A southern Illinois landmark unveils a new-look just in time for Christmas.  Officials with the Bald Knob Cross of Peace in Carbondale showed off the completion of a three-year restoration project on the state's tallest peak last Saturday.  The "Southern Illinoian" says caretakers spent years overseeing the half-million-dollar project to refurbish one of Illinois' biggest tourist destinations.  

Among the improvements are 40-ten-thousand-watt vandalism-proof spotlights and security cameras.
