La Fever, Jeanne . Issaquah, WA 98029

Although we still know comparatively little about Jeanne La Fever, thiscorporation turned up in the Florida Sunbiz database, which seems to be co-owned by Jeanne and Syl La Fever:


Name & Address Title
411 CLEVELAND ST., #411
411 CLEVELAND ST., #411

The same building (but not suite) is also home to many WISE and Scientologist-owned businesses, including Jean Brasel's Freedom of Religion for Everyone, Inc., , as well as Paris Morfopoulos' One Stop Shoppe and the Clearwater offices of fellow Slatkin investors - and Scientologists - The Warner Sisters.

Lacy, Linwood A . Midlothian, VA 23113
Linwood Lacy is a director of Earthlink, and was an early investor in the company. There is no indication that he is a Scientologist. Here is his bio from Earthlink filings with the SEC:

LINWOOD A. LACY, JR. has been a director of the Company since June 1996.
Since October 1996, he has served as President and Chief Executive Officer of Micro Warehouse Incorporated. From 1989 to May 1996, he served as the Co-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Ingram Micro, Inc., a microcomputer products distributor and a then wholly-owned subsidiary of Ingram Industries Inc. From December 1993 to June 1995, Mr. Lacy was also President of Ingram Industries Inc. From June 1995 until April 1996, he was President and CEO of Ingram Industries Inc., and from April 1996 to May 1996 served as its Vice Chairman. Mr. Lacy serves as a director of Ingram Industries Inc., Entex Information Services, Inc. and Micro Warehouse Incorporated.

Laing, RE Bert . Santa Barbara, CA 93108
Laing, Robert . Santa Barbara, CA 93108

There is a Bert Laing who is a Scientologist and OT7, and also a Lyn Laing.

Possibly coincidentally, there is a Robert E. Laing who goes by the name “Bert” who is the CEO of LincCapital, a venture capital firm in Chicago.

Lake, John & Chris . Granada Hills, CA 91344
John and Chris are Scientologists, and Patrons of the IAS, as John Lake and Christine A. Lake. John Lake is a former Guardian's Office staffer. Here he is, portrayed as a frightened victim of the FBI raid on Scn following the GO spy-ring discovery:

""I was frightened by his demands, and thinking they might start breaking the door down, I said, 'Wait, I don't have a key to that door. Let me call the night watchman in there to open it. I dialed the phone and it rang about ten times before John Lake answered it. "I told Lake that there were FBI agents out here in the lobby threatening to break the door down if he didn't open it. I turned to Mr. Linberg and asked to see the warrant (Lake had asked me over the phone to do this). Linberg gave me the warrant and I looked it over quickly. I said to Lake, 'Yes, they do have a search warrant, so you might as well open the door or they will break it open.”

The full story can be read here.

However, a not-quite so rosy view of John Lake is visible in the Stipulation of Evidence against those GO defendants: indeed, it seems John was one of the guards of Michael Meisner, the former GO operative who was held prisoner by CoS when it was feared he would divulge their schemes:

"Page four of that exhibit included a weekend guard schedule for "Herbert" (Mr. Meisner). It listed the following individuals as guards: Jim Douglass, Chuck Reese, Peeter Alvet, John Lake, George Pilat, and Gary Lawrence. Handwriting expert James Miller concludes as follows: "positive" that the first two pages were handwritten by the defendant Willardson; "positive" that the notation on the third page from "Cindy" to "Greg" was written by the defendant Raymond; and "positive" that the handwritten notation on the last page addressed "Dear Cindy" was written by the defendant Willardson. Government Exhibit No. 167 was seized by Special Agent Hillman from Room 15 at the Cedars Complex. It was inventoried and initialed by Special Agent Gonzales."

Christine has an OS page as well.

“I have been in Scientology since 1972. I have a degree in Computer Science and work in the field of Systems Administration for Windows NT in a computer software company called Executive Software. I have been in the software business for about 15 years, having worked at and been an owner in Realworld Corporation for about 11 years prior to living in Los Angeles. Prior to that I was on staff in the Church of Scientology for 8 1/2 years.

I am happily married to John Lake and have been for 20 years, and we have two wonderful children named Cara and Alex, and of course, the obligatory dog, cat and fish. The kids are dynamic and extroverted, and involved in life as a result of their own abilities and our applying Scientology technology to them, loving them and helping them grow up"

Executive Software is, of course, the famous WISE business owned by Patron Meritorious Craig Jensen, which makes the disk-defragmenter software which caused a fracas in Germany when it was incorporated into Windows 2000.

Chris Lake also "reviewed" http://www.admintech.com, and was quoted in a press release:
"I was very impressed with this site," says Chris Lake, another tester. "I am on the Web a lot, and this is the first time I have seen a Web site take so much care to make it easy for the visitor to understand what is being communicated," Lake continues, "And people will be surprised by its refreshing content."

Lan, Jeanie . Clearwater, FL 34625
Pat Balvin & Jeanie Lan

Both Jean and Pat, who are married, are Scientologists, and Jeanie appeared on the 1999 Investor List. According to records from Scientology publications, Pat Balvin is a former staffer and Patron of the IAS, while Jeanie, also a Patron, was in charge of Criminon, one of the CoS ‘community groups’, and ironically, one associated with fellow Slatkin investor, Scientologist and convicted felon, Libby Weigand.

According to his OS page, Patric was in San Diego at the time, involved in the wholesale/retail automobile business. He now appears to be in Florida, however.

Jeanie lists 2357 Stag Run as her address in Criminon’s corporate filing:

She is a director, as is Libby.

The address resolves to Bernardo and Jeanie Lan.

In her OS page, Jeanie says, “My whole life is Scientology.”

Landau, Yael &/or Michelle Landau &/or Asaf Landau . North Hollywood,CA 91607
Yael, Michelle (Asaf Landau)

Asaf Landau is “a 25 year old Israeli male, living in San Francisco, California. I'm interested in stimulating conversation, whatever the topic may be... from stupid wit (oxymoron) to deeper subjects...”
Michelle Yael would seem to be his partner, and she is involved with Friends of Narconon. Presumably she, at least, is Scientologist, and possibly Asaf as well.

Lang, Ben-Zion and Shoshana . Calabasas, CA 91302
Ben and Shoshana’s street address resolves to one Alan M Mintz, but there is no further information about him available. According to an extensive “Clear” List of Scientologists maintained by an outside critic, there is a Shoshy Lang with Clear # 13168 who was being audited at CCLA in the 1980s.

Ben and Shoshana appear on the Clark County, Nevada tax assessment list:

250 139-06-812-004 LANG BEN ZION & SHOSHANA 99 6,300 34,560
107 264-28-610-108 LANG BEN-ZION & SHOSHANA 99 5,040 17,190

LaRose, Bob . Clearwater, FL 33755

United States
(1) 727-445-9707
(1) 727-445-9606
pbb@mail.usld.net mailto:pbb@mail.usld.net>

Perfectly Balanced Books also handled Slatkin investments for Sunnyside Investments (profiled elsewhere on both this list and the 1999 Investor List). According to Mr. LaRose, a former employee with Scientologist-owned firm Wiseman and Burke (profiled elsewhere on this list), he was the contact person for Slatkin at Sunnyside Investments before the account moved to Perfectly Balanced Books. He does not have a personal claim against Slatkin, as far as he knows.

Mr. LaRose is not a Scientologist.

Larsen, Karen . Santa Fe, NM 87505
Larson, Karen Chase . Sante Fe, NM 87501

That address resolves to Whitney Chase, Karen Chase and William Modahl, according to Infospace.

This webpage suggests that Karen is employed at Ortiz Middle School in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Larson, Alan H & Janet W . Sheriden, OR 97378
Alan, Janet and Barbara Silver share the same address: the main office of Delphi Academy, a Scientology school owned and operated by the Larsons:
The Larsons have been profiled extensively on the 1999 Investor List; Barbara, who is a registrar at the school, is also a Scientologist.

Lasker, Alex - Trustee . Marina del Ray, CA 90292
Apparently a screenwriter with no ties to Scientology, he co-wrote “Beyond Rangoon,” which starred Patricia Arquette and Spalding Gray, according to this Castle Rock promotional site

Leberger, Dani & Tami . Haifa 31250 Israel
Dani is cited in Source #78 as a Flag course completion in 1992.

Nothing for Tami Lemberger or Tamara Lemberger found.

There is also a "Dan Lemberger", a chiropractor who is quite the proponent of traditional subluxation theory, or straight chiropractic, at Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic. He apparently graduated rather recently (in 1997) , but was speaking at seminars on subluxations and arranging chiro. events by 1999, as well as serving in a "Chiropractic mission" to Brazil. For *this* Dan Lemberger, see:

He frequently appears as a guest on PBS' Nightly Business Report with Paul Kangas, and he is Chief Technical Commentator for the Business News Radio Network. Mark has been ranked a top market timer by both Timer Digest and Hulbert Financial Digest. “

There is no sign that he’s a Scientologist.

