Attempted abduction Parents this week are being told to remind their children about potential dangers they may encounter while walking to school. It was reported by Karratha Primary School that on the morning of the 31st August, a male person had attempted to coerce a female student into his vehicle before school. The student immediately went straight to the school to report it. The parents and the police were called and have taken control of the matter. The student

Karratha local joins new chaplaincy program Nathan Baxter, a YouthCARE school chaplain at Karratha Senior High School recently became part of a team of 83 YouthCARE Chaplains aross the state who are commissioned to provide emotional guidance, pastoral care and support to members of the school community in the aftermath of disasters or accidents. The Pastoral Critical Incident Response (PCIR), is a multidisciplinary, multi-agency approach to critical incidences in WA school communities and is a collaborative effort between the Department of Education and YouthCARE, WA’s largest service provider of chaplaincy services in public schools. The PCIR program was launched by the Hon Dr Elizabeth Constable MLA (Minister for Education; Tourism) in Perth on 30 November 2010. YouthCARE CEO Stanley

Jeyaraj said the PCIR initiative was not about providing clinical help. “YouthCARE school chaplains are trained to provide pastoral care and support and it is our duty to assist those who are experiencing severe stress, resulting from critical incidents such as accidents, deaths or disasters such as fire,” she said. “Individuals all respond differently to trauma, no matter how big or small, and those affected will be encouraged and referred to seek psychological, medical and other professional assistance.” YouthCARE school chaplains appointed to the PCIR program underwent stringent psychometric testing, interviews and training which were conducted by Dr David Cockram - one of the best qualified PCIR trainers in the country.

Head of YouthCARE Chaplaincy Services, Fiona Beermier, said the PCIR has the benefit of supporting a multi-agency and multidisciplinary approach to post incident recovery, incorporating best practice principles and doing no harm. “Command and control will be established between the Department of Education and YouthCARE - whereby YouthCARE PCIR school chaplains will be mobilised to sites to support and assist children and adults to return to duty, to the classroom or to the community, as soon as is reasonably possible” she said.

Karratha assault Karratha detectives are seeking further information on a sexual assault which occurred on Saturday morning (4 December 2010). About 2:00am, a 19 year old woman was walking towards Balmoral Road along a footbridge near Walters park, when she was grabbed from behind my a man and

sexually assaulted. The woman screamed for help and was able to break free and call police, causing the man to run away. The man is described as possibly of Aboriginal descent, in his late 30’s to early 40 years of age, approximately 185cms tall, slim to medium build with bushy dark hair and a greying

The Pilbara Poet

FREE WEEKLY 11 - 12 December 2010

Elise Batchelor

With the school year winding up and eyes spying holidays, here’s a poem to regale those of you who have children to clean, pack, stack and pile into the family car.

It comes with a big howdy to all the kids transitioning from primary to high school next year. Play it loud, ok!

Why? What? How? When? Where? Which? Phew! Who owns the snot on the bench? And where did you get Dad’s big wrench?! And who, oh my (don’t cry don’t cry) has released that most vanquishing stench? Now what’s with the Araldite darling? That mud, how’d it get on the tiling? And worse still than that, how’d it get on the cat and the carpet and bedspread and…ceiling?!

It’s yellow and red, lumpy and bumpy. You look like a squished Humpty Dumpty. Do we need a doc? Let me take a look. It’s THE JELLY! You see this face? GRUMPY! Be careful, my glasses I – arrrghgh! You’ve snapped off the arm, superstar. Come on, we are late. Just one shoe on? Oh great. No you can’t wear that out; it’s my bra!

Why are you wearing odd socks? And back to front inside out jocks with shorts underneath and my spray tan, good grief! And no, you can’t have a pet fox. Now where in the fridge is the jelly? Get rid of those odd socks, they’re smelly. Turn off that tv, I know it’s ABC, but it’s time and…what’s that on your belly?!

Now, where are my keys, can’t remember. I’ve hung them up here since September. We really must go, before Christmas, you know. Oh what! How’d they get in the blender? Banana, milk, basil and keys, quite bent out of shape, if you please. The splatter’s horrific, we’re stuck here, terrific. Hang on…what’s that I smell? Cheese?!

Karratha Arts and Learning Centre celebrate 30 years Nearly 30 years ago, The Karratha/ Dampier Art & Craft Group celebrated the opening of their brand new building in Richardson Way on 18th February 1981. The Centre was officially opened by Dr A Walkington, Director of the then Karratha College, with a large crowd in attendance. The group’s name was later changed to the Karratha Arts & Learning Centre when it amalgamated with the Karratha Neighbourhood Centre. In honour of this significant milestone they are planning a 30th Anniversary celebration and need your help. Were you a founding member of at the opening in 1981?

They want to see any memorabilia such as photos or documents you may have that can be included in a display. You may still be in touch with past members and can help them with contacting them. All enquiries and input most welcome, please contact Gail Gates 91854391 or Robyn Rayson 91851601. Please keep you eye out for more information on the celebration which will be held at the Centre on Friday 18th February 2011.

