      Shepherd's Garden Park Refuses Public Grant Money

      The group behind the Shepherd's Garden Park that's being built right now on the site of the former YWCA declined the 140-thousand dollar Vision Iowa grant.Shepherd's Garden says it just got other private donations that let them refuse the grant. That Vision Iowa grant became controversial last month after a Wisconsin atheist group objected to public money being spent on a park with religious symbols.The park is still being built. It should open in September.
