Same statue, different name planned for judicial center
http://www.rrstar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/200607...

OREGON A statue originally tagged Demeter Over Illinois by its artist, will stand in front of the Ogle County Judicial Center as early as this fall, with one major modification its name.

Warned by some area religious leaders and several board members that the name Demeter, Greek goddess of the harvest, might unnerve the some of the countys Christian residents, the county board voted to change the name last month to Agriculture, Mother of Civilization.

Now, some ministers say theyre pleased with the county boards decision to give the five-and-a-half-foot tall statue what they see as a more appropriate tagline. But the statues sculptor, David Seagraves, sees the change as a bit of a cop-out.

1. C'mon.
I have been posting about this for months, in the Illinois forum, in the rural/farm forum, and in the progressive Christians forum.

This is my county seat. I was heavily involved in the fight to keep the statue.