Land access deed signed in Tom Price In Tom Price this week, the Nyiyaparli people signed a Land Access Deed with Iron Ore Holdings Ltd (IOH) that delivers important protection for country and support to the Iron Valley project. Nyiyaparli country is situated in the central Pilbara region of Western Australia and covers approximately 36,684 square kilometres of land, including the mining town of Newman. The agreement, which covers the Iron Valley project, provides a range of benefits to the Nyiyaparli people including contracting opportunities, cross cultural awareness training for IOH employees and a rigorous framework for agreement implementation. More importantly the agreement provides for

consultation on environmental and heritage matters, which allows the Nyiyaparli people to retain their rights under Aboriginal heritage and environment legislation in order to protect areas of cultural and environmental significance. The Nyiyaparli people, who are represented by Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation (YMAC), are now looking to build upon the spirit of cooperation and good faith they developed with IOH during the agreement negotiation process. Simon Hawkins, CEO, Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation, said the agreement was an example of a mining company working cooperatively and negotiating in good faith with Traditional Owners. “The Nyiyaparli people

Snakes on the move As the mercury continues to rise, the Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) is reminding people to beware of snakes as they emerge from their winter hiding spots. DEC Regional Wildlife officer Ann Biasol said snakes were likely to be active during the next couple of months as they looked for mates and fed to replenish their energy after their inactivity during winter. “Most snake bites occur when people accidentally step on a snake or attempt to kill it, but when left alone, snakes present little or no danger to people,” Ms Biasol said. “Snakes and lizards are a fascinating part of the urban wildlife scene. Several species are common but not always commonly seen, and they all play an important part in our

ecology. “Residents can reduce the risk of having a snake in their backyard by keeping their yards clear of discarded household items, which provide them with shelter.” Other safety tips and how to reduce the chances of snakes coming into your yard are; remove food or shelter suitable for snakes or their prey by removing rubbish piles and sheets of tin; keep grass short; wear protective footwear in long grass and carry a torch outside at night; wear gloves while gardening; and learn to identify the snakes in your area and learn first aid treatment for snakebites. “Snakes will normally try to avoid humans, however people still need to be vigilant and take precautions such as wearing long pants and enclosed shoes when walking to avoid being bitten” she said.

POLICEWATCH Concerned counterfeit notes are not fake By Senior Constable Newby We have recently had a number or reports concerning counterfeit $50 notes. THEY ARE NOT COUNTERFEIT. The notes are mistakenly believed to be counterfeit as they do not display the words "EDITH COWAN" or "DAVID UNAIPON" under the images on each side. There are also different signatures on the front top left, the side with David Unaipon pictured. The reason for the differences is the RBA decided to include the names of the images to make them more recognisable. There have also been changes in the hierarchy of the RBA and as such the signatures have changed over time. There are a number of security features on the notes to help you identify any suspected counterfeit notes, to see the list visit the RBA website at www.rba.gov.au/ banknotes/index.html

Ashburton Aboriginal Biodiesel Plant launched The Hon Wendy Duncan MLC, Member for the Mining and Pastoral Region, was in Tom Price this week to officially launch the Ashburton Aboriginal Corporation’s (ACC) Biodiesel Plant alongside Rio Tinto’s Greg Lillyman. Ms Duncan said that the Royalties for Regions funded $145,000 towards the operation. It would provide long term Indigenous employment as well as industrial skills training, which will assist people to move into employment in the mining sector. “ACC has a supply agreement with Rio Tinto to supply between 5000 and 7000 litres per week of bio fuel which will be used for drilling and blasting at their Tom Price mine” said Ms Duncan. “Profits from the Biodiesel Plant will stay within the Indigenous communities of

the Pilbara, which will enable further funding for social and economic development”. While at Tom Price, Ms Duncan was assisted by ACC’s Doreen James in planting a Moringa tree. A four acre plantation of the trees is being trialed for biodiesel production with irrigation from mine dewatering. Ms Duncan said that Royalties for Regions had contributed $150,000 towards the planting project which would determine if Moringa crops can produce an economically viable biodiesel. Ms Duncan said that successful community partnership between the ACC and Rio Tinto would mean that used cooking oil from mines will also be collected and converted to biodiesel fuel, adding to the projects long term viability.

Pindan College students graduate successfully

• Blayke Passmore collects his graduation certicate from Dr Nancy Rees.

• Brent Martin is presented his certificate from Dr Nancy Rees

• James Milliken, MC Andrew Collins and Dr Nancy Rees

• Jessica Bartlett receives her graduation certificate from Dr Nancy Rees

• Jessica O’Dowd is presented her certificate from Dr Nancy Rees

• Josh Reid is presented his graduation certificate from Dr Nancy Rees

Pindan College is proud to announce the achievements of its 25 graduating students, who successfully completed the requirements for graduation from the College’s transition program. The College and many proud parents celebrated with two graduation ceremonies, held last week at the C3 Church in South Hedland and the Karratha Education and Training Precinct on 7 December. In Karratha the ceremony was led by MC Andrew Collins from ABC with a Welcome to Country by local Josie Samson. Speeches were delivered by CEO Dr Nancy Rees, Peter Gaiter the Campus Manager of Pindan College, student Jamie Milliken and even MP Barry Haase talked to the students about working hard to achieve goals. The State Government has endorsed the College’s unique education and training program. It is designed to support initiatives outlined in the Aboriginal Workforce Development Strategy to boost training and employment opportunities for Aboriginal people. This was announced in June by Training and Workforce Development Minister Peter Collier. CEO Dr Nancy Rees said the students should be extremely proud of their achievements.

