Neighbor objects to FLDS tower in South Dakota

The Associated Press/March 17, 2007

Rapid City South Dakota -- A neighbor is objecting to an ''ominous and creepy'' tower built on property owned by a polygamous sect.

''It looks pretty much identical to what you would see at a prison compound,'' said Jim Farmer, who owns a home and 400 acres next to the compound of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

He said the nearly 40-foot tower near Pringle has a metal base with windows and panes at the top that slant down. There are communication antennae on top.

The Pringle compound was suspected to be one of the hiding places of church leader Warren Jeffs, who was on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list until his arrest in Nevada.
