I live in Las Cruces, NM, it is called "The Crosses" and it is represented by Three Crosses.
Recently, over the past 10 years we had an influx of "retirees" buying up all our cheap homes, prices soared, but they kept coming and buying more and
more (but creating no more jobs), so our only industry is retail sales (low pay). At any rate, one of the first things that the "retirees" tried to
do is make the city take down the emblem from our City, they said that it may be offensive to others. There was a big campaign with bumper stickers
and signs, "Save the Crosses", and it was unanimous the Crosses are Las Cruces!
Our Mountains are called the "Organs", and here is a fabulous website for all to enjoy: Ramblin'
Cameras--Organ Mountain Galleries
City of Las Cruces, official website
(note the three crosses)
We also have the actual three crosses standing about 30 ft high on Main street.
