Prineville’s nativity scene controversy appears to be solved. The City Council Tuesday night rejected a resolution that would have the City oversee the Christmas display. Instead, private citizen Bob Orlando in Prineville will take on the project. He plans to work with churches, social clubs and groups like the ACLU to come up with a bigger display this Christmas: “Tthey're satisfied, the City is off the hook. We get to expand the display and keep it. That was the goal; to allow the City to continue with their Christmas decorations during the season.” As a private citizen, Orlando has rented the Parks and Rec land near City Hall to set up the display. This way the City has nothing to do with it, and isn't vulnerable to litigation because of the separation of church and state.
