Teen Girls Fleeing Polygamous FLDS Church While Green Children Seek Leniency for Father
An associated press article appearing in newspapers around the nation today tells the story of a 15-year-old girl who has walked away from the largest polygamous group, the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, at the same time that a Reuters article reports that polygamist Tom Green's wife and children are pleading for his return to the family ahead of his sentencing Friday. Caroline Cooke says she now feels free living on her uncle's Colorado farm, and the anti-polygamy groups supporting her are calling for a 14-year-old, Ruby Jessop, to be released by the Hilldale, Utah-based FLDS Church because she is being held against her will.

First Sunstone Placed on Nauvoo Temple
The Nauvoo Temple started to look a more like the original Nauvoo Temple on Monday when the first Sunstone was put into place on the outside of the building. The stones, carved to look like the original stones, cap limestone pilasters around the outside of the building. Moonstones and starstones will also be featured on the pilasters, which look like columns embedded into the side of the building.

Stamford Ward to Hold Family History Festival Saturday
Neil Thompson thought his relatives came from Great Britain and the United States, but thanks to a helpful neighbor, he has discovered the Family History Center and found ancestors in Australia, New Zealand, and India. The 62-year-old English native knew there was an enormous amount of information compiled by the Mormons, but he thought the records were only in Salt Lake. Fortunately neighbor Sherry Young, mother of former NFL great Steve Young, told Thompson he could access many of those records at her chapel - The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Stamford.
