OUTRAGE AT MASSACRE OF TREES
Anyone driving down the Sturt Highway from the Hume to Wagga Wagga would have seen the devastation of masses of lovely trees - 100 or more - which grew gently along the road, presenting no immediate danger to traffic.
Apparently, their removal was to "improve visibility".
However, the majority of the trees were felled where the road runs dead straight, one would presume they presented no issue.
How this massacre was allowed to happen and who sanctioned it are questions which remain unanswered.
These trees have met their death and a great many of them would have been well over 100 years old.
What a tragedy.
Sadly, there is obviously no place in this area for history or heritage as far as the landscape is concerned.
It makes no sense at all, that this extraordinary decision was made to remove the trees, obviously without any thought or sense of pride in our beautiful countryside.

FATHER'S DAY STORY HITS HOME
Michael Ray's article made me laugh and brought tears to my eyes ("The only father in the room", The Weekend Advertiser, September 4).
Packing everything but "the kitchen sink" for the trip to the playground as new parents do.
READ MORE LETTERS:
Standing up for his right to be backstage at his daughter's ballet concert.
I love the photo of him painting Charlie's toenails.
Many parents of both genders could learn an enormous amount from him.
He took the opportunities as they appeared to be present with his daughter.

PICS PROVIDE GREAT PROMOTION
All praise to The Daily Advertiser for its photos on Tuesday, August 31 promoting Legacy Week and especially to Emma Hillier for her photos of Jenny Lovekin.
Only those involved in Legacy know of Jenny's wide ranging grasp of our activities and to have her, looking at her best, hugging those bears as if they were Legacy, in front of our beautiful legacy house, was a wonderful way of promoting Legacy Week.
Emma, one of the best promos we've had over the years.
Congratulations to you and The DA.
Gerry Shilling, Wagga
GUARDRAILS POSE A CONCERN
After the extension installation of guardrails at the Kapooka Road exit from the Sturt Highway, it has become a high risk to exit at this point, as the two-lane highway is one lane for passing, one lane to continue on the left.
If you have two large trucks travelling at 100 to 110km/h from behind you have to continue to Cummins Drive to avoid a collision from behind, as you have no escape route because of the extension of this guardrail.
Cummins Drive has an exit lane provided, 1km from Kapooka exit.
