From WTHI in Terre Haute:

A 12-foot statue of Julius Caesar is being removed from outside the Caesars Indiana casino along the Ohio River in southern Indiana.

The 750-pound statue of the Roman leader will be removed with a crane and flatbed truck Wednesday and given to Harrison County.

It's part of a makeover for the riverboat casino that will be renamed Horseshoe Southern Indiana sometime this summer. The casino was part of Harrah's Entertainment purchase of Caesars Entertainment and its 26 casinos in 2005 for $9.3 billion.

Harrison County Councilman Carl Mathes says he will store the statue on his farm until commissioners can figure out what to do with it.
