Comment on At last, public will get a say on Anzac Oval: Town Council by Evelyne Roullet.

@ Jimmy: “The risk to council is that the community-owned asset may be compulsorily acquired.” Compulsory? No, Jimmy acquisition, or “resumption” is when an authority like the Government acquires privately owned land or property.
Most commonly it is done in order to build infrastructure like roads or public transport, but other reasons property could be acquired include public safety – in cases of contamination for instance.
That compulsory acquisition is usually done to make what people hope are big improvements to their communities. Certainly not the case of our oval.
It belongs to the ratepayers, not the council which comes and goes.
Therefore an objection should be recorded by the ratepayers if after a real fair survey the majority opposes the acquisition.
An objection is to contain particulars of the effect that the acquisition would have on the interest that the person (ratepayers) objecting has or claims to have in the land.
The Minister may, at any time before the date of acquisition, modify or abandon a proposal.
The Minister must cause notice of any modification or abandonment of a proposal to be lodged with each affected person; and consultation is to take place over a period of three months if the proposal relates to less than five hectares of land.
I believe that the process will take so long that Gunner will be gone. Maybe it is time to start a Ratepayers’s Association.

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.
