My anger is not aimed at the Roebourne Shire as I applaud them for providing such good facilities. Nor is it aimed at the good people of Point Samson. However it is aimed at the people who left this rubbish lying around in an otherwise beautiful park. Who are these people? Are they complete morons, are they completely ignorant or are they just completely selfish (or perhaps all of the above?). Either way they are a complete disgrace to society and to the human race. Robert Hinckfuss Long Term Karratha Resident

Justice has been served I write to you again just to thank the Police officers who took time out to do further investigation on a letter I wrote on the 11th of October 2010, in regards to a man urinating in public on his ute adjacent to Mcdonalds. I am enormously humbled for the support I received from Inspector Peter Morrissey and his staff. Thank you for not taking this matter lightly and for doing

everything in your power to catch the perpetrator. The culprit has been identified and has been charged. True ignorance of the law should excuse no one. I am very pleased with the outcome on this matter. Thank you once again. Samantha Wood

New drinking water sources announced At the State Cabinet meeting held in Karratha on October 25 a proposal was endorsed to build a new seawater desalination plant as the next major drinking water source for the West Pilbara. Also, investigations will get under way to expand the Yule borefield to supplement the Hedland water supply scheme in the East Pilbara. Speaking after the regional Cabinet meeting, Premier Colin Barnett said the new seawater desalination plant and associated infrastructure for the West Pilbara would cost approximately $370million and would be commissioned in three years. “Today’s announcement will add a further six billion litres of water a year to support residential and small commercial growth in Karratha, Dampier, Roebourne, Wickham and Point Samson,” the Premier said. “This is part of our recognition

that the extraordinary ongoing residential growth in both the West and East Pilbara requires infrastructure investment decisions that support our ‘Pilbara Cities’ vision.” Water Minister Graham Jacobs said the further six billion litres of drinking water would be needed for the West Pilbara supply scheme by 2015. The State Government recently called for expressions of interest from parties interested in supplying that quantity of water for the medium term future. “There were some potentially sound possibilities for the longer term out of that process and these will be further investigated in time,” he said. “However, the only option that would deliver a major new water source in the timeframe required was a seawater desalination plant and it has the advantage of being climate independent.” Dr Jacobs said the Water

Corporation would manage the development of the new desalination project. “The Government has been working for some time on the development of a new desalination plant as one of the options and is sufficiently advanced in planning to be confident of commissioning in the first quarter of 2013,” he said. “The corporation also has funding in its current budget allocation for works that will support population growth in the intervening period and has just begun an $11million water efficiency program across all towns in the Pilbara and Onslow with a target of saving at least 10 per cent of total water use in the area annually. “This program will also play a part in ensuring security of supply through the next three years in the West Pilbara.” For the East Pilbara, Dr Jacobs said investigations, to be completed by December, would

determine if the Yule borefield had any additional supply capacity that could be made available for the scheme in Hedland. The Hedland scheme was supplied by groundwater from the Yule and De Grey borefields. Dr Jacobs said the Government was fully committed to the expansion as soon as practicable so further connections could be made. “As part of the State Government’s planning for Hedland, an additional 1,800 new water service connections have already been approved in the last 18 months,” he said. Regional Development Minister Brendon Grylls said the primary purpose of the new seawater desalination plant was to ensure water supplies for the longer term for residential and small-scale industrial development. It was expected that the major industrial operators would source and fund their own water supply

needs under this scenario. “The Government is committed to a vibrant and sustainable future for the Pilbara and we are demonstrating this through the ‘Pilbara Cities’ vision and encouragement of further industrial and other commercial development,” Mr Grylls said. “However, in this instance our main focus is on enhancing the West Pilbara’s residential and community amenity. “It would be undesirable for the high quality water that will come from this plant to be used for lower value industrial uses. “Everyone needs to play their part in building prosperous and vibrant north-west communities and I am sure everyone will.” The Government is currently considering further water source options for Onslow for which announcement will be made by the end of the year.

In a recent campaign supporting World Hunger Relief (WHR), KFC Karratha have managed to raise $6,377 in 2010. Throughout Australia and New Zealand in excess of $928,000 has been raised by World Hunger Relief to assist the United Nations (UN) World Food Programme. On behalf of KFC and Pizza Hut Australia, YUM! made an initial donation of $50,000 to kick-start the campaign which ran in stores nationally between 4 September and 4 October 2010. This year, KFC Karratha hosted a car wash, plus a raffle and a guess the jellybean competition. Sally Sawyers, Manager of KFC Karratha said “It was great to see staff, customers and so many members of the local community support our fundraising activities. “They have contributed significantly to the success of World Hunger Relief 2010.

“We love being part of a global initiative that really makes a difference to the lives of so many.” Customers were encouraged to support store fundraisers by making a gold coin donation or purchasing merchandise in-store. The World Food Programme, the world’s largest humanitarian agency, will use the much needed funds raised this year to provide enhanced community based nutrition education programmes in Laos, assist in conflict relief and recovery in the Philippines and support relief and recovery efforts for the victims of the recent flood in Pakistan. Cynthia Jones, Head of Asia Private Partnerships for the United Nations World Food Programme said “KFC and Pizza Hut stores are a great example of how a company and the local community can work together to tackle world hunger. KFC, Pizza Hut and WFP share the common goal of eradicating hunger from our world once and for all.”

