Skyline Equipment remind drivers of Christmas

Dougherty County -- A South Georgia equipment company wants to remind people the reason for the Christmas season.

If you drive on on Highway 19 South of Albany at night, you may notice a 40-foot lighted cross.

The message "Christ died for me and you" also flashes at the foot of that cross. The display hangs from a crane at the Skyline Equipment company.

"I think the gift giving and all is great, going to another and the love and all. But Jesus has the free gift, Salvation, and that's an awesome gift to receive from the Lord," said Co-owner of Skyline Equipment, Ronnie Poole.

It took employees a day and a half to build the cross.

In past years they put up a decorated Christmas tree. But Poole says he'll hang the cross from now on during the holidays.