“Almost 90% of our graduating students have secured apprenticeships and the remainder are waiting to hear the outcome of their interview. This is an excellent result for our students and testament to their hard work and determination,” Dr Rees said. “It has been a privilege to see the students grow and mature throughout their training, to the point where they are confident to enter the workforce and begin their career.” “The graduation ceremonies serve as an opportunity to congratulate the students on their efforts and share their success with staff, family and the local community,” Dr Rees added. Pindan College’s training program focuses on building core employability skills and life skills to ensure students develop the confidence, resilience and aptitude to succeed in the workplace. The College provides the highest number of work contact hours than any other Pilbara training provider and has strong partnerships with industry, meaning students have a clear pathway to employment. Pindan College will continue to support and mentor its graduating students throughout their apprenticeships.

Carols by Glowlight brings music to the Pilbara The Karratha and Dampier community celebrated the joy of the Christmas spirit as they gathered on Hampton Oval by the palms in Dampier to watch the Carols by Glowlight concert on 5 December. Over 600 people turned up to the annual event which was their biggest crowd in years. The choir, combined of the churches of Karratha sang a variety of traditional Christmas carols including Silent Night, Away in a Manger and O Come, All Ye Faithful. Mrs Anika Moore sang a harmonious version of The Christmas Hope and the band finished on a high with We Wish You a Merry Christmas. Throughout the night the Christmas story was read from the bible in short sections and students from St Paul’s Primary acted out the scenes. The children really enjoyed performing and were so enthusiastic. The costumes were spectacular, in particular the angels. Organiser Ivan Grant was overwhelmed by the amount of people that attended and that all of the glowsticks had sold out before the carols had even begun. “Sometimes you get the impression from people that Karratha is a mining town without a heart, but carols this year proved them wrong,” he said. “This years Carols was well

supported by community organisations and industry large and small; the Local Churches came together with the band, choir and organisation; but most importantly the community came together in droves, we had the biggest turn out in years. “It was great to see families and friends coming together to share in the joy and hope that is Christmas. “Chaplain Richard Goscombe’s Aussie Christmas skit was a hit and reminded us all that the real hope of Christmas is not centered on presents or parties but on the birth of Jesus Christ. “All up close on $2000 was raised for Youth care so the vital work of our high school chaplain can continue.” As well as the festive entertainment that was provided, various stalls from local organisations attended such as WaterCorp, Lions Karratha and the Rotary Club. Ivan Grant commented that the event couldn’t have happened without the generous support of sponsors. These are Pilbara Echo, Shire of Roebourne, Army Reserves Pilbara Regiment, Global Security Management, Onsite Rental Group, Signature Music, TyrePower, NW 4WD Megastores, 2K Plastic, Water Corp, Pilbara News, YMCA, Rotary International, Lions Karratha, Karratha Scouts and DeesCees Icecream.

Six spectacular shows 325 dancers and over 1000 costumes took to the stage on 3, 4 and 5 December as they performed the Dance Kix Karratha end of year show to a full house at the Walkington, with over 40 separate routines choreographed. With so many students ranging from age 4 to ladies open age, the performance had to be split over the three days with two performances a day. As the seniors showcased their dancing talent, they performed routines to chart hits such as Oh My God, Maneater and Transform Ya. The juniors danced along to hits such as In My Head, I Like to Move It and Sexy Chick. Founder and owner of DKK, Kristie Brown teaches jazz, contemporary, tap and boys only at her dance school. She said all of the students had worked so hard throughout the year which was clearly demonstrated in the concerts. “All four shows were a huge success and I’m feeling a little sad that all the dances we worked on all year have been performed, as I won’t get to see them again!” she said. “I definitely shed a few tears at the shows this year”.

“I’m extremely impressed and proud of my four teachers, all of which have been dancing with me since I started teaching for Karratha School of Dance in 1997. “It’s so wonderful to have such a professional team that know exactly what I want, yet have the creativity to produce their own pieces diligently. “Cassandra Harmsworth for her 2nd year teaching tap, Yolande Hudson and Kylie Bassett for their first year with DKK teaching Lil Tackers, Grade 1 and 2 Jazz and Lil Boys and also Ky Nuttal for Big Boys Classes.” “A huge team effort from everyone and special thanks to all the sponsors of this years performances.” After the dance routines, the presentations followed whereby each student received a medallion for participation and chosen students were awarded for Most Improved, Encouragement and Achievement awards. Over 80 trophies were given out in total. Junior student Shae Camisa and senior student

Jaye Carter both received a dedication shield for their continuous hard work and efforts. DKK would like to thank the following sponsors; Desert Rose, Coral Coast Print, In Time Mechanical, Holcim, Keyspot, Mitre 10, SpinFX Audio, Rio Tinto, Pilbara Glass, Enduro Homes, Kanga Van, Latily Maha, Websites by April. Your support was overwhelming. DVDs produced by SpinFX Audio are available to order via www.dancekixkarratha.com 2011 enrollments can also be filled out online. DKK are currently looking for a new venue for 2011 to accommodate their growing number of students with the aim to irradicate waiting lists for the children of Karratha as they all deserve to dance. Anyone who can assist can call Kristie Brown on 0417 991 861 or email dancekixkarratha@ bigpond.com.

Chess fanatics from St Luke’s College have returned from Melbourne where they took part in the National Interschool Chess Championship. The Championships took place on 29 and 30 November, however the students from St Lukes’ spent five nights and enjoyed seeing the sights that vibrant Melbourne has to offer. Many of the students commented that although the competition was tough, their results were better than last year due to the structuring. The girls team came 5th in their league, the senior boys came 11th

and the two combined middle boys came 9th. Student Scott Hawkes enjoyed all the championships had to offer and loved sightseeing around Melbourne. “I thought it was full of awesomeness, there were lots of lectures to teach us new play tactics too,” he said. “We all really enjoyed it!”. When the students weren’t playing chess they visited Melbourne Zoo, the Eureka Skydeck and the movies, and went ten pin bowling, laser and go kart racing.