Stage one of Roebourne’s new housing project under way Premier Colin Barnett launched the Ngarluma Aboriginal Sustainable Housing (NASH) project on October 24 in Roebourne, which is designed to provide affordable accommodation and help improve the residents’ economic and social wellbeing. Chairperson of Ngarluma Aboriginal Corporation (NAC) and NASH Jeannie Churnside said that Former Western Australian premier Peter Dowding had suggested they build a new suburb in Roebourne and use their resources to provide home ownership schemes for members of their Native Title Group. “We had a professional report done on 6 possible sites- we already owned 5 of the sites and the sixth site was suggested to us by the Shire” she said. Visiting the site in Roebourne, Premier Colin Barnett, Housing Minister Bill Marmion and Regional Development Minister Brendon Grylls announced that work would commence on Stage One of the Ngarluma Aboriginal Sustainable Housing (NASH) Project. Mr Barnett said the project had been initiated by the NAC to help ease housing pressure in the town. “The State Government’s commitment of $11million will allow the development of increased housing options for people in the area,” he said. “The project will have the potential to deliver 400 residential lots, four grouped housing sites and a commercial site being built on 61.84ha of land. “The first stage of the project will contain 100 lots, of which 99 will be single residential lots and the remaining lot will be a group

housing site for 10 dwellings.” Housing Minister Bill Marmion said that the injection of Government funding would help to increase opportunities in the Pilbara region. “The Department of Housing will contribute $6million for 50 lots in the development which will be used for social and Government officers’ housing,” Mr Marmion said. “A further $5million from the State Government’s Royalties for Regions fund will be contributed to this project, providing a total Government • Premier Colin Barnett and NAC’s investment of Chairperson Jeannie Churnside holding $11million.

Gardening guru visits Karratha By Niki Morrell

Roebourne.

One of Australia’s biggest names in landscape design recently visited Karratha to help identify possible sites for a new community facility. Josh Byrne, environmental scientist and presenter for ABC TV’s Gardening Australia programme, flew into town with three associates on October 25 to meet with a reference group representing interested community organisations and the Shire of

The proposed development includes a Men’s Shed, a new Arts and Learning Centre building, a community garden and artists’ studios. “There’s so much possibility with a co-located community facility like this,” said Mr Byrne. “Each of the elements can support the others — the Men’s Shed people could make things that the Arts and Learning people need, the artists could create installations for the site and

the garden could feed them all when it’s done. “There’s also a lot of scope for other activities, ranging from education and training through to micro-enterprise.” After a morning of presentations and workshops, the participants visited four sites around Karratha to assess their suitability. The final selection will be made after the consultants’ recommendations are examined and discussed.

100% ‘Worksafe’ rating awarded to student

Pindan College student Harley Shield received an impressive 100% Worksafe evaluation while completing work experience with Kempe Engineering Services in Karratha.

impressed that we were able to show consistency in safety performance for the entirety of his work experience with Kempe,” she said.

Shield was one of a number of employees randomly selected to take part in the Worksafe audit, which evaluates workplace safety and health standards including hazard identification, risk assessment and housekeeping.

Shield, who is due to graduate from Pindan College at the end of 2010, said it was exciting to be recognised for his safety standards during his placement with Kempe Engineering.

The efforts of Shield and other employees who scored highly in the Worksafe audit resulted in Kempe Engineering Karratha being awarded the Worksafe Platinum Certificate of Achievement. Amanda Hambrook, Branch Coordinator at Kempe Engineering, said Shield should be proud of his achievements and consistent safety performance, which are a testament to the excellent occupational safety and health training at Pindan College. “The level of safety awareness in students placed by Pindan College has been excellent; the students have all picked up the specific requirements of our company with ease and produced some great results,” Hambrook said. “I commend the College’s lecturers and advisers who obviously work tirelessly with the students to lay the foundations of workplace safety requirements,” she added. Hambrook explained the Worksafe auditor was impressed with Shield’s safety standards and work ethic. “The auditor was unable to find fault with the housekeeping of the work area, the layout of the work station and Harley’s ‘Take 5s’ preparation which were found to be comprehensive in hazard identification and well thought out in terms of implemented controls,” Hambrook said. auditor

Pindan College CEO Dr Nancy Rees explained safety and health are cornerstone values of the College. “At Pindan, we view our ongoing OSH training for staff and students as an investment in risk management of safety and health issues, and critical to preparing our students for the workplace,” Dr Rees said.

Offenders are liable for a $200 on the spot fine or $2000 upon a court conviction. Drivers are liable for an on the spot fine of $200 per person drinking in the vehicle.

“I really enjoyed working with the Kempe Engineering team. I did a range of different tasks, including grinding, oxycutting and metal welding,” Shield said.

“Harley has done a great job and we are really proud of him,” she said.

“I always ensure my work station is safe by doing things such as making sure there is someone on fire watch and a fire blanket available, as well as making sure there are the correct guards in place when using tools,” he added.

• Year eight students Asher Johnson, Caleb Bath, Angus Rogers, Jesse Lyon, JJ Hall and Kaliesha Farrell talked to the year sevens about life at high school

We all remember how scary it was going from primary school to high school, but the year seven students of Karratha, Dampier and Wickham attended the Next Stop Conference on October 27 at the Karratha Senior High School (KSHS) TAFE campus, to learn about what to expect. Sponsored by Woodside and North West Shelf Venture, the event was held at the campus to give advice in many areas to the students and to address their needs for when they move on to high school. Year seven students from St Paul’s, Pegs Creek, Tambrey, Millars Well, Karratha, Dampier and Wickham Primary School all attended the event. Following an opening speech, delivered by Rex Halse, the students were split into groups and sent to one of the ten 30 minute workshops which alternated throughout the day. The workshops ranged from ‘Fitness and Health’ lead by Michael O’Donaghue to ‘Making Good

Choices’ by Lynelle Fozard from SDERA. A ‘Rock and Water’ workshop lead by Karratha Senior High School’s Nathan Baxter, used physical social learning to teach students about developing self control and awareness, learning safe boundaries and about bullying. A workshop lead by KSHS year eight students; ‘Going to High School’ gave the year sevens a chance to listen to the experiences of older students and what to expect. Bankwest’s representative Berlinda Lawrence advised students on dealing with money, opening bank accounts and saving for the future. A skipping group from Pegs Creek Primary taught the students about living a healthy lifestyle and keeping active. Other workshops included Memory with Masterchef lead by KSHS’s Sandii Stankovic, Teamwork lead by KSHS’s Gavin Jacks, 8 Helpful Hints lead by KSHS’s Rex Halse and Peer Pressure by Renee Dobra.

