(Councilman Jerry Donald, explaining why Trout Run is not really unique at all.)

Last week, a prominent local citizen of Frederick County, Maryland, assured one of our best sources that a majority on the county council had been convinced to vote no to putting a property known as Trout Run on the county's list of historic places, which would have allowed the property's owner, the Church of Scientology, to put a drug rehab clinic on it.

Weeks of negative press about the matter, as well as the efforts of many longtime opponents to Scientology's drug rehab network, Narconon, had had its effect, and our source was assured that at least four council members had decided to vote against adding the property to the county's historic list. "Maybe 5-2," the person said, and added that even a vote of 6-1 was possible.
