Cheyenne County Courthouse, 'In God We Trust' Campaign

SIDNEY, Neb. - Barb Otto met with the Cheyenne County Commissioners Monday morning about something she has noticed missing from Nebraska court houses. The national motto “In God We Trust” is not on any of the courthouse walls.

Otto, who is a non-profit or subsidized volunteer, said that Cheyenne County is the 44th county she has met with regarding the issue and it has taken her two years to get this far. None of the 44 counties have had the motto posted.

While presenting her idea across the state, in one instance she received disapproval expressed by an individual stating, “We are very diverse and we have to be very careful.” Otto responded by saying, “No we don’t, this is America. When people come here, they need to assimilate to our ways, our country and our constitution.”  

Otto said that she has put up three signs at her local courthouse in O’Neill, and each one only cost about $27.

The Commissioners will review the matter with the County Attorney before making a final decision.
