FLDS members taking property off ranch

- We went to Eldorado Thursday and got reaction from Eldorado residents about the group that's lived near Eldorado since Warren Jeffs first started sending members of the FLDS church to West Texas.

Local officials are overseeing FLDS members removing their property from the YFZ ranch. While officials are not speaking on camera, they did confirm they are overseeing the process.

Current Eldorado residents are glad this chapter of their life may soon be over.

"I'm a Christian. That's what I stand for, that's what I represent, and I don't agree with what goes on out at the compound," stated Eldorado resident Madolyn Phillips.

The 51st Judicial Court directed the state to take the property January 6th. This is the next stage in the process.

"I'm going to be happy when it's all over," continued Phillips.

Pearl Vinlove has lived in Eldorado for almost two decades. She says she remembers when the ranch residents first moved to Eldorado.

 "Well, personally I'm glad they failed. I cannot sympathizewith their beliefs or their family practices at all," Vinlove said.

She says she hopes soon this will all be behind residents.
