More than one hundred Prineville residents showed up at Tuesday night's City Council meeting to let them know they don't want the City's nativity scene to go away. Mayor Bette Roppe says residents were happy that the Council won't cave to political pressure. “The decision that the Council made is we will find a way to keep the nativity scene. We've had a lot of advice from lawyers and they are telling us we can do that.” Mayor Roppe has appointed a committee that will come up with a recommendation for the City Council to consider in two weeks.  In December, the City received a complaint from the "Freedom From Religion Foundation" out of Wisconsin, a national nonprofit group working to separate church and state.  They objected to the nativity display on City property.
