SHARE NEO-NAZI MEETING WRAPS UP QUIETLY

The second annual national meeting of white supremacist skinheads wrapped up this weekend without incident at the Idaho Panhandle compound of Aryan Nations' leader Richard Butler.

Kootenai County Sheriff's Lt. Gary Cuff said only one citation for a minor traffic violation was issued to a person attending the meeting.In contrast to last year's meeting that drew some 60 neo-Nazi youths and 1,000 demonstrators opposing racism and bigotry, there was no activity outside the Aryan Nations compound at Hayden Lake.

"Sometimes it's very important not to give too much attention to the gathering of a very, very small group," said Tony Stewart, president of the Northwest Coalition Against Malicious Harassment, which helped organize last year's counter demonstration.
