  Elder Hugh Pinnock Dead At 66
Salt Lake City's KTVX TV4 reported this evening that Elder Hugh W. Pinnock of the First Quorum of the Seventy died today after a short illness. Elder Pinnock has served as an LDS General Authority for the past 23 years, including as one of the quorum's seven presidents and as general president of the Church's Sunday School. He was 66.

  LDS Church Goes With Large In New Plaza Creches
The LDS Church is following dozens of local LDS congregations and has created a display of Christmas Creches from around the world. But the Church's display is also very different from these displays; instead of hundreds of creches, the Church's display, on its new main street plaza, has just four, the creches were created by Church-commissioned artisans, while those in other displays were generally purchased or made by private individuals, and the figures in the creche's are much larger than usual -- 2 feet (.6 meters) to 4 feet (1.2 meters) high.

  FLDS Colony In Canada Gets Attention Of Canadian Press
Men in this quiet BC community in the Creston Valley aren't limited to just one mate. A 2-page feature article on a fundamentalist colony in the "Crowsnest" region of British Columbia, in the extreme SE corner of the province, appeared in the Toronto Globe and Mail this past weekend.

  Tanner Copyright Lawsuit Officially Settled
The lawyer for LDS Church critics Jerald and Sandra Tanner confirmed Wednesday that the Church has signed a settlement agreement and that the agreement was accepted by US District Judge Tena Campbell last Friday. The lawsuit targeted the Tanners because their Utah Lighthouse Ministry's website posted pages from the Church's General Handbook of Instructions in violation of the copyright law. In what became a very controversial move, the Church also challenged the website's subsequent posting of links to other sites that contained the material.

  Missionaries At Work In Tennessee
Over 160 missionaries are currently serving proselyting missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the West Tennessee, East Arkansas and North Mississippi areas. Two of those young men are Elder Nicholas Ludwig and Elder Nathan Bleak. Dressed in crisp white shirts, neckties, riding bikes and carrying backpacks, the two elders often walk or ride long distances to go from door to door.
