PART TEN Former Scientologist Maureen Bolstad continues her account of her years at the church headquarters near Hemet. "I was actually one of the older ones at 17. There were 13-year-olds, 12-year-olds," Bolstad recollects. "There was just one kid, 12-years-old that was given an executive responsibility doing something. He had a complete nervous breakdown." This is how Maureen spent her teenage years: making videos for the church. Looking at her social security tax forms, she says nobody ever told her about ...

Two former employees who worked more than a decade at the Church of Scientology's Golden Era Productions enclave near Hemet have filed lawsuits alleging the church violated federal and state labor laws and engaged in human trafficking. Church of Scientology spokesman Tommy Davis called the lawsuits "utterly meritless," noting that hundreds of staff would boast about working conditions at the nearly 700-acre compound in Gilman Hot Springs. "Working conditions at Gold Base are nothing short of spectacular," Davis said. In separate ...

Beck's show tonight will benefit Scientology-affiliated charity — Los Angeles Times (California)

There's been a touch of Internet controversy today about Beck's somewhat-impromptu show at the Echo tonight, first started by blogger Sketchytown, then picked up by the LA Weekly's West Coast Sound blog. Both blogs raised a flag about a charity cited on the show's promotional material, Educating Children International, which, according to the promo poster, will get the "net proceeds" of the show priced at a cool $35. Nothing was mentioned about any connections with Scientology, and the website for the ...

Legal battle between Wachovia and a hedge fund shows the interconnected world of a Wall Street fiasco — Charlotte Business Journal

Author(s): Sarah Okeson
Source: Charlotte Business Journal
It was a tiny deal in Wall Street terms. In May 2007, Wachovia Bank agreed to make what was essentially a $10 million bet with a small offshore hedge fund. No big deal; certainly no big impact on Wachovia at the time. But now, credit markets have nearly frozen. Taxpayers are shelling out $700 billion — with much more expected — to shore up a tottering financial system. Many banks, including Wachovia, have all but failed and disappeared. Venerable Wall Street ...

A place as far removed from Tom Cruise, John Travolta and Scientology’s loopiness as one can possibly get. Armstrong and his third wife Caroline live in a walk-up, one-bedroom apartment ...
