Comment on Price wants council to do better than basics by Evelyne Roullet.

@ Fred the Philistine: Have you put your hand up for Saturday elections? It does not mean that you have to love the seven candidates, but we should show respect to them for offering to work for the town.
As for the rates in Alice Springs, they are not much different than in other parts of Australia. I am certain that the council aims to keep the increase in rates to a minimum in order to lessen any impact on ratepayers, but at the same time generate enough income to provide adequate levels of service that the people of the town expect.

Quote: “Jacinta, regarding your successful business, what assistance have you received on the basis of being Indigenous.”
All those born in Australia are “indigenous Australians”.
Oxford Dictionary: Originating or occurring naturally in a particular place; native.
Origin of the word: Mid 17th century from Latin indigena “a native”.

@ Fred the Philistine: If, if, if. If my auntie had balls, I would call her uncle.
Right now, what stands between you and great visions is your philosophy of life, your attitude and your inability to take action.

@ Steve: Could we ask the candidates to tell us if they intend to put their candidature for the next Northern Territory general election scheduled for 27 August 2016?

Cr Auricht: All the way with USA on fate of Assange
@ Charlie (sorry mate old age): I am simply asking if the people of Alice should make a petition for Assange? If yes, then the petition should be presented to the council which in turn will present it to the Feds.

The situation of Assange is terrible, but like John Bell I fail to understand what the council can do about it when there is nothing it can do about the crimes in our town.
Australian politicians are in a position to advocate for Julian Assange and have, thus far, failed to do so. How could our Councillors succeed?
The role of each councillor is to:
• Represent the interests of electors, ratepayers and residents.
• Provide leadership and guidance to the community.
• Facilitate two-way communication between the community and the council; and
• Participate in decision making processes at meetings.
Nothing here indicates it can get involved with Federal decisions.

@ Mecchi: You know it takes two to tango, so unless you speak to the daughter to have her side of the story, you have not the full picture.

Doomsday Clock now 100 seconds to midnight
John Bell, a little correction: “Hebrew Bible” or “Tanakh.” NO ONE KNOWS THE DAY OR THE HOUR.
At the Time of the End, the wise shall understand. Dan 12:10
Jesus the Messiah was Jewish and lived a Torah-observant Jewish life. Evidence suggests that He communicated to His audience in the Hebrew language, in Hebraic ways. It means to think and talk like a Jew. It means to speak in the language and idioms of the day. Christians over the centuries have separated themselves from their Hebraic roots causing the misunderstanding of key Jewish biblical idioms.
“It is generally agreed by historians that Jesus and his disciples primarily spoke Aramaic (Jewish Palestinian Aramaic), the common language of Judea in the first century AD, most likely a Galilean dialect distinguishable from that of Jerusalem.”
The books of Daniel and Ezra were in Aramaic. Too often translation does not give true meaning and changes accordingly with the “will of the churches Millennium = the Feast of the Tabernacles or Sukkot.
It will begin in the evening of Friday, October 2 and ends in the evening of Friday, October 9.
