PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Richard Peirce wonâ€™t take credit for the idea to use his 1991 Cadillac DeVille to bring a message from God to people everywhere.
â€śGod put this idea in my mind,â€ť he said.
And if you havenâ€™t seen the vehicle, youâ€™re not looking hard enough.
With yellow lettering emblazoned against the carâ€™s maroon body color, the message is clear and startling: Judgment Day is Saturday, May 21, 2011 â€” eight weeks from today.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The fences are up, funding has been approved, and the demolition of the existing buildings is set to make way for the construction of Grace Place, a 24-unit housing complex for moderate-income seniors.
Tim Spence, a member of the Jefferson Area Lutheran Social Ministry (JALSM), said the $6.5 million project will be constructed at the corner of Pine and Gilpin streets on the site of the former Parenteâ€™s Pool Hall, directly across from First English Lutheran Church.
JALSM is constructing the apartment complex in partnership with TREK Development of Pittsburgh.
