Strength in numbers

Concerning the “Thou Shall Not Move” group: When this thing started about the removal of the Ten Commandments monument from the grounds of Connellsville Junior High School, there were so many people interested in it.

At the first rally in front of the monument at Junior High East, there were around 150 people. On Sept. 12, 2012, after another rally, we all walked down to the vo-tech facility, where the school board was having a meeting. We wanted to show our support for keeping the monument where it stood for 50 years.

There was standing room only.

Where are all these people?

At our last meeting on Jan. 23, there wasn't even 20 people attending.

Pastor Ewing Marietta and Gary Colatch are doing a wonderful job keeping the movement alive. This is our chance for a small community to make a huge difference. The group is not going away, so if you are still interested in preserving your freedoms, come join us.
