[...] Dianetics does, indeed, work: There must be some reason that Dianetics was on the New York Times bestseller list twice. Get a copy, sit down in a comfortable chair some evening and find out for yourself. Missing from all the criticism is any indication that Dianetics doesn't work. It, in fact, does work, as millions of people around the world have discovered for themselves. Yes, I'm a Scientologist and have been, going on 40 years. Those many years ago, I ...

A group affiliated with the Church of Scientology has forged close ties with several influential members of the Arizona Legislature as part of a nationwide battle against the mental-health industry. The Citizens Commission on Human Rights has courted key lawmakers with trips to glitzy Scientologist events in Hollywood. And, observers say, it has been the force behind more than two dozen bills in Arizona in recent years, including measures to restrict prescriptions of Ritalin and mood-altering drugs. One of the measures ...

Police Chief Sid Klein is warning a prominent Church of Scientology official not to interfere in a police investigation again. Richard Haworth, Scientology's spokesman in Clearwater, could have been booked into the county jail March 24 for obstructing an investigation into an alleged battery of a Scientologist that night, Klein said Thursday in a letter. Haworth was not charged only because of the "training, patience and professionalism" of a police officer involved in the incident, Klein said. According to a police ...

They never broke into church buildings or planted electronic bugs, but for the past 13 years, undercover Clearwater police detectives have investigated the Church of Scientology. They never developed a case against the church that was prosecuted. The work ranged from gathering Scientologists' names to seeking refunds for dissatisfied parishioners. Police once stormed Scientology headquarters after hearing anonymous allegations - unfounded, it turned out - that Scientology children were being strapped to gurneys and given electric shocks. The investigation boils down ...

Editor: In order to build a better future it often is necessary to let go of the past. I am referring to the Nov. 17 letter on Scientology by Gabe Cazares, which sounded much like a record stuck in the nine groove for far too long. Mr. Cazares may disagree with the IRS' exemption riling on the Church of Scientology, however, that decision followed the most thorough and demanding investigation ever conducted of any exempt organization. The result: The IRS granted ...

The church has 750 or so staff members based in Clearwater, and hundreds more come from around the world to take part in Scientology religious services.

But the city of Clearwater has put the church on notice that it might not be able to grow too fast. The six-story office tower and auditorium Scientologists plan to build across the street from their Fort Harrison Hotel may be so big that it qualifies as a "Development of Regional Impact" under the ...

The commissioners reached their decision at a closed-door meeting Tuesday, Alan Zimmet, a lawyer who attended the meeting, said Wednesday. ...

"They [city commissioners] are resolved to pursue forward and fight," said attorney Alan Zimmet, who is handling the appeal. But further appeals of the ordinance, which would require churches to disclose how they spend money donated by church members, would be foolish, said Richard Haworth, spokesman for the Church of Scientology. ...

In the past week, the Internal Revenue Service issued 30 "determination letters" that exempted 153 Scientology churches, ...
