  Walnut Creek Expells 'Flasher the Clown' from Parade
A self-described devout Mormon has been expelled from Walnut Creek's annual Walnut Festival Parade after townspeople complained that his 28-year-old act is offensive. Bob Manion has appeared in the parade, and several others, as "Flasher the Clown" since 1973. In his act he opens his coat to reveal a small terrier sticking out of the top of his pants.

  Local Church Leader Missed By Many
CARDSTON, AB, CANADA -- Someone can certainly do a lot in 82 years. They can touch a lot of people's lives. Even more so through service in the Church. Grant Matkin, of Cardston, passed away over a week ago in the Cardston Auxiliary Hospital. Matkin, who married his wife Clara nearly sixty years ago, touched more lives than just those of his six children, 26 grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.

  75-year-old LDS Judge Chafes at Mandatory Retirement Law
3rd District Court Judge, Homer Wilkinson will celebrate his 75th birthday on Saturday and become the first Utah state judge to be forced into retirement by a 1996 statute that capped judicial service at the age of 75. "I've worked all my life. It's what my life is all about," said Wilkinson. He declined to comment on the law, but said that it was a mistake for the Utah Supreme Court to have included "senior judges" under the forced retirement umbrella.
