KUTV last night had a story about an 18-year-old named Carl Holm, who recently graduated Brighton High School in Cottonwood Heights.
Holm says three years ago he left the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Colorado City, Ariz., and arrived at Brighton as a sophomore. The KUTV story is embedded above or you can click here to find it.
The common story in Short Creek, the collective name for Colorado City and Hildale, Utah, is one of boys being evicted for some trivial offense in order to make room for men to take more wives. I’ve only heard a few stories of teens leaving voluntarily.
Holm’s story has one similarity, however. He says he can’t go back.
