Skinheads, skateboards, Scientology prompt calls // Do you avoid downtown? — St. Petersburg Times (Florida)

Author(s): Bob Henderson

Another caller wanted to talk about our Sunday story regarding merchants in downtown Clearwater and how they appreciate the business of their Scientology customers. How many local residents, the caller wondered, stay away from the downtown area only because they don't want to be seen with Scientologists and be considered one of them, or at least because they would feel uncomfortable with the many Scientologists scurrying back and forth on downtown sidewalks? The caller believes there are many such people, and ...

CLEARWATER — A Clearwater man died Friday morning after his small car slammed into the side of a flatbed truck owned by the Pinellas County Department of General Services. The accident occurred just before 9 a.m, at one of Clearwater's busiest intersections — Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard and Belcher Road.

Rip-roaring boost for paper shredders — St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
Type: Press
Author(s): Karl Vick

Secretive as ever, the National Security Council (NSC) will not reveal precisely what kind of shredder Lt. Col. Oliver L. North worked into a state of exhaustion that November evening in 1986, the night he handed Fawn Hall compromising documents at such a rate that the shredding machine jammed. It was a Datatech product, an NSC spokeswoman said. It also said Intimus on it, she added, unhelpfully, since all Datatech shredders say Intimus on them. Once again, and perhaps as never ...

ST. PETERSBURG — City officials hope to be signing a contract soon with a company that would bring a new cruise ship to the Port of St. Petersburg.

St. Petersburg has been without a cruise ship in its port since ...

Religion and taxes Series: Editorials — St. Petersburg Times (Florida)
Type: Press

Is the Internal Revenue Service out of order in trying to revoke the tax-exempt status of Jim Bakker's PTL ministries for three years? Is this IRS effort part of a campaign that picks on religious operations? Or is it a federal government agency doing its job, objectively challenging the outrageous spending practices of an organization set up for religious and charitable purposes? Anytime the IRS moves, the danger of abuse exists. Short of death or some uncertain judgment day, the IRS ...

The cruise ship Boheme has received an engine overhaul since being purchased by a group of Scientologists, and the vessel soon will get a stem-to-stern refurbishing at a cost of more than $1-million. But it still has no home port. The 500-passenger ship sailed out of the Port of St. Petersburg for 19 months while it was owned by Commodore Cruise Lines. But the vessel was purchased this past September by the International Association of Scientologists for use as a sailing ...

A week from today, passengers will board the cruise ship Boheme for what apparently will be its last Caribbean voyage out of St. Petersburg. Travelers who had planned dream cruises are getting called about a change in those plans. Travel agents are making the unpleasant phone calls. St. Petersburg officials who helped bring the Boheme to port 20 months ago are keeping stiff upper lips and looking for another ship.

The cassette comes with a letter from church spokesman Ludwig Alpers. The tape, he wrote, "is a gift to you so that you can judge for yourself what Scientology really is."

A man who told police he was detained at the Church of Scientology headquarters in Clearwater and later recanted that account will not be charged with filing a false police report. The Pinellas-Pasco state attorney's office declined to charge Daniel Cotrino, 30, of Brooklyn, N.Y., after reviewing a taped statement Cotrino made to police. Clearwater police had taken Cotrino to police headquarters for questioning March 5 after a police sergeant reported that he saw him being held by two Scientologists outside ...
