Janine Marnien The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has placed an emphasis on emergency preparedness since World War II. Seven local churches Saturday will share what they've learned with the community at large. The churches will hold an emergency-preparedness fair, providing information helpful in allowing families to be self-sustaining -- for months on end if need be. The event is open to the public. "As the year 2000 approached, a lot of people went out and stockpiled food and water, and then when nothing happened, they got rid of it," said Carol Bruegge, coordinator of the fair.

Alecia Foster NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- There's no rotation process and no campaigning when it comes to choosing a new leader at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. However, there is much praying and discussion. "The Lord knows who he wants here, we just have to find out who he's chosen," said Kent Lee, relating a saying church members have when it comes to finding new leaders. This time around, it was Lee who was chosen to lead as president of the church's Glendale Stake, which encompasses seven wards, or Latter-day Saints congregations, in the Glendale area.
