    The Ten Commandments monument is back at Chiefland City Hall on East Park Avenue, restored to its old spot on the front lawn on Thursday, April 2.

    The current monument, which uses tablets from Anderson's monument molded to a new pedestal, now bears the label: "The Ten Commandments." Anderson removed his monument from Chiefland in November 2011.
