Mysterious protest at Sacred Heart Prep

Drivers along Valparaiso Avenue on Oct. 14 may have wondered why two men sat outside the gates of Sacred Heart Preparatory school holding a banner that read, "Shame on Sacred Heart."

Their purpose remains a mystery, since the two men refused to shed much light on why they were there. They did hand out a flier that warned, "Beware Astro Turf the synthetic turf company on your new athletic fields is currently in a lawsuit! Don't get caught up in the mess! Get out while you can!"

They declined to answer The Almanac's questions without first getting permission from whoever was responsible for the protest.

According to Astro Turf, the only lawsuit the company is currently involved in is a Michigan case against the manufacturer over an alleged patent infringement. However, Darren Gill, a spokesperson for plaintiff FieldTurf, said they "were in no way connected to whatever is happening at Sacred Heart Prep."

Sacred Heart has not yet installed the new fields, according to Millie Lee, the school's director of communications.
