    Huge Christmas lights

    SCOTTSBURG, Indiana. -- Mark Obermiller has put out 135,400 lights. He has connected them with five miles of extension cord. He expects a wattage bill alone of $800. He has already spent $40,000 in his Xmas lights.

    Lights are absolutely everywhere on and around Obermiller's house.

    They form words, characters and lines. There is also a parking lot for visitors.

    And there are sounds synchronized with the lights. Visitors tune to 88.7 FM, Obermiller's own radio station, for a Christian message and musical accompaniment.
