Whitehall will be a bit brighter this holiday season. The star/cross replacement project has been completed and will be lit following Thanksgiving this year. The star/cross had been a Whitehall holiday-season staple for the city for decades until it deteriorated to the point where it was no longer usable in recent years. Efforts to replace the star/cross began in 2019 and the project was finished in October, in time for the 2020 holiday season. While costs for the replacement of the structure have all been paid, the committee in charge is still accepting donations for maintenance, those can be mailed to Star & Cross Fund, PO Box 455, Whitehall, WI 54773.             (Times photograph by Andrew Dannehy)