Science students set for China Students from the Pilbara region certainly impressed the science community when they presented their insightful research projects in front of a panel of judges at the 2010 Rio Tinto Scitech science competition. The Year 11 students have been hard at work over the last three months to create a short research project that they presented in front of representatives from Rio Tinto and Scitech at the Welcome Lotteries House in Karratha on October 21. The winners of the competition were Georgia Hay from St Luke’s College and Jaquelin McCaskie also from St Lukes College. Georgia Hay’s project was called ‘Fascinating Flora’ A closer look at plants in the Pilbara. With the help from her research supervisor Hanouska Bishop she investigated the biodiversity in three different sites west of East Intercourse Island. Jacquelin McCaskie, along with research supervisor Tania Lindau carried out her project ‘Solar Salt’. The experiment investigated the ability of various salts to alter the temperature of ice and the amount of water that changed state. Accompanied by their Rio Tinto research supervisors, as well as two representatives from Scitech, Georgia and Jacquelin will now present their projects to students from China and around the world before visiting some of China’s most iconic destinations including the Great Wall, Summer Palace and the Forbidden City. The other students that

participated were Katie Sturzaker and Keliesha O'Breza from Tom Price SHS, Kristine Punzalan and Liam Pilgrim from Karratha SHS and Jessica Strohfeldt and Mikyla Rata from St Luke’s College. The competition was designed to give enthusiastic science students from regional areas the opportunity to team up with a Rio Tinto supervisor and create a research piece on their chosen subject of interest. The students worked alongside their mentors to develop their skills in practical field work, lab work and report writing. “Working closely with qualified experts has given these students valuable one-on-one experience that they would not have been ordinarily exposed to,” says Scitech Program Coordinator, Craig Bloxsome. The presentation afternoon saw students, research supervisors, teachers and parents who have been involved in the program, come together to acknowledge the hard work these students had put into their projects. It also gave students the opportunity to share with everyone details of their project and their experience of working with a scientist in their local community. “Scitech and Rio Tinto are both committed to encouraging a greater number of young Western Australian’s to take up a career in science,” says Craig. “These students have shown a real talent for science and we hope this experience will give these young scientists the confidence to pursue their passion.”

First houses in workers estate complete An official visit by regional members of Cabinet were in Karratha this week for their regional Cabinet sitting which coincided with an exclusive inspection of two new homes at Warambie Estate, the State Government funded Service Workers Accommodation project. Consequently, during their visit an additional home arrived by semi-trailer after a two day journey from Perth. Complementing its Royalties for Regions initiative to develop significant regional opportunities in the Pilbara region, the State Government will inject $30million into the Warambie Estate development which was awarded to the NLV Group last year and whose subsidiary companies, Lifestyle Developments and EcoFit Homes will build and operate the estate under the stewardship of Landcorp. NLV Group chief executive, Mike Hollett, says, “We’re extremely delighted with the progress of the project which is on-track, on-time and onbudget with plans already in-line to accelerate home production from two per week, to four.” Mike also said feedback around the quality and calibre of

Seven dwarfs or seven soroptimists October saw Karratha Soroptimists and friends responding to a call from a member Club to make the month ‘Thunder Dragon Beanie Month’ in support of the Buddhist Nuns of Bhutan. The photo may be funny but the beanies worn by members had a serious intent. Their destination is the nunneries in Bhutan, the Kingdom of the Thunder Dragon, situated high in the Himalayan mountains where living conditions are harsh and poverty, extreme. Many of the nunneries are located in remote areas, lacking the most basic amenities that sustain life and without access to sources of funding from government. Community support is also extremely limited leaving the women and girls in many nunneries vulnerable and neglected. So why do the women and girls choose such a life, dedicated to seeking a peaceful existence in the belief that that they can contribute to the well being and happiness of all people through direct action and prayer? Many seek refuge from extreme poverty, overwhelming social challenges, loss of family, deprivation, and the search for

Karratha’s street party Acting as the centrepiece of the Desert Red Earth Arts Festival, a celebration of community spirit in Karratha took place on Sharpe Avenue, October 24. The street was full of people, arts and crafts stalls and plenty of food stalls. Various acts entertained the crowd such as the infamous Chooky Dancers, Chocolate Strings and MC Peter Rowsthorn from hit series Kath and Kim.

The chefs of Karratha went head to head in the Masterchef Barbecue Competition which Kim Henshaw won with his Carpetbag Steak, served with vine cherry tomatoes and crispy potato straws. The festival was a huge success with over 2000 people attending, and it was great to see the community come together to celebrate.

