  LDS Church says it's neutral on China trade bill
An LDS General Authority expressing strongly-held personal views apparently led some journalists to wonder if the LDS Church had taken a position on the Chinese free trade bill passed in the U.S. House of Representatives yesterday. Elder Donald L. Staheli of the Seventy met with some members of Congress prior to the vote on the measure and expressed his personal opinion of the leglislation. But at least one of the members of Congress that he spoke to said that Elder Staheli made it clear that the Church wasn't taking a position.

  U.S. Senate Confirms Two LDS Judges
In the wake of a deal struck Monday between Democrat and Republican leaders, the US Senate confirmed 16 Federal Judges, including LDS Church members Roger L. Hunt and Kent J. Dawson. Both men are from and will serve in Nevada, and were nominated by President Clinton at the suggestion of Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) who is also an LDS Church member, leading some in Nevada to criticize the nomination.

  The church works to improve its image in England
Spencer J. Condie, Area Authority President for the Northern Europe area of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has invited the BYU School of Family Life to travel to England. Four BYU professors from the School of Family Life will help the English government to strengthen families and build morale. James Harper, Wendy Watson, Randal Day and Thomas Holman will offer lectures and firesides relating to surviving the teen years, strengthening marriages, single parenting and finding a marriage partner.

  Erie Canal celebrates a landmark anniversary
