Deleted. I rushed to post, and did not do it right.
On reading through the comments by the Bunkeroos, I noticed that someone pointed out how the cult got scammed by the previous owners of Trout Run who were trying to sell the place and were, shall we say, "Careless with the truth" about the "historical" side of the property.
That's pretty much what happened at Yarramalong,
Say, didn't the cult invest heavily with the Feshback-brothers and lose an awful lot of money because they failed to realize they weren't the only ones who were willing to play hard in big league finance? Is it the same thing that's happening here?

Kneeland ( Social Betterment Attorney ) said the council’s final vote was an attempt to appease the “whims and fears” of the community. She read statements — from letters sent to the council and the public hearings — about the Church of Scientology and Narconon that she felt were derogatory.
“Those reasons to motivate a decision are improper. An agency is not allowed to discriminate on the basis of religion,” she told Nicklas.
Kearney (County Attorney ) said it should be expected that those testifying at a council meeting without an attorney may introduce irrelevant ideas in their testimony, just as happens in court, she said. That doesn’t discredit the council’s analysis of the property’s historic significance, she said.
Kearney said Social Betterment put its own plans at risk when the organization bought property not already zoned to allow a Narconon center to open.
“They took on a project that didn’t have a good prognosis,” she said at Monday’s hearing.[..]
Apparently it ain't over until the large weight-challenged person vocalizes ... Is Scientology practicing overwhelm by legal or expecting to change the outcome of the county decision?
