The Northam Advertiser[edit]

I just created a stub for The Northam Advertiser newspaper since I was citing some articles from it. I struggled a bit to find out much about it, so thought I might mention it here in case anyone here has some better info. I did not add it to the List of newspapers in Australia or List of newspapers published in Western Australia as I was not sure how to position it in either structure. I think it is a defunct regional newspaper and I have no idea if it's a major/minor title. Thanks in advance for anything you can do to improve it. Kerry (talk) 02:36, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

Geraldton vandalism[edit]

There has been a fair bit of adding non-notable residents to the notable resident section of Geraldton. The edits have been reverted each time but the IP has now taken to personal attacks. It might pay for other WA editors to keep a bit of an eye on the page. Regards, Calistemon (talk) 02:02, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

Supreme Court has rejected Corina Abraham's Roe 8 challenge[edit]

The Supreme Court has rejected Corina Abraham's challenge to the Aboriginal heritage approval given for Roe 8. Those who understand the legal issue here better than I may care to update the relevant article(s). Mitch Ames (talk) 11:37, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

The news article has absolutely no mention of the judge's reasoning. The published decision is here; the table of contents starts on page 5. To sum it up very briefly, the Judge found that Main Roads consulted with Cockburn Aboriginal Advisory Committee (CAAC) through its Chairman, Rev Sealin Garlett, and there was no requirement for them to consult with Abraham personally, either in her role as a custodian for her people, a co-chair of the CAAC, or as an individual with a personal connection to the land. The basis for this is mainly covered in pages 25-33. I'll copy this over to the article's talk page. AtHomeIn神戸 (talk) 00:12, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
