both RAD and CSTD ballet.

The classes are on Tuesday morning 10.15-11.00am and Friday morning 9.30-10.15am. The class is a  gentle introduction to ballet technique, stretching, and there is lots of imaginative movement involved.

She has held positons such as head of dance at the National Theatre ballet and drama school in Melbourne, senior dance lecturer at Ballarat School of Arts and senior dance lecturer at WAAPA.

DeckArts director Lea Cullen believes that ballet at this age needs to be fun.  The  students learn to stretch their feet properly, they do tippy toe walks and runs, gallops and skipping, learn to softly follow their hands with their eyes and just love any exercise that requires them to be imaginative. 

She understands how important any dancers early training is and feels confident that with over 20 years training and experience her littlest ballet students are in very good hands.... If you would like your little ballerina to try a class, please contact Lea on 0415 999 022 or go to website

The dates have been set for Nullagine starting on Thursday, April 12 through to Tuesday, April 17 with the Grand Final set for 2pm Monday 16. The Carnivals are an outstanding experience with the communities coming together in one town to celebrate sport and culture.

• Practicing for the Western Desert cup With face painters and clowns on the periphery and musicians, cultural experiences and performances at the centre, the evenings are just as full as the sport filled days. It’s sport at its purest and well worth a look if you are happy to have a bit of sun, sand and heat with your barbecue sausage and game of footy.

Six coaches mark the grade hosted by Club Development Officer, Sam King. The six joined another nine from Newman, 13 from Hedland and 4 previous coaches from Dampier. With sessions yet to run in Tom Price and Onslow as many as 30 Pilbara coaches may gain their AFL accredited level 1 coaching qualifications in 2012.

• Up and coming coaches learning the skills

By V Swans regional development manager Clint Degebrodt Six more coaches from the Pilbara gained their level 1 coaching accreditations last Wednesday night with the Shire of Roebourne Club Development Evening

“It’s our players that will benefit, with a group of qualified, educated and dedicated coaches mentoring Pilbara Youth” said V Swans General Manager Nicole Graves. “These coaches are now part of the football family, and there is some guarantee that the environments they create will be supportive and welcoming to players and their development.” More courses are planned for the Shire of Roebourne, if you are keen you can book through your local football club president.

Sponsor me and help burn victims. I’m at it again.


As most of you were aware last September I (Callum Stowell) participated in the Kimberly 100.

I have set up a dedicated account for the girls, and kicked things off by donating $1000.00 to the cause. Please give generously. These girls have a long road ahead of them. It has been 6 Months since the race and both are not expected to return to work within the next 2 years.

A 100km Ultra Marathon in the Kimberly that was cut short as bush fires affected the course. Unfortunately several participants were caught up in the fires, in particular Turia Pitt & Kate Sanderson were left with burns covering up to 80% of their bodies and fighting for their lives under induced comas in intensive care.

Please help me support these girls. On the 24th of March I will be participating in the Northburn 100. This is a 100 Mile Ultra Marathon located in Central Otago New Zealand. (A rugged mountainous area in the centre of the South Island) I am dedicating this Race to Turia & Kate. These strong young girls have been through a tremendous amount of suffering and will continue to battle with the result of their injuries for the rest of their lives. Kate & Turia are both in the rehabilitation units of their respective hospitals as they continue the long road to recovery. Although out of danger, everyday they tirelessly persevere with their recovery and put bluntly both face a life-time of disability and disfigurement.

Account Name : Kate and Turia Donations BSB :

086 - 006

Account # : 12 - 796 - 4034 I understand if donators want to remain anonymous but I do urge you to email me and to let me know you have donated. I would love to be able to provide the girls with a card and a list of names of the people that have donated. Email:

Statements. Each week I will e-mail the statement and balance to keep all donators in the loop with how we are tracking and keep everything transparent. (Simply put anonymous in the comments on the transaction if you do not want people to see what you have donated.) Your details will not be visible. Once I have attempted the race I will be making a transaction to the girls (Split 50:50 Kate:Turia).

