ACWORTH, Ga. (AP) — A suburban Atlanta man has restored a Bible
that belonged to Martin Luther King Jr. so that it can be used in
President Barack Obama's inauguration. The Marietta Daily Journal
reports (http://bit.ly/XhH6Qb) that Gordon Ponsford of Acworth
contracted with the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social
Change to prepare the Bible for Obama's inauguration ceremony on Monday.Ponsford said the work involved reattaching leather to the slain civil rights leader's traveling Bible.Ponsford's assistant, Julie Julian of Wildwood, compared the word to taking a raggedy doll and making it look new again.
