Alt.religion.scientology Week in Review summarizes the most significant postings from the Usenet group Alt.religion.scientology for the preceding week for the benefit of those who can't follow the group as closely as they'd like. Out of thousands of postings, I attempt to include news of significant events, new affidavits, court rulings, new contributors, whatever. I hope you find it useful. Like many readers of a.r.s, I have a kill file. So please take into consideration that I may not have seen some of the most significant postings.

The articles in A.r.s Week in Review are brief summaries of the articles. Many include an excerpt, and all include message IDs for the articles I cover. This may or may not be useful to you, depending on how long your site stores articles in the newsgroup before expiring them.

A.r.s Week in Review is available free, by e-mail and is archived at http://amazing.cinenet.net/scientology.html

Jeff Jacobson [sic]

Chris Miller this week accused Jeff Jacobsen of making false statements to the police, and of being the poster known as abcdefg. This follows last week's statements by abcdefg that s/he would be investigating the removal of Eugene Ingram, cos muscle, from the national criminal database, the NCIC.

"I've got news for you Jeff Jacobson (abcdef [sic]), it is illegal to make false statements to federal or state law enforcement officers. It is also illegal for YOU to access NCIC. Just to let you know. You will be hearing more about this in person later."


Allstate Follow-up

The Wall Street Journal reported this week that John Softye, one of the sources quoted in the WSJ article on cos management techniques being used at Allstate Corporation.

"Allstate Corp. issued a 'job in jeopardy' notice to John Softye, a New York agent who complained in an article in The Wall Street Journal and other newspapers about a consultant teaching Scientology management practices. 'The articles in which your statements appeared had a potentially damaging impact on Allstate's reputation,' said the notice. It warned he'd be fired if he spoke to the press again without approval."

Would Allstate take this action if they still think the methods "work"?


UnBirthday Game

Rogue Agent announced this week that he will attempt to calculate the size of the cos, using the statistics provided in the Birthday Game Newsletters produced by each org. A.r.s readers can forward key stats to rogue@ccs.neu.edu.

"We have readers and posters from literally all across the globe. If we can get ahold of a significant number of Birthday Game newsletters, and combine the data from them, we can build a pretty good picture of the current state of the CoS.

"All you, the reader, need to do is locate your local Org (if you've been following a.r.s for any length of time you probably know where it is already), walk in (assuming you're not a known-on-sight SP) and ask them for a copy. You may meet with some resistance, but don't let that bother you. You're on a Mission."


Andy Milne

Evidence was posted by Ron Newman this week concerning Andy Milne and his official position in the cos. Consider his claim that he is posting without the knowledge of the cos in the light of this excerpt.

"On 14 November 1987, _The Spectator_ published an article called "The Secret Scientologist", by Roy Kerridge.

"Mr. Kerridge visited Saint Hill Manor in response to an invitation that read:

"'Mr. Andrew Milne would like the pleasure of the company of Charles Moore for a visit to Saint Hill Manor, home of author and philosopher L. Ron Hubbard.'

"Mr. Kerridge describes Andrew Milne as follows: 'a slim young Scottish executive with a grey suit and sandy eyebrows' and said that, at one point, Mr. Milne 'dashed into a door marked Office of Special Affairs, his workplace'


Chilocco Indians Sick of Narconon

The Associated Press reported this week that the Chilocco Development Authority has turned over the former Indian school to the Bureau of Indian Affairs rather than continue to deal with Narconon, the cos detoxification program.

"But Wanda Stone, chairwoman of the Kaw Tribe, said her tribal council approved the move because it was tired of dealing with Narconon Chilocco New Life Center, a substance abuse treatment facility that has a 25-year lease on the site.

"'We decided we didn't have time to mess with them,' Ms. Stone said.

"The tribes had expected to receive a total of $16 million over 25 years when they signed the lease with Narconon five years ago. But Stone said the facility has only about 75 of the expected 1,000 beds.

"'We would get checks maybe every quarter for $2,500,' she said. 'We decided we had more important things to do.'"


KSW News

Ron Newman this week posted excerpts from KSW News #46 and #47 concerning Enid Vien, formerly a frequent contributor to a.r.s. I was surprised at how the language used is very different from that in Freedom Magazine.

