Thanks to university for helicopters help
Alan and Gail Nagel, Leonay THE news that a temporary helicopter landing site has been identified on the Western Sydney University campus and that construction of a permanent site will begin soon as part of the major hospital upgrade, is welcome news as it means that patients and their families will not necessarily need to go out of the Penrith area for treatment at other hospitals (“Deal for ambo site” Penrith Press, March 30). Thank you to the University for agreeing to this solution. from trains you can look out and see his memorial, and it behoves us to consider in remembrance his words.
My great great grandfather, Matthew Merrell, was one of the Tenterfield aldermen who welcomed Henry Parkes, Colony Premier that evening when he gave his noted Federation speech, on October 25, 1889, at a banquet for the Premier.
Sir Henry Parkes, known as “the Father of Australia’s Federation”, believed that Christianity comprised an essential part of Australia’s common law.
In a column published in August 26, 1885, Sir Henry stated: “We are pre-eminently a Christian people – as our laws, our whole system of jurisprudence, our Constitution, are based upon and interwoven with our Christian belief.”
I merely suggest those who come to Australia might benefit from that statement of Sir Henry Parkes, and I contend that a thing like same sex marriage has no place in this nation.