Sports groups to share $2M Sport and recreation groups in the NorthWest, Pilbara and Kimberley will share more than $2 million in State Government grants under the latest round of the Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF). Member for Mining and Pastoral Region, Hon Wendy Duncan MLC, welcomed the announcement of funding to 9 projects across 7 shires in the north of Western Australia. “Sport and recreation is a vital part of communities in regional Western Australia and the CSRFF highlights the State Government’s commitment to sustaining and maintaining sporting infrastructure and encouraging continued involvement,” Ms Duncan said. The funded projects will benefit people of all ages and with a range of sporting interests. The Yalgoo community will benefit from the installation of a rage cage, BMX track and skate park and a covering structure and resurfacing of tennis courts with a grant of over $400,000. In Tom Price, BMX Club will upgrade

power and lighting. Work will be done on the Exmouth Bowling Club greens and on lighting at Talanjee Oval in two separate projects whose combined grant value is over $436,000. $315,332 has been granted to the Karratha Country Club to enable the grassing of Club green. The Town of Port Hedland will upgrade courts at the JD Hardie Centre and install floodlights at Marie Marland Reserve; these two projects will be provided funding of over $518,000. Derby undercover courts and cricket nets will be upgraded and floodlights will be installed at Kununurra Ag Oval at a cost of $350,000. “There is no doubt that these improvements will contribute greatly to the enjoyment we all share from living in regional WA and it is particularly encouraging that such a wide range of projects have been put forward by community groups and Local Government agencies,” said Ms Duncan.

PB’s everywhere at the Country Pennants By Janine Wain Country Pennants is a prominent meet on the swimming calendar.  This year 31 teams competed in five divisions over two days.  Every hotel, motel, caravan park and community hall was booked out in Collie as almost 700 competitors and an estimated 1300 spectators converged for the 53rd annual Country Pennants.  This is one of the largest swimming events in the southern hemisphere.  Each team is allowed one swimmer per age per event.  Karratha Amateur Swimming Club sent a team of 22 swimmers to Collie. The weekend began with the team March past.  The Karratha team came better prepared for the cold weather this year and looked superb, sporting their new WBHO-Civil sponsored team tracksuits. Racing commenced with the medley relays where the combination of Stevie Stanley, Abby Bozanich, Isobel Norris and Mikaela Wilson took out the bronze in the 10 and under girl’s event.  The individual swims began with freestyle, where eight-year-olds Stevie Stanley and Laken Wain each earned silver medals.  They continued their reign of medals over the weekend, earning a spot on the podium in all their individual events. In the nine and 10-year-old age group, Keldon Wain grabbed victory in the freestyle and backstroke and also medalled in the breast and fly. 

Macie Bennetts also took out the number one spot in the 100m freestyle and 50m butterfly, setting a new Karratha club record of 32.46 in the fly. Ross Rann was another medallist, taking out silver in the backstroke and bronze in the fly.  Allanah Baxter was pipped for third in the 100m freestyle, by a mere eight hundredth of a second.  She fought a hard race in her second 100m fly of the day, gaining silver in the open fly, in a time of 114.47, only just being pipped for first.  Both Baxter and Bennetts were awarded Top six certificates for achieving the third and sixth fastest overall times in the women’s 50m and 100m fly event. In the Freestyle events, Matthew Oronce and Erin Shaylor came in fourth, with senior swimmers Amara Fowke, Cian Lynch and Grace Williamson all gaining new times.  The Backstroke saw Ben Watts smash his PB by 10 seconds, Mikaela Rice shave five seconds off her PB and Matthew Oronce with four.  Georgina Bushby & Nino Antonucci also reduced their previous times.  Eleven-year-old Jacynta Felix also did some whopping PB’s taking five seconds off her fly and a further four seconds off her breastroke, doing a 48.55.  Amara Fowke annihilated her 100m butterfly time by more than 10 seconds and Ben Watts and Shenae Murphy also achieved improved times. A meet such as Country Pennants requires enormous organization and support. 

Abby Bozanich, Heath Collins and Zane Smith experienced their first ever Country Pennants event with some fantastic PB’s.

The Karratha Amateur Swimming Club would like to acknowledge the hard work of Coach and Pennants Coordinator Kylie Rann and to also thank all their sponsors for their fantastic support and sponsorship which makes events like these possible.

Bozanich took a whopping 10 and 12 seconds off her backstroke and fly, with Collins also smashing his breastroke PB by five seconds.

Competitors from various clubs around the state will come to Karratha to compete.

Mikaela Wilson gained bronze in her butterfly event with a new PB of 41.34.

Next weekend will see Karratha hold its annual North West Open event.

The Panthers took the match by 10 majors in a strong performance. Angels look to be the team blooding new players again after 2011 was the training ground of


the competition. With new players in they will build their team in coming weeks to get some success. Reining premiers Hard Luck and Trouble took that game out by eight goals with Storm Ferrier, Teneeka Searle and Jess Creighton dominant. The Emergency Ward girls have split between the teams for this competition with a few already recruited by Hard Luck and Trouble and Daneele Dunham moving into the Angels side to provide some much needed grunt in the midfield. If you are interested in playing please feel free to come down to Bulgarra Oval Tuesdays at 6.30pm or call Clint on 0409 076 219.