Concerning Enid's unwilling capitulation message, which she posted to a.r.s several months ago, KSW opined:

"It seems even squirrels can experience ethics change when justice persists. But the best news of all is that federal case is now over and the judge's precedent-setting decision regarding the confidentiality of the advanced materials _and_ the injunction against this squirrel are both _permanent_."

And the story of the person who reported Enid to the RTC:

"This person unknowingly encountered a squirrel masquerading as someone who delivered Dianetics and Scientology services. Even though she was not a Scientologist(TM) at the time, the woman astutely observed that the technology wasn't working in the hands of this squirrel. Wisely, she reported these suppressive activities to the Church and RTC, and provided invaluable evidence for a federal lawsuit against the squirrel. The case culminated with the Federal Court judge barring the squirrel from any further illegal or unauthorized use of the materials. Moreover, he issued a ruling that the Advanced Technology is legally kept confidential by the Church, and it is unlawful for anyone else to use it without RTC's permission.

"While that in itself was a major victory for Scientology, there is more. The individual who initially reported the matter to RTC was recently rewarded for her efforts in alignment with HCO PL 1 September 1969R, Counterespionage."


Eugene Ingram Update

Grady Ward reported this week:

"A criminal case number has been filed against Eugene Martin Ingram in Tacoma, WA by Officer R. Zurtschel (TPD badge #268) for the gross misdemeanor charge of criminal impersonation. Refer to Case # 95-1530374 (Tacoma Police Department)"

Keith Henson reported progress in his investigation of the removal of Eugene from the NCIC.

"Jay Pruner, Assistant State Attorney in Florida, called me this morning. I filled him in on the particulars involved re Ingram, detective Yates, NCIC, Mr. Bard, the Tacoma warrant, etc. I will be faxing such items as the warrant for Ingram's arrest in Tacoma to him this evening.


Tom Klemesrud Update

Many Additional details of the incident with Tom Klemesrud and Linda Lee Woolard emerged this week. Chris Miller reported that Eugene Ingram has investigated the incident. Chris obtained the police report, and claims the call came in as "suspect has a shotgun". Tom reports his copy of the report says "...when we rec'd a radio call "Man/Woman dispute".

Tom also reports:

"According to LAPD Records division, the only legal way for you to have obtained what you have is if Linda Lee Woolard, (F WHT DOB 8-12-45) got the 'Crime Report' from Records. The rules are only interested parties have access, and the 'victim' can only have access to the 'Crime Report.' You seem to be quoting from the 'Arrest Report' which I only have legal access to."

Other developments from Tom:

"The night of the Woolard blood attack, Miss Woolard made several toll calls from my telephone: Two, to the "Ingram Paper Company" in the City of Industry, CA at 9:27 pm and 10:36 pm. This is on my phone bill."


"LAPD Communications has found the tape by using the Los Angeles Fire Department's computer. Chris I made the 911 call, Not Linda Lee Woolard. January 14th 21:43 Operator 41. I have the tape.

"On the tape, the 911 dispatcher asks me: 'Do you need the paramedics?' I turn to Linda and ask: 'Do you need the paramedics?'

"Linda: 'No.' (calmly)

"Dispatcher (to me): 'Do you need the police?'

"I turn to Linda and ask: 'Do you want the Police?'

"Linda: 'No.'(calmly)


"Earlier in the evening Miss Woolard committed a Federal Felony by impersonating an IRS Agent. She showed me false identification to that effect, and asked to see my BBS. When in the apartment, she proceeded to smear a blood-like substance all over my apartment.

"She said: 'I am a representative of the Church of Scientology and I think you should do what Thomas Small has instructed you to do--Delete Dennis Erlich's access to the Internet.'

"The IRS wants to talk to Miss Woolard. Be advised. Tell her if you see her to call the Criminal Investigation Division in downtown Los Angeles."

Supports Families?

Troy Miranda reported his recent sad experiences upon leaving the cos. He posted three disconnect letters, and other communications from his family.

"What happened a few times though is that threats were made from X [a sister] (and later said 'i was only joking...'). One of the threats from X were: 'I'm going to have your ass fucking investigated, and take my sister back! (Los Angeles)'

And a letter from sister X's husband:

"This is my last comm cycle or letter with you as I am disconnecting from both of you.

"You will probably both be declared SP's due to the SP acts you are committing and have committed.

"Due to this neither I or X can be in comm with you until you both get your ethics in and make up the damage you've done.

"Please do not try to contact myself or X at any time as we will only just refuse such communication. This is all I have to say."
