TOWN DENIES CHURCH YOUTH GROUP'S REQUEST TO MEET AT CEMETERY

A Nebraska church's youth group has been denied permission to meet at a local cemetery -- perhaps because it's the best of times, and the worst of times, to explore death and the hereafter. The teens from Christ the King Catholic Church in Gering had hoped to meet after dark on the night before Halloween at West Lawn Cemetery. Their youth leader wanted to let teens inspect tombstones for ten to 15 minutes, and then consider their own eternal destiny. The Gering City Council rejected the request, but said it might consider allowing the youth group to meet at the cemetery during daylight hours at another time of year.
