Everett police to host 7th Annual “Shop with a Cop” event

This December, the Everett Police Officers Association will host the 7th Annual Shop with a Cop event. However, children will not shop with police officers at a physical store this year. Instead, children will make a Christmas wish list and later this month officers will meet with the children to give them their gifts, get Santa photos and enjoy treats with hot cocoa.

"New Wintergreen Varieties are a Holiday Hit," By the Whistling Gardener

Now that the thrill of summer has passed and the warm colors of fall are fading with each passing storm, our eyes should be being drawn to attractive broadleaf plants like Hollies, Aucubas, Fatsias, and Nandinas; and of course plants that have berries like Pyracantha, Cotoneaster, Snowberry, and Beauty Berry.
