CLINTON, TN (News Sentinel) — In a ceremony punctuated by frequent shouts of amen and applause, a plaque bearing the national motto, "In God We Trust," was unveiled Tuesday over one entrance to the Anderson County Courthouse.

About 175 people gathered to watch the unveiling, the culmination of weeks of Anderson County Commission discussions and a marathon installation effort that ended late Monday.

The black granite plaque, weighing about 170 pounds with inscribed gold leaf lettering, is the first of four such signs to be placed over each of the courthouse entrances.

The other signs will be put in place later this week, Anderson County Mayor Terry Frank said. Private donations paid the $4,812 cost to create and install then.
