My colleague Bernie Davidow reports:
The giant illuminated Christian cross that once dominated the Waterbury night — and was the centerpiece for a religious attraction called Holy Land, U.S.A. — would be restored under a plan announced Friday by Waterbury Mayor Neil O’Leary.
O’Leary said he and a friend, Fred “Fritz” Blasius, joined forces to form a limited liability company that will buy the 17-acre Holy Land property on a hill just south of I-84. He said that he had “personally” formed the partnership — Holy Land Waterbury, U.S.A. — with Blasius, and that the two had signed a purchase and sale agreement on June 20.