• The Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra

Karratha to see world’s renowned orchestra Lovers of classical music will be pleased to hear that regional Australia will be able to enjoy a live performance from the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra (BPO) through a simulcast being aired in real time from the Perth Concert Hall on November 14. The Karratha community will be able to watch the performance at the Walkington Theatre from 8pm via the Westlink network, using high quality video and audio technology. The initiative by the State Government was met with much enthusiasm by the BPO and will be aired to eight regional communities. The BPO is an orchestra based in Berlin, Germany with success dating back to 1887. Berlin concert agent Hermann Wolff took over the management of a small group of musicians and changed their name to the Berliner Philharmonisches Orchester. After searching for the best conductors to run the orchestra, and as they grew, they became Berliner Philharmoniker, and are

now regarded as one of the best orchestras in the world. The simulcast will be run simultaneously with the Perth performance so that those attending can experience the pleasure of attending a full concert as if they were actually there. Under the baton of their renowned and celebrated Chief Conductor, Sir Simon Rattle, the Orchestra will perform Rachmaninov’s ‘Symphonic Dances’ and Mahler’s masterful ‘Symphony No 1 in D Major’ which are two seminal works in their repertoire. Minister for Regional Development Brendon Grylls said regional communities will be able to enjoy this world class concert, free of charge. “Westlink subscribers with access to satellite decoding equipment will also be able to enjoy the concert from the privacy of their own homes” he said. Culture and Arts Minister John Day said the State Government was proud to partner with the Perth Theatre Trust and the Perth Concert Hall to support the Orchestra’s first

Australian visit.

As a part of the Desert REAF line-up, the Walkington Theatre presented Future Shorts, an ambitious project celebrating creativity from all over the world armed with the largest short film network in the world. Very much appearing to be something that would fit better in a late-night SBS line-up, Motel acted as an opener - and a jarring one at that. To be completely honest, I found myself refuse to even try to “get it” the moment the man jumped out of bed and started to variate between crawling, crab-walking and... God knows what... apparently doing not much in particular, except attempting to attack or make love with a woman who comes knocking on the door. Not going to lie: I didn’t get it. But I don’t think it really mattered, judging by the audience’s switching between “huh?” and uneasy laughter.

While it is largely about said collection, it goes on to largely revolve around his bitterness towards the direction music is headed, this distaste mostly fueled by the vinyl-record slowly becoming obsolete. Black humor always seems to have a spot in short film line-ups, and they’re - to me, at least - always a welcome addition. And thus, there was The News, a dire tale about a fairly simple girl who, after discovering she’s pregnant, invites her boyfriend to a lunch date (which is allegedly already ritual) to inform him. I really don’t want to give anything away, as this can easily be viewed online, but... her partner assures her he is going to one-up her news before she even utters what it is. And he manages. Admirably, if that’s the right word for it. While it isn’t unusual for them to be included, coming across a music video wasn’t expected on my behalf. However, the clip to Cinnamon Chaser’s “Luv Deluxe” made an appearance nonetheless.

“I am extremely pleased that the State Government is also giving people in regional areas the opportunity to see this world class performance.” Andrew Bolt, Perth Concert Hall’s General Manager is excited about the live simulcast as it has never been done before and wouldn’t have been possible without the Royalties for Regions.

In my opinion, it merits as a short film all the same; with music videos mostly consisting of mainstream artists whose faces seem to get in every nook and cranny of media self-fetishizing themselves, Luv Deluxe is easily one of the best music videos I’ve seen, and definitely a favourite of the Future Shorts lineup. It tells the story of a young man who decides to emancipate himself and live life on the road with his girlfriend, heading to the big bad city to finally begin “living”. However, as it follows the structure of the song, it plays out this experience in three different realties - one, where they both indulge in narcotics; another, where they pickpocket others for a living; and the final stage where, despite avoiding these temptations, things still don’t seem to quite work out. Overall, while I preferred what St Kilda had to offer, Future Shorts is a promising, solid collection of short films that I’m sure will go on to continue to entertain audiences as it begins its “ONE” simulcast in November. As another part to the ‘Film and Funk’ evening, reggae band Chocolate Strings entertained the crowd with their acoustic grooves and soulful tracks.

Documentaries suddenly popping up in a short film line-up always has the same negative effect - at first, the audience doesn’t really know if it’s being serious or not. St Kilda Shorts had the problem with the short documentary on pigeon racing; and Future Shorts had it with The Archive.

The Archive follows a medically blind sixty-something year old named Paul Mawhinney, who possesses the largest vinyl-record collection on earth.

More than 430,000 Australians get skin cancer and over 1,700 Australians die from it each year. In the north west of Australia, UV radiation causes sunburn and skin damage very rapidly. Ten or twelve minutes outside can be enough to get burnt. We can’t feel UV radiation, so clear skies or high temperatures can’t be used to determine when sun protection is needed.

WA Labor's surprise stance WA Labor's surprise stance Minister threatens to use law to to use law to Minister threatens on detention centre force people on NBN if states revolt on detention centre force people on NBN if states revolt

WA's leader of the opposition Eric Ripper has come out against federal government plans to house up to 1500 asylum seekers at a disused army base in the Wheatbelt town of Northam. Mr Ripper says WA is housing too many asylum seekers and the job should be shared out with the other states. His line breaks ranks with his Labor colleagues in Canberra and appears more in tune with WA's Liberal Premier Colin Barnett, who has previously called for other states to share the burden. In WA, single male asylum seekers are already housed at the Curtin Detention Centre in the Kimberley while asylum seeker families are housed at a disused mining camp at Leonora in the Goldfields. Mr Ripper said federal government plans announced on Monday to house up to 1500 single male asylum seekers at the disused army base in Northam was "too much" and the load should be spread. "It's not being shared out fairly among the states at the moment," he told ABC Radio. Mr Ripper said Mr Barnett may now regret writing to former immigration

minister Chris Evans suggesting Northam as a site for a detention centre.

