City tree arrives
GETTING READY City workers Robert Randle, right, and Michael Blanks steady the city's Christmas tree in front of City Hall.
Mayor John Robert Smith went to Lazy Acres Christmas Tree Farm to cut the tree.
Workers said it will take two days to trim and decorate the tree and ready the grounds for the city's annual Christmas parade and Christmas tree lighting Thursday.
