Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have received a lot of attention lately — some of it unwanted, such as the mistaken association with the FLDS polygamous groups. A group of Mormon scholars, however, hope to focus positive attention on unique LDS issues in an upcoming conference sponsored by the grassroots, volunteer organization FAIR — the Foundation for Apologetic Information and Research. The annual conference will be Aug. 7-8 at the South Towne Exposition Center in Sandy. Among the topics being presented at this year's conference are: Book of Mormon Geography, Philosophy and Mormonism, Joseph Smith's DNA Revealed, The White Horse Prophecy, the Book of Abraham, the Joseph Smith Papers and Shaken Faith Syndrome (based on the newly released book of the same title). The conference is open to the public. More information can be found at
