FOR many Australians, the festive season is one of joy and connection, where friendships and family are celebrated, food is shared and holiday plans are made.
THE announcement from the Sports Minister (SMH Nov 24) regarding what they intend to do with the Olympic Stadium, has shocked me.
SO, the City of Canterbury-Bankstown, the largest council in NSW, with over 362,000 residents, plans to mark the nation's most important day next year with a couple of glorified pool parties and a free sausage.
CRICKET Australia joined the world in celebrating International Volunteer Day.
LABOR candidate for East Hills, Cameron Murphy, is spot on (Road choked to death, Torch, November 29); the Liberal State Government's appalling decision to rezone Milperra Riverlands Golf Course to allow over 1,000 new houses, many of them duplexes, without any infrastructure upgrades, will make the traffic situation on Henry Lawson Drive much, much worse.

I'D like to thank everyone who supported the Leukaemia Foundation's recent Light the Night fundraising walk by the Georges River.
SO I see controversial State MP for East Hills, Glenn Brookes, at it again.