Since 1984 we’ve made significant investments in infrastructure and programs that support the Shire of Roebourne’s social, cultural and economic capacity, including the provision of roads, housing, health services and education. Every year Woodside and the North West Shelf Venture (NWSV) work with a range of local not-for-profit organisations which help make our community a great place to live and work.

Woodside and the North West Shelf Venture are proud to be long-standing members of the Shire of Roebourne.

Woodside Moonrise cinema Woodside has signed on again as the principal sponsor of the Moonrise Cinema at the Pilbara TAFE. The cinema offers unique family entertainment with block buster movies viewed under the stars. The funding has provided updated infrastructure and landscaping for community events and concerts.

Through our social investment programs we aim to contribute to a thriving community by focusing on these areas:

The Tambrey ELCC is a collaborative project between Woodside and the State and Federal government and officially opened in October 2010. The centre increases the amount of child care places available in the Shire of Roebourne and is operated by the YMCA.

Indigenous affairs Youth Arts and culture Community safety Recreation Health Education Town amenity

In 2010 we participated in the delivery of a range of community projects and partnerships, some of which are outlined in this feature. We look forward to continuing to work with our community partners in 2011.

comm -unity contribution Mingullatharndo (Five Mile) Community Indigenous Enterprise Capacity Project

Five Mile is located approximately 10 kilometres east of Roebourne. This project was set up to assist Mingullatharndo to become economically self sustainable through the development of community owned and managed business ventures. The project represents an innovative approach to assisting with local Indigenous business development, providing training opportunities and creating real employment outcomes. The first of the businesses, the Pilbara Indigenous Nursery officially opened at the beginning of 2010 and is now supplying native plants throughout the region.


Shire of Roebourne Crime and Safety Initiative

Warrgaumargardi Yirdiyuburrah (WY) program

Desert Red Earth Arts Festival (REAF)

This is a partnership between NWSV, WA Police and the Shire of Roebourne which aims to help reduce crime and increase safety in the community by providing additional resources for local police to implement targeted crime and safety programs.

The WY program focuses on increasing local community based employment and training opportunities for Indigenous people in Roebourne. It also aims to build the capacity of local community based organisations servicing the Roebourne Indigenous community. The program now offers two-year funded traineeship positions at a variety of community service organisations in Roebourne. Ten trainees were part of the 2010 intake.

The inaugural Desert REAF was held in the Shire of Roebourne and offered a unique opportunity for the community to engage in an exciting program of art and cultural activities not usually seen outside the metropolitan area. The festival closed with a street party in Sharpe Avenue which was attended by about 2,500 people and coincided with a visit by the WA Cabinet to the Shire of Roebourne.

Shire of Roebourne National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Celebrations Woodside and the NWSV were principal sponsors of the 2010 high profile celebrations which were lead by the Shire of Roebourne and supported by a variety of other sponsors. The NAIDOC week celebration aims to raise awareness about Indigenous culture and the Shire was a hive of activity with free events running throughout the community.

2010 Employee nominated community sponsorships Woodside d family fun day In June this year the Woodside ‘Fun for Everyone’ family day provided an event for local families to enjoy entertainment and a variety of activities at Tambrey Oval.

Woodside Karratha based employees and contractors are active, contributing members of the community and are involved with a range of local organisations. Employees were given the opportunity to nominate a local not-for-profit group to receive a sponsorship. In total 25 organisations received funding, ranging from local schools to sporting clubs.

National Trust photo and story competition – Valuing our heritage National Trust WA has once again been able to run the Pilbara category of the ‘Valuing Our Heritage Photo and Story Competition’ across schools in the Shire of Roebourne. The competition encourages children to learn about local history and heritage while developing literacy and photography skills. Woodside was the key sponsor for the Pilbara award.


karratha education initiative The Karratha Education Initiative (KEI) is a community investment program between the North West Shelf Venture, St Luke’s College, Karratha Senior High School (KSHS), the Department of Education and the Catholic Education office and has been running since 2007. It was developed to enrich local students’ educational experience by providing supplementary services and resources which enhance learning opportunities.

The KEI aims to improve the standard of secondary school education in the Karratha catchment, by delivering educational opportunities and outcomes for students equivalent to those in the metropolitan area. Since commencement of the KEI, KSHS and St Luke’s have experienced positive results from students. In 2010 both schools are expecting to achieve an increase in student graduation and since inception of the KEI there has been about a 10% increase in local high school graduation rates. The success of the KEI was recognised when the initiative won the Sustainable Community category of the 2010 Woodside Sustainable Development Awards. It is clear that the program is making a positive impact on the educational opportunities and outcomes of secondary students in the Shire of Roebourne. We believe that local children are entitled to an education that is equal to that offered at metropolitan schools.

2010 KEI programs Co-curricular activities – Solar Car and Textiles Programs In 2010, after school and holiday activities were offered to students from KSHS and St Luke’s. The programs were both designed to assist students in personal growth and development. In its third year, the Karratha Textiles project consisted of 10 students who designed and manufactured clothing which was entered into the Apex Junior Fashion Awards held in Perth. Four Karratha entries were finalists and proceeded to the state awards. The Western Power Solar Car Challenge held in Perth had 12 students participate from both schools. The students were split into teams and had to design, manufacture and race the model solar cars they produced. The challenge provided students the opportunity to practice skills in the areas of science, design, technology and teamwork. The Karratha team achieved the outstanding result of best new school in the competition.

