In this 2008 photo, rewarded with a breathtaking view, people stand at the top of Table Rock near a 4,500-pound cross, in Boise. The prominent six-story cross whose 2,100 watts of white light has illuminated the night above Boise since 1956 is going green, and getting even brighter, the Associated Press reports today. The private group that owns the cross atop Table Rock is replacing its electricity-devouring fluorescent tubes with 2,600 energy-efficient LED lights that will cut the electricity bill from about $60 monthly to just $15. Story below. (Statesman photo: Darin Oswald)