Jeremy and Matthew could be children.

Levi, Ilan & Barbara - Trustees Santa Barbara, CA 93109-1790
Levi, Ilan M & Barbara G Trustees . Santa Barbara, CA 93109

Several possible Ilans, including a French tech businessman , and a retired Lucent/Bell Labs counselor .

Definitely a philanthropist, however; with his wife Barbara, he is a donor to the Santa Barbara Parkinson's Foundation, and serves on their board of directors.

Barbara Levi appears to be a prominent physicist. On the physics faculty at UC Santa Barbara, she is an editor of Physics Today. She is on a Leo Szilard lectureship committee, and was also a contributor. She is on the Executive Committee of the American Physical Society Forum on Education. She's also on the board of Girls Incorporated (a sort of more modern Girl Scouts) in Santa Barbara. She's studied and spoken on pretty much everything from global warming to nuclear weapons, and has written on national security topics. She graduated from Carleton in 1965, and sent off this update to an alumni page :

"Barbara Levi, email: bgl@worldnet.att.net mailto:bgl@worldnet.att.net> Most days I pull on my sweats and go down to my home office, where I plunk out stories for Physics Today. Nice life, but a bit solitary. So I welcomed the chance to teach a course in introductory physics at UCSB last winter quarter and this. As an antidote to my solitary writing activities, the 300 biology majors who take that course is overkill! But I am really happy to have the chance to be in the classroom again. Can anyone recommend sources of physics problems with biological and medical applications? I'm still serving on the APS Forum on Education, which is headed by fellow Carl, Paul Zitzewitz, who succeeded yet another fellow Carl...and now a NJ Congressional representative, Rush Holt! Best wishes to all from sunny California!"

She also presented a 'Forum On Physics & Society'

Bernard Levine, MD of Riverside Drive also seems to be involved in the National Home Health Care Corp, according to this SEC filing:

BERNARD LEVINE, M.D., has been a Director of the Company since July 1983. For more than 20 years he has been a Professor of Internal Medicine at New York University School of Medicine with a sub-specialty in Allergy and Immunology. Dr. Levine devotes a portion of his time as a private consultant to the health care industry.

Levine, Richard & Barbara - Family 1995 Trust . Tarzana, CA 91356
Levine, Laura . Tarzana, CA 91356

Richard Levine is a low profile Scientologist who seems to be curiously absent from many of the usual places where wealthy Scientologists appear, including the Super Power Building donation list and the IAS Patron List. The Levine Family does appear in IAS-86 with a $20,000 donation, and according to CoS publications, Richard has taken the L courses.

Richard is mentioned extensively throughout Reed’s deposition before the SEC. According to his testimony, Richard Levine is an “old friend”, and his co-partner in Tarzana Partners. He also has trading authority and “watches over” many of Reed’s trading accounts, and introduced Reed to another future business partner, Statistical Sciences.

The only listing for Tarzana Partners in the California corporate database is the following:

Lichtenberg, Matt . Los Angeles, CA 90024
According to this article, Matt is a partner at celebrity business management firm Goldman, Lichtenberg, Wasserman and Grossman:

"The music industry [hierarchy] is completely different from [that of] film and television," explains Matt Lichtenberg, a partner in Goldman, Lichtenberg, Wasserman and Grossman--the Los Angeles-based business management firm that handles Brandy's financial concerns. Lichtenberg says that a singer-musician's first concern should be securing an experienced manager although, typically, a model-actor will first find an agent.

Matt Lichtenberg solicits support for the Norwood Kinds Foundation:

If you would like to make a donation to the Foundation, please make checks payable to:

The Norwood Kids Foundation

Livingston, Anita & Marty . Sherman Oaks, CA 91423
Marty Livingston was on the 1993 WISE California list, but neither he nor Anita appear elsewhere on the list, which could mean that they are no longer Scientologists, or are members of the Sea Organization.

Lob, David & Michele . Laguna Beach, CA 92651
David Lob is the president of West Coast Diamond Exchange, a division of Liberty Diamonds.

The Lonstein family, Tony, Joan, Siri and Kathy, are all Scientologists and generous donors to the International Association of Scientologists, with both Tony and Joan donating $100K. Joan is an OT 7 and Tony is also in his OT levels. Siri seems to be on staff with the Church of Scientology.

Tony Lonstein was an initial investor in Digital Lightwave, and the “Lonstein Option” was mentioned in Brian Haney’s lawsuit against Bryan Zwan:

72. On October 2, 1995, Plaintiff gave his consent to the Second Haney Shares Option Amendment, after requesting that certain changes be made to protect his interest~s. If Defendant Zwan had informed Plaintiff that Digital had granted the March - July 1995 Digital IPO Options, the Baum-Hedlund Option or the Lonstein IPO Option, or that planning for the Digital IPO was well under way, Plaintiff would not have agreed to the Second Haney Shares Option Amendment because he would have realized his shares had a substantially higher value than that represented by the Haney Shares Option Exercise Price.

Tony and Joan are both on the 2001 Patron List, and Tony’s (former?) company, AddTel Communications, was a member of WISE:

Lyons, Charlie . Lilleton, CO 80128

A major figure in the Colorado sports industry, Charlie Lyons spent more than a decade as CEO of Ascent Entertainment, a sports entertainment conglomerate whose assets included, among other things, the Colorado Avalanche, Denver Nuggets and the Pepsi Center - and, at one point, Beacon Communications LLC, the film production company that eventually wound up in the hands of Slatkin investors Armyam Bernstein, Richard Rosman and Kevin O’Donnell.

In 1999, Lyons put together a tentative deal to sell the two teams and their arena to Bill and Nancy Walton Laurie, heiress to the Waltons.

DENVER (AP) -- Ascent Entertainment Group Inc. has agreed to sell the Denver Nuggets, the Colorado Avalanche and the teams' future home, the Pepsi Center, in a deal valued at $400 million.
The sale will be to a partnership controlled by Bill Laurie and his wife, Wal-Mart heiress Nancy Walton Laurie of Columbia, Mo.
Charlie Lyons, currently chief executive officer of Ascent Entertainment, will become president of the partnership and will own an interest in the partnership, the company said Monday.

The halcyon days for Lyons ended shortly after this announcement, however, after the deal became mired in no fewer than three lawsuits, partly as a result of concerns amongst shareholders that Lyons hadn’t followed an open bidding process in brokering the deal. In this column, Denver Post writer Mark Kizla calls for his resignation.

After the deal fell through, shareholder unhappiness forced Lyons to resign from his post with Ascent, which resulted in a multimillion dollar severance package:

Lyons gets $3.6 million
Charlie Lyons, formerly the president, chairman and CEO of Denver-based Ascent Entertainment Group, will receive a severance package worth $3.6 million. Lyons has been on leave since June following a dispute about the sale of the company's sports teams. He resigned this week.

Mancuso, Chris . Irvine, CA 92612
Chris Mancuso, or Christopher J. Mancuso, was involved in Ron Rakow’s yogurt culture scam in the mid-1980s, according to this court filing from the bankruptcy of Culture Farms:

Chris J. Mancuso was also in business with another Slatkin investor, Donald Rackemann, who appears on the original investor list as the president of PriceNET USA, an Irvine, California ISP.

Mancuso and Rackemann were partners in this company:

Here is a brief bio of Don Rackemann, from an SEC filing:

Donald Rackemann has been the Chairman of the Board and the Chief Executive Officer since 1998. Prior to heading up Price Net USA.com, Mr. Rackemann was semi-retired but very involved in the manufacturing of golf equipment. From 1988 to 1994, he served as Chairman and CEO of National Telephone & Communications, Inc. a long-distance telephone service provider, which he co-founded and was responsible for its early growth and success. Incomnet, Inc. acquired the company during 1994.

Don ran into trouble in his application to add a 1,000+ square foot expansion, with pool and spa, to his home:

The proposal was eventually withdrawn in the face of opposition from his neighbours.

Here is a sales pitch for PriceNET USA.

He also likes fast cars.

Chris Mancuso was also involved in this company:

Jerry Ballah was also involved with the lactic culture scam, and seems to have been mentioned by the Van Harlingens (!) as part of a real estate deal in Florida that somehow went awry. He also seems to have been involved with Donald Rackemann and PriceNET USA, but is no longer with the company.

