A Statue of Liberty constructed by Chuck Henning, who creates yard and garden art, is a temporary sight at the entrance to Indian Foothills Park. According to park Director Jeff Stubblefield, the likeness is on loan until the Sister of Liberty statue recently stolen is replaced.

A National Society Daughters of the American Revolution bench dedication ceremony is scheduled at the site on Monday, Oct. 1.

Such a shame. Excited for new one!

I remembered hearing we were getting a new Statue of Liberty, and when I saw this the other day, nothing makes me happier to know its just a temporary solution. Also, is there any hope of the old Statue returning? Do police have leads or anything? Have a nice day!!!!!!!!!!

Response by Eric Crump/Editor:
I have not talked to the police recently about the stolen statue, but Park Director Jeff Stubblefield recently said there has been nothing new in the search for the statue.

I wonder if they will secure the next one??????????
