    I took some pics. I'll see if I can find them and post here. I had thought at the time that it was a combination of a remodel...and new construction....but not sure.

    Pics are too big...will shrink them and post later.

    The premise that he's going to create an entertainment center for Scientologists seems unrealistic and farfetched - when does any parishioner at flag have any time for such frivolities as entertainment?

    Couldn't it be this - buy out your sources of antagonism, and close them down? It worked with Marty, why not a bar in Clearwater? Isn't that right out of Scientology's basic playbook?

    Type4_PTS and Leland like this.
