Omagh's LDS Survivor Still Suffering
More than three years after the worst atrocity in Northern Ireland's 30-year-long civil war, known as the Troubles, LDS Church member Marion Radford is still suffering from the blast, struggling to overcome its deep psychological wounds, caused both by her own injuries, and by the death of her 16-year-old son, Alan. Events like the terrorist attacks on the Pentagon and World Trade Center, a detailed public inquest into the bombing and the recent discovery of a 130-pound pipe bomb just 12 miles from Omagh, keep the tragedy fresh in her mind, leading to new rounds of panic and depression.

Mormon 'Father of Video Games' Back with New Company
Nolan Bushnell, the inventor of "Pong" and the Atari 2600 home video-game system, is ready to eat up our quarters again. Bushnell, an inactive member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has started a new company in California that makes arcade games for the next generation of gamers.

LDS Mother Relies on Faith for Safety of Missionary Sons
During the October session of General Conference, President Hinckley mentioned that the war on terrorism might affect missionary work for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. While there hasn't been any sweeping policy change, some foreign missions in the church have advised their missionaries not to wear backpacks, American coats or the black tags that identify them as missionaries.

BYU-Idaho teacher spends year in China

The Greenes returned to the United States this summer after spending almost a full year in China teaching English as part of a program sponsored by Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.
