Maybe something happened to the CSW and it never made it to the MAA?<snip>
I was walking through the MAA's office to check the outer door when a "CSW" on her desk caught my eye. It was a CSW to send me to the RPF. Here I was, the single person responsible, at that moment, for all the security of the AOLA delivery building, being sent to the RPF the next day. Kind of blew my mind.
I decided I'd rather be declared and kicked out. I don't know if I would have stuck with that decision because, for some unknown reason, I was never actually sent to the RPF.
That was a special muster after post hours to ordain some of us as "ministers." Doing the Minister's Course and getting ordained were targets on an emergency program to circumvent trouble with immigration/visas. I am Canadian.Well, there is photographic proof. There I am, always in the far back, never paying attention. Yep! Hated those musters.
It was also a crash program for us citizens, when military conscription was brought back under President Jimmy Carter.That was a special muster after post hours to ordain some of us as "ministers."

In 1983, I arrived at AOLA from the East Coast ( FCDC) as Public....to do 1-3.
Nicole Sims was my reg.....
I read her name mentioned above in a post....and was wondering if anyone knows why she left the SO.
I guess this was years later....but don't recall the time frame.
As Public....I didn't have all the insider info you SO did....
Also was aware that her husband, Harold, the OT3 sup at the time had been sent to Flag for some training.....and some snafu happened. But again, I don't know what.
So, I think they both left....but don't know for sure.
Years later, I saw Nicole driving a nice Corvette in some business parking lot off Sunset Blvd in Hollywood.....but didn't get to say hi.
When I got to LA and AOLA.....I ended up renting Steve Miller's couch/living room....for a place to stay. Ended up being there for years.
He was a non-SO Qual guy at AOLA.
Edited: Use to see Mike Silverman all the time in the AO lobby. He use to promote that people get into Trading Commodity Futures.....to make a lot of money to get up the bridge.....( at least that is what I heard. ) Never saw any magic tricks.....
Anyway....was just wondering about Nicole Sims....and what happened at AOLA. And what happened with Harold at Flag.
The Nicole deal is a long story.
Here's the Cliff Notes version of what I know. There may be more I don't know.
Harold was at Flag training. I think he went around 1989 or so. He was gone a LONG time. After he was gone around a year Nicole started wigging out, primarily about her marriage. Ivan tried to get Harold to come back so he and Nicole could work things out but Harold was not permitted to go. This was another Bitty Miscavige directive. (Those of you who have read my posts over the years know I'm a big fan of hers... )
There were FSMs that used to hang out in the reg offices. One guy named Brian Haney used to hang out in Nicole's office all the time. She started going out after post time with him. Somehow I think she was going to the gym? I don't know why I think that. Anyway, long story short, she blew with him and "went out-2D".
They got her back and she routed out "standardly" so she didn't get declared.
Obviously Nicole and Harold split up. Harold left the SO. I have heard he died in an unnatural way. I never got the details. I think I heard somewhere he committed suicide. I don't actually know. If anyone else has more info I'd like to hear it.
Nicole wound up marrying Brian. I think they're still together. She was working as an FSM in PAC when I was last there. She now works as some kind of a consultant at one of those (presumably) owned Scientology Management companies. She does or did work for a company that deals with people who own car dealerships.
She also wrote a children's book a few years back.

That's pretty much what I know. She's on Facebook as Nicole Wheldon. I don't think she'll talk to you if she knows you're not "in good standing", though.
