Players needed for 10U baseball team that won’t play on Sunday

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I am starting a club baseball team in the south part of Las Vegas. Most club teams do a large part of there team activities on Sunday. This makes it impossible for LDS members to participate in a higher level of baseball and giving there players the greatest operertunity for advancement. We are a 10U team all player must not turn 11 before May 1, 2013. I am looking for 2 more players to fill out our team. I have already set up a season of baseball (14 games) and two tournaments none of which will happen on Sunday.

Smith Center working towards bringing Book of Mormon Musical to Las Vegas

mormon

In her column in today’s Review-Journal, Jane Ann Morrison reports that the Smith Center is actively working to bring the Book of Mormon Musical to Las Vegas.

In response to that column, I sent Ms. Morrison the following email:

Jane,

I enjoy reading your columns. You have a gift for writing.

I was a little perplexed by a comment in your column today about the Book of Mormon Musical:

Seven percent of Nevada’s population should not be able to decide what the other 93 percent can see.

My wife and I run a local blog (and Facebook group), Las Vegas LDS Neighbor, covering news and info for Clark County’s LDS population. We’ve mentioned several times in recent months the possibility of the Musical making its way to Vegas. The overwhelming feedback we’ve received has been indifference with some mild support and virtually no opposition.

You’ll recall that when the play debuted in New York there were no protests of any kind, on the street or in print. In fact, the institutional Church leveraged the play as an opportunity to expand the “…and I’m a Mormon” PR campaign.

Which brings me to my question, what makes you think that the entirety (or even a significant portion) of the LDS population in Nevada would be opposed to the play being shown here? Isn’t implication that “seven percent of Nevada’s population” is in opposition to the play being shown a bit presumptuous?

I have found that Nevada Latter-day Saints tend to be very “live and let live” in the way they interact with those around them.

I am interested in your response.

Thanks for your time.

Tom

Recently, the blog Worldwide Ward Cookbook featured a recipe for sweet corn bread submitted by Stephanie Leavitt of the Laurel Hills Ward, Black Mountain Stake.

“I love soup or chili during the holidays and this cornbread recipe is always a favorite on the side. It is so sweet and irresistable that my cousin ate it right out of the pan one night without butter or honey!” says Sister Leavitt.

You can see the recipe and pictures here.

From Kristin Conk:

Each year the youth of our church 14 and older in our area participate in a conference over the weekend, usually there is some service project and a dance as well as special speakers but this year we had the opportunity to participate in a mock pioneer trek. The Moapa Valley was originally settled by LDS saints and the original settlement was covered with water when Hoover Dam was built but with the water being so low at the lake the town of St. Thomas is now out of water. There was set to be a big day celebrating this pioneer heritage with melodramas and activities and descendants of the original settlers telling the stories of their ancestors. Our youth leaders thought that this would be a great opportunity to hold this mock trek to simulate what some of the pioneers in the early church went through. My dear father in law suggested my and my husbands names to be a “ma and pa” of one of the handcart companies. The trek would consist of 20 miles pulling a handcart (in full pioneer garb) down into St. Thomas and then back a little ways. Not to mention sleeping outside in the really cold weather.

MSNBC Video: Will Faith Be a Sticking Point for Romney’s Campaign?

Picture 6

Rick Warren is certainly correct that Mormons and Evangelicals disagree as to whether God, Jesus and the Holy Ghost are three separate persons.

However, this is relevant to the race for the Presidency how? If this is really a problem for Evangelical voters, there is probably nothing Romney can do to win them over.

From Article VI, Section III the Constitution of the United States:

…but no religious test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.
