CLEARWATER - In the late "70s, about the time the Church of Scientology was fighting and trying to frame the Clearwater mayor, city commissioners and members of the press, some less-visible turmoil was bubbling beneath the surface at the Fort Harrison Hotel.

Guards stationed at the doors of Scientology's spiritual headquarters forcefully dissuaded malcontents from leaving, according to a book by a former Scientologist. In the hotel's basement, "suppressive" individuals - anyone who tried to escape was suppressive - were reportedly kept in conditions that visitors seldom if ever saw.

That was eight years ago. But Bent Corydon, a church member for almost 20 years and the author of L. Ron Hubbard: Messiah or Madman?, says little about Scientology has changed.
