Lafayette residents are heated over a war memorial of 300 white crosses alongside Highway 24. According to the Chron, the display and accompanying sign, which reads "In Memory of 2,839 U.S. Troops Killed In Iraq," has touched off a wave of controversy, and even prompted one motorist to knock the sign down, which is on private land. The city council plans to discuss the issue at a meeting on Nov. 27.
