Billboard with message of faith fulfills 46-year-old dream for Merced woman

Elaine Carr, a 71-year-old Merced grandmother, saved up for months to buy six months of display time on the 10-by-24-foot billboard on the southbound side of Santa Fe Drive near Highway 59. Since she doesn't attend a church, she considers the cost of the billboard her tithe — or the part of her income she gives back to God.
