Nativity scene placement causes controversy

AP – “Plans to include a live nativity scene in the Springhill Branch Library’s outdoor courtyard have created some controversy in this north Webster Parish city after library officials reportedly said no to anything with “religious tones,” said Letha Dew, who’s heading up the Main Street Program’s Christmas event planning. So the nativity scene by the First Assembly of God youth group will be portrayed next month on the triangle-shaped property at the head of Main Street owned by the city of Springhill. It will be among the numerous church, choir and handbell groups spread out up and down Main Street to entice visitors to walk the area and take part in the holiday spirit.”