Rain doesn’t stop golfers By Jo Cooper The weather turned on the taps last week at the Karratha golf Club but did not stop hardy players making their way around the greens. Perhaps it was the sponsorship from JP’s Trimshop that kept our soggy players – all 56 of them – in high spirits as they squelched their way around the back nine. Hole 19 was very quiet with most dashing off to a hot shower. Look out for next week’s edition to see the results.

Big year ahead for speedway By Chantelle Dalgarno This year marks the fortieth birthday of Nickol Bay Speedway, and to celebrate, the club are making sure that 2012 will be a year to remember - for all the right reasons. We, as a club, have been listening to your feedback and to celebrate our birthday all year long, we’re going to be making a few changes to include more fun, more value and more speedway! You asked for better value for money so we’re fixing gate entry, canteen and bar prices at 2010 rates and offering up Season Passes, which will save singles $40, and families will save $100! You asked for more entertainment so we’re changing the program to include intermission competitions, games and giveaways with lots of cash, vouchers and products as prizes! You asked for more access so we’re bringing the drivers out of the pits and into the public areas during intermission to give away signed photos of their cars in action to the kids and bringing the cars to the front

lawn of Harvey Norman on a regular basis so that you can check ‘em out for yourself. You asked for better facilities so we’re working closely with our sponsors to refurbish our amenities, extend the trackbanks to allow for more parking and viewing areas, and working towards upgrading our lights so that we can eventually get rid of the mobile lighting towers. You wanted more information on what’s happening so we’ve launched the website which will include information on Points Tallies, so that you can see where your favourite drivers and riders are sitting on the ladder as well as upcoming events, latest news, driver profiles and more! On behalf of the Nickol Bay Speedway Club committee, we would like to thank all of our Sponsors, members, competitors, volunteers and fans for your support over the last forty years. We couldn’t have done it without you! For more information on season passes, upcoming events, and how to get involved with the club, check out:

Masters away for 2012 By V Swans regional development manager Clint Degebrodt The AFL Masters WA preseason kicked off last week with their first hit out of the season at Bulgarra Oval in the AFL 9’s format. New team Crocs lead by Greg ‘Spider’ Stott fielded a strong side with some older masters of the game and some blokes that were playing their first game. The Crocs are predominantly a side out of the Water Corporation and lead the match for most of the night with standout performances from Spider and Richie Pollar. Paul Nolan was handy up forward and Nathan Cox dominant through the midfield. The ‘Rest of the World’ team was made up if Ishmal, Hacks and Baggers and Taggers players as the

first night was impacted by the country week basketball champs with many players nursing sore legs through the first fixture. It was Wayne Sharpe and Shane White who led the way for the World team with expert ball movement through the centre and accurate disposal. Mick Gospar and Dale Scott were the masters in front of goal while the run of Stan Begg was the difference in the last five minutes of the match which saw the World team snatch the match 11 to 9, not that anyone cares! Masters is all about having a run and a social game with some light refreshments at the conclusion game and no experience is necessary, if this sounds like you then feel free to wander down or call 0409 076 219 to find out more.

Rain changes race format By race director Mark Smith

• Father and son, Nino and Gino Antonucci

Inclement weather greeted competitors at race right of the Nickol Bay Triathlon Club 2011/2012 Series held at the Karratha street circuit. This forced organisers to drop the bike leg and include another run leg. The format being run-swim-run. A mass run start quickly cleared the transition area. The cooler weather enabled some competitors to push hard. Although entering the water for the swim leg with heavy legs and an elevated heart rate was something new. In the long course Todd Rintoul showed his strong swimming ability over 600m to haul in early 3k run leader Francis Blampied. Rintoul is on the come-back trail after a heat stress scare three weeks ago. On the final lap of the 6k run Blampied pushed past Rintoul to take the win. The improving Brett Greensil placed third. Superfit and consistent Jan Gallatly eased around the long course. In the short course three

competitors battled it out with less than 300m between them. Greg Harris took the win followed by Justin Nicholls and Ashley Rogers. Busselton Half ironwoman hopeful Stacey Holden nailed down another strong race. Nino Antonucci stepped up into the enticer course distances and showed he is a pocket rocket to contend with by just pipping James Mackinnon. Amelia Greensil with a controlled race took third. A field of 14 juniors didn’t hold back either. Keldon Wain took the win with Lily Moore and Ailish Neeson showing some girl power before a wave of kids outrunning their parents. All individuals race well with some lucky competitors receiving random spot prizes kindly donated by Scott Cycles. Team entry with Matt Plumber, Kelly Manning and Bianca Williams from the Shire of Roebourne completed the long course and are seriously considering a team entry in the 30th Annual Dampier Triathlon on Sunday, April 1.