After School Tutoring KSHS and St Luke’s have been providing ding g students with access to after-hours tutoring ing sessions four days a week. Students can attend the sessions and receive one-on-one tutoring in various subject areas. The tutoring sessions were available to all Year 10, 11 and 12 students from both high schools. All subject areas were offered and about 150 students participated throughout the year.

Class Room Management Strategy All level 3 teachers from KSHS are undertaking intensive professional development in Classroom Management which is conducted by the Department of Education and Training, giving teachers a broad range of practical interpersonal skills to be used in the classroom. Teachers can use the techniques to deal with all forms of classroom behaviour including confronting or challenging behaviour. The trained teachers will help roll out the program throughout the remaining teaching staff at the school in 2011.

TEE revision courses in Perth and Karratha Approximately 50 students from KSHS and St Luke’s attended intensive five day TEE revision courses at UWA. Students also had the opportunity to experience university life, mixing with other students on campus and residential colleges. This unique experience not only taught students to cope with the pressures of exams it also assisted in the transition from school to university life. Throughout 2010, lecturers from Perth also held sessions in Karratha and covered nine subject areas. In first semester six weekend-long sessions were held and in second semester, nine weekend-long sessions were offered and on average 40 students attended each weekend.

Thank you to all the teachers, students and parents for your ongoing support of the Karratha Education Initiative in 2010. You’ve all put in an amazing effort which has helped support quality education delivery in our town. We wish you all a very safe and happy festive season and look forward to another productive and exciting 2011.

Environmental Health Director Jim Dodds said amoebic meningitis was rare but inevitably fatal. “Amoebic meningitis can only occur if water containing the microscopic amoebae goes up the nose. The amoebae then make their way up the nerves and attack the brain,” Mr Dodds said. The organism that causes amoebic meningitis (Naegleria fowleri) can

The amoebae thrive in water that has a low salt content and is at temperatures between 28 and 40 degrees Celsius. “People should think safe when choosing where to swim this summer. “Only swim in water that you know to be safe, such as seawater and properly chlorinated pools. “As a general rule, people should avoid swimming in fresh natural water bodies that feel warm to the body. “These types of water

If you must swim, or enter into potentially hazardous water please ensure you follow the simple rules. Carefully walk or lower yourself into the water, keeping your head above water at all times. If there is a chance that your head will become submerged, using nose clips offers better protection than holding the nose, although holding the nose is better than letting water go up it. Do not jump into or duckdive in the water. Do not dig or stir up sediment.

If you’re staying in Karratha however, have you ever considered becoming a volunteer for SAFE (Saving Animals From Euthanasia)? SAFE are always in need of volunteers and foster carers throughout the year, but at Christmas time when the town’s population diminishes, the need is greater. Volunteers are needed at SAFE Headquarters to assist in many and varied ways from administration work to hands on work with the animals who come into SAFE’s care and everything in between! The position would be volunteer based but could lead to paid employment in the New Year. Another way in which help is needed is to become a foster carer, which involves temporarily looking

?

after a cat or dog until they find a permanent home. It could be for a day or for a year, but if your circumstances change SAFE will find another foster carer. Sue Hedley, SAFEs Founder and Karratha Co-Ordinator says there are many benefits for foster carers, such as the joy of having a pet without the long term commitment and knowing that you may be saving them from euthanasia.

!

“It provides the opportunity for anyone to find out what it is really like having a pet in their life,” she said. “It also gives people the opportunity to contribute to animal welfare and feel part of a society who value the lives of these creatures.” If you would like to become a volunteer or to find out more information on foster caring, please contact SAFE on 9185 4634 or visit the website www.safe.asn.au

young for the first few months. They mature at about 18 months of age. Fruit bats live upwards of 12 years of age, double that in captivity. We don’t tend to get too many fruit bats into care and when we do they are either adults that have been caught up in fencing, or babies that have fallen when their mother has been electrocuted on power lines. They are an intelligent and social animal and very endearing. They get their name from their fox like appearance. Some of the species of bats carry the Lyssavirus which is similar to rabies so anyone who is a carer for bats has to have an inoculation shot against picking this up from a bite or scratch. Bats are not ‘vicious’ (unlike a quoll) but there is always a risk when handling any wildlife that you will be bitten or scratched regardless of how careful you are.

PREMIER Colin Barnett has declared Western Australia must become selfreliant as the State gets a diminishing share of GST revenue and the East Coast grows jealous. On the day he gave a speech to a business forum in Perth, Mr Barnett also warned the prime minister her national policy plans could be in tatters now she can't ''simply force'' her agenda on to the states. Mr Barnett re-ignited the idea of secession by stating the current federal-state GST

Currently the state gets 68 cents in the dollar back in GST revenue which Mr Barnett said is costing WA more than $1 billion a year. On forward projections by the state's treasury, he said that figure would drop to 43 cent in the dollar by 2014. ''In fact if WA were to agree to the Rudd-Gillard health proposal and hand over one third of our share of GST, in 2014 we would be getting 13

state's economy would also fall from 46 per cent to 36 per cent in four years time. ''If that trend continues it means ... that this state has absolutely no option, we have to be more self reliant in all that we do and we have to integrate our economy ever more closely with the growth economies of Asia,'' he said.

