Denver Post article snippets......

The building at 2300-2346 Blake Street had listed for $14 million when it went on the market in 2008.
(John Leyba, The Denver Post)


snippet....
The Church of Scientology has paid $8.5 million in cash for a building in the Ballpark neighborhood formerly occupied by McClain Finlon Advertising.

Over the past five years, the Los Angeles-based church had considered numerous Denver locations, including the Colorado National Bank Building at 17th and Champa streets that is now slated for a hotel.

It bought the 44,679-square-foot Ballpark building at 2300-2346 Blake Street on Thursday.

The building was listed for $14 million in 2008, following a banner year in commercial real estate, said Kittie Hook, a broker with Cassidy Turley/Fuller Real Estate who represented seller Cathey Finlon.

The property also includes a 90-vehicle parking lot that could be developed.

The church, which has had a presence in Denver since 1971, has 9,200 members here and has outgrown its current space, said Karin Pouw, spokeswoman for the church, which has locations in Englewood, Boulder and Aurora.

[...]

Finlon said she's pleased with the price, even though it's far less than the initial asking price. She paid $2.9 million for the property in 2000 and spent several million dollars renovating it.

....more in article link.....
9.200 members in the Denver area? hahahahaha yar riiight.

Somehow I don't think they'd be needing such a vast carpark: Google Maps Streetview - 2300-2346 Blake Street, Denver

I wonder if money previously dontated by alleged murderer and failed sucider, who is going to trial in February, was used in the purchase of this building. You know, the money he apparently extorted from his W.I.S.E. computer business and which caused non-scientologist employee/partner and murder victim Tony Ciancio to become suspicious and want out.

Is Finlon in the cult?

Tomorrow morning - Wednesday, January 5, 2011 - starting at 5:00 AM MST(-7GMT) on radio KHOW, Denver, Colorado USA, 630AM on your radio dial, Peter Boyles will be hosting a program on the Crutch of Scientology as a result of the Denver Post article on the Crutch's purchase their new building http://www.denverpost.com/business/ci_17003052.

During the Bob Penny, et al, attacks by the cult, Peter Boyles was a light in the dark about Scientology. He will be hosting a discussion about Scientology in general, and their purchase of the property near Coors Field (a baseball stadium for the Colorado Rockies team).

When he announced the purchase of the building by the cult, Boyles went off on Xenu, etc, likely as a challenge to the Denver Org of the cult. Several callers made disparaging remarks about the Crutch of Scientology, automatically becoming SP's, as if they cared!

Of course, as we all know, the Denver org, currently located in Lakewood, has nothing more than the few aged cultists. How this minor number of aged; and likely, financially destitute cultists, can pay off a multimillion dollar Idle Org, is anyone's guess. Let us not forget that Rex Fowler, Scientologist Premeditated Murderer, is a member of the Denver Org.

Anyway, one can access Peter Boyles talk radio show at http://www.khow.com/main.html. Select "Listen Live" on the top left of the page. This invokes I"heart"radio. The show starts at 5:00 am MST (-7GMT) and lasts until 9:00 AM MST (still-7GMT, go figure!).

Boyles is very opinionated about Scientology from his work with Bob Penney, and his tribulations with the cult. Boyles has stated that he will have several ex-Scientology experts, from very high on the Admin scale, as consultants.

One caveat: the KHOW stream might sound like it has been disconnected during commercial interruptions, probably from lack of KHOW's attention to the advertising on the stream. Let it continue for say 4-5 minutes. If the stream has not been restored, close the talk window and start over again.

One can call in to KHOW, and Peter Boyles, at (303) 713-8255 USA. Sorry, it is not a free call, and the wait time can be excessive. Turn off your radio prior to answering since there is an 8-10 second delay on radio versus real time.

Unfortunately, KHOW does not produce recordings of its broadcast streams. I will attempt to record the stream, but no promises!

Please check the drama at the door.

The Scilons would like nothing more than a schism between critics.

Scientology In Denver Now--Please call KHAW
by Tory Christman on Wednesday, January 5, 2011 at 12:17pm
(Originally posted on FB)

Good morning my friends :) It's a new day here in Burbank, and in Denver, CO also. Why Denver? Well, I was awakened to my friend from there calling me to tell me KHOW-630 am (Peter Boyles) radio is doing a call in re Scientology. You cannot get on, as they've flooded the lines, as they always do. If enough call...we may get through-or send an e-mail. They've built an 8.5 million dollar building there. Let them know why they should beware, please.

If you care, give it a try: (303)713-8255 (And thanks to my friend :alien:

Love to all :wink:
