Tactics Anger Drug Center's Foes in Newkirk - 1989-10-15
Tactics used by a California firm wanting to operate a drug treatment center near here to soothe local opposition aren't the kind taught in a Dale Carnegie course, some center opponents say. Instead, many local residents describe the action by the parent firm of Narconon Chilocco New Life Center as either insulting or intimidating. Behavior of a private investigator hired by a lawyer representing Narconon International and the Church of Scientology, a religion some consider a cult, has been described as rude by people he visited during a two-week visit here. Eugene M. Ingram left town after residents complained to authorities he carried a gun during some of his visits.