He said Ted Baillieu's elec-

''That means one side of politics, if you like, won't be able to force their agenda and I think you'll find a far more even COAG front and issues like a carbon tax won't be able to be forced through by the Gillard government.''

Channel Seven revives Packed to the Rafters crash drama star Channel Seven will give up a prime time slot to re-run Tuesday's drama-filled episode of Packed to the Rafters after a flood of calls from viewers. The decision to kill off popular character Mel Rafter in a car crash delivered the program an estimated audience of 2.33 million but the network says many fans complained they had missed the show because they were out celebrating the Melbourne Cup. An encore screening has been announced for 9.30pm next Monday night, bumping out an episode of Criminal Minds. "We do encore screenings all the time during the day, but not usually in prime time like this," a Seven spokeswoman said. "The reaction we've had has been pretty huge. We've had a lot of people ringing up saying they'd missed it because of the Cup or had read about what happened and now they wanted to see it." The race that stops the nation only narrowly beat Packed to the Rafters on Tuesday night, pulling an estimated 2.59 million viewers nationally. For weeks fans of the hit family drama had known a death was imminent, but the killing of Mel in a car crash enroute to a romantic rendezvous with her husband Ben Rafter caught scores offside Social media buzzed with surprise, upset and even anger at the shock plot twist, which was written to allow actress Zoe Ventoura to leave

Australia to pursue a career in America. "(The producers) didn't give us options (about Mel's exit) but I trusted that they would handle it with the utmost respect and dignity and the best way possible, which they did, and I'm so humbled that they trusted me with this storyline," Ventoura told Seven's Sunrise program from LA yesterday. "I just didn't think it would cause this much hoo-ha, it's amazing." Hugh Sheridan, who plays Ventoura's onscreen husband, later proved his Logie-winning drama credentials on Twitter, comparing Mel Rafter's funeral in an upcoming episode to Princess Diana's. Ventoura, who is auditioning for roles in the US, said it was too early for fans to put away the tissues, with the following couple of episodes also promising some tear-jerking moments as the family come to terms with Mel's death. "The next couple of episodes are also gutwrenching but beautifully done so we're really proud of them," she said. "If you thought last night was heart-breaking, I think next week is worse." Promos for the episodes show Ben Rafter being visited by his dead wife. Packed to the Rafters averages about 1.8 million viewers a week and is now in its third season. - with AAP

Coming in 2012 ... Daniel Craig as James Bond

James Bond lives another day Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer has filed for bankruptcy, marking a climax to a drawn-out restructuring for the storied Hollywood studio that controls the James Bond films and made The Wizard of Oz. The Chapter 11 filing follows last week's vote by creditors to support a prepackaged bankruptcy in which MGM will shed more than $4 billion of debt and hand control to its secured lenders. Management would be assumed by Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum, who run the Spyglass Entertainment film company. The move is said to have no impact on MGM's two major pipeline projects including the new Bond film and Sir Peter Jackson's $500 million The Hobbit series. Industry pundits say the bankruptcy declaration and restructure will actually clear the path for the $200 million Bond project - the 23rd film in the super-spy franchise - to get moving after the company's financial woes saw it shelved in July. "What matters to movie fans is that MGM plans to have the next Bond film in theaters by Nov. 2012, with another coming every other year afterward," NBC reported in the wake of the court filing. Sam Mendes is rumoured to be in line to direct the Bond film, with Daniel Craig expected to reprise the role of 007. The Hobbit meanwhile, was given the green light by studio partners MGM, New Line Cinema and Warner Bros last month,

despite an ongoing labor dispute involving the cast in New Zealand. MGM filed for protection from creditors overnight after striking an agreement with Carl Icahn, one of its largest debtholders, to win the billionaire's support for a restructuring. Icahn previously supported a bid to merge MGM with another studio, Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. MGM also said its secured lenders overwhelmingly support the reorganization. MGM was founded in 1924 and is known for its roaring lion logo. It has produced, released, or controls many of Hollywood's best-known films, including Ben-Hur and the Pink Panther and Rocky film series. Spyglass' involvement with MGM has also been seen as key to a lucrative arrangement with Time Warner Inc's Warner Bros Pictures and Jackson to make The Hobbit. The news comes just days after crime writer Jeffery Deaver announced an image overhaul for 007 in his new, as-yet untitled James Bond novel, due for release in May. "The novel is set in the present day, in 2011," Deaver said. "Bond is a young agent for the British secret service. He's 29 or 30 years old, and he's an Afghan war vet." Craig, the current Bond, is 42, and the literary 007, created by Ian Fleming in the 1950s, would be close to 90. Whether the new Bond will be adapted for

the screen is uncertain. MGM has struggled with too much debt since 2005 when it was sold in a $2.85 billion leveraged buyout. The buyout group included private equity firms Providence Equity Partners, TPG Capital LP, Quadrangle Group and DLJ Merchant Banking Partners, as well as Comcast Corp and Sony Corp. MGM said it expects a federal bankruptcy judge to approve the restructuring in about 30 days. The company sought court approval to spend up to $125 million on operations in the next 15 weeks. This may include sums for The Hobbit, a prequel to The Lord of the Rings trilogy, which grossed $3 billion globally, court papers show. Stephen Cooper, MGM's co-chief executive, in a statement said the reorganization will improve MGM's finances by "sharply reducing" debt and providing access to new capital. MGM said it expects to raise $500 million upon emerging from bankruptcy to fund operations, including the production of films and TV series. Spyglass films have included The Sixth Sense in 1999 and Dinner for Schmucks earlier this year. Lions Gate had proposed a merger with MGM that would have given creditors a 55 percent stake in the combined company. - with REUTERS

