    Christmas is not far away, and as we do our shopping and baking, our thoughts turn to Christmas decorations. In England and in our Eastern states, mistletoe is an important part of Christmas.

    Four mature blue spruce trees were extricated from the Lake House grounds and transported to Stagecoach Park as part of a $4,000 package of improvements to the fields off Evergreen Parkway and Stagecoach Boulevard.
