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 — A group of former Scientologists wants to speak to city commissioners about what they say is the "hypnotic and satanic content" of Scientology. 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 ...

TAMPA — A newspaper waited too long before asking a judge to open court files that were sealed more than two years ago, attorneys for the Church of Scientology argued Wednesday. "It's unprecedented, this kind of wait," said new York lawyer Michael Lee Hertzberg. He was referring to the 26 months that went by after U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Kovachevich sealed four lawsuits that were settled with the church in 1986. But at a hearing before federal magistrate Paul Game ...

Seattle lawyer Walter D. Palmer says it was strictly "a business decision." But a result of an investment he made with business associate John G. Ritchie could result in a forced sale of Church of Scientology buildings in downtown Clearwater. And holding the auction for the men would be the Pinellas County government. Scientology lawyer Paul B. Johnson said he will seek an injunction to stop the sale. The proposed auction, which Palmer suggested two weeks ago, relates to Scientology's annual ...

A Pinellas judge presiding over a Scientology tax dispute has removed himself from the case because of a newspaper report that cited a real estate transaction between the judge and the Church of Scientology.

Rives, who was presiding over a lawsuit concerning taxes on Scientology properties, sold one of those properties to the church in 1979. Rives said in December that there was no conflict in his role because ...

After years of sparring with the townsfolk and veiling itself in secrecy, the Church of Scientology has succeeded in turning Clearwater into its spiritual mecca. Scientologists quietly run teen nightclubs, schools, day-care centers, management consulting firms and other businesses, records and interviews show. Now the strategy of the organization, longtime observers say, is to confront controversy, gain converts and make money - lots of it. Scientology's Clearwater operation brings in $1.5-million to $2-million a week, say church watchers who include Clearwater ...

Operating under auspices of the Church of Scientology are dozens of groups, many of them separate legal entities. Untangling Scientology's lines of organizations can be difficult; even the sect's own charts that have been used in court cases are complex. Here are some of Scientology's organizations. Flag Service Organization — The legal name of Scientology's Clearwater operation, which serves as the sect's spiritual headquarters. Before 1981 the organization was part of the Church of Scientology of California, and Pinellas County officials ...

The year was 1976, one year after the Church of Scientology had secretly moved its spiritual headquarters to Clearwater, and Mayor Gabe Cazares was complaining too loudly for the church's comfort. So, as documents seized by the FBI would later show, the church's Clearwater office devised a scheme to "ruin Mayor Gabriel Cazares' political career by spreading scandal about his sex life." Church officials came up with ways to get Cazares' school records, birth records, anything — from checking with the ...