He said the premier was trying to "have his cake and eat it too" by now expressing concerns about safety and security in Northam if 1500 single male asylum seekers were housed there.

Communications Minister Senator Stephen Conroy said he will wield federal law as a weapon to force people on to the national broadband network (NBN) if the states and territories don't make connections mandatory. Some consumers are opposed to the NBN because they fear the costs of their phone lines and broadband will increase. Because of misreporting in the media, some also fear they will lose their fixed-line phone services, according to Conroy. Others are opposed to the $43 billion cost of building the network, of which up to $27 billion will be footed by taxpayers. Conroy has said that the current copper service will be turned off as each home and business is connected to the NBN. He has reassured consumers that they will not be worse off by connecting to the NBN. But he said that, if they do not switch, then they will not have a phone line or access to ADSL broadband when the copper network is decommissioned. The NBN is being rolled out in Tasmania first. Connecting to the network there is optional and free initially. It is expected that there will be no cost to connect to the NBN initially when it is rolled out nationally.

But Senator Conroy has reiterated the government's intention to make it compulsory to connect to the NBN as it is being rolled out. "We are working our way through the issues with the states and ... we ultimately would consider, if we can't reach settlement, mandating it through the Federal Parliament. But we prefer to be engaged with the states," Senator Conroy said, speaking to this website at Parliament House yesterday. He added that the federal government had not "exhausted those conversations yet". He also said that the matter of a connection being mandated was "not a new issue". "[We've been] having a conversation with the states for over 12 months on this very issue," he said. "This is not a new issue. Malcolm Turnbull might have discovered it recently but it has actually been on the agenda. And we've actually been saying for quite some considerable time: as we disconnect the copper we'll be connecting the fibre." Last Friday, watoday.com.au reported it would cost up to $300 to connect to the NBN if a house or business did not consent to connecting to it as it was rolled out initially. Connecting to the NBN is optional and free while it is being rolled out now in Tasmania. It is unclear if a cost will be involved after the initial roll-out in other states and territories.

Four-hour-rule targets reset for hospitals

Four-hour-rule targets reset for hospitals

The State Government has watered down the targets for its four-hourrule program for three Perth public hospitals, citing a lack of aged care beds and GPs for the shift. Public hospitals would not reach set targets under the program in its original form, that aimed to admit, transfer or discharge 98 per cent of emergency department patients in four hours, prompting Health Minister Kim Hames to reset the goal. Royal Perth, Sir Charles Gairdner and Fremantle hospitals would all have that target revised so that they would only have to deal with 85 per cent of patients in the four-hour time frame by next April. Currently Royal Perth Hospital sees 72 per cent of patients in the allotted time, Fremantle Hospital deals with 64 per cent and Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital was lagging behind on 58 per cent.

per cent of patients in the guideline period, would still have to reach the 98 per cent mark by April. Australian Medical Association of WA president Dave Mountain said hospitals may have trouble reaching the revised 85 per cent targets without significant funding increases. "They are hoping to do this on the cheap. We need significant resources in terms of beds and staff and also things like radiological services," Dr Mountain said. "When you add up the beds that they have planned for the next four to five years, they will only cover the increase in demand we're expecting and we're already falling short." Dr Hames said the program would likely be scaled back to stipulate hospitals would have to see 95 per cent of patients in four hours, rather than the 98 per cent originally touted.

cent that is going to be required of all hospitals across Australia," Dr Hames said. He took aim at the Federal Government, saying the failure was partly due to a lack of GPs and aged care beds as well the previous state government's delays in opening new beds at Joondalup and Rockingham hospitals and the hold-up of the new Fiona Stanley Hospital. He said hospitals were also coping with an increase in demand. "When the four-hour-rule program started, we gave ourselves two years less than the UK to meet the final target with stricter quality and safety protocols," Dr Hames said. Earlier this year the UK government announced plans to scrap the rule for its emergency departments. Opposition health spokesman Roger Cook said Dr Hames was shifting blame to the Commonwealth and urged him to sign WA up to the Federal Government's health deal.

"I think we've been clear in the past in saying if we hadn't done anything this winter would have been catastrophic."

Dr Hames said there had been a seven per cent surge in the number of people presenting to emergency departments at Perth's tertiary hospitals over the past year. "We are no longer seeing patients forced to wait in corridors and crowding is far less of an issue than it was when the program began," he said. The number of patients forced to wait longer than eight hours for an inpatient bed had also fallen by 10 per cent to 26 percent over the past year, Dr Hames said. Mr Cook repeated his claim that the four-hour-rule program was destined to fail. "The government introduced the four-hour-rule at the same time as it was taking three per cent out of the health budget," Mr Cook said. "What the doctors and nurses are telling me on the front line is that they need more beds and staff." Dr Hames also announced funding on top of the $10 million already

spent on the program, including $2 million for a computer system that would allow hospital staff to see which beds were available and $1 million to give junior doctors and ward staff medical leadership training.

A further $120,000 would be used on hand-held devices for medical staff working outside business hours at tertiary hospitals. The devices would allow them to track, re-assign and prioritise work while on night shift. Dr Mountain said he still backed the usefulness of the four-hour-rule program, despite saying it had a huge amount of promise that couldn't be realised without funding. "Things are changing and for the better," Dr Mountain said. "I think we've been clear in the past in saying if we hadn't done anything this winter would have been catastrophic."

