  • RESURRECTION: Work planned next week on base of a second version of the 10 Commandments monument knocked down on the Capitol grounds in
Here's the Saturday open line. The Biblical headlines refers to work soon to be underway on the Capitol grounds at the site where a resurrection of Jason Rapert's 10 Commandments monument is scheduled.

No official date is set yet. Chris Powell of the secretary of state's office sent a notice to media today advising that "there will be some repair and preparatory work done this next week on the BASE of the Ten Commandments monument but the monument itself will NOT be installed next week."

The first version was plowed down in July the day it was installed by a driver who'd done the same to a similar statue erected on the Oklahoma capitol grounds. Michael Reed remains in the State Hospital for mental evaluation and treatment.

Several parties plan to sue to knock down the second version by legal means for its encroachment on the establishment of religion on state property.