During his days at World Technology Marketing, Jerry made headlines when the company was accused of credit fraud:

“Eight to 10 USC students claim to have been defrauded by the Irvine-based World Technology Marketing Inc., which is also known as Worldtech, World Marketing Alliance and World Marketing, officials from the Career Planning and Placement Center said.
One student, the first to make a complaint, claimed to have been charged $495 without her consent, though she did sign a blank credit card statement …
The engineering student who found a charge on her credit card after the interview tried to call the company and said she has received no reply.
"Ballah has also identified himself first as an independent representative, later as the vice president of Worldtech and finally as president of the company when contacted by DPS," Devega said.”

Here is the official warning against World Technology Marketing Inc. from USC:

Despite a seemingly heaven-made match, PriceNET and Jerry Ballah have since parted ways, with the company filing suit against Ballah for a laundry list of alleged offences, as detailed in this filing:

Price Net USA, Inc. has filed a lawsuit in the superior court of Orange County, California against the former Director/President Jerry Ballah, Bruce Ballah, The Big Store.com, The Big Hub.com, The Big Biz.com, OhGolly.com, IPowerBiz, PriceNet Marketing, and MGI WorldNet.com (the Ballah group). The lawsuit was filed during August 2000 in the amount of not less than $25,000,000 for Breach of Fiduciary Duty, Fraud, Breach of Contract, International Interference with Contractual Relationships, Misappropriation of Trade Secrets, Unfair Competition, Accounting, and Injunctive Release. The discovery process is ongoing and the Company is vigorously pursuing the matter toward a favorable outcome. The case is set for a settlement hearing in August 2001.

These days, Jerry is running his own e-commerce “network marketing” venture, iPowerbiz.

Minshull Paul R & Ann H Plano, TX 75039
Paul appears to be with US Tangible Investment Corporation, a coin appraisal company in Texas:

However, according to this press release, he is also the Chief Operating Officer of Heritage Numismatic Auctions:

As with all Heritage online sales, bidders on the items on eBay can view high-quality, full-color images of all auction lots.
"This special event will be promoted during National Coin Week on the eBay home page and coin category page, and on Heritage's home page. Heritage will also encourage participation through our unparalleled mailing and e-mailing lists," said Paul Minshull, Heritage's Chief Operating Officer

Heritage Coin offers a full service internet bidding site. It also boasts this authoritatively named subsidiary:

The Numismatic Certification Institute (NCI) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Heritage Capital Corporation of Dallas, the world's largest rare coin dealer. As of this writing, NCI is not actively grading coins; however, many NCI-graded coins remain on the market. NCI standards-by Heritage's own admission-are from three-quarters of a point to a point-and-a-half more liberal than the standards set forth by NGC and PCGS. Thus, a coin graded Mint State-65 by NCI and priced at $50 might in actuality be the equivalent of only a Mint State-64 coin from either NGC or PCGS.

Minshull, Ruth E . Northport, MI 90027
This is obviously the wrong postal code, since it resolves to Los Angeles (coincidentally, the same zip code is used by addresses within the Big Blue circle)
Ruth Minsbull is almost certainly Ruth Minshull, an oldtime Scientologist who wrote several Scientology-related books that were attacked by the church as being “off source.”

She was even mentioned by current RTC executive Guillaume Lesevre in passing at the famous 1982 Missionholder Conference in San Francisco:

Now when you come back, I suggest definitely that you get rid of all those Ruth Minshull and Peter Gillham and other publications and you just get on LRH books. Just go down in your reception in your bookstore and just get those other books out of there.

Several of her books, in fact, were banned. It’s not clear whether she stayed in the CoS after the controversy.

This speculation on Ruth’s fate came from a Freezoner:

Ruth Minshull was a Scientologist who wrote 2 excellent books on practical use of Scientology principles. One was 'How to Choose Your People', on the Tone Scale, the other, 'Miracles for Breakfast', was on child-raising. I believe she also wrote some shorter pamphlets.
The copyrights on both of these, as with all similar books, were held by Hubbard, not the actual author. The books were suppressed during the purge of the early 80's, and I'm reasonably certain that Minshull has been declared.

Recently, Ruth submitted this whimsical article on little-used words to the Christian Science Monitor:

She is also quoted as an ‘author and educator’ in this essay on income taxes, “the vampire of civilization,” by Tom Hill, almost certainly a Scientologist, possibly one practicing outside the church:

As stated earlier, (page 6) the basis of morale is production. Author and educator, Ruth Minshull agrees, "How a person spends his time strongly influences his emotional tone. If he is idle, without goal or direction, he will go downscale."50Downscale means to go down in emotional tone. What is the significance of this statement, that production is the basis of morale, in relation to income taxes? Is there really any connection? Does the earlier section on the history of taxes have any meaning in this discussion? I believe the answer to all of these questions is yes.

Aha. The same postbox is used for something called SAA Publishing, according to this site offering “work at home opportunities”:

In 1980, SAA Publishing put out Minshull’s book on destructive, selfish children, and is listed as being in Ann Arbor, Michigan:

Ruth Minshull, How to Cure the Selfish Destructive Child. Ann Arbor, Michigan: SAA Publishing, 1980. Pbk. pp.40.

Minshull, Lee S . Tarzana, CA 91356
Lee Minshull is “a leading expert in gold coins” according to his company’s website.

Here are his references, from his corporate webpage:

Belongs to the following organizations
Sotheby's Internet Associate
American Numismatic Association (life member)

Malaga Bank

According to these city planning meeting minutes, Lee’s address is the same as listed earlier for Jason Levine:

Mr. and Mrs. Lee Minshull
416 Paseo Del Mar
Palos Verdes Estates, CA. 90274

So Jason Levine is using Lee Minshull’s address, and Lee Minshull is using the Levine’s address.

You know, the strange thing is that I still don’t have a clue if these people are Scientologists. I’m assuming they’re related to Ruth, but I can’t tell if she’s still a Scientologist either. Their names don’t turn up on any donor lists or course completions, but it seems weird that they would hook up with Reed by accident.

Minkoff, David MD Pension Fd/Profit Sharing Plan . Clearwater, FL 34615
Dr. David Minkoff was the Scientologist doctor on duty at the hospital to which Lisa McPherson was brought, only to arrive DOA, by Church of Scientology staffers who had been treating her for the last 22 days.

February 21, 1997 By: THOMAS C. TOBIN

“Church officials say no one realized it was an emergency. They say McPherson distrusted doctors and was reluctant to get help. They say they finally convinced her to see Dr. David I. Minkoff, a Scientologist who is on staff at the New Port Richey hospital.

Abelson confirmed that one of McPherson's two companions in the van was Scientology medical liaison Janis Johnson, a medical doctor who is not licensed in Florida.”

From the affidavit of a former Scientologist:

I went to the doctor, a scientologist who was not ashamed to demand me to pay $150 for treatment. When you get $30.00 pay, this is no small amount of money. (Dr Minkoff, at the Countryside clinic in Clearwater).

He was a member of WISE as of 1999:

Neuman Doug Ashland, OR 97520
Neuman Doug Ashland, OR 97520

Doug Neuman is the Scientologist and Oregon real estate developer who Reed claimed was a business partner in his appearance before the SEC. He and his wife, Becky, are also WISE members, and Doug was one of the original investors in Digital Lightwave.

Doug, Rebecca and their company, Mountain Park Development (in which Reed was also a partner) were all involved in this lawsuit over real estate in Oregon:

In July 1994, plaintiff and defendant Mountain Park Development, LLC (Mt. Park), entered into an agreement relating to the construction of a subdivision. Under that agreement, plaintiff was to be paid a fixed price for construction of the subdivision improvements such as roads and utilities. The agreement also provided that, if both parties agreed, plaintiff would also construct some or all of the houses in the subdivision. The contract terms specified the division of profits from the sale of any houses plaintiff might build.

Plaintiff began construction under the contract in July 1994 and continued to perform work thereunder until October 1996. In October 1996, a dispute arose between plaintiff and Mt. Park over payments allegedly owed to plaintiff for its labor and supervision as general contractor for the subdivision improvements. At about the same time, a dispute also arose relating to payments Mt. Park allegedly owed plaintiff for several of the houses it built. In December 1996, plaintiff filed several construction liens against those properties.

Doug Neuman is also involved in this bizarre libel suit:

An Ashland developer has filed a defamation lawsuit against a man who wrote his unkind words via e-mail. Doug Neuman claims Tom Sander made false and defamatory statements about him and his family last year. His suit filed in Jackson County asks for at least $450,000.
Sander's e-mails allegedly questioned Neuman's sexual orientation, claimed he lived off his wife's inheritance and accused him of "exhibiting ethnic intolerance toward Jews," according to the suit.
Gilstrap described his client and Sander as old friends whose relationship soured over a development deal in which Sander lost money. Sander took Neuman to court, only to lose at trial.

