Throughout the year I have been editing the 2013 Spiderweb for errors and events in the media. The site http://scientologycelebrity.wordpress.com/ has been especially interesting lately. They have a network of contacts (unlike me) with the rich and the high-ranking celebs, and report dissatisfaction and worsening relations with Miscavige.

To the Spiderweb on page 1, I added 1968 Colin Taufer, headmaster of Delphi Academy in Clearwater, his wife Mari O'Hara Taufer who teaches there, and some of the top staff at Delphi.

Colin married Mari as "Colin Guy Christensen" which is a mystery. Perhaps his parents weren't married and he switched from one parent's name to the other.
I looked for a connection to Quinn Taufer, born 1976 (might be a brother)and Jake Taufer (might be a son or nephew). Jake looks like he was born in the early 1990's, before Colin married Mari. Jake was in a join-the-Sea-Org flyer as a "telex officer," but Florida birth records aren't online, and Google, Ancestry, and familysearch.org searches for Jake turn up no further info of his relatives.

Anyone who knows this family, please speak up.

Kerri Kasem, born 1971, was on the national news as one of ailing DJ Casey Kasem's grown children battling their stepmother. Kerri says she's not interested in Casey's $80 million in assets, only in access to Casey himself. On May 12, 2014, Kerri was granted temporary conservatorship of her father, over the objections of her stepmother Jean.

I think Kerri is the only Scientologist in the family. Ex-Scientologist Message Board has a discussion of Kerri and Jim Meskimen almost getting their hooks into Josh Robert Thompson, "Geoff" the gay robot skeleton on Craig Ferguson's Late Late Show. The talented Josh quit Scientology.

Added Jesse Kove, born 1990, to 1971 Kerri Kasem's entry on page one. There are photos of them kissing enthusiastically. At age 43, Kerri isn't finding any suitable Scientology men her age, so way to go, Kerri, you're 19 years older than him!

Added 1963 Chui Hoi "Mike" Chan, fundraising speaker, his wife Sara Downey and brother John Chan.

Found maiden name of 1953 Carol Anne Masterson, agent and mother to Danny Masterson and his three actor siblings. It is Nicholson, from her Florida marriage to Joe Reaiche. It is striking how she and her four children never mention her maiden name in their IMDb or their Wikipedia pages. It makes one wonder if she is disconnected from her Nicholson relatives. If so, her children to remain loyal to her, must be disconnected from their grandparents.

Added 1949 Noelle North and her husband Michael Haywood Norris, who appeared as a Scientologist "Vanguard with Honors!" couple in today's Underground Bunker, http://tonyortega.org/2014/09/14/scient ... k-pardner/ . I was able to find her birth name, Rosalie Noelle Matlovsky, once I could connect the two with a marriage record.

Added Building Expansion Director Int Brandy Rae Shaw Harrison, born 1980, with her mother Peggy Nahas Shaw Crawford, her father Michael S. Shaw, step-father Michael Crawford, and a half-sister with completions, Erica Crawford. Brandy was surnamed Getto, in New York, a few years ago. Anybody know Brandy's present husband situation, since she is now surnamed Harrison?
