"[It very possible, you know. It still depends on what happens in those communities. This one is definitely in the position to build on or make bigger. It pretty secluded, it fenced in and locked in, different than Hildale and Colorado City where you can drive through them and drive around," Wheeler said.
Najacht publishes a string of local newspapers, including the Custer County Chronicle. He has followed the FLDS story closely and believes sexual abuse is going on at all of the church compounds, including the one near Pringle.
PRINGLE, SD The polygamist sect known as the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints or FLDS, has had a compound 15 miles southwest of Pringle in the Black Hills for almost a decade. Some estimates say as many as 200 people live on the property. That number, however, could go much higher as the fundamentalist group comes under increased pressure in other parts of the country.
"They digging a huge foundation for something, now. There speculation that it could be a temple, who knows? But it just keeps on going, it keeps on growing, and it not stopping," Najacht said.
"Nobody in Custer County likes it. We don like that compound here. It not that they bad neighbors, it that they doing bad things," Custer County Chronicle publisher Charley Najacht said.

The sect, which broke away from the mainstream Mormon Church in the 1800s, still practices polygamy and arranged marriages with young girls. Jeffs is currently serving a life sentence in Texas for sexually assaulting two young girls whom he described as his spiritual wives. Evidence presented during the trial showed Jeffs fathered a child with one of the girls, who was only 15 years old.
"I mean, there been building going on all through the summer and all of a sudden it stops and there nothing and the projects were never really completed either," Wheeler said.
If sect members are eventually evicted from the Texas compound, some are concerned that South Dakota could be their next stop.
