Now, this is confusing: one bridge, two names (Goulburn's Lansdowne Bridge also honours Harold Freeman, Goulburn Post, August 21).
It will be interesting to see how car navigation systems handle it. "Turn right at Lansdowne Bridge, or, if you prefer..."
I would suggest, to make it simpler for everybody, we replace the original name "Lansdowne" that is already commemorated in our city as a street name with the one name - "Harold E. (Boodge) Freeman Bridge".
After all, we managed the change from Ayers Rock to Uluru without too much difficulty.
Surely this can't be too hard.

Being attacked because it has been effective
As someone who volunteered with Get Up before the last election, I find Scott Morrison's latest outburst astounding.
The people I met were retired public servants, retired teachers and one bloke who was ex-Air Force.
No rabble rousers at all. Very staid and quiet.
What united us was a concern for the direction in which our country is heading.
We are concerned for our children and grandchildren with regard to global warming.
We want a country where racial vilification is just so out of line, no one does it.
Where refugees aren't locked up in concentration camps and used as political puppets.
Where public education is properly funded; where whistleblowers are admired rather than arrested.
And where the government governs for all Australians.
And Get Up is not affliliated with any political party. Never has been. The AEC said so a few months ago. It is a grass roots movement.
The reason that it is being attacked, of course, is because it has been effective.

Goulburn's once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
For years Goulburn has been without a performing arts venue, thanks to many poor decisions by the council that are too long to list here.
Now, they have some chance to redeem themselves by managing the building of a fully fledged structure that serves for multi uses.
The Performing Arts Cente (PAC) is Goulburn's once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get it right. So let's get it done right.

Considerable economic and social benefit
Articles in the Victorian newspapers have announced that Bridget McKenzie, federal deputy of the National Party and Minister for Agriculture, and as the Nationals' number one Senate candidate in Victoria - and holder of a double degree in applied science and mathematics - extensively, vocally and with funding assistance, supports the establishment of rail trails on dormant rail easements in that state.
This has already resulted in considerable economic and social benefit.
"Senator McKenzie confirmed that her decision to fund the Wimmera River Discovery Trail was that it produced more jobs than any other application" reports the Bendigo Advertiser.
Furthermore, the new fencing and tailored stock crossings for effected properties improves bio-security outcomes.
The new fencing along the easement means wandering stock cannot cross-contaminate properties along disused and derelict routes.
