HEBER CITY — They gather — as many as 20,000 strong — in the name of “peace on Earth” and “harmony among all people,” but the arrival of the annual Rainbow Family Gathering of Tribes is resulting in warnings and concerns from local police and changes in plans for LDS Church activities in the area.

The gathering east of Heber City has also seen its first death — a 39-year-old woman from New Hampshire, Wasatch County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Jared Rigby confirmed. An autopsy was being performed, and the cause of death remained unknown, Rigby said.
