LYNDON -- Joan and Richard Downing, owners of the Chapel of The Holy Family on Darling Hill Road, earlier this year won a nearly five year crusade to keep their cross on Darling Hill Road.

In her ruling, Vermont Environmental Court Judge Merideth Wright declared the controversial 24-foot-high illuminated cross can remain as is outside the stone chapel. The ruling also allows the couple to illuminate the cross for three periods of religious observance, but only for an hour at sunset each night, not dusk-to-dawn as they wanted.