He is also involved in the hotel business, including the ill-fated Mark Antony, a restoration project that also involved Reed Slatkin.

He and Becky were honoured by the Ashland Historic Commission for their work on the Ashland Springs hotel

Becky is the sister of Cooper and Bobby Rounds, both of whom also invested with Slatkin.

According to this website, the company sells airplanes:

William wrote this embarrassingly blatant testimonial for fellow Scientologist and Slatkin investor Daniel Jacobs (see his entry elsewhere):

Dear SalesDoctor,

I have recently been introduced to your electronic magazine (e-zine). I must express the impact which has been created upon me by the articles written by Mr. Daniel Jacobs Ph.D. I find his writing method superb and the subject matter vital to what we are faced with daily. Creating, forwarding and closing the transaction!

Helpful, rather invaluable, information such as he has managed to articulate in his three articles is a real pleasure to discover. I'm confident I'm not the only one to notice or mention this talent but want to make certain he receives appropriate recognition.

Thank you for your magazine and supporting dissemination of such useful data.

When can we expect more articles from Mr. Jacobs?
Best regards,
William J. Newman

Novitsky Norm La Canada, CA 91011
Novitsky, Norm . La Canada/Flintridge, CA 91011

An earlier version of this listing reported a recollection by an ex-Scientologist who knew Mr. Novitsky that during his time in the Sea
Org, Mr. Novitsky had been sent to the RPF (Rehabilitation Project Force): Scientology's prison camp. Mr. Novitsky, through his
attorney, disputes this. Upon further reflection, our informant decided that his recollection was faulty. Although he personally knew
over 100 fellow Sea Org members who did time on the RPF, often on trumped-up charges, he now believes that his inclusion of Mr. Novitsky on this list was erroneous. He regrets the error, as do we.

Norm is a Patron of the IAS and, with his wife Terri, a Cornerstone Club Member of the Super Power Building. In past years, he was also on staff at the American Saint Hill Organization (ASHO), was a member of the Sea Org, and served as a cramming officer.

According to other sources, Norm is also partners with fellow Club Reed member Ike Kezborn, and has several children in scientology.

He’s also listed in the California 1993 WISE Directory, and again in the 1999 WISE Directory at the following address:

Ohl, Chuck . Glendale, CA 91205

"There are other church intelligence people there that I used to work with when I was a church intelligence officer. To name some of them, President Chuck Ohl, Paul Poulin co-partner of the New York office, and Brad Ballentine and Tom Reitze of the home office. Paul Mannix of the Sacramento office is ex-Guardian Office staff and there are others. "

Chuck handled Monica Pignotti about Quentin Hubbard's death:

"In June, 1977, I received a call from Chuck Ohl, who worked in the Guardian's Office. He told me that Quentin had passed away last October. According to the story Chuck told me, Quentin had been found in a coma in his car near the airport in Las Vegas. The cause of his death was listed as "unknown" and Mary Sue had ordered a full investigation into his death. Chuck wanted to know if Quentin had called or tried to contact me. I was stunned. I had felt for a long time that something had happened, but hearing the news really shocked me. I told Chuck that Quentin had written me just before he left and that I would send him copies of the letters and do everything I could to help with the investigation. I felt that his mother had a right to know what happened to her son. I knew that she really loved him. I made copies of the letters and sent them to Chuck.

Ohl's address googles to DMA on the WISE list.

John is involved with this company, Fingerscan Pty.

Helen is mentioned in this excerpt from Believe What You Like by C.H. Rolph:

“Later he said that in 1968 he had a letter from Mrs Helen Parselle, wife of the scientologists' legal adviser, which seemed to him to be 'offering a deal' after they had issued their libel writ. He took it to mean that if he presented a petition to Parliament on behalf of a scientologist they might drop the libel action. 'It was quite an improper suggestion. It was asking me to forget all the representations which had been made to me, and I couldn't do that.'”

Charles Parselle was the Legal Advisor for Guardian’s Office World Wide, and was also involved in Mission Corporate Cleanup, and was at one time married to Helen; John could be their son. According to a source who has asked not to be identified, Charles is no longer involved with Scientology.

No Parselles have OS pages at present.

Payson, George S Clearwater, FL 34615
George S. Payson, his wife, Sheri and Chip, possibly a son or other relative, are all Scientologists who were last believed to be living in Clearwater, Florida. George had donated $20 K to the International Association of Scientologists as of 1986, and Chip is commended for his work in a memo to members of the Clearwater Community Volunteers.

Sheri is the former Exec Director of the True School (see also Steven Collbran, whose wife worked for the same school), and apparently left her post to work for the CoS in Tampa, according to the SP Times' "Scientology's Children" :

"The school is not in any way connected to the Church of Scientology, they do not fund us or have any management over us, Christine Collbran, the school's vice president, said in a letter to the Times. But it does have ties to Scientology. School officers are listed in a local directory of Scientologists. The last executive director, Sheri Payson, left the school to work for a Scientology church in Tampa, according to a newsletter. Child auditing, a Scientology counseling proces The True School is licensed by Applied Scholastics, Collbran said in a letter. According to a brochure, Applied Scholastics' trademark is owned by a group called ABLE International. The brochure says: ABLE creates recognizable changes in society."

Weigand, Alex
1175 Jackson Rd

Weigand, Libby W
1175 Jackson Rd

Look, it’s Libby Weigand, Scientologist and former DIGL executive and director of the local Criminon program.

In 1980, Libby was convicted of extortion for attempting to blackmail her uncle, a US senator in order to gain access to finances:

Elizabeth Eagleton Weigand today was given on indeterminate sentence that could result in a maximum term of four and a half years for an extortion attempt against her uncle, Senator Thomas F. Eagleton. Federal District Judge H. Kenneth Wangelin said that Mrs. Welgand's sentencing would be turned over to the United States Parole Comission under the Young Adult Offender Act. Mrs. Welgand is 24 years old. Her former attorney, Stephen Poludniak, was sentenced to four years tn prison and three years probation for conspiring to extort $220,000 from the Eagleton family business, the Missouri Pipe Fittings company, days before the August primary election. Mr. Eagleton, Democrat, won nomination and was re-elected last month. Mr. Poludniak testified that he and Mrs. Weigand had tried to blackmail Mr. Eagleton with a fictitious document accusing him of being bisexual in order to force him to buy back Mrs. Weigand's stock.

She went on to become a former executive with Digital Lightwave, along with her “cousin in law” Doug Weigand, who died in a one-car traffic accident outside the corporate offices in the late 1990s. Libby also worked at DIGL, according to the following bio from an SEC filing:

MS. WEIGAND has been Executive Vice President since September 1994. Prior to joining the Company, from August 1992 to September 1994, Ms. Weigand served as administrator of a private health care concern. From March 1991 to August 1992, Ms. Weigand was Director of Sales at Kenfil Distribution, Inc., a software distributor. At Kenfil, she managed a staff of regional sales managers and account executives, restructured the sales and operations divisions and helped negotiate national contracts with companies such as Packard Bell, WordPerfect Corporation, and Borland International.

Libby has an OS page and has since married David Regan. She now styles herself “Libby Regan”.

David Regan is a former staffer, according to Scientology publication records.

David was also involved with this company, which also features fellow Slatkin investor Chuck Borom and Scientologist and former staffer Jon Stupak:


The company was dissolved in 1997; Supak is also involved with Art Headquarters, Inc.

David Regan wrote this letter to the editor of the St. Petersburg Times on the subject of recent public departures from Clearwater:

A Times reader wrote on April 25 that he was cutting his losses and moving to another city. Another wrote on April 26 that she was also leaving. Both of these neighbors felt that the state of affairs in Clearwater was so awful that they could no longer tolerate living here.
The public departure of my unhappy neighbors got me to thinking, and it took about five seconds to discover my true response. Ta-ta.

Richard Reinis was a plaintiff in the somewhat mysterious lawsuit against case against Evergreen Ventures Inc, which listed Reed Slatkin and several other Slatkin investors as co-plaintiffs.
There is a Richard Reinis who heads up the “Compliance Alliance”, a labour-management partnership which requires periodic monitoring of independent cutting and sewing manufacturers:

According to other articles, Richard Reinis, a lawyer with years of experience in the textiles industry, participates in other fashion and fabric-related legal issues:

Among those applauding the change in the retail industry's attitude is Richard Reinis, founder of the Los Angeles-based Compliance Alliance, a nonprofit group that monitors clothing manufacturers' subcontractors. Reinis said the retail industry initially refused to consider his proposals requiring manufacturers to hire independent workplace monitors. But in recent weeks, retailers and retail trade groups have asked him for help in developing anti-sweatshop strategies. "The initial reaction of retailers was fear--fear that publicity surrounding the issue would adversely affect them," Reinis said. "The second reaction was concern about possible legal liability. Recently, there's been a noticeable change in the industry's attitude--a change for the better. However, some retailers are responding better than others."

