Mustang school returns Nativity scene to school play

MUSTANG, Okla. (AP) -- After a one-year absence, Mustang school officials have decided to return a Nativity scene to an annual play at Lakehoma Elementary School.

Mustang Superintendent Karl Springer says he acted on advice from legal counsel when he yanked the Nativity from the play last December.

The baby Jesus was relocated from a feeding trough to a storage closet.

The removal sparked protest from concerned Christians and led to an emotional confrontation at a school board meeting.

Protesters organized a live Nativity across the street from the school auditorium on the night of the play.

Lakehoma Elementary's annual play this year will be at 9 AM and 1 PM Tuesday at the school.
