Expert to talk on critical matters

Expert to talk on critical matters

Often the most difficult questions in life are those relating to death. Which is why the Voluntary Euthanasia Society of NSW has invited Professor Colleen Cartwright to their next meeting on Thursday, July 27, at the Goonellabah Sports Club.

Professor Cartwright will tackle a variety of very trick questions, such as Do you we want to the medical system to apply invasive procedures such as life support when it is likely that we will remain in a coma or have a severely reduced quality of life?

An expert on aged services, Professor Cartwright will be discussing how people can ensure that their wishes in regard to medical treatment are known and observed in critical medical situations.

The meeting begins at 2pm next Thursday. For information phone Bryan Milner on 6680 1961.

Feedback sought on road re-naming

Residents of Ballina Street, Ballina Road and New Ballina Road should have received a pack in the mail this week asking for feedback on Lismore City Councils proposed road re-naming of those areas.

The idea behind the re-naming is to erase confusion often experienced due to the similar names and streets numbers. It is proposed that the road within the urban area of Lismore be known as Ballina Road and once it leaves the urban area, at the junction of Pineapple Road, it reverts to the Bruxner Highway.

Resident have until August 18 to provide feedback.