A Richard Reinis is also responsible for bringing Krispy Kreme Donuts to Southern California as the region’s first franchisee, according to this story.

The address of the Krispy Kreme LLC in question, Great Circle Family Foods, confirms that this is our Richard, and Reed ripped off the man who brought Krispy Kreme Donuts to Southern California. For shame.

Tom Reitze was the Information Officer at the Guardian’s Office during the heyday of Snow White. As of 1999, he was the CEO of WISE company David Morse & Associates in Glendale, CA.
Nancy Reitze, possibly Tom’s wife, was a spokesman for the church in Clearwater in 1979, and is still active.

From ARS Week in Review (note Cambigue):

The Los Angeles Times reported on November 18th, 1999 that members of Scientology contributed to a domestic violence center.

"The Women's Auxiliary of the Church of Scientology recently donated boxes and bags of clothing and toys to the Glendale Domestic Violence Center. The project was chaired by Margaret des Marteaux, who hd members gather clothing and other items over the last couple of months. Lissa Martinez, director of the Domestic Violence Project, and Sylvia Hines, chief executive officer of the YWCA in Glendale, accepted the donations. Along with des Marteaux were Judy Cox, executive director of the Church of Scientology Mission of the Foothills, Nancy Reitze, auxiliary chairwoman, and Lee Cambique, auxiliary member."

Reso, Brian . Sherman Oaks, CA 91423
Brian and his wife Joan are both Scientologists, Patrons of the IAS, and have reached OT7. He turns up with an offbeat comment in this story from the Clearwater Sun:

“No one has ever told me I came from the planet Helatrobus," counters Brian Reso, a 42-year-old Los Angeles decorator and Operating Thetan Level 6. "Likewise, Scientology doesn't feed you any beliefs about God."

Rhoads, Doris Hunt & Scott . Clearwater, FL 33755
Scott Rhoads is a Scientologist from Florida and describes himself this way in his OS page:

I am a commercial Captain as well as an avid yacht racer and cruiser. I have logged well over 100,000 miles at sea and I have visited countries around the world. I have a healthy collection of sea stories that range from full gales in a sail boat off the coast of Mexico and amazing victories on sailing yachts to calm and beautiful passages across oceans and bays.
Currently I am volunteering with a non-profit sailing school and teaching maritime skills to children and adults. It’s been a lot of fun. As part of this I have done minor to major yacht repairs and have helped prepare a number of other people to cruise to Mexico, the South Pacific and Caribbean.

He goes on to say that he has been a Scientologist for over fifteen years, and that it has helped him become, among other things, “more financially stable.”

He also wrote this letter on active and passive sailing.
Scott very recently formed this non-profit corporation:

Richards, Marjorie Morse . Alamo, CA 94507
Marjorie and Stephen Richards live at this address.

Stephen Richards is the Cantor Emeritus at the Congregation B’nai Tikvah, and is married to Marjorie, according to this webpage:

Before entering the School of Sacred Music, Stephen worked as a composer-arranger in musical theater. After completing his Cantorial Studies in 1969 he served congregations in Rochester, NY, and Indianapolis before becoming the Editor of Transcontinental Musical Publications and faculty member of the School of Sacred Music of Hebrew Union College, from 1977-1980. He then moved to Phoenix, and served there with Temple Beth Israel. He has sung with and directed Pro Cantione of Phoenix and directed the music for North Phoenix Corporate Ministry Programs. He has conducted choruses at Butler University, the University of Rochester and Oral Roberts University. He is currently the conductor of the Bay Area Jewish Chorus in San Francisco.

Robinson, Donna & Robbie . Los Angeles, CA 90042
This is Donna and Robbie Robinson, longtime Scientologists.

Donna seems to have an interesting background in 1982, perhaps was with the old ex-GO crowd?
From David Mayo's affidavit:
"During early 1982, David Miscavige and Shelley Miscavige ran an "Offload Project" during which a large number of SO members, including several members of the CMO were "found unfit" and thrown out of the SO. This project was directly under Pat Broeker. The majority of those persons that Pat Broeker and David Miscavige didn't like were gotten rid of, including Anne Taskett, Donna Robinson, Melanie Murray, Dede Voegeding, Gale Irwin, Lois Reisdorf (all CMO), plus other crew."
Since then, Sasha Zbitnoff, an ex-scn, said that "My other communications with Scientologists (e.g. Donna Robinson) didn't get me much for responses.

She's a Patron with Honors, and Robbie is a Patron, of the IAS.
Robbie has this to say on his OS page:

I became a very successful business man after I had been in Scientology for some years and had trained on the applied philosophy that is Scientology. As a result I sold my business very profitably and established a private foundation which supports the pursuit of religious and spiritual freedom. I have also been able to return to my original purpose of being an artist and have begun my first novel. Already I have great interest in the book after only a few chapters. I have a wife and son who are both Scientologists and we have a very full life with many friends and activities that make every day a joy to live. And all this as a result of my spiritual advancement in Scientology, because I began my journey as a down and out broke hippie in the sixties, more confused about things than the average citizen. It shows what can be accomplished if you just make the effort to advance yourself."

Rosen, Linda . Beverly Hills, CA 90213
Linda Rosen is a Scientologist and Patron of the International Association of Scientologists, as well as a volunteer in Clearwater, although she appears to hail from Beverly Hills. According to recent reports, her investments with Slatkin were managed by Irene and Jack Dirmann, profiled in depth here. The Dirmanns apparently also acted as Rosen's Scientology "Field Staff Members", which means that they received a commission of 10% on Scientology services that she puchased.

Rosenberg, Steven H - MD . Redondo Beach, CA 90277
It might be this fellow, who doesn’t flaunt his doctorate.

Rosenkranz, TL . Los Angeles, CA 90065
Rosenkranz, Thelma L . Los Angeles, CA 90065

Several Rosenkranzes are at this address, T and Charles.
I assume T is TL.
TL is a Scientologist who completed a course on the Freewinds in 1994.
He wrote defending Battlefield Earth against a reviewer who dared call it bad:

"Tank the Reviewer! BE is on my top 10 list of favorite books...and with the talent putting this film together it could be a real blockbuster. Travolta, Christensen, Barry -- If I enjoy it 1/2 as much as the book it will be a hit! TL Rosenkranz 2000-05-08 Los Angeles "

He runs a framing shop in Glendale that advertises in the WhoWhatWhere Scn directory of services:

Rosman, Richard & Fran Morris . Pacific Palisades, CA 90272
Rosman, Richard - Beacon Communications LLC . Los Angeles, CA 90067
Rosman, Richard Trustee (LeWinter & Rosman Prft Sharing Plan) . Encino,CA 91436

Lewinter & Rosman were also early investors in Earthlink, apparently as a firm. Anthony A. LeWinter is listed as a lawyer in the Martindale Hubbell database, and gives the Ventura street address, but precious little other information.

Richard Rosman, meanwhile, has been profiled elsewhere in the list. He is connected to Beacon Films and Armyan Bernstein, as well as numerous other LLCs. His wife is Fran Morris Rosman, and they are also on the advisory board of the Venice Health Clinic.

Richard Rosman’s Profit Sharing Plan shares the same Encino address as the one and only Norton Karno, although a different suites. That address also resolves to:
Smith & Goodfriend A Prof Corp
16255 Ventura Blvd #600 Encino, CA 91436-2311 USA

Ross, Bradley . Los Angeles, CA 90025

The address resolves to a maildrop for fan letters to Lou Diamond Phillips and the cast of Friends, and seems to be the office of Jon Farhat Inc., a “visual effects supervisor” who has been involved with several ‘big name’ movies, including Liar, Liar and Doctor Doolittle.

However, it seems likely that it is, in fact, this lawyer, Bradley D. Ross.
He appears to have moved offices to another building on Wilshire, but the middle initial corresponds with the Bradley D. Ross to whom this address resolves.

Roswell, Joan . Boulder, CO 80304
Roswell, Joan . Boulder, CO 80304

Joan Roswell, a longtime Scientologist, heads up the local branch of Criminon (the Church’s “outreach” program aimed at offenders)at the Los Angeles Central Juvenile Hall. She was also one of Reed’s original investors according to his testimony before the Securities and Exchanges Commission.

Roth, Charles W . San Francisco, CA 94102
There is a Charles Roth who is a California certified accountant involved with this French hotel venture:
The company also features a chief financial officer named “Wole Wey.”

