Voyager - Wikipedia Artists Impression

Our village celebrates 50 years of community support on this day this year. But did you know that this same day is also the 40th anniversary of the launch of the Voyager 2 spacecraft?

Scientists realised in the 1960s that the outer planets would be perfectly aligned in the late 70s for a single probe to to visit them all. Two satelites were built, but Voyager 2 was the first to be launched - on August 20th 1977.

We understand that there is to be a second directions hearing in the Land and Environment Court on September 1st. This is platform provided for the two parties, the owner of the land and the MidCoast Council, to convince the court that they have reconciled differences and agreed to a path toward future co-operation so that further legal process is not necessary.

As you will know, on the insistance of the court, the owner, Mr Lee, appointed a 'go-between' to take a negotiation role in this process. He has been familiarising himself with the history non-compliances and regulatory abuses...

Although i am now an ex-resident, I still take a keen interest in the happenings at NAC. As a boat ramp has been a No.1 priority for residents since Adam was a pup, maybe the time has come to take matters into your own hands.