Fantastic turnout for Mackerel fishing competition The Nickol Bay Sportfishing Club hosted the Auslec Mackerel Fishing Family Fun Day 2010 on Sunday 5 December. This is the third year the club has hosted this increasingly popular event and a record number of 46 teams with 141 competitors took part. This year the sponsorship of the competition significantly increased and competitors chased a prize pool in excess of $4500. Despite the windy weather a great day on the water was had by all and a few great catches were made. Angler John Wheelahan took out the top prize of $1000 Auslec cash prize for the overall heaviest mackerel which was a 17.2 Kg narrow barred (n.b.) Spanish mackerel. Tiffiny Kelly won the female category with a 15.1 Kg nb Spanish mackerel, closely followed by Kelly Bakers 8.6 Kg nb mackerel and the 3rd placed female was Unna Westcombe with a 6.05 Kg nb mackerel. The adult male section was won by Jason Hornhardt with a 12.75 Kg nb Spanish mackerel and second

• Tiffany Kelly - Winner of the female category

prize went to Hamish Mcleod with a 10.1Kg nb Spanish mackerel. The winning male and female anglers won a quality Fin Nor gamefishing spinning combo from Adventure Sports and Fin Nor as well as lures from Halco, Shimano and Pirtek products including fishing reel care spray and sporting equipment. All runners up also won fantastic Shimano lures and Pirtek products. The catch of the day for the non-narrow barred heaviest mackerel prize was taken out by Cody Carpenter with a 1.16 doggie mackerel, not a large fish by any standards but enough to win a fantastic Daiwa Saltist combo from Daiwa and Adventures Sports, which just goes to show that biggest is not always the best. Cody explained to the crowd how he managed to wrestle this beast aboard the boat after an extensive fight lasting two minutes. There were also fantastic door prizes and lucky angler Ryan Turner walked away with a new to market release Daiwa rod and reel combo. There were also many give aways and plenty of door prizes for the competitors who came back

to the Hampton Harbour Boat and Sailing Club for the presentation and BBQ. This entry level competition was aimed at anyone who could wet a line and there were no line class restrictions or sport fishing rules to follow for most of the prizes. It was encouraging to see so many new comers who hadn’t previously entered a fishing competition joining in. All the junior and subjunior anglers who attended the presentation were awarded Shimano and Halco lure products as well as Pirtek products. The Nickol Bay Sportfishing Club thanks all competitors for being good sports and getting out on the water with their families and friends and looks forward to seeing you all at next year’s competition. The club would like to say a very special thank you to sponsors Auslec, Adventure Sports, Daiwa Australia, Shimano Fishing, Halco Lures, Pirtek, Fin-Nor, JG Graphix Signs and Designs for contributing so much and to Spirit Radio and The Pilbara Echo for their promotion of this event.

Karratha girls basketball team return from Melbourne On the 12th of November Janice Tommy and Cindy Dunn took an under 18’s Indigenous girls team to Melbourne to participate in the National Indigenous Basketball Competition. Unfortunately due to unforseen circumstances three girls could not attend. They arrived in Melbourne with only four players and a bit stressed, but pulling out of the comp was not an option. Lucky for them, a player in the Women’s A team had her two younger sisters there who made up the numbers. The weather wasn’t on their side either with lots of rain and very cold wind. They had five teams in their division including themselves. They played their first game against South Australia and drew. Their second game was against Yalari which they won, the third game was against Vic Eagles which they also won and their last game was against Vic Stars. Unfortunately they did not win that game, but the girls did exceptionally well, to say only four of the six girls have ever played together. They came second on the ladder, which is when the controversy started. Unfortunately there was a mix up with fixtures and the girls didn’t know they were suppose to play the Vic Eagles, the referee scratched the game and the Karratha team were not happy. After Janice Tommy approached the organiser the problem was solved and the girls played Vic Eagles and won. On the day of the semi’s they put

• The Karratha under 18s Indigenous Girls Team

the Karratha team fourth on the ladder stating that they were late and received a penalty for every minute that the Karratha team were not there, without telling them. In spite of this the girls continued to demonstrate great sportsmanship. Sadly, due to the penalty they didn’t get to play in the grand final as they were rightfully suppose to, but the girls did extremely well being the first time competing at an event of this level. The Vic Stars won the grand final. On the last night the girls put basketball aside and took to Luna Park and had a great time. The Karratha team would really like to thank their sponsors for making it possible to attend this event. Without your support this could never have been possible. The sponsors were RioTinto, Savannah Engineering, Clayton from McDonalds Karratha, Sean and Mick Joyce of Mick Joyce Crane Hire and Handy Hands. They hope you will continue to support them in years to come. For anyone else or other businesses that are willing to support the girls next year any contributions/ donations will be greatly appreciated.

Red Earthlings prove to be undefeated The mixed social netball came to an end on Monday 6 December as the final 8th round was played. There was some competitive play from all the players hoping to win their last game although unfortunately a few teams didn’t show up. Angry Birds (32) defeated the FnC’s (27), Bintang Bandits (16) defeated Young Guns (14), Chameleons (18) defeated Scorpions (12), Tap It and Gap It played well drawing with Sir Mix-A-Lots (13), Pluto Pirates played an exceptional game winning with (24) against Weena’s Warriors (8), TI Tigers

(27) defeated Team Ramrod (19) and Dreamers (29) defeated Balls N All (21). It seems that Red Earthlings could not be defeated once in the 8 rounds defeating the Ball Busters (12) with an outstanding (24) in the last game. Bench Warmers were due to play Fuelies, but with the Fuelies not showing up they had no one to play. Serenity didn’t show up either leaving The Drips with no team to play until the Ball Busters nominated to play once again, however neither team took score.