Rubin, Irving . Southfield, MI 48076
Rubin, Irving R Irrevocable Trust Southfield, MI 48076

Irving A. Rubin is a Michigan businessman who has been involved in a number of attention-garnering deals in the past.

He was the president of CPI Plastics, a limited liability corporation that received a warning from the Georgia Environmental Protection Division over toxins released into the groundwater, but that company has since gone dormant. Rubin’s current company is the Rubin Investment Corporation.

During his divorce in the late 80s, Rubin made a unique argument for reducing the amount of money to be granted to his soon-to-be-ex-wife:
Defendant next argues that his exposure to liability from criminal charges in antitrust litigation pending against him at the time of the divorce should have been deducted from the marital estate. The court considered this potential antitrust liability in valuing the involved asset, Container Products, at zero. But it did not directly subtract this potential liability from the marital estate. We find it appropriate to hold defendant personally responsible for such criminal penalties rather than subtracting them from the marital estate. Thus, we do not find this dispositional ruling inequitable.

The criminal charges were in relation to certain unorthodox business transactions related to Rubin’s steel drum business, as explained in this Department of Justice release:

Rubin was the principal owner, board chairman and CEO of Container Products, Inc. ("CPI"), a Michigan corporation that operates steel drum plants in Ohio and in Missouri, Louisiana and Oklahoma; Bonczyk was CPI's executive vice-president and treasurer. Steel drums are large containers (ranging in size from about 13 gallons to about 57 gallons) used most frequently to package chemical and petroleum products for storage or transport. The superseding indictment returned on March 6, 1991, charged Rubin, Bonczyk, CPI, two other corporations, and three other individuals each with one count of criminal antitrust conspiracy, in violation of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. §1, and two counts of mail fraud, in violation of 18 U.S.C. §1341.2

CPI Inc. was eventually bought out by US Can in 1996, and in this SEC filing, one of Rubin’s co-shareholders in the company is revealed to be fellow Slatkin investor Ronald Schmier:

THIS STOCK PURCHASE AGREEMENT, dated as of August 2, 1996 (the "Agreement"), is entered into by and among United States Can Company, a Delaware corporation ("U.S. Can"), CPI PLASTICS, INC., a Delaware corporation ("CPI Plastics"), CP OHIO, INC., a Delaware corporation ("CP Ohio"), and CP ILLINOIS, INC., a Delaware corporation ("CP Illinois" and, together with CP Ohio and CPI Plastics, the "Acquired Companies"), and Irving A. Rubin, a resident of Michigan ("Rubin"), Robert Bonczyk, a resident of Michigan ("Bonczyk"), Sally Levy, a resident of Michigan, Ellen Schmier, a resident of Michigan (both individually and in her capacity as Custodian of Kate Schmier's shares of stock in the Acquired Companies), Ronald Schmier, a resident of Michigan, Denise Levy, a resident of Illinois, and Dana Ishbia, a resident of Michigan, the stockholders of the Acquired Companies. These stockholders are collectively referred to hereinafter as the "Stockholders."

Rubin also appears to be a philanthropist, and donates money to several local Jewish charities in the Michigan area.

Sadeh, Daniel D . Tarzana, CA 91356
Sadeh, Daniel and Mirit Arazi . Tarzana, CA 91356

Daniel Sadeh is a Scientologist with an OS page, but he is not one of Reed’s more supportive investors, according to this story:

"We were so frightened. We thought, 'That's it, he's not going to [invest for us] anymore,' " said Daniel Sadeh, 29, a Tarzana furniture restorer who said he had invested $400,000 with Slatkin beginning in 1997. Sadeh said he met Slatkin through friends who had invested with the Santa Barbara millionaire. Sadeh said Slatkin provided statements showing Sadeh's money had grown to "more than $500,000."
Sadeh said he initially was relieved when Slatkin failed to follow through on his letter by returning Sadeh's money. Now, Sadeh said he wishes Slatkin had. Given Slatkin's bankruptcy filing and the fraud accusations against him, Sadeh said he is concerned he will never see any of his money.

EBS Management Plc
Durrant House

PAN reported to Opra under section 48(4) Pensions Act 1995 that the investment manager had received instructions from the trustees’ secretary and adviser, EBS Management plc (EBS) to prepare to release £500,000 of the pension scheme money in a management buyout of one of the employer companies - Geebro Ltd. (Geebro).
PAN had not been consulted as to this proposed transaction. EBS had asked the investment manager not to mention it to any of the trustees’ advisers or any of the trustees individually. Two of Geebro’s directors were trustees of the scheme and declared an interest when the trustees discussed the proposed investment in Geebro on 5 March 1998. At the time Geebro had a very poor credit rating according to a credit-checking agency report obtained by Opra.

Roger Sanders may also have been appointed as a member of this Small Business Advisory Panel.

Savoy Ltd Guernsey . Leetonia, OH 44431
This address resolves to Scientologists Gerhard and Peggy Haag! Yes, the Robotic Parking king!

From WISE lists passim, including 2001:

Robotic Parking
Gerhard Haag
280 Walnut St.
Leetonia, OH 44431-1048
United States
(1) 330-427-6233

Here is the fabulous Robotic Parking website:

Notice that not only Gerhard, but the lovely Peggy Guignon, who was an early investor in Digital Lightwave, is present on the board of directors. She is, in fact, Gerhard’s wife, which might explain why his former wife, Sabine, has been removed from the Patron list. Peggy and Gerhard are both Patrons of the IAS, and Key Contributors to the Super Power Building.
According to this post to alt.religion.scientology, which includes several excerpts from newspaper stories, Gerhard Haag left Germany partly due to accusations of unethical business practices.

His robotic parking business venture was profiled recently in the St. Petersburg Times:

Robotic Parking’s automated garage concept promises to pack in twice as many cars as a standard parking garage, plus cut down on pollution, energy use, labor costs and frustration for drivers trolling endlessly for an open space. But critics argue the company has tried before but hasn’t been able to reach its Jetsons-like goal. (…)
Haag, a German-born, 6-foot-4 tower of sinew and muscle, insists he's about to turn part of the ramshackle factory where Checkers once built its drive-through burger stands into a totally automated garage. And he says he has raised about $7-million from investors, plus thousands more in state and local tax incentives, to help him do it.
There's just one problem: Haag has made the same promise before. A prototype he built in tiny Leetonia, Ohio, drew scores of visitors but has since been called a sham by critics. A 324-car garage his company, Robotic Parking Inc., helped build for congested Hoboken, N.J., is almost two years overdue and mired in litigation. "We paid them $3-million, and we have a building that's empty," said Donald Pellicano, chairman of the Hoboken Parking Authority.

Ord. #6132-97 passed 1st reading.

The Coachman Building is deep in the heart of the Scientology real estate empire in Clearwater, and according to this Scientology web page, houses the Church’s “training center” in that city. It appears that Haag’s company was acting as an authorized representative of the Church in its negotiations with the city council.

Credicorp Inc. seems to be a debt consolidation/loan company, according to its webpage. It is not the Credicorp credit card company operating out of Texas (which has been investigated for fraud and is the subject of numerous scathing online consumer reports).

Here is a Jeffrey B. Schwartz with a Chicago investment firm:
COMFORT ZONE. Putting every penny of your 401(k) money into large-cap stocks tempts a lot of people. The company names are reassuringly familiar, and the returns have been excellent in recent years. ''Every adviser I talk to has trouble getting people into things like small-cap and foreign,'' says Jeffrey B. Schwartz, senior consultant for Chicago-based Ibbotson Associates, which provides investment software and consulting. No wonder: For the 12 months ended Nov. 30, the total return on the Standard & Poor's 500-stock index was 23.7%, vs. 16.8% for a Morgan Stanley Dean Witter index of developed-economy stocks, -11.1% for an Ibbotson index of small stocks, and a lousy -19.7% on an International Finance Corp. emerging-markets composite index (table).

Misha Segal is a Scientologist musician of some note, and has his own webpage.

He is listed in this Scientologist Who’s Who as well. .

He is quoted on this Church of Scientology webpage praising L. Ron Hubbard’s music.

One does wonder whether anyone who could, with a straight face, say:
"L. Ron Hubbard’s music is the best thing that’s ever happened and a joy to be a part of” doesn’t deserve what they get.

Serrano, Felicidad . Clearwater, FL 33765
Felicidad Serrano Barrera is a Patron Meritorious with Honours, and has an OS page (in Spanish).

