"On Canada affiliate indepth radio news talk ten ten and David god's word is with us the author of the sun sand and sea serpents David I was so half joking that the other cryptozoologist may not be too pleased listen to this discussion but let me let me ask you in in all seriousness are there sightings of sea creatures lake monsters that you've documented in the southeast or maybe just in Florida that you think have some credibility yes and not just because I'm afraid for my life if you get rid of all of the distractions the clear water three toed the giant octopus in Saint Augustine misidentified manatees accept or accept her eccentric what you seem to have is a consistent creature described in the ocean not in the rivers not enough although possibly in the shallows off the coast that is between fifty and a hundred feet long swims serpentine has a head described as being turned a light and it's everywhere it's in the Gulf it's in the Caribbean it's off the coast of Florida all the way up into the Carolinas and what makes this one interesting is I'm working on the second book in this series which will cover the rest of the east coast and it's also appearing up north the Gloucester sea monster very famous one from New England that that that monster's weak it's mine wait it's not wicked big but it fits this archetype now what makes this art is that any biologist worked there sol is going to tell you that a warm water creature is not going to live in the cold water as well and yet it almost looks like there's an uninterrupted line of these fifty to a hundred foot long dark colored serpens now whether they are Serb prince or whether they are deals that much I don't know yet but when you get rid of all the other stuff those I can't explain you mentioned the the clear water three told monster yeah eight eight classic if I might add right and it has been described also as a giant penguin yes so well so what call penguin a twelve foot tall alright so walk us through this legend you don't get those taxi those off the rack we Clearwater Florida it's right next to Dunedin by the way I want to give you points for pronouncing it correctly the form with your Blue Jays yes for some reason it down here is they often call it done it in but Clearwater nineteen forty eight somebody called the police and says that they were he was sitting on the beach with his girlfriend and some large sea creature came out the police jotted down a note and did nothing two days later people walking on the beach early morning see these giant foot prints are tracks coming out of the water they continue along the beach for several hundred feet and then go back into the water it's three toed bipedal fourteen inches wide fifteen inches long and the centre tell is longer than the outside to and that was all they saw now the problem with this story is that the police immediately thought it was a hoax and they pretty much know who it was right off the bat because there was a professional joker in town the clear water sun wanted nothing to do with this story here before had been the tail end of a red tide outbreak that had pretty much destroyed the economy of the whole Gulf coast Clearwater Dunedin tarpon springs all up and down red tide that's like an algae bloom is it that's a that's an algae bloom that is toxic to fish and people and when it comes ashore the fumes are very nasty so much so that down the line and clear water had to shut down the school because if they were too close to the water tarpon springs lost the entire sponge industry for that year so the Clearwater son is sitting there going we don't need a sea monster right now thank you very much so they they really downplayed it so naturally the Miami Herald in the Tampa Bay paper ran with it and something came out of the water again that night now the newspapers are starting to pick up on it and I Illinois a guy named Earl Hey and I know that many because I dated this somebody's who's sister with that name so it's sort of his love names that stick in your head for bad reasons he was out fishing he says he saw something in the grass black which are shallow water with Friday only enough grass growing in them that it was hideous looking as if the description he is but it sounds very much like what he's describing is a Manistee grazing in the grass flats which is what manatees do but traffic to the beach started to increase so suddenly the newspapers going well we may have to do something about this and they're they're all running theories out there the sun had one berry he that it was alcohol abuse another one said it was did the the dinosaur from alley oop an inside joke because the alley oop comic strip artist with a Snowbird in Clearwater makes sense all right it's the little things I love if they just had no idea what the heck it was so finally the police say you know what will will keep keep a closer watch on the beach so the next sighting is actually up the shoreline in Indian rocks beach so naturally of course different set of police no way that that it was any good it's almost as if somebody knew M. the Indian rocks beach report was called in by a fellow named John Moore which again is one of these clues that the police knew they were dealing with X. prankster already because John Moore was the name of the ghosts that walk to Indian beach at night so it they're going back and forth in the papers one fellow says he has seen similar footprints down around Marlow castle in Haryana which it turns out he was talking about giants three toed sloth which possibly could have still been alive at that point but so now all of a sudden we've got something walking on the beach with three titles that may or may not be a sloth may or may not be a dinosaur may or may not be alley oops best friend and it just it goes on back and forth N. as they realize that it's bringing in Torres they start being reports that are never verified a local butcher claims that the foot prints were all over one of the islands out in the bay which of course nobody could get to it those days and it just keeps building up a couple of flyers at a local flying school SAAF something off shore and they landed they got the owner of a restaurant the owner of the flying school would get on the plane and they flew over the creature again two or three times shape of a log ten to fifteen feet long Howard in black for clippers Honda I can't P. again what makes that one all right is that three of these four guys had been living in far enough long enough to know what a million if you looked like but all four of them just happen to have it in a vested interest in making sure the tourism and included some couples her are they there no firs items there's no for an amenity is well from a distance and amenity is so slow moving they actually collect algae and moss okay make cell from the keeping in mind an airplane can fly anywhere within five hundred feet makes sense all right so they should have known amenity when I saw one in all the occupants of this plane have a vested interest in in tourist dollars no doubt yeah one owns a restaurant on the beach one owns the flying school which is also a charter service one owns the service center that maintains the planes so yes there's a little bit of a vested interest there all right so the the punch line here the the police know who this jokester is and and who is it I can't prove it because they can't catch him what we're gets where it gets kind of complicated is the next set of foot prints show up in October of forty eight but it's not in Clearwater it's about a hundred and ten miles up the coast and thirty five miles up river in the so one the river and there they are along the side of the shore and by sheer dumb luck in this I actually think was dumb luck the owner of the property was a fellow named the marks Cheney who owns the hotel who owns the restaurant who won't be gift shop who owned the shoreline it was a retired Hollywood publicity guy and he made some phone calls and coming down from New York are too well known naturalist one of them being Ivan Sanderson either use again in various again he's everywhere that the other fellow came with them was John Riley who is actually a bigger name in those days Gianna Reilly showed up I looked around flew back two days later he wrote an article said it's a hoax just like the locals think Sanderson didn't seem to be convinced at that point but he also met a local guy named al Williams who had flown up from Clearwater to see the footprints because he was so interested in them and I've been sent by this point it seems to be the only one taking them seriously he goes back to New York and does his radio show and there's an article the New York Herald says Sanderson says they're a hoax so you've got Sam this is saying is forty eight point blank they are a hoax and that was really the end of it until he goes back to his office who finds this stack of correspondence some witnesses who had seen the months there and suddenly he's not he's publishing little articles that say well it's a monster it's three code we don't know what it is it might be a dinosaur nineteen fifty one he saying it's a dinosaur in a magazine article and he's reevaluating it in they are delicious it may be a giant penguin and he says that starts saying that the hope and the reports from the Antarctic of a short next month's there without staring eyes there's an undiscovered colony of giant penguins in the Antarctic and one of them happened to land in Clearwater does he actually believe these creatures were ten twelve feet tall well there's kind of a problem he's saying it.

