NIdaho Polygamists Draw Attention

In the scenic international border region where Idaho’s Panhandle meets British Columbia, polygamy is a way of life for hundreds – the open secret that’s gone untouched by authorities until now. The arrests in Canada last month of two fundamentalist Mormon leaders are bringing renewed interest to their polygamous communities near Creston, B.C., and loyal followers living just across the border in Idaho’s Boundary County/Bill Morlin, SR.

Question: Are you concerned that a polygamist community of hundreds spills over the British Columbia border into Boundary County, Idaho? Or do you believe that polygamist communities are OK, unless they cause their neighbors trouble?