I have been in Scientology since 1973. In 1984 at the age of 34 I decided to go to law school. I knew it would be very difficult to do but it was a goal of mine since I was a child.
Due to the training I received applying L. Ron Hubbard's study technology, I was confident I could attain this goal. I chose the only 2 year American & California Bar Approved & Accredited Law School in the United States. I attended South Western University School of Law and graduated in 1986. I successfully passed the California Bar in 1987 and have been a participating attorney in Glendale, California since that time. Without L. Ron Hubbard's study technology I could never have gotten through Law school or passed the California Bar. I had graduated from college 12 years earlier but I was a very poor student.

Stern, Michael S . Vineland, NJ 8362
Michael S. Stern could be the corporate counsel of Long Island-based Dial Inc., as quoted in this Newsday article :

Michael S. Stern, Dial's corporate counsel, said: "The real value of this company will be realized when it has expanded more thoroughly. Then it would make sense to consider a public offering." Dial might sell stock to the public within five years, he said.

There is also a screenwriter of the same name who has worked on Angel and the X-Files, among other shows.

He could possibly be the “friend” mentioned in this alumni report:

Joseph R. Bezzone (BBA '87) has opened an Italian trattoria, Due Amici ("two friends" in Italian) in West Orange, New Jersey, with business partner and college friend Michael Stern, who graduated GW in 1986.

The extremely annoying New Jersey corporate database gives me these possibilities for Michael S. Stern:
Stern Construction LLC
Stern Development #4 LLC
Stern Construction at Autumn Ridge. Inc.
And the elusive:
Perhaps further New Jersey investigations will shed some light on Mr. Stern.

Sturgill, Ben C . Glendale, CA 91209
Curtis Ben Sturgill, a Scientologist, is an architect in Glendale, California. He grew up in Michigan, according to the bio on the firm's website:

"Mr. Sturgill is a licensed architect in the State of California and has been with the firm since 1984. He attended Ferris State University in Michigan. He has extensive experience in all aspects of architecture including design, project management and construction coordination. He has an excellent rapport with city officials throughout Southern California."
The firm is listed in the Theta Directory.

Curt also has an OS page, where he explains how his Scientology training helps him to deal with city officials:

"I am an architect and I use my Scientology training all the time. It is simply a part of my life, a major part. Since I've been on Scientology courses my life has gone right with a capital R. Confronting and keeping in communication with city officials is key in my line of work and my Scientology training has been invaluable in this. Before I would sometimes get into useless arguments with officials which went nowhere - not any more! I get my point accross and I get my product. It's so simple."

Sudalnik, Robert A & Suzanna . Portland, OR 97229
Both Suzanna and Robert are Scientologists from Clearwater, and Patrons of the IAS.
Robert’s OS page says that he is a computer professional, while Suzanna brought study tech to the public school system:

“I have been a teacher my whole life. I graduated from UCLA as a Graduate Fellow in Education and Administration, and my first position within the LA Unified School District involved teaching a bilingual class of children; half of the children spoke only English, the other half only Spanish. My job was to make all the children comfortable in both languages. No mean task. How did I do this? I used materials provided by the school district, but also applied to the teaching of these materials the L Ron Hubbard method of study, including the "Three Barriers to Study". Using Mr. Hubbard's study technology, my class became truly bilingual in half the time normally allotted for this. I have used Mr. Hubbard's educational technology to teach every subject to every child, every teenager, every adult, and I can unequivocally say that it works!”

Robert Sudalnik is apparently also on the Clearwater Beautification Committee:
“Commissioner Clark moved to appoint Robert Sudalnik. The motion was duly seconded and carried unanimously.”

He also wrote one of the many Scn letters to the St. Petersburg Times praising city manager Mike Roberto:

“The first wrong statement is that Scientology is strongly dependent on visitors to downtown Clearwater. That is totally untrue as our parishioners come from all over the world to receive religious counseling and training and it does not matter one bit what goes on in downtown Clearwater” -- Bob Sudalnik, Clearwater

Taussig, John E and Judith B . Hollywood, CA 90068
Both John and Judith are Scientologists.

John is former GO, and is quoted in Omar Garrison's book defending the GO:

"In another sworn statement, John Taussig, a member of the church's Gaurdian staff, reported that since May, 1974, he has on numerous occasions noticed curious acoustic phenomena while using the telephone lines of the legal office. He states that the most f requent and noticeable noises have been mysterious clicking sounds. He has also on several occasions experienced interruptions which clearly did not originate in his telephone or that of the party with whom he was conversing. He avers that other staff memb ers have complained to him or to other members of the legal department of similar experiences."

He *could* be an executive with TRW now and living in Irvine, CA, but that could be someone else.

Judy is also ex-GO and signed an incriminating document in the old days:

"In the so-called Zeus code Mr. Hubbard is Joko, his wife, Jigo; in a code called Amber he is Neon, and Mrs. Hubbard is Lily. A document with FBI number 7822, dated Nov. 5, 1976, and signed by Judy Taussig, a U.S. national official of Scientology, defined the correct use of the codes. They were to be used, the court learned, for "groups or actions that we don't want connected to LRH or MSH. This is handled by coding their names. Also coding the group or action if it falls into categories #1 - #8 listed here."

That list included incriminating activities, "unpublished crimes," and "things like lobbying where this is prohibited in non-profit corporations, or money deals that might provoke government tax offices."

I got into Scientology because I wanted to improve my golf game. I went from a 36 handicap to an 8. No, not really - the real reason was that I was getting divorced and was total effect of the whole thing. I didn't think I could do anything. Well, it completely helped me to be at cause over the whole scene and to believe in myself and now I'm winning in life happily. And it really did help my golf game too!

Thornell, Kent . Sedona, AZ 86339
Kent Thornell lives in Carmel Valley, California. There is no indication that he is a Scientologist.

If he is the same Kent Thornell who made this post to an offshore message board, this is not the first time he's had trouble with bad investments:

"I also have a sizeable investment with TAC, Here is their address and phone numbers. the fax number is now disconnected and there is no answer at the phone number. If anyone has any information on this company, please email me …"

Tinney, Lon D . Santa Monica, CA 90405
Lon Tinney and fellow Slatkin investor Janet Weiland are mentioned in a Los Angeles Times society article on the fund-raiser for a non-profit law center.

"Bet Tzedek, the nonprofit law center that provides free legal aid to economically disadvantaged people in Los Angeles, staged its fourth annual blowout fund-raiser, the Justice Ball, at Santa Monica's Museum of Flying on Saturday. The evening raised more than half a million dollars, according to co- chairmen Rafael Fogel and Randall Kaplan.

"We hung out for a while with some newfound friends, many of whom were in clear violation of the 'under 35' theme, including Janet Weiland, vice president of the Church of Scientology, and Lon Tinney, a film special-effects expert who worked on the original 'Star Wars.'"

It is fairly likely that Lon is a Scientologist, as his wife, Gloria, has an OS page .

Turner Alvet, Peter & Nancy . Los Angeles, CA 90065
A former Guardian’s Office staffer in the Information Bureau, longtime Scientologist Peeter Alvet was one of Michael Meisner’s guards during the time he spent under confinement by wary GO agents who suspected he was planning to turn state’s evidence. (He eventually escaped, and did so.)
From the Stipulation of Evidence in the Snow White case:

“On May 1, at approximately 6 p.m., Brian Andrus, Peeter Alvet, Information Bureau official Chuck Reese and two bodyguards visited Mr. Meisner and told him that he was to be moved to another apartment. Mr. Meisner refused to leave, threatening to cause a commotion if forced to do so. The two guards handcuffed him behind his back, gagged him and dragged him out of the building. Outside, they forced him onto the back floor of a waiting car. In the car one of the guards held Mr. Meisner down with his feet.”

Today, Peter and Nancy are both artists, and own the Alvet-Turner Fine Art Studios in Southern California. The Turner-Alvet Studios are listed in the Theta Directory:

"One of Dr. Ulan's proudest achievements has come out of more than 25 years which he devoted to study and work in the field of drug-free approaches to physical & psychosomatic illness. He became sickened by the atrocities he discovered as "routine treatments" in the mental health field, including physically damaging electric shocks, extremely addictive and harmful psychiatric/pharmaceutical drugs, frequent sexual violations of children and adult patients alike, as well as extensive insurance fraud. In 1986, aided by Rev. Heber Jentszch, President of the Church of Scientology International, he spearheaded the establishment of an international network of volunteer organizations to help clean up field of mental healing. This formidable psychiatric watch-dog group, CCHR, (Citizens Commission on Human Rights), now has over 300 chapters world-wide. CCHR has brought about major reforms in the field of mental health field through numerous criminal investigations and public campaigns which has resulted in many favorable changes in the mental health laws in many countries and states, thus helping to usher in an era of greater safety in this field. Dr. Ulan can be reached at the Natural Health Improvement Center, LLC, 15 West Notre Dame Street, Glens Falls, New York, 12801. Phone: (518) 792-5772; Fax: (518) 792-7310. E-mail: nhic@capital.net."

