10 Commandments Hung Monday In KY Courthouse

The halls of the Garrard County courthouse now look a little different than before.

A new ten commandments display was unveiled Monday morning, after the fiscal court voted unanimously to place it in the courthouse.

Garrard County Judge Executive John Wilson says this one is much different from a display that had to be removed last year, after it landed the county in court.

"The other display hung by previous administration and was a collection of historical documents, one of which was the 10 commandments," he said. "This is a different one; it is educational. It's to educate the public on the history of the 10 commandments."

Wilson says the new display chronicles the commandments from the beginning to the current day court battles. He says it shows both sides of the controversy.
