A Baldwin Borough man has been ordered to remove a 24-foot illuminated cross from his front yard after a neighbor complained.
Carl Behr received a notice Monday ordering him to remove the cross from his property within five days. He said he plans to fight the order.
Lisa Fera, a neighbor across the street, said the large, lighted cross shines into her living room and bedroom. She said the problems started after she complained about Mr. Behr parking vehicles from his construction business in front of her house.
Mr. Behr said the cross proclaims his faith in God, but Ms. Fera contends a good Christian would respect his neighbors.
