The CBS affiliate in Corpus Christi is educating the region on the cult of corporate Scientology and the underground railroad necessitated by its abuses:

Ben Herndon (contracting out of Prowler Investigations) of Corpus Christi (5910 Alameda Stree to be precise) is David Miscavige’s latest South Texas thug for hire. After much international publicity through 2011 and into 2012 concerning Miscavige’s Scientology Inc. thuggery at my home, no Scientology operatives dared rear their ugly heads in our vicinity. Miscavige continued to spend tens of thousands each month for an elaborate surveillance system to identify who came and went. But, they have taken extraordinary measures to be quiet and unseen.
Well, apparently my latest post, Introduction to Training Routines 0-9, struck a nerve. It is one thing I guess to expose Miscavige’s crimes, and quite another to attempt to put L. Ron Hubbard into a context in which he might be better appreciated by a wider number of people.
This charming fellow sat across the street in his blacked out vehicle filming my home this afternoon:
Ben Herndon of Prowler Investigations
After several minutes, Herndon had to be a tough and pull his vehicle across our wide drive way to make a show out of his filming. Only when I came out front weilding a camera did he speed off. Problem is he drove his white chrysler convertible sixty miles per hour down a 20 mph speed limit street. He nearly struck (and would have likely killed) a five year old girl and her puppy as he fled.
If Herndon comes to San Patricio County again he will be questioned by Sheriff’s deputies, and may well be arrested for reckless driving and child endangerment.
If Miscavige chooses to send anyone else – he had better require, within an inch of their lives, them to obey the law and respect my neighbors. Several of those neighbors have already retained counsel in contemplation of actions for the disruption Scientology Inc. has caused to their lives over the past couple years.
Herndon high tails it

The latest, and probably the last, chapter in the “Squirrel Buster” drama has been published in the February edition of Texas Monthly: the national magazine of Texas: His Town, by Jason Sheeler.
The link will take you to an excerpt of the beginning of the article. If you register below that (it is free), you can get access to the rest of the lengthy article.
For those who might have missed it, Corpus Christi Caller Times readers voted the SQB saga as the story of the year, and it too did a wrap up article a couple of weeks ago, Squirrel Busters Leave Ingleside on the Bay.
God bless the Orrs, the Isbells and the rest of the good people of Ingleside on the Bay Texas.

That is how the Corpus Christi Caller Times put it. Since Miscavige folded his tent by Corpus Christi bay in early November, apparently they have hibernated for the winter elsewhere. While in the scheme of things the Corporate Scientology operation had little impact on the Coastal Bend (several counties surrounding Corpus – the Times’ beat) in general, Miscavige’s antics earned a place on the ballot in the Caller Times reader’s poll top stories of the year in the region:
Squirrel Busters hibernate by the bay
Mark Rathbun moved to Ingleside on the Bay to start a new life away from the Church of Scientology. But as he, his wife and residents of the small community soon found out, a place away from the church doesn’t really exist.
Not when a documentary film crew is following your every move, that is.
“Squirrel” is church jargon for a heretic, and the Squirrel Busters — though the Church of Scientology has said they are not directly affiliated with the church — set out on a mission to make a movie about Rathbun defecting from the church, at any cost.Whether the film is now or will ever be in production, the group of Californians who followed Rathbun around South Texas managed to produce a lot of controversy.
Context from the Times
One hundred and ninety nine (199) days these bozos stayed in town. Their departure is a story in itself.
The final overt visit by the busters was the day I was arrested, 16 September. They stuck around another six weeks, literally hiding in the home they had leased less than 200 yards from ours.
They snuck out of town by cover of night while Mosey and I were on the east coast in the beginning of November. The lease of their squirrel headquarters down the street ran til mid-November. But they left on 2 November. That happened to be two days after our one-year lease ran out on our home. In my estimation, Miscavige had them stick around to get footage of us moving out of our home intending to post it as the accomplishment of their stated intention, to run us out of house and home town. By the first they could plainly see there was no sign of moving going on, and poof, they were gone the next day.
Here is SQB’s final overt encounter with me on the afternoon of 16 September 2011:
Mosey and I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you who helped us out through encouragement, energy, and friendship during the siege. This was no minor defeat you handed the little dictator.
