Noted and passed -- Jan. 2, 2012

• News reports of the funeral of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il -- filmed by that country's government-controlled media, of course -- featured common citizens wailing in grief over the death of their beloved leader. Problem is, there didn't seem to be any genuine tears, just lots of contorted facial expressions. Think there's any chance that was all staged?

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree…

One of the reasons I pursued a career in community forestry is because I like trees and people. They both fascinate and amaze me. The latter more so now-a-days that I am working for a municipality. I've been astounded and a bit bewildered at the dismay and disappointment from citizens, co-workers and acquaintances alike regarding this year's Christmas tree at City Hall. Since I am a public servant and feel accountable for my actions as such, please allow me to shed some light on why we have such a unique tree.