North ready to Fowler to Rooney: pick up the pieces Come to Perth! WA Labor's surprise stance Minister threatens to use law to on detention centre force people on NBN if states revolt

There's no rest for WA captain Marcus North after returning from Australia's unsuccessful Test tour of India. And he will have his work cut out for him. WA was obliterated by Brad Hodge and his Victorian teammates in its opening Ryobi One-Day Cup game before the Bushrangers completed its wild-west jaunt with a comprehensive seven-wicket win in the Sheffield Shield. The Warriors then headed to suburban Sydney to take on the NSW Blues in a one-dayer on Sunday and despite a terrific century from opener Liam Davis, the home-side was able to reel in WA's modest total of 224 with five wickets to spare. Aside from the bleak start to the season, coach Mickey Arthur has also had to deal with a dearth of experienced pace bowlers. Ashley Noffke retired from Shield cricket after the debacle against the Vics and was then told he won't be playing any part - on the field at least - in the oneday and Twenty20 competitions. Brad Knowles will miss the rest of the season due to a knee injury while Steve Magoffin (knee) is still weeks away from a return. Brett Dorey, who is on the comeback trail from an Achilles tendon injury, hit another hurdle in last Sunday's One-Day Cup loss when he split his left big toe and was admitted to a Perth hospital on his team's return home. He will be unavailable for at least the next two weeks. But 31-year-old North wasn't ready to hit the panic button just yet, preferring to wait until after

WA's leader of the opposition Eric Ripper has come out against federal government plans to house up to 1500 asylum seekers at a disused army base in the Wheatbelt town of Northam. Mr Ripper says WA is housing too many asylum seekers and the job should be shared out with the other states. His line breaks ranks with his Labor colleagues in Canberra and appears more in tune with WA's Liberal Premier Colin Barnett, who has previously called for other states to share the burden. In WA, single male asylum seekers are already housed at the Curtin Detention Centre in the Kimberley while asylum seeker families are housed at a disused mining camp at Leonora in the Goldfields. Mr Ripper said federal government plans announced on Monday to house up to 1500 single male asylum seekers at the disused army base in Northam was "too much" and the load should be spread. "It's not being shared out fairly among the states at the moment," he told ABC Radio. Mr Ripper said Mr Barnett may now regret writing to former immigration

minister Chris Evans suggesting Northam as a site for a detention centre.

He said the premier was trying to "have his cake and eat it too" by now expressing concerns about safety and security in Northam if 1500 single male asylum seekers were housed there.

Communications Minister Senator Stephen Conroy said he will wield federal law as a weapon to force people on to the national broadband network (NBN) if the states and territories don't make connections mandatory. Some consumers are opposed to the NBN because they fear the costs of their phone lines and broadband will increase. Because of misreporting in the media, some also fear they will lose their fixed-line phone services, according to Conroy. Others are opposed to the $43 billion cost of building the network, of which up to $27 billion will be footed by taxpayers. Conroy has said that the current copper service will be turned off as each home and business is connected to the NBN. He has reassured consumers that they will not be worse off by connecting to the NBN. But he said that, if they do not switch, then they will not have a phone line or access to ADSL broadband when the copper network is decommissioned. The NBN is being rolled out in Tasmania first. Connecting to the network there is optional and free initially. It is expected that there will be no cost to connect to the NBN initially when it is rolled out nationally.

But Senator Conroy has reiterated the government's intention to make it compulsory to connect to the NBN as it is being rolled out. "We are working our way through the issues with the states and ... we ultimately would consider, if we can't reach settlement, mandating it through the Federal Parliament. But we prefer to be engaged with the states," Senator Conroy said, speaking to this website at Parliament House yesterday. He added that the federal government had not "exhausted those conversations yet". He also said that the matter of a connection being mandated was "not a new issue". "[We've been] having a conversation with the states for over 12 months on this very issue," he said. "This is not a new issue. Malcolm Turnbull might have discovered it recently but it has actually been on the agenda. And we've actually been saying for quite some considerable time: as we disconnect the copper we'll be connecting the fibre." Last Friday, watoday.com.au reported it would cost up to $300 to connect to the NBN if a house or business did not consent to connecting to it as it was rolled out initially. Connecting to the NBN is optional and free while it is being rolled out now in Tasmania. It is unclear if a cost will be involved after the initial roll-out in other states and territories.

Butto Mr win Barnett said was surprised at the upcoming road trip was positions thehe game, Mr Ripper's stance on the issue. completed before making which we probably saw last It may be a massive long shot mega-rich man, even he would stuff for Perth, their ambitions "A strange position for a Labor leader in Western NSW."

Shire of Ashburton denies Wildlife Watch: Chevron accommodation proposal Boobook Owl The Shire of Ashburton has rejected a proposal by US oil giant Chevron to house its workers in the vicinity of the proposed Wheatstone Liquid Natural Gas Project 15kms to the south west of the town of Onslow, stating that it would result in a two town scenario. Shire of Ashburton Council, at its ordinary meeting held on 20 October 2010, considered the matter of accommodation arrangements for Chevron’s operational workforce. Chevron proposed that 75 per cent of the operational workforce which would comprise of almost 300 to 400 workers would be accommodated in transient accommodation. The company argued that due to the lack of utilities in Onslow, particularly power, water, waste water, as well as the lack of social infrastructure, including medical, emergency and daycare services it made it inappropriate to locate the operational workforce in the town. The company also suggested that costs involved in housing staff in town could be a significant issue. Council, after considering the matter, decided that it would not support a company sponsored

amendment to the Shire’s Planning Scheme which would have enabled the company to base its operational workforce in the vicinity of the proposed LNG plant for the 50-year life of the project. Council did, however, resolve that it would support a planning scheme amendment which would enable the LNG project to proceed, but with a workforce based in Onslow. When questioned on the matter, Shire President Greg Musgrave said: “The Shire is excited by the possibility of Chevron constructing the proposed Wheatstone LNG project on the proposed Ashburton North Strategic Industrial Area, particularly as it will represent the first major step in the development of the proposed hydro carbon precinct.

