I posted an update earlier tonight from work. There's been a change in my situation. The family has decided not to sell the condo so I no longer need to move. I will start refunding your money tomorrow. None of it has been touched. I deeply appreciate how quickly you came to my aid.
As many of you know I moved back to Clearwater, FL to work on my film and to try to make a difference in this city which has fascinated me ever since reading about Scientology's covert actions back in the 70's and 80's to gain control of the town.
I've been renting a condo across the street from Scientology's berthing complex, Hacienda Gardens. Buses filled with hundreds and hundreds of Sea Org members come and go constantly and I have coexisted with them peacefully while living here. Sure, there was the time Scientology tried to have me evicted shortly after moving in because my next door neighbor is a Scientologist. They alleged that I was breaking the old LMT injunction by living next to her. They sent threatening letters from their attorneys to the condo association and repeatedly harassed them by phone but the condo association supported me and said they were more than happy I was here.
I spoke about this at a Clearwater City Council Meeting.READ THE INJUNCTION
As a side note, the condo association president tells me there is a large chunk of hedge surrounding Hacienda Gardens right opposite my door that Scientology has allowed to overgrow to great heights. They used to trim it to be the same height as the rest of the hedge that rings their compex but for "some reason" it now reaches skyward.
I have been very happy here but the man who owned the condo died from a heart attack and the family has decided they want to sell the condo, so I must move with my video production setup to a new home. One place I know I won't be renting is an identical condo below me which would be ideal. I contacted the owner and was told someone beat me to it and their application was sitting with the condo association in the process of being approved so better luck next time. This came as quite a shock to folks within the condo association and the property management company who told me NO ONE has submitted an application to them for approval. It also turns out the the owner of that condo is a Scientologist...so there's that.
So I'm looking for a new place to live but with the medical problems involving my hospital stays a few months ago and the subsequent periods of absence from work, the move comes at a terrible time financially. I'm asking for some assistance for the costs involved. If you could help out, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much.
