Monticello Live reports on a "situation" this Saturday in Drew County.

A well-known national organization, with many individual chapters and branches, has scheduled a “rally” in the Florence Road area.

County, city, state, and other law enforcement agencies are aware of this planned activity, and will have extra patrol on duty, as needed.

Although very little information has been made public about the scheduled event, it is expected to be held Saturday evening, in a specifically designated area, by a “small group” of people, on private property.

Law-enforcement agencies request local residents take no action in response to this event, but just be aware that it is taking place, with their knowledge and awareness.

Many local pastors have discussed the situation and agree, “The best response to this situation is no reaction, at this time.”

Sheriff Mark Gober also requests local residents refrain from “sightseeing” in the area.
heriff Gober wants to assure Drew County resifents that they will be safe and protected.

Many readers have requested that MLive “just ignore” this potential situation; but as Monticello’s Daily News, that is not an option.

However, we have chosen not to use the common name or initials of the group in this article, to avoid Google searches for those phrases. We also will not post this article on Facebook, in an effort to prevent more out-of-town opinions affecting our hometown lives.

What's being discussed is a Ku Klux Klan rally.

A Klan website notes plans for a Klan rally in Monticello Saturday as well as in Vanndale in October. At that site, this note:

All events are open to legitimate KKK groups only. No weapons, attitudes or media are allowed. Cross lighting at dusk, food is provided but bring your own chairs. Motels are located 6 miles from the rally site. If you plan on attending any events notify the Imperial Wizard at impwizard1996@gmail.com

WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE ADMITTANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No guns? Haven't the knights heard of the 2nd Amendment?
