The religious sign New Concord residents erected two weeks ago in response to the ACLU forced removal of The Good Shepard painting was officially dedicated on October 28th. Between 25 and 30 people gather at the sign located at Terry and Cathy Hodgson’s house on Friendship Drive near the entrance of the East Muskingum Schools for prayer and worship. Congressman Bill Johnson addressed the crowd in support of the sign. Johnson says “That sign standing out there is going to cause a lot of people to stop and think about where their lives are and where they’re going”. He also says the strength of our nation is not in our government or institutions, but God. Local pastors, musicians, and students were also part of the sign dedication. Zanesville attorney Jeanette Moll is the coordinator of the event. She also led and organized the sign project.
The Muskie Volleyball team hosted the Wilmington Quakers for senior night this year. The lone senior for the Muskies this season is Alexa Abrams and she couldn’t have asked for a better night.
The Muskies took the game in straight sets beating Wilmington 25-17, 25-22, and 25-5.
The match was capped off by the Muskie team setting up Abrams for the final point on the night. The Muskies attempted to assist Abrams four times during the final point.
With the win the Muskies keep their playoff hopes alive with the win as they are searching for that eighth tournament spot in the OAC.
The Muskies (16-14, 2-6) will play John Carroll and can guarantee a tournament birth with a win and a Capital loss to Heidelberg tonight.
