  Family Breaks Into Closed Jordan River Temple
TV news reports in Utah say that today a family forced their way into the LDS Church's Jordan River Temple, which is closed for the holidays, leading to an altercation with police. The family, including children ranging in age from infant to eight years old, was discovered on a third floor room, attempting to pray.

  LDS Pioneer Remembered In Local History
In the late 19th-centry, many brand-new Canadians were quickly realising how harsh life was in an area of the country which had been painted as a land of plenty. In order to maintain control over the entire territory, the Canadian government had to quickly settle the west. They knew the dry, timberless land would not appeal to locals, so they started large marketing campaigns in eastern Europe and the United States, emphasising free land.

  Independence Gingerbread Houses Called 'Imaginative'
The LDS Church's Visitor's Center at Independence, Missouri was called a "testament to the imagination and holiday spirit" of the LDS Church members there in an article in the Kansas City Star. The Visitor's Center exhibit includes 85 gingerbread constructions depicting landmark buildings from around the world. The exhibit's theme is "Good Tidings of Great Joy ... to All People."
