Group wants deputy's memorial moved from courthouse

The Madison-based Freedom From Religion Foundation wants a granite memorial to a fallen sheriff's deputy moved.

Jason Zunker was killed last year while he was directing traffic.

A black granite marker in his memory is located outside the Chippewa County courthouse.

Words Zunker had written -- in a letter to be opened if he died -- are etched into the granite.

They include a reference to God and the Bible.

The foundation challenges situations it feels violate the constitutional separation of church and state.
