Beaver County Courthouse Features A Menorah For The First Time

The Beaver County Courthouse is featuring a Menorah on its front lawn for the first time this year. The Menorah joins a Christmas tree which was installed by county government in front of the courthouse steps.

While the Christmas tree was erected at taxpayers’ expense, the Menorah comes courtesy of a private donation by William Braslawsce.

Braslawsce is an attorney who serves as an assistant public defender for the county.

The Menorah became a subject of controversy this week after an unnamed citizen saw its placement in front of the courthouse and approached officials asking if they could build a Nativity scene to accompany the Christmas tree.

Great! I love the idea of celebrating Hanukkah this time of the year. I would welcome a Creche also. I am tired of the minority pushing their non religious platforms.

Once again “The Done” acts alone! He thinks he’s the king of BC. That’s why we should not have reelected him. Now we’re stuck for another four years 😱! Hopefully Mac can keep him in line, and Amadeo could help if he ever grows a set.
