Thanks for reposting, ethercat.  The article was first published in the inFormer Newsletter back in 1991.  I believe Ken Rose is now in China doing traditional healing.  I think he wrote a couple of books about it.  This is him, I think:  -  Be well, Dennis

Just came across his fascinating article here. I did a search 4 years later and it appears that the Ken Rose you referenced as being in China is now back and working in the USA with his wife Jessica. Mendocino, CA to be exact.  They work at The Stanford Inn's Mendocino Center for Living Well

Here are the current search results, which include many of yours.

Can anyone confirm that this is Ken Rose?

Damn, this is scarry! Cannot really confirm but I'm pretty sure i've seen him before somewhere.
Mary has written a fine update on the Stacy Murphy negligence and wrongful case that has now settled. These cases do take a toll on the families and the Murphy and White families have endured this one for 5 long years.

Confirmation of the 2009 FBI trafficking probe of Scientology that the church denied - The Underground Bunker - Tony Ortega

Melissa Cronin over at RadarOnline dropped a bomb this morning that she let us in on recently: The FBI had complied with her request for documents related to its 2009/2010 human trafficking investigation of the Church of Scientology.

She tells us that she received a 300-page file pursuant to her request, and she posted a few of the initial pages this morning just to show finally that yes, this investigation did occur, even though the church lied repeatedly, saying that it did not.[/quote

Tony Ortega provides an important update.

Notorious Tennessee Scientology facility shut down when patients found held against their will - The Underground Bunker - Tony Ortega

We’ve written several articles about a highly questionable mental-health facility that was run by Scientologists in rural Tennessee, and now, the local newspaper in Cannon County there reports that operator Marc Vallieres was charged with two felony counts of facilitation of kidnapping after patients were found being held there against their will. The Cannon Courier also reports that the sheriff has announced that the facilities have been shut down.

We just confirmed with the Cannon County Circuit Court clerk that the Courier story is correct. The clerk told us Vallieres entered a diversion program and was sentenced to state probation for two years. Two other employees, initially charged with false imprisonment, pled to misdemeanors.

“The Cannon County Sheriff’s Department would like to make the general public of this county aware that the Scientology facilities are closed and not operating in Cannon County,” the sheriff stated.

You won't get any argument from me, Big Beard. I modified the paragraph as follows:

"Applied Scholastics Incorporated is ostensibly a completely separate organization from the Church of Scientology. It is a separately incorporated body with its world headquarters at 7060 Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, California—as much as my liver is separately incorporated within my abdomen."
As has been pointed out before, Applied Scholastics claim to be 'totally seperate' from $cientology is a lie. They obtained their 501(c)3 status, and were assigned Group Exemption Number 4171, as part of the 1993 Closing Agreement between the IRS and $cientology. If they're going to claim being completely seperate, they need to turn in the GEN, and every Applied Scholastics operation apply for tax exempt status individually.

From the Closing Agreement:

The social benefit and other public benefit entities discussed at pages 1-28 through 1-42 of the June submission along with all subsidiaries, subordinate chapters, subordinate organizations, or sublicensees thereof (e.g., organizations that are permitted to use particular names, copyrights, service marks, and/or technologies) are Scientology-related entities.

 Thus, for example,
 Citizens Commission on Human Rights,
 National Commission on Law Enforcement and Social Justice,
 Scientology Defense Fund Trust,
 Association for the Better Living and Education,
 Applied Scholastics Incorporated,
 Narconon International,
 The Way to Happiness Foundation,
 and the Foundation for Religious Freedom are Scientology-related entities.
 Pages 1-28 through 1-42 are attached as Exhibit VIII-2 to this Agreement.


When the Manistee Planning Commission voted 5-0 on January 7, 2016 to grant a Special Use Permit to Per Wickstrom's TIA Corporation to use 900 Vine Street as a “location for recovery meetings” and “intensive outpatient services”, I'm betting it never imagined the site would become the new home of the Church of Scientology's education front, Applied Scholastics.

But it has, and it's not the only Wickstrom-related site in Michigan promoting L. Ron Hubbard's Study Tech.

And Wickstrom has designs on other Michigan locations and in South Bend, Indiana.