not need to be in place for five years and this leaves sufficient time for hard and social infrastructure to be put in place within the town. “The Shire is in fact, working proactively with both the company and relevant State Government agencies to address these and other planning matters in order to ensure the projects success. “The Shire is particularly concerned that the construction of an operational workforce accommodation facility adjacent the Wheatstone LNG facility would set an unacceptable precedent whereby future operators of developments in the hydro carbon industrial hub would also accommodate staff in the same location.

The Shire is, however, of the opinion that development must not be to the detrment of the local community and Onslow in particular.”

This would result in a ‘two town scenario’ with 700-800 workers located in a ‘workers village adjacent to the industrial development but also cose to Onslow for the next 50 years or more.”

He stated: “While the Shire appreciate the company’s comments relating to existing infrastructure in Onslow, the fact remains that the operational workforce accommodation does

He concluded by saying that “The Shire will continue to work with the company and the State Government, in order to reach an outcome that meets the needs of all parties.”

When Fiona and her family moved to Karratha earlier this year, her two young Rag Dolls Kenny and Kaylee also made the move. After only 3 weeks Kenny failed to return home one evening. Fiona searched everywhere to no avail. She then registered his disappearance with SAFE, the Vets and the Shire Ranger. Fortunately Kenny was found two weeks later. He had travelled nearly 1½ kilometers and had even managed to cross a busy road. When he was handed into SAFE, Sue recognized him and returned him to Fiona and her family. Having nearly lost Kenny, Fiona decided to get both her cats microchipped. Then in early September when Fiona was visiting

Coral Bay, her friend who was looking after the cats told her the awful news that Kaylee was now missing. Again Fiona searched everywhere. She contacted SAFE and even erected a “Missing Cat” sign. With no sign of Kaylee in 6 weeks, Fiona sadly accepted the fact that she may never see her again. Meanwhile over in Dampier, Irene had noticed a pretty Rag Doll had been roaming the streets for a number of weeks. She thought the cat was too pretty to be a stray so she contacted SAFE. Our hard working volunteer Nel drove out to Dampier to collect the cat. To everyone’s relief, when Nel scanned the cat it was Kaylee. Fiona and her family were

Pilbara Wildlife Carers Association

thrilled to be reunited with her. Fiona believes Kaylee stowed away on the neighbours’ boat. She thinks Kaylee would have been having a nap when she had an unexpected joyride to Dampier when her neighbour went to launch his boat. She then managed to survive on the streets for 6 weeks which would have been a challenge for a pampered Rag Doll. Kenny and Kaylee are now indoor cats. Even though they are microchipped, Fiona hopes they will never need to be scanned again. Thanks to all who helped bring both cats safely home. Especially Irene, who acted when she noticed an animal in need.

This little owl is found throughout Australia and is the countries smallest and most abundant owl. It’s also known as the ‘mopoke’ after its call. Boobook owls are usually sedentary and roost during the day in dense foliage of trees. It is often seen in towns and suburbs where there are abundant trees. They usually live in pairs or family parties but usually only single birds are seen as each bird has a number of different roosts. This little owl will not usually fly off when people walk past, unlike some of the other owls, but rather sit stiffly upright or turn sideways as to ’not be seen’ similar to the frogmouth. As with all owls they make a

nest in the hollow of a tree and lay between two to four eggs. Breeding season is between September and November. Both parents feed the young and sometimes a second female. It is important to remember that dead trees are just as important as live ones as there are many birds that utilize the hollow branches for nesting and the destruction of habitat is the cause of many bird species demise. These owls eat small birds, small mammals and invertebrates. It actually eats more invertebrates than any other Australian owl. They hunt by stealth and as with all owls their feather structure allows silent flight.

Pilbara Regiment initiates indigenous training By CAPT Matthew Hearne

• Chaylean Sampi and Michael Bailey

Tree planting at Rio Tinto School students were invited onto Rio Tinto’s Pilbara ports recently to plant trees as part of a site rehabilitation program. Year six and seven students from Wickham planted trees at Cape Lambert port while students from Dampier planted trees at Parker Point. A total of 300 native trees were planted from the Pilbara Indigenous Nursery including species of acacia, eucalyptus and senna. Rio Tinto’s general manager of coastal operations Mike Spreadborough said it was a chance to educate young community members about the importance of sustainability and caring for the environment. “The students were exposed to Rio Tinto’s health and safety expectations and were encouraged to take home and implement this new found knowledge,” Mike said. “As well as being educational, for many students it was their first time on site, providing them with the opportunity to see where some of their friends and family work.”

From October 5 - 13, The Pilbara Regiment hosted Major Pauline Mortenson of the Defence Directorate of Indigenous Affairs and Major John Lotu of the North West Mobile Force based in Darwin. The team, accompanied by The Pilbara Regiment’s Chaplain Ivan Grant and Captain Matthew Hearne, toured the Pilbara region from Port Hedland through Exmouth, Carnarvon and Newman and all places in between in order to develop better cultural awareness training for the Pilbara Regiment. The team met with the Regiment’s soldiers, community members and industry representatives to determine cultural practices of which Pilbara Regiment soldiers need to be

aware when operating in the area. The Pilbara Regiment is comprised primarily of Reserve soldiers. However, each year members of the Australian Regular Army are posted in to various locations. The training being developed will initially be delivered to both Reserve and Regular Army personnel during the January/ February 2011 induction period. Further to this, focused training is being developed for soldiers who work at the various depots spread throughout the region to give them greater and more specific information about local communities. The training will enhance the Pilbara Regiment’s ability to continue working to positive effect within and for the region.

The Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) has opened 44 new camping bays at Karijini National Park as part of ongoing upgrades to conservation and tourism infrastructure in the Pilbara. DEC Pilbara Region senior operations officer Geoff Passmore said the new camping bays at Warlu Loop are connected by paths to the popular campsite at Dales Recreation Area, where facilities include toilets, picnic areas and barbeques. “The addition of Warlu Loop, which forms part of six existing loops, will cater for large vehicles and group campers who until now had to use an overflow campsite 12km away,” Mr Passmore said. DEC has also recently upgraded the homestead at Mt Minnie, a former pastoral lease near Onslow that was purchased by the Government for conservation. “The improved caretaker facilities

include a new homestead roof, verandah, ceilings, internal walls and doors,” Mr Passmore said. “The caretaker carries out various activities on behalf of DEC, including fire management and feral animal control at Mt Minnie and Cane River Conservation Park, which enhances the department’s ability to uphold its management and good neighbour responsibilities in this remote area.” Both Pilbara projects were part of the Remote Regions Nature Conservation Program, where DEC employees with primary roles in the south-west visit remote regions to help implement on-ground parks and visitor services, nature conservation and infrastructure initiatives. Four conservation employees from DEC’s Walpole District worked at Mt Minnie for three weeks, while the Warlu Loop work was completed by four conservation employees from DEC’s Swan Region over a twoweek period.

With this fast approaching three out of the five squads have been making the trip out to Roebourne three nights a week to get in some valuable training. KASC would like to thank the staff at the Roebourne Aquatic Centre for providing them with pool space and their time which has allowed them to minimise disruption to the swimmers.

Movember is all about raising funds and awareness for depression and prostate cancer by encouraging men to gain sponsorship and grow a moustache during the month of November. With the Cup and bragging rights up for grabs, the BMX riders are getting a little worried that the Police may have to issue a couple of speeding fines to riders or conduct a couple of RBT’s to slow the kids down. The BMX Club would like to invite members of the public to come down to the track on Friday the 5th of November from 7.00 pm to help keep the Police honest. If you would like further information on the Karratha BMX Club or you are part of the Police team and would like some tips please email karrathabmx@ westnet.com.au .

With the end of the year fast approaching, the Karratha BMX season is winding up and October 22 saw the last night of points racing for 2010. It has been a big year for the BMX Club with riders travelling throughout the State and even across to the Northern Territory to compete. The riders at the BMX Club have been improving all season with the weekly coaching clinics and training sessions throughout the year. The serious race season may be over but the night that the kids look forward to the most is the first Friday in ‘Movember’. The last event of the year will be a fun night that will see the running of the 2010 Coppers Cup; the Coppers Cup is a race between

the Karratha BMX Club and the local Police. The Coppers Cup will see four police riders take to the track against four kids from the BMX Club. Over the last couple of years the police have not been up to the task with the kids claiming the Cup for the BMX Club. Hopefully this year the police have been able to get some training in and will provide some competition for the kids. The Coppers Cup is an opportunity for the Karratha BMX riders and the local Police to get together and have some fun as well as get to know each other. The night is used to promote Police in the community as well as raise funds for Movember; the BMX Club will donate money raised on the night to Movember.

It was an exciting night at the Nickol Way Speedway track as they played host for the WA State Solo and Sidecar Titles on October 23. All of the quad, motocross and junior riders put on a fantastic show at the start of the night and after a slight delay in the races starting, the night kicked off with the first of the 45 heats in total including motocross and quads. In the solos, Leigh Boujos was crowned the champion taking back to back titles with Daniel Winchester coming second and Louis Russell third. In the sidecars, Russell Mitchell and Tina Karen came away with the champion title, Darren Nash and Peter Teale came second and Vince Gianoncelli and Colin “Wax” Beeson from Karratha came third. Leigh Boujos, who only dropped one heat all night and Daniel Winchester both displayed their outstanding ability all night on the solos. Darren Nash was the crowd and sentimental favourite all night for the sidecars, but fuel problems denied him the title narrowly. Local riders Josh wells and Aiden Cutmore did a fantastic job filling in for an injured Lance Tulloch and were controversially denied a place in the final when their semi final was red flagged and restarted whilst they

held a comfortable lead. In the restart they pulled out with a front end problem. Diesel Morgan and Bray Wells performed very well and ended the night in 6th spot after having only put the bike together on the night and having no track time at all. Their Sidecar outfit was by far the best presented machine on show. Organisers of the meeting Lance Tulloch and Josh Wells, volunteers, supporters and sponsors all combined to make the WA State Titles a successful night. There were a few minor crashes with one bike even flipping off the start line. A few spills on the sidecars in the semi finals saw Vince Gianoncelli almost lose passenger Colin ‘Wax’ Beeson and in another incident Scott Charlesly went into the back of Josh Wells, throwing Aiden Cutmore from the bike. In the final, Darren Nash made contact with Ralph McQueen and his passenger. Steve McQueen was knocked from the bike in a top speed crash that saw Steve cart wheel half way down the back, straight in what looked like a night ending crash. Steve managed to get back on the bike and finished fourth in the final and was later diagnosed with a fractured shoulder and wrist.
