I don't know if anybody caught that story; it was in the April 5th edition (volume 120, number 14) of The East County Californian, a long-time newspaper in San Diego's East County Area (the towns of Lemon Grove, La Mesa, Spring Valley, Casa de Oro, El Cajon, Santee, Lakeside, Alpine.) The piece was entitled "No business, no revenue from empty building" written by Jake Christie.
Pretty much it lays out how the buildings have been empty since 2005, that no Scientology is going on in the buildings, and that the City of La Mesa would like to sell the property to developers, who would turn the site into more condos or apartments. Mr. Christie also points out that that the city is not happy with the "church" for letting the property rot.
Can we retype news stories? This one doesn't have an internet version.
