Seattle-area Zoning Fight Leads Church to Support Amendment
The zoning fight that pitted local churches against environmentalists over the size of rural King county, Washington churches has led to an effort to change the county's charter. A representative of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints joined a Catholic representative in arguing for the amendment, which would add language guaranteeing religious freedom. But council members who supported the environmentalists in the earlier effort questioned the need for the change because the amendment's language is identical to that in the Washington state constitution.

ACLU Says Missionary Discounts Illegal
After a Catholic woman complained about discounts available to LDS missionaries in Utah restaurants, the American Civil Liberties Union has called the discounts illegal and asked the Utah Attorney General to look into the practice. The woman, Judy Bruyette, complained after eating at Rodizio Grill in Orem on a Wednesday. The restaurant refused to give her and a Catholic priest eating with her the same 15% discount it offered to LDS missionaries and their families on Wednesdays.