Rec Club beat the undefeatable Wickham In what seemed a mismatch, the undefeated top placed Wickham took on bottom placed Rec Club in the West Pilbara Cricket Association.

Wickets fell steadily with Nicholas adding 6, McGlynn 7, Knowles 3, Lewis 2 and when McDonald was bowled for 27 Wickham had crashed to be all out for 94.

Some good bowling saw Richard Anderson removed for 10 and when Michael Cullen went for 0 and Russell Cowan for 3, Rec Club had stalled at 4 for 46.

Wickham won the toss and elected to bat on.

Greg Christie remained not out 5.

Wickham were in trouble early losing Polkinghorne 0, Edwards 6, Angel 19, Dundon 3 and Steel 0 to be 5 for 37.

Great bowling from the Rec club saw Russell Cowan take 4 for 17, Luke Breman 3 for 18, Ian Purcell 2 for 13 and Lachlan Napier 1 for 32.

A good partnership between Luke Breman 33 and Glen May 12 not out steadied the Rec Club run chase.

Tight bowling by the Rec Club kept the Wickham batsman under pressure.

Rec Clubs innings started positively before Peter Adams was dismissed for 5.

Bruce Schokker 6 came and went but Greg Dunphy joined May and saw the Rec Club home with 14 overs to spare.

Safer boating in the habour Skippers need to consider the following when traveling in areas of commercial vessel activity: • Give vessels such as rig tenders, barges, bulk carriers and gas ships a wide berth • Look out for the bow wave or wake that a commercial vessel can generate • Be aware when passing across the bow of a commercial vessel that they have restricted vision • Don’t anchor in shipping channels • Don’t tie up to channel markers and beacons The Port of Dampier is the second largest bulk export port in the world. Often more than 4000 commercial vessels visit each year. Consequently, recreational boat users can come into contact with commercial vessels. The safety of all on the water is of the utmost importance to Dampier Port Authority.

The Law It is an offence under section 59(2) of the Western Australian Marine Act 1982 to navigate or attempt to navigate a vessel while under the influence of alcohol or drugs to such an extent as to be incapable of having proper control of the vessel. In addition, drivers of vehicles leaving boat ramps, yacht clubs and marinas can be subject to breath testing under the Road Traffic Act 1974.

Effects of drinking alcohol whilst on the water Did you know that the combined effects of drinking alcohol out on the water, the weather, wind, motion and waves can dramatically increase the effect alcohol has on your balance, coordination, vision and judgement. In fact, if you’ve been drinking, your reaction time, coordination and balance can be worse on the water than on land. Drinking alcohol affects your ability to skipper a boat. The effects of drinking whilst boating can endanger the lives of the skipper and passengers. Passengers are just as likely as skippers to be involved in capsizing the vessel or falling overboard.

Risk taking Should you be involved in a boating accident as a result of drinking alcohol, then the chances of survival decrease through increased dehydration. Heat loss is also accelerated, especially if you are in the water.

Staying safe Alcohol is often a risk factor involved in drowning as it affects your performance and in some situations, not drinking is the safest option. However, if you are going to drink, do so responsibly, stick stick to the safer limits of drinking when out on the water.

Staying low risk The National Health and Medical Research Council recommend drinking no more than 4 standard drinks on a single occasion. This may reduce the risk of alcoholrelated injury arising from that occasion. These drinks should be evenly spaced at a rate of no more than 1 standard drink per hour.

• Levi Widnall leads the 65cc & 85cc race

Fun at the motorcycle club • Josh Hazel gets some help from Dave Morphett

By Peter Cooper

Tom Price was the place to be on Sunday 28th November, when the Tom Price Motorcycle Club held a motocross fun day for riders of any type of off road bike. Parents and kids alike were shown an event packed day, with riders coming from as far away as Karratha to have a go.

• Simon Eames passes on some riding tips to Jordan Callum

Along with some serious racing between senior classes to showcase the sport, newcomers were invited to try their hand at

various types of fun events to get them out on the track and have a go. Local racer Simon Eames co-ordinated all the fun events for the juniors which included a slow race, barrel races and a water race.

“From an idea that was thrown around at our AGM, it grew into a fantastic event with 31 juniors turning up and over twenty senior riders”, Dave Widnall, the clubs President said. “Our aim was to show parents who have a notion that motocross is a dangerous sport, that it is

a lot of fun for the kids and that safety is always our number one priority when it comes to racing. Our committee members, along with supporting business, all pulled together to ensure everyone had a great time” he added.

An added bonus was a visit from Australian current number one quad racer, Ryan Lancaster who answered questions from the kids about what it takes to be a champion racer in the sport. TP Motorcycle club would like to thank their

generous sponsors for their contributions. These include Coates Hire, Shell, Bucyrus, Trucut Lawns, Rio Tinto, Tom Price Clean Machines, Parts Monster, Northwest Honda, Bunbury KTM, Dingo De Construction, TP Kanga Hire, Acecream, Pilbara Foods, Moto Extreme Clothing, MX Weekly, Perth MX, Shire of Ashburton, Jamie Johnson Photography and especially the local St John Ambos and High School Cadets who volunteered their own time to make the event possible.
