    The Ten Commandments monument is on its way back to the front lawn of Chiefland City Hall in the same spot where it was located.

    It's pretty much the same monument that was removed a couple of years ago but with a new message on its foundation. “It should be there in a week or so because it is being reconfigured,” said the monument's owner, Dr. Jerry Nash of Harmony Baptist Association.

    The old monument read on the footer: Love God, and keep his Commandments. The top portion was a condensed version of the commandments.