He highly recommends various vitamins for their curative properties, and contributed cases to a booklet: "Patients Speak About Nutritional Therapy."

He has an OS page.

In 1976, he was a GO officer involved in handling CoS' entree into Clearwater:

"A press release quoting church spokesman Fred Ulan says the Scientologists will give Clearwater city commissioners "a written guarantee" that the church will not hold the officials legally responsible "for any libel or slander uttered by Bob Snyder in his forthcoming lecture entitled 'The True Story of the Fort Harrison'."

Not only was Ulan involved in the takeover of Clearwater, according to the affidavit of his ex-wife, Ginger Ross Breggin, now married to prominent anti-psychiatry (yet apparently non-Scientologist) writer Peter Breggin, he was involved with the GO defense:

"At the time I was married to Freddie Ulan (1976-1983). He was head of the Safe Environment Fund and was fundraising for the defense of Mary Sue and other indicted Scientologists. After leaving staff I made a genuine year-long attempt to salvage the marriage but it was beyond saving and we separated in 1982 at which point I also left Scientology."

Breggin concludes her affidavit, which was highly critical of Scientology (she has also endorsed Steve Hassan's book concerning cult recovery issues), by stating:

"Immediately after our daughter was born, I decided not to return to staff. My husband, Fred Ulan, left when she was less than two weeks old and went to Flag for more upper level auditing (maybe the Ls). I was a new mother, cut off from all my friends and any support network. My infant began crying one night and did not stop. She cried for over three hours. After trying everything I was horrified to discover that I was thinking about dropping her off my second story balcony. I quickly and gently laid her in her crib, and called my sister-in-law who came over and helped me for a couple of hours. I felt like I was going crazy and became convinced that I needed some auditing to address the horrendous impulse I had had and went to the service bureau at USGO. I was placed in lower conditions due to having declared I was not returning to staff, and had to work through conditions and return to staff prior to receiving any auditing. During this time my husband, away at Flag, was refusing to speak to me and providing no emotional support, because of my lower condition and the fact that it could risk his auditing."

Ulan introduced Arte Maren, GO felon, to the crowd in CW:

"But five days later, the public was invited to an open house at the Fort Harrison. About 500 people showed up and they found the old hotel looking better, cleaner. Rev. Fred Ulan, flashing a big smile, greeted everyone and spoke of a week of "ups and downs." He introduced Maren and, pointing at his head, said: "See, no horns."

From another article:
"In June, Fred Ulan, an assistant public relations official for the church, reported to public relations director Artie Maren that not enough was being done to silence Snyder. To make up for this shortcoming, he said, FREEDOM, a Scientology publication, was preparing an article "tying Snyder in with Interpol as he has stated he supports them, and using the one-world rule button which Snyder hits us with saying Snyder now supports Interpol which supports one world rule by its very nature."

Not surprisingly, Ulan's clinic is a WISE business.

A woman of the same name also acted as a spokesperson for the Cape Nature Conservation in this case involving illegal tortoise exports.

She also seems to have worked as parliamentary counsellor to President Mbeki:

There is no indication that she is a Scientologist; she does seem to be linked somehow to the Azeez family, based on one of the addresses given.

Jon Von Gunten has an OS page.

He was a TNX member, and was also involved in sending out email encouraging Scns to go see the John Travolta bomb Battlefield Earth on its opening weekend.

In addition to VGIS/GRID Systems, Jon also handles Publicity and Public relations for hightechbiz.com:

"Jon von Gunten Publicity and Public Relations Mr. Von Gunten is a skilled journalist, writer, and publicist specializing in high technology and business to business communications. Because of his journalistic leanings he has an extraordinary skill in booking great press coverage. Editors love him too because he can do most of the work and write it in a fashion that is compatible with their style and editorial needs.

"We've worked with too many PR teams that really don't understand what is needed and waste a lot of time and resources. Jon is one of two out of hundreds that meets and exceeds our demands. Clients love him" Jack Potter Senior Marketing Analyst"

Other Scientologists are involved in this venture, including attorney Steven L. Hayes, the infamous Scn attorney who purchased the name and property of old, real CAN after driving them into bankruptcy in order to set up the new, Scn front Cult Awareness Network. Steve Hayes, unashamed of his activities, also has an OS page.

Jon von Gunten wrote to complain about the way a group of Catholics discussed Scn:

"A recent HLI press release inaccurately characterized my church, the Church of Scientology. Our moral code is freely available at http://www.thewaytohappiness.org/html/twth/how.htm We Scientologists believe in an infinite God, the sanctity of life, a monogamous family, no drugs, hard work, unimpeachable fair play, and delivering what you promise (or more) in business. You have all noticed how drugs, dishonesty, criminality and illiteracy are strangling once-vital nations. Scientology reaches out with highly effective anti-drug efforts on six continents, criminal rehabilitation groups in prisons, inner-city literacy projects, and volunteer ministers when disasters strike. Earth's religions must form inter-religious alliances against the forces of chaos. United we stand... Jon von Gunten 2000-06-13"

He also wrote to the New Times LA to attack old CAN () and to the LA Times to talk about Scn beach-cleaning

GRID Systems was apparently involved with QuickSell Commerce, perhaps in a PR context. He was a 1961 graduate of Antilles High School.

Jon Van Gunten is quite the OSA public it seems, he was involved with SPL, or the Scientology Parishioners League:

"Defend your religion in the media. Have your spiritual beliefs been slurred by mass media?

Walker Adam Wicks Glendale, CA 91207
Walker, Adam W . Glendale, CA 91207

Son of Douglas Wicks Walker and childhood friend and erstwhile business partner of Sky Dayton.

From an article on Sky Dayton and Earthlink:

A practicing Scientologist, Dayton graduated at age 16 from the Delphian Academy, a Scientology-affiliated boarding school in Sheridan, Ore. But ambition moved him to choose entrepreneurship over college. His first venture was a money-losing coffeehouse named Cafe Mocha, located on trendy Melrose Avenue in L.A. Dayton's next business was a graphic design shop, started with long-time friend Adam Walker.

The article continues:

To fund the venture, Dayton talked to anyone who would listen, eventually hooking up with two Scientologists who would become his first angel investors. He raised $100,000 by selling a 40 percent stake to Kevin O'Donnell - the father of a school friend and founder of Government Technology Services Inc., a Chantilly, Va., computer reseller - and Reed Slatkin, a Santa Barbara, Calif., stock trader, financial manager and long-time friend of Walker's family.

Dear Editor:
Barbara J. Kowlowitz, DC, has courteously sent me a copy of her August 7, 1990 letter to you. If you decide to print this letter, would you add the following postscripts? I would appreciate it very much.
Postscript: It sometimes happens that Sterling's clients do come up with successful marketing ideas. Of course, our consultants encourage such activities. About the $500 given by Dr. Kowlowitz's partner to the Church of Scientology, that's a personal matter between him and the church. Although Sterling may have recommended personal counseling, it would not have been involved in the actual transaction.

Zaplin, Mark Santa Fe, NM 87501
Zaplin, Mark Wm Synnamon - Century Bank Santa Fe, NM 87504
This is Mark *Zaplin*, erstwhile art partner of the infamous Ron Rakow!

Zaplin runs the Zaplin Lampert Gallery, which "exhibits Classic Western art, including nineteenth- and early twentieth-century American paintings, drawings and prints by Santa Fe artsits and Taos artists, and works by the Early Modernists. The Gallery features a fine collection of traditional Mexican furniture, New Mexican furniture, and other New Mexican art. There are also works of historic photography and contemporary American art from a select group of artists on display."

The website tells the gallery's story:

"Partners Mark Zaplin and Richard Lampert grew up together in Massachusetts. In 1972, in the basement of a Boston bookstore, they discovered a large trove of Edward S. Curtis photographs and plates of the American Indian, a project to which the photographer devoted 30 years of his life. The find led Mark and Richard to the West, and to their careers as dealers in fine art."

Zaplin was involved in a co-ownership deal with Rakow and Denise Del Bianco of a Georgia O'Keefe painting which led to a lawsuit by him against Rakow and DelBianco. Both Rakow and Del Bianco are Slatkin investors, along with numerous other members of the Rakow family. Rakow's prior fraud convictions have raised questions about his involvement with the Reed Slatkin investment enterprise.

As it turns out, Zaplin’s relationship with Rakow may have started before their cooperative art ventures: according to the New Mexico corporate database, Zaplin was involved in the creation of “Standard Activator Corporation,” which, according to the record, was “TO BUY SELL, AND TRADE LACTIC BACILLIS CULTURES.”
