In 2007, a large granite sculpture of the 10 Commandments found a home in front of the Dixie County Courthouse. Although it’s in a privately owned monument, the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida filed a lawsuit against Dixie County, which it won. But last week, Dixie County decided to appeal the decision. WUFT-FM’s Brittany Wienke reports.[audio:http://www.wuft.org/media/audio/ME Feature 7 28.mp3]