Scientologists buy dozens of properties in Clearwater, Florida
"Clearwater Florida there's been a quiet series of land purchases over the last three years a hundred and three million dollars worth made by the church of Scientology and its pressures a doubling of the church's footprint near its international headquarters that's the findings of a story in the Tampa Bay times it's headlined clear takeover trees McManus is a Scientology reporter for the paper she joins us now welcome hi Lou thank you for having us explain to me why the the paper hasn't Scientology reporter I mean how big is the church of Scientology where you are yeah that's a good question I think it's comparable to save it's kind of like if there were to be about again reporter in Vatican City we believe it's important to shed light on a powerful institution that's very controversial and plays a big role in our community so tell me about these land purchases can you give me a sense of the scale and how they we have have made this happen with the relatively little fanfare over the years it kind of started in early twenty seventeen we reported at that time that a handful of limited liability companies bought about six downtown properties and Scientology leader David Miscavige had presented a retail plan to to city staff officials and he was going to build an entertainment complex with Tom Cruise and he was going to recruit high and retail to some of the empty store fronts because downtown clear waters pretty depressed so we kept our eye on the downtown purchases once we dug into the data and pulled records we found that LLC is tied to the church of Scientology had bought about one hundred properties and the properties cover about one hundred acres and it's all surrounding the city's downtown waterfront who they buying from and how and how much are they offering brokers representing these companies were approaching downtown property owners many of the properties weren't listed for sale and our analysis found that these church officials were offering two three four times what the property appraiser said the properties were valued so clearly they wanted these properties a great deal why does this matter well our reporting shows that Scientology has a big interest in preserving its downtown campus flag is what they call it and it's the international spiritual headquarters of the church and it's also basically that financial nucleus of the entire organization there's prisoners that come here from all over the world to take courses in high level auditing that's not offered anywhere else the other side of that is flight is run by the sea org Scientology's full time work force these workers signed billion year contracts are paid very little work around the clock and Scientology has an interest in keeping that insulated according to former executives that we've interviewed what you mean billion year contracts the reason Scientology has such an outsized influence is because of the the cash and assets it has which is estimated to be three billion dollars part of the reason for that is because they have this sea org that works full time and is paid less than fifty dollars a week they keep their operations it's the type of servitude yes exactly and I guess the larger concern is that this could really thwart the city's plans for redevelopment if the Scientologists organizations are are going to have all this property that they're gonna keep for their own purposes right because the city officials have said that there's only so many factors they control one of the factors they do control is the waterfront land that's protected by city charter that they are in the middle of a sixty four million dollar plan right now to re design and develop into a park with gardens and a concert venue businesses might see this city project and say yeah let me take a chance on downtown and open up a business but now these LLC's tied to Scientology control the retail district they have control over what businesses of any come in what is the view of the local community I mean do they view it as helpful for the community at large to have a major religious organizations centered in their town or not you know Lou I spit from my reporting I've learned that there's a lot of mistrust and suspicion still in the community when it comes to Scientology because a lot of the residents here were living in the city one Scientology arrived in the seventies and they remember the tactics Scientology use just out of curiosity when you see the tactics that they use in the seventies what what were those Scientology arrive in downtown Clearwater nineteen seventy five they came in under a fake name to buy the fort Harrison hotel a historic hotel right in the center of downtown and the mayor at the time gave stars really raise the alarm he demanded to see their financials our board of directors he publicly asked why they were security cards with Billy clubs and mace on the roof and in nineteen seventy seven the FBI raided Scientology's had orders in LA in DC and then covered hundreds of thousands of memos and documents and inside those findings was a plan that Scientology operatives had had created and written to establish area control and the tactics they were using to establish Kerry control included infiltration spying smearing and a means it was a very turbulent time so the fact that the church is now buying up these properties through proxy organizations would maybe bring some alarm bells for the community because of what what has happened in the past yeah I think that the key here is the uncertainty we don't know what they're planning to do with the property is a lot of them are vacant lots vacant buildings empty storefronts we don't know if they're just going to continue to squat on them because they haven't done anything yet they haven't submitted redevelopment plans they haven't started construction or are they going to redevelop them and bring businesses and and contribute to a vibrant downtown
