The Church of Scientology should hand over stacks of financial documents to the Internal Revenue Service, which is studying whether to deny the organization tax-exempt status, a federal magistrate says. But Magistrate Elizabeth Jenkins has pared the number of documents the IRS originally sought. Jenkins' recommendations, issued last week in U.S. District Court, will be forwarded to a federal judge who can adopt or revise them. The IRS says it has information indicating the Clearwater-based Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization ...

Three men accused of money laundering in a Clearwater rare-coin dealership claim they were unfairly singled out for prosecution because they are Scientologists. They claim the internal Revenue had no evidence of criminal activity when it began an investigation of the coin dealership, Bernstein, McCaffrey & Lee. Instead, the three accused men charge that they were "targeted for investigation and prosecution solely because they are Scientologists," and say the case against them should be dismissed. They claim another example of this ...

The IRS, which earlier took on the Scientologists in Washington and Los Angeles, now has brought its court battle to federal court in Tampa. Its target is Scientology's worldwide spiritual headquarters in Clearwater. Scientologists vehemently disagree, calling the IRS corrupt and accusing it of pursuing a vendetta against Scientology. ``We feel the federal government should investigate illegal drug running in Florida and should investigate money laundering in Florida banks,`` said spokesman Humberto Fontana. Scientologists also are in court with Pinellas County ...

TAMPA — In a forceful pronouncement of press and public rights, a federal magistrate has recommended that four sealed Church of Scientology case files be opened. Scientology lawyer Paul Johnson said the church "respectfully disagrees" with U.S. Magistrate Paul Game Jr.'s report, and will ask a federal judge to review the magistrate's findings. Until a federal judge rules, the files will be sealed, Johnson said. Game's ruling was released Aug. 15 and received by the St Petersburg Times on Tuesday. U.S. ...

CLEARWATER — Complaints about the Church at Scientology unexpectedly surfaced again before the City Commission on Thursday, and some commissioners think they've heard enough. The commissioners two weeks ago presided over a stormy session in which a group of people spoke against the Scientologists, claiming the organisation is a cult. Scientologists denied those claims, and said they were offended by what they called attacks on their religion. On Thursday, commissioners heard a dialogue that was shorter, but similar. A Tampa couple, ...

Editor: I was in Scientology for 12 years. Now I face being jailed because I am talking to the public about the real story of Scientology — that it involves hypnosis, brainwashing, and satanism. All because I am trying to prevent what happened to me from happening to other people. It may seem by my violations of the court order not to speak publicly about Scientology that I have no respect for the law. Such is not the case. In fact ...

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — The City Commission here has approved a site plan for a three-story addition on Clearwater Harbor property owned by the Church of Scientology, now the city's fourth largest property owner. The preliminary document was sent to city planners late Thursday after a testy public hearing involving proponents and opponents. Scientologists moved their religious headquarters to Clearwater in 1975 when they bought the old For Harrison Hotel. The group has since bought 11 other Clearwater properties, bringing total ...

CLEARWATER — City commissioners presided over a debate Thursday on a thorny topic that had not raged in City Hall for years — whether the Church of Scientology helps or hurts Clearwater. And in a side issue, a Scientology official said the organization would rather renovate its existing buildings in downtown Clearwater and possibly consolidate them, rather than buy more local land. The organization owns 12 parcels, mostly in downtown Clearwater, worth more than $21-million. A Scientology planning official said the ...

Former member Margery Wakefield wrote a letter to Mayor Rita Garvey saying she and a small group of former Scientologists would like to demonstrate various practices the organisation uses among followers. Ms. Wakefield said she was prompted to make the suggestion because city commissioners next week are expected to consider a site plan for a $3.5-million ...

CLEARWATER — A judge has decided to stop the auction of Church of Scientology property until a court can decide whether the church has to pay the taxes. The church and the Pinellas County property appraiser have disagreed for years about whether the church, which has its spiritual headquarters in Clearwater, must pay taxes on the property it owns in the county. The property appraiser's office has sent the church tax bills every year and the church has refused to pay ...

Most local residents now realize that all those people in white uniforms scurrying along Clearwater's downtown streets are Scientologists, although some tourists still ask whether we have a U.S. Navy base in town. But even locals were mystified by the new outfit — black shorts with black T-shirt or tank top. So I called Bill Daugherty, a Scientology spokesman here, who said those black-attired people are part of the "estate crew." They do gardening chores and cleanup work at Scientology's many ...

ST. PETERBURG, FLA, - It was like something out of a science fiction script - but L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, claimed it was fact. "Xenu," he called the central character. Xenu ruled the 90-planet Galactic Confederation 75-million years ago, when overpopulation was a problem. So Xenu solved the problem: He trapped selected beings and flew them to volcanoes on Earth, then called Teegeeach. He then dropped powerful H-bombs on the volcanoes. The beings were destroyed in a wall ...

Margery Wakefield got $200,000 for settling a lawsuit against the Church of Scientology in 1986. In return, Scientology thought it had bought Ms. Wakefield's perpetual silence. She wasn't supposed to disclose the $200,000 figure. She wasn't supposed to talk about Scientology's lop-secret training techniques. And she wasn't supposed to make claims about alleged hypnosis and Satanism in the church. But Ms. Wakefield's been talking, going on Tampa Bay radio twice recently to discuss just these things. In so doing, she's testing ...
